01:25 <Soul_keeper> heh yeah, i think mine weighs 60lbs
01:25 <Soul_keeper> 1600x1200 with great display quality makes it worth it tho
01:25 <BadBarbarian> mine was a older sony i think it weighted at least 100 lbs

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 <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 <zombie67> I can't even break the top 100
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.

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...

16:32 <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 http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/result.php?resultid=855218
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?

16:49 <PovAddict> it handles application/xhtml+xml with the Gecko rendering engine
16:50 <PovAddict> it's like IEtab, but backwards!
16:50 <PovAddict> use Firefox engine in the IE application

17:52 <CoderForLife> hello Doug
17:52 <CoderForLife> today was one of *those* w@#% days
17:52 <wdsmia> yup
17:53 <CoderForLife> no good deed goes unpunished
17:54 <wdsmia> They called another hr long meeting 15 min before my quiting time
17:55 <wdsmia> wonder if I will remember the details come Monday morning
17:55 *** siofwolves has joined #boinc
17:56 <xcamel> interesting, if not a bit wierd
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
17:59 *** nickuwo has joined #boinc
18:00 <PovIpod> looks like installing kubuntu from ubuntu DVD is a pain
18:00 <PovIpod> I really thought the DVD had all...
18:00 <xcamel> might be..
18:00 <CoderForLife> no - they want to know why I haven't solved the problem that they haven't specified
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@#%
18:08 <Romulus> Title: APOD: 2008 May 2 - Shaping NGC 6188 (at antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov)
