02:27 <Soul_keeper> apparently newegg ships on sundays :)

02:27 <ChristmasCoder> just get a monitor

02:28 <Soul_keeper>  this was a pretty good guide

02:28 * ChristmasCoder thinks efc'c quest for a monitor is starting to approach his wall whining

02:29 <Soul_keeper> i gave up on wanting an lcd once i figured out my CRT had one higher resolution i never knew about :)

02:29 <Soul_keeper> like having a new monitor

02:29 <ChristmasCoder> there ya go

02:29 <efc> I read the anand guide

02:30 <ChristmasCoder> "and"?

02:30 <efc> It was pretty noncommital. It mentioned the one I want. Nothing about the QC issues it may have.

02:30 <Soul_keeper> damnit i burnt the bulb up on my brand new pen light :(

02:30 <Soul_keeper> left it on in my pocket for like an hour

02:31 <Soul_keeper> was using it to search for a motherboard manual in my closet ...

02:32 <Soul_keeper> appears i can max out my seconday system with 4GB of ddr2 for under 50 bucks

02:34 <Soul_keeper> i think most all the TN screens are pretty much the same

02:34 <Soul_keeper> they look the same in the store atleast ...

02:34 <Soul_keeper> anyways goodnight

02:34 <ChristmasCoder> gn

02:35 <efc> The thing with this one, its an IPS

02:35 <efc> thats the only thing that justifies it being > $600 instead of < $400

02:39 <efc> that was a thought too, take the next notch up, my video card can't do that one though

02:40 * efc clubs CFL! He tried to take mah money!

02:40 <ChristmasCoder> I love clubbing

02:40 <ChristmasCoder> the dancing

02:41 <efc> I was in a similar situation last year with a 24" Sammy that I didn't get. Saw it in a store and it was fairly bad.

03:00 <efc> I think I like this $18 a month option better

03:01 <efc> I think the dollar will collapse before that lease would be up

03:08 <yoyo[RKN]> is it possible to copy the whole boinc data folder to an other PC and continue there? I tested it with version 5.x but never with 6.x.

03:09 <DerMeister> It should wourk as long as the platform is the same.

03:10 <yoyo[RKN]> thx, was my assumption

03:10 <DerMeister> But I guess both computers would end with the same host id - might be a problem if the client on the old computer is started again

03:15 <ChristmasCoder> well - I'm going to try sleeping again

03:15 <ChristmasCoder> re-gn

03:16 * efc is closing on clicking

03:17 <yoyo[RKN]> how does a cuda works on Boinc, e.g. for SETI? Does the wu run only on GPU and nothing runs on the CPU?

03:19 <efc> I would think the cuda client would require a small amount of CPU support but leave enough to run a CPU client

03:19 <efc> But I don't really know.. can't imagine people being happy idling the CPUs though

03:20 *** Eythan has quit IRC

03:20 <yoyo[RKN]> if I'm running boinc GPU and CPU should be used. But I'm not sure how this is hadled by boinc.

03:21 <efc> I would think the GPUs would appear as additional client instances/threads

03:22 <efc> thats what I was going to do with the FPGA project

03:23 *** siof has joined #boinc

03:23 <yoyo[RKN]> but is this really the case, that boinc runs 3 wus in parallel on a cuda coreDuo?

03:23 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

03:23 <desti> depends on the project and your settings

03:23 *** siof is now known as siofwolves

03:23 <yoyo[RKN]> I can configure it for e.g. seti?

03:23 <desti> seti runs gpu OR cpu

08:09 * PovAdct_w wishes he could use AmazonMP3

08:10 <KathrynM> night night

08:10 <ChristmasCoder> any suggestions as to what I should get?  I'm thinking "Lips of an Angel" by Hinter

08:11 <KathrynM> I just spent a 25 dollar gift certificate at amazon.

08:11 * ChristmasCoder can't find Night Night as an MP3

08:11 <KathrynM> books totaled 16.  shipping, 60

08:11 <KathrynM> damn international shipping.

08:12 * PovAdct_w 's watch broke

08:12 <PovAdct_w> KathrynM: that's some insane shipping price

08:12 <ChristmasCoder> Mine broke 3 years ago - been asking Santa for one each year

08:13 <PovAdct_w> you've been watchless since then?

08:13 <ChristmasCoder> Santa is not in the watch business, apparently

08:13 <ChristmasCoder> I bought a Mickey Mouse Christmas watch at Disney World 3 years ago for $10 - that's what I wear

08:14 * ChristmasCoder holds it up in front of the monitor

08:14 <ChristmasCoder> see?

08:14 *** kathryn_ has joined #boinc

08:15 <ChristmasCoder> it's "ok" this time of year, but is a bit embarassing in July

08:18 <PovAdct_w> I dropped it yesterday

08:18 <PovAdct_w> now the minutes part is only capable of showing '40' or '41'

08:18 <PovAdct_w> both when time passes normally, and when I go to 'set time' mode and change the minutes, it just flips between those two numbers

08:19 <PovAdct_w> since it never reaches 59, the hour, day, etc. doesn't move either

08:20 <PovAdct_w> heh, I'll have found the solution if I get it to show 42 :)

08:20 <ChristmasCoder> on mine, the part where the watch band attaches broke

08:20 <PovAdct_w> the backlight has been broken for a year or two (also since I once dropped it)

08:21 <ChristmasCoder> the metal that holds the watch band finally basically rotted away - I wore the same watch for about 30 years

08:21 <PovAdct_w> o_o

08:21 <ChristmasCoder> Casio digital watch

08:22 * PovAdct_w watches his watch go from 9:41:59 to 9:40:00 yet again

08:23 <hawmps> it's broke.

08:23 <PovAdct_w> ya think?

12:39 <DerMeister> Yes, thanks :)

12:39 <MTughan> dashs: Did you restart the client after modifying those files?

12:39 <dashs> eh, mebbe not

12:40 <MTughan> Because it only reads those files on startup, not every so often or when a computer tries to connect.

12:40 <dashs> Or any reasonable time

12:44 <dashs> That's about 180 out from intuitive, but given the app, it makes a little sense.

19:05 * Soul_keeper agrees

19:05 <PovAddict> $ growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=/home/nicolas/image.iso

19:05 <Soul_keeper> does that pipe it thru cdrecord ?

19:06 <PovAddict> no, it does its own burning

19:06 *** ELGono has quit IRC

19:08 <Soul_keeper> interesting, must be a recent development

19:08 <PovAddict> "growisofs was originally designed to facilitate appending of data to ISO9660 volumes on random-access media such as plain files. In the course of development general purpose DVD recording support was implemented, and as of now growisofs supports mastering of multisession DVD media such as DVD+R and DVD-R/-RW. In addition growisofs supports first-/single-session recording of arbitrary pre-mastered image to all supported DVD media types."

19:09 <Soul_keeper> yeah just checked the manpage myself

19:11 <Soul_keeper> probably shares source with cdrecord

19:11 <PovAddict> hmm you could quickly burn multiple discs :)

19:11 <Soul_keeper> the joys of gpl :)

19:12 <PovAddict> for i in 1 2 3 4; do eject -t && growisofs -Z /dev/cdrom=image$i.iso && eject && read; done

19:12 <PovAddict> will eject when it finishes burning first CD

19:12 <PovAddict> you swap discs, press Enter in console, and it will put tray back in and burn next

19:12 <Soul_keeper> nice

19:13 <PovAddict> I guess you could add some robotics to automate disc swapping

19:13 <PovAddict> :D

19:24 <PovAddict> that's on yet another DVD

19:24 <PovAddict> (I'm burning multiple copies)

19:25 <PovAddict> I once burned like 40 copies of CDs, using two burners

19:25 <PovAddict> one of them stopped working after a while

19:25 <PovAddict> but worked again a few hours later

19:25 <PovAddict> I think it was overheat self-protection

19:25 <Tidus> overheated the laser?

19:25 <PovAddict> I think it refused to work *before* overheating too much

19:26 <Tidus> cool

19:26 <Tidus> i've got two burners on this laptop

19:26 <Tidus> the 8x internal, and a 16x thru usb

19:26 <PovAddict> I know it didn't melt out because it was working fine a while later

19:26 <PovAddict> damn this disc got hot

19:26 <Tidus> wanna know how i keep them from melting down into a puddle of slag?

19:27 <Tidus> turn your burn speed down to roughly half

19:27 <PovAddict> I'm not even setting a burn speed

19:27 <Tidus> it defaults to max if you dont set one

19:28 <Tidus> are you using growisofs to burn?

19:28 <Tidus> or a gui program?

19:28 <PovAddict> growisofs

19:28 <PovAddict> &last --with weak

19:28 <Romulus> PovAddict: [19:05:04] <PovAddict> GUIs are for the weak

19:29 <Tidus> there should be an option that sets burn speed

19:29 <PovAddict> I didn't bother to look

19:29 <PovAddict> -burn

19:29 <PovAddict> er

19:29 <PovAddict> -speed

19:30 <Tidus> lol

19:30 <Tidus> i get those quite often

19:30 <PovAddict> -speed=N

19:30 <Tidus> set it to half the speed of your slowest burner

19:31 <PovAddict> I have only one burner on this computer

19:31 <Tidus> they'll still complete in reasonable time and wont heat up your discs to the point they're too hot to touch

19:31 <PovAddict> and burning DVDs

19:31 <Tidus> mine's an 8x burner internal to the laptop, so i set it at 4x

19:31 <Rookie_69> NN.

19:31 <Tidus> takes a little longer but the discs aren't too hot to touch and they're more reliable

20:52 <zombie67> were you able to solve it somehow?

20:52 <efc> nope, turned if off :p

20:53 <PovAddict> zombie67: I wonder if 6.5 has some last-week (not to say last-minute) fixes that were done in 6.4 branch...

20:53 <PovAddict> so I think 6.5 would be worse in that area

20:53 <PovAddict> if you want it to *work*, get a 6.2 and give up CUDA

20:54 <zombie67> I just upgraded to 6.5

20:54 <efc> i was running 5.10.45 n that machine

20:54 <zombie67> I will give it some time to think about getting work

20:54 <xcamel> the entire cuda thing should be optional, and not be bloating the code

20:55 <PovAddict> the entire cuda thing was done by hacking and patching existing code

20:55 <zombie67> anhone sucessfully downgraded from 6.4 or 6.5 to 6.2?

20:55 <zombie67> anyone successfully ..

20:55 <xcamel> seems not

21:12 <efc> Wouldn't be suprising for version 1.0

21:12 <PovAddict> it was as rushed as BOINC 6.4, so no surprises

21:25 <efc> wonder if they'd take this stupid $15 rebate postcard

21:26 <efc> its interesting if you give to the red cross

21:26 <efc> their form has various salutations.. Ambassador, President, Prime Ministor, Bishop, etc

21:34 *** desti_T2 has joined #boinc

21:36 <zombie67> crap, same problem on another machine.  But on that second machine, I cannot get 6.2.19 to install.

21:37 <PovAddict> sleep ->

21:38 <MTughan> Night Pov.

21:38 <zombie67> so now I can't run BOINC at all

21:43 <PovAddict> whine where the devs can hear you

21:45 <zombie67> I also can't get to the point where I can uninstall

Chance of light freezing drizzle and light sleet in the morning...then a chance of light freezing rain and light (2 more messages)

22:01 <FreeLarry58> humm wonder what the big deal is about CUDA - put 6.4 on this machine and it says no CUDA device but then this machine on agp card

22:03 <Tidus> yeah, have to have PCI-E to be able to use cuda

22:03 <Tidus> otherwise not enough bandwidth

22:05 <PovAddict> Im so outdated... till not long ago I thought AGP was still the fastest connection to that kind of card

22:05 <FreeLarry58> ah well only got one machine then that may work with it but its unstable

22:06 * PovAddict stays away from hardware stuff

22:06 <FreeLarry58> ohhh PovAddict its been close to 2 years or more since change over

22:06 * PovAddict notes he has never opened the case of his current computer

22:07 <FreeLarry58> lol not a problem

22:07 <FreeLarry58> if its not broke don't fix it

22:07 <PovAddict> I should, and give it a cleaning

22:07 * FreeLarry58 has had several die shortly after cleaning them

22:08 <PovAddict> :O

22:08 <FreeLarry58> run them till they die then replace

22:08 <Tidus> i clean mine often

22:08 <Tidus> playing games on a dust clogged laptop shuts it down

22:08 <FreeLarry58> i vacumm outside and occasionally blow them out

22:09 <FreeLarry58> only one lappy here most are mid towers

22:09 <Tidus> two machines here

22:09 <Tidus> my lappy and an open-to-the-world celeron built into my entertainment center

22:09 <FreeLarry58> 8 machines now in house 2 over at bil

22:55 <zombie67> is there a server status page for WCG?

22:59 <Soul_keeper> we are doomed !!!,6718.html   windows powers nuclear subs

22:59 <Romulus> <> (at

23:02 <zombie67> amazing.  ALL the projects I am currently running are down:  uFluids, RCN, WCG.

23:02 <Soul_keeper> it might be you ...

23:02 <zombie67> probably...

23:05 <MTughan> I'll be so glad to get rid of this laptop... With the CPU fan not running properly (only going up to half speed now), nothing's being cooled properly. 50C steady on everything, no CPU load.

23:06 <MTughan> Except on the battery and hard drive.

23:09 <Soul_keeper> microsoft windows on nuclear subs !?!?!   am i the only one frightened by this ?

23:09 <MTughan> It's XP and 2000, not Vista. And it's isolated.

23:10 <Soul_keeper> so was the skynet ...

23:10 <MTughan> The Skynet?

23:10 <Soul_keeper> skynet  from terminator

23:10 <MTughan> Terminator the movie?

23:10 <Soul_keeper> sure

23:10 <MTughan> Don't trust the movies for truth.

23:10 <Soul_keeper> the computer that took over the world and stuff

23:11 <Soul_keeper> althought i doubt MS could mastermind that ...  more likely to BSOD while aiming or something

23:11 <Soul_keeper> or NOT aiming

23:12 * Soul_keeper leaves

23:12 <Tidus> MTughan: what laptop are you looking to get rid of ?

23:13 <MTughan> MacBook. Apple's taking it back and shipping out a new one.

23:13 <MTughan> I've had almost nothing but trouble with it.

23:14 <Tidus> ah

23:18 <Soul_keeper>,6720.html  amd pushing 40nm GPUs now

23:23 *** Tidus has quit IRC

23:23 *** Tidus has joined #boinc

23:26 <Tidus> did i just disconnect?

23:26 <MTughan> Yep.

23:26 <MTughan> Only message you might've missed: <Soul_keeper>,6720.html  amd pushing 40nm GPUs now

23:26 <Romulus> <> (at

23:26 <Tidus> guess i did

23:27 <Soul_keeper> funny that card has the exact same mem bandwidth as the card i just ordered ...

23:27 <Soul_keeper> aimed in the same price range too

23:27 <MTughan> I think the only things different is the manufacturing process and GDDR5 mem.

23:28 <Soul_keeper> yeah it's a budget card,  latest technology tho

23:28 <MTughan> Just like they did with the 4870 and 4850.

23:28 <Soul_keeper> cheaper to make with 40nm and 128-bit data paths

23:28 <MTughan> Not budget cards as much, but much more affordable than Nvidia's offerings at the time for similar performance.

23:29 <Soul_keeper> yeah

23:29 <MTughan> What, the GTX 280 took a $200 price cut? From $650 to ~$450?

23:29 <Soul_keeper> seems amd/ati is nearly exactely 1yr ahead in process tech as it stands now

23:29 <Soul_keeper> nvidia is getting desperate

23:30 <MTughan> They're only starting to go to 55nm, let alone the 40nm AMD is pushing.

23:30 <Soul_keeper> rather see them stick it to intel than nvidia ....

23:30 <Soul_keeper> yeah amd/ati had 55nm in november 07'

23:30 <MTughan> The 9800GTX+ was the first card to go 55, the new GTX series are next up. The current GT 200 series are all 65nm.

23:32 <Soul_keeper> they are putting everything they have into the video cards it seems ...  aren't hearing about 40nm cpu's

23:32 <MTughan> Because the next move will be to 32nm in CPUs.

23:33 <Soul_keeper> yeah 40nm might be a half-node

23:33 <MTughan> And they just released the Shanghai server proc, Phenom II up next. Both bring better performance, and AMD's move to 45nm.

23:33 <Soul_keeper> just as 55 was

23:33 <Soul_keeper> still ahead in the vid cards

23:34 <Soul_keeper> focus is there, profit it there i suppose

23:34 <Soul_keeper> is*

23:34 <Tidus> MTughan: the phenom II also brings amd's move to ddr3

23:34 <Tidus> with the am3 platform

23:34 <MTughan> Because they were lagging in video cards. Apparently, AMD's stock has dropped every quarter since their acquisition of ATI.

23:34 <MTughan> Tidus: Phenom II and AM3 can support DDR3, but also DDR2.

23:35 <MTughan> It's like the X48 chipset.

23:35 <Soul_keeper> Ati is paying for itself atleast :)

23:35 <MTughan> It is now.

23:36 <Tidus> MTughan: the phenom IIs released for christmas will be ddr2 only

23:36 <Tidus> the ones next year will be 2 and 3

23:36 <MTughan> Because they're AM2+ procs.

23:36 <MTughan> AM2+ only supports DDR2.

23:36 <MTughan> And they're being released January 9th, not in time for Christmas.

23:36 <Soul_keeper> ati has been paying for itself since the beginning

23:36 <Soul_keeper> .

23:36 * Soul_keeper leaves

23:37 <MTughan> Well, Letterman's making fun of the cold weather...

23:39 <Tidus> isn't he always?

23:39 <Tidus> he's like a gajillion years old

23:40 <zombie67> years ago, he stopped being funny, and turned into a bitter old man

23:53 <Soul_keeper> MTughan ?

23:53 <Romulus> MTughan is getting GCC errors, so that is an indication that it uses GCC. Just have to tweak stuff now, Soul_keeper

23:53 *** freakazoid0223 has joined #boinc

23:53 <Soul_keeper> forget MTughan

23:53 <Romulus> Okay.

23:53 <Soul_keeper> MTughan is in need of a pony for xmas
