12:57 <hawmps> work is a bad word

12:59 <Tank_Master> ahh

12:59 <Tank_Master> and I read it as "orgasum" :P

13:00 <Romulus> They are saying a wire so maybe fixed

13:05 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

13:32 *** Bravewolf has joined #boinc

13:37 <Bravewolf> What is the meaning of "Validate error"? CPU time wasted?

13:38 <Tank_Master> means the result you returned did not match the result the other person retuned

13:38 <Tank_Master> and so yes, it was tossed out

13:40 <Tank_Master> you can go to their firum and ask why, and if a lot of other people are getting the same thing, youll see them complaining about it there as well

13:40 <Tank_Master> forum*

13:49 <Bravewolf> Tank_Master: ok, thanks. little disappointment ... wasted 12 hours of cpu time...

13:50 <Tank_Master> yeah, it happens, unfortently

13:51 <FreeLarry58> anyone know where to edit the default password for selecting machine?

13:52 <FreeLarry58> didn't use to come up with anything for password till version 6.2.6

13:56 <Tank_Master> for the loacl comp?

13:56 <FreeLarry58> yes local comp to remote

13:56 <Tank_Master> it should have always asked for a pw before

13:57 <Romulus> we need an inverter

13:57 <FreeLarry58> yes earlier versions left pw as blanck now in 6.2.6 it puts in a row of dots

13:57 <FreeLarry58> prefer blank so can type pw in instead of highlight to delete and type

13:57 *** PovAdct_w has joined #boinc

13:57 <Tank_Master> do you have the 2 files in there on the remote host?

13:58 <FreeLarry58> not sure

13:58 <Tank_Master> the 2 .cfg files

13:58 <FreeLarry58> humm i know i followed PovAdct_w when first setting them up long ago

13:59 <Tank_Master> then you probably do, and it might have changed in v6

14:00 <FreeLarry58> remote_hosts.cfg is one gui_rpc_auth.cfg is other

14:01 <FreeLarry58> on each remote

14:01 <FreeLarry58> do i need to edit them on local?

14:02 <Tank_Master> shouldnt need to

14:03 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

14:05 <FreeLarry58> interesting on local don't see the files anymore

14:07 *** Lorvija has joined #boinc

14:07 <peternix> I should be able to get into the top 50 computers

14:08 <peternix> I have an intel core 2 quad core @ 2.5 ghz

14:08 <peternix> 4 gigs of ram

14:08 <peternix> running linux 2.6.24

14:09 <FreeLarry58> lol only one processor?

14:09 <PovAdct_w> top 50 of what project?

14:09 <FreeLarry58> wish i was as optimistic

14:10 <peternix> seti

14:10 <FreeLarry58> can't afford the dual processor boards some are running to get 8 cores on a machine or more

14:10 <FreeLarry58> ahh

14:10 <FreeLarry58> at least i cant

14:10 <peternix> there's a guy there with lower stats who is #31

14:10 * peternix thinks he's the same but 2.4 ghz

14:11 <FreeLarry58> using crunchr3 optimized clients the i assume

14:11 <PovAdct_w> seti website is down, can't check

14:11 <peternix> different OS and probably less ram

14:11 <peternix> FreeLarry58: the enhanced version of seti

14:11 <PovAdct_w> the "enhanced" app is the only seti app

14:11 <FreeLarry58> yah i just use the defaults so not going far for me

14:12 <peternix> btw, I have some criticisms of seti's concept that seem really simple

14:12 <FreeLarry58> down -- oh right tuesday maintenace at seti

14:12 <peternix> first off, what if they find a signal but the aliens are sweeping the sky, so when they check the second time, of course, the signal is gone?

14:12 <FreeLarry58> noticed they went to set credits

14:13 <PovAdct_w> I have an even simpler criticism

14:13 <peternix> on their site, they claim that it can take up to 6 months before they can verify with the arecibo telescope

14:13 <PovAdct_w> what if aliens have their own SETI@Home-like project, waiting for *us* to send signals to them?

14:13 <peternix> doubtful

14:13 <PovAdct_w> why?

14:13 <PovAdct_w> are we sending any signals?

14:13 <peternix> they'd probably have both, if that were the case

14:13 <peternix> we have in the past

14:13 <PovAdct_w> do we have both now?

14:13 <peternix> voyager, pioneer, and hitler

14:14 <peternix> also

14:14 <peternix> we are assuming they have much better technology than us

14:14 <jackygrahamez> What do you do once you find Aliens? set up a phone sex service?

14:14 <PovAdct_w> yeah a pretty silly assumption if you ask me

14:15 <peternix> in that case, they would probably have noticed space craft or at least the ISS

14:15 <peternix> oh yeah

14:15 <peternix> and the arecibo's first transmission was a signal into space

14:15 <peternix> but these are estimated to take 25 000 years to arrive anywhere interesting

14:15 <PovAdct_w> yes

14:16 <PovAdct_w> back then we didn't have SETI@Home, why should we assume aliens were listening to that signal?

14:16 <PovAdct_w> time to send another

14:16 <FreeLarry58> ahh just watch scifi channel -- they will tell your aliens are already amongst us

14:17 <peternix> would be nice to actually have a transmitter constantly transmitting signals

14:17 <FreeLarry58> ;)

14:17 <peternix> if they would divert funds from Iraq to science programs, we'd have these things

14:17 <peternix> hopefully, the competition will heat up once china starts challenging the rest of the world

14:18 <peternix> they appear to be going it all alone

14:18 <jackygrahamez> I personally don't like the idea of advertising our location in the celestial neighborhood

14:18 <peternix> which is good, because much of the world hates them, rofl

14:18 * FreeLarry58 is staying away from politics and religion

14:19 <FreeLarry58> tc all have to check on the mother in law

14:20 *** PovAdct_w has quit IRC

14:20 <peternix> so many interesting programs were nixed

14:20 <peternix> they had plans for doing things in the 70s that we can't even do now-a-days

14:20 <peternix> like the manned Venus fly-by

14:20 <peternix> we can't even get that right today

14:20 <peternix> not because we don't have the technology, but because there's no pressure

14:20 <peternix> NASA is going at a snail's pace, imho

14:21 <jackygrahamez> Maybe Scaled Composites will beat them to Mars

14:21 <peternix> ahaha

14:21 <peternix> that would be a trip

14:22 <peternix> most interesting thing to come out of nasa in a while is the new horizons space craft

14:22 * peternix looks forward to seeing photos of pluto

14:24 <jackygrahamez> Well there are plenty of interesting people who work at NASA but have their hands tied behind their back. I've been corresponding with this guy

14:48 <bryanUC> is there a way to identify hosts that are running linux + wine + windows XP?

14:48 <bryanUC> or do they just always come up winXP

15:04 *** Bravewolf has quit IRC

15:10 <FreeLarry58> bryanUC i think it just reports win version even if under wine

15:11 <FreeLarry58> would be like trying to identify virtual machine i think

18:03 <Bravewolf> Hello all! Is it normal that work units are 60-90 days long?

18:04 <PovAddict> hmm no that seems too short to be climateprediction

18:04 <PovAddict> ;)

18:05 <Bravewolf> Really?

18:05 <PovAddict> nah, actually 90 days seems normal

18:06 <peternix> how long you think that setiathome will stay the leader?

18:08 <Bravewolf> PovAddict: uhm... so I think it's better to choose another project... I'm not sure that it would be so helpful to complete only 2 work units (dualcore)

18:08 <PovAddict> Bravewolf: why not?

18:08 <PovAddict> two workunits mean two whole climate models simulating a whole century

18:10 <Bravewolf> PovAddict: because if something goes wrong there were a complete waste of energy. Using rosetta@home one my work units was reject... 12 hours wasted. I cannot immagine wasting 1000+ hours of cpu...

18:10 <Bravewolf> PovAddict: because if something goes wrong there were a complete waste of energy. Using rosetta@home one my work units was reject... 12 hours wasted. I cannot immagine wasting 1000+ hours of cpu...

18:10 <PovAddict> well sure...

18:10 <PovAddict> you do need to "babysit" the workunit a bit

18:11 <PovAddict> I ran a few CPDN workunits...

18:11 <PovAddict> on the first one... I aborted it before the first trickle, I couldn't be bothered with it so slow :P

18:11 <PovAddict> on the second one... failed after 300 hours

18:11 <PovAddict> (but it did give me some credits)

18:12 <PovAddict> third one was a success, even though I took some months

18:12 <PovAddict> peternix:

18:12 <Romulus> <> (at

18:12 <PovAddict> peternix: it's already got less than 50%; a good thing in my opinion

18:16 <Bravewolf> PovAddict: probably CPDN workunits are not suitable for home computers, but for office computers (most of time they are switched on during night... nonsense).

18:16 <PovAddict> my home computer is on 24/7

18:17 <Bravewolf> not mine :-)

18:17 <PovAddict> - I don't pay for the electricity

18:17 <PovAddict> - I run servers on it :)

18:18 <Romulus> brb - need a tester, lemme know : )

18:18 <PovAddict> - it's easier to just turn off the screen and go to sleep than to have to close all stuff and shutdown... plus then in the morning I read what happened in chat while I was asleep

18:18 *** xcamel has quit IRC

18:23 <Bravewolf> PovAddict: ah...but I have to pay electricity... so the whole speech will change...

18:23 <KathrynM> Not know what happened in chat overnight?

18:23 <KathrynM> How could people even think of it?

18:23 <PovAddict> KathrynM: well do you remember what mweltin said about it?

18:24 <PovAddict> "if it didn't happen while I was at my desk, it didn't ever happen at all"

18:24 <KathrynM> lol

18:24 <KathrynM> I guess it was easier to reassign the ticket milestones than to actually fix the stuff

18:24 <PovAddict> yep

18:25 <PovAddict> that made me feel as if BOINC was officially my unpaid w#$%

18:25 <PovAddict> I have to deal with silly coworkers/bosses/decisions there too :P

18:52 <surrealillusion> i was gonna buy a new case

18:53 <surrealillusion> for my P5E-VM HDMI board

18:53 <PovAddict> lol

18:53 <surrealillusion> the power connector broke on the Antec 1380 I had for it

18:53 <surrealillusion> ...

18:53 <PovAddict> my DNS is slow as hell

18:53 <PovAddict> and BOINC manager hangs >_<

18:53 <PovAddict> hmm does RCN have checkpoints?

18:54 <surrealillusion> but i'll wait until i pay off this months' credit card bill lol

18:54 <surrealillusion> i let my wrt54gs take care of that

18:56 <PovAddict> it does

18:59 <surrealillusion> i can't wait to get my next q6600 rig going

19:09 <FreeLarry58> how was w*- PovAddict

22:48 <Soul_keeper> any of you people mechanics ?

22:48 *** lkjasa_ has quit IRC

22:55 <zombie67> not really.

22:55 <zombie67> i've busted a few knuckles

22:55 <zombie67> but just basic stuff

22:55 <zombie67> what's the prob?

22:57 <FreeLarry58> mechanics rule -- if it don't work get a bigger hammer

23:02 <zombie67> BFH

23:03 <Soul_keeper> just wanted to know if what the autozone guy told me is false or not

23:05 <Soul_keeper> said you don't put anything on the boot grease on the distributor cap points

23:05 <zombie67> way over my head, sorry

23:05 <Soul_keeper> the points to keep them from corroding

23:05 <Soul_keeper> i coulda swore one i bought in the past came with some

23:06 <Soul_keeper> hmmm  i'm gonna buy a napa carb rebuild kit tomarrow

23:06 <Soul_keeper>   this guy recommends them

23:06 <Romulus> <> (at

23:19 <FreeLarry58> cap points get dialectric grease to slow corrosion and still allow spark

23:19 <FreeLarry58> other types of grease hinder electric current

23:20 <Soul_keeper> so basically the same stuff that goes on the battery terminals right ?

23:21 <FreeLarry58> as for spark wires they sell a silicon lube to apply to boots -- lightly-- not the contacts to allow easier sliding of boot onto cap wire mount points

23:21 <FreeLarry58> yup if dialectric - some of the grease they use on batteries are only to prevent air from conacting posts

23:22 <Soul_keeper> that's what i figured, i can't see leaving them bare in there

23:22 <FreeLarry58> keep it real light with the grease coating

23:23 <Soul_keeper> how many miles between cap/rotor replacement is usually suggested ?

23:24 <Soul_keeper> i only went 20k on mine, but i was noticing misfiring  and stuff was corroded

23:27 <Soul_keeper> i'll replace everything in my truck if i have to in order to get my gas milage back where it was

23:28 <Soul_keeper> seems i'm getting a little bit of clutch slip too

23:35 <Soul_keeper> the fact that the mirror and window tracks are broken don't matter ...
