08:59 <MTughan> All right, display's working fine now. It looked something like what it would when it's not at native res, but it was.

09:01 <corky> ok, lol, but now serious:

09:01 <CoderForLife> hello corky KathrynM MTughan Aeternus

09:02 <KathrynM> mornin' CoderForLife

09:02 <corky> "estimated CPU time remaining: [value]" but in what is the value presented?

09:02 <CoderForLife> fortnights

09:02 <corky> seconds?

09:02 <Aeternus> hi

09:02 <KathrynM> probably seconds

09:03 <CoderForLife> jiffys

09:03 <Romulus> Title: Jiffy (time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at

09:04 <MTughan> Hey Coder.

09:04 <MTughan> corky: Where are you getting that from?

09:05 <corky> ./boinc_cmd --get_results

09:05 <corky> or ./boinc_cmd --get_state

09:05 <corky> dunno which one, gotta check...

09:05 <corky> because i am running it on my "server" without an GUI (and with a nice of -20 :P )

09:06 <MTughan> Hold on a sec...

09:06 <corky> The task will be dome in a "jiffy", But what is a jiffy?!

09:08 <MTughan> &math convert 56185.385722 seconds to hours

09:08 <Romulus> MTughan: 15.6070515894

09:08 <MTughan> Yep, that's in seconds.

09:09 <corky> &math 9000/3600

09:09 <Romulus> corky: 2.5

09:09 <corky> 2 and a half hours yey :P

09:09 <MTughan> &math convert 9000 seconds hours

09:09 <Romulus> MTughan: 2.5

09:09 <MTughan> That works too.

09:09 <Romulus> corky: Error: 'h' is not a defined function.

09:09 <corky> err... T_T

09:09 <MTughan> &help math calc

09:09 <Romulus> MTughan: (math calc <math expression>) -- Returns the value of the evaluated <math expression>. The syntax is Python syntax; the type of arithmetic is floating point. Floating point arithmetic is used in order to prevent a user from being able to crash to the bot with something like '10**10**10**10'. One consequence is that large values such as '10**24' might not be exact.

09:10 <corky> yeah, i thought so!! ^^

09:10 <MTughan> &help math

09:10 <Romulus> MTughan: (math <an alias, 0 arguments>) -- Alias for "math calc $*".

09:10 <corky> btw, where can i find all projects for boin?

09:10 <corky> boinc*

09:10 <MTughan> I made that because people kept forgetting to do math calc, and just did math. :P

09:11 <MTughan> There's no standard list of projects, because there are so many. You could use BOINCStats to discover a fair amount of the bigger ones though.

09:11 <KathrynM> oh goody, yum is behaving better tonight

09:11 <corky> is there no pi@home ? :P

09:11 <MTughan> And Google can help discover them too.

09:11 *** c0dewarrior has quit IRC

09:12 <KathrynM> doesn't zombie have a list somewhere?

09:12 <MTughan> Not much here, but a search for BOINC and Pi on Google turned up this:

09:12 <Romulus> Title: Monte Carlo Pi (at

09:13 <MTughan> &google BOINC Pi

09:13 <Romulus> MTughan: Search took 0.18 seconds: Super PI scores...........: <>; Pi Calculation: <>; BOINCstats | BOINC global - Stats équipe - Stats de dépassement ...: <>; Monte Carlo Pi: <>; (2 more messages)

09:14 <corky> super pi :P

09:14 <MTughan> Oh, and if Romulus ever says something that sounds really stupid out of the blue, ignore it. It's a plugin called Markov that basically repeats portions of statements from other people in the channel.

09:14 <MTughan> &markov

09:14 <Romulus> one has a lot

09:14 <MTughan> Like that.

09:14 <corky> MTughan, lol, i think Romulus is random :P

09:15 <corky> Romulus, are you random?

09:15 <Romulus> I don't know!

09:15 <corky> Romulus, i am!

09:15 <Romulus> Bugger all, I dunno!

09:15 <MTughan> &8b Are you random?

09:15 <Romulus> MTughan: It shall be.

09:15 <corky> MTughan, who administrates the bot?! :P

09:15 <MTughan> So not yet, but he will be?

09:15 <KathrynM> Sadly, rommie is much like S. Korea.  His randomness is getting predictable.

09:15 <MTughan> Actually, that's a good question...

09:16 <MTughan> It's usually xcamel, but he's in Mexico right now.

09:16 <corky> or is it like, opensource?

09:23 <MTughan> Read that link. It's a sort of geek comic. xD

09:24 <Romulus> hmmm.. down to the boinc dir... am i using optimized versions speed things up... it should be build. If you know where to get one running here, at about 93% at the beginning:

09:24 <corky> or this:"int main(void) { return 0 ; }" but that is pretty useless

09:24 <KathrynM> lol

09:24 <corky> LOL

09:24 <KathrynM> oh, lol at the comic, not at the code

09:24 * KathrynM is not a coder

09:31 <Romulus> Live long and crunch!

09:31 * KathrynM is away: I may still exist in an alternate reality...

09:32 <MTughan> Looking at the Jiffy article on Wikipedia, I see that a jiffy is a rather short period of time... "In physics (particularly in quantum physics and often in chemistry), a jiffy is the time taken for light to travel the radius of an electron."

09:32 <MTughan> About 3 * 10**-24

09:32 <MTughan> &math 3 * 10**-24

09:32 <Romulus> MTughan: 0

09:32 <CoderForLife> the time it takes light to traverse a Planck length

09:32 <MTughan> Yeah, something like that... :P

09:33 <MTughan> How long does it take light to travel one light year?

09:33 <CoderForLife> the smallest measure of reality

09:33 <CoderForLife> hmm

09:33 * CoderForLife takes out the calculator

09:33 <corky> ah here, utube, ur doin it wrong

09:33 <MTughan> Okay, if you're really taking out the calculator, you're messed.

09:36 <Romulus> MTughan: the speed of light = 299,792,458 m / s

09:36 <MTughan> Awesome...

09:36 <Romulus> good for only short bursts. anything sustained, and they were before opening shredder.

09:36 <MTughan> And for when we're sort of frustrated at him...

09:36 <MTughan> &stfu

17:58 <jackygrahamez> ok

17:59 <Ageless93> you set up the auto-join? If so, good. Then any next time you start this program, this channel is one click away.

18:07 <jackygrahamez> Yes I setup auto-login

18:08 <Romulus> anyway, currently I'm trying to rewrite the BOINC manager while keeping current tasks?

18:08 <jackygrahamez> Just to give you a heads up, I put a big load on my server today and it cause us some problems

18:09 <jackygrahamez> I thought I would be smooth and run make_work several times on each workunit we create so we give out more work

18:10 <KathrynM> uh oh

18:10 <PovAddict> why not just increase initial replication?

18:10 <PovAddict> or... leave it as it is

18:10 * CoderForLife jumps as his KathrynM detector alarm goes off

18:11 <jackygrahamez> Wanted to see what it would do

18:11 <PovAddict> each hour crunched for your project is one hour less for other projects; so it better be a worthwhile hour :)

18:11 <jackygrahamez> Initial replication, is that the number of results per workunit?

18:11 * KathrynM pokes CoderForLife

18:11 <CoderForLife> ouch

18:11 <PovAddict> yes jackygrahamez

18:11 <PovAddict> aka target_nresults

18:12 <CoderForLife> Aaaaoooooooggaaahhhhh

18:12 <jackygrahamez> Good point, well suffice it to say, I was just checking it out

18:12 <KathrynM> Has the server recovered yet?

18:13 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez: how many Wus did you create...?

18:42 <jackygrahamez> I'm out of here guys

18:42 <corky> how can i setup boinc that it works on more processes (then two (or one on my other PC))?

18:42 <corky> Or does BOINC manage this by "himself" based on if the host is a single/dual core?

18:42 *** jackygrahamez has quit IRC

18:44 <PovAddict> corky: it of course uses as many cores as you have by default

18:45 <corky> PovAddict, ofcourse, i know that, But where can i set how many processes are working

18:45 <Romulus> Thats why the data used by Uppercase example?

18:45 <corky> (active)

18:45 <PovAddict> in your preferences

18:45 <PovAddict> "use at most X CPUs"

18:46 <PovAddict> but by default it's a high number like 16 so it should be already using 2 if you have a dualcore

18:46 <corky> "ON multiprocessor systems, use at most X processors"

18:47 <corky> thats PROCESSORS, i am talking about PROCESSES that are ACTIVE

18:47 <corky> (i use CAPS to make my self clear a bit ;-)  )

18:47 <PovAddict> if you have a single core, you *can't* make it run more than one at a time

18:47 <corky> let me geus, on a dual core two?

18:48 <PovAddict> yup... if you have a dual core, BOINC should be already running two workunits at a time

18:48 <corky> *can't* i let it do more?

18:48 <corky> after all, windows/linux are hybrid kernels

18:48 <PovAddict> no, that would make things *slower* due to memory bandwidth

18:48 <corky> with process management :)

18:49 <corky> PovAddict, thats *not so good* :P

18:49 <corky> i mean *:P*

18:50 <corky> maybe i should create a virus, and let it install itself on many systems so i can earn much more credit! muhuahauhaaaa....

18:50 <PovAddict> somebody already tried that

18:50 <PovAddict> his account got deleted on all projects

18:50 <corky> yeah, its not original is it?..

18:50 <corky> maybe i can create a cluster which runs many processes :P

18:51 <PovAddict> sure, in that case the cluster would be yours

18:51 <corky> PovAddict,

18:51 * corky understands the license and legal ~censored~

18:52 <corky> maybe i can get many old computers for free, tap power from powerlines and then install linux/boinc on them and administrate them while the processes have a nice value of -20 yey!

18:55 <PovAddict> corky: no it won't

18:55 <PovAddict> you would, however, get in bigger trouble for tapping power from powerlines

18:55 <CoderForLife> and possibly get dead

18:56 <corky> well, ofcourse i wont do that lol, tapping powers is for ~censored~ s that don't pay bills

18:58 <corky> in human words: explain?

18:58 <CoderForLife> death and injury

18:59 <corky> you mean like co-workers or something? or just plain high-end users who "wanna save a few bucks"

18:59 <CoderForLife> one guy just blown across the room when he was cleaning a 6000V breaker that was safety-tagged for maintenance

19:00 <CoderForLife> they were able to save his arm

19:00 <efc> I hope you mean that wasn't all they were able to save

19:00 <corky> yeah, i wanted to say "and about his life?"

19:01 <CoderForLife> well, there was the sanity part they weren't able to get back

19:01 <CoderForLife> he wasn't right after that

19:01 <CoderForLife> I think while I w@#%ed there we lost 4 or 5 people over the course of about 8 years

19:02 <corky> so he was just an client of the company that wanted to fix it by him self?.. thats like dumb!

19:02 <CoderForLife> one got hit by a train in front of the plant when he crossed against the signals

19:03 <corky> Oh, i know that problem, Happend in my town to, To a 15 year old boy, about 3 years ago

19:03 <CoderForLife> no, the guy was an hourly employee in the maintenance department

19:03 <corky> well, accidents happen

19:03 <CoderForLife> the foreman had checked the drawings, and had tagged the equipment out for repair (cleaning in this case)

19:04 <CoderForLife> what he didn't see was that this one breaker has back-fed from another source on one of the 3 phases - it was the only one like that

19:04 <CoderForLife> nasty stuff

19:05 <corky> CoderForLife, yeah, Well, some stuff sucks in life all i can say

19:41 <CoderForLife> b-bye

19:41 *** xcamel_mx has quit IRC

19:42 *** corky has quit IRC

19:42 <CoderForLife> "wallop" is the sound an Extreme Wall makes as it goes up

19:42 *** corky has joined #boinc

19:42 <CoderForLife> wb corky

19:43 <CoderForLife> somebody pulled your cork, er plug

19:43 <corky> yes thanks :)

19:43 <corky> and no, my ethernet cable is a bit crappy (lets home that isn't a curse) and it slipped out

19:44 <corky> i define crappy as "nsfw" (or not safe for work, because that clip has broken off)

19:44 <corky> and yes, i am on a laptop, and yes, it has wifi, and no, i hate wireless

19:45 <Excelsi0r> :)

19:45 <Excelsi0r> hi there

19:45 <corky> Excelsi0r,

19:45 * corky hates MS for some strange reason

19:46 * CoderForLife stands and declares: "MS got to me twice last week, but never again."

19:47 * corky hands CoderForLife over a ubuntu live cd and says:"Linux for human beings"

19:47 * CoderForLife then continues reviewing his decade-old Excel parser

19:48 <CoderForLife> I think when I turned off the Y2K date analysis, I switched off formula parser recursion in general

19:49 <Excelsi0r> Ah...

19:50 <Excelsi0r> don't think my pseudo as a M$ ideology

19:50 <Excelsi0r> I've said fu.. off to bill since 18 months

19:51 <corky> strange, i am running BOINC at full speed

19:52 <corky> SpeedFan 4.33 says this:

19:52 <corky> Temp1: 95C; WOW; Temp2: 83C; less of a WOW but head turning; Temp3: -128C; OK, READ ERROR!; Core: 84C; Thats my nVidia i think lol

19:53 <Excelsi0r> erk

19:53 <Excelsi0r> speed fan

19:53 <corky> yeah

19:53 <CoderForLife> that's OK - "where there's mystery, there's margin"

19:53 <Romulus> Alos tried Tanpaku, this is a bad trot myself

19:54 <Excelsi0r> let's don't use a M$-designed tool :)

19:54 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

19:55 <Excelsi0r> mind that lm-sensors thinks my CPU is my MB

19:55 <corky> Excelsi0r, yey, lets close boinc's software and built an closed-source variant of it that would only run on linux, just to mess around with balmer who called linux "Cancer" which settles in "Anything that has to do with intelectualy property.", oh...

19:57 <Excelsi0r> hmm... I don't think it'd be such a good idea

19:58 <PovAddict> Excelsi0r: SpeedFan is not designed by MS...

19:58 <corky> we would lose a lot of computing power over the battle

19:58 <PovAddict> corky: that will just make us lose contributors

19:58 <Excelsi0r> PovAddict: I know that, it's just a windows utility (or am I wrong ?)

19:58 <corky> and that would ~censored~!

19:58 <PovAddict> remember BOINC is a bit opposite from most software... the user doesn't really benefit from running it, the project does

19:58 <PovAddict> Excelsi0r: so what

19:59 * CoderForLife tries to make money while the issue rages on

19:59 <Excelsi0r> so, nothing. I was just saying him to try some GNU utility

20:00 <corky> Excelsi0r, to me?

20:00 <PovAddict> lm-sensors won't work outside Linux

20:00 <Excelsi0r> Hey, I wasn't attacking anyone

20:00 <corky> Excelsi0r, where you saying to me to use a GNU utility?

20:01 <Excelsi0r> that was the idea, yeah

20:01 *** Excelsi0r has left #boinc

20:01 *** Excelsi0r has joined #boinc

20:01 <Excelsi0r> woops

20:01 <PovAddict> *where*

20:01 <corky> Excelsi0r, err, i don't know if you know, but today i deleted my linux distro! D':

20:02 <corky> was ubuntu 7.10 and now i am back at vista, oh oh oh, what would my friends enjoy this

20:02 <PovAddict> vista?

20:02 <corky> yes, don't blame me

20:02 * PovAddict changes sides and stands next to Excelsi0r

20:02 <corky> it was a weird day today, my computer decided to stop working at all, just start the fan and stop

20:03 <corky> so i thought "wTf?1"

20:03 <Excelsi0r> he hey

20:03 <corky> and i got my rescue cd's in last hope before trying the costumer support line in the netherlands who are closed

20:04 <Excelsi0r> and you manage to make it working ?

20:06 <corky> yes, a miricle happend

20:06 <corky> my laptop just wants to start when she feels like it

20:07 <corky> (cars are female, so i thought setting a standard for laptops, after all she has nice cores, uhhhh....)

20:07 <Excelsi0r> so why did you got back to MS in the end ?

20:09 <corky> i wanted to get my system working to do some browsing (and BOINC ofcourse)

20:09 <corky> so i got putty and got my daily linux dose via it to my server (which also runs boinc)

20:09 <Excelsi0r> ah, wifi, ok

20:09 <corky> but.... i am out of ubuntu live cd's so i need to download the ISO and burn it to my cd-rw

20:09 <Excelsi0r> lol ok

20:10 <corky> and Excelsi0r i lost TWO inportant things!

20:10 <corky> my alsa-rescue script (which fixes alsa when i am doing an reinstall) and my music liberary

20:10 <PovAddict> zomg

20:11 <corky> yes, its a daymare!

20:11 <corky> (i wouldn't call day a night aint it?)

20:11 <corky> yes, worse: I had the new metallica demo's!

20:12 <Excelsi0r> ouch

20:12 <Excelsi0r> that is a loss

20:12 <corky> yes, even the matrix triloggy (or how ever you type it)

20:13 <corky> trillolloggy (or something)

20:13 <Excelsi0r> this is more common to find

20:13 <corky> Back to the Future 1 - 3

20:13 <Excelsi0r> personnaly, i type "trilogie"

20:13 <corky> thats a possibility to

20:13 <Excelsi0r> because it's the french ortograph :)

20:13 <corky> french s@#$%s

20:14 <Excelsi0r> get bent :)

20:14 <corky> s@#$s

20:14 <corky> my bad, but i don't like the language

20:14 <Excelsi0r> nor the frenchs

20:14 <corky> i prefer engish and german over dutch and russian over english and german

20:14 <corky> because it is cool

20:14 <Excelsi0r> roflmao

20:15 <corky> come on!, Don't you like the russian anthem? :P

20:15 <Excelsi0r> I don't know it

20:27 * CoderForLife marvels at his Coding skills from a decade ago

20:27 <CoderForLife> that guy had Code dripping from his fingers - wonder where he went?

20:29 <Ageless93> back in the bottle?

20:30 <Ageless93> or whatever it is that code genies come out of...

20:30 *** cactaur has joined #boinc

20:31 <CoderForLife> lol

20:31 <CoderForLife> could be

20:32 * CoderForLife looks at his waistline

20:32 <CoderForLife> don't think I'd fit now

20:32 <Ageless93> don't

20:32 <Romulus> Seems that way. I'll stick to my phonics skills.

20:33 <Ageless93> bigger bottle?

20:33 <CoderForLife> that's been the pants plan for some time

20:33 <Ageless93> or heck, forget the bottle, go for the keg

20:33 <CoderForLife> lol

20:35 <Ageless93> anyway, I am off to bed. the cat seems to want me there as she can't sleep alone. weird animals.

20:37 *** Ageless93 is now known as Ageless_93[zzzz]

21:19 <_Danilo_> hello Romulus :)

21:20 <efc> Hmm might watch the SG-1 movie tonight

21:20 <PovAddict> &markov Hmm might

21:20 <PovAddict> damn, Romulus still ignoring me

21:21 <efc> &roulette

21:21 <Romulus> efc: *click*

21:24 <CoderForLife> Looks like Mr. Sandman is going to claim me as well

21:24 <CoderForLife> gn boinc mavens

21:27 <Tank_Master> I saw the SG1 "movie" shortly after it came out

21:27 <Tank_Master> great as a show, not so movie like

21:29 <Excelsi0r> there's a SG1 movie ?

21:29 <Excelsi0r> I'm not sure it'd be as good as the first stargate movie

21:29 <efc> "Ark of Truth" and another one is coming out in a few months

21:31 <efc> I see it as just an extra long episode with no commericals

21:31 <Excelsi0r> I guess hollywood wanted more money

21:32 <efc> I think they had basically done all they could with the show, and wanted to try something else

21:33 <Excelsi0r> Well, if the fans are satisfied with it, it's worth the shot

21:34 * Excelsi0r just saw he'll reach 150,000 points in BOINC recently

21:37 <efc> I gotta update the fleet sometime so these whippersnappers don't pass me

21:38 <Excelsi0r> hmm.. I'm not following you

21:39 <efc> the computer fleet

21:40 <Excelsi0r> I figured out that part. I just didn't get who were the whippersnappers

21:44 <Excelsi0r> I guess that's none of my business, so...

21:45 <efc> You don't know what a whippersnapper is?

21:46 <Excelsi0r> I found a translation

21:46 <Excelsi0r> but you said "these" whippersnappers

21:46 <efc> There's more than one of them. They breed.

21:46 <efc> ah, the definition doesn't say what I thought it would

21:46 <efc> I mean it to be "youngsters"

21:48 <Excelsi0r> okay, I didn't thought you were talking generally

21:51 <PovAddict> 280k here
