00:01 <Soul_keeper> they are removing the soul plane videos from youtube ...

00:01 <Soul_keeper> 5 and 6  of 10 have been removed

00:02 <PovAddict> heh, wonder what xcamel would think of this...

00:02 <PovAddict> "I have started to have the feeling that one of the best things for BOINC in the long run would be for all funding to dry up for the project. Then it would truly become open source and the community would have a real chance to begin to make it work ..." - Paul Buck

00:12 <Soul_keeper> then we'll all just hafta do it :)

04:46 <Soul_keeper> "gdGiantFont, gdLargeFont, gdMediumBoldFont, gdSmallFont and gdTinyFont. Currently there is no way of dynamically creating your own fonts."

05:49 <desti> ugh

05:52 <Soul_keeper> well i learned enough doing that to where i can write a cgi script that'll take any number of boincstats user id's and generate a 1 month points chart comparing them ....

05:55 <Soul_keeper> or do a 1 month race, starting now and update daily

05:55 <Soul_keeper> which is my intent

06:09 *** PriitM has quit IRC

06:18 * Soul_keeper wonders how many people are envious of his supreme powers

06:21 <FreeLarry58> humm i see even tho gpugrid uses vid card it still needs half of the cpu processing power to keep track

06:21 <FreeLarry58> so rest of boinc projects get slowed down also

06:22 <Soul_keeper> not much

06:22 <Soul_keeper> it uses a % of a single core per GPU

06:23 <Soul_keeper> still some things they can't do on the gpu

06:23 <FreeLarry58> well don't know same cpu time but longer clock time for each unit

06:23 <Soul_keeper> you end up generating more credit :)

06:23 <FreeLarry58> yup running on a amd 3500

06:24 <Soul_keeper> are you running it ?

06:24 <FreeLarry58> lol only machine that seems to say its got a cuda on it even tho other machines with same card don't - must be because i updated the vid drivers to play those japanese games

06:24 <Soul_keeper> haha

06:25 <FreeLarry58> only machine that windows media player working on for a lot of offball (to me) vid files too

15:52 <Tank_Master-> yeah

15:52 <Tank_Master-> or freezing rain

15:52 <old511> LOL

15:53 <Tank_Master-> we get that here every year

16:40 <MTughan> Quad's at 3.28GHz now, after a brief crunching period at 3.2GHz.

16:40 <MTughan> Doing stress testing.

16:40 <Tank_Master-> nice!

16:40 <Tank_Master-> I have my quad at 3.48

16:40 <MTughan> Q6600?

16:40 <Romulus> It has been said that Q6600 are cheap, MTughan

16:43 <MTughan> I'm hoping to get quite high. I should also mention that this is 3.28GHz, at standard voltages. All I've been touching are the RAM voltages (they're rated for higher than normal), the FSB, and RAM ratios.

16:47 <jasong_> Since I forgot to comment on it, apparently my chat client is only willing to display people's names when they join the channel, not when they're already here

16:50 <Tank_Master-> lol

16:50 <Tank_Master-> its a qx6700

16:50 *** wdsmia_ is now known as wdsmia

16:50 <Tank_Master-> on a 975 chipset

16:52 <jasong_> Change of subject:  Am I the only one that thinks AMD chips are cheaper than an octogenarian hooker?  If they use less power, they seem to be the best bet for any cruncher that isn't looking for prime numbers

16:52 <jasong_> Do they use less power?

16:55 <MTughan> Tank_Master-: Sounds good. Q6600 on a P45 here.

16:57 <jasong_> lol, ok, no change of subject

16:57 <Tank_Master-> no

16:57 <Tank_Master-> they do not

16:58 <Tank_Master-> the i7s use less

16:58 <jasong_> ahh, interesting

16:59 <MTughan> You mean in TDP?

16:59 <jasong_> Well, I mean overall, since different RAM setups use different amounts of power

16:59 <Tank_Master-> no, the TDP is higher, actually

16:59 <jasong_> ahh

16:59 <Tank_Master-> but the TDP just indicates the max power it can handle

16:59 <MTughan> Yeah, i7's use DDR3, which is lower power.

17:00 <Tank_Master-> not how much it uses

17:00 <jasong_> I seem to remember a situation where one of the companies had low power chips, but the RAM tipped the power usage the other way

17:00 <Tank_Master-> that was FBBDDR? RAM

17:00 <Tank_Master-> FBDDR*

17:01 <Tank_Master-> Fully buffered DDR

17:01 <Tank_Master-> whatever it is that the Zeons use

17:01 <MTughan> FB-DDR makes it easier to tell.

17:01 <Tank_Master-> Xeons*

17:01 <MTughan> And it's the Xeon procs.
