03:45 <CoderForLife> I need to put together a sync'd Windows/Linux development environment

03:46 <CoderForLife> planning simulateous s/w upgrades

03:46 <CoderForLife> going to use Subversion as a common ground between the platforms

03:46 <freelarry> setting up xp pro 64 on new quad  -- ohh not sure about that but if you want to try some of my machines for your developement talk to pov about setting up an account on them

03:46 <CoderForLife> one source code for both platforms

03:47 <freelarry> that should be good

03:47 <CoderForLife> maybe at some point - thanks bunches

03:48 <freelarry> just realize i don't have the fastest connection around but not to bad now - went back to high speed cable

03:48 <CoderForLife> overall, I think I'm doing better on cable than I did on ADSL - I think I'll get a bite to eat from the kitchen - brb

03:49 <freelarry> humm may have a problem here - got to 10% format and new machine shut down

03:55 <CoderForLife> back

03:55 <CoderForLife> not good, freelarry

03:56 <CoderForLife> I was donwloading F9 DVD ISO when I went to bed last time, and it had stopped way short - re-downloading now

03:57 <CoderForLife> er last night*

04:00 <CoderForLife> 41% done now - further than last night

04:04 <freelarry> ugg

04:04 <freelarry> don't know what going on yet - seems to not want to load os so checking bios currently

04:05 <freelarry> could be a bad dvd or loose connection - cant get side off to check it tho

04:07 <freelarry> humm just shutting down by itself - hope the heatsink on good

04:09 <CoderForLife> interesting

04:20 <CoderForLife> Fedora 9

04:21 <freelarry> well tore off some access plates and noticed the cpu fan was blocked by a wire so maybe it will continue to run now that i freed it

04:21 <freelarry> sounds quiter

04:23 <CoderForLife> ah would be a significant problem

04:23 <freelarry> yeah and couldn't get side plate off to see what happened during transport

04:23 <freelarry> took off front and then th drive access plates to reach in

04:24 <CoderForLife> major surgery

04:24 <freelarry> cosmetic only - ps exhasut cooler now too

04:25 <Romulus> what do you think it's a wash.

04:25 <freelarry> format now at 2%

04:25 <freelarry> your dl probable will finish before the format does

04:26 <freelarry> 1% every 1.5 to 2 minutes

04:26 <CoderForLife> 84%

04:27 <freelarry> 4%

04:27 <freelarry> ;P

04:27 <CoderForLife> a-yuppa

04:28 <freelarry> loks like the powr cable for back fan had drooped into the cpu fan so should go well now - will wait till past the 10% point befoe leaving tho

05:15 * KathrynM is back (gone 09:38:52)

05:16 <CoderForLife> hello KathrynM

05:16 <KathrynM> evenin CoderForLife

05:24 <CoderForLife> I've been up since 3am

05:24 <KathrynM> you're channeling my insomnia

05:24 <CoderForLife> right now I'm trying to get the SHA1 computed on the F9 DVD ISO I downloaded

05:25 <CoderForLife> Windows is not nearly as SHA1 computational friendly as Linux

05:25 <KathrynM> :)

05:30 <CoderForLife> DVD ISO SHA1 checks out

05:31 <Romulus> At least not with just one sip.

05:31 <CoderForLife> true that, Rommie

05:31 <KathrynM> Rommie is a fountain of wisdom.

05:31 <CoderForLife> net inst ISO also checks

05:32 <CoderForLife> I haven't historically had much luck with CD/DVD-based installs on the target box

05:32 <CoderForLife> I've had the most success with just getting booted, and doing installs over HTTP

05:33 <KathrynM> That's on my list for the weekend.

05:33 <KathrynM> If this damn migraine goes away that is

05:34 <CoderForLife> take 2 ISOs and call me in the morning

05:35 * CoderForLife yawns

05:35 <CoderForLife> time to get ready for w@#%

05:35 <KathrynM> all hail the weekend

05:35 <CoderForLife> seems like I've been up for hours

05:35 <KathrynM> you have been up for hours

05:35 <CoderForLife> oh, yeah, right

05:35 <CoderForLife> 3 day weekend coming up

05:36 <KathrynM> lucky

05:36 <CoderForLife> great time for Linux installs

05:36 <CoderForLife> project planning

05:36 <CoderForLife> Coding environment upgrades

05:36 <KathrynM> doesn't everyone spend their weekends doing geeky stuff

05:37 <CoderForLife> oh, and family somewhere along the way

05:37 <KathrynM> oh yea.  family

05:37 <CoderForLife> yeah, those hangers-on

05:37 <KathrynM> pains

05:37 <CoderForLife> a needy bunch of people

05:38 <CoderForLife> well, the shower is calling my name

05:38 <KathrynM> laterz

05:39 <CoderForLife> yes, my name is pronounced "FSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS"

05:39 <CoderForLife> bbiab - wetter but happier

06:04 <CoderForLife> b

06:05 <KathrynM> squeaky clean?

06:09 * CoderForLife squeaks

06:09 <CoderForLife> appears so

06:09 <CoderForLife> maybe that was a creak...

06:09 <KathrynM> squeak, creak

06:09 <KathrynM> what's the difference :)

06:10 <CoderForLife> opposites directions in entropy

06:11 <CoderForLife> one toward higher order, the other toward more disorder

06:12 <KathrynM> :)

06:12 <CoderForLife> (knee disorder, hip disorder, back disorder)

06:12 <KathrynM> lol

06:12 <CoderForLife> well, time to go W@#% for The Man - make some wall money

06:12 <KathrynM> enjoy (as best you can)

06:13 <CoderForLife> it's Friday so that helps

06:13 <KathrynM> definitely

06:13 <CoderForLife> and we got out for pizza on Friday, so that helps too

06:13 <KathrynM> even more so

06:13 <CoderForLife> man, the sky is rose colored this morning

06:14 <CoderForLife> from purple down to hot pink

06:14 <CoderForLife> spectacular

06:14 <KathrynM> sounds pretty

06:14 <CoderForLife> wonderful

06:14 <CoderForLife> but "red sky at morning..."

06:14 <KathrynM> sailor take warning

06:15 <KathrynM> are you going sailing?

06:15 <CoderForLife> if the hill doesn't stop, I'll be swimming in the creek

06:15 <CoderForLife> does that count?

06:15 <KathrynM> yeah

06:15 <CoderForLife> OK

06:16 <CoderForLife> I'm on the rim and out the door

06:16 <CoderForLife> cya

06:16 <KathrynM> laterz

06:16 * CoderForLife sees he is already "away"

06:16 * CoderForLife makes it so

06:20 <Didactylos> Who maintains the Debian port?

06:22 <KathrynM> Frank Thomas??

06:36 <hawmps> the harbormaster..

06:42 <Didactylos> I think he might have broken SSL again.

06:43 <KathrynM> oh fun

11:33 *** jackygrahamez has joined #boinc

11:33 <jackygrahamez> hi all

11:33 <freelarry> morn jackygrahamez

11:33 <jackygrahamez> does anyone have experience using a hosting providers?

11:34 <jackygrahamez> particularly a VPS

11:34 * freelarry has glazed look in eyes

11:34 <jackygrahamez> I just have a question about what are reasonable expectations

11:36 <jackygrahamez> Reason being this is the second time over the course of a week that a snapshot got corrupted

11:36 <jackygrahamez> So my project is down again

11:37 <freelarry> have no idea jackygrahamez - start of os install here so not at machine - but seems you asking about a virtual private setup i thnk

11:37 <Tank_Master> hey, jack

11:37 <jackygrahamez> They certainly are not meeting MY expectations

11:37 <jackygrahamez> No I'm just asking if I should demand my money back for this month

11:37 <freelarry> suggest contact with provider tech support

11:38 <jackygrahamez> They provide snapshot backups, and that backup is not working twice

11:38 <Tank_Master> any oneline backup service should be good enough to not corrupt your backup

11:38 <Tank_Master> thats the point of a backup, so your information DOESNT get corrupted and lost

11:39 <jackygrahamez> That's what I'm thinking, I contacted them to work on the problem, just wondering if I should get some break for the inconvenience

11:39 <jackygrahamez> I should look over the service agreement closely

11:39 <Tank_Master> ywah

11:39 <Tank_Master> yeah*

11:40 <Tank_Master> so, id this gonna delay when new work will be generated?

11:40 <Tank_Master> is*

11:40 <Tank_Master> :D

11:40 <Tank_Master> &8ball Will jackygrahamez release new work soon?

11:40 <Romulus> Tank_Master: The answer is def-- oooh! shiny thing!

11:40 <jackygrahamez> I'll have to see what they can do, how bad it is

11:41 <Tank_Master> lol

11:41 <Tank_Master> ok

11:42 <jackygrahamez> Maybe I should go on strike for more money

11:42 <Tank_Master> lol

11:56 <Tank_Master> hope she's worth it ;)

11:56 <jackygrahamez> My provider is troubleshooting the restore

11:56 <Tank_Master> good

11:58 <jackygrahamez> I've been using this service for about a year and it seems like a small shop, probably one person because I'm always emailing the same guy

11:58 <Tank_Master> lol

11:59 <jackygrahamez> If I had the money, I would go for a dedicated server

12:44 <freelarry> and of course install boinc

12:47 <jackygrahamez> Quantact, I just spoke with the guy and he is going to do some testing and switch me over to a new server

13:11 <kexman> what good are credits ?

13:19 <desti> credits

13:23 *** Celelaptop has quit IRC

13:25 <PovAddict> kexman: showing you contributed more than... people with less credits than you

13:26 <kexman> aha

13:26 <kexman> nothing more then that  ? :)

13:26 <PovAddict> what do you expect, getting physical prizes? :)

13:26 <PovAddict> who will pay for them? :)

13:27 <PovAddict> most projects are *already* low on money...

13:27 <kexman> aha

13:27 <kexman> what projects would you recommend ?

13:27 <kexman> i am running rosetta@home

13:27 <jackygrahamez> I will bake brownies and ship em ;-)

13:28 <kexman> btw how do you kow the project is "legit" and you are really helping to find cures for cancer

13:28 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez: in exchange for crunching Hydrogen@home? :P

13:28 <kexman> and not helping the army to develope high techk millitary stuff

13:28 <PovAddict> kexman: for a project as big and popular as rosetta... if they weren't legit, somebody would have found out already

13:28 <kexman> someone could make a bruteforce for a password and cloack it into a project :)

13:28 <kexman> probably its just my paranoid thinking but still

13:28 <jackygrahamez> any technology can be used for ill purposes

13:29 <kexman> PovAddict: hmm

13:29 <kexman> well

13:29 <PovAddict> bruteforce for a password? somebody could make a *keylogger* and cloak it for a project; you get credits for each banking password they get from you ;)

13:30 <PovAddict> that's why it's a bad idea to join to alpha projects as soon as they appear, like some people do... no idea what could be behind

13:30 <PovAddict> but really, any project that already managed to get listed on a stats site is probably legit

13:31 <PovAddict> and for "big" ones like Rosetta... they have met personally with BOINC developers so...

13:31 <PovAddict>

13:31 <Romulus> <> (at

13:31 <kexman> PovAddict: probably != legit :)

13:31 <kexman> aha

13:31 <kexman> okay

13:31 <kexman> well but it could be something like i want to crack passwords

13:31 <kexman> i make a project

13:31 <kexman> i give the project hashes and they bruteforce then :)

13:31 <kexman> hehe

13:32 <kexman> well its just my imagination being vivid at this moment :)

13:32 <PovAddict> and wait for the stupid ATAers to join immediately, then bruteforce passwords

13:32 <PovAddict> once you're done with the passwords, you just send a new version of the app... that h4x their computers

13:33 <PovAddict> security discussion from workshop 2006:

13:34 <kexman> k :)

13:34 <kexman> thanx for the help

13:35 <PovAddict> ah here you go:

13:35 <Romulus> Title: Choosing BOINC projects (at

13:39 <kexman> what's with that ?

13:40 <kexman> all those are legit projects ?

13:40 <kexman> i know seti has been there for a while

13:40 <kexman> did it manage to do anything for the peoples ?

13:40 <PovAddict> all those were "verified" by BOINC developers

13:40 <kexman> anything interesting has "come" out of seti@home ?

13:40 <PovAddict> not that I know of

13:42 <kexman> heh

13:42 <kexman> what about any other ?

13:43 <PovAddict> currently, all "known" projects are "legit"... some are doing useless work, there was one doing controversial work (rainbow tables) but none has ever intentionally damaged users' computers

13:43 <kexman> did any of the grid computing projects gave something to humanity ?

13:43 <PovAddict> hmm not sure

13:43 <kexman> rainbow tables = big fucking legit project :) LOL :)

13:43 <wdsmia> asks kexman to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

13:43 * PovAddict pokes Didactylos

13:43 <Romulus> can anyone look at the "ldb>" prompt now

13:43 <Didactylos> Hi

13:44 <PovAddict> Didactylos: does WCG have some page listing real benefits they have *already* produced with distributed computing?

13:45 <PovAddict> or has nothing come out yet?

13:46 <kexman> im off :)

13:46 <kexman> see ya

13:46 <kexman> ohh

13:46 <kexman> wait i want to see this

13:46 <jackygrahamez> This link presents scientific publications that have resulted from research using BOINC

13:46 <Romulus> <> (at

13:46 <kexman> PovAddict: well im interested if all this calculations are usefull or useless

13:47 <Didactylos> PovAddict: only a few scientific papers, and the Help Defeat Cancer project got the data they needed to go to the next stage.

13:47 <PovAddict> kexman: in some cases it's up to you... is there any "use" in searching for prime numbers?

13:48 <kexman> cool

13:48 <kexman> PovAddict: i dont know

13:48 <kexman> i am not a math guy

13:48 <PovAddict> PrimeGrid is useful in the sense that it's not just burning cycles, or searching for primes that are already known, or using inefficient algorithms; but it's up to you to decide if the whole idea of searching for prime numbers is useful

13:48 <kexman> but for mathematicians there probably is

13:49 <Didactylos> The path from WCG's research to an actual drug is many, many years of expensive work.

13:49 <kexman> wcg = rosetta ?

13:49 <kexman> ahh no

13:49 <PovAddict> no, World Community Grid

13:50 <kexman> you say that one is better then rosetta ?

13:50 <Didactylos> Help Defeat Cancer applies computation directly to diagnosis, so it gets real results much more quickly.

13:50 <PovAddict> which has a lot of sub-projects

13:50 <PovAddict> there are no "better" projects :P they do *different* research

13:50 <kexman> well im willikng to contribute to help cure cancer

13:50 <Didactylos> kexman: World Community Grid actually utilises the software produced by the rosetta project for one of their projects.

13:51 <Didactylos> Human Proteome Folding puts it to practical use.

13:51 <kexman> cool

13:52 <PovAddict> Didactylos: so rosetta workunits are mostly just to develop their software?

13:52 <kexman> well i hope that these computers contributing to these projects will really help

13:53 <PovAddict> I remember once they were calculating some protein structure that was already known, to see if the software calculated it correctly; but I don't know if that's what they always do :P

13:53 *** zombie67 has left #boinc

13:53 <kexman> PovAddict: research might mean recalculation :)

13:53 <PovAddict> of course

13:53 <kexman> okay i have to split now

13:53 <kexman> see ya later

13:53 <PovAddict> bye

13:53 <kexman> was nice talking to you

13:53 <kexman> byebye

13:54 *** kexman has left #boinc

13:54 <PovAddict> developing the software definitely *is* useful... without those "useless re-calculations" they wouldn't develop the software correctly, and without that WCG HPF couldn't put it to practical use :)

13:55 <PovAddict> I'm just wondering if Rosetta does its own "practical use" too

13:55 <Didactylos> PovAddict: yes and no.

13:55 <Didactylos> Rosetta are more interested in *how* proteins fold.

13:56 <Didactylos> HPF is more interested in folding proteins and looking at what they fold into.

13:56 <Didactylos> So, Rosetta's research has more interest for diseases that involve folding, or folding failure - such as Alzheimer's.

13:56 <PovAddict> hmm... let's take bets, did DA get pissed or not...

13:57 <PovAddict> &8b did DA get pissed

13:57 <Romulus> PovAddict: _I_ don't know.

13:57 <PovAddict> I say yes... *opens message*

13:58 <Didactylos> What did you do now?

13:58 <Didactylos> The security issue?

14:02 <PovAddict> yeah, not so much the security issue but the way I explained it

14:02 <PovAddict> particularly last line on my explanation

14:13 <CoderForLife> security is rarely convenient (tm)

14:14 <freelarry> oh my those updates have been going long - left in the middle of them to doctors and just got back and still on the last install

14:15 <CoderForLife> bragging or complaining?

14:15 <freelarry> both

14:15 <CoderForLife> maybe you just have fast doctors

14:15 <freelarry> was hoping it would be done so could get boinc started

14:16 <freelarry> lol yeah especially when they aren't feeling on top of the world either

14:16 <jackygrahamez> I envision the developments from these projects will synthesize into some powerful technologies

14:16 <CoderForLife> that would have been a satisfying outcome - what have you done to deserve that?

14:17 <jackygrahamez> When used in combination a tool for designing enzymes and a tool for modeling how that enzyme behaves for instance

14:17 *** Celelaptop has joined #boinc

14:18 <freelarry> humm looks like conflict between M$ malisious software removal and nv firewall

14:19 <jackygrahamez> I don't know if this is a current problem in science, but it feels like there are not enough researchers who know how to utilizes this technology

14:20 <PovAddict> heh, I knew it!

14:20 <jackygrahamez> The other factor, the people responsible for developing technologies have an interest in monitizing their open source internet based project does not allow them to keep trade secrets

14:21 <PovAddict> on my post, I said "(why did I bother saying the solution? It will probably get fixed in a day with an ugly hackish workaround anyway...)"

14:21 <PovAddict> and there he goes... kill connection on <unauthorized/>...

16:42 <CoderForLife> hmm Roxio not running

16:44 <CoderForLife> it's... gone...

16:44 <freelarry> ah ha i see after finally figureing out how to get side panel off =- not memory or cpu - vid card cooling fan not running

16:45 <CoderForLife> you certainly are beset by fan problems

16:51 <CoderForLife> looks interesting - I'll give it a try

16:52 *** wdsmia_w has quit IRC

16:52 <freelarry> true - after market video cooler - no hookup on vid card for it had to go to mb for connector

16:53 <MTughan> Was it a fanless vid card?

16:54 <freelarry> ati 2600 pro so nope - someone decided to try an aftermarket cooler on it

16:55 <MTughan> I would've thought there would be a fan plug.

16:55 <CoderForLife> ack

16:55 <MTughan> Or was it the wrong type or still had the stock fan?

16:55 <CoderForLife> endless prompting - "please insert a blank disk"

16:55 <jackygrahamez> Just a question is someone using Fedora 9 on their project?

16:55 <MTughan> You have a problem with it?

16:56 <jackygrahamez> no I'm just wondering how it is

16:56 <jackygrahamez> I've been using FC8

16:56 <MTughan> Ah... I've run the Fedora 9 GUI from a Live CD, but I don't run any projects.

16:56 <CoderForLife> no good, PovAddict

16:56 <PovAddict> is the right drive selected? (if you have more than one)

16:56 <jackygrahamez> my provider only offers images but I might be able to convince him to give me a 9 if its worth it

16:56 <MTughan> CoderForLife: I'd tell you to get Linux, but that's what you're trying to do, isn't it?

16:57 <PovAddict> lol

16:57 <PovAddict> install linux so you can burn the linux CD

16:57 <CoderForLife> I am burning the DVD on Windows

16:57 <MTughan> Yeah...

16:57 <CoderForLife> I don't have a DVD burner on a Linux box

16:58 <CoderForLife> well Burn CDCC sux

16:59 * CoderForLife looks at MTughan link

16:59 <jackygrahamez> Yes he could probably provide me with a way to install an iso, but I would only ask if it were worth the effort

16:59 <PovAddict> maybe roxio is still running?

16:59 <MTughan> I haven't tried it, note.

16:59 <jackygrahamez> FC8 was work fine

17:00 <CoderForLife> Roxio's folder disappeared

17:00 <CoderForLife> no shortcuts worked

17:00 <jackygrahamez> Just the provider had some bug when I was doing a snapshot

17:00 <PovAddict> uninstalled itself? :P

17:00 <CoderForLife> ok MTughan, you should feel fully disclaimed

17:00 <MTughan> While leaving shortcuts?

17:00 <CoderForLife> Windows control panel add/remove still thinks it's installed

17:01 <jackygrahamez> The control panel did not handle the job queue properly, so it might have been restarting when it was still making the image

17:01 <jackygrahamez> I'll be quiet

17:01 <MTughan> jackygrahamez: We can continue later.

17:55 <jackygrahamez> indeed

17:59 <CoderForLife> so - Stephen suggests DeepBurner

17:59 <CoderForLife> looking

18:01 <CoderForLife> running

18:03 *** Starfury^ has joined #boinc

18:04 <CoderForLife> it doesn't work either - a Winduhs reboot is in order, per PovAddict's previous sugegstion

18:04 <CoderForLife> suggestion, even

18:06 <CoderForLife> bbiaf, hopefully

18:06 *** CoderForLife has quit IRC

18:11 <freelarry> humm machine going good on reinstall - so something was wrong with the settings after removing nv firewall

18:11 <freelarry> didn't allow a reinstall during the repair phase so hope its good

18:11 <freelarry> if not delete all and new install again

19:31 <PovAddict> so we'll tell you "happy half-century" next year? :P

19:31 <KathrynM> I heard that PovAddict

19:31 <PovAddict> KathrynM: so?

19:31 <KathrynM> :)

19:31 <Romulus> too bad for it

19:31 <KathrynM> I no longer age

19:32 <PovAddict> did I say you were...

19:32 <KathrynM> It's all in the kids imagination (especially the kids that call me Old Lady in Korean)

19:32 <PovAddict> lol

19:32 <PovAddict> yah it's all imagination

19:32 <PovAddict> and biological processes

19:34 <xcamel> time and gravity get everybody eventually..

19:38 <MTughan> Oh, anyone know why someone would want a cordless trackball?

19:41 <PovAddict> or an optical keyboard

19:41 <PovAddict> XD

19:41 <PovAddict> "optical and cordless mouse and keyboard" oops

19:41 <MTughan> lol

19:41 <MTughan> Uses optical to see whether a key was pressed.

19:45 <MTughan> Does he get free oil? 'Course, he'd have to refine it to gas first...

19:46 <PovAddict> free gas yep

19:47 <PovAddict> he could get paid for his oil in both dollars and car fuel :)

19:47 <MTughan> True.

19:47 <MTughan> Helps with the way gas prices have spiked.

19:48 <MTughan> Just a few years ago, we were paying ~60 cents per litre of gas. Now we're up around $1.30 per litre.

19:48 <PovAddict> o.0

19:49 <MTughan> Exactly.

19:59 <MTughan> WTF? "Advanced digital radio signal needs no line of sight and lets you work up to two metres from the receiver - through cups, piles of papers or the thickest sandwich"

20:00 <MTughan> From a wireless trackball description...

20:00 <MTughan> You're operating on a sandwich?

20:00 <PovAddict> mmm sandwich

20:01 * KathrynM is hungry

20:01 <KathrynM> bbiab...  breakfast

20:01 * PovAddict wonders how he manages not to get fat

20:01 <jackygrahamez__> Do they have BBQ ribs in Korea?

20:01 <KathrynM> you can get them at TGIFriday

20:02 <jackygrahamez__> with a side of Kiamchi?

20:02 <PovAddict> especially considering how much excercise I do (not)

20:02 <KathrynM> If you asked, probably :P

20:02 <KathrynM> pizza comes with a side of pickles

20:02 <MTughan> Oh yeah... At a park near here, they have a "Rib 'n Roll" fest. Ribs from places around here with (often crappy) music. Really good ribs...

20:02 * KathrynM is jealous

20:02 <MTughan> And jackygrahamez__: That's kimchi.

20:02 <KathrynM> lol

20:02 * PovAddict is actually having weight problems...

20:02 <KathrynM> I knew what he meant

20:03 <PovAddict> not weighing *enough* for my height

20:03 * KathrynM wishes she had that problem

20:03 <MTughan> I've gotten used to a lot of these terms with a Korean around.

20:03 <PovAddict> lol

20:03 <KathrynM> I can send you some of my excess

20:03 <MTughan> PovAddict: Tell me about it. 5' 4" and around 205lbs.

20:03 <PovAddict> KathrynM: you're late for that, a few people already offered that

20:03 <MTughan> Doesn't help that I've been munching on chocolate...

20:04 <PovAddict> MTughan: metric plz

20:04 <MTughan> &math convert 205 pounds kg

20:05 <MTughan> lol

20:05 <PovAddict> there's somebody *else* in queue to send me excess weight?

20:05 <MTughan> Sure.

20:05 <PovAddict> lol

20:05 * KathrynM will reveal she's 5'6''

20:05 <KathrynM> but that's it

20:05 <MTughan> You won't tell us you're 300 pounds? xD

20:06 <MTughan> jk

20:06 * PovAddict notes MTughan earned a kick

20:06 * PovAddict will brb

20:06 <KathrynM> in the balls

20:06 <MTughan> That's what's great about IRC!

20:07 <MTughan> You can make mildly crude jokes like that without much consequence.

20:08 <MTughan> No threats though, because IPs can be traced.

20:08 <PovAddict> yep

20:09 <PovAddict> that's why whoever finds a way to kick somebody in the balls over the Internet will be sooo rich

20:09 <KathrynM> lol

20:09 <MTughan> For a time. People will then go through anonymous gateways.

20:09 <MTughan> &google JAP

20:10 <PovAddict> in many acses, those who deserve a ball-kick are also too stupid to use a gateway

20:10 <PovAddict> cases*

20:11 <MTughan> Fair enough.

20:11 <MTughan> I'm not. :D

20:11 <PovAddict> nope

20:11 <PovAddict> that's why when such kicking mechanism appears, we should kick you as many times as possible until you set up the gateway

20:12 <MTughan> Well, I'm not using one right now, because there is no way to deliver a physical kick in the balls over the Internet at this point.

20:12 <Romulus> Now clean this up"

20:12 <MTughan> Oh, I'd disconnect first.

21:20 <freelarry> question -is the 64 bit windows version really compatible with both xp64 and vista?

21:31 *** BB_Work has quit IRC

21:35 <Tank_Master> version of what?

21:35 <MTughan> I assume BOINC.

21:36 <Tank_Master> any progran should work on both (unless it is spifically changing the OS version and is writen my the programmer to only install on that particular OS)

21:36 <freelarry> boinc manager for windows i think 5.10.45?

21:36 <Tank_Master> checking*

21:36 <Tank_Master> yes

21:36 <Tank_Master> BOINC will run on both

21:37 <freelarry> was wondring as had a lot of system crashes while running on xp64

21:37 <freelarry> but not sure if boinc or the setup of windoze

21:37 <Tank_Master> its been stable on my server 2008 x64

21:37 <freelarry> dam crashed again during driver install

21:48 <efc> I'm putting xp (found a cd laying around) on an old box to see how I like it..

21:58 * Soul_keeper cringes

22:02 <efc> Seems ok, of course I never actually use that box for anything

22:02 <efc> if not for the quad core problems, you'd have to pry 2k out of my cold dead fingers

22:09 <PovAddict> freelarry: XP 64-bit isn't completely stable, *particularly* due to drivers

22:09 <PovAddict> Vista has way better 64-bit support

22:10 <PovAddict> ...or Linux ;)

22:27 <freelarry> and of course my x64 is version 1.0 so have to get thru some headaches to get to updates

23:20 <Soul_keeper> if they stop this baseball game because it's raining i'm gonna flip

23:21 <Soul_keeper> baseball players will then be officially weaker than golfers

23:24 <efc> They usually do don't they?

23:33 <Soul_keeper> i guess, but it's weak

23:33 <Soul_keeper> that's why the terrorist see us as an easy target

23:34 <Soul_keeper> get a little water on us and we go home with our tail between the legs

23:34 <MTughan> Have you also considered what rain might do to the flight path of a baseball?

23:35 <Soul_keeper> add complexity where only the best team would win

23:35 <Soul_keeper> it don't stop football players ...

23:36 <MTughan> No, but that ball also has more mass.

23:36 <MTughan> And it's not being thrown at you at ~90mph.

23:36 <Soul_keeper> baseball still works in the rain regardless

23:37 <Soul_keeper> just my opinion on the matter

23:38 <MTughan> Yeah. It probably doesn't affect it much, but it could be enough.

23:38 <Soul_keeper> they get payed millions of dollars and they are scared of a little weather

23:38 <MTughan> Well, there is one thing: I don't blame them for not playing in lightning.

23:38 <Soul_keeper> lol i do

23:39 <PovAddict> whole new meaning to "strike"?

23:39 <MTughan> lol

23:39 <Soul_keeper> snow, rain, hail, dark, hot, etc.  should all be fare game

23:39 <MTughan> Tornado?

23:39 <PovAddict> that's gray area

23:40 <Soul_keeper> you just gotta play thru it, that's the american way, tough it out

23:41 <MTughan> Apparently, it's not the American way if they stop.

23:41 <Soul_keeper> puljos broke our pitcher's nose the other day, and sprained our catcher's ankle

23:42 <Soul_keeper> hit the ball right into his face

23:42 <Soul_keeper> then when he was coming home, ran the catcher over

23:42 <Soul_keeper> now that's baseball

23:43 <efc> Hey jackygrahamex__, have you looked into Ruthenium based water splitting?

23:43 <Soul_keeper> if you can't get out of the way, and get your nose broken that's cause you're weak and deserved it

23:43 <MTughan> Riiight...

23:43 <Soul_keeper> :)

23:43 <efc> Soul: heard about the people suing little league and louisville slugger for using aluminum bats cuz you can hit the ball too hard?

23:43 <MTughan> That's a really bad joke... In Audacity, for confirmation, you click a button that says "Audacious!"

23:44 <Soul_keeper> efc, yeah that's stupid liberals

23:44 <Soul_keeper> the same idiots that sue mccdonalds because the coffee is too hot, or the same ones that lobby government to card you to get a pack of matches at the gas station

23:44 <PovAddict> MTughan: see about box

23:45 <MTughan> That's where I was reminded of it.

23:45 <Soul_keeper> liberals

23:48 <MTughan> Yeah, I was updating my sister's computer and wondered if there was an update for Audacity, so I had to go to the about box. New minor version of the beta.
