IRC logs of #boinc for Saturday, 2008-05-10

00:04 <PovAddict> uptime 3 days, 12:05

00:04 <PovAddict> that's 3d 12h without Windows

00:04 <KathrynM> :D

00:05 <PovAddict> I have a 2x2 desktop

00:07 <PovAddict> <- caught it halfway moving from a viewport to another

00:07 <Romulus> Title: snapshot12.png (at

00:07 <PovAddict>  <- Expo plugin showing the whole virtual desktop zommed out

00:07 <Romulus> Title: snapshot13.png (at

00:08 <KathrynM> nice

00:09 <PovAddict> while in Expo, I can move windows between viewports

00:09 <PovAddict> I find this more useful than the desktop cube

00:10 <KathrynM> I've not played a whole lot with that sort of stuff.

00:10 <KathrynM> I have two desktops and I switch with the little button in the panel.

00:10 <PovAddict> of course, it would be better if I had a screen big enough that I can use it on a 2560 x 2048 resolution :)

00:10 <KathrynM> :D

00:10 <PovAddict> no need for scrolling between viewports: the whole thing is visible

00:11 <PovAddict> btw, multiple desktops with a switcher has existing for a LONG time

00:12 * PovAddict installs vtwm

00:15 * PovAddict closes KDE desktop

00:19 * PovAddict gets back to compiz after taking screenshots

00:19 <efc> this is a cool BSG

00:20 <PovAddict> aww I saved only one of them

00:20 <PovAddict> just noticed what I did wrong with the "take screenshot" thing

00:20 <PovAddict>

00:20 <Romulus> Title: snapshot14.png (at

00:21 <PovAddict> top left corner: list of open windows

00:21 <PovAddict> bottom right corner: the virtual desktop

00:21 <PovAddict> I can drag windows from the virtual desktop preview, and drag the visible area

00:22 <PovAddict> and... KDE panel :P

00:22 <PovAddict> an old-skool window manager doesn't really look old-skool with KDE apps running on it

00:22 * PovAddict looks at efc

00:23 <efc> waaaa

00:24 <PovAddict> I consider vtwm more usable than twm, even without the virtual desktop feature

00:24 <PovAddict> not sure why, they're quite similar actually :P

00:29 <bryanUC> question if anyone has a second....  - how does 1 second of wall time equal out to > 269256.814129 seconds of CPU time?

00:29 <Romulus> Title: general pastebin - Anonymous - post number 1013485 (at

00:30 <PovAddict> was it starting from scratch? o.0

00:31 <bryanUC> yes

00:31 <bryanUC> brand new WU downloads

00:31 <bryanUC> (trying out a new app version before I release it to the masses)

00:33 <PovAddict> looks like the new app version is broke then :P

00:33 <bryanUC> but I don't get why

00:33 <bryanUC> lol

00:34 <PovAddict> well, the app reports its own CPU time

00:35 <PovAddict> ugh

00:35 <PovAddict> BOINC server seems to have run out of disk space

00:36 <PovAddict> can you repro it with further WUs or was it just those two?

00:36 <PovAddict> enable [app_msg_receive] debug flag

00:37 <PovAddict>

00:37 <Romulus> <> (at

00:39 <bryanUC> I can reproduce it, yes

00:40 <bryanUC> it is related to remove boinc_wu_cpu_time(oldTime); from my wrapper

00:40 <bryanUC> which I found is not in the latest wrapper code, and seemed to always make a restarted WU's cpu time start @ 0

04:50 <CoderForLife> Sometimes when I press Tab, Miranda goes bye-bye-kaboom

04:50 <KathrynM> ouch

04:50 <KathrynM> suicidal irc

04:51 <CoderForLife> yup, K-a-tab-(heavy disk access)-blammo

04:51 <KathrynM> or you could just blame it on me

04:51 <CoderForLife> P-o-tab also works

04:51 <KathrynM> lol

04:51 * KathrynM listens to stomach growling

04:52 <KathrynM> That means I'd need to shower and go to the store to get food.

04:52 <CoderForLife> I'll be running my errands in a bit

04:53 <KathrynM> I also need to buy blank DVDs so I can reburn Fedora 8.

04:53 <KathrynM> :/

04:53 <CoderForLife> a praiseworthy endeavor

04:54 <KathrynM> I was going to via yum, but after reading all the warnings on the Fedora site not to do so, I decided to go the DVD route :)

04:55 <CoderForLife> a version upgrade via yum?

04:55 <KathrynM> aparetly it can be done

04:55 <CoderForLife> not I

04:55 <KathrynM> yeah, I"m not feeling very adventurous.

04:55 <CoderForLife> I'll do either DVD or HTTP

04:56 <Romulus> I guess I missed it

04:57 * CoderForLife listens to stomach growling

04:57 <CoderForLife> it's saying "b-r-r-r-r-r-eakfast"

04:58 <CoderForLife> ah

04:58 * CoderForLife reads logwatch report e-mail

04:59 <KathrynM> go get breakfast

04:59 <KathrynM> I'm finishing a blog entry then I'm outta here

04:59 <CoderForLife> plink

05:01 <KathrynM> ouch

05:01 <CoderForLife> 40% disk in use after I dropped a couple of gig on it last night

05:01 <CoderForLife> ouch to the spammers

05:01 <KathrynM> In a sort of geeky way, I enjoy reading the logwatch emails.

05:01 <CoderForLife> I read mine each day

05:01 <KathrynM> As do I.

05:02 <CoderForLife> ok - time to eat

10:36 <Ageless93> something on Isaac is. Now I can't even PM anymore on BOINC Dev. I get PMs in, but I can't answer or even delete old ones. ;)

10:38 <Ageless93> and the program here is telling me again that I am not in a channel... oh well. Must imagine then that TM could read my line and answer.

11:03 <Ageless93> make him laugh and wonder

11:04 <KathrynM> "Though I wrote and wrote, I could get the power to grip, I got better and I caught up with other kids."

11:04 <KathrynM> what the hell is the middle part?

11:05 <Ageless93> grip on Engrish

11:06 <KathrynM> lol

11:07 <Ageless93> my Engrish very very good, I learn writing from miss Sue.

14:34 <Soul_keeper> i gotta replace the timing chain on my truck

14:35 <Rookie_69> before it wears a hole in the cover?

14:36 <Soul_keeper> think it already did

14:36 <Soul_keeper> supposed to replace every 100k miles, my truck has 190k and don't think it was ever replaced

14:36 <Soul_keeper> leaking oil now

14:39 <Rookie_69> Hopefully oil pan was my only oil leak... Too wet to tell.

14:40 <Rookie_69> The van smoked on the highway because oil was blowing back on the crossover pipe.

14:40 <Soul_keeper> this doesn't make me happy

14:41 <Soul_keeper> i gotta smog the truck

14:41 <Soul_keeper> i almost just want to junk the whole truck

14:45 <Rookie_69> A bus pass is cheaper than owning a car... and tax deductible here, but whoever makes up the schedules obviously never takes the bus.

14:46 <Soul_keeper> yeah but i need a truck to haul around my tools and stuff for work

14:46 <Soul_keeper> might hafta drop 1k into it here tho

14:46 <Romulus> xcamel: its wine - not because it seems not. I've mailed the BOINC code

16:43 <CoderForLife> I'm not really sure - KathrynM uses it when she's commenting on life there

16:43 <CoderForLife> I always thought it was something like "wow"

16:43 <xcamel> no - meh is right

16:43 <CoderForLife> didn't run into any "tough tree roots", xcamel?

16:44 <CoderForLife> the black ones with the multistanded colored insides are the toughest

16:44 <xcamel> if that front holds together, you're going to get some thunder bumpers tonight...

16:45 <CoderForLife> ah - thx - I hadn't looked yet

16:45 <xcamel> coming out of MO now...

16:45 * CoderForLife fires up the ACME Weather Prognosticator

16:46 <Soul_keeper> hmmm i need a chain wrench and a micrometer

16:46 <CoderForLife> my preferred tools are a sledge hammer and a cutting torch

16:47 <Soul_keeper> if i go that route i better be prepared to buy a new truck ..

16:49 *** KathrynM has quit IRC

16:50 <CoderForLife> early din-din - Skyline chili - bbl

16:50 * CoderForLife walks away, thinking about the MO front

16:51 <quail> morning all

16:55 <Rookie_69> Morning already?

16:56 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

16:56 <quail> yeah it almost 0630 hours here

16:56 <Rookie_69> Almost 1800 here atm.

16:57 <quail> :-)

16:57 <Rookie_69> We must be almost half a world apart :-)

16:57 * quail up early this sunday morning cause it mothers day here to day and I have to get the roast etc done

16:58 <Rookie_69> Hmm... Mom is almost half a country away so I only have to cook for me.

16:59 <Rookie_69> Well, 1/3 of the country...

16:59 <quail> oh

17:00 <Rookie_69> 1200 miles or so...

17:00 *** d00m1001 has joined #boinc

17:01 <Soul_keeper> i want a new engine ...

17:01 <Rookie_69> 502 crate engine ...

17:01 <quail> huh?

17:02 <Rookie_69> Some of us are playing mechanic today.

17:02 <quail> oh

17:03 <Rookie_69> I replaced a rusted-out oil pan this aftermorning...

17:05 <Soul_keeper> yeah kragen carries crate engines, not sure if i wanna go that route tho

17:05 <Rookie_69> I almost succeeded too.

17:05 <Soul_keeper> looks like a total rebuild would be about the same price as dropping in a whole new engine

17:06 <Rookie_69> Usually.

17:08 <Soul_keeper>

17:08 <Romulus> Title: Sheet1 (at

17:08 <Soul_keeper> something has definately changed around febuary

17:08 <Soul_keeper> gas milage has dropped considerably

17:08 <Rookie_69> Last total rebuild I did was a 350 that cost about $1100 so I saved a couple of $$

17:09 <Soul_keeper> i was told the krate engines will run about 2000

17:09 <Romulus> runs speedtest before cable guy has left over pork.

17:10 <PovAddict> lol

17:10 <Soul_keeper> problem is i want a new transmission, and new truck bed as well ....   might as well get a new truck

17:10 <Soul_keeper> there is a truck just like mine, but in better shape for sale down the street, think i'll go have a look at it

17:11 <Rookie_69> This van has a TH400 tranny... almost bulletproof.

17:13 <Rookie_69> Old van was 3 speed saginaw, manual drum brakes and armstrong steering... This one is like a Caddy.

17:14 <Rookie_69> ... almost.

17:21 <Rookie_69> I just wish I could drive past the occasional gas station.

17:22 <Soul_keeper> :)

17:23 <Soul_keeper> i want a 5 speed tranny instead of 4 speed, also the clutch/bearings are worn

17:23 <Soul_keeper> bbl

17:23 <Rookie_69> K.

17:23 <Romulus> do you need to start it (I'm not sure yet..

17:42 <xcamel> 'lo again

17:46 <xcamel> blade angle control now fixed...

17:46 <CoderForLife> good work

17:47 * CoderForLife fixes a buffer overflow problem caused by a spreadsheet with 138 tabs, each with a different persons last comma first name - more than the 2048 byte buffer he had allocated

17:49 <CoderForLife> yeah, C*de happens

17:49 <xcamel> that too...

17:51 <quail> howdy Jay & Don

17:52 <CoderForLife> hi Dale

17:52 <quail> CoderForLife: how are things?

17:52 <CoderForLife> fair (and maybe a bit unfair) - how about you?

17:53 <quail> fair to muddling

17:54 * quail has to cook a roast today as it is mothers day

17:54 <BadBarbarian> Nice with all the triming i hope for dear old mum

17:55 <quail> so I have a leg of pork that I have put bits of garlic and chilli into, I still got to salt the pork skin yet

17:55 <xcamel> 'lo Q

17:56 <quail> CoderForLife: yeah I got apple sauce for the pork and heaps of veg to roast aswell

17:56 <quail> xcamel: how are things Jay?

17:58 <xcamel> spicy wing pizza...

17:59 <xcamel> otherwise... going well enough

17:59 <quail> mmm wing dings

18:13 <CoderForLife> very amazing

18:14 <Rookie_69> To heck with it...All seven remaining boxes are now heating up my chilly apartment.

18:18 <CoderForLife> Al Gore is watching you, Rookie_69

18:19 <Rookie_69> Gore is what seeps out of a long-dead animal.

18:19 <MTughan> Yes, but maybe he's contributing to finding more efficient ways to generate electricity.

18:20 <Rookie_69> Build a DysanSphere out of solar panels.

18:22 <CoderForLife> that'll be a cheap solution...

18:23 <efc> easier to attack a civilization that already has a DysanSphere and take it!

18:24 <Romulus> How's life in camel land?

18:26 <Rookie_69> If we had the technology to build or usurp said DysanSphere, presumably we wouldn't need one.

18:26 <CoderForLife> lol  I love your solution efc

18:27 <Rookie_69> No matter... Me needs a nap.

18:27 <Rookie_69> NN.

18:27 *** Rookie_69 has quit IRC

18:28 <CoderForLife> first we'll need to steal a Bussard ramjet to mount the attack

18:33 <efc> I'm still interested in photochemical energy but not getting anywhere with it

18:34 <CoderForLife> if you've seen the movie K-PAX, you'll know that the secret is in light itself

18:35 <CoderForLife> I'm off to watch last night's BSG - was too tired to watch it live

18:35 <CoderForLife> ttfn

18:35 <BadBarbarian> al gore's private jet adds more greenhouse gases anything else

18:38 <efc> But, they plant trees in the desert that are doomed to die immediately to make up for it

18:41 <PovAddict> or in snowy areas

18:41 <PovAddict> which means less snow reflecting the sun, which means *more* warming

18:41 <efc> Or they plant 3 trees while clearing out a forest to build a huge plant

18:41 <efc> or subdivision (I hate subdivisions)

18:42 <PovAddict> I'm trying to get a working Flash for Linux 64-bit

18:42 <PovAddict> looks like one hell of a task...

18:42 <efc> I think there was an open source clone? no official

18:43 <PovAddict> well, installing the free Flash implementations isn't super-trivial either, and if I do that I'm not even guaranteed compatibility with websites

18:44 <efc> On the other hand, flash s u x so what could you be missing..

18:44 <PovAddict> me? nothing

18:44 <PovAddict> but my mom always checks her email from this computer

18:44 <PovAddict> it's bad enough that I put Linux on it, missing Flash just makes things worse

18:45 <PovAddict> I just installed mozilla-plugin-gnash

18:45 <PovAddict> gave an installation error

18:46 <PovAddict> update-alternatives: unable to make /usr/lib/xulrunner-addons/plugins/ a symlink to /etc/alternatives/xulrunner-addons-flashplugin: No such file or directory

19:54 <Ageless93> this person has Windows XP, but BOINC shows it as Windows 98

19:55 <Ageless93> even the latest BOINC he installed only 2 days ago gives communications as Windows 98.

19:55 <Ageless93> would compatibility mode install do such a thing?

19:56 <PovAddict> definitely not; installing 6.x in "compatibility mode" has nothing to do with the Windows compatibility with older Windowses

19:56 <Romulus> Okay, now you're just doing this stop and start again. That an idea?

19:57 <Ageless93> I meant a Windows 98 compatibility mode install, not the BOINC compatibility mode install

19:57 <PovAddict> oh - maybe

19:57 <Ageless93> so if I were to install BOINC in Win98 CM, would it show my OS as Windows 98, or as the OS I installed it under?

19:58 * KathrynM_ is back (gone 03:26:11)

19:58 <PovAddict> probably as win98

20:29 <Ageless93> sorry.

20:29 <PovAddict> hmm testing something - I might logout

20:33 <KathrynM> I haven't even started that one yet.

20:33 <KathrynM> I'll have to find out exactly what that means.

20:33 <PovAddict> BOINC Manager on KDE should really do the same

20:33 <PovAddict> close button minimizing to tray - but letting the user know that first (and it should notify on Windows too)

20:33 <Ageless93> grape flowers perhaps?

20:33 <PovAddict> clicking tray icon restoring/minimizing

20:34 <Ageless93> if grapes have flowers..

20:34 <KathrynM> I have no freaking clue.

20:46 <KathrynM> proper punctuation?  You gotta be kidding me.

21:57 <PovAddict> alternate reality... like those engrish things?

22:12 <Keith_Stanley> OK...time to say G'night

22:22 <nickuwo> do you need to use a pointer to keep track of the end of an array in C++?

22:22 <nickuwo> in other words, is there some analogous method to java's array[].length?

22:23 <PovAddict> arrays have no length in C

22:23 <PovAddict> the language has no idea how big the array is

22:23 <nickuwo> hmm

22:23 <PovAddict> if you need that, use a std::vector instead

22:23 <nickuwo> so I should just increment some int evertime I add to it

22:24 <nickuwo> ahh vector

22:24 <Romulus> well.. how you get the 'attach to project' wizard?

22:24 <PovAddict> you can't "add" to an array

22:24 <nickuwo> well, you know what I mean

22:24 <PovAddict> if you create an array of 10 elements, you corrupt random memory when writing to the 11th

22:25 <nickuwo> ok

22:30 <nickuwo> mmm... two dimensional vectors
