06:51 <hawmps> ...could be 95 here saturday..
06:52 <CoderOnTheRoad> forecast is 95 here also - a bit cooler
06:52 <CoderOnTheRoad> the wind was howling last night - sand flying everywhere
06:53 <CoderOnTheRoad> flying home today - I'll see what the results of the last 2 days of storms
06:55 <CoderOnTheRoad> I'm hoping for a smooth flight at 45000 feet
06:55 <CoderOnTheRoad> or whatever the west-to-east altitude is...
06:56 <CoderOnTheRoad> we get back in 75% of the time due to tail wind

07:34 <CoderOnTheRoad> lol
07:35 <CoderOnTheRoad> that is due to our age difference
07:35 <PovIpod> indeed

09:37 <CoderOnTheRoad> "security is.."
09:37 <PovAdct_w> ugh
09:38 <CoderOnTheRoad> .. and don't even *think* about "root"
09:39 <PovAdct_w> well it wouldn't surprise me that I can't get into root from ssh
09:39 <PovAdct_w> if I need to, I can just sudo once in from my normal user
09:39 <PovAdct_w> problem here is... it says "connection refused"
09:39 <Romulus> whoa. I have 14 win boxes from my family, the better.
09:39 <PovAdct_w> I'm sure I forwarded the ssh port on the firewall
09:40 <CoderOnTheRoad> might just be a firewall rulke
09:40 <PovAdct_w> ubuntu comes with a firewall by default? I'm sure I didn't install any (software) firewall
09:41 <CoderOnTheRoad> oh - you have a firewall running on each machine

11:56 <quail> nope
12:02 <CoderOnTheRoad> I guess my real question should be, anyone know of an IRC channel where dimensional data modeling, data mining, date warehouses and other similar and incredibly interesting stuff are discussed?
12:04 <quail> try iirc /list search <blah>
12:04 <CoderOnTheRoad> ah thanks

12:17 <KathrynM> today
12:17 <KathrynM> as it's today now and was yesterday over an hour ago
12:18 <CoderOnTheRoad> Oooo
12:18 <KathrynM> ?

12:18 <KathrynM> yeah
12:18 <quail> damn people that use ubuntu for a server should be shot on site
12:18 <KathrynM> shiny toy
12:18 <KathrynM> yeah, well, talk to the boinc folks
12:18 <KathrynM> they provide a vm server image
12:19 <quail> debian rocks as server better than ubuntu
12:19 * CoderOnTheRoad is thankful that he set up Edgy as a desktop
12:19 * KathrynM doesn't really know anything about server oses
12:20 <quail> rhel not to bad too
12:20 <CoderOnTheRoad> I use Linux only in a server role
12:20 * KathrynM likes fedora better than ubunny for a desktop
12:20 <KathrynM> I dunno. *buntu seems so "fluffy"
12:20 <quail> CoderOnTheRoad: ubuntu is great as a desktop OS for people new to linux
12:20 <CoderOnTheRoad> but that will change as my development plans progress
12:21 <KathrynM> Gnome just sucks
12:21 <wdsmia> asks KathrynM to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.

12:23 <CoderOnTheRoad> so has your class done a project on Pentaho versus JasperSoft, KathrynM
12:23 <KathrynM> why, we're working on that right now CoderOnTheRoad
12:23 * KathrynM thinks CoderOnTheRoad has lost his mind
12:23 <CoderOnTheRoad> oh good, I'm just in time
12:23 <CoderOnTheRoad> and the answer is.....
12:23 <KathrynM> wednesday we're making baking soda volcanoes
12:24 <KathrynM> so go with JasperSoft
12:24 * quail thinks CoderOnTheRoad has lost his way home till he get his answer :-P
12:24 <KathrynM> the other one seems too hard to say :)
12:24 <CoderOnTheRoad> that was ny first impression, but I was intrigued by the data mining part of Pentaho

12:39 <quail> oh I thought you were home already
12:39 <CoderOnTheRoad> supposed to land 7 hours from now
12:39 <CoderOnTheRoad> no, I'm CoderOnTheRoad
12:40 <quail> :-)
12:40 <CoderOnTheRoad> you'll have to ask CoderForLife
13:03 <quail> CoderOnTheRoad: this weekend hopefully alot of the cabling and drive mounting will be finished on my new box
13:03 <CoderOnTheRoad> I have two new boxes waiting at home for me to set up
13:05 <quail> :-)
13:06 <CoderOnTheRoad> One will get F9, replace my current test server, and may become my production web server
13:06 <CoderOnTheRoad> the other one will get Windows Server 2003, and become a domain controller
13:07 <quail> CoderOnTheRoad: get into bind9
13:07 <CoderOnTheRoad> I'm thinking that my current development server will get OpenSuSE 10.2, then 10.3
13:07 <quail> and then you domain controller can run on a p133mmx
13:08 <CoderOnTheRoad> I need to test compatibility with Windows Server 2003, and eventually 2008
13:09 <quail> k

16:25 <xcamel> re-hi
16:28 <yoyo[RKN]> re
16:28 <yoyo[RKN]> in my boinc wrapper, is there a way to get a callback if the screensaver is called?
16:29 <PovAddict> hold on, phone
16:32 <PovAddict> the screensaver runs as a separate app
16:32 <PovAddict> there is no way for any boinc app to know when it starts
16:32 <PovAddict> unless you make your screensaver somehow notify it
16:33 <yoyo[RKN]> currently the wrapper starts "muon -background"
16:33 <yoyo[RKN]> but muon can also run with -screensaver
16:33 <PovAddict> then make the screensaver be a wrapper by itself
16:34 <yoyo[RKN]> but than I need a second job.xml
16:34 <PovAddict> I don't mean a science-app-like wrapper
16:34 <Romulus> AOL should be "ideas"
16:34 <PovAddict> (that wouldn't work for a screensaver anyway)
16:34 *** FreeLarry58 has quit IRC
16:34 <PovAddict> just a tiny stub that runs muon -screensaver
16:35 <PovAddict> you *can't* make the wrapper start the screensaver, the whole point of the splitting into a separate application is so the computation and the screensaver can run on separate user accounts
16:35 <yoyo[RKN]> but I must also send a WM_QUIT message to the running muon -background to finish and store the states
16:36 <yoyo[RKN]> ok, but seems feasible
16:36 <yoyo[RKN]> I will make some tests
16:36 <PovAddict> so when it runs with "muon -screensaver", that task does computation too?
16:36 <yoyo[RKN]> yes
16:36 <PovAddict> then you can't use that with BOINC
16:36 <xcamel> yea!
16:36 <xcamel> one bt mouse and kbd for the modbook
16:37 <PovAddict> the screensaver may run under a limited account without permission to talk to boinc, or there may be multiple screensaver graphics running at once
16:37 <PovAddict> you need the screensaver app to do *only* graphics and talk to the computation app
16:38 <yoyo[RKN]> ok than I can't use the exsting one

18:18 <Bravewolf> Pentium III 933 MHz -> 519.62 million ops/sec; Core2 Duo 2 GHz -> 651.12 million ops/sec
18:18 <Bravewolf> Is it possible a so little difference of performance?
18:18 <Bravewolf> (floating point speed)
18:18 <PovAddict> yes... at running BOINC benchmarks
18:19 <PovAddict> not necessarily so little difference at running real work :)
18:19 <Bravewolf> so... cpu benchmark is completely useless...
18:19 <PovAddict> there is no way it can be accurate
18:20 <PovAddict> you could have project A faster on your AMD than on your Intel, but get the opposite on project B
18:21 <PovAddict> the standard CPU benchmark can't test your CPU in a way that represents the kind of work *all* projects do
18:22 <DerMeister> Measured floating point speed534.12 million ops/sec <= that is my 500MHz P3... an *NO* cheating... your benchmark values seem to be much to low...
18:24 <Bravewolf> PovAddict: yes, of course... but I would have imagined a results with a little sense, in particular the difference between P3 and Core2.
18:24 <PovAddict> go compare workunit lengths
18:24 <PovAddict> maybe there *is* that little of a difference
18:24 <Bravewolf> DerMeister: Windows or Linux?
18:25 <PovAddict> although note the benchmarks on the core2 are in million ops/sec *per core*
18:25 <DerMeister> Bravewolf: linux
18:25 <Bravewolf> DerMeister: me too, Debian etch
18:26 <PovAddict> in addition, the CPU benchmark could get twice faster (or slower) depending on how the client is compiled
18:26 <DerMeister> PovAddict: but these values are way too low... even my 6 year old P4 has more than 1200 million ops/sec...
18:26 <PovAddict> so if the client is compiled with a crapload of compiler optimizations and the science app isn't, the results are useless indeed :)
18:26 <PovAddict> same for opposite
18:27 <PovAddict> (which is actually more common)
18:27 *** xcamel has quit IRC
18:28 *** xcamel has joined #boinc
18:32 <Bravewolf> PovAddict: I could try to compile it using apt-build, just for test. Obviously it can't make any difference in the computing, because the running scientific application will remain the same.
18:32 <PovAddict> exactly
18:32 <PovAddict> and using high optimizations (which make your benchmarks a lot higher) could actually give you more credits in some projects
18:33 <PovAddict> and accusations of cheating
18:34 <Bravewolf> but it's not a cheat!
18:35 <PovAddict> if you optimize your core client, giving larger benchmarks but not doing real computation any faster, and the project uses benchmarks for credits, and so you get more credits... that sounds like cheating... you get more credits for the same work
18:36 <Bravewolf> Honestly, I'm very little interested in credits...
18:37 <PovAddict> if you care about credits or not is irrelevant to the kind of forum-idiots who would whine "cheater!" if they see inflated benchmarks

18:38 <Romulus> MTughan: Tank_Master was last seen in #boinc 1 day, 16 hours, 9 minutes, and 0 seconds ago: <Tank_Master> thatll mean what, 15k+ RAC on 64bit ABC?
18:39 <MTughan> Well, he can see this later... I think I found the problem fan in the other computer. Problem is, it's not as easy to replace....

18:39 <MTughan> I think it's the stock Intel CPU cooler.
18:39 <Bravewolf> PovAddict: However it seems stupid to give credits based on benchmark and not based only on the number of mathematical operations carried out.
18:39 <PovAddict> Bravewolf: and that's why many projects, like SETI, don't use benchmarks for credits
18:40 <PovAddict> for other applications, it may be impossible to count the operations done
18:40 <PovAddict> or maybe it's possible, but it makes the computation twice slower, because of the overhead in counting the operations
18:42 <Bravewolf> PovAddict: understood

20:37 <CoderForLife> thanks Doug - good to be home
20:38 <KathrynM> yay! CoderForLife is no longer CoderOnTheRoad
20:38 <CoderForLife> nope - home again home again jiggity jig
20:38 <wdsmia> hope you dont have as many trees downs as I do
20:39 <CoderForLife> I see none down, and the wife reports hearing or seeing none down
20:39 <CoderForLife> I haven't walked the property yet
20:39 <CoderForLife> sorry to hear you have damage
20:39 <wdsmia> lost about a 50' limb out of the maple in the backyard last night
20:40 <CoderForLife> yeow
20:40 <CoderForLife> did it hit anything?
20:40 <wdsmia> tree sevice wants $1400 to remove it
20:40 <CoderForLife> un-good
20:41 <CoderForLife> do you own a chain saw?
20:41 * wdsmia gets ready to put on the tree spikes and do some real work for a few days
20:41 <CoderForLife> be careful
20:42 <CoderForLife> weigh the cost versus the potential cost
20:42 <MTughan> lol
20:42 <wdsmia> been doing that all day lol
20:43 <CoderForLife> if you get hurt, it'll cost more than $1400 I would bet
20:43 <CoderForLife> homeowner's insurance cover it?
20:44 <wdsmia> part of it but you know them low life insurance people
20:46 <CoderForLife> how'd we hop from P&C to life? =)
20:46 <wdsmia> lol
20:47 <wdsmia> Im sure they would cover the 15' of down chain link fence

21:48 <chanueting> I would like to know if there is setting to filter some long time task since my slow computer cannot handle two task at the same time
21:50 <PovAddict> then set it to use a single processor
21:51 <PovAddict> so it only runs one at a time
21:52 <xcamel> back for a few..
21:52 <PovAddict> and gone myself
21:58 <chanueting> I am using a single core processor
21:59 <xcamel> that's all it will ever do then...
21:59 <chanueting> but there is sometime two or more tasks that I can hardly finish them all
22:00 <xcamel> one job from any number of projects at a time
22:00 <xcamel> you have to stick to short duration wu projects
22:01 <chanueting> I see, for example?
22:01 <xcamel> laterz..
22:03 <chanueting> I am new to BOINC
