00:07 <PovAddict> why does CFL have ops?
00:07 <PovAddict> why am I still up?
00:07 <CoderForLife> hey there
00:08 <CoderForLife> why ask why
00:08 <MTughan> For some reason, he's on the ACCESS list as auto-op.

00:15 <CoderForLife> I need to take some pain killers, or at least some pain dullers - bbiaf
00:15 <PovAddict> I need to... sleep
00:16 * PovAddict checks email instead
00:16 <PovAddict> maybe I should talk to a doctor about this addiction
00:18 <quail> CoderForLife: is the evil underground cracker, and that why he got auto-op :-P
00:19 <quail> PovAddict: what have you got an addiction too?
00:19 <MTughan> Computers. :P
00:20 <quail> oh that all, that addiction can be curered with a bucket of water :-P
00:20 <MTughan> Expensive fix, isn't it?
00:21 <quail> thats if you want to replace the equipment afterwards :-P
00:21 <MTughan> But no more BOINC. :P
00:22 <CoderForLife> b
00:22 <PovAddict> that would be the point, sort of
00:24 <CoderForLife> my theory is that yesterday morning I was going downstairs, when suddenly my right knee buckled/"kicked out" on me, and I wrenched the muscle in my inner left thigh
00:24 <CoderForLife> it's very weak, and hurts a bit
00:25 * CoderForLife takes Tylenol, and eats some leftover roast beef
00:26 <CoderForLife> maybe I should talk to a doctor about Pov's addiction
00:26 <efc> sorry quail, i'm good
00:26 <CoderForLife> moo
00:27 <PovAddict> maybe i could start drinking... replace an addiction with another
00:28 <CoderForLife> replace? you'll never be able to quit Coding
00:29 <PovAddict> oh so it has no cure

00:31 <CoderForLife> it gives life, it's a way of life, and it's a prison sentence
00:33 <PovAddict> replaces social life, creates insane sleep patterns, causes dry eyes (at least does for me)
00:34 <CoderForLife> what is this thing "social life"? I don't understand
00:36 <CoderForLife> you must be refering to #boinc

11:14 <joapuipe> hello
11:15 <joapuipe> has anyone installed Boinc in Gentoo?
11:16 <MTughan> Any problems should at least be similar to other Linux distros. What's going on?
11:17 <joapuipe> I think that is a problem related with this distribution, because I get some errors on the installation.
11:17 <MTughan> Well, I could maybe still help.
11:18 <Romulus> Title: Nopaste - Error emerging Boinc (at rafb.net)
11:19 <MTughan> You're trying to build from source?
11:19 <MTughan> Or is that from the package manager?
11:19 <joapuipe> No that's from package manager
11:20 <joapuipe> Portage
11:20 <MTughan> Would you mind posting the log at /var/tmp/portage/sci-misc/boinc-6.2.15/temp/build.log?
11:20 <joapuipe> But it builds the source
11:20 <joapuipe> ok
11:20 <joapuipe> wait a second...
11:21 <MTughan> You're right this is a distro specific error, but it might still be something easily fixable.
11:22 <DerMeister> joapuipe: you get this error *only* when trying to build boinc?
11:22 <MTughan> He's trying to install from Portage, the package manager.
11:22 <joapuipe> yes
11:23 <joapuipe> I've installed Boinc from the script available on the official webpage and it runs, so, the problem is in the installation process...
11:23 <MTughan> I don't suppose you need root access?
11:24 <joapuipe> :) I'm logged as root :P
11:24 <MTughan> All right, just checking... :P
11:27 *** [RKN]frost has joined #boinc
11:27 <MTughan> Yeah, I'm not sure. I did a manual installation on Fedora, so I could probably walk you through a manual installation, but I don't know what's going on with the packages. Did you find that log file I posted?
11:29 <joapuipe> wait a second, please... I have some troubles to paste it to rafb.net... xD

11:35 <joapuipe> I removed distcc yesterday and I didn't removed it from compiling options!
11:35 <MTughan> That could either be a distcc bug, distcc not being found, or a bad link.
11:35 <MTughan> Ah... :P

11:38 <MTughan> Ah, so that's what distcc is... I'd heard of the name before, but never actually encountered it.
11:38 <joapuipe> Probably I must "clean" some things before...
11:39 <MTughan> Probably a good idea.

11:57 <MTughan> Holy crap... Nvidia seems to be introducing a GTX 295 soon. If I'm reading this right, it's two GTX 260 chips on a single board... O_O
11:58 <MTughan> I'm scared to know the power consumption on that thing, as the GTX 260 alone has a TDP of 186W...
12:00 <DerMeister> 186W? You could easily power two or three quite performant CPUs with that...
12:00 <PovAddict> yeah
12:00 <PovAddict> I'm skeptical about GPUs really giving good performance per watt
12:01 <MTughan> IIRC, the 280 has a TDP of ~240W.
12:01 <PovAddict> compared to good CPUs
12:01 <MTughan> 236W according to Wikipedia.
12:01 <MTughan> I can't wait until BOINC comes to the ATI cards, because they have a lot more shaders, so more parallel processing.
12:01 <DerMeister> I think they still out-perfom CPUs at special tasks that really need what GPUs provide: massive parallelism.
12:03 <MTughan> GTX 280 has 240 shaders for 236W, 260 has 192/216 for 182W. The HD4850 and 4870 each have 800 shader units, although I'm not sure what their TDP is ATM.
12:03 <PovAddict> my PC heats enough as it is
12:04 <PovAddict> my sister's is kinda worse
12:04 <PovAddict> (Pentium 4)
12:04 <MTughan> AFAICT, the 4870 is 160W TDP.
12:04 <PovAddict> but I'm worried about the hard disk temperature on that machine
12:04 <PovAddict> I should buy a new disk and copy everything
12:05 <PovAddict> if your CPU gets damaged for the heat, you curse for the lost money and get a new one
12:05 <PovAddict> if your hard disk gets damaged for the heat, congrats, you just lost all your data

14:13 <ELGono> 4700's and 2200's and some foils

14:37 <hawmps> not as funny as the capacitors they used to build here in Schenectady..
14:37 <hawmps> they were charged and used to explode full sized power poles
14:37 <ELGono> well so we called fostex ... they told us, there a no fostex amps, but they wanted to take a look at it...

14:40 <MTughan> Wow...
14:40 <hawmps> that would make it mighty rare
14:40 <ELGono> and they were really happy, that it found its way to germany and is still sounding nice
14:41 <ELGono> welll actually i had my hands on it.. replace some old caps, some silver wires and rejust idle currents
14:42 <ELGono> we measured more than 800W into 2 ohm
14:42 *** siofwolves has joined #boinc
14:44 <ELGono> really nice work... lots of wires and handwork and nice design with floating working points.... works at low volume classA
14:44 <ELGono> i should make some new pictures ... less dusty :)
14:45 <ELGono> but for the moment i just counting hours of parts i ordered this morning for new preamp ... will work without feedback
14:47 <ELGono> and i couldn't resist and ordered 2 mundorf silver oil caps
14:47 <PovAddict> where is the amp now?
14:48 <ELGono> the only capicator in my whole D/A converter / preamp / poweramp line
14:48 <ELGono> just stand next to me pov
14:48 <PovAddict> quite a rare piece :)
14:48 <MTughan> I have a can of compressed air. :D
14:48 <ELGono> in the soldering corner ;)
14:49 <PovAddict> I could use that too MTughan
14:49 <ELGono> hehe i tell ya, it's no voodoo in caps
14:50 <ELGono> that one actually is for preamp safety and power amp as well
15:04 <Tank_Master> did I hear someone say power amp?
15:06 <ELGono> hehehe
15:06 *** Starfury^ has joined #boinc
15:07 <ELGono> if you ask me, i'm doing fine 20-80W
15:07 <ELGono> +with
15:09 *** freakazoid0223 has joined #boinc
15:09 <ELGono> the fostex is just a guest for restauration
15:10 <MTughan> restoration?
15:17 <hawmps> you want to see a thing of beauty, look inside a Krell amp.

15:22 <MTughan> lol
15:22 <PovAddict> that's mine
15:22 <MTughan> Take a look at the second one I posted. Half your download...
15:22 <PovAddict> how the hell do you have lower download than upload?
15:23 <PovAddict> I get such a round 3000kbps that I think the speedtest server is on my ISP :P
15:23 <MTughan> It's really slow today... I don't know.
15:23 <PovAddict> maybe someone in the network is downloading like mad
15:23 <ELGono> indeed jay, krell is phantastic, too
15:24 <MTughan> PovAddict: Using the server in Buenos Aires?
15:24 <ELGono> i also like the sound of big mcIntosh blocks
15:24 <PovAddict> yes the one and only
15:24 <MTughan> It's run by Telecentro, you're on Prime S.A. I don't know if they're related.
15:24 <ELGono> has something of american think big philosophy
15:25 <PovAddict> not sure how stuff is nowadays
15:26 *** Eythan has joined #boinc
15:26 <MTughan> Nice... About the same upload as me, but twice the download.
15:27 <MTughan> I think we're limited by the 10Mb Ethernet they ran to the rooms. Sure, the Internet's fast, but it could probably be faster.
15:29 <ELGono> just block spam'n'pr0n ...
15:29 <ELGono> and googleadz hehe
15:30 <MTughan> Ah, that I already do. :P
15:30 <ELGono> well globally ;)
15:30 <PovAddict> the first step in any optimization is finding the real bottleneck...
15:30 <MTughan> A filter on Doubleclick alone has matched 5000+ times since it's been in effect. Probably about a month at this point.
15:32 <MTughan> Another four filters around the 2000 mark.
15:32 <PovAddict> would be interesting if you could measure bandwidth
15:32 <PovAddict> how much BW is/would be wasted by ads
15:33 <ELGono> well some say more than 75% of internet traffic is generated/initiated by google
15:34 <MTughan> Interesting idea... http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=018713&cid=495
15:35 <PovAddict> ELGono: sounds bs
15:35 <ELGono> the green team of our community is just breaking down cause they lost the race of a solar powered wlan hotspot/repeater
15:35 <PovAddict> most websites are porn, most email traffic is spam
15:35 <MTughan> lol
15:36 <ELGono> pov i doubt it too
15:36 <PovAddict> and according to ISPs, a high percentage of total traffic is P2P
15:36 <ELGono> cause i still believe in filesharing ;)
15:36 <PovAddict> MTughan: my dad has something like that
15:36 <ELGono> i interpret that number as 75% of website requests
15:37 <ELGono> but not traffic
15:37 <PovAddict> yeah
15:38 <ELGono> i already had 100mbit line when napster appeared back in 99
15:38 <ELGono> and the internet then went slower and slower
15:41 <ELGono> but in general, there have been some improvements in the last years
15:41 <ELGono> europe-us connections are still accepable and australia made a huge step
15:43 <ELGono> well they have a new fibre (one was broken by a ship anchor) but not so much new members
15:44 <ELGono> cause spreading internet on the continent is difficult
