01:02 <MTughan> I can't seem to make my processor stable at 3.35GHz, although I haven't really tried yet.
01:03 <MTughan> 3.27 is stable, I'm testing a much higher FSB with a slightly lower multipler, 3.05GHz.
01:03 <Soul_keeper> which CPU ?
01:04 <MTughan> C2Q Q6600.
01:04 <MTughan> BSOD's on me.
01:04 <Soul_keeper> that's 65nm right ?
01:04 <MTughan> Yes.
01:05 <MTughan> I haven't played with the voltages yet, so that'll be my next step.
01:05 <Soul_keeper> my dual core allendales both maxed out at 3GHz even
01:05 <Soul_keeper> my 45nm q9450 maxes out at 3.3GHz
01:05 <MTughan> I'd liken this processor to a Conroe rather than an Allendale.
01:05 <Soul_keeper> it's likely a heat issue, raising the voltage can hinder the oc
01:06 <MTughan> I know.
01:06 <Soul_keeper> liken it to whatever you want
01:07 <Soul_keeper> 3.2GHz was my max during the summer, 3.3 during the winter :)
01:08 <MTughan> It's a little chiller in here right now, hottest core is at 66C under Prime95.
01:10 <Soul_keeper> i'm at 57C on my q9450 right now, full load under boinc
01:10 <Soul_keeper> 63C on my allendale
01:10 <MTughan> I find BOINC runs 10C cooler than Prime95, at least with ABC.
01:11 <MTughan> So I'm figuring my max temp is somewhere around 75C.
01:11 <Soul_keeper> in my experience they get unstable in the mid 60's
01:11 <MTughan> 3.27 was running at 70-71C.
01:11 <Soul_keeper> that's crazy
01:11 <Soul_keeper> i've pushed mine up to 74C before
01:12 <Soul_keeper> think i was trying for 3.4 then or something
01:13 <MTughan> I did attempt a 3.42GHz clock. That didn't last long after I started Prime95. :)
01:13 <Soul_keeper> you could probably hit 3.6 on default voltage with extreme cooling i bet
01:14 <Soul_keeper> i hear of people running at 3.8 on forums
01:14 <Soul_keeper> likely below ambient cooling tho
01:14 <MTughan> Probably. As it is, I think I could get somewhat better temps with a reapplication of the thermal paste and pointing the cooler up/down.
01:15 <Soul_keeper> once the thermal paste settles for a few days it operates at it's best
01:15 <MTughan> In the Antec Nine Hundred, I have that big fan on top that's blowing mostly cool air ATM. It'd probably offer better cooling than the 120mm.
01:16 <MTughan> I can actually give you the exact date I started stressing the comp... Dec 26.
01:16 <Soul_keeper> fun
01:16 <MTughan> I attached to ABC and let it run for 24 hours to start off the process. :D
01:17 <MTughan> Yeow... -9C out there, I have the window open.
01:19 <MTughan> What cooler do you use anyway?
01:19 <MTughan> I'm thinking if I'm going to do any more spending on this comp soon, it'll be to either up the RAM to 8GB or replace the CPU cooler.
01:20 <Soul_keeper> i'm loving my new vid card :)
01:20 <Soul_keeper> mem is high on my list also tho
01:20 <MTughan> What vid card?
01:21 <Soul_keeper> gf 9800GT
01:21 <MTughan> Heh, just looked at the clock on this laptop... 2.53GHz seems paltry now. :D
01:21 <MTughan> BOINCing on it?
01:21 <Soul_keeper> yes
01:21 <MTughan> How did I know... :P
01:21 <Soul_keeper> still kinda early to tell, but it looks like it's doubled my RAC
01:22 <MTughan> Nice!
01:22 <Soul_keeper> not bad for 120 bucks :)
01:22 <MTughan> I'm hoping AI comes out with their ATI app soon... I like the gaming aspect of a 4870, but not much to BOINC ATM.
01:22 <MTughan> I only have one game that can really push the GPU though, and it's only on a 1440x900 screen too.
01:23 <Soul_keeper> yeah
01:23 <Soul_keeper> i think we might have to wait for opencl to come out before things really heat up
01:23 <MTughan> More than likely.
01:24 <MTughan> I'm just wondering if it'll be supported on the current cards, or only on newer cards too.
01:24 <Soul_keeper> hopefully it'll be the same cutoff point
01:24 <Soul_keeper> ati 4xxx series and nv 8xxx series and up
01:25 <MTughan> You mean for CUDA and Brook+?
01:25 <Soul_keeper> yeah
01:25 <Soul_keeper> should be the same for opencl i'd think
01:26 <MTughan> I hope so. Otherwise, not much use for my 4870, or your 9800.
01:26 <Soul_keeper> but there is a lot of beurocracy with standards bodies that have dozens of members so i'd expect it to take a long time
01:26 <Soul_keeper> i've got a radeon 3870 but i don't think it'll be supported
01:26 <MTughan> I don't think my 3470 will be either.
01:28 * efc VGAWonder :(
01:29 <Soul_keeper> i think folding@home was working on the 3xxx gpu's there for awhile just in windows, it's not thru boinc tho so i dunno
01:29 <MTughan> Yeah, I had it running for a bit, tried alongside BOINC.
01:29 <MTughan> Needed a CPU to do it though, wasn't worth it.
01:30 <Soul_keeper> i think the folding@home guys hate boinc, that's the impression i got on their forums after reading a few threads
01:30 <MTughan> Heh.
01:30 <MTughan> I don't know if I blame them.
01:31 <Soul_keeper> well i hate them :)
01:31 <Soul_keeper> i like boinc

04:06 <Soul_keeper> can't figure out how to do that either

04:08 <CoderForLife> um - I see several issues
04:08 <CoderForLife> open FILE1 then while <FILE>
04:09 <CoderForLife> shouldn't the while refer to FILE1?
04:09 <Soul_keeper> yes thanks
04:09 <CoderForLife> next, if you have more than one line in FILE1, stats_db will be overwritten with each line
04:10 <CoderForLife> might not be a problem in your case
04:11 <Soul_keeper> it's all on one line
04:11 <CoderForLife> see example 1 at http://perlmeme.org/howtos/perlfunc/split_function.html
04:13 <CoderForLife> read your line into $data, then split it into @values, then use foreach loop to print them
04:13 <CoderForLife> get that to work before worrying about the database access

10:32 *** jackygrahamez has joined #boinc
10:49 *** sv2_ has joined #boinc
10:49 <sv2_> morning..
10:49 <jackygrahamez> hi
10:50 <sv2_> got a couple of questions... looking for a possible framework for a distributed application/process.. and wanted to talk to someone who's knowlegable about boinc..
10:51 <jackygrahamez> shoot
10:51 <sv2_> thanks...
10:52 <sv2_> i'm considering a crawler kind of app... i'll have a separate script for each site i crawl...
10:52 <sv2_> i'll have ~5000 of these scripts...
10:52 <sv2_> i'd like a process that allows me to submit these scripts to the given client servers in my network...
10:53 <sv2_> as well as the ability to monitor the overall health of the apps/systems/etc...
10:53 <PovAdct_w> BOINC isn't really made to send a specific thing to a specific client
10:53 <sv2_> eventually, i'll think about running all of this on the amazon ec2 cloud system..
10:54 <sv2_> does boinc allow me to send the 'next' thing to the 'next available/ready' client?
10:54 <PovAdct_w> boinc lets you put a bunch of stuff in the "work to do" queue, then clients grab from it
10:55 <sv2_> ok.. so it's a client pull mechanism...
10:55 <PovAdct_w> yes, clients never open any ports
10:55 <jackygrahamez> I wrote some code that submits to specific clients that I own and later David added a little code built in to create workunits for specific clients
10:55 <PovAdct_w> clients do HTTP requests to the server asking for work
10:56 <sv2_> hmm.. if clients don't open ports.. how do they download the 'work' to be run on the client box..
10:56 <sv2_> got it....
10:56 <PovAdct_w> same way your web browser does
10:56 <sv2_> so the client does open a port.. just a basic http port..
10:56 <PovAdct_w> not a listening port
10:56 <PovAdct_w> it's an outgoing connection
10:56 <sv2_> right..
10:57 <sv2_> hmm..
10:57 <PovAdct_w> in your case you control all the clients, right?
10:58 <sv2_> so i could have a boinc client.. fire back to the server.. get the next work app...
10:58 <sv2_> PovAdct_w - yes...
10:58 <PovAdct_w> that is, they're all computers under your control?
10:58 <sv2_> yes..
10:58 <PovAdct_w> then you could force all clients to immediately request work after you add it to the queue
10:58 <PovAdct_w> usually, you'd have to wait for clients to do their periodic connection
10:59 <sv2_> the boinc client, running on the client machine, will be an app i create/modify, based on a boinc template, yes/no?
10:59 <PovAdct_w> no
10:59 <PovAdct_w> the boinc client contacts the server, downloads your app, runs it, returns result, fetches more work
10:59 <PovAdct_w> decides what project to run next
10:59 <PovAdct_w> etc
11:00 <sv2_> got it... that's what i wanted to hear!!
11:00 <PovAdct_w> your app uses mostly network?
11:01 <PovAdct_w> any app that doesn't keep the CPU at 100% while it runs isn't exactly a "typical" BOINC app (but there are still mechanisms to handle that)
11:02 <sv2_> PovAdct_w - it will... in the crawling phase.. a lot of http gets/page fetches/parsing of data.. i'll be having abuch of data returned in a datafile, to be sent back to the boinc master..
11:02 <sv2_> i assume i can have multiple boinc clients on a single client box..
11:03 <sv2_> does boinc provide monitoring functionality.. to monitor the overall health/status of the various client systems..
11:03 <PovAdct_w> yes
11:04 <PovAdct_w> the user interface is on a separate program, talking over TCP to the client
11:04 <sv2_> ok....
11:04 <PovAdct_w> you can make your own program / scripts that uses the same protocol to control *all* the clients
11:04 <PovAdct_w> and, for example, force them to contact the server immediately
11:04 <sv2_> now... is there someone i could talk to on the phone about what i'm considering...
11:04 <sv2_> PovAdct_w - are you in the US/Canada?
11:05 <PovAdct_w> btw, there's usually no point in running multiple clients in the same computer, and it may cause problems if you do
11:05 <sv2_> what kind of issues?
11:05 <jackygrahamez> Yeah I was wondering about that
11:05 <PovAdct_w> I'm in Argentina and my spoken English is nowhere as good as my written English ;)
11:06 <sv2_> PovAdct_w - can i email you what i'm considering in more detail..
11:06 <PovAdct_w> well, for example, they'd all try to use the same port number for the "GUI control"
11:07 <PovAdct_w> sv2_: I sent you my email address on a private message
11:08 <PovAdct_w> ok, back in an hour or so
11:08 <sv2_> PovAdct_w - let me back up a second... you said i can have a single boinc client running..
11:08 * PovAdct_w hits breaks
11:08 <sv2_> but i'm assuming i can force the client to keep gettting additional working client apps.../
11:08 <PovAdct_w> yes, it's best if you run one boinc client per computer
11:09 <jackygrahamez> Are these multicore computers?
11:09 <sv2_> so i can have multiple numbers of my client apps running.. on a given client server?
11:09 <PovAdct_w> the client may be running multiple apps at the same time though
11:09 <PovAdct_w> for example, it would run two CPU intensive apps on a dualcore
11:09 <sv2_> right... no prob...
11:10 <sv2_> i'm assuming that boinc allows the client app to send back data on the client server resources..
11:10 <jackygrahamez> yes
11:10 <jackygrahamez> I test my apps on my server sometimes
11:11 <PovAdct_w> support for network apps (that don't use CPU) isn't quite good, and BOINC developers kind of don't care about improving it (long story, let's just say getting GPUs supported quick gets them funding, even if they lose flexibility in the process)
11:11 <sv2_> cool..
11:11 <PovAdct_w> sv2_: apps create output files, when the app finishes, boinc uploads those files
11:12 <PovAdct_w> usually it's just one file though
11:12 <sv2_> so i'm also assuming that i can restrict a boinc client from requesting new work, if it's resources are already beyond some limit..
11:12 <PovAdct_w> (projects that need to upload a lot of files just make the app put them in a .zip on completion :P)

13:08 <Niklas_E> tried that but said something about wrong version
13:08 <MTughan> Do you have the specific error message?
13:09 <Soul_keeper> the seti devs seem to like 6.4.5
13:10 <Niklas_E> lets see,
13:10 <Soul_keeper> i'm using 6.5.0 but others have said there are bugs in this version
13:11 <MTughan> I'm running 6.2.19.
13:11 <Niklas_E> mån 5 jan 2009 18.54.02|SETI@home|Message from server: Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a version of Astropulse.
13:11 <MTughan> Your app_info... Do you know where the project data files are?
13:11 <Soul_keeper> did you try resetting the project ?
13:12 <Niklas_E> nope,

13:12 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: IIRC, resetting doesn't delete an app_info.
13:14 <MTughan> Yeow, this is one hot chip... Running with a higher FSB and lower multiplier, core 1 is steady at 77C.
13:14 <MTughan> I got 71 with a lower FSB and higher multiplier, and a higher final clock.
13:14 *** Novacrust has quit IRC
13:16 *** Novacrust has joined #boinc
13:17 <MTughan> One thing: will the higher multiplier just result in possibly higher memory speeds? Any use going with it over the lower FSB for BOINC?
13:18 <Soul_keeper> lower mult should translate to higher mem speeds, higher fsb speeds
13:18 <Soul_keeper> overall faster system
13:18 <MTughan> Yep, I'm just below a 1600MHz FSB now.
13:18 <Soul_keeper> that core temp is dangerous tho imo
13:18 <MTughan> I know...
13:19 <MTughan> Previous clock, 40MHz lower had the same temp.
13:19 <MTughan> I'm wondering if I should stick with the lower FSB and higher multiplier?
13:19 <Soul_keeper> well with a higher fsb, you could drop the core clock lower and still get the same or better performance
13:19 <MTughan> I definitely wouldn't up the voltage right now.
13:20 <MTughan> What does the multiplier do in terms of how a processor calculates anyway? Any idea?
13:20 <Soul_keeper> if you do got with the higher mult, then run the memory slow with the tightest timings you can
13:21 <Soul_keeper> it's basically fsb x mult = cpu freq
13:21 <MTughan> I know, but I'm wondering what effect it has.
13:21 <Soul_keeper> and mem dividers are basically a multiple/fraction of fsb also
13:21 <Soul_keeper> but the way they calculate things with HT and quad/dual pumped stuff you gotta look things up
13:22 <Soul_keeper> just a math equation

13:38 <Soul_keeper> depends what your motherboard/mem can handle
13:38 <Soul_keeper> you'll have start messing with voltages/timings
13:38 <MTughan> I'm more than likely not going to be able to run 1:1 FSB:RAM.
13:38 <MTughan> That would require pushing the FSB to 2132MHz overall.
13:38 <Soul_keeper> could corrupt your bios if you got a cheesy motherboard
13:39 <MTughan> It's an Asus P5Q-E, P45 chipset.

14:34 <PovAddict> I'd guess *most* are 64-bit for performance reasons...
14:34 <PovAddict> using a 32-bit OS on a 64-bit server is a waste, and all fast CPUs are 64-bit nowadays
14:34 <jackygrahamez> That's what I was hoping
14:34 <PovAddict> for the BOINC server itself, 64-bit doesn't really matter; but the database server (MySQL) would surely benefit

17:06 <PovAddict> that's a lot of volts :)
17:06 <xcamel> Steinmetz labs used it to explode telephone poles.

17:10 <PovAddict> the Earth has 700nF? I can hold that on a finger
17:11 <PovAddict> I think I get this code now...
17:11 <CoderForLife> thinking waaaaay back to college physics, I thought it was a couple farads
17:12 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: deflation
17:12 <PovAddict> or is that devaluation... not sure which matches best for analogy
17:13 <xcamel> cfl: crust to core is a huge capacitor - millions of farads
17:13 <PovAddict> here's an interesting one
17:14 <PovAddict> if you suspend a workunit, BOINC won't fetch any more work from that project
17:14 <xcamel> uh-huh
17:14 <jackygrahamez> I'm getting errors on this 64-bit RH5 when I run _autosetup
17:14 <Romulus> Title: pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at pastebin.com)
17:15 <PovAddict> that is, if the project has any workunit in suspended-by-user state, BOINC won't get work from it
17:15 <jackygrahamez> Any ideas?
17:15 <xcamel> suspend a project, and boinc will fill empties like a banchee
17:15 <PovAddict> that hit me once...
17:15 <PovAddict> I had PrimeGrid WUs from different sub-projects
17:15 <PovAddict> I suspended one of them, because I wanted to run from the other subproject for the race
17:15 <PovAddict> and then BOINC wouldn't get any more PG work
17:16 <PovAddict> omg
17:16 <jackygrahamez> I should create sub-PrimeGrid
17:16 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez: the mess they are doing with translation files has broken compilation
17:16 <xcamel> nail-on-head, POV
17:17 <jackygrahamez> ah thanks I noticed several updates today...I'll give it a day
17:17 <jackygrahamez> or I could also take older versions
17:34 <MTughan> Confirmed, the Aqua app is written entirely in Fortran.
17:35 * CoderForLife programmed a lot in FORTRAN
17:36 <MTughan> Reason I had asked is that they were having trouble getting the app to run on OS X Tiger systems, because they were compiling on a Leopard box. The flags I know work for C and its derivatives, but I have no idea how to do it with Fortran.

18:32 <jasong> Hey, if I wanted to buy an e-book reader for the sole purpose of being able to own a bunch of programming tutorials without cluttering up my space, are there enough good programming e-books to make that worthwhile?
18:32 <CoderForLife> no billing in November, but now I've gotten charges in December and January
18:33 * CoderForLife grumbles
18:34 <CoderForLife> what's the difference between a programming e-book and a programming book on an e-book reader?
18:34 <CoderForLife> answer: nothing
18:34 <jasong> I know that. Did I phrase it badly, or are you complaining about redundancy. or...?
18:34 <CoderForLife> do a Kindle and buy a book, or do one of the other e-book readers, imho
18:35 <jasong> Yeah, I'm meaning to buy a reader, but I want to wait until they start making them in color
18:35 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: his question is if there are good enough programming e-books to make the reader worth having
18:35 <PovAddict> jasong: why'd you want color?
18:36 <jasong> because it will make e-magazines look a TON better
18:36 <CoderForLife> the question is, are there programming books good enough - the reader is just a delivery mechanism
18:36 <jasong> true
18:36 <PovAddict> can you get any book in e-book form?
18:37 * KathrynM is waiting for her python books to arrive.
18:37 <CoderForLife> pert much now
18:37 <KathrynM> the dead tree variety.
18:37 <KathrynM> I do better with stuff I can write in.
18:37 <CoderForLife> have you looked at the Amazon Kindle store?
18:37 <CoderForLife> many programming books
18:37 <PovAddict> brb fireworks
18:37 <CoderForLife> which ones would you buy, Kindle or not?
18:38 <jasong> Yes, I have, it's mostly the thing about most readers not being able to display in color that's keeping me from buying a reader
18:38 <CoderForLife> ok, there's a stumbling block
18:38 <jasong> yes, a major one
18:39 <CoderForLife> yup, if color is a requirement, stick with paper books
18:39 <jasong> Well, if there's a decent number of good tutorials, I might actually take the leap
18:39 <PovAddict> missed them
18:39 * CoderForLife <- Kindle owner for about a year
18:39 <jasong> Do you like it?
18:40 <CoderForLife> s'ok - mostly use it for reading on airplanes
18:40 <CoderForLife> no technical reading
18:40 <jasong> Yeah, I have this fear that something better will show up while it'
18:40 <jasong> s still on back order

18:44 <CoderForLife> what's it called when you have the credit card company reverse the charges?
18:44 <PovAddict> I recall hearing of "chargeback"
18:44 <KathrynM> yeah, chargeback sounds about right to me
18:44 <CoderForLife> I think you're right
18:44 <CoderForLife> thanks
18:44 <PovAddict> but then I don't even have a credit card
18:46 <jasong> Credit cards are something greedy people get so that they can buy cool stuff, but it makes the long-term value of their labor much less than they realize
18:46 <jasong> I don't think credit should be used for anything except houses and cars
18:46 <CoderForLife> Credit cards is how business is done these days
18:46 <PovAddict> jasong:
18:46 <PovAddict> yeah
18:46 <PovAddict> people who have multiple credit cards and use them to pay each other
18:47 <jasong> True, but if you don't intend to pay it off at the end of the month, you probably think you're more intelligent than you are

19:43 <sv2_> PovAddict - hey.. can you recommend a solid/good how to install boinc server guide for fedora/centos?
19:43 <xcamel> where's the big red "Just F'n Fillit!" button?
19:44 <PovAddict> this took me long enough! I've yet to touch any GUI code :)
19:45 <PovAddict> a button saying "just fill the cache" doesn't make much sense though
19:45 <PovAddict> it's what BOINC is supposed to always do
19:45 <xcamel> it would make people happy, and you would be a hero. Would that work for you?
19:46 <PovAddict> what project should it get work from?
19:46 <PovAddict> ^ that decision is what most of the ugly work fetch code is about
19:46 <PovAddict> so what you're asking is "fix the scheduler/workfetch" :) (which I can't do overnight)
19:49 <PovAddict> a "fill the cache" button is like a "stop system from crashing" button... why would it be a button??
19:50 <xcamel> simply, the highlighted selection in the project list... or the <my project> in boinc_cmd
19:51 <xcamel> btw.. I dream in color, and think in GUI
19:52 <xcamel> ps: "stop system from crashing" is a 12lb (5.9 kilo) sledge hammer.

22:02 <MTughan> I'm starting to consider water cooling, yeah...
22:03 <MTughan> Canada just beat Sweden in the WJHC.
22:03 <MTughan> 5-1.
22:05 <PovAddict> consider lowering that clock too
22:05 <PovAddict> would help a lot in cooling down
22:06 <MTughan> I will. I'm just trying a "blend" preset in P95 now, as that'll test more without stressing the proc as much.
22:06 <MTughan> I can hit 3.27GHz with standard voltages though.
22:07 <MTughan> That maxes at 71C with the large load of P95.
22:07 <PovAddict> taking it down to stock speeds would improve my RAC too (when viewed next to yours)
22:08 <MTughan> You wish... :P
22:08 <PovAddict> whats the max temp?
22:08 <MTughan> Maxes about 63C with ABC.
22:09 <PovAddict> I mean max supported before it blows up (or starts automatic protection like underclocking)
22:09 <MTughan> Oh, dunno. It didn't at 83C.
22:10 <PovAddict> P4 apparently can cope 75C... my p4 has always been close to the limit
22:10 <MTughan> I was always around 68C on my P4.
22:10 <PovAddict> atm Im more worried about the hard disk on that computer
22:11 <MTughan> My HDDs are at 16C. xD
22:11 <PovAddict> ... whats the room temperature
22:11 <MTughan> Probably around there, if not slightly warmer.
22:12 <MTughan> Windows's open, -7C outside.
22:13 <PovAddict> my computer room is 28C right now
22:14 <jasong> lol, is that good or bad?
22:14 <MTughan> Yeah, I don't think my heatsink is dissipating as much heat as it could... When the CPU was at 78C, I took a chance and touched some of the heatpipes on the cooler.
22:14 * jasong never learned to tell
22:14 <MTughan> They were cold.
22:14 <PovAddict> anyway the P4 disk reaches 40C loaded; not good

22:16 <jasong> Yeah, that's hot
22:16 <MTughan> &math convert 16 C to F
22:16 <Romulus> MTughan: 60.8
22:16 <MTughan> 61F on the hard disks here, probably a good indicator of ambient.
22:17 <jasong> lol, that's pretty cold
22:17 <PovAddict> I insist: dry ice would be interesting to try
22:18 <PovAddict> water ice of course wouldnt work on a computer
22:18 <jasong> I tried dried ice once, lost a bunch of skin on my tongue...Or is that not what you meant? ;)
22:18 <MTughan> Oil submersion is too expensive an inconvenient for me.
22:18 <PovAddict> what temperature is dry ice at?
22:19 <MTughan> -79C/-109F.
22:19 <MTughan> Wikipedia++
22:19 <PovAddict> oil submerged cooling is crazy...
22:20 <PovAddict> hmm like watercooling was in the past... maybe in the future we'll think it's normal?
22:21 <PovAddict> hmm 79C... seems too cold, could crack stuff from the temperature change (like PCB plastic)
22:21 <sv2_> you really want liquid nitrogen/oxygen...
22:21 <MTughan> Try LN2. IIRC, it's -191C.
22:21 <sv2_> played with it years ago when i worked at nasa....
22:22 <sv2_> fun stuff...
22:22 <MTughan> lol
22:22 <PovAddict> sv2: thats dangerous to handle, and i cant exactly pour it insid a computer case :)
22:22 <sv2_> get a some of that in a styrofoam cup.. throw it in the air!!
22:22 <MTughan> Hmm... How would would LN2 and an IV drip work?

22:25 <PovAddict> smoking?
22:25 <sv2_> anything else i need to do?
