IRC logs of #boinc for Sunday, 2008-04-13

00:00 <PovAddict> ... twelve million views and almost twenty thousand comments?!

00:02 <MTughan> Window showed for a brief moment, then disappeared.

00:02 <MTughan> Error: Could not get dma buffer... exiting

00:02 * PovAddict blames OpenGL

00:02 <PovAddict> I'm definitely not screwing with dma

00:02 <MTughan> It was Compiz anyway.

00:02 <MTughan> Looks nice.

00:02 <Romulus> puts flower in xcamel's mouth

00:03 <MTughan> Although I'm still getting the flickering lines on some of them.

00:03 <PovAddict> features > bugs

00:04 <MTughan> But what point is there in making an incredibly buggy program that has tons of features?

00:04 <PovAddict> ask Microsoft

00:04 <MTughan> No, ask them why they redid everything.

00:04 <PovAddict> they seem to get away with it and make money too

00:05 <MTughan> Well, that's from OEM's not putting Linux on.

00:05 <MTughan> Dell's starting in the right direction with Ubuntu as an option.

00:08 <PovAddict> I think noobs are best kept away from Linux

00:09 <PovAddict> ...and *idiots* best left away from computers XD

00:09 <PovAddict> btw, awesome quote from questionablecontent:

00:09 <PovAddict> "Maturity is knowing you were an idiot in the past. Wisdom is knowing you'll be an idiot in the future. Common sense is knowing that you should try not to be an idiot now."

07:20 <KathrynM> hiya Jord

07:20 * Ageless93 yawns and tries to get the futz out of his eyes.

07:20 <Ageless93> ullo

07:21 <KathrynM> Just getting up?

07:21 <Ageless93> for once, yes. was sleeping out. shouldn't do that anymore as my eyes are all swollen.

07:22 <Ageless93> spring. really like it. hatchoo. urgh

07:22 <KathrynM> ah yes.  Allergies.

07:22 <KathrynM> Don't know which is worse.  My allergies or the migraine.

07:22 <Ageless93> they said it would rain all day today. Never seen this much sun on a rainy day.

07:23 <KathrynM> funny, they said the same thing here.

07:23 <KathrynM> owwwwwwwwwww!

07:23 <KathrynM> the gp drew blood.

07:23 <KathrynM> Those are some nasty little nails she has.

07:23 <Ageless93> then cut them.

07:24 <KathrynM> I did that once.

07:24 <KathrynM> I still have the scars

07:24 <Ageless93> but be careful with that that she doesn't bleed

07:24 <Ageless93> quick little feet they got ;)

07:24 <KathrynM> that's for sure

07:24 <KathrynM> gotta watch out for the teeth too

07:24 <Ageless93> you think you hold paw... nope.

07:25 <Ageless93> ah luckily, Rosie doesn't bite.

07:25 <KathrynM> SParks only  bits when I'm trying to clip her nails

07:25 <Ageless93> trick: fixing her up with a piece of her favorite 'candy', she won't be biting you.

07:26 <KathrynM> SHe's mad at me.

07:26 <KathrynM> No green peppers

07:26 <Ageless93> of course, if there's this huge piece of cucumber lying on your lap, it's more difficult to find the paws ;)

07:26 <KathrynM> lol

07:27 <Ageless93> but I got a very handy nail clipper these days. All animals can be done with it and it's a breeze

07:28 <Ageless93> it's got two small half circles in the cutting blades, so you just slide it over the nails... snap. netx nail

07:28 <Ageless93> only difficult when your GP has screw-like nails.

07:30 <Ageless93> looking at radar, I see all the rain passed by us already, all to the south and east of us.

11:27 <MTughan> Hey corky. Been around here for a while now?

11:27 <corky> MTughan, yeah a bit :P

11:27 <corky> i was calculating a very simple thing

11:28 <corky> do you know the Arecibo message?

11:28 <corky> consists of 1679 bits, sended to M13 on 17 november 1974? :P

11:28 <corky> 16

11:28 <corky> 16 novmenber *

11:29 <corky> well MTughan ?

11:30 *** frost has quit IRC

11:31 <corky> btw, i calculated that if the radio message is send on 16 november 1974, and M13 is about 25.1 kly away from here (kly = kilo lightyear; kilo = X*1000 duh :P), "the message" will arrive on...

11:32 <Romulus> corky: 27074

11:32 <corky> on the year 27074 :P

11:32 <corky> so i thought, maybe i can freeze myself until 27073 :P

11:32 <MTughan> So M13 is 25100 lightyears away?

11:32 <corky> but i will probally die in the process,

11:33 <corky> MTughan, thats what google says

11:33 <MTughan> Then yep, 27073.

16:58 <PovAddict> ah wait, it wasn't validated yet

16:59 <corky> i am going to laugh if i get credit for that! xD

16:59 <PovAddict> you probably will...

16:59 <corky> in a few moments :P

16:59 <PovAddict> just gotta wait for your wingman to finish -> http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=250374783

16:59 <corky> i think the guy validating this has laughed so hard he died due to lack of oxygen

17:00 <PovAddict> nope, you just have no other result to validate against yet :)

17:01 <corky> http://xkcd.com/149/

17:01 <Romulus> Title: xkcd - A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language - By Randall Munroe (at xkcd.com)

17:01 <corky> can i let boinc accept only small tasks (like tasks that take a few minutes accept hours)

17:02 *** nickuwo has quit IRC

17:02 <PovAddict> no

17:02 <PovAddict> your client can't "accept" or "reject" anything

17:02 <PovAddict> client asks for work, server decides what to send

17:02 <corky> it get just shoved up his port

17:02 <PovAddict> server of course takes client settings into account when deciding what to send

17:03 <PovAddict> but once the server sends you something, you can't say no (unless you abort them)

17:03 <corky> ofcourse, so no custom source can get past that?, bagger! -_-*

17:04 <PovAddict> you could make your client abort them :)

17:05 <PovAddict> but if you abort a lot you get sent, your daily quota gets reduced

17:06 <PovAddict> I thought of making this:

17:07 <PovAddict> server doesn't send work, it "offers" work

17:07 <PovAddict> server doesn't mark it as "sent to client X" until the client "accepts" it

17:07 <PovAddict> it would allow improving a lot the work fetch algorithms

17:08 <PovAddict> the client could ask *all* projects for work, then analyze what each project offered, and decide what to keep

17:10 <corky> yes, thats more logical but needs more CPU power

17:10 <corky> btw, what is Maximum daily WU quota per CPU ?

17:10 <PovAddict> why would it need more CPU?

17:11 <PovAddict> I'd rather waste a whole 2 seconds deciding what work to keep, than wasting a whole 2 hours crunching work that doesn't meet deadline

17:18 * Ageless93 is no longer away : Gone for 9 hours 35 minutes 52 seconds

17:20 <Ageless93> anyone know how the Almeregrid tasks work? Are they run as non-CPU intensive only?

17:20 <PovAddict> never heard of Almeregrid

17:21 <Ageless93> I've tried to force run one, but then my CPU cycles are taken up by Windows Idle system. When left alone, it never runs in the sequence of BOINC's app switching.

17:22 <Ageless93> it doesn't gatter time or percentages either..

17:22 <Ageless93> as for a link, it's in the FAQs, Nick.

17:23 <Ageless93> too bad it doesn't say much on the site. No forums. And the only Q&A they have is in Dutch, but still doesn't say much.

17:23 <Ageless93> although it has a funny sentence that say something alike, 'you can run multiple projects on this BOINC, but it's not advised to do so"... ahem. ;)

17:24 <PovAddict> lolwut

17:24 <PovAddict> http://stuff.povaddict.com.ar/pgss2.avi <- what I'm working on

17:27 <Ageless93> how big is that file?

17:27 <Ageless93> it says here Unknown...

17:27 <PovAddict> 3MB

17:27 <Ageless93> ah, halfway there then

17:31 <Ageless93> ok... have you ever seen the Pirates starboard screen saver?

17:31 <PovAddict> yep

17:31 <Ageless93> it does that Matrix effect already, though in monolour.

17:31 <Ageless93> um monocolour

17:33 <corky> Ageless93, is it color or colour

17:33 <corky> or can we use both color and colour?

17:33 <PovAddict> corky: are you american or british?

17:33 <PovAddict> :)

17:33 <corky> dutch :P

17:34 <corky> altrough i use a bit slang tough, makes my english look better, for both exams and just to be the fo-shizzle (aka cool :P)

17:34 <PovAddict> "fo shizzle ma nizzle" is a bastardization of "fo' sheezy mah neezy" which is a bastardization of "for sure mah nigga" which is a bastdardization of "I concur with you whole heartedly my African american brother"

17:35 <corky> ok PovAddict, what are you "coding"

17:35 <corky> yes, i know, but it just sounds fun! :P

17:36 <corky> i like how you use the word bastardization, i gotta write that down

17:39 <PovAddict> not my text

17:39 <efc> interesting line of code in pulse folding..

17:39 <PovAddict> I took it from bash.org

17:39 <efc> for (i = 32, n = 1; i <= PPLANMAX; n++, i *= 2);

17:39 <corky> PovAddict, bash.org ok, maybe we should add this to bash.org !

17:40 <corky> yey, i am going to be famous and be on bash.org

17:40 <PovAddict> add what?

17:40 <corky> i can now use the "hello world." example to actually say "hello world."

17:40 <corky> hello world.

17:41 <corky> so people can laugh about me saying "hello world." to the readers of bash.org (so that i think bash.org is the world)

17:41 <corky> damn, why do i want to be famous anyway?... it just sucks, just like chris crocker and britney spears

17:41 <wdsmia> asks corky to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

17:48 * corky expects to get a link from someone in this channel to bash.org

17:53 <CoderForLife> my "famous" alert went off

18:49 <Ageless93> like i ever use it. Then again, that doesn't seem to work anyway in 6.1, not by default anyway.

19:55 <Ageless93> you sure jumping in the shower is a good idea?

19:55 <CoderForLife> not sleepy Ageless93?

19:56 <CoderForLife> it's a bit slick

19:56 <Ageless93> I was more thinking of the neighbors..

19:57 <Ageless93> sleepy... not until I had my last cuppa tea.

19:57 <CoderForLife> they probably jump in the shower, too

19:57 <Ageless93> or latest

19:57 * CoderForLife sits and blinks

19:57 <CoderForLife> Coding is an interesting thing

19:58 <Ageless93> I usually walk into the shower, then stand still... or reasonably still at least. In these flats you can almost hear your neighbors breathe.

19:58 <CoderForLife> no wonder you can't sleep

19:58 <Ageless93> we're always wondering what happens upstairs. ;)

19:59 <Ageless93> but it's only 2am... I don't have work to go to in the morning.

19:59 <CoderForLife> when I lived in an aprtment, I heard some good fights

19:59 <CoderForLife> apartment, even

19:59 <Ageless93> yes, well, with our last upstairs neighbors we could hear it whenever they had nooky.

20:00 <CoderForLife> yeah, typical

20:00 <Ageless93> the new ones now... well, let's say one of them is a tosser and turner.

20:00 <Ageless93> with very squeaky bed springs

20:01 <CoderForLife> I don't regret moving out

20:02 <Ageless93> you're now living alone in the woods, surrounded by all kinds of noisless animals?

20:02 <CoderForLife> the final straw was when the high school wrestling coach who had to marry the cheerleader was holding their baby in one hand, and a butcher knife in the other, with the police trying to calm him dowm

20:03 <CoderForLife> normal Friday nights

20:04 <efc> Do you have the cheerleader's phone number?

20:04 <CoderForLife> that was about a year after an arsonist burned down the apartment building across the parking lot that was under construction

20:04 <CoderForLife> you don't want to meet her ex

20:05 <efc> Well I could be like a salmon that breeds once and then dies

20:05 <CoderForLife> that would be the case here

20:05 <efc> the salmon's got me beat by one

20:06 <CoderForLife> well, I'm going to swim off into the night
