04:30 <KathrynM> mornin

04:32 <desti> l0

04:37 <CoderForLife> morning KathrynM desti

04:38 <KathrynM> I had a sausage mcmuffin w/ egg for breakfast

04:38 <KathrynM> now I"m eating tofu for dinner to make up for it

04:38 <CoderForLife> McBreakfast, eh?

04:39 <KathrynM> yup

04:39 <desti>

04:39 <Romulus> <> (at

04:39 <CoderForLife> what exactly is tofu, besides an unlikely combination of characters?

04:39 <KathrynM> bean curd

04:39 <KathrynM> desti, you wouldn't believe the paranoia over us beef here

04:39 * CoderForLife sits, blinking

04:40 <KathrynM> lol

04:40 <KathrynM> it has no flavor of its own

04:40 <Romulus> there's some 80+ now)

04:40 <KathrynM> I made a kimchi like sauce with hot peper paste, garlic, vinegar and sesame oil

04:40 <CoderForLife> it had to be one extreme or the other

04:40 <KathrynM> marinated it all day

04:40 <KathrynM> then briefly fried it

04:40 <KathrynM> "it's good for health"

04:41 <CoderForLife> um

04:41 <KathrynM> favorite phrase here

04:42 <CoderForLife> I guess we'd say "whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger"

04:43 <CoderForLife> about the same =)

04:43 <CoderForLife> and as they say in Korea - "meh"

04:43 <KathrynM> :)

04:44 <CoderForLife> so I get on the jet in 9 hours

04:45 <KathrynM> He's leaving on a jet plane....

04:45 <CoderForLife> yup

04:47 <CoderForLife> well - time for my McBreakfast - brb

04:54 *** Aruzo has joined #boinc

04:55 *** [RKN]frost has joined #boinc

05:05 * CoderForLife sits down with his tofu breakfast, made to look like a McDonald's sausage, egg and cheese biscuit

05:05 <CoderForLife> it's amazing what they can do with tasteless bean curd these days

05:05 <KathrynM> lol

05:07 * CoderForLife looks for the lost databases on the laptop

05:11 <CoderForLife> more exactly, I'm making the computer look...

05:12 <CoderForLife> I'm finishing off this piece of cullinary engineering

05:13 <KathrynM> wash it down with a grape soda?

05:13 <KathrynM> (had grape soda at TGIFridays yesterday)

05:18 <CoderForLife> grape soda at night, Coca-Cola in the morning

05:19 <CoderForLife> caffeine, ya know

05:28 <CoderForLife> ~~~~ we re-join "Sherlock Coder and the Case of the Missing Databases", already in progress ~~~~

05:28 <CoderForLife> dang

05:28 <CoderForLife> I wonder where they went?

05:55 <FreeLarry58> the db cemetary?

06:08 <CoderForLife> I'm wondering

06:08 <CoderForLife> morning FreeLarry58

07:56 <dizzie> Houston we got a problem... Stupid Vista reports my bootdrive to be 7373GB (i wish hehe)

07:56 *** infinisoft has quit IRC

07:59 <CoderForLife> morning dizzie

07:59 <dizzie> Morning CFL

08:00 <dizzie> &math convert 23 C F

08:00 <Romulus> dizzie: 73.4

08:00 <CoderForLife> Our one Vista machine has been having problems lately

08:00 <dizzie> 74F here atm ;) a bit warm hehe

08:00 <dizzie> Vista i just stupid :)

08:00 <CoderForLife> kinda of gets deadlocked among applications - can't bring up Task Manager to see what's happening

08:01 <dizzie> BitLocker is what i dont use, it hangs my system

08:01 <CoderForLife> had to just power off the last couple of times and restart the machine

08:02 <CoderForLife> maybe all this will be fixed by Vista 3.0

08:03 <dizzie> Windows 7 (as its been called) will be released in 2009/2010

08:04 <dizzie> Totally ripoff from OS X and Gnome

08:04 <CoderForLife> that will be Vista 2.0 =)

08:04 <dizzie> Nothing new as far as i can see it hehe

08:04 <dizzie> Money release like ME was hehe

08:04 <xcamel> ip kill >>

08:04 <dizzie> (M)oney (E)ngine :p

08:04 <dizzie> Hello xcamel :)

08:04 <CoderForLife> morning xcamel

08:06 <CoderForLife> "plinked" - thx

08:06 <xcamel> mo0rnin

08:18 <xcamel> so.. you going to make the "Great Wall of Cincy" movie?

08:25 *** quail has quit IRC

08:34 <KathrynM> &nn

08:34 <Romulus> Live long and crunch!

08:34 * KathrynM notes that she's already away

08:34 * KathrynM makes it so

09:04 <CoderForLife> cya KathrynM

09:05 <xcamel> peaking back in?

09:05 <CoderForLife> sorry Jay, there won't be any budget left for a movie

09:05 <xcamel> not even youtube?

09:05 <CoderForLife> not unless there's revenue involved

09:06 <xcamel> btw.. I managed to reboot the modbook, and instantly turn off bluetooth - and fixed the problem

09:06 <xcamel> but it took a bunch of tries..

09:06 <CoderForLife> all in all, it's quite depressing, and I have this eerie feeling that there's another shoe to drop somewhere

09:07 <xcamel> insurance won't touch it?

09:07 * CoderForLife "ejects" his Nano from his PC to take on his trip

09:09 <xcamel> well at least you have public utilities, and you didn't lose the well or septic system

09:09 <CoderForLife> true

09:10 <CoderForLife> but I'm worried that the construction will crush the utilities out front and up the driveway

09:11 *** quail has joined #boinc

09:11 <xcamel> UFO will mark them all to be avoided...

09:11 <xcamel> er UFPO

09:13 <CoderForLife> you can't avoid driving on top of them in the asphalt driveway - I can "armor" the front yard with 3/4" plywood once we plot the utilities

09:14 <CoderForLife> I'm also looking at dirt disposal onsite rather than having the big trucks come down the drive, and pay disposal/fuel to take away my dirt

09:15 <CoderForLife> I'm just a bit resentful at taking assets and pouring them into the ground

09:17 <CoderForLife> the neighbor told me that the water line had been broken in the front a few years back (Hmm, not disclosed to me during purchase...) - construction traffic will pass right over that area

09:18 <CoderForLife> sorry - I'll hush up now

09:27 <quail> CoderForLife: howdy, how are you?

09:28 <quail> CoderForLife: how were your steaks?

09:31 <xcamel> that might bring up some title insurance issues...

09:34 <CoderForLife> I'm printing out the house insurance policy to give it a careful read on the jet

09:37 <CoderForLife> so quail - to answer your questions - not fine and fine

09:38 * CoderForLife goes to looks for spare AAA batteries

09:42 <CoderForLife> xcamel - how does title insurance figure in?  I thought I had the title free and clear of liens, but Mother Nature has a big mechanics lien on me?

09:46 <quail> CoderForLife: sorry to hear you not fairing to well

09:47 <CoderForLife> just a continuation of the same issues

10:40 <dizzie> Hoax of the year? The stupid alien.

10:41 <BB_Work> Mornin

10:42 <CoderForLife> hello BB_Work

10:42 <BB_Work> Howdy

10:42 <Romulus> yeah, saw that project and go back to "how much can go looking for a few days ago

10:44 <dizzie> Morning (? 4:43pm here) :p

10:48 <CoderForLife> time moves slowly at the Grand Canyon

10:49 <dizzie> Guess so :)

10:50 <KathrynM> a data center in Texas exploded...

10:50 <Romulus> don't like them bulls in Japan. Kobe Camels.

10:50 <KathrynM> just got an email from the admin of a site I mod for

10:50 <dizzie> Exploded, like how?

10:50 <KathrynM> The physical building that houses our servers is located in Texas, and we have just received word that it exploded.  They are saying a wire shorting out or definitely something electrical caused this explosion.

10:50 <CoderForLife> too much data too fast?

10:51 <CoderForLife> dated April 1?

10:51 <dizzie> Blame AMD they get overheated too easy :)

10:51 <KathrynM> no, the site is really down

10:52 <dizzie> Funny way to use the term/word "explode"

10:52 * KathrynM wonders waht company owns that (former) datacenter

10:54 <CoderForLife> well - it is 7500 or 9000+ customers

10:54 <CoderForLife> we need the facts, people!

10:56 <CoderForLife> the link I posted

10:56 <Romulus> mahine chipset didn't like either.

12:37 <PovAddict> :/

13:53 <MTughan> Besides Jay...

13:54 *** wdsmia has joined #Boinc

13:56 <MTughan> Aw...

13:57 <MTughan> Anyone know how long 6.x.x is going to be in beta? Will the first stable be a 6.2.x?

14:04 *** wdsmia_ has quit IRC

14:08 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

14:08 <MTughan> 'lo zombie

14:08 <zombie67> hi MT!

14:10 <zombie67> i want to reset my LTD for a prject.  how do I do that again?

14:16 <MTughan> LTD?

14:16 <Romulus> Somebody said LTD is -26960, MTughan

14:16 <MTughan> Rommie...

14:16 <zombie67> long term debt

14:17 <MTughan> Only way I know of is to shut down BOINC and edit cc_config.xml, I think it is.

14:17 <MTughan> PovAddict would have more ideas.

14:17 <MTughan> OS X, right?

14:18 <MTughan> client_state.xml, sorry.

14:18 <MTughan> Yeah, you can store it in there.

14:19 <zombie67> thanks.  i'll look

14:20 <xcamel> 6.4.2 has been running just fine against regular projects..

14:21 <xcamel> er make that 6.2.4

14:38 <zombie67> another suggestion for the mac manager:  buttons on the projects page to reset LTD.

14:45 <PovAddict> boinc_cmd has a command to change project debts

14:45 <PovAddict> however, Mac builds don't come with boinccmd usually... :/

14:46 <zombie67> yeah, how weird is that?

14:46 <zombie67> it comes with the linux version, riight?

14:47 <zombie67> simap is issuing work

14:47 <PovAddict> and PG challenge is done

14:47 <PovAddict> so...

14:48 * PovAddict attaches SIMAP

14:51 <PovAddict> daemon status shows 0 unsent

14:53 <MTughan> boinccmd uses GUIRPC, right?

14:55 <PovAddict> yes

14:55 <MTughan> Know which source file(s) it's in?

14:55 <MTughan> (Currently running an svn update)

14:55 <PovAddict> boinc/lib/boinccmd.C

14:55 <MTughan> K, thanks.

14:55 <PovAddict> although there you'd probably just see a function call to set_debts or similar

14:56 <PovAddict> boinc/lib/gui_rpc_client_ops.C would have the code for such function

14:56 <MTughan> There's a set_debts function or something like that? Cool...

14:56 <PovAddict> well that's how all the RPCs are... methods in RPC_CLIENT in gui_rpc_client.h

14:57 <MTughan> Yeah, right...

14:58 <MTughan> Yep, rpc.set_debts(projects), where projects is a vector<PROJECT>.

14:59 <MTughan> Just need the master URL and the short- and long-term debts.

14:59 <PovAddict> set_debts will only read master_url, long_term_debt, and short_term_debt from the PROJECT structure

14:59 <MTughan> Or maybe not even that...

14:59 <PovAddict> ...which is what you just said

14:59 <PovAddict> <.<

14:59 <MTughan> Oh, it does need short_term_debt? If it's not set, it doesn't just keep the value from before?

15:03 <MTughan> I'll need to change my BOINCProject class then... No debts.

15:04 <MTughan> I do initialize them from PROJECT* pointers though, so it's not too hard at all to grab debts. They get sent in RPC requests?

15:09 <PovAddict> look at set_debts actual code

15:09 <PovAddict> and get_project_status does return the current debts, yeah...

15:13 <PovAddict> "blogging is a fairly poor medium in general for discussions: it's mostly one way communication between a speaker and an audience where the audience can't "see" each other and the speaker has already left by the time the audience arrives. it's really difficult to have a reasoned conversation in such a venue."

19:24 <Didactylos> Does anyone really *know* what's happening with the CA certificates in BOINC?

19:24 <PovAddict> which certs?

19:24 <Didactylos> Lots of code changes designed to "fix" it. Lots of different ways to package it.

19:24 <Didactylos> But CA errors keep coming in a steady stream.

19:25 <KathrynM> does the word mess ring a bell?

19:25 <Didactylos> That's what I call a polite way of putting it.

19:25 <PovAddict> like...

19:25 <PovAddict> SSL certs?

19:25 * KathrynM always tries to be polite :)

19:26 <Didactylos> CA. Certificate Authority.

19:26 <Didactylos> Didn't think I needed to be more specific.

19:27 <PovAddict> well, apparently mo.v was having problems with the Windows installer giving a security warning, even though it's signed with a Thawte cert

19:29 <Didactylos> Warning, not error - I assume. That would be normal....

19:31 <PovAddict> 'The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software? Publisher - Unknown Publisher. This file does not have a valid digital signature that verifies its publisher. You should only run software from publishers you trust.'

19:31 <Didactylos> So, an error. What did the certificate chain show?

19:32 <Didactylos> Unkonwn Publisher is a bad sign. Was it just not signed properly?

19:32 <Didactylos> This alpha related?

19:32 <KathrynM> I htink so

19:32 <KathrynM> Mo V reported it on BOINC alpha

19:32 <Romulus> i'm on my "server" without an GUI (and with a large trout

19:33 <KathrynM> lol rommie

19:33 <Didactylos> In that case, I no longer care ;-)

19:33 <PovAddict> well, the user can run it even if it's unsigned

19:33 <KathrynM> spekaing of security, it would be nice if Rom provided a MD5 for the Linux sh

19:34 <PovAddict> KathrynM: there is a core_client_md5 file, outdated as hell; I once told DA to update it and he said "what md5 file?"

19:34 <PovAddict> I clarified, and he added the new files to it

19:34 <KathrynM> lol

19:34 <PovAddict> that one time... and not anymore

19:34 <KathrynM> why not put the md5 on the download page.  that's what E@H does with their beta packages

19:35 <PovAddict> 5.10.13 latest listed

19:35 <KathrynM> heh, we've had what? 50 releases since then

19:35 <PovAddict> in theory, the Unix .sh files could check themselves

19:36 <Didactylos> I'm not sure why there's a SEA at all.

19:36 <PovAddict> well, that's a whole new question...

19:36 <PovAddict> bbiab

19:36 <Didactylos> My distro-wise aquaintances tell me a tarball and ports are the way to go.

19:37 <Didactylos> Me, I know nothing about that stuff.

19:37 <KathrynM> Eric M mentioned to me that he thinks Eric K is moving in that direction with the changes to the automake file.

19:37 <KathrynM> me?  I don't have a clue.

19:39 <Didactylos> Good to know it's being taken care of.

19:40 <KathrynM> for the sake of the noobs, I hope they keep it friendly.  not that the sea is all that friendly to begin with

19:43 <Didactylos> That's the whole point, really. BOINC is too complicated to install properly. The SEA compromises by doing a half-arsed job.

19:43 <Didactylos> But a decent package manager will hide all the pain from view.

19:44 <Didactylos> Now please excuse me while I dump untested code on a production server....

19:45 <Didactylos> This is what the wee small hours of Monday morning was invented for.

19:46 <KathrynM> lol

19:47 <Tank_Master> Id just like it if BOINC wouldnt use all of one of my CPUs juts because it has several hunderead WUs queued up

20:04 <PovAddict> Carl just told me he's considering using a custom system for QCN instead of BOINC...

20:08 <Tank_Master> :P

20:08 <Tank_Master> as long as it works...

21:52 <CoderOnTheRoad> lop off a few zeroes

21:52 <CoderOnTheRoad> 6% humidity

21:52 <PovAddict> 10C? seems it warmed a bit

21:53 <PovAddict> omg @ your humidity

21:53 <CoderOnTheRoad> "but it's a dry heat"

21:53 <PovAddict> we wouldn't survive with that

21:53 <CoderOnTheRoad> I got very thristy waking from my room to the meet-greet-eat

21:54 <PovAddict> as a species, people from Buenos Aires can't stand such low humidity

21:54 <CoderOnTheRoad> lol  .. a species ..

21:55 <CoderOnTheRoad> you will be assimilated and your species distinctiveness will be added to the collective

21:55 <PovAddict> with this cold weather,

21:56 <CoderOnTheRoad> um.. isn't it winter now?

21:56 <PovAddict> we already had cases of some people unfortunately removing themselves from the gene pool

21:56 <PovAddict> not due to the cold weather itself

21:56 <CoderOnTheRoad> go get some genes from your newly discovered neighbors

21:56 <PovAddict> but due to carbon monoxide

21:57 <PovAddict> every winter the same thing

21:58 <CoderOnTheRoad> from the shallow end of the pool?

22:00 <PovAddict> I gotta figure out how to get my printer in the network...

22:00 <PovAddict> samba looked like a *huge* mess to configure

22:02 *** wdsmia_ has quit IRC

22:02 *** wdsmia_ has joined #Boinc

22:03 <CoderOnTheRoad> yeah, I finally got samba in general working - never tried printing

22:04 <PovAddict> printing is the only thing I need from samba

22:05 <CoderOnTheRoad> no experience here - no advice to offer

22:06 <PovAddict> only printer in the house connected to a Linux machine, I somehow need to allow a Windows XP computer and a Mac laptop to print to it...

22:08 <CoderOnTheRoad> unless you can IP attach it, I'm thinking samba

22:09 <PovAddict> nope, USB printer

22:09 <PovAddict> no network features built-in

22:10 <CoderOnTheRoad> rats

22:12 <CoderOnTheRoad> I'm going to shudderdown here - tc
