03:48 <ELGono> finally back online
03:48 <Tank_Master> wb
03:49 <ELGono> will punish some admin today for not powering on box after finishing repairs in serverroom
03:49 <CoderForLife> b
03:49 <ELGono> 14h offline ;(
03:50 <Tank_Master> LOL
03:50 <ELGono> moo don
03:50 <Tidus> ouch
03:50 <CoderForLife> as if being an admin wasn't punishment enough
03:50 <ELGono> hehe
03:50 <ELGono> shutting down a computer by mistake costs a box of beer here
03:51 <CoderForLife> morning JR
03:51 <ELGono> not powering it up it again .... one box more ;)
03:51 <Tidus> those cases of beer get expensive if ya forget too many times :)
03:51 <ELGono> well i had to pay one, once
03:53 <CoderForLife> those pesky KVM switches can cause big mistakes
03:53 <Tank_Master> LOL
03:53 <Tank_Master> if your not carful or use a cheep one
03:53 <CoderForLife> we had one once cross-wired between server racks
03:59 <Tank_Master> esh
04:00 <Tank_Master> that can be bad
04:00 <CoderForLife> it was
04:00 <Tank_Master> anything important lost?
04:01 <CoderForLife> a little bit of data, and the productivity of about 800 people for 20 minutes
04:01 <Tidus> ouch
04:01 <Tank_Master> oh, is that all?
04:01 <Tank_Master> not as bad as my foobar in my first job
04:01 <CoderForLife> yeah, after the yelling by the CEO was over
04:02 <Tank_Master> was cleaning cases...
04:02 <Tank_Master> actidently turned off a comp with the resipies for the tool making wafers at Intel
04:02 <CoderForLife> we had to fix a couple of busted stock trades
04:02 <Tank_Master> ruind all the wafers int he chanber
04:03 <ELGono> hehe i once watched two crazy guy cutting a plate with an angle grinder in the serverroom.....
04:03 <ELGono> producing a white cloud of dust.... wich went directly into a cisco 6509
04:04 <Tidus> eek...
04:04 <ELGono> wich resulted in 3 universities in thuringia being offline for a day while cleaning the device
04:05 <ELGono> i'll never forget the face of main-admin ;)
04:06 <ELGono> dark-red screaming
04:06 <Tidus> :P
04:06 <Tidus> the moral of the story... do your metal-work OUTSIDE the server room
04:07 <ELGono> hehe i would say... don't let any stupid craftsman into your server-room
04:07 <Tidus> i mean, i feel at home with either woodworking tools or behind a keyboard. but don't mix the two
04:09 <ELGono> ;)but a computer controlled mill is a nice thing for woodworking too
04:10 <Tidus> yeah

13:38 <Soul_keeper> http://mark.zoomcities.com/images/gfx/GFXpowerchartby3d.png awesome chart
13:38 <Soul_keeper> shows how much power current vid cards drawl
13:38 <PovAdct_w> O_O
13:38 <PovAdct_w> that's INSANE
13:39 <PovAdct_w> 500 wats a gpu? why would anyone use that -_-
13:39 <PovAdct_w> I think GPUs aren't faster than CPUs if you measure credits/watt
13:40 *** [RKN]frost has quit IRC
13:41 <Soul_keeper> those are multi gpu setups with sli/cf
13:42 <Soul_keeper> but yeah i'm at the point where i don't want something pulling over 100 watts, anymore is just insanity
13:42 <PovAdct_w> my card doesn't even support cuda
13:43 <PovAdct_w> and I'm NOT planning on upgrading, considering the recent increase in electricity bill
13:45 <Soul_keeper> haha
13:46 <Soul_keeper> that's what i'm looking at anymore, if i replace a peice of hardware i want it to consume less power than the previous peice
13:46 <Soul_keeper> they are saying intel's larrabee could take 300 watts now
13:50 <Tank_Master> wonder how much 3x295 is
13:51 <DerMeister> Looks like my GPU is too old to be listed in that chart :/
13:52 <Tank_Master> they say mine is 86w
13:52 <Soul_keeper> Tank_Master, 867watts
13:53 <Tank_Master> man o man thats a lot
13:53 <Soul_keeper> http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=603&card2=571 going by this number and multiplying it by 3
13:53 <Tank_Master> thik it would have 10x the performance of my 8800 512?
13:56 <Soul_keeper> 8800 has 112 SP and the 295 has 480 SP
13:56 <Soul_keeper> so 3x 480 = 1440 / 112 = 12.86
13:56 *** Eythan has quit IRC
13:57 <Soul_keeper> so yeah probably roughly 10x in realworld
13:57 <Soul_keeper> assuming that's an 8800GT
13:58 <Soul_keeper> but pulls 10x the power :)
13:58 <Soul_keeper> so performance/watt remains the same
13:59 <Tank_Master> hehe
14:00 <Soul_keeper> i was reading an article
14:00 <Tank_Master> its a 8800 gts 512MB though
14:00 <Soul_keeper> nvidia gpu's have not changed since geforce 8, they are basically the same just more SP, and different clocks
14:01 <Soul_keeper> i think the gts has 96 SP so not much different
14:01 <Soul_keeper> but more mem bandwidth
14:02 <Tank_Master> yeah
14:02 <Soul_keeper> the havn't released any new technology since the 8800 tho
14:02 <Tank_Master> someone the other day was adimate that my card series has overheating issues
14:02 <Soul_keeper> gt300 is supposed to be the next step
14:03 <Soul_keeper> doubtfull
14:03 <Tank_Master> I told him at 45C, yeah right
14:03 <Soul_keeper> nvidia engineers said on a forum post they can operate safely up to like 90+ C
14:03 <Tank_Master> "but be has 30 years of computer experence"
14:03 <Tank_Master> so?
14:03 <Romulus> Rumor has it so is iStat, Tank_Master
14:04 <Tank_Master> about the sam as CPUs then
14:04 <Soul_keeper> yeah
14:05 <Tank_Master> my core atm is at 65C
14:05 <Tank_Master> wichis is well under the 90C
14:05 <Soul_keeper> yeah "operate safely" could just mean they "won't fry"
14:06 <Soul_keeper> might get unstable tho
14:06 <Tank_Master> and the fan is only at 50%
14:06 <Tank_Master> yeah, I increase the fan speed
14:10 <Tank_Master> looks like at 100% I might get down to 55/56C
14:10 <Tank_Master> but its not worth the noise
14:11 <Tank_Master> and I figure if there was a serious issue, it would have been brought up in the gpugrid forums
14:12 <Soul_keeper> sounds about the same as my card
14:12 <Soul_keeper> i run the fan speed at 100% all the time
14:12 <Tank_Master> what do you have?
14:12 <Soul_keeper> 9800GT the same as a 8800GT
14:12 <Tank_Master> ah
14:12 <Tank_Master> i say some 280s for arounf $300
14:13 <Tank_Master> to bad I have to get a new powersupply first
14:13 <Soul_keeper> yeah they just aren't worth it
14:13 <Soul_keeper> my card is running at 60C right now
14:13 <Tank_Master> about the same as mine at 66%
14:14 <Soul_keeper> 40nm will be out this year, possibly by summer
14:14 <Tank_Master> I think the bfg o/c bords have a better heatsink on them
14:14 <Tank_Master> then some other brands
14:14 <Soul_keeper> mine has the 2 slot "dust devil" design
14:14 <Soul_keeper> noise don't bother me
14:17 <Tank_Master> lol at dust devil
14:18 <MTughan> The dual-slot design is better for internal heat management.
14:18 <MTughan> Instead of the heat from the GPU being dumped back into the case for the CPU and PSU to remove, it's exhausted right out.
14:18 <Tank_Master> right
14:18 <Tank_Master> thats how mine is
14:18 <BadBarbarian> my 8600 gt 1gig ddr3 is running about 55c oced to the max
14:18 <MTughan> Also allows a bigger fan, which can be quieter.
14:18 <MTughan> BadBarbarian: Idle or load?
14:19 <BadBarbarian> load
14:19 <Tank_Master> sucks air from in the case and blows it out the back
14:19 <Tank_Master> BB!
14:19 <BadBarbarian> hey
14:19 <MTughan> Nice... My 4870 gets a lot hotter on load.
14:19 <Tank_Master> howdy
14:19 <MTughan> I'm at 53C idle ATM, although it's quiter than the CPU fan.
14:20 <BadBarbarian> i do have a very good case with 2 very very large fans + my big typhoon
14:20 <BadBarbarian> the only outlet fan is the ps
14:21 *** PovAdct_w has quit IRC
14:21 <MTughan> I've got 3x 120mm fans, 1x 200mm fan, and a 92mm CPU fan, along with the GPU and PSU fan.
14:21 <MTughan> 2x 120mm for input, and a 120, 200, and the PSU fan for exhaust. The Antec Nine Hundred, if you're wondering.
14:21 * Hodapp -> GPU 55 C at full load, CPU 30 C at full load
14:22 <MTughan> Hodapp: Water cooling?
14:22 <Hodapp> No.
14:22 <Hodapp> Zalman
14:22 <MTughan> What's your ambient?
14:22 <Hodapp> stock fan an GPU (9800 GT)
14:22 <BadBarbarian> crunching ??
14:22 <Hodapp> I dunno, I'm not gonna stop my CPU/GPU for you to see :P
14:22 <BadBarbarian> wow
14:22 <Hodapp> idle is prolly about 40-45 C on the GPU
14:23 <MTughan> Because my GPU can get around 85+ celsius, and CPU is at 57-66C, depending on which core you look at.
14:23 <MTughan> Although I need more cool air in here... I can probably bring that temp down to around 55C on the hottest core.
14:23 <Hodapp> meh.
14:23 <BadBarbarian> i run 59 to 55c crunching seti
14:23 <MTughan> Oh, and my TIM cleaner came today, so I can reseat the CPU fan. I think I broke it a couple days ago.

16:40 <Romulus> MTughan: 2.998046875
16:40 <MTughan> Oh, duh... 3GB. :)
16:41 <wdsmia> just got it give me a chance to build it up
16:41 <MTughan> Heh.
16:41 <DerMeister> Well, judging from the rac of this machine it does more work in one day than I do in two months...
16:42 <FreeLarry58> DerMeister that machine seems to have a lot of comp errors tho
16:43 <DerMeister> that explains the "low" rac. that user obviously has another machine of this type with an rac above 7,000.
16:44 <FreeLarry58> yeah
16:44 <DerMeister> Currently I need almost half a year for 7,000 credits... :/
16:44 * MTughan is getting about 9000 credits/day.
16:44 <FreeLarry58> humm just had a 14000 credit day on abc yesterday
16:44 <FreeLarry58> thats almost a new record for me
16:45 <FreeLarry58> but many machines
16:45 <MTughan> Seems ABC had a high yesterday then... Struck gold with 12K+ on ABC yesterday. Record for me too.
16:45 <FreeLarry58> yeah my pending dropped to alomost 7100 now back over 8000
16:45 <DerMeister> According to boincstats I've never had more than 966 credits on a single day
16:46 <MTughan> I've move the quad over to WCG for the time being. I'm lagging there, considering it's my team's main project.
16:46 <FreeLarry58> just one machine DerMeister that ain't bad but you might want a second
16:47 <DerMeister> No, not just one.
16:47 <DerMeister> Currently I have only two but about a year ago I had a third one running and my brother's desktop although donated some idle time to boinc.
16:48 <FreeLarry58> http://boincstats.com/stats/boinc_host_stats.php?pr=bo&st=0&userid=67ee388bb16322bf096b018c7850da7a only 9 active currently
16:48 <DerMeister> However, none of these machines is/was running 24/7...
16:48 <FreeLarry58> 8 here in house 1 at brother in laws house
16:49 <FreeLarry58> ahh all mine run 24/7
16:49 <DerMeister> Well, boincstats lists even 11 hosts for me - but some of them are duplicates.
16:49 <MTughan> Only 2/3 of those machines are running. The variable number because one shows up twice, under Vista and Win7.
16:50 <MTughan> Oops, 3/4 machines... Forgot my roommate's laptop.
16:50 <DerMeister> well: these are mine: http://boincstats.com/stats/boinc_host_stats.php?pr=bo&st=0&userid=8cb2cf435985885e7898199d610afab7
16:50 <DerMeister> all those 2.4GHz P4s are a single machine - as well as the Pentium Ms...
16:51 <MTughan> You've never tried merging them?
16:51 <xcamel> I think I have 13 working on it...
16:52 <FreeLarry58> lol undrstand DerMeister - to merge think he would have to attach to 2 or more projects at same time so the cpid sync
16:52 <DerMeister> MTughan: no, because most of them were created by using different clients (synecdoche and boinc). They would re-appear after merging unless I throw away one of the clients
16:52 <FreeLarry58> think i have 9 active
16:53 <MTughan> Heh, funny... My Vista machine is still getting credit even though it hasn't crunched for probably about 3 days now.
16:53 <MTughan> Or maybe longer, I don't remember.
16:53 <DerMeister> FreeLarry58: that wouldn't be a problem - almost all of these clients are attached to about five projects
16:53 <xcamel> someone please explain to me what "sign of douche" is?
16:53 <FreeLarry58> yeah haven't crunched einstein for a while but still have close to 2000 pending
16:54 <FreeLarry58> at same time?
16:54 <xcamel> being sarcastic, of course...
16:54 * FreeLarry58 hot water bottle with dripping attachment?
16:54 <xcamel> well... synecdoche
16:55 <xcamel> you figure it out...
16:55 <FreeLarry58> hummmm
16:55 <DerMeister> FreeLarry58: well, it *should* sync itself as soon the client is attached to almost all my projects. However, as a last resort I could still manually edit the host id

18:41 <PovAddict> then unmarking packages he knew he needed (and its dependencies)
18:41 <PovAddict> way too tedious though
18:45 <Tidus> what i normally do on any debian based distro is just start with the 'server' install, which installs just the base system, no X, no nothing

19:52 <Romulus> Title: YouTube - Amazing Fireball hits Southern Scandinavia 17 Jan 09 !! (at www.youtube.com)
19:57 <MTughan> All right, I'm pretty sure now my PSU is toast. Not literally.
19:59 <MTughan> Anyone know how long you should wait for capacitors to discharge before opening a power supply?
20:00 <wdsmia> new box is running like greased lightning :)
20:01 <efc> in TVs, I believe it can take days or more.
20:01 <xcamel> i7 ?
20:01 <Romulus> I guess i7 is the name fo rhte desktop varent, xcamel
20:01 <FreeLarry58> depends on cap sizes MTughan and if discharge path available
20:01 <FreeLarry58> else use shorting probe and discharge to ground
20:01 <MTughan> Should it be plugged in, but turned off?
20:02 <CoderForLife> well - nuf42nite
20:02 <FreeLarry58> turn comp off not just shutdown
20:02 <MTughan> Also, I figured out what happened. The PCI bracket on the switch touched a heatsink in the PSU, and it shorted to the case.
20:02 <CoderForLife> "24" comes on in about an hour
20:02 <CoderForLife> gn all
20:02 <xcamel> laterz..
20:02 <MTughan> The PSU case, that is, I don't know about the outside case.
20:02 <FreeLarry58> most will discharge within an hour - if in hurry use screwdriver to short to case ground
20:03 <FreeLarry58> con be done from the +VdC side to ground
20:03 <MTughan> I don't think I have an electrically insulated screwdriver...
20:03 <FreeLarry58> but may loose rail if you try from jack
20:03 <FreeLarry58> handle on most screwdrives enough as not dealing with high voltages
20:04 <MTughan> I'm wondering if I should attempt this... Problem is that I don't know what happened fully.
20:04 <FreeLarry58> if open ps case go from +side of cap to ground
20:04 <MTughan> Whether I blew the PSU, or the MB.
20:05 <FreeLarry58> ugg can be hard - can you get reading from ps? if so how does waveform look like
20:05 <FreeLarry58> you may have lost part of filter
20:05 <MTughan> I can't turn it on.
20:05 <FreeLarry58> disconnect from mb and accessories completely then try to turn on
20:05 <MTughan> Whether I don't have enough load outside of the motherboard, or what. I've tried connecting two LED strips, an external panel, and 4 fans, but nothing.
20:06 <FreeLarry58> if it has a shorting connection may have to short it to get ps on
20:06 <FreeLarry58> some ps needed it as hookup on mb header
20:06 <MTughan> I used some directions from the internet for running water cooling without turning on the computer. Said to short the green Power On wire with ground. I tried that.
20:07 <FreeLarry58> still no output? if so the ps blew fuse most likely
20:07 <MTughan> How much load does a PSU need to turn on? Anything?
20:07 <FreeLarry58> fuse located internally on board
20:08 <FreeLarry58> 0 but need path
20:08 <MTughan> What does that mean?
20:08 <FreeLarry58> no load required - green grounding wire supposed to signal good to go
20:08 <MTughan> Yep... I meant about needing a path.
20:09 <FreeLarry58> all volatge regulation is internal to ps (to some degree)
20:10 <MTughan> Also, if a fuse did blow, is that replaceable? I figure the warranty is gone anyways, so I'm not worrying about that.
20:11 <FreeLarry58> screwdriver shorting probe can be easily made - take a length of wire and wrap bare copper around driver shaft - attach aligator clip to other end to allow attachment to ground and use blade of screwdriver to touch + terminal of caps
20:11 <FreeLarry58> most are but some require desoldering
20:11 <MTughan> Yeah, the warranty's gone... Just checked PCP&C's site.
20:12 <FreeLarry58> if you lucky fuse blew before ic components got damaged
20:17 <MTughan> Hmm, that's interesting... Just took the cover off, making sure I didn't touch anything inside.
20:17 <PovAddict> everything is black?
20:17 <PovAddict> :P
20:17 <MTughan> The case is connected to the ground, so I would think the power that was in the heatsink would've just rushed to the ground. Is that the right thinking?
20:18 <MTughan> PovAddict: The fan is. :P
20:19 <MTughan> FreeLarry58?
20:19 <Romulus> hmm... FreeLarry58 is here, MTughan
20:20 <FreeLarry58> heatsink not really for power storage but idea same - ground potential
20:21 <MTughan> I know it's not for storage, but if it were touching any components like that, it would be energized all the same. Correct?
20:21 <FreeLarry58> not really - it could be used as ground point
20:22 <MTughan> But if I basically just connected the heatsink to the ground, I could understand if it turned off, but would it blow anything>
20:22 <MTughan> ? *
20:22 <FreeLarry58> the SCR's would be attached to it for heat transfer but heatsink should have to + or - reading as to be at ground potential
20:22 <jasong> I just found more proof that being a multi-millionaire doesn't mean you're good in your field.
20:23 <jasong> You can't turn off the Wii remote unless the box is already turned on.
20:23 * FreeLarry58 holds pocket open for jasong to have multi-millionares drop thier spare change into it
20:23 <efc> Is it just me or is google getting less effective lately..
20:24 <jasong> So if you turn off the box using the switch, the remote stays on until you turn the Wii BACK on, then you turn off the remote and the box too
20:24 <FreeLarry58> information overload - or just too many people using to many keywords for items
20:25 <PovAddict> efc: blame blogs
20:25 <PovAddict> who quote each other all the time
20:25 <FreeLarry58> ugg that sounds too complicated for me jasong - maybe one reason dont have a Wii here
20:25 <FreeLarry58> jasong myself i would probably just remove remotes batteries if wanted to make sure off
20:26 <jasong> lol, I wasn't stating it as a good method, I was stating it to show how the Nintendo people aren't as smart as we're supposed to think they are
20:26 <efc> yes, and the link farm pages that seem to be getting better at swarming with semi-relevant but un-helpful information
20:27 * FreeLarry58 google kind of reminds me of old search program used in service called Haystack
20:27 <FreeLarry58> but that was limited to internal DB's
20:28 <jasong> Perhaps Google could come up with a button to click if the results are totally non-relevant. They'd give you a simple test to make sure you understand, and then just let you loose
20:28 <MTughan> I'm just thinking that it might be easier, although not necessarily cheaper, to just replace the PSU.
20:28 <wdsmia> press to test release to detonate
20:28 <FreeLarry58> i found it so MTughan
20:29 <jasong> So, a Nazi page, even though offensive to most, might not be non-relevant, so it shouldn't get a non-vote, which is the type of thing they'd be teaching

20:29 <jasong> How do I use it?
20:30 <jasong> Is it those arrows they show?
20:30 <MTughan> The problem is that I don't have enough money to replace it... At least with the same model.
20:30 <FreeLarry58> use a phrase
20:30 <efc> I would think that a couple of Google employees looking for that full time would keep it to a minimum
