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 <Romulus> Title: snapshot12.png (at imagebin.ca)
00:07 <Romulus> Title: snapshot13.png (at imagebin.ca)
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 <Romulus> Title: snapshot14.png (at imagebin.ca)
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 <Romulus> Title: general pastebin - Anonymous - post number 1013485 (at www.pastebin.ca)
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
00:39 <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

04:52 <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

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 <Romulus> Title: Sheet1 (at sterlingdesktops.com)
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
17:59 <xcamel> more or less..
18:00 * quail loves wing dings, but they getting harder harder to get here :-/
18:04 <xcamel> video of the "Big Dog" is better... pretty amazing tech...
18:06 <Romulus> Title: YouTube - Boston Dynamics Big Dog (new video March 2008) (at youtube.com)
18:13 <CoderForLife> very amazing
18:14 <CoderForLife> does a better job than I could do on ice
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/flashplugin-alternative.so.dpkg-tmp a symlink to /etc/alternatives/xulrunner-addons-flashplugin: No such file or directory
18:46 <PovAddict> uh huh
18:46 <PovAddict> and #ubuntu is a mess

19:28 <Soul_keeper> ubuntu is like a subprime loan: designed to make it easier/better for the noob, but in the end everyone gets screwed
19:39 <xcamel> lol
19:42 <PovAddict> I got it installed... sort of
19:43 <PovAddict> yup now I go to youtube.com in Firefox and Firefox hangs completely for ten seconds - guess it works
19:54 <Ageless93[Away]> can anyone look at http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/forum_thread.php?id=6658 please
19:54 *** Ageless93[Away] is now known as Ageless93
19:54 * Ageless93 is no longer away : Gone for 8 hours 43 minutes 13 seconds
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
19:58 *** KathrynM_ is now known as KathrynM
19:58 <PovAddict> actually, just running it...
19:58 <PovAddict> set boinc.exe to compatibility mode and it should do that...
20:03 <Ageless93> thx
20:27 <Ageless93> you'd think they check the free space on the servers once in a while at Berkeley.
20:28 <PovAddict> indeed
20:28 <PovAddict> you beat me to it on posting it @ dev forums
20:28 <PovAddict> by a minute :)
20:29 <Ageless93> sorry.
20:29 <PovAddict> hmm testing something - I might logout
20:29 <Ageless93> I don't dare... wasn't there that problem a while ago that if you did you couldn't log back in?
20:30 <PovAddict> I meant in IRC
20:30 <PovAddict> looks like the Close button minimizes to tray - just what I wanted
20:30 <PovAddict> (if it didn't... I would have quit IRC)
20:31 <Ageless93> got a minimize to tray button here
20:31 <Ageless93> can even set auto-away on minimize to tray
20:31 <PovAddict> IceChat? what OS?
20:31 <KathrynM> I just click the icon in the tray and it minimizes :)
20:31 <Ageless93> windows
20:31 <Ageless93> what else?
20:31 <Romulus> what else is red hat based besides fedora, Ageless93
20:31 <KathrynM> lol
20:31 <Ageless93> strawberries, Rom
20:32 <KathrynM> That was one of Rommie's best.
20:32 <Ageless93> it had me typeless for a moment there
20:32 <KathrynM> lol
20:33 <KathrynM> with trepidation, Kathryn opens up the speech she was translating last night.
20:33 <Ageless93> please, no more rape flowers
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.
20:34 * KathrynM sighs
20:34 <KathrynM> Now I am not so fast. When I was younger, I was a slow boy.
20:35 <Ageless93> and now? a girl?
20:35 <KathrynM> lol
20:36 <PovAddict> rape flowers? o.O
20:36 <KathrynM> check your email Jord
20:36 * PovAddict missed something but doesn't want to know anyway
20:36 <KathrynM> Sorry, I forgot to strip the attachment

20:39 <KathrynM> It's just for your amusement.

20:43 <KathrynM> I'm always creating hell.
20:43 <Keith_Stanley> Nah..the old trout Miggins.
20:43 <Romulus> click on the order of 100,000 spreadsheets
20:44 <Keith_Stanley> What, you Kath...
20:44 <Ageless93> if it is where I think it is then good for her. Not reading there anymore.
20:44 * KathrynM sighs
20:44 <KathrynM> In addition, I could read fluently and comprehended well English stories after keeping on reading Internet site story and various books.
20:44 * KathrynM bangs head on desk
20:45 <Ageless93> I'm stuck in the first sentence already, kat
20:45 <KathrynM> lol
20:45 <KathrynM> It's truly painful.
20:45 <Ageless93> question mark comma... right
20:46 <KathrynM> proper punctuation? You gotta be kidding me.
20:46 <Keith_Stanley> English is my second language...
20:46 <Keith_Stanley> Talking Cobblers is my first.
20:46 <KathrynM> I'd like a peach cobbler please.
20:46 <Ageless93> At that time, mass communication and many people said
20:46 <Ageless93> " Ulsan is a pollutional city and they have many
20:46 <Ageless93> mosquito because of it" so my family also crossed a
20:46 <Ageless93> bridge before we comes to it.
20:46 <KathrynM> My dream is to be a science and then I'll try to get knowledge and information one by one.
20:47 <KathrynM> Oh you're doing that one ;)
20:47 <KathrynM> I'm still struggling through Joe's.
20:47 <PovAddict> "to be a science" LOL
20:47 <KathrynM> LOL
20:48 <KathrynM> Joeology
20:48 <Ageless93> and Some people were eating some food
20:48 <Ageless93> in groups.
20:48 <Ageless93> is that forbidden these days then?
20:48 <Ageless93> no group eating allowed!

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
