IRC logs of #boinc for Saturday, 2008-05-03

00:00 <KathrynM> so you did get back to windows

00:00 <PovAddict> with a 2nd partition containing Ubuntu 8.04 with *no* desktop environment at all

00:00 <KathrynM> oh that's fun

00:00 <PovAddict> I tried apt-get install kubuntu-desktop, and it wanted to download 200MB+ of stuff - so that's the final bit convincing me the DVD isn't about putting all desktops in one disc :)

00:01 <KathrynM> looks likeit

00:02 <KathrynM> I'm off for a while.

00:02 <KathrynM> PovAddict, you should get some sleep

00:02 * KathrynM is away: I may still exist in an alternate reality...

00:02 <PovAddict> oh don't get all maternal again

00:03 <PovAddict> MTughan: how's the VM going?

00:06 *** PovIpod has quit IRC

00:08 <MTughan> Just gonna check...

00:09 <MTughan> VMware Tools finally installed... Now I can shut the darn thing down and get back to native speed.

00:09 <PovAddict> I'll go to sleep and leave this crap downloading

00:10 <PovAddict> it should take only 30 minutes

00:10 <PovAddict> but I won't be doing yet another install attempt at 1:40 am

00:10 <MTughan> CAD should be up.

00:10 <Romulus> worst thing u cud ever decid to install linux w/o a gui . is there a "hosts" file in the bank first..

00:11 <PovAddict> o_O

00:12 <PovAddict> oh gawd

00:12 <PovAddict> white.css being changed along with totally unrelated stuff

00:12 <PovAddict> ...and even wrong:

00:24 *** ELGono has quit IRC

00:27 <MTughan> I won't go as far as to say using the VM is unbearable, but it's really damn annoying.

00:28 <MTughan> Took me about 5 minutes to open the Start Menu and click Shut Down.

00:28 <MTughan> Now it's taken me about 5 more minutes just to shut down, and it's still going.

00:29 <MTughan> There it goes...

00:29 <MTughan> And everything's fast! AMAZING!!!

14:11 <MTughan> "We would like to thank Michael Tughan for his Mac version of the Makefile that can be used to compile the application for Mac."

14:11 <quail> hehe

14:12 <zombie67> now they need to actually use it

14:12 <MTughan> Anyone with Xcode installed can do it now. Uses two scripts: one to build the BOINC libraries as Universal, and another to build the AI app.

14:12 <zombie67> cool

14:13 <MTughan> Whether they included the first script or not though, I'm not sure...

14:14 <MTughan> Yep, they did. Cool.

14:16 <MTughan> I made a script for that because I was tired of remembering the different CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS that I had to put in, so this automated it. Just svn update and ./

16:07 * quail hates our 1/4 ac block atm

16:07 <quail> oh cause we can't have the horses here

16:09 <quail> but moving to the ac block later this year be a diff story

16:09 <efc> dad got a zero turn radius mower for our lawn after he got tired of pulling a finishing mower with the tractor

16:09 <efc> piece of junk but still working

16:10 <quail> efc: horses are better they fertilize while mowing

16:11 <efc> we have those too, they take care of the other 50 acres

16:11 <efc> but then you have to cut hay for them for the winter so its a wash

16:11 <quail> my mum with the horses

16:12 <efc> If they're in a confined space they tend to eat most of it down to stub and then leave small parts (the poop parts) growing high

16:12 * quail has nothing to do with them, cause they damn uncomfortable to ride even tho I have a custom western saddle made for me

16:17 <efc> I did a little, no good at it. Mother does a lot.

16:17 <quail> efc: the appaloosa gelding I used to ride loved them

16:18 <quail> doing key hole I swear his arse hit the ground sometimes

16:19 <xcamel> was never much of a horse guy, although I do ride now and then.

16:20 <quail> he used to like barrels and key hole, basically they were fun events but he loved em

16:21 <quail> I remember at one even I done the key hole bare back

16:22 <quail> that was hard to stay on

16:24 <quail> xcamel: me like to do it again, but have to get a horse that I can trust to do it all again

17:05 <quail> efc: why?

17:05 <efc> I want to try to do some simulations of atoms and molecules

17:05 <efc> To predict, for example, the absorption spectra of arbitrary molecules (such as chlorophyll)

17:05 * quail wonders why efc envies Quail's script

17:06 <efc> oh. Because I don't think mIRC can do it.

17:06 <quail> damn why does my desktop not have access to the 2.6.25 kernel, my laptop does

17:06 <CoderForLife> the answer is either 42 or Avogadro's Number, depending on the phase of the moon

17:07 <efc> If mIRC could run that script I'd be running IRC on my cyrix just to be cool.

17:07 <quail> efc: prob not concidering I use irssi

17:08 <CoderForLife> quirky IRC

18:46 <Rookie_69> Quail lost his terminal? That's gotta hurt.

18:47 <quail> nah I killed it, cause I lost my highlight window when leaving a channel

18:47 <quail> so the fastest was to kill screen and start again :-)

18:49 <Rookie_69> ... that was when you were leaving the channel #sun after looking at it?

18:49 <Rookie_69> Lol.

18:56 *** pidus has left #boinc

19:09 <quail> hehe

19:09 <quail> direct sunlight kills that why I have not openned my blinds :-)

19:10 <quail> the darker my computer room is the happier I am

19:14 * Rookie_69 needs enough light to see which key he is jabbing at.

19:15 <quail> i got that but the sun light hurts

19:16 <quail> hence me wears very dark sunnies

19:16 <Rookie_69> I used to, but not so bad lately.

19:43 <CoderForLife> both a way of life, and a prison sentence

19:46 <Rookie_69> Yes'm...

19:47 <CoderForLife> give a person a little authority and look what happens

19:47 <KathrynM> lol

19:47 <KathrynM> what kind of stupid site won't let you have symbols in your password......

19:47 <KathrynM> why don't I just make my password "password"

19:48 * CoderForLife looks at the ceiling

19:48 <PovAddict> the most common password used to be "password"

19:48 <PovAddict> now it's "password1" - who says people haven't learned about security?

19:48 <KathrynM> lol

19:48 <CoderForLife> um, all our company extranet sites...

19:48 <KathrynM> I saw a thing about the UK where "monkey" is an extremely popular password.

19:48 <Rookie_69> ...  and user name USER?\

19:48 <CoderForLife> sa/sa

19:49 * PovAddict 's gmail password is 16 apparently-random letters :)

19:49 <CoderForLife> the key that unlocks Oracle

19:49 <PovAddict> I once typed it while somebody was behind me... he said "whoa, some security?" when he saw the number of asterisks on screen

19:49 <KathrynM> holy sh1t.  I just jumped through a zillion hoops to find out my membership doesn't expire for a year.  so why the heck did they send me a renewal notice in the first place

19:50 <CoderForLife> money?

19:50 <Romulus> hmm... money is good, CoderForLife

19:50 <CoderForLife> yes, especially if it's Other People's Money (OPM)

19:50 <KathrynM> lol  I'm good at spending OPM

19:51 <CoderForLife> our gov't thrives on it

19:53 <PovAddict> or "buy me" - although that might be just part of the female teenager instinct

20:20 <KathrynM> you've never frozen cheese?

20:20 <Ageless93> can't be Dutch cheese then. when you put that in the freezer it comes out as a rubbery yuck

20:20 <KathrynM> Cheddar cheese.  Yummy

20:20 <Ageless93> I have frozen all kinds of things, but never cheese, no

20:21 <KathrynM> I have a block of chddar and a block of colby/jack

20:21 <KathrynM> 2 pounds each

20:21 * PovAddict notes burncdcc hanged as usual

20:21 <Ageless93> so two huge blocks, huh? seems you did it wrong

20:22 <Ageless93> To freeze hard cheese such as cheddar, Colby, Edam, Gouda, Swiss or brick, cut and wrap in small pieces of less than one pound, or grate and freeze in freezer-weight bags or rigid freezer containers. Moisture may cause a mottled color. Before using, thaw it the refrigerator.

20:22 <PovAddict> &dict thaw

20:22 <KathrynM> I didn't have any zipper bags when it was delivered.  I'll go to the store today and get some and then cut it up.  That's what I did the last time and it worked fine :)

20:29 <KathrynM> milk for that?

20:30 <Ageless93> yes. that helps ease the acid buildup

21:05 <Ageless93> by the way, i did warn him over the other attempts that are popping up lately.

21:06 <Ageless93> dunno if you heard of them, but a group of hackers is trying to gain access to government and business computers here in Europe.

21:06 <Ageless93> attempts have been made on computers from England, germany, The Netherlands and Belgium

21:06 <Didactylos> More than usual?

21:07 <Ageless93> it's done with emails that have an invisible code added to them that breaks in and sends back information about the computers, network, passwords etc.

21:07 <Ageless93> and it's so far being traced back to China.

21:07 <Ageless93> all the time only China as end station...

21:07 <Didactylos> Uh...

21:07 <Didactylos> You mean a worm?

21:08 <Ageless93> as far as I understand the news messages around here, it's no attachment, but something underneath the text.

21:09 <Didactylos> ??!

21:09 <Ageless93> the code that does it isn't visible in the email and it's not attached as an attachment.

21:10 <Ageless93> no executable to start, no video to watch, nothing. Just seemingly text in the email.

21:12 <Didactylos> Got a link?

21:20 <Didactylos> It just says "hidden software". So, it's almost certainly a normal worm or trojan, since if it was something interesting, it would be all over the tech sites - and I haven't seen anything.

21:28 <Ageless93> you probably had it in your hands when you went to pick something out of the fridge, and temporarily put it down in there as you needed more hands to hold food.

21:28 <CoderForLife> thx and gn

21:28 <Ageless93> have had things like that happen, put food on top of friedge, totally forget about it until I pass by again.

21:31 <Didactylos> One of the great things about living alone is you can put something down, and then when you want it again weeks later - it's right there!

21:37 <KathrynM> very true Didactylos

21:38 <Didactylos> If only our memories could keep up.

21:38 <KathrynM> that too

21:39 * KathrynM wonders if she should make her bed when she really just wants to crawl back in it.

21:40 <Ageless93> that's what those new glasses are for. They remember where you left  things. making a photo of wherever you look at every 2 seconds or so, storing it on a large hdd, where software will list everything and makes it possible for you to name things.

21:40 <Ageless93> then whenever you have lost your keys, just ask the software and up pops a picture of whee you left them last time around... if the lepricorns didn't move them.
