02:43 <MTughan> Although 230GB was a lot of data back in 2001.
02:44 <Tidus> yeah
02:45 <Tidus> but 2gb is an annoyingly low cap
02:45 <MTughan> Agreed. In this day and age. I don't think DVDs were around in 2001.
02:46 <MTughan> One CD is 700MB, although it's a small cap for a month.
02:47 <efc> Wonder if they might have trouble collecting that, you could argue they could have taken reasonable measures once the cap was exceeded by triple or whatever
02:48 <efc> thats $45 per CD or so..

04:28 <CoderForLife> I plan to do exactly that in just a bit

04:56 <FreeLarry> think so
04:57 <CoderForLife> in a multi-time zone world, afternoon means lots of things
04:57 <MTughan> I would assume PST.
04:57 <FreeLarry> with M$ figure afternoon for westcoast america
04:57 <FreeLarry> pst

08:29 <Soul_keeper> talking about 800+ billion
08:29 <XioNYC> By pronouncing "NOO-clee-err", he's already surpassed his predecessor.

08:30 <Soul_keeper> big government scares me
08:30 <XioNYC> No government scares me.
08:30 <jackygrahamez> it seems like both conservative and liberal economists are saying the same thing, in our current financial crissis, government intervention is necessary to keep people employed and in there homes
08:31 <XioNYC> (You can read that both ways, btw)
08:31 <Soul_keeper> just wait till they are in your bedroom

08:32 <Soul_keeper> republican doesn't always translate to conservative. i guess i got my own views on it tho
08:32 <jackygrahamez> they already are, banning gay marraige
08:32 <jackygrahamez> I agree Soul_keeper
08:32 <Soul_keeper> look up the libertarian party sometimes, i like their ideas
08:32 <jackygrahamez> they scare me
08:33 <Soul_keeper> who ?

09:08 <Soul_keeper> it's apparently just about identical the the original phenom, just a die shrink and lots more cache
09:08 <Soul_keeper> the DDR3 versions will come out next month
09:09 <MTughan> That's the AM3 socket, right?
09:09 <PovAdct_w> more cache is good
09:09 <Soul_keeper> i believe so
09:09 <Soul_keeper> but they'll be backwards compatible
09:09 <Soul_keeper> if you put it in an am3 board it'll use the ddr3 memory controller, in an older board it'll use the ddr2 memory controller
09:10 <jackygrahamez> Why won't they let me calculate the decay rate of my nuclear arsenal???
09:10 <MTughan> Backwards-compatible one way, but not the other. I don't remember which way is which...
09:10 <Soul_keeper> yeah your older cpu's won't work in the newer boards, but the newer cpu's will work in most the older boards
09:11 <MTughan> Yep. I thought it was the other way around, with more compatibility on the motherboard side, but I couldn't remember.

10:24 <sv2_> morning!!
10:25 <jackygrahamez> yo
10:26 <sv2_> hey jackygrahamez - got your email.... wrapperapp eh...
10:26 <sv2_> have you ever created a wrapper app?
10:27 <sv2_> has anyone?
10:27 <jackygrahamez> yes
10:27 <jackygrahamez> yoyo uses them too
10:27 <sv2_> i'm reading it now.. although i can't say for now.. that i see how to insert the python app..
10:27 <jackygrahamez> several other people do as well
10:27 <sv2_> wouldn't i still have to have a c stub app invoke/call the python script?
10:28 * PovAdct_w thinks the wrapper is inherently unreliable, and pointless if you have the source code of the app you want to use
10:28 <sv2_> chime in PovAdct_w - don't be shy!!!
10:28 <PovAdct_w> sv2_: the wrapper *is* a c stub app that invokes/calls whatever program you give it
10:28 <jackygrahamez> I do it quite frequently, how about i send you some examples of what I do
10:28 <PovAdct_w> it doesn't help you bundle the python interpreter though
10:29 <sv2_> jack.. look forward to it..
10:29 <sv2_> no problem there...
10:30 <jackygrahamez> since you own your machines you can install python on them or you can extract python at run-time and run your scripts through it
10:30 <PovAdct_w> I dunno if the wrapper would work to run stuff you already have in the system
10:30 <sv2_> in my mind.. if i ultmiately use the amazon ec2/3 service... then i'd have my own 'image' that the clients would run on... within this image would be all that the client app would need. this would include all python stuff, as well as all the crawling scripts..
10:31 <jackygrahamez> you can have it extract python in your slot directory
10:31 *** Starfury^ has quit IRC
10:32 <sv2_> PovAdct_w - this is part of the 64$ question that i'm trying to answer... does the boinc client allow the app to interact/run local programs.. my initial google research indicates that it should..
10:32 <PovAdct_w> in the way you'll probably be installing BOINC, it won't stop the app from doing anything
10:32 *** Aeternus has quit IRC
10:32 <PovAdct_w> I'm just wondering if the wrapper app as provided by BOINC would support running /usr/bin/python
10:33 <sv2_> right... which is ok.. if this were to run within the amazon situation.. wouldn't dare do this on public/user machines..
10:33 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc
10:33 <PovAdct_w> it would definitely work if you wrote your own wrapper but that's quite a task :)
10:33 <PovAdct_w> maybe not so much for your non-CPU-intensive app...
10:33 <sv2_> but then i seriously doubt that any rational user would want to run this anyway!!
10:34 <PovAdct_w> but usually the wrapper has to get the real app's CPU time and pass it to the boinc client, which is a platform-specific mess
10:34 <PovAdct_w> (otherwise the boinc client would only look at the wrapper's CPU time and think it's not doing anything, because the wrapper doesn't use any CPU by itself)
10:36 <sv2_> i could always have the stubb app do something dumb every x secs until the python script completes..
10:36 <PovAdct_w> in your case it doesn't matter, your app doesn't use CPU :)
10:37 <sv2_> not true.. the python scripts use a great deal of cpu.... they fetch.. and then parse the data, write it to a db/file..
10:37 <sv2_> file in this case..
10:38 <PovAdct_w> if they don't use 100% CPU constantly, they aren't "CPU intensive"
10:38 <sv2_> well.. if you put it that way!!
10:39 <sv2_> but i've run 10-50 of these things at once.. and seen my cpu 'top' get throttled...

20:54 <xcamel> I'm really getting to hate winter
20:54 <xcamel> dyed in the wool chill bigot.
20:54 <Rookie_69> I like winter... It's just all the cold and the snow that I hate.
20:54 <wdsmia> lol
20:55 <Rookie_69> ... and the dark.
20:55 <xcamel> oh yeah.. that global dimming stuff...
20:56 <xcamel> leaking away to the southern hemisphere..
20:56 <Rookie_69> You mean that doesn't refer to drivers' IQ's?
20:58 <PovAddict> I sooo need a new hard disk!!!
20:58 <PovAddict> I started downloading Windows 7 iso from MTughan's link
20:58 <PovAddict> I now have 820MB free
20:59 <Rookie_69> Lol! POV doesn't have a large enough Hard Drive.
20:59 <PovAddict> uh huh
21:02 <Rookie_69> Never mind... I can't even seem to keep my floppy drive working properly.
21:03 <Rookie_69> I blame it on Bill Gates.
21:03 <MTughan> I didn't include a floppy drive in this build.
21:04 <Rookie_69> Once in a blue moon it comes in handy.
21:04 <PovAddict> damn

22:19 <MTughan_> Finally... CoderForLife: Just got a keycode.
22:28 <Tidus> MTughan_: that's not really workin for me
22:28 <Tidus> Error
22:28 <Tidus> The site is currently experiencing technical difficulties, please check back in the next business day.
22:29 <MTughan_> It takes a couple refreshes.
22:29 <Tidus> after about 300 refreshes
22:29 <MTughan_> I think I had to peg MS 600+ times.
22:29 <Tidus> i've got the disks already... just need the damned key :P
22:29 <Tidus> why must they make this difficult?
22:30 <MTughan_> Because "they're adding more servers".
22:30 <MTughan_> I've got 97% of the disk, so I'm ready to go once I have that.
22:30 <Rookie_69> Did somebody mention Microsoft?
22:30 <Tidus> yeah... 2.5 million people hammering a few machines all at once kinda makes things crash
22:30 <MTughan_> Well, almost... I have to figure out if I can trash my XP partition for W7.
22:30 <Tidus> especially windwos
22:30 <Tidus> i'm lucky in the fact i have a disk i can empty for it
22:30 <wdsmia> thats $M
22:31 <Tidus> contains just an 80gb "slush" partition
22:32 <MTughan_> I have a Fedora 7 installation, but that's on the same disk as this OS, and I used it more, so there's probably stuff I do want off there.
22:34 <Tidus> yeah it's not giving me the key
22:35 <Tidus> i'm debating if i should pull out my spare 60gb lappy hdd so i don't have to worry about trashing a perfectly good dual boot setup
22:37 <Rookie_69> The software is free, but the key will cost you.
22:38 <wdsmia> spare drives are the way to go if you have one you can trash
22:38 <MTughan_> Tidus: Want me to attempt to get another key?
22:39 <Tidus> MTughan_: if you want to. dont have to though
22:40 <MTughan_> Ah nuts... It gave me the same code.
22:40 <MTughan_> One more try to confirm...
22:40 <MTughan_> Yeah, same code.
22:40 <MTughan_> What browser are you using Tidus?
22:40 <Tidus> both chrome and ie7
22:41 <MTughan_> I tried many a time in Firefox (my main browser) but couldn't get a code. Once I booted up IE7 (which I never use) and used that, I got one within about 10 tries.
22:41 <MTughan_> Maybe try to use a new browser.
22:42 <Tidus> i'm attempting ie7 again
22:43 <Tidus> how long ago did you try?
22:44 <MTughan_> I posted right after I got the code.
22:44 <MTughan_> So maybe 25 minutes ago.
22:44 <Tidus> hm.
22:44 <Tidus> yeah its not going anywhere for me
22:45 <MTughan_> Like I say, use a fresh browser. Maybe download Firefox, and use that.
22:45 <Tidus> eh, i'll just wait
22:45 <Tidus> based on what a friend of mine was tellin me, windows 7 at this stage isn't worth the lockups and random freezes
22:46 <Rookie_69> You mean there's a browser other than Firefox?
22:46 <MTughan_> What I heard is that it's quite stable.
22:46 <Tidus> see, a friend of mine was having nothing but trouble with it on 3 different computers
22:46 <MTughan_> Rookie_69: There's lots of other browsers... IE, Chrome, Safari, Netscape, Konqueror, lynx, Flock, and other obscure ones.
22:47 <MTughan_> Oh, Camino.
22:47 <Tidus> erase netscape from the list... hasn't been current for ages
22:47 <Tidus> and they dont make browsers anymore
22:47 <MTughan_> Maybe, but it's still around.
22:47 <Tidus> but you also have galeon
22:47 <Tidus> dillo
22:48 <MTughan_> Yeah. In no way do I claim that to be a comprehensive list.
22:49 <Rookie_69> To steal a quote, "Youth is wasted on the young:.
22:49 <Rookie_69> Stupid keyboard.
