IRC logs of #boinc for Tuesday, 2008-04-01

00:03 <PovIpod> log just updated

00:04 <PovIpod> Didactylos: if I set version to 2.0, firefox gives a different error

00:05 *** frost has joined #boinc

00:05 <PovIpod> but it's like a different wording of the same "function not recognized"

00:05 <Didactylos> Heh. I can identify the problem - didn't say anything about fixing it....

00:05 <frost> hi all

00:05 <PovIpod> fair enough :)

00:06 <Didactylos> Version 1 has some string functions. So it the old fashioned way?

00:06 <PovIpod> if Firefox really doesn't support 2.0, maybe it should error when it sees that version attribute

00:07 <PovIpod> you mean reading /profile/@xml:base? tried and failed

00:10 <PovIpod> what do you think of the XML format? overkill?

00:11 <zombie67> pov:  status on the big IMP project?

00:11 <PovIpod> "what IMP project?"

00:12 <PovIpod> I have been trying to finish PG screensaver before Ryty

00:12 <PovIpod> damn

00:13 <PovIpod> ...before Rytis flies here to kick my a$$

00:13 <PovIpod> and helping with this wiki mess

00:14 <PovIpod> and then the new little things that show up like profile RPC or trying to debug the LHC crash

00:15 <PovIpod> I'm multitasking way too much

00:16 <zombie67> heh

00:16 <PovIpod> maybe I should start taking medication against ADD

00:16 <zombie67> just curious

00:16 <PovIpod> ...again...

00:17 <PovIpod> dammit

00:17 <PovIpod> a few minutes of typing and this screen is *made of* fingerprints...

01:35 <Tank_Master> what trick did he use?

01:36 <zombie67> couldn't tell

01:36 <Tank_Master> sucks to be him

01:36 <wdsmia> asks Tank_Master to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

01:36 <zombie67> I looked at his stuff at other projects

01:36 <zombie67> nothing suspicious looking

01:36 <Tank_Master> huh

01:36 <zombie67> yeah

01:36 <zombie67> no 5.5.0

01:36 <zombie67> maybe messing with benchmarks?

01:37 <Tank_Master> the reported flops ok?

01:37 <Tank_Master> im wondering if he set his flops manually

01:40 <zombie67> cant tell from AI, because he had his machines hidden there.

01:40 <zombie67> on other projects, they were open

01:41 <zombie67> on one hand, I wonder if he was a victim of "those guys" not liking a strong cruncher.  He had only 45k of credits, if I recall correctly.

01:41 <Tank_Master> only?

01:41 <zombie67> OTOH, his machines were hidden

01:42 <zombie67> 45k is not that much:

01:42 <Romulus> <> (at

01:43 <zombie67>

01:43 <Romulus> <> (at

01:44 <zombie67> wow.  BS doesn't even show his AI rise and climb any more.  it's just .....gone

01:45 <zombie67> but as you can see from his chart, nothing dramatic with the credits.

01:45 <zombie67> pretty normal looking

01:45 <Tank_Master> up intill 2 days ago

01:45 <Tank_Master> when there is a big drop

01:46 <zombie67> yeah, about 45k

01:46 <Tank_Master> yep

01:46 <zombie67> makes me think he really wasn't up to any nefarious stuff

01:46 <Tank_Master> dunno

01:47 <Tank_Master> and just becuse he doesnt respond shouldnt mean anything

01:47 <zombie67> right

01:47 <Tank_Master> I never check my accounts

01:47 <zombie67> not all of us are forum hounds

01:47 <Tank_Master> yep

01:47 <zombie67> and the default is to NOT get email notifications

01:47 <zombie67>

01:47 <Romulus> <> (at

01:48 <zombie67> looks like he has a Quad, a PD and a P4.

01:48 <zombie67> and a RAC of ~2500

01:49 <zombie67> is that way off??

01:49 <zombie67> don't think so

01:49 <Tank_Master> all way

01:49 <Tank_Master> say*

01:49 <Tank_Master> thats to low

01:49 <zombie67> yeah, I am not seeing the evil

01:50 <Tank_Master> nor am I

01:51 <zombie67> and I get the impression from the AI guys....they seem a bit, er, naive.  Yet they act like they are very sure of themselves.

01:51 <Tank_Master> heh

01:51 <Tank_Master> yeah

01:51 <zombie67> 80% validated!  That is fine.  Carry on

01:51 <Tank_Master> id have to see what was said about the "trick" used

05:10 <CoderForLife> there was the speed thing

05:10 <KathrynM> yeah

05:10 <CoderForLife> but that was a long-term, just-not-as-fast-as-it-should-be thing

05:12 <CoderForLife> the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle applied to 4-year olds?

05:12 <KathrynM> something like that

05:12 <KathrynM> Now I'm watching SouthPark

05:12 <CoderForLife> from the ridculous to the sublime

05:13 <KathrynM> uh huh

05:15 <KathrynM> no thanks

05:15 <CoderForLife> those poor folks in Dayton that need to reset their digital receivers...

09:25 <KathrynM> Your evil twin?

09:26 *** frost has joined #boinc

09:32 <Ageless> at least I got the graphics to work in 6.1.12

09:32 <Ageless> but they only work from BSG, not from AV ...

09:32 * KathrynM wonders if she should try compiling the 6.1 client

09:33 * KathrynM wonders if she should try compiling the 5.10 manager :)

09:33 <Ageless> plus it's a nice bug where you go into the projects tab, select a project and find all the buttons grayed out. reclicking the project fixes that ;)

09:33 * KathrynM wonders what the appropriate sacrifices are for the successful compiling of the manager

09:33 <KathrynM> definitely nice bug

09:34 <Ageless> as long as you don't ask me to zip up the source code and email it to you...

09:34 <Ageless> like JM7 did

09:34 <KathrynM> lol

09:35 <KathrynM> nah, I've managed to figure out how to do a svn checkout from the command line :)

09:35 <Ageless> he's behind a corporate firewall so he couldn't do that

13:55 <Tank_Master> not fun

13:56 <e-30> yea

13:57 <e-30> so how are things with you

13:57 <Tank_Master> not to bad

13:58 <e-30> thats ok

13:58 <Tank_Master> I have gotten enough $$ to probably buy 2 more quads

13:58 <e-30> wow i am still trying to get one running

13:59 <KathrynM> and you're sending them to Korea?

13:59 <Tank_Master> heh

13:59 <e-30> naa

13:59 <Tank_Master> isnt there some trade thing that blocks that?

13:59 <Tank_Master> ;)

14:00 <Romulus> then realizes that IM/chat/IRC is not that bored.

14:00 <KathrynM> only to N. Korea :)

14:00 <KathrynM> ok, who crashed isaac?

14:00 <KathrynM> can anyone get to the site?

14:01 <e-30> give me the address

14:02 <KathrynM>

14:02 <e-30> its down

14:04 <Didactylos> That's odd.

14:04 <Didactylos> boinc. fails on the last hop, but other sites fail just a couple of hops out.

14:05 <Didactylos> Maybe it's just a coincidence.

14:05 <e-30> lol

14:08 <yoyo[RKN]> rehi

14:08 <Tank_Master> hey

14:08 <yoyo[RKN]> was it LHC what crashed boinc.exe?

14:08 <KathrynM> yup

14:09 <yoyo[RKN]> I got some complaints about it in the skype helpline and in our forum

14:09 <yoyo[RKN]> and why boinc crashed?

14:10 <KathrynM> pov thinks it's something with curl

14:10 <yoyo[RKN]> I read that since LHC switched on the scheduler the crash doesn't happen any more?

14:11 <KathrynM> yup

14:11 *** nickuwo has quit IRC

14:11 <yoyo[RKN]> does it mean if any project to which I'm connected switches of its scheduler my boinc crashes :(

14:12 <KathrynM> dunno

14:12 <Didactylos> No. Pretty sure not, anyway.

14:12 <yoyo[RKN]> and why LHC causes the crash

14:13 <yoyo[RKN]> do they have some strange http server?

14:21 <Tank_Master> I do believe LCH uses a non standard server software

14:21 <KathrynM> nah, just a very old version

14:21 <e-30> true they have never update it

16:37 <mweltin> PovAddict, my stats are not updating.  I tried to use that CleanAndUpdateStats script that someone posted on the boinc list.

16:37 <PovAddict> WTF

16:37 <PovAddict> my nickname in Pirates@Home is "Knuckles"!!??

16:37 <PovAddict> since when is that there o_o

16:37 <mweltin> its a shell scirpt that simply remvoes stats_* dirs

16:38 <mweltin> and then runs udpate_stats with the normal switches.

16:38 <mweltin> but now even if I run update_stats my stats dir is not being created

16:38 <PovAddict> if update_stats is failing, removing the old stats_* dirs won't make any difference

16:38 <Tank_Master> its cus your a knuckel head

16:38 <mweltin> well its not failing either.

16:38 <mweltin> I just ran update_stats in gdb, and everythign seems to check out

16:38 <PovAddict> if it's not succeeding at doing its job, it's failing :)

16:39 <mweltin> just not htm/stats dir is created.

16:39 <mweltin> yes true

16:40 <DerMeister> Is update_stats supposed to create any logfiles like other parts of the server do?

16:40 <PovAddict> yes

16:40 <mweltin> yes it does and the log file shows no sign  of error.

16:40 <mweltin> I'm trying to dig through the source now.

16:40 * PovAddict has a headache

16:41 <mweltin> boinc will do that, I still haven't solved the work generator problem either.

16:43 <PovIpod> hey CFL

16:43 <sethy> also 'lo CoderForLife

16:43 <CoderForLife> cable modem seems to be behaving

16:43 <Tank_Master> good

16:43 <PovIpod> sethy: not blood

16:43 <CoderForLife> hello Tank_Master sethy PovIpod

16:43 <sethy> BOGIES?!

16:43 <Tank_Master> puss

16:44 <mweltin> hey cfl

16:44 <CoderForLife> hey mweltin

16:44 <PovIpod> ...

16:44 <sethy> that green stuff when you get a cold?

16:45 <mweltin> Celelaptop, you ever write windows software that gets data from a scanner?

16:45 <CoderForLife> does anyone know of an exploit whereby a packet can be sent to a cable modem to cause it to recycle it's power?

16:45 <PovIpod> seems to be just allergic, not a cold

16:45 <Tank_Master> the cable company can do that

16:45 <mweltin> cfl no I don't

16:45 <CoderForLife> can someone else do that?

16:45 <Tank_Master> they do it when they believe the moden has been hacked

16:45 <Romulus> Rytis: everything in the heap?

16:45 <PovIpod> CFL: well cablemodem firmware is just software

16:46 <CoderForLife> I'm wondering if my problem last night was a kind of DOS attack

16:46 <Tank_Master> probably, but I haevnt heard of that happening

16:46 <sethy> problem?

16:46 <Romulus> I guess problem is me :D, sethy

16:46 <PovIpod> software is buggy until proven otherwise

16:46 * sethy looks at microsoft

16:46 * Tank_Master looks at apple

16:46 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

16:47 * sethy looks at ubuntu

16:47 * PovIpod looks at Romulus

16:47 * Tank_Master looks at BSD

16:47 * sethy looks at the wall

16:47 * Tank_Master stays away from Romulus

16:47 * Tank_Master looks at berkeley

16:47 <CoderForLife> I'm thinking that maybe the fact that my MOTOROLA modem had rebooted 269 times in one day when I was talking to 3rd level support was an induced problem, rather than a power supply problem

16:47 <PovIpod> could be

16:48 <Tank_Master> a PS problem generally takes it offline, not just reboots it

16:48 <Tank_Master> signal quality can also be an issue

16:48 <sethy> what problem is this?

16:48 <CoderForLife> cable TV seemed unaffected...

16:49 <CoderForLife> see above sethy - I had connectivity problems starting at about 5:00pm until I went to bed at 9:00

16:49 <PovIpod> reboot due to low signal q? unlikely

16:49 <CoderForLife> agreed

16:49 <Tank_Master> if it looses sync

16:49 <CoderForLife> the power light on the modem went out

16:49 <Tank_Master> it might reboot

16:50 <CoderForLife> over and over the modem rebooted

16:50 <sethy> maybe the cable is just worn out

16:50 <CoderForLife> and over and over and over and over...

16:50 <PovIpod> cfl: is the firmware upgradeable?

16:50 * CoderForLife splodes

16:50 <Tank_Master> *might be* a thing of the past

16:51 <CoderForLife> by the cable company - 3rd level support looked at the problem and said that re-provisioning was not needed

16:51 <CoderForLife> they can flash firmwae from their side

16:51 <CoderForLife> firmware*

16:51 <Tank_Master> yep

16:51 <CoderForLife> a tech is coming Friday to replace the modem

16:52 <PovIpod> that must need auth

16:52 <xcamel> re-hi

16:52 <CoderForLife> fortunately, it's working ATM, so Friday is OK

16:52 <CoderForLife> hello JAy

16:52 <CoderForLife> er Jay

16:52 <xcamel> modem working now?

16:52 * CoderForLife lifts a heavy finger from the shift key

16:52 <CoderForLife> yes, working as mysteriously as it started failing

16:53 <CoderForLife> made be wonder if I was getting attacked

16:53 <CoderForLife> a modem remote reboot command

16:53 <PovIpod> FL once had similar trouble

16:54 <CoderForLife> must have already been April Fools' Day in China

16:54 <PovIpod> malformed packet causing infinite loop

16:54 <PovIpod> infinite loop = high Cpu usage = overheat

16:54 <mweltin> anyone know if the udpate_stats.C what creates the html/stats dir?

16:54 <PovIpod> on router

16:54 <CoderForLife> I have DoS protection turned on in my firewall, but of course this would be a direct modem attack

16:55 <CoderForLife> protecting against SYN flood doesn't do you any good if someone can just reboot your modem

16:56 <PovIpod> well this attack needed just a packet or two to cause lockup

16:56 <mweltin> Looking at the code update_stats seems to only effect that database, makes no mention of exporting stats to a file.

16:56 <PovIpod> wait!!

16:56 <PovIpod> update stats doesn't do that!

16:57 <PovIpod> export is db_dump

16:57 <mweltin> ahhh

16:57 <mweltin> prefetct

16:57 <CoderForLife> sure PovIpod - "Hello. I'm your root.  Reboot."

16:57 <PovIpod> im in yr modem

16:58 <CoderForLife> all your packets are belong to us

17:47 <sethy> i'm too young to donate

17:47 <PovAddict> "sell" implies "black market" anyway :)

17:48 <PovAddict> but seriously

17:48 <PovAddict> it would be better for Spit to have somebody help on-site...

17:48 <PovAddict> there is only so much you can do helping over the phone, right?

17:48 <xcamel> basically..

17:48 <sethy> ok here is the thing...

17:48 <sethy> there is a 150 mile gap between her and me

18:49 <KathrynM> well, someone here said you're a knucklehead

18:49 <KathrynM> so it fits :)

18:49 <PovAddict> <_<

18:50 <Ageless> Nick, you didn't need change anything.

18:51 <Ageless> we didn't change anything in the names, posts etc... it's just a filter that's running to a redirect page. So each time you type pirates, it posts as primates

18:51 <xcamel> IP kill >>

18:52 <Ageless> it doesn't work everywhere... and we did forget a thing or two. :(

18:52 <PovAddict> even my nickname was affected? I'm sure it *was* changed

18:52 <Ageless> but still nice work, no, for a month's work? ;)

18:52 <PovAddict> account settings did show it as Knuckles

18:52 <Ageless> no nicknames are really changed. When we switch back to the Pirates site, your old nickname is back... if you didn't change it.
