00:05 <MTughan> Are you using the GUI?
00:05 <Fwerp> wait
00:06 <zombie67> huh?
00:06 <Fwerp> MTughan i scrolled up and read earlier u said sli has no gain for boinc?
00:06 <MTughan> No, it slows it down.
00:06 <Fwerp> o crap
00:07 <Fwerp> crap crap crap
00:07 <MTughan> Because then BOINC will use only one of the two GPUs.
00:07 <Fwerp> mother f'er
00:07 <MTughan> You need screens hooked up to both GPUs to use both though.
00:07 <Fwerp> on the to-do list for tomo...
00:07 <Fwerp> theres 6 o the machine
00:07 <ball> MTughan: yes, it it optional?

00:08 <Fwerp> bastard
00:08 <zombie67> watching Transformers again. Megan Fox is *smokin'* hot

00:13 <ball> eight core or something.
00:13 <MTughan> What do you have now?
00:13 <Fwerp> MTughan: whts ball doin?
00:14 <MTughan> Fwerp: He changed his processor usage stats to 10% somehow. :P
00:14 <Fwerp> lolol
00:14 <Fwerp> oopsy
00:14 <Fwerp> how many machines he runnin?
00:14 <MTughan> You'll have to ask him. I don't know.
00:14 <Fwerp> oo
00:15 <Fwerp> if boincstats is right im doin pretty good
00:15 <ball> Only machine I have boinc on is a 900 MHz PowerPC G3
00:15 <MTughan> There's occasionally people who come in here just looking for some quick help. ball is one of them.
00:15 <ball> ...that's a laptop :-)
00:15 <MTughan> Old iBook?
00:15 * ball nods
00:15 <MTughan> That's definitely an old laptop now. :P
00:15 <ball> A dual-core G4 would be nice :-)
00:16 <ball> MTughan: trust me, it's more powerful than the machine I've been working on all day.
00:16 <MTughan> I've got a shiny new aluminum MacBook with a Core 2 Duo.
00:16 *** Fwerp has quit IRC

00:17 <Fwerp> my 9800gtx machine has a c2q
00:17 <MTughan> OC'd?
00:17 <ball> Does L2 cache help BOINC much?
00:17 <zombie67> MT, you need me to test any MW stuff?
00:18 <ball> (pondering Core 2 Vs. Pentium Dual Core Vs. Xeon)
00:18 <MTughan> ball: I don't think it matters too much, but it depends on the project too.
00:18 <Fwerp> no oc
00:18 <MTughan> zombie67: If you want.
00:18 <MTughan> Fwerp: Q6600 @ 3.26GHz.
00:18 <Fwerp> the cooling needs changed bad, liquid kit i built for it doesnt cool it for shit i fuq'd up
00:18 <wdsmia> asks Fwerp to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.
00:18 <ball> MTughan: but *some* would be helpful :-)
00:19 <Fwerp> q6600 @ 3.2 = unlocked no speed step and 1337 bus on a 750i board
00:19 <Fwerp> done it a hundred times
00:19 <zombie67> are your apps for PPC or Intel?
00:19 <MTughan> Well, yes. I don't think any OS can go without L2 cache. ;)
00:19 <MTughan> zombie67: Either. It's a Universal app! :D
00:19 <zombie67> sweet!
00:19 <Fwerp> the mre chsache the better, go's for hdd's too
00:19 <MTughan> Fwerp: Nope, it's a locked multipler, 9x. I've just pushed up the FSB high.
00:19 <Fwerp> cache*
00:20 <ball> zombie67: whose apps?
00:20 <MTughan> ball: I compiled some applications for a project.
00:20 <zombie67> MT's MW apps
00:20 <zombie67> MT: you included app_info?
00:20 <Fwerp> MTughan: what did u col the 66 oc'd w/?
00:20 <ball> MTughan: NetBSD can run with no L2 cache... slowly
00:20 <Fwerp> my stock 6700 on w/c is running 60% at 63c
00:21 <MTughan> zombie67: Yep.
00:21 <MTughan> Fwerp: Zalman CNPS9500.
00:21 <MTughan> ball: lol
00:21 <Fwerp> nutts
00:21 <ball> I need a more powerful machine, but I lost my job so hardware's hard to come by.
00:22 <Fwerp> i just oredered three of them tonight btw MTughan!
00:22 <Fwerp> and the asus one
00:22 <ball> My test rig died, so I had to drag this one in from the garage.
00:22 <ball> My test rig was an 800 MHz Pentium III
00:23 <ball> ...it failed.
00:23 <MTughan> Fwerp: Yes, but I have the LED fan. :D
00:23 <MTughan> Goes well with my Antec 900 case.
00:25 <zombie67> wait, before I test them, what am I testing them for? working? or speed improvement?
00:25 <zombie67> if the latter, I have nothing to compare it to.
00:26 <MTughan> Speed improvement. I've already tested them at least a bit.
00:26 <zombie67> okay, then I'll skip testing this time
00:26 <zombie67> I am sure there will be lots of folks on MW that will do the speed testing
00:28 <ball> Are boinc apps generally open source?
00:28 <MTughan> ball: How old was the P3?
00:28 <MTughan> Depends on the project, again. I think most of them are open source, but I don't participate in that many projects.
00:28 *** infinisoft has quit IRC
00:28 <ball> MTughan: I'm not sure. It was a Coppermine
00:29 <ball> I'd rather have a Tualatin
00:29 <ball> I still have the chip, but no mainboard for it.
00:30 <ball> I'll be back shortly.
00:30 <ball> If I had the money, I'd buy a Celeron 420 or perhaps a Pentium Dual Core.
00:31 <MTughan> Why not a Core 2 CPU?
00:31 <MTughan> Or one of AMD's shiny new Phenom IIs?
00:37 *** BadBarbarian has quit IRC
00:39 <ball> MTughan: they're all the same chip, just with different bits disabled.
00:39 <ball> Well, the Celeron may be a different die, I'm not sure
00:39 <ball> Same guts though.
00:39 <MTughan> Yep. So why get a "crippled" chip?
00:39 <ball> I think they even have dual-core Celerons now.
00:40 <ball> MTughan: what little money I can make available, I'd rather spend on RAM
00:40 <MTughan> Ah, true.
00:41 <ball> For my applications (excl. boinc) I suspect more RAM will yield higher perceived speed than more cores
00:41 <ball> (swap is slow)
00:41 <MTughan> Unless you have SSDs, which are more expensive still.
00:41 * ball nods
00:42 <ball> even then it's probably slower than RAM
00:42 <MTughan> Probably, although the seek times are probably near the same.
00:42 <MTughan> Actually, probably not... Because all that data still has to go through the NB and SB.
00:44 <ball> AMD chips are light on cache, but perhaps the on-die DRAM controller offsets that somewhat
00:44 <ball> ...or HyperTransport.
00:44 * ball shrugs
00:44 <ball> it gets confusing.
00:44 <MTughan> Very.
00:44 <ball> ...difficult to compare.
00:47 <ball> okay, I /think/ at 25% this machine isn't going to overheat.
00:47 <MTughan> What cooler do you have on it?
00:47 <ball> ...so I'll let it finish this unit, then retire it.
00:48 <MTughan> Oh, this is the G3?
00:48 <ball> yes, the iBook
00:48 <MTughan> Guess it was never designed to take too much heat...
00:48 <MTughan> What OS are you using?
00:49 <ball> MTughan: this has MacOS X on it.
00:49 <MTughan> Which one?
00:49 <Romulus> Somebody said Which one is giving you headaches, MTughan
00:49 <ball> 10.4 "Tiger" I think
00:49 <MTughan> So fairly recent then.
00:49 <MTughan> At least it's not running 10.3 Panther.
00:50 <ball> MTughan: recent OS on non-recent hardware. Much faster than anything I own though,.
00:50 <MTughan> Well, Apple usually makes sure that their hardware is supported for a while, and is still fast on new versions of OS X.
00:50 <ball> I set up a boinc team for my college.
00:51 <MTughan> Although Snow Leopard drops support for all PPC computers.
00:51 <ball> I was pricing up G4 towers earlier today.
00:51 <ball> I've had issues with Apple firmware though, so making it boot something non-Apple might be tough.
00:51 <MTughan> Refurbished?
00:51 <ball> MTughan: yes.
00:51 <ball> Apparently they also did an aluminium G4 Powerbook
00:52 <ball> I've never seen it though.
00:52 <MTughan> G4 tower... A Power Mac?
00:52 <ball> MTughan: yes
00:52 <MTughan> The next closest thing would be an early Mac mini.
00:53 <ball> I had a PowerPC Mac Mini in my "shopping cart" on apple.com at the time of their transition to Intel
00:53 <ball> ...Apple actually phoned me up to ask what I wanted to do
00:53 <MTughan> Haha, really?
00:53 <MTughan> Nice...
00:53 <ball> ...buy PPC at discount or Intel at full price.
00:53 <ball> I told them to forget it.
00:54 <MTughan> I've always wished for a PPC Mac... Not for developing, but testing how the PPC code I compile actually works.
00:54 <ball> On PowerPC, does boinc make use of Altivec (where present)?
00:54 <ball> ...or is that up to the app?
00:55 <MTughan> BOINC doesn't, but project applications should.
00:55 <ball> Ah, okay.
00:55 <MTughan> I always use Altivec.
00:55 <jasong> Aren't there a lot of people that would have preferred that Apple had stayed with PPC?
00:56 <ball> jasong: I can't speek for the Mac community because I'm mostly a visitor there, but I was sad to see the last desktop RISC platform die.
00:56 <jasong> Well, they had to make a non-RISCy choice, I guess ;)
00:56 <ball> Sun may still sell UltraSPARC workstations, but they're hardly mainstream and their days are probably numbered.
00:57 <ball> jasong: I'm sure it made sound business (and even engineering) sense.
00:57 <MTughan> Yeah, and I've only been involved in Macs for 2.5 years. Started about half a year after the transition.
00:57 <ball> ...and full credit to Apple - they, like Sun have managed the CISC -> RISC -> CISC transition smoothly.
00:58 <ball> Sun probably did it without the emulation thing though.
00:58 <ball> Hmm... I have a couple of Athlon chips here somewhere
00:58 <ball> Athlon64 and Athlon XP
00:59 <ball> ...board would probably cost more than the whole machine would be worth though.
01:00 <ball> xload shows quite clearly where I altered the proportion of max CPU that boinc gets
01:01 <ball> I've gone from Savannah to cricket pitch.
01:02 *** Eythan has quit IRC
01:04 <ball> Hmm... thought I'd found a mainboard for that Athlon XP but alas, it's out of stock.
01:08 * ball sighs
01:10 <ball> Does boinc care much about the underlying OS?
01:11 <MTughan> For which application to download, yes.
01:12 <XioNYC> I've been a Mac user since 68000s were hot stuff. Apple's platform transitions from 68k to PPC was almost perfect (if you ignore the fact that the PPC emulation could not support FPU calls), but the PPC to x86 transition was not been as smooth - mostly because Jobs wanted to play God with His minions.
01:12 <ball> XioNYC: the 68k was a Thing of Beauty
01:12 <XioNYC> There: I've said my piece. I feel better.
01:12 <MTughan> It's been okay, but the Rosetta emulation is slow.
01:13 <ball> XioNYC: The arrogant man apparently also removed FireWire from the Aluminium MacBook
01:13 <XioNYC> Rosetta was the Netwon's handwriting recognition technology. Any x86 emulating a PowerPC will perform worse than a PowerPC emulating an x86.
01:13 <ball> "FireWire is dead!" he said.
01:13 <MTughan> ball: Yep. :(
01:14 <XioNYC> USB is for mice; FireWire is for Men.
01:14 <MTughan> My Aluminum MacBook has no Firewire.
01:14 <XioNYC> Screw the Arrogant Bastard, and long live the Quarda 950!
01:14 * ball has a Quadra 700 stashed.
01:15 *** Soul_keeper has joined #boinc
01:15 * XioNYC has a fully-functional Mac Plus stashed away for a rainy day.
01:15 <ball> Someone ran away with my SE
01:15 <ball> ...probably did me a favour
01:15 <XioNYC> Not if it was an SE/30 - you couldda Linux'ed or A/UX'ed it.
01:16 <XioNYC> .o0( I wonder if BOINC'll run on a Linux'ed IIcx... and when I'd have time to find out... )
01:16 <ball> XioNYC: we had three or four of those, but they died.
01:17 <XioNYC> Good times, those 68k days. The most ingenuity the Mac ever witnessed.
01:18 <XioNYC> * sigh *
01:18 * ball nods

02:33 <ball> (e.g. 25% while I'm using it, 75% when I'm not)?
02:33 <MTughan> That'd be too obvious. ;)

12:35 <PovAdct_w> hi ball
12:37 <ball> hello PovAdct_w
12:38 <ball> I'm trying to figure out how to launch boinc from the command line and have it use my WorldCommunityGrid account
12:38 <ball> (think that's what it's called)
12:39 <ball> Ah yes, that's it.
12:40 <PovAdct_w> never use boinc --attach_project; it's so confusing I don't know why it's there at all
12:40 <ball> Okay. What's the preferred procedure then?
12:40 <PovAdct_w> you should first start the client (if it's not already running!) with ./boinc --daemon (from the correct directory), then control it with boinccmd
12:43 <Romulus> Title: World Community Grid - Home (at www.worldcommunitygrid.org)
12:43 <PovAdct_w> will give your account key

12:45 <PovAdct_w> --get_project_status
12:46 <ball> okay. I /think/ that's working
12:51 <ball> I'll find out after a few days if it completes a work unit
12:51 <ball> I'll look in on it with top too.
12:51 <ball> I'm not sure how it decides whether this machine is busy though
12:51 <ball> ...perhaps it looks at loadavg or something.
12:52 <ball> PovAdct_w: many thanks for your help.

17:02 <MTughan> EPL is considered a free license by the FSF, but it's incompatible with the GPL.

17:08 <MTughan> Is the GPL compatible with the EPL, but not vice versa?

17:22 <jasong> Possibly naive question, but I don't understand how the world economy could lose value. If the world economy lost a certain amount of value, wouldn't that simply mean that things would be cheaper for a short time? Or are there countries that are becoming richer that offset the bad luck of the ones in the news?
17:23 <jasong> Mind you, I'm talking about actual value, not the changes having to do with inflation and deflation
17:23 <MTughan> I think the big thing that people have experienced is that the value of their posessions goes down.
17:23 <MTughan> Like home prices have plummeted.
17:23 <PovAddict> and if food price goes up, your money value goes down (you can buy less food with it)
17:23 <PovAddict> replace food with any other good or service
17:23 <jasong> Yes, but does that mean that the world in general has had a loss of assets?
17:24 <XioNYC> jasong: I think you're confusing availability of resources, goods, and services for the price (which is the de facto means for measuring the value of said)
17:24 <jasong> Okay, let's say everything on the planet were tracked and valued. Do you think the net worth of everything on the planet has gone up or down in the last few months?
17:25 <XioNYC> Since individuals, corporations, and governments are less willing to pay, the value (appearance, not intrinsic) decreases. Less demand, the lower the price.
17:25 <jasong> Not including untapped resources of course
17:25 <XioNYC> The lower the price, the lower the "value".
17:25 <XioNYC> 2Â¢
17:26 <XioNYC> Conversely, there's a great joke about how to explain inflation...
17:26 <jasong> listening
17:27 <XioNYC> You get married. Your spouse is 35 and weighs 60kg. Thirty years later, your spouse is 65 and weighs 75kg. So you have much more, but "worth" the same.

17:30 * XioNYC forgot that B is also a unit.

17:47 <FreeLarry58> humm PovAddict i think the third option one for me
17:48 <jasong> I know how to define Planck time. It's the time between when the light changes to green and the guy behind you honks his horn
17:48 <FreeLarry58> lol almost the guy behind faster
17:49 <MTughan> PovAddict: DA response.
17:49 * FreeLarry58 scratches head and thinks plank time something along lines of 10 to the minus 13 sec

18:05 <XioNYC> Interesting find Soul_keeper. I hope there'll be Linux drivers.
18:05 <Soul_keeper> :)
18:06 <Soul_keeper> intel just announced they'll be releasing the linux developer's kit for larrabee at the end of this year or early next year
18:11 <Soul_keeper> sounds like that could hit the ground running :)

18:44 <jasong> I'd just like to say that, when it comes to stem cell research, I think both major views are extremely nutty.
18:45 <jasong> It's neither a miracle cure, nor a deserving Christian cause
18:46 * jasong is sad that nobody seems to want to know why stem cell research rhetoric seems so silly
18:46 * jasong goes and pouts in a corner
18:47 <jasong> Wait, I'm web-surfing in a corner. How convenient
19:32 <jasong> OMG, the company's called Caustic Graphics. I'm guessing that their product's so good that they gave the company a lousy name to increase the chances they wouldn't have shipping delays on promised product
19:33 <Soul_keeper> they might go the way of bitboys
19:34 <jasong> Bitboys? What's that, a porn site?
19:34 <jasong> nm, forget I said that
19:37 <Soul_keeper> was another small graphics startup company that caused a big ruccus 4yrs ago or so
19:37 <Soul_keeper> they never got a product to market
19:37 <Soul_keeper> just kept delaying and got bought out or whatever
19:38 <PovAddict> sounds like Via
19:38 <Soul_keeper> apparently ati bought them out in 2006

22:41 <mchelen> is there a good way to benchmark cuda boinc?
22:43 <PovAddict> no, there isnt even a way for boinc to measure science app gpu usage...
22:44 *** Soul_keeper has quit IRC
22:44 <PovAddict> assume everything is impossible on cuda until shown otherwise... too young a platform still

23:49 <jasong> Hey, I've got an external hard drive on another computer that's refusing to let me change anything on it. I need an easy way to commit data Armageddon on that drive, just wipe it clean and start over.
23:50 <jasong> Also, I've got boinc on the other one, so if someone could point me in the right direction in terms of Google terms for remote command, that'd be great
23:51 <jasong> both are Linux machines, but this one is Ubuntu and the other is CentOS. After I do data Armageddon and a new backup, this one will be CentOS in short order
23:52 <jasong> I'll be up for the next 3 hours, rounded up, so say my name if you see this later and want to help :)
23:52 <jasong> Oh, sorry, data Armageddon on an external drive, and then there's an internal drive that's helping to crunch boinc
23:53 <XioNYC> What's the device: /dev/sda or somesuch?
23:55 <jasong> I'll check
23:56 <jasong> When I access it through the GUI, it's in /media/disk , I know that doesn't help, but I'm not sure how to find out the information
23:56 <XioNYC> Here
23:56 <XioNYC> damn return key got in the way...
23:57 <XioNYC> Here's what you need to do: Drop into a console shell and run `mount -l`. This should show you the device's name on the filesystem tree as well as where the device is mounted to.
23:57 *** zombie67 has quit IRC
23:57 <jasong> okay
23:58 <XioNYC> Once you have that information, you will need to unmount the drive (either by `umount /mount/point` or through the automagical hokey-pokey of your distro's HAL library).
23:59 <XioNYC> Only *then* will you be able to begin the "nuke all data" process.
