11:37 <Didactylos> Microsoft don't make it easy to enter their betas.

11:37 <Didactylos> Google, on the other hand, release betas as their final version.

11:37 <Didactylos> To this very day, Gmail says "beta".

13:22 <Romulus> prolix: "vista" could be take it out and burn it - install linux right away

13:22 <prolix> heh

13:23 <prolix> i'm having an issue with the screen saver failing.  i'm running one project on vista.

13:28 *** saenger has joined #boinc

13:30 <prolix> i wonder

13:30 <prolix> fail

13:35 *** saenger has quit IRC

13:36 *** saenger has joined #boinc

13:39 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

13:40 <PovAdct_w> prolix: what BOINC version are you using?

13:41 *** siofwolves has joined #boinc

13:43 *** DerMeister has quit IRC

13:45 <prolix> PovAdct_w: BOINC clinet version 6.2.16 for windows_intelx86

13:45 <prolix> woops

13:45 <prolix> that's 6.2.18

13:46 <PovAdct_w> that's the latest; good

13:46 <PovAdct_w> I don't have any Vista computer, so can't help...

13:46 <PovAdct_w> ask in

13:46 <Romulus> Title: BOINC Message boardsBOINC Message boards (at

13:47 <prolix> PovAdct_w: right on.  thanks for the help

13:48 *** yoyo[RKN] has joined #boinc

13:53 <prolix> alright.  i found the answer.

13:53 <prolix> if i get kicked for the paste, thank you: BOINC version 6.x implements the screensaver differently than BOINC 5.x. The BOINC screensaver is produced by the BOINC project and, as far as I know, it has been updated to 6.x requirements. However, the projects you attach to also send screensavers. Some projects have not updated their screensaver to the 6.x standard.

13:54 <PovAdct_w> what project(s)?

13:54 <prolix> rosetta

13:56 <prolix> although it worked fine for the first 5 or so packages.  i did enjoy watching it, but i don't really need the screen saver

13:56 <PovAdct_w> strange

13:58 <prolix> strange indeed, but the computation is getting done, so that's the important part for me

13:59 <PovAdct_w> Rosetta seems to use the "new way" of doing screensaver graphics so it must be a different problem

14:04 <prolix> i hope they get it fixed for the visually dependent, because i think that the project is amazing in breadth and scope

14:05 <PovAdct_w> I mean it might be a problem on your side :)

14:05 <PovAdct_w> does the "Show graphics" button work?

14:06 <prolix> no, that doesn't work anymore either

14:06 <prolix> it worked during the first package, then after that, it went gray/grey

14:07 <PovAdct_w> desti: Cosmology back up

16:57 <xcamel> well... they cleaned him up a bit...

16:58 <xcamel> I found the most amazing 'specialty truck' for semi truck pulls...

16:58 <xcamel> (out pops the redneck)

17:01 <CoderForLife> he left his hockey stick at home

17:01 <CoderForLife> the most famous father-to-be in the world atm

17:03 <xcamel> Oshkosh M911 - out of west virginia

17:04 <xcamel> 22.5 ton semi - unloaded.

17:04 <CoderForLife> heh

17:05 <xcamel> 430 HP Detroit diesel, Allison 5 speed clutched automatic, Airshift split rears, AWD

17:05 <CoderForLife> mpg?  =)

17:05 <xcamel> made for picking up broken TANKS!

17:06 <CoderForLife> what a monster

17:09 <xcamel> indeed

17:09 <xcamel> :-)

17:09 <CoderForLife> lol

17:09 <CoderForLife> appropriately black

17:09 <xcamel> milspec version know to have extracted 200 tons

17:10 <xcamel> it's name would be 'Force Recon'

17:10 <xcamel> with a blackwater logo

17:11 <xcamel> That Detroit could easily be ramped up to 700-800 HP

17:14 <PovAddict> moo

17:14 <CoderForLife> _o/

17:18 <Didactylos> Google have changed their Chrome EULA - hours after people started complaining.

17:19 <PovAddict> apparently it was an oversight

17:19 *** saenger has quit IRC

17:21 <PovAddict> they use a similar EULA for most of their products

17:21 <Didactylos> Hard to see how they can "overlook" a clause in a major legal document for a major product from a multi-billion dollar corporation.

17:21 <PovAddict> and well, that one term doesn't fit for a desktop program

17:21 <PovAddict> indeed

17:21 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

17:22 <CoderForLife> is there a link to the EULA?

17:22 <Didactylos> Impressive response time, though.

17:22 <Didactylos> IBM would have taken 6-18 MONTHS to fix something like that.

17:22 <PovAddict> lol

17:23 <PovAddict> great JS speed too

17:23 <PovAddict> <- Firefox 3 takes 17 seconds on that same image (which is already a big JS speed improvement over Firefox 2)

17:23 <Romulus> Title: wr-chrome.PNG (at

17:23 <PovAddict> (yes that's a raytracer in Javascript)

17:27 <zombie67> safari took 4.778 seconds

17:27 <zombie67> how fast was chrome?

17:27 <PovAddict> how do you know, you don't have that page :)

17:27 <PovAddict> file:// URL

17:28 <CoderForLife> Firefox 3.0.1 = 4.778 seconds

17:28 <CoderForLife> same??

17:29 <CoderForLife> that's just a pic

17:29 <CoderForLife> a png

17:29 <zombie67> oh

17:29 <CoderForLife> not the test

17:29 <zombie67> so where is the test?

17:30 <CoderForLife> ??

17:30 <PovAddict> I dunno if I have it

17:30 <PovAddict> will see if I have it on this machine

17:31 <zombie67> just curious.  not important

17:31 <CoderForLife> ditto

17:32 <xcamel> same time here..

17:33 <PovAddict> ...

17:33 <PovAddict> it's a screenshot

17:33 <CoderForLife> "doh!"

17:33 <xcamel> that's why I was wondering what the issue was...

17:36 <xcamel> like more obamallamadingdong..

17:36 * CoderForLife reads Fred's speech

17:37 <PovAddict> <- the real script

17:37 <Romulus> <> (at

17:37 <xcamel> that was great... if he had been able to give a speech like that a year ago....

17:37 <xcamel> we wouldn't be discussing McCain

17:38 <CoderForLife> he'll do it all different next time - already started

17:40 <xcamel> all the smears are really getting on my nerves... (what few I have left)

17:40 <CoderForLife> I'm already gine

17:40 <CoderForLife> er gone

17:40 <CoderForLife> gone for the gin

17:40 <xcamel> today was kind of 'one of those days'

17:41 <CoderForLife> she has a tremendous opportunity to brush it all away

17:41 <CoderForLife> "like gnats on the warhorse"

17:41 <CoderForLife> to quote Fred

17:41 <xcamel> here's hoping, I know I'll be glued to those tiny little plasma ampules...

17:42 <xcamel> hmmm... more sparks

17:42 <CoderForLife> we got an unexpected one last night

17:43 <CoderForLife> I had to go out and connect the temp gutter piping

17:43 <CoderForLife> the guys hooked it up before they left today

17:44 <PovAddict> CFL: any more wall work today?

17:45 <xcamel> good idea..

17:45 <xcamel> looks like we might have 'hannah' for the weekend...

17:47 <xcamel> And Oz weighs in...

17:47 <xcamel>,25197,24289419-7583,00.html

17:47 <Romulus> <> (at

17:47 <xcamel> might really be intelligent life down there after all...

17:57 <xcamel> the comment about Loud Dowd is a classic...

17:59 <CoderForLife> just had a visit by the HOA

18:00 <CoderForLife> wall activities over for today

18:00 <xcamel> and?

18:00 <Romulus> hmm... and is with no internet for like a month, xcamel

18:01 <CoderForLife> I got the salute and Project of the Year Award

18:01 <xcamel> that sounds kind of ominous...

18:01 <CoderForLife> that and a buck-fifty

18:01 <xcamel> as in 'better your wallet than mine...'

18:02 <CoderForLife> I'd like more like 50 thousand

18:02 * xcamel chokes

18:02 <CoderForLife> of HOA money

18:02 <xcamel> the M911 is 77,500 rebuilt, stripped, painted, and shipped.

18:03 <PovAddict> those numbers are making me dizzy

18:03 <xcamel> maybe "WoodZilla" ?

18:03 <CoderForLife> but you wouldn't set your lawn chair on top of the M911

18:03 <xcamel> Oh yes I would...

18:03 <CoderForLife> so there =)

18:03 <CoderForLife> lol

18:04 <PovAddict> &currency convert 600 ARS USD

18:04 <Romulus> PovAddict: 600.00 ars = 197.34 usd

18:04 <xcamel> and a flag, and a frosty beverage...

18:04 <CoderForLife> heh

18:04 <CoderForLife> I was thinking of naming the wall "Wit's End"

18:04 <xcamel> and 2 50mm howitzers...

18:04 <xcamel> locked and loaded

18:05 * xcamel laughs to self

18:05 <xcamel> the GVW of that truck exceeds the MGVW of 80% of the roads around here

18:06 <CoderForLife> lol

18:06 <CoderForLife> and bridge height?

18:06 <PovAddict> &acronym GVW

18:06 <Romulus> I have no idea.

18:06 <xcamel> and it goes 50MPH in a stiff tailwind..

18:06 <CoderForLife> gross vehicle weight

18:06 <xcamel> downhill even

18:06 <CoderForLife> maximum GVW

18:07 <CoderForLife> downhill is when it gets 2 MPG

18:07 <xcamel> unloaded...

18:07 <CoderForLife> heh

18:07 <CoderForLife> needs a tandem tanker truck

18:08 <xcamel> it would be a trailer queen - We have a really nice lowboy that will haul it

18:09 <xcamel> and an international 8600 series Eagle II road truck

18:10 <CoderForLife> only got a black screen on the JS raytrace PovAddict

18:10 <PovAddict> ah not sure if it'd work on IE

18:11 <CoderForLife> IE?  I only run Firefox at home, except if a website maliciously requires IE

18:11 <CoderForLife> Firefox 3.0.1 under XP

18:11 <PovAddict> weird

18:12 <CoderForLife> 3 instances of Firefox running, each with 3 or more tabs

18:12 <CoderForLife> boinc running

18:12 <CoderForLife> 3 instances of Acrobat

18:12 <CoderForLife> Visual Studio 2008

18:12 <CoderForLife> Visio

18:13 <CoderForLife> etc

18:13 <PovAddict> black screen? you sure JS is enabled? :P

18:13 <PovAddict> (NoScript plugin?)

18:13 <CoderForLife> the system is running a lot

18:13 <CoderForLife> ROFLMAO

18:13 <CoderForLife> You must think I'm some sort of n00b

18:14 <PovAddict> well, just making sure :)

18:14 <CoderForLife> lol

18:14 <PovAddict> "from the 'is it plugged in, is it turned on' department"

18:14 <CoderForLife> It just be this "Updates are ready for your computer" prompt I keep getting

18:14 <CoderForLife> just=must

18:24 <CoderForLife> wow - great speech by Fred

18:32 *** nickuwo has joined #boinc

18:36 <zombie67> black screen on safari too

18:41 <PovAddict> should work now, I forgot to remove some code that would only work if you had Firebug plugin in Firefox

18:47 <CoderForLife> black browser of death =)

18:47 <zombie67> still black screen

18:48 <CoderForLife> I have Tamper Data, Update Scanner and WeatherBug add-ons

18:48 <CoderForLife> no Firebug

18:49 <PovAddict> I removed the Firebug code, it should work without it...

18:50 <zombie67> Safari:  Render took 19.959 seconds

18:50 <CoderForLife> Firefox: Render took NaN seconds =)

18:51 <zombie67> FF for OSX 3.0.1:  15.91 seconds

19:06 <xcamel> firebug works nicely...

19:12 <xcamel> so much for 'globull worming'

19:16 <zombie67> climate change is continuous, and has been since the planet was formed.

19:17 <zombie67> and that big old ball of fire in the sky has an AWFUL LOT to do with it.

19:17 <zombie67> maybe Sol can buy come carbon credits.

19:17 <zombie67> ;)

19:18 <xcamel> oh my goodness...

19:18 <PovAddict> don't get in yet another political flamewar in here

20:12 <efc> sorry, been running

20:12 <efc> pretty good, went to the mountains for the weekend

20:12 <efc> feet hurt too bad to run up there but did get some hiking in

20:14 <CoderForLife> back

20:16 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

20:26 <xcamel> generally a good time?

20:27 <xcamel> wb Don

20:28 <efc> Yeah love it up there.

20:29 <CoderForLife> thx Jay

20:29 <CoderForLife> was just trying to recover the weak spot in the yard where the bobcats tore up the protection

20:29 <CoderForLife> a losing cause, to be sure

20:30 <CoderForLife> but you only lose when you give up

20:30 <xcamel> The wife had to stop in the road for a crossing bobcat tonight

20:31 <CoderForLife> yeow

20:31 <CoderForLife> er maybe meow

20:31 <CoderForLife> mine are the mechanical kind

20:31 <xcamel> they make a noise like a liberal being presented with the truth

20:32 <CoderForLife> that loud?

20:32 <xcamel> and when mating, they sound like TWO liberals...

20:32 <xcamel> hehehe...

20:34 <CoderForLife> what's the effect of a spotless sun?

20:34 <CoderForLife> is it cooler?  less insolation?

20:35 <xcamel> google >> maunder minimum

20:35 <CoderForLife> k thx

20:35 <efc> it means you can continue buying Hummers for a few more years

20:36 <xcamel> seems a 'spotless sun' was the primary cause of 'the little ice age'

20:36 <CoderForLife> reading

20:37 <xcamel> more energy is transferred to the earth during normal spot cycles do to an increased high energy mass ejection

20:38 <xcamel> the mass carries more heat radiation than just the direct infrared

20:38 <CoderForLife> so sunspots deliver more insolation

20:38 <xcamel> basically, yes.

20:38 <CoderForLife> didn't know that

20:39 <xcamel> "we" didn't know that until the last 5 years or so.

20:39 <CoderForLife> hmm

20:39 <xcamel> hence Glo-Bull warming

20:40 <CoderForLife> my neighbor was ranting about the miniumum and saying "take that, Al Gore"

20:40 <CoderForLife> wasn't sure of the details myself

20:41 <xcamel> he's a smart guy - 99% of the population has no clue about this...

20:42 <CoderForLife> she

20:42 <CoderForLife> heh

20:42 <xcamel> works for me..

20:43 <xcamel> the truth will not have laced it's shoes by the time a good lie makes it clear around the world...

20:44 <CoderForLife> who said that?

20:45 <xcamel> AFAIK - Mark Twain

20:45 <CoderForLife> excellent

20:46 <xcamel> The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

20:46 <xcamel> H. L. Mencken

20:46 <xcamel> still my favorite

20:48 <CoderForLife> I hate hobgoblins

20:48 <Tank_Master> lol

20:48 <Tank_Master> whater there to hate?

20:48 <Tank_Master> whats*

20:50 <xcamel> like poltergeists

20:50 <Tank_Master> stakeholder - the most important person at the barbecue

20:50 <CoderForLife> I'm just bitter, clinging to guns and  religion and antipathy toward hobgoblins

20:51 <xcamel> wrong - it's the matchmaker...

20:51 <CoderForLife> time to go sit and watch the convention

20:51 <CoderForLife> gn all

20:51 <xcamel> almost that time eh?

20:57 <Tank_Master> true, the daughter is hot

22:16 *** ganjaman has joined #boinc

22:16 <Soul_keeper> see*

22:16 <ganjaman> how large is a fah packet?

22:16 <Soul_keeper> obama has a LOT of dirt on him

22:17 <Soul_keeper> ganjaman, lemme check

22:17 <ganjaman> xor bitshifting enabled

22:18 <Soul_keeper> appears to be multiple files

22:18 <ganjaman> its because i got only 1200baud

22:19 <ganjaman> and 3x 280gtx

22:19 <Soul_keeper> 1.5MB for the FAH application,  and looks like a few KB for the WU files themselves

22:20 <ganjaman> yeah the fah app i already got, have to put those computer into my garage, and i got only packet radio with 1200 baud to connect at home

22:21 <ganjaman> whatever, a few kb is ok

22:21 <ganjaman> takes aprox 15min for upgrade

22:22 <Soul_keeper> i have about 60 FAH wu's and a few dozen other wcg wu's   together they total 163MB

22:23 <Soul_keeper> hmmm   you are talking about wcg's FAH right ?

22:23 <Soul_keeper> human proteome folding

22:24 <ganjaman> yeah

22:24 <ganjaman> because of some graphic cards

22:25 <ganjaman> but the noise makes me insane, thats why i put the machine to the car- garage

22:26 <ganjaman> those 3 graphic cards make aprox 70db noise

22:26 <Soul_keeper> bet they pull 700watts too ...

22:26 <ganjaman> aprox 1.2kw

22:26 <Soul_keeper> wow

22:28 <ganjaman> 200w wasted from the psu

22:29 <ganjaman> so i do not need to warm up my car in the winter times

22:29 <ganjaman> before i used an 1.5kw electric oven, so this days are gone

22:29 <ganjaman> now the computer is the oven

22:31 <Soul_keeper> yeah i have 3 computers and a laptop running 24/7 in my room

22:31 <Soul_keeper> probably why it is over 90 degrees in here all the time, and the aircon has no effect

22:31 <ganjaman> in another room i have 5pcs and 2 laptops, that was to much

22:32 <ganjaman> it was like 50 °C in the summertime

22:33 <Soul_keeper> yeah i fell asleep and woke up in a pool of sweat

22:33 <ganjaman> next system i get is fully watercooled, whaetver for a few bucks more, it doesn't hurt

22:34 <Soul_keeper> yeah

22:34 <Soul_keeper> i'm thinking a watercooled rig with the radiator in the window

22:34 <Soul_keeper> just blow the heat out the house

22:34 <ganjaman> i get an cooler from a truck and drill holes into the foundation, and put the cooler outside

22:35 <ganjaman> 20psi water cooling or something

22:36 <ganjaman> maybe i have to use gasoline tubes, to handle the pressure

22:37 <Soul_keeper> palin's daughters are way hotter than chelsea clinton

22:37 <ganjaman> maybe the cavity might be an issue

22:37 <ganjaman> yeah her dad was the postman

22:38 <Soul_keeper> lol

22:40 <ganjaman> pregnant at 17 lol

22:41 <ganjaman> but i spent her some batteries

22:41 <Soul_keeper> it happens

22:42 <ganjaman> its a question of knowledge

22:42 <Soul_keeper> the daughter isn't running for VP

22:43 <ganjaman> yeah its polemic i know

22:43 <Soul_keeper> excellent vocabulary choice

22:44 <efc> However if she does want to run, she has my vote

22:45 <ganjaman> polemic like the religions, but thats another question
