04:51 <CoderForLife> morning Larry
04:51 <Soul_keeper> CoderForLife
04:51 <CoderForLife> hey Soul_keeper
04:51 <CoderForLife> plink 188.8.131.52
04:52 <Soul_keeper> CoderForLife, what database do you use for c/c++ ?
04:52 <FreeLarry58> morning CoderForLife
04:54 <CoderForLife> I mostly use MySQL
04:54 <Soul_keeper> isn't that php exclusive ?
04:54 <Soul_keeper> what about sqlite ? you use that ?
04:54 <CoderForLife> but I am also working directly with SQLite with C atm
04:54 <CoderForLife> MySQL is not PHP exclusive at all
04:55 <Soul_keeper> what documentation did you use for learning sqlite ?
04:55 <CoderForLife> the web site
04:55 <Soul_keeper> you were able to find enough there ? seems hidden to me
04:56 <CoderForLife> I think I have a book on it somewhere
04:57 <Soul_keeper> the oracle berkeleydb documentation is a joke
04:57 <Soul_keeper> i spent a few hours trying to make it create a database, trying desperately for any of their example code to actually work, and failed
04:58 <Soul_keeper> sqlite don't look too bad tho i guess
04:58 <CoderForLife> I love MySQL - I am using SQLite as the basis for a boinc project, as I need to distribute the database with the WUs
04:58 <CoderForLife> My real system uses MySQL - I'll be puilling data out of it to populate tables in SQLite
04:59 <CoderForLife> I will verify results back against the MySQL-based system
04:59 <Soul_keeper> nice
05:00 <CoderForLife> brb breakfast
05:02 <Soul_keeper> i don't understand why none of these people can list example code that actually compiles
05:02 <Romulus> Title: SQLite In 5 Minutes Or Less (at www.sqlite.org)
05:05 <Soul_keeper> shouldn't the very first thing they talk about in documentation be what includes to use to actually make any of their stuff work ?
05:06 <Soul_keeper> undefined reference to `sqlite3_open'
05:07 <CoderForLife> b
05:08 <Soul_keeper> and of course google has nothing on such things
05:09 <MTughan> That's a linker error. Make sure you have all the necessary libraries being linked.
05:09 <CoderForLife> correcy
05:09 <CoderForLife> er correct =)
05:10 <Soul_keeper> yes i need to know which libraries i'm supposed to be linking to
05:10 <Soul_keeper> gcc -Wall -g -lm -L/usr/include/sqlite3.h -L/usr/include/sqlite3ext.h sq2.c -o sq2
05:10 <CoderForLife> don't put the .h files there
05:10 <Soul_keeper> any others ?
05:10 <MTughan> -L marks a path to find libraries in...
05:10 <Soul_keeper> yeah ok guess i wasn't thinking ...
05:11 <CoderForLife> I have all the sqlite source code in my project (Visual Studio) - no library to link to
05:13 <CoderForLife> I use "#include "sqlite3.h"
05:13 <CoderForLife> and then call things like " sqlite3erc = sqlite3_open(resolved_name,&db);" with ease
05:14 <Soul_keeper> yeah that's not doing it for me
05:14 <Soul_keeper> and i have no sqlite3.so's on my system
05:14 <MTughan> Where are the SQLite binaries? Or did you get source code?
05:14 <CoderForLife> again, I use the source code directly
05:14 <Soul_keeper> they apparently don't get compiled with a fresh sqlite install
05:14 <Soul_keeper> even with --enable-shared
05:17 <Soul_keeper> very odd that they say "the is the recommended source"
05:17 <Soul_keeper> typo and all
05:20 <Soul_keeper> ok the typo "not recommended" one works
05:20 <Soul_keeper> "Their use is not recommented. The SQLite developers do not use them. You should not use them either." yet they work and the others don't ...

05:32 <Soul_keeper> it's clear that i'm not wanted around here
05:33 <CoderForLife> hmm
05:33 <MTughan> I don't know much about SQLite, so I can't really comment on it.
05:33 <CoderForLife> that's not clear to me at all
05:33 <MTughan> BTW, I passed you. :P
05:35 <Soul_keeper> http://www.sqlite.org/quickstart.html i'm trying to run that example C program, but i don't understand what they mean by "SQL-STATEMENT" and somehow i'm supposed to be able to populate the db with these ...
05:35 <Romulus> Title: SQLite In 5 Minutes Or Less (at www.sqlite.org)
05:36 <Soul_keeper> doesn't seem like a 5min affair at all, more like 5hrs
05:37 <Soul_keeper> so what do you guys do when you feel like you're a failure, have always been a failure, and will never amount to anything ?
05:37 <CoderForLife> lemme look
05:38 <Soul_keeper> i probably shouldn't be trying to learn anything in my state of mind
05:39 <CoderForLife> SQL-STATEMENT is whatever SQL statement you want to issue against the database, like "SELECT * from tablename"
05:39 <CoderForLife> do you know SQL?
05:39 <Soul_keeper> so it's no a key/value pair then ?
05:39 <CoderForLife> nope
05:39 <CoderForLife> SQL
05:39 <Soul_keeper> i know nothing of this
05:40 <Soul_keeper> i guess this won't work for me at all then
05:40 <CoderForLife> it's an SQL database
05:40 <Soul_keeper> basically i need to store a few thousand keys with a strings assigned to them (value)
05:40 <CoderForLife> SELECT name from users where name like "Soul%";
05:41 <Soul_keeper> so each user has their own access, then they need a table, then inside the table we got values but no keys ?
05:42 <Soul_keeper> hmmm
05:42 <CoderForLife> typically each row of a SQL table has a key
05:42 <CoderForLife> sounds like your table would have a key and a single value
05:43 <Soul_keeper> ok i think this helps me enough to where the docs might actually almost make sense
05:43 * CoderForLife just tuned 10MB of text out of his output file
05:43 <Soul_keeper> i'll have to spend a few hours with them
05:44 *** jrodger has quit IRC
05:44 <CoderForLife> Coding is a great way to spend time
05:44 <Soul_keeper> i can't believe berkeley db is so difficult for me to learn
05:44 <Soul_keeper> according to the people in #c it's easy, and i'm a noob
05:45 <CoderForLife> I have found that rarely has knowledge sprung off the screen at me - I have to dig and wallow around for awhile
05:45 <MTughan> It may just be common database theory that you're unfamiliar with, and making the API seem harder than it it?
05:46 <Soul_keeper> it's a matter of not being able to find a single peice of code on the internet that compiles with create/write/read/close capabilities
05:48 <Soul_keeper> file:///home/soul/build/db-4.7.25/docs/gsg/C/DB.html this code don't compile, they conveniently leave things out that make it work
05:48 <Soul_keeper> errr
05:49 <MTughan> Yeah, I can't read file:// files... :P
05:51 <MTughan> This doesn't cover the C interface of SQLite from what I can tell, but covers SQLite's SQL syntax. http://souptonuts.sourceforge.net/readme_sqlite_tutorial.html
05:51 <Romulus> Title: SQLite Tutorial (at souptonuts.sourceforge.net)
05:51 <Soul_keeper> would be nice just to get to the point where i could make it create a db file ...
05:52 <Soul_keeper> yeah i'll probably have to go with sqlite, the documentation seems much better
05:52 <Soul_keeper> but supposedly i'm a worthless noob unless i learn berkeleydb
05:53 <MTughan> I thought Berkeley DB was sort of a subset of many other DBs?
05:53 <Soul_keeper> i don't think so
05:53 <Soul_keeper> appears oracle owns it or something
05:54 <Soul_keeper> and oracle don't want people knowing things without giving them money ...
05:54 <CoderForLife> I have never done anything with Berkeley DB, except when it was embedded under the hood, like with LDAP
05:54 <CoderForLife> I am not a worthless n00b
05:55 <Soul_keeper> i was under the impression that berkeleydb was some kinda industry standard ...
05:55 <CoderForLife> it's history
05:55 <Soul_keeper> well i see that firefox uses sqlite
05:56 <CoderForLife> the biggest "standard" right now is MySQL
05:56 <CoderForLife> if you want to buy your database, then Oracle is the most widely used
05:57 <CoderForLife> SQL Server is probably next after that
05:57 <CoderForLife> I'm late getting ready for w@#%
05:57 <Soul_keeper> ok
05:57 <CoderForLife> bbiab
06:00 <Soul_keeper> that's a good tutorial MTughan
06:00 <Soul_keeper> thanks
06:04 <Soul_keeper> MTughan, you're generating a lot of credit for only having two active systems with boinc
06:13 <MTughan> Sorry, had to take the garbage out...
06:13 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: You're welcome, and I know. :)
06:14 <MTughan> And that's only CPU, I haven't been able to get the GPU running yet.
06:16 <Soul_keeper> what gpu you got again ?
06:16 <MTughan> HD4870.
06:16 <MTughan> With the credit limit at MW removed, some are claiming about a credit/second.
06:17 <Soul_keeper> nice
06:17 <MTughan> 86400 seconds in a day... Let me see if I can find that.
06:26 <Soul_keeper> yeah i wish my 3870 would do something, i'm gonna hafta put it in the scrap heap soon
06:26 <MTughan> 3870 should be supported.
06:26 <MTughan> IIRC, it's the 38xx and 48xx cards that are supported.
06:27 <Soul_keeper> yeah but linux support will likely drag
06:27 <MTughan> Ah, Linux support... Yeah, just Windows support right now.
06:27 <MTughan> At least 32-bit was added recently, you needed Windows x64 before.
06:28 <Soul_keeper> i'm thinking about replacing this 3870 with a 9800GTX+ or something
06:29 <MTughan> Oh, so stinking close to 1 mil...
06:29 <MTughan> 998,709
06:29 <Soul_keeper> 1,969,326
06:29 <Soul_keeper> close to 2 mil here :)
06:30 <MTughan> You've also been crunching for longer. ;)
06:30 <Soul_keeper> i might have to skip an upgrade cycle or two
06:30 <Soul_keeper> can't afford stuff
06:31 <Soul_keeper> best to spend my time coding
06:31 <MTughan> And probably with more computing power. Up until about October, I had a Pentium 4 @ 3.15GHz and a 32-bit Core Duo Mac.
06:31 <MTughan> I then added the 2.53GHz 64-bit CPU. Note the "64-bit" ;)
06:32 <Soul_keeper> i want more memory, even tho it won't help with RAC
06:33 <MTughan> How much do you have now?
06:33 <Soul_keeper> my 64-bit system only has 512MB
06:33 <Soul_keeper> this system has 2GB which is mostly enough
06:34 <MTughan> 64-bit system is running Linux, I presume?
06:34 <Soul_keeper> yeah
06:34 <MTughan> Graphical or command-line?
06:34 <Soul_keeper> the memory is always maxed out
06:34 <Soul_keeper> well, it would be at the command line, but boinc forces me to run X for it to detect cuda
06:35 <MTughan> Ah, that doesn't help... What desktop?
06:35 <Soul_keeper> xfce, the minimal
06:36 <MTughan> Sounds good. But yeah, more memory is always good, especially if it's maxed out all the time...
06:36 <MTughan> Relieves stress on the hard drive too. ;)
06:36 <hawmps> 'lo
06:36 <MTughan> 'lo Jay
06:37 *** sigmund_ is now known as sigmund
06:37 <Soul_keeper> i was thinking i'll upgrade this system to 4GB and put the 2GB in it. that would only run me 50 bucks and i'd have 1GB per core on both systems
06:38 <MTughan> And your quad gets a nice boost too.
06:38 <Soul_keeper> yeah
06:38 <MTughan> $50 ain't bad. Not as bad as a new system in any case.
06:38 <Soul_keeper> i got an extra 512MB of ddr2 laying around 256x2 but they aren't worth using (slow early stuff)
06:39 <Soul_keeper> would just slow down my main rig, and not enough mem slots for it in my other rig (only 2)
06:40 <Soul_keeper> i'm surprised that 512Mb lasted so well for a dual core system
06:40 <Soul_keeper> wouldn't have made it 1 day in windows :)
06:40 <MTughan> 512MB was enough for XP.
06:41 <Soul_keeper> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820146731 i was looking at this

06:43 <MTughan> Ah, nice kit. I have the XP-8500 kit, basically the next level up.
06:43 <Soul_keeper> so can you order anything off their site ?
06:43 <MTughan> If I felt like it, and they had it on their Canada site.
06:43 <Soul_keeper> so the products are different then ?
06:44 <MTughan> Only thing I've ever ordered online was some ArctiClean and some CCFLs from NCIX.
06:44 <Soul_keeper> different inventory that is
06:44 <MTughan> Possible. I haven't checked any items.
06:44 <CoderForLife> OK - ready for w@#% - off I go

06:47 <hawmps> no..

06:47 <MTughan> Only way I know that it would get down to 2 is if you were returning errors.

18:16 *** PovAddict has joined #boinc
18:23 <CoderForLife> hey Jay
18:24 <PovAddict> <- using Windoze
18:24 <CoderForLife> you'll spend your whole life w@#%ing PovAddict
18:24 <PovAddict> :|
18:24 <CoderForLife> live for the moment - take tomorrow off
18:25 <CoderForLife> besides - it's Friday
18:25 <PovAddict> exactly...
18:25 <PovAddict> even one of the company owners told me that... :P
18:25 <PovAddict> not going for three weeks, what's the point of going on a Friday just to get on weekend immediately after?
18:25 <CoderForLife> so, by popular consensus, it's Friday
18:26 <PovAddict> it's like an interruption
18:26 <CoderForLife> spoil a perfect week
18:26 <PovAddict> yup
18:26 <xcamel> almost..
18:26 <PovAddict> I'm trying to create an iPhone App Store account without a credit card
18:26 <CoderForLife> I'm finally really Coding on my original boinc project
18:26 <xcamel> good luck with that..
18:26 <PovAddict> (I don't plan to get any non-free apps, yet it looks like account creation has a mandatory "specify your payment method and card number" step)
18:27 <CoderForLife> my project I started before I began showing up here
18:27 <PovAddict> sounds like my kind of project!
18:28 * PovAddict looks at his C:\projects folder
18:28 <CoderForLife> I'll share some details soon
18:28 * PovAddict ...on both computers
18:30 <xcamel> nothing like a knock-down drag out with time warner
18:30 <CoderForLife> I hate that
18:31 <KathrynM> tgif
18:31 <CoderForLife> hello KathrynM =)
18:31 <xcamel> tgiaf.
18:32 <KathrynM> new power supply for my modem. the magic smoke came out of the old one
18:32 <CoderForLife> I see you've had connectivity problems too KM
18:32 <CoderForLife> got to keep the smoke in
18:32 <KathrynM> yeah.
18:32 <KathrynM> the little details
18:32 <CoderForLife> who'd a thunk it?
18:33 <KathrynM> gah people. pastebin the logs
18:33 <PovAddict> lol?
18:33 <KathrynM> (talking about the alpha list)
18:35 * KathrynM wants to shoot the people alpha testing who refuse to report stuff to the list
18:38 *** Turf has joined #boinc
18:38 <xcamel> lol:
18:42 *** siofwolves has quit IRC
18:50 *** PovAddict has quit IRC
18:54 <CoderForLife> A nice gesture, but this is already going to cost me enough, without screwing up my credit score
18:55 <xcamel> best laid plans....
18:55 <jasong> Hey, cfl, what's the project you just mentioned?
18:56 <CoderForLife> hmm? the one I'm just now Coding?
18:56 <jasong> I know you said details later, but I'm assuming you know what you're going to study
18:56 <CoderForLife> yeah - I know exactly
18:56 <jasong> What are you going to study?
18:56 *** PovAddict has joined #boinc
18:56 <CoderForLife> "details later"
18:57 <jasong> lol
18:57 <PovAddict> you should release it on April 1
18:57 <PovAddict> then nobody will believe it
18:57 <PovAddict> I want to do that...
18:57 <CoderForLife> at the rate I'm going I should be able to that
18:58 <CoderForLife> providing I get some help from someone
18:58 <PovAddict> you mean it will be done by April 1?
18:58 * CoderForLife looks around the room
18:58 <CoderForLife> ready to run
18:58 <PovAddict> not sure *I* can help... I have my own stuff I want to release for real on April 1 and I think I wouldn't make it :P
18:59 <CoderForLife> looks like I will have about 330,000 cases to run in the first go-round - those may get packaged up into WUs of multiple cases, depending on run time
19:00 <CoderForLife> 330,335 to be exact
19:00 <jasong> I came up with my own project, but I don't have any coding ability
19:00 <jasong> The Bible Code Project
19:01 <jasong> You guys remember the whole Bible Code phenomenon?
19:01 <CoderForLife> yep
19:02 <jasong> I have a hypothesis that they were on the right track, and that when the final book is opened, as predicted in Revelation, it will exist in more than 3 dimensions
19:02 <PovAddict> how can that be tested by computers?
19:02 <jasong> So my project is to simulate basic shapes in up to 20 dimensions and super-impose the Law Books on them
19:03 <jasong> Then search for words, looking for actual language
19:03 <CoderForLife> that is beyond my Coding ability
19:03 * PovAddict forgot his IPv6 tunnel account password
19:03 * PovAddict hates passwords
19:03 <CoderForLife> Security...
19:03 <xcamel> lol
19:03 <jasong> I figure it would be a fairly small program to run, but would be a bitch to learn the skills to actually code
19:04 <PovAddict> someone said it's always a tradeoff between security and convenience
19:04 <jasong> I'd have to understand the math, too
19:04 <PovAddict> a retina check every time you do an HTTP request would be quite secure, but...
19:04 <CoderForLife> a rare intersection betwixt the 2, PovAddict
19:05 * xcamel is still amazed a machine can boot fully from a ".dat" file
19:05 <PovAddict> hey, it can boot from a chunk of magnetized metal!
19:05 <xcamel> smart as...
19:05 <PovAddict> as smart as who?
19:11 <xcamel> like the farmers say.. "Strong like Bull, Smart like Fencepost."
19:16 <Romulus> Title: Index of /dl (at boinc.berkeley.edu)
19:16 <xcamel> seems to be a workfetch fix..
19:16 <xcamel> wonders never cease..
19:17 <PovAddict> 6.4 was super-rushed
19:17 <PovAddict> they're still trying to get the scheduling to work
19:17 <xcamel> ya think?
19:17 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc
19:17 <PovAddict> all to make it match the date of an nVidia press release
19:23 *** PovAddict has quit IRC
19:23 *** PovAddict has joined #boinc
19:23 <CoderForLife> wb
19:24 <xcamel> what's the chances 6.6.10 will be 'good' ?
19:24 <PovAddict> got IPv6 back working
19:24 <CoderForLife> about the chances that $75B will be good
19:24 <PovAddict> xcamel: as good as all the previous ones?
19:24 <PovAddict> you tell me... I haven't run anything later than 6.2.x
19:25 <xcamel> cfl - it's $275 billion.
19:26 <xcamel> and the latest 'Elmer Fudd" comment was very telling...
19:26 <PovAddict> ?
19:26 <PovAddict> last I heard, Steve Ballmer was Elmer FUD
19:27 <xcamel> we have a better one in congress
19:27 <xcamel> 'bawwny fwwank'
19:29 <PovAddict> I got an envelope with all the stuff to vote in Spain
19:30 <PovAddict> I have double nationality, argentina and spain
19:30 <xcamel> Spain went socialist - there is no point to voting
19:31 <PovAddict> spain sends stuff to vote by mail to all citizens living abroad
19:31 <CoderForLife> we do that here in Chicago
19:32 <CoderForLife> but we include the dead as well
19:32 <PovAddict> I don't know *anything* about Spain politics...
19:33 <xcamel> and the undead
19:33 <xcamel> they get to vote twice.
19:33 <CoderForLife> figures xcamel - it was $50B last night, $75B today - it has to be up to $275B by now
19:33 <PovAddict> I'm supposed to vote but I know nothing about the candidates
19:35 <xcamel> Fwank said it was "to save the states property tax systems"
19:35 <CoderForLife> ok - the eyes are glazing over - it's too dangerous to continue Coding now
19:36 <CoderForLife> Bawwny is an.. well that would be repeating myself
19:36 <PovAddict> just take note of the current revision number* and go on... tomorrow you'll know what to revert if it turns out you *did* write ugly code while sleepy :)
19:36 <PovAddict> (* because you ARE using version control, aren't you?)
19:37 <CoderForLife> svn
19:37 <CoderForLife> plugin to VS 2008
19:37 <PovAddict> good
19:37 <CoderForLife> I knew you'd approve
19:38 * CoderForLife quickly commits changes
19:38 <PovAddict> even cvs (shudder) would be better than nothing at all
19:39 <CoderForLife> ok - time to kick back with a grape soda
19:39 <CoderForLife> gn
19:39 <PovAddict> Linus Torvalds disagrees, he says manually-tracked numbered archives are way better than cvs
19:39 <PovAddict> :p
19:39 <CoderForLife> what does he know about Coding?
19:40 <PovAddict> a lot
19:40 <PovAddict> but he argues as much as he Codes
19:40 <xcamel> he argues more than he codes.
19:41 <PovAddict> not sure if I'd say that considering he wrote git in 3 days... but it could be
19:41 <PovAddict> what's sure is he argues without real *arguments*
19:41 <PovAddict> just "I'm right, and if you disagree you're a fool"
19:41 <CoderForLife> needs to take a break like Eric Raymond
19:43 <CoderForLife> "I was a historian before I was an activist, and one of the things I've paid attention to are patterns of success and failure in reform movements. One of the things I've observed is movements that remain dependent on the talents and charisma of key individuals don't survive those individuals. In fact, if your charismatic founder doesn't step offstage, healthy reform movements often end up having to ritually execute, banish or disgr
19:43 <Romulus> Title: Interview with Eric S. Raymond (at www.linuxjournal.com)
19:45 <CoderForLife> with that, I'll wander away into the dark night
19:45 <CoderForLife> gn all
19:46 <xcamel> a successful movement is one that doesn't require a second trip to the toilet.
20:06 <xcamel> looks like no linux build...
