04:16 <CoderForLife> I guess I shouldn't hand around with the likes of lindbohm
04:16 <CoderForLife> er hang
04:16 <efc> cavorting around on kubrick.freenode.net
04:17 <CoderForLife> I don't even know who lindbohm is
04:17 <CoderForLife> "one of the founders of Swedish science fiction"
04:18 <CoderForLife> well I had guessed "somebody having something to do with science fiction, probably an author"
04:18 <CoderForLife> clever of me, huh?
04:19 <efc> Just a lucky guess.
04:20 <CoderForLife> "One of the founders of modern swedish science fiction, Dénis Lindbohm not only writes some very amusing sci-fi short stories, but also a multitude of books dealing with his many former incarnations. Right now he's a retired man in his seventies, but some lifes past, he was a great pre-human sorceror on a faraway planet."
04:21 <CoderForLife> sounds like he was a real fun guy
04:21 <CoderForLife> "... in the seventies, when he was at his busiest exploring dream-realities with self-hypnosis and meeting Satan in other dimensions."
04:22 <efc> gimme some of what he's smoking
04:22 <CoderForLife> uh-huh
04:22 <CoderForLife> I'll have *none* of that stuff
04:24 <efc> You're looking pretty silly from this dimension, right Satan?
04:24 <CoderForLife> no wonder I've never read any of his stuff

04:53 * CoderForLife fixes a rounding function
04:54 <CoderForLife> there - that function will never threaten us again
04:57 <Soul_keeper> :)
04:58 <Soul_keeper> cleaned up all my naming stuff, fixed all the array sizing to be proper too :)
04:58 <Soul_keeper> doing the final tests on my complete port now
04:58 <CoderForLife> nice
04:58 * CoderForLife continues translating PHP into C
04:59 <Soul_keeper> well the cgi stuff will have to wait, i might switch that all around
04:59 <Soul_keeper> i really like C
04:59 <CoderForLife> it gets the job done
05:00 <CoderForLife> I've been doing C since 1981
05:00 <Soul_keeper> i'm thinking this port uses 2/3rds less memory and has upwards of 20x less cpu overhead than it did in perl
05:00 <CoderForLife> compiled Code is faster
05:01 <Soul_keeper> ohh yeah, i just didn't expect the interpreted code to be so poor
05:01 <Soul_keeper> i mean it's still fast, compared to me with a calculator ...
05:02 <CoderForLife> I can still work a slide rule, if you need it to be any slower
05:02 <Soul_keeper> ok say for example i have 3 log files, each writes a line 1440 times a day ....
05:03 <Soul_keeper> i'm thinking i might just do some kinda log rotate functionality, where it compresses to a tar.bz2 after each 10 days
05:04 <Soul_keeper> don't really need a database if i do that
05:05 <ELGono> textfile do fine for that SK
05:05 <Soul_keeper> i'm figuring maybe 200MB total storage space over 1yr
05:06 <ELGono> in germany we say: TFSNA text files stürzen nicht ab ... textfiles do not crash the system
05:06 <Soul_keeper> :)
05:06 <ELGono> we just set up a system for heidis final thesis ...
05:07 <ELGono> sh'e writing just in text files
05:07 <Soul_keeper> nice
05:07 <ELGono> wich are included and formattet in latex later on
05:08 <Soul_keeper> fork() is usually frowned on right ?
05:09 <ELGono> remember the big split few days ago?
05:09 <Soul_keeper> yeah
05:09 <ELGono> where a transatlantic route went fubar
05:09 <ELGono> it was a czech cisco admin
05:09 * CoderForLife remembers
05:09 <ELGono> experiencing a bug in ios
05:11 <ELGono> he mixed up "set as-path prepend" with "bgp-prepend"
05:11 <CoderForLife> Ooo BGP has a big impact
05:12 <ELGono> jepp all others ciscos in network in europe and us went fubar et once
05:12 <CoderForLife> doubtless
05:13 <ELGono> hehe did bgp-prepend 47868
05:13 <CoderForLife> ouch
05:13 <ELGono> wich was interpreted as 47868 modulo 256 = 252
05:13 <ELGono> so he added 252 hops to his route
05:13 <CoderForLife> yup
05:14 <ELGono> but ciscos seems to have problem with more than 255 hops in a route
05:14 <CoderForLife> border gateway protocol is powerful/dangerous

12:11 <Zombie> Is anyone here? I'm having an issue starting BOINC
12:12 <Zombie> BOINC is not running (no lockfiles found). [ OK ]
12:12 <Zombie> /etc/init.d/boinc-client: line 333: [: too many arguments
12:12 <Zombie> Starting BOINC client as a daemon:
12:16 <MTughan> Zombie: Linux OS, I guess? What BOINC version?
12:16 <Zombie> 6.4.5
12:16 <MTughan> Does the same thing happen with "service boinc-client start"?
12:17 <Zombie> Yes.Yes.
12:17 <MTughan> Did you install from a package or download the binaries from the BOINC site? Or even compile them yourself?
12:17 <PovAdct_w> what distro?
12:17 <Romulus> It has been said that what distro is this, PovAdct_w
12:18 <Zombie> Mandriva, packages.
12:18 <PovAdct_w> seems a bug in your /etc/init.d/boinc-client
12:18 <PovAdct_w> btw mandriva package is broken in another way... once you get the client to start, you won't be able to get work!
12:18 <Zombie> This is a fresh package.
12:18 <PovAdct_w> define fresh
12:19 <Zombie> Are you going on what is in Cooker?
12:19 <PovAdct_w> I don't run mandriva, what's cooker?
12:19 <Zombie> I'm a package.
12:19 <Zombie> Cooker is Mandriva development.
12:20 <PovAdct_w> anyway, that error is the mandriva-specific boinc startup script being broken; complain to mandriva
12:21 <ELGono> zombie wich arguments you have at init.d script?
12:21 <ELGono> also it seems that no further investigation is necessary if i understand pov right
12:21 <ELGono> -also +although
12:24 <PovAdct_w> hmm
12:25 <PovAdct_w> Zombie: /etc/init.d/boinc-client line 118, what username is set there?
12:26 <Zombie> root, which it probably should not be
12:26 <PovAdct_w> o_O
12:26 <MTughan> I could see boinc_master or your own username, but definitely not root.
12:27 <Zombie> boinc has a user name.
12:27 <PovAdct_w> second reason to think "note to self, don't run mandriva"
12:27 <Zombie> its just boinc
12:27 <MTughan> I've seen boinc_master and boinc_project, but never boinc by itself... Well, that seems a better username to run under anyway, rather than root.

12:45 <Soul_keeper> i don't think i can speed perl up here ... for some reason it was like 50x faster reading from a db than it is reading from a large array
12:51 <ELGono> split in smaller arrays if possible
12:51 <MTughan> lol... In the trial of TPB, one of the members wrote a post on Twitter: "Pwnage."
12:53 <ELGono> iirc if you just want a line out of an array in perl, the array matrix is multiplied with an unit vector
12:54 <ELGono> to get a complete row out of the matrix it does at much matrix mulplications as you have rows in the matrix
12:54 <ELGono> -at +as
12:54 <ELGono> and adds the results
12:55 <Zombie> I'm recompiling/
12:59 <Soul_keeper> yeah it's not good
12:59 <Soul_keeper> i'm going to just do it in C
12:59 <Soul_keeper> :)
12:59 <ELGono> hehe might be better
12:59 <ELGono> could be that there is another function in perl to solve this nice

13:20 <ELGono> hehe i would call it win 5.2 ;)
13:21 <MTughan> Internally, it's NT 6.1. :P
13:21 <MTughan> XP was NT 5.1 IIRC, Vista is 6.0, 7 is 6.1.
13:22 <Zombie> Yes, TI Linking program/
13:28 <Tank_Master> its rumerd the final build for win7 will be out this summer
13:29 <Tank_Master> oh, and build 7022 has been leaked
13:29 <Tank_Master> im gonna d/l it tonight
13:29 <MTughan> If they do get an RC out by April, and it's good, that's quite possible.
13:29 <Tank_Master> the beta was already feature compleate
13:29 <MTughan> But occasionally buggy.
13:29 <Tank_Master> so the RC will just be bug and performance fixes
13:31 <Zombie> I'm trying to build the final section of TILP2. kde-private.h is complaining an implicit declaration of QObject.
13:31 <MTughan> Sounds like a missing header that includes QObject.

14:59 <ELGono> wich is an event in exams time
15:00 <ELGono> err period
15:00 <hawmps> A day without beer is like... a day without beer.
15:01 <hawmps> anyone running boinc on a tesla yet?
15:02 <ELGono> no experience with telsa so far
15:06 <hawmps> 4 1070's on an i7 940 platform could be amazing...
15:06 <hawmps> needs 32gb of memory though...
15:07 <hawmps> mucho mucho spendy
15:07 <ELGono> ;)
15:08 <hawmps> the microway version would be about the best - they've always has the top number smashers...

17:02 <FreeLarry> and people used to wonder why i didn't jump into a refinance every time the equity in my house went up
17:03 <FreeLarry> now they are wondering why i don't have the big problem meeting mortgage payment that they are

17:06 * CoderForLife hears some crowing outside
17:06 <FreeLarry> lol a little - think a flock flew over house
17:06 <CoderForLife> sounds like it's coming from the west
17:06 <FreeLarry> big time ;)

17:08 <FreeLarry> oops
17:08 <MTughan> This one's still active. :P
17:09 * FreeLarry wonders if he should continue trying out the install of boinc on linux instructions from seti
17:10 <FreeLarry> under the optional set up hints that is
17:11 *** sigmund_ is now known as sigmund

17:14 <FreeLarry> oh no half of MTughan died
17:14 <MTughan> No...
17:14 <CoderForLife> fortunately it was the mutant half with the tail
17:14 <FreeLarry> yes
17:15 <CoderForLife> not that I'm prejudiced against tails - they're great
17:15 <CoderForLife> diversity, and all that
17:15 <FreeLarry> ahh but they do tend to get in the way of fun
17:16 <PovAddict> no comments
17:17 <CoderForLife> "no comments" is a comment
17:17 <FreeLarry> lol PovAddict do you even know what fun FreeLarry is imagining
17:17 <PovAddict> I don't *want* to know
17:17 <FreeLarry> rofl
17:18 <FreeLarry> daughter was happy to get the refurbed laptop but already asking me to put a larger hd in it
17:19 <FreeLarry> seems she filled up the 30 gig with photos and music
17:19 <CoderForLife> all backup somewhere, of course
17:19 <CoderForLife> backed up
17:19 <FreeLarry> yup from external hd i gave her
17:20 <FreeLarry> recovered from her first laptop that got destroyed
17:21 <xcamel> hmmm.. asus rampage II, I7/965, 6gb memory, 1KW ps... this is starting to look good...
17:21 <FreeLarry> yeah the really high priced i7
17:22 <FreeLarry> went with a 850W ps for my 940 here
17:23 <FreeLarry> so far have only peeked 2 gig of memory usage out of the 12 installed
17:23 <FreeLarry> mostly at 1.2 gig usage
17:37 <xcamel> and that's with winduhs?
17:37 <wdsmia> re-hi
17:37 <FreeLarry> fedora 10 xcamel
17:38 <FreeLarry> x86_64
17:40 <FreeLarry> vista in safe mode with 4 abc units going using slightly more than 1 gig
17:41 <xcamel> oki
17:45 <xcamel> I still can't run boincmgr in kde 4.2
17:46 <FreeLarry> humm running gnome on mine and package installed correctly using instructions from http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Installing_BOINC_on_Fedora
17:47 <FreeLarry> i did make it so didn't require pw when starting on local host
17:49 <FreeLarry> it may not install the icon incorrect spot for you in kde but think the daemon should install correctly then you would need to make launcher for manager
17:50 <xcamel> it's just some pesky font size/color error..
17:51 <FreeLarry> ahh - yeah wish could change screen size on gnome also as manager uses lower size than desktop for resolution it looks like
17:52 <FreeLarry> at least sscrollbars show up
17:56 * FreeLarry leaves to go chase the sewer ducks out of area - really smelling the place up
17:59 <xcamel> gnome can be a real pain.
18:00 <PovAddict> I use KDE 3.5; after trying KDE 4.1 and some version of GNOME, I came to the conclusion that all *three* suck :)
18:04 <xcamel> KDE 3.5 doesn't 'suck'
18:04 <Tank_Master> it blows
18:04 <PovAddict> depends on your threshold
18:04 <PovAddict> almost all software sucks in some way
18:05 <MTughan> I could never figure out the menu structure of KDE.
18:05 <xcamel> some of it blows
18:06 <PovAddict> like I usually say... Mac OS X can't be called the best user interface, but maybe it's the "least bad" in many cases
18:07 <MTughan> Best development model I've seen anyway. ;)
18:07 <PovAddict> I don't know about that yet
18:07 <MTughan> When it's actually used, that is...
18:07 <MTughan> BOINC uses the programatic way, which is older.
18:08 <PovAddict> now I'm not sure I know what you're talking about anymore
18:08 <MTughan> Cocoa > Carbon || wxWidgets
18:08 <MTughan> That work a little better? :P
18:08 <PovAddict> prove it
18:09 <Romulus> Title: SourceForge.net: BOINC Manager (at sourceforge.net)
18:09 <MTughan> And that hasn't been active for a while because of school and hardware troubles.
18:09 <MTughan> I've had an offer of help for it.
18:10 <MTughan> And really the only reason it's not fully functional yet is because the API adapter library isn't fully functional.
18:10 <PovAddict> got your Mac back now?
18:10 <MTughan> Yes, I do.
18:10 <Tank_Master> nice
18:11 <Tank_Master> ganna put safari 4 on it?
18:11 <MTughan> Nope, don't like Safari.
18:11 <Tank_Master> :P
18:11 <Tank_Master> but thats blasphamy
18:11 <MTughan> It's a good browser, but I prefer the Gecko based. Maybe just historical.
18:12 <Tank_Master> acording to the apple culture
18:12 <xcamel> opera runs great on the mac
18:12 <MTughan> I like Firefox or Camino.
18:12 <PovAddict> what's your experience with office suites on Mac?
18:13 <PovAddict> my dad uses NeoOffice and its speed is horrible (at least on the old PowerBook; still haven't tried the new MacBook)
18:13 <MTughan> Not much. Office 2004 didn't like my Crystal Clear modification. OpenOffice 2.x and NeoOffice did well, but OpenOffice was used through X, and NeoOffice ran slow.
18:14 <MTughan> From my limited experience with OpenOffice 3.x, it seems to run better.
18:14 <PovAddict> OOo3 faster than NeoOffice?
18:14 <Tank_Master> what about office 2008?
18:14 <MTughan> It's Aqua native.
18:14 <Tank_Master> any experence?
18:14 <MTughan> And I don't have Office '08.
18:14 <Tank_Master> ah
18:15 <PovAddict> Safari 4 "Adds ability to save webpages as standalone web applications."
18:15 <PovAddict> sigh
18:15 <MTughan> Probably a Dashboard widget?
18:15 <PovAddict> we're on track for hell: our desktops becoming HTML thin clients
18:15 <xcamel> we're a little beyond hell now...
18:15 <MTughan> OpenOffice 3 brings the Aqua interface, so it's no longer a ported Linux version or in Java.
18:16 <PovAddict> MTughan: and thus looks better; but how much faster does it feel?
18:16 <MTughan> Seems to be all right, but by limited experience, I really mean limited. Fired it up to go through the setup process, then launched a text document, and closed it.
18:18 <MTughan> Let me see if I can find something...
18:19 <MTughan> Loads slowly, even more slowly than the comparable Windows or Linux versions it seems.
18:21 <MTughan> Wow, the spreadsheet is old... Details a computer I'd like to get, and while it has the Q9xxx quads on it, the graphics card is an 8600GT or higher. :P
18:21 <Tank_Master> :)
18:22 <MTughan> And a Radeon HD3650.
18:24 <MTughan> Seems that once it's loaded, it loads other files fast.
18:28 <MTughan> Looks like it's relatively snappy.
18:28 <MTughan> 169MB of memory according to iStat Menus, which is lower than NeoOffice, and this is with three documents open.
18:28 <CoderForLife> xcamel - with all your snow, you need a fjord http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/02/24/ice-age-or-global-warming/
18:32 <CoderForLife> The Truth Is Out There - UFOs are sprites http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,499224,00.html
18:34 <PovAddict> my favorite fast ubuntu mirror dropped most files for Hardy :(
18:34 <CoderForLife> that's bad
18:35 <CoderForLife> a broken mirror is bad luck
18:41 <jasong> Is there a way to make it so that browser code doesn't run unless the page is in the foreground.("browser code" may be an incorrect term, I'm mostly talking about flash animations)
18:42 <MTughan> Probably, but I would imagine not without a browser code modification.
18:42 <jasong> I'd like to open up a bunch of pages at once without my laptop sounding like it's going to take to the air
18:42 <PovAddict> uninstall Flash
18:42 <MTughan> Try NoScript for Firefox.
18:42 <jasong> Yeah, NoScript, thanks
18:42 <jasong> (bad memory)
18:42 <MTughan> IIRC, it can be configured to just block Flash and not JS.
18:42 <jasong> Again, i guess I misused the term
18:43 <jasong> (I'm not good with the jargon)
18:45 <jasong> damn, that was fast
18:45 <jasong> Less than 3 minutes
18:46 <MTughan> To do what?
18:46 <jasong> to install the plugin, including searching for it
18:46 <PovAddict> why should it take more?
18:46 <jasong> Of course, I haven't actually tried it yet
18:46 <MTughan> Firefox plugins don't take long to install, the major thing is downloading and restarting.
18:46 <jasong> Well, I thought I 'd really have to search for it
19:05 <MTughan> Well, Google's getting in on the European Commision's investigation into IE bundling.
19:07 <CoderForLife> they want Chrome bundled instead?
19:08 <MTughan> Probably their end goal, but they probably won't get Chrome bundled exclusively.
19:09 <MTughan> Opera would probably have the front choice, as they were the ones who filed the complaint. Mozilla was next, and now Google.
19:12 <xcamel> ok.. boincmgr will run in kde 4.2 on fc10
19:13 <xcamel> but I can't seem to add a simple damn icon on the desktop for it.
19:20 <PovAddict> OS X bundles safari and I don't see lawsuits
19:20 <CoderForLife> Ubiquity Breeds Contempt (tm)
19:21 <MTughan> That, and Safari is much more standards compliant than IE.
19:21 <xcamel> Larry?
19:56 <CoderForLife> &seen benje

19:58 <CoderForLife> indeed
19:59 <CoderForLife> at least we still have KathrynM
20:04 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc
20:05 <jasong> I've been thinking about the problem of the diagonal measurement of an HDTV not meaning the same as for a standard definition tv. maybe we could get more value for our money if they sold either a boxy cross-shaped tv, or a tv that doesn't have any light emitting stuff in the corners. Then people could get their needed real estate for both standard and high-definition tv
20:05 <jasong> What do you think, guys?
20:06 <MTughan> Well, my GPU can hold at least 30 tasks at once in VRAM...
20:07 <CoderForLife> I think I'm too tired to think

20:08 <twoguns2670> hey
20:08 <MTughan> twoguns2670 uses a QWERTY KB. :)
20:08 <twoguns2670> a company died here
20:09 <twoguns2670> and i bought two computers really cheap from them
20:09 <xcamel> always nice..
20:09 <CoderForLife> I'm 0ff f0r the evening - I'm g0ing t0 av0id watching 0bama because I will just get furi0us
20:09 <CoderForLife> gn
20:09 <twoguns2670> a IMB for $75 and a dell for $150
20:09 <xcamel> no zero for you...
20:09 <twoguns2670> oh is he on?
20:10 <twoguns2670> hey
20:10 <xcamel> I need a quad tesla
20:10 <CoderForLife> he's way off
20:10 <CoderForLife> nighty-nite
20:10 <xcamel> built on an I7/965 platform
20:10 <twoguns2670> anyways where was the irc that dropped you ibto this room
20:11 <xcamel> conectile dysfunction?
20:11 <jasong> Does anyone know how to prevent the bug that makes Fedora 10 install from the wrong repositories?
20:11 <twoguns2670> yea new mirc will not recieve files
20:12 <jasong> I guess it's possible my dvd was mis-labeled, but I don't want the same thing to happen after having my cruncher out of commission for two hours
20:13 <xcamel> never seen that happen....
20:13 <jasong> I've been told it was solved in Fedora 10, so I may have accidentally installed one of the older ones
20:13 <jasong> This time I've made sure it't the right kernel
20:14 <jasong> (I'm trying to cover my bases)
20:14 <jasong> oh, and I figured out the problem I was having before
20:14 <jasong> My dvd reader had a dirty lens, so files were getting corrupted
20:15 <jasong> Linux is better than Windows, but it still has problems
20:15 <xcamel> I just updated my fc 10 - it works fine
20:16 <xcamel> quirky.. but fine..
20:16 <wdsmia> lol
20:16 *** vlazar_ has joined #boinc
20:16 <jasong> (Linux is for smart people. Windows is for gamers, stupid users and people who fall for hype. Apple stuff is for people with more money than sense)
20:17 <xcamel> I have all 3 and it's linux, mac, and winduhs, in that order
20:18 <jasong> Well, then you're smart, probably a gamer, and like having stuff done for you SOMETIMES :)
20:19 <jasong> My big problem is with people who say Windows is more usable than Linux. That's not rational thought, that's just plain old fear of change
20:20 <jasong> I don't want to do stuff command-line *WHINE* Rather than read the manual I'm going to randomly click stuff until my problem is solved
20:20 <FreeLarry> xcamel under gnome it adds an icon in system tab but i have never had luck creating a launcer direct on desktop
20:20 * jasong shuts up
20:21 <FreeLarry> jasong i have tried but cant keep enough info in head to remember how i did it the last time when using linux but still try
20:22 <FreeLarry> and poor old books getting a little to dog eared
20:23 * FreeLarry the old addage about if you don't use you lose is very true - and older i get faster lost
20:28 <xcamel> I got it larry.. folder views
20:28 <xcamel> under kde
20:29 <FreeLarry> ahh thanks for info
20:29 *** vostorga has quit IRC
20:34 *** clusty has quit IRC
20:37 <twoguns2670> ah so now i have three computers running boinc :)
20:37 <wdsmia> only 3?
20:37 <jasong> lol
20:37 <twoguns2670> well i let the mainframes rest
20:37 <jasong> oh, speaking of which...give me a sec, I've got a cool link
20:38 <twoguns2670> tape drives will wear out
20:38 <FreeLarry> hush doug - i don't even want to speculate on your number
20:38 <twoguns2670> lol
20:38 <PovAddict> jasong: GUI-wise, Windows *is* more usable than Linux... unfortunately
20:39 <FreeLarry> true PovAddict but only because i think it was first to market and more people got used to it
20:39 <PovAddict> FreeLarry: in some aspects, yes
20:39 <twoguns2670> hmmm
20:39 <PovAddict> but try to use both OSs without a mouse, for example
20:40 <FreeLarry> yeah windows does seem to have a slight advantage with the tab and arrow keys
20:40 <twoguns2670> hmmmm
20:40 <PovAddict> I thought Mac OS X was the worst in that aspect
20:40 <jasong> Pov, the basic GUI concept hasn't changed in like forever, command-line gives better control, but people(especially Americans) are lazy
20:40 <PovAddict> then I noticed there was a setting for it
20:40 <twoguns2670> people that had my computers and mouse are unemployed now
20:40 <PovAddict> jasong: yes, definitely
20:41 <jasong> Okay, so we're agreeing from different perspectives
20:41 <PovAddict> jasong: there is a reason that I think all Linux GUIs suck and I use it anyway :P
20:41 <PovAddict> jasong: the graphical app I use the most is... Konsole
20:41 <jasong> Why do they suck :)
20:41 <jasong> What does Konsole do? Is that different version of a bash prompt?
20:42 <jasong> brb
20:42 <PovAddict> it's a graphical app that shows a terminal inside :P
20:42 <PovAddict> like xterm and many others
20:43 <jasong> hmmmm, sorry to be dense, but what is it mostly used for? Maintaining the computer in a better way than just a console?
20:44 <Tank_Master> giving pov something to do
20:44 <PovAddict> it's the only way to use the command line if you *also* use a GUI
20:44 <PovAddict> otherwise you'd have to go to a direct tty (the full-screen blackness with text)
20:45 <jasong> oh, okay, I was assuming it was more special than mine. I have the same thing, it's just referred to differently, and might not be the exacct same program
20:45 <PovAddict> there are dozens of those
20:45 <PovAddict> GNOME Terminal?
20:45 <jasong> probably
20:45 <jasong> My brain doesn't work like other people's, so sometimes I misinterpret stuff
20:46 <jasong> A perfect example is the fact that I hate it when people(especially politicians) call the US government a democracy
20:47 <xcamel> any terminal or console scree will run it
20:47 <jasong> The US government isn't a democracy, and God-willing, will never become one
20:47 <FreeLarry> always thought was republic
20:47 <jasong> lol., shutting up again
20:47 <jasong> yes
20:47 <jasong> Constitutional Republic
20:47 <xcamel> representative republic
20:48 <jasong> democracies are a form of governmental suicide
20:48 <jasong> Well, the constititution is the law of the land, but below that it allows representatives to be elected
20:48 <FreeLarry> which is where democracy plays
20:49 <xcamel> you're watching a socialist oligarchy form right in front of your eyes.
20:49 <FreeLarry> representative then do the repulic part
20:49 <jasong> I'm not an expert, but I live in Arkansas, so people call me smart. Personally, I think it's all relative
20:49 <jasong> I'll have to look up oligarchy, but I agree with the other word
20:50 <xcamel> Arkansas, relative best not used in same sentence...
20:50 <jasong> lol
20:50 <FreeLarry> from this ex iowan - will not pass on what arkansas was refered to
20:50 <xcamel> O'Bummer.
20:50 <jasong> I've decided it's more important to be happy, than rich, which is why I love the state of Arkansas
20:50 <xcamel> AR-Kansas
20:51 * jasong fetches his shotgun
20:51 <jasong> Arkansaw
20:51 <FreeLarry> lol - don't get to close to the still - the tractor will get jealous
20:52 <xcamel> and to think they gave us clintoon
20:52 * FreeLarry moonshine = tractor fuel additive
20:52 <twoguns2670> economy is really bad here
20:52 <xcamel> where?
20:52 <twoguns2670> and no one is paying their bills
20:52 <twoguns2670> chicago
20:53 <xcamel> dems run everything into the ground...
20:53 * FreeLarry a quick look at checkbook - my daily balance now at -350
20:53 <twoguns2670> local government works well
20:53 <FreeLarry> not what the bank says but my working balance
20:54 <twoguns2670> tate and beyond sucks
20:54 <MTughan> Not sure how we're doing, but I hear we're weathering the recession better than the US.
20:54 <xcamel> sure, TG - if you like living in Moscow..

20:59 * xcamel waits for the stupid comet to get high enough to see...
20:59 <MTughan> 'lo TM
20:59 <FreeLarry> ahh is there another comet due?
20:59 <twoguns2670> oh anyone have sstellarium?
21:00 <twoguns2670> pretty cool program
21:00 <xcamel> tonight - just blow LEO, and just right of saturn
21:00 <FreeLarry> long time ago had program but machine long gone
21:00 <xcamel> use kstars
21:00 <xcamel> 'comet Lulin'
21:00 <FreeLarry> just now getting dusk
21:01 <twoguns2670> i see saturn, no comet :(
21:01 <twoguns2670> city lights
21:02 * FreeLarry wonders if shooting out street light in his yard would help seeing the stars
21:02 <xcamel> you need a dark spot, or binocs
21:02 <xcamel> it has 2 green tails
21:03 <FreeLarry> with overcast skies doesn't matter here
21:03 <xcamel> you can see it through march 4th
21:03 *** Aeternus has quit IRC
21:03 <FreeLarry> humm maybe have one clear night by then
21:03 <FreeLarry> but doubt it as is seattle area
21:05 <twoguns2670> hmmmm
21:05 <twoguns2670> i went whale watching in seattle
21:05 <FreeLarry> i see mayor of seattle all indignant as didn't get his wish list for stimulas package
21:06 <xcamel> King-Of-Corruption county
21:06 <twoguns2670> i think it is all going to fail
21:06 <FreeLarry> state designated 75 million for 35 road projects statewide none in seattle and seattle wanted 80 million for two projects
21:06 <FreeLarry> got that right x
21:06 <xcamel> shovel ready -- onle large pile of donkey-doo.
21:07 <FreeLarry> almost makes chicago look like small timers
21:08 <FreeLarry> and before i upset 2guns - i enjoyed my time around chicago when i went to bootcamp at greatlakes
21:08 <twoguns2670> ah
21:09 <FreeLarry> only 300 miles from where i grew up
21:09 <twoguns2670> they closed our other bases
21:09 <FreeLarry> huh glakes isn't there anymore?
21:09 <twoguns2670> they made great lakes bigger
21:09 <FreeLarry> bootcamp oneside and school command the other
21:10 <twoguns2670> ww2 the navys other training bases had germans sinking training ships
21:10 * FreeLarry is banging head to see if he can remember anything from past life
21:10 <twoguns2670> thus the love for great lakes
21:11 <FreeLarry> it did have a nice beach area that was never really talked about
21:11 <FreeLarry> but boy is the water cold in january
21:13 <twoguns2670> glenview ohara and fort sheridan were closed down
21:13 <twoguns2670> rantool too
21:14 <twoguns2670> so we lost 4 bases
21:14 <xcamel> ok.. it's pretty dim, but I found it.
21:14 <FreeLarry> ummm sounds more like the army, marines and airforce
21:14 <jasong> How much money could I get for a 2-core Turion(not sure what speed) with 3 gig of RAM and a 100 Gig or so hard drive? since most people are scared of Linux(especially in Arkansas) I can offer them a code that's never been used and give them a free install of XP. Although, they might think they own an illegal copy since I'd give them a legal code, but a copy of Windows XP(not cracked) on a dvd-r
21:14 <xcamel> just right of saturn
21:15 <MTughan> jasong: Laptop?
21:15 <jasong> yeah, sorry, forgot that part
21:15 <MTughan> I guess based on the Turion name. :P
21:15 <FreeLarry> screen size?
21:15 <jasong> I think 15.4, I'm not good at judging by looking at stuff
21:15 <MTughan> You should put a distro with KDE 4.2 on it and say it's got Win7. xD
21:15 <jasong> inces
21:15 <jasong> +h
21:16 <jasong> lol
21:16 * FreeLarry just paid 200 for dell latitude d600 w/ xp pro and 30 gig hd 512 meg memory
21:16 *** CoderForLife has quit IRC
21:16 <MTughan> ZDNet Australia actually tried doing that, and people believed it!
21:16 <FreeLarry> so due to more memory and larger hd would probably go maybe 250
21:16 *** Tank_Master has quit IRC
21:17 <jasong> Well, while it would be illegal, somebody could come up with a fake splash screen that says it's Windows 7
21:17 * FreeLarry cant remember where turon comes in with 1.4 centrinos and pentium m's
21:17 <jasong> (Well, it would be illegal if they bought it for that reason. If I did it on my laptop to screw with people, I'd probably be safe from the lawyers)
21:18 <twoguns2670> me too
21:18 <MTughan> Should be easy enough to modify a boot screen yeah. Ubuntu comes with a boot screen that covers the startup message, should be able to replace that.
21:18 <MTughan> Be a great trick, I should try that sometime... xD
21:19 <jasong> I want a fake screen that says my laptop was created by Cyberdyne Systems Inc.
21:19 <jasong> Or whatever the name is
21:19 <MTughan> In XP, you can put that information in the System Properties window.
21:19 <MTughan> Probably in Vista and Win7 too, but I haven't tried it recently.
21:19 <jasong> lol, fun
21:20 <FreeLarry> alright now i can restart molehill for windoze update - burp finally finished its wu
21:20 *** efc has joined #boinc
21:21 <FreeLarry> if i didn't let burp finish it would lose all the processing time it had
21:21 <MTughan> jasong: http://www.overclock.net/faqs/15056-info-oeminfo-edit.html
21:21 <MTughan> All right, except for the image name. Should be Oemlogo.bmp .
21:22 <efc> moo
21:23 <twoguns2670> moo moo efc
21:28 <FreeLarry> omg - i don't believe it - the quad linux machine finally cracked the 5K rac for abc
21:30 <FreeLarry> that explains it it just completed one of the treasure hunt 1000 credit units
21:34 <jasong> Freelarry, how long did the workunit take?
21:38 <FreeLarry> it varies some only take one day others take two days had one less than 12 hrs - depends on which machine did the wu
21:39 <jasong> Does anyone here know wblipp? (that's his name on Mersenne Forum)
21:39 <Romulus> Title: CPU-Z Validator 3.0 (at valid.canardpc.com)
21:39 * FreeLarry wont even admit to knowing FreeLarry much less anyone else
21:40 <jasong> yoyo incorporated ecm into BOINC and I want someone who wasn't involved(I was the one who suggested it to yoyo) to see how he feels about having his project supported by boinc.
21:40 <jasong> I have a paranoid fear that he's mad at me about it
21:41 <PovAddict> why, you give him more CPU power
21:41 <FreeLarry> nice MTughan i think you'll like those cpu's got 2 here - would like to get my hands on your gpu's tho
21:41 <MTughan> BOINC has a hard time with it right now though...
21:41 <MTughan> I'm running 30 tasks through it again... :(
21:42 <FreeLarry> ooooo a bit of a load
21:42 <MTughan> Even though they're GPU apps, they're taking over a core in CPU time.
21:42 <FreeLarry> yup cpu still required by gpu's
21:42 <MTughan> About 31% according to Windows, one core is 25%.
21:43 <FreeLarry> ouch
21:44 <MTughan> About to have 20 of those tasks finish within a couple seconds of each other... :P
21:45 <FreeLarry> then isp crunch time
21:45 <FreeLarry> still occasionally get router overload from rectilinear if too many machines finish at same time
21:45 <MTughan> Heh.
21:46 <FreeLarry> especially if rectiliniear has a lot of short units
21:46 <MTughan> And now I can't get more MW WUs... :(
21:46 <FreeLarry> hit the limit?
21:47 <MTughan> I did before, of 48 tasks at once.
21:47 <MTughan> Crunched 30 of those at once, and had finished off some before. Had 6 tasks left, those just finished.
21:47 <FreeLarry> Maximum daily WU quota per CPU 5000/day
21:47 <FreeLarry> on my i7 machine
21:47 <MTughan> Yep, but you're only allowed 12 tasks/CPU at any one time.
21:48 <MTughan> For me, that's 48 tasks. For an i7, that'd be 96.
21:48 <MTughan> 2/24/2009 9:23:41 PM|Milkyway@home|Message from server: No work sent
21:48 <FreeLarry> this limit? Tasks 1
21:48 <MTughan> 2/24/2009 9:23:41 PM|Milkyway@home|Message from server: (reached per-CPU limit of 12 tasks)
21:48 <FreeLarry> ahh
21:49 <MTughan> I'm allowed 20,000 tasks a day, yeah. But at any one time, I can only have 48.
21:49 <FreeLarry> haven't reached that limit ever here
21:49 <FreeLarry> only on burp which limits to 2 per cpu
21:49 <MTughan> With an i7, it'd be 96, because BOINC sees 8 cores.
21:49 <MTughan> Got 3, finally..
21:50 <Romulus> Title: YouTube - Everything's amazing, nobody's happy (at www.youtube.com)
21:50 * FreeLarry humm 8 times 12 += 96 to bad cant support that many gpus - or even afford them
21:50 <MTughan> And another 45... Okay, I'm maxed again. :)
21:51 <FreeLarry> srry PovAddict don't have sound hooked up to this machine
21:52 <FreeLarry> i thought a 9400 card may support gpu but found out it didn't
21:52 <MTughan> CUDA or MW apps?
21:53 <FreeLarry> be a few more months before consider upgrading it
21:53 <FreeLarry> new machine says no cuda devices
21:53 <MTughan> I presume you have Nvidia drivers installed?
21:53 <FreeLarry> welll am a little slow - only what fedora10 installed initially
21:54 <xcamel> laterz..
21:54 <FreeLarry> its an msi board
21:54 <FreeLarry> later don
21:54 <FreeLarry> arrgggg jay
21:55 <MTughan> FreeLarry: Looks like the 9400GT support it, the lowest 9xxx series card that does.
21:55 * FreeLarry goes to bang head on wall to try and get thoughts back in order
21:55 <MTughan> What card do you have?
21:55 <FreeLarry> thats what iit is guess i need to yum update to get drivers then
21:55 <FreeLarry> msi 9400gt
21:56 <FreeLarry> ns
21:56 <MTughan> I think you'll need drivers from Nvidia, but however it works, it should be supported.
21:56 <FreeLarry> yeah will look later
21:57 * FreeLarry lets see have to search for name then yum install whatever
21:57 <MTughan> bbl, getting some food.
21:57 * FreeLarry or is yum search nvidia
21:57 <FreeLarry> tc MTughan
22:00 <FreeLarry> dang forgot need to change to root before doing
