04:23 <CoderForLife> It's all about you, FreeLarry
04:23 <FreeLarry> lol
04:23 <FreeLarry> and you CoderForLife and MTughan -- there joined up two more i think
04:24 <CoderForLife> I'm just here to provide entertainment
04:25 <FreeLarry> nope your here to keep us in line
04:25 * FreeLarry just has a box of lava soap for those dirty fingers that use nasty four letter words
04:28 <FreeLarry> take a look at prime test units and let me know what you think http://www.primegrid.com/orig/result.php?resultid=96596141
04:37 *** sigmund has quit IRC
04:45 <CoderForLife> I think that's a lot of numbers =)

05:05 <FreeLarry> yeah just a few numbers - 64 bit comp. have a great friday - after w/*-
05:05 <CoderForLife> enjoy the moment
05:05 <MTughan> Heh.
05:05 <FreeLarry> yah only tuesday for me when i get up
05:05 <FreeLarry> ;/
05:06 <FreeLarry> do like the credit granted by those units but a lot of variable time depending on machines
05:06 <FreeLarry> 2 to 6 hrs
05:07 <MTughan> Time shouldn't matter unless you're a micromanager.
05:07 <FreeLarry> lol not too much but i do clear out the machines frequently
05:08 <MTughan> How's the Vista machine doing?
05:08 <FreeLarry> older machines longer newer machines much faster but isn't that the way its supposed to be
05:08 <FreeLarry> been stable since the new mb put in
05:08 <FreeLarry> hasn't bsd once
05:08 <MTughan> Nice.
05:09 <FreeLarry> and using 1 gig less memory too - haven't figured out what caused that
05:09 <MTughan> My comp BSOD'd on me just a couple hours ago. Only the second time Win7 has done that. Not sure what it was this time.

06:21 <KathrynM> How's my favorite gas giant
06:21 <TheGasGiant> *wdsmia I know the feeling
06:21 <TheGasGiant> all well...just lamenting the hard to get work on MW
06:24 <TheGasGiant> &ping

06:27 <hawmps> ttyl..
06:27 <TheGasGiant> how's my favorite businessman?
06:27 <hawmps> good enough..
06:28 <TheGasGiant> business not turned down too much yet?
06:28 <hawmps> not too bad at all.
06:28 <hawmps> you?
06:28 <Romulus> hmm... you are upper fayl, hawmps
06:29 <TheGasGiant> all well to date...have enough work for 2 yrs
06:29 <hawmps> that works..
06:29 <TheGasGiant> just need to start thinking where the next job is coming from shortly
06:31 <hawmps> hopefully be out of this mess before 2 years are up
06:32 <TheGasGiant> yup...it's a real mess
06:35 <hawmps> I
06:36 <hawmps> I've seen worse, and we got out of that OK
06:37 <TheGasGiant> on a lighter note...how's your crunching going?
06:37 <hawmps> over 13M now
06:38 <ELGono> moo TGG & jay
06:39 <TheGasGiant> heya ELG
06:40 <ELGono> hope to hit 2.25M here this week
06:40 <ELGono> reentered seti with some cuda & SSE3 optimized
06:40 <TheGasGiant> should hit 5M in a couple of days
06:40 <ELGono> rac still incresing ;)
06:41 <TheGasGiant> almost 2m on MW thanks to the ATI card
06:41 <ELGono> damn
06:41 <TheGasGiant> oh yeah
06:41 <ELGono> need to visit friend with 48xx series card
06:41 <TheGasGiant> the ATI card is AMAZING on MW
06:41 <hawmps> it's making it so nobody else can get work....
06:41 <TheGasGiant> just need to get work now...getting hard to get since everyone is starting to use them
06:42 <TheGasGiant> lol...yeah
06:42 <hawmps> which sucks.
06:42 <ELGono> my deal is ... he gets my projector once a month for movie night, and i get his ati working mw for me ;)
06:42 <TheGasGiant> I've had to use an update script to get boinc to try and get work and overcome the exponential back off
06:42 <TheGasGiant> great deal ELG
06:43 <hawmps> it didn't work on mine - required too much babysitting.
06:43 <ELGono> yea thats what i'm worrying about, too
06:43 <ELGono> will need some attention on mw
06:43 <ELGono> and client
06:44 <TheGasGiant> the update script needs to be smarter....I'm not smart enough to write a good one...just a clunky update every x minutes job
06:44 <hawmps> bad enough workfetch has never really been fixed.
06:44 <TheGasGiant> try
06:44 <ELGono> at least i figured out to run seti as i want it to ;)
06:44 <TheGasGiant> true
06:44 <hawmps> brb
06:44 <ELGono> btw tgg
06:45 <TheGasGiant> ?
06:45 <ELGono> i finished my amp ;)
06:45 <TheGasGiant> how long in the making?
06:45 <ELGono> here some more pix of internals http://matrix.fem.tu-ilmenau.de/~elgono/pg/?Qwd=./SuSy-GC&Qiv=thumbs&Qis=M
06:45 <ELGono> 3 month
06:46 <ELGono> actually 5 days of work
06:46 <ELGono> 7 days of planning
06:46 <ELGono> 2x 90W susy (super symmetric) balanced amplifier
06:47 <ELGono> using chipamps with regulated powersupply and just point2point circuits
06:48 <TheGasGiant> sound any good?
06:48 <TheGasGiant> get any hum?
06:49 <ELGono> best i ever heard so far from my experiences
06:49 <TheGasGiant> well done...must be pleasing to have done it
06:49 <ELGono> competing with real good classA ampfifiers
06:49 <ELGono> i'm still not really satisfied
06:50 <TheGasGiant> a true perfectionist!
06:50 <ELGono> included in internal channel seperated unbalanced to balanced line driver
06:50 <ELGono> wich sounds worse than d-i boxes using transformer for unbalanced to balanced conversion
06:51 <ELGono> but i still have some spare tubes
06:51 <TheGasGiant> you've lost me with the unbalanced to balanced talk
06:51 <ELGono> ;)
06:51 <ELGono> well there is still room for improvements
06:52 <ELGono> and some space left in case
06:52 <TheGasGiant> another month of planning?
06:52 <ELGono> phun thing is... next to this amplifier box runs the same indigo ... converting audio signals D/A
06:52 <ELGono> still running irix 5.3 ;)
06:52 <ELGono> nice twins
06:54 <TheGasGiant> sounds like phun...
06:55 <ELGono> well my 21" eizo screen died
06:55 <TheGasGiant> the CRT?
06:55 <ELGono> need anothe crt with 13W3 connector
06:55 <ELGono> for SGI
06:55 <ELGono> yep
06:56 <TheGasGiant> I remember when you got that
06:56 <TheGasGiant> you were pretty stoked
06:56 <ELGono> 1600x1200@100Hz on matrox card (real sharp picture)
06:56 <TheGasGiant> ahead of your time when you got it...2nd hand right?
06:57 <ELGono> yep we bought 23 of them ;)
06:57 <TheGasGiant> lol
06:57 <ELGono> and as i got the 8x vga splitter to test them all i had the right to choose the best one ;)
06:58 <TheGasGiant> sweet
06:58 <ELGono> it will really hurt to get rid of this eizo
06:59 <ELGono> even physically .... 46kg and 92 steps on stairs down
06:59 <TheGasGiant> ugh...a long haul
07:00 <ELGono> my back still remembers the day we got 23 of these on the trailor
07:00 <ELGono> and off again hehe
07:00 <TheGasGiant> eek
07:01 <TheGasGiant> hope you had some help
07:01 <ELGono> well it was the move that day ... when i lifted my screen on my desk
07:02 <ELGono> after that i used all 4 extremities for movement
07:02 <ELGono> for a week or so
07:02 <ELGono> hehe
07:02 <TheGasGiant> I'm surprised the desk didn't collapse
07:02 <ELGono> it did
07:02 <ELGono> some days later
07:03 <TheGasGiant> lol
07:03 <ELGono> remember when i set up my quadro screen desk?
07:03 <TheGasGiant> how many screens...
07:03 <TheGasGiant> k
07:03 <ELGono> with 3x 21" and 1x 19"
07:03 <TheGasGiant> nope...can't recall that one
07:03 <ELGono> freely configureable ... 1-3 desk win / 1-2 desk linux and 1 irix
07:04 <ELGono> all with one keyboard and mouse
07:04 <ELGono> that was really cool
07:04 <ELGono> until the desk collabsed
07:04 <TheGasGiant> d'oh
07:05 <ELGono> LCDs have some advantages hehe
07:05 <TheGasGiant> lol....
07:07 <TheGasGiant> I'm still using a 17" LCD I got 3 or 4 years ago (I think)
07:07 <TheGasGiant> at home that is
07:07 <TheGasGiant> at w#$^, I've got 2 * 22" widescreens
07:08 <ELGono> heidi bought a nice 19" last year and is not using it
07:08 <ELGono> hope to get the acer laptop of her parents back from repair .... she'll change laptops with them
07:09 <ELGono> mathlab is sucking too much resources
07:09 <TheGasGiant> sweet, what are you using mathlab for?
07:10 <TheGasGiant> The first F1 is on this weekend....could hear the practice sessions from my home
07:10 <ELGono> heidi is... she's writing her final thesis at uni (yea she overtook me hehe)
07:11 <TheGasGiant> lol
07:11 <ELGono> she implementing driving and gearshifting for a 3d driving simulator
07:11 <ELGono> using 6 projectors in a 135° screen wall
07:12 <ELGono> and 256 speaker for audio
07:12 <TheGasGiant> holy cow
07:12 <TheGasGiant> that'd tax most cpu's
07:12 <ELGono> hehe whole system has 16 maschines
07:12 <ELGono> 9 dual xeons for audio
07:13 <TheGasGiant> 256 speakers are needed why?
07:13 <ELGono> 2 for simulation 2 for virtual world and 4 for rendering
07:14 <ELGono> must correct
07:14 <ELGono> 192 speakers
07:14 <ELGono> wave field synthesis
07:15 <ELGono> you are surrounded by speakers ... and each speaker has it's own amplifier .... you can map speakers to groups
07:15 <ELGono> to create wave fields
07:15 <ELGono> so the "sweet spot" is as big as you want
07:15 <TheGasGiant> ahhh!
07:15 <ELGono> we also have a cinema in ilmenau with that technique
07:16 <ELGono> was developed here in ilmenau at fraunhofer institute
07:16 <ELGono> called iosono
07:16 <hawmps> computer controlled sound shaping
07:16 <TheGasGiant> sounds impressive overall
07:16 <Romulus> Title: IOSONO Technology (at www.iosono.de)
07:17 <hawmps> loosely based on THX, right?
07:17 <ELGono> nope another approach
07:17 <hawmps> ah..
07:17 <ELGono> but there are converter for dolby and thx
07:17 <ELGono> they are used in the cinema
07:17 <TheGasGiant> ahh...you've given me that link before!
07:18 <ELGono> they do it there with 8 pc's
07:18 <ELGono> creating 192 channels from 5.1 / 7.1 / 10.1 dolby/thx
07:18 <ELGono> realtime
07:19 <TheGasGiant> sounds expensive!
07:19 <ELGono> they also developed a system to create iosono wave fields with metadate from camera-set
07:19 <TheGasGiant> and impressive
07:19 <TheGasGiant> love to hear it in action
07:19 <ELGono> and tried to impress hollywood
07:20 <ELGono> prof. brandenburg was over there
07:20 <ELGono> chief of institute here in ilmenau .... he also had his hands on development of mp3 codec
07:21 <ELGono> and now they combined that iosono sound system with and 3D projection system
07:21 <TheGasGiant> sounds like a centre of excellence
07:22 <ELGono> wich is pretty fancy
07:22 <TheGasGiant> very
07:22 <ELGono> but implementing something is !§$%§
07:22 <ELGono> :)
07:23 <TheGasGiant> good stuff!
07:23 <ELGono> mathlab, simulink and a dozend of other softwares ... linux/windows system mix
07:23 <TheGasGiant> time for me to hit the sack

11:55 <MTughan> Win7 RC to be released in May.
11:57 <Soul_keeper> i thought they already released that thing ...
11:57 <MTughan> They released Win7 Beta. This is the RC.
11:59 <Soul_keeper> k
11:59 <Soul_keeper> any good boinc news lately ?
11:59 <MTughan> Wow... Intel sued Nvidia over licensing agreements, saying the agreement doesn't allow Nvidia to build chipsets for processors with memory controllers (Nehalem).
12:00 <MTughan> Nvidia has countersued to revoke that agreement, and possible Intel's agreement with Nvidia for GPUs.
12:00 <Soul_keeper> yeah i told you that like a week or two ago
12:00 <MTughan> The second part?
12:00 <Soul_keeper> i believe so
12:00 <Soul_keeper> intel is bossing everyone around now
12:01 <MTughan> Yes, but did you see the part that Nvidia countersued?
12:01 <Soul_keeper> maybe not
12:01 <MTughan> You couldn't've, the press release was only yesterday.
12:01 <MTughan> They've done it though.

12:02 *** jackygrahamez has joined #boinc
12:02 <Soul_keeper> yeah guess i didn't hear that one
12:04 <jackygrahamez> hi I asked what seemed like a simple question in the cygwin chanel and I probably opened a can of worms
12:05 <MTughan> Related to Cygwin, or a philosophical question?
12:05 <jackygrahamez> oh the licenses under GPLv2 and how I am going to make the source available
12:05 <jackygrahamez> according to them I need to include the source in my distribution
12:06 <jackygrahamez> So I asked about whether we can just have a file offering a download from a server
12:06 *** [B^S]renemayer has joined #boinc
12:07 <MTughan> You'll need to include a readme file with the distribution, but yes, you can have the source just available on the server.
12:07 <MTughan> Cygwin code is GPL'd, not LGPL'd?
12:07 <jackygrahamez> ok I like that interpretation much more and I'm sure the project volunteers are happy with that
12:08 <jackygrahamez> by server, do you think it should be my own or the cygwin mirrors?
12:08 <MTughan> Doesn't matter, but you'll have to include a note in the readme saying where it is.
12:08 <jackygrahamez> great
12:09 <MTughan> Preferably, it should be at the place where it's being developed.
12:09 <jackygrahamez> I'll just ignore what that guy had to say because he is not opperating a distributed computing project
12:09 <MTughan> Well, I've downloaded just the binaries of lots of GPL software.
12:09 <jackygrahamez> and may not comprehend the implications of that interpretation
12:10 <MTughan> Plus, the license just says you have to make the source available. Plenty of projects do what I just said, because it's convenient for both users and devs.
12:10 *** jackygrahamez has quit IRC
12:11 <PovAddict> MTughan: making source available isn't enough; it also has to be under GPL-compatible terms
12:12 <MTughan> Yeah, I know... Shoot, I just assumed that.
12:13 <Romulus> Title: GNU General Public License - Free Software Foundation (at www.fsf.org)
12:18 <PovAddict> unrar probably can't be compiled with cygwin and distributed, for example
12:19 <MTughan> I'll try and catch him when he joins next.
12:20 <Romulus> Title: Systems Administrator for the Electronic Frontier Foundation (mission district, San Francisco, CA) - Free Software Foundation (at www.fsf.org)

12:21 <PovAddict> science apps seem like a bit of a gray area, since they run quietly in the background... are crunchers considered "users" of such apps? how would they be notified of the license? should science apps bundle source code? (seems like a waste) etc
12:21 <MTughan> I contacted them about Synecdoche and the APSL... Never got a response.
12:21 <Soul_keeper> you don't have to bundle anything
12:22 <MTughan> Sent March 7.
12:22 <Soul_keeper> you just have to have the source code somewhere on your website if you are hosting the binaries and claim GPL license
12:23 <Soul_keeper> so any potential user of your science apps, should they desire, be able to obtain the source code
12:23 <PovAddict> devil in details

12:37 <Soul_keeper> http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=14690 FAIL!
12:38 <MTughan> jackygrahamez: One thing I neglected that PovAddict reminded me of.
12:38 <MTughan> You have to make the source available, but it also has to be under a GPL-compatible license.
12:39 <jackygrahamez> source...which source the cygwin?
12:40 <MTughan> No, the program source.
12:40 <jackygrahamez> the cygwin is GLPv2
12:40 <jackygrahamez> the scientific app?
12:40 <Romulus> I guess the scientific app is not fully developed, jackygrahamez
12:40 <MTughan> What program do you link against Cygwin?
12:40 <MTughan> Yeah, the science app.
12:40 <jackygrahamez> GROMACS is GPL too
12:40 <jackygrahamez> as well
12:40 <MTughan> Is that the only one you're using Cygwin for?
12:42 <jackygrahamez> I have to double check the other apps, but all the code is open...I know that does not mean they are GPL
12:42 <MTughan> Doesn't mean they have to be GPL, just GPL compatible.
12:42 <MTughan> Hold on, I'll find you a list.

12:50 <mweltin> how lazy am I? I just started a VM so I could use a mysql gui tool to add a user to my database.
12:51 <MTughan> Is the DB on the VM?
12:51 <mweltin> no
12:51 <mweltin> the mysql tools I have don't work in linux.
12:51 <mweltin> well they say they do with QT but they dont' you need gnome
12:52 <mweltin> and I'm not going to go through that install.
12:52 <MTughan> Well, I don't know that I'd call booting a VM to use a GUI tool lazy.
12:53 <MTughan> You had to set up the VM in the first place.
12:53 <MTughan> You're just striving for convenience.
12:53 <mweltin> true
12:53 <jackygrahamez> everything I distrubute is GPL
12:53 <MTughan> jackygrahamez: All right, you're good then. ;)
12:53 <mweltin> I feel beter now MTughan
12:53 <mweltin> you should go into psychology
12:55 <jackygrahamez> People can download them on their own AutoDock, GROMACS, Quantum Espresso and CP2K. There websites contain licenses saying GPL. I should probably include a readme file to give links to these sites.
12:55 <MTughan> Or include links to the sites on your site.
12:55 <jackygrahamez> we can do both

13:13 <MTughan> Ah, a beta WU. Okay.

15:25 <MTughan> F***ing finally...
15:27 <Soul_keeper> did you catch the bit about the president of kronos group being an nvidia employee ?
15:27 <MTughan> "Previously, looking at things like Folding@home, ATI GPU computing performance seems to be behind Nvidia. That probably reflects the fact that their GPU computing solution is probably a couple of generations behind ours."
15:27 <MTughan> I'd bet that the Folding app doesn't use the GPU fully...
15:27 <MTughan> And no, I didn't.
15:27 <Soul_keeper> this would be impressive, i'm looking at it from the point of view that opencl itself would be advanced more
15:28 <Soul_keeper> can't port something to something that doesn't fully exist yet
15:28 <PovAddict> "It should be noted that jumping off tall structures has never killed anyone"
15:28 <MTughan> How tall?
15:28 <PovAddict> "it is hitting the hard stuff at the bottom of said structures that usually causes the problem..."
15:28 <MTughan> Ha.

16:00 <CoderForLife> whew! that grass mowing here takes so long
16:01 <FreeLarry> and as you age it seems to get longer - from experience
16:01 <CoderForLife> about as long as sorting all the first class mail these days
16:01 <wdsmia_w> mowing lol snow tomarrow
16:01 <Soul_keeper> that's why you have to enjoy it, like hank hill
16:01 <FreeLarry> lol no thats fast - but the bulk mail and parcels take some time
16:02 <CoderForLife> I can barely get the lawn mower turned around in the front yard before the grass is all cut
16:02 <FreeLarry> possible here in am to wdsmia

20:33 <MTughan> How far in advance do they set the names?
20:33 <PovAddict> seriously
20:33 <PovAddict> 9.04 will be about web 2.0: blurring the line between desktop apps and web apps
20:33 <PovAddict> 9.10 will be, among other things, about cloud computing (Amazon EC2-related stuff)
20:41 <jasong> Unless I have the ability to encrypt my files before they're put in the cloud, it's a bad idea. Not that I do anything important online, it's just this cloud stuff is a major privacy problem
20:41 <jasong> errr, has a privacy problem
20:41 <PovAddict> it won't automatically put things on the cloud
20:41 <PovAddict> it will provide tools for administrators using Ubuntu Server to build their own cloud infrastructures
20:42 <Soul_keeper> cloud is all part of the corporate plan to rent you resources
20:43 <PovAddict> anyway you have 6-7 months till it gets released
