01:01 <efc> My monitor still hasn't shipped..

01:04 <ChristmasCoder> soory about the monitor - I'll see what I can do about that

01:05 <ChristmasCoder> after going back to bed

01:05 <ChristmasCoder> re-gn

01:05 <Tidus> gn coder

01:06 <ChristmasCoder> gn Tidus

01:23 <efc> S@h not really raking in the dough so far

01:58 <Soul_keeper> i've lost my mind !!!

01:58 <Tidus> so have i

02:00 <efc> Where did you see it last?

02:00 <Soul_keeper> i think i was born with brain damage

02:01 <Soul_keeper> nothing works right

02:19 <efc> Those dip-dos are still processing my order. Sendit!

02:41 <Soul_keeper> my 3-day ups will take 8 days

02:42 <efc> I was hoping they'd at least get it off the dock before Christmas

02:43 <Soul_keeper> with me they usually ship it right away, fly it over to the local ups location  then let it sit for several days

02:44 <Soul_keeper> basically i could drive up and get it probably right now

02:44 <Soul_keeper> 1hr drive away, but won't see it till monday

02:46 <Soul_keeper> i spent like 2 days building up completed WU's for a 1 day race :)

02:46 <Soul_keeper> i might win

02:59 <efc> the CUDA thing is kind of discouraging me from springing for a big i7

03:06 <Soul_keeper> i'm not excited about i7

03:06 <Soul_keeper> it's just hyperthreading and longer piplines,  reincarnated P4

03:06 <Soul_keeper> nothing wrong with waiting a few weeks for amd's answer

03:07 <efc> one thing that would be cool, is I read somewhere they could easily put two sockets on a board

03:07 <Soul_keeper> yeah

03:07 <efc> platform is still immature and pricey for now

03:08 <Soul_keeper> yup

03:08 <Soul_keeper> i noticed odd things with hyperthreading, didn't like it much

03:08 <Soul_keeper> the P4's would grind to a hault when all threads were fully loaded

03:09 <Soul_keeper> never see that with true multicore

03:09 <efc> yeah sometimes the balancing leaves something to be desired

03:09 <efc> playing a video game, it can't get more than 50% of CPU cuz BOINC is going on the other

03:10 <efc> usually doesn't matter

03:14 <Soul_keeper> yeah not for the average desktop user

03:14 <Soul_keeper> i'd just rather see 2 simpler smaller cores than than 2 "logical" cores

03:19 <Soul_keeper> imagine if they put 16 or 32 cores that were the same power as a 1GHz athlon on a single die

03:19 <Soul_keeper> could probably due some incredibe things

03:20 <Soul_keeper> throw in a massive L3 and all the latest instruction sets, etc.

03:20 <efc> Intel did that 80 core thing as a project once

03:20 <Soul_keeper> yeah that was interesting

03:21 <Soul_keeper> i think they are afraid that with so many single threaded apps, they can't lower the strength of any single core below what is offered by 3GHz+ cpu's currently

03:22 <Soul_keeper> will always be that user who would see it as a downgrade and cause a rucus

03:33 <Soul_keeper> cool, the "show graphics" button works for all the WCG projects it seems :)

03:34 <Soul_keeper> anyways i need to attempt sleep

03:34 *** sigmund_ is now known as sigmund

03:35 <DerMeister> It didn't work for me on linux. I think it needs some library I didn't have or it was too old on my system

03:53 *** efc has quit IRC

04:54 <FreeLarry58> which projects uses CUDA device? only have one machine it seems

04:57 <DerMeister> As far as I know seti and gpugrid.

04:57 <FreeLarry58> humm so will let that machine go and just update seti - haven't attached any to gpugrid project before

04:58 <FreeLarry58> wouldn't you know it the only machine to detect cuda was my game machine with an underpowered cpu

04:59 <DerMeister> Hehe. I don't have any machine that could run cuda applications. In fact, even my most recent machine is more than five years old...

05:00 <Tidus> i don't either.

05:00 <Tidus> the 7xxx geforce chips didn't have cuda

05:00 <FreeLarry58> took a reset of project to get new software

05:01 <FreeLarry58> i think that machine has an 8400 in it but other machines that have newer cards didn't detect

05:01 <Tidus> have to have the 17x drivers

05:02 <FreeLarry58> that may explain it - had trouble getting some games to run so installed the newest drivers which wer 2 series higher on that machine

05:03 <FreeLarry58> of course micro$ wants to update to older drivers all the time

05:03 <Tidus> 17x or higher

05:03 <Tidus> look on nvidia's site

05:03 <FreeLarry58> k

05:04 <FreeLarry58> will see how seti does first

05:05 <FreeLarry58> seti site very slow on the download speed currently

05:06 <FreeLarry58> combined <.5KBps

05:06 <Tidus> ack

05:06 <FreeLarry58> almost looks like the put thier uploads on a dialup modem

05:07 <Tidus> either that or nearly everybody is hammering it

05:07 <FreeLarry58> lol that has always been thier problem it seemed

05:13 <ChristmasCoder> rained all night

05:13 <FreeLarry58> wet snow here from looking out window

05:14 <ChristmasCoder> I'm going into w@#% this morning for a meeting featuring a free breakfast

05:16 <FreeLarry58> hey free dont knock it too badly

05:16 <ChristmasCoder> the alarm is a mean device when you're on vacation

05:16 <FreeLarry58> hmm see seti is cuda but astropulse is not

05:16 <FreeLarry58> vacation is when most w/*- is done

05:17 <ChristmasCoder> I see the need for something to drink - brb

05:17 <FreeLarry58> i'll take a double tall quad shot

05:17 <FreeLarry58> coffee fortified egg nog that is

05:24 <ChristmasCoder> b

05:25 <FreeLarry58> k

05:26 <FreeLarry58> guess seti got no work except for cudas

05:26 <ChristmasCoder> lookiing

05:26 <FreeLarry58> did reset and getting message project has no jobs available

05:27 <ChristmasCoder> I have tons of SETI WUs waiting locally

05:28 <ChristmasCoder> servers look like they were down about 1.5 hours ago

05:28 <FreeLarry58> lol just got one just now

05:28 <ChristmasCoder> whatuthinking?

05:28 <FreeLarry58> reset one machine to activate cuda for it seti units galore and one ap

05:29 <FreeLarry58> think they hammered with fortified eggnot

05:29 <ChristmasCoder> eggnot, or not

05:30 <FreeLarry58> wife all upset - she tried to get off the base and couldn't get up hill so still stuck on ship

05:30 <FreeLarry58> and now freezing drizzle coming down ontop of the snow

05:30 <ChristmasCoder> misery on top of mayhem

05:30 <FreeLarry58> i think she will miss xmas at home and only 18 miles away

05:31 <ChristmasCoder> you could go rescue her

05:31 <FreeLarry58> if i remember the base roads right i couldn't get back up the hill either even with chains

05:32 <FreeLarry58> plus no longer have the security clearance to get to where she's at

05:32 <FreeLarry58> at least active clearance

05:34 <FreeLarry58> she's not alone at least on ship and its stocked for 3 months supply of food

05:35 <FreeLarry58> 4 others stranded there also

05:38 *** [RKN]frost has joined #boinc

05:41 <ChristmasCoder> yeah but

05:41 <FreeLarry58> still disappointment evident in voice - may drive to base tomorrow to have talk with OOD and find out if anything being done

05:42 <FreeLarry58> so far 4 extra days stranded on ship after thier work supposedly done for year

05:44 <FreeLarry58> even if base doesn't have plows i know for fact they have heavy earth movers that could be pressed into service

05:46 <ChristmasCoder> I was thinking they might have a way

05:46 <ChristmasCoder> time to get ready to go out - bbiab

05:46 <FreeLarry58> they do but it takes someone with pull to get them to do anything anymore

05:46 <FreeLarry58> i may still know a couple of people up there

05:47 <FreeLarry58> been 16 years since stationed there

05:47 * FreeLarry58 doesn't seem like its been that long

05:47 <FreeLarry58> tc don

05:48 <FreeLarry58> time to go to bed here

05:48 <FreeLarry58> &nn all

09:28 * PovAdct_w curses GC programs

09:28 <PovAdct_w> moving the mouse around in Eclipse causes it to increase memory usage

09:29 <PovAdct_w> then after a while free a big chunk (full GC just happened there)

09:29 <ChristmasCoder> W@#% Is Rarely Convenient PovAdct_w

09:29 <PovAdct_w> probably "mouse-has-moved event" is an new'd object

09:29 <ChristmasCoder> massive UnDo on mouse movement?

09:29 <PovAdct_w> and they accumulate until GC thinks it's a convenient time to clean them up

09:30 <DerMeister> Wellcome to Java...

09:31 * PovAdct_w plans to rewrite his forum sig code some day, from PHP to C++

09:32 <PovAdct_w> there are a few things that make C++ a *more* appropriate language for web apps :P

09:32 <PovAdct_w> ChristmasCoder: the current w#$% hell is having to learn ClearQuest

09:32 <ChristmasCoder> QueerWhat?

09:33 <PovAdct_w> defect tracking system

09:33 <PovAdct_w> from IBM Rational

09:33 <ChristmasCoder> I know =)

09:33 <PovAdct_w> suxsuxsuxsuxsux

09:33 <ChristmasCoder> Why not Bugzilla?

09:33 <PovAdct_w> (especially since I have a pre-IBM version!)

09:34 <ChristmasCoder> need to tie it back into the (c)ode?

09:34 <PovAdct_w> ChristmasCoder: because selling Rational stuff is one of the main activities here

09:34 <ChristmasCoder> eating your own dogfood?

09:35 <PovAdct_w> well, some day I may have to support a client's CQ installation, so I better know what that dogfood tastes like

09:36 <ChristmasCoder> I can think of better self-inflicted injuries

09:36 <PovAdct_w> self-inflicted?

09:37 <Romulus> ChristmasCoder: No definition for "selfinflicted" could be found.

09:37 <ChristmasCoder> I guess it means nothing

09:38 <PovAdct_w> my boss is bald, dilbert's boss is pointy-haired... trying to think of another difference...

10:06 <ChristmasCoder> is that a feature?

10:06 <PovAdct_w> nope

10:06 <PovAdct_w> and I noticed they were thread handles actually

10:06 <PovAdct_w> this client started 48 hours ago

10:06 <PovAdct_w> and has 260 invalid thread handles open

10:07 <PovAdct_w> with very short WUs, lots of CPU cores, and running for a long time, it could accumulate enough open handles to actually cause problems

13:47 <wdsmia_w> what sdo you know Rookie_69 is right for a change :P

13:47 <PovAddict> Soul_keeper: then what's promising about it?

13:48 <PovAddict> wouldn't a dozen CPUs give about the same performance, and the same insane power usage?

13:49 <PovAddict> I don't get what's all the hype

13:49 <PovAddict> yeah GPUs are *fast*! oh but you need this beast of a PSU and get ready for your electricity bill

13:49 <Soul_keeper> i was talking about promising from a code support standpoint

13:49 <Soul_keeper> was just reading some forums and stuff

13:51 <PovAddict> "GPUs are 10 times more power efficient than CPU for the same flops"

13:51 <PovAddict> hmm I don't *quite* buy that

13:52 <Rookie_69> 1.0 times then?

13:52 <PovAddict> with the crazy heat I thought they were *less* efficient

13:52 <PovAddict> either way I personally think they're not worth the trouble

13:53 * PovAddict has a 8600GT, not quite enough to crunch, but definitely not planning to buy a better one

13:53 <Rookie_69> Just open up the box and pour in some liquid nitrogen every once in a while.

13:54 <PovAddict> Rookie_69: I'm thinking of the electricity bill

13:54 <Rookie_69> I just turn down the electric heat.

13:55 <PovAddict> I'm in summer, and don't have electric heat anyway

13:55 <Rookie_69> It's not a cure-all... I have to turn off most boxes when summer rolls around.

13:56 <Rookie_69> Run an extension cord over to the neighbour's house?

13:56 * PovAddict is not planning to buy any more hardware

13:57 * Rookie_69 cannot afford to buy any new hardware. :-(

13:58 * PovAddict might be able to afford but can't really choose to buy it as long as he lives with his parents

14:11 <Rookie_69> It was either that or thaw something.

14:16 <Soul_keeper> over the last 15yrs the average women's breast size has apparently grown from B cup to C cup,  it's attributed to all the hormones in the food

14:18 *** yoyo[RKN] has joined #boinc

14:18 <Rookie_69> Compare grade eight students now to when you went to school...

14:19 <PovAddict> tell me about it

14:20 <Rookie_69> Ok... Their breasts are noticeably larger these days.

14:21 <Rookie_69> Lol.

14:21 <PovAddict> ahaa you've been paying attention

14:21 <Rookie_69> ... but then so are a lot of their stomachs.

14:21 <PovAddict> "I love Thanksgiving turkey; it's the only time in Los Angeles that you see natural breasts."

14:22 <Rookie_69> You think there's no hormones in the turkeys???

14:22 <PovAddict> lol

14:23 <PovAddict> well one thing is hormones and another is silicone

14:23 <Rookie_69> I had a bit of free range turkey a bunch of years ago... It brought back mammaries... I mean memories.

14:24 <Rookie_69> The skin was thin and crunchy, not all fat.

14:24 <Rookie_69> Yum.

14:25 <yoyo[RKN]> re

14:26 <Rookie_69> Step two... Staple feet to cage.

14:26 <Rookie_69> Step three... Feed.

14:26 <Rookie_69> Step four... Slaughter.

14:27 <Rookie_69> I think step three is where the hormones are involved.

14:44 <Rookie_69> Close enough.

14:50 <Rookie_69> Umm... PovAddict said the W word...

14:50 <Rookie_69> Lol.

14:52 <Rookie_69> Mmm... smells from (awfully) slow cooker are making me drool...

15:05 <FreeLarry58> humm PovAddict got cuda to run on an 8400 card so 8600 should work

15:06 <FreeLarry58> well maybe they all ran 7 to 8 secs the comp errored

15:06 <PovAddict> FreeLarry58: as long as BOINC with CUDA support sucks so much, I'm not even *trying*

15:07 <FreeLarry58> Cuda error 'cudaMallocArray( &dev_gauss_dof_lcgf_cache' in file 'c:/sw/gpgpu/seti/seti_boinc/client/cuda/' in line 417 : feature is not yet implemented.

15:07 <FreeLarry58> </stderr_txt>

15:08 <FreeLarry58> cudaAcc_initializeDevice: Found 1 CUDA device(s):

15:08 <FreeLarry58>    Device 1 : GeForce 8400 GS

15:08 <FreeLarry58> looks like more coding work required for it from seti ;)

15:09 <PovAddict> SETI science app was as rushed as BOINC 6.4

15:09 <FreeLarry58> only machine that detected a cuda device altho others do have them - i haven't installed new enough drivers for them

15:09 <FreeLarry58> yup

15:10 <FreeLarry58> and even tho you go to 6.4.x you need to reset your seti to get the cuda exe file

15:11 <FreeLarry58> else you stay with old seti exe

15:34 * Rookie_69 away
