03:42 <Soul_keeper> hmmm

03:42 <Soul_keeper> i could get an intel atom system up and running for 150 bucks, including 1GB mem and 160GB hd

03:43 <Soul_keeper> has a daily special lasting 1 more hour  33 bucks for 1GB of ddr2

03:44 <Soul_keeper> dang it's ddr1

03:44 <Soul_keeper> ohhh well

03:45 <Soul_keeper> lol 9 bucks for 256MB of ddr2 tho

03:47 <Soul_keeper> 18 bucks for 1GB ddr2

03:55 <CoderForLife> you never have too much memory

04:19 <efc> i'm hoping they do some lower power chipsets

04:19 <efc> of course still no s@h benchs..

04:19 <efc> it doesn't matter but we must know

04:21 <CoderForLife> inquiring minds...

04:21 <efc> are they actually available for sale yet?

04:22 <efc> could wade into the cesspool of the forums

04:23 <efc> it does support all the fancy instructions so optimized client would be good

04:24 <efc> probably could use special scheduling by the compiler, if possible

04:29 <CoderForLife> um-hmm

04:34 <efc>

04:35 <efc> roughly half as fast (in the benchs) as my 2.8 ghz p4

04:36 <efc> with about 4 watts versus around 100 for the p4

04:36 <efc> if you have HT/multicore do those benchs count both threads or just one?

16:13 <quail> I have to keep running out the room atm :-(

16:14 <CoderForLife> I e-mailed one of the prospective wall contractors and my e-mail bounced back due to full mailbox

16:14 <CoderForLife> too busy for new business?

16:14 <quail> or to much spam

16:14 <CoderForLife> not enough attention to details?

16:15 <PovAddict> just hope he doesn't pay as much attention to you wall as to his email storage

16:15 <CoderForLife> too cheap for an admin assistant?

16:15 <quail> some people don't know how to empty there pop3 account

16:16 <CoderForLife> it was a postfix server

16:19 <CoderForLife> are there good proxy server alternatives to squid, besides MS?

16:19 <PovAddict> not sure...

16:19 <PovAddict> I looked a bit at squid

16:20 <PovAddict> they were still working on HTTP1.1 support and proper caching for chunked downloads

16:20 <PovAddict> the latter being the ONLY feature I was looking for

16:20 <CoderForLife> when was that?

16:20 <quail> CoderForLife: nothing wrong with squid once you get your head around the config file

16:20 <PovAddict> this year definitely

16:21 <CoderForLife> any alternatives to squid?

16:22 <CoderForLife> A guy at work is asking after the a** took our our squuid servers and sold up up the river to MS

16:33 <CoderForLife> but there's a much meaner one coming behind it

16:36 <CoderForLife> ah, the chief hackers tool

16:36 <KathrynM> get a local mirror of a site.  I've tried everything I know (which is very little) and it won't download the images

16:36 <CoderForLife> that's it exactly jackygrahamez

16:36 <KathrynM> everything I've read says 'wget --mirror -w 2 -p --convert-links' should work

16:36 <PovAddict> let me try myself

16:36 <KathrynM> thx

16:36 <jackygrahamez> I heard that

16:37 <CoderForLife> that's too much KathrynM

16:37 <KathrynM> too much what?

16:37 <CoderForLife> wget urlyouwanttodownload

16:37 <PovAddict> that's not a mirror

16:37 <KathrynM>

16:37 <PovAddict> that would get a single HTML file

16:37 <jackygrahamez> can you use rsync?

16:40 <KathrynM> quail, remember I'm a dummy

16:40 <KathrynM> still no photos

16:40 <quail> recursive lvl is how many directories deap you want to go

16:41 <KathrynM> thanks

16:42 <KathrynM> let me try it with one of my blogs...

16:42 <quail> it working for me :-)

16:42 <KathrynM> I copied and pasted that...

16:43 <PovAddict> I think I found the cause

16:44 <Romulus> Title: Atelier de Tunis « Énergie Durable et Lutte Contre la Pauvreté en Afrique (at

16:45 <PovAddict> -k is convert links, -p is get page requisites

16:45 *** TheFons has quit IRC

16:45 <quail> ok well it not work as I only got crap

16:45 <PovAddict> KathrynM: now, after that failed attempt... :) try adding -H

16:45 <PovAddict> --span-hosts Enable spanning across hosts when doing recursive retrieving.

16:46 <PovAddict> wordpress keeps images in a different server:

16:46 <KathrynM> ahhhhhhhhhhhhh

16:46 <PovAddict> wget doesn't span across hosts by default

16:46 <KathrynM> many thanks!

16:46 <KathrynM> it's working now

16:46 <PovAddict> otherwise, with an unlimited recursing level, you'd end up downloading the whole internet

16:47 <KathrynM> can I add --mirror to that

16:47 <KathrynM> everything is in separate directories now

16:48 <PovAddict> yes, you can add it

16:48 <PovAddict> maybe you could add -nH too (don't create one directory per hostname)

16:49 <KathrynM> so wget -mk -p -nH

16:49 <Romulus> Title: Atelier de Tunis « Énergie Durable et Lutte Contre la Pauvreté en Afrique (at

16:49 <jackygrahamez> dang it can't compile wrapper on windows

16:49 <PovAddict> -m -k -p -H -nH

16:49 <PovAddict> maybe you'd need some more limiting...

16:49 <PovAddict> if a blog post links outside wordpress...

16:50 <PovAddict> given --span-hosts, you could end up downloading lots

17:00 <Soul_keeper> this is interesting, i might be able to put my 6800 to use ...

17:03 <Soul_keeper> if i put that vid card in a budget 200 dollar pc or something it could be impressive

17:03 <Soul_keeper> folding@home doesn't count toward boinc credit tho right ?

17:03 <xcamel> that's just setting the planting season so far, they won't recover this year...

17:04 <jackygrahamez> hmm why am I having so much trouble compiling this wrapper

17:04 <yoyo[RKN]> dono

17:04 <jackygrahamez> 2>..\wrapper\wrapper.C(354) : error C3861: 'suspend_or_resume_threads': identifier not found

17:05 <jackygrahamez> 2>..\wrapper\wrapper.C(505) : error C2065: 'ERR_CHILD_FAILED' : undeclared identifier

17:05 <PovAddict> of course not Soul_keeper

17:05 <PovAddict> folding is not a boinc project

17:05 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez: you probably have a wrapper newer than your boinc library

17:05 <jackygrahamez> ahh

17:05 <PovAddict> you need to keep *both* upgraded

17:06 <Soul_keeper> bla

17:06 <jackygrahamez> It worked until I upgraded the samples

17:07 <Soul_keeper> folding@home isn't worth running, just because it's not boinc compliant

17:07 <yoyo[RKN]> ERR_CHIELD_FAILD is new

17:07 <jackygrahamez> I was trying to play with the object paths in a wrapper

17:07 <PovAddict> Soul_keeper: you shouldn't look at your total credit anyway...

17:07 <jackygrahamez> Personally I want a credit with war kittens

17:08 <PovAddict> it's *impossible* for all projects to give the same credits per minute *and* across platforms *and* even with optimized apps; so the total is kinda meaningless

17:11 *** cactaur has joined #boinc

17:12 <PovAddict> been out for quite a while afaik

17:12 <Soul_keeper> bla

17:13 <Soul_keeper> the total is the ranking, i feel better when i got more credit that some other sorry sap

17:13 <Soul_keeper> even if it is worthless ...

17:13 <jackygrahamez> Tell me if I'm going about this wrong. I generate the soft_link using the wrapper which gets the object path?

17:15 <PovAddict> I still don't see why you want to generate a soft link that you'll parse in the next line of code

17:15 <PovAddict> Soul_keeper: compare your ranking to other people's ranking

17:15 <PovAddict> not credits

17:15 * quail needs coffee

17:16 <Soul_keeper> PovAddict,  what are you talking about now ?

17:16 * yoyo[RKN] too

17:16 <xcamel> seems all my favorite projects hav gone kaflooey

17:16 <jackygrahamez> I'm going to execute python 6 times through my wrapper, how else would I execute that python using that path?

17:16 <xcamel> milkyway, orbit, lhc

17:17 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez: well, something, somewhere in the wrapper, is calling boinc_resolve_filename, to read a soft link and know where the executable is

17:17 <PovAddict> so instead of calling resolve_filename, you put the path in there taking the project dir + "python"

17:18 <jackygrahamez> sure but where would I do that?

17:20 <jackygrahamez> Are we talking about compiling a binary application, put it in the python scripts or something entirely different

17:20 <jackygrahamez> wait it won't work in the python scripts

17:20 <jackygrahamez> chicken and egg thing

17:21 <PovAddict> modify the wrapper so that it concatenates the project directory with "python.exe" *instead* of calling resolve_filename
