02:29 <efc> moo ELGono

02:30 <ELGono> lo ed

02:31 <ELGono> exam on visual communication today :/

02:31 <ELGono> real boring stuff

02:32 <efc> At least you're learning

02:37 <ELGono> well yea

02:37 <ELGono> just learning the principles, not definitions

02:38 <ELGono> except some, they really count on

02:39 <ELGono> the correlation between quantity of news postings and audit period is real phun :)

02:40 <ELGono> more than doubled compared to usual

02:53 <efc> &math convert 1 megajoule to kilowatthours

02:53 <Romulus> efc: 0.277777777778

02:53 <ELGono> looks interesting

03:03 <efc> The math does not look good to me, even though I like the idea

03:21 <ELGono> like a drop of water on a hot stone

03:21 <efc> basically the energy payback for orbit appears to stink

03:25 <ELGono> well there is another thing... you always must be aware of russian (or iranian) sattelites ;)

03:25 <efc> We'll attach a space-rated AR-15 for those pesky Foreigner satellites

03:25 <efc> "Taste Freedom B!tches!" blam blam blam

03:26 *** sigmund_ is now known as sigmund

03:27 <ELGono> well that iridium story has many questions .... it was not on the orbit it should have been

03:27 <ELGono> and furthermore the russian don't miss any sattelite

03:28 <efc> Yeah something was fishy there

03:29 <efc> but like they say don't blame on conspiracy what can be attributed to incompetance

03:30 <jasong> Question:  is there a command that can be used during a Linux install to make it double-check that the file is correct?  I think I have a dirty dvd reader and I don't know where the cd cleaning disc is

03:31 <jasong> I know we have one around, but my mother doesn't know where it is and will bitch if I go rooting through her stuff

04:10 <efc> cfl has blocked almost all IPv4 addresses

06:51 <Soul_keeper> what's all this action !?!?!

07:13 <Soul_keeper> sqlite still seems like bullshit to me

07:13 <wdsmia> asks Soul_keeper to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

07:26 <Soul_keeper> not "lite" enough

07:42 *** jrodger has quit IRC

08:10 <Soul_keeper> amazing how fast regular file read/write is ...

09:03 * CoderForLife finds SQLite a little too lite - needs a bit more hand-holding than normal databases

09:12 <Soul_keeper> well i'm happy for you then

09:13 <Soul_keeper> shouldn't need 5+ arguments to commit something or retrieve something imo

09:13 <Soul_keeper> i'm struggling with more important things atm

09:14 <Soul_keeper> i just wish code from books on C actually compiled and worked

09:14 <Soul_keeper> it's apparently policy to never include working code in an example

09:16 <Soul_keeper>    the example on page 60  will take me several hours to figure out

09:16 <Romulus> <> (at

09:20 <Soul_keeper> i suspect normal people figure this stuff out in 1min

09:26 *** clusty has joined #boinc

09:27 <Soul_keeper> it appears i'll never figure it out

09:28 <Soul_keeper> kind of hard to read a book, if every appearance of code means i'm stopped forever

09:39 <Soul_keeper> so, stuck with the reality that no example code will ever compile  .....

09:40 <Soul_keeper>        more broken code

11:09 <CoderForLife> I used WordStar to edit files on my Hazeltine ASCII terminal

11:09 <CoderForLife> I still have all that gear

11:09 <PovAdct_w> what a crap day

11:10 <CoderForLife> write some Code - that'll make everything better

11:10 * PovAdct_w puts his boss on ebay starting at $1

11:11 <CoderForLife> so you ignored my advice and went into w@#%

11:11 <PovAdct_w> dad insisted I should come

11:11 <CoderForLife> *sigh*

11:11 <PovAdct_w> coworkers said "heh, what a day to come back"

11:11 <CoderForLife> adults

11:11 <PovAdct_w> for a start:

11:11 <PovAdct_w> I was worried about the heat

11:12 <PovAdct_w> and instead, we get rain, and I didn't bring an umbrella

11:12 <CoderForLife> naturally

11:12 <PovAdct_w> hmm I see some pun in that :P

11:13 <CoderForLife> mm-hmm

11:13 <PovAdct_w>

11:13 <CoderForLife> you got it

11:13 <CoderForLife> The English language is my toy

11:14 <CoderForLife> After the C language, that is

11:14 <CoderForLife> lunch in 16 minutes  =)

12:35 <MTughan> Gah... Attaching to ABC, got a checksum error on the application download, trashed the whole WU.

12:35 <MTughan> Of course, BOINC doesn't try downloading the application a second time.

12:37 <MTughan> WTH? I have no tasks, a timeout just expired on the only project attached, and nothing's happening...

12:38 <MTughan> Oh, because it won't do work while I'm using it...

12:39 <zombie67> Run always

12:39 <MTughan> I know. Still doesn't help with a checksum error... Happened again.

12:39 <MTughan> BTW, this machine is the new Mac. Came today.

12:45 <MTughan> Wait a minute... It's also downloading the wrong application, I think.

12:46 <MTughan> Oh, ABC doesn't have a 64-bit Mac app... Nvm.

12:48 <MTughan> MW works.

13:05 * Soul_keeper had way too much coffee

13:07 <Soul_keeper> i can get higher on legal drugs than illegal, or maybe it's just been too long to remember ...

16:35 <xcamel> Hi Larry

16:35 <FreeLarry58> well new machine online now - scratching me h'e about it not running einstien tho

16:39 <FreeLarry58> was laughing a bit earlier today - wife was going to try a different cpa today and was looking for back taxes - complained she couldn't find the one for 2008

16:39 <FreeLarry58> the one she needs to get done that is

16:40 <xcamel> lol

16:41 <xcamel> taxes

16:42 <FreeLarry58> superlink beginning to remind me of seti site - when they go offline for a litle while it takes forever to allow reporting of wu's afterwards

16:42 <xcamel> yuk

16:42 * FreeLarry58 is chewing on bar of soap for using the T word

16:45 <xcamel> you better..

16:45 <FreeLarry58> lol

16:46 <FreeLarry58> how's this for <24 hrs ( and not all wu's granted credit)

16:50 <Nickuwo> why would dynamically allocating an array throw a bad allocation error?

16:51 <Nickuwo> int * A1 = new int[2*m];

16:51 <Nickuwo> int * A2 = new int[2*m];

16:51 <Nickuwo> int * S2 = new int[4*m];

16:51 <Nickuwo> throws only for A2 and S2...

16:51 <PovAddict> how big is m?

16:51 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

16:51 <Nickuwo> 21

16:51 <PovAddict> std::bad_alloc thrown?

16:51 <CoderForLife> ugh

16:52 <Nickuwo> ya

16:52 <PovAddict> that happens when you run out of memory, usually... but shouldn't happen for 84 integers!

16:53 <Nickuwo> yea, i thought it was odd too

16:53 <Nickuwo> i gots 3G of ram left..

16:53 <Nickuwo> apparently

16:53 <PovAddict> you sure m is really 21?

16:54 <Nickuwo> debugger says it is

16:55 <xcamel> Larry... "kickass"

16:55 <Nickuwo> hmm... I haven't been freeing anything...

16:57 <PovAddict> lol

16:57 * CoderForLife pullls the handle on the stock market

16:57 <CoderForLife> whoooosh

16:57 <Nickuwo> say I ran this thing 50ish time without freeing anything....

16:57 <Nickuwo> perhaps a restart is in order?

16:57 <xcamel> 'lo Don

16:58 <PovAddict> no, you should start freeing stuff

16:58 <CoderForLife> hello Jay =)

16:58 <PovAddict> restarting periodically is a *bad* way to work around a memory leak

16:58 <xcamel> "How's all that hope and change working out???"

16:58 <PovAddict> but I'm sure big companies do it

16:58 <Nickuwo> only things initialized with "new" right?

16:58 <CoderForLife> the change is working it's way out of my pcoket

16:59 <CoderForLife> er pocket

16:59 <PovAddict> yes

16:59 <PovAddict> that's why new is error-prone :)

16:59 <PovAddict> easy to forget to delete later

16:59 <CoderForLife> I need Pandora to come by and slam the lid to keep hope in there

17:00 <CoderForLife> It's bad when Bubba needs to coach Barry on being positive

17:00 <FreeLarry58> too late CoderForLife - wasn't that your wife running off with a side panel of Pandora's Box?

17:00 <Nickuwo> ic. So is the allocated mem from the last 50 times just sitting out there unusable?

17:01 <CoderForLife> the missus is not involved with this travesty

17:01 <FreeLarry58> lol

17:01 <PovAddict> yes Nickuwo

17:01 <Nickuwo> alright. brb then

17:01 * PovAddict sighs

17:02 <CoderForLife> hello PovAddict

17:02 <FreeLarry58> rest easy PovAddict it's tgif day

17:02 * FreeLarry58 for him anyway

17:02 *** Nickuwo has quit IRC

17:03 <CoderForLife> Pov is all wired up from w@#%ing on a day he should have taken off

17:03 <CoderForLife> how's the boss auction on eBay going?  any bids?

17:05 <FreeLarry58> sorry if he like mine - you'll have to pay me

17:05 * CoderForLife listens to

17:05 <Soul_keeper> MMMMM C

17:05 <CoderForLife> C is for Cookie

17:06 <KathrynM> C is for Cookie, that's good enough for me.

17:07 <CoderForLife> heh

17:07 <PovAddict> mmmmmm cookies

17:07 <PovAddict> damn you all

17:07 <CoderForLife> C is for Coding, and that's the Life for me

17:07 * PovAddict is off to get cookies

17:07 <KathrynM> :)

17:07 *** Nickuwo has joined #boinc

17:07 <Soul_keeper> this is gonna be so much faster than perl (i'm dealing with jiffies)

17:08 <CoderForLife> jiffies?  the unit of time?

17:08 <Soul_keeper> yeah

17:08 <CoderForLife> cool

17:09 <Soul_keeper> perl was losing about 15min every hour just doing simple math every 30 seconds

17:10 <Soul_keeper> and if cpu usage was high, it would stall out even with -20 priority and take like 2-3min instead of 1

17:10 <Soul_keeper> i suspect all the loaded perl modules are massive

17:10 <CoderForLife> were you using the Timer::HiRes package with Perl?

17:10 <Soul_keeper> yes

17:10 <CoderForLife> OK

17:11 <Soul_keeper> i didn't see a better option, but even if there is it won't change what i'm doing now

17:11 <CoderForLife> OK

17:12 <Soul_keeper> i'll still use perl for image generation and the cgi part tho

17:12 <Soul_keeper> it just makes a horrible dedicated daemon

17:13 <CoderForLife> I only run perl scripts under cron - the most frequently I ever have was every 5 minutes

17:13 <CoderForLife> no daemon stuff

17:13 <PovAddict> I don't speak Perl

17:13 <Soul_keeper> :)

17:13 <CoderForLife> you just did

17:14 <Soul_keeper> it's only a step or two above python/java ...

17:14 <CoderForLife> I'd say below - closer to the machine

17:14 <Nickuwo> hmm, i hate you std:bad_alloc

17:14 <CoderForLife> it's more techcical/cryptic

17:14 <PovAddict> sorry but I'm busy enough that I would actually have to charge to help you Nickuwo...

17:15 <CoderForLife> er technical

17:15 <Soul_keeper> well not above as in higher-level :) just prefered

17:15 <CoderForLife> ah sure =)

17:15 <Nickuwo> fair enough

17:16 <CoderForLife> I've written more in C than anything else

17:16 <CoderForLife> 2nd is PHP

17:17 <CoderForLife> 3rd is probably a toss up between Perl and FORTRAN (back in the day)

17:17 <Soul_keeper> untill just yesterday i hadn't really touched C for 2yrs

17:17 <PovAddict> not sure about how *much* I have written

17:17 <CoderForLife> I started doing C in 1982 or thereabouts

17:17 <PovAddict> C++, PHP, Javascript

17:17 <PovAddict> not sure what order I'd rank them, wrt how much experience I have

17:19 <CoderForLife> lately each day I have open PHPedit, Eclipse (Java) and Visual Studio (C)

17:19 <PovAddict> I have gvim and Konsole the most :)

17:20 * CoderForLife notes right now he's editing his net worth in MS Money

17:20 <PovAddict> I've yet to get my card

17:22 <CoderForLife> what card?

17:22 <Romulus> I guess what card is on there, CoderForLife

17:22 <PovAddict> debit card

17:22 <CoderForLife> ah

17:22 <wdsmia> re-hi

17:22 <PovAddict> apparently it's in the post office from when they tried to send it (but I wasn't home)

17:22 <CoderForLife> Stephen does nearly everything with a debit card

17:22 <xcamel> 'lo Doug

17:22 <CoderForLife> heya Doug

17:22 <Soul_keeper> btw cuda seti cuts the WU times from 1hr to 20min

18:14 <xcamel> that good, eh?

18:14 <CoderForLife> yup

18:14 <CoderForLife> didn't see it at 4 this morning

18:15 <CoderForLife> used the wrong variable name

18:15 <wdsmia> that will do it

18:15 <CoderForLife> now the C and PHP results match

18:16 <CoderForLife> C=boinc code. PHP=baseline model

18:16 <PovAddict> I remember tracking a $username vs $user_name bug for an hour or two...

18:16 <CoderForLife> sure

18:16 <CoderForLife> or case sensitivity

18:16 <CoderForLife> maddening

18:20 <CoderForLife> I was assigning the value of a PHP variable name from the wrong C variable name - a namespace matching problem

18:21 <CoderForLife> perl is only used in batch mode to marshall data from outside sources into the database

18:23 <CoderForLife> the database is only about 15MB, with a 7MB index

18:30 * xcamel hates databases

18:30 <wdsmia> amen

18:41 <Rookie_69> I wouldn't have said it better myself.

18:41 <CoderForLife> when I interview someone for a programming job, I want to know what they've done with music

18:41 * PovAddict plays the keyboard

18:42 <CoderForLife> thinking symbolically, melody and harmony, left and right hand subroutines

18:42 * wdsmia wondered why Dons code had so many referances to tree's

18:42 * Rookie_69 can barely play the radio.

18:44 * PovAddict can't read sheet music though. at least not fast enough to play while reading

18:44 <PovAddict> slooooowly decode it... maybe

18:45 <CoderForLife> the skills to play music and be a great Coder are very much linked

18:58 <xcamel> bbiab - making coffee

18:58 <Rookie_69> I shoveled thirty of forty shovelfuls of crap out of the driveway this morning, felt my aching back, looked at all the remaining snow, decided I could probably make it, and made a run for it. I made it this time. :-)

19:02 <Rookie_69> If I went out and bought new snow tires, I probably wouldn't have to shovel at all.

19:03 <xcamel> everything I plowed yesterday turned to concrete today

19:04 <Rookie_69> Boilerplate ice.

19:06 <Rookie_69> One of the guys in my building traded his truck in on a Hyundai car, so he has to shovel if he wants to get out of the driveway.
