00:39 * efc is waiting for some Boinc benchs on the Atom

00:46 <Soul_keeper> http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-atom-cpu,1947-8.html

00:46 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/6x2vja> (at www.tomshardware.com)

00:46 <efc> Boinc benchs?

00:46 <Soul_keeper> efc,  super pi  and stuff ...

00:46 <efc> They did everything else :)

00:46 <Soul_keeper> email that website and request the boinc benchs

00:46 <efc> Its stupid I know but we must be told!

00:47 <Soul_keeper> i got some forum connections i can ask around

00:47 <nickuwo> are there any advantages/disadvantages running BOINC on a certain linux distro?

00:48 <Soul_keeper> The price: $29 for an Atom 230

00:48 <Soul_keeper> nickuwo,  i'd say no

00:48 <Soul_keeper> unless you consider running it on your favorite distro and advantage ...

00:48 <nickuwo> ahmm

00:49 <efc> I'm sure it won't be that fast

00:49 <efc> It might have nice flots/watt though

00:49 <efc> For say a router

00:52 <Soul_keeper> yeah looks like the atom just barely outperforms a via C7  (which is slightly less than a P3 celeron)

00:52 <Soul_keeper> and atom has hyperthreading ...

00:54 <efc> the chipsets are currently junk but maybe they'll get better

00:54 <Romulus> I think it's better than computer phobic parents

00:55 <Soul_keeper> i think you'd need 10 atoms to equal the performance of a single c2d

00:56 <Soul_keeper> well 10 would be 20 logical cores

00:56 <Soul_keeper> could benefit greatly for highly parallel apps

00:56 <efc> I did say it was stupid

00:57 <Soul_keeper> well at 29 bucks an atom   10 of them would be  290  bucks, which is about the price of a c2d or quad  ....   guess the price/performance works out about right

00:58 <efc> The cost of the rest of the system would hurt it a lot

00:58 <Soul_keeper> yeah

00:58 <Soul_keeper> you hear about what IBM is doing now ?

00:59 <efc> Nuh uh

00:59 <Soul_keeper> they are integrating water cooling onto the silicon at a micron level

01:04 <efc> ah

01:04 <efc> Wonder how they will hold up

01:18 <Soul_keeper> yeah sounds promising

01:24 *** BadBarbarian_ has quit IRC

01:33 <Soul_keeper> a family's house exploded,  they were "desperate to save money on gas"  so they had like 45 gallons stashed in their garage

01:34 <efc> Heard that.. Oops

01:36 <Soul_keeper> it's nearly 4.40 a gallon here now

01:38 <efc> Wish I could work on my chemistry ideas

01:38 <efc> but i'm years behind and seem to be getting dumbe

01:41 <Soul_keeper> i was more into physics than chemistry

01:41 <efc> I didn't take any chemistry at all in college

01:41 <efc> high school teacher was a moron

01:43 <Soul_keeper> i aced physics in HS, got a B- in chemistry tho

01:43 <KathrynM> LOL.  I got a B in Physics.  Except anyone who passed the tests got an A and the rest of us got a B.  Chem was a snap tho.

01:45 <efc> The stuff done pre college is so crude

01:45 <efc> we had assignments like memorize the periodic table and atomic numbers

01:45 <KathrynM> The physics teacher was the football coach.  He used to eat chalk.  I think he got hit on the head one too many times.

01:46 <KathrynM> The only chem stuff we had to memorize were the polyatomic ions.

01:46 <KathrynM> Teacher gave us a period table on the tests.  She said "in the real world, you'll have one available".

01:46 <KathrynM> I liked her.

01:47 <efc> ours was football too but total jerk

01:47 <Soul_keeper> yeah chem teacher was a recovered drug addict

01:47 <Soul_keeper> our*

01:48 <KathrynM> Mr. W was a complete jerk.  I hated physics after that.  I only took in college because it was a requirement for my degree.

01:48 <Soul_keeper> our physics teacher was a homosexual, so was the biology teacher

01:49 <KathrynM> I gotta say, only the physics teacher was  a jerk.  Bio and chem teachers were awesome.  They helped me study for Ohio's test contest thingy (which I can't reember the name of) and wrote awesome reccomendation letters for summer science programs.

01:51 <yoyo[RKN]> moin

01:51 <Soul_keeper> my geometry teacher was a butch black chick with a flat-top hair cut, she was cool

01:52 <KathrynM> heh.  My geometry teacher was pretty cool too.  I think my two brothers and I all had him.

01:52 <KathrynM> When he drew diagrams on the board, he did so with sound effects.

01:52 <KathrynM> "ZAP!"

01:52 <KathrynM> "ZIP!"

01:52 <KathrynM> "ZING!!!"

01:52 <Soul_keeper> lol

01:52 <KathrynM> I was scared of the algebra II teacher and loved my precalc/calc teacher.

01:53 <KathrynM> My entire class was scared of the English II teacher.  He used to be the assistant principal.  You could have heard a pin drop on the carpet that first day.  Turned out he was a pretty cool guy.

01:53 <efc> I'm interested in photochemistry.. hard place to start

01:53 <Soul_keeper> i think everyone was scared of our calculus teacher,  she was an evil short chick that drove a mustang cobra and dressed up as a witch during halloween

01:53 <KathrynM> Anyone remember how to find out how much energy it would take to split a molecule of O2?

01:54 <Soul_keeper> i had to drop that class

01:54 <KathrynM> awesome calc teacher :)

01:54 <KathrynM> gonna go do some googling.  want to make a blog entry on "fan death"

01:54 <Soul_keeper> cool

01:56 <efc> KathrynM: I've been trying to figure out how to compute stuff like that and have gotten nowhere

01:56 <efc> compute, not measure

01:56 <KathrynM> darn

01:56 <Soul_keeper> einstein taught himself  lol

01:56 * KathrynM is not einstein

01:57 * KathrynM thinks she has gotten significantly dumber since college

01:57 <Soul_keeper> yeah i think i've forgotten how to do long division

02:02 <efc> it seems like you should be able to do it based on the molecular distances and the charges involved

02:02 <efc> move to an infinite distance

02:04 <Soul_keeper> all i know is neutrons are neutral ...

02:05 <KathrynM> :)

02:05 <efc> you could treat the atom as a point charge I guess

02:05 <efc> I don't think it will be very accurate

02:05 <KathrynM> well the bond energy for O2 is 498 kJ·mol-1

02:06 <KathrynM> gotta love wikipedia

02:06 <efc> activation energies, absorbtion spectra, can't compute any of it

02:07 *** [B^S]renemayer has joined #boinc

02:07 <KathrynM> Looks like the bond energy is the number I need.  But I need someway to translate that into human understandable concepts.

02:08 <KathrynM> ooo

02:08 <KathrynM> The bond energy of the O=O bonds is 116 kcal.

02:09 <KathrynM> Gibbs Free Energy.  I remember the term.  It's amazing how much stuff I've forgotten over the years.

02:09 <efc> They never compute this stuff, always measure

02:09 <KathrynM> :)

02:10 <KathrynM> I don't care about computing or measuring.  Someone's already done the heavy lifting for me.

02:12 <Soul_keeper> efc, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813121342     newegg has an atom barebone for 70 bucks now

02:12 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5jog7t> (at www.newegg.com)

02:13 <efc> I do, because I want to build something new

02:13 <efc> doing it computationally would let me search many more combinations

02:13 <KathrynM> you're smarter than I

02:13 <efc> Soul: The price is right

02:13 <efc> It would be worth billions

02:14 <efc> Soul: Just need a nice low power chipset I could leave on without feeling guilty

02:22 <efc> If you could get the whole system under 25 watts or so that would be great

02:22 <Soul_keeper> heh

02:22 <Soul_keeper> via has 1 watt systems i believe

02:23 <Soul_keeper> hmmm i kinda want one of them nano's now just to toy with

02:30 <efc> Need some light OSes for them

02:34 <Soul_keeper> linux

02:35 <efc> I guess its light with a 2.4 kernel

02:42 <efc> Can you substitute different kernel versions easily?

02:42 <Soul_keeper> don't see why not

02:44 <efc> when i studied it in school 2.2 was the latest

02:46 <efc> classic moment, vampire eats chunk out of girl, spits it out and says in Vampirese: "Vegetarian!"

02:48 <Soul_keeper> :)

04:40 <CoderForLife> sure enough

04:40 <CoderForLife> how are you?

05:16 <CoderForLife> excellent

05:16 <KathrynM> dinner is good

05:16 <CoderForLife> I'd hate it think it otherwise

05:17 <CoderForLife> and a steroid explosion... well..

05:17 <KathrynM> just realized it's the first meal I've eated all day

05:17 <KathrynM> yeah, my lungs hate me at the moment.

05:17 <KathrynM> complete with wheezing.  and if I wheeze, I know I have problems

05:18 <CoderForLife> I've been a life long wheezer

05:18 <KathrynM> I'm a cougher

05:18 <CoderForLife> I'll see your cough, and raise you a wheeze

05:18 <KathrynM> had more than one arguement with stupid doctors who though asthma = wheezing

05:19 <KathrynM> lol

05:19 <KathrynM> I did a peak flow earlier.  It was 250.

05:19 <KathrynM> Normal for me is 550-600

05:19 <KathrynM> ummmmmm...

05:19 <KathrynM> no wonder I was wheezing

05:19 <CoderForLife> I've never been flowed

05:19 <KathrynM> fun little machines.

05:20 <KathrynM> I only have one, or I'd take it apart to see how it works

05:20 <CoderForLife> it's weasel-powered, I bet

05:20 <KathrynM> lol

05:21 <CoderForLife> I'm having Fedora install issues

05:21 <KathrynM> you and me both

05:21 <CoderForLife> I can't install F9 directly, fresh install

05:21 <KathrynM> I don't want to update my daily driver until I see how the whole update thing works.

05:22 <CoderForLife> I was able to upgrade a minimal F8 fresh install to F9

05:22 <KathrynM> But I can't get the other computer to update because I can't get the graphic drivers to install

05:22 <CoderForLife> now trying to update a more maximal F8 fresh install to F9

05:23 <CoderForLife> but the F8 install failed due to not being able to read an RPM from the DVD

05:23 <CoderForLife> now trying a sub-maximal F8 fresh install

05:23 <KathrynM> good luck

05:24 <CoderForLife> the problem is picking packages is not the same as picking RPMs

05:24 <CoderForLife> thx

05:25 <CoderForLife> I did manage to get Windows Server 2003 running on my other new boxc

05:25 <CoderForLife> er box

05:25 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

05:25 <KathrynM> that's good

06:08 <KathrynM> lol

06:08 <KathrynM> I'm slooooooooooooowly trying to clean the apartment.  I have to stop to catch my breath and stick my head under a cold shower.  The joys of steroids :(

06:09 <CoderInTheLab> heh

06:09 <CoderInTheLab> 2047/2137

06:10 <KathrynM> almost done?

06:10 <CoderInTheLab> yeah - it stopped at 937 last night

06:10 <CoderInTheLab> this is F8, then the F9 upgrade

06:11 * KathrynM crosses fingers

06:11 <CoderInTheLab> thinking about if I should do a yum update in between

06:11 <KathrynM> might not be a bad idea

06:11 <KathrynM> (says the gal who's never done an OS upgrade on Fedora)

06:11 <CoderInTheLab> I was thinking that it might be good tobe sure F8 is current

06:12 <CoderInTheLab> it's want I did on the minimal F8 to F9 upgrade

06:12 <KathrynM> are they ever gonna make it so you can just yum the system to the next version?  that was one of the nice things in ubunny

06:12 <CoderInTheLab> 2137/2137

06:13 <CoderInTheLab> disk ejects!  yay

06:13 <KathrynM> woot!

06:13 <KathrynM> youcould just stop at F8 :)

06:14 <CoderInTheLab> nah nah nah

18:59 <MTughan> No, you've got to get the gaming case from Antec that has 3 120mm fans and 1 200mm fan. xD

19:00 <MTughan> 200mm fan rotates at 800rpm max, I think it was. Still moved above 300 CFM if I remember... brb

19:02 <MTughan> Sorry... 800rpm max, that was right, but 134 CFM.

19:02 <MTughan> And 30dBA.

19:04 <xcamel> mike - you have some nasty storms on your doorstep..

19:05 <MTughan> So I've heard... Started to rain here already, heard thunderstorms are on the way too...

19:05 * MTughan is glad for the UPS

19:05 <MTughan> Surge protection and battery backup.

19:05 * CoderForLife looks at the radar

19:08 <xcamel> had to back up one kernel rev - avoid 17-88

19:08 <xcamel> went back to 15-80

19:08 <Romulus> they are deterministic, and I bet their fix will be held.

19:08 <CoderForLife> Rom always has an opinion

19:09 * CoderForLife wonders what kernel he is installing ATM

19:09 <MTughan> Oh, you too? 2.6.23.17-88 screwed up X for me.

19:10 <MTughan> 2.6.23.15-80 works perfectly fine, yeah.

19:10 <MTughan> What distro?

19:10 <Romulus> hmm... What distro is this, MTughan

19:10 <MTughan> Stupid bot...

19:10 <PovAddict> hmm what tool would you recommend to re-encode video or to make thumbnails of them?

19:11 <CoderForLife> something non-MS

19:11 <MTughan> Re-encode, ffmpeg. Thumbnails... Could ffmpeg just grab a frame too?

19:11 <PovAddict> command-line since I need to automate it on 507 videos

19:11 <MTughan> That's gonna take a while...
