04:56 <KathrynM> the good new is tuesday is over

04:56 <KathrynM> the bad new is there's still 3 days this week

04:56 <CoderForLife> excellent - endings are as important as beginnings

04:57 <CoderForLife> 5 days makes one weak

12:08 *** up365 has joined #boinc

12:13 <Tank_Master> mmmm 8 core goodness

12:13 <Tank_Master> I wish I had an 8 way 8 care server

12:13 <Tank_Master> core*

12:14 <Tank_Master> with 8 geforce 295s

12:15 <MTughan> What massive chipset would you need for 128 PCIe lanes?

12:15 <MTughan> 16 * 8 = 128

12:16 <MTughan> Even X58 would only support up to 64 lanes.

12:17 *** DerMeister has joined #boinc

12:20 <MTughan> Although I suppose you could run each card with only an x8 slot.

12:20 <MTughan> Tank_Master: And how much does 8 GTX 295's cost anyway? :P

12:22 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

12:23 <MTughan> lol... $500USD each on Newegg.

12:24 <MTughan> So $4000 for the GPUs, maybe another $3500 for the CPU... $500 for an X58 mobo, customized. $8000USD...

12:24 <MTughan> Damn nice computer though.

12:25 <zombie67> which computer?  The power costs would eclipse the cost of the HW in only a hanfful of months

12:26 <MTughan> lol, true.

12:26 <MTughan> That, and don't you need a display hooked up to each GPU for CUDA?

12:27 <MTughan> If so, that makes 16 displays...

12:33 *** Crust has joined #boinc

12:36 <zombie67> I have no display hooked up to mine.

12:37 <MTughan> And it's crunching CUDA?

12:37 <MTughan> Actually, that makes sense... I think Windows just needs to have a desktop on the card for CUDA to work.

12:39 <MTughan> My bad... X58 only has 40 PCIe lanes.

12:52 <jasong> What was the conversion factor for Euros to dollars about 5 years ago?

12:54 <MTughan> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euro#As_a_reserve_currency

12:54 <jasong> thanks

12:54 <MTughan> Wait, that's not what you want...

12:54 <MTughan> Sorry, looked like a conversion table at first glance.

12:55 <MTughan> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euro#Exchange_rates <- that is a conversion table.

12:55 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/9qgjm> (at en.wikipedia.org)

12:55 <jasong> Yeah, I'm not quite sure how to google the rate that existed 5 years back

12:56 <MTughan> Hmm, seems you can get a CSV table of the data, from which the graph there is plotted...

12:56 <jasong> Looks like it's about the same as it is now

12:57 <jasong> a little more

12:57 * MTughan whistles

12:57 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

12:57 <MTughan> That is a big table...

12:57 <MTughan> Almost 2600 rows.

12:59 <MTughan> Anyway, I'm gonna have lunch... bbl

13:04 <jasong> I tried to join World Community Grid, but they have a 15-character limit on their passwords.  Makes no sense, but I decided to struggle to change things so that I could join their little club.  After about 45 minutes, I said screw it and gave up

13:05 <jasong> 15-character limit, that's just stupid

16:10 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: Got a reply from Willy on the forums. Apparently, the daily being later isn't because of the error from before, but because there's more and more hosts, people, and credits being added to BOINC every day.

16:13 <xcamel> got my acera sata card, now to see if it's gonna work...

16:14 <MTughan> Are you doing RAID?

16:16 <xcamel> jbod for the time being

16:17 <MTughan> Hmm, not great news for zombie... Apparently, VIA's Nano bests Intel's Atom at a number of benchmarks.

16:20 <xcamel> bbiab..

16:20 *** xcamel has quit IRC

16:20 <MTughan> Wow... The Nano is even faster than a Nehalem for some floating-point.

16:25 <MTughan> "when it comes to graphics, netbook users have to accept performance compromises. ... In popular application areas such as image handling netbooks suffer from weak performance. Indeed, at times, the netbook chips performed so sluggishly that our testers felt as though they had slipped back to the IT Stone Age."

16:28 *** ergZay has joined #boinc

16:29 <ergZay> boincmanager even when i have the scientific stuff on standby uses around .5 to 1% of my cpu all the time

16:29 <ergZay> is there any way to reduce this besides quitting the manager entirely?

16:29 <MTughan> Nope.

16:30 <ergZay> whats it doing with that cpu time?

16:30 <ergZay> there is no gui to update

16:30 <ergZay> and besides checking conditions to see if it can start again

16:30 <MTughan> There's a fork of BOINC working to clean up the code and hopefully reduce CPU usage, but for BOINC itself right now, there's nothing to be done.

16:30 <ergZay> is the fork usable yet?

16:30 <MTughan> Well, BOINC is made up of really two parts: a core client, and a graphical manager.

16:31 <ergZay> yea i know

16:31 <MTughan> AFAIK, the core client is fairly good with CPU usage. But the graphical manager is probably the one that's taking lots of CPU, right?

16:31 <MTughan> "lots"

16:31 <ergZay> yea the core client sits at .1 to .2 percentage

16:31 <ergZay> while idle

16:32 <MTughan> I don't think the fork is stable yet, even somewhat stable. It's still classified as an alpha project.

16:33 <ergZay> since i last rebooted 2 days ago with on and off periods of time in there, boincmanager has 14 minutes of used cpu time and boinc itself has about 6 minutes of used cpu time

16:33 <MTughan> Windows?

16:33 <Romulus> Somebody said Windows is not nearly as SHA1 computational friendly as Linux, MTughan

16:33 <ergZay> os x

16:34 <MTughan> Oh, the manager's not even compiling on OS X yet... I'm in charge of that area.

16:34 <ergZay> ah k

16:34 <ergZay> if you compile it with x-windows does the x-windows version of the manager compile?

16:34 <MTughan> There's a strange bug where one method is called, but when debugging, we end up in another function.

16:35 <MTughan> I haven't tried using X with it, and my Mac's currently being replaced by Apple because of hardware failure, so I can't try it out anytime soon.

16:35 <ergZay> ah fun

16:35 <ergZay> what failed out of curiosity and what mac?

16:36 <Tank-Master> the mac phailed

16:36 <ergZay> i have the previous gen macbook pro 17 inch varient

16:36 <ergZay> bought it beginning of summer of 08

16:36 <MTughan> I had a 1st gen white MacBook. Had the motherboard fail three times in 2 years.

16:37 <ergZay> dang

16:37 <MTughan> Bought September '06.

16:37 <ergZay> thats intel for you i guess

16:37 <Tank-Master> no, its abble

16:37 <ergZay> may be part of why they switched to the nvida chipset

16:37 <MTughan> I dunno, my C2Q machine is doing quite well. :D

16:37 <ergZay> nvidia*

16:37 <Tank-Master> intel makes the most stable mobos on earth

16:37 <MTughan> Ah yes, the sh*t GMA950 graphics...

16:37 <ergZay> oh the other thing

16:38 <ergZay> with nvidia releasing those tools to allow computation on the gpu

16:38 <ergZay> boinc would be wonderful to use for that

16:38 <MTughan> It does, but there aren't any libraries for Mac to use that yet. Once there are, it will come to OS X.

16:38 <ergZay> has anyone suggested this or is there any work on it?

16:38 <MTughan> http://www.gpugrid.org/

16:38 <Romulus> Title: GPUGRID (at www.gpugrid.org)

16:38 <ergZay> ah

16:38 <ergZay> k

16:39 <ergZay> well i mean more having it in boinc

16:39 <ergZay> and not in a separate project

16:39 <ergZay> for general project use

16:39 <MTughan> BOINC reports the GPU, but projects need special applications to actually use it.

16:40 <MTughan> The only project I know of right now that has both CPU and GPU apps is SETI@home, but other projects are either working on it or looking into it.

16:40 <ergZay> is that how its staying? or can it even change fromt hat?

16:40 <MTughan> That special applications are needed?

16:40 <ergZay> can something like a backend for the gpu use to be made such that its treated like and seen by apps as around 30 slow cpus?

16:41 <ergZay> my knowledge is low in this

16:41 <MTughan> Probably, but that's quite inefficient.

16:41 <ergZay> so im just throwing a guess

16:41 <MTughan> I'm a little iffy on the hardware side, but you also have to think in terms of RAM. Ideally, you load the RAM in the graphics card immediately, then do the computation.

16:42 <MTughan> Not like with a CPU, where you can load some data into RAM, then read some more from a file once that's done with. The bandwidth between the CPU and GPU and the overhead involved is too great.

16:42 <MTughan> From what I understand anyway. Maybe it'll be easier once OpenCL becomes popular, starting with Snow Leopard.

16:43 <ergZay> yea im looking forward to that

16:43 <ergZay> im somewhat curious to how much faster everything in general will get

16:43 <ergZay> especially compared to say windows 7

16:43 * MTughan is running Win7 right now

16:44 <MTughan> Faster than Vista, all I can say right now. :P

16:44 <ergZay> well thats not hard

16:44 <MTughan> lol

16:44 <ergZay> windows xp is faster than vista

16:44 <MTughan> Yep.

16:44 <MTughan> Tiger and Leopard are as well, but at the expense of higher RAM usage.

16:45 <ergZay> yea they do tend to use a lot of ram

16:45 <ergZay> 2GB isnt enough to run safari and other apps concurently with world of warcraft

16:45 <Tank-Master> qin7 is faster than xp on the newer hardware

16:45 <ergZay> which is why i recently got another 2GB for $75

16:45 <Tank-Master> but it can run on older hardware than vista

16:45 <ergZay> everything runs great now

16:46 <MTughan> I never could play games on my Mac, but VMs took up all the RAM easily. The chipset in my MacBook only supported 2GB of RAM though.

16:46 <Tank-Master> thats spendy

16:46 <Tank-Master> I just paid $52 for 4gb

16:46 <MTughan> Yeah, I got 4GB of DDR2-1066 RAM for $100.

16:46 <ergZay> actually it would ahve been $35 for the 4GB

16:46 <Tank-Master> mine is ddr2 800

16:46 <ergZay> (had to toss my two existing 1GB)

16:46 <ergZay> but i forgot to send in the mail in rebate...

16:47 <ergZay> so there you go

16:47 <Tank-Master> lol

16:47 <Tank-Master> I had no mail-in

16:47 <ergZay> yea i could have gotten it for around 50

16:47 <ergZay> as you did

16:47 <MTughan> This machine here has 8GB now, never looked back. Great to be able to run a virtual machine with almost 4GB of RAM and still have plenty of room left over. :P

16:47 <ergZay> but mine would have cost 35

16:47 <ergZay> for 4gb

16:48 <ergZay> 667 mhz DDR2

16:48 <ergZay> im debating about buying vmware fusion

16:48 <ergZay> im about to run out on my trial

16:48 <ergZay> using it with ubuntu and like it a lot

16:48 <MTughan> Try VirtualBox. I think they have a Mac version IIRC.

16:49 <ergZay> vmware fusion integrates sooo nicely in so many ways

16:49 <ergZay> better than i ever expected

16:49 <MTughan> Intel Macs, yep.

16:49 <ergZay> well i mean

16:49 <ergZay> the connection and device forwarding

16:52 <ergZay> its run by sun microsystems?

16:52 <ergZay> is java used for it at all?

16:52 <MTughan> I wounldn't be surprised if it was started by Sun, but there's a version available under GPL.

16:53 <Tank-Master> yes, java is still used somewhat

16:53 <ergZay> for?

16:53 <ergZay> i tend to like to avoid java

16:53 <ergZay> it eats things

16:54 <Tank-Master> same here

16:54 <Tank-Master> and it requiers to meny updates

16:54 <MTughan> Java's all right, but uses too much RAM overall for my tastes.

16:54 <MTughan> And I couldn't say if it's used anymore.

16:55 <Tank-Master> but some remote access programs and VMs offer it as an option

16:55 <CoderForLife> greetings BOINC fans

16:55 <Tank-Master> I havent installed it in years

16:55 <MTughan> Java isn't listed in the requirements for Linux though.

16:57 <CoderForLife> wha?  say it ain't so

16:57 <Tank-Master> :)

16:57 <MTughan> ergZay: Java isn't listed as a build requirement for VirtualBox, so I would guess it was used, but not anymore.

17:13 <zombie67> yep

17:14 <jasong> Hey, question: This metaphorical physics wall we're supposed to hit when the transistors reach a certain size, what year is that predicted to happen if nothing is done about it?

17:14 <MTughan> I think it was around the 25nm mark IIRC.

17:14 <Tank-Master> sometime after 2015

17:14 <MTughan> Intel's going 32nm this year.

17:14 <Tank-Master> no, intel has plans for a 14nm

17:14 <jasong> Is that with Moore's Law not being broken?(2015)

17:14 <Tank-Master> or 13, somwhere around there

17:15 <MTughan> Tank-Master: He said "if nothing is done about it"

17:15 <Tank-Master> dunno

17:16 <Tank-Master> but they do expect fiber optic interconnects and several thousand core CPUs

17:16 <MTughan> "Because exotic technologies not based on silicon are expected to become prominent during this node, and at the same time conventional silicon technology is still being pushed to the scaling limits, [16 nm] can be seen as a transition from CMOS to nanoelectronics."

17:16 <Tank-Master> with gigs of cache layered uncer the corese instead of next to them

17:16 <MTughan> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16_nanometer

17:17 <Romulus> Title: 16 nanometer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)

17:17 <jasong> during this node(?) wtf is a node?

17:18 <MTughan> I think that just means a process step, like 65nm, 45nm, 32nm, and so on.

17:18 <jasong> ah, ok

17:19 <jasong> It seemed as if Borg terminology might have entered the language when I first read it

17:20 <zombie67> I just realized DA got the version mixed up.  We are on 6.6.5, next will be 6.6.6

17:20 <MTughan> The devil's BOINC! :P

18:39 <xcamel> which is better... core 2 quad, or core 2 extreme @ 4ghz?

18:39 <Tank-Master> theres a different?

18:39 <MTughan> For value? Core 2 Quad. Performance? Probably the C2E.

18:39 <Tank-Master> probably whichever has the higher fsb

18:39 <MTughan> Depends what C2Q.

18:39 <Tank-Master> yeah

18:40 <Tank-Master> it depends man

18:40 <xcamel> Q9550 vs QX9770

18:40 <MTughan> But a C2E will never beat a C2Q for value, not at the prices Intel charges.

18:40 <xcamel> just for raw boinc output..

18:41 <MTughan> The C2E comes OC'd to 4GHz?

18:41 <xcamel> or maybe a xenon quad...

18:41 <jasong> Depends on how you define value, are we assuming it'll be used for DCing stuff?

18:41 <Tank-Master> you hca get the qx6700 EE for $350

18:41 <Tank-Master> canU

18:41 <xcamel> maybe an i7

18:42 <MTughan> C2E compared to Ci7? I'd probably go to the i7.

18:56 <MTughan> Ah... Ouch.

18:56 <xcamel> seagate replaced it no questions...

18:57 <xcamel> which was nice..

18:57 <MTughan> Yeah.

18:57 <xcamel> I need to merge  7 & 11 - that's the problem...

18:57 <MTughan> Oops... I better go to dinner before it's too later. bbl

18:57 <MTughan> late*

18:57 <jasong> Yeah, that's annoying.  When your main system loses data, you feel validated for backing stuff up, but when the BACKUP system busts a drive, that's just annoying.

18:58 <xcamel> ya think?

18:58 <jasong> It's the same difference, but humanity was not made for logical thought

18:59 <jasong> That's why women are higher lifeforms, we're made to survive, not consider things rationally

18:59 <jasong> errr, they're made to...

19:00 <jasong> I've always felt like women exist so the race will survive, men exist so the existence won't be Godawful boring

19:04 *** zombie_67 has quit IRC

19:07 <xcamel> If women ran the planet, we would have been nuked long ago...

19:08 <jasong> If women ran the planet, irc wouldn't exist and commerce would be a shadow of what it is now

19:09 <jasong> My mother thinks that me and my friend aren't being good friends if we don't look at each other and flap our gums every second

19:10 <jasong> Apparenlty, they think male bonding rituals are just something that we make up to piss them off or confuse them

19:10 * jasong apologizes to Kathy if she happens to see this

19:11 <jasong> For the love of God, don't use her handle for a few screens

19:13 <Tank-Master> :)

19:14 <jasong> It's like I tell people, women are best problem you'll ever stress out over.

20:45 * jasong is thrilled by the fact that,"I don't do Windows." has a double-meaning in his case.(maybe a little too thrilled)

20:47 <jasong> I need something meaningful in my life, somewhere between Runescape and a full-time job on the meaningfullness scale

20:48 <jasong> is there any type of troll that fits between those two datapoints?

20:49 <jasong> I've considered posting Youtube comments, but that's like halfway between Runescape and absolutely worthless

20:50 <jasong> Also, while I thoroughly enjoy Linux, I can't convince people that I'm better than them, my logic is beyond them

20:53 <jasong> If I knew R.D. Silverman would still be on Mersenne Forum in 5 years, I could start improving my math knowledge now so that I could totally destroy him in January 2014, but there's no way of predicting what will happen

20:56 <jasong> I've come to the conclusion that my best bet is to study and emulate the lives of Obama and Al Gore, but I haven't been able to find anyone willing to perform a lobotomy so I can think like them
