16:10 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

16:10 <jackygrahamez> I got a problem with my daemons I suspect, I have a custom workunit generator which has worked fine until works but after a few minutes it only creates workunits it does not produce results. I refresh the daemons and suddenly I have results created

16:13 <jackygrahamez> My cron uses this command 0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * /home/boincadm/projects/hydrogen/bin/start --cron

16:13 <PovAddict> if a daemon dies, start --cron will restart it

16:14 *** zombie67 has left #boinc

16:15 <Didactylos> There's a Peter Pan joke in there somewhere.

16:16 <PovAddict> o.O

16:16 <jackygrahamez> why do you suppose manually running bin/stop && bin/start produces the results while the cron does not?

16:17 <KathrynM> the cron daemons are picking on you

16:17 <KathrynM> or the same reason my boinc logs refuse to rotate at time.

16:18 <jackygrahamez> Do I need to sacrifice someone?

16:18 * PovAddict hides

16:18 <KathrynM> a young virgin?

16:19 <jackygrahamez> I'm sure Richard Branson can assist

16:20 <Didactylos> Ah, the joys of debugging cron.

16:21 <Didactylos> All the cron headaches I've ever had have been caused by the fact that cron runs scripts in a different shell, without running any startup scripts.

16:21 <Didactylos> Embarrassing but true.

16:25 <CoderForLife> well - the good news is that we can stop our digging just short of China

16:57 <Tank_Master> yep

16:57 <Tank_Master> it was broke for a while to

16:57 <MTughan> Wish I'd been there for that...

16:57 <MTughan> Sounds like my laptop. Won't boot up.

16:57 <Tank_Master> was here, but didnt do anything

16:57 <MTughan> Looked it up, seems it's a motherboard issue. Funny thing is that this is the third MB I've had in this.

17:01 *** wdsmia_w has quit IRC

17:18 <PovAddict> Ageless93[Away]: are you playing with the wiki?

17:18 <Ageless93[Away]> no, writing a ticket

17:19 <PovAddict> then we have a different Jordan editing the wiki

17:19 <Ageless93[Away]> I haven't signed on as Jordan anyway... not my name. :)

17:20 <Ageless93[Away]> when there's a problem with the scheduler that's making the client forget things, then what would you put it under? client or server?

17:20 <PovAddict> right, you're Jorden

17:22 <Didactylos> I thought you were going to say "when there's a problem with the scheduler that's making PovAddict forget things"....

17:23 <Ageless93[Away]> lol

17:23 <Didactylos> Ageless93[Away]: server. If that's what needs fixing. Add manager in the tags.

17:23 <Didactylos> s/manager/client/

17:24 <Ageless93[Away]> the WCG forums are also very weird on that. They log me out for a couple of hours a day, then auto-log me back in... Or I am there, logged in, go to a thread and am logged out, try to answer and am logged in again. Very weird. ;)

17:25 <Didactylos> I know how it happens, but it's not something I ever want to try to explain.

17:28 <Ageless93[Away]> oh look, there's a boinc 6.1.17 for Linux

17:28 <PovAddict> yup

17:29 <Ageless93[Away]> I still can't install .16 on WindowsXP though

17:29 <Ageless93[Away]> stupid stuff ;)

17:29 <PovAddict> added .17 to version list on tickets

17:29 <Ageless93[Away]> worked a charm on Win2k... must be XP

17:29 <Ageless93[Away]> anyway, brb

17:46 <Ageless93> I bet so too

17:46 <Romulus> ok im running Einstein, doesnt work right now

17:46 <MTughan> AI's having some trouble with recent applications.

17:47 <MTughan> Oh, and they implemented a credit limit for the forums. 7000 credits.

17:47 <MTughan> I only have 2915 though...

17:48 <Ageless93> unable to handle request: average credit is all I get

17:48 <MTughan> Looks like usually 33-43 credits per WU...

17:49 <wdsmia> re-hi

17:49 <Ageless93> they're looking for moderators though

17:50 <MTughan> Yeah, I already PM'd Ovidiu.

17:51 <MTughan> And I do already have a bit of a reputation, for making a Mac application. I sent it to him, but they'd prefer to build in house. Reminds me, I'll have to see if I can pull the Makefile off...

17:52 <Ageless93> I'm telling him I'm only interested if no one else is. It's about time some other blood than the usual bunch becomes a mod.

17:59 <jackygrahamez> Just want to know because I'm planning something this summer

18:00 <Ageless93> the great big outdoor BOINC get-to-gether also known as teh Washington BOINC BBQ? ;)

18:00 <PovAddict> lol

18:00 <jackygrahamez> not quite Washington, more like Deleware

18:00 <Ageless93> that makes a difference.

18:00 <jackygrahamez> And who in their right minds would fly to Deleware?

18:01 <Ageless93> who in their right minds would hold a BBQ there?

18:01 <jackygrahamez> So I figure it is only worth it if you are in driving range

18:01 <jackygrahamez> or visiting in-laws ;-)

18:01 <Didactylos> I don't get this RAC requirement.

18:02 <jackygrahamez> Then again maybe gas will be up to $10/gallon by then

18:02 <Ageless93> try starting a new thread when you don't have enough credits, David.

18:02 <Didactylos> To me, it says "we don't care about your problems getting started"

18:51 <Ageless93> 36 scheduler operation later, I am glad I am not attached to more projects ;)

18:55 <Ageless93> of course it's now asking work from all projects, even though I managed to get in that 30 of them are on NNT...

18:55 <Ageless93> sigh

19:06 <KathrynM> AI is one screwed up project.

19:06 <KathrynM> apparently the work crashes if boinc is restarted

19:06 <KathrynM> they take 2 hours on my machine can came with an eta of 11 minutes

19:06 <KathrynM> forget it.

19:06 <Romulus> Got it.

19:06 <Ageless93> email them if you don't have 7K credits ;)

19:07 <KathrynM> lol my 400.  And on one of their db crashes they lost liek 200 of my credits

19:07 <KathrynM> 7K is a bit stupid

19:07 * KathrynM is back (gone 08:07:32)

19:07 <Ageless93> just a tiny bit... especially as it also comprises their help desk forums.

19:20 <Ageless93> your first? you plan on making more then?

19:20 * CoderForLife thanks the babelfish that swam by for the tip

19:21 <CoderForLife> it could also be my last - no plans to repeat

19:21 <Ageless93> ever?

19:21 * KathrynM slowly opens the electric bill

19:22 <CoderForLife> it's not like I'm trying - that would be a mistake

19:22 <KathrynM> not so bad.  21 dollars.

19:22 <CoderForLife> what currency?

19:23 <KathrynM> That's a rough translation to USD

19:23 <CoderForLife> you're running boinc and only paying $21?

19:23 <KathrynM> uh huh

19:23 <KathrynM> people above me bill is 13

19:24 <Ageless93> cheap electricity

19:25 * CoderForLife wonders how she knows these things

19:25 <KathrynM> I work with the people above me

19:25 <Ageless93> you got your own wind turbine?

19:25 *** cactaur has quit IRC

19:25 <KathrynM> utilities are stupid cheep here.

19:26 <CoderForLife> hmm

19:26 <KathrynM> except natural gas.  don't know what's up with that

19:26 *** cactaur has joined #boinc

19:27 <Ageless93> it's attached to the oil price so it goes up because your native coin isn't worth crap anymore ;)

19:28 <KathrynM> dollar vs won has been going up.  It was down to something like 910 won to the dollar.  its 996 now

19:29 <KathrynM> which sucks because the worse the dollar the better it is for me.

19:29 <wdsmia> asks KathrynM to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

19:33 <KathrynM> ouch

19:33 <Ageless93> oh, so I can say damn, but not suck5

19:34 <xcamel> seems so

19:34 <efc> Hmm, now all I need is a billion in R/D and I'm set

19:36 <xcamel>

19:36 <Romulus> <> (at

19:36 <xcamel> Yahoo! pimping malware from banner ads

19:44 <Ageless93> so much for Einstein resending the lost result then... I got a new one, on the same hostID.

19:46 <KathrynM> after merging the hosts?

19:46 <Ageless93> not needed, was the same hostID

19:46 <Romulus> but now with the word "search"... the order of magnitude off current credits on the forums

19:48 * CoderForLife is worn to a frazzle

19:48 <CoderForLife> I wonder how thick a frazzle is

19:49 <CoderForLife> not very, I imagine

19:49 <Ageless93> 0.3 micrometers

19:49 <CoderForLife> 89% of all statistics are made up on-the-fly

19:49 <xcamel> measured in nanocubits

19:50 <CoderForLife> fraggles are a bit thicker, as I recall

19:50 <xcamel> the other 11% are just "made up"

19:52 <Ageless93> Fraggles are, yes, but they're kinda fuzzy and cuddly as well

19:52 <KathrynM> crapppppppppppppppppppp...  boinc is not running!  I swear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

19:53 <KathrynM> but at least the manager isn't crashing the client anymore

19:53 <Ageless93> walking then?

19:53 <KathrynM> any idea what this is?

19:53 <KathrynM> execvp(boinc, -redirectio, -launched_by_manager, -insecure) failed with error 2!

19:54 <CoderForLife> well - I'm going to you outside and do the primal scream to get all the neighbors cheered up, and then think about going to bed early

19:54 <Ageless93> you're the Linux guru

19:54 <KathrynM> sleep well

19:55 <CoderForLife> thx folks

19:55 <Ageless93> nn CFL

19:55 <KathrynM> yeah right.  I bumble along the best I can.

19:55 <CoderForLife> glad you're back Jay

19:55 * CoderForLife waves a wall plan

19:55 * KathrynM waves an init.d script

19:58 * PovAddict is back

19:59 * KathrynM is gonna get ready to see the miniature people

20:00 * Ageless93 chats with Eric Myers

20:00 <KathrynM> How is he.  I haven't heard from him in a few days.

20:01 <Ageless93> busy.

20:01 <KathrynM> I figured

20:01 * PovAddict used to have Eric Korpela on gtalk - wondering if he removed me or just isn't online anymore

20:01 <PovAddict> prolly latter

20:01 <KathrynM> lol

20:01 <Ageless93> Eric Myers says: 3 more weeks of class and I'm a free man.  yay

20:01 <KathrynM> I rememeber that feeling

20:03 <Ageless93> limit for posting at AIS is now 100

20:04 <Ageless93> and um... well... I got a tag apparently. ;) Together with one Michael Tughan

20:04 <Ageless93> do we know him?

20:04 <PovAddict> MTughan

20:04 <Ageless93> I know...

20:04 <Ageless93> just kidding. Congrats Michael

20:05 * PovAddict will have to tweak his user stylesheet

20:06 <PovAddict> I gotta set img {  max-height: 200px } on all BOINC forums

20:06 <PovAddict> in particular so I don't go crazy with John McLeod VII's signature

20:07 <Ageless93> ask Eric for his cool code then.

20:07 <Ageless93> um Eric M. not the other one.

20:08 <Ageless93> on Pirates signatures are truncated

20:08 <PovAddict> yeah but they have extra code on the forum itself to mark where the signature is

20:08 <PovAddict> on other forums, there isn't any <div class="signature">, just a few underscores to draw a divider line and the sig

20:09 <Ageless93> and that can't be added?

20:09 <PovAddict> sure it can, but I don't have access to the server on all projects ;)

20:09 <PovAddict> but I can limit the image size on the whole page by editing Firefox's user stylesheet

20:10 <Ageless93> what? you can't hack into all projects? damn. ;)

20:11 <PovAddict> nice to see Dagorath posting on forums with some sanity, and editing the wiki, etc

20:11 <PovAddict> instead of creating flamewars like he did on LHC

20:26 *** NudgeyNR has joined #boinc

20:30 <MTughan> Yeah, got the PM from Ovidiu about that too. Seems most people either missed that post (been deleted) or weren't interested.

20:30 <MTughan> Only thing is that swap memory on here seems to be going up and up, but the memory used by processes is still the same...

20:31 <MTughan> Wow... OOo is using 400MB virtual. That's probably the issue...

20:31 <KathrynM> laterz

20:31 * KathrynM is away: I may still exist in an alternate reality...

20:32 <Ageless93> Azureus and Firefox are my memory eaters

20:32 <MTughan> FF is doing pretty good right now, at ~200MB total.

20:32 <MTughan> OOo is ~450MB total.

20:32 <Romulus> that returns a task 10 credit.

20:33 <Ageless93> what's OOo?

20:33 <Romulus> Rumor has it OOo is ~450MB total, Ageless93

20:33 <PovAddict>

20:33 <Ageless93> ok, thought so

20:33 <Ageless93> I got it downloaded but not installed yet. First I want my 2GB of RAM back

20:34 <MTughan> Huh, OOo shutdown, but swap did basically nothing...

20:34 <MTughan> Yeah, running with 1GB here.

20:34 <MTughan> I need $750 to upgrade to an Intel C2Q and 4GB RAM... But spent $280 on a Garmin 260 GPS.

20:34 <Ageless93> inefficient XP, for some reason I am using 533Mb main memory and 577MB page file

20:35 <MTughan> Ah, Fedora 7 here.

20:35 <MTughan> Wow, I found how to run 4 processes with an emulated dual-core...

20:36 <MTughan> In BOINC, that is.

20:36 <MTughan> Unless two other Blender tasks appeared from nowhere, BURP tasks don't suspend.

20:36 <Ageless93> the test option to run multiple CPUs where you have none? ;)

20:36 *** up365 has joined #boinc

20:37 <MTughan> No, I suspended BURP, and the two Blender processes kept using CPU.

20:37 <Ageless93> don't they always

20:38 <MTughan> And they're each using ~500MB memory total. 322MB VRAM and 190MB PRAM each.

20:38 <MTughan> PRAM meaning physical RAM here.

20:38 <Ageless93> so all you want now is for your Predictor to start running its last 20%. ;)

20:38 <Ageless93> and using 750MB

20:38 <MTughan> I don't crunch Predictor.

20:39 <Ageless93> lol

20:39 <MTughan> POEM and Sudoku have the rest of the CPU for now.

20:40 <Ageless93> do Yoyo tasks checkpoint?

20:40 <MTughan> Yeah, here's an unintentional list of the projects I run:

20:40 <Romulus> <> (at

20:40 <MTughan> They do, but when each subtask finishes.

20:40 <MTughan> So it checkpoints 8 times during a WU.

20:41 <Ageless93> ok, thanks

20:41 <Ageless93> then I won't worry

20:41 <MTughan> Anyway, I've got to get back to an essay for English.

20:41 <Ageless93> have fun.

20:42 <Ageless93> to all, I am off to bed. 2:43am is a nice time for that. Laters.
