00:16 <Soul_keeper> hey people !

00:16 <Soul_keeper> how big is a 1lb block of silver ?

00:17 <Soul_keeper> bigger than a pack of cigs or smaller ?

00:17 <quail> don't know sorry

00:28 *** d00m1001 has joined #boinc

00:33 <zombie67> google conversion should be able to figure it out

00:38 <Soul_keeper> well that'll take some time to find ...

00:51 <Soul_keeper> ok i want a 1000 ounce block

00:52 * Soul_keeper wonders if that is troy ounces or regular ounces ...

00:52 <Soul_keeper> i could wear it around my neck like 50 cent

00:54 * quail is doing homemade pizzas for suppa tonight

00:54 *** Wabbit67 has quit IRC

00:55 <Soul_keeper> i had thai food

00:58 <Soul_keeper> so if i bought 1000 ounces of silver every year, i could likely retire some day ...

00:59 *** Wabbit98 has quit IRC

01:01 <Soul_keeper> that would be 1300 bucks right now, to put that in comparison just 10 ounces of gold would be like 8000 bucks

01:02 <zombie67> SIlver is dirt cheap

01:03 <Soul_keeper> a 10 ounce bar of platinum would set you back 14000

01:04 <Soul_keeper> "Far rarer than gold, it is estimated that all of the platinum ever mined throughout history would fit into a cube less than 25 feet on each side."

01:05 <zombie67> yeah....it's not the availabilty that sets price.  It's demand.

01:05 <zombie67> see oil

01:06 <Soul_keeper> apparently platinum is used in the auto and glass cutting industries ...

01:08 <Soul_keeper> apparently enough power can be generated from 2-3% of the surface area of the US to power the world thru thermo means

01:08 <Didactylos> Well.... look at diamonds. Artificially control availability = control demand = control value.

01:09 <zombie67> TRVTH

01:10 <zombie67> although that formula doesn't with dog doo

01:11 <Didactylos> You need a good ad campaign, too.

01:11 <zombie67> There has to be demand for something, THEN the control , then the artifical value

01:11 <Didactylos> I can see it now: dog shit: brings up the roses something wonderful. Buy your premium dog shit today!

01:11 <wdsmia> asks Didactylos to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.

01:12 <Soul_keeper> ttyl zombie67

01:13 <zombie67> it is called fertilizer, and it COSTS

01:14 <zombie67> ;)

01:18 <zombie67> the spice must flow

01:32 <Soul_keeper> awesome the IRS took my money, the checks posted,   now they can afford a 1000 ounce silver bar

01:35 <Soul_keeper> so are these olympic gold metals really made of gold ?

01:35 <Soul_keeper> 99.999% ?   or are they just gold plated aluminum or something ...

01:51 <agrippe> hey does anyone know if its possible to host 1 project on several servers?

01:51 <Didactylos> Possible, yes. Easy? ....

01:53 <agrippe> well we wouldn't want to take *all* the fun out of it :D

01:53 <agrippe> any ideas how?

02:30 <agrippe> is anyone working on a distributed boinc server?

02:42 <Tank_Master> ?

02:46 <agrippe> does each project have 1 main server? or is there any way to host it on more than 1 in case one crashes?

21:32 <Soul_keeper> i just had some "grilled" chicken from KFC

21:32 <Soul_keeper> it has just as much greese as the fried stuff

21:32 <CoderForLife> I had some popcorn chicken from Krogers at dinner

21:32 <Soul_keeper> they prolly just grill some burn marks on it for the "effect"

21:33 <CoderForLife> nah, those are painted on

21:33 <Soul_keeper> i ate some potatoe salad with my fingers in a vons parking lot for dinner the other day, guess it's a step up

21:36 <Soul_keeper> would joining a bowling league solve depression ?

21:37 <CoderForLife> depends on your bowling skills

21:37 <CoderForLife> and your ability to handle the liquor - a bowling alley is a front for a bar

21:37 <Soul_keeper> well i don't drink

21:37 <Soul_keeper> my bowling skills are probably average or slightly above

21:38 <Soul_keeper> so if everyone else got drunk i might be the best :)

21:38 <Soul_keeper> i'm considering buying a new bowling ball and shoes

21:38 <CoderForLife> then your ability to handle other people's ability to handle liquor would come into play

21:39 <Soul_keeper> the ones i got now are like 10yrs old and stuff,  someone bought them at a yard sale for 5 bucks, used them a few times then gave them to me

21:39 <CoderForLife> maybe they're lucky shoes

21:39 <Soul_keeper> i wonder if i can be the only guy on an all girl's team ...

21:39 <Soul_keeper> the shoes are falling apart

21:39 <CoderForLife> or not

21:39 <Soul_keeper> they leave peices of rubber when i walk

21:40 <Soul_keeper> and the tongue fell out the other day

21:40 <Soul_keeper> the ball itself is messed up, because my fingers are really big so i had to drill the holes wider myself

21:41 <CoderForLife> your prospects don't look so promsing here at the start

21:41 <Soul_keeper> i can still throw a 130 tho

21:44 <CoderForLife> despite the obstacles - that's good

21:55 <efc> I don't seem to be able to play piano on one hand and type with the other..

21:56 <Soul_keeper> excellent

21:56 <PovAddict> I can't play piano and do *anything else* at the same time

21:57 <efc> I can watch TV and let either hand go, and I can use the mouse with the non-piano hand, but can't type

21:57 <efc> Must use the same part of the brain

21:59 <xcamel> laterz...

22:00 <efc> night xcamel

22:14 <PovAddict> can you sing while playing?

22:20 <quail> afternoon all

22:20 <quail> how are we all?

22:21 <efc> singing is considerably easier

22:21 <efc> It doesn't generally mess up my playing. Not that I sing well.

22:23 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

22:26 <PovAddict> I generally can't

22:26 <PovAddict> but well, that's just a matter of practising

22:27 <PovAddict> my brain would "optimize keyboard playing so it uses less CPU", leaving more brain-CPU power free to do other stuff :)

22:27 <PovAddict> currently it uses too much

22:27 <efc> I would have to have the keyboard part largely learned before I could do both

22:28 * PovAddict notes he can't read sheet music - well at least not at "real time", while playing

22:28 <efc> I am really quite horrific at piano

22:29 <efc> can eek out some pop stuff, though these are relatively difficult for pop arrangements

22:29 <PovAddict> I can decode it way too slowly

22:29 <PovAddict> I'm much better at... playing a song after listening it one or two times :)

22:29 <infinisoft> oh - sight reading

22:31 <efc> sometimes I'll do something amazing though, like if I have the keyboard set to transpose, I'll start playing, and realize that I'm transposing it back into C pitch

22:31 <efc> Something I pretty much can't do if trying

23:50 <Soul_keeper> there ya go

23:51 <MTughan> You could've had so much fun. :P

23:51 <Soul_keeper> i knew something was up, it was the same number that called twice already today, but they hung up right after i said hello

23:51 <Soul_keeper> so when i answered this time i said "HELLO!"  with authority, so the little weasle spoke up
