00:18 <FreeLarry58> sounds a bit like old time D&D game updated to comp realtime internet play
00:18 <FreeLarry58> with one member hosting and being realtime DM
00:18 <FreeLarry58> just different titles
00:19 <MTughan> What's D&D?
00:19 <FreeLarry58> dungeon and dragons
00:19 <MTughan> Ah, okay.
00:19 <FreeLarry58> or maybe world of warcraft more apt nowdays
00:19 <MTughan> I suppose that's possible. I still don't really get the reference though.
00:20 <FreeLarry58> think it poking at us old farts
00:20 <MTughan> Heh.
00:20 <FreeLarry58> haven't played d&d since i was 23 -- lets see 28 yrs ago
00:21 <FreeLarry58> dang has it been that long already
00:21 <MTughan> lol
00:22 <MTughan> 1980?
00:22 <FreeLarry58> around then
00:22 <MTughan> That's 28 years.
00:22 <FreeLarry58> was on my first shipboard assignment then and lots of time at sea
00:23 <MTughan> Wow... My hard drive seems to be making a lot of vibration. I just touch it slightly, and I can feel the difference in the floor.
00:23 <FreeLarry58> bearing probably going -- get it backed up asap
00:23 <MTughan> That's the odd thing. It's a backup drive. And it's not that old.
00:24 <MTughan> Or rather, the ironic thing.
00:24 <FreeLarry58> doesn't matter if slight imblance exist on disk weight will cause rapid bearing failure
00:25 <FreeLarry58> especially if 7200 rpm or faster
00:26 <MTughan> Oh, manufactured in November 2006. Older than I thought.
00:26 <MTughan> Anyway, would the fact that it's mounted in an external enclosure magnify that?
00:26 <FreeLarry58> it could
00:26 <MTughan> It's a Western Digital 500GB 7200rpm SATA drive.
00:27 <FreeLarry58> have noticed external drives subjected to a lot more abuse so more damage can occure
00:27 <MTughan> I can always see if I can hook it up to a SATA port sometime soon to get SMART information.
00:27 <FreeLarry58> true
00:28 <MTughan> Enclosure has eSATA ports, but I don't have anything with those available.
00:28 <MTughan> Or more than one SATA port that can be converted.
00:28 <FreeLarry58> aint that the way of it ;)
00:28 <MTughan> And seems that SMART isn't supported over USB.
00:28 <FreeLarry58> nope
00:29 <MTughan> I've been thinking about getting a bigger hard drive anyway, so I could back it up to that if I do.
00:29 <FreeLarry58> that is true
00:30 <MTughan> And I'm usually careful with my hard drives, internal or external.
00:30 <FreeLarry58> lol i try to be (looks at two dents in walls from flying drives0
00:30 <MTughan> rofl
00:31 <MTughan> Well, I usually try. Sometimes I forget. (looks at the three dead 2.5" drives)
00:31 <FreeLarry58> ahh notebooks
00:31 <MTughan> Two have hardware issues, I think the third might just have a corrupted sector, but I haven't tried again.
00:31 <FreeLarry58> i wont talk about them
00:32 <MTughan> Yeah, I can get angry... Keyboards will last my anger. Hard drives... Not so much.
00:32 <MTughan> Although the first one was because my laptop slipped off my binder in school and fell two feet to the floor.
00:33 <MTughan> I've done worse with the Lenovo (actually accidentally tossed it about three feet down onto really hard carpet), but it's been fine.
00:33 * FreeLarry58 looks at three kbs that are in at least two pieces in corner - nope hd last better here
00:33 <FreeLarry58> ouch to lappy
00:33 <MTughan> Heh, I just break the feet off of them. I like the propping feet up, but you know I've broken it in when one's missing.
00:34 <MTughan> Now, it was in sleep at the time too, so that helped.
00:34 <FreeLarry58> daughters laptop looks like its been used as childs toy -- because the granddaughter thought it was one
00:34 <MTughan> Although the battery came out, so it shut off.
00:34 <MTughan> Yeah, that gets expensive...
00:35 <FreeLarry58> very at least it operated enough for a backup of hd so data wasn't lost - less expensive to replace lappy then repair as missing keys and screen only 80% functional
00:35 <FreeLarry58> we won't talk about what i saw in the ports
00:36 <MTughan> 80% functional: max 80% brightness, or 20% dead pixels?
00:36 <FreeLarry58> 80% of screen as cracked in several places
00:36 <MTughan> Eee...
00:36 <MTughan> And not the PC.
00:37 <FreeLarry58> just missing keys -- wonder if the peanut butter inside help
00:37 <FreeLarry58> helped
00:39 <MTughan> Worst I've ever had with a laptop is on the Mac, a sign of a failing motherboard... Hard as hell to boot the machine, and when you get it to boot, don't touch the screen. It has to be in exactly the right angle.
00:39 <MTughan> Or it kernel panicked.
00:39 <FreeLarry58> yuck
00:39 <MTughan> It was bad news for BOINC crunching. That motherboard has since been junked.
00:40 <FreeLarry58> ah well think its time to take one last look at the 6 inches of snw here then lay down
00:40 <FreeLarry58> &nn all

17:05 <Rookie_69> Hi, Jay.
17:07 <xcamel> 'lo Glenn
17:10 <xcamel> temps dropped to 15F with the snow.. burrrrr...
17:10 <Rookie_69> That seems to be my current temp. It's chilly out.
17:11 <Rookie_69> Oops... that's tomorrow morning... 8F here now.

17:17 <xcamel> arf.
17:20 <efc> I chickened out on buying that monitor again last night
17:20 <efc> Got to reading and there were a lot of people complaining about it.. but then, they tend to complain about everything..
17:21 <Rookie_69> Blood pressure monitor? You really should...
17:22 <efc> I did have a dream about checking my blood pressure last night.
17:22 <efc> Unfortunately, it did NOT involve nurses etc
17:24 <efc> I'm still looking for other Roombas to have mine bred to, btw
17:24 <Rookie_69> Dad always used to show high blood pressure when the nurse took it... then one day the doctor took it and it was normal. I guess the nurse just excited him.
17:24 <efc> You'd think that would umm, lower it
17:25 <Rookie_69> It lowers the blood, not the pressure. ;-)
17:26 <efc> If you increase the area of confinement, witht he same volume of fluid, the pressure should reduce?
17:26 <efc> I never really studied all that Pascals pressure junk
17:27 <Rookie_69> Cooking with Pasquale?
17:32 <Rookie_69> Don't remember him using a pressure cooker, but it's possible.

18:22 <sethy> :(
18:22 <Rookie_69> Excuses...
18:22 <CoderForLife> aren't you glad you stopped in sethy to get all this work to do?
18:22 <sethy> yep
18:22 <sethy> but i had a question in mind
18:22 <CoderForLife> ok, you earend it
18:22 <CoderForLife> er earned
18:22 <Rookie_69> Now he wants us to think...
18:23 <Rookie_69> 42!
18:23 <sethy> mainly aimed at people who was active in the new year channel last year/this year
18:24 <sethy> am i going to be the main feature of the year, i.e. most active and stuff
18:24 <sethy> ?
18:24 <sethy> i was admin of freenode for the day :D
18:25 * sethy looks at PovAddict
18:25 <PovAddict> is it open yet?
18:25 <sethy> i dont know
18:25 <PovAddict> nope
18:25 <sethy> but when it does, please notify me imediately
18:25 <PovAddict> still redirects to #defocus
18:25 <sethy> i'm going to be the bot again :D
18:26 <PovAddict> I gotta write a bot to log the channel with millisecond timestamps
18:27 <sethy> i have many things to do
18:27 <Rookie_69> You need another channel for New Years??? What's wrong with this one?
18:27 <PovAddict> Rookie_69: the other one has hundreds of users usually
18:27 <PovAddict> and it goes insane
18:27 <Rookie_69> Like I said...
18:27 <PovAddict> lots of people IRCing drunk adds to the fun
18:28 <PovAddict> as soon as it's new years in any timezone in the world, the channel gets a few dozen messages per second
18:28 <xcamel> bitbucket drunks are not funny
18:29 <sethy> and i am the main feature of the channel :D
18:29 <sethy> do we still have logs from last year nicolas
18:29 <sethy> ?
18:30 <PovAddict> I might have then somewhere
18:30 <PovAddict> cba search
18:30 <sethy> cba digging out hard drive
18:30 <PovAddict> and for that channel 1 second accuracy of timestamps isn't enough
18:31 <sethy> neither is milliseconds for us guys in GMT
18:31 <sethy> of you guys in PST
18:31 <sethy> or*
18:37 <sethy> PovAddict: used VLC Lately?

18:37 <PovAddict> yes sethy
18:37 <sethy> also, VLC has a hat on the cone (christmas)
18:38 <Rookie_69> VLC plays almost most videos:-)
18:39 <MTughan> And for those it doesn't, there's MPlayer.
18:39 <sethy> VLC plays my mom
18:39 <MTughan> Or iTunes/QuickTime (for DRM'd files :( )
18:39 <MTughan> lol sethy
18:39 <sethy> VLC does DRM files amrite?
18:39 <MTughan> No, it can't.
18:40 <sethy> :(
18:40 <MTughan> Well, I guess it depends on the DRM. I was thinking FairPlay myself, because it's the one that I've gotten most intimate with over the past few days.
18:40 <MTughan> Think stripping it from 80+ songs by importing into iMovie, exporting, then converting to FLAC.
18:41 <sethy> FairGame?
18:41 <Romulus> Title: FairPlay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)
18:41 <sethy> *.XM files FTW
18:41 * sethy looks at PovAddict
18:41 <sethy> amrite?
18:42 <MTughan> I like FLAC myself. I had problems with OGG, although that could've been the encoder.
18:44 <sethy> FLAC are nice
18:44 <CoderForLife> I'm going to wander off
18:44 <CoderForLife> gn all
18:44 <MTughan> Night CFL.
18:44 <MTughan> sethy: Yeah, but just make sure you have lots of space. About 35MB per file.
18:45 <sethy> night cfl
18:45 <sethy> yeah i exported some Rage into high level flac
18:45 <sethy> came out about 29MB
18:46 <MTughan> I hope to move all of my library to either OGG or FLAC at some point. Most of it is 160kbps MP3 right now.
18:46 <sethy> movies belong in AVI
18:47 <MTughan> What codec?
18:47 <sethy> i dunno
18:47 <sethy> just nice AVI
18:48 <MTughan> AVI is just a container format, can contain anything.
18:50 <sethy> your mom?
18:50 <Romulus> hmm... Romulus's mom is 403'd, sethy
18:50 <MTughan> I like Xvid. Good compression, seems to be good quality.

20:12 <efc> we just need a silicon-based life form to vomit all over a PCB for us
20:14 <efc> I have seen some displays that are LED backlit but don't really know what that gets you
20:14 <efc> also they are like $3000
20:18 <Rookie_69> Airplane??? Surely you're kidding!
20:25 <Rookie_69> Surely you jest... No, I'm serious... and quit calling me shirley!
20:25 <Soul_keeper> xcamel, got the latest 2.8.6 compiled with pthreads support
20:26 <Soul_keeper> apparently the terminal i use doesn't support threading :( likely wouldn't be extremely difficult to code it in i guess
20:27 <Soul_keeper> i'd been running 1600x1200 for like 4 or 5yrs ....
20:27 <Soul_keeper> apparently my monitor does 2048x1536
20:28 <Soul_keeper> :)
20:31 <xcamel> I see
20:34 <Rookie_69> I can't.
20:34 <Rookie_69> Letters too small.
20:34 <Soul_keeper> hmmm so the difference between 2560x1600 and 2048x1536 is about 25% screensize ?
20:35 <Soul_keeper> well pixels*
20:35 <Soul_keeper> 2560x1600=4096000 2048x1536=3145728
20:36 <PovAddict> LOL @ silicon life vomit
20:37 <Soul_keeper> 23.2% more realestate
20:41 <Romulus> Title: QDB: Quote #294362 (at qdb.us)
20:44 <Soul_keeper> 3.5" more horizontal screenspace and 2.5" more verticle by moving my res from 2560x1600 to 2048x1536
20:48 <Soul_keeper> 39% more realestate going from 1600x1200 to 2048x1536
20:49 <Soul_keeper> 3.5" more horizontal screenspace and 2.5" more verticle by moving my res from 1600x1200 to 2048x1536 (EDIT)
20:49 *** granpa_paul has quit IRC
20:51 <Soul_keeper> so basically i'm talking to myself
20:53 <PovAddict> yup
20:57 <Rookie_69> I'm not really listening.
20:57 <xcamel> ditto
20:59 <xcamel> laterz..
20:59 <Soul_keeper> i don't like any of you anyways
21:09 <Rookie_69> I don' treally like any of us either.
21:10 * wdsmia sends Rookie_69 a space
21:10 <Rookie_69> I don't really like any of us either.
21:11 <Rookie_69> TY.
21:14 *** granpa_paul has joined #boinc
21:16 <Rookie_69> I bought a 19" crt and then realized that it took up the whole desk...
21:17 <Rookie_69> I replaced it with a 19"led monitor...
21:17 <Rookie_69> Il have to wear reading glasses tosee it now.
21:17 <Rookie_69> ... to see...
21:18 <Rookie_69> Well, I have to wear reading glasses to see the keyboard at least.
21:19 <wdsmia> arms to short to type?
21:26 <Rookie_69> Maybe...
21:34 *** desti_T2 has joined #boinc
21:35 <Rookie_69> Desk too small to fit monitor on.
21:47 *** granpa_paul has quit IRC

21:59 <Rookie_69> Thermo is sitting at about -11C. Brr.
22:22 <wdsmia> &nn Glenn
22:22 <Romulus> Live long and crunch!
22:22 <Rookie_69> NN all.
22:22 *** Rookie_69 has quit IRC
22:32 <efc> reremoo
22:32 *** granpa_paul has joined #boinc
22:33 <efc> aww, I missed the monitor discussion
22:33 <efc> Sweet, I have a quote enshrined for eternity
22:38 <Soul_keeper> yeah can't believe i was using 40% less desktop for 5yrs and didn't even know it
22:38 <efc> I could use about 4000 vertical pixels for music editing
22:45 <efc> the 1280x1024 I have right now is good enough most of the time, though
22:46 <efc> funny how 640x480 used to be plenty
22:46 <PovAddict> I have 1280x1024
22:47 <Soul_keeper> i'm running 2048x1536 right now, i didn't even know it existed i'd read specs somewhere and just see the "2" figured there was only one step over 1600x1200 and what not ...
22:47 <efc> what refresh rate at that res?
22:47 <efc> That has to be getting close to the limit of what the analog VGA connector can take
22:47 <Soul_keeper> i ran 1280x1024 on my 17" for 5yrs before i got this 21" 5yrs ago
22:48 <Soul_keeper> only 60Hz tho at 2048x1536 but still ok
22:49 <efc> Can't remember how high my Iiyama went, but 1152x864 was the sweet spot
22:49 <efc> at least 1600x1200
22:49 <efc> the Iiyama had the 5xBNC inputs, but I never ended up using them
22:50 <Soul_keeper> interesting
22:50 <efc> used for workstations like Suns
22:51 <efc> i thought i'd get a Sparcstation
22:51 <Soul_keeper> those are for rich kids :)
22:51 *** Tank_Master has quit IRC
22:51 <efc> well, like a Sparcstation 1+ :p like a 33 mhz 386
22:52 <efc> totally kick butt at the time though, like $20,000
22:52 <Soul_keeper> heh
22:52 <efc> 64 meg of ram
22:52 <efc> a lot in 1990
22:53 <PovAddict> heh I was still in the womb
22:55 <efc> maybe I oghter hook my 17"s as duals again (I got dad the same model as I have)
22:55 <Soul_keeper> http://sterlingdesktops.com/screenshots/ss-02-12-08.jpg
22:55 <Soul_keeper> that's the difference is size
22:56 <Soul_keeper> old 1600x1200 screenshot at full size
22:56 <PovAddict> you use window folding a lot :)
22:57 <PovAddict> are you using any interesting window manager?
22:59 <efc> One thing I'd heard is a good setup is a 30" 2560x1200, with two 5:4 20" 1600x1200's turned on their sides
23:00 <efc> What the heck, SGA is a rerun
23:03 <granpa_paul> that does sound good, efc
23:03 <efc> Of course this setup will cost you at least $2000 + whatever video card array could drive it :)
23:03 <granpa_paul> trying to figure out what to use next, have a 24 and 1 195:4 turned
23:03 <granpa_paul> oops 19"
23:03 <granpa_paul> 1280x1024
23:03 <Soul_keeper> they are talking about how CRTs work on history channel "modern marvels"
23:03 <efc> On the history channel, ouch
23:03 <Soul_keeper> lol
23:04 <Soul_keeper> talking about LCDs now on history chan
23:06 <efc> apparently there were some much higher res LCDs produced years ago
23:08 <wdsmia> Hmm broken heat sink mount that explains why the cpu was running at 82C
23:09 <efc> 3840 x 2400 produced several years ago but none anymore
23:10 <MTughan> As I know, no video cards can drive that alone. It'd probably need two inputs.
23:10 <MTughan> &math 3840 / 2
23:10 <Romulus> MTughan: 1920
23:10 <Soul_keeper> yeah those higher res ones have a catch tho
23:11 <Soul_keeper> you have to use dual dvi to run them
23:11 <efc> probably a quintuple-link DVI
23:11 <Soul_keeper> a special card like the matrox parhelia
23:11 <MTughan> Can dual-link DVI run it, or do you mean two DVI connections?
23:11 <Soul_keeper> so it's basically like having a several monitors just not being divided
23:12 <Soul_keeper> i'm not too sure
23:12 <efc> So regular cards with a DVI don't do dual link DVI? Like my old Geforce4 would appear to be dual link..
23:12 <MTughan> Hmm, apparently dual-link can drive 3840x2400.
23:12 <MTughan> Although at only 33Hz.
23:13 <efc> its got the pins anyway
23:13 <MTughan> 2560x1600 is the highest a single DVI connection can drive at 60Hz.
23:14 <efc> it "only" goes to 2048x1536
23:14 <MTughan> Can drive that at 75Hz.
23:14 <Soul_keeper> "Most display cards with a DVI connector are capable of supporting the 3840x2400 resolution. However, the maximum refresh rate will be limited by the number of DVI links that are connected to the monitor. 1, 2, or 4 DVI connectors are used to drive the monitor using various tile configurations. Only the IBM T221-DG5 and IDTech MD22292B5 support the use of dual-link DVI ports using an external converter box."
23:15 <Soul_keeper> viewsonic briefly made one too
23:15 <MTughan> So yes, at least two DVI dual-link connections would be needed to drive 3840x2400. 4 single-link connections oughta do it too.
23:15 <MTughan> For a usable 60Hz, that is.
23:17 <Soul_keeper> yeah less than 60 would probably make your eyes bug out
23:17 <Soul_keeper> anyways pizza time here :)
23:18 <efc> maybe we should just get normal pRon instead of gawking at 3840x2400 monitors :P
23:20 <efc> It would be cool if you could build up the monitor out of tiles, and make it as big as you wanted
23:20 <efc> Hard to make them seamless but maybe possible
23:41 <Soul_keeper> :)
23:41 <Soul_keeper> i'm surprised they never made that halographic light stuff work
23:42 <efc> I heard somebody was actually going to sell a 3d display
23:42 <Soul_keeper> where an image is just projected into the air
23:43 <efc> I think the volumetric spinning spiral thingies have been around a while but they never sell them
23:43 <Soul_keeper> i saw a video game like that in an arcade once
