03:44 <efc> moo

03:44 <CoderForLife> moo

03:45 <CoderForLife> hmm - #boinc has been very quiet

03:45 * efc chirp

03:46 <CoderForLife> I see nothing except ins and outs since I got up from the couch last night

03:47 <efc> I bet companies would sell to me if I wanted to buy 10,000 units instead of .. 1

03:49 <CoderForLife> they make it up in volume

03:50 <efc> trying to buy stuff like this (but not this one)

03:59 <CoderForLife> robot parts just aren't what they used to be

03:59 *** Tidus_ has joined #boinc

04:00 <efc> really nice quality stuff from that company but they won't write me back, and they have no distributers for pipsqueaks like me

04:01 <CoderForLife> quite a disturbance in the Force

04:01 *** mchelen has quit IRC

04:02 *** ChanServ sets mode: -o CoderForLife

04:02 <efc> we didn't really need california anyway

04:03 <CoderForLife> the country feels lighter

04:03 <efc> as if a tremendous dead weight had been removed

04:03 * CoderForLife looks at his mutual fund modeling system

04:04 <CoderForLife> this is not looking good

04:04 <efc> the model is simple. final_value := 0.0

04:05 <efc> I like how the merryl lynch exec gave out 4 billion in bonuses right before BoA ate them

04:05 <CoderForLife> more like final_value = -1,000,000,000,000

04:06 <efc> if only you used Unsigned Ints this would have never happened

04:07 <CoderForLife> the Total Value fund has none, the Real Return fund is getting none

04:07 <CoderForLife> Unsigned Ints = Guaranteed Return of Principle

04:08 <CoderForLife> syntax error in financial markets

04:08 <efc> amazingly in some investments i think you can end up owing more than you put in

04:08 <CoderForLife> yep

04:08 <efc> there was a guy near home who was running a ponzi

04:09 <efc> it went bust, he shot himself

04:09 <efc> and the people who had been paid interest before were sued for it

04:09 <CoderForLife> the only thing he had left to put in was a bullet

04:09 <efc> even though they lost all their principle too

04:11 <efc> i think there are a lot more of those

04:11 <efc> little old lady down the street is probably in one

04:11 <CoderForLife> the ripples continue to roll

04:12 * efc considers making his own motors

04:12 * CoderForLife plots world domination

04:13 <efc> i wish i could do something

04:13 <CoderForLife> what are you doing right now?

04:14 <efc> reading crap on the internet

04:14 <CoderForLife> yeah, that's nothing

04:17 <CoderForLife> In search of breakfast - brb  --  this is about the time you dop off -- tc

04:22 <CoderForLife> b

04:22 <efc> that was quick

04:22 <CoderForLife> my search methods are efficient

04:22 <CoderForLife> Boyer-Moore

04:23 <CoderForLife> a dash of Horspool

04:23 <CoderForLife> a pinch of Knuth

04:23 <efc> over my head, but sounds impressive, here's some money

04:24 <CoderForLife>

04:24 <Romulus> <> (at

04:25 <efc> Oh yeah, I think I skimmed those chapters..

04:25 <CoderForLife> don't step in the Horspool

04:26 <efc> I thought the "final solution" was DFAs for substring matching

04:27 <CoderForLife> "death from above"?

04:28 <efc> state machines

04:28 <efc> i think that's how grep works

04:28 <CoderForLife> of course

04:28 <efc> more or less O(n) for everything

04:30 <CoderForLife> better O(n) than O(ff)

04:39 <FreeLarry58> yeah found the ca-2 form online so now can start filling it out for tendenitus

04:39 <CoderForLife> have you submitted your request form to get a Gitmo detainee assigned to your local federal prison?  they're going quickly

04:40 <FreeLarry58> didn't hear about that one

04:41 <FreeLarry58> wonder if one of those detainees wants to donate arm for transplant - cant hurt me much more than i feel currently

04:41 <CoderForLife> John Murtha was signing up to send a bunch to his minimum security facility in his self-assessed redneck district

04:41 <FreeLarry58> ahh is that the same one that is surrounded by a mine field? and crocodiles

04:42 <CoderForLife> yeah - rednecks

04:42 <FreeLarry58> let anything go - just dont mess with the still

04:55 <CoderForLife> time for me to get ready for w@#%

04:55 <CoderForLife> bbiab

04:55 <Tidus> load average: 4.56, 4.69, 3.88

04:55 <Tidus> more action than this machine's seen in a while

04:56 <FreeLarry58> off to start filling out forms and need to make appt with doc in am

05:07 *** efc has quit IRC

05:32 <CoderForLife> back for a moment

05:36 <Tidus> welcome back for the moment

05:36 <Tidus> lol

05:36 <CoderForLife> heh

05:37 <Tidus> <3 downloading a file, only to find you forgot to name it and it has a completely random filename ....

05:37 <Tidus> not really.

05:37 <CoderForLife> <3 not

05:38 <Tidus> glad my comp has a built-in memory card reader...

05:38 <Tidus> using my phone as a card reader gets a bit ... sluggish

05:40 <Tidus> CoderForLife: you know you was gettin on to me for leaving a processor idle?

05:40 <CoderForLife> such a waste

05:40 <Tidus> Linux Katrina 2.6.26-1-686 #1 SMP Mon Dec 15 18:15:07 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

05:40 <Tidus> 04:31:45 up 5 days,  8:26,  5 users,  load average: 1.08, 1.04, 1.01

05:40 <CoderForLife> much better

05:40 <Tidus> had to make sure it was gonna stay stable before i did anything with it

05:41 <CoderForLife> Linux=stable

05:41 <Tidus> old processor under linux = 12 hours uptime... max

05:41 <Tidus> new processor = not so fried

05:41 <Tidus> and an upgrade

05:41 <Tidus> celeron 2.53 to celeron-D 3.2

05:42 <CoderForLife> ah, a hardware problem, not a software problem =)

05:42 <Tidus> yeah

05:43 <Tidus> and even at full tilt the fan noise from it's bearable

05:43 <Tidus> goes from ~600rpm to about 1500

05:46 <Tidus> its only unbearable if the fan goes full tilt... 92mm fan running ~4000 rpm sounds a bit like a hairdryer

05:49 <CoderForLife> what?!?  I can't hear you...

05:49 <Tidus> basically

05:51 <CoderForLife> OK - enough looking at taxes - off to w@#% to create some more

05:51 <CoderForLife> laterz

09:13 <PovAdct_w> I'll just try not to post anything else, and then go on holiday without notice... who knows, he might think I quit

09:14 *** PovAddict has quit IRC

09:14 <PovAdct_w> :|

09:14 <PovAdct_w> aaaaaaargh

09:14 <PovAdct_w> power outage

09:14 <PovAdct_w> uptime 1 minute

09:25 <hawmps> 'lo PoV

09:26 <hawmps> 6.6.2 seems to be running OK

09:26 <hawmps> lost the 'drag select' on the projects page though

09:26 <PovAdct_w> people on seti forums seem to disagree :P

09:27 <PovAdct_w> hmm

09:27 <hawmps> linux version

09:27 <PovAdct_w> upgrading from...?

09:27 <hawmps> 6.4.4

09:27 <PovAdct_w> I think there were huge manager changes 6.4 -> 6.6

09:28 <hawmps> doesn't look much different

09:28 <PovAdct_w> mostly internal changes, so even selection working differently seems surprising

09:29 <PovAdct_w> (actually, nothing surprises me anymore...)

09:29 <PovAdct_w> "expect everything and the unexpected will never happen"

09:29 <hawmps> shift click works, but right click/drag does not.

09:30 <PovAdct_w> I still have 6.2.19 on this machine at w$%&

09:30 <hawmps> really not a big deal is workfetch is working again - unknown at this point

09:32 <hawmps> er if workfetch

09:51 <hawmps> the new linux exec grew bt 7mb

09:52 <hawmps> er by even

09:53 <PovAdct_w> debugging symbols... they didn't make separate debug/normal packages

14:38 <hawmps> Monty Python Puts Free Videos Online, Sells 23,000% More DVDs

14:43 <Tank_Master> so much for the whole illegal sharing is bad for the industry crap

14:44 <hawmps> we have been telling them that for years... it's like real tax cuts, and how they work every time...

14:44 <PovAddict> is that 230x?

14:56 <hawmps> ask the dead parrot

14:56 <PovAddict> the , vs . always gets me confused

14:57 <PovAddict> ten million with fifty cents, in Spanish it's 10.000.000,50 and in English it's 10,000,000.50

14:57 <Soul_keeper> that would be like they used to sale 1 dvd, now they sale 24

14:58 <hawmps> btw - the OSX version of 6.6.2 version is really ripping through wu's now...

14:59 <Soul_keeper> or they used to sale 100 now they sale 2400  ....   or 1000 now 24000

14:59 <hawmps> the 'instances' thing doesn't make much sense, but 'whatever'

16:04 <PovAddict> Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.  Requesting 0 seconds of work, reporting 2 completed tasks

16:04 <PovAddict> Scheduler request succeeded: got 20 new tasks

16:05 <Soul_keeper> lol

16:05 <PovAddict> how'd that happen?

16:06 <Soul_keeper> buggy version probably

16:08 * Hodapp wonders why he's not gotten any tasks from GPUGRID recently

16:10 <Soul_keeper> Hodapp, linux ?

16:11 <Soul_keeper> boinc won't request any if X isn't started cause it'll say "no cuda devices detected"

16:11 <Soul_keeper> if you're using windows then that's the problem

16:11 <Soul_keeper> windows is just flawed :)

16:13 <Soul_keeper> you're both welcome

16:13 <Hodapp> I'm on Linux and X is running

16:14 <PovAddict> awesome... I unpacked some code into a RAM disk

16:14 <PovAddict> so it compiled faster

16:15 <PovAddict> then forgot it was a ramdisk... did some edits to some files...

16:15 <PovAddict> a few hours ago my home machine had a short power outage while I was at work

16:18 <Soul_keeper> Hodapp, when you start the boinc_gui  does it say  "cuda device detected" in the messages tab ?

16:18 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

16:21 *** [RKN]frost has quit IRC

16:22 <Hodapp> Soul_keeper: Yes.

16:23 <Soul_keeper> what version of boinc ?

16:23 <Hodapp> Soul_keeper: Like I said, GPUGRID has already run a variety of jobs with Cuda.

16:23 <Soul_keeper> Hodapp, i dunno what to tell you then, it works fine for me, just got a WU like 2hrs ago

16:24 <Soul_keeper> you can't be helped

16:24 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

16:24 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

16:24 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

16:24 <Hodapp> let my try updating the project

16:25 <xcamel> 'lo

16:25 <Hodapp> wtf, it says "requesting 0 seconds of work"

16:25 <PovAddict> what version of boinc ?

16:26 <Hodapp> 6.4.5

16:26 <PovAddict> maybe you crunched "too much" GPUGRID and it "accumulated debt" with other projects

16:27 <PovAddict> which would show the scheduler sucks... it should ignore that if you have idle hardware (your GPU)

16:27 <Hodapp> it's doing the same with seti@home, requesting 0 seconds

16:27 <PovAddict> is your computer idle now? or do you have any tasks?

16:27 <Soul_keeper> suspend the other projects, then update

16:27 <Hodapp> my computer was idle for at least 10 hours today, and I tried telling it just now to run always

16:28 <Hodapp> still requesting 0 seconds of work when I do that

16:28 *** [RKN]frost has joined #boinc

16:28 <PovAddict> how did you install it? repo packages, binaries from boinc site, self-compiled?

16:29 <Soul_keeper> are you out of disk space or something ?  maybe you got a fishy setting

16:29 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

16:29 <PovAddict> if he was out of disk it would still ask for work (the server would then refuse to give any)

16:29 <Hodapp> there is ample disk space

16:29 <Hodapp> and I have not touched any settings since it was happily crunching on both seti@home and gpugrid

16:30 <Hodapp> installed from binaries from boinc site

16:30 <PovAddict> do you have a cc_config.xml file in boinc directory?

16:30 <Hodapp> no.

16:31 <PovAddict> create one, with:

16:31 <PovAddict> <cc_config>

16:31 <PovAddict>   <log_flags>

16:31 <PovAddict>     <work_fetch_debug>1</work_fetch_debug>

16:31 <PovAddict>   </log_flags>

16:31 <PovAddict> </cc_config>

16:31 <Tank_Master> anyonw know were to get sheep UPS battery replacements?

16:31 <Soul_keeper> i'm using boinc 6.5.0 on my cuda machine

16:31 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: I've never heard of batteries made from sheep

16:31 <Tank_Master> SK - is it better than 6.4.5?

16:31 <Tank_Master> cheep*

16:31 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: they all suck the same

16:31 <Soul_keeper> i think so

16:31 <PovAddict> :P

16:32 <Soul_keeper> they changed a few things with the scheduler i believe

16:32 <Tank_Master> ok

16:32 <Hodapp> PovAddict: restart BOINC?

16:32 <PovAddict> Hodapp: nope, Advanced -> Read config file

16:32 <Tank_Master> I also saw theres a 6.6.0 already o.0!?!

16:32 <Hodapp> then what?

16:32 <Romulus> It has been said that then what is oldschool, Hodapp

16:32 <Soul_keeper> last i checked the linux version for 6.6.0 wasn't out yet

16:32 <PovAddict> then update some project and watch the messages

16:33 <PovAddict> it should say why it doesn't ask for work (in cryptic language :P)

16:34 <Hodapp>

16:34 <Romulus> Title: general pastebin - Unnamed - post number 1316347 (at

16:34 <PovAddict> do you have any tasks in progress, or is the CPU idle?

16:34 <Hodapp> the CPU is idle.

16:35 <PovAddict> o_o

16:36 <PovAddict> BOINC seems to think you have 5 days of work to be done

16:37 <PovAddict> "total up the estimated time for this project's unstarted and partially completed results" = 470858 seconds

16:38 <Soul_keeper> try 6.5.0

16:39 <PovAddict> actually I think that number isn't used anywhere useful... hmm

16:39 <Hodapp> where is 6.5.0?

16:40 <PovAddict> did it print any [work_fetch_debug] compute_work_requests(): start?

16:40 <Soul_keeper>

16:40 <Romulus> Title: Index of /dl (at

16:40 <Soul_keeper> ohh wow they've been busy

16:40 <Soul_keeper> 6.6.2  is there now

16:41 <PovAddict> 6.6.* changed the scheduler completely, don't expect it to even work :P

16:41 <Hodapp> the only [work_fetch_debug] that I saw is there in the pastebin

16:41 <xcamel> 6.6.2 started up and didn't do a cpu bmark

16:41 <PovAddict> Hodapp: did it print any other since you pastebin'd? :)

16:56 <Tank_Master> lol

16:56 <PovAddict> I think it's not getting any work because it says you already have a SETI task (called ap_19dc08ab_B0_P0_00228_20090121_29136.wu_0) that will take 7 days of processing

16:56 <Hodapp> hmm

16:57 <PovAddict> so you're already filled up

16:57 * PovAddict closes his five text editors

16:57 <Hodapp> isn't it supposed to share resources or something?

16:57 <PovAddict> well, you don't have any idle CPU (apparently)

16:57 <PovAddict> single core?

16:57 <Hodapp> yeah

16:58 <Hodapp> but it seemed to be sharing things previously and running GPUGRID and seti@home tasks simultaneously

16:58 <PovAddict> now it thinks it has too much work and it would be a bad idea to get more (may not meet deadlines)

16:58 <PovAddict> because it's ignoring the fact that you DO have idle hardware: the GPU

16:59 <Hodapp> hmm

17:03 <Hodapp> so I guess I should just let it run and wait?

17:03 <PovAddict> yep... at least your CPU is not idle

17:03 <PovAddict> so you aren't worse than before BOINC supported GPUs at all :)

17:03 <Hodapp> yeah.

17:51 <PovAddict> hmm probably it's not just symbol tables

17:51 <PovAddict> but also compiled with debugging code and without optimization...

17:51 <xcamel> go figure

17:51 <PovAddict> (or maybe just debugging code... I don't think they turn optimization off for debug builds)

17:52 <PovAddict> can't tell you what to do about the lag though

17:52 <xcamel> it's boincmanager that's slowed way down

18:23 <PovAddict> I need to send ctrl-alt-del over a vnc session and my client doesn't have a special button for it

18:23 <CoderForLife> iirc, there is a simple test, PovAddict

18:24 <CoderForLife> is there a menu choice?

18:24 <PovAddict> this vnc client has no menus and no toolbar (I should be glad it has scroll bars)

18:25 <CoderForLife> um, it sux =)

18:28 <xcamel> shuts x on that end

18:28 <xcamel> er it should

18:28 <PovAddict> no, that would shut X on *my* end...

18:28 <CoderForLife> you want to send CAD to the other side, right?

18:29 <xcamel> otherwise from a console window there - type init 2

18:29 <PovAddict> I'm on Linux connecting to Windows, need to send it a ctrl-alt-del for logon

18:29 <xcamel> oops - init 3

18:29 <PovAddict> but I fear it would reboot my local Linux machine instead

20:23 <PovAddict> but Python doesn't seem to like mingw... there is a set of patches to make it work but it's for an old python version, the project seems abandoned

20:25 <PovAddict> a configure/make system, which doesn't work right on Windows, or a visual studio project file

20:26 <PovAddict> guess what other open source project has that problem...

20:28 <PovAddict> argh

20:28 <PovAddict> alt-f4 closes the vnc client, instead of sending it to the remote machine so some window there closes

20:28 <CoderForLife> heh

20:28 <CoderForLife> frustrating

20:34 *** Mufleta has joined #boinc

20:35 <CoderForLife> I don't suppose you can reassign keys, like in a cfg file somewhere

20:38 <PovAddict> opening project properties *still* makes visual studio crash, even now that I installed its SP1

20:38 <CoderForLife> that's weird - what version of VS?

20:39 <PovAddict> 2005

20:41 <CoderForLife> I have VS 2008 Professional
