00:29 <MTughan> Wow, that's ridiculous... Just exploring Apple's store, looked at RAM. They put at least a 400% markup on 4GB for the Macbook models...

00:30 <MTughan> They charge $400 for 4GB. I can get good quality 4GB for $90.

00:31 <MTughan> There's only one other thing I can think of in terms of the memory, and that's the timings, but how fast do you need them?

00:33 <Soul_keeper> yes apple juse took the #1 pc spot for seller of desktops over 2k  i believe

00:34 <MTughan> You mean they're selling more desktops than Win2K?

00:34 <Soul_keeper> no, compared to dell/gateway/etc.

00:34 <Soul_keeper> they sell more computers that cost over 2k than anyone

00:34 <MTughan> I thought they were fairly far down?

00:34 <MTughan> Oh...

00:35 <Soul_keeper> they are far down

00:35 <MTughan> No wonder. The other ones do all cheap stuff.

00:35 <Soul_keeper> but all they sell is high priced stuff

00:35 <MTughan> And then the cheap stuff is obsolete within a year.

00:36 <Soul_keeper> yup

00:36 <MTughan> Hmm... Know anything about SAS?

00:44 <Soul_keeper> it's basically sata for enterprise

00:44 <Soul_keeper> cheaper alternative to scsi

00:45 <Soul_keeper> unless you are atleast a midsized company tho, it's probably still not "cheap"

00:51 <MTughan> All right. So I'll stick with SATA then.

01:04 <Soul_keeper> not sure if SAS supports hot swapping, probably does

01:08 <Soul_keeper>       that review looks reasonable

01:28 <Tank_Master> man o man

01:28 * Tank_Master cant wait for the nehalem CPUs to come out

01:28 <Tank_Master> 45% faster than the yorkfiled at the same speed

01:29 <Tank_Master> (at least is on limited synthedic benchmark)

01:29 <Tank_Master> is on -> in one*

01:30 <MTughan> When are they coming out?

01:31 <Tank_Master> Q4

01:31 <Tank_Master> limited release late Q3

01:31 <Tank_Master> but defently this year, with full production Q1 next year

01:31 <MTughan> Looks like I'll be going Yorkfield for my processor then...

01:32 <Tank_Master> and an 8core CPU will be out thie year as well, which will double that benchmark...

01:32 <MTughan> That thing will be damn expensive at first...

01:32 <Tank_Master> probably

01:33 <Tank_Master> its a compleatly new architechture

01:33 <Tank_Master> 32k L1 data, 32k L1 int, 32k L2, 8MB L3

01:33 * Soul_keeper can wait

01:33 <Tank_Master> you can?

01:34 * Tank_Master cant

01:34 <MTughan> All right, so my case has 4 80mm fans... Anyone know some good, quiet, 80mm fans?

01:34 * Tank_Master only uses 120mm

01:34 <MTughan> Or a good name?

01:34 <MTughan> I'd use 120mm, but the spots aren't big enough...

01:35 <Tank_Master> not right off

01:35 <MTughan> And I'm not modding my case.

01:35 <Tank_Master> lol

01:35 <MTughan> Is more fins usually better for airflow?

01:36 <Tank_Master> if placed right, yes

01:43 <Soul_keeper> just get a floppy bay fan speed adjuster

01:43 <Soul_keeper> i've got a vantec one, it connects 4 fans and i can adjust the speed

01:43 <Soul_keeper> fluid dynamic bearings are pretty quiet

01:48 <Tank_Master> oh, cool

01:49 <Tank_Master> meny of the motherboars coming out for the new CPU will have 6 memory slots

01:49 <Tank_Master> so 12GB is possible!

01:50 <Tank_Master> and 6GB rather affordable

01:52 * Tank_Master is listening to: Jose Amnesia Vs. Serp - Second Day (Martin Roth Remix) (Tag's Trip [SomaFM]) and has been listening to SomaFM for: 3102:46

01:58 <Soul_keeper>    i want 3 of these, the most powerfull fan of that size on the market

01:58 <Romulus> Title: Delta FFB1212EH 120x25mm Extreme High Speed (at

01:59 <Soul_keeper> the louder the better

01:59 <Tank_Master> looks like 4GB moduals will be out this year

02:11 *** tamar has quit IRC

02:20 <efc> moo

02:20 *** [B^S]renemayer has joined #boinc

02:23 <efc> 6 slots, haven't seen that in a while

02:24 <Tank_Master> yeah

02:24 <Tank_Master> thatlll be nice

02:24 <Tank_Master> given the quad core with HT = 8 threads

02:25 <Tank_Master> and the octi core with HT will be 16 threads

02:25 <Tank_Master> youll need those 6 slots

02:25 <Romulus> sudo yum install postfix (and so on).

02:25 <efc> I dunno, I don't value the HT part much, that'll cut your cache down to nothing per process

02:26 <Tank_Master> there is 8MB L3

02:26 <efc> still umpteen cores, it can't hurt

02:26 <Tank_Master> and the HT this time isnt like the P4 HT

02:26 <Tank_Master> its better, more effecent

02:28 <Tank_Master> the octicore CPU will be almost 3x faster than a quadcore 45nm yorkfield

02:28 <efc> I'll Buy That For A Dollar

02:29 <Tank_Master> thatll mean what, 15k+ RAC on 64bit ABC?

12:12 <quail> Bravewolf: what module that?

12:14 <Bravewolf> quail: WOW. My laptop is hotter than your just 5 minutes after powered on (with BOINC down). I would imagine that you have a cooler pad.

12:14 <Bravewolf> quail: ata_piix

12:16 <quail> ata_piix is in my kernel

12:17 <quail> yeah my laptop is always on a cooler pad

12:17 <quail> but my laptop does not boinc tho

12:18 <quail> and it always working hard tho controling other machines

12:19 <Bravewolf> ata_piix is the kernel, but some line of the code are commented. (bug #444182)

12:20 <quail> I can't install debian lenny on my desktop as the installer can't find my cd rom

12:20 <Bravewolf> quail: I'm thinking to buy a cooler pad... my laptop doesn't have a well cooler system :-(

12:21 <quail> do you have a acer laptop by any chance?

12:21 <Bravewolf> quail: very strange... have you tried also etch installer? lenny beta1 has some problems

12:22 <quail> yeah I have tried etch

12:22 <Bravewolf> quail: you can also use floppy boot

12:23 <quail> Bravewolf: I have worked out the prob with my desktop it cause the ide backend is sata

19:22 <MTughan> All right, I think I have to go for a while, rewire my comp...

19:22 <MTughan> I never did really keep the cabling clean, and now I'm regretting it.

19:23 <MTughan> And I don't think it's exactly wise to go about rewiring some parts of my computer with it running. xD

19:23 <MTughan> I've pulled the hard drive cage out, but that's it.

19:24 <MTughan> One more thing first...

19:28 *** efc has joined #boinc

19:33 <MTughan> Could be.

19:34 <MTughan> Found another fan manufacturer I want to check out first...

19:34 <MTughan> 14dBA for 32CFM.

19:34 <MTughan> Pretty darn good considering the next best I found is 20dBA for 28CFM.

19:35 <MTughan> These are 80mm fans, BTW.

19:37 <MTughan> if you're interested.

22:55 <quail> CoderOnTheRoad: howdy

22:56 <CoderOnTheRoad> hello quail

22:56 <CoderOnTheRoad> packing up heree

23:00 <quail> you heading home?

23:00 *** PovIpod has joined #boinc

23:00 <CoderOnTheRoad> tomorrow, yes =)

23:00 <CoderOnTheRoad> It'll be good to get back

23:00 <PovIpod> hey

23:00 <CoderOnTheRoad> hey PovIpod  =)

23:00 <quail> :-)

23:01 <CoderOnTheRoad> I was just looking for my iPod here in the room

23:01 <CoderOnTheRoad> couldn't find it =(

23:01 <CoderOnTheRoad> called home

23:01 <CoderOnTheRoad> it was in the bag that I first had everytghing in, b ut was too small =)

23:02 <MTughan> Your bag was too small for an iPod?

23:02 <CoderOnTheRoad> it didn't make the trip, so it didn't get lost

23:02 <CoderOnTheRoad> yeah, that's it exactly, MTughan  =)

23:02 <PovIpod> security is rarely convenient; I put a password on my iPod just so my sister doesnt use it but its annoying to type in every time I unlock the screen

23:02 <CoderOnTheRoad> lol  that topic came up in a sesion today

23:03 <CoderOnTheRoad> I got to share with a big group (TM)

23:03 <PovIpod> tm & (C) CFL, etc

23:03 <efc> moo

23:03 <PovIpod> (your phrase)

23:03 <CoderOnTheRoad> A lady was complaining how inconvenient it was to configure her portal security

23:04 <CoderOnTheRoad> hey efc =)

23:05 <CoderOnTheRoad> at least my iPod was found safe at home

23:05 <CoderOnTheRoad> I was going to use it on the 3-1/2 hour fkight back

23:05 <CoderOnTheRoad> er flight

23:06 <CoderOnTheRoad> maybe I'll just use my noise canceling headphones by themselves

23:06 <CoderOnTheRoad> I plan to read a book on the Kindle

23:07 <CoderOnTheRoad> which reminds me...

23:07 <PovIpod> cool

23:07 * CoderOnTheRoad goes to plug in the Kindle to be sure it;s fully charged

23:07 <PovIpod> how good are those ?

23:08 <PovIpod> good resolution/contrast/battery life?

23:08 <MTughan> And I might have been premature with the fan upgrades... The stock fans apparently pull 26CFM at 23dBA.

23:08 <CoderOnTheRoad> they're OK - takes some getting used to

23:08 <MTughan> Which comparing with what I was upgrading too, isn't too much difference.

23:08 <CoderOnTheRoad> good rez, good battery life if you don't switch on the antenna

23:09 <CoderOnTheRoad> man, it's windy outside

23:09 <MTughan> Was wanting to put LED fans in the front, but the ones I was looking at are less powerful than these...

23:09 <PovIpod> well, wrt reading comfort, nothing would beat dead tree

23:09 <MTughan> CoderOnTheRoad: Send some down. :P

23:10 <CoderOnTheRoad> what I miss is the feeling of progeress - with a physical book, you can easily see -even feel - how far you are

23:10 * PovIpod points CotR at the humidity

23:10 <CoderOnTheRoad> the Kindle holds a tons of books - but they are somewhat ethereal

23:11 <CoderOnTheRoad> I am currently reading "Red Mars" by Kim Stanley Robinson

23:11 <CoderOnTheRoad> "Green Mars" is downloaded and waiting

23:12 <CoderOnTheRoad> then it's onto "Blue Mars" and then "The Martians" - both yet to be bought/downloaded


23:12 * CoderOnTheRoad feels better now

23:13 <Soul_keeper> aren't those all pdf ebooks on the kindle ?

23:14 <Soul_keeper> i'd rather read html format books on a UMPC

23:14 <PovIpod> sk: I don't think so

23:14 <PovIpod> most probably some DRMd format

23:15 <CoderOnTheRoad> nope  Amazon format - although you can download PDFs to it, and get things like Word docs converted and sent to it

23:16 <MTughan> Wow, these fans can go pretty quiet when you rev them down...

23:16 <CoderOnTheRoad> oh, just looked at your Humididity PovIpod

23:16 <Soul_keeper> 5v mod makes things quiet ...

23:16 <MTughan> SK: What's that?

23:17 <Soul_keeper> run your 12v fans off the 5v rails

23:17 <CoderOnTheRoad> when they said "Clear" they meant the visibility in the water you're swimming in PovIpod

23:17 <MTughan> How do I tell which are the 5v rails?

23:17 <MTughan> The one's marked Fan Only?

23:18 <Soul_keeper> the red on the molex connector is 5v

23:18 <MTughan> And the yellow and black?

23:18 <Soul_keeper> yellow is 12v and black is ground

23:18 <PovIpod> MT just don't blow it up :)

23:18 <MTughan> I'll have to see which one's are being diverted...

23:19 <PovIpod> ok sleep for real now

23:19 <CoderOnTheRoad> cya PovIpod

23:19 <PovIpod> bai

23:19 <CoderOnTheRoad> MTughan: don't let the smoke out - it's the smoke that makes it work

23:19 <PovIpod> that's what *I* said

23:20 <CoderOnTheRoad> yup after a fashion

23:20 <PovIpod> magic smoke that powers all electrical devices

23:20 <CoderOnTheRoad> yep - the secret sauce

23:21 <CoderOnTheRoad> pixie dust

23:21 *** PovIpod has quit IRC

23:23 <MTughan> Hmm, you're right. The top fan has a Molex adapter, but the hot goes to the yellow line.

23:24 * CoderOnTheRoad feels his eyes fading

23:24 <CoderOnTheRoad> time for ZZZ

23:24 <MTughan> Same with the front fans, although they have another controller on them.

23:24 <efc> night CFL

23:24 <CoderOnTheRoad> tomorrow night -in my own bed

23:25 <CoderOnTheRoad> gn Soul_keeper MTughan efc

23:25 <efc> People are reviewing the poor Atom with Vista, chip abuse

23:25 <Soul_keeper> late

23:25 *** CoderOnTheRoad has quit IRC

23:25 <Soul_keeper> efc, yeah it wasn't made for performance

23:25 <Soul_keeper> it's for sub 600 dollar MIDs and UMPCs

23:25 <efc> needs a lighter weight os

23:26 <Soul_keeper> linux would probably run perfect on it :)

23:26 <MTughan> Yep, the noisest fan in the machine is definitely the top one...

23:26 <efc> 2K would be good if it had the drivers

23:27 <MTughan> Then the VGA drivers...

23:28 <MTughan> fan*

23:28 * MTughan smacks himself

23:29 <efc> Its pretty sad when XP seems lean and mean..

23:30 <Soul_keeper> i think via's nano  will be better than atom

23:31 <Soul_keeper> ?Our roadmap has us going there (the UMPC market) in the future?the first half of 2010. We will have products that play into that space when we believe that growth warrants it,? says Shutter.

23:32 <Soul_keeper> amd is apparently not even attempting to enter that market for another 2+ yrs

23:32 <efc> I dunno, intel has an advantage with the 45 nm stuff for now

23:34 <Soul_keeper> yeah

23:36 <Soul_keeper> TongFang   (asia only company)  will be the first with a "nano" (Isaiah) based product,  they were the first to release a C7 product when they came out, but they don't sell in the US

23:38 <efc> At least if Intel does something it will usually be pretty solid driver wise
