00:31 <MTughan> Well, it's confirmed... If I try to run my Mac without the battery in, it scales the processor down to somewhere around 1GHz.

00:31 <MTughan> Max is 2GHz.

00:39 <zombie67> what??

00:39 <zombie67> I do that all the time with mine

00:39 <zombie67> no decrease

00:40 <MTughan> Benchmarks: 1929/4300 compared to 956/2109.

00:43 <zombie67> check your power settings

00:43 <MTughan> There's nothing about CPU.

01:25 <MTughan> 'lo TM

01:25 <Tank_Master> hey

01:25 <MTughan> So, when's Nehalem released? :P

01:25 <Tank_Master> newegg already has them

01:26 <Tank_Master> but tomorrow (monday)

01:26 *** infinisoft has quit IRC

01:26 <MTughan> Hmm, Newegg didn't have them last I checked, which I think was Saturday.

01:27 <Tank_Master> maybe it was that other one

01:27 <Tank_Master> tiger?

01:27 <Tank_Master> direct

01:27 <MTughan> Haven't checked TigerDirect.

01:27 <MTughan> Newegg has them now.

01:27 <MTughan> Although just .com, not .ca.

01:28 <Tank_Master> ahh

01:28 <Tank_Master> they also have mobos

01:28 <MTughan> F you TigerDirect...

01:28 <MTughan> They "absolutely" require JS, although I'm sure I could navigate their site without it.

01:29 <MTughan> Anyway, TigerDirect has them too.

01:29 * efc turns off JS so he can downl, err, navigate better

01:29 <MTughan> efc: NoScript helps.

01:30 <Tank_Master> ya

01:31 <MTughan> Unfortunately, the only quote I seem to be able to get for Canadian pricing is at a retailer I don't know that I'd go to for processors. They have it for $394 CDN.

01:31 <MTughan> NCIX doesn't have anything up yet either.

01:32 <Tank_Master> huh

01:32 <MTughan> has them for $462... Cheapest, my ass.

01:33 <Tank_Master> lol

01:33 <Tank_Master> that is a bit spendy

01:33 <MTughan> Quite.

01:33 <MTughan> I think it'd be cheaper to order from a US retailer and bear the additional shipping and customs.

01:33 <Tank_Master> beter come with the new thermaltake typhoon 14 (140mm fan)

01:34 <MTughan> has $320 for the i7 920.

01:34 <Tank_Master> if its gonna be almost $500

01:34 <Tank_Master> 320 is good

01:34 <MTughan> I believe it's basically the MSRP.

01:34 <MTughan> $284 is the per 1000 price.

01:35 <MTughan> "The Intel sales embargo was lifted at one minute after midnight on 16 November in Tokyo, and stores stayed open to start selling at that time."

01:35 <Tank_Master> lol

01:36 <Tank_Master> gee, dont see that around here

01:37 <MTughan> Nope.

01:37 <MTughan> But maybe when I finish university, I should try and get a job in Asia. :P

01:38 <MTughan> Hmm... I could always get KathrynM to get some. Think she'd know where?

01:38 <Tank_Master> hehe

01:38 <Tank_Master> maybe kathryn_ does

01:38 <MTughan> Ah... Of course, I would have figured that out had I tried using Tab.

01:39 <MTughan> Well, I don't really have any hard money at this point anyway. :(

01:41 <Tank_Master> yeah

01:41 <Tank_Master> I need to sell off my comps

01:41 <Tank_Master> but I think ill wait till right after thx giving

01:41 <MTughan> Hmm... Looks like an AMD fan boy tried sabotaging the Core i7 article. 4 edits, all deflamatory.

01:41 <MTughan> defamatory*\

01:42 <MTughan> Damn you baskslash...

01:42 <Tank_Master> I hear nvidia will be droping proces soon

01:42 <Tank_Master> to compleate againce AMD

01:42 <MTughan> Over the whole line? Nice.

01:42 <MTughan> Cheaper for CUDA and BOINC. :D

01:42 <Tank_Master> the 9xxx series and "some" 200

01:42 <Tank_Master> yeah

01:42 <Tank_Master> thats my thought

01:43 <MTughan> At this point, if I go with Nvidia graphics, it'll be either a 9800GTX(+) or a GTX 260.

01:44 <MTughan> IIRC, even the 9800GTX isn't that expensive. That's the highest end single GPU 9xxx series card.

01:44 <Tank_Master> Im going with the 260

01:44 <MTughan> Yeah, 260 preferred here. Determinator will be cash resources.

01:45 <Tank_Master> has some newer capibilities for games

01:45 <MTughan> $250 for a 9800GTX+.

01:45 <Tank_Master> true

01:45 <MTughan> Now the big thing... If I have enough cash, which takes priority? Core i7 or GTX 260?

01:46 <Tank_Master> well, the 260 works on any PCI-E 16x

01:46 <Tank_Master> the i7 would requier new mobo and ram

01:47 <MTughan> No, what I'm saying is: if I have enough money to actually go to Core i7, should I bother? If I have enough money to do both i7 and 260, the point is moot, but there's that range in between the two.

01:48 <Tank_Master> the I7 performs better and consumes less power

01:48 <MTughan> And besides, I'm going to need a new MB and RAM at this upgrade anyway, whether I go to 775 or 1366.

01:48 <Tank_Master> also o/c easier :D

01:48 <MTughan> Heh.

01:49 <MTughan> Right now, my current MB is a socket 478.

01:49 <Tank_Master> lol

01:49 <Tank_Master> time to upgrade

01:49 <MTughan> Quite.

01:49 <Tank_Master> then either will blow what you have away

01:50 <MTughan> Yeah... Big step, from a P4 HT to a true quad-core, maybe even with improved HT.

01:50 <MTughan> And I thought the duals were fast... :D

01:50 <Tank_Master> hehe

01:50 <Tank_Master> itll be awsome to see 6 threads at once

01:50 <Tank_Master> 8*

01:50 <MTughan> You mean 8?

01:50 <MTughan> Yeah...

01:50 <Tank_Master> me typing with no lite on..

01:50 <Tank_Master> bad idea

01:51 <MTughan> Same here. One difference.

01:51 <MTughan> Keyboard backlighting.

01:51 <Tank_Master> that would be handy

01:51 <Tank_Master> can you turn it off?

01:51 <MTughan> Yeah.

01:51 <Tank_Master> good

01:51 <Tank_Master> I wouldnt be able to sleep with it on

01:51 <Tank_Master> :D

01:51 <MTughan> Nice... BFG GTX 260 for $301.

01:52 <MTughan> Keyboard:

01:52 * Tank_Master drools

01:52 <Romulus> <> (at

01:52 <MTughan> PovAddict is envious of it. :P

01:52 <Tank_Master> the keyboard?

01:52 <MTughan> Yeah.

01:53 <Tank_Master> it come with a combo mouse?

01:53 <MTughan> Nope, just the KB.

01:53 <Tank_Master> huh

01:53 <Tank_Master> im low on ports as it is

01:54 <Tank_Master> 3 external USB drives, printer, keyboard/mouse, extender cable to plug things in from the front...

01:54 <MTughan> <PovAddict> two laptops, a big screen, a f*cking G15 keyboard >:(, a mouse with lots of buttons

01:55 <Tank_Master> my mouse has lots of buttons

01:55 <Tank_Master> handy for games

01:55 <MTughan> Don't do much gaming with it, but they are useful.

01:55 <MTughan> What mouse?

01:55 <Tank_Master> in unreal tournament, honking the horn while next to a bot on your team tells it to get in

01:55 <Tank_Master> mx1000

01:56 <Tank_Master> first lazer mouse

01:56 <Tank_Master> so having a button on the mouse to honk the horn is handy

01:56 <MTughan> I think mine might actually be basically an evolution of yours then... Logitech G5.

01:57 <Tank_Master> yeah

01:57 <Tank_Master> I think it is

01:57 <MTughan> Wouldn't surprise me.

01:58 <MTughan> Anyway...

01:58 <Romulus> <> (at

01:58 <MTughan> Back on video cards. Seems in short supply, but damn nice price.

01:58 <Tank_Master> gaa

01:58 <Tank_Master> I want 2

01:58 <Tank_Master> :P

01:58 <Tank_Master> I like BFG

01:58 <MTughan> Hmm... Two would be just about $50 more than a GTX 280, right?

01:58 <Tank_Master> and more crunching power

01:59 <MTughan> Yep, $50.

01:59 <Tank_Master> wonder if they would ship to me

01:59 <MTughan> $540 for GTX 280.

01:59 <Tank_Master> :P

01:59 <MTughan> Dunno that Canada Computers would, but I'm sure others will...

02:00 *** zombie67 has left #boinc

02:00 <MTughan> Actually, they probably would send to the US.

02:02 <MTughan> Uh... Tank_Master? Forget Canada Computers.

02:02 <Romulus> <> (at

02:02 <Tank_Master> ...

02:02 <Tank_Master> ....

02:02 * Tank_Master cant think of anything to say

02:03 <MTughan> lol

02:03 <Tank_Master> :P

02:03 <MTughan> $230 for a GTX 260... That's f***ing awesome.

02:04 <MTughan> Lowest price I can get for it right now seems to be $282.

02:06 <Tank_Master> bfg 260 OC for $280 with farcry 2

02:06 <Tank_Master> at newegg

02:06 <MTughan> That's still a great price.

02:06 <Tank_Master> but that MSI is defently a better deal

02:07 <Tank_Master> the 280 for $375 after mail-in

02:07 <Tank_Master> err 360

02:08 <Tank_Master>

02:08 <Romulus> <> (at

02:08 <MTughan> $282 is the cheapest I can get any GTX 260 anywhere. However, at Canada Computers, I can buy it retail, so I save shipping and some risks.

02:08 <MTughan> $18 less at Newegg, but saving shipping... Probably the better deal.

02:09 <MTughan> Dang, that's a nice rebate...

02:09 <Tank_Master> lol

02:09 <Tank_Master> limit 99 per customer

02:09 <MTughan> Hehe... Imagine 99 of those crunching PS3GRID?

02:10 <Tank_Master> hehe

02:10 <MTughan> Actually no, I can't imagine that... Holy sh*t, that's a lot of power.

02:10 <Tank_Master> yeah

02:12 <Tank_Master> yeah it is

02:12 <MTughan> "Cons: is slightly warm" xD

02:13 <Tank_Master> what, 1m+ RAC?

02:13 <efc> thats what the 400 amp service in our house is for

02:13 <MTughan> Hmm... One card could do about 15,000RAC?

02:13 <MTughan> Or is that high?

02:13 <Tank_Master> thought it was closer to 12k

02:13 <Tank_Master> but I dont know

02:13 <Tank_Master> oh, zombie has one

02:14 <MTughan> Could be. Means anywhere from 1.2 to 1.5 million RAC for 99 of them. xD

02:15 *** efc has quit IRC

02:15 <Tank_Master> zombie's RAC is onlt 10K

02:15 <Tank_Master> only*

02:16 <Tank_Master> but he probbaly isnt dedicating a core ti the GPU app

02:16 <Tank_Master> just runing stock

02:16 <MTughan> Dedicating a core?

02:17 <Tank_Master> foring BOINC to run on just 3 cores, so the 4th is used only by the GPU app

02:17 <MTughan> Why is that?

02:17 <Tank_Master> on windows, the gou app takes about 80% of it

02:17 <Tank_Master> of one core

02:17 <MTughan> Hmm... Something to think about, but that should be okay.

02:18 <Tank_Master> they blame windows for ir, but I dont think its windows

02:18 <Tank_Master> they had an app earlier that only took 2-5%

02:18 <MTughan> Know how the Linux app performs?

02:18 <Tank_Master> takes onlu 1-3% of a core

02:19 <Tank_Master> but I think they are close to the same performance if you dedicate a core in windows

02:19 <MTughan> That also means one less core for CPU only crunching though.

02:20 <Tank_Master> the improved speed in the GPU app makes up for it

02:20 <Tank_Master> credit wise

12:39 <MTughan_> Tank_Master: I figured out the higher Canadian prices, as all Canadian retailers sell i7 920 for about $385...

12:40 <MTughan_> &currency convert 320 USD to CAD

12:40 <Romulus> MTughan_: 320.00 usd = 388.48 cad

12:40 <Tank_Master> ahh

12:40 <Tank_Master> doesnt look so bad then :P

12:40 <MTughan_> Of course it does! How long were we around a 1:1 rate?

12:40 <MTughan_> About 8 months. Only recently has it changed.

12:41 <Tank_Master> how long have the denicrats been in power in the congress?

12:41 <MTughan_> Shorter than the rate skyrocketing.

12:42 <MTughan_> You can use this:

12:42 <Romulus> Title: Free Forex Charts (at

12:43 <MTughan_> Started rising around the beginning of October.

12:46 <Tank_Master> ewww, java

12:47 <PovAddict> applets?

12:47 <Tank_Master> that page uses java

12:47 <MTughan_> Yeah.

12:47 <Tank_Master> java for windows is crap

12:47 <MTughan_> Are there any other places you can do it? I haven't found any.

12:47 <MTughan_> Tank_Master: I'm currently on XP.

12:48 <Tank_Master> wasnt untill a few monthas ago it was finally compatible with vista

12:48 <MTughan_> That's Microsoft's fault.

12:48 <Tank_Master> before that, every time you ran it, it UI would go into compatibility mode and youd loose the areo efects

12:48 <Tank_Master> no its not

12:49 <Tank_Master> its not MS's fault it took sun 3 years to update their product to be compatible with the latest mainstream OS

12:49 <MTughan_> 3 years? It's been that long?

12:50 <PovAddict> it's MSs fault that Java needed an update in the first place

12:50 <PovAddict> :)

12:50 <PovAddict> (ie. Vista broke it)

12:50 <Tank_Master> heh

12:50 <Tank_Master> so its MS's failt they broke bad programming?

12:50 <Tank_Master> riigghhtt

12:50 <MTughan_> RTM was just over two years ago. Unless you mean the developer builds.

12:51 <Tank_Master> itll be 3 years in jan

17:10 <Romulus> Title: Big particle collider repairs to cost $21 million - LHC- (at

17:10 <PovAddict> ugh don't make it worse}

17:10 <CoderForLife> and I'm sorry you have one

17:10 <PovAddict> 21 million?

17:11 <PovAddict> well

17:11 <CoderForLife> 21 million, and "June"

17:11 <PovAddict> think 21 million is nothing compared to the total cost

17:11 <PovAddict> 10 billion

17:11 <CoderForLife> that's 21 million in repairs after 9 days

17:11 <PovAddict> I think I have about 1 thousand in savings, wonder how much they can repair with that :)

17:11 <CoderForLife> one wire
