00:30 <d00m1001> Is anyone here
00:31 <MTughan> Yep.
00:31 <d00m1001> 1st question.
00:31 <d00m1001> Anyone know how long LHC has been delayed?
00:31 <MTughan> What do you mean by delayed?
00:31 <PovAddict> MTughan: the collider, not the BOINC project
00:31 <MTughan> Ah...
00:31 <PovAddict> building the collider has already been delayed again and again...
00:32 <MTughan> I know.
00:32 <PovAddict> LHC Home Premium coming soon?
00:32 <PovAddict> (Vista)
00:33 <d00m1001> Yeah
00:33 <d00m1001> not the BOINC project
00:33 <d00m1001> But, apparently
00:33 <d00m1001> The collider was supposed to be activated yesterday?
00:33 <d00m1001> Thanks to some in-accurate countdown
00:33 <MTughan> Latest in Wikipedia still says May 2008.
00:34 <PovAddict> "The first beams are due for injection mid June 2008 with the first collisions planned to take place 2 months later."
00:34 <d00m1001> Yeah but, they haven't even turned it on yet :(
00:35 <d00m1001> I want an apocolypse NOW!
00:35 <PovAddict> lol
00:36 <MTughan> PovAddict: Where'd you find that?

12:54 <PovAddict> Starfury^: too bad you can't buy either with 300k BOINC credits
12:55 <Starfury^> lol
12:55 <CoderForLife> what's the BOINC credits to USD exchange rate?
12:55 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: the question is who is willing to do such exchange...
12:56 <PovAddict> BOINC credits to USD, I believe 0.00
12:56 <CoderForLife> Spit once gave me 50,000 credits for free
12:56 <PovAddict> USD to BOINC credits, depends on the kind of hardware you buy
12:56 <CoderForLife> lol
12:56 <PovAddict> and the price of electricity in your area (which varies a *lot* worldwide)
12:57 <PovAddict> so... can't tell for sure

13:04 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: http://boincstats.com/search/result.php?name=cellutions
13:04 <PovAddict> you show as four users
13:07 <CoderForLife> looking
13:08 <CoderForLife> I was feeling a bit fractured
13:08 <PovAddict> lol
13:08 <CoderForLife> how can I pull myself together?
13:08 <PovAddict> looks like one of those users is on Einstein@Home
13:08 <PovAddict> another on Predictor
13:08 <PovAddict> another on Pirates
13:09 <PovAddict> and the other in all the rest
13:09 <CoderForLife> are they different e-mail addresses?
13:09 <CoderForLife> is that the diff?
13:09 <PovAddict> they might be... but that's not the only reason why it may split
13:09 <Romulus> crap I think I'll have work of 15 of the complete list :P
13:10 <PovAddict> if addresses are the same, having Einstein and one of "the rest" projects attached in the same computer would pull them together
13:11 <CoderForLife> I'll try setting the e-mail addresses
13:11 <PovAddict> just go to "your account" in both and compare addresses
13:13 <CoderForLife> I'll use my account key, since I'm unsure of the address
13:14 <CoderForLife> yup Eistein has a unique e-mail address
13:15 <PovAddict> different from the rest?

14:33 <jackygrahamez> Anyone know why I cannot ssh into the Debian image?
14:34 <jackygrahamez> Its on the VMWare
14:34 <jackygrahamez> I had ssh into a centos running on through VMWare on the same machine using NAT
14:36 <jackygrahamez> Furthermore, I cannot ssh into localhost on this image
14:36 <CoderForLife> I'll ask my stupid question again - does VMWare show it running?
14:36 <jackygrahamez> Port 22 connection refused
14:37 <CoderForLife> then - not knowing Debian - does it allow ssh connections by defautl?
14:37 <CoderForLife> er default
14:38 <jackygrahamez> not sure, I just thought someone here might have experience with this image I downloaded from here http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/VirtualMachines
14:38 <yoyo[RKN]> I used it as startup
14:38 <yoyo[RKN]> but never ssh'ed into it
14:39 <jackygrahamez> Where does one normally go to enable ports then?
14:39 <Romulus> I wonder if he was deciding is you
14:41 <jackygrahamez> I was just having trouble copying files to it
15:00 <jackygrahamez> I found a work around
15:00 <jackygrahamez> But I like to use another ssh client to connect to my server rather than just use VMWare
15:01 <jackygrahamez> Easier to copy and paste
15:10 <PovAddict> maybe there is no ssh
15:10 <PovAddict> so you need to install sshd
15:11 <jackygrahamez> ok I just assumed it would be there if I could ssh out
15:11 <PovAddict> definitely not :)
15:12 <PovAddict> just because you have a ssh client doesn't mean you also have a server you can connect to
15:12 <PovAddict> (just because you install BOINC client doesn't mean you suddenly host a project)
15:12 <PovAddict> it's a good idea for ssh server *not* to be installed by default
15:13 <PovAddict> $10 to whoever figures out what the *hell* CLIENT_STATE::work_fetch_no_new_work is for (in the core client code)
15:33 <CoderForLife> I think I've done what I need to do to get my accounts glued together, PovAddict

18:32 <Tank_Master> but 100f?
18:32 <Tank_Master> old all-time record was 88f
18:32 <Soul_keeper> i'm in the valley so probably 100 here too
18:33 <Soul_keeper> gets hotter in the valleys for some reason
18:33 <xcamel> less air boving

18:34 <Soul_keeper> got me a dark tan yesterday ....
18:34 <Tank_Master> I went to the beach yesterday
18:34 <Soul_keeper> i can almost blend in with the mexicans now
18:34 <Tank_Master> n got burned :P
18:34 <CoderForLife> you mean less bovine air, xcamel
18:35 <Soul_keeper> i was only in direct sun for 8hrs, would probably take 10-12hrs to give me a sun burn

18:52 <TheGasGiant> woohoo....I'm honoured (so I thought I'd drop by)
18:52 <CoderForLife> did I ring the bell?

18:53 <TheGasGiant> txs S_k
18:53 <TheGasGiant> just a short drop in
18:53 <TheGasGiant> have to go look at new cars soon
18:53 <CoderForLife> don't be such a stranger
18:53 <Romulus> I am no longer away : Gone for 10 days
18:53 <CoderForLife> speaking of money - do anything with the house yet?
18:54 <TheGasGiant> lol...yeah...got a rough quote from someone
18:54 <TheGasGiant> and we fell off our chair when we heard how much
18:54 <CoderForLife> rough as in estimate, or in impact?
18:54 <Soul_keeper> it's a buyer's market imo
18:54 <CoderForLife> ah impact
18:54 <TheGasGiant> lol...not in Oz
18:55 <Soul_keeper> ahhh
18:55 <wdsmia> *lo Paul
18:55 <CoderForLife> you could only afford one chair to sit in together?
18:55 <Soul_keeper> i hang out in an irc channel full of aussies if you wanna see if you know any ...
18:55 <TheGasGiant> $400k just to build a 5.6m wide by 25m long house
18:55 <TheGasGiant> heya Doug :)
18:55 <CoderForLife> sounds more like a Hollywood set than a house
18:55 <Soul_keeper> heh
18:56 <Soul_keeper> the aussies are flush
18:56 <TheGasGiant> that was the plan...now we're considering paln B
18:56 <CoderForLife> lol
18:56 <Soul_keeper> no government debt, so much surplus they don't even know what to do with it
18:56 <CoderForLife> "pain B"
18:56 <Soul_keeper> the polar opposite of the US
18:56 <TheGasGiant> yeah...but then in my 'new' job it shouldn't be too much of a problem
18:56 <CoderForLife> when the aussies flush, it goes clockwise
18:57 <CoderForLife> ah ah - do tell
18:57 <CoderForLife> plant manager??

18:57 <TheGasGiant> starting Jun 2.....Engineering Manager at a small engineering consulting firm
18:57 <CoderForLife> you leaving Aire?
18:57 <TheGasGiant> yup
18:57 <CoderForLife> wow
18:58 <Soul_keeper> lol, i talk to this aussie woman online whose son needs a job ...
18:58 <CoderForLife> did that shock them?
18:58 <TheGasGiant> it's all about the $$$$
18:58 <TheGasGiant> a little
18:58 <CoderForLife> what branch of engineering - chemical?
18:59 <TheGasGiant> I'm planning to get this car in my 'package' -> http://www.ford.com.au/servlet/ContentServer?cid=1178838383003&pagename=FOA%2FDFYPage%2FDefault1024&c=DFYPage

19:00 <TheGasGiant> too true ace
19:01 <Rookie_69> Now that you're back for the winter, I'll be gone for the summer?
19:01 <TheGasGiant> I must say, i'm pretty happy about it (the new job)
19:01 <Rookie_69> New job?
19:02 <TheGasGiant> ahh....for once it's raining here

19:02 <xcamel> 'lo Glenn, SK
19:02 <Rookie_69> Hi, Jay.
19:02 <Romulus> I asked because we have a dramatic impact on the spot electricity price was hitting $10,000/MWh during the run time Vs. instance size.
19:02 <TheGasGiant> nope...start the new job June 2...hi Jay
19:03 <TheGasGiant> I need to get the company to finish their website
19:03 <CoderForLife> you're not a company is you don't have a web site anymore
19:04 <CoderForLife> if*
19:04 <Soul_keeper> that kid that needs a job is apparently a programmer ...
19:04 <Romulus> Title: GLP: Gas Liquid Processing - Home (at www.glp.com.au)
19:05 <CoderForLife> are they in Melbourne?
19:05 <TheGasGiant> yep....35 minute drive vs the 15 to 20 I had before
19:05 <CoderForLife> the web site doesn't say.... needs finishing... =)
19:06 <CoderForLife> but you'll have a faster car...
19:06 <Soul_keeper> what's the freeway speed limit there ?
19:06 <TheGasGiant> great for freeway cruising in rush hr traffic
19:06 <CoderForLife> ah found it

19:07 <TheGasGiant> near the airport....
19:07 <CoderForLife> what are you going to tell the Marine?
19:08 <Rookie_69> Going my way, sailor?

19:14 <TheGasGiant> hear...
19:15 <CoderForLife> the insurance has run out

19:16 <TheGasGiant> got pics?
19:16 <CoderForLife> yes - none lately
19:16 <CoderForLife> it dropped about a foot overnight due to the 3" of rain yesterday
19:17 <TheGasGiant> what happened? ahhh I was going to say it rained a lot, got saturated and gave way
19:17 <xcamel> basically..
19:17 <xcamel> and then some...
19:17 <CoderForLife> don't mean to burden this thread with my woes
19:17 <CoderForLife> I'll PM some links
19:17 <TheGasGiant> lol....what are friends for!
19:19 * Rookie_69 is trying to throw enough bits together to call supper.
19:19 <xcamel> your woes are allways welcome here..
19:21 <xcamel> and SciFiFriday too..
19:21 <Rookie_69> ... like, I finally replaced that leaky oil pan and now my radiator is spewing out green van blood?
19:22 <PovAddict> eek, I just accidentally set my media player to get music from /media
19:22 <PovAddict> which means it was spidering my whole Windows partition in /media/disk
19:23 * PovAddict runs it with "/media/disk/Documents\ and\ Settings/Nicolas/Mis\ documentos/Mi\ mÃºsica/" instead
19:23 <efc> I'll have to get TGG working on my plan for gas domination
19:24 <TheGasGiant> mwhahahaha...mwhahahaha
19:24 <Rookie_69> No idea what Pov said but it started with eek, so it must be bad.
19:24 <efc> My sunlight+seltzer water=>Methane plan
19:24 <xcamel> e - the java app is working now...
19:26 <TheGasGiant> sounds like a sort of plan
19:26 <efc> There are details to work out, like how to do it
19:27 <efc> I'm reading Chemistry for Dummies, chapter 8
19:27 <TheGasGiant> lol....do it in winter - so you can warm your house
19:27 <PovAddict> yeah when he sets things on fire while experimenting
19:28 <PovAddict> or makes things explode
19:28 <PovAddict> that will warm house
19:28 <efc> just getting water splitting via light would be pretty amazing
19:28 <efc> making any kind of nice burnable hydrocarbon is just gravy
19:28 <TheGasGiant> gravy for jam...
19:31 <efc> Methane just seemed like the easiest one
19:32 <Rookie_69> Hook up a photocell to a hydrogen generator if you want fuel from water... It is probably the easiest...
19:32 <efc> That would be around 5% efficient and extremely expensive
19:32 <TheGasGiant> very inefficient with st'd solar cells
19:33 <TheGasGiant> there is a company is Oz called Solar Systems using space grade solar cells to do it....
19:33 <efc> A chemical process might be something like dissolve this catalyst in water, pump in some CO2 and let it cook. Much, much cheaper
19:33 <efc> We could power everything right now from solar, its just way too expensive
19:35 <efc> I do have some more specific ideas but need to learn a lot more
19:36 <efc> In the meantime, buy my book, "How to dupe venture capitalists and make a bundle"
19:36 <xcamel> generate huge quantities of oxygen from aluminum oxide..
19:37 <Rookie_69> ... just add electricity?
19:37 <efc> Plants do all this of course, but they are good at making enzymes and have other tricks
19:39 *** seth_afk is now known as sethy
19:39 <xcamel> or something that generates alumina via catalyst from water - generating huge amounts of pure hydrogen
19:39 <sethy> ding
19:39 <xcamel> dingbat
19:39 <sethy> omg dingbat
19:40 <efc> I've thought about using 300ish nanometer Al strips as photon antennas. Dunno if that would really work like I think it would.
19:40 <efc> It needs to be a polar molecule to make the water "stick" and catch an energized electron
19:40 <efc> even then I'm not sure if it will split
19:41 <TheGasGiant> gotta go...wife draging me out shopping...then off to the car yard.. :)
19:41 <TheGasGiant> bye all

19:56 <PovAddict> they produce their own CO2 when breathing...
19:56 <xcamel> ok - then they use the term backwards..
19:56 <jackygrahamez_> come again?
19:56 <xcamel> they inhale co2, and exhale oxygen and other stuff..
19:57 <jackygrahamez_> who?
19:57 <xcamel> plants..
19:57 <jackygrahamez_> Robert?
19:57 <xcamel> laterz..
19:57 <efc> suffocate - not enough O2, or not enough CO2
19:58 <PovAddict> as I understand it, sunlight and CO2 in O2 and sugar out on photosynthesis, sugar and O2 in CO2 out when "breathing"
19:58 <sethy> HAY GUISE - FLUXBOX.ORG IS BACK

20:03 <CoderForLife> um how about hydroxide
20:03 <sethy> the loading process isnt just 'loading' it now has loading bar
20:03 <CoderForLife> or maybe hydroxide

20:10 <Rookie_69> Used for setting land speed records IIRC.
20:10 <Romulus> And my BOINC stuff winds up not voting
20:11 <efc> Such little molecules don't tend to absorb light (though I am not sure exactly what determines how a substance responds to light)
20:11 <Rookie_69> Good thing I'm chaste... as opposed to chased...
20:11 <jackygrahamez_> Quencing surface area are key
20:11 <CoderForLife> I'm (way) off
20:11 <CoderForLife> cya
20:11 <jackygrahamez_> Quenching
20:11 <jackygrahamez_> Aromatic carbons are good absorbers
20:12 <efc> Yeah, oil is black or at least dark..
20:12 <jackygrahamez_> Benzene is aromatic
20:12 <efc> Chlorophyll looks to me like a mini-antenna, dunno if thats why it really absorbs well
20:13 <efc> long chain with a Magnesium ion on the end (dunno what thats for)
20:13 <jackygrahamez_> That is where my project is involved
20:13 <jackygrahamez_> An advancement in photo hydrogen was made for light absorbing by shortening the atenna
20:14 <sethy> PovAddict: http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/5184/sadfghfdhten7.jpg
20:14 <PovAddict> nice
20:14 <jackygrahamez_> Efficiency in light collecting increased from 2 to 15%
20:14 <efc> Hmm
20:15 <sethy> also still no reply from jenn ;_l
20:15 <efc> I'd think that you might collect more, but if its a higher energy level than the plant can use.. it would tend to cook it.
20:15 <jackygrahamez_> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biological_hydrogen_production_(Algae)
20:16 <jackygrahamez_> short atanae collect lower wavelenghts which have higher energy
20:16 <jackygrahamez_> towards the violet end of the spectra
20:16 <efc> Right, but its going into a somewhat fixed process, my understanding was that if you have extra, it would get converted towards heat?
20:17 <Romulus> you make client for your help if you resist? :)
20:17 <jackygrahamez_> So the research discovered more efficient light collection, I'm interested in the second part, deprotonation
20:17 <efc> That does look impressive
20:18 <jackygrahamez_> bottleneck is durable enzymes
20:18 <efc> UV cooks them?
20:18 <jackygrahamez_> No, high energy oxygen degrades Fe-Hydrogenase
20:19 <jackygrahamez_> Finding a better enzyme is easier said than done
20:20 *** sethy has quit IRC
20:20 <jackygrahamez_> or somehow sequester the oxygen

20:23 <Rookie_69> Hi, K.
20:24 <jackygrahamez_> one thing that occurs to me, from reading about molecular force fields, computational models are great for describing behavior you expect, using them as a predictive tool like I'm attempting is a real challenge
20:25 <jackygrahamez_> When you setup an experiment you have to calibrate parameters every time to fit the right circumstance
20:28 <jackygrahamez_> Still I am hopeful that they point us in the right direction
20:28 <jackygrahamez_> When done correctly
20:30 <efc> I have to hit the road, nice talking to you. I hope to steal many more ideas soon!

21:24 <Rookie_69> Maybe my fingers need to all be broken.
21:24 * wdsmia wacks Rookie_69's finger with a 2x4
21:25 * Rookie_69 feels better now.
21:25 <KathrynM> forget a 2x4. Just drop the lid of the copying machine onto your hand.
21:25 <KathrynM> You'll get a huge bruise and a very sore hand.
21:25 * KathrynM speaks for experience
21:25 <KathrynM> errrrrr
21:25 <KathrynM> from
21:26 * wdsmia remember memograph machines that would take the hand
21:26 * wdsmia needs a ne "s" key
21:26 <Rookie_69> Drum takes fingers.
21:27 <wdsmia> and "w" lol
21:27 <Rookie_69> and a w key.
21:27 <Rookie_69> Lol.
21:28 <wdsmia> or maybe just a new ring finger
21:29 <Rookie_69> What does a ring finger have to do with it? Don't the index fingers do all the typing?
21:30 <wdsmia> only for Rookie's :)
21:30 <Rookie_69> :-P
21:31 <Rookie_69> Hunt and peck works for typing as well as feeding...
21:32 <Rookie_69> ... not very...
21:32 <wdsmia> chop stick typing and eating?
21:33 * Rookie_69 wonders if he can even hold a set of chopsticks anymore.
21:34 * KathrynM is good with chopsticks
21:34 * Rookie_69 notes that he spends too much time every day picking up dropped tools and hardware.
21:36 * Rookie_69 is also using right handed tools in a left handed wold so is at a double disadvantage right off the bat.
21:36 <Rookie_69> Wold?.. world...
21:37 <Rookie_69> Hammers are designed for smashing left handed hands.
21:38 <wdsmia> WOLD great Harry harry chapin song
21:38 * Rookie_69 doesn't blame the rest of the world... they're not in their right minds.
21:38 <Rookie_69> WOLD... Yup.
21:41 * Rookie_69 fears something nasty like MS is creeping in, but gave up doctors as a waste of time years ago.

21:43 <wdsmia> MicroSoft?
21:43 <Rookie_69> Not that bad.
21:47 <Rookie_69> It's probably just arthritis or the like in my hands... I've stalled too many engines by jamming my hand in the belts... but that doesn't explain the neck, back, hips, knees, calves, ankles, feet, etc.
21:48 <wdsmia> Thats easy you have reached middle age lol
21:49 <Rookie_69> Nope. I've reached old age.

21:51 <wdsmia> 62 was a bad year for kids... it produced the 2 of us
21:51 <Rookie_69> Lol.
21:56 <Rookie_69> One of the old guys with an artificial hip who stops in at work once in a while tool a look at me and offered his cane... said I needed it more than him.
