17:20 <CoderForLife> we were making sure of clearances behind one of the computer racks in the data center for installation of the mitigation system

17:21 <CoderForLife> danged glaciers dumped their load of uranium under my house, apparently

17:21 <wdsmia> lol my data center is my radon mitigation system

17:22 <CoderForLife> your outside exhaust?

17:22 <wdsmia> yep

17:22 <CoderForLife> I can understand that

17:23 <CoderForLife> you have radon problems there?

17:23 <wdsmia> some but not bad

17:24 <CoderForLife> avg indoor radon levels in my county is 4.3 pCi/L

17:25 <CoderForLife> EPA action level is 4

17:25 <CoderForLife> mine has been averaging about 3 to 3.2 over the last year

17:26 <CoderForLife> it jumped to 10.4 on the 10th, confirmed when I got back on the 17th

17:26 <CoderForLife> it's 7.8 currently

17:26 <wdsmia> The Iowa Department of public health reports that 7 out of 10 homes in Iowa show elevated levels of radon, above the "action level" of 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L).

17:27 <CoderForLife> yup like here

17:27 <CoderForLife> and we are in the highest level area of the county

17:43 <CoderForLife> heh

17:44 <PovAddict> seen in a forum sig: "Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana."

17:44 <CoderForLife> ah, the wisdom of the ages

17:45 <PovAddict> <dogmeat> stock market gained nearly 900 pts today, and i gained nearly 10lbs from lov'n tasty foods

17:45 <PovAddict> interesting comparison

17:45 <MTughan> Seen on E@H: "I have made this letter longer than usual, because I lack the time to make it short." - Blaise Pascal

17:45 <PovAddict> and the time to write that?

17:46 <MTughan> Blaise Pascal was a mathematician.

17:46 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: and right along with that they say Windows 7 internal version number will be 6.1

17:47 <PovAddict> confuuuuuuusing

17:47 <PovAddict> "The world's largest software maker also is making Word, Excel and other key elements of Office — its flagship "productivity" programs — able to run in a Web browser."

17:47 <PovAddict> *throws up, again*

17:47 <CoderForLife> I learned early in my career that version number are totally a marketing decision

17:48 <CoderForLife> dBase II was named that to make it sell better

17:48 <PovAddict> they're making it "7" for marketing reasons and "6.1" for compatibility reasons

17:48 <CoderForLife> there never was a dBase I

17:48 <CoderForLife> it was called Vulcan

17:48 <PovAddict> there was never a BOINC 1.0 either

17:48 <MTughan> They avoid bad puns using 7 than if they had named it Windows 6. Windows Sex anyone?

17:49 <PovAddict> MTughan: also, Vista is 6.0 internally...

17:49 <MTughan> Yeah, but it's not known as Windows 6, even though it is NT v6.

17:49 <PovAddict> Windows 666

17:49 <MTughan> However, I have to be off to class...

17:49 <CoderForLife> when I worked for a software company, we went from version 4 to version 7 because a competitor went from version 5 to version 6

17:49 <PovAddict> BOINC started at version 2

17:50 <PovAddict> because it was SETI II

17:58 <DerMeister> nothing... but specifying a bench in the park as address is somewhat strange ^^

17:59 <PovAddict> Address: None (nomad)

18:02 <xcamel> that's how desperate the obamanation has gotten..

18:03 <CoderForLife> they could move the bench between precincts and voting multiple times

18:06 <Romulus> Rumor has it FR is getting crushed, PovAddict

19:58 <xcamel> really shouldn't be pulling any...

19:59 <KathrynM> I thought you'd enjoy that PovAddict

19:59 <xcamel> not..

19:59 <xcamel> geeeezzz 66.5%

19:59 <PovAddict> wHAT

19:59 <xcamel> why?

19:59 <PovAddict> 66%?!

19:59 <xcamel> uh-huh

20:00 <Tank_Master> is .19 safe to upgrade to?

20:00 <Tank_Master> at least for win x64?

20:00 <Tank_Master> ok

20:01 <xcamel> never pulled more than 2% before - and not 'real' priority either

20:01 <PovAddict> how many tasks do you have?

20:02 <xcamel> oh.. boinc tasks?

20:02 <PovAddict> yes, workunits

20:03 <PovAddict> boinc_cmd --get_results  | grep project | wc -l

20:04 <xcamel> that needs to be fixed..

20:04 <xcamel> now it has settled down..

20:05 <xcamel> back to 4%

20:05 <PovAddict> wtf

20:05 <PovAddict> did you change tabs or anything?

20:05 <xcamel> guess it was just getting situated

20:05 <xcamel> but it back in the systray

20:06 <xcamel> oops.. back to system hog mode

20:07 <xcamel> now not..

20:08 <PovAddict> run "./boinccmd --get_results | grep project | wc -l" on BOINC dir, it will say how many WUs you have

20:19 <PovAddict> also, I ran it myself, can confirm the problem... strange behavior...

21:37 <PovAddict> doesn't that happen with glasses?

21:37 <nickuwo> good call Pov

21:37 <PovAddict> need to put on your glasses before searching where in the house you left your glasses

21:38 <nickuwo> need to take memory pills to remember where your glasses are, but you need your glasses to find your memory pills :)

22:54 <Tank_Master> no

22:54 <Tank_Master> NT3.something was

22:54 <PovAddict> NT3.5 was before Win95?

22:54 <Tank_Master> yeah

22:55 <Tank_Master> and I didnt think 95 was fully 32bit

22:55 <PovAddict> well no, it still uses DOS for many things

22:55 <Tank_Master> but that was to long ago to remember

22:56 <Tank_Master> me was the first of that series to not allow 16bit drivers

22:56 <Tank_Master> which led to a lot of the problems, for driver manufactures were laze and still stuck in 16bit code, those causing me to crash

22:56 <PovAddict> the same is happening now

22:56 <Tank_Master> yeah

22:57 <PovAddict> with manufacturers too lazy to make 64-bit drivers

22:57 <Tank_Master> lazzy @$$ people

22:57 <Tank_Master> marketing get in the way "hey, if the drivers donr work, they need to buy a new product and MS gets blamed for the incompatibility!

22:58 <Tank_Master> so they drag heir feet

23:00 <MTughan> Yay, wireless works with F10 beta! :D

23:01 <MTughan> But I lost the graphics drivers. :(

23:01 <Tank_Master> lol

23:01 <Tank_Master> one step forward...

23:01 <MTughan> 1152x864 isn't pretty on a 1440x900 widescreen display.

23:01 <Tank_Master> no, I would think not

23:06 <MTughan> PovAddict: Any idea what the variable "version" is supposed to contain?

23:07 <MTughan> On a shell.

23:07 <PovAddict> shell's version?

23:07 <PovAddict> I get 1.22.3

23:07 <PovAddict> and yep that's the shell version

23:07 <MTughan> No, ${version}.

23:07 <PovAddict> yes

23:08 <PovAddict> echo $version

23:08 <PovAddict> 1.22.3

23:08 <PovAddict> fish --version

23:08 <PovAddict> fish, version 1.22.3

23:08 <PovAddict> I can't get the damned boincmgr to fail in the way the official binaries fail

23:08 <MTughan> Hmm... Looking through a script in the ATI driver install, seems to be failing because of ${version}. It's blank on both F10's bash and OS X.

23:09 <PovAddict> well high chance the script is using that variable for its own uses

23:09 <PovAddict> most shell- or environment-defined variables are uppercase

23:09 <MTughan> But it's not defined anywhere, that's why I asked.

23:10 <MTughan> Unless it's defined by a previous script. Damned if I'm going to look through them.

23:11 <PovAddict> I've done enough tests to be sure:

23:11 <PovAddict> the manager from official binaries eat CPU, my self-compiled manager doesn't

23:11 <PovAddict> it could be because of the wxWidgets version

23:11 <PovAddict> I'm not about to compile wxWidgets 2.4 from source...

23:12 <Tidus> MTughan: whats up?

23:13 <PovAddict> sleep ->

23:13 <Tidus> lol

23:13 <PovAddict> I don't want to go to w$%& tomorrow :(

23:13 <Tidus> i feel ya there man

23:14 <PovAddict> this boinc bug being one of the reasons

23:14 <PovAddict> I won't be able to do any more experiments until the afternoon when I'm back from w$%&

23:15 <PovAddict> rly gone ->

23:16 *** Tidus has quit IRC

23:21 <Tank_Master> c-ya PovAddict

23:31 *** efc has quit IRC

23:58 *** MacG has joined #boinc
