02:05 <Tank_Master> FPGA?

02:06 <efc> configurable. But its $1500, bit out of range for tinkering.

02:07 <efc> There were some other open soure video card projects

02:07 <efc> never seem to get done

10:08 <kexman> hello

10:09 <jackygrahamez> hi

10:09 <kexman> could anyone help me with BOINC BAM ?

10:09 <kexman> i made an account on boinc bam

10:09 <kexman> and now i want to add an account manager to boinc

10:09 <kexman> but i dont know what url it asks me for

10:10 <kexman> http://boincstats.com/bam/ ythis ?

10:10 <Romulus> Title: BOINCstats - BOINC Statistics / BAM! - BOINC Account Manager (at boincstats.com)

10:11 <kexman> is this an understandable answer ?

10:11 <kexman> i dont understand what you are tryint to tell me

10:13 <jackygrahamez> Hi kexman ignore Romulus he is a bot

10:13 *** [RKN]frost has quit IRC

10:14 <jackygrahamez> I wish I could answer your question, I hae no experience using the Account Managers

10:14 <kexman> never mind i got it :)

10:14 <kexman> http://bam.boincstats.com/

10:14 <kexman> this is the answer :)

10:14 <Romulus> Title: BOINCstats - BOINC Statistics / BAM! - BOINC Account Manager (at bam.boincstats.com)

10:17 <jackygrahamez> Database error: MySQL server has gone away

10:17 <jackygrahamez> I'm getting a transitioner error

10:17 <jackygrahamez> no tasks are generated for workunits

10:18 <jackygrahamez> at least the autodock workunits

10:18 <jackygrahamez> Seems to transition gingerly with upperCASE

10:20 <kexman> hmm what does communication deferred mean !?

10:22 <jackygrahamez> probably the amount of time to give between contacting the project

10:22 <kexman> do i need to set up a venue with the account manager ?

10:26 <jackygrahamez> I can only speak according to how it works without an account manager, the answer is you don't need a venue

10:28 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez: ./bin/stop;./bin/start

10:37 <jackygrahamez> Eventually I got it to work after stopping, deleting the latent pids, state, the run_state_hydrogenathome.xml

10:37 <jackygrahamez> then starting again

10:38 <PovAddict> just a stop/start would have reconnected to the DB....

10:39 <jackygrahamez> I tried that several times...

18:59 <CoderForLife> really screwing up traffic on the west side of town

19:00 <CoderForLife> "failure to properly secure an 80-ton locomotive"

19:00 <PovAddict> "and its insurance company - which will probably end up footing the half-million-dollar bill."

19:27 * KathrynM also notes that the mount USB drive from the CLI will not be needed because the driver is indeeded saved on the hard drive.

19:28 * KathrynM notes that she needs to figure out where she saved the driver.

19:28 * KathrynM notes she is talking in the third person and enjoying it.

19:28 <jackygrahamez__> [RKN]frosthi Kathryn

19:28 <jackygrahamez__> woops

19:29 * PovAddict notes KathrynM is noting lots of stuff

19:29 * KathrynM notes that she is probably losing her mind.

19:29 * KathrynM also notes that it's a very good thing it's Friday.

19:32 <jackygrahamez__> TGIF

19:32 <jackygrahamez__> does that mean you can watch Indiana Jones?

19:32 <KathrynM> I wonder if they released it here.

19:33 <PovAddict> there's always BitTorrent otherwise

19:33 <KathrynM> meh

19:33 <PovAddict> :P

19:33 <KathrynM> I'm not into movies so much.

19:34 <KathrynM> I don't have the attention span for them.

19:34 <PovAddict> I use the desktop wall plugin on compiz

19:34 <PovAddict> shows my attention span

19:34 <KathrynM> ???

19:34 <PovAddict> I'm changing between my four desktops way too much

19:34 <KathrynM> what's that?

19:34 <Romulus> or what drives many of the ATA crowd

19:35 <PovAddict> I have four desktops, in a 2x2 "grid"

19:35 <KathrynM> I only have 2

19:35 <PovAddict> moving mouse close to a screen edge moves to the desktop in that side

19:35 <KathrynM> nifty

19:35 <KathrynM> I might have to futz around with compiz again

19:35 <Romulus> I mean, if I went through the wx

19:35 <jackygrahamez__> how about CrystalSkull@Home? Anybody?

19:36 <KathrynM> I gotta run.  Gotta go into w&@^ early.  And w*@& late.

19:36 <KathrynM> blech

19:36 <KathrynM> oh, I did learn a new Korean word

19:36 <KathrynM> die gook jill = hiccup

19:36 * KathrynM is away: I may still exist in an alternate reality...

19:37 <KathrynM> I know y'all were dying to know that.

19:37 <PovAddict> and Win+E activates "expo" plugin: http://imagebin.ca/view/5GrAss.html

19:37 <Romulus> Title: snapshot13.png (at imagebin.ca)

19:37 <PovAddict> did you learn how to write that word with korean symbols yet? :)

19:37 <KathrynM> not a chance

19:38 * KathrynM waits for the shower to warm up

19:38 <PovAddict> lol

19:38 <KathrynM> what's impressive is it didn't escape my brain within 10 seconds

19:38 * PovAddict clicks "update email" and sees 7 unread

19:38 <PovAddict> 'sup with the lists... <.<

19:38 <PovAddict> talkative

19:38 <KathrynM> did that one guy send the same email like 4 times over the course of 2 days?

19:39 <KathrynM> I was tempted to respond to him and tell him to learn a bit about how BOINC works.

19:39 <PovAddict> 姚辉萍 was getting annoying

19:40 <KathrynM> that's the oen

19:40 <KathrynM> one even

19:40 <PovAddict> he's gotta learn some more BOINC... and English

19:40 <KathrynM> His English was fine.

19:40 <KathrynM> Or maybe I'm just used the the butchering of the language.

19:40 <PovAddict> "I wanna to know why??"

19:40 <KathrynM> heh

19:41 <KathrynM> THat would be better than some of the English I hear here.

19:41 <KathrynM> or is that here here? :)

19:41 <KathrynM> here hear?

19:41 * KathrynM stops before she hurts herself

19:41 <KathrynM> shower's ready

19:41 <KathrynM> *poof*

19:41 <PovAddict> bai

19:43 *** MacG_ has joined #boinc

19:43 *** MacG has quit IRC

19:54 <xcamel> ouch - leg cramp

20:00 *** efc has quit IRC

20:03 <CoderForLife> what's this I hear?

20:08 <MTughan> Wow, quite a spectacle with the train engine...

20:10 <MTughan> Looks like almost an even match between 80 tons of metal and a concrete bridge.

20:10 <MTughan> Engine's bent in some of the weaker places, but it's still holding all that concrete up.

20:11 <xcamel> must have made a hell of a noise..

20:11 <MTughan> "Sounded like 14 cannons going off"

20:16 <xcamel> I bet..

20:16 <PovAddict> MTughan: holding the concrete? not exactly

20:17 <PovAddict> oh wait misread

20:17 <PovAddict> misread as the columns are still holding it (actually the engine is holding quite a bit :P)

20:17 <MTughan> Only one column is still intact.

20:18 <MTughan> Although to stop 80 tons, those first two columns must've been incredibly strong.

20:19 <MTughan> Using some of the figures in the article, I could figure out how much average force was applied to stop the engine.

20:19 <MTughan> &math convert 80 tons kg

20:19 <Romulus> MTughan: 72574.7792

20:19 <MTughan> Dang...

20:19 <MTughan> &math convert 45 miles meters

20:19 <Romulus> MTughan: 72420.48

20:20 <MTughan> How far do you think the engine slid?

20:21 <MTughan> Oh, it's 44 feet wide, slid about 2/3 of the way in...

20:21 <MTughan> Say 30 feet.

20:22 <MTughan> &math calc [math convert 80 tons kg] * ([math convert 45 miles meters] ** 2) * 0.5 / [math convert 30 feet to meters]

20:22 <Romulus> MTughan: 2.08133653684e+13

20:22 <MTughan> Holy shit...

20:22 <wdsmia> asks MTughan to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

20:22 <MTughan> Oops.

20:22 <MTughan> That is the number of Newtons...

20:22 <MTughan> &query Romulus

20:22 <Romulus> Dunno, MTughan.

20:22 <MTughan> Oops...

20:22 <CoderForLife> enormous ergs

20:23 <CoderForLife> "objects in motion tend to remain in motion, despite big concrete pillars"

20:23 <MTughan> &math convert [math calc [math convert 80 tons kg] * ([math convert 45 miles meters] ** 2) * 0.5 / [math convert 30 feet to meters]] N lbf

20:23 <Romulus> MTughan: 4.67903067082e+12

20:23 <MTughan> That much pound force.

20:24 <MTughan> Either way, it's a hell of a lot of force...

20:24 <CoderForLife> no wonder the truck driver nailed the gas

20:24 <MTughan> Wait, I might have missed something...

20:24 <MTughan> &math convert [math calc [math convert 80 tons kg] * ([math convert 45 mph "meters per second"] ** 2) * 0.5 / [math convert 30 feet to meters]] N lbf

20:24 <Romulus> MTughan: Error: meterspersecond is not a valid unit.

20:24 <CoderForLife> hell and damnation followeth him

20:25 <MTughan> &math convert [math calc [math convert 80 tons kg] * ([math calc [math convert 45 miles to km] / 3.6]** 2) * 0.5 / [math convert 30 feet to meters]] N lbf

20:25 <Romulus> MTughan: 361036.317193

20:25 <MTughan> Okay, that seems better. Still a lot of force though.

20:25 <MTughan> &math calc [math convert 80 tons kg] * ([math calc [math convert 45 miles to km] / 3.6]** 2) * 0.5 / [math convert 30 feet to meters]

20:25 <Romulus> MTughan: 1605969.55003

20:25 <MTughan> 1.6 million Newtons...

20:25 <Romulus> smacks rommie in the life of a sudden it's 3:15 ;)

20:26 <CoderForLife> you don't have to be an Einstein to realize that's trouble

20:26 <MTughan> That's with very rough figures, but it gives you an idea how strong those columns were.

20:26 <MTughan> No, that's how much force the columns exerted on the engine.

20:28 <MTughan> I believe it's about 10 newtons to pull a rubber block along a desk.

20:28 <CoderForLife> the irresitable force met the immovable objects

20:29 <MTughan> And the immovable became portable. xD

20:30 <MTughan> "The force of Earth's gravity on a human being with a mass of 70 kg is approximately 687 N."

20:30 <MTughan> &math convert 70 kb lb

20:30 <Romulus> MTughan: Error: kb is not a valid unit.

20:30 <MTughan> &math convert 70 kg lb

20:30 <Romulus> MTughan: 154.323583529

20:30 <MTughan> &math calc 1600000 / 687

20:30 <Romulus> MTughan: 2328.96652111

20:30 <CoderForLife> still a mess, no matter what &math convert says =)

20:30 <MTughan> Over 2000 times more.

20:30 <MTughan> lol

20:31 <CoderForLife> I told you all would enjoy that one

20:32 <MTughan> You're talking to the former physics student.

20:32 <CoderForLife> I'm glad I'm not a west-sider

20:32 <MTughan> Basically, 1.6 million N plus an 80-ton train engine = bad.

20:33 <CoderForLife> 80-ton train by itself is bad

20:33 <MTughan> Even if it's on the tracks?

20:33 <MTughan> It's useful if it's hauling stuff.

20:34 <CoderForLife> it you're in it's path

20:34 <MTughan> Big IF.

20:34 <CoderForLife> oh well - offortunite

20:34 <MTughan> Bye.

20:35 <CoderForLife> buh-bye all

20:35 <MTughan> I've heard of runon sentences, but runon words?

20:35 <CoderForLife> try German =)

20:35 <CoderForLife> cya =)
