08:13 <dizzie> Hello Jay

08:16 <xcamel> 'lo diz

08:19 <dizzie> I got my 70mhz sparc working, now i just need to find a OS for it :) Not sure if FreeBSD will run on it

08:21 <xcamel> hmmm..

08:21 <xcamel> solaris?

08:21 <dizzie> I cant afford that

08:21 <dizzie> I'm sure FreeBSD will run on it

08:22 <xcamel> it might

08:22 <dizzie> Fedora will

08:22 <dizzie> But i have issues with yum :)

08:22 <xcamel> add carbon and you'll have a 'sparkintosh'

08:24 <dizzie> True, but its only 70mhz

08:24 <dizzie> Its more fun than usefull

08:26 <xcamel> yeah..

08:27 <xcamel> like clustered indys, and O2's.

08:28 <xcamel> SGI boxes..

08:30 <dizzie> This is in a indigo casing, not sure if its a "real" SGI Indigo though

08:32 <dizzie> oh speaking of cluster

09:07 <CoderForLife> did the Saturday store run on Sunday

09:07 <CoderForLife> hello dizzie xcamel

09:09 <CoderForLife> just had good service from - they had automatically renewed an SSL certificate I bought a year ago and was letting expire - I called and they instantly canceled the renewal and refunded it, no muss, no fuss

09:09 <xcamel>

09:09 <Romulus> <> (at

09:10 <CoderForLife> Hmm SGI

09:10 <xcamel> funny ho 'godaddy' used to be the #1 spammer host in the world...

09:10 <xcamel> that was for dizzie..

09:11 <CoderForLife> yup

09:11 <CoderForLife> how's the Audi, xcamel?

09:12 <xcamel> that car is a beast..

09:12 <CoderForLife> I bet

09:12 <dizzie> 64GB mem...

09:12 <CoderForLife> must be fun to drive

09:12 <xcamel> the dealer down there wanted me to drive it home...

09:12 <CoderForLife> sure he did

09:12 <xcamel> yeah, right...

09:12 <CoderForLife> in exchange for...

09:13 <xcamel> the S4 and a big wad of chash...

09:13 <CoderForLife> uh-huh

09:13 <xcamel> er cash even...

09:13 <CoderForLife> lol

09:13 <CoderForLife> cache

09:13 <dizzie> &currency convert 1825 USD DKK

09:13 <Romulus> dizzie: 1825.00 usd = 8591.55 dkk

09:14 <xcamel> going back to any state but NY, I might have done it..

09:14 <CoderForLife> how are taxes on that kind of purchase?

09:14 <dizzie> No clue

09:14 <dizzie> Like i care, i cant afford it anyway :)

09:14 <CoderForLife> tax question -> xcamel

09:15 <xcamel> tax isn't the biggest problem, it's the title xfer, and insurance.

09:16 <CoderForLife> ah

09:17 <dizzie> Wonder if its boinc approved :)

09:17 <xcamel> they were decent folks down there anyway..

09:17 <CoderForLife> auto dealers across the river in KY here used to advertise "if you don't libe in the state of Kentucky, you don't have to pay Kentucky state sales tax" - but just wait until you tried to get Ohio plates...

09:17 <CoderForLife> er live

09:18 <xcamel> oh, and there is this button on the dash....

09:18 <CoderForLife> a button?

09:18 <xcamel> "S" for 'sport mode'

09:18 <CoderForLife> lol

09:19 <xcamel> it goes from 'granny' to 'GODZILLA'

09:19 <CoderForLife> rotfl

09:19 <CoderForLife> let's loose the beast! =)

09:19 <xcamel> you think I'm kidding...

09:19 <CoderForLife> what does it do? un-strap 4 cylinders?

09:20 <xcamel>

09:20 <Romulus> <> (at

09:20 <xcamel> button #2

09:20 <xcamel> on the left

09:20 <CoderForLife> "S"

09:20 <CoderForLife> lol

09:21 <CoderForLife> what does "ESP' do?  drive the car by mind-reading?

09:21 <xcamel> turns on active antiroll, sets computer to phase II mode, stiffens suspension

09:22 <xcamel> ESP == electronic stability program

09:22 <xcamel> "S" also unleashes the full 430HP

09:25 <CoderForLife> all very cool

09:25 <xcamel> the mileage should bother me, but I'll order a custom plate for it...

09:25 <xcamel> "GAZOG"

09:25 <CoderForLife> lol

09:26 <xcamel> did I mention the $2400 'gas guzzler tax' in NY?

09:26 <xcamel> nice to live in the CCCP-NY

11:42 <BB_Laptop_> Mornin

11:53 *** wdsmia has joined #Boinc

12:08 <nickuwo> if I need a ptr to a char, like by using strtok, is there an easier way to do it then -- char semi ';';  char * sem = &semi; ?

12:11 <Didactylos> Hmmm. What else is a const char *? Something like.... maybe a string literal? :-p

12:11 <nickuwo> interesting....

12:12 <nickuwo> the pieces are starting to fall together

12:13 <Didactylos> Technically, it wastes a byte. But who cares about a byte? Besides, string pooling may recover it for you.

12:13 *** DerMeister has joined #boinc

12:13 <nickuwo> i c

12:14 <Didactylos> Wait...

12:14 <Didactylos> strtok, you say?

12:14 <nickuwo> ya

12:14 <Didactylos> That takes a C string anyway!

12:14 <Didactylos> You can have multiple delimiters.

12:14 <nickuwo> uh delimiters

12:14 <nickuwo> ?

12:14 <nickuwo> oh ya

12:15 <nickuwo> well I used strtok(pch, ';'); and it didn't like that

12:15 <Didactylos> If you pass a reference to a random char on the stack, bad things will happen if the next byte isn't 0.

12:16 <Didactylos> So, your &semi may work, but only by chance.

12:16 <Didactylos> Use ";"

12:16 <nickuwo> ok

12:16 <Didactylos> Or, take 30 seconds to look at a reference:

12:16 <Romulus> <> (at

12:16 <nickuwo> why would bad things happen if the next byte wasn't 0?

12:17 <nickuwo> That's where I got this from

12:17 <Didactylos> If will interpret the next byte as a character. And the next one. And so on. It's a massive unterminated string.

12:18 <nickuwo> I just didn't understand why they were using " " I thought that denoted a string... I forgot that strings are char [] in c...

12:18 <Didactylos> :-)

12:19 <Didactylos> Glad I could save you a few segfaults.

12:19 <nickuwo> hehe, me too. So it would try to tokenize the stack ?

12:20 <Didactylos> I'm not sure. It's undefined.

12:20 <DerMeister> No, it would just read along the stack until it founds a '\0' - or until it crashes - in order to find the end of the list with delimeters

12:20 <Didactylos> ...and I don't particularly feel like trying it.

12:21 <DerMeister> Hehe... Well, as long it is just reading it should either crash or split the string in some strange parts...

12:22 <DerMeister> writing to some random lokation in the ram is somewhat more fun ;)

12:22 <Didactylos> Indeed ;-)

12:23 <nickuwo> oh i c, because it's looking for the end of the delimiters... denoted by the string terminator '\0'

12:25 <DerMeister> correct

15:37 <PovAddict> it's like redhat; free software, paid support

15:38 <dizzie> Yeah version bloddy.old and reduced contents

15:38 <dizzie> It works with FreeBSD 7 :)

15:50 <Zombie> Hello.

15:50 <Zombie> I'm interested in setting up Boinc on Linux to work with Seti at home.

15:50 <dizzie> Good choice

15:50 <dizzie> cli or gui ?

15:51 *** efc has joined #boinc

15:57 <efc> Moo

15:59 <dizzie> Hello efc :)

15:59 <Zombie> dizzie: Well, both.

15:59 <dizzie> Zombie: which distro ?

15:59 <PovAddict> Zombie: ask an actual question :)

15:59 <dizzie> He is

15:59 <dizzie> :P

15:59 <Zombie> I have both the CLI, boincmgr, and the KDE Boinc applications.

16:00 <Zombie> Mandriva.

16:00 <Zombie> 2008.1

16:00 <Zombie> Cutting edge.

16:00 <dizzie> *cough*

16:00 <dizzie> Sure :)

16:00 <PovAddict> dizzie: sorry I didn't see any message from him with a questionmark on it

16:00 <Zombie> Alright.

16:00 <Zombie> I have setup the boincmgr with all my subscription data

16:00 <dizzie> Zombie: go to boinc homepage, and fetch the "vanilla" boinc (the named *ubuntu* will work)

16:01 <Zombie> But when I restart boinc It says that no subscriptions are attacked.

16:01 <Zombie> But when I restart boinc It says that no subscriptions are attached,

16:02 <dizzie> in boincmngr, have you attached any projects

16:02 <PovAddict> Zombie: you used the Attach project wizard to add SETI and it succeeded?

16:03 <Zombie> Yes. The GUI always says that the next taskis deferred 23 hours

16:03 <dizzie> PovAddict: can you recommend a WM less than 1mb (hehe i only got a 4GB drive in my Sparc)

16:03 <dizzie> Gnome and KDE is NO! :)

16:04 <PovAddict> I have no idea

16:04 <Zombie> BOINC is not running (no lockfiles found).                      [  OK  ]

16:04 <Zombie> The BOINC client requires initialization (no projects attached).[WARNING]

16:04 <Zombie> Starting BOINC client as a daemon:                              [  OK  ]

16:04 <dizzie> Fluxbox maybe?

16:04 <PovAddict> twm if you like oldskool torture

16:04 <dizzie> Ahahaha

16:04 <dizzie> can aswell install win95 :p

16:04 <PovAddict> vtwm has multiple desktops and stuff :)

16:05 <efc> there's an ice-somethin

16:05 <dizzie> Now you are not funny

16:05 <PovAddict> Zombie: if the manager shows something in the projects tab, you DO have projects attached and the init script is wrong

16:05 <dizzie> efc: IceWM iirc

16:05 <dizzie> That works even with no mouse

16:06 <Zombie> I start boincmgr in userland, but I run the script as root.

16:06 <Zombie> Can that create problems?

16:06 <PovAddict> that depends on how BOINC was installed

16:06 <dizzie> It has to be started as a service, everything else is no-root

16:06 <PovAddict> and I don't think anyone here knows how it's packaged in mandriva

16:07 <dizzie> Or

16:07 <Zombie> Its a clone of the Fedora package.

16:07 <dizzie> Get the src

16:07 <PovAddict> dizzie: if he already has it installed, why make things complicated... you're making him go steps backwards and start over :)

16:07 <dizzie> Sorry :)

16:07 <Zombie> I did build it from source RPM. I "sponsored" the package.

16:08 <dizzie> You what?

16:08 <dizzie> Sponsored??

16:08 <PovAddict> what I've seen in other distros is: you run the script as root, the start script takes care of starting the actual daemon as another user

16:08 <dizzie> sh <boinc installer>.sh

16:08 <dizzie> cd BOINC

16:08 <dizzie> ./run_client

16:08 <dizzie> done :)

16:08 <Zombie> I was the original advocate for the inclusion of boinc in Mandriva.

16:09 *** siof has quit IRC

16:09 <dizzie> What was the old name of Mandriva

16:09 <Zombie> Mandrake.

16:09 <dizzie> Ahh

16:09 <dizzie> That explains it

16:09 <dizzie> Anyway

16:10 <dizzie> Do what i said, or read the guide/howto

16:10 <Zombie> Lets just assume I already have it installed and move on.

16:10 <dizzie> There isnt any native Mandriva packages

16:10 <dizzie> then cd <boinc dir>

16:10 <dizzie> ./run_client

16:11 <xcamel> the ubuntu package will work for mandriva

16:11 <xcamel> if you're running x

16:11 <Zombie> There's a reason I'm doing it this way. So I can deploy boinc network wide using urpmi tools

16:11 <dizzie> PovAddict, check your PM please

16:13 <Zombie> I'm in. Now.

16:13 <Zombie> I'm in advanced mode boincmgr

16:13 <Zombie> Okay?

16:15 <PovAddict> Zombie: whoever made the package never tested it and has no idea how BOINC platforms work :)

16:15 <PovAddict> that's what it means

16:15 <PovAddict> what BOINC version is it?

16:17 <dizzie> Mandrivaflavour

16:17 <dizzie> I like vanilla, they work :)

16:18 <PovAddict> I like flavored ones that work :)

16:18 <dizzie> Same thing

16:18 <dizzie> Zombie: my advice, go to the website and get the one named *ubuntu* It works, and no its not a Ubuntuflavour, they just call it that

16:19 <PovAddict> Zombie: you can work around that problem with a cc_config.xml making the *correct* Linux name the "alternate platform"

16:19 <efc> &zip clayton, GA

16:19 <Romulus> Bugger all, I dunno, efc.

16:20 <dizzie> I wanna call mine 1686-Spongebob then :)

16:20 <dizzie> i686 even

16:20 <PovAddict> Zombie: gave you link through PM

16:21 <PovAddict> (because otherwise Romulus will try to load it, and it's a "one-time link" :P)

16:21 <dizzie> http://localhost/

16:21 <dizzie> :p

16:21 <PovAddict> dizzie: it's a "temporary webserver" script; as soon as the file is downloaded once, the server quits

16:22 <dizzie> Figures

16:22 *** siofwolves has joined #boinc

16:27 <xcamel> things are really starting to spark up..

16:28 <dizzie> Its below 15c here

16:30 <Zombie> I think its working, but I'd like to pastebin some requests

16:31 <Zombie>

16:32 <Zombie> Why is it only getting 0 new tasks every time?

16:33 <PovAddict> it got one task the first time

16:33 <PovAddict> the second time it didn't *ask* for any, probably because you forced it to update immediately

16:39 <Zombie> I see.

16:39 <Zombie> Would one task be one packet of data from the Seti@Home server?

16:42 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

16:51 <Zombie> Another question, how can I visualize the Processing of the way Seti Classic did?

16:52 <PovAddict> click on the task on the list

16:52 <PovAddict> click Show Graphics

16:53 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

16:56 <Zombie> What does it mean when a task ends in a "Computation error?"

16:56 <PovAddict> it means just that... it had a computation error and it was aborted

16:57 <efc> If it does it a lot you might become concerned

16:57 <Zombie> When I click "Show Graphics" thats what happens.

16:57 <Zombie> Every time.

16:57 <PovAddict> then don't :)

16:57 <dizzie> I had that on FreeBSD, and guess why... i386-mandrive-gnu-linux (or whatever) is the cause

16:57 <PovAddict> "if it hurts when you move your arm, don't move it"

16:57 <PovAddict> dizzie: you ran i386-mandriva-gnu-linux app in FreeBSD?

16:58 <Zombie> Please stop distro flaming.

16:58 <dizzie> No i had errors too and my box was shown as "unknown"

16:58 <dizzie> It is not, but

16:58 <dizzie> *mandriva* is not understood by the server

16:58 <dizzie> I'm thru here... not in the mood

16:59 <PovAddict> Zombie:

16:59 <Romulus> <> (at

16:59 <PovAddict> signal 8 is "floating point exception"... the graphics must be dividing by zero or something :)

17:01 <Zombie> Let me try the KDE Front end.

17:01 <PovAddict> although I thought SETI was already using a separate application for graphics

17:01 <Zombie> What port does kboincmgr use?

17:01 <Zombie> er

17:01 <Zombie> What port does boincmgr use?

17:01 <PovAddict> so if the graphics application crashes, the science app would be still alive and not give an error

17:01 <PovAddict> Zombie: 31416

17:01 <PovAddict> kboincmgr is weird

17:02 <dizzie> Glad i only use cli apps, they always work :)

17:02 <PovAddict> you need to give it hostname and port to connect to the core client and *also* the path to client_state.xml...

17:03 <CoderForLife> re-hi

17:03 <dizzie> Hello

17:03 <PovAddict> dizzie: yeah but boinc_cmd is ugly :)

17:03 <CoderForLife> some thunderbumpers moving in

17:03 <dizzie> Who cares aslong as it cruch units :)

17:03 <PovAddict> its output is neither user friendly nor easy to parse by a script!

17:03 <dizzie> Wuzz :)

17:03 <DerMeister> boincview just works and is quite easy to use :)

17:04 <dizzie> What DerMeister just said :)

17:04 <dizzie> Ahahaha

17:04 <PovAddict> too bad it's Windoze only

17:04 <PovAddict> but runs on Wine

17:04 <dizzie> boncview is a website iirc

17:05 <DerMeister> No, it's a program, just like kboincmgr but better

17:05 <DerMeister> However, it seems to be quite dead. No more news for ages

17:05 * dizzie slaps PovAddict with a non-installed Xsystem

17:06 <PovAddict> dizzie: stop living in the last century :)

17:06 <dizzie> I love you too :)

17:06 <PovAddict> if you won't install X, get an image viewer that works on the console (like via svga)

17:06 <dizzie> I like free mem and processes = no freaking X!

17:23 <ELGono> x-plane is pretty fun

17:23 <dizzie> Friend was messing around, so he got mplayer to play a movie using ascii :)

17:23 <ELGono> dizzie: just option -vo aa

17:23 <ELGono> it's a standard since years

17:23 <PovAddict> use libcaca, not aalib...

17:24 <PovAddict> so you get colors

20:20 <Soul_keeper> KathrynM, i want rain and/or snow

20:20 <Soul_keeper> got any of that ?

20:20 <KathrynM> all I got is miserable heat and humidity

20:21 <Soul_keeper> well that's no fun

20:21 <Soul_keeper> that's lizard weather

20:21 <KathrynM> lol

20:22 <CoderForLife> somebody put a bow on this storm

20:23 <KathrynM> well, the sooner I get the w&@^ week started, the sooner it will be over.  T-5 days and counting until my summer break.

20:23 <Soul_keeper> nice

20:23 <KathrynM> CoderForLife, can you gift wrap it for Soul_keeper

20:24 <CoderForLife> Accuweather is not very accurate for me - tells me I have a thunderstorm when it's not raining, and tells me it's partly cloudy when I'm gettng hammered and the lights go out

20:24 <Soul_keeper> what about local weather channels ?  they accurate ?

20:24 <CoderForLife> they roll down the window and look outside

20:24 <Soul_keeper> heh

20:25 * CoderForLife thinks about how to handle characters in file names that aren't supported in XML

20:25 <PovAddict> like?

20:25 <Romulus> like is saying Clemenceau about military "the war was something too serious to let it to military" ( it was a french general ) , i say about politics :), PovAddict

20:26 <CoderForLife> Kathryn's special pic.jpg

20:26 <CoderForLife> I need to translate the apostrophe to &apos; I guess

20:27 <KathrynM> oh good, I'm not the only one who has trouble with accuweather.

20:27 <CoderForLife> and & to &amp;

20:27 <KathrynM> they had thunderstorms as my current weather all weekend and not once did it storm

20:27 <KathrynM> heck, it wasn't raining most of the time.

20:27 <KathrynM> anywhoooooo, later gators

20:27 <CoderForLife> there were thunderstorms *somewhere*

20:28 <PovAddict> and &quot; for "

20:28 <CoderForLife> ok tc KathrynM

20:28 <CoderForLife> yep PovAddict - but Windows doesn't support " in file names, does it?

20:28 <PovAddict> or, if you can be *sure* your filenames won't have "]]>" on them, use a CDATA block so you don't have to escape stuff

20:28 <CoderForLife> just like < and >

20:29 <PovAddict> Unix supports any character in filenames except the slash and the null character (\0)

20:29 <CoderForLife> o i c

20:29 <CoderForLife> hmm

20:29 <PovAddict> (filenames with funny characters are hard to deal with, but are allowed by filesystems)

20:29 <CoderForLife> including > and <  ??

20:29 <PovAddict> (yes you can even have a newline in a filename)

20:30 <CoderForLife> slash?

20:30 <PovAddict> no slash - only exception

20:30 <CoderForLife> the redirection chars?

20:30 <CoderForLife> &lt; and &gt;

20:30 <Romulus> No idea, CoderForLife.

20:31 <PovAddict> filenames can have > and < on them; you just put "quotes" around them or \< escape them if you want to use them in a shell

20:31 <CoderForLife> hmm  the thick plottens

20:31 <PovAddict> I once had a buffer overflow in my Code (overwrote the nul terminator in a string)

20:31 <PovAddict> that string was used for a filename later

20:32 <CoderForLife> lol  you hacked yourself

20:32 <PovAddict> ended up with a file with strange control characters on its name, 'twas hard to delete...

20:33 * CoderForLife makes a note to review CDATA when the sun comes up again

20:33 <PovAddict> create a file called "--help", then try to delete it :)

20:33 <PovAddict> "rm --help" will print help for the rm command

20:33 <CoderForLife> sum phun =)

20:33 <PovAddict> rm ./--help

20:34 <CoderForLife> yup

20:34 * CoderForLife watches the storms drift away

20:38 * CoderForLife decides to drift toward the bed with his XML book

20:38 <CoderForLife> cya folks
