12:14 <MTughan> According to BOINCStats, I'll hit 300,000 in mid August. I think it'll be a few days before that, but it'll be soon...

12:14 <quail> kewl

12:17 <zombie67> cool!

12:17 <zombie67> MT, with 6.2.14, I can't quit BOINC.

12:17 <zombie67> on Windows

12:18 <zombie67> the manager quits, but BOINC and the tasks still run

12:18 <MTughan> Register it as a bug, someone on boinc-dev has the same problem.

12:19 <MTughan> Does choosing "Shut Down connected client" shut it down?

12:19 <Didactylos> What sort of install?

12:20 <zombie67> the default, with the exception, I unchecked the use BOINC screensaver

12:20 * Didactylos can't remember what the default is.

12:21 <zombie67> I don't recall an option to choose regular vs. service.

12:21 <zombie67> with is with XP64

12:21 <Didactylos> If it's the service install, then not quitting is the expected behaviour.

12:21 <Didactylos> That should be the default.

12:21 <MTughan> Is it called a protected install?

12:21 <Didactylos> Yes, think so.

12:22 <zombie67> how can i tell if it is running as a service?

12:23 <Didactylos> Hmm.

12:23 <MTughan> "Well if you look at the registry then the ENABLEPROTECTEDMODEACCESS registry entry should be set to "1" if it was installed as a service."

12:23 <Didactylos> Go to the Messages tab, and look for....

12:23 <MTughan> Where that should be, I don't know.

12:23 <Didactylos> 15/07/2008 09:13:13||Executing as a daemon

12:24 <MTughan> Or that.

12:24 <zombie67> There is "Running as a deamon"

12:24 <zombie67> okay, how does one start/stop a service again?

12:24 <MTughan> Start->Run, compmgmt.msc

12:24 <MTughan> Don't remember in there.

12:24 <Didactylos> Suspending BOINC will suspend the service.

12:25 <zombie67> but I want to fully quit to do things like add optimized apps, manage xml files

12:25 <Didactylos> Then use "Shut down core client"

12:25 <MTughan> And to start it?

12:26 <Didactylos> Or services.msc

12:26 <zombie67> i thought there was a GUI way to stop/start services

12:26 <Didactylos> services.msc

12:26 <MTughan> services.msc is it. compmgmt.msc is a collection of stuff.

12:26 <zombie67> where is that located?

12:26 <MTughan> Use the Run dialog.

12:27 <zombie67> you're kidding, right?

12:27 <Didactylos> Or go via control panel.

12:27 <Didactylos> But run is quicker

12:27 <MTughan> Unless you want to navigate to C:\Windows or C:\Windows\system32 each time.

12:27 <zombie67> if i use run, then I have to remember the command

12:27 <Didactylos> MTughan: control panel->admin tools->services

12:27 <MTughan> Run remembers the last command entered.

12:28 <MTughan> Didactylos: I'm doing all this from memory. :P

12:28 <zombie67> ah.  there it is.

12:28 <zombie67> thanks

12:28 <Didactylos> MTughan: run remembers ALL the commands you type :-)

12:28 <zombie67> funny, the install never said that it was installing as a service

12:28 <zombie67> that I recall, anyway

12:30 <zombie67> in it even a choice with 6.x?

12:30 <MTughan> Protected install option.

12:30 <zombie67> Protected install option = service?  How would we know that?

12:30 <MTughan> By reading boinc_dev. xD

12:30 <zombie67> why not call it "Service install option"?

12:31 <Didactylos> zombie67: the idea is nobody *has* to know.

12:31 <zombie67> well, that's obviously not true

12:31 <Didactylos> Lots of programs quietly use a service to do the work.

12:31 <zombie67> or I wouldn't be having this conversation

12:31 <zombie67> the point:  the default behavior of the install CHANGED from regular to service

12:32 <zombie67> and it doesn't tell you that anywhere.

12:32 <zombie67> so if someone is familiar with 5.x or earlier, and then upgrades to 6.x, they will have no idea what's going on.

12:33 <Didactylos> Believe me, this will be the least of their problems.

12:33 <zombie67> question:  is the service installation what caused the data files to move under Docs & Settings?

12:33 <Didactylos> No.

12:33 <MTughan> That would be the install.

12:34 <Didactylos> That's required to make Vista behave, besides being good practice - the files shouls ALWAYS have been there.

12:34 <zombie67> So another change, but for a different reason.  At least you get a clue to that one.  It lists two paths on the install dialog.

12:34 <Didactylos> Dumping them in Prog Files was just wrong.

12:34 <zombie67> I agree.  But it is a change, that also caught me.

12:35 <zombie67> took forever to find where to put mu opt apps.

12:35 <MTughan> Are there any release notes to read, about some of the major changes?

12:35 <zombie67> my

12:36 <zombie67> I don't see any:

12:36 <Romulus> Title: Download BOINC client software (at

12:36 <Didactylos> Who knows. It's all a big mess.

12:36 <MTughan> Agreed.

12:36 <zombie67> there are release notes for the "default" version (5.10.45).  but not anything newer

12:36 <Didactylos> And if DA hadn't pissed off all his contributors, maybe he would have documentation already.

12:37 <Didactylos> The problem with wanting to do everything yourself is you HAVE to do everything yourself.

12:38 <zombie67> FWIW, I agree that data files should always be in a different, user-owned location.  I grew up on Unix, and that is what I am used to.

12:39 <PovAddict> well not for BOINC; data should be in a different, system-global location (doesn't make sense for each user in a machine to have his own WUs

12:40 <Didactylos> /var/db/ or Docs&Settings\All Users\

12:41 <PovAddict> Ubuntu puts it in /var/lib/boinc-client

12:41 <Didactylos> Ubuntu would.

12:41 <Didactylos> :-D

14:15 <zombie67> i need some help.

14:16 <zombie67> vtu's server is so old, it doesn't send XP32 work to XP64 machines

14:16 <zombie67> so I need an app_info.xml and the application

14:17 <zombie67> I may be able to work up the app_info.xml file by copying another, and making mods

14:17 <MTughan> I'm getting one up...

14:17 <zombie67> but where is the app located?  what's the standard path?

14:18 <zombie67> MT, with so many projects needing 700+mb of RAM, I decided to upgrade all my machines to 1gb/core

14:18 <MTughan>

14:18 <MTughan> Cool.

14:18 <zombie67> so for all my 4 and 8 core machines, that means I also need to upgrade to XP64

14:19 <saenger> linux64 would have been ok as well ;)

14:19 <MTughan> Less projects have apps for Linux than for Windows.

14:19 <zombie67> heh.  yeah, but less projects support linux

14:19 <zombie67> yep

14:20 <saenger> but gpu is only possible under lin for now :P

14:20 <zombie67> TRVTH

14:20 <saenger> unless you run folding in parallel

14:20 <zombie67> okay, so were are apps located?

14:34 <jackygrahamez> on windows?

14:35 <zombie67> no, on the BOINC project server

14:35 <zombie67> I want to download an application, where would that be?

14:36 <zombie67> apps.php is the page that shows the versions

14:36 <zombie67> but I am looking for the actual app

14:37 <zombie67> it has to be someplace public, so the clients can get them.

14:37 <jackygrahamez> sorry I was having an assanine conversation

14:37 <jackygrahamez> I'm squeezed together now with all the other helpdesk because I had to evacuate my former office

14:38 <zombie67> ug

14:38 <jackygrahamez> mold and termites

14:38 <jackygrahamez> can't you get the app from download?

14:39 <jackygrahamez> which project?

14:39 <Romulus> It has been said that which project is RS, jackygrahamez

14:39 <zombie67> vtu

14:39 <saenger> [20:16]<zombie67>vtu's server is so old, it doesn't send XP32 work to XP64 machines

14:39 <saenger> [20:16]<zombie67>so I need an app_info.xml and the application

14:39 <saenger> [20:17]<zombie67>I may be able to work up the app_info.xml file by copying another, and making mods

14:39 <zombie67> you mean "projectURL/download"?

14:39 <jackygrahamez> checking

14:40 <jackygrahamez> depends if they allow indexing on it

14:40 <jackygrahamez> yes its index

14:40 <zombie67> is that the normal place for the applications?

14:41 <jackygrahamez> apps is not intended as world readable

14:41 <zombie67> ?  would have to be

14:42 <zombie67> otherwise, BOINC client would not be able to download it

14:42 <jackygrahamez> when you update an app by running update_version it copies the application files to download

14:42 <jackygrahamez> download is where the client communicates

14:42 <zombie67> wow.  the download folder at VTU is THOUSANDS of items

14:42 <jackygrahamez> yes

14:43 <jackygrahamez> they are not cleaning out the directory, all the input files must fannout to subdirectories, but they did not delete the original input files

14:44 <zombie67> okay.  got it.  Thanks!

14:51 <jackygrahamez> I had an idea I mentioned in the list, I would like to figure out how we can motivate the general population to participate in BOINC. To achieve this, I would like to see a random telephone survey to get people's opinions. What do you think about that?

14:52 *** KathrynM_ has joined #boinc

14:52 <jackygrahamez> Hi KathrynM_

14:52 <saenger> i would never ever answer to cold calls other as with swearing

14:53 <jackygrahamez> trust me I know, I volunteered for a political campaign recently

14:53 <saenger> that's plain spam

14:53 <saenger> cold callers should be jailed

14:54 <jackygrahamez> how else are we going to get a random sample of opinions?

14:54 <saenger> not the poor guys'n'gals in the call center, but those who pay them

14:55 <jackygrahamez> I read the email about the poll, but that survey is targeted towards people familiar with BOINC

14:56 <jackygrahamez> There is a significant sample biase when you survey people on the street

14:58 <saenger> you will never get any answers from people with a senxe for privacy with telephone spam

14:58 <saenger> that's a bias as well

14:58 <Didactylos> So, you want to run a poll where 99.98% of respondents have no idea what you're talking about?

14:59 <jackygrahamez> yes

14:59 <Didactylos> Why?

14:59 <jackygrahamez> To figure out how to make BOINC appealing to them

15:00 <saenger> get the adresses from some official source with rightful access to the adresses (no data mining company, but a city council or such), let them inform the possible participants beforehand what's planned, and let them opt in or out.

15:01 <saenger> that's a bit tedious and will take time and effirt, but imho it's the only legal way

15:01 <jackygrahamez> ok, I thought there might be some legal stuff, I do have some legal friends to vet the idea with

15:02 <saenger> i know that in the states the privacy is not that good evolved as in europe

15:02 <jackygrahamez> not something I'm rushing into

15:02 <saenger> perhaps it's legal there (but no way legitimate imho)

15:02 <saenger> in europe unsolicited telephone contact is forbidden

15:02 <jackygrahamez> we have certain rules about telephone solicitations

15:02 <saenger> afaik

15:03 <jackygrahamez> so how do European's do market analysis?

15:03 <saenger> with volunteers?

15:04 <jackygrahamez> I'm thinking in a very broad conceptual way

15:04 <saenger> by looking at what goes over the cashier?

15:05 <saenger> I get the occasional telephone spam myself, and never have bothered to sue them for now

15:05 <saenger> but they will not get any answers from me

15:05 <jackygrahamez> so if a company was interested in developing a new product and they wanted to see if people would buy it, they must have a legal way to research

15:05 <saenger> besides: bugger off, you scum

15:06 <Didactylos> jackygrahamez: focus groups, street surveys...

15:06 <jackygrahamez> ok

15:06 <saenger> privacy is far more important than money

15:07 <saenger> privat companies don't have the right to abuse my personal data for profit

15:07 <jackygrahamez> I understand

15:07 <saenger> and my telephone unmber is my personal data

15:07 <Didactylos> In the UK, cold calling isn't banned outright.

15:07 <jackygrahamez> Well I'm not planning to call you

15:08 <Didactylos> But unlisted numbers and the do not call list must be respected.

15:08 <saenger> that wouldn't be a cold call, as we know each other from here ;)

15:08 *** KathrynM has quit IRC

15:08 <jackygrahamez> brb

15:10 <saenger> one possibility to get legal access to such possibilities is payback cards and such, if you subscribed to some Standard form contract you may have surrendered your privacy to that company

15:10 <saenger> one reason why i don't have such a big-brother card

15:17 <saenger> I just read the wikipedia about it (german version), and it's forbidden do do commercial cold calls, including market resaerch. it's not forbidden to do political polls. Link to german page:

19:48 <Soul_keeper> so you're working smart  ic

19:48 <xcamel> Glenn - I wandered around in a jag/range rover dealership for 45 minutes and no one ever approached me - I sent a pretty nasty letter to the owner.

19:49 <Soul_keeper> their loss right ?

19:49 <Rookie_69> I remember hearing about it.

19:49 *** efc has quit IRC

19:50 <xcamel> now I'm damned glad I didn't buy anything there.

19:50 <Rookie_69> Maybe if youn trimmed that 'stache and wore decent clothes they'd have come over...

19:50 <Rookie_69> Lol.

19:50 <xcamel> I had to buy the audi in PA - as the local dealers' crew is a bunch of asshats

19:51 <Rookie_69> Ah... Hence the trip to PA.

19:51 <xcamel> **and** the jerk was trying to make $5k on both sides of the sale.

19:52 <Soul_keeper> ever see the vw dealerships in germany ?   saw a think about them on tv

19:52 <xcamel> "I might have been born at night - but it wasn't last night...."

19:52 <xcamel> yup - like a giant VW vending machine...

19:53 <Soul_keeper> they are shaped like giant circular storage garages,   you walk in at the bottom tell them what kind of car you want, what color/features/etc.   then they press a button on the computer, and a robotic arm goes up and gets the one you selected

19:53 <Soul_keeper> that's cool

19:56 <xcamel> it is totally cool

19:57 <xcamel> btw - the RS4 is 30% Lamborghini

19:58 <xcamel> Audi bought them out

19:58 * Rookie_69 watched SK chance his timing chain...

19:59 <Rookie_69> ...change...
