00:00 <MTughan> "It remains to be seen how easy it will be to simply hack in support for SLI on any X58 motherboard, regardless of certification status."

00:00 <Tank_Master> not that I think ill ever be abel to support the cost of 2 GUs :P

00:00 <Tank_Master> GPUs

00:00 <MTughan> Not at once. But putting them in at separate times, that's possible.

00:00 <Tank_Master> true

00:01 <MTughan> Just for kicks... I was speccing out a system with 2x HD4870X2's. xD

00:01 <MTughan> $1200 alone in video cards.

00:01 <MTughan> But 4 GPU cores in there.

00:01 <MTughan> Hmm... PovAddict: How many GPUs does BOINC support?

00:01 <Tank_Master> would be sweet on gpugrid

00:02 <MTughan> Except they're ATI cards. But I have another idea in mind...

00:02 <Tank_Master> lol

00:02 <MTughan> Remember the Fastra machine?

00:02 <PovAddict> cant resist this answer...

00:02 <Tank_Master> no

00:02 <MTughan> Hehe...

00:02 <PovAddict> try it and see :)

00:02 <MTughan> 4x GeForce 9800GX2's.

00:03 <MTughan> 8 GPUs in one machine.

00:03 <Tank_Master> lol

00:03 <MTughan>

00:03 <Romulus> Title: FASTRA (at

00:03 <Tank_Master> to bad none has made a dual 280

00:03 <Tank_Master> but id hate to see the power cost on that

00:03 <MTughan> 1500W PSU.

00:04 <MTughan> They say it's equivalent to the work of 350 CPU cores.

00:04 <Tank_Master> wow

00:04 <Tank_Master> z?

00:05 <zombie67> si?

00:05 <MTughan> Anyway... PovAddict: I guess that means as many as it can fine?

00:05 <MTughan> find*

00:05 <PovAddict> with these numbers, zombie must be masturbating

00:05 <Tank_Master> ahh, you are still here

00:05 <Tank_Master> lol

00:05 <MTughan> zombie67: A machine with 4x GeForce 9800GX2 cards. 8 GPUs in one machine, roughly equivalent to 90 quad core CPUs.

00:06 <zombie67> nic e

00:06 <PovAddict> *ducks*

00:06 <zombie67> you saw that video of the quad cruncher?

00:06 <MTughan> Video cards along would run you over $2000, let along everything else and the power consumption.

00:06 <MTughan> alone*

00:07 <zombie67>

00:07 <MTughan> That's the video on the page I just posted.

00:07 <PovAddict> more geek pr0n

00:08 <MTughan> That's the 8 GPU machine.

00:08 <Tank_Master> lol

00:08 <zombie67> oh, sorry, watching F1 qualifying

00:08 <zombie67> no spoilers!

00:09 <MTughan> No spoilers on the cars? How are they going?

00:09 <Tank_Master> lol

00:11 * PovAddict takes socks off

00:11 <PovAddict> run for your lives!!

00:11 <zombie67> pov, no spoilers!

00:12 <PovAddict> huh

00:13 * PovAddict doesnt see the relation between spoilers and my smelly ph33t

00:14 <zombie67> you are more local to the F1 stuff than the rest of us

00:14 <PovAddict> really? i care less than the rest of you tho

00:15 <Tank_Master> lol

00:15 <Tank_Master> I wouldnt count on that

00:15 <PovAddict> why am i more local, where are they?

00:16 <Tank_Master> cus your special?

00:17 <Tank_Master> holy craaaappppp

00:17 <Tank_Master> Windows 7 to scale to 256 processors

00:17 <Tank_Master> 0.0!

00:17 <PovAddict> yes, yes i am...

00:18 <PovAddict> lol who cares

00:18 <Tank_Master> heh

00:18 <PovAddict> it will be licrnsed per CPU i bet :p

00:18 <Tank_Master> true, like anyone here will ever have 256 cores

00:18 <Tank_Master> ?

00:19 <PovAddict> so that the win7 license costs you as much as the cpu

00:19 <Tank_Master> oh

00:19 <Tank_Master> why?

00:20 <PovAddict> per cpu... lotta money if you have 256

00:20 <Tank_Master> you meen the mroe CPUs you have, the more windows costs?

00:20 <Tank_Master> they never did before, why would you think so now?

00:21 <PovAddict> i saw a lot of server software like that... license per cpu, or only using x cpus unless you get a more expensive license...

00:21 <Tank_Master> yeah

00:22 <PovAddict> windoes currently does have artificial limitations on num of cpus

00:22 <Tank_Master> some of those count multicores and hyoerthreading as indivisual cores

00:23 <PovAddict> put vista home on a 16-core and i bet it wont see them all

00:23 <Tank_Master> no

00:23 <Tank_Master> only 4

00:23 <Tank_Master> 2 for home basic

00:24 <Tank_Master> but most people dont have 4 CPUs, so for most its not an issue

00:25 <PovAddict> but if you have a server like that, you cant use the home edition :p

00:26 <Tank_Master> why would you want to?

00:26 <Tank_Master> :P

00:27 <Tank_Master> why would you want to use home basic on anything?

00:27 <zombie67> f1 is in brazil

00:28 *** efc has quit IRC

01:55 <zombie67> is yoyo going to add ogr 26?

01:55 <Romulus> <> (at

01:56 <MTughan> EDT makes just to EST in 4 minutes.

01:56 <MTughan> jump*

01:56 <zombie67> yep

01:58 <Tank_Master> fun times

01:16 *** efc has joined #boinc

01:18 <efc> the space-heater network is sustaining 3.8 gflops

01:18 <Tank_Master> sweet!

01:20 <zombie67> is yoyo going to add OGR 26?

01:20 <efc> err, closer to 5 gflops, i left a core out

01:21 <Tank_Master> heh

01:21 <Tank_Master> not to bad, I guess

01:22 <efc> its really just two p4s and some p3s tagging along for the heat

01:22 <Tank_Master> lol

01:23 <Tank_Master> huh, just noticed I can see my neighbor's wierless

01:23 <Tank_Master> to bad verizon fios ships their routers with engription enabled

01:24 <Tank_Master> encription*

01:24 <MTughan> encryption there, TM.

01:24 <Tank_Master> thx

01:24 <Tank_Master> @$$

01:24 <Tank_Master> :P

01:24 <efc> Aww, takes the fun out

01:25 <MTughan> Hey, don't complain to me about your typing problems.

01:25 <Tank_Master> ;p;

01:25 <Tank_Master> then dont come to me compaining about fixing it

01:25 <Tank_Master> ;)

02:00 <Tank_Master> heh

02:00 <Tank_Master> glad to see BOINC is so smart

02:01 <Tank_Master> premed a WU at 99.995% compleat

02:01 <Tank_Master> time to compleation: 00:00

02:02 <MTughan> Premed?

02:02 <Tank_Master> stoped it to work on a differnt WU

02:02 <MTughan> Ah... Pre-empted. I hadn't heard premed before.

02:03 <Tank_Master> just seems screwy to stop working on a WU with .005 % and <1 second to go

02:04 <zombie67> BOINC is stoopid

02:04 <zombie67> we know this

02:04 <Tank_Master> really? its the term I picked up from others for what to call a WU stoping to wok on a differnt one

02:06 <Tank_Master> wow, I got a 2 diget number in pirates yesterday... .13 credits!

02:07 <MTughan> Hey look, I have the same thing... WCG task, 100% complete, time remaining is "---". It's preempted.

02:08 <Tank_Master> status "waiting to run"?

02:08 <MTughan> Yep.

02:08 <Tank_Master> sad

02:08 <MTughan> I just forced it to run, went for about two seconds, and into uploading.

02:08 <zombie67> I think it is not up to the client, but rather how the app is prigrammed

02:09 <zombie67> programmed

02:09 <zombie67> it has to do with checkpointing

02:09 <MTughan> Possible.

02:09 <Tank_Master> I forced it to run, and it took less than a sec to go to u/l

02:09 <MTughan> rofl...

02:09 <MTughan> &explosm

02:09 <Romulus>

02:10 <Tank_Master> nice

02:10 <MTughan> Hmm, I bet this one is rooted in some truth somewhere:

02:10 <Romulus> Title: UserFriendly Strip Comments (at

02:10 <Tank_Master> LOL

02:12 <MTughan> Maybe this?

02:12 <Romulus> <> (at

02:13 <MTughan> Yep. Here's an article on it:

02:13 <Romulus> <> (at

02:14 <MTughan> That's actually a little scary, that they can ban you using the games that you bought just because of something online.

02:16 <zombie67> this is similar to music

02:17 <zombie67> do you *really* own that CD you bought?

02:17 <MTughan> Oh, CDs are easy. They can't control it once you rip it to MP3 or WAV, neither have DRM in them.

02:17 <MTughan> WMA and AAC on the other hand...

02:17 <zombie67> not control.

02:17 <zombie67> I am talking about "rights"

02:18 <zombie67> "ownership"

02:18 <zombie67> do you really "own" anything you pay for...?

02:18 <MTughan> Good question... It's like software, although there, they've explicitly said they license you the software.

02:19 <MTughan> Yes. A house or car.

02:19 <zombie67> no

02:19 <zombie67> the gvmt tells you what you can/can't do with either of them

02:20 <zombie67> can't drill on your property....can't drive your car on their roads without pemission

02:22 <MTughan> Technically then, yes, you don't own anything. However, can it be taken away morally?

02:22 <zombie67> well, moral, the law is clearly not

02:22 <MTughan> Because items and money can move around very often, and not necessarily fairly. Say something's stolen.

02:23 <zombie67> it's technical

02:23 <zombie67> there is no right/wrong in law

02:24 <MTughan> This is starting to hurt my head... It's 2:30/3:30, and I'm definitely not a lawyer or judge.

02:25 <Tank_Master> LOL

12:09 <PovAddict> my Pentium IV machine has bluescreened twice in a day

12:09 <PovAddict> yesterday I installed SP3...

12:10 <Soul_keeper> give it to the salvation army

12:11 <Tank_Master> P4s arent worth the cost to run

12:11 <Tank_Master> a dual core atom can outperform most P4s

12:11 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: it's my sister's "IM and waste time on the internet" machine

12:11 <Tank_Master> ah

12:11 <Tank_Master> lol

12:11 <PovAddict> I just happen to run BOINC on it too

12:12 <Tank_Master> gee, howd that get there? ;)

12:12 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

12:12 <PovAddict> lol

12:12 <PovAddict> it doesn't run 24/7

12:12 <PovAddict> before the P4 I had a Pentium II on that role

12:13 <PovAddict> 400MHz

12:18 <Tank_Master> lol

12:18 <Tank_Master> and to think that was smokin in the day

12:18 <Soul_keeper> yeah 10+yrs ago ...

12:21 <Soul_keeper> elvis and 1960's muscle cars are still cool tho right ?

12:23 <Tank_Master> no

12:23 <Tank_Master> I hate elvis's music

12:24 <MTughan> 60's cars just look ugly.

12:25 <MTughan> Or maybe I'm thinking 50's... I don't know. I don't follow them.

12:26 <Tank_Master> to long ago

12:26 <Tank_Master> consume to much gas

12:26 <MTughan> Literally in my case. I was -30y old at that point.

12:26 <Tank_Master> eesh

12:26 <Tank_Master> old fart

12:27 <Tank_Master> :P

12:27 <MTughan> Haha.

12:38 <quail> how to get yourself -voice from a channel

12:38 <MTughan> Be very nice to Jay and Doug?

12:39 <wdsmia> :P

12:39 <quail> tell a person how to remove 3rd party P2P programs under linux with => sudo rm -rf /

12:40 <MTughan> lol

12:40 <MTughan> That won't always work though. sudo under my account doesn't work.

12:40 <MTughan> I have modified sudoers yet.

12:40 <MTughan> haven't*

12:40 <quail> limewire under linux?

12:40 <MTughan> Hmm>

12:41 <MTughan> Man, I can't type properly today... TM: I'm joining you.

12:42 <quail> MTughan: well I got pissed with all the question about how to install limewire, and when she wanted to uninstall it I told her sudo rm -rf /

12:42 <MTughan> rofl

12:42 <MTughan> You lost voice?

12:43 <quail> and now I have been devoiced from the channel after a arse kicking from people in the channel

12:43 <MTughan> What I was saying that sudo doesn't always work. On Ubuntu it does, because it's already set up. Fedora doesn't have it set up by default, so I have to modify sudoers to give me that permission.

12:44 <quail> MTughan: I can see what happening in the channel but no one can hear me

12:44 <PovAddict> that isn't the point MTughan

12:44 <PovAddict> most Linux channels involving noobs have strict rules on "ban if you give malicious commands"

12:44 <MTughan> I know. But technicalities.

12:44 <PovAddict> because the noobs WILL run them

12:45 <quail> PovAddict: you right I was being a dick

12:45 <MTughan> >:D

12:45 <MTughan> That gives a great emoticon over here... :P

12:45 <quail> PovAddict: and there was no excuse for it

12:45 <PovAddict> >:o

12:45 <PovAddict> o:<

12:45 <Tank_Master> bad quail!

12:45 * Tank_Master whips quail with a mouse cord

12:46 * quail gets pissed with people that want to run things like limewire under linux

13:00 <Tank_Master> its a forken bomb!

13:00 <quail_linux> PovAddict: you screwed over 2 pc's

13:01 <PovAddict> how?

13:01 <Romulus> It has been said that how is breakfast, PovAddict

13:01 <quail_linux> and now I can't back into my laptop[

13:02 <Tank_Master> lol

13:02 <Tank_Master> ouch

13:02 <quail_linux> it not accepting my pass

13:02 <PovAddict> no way a forkbomb could screw up your login...

13:03 <quail_linux> in now

13:04 <MTughan> What the... "[error] Process creation failed: Access is denied (0x5)" From BOINC.

13:04 <quail_linux> PovAddict: that bomb toke out 2 pc's here

13:04 <PovAddict> if you ran it on a single machine, there is no way it can break others

13:05 <quail_linux> PovAddict: the machine I ran it from was ssh'ed into another

13:06 <quail_linux> PovAddict: it took out my laptop too

13:06 <PovAddict> so you ran it on the real machine and on the ssh session?

13:06 <quail_linux> yep

13:07 <PovAddict> then you ran it on two machines

13:07 <quail_linux> seem to have

13:07 <MTughan> SSH, all commands go to the other machine. So you did.

13:07 <quail_linux> no I ran it on the ssh connected machine

13:08 <quail_linux> but it borked my laptop too

13:08 <PovAddict> anyway

13:08 <PovAddict> you ran a command without knowing what it did, how Windowsy of you :P

13:08 <quail_linux> now where was I in that movie

13:09 <Tank_Master> heh PovAddict

13:09 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

13:09 <Tank_Master> quail_linux - you were just at the point where the ulgly fat chick strips

13:09 <quail_linux> PovAddict: I know it bork the machine I was cnnected to, but my laptop

13:10 <xcamel> there, now the barn cam looks better

13:10 *** quail has quit IRC

13:10 *** quail_linux is now known as quail

13:10 <Tank_Master> whats the link for the cams again?

13:11 <MTughan> PovAddict: Do you know what the #define __EMX__ is?

13:11 <quail> PovAddict: tell me what is the real nature of that fork bomb

13:11 <xcamel>

13:11 <MTughan> It should just start forking processes over and over again until the machine runs out of memory.

13:12 <quail> PovAddict: and how did it cripple 2 systems

13:12 <MTughan> "Forkbomb: Executes a huge number of processes until system freezes, forcing you to do a hard reset which may cause corruption, data damage, or other awful fates."

13:13 <quail> MTughan: how it crash my laptop that was ssh'ed into the system I ran it on?

13:13 <MTughan> The only thing that should've maybe happened was the SSH shell becoming unresponsive.

13:14 <MTughan> Did it crash the laptop, or did you shut it down?

13:14 <quail> MTughan: it crashed it, I had to press the power button

13:14 <MTughan> Kernel panic? What kind of crash?

13:15 <quail> MTughan: just frooze

13:15 <MTughan> X froze or the shell session di?

13:15 <MTughan> did*

13:15 <quail> and desktop did the same

13:15 <MTughan> You could've always tried just restarting X too. Ctrl+Alt+Backspace for next time.

13:16 <quail> I could not do anything on laptop, it not want to know what I had to say

13:16 <MTughan> Anyway, doing a hard shutdown introduces another host of possible problems, not the least of which is if the hard drive was in the middle of a write when it shut down.

13:16 <MTughan> But I can almost guarantee you it wasn't caused directly by the forkbomb.

13:17 <quail> MTughan: I know, but I could not get to pure terminal on laptop

13:17 <MTughan> That doesn't make a difference if you have data corruption.

13:17 <quail> MTughan: I sure I am alright here

13:17 <xcamel> I had to remount the camera to keep it away from the weather

13:18 <quail> sure there no data curruption

13:18 <MTughan> Can you get in as root?

13:18 <quail> and if there is it nothing of importance

13:19 <quail> laptop yep

13:19 <MTughan> Even if you can't get in as root, you're still able to reset the passwords.

13:19 <Tank_Master> snow all gone already?

13:19 <quail> desktop yep\

13:19 <MTughan> If you can log in as root, do so, then use su <user> to go in as yourself and change the password.

13:20 <PovAddict> MTughan: 0x5 is the Windows error code for "access denied"

13:20 <MTughan> From root, that shouldn't require a password.

13:20 <PovAddict> I think quali said now he CAN get in

13:20 <MTughan> PovAddict: So why hasn't it happened before then? This is the first task that's failed.

13:21 <PovAddict> __EMX__ is OS/2

13:21 <MTughan> All right, thanks. I was just looking through the code, and one of the three possible places was in an __EMX__ only spot.

13:21 <quail> MTughan: I am on my laptop now and have been for little while

13:22 <CoderForLife> somebody looking for me?

13:22 <quail> CoderForLife: me earlier

13:23 <CoderForLife> came inside to order a pizza

13:23 <quail> mmm pizza

13:24 * quail teleports to CoderForLife place

13:24 <CoderForLife> bting money

13:24 <CoderForLife> er bring

13:24 <Tank_Master> pizza!

13:24 <quail> CoderForLife: how much the pizza?

13:25 <CoderForLife> with airline fares?

13:25 <quail> CoderForLife: and I bring a carton good aussie beer too

13:25 *** PovAddict has left #boinc

13:25 <quail> CoderForLife: nah I can teleport :-P

13:26 * quail just puts the other half the teleport machine on a plane :-P

13:27 <quail> when it gets there and you got it setup, let me know

13:27 <CoderForLife> gotta get it ordered here

13:27 <quail> sorry bad simpsons joke

13:27 <MTughan> Isn't this a little extensive for pizza?

13:27 *** Eythan has joined #boinc

13:28 <quail> MTughan: it put on what you put the value on meeting someone you talk to

13:29 <CoderForLife> I plan to sell the teleport machine to the Defense Dept aftewards

13:29 <quail> CoderForLife: after I leave there the of programing self destruct

13:30 <CoderForLife> make sure "teleport is complete" before that

13:30 <MTughan> Inching ever nearer to 400K here... 397,323 now.

13:31 <quail> CoderForLife: one half can't work with out the other :-P

13:31 *** Eythan has quit IRC

13:31 <CoderForLife> right, you wouldn;t want it destructing while in progress

13:32 <Tank_Master> why?

13:32 <CoderForLife> I said *he* wouldn't

13:33 <xcamel> 'lo Don

13:33 <CoderForLife> Hello Jay =)

13:33 <CoderForLife> pizza order placed online - ETA 1/2 hour

13:36 <CoderForLife> well - back downstairs and then more chores outside - it's beautiful out there

13:56 <FreeLarry58> morn all

13:57 <quail> meep meep FreeLarry58

13:57 <FreeLarry58> quail if you around on tuesday could use your help in trying to set up broter mfc-9840 printer on linux machines

13:57 <FreeLarry58> brother

13:57 <FreeLarry58> lan based printer

13:57 <efc> You can have 32 cores with this..  with a daughterboard

13:57 <Romulus> <> (at

13:58 <FreeLarry58> please don't get me drooling again quail

13:58 <FreeLarry58> oops efc

13:58 <efc> I will abstain from checking the price

13:58 <FreeLarry58> know it would knock my socks off

14:01 <efc> 4 PCIe x16 slots to boot

14:02 <efc> that might be a typo

14:03 <FreeLarry58> humm one of those linux machines keeps losing it eth0 when rebooting

14:03 <efc> the daughterboard is $600 and the mb is $800

14:03 <FreeLarry58> ouchy

14:04 <efc> On the other hand, Christmas is coming!

14:04 <efc> heh, 3 gigabit ethernet ports..

14:04 <efc> 16 DDR2 sockets

14:05 <efc> 16"x13".. that might not even fit in my old huge Inwin case

14:05 <FreeLarry58> sounds like a rackmount only case

14:06 * FreeLarry58 slaps head - forgot linux case sensitive even for users - no wonder couldn't get signed in

14:07 <FreeLarry58> finally updates done on two machines rebooted and boinc running again

14:08 <efc> For the winter I have my 2 p4 + 2 p3 space heater network set up, plus a p200 for cold snaps

14:09 <FreeLarry58> lol lost 3 P4 due to ovrheating this summer

14:09 <FreeLarry58> replaced with a dual core and 2 quads

14:10 *** Eythan has joined #boinc

14:10 <efc> I could have picked up some more cheap but don't want them. Power hogs.

14:10 <FreeLarry58> yup

14:10 <FreeLarry58> poser bills droped 10 usd per month after changeover

14:10 <FreeLarry58> power

14:12 <efc> Can get 4 socket blades for about $5k a piece. doesn't seem like much of a deal.

14:14 <FreeLarry58> off to pay for the wifes new printer - she happy to be able to print her emails and pictures now - fax was a bonus

14:14 <efc> will take 192 gig of memory, though

14:14 <efc> Later FreeLarry

18:11 <Tank_Master> is there any way to know how much someone has contributed to a team?

18:31 <xcamel> "ask them"

18:32 <Tank_Master> ok... is there any way to know how much *I* have contributed to a team?

18:38 <PovAddict> no, there is no way to know how many credits you have been granted since joining the team

18:38 <PovAddict> but afaik when you join a team, all your current credits go to the team too

18:38 <Tank_Master> thats crappage

18:38 <Tank_Master> :P

18:38 <PovAddict> so how much you contributed to a team = total credits you have

18:38 <Tank_Master> no they dont, cept for the climate project

20:53 <xcamel> win 7?

20:53 <PovAddict> Windows 7

20:53 <PovAddict> Vista + 1

20:54 <xcamel> IQ -3

20:54 <CoderForLife> Vista 2.0 --  need to wait until Vista 3.0 before it barely usable

20:54 <PovAddict> Vista is already ME 2.0

20:55 <CoderForLife> OK  ME 4.0 then

20:55 <PovAddict> :D

20:56 <MTughan> What's ME 3? Win7?

20:56 <CoderForLife> by my calculus, yes

20:56 <xcamel> winduhs is winduhs is winduhs

20:57 <PovAddict> calculus? :P

20:57 <MTughan> Was originally a BASIC compiler. No wonder Windows started off so bad.

20:57 <CoderForLife> off to dreamland - Palin is here in Clermont County, Obama is down at the University of Cincinnati

20:57 <MTughan> Calculus... Can you take the derivative of Vista?

20:58 <MTughan> Probably 3 * ME. xD

20:58 <CoderForLife> there is no area under the Vista curve

20:58 <MTughan> Actually... Make derivative of Vista equal to 2 ME, and that makes Vista ME^2. xD

20:59 <CoderForLife> gn folks
