03:24 <MTughan> Well that was fun...

03:24 <MTughan> Fire alarm. At 3AM!

03:24 <Tidus> lol that sucks

03:24 *** KathrynM has quit IRC

03:25 <Tidus> when i was in college they ALWAYS did that on finals

03:25 *** kathryn_ is now known as KathrynM

03:25 <Tidus> hi KathrynM

03:25 <MTughan> Out for 20 minutes... At least it stopped raining.

03:25 <Tidus> MTughan: i got me a new toy to play with :)

03:26 <MTughan> That would be...

03:26 <Tidus> HP Pavilion dv8327cl. Core 2 Duo T5500 (1.66ghz, 2mb, 667 fsb), 2gb ram, 2x100gb disk, 17" widescreen, geforce 7600 go video

03:26 <MTughan> Desktop machine?

03:26 <Tidus> laptop

03:26 <MTughan> 2x 100GB HDs? How big is this thing?

03:27 <Tidus> well, it's got a 17" widescreen mounted to it

03:28 <Tidus> it weighs about 9lb

03:28 <MTughan> I'd prefer my new laptop... Core 2 Duo T9400 (2.53GHz, 6MB, 1066 FSB), 2GB RAM, 160GB 7200rpm HD, 14" widescreen, and ATI HD3470 graphics.

03:28 <MTughan> 5.5lbs.

03:28 <Tidus> that aint bad, but how much did you pay for it?

03:28 <MTughan> $1600.

03:28 <Tidus> <-- $0

03:28 <MTughan> That would explain the GeForce 7600 graphics...

03:29 <Tidus> the nvidia 7600 was roughly equivalent to the ati x1k series

03:29 <MTughan> I had a 9600 series in my old desktop.

03:29 <MTughan> Radeon 9600 that is...

03:30 <Tidus> the nvidia 7600 is roughly equivalent to an ati x1600

03:30 <MTughan> Still older than mine. Although better than the Mac's card: Intel GMA950. Piece of sh*t.

03:30 <Tidus> my desktop has an nvidia 6600 in it, my old desktop had an ati x1950xt

03:31 <Tidus> and you're talking old mac if it's got the GMA950

03:31 <Tidus> the last white macbooks had the GMAx3100

03:31 <MTughan> I'm wanting to make a new desktop next summer, a power machine that won't go out for a good 4-5 years.

03:32 <MTughan> Yes, this is a 1st gen MacBook. Although from what I heard, the x3100s were a step back, so I got it when it was all right. Don't have the C2D processor though.

03:32 <Tidus> the x3100 is actually faster than the GMA950

03:32 <MTughan> Still doesn't mean overall performance boost.

03:33 <Tidus> this laptop had a pentium dual-core T2300 in it when i got it

03:33 <Tidus> what happened is a lady brought it to me to fix, and it had a fried video card

03:33 <MTughan> Anyway... If I were building a new system today, I'd be looking at either a Nvidia 9800 series or AT Radeon HD4800 series card.

03:33 <MTughan> ATI*

03:34 <Tidus> and since HP soldered the graphics to the mainboard

03:34 <Tidus> it needed the whole new mainboard

03:34 <MTughan> Yep...

03:34 <Tidus> i quoted the price to fix it, which was $400 plus my labor

03:34 <Tidus> she said keep it

03:34 <MTughan> Nice...

03:34 <MTughan> Attach it to BOINC, that many more credits. :P

03:34 <Tidus> and my friend had one similar that had a fried screen and keyboard

03:35 <Tidus> so he gave it to me, used the processor and mainboard out of his

03:36 <Tidus> now i have a decent laptop that beats the pants off my desktop

03:36 <MTughan> Both are still old systems.

03:36 <Tidus> yeah, it's a bit older but still runs ok

03:36 <Tidus> and not bad for free

03:37 <MTughan> I used to have a P4 Prescott @ 2.8GHz with 1GB RAM. Wasn't bad, but the MacBook tops it quite handily for BOINC performance.

03:37 <MTughan> OC'd to 3.15GHz.

03:37 <Tidus> and linux has drivers for the intel a/b/g wireless card built in

03:38 <Tidus> my desktop is a single core athlon64 3500 (socket AM2, 2.2ghz OC'd to 2.6) with 3gb ram

03:38 <MTughan> That is the thing about older systems... Kernel doesn't have drivers for my a/b/g/n wireless yet.

03:39 <Tidus> i'm happy with it

03:39 <Tidus> can't afford anything brand new that could beat it

03:39 <MTughan> For free? For sure.

03:39 <Tidus> any laptop that i could afford would easily be swallowed by this thing

03:39 <Tidus> in either processor, video, or both

03:39 <MTughan> Just a bit of labour on your part, and you have a newer laptop.

03:40 <MTughan> Although laptops are trickier than desktops...

03:40 <Tidus> yeah, a bit of labor as in completely re-assembling the whole damn thing from a box of parts :P

03:41 <MTughan> lol

03:42 <Tidus> battery sucks

03:42 <Tidus> due to massive screen, 2 hdds...

03:42 <Tidus> it'll run just short of 2h before petering out

03:43 <MTughan> Hehe... I can get 6+ hours out of this one.

03:43 <Tidus> if i broke the raid that was pre-set on its disks, i could run it off just one so the other would shut down

03:43 <MTughan> Why don't you? Performance?

03:44 <Tidus> yeah

03:44 <MTughan> Well, I should ask... RAID 0 or 1?

03:44 <Tidus> 1 for /boot and (root), 0 for /home

03:44 <Tidus> software raid

03:44 <MTughan> Ah...

03:44 <MTughan> So stability for /boot and performance for /home... What about /usr?

03:45 <Tidus> it's not on separate partition

03:45 <Tidus> so it's on the / partition

03:45 <MTughan> Oh, /boot and /... Okay.

03:45 <Tidus> which is raid 1

03:45 <MTughan> Sorry, I skipped over (root) before.

03:45 <Tidus> lol

03:45 <Tidus> most people get a tad confused when i just put "/" so i type (root)

03:46 <MTughan> I would imagine most people don't work in a command-line day in and day out though.

03:46 <Tidus> yeah

03:46 <Tidus> i do a fair bit of audio and video editing under linux, that's why /home is on raid0

03:47 <MTughan> Yeah, RAID 0 would definitely help there. Just hope the disks are up to par.

03:47 <Tidus> i've set the temporary directory for the programs i use to ~/tmp

03:47 <Tidus> and i exhaustively read/write tested them before installing

03:47 <MTughan> That's good.

03:48 <Tidus> and they are a matched pair of disks

03:48 <MTughan> If I had a bit of money, I might look into a RAID 10 setup.

03:48 <Tidus> raid5 works perfectly if you need striping and redundancy

03:48 <MTughan> Whether 1+0 or 0+1 would have to be determined.

03:48 <MTughan> Or 5 too. I had looked at that before.

03:48 <Tidus> 5 works wonders

03:48 <Tidus> that's what mystorage server runs on its 3x250 storage array

03:48 <MTughan> 3 disks minimum, right?

03:49 <Tidus> and yeah, 3 disks minimum

03:49 <MTughan> I believe 10 is 4 disks.

03:49 <Tidus> yeah, 10 needs 4 minimum

03:49 <Tidus> 5 only needs 3 for redundancy

03:49 <Tidus> you can set the array up in "failed" mode with only 2 disks

03:50 <Tidus> when you add the third it'll re-stripe and provide redundancy

03:50 <MTughan> Yeah. I'd have to stack up the advantages, and whether I'd need a RAID array. Hard disks can still eat up costs.

03:50 <MTughan> Although with terabyte drives available for $140 (I know!), it's not as much of a cost now.

03:50 <Tidus> i use 5 on my storage server because i save finished video projects that my customers have me do for a short period in case i have to fix something or they need more copies

03:51 <Tidus> i mostly edit wedding videos or birthday party videos

03:51 <MTughan> Wouldn't a faster processor help then? And definitely more RAM for video editors.

03:52 <Tidus> you'd be surprised how much disk performance factors in on that one

03:52 <Tidus> even with a raid-0 on /home, i can't peg out the processor

03:52 <MTughan> I wouldn't be surprised, but rendering an effect or movie would be hard on the processor.

03:52 <MTughan> iMovie maxes out my dual-core 2.0GHz.

03:52 <Tidus> yeah, that does take a bit of time

03:53 <Tidus> your average birthday video of 30 minutes takes about an hour 15 to an hour 30 to render

03:53 <MTughan> For just the editing, RAM and disk performance are key. Rendering needs more CPU, although lots of RAM is still helpful to prevent swapping.

03:54 <MTughan> Do you edit HD or SD video?

03:54 <Tidus> just SD

03:54 <Tidus> where i live, it's just your average redneck with a camcorder and he wants it turned into something presentable

03:54 <MTughan> I'd hate to see how long 720p video takes compared to the SD... Let along 1080p. xD

03:54 <MTughan> lol

03:54 <Tidus> yeah, ouch

03:54 <Tidus> i'd need a mac pro for that

03:54 <Tidus> :) :)

03:55 <MTughan> I wish...

03:55 <MTughan> Maybe you can contract out zombie's 8-core.

03:55 <Tidus> 8 cores of xeon power :) ... 8 gb of ram

03:55 <Soul_keeper> you don't _need_ a mac for anything

03:55 <MTughan> They go up to 32GB.

03:55 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: You do if you want to get it done in a lifetime.

03:56 <Tidus> macs were meant for graphics work

03:56 <Tidus> like video / audio / photo editing

03:56 <Soul_keeper> they use the same cpu as a pc

03:56 <MTughan> You call dual Xeon processors the same as a PC? Maybe a server, but not a consumer PC.

03:56 <Tidus> but not the same basic IO system

03:56 <Tidus> PCs still use BIOS (old, 30 years old), wehre macs use EFI

03:56 <Tidus> much more efficient

03:57 <MTughan> They just recently switched, but they do.

03:58 <MTughan> Although I have had the MB in this Mac fail three times.

03:59 <MTughan> Wow... Almost 4AM. I should be off to bed.

03:59 <Tidus> lol

03:59 <Tidus> especially after that FIRE ALARM

04:00 <MTughan> Fire alarm at 3:06AM, we got back in at 3:28AM, and I've been talking on IRC for half an hour.

04:00 <Tidus> lol

04:00 <MTughan> One thing though: at least the rain earlier stopped.

08:06 <Soul_keeper> excellent

08:07 <CoderForLife> this year is very challenging to my model

08:07 <Soul_keeper> it's challenging to everyone

08:07 <Soul_keeper> they all lost faith, just pure panic,  human nature is the only true guage

08:08 <CoderForLife> as soon as the model decides to move in, >blammo<

08:09 <CoderForLife> back-testing the current model shows a hypothetical gain of 2.6% this year

08:09 <Soul_keeper> everything always makes sense when you back test it ....

08:10 <Soul_keeper> politicians love to do that

08:11 <Soul_keeper> i gotta fall asleep,  good luck

08:11 <CoderForLife> thx tc

08:13 <CoderForLife> my actual gain this year-to-date is 1.1%

08:14 <CoderForLife> in the 401K account, that is

08:14 <CoderForLife> the wall was been all "loss"

08:19 <Soul_keeper>   those are the CPI numbers (less food/energy)   might be able to parse those with a script

08:19 <Romulus> <> (at

08:20 <CoderForLife> I get all my data by parsing HTML screen scrapes

08:21 <Soul_keeper> looks like we've averaged 4.8% annual inflation according to that data over the last 20yrs

08:31 <CoderForLife> from an RSI perspective, yes

08:31 <CoderForLife> no Bollinger Bands here

08:31 <CoderForLife> RSI is a factor in the buy/sell rules

15:00 <FreeLarry> humm whats the word on boincmanager 6.3.17? worth testing?

15:00 <PovAddict> heh xcamel will tell you :)

15:00 <FreeLarry> humm PovAddict with a comment like that - sounds like not

15:00 <Tank_Master> in my experence? not one bit

15:01 <Tank_Master> I have used it

15:01 <Tank_Master> for all of 5 min

15:01 <Tank_Master> then went back to .14

15:01 <FreeLarry> kay - sounds like i'll just update to 6.2.19 than

15:01 <PovAddict> FreeLarry: what version do you currently have?

15:01 <FreeLarry> just noticed most of machines at 6.2.6 or .12

15:01 <Tank_Master> unless you NEED v6, id stay away from it

15:01 <FreeLarry> not sure of linux machines

15:02 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: are you suggesting he goes back to 5.10.45?

15:02 <PovAddict> <.<

15:02 <Tank_Master> I only have 6.3.14 on my GPU comp

15:02 <FreeLarry> controlling 4 machines from one machine

15:02 <Tank_Master> all my others are 5.10.45

15:02 <PovAddict> 6.2 isn't *too* bad

15:02 <Tank_Master> 5.10 is better though

15:02 <PovAddict> at least compared to all the new brokenness in 6.3

15:02 <Tank_Master> MUSH more stable and predictable

15:02 <Tank_Master> yeah

15:02 <FreeLarry> 5.10.45 didn't work on the vista machine at all it seemed

15:03 <Tank_Master> sucks you must use 6.3 for GPU apps

15:03 <PovAddict> well duh

15:03 <Tank_Master> try installinh 5.10 into its own directory

15:03 <FreeLarry> ahh haven't got gpu apps that i know of

15:03 <Tank_Master> right now, only PS3grid has a GPU app for some GeForce 880s and higher

15:03 <Tank_Master> 8800s*

15:10 <FreeLarry> humm to new for most of my vid card

17:00 <xcamel> welcome to idiot hunter season...

17:00 <efc> Ugh.

17:01 * FreeLarry is that a crow - look for bb pistols

17:01 <efc> I'm having to find a new route to run, decided not to risk the national forest

17:01 <FreeLarry> quick hide the cows

17:01 <efc> 2 gig micro SD card in the GPS now.. $5

17:05 <efc> And there was only 2 megs on it..

17:06 <PovAddict> $5 for 2 gig?

17:06 <PovAddict> hope prices aren't linear

17:06 <PovAddict> $500 for 200gig :)

17:07 <PovAddict> a bit of a waste for 2 megs though

17:07 <efc> They are worse than that

17:07 <efc> I figured I'd go ahead and buy it before they got rare or something

17:07 <PovAddict> you should use one of those 16MB SDs that come with digital cameras

17:07 <PovAddict> out of the box

17:08 <efc> 2 gig in 1 cm^2

17:08 <PovAddict> most of that cm² is plastic though

17:08 <PovAddict> seen microSDs?

17:08 <efc> This is a microSD

17:08 <MTughan> Damn small.

17:08 <PovAddict> oic

17:09 <xcamel> msd's are a real pain

17:09 <efc> If I loaded high res topo of the state, it would probably surpass the original 64 meg card

17:09 <PovAddict> are there nanoSDs?

17:09 <efc> You'd need tweezers

17:09 <PovAddict> but you have dialup, you'd take forever to download it :)

17:09 <efc> You can order pre-programmed microSD's from Garmin, or DVDs, that would be the way to go..

17:10 <efc> And they make the MSDs at least as big as 8 gig but I think 2 was the limit for the device

17:12 <xcamel> I think my brain is going to melt...

17:12 <xcamel> this a$$h0l3 election season, then straight into xmas season.

17:13 <efc> I'm dreading XMAS radio already

17:13 <MTughan> Yes, you can get 8GB MicroSD cards.

17:14 <efc> I've got 5 1:24,000 topo quads on there and some tracks and stuff and its less than 2 meg

17:15 <xcamel> enjoy your sack of coal and hardtack of obomber wins.

18:42 <xcamel> cognitive dissonance?

18:43 <xcamel> like the news reports...

18:43 <CoderForLife> yup

19:02 <xcamel> now theres an insult and a half.

19:03 <CoderForLife> I'd be ashamed to have a copy

19:03 <PovAddict> I have a copy of Win95 somewhere here

19:03 <CoderForLife> I have a few of those

19:04 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: I have floppies of Win3.1 and DOS6, but it's an incomplete set... :(

19:04 <CoderForLife> how about a copy of Excel for OS/2?

19:04 <MTughan> That's sad...

19:05 <CoderForLife> I have a full install of Novell NetWare

19:05 <PovAddict> I threw away a CD of Ubuntu 5.10 a few weeks ago

19:05 <xcamel> a copy of Enable for Dos?

19:07 <MTughan> My aunt used to have a computer with Me on it... It didn't stick around long before my dad replaced it with XP.

19:07 <CoderForLife> I think I have Bob

19:07 <PovAddict> IIRC, during install, it asks if your computer is 386 or 486

19:08 <CoderForLife> I think Bob was the quickest install/uninstall I ever did

19:09 <CoderForLife> Second was ALICE the Pascal compiler

19:09 <MTughan> My dad, named Bob, has a CD from a band called BoB...

19:09 <MTughan> Just this random stuff you come upon once in a while.

19:09 <Tank_Master> I got rid of my windows ME beta 1 CD just a week ago

19:10 <MTughan> I have a Vista Beta 2 DVD at home... I should snap it in half.

19:12 * CoderForLife tried Vista, and snapped

19:13 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: do ALICE and Bob send each other encrypted stuff?

19:13 <MTughan> Why do you think I insisted on an XP downgrade for my laptop?

19:13 <CoderForLife> ALICE didn't edit very well, so I doubt it
