00:13 <Soul_keeper> bush loves you !
00:15 <efc> He's not going to leave O'bama any money by Jan 20 hehe
00:15 <Soul_keeper> obama don't care
00:16 <Soul_keeper> he's already got plans to take out more money than the war cost over the last 5yrs
00:16 <Soul_keeper> debt ...
00:16 <Soul_keeper> gonna pump it into subsidies and government programs
00:16 <Soul_keeper> went from the frying pan into the fire it seems
00:16 <Soul_keeper> government spending gone awry
00:17 <efc> I guess i'd rather see it go to civil projects than to banks that just hoard it
00:17 <efc> but can't afford either
00:17 <Soul_keeper> yeah they need to listen to ron paul
00:17 <efc> I need to dump my dollars
00:17 <efc> Invest in i7s?
00:18 <Soul_keeper> need to right now ?
00:18 <Soul_keeper> can't wait till spring ?
00:18 <efc> Depends, will the dollar exist in spring? Probably.
00:18 <Soul_keeper> i'm not a fan of the i7
00:19 <Soul_keeper> HT and higher latencies kinda make it less appealing
00:19 <efc> expensive platform
00:19 <Soul_keeper> dunno about boinc points per dollar tho, i've not been keeping up on the benchmarks
00:20 <efc> But 6 memory slots is a plus, have not seen that in a while
00:20 <Soul_keeper> daneb will be interesting
00:20 <efc> Can't see the HT as much of a downside.. can turn it off
00:20 <Soul_keeper> then you'd lose 40% performance or whatever
00:21 <efc> Then turn it on? Whats the problem?
00:21 <Soul_keeper> it's just HT, i don't agree with the whole idea
00:21 <Soul_keeper> not that it's not going to give them an upper hand, just i don't think it's a good direction
00:22 <efc> I thought it was stupid, but it seems to be helping my s@h output a bunch
00:22 <efc> sun had something similar for years i think.. hardware contexts
00:22 <Soul_keeper> you got an i7 ?
00:22 <efc> no, p4
00:22 <Soul_keeper> ahh
00:23 <efc> i have two p4's 2.8 ghz, one with HT, and one w/o
00:23 <Soul_keeper> true cores kill HT anyday, i don't see AMD releasing an 8 core anytime soon tho
00:23 <Soul_keeper> you can have my 2.8 P4 ...
00:23 <efc> w/o has 1.378 gflops atm, with HT has 1.2 x 2 gflops
00:24 <Soul_keeper> i cracked the NB on the motherboard
00:24 <Soul_keeper> ha
00:27 <efc> Whats NB?
00:27 <Soul_keeper> north bridge
00:27 <Soul_keeper> might have burnt it up, havn't had the care to investigate more
00:28 <efc> Oh, the bad kind of cracked
00:28 <Soul_keeper> but it stopped working right after reseating the NB heatsink
00:28 <Soul_keeper> cpu/mem should still be good tho
00:28 <Soul_keeper> it wasn't worth the energy to run it anyways
00:29 <efc> My poor 386 is toast :( Hacks me off.
00:30 <Soul_keeper> i've broke so much hardware over the years, hard to even think about it ...
00:30 <Soul_keeper> i like breaking things i guess
00:31 <efc> this one.. the battery leaked acid a little bit. But it ate traces all over the place
00:31 <Soul_keeper> nice one
00:33 <efc> I thought about fixing it but not realistic
00:33 <efc> I think it would have lasted forever. TTL chips on the board, un-killable.
00:45 *** tidus has joined #boinc

00:55 <Soul_keeper> i need a pin diagram for a 30 pin slot connector for a laptop lcd
00:56 <Tidus> what brand laptop?
00:56 <Soul_keeper> lemme check
00:59 <Soul_keeper> sager 5600n
01:00 <Soul_keeper> i want to convert the 30 pin proprietary connector to a 15pin vga or dvi connector so i can use it as a second screen for my desktop
01:00 <Soul_keeper> just took the screen appart examining it now
01:00 *** Eythan has quit IRC
01:02 <Tidus> hm... wouldn't know where to find the pinout
01:02 <Tidus> might try finding the technical manual for the machine
01:11 <Soul_keeper> finding nothing, might have to GUESS ...
01:12 <Soul_keeper> i've never been able to find diagrams or blue sheets for this thing, probably why it's been in peices for several years
01:15 <Tidus> if it's 30 pin, it's probably some mangled form of dvi
01:15 <Tidus> 26 pins plus power ?
01:15 <Tidus> i think my HP lcd has the same stinkin connector
01:25 <MTughan> Tidus: Yes, I did. I don't think I'm interested anymore then.
01:27 <Soul_keeper> maybe
01:31 <Soul_keeper> i got it down to the ICs and pcb now, got any number i need, i'll figure it out if i don't give up
01:36 <Soul_keeper> "Engineering Specification Type 15.0 UXGA Color TFT/LCD Module ..." i'm onto them now
01:43 <Soul_keeper> got exactely what i need
01:44 <Soul_keeper> http://www.gblcd.com/datacenter/idtech/ITUX97C.pdf contains the interface signal connector pin out, just gotta match it up with the standard DVI/vga pin order
01:46 <Soul_keeper> can't believe i found that specs sheet :)
01:46 <Soul_keeper> was 32 pins, my eyes are shotty
01:48 <CoderForLife> congrats Soul_keeper
01:48 <CoderForLife> I am continually amazed what you can find online
01:52 <Soul_keeper> will take me some time to figure out moer specifics tho, nothing wiki doesn't seem to have for the acronyms :)
01:55 <Soul_keeper> 18 instances of these ReIN0-/+ ReIN1-/+ ReIN2-/+ ReCLKIN-/+ RoCLKIN-/+ seem to match up with the 18 instances of DVI-I TMDS Data1-/+ Data2-/+ format
02:03 <Soul_keeper> appears to be a matter of LVDS vs. TMDS gotta verify that they are compatible and not just "similar"
02:26 <Soul_keeper> it won't be a simple conversion
02:26 <Soul_keeper> one is a 3.3v system the other a 5v system apparently ...

12:41 <yoyo[RKN]> disabled since weeks
12:42 <yoyo[RKN]> as there was a spammer creating 10.000 accounts
12:43 <yoyo[RKN]> I see, create_account_form is only the formular which afterwards calls create_account action
12:43 <MTughan> I suppose if he knew the right arguments, he could force a POST to it.
12:43 <MTughan> Did you block GET or just POST?
12:43 <MTughan> That was badly worded... Other way around.

12:46 <MTughan> create_account_form.php
12:46 <yoyo[RKN]> create_account_form.php
12:46 <PovAdct_w> disabling the form doesn't help if you can still access create_account_action.php (which is the URL the form sends data to)
12:46 <Romulus> Title: general pastebin - Something - post number 1268758 (at pastebin.ca)
12:46 <PovAdct_w> they could be POSTing manually to the _action.php page

12:48 <MTughan> GET to create_account_action.php with args.
12:48 <yoyo[RKN]> I think he uses Opera which provides more support to simulate a post request
12:49 <PovAdct_w> or a script that can do whatever and give a fake user agent and/or referer
12:49 <yoyo[RKN]> he is just playing, only 5 accounts are created per day
12:49 <PovAdct_w> hmm then it's probably manual
12:49 <PovAdct_w> what did you do to the form?
12:50 <yoyo[RKN]> sleep(120);exit(1);
12:50 <MTughan> "but my create_account_form.php does not work, it just makes sleep(120);exit(1);"

13:41 <MTughan> Yeah, I'm running ABC on that one.
13:42 <KathrynM> only on during work hours
13:42 <MTughan> Hmm... I have 13,000 credits I can't account for by adding up the credit totals from my various "computers".
13:43 <MTughan> According to BOINCStats, you have three active computers: a T7250 @ 2GHz running Linux, a T2300 @ 1.66GHz running Linux, and the AMD 64 X2 4200+ running XP.
13:44 <KathrynM> yup
13:44 <MTughan> I only have two computers running: a T9400 @ 2.53GHz running Linux, and a 1500 @ 2GHz running OS X.
13:44 <MTughan> I have no idea what 1500 means... I know it's a Core Duo, Yonah core.
13:45 <KathrynM> simial to my T2300
13:45 <KathrynM> it's also a yonah core
13:45 <MTughan> All right, cool. I can't really give you accurate statistics on that one though...
13:46 <MTughan> Recently had an ID split, probably from attaching to BAM. Credit/day is 17,000, credit/week is 67,000. xD
13:46 <KathrynM> nice
13:46 <MTughan> Looks like it got about 1000 credits yesterday though. Crunching Einstein and Milkway.
13:46 <MTughan> Milkyway*

16:07 <PovAddict> heck at least it *works*

16:09 <PovAddict> my free Ubuntu CD arrived :P
16:10 <PovAddict> I ordered it long ago; it took longer than usual because 8.10 had just come out
16:10 <PovAddict> so it's the time they take to start making CDs with the new data, cover, etc. plus them getting a peak of orders

17:40 <CoderForLife> yummy
17:40 *** [RKN]frost has quit IRC
17:40 <CoderForLife> need some leftovers?
17:40 <xcamel> K - don't eat bananas
17:40 <KathrynM> I rarely eat them, only when I start getting sponaneous leg cramps at night
17:40 <KathrynM> please send a pumpkin pie or 20 over
17:41 <MTughan> Hungry kids?
17:41 <KathrynM> hungry teachers
17:41 <xcamel> ...or anything with a high potassium level
17:42 <CoderForLife> cya later folks - going downstairs to give the couch a good sitting
17:43 <efc> Potassium can cause cramps? Hmmm. I thought it was lack of it that was a problem.
17:43 <MTughan> Night CFL.
17:43 <xcamel> If I did that I'd be asleep in about 10 flat
17:43 <CoderForLife> laterz
17:43 <MTughan> Or later... Whatever works.
17:43 <PovAddict> efc: uh yes
17:43 <PovAddict> efc: Kathryn said she eats bananas when she has cramps...
17:43 <PovAddict> to stop them... probably
17:43 <efc> Maybe I should knock off the bananas then
17:44 <PovAddict> so yeah lack of it seems like the problem
17:44 <KathrynM> exactly PovAddict
17:44 <KathrynM> I only get them when the cramps start
17:44 <KathrynM> errr buy them
17:44 <PovAddict> to make them stop :)
17:44 <KathrynM> yeah
17:45 * PovAddict would like to tell SETI admins to block IPs from Argentina
17:45 <MTughan> Why?
17:45 <KathrynM> ?????
17:45 <PovAddict> so computers over the country run out of work, stop crunching, and we avoid powercuts...
17:45 <PovAddict> historical power consumption record today
17:46 <MTughan> That would be the A/C.
17:46 <PovAddict> well we can't exactly stop ACs :)
17:47 <PovAddict> and ET-searching computers cause heat, so in theory ACs would run less if computers heat less
17:47 <PovAddict> the real long term solution would be to *generate more damned electricity*
17:47 <MTughan> We have basically the opposite here... 0C and snow.

17:48 <PovAddict> govt keeps telling people use less electricity, as if that was *possible*
17:48 <PovAddict> population has grown
17:48 <PovAddict> the number of electricity-eating devices people have has grown
17:48 <efc> Do you have good wind resources there?
17:48 <PovAddict> yet nobody has done any significant investment in generating electricity
17:49 <PovAddict> efc: hell of a lot of wind in the east, hell of a lot of sun in the north, nobody interested in putting money into using that energy though
17:49 <MTughan> It would take that energy off the earth and put it into electricity. Where it gets converted back to heat, so you're basically doing nothing. :P
17:50 <efc> I'm not really a green but if its there, and makes economic sense...
17:50 <KathrynM> speaking of wind... damn it's windy here
17:50 <PovAddict> you know, better to build a few more fuel-eating thermoelectric plants
17:50 <PovAddict> because fuel comes from oil
17:51 <PovAddict> and oil = good (for political and economic reasons for the people in power)
17:51 <efc> Not sure what the payback is on the modern wind plants..\
17:51 <efc> Better than solar though I think
17:51 <PovAddict> Spain is *full* of them
17:51 <MTughan> Las Vegas is experimenting with solar farms.
17:52 <PovAddict> oh if only heat could be converted to electricity...
17:52 <MTughan> It can. Just needs to be contained to heat water to steam to turn a turbine. That's the hard part. :P
17:52 <PovAddict> trains would be perpetual motion machines... heat from the sweating passengers used to move it
17:53 <MTughan> That is how coal power plants actually work though.
17:53 <xcamel> Spain just hit some record of power supply from solar/wind
17:54 <PovAddict> we're in a stupid timezone because the delusional president thinks DST actually helps
17:54 <xcamel> payback on wind/solar is very poor still
17:55 <PovAddict> yet we still have soccer matches at night... I don't even want to think how much electricity is used by the lighting
17:56 <PovAddict> and that's apparently because having it at night makes economical sense for the broadcasters who put the match on TV
18:10 <xcamel> when they have the most eyeballs
18:25 * xcamel yawns again
18:29 <xcamel> turkey coma - ore something close
18:29 <xcamel> ore?

18:40 <PovAddict> my intertubes are slow...
18:54 * efc made some code massively faster, that always feels good
18:54 <PovAddict> \o/
18:55 <efc> volumetric search, cut by factor of 1000, and its close enough to right to not matter :)
18:56 <efc> about 4x faster in practice

23:30 <CodeBlock> hello all
23:31 <MTughan> Hey CodeBlock.
23:31 <CodeBlock> question - is it possible to set up/use boinc to contribute to a project without a GUI on the server it's on? In other words a CLI manager instead of the GUI
23:32 <MTughan> Yeah, there's two parts to the BOINC model: a core client which runs as a daemon, and a GUI manager that connects to it. What OS are you running?
23:32 <CodeBlock> MTughan: one'll be debian, one'll be Cent
23:32 <MTughan> Okay, so both Linux distros.
23:32 <CodeBlock> yep
23:33 <MTughan> I created an init script for my Linux comp... Let me just pull up what command I used to start the daemon.
23:33 <CodeBlock> MTughan: only one of them has Xorg (which i rarely use anyway), so I'm looking for a CLI-ish way of doing things
23:35 <MTughan> I used the run_client script included in the self-extracter with "--daemon" for flags. After that, you can either use the GUI manager on another computer (Mac or Windows too, not just Linux), or the boinccmd program on the CLI for control.
23:36 <MTughan> "boinccmd --help" will get you the options.
