03:57 *** Tidus has quit IRC

04:01 *** Tidus has joined #boinc

04:06 <Tidus> no pong reply... hate it when that happens

04:06 <CoderForLife> yup

04:06 <Tidus> sucks because my proxy silently drops icmp at times

04:07 <CoderForLife> wouldn't want ping to be reliable

04:08 *** Tidus has quit IRC

04:08 *** Tidus has joined #boinc

04:08 <Tidus> and we died again...

04:08 <CoderForLife> you didn't have to take me seriously

04:09 <Tidus> lol i probably didn't hear what you said

04:09 <CoderForLife> "wouldn't want ping to be reliable"

04:09 <Tidus> lol

04:12 <CoderForLife> duh - "Predictions about the future are always risky"

04:13 <Tidus> yeah...

04:13 <Tidus> seems to be one of those always true statements

04:13 <CoderForLife> I am very good at predicting the past

04:13 <Tidus> rofl...

04:13 <FreeLarry58> there's a past?????

04:14 <Tidus> the past is what makes us who we are

04:14 <CoderForLife> somewhere back there in the history of time

04:14 <FreeLarry58> thought there was only the now

04:15 <FreeLarry58> of course the rockies did grow into fine straping lads from those little bumps on the plain

04:15 <CoderForLife> you are an eyewitness to this event?

04:16 <FreeLarry58> well did stub my toe once there

04:16 <CoderForLife> you need to change your nick to FreeLarry5,800,000

04:16 <FreeLarry58> next you'll want an invite to talk to paul bunyon

04:16 <FreeLarry58> lol

04:17 <FreeLarry58> a little to warm then

04:17 <CoderForLife> imagine the size of BabeBurgers

04:17 <CoderForLife> and blue!

04:17 <FreeLarry58> lol they were a bit tought

04:17 <FreeLarry58> tough

04:17 * Tidus stares at the "@" beside CoderForLife's name

04:18 <FreeLarry58> humm must be a moderator/op

04:19 <Tidus> i knew that... just wondering when the split happened.

04:19 <Tidus> he never wears ops unless a split happened.

04:20 <FreeLarry58> been noticiing a few getting op assigned when they sign in

04:20 <Tidus> depends on how the access list is set up

04:20 <Tidus> in another channel i'm in, my access level allows me to get ops, but it'll only voice me when i sign in

04:20 <FreeLarry58> yup

04:21 <FreeLarry58> whats the worse they can do to you - ban for life?

04:21 <FreeLarry58> course would miss the banter

04:22 <CoderForLife> hmm

04:22 <FreeLarry58> uh oh now he's thinking

04:23 <CoderForLife> watsa matta Tidus?

04:23 * FreeLarry58 thinks he may be a bit green CoderForLife

04:23 <CoderForLife> ah

04:23 *** ChanServ sets mode: -o CoderForLife

04:24 <CoderForLife> there - mere mortal again

04:26 <CoderForLife> the house is making different popping noises at -4F

04:26 <FreeLarry58> a little temperature gradiant thru the walls

04:27 <CoderForLife> yup

04:27 <Tidus> lol

04:27 <CoderForLife> right now it gets a grade of -4F

04:28 <Tidus> FreeLarry58: not entirely green... been an op in a social channel for nearly 3 yrs now

04:28 <Tidus> i just never wear ops unless someone needs the banstick

04:28 <FreeLarry58> lol 70 on one side -4 on other 74 degree differential

04:28 <FreeLarry58> a little stress there

04:28 <CoderForLife> it makes a difference =)

04:29 <FreeLarry58> definite

04:29 <FreeLarry58> did you check your antifreeze level for the your watercooling system

04:30 <CoderForLife> watercooling? for my mainframe?

04:30 <FreeLarry58> sure... you are OC'ing it to 500% aren'tyou

04:30 <CoderForLife> isn't everyone?

04:31 <FreeLarry58> of course - called stock here

04:33 <FreeLarry58> humm pending on abc jumpd 2500 in one day

04:33 <FreeLarry58> einstien down to 3300

04:34 <CoderForLife> He's not as smart as he used to be?

04:34 <FreeLarry58> nope - i started moving machines to new project for next one to get to 1M mark

04:35 <CoderForLife> there's a new E@H?

04:36 <FreeLarry58> reached 1M there - noticed as i was leaving it the new wu's claiming less but granting slightly more than old

04:36 <FreeLarry58> almost a factor of 3 to claimed instead of 2.5

04:37 <CoderForLife> hmm

04:38 <FreeLarry58> i may be way off of my math also

04:39 <CoderForLife> I accepted that possibility right from the start

04:39 * FreeLarry58 lets see 1 + 1 = 11

04:40 <FreeLarry58> thats 3 right

04:40 <CoderForLife> when + is the symbol for string concatenation, absolutely

04:40 <FreeLarry58> lol

04:40 <CoderForLife> 1 + 1 = 10

04:41 <FreeLarry58> noooo must be 9

04:41 <Tidus> there are 10 types of people in the world. those who speak binary and those who don't

04:41 <FreeLarry58> octal also

04:41 * CoderForLife sees that Tidus can type jokes faster than he can

04:41 <FreeLarry58> and don't forget those hex people

04:42 <CoderForLife> 0xPeople

04:42 <FreeLarry58> Tidus did you ever give those mice thier ultimate answer?

04:42 <Tidus> FreeLarry58: huh?

04:42 <FreeLarry58> 42

04:42 <Tidus> oh

14:41 <MTughan> For now... Just wait a couple days. ;)

14:42 <PovAddict> yeah

14:42 <PovAddict> just wait till he blows his computer up with too much overclocking

14:42 <MTughan> Heh. Not likely.

14:43 <MTughan> MW released app v0.8.

14:45 <hawmps>

14:45 <hawmps>

14:45 <hawmps> phone cams are not that great

14:45 <MTughan> What's a photovoltaic inverter?

14:47 <Soul_keeper> probably just means it turns the dc from the solar panels (photovoltaic is a type of panel) into ac

14:48 <Soul_keeper> it's tied to the grid, so theoretically you can run the meter backwards and get payed/credited by the electric company  for giving them electricity :)

14:49 <MTughan> Yeah, that makes sense.

14:49 <PovAddict> that happened in practice too

14:49 <PovAddict> I read about a man with quite a small house and solar panels on the roof

14:50 <PovAddict> he got paid by the electric company

14:54 <hawmps> converts the dc current from the solar panels to AC for the grid

14:54 <hawmps> that one is peak rated at 63KW

14:55 <DerMeister> Here you usually don't use the electricity from solar panels yourself. You sell it completly to the electric company.

14:56 *** Tidus has joined #boinc

14:57 <PovAddict> DerMeister: so you don't even need batteries?

14:57 <DerMeister> No.

14:57 <PovAddict> (electricity comes from the company during the night)

14:57 <PovAddict> cool stuff

14:58 <DerMeister> not only during the night - all the electricity you use.

14:58 <Tidus> oh so you have a second meter installed going the other direction for what you generate?

14:58 <PovAddict> yeah but during the day, you could say you're using the one you generated :)

14:58 <DerMeister> yeah, but that would be stupid

14:58 <PovAddict> who knows, the same electrons may go back and forth

14:59 <PovAddict> :)

14:59 <DerMeister> because you get more money for selling the electricity than you need for buying it.

14:59 <Tidus> DerMeister: so there's second meter on your house pointing back upstream for what you generate?

15:00 <DerMeister> Tidus: We don't have solar panels - but yes, I would guess that there would be a second meter if we had some panels.

15:00 <Tidus> ah ok, i thought you generated your own juice

15:01 <MTughan_> It's Jay who does, or at least has pictures of it.

15:01 <Tidus> ah ok

15:10 <MTughan> I think I like this keyboard better though. The orange looks quite nice, and the LCD looks like it was meant to be there. In the original, I think it looks like it was added on.

15:10 <MTughan> Heh, more like 4, 6, and 5. :P

15:11 <Tidus> oh yeah... she did get it backwards.

15:11 <MTughan> For just seeing bits and pieces though, it's not bad.

15:11 <Tidus> yeah

15:12 <Tidus> it was more like 4, 6(5) and 5(6)

15:12 <Tidus> got bits and pieces from those two movies mixed in with each other

15:13 <MTughan> Anyway, about the G15... I thought the original looked like the LCD was tacked on.

15:13 <MTughan> The current G11 looks like the original G15 without the LCD.

15:13 <Tidus> i liked the original because i could close it

15:13 <MTughan> Hmm, looks like many people missed the other G keys...,en

15:13 <Romulus> <> (at

15:14 <Tidus> dark gaming sessions, the lcd got a little bright but i couldn't turn the keyboard brightness down or i couldnt see the other keys

15:14 <MTughan> They have two different brightness levesl in here, although I usually just leave it on full.

15:15 <Tidus> and the G19's still only got 12

15:15 <Tidus> the original G15 had 18

15:15 <Tidus> and i used the crap out of those

15:15 <MTughan> Oh, only 12? I knew the original had 18.

15:15 <MTughan> Huh, I missed that...

15:15 <MTughan> They also have this:,en

15:15 <Romulus> <> (at

15:17 <Tidus> uh, no

15:18 <Tidus> i'd rather take the G11

15:18 <Tidus> even though it's missing the lcd

15:19 <MTughan> I haven't found too much use for the G keys myself. I play mostly racing games.

15:19 <MTughan> Main controls there are the arrow keys and the space bar.

15:20 <Tidus> i play mostly MMOs

15:20 <Tidus> i used the G keys for multi-action macros

15:21 <Tidus> i kinda miss my g15...

15:22 <MTughan> Oh? You don't have it anymore?

15:22 <Tidus> nah, liquid damaged.

18:22 <CoderForLife> Rommie is a fan

18:22 <Soul_keeper> one of the singers for system of the down has the largest bong collection of any other singer i believe

18:22 <Soul_keeper> might be the drummer, can't remember

18:22 <xcamel> the 5th... Bawny Fwank waltzing out singing the "Elwmer Fuwd Hwuntng Song"

18:22 <MTughan> There's only one main singer...

18:23 <Soul_keeper> he was in that high times magazine when i was in HS and smoking

18:23 <Tidus> they both share the duty

18:24 <MTughan> Yeah, Aerials is probably my all time favourite SOAD song.

18:24 <MTughan> It was a little odd... When I started listening to SOAD about 6 months ago, I actually recognized Aerials right away. It was a little odd.

18:24 <Soul_keeper> i listen to a lot of country music anymore

21:54 <Rookie_69> Hmm... Some people don't see fit to talk to us lowlifes on Skype...

21:55 <wdsmia> Hmm must be talking about Michael

21:55 <Rookie_69> I didn't say that...

21:58 <MTughan> I don't have a microphone.

21:59 <Rookie_69> Not built into laptop?

22:00 <MTughan> This is the desktop. The laptop is in Fedora ATM.

22:00 <Tidus> i dont have one builtin on my laptop

22:00 <Rookie_69> We'll give him 12 hours to buy one...

22:01 <MTughan> And I don't have any transportation other than walking.

22:01 <MTughan> No computer stores near here, or any electronic stores.

22:01 <wdsmia> they do make skype for FC

22:01 <MTughan> Yes, and I have it on there. I don't think Fedora reads the microphone though.

22:01 <Rookie_69> You in Thunder Bay?

22:02 <Tidus> MTughan: make a test call to 'echo123'

22:02 <Tidus> that'll tell ya if it works or not

22:02 <MTughan> True.

22:02 <MTughan> Rookie_69: Nope, Ottawa.

22:04 <Rookie_69> Back in college town, huh? Say Hi to my sister then.

22:05 <MTughan> "Problem with audio playback".

22:05 <MTughan> Seems Skype doesn't like pulseaudio or something...

22:05 <Tidus> run it from the command line

22:05 <Tidus> 'padsp skype'

22:05 <MTughan> Ah, emulate OSS...

22:06 <MTughan> Or does that emulate ALSA?

22:06 <Tidus> emulates alsa

22:06 <MTughan> "Cannot open shared library /usr/lib/alsa-lib/"

22:07 <Tidus> fun.

22:07 <Tidus> try running it with aoss instead of padsp

22:08 <MTughan> Hold on a sec, looking for a spoon...

22:09 <MTughan> Late night snack, Korean style spicy noodles.

22:09 <MTughan> aoss not found.

22:09 *** PovAddict has joined #boinc

22:09 <Tidus> lol

22:09 <Tidus> hm...

22:09 <MTughan> locate didn't find it either.

22:09 <Tidus> you on 64 bit fedora?

22:10 <MTughan> Yes.

22:10 <Tidus> that might explain a few things

22:10 <Tidus> need the 32 bit alsa libs and pulseaudio libs

22:10 <Tidus> otherwise 32 bit apps can't use sound

22:10 <MTughan> Might explain why Rhythmbox works...

22:11 <Tidus> the 32 and 64 bit binaries can coexist on a fedora machine

22:11 <Tidus> just append .i386 to the end of the package name

22:11 <MTughan> Yep, just looking for them now.

22:13 <MTughan> Hmm... Showed up in Pulseaudio, but no output. It's not muted.

22:13 <Tidus> weird.

22:14 <MTughan> Oh, I know why... Stupid me.

22:14 <MTughan> I plugged a short audio cable in the front inputs to shut the speakers off. xD

22:14 <Tidus> ROFL

22:15 <Tidus> add me to skype if you guys want. login name's seize_the_night

22:15 <MTughan> Hold on, seems I've got a phantom Skype process...

22:16 <Tidus> lol...

22:16 <Tidus> phantom process... hosed libraries...

22:16 <MTughan> It's up now. As for sound...

22:16 <MTughan> No go.

22:16 <PovAddict>

22:17 <MTughan> So let's try padsp again...

22:17 <Tidus> MTughan: have you installed all the necessary alsa and pulseaudio libraries for i386 instead of x86_64?

22:17 <MTughan> I believe so.

22:18 <MTughan> Still no go. The stream shows in Pulseaudio volume control, but no output.

22:18 <Tidus> weird

22:19 <Tidus> and echo123 isn't picking anything up?

22:19 <MTughan> Let's try external speakers...

22:19 <PovAddict> MTughan: ^ see link (when you can)

22:19 <MTughan> It's there, but faint...

22:19 <MTughan> Yeah, thanks Pov.

22:20 <MTughan> Hmm... Doing the test call rings, but no sound from the call.

22:20 <MTughan> All the sound devices are set to use Pulse.

22:21 <Tidus> i dont have a mic

22:22 <Tidus> i'm working on that.

22:22 <Tidus> brb

22:22 <MTughan> Oh well, I know Windows works.

22:23 <MTughan> PovAddict: lol, nice.

22:31 <PovAddict> <- now working

22:40 <KathrynM> I just want any sound in Fedora already

22:40 <KathrynM>

22:40 <Romulus> <> (at

22:41 <MTughan> I can play Rhythmbox, but seems Skype doesn't like it.

22:41 <Tidus> still missing a library

22:41 <MTughan> Ah, you commented...

22:41 <MTughan> Tidus: I checked all the i386 equiv libraries that were available.

22:42 <Tidus> and then you're sposed to restart the pulse sound server.

22:42 <Tidus> i think

22:42 <MTughan> Am I?

22:42 <Romulus> Rumor has it Am I is thinking about spamassassin, MTughan

22:42 <MTughan> forget "Am I"

22:42 <Tidus> not sure.

22:46 <Tidus> forget Am I

22:46 <Romulus> Gotcha, Tidus.

23:10 <Soul_keeper> i'm about to freaking lose it

23:11 <Rookie_69> Welcome to my club.

23:11 <Soul_keeper> can't find the specs for my monitor anywhere

23:11 <Tidus> what kind of monitor?

23:11 <Soul_keeper> the manufacturer don't have them on their website

23:11 <Soul_keeper> and google has no mention of it

23:11 <Soul_keeper> viewsonic g220fb crt

23:12 <Tidus> maximum resolution?

23:12 <Soul_keeper> not to be confused with the sony g220

23:12 <PovAddict> ah that's why, crts are so last decade

23:12 <Soul_keeper> i need the sync ranges

23:12 <Rookie_69> &google viewsonicg220 fb

23:12 <Romulus> Rookie_69: No matches found. (Search took 0.19 seconds)

23:12 <Soul_keeper> the screen is flickering so i need these sync ranges right, probably gonna burn it up

23:12 <Rookie_69> Sux.

23:13 <Tidus> Soul_keeper:  Frequency Fh: 30-110KHz; Fv: 50-160Hz

23:13 <Tidus> from

23:13 <Romulus> <> (at

23:13 <Soul_keeper> Tidus, how did you find that ?

23:13 <Tidus> google

23:14 <Tidus> search query: viewsonic g220fb

23:14 <PovAddict> 160hz??

23:14 <Soul_keeper>         HorizSync 31.5-110

23:14 <Soul_keeper>         VertRefresh 90-180

23:14 <Soul_keeper> that's what i'm running now, could explain the flickering

23:14 <Tidus> Soul_keeper: you'll want to allow refresh to dip under 70

23:14 <Tidus> 50-160 is what should be there

23:14 <Tidus> otherwise you'll be unable to use any resolution higher than 1600x1200

23:15 <Tidus> that monitor'll go up to 2048x1536, albeit at 60hz

23:15 <Soul_keeper> i'm running 2048x1536  now

23:15 <Tidus> i'd back it down to 1600x1200 to save your eyes :P

23:16 <Tidus> it'll run at least 85hz at that res

23:17 <Soul_keeper> yeah i need the extra screen tho :)

23:17 <Tidus> get a newer monitor :P

23:17 <Tidus> or a second one

23:18 <Soul_keeper> i'm poor

23:18 <Tidus> a 24" lcd can be had fairly cheap, does 1920x1200

23:19 <Soul_keeper> i live off 6 cent peices of bread, the monitor will have to wait till next year

23:19 *** mydog2 has joined #boinc

23:20 <Hodapp> how cheap is "fairly cheap"?

23:20 <PovAddict> Soul_keeper: if I win the lottery, do you want some?

23:21 <Soul_keeper> PovAddict, :)  of course

23:21 <Tidus> under 300 USD

23:21 <Soul_keeper> i lost like 4 grand on the stock market this week

23:21 <Soul_keeper> i'm unemployed and can't pay next months bills,  so the monitor will have to wait :)

23:22 <mydog2> what are you guys looking to buy?

23:23 <Soul_keeper> ok i'll try those sync ranges now brb
