04:40 <CoderForLife> ah

04:40 <CoderForLife> I have one

04:40 <efc> but I didn't find any at all, of any kind

04:41 <efc> I'll give you my bailout money for it

04:51 <efc> I got a great idea for a solar powered clothes dryer, I only need $3 billion to fund R&D

04:51 <CoderForLife> what's the cloudy day backup plan?

04:52 <CoderForLife> I got your cost of materials covered -

04:53 <efc> If you're a small business I'll sub it out to you

04:53 <CoderForLife> for $3B, I can be most anything

04:57 <CoderForLife> I ordered an Arduino last night

04:57 <Romulus> <> (at

05:01 <efc> Hmm. I bought a poster at a museum a while ago. Its conveniently sized at 24.5" x 36"

05:02 <efc> Cool.. what do you do with it?

05:07 <CoderForLife> I am going to re-do my alarm from CMOS to software

05:09 <CoderForLife> I designed an alarm to tell me when a pump was running too long, all in CMOS using Visual Breadboard.  After I get done buying the parts, I could get the Arduino and do it in Code

05:11 <efc> That would be nice

05:11 <efc> Ours is hooked to a light bulb when its running

05:11 <efc> It helps use more electricity

05:12 <CoderForLife> sure

05:13 <CoderForLife> if my pump runs more than about 35 seconds, it's stuck and may run for many hours more

05:13 <CoderForLife> I want to know if it's been running for more than, say, 2 minutes

05:15 <CoderForLife> bbiab - Mother Nature wants to see me

05:50 <jasong> Is there a way to buy an xp code without having to obtain a cd?  I'm not talking about pirating or anything illegal, I just don't want to have to go to the store or wait for the mail to come in 3-5 days.

05:50 <jasong> I already have a copy of xp

05:50 <Soul_keeper> yes, call MS

05:51 <Soul_keeper> they'll sale you another "seat license" or whatever they  call it ...

17:47 <jasong> Not to piss people off, but this global recession causes deflation, and deflation is bad for people with debt.  But what about people without debt?  I mean, sure, the stock market has taken a hit, but isn't it possible that 85 cents in about a year will be worth more than a dollar is now.  I'm not saying that particular example will be correct, but I have NO debt and am wondering if my overall earning potential is going to increase

17:50 <jasong> I knew a married couple about 5 years back that moved into a trailer home after they got married so they could pay cash for a house a few years down the road.  How much extra money do you think they had to throw around because they were willing to live significantly below their means for a few years?

17:51 <jackygrahamez_> Hi jasong, I agree with you, and the media driven by the people who are loosing are spreading a lot of negativity...aside from having an upside-down morgage...I'm doing ok

17:51 <jasong> The world exists on a debt-based economy, am I the only one that thinks that's an insane way to run a planet?

17:52 <jasong> oh, hi jacky

17:52 <jackygrahamez_> then a gain a lot of people have lost jobs

17:52 <jasong> That's true, but a lot of them would be able to survive if they paid cash for everything they owned

17:53 <jasong> Not 100%, of course, but...

17:53 <jasong> If I'm not mistaken, when people buy homes, a lot of the time they pay more in interest than the actual value of the house

17:54 <jackygrahamez_> and its also true we need rich people for various reasons...charitiable giving is down...if the government was responsible for all philanthropy...I don't think the result would be worse

17:55 <jackygrahamez_> I mean I think the result would be worse

17:56 <jackygrahamez_> anyhow it looks like a good time to start investing, but I won't know if I'm right for another 6 months

17:57 <jasong> Yeah, I invested in AMD, the stock is at about a third of what I paid for it, but I'm not selling.  I just wish I'd waited an extra 3-5 months before making the purchase

17:58 <jasong> If AMD can survive the recession, I think they're going to fly like a bird

17:59 <jackygrahamez_> I've been playing a fantasy stock game on facebook. They give you $50K dolars USD, 50K Canadian, 50K UK. nice way to watch the ups and downs

17:59 <jackygrahamez_> how about NVIDIA?

18:00 <jasong> I don't keep good track of NVIDIA.  Basically, I like to invest in companies that look solid but are going through hard times

18:00 <jasong> AMD fits that description in my mind

18:01 <jackygrahamez_> The stock game I play with low cap stocks that sold down the previous day and sell them once I get at least $500 profits

18:01 <jasong> nice, how's your fantasy portfolio looking?

18:01 <wdsmia> re-hi

18:02 <jackygrahamez_> of course that is monopoly money. My real life stuff I don't have time to play with

18:02 <jasong> Is it possible for me to see your stuff, jacky?

18:02 <jasong> Like with a linkie?

18:02 <jasong> not the real stuff, the game

19:36 <KathrynM> I know

19:36 <KathrynM> of course

19:36 <CoderOnTheCouch> I'm exhausted - negotiating with SAP is like wreslting the devil himself

19:36 <KathrynM> I always do that to my coworker.  He goes "I have a question."  Before he can ask, I say "42".

19:36 <xcamel> that's an understatement..

19:38 <xcamel> rr link at work is going bad again..

19:38 <xcamel> hawmps gone

19:40 <KathrynM> "Projects that are over worked no longer fill to "Connect Every X" + "Extra Work", but are supposed to fill only to "Connect Every X"."

19:40 <KathrynM> so what's the point of having those two things split then?

19:40 <wdsmia> see what bad karma gets you Jay

19:43 <xcamel> it's been dropping since the weekend.

19:43 <KathrynM> Using little words, someone tell me how to get a cache of work?  Pretend I'm a complete noob and I know nothing about client_state.xml (which it's looking like I'm going to have to edit).  This is a good case where we should be thinking about people who are new to BOINC.

19:43 <KathrynM> my last email to boinc_alpha

19:44 <xcamel> best is to suspend all projects except the one you want work for....

19:44 <xcamel> that will usually force it.

19:44 <KathrynM> or go back to 6.4.5 which actually worked

19:45 <KathrynM> this is just stupid

19:45 <KathrynM> brb, alarm going off

19:45 <wdsmia> I always wanted to see a manual min cache level

19:45 <xcamel> then as you get work for that one, suspend it , and it will get work for other projects if needed

19:46 <xcamel> it's a pain, but it works.

19:46 <wdsmia> not when running a GPU

19:54 <PovAddict> I have never upgraded past 6.2 because of all this mess

19:55 <xcamel> bbl..

19:56 <wdsmia> 6.2 had problems

19:57 <wdsmia> just not as bad lol

20:07 <PovAddict> BOINC has always had problems :)

20:08 <MTughan> Except when it didn't exist?

20:09 * wdsmia still uses 5.10 except for the gpu boxes

20:09 <MTughan> I use 6.2.18 or 6.2.19. Works well enough at least, but it does do some strange behaviour at times.

20:10 <wdsmia> lol seti 1 had a load of problems before Boinc

20:18 <KathrynM> BOINC 6 has been a nightmare from the start

20:24 <Soul_keeper> the code seems messy to me, like they are adding features so fast they have no time to stop and just do a bugfix release or two

20:26 <PovAddict> Soul_keeper: KathrynM reported a serious work fetch bug in 6.4, and 6.4 got released the following day

20:26 <PovAddict> do you know why?

20:26 *** Eythan has quit IRC

20:26 <PovAddict> it was so it got released the same day as an nVidia press release

22:03 <Soul_keeper> what kind of points increase might one get in WCG going from 32 to 64-bit ?

22:04 <ball> Soul_keeper: "some"

22:05 <Soul_keeper> ball, did you do it ?

22:05 <Soul_keeper> i'm locked in a tight race that ends at the end of the month, just evaluating some options

22:05 <ball> Soul_keeper: I don't have any 64-bit hardware.

22:06 <Soul_keeper> i hate losing ...

22:07 <ball> Soul_keeper: get used to it. Welcome to middle age.

22:07 <Soul_keeper> i'm battling for 12th place ...

22:07 <Soul_keeper> that's not asking too much

22:08 <ball> I'm battling just to get one work unit in!

22:08 <ball> My hardware's really not up to the job.

22:09 <ball> Need more cores, more MHz etc.

22:12 <Soul_keeper> run milkyway or something, they got small wu's

22:13 * ball nods

22:13 <ball> That feels artificial though.

22:13 <ball> My laptop's been working on a WCG biggie for a very, very long time.

22:14 <Soul_keeper> yeah wcg is unoptimized, wu's take forever

22:14 <PovAddict> huh

22:14 <Soul_keeper> i've had them go over the deadline several times on my laptop

22:14 <PovAddict> by that measure CPDN is unoptimized...

22:14 <ball> I should limit myself to fifteen irc channels at once.

22:15 <Soul_keeper> well you can't prove to me they have sse2 or sse3 ...

22:15 <PovAddict> &grab ball

22:15 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.

22:15 <Soul_keeper> just luck of the drawl, maybe a subproject has sse maybe it don't

22:15 <ball> Soul_keeper: what has sse2 or sse3?

22:15 * ball is confused

22:15 <Soul_keeper> :)

22:15 <ball> oh, right, the apps.

22:15 <Soul_keeper> well then rock away with mmx !

22:16 <MTughan> ball: Well, I'm in 13 channels... 14's been my max.

22:16 <MTughan> I need to limit FF tabs though... 100 is too many.

22:16 <PovAddict> 5 here

22:16 <PovAddict> 100?!

22:16 <Soul_keeper> i regularly idle in 7

22:16 <PovAddict> currently: 6 channels

22:16 <PovAddict> one is #idlerpg

22:16 <PovAddict> other three are quiet...

22:16 <MTughan> Yeah, 100 tabs is the max I've seen...

22:17 <MTughan> 68 open ATM.

22:17 <PovAddict> and I don't even have my browser running atm

22:17 <PovAddict> MTughan: firefox?

22:17 <MTughan> Yes.

22:17 <ball> Soul_keeper: 3DNow! ? :-)

22:17 <PovAddict> see if there is any addon with hierarchical tabs

22:17 <PovAddict> :)

22:17 <Soul_keeper> ball, there you go

22:17 <MTughan> Naw, I'm find.

22:17 <MTughan> fine*

22:18 <PovAddict> one tab per "category", then webpage tabs inside

22:18 <MTughan> Firefox is taking 750MB of RAM though.

22:18 <ball> MTughan: memory leak?

22:18 <PovAddict> heh

22:18 <MTughan> 749,912KB to be exact.

22:18 <MTughan> ball: I don't think so. Just lots of websites.

22:18 <PovAddict> only 750MB?

22:18 <ball> is it creeping upwards?

22:18 <MTughan> Nope.

22:18 <ball> It does on my wife's machine

22:18 <MTughan> Running FF3.1b3.

23:42 <Soul_keeper> you running a pentium 2 ?

23:42 <ball> Soul_keeper: That was on a Celeron Northwood

23:42 <Soul_keeper> ahhh yeah those things were worthless

23:42 <ball> I was about 45% into the work unit too.

23:43 <Soul_keeper> starved for cache

23:43 <ball> Right, but should that cause a computation error in boinc?

23:43 <ball> (in a boinc application?)

23:44 <PovAddict> no

23:45 <ball> That's what I thought.

23:45 <ball> I retired that machine from boinc.

23:47 <ball> ...and the other, that was just *way* too slow.

23:47 <ball> So this is my last boinc machine.

23:48 <ball> I'm trying to wring one work unit out of it and then I'll retire it too.
