01:49 <zombie67> Mr. Brightside is freakin' awesome

01:50 <zombie67> video is C-, but the song is A+
01:51 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc
01:52 <Tank_Master> think I have heard the song beofre
01:52 <Tank_Master> on the alternitive station
01:53 <zombie67> that was from their first (of 3 or 4) album
01:53 <zombie67> so it's not new
01:53 <zombie67> and THAT is the problem
01:53 <Tank_Master> :P
01:53 <zombie67> I was kept out of the loop, damnit!
01:55 <zombie67> clearly not MY fault
01:55 <zombie67> ;)
01:55 <Tank_Master> lol
01:55 <zombie67> TM, we need to talk about my PD and X2 boxen
01:56 <Tank_Master> pk...
01:56 <Tank_Master> ok*
01:56 *** Eythan has joined #boinc
01:56 <zombie67> i'm in a similar place where i was before
01:56 <zombie67> I can't justify running them
01:56 <Tank_Master> right
01:56 <zombie67> BUT
01:57 <zombie67> I can't just give them away
01:57 <zombie67> they have 2gb
01:57 <Tank_Master> you can probably sell them on creg's list
01:57 <zombie67> and are top end processors for their gen
01:57 <zombie67> so this is why we need to talk
01:58 <zombie67> I am thinking of a deal where I give them to you, you sell them, we share the profit
01:58 <Tank_Master> I could do that
01:58 <zombie67> okay
01:59 <Tank_Master> shiping is about $30-40 per comp though
01:59 <zombie67> can you limit your sales range to "local"?
01:59 <Tank_Master> on creg's list, yes
02:00 <zombie67> okay, frankly, do whatever you think will yeild the best
02:00 <zombie67> yield
02:00 <Tank_Master> ill give it some though
02:01 <zombie67> anyway, I will be away until the end of November, then we can figure a way to transfer the goods
02:01 <Tank_Master> where ya goin?
02:01 <zombie67> that was sarcasm?
02:01 <Tank_Master> n what about your game?
02:01 <zombie67> huh?
02:01 <Tank_Master> you just said youll be away till nov
02:02 <zombie67> my ROAD TRIP!!!
02:02 <Tank_Master> oh, right
02:02 <Tank_Master> duh :P
02:02 <zombie67> heh
02:03 <zombie67> anyway, after that, maybe early Dec, we can meet half way or something
02:03 <zombie67> I like driving
02:03 <Tank_Master> ok
02:04 <zombie67> sweet. I hate the buying/selling part
02:04 <Tank_Master> yeah
02:06 <zombie67> what's this about dr dan buying a cray?
02:06 <Tank_Master> :)
02:06 <Tank_Master> bragging rights
02:07 <Tank_Master> its one of the new "affordable" cray servers thats a joint efferet between ms and cray
02:07 <Tank_Master> costs *only* 5k or so
02:07 <zombie67> but he said he was selling off his stuff...but no liks??
02:07 <Tank_Master> or something like that
02:07 <Tank_Master> yeah
02:07 <zombie67> $5k is not that much
02:08 <zombie67> figure a 4x 7xxx intel box
02:08 <Tank_Master> dont think he;s quite ready to sell yet, but I dunno
02:09 <zombie67> seriously though, the way to do it is to wait for the return of the HT intle chips
02:10 <Tank_Master> yeah
02:10 <Tank_Master> I am
02:10 <zombie67> any SERIOUS investment before that is a waste
02:11 <zombie67> oh, I am about to announce a harpertown product...

02:21 <Romulus> Title: Xeon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)
02:22 *** infinisoft has quit IRC
02:26 <zombie67> Sun bought Cray, then sold off the ugly portion to SGI
02:27 <Tank_Master> ahh
02:27 <Tank_Master> :P
02:27 <zombie67> or the reverse
02:27 <Tank_Master> so cray is no more?
02:27 <Tank_Master> bummer
02:28 *** _Danilo_ has quit IRC
02:28 <zombie67> Cray Research merged with Silicon Graphics (SGI) in February 1996. At the time the industry was highly critical of the move, noting that there was little overlap between the two companies in terms of market or technology. Founder Seymour Cray was killed in a traffic accident later that year.
02:28 <zombie67> SGI immediately sold off the Superservers business to Sun, who quickly turned the UltraSPARC-based Starfire project then under development into the extremely successful Enterprise 10000 range of servers.
02:29 <zombie67> ;)
02:29 <zombie67> brb
02:29 <Tank_Master> huh, I got almost 30k points yesterday, and I didnt more in the overall position
02:31 <DerMeister> 30k... It would take me almost a year to get this much credits -.-

02:32 <zombie67> back
02:32 <zombie67> yeah, I quit focusing on Ramsey after 1M
02:32 <zombie67> but I have since made 200k
02:33 <zombie67> nick has done everything right
02:33 <zombie67> including opening the source
02:33 <zombie67> the problem is DA
02:33 <Tank_Master> yeah, and astive on the boards and here to
02:33 <Tank_Master> DA?
02:33 <Romulus> Somebody said DA is a pain, Tank_Master
02:34 <zombie67> the whole credit equality is F'ing up the whole point of BOINC
02:34 <zombie67> David Anderson
02:34 <Tank_Master> ahh, yeah
02:34 <zombie67> and his holy crusade
02:34 <Tank_Master> "My way is the right way"
02:35 <zombie67> the TRVTH is that cross-project credit equality is impossible
02:35 <Tank_Master> yeah
02:35 <Tank_Master> with some being more effecent than other, some haveing different (and better preformaning) apps then others...
02:36 <zombie67> and the credit "communists" are actually ruining BOINC
02:36 <Tank_Master> and different comps performing differently
02:36 *** infinisoft has quit IRC
02:36 <zombie67> 1) they are running off new projects like Ramsey
02:36 <zombie67> just too much hassle
02:37 <zombie67> 2) they are DISCOURAGING optomizing
02:38 <zombie67> that just HURTS the science

20:37 <Romulus> Title: YouTube - Obama Mocks Joe the Plumber, Crowd Laughs (at www.youtube.com)
20:37 <PovAddict> who is this joe the plumber I keep hearing about?
20:38 <xcamel> the guy who exposed obomber as a pure socialist.
20:42 *** hawmps has quit IRC
20:55 <PovAddict> video memory corrupted again, restarting compiz again
21:01 <xcamel> stop showing it porn...
21:02 <efc> Have we been informed by the media who won?
21:04 <PovAddict> when I go to Expo mode (showing all four desktops at once), the desktop backgrounds show corrupted
21:04 <PovAddict> like random stuff from memory
21:05 <efc> Its been a while since I saw that.
21:06 <PovAddict> the problem is with the the half-size background images shown there (I *think* the backgrounds are in mipmap textures, and the low LOD versions get corrupted for some strange reason)
21:06 <PovAddict> seems to start happening after a user switch
21:22 <efc> I never watch hell's kitchen but he's really tearing this plae apart for sanitation..
21:22 <MTughan> efc: Hell's Kitchen or Kitchen Nightmares?
21:22 *** bigt0242000 has left #boinc
21:23 <efc> Its pretty horrible.. wonder how the ones I eat at are
21:27 <efc> they have pretty good health inspectors in this county though.
21:47 * xcamel yawns
21:52 <PovAddict> wtf
21:52 <PovAddict> people already making stupid pictures about the plumber?
21:52 <PovAddict> some people have too much time to waste
21:52 <PovAddict> (and a probably-illegal copy of Photoshop)
21:53 * efc agrees and runs around making chicken noises
21:53 <xcamel> those in AR could not possibly understand...
21:54 <xcamel> off with me anyway...
21:54 <efc> night xcamel
21:55 <PovAddict> instead of saying why people should vote some candidate, it seems to be all about making fun of the other candidate
21:56 <xcamel> that's how it works here - talk all they want - if their lips are moving - they're lying.
21:56 <MTughan> Hey, I did see an Obama ad today that didn't mention or poke at McBain at all today.
21:57 <MTughan> McCain*
21:57 <MTughan> Messed it up with another person I know...
21:57 <efc> The name is so unfortunate.. the most awkward since Stalin von Hitler ran a few years back
21:58 <MTughan> Palin, Obama, or McCain?
21:58 <PovAddict> MTughan: I was actually referring not to the official campaigns, but to, say, images people share on IRC
21:59 <efc> Pov: You probably don't get the political email like we do..
22:00 <efc> Every rumor and lie gets sent out as fact, to be believed by people who already didn't like candidate X
22:01 <PovAddict> so it doesn't help move votes in either direction
22:01 <efc> I doubt it. Might move some fence-sitters.
22:12 *** nickuwo has joined #boinc
22:12 <PovAddict> oh, I forgot to check if my cron script was working correctly
22:12 <PovAddict> looks like it is; I have 5 dumps of E@H stats
22:14 <PovAddict> and I'm already wasting 68MB on them \o/

22:27 <PovAddict> I'm thinking I should parse the XMLs into a binary format (like a database)... they'll use too much space even compressed if I keep archiving
22:32 <efc> there are some special XML archiving utilities
22:32 <efc> huffman coding works well on it
22:33 <PovAddict> I wouldn't bother with those... I'd do my own code specifically for this XML format
22:33 <PovAddict> <create_time>1097843757</create_time> can be stored in four bytes (the integer in binary)
22:34 <PovAddict> <country>United States</country> can be stored in one or two bytes (offset in a lookup table of countries)
22:35 <PovAddict> not to mention I'd save *lots* if I do delta encoding of the whole file with the one from 12 hours before
22:37 <jasong2> I bet most people woudn't need more than a Gig of space if EVERYTHING could use lookup tables. If you only needed one central copy of each windows OS, that right there would probably save petabytes of space. ;)
22:38 <PovAddict> Unix is designed to do that :)
22:38 <PovAddict> network-mount /usr :)
22:38 <jasong2> yeah, if I can manage to save up the money, I'm thinking about building an Atom-based crunching farm
22:39 <jasong2> So, I need to be studying all that stuff sometime soon
22:39 <PovAddict> and turns out that was the original purpose of /usr/local
22:39 <PovAddict> being "local" to that machine
22:39 <PovAddict> while /usr isn't
22:41 <PovAddict> apparently 81% of Einstein users are inactive
22:42 <PovAddict> so if I just store the users that got credit since the last stats dump, I'd save loads of space
22:42 <PovAddict> like incremental backups :)

22:44 <PovAddict> the five dumps I have, once uncompressed, are 329MB (!)
