10:19 <ELGono> is there any way to tell boinc, to load 3 setiadvanced instances?
10:19 <ELGono> now it's using one SSE3 seti advanced and another seti adv. on cuda
10:20 <ELGono> but load on 2nd processor screems for another seti process
10:20 <PovAdct_w> BOINC scheduler hasn't worked right since they added GPU support
10:20 <PovAdct_w> there is no way to tell boinc to do what you want, there has never been
10:20 <PovAdct_w> in your case, it should be automatically doing what you want (but it doesn't)
10:21 <ELGono> it did before adding SSE3 support
10:21 <ELGono> before that 2 astropulse and 1 cuda were running

11:28 <Tank_Master> hummm
11:28 <Soul_keeper> amd just announced their first mobile parts on 40nm today
11:28 <Tank_Master> that just might be my next card...
11:29 <Soul_keeper> well besides porting over 1 million lines of seti code to be stream capable, there is no other way to crunch on my 3870 in linux
11:30 <MTughan> Radeon HD3870?
11:30 <Soul_keeper> yeah
11:31 <Soul_keeper> this is enough to make me not buy ati cards
11:31 <MTughan> Yeah, the only GPU apps for ATI cards that I know of are Windows apps on MW...
11:31 <Soul_keeper> it can be done, but it would take a good programmer probably a month to port seti over for linux and stream
11:31 <MTughan> That's the thing. The latest generation of ATI cards can be just as fast as Nvidia cards, or even faster, but BOINC did Nvidia first.
11:32 <Soul_keeper> i'm sure the boinc team would add detected if you showed them a stream capable linux app
11:32 <Soul_keeper> detection*
11:32 <MTughan> Why Linux and not Windows?
11:33 <Soul_keeper> because i hate windows
11:33 <Soul_keeper> havn't booted it in over 5yrs
11:33 <MTughan> Sorry to say it, but Windows has much more desktop placement than Linux.
11:33 <Soul_keeper> and ?
11:33 <Romulus> It has been said that and is with no internet for like a month, Soul_keeper

12:49 <MTughan> jackygrahamez: The new Mac minis come with Nvidia 9400M chipsets, which can do CUDA.
12:49 <jackygrahamez> Hmm excellent
12:49 <MTughan> However, you'll need to load either Windows or Linux on it to do CUDA with BOINC for now.
12:49 <jackygrahamez> I'll take 8 :-)
12:50 <jackygrahamez> gosh darn it

12:50 <jackygrahamez> Parallels?
12:50 <MTughan> Easy enough to do with Boot Camp in Leopard though, so don't get too disappointed yet.
12:50 <MTughan> Parallels is a virtual machine, not native.
12:50 <PovAddict> virtual machines don't give access to the GPU
12:50 <jackygrahamez> gotcha
12:51 <MTughan> Well, they do. Just not directly, and usually emulated.
12:51 <MTughan> But for simplicity, just use Pov's statement.

17:18 <MTughan> BTW, has anyone been able to get to Ramsey@Home's site recently?
17:18 <xcamel> acorn is only about promoting a socialist agenda and stealing elections in america.. what unbiased view would you like to see with that?
17:19 <MTughan> I would like to see someone who's unbiased against any party and not coming from someone who probably hates Obama's guts.
17:19 <CoderForLife> They registered the dead to vote Democratic

17:21 <MTughan> "registered the dead to vote"
17:21 <PovAddict> I dont think there is such hing as 'unbiased by politics' in the US, MTughan
17:21 <MTughan> What about judges?

17:27 <CoderForLife> dead voters are the backbone of Chicago politics
17:28 <CoderForLife> Q.E.D.
17:29 <MTughan> I wouldn't say they're all about "promoting a socialist agenda and stealing elections", but I would agree that seems to be the direction they've gone.
17:30 <CoderForLife> now you are beginning to see
17:33 <MTughan> Reading the comments on the second page, some say that that state requires government ID to actually vote. So what are the fraudulent ballots doing then?
17:33 <MTughan> If they are dead people, they still need to show ID to actually use them to vote.
17:38 <CoderForLife> the ID can be a number of things, including your utility bill
17:38 <CoderForLife> show something with a name and address that matches the voter roles
17:39 <CoderForLife> not including the use of absentee ballots
17:39 <CoderForLife> dead voters are the epitome of absent
17:40 <xcamel> lots of them in NY too
17:40 <CoderForLife> well enuf politics - the world has taken a dive off the deep end

17:49 <MTughan> GNOME, KDE 3.5, or KDE 4.2? They all suck.
17:49 <xcamel> election 2008 was a perfect storm of mass deception, and mass stupidity.
17:49 <MTughan> I don't find GNOME too bad, but I agree with him.
17:49 <CoderForLife> they got their change alright
17:49 <wdsmia> re-hi
17:50 <CoderForLife> OK - I gotta Code my way into a personal bailout

17:57 <PovAddict> heh, that's an advantage of our mandatory ID

20:22 <Soul_keeper> good work
20:30 <efc> It seems like Maple doesn't like any question I ask it
20:31 <Soul_keeper> you shouldn't talk to your wood like that ...
20:31 <MTughan> AMD is now two companies...
20:31 <Soul_keeper> yup
20:31 <Soul_keeper> did you notice spansion went bankrupt yesterday
20:31 *** Tank_Master has joined #boinc
20:31 <Soul_keeper> that was their joint venture with fujitsu, think they owned 50% of it or something
20:31 <MTughan> Spansion?
20:32 <Soul_keeper> flash memory
20:32 <MTughan> Nope, I didn't...
20:32 <Tank_Master> anyone know how well the geforce 120 performs?
20:32 <efc> several minutes trying to integrate Int(arccos^2(c))
20:32 <Soul_keeper> they created that like 3yrs ago or so
20:32 <MTughan> Hasn't Qimonda filed for bankruptcy?
20:32 <Soul_keeper> hopefully the foundry won't go the same route
20:32 <MTughan> Tank_Master: You mean the card in the Mac Pro?
20:35 <Soul_keeper> there was an article on the spansion situation, think they fired the low level employee's with severence, then gave the upper management a large bonus, then filed for bankrupcy

21:10 *** jasong has quit IRC
21:10 *** jasong1 is now known as jasong
21:34 <jasong> This is off-topic, but I need a bit of help with something. i've been telling everybody(everybody I know in the "real world") that I was going to spend $400 on an electric-powered bike when I'd saved up to a certain amount of "mad money." The thing is, when I googled "electric bike" a few days ago, a quick search found some bikes, but they were priced in the thousands of dollars. Am I off my rocker to think I can get an electric bike for under, say, $600?
21:37 <jasong> nm, I found one for $800, so I probably just found one that was really cheap a while back
21:38 <jasong> Sorry, people, but my brain disorder sometimes makes me believe things that aren't true, and I wasn't sure this time
21:39 <PovAddict> heh
21:39 <PovAddict> do you really have a brain disorder?
21:44 <jasong> Paranoid schizophrenia
21:45 <jasong> That's why I work a KFC even though I have an IQ of about 120
21:46 <jasong> I took a test in the ninth grade, and ended up scoring in the 98th percentile in about half the stuff
21:47 <jasong> I wish I could learn a bit of discipline, because I bet I could do a lot for the BOINC community if I were to learn programming and do things at my own pace
21:48 <jasong> Right now, my biggest problem is that I was lazy when I got sick, and it's only about 15 years later(2 years ago) that I've been in a position where I feel like I could cope with a real job
21:48 <jasong> It's easy to be lazy when everyone knows you're really sick
21:48 <PovAddict> sick?
21:48 <jasong> Now I have to unlearn all those habits
21:49 <jasong> I call my mental illness a sickness.
21:49 <jasong> brain sickness
21:49 <jasong> Not technically medically accurate, but it helps me deal with it
21:50 <jasong> I'll be around people, if anyone wants to continue this coversation, but I'll be surfing the www
21:55 <jasong> Oh, interesting note on paranoid schizophrenia: People with schizophrenia are a lot less likely to get cancer. Schizophrenia is connected to cell death(brain cells in particular), while cancer is connected to overproduction of cells. So if a paranoid schizophrenic smokes to deal with their illness, they're less likely to get cancer than someone with the same habits
21:56 <PovAddict> but better not to smoke
21:57 <MTughan> Sometimes can't be avoided if people keep smoking right outside your building...
21:57 <jasong> Yeah, I don't smoke
21:57 <jasong> With me it's diet soda
21:58 <MTughan> The annoying thing is that there are signs saying people cannot smoke within 10 meters of any door. Do they read that? No.
21:58 <PovAddict> you should see our trains
21:58 <PovAddict> smoking inside the train is, of course, forbidden
21:58 <jasong> Another interesting thing is why do smokers think it's ok to throw their butts on the ground?
21:59 <PovAddict> so people smoke standing at the door
21:59 <PovAddict> when the train is about to leave, they throw the cig and walk in
21:59 <PovAddict> 1. while they were smoking at the door, smoke went in
21:59 <MTughan> And then blow out the last puff in the train?
21:59 <PovAddict> 2. when they get in, and the door closes, they exhale the smoke they have in their lungs
21:59 <jasong> Are the trains computer controlled?
22:00 <jasong> Because if they're controlled by a human, they're risking being left behind
22:00 <PovAddict> lol I wonder if there is any computer inside the station
22:00 <MTughan> Smokers are probably some of the obnoxious people on the planet IMO...
22:00 <PovAddict> btw, real arrival times of our trains are great as random number generators
22:00 <jasong> Well, the American space shuttle is run by a computer with 4 MB of RAM
22:01 <jasong> It wouldn't take much RAM to do a super-specialized task like running a train

22:27 <DrBashir> hi
22:27 <MTughan> 'lo DrBashir
22:27 <DrBashir> i have a dualcore with hypertrading. boinc starts 4 seti processes but only 2 cores give it
22:28 <DrBashir> can i limit it to two
22:28 <DrBashir> i use boinc cmd
22:28 <MTughan> Dual core with HT? A Pentium D?
22:28 <DrBashir> hi MTughan
22:28 <DrBashir> MTughan: no a dualcore atom cpu
22:28 <MTughan> Ah, Atom...
22:29 <MTughan> I know how to do it from the GUI, let me see if I can find it from boinc_cmd or configuration files.
22:29 <DrBashir> when i turn off in the prefs the right quadcore use only 2 cores
22:29 <DrBashir> MTughan: gui dont work
22:29 <DrBashir> :(
22:30 <MTughan> Yep, so I'm looking at another way.
22:30 <DrBashir> ah ok thx
22:30 <DrBashir> i think that 4 tasks slows the wus
22:31 <MTughan> True, each WU would go slower, but it's not twice as slow.
22:31 <MTughan> So with 4 WUs running at once, the mean time per WU is higher, but the throughput is higher.
22:32 <wdsmia> normaly about 20% higher
22:32 <DrBashir> global_prefs.xml
22:32 <DrBashir> there are 4 cpus
22:32 <DrBashir> i edit it now to two
22:33 <DrBashir> wdsmia: why its hypertrading
22:33 <MTughan> Hyperthreading.
22:33 <MTughan> Means that the CPU can run two thread using just one processor, with the second thread using possibly ununsed resources from the first thread.
22:33 <MTughan> two threads8
22:34 <MTughan> threads*
22:34 <MTughan> I can't type tonight...
22:35 *** Soul_keeper has quit IRC
22:35 <MTughan> So while that means that each thread gets less resources than it would using one thread, the processor is used more.
22:35 <MTughan> So it can get more work done in the same amount of time.
22:35 <wdsmia> 20% gain was for the P4 that atom?
22:35 <MTughan> As wdsmia said, about 20% more work.
22:35 <DrBashir> the edit dont work :(
22:36 <wdsmia> err the
22:36 <DrBashir> no error
22:36 <DrBashir> but 4 tasks
22:36 <MTughan> Yeah, that file would be automatically overwritten by BOINC.
22:36 <MTughan> Try this:
22:36 <DrBashir> ok is better i run it with 4 tasks?
22:36 <MTughan> 1) Shut down BOINC
22:37 <MTughan> Yeah, it's better overall if you run 4 tasks.
22:37 <DrBashir> i dont know but i have think its slower with 4 tasks that 2
22:37 <wdsmia> that will do it lol
22:37 <DrBashir> hehe ok
22:37 <MTughan> I was going to post more steps...
22:37 <DrBashir> its not overwritten but ignored
22:37 <MTughan> Oh... Did you shut down BOINC before you edited the file?
22:38 <DrBashir> yes
22:38 <DrBashir> killall boinc
22:38 <DrBashir> ps x no process runs
22:38 <MTughan> What OS are you using?
22:38 <DrBashir> debian lenny (5)
22:38 <MTughan> Killing BOINC isn't exactly the best was to shut it down...
22:38 <MTughan> If you have an init.d script, use that.
22:38 <DrBashir> what is the right way?
22:38 <DrBashir> i havent
22:38 <DrBashir> i have problems with the pack
22:38 <MTughan> Did you install from a package or from source?
22:39 <DrBashir> i must start it in a special dir without it dont start
22:39 <MTughan> So downloaded binaries then...
22:39 <DrBashir> yes with the source works
22:39 <MTughan> I think there's a boinc_cmd option to shut it down.
22:39 <DrBashir> i dont why it is to complicatet to run it but i have the same probs on fedora10 and centos
22:39 <DrBashir> source is the better way
22:40 <DrBashir> i use ./run_client --daemon
22:43 <DrBashir> AK_V8_linux32_ssse3 <- the spezial version can i use for seti on the atom too
22:45 <PovAddict> so i'm looking for info on internet addiction on wikipedia from my ipod touch when i should be sleeping
22:46 <PovAddict> not sure if i should call that ironic or stupid
22:46 <MTughan> Want to help DrBashir? You have more experience in Linux than I do.
22:46 <PovAddict> IRC fromxhere is teh pain
22:46 <DrBashir> my english is very poor
22:46 <DrBashir> hehe
22:46 <DrBashir> what is the problem?
22:46 <Romulus> the problem is that "WorldCommunityGrid" is viewed by gridrepublic as a single project in the resource partition process, DrBashir
22:47 * PovAddict sits on the bot
22:47 <DrBashir> hm Romulus is a bot?
22:47 <DrBashir> i will ignore it now
