04:37 * efc still trying to snag that 24" HP IPS panel
04:38 <CoderForLife> is it diffcult?
04:40 <efc> is kinda pricey, seeing if they have any deals
04:40 <efc> $624 from HP (almost $700 after s/h/tax), but IPS is a rarity
04:41 <efc> sometimes its worth it to pay too much and just get it over with

06:41 <PovAddict> I was BOINC-less for 6 hours...
06:42 <PovAddict> I really should try to set it up to start on boot, but it's tricky in the way I have BOINC installed...
06:42 <PovAddict> and... the UPS
06:42 <PovAddict> off to w$%& now that I got Internet to work
06:43 <ELGono> start on power up is dangerous
06:43 <PovAddict> why?
06:43 <ELGono> better to have an ups or delayed switched on
06:43 <PovAddict> well, till I get a UPS, this works
06:43 <ELGono> if power is down for a while and comes back, nearly all devices recharge their caps
06:44 <ELGono> so sinus is flattened
06:44 <ELGono> lower voltage = higher current
06:44 <ELGono> i had 2 PC's so far started up in fire&smoke after power went back on
06:44 <PovAddict> !
06:45 <ELGono> this setting is recommended for ups use only
06:45 <ELGono> they mostly have a voltage/current regulator
06:46 <ELGono> but without ups its better to switch on pc when everything has stabilized ... so few seconds after re-power-on
06:46 <ELGono> mostly i wait 5 mins for the next 2 short outages then hehehe
06:48 <ELGono> really need to buy batteries for my ups

09:13 *** Nickuwo has quit IRC
09:35 <PovAddict> I want to configure it like this:
09:36 <PovAddict> immediately after the outage, stop BOINC, so it uses less power and the battery lasts longer
09:36 <PovAddict> a few minutes later, if power isn't back yet, initiate clean shutdown
09:37 <PovAddict> if there is any way to call a shell script on a power outage and when power is back, I can do the rest :)

22:14 <MTughan> xcamel: That story about the HS building burned? That's not Toronto, but a suburb. Toronto's offered to help though.
22:14 <MTughan> And the official figure last I heard was 130 today, not 180-200 as of yesterday. Still not good, but somewhat better.
22:15 <MTughan> And I guess no one noticed the Toronto stock exchange was down the day before...
