00:00 <Romulus> Title: Crazy Image: Fel (at

00:02 <Soul_keeper>   found a puzzle for you MTughan

00:02 <Romulus> Title: Crazy Image: Puzzle (at

00:03 <MTughan> Saw that one earlier... I've read why it happens before, but I don't remember it now.

00:06 <Soul_keeper>   best one yet, i'm retiring

00:06 <Romulus> <> (at

00:06 <Soul_keeper> too many images for one night :)

00:07 <MTughan> Hehe....

00:07 <Romulus> Title: Crazy Image: Kylning (at

00:08 <MTughan> That's not actually that bad an idea, however crazy it looks.

00:59 *** quail_linux is now known as quail

01:06 <Tank_Master> mt - what about that link?

01:06 <Tank_Master> MTughan

01:06 <MTughan> Win2K license picture. :P

01:06 <MTughan> I thought you could use it.

01:06 <Tank_Master> yeah, what about it? that its got the code?

01:07 <Tank_Master> no, I havent even ran XP in a year now

01:07 <MTughan> Nevermind then.

01:08 <Tank_Master> no worries ;)

01:09 <Tank_Master> I tend to look farward, not back

01:09 <MTughan> I do have one hardware question though: How do you think an AMD Phenom 9950 Black would perform?

01:09 <Tank_Master> good

01:09 <MTughan> Compared to a Core 2 Quad that is.

01:09 <Tank_Master> not as well as an intel quad, but still rather good

01:10 <Tank_Master> I dont know about againce an i7 though

01:10 <MTughan> Because an AMD setup with a Nvidia chipset and integrated GPU would cost me about $200-250 less.

01:10 <Tank_Master> I know againce the core, Rieselsieve type math tended to do batter on AMD

01:11 <Tank_Master> better*

01:11 <MTughan> I think that's what Chuck has been saying: AMDs are better at fp, while Intels are better at int.

01:11 <Tank_Master> depends on the FP

01:12 <Tank_Master> its not quite thas easy as chuck put it

01:12 <Tank_Master> if the retiens running are a fewMB, the core will easly win do tot he larger cache

01:12 <Tank_Master> to the*

01:13 <Tank_Master> but AMD did just release a new quad with larger cache, wich will even that out

01:13 <MTughan> I think it's only in the Opteron package though, which is more expensive.

01:13 <MTughan> At least for now.

01:13 <Tank_Master> ahh, ok

01:13 <Tank_Master> yeah, it owuldnt supprise me if they went to all markets eventually

01:14 <Tank_Master> espually with the i7 now out

01:14 <MTughan> Yeah. IIRC, it's the Shanghai core built at 45nm.

01:14 <Tank_Master> it is

01:51 *** infinisoft has quit IRC

01:51 <Soul_keeper> deneb is the code name for the desktop, shanghai for the server    but they'll market them as phenom 3  or something

01:59 <MTughan> Yeah... Deneb for Phenom 3 I think. There is a Deneb FX too.

02:02 *** Eythan has quit IRC

02:11 *** efc3 has joined #boinc

02:14 <efc3> I guess I can chunk a 14" vga monitor..

02:14 <efc3> unless anyone wants one

02:15 <Tank_Master> might not be bad for baic use

02:15 <Tank_Master> though its probably a CRT, huh?

02:15 <MTughan> Not for me, thanks.

02:15 <efc3> Yeah, i think its a 640x480

02:16 <efc3> I've got another one thats not working right but it has some sentimental value :)

02:16 <Tank_Master> lol

02:16 <MTughan> Tank_Master: I think AMD is trying to copy Intel... Next set of Phenoms have the model numbers of 920 and 940.

02:16 <Tank_Master> dont uyou have that?

02:16 <Tank_Master> HAHA

02:16 <Tank_Master> nice

02:17 <Tank_Master> first intel copies AMD in the chip design, then AMD copies intel in the name of it

02:17 <Tank_Master> :P

02:17 <MTughan> Secret agreement? :P

02:17 <Tank_Master> hehe

02:17 <Tank_Master> conspericy therists would say so

02:17 <Soul_keeper> amd pays intel to use x86 cause they got the patents

02:17 <MTughan> Lucky for you, I ain't.

02:18 <Tank_Master> amd doesnt pay intel

02:18 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: No, AMD sued Intel for that one.

02:18 <Tank_Master> the two have a cross licence agreenmnet

02:18 <Tank_Master> sued to copy the name?

02:18 <Soul_keeper> basically amd still pays them

02:18 <MTughan> No, for x86.

02:18 <Tank_Master> ahh

02:18 <Tank_Master> probably where the corss agrenment was born

02:19 <MTughan> Last paragraph in History.

02:19 <Romulus> Title: AMD v. Intel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at

02:20 <Soul_keeper> don't forget see/mmx/etc.  i'm sure intel collects money for anyone that uses those

02:20 <Tank_Master> cept AMD

02:21 <Tank_Master> they traded it for some other patents

02:22 <MTughan> Reference 4 on that page too has a timeline of Intel and AMD. Not bad.

02:24 <Tank_Master> wonder where we would be had IBM not been split up

02:25 <efc3> that monitor is making a nasty popping noise

02:26 <Tank_Master> not a good sign

02:26 *** efc has quit IRC

02:28 <Tank_Master> sounds like AMD keep complaining :P

02:29 <Tank_Master> whiny child

02:29 <MTughan> Of course. Although, apparently their stock was actually climbing quite steadily up until a couple years ago.

02:29 <MTughan> With the purchase of ATI.

02:29 <Tank_Master> yeah

02:31 <Soul_keeper> they are worth much less now than they payed for ATI

02:32 <MTughan> rofl... On the Blackberry Storm compared to the iPhone, "RIM just one-upped the founders, and Apple knows that." xD

02:32 <Tank_Master> opefully they can make up for it at some point

02:32 <Tank_Master> hope*

02:33 <efc3> Something shorting in the monitor I guess, maybe a tin whisker.. out it goes

02:33 <Tank_Master> ouch

02:33 <Tank_Master> could always drop it off the side of a building

02:34 <Tank_Master> yoyo[RKN]!

02:34 <Tank_Master> wb

02:34 <Soul_keeper> AMD payed 5.4 billion for ATI,  AMD now has a market cap of about 1.2 billion

02:35 <yoyo[RKN]> moin Tank_Master, now I'm here, you can go and sleep ;)

02:35 <Tank_Master> yeah

02:35 <MTughan> You think he's late? I'm three hours ahead of him.

02:35 <Tank_Master> though its only 23:30

02:35 <Tank_Master> hehe

02:35 <MTughan> And holy crap, it's 2:30AM...

02:35 <yoyo[RKN]> ui

02:36 <yoyo[RKN]> 8:30am here

02:36 <MTughan> Uh... No, I don't have a UI.

02:36 <efc3> Only 2:30. the night is middle aged

02:37 <Tank_Master> how can you see w/o a UI?

02:38 <MTughan> I meant myself physically. I would hope my computer has a UI...

02:38 <MTughan> Or maybe I'm just visualizing stuff in my head.

02:38 <Tank_Master> lol

02:44 <yoyo[RKN]> ogr-ng news: In other news, we are already more than 10% complete with OGR-26 since

02:44 <yoyo[RKN]> we started it almost one month ago!  We may finish the project in

02:44 <yoyo[RKN]> early 2009 at this rate.  You can view the OGR-26 progress at:

02:45 <yoyo[RKN]> ogr25 has finished one month ago

02:45 <Tank_Master> yeah, shush :P

02:46 <yoyo[RKN]> and some more news: We're working on updates for some of the remaining platforms (like

02:46 <yoyo[RKN]> NetBSD and OpenBSD) plus some exciting new ones (like nVidia CUDA), so

02:46 <yoyo[RKN]> look forward to future announcements.

02:46 <Tank_Master> cuda I can get in on

02:47 <MTughan> Yeah, we know...

02:47 <yoyo[RKN]> there is currently no beta client released for ogr-ng

02:47 <Tank_Master> no ogering for cuds?

12:11 <quail> 03:41:31 Monday, November 24 2008 here

12:11 <Rookie_69> What?.. No bread?

12:12 *** [RKN]frost has joined #boinc

12:12 <quail> Rookie_69: sandwich normally made with bread

12:12 <Rookie_69> That's why I asked...

12:13 <quail> Rookie_69: and I damn enjoyed it

12:14 <Rookie_69> And you should.

12:14 <quail> it first think I have eaten in cople days

12:14 <Tank_Master> o.0?

12:15 <Rookie_69> Rule *1... Eat something every day.

12:15 * quail has had to much work on, and have been running on caffeine

12:15 <Rookie_69> ...#...

12:16 <quail> and in the midst of working I have rebuild a firewall / gateway / router from the ground up

12:16 <Rookie_69> Rule #2... Wash it down with something tasty whenever possible.

12:17 <quail> brewed coffee

12:17 *** siofwolves has joined #boinc

12:18 * quail glad not have to work today tho

12:18 <quail> by about lunch time I can get some sleep

12:18 <Rookie_69> No work on a monday? Must be heaven.

12:19 <quail> Rookie_69: it called self employment

12:19 <PovAddict> monday?

12:19 <quail> and I have worked all weekend

12:19 <Rookie_69> Monday is almost eleven hours away here, so not an issue yet.

12:21 <Rookie_69> I'm boiling water for whatever pasta I can find to make today's meal... I won't call it lunch or supper or dinner, It's just Meal.

12:23 <quail> Rookie_69: you know what I do when know it going to be hard time, live on sandwiches

12:24 <quail> intern I save money on the cooking and still get a good feed

12:24 <Rookie_69> Sandwiches are my primary source of nutrition... I try to do something else once in a while.

12:25 <Tank_Master> pizza?

12:25 <Romulus> hmm... pizza is the cure for a long day at the rugrat factory, Tank_Master

12:25 <quail> Tank_Master: I must admit it one thing I fire up the oven for once a week

12:26 <quail> Tank_Master: home made pizzas ftw

12:26 <Tank_Master> haha

12:26 <Tank_Master> same here

12:26 <Tank_Master> every saterday

12:26 <Rookie_69> Mmm... Pasta boiled with basil... smells yummy.

12:26 <Tank_Master> make the dough even

12:27 <quail> Tank_Master: I used pita bread for the bases for my pizzas

12:27 <Rookie_69> I sometimes cheat and load up a frozen pizza.

12:27 <Tank_Master> heh

12:27 <Tank_Master> thats blashfamy

12:27 * Rookie_69 hides his head in shame.

12:28 <quail> most my pizza toppings I can use on sandwiches

12:28 <Tank_Master> as you should

12:28 <Tank_Master> :P

12:28 <quail> Tank_Master: you hard arse

12:28 <quail> :-P

12:28 <Tank_Master> mine is just peporoni, olives, cheese, and sause

12:29 <Rookie_69> ... and more cheese.

12:29 <Tank_Master> :)

12:29 <Tank_Master> never can have enough cheese

12:30 <Tank_Master> ill bbl

12:31 <MTughan> Mmm, cheese...

12:31 <Rookie_69> I had a roommate of Italian descent in the army once who used to order an olive pizza with extra olives... Maybe he was Greek...

12:31 * quail pizza is peporoni, ham, olives, mushrooms, tomato, capsicum, onion, pineapple, cheese, sauce, garlic

12:32 <Rookie_69> Leave out the dessert toppings...

12:32 <MTughan> Sounds good to me... Except the mushrooms.

12:33 * Rookie_69 ducks

12:33 <Rookie_69> Fungi are good...

12:33 <quail> Rookie_69: hear hear

12:33 <Rookie_69> pineapple belongs on ice cream.

12:34 <MTughan> No way, pineapple is full of flavour.

12:34 <PovAddict> ice cream belongs on my mouth

12:34 <PovAddict> wonder if we have any left

12:35 <Rookie_69> Don't put ice cream on your pizza... It'll only melt.

12:35 <quail> hehe

12:38 <Rookie_69> I wish I had more cheese... Most of today's meal was supposed to go into a lasagna, but I got hungry.

12:39 <Rookie_69> Note to self... make more sauce.

12:41 <quail> I am getting made hungry again

12:42 <Rookie_69> Note to self... Buy more cheese.

12:43 <Rookie_69> Note to self... Get a better paying job...

12:43 <quail> note to self... only have sandwich makings

13:05 <quail> Rookie_69: what I was say is my root directory is using that a mount space and have that many packages installled

13:08 <quail> Rookie_69: if you like to know more about linux just ask

13:08 <quail> :-)

13:08 * Rookie_69 doesn't know how his one linux box works and isn't that interested.

13:09 <quail> ah

13:09 <Rookie_69> ... at least today...

13:09 <quail> my networks here are all linux

13:10 <quail> some the clients that connect tho are not

13:10 <quail> but they not mine

13:10 <quail> I only use linux

13:13 <Rookie_69> I just rebooted linux box yesterday... I could have used some help with my password.

13:13 <quail> oh

13:14 <Rookie_69> As long as I don't have to update anything, it should be fine.

13:15 <quail> Rookie_69: you only just have to ask for help

13:15 <Rookie_69> ... or at least usable.

13:16 <Rookie_69> Note to self... Bug Quail.

13:18 <quail> ;-)

13:19 <Rookie_69> I used my old army service number as a password and forgot it... That was mistake number one.

13:19 <quail> and if I am not around I sure there a couple others to help, ie PovAddict

13:20 <MTughan> Single user mode can work too.

13:20 <PovAddict> I've seen systems where entering single user mode requests your root password

13:20 <MTughan> Linux system or non-Linux?

13:20 <MTughan> systems*

13:20 <PovAddict> Linux

13:20 <PovAddict> depends on distro and configuration...

13:21 <MTughan> Interesting.

13:24 <Rookie_69> Linux box says No updates available... I wonder if that's because I haven't updated in a year or three.

13:24 <PovAddict> or because they don't give updates anymore

13:25 <quail> MTughan: PovAddict is right there, but there ways around that too

13:25 <PovAddict> like, I don't think you can get Windows Updates for NT4.0 anymore

13:25 <MTughan> IIRC, Win2K is the oldest supported version.

13:25 <PovAddict> IIRC, there was much complaining when 98 stopped getting support, so M$ had to extend it

13:25 <PovAddict> because there were *that* many people still using it

13:25 <MTughan> I can believe that.

13:26 <MTughan> It worked, people were familiar, why mess with something stable?

13:26 <MTughan> My grandmother was still using 98 up until about a year and a half ago.

13:26 <PovAddict> they should have made an OS identical to 98 but NT-based

13:26 <MTughan> It looks or functionality?

13:26 <MTughan> In*, damn it...

13:27 <PovAddict> in looks and user-visible functionality

13:27 <PovAddict> Windows 2000 wasn't really for home users, and Windows XP changed too many things compared to 98

13:27 <MTughan> Yeah, makes sense. The Classic look in XP doesn't quite get there.

16:40 <PovAddict> I don't see the problem

16:40 <PovAddict> or do you get it in a log file?

16:40 <jackygrahamez> hmm I think I see it now. I'm setting up a project for someone and sharing the same server

16:40 <jackygrahamez> just for demonstration purposes

16:41 <PovAddict> I don't see the error message you mentioned

16:41 *** saenger has quit IRC

16:42 <jackygrahamez> Its not loading some of the configurations

16:42 <jackygrahamez> on the webpages

16:42 <PovAddict> also, you have a master URL mess :)

16:42 <jackygrahamez> like the forums are there, but their are no grids

16:42 <jackygrahamez> I was wondering

16:43 <PovAddict> and are the two working URLs, but the master URL is configured as

16:43 <PovAddict> it's loading the CSS from

16:43 <PovAddict> which doesn't exist

16:44 <PovAddict> you need to fix the master URL in config.xml

16:45 <PovAddict> now it's using http://www.mothershipathome.orgwhite.css :)

16:45 <PovAddict> you need the final slash

16:54 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

16:54 <jackygrahamez> How about now?

16:55 <jackygrahamez> I did an apache restart

16:55 <jackygrahamez> still not loading things

16:56 <PovAddict> wtf

16:57 <PovAddict> is not a plain domain name, that's the problem

16:57 <PovAddict> it uses a frameset to redirect you to the real IP address

16:57 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

16:57 <PovAddict> that works only for pages... not for anything else like stylesheets

16:59 *** [RKN]frost has quit IRC

16:59 <jackygrahamez> ok so we should move the domain name over to our dns then? Not forward?

16:59 <PovAddict> yes, it has to be a real dns

16:59 <PovAddict> the browser is requesting a CSS and is getting HTML instead (with a frame)

17:00 <jackygrahamez> ok thanks, I wanted to do that but we were rushing

17:00 <PovAddict> meanwhile, you could try changing the master URL to yours

18:17 <MTughan> Nice... Enabling SSE2 and optimizations in MW's app reduce crunch time from 20m13s to 16m41s. No code changes.

18:22 <MTughan> And I've already found a few places where I could probably optimize the code somewhat.

18:23 <MTughan> CoderForLife: Don't suppose you could send some pizza over here? I haven't had anything to eat today and I just came back from badminton... :P

22:05 <ComradeHaz> Hi guys, is there a way to schedule different CPU usages for different times of day for the linux client?

22:07 <MTughan> Not in the BOINC client itself I think. It should be possible to use cron jobs to do it, but I think it's basically all or nothing.

22:08 <ComradeHaz> hmm, how would on go about using cron jobs?

22:08 <ComradeHaz> oh, to modify the script and reload?

22:08 <ComradeHaz> hmm, not a bad idea :)

22:09 <ComradeHaz> (server sits in the office and gets a bit noisy on 100% cpu when working in there)

22:09 <MTughan> Try using the boinc_cmd program.

22:11 <MTughan> Why do you want to limit usage only at certain times?

22:11 <ComradeHaz> hmm, there doesn;t appear to be a way of changing max cpu with that

22:11 <ComradeHaz> !last haz office

22:11 <ComradeHaz> lol

22:11 <ComradeHaz> (server sits in the office and gets a bit noisy on 100% cpu when working in there)

22:12 <ComradeHaz> so 100% all night is fine

22:12 <MTughan> Okay... Does it have multiple cores?

22:12 <ComradeHaz> but need to drop it to about 60 during the day

22:12 <ComradeHaz> yeah

22:12 <ComradeHaz> core2duo

22:13 <MTughan> Because the only really good way to limit BOINC's CPU usage is to reduce the number of cores it'll work on. To just set the max CPU time usage in the manager will actually throttle the tasks.

22:13 <MTughan> Means it'll run a task for a short period of time, suspend it, then repeat. It doesn't work well for some projects.

22:13 <ComradeHaz> as in run in bursts?!

22:13 <ComradeHaz> lol :D

22:13 <MTughan> Yep.

22:13 <ComradeHaz> that's crap

22:14 <ComradeHaz> although not altogether surprising I supose

22:14 <ComradeHaz> ah yes

22:14 <MTughan> So yeah, you'd have to change the number of CPU cores being used. As to how to actually do that...

22:14 <ComradeHaz> see that now using htop

22:15 <MTughan> Because boinc_cmd doesn't print out a line for that. Doesn't mean there isn't a command for it, it's just not documented on the front end.

22:15 <ComradeHaz> ah

22:15 <ComradeHaz> ok

22:19 <ComradeHaz>

22:19 <Romulus> Title: Boinccmd tool - BOINC (at

22:19 <ComradeHaz> not much more there :(

22:19 <MTughan> Doesn't seem to be a switch to do that... Another way to do it would to be write a small program to command the remote host yourself, but I would think there's another way...

22:20 <ComradeHaz> well, could just have a couple of config files and swap them with a cron job and reload

22:20 <ComradeHaz> bit of a hack, but guess it could work

22:21 <ComradeHaz> either way I should probably go to sleep :)

22:21 <MTughan> Not easily. Because BOINC stores task into in that config file too.

22:21 <ComradeHaz> oh bollockds :D

22:21 <ComradeHaz> ok

22:22 <ComradeHaz> Well, I'll 'sleep on it' <--- sad bastard

22:22 <MTughan> I suppose you could write a sed command to do it too... Starting to get more hackish though.

22:22 <MTughan> All right, good night. :P

22:22 <ComradeHaz> thanks mate :)

22:22 <MTughan> Gah, this gum is getting hard...

22:22 <ComradeHaz> yer, conserving my remaining processing threads for tomorrows work I think :)

22:22 <ComradeHaz> for now Appollo can sweat :)

22:23 <ComradeHaz> lol

22:24 <ComradeHaz> ooh

22:24 <ComradeHaz> Carlton, hey? :)

22:24 <ComradeHaz> Student too?

22:24 <MTughan> Geolocation on my IP?

22:24 <ComradeHaz> :P

22:25 <ComradeHaz> yer

22:25 <MTughan> IIRC.

22:25 <ComradeHaz> indeed

22:25 <MTughan> AKA

22:25 <ComradeHaz>

22:25 <ComradeHaz> aka ;)

22:26 <MTughan> That ain't your IP addy though.

22:26 <ComradeHaz> It's my real one

22:26 <ComradeHaz> I proxy for IRC

22:26 <MTughan> So how does a Brit know about Carleton then?

22:26 *** zombie67 has left #boinc

22:27 <ComradeHaz> well, one hears stuff about the other uni's

22:27 <ComradeHaz> I don;t know much

22:27 <MTughan> True.

22:27 <MTughan> And BTW, yes, I'm a student.

22:27 <ComradeHaz> I'm sure you've heard about all the famous stuff Manchester's done

22:27 <MTughan> That would explain why you want to go to bed though... :P

22:27 <ComradeHaz> *coughs* :D

22:28 <ComradeHaz> aye

22:28 <MTughan> I did stay up until 7AM last night though... >_>

22:28 <ComradeHaz> supposed to be at a group meeting at 10

22:28 <ComradeHaz> design some holiday booking software in Java :'(

22:28 <ComradeHaz> I can hardly wait

22:28 <MTughan> I'm learning Python... :(

22:29 <ComradeHaz> have fun :D

22:29 <MTughan> We've just gotten into inheritance, after almost 3 months.

22:29 <ComradeHaz> :D

22:29 <MTughan> When you've had experience with Obj-C, C++, and Java, you do all this stuff way too easily...

22:29 <ComradeHaz> tbh, I'm pretty crap at programming

22:30 <ComradeHaz> hehe

22:30 <ComradeHaz> C++

22:30 <MTughan> If you took a look, BOINC's written in C++.

22:31 <ComradeHaz> yeah, it's a good language

22:31 <MTughan> Not really a starter language though.

22:31 <ComradeHaz> just those bloody segmentation faults

22:31 <MTughan> lol

22:31 <ComradeHaz> WHERE???!?

22:31 <ComradeHaz> YOU FUCK?!!

22:33 <MTughan> I don't know... Romulus is rather interesting.

22:33 <Romulus> BOINC is all perfect and stuff, MTughan

22:33 <ComradeHaz> :)

22:33 <MTughan> Microsoft?

22:33 <MTughan> Apparently not...

22:33 <MTughan> &pastebin

22:33 <Romulus> Pastebin it!

22:33 <ComradeHaz> she's rude and insulting

22:34 <ComradeHaz> and has a fettish for decomposing baby hamsters

22:34 <MTughan> &insult ComradeBob

22:34 <Romulus> ComradeBob - You are nothing but a fool-born thimbleful of unmuzzled rat.

22:34 <ComradeHaz> [03:34:50] <@ComradeBob> Reaching the level of spunkpickers would be an improvement for Romulus.
