12:57 <Romulus> w@#%ing on Good Friday?

12:58 <PovAddict> did you start it with --daemon?

12:58 <corky> yes PovAddict

12:58 <PovAddict> ./boinc_cmd --quit

12:58 <corky> PovAddict, btw, how can i report my results?

12:58 <PovAddict> they report themselves

13:00 <corky> oh lol, i just checked the results "ready to report: yes" it said, lol thats why i asked

13:00 <PovAddict> it will report when it feels like it ;)

13:01 <corky> ZOMFG, you guys coded software that "Feels" :O

13:01 <corky> :P

13:01 <PovAddict> if it reports work as soon as they finish, it causes more server load; it's better to contact the project to get new work and report a dozen finished results all at once

13:01 <corky> ok :)

19:02 <zombie67> I wish.  almost 80 deg here.  Pretty soon I'll have to move my machines indoors for cooling

19:03 <Ageless> dry ice

19:03 <zombie67> no kidding

19:04 <Ageless> you got them outside then?

19:04 <Rookie_69> I've already shut down most boxes because apt was warming up... and onlt barely above freezing up here.

19:04 <zombie67> in the garage

19:04 <zombie67> on the west side of the house.  So it gets all the sun in the afternoon

19:04 <Ageless> central heating / air conditioning?

19:05 <zombie67> yeah

19:05 <zombie67> One option is to just open the door to the garage....

19:05 <Ageless> besides, it's good... it keeps the race on for those trying to catch you on credits. ;)

19:05 <zombie67> let the AC from the house go in

19:06 <Ageless> or bury them all in a basement where you can regulate the temperature 24/7/52

19:07 <zombie67> no basements in CA

19:07 <Ageless> dig one

19:07 <zombie67> very odd

19:07 <zombie67> not possible.  On a slab with tension cables running through it.  earthquake and on the side of a hill

19:08 <Ageless> make it water tight and earthquake proof of course.

19:09 <Ageless> so if it starts to rumble, you either slide or move or both.

19:09 <zombie67> yeah, but the slab won't break.

19:10 <PovAddict> sheesh

19:10 * PovAddict is close to giving up and going back to softwar

19:10 <PovAddict> e

19:10 <Ageless> ah, explain that to the officers. Mobile home.

19:11 <PovAddict> I have this electronic thingy with thermometer and clock and alarm and stuff... which dropped, and some stuff got broke

19:12 <PovAddict> I opened it up, took away the broken pieces of plastic that were in the way, put the screen back in place, now I can't close it back and I can't figure out why

19:12 <KathrynM> hammer?\

19:12 <zombie67> bigger

19:13 *** jackygrahamez has joined #boinc

19:13 <Ageless> there's a black hole in the way

19:14 <Ageless> but Erik, can't you dig into that hill then, make a special cool room there?

19:14 *** jackygrahamez_ has joined #boinc

19:15 <Ageless> you'd think once was enough, Jack.

19:16 *** jackygrahamez__ has joined #boinc

19:16 <Ageless> um

19:16 *** jackygrahamez___ has joined #boinc

19:17 <KathrynM> poor jack, he seems to be growing a tail

19:18 <KathrynM> or having a problem with splitting personalities

19:18 <Ageless> he's trying to get it right

19:18 <PovAddict> got it

19:18 <Ageless> drill?

19:18 <PovAddict> and didnt forget ant part outside either

19:19 <PovAddict> i better hurry put the screws before it jumps back open

19:19 <zombie67> bbl

19:19 *** zombie67 has left #boinc

19:20 <Ageless> electrical tape

19:20 <PovAddict> I think I *will* need tape

19:20 *** MacG has joined #boinc

19:21 <PovAddict> two out of four screw holes broken

19:21 <Ageless> super glue?

19:21 <PovAddict> although... it doesn't even turn on, so why should I worry about closing it completely...

19:21 <PovAddict> lasts 2 seconds on

19:25 <PovAddict> turned on

19:25 <Ageless> perhaps the batteries, or a loose wire. rattle and shake it.

19:26 <PovAddict> but some parts of the screen don't show up (the minute digits on the clock)

19:26 <PovAddict> if I hold the thing closed, they show... sort of...

19:26 <PovAddict> the two broken screw holes are the two on top

19:27 <Ageless> contact points not making contact then

19:27 <Romulus> think the default if you set the max#CPU to "1"

19:27 <PovAddict> well, when pressing it, the screen shows up completely but also makes those strange colors any black LCD screen does when you press it too much

19:27 <Ageless> right. listen to Rommie

19:27 <PovAddict> like a calculator

19:27 *** chupa has quit IRC

19:28 *** chupa has joined #boinc

19:28 <Ageless> use a clamp?

19:28 <PovAddict> the screen contact points did seem like a fragile mechanism...

19:28 <KathrynM> hammer?

19:28 <Ageless> or if it's thin enough, a couple of paperclips.

19:28 * KathrynM waves goodbye

19:28 <KathrynM> I'm off to costco

19:28 <KathrynM> laterz

19:28 <PovAddict> it's like a long thin piece of rubber with black lines that I suppose conduct electricity

19:28 * KathrynM is away: I may still exist in an alternate reality...

19:41 <PovAddict> and rubberbands *trying* to hold it together

19:47 <Rookie_69> ... threatening...

19:51 <PovAddict> wtf I just looked and it's turned on

20:00 <Ageless> oooh, nice ergonomic look those rubber bands

20:01 <Ageless> all models should come with them.

20:01 <PovAddict> lol

20:01 *** bia_ has left #boinc

20:01 <Ageless> drill a hole through the op, put a bolt & nut through

20:02 <Ageless> *top

20:17 *** chup has joined #boinc

20:18 *** chupa has quit IRC

20:18 <Ageless> is there a slpit channel atm?

20:18 <Ageless> split

20:19 <PovAddict> I don't think so

20:19 <Ageless> all the times Jack entered he saw no one

20:19 <PovAddict> but we saw him, so he wasn't in an alternate universe

20:20 <PovAddict> aka "the other side of the netsplit"

20:20 <Ageless> he's trying again in a bit

20:20 <Ageless> the last time he tried, he saw no one and we didn't see him. So that's really alone in the dark

20:21 <PovAddict> maybe he somehow got in a different server?

20:21 <Ageless> I'm telling him again to do it all by hand.

20:22 <nickuwo_> Pov, can you explain to me the linking thing? I've been reading the man pages and -c just seems to compile the files and not link. Can't I compile and link in the same step?

20:22 *** nickuwo_ is now known as nickuwo

20:23 <PovAddict> nickuwo: yes you can, but it's not really a good idea

20:23 <nickuwo> no?

20:23 <Romulus> I guess no is I supposed to, nickuwo

20:24 <PovAddict> try g++ -o my_assimilator my_assimilator.C assimilator.C libsched.a

20:24 <nickuwo> I don't need to compile assimilator.C?

20:24 <PovAddict> that line will compile both, and link them

20:25 <nickuwo> interesting

20:25 <PovAddict> but I'm not sure if it really works

20:29 <Ageless> hmm, lots of projects down for maintenance, or no work for my platform, or no work at all.

20:29 <Romulus> just what was the one y'all called too short :)

20:31 <Ageless> let's see which projects I'll allow this time. QMC and Rosetta perhaps.

20:36 <Ageless> good thing Jack didn't try to post that email here, he'd be kicked off for flooding the channel.

20:36 <Rookie_69> If I want another beer, I have to go down to the van and get one out og the fridge.

20:37 <Ageless> solution: stop drinking.

20:37 <wdsmia> wtf!

20:38 <Ageless> solution 2: get a dog/maid/fridge next to the puter

20:38 <wdsmia> better

20:38 <Rookie_69> What kind of solution is that?

20:38 <Ageless> the first one? a healthy one.

20:39 <Rookie_69> Solution 2 sounds better.

20:39 <Ageless> although... it'll make you sit solely behind the keyboard, doing nothing, watching flies pass.

20:39 * wdsmia just needs the maid

20:39 <Rookie_69> van calls me...

20:39 <Soul_keeper>

20:39 <Romulus> <> (at

20:39 <Soul_keeper> my boat

20:40 <Ageless> slow

20:41 <Soul_keeper> probably because you aren't the only one loading it :)

20:41 <Rookie_69> Lol.

20:41 <Ageless> I quit after seeing the garbage cans

20:41 <Ageless> giving you bandwidth back

20:42 <nickuwo> that thing is awful purdy

20:42 <Ageless> I guess Cosmo lives on the same server... about as fast.

20:43 <Rookie_69> A coat of javex would do some good maybe.

20:47 <CoderForLife> off to watch 2 hours of BSG

21:01 <efc> Come on down, to Cluckin' Bell!

21:01 <Rookie_69> ooM!

21:06 <Soul_keeper> buncha girly men in here

21:06 <Soul_keeper> always telling me to clean my room, or my pictures are messy and hurting their eyes

21:07 <efc> If you enjoy it, the chicken didn't die in vain

21:08 <Rookie_69> My room is clean... All the shit piled in the corner is dirty.

21:08 <wdsmia> asks Rookie_69 to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.

21:08 <Rookie_69> ... stuff...

21:11 * wdsmia stuffs Rookie_69 in the dirty corner

21:11 <Rookie_69> ... or laundry is mAYBE A BETTER TERM...

21:12 <Rookie_69> Stupid caps lock...

21:12 *** MTughan has joined #boinc

21:13 <MTughan> Forgot to restart XChat...

21:13 <wdsmia> *lo Mikey

21:14 <MTughan> 'lo Doug

21:14 <MTughan> Did you remove "sucks" from your script yet?

21:14 <wdsmia> asks MTughan to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.

21:15 <MTughan> Apparently not...

21:15 <Romulus> nope.. nothing in my crobtab to run for 100 bucks a pop

21:15 <wdsmia> nope but I did remove farther

21:15 * Rookie_69 slaps wdsmia around a bit with a large trout a bit for MTughan.

21:15 <MTughan> For example... What if you say that a vacuum literally sucks?

21:15 <wdsmia> asks MTughan to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.

21:15 <MTughan> And thanks Rookie.

21:15 <efc> Hmm, whats that song with the lyrics "Its like a jungle out there" about 20 years old..

21:16 <wdsmia> well I guess your just going to learn to use sux

21:16 <Rookie_69> @MTugan... wdsmia likes being called Dougie...

21:16 *** ChanServ sets mode: +o wdsmia

21:16 <MTughan> Ooh, Dougie... Me likey.

21:16 *** Rookie_69 was kicked by wdsmia (I'm only doing this because I care)

21:16 <PovAddict> pwn

21:17 *** wdsmia sets mode: -o wdsmia

21:17 <efc> Ah, Grandmaster Flash

21:18 <MTughan> Rookie must not have auto-rejoin on...

21:18 <PovAddict> which is a good idea

21:18 <PovAddict> auto-rejoining after a kick just encourages the op to do a ban instead

21:18 <MTughan> So Doug doesn't keep bouncing him out?

21:18 <wdsmia> @MTugan it would be a good idea to forget what Rookie said

21:18 <efc> Sort of like a paddleball

21:19 *** Rookie_69 has joined #boinc

21:19 <MTughan> Rookie_69: No, you cannot start a revolt against the chanops.

21:19 <Rookie_69> OSI Can...

21:19 <Rookie_69> I just cah't finish it.

21:20 <MTughan> Fair enough.

21:20 <Rookie_69> ... can't...

21:20 <MTughan> <wdsmia> @MTugan it would be a good idea to forget what Rookie said

21:20 <Rookie_69> Kanuckistan Forever!!!

21:21 <MTughan> My guess is he's not leaping with joy over "Dougie", no matter how cute it sounds. :P

21:21 <Rookie_69> Lol.

21:21 <wdsmia> thats 2

21:21 <efc> Go on #electronics and announce you are a Canuck, there's an interesting reaction

21:21 <MTughan> I'm not a Canuck.

21:22 <MTughan> I don't play for Vancouver's NHL team.

21:22 <wdsmia> he just plays with himself

21:22 <Rookie_69> There's a whole counyry up here...

21:22 <wdsmia> j/k ;)

21:23 <Rookie_69> I apparently play with myself instead of concentrating on typing...

21:23 <Rookie_69> ... or something...

21:23 <wdsmia> too much info there Rookie_69

21:24 <PovAddict> ditto

21:24 <MTughan> Seconded.

21:25 <Rookie_69> I don't think that I'll mention that you got me on camera, WD...

21:25 <Rookie_69> Lol.

21:26 <Rookie_69> Sometimes Gregor is Doug's bitch, I think.

21:26 *** ChanServ sets mode: +o wdsmia

21:26 *** Rookie_69 was kicked by wdsmia (My foot itches... ahh... much better...)

21:30 <wdsmia> call me Dougie again and find out

21:30 <Rookie_69> Lol.

21:47 <MTughan> wdsmia: Well, he must value his life, no matter how little. He didn't call you "Dougie" again.

21:47 <MTughan> Or he just leads a really boring life and this is the most excitement he can get. :P

21:48 <Rookie_69> That sounds like me :-(

22:58 <PovAddict> C++0x sounds great

22:58 <MTughan> Huh?

22:58 <PovAddict>

23:00 <MTughan> Long article... I'll have to go over it later. Any highlights from you?

23:00 <efc> &weather 30625

23:00 <Romulus> efc: Temperature: 75°F / 24°C | Humidity: 65% | Pressure: 29.82in / 1010hPa (Steady) | Conditions: Clear | Wind Direction: South | Wind Speed: 6mph / 9km/h ; Rest of Tonight - Chance of showers and thunderstorms in the evening...then showers and thunderstorms likely after midnight. Lows in the lower 60s. Southwest winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 60 percent.; Saturday - Mostly cloudy with a chance of showers (1 more message)

23:00 <efc> I'm getting to play with Vista some..

23:00 <PovAddict> see Generalized constant expressions

23:00 <PovAddict> efc: poor you?

23:00 <efc> It looks nice, at least

23:02 <MTughan> What, no bluescreens yet?

23:02 <Romulus> high 90 low 80 chance of tree

23:02 <efc> Nah, although I can't get a LAN going (which is all I need)

23:02 <PovAddict> is the "cancel or allow" screen blue?

23:02 <efc> Its MultiMedia colors

23:05 <MTughan> PovAddict: You mean UAC?

23:05 <MTughan> It just greys the screen and then shows the dialog.

23:06 <PovAddict> could have blued the screen ;)

23:06 <MTughan> Heh.

23:06 <MTughan> There's probably someone who's hacked it to do that. xD

23:07 <PovAddict> I know somebody wrote something that looks like Mac Exposé

23:07 <PovAddict> with the DWM APIs

23:07 <MTughan> Now, generalized constant expressions can be done in C++0x, but why not just use a #define to define a constant value?

23:08 <MTughan> Or are #define's generally looked on as bad, like goto's?

23:08 <PovAddict> #defines aren't type safe

23:09 <PovAddict> you could argue you can do: const int whatever = 3+5*2;

23:09 <MTughan> Because it's a direct substitution?

23:09 <PovAddict> but constexpr functions can very well have variables and stuff

23:09 <efc> Ooo, more C++ features I won't understand

23:09 <PovAddict> lol

23:10 <MTughan> Heh, I still have plenty of those efc.

23:10 <MTughan> I know Obj-C though.

23:10 <PovAddict> I'm levelling up

23:11 <MTughan> Meh. C++ is good enough for me right now.

23:11 <MTughan> Probably because I don't use it that much. :P

23:11 <PovAddict> concepts will *really* help with those over-long template error messages

23:12 <MTughan> I think the most I've done with C++ is integrating it with Obj-C.

23:12 <PovAddict> lol

23:12 <efc> Been using Ada.. Another endlessly complex language

23:12 <MTughan> Obj-C = C + Smalltalk

23:12 <PovAddict> does Obj-C (or Cocoa) have decent socket APIs?

23:12 <MTughan> I think there is a socket class. Let me check.

23:13 <PovAddict> some day maybe you could write your own code to talk to BOINC

23:13 <PovAddict> instead of bridging to C++ and using the bundled BOINC RPC library

23:14 <MTughan> What I think I'd be looking for:

23:14 <Romulus> <> (at

23:15 <MTughan> Or

23:15 <Romulus> <> (at

23:15 <MTughan> NSStream or NSSocketPort, not sure which.

23:17 <MTughan> Or there's nothing at all...

23:17 <Romulus> <> (at

23:17 <MTughan> Seems a NSFileHandle class can handle stream sockets (guessing TCP here), but not datagram (UDP) or others.

23:18 <MTughan> Now, that last page was posted 3 years ago, but probably not too much has changed.

23:18 <PovAddict> well, BSD socket API are too low-level for most uses

23:18 <PovAddict> it's really useful to have a higher-level library handling buffering and other stuff for you

23:19 <MTughan> Second thing I looked at said NSFileHandle objects or system APIs. I'll look up NSFileHandle.

23:19 <PovAddict> was OS X 10.3 released before or after that blog post?

23:20 <MTughan> Panther... Wiki will know.

23:20 <PovAddict> "Apple released Panther on October 24, 2003."

23:20 <MTughan> Yep.

23:20 <PovAddict> and the blog post is a year later

23:20 <MTughan> Yep.

23:21 <PovAddict> well, just asking because NSStream is 10.3 and up

23:21 <MTughan> Here's NSFileHandle, but I still haven't looked how to get a socket:

23:21 <Romulus> <> (at

23:22 <MTughan> Although while searching on Google, I turned up a Sourceforge project.

23:22 *** chup has joined #boinc

23:22 *** chupa has quit IRC

23:22 <MTughan> Pre-alpha stage at this point though.

23:22 <Romulus> Title: Caitlin - Objective-C Socket Library (at

23:23 <MTughan> Could it be the C++ integration that's making my application take 7% CPU when it updates?

23:23 <MTughan> BTW, that's 7% of one core on a Core Duo 2.0GHz.

23:29 <MTughan> PovAddict?

23:29 <Romulus> It has been said that PovAddict is in Windows, (ab)using unix tools like hell, MTughan

23:30 <MTughan> wdsmia: You don't let people call you Dougie or let them say "sucks", but that goes on fine?

23:30 <wdsmia> asks MTughan to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.

23:31 <PovAddict> MTughan: lemme guess

23:32 <PovAddict> you call get_results, empty your whole list (= GUI object) and reload it with the fresh data?

23:32 <MTughan> Nope.

23:32 <MTughan> I iterate over each object created, asking it if it corresponds to the given C++ object. It checks master url for projects.

23:33 <MTughan> If it does, I tell it to update.

23:33 <PovAddict> and master url + name for tasks?

23:33 <MTughan> Something like that. I can check it.

23:34 <MTughan> And actually, the GUI object has nothing to do with this. All the updates are done within the framework, with callback message when updates are available.

23:34 <efc> oh well, gave up on the LAN
