07:33 <PovAdct_w> we were in 35C a few days ago

07:33 <jackygrahamez> I was about to say, that looks like good weather

07:33 <PovAdct_w> that's thanks to the rain

07:35 <jackygrahamez> So do you think I'm color blind?

07:35 <jackygrahamez> I finally got around to messing with the style sheet

07:36 <PovAdct_w> seems... decent

07:36 <PovAdct_w> the yellow table headings on the forum look out of place though

08:35 <PovAdct_w> I don't see what's all the fuss with that project

08:36 *** [RKN]frost has quit IRC

08:42 <jackygrahamez> My only concern, I just don't want my research to get associated with software piracy by the uninformed. Unless I have control over a media machine, not much control I have over that

08:50 <jackygrahamez> So I'm looking to make trouble again

08:51 <jackygrahamez> I've been studying an interface for submitting chemistry jobs and talking to the developers of this interface

08:51 <jackygrahamez> I'm going to modify it so it works with BOINC

08:54 <PovAdct_w> yup

08:54 <PovAdct_w> getting into trouble again

16:39 <CoderForLife> greetings all silicon- and carbon-based life forms

16:40 <MTughan> Does that exclude you?

16:40 <CoderForLife> am I to greet myself?

16:40 <MTughan> Maybe. Are you a clone?

16:41 <CoderForLife> or am I just a random quantum fluctation in this brane?

16:41 <MTughan> Possibly... Anyway, hi.

16:41 <CoderForLife> hello Michael

16:42 <CoderForLife> thanks for taking my stupid comment to the extreme =)

16:42 <MTughan> :D

16:42 <MTughan> Do we have any silicon based lifeforms? I'm not counting computers.

16:42 <CoderForLife> Rommiw

16:42 <PovAddict> he refers to Romulus

16:42 <CoderForLife> er e

16:42 <MTughan> Ah...

16:43 <CoderForLife> PovAddict knows me pretty well by now

16:43 <CoderForLife> no new tricks for this dog

16:44 <PovAddict> wow

16:44 *** [RKN]frost has quit IRC

16:44 <PovAddict> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page look at the featured article today!

16:44 <Romulus> Title: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)

16:44 <CoderForLife> I just was handed a package by an elf dressed in brown

16:44 <MTughan> Well, I thought it was cold outside until I tried this water...

16:44 <MTughan> PovAddict: Yeah, you just got that from boinc_dev?

16:44 * PovAddict nods

16:45 <MTughan> I thought it would've been talked about in here earlier, but I guess not...

16:45 <PovAddict> I joined a short while ago too

16:45 <CoderForLife> the elf was dressed in shorts

16:45 <CoderForLife> must be an Argentine elf

16:45 <MTughan> Where?! Where's the elves?!

16:46 * CoderForLife points out the window

16:46 <MTughan> Think they could make me a GTX 280 for Christmas? xD

16:46 <CoderForLife> run after him and ask

16:47 <CoderForLife> when I last saw him, he was heading your way

16:47 <MTughan> I was just thinking though... For them to make that, how small would they have to be? Not exactly like you can run after someone that small. :P

16:47 <CoderForLife> thanks for the plink, xcamel

16:48 <MTughan> Uh, wow... CoderForLife: Geolocation on your IP returns a ZIP code.

16:49 <CoderForLife> what might that be?

16:49 *** wdsmia_w has quit IRC

16:49 <MTughan> 45040.

16:49 <CoderForLife> that's not my zip

16:50 <CoderForLife> &wx 45140

16:50 <MTughan> All right, so either the ISP's ZIP or somewhere close.

16:50 <CoderForLife> lol

16:50 <MTughan> Yeah, 100...

16:50 <PovAddict> seriously

16:50 <CoderForLife> that means.. what?

16:50 <PovAddict> I have no idea how zip codes are distributed

16:50 <PovAddict> maybe off by 100 means they're actually close

16:51 <MTughan> I'm trying to find a map...

16:51 <CoderForLife> &zip 45040

16:51 <Romulus> CoderForLife: Are you daft?

16:51 <CoderForLife> different counties

16:51 <CoderForLife> hey, same country!

16:52 <PovAddict> same state

16:52 <MTughan> They're actually fairly close.

16:52 <PovAddict> ...and that's about it :)

16:52 <MTughan> http://maps.huge.info/zip.htm Key in 45140, look slightly north.

16:52 <Romulus> Title: Click for a Zip Code Boundary Map. (at maps.huge.info)

16:52 <PovAddict> "To put this into perspective, reading from L1 cache is like grabbing a piece of paper from your desk (3 seconds), L2 cache is picking up a book from a nearby shelf (14 seconds), and main system memory is taking a 4-minute walk down the hall to buy a Twix bar."

16:52 <CoderForLife> the 2 counties touch at one point

16:53 <MTughan> Actually, that doesn't sound too far off...

16:53 <MTughan> Although is that QPI, HT, or FSB based?

16:53 <PovAddict> http://duartes.org/gustavo/blog/post/what-your-computer-does-while-you-wait

16:53 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5pvj6h> (at duartes.org)

16:54 <MTughan> FSB.

16:54 <CoderForLife> TLA based

16:56 * CoderForLife enters more UPS and FedEx tracking numbers to follow

16:58 <CoderForLife> I am tracking 6 in-bound shipments at the same time, aside from the one just delivered

16:58 *** CoderForLife is now known as CyberShopper

16:58 <MTughan> lol

17:01 *** CyberShopper is now known as CoderForLife

17:03 <CoderForLife> shipping estimates are funny - "Will arrive between Wednesday, 12/03/08, and Monday, 12/08/08" - sorta like "will be delivered to zip code 45040 or 45140" - what's to worry?

17:06 <CoderForLife> I need to go fill the birdfeeders before darkness claims the backyard - brb

17:24 <CoderForLife> back - the birdies said to say hi

17:25 <CoderForLife> I had 4 deer on the driveway on the way in, standing in front of the garage

17:25 <CoderForLife> didn't want to scare them into dancing on my car

17:28 <CoderForLife> It seems that changing your nick for phun in one IRC chat room can lead to ramifications in others that you may have joined  =P

17:42 <MTughan> That's the problem: the Flash app they're using doesn't seem to do that.

18:29 <xcamel> is there a place to 'turn it on' ?

18:29 <PovAddict> no, you just attach to a GPU-enabled project

18:29 <PovAddict> ie. GPUGRID

18:29 <xcamel> figures..

18:30 <PovAddict> startup messages should have said something about your GPU specs, and if it found CUDA

18:30 <xcamel> no cuda devices found

18:47 <xcamel> well, at least it looks like 6.4.2 is fast, clear, and sharp.

18:47 <PovAddict> one of the reasons is that the Manager was rolled back to the one in 6.2 :)

20:10 <MTughan> Cool... Looks I'm close to finishing a 19h ABC WU. Probably a 1K one.

20:19 <xcamel> indeed

20:40 * efc gets tired of Dell yanking their prices around

20:43 <xcamel> Dell Hell

20:43 <efc> I like their monitors at least, but they really yank around the prices, $517 to 689 in one day

20:44 <xcamel> priced by demand

20:47 <efc> My demand went to zero

20:56 <zombie67> TM??

20:56 <Romulus> hmm... TM is selling a bunch, zombie67

21:00 <efc> I think they raise it during the business week, at least

21:02 * quail looking into getting a dell laptop

21:05 <MTughan> Tank_Master: You have a visitor.

21:23 <MTughan> I think I found a BOINC bug...

21:23 <MTughan> While logged into a remote machine, if that connection gets physically cut off, the manager freezes.

21:26 <PovAddict> ha

21:26 <PovAddict> that's nothing

21:27 <MTughan> I know, but it's there.

21:27 <PovAddict> disconnect from the 'net, let BOINC contact a project

21:27 <PovAddict> it will hang on DNS resolution for like 30 seconds

21:27 <PovAddict> during that time, it won't reply to manager requests

21:27 <PovAddict> manager will hang too

21:27 <MTughan> Ah, the wonders of single threading...

21:27 <PovAddict> also won't reply science app heartbeats, so science apps might say "no heartbeat in X seconds" and quit

21:28 <PovAddict> so when finally the client says "connection timeout", it will also say "task quit with zero return code but no "finished" file, restarting"

21:28 <PovAddict> and the stupid "if this happens repeatedly you may have to detach"

21:30 <MTughan> Isn't it reattach?

21:30 <PovAddict> whatever

21:30 <PovAddict> w,etf

21:31 <MTughan> And then something that's not BOINC's fault, but I loathe anyway...

21:31 <MTughan> Connecting to my laptop with RPC, the IP addresses changes every time.

21:31 <MTughan> Thinking about possibly creating a small subnet using my new computer as a router and webserver.

21:33 <xcamel> <PovAddict> manager will hang too... well hung?

21:33 <xcamel> or 'johnny hung'

21:34 <MTughan> xcamel: Don't go there.

21:39 * xcamel leaves the general area

21:47 *** desti has quit IRC
