03:50 <KathrynM> howdy
03:50 <CoderForLife> but I brought the bills upstairs
03:50 <CoderForLife> morning KathrynM =)
03:50 <KathrynM> paid my bills last week
03:51 <CoderForLife> Saturday @3:50am here

03:51 <CoderForLife> I pay bills every week

04:03 <CoderForLife> nobody won the MegaMillions jackpot
04:04 <efc> I think the banks did
04:04 <CoderForLife> heh
04:04 <CoderForLife> they're playing MegaBillions
04:05 <CoderForLife> I looked at forming a bank holding company
04:08 <efc> citibank preferred stock hit a 25% yield at one point. That would have been sweet. but i think they'll quit paying.
04:08 <CoderForLife> problem was I started 2 days before the bailout application form was due - I was too busy to get it all done in time
04:09 <efc> You needed some debt. Too bad, you could have loaned me 300k and then I would have defaulted on it. No need to thank me.
04:11 <CoderForLife> that's about the size of my outstanding mortgage balance - I did that all on my own
04:12 <efc> I've seen some nice big hunting lodges + 1000ish acres for sale. You need some bad debt, let me know.
04:12 <CoderForLife> expires tomorrow
04:13 <efc> I could bring a girl home to that place! Yes this plan will work
04:13 <CoderForLife> be sure to use the right charackteriztiks

04:36 <CoderForLife> hmm - bill was a bit more than budget
04:44 <CoderForLife> gas usage up 59%, electric usage up 32%
04:44 <CoderForLife> over last year, same timeframe
04:45 <CoderForLife> must be that dang natural gas powered BOINC machine I installed

14:56 <efc> something like 1360x768
14:56 <MTughan> That's an odd resolution...
14:56 <MTughan> I would've expected 1920x1080.
14:57 <efc> its a 720 line TV, so whatever width that comes out to
14:59 <efc> With the money we throw at these things, we could just buy old school projectors and film prints, and have all the "def" available..
15:00 <MTughan> That'd be 1280x720.

17:12 <MTughan> 'lo Jay
17:20 <efc> I need some more vertical pixels.. I think about 2500 would do
17:21 <MTughan> I think the biggest screen size you can get now is 2560x1600...
17:21 <efc> The higher end 24"s will rotate and come close
17:22 <MTughan> Fair enough. 1600x2560.
17:22 <efc> I try to work on stuff like this.. http://home.earthlink.net/~cottongim/FinaleConcertBand.png
17:22 <efc> thats not even getting the whole score on the screen at once and not legible either
17:23 <MTughan> That's a big window...
17:23 <xcamel> indeed
17:24 <efc> only a concert band score, orchestra is bigger
17:24 *** Aruzo has quit IRC
17:25 <efc> It might be unrealistic to have the whole thing big enough for editing all at once (to edit you have to be able to point very precisely) but maybe it could be legible at once
17:25 <xcamel> you need my 43" plasma
17:26 <xcamel> but you can't have it.
17:26 <MTughan> How's the resolution?
17:26 <xcamel> great... as a TV
17:27 <MTughan> 1080p?
17:27 <xcamel> yup
17:27 <MTughan> So 1920x1080. Still doesn't beat 2560x1600.
17:27 <efc> I guess I really need higher DPI more than a bigger screen.. On paper, a score is about 18" high and reasonable to read and write
17:34 <efc> Yep 2560x1600 is the highest at Newegg.. Of course you can start stacking them up..
17:35 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC
17:36 <efc> Some of those require dual-link connections
17:37 <efc> LED backlighting, intersting
17:43 <MTughan> Most of the monitors in that resolution range will require dual-link DVI.
17:44 <MTughan> If not all.
17:50 <efc> according to wikip, 2560x1600 is the max for dual link DVI, at least at 60hz
17:53 <efc> DisplayPort doesn't really up it that much
17:58 <MTughan> Not many uses for that big a res. On a 24" screen, that equates to 126 pixels per inch, which is one of the higher ratios in screens.
17:58 <MTughan> A 1920x1200 15" laptop monitor has 147 pixels/inch, the highest I've seen.

18:12 <CoderForLife> wall was built in September with the new patio on top, fence added in October, landscaping finished in November
18:12 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc
18:12 <CoderForLife> yeah Pov - couldn't be helped
18:12 <sethy> needs batteries
18:14 <xcamel> snow added in december for effect
18:15 <PovAddict> Google Maps breaks impressively in Konqueror...
18:17 <xcamel> OK... this is cool...
18:17 <xcamel> global air traffic simulation...
18:17 <Romulus> Title: YouTube - AirTraffic Worldwide (at www.youtube.com)
18:22 <efc> xcamel: the pain, the pain, my babies!
18:23 *** efc has quit IRC
18:24 <xcamel> that junkyard covers over 100 acres
18:24 <xcamel> you can see it on google earth
18:34 <CoderForLife> pretty amazing
18:35 <xcamel> did you find the GE link?
18:36 <CoderForLife> yup
18:36 <CoderForLife> looked at Brant Trail
18:37 <CoderForLife> it's jaw-dropping
18:37 <xcamel> I have hiked in that area years ago... never saw that mess though...
18:37 <CoderForLife> no rhyme-or-reason, just dumped wherever
18:38 <CoderForLife> found a pic of a '75 Mercury Comet like I drove
18:39 <xcamel> just about a mile or two north of there, on the old rail line trail
18:40 <xcamel> hmm.. we broke a 72 merc cougar in half on a hump-back rail bridge once..
18:41 <CoderForLife> that reservoir looks OK
18:42 <CoderForLife> guess there's 2

18:49 <CoderForLife> off for the evening
18:49 <CoderForLife> gn folks
18:51 <MTughan> Night CFL.
18:51 <CoderForLife> gn MTughan
18:54 <xcamel> I can feel your storm creeping in on little snowman feet...
18:56 <xcamel> bbl..

20:23 <Soul_keeper> ok, who here bought me a xmas present ?
20:29 * efc silently slips out the back door
20:34 <efc> Wait, maybe you would like a few billion dollars in bad debt
21:02 <Soul_keeper> nah i need a bailout :)
21:03 <efc> Ok, you can have 35 billion $$, but you can't have anymore until tommorrow, and thats final
21:04 <Soul_keeper> :)
21:04 <Soul_keeper> but i need 70B and i'm too big to fail ...
21:04 <efc> Darnit, you need more already? Ok, here's 25 billion, but we warned, this is your 5th to last warning
21:05 <Soul_keeper> i swear i'll repay it, here's some stocks ... you'll get your money back honest
21:06 * PovAddict looks at his $200 and feels poor
21:06 <PovAddict> otoh, I currently have quite low expenses
21:06 <efc> You need more debt. Solvency is Un-American. Un-South-American even.
21:06 <PovAddict> lol
21:07 <PovAddict> I think I have no debt
21:07 <PovAddict> unless you ask my sister
21:07 <PovAddict> then she will tell you I owe her a birthday present
21:08 <Soul_keeper> how old is your sister ?
21:08 <PovAddict> 15
21:08 <Soul_keeper> got a 25yr old sister ?
21:08 <PovAddict> ...
21:08 * efc shoots Soul_Keeper and re-asks the question
21:08 <PovAddict> no
21:09 <Soul_keeper> lol
21:09 <Soul_keeper> i'm the best xmas present a girl could get ...
21:09 <PovAddict> yeaa right
21:09 <PovAddict> &grab Soul_keeper
21:09 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.
21:15 <efc> So close, and yet so far
21:48 *** desti has quit IRC
21:49 *** desti has joined #boinc
21:56 *** [RKN]frost has quit IRC
22:13 <PovAddict> 6.4.4 out soon
22:14 <MTughan> Judging from SVN commits?
23:00 * efc tries to D/L POVRay again
23:02 <efc> Looks like about an hour to convert this stack of .wavs.. good excuse to buy a new machine!
23:04 <efc> make that several hours
23:06 <efc> CDex isn't multithreaded unfortunately
23:18 <efc> Would be cool if somehow my machine could send out these intensive tasks to other machines on the farm here..
23:24 <PovAddict> I wrote a Python script to import one of the Einstein@Home stats exports into a MySQL database
23:24 <PovAddict> took quite a while
23:24 <PovAddict> 215525 users
23:24 <PovAddict> adding up to 9772218206 credit
23:27 <efc> I guess thats what beowulf was for, but probably not easy to use for my once-every-two-years taksts
23:27 <MTughan> Depending on when that data was collected, up to 200K of that could be mind. :P
23:27 <PovAddict> MTughan: I can get what % of the total credit is yours
23:28 <PovAddict> found you
23:28 <PovAddict> 0.002208%
23:28 <MTughan> &math 9772218206 * 0.00002208
23:28 <Romulus> MTughan: 215770.577988
23:29 <MTughan> :o Fairly recent...
23:29 <PovAddict> your credits show as 215862.91389
23:29 <PovAddict> (I rounded the percentage)
23:29 <MTughan> I have 216,082.22 right now. Did you get these yesterday?
23:29 <PovAddict> probably
23:30 <PovAddict> I download them as soon as they update
23:30 * efc spends 2 months uploading these files so Pov can compress them with his database-obliterating machine
23:32 <efc> Ah, I could map the drives and have another machine compress them!
23:32 <PovAddict> takes me 85.19 seconds to import one of these into MySQL
23:33 <PovAddict> bottleneck is probably XML parsing and misc Python overhead
23:33 <PovAddict> clearly, it won't scale to import the 6GB of XML I have
23:34 <MTughan> How much was the E@H data?
23:34 <PovAddict> 63MB uncompressed
23:34 <MTughan> Ouch...
23:34 <PovAddict> I have a month or two of files like it
23:34 <PovAddict> updated twice a day
23:34 <MTughan> &math [math convert 6 GiB to MB] / 63
23:34 <Romulus> MTughan: 102.261126095
23:34 <PovAddict> plus the team files
23:35 <MTughan> &math convert [math [math convert 6 GiB to MB] / 63 * 85.19] seconds to hours
23:35 <Romulus> MTughan: 2.41989592557
23:35 <MTughan> Two and a half hours using linear scaling...
23:36 <PovAddict> I need to figure out an efficient database layout for this kind of historical data
23:36 <PovAddict> users don't change name/country every day
23:36 <PovAddict> lots of users don't change any info for long periods of time (no active crunching on the project, no credit changes)
23:37 <PovAddict> yet *if* the country changes for a user, I want to keep that record in the DB
23:39 <PovAddict> or teams
23:39 <PovAddict> if I make a table of "team changes" (user, new team, timestamp), I'm not sure if I can efficiently get the team from a user ID and a timestamp (what team was he in back in day X?)
23:39 <PovAddict> hmm ranges would work
23:40 <PovAddict> userid, team, from timestamp X to Y
23:40 <PovAddict> select teamid from team_history where userid=42 and start_time > 12345678 and end_time < 12345678;
23:41 <efc> heh, BOINCView is mad that one machine's production just dropped off a cliff
23:41 <PovAddict> heh
23:41 *** Novacrust has joined #boinc
23:42 <MTughan> efc: I'd be mad too if it was something like this machine. :P http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=1611506
23:42 <MTughan> Take a look at the RAC.
23:43 <efc> Saaa-weet
23:43 <MTughan> It was posted on the forums that it's a Dell server. 4x6-core Dunnington procs.
23:44 <efc> Wonder which company's policies he's violating hehe
23:45 <MTughan> I think Pov posted that link in here a couple days ago.
23:46 <efc> I kinda doubt its cost effective for that RAC though
23:47 <MTughan> Dunno. Damn nice machine though.
23:48 <PovAddict> the most cost effective machines are those where you aren't paying for the electricity
23:48 <PovAddict> like, say, MTughan's
23:48 <MTughan> :D
23:48 <PovAddict> or me
23:49 <MTughan> About to get that much more cost effective... I'll probably overtake Pov by that point. :P
23:49 <efc> We have a couple of multi KW chomping giant servers at work
23:49 <efc> And they run CVS and serve files.
23:49 <PovAddict> my mom once wanted to make me pay part of the electricity bill
23:50 <MTughan> I believe Pov is averaging about 2500 credits/day, I'm doing ~4000.
23:51 <efc> dammit, if they kill off the hot women in this movie too early, I'm going to be hacked off
23:51 *** Tank_Master has quit IRC
23:51 <MTughan> lol
23:52 <efc> lower rent JLH but still nie
23:52 <efc> nice
23:55 <efc> 41 kb of cache on that thing? heh
23:55 <MTughan> On what?
23:56 <efc> the link you sent
23:56 <MTughan> &math 16 * 4
23:56 <Romulus> MTughan: 64
23:56 <MTughan> Should be that much...
23:56 <MTughan> Hmm, BOINC seems to read it wrong.
23:57 <PovAddict> im off
23:57 <MTughan> Seeya Pov.
23:57 <efc> POV downloaded.. I'll have something great for you in the morning
23:58 <MTughan> Yeow... Intel's price for one of those CPUs is $2729USD. And that machine has four of 'em.
23:58 <MTughan> PovAddict: 6.4.4 released if you're interested.
23:58 <efc> Yeah, those big machines just aren't cost effective that I can see
