19:20 <xcamel> lol

19:21 <MTughan> Holy crap... One machine in there has something like 250 tasks downloaded, and another 150 aborted. Only as I pass 400 tasks do I find completed WUs.

19:21 <xcamel> not mine..

19:21 <MTughan> It's an 8-core DP server @ 3.16GHz.

19:21 <MTughan> Windows Server 2003 x64.

19:22 <xcamel> english snooker is a pain

19:23 <MTughan> And while the resent task was just sent out a third time today, it's to an AMD Phenom 9850BE that seems to be quite stable.

21:43 * MTughan just finished reencoding a crapload of songs from AIFF to FLAC and MP3.

21:43 <PovAddict> how's the render?

21:43 <PovAddict> :P

21:43 <MTughan> Non-existent. :P

21:44 <MTughan> I was going to say that I would've used f**kload, as in a metric f**kload, but if I spelled it out, wdsmia would f**k me over.

21:44 <MTughan> xD

21:45 <MTughan> PovAddict knows what I'm talking about.

21:45 <PovAddict> who doesn't

21:45 <MTughan> 10kg of songs...

21:45 <Rookie_69> ... it's pronounced "truckload"...

21:46 <MTughan> Tr**kload?

21:46 <Rookie_69> Manure spreader load?

21:46 <MTughan> Maybe "ph**kload", but not "tr**kload".

21:47 <PovAddict> wdsmia is probably not amused

21:47 <Rookie_69> 10 kg of songs? That's some heavy tunes.

21:47 <MTughan> ;)

21:47 * wdsmia is lol

21:49 <MTughan> Would SOAD be considered heavy tunes? Because maybe I do have literally 10kg worth of songs.

21:49 *** desti has quit IRC

21:49 <MTughan> Nope, I can only claim 2.36kg worth of tunes... That being the weight of the Mac.

21:50 *** desti has joined #boinc

21:53 <MTughan> WTF? Apparently the Core Duo series are just rebranded Pentium M procs...

21:55 <Soul_keeper> no

21:55 <Soul_keeper> similar tech tho

21:56 <MTughan> It was a derivative of the Pentium M architecture and not related to the Core microarch.

22:11 <Rookie_69> Cores and Cores light?

22:13 <Soul_keeper> is it legal to sell/buy cloroform ?

22:13 <MTughan> Is chloroform still used?

22:14 <Rookie_69> Don't plants use it every day?

22:14 <MTughan> That's chlorophyll.

22:14 <Rookie_69> Maybe that's chlorophyll...

22:14 <Soul_keeper> that's what they put on the rags to make women pass out right ?

22:15 <MTughan> I guess that can be one use...

22:15 <Rookie_69> The original date-rape drug.

22:15 <Soul_keeper> yeah i want some, just incase

22:16 <Rookie_69> Try gin first.

22:18 <Rookie_69> It's never worked for me, so it might work for you.

22:19 <Soul_keeper> nah

22:19 <Soul_keeper> i just want to sneak up on them from behind and make them pass out, then lock them in my closet

22:19 <Rookie_69> Matbe ether was the first...

22:20 <Soul_keeper> the  blackjack

22:20 <Rookie_69> Stone club.

22:21 <Soul_keeper> A blackjack is a small, easily-concealed club consisting of a leather-wrapped lead weight attached to the end of a leather-wrapped coil-spring or rigid shaft, with a lanyard or strap on the end opposite the weight.

22:22 <Soul_keeper> cause instant unconsciousness if you smack um on the back of the head

22:23 * Rookie_69 thinks Soul_keeper may be a closet heterosexual...

22:24 <Soul_keeper> when the game theif the dark project came out you could   sneak around in the shadows knocking them unconscious with the blackjack, then drag their bodies out of site ...

22:27 <Soul_keeper> 10yrs ago, they don't make games like that anymore

22:35 <PovAddict> S@H sent a mass email

22:35 <PovAddict> begging for money

22:36 <Soul_keeper> lol

22:37 <Soul_keeper> they'll probably get it ...

22:37 <Rookie_69> Please sir... Some more?

22:39 <PovAddict> lol @ november

22:39 <Romulus> <> (at

22:40 <Soul_keeper> a single rich person could easily multiply that income ...

22:41 <Rookie_69> I'm single, but definitely not rich.

22:42 <Soul_keeper> gimme your e-mail

22:42 <Soul_keeper> i want to ask you for money too :)

22:44 <Rookie_69> Glutton for rejection?

22:45 <Soul_keeper> lol "gee i'm sorry sir, i don't have daddy issues"

23:24 <MTughan> Hehe... My RAC on Milkyway is 404.

23:31 <Rookie_69> Forget to run it for a while?

23:32 <wdsmia> 34K more in rac and you will be up with me

23:33 * Rookie_69 stuffs his 1171 RAC in the cracks in the couch.

23:44 <Rookie_69> Oh yeah... Try to confuse me by using a different handle on BOINC.

23:47 <MTughan> Rookie_69: Yeah, I haven't really been crunching any BOINC on the Mac over the past couple days, because I've needed it for other applications.

23:49 <Rookie_69> You mean computers can be used for something not BOINC-related?

23:50 *** novacrust has joined #boinc

23:50 <MTughan> Encoding music or videos, yeah.

23:50 <Rookie_69> Hmm...

23:50 <MTughan> But the new lappie has been crunching away at ABC 24/7 for quite a while now.

23:51 *** freakazoid0223 has quit IRC

23:51 <MTughan> At least for 12 days now, since the last reboot.

23:52 <MTughan> And then I hope to add a third computer to my arsenal over the holidays.

23:52 <PovAddict> and that's when I'll get completely pwned

23:52 <Rookie_69> Hoping for a gift?

23:52 <MTughan> I'm pwning you already with one laptop.

23:52 <PovAddict> lies

23:52 <MTughan> Rookie_69: That and some self-gifts. :P

23:53 <PovAddict> I'm doing fairly well

23:53 <PovAddict> for now

23:53 <MTughan> 3828.46 yesterday in ABC alone. There's only one computer crunching ABC here.

23:53 <MTughan>

23:53 <Romulus> <> (at

23:54 <Rookie_69> I'll keep crunching with my old boxes... I can't afford any new ones.

23:56 <MTughan> PovAddict: Over the past week, I've gotten more credits in ABC than you've gotten overall for every day except one.

23:56 <PovAddict> >.<

23:57 <MTughan> Rookie_69: Nice array, but older computers, eh?

23:57 <Rookie_69> The newest is a PentiumD 820.

23:58 <Rookie_69> The oldest still in use is a P4-2.4

23:59 <PovAddict> just did some tweaks on my Pentium IV

23:59 <PovAddict> apparently it had been crunching the same two PG WUs for a few days

23:59 <Rookie_69> I built it 6 or 7 years ago.

23:59 <PovAddict> they don't checkpoint, and it was never running for long enough to finish them...
