15:17 <zombie67> what country is domain "at"?

15:17 <PovAddict> austria

15:17 <zombie67> thanks POV!

15:18 <zombie67> SETI.USA just took #1 at formula BOINC

15:19 <zombie67> I did 21k at SIMAP yesterday.

15:19 <MTughan> Haven't we heard this before?

15:19 <zombie67> heh

15:19 <zombie67> which one?

15:19 <Romulus> which one is giving you headaches, zombie67

15:20 <MTughan> Just the showing off of credits.

15:20 <MTughan> I don't think you were here when we were talking about it... Pov and Doug know what I'm talking about though. :P

15:20 <zombie67> ah

15:21 <PovAddict> yeah

15:21 <PovAddict> my 295k vs MTughan's 275k vs wdsmia's 8 million (or was it 9?) vs zombie67's 14 million

15:21 <MTughan> More like 252K here.

15:22 <PovAddict> oh right, 250, not 275

15:22 <MTughan> And the fact that I was gaining more credits than him when I had my Mac crunching.

15:22 <zombie67> I am most proud of my pie charts.

15:22 <PovAddict> more than zombie67? :)

15:22 <MTughan> But not with just my P4.

15:22 <zombie67>

15:22 <Romulus> <> (at

15:22 <MTughan> No, more than you, Pov. No one can beat zombie.

15:23 <zombie67> not true!

15:23 <PovAddict> MTughan: search for 'NEZ' :D

15:23 * PovAddict will refrain from opening links until his CD burn finishes

15:23 <zombie67> I can't even break the top 100

15:23 <wdsmia_w>

15:23 <Romulus> <> (at

15:23 <zombie67> I hit 100th on march 20th, and have been going backwards ever since

15:24 <zombie67> Formula BOINC will do that

15:25 <zombie67> heh.  I could increase my RAC by 50%-100% if I crunched what you crunch wdsmia.  ;)

15:26 <wdsmia_w> Id Like to see that since all I have been crunching lately is LHC

15:26 <zombie67> not according to your pie charts

15:27 <zombie67> LHC was 20% for last week, 29% last month

15:27 <wdsmia_w> only because the credit is so poor there

15:27 <wdsmia_w> its been 70 to 80% of the machine time

15:27 <zombie67> exactly.  The other three projects are very good credits.

15:28 <PovAddict> ugh

15:28 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

15:28 <zombie67> pink floyd

15:29 <zombie67> as my SIMAP cache drains, I will be focusing on Proteins to max my credits there before it shuts down

15:29 * wdsmia_w has a meeting to go to... bbl

15:30 <zombie67> cya

15:55 <MTughan> You know your computer's slow when it looks like you're operating it over VNC.

15:56 <zombie67> yeah

15:57 <MTughan> That's what mine looks like with XP installing in a VM.

15:57 <zombie67> how much RAM?

15:57 <zombie67> w00t!  Broke 1000 at BRaTS!

16:20 <MTughan> Missed him, but I can answer the question for everyone else. My machine has 1GB of PC-3200 RAM, and 768MB of it is allowed for the VM.

16:24 <xcam_mac> Hi!

16:25 <KathrynM> so zombie's the one hogging all the brats work

16:25 <MTughan> xcam_mac: On the Modbook?

16:25 <xcam_mac> \

16:25 <xcam_mac> yup

16:25 <MTughan> Why the backslash?

16:25 <KathrynM> talk me out of buying a macbook

16:26 <xcam_mac> it's really cool

16:26 <KathrynM> they're so cute

16:26 <MTughan> lol

16:27 <xcam_mac> STILL

16:27 <KathrynM> I get my end of contract bonus in about a month

16:27 <MTughan> Except when the motherboard breaks.

16:27 <KathrynM> true

16:27 <MTughan> This is the third motherboard I've had in my Mac.

16:27 <KathrynM> any major problems like that with the current macbooks?

16:27 <PovAddict> no, that's just MTughan's luck

16:27 <PovAddict> :)

16:28 <KathrynM> lol

16:28 <xcam_mac> the HaNDWRi1N

16:28 <MTughan> First starting panicking. Second was put in, but the service techs found the problem early, wouldn't start up with RAM in both slots.

16:28 <PovAddict> hrm

16:28 <MTughan> This is the third, CD and FireWire cut out early on, and now it won't boot.

16:28 <PovAddict> what to do...

16:28 <xcam_mac> still learn1 .g

16:28 <KathrynM> shouldn't that get you a new one?

16:28 <MTughan> I can pass the suggestion on, but I doubt it.

16:28 <PovAddict> Code, or install Ubuntu 8.04

16:29 *** yoyo[RKN] has joined #boinc

16:29 <KathrynM> wow.  three bad mobos and they won't replace the whole comp?

16:29 <MTughan> PovAddict: Install, then code on Ubuntu. xD

16:29 <xcam_mac> still learning the handwriting part....

16:29 <KathrynM> that's wrong

16:29 <MTughan> KathrynM: I don't know. It's all free though, under warranty.

16:30 <xcam_mac> 6.1.15 boinc running though...

16:30 <MTughan> So it's not my fault if they're blowing money on faulty motherboards, although it is rather annoying.

16:30 <KathrynM> I'd definitely get applecare if I bought it

16:30 <yoyo[RKN]> re

16:30 <xcam_mac> ditto on the applecare

16:31 <MTughan> Why is it that Windows can't estimate time right? 5 minutes in the installer is about 15-20 minutes real.

16:31 <KathrynM> because it's windows

16:31 <MTughan> Good enough.

16:31 <xcam_mac> bbl...

16:31 <KathrynM> I  had an install that took 39 minutes to get past the 39 minutes remaining

16:32 <KathrynM> I"ve seen it before yoyo[RKN]

16:32 <KathrynM> Couldn't tell you how to fix it tho :)

16:32 <yoyo[RKN]> :(

16:33 <KathrynM> I'm just a user, not a programmer

16:33 <KathrynM> But if I"m remembering right, it seems to bite the wrapper people the most.

16:33 <DerMeister> As far as I know this happens when the slot directory doesn't get cleaned up properly.

16:33 <yoyo[RKN]> same here, chess in a seti result

16:33 <Romulus> <> (at

16:33 <MTughan> Hold on, computer being really slow...

16:33 <yoyo[RKN]> DerMeister : I thought boinc deletes the slot directory at the end of the wu

16:34 <PovAddict> yoyo[RKN]: it can't if the app was still running

16:34 <PovAddict> like, if the wrapper failed to kill it completely

16:34 <Romulus> would be easier if I set my dive tests I had to modify the result or task that has to do?

16:35 <DerMeister> No, the directory doesn't get deleted. As far as I know all of it's contents are deleted. However, the client might fail to do so when there are still files open or applications running because the operating system may then prevent the deletion

16:35 <PovAddict> MTughan: did you see the log on ##konfabulator last night?

16:36 <MTughan> No.

16:49 <PovAddict> I saw a weird IE plugin...

16:49 <PovAddict> it handles application/xhtml+xml with the Gecko rendering engine

17:56 <CoderForLife> I'm helping a major project at w@#% in about 5 separate subteams sent me a nasty e-mail asking why I hadn't put together a meeting on yet another topic, cc'ing all of executive mgt

17:57 <CoderForLife> essentially, "F you very much"

17:57 <xcamel> mutiny can be dealt with...

17:57 <xcamel> and a valueable lesson taught...

17:57 <CoderForLife> so I called a Monday 9am meeting with people that don't stroll in until 10:30 to go over all the details

17:58 <CoderForLife> accountants and auditors - blah

17:59 <CoderForLife> any present company excluded, of course

17:59 <CoderForLife> I don't see them lifting a finger

17:59 <xcamel> good topic of the meeting

18:01 <PovIpod> letting choose KDE/GNOME on install

18:01 <PovIpod> guess not :/

18:01 <wdsmia> sounds like my last meeting

18:02 <CoderForLife> I'm good, but not omniscient, omnipotent nor omnipresent

18:03 <CoderForLife> arrgh - I hope the project turns out exactly like they're doing it - i just want to be clear of the reaper

18:03 <CoderForLife> need more beverage to drown my sorrows - brb

18:03 <wdsmia> have a meeting monday for a new interface... they want the databases to talk to each other but have no idea what data they want to pass

18:04 <CoderForLife> eggzackly

18:05 <CoderForLife> our problem is - how do we manage content and process in a Sarbanes-compliant environment?

18:05 <CoderForLife> they don't know how to begin or what they want, yet I'm supposed to provide the perfect answer

18:05 <CoderForLife> "42"

18:07 <xcamel> "69" in their case..

18:08 <wdsmia> ok its after 5pm on a friday enought talk of W@#%

23:43 * KathrynM goes to hide

23:43 <MTughan> I just use the GUI tools myself.

23:44 <MTughan> Now my XP VM is stuck on a black screen with a cursor, it seems...

23:45 <PovIpod> enough of this sh1t

23:51 <KathrynM> back to fedora

23:51 *** KathrynM has quit IRC

23:57 *** KathrynM has joined #boinc

23:57 <KathrynM> and grub didn't even get trashed

23:58 <PovIpod> mine got trashed because I was aborting the installations halfway

23:59 <PovIpod> as soon as I noticed it was installing gnome

23:59 <KathrynM> that'll do it

23:59 <KathrynM> so what's the status of your computer now?

23:59 *** PovAddict has joined #boinc

23:59 <PovAddict> booted on Windows, downloading kubuntu
