00:11 <KathrynM> does the computation program call the graphics program?

00:11 <KathrynM> (hell, I don't even know if I have the right vocabulary to talk about this intelligently)

00:12 <PovAddict> no, it doesn't

00:12 <PovAddict> well, it does, but only if a v5 client tells it to start graphics

09:01 <Didactylos> Morning, KathrynM

09:01 <Didactylos> How do you all feel about a dialog asking:

09:02 <Didactylos> Are you sure you want to abort task "foo"?

09:03 <Didactylos> [Yes to all] [Yes] [Cancel]

09:03 <KathrynM> yes to all would be wonderful

09:04 <Didactylos> I'm not 100% sure about replacing [No] with [Cancel]

09:04 <Didactylos> We could have:

09:04 <Didactylos> [Yes to all] [Yes] [No] [No to all]

09:04 <xcamel> yes/no/all/reselect/cancel

09:05 <KathrynM> I'd say yes/yes to all/no/cancel

09:06 <Didactylos> The thing is, usually cancel implies cancelling the entire operation.

09:06 <Didactylos> Those you said yes to already will already be cancelled.

09:07 <Didactylos> Or am I worrying too much?

09:07 *** Eythan has quit IRC

09:07 <Didactylos> s/cancelled/aborted/

09:07 <KathrynM> hm

09:09 *** Eythan has joined #boinc

09:11 <Didactylos> People wouldn't expect cancel to reverse their previous decisions, would they?

09:11 <KathrynM> I wouldn't

09:12 <Didactylos> Well, the best thing to do now is try it out and see....

09:15 <xcamel> not to reverse, just to exit the dialog after "oops"

09:16 <Didactylos> That was my original thought.

09:16 <Didactylos> I hate second guessing myself.

09:34 <xcamel> galaxy zoo is still cool...

09:34 <xcamel> I got to see the sloan DSS in action...

09:35 <Didactylos> That the one where you categorise galaxies?

09:35 <xcamel> yup

09:58 <CoderForLife> home again

10:19 <quail> oh

10:19 <CoderForLife> I was just leaving the house when I heard the train come through down over the hill - the train usually comes through when I'm on my way back

10:19 <quail> damn uncomfortable sleeping at ya desk

10:20 <CoderForLife> didn't stop me

10:20 <CoderForLife> I slept probably a total of 3 hours last night, and that not all in one stretch

10:20 <quail> that no good

10:21 <CoderForLife> nope

10:21 <quail> hope you get better sleep tonight

10:21 <CoderForLife> makes for crappy code

10:21 <CoderForLife> I need good Code

10:21 <KathrynM> must be bad if it's code not Code

10:21 <CoderForLife> especially to help pay for the wall

10:22 <CoderForLife> yup - you caught the inflection in my voice

10:22 <quail> wall of code :-P

10:24 <CoderForLife> that sound you hear is ten of thousands of USDs flushing down into the hill

10:25 <quail> oh :-(

10:25 <CoderForLife> the wall plus a new patio on top will be $53,000

10:25 <quail> ouch

10:26 <CoderForLife> uh, yeah, big time

10:26 <CoderForLife> just *think* how many quad cores that is...

10:27 <CoderForLife> 2206

10:28 <CoderForLife> er, grid game score =)

10:28 <quail> ~150 quad cores

10:29 <CoderForLife> that would drain seti dry even faster

10:29 <quail> imagine your average credit

10:30 <CoderForLife> yep, "wall" is a new four-letter word

10:31 <KathrynM> how do we distinguish it from w*@& then?

10:32 <CoderForLife> |/\|@|_|_

10:32 <quail> your average credit be ~900000

10:32 <quail> with 600 cores

10:32 <CoderForLife> think of the electric bill

11:26 <CoderForLife> I can't sleep due to the itching

11:27 <CoderForLife> started after I took the birdfeeders down

11:37 <jackygrahamez> Oh well, I cannot find reference to the broadcast the blogger mentioned

11:38 <jackygrahamez> I wonder how much energy goes into "heats up the exhaust to 5,000 degrees Kelvin!!!"

11:38 <xcamel> way too much

11:38 <xcamel> sounds like a bit of a waste

11:39 <jackygrahamez> but diamonds are forever

11:39 <jackygrahamez> :-)

11:39 <xcamel> until you heat them

18:49 <ELGono> some story...

18:50 <ELGono> damn that movie was way to close to realitity

18:50 <CoderForLife> heh

18:50 <ELGono> dunno, if they picked out a suitable cat, too

18:53 *** efc has joined #boinc

19:01 <ELGono> was looking for perseid meteor shower

19:02 <ELGono> but just a few visible

19:02 <ELGono> maximum should be at night 11-12th

19:02 <CoderForLife> I was more egotistical - looking for a picture of me online

19:02 <CoderForLife> there was one with a magazine article

19:04 <CoderForLife> yes, yes Rommie - don't tell everyone my age

19:05 <ELGono> hehe

19:08 <CoderForLife> Stephen set up a webcam to take time lapse pictures of the construction of the retaining wall and patio

19:09 <PovAddict> ooh that will be fun to watch

19:10 <CoderForLife> yep - was a good idea

19:10 <CoderForLife> every 5 minutes

19:10 <CoderForLife> first test run tonight

19:11 <CoderForLife> actually - running now

19:13 <ELGono> url?

19:14 <CoderForLife> not on the Internet, yet

19:16 <PovAddict> http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/attachment/ticket/716/forum.png?format=raw <- opinion on forum layout?

19:17 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/6r62k9> (at boinc.berkeley.edu)

19:17 <PovAddict> I think the Send message button needs less "relevance"

19:18 <CoderForLife> perhaps, but it's not so bad

19:20 <ELGono> this is odd... if i move my mouse above my firefox tabs cpu usage is at 90%

19:20 <CoderForLife> Firefox loves to consume 90% CPU

19:20 *** jamiejackson has joined #boinc

19:20 <CoderForLife> brb  bio

19:24 <jamiejackson> seti@home ran alright for a day, but now it can't upload. i'm really new to boinc, and don't know what's up: http://pastebin.com/mf572620 <-- know what the scoop is?

19:25 <PovAddict> can't upload? strange

19:25 <PovAddict> SETI is currently out of work, but uploads should be working

19:26 <CoderForLife> uploads are not working

19:26 <PovAddict> ok, thanks for clarifying that, CFL (I don't run SETI)

19:26 <PovAddict> seti server status shows file_upload_handler as running but could be outdated

19:27 <CoderForLife> I have 13 WUs stuck in "uploading" status

19:27 <jamiejackson> thx, i'll browse some other projects

19:29 <CoderForLife> I just started running SETI again, I've been doing SETI since the very early days, yet have such a paltry accumulated amount of work done

19:30 <CoderForLife> just grabbed some more QMC work since SETI giveth not

19:35 <ELGono> remember we were saying "it's beta, it's beta" hehehe

19:35 <CoderForLife> heh

19:35 <CoderForLife> I think I started SETI in May 1998 IIRC

19:38 <ELGono> october 98 i joinded

19:40 <ELGono> astro pic has a nice shot today

19:44 <CoderForLife> yep

19:53 <CoderForLife> OK - with 3 hours sleep last night, I'm fading out here

19:53 <CoderForLife> tc boincfolks

19:53 <CoderForLife> gn

19:53 * CoderForLife sees he is already away

19:54 *** Lord^Anubis has quit IRC

20:04 <Soul_keeper> they still have the classpages for seti if you search google

20:06 * PovAddict tries to copy maps to his dad's Garmin from Linux

20:06 <PovAddict> did it wrong again, I guess

20:11 <Soul_keeper> PovAddict, does povray use gpu's or just cpu power these days ?

20:11 <PovAddict> only CPUs; 3.7 beta with built-in multithreading

20:12 <Soul_keeper> ok

20:16 <PovAddict> success!

20:16 * PovAddict goes outside to get GPS satellite signal

20:17 <Soul_keeper> excellent

20:17 <Soul_keeper> my dad wants a garmin, nice to know linux can work with it

20:23 <KathrynM> mornin

20:23 <Soul_keeper> KathrynM,  you watching the olympics ?

20:24 <KathrynM> I just woke up

20:24 <KathrynM> not a whole lot of fun to watch when there's korean narrative going on.

20:25 <PovAddict> Soul_keeper: actually... I had to use two Windows programs via Wine, and copy the final file to the SD memory; I didn't yet try connecting the garmin

20:26 <Soul_keeper> bummer

20:26 <Soul_keeper> not worth it imo unless it's fully linux native

20:31 <PovAddict> the kernel *definitely* supports it

20:32 <PovAddict> I just plugged it in, KDE showed two new storage devices

20:32 <PovAddict> (the internal memory and the SD card)

20:32 <PovAddict> not quite sure about software support (to actually put maps on it)

20:35 <Soul_keeper> ic

20:35 <Soul_keeper> what about gphoto2   ?

20:35 <PovAddict> what about it?

20:35 <PovAddict> (what is it?)

20:36 <Soul_keeper> i guess it's just downloading from

20:36 <Soul_keeper> i use it for my digital camera

20:36 <PovAddict> garmin maps aren't picture files...

20:38 <Soul_keeper> ok

21:49 <efc> the rhythm in my left hand has become horrific

21:49 <efc> it would be better if I sliced it off

21:51 <Soul_keeper> stop odin'  on coffee like that

22:09 *** Switchcat has quit IRC

22:21 * efc looks at roombas

22:22 <PovAddict> the vacuum cleaner things?

22:22 <efc> Yes

22:24 <efc> I finally got enough junk off my floor that it might be able to work

22:27 <efc> Maybe they've got a gas powered one

22:27 <PovAddict> why'd you want one

22:27 <efc> with a pull cord

22:28 <efc> more redneck

22:28 <PovAddict> lol

22:30 <KathrynM> gotta love the rednecks

22:31 <KathrynM> Only in Texas is a ginormous pickup truck considered a compact car

22:31 * KathrynM went to school in Austin and had a real compact car (97 Ford Escort)

22:32 <efc> Escorts are compact in both spatial and temporal dimensions.

22:33 <KathrynM> I love my Escort.

22:33 <KathrynM> Until I wrapped it around a guard rail on a freeway enterance ramp

22:33 <KathrynM> :(

22:36 <efc> I bet mom would like it (Roomba) but I haven't sold her on the idea yet

22:36 <efc> She's not much of a housekeeper

22:39 <Soul_keeper> they make military robots tho,  get one of those instead :)

22:39 <efc> I saw that.. 'tactical robots'

22:40 <Soul_keeper> mount a gun on it and it can hunt stray animals/pests

22:40 <efc> 'Our T1000 model is perfect for eliminating Sarah Conner'

22:40 <Soul_keeper> the same company makes them

22:41 <Soul_keeper> iRobot Corporation

22:42 <Soul_keeper> Cubic Corporation    makes the unmanned arial drones

22:42 <efc> Aug 5, 1997. The Roomba becomes self-aware. It begins to conveniently vaccum dust and pet hair at a geometric rate.

22:42 <Soul_keeper> lol

22:42 <Soul_keeper> well it obviousely survived y2k  .... i'd be scared

22:44 <efc> You can't be sure

22:45 <efc> Aug 5, 1907. The Roomba cleans the same room every day for the last 7 years.

22:46 <PovAddict> y2k wasn't just about the year number

22:46 <PovAddict> apparently there is also some modified leap year rule

22:47 <efc> Feb 29, 1997. The Roomba seems very confused.

22:47 <PovAddict> (I think some computers thought Feb had 28 days in year 2000)

22:49 <PovAddict> is anyone worrying about year 2038?

22:49 <Soul_keeper> nope

22:49 <efc> January 1, 1970. Roomba has nothing to fear about the year 2038!

22:50 <PovAddict> efc: why should it worry if it's 68 years away from it? :)

22:53 <efc> good year
