02:25 <efc> moo TM

02:25 <Tank_Master> sup?

02:25 <Tank_Master> have you heard anything about QHD? (quad HD)?

02:26 <efc> Oh No, Sounds Like Another Cable I Have To Buy

02:26 <Tank_Master> lol

02:26 <Tank_Master> apparently OLED TVs can support it

02:26 <efc> what is it? more lines?

02:26 <Tank_Master> its 4x the res of HD

02:26 <Tank_Master> something like 3840x2160

02:27 <efc> Sweet

02:27 <Tank_Master> and

02:28 <Tank_Master> AND they can support it at 240Hz!

02:28 <efc> sheesh

02:28 <Tank_Master> yeah

02:28 <efc> then there's this.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_High_Definition_Video

02:28 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/n464q> (at en.wikipedia.org)

02:28 <Tank_Master> plus with no backlight, you can have them extreamly thin

02:28 <efc> There's a point where you can't see any of this detail on less than a 50 foot screen

02:29 <efc> like drive in theaters might want some of that suff

02:29 <Tank_Master> hehe

02:29 <Tank_Master> yeah

02:29 <Tank_Master> but ont he 100+ screans...

02:29 <efc> the data rate gets pretty insane, unless they compress the snot out of it, and then whats the point

02:30 <Tank_Master> yeah

02:30 <Tank_Master> still will be nice if consol games can use it...

02:30 <Tank_Master> or get a comp acrean with it

02:30 <efc> however, this all exceeds the needs of the pRon industry, so uptake will be slow

02:31 <Tank_Master> hehe

02:31 <Tank_Master> damn you pron!

02:32 <efc> At that res, it will probably get worse, not better

02:33 <Tank_Master> y?

02:33 <Tank_Master> nothing to the imagonation?

02:33 <efc> You don't want to see some things in more detail

02:33 <Tank_Master> hehe

02:34 *** MacG_ has joined #boinc

02:36 *** MacG has quit IRC

02:36 <efc> dad's new 50" is just a 720 and that seems fine, except for computer stuff where you can really never get enough

02:37 <Tank_Master> no, you can never get enough on the comp

02:37 <efc> like I could really use 4000 pix high for score editing

02:37 <Tank_Master> yeah

02:37 <efc> really more DPI than size but still

02:38 *** Eythan has joined #boinc

02:38 <Tank_Master> right, still more pixles, the better

02:38 <efc> I don't do enough of that to justify buying the dual 30" screens though hehe

02:38 <Tank_Master> bummer

02:39 <Tank_Master> thats what Id like to get

02:39 <Tank_Master> or 4 :P

02:39 <efc> Right now I wouldn't have the video power to push it anyway..

02:42 <Tank_Master> yeah

02:45 <efc> 2048x1536 on the GF4

02:46 <Tank_Master> thats what I run at now

02:46 <efc> What display?

02:47 <Tank_Master> 21" crt

02:47 <Tank_Master> @ 85Hz

02:47 <efc> Nivr

02:47 <efc> ce

02:56 <efc> 2560 x 1600 max on newer cards

03:01 <efc> and thats what the 30s run.. gee, glad I didn't buy one

03:01 <Tank_Master> hehe

03:01 <Tank_Master> yeah

03:04 <Tank_Master> faa

03:04 <Tank_Master> ill brb

03:04 <Tank_Master> I hate it when my router craps out when I start d/ling soemthing

03:04 *** Tank_Master has quit IRC

03:07 *** Tank_Master has joined #boinc

03:07 <Tank_Master> thats better

03:08 <efc> I oughter buy a Cisco 2600 for the parents place.. I think I've reached that level of complexity

03:09 <Tank_Master> LOL

03:09 <Tank_Master> how so?

03:09 <efc> or 2500.. they're like $20

03:09 <efc> its a shared modem connection

03:09 <efc> but no PC is ever really on all the time

03:09 <Tank_Master> ah

03:10 <efc> and now mom wants a computer, which will make it even more complicated

03:10 <efc> Unfortunately dial on demand doesn't work that great anymore since every program wants to constantly access the interne

03:10 <Tank_Master> yeah

03:11 <efc> a cisco might even be able to do that dual modem teaming stuff

03:11 <Tank_Master> that would be cool

03:13 <efc> that would be like drinking a chunky milkshake through two coffee stirrer straws

03:13 <Tank_Master> LOL

03:21 <Tank_Master> ill brb.. again

03:21 <Tank_Master> router craped out

17:01 <MTughan> Nope.

17:01 <Romulus> I guess pov is usually not got for very long, sethy

17:01 <PovAddict> no, I've only seen one or two of the harry potter movies

17:01 <sethy> ...

17:02 <sethy> 2 of the most legendary trilogy films, none of you have seen

17:02 <MTughan> I have all 6 Star Wars.

17:02 <sethy> what is this, 1/3 people have not seen matrix and lord of the trings?

17:02 <sethy> rings*

17:15 <MTughan> rofl, nice.

17:15 <sethy> but that explains where the bee's are going...

17:16 <Tank_Master> yeah

17:16 <Tank_Master> and why there arent as meny of them around anymore

17:17 <xcamel> 6.4.4 still has work fetch issues..

17:17 <Tank_Master> it also works with gpugrid differently

17:18 <Tank_Master> with it set to use all 4 coes, it runs 3 CPU apps and one gpu app

17:18 <Tank_Master> unless the CPU project is behind ahd runs in high priority mode

17:19 <Tank_Master> then it run 4 CPU apps AND the gpu app

17:19 <Tank_Master> quite strange

17:20 <PovAddict> sethy: the first reply is awesome

17:20 <PovAddict> "If I had known about this [paint thinner] I would've burnt down my house by now."

17:21 <Tank_Master> hehe

17:27 <PovAddict> " We got in the same situation on the 4th of July at my friend's house and I can sum up what happens with a simple math formula: 200 dollars of fireworks > 1 bee hive."

17:28 <Tank_Master> hehe

17:29 <xcamel> 136 bad stings

17:29 <Tank_Master> that all?

17:30 <xcamel> 64 dead bees from the initial blast..

17:33 <PovAddict> omg

17:33 <PovAddict> some idiot tried to get on phpmyadmin on my server

17:33 <PovAddict> (I don't even have it installed; but it tried like two dozen URLs)

17:33 <PovAddict> I put the attacker's IP on my browser

17:34 <PovAddict> I'm now on his router config page

17:34 <MTughan> rofl...

17:34 <MTughan> n00b indeed.

17:34 <PovAddict> if anyone wants to plink *or* have fun with his router...

17:34 <PovAddict> 41.234.127.21

17:35 <PovAddict> hmm I could load stuff on him

17:35 <MTughan> Apparently it's in Cairo, Egypt.

17:35 <PovAddict> install a DNS server on my computer, change his router config to use my IP as DNS server, make my DNS server reply to all hostname resolves with, again, my IP

17:36 <MTughan> Not exactly a secure setup, you're right... Two tries with the password.

17:36 <PovAddict> :D

17:36 <PovAddict> you're in?

17:36 <MTughan> Yep.

17:37 <DerMeister> That was easy - I'm in, too... Only on try necessary ;)

17:37 <MTughan> I tried a Linksys default password first, that's why it failed.

17:39 <DerMeister> I didn't even search for a default password - just guessed one

17:39 <xcamel> that's why I send you those sporks all the time...

17:39 <MTughan> I just know them, but they are easy to guess.

17:41 <MTughan> Hmm, now I can't connect anymore... Did someone just try a restart?

17:42 <DerMeister> I didn't do anything.

17:43 <MTughan> Hmm, I should check my access logs more often... Seems someone likes checking the Apache user manual on my system.

17:43 *** DerMeister has quit IRC

17:48 <MTughan> Wait... First thing they accessed: /robots.txt.

17:48 <xcamel> ossec would do that for you, and stick a fork into the intruders.

17:48 <PovAddict> are you logging user agents?

17:48 <MTughan> It's also an address in LA.

17:48 <MTughan> And no, but I should be. How do you enable that?

17:48 <PovAddict> it's probably already in the apache config, commented out

17:49 <CoderForLife> 'evenin'

17:49 <CoderForLife> hey Jay

17:49 <CoderForLife> hey Nic

17:49 <MTughan> Ah yes, I see it. Thanks.

17:50 <CoderForLife> hey Michael

17:50 <xcamel> like I said, check out ossec... it does all that for you...

17:50 <MTughan> 'lo CFL

17:50 <MTughan> xcamel: I might look into that, thanks.

17:50 <CoderForLife> ossec is your friend - get acquainted

17:51 <MTughan> Ah, one more thing in the IP lookup... It's owned by Google.

17:51 <PovAddict> then duh :)

17:51 <MTughan> I killed the /manual redirect anyway, doesn't need to be there.

17:51 <xcamel> it's a really simple install, and has a web interface.

17:52 <CoderForLife> it's da bomb

17:52 * CoderForLife endorses

17:52 <MTughan> Heh.

17:52 <xcamel> bad day for 'bag-o-cashivich' eh?

18:06 <CoderForLife> it's just big enough for the cabinets

18:06 <CoderForLife> yeah - no big thing

18:07 <MTughan> xcamel: Where is ossec's web interface?

18:16 <xcamel> oh - I saw something hilarious this morning....

18:16 <CoderForLife> I looked at buying a Kia once - I felt that they short-changed the amount of cardboard in the doors

18:17 <xcamel> a 'smart car' with aggressive snow tires...

18:17 <CoderForLife> this I GOTTA see

18:18 <xcamel> sitting at the light, in the dark and blowing snow...

18:18 <CoderForLife> I was watching for deer to jump out at me this morning, almost didn't see the Smart Car that passed me

18:18 <xcamel> I couldn't laugh too hard, as I would have put the jeep into a pole...

18:19 <CoderForLife> I wish I knew what special circumstances lead to my tab bug, so I could describe how to reproduce it

18:20 <CoderForLife> it's been awhile since it manifested itself

18:21 <CoderForLife> probably only occurs when the number of elapsed microseconds since last reboot is evenly divisible by a prime number

18:22 <CoderForLife> something simple

18:22 <xcamel> so.. did anyone check out the '72 Datsun B2100 that can do 11.5 secs in a quarter mile?

18:22 <MTughan> Hehe... That was awesome.

18:23 <CoderForLife> but... but... what's it's carbon footprint?

18:23 <xcamel> zero.
