08:45 <axxum> :)

08:45 <axxum> i think i have a problem with my boinc

08:46 <axxum> i have to try many times to connect the boinc server to upload the units

08:46 <axxum> after 7 - 8 times i can upload them

08:46 <axxum> is this normally?

08:47 <KathrynM> what project?

08:47 <Romulus> I guess what project are we talking about, KathrynM

08:47 <KathrynM> oh rommie, shut up you stupid bot

08:47 <axxum> seti and einstein

08:49 <KathrynM> nothing like that?

08:49 <axxum> before now i used boinc on linux

08:49 <KathrynM> now Windows?

08:49 <axxum> now i am working on win

08:49 <KathrynM> what version of BOINC?

08:50 <axxum> 6.2.18

08:50 <KathrynM> I'm on Linux and have very little experience with the problems for v6 on Windows

08:50 <KathrynM> can you try updating to .19?

08:50 <axxum> for win?

08:50 <KathrynM> I don't even know where stdout.txt is kept these days

08:50 <KathrynM> yes, for win

08:51 <axxum> ok, i will try

08:51 <axxum> thanks a lot

08:51 <axxum> :)

08:51 <KathrynM> no problem

08:51 <KathrynM> it probably won't help because there haven't been changes to curl and the like lately

08:51 <KathrynM> you could also revert to 5.10.45 and see if that helps

08:51 <axxum> aha

08:52 <axxum> ok, i'll try

17:50 <Rookie_69> Hi, Jay.

17:51 <efc> i read a theory a while back that the earth's magnetic field is generated by uranium in the core and that it was just about fissioned out

17:51 <efc> kinda far out there..

17:53 <Rookie_69> Waiting to see what Kyle turns into before deciding whether to race sunday or not...

17:53 <Rookie_69> I thought it was blamed on all the iron in the core.

17:54 <efc> thats the accepted theory

17:56 <Rookie_69> I've never had the opportunity to test the magnetic properties of uranium before.

17:56 <efc> maybe it was the fission keeping the core hot enough to generate the fields, i dunno

19:53 <xcamel> oh..

19:55 <wdsmia> turned off PG and turned on MW so the race is on to 1M ;)

19:56 <PovAddict> I'm doing Spinhenge on all machine atm

19:58 *** BadBarbarian_ has joined #boinc

19:58 <wdsmia> thats nice PovAddict

19:58 <PovAddict> installed BOINC on three computers at w$%&

19:59 <wdsmia> wish I could do that would 10x my credit

19:59 <PovAddict> it's not like they care about the software running on them...

19:59 <PovAddict> I don't think any has a legal copy of Windows btw

19:59 <Soul_keeper> be carefull

20:00 <Soul_keeper> corporations are known to sue employees for that

20:00 <Soul_keeper> ahhh

20:00 <wdsmia> or just fire them

20:00 <PovAddict> yeah right

20:00 <xcamel> or both

20:00 <wdsmia> yep

20:01 <PovAddict> last week me and another guy were trying to get around yet another activation problem on the pirated Windows 2003 on the server...

20:01 <PovAddict> you really think they'd care about BOINC? :P

20:02 <Soul_keeper> not if you got dirt on them :)

20:03 <PovAddict> I mean, they don't care about installing WGA cracks on the *server* (which hosts Active Directory, DHCP, DNS, mailserver, and probably something else), why'd they care about me installing BOINC on my machine and on two others that nobody's currently using

20:04 <PovAddict> if I were them I'd worry more about the crack program screwing up the server than about BOINC screwing up an otherwise-unused desktop machine

20:05 <wdsmia> you can tell them that when you own the company till them you work on there wim

20:35 <wdsmia> @eddie I used to run like that... but that was almost 30 years ago and had a big nasty army DI chasing me

20:36 <efc> I'd prefer a 20 year old blond college track team instructor, but to each his own..

20:36 <wdsmia> lol

20:37 * wdsmia has socks older then 20 years

20:38 <efc> dad claims he was running 6 min miles in the army but I don't believe it..

20:39 <efc> On the magnetic field topic: Here's the 'non-mainstream' theory I was talking about.

20:39 <wdsmia> not in full pack

20:41 <efc> I could probably run a 6 if not making it meant a tour in 'Nam

20:42 <efc> but under more reasonable circumstances I run a 7

20:42 <efc> but with aforementioned blond 20 year old pacing me, could probably do a few notches better than that

20:45 <wdsmia> lol

20:48 <efc> hard to figure out what pace will just barely not kill me

20:48 <wdsmia> that would be a 1 hr mile for me lol

20:49 <wdsmia> of cource that towing the cart with the keg

20:52 <wdsmia> when running you need them carbs

21:27 <PovAddict> compared to presidential candidates over here

21:27 <Soul_keeper> ic, you're that guy in argentina then ?

21:27 <PovAddict> yeh

21:28 <bigt0242000> well it would be better if ALL the candidates were there

21:28 <Soul_keeper> it's too late for that

21:29 <Soul_keeper> they didn't want ron paul :(

21:29 <bigt0242000> to late for what?

21:29 <Soul_keeper> already had the primaries

21:29 <Soul_keeper> you mean 3rd party candidates ?

21:29 <bigt0242000> yes

21:31 <bigt0242000> esp. nader from the independent and barr from the libertarian party

21:32 <Soul_keeper> ron paul used to be with the libertarian party, he jumped ship tho to try to get elected

21:32 <bigt0242000> yep now he is supporting barr

21:33 <Soul_keeper> he wanted to take back the republican party and return them to their conservative roots i suppose

21:35 <bigt0242000> i don't care for either candidates on tv right now

21:35 <Soul_keeper> i'm voting mccain,  obama is way too left, and has a lot of dirt on him

21:36 <bigt0242000> all they're doing is blowing smoke

21:37 <bigt0242000> Missed Votes 24% (306) Sen. Barack Obama [D-IL] since Jan 6, 2005. Ouch!

21:38 <bigt0242000> Missed Votes 18% (738) Sen. John McCain [R-AZ] since Feb 4, 1993. Not to bad.

21:39 <Soul_keeper> obama just shows up and votes "present"

21:39 <Soul_keeper> he's done that a few hundred times, can't decide between yes or no

21:39 <bigt0242000> present and no vote shouldn't even be an option

21:40 <quail> morning all

21:40 <bigt0242000> good evening

21:41 <PovAddict> xcamel: I *just* got a message saying my test email to you couldn't be delivered yet, and that it will try for two more days

21:41 <bigt0242000> XD

21:41 <bigt0242000> never got one back that said it would try for 2 more days

21:42 <PovAddict> if it's a temporary failure, you get one of those after 24 hours

21:42 <PovAddict> then after the 2 days pass, you get another saying basically "message still didn't get through, giving up"

21:42 <bigt0242000> the ones I get back says the postmaster couldn't deliver

21:43 <PovAddict> that's a permanent failure, server gives up immediately

21:58 <PovAddict> depends who those people are

21:59 <bigt0242000> congressmen and women

21:59 <bigt0242000> maybe it'll get the "do nothing" congress off the butts and do something useful

22:45 <Soul_keeper> palen will make everything alright :)

22:45 <Soul_keeper> palin*

22:45 <bigt0242000> what's not to like about a good looking hockey mom?

22:46 <Soul_keeper> i think she's the best option out of all 4 of these clowns

22:46 <bigt0242000> lol

22:46 <wdsmia> damn Soul_keeper I have new respect for you

22:47 <Soul_keeper> but i trust mccain a lot more than obama, he's "the comfortable old shoe"

22:47 <wdsmia> Palin 2012

22:47 <bigt0242000> mccain will get elected, kick the bucket, then palin takes office

22:47 <Soul_keeper> :)

22:47 <MTughan> I think I'd rather have Bush than Palin...

22:48 <MTughan> And I'm not even American!

22:48 <bigt0242000> i guess they trying to make the US government look better

22:48 <PovAddict> seen on a forum sig: "Canadians are unarmed Americans with free health care"

22:49 <Soul_keeper> lol

22:49 <MTughan> And a hell of a lot more compassion and understanding.

22:49 <Soul_keeper> they are our liberal buddies from the north

22:49 <Soul_keeper> :)

22:49 <bigt0242000> lol

22:49 <MTughan> US just tried to force their politics on everyone. We accept them as they come.

22:49 <MTughan> tries*

22:49 <MTughan> Need present, not past tense...

22:50 <PovAddict> MTughan: one could say "unarmed" is related to "more compassion and understanding" ;)

22:50 <MTughan> And I don't care if everyone here starts hating my ass. :P

22:50 <bigt0242000> well we american try to accept them too

22:50 <MTughan> bigt0242000: But don't you make them American rather than letting them separate into sections?

22:50 <MTughan> At least that's what I've heard, with the "melting pot".

22:51 <bigt0242000> we need term limits on congress

22:51 * PovAddict curses the word "American"

22:51 <bigt0242000> MTughan: well we're kinda split into 3 sections now

22:52 <MTughan> Heh... Any coincidence that I'm listening to "Revolution" by P.O.D.?

22:52 <bigt0242000> PovAddict: lol

22:52 <PovAddict> America is a damned CONTINENT

22:52 <MTughan> Two, actually.

22:52 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

22:52 <PovAddict> whatever; point is it's not the US alone

22:53 <MTughan> No, North and South America? Notice the AMERICA in there?

22:53 <bigt0242000> MTughan: Far Left, Far Right, and everybody else

22:53 <bigt0242000> MTughan: you forgot central america

22:53 <PovAddict> well okay, let's count them separated

22:53 <MTughan> Isn't McCain more left/right than the rest of his party? (I can't keep left and right straight anymore...)

22:53 <MTughan> bigt0242000: Technically, that's North America.

22:53 <PovAddict> you're in North America too

22:53 <bigt0242000> i know im in north america

22:54 <bigt0242000> i live in the SE US

22:54 * wdsmia thinks MTughan would vote for doug and bob mckenzie

22:54 <MTughan> I can technically say that Pov is north of me... :P

22:54 <Soul_keeper> MTughan any coincidence that POD came from my city ...   and so did blink 182 that crashed recently ?

22:54 <MTughan> wdsmia: Yeah, eh? Gotta love those two... :D

22:54 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: LA? I don't remember where POD came from now...

22:54 <Soul_keeper> san diego

22:55 <MTughan> Yeah, Wiki verifies.

22:55 <Soul_keeper> heh

22:55 * PovAddict notes the US demonym in Spanish literally translated back to English would be something like "unitedstatian"

22:57 <MTughan> lol, I believe it.

22:58 <bigt0242000> my rep and 2 sens do a decent job

22:58 <MTughan> That's all you can really guarantee. When is your election?

22:59 <bigt0242000> Nov

22:59 <MTughan> Seems like our election will be called and over in less than half the time yours took... :P

23:02 <MTughan> Yep, called September 7th, we're going to the polls on October 14th.

23:02 <bigt0242000> polls are open for 12 hrs takes about a day for all the result to come in. then it's decided unless we have another florida type problem.

23:02 <PovAddict> and you get to vote MTughan?

23:02 <MTughan> Basically 6 and a half weeks.

23:02 <MTughan> PovAddict: Yes. First time.

23:02 <MTughan> bigt0242000: lol, that was Gore and Bush, 2000, right?

23:02 <bigt0242000> yep and again in 2004

23:03 <MTughan> Although Kerry there.

23:03 <bigt0242000> hanging chads i think they called them

23:03 <MTughan> I don't remember hearing about problems in Florida that election...

23:03 <PovAddict> I remember a reporter of a local news program

23:04 <PovAddict> running inside the White House saying "here we are... before the poll for the President... of the World"

23:04 <MTughan> lol...

23:04 <bigt0242000> paper ballots caused issues in 2000, electronic voting machines caused issues in 2004, and i'm guessing both will cause issues this go round

23:05 <wdsmia> count on it

23:06 <wdsmia> been a long week NN all

23:07 <bigt0242000> all the courts had to do was force the voting machine companies to release there souce code. then we would more than likely have a smoother election

23:08 <PovAddict> could be completely legitimate software, but with the database tinkered with after the voting... hard to track that down

23:09 <bigt0242000> well its hard for the entries in the software to make it to the db if the software enters null entries or crashes

23:09 <MTughan> Oh yeah... Did you know that we have a Marijuana party here? Only thing they want to do: legalize marijuana. xD

23:09 <bigt0242000> we have a green party and i have no idea what they want to do

23:15 <Soul_keeper> tree huggers

23:15 <Soul_keeper> their main goal is extermination of the 2 party system, beyond that i doubt they even know what they want

23:16 <bigt0242000> lol

23:17 <PovAddict> in some IRC channel about a programming language (dont remember which), they mentioned some framework, I asked what it was about, and they told me "I think they're still debating that"

23:17 <Soul_keeper> figures

23:17 <bigt0242000> XD

23:29 <bigt0242000> can holloywood make anything more boring? come on a movie about a guy who invented the intermitin windshield wiper

23:30 <Soul_keeper> hmmm that former nsync guy is singing country now ...

23:30 <bigt0242000> so is jessica simpson

23:36 <bigt0242000> hollywood is desprate. they made a movie about bush.

23:36 <Soul_keeper> yeah
