01:26 <Tank_Master> yeah

01:27 <Tank_Master> drunk morons with guns

01:27 <efc3> long time ago, somebody around here got shot (killed) in the swing in their own backyard

01:28 <Tank_Master> eesh

01:28 <Tank_Master> not good

01:58 *** freakazoid0223 has joined #boinc

02:02 <quail> Tank_Master: thanks, great to be back :-P

02:02 <Tank_Master> :)

02:13 *** Eythan has joined #boinc

02:14 * efc3 looks at the S@H folding algorithm again

02:15 <Tank_Master> why?

02:21 <efc3> FPGA implementation, it stumped me last time

02:21 *** d00m1001 has quit IRC

02:21 <Tank_Master> fliped pin grid aray?

02:21 <Tank_Master> :P

02:21 <efc3> old project idea, hardware s@h implementation basically

02:27 <Tank_Master> nice

02:28 <efc3> had kinda given up, so much work, and cpus are getting crazy fast

02:28 <Tank_Master> yeah they are

02:28 <Tank_Master> and they keep getting faster

02:28 <Tank_Master> and now that you can crunch ona vid card...

02:29 <efc3> now, in theory the FPGAs are getting faster faster

02:29 <efc3> the vid cards are a possibility

02:30 <efc3> but haven't seen anybody trying that with s@h yet

02:34 <efc3> the FPGAs have amazing theoretical potential, basically have every gate on the chip doing exactly what you want

02:34 <efc3> but rather hard to hit that potential

02:38 <Tank_Master> yeah

02:38 <efc3>

02:38 <Romulus> <> (at

02:38 <efc3> did that a long time ago

02:41 <Tank_Master> nice

04:46 <MadHag> Hi, is rosetta down for anyone here?

04:47 <dudumomo> I try

04:47 <MadHag> thanks

04:47 <MadHag> its just that my server stopped crunching

04:47 <dudumomo> Same

04:47 <MadHag> cool

04:48 <MadHag> it happens I guess

04:48 <dudumomo> y

04:48 <MadHag> still I have 6 jobs to finish on my desktop

04:49 <dudumomo> for when ?

04:50 <MadHag> the desktop is fine, its working on 2 now and has another 4 in the que

04:50 <dudumomo> ok

04:51 <MadHag> but the server boinc client goes into rest mode when it runs out of jobs and it cant get anymore

04:51 <dudumomo> ...hmmm

04:52 <dudumomo> You can reset the project...

04:52 <MadHag> when the rosetta site is back up it will start again

04:52 <dudumomo> ok

04:53 <MadHag> boinc_cmd --project update usually gets it going

04:53 <MadHag> but if the site is down you dont have a chance :)

04:53 <dudumomo> yep

08:15 <CoderForLife> morning Jay (and re-hi Doug)

08:16 <CoderForLife> expecting to meet with the landscaper at the top of the hour to look at a plan

08:17 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

08:22 <CoderForLife> I knew you'd all be excited about that

08:27 <xcamel> more landscapers?

08:27 <CoderForLife> the only one

08:27 <xcamel> ah..

08:28 <CoderForLife> they have been working on a proposal/plan

08:28 <xcamel> how's it all holding up?

08:29 <CoderForLife> hill sides starting to crack after the rain, a bit of washout at the top sides of the wall

08:29 <CoderForLife> haven't heard from the fence installers yet

11:12 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: your Wall is cracking?!

11:12 <PovAddict> (I probably mixed up all your messages and that's not what you meant :P)

11:15 <PovAddict> "   I'm driving up to Massachusetts this morning for the Breast Cancer Brawl tournament. If you play, you should come out, it's for a great cause (boobs)."

11:16 <CoderForLife> no PovAddict

11:16 <CoderForLife> if the wall is a cake, then I'm talking to someone else about icing

11:17 <PovAddict> mmm cake

11:17 <CoderForLife> this is about putting down topsoil

11:17 <CoderForLife> putting back the steps around the house that we tore out

11:17 <PovAddict> speaking of "mmm"

11:17 <CoderForLife> etc

11:17 <PovAddict> I'm home alone and there is ice cream left, brb

11:21 *** dudumomo has joined #boinc

11:23 *** ELGono has quit IRC

11:23 <CoderForLife> the Dreaded Read Error 60

11:26 <PovAddict> "OS error code 130:  Owner died"

11:26 <PovAddict> I don't want to know what that error code is for...

11:27 <CoderForLife> the source of a forked process?

11:27 <PovAddict> the *user* owning a file?

11:28 <CoderForLife> lol  unlikely

11:28 <PovAddict> /etc/passwd needs inheritance information

11:28 <CoderForLife> I know from seeing Tron that programs barely believe in "users"

11:28 <PovAddict> "if user X dies, the files he owns are inherited by user Y"

11:32 <PovAddict> ok, there *was* ice cream left

11:32 <CoderForLife> heh

11:32 <PovAddict> I dealt with it

11:32 <CoderForLife> "OS error code 131: Ice cream died"

11:33 *** dudumomo has left #boinc

11:33 <PovAddict> "OS error code  29:  Illegal seek"

11:33 <CoderForLife> "Fork failed: Spoon succeeded"

11:33 <PovAddict> "OS error code  44:  Channel number out of range" that must be for TV interfaces :P

11:34 <CoderForLife> I/O channels, or paper tape control

11:34 <PovAddict> "OS error code  32:  Broken pipe" call plumber

11:34 <PovAddict> "OS error code  54:  Exchange full" M$ mail server?

11:35 <CoderForLife> trading dollars for euros

11:35 <PovAddict> "OS error code  68:  Advertise error" my kernel has adware!

11:35 <CoderForLife> your OS is placing ads in the personals

11:35 <PovAddict> "OS error code  87:  Too many users" kill some

11:35 *** ChanServ sets mode: +o wdsmia

11:36 <wdsmia> j/k

11:36 <wdsmia> lol

11:36 *** wdsmia sets mode: -o wdsmia

11:36 <CoderForLife> Lonely OS seeks companionship

11:36 <PovAddict> "OS error code 123:  No medium found" heh

11:36 <PovAddict> medium could be interpreted in more than one way

11:36 <CoderForLife> so much for the fortune feature

11:37 *** DerMeister has joined #boinc

11:37 <PovAddict> indeed

11:37 * wdsmia hates packing

11:38 <CoderForLife> but going without packing would be worse

11:38 <wdsmia> true

11:39 <wdsmia> trying to stuff a weeks worth into a carryon is a pain

11:39 <CoderForLife> nigh on impossible

11:40 <CoderForLife> unless you're going to a "nature" camp

11:41 <wdsmia> then theres TSA's  311 rule also

11:45 <wdsmia> wouldnt be bad if I didnt have to take that damn dinner jacket

11:47 <CoderForLife> I left my jacket at home this last week - kept taking it expecting to need it for dinner wear, but never used it in past years

13:11 <Tank_Master> 2 bears and you still dont find anyone attractive?

13:11 <KathrynM> when my head stops pounding and my stomach stops churning, maybe

13:11 <wdsmia> Tank_Master stick a stamp on it... its cheaper than airfare

13:11 <Tank_Master> lol

13:12 <Tank_Master> I have a 1/2c stamp, than thatll cover the cost of shipping?

13:13 <xcamel> re-hi

13:13 <Tank_Master> re=wb

13:13 <Tank_Master> -*

15:36 <wdsmia> lol

15:36 <daveyboy> if its obama tell him your busy

15:36 <Rookie_69> TankMaster should never wake up after being suddenly typed.

15:36 <PovAddict> 'sucks'

15:36 <PovAddict> hmm wdsmia's script doesn't say what it used to

15:36 <PovAddict> sucks

15:36 <PovAddict> nope

15:37 <daveyboy> my pc has gone quiet, rosetta have stopped giving out work and I am up to date

15:37 * Rookie_69 thinks about readding some of it.

15:41 <DerMeister> 1000 RAC? I'm glad if I can keep my 100 over all projects...

15:41 <daveyboy> rosett are giving out work :) time to update

15:41 <DerMeister> Was quite easy as long as PrimeGrid had it's primegen app running

15:41 <Tank_Master> 1000 rac, thats all?

15:43 <daveyboy> server is working as well, cool

15:43 <yoyo[RKN]> seems that the last 0.01% of ogr needs very long

15:44 <daveyboy> is there a way of making money from crunching?

15:44 <Tank_Master> yoyoyo!

15:44 <Tank_Master> daveyboy - no

15:44 <daveyboy> :(

15:45 <daveyboy> I would have a rack of servers at home

15:45 <Tank_Master> only one project attempted it, and it was suddently abandoned before it got off the ground

15:45 <yoyo[RKN]> you can get yoyo credits, daveyboy

15:45 <daveyboy> cool way to make a living though

15:45 <daveyboy> :)

15:48 <Tank_Master> I have 2 quads and 3 or 4 single cores

15:48 <MTughan> Currently with two duals crunching almost 24/7.

15:49 <PovAddict> daveyboy: what project(s) do you run?

15:49 <MTughan> Planning on getting a quad with a nice graphics card that can do PS3GRID or something next year.

15:49 <daveyboy> I have been at it for a month and have about 22k

15:49 <MTughan> Or maybe a hex-core.

15:49 <daveyboy> just risetta

15:49 <daveyboy> rosetta

15:49 <PovAddict> daveyboy: searching for "daveyboy" I found four users

15:49 <Tank_Master> ps3grid is a nice project

15:49 <daveyboy> no

15:49 <PovAddict> two on climateprediction, one on seti, and one on seti and WCG

15:49 <daveyboy> its David Harris

15:50 <daveyboy> how do your search?

15:50 <MTughan> Tank_Master: Yeah, but no Nvidia graphics card yet... Priced out a machine at $2400 yesterday (comparison with MBP), was able to get two GTX 280's. :D

15:50 <Tank_Master> I got .09 credits yesterday in pirates

15:50 <PovAddict> lol tank

15:50 <daveyboy> small fry heh

15:51 <MTughan> It takes a while...

15:51 <Tank_Master> :P

15:51 <MTughan> I just cracked 300K a couple weeks ago, after over two years.

15:51 <Tank_Master> Im waiting for the geforce 380 to come out

15:51 <PovAddict> I'm on 400k, partly thanks to attaching work machines :D

15:51 <MTughan> Now most of that time was admittedly crunching with just a P4... :P

15:51 <Tank_Master> 2x the shaders as the 280, 2GB ram, higher clock...

15:52 <Tank_Master> and only about $200 more

15:52 <MTughan> Tank_Master: Sure, but price wise... Wasn't planning on building the thing anytime soon.

15:52 <MTughan> If I wanted a high end machine, I'd probably do 2x ATI HD4870X2.

15:52 <Tank_Master> cant run ps3grid on ATI

15:53 <MTughan> Faster than the GTX 280s though.

15:53 <Tank_Master> so?

15:53 <Romulus> Somebody said so is iStat, Tank_Master

15:53 <MTughan> F off Rommie...

15:54 <MTughan> I have a ton pending in E@H ATM, so my curve should get steeper.

15:55 <daveyboy> bloody noisey though

16:46 <PovAddict> somebody must be downloading lots on your network

16:47 <MTughan> It's odd though. I get anywhere from 5000-7000kb/s on the test, but only 50KB/s on torrents. There seems to be more than enough seeders.

16:51 <Tank_Master> I just tossed 3 24port hubs a few months back

16:51 <efc> Noooooo

16:51 <efc> i have a 16 port 10 mpbs Synoptics hub

16:52 <wdsmia> 10BT?

16:52 <efc> bought thoroughly used 10 years ago. 10BT with an AUI uplink

16:53 <Tank_Master> best I have now is a 5 port 10/100 switch Im not using

16:53 <xcamel> we still have a bunch of them.. all still working nicely too

16:53 <Tank_Master> and some wierless routers with a switch in them

16:53 <efc> i would only use the 10 bmps for some mad scientist projects

16:53 <efc> massive number of ports that don't need to be fast

16:54 <Tank_Master> yeah

16:54 <Tank_Master> had you asked a year ago, ida sent you all 3 :P

17:15 <PovAddict> yes

17:16 <PovAddict> well, not all of it

17:18 <efc> I haven't seen the music in a long time but I think there was suppose to be a tied not where the triplets change from left to right hand

17:18 <PovAddict> I think I've never seen the full score

17:19 <efc> not->note

17:19 <efc> more of a 6/8 feel than 3/8

17:20 <PovAddict> I'm absolutely crap with scores

17:21 <PovAddict> I take forever to decode each note

17:21 <efc> Its just that the triplets should flow into each other, rather than sounding isolated

17:21 <PovAddict> much faster to let me hear the song and I'll just play it :)

17:22 <efc> i picked up the clarinet again a while ago, don't sound too terribly bad

17:22 <efc> Dad found a busted clarinet in a junk shop for $2. Its broken, but its sort of a rarity, might get a few more bucks out of it.

18:36 <wdsmia> was that before or after the piece of "art" ?

18:37 <MTughan> I don't know how long it's been there.

18:37 <Rookie_69> Last time I was in Ottawa, I was too busy watching the bumper in front of me to see any "art".
