00:24 <Soul_keeper> so what's new ?

00:44 <MTughan> 'lo SK

00:57 <MTughan> Well, let you all know... Gonna be gone for two and a half weeks. So don't be worried when I disappear for a while.

00:57 <MTughan> And I know this is a disappointment, but no BOINC crunching while I'm away.

00:58 <MTughan> Oh... And my dad got an Eee. Pretty cool, quite small.

00:59 <MTughan> 900MHz Celeron M with 1GB of RAM, but it's got the fastest startup sequence I've ever seen. Probably about 10-15 seconds.

00:59 <MTughan> And it's still pretty fast...

01:00 <Soul_keeper> :)

01:00 <MTughan> And no, I will not use it for IRC on the trip.

01:00 <Soul_keeper> yeah i'm happy with mine, well worth the pocket change

01:00 <MTughan> We were going to bring my Mac, but after we brought it out of lockdown ( :( ), we discovered the logic board had died. Again.

01:01 <MTughan> So Apple's going to replace it and I'll pick it up after the trip.

01:01 <MTughan> What he suspects is that it could be the aftermarket RAM I put it. Any idea how RAM could wreck a MB?

01:02 <Soul_keeper> doubtfull

01:02 <Soul_keeper> the psu can tho

01:03 <MTughan> But the PSU is stock.

01:03 <MTughan> The only stuff I've upgraded is the RAM from 512MB to 2GB, and the HD from a 5400rpm 60GB drive to a 7200rpm 160GB drive.

01:05 <efc> remoo

01:05 <MTughan> 'lo e

01:10 <MTughan> All right, I'm shutting 'er down. See you all.

13:22 <quail> man theses mini baguettes I have to snack on are very yummy and they are tomato and chilli

13:23 <quail> and they made by helga's

13:23 <CoderForLife> whatever Helga wants, Helga gets

13:23 <quail> hehe

13:24 <quail> they are very yummy little bread sticks

13:29 <quail> CoderForLife: howdy Don, how are you bloke?

13:30 <CoderForLife> on a bug hunt, ATM

13:30 <quail> oh

13:31 <CoderForLife> just moved my new F9 server to the Internet - web sites, e=mail

13:31 <quail> the garlic steak I had tonight is working big time on my bottom :-/

13:32 <CoderForLife> ah, I see a problem

13:32 <quail> CoderForLife: my room stinks?

13:33 <quail> and my hair curling from the stench?

13:34 <quail> CoderForLife: and I have peppered steak for suppa tomorrow night

13:34 <CoderForLife> I'll be there

13:35 <quail> with my bottom?

13:35 <quail> CoderForLife: you are brave

13:36 <quail> CoderForLife: it is rump steak too

13:36 *** dizzie has joined #boinc

13:40 <quail> CoderForLife: you more than welcome to my place for suppa

13:41 <CoderForLife> only if I get this greylisting milter running properly under F9

13:45 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

13:52 <CoderForLife> hooray

13:54 <quail> :-)

13:58 <PovAdct_w> got it working? :)

14:03 <CoderForLife> nearly, so it seems

14:03 <CoderForLife> I just realized that there is a problem between sendmail and milter-greylist having to do with the socket

14:03 <CoderForLife> either wrong location, or Security

14:05 <CoderForLife> Sendmail says: "Milter (greylist): local socket name /var/milter-greylist/milter-greylist.sock unsafe"

14:05 <PovAdct_w> -> home

14:05 <CoderForLife> which means that it can't find it

14:06 <CoderForLife> safe travels

14:06 *** PovAdct_w has quit IRC

14:07 <CoderForLife> that's because it's at /var/run/milter-greylist/milter-greylist.sock

14:07 * CoderForLife edits

14:11 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

14:22 <hawmps> ...sendmail is hellspawn...

14:24 <dizzie> Sendmail is the spawn of satan :)

14:31 <CoderForLife> Sendmail works for me - works hard - no muss, no fuss

14:31 <CoderForLife> I *like* it

14:31 <CoderForLife> It juste needed to know where the socket for milter-greylist was

14:32 <CoderForLife> the greylisting default config file had some things that would not work

14:33 * quail thinking about taking his holden gemini rally car out for a thrash tomorrow

14:41 *** freakazoid0223 has joined #boinc

14:49 <hawmps> postfix/spamassassin is a better choice

14:50 <CoderForLife> sendmail works for me =)

14:51 <CoderForLife> am I am thinking about spamassassin

14:53 <quail> exim4!!!

15:29 <yoyo[RKN]> hmm

15:29 <CoderForLife> hello yoyo[RKN]

15:29 <yoyo[RKN]> my new app dies just after start with Maximum CPU time exceeded

15:30 <yoyo[RKN]> no

15:30 <yoyo[RKN]> it runs only 1 second

15:31 <CoderForLife> config problem then?

16:36 <Tank_Master> yeah, but you only have one IP... :P

16:36 <xcamel> I thought there was two..

16:37 <xcamel> but only one.

16:40 <zombie67> there are only 365 PS3s crunching BOINC (probably includes some dupes).  But those 365 rank 124th in CPU breakdown, by total credit.

16:40 <zombie67>

16:40 <Romulus> <> (at

16:40 <zombie67> Check out the "Average credit

16:40 <zombie67> per CPU second" column

16:40 <zombie67> massive difference

16:42 <PovAddict> that's quite meaningless

16:42 <PovAddict> the credits given by ps3grid are arbitrary

16:42 <zombie67> no they aren't

16:42 <PovAddict> there is no way they can match normal credits because the CPU works in a totally different way

16:42 <PovAddict> does the benchmark use the SPEs?

16:43 <desti> who cares about boinc benchmarks?

16:44 <PovAddict> how can ps3grid decide how many credits to give to PS3s?

16:44 <PovAddict> projects with fixed credits try to keep their credits/hour close to what the benchmarks would give; ps3grid has no other project to compare with

16:45 <desti> compare it with the pc version

16:45 *** c0dewarrior has joined #boinc

16:47 <zombie67> they built and ran the app on a single-core opteron, then re-wrote it to run on Cell.  The speed up was something like 16x.  So that is the benchmark that the use for awarding credits

16:49 <zombie67> they even used to have the linux/PC application available, but have since removed it from the applicaiton page

16:54 *** KathrynM has joined #boinc

16:56 <yoyo[RKN]> PovAddict: ?

16:56 <KathrynM> errr

16:56 <KathrynM> hola

16:56 <KathrynM> wanna laugh PovAddict?

16:56 <yoyo[RKN]> I tried a new app version which crashed just after start in boinc, but works well in standalone mode

16:57 <PovAddict> yoyo: strange error to give - you sure your max CPU is OK?

16:57 <PovAddict> pastebin the messages tab from when it crashed

16:57 <PovAddict> hey KathrynM

16:57 <PovAddict> kinda busy

16:58 *** wdsmia_w has quit IRC

16:58 <KathrynM> gah, I hate icechat

16:58 <zombie67> ah!  Also, you can do a direct comparison at yoyo, PS3 vs normal PC CPU.

16:58 <KathrynM> you think that clicking a link would ya know, open it in the browser

16:58 <PovAddict> zombie67: I wonder that too; how do yoyo PS3 credits compare to ps3grid?

16:58 <desti> 안녕

16:59 <KathrynM> oh my.  interesting PovAddict

17:03 <CoderForLife> back

17:03 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

17:03 <CoderForLife> hello KathrynM

17:03 <CoderForLife> welcome home PovAddict

17:06 <yoyo[RKN]> PovAddict :

17:06 <KathrynM> hiya CoderForLife

17:06 <KathrynM> Still in Vista.  Still hating IceChat

17:07 <KathrynM> CoderForLife:

17:07 <PovAddict> yoyo[RKN]: was the app just started, for the first time, from 0?

17:08 <Romulus> <> (at

17:08 <PovAddict> yoyo[RKN]: it might be your wrapper is reporting bad CPU time

17:08 <yoyo[RKN]> yes

17:09 <PovAddict> remember the wrapper *somehow* gets the real app's CPU time and reports it back

17:09 <yoyo[RKN]> it starts the very first time and aborts in less than 2 seconds

17:10 <yoyo[RKN]> can i debug this

17:11 <zombie67> POV:  yoyo credits are about 1800-2000/day.  PS3GRID credits are about 3800/day.

17:13 <zombie67> I guess the question is:  how optimized are the PC versions of the apps?  As I assume the PS3 version of the apps are already as optimized as possible.

17:13 <yoyo[RKN]> the yoyo apps?

17:16 *** up365 has quit IRC

17:17 <zombie67> the yoyo app that also runs on the PS3.

17:19 <yoyo[RKN]> the cruncher app is very very good optimized. Internaly there are many cores and depending on your cpu properties the best core is choosen. The cores are mainly written in assembler.

17:26 *** c0dewarrior has quit IRC

17:28 <yoyo[RKN]> now it is working, PovAddict, a var was not proper initialized

17:31 <zombie67> so that probably account for the smaller difference in credits.  The PS3GRID PS3 app was so much faster than the PC app, because it wasn't optimized very much.

20:30 <Rookie_69> Not mice... Pangalactic Beings...

20:33 <CoderForLife> there are 10 kinds of people - those that dream in binary and those that don't

22:01 <KathrynM> four people trying to help me at once in #fedora was very nice, but hard to keep all the questions strait.

22:01 <KathrynM> So here I am back in Windows before I throw the bloody computer across the room.

22:02 <Soul_keeper> you'll fix it

22:02 <KathrynM> eventually.  Vista *will* drive me nuts.

22:02 <Soul_keeper> you're too smart to fail :)

22:02 <KathrynM> hahahahahaha

22:02 <KathrynM> I'm lucky to have gotten as far as I have with Fedora.

22:03 <KathrynM> oh well.  Gonna go watch a movie or something.

22:03 <KathrynM> Maybe do some stuff that needs to be done for w&@^

22:05 <MikeC`> Fedora 8? damn

22:06 <MikeC`> they push those versions out faster than a crack dealer

22:26 <PovAddict> MikeC`: the latest is Fedora 9...

22:36 <MikeC`> whoa

22:37 <MikeC`> thought i installed 7 just a couple months ago

22:45 <PovAddict> "Fedora 7, codenamed Moonshine, was released on May 31, 2007"

22:45 <PovAddict> "Fedora 8, codenamed Werewolf, was released on 8 November 2007"

22:45 <PovAddict> "Fedora 9, codenamed Sulphur, was released on 13 May 2008."

22:47 <MikeC`> maybe it was 8, snow was still on the ground...

22:49 <MikeC`> getting old sicks

22:50 <efc> zzzz

23:08 <efc> OT: "I'd love to see 'Survivor : Petri Dish', where the embryos have to compete in stupid tasks, win immunity, and survive elimination for the right to be born"

23:22 <Soul_keeper> anyone here running an athlon x2 ?

23:22 <Soul_keeper> i wanna see someone's benchmark results

23:27 <PovAddict> AuthenticAMD AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+

23:28 <PovAddict> 1027 MIPS floating point, 2686 MIPS integer

23:28 <PovAddict> non-optimized BOINC client

23:29 <PovAddict> 64-bit Linux, 64-bit BOINC client

23:31 <Soul_keeper> perfect thanks

23:31 <Soul_keeper> 4200+   was the exact one i needed for comparison

23:31 <efc> 1401 float / 1844 int, p4-28 ghz

23:33 <efc> I started leaving HT on but only running 1 BOINC thread

23:34 <Soul_keeper> HT with 2 threads is alright

23:35 <Soul_keeper> yes you'll be slightly faster per unit with HT disabled running 1 thread but you'll be about 40% (atleast in my experience) faster overall with HT and 2 threads

23:36 <efc> It seems like the L2 cache contention would kill any benefit

23:36 <Soul_keeper> contention ?

23:36 <efc> two threads fighting over L2 cache

23:36 <Soul_keeper> congestion >?

23:37 <Soul_keeper> well considering that you got 4x the L2 as earlier P4's it won't be an issue

23:37 <efc> at least until you get to the huge caches on the core2 stuff

23:37 <efc> s@h could use around 4 megs of cache, something like that

23:37 <Soul_keeper> they do fight over other things tho, that's the nature of HT  and why you get 40% or less and not 50% speed up like true dual core

23:38 <Soul_keeper> but you will get speed up if configured right

23:38 <Soul_keeper> HT is definately worth enabling

23:38 <Soul_keeper> unless you hate multitasking and/or multithreaded apps

23:40 <Soul_keeper> the difference might be something like   1 WU per hour with HT disabled running 1 thread, compared to 2 WU per 1.3 hours with HT and 2 threads

23:41 <Soul_keeper> i gotta get motivated to bring my P4 back online for a race

23:44 <Soul_keeper> PovAddict,  do you own a c2d ?

23:58 <MikeC`> i agree you always get more output on p4 with ht enabled
