00:20 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

00:20 <zombie67> updates

00:21 <cactaur> Well, the only thing scarier than updating windows is not updating windows.

00:22 <zombie67> *Snort*

00:22 <zombie67> trvth!

00:22 <zombie67> so, I have 6 security/manditory, and one optional.

00:23 <zombie67> any news about bandess?

00:23 <zombie67> badness

00:27 <zombie67> aaaaand there it is....restart required

00:31 <Tank_Master> funny

00:31 <Tank_Master> I only had 3 updats, all office, no reboot

00:32 <zombie67> this was xp32

00:32 <Tank_Master> ahh

00:32 <Tank_Master> xp in is inferior to server 2008

00:32 <zombie67> we're all going stright to win 7 anyway

00:32 <Tank_Master> lol

00:33 <zombie67> Vista was just a trial

00:33 <Tank_Master> I just downloaded the alpha build, but havent gotten a chance to install it yet

00:33 <zombie67> Yep, 6+1 for Xp63 too

00:33 <zombie67> XP64

00:33 <Tank_Master> though I hear its not much different yet from vista

00:34 <zombie67> cels will make this tricky

00:34 <zombie67> ufluids too

00:34 *** MTughan has joined #boinc

00:34 <zombie67> MT!

00:34 <MTughan> Yep, it be me...

00:34 <MTughan> My dad took my laptop until June... >_>

00:35 <zombie67> OUCHH!!

00:35 <zombie67> you FU with school?

00:35 <MTughan> 40% in Philosophy.

00:35 <zombie67> But that's relative!

00:35 <zombie67> ;)

00:35 <MTughan> Because all the marks in the course are about learning about a philosopher, not actually doing philosophy.

00:36 <zombie67> so how are you here now?

00:36 <MTughan> I have two computers, remember?

00:36 <zombie67> heh.  so how is that a punishment?

00:36 <MTughan> Although while I was bored in Math class today, I sketched out something what I'd like my BOINC Manager to look like.

00:36 *** d00m1001 has quit IRC

00:36 <MTughan> I'm not supposed to be on IRC right now.

00:37 <zombie67> ah

00:37 *** BiteAbleKat has quit IRC

00:37 <zombie67> there is nothing going on here now.

00:37 <zombie67> not worth risking.

00:37 *** d00m1001 has joined #boinc

00:37 <MTughan> Pov's gone to bed at a respectable time? :P

00:38 <zombie67> guess so.  he's been quiet for a while nw

00:38 <zombie67> now

00:38 <MTughan> 35 minutes, Freenode says.

00:39 <MTughan> &seen PovAddict

00:39 <Romulus> MTughan: PovAddict was last seen in #boinc 2 hours, 22 minutes, and 30 seconds ago: <PovAddict> since you're such a usenetter, what do you think of a post that gets edited all the time? that *is* abusing it as a wiki page...

00:39 <MTughan> So not here.

00:39 * zombie67 no lie

00:39 <Romulus> That's what I have a few questions

00:40 <MTughan> Rommie's useful, but the Markov alone sometimes makes me want to strangle him...

00:40 <zombie67> MT, did you see charlie's post about the new 6.x

00:40 <Tank_Master> agreed

00:40 <MTughan> Yeah, but I haven't downloaded it.

00:40 <MTughan> I don't want to lose my E@H tasks.

00:40 <zombie67> no, I mean about all the issues

00:42 <zombie67> can't upload depspid

00:42 <Tank_Master> haha

00:42 <zombie67> you too?

00:42 <Tank_Master> yep

00:43 <Tank_Master> got .23% uploaded

00:43 <zombie67> maybe he is modifying the sever for >1

00:43 <Tank_Master> shouldnt need to take the server down for that

00:44 <zombie67> dammit, stop Fing with my happy thoughts

00:44 <Tank_Master> yeah, PovAddict

00:44 <zombie67> Now that I got all that extra BWidth

00:44 <MTughan> What I have drawn up in GIMP from what I did today:

00:44 <Romulus> <> (at

00:45 <MTughan> I think it'll look better once I get something like it in an actual GUI.

00:46 <MTughan> I just did ABC and LHC to show where projects would go.

00:46 <zombie67> don't forget about being able select all and update/abort/whateverr

00:46 <MTughan> You'll be able to do multiple select, don't worry.

00:46 <zombie67> And being able to select all-but-this-one

00:47 <MTughan> That'll have to be a menu item, but yes.

00:47 <zombie67> riteous

00:47 <MTughan> Cmd-Opt-A probably.

00:47 <MTughan> Cmd-A for Select All, Cmd-Opt-A for Select Others.

00:48 <MTughan> BTW, those buttons at the top are a toolbar. I

00:48 <MTughan> ..'m thinking I'll move them though, and do stuff like attach project and suspend up there.

00:51 <zombie67> And 6+1+1 for AMD boxes

00:51 <zombie67> windows sucks the massive tool

00:51 <wdsmia> asks zombie67 to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.

00:52 <zombie67> brb

00:54 <MTughan> There, that background for the window is better. It was 60% alpha white, now it's 70% alpha gray.

00:54 <Tank_Master> lol

00:54 <MTughan> BTW, I didn't make the Get Info icon either. I stole it from the Finder.

00:54 <zombie67> I like buttons

00:55 <Tank_Master> you didnt steal it

00:55 <Tank_Master> you implimented it

00:55 <zombie67> A "update all" button is awesome

00:55 <zombie67> An

00:55 <MTughan> You'll be able to do Select All, Update.

00:56 <zombie67> a button for all of that would be better

00:56 <Tank_Master> it was nice whan the standard BOINc manager has an update all function

00:56 <Tank_Master> had*

00:56 <MTughan> Also, another thing I thought of is have the progress bars for tasks also show the progress for uploads and downloads.

00:56 <MTughan> In addition to task progress. Reduces some clutter.

00:57 <MTughan> Wow, I should be going to bed... 12:57AM.

00:57 <zombie67> hah!  the AMD update was released from them in aug 2007.  just now hitting msft update

00:57 <MTughan> lol, nice...

00:58 <MTughan> Anyway, I'm off.

03:45 <CoderForLife> very bad

03:46 <CoderForLife> it's not just the sucking sound of the money, it's the primal whining that goes with it

03:58 * efc would like to flush some money

04:09 <CoderForLife> it's very easy

04:10 <CoderForLife> you barely have to put your mind to it

04:10 <CoderForLife> almost happends naturally

04:13 <CoderForLife> my real estate is slipping down the hill

04:13 <CoderForLife> I was blaming Mother Nature

05:01 <CoderForLife> you like?

05:02 <KathrynM> I've finially dried out from my walk in the rain earlier.

05:04 <CoderForLife> is that a good or bad thing?

05:05 <KathrynM> just a thing.

05:06 <KathrynM> I bought birthday presents and a bunch of postcards.

05:06 <CoderForLife> I see this is going to be one of "those days" - can't pin you down

05:10 <KathrynM> oh puke.

05:10 <CoderForLife> or would that be "n'yuck"?

05:10 <KathrynM> they've got a news story on bout the korean astronaut.

05:11 <KathrynM> they're playing "hero" in the background.

05:11 <CoderForLife> there's one?  and just one?

05:11 <KathrynM> the one that went to the space station

05:11 <KathrynM> actually it was the backup.  the first one broke training security or something

05:11 * CoderForLife acts ignorant of current events

05:12 <KathrynM> it's on the news right now.  too bad the news is in Korean

11:22 <PovAddict> the queue got *empty*, and it's not requesting work from any project, even when I force update

11:22 <hawmps> suspend the other projects...

11:22 <PovAddict> which other projects?

11:22 <hawmps> all of them

11:23 <PovAddict> I'm attached to a dozen, forced update on all, and the client always "requested 0 seconds of work"

11:23 <PovAddict> even though it was idle

11:23 <hawmps> except the one you want work for...

11:23 <hawmps> blame that on the stupid debt system..

12:55 <jackygrahamez> hi folks

13:19 <hawmps> 'lo Jack

13:20 <CoderForLife> an LHC-related link from this morning:

13:20 <Romulus> <> (at

13:20 <hawmps> er lojackĀ® even

13:21 <PovAddict> lol

13:21 <hawmps> ;-)

13:21 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

13:21 <hawmps> posted the long version from the yesterday

13:22 <CoderForLife> ah, sorry - didn't see

13:38 <jackygrahamez> I have the answer...42

13:39 <Romulus> you hope a lot off connections at the dates

13:39 <Tank_Master> I though it was 47

13:46 <jackygrahamez> What do you think is a good monthly price to store 100 GBs on a file server without any bandwidth restrictions?

13:47 <Tank_Master> $0.00

13:47 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez: what are the files for?

13:47 <Tank_Master> porn?

13:47 <jackygrahamez> I like that price, can I choose Tank as my service provider?

13:47 <Tank_Master> lol

13:47 <jackygrahamez> I got molecules I want to mirror

13:47 <PovAddict> how often will you need to access them?

13:48 <Tank_Master> just as long as I get to copy anything I deam worth to copy

13:48 <jackygrahamez> and those molecules don't have cloths so yes porn

13:48 <PovAddict> do you need HTTP access?

13:48 <Tank_Master> sweet

13:48 <PovAddict> do you need reliability? (for example, final results of BOINC processing doesn't really need reliable storage; if you happen to lose a file, you can always send the work to process again)

13:50 <jackygrahamez> These files should most be static, occasionally updated with rsync, I need reliability so the workunits can use them

13:50 <PovAddict> anyway, what do you think of this pricing? $0.15 per GB-Month of storage, $0.18 per GB of transfer

13:51 <PovAddict>

13:51 <jackygrahamez> I have to figure out how many GB are transfered in a month

13:51 <Romulus> ...still in our mortgage

13:53 <Tank_Master> $132 for the first month if I upload 400GB? (and by upload, I mean tranfer it once, and not touch it again)

13:54 <PovAddict> no, $100

13:55 <PovAddict> uploading is data going "in" from their standpoint

13:55 <Tank_Master> oh, 10 in

13:55 <Tank_Master> you didnt say that

13:55 <PovAddict> &calc (.10 + .15) * 400

13:55 <jackygrahamez> I see

13:55 <PovAddict> oh wait, the bot has me b&

13:55 <jackygrahamez> Well I think its out of my price range for now

13:55 <DerMeister> In europe it would be more... $112

13:56 <Tank_Master> & math calc (.10 + .15) * 400

13:56 <Romulus> Tank_Master: 100

13:56 <Tank_Master> not bad

13:56 <jackygrahamez> I'll have to wait until I get grants

13:56 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez: you just want to mirror WU input files?

13:56 <jackygrahamez> essentially

13:57 <PovAddict> are you having bandwidth problems with your current server already?

13:58 <jackygrahamez> Currently our WU generator downloads from two separate public repositories for molecular data. There are a couple of issues doing this

13:58 <jackygrahamez> It works though

13:58 <jackygrahamez> It would be nice to just have a mirror, but I can do my development without that

13:59 <jackygrahamez> I suppose I could setup a computer at home that hosts the files, but that's going to slow things down

13:59 <jackygrahamez> Another option is to reference the file to download directly from the repository to the client

14:00 <jackygrahamez> If the frequency of workunit generation got too high, it might become a DoS

18:11 *** Ageless has joined #boinc

18:13 <Ageless> pfff, got away with disaster.

18:13 <Ageless> I just returned to my computer, to find that Windows had popped up two warnings that I had unplugged my optical drives without shutting down the computer.

18:13 <Ageless> both drives were nowhere to be found either, I couldn't eject them either.

18:14 <Ageless> I tried a reboot... but that only got me to a black screen, no restarting computer at all.

18:14 *** DerMeister has quit IRC

18:15 <Ageless> so I shut down, checked the cables and found that one of the red power cables had worked itself loose and was dangling precariously close to my case... It was the one coming directly from the PSU.

18:16 <Ageless> so although I now have to buy a new PSU anyway (as 3 plugs are unusable due to this), at least I don't have to also buy a new motherboard and whatever else had this cable made contact with the case! :)

18:39 <Ageless> lol, it's probably better to be south of the server than to be east of it

18:39 <Ageless> too many people on line between it and me

18:39 * CoderForLife makes a head-long dive for the couch

18:40 <CoderForLife> cya folks

18:41 <Ageless> anyway, I'll offer my help in transfering stuff over from one place to the next.

18:41 <Ageless> but only after I got a new PSU.

18:46 <Romulus> Yeah, not so good at help

18:46 <KathrynM> tell me something I don

18:46 <KathrynM> I don't know rommie

19:19 <Soul_keeper> anyone happen to have researched what % of watts drawn by a computer ultimately gets converted to heat energy ?

19:20 <Soul_keeper> can you prove it's not over 90% ?

19:20 <PovAddict> where would the other % go?

19:20 <PovAddict> if 90% goes to heat, what does the other 10% get converted to?

19:20 <KathrynM> credits?

19:20 <Romulus> Rumor has it credits are a pain. Have you heard anymore about boinc funding, KathrynM

19:21 <PovAddict> lol KathrynM

19:21 * KathrynM smacks rommie in the harddrive

19:21 <PovAddict> harddrives don't like being smacked :o

19:21 <KathrynM> exactly

19:23 <Ageless> night all.

19:23 *** Ageless has quit IRC

19:23 <xcamel> laterz..

19:23 <PovAddict> nigh-- too late

19:23 <Soul_keeper> PovAddict, i'm thinking radiation, mechanical energy, etc.

19:24 <PovAddict> radiation should be pretty low

19:24 <xcamel> sexual tension..

19:24 <Soul_keeper> and even then most radiation and mechanical energy can generate heat thru such things as friction

19:24 <PovAddict> mechanical energy (like spinning a fan) would eventually be heat due to friction anyway

19:24 <Soul_keeper> so what maybe 95% or more ultimately becomes heat ?

19:24 <Soul_keeper> is there a flaw in my assumption here ?

19:25 <Soul_keeper> i'm doing calculations for a fridge system

19:25 <PovAddict> the problem isn't really how much electricity gets converted into heat, but how much you can compute per electricity and heat unit :)

19:25 <Soul_keeper> ohhh yeah

19:26 <Soul_keeper> i just need to remove the heat (however much it may be) so i can increase the computing power via a magic thing called "overclocking"

19:26 <PovAddict> heh

19:26 <PovAddict> I wish heat could be easily and efficiently transported

19:27 <Soul_keeper> heat can be recycled back into electricity, they are apparently doing this on cars now

19:27 <PovAddict> to have a whole crunching farm concentrating its generated heat into an oven, for example :D

19:27 <Soul_keeper> it's all just flowing energy ultimately

19:28 <Soul_keeper> we have a long ways to go with tech advancements

19:28 <PovAddict> if you could convert all heat back to whatever usable power, you'd have a perpetual motion machine right there ;)

19:28 <Soul_keeper> :)

19:28 <xcamel> entropy kicks in...

19:28 <Soul_keeper> well i'm sure there will be inefficiency like radiation, magnetism, and other crap we havn't discovered yet

19:29 <PovAddict> of course

19:29 <Soul_keeper> but even 50% efficiciency would be great

19:29 <PovAddict> but I heard a car converts 90% of fuel power into heat, and 10% into motion (probably not that bad on modern cars though)

19:29 <Soul_keeper> anyways i gotta go

19:29 <Soul_keeper> yeah i heard the same thing

19:30 <Soul_keeper> crazy stuff, ttyl

19:30 <PovAddict> bye

19:30 <Soul_keeper> also only like 3% of the fuel energy is used to move the occupants of the average car ...

19:41 <corky> what binary do i need to execute?

19:41 <PovAddict> BOINC Manager (the GUI) just shows you what the CLI client is doing :)

19:41 <PovAddict> well, what distro, and how did you install BOINC?

19:41 <corky> well, debian etch, PS: its my "Server" which isn't doing anything

19:42 <corky> and i just downed the .sh and bashed it

19:42 <corky> lol, strange word, bash, :P, "Bashed it" :P

19:42 <PovAddict> run ./boinc --daemon

19:44 <PovAddict> it's compiled against older libraries, so it should work on your machine

19:44 <corky> is it an older version?

19:44 <PovAddict> no, it's the latest version, linked to older system libraries :)

20:14 <corky> well, nvm that

20:16 <corky> well, i can't seem to lookup my account data... :S

20:16 <PovAddict> still says can't connect to localhost?

20:16 <corky> project servers maybe down... is seti@home down?

20:16 <corky> PovAddict, nope, i helped that problem PovAddict ;-)

20:17 <PovAddict> SETI seems to Work For Me

20:17 <corky> well, PovAddict, i'll just return on this subject tomorrow,

20:17 <corky> i need to catch some sleep,

20:18 <corky> typical for linux users, to catch only sleep when the REALLY need it :P, gn all!

20:50 <MTughan_> Figures... Silverlight from MS uses .NET. Typical MS.

20:50 <Soul_keeper> :)

20:50 <MTughan_> Although Vista SP1 was released, it seems.

20:53 <xcamel> 'lo Mike

20:53 <Didactylos> MTughan_: what did you expect? Java?

20:53 <xcamel> update on xp sp3 rct2 also

20:54 <MTughan_> Didactylos: Something besides .NET, even a new language.

20:55 <Didactylos> Better this way, I believe.

20:55 <xcamel> lol M$.not

20:55 <Didactylos> Who needs yet another mediocre language?

20:55 <Didactylos> With .NET, they have support for C++, C# VB and even stuff like Fortran.

20:56 <Didactylos> Did you know there's a Fortran.NET compiler?

20:56 <Didactylos> Scary.... :-)

20:59 <MTughan_> You can do .NET in C++?

20:59 <MTughan_> And what's wrong with the standard library?

21:01 <xcamel> Nice >>

21:01 <Romulus> Title: APOD: 2008 April 9 - A Large Magellanic Cloud Deep Field (at

21:04 <MTughan_> Nice...

21:05 <MTughan_> But, I have a biography to do on Karl Marx, so I'll have to stop talking for a while. If someone really needs me, I'll be on the comp, so I can be flashed.

21:05 <xcamel> ugn.. that's a nasty topic..

21:05 <PovAddict> Didactylos: did you know there is a lolcode.NET compiler?

21:06 <Didactylos> The author hangs out in #SPORKS.

21:06 <Didactylos> He's a Google employee :-)

21:06 <PovAddict> brainf* exists too

21:07 <PovAddict> omg wtf

21:07 <PovAddict> while looking for the .net version

21:07 <PovAddict> I stumbled upon an Apache module

21:07 <PovAddict> mod_bf

21:29 <PovAddict> wtf

21:29 *** flight16 has left #boinc

21:31 <xcamel> not sure I want to know what the purpose of that is

21:33 <xcamel> though I have a feeling I know already..

21:43 <MTughan_> Looks dangerous... (I pop in from time to time)

21:44 <xcamel> understatement..

21:44 <MTughan_> Oh, we found out the chemical structure of TNT today. :D

21:45 <xcamel> next up is C-4

21:45 <PovAddict> now go make some

21:45 <xcamel> or nitroglycerine

21:45 <MTughan_> 2,4,6-trinitro methyl benzene

21:45 <MTughan_> TNT comes from Trinitrotoluene.

21:46 <xcamel> you beat me to the right answer..

21:46 <MTughan_> The toluene being the other name for methyl-benzene.

21:46 <PovAddict> go make some I say

21:46 <PovAddict> xD

21:46 <xcamel> 2,4,6,1-big-boom

21:46 <MTughan_> I know its chemical structure, not its synthesis.

21:46 <MTughan_> lol, Jay.

21:47 <xcamel> tnt is easy

21:47 <MTughan_> Also, Pov: I drew up a rough sketch of what I have for the BOINC Manager in my mind. It was a little messy though, so I'm making a really bad version in GIMP.

21:47 <MTughan_> is what I have so far.

21:47 <Romulus> <> (at

21:48 <PovAddict> I think I saw your ugly sketch :)

21:52 <xcamel> lol

21:53 <MTughan_> Frankly, my ugly sketch almost looks better. It's B&W. ;)

21:53 <xcamel> some simple changes would make bm a bit easier to work with..

21:53 <MTughan_> Except B doesn't stand for black. :P

21:54 <xcamel> like reporting work from the tasks tab..

21:55 <MTughan_> What I'm going to do is basically combine the Projects and Tasks tabs.

21:55 <xcamel> it's a start

21:55 <MTughan_> The selected item in what I have will show the tasks for that project. You'll also be able to select multiple projects.

21:55 *** PovAddic1 has joined #boinc

21:56 <MTughan_> Select the Projects drop down itself, and all tasks show.

21:56 *** PovAddict has quit IRC

21:57 <xcamel> laters... only 30 hours or so to go...

21:57 <xcamel> the hasta la vista...

22:10 *** efc has joined #boinc

22:11 <nickuwo> so I'm using try_fopen(path, file, "r"); to open a file... does it just put the file in"file" or does it return a pointer or somthing?

22:12 <PovAddict> try_fopen? what is that from?

22:12 <nickuwo> umm the BOINC framework

22:13 <nickuwo>

22:13 <Romulus> <> (at

22:13 <PovAddict> ah backend

22:13 <PovAddict> yes it put the file in 'file'...

22:13 <nickuwo> sweet

22:14 <PovAddict> FILE* fp; int ret = try_fopen("something", fp, "r");

22:15 *** Chloeee has quit IRC

22:19 <nickuwo> ok... now If I want to read a line from that file, I might do something like fscanf(file, "%s\n", line);   hmmm, or will that just get me a word?

22:20 <PovAddict> scanf is teh evil

22:20 <nickuwo> mmmmm... evil

22:20 <nickuwo> getline()?

22:20 <PovAddict> I never used it, but I read getline is the preferred way

22:20 <nickuwo> rockMyFace()?

22:21 <nickuwo> ok

22:21 <nickuwo> why is scanf evil?

22:21 <PovAddict> there you go

22:22 <nickuwo> omg pointers

22:22 <Romulus> ah, seti webserver resurected

22:23 <PovAddict> lol

22:33 <nickuwo> gawd, I feel like I'm reinventing the wheel

22:34 <PovAddict> you may be

22:35 <nickuwo> there should be laws against teaching someone java before C++

22:36 <PovAddict>

22:42 <nickuwo> well, since I don't want to pick up any bad habits, what's the easy way to check if two strings are equal to each other in C++.  a == b? a.equals(b)? I have to do with pointers?

22:42 <PovAddict> depends

22:42 <PovAddict> are they actually C++ strings (as in the std::string class) or are they arrays of characters (char*)?

22:42 <nickuwo> right now I have an array of char

22:43 <PovAddict>

22:43 <nickuwo> genius!

22:45 <nickuwo> I love asking you questions that I'

22:45 <nickuwo> m too lazy to find the answer to :)

22:45 <nickuwo> did you notice?

22:47 <nickuwo> at least I'm not programming in .NET...

22:54 <Soul_keeper> indeed

23:05 <nickuwo> how does one go about building the sample_assimilator? it doesn't have a main function...

23:05 <nickuwo> use assimilator.c as well?

23:06 * KathrynM is back (gone 02:53:00)

23:06 <nickuwo> o i c

23:11 <nickuwo> hmm, how do I "link" assimilator.C with my assimilator with assimilate_handler() in it?

23:11 <nickuwo> hmm, I think I figured it out

23:12 <nickuwo> just #include it?

23:12 <PovAddict> no

23:13 <nickuwo> no?

23:13 <Romulus> Somebody said no is I supposed to, nickuwo

23:14 <PovAddict> hold on, there's a cockroach around here

23:14 <nickuwo> that didn't even make sense rommie

23:14 <KathrynM> when does rommie make sense?

23:14 <PovAddict> first it was walking on the wall

23:15 <nickuwo> squish it?

23:15 <PovAddict> going behind the bookshelf and back out

23:15 <KathrynM> ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

23:15 <PovAddict> by then I was 4 meters away already :)

23:15 <PovAddict> then...

23:15 <PovAddict> it fell off the wall

23:15 <nickuwo> haha

23:15 <PovAddict> onto the computer desk

23:15 <PovAddict> walked a bit over the f*cking KEYBOARD

23:15 <KathrynM> ughhhhhh

23:16 <nickuwo> it wants to help you program

23:16 <PovAddict> I made it fall off the desk but it ran away

23:16 <PovAddict> then came back... walking from behind the desk and freaking me out

23:17 <nickuwo> hehe

23:17 <KathrynM> I remember the first texas roach I saw.

23:17 <KathrynM> It was freaking huge

23:17 <KathrynM> I've seen smaller rats

23:17 <PovAddict> omg

23:17 <KathrynM> well, not quite that big.

23:17 <KathrynM> but it was ginormous

23:17 <PovAddict> ok so now it fell off the desk again

23:18 <KathrynM> it scurried out of the music closet at church and I screamed

23:18 <PovAddict> if it's still where I last saw it

23:18 <PovAddict> it's in a 3cm space between desk and wall

23:18 <PovAddict> I can't even check for sure

23:18 <PovAddict> I should try moving the desk... making those 3cm smaller ;)

23:19 <KathrynM> when we all blow each other up with nuclear weapons the cockroaches will survive and take over the earth

23:20 <PovAddict> can't move the desk

23:20 <PovAddict> too heavy

23:21 <KathrynM> shouldn't you be heading to bed anyway?

23:22 <PovAddict> but but

23:22 <KathrynM> lol

23:22 <PovAddict> I'll be eaten on my sleep

23:22 <KathrynM> (in my sleep)

23:22 <KathrynM> :-)

23:23 <PovAddict> whateverthefuck

23:23 <wdsmia> asks PovAddict to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.

23:23 <KathrynM> damn prepositions

23:23 <MTughan_> Heh, sucker.

23:23 <nickuwo> god I love that script

23:23 <PovAddict> MTughan_: who is? <.<

23:23 <MTughan_> With Doug's script. Not the bug.

23:23 *** desti has joined #boinc

23:24 <MTughan_> The bug, that'd just be hugely annoying.

23:24 *** MTughan_ is now known as MTughan

23:24 <PovAddict> I guess I'll be cleaning tomorrow... sigh

23:35 <MTughan> Where can I pick up the name of an application from the support files?

23:36 <MTughan> I want to get the name of the ABC@Home application, but I don't want to get any ABC tasks.

23:36 <PovAddict> as soon as I stop watching out for the Creepy Bastard, it will crawl on the desk again

23:37 <PovAddict> or crawl inside the shoe I was going to use to splat it

23:37 <KathrynM>

23:37 <MTughan> Found it... client_state.xml

23:37 <Romulus> Title: Applications (at

23:37 <KathrynM> but it's not very helpful

23:38 <MTughan> KathrynM: The name in BOINC.

23:38 <KathrynM> The name in the manager is ABC Finder

23:38 <MTughan> abc-finder actually.

23:38 <KathrynM> not on mine :)

23:38 <MTughan> Forgot about the user friendly name... You're right.

23:38 *** BiteAbleKat has quit IRC

23:38 <KathrynM> heh

23:40 <PovAddict> creepy bastard!

23:40 <KathrynM> crawled up your leg?

23:40 <nickuwo> hmm, now I need to convert a string into a char array...?

23:40 <PovAddict> I dunno where it came from, but it fell on its back

23:41 *** desti has quit IRC

23:41 <KathrynM> ewwwwwww

23:41 <KathrynM> yuck!!!!!!!!!!

23:41 <PovAddict> it's on a corner of the room trying to flip

23:41 <KathrynM> I'm going back to work with the rug rats

23:41 <KathrynM> IT's safer there

23:41 * KathrynM is away: I may still exist in an alternate reality...

23:41 <PovAddict> and looks too disgusting, making it hard for me to splat it with the shoe

23:41 <PovAddict> ugh

23:42 <KathrynM> splat it already

23:42 <PovAddict> nickuwo:

23:42 <PovAddict> KathrynM: it's moving its legs and it's horrible, even more when its legs are like so upwards

23:43 <nickuwo> holy crap, eclipse has intellisense

23:43 <PovAddict> nickuwo: intellisense is a marketing word Visual Studio uses, for a feature that has existed for years in all IDEs I used

23:43 <PovAddict> aka "code completion"

23:44 <nickuwo> either way, it's sweet

23:44 <PovAddict> even vim can have it if you configure it correctly and build the ctags database manually

23:45 <PovAddict> if I had a camera around here, I'd take pictures to freak y'all out

23:45 <PovAddict> xD

23:48 <PovAddict> yuuuck

23:48 <PovAddict> *splat*
