05:37 <efc> I know there must be worst Code on the planet than what I work on, but its got to be up there
05:39 <CoderForLife> one measure is if bad code is not removed, just new code added to ovveride the bad code

05:39 <CoderForLife> o i c
05:39 <efc> They have been doing that on this code base for 25 years
05:40 <efc> what they do is they hex-patch to figure out to fix stuff, then later put an equivilient jump in the source code
05:40 <CoderForLife> soory you feel that way about my old buddy Ed, Ed
05:41 <efc> Over time, this gets really, really bad
05:41 <efc> I'm sure his stuff is great, I just like taking the opportunity to say something nasty

13:51 <Didactylos> I don't mind a lively discussion, but reading dozens of essays is not my idea of fun.
13:53 <hawmps> it's a big deal to people, that they choose to ignore in any realistic fashion
14:17 <Didactylos> How many times have SETI inflated their credit? Or is it some other project that does that a lot?
14:19 <saenger> seti hasn't that much, they only distribute a sloppy app and give a lot credits to those optimised but still not included after many month

15:19 <Tank_Master> the project files are still stroed in (by default) programs files\boinc
15:20 <zombie67> I seem to recall during the installation, there were dwo different paths shown
15:20 <Tank_Master> the data files are stored in the user profile for the newly created account (I believe)
15:20 <zombie67> which is where?
15:21 <Tank_Master> c:\docs n settings\whever the new account it creats\
15:21 <sacarde> do you know Lars Baush ?
15:21 <zombie67> yeah
15:22 <zombie67> there are 3 folders in docs & settings

15:22 <Tank_Master> are you seeing hidden folders?
15:22 <Tank_Master> ahh, boinc baster
15:23 <Tank_Master> can you see in there?
15:23 <zombie67> under there, are
15:23 <zombie67> desktop, my docs, favs, start
15:23 <Tank_Master> you need to unhide system and hidden folders

15:25 <zombie67> still nothing
15:27 <zombie67> dangit, why is this so hard?
15:28 <MTughan> C:\Documents and Settings/boinc_master/Application Settings?
15:28 <zombie67> according to search, there is no "Projects" folder
15:29 <zombie67> there is no aplication settings
15:29 <zombie67> there is application data
15:29 <zombie67> and local settings
15:30 <zombie67> Aplication Data has only one folder called Microsoft
15:30 <zombie67> yet there it is, BOINC is running and crunching.
15:31 <zombie67> this was a clean install too
15:31 <zombie67> not upgraded
15:32 <zombie67> I am going to try reinstalling to see if it will show me the paths again
15:32 <zombie67> first I have to uninstall
15:33 <zombie67> it says docs & settings/all users/application Data/BOINC
15:34 <zombie67> now completing the install
15:36 <MTughan> Seems I don't remember all that I should... Guess it is Application Data, not Application Settings.
15:36 <MTughan> Maybe I'm getting it confused with /Library/Application Settings/BOINC Data.

18:14 <Soul_keeper> for 1040
18:14 <xcamel> form 1040 is the official federal tax form number

19:10 <KathrynM> ah yes, I remember doing that
19:10 <KathrynM> and screwing it up the first time ;)
19:10 <Soul_keeper> probably /usr/lib/java/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
19:10 <KathrynM> there should be a poorly written faq on sun's site
19:10 <Soul_keeper> by default many plugins still use /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib/mozilla/plugins
19:11 <xcamel> that's the one - it does run well in FF/javaplug
19:11 <PovAddict> I have OpenJDK
19:11 <xcamel> same diff
19:11 <Soul_keeper> just make that symbolic link, then restart FF and open about:plugins in your address bar
19:11 <xcamel> 1.6 ish?
19:12 <PovAddict> I don't have any libjavaplugin
19:12 <Soul_keeper> ln -s /usr/lib/java/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/firefox*/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
19:12 <xcamel> search for Robert Wexler
19:12 <PovAddict> /usr/lib/java has only three SWT-related files
19:12 <xcamel> er not..
19:12 <xcamel> libjavaplugin_oji.so
19:12 <PovAddict> "locate libjavaplugin" returned nothing
19:13 <Soul_keeper> then it isn't installed right
19:13 <xcamel> find /* -name 'libjava*'
19:14 <Soul_keeper> they should have compiled the browser plugin with whatever package you installed
19:14 <PovAddict> /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/lib/amd64/libjava.so
19:15 <Soul_keeper> you can try that
19:15 <Soul_keeper> never really messed with openjdk
19:16 <xcamel> weird.. now mine is broken..
19:16 <PovAddict> hmm looks like Konqueror has special handling of Java
19:16 <PovAddict> doesn't show in Konqueror plugin list
19:16 <PovAddict> instead, if asks for path to the 'java' command line app in a different configuration panel
19:17 * Soul_keeper runs off
19:21 <PovAddict> I hate how they compare BOINC credits with money
19:22 <PovAddict> as if the world's economics worked so well...
19:23 <PovAddict> in the real world, if better tools make you produce stuff twice as fast, you as a worker don't get paid twice more; so? just because it's done that way with money doesn't mean we have to do the same
19:24 <PovAddict> projects wouldn't lose anything paying twice more in that case
19:25 *** zombie67 has left #boinc
19:36 *** blkno1 has joined #boinc
19:44 <Soul_keeper> shoulda just stuck to counting WUs :)
19:46 <PovAddict> indeed
19:46 <PovAddict> if you do work twice as fast (due to an optimized app), you instantly get twice the credits that way
19:46 <PovAddict> same credits per WU (1), more WUs per day = more credits per day
19:50 <KathrynM> the stats used to excite me. not anymore though.
19:50 <KathrynM> maybe it's the whole burnout thing
19:51 <KathrynM> i should hit the million mark in about 2 days
19:51 <KathrynM> woo freaking hoo
19:51 <KathrynM> :/
19:52 <xcamel> congrats..
19:52 <KathrynM> thanks
19:52 <KathrynM> once you hit a million, it takes forever and a day to get to another meaningful (whatever that means) milestone
19:52 <Soul_keeper> i need to go bowling
19:52 <PovAddict> substract a million from the number
19:53 <PovAddict> so you can say "yeah I reached a thousand!" again :)
19:53 <Soul_keeper> boss just called me and offered me tomarrow off work as well, not sure how i wanna handle that
19:53 <KathrynM> lol
19:54 <Soul_keeper> nobody wants to go bowling with me, so i have to rent a whole lane for myself ...
19:54 <KathrynM> I'll go with you. exceptt the distance might be ap roblem
19:54 <KathrynM> and the whole i have to go to w@*@ thing
19:56 * xcamel used to love bowling
19:57 <xcamel> hmm... 2.72" of rain - pond plumbing totally overloaded
20:01 <blkno1> Anyone here have an N800?
20:09 <xcamel> wazzat?
20:09 <MTughan> Nokia N800. Miniature PC.
20:10 <blkno1> yeah I just flashed the firmware, it worked.
20:10 <blkno1> 1st time I tried it didnt.
20:10 <MTughan> Runs Linux, right? Trying to run BOINC on it?
20:10 <MTughan> I read about the N800 in Linux Pro Magazine.
20:10 <blkno1> yeah, take about 3 years for a WU
20:10 <PovAddict> first *5* times I tried jailbreaking my iPod touch, I made it unusable :)
20:10 <blkno1> be neat though
20:10 <MTughan> Heh.
20:11 <PovAddict> (on the next 5 times, I got each time one step further and broke something in a way I had to start over; but at least I could still use it)
20:11 <MTughan> Hardly unusable then.
20:12 <PovAddict> on the first attempts, I did make it unbootable
20:16 <KathrynM> more fun when you make your entire computer unbootable
20:16 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc
20:16 <PovAddict> or not
20:16 <KathrynM> heh, kernel panic :O
20:16 * KathrynM freaked out
20:17 <PovAddict> if you make your computer unbootable, at least you know you can fully format and reinstall to get it back working
20:17 <KathrynM> true
20:17 <PovAddict> (as a last resort)
20:17 <KathrynM> it helps to have a second distro install
20:17 <PovAddict> with the iPod, first time was OMG I BRICKED IT?!
20:17 <KathrynM> failing that, live cds are a life saver
20:17 * KathrynM is eager to upgrade her firmware on her ipod
20:18 <KathrynM> just waiting for an itunes gift card from home.
20:18 <PovAddict> careful with the AppStore
20:18 <KathrynM> oh
20:18 <PovAddict> it's like buying ringtones, you could end up paying for silly stuff without conciously knowing :)
20:19 <KathrynM> ah
20:19 <KathrynM> I told mom to send a 20 dollar card.
20:19 <KathrynM> Enough for the firmware and a few apps
20:19 * KathrynM wonders where I could get a giftcard in Korea
20:19 <PovAddict> ...the bay is the place to be...
20:21 <KathrynM> heh, I love reading the spam akismet catches on my blog
20:22 <PovAddict> ...â™ª do what you want 'cos a pirate is free â™ª...
20:23 <MTughan> ...
20:23 <KathrynM> ;-)
20:23 <KathrynM> err .-)
20:23 <PovAddict> (I'm *not* suggesting that the 2.0 firmware is available on the 'net in thousands of sites)
20:23 <xcamel> er X)
20:23 <KathrynM> and I don't want to brick my ipod either
20:23 <MTughan> For some reason, I thought you meant a pirate radio station...
20:24 <PovAddict> it's technically safe for sure
20:24 <KathrynM> <---- w*@& over there --------------------------------->
20:24 <PovAddict> (not legally safe)
