IRC logs of #boinc for Monday, 2008-04-07

00:06 *** Soul_keeper has quit IRC

00:09 *** tamar has quit IRC

00:16 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

00:26 <zombie67> people often don't understand that email != outlook/thunderbeird/whatever

00:26 <PovAddict> huh

00:26 <zombie67> even after you explain it to them

00:26 <zombie67> over and over again

00:27 <PovAddict> actually, most people think email is accessible from a browser

00:27 <PovAddict> "why would you use another program to access your email?!"

00:27 <zombie67> no, people think yahoo = email

00:27 <PovAddict> exactly

00:27 <zombie67> no, not the same

00:27 <zombie67> at all

00:27 <PovAddict> yahoo = web mail

00:28 <zombie67> they think yahoo IS email

00:28 <PovAddict> well those are beyond saving

00:28 <zombie67> they don't understand that yahoo is just a web interface to email

00:28 * PovAddict looks around for Saenger

00:28 <zombie67> that is my mom

00:28 <zombie67> that is my dad

00:29 <zombie67> they tell me "my yahoo isn't working"

00:29 <PovAddict> Saenger complained about "why would i download a separate program to access forums?" when I was talking about my NNTP stuff

00:30 <zombie67> that's like saying, why do i need a modem?  I can just listen to the noises

00:31 *** efc has joined #boinc

00:31 <zombie67> Why do we need SETI@home?  We can just look at the sky

00:31 <PovAddict> well there is a difference

00:31 <PovAddict> without a modem you can't read your yahoo

00:31 <zombie67> a NNTP client helps us manage all that data, filter it, make it meaningful

00:32 <PovAddict> but without an NNTP client you can still use the browser

00:32 <PovAddict> it sucks, but I can read it, so if it works, why should I get another program

00:32 <wdsmia> asks PovAddict to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

00:33 <zombie67> a raw message feed is like looking at the sky.  Using nntp and a good client makes it meaning ful

00:33 <PovAddict> I need a better nntp client

00:33 <zombie67> we all do

00:33 <Didactylos> Usenet is an underused concept.

00:34 <zombie67> I grew up on usenet, and love it

00:34 <zombie67> people are scared of unmoderated forums

00:34 <PovAddict> Didactylos: I wrote my own NNTP server while attempting to get BOINC forums on it, but it's now yet another unfinished and dropped project

00:34 <zombie67> I feed moderation is stifling.  *I* will be my *OWN* moderator.  Thanks.

00:35 *** tamar is now known as BiteAbleKat

00:35 <zombie67> all I need is a client with decent filtering

00:35 *** BiteAbleKat has quit IRC

00:36 <Didactylos> Don't you wish all net fora had a killfile?

00:36 *** tamar is now known as BiteAbleKat

00:36 <zombie67> amen!

00:37 <zombie67> "GEnie is quiet and polite, the equivalent of chatting in a nice hotel lobby, with cups of tea and palm fronds. CompuServe is more like a convention, with lots of conversations going on at once.  Usenet reminds me of a University Student Union Bar ('Look, yah, I mean what Keirkegaard was saying was, oh gross Sharon, no-one wants to see your tattoo, well gosh, if you're buying I'll have another pint')." -- Neil Gaiman

00:38 <zombie67> my fave:  "Usenet is not a right."  "Usenet is a right, a left, a jab, and a sharp uppercut to the jaw.  The postman hits!  You have new mail. " -- Ed Vielmetti & Chip Salzenberg

00:39 <zombie67> pov:  I think 6.1.x may have a bug

00:39 <PovAddict> zombie67: yawn

00:39 <PovAddict> got any news?

00:39 <zombie67> lattice will have work again very soon

00:39 <zombie67> Kimi R. came in 2nd

00:42 <zombie67> Pov, whatever happened to that big rendering project?

00:42 <PovAddict> last revision looks like I started changing the structure and never filled in the implementation... I wonder if it works at all

00:42 <zombie67> just finished watching beowulf

00:43 <PovAddict> zombie67: I couldn't manage to compile a povray that doesn't screw up the image, and didn't try too much

00:43 <zombie67> do all medieval tales have to be so dreary?

00:43 <zombie67> ok

00:43 <PovAddict> lol http://xkcd.com/407/

00:43 <Romulus> Title: xkcd - A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language - By Randall Munroe (at xkcd.com)

00:43 <zombie67> well, if you want to try again, lemme know

00:43 <Didactylos> I had fun with PovRay back in the day.

00:44 <Didactylos> PovAddict: do you have art somewhere?

00:44 <zombie67> reminds me of the futurama episode "How Heremes got his Grove Back."

00:44 <PovAddict> under most definitions of "art", no I don't

00:45 <zombie67> nothing but flowers

00:48 <PovAddict> like... modifying somebody else's scene, and I put images there to give the link...

00:48 <zombie67> what is the url to the povray stuff?

00:48 <PovAddict> which povray stuff?

00:48 <zombie67> the one that leo talked about

00:48 <zombie67> bunches of examples

00:53 <Didactylos> The lego?

00:54 <Romulus> Title: El Lutzo's LGEO POV-Ray Library (at www.el-lutzo.de)

00:54 <PovAddict> but there is some lego stuff there which is my own modeling too

00:56 <Didactylos> I've lost the source for most of my work.

00:56 <Didactylos> Devastating.

00:57 <Didactylos> This was... what? Over 12 years ago.

00:57 <zombie67> The FB powers that be say that AI must be Black-Listed due to possible "commercial use".  I never say that as anything but GOOD for BOINC.

00:58 <Didactylos> FB?

00:59 <zombie67> Formula BOINC:  http://www.myboinc.com/FormulaBoinc/

00:59 <Romulus> Title: Formula Boinc (at www.myboinc.com)

01:00 <Didactylos> PovAddict: only a few of them benefit from raytracing.

01:00 <zombie67> it is the best way (IMO) to do cross-project stats.

01:00 <Didactylos> I did a pen once with some awesome refraction.

01:00 <zombie67> you don't compare credits.  you compare rank.

01:00 <PovAddict> only a few of what?

01:00 <Didactylos> Those images.

01:01 <PovAddict> not like povray has a way to choose rendering algorithms :)

01:01 <Didactylos> Like the jewels, and that cool radiosity image.

01:02 <Didactylos> No?

01:02 <Romulus> hmm... No is I supposed to, Didactylos

01:02 <Didactylos> I don't know if you're serious.

01:02 <PovAddict> povray *is* a raytracer and that's all it can do

01:02 <Didactylos> Max lets you do selective raytracing.

01:02 *** Wabbit67 has joined #boinc

01:02 <Romulus> have made it work if you wanted to scream here

01:03 <Didactylos> I miss PovRay, though.

01:03 <Didactylos> You've got me feeling all nostalgic.

01:03 <zombie67> I got 4 more tasks from BRaTS two days ago.

01:04 <Didactylos> Oh YES!

01:04 <Didactylos> I found it! I knew I never deleted anything in the last - ever.

01:04 <PovAddict> heh

01:04 <Didactylos> All archived and hidden away.

01:05 <Didactylos> Mostly .TGA

01:05 <PovAddict> no sources?

01:05 <zombie67> hah!  I'm 13th (RAC) at BURP.  Now I will start trying harder.

01:05 <Didactylos> Sources, everything.

01:06 <zombie67> Nice.  No bit rot?

01:07 <PovAddict> there may be

01:07 <PovAddict> once he tries rendering one and he has problems with his pre-3.1 syntax, the bit rot will show :)

01:08 <Tank_Master> lol

01:08 <zombie67> TM!

01:08 <Tank_Master> yo

01:08 <zombie67> you're back!?

01:08 <Tank_Master> got back yesterday

01:09 <zombie67> straight up and back?  No adventure?

01:09 <Didactylos> PovAddict: but that's the wonderful thing - still have the version I wrote for.

01:09 <Tank_Master> gave a comp to my g-ma for her birthday, that was enough adventure

01:09 <Didactylos> Did the format change much?

01:10 <PovAddict> Didactylos: not really, and current versions very possibly will render any old code provided the correct #version directive

01:10 <PovAddict> syntax compatibility is kept very well

01:10 <zombie67> boinc installed as service....right?

01:10 <Tank_Master> yep

01:10 <zombie67> heh

01:10 <Tank_Master> with climate

01:10 <zombie67> attached via BAM?

01:10 <Tank_Master> (she has dial-up)

01:10 <Tank_Master> no

01:10 <Tank_Master> no point

01:10 <PovAddict> Didactylos: but yeah, in any case, you can download old versions from povray ftp

01:11 * zombie67 is confused

01:11 <Tank_Master> only on a few hrs a day, and on dial up

01:11 <Tank_Master> I just hope climate will finish within a year

01:11 <zombie67> so how do you control it?

01:11 <Tank_Master> I dont

01:11 <zombie67> ah!

01:11 <zombie67> you mean CPDN!

01:11 <Tank_Master> ya

01:11 <Tank_Master> those WUs will run for months

01:11 <zombie67> i thought you meant it was cool temp there.

01:12 <Tank_Master> I should be back there by then to ensure that are updated

01:13 <Didactylos> Some of these are dated 1994.

01:16 <PovAddict> and I bet they render ridiculously fast on your current machine :)

08:04 <Agiofws> hello

08:04 <Agiofws> can i  ask  something ...

08:05 <KathrynM_> sure

08:05 *** KathrynM_ is now known as KathrynM

08:05 <Agiofws> i am using  boinc

08:05 <Agiofws> client

08:05 <Agiofws> to connect  to burp.boinc ...

08:07 <Agiofws> ATM  i have uploaded my  "data" to burp and its getting processed .. if i stop the  boinc client   will my data prossesing  be stoped or stalled ?

08:07 <KathrynM> If you look at the status of the work unit, is it ready to report or running?

08:09 <hawmps> once they have the WU, you don't have to worry about it any more

08:09 <hawmps> the next time you connect, you'll get the credits due

08:09 <Agiofws> WU

08:10 <Agiofws> status of the work unit, is it ready to report or running?  ?

08:10 <Agiofws> where is that ?

08:10 <Romulus> or what drives many of the ATA crowd

08:10 <KathrynM> on the "tasks" tab

08:11 <desti> do you crunch burp or do you upload work for crunching?

08:11 <Agiofws> KathrynM,  on  the burp  site ?

08:11 <Agiofws> or the boinc site ?

08:12 <KathrynM> In your BOINC manager

08:12 <Agiofws> ok

08:12 <Agiofws> well there is working on other peoples ... work

08:13 <Agiofws> yes

08:13 <Agiofws> i have 4 tasks

08:13 <KathrynM> Oh, you mean you uploaded a session to be rendered?

08:14 <Agiofws> yes

08:14 <Agiofws> if i stop the client will work on  farm be stopped ?

08:14 <KathrynM> nope

08:15 <KathrynM> Once it's on the server, it's out of your hands.

08:15 *** wolog has quit IRC

08:15 *** wolog has joined #boinc

08:16 <Agiofws> so i can stop contributing ?

08:16 <Agiofws> or what are my  benefits of contributing ?

08:17 <KathrynM> You can stop, but the more computers working on your render, the faster it will get done.

08:18 <Agiofws> do i get something like credits ?  get a better priority ? or something ?

08:19 <KathrynM> You get BOINC credits.

08:19 <Agiofws> which translate to ?

08:19 <desti> carma

08:20 <KathrynM> bragging rights :)

08:20 <CoderForLife> Linden Dollars

08:21 <CoderForLife> j/k

08:21 <CoderForLife> no one has established the exchange rate, plus no one will surrender their credits

08:22 <KathrynM> their mine!  Mine!  MINE!!!!!!!!!!!

08:22 <KathrynM> they're even

08:35 <Agiofws> bragging rights :)  ?

10:46 <Agiofws> ok

10:46 <PovAddict> wow 70% done

10:47 <Agiofws> are you rendering ?

10:47 <PovAddict> nope, computer is busy with 5 other projects :)

10:48 <PovAddict> wow, 12-hour WCG workunit

10:59 <hawmps> PoV - wasn't someone working on making the tray icon changing color when there was completed work ready to send?

10:59 <Romulus> btw, you said you liked linux

11:16 <PovAddict> hmm I don't think so

11:17 <PovAddict> but... I'm not sure if apps can even change their tray icon on Linux

11:20 <desti> linux has no trays :-/

11:20 <PovAddict> exactly

11:20 <PovAddict> desktop environments provide tray icons at user request, but I don't think apps can fiddle with it

11:22 <DerMeister> There's also a rather strange bug on windows... ticket #586...

11:22 <PovAddict> &bticket 586

11:22 <Romulus> http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/ticket/586

11:22 <PovAddict> ah yeah

11:22 <DerMeister> Just looked into it and I have no idea what's wrong.

11:23 <DerMeister> SetIcon is called, abviously with a valid icon as the application *shows* the correct icon.

11:23 <PovAddict> does any other wxWidgets app do that?

11:23 <DerMeister> Nothing different compared to another wxWidgets application I wrote... But no such bug in my application

11:24 <DerMeister> I even removed the code for the tray icon because I feared that fiddling around with it might confuse windows. But same result...

11:24 <PovAddict> what if the icon doesn't have a 32x32 version?

11:24 <DerMeister> Hmm... is the standard boinc icon only 16x16 pixels?

11:25 <PovAddict> I dunno

11:25 * PovAddict gets resource hacker

11:26 <DerMeister> That might be an explanation

11:26 <DerMeister> It is indeed only 16x16 pixels whereas the icon of my application is 32x32 pixels

11:26 <PovAddict> nope

11:26 <PovAddict> 16x16, 32x32, 48x48

11:27 <DerMeister> the one used for the application icon is boinc.xpm... and that is a 16x16 pixel icon

11:27 <hawmps> kde does have a tray

11:27 <hawmps> but it's called a panel

11:27 <PovAddict> DerMeister: ohh, not boinc.ico with the multiple sizes? that explains it

11:28 <DerMeister> no, for compatibilities sake wxWidgets uses .xpm...

11:28 <PovAddict> so the Windows-format icon is only used for... the start menu?

11:28 <DerMeister> I just compiling the manager with a 32x32 bit icon (although not a boinc icon) to see if that fixes the bug

11:28 <hawmps> KSysTrayCmd

11:28 <DerMeister> I think so

11:29 <PovAddict> hrm something here is leaking resources

11:30 <PovAddict> "Gates sees next Windows 'sometime' in next year" (That should help Vista sales)

11:32 <DerMeister> hehe

11:32 *** Aruzp has joined #boinc

11:33 <DerMeister> OK, providing a 32x32 pixels icon really fixes this bug

11:33 <PovAddict> note you must use *both* sizes

11:34 <PovAddict> one for alt tab, the other for taskbar

11:34 <DerMeister> Are you sure? My application only has a 32x32 icon and it still works...

11:34 <Romulus> Then 5.10.45 for all.

11:34 <PovAddict> does it have an ugly-resized taskbar icon? :)

11:35 *** Celelaptop_ has joined #boinc

11:35 <DerMeister> Well... it's small... hard to tell whether it would look better if it's only 16x16 pixels ;)

11:36 <DerMeister> Anyway - I see no way to set both icons...

11:36 <PovAddict> what source/line?

11:36 <DerMeister> At least not using wxWidgets

11:36 <DerMeister> AdvancedFrage.cpp:224

11:37 <PovAddict> frame? :)

11:37 <DerMeister> Ah, there is SetIcons... that one should help

11:37 <PovAddict> nope, the idea is seeing how wxIcon is initialized

11:37 <DerMeister> oh, yes, should be AdvancedFrame.cpp:244, sorry ;)

11:38 <PovAddict> if wxIcon's are like Windows HICON resources, they can probably have multiple sizes

11:39 <PovAddict> so the question is, what part of the code creates a new CAdvancedFrame?

11:40 <DerMeister> that should be in BOINCGUIApp.cpp:661

11:40 <DerMeister> but it uses the skin manager to get the icon

11:40 <desti> who is still using pixel graphics icons instead of vector graphics icons?

11:40 <DerMeister> desti: almost everyone not running vista ;)

11:40 <PovAddict> desti: almost everyone...? I don't think wx can do it anyway

11:43 <DerMeister> PovAddict: SkinManager.cp:991 uses the xpm icon and passes it as default icon to an CSkinIcon instance... And this one uses it in SkinManager.cpp:289 to create the wxIcon...

11:43 <DerMeister> m_icoIcon = wxIcon(m_ppDefaultIcon);

11:43 <Romulus> and to make an iso

11:44 *** chup has quit IRC

11:44 <DerMeister> I think just using a 32x32 pixels icon should solve the bug. Hoever, if still both versions should be used things might get a little tricky

11:45 <DerMeister> wxWidgets can handle this but the SkinManager not.

11:45 *** chup has joined #boinc

11:46 <PovAddict> wxWidgets can handle multiple icon sizes in the way we need it?

11:46 <DerMeister> yes

11:46 <DerMeister> http://docs.wxwidgets.org/2.6/wx_wxtoplevelwindow.html#wxtoplevelwindowseticons

11:46 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5kse8l> (at docs.wxwidgets.org)

11:46 <DerMeister> just use this function instead of SetIcon

11:47 <PovAddict> ahh IconBundle, a different class...

11:47 <DerMeister> I never tried it but the documentation says it works

11:47 <DerMeister> Yes, and that's why it gets tricky with the SkinManager

11:48 <desti> http://wxmathplot.sourceforge.net/

11:48 <Romulus> Title: wxMathPlot: wxMathPlot (at wxmathplot.sourceforge.net)

11:48 <PovAddict> pretty mess

11:48 <PovAddict> well, at least now we know how to solve it

11:49 <DerMeister> I think just providing a 32x32 pixel icon should be enough. Not perfect but easy to "implement" and better than the current situation

13:13 <PovAddict> DerMeister: I wonder if that would cause problems...

13:13 <Tank_Master> BOINC IS a problem

13:13 <DerMeister> It worked for me on XP... I can't test other windows versions, though

13:14 <PovAddict> line 224, icon bundle gets created; line 227, it gets passed to SetIcons... wouldn't it cause problems when the method ends and the bundle gets destructed?

13:14 <PovAddict> does SetIcons keep a pointer to it...?

13:15 <DerMeister> Well, didn't see any problem. The documentation isn't clear at this point. It says that SetIcon creates a copy of the icon but it doesn't say anything like that for SetIcons

13:21 <yoyo[RKN]> hi

13:24 <DerMeister> Hm... Obviously SetIcon just calles SetIcons

13:26 <DerMeister> PovAddict: I just looked through the wx source code. SetIcons creates a copy of the icons bundle passed to that function.

13:26 <DerMeister> Therefore there should be no problem.

18:59 <CoderForLife> one of them about 10 feet from the crest of the hill, one of "my" trees

19:00 <CoderForLife> it had been severely bent over by weather, and it's roots were right on the "fault line"

21:30 <Soul_keeper> "AMD plans to axe off 1,600 employees before the close of September -- this would represent a 10% reduction in AMD's current workforce of 16,000 employees."

21:30 <Soul_keeper> Last year, Santa Clara-based Intel cut about 10,500 jobs, or about 10 percent of its work force, in a move to save about $3 billion annually.

21:36 <xcamel> damn, that it cool..

23:03 <KathrynM> PovAddict, try changing the order in grub.conf

23:03 <KathrynM> I think the default is the first listed

23:03 <PovAddict> I looked at the config for Windows XP

23:03 <PovAddict> it has a "savedefault" line on it

23:03 <PovAddict> which apparently is supposed to make it the default if you select it

23:04 <KathrynM> I have  nothing like that.

23:04 <Romulus> drags CoderForLife back by the way:

23:04 <PovAddict> essentially making the default "the one you chose last time"

23:04 <PovAddict> ...but it doesn't seem to be working...

23:34 <ework> I'm seeing a very strange error on my linux x86 system

23:34 <PovAddict> I'll bbl, sorry

23:34 <ework> from what I've read most projects support x86 linux

23:34 <PovAddict> Didactylos: take note of his error for the docs ;-)

23:35 <ework> I'm trying to attach to World Community grid project

23:35 *** hawmps has quit IRC

23:35 <ework> the errors of interest are

23:35 <ework> Mon 07 Apr 2008 08:16:12 PM PDT|World Community Grid|[error] App version has unsupported platform i686-pc-linux-gnu

23:35 <ework> Mon 07 Apr 2008 08:16:12 PM PDT|World Community Grid|[error] No app version for result: i686-pc-linux-gnu 519

23:36 <Didactylos> I know this one.

23:36 <Didactylos> Let me think.

23:37 <ework> based on that it appears to me that i686-pc-linux-gnu is not supported, correct?

23:37 <ework> but it should be based on what I've seen in forums

23:37 <Didactylos> Yes, it's supported.

23:38 <ework> maybe I forgot some setting, I'm an experienced linux user but a newbie to Boinc

23:39 <ework> a google search and some forum searches came up with no matches for "unsupported platform i686-pc-linux-gnu"

23:39 <ework> so now I'm here

23:39 <KathrynM> that's how mine reports...

23:39 <KathrynM> 2008-04-08 04:15:34 [---] Starting BOINC client version 5.10.21 for i686-pc-linux-gnu

23:39 <KathrynM> Didactylos, want me to try to attach right quick?

23:39 <Didactylos> Do you use a 64bit Linux?

23:39 <ework> Mon 07 Apr 2008 08:08:51 PM PDT||Starting BOINC client version 5.10.45 for i386-pc-linux-gnu

23:39 <ework> thats mine from messages line 1

23:39 <KathrynM> that's why

23:39 <KathrynM> you're reporting i386 instead of i686

23:40 <KathrynM> How did you install BOINC?

23:40 <ework> weird, its a core 2 duo

23:40 <ework> from the fedora package

23:40 <KathrynM> that's a bug

23:40 <KathrynM> hold on

23:40 <ework> using yum

23:40 <ework> is that changeable from a config file or does it require a recompile?

23:41 <Didactylos> ework: You can use the altplatform mechanism to get work.

23:41 <Didactylos> See this post: http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/printpost?post=154839

23:41 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/69zmds> (at www.worldcommunitygrid.org)

23:41 <ework> ok

23:41 <ework> let me try that and get back to you

23:41 <KathrynM> no, it's easier than that

23:41 <KathrynM> hold one while i restart ff

23:42 <Didactylos> Easier than what?

23:42 <KathrynM> there's an updated package

23:42 <KathrynM> that reports itself correctly

23:42 <Didactylos> Ah. A *fixed* bug.

23:42 <KathrynM> I was in touch with Milos and Eric about it

23:42 <Didactylos> My favourite kind.

23:42 <Romulus> almost feeling in my feet in

23:43 <ework> so wait should I fetch and updated package

23:43 <Didactylos> Yes.

23:43 <KathrynM> http://pastebin.ca/976407

23:43 <Romulus> Title: general pastebin - Someone - post number 976407 (at pastebin.ca)

23:43 <ework> from fedora rawhide or somewhere else?

23:43 <KathrynM> gotta go back to w*#$

23:43 <KathrynM> laterz

23:45 <ework> ok i see a new version for devel but I need some other dependencies first libcrypto and libssl

23:47 <Didactylos> Either wait for KathrynM to get back, or just use the cc_config workaround.

23:47 <ework> ok well thats not going to work, the newer packages uses a new version of openssl and that causes other problems

23:51 <Didactylos> cc_config will get you going fastest.

23:51 <ework> yah trying that now

23:51 <ework> I'll just have to watch for updates to boinc

23:52 <ework> well the first line is still the same

23:53 <PovAddict> yes that's expected

23:53 <ework> ok

23:53 <PovAddict> your BOINC used to ask for "a i386-pc-linux-gnu app"

23:53 <PovAddict> now it will ask for "a i386-pc-linux-gnu app, or alternatively, i686-pc-linux-gnu"

23:55 <ework> ah

23:55 <ework> makes sense

23:55 <ework> it seems to be downloading some i686 specific files

23:57 <ework> ok the cpu seems to be going now

23:57 <PovAddict> \o/

23:58 <ework> but it doesn't seem to be using both cpus when idle

23:58 <ework> it jumps around a lot and from cpu to cpu but at least its going now

23:58 <Romulus> actually rommie, it's 0827
