17:10 <CoderForLife> hey all
17:11 <PovAddict> hi
17:11 <CoderForLife> hey PovAddict
17:11 <CoderForLife> Is Chinese dirt gray? Is so, they've made it
17:12 <PovAddict> hard to tell
17:14 <PovAddict> search for worms in the hole
17:14 <PovAddict> you probably can tell if they're chinese worms from the eye shape
17:15 <xcamel> another kill >> mail.indd.tim.ro
17:15 <xcamel> chinese dirt, eh?
17:15 <CoderForLife> jes checkin
17:16 <CoderForLife> they're digging it up
17:16 <xcamel> been there, done that...
17:16 <CoderForLife> maybe it's the foundation of the Great Wall of China
17:17 *** saenger has quit IRC
17:18 <xcamel> they caused the earthquake in Vanatu...
17:19 <CoderForLife> the house shakes like it here
17:19 <CoderForLife> I was out on the deck, until it shook
17:19 <CoderForLife> sent me back inside in a hurry
17:23 <wdsmia> re-hi
17:24 <xcamel> dinner..
17:27 <Didactylos> PovAddict: the difference is, that site doesn't work. It doesn't have a clue about concepts like time zones.
17:29 <CoderForLife> just talked to the guys
17:29 <CoderForLife> one claims to hear Chinese when he's down in the hole
17:31 <Tank_Master> what are time zones?
17:32 <Tank_Master> are they fractures in the space=time continum?
17:32 *** d00m1001 has quit IRC
17:32 <CoderForLife> maybe it's Chinese snoring he's hearing
17:32 <Tank_Master> lol
17:32 <PovAddict> the world weirdness that causes Kathryn to go to work at the time you might be going to sleep
17:32 *** d00m1001 has joined #boinc
17:32 <PovAddict> that's what timezones are
17:32 <CoderForLife> the other one has hearing screams of agony
17:33 <CoderForLife> but he thinks that it was the bobcat climbing a grade steeper than it's design maximum
17:33 * Tank_Master wonders if LHC will have any work tomorrow
17:34 <CoderForLife> they're done for today
17:34 <Tank_Master> or if the world will end
17:34 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: probably; stay attached
17:34 <xcamel> those screams were CFL's wallet...
17:34 <Tank_Master> :P
17:34 <CoderForLife> chances are more the former than the latter
17:34 * Tank_Master check the "attach to all: in BAM! just to make sure
17:35 <Tank_Master> checks*
17:35 <CoderForLife> this is fixed price, so the screaming is now the foreman
17:35 <CoderForLife> he said he's been doing this 10 years, and has never hauled this much out
17:35 <Tank_Master> lol
17:36 <CoderForLife> they are paying for each truckload out of my fixed price
17:37 <CoderForLife> this was day 5
17:37 <Tank_Master> why wont LHC work with the 6.x clients?
17:37 <Tank_Master> ugg!
17:37 <quail> CoderForLife: hi
17:38 <CoderForLife> hi quail
17:38 <PovAddict> because their code and server are ancient
17:38 <Tank_Master> but I have to use 6.3.10 for PS3grid!
17:38 <Tank_Master> I think the credits for pe3 outway what Id get tom LCH
17:38 <Tank_Master> PS3*
17:39 <Tank_Master> so, when tomorrow will the world end?
17:39 <PovAddict> in 9 hours
17:39 <Tank_Master> but thats today!?!
17:40 <CoderForLife> when you wake up you'll be dead
17:40 <Tank_Master> sweet!
17:40 <Tank_Master> wait...
17:40 <Tank_Master> how can I wake up if I am dead?
17:40 <Tank_Master> n actually I wont have gone to bed yet
17:40 <CoderForLife> it is a profound mystery
17:40 <Tank_Master> 9h form now will be 11:45
17:40 <CoderForLife> or as Mark Twain said...
17:41 <CoderForLife> if he knew the world was going to end tomorrow...
17:41 <CoderForLife> he'd move to Cincinnati and live comfortably for 3 more years
17:41 <Tank_Master> lol
17:41 <CoderForLife> besides...
17:42 <CoderForLife> we are going to get this wall built
17:42 <xcamel> and the coldest winter he ever spent was summer in San Francisco.
17:43 <PovAddict> ok so it was 13 hours
17:45 <Tank_Master> 27h?
17:45 <Tank_Master> you said 9h!
17:45 <Tank_Master> 17*
17:45 <PovAddict> ok his stupid countdown is also timezone-impaired then
17:45 <Tank_Master> LOL
17:45 <Tank_Master> thats sad
17:47 <xcamel> .00000000000762 parsecs
17:48 <Tank_Master> so itll be at 8:30 whatever timezone CERN is in?
17:49 <xcamel> closer to 9 or 10 PM
17:50 <Tank_Master> the webcasts starts at 8:30
17:56 <CoderForLife> going outside to listen for some Chinese myself - bbiab

18:06 <Tank_Master> ahh

18:06 <Tank_Master> sorry to hear that
18:07 <KathrynM> thanks
18:07 <Tank_Master> thought maybe you wanted to be with friends and family when the world ends tomorrow :P
18:07 * PovAddict slaps Tank_Master
18:07 <Tank_Master> or today, depending on your timezone...
18:07 <Tank_Master> hehe
18:08 <PovAddict> 1/50000000th chance is a huge overestimate
18:08 <Tank_Master> yeah, well
18:08 <Tank_Master> fun to imagen
18:15 <Didactylos> PovAddict: seems you missed the joke.
18:16 <Didactylos> The LHC page can always say NO, because if the world ends, there won't be an Internet.
18:16 <PovAddict> which joke?
18:17 *** efc has joined #boinc
18:17 <Didactylos> It's like the webpage that says "Is the internet working?" YES
18:17 <PovAddict> what makes you think I missed the joke of that page?
18:18 <Didactylos> You were trying to work out when it should change.
18:18 * Tank_Master doesnt get it
18:18 <PovAddict> nope, I was complaining how sethy's countdown for when LHC fires up didn't work with timezones
18:19 <Didactylos> The "Is it christmas" one has no joke, and (since it doesn't work) no point.
18:19 <PovAddict> "when LHC starts", not "when world ends" or "when the page will change"
18:19 <PovAddict> and the "is it christmas" one does work
18:19 <CoderForLife> back
18:20 <Didactylos> Heh. If the Christmas one worked the same way as sethy's, then it would work.
18:20 * efc estimates we'll be able to head off the LHC catastrophe with a precisely placed and positioned set of nukes
18:20 <Didactylos> But last Christmas, it was using server time, and didn't work. Maybe they fixed it?
18:21 <xcamel> back from walk
18:21 <CoderForLife> wb
18:21 <CoderForLife> I am back from the center of the earth
18:21 <Didactylos> Methinks too many journalists have seen too many dumb sci-fi movies.
18:22 <CoderForLife> I am happy to report, no quasars there yet
18:22 <Didactylos> I cringe when I see bad science on TV.
18:23 <efc> Bleh, you scientist types just wait. Its going to be a huge apostrophe.
18:23 <Didactylos> Just yesterday, there was this amazing computer virus that was *encoded in a fingerprint*.
18:23 <PovAddict> cool
18:23 <PovAddict> o_Ãµ
18:23 <Didactylos> I had to crank up the suspension of disbelief quite a lot for that one.
18:24 <Didactylos> PovAddict: encoded in a fingerprint: easy. Encoded in such a way that the virus is transferred to the finger print scanner ans attached network....
18:25 <PovAddict> yeah right
18:25 *** quail_linux has joined #boinc
18:25 <efc> Heh, it is conceivable that the correct image could infect a scanner's firmware..
18:25 <PovAddict> grab virus source code
18:25 <PovAddict> print it
18:25 <PovAddict> scan it
18:25 <PovAddict> security bug in scanner driver causes remote execution
18:25 <PovAddict> yeah right
18:25 <efc> If your scanner driver ever crashes, there's a chance..
18:25 <Didactylos> That would be some bug.
18:25 <PovAddict> indeed
18:26 <efc> Sounds nuts but then some of the various exploits sound pretty crazy and work well in the wild
18:26 <PovAddict> reminds me of the guides I read for hacking the xbox360
18:27 <Didactylos> It's actually really really hard to encode digital data in such a way that it can be scanned and reformed into the original.
18:27 <PovAddict> Didactylos: is it? barcodes work and they don't seem *that* hard
18:27 <Didactylos> So doing it by accident seems rather a stretch.... even assuming that the firmware does contain malicious code to execute data.
18:28 <PovAddict> or I'm misunderstanding that sentence
18:28 <Didactylos> PovAddict: if you can fit a virus into a barcode.....
18:28 <Didactylos> I forget how many bits of data a barcode contains, but it's not much.
18:28 <PovAddict> I saw some product (a failure) to send sound by snail mail
18:29 <Didactylos> Why would it fail? Musical birthday cards work fine....
18:29 <PovAddict> you recorded your voice and it printed a strange pattern, then you sent it, the recipient scanned it with the handheld device and played it back
18:29 <Didactylos> Hah! Dumb on so many, many levels.
18:29 <PovAddict> I don't remember how big the pattern was
18:30 <PovAddict> and yes it does sound quite stupid :)
18:31 <Didactylos> I think the best data density is acheived by those square block barcodes that are used by shipping companies.
18:31 <efc> I seem to remember a JPG exploit not too long ago.. I think the 'payload' was in the metadata, though
18:31 <xcamel> iirc.. the squarecode contains 1K of data
18:32 <PovAddict> efc: yes, a corrupted metadata chunk; it also seems plausible that the decompression code for the actual image was vulnerable
18:33 <PovAddict> there are codes just like that (well, less resolution) in advertisements in the subway here
18:34 <PovAddict> apparently you can take a picture of the code and download a song (the code is just an identifier; of course the song itself is not in the pictured block)
