04:51 <CoderForLife> to start building the wall, I have to be on someone's calendar - to be on someone's calendar I have to award the contract - to award the contract I must have bids - to have bids I must have a plan - to have a plan I must get the civil engineer to take his measurements - to take his measurements he needs a few dry days - to have a few dry days it needs to not rain

04:51 <CoderForLife> in other words, I'm doomed

04:52 <KathrynM> definitely sounds that way

04:52 <CoderForLife> there's some other dependencies, such as financing, building permits, homeowner's association approval, etc.

04:54 <KathrynM> sounds like fun...  NOT

04:54 <CoderForLife> no - there's no joy in this whatsoever

04:55 * CoderForLife looks at weather radar

04:55 <CoderForLife> ah, just enough storm to wake me up

04:56 <CoderForLife>

04:56 <Romulus> <> (at

04:56 <CoderForLife> I live just north of the second "o" in "Kenwood"

04:57 <KathrynM> just enough to wake up.  too much to go back to sleep

04:57 <CoderForLife> plink

04:57 * KathrynM checks cleveland weather

04:57 <CoderForLife> yeah since it's in my normal wake-up timeframe

04:57 * KathrynM wonders why my network is so flipping slow

04:57 <CoderForLife> tried to rollover

04:58 <CoderForLife> plink

04:58 <CoderForLife> plink

04:58 <KathrynM> raining at home

04:59 <CoderForLife> what side of Cleveland are you from?

04:59 <KathrynM> south east

05:00 <CoderForLife> ah - I've really only been to Westlake

05:00 <CoderForLife> on business

05:00 <KathrynM> nice area

05:01 <CoderForLife> then on south to Canton, and to Amish country in Holmes County

05:01 <KathrynM> only been to Amish country a couple times.

05:01 <KathrynM> Took the train down there when I was little

05:02 <CoderForLife> I've been to Berlin there a few times (pronounced Ber'-lin)

05:02 <CoderForLife> usually eat at Der Dutchman

05:14 <CoderForLife> brb -  need... breakfast...

05:30 <KathrynM> what's for breaky?

05:30 <CoderForLife> I was wondering if you'd ask

05:31 <KathrynM> :D

05:31 <KathrynM> Just finished dinner here

05:32 <CoderForLife> as usual when you ask on a Sunday morning, it was McDonald's breakfast leftovers from Saturday morning

05:32 <KathrynM> lol

05:32 <CoderForLife> we are all creatures of habit

05:33 <KathrynM> pasta here.  and a big glass of milk

05:33 <KathrynM> I need to put the leftovers away

05:33 <Romulus> that's for Windows XP

05:34 <KathrynM> I agree Rommie

05:41 * CoderForLife nods

05:42 * KathrynM wonders how much work is on the 64 bit machine.... I'd like to upgrade it to F9 tonight

05:48 <CoderForLife> I wish I had time to look at F9, just too busy ATM

05:49 <KathrynM> got the F8 dvd burned.  I'll use that

05:49 <KathrynM> F7 64 bit is kinda flaky

05:50 * KathrynM checks to see what else I can cross of the todo list

05:52 * CoderForLife looks at a mortgage calculator

05:58 <CoderForLife> arrgghh

05:59 <KathrynM> sounds painful

06:00 <Romulus> i think (POV knows for sure)

06:00 <CoderForLife> quite

06:00 <CoderForLife> the calculators say "we can't give you that kind of loan"

06:00 <KathrynM> eek

06:06 <CoderForLife> I guess I need to get back to "how much can I afford to pay each month"

07:25 <CoderForLife> when I do my F9 install, I plan to start fresh

07:25 <KathrynM> This is my daily driver

07:25 <KathrynM> I've given up on updating the other box

07:25 <CoderForLife> it will go on an F7 machine, that has a nasty elf2 existing yum update problem

07:26 <CoderForLife> better to start all sparkly fresh

07:26 <KathrynM> I'll do just about anything to get the other machine updated.

07:26 <KathrynM> But not at 8pm on a sunday night

07:27 <CoderForLife> that's a bit late to "get started"

07:27 <KathrynM> plus I need to make a lyrics card for sk8tr boy

08:42 *** exc1 has quit IRC

08:54 <xcamel> I have one on 64 bit - it runs well.

08:55 <KathrynM> It just BOINCs so I don't really care.  But I've never upgraded a Fedora machine.  So it would be good experience too.

08:56 <CoderForLife> I have one on F8, one on F7, one on ubuntu 6, my open SuSE box became a Windows XP media server, another 5 machines on XP and one doing Vista drugs

08:56 <KathrynM> Vista drugs ;)

08:57 <CoderForLife> what a screwy OS

08:57 * KathrynM agrees

08:59 * CoderForLife wonders if there's such thing as "used" Allan block

14:36 <briareus> hey all

14:36 <briareus> I noticed something odd

14:37 <briareus> I am running ./run_client -return_results_immediately

14:37 <briareus> but then I ./run_manager and it shows about a dozen completed units ready to report

14:37 <briareus> what's going on?

14:44 <Soul_keeper> lol

14:44 <briareus> seriously

14:45 <briareus> do you have an answer or just giggles :)

14:45 <Soul_keeper> all i know is i'd be pissed if that happened to me, never tryed -return_results_immediately  myself

14:46 <Soul_keeper> is the server down for the project in question ?

14:47 <briareus> nope, the moment I fired up the manager and manually updated them they all streamed out

14:48 <Soul_keeper> what version of the client are you using ?

14:48 <briareus> 5.8.16 i686-pc-linux-gnu

14:49 <Soul_keeper> that's old

14:49 <Soul_keeper> try a newer one

14:50 <briareus> I cant

14:50 <briareus> they offer the newer one for ubuntu

14:50 <briareus> not for general

14:50 <Soul_keeper> then download your own

14:50 <Soul_keeper> just compile it

14:51 <briareus> I did: 5.8.16

14:51 <briareus> thats the newest non-ubuntu I can find

14:51 <Soul_keeper> we are up over 6.x.x

14:51 <Romulus> PovAddict: that's because he's an actuary

14:51 <briareus> and I must say, I am unhappy about the ubuntu favoritism, but oh well

14:52 <briareus> same deal, the 6+ is ubuntu unless I want cli-only

14:56 <Soul_keeper> makes it easy to remove/upgrade if need be

14:57 <briareus> it would be a hell of a lot more user friendly if they simply didn't make it all ubuntu-centric on the main page

14:57 <briareus> makes me not want to bother, because I am putting more time into managing it now than before. It's headed the wrong direction

14:57 <briareus> .

14:57 <briareus> .

14:57 <Soul_keeper> yeah ubuntu is evil :)

14:58 <briareus> not that ubuntu is evil, but they didn't favor it until recently

16:27 <PovAddict> briareus: the so called "ubuntu" version is "compiled with libraries from latest ubuntu, should work on ANY decently recent distro"

16:27 <PovAddict> it's definitely not ubuntu-only

16:27 <briareus> excellent

16:27 <PovAddict> also, "return_results_immediately" doesn't exist in 5.x versions

16:27 <PovAddict> not even 5.10.x

16:28 <briareus> it's offered in the --help on mine now

16:28 * CoderForLife stands and declares "TFFE Forever"!

16:28 <briareus> but I'm in 5.8

16:28 <PovAddict> --return_results_immediately never did anything useful; the <return_results_immediately> option in cc_config.xml exists since 6.1.7 or something

16:56 <MTughan> About the machine readability?

16:56 <MTughan> Ah, that one...

16:59 <PovAddict> yeah

16:59 <PovAddict> BOINC has barely any implementation details documented

16:59 <Romulus> PovAddict: there is before any sub-heading

16:59 <PovAddict> which isn't very welcome to people wanting to help with the code

17:02 *** wdsmia has quit IRC

17:02 *** wdsmia has joined #Boinc

17:02 <MTughan> And having that many structures just complicates more.

17:02 <MTughan> briareus: What were you wanting to compile from the SVN checkout?

17:10 <briareus> a newer boinc client

17:10 <briareus> commandline or graphical but at least commandline

17:11 <PovAddict> compiling the GUI from source is a big pain

17:11 <MTughan> What version are you using now?

17:12 <MTughan> And what's wrong with it or any other version available for download?

17:19 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

17:25 <briareus> well the -return_results_immediately wasn't working

17:25 <briareus> so someone suggested I go newer

17:25 <briareus> but now I see if it doesn't have it and i should let it report when it wants, well its moot

17:25 <briareus> my 5.8.16 works fine then

17:26 <MTughan> Newer? For sure. 5.10.45 is the latest stable, and 6.2.2 is in alpha/beta, I'm not sure which.

17:26 <MTughan> 5.8.16 must be at least a half year old.

17:27 <PovAddict> briareus: stop bothering with that setting

17:27 <MTughan> Oops... Over a year old. April 16th, 2007.

17:27 <briareus> PovAddict: I know, you are the one that told me so

17:27 <PovAddict> get a 5.10 anyway ;)

17:28 <briareus> whats so better

17:30 <Soul_keeper> various bug fixes and updates, like anything else

17:30 <MTughan> And now that I look at it, 5.8.16 is actually older than Apr 16, '07...

17:30 <briareus> ok

17:31 <MTughan> It's not an upgrade just for the sake of upgrading.

21:15 <Rookie_69> Maybe not... Devil Woman.

21:15 <MTughan> I like cranberry-raspberry juice. Good flavour.

21:16 <MTughan> And Rookie_69: You do need to turn the radio out.

21:16 <Rookie_69> How do I turn it out?

21:16 <MTughan> When I came home last night, I had gone the previous 41 hours with 4 hours of sleep. I was down for a good 10-11 hours that night.

21:16 <MTughan> Off* You know what I mean.

21:17 <MTughan> Thought I'm not sure what I was thinking... Maybe light out.

21:17 <Romulus> goes to hide in a year

21:17 * Rookie_69 sleeps 10mout of every 24... or tries to.

21:17 <Rookie_69> mout???

21:17 <Rookie_69> out.

21:17 *** d00m1001 has quit IRC

21:17 <PovAddict> hey MTughan

21:18 <MTughan> 'lo Pov

21:18 <PovAddict> forgot to ask, how was the LAN party?

21:18 <Rookie_69> Once in a while they play a real song.

21:19 <MTughan> Pretty good. We were planning for 9 Xbox 360s, but 4 pulled out a few hours before, and 1 was a no show. Still fun though.

21:19 <Rookie_69> Barry Manilow???

21:19 *** nickuwo has joined #boinc

21:20 <Rookie_69> Well, It's the seventies show.

21:20 <Rookie_69> ... not That Seventies Show...

21:22 <Rookie_69> Bachman Turner Overdose... That's better.

21:30 <Rookie_69> 10cc.

21:30 <Rookie_69> The things we do for rubs...?

21:31 <Rookie_69> Oh. Love.

21:31 <Rookie_69> Rubs seems more likely.

21:33 <Rookie_69> Blinded By The Light... I still don't know what he's saying...

21:35 <Rookie_69> Little early birdie gave my anus twirly whilly...

21:35 <Rookie_69> ... whirly...

21:36 <wdsmia> way to much info there Glenn

21:36 <Rookie_69> I know that's not the words, but...\

21:37 <Rookie_69> Stupid backslash...

21:37 *** Celelaptop has quit IRC

21:38 <Rookie_69> Ah! Procol Harem!

21:38 * Rookie_69 ups the volume.

21:40 <Rookie_69> ... twice.

21:43 * Rookie_69 turns down volume for disco-ish segue(sp?)

21:43 <Rookie_69> Sounds like Sir Reginald Dwight atm.

21:44 <Rookie_69> (Or Elton John for the rest of you.)

21:45 <Rookie_69> Don't let your so go down on me... or something like that.

21:45 <Rookie_69> Darn

21:45 <Rookie_69> Son...

21:46 * Rookie_69 apparently isn't awake.

21:48 <Rookie_69> Blue Oyster Cult...

21:48 <Rookie_69> Don't Fear The Reaper...

21:51 <Rookie_69> That title only took two tries :-)

21:52 <Rookie_69> Eric Clapton... After Midnight...

21:52 <jackygrahamez_> Maybe Brittney can make a comeback signing it

21:53 <Rookie_69> Brittney who???

21:53 <jackygrahamez_> oh nevermind just kidding

21:53 <Rookie_69> Lol.

21:54 *** Tank_Master has joined #BOINC

21:55 * Rookie_69 fears that

21:56 <Rookie_69> Into The Seventies

21:56 <Rookie_69> Radio show is over.

21:56 * Rookie_69 removes Enter bu5tton.

21:56 <Rookie_69> ?

21:57 <Rookie_69> button.

21:57 * Rookie_69 can't type anymore.

21:57 * Tank_Master doesnt try anymore

21:58 <Rookie_69> I may be slow, but I'm inconsistent.

21:58 <Rookie_69> Men Without Hats?

21:59 <Rookie_69> Still odd tunes playing.

22:00 <MTughan> Rookie_69: Time to sleep, you're becoming delirious.

22:00 <Rookie_69> I concur.

22:02 * Rookie_69 uses being Canadian as an excuse because most people don't know any better.

22:02 * Rookie_69 ducks.

22:02 * Tank_Master makes note to MTughan that Rookie_69 is always like that

22:03 * MTughan lives in Toronto

22:05 * Rookie_69 has a nephew that insists his name is Michael, not Mike... and he lives in Ontario.

22:05 <Rookie_69> Kanata, last time I looked.

22:05 <MTughan> Those are two characteristics of me, but I don't live up in the wild north. xD

22:07 <Rookie_69> If I ever get off my ass, I'll probably go up to Muskoka and camp in my parents' back yard.

22:08 <Rookie_69> Ten acres of mostly pond... I'll probably get wet.

22:09 <Rookie_69> ... but who cares?

22:09 <MTughan> Where do you live anyway? Muskoka's a bit of a drive from here. 2 hours or so.

22:10 <MTughan> Not as big as the trip we're planning out east this summer, but still long...

22:10 <Rookie_69> Except for the salt water, it's a bit like Halifax...

22:10 <MTughan> Muskoka? lol

22:10 *** Tank_Master has quit IRC

22:10 *** Tank_Master_ has joined #BOINC

22:10 <Rookie_69> Well, That's where my family is...

22:11 *** Tank_Master_ is now known as Tank_Master

22:11 <Rookie_69> I'm across the harbour from Haqlifax.

22:11 <Rookie_69> ?

22:11 <MTughan> Cool.

22:11 <Rookie_69> Halifax.

22:11 <MTughan> I think the longest we've ever driven is out to Vancouver from Toronto.

22:12 <MTughan> That takes us 7 days.

22:12 <Rookie_69> Haven't been in Ont since '94/'95

22:12 <MTughan> Well, not much has changed here since then, I'd say.

22:12 <MTughan> Skydome's now known as the Roger's Centre.

22:13 <MTughan> CN Tower's no longer the tallest freestanding structure.

22:13 <Rookie_69> I drove from BC to NL in '82... Took me about 2 1/2 months or so.

22:13 <Rookie_69> I wasn't in a hurry

22:13 <MTughan> That's a good long drive, for sure...

22:14 <Rookie_69> 4500 miles or thereabout.

22:16 <Rookie_69> Toronto is only a good day's drive from here... Out west is the long drive.

22:18 <Rookie_69> My Dad retired to outside of Bracebridge, My sister is in Kanata, My little brother is in

22:19 <Rookie_69> Wawa, My older brother is in ... Brampton?... What am I doing in Nova Scotia?

22:19 <MTughan> Heh, I'm in Brampton too.

22:20 <Rookie_69> Shivering at this time of year...

22:20 <MTughan> Here? No way.

22:20 <Rookie_69> Me.

22:20 <MTughan> Ah...

22:22 <Rookie_69> My older brother followed his job south from SSM when CN ended up owning ACR a few years back

22:23 <Rookie_69> ... or something like that...

22:25 <Rookie_69> ... my little brother just had a little girl with an OPP officer(I think) in Wawa, so he's stuck up there for a while.

22:27 *** Celelaptop has joined #boinc

22:27 * Rookie_69 wonders when the ice clears off of Lake Muskoka...

22:29 * Rookie_69 could always take up ice sailing...

22:30 * Rookie_69 wonders how to do it without the salt spray...

22:31 <Rookie_69> A face full of fecal coliform is part of boating here.

22:32 <Rookie_69> ... although they're working on it.

22:33 <Rookie_69> No more floaties in the harbour.

22:36 <Rookie_69> ... maybe even fewer floaties...

22:38 * Rookie_69 goes hypothermic on the tubing river in August...

22:39 *** Tank_Master has quit IRC

22:39 * Rookie_69 talks to himself a lot.

22:39 *** Tank_Master_ has joined #BOINC

22:39 <quail> :-)

22:40 <Rookie_69> WB.

22:40 *** Tank_Master_ is now known as Tank_Master

22:43 * Rookie_69 wonders how close Quail is to Camden Lock.

22:44 <quail> where is that?

22:44 <Romulus> or what drives many of the ATA crowd

22:44 <MTughan> Mmm... Lemon meringue pie...

22:44 <Rookie_69> Somewhere in UK.

22:44 * Rookie_69 realizes that Quail is a bit south of there.

22:45 * Rookie_69 slaps himself.

22:45 * Rookie_69 was thinking of someone else.

22:46 <quail> Rookie_69: yeah I way way south of it ;-)

22:46 <Rookie_69> Yeah... a bit.

22:47 * Rookie_69 notes that he's probably closer to Camden Lock than Quail.

22:48 <quail> :-)

22:48 * Rookie_69 wonders who it was that was from the London area...

23:01 <Tank_Master> I just came up with the perfict combo to go with taking vitams

23:01 <Tank_Master> pizza and watter

23:02 <Tank_Master> the fat in pizza will dissolve the fat suliable vitamens, and the watter will dissolve the watter soulable ones

23:02 <Rookie_69> Soggy pizza...

23:02 <Rookie_69> Yum.

23:02 <Tank_Master> even better ;)

23:03 <Tank_Master> lol

23:03 <Rookie_69> Soggy pizza was on the menu tonight, but I fell asleep before the dough thawed out.

23:03 <Tank_Master> nice

23:04 <Rookie_69> It's thawed now, but I ain't cooking.

23:04 * Rookie_69 goes to bed hungry.

23:05 <Tank_Master> itll help that gut of yours

23:06 * Rookie_69 weighs 154 lbs atm...

23:06 * Rookie_69 is about 5'11"

23:07 <Tank_Master> lol

23:07 * Rookie_69 doesn't have much of a gut.

23:07 <Rookie_69> LOl.

23:07 <Tank_Master> its never a good sign when your skinnyer than your date

23:09 <Tank_Master> you need to get out more

23:09 <Rookie_69> Lol.

23:10 * Rookie_69 needs to get out more.

23:10 <Tank_Master> as long as they arent dammaged goods

23:10 <Rookie_69> Um... crack whores...

23:10 <Tank_Master> those yould be dammaged, yes

23:11 <Rookie_69> A peanut butter sandwich in the morning can be used as an enticement.

23:11 <Rookie_69> ... or son I've heard.

23:12 <Rookie_69> ... so...

23:12 <Rookie_69> Stupid keys!

23:13 * Rookie_69 needs to move.

23:14 * Rookie_69 looks out the door and sees fat chicks, crack whores, and tweeny-boppers.

23:14 * Rookie_69 closes the door.

23:16 * Rookie_69 says funk it and heads off to bed.

23:16 <Rookie_69> NN.

23:22 *** nickuwo has quit IRC

23:23 *** nickuwo has joined #boinc

23:23 <PovAddict> lol, just found this in chat logs

23:23 <PovAddict> from when Google launched Android

23:23 <Tank_Master> tell then its not safe for your help to store food with nor refridge

23:23 <PovAddict> and people were already calling it "iPhone killer" even though the iPhone was 5 months from being released

23:23 <PovAddict> parody of the "get a mac" ads:

23:23 <PovAddict> "Hi, I'm a Mac."

23:23 <Tank_Master> icrap should die

23:23 <PovAddict> "And I'm a, uh... Google... thing. RAWR."

23:24 <KathrynM> lol

23:24 <PovAddict> "Wow, the iPhone is 5+ months from shipping and the phrase 'iPhone killer' is already coined. Only in America."

23:24 <KathrynM> very true :)

23:24 <PovAddict> "We have found that people spend lots of time offline. A good percentage of this time is spent in the toilet. So we decided that we will combine google news and google reader, and provide customized weekly printed toilet paper (with contextual printed ads of course)."

23:24 <Tank_Master> ads should die

23:26 <MTughan> Tank_Master: Use Firefox? Get AdBlock Plus.

23:26 <PovAddict> "behold, the Internet!"

23:26 <PovAddict> "omg it's full of ads"

23:26 <MTughan> Blocks Flash and images from certain domains, which you can customize.

23:26 * KathrynM loves ABP

23:27 <MTughan> First day I got it, I just went around to lots of sites I knew had ads and added them all.

23:27 <MTughan> So nice to have Explosm without ads...

23:27 <Tank_Master> I use IE7pro

23:27 * KathrynM blocks the annoying team ads in sigs on boinc forums

23:27 <MTughan> Tank_Master: Idiot.

23:27 <Tank_Master> it blocks ads in IE

23:28 <MTughan> Even on Windows now, I don't use IE.

23:28 <MTughan> Safari!

23:28 <Tank_Master> and it to blocks flash

23:28 <PovAddict> best way to block flash

23:28 <PovAddict> don't have it installed

23:28 <Tank_Master> safari is crap

23:28 <Romulus> I'm glad they stopped using envelopes with windows at work. and the program already, just need help...

23:28 <MTughan> Safari is faster than IE and FF. Although that's WebKit.

23:28 <Tank_Master> or have the plugin disabled

23:29 <MTughan> PovAddict: True. But what about Flash games?

23:29 <PovAddict> I still think Apple doesn't give KDE developers enough credit...

23:29 <MTughan> I read about that... Who develops WebKit anyway? Apple or other devs?

23:29 <Tank_Master> thats cus they (apple) didnt creat KDE

23:30 <PovAddict> MTughan: well, being open source...

23:30 <PovAddict> many apple devs work on it

23:30 <PovAddict> many outsiders contribute

23:30 <PovAddict> many KDE developers contribute

23:31 <PovAddict> *and*, KDE developers still work on KHTML, and WebKit team can borrow changes from KHTML back to WebKit

23:31 <PovAddict> and vice versa of course

23:32 <PovAddict> still, particularly in marketing, they put it as "we made the fastest browser ever"

23:32 <PovAddict> even though most of the work wasn't made by them

23:32 <Tank_Master> is safari going to be ACID2 complient?

23:33 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: it already is

23:33 <MTughan> It's already Acid3 compliant.

23:33 <Tank_Master> good

23:33 <MTughan> Well, the latest revision is. The stable isn't.

23:33 <Tank_Master> ahh

23:33 <MTughan> And they found a bug in the Acid3 test along the way that would've broken SVG rules to pass.

23:33 <PovAddict> October 31st 2005 first version of Safari released with acid2 compliance

23:33 <Tank_Master> lol

23:34 <Tank_Master> its taken that long for FF and IE to become A2 complient?

23:34 <Tank_Master> wow

23:35 <MTughan> Well, consider. IE is proprietary, and even FF isn't really open source.

23:35 <Tank_Master> Im not supprised on IE, btu I would have thought FF would be by now

23:36 <PovAddict> FF is working VERY slowly on acid3

23:36 <PovAddict> they're really busy trying to get firefox3 stable

23:36 <PovAddict> can't get adding new features to pass a test

23:37 <MTughan> F9 comes with FF3B5. Looks cool.

23:39 <Tank_Master> FF is in RC1 now

23:40 <MTughan> Probably a package update now then.

23:41 <MTughan> Or soon to be.

23:43 * KathrynM is away: I may still exist in an alternate reality...
