IRC logs of #boinc for Thursday, 2008-12-25

00:03 <efc> night FL

00:27 <ChristmasCoder> Merry Plink

00:44 *** freakazoid0223 has quit IRC

00:46 <efc> My monitor shipped. Good job CFL/CC.

00:46 <ChristmasCoder> hey, twas e-z

00:47 <efc> I will check the status

00:49 <efc> All this CUDA mess gave me an idea

00:49 <efc> maybe it would be easier to implement a FPGA CUDA processor

00:50 <efc> than fancy pants s@h

00:54 <efc> if its a very simple model of computation..

00:55 <ChristmasCoder> plink

00:55 <ChristmasCoder> web site hacker - looking for phpMyAdmin

00:56 <efc> Maybe he wants to fix your lousy web site

00:56 <ChristmasCoder> hmm?

00:57 <ChristmasCoder> "lousy web site"?

00:58 <efc> Yep, you ingrate

00:58 <ChristmasCoder> I de-louse it regularly

00:58 <efc> Obviously not, the open source movement is trying to assist you via the internet

00:59 <efc> Maybe I should send Wikip some money. Seems like I gave away to evrybody else this year..

00:59 <Soul_keeper> Coprocessors[CUDA|GeForce 9800 GT|1|511MB]

00:59 <ChristmasCoder> I thought the Japanese were allies

00:59 <Soul_keeper> now just to wait for them to have work for it i guess

01:00 <efc> sweet soul_keeper

01:01 <ChristmasCoder> ack another one

01:01 <ChristmasCoder> plink

01:02 <ChristmasCoder> going after "mail", "webmail", "rc" and "roundcube"

01:02 <ChristmasCoder> this one is in Bulgaria

01:02 <ChristmasCoder> Sofia

01:02 *** freakazoid0223 has joined #boinc

01:03 <efc> What are they doing? Trying ports?

01:05 <Soul_keeper> hmmm i dunno if this GPU computing works or not

01:05 <Soul_keeper> either niether gpugrid or seti beta have work right now, or it's broken

01:08 *** mchelen has joined #boinc

01:12 <ChristmasCoder> they are fetching URLs - getting 404s

01:12 <ChristmasCoder> trying to see if the web server has various things installed

01:13 <ChristmasCoder> I guess theyhave a bunch of exploits up their sleeves to try if they know what's installed

01:13 <efc> They'll probably offer to install software for you absolutely free of charge.

01:13 <ChristmasCoder> I hear rootkit is a popular one

01:17 <ChristmasCoder> well, time to try the bed again

01:18 <efc> night CC

01:18 <Soul_keeper> ChristmasCoder, get an nvidia card

01:18 <ChristmasCoder> the hackers will have to try to manage without me

01:18 <Soul_keeper> i don't wanna be the only one trying boinc on the gpu round here ...

01:19 <ChristmasCoder> sorry Soul_keeper - no mun, no phun

01:19 <ChristmasCoder> I'm off to try to have some dreams of sugar plums dance in my head

01:19 <efc> I'll try it when they have the Geforce4 version :P

01:19 <Soul_keeper> lol k

01:20 <ChristmasCoder> gn and mc efc Soul_keeper

01:20 <Soul_keeper> late

01:20 <Soul_keeper> well with just over 100 bucks i got a decent card that supports things

01:20 <Soul_keeper> the anticipation of something actually running on it is killing me tho

01:22 <efc> How many could you load up in one machine?

01:23 <MTughan> Wow... I was away from my computer for about 30 hours there.

01:25 <Soul_keeper> efc, the two machines i have only have 1x pcie slot a peice

01:25 <Soul_keeper> but you can put 4 in some motherboards ...

01:25 <Soul_keeper> well 8 i suppose.  4x dual GPU cards

01:26 <MTughan> The Fastra.

01:27 <efc> if the model of computation isn't too complex maybe I could build some

01:27 <MTughan> Uses 4 GeForce 9800GX2s, along with a 1500W PSU.

01:29 <Soul_keeper> nice

01:29 <Soul_keeper> i got a single 9800GT

01:30 <MTughan> They use it for medical imaging. :P

01:30 <efc> People die every day. Commence the BOINCing.

01:31 <Soul_keeper> well i got a few seti beta WUs now, but they appear to just be running on the cpu

01:45 <MTughan> All right, testing Aqua's OS X app now...

01:46 <MTughan> He had problems creating a Tiger compatible version... You have to really look that up to figure it out.

01:48 <Soul_keeper> hmmm i think i figured out what's going on

01:49 <Soul_keeper> they tie the gpu to the cpu cores

01:49 <Soul_keeper> so you can apparently only run as many tasks as cpu cores you have or something silly

01:49 <MTughan> I believe that's the case on Windows ATM.

01:50 <Soul_keeper> that's from a Jul post on GPUgrid tho ...

01:51 <Soul_keeper> anyone here run seti beta ?

01:51 <MTughan> Nope.

01:51 <MTughan> And with it being almost 2AM, I should be off... Seeya tomorrow.

01:51 <Soul_keeper> i need to compare WU times to someone with a c2d

01:51 <MTughan> And have a Merry Christmas all!

01:51 <MTughan> &nn

02:34 <yoyo[RKN]> brrrr

02:35 <efc> not projects.. CUDA processor was the idea, looking at it now

02:35 <Soul_keeper> lol midnight mass with the pope ?

02:36 <Soul_keeper> cuda just lets you use the GPU's  collection of libraries/tools (runtime environment and compiler etc.)

02:36 <Soul_keeper> it would take me some serious time to wrap my head around coding with it

02:37 <Soul_keeper> doubt i could do it without the rest of my life falling off a cliff (more than it already has)

02:37 <efc> i was looking at implementing a processor that could run the stuff it compiles

02:37 <efc> or at least, what it would take

02:38 <efc> doesn't look like a terribly complicated model of computation

02:38 <efc> the driver probably does a lot to get it running optimally

02:38 <Soul_keeper> likely

14:22 <ChristmasCoder> plink - many ftp hack attempts on user ID "Administrator"

14:22 <ChristmasCoder> dis ain't no doze box

14:23 <ChristmasCoder> I wish I could resolve that name in DNS

14:23 <Tidus> lol...

14:23 <Tidus> spoofed dns

14:23 <ChristmasCoder> uh-huh

14:23 <Tidus> ping comes up empty for me

14:24 <ChristmasCoder> uh-huh

14:24 <ChristmasCoder> nslookup says "what?!?"

14:24 <xcamel> no dig or jwhois either

14:24 <ChristmasCoder> must be those pesky Chinese intelligence

14:24 <ChristmasCoder> or lack thereof

14:25 <ChristmasCoder> Mom and Dad are on their way - Christmas Day dinner is the next event on today's agena

14:25 <PovAddict> you need the real IP from before your ftp log or whatever converted it to a hostname...

14:25 <xcamel> cloaked dns

14:26 <ChristmasCoder> I looked at tcpdump -vv | grep ftp and that's what it says too

14:26 <Tidus> and the raw logs aren't giving you an ip?

14:26 <ChristmasCoder> I dropped the ftp service to stop it

14:26 <xcamel> nothing resolves on that

14:27 <PovAddict> ChristmasCoder: use -n on tcpdump

14:27 <ChristmasCoder> tcpdump -n

14:27 <ChristmasCoder> what's that do?

14:27 <ChristmasCoder> nslookup?

14:28 <PovAddict> it *stops* tcpdump from looking up the names

14:28 <PovAddict> so it will give you the real IP

14:28 <ChristmasCoder> ah

14:28 <ChristmasCoder> well - he's gone now

14:28 <Tidus> if they spoofed dns, probably spoofed ip as well

14:28 <ChristmasCoder> dropping the ftp service usually makes them go away mad

14:29 <PovAddict> Tidus: that's not possible, unless the attacker is only interested in DoSing you

14:29 <ChristmasCoder> ossec isn't able to help either

14:29 <ChristmasCoder> anyways - about time for parents to get here, and you know how parents are...

14:29 <ChristmasCoder> laterz all

14:30 <Tidus> seeya

14:30 <xcamel> have fun

17:20 <efc> Goo Quail

17:20 <efc> (d)

17:25 <efc> I read a bit about the assembly format that the CUDA stuff produces. Seems relatively straightforward.

17:26 <Soul_keeper> :)

17:27 <efc> I'm still not quite clear on how the whole thing is set up.

17:27 <efc> Is there a special file with the s@h client thats just the CUDA stuff?

17:27 <PovAddict> yes

17:27 <PovAddict> it's a .exe

17:27 <PovAddict> ;)

17:28 <efc> I was wondering how they handle the handoffs from CPU<->GPU

17:28 <PovAddict> get the code then... it's all GPL

17:29 <efc> I'm at it

17:30 <Soul_keeper> seti beta doesn't have enough work to keep my computer busy

17:30 <Soul_keeper> and appears to NOT be using the GPU at all

17:30 <Soul_keeper> gotta wait till next year i guess

17:31 <efc> Pov, what I was looking at is seeing other ways of running the cuda version, like different hardware or whatever

17:32 <PovAddict> efc: you'd need a different program for sure

17:32 <PovAddict> I really doubt you can make the cuda version run on your hardware unmodified

17:32 <PovAddict> at the very least you'd have to modify some initialization code to talk to your hardware instead of a graphics card

17:33 <efc> The cuda compiles into some semi abstract assembly thing called PTX

17:33 <efc> But I don't know how you'd go about intercepting that

17:33 <efc> Yeah I'm sure some mods would be required

17:33 <PovAddict> modifying the app to talk to your hardware and send it the same code that the GPU gets would be possible maybe

17:40 <efc> An interesting concept would be to translate the PTX assembly to VHDL, however I believe this would be Hard.

17:43 <efc> I looked but didn't find the PTX assembly dump of the s@h client.

17:48 <PovAddict> no such thing probably

17:48 <PovAddict> there's only .cu files that get compiled

17:49 *** IZ3NXL has joined #boinc

17:50 <efc> You can generate the ptx but generally there's not much reason to.

17:51 <PovAddict> well it's probably generated and sent to the GPU when it runs

17:51 <efc> I think the .cu goes to ptx sort of like java compiles to some java assembly thingy

17:51 <PovAddict> yeah

19:55 <MTughan> Holy crap... I got another Christmas present: my best day on BOINCStats on record, second only to a brief stint at the former Ramsey.

19:56 <MTughan> 6500 credits in one day. Take that PovAddict! :)

19:58 <MTughan> And in other Christmas news on my end... I got my quad-core (almost)!

19:58 <MTughan> Just need a video card, which I can get tomorrow.

20:00 <PovAddict> augh

20:00 <PovAddict> GPU... now *that* will be unfair for me :((

20:05 <MTughan> Oh... Yeah, could've easily been that too. :P

20:09 <MTughan> PovAddict: I was going to overtake you around 590K before. It's up to 600K, about 5 days.

20:10 <PovAddict> those stats can't be right due to your unusually high credits yesterday

20:10 <MTughan> I should have the quad-core built tomorrow, but it might not be up for a couple days after.

20:10 <MTughan> No, I've been about two days behind you for 590K for a while now.

20:10 <PovAddict> quad?

20:10 <PovAddict> ok in that case those stats are *under*-estimating

20:10 <PovAddict> ._.

20:11 <MTughan> I have the quad proc, the MB, and the RAM, but no GPU yet. Also thinking about upgrading my PSU.

20:11 <MTughan> Computer store opens at 9AM tomorrow, I'll probably hit it around 9:30AM.

20:11 <MTughan> (Add 3 hours for your time)

20:11 <PovAddict> lol

20:12 <PovAddict> you want me to run and try to get hardware before you do? :D

20:12 <MTughan> No, you can count down your hours above me. :D

22:14 <sethy> :D

22:14 <sethy> dont i like, have a link on my server homepage?

22:15 <sethy> along with comparison of you, mike and me

22:16 <PovAddict> I imported Einstein user list into a MySQL table

22:17 <PovAddict> was trying to calculate your rank

22:17 <PovAddict> I searched name="seth" and found 43 users :P

22:17 <sethy> XD

22:17 <sethy> sethiroth66?

22:17 <PovAddict> sethiroth66 found none

22:17 <PovAddict> that's when I asked here :P

22:17 <PovAddict> then I found which of the "seth"s was you, compared to boincstats, and rank didn't match

22:17 <PovAddict> I thought I had done something wrong

22:18 <sethy> seth

22:18 <PovAddict> and then I noticed I was comparing your Einstein rank as calculated on my DB, with your *global BOINC rank* as calculated by BOINCStats :P

22:18 <sethy> all lowercase

22:18 <sethy> xD

22:18 <PovAddict> when I actually went to the Einstein-only page on boincstats it did match

22:58 <PovAddict> and CPIDs in binary instead of hex

22:59 <sethy> i think you'd waste space if CPID's were in binary instead of hex

22:59 <PovAddict> for sure just putting them into a DB would use less space than the XMLs...

22:59 <PovAddict> sethy: no, I'd take half the space

22:59 <sethy> hmm

23:00 <PovAddict> "6e" = 2 bytes

23:00 <sethy> its 4 AM... i've been drinking... I'M NOT TIRED!?

23:01 <sethy> oic?

23:47 <sethy> its by freecom

23:47 <sethy> i have one thats 160GB

23:47 <sethy> cost me 60GBP from instore

23:47 <infinisoft> I was looking at those and also a SSD but it would've been a PITA to have to shift my files around and put the OS on there

23:48 <sethy> not to mention, it costs forever amounts of money for like 64GB or something

23:49 <infinisoft> Yeah, I like this one needed the capacity plus its got good performance and doesn't draw much more power than 5400 rpms
