04:20 <CoderForLife> morning folks

04:22 <FreeLarry58> hey DerMeister don't be discouraged - i just use to put some machines together as hobby and then had to find some use for them

04:23 <CoderForLife> brb  breakfast

04:23 <FreeLarry58> k

04:23 <DerMeister> Well - If I had the money for it, maybe I would do the same :)

04:27 <FreeLarry58> most of these machines were less than a 1000 when i put them together

04:27 <FreeLarry58> and a few a little as 200 to 350

04:28 <ELGono> i just spent all my money for parts to build new audio electronics

05:02 <chanueting> I would like to know need I input a hostname and password under Advance - select computer?

05:02 <CoderForLife> leaving hostname and password blank will select localhost, I think

05:03 <ELGono> or just localhost in host field

05:03 <ELGono> no pw iirc

05:03 <CoderForLife> right

05:03 <CoderForLife> I usually leave both empty for localhost

05:03 <ELGono> never tried that ;)

05:04 <CoderForLife> else I use IP address and password (if needed) to access a remote machine

05:04 <ELGono> for remote hosts start remote station with -allow_remote_gui

07:28 *** ComradeHaz has joined #boinc

07:29 <ComradeHaz> Hi guys, is there a way to make BOINC project run at 'below normal' priority instead of 'low'.

07:29 <ComradeHaz> *projects

07:38 <DerMeister> I don't think so - except using Process Explorer to adjust the priority manually once the science application has started.

07:59 <PovAddict> ComradeHaz: change BOINC code to set that priority to science apps, and recompile it :)

07:59 <KathrynM> oh is that all PovAddict

07:59 <KathrynM> :-)

08:00 <KathrynM> PovAddict, did you see DA's response to my "the scheduler is buggered up" email?

08:04 <PovAddict> yes, I was planning to reply that email sending it to you only :D

08:04 <KathrynM> lol

08:05 <PovAddict> Jm7 must be really trying to resist "I told you so!"

08:05 <KathrynM> ya think?

08:05 <KathrynM> Amazing how he was right.

08:05 <KathrynM> He knows the scheduler better than anyone, including DA.

08:06 <PovAddict> ooo simap WUs

08:06 <KathrynM> yeah.

16:31 <MTughan> Well, Firefox 3.2 comes with a new feature to drag tabs out and become new windows, as in Google Chrome. I seem to be tripping it rather regularly though...

16:35 <DerMeister> opera has this feature already for ages :P

16:35 <MTughan> Maybe. I don't use Opera though. :P

16:35 <MTughan> I have it installed for website testing, but that's it.

18:35 <xcamel> fc 10 is a whole new bird..

18:35 <PovAddict> oh I think it was on AQUA@Home actually

18:35 <MTughan> F8 works*

18:35 <MTughan> And yes, it was on AQUA.

18:43 <KathrynM> since it just crunches, maybe I'll leave it on F7

18:43 <KathrynM> in mine, at least 10^5

18:43 * KathrynM notes she has no idea but 10^5 seemed like a good number

18:43 <MTughan> 10^5 = 10,000.

21:05 <MTughan> Oh, January 8th... Not bad.

21:06 <Soul_keeper> yeah supposedly

21:06 <MTughan> Well, when AMD will announce their availability. As for retail availability, that can vary.

21:08 * PovAddict imagines BOINCers camping at the shop entrance

21:08 <PovAddict> like gamers waiting for xbox360s and PS3s

21:08 <MTughan> I might be, depending on if I see any reviews before their release.

21:11 <MTughan> The AM2+ boards aren't too expensive right now, and support DDR2. No telling whether the AM3 boards will. They may go with DDR3 only, which may be too expensive for me.

21:12 <Soul_keeper> talk of DDR3 in mid next year

21:13 <MTughan> Yep... "But currently Socket AM2+ processors (Code Name: Deneb 45nm) are scheduled for an early to mid December 2008 launch which automatically pushes back the release of Socket AM3 to late Q1 2009."

21:13 <Soul_keeper> they'd likely release it whenever enough people "demand" it

21:13 <efc> Ominously named, since Deneb is likely to go hypernova and turn into a black hole..

21:14 <MTughan> AM3 procs will support DDR2 or DDR3 memory, it just depends on the board. You're also able to use AM3 procs with an AM2 or AM2+ board, although not the other way around.

21:15 <MTughan> Yeah, looks like AM3 won't release until February anyway, so that probably kills it for my new comp.

21:15 <Soul_keeper> Socket A was the best socket ever :)

21:17 <MTughan> Are AM2 procs compatible with Socket A MBs?

21:18 <MTughan> Apparently not... The compatibility only seems to exist in the AMx series sockets.
