17:18 <xcamel> Lunchtime experiment...
17:18 <xcamel> Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money." I laughed.
17:19 <xcamel> Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preferenceâ€“just imagine the coincidence.
17:19 <Soul_keeper> it's impossible to learn how to do things right in perl
17:19 <xcamel> When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in needâ€“the homeless guy outside.
17:19 <Welshman> but did you give him anything?
17:19 <xcamel> The server angrily stormed from my sight. I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I've decided he could use the money more.
17:19 <xcamel> The homeless guy was grateful.
17:19 <CoderForLife> heh
17:19 <Welshman> Obama will be the next president of the usa I think if he is not shot first
17:19 <xcamel> At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient deserved money more. I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application
17:20 <CoderForLife> don't mention things like that Welshman
17:20 <Welshman> I know
17:20 <Welshman> its been on my mind today
17:20 <Soul_keeper> i offered a homeless guy a cookie the other week when he asked me for money "for food", apparently the money was all he really wanted ...

18:12 <MTughan> WTF... The fingerprint reader on my new laptop had died. Now it just starts working again?
18:12 <Welshman> :)
18:12 <MTughan> Heh...
18:13 <Welshman> I want a acer gemstone

18:13 <MTughan> I dropped French in grade 9.
18:14 <Welshman> I am still doing french classes actually
18:14 <Welshman> free here
18:14 <Welshman> when I was in school I got kicked out of my french class
18:15 <Welshman> now I live here :)
18:15 <MTughan> lol
18:15 <Welshman> kept forgetting my books and was always late
18:16 <MTughan> Wow... fingerprint reader just died again.
18:16 <PovAddict> that's fast :)
18:16 <MTughan> So it seems.
18:17 <MTughan> Just four swipes of the finger was all it took it seems.
18:18 <MTughan> The odd thing is that the vendor ID and product ID are both 0000, so it's a hardware thing somewhere I'd say.

18:29 <Welshman> acer bundle some crap software though
18:30 <MTughan> Yes it is a laptop... Looks like my roommate's laptop too.
18:31 <Welshman> not expensive either

18:32 <MTughan> Lenovo T400 and 1st Gen MacBook here.
18:32 <MTughan> The Lenovo can easily get 6+ hours of battery life.
18:33 <Welshman> 3+ is enough

18:37 <MTughan> Heh.
18:37 <MTughan> rofl... Dell's homepage has a typo.
18:37 <Welshman> I think I need to install the keyboard software just to use the normal functions

18:38 <Welshman> brilliant
18:39 <Welshman> not tried dell

18:40 <MTughan> 19hr machine has max 2.4GHz processor at the 25W TDP, 14" screen, probably tested with the LED backlighting, GMA4500 graphics, and a standard SSD.
18:40 <Welshman> its just linux with a bit of xtras
18:40 <MTughan> "sod Mac"? What does that mean?
18:41 <CoderForLife> it's *orange& outside - setting sun on autumn leaves - everything is glowing

18:41 <MTughan> Welshman: I'm running OS X as my main OS, so explain.
18:41 <Welshman> ok
18:42 <MTughan> The Lenovo has XP and Linux (Fedora 8) on it.
18:42 <Welshman> geez
18:43 <MTughan> And from what I've been seeing, Linux is more stable, but the wireless doesn't work... :(

18:44 <Welshman> unix
18:44 <MTughan> lol
18:44 <Welshman> with a cool de
18:44 <MTughan> Yes, OS X is based on FreeBSD and Nextstep.
18:44 <Welshman> so waht

18:45 <Welshman> no games
18:45 <Welshman> good ones I mean

18:45 <MTughan> You can get Call of Duty 4 for Mac now.
18:45 <Welshman> ok
18:45 <Welshman> thats good
18:46 <MTughan> And not hacked, an official version. Same with Spore.
18:46 <Welshman> not bought it for windows yet
18:46 <Welshman> tell you what
18:46 <Welshman> if osx was for intel or amd systems I would buy it
18:47 <MTughan> Agreed.
18:47 <Welshman> makes you wonder
18:48 <Welshman> I dual boot
18:48 <MTughan> In fact, my next machine will be self built, and I might look at making a Hackintosh, along with XP or Vista, and Linux.
18:48 <Welshman> ubuntu and vista
18:48 <MTughan> I've had tons of problems with the Mac hardware, but nothing with the OS itself.
18:50 <xcamel> lol - ditto.
18:50 <MTughan> What have you had Jay?
18:51 <MTughan> I've had three motherboards fail, an optical drive replacement, and RAM replacement.
18:51 <xcamel> now that's a weather headlike..
18:51 <xcamel> er headline even..
18:51 <xcamel> "A FAST MOVING STORM WITH SOME GUSTO !"
18:52 <MTughan> A singing storm? lol
18:52 <xcamel> mostly minor problems with the modbook, and powermacs
18:53 <xcamel> could be woyse... as they say.
18:53 <MTughan> So nothing as bad as a MB crash then?
18:54 <xcamel> memory burnout at least twice
18:54 <MTughan> I've also had two hard drives fail, although I can't place that on Apple because I wrecked them by hitting the laptop hard enough to kill the drives... Replaced both myself.

18:55 <Romulus> Title: YouTube - Obama Citizenship: I Invented The Internet (Ep. 6: October Surprise) (at www.youtube.com)
18:55 <MTughan> Never had that happen... RAM replacement was because the Apple technicians thought that's why the MBs kept failing.
18:55 <xcamel> my wife's macbook hd exploded internally... I guess they all did.
18:55 <MTughan> I'm still trying to figure that one out.
18:56 <xcamel> the modbook runs hot anyway
18:57 <MTughan> Not that I don't think Apple supports the Modbooks.
18:57 <MTughan> Note*
18:58 <xcamel> no, they dont.
18:58 <xcamel> OWC/Axiotron does
18:58 <xcamel> McCain Up 50% to 48% in North Carolina
18:59 <xcamel> but I hate polls
18:59 <MTughan> Yeah. Which means that it's not Apple's fault if it runs hot. If OS X fails, that's probably Apple's fault.

20:59 <efc> I get about 50 mpbs on file transfers.
20:59 <efc> well around 4045
21:03 <MTughan> efc: Megabits or megabytes?
21:04 <MTughan> I have a gigabit "network" here too. In this case, it's two gigabit enabled computers connected with a Cat-5e cable. xD
21:04 <MTughan> Does enable faster file sharing than over the wireless-G though.
21:05 <efc> bits
21:05 <efc> I would think it could come closer to doing 100 than that, but its good enough I guess
21:05 <efc> only a 40 meg file, maybe on a really big one it would settle down
21:07 <PovAddict> generate the data
21:07 <PovAddict> and drop it to the bit bucket at the other end

21:16 <PovAddict> what the hell are they thinking?
21:16 <efc> 6+1 = 6.1, Duh
21:17 <MTughan> 2000 was 5.0, XP was 5.1, Vista is 6.0, 7 is 6.1.
21:17 <PovAddict> apparently there were compat. problems when Vista changed the major version

21:18 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: SPs don't increase that version number
21:19 <MTughan> Well, Vista RTM was 6.0 then.
21:19 <Tank_Master> they did this time

21:19 <Tank_Master> to the*
21:22 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: "Vista SP1 and S2008 share the SAME kernel (Build 6001), while Pre-SP Vista uses an easrlier one (Build 6000). All of these share the same version number of 6.0."
21:24 <Tank_Master> ahh, thought they uped the version to

21:27 *** efc has joined #boinc
21:27 <PovAddict> "Prerelease versions of the Windows SDK for Vista were originally installed into a "v1.0" folder. They wisely changed this to v6.0 to match Vista's version upon release.

21:33 * efc finds the channel listing very unhelpful
21:34 <PovAddict> ?
21:35 <efc> doing a full channel listing takes about 5 minutes, 54,000 channels (on another network though)

22:22 <efc> I wonder, if I put a second network card in a computer, if it will miraculously talk twice as fast over the network..
22:22 <MTughan> Nope. Unless you have multiple applications using network, then possible.
22:23 <efc> Channel bonding or something like that.. I vaguely remember a linux patch for it

22:25 <MTughan> Gah... Validate, you darn E@H WUs! The RAC on my new laptop has slipped from 500 to 300...
22:26 <efc> I lured your innocent WUs onto my 386, muhaha
22:26 <MTughan> No, it's because a lot of them were assigned to machines that detached.
22:27 <Tank_Master> waa?
22:27 <MTughan> Also, that my machine is returning them within two days.
22:27 <Tank_Master> nick just told me he wasnt sure when the project was shutting down
22:27 <MTughan> He posted on the forums. Check the link.
22:29 <Tank_Master> ok
22:30 <MTughan> Wow... In the pending WUs on E@H for me, 3 had client detach, and 8 had compute errors... The rest (about another 10 or so) are all in progress or unsent.
22:30 <MTughan> Have 22 WUs pending ATM, with 19 of those from the new laptop... Nice.

22:39 * efc thinks its time to upgrade to 10 gigabit ethernet
22:40 <MTughan> Isn't that fiber?
22:41 <efc> There are some copper variants.
22:43 <efc> Supposed to use Cat6a
22:43 <MTughan> I know Cat6 works with gigabit. Haven't heard of Cat6a.
22:44 *** desti has quit IRC
22:44 <MTughan> Ah... "It is expected to suit the 10GBASE-T (10Gigabit Ethernet) standard, although with limitations on length if unshielded Cat 6 cable is used."
22:44 *** desti has joined #boinc
22:45 <efc> You'd need a pretty hot bus to even feed at that speed
22:46 <MTughan> No consumer hardware supports 10G yet I don't think. Gigabit is becoming quite popular though.
22:47 <MTughan> Yep. "In 2008 10GBASE-T silicon is now available from several manufacturers with claimed power dissipation of 6W and a latency approaching 1 microsecond, however, these parts are not yet in production."
22:48 <efc> Heck, 10GBASE would be about as fast as PC-133 RAM, I think
22:48 <MTughan> Nice...
22:48 <MTughan> Wikipedia reference does point to a Broadcom controller with support for 10G ethernet.
22:51 <MTughan> I suppose at some point we'd hit a speed limit with copper in terms of electrical resistance, but fiber is getting cheaper.
22:55 <efc> There's been work on 100G ether, with no effort to do it on copper that I can see
22:56 <MTughan> Yeah, that could make sense. Although it could come to copper as it evolves.

23:28 <zombie67> hi MT!
23:28 <MTughan> Hey.
23:29 <zombie67> got my 1M in @ ramsey.
23:31 <zombie67> MT, found some more space!
23:32 <MTughan> Heh... Good.
23:32 <zombie67> forgot I also had thunderbird set up for email, and with two different account settings
23:32 <zombie67> user ids
23:32 <zombie67> whatever they are called
23:32 <zombie67> basically, including apple Mail, I had my work email triplicated
23:32 <zombie67> several gig each
23:33 <MTughan> That's where IMAP comes in handy.
23:34 <zombie67> yeah, it *is* an IMAP account.
23:34 <MTughan> Shouldn't increase local usage then. It's stored on the server.
23:34 <zombie67> but with a laptop, I have them set to download/sync everything locally.
23:34 <MTughan> Ah...
23:34 <zombie67> because I am frequently off line
23:35 <zombie67> and apple mail automatically keeps local copies by default too
23:36 <zombie67> so I am now 96/111 full
23:37 <zombie67> that should be enough to keep it from getting thrashy
23:37 <zombie67> or....I could buy the new MBP///
23:45 <zombie67> MT, which IM client do you use?
23:45 <MTughan> Colloquy.
23:45 <zombie67> er, not for irc, i mean IM
23:45 <MTughan> What IMs?
23:45 <zombie67> like AIM, Yahoo, etc
23:46 <zombie67> jabber
23:46 <MTughan> I have both Skype and YIM, but I rarely use the latter.
23:47 <zombie67> ah. I use adium for my multi-platofrm client
