00:13 <Romulus> http://www.xkcd.com/

00:37 <efc> the 2xxx 8xxx etc has something to do with validation in multi CPU setups

00:37 <efc> been around since before multicore

00:46 <Tank_Master> huh?

00:46 <Tank_Master> waa?

00:46 <Tank_Master> :P

00:46 <MTughan> 'lo TM

00:46 <MTughan> &xkcd

00:46 <Romulus> http://www.xkcd.com/

00:46 <Tank_Master> wasnt me who said that, MT

00:47 <MTughan> I thought it might've been, because we've been talking about procs a lot over the past few days. Guess it's been mostly Nehalem though.

00:47 <Tank_Master> true

00:47 <MTughan> No, I know who it was now. ChuckPa.

00:47 <Tank_Master> mayby I did, I just dont remember saying it

00:47 <Tank_Master> ahh

00:47 <Tank_Master> I can believe that

00:47 <MTughan> It was in #rieselsieve a couple days ago.

00:48 <Tank_Master> smart @$$ (in a good way) guy he is :P

00:48 <Tank_Master> ya

00:48 <MTughan> Anyway, you'll like today's xkcd.

00:48 <Tank_Master> yeah, I did

00:48 <Tank_Master> :P

00:51 <MTughan> Damn, these are some nice icons... http://lbaumann.com/icons.html

00:51 <Romulus> Title: laurent baumann | icons (at lbaumann.com)

00:51 <MTughan> Just downloaded Blend.

00:56 <MTughan> Yep... 3x+1's work generator is now shut down.

01:51 <Tank_Master> why?

01:59 <MTughan> Read the project's front page. 3x+1 is shutting down.

02:00 <Tank_Master> crap

02:00 <Tank_Master> so is ABC

02:00 <Tank_Master> I was hitting ABC with plans on coming back to 3x+1 later

02:00 <Tank_Master> are they dont giving out work for good now?

02:00 <MTughan> As I know.

02:01 <Tank_Master> bummer

02:03 <MTughan> I think I'm going to have to get familiar with an image editor again... Just got a new cool icon set, but doesn't have all the applications in it...

02:07 <Tank_Master> howd you like this as your desktop? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNZy2ZwV9Gg&fmt=18

02:07 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5dz7w8> (at www.youtube.com)

02:09 <MTughan> Cool...

02:10 <Tank_Master> more here -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-_IOeO5VAY&fmt=18

02:10 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5r7jh8> (at www.youtube.com)

02:10 <Tank_Master> those all run on vista

02:12 <MTughan> What, is Vista not hard enough on the graphics card by itself? :P

02:13 <MTughan> Ah, nice... Author's been kind enough to bundle a blank version of the icon background.

02:20 <Soul_keeper> they got the movie "jackass" on spiketv now

02:20 <Soul_keeper> show*

17:37 <PovAddict> hey CoderForLife

17:38 <MTughan> Damn slow...

17:38 <CoderForLife> hey Nic

17:38 <MTughan> Something's really slowing my machine down...

17:39 <PovAddict> a VNC brute force? :)

17:50 <Rookie_69> Hi, Doug.

17:50 <Rookie_69> Hi, Don.

17:58 *** DerMeister has quit IRC

18:03 <Rookie_69> My Orbit WU is almost 64% done after over 400 hours... I wonder if it will be done by the 13 jan. deadline.

18:04 <MTughan> &math [math convert [math 400 / 0.64] hours to days] - [math convert 400 hours to days]

18:04 <Romulus> MTughan: 9.375

18:04 <MTughan> 9.375 days left.

18:05 <Rookie_69> ... or whatever the program decides it will take...

18:05 <MTughan> Well, assuming linear and 24/7 computation.

18:05 <Rookie_69> 246:47 to completion, and constantly changing.

18:06 <PovAddict> that's because the progress isn't moving smoothly and linearly

18:06 * CoderForLife nods - sounds reasonable

18:10 * Rookie_69 wonders why his artificial-smoke-flavoured-water-injected bacon-ish meat is boiling instead of frying...

18:10 <CoderForLife> microwaves?

18:12 <Rookie_69> Maybe a lack thereof.

18:12 <CoderForLife> macrowaves?

18:12 <MTughan> Waves of VBA code?

18:13 <KathrynM> lol  message_die() was called multiple times. This isn't supposed to happen. Was message_die() used in page_tail.php?

18:13 <KathrynM> Nice message :)

18:14 <PovAddict> whur

18:14 <CoderForLife> hello KathrynM

18:14 <KathrynM> on a phpBB forum

18:15 <KathrynM> hello CoderForLife

18:17 * CoderForLife nods and smiles

18:24 * PovAddict puts NASA TV on a screen corner

18:25 <MTughan> http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html Launch just before 8PM EST, an hour and a half.

18:25 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/2paqc> (at www.nasa.gov)

18:25 * PovAddict needs a new desktop background

18:27 <Rookie_69> backgrounds suck resources... I don't use them.

18:27 <MTughan> You use black?

18:27 <PovAddict> backgrounds are nothing compared to the other resource-sucking things I have on my desktop

18:28 <PovAddict> (like transparent windows)

18:28 <CoderForLife> it's ironic that transparent things suck resources

18:28 <Rookie_69> Well, blue.

18:29 <Rookie_69> ... but if I figured black would speed up BOINC, I would do it.

18:30 <PovAddict> if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it, does it still make a sound?

18:30 <PovAddict> if a window changes its content while it's covered by others, does it really change?

18:31 *** efc has joined #boinc

18:31 <CoderForLife> if someone asks a question...

18:31 <MTughan> Ask efc. :P

18:31 <efc> Moo

18:31 <PovAddict> if it's covered by *transparent* windows, it definitely does change, and that uses resources :)

18:33 <CoderForLife> http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,452348,00.html

18:33 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/55haht> (at www.foxnews.com)

18:35 <Rookie_69> Hmm... It appears that if you're not watching close enough, bacon can become bacon bits in a hurry.

18:35 <CoderForLife> blown to bits

18:35 * Rookie_69 munches on a bacon-bit sandwich.

18:39 *** clever has quit IRC

18:56 * CoderForLife wanders off into the darkness of the night

18:57 <wdsmia> dont get lost

18:57 * CoderForLife gets eaten by a grue

18:58 <CoderForLife> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grue_(monster)

18:58 <Romulus> Title: Grue (monster - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)

18:59 * Rookie_69 wonders if last night's horrible traffic had anything to do with a full moon...

19:00 <Rookie_69> 34 minutes to drive 6 km.

19:00 <CoderForLife> gn

19:00 <Rookie_69> gn.

19:00 <wdsmia> &nn Don

19:00 <Romulus> Live long and crunch!

19:01 <Rookie_69> \/me wonders what a grue is...

19:01 <Rookie_69> ???

19:01 <wdsmia> lol

19:01 * Rookie_69 wonders what a grue is...

19:02 <wdsmia> A grue is a fictional predator from the Zork series of interactive fiction games by Infocom

19:02 <Rookie_69> How does one get a V out of a foreward slash?

19:02 <PovAddict> it was a backslash and a forward slash

19:02 <PovAddict> \ /

19:03 <wdsmia> nix side of the brain conflicting with windows side :P

19:03 <PovAddict> lol

19:10 <Rookie_69> Countdown stuck at 9:00... that makes it easy to approximate launch time...

19:10 <PovAddict> using a linear extrapolation, that would give "never"

19:18 <Rookie_69> Do you really think they can recycle water? The Earth has only been doing it for billions of years.

19:23 * efc is an unknown cyber-hacker

19:23 <efc> &cyborg HACKER

19:23 <Romulus> efc: H.A.C.K.E.R.: Handcrafted Artificial Construct Keen on Efficient Repair

19:24 <Rookie_69> Moo.

19:24 <Rookie_69> &cyborg moo

19:24 <Romulus> Rookie_69: M.O.O.: Machine Optimized for Observation

19:30 * efc previews the next cores: Humperdink and Hoosierflat

19:30 <PovAddict> I have a LHC workunit

19:30 <PovAddict> two*

19:30 <efc> hoarder

19:31 * MTughan can tell Rookie_69 is watching the NASA launch

19:32 <Rookie_69> Nah... I'm just thirsty.

19:32 <Rookie_69> Mmm... recycled urine!

19:33 <wdsmia> better than that cheap beer you drink

19:33 <MTughan> lol

19:33 <Rookie_69> If they refracted the alcohol out of it...

19:34 <Rookie_69> 140 degrees is a lot easier to achieve than 212 degrees.

19:35 <efc> They call him Mellow Yellow.. That's right, slick

19:35 <Rookie_69> Loo.

19:35 <Rookie_69> Lol.

19:35 <Rookie_69> \Freudian slip?

19:36 * efc = Donovan

19:36 * Rookie_69 wonders if Sigmund's mother wore a Freudian slip?

19:37 <Rookie_69> Donovan?.. Not Saffron?

19:38 <efc> SHe's just mad about me

19:39 <KathrynM> <-------- w@$*

19:40 * Rookie_69 hushes Kathryn's outburst.

19:40 <efc> Red slip and the corner for you.

19:40 * Rookie_69 didn't think Donovan ever put out a second song.

19:45 <efc> He had at least one album, i've got it somewhere

19:46 <Rookie_69> Somebody left a door attached to the shuttle and they only expect a nuisance vubration???

19:46 <Rookie_69> ... vibration...

19:46 <wdsmia> its attached to the white room

19:47 <efc> his discography has its own article in the wikip

19:47 <efc> Sunshine superman, hurdy gurdy man being the other singles I've heard of

19:48 * efc heads off

19:48 *** efc has quit IRC

19:48 <MTughan> Rookie_69: There's a railing in the way too.

19:50 <Rookie_69> ... as long as it's not actually part of the shuttle... maybe...

19:51 <wdsmia> hope its not a Tim Taylor launch

19:56 <Rookie_69> I wonder how many people are about to piss themselves?

19:56 <PovAddict> &grab Rookie_69

19:56 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.

20:03 <PovAddict> &grab Rookie_69

20:03 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.

20:03 <MTughan> lol

20:04 <Rookie_69> I feel reviolated.

20:04 <MTughan> I sense another grab...

20:04 <PovAddict> nah enough

20:04 <PovAddict> ...

20:05 <PovAddict> &grab MTughan

20:05 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.

20:05 <MTughan> rofl

20:05 * Rookie_69 crunches up his buttcheeks.

20:05 <PovAddict> didn't expect that huh

20:05 <MTughan> Eh, I don't care.

20:12 * Rookie_69 happily notes the lack of an unexpected fireball upon launch...

20:12 <PovAddict> &quotegrabs random

20:12 <Romulus> PovAddict: <Rookie_69> I wonder how many people are about to !@#& themselves?

20:12 <MTughan> lol

20:13 <PovAddict> sounds even better with the censoring, as it could be a "worse" word than what he actually said

20:13 <MTughan> You know, that quote doesn't really make sense without context.

20:13 <Rookie_69> ...feces...?

20:13 <PovAddict> proving censoring is a stupid idea

20:13 <MTughan> Nope, but another "f" word...

20:13 <PovAddict> MTughan: I thought that was the whole point of the grab command

20:13 <PovAddict> making funny out-of-context quotes

20:14 <MTughan> To grab quotes, sure. But that one doesn't really make sense without knowing when it was.

20:14 <MTughan> Isn't really funny*

20:14 <Rookie_69> Censorship is a boat without a happy crew...

20:14 <PovAddict> join ##c++ and say !rq :P

20:18 * Rookie_69 rapidly sips on his last beer and aims himself at the bedroom.

20:19 <Rookie_69> NN, all.

20:19 *** Rookie_69 has quit IRC

20:20 <MTughan> I don't know, that one is better in whatever context.

20:21 <PovAddict> which one?

20:21 <Romulus> It has been said that which one is giving you headaches, PovAddict

20:22 <MTughan> * Rookie_69 rapidly sips on his last beer and aims himself at the bedroom.

21:19 <PovAddict> news of the day: PrimeGrid challenge started

21:19 <ComradeHaz> feel a bit sorry for it tbh :D

21:19 <PovAddict> a few hours later the server was so damn loaded they had to cancel the challenge

21:19 <xcam_mac> figures...

21:20 <PovAddict> and it's a brand new and powerful server... apparently the problem is elsewhere though (like the network hardware; I don't know details)

21:21 <xcam_mac> well... say hi to the rest....need to get gone
