20:27 * Rookie_69 is listening to country music coming through wall from next apartment.
20:31 <Rookie_69> Drowning it out with some ELO...
20:33 <MTughan> &math 7 / 0.29
20:33 <Romulus> MTughan: 24.1379310345
20:36 <Soul_keeper> multiplying by 3 gives same as dividing by 1/3rd :)
20:36 <MTughan> I was figuring out the running time of a task. Estimated 7 hours at 29% done.
20:36 <Soul_keeper> i guess i forgot my math
20:36 <MTughan> &math 1 / 0.29
20:36 <Romulus> MTughan: 3.44827586207
20:37 <MTughan> I don't particularly want to multiply by that number.
20:37 <Soul_keeper> nm
20:46 <PovAddict> random fact: on most CPUs, multiplying by reciprocal is faster than dividing
20:46 <PovAddict> prolly only relevant if you're writing in assembler though
20:47 <MTughan> What if you have to calculate the reciprocal though?
20:47 <PovAddict> <MTughan> I've seen x.x.x.0. <- I don't think that's possible, .0 represents "whole network"
20:47 <MTughan> I'm pretty sure I've seen that.
20:48 <PovAddict> <MTughan> Nickuwo: BTW, I'm still checking the Ramsey forum from time to time. I noticed yesterday that a lot of the posts were marked as unread, even though they hadn't been.
20:48 <PovAddict> forum code bug, not nickuwo's fault... I see it a lot on boinc dev forums
20:48 <PovAddict> sucks
20:48 <efc> in integer math, it still makes a fairly big difference
20:48 <efc> floating point too usually
20:49 <efc> mult is usually around 5 cycles in fp, divide around 25-30
20:49 <MTughan> If you're doing integer division and don't care about a remainder or decimal, you can do bit-shifts.
20:58 <efc> another famous trick is the bitwise AND instead of modulo power-of-two
21:01 <MTughan> efc: What I was saying before is if the divisor is a variable, to do multiplication, you still have to use division to get the reciprocal. Isn't that just wasteful in the steps, as you're basically adding a multiplication?
21:02 <MTughan> y = z / x opposed to w = 1/x; y = z * w.
21:03 <MTughan> Also, how does y = x / 5 compare to y = 0.2 * x?
21:03 <Tank_Master> PovAddict: fyi - Intel has doubleed the divisor speed in the 45nm core2
21:05 <MTughan> Ouch... In new MW code: sqrt(2*pi), where pi is a #define to a constant.
21:05 <PovAddict> MTughan: it's faster if the number you divide by is a constant and you can calculate the reciprocal at compile time
21:06 <PovAddict> C++0x constexpr ftw
21:06 <MTughan> Actually, the whole line sucks... coeff = 1 / (stdev * sqrt(2*pi)); Both pi and stdev are constants.
21:08 <MTughan> Can compilers evaluate the sqrt() function and substitute its value if the arguments are constants?
21:11 <Soul_keeper> probably ...
21:11 <efc> yes, it only makes sense if that reciprocal is being reused
21:11 <Soul_keeper> might depend on the compiler
21:12 <efc> I don't think they are that smart, about the swrt
21:13 <efc> unless its been specifically optimized (and that would be a bit of a hack)
21:13 <MTughan> Hmm... Also, what's faster? sqrt(x) or pow(x, 0.5)?
21:13 <MTughan> Depends on the implementation?
21:13 <efc> Yeah good question, you'd have to measure. I'd suspect sqrt is.
21:14 <efc> Since pow is more general..
21:14 <MTughan> Makes sense.
21:15 <efc> sqrt often has its own instruction, but then pow probably does too.
21:15 <MTughan> I'm thinking enabling some SSEx options might help... From what I see, none of the -Os are used, let alone SSE/Altivec.
21:17 <Soul_keeper> yeah they've added a lot of that stuff over the last few sse versions i believe
21:18 <efc> there's a regular fp sqrt on intel, and in SSE too I think

21:28 <Soul_keeper> http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=13502 cat brains to be simulated by ibm cool
21:29 <PovAddict> i can has simulation?
21:29 <MTughan> Yep, same story was posted on AI's forum, but from the BBC: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7740484.stm
21:32 <Soul_keeper> they can apparently grow frog eyes now too ...
21:32 <efc> Frog eyes, cat brains, these are dangerous times
21:32 <Soul_keeper> lol
21:32 <MTughan> I think they're looking into printing human hearts too.
21:33 <Soul_keeper> the way they did it could be great for unborn babies, if they see a birth defect could be repaired
21:33 <Soul_keeper> life if the notice you don't have an arm, eye, leg, etc.
21:34 <Soul_keeper> like*
21:34 <Soul_keeper> just throw some stem cells on it :)
21:35 <MTughan> Wow... Turning on and off a small fan is making the speakers crackle.
21:36 <efc> They did a hand transplant the other day too
21:36 <efc> But there is not enough money to pay for stuff like this
21:38 <Rookie_69> There's always enough money... It's just that we don't have it.
21:43 <Soul_keeper> you can buy an artificial heart from some french company for like 100K now ...
21:44 <PovAddict> sometimes I think they aren't letting natural selection do its job
21:44 <PovAddict> but that's kind of a controversial topic
21:44 <MTughan> PovAddict: Natural selection is inhumane! :P
21:45 <PovAddict> bash quote
21:45 <MTughan> lol
21:45 <PovAddict> "remove all warning labels and let the problem solve itself"
21:46 <MTughan> I'm currently peeling dried marshmallow off my shoe... Rather disgusting.

22:48 <MTughan> rofl...
22:49 <efc> Huh?
22:49 <efc> Oh
22:53 <MTughan> How the heck did they mess that one up?
22:54 <Soul_keeper> probably a government employee :)
22:54 <MTughan> lol
22:55 <Soul_keeper> i just searched stupid on google images
22:55 <MTughan> o_O http://www.saao.ac.za/~wpk/gallery/signs/no_parking.jpg
22:56 <Soul_keeper> lol
22:57 <MTughan> Wouldn't it take more time to put it there than drape it overtop?
22:57 <Soul_keeper> yeah but it's not as fun :)
22:57 <MTughan> Point.
