19:19 <Romulus> hmm... and is with no internet for like a month, xcamel
19:20 <MTughan> I want my credits. :P
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.
19:23 <xcamel> guess I should stick to the 12' table

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> http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/donation_history.php lol @ november
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"

23:44 <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.
23:54 <Rookie_69> I'll keep crunching with my old boxes... I can't afford any new ones.
23:54 *** freakazoid0223 has joined #boinc
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...
