11:33 <MTughan> It'll send an email back to the address you gave it, if you gave it one.

11:35 <ries> MTughan: yes I did....

11:35 <ries> on my other computer worldcommunitygrid runs just fine

11:35 <MTughan> Because BOINC doesn't store the password, but another string of characters that uniquely identifies you to the server.

11:36 <ries> I am not much of a rice guy.. but currently it trying to figure out how to make a super rice :)

11:36 <ries> can boinc not tell me what my email address was during registration?

11:37 <MTughan> Doesn't seem so.

11:37 <axxum> hello all

11:37 <axxum> doae anybody know if boinc is down?

11:50 <MTughan> Like I said, they look at things... A little bit differently.

11:52 <mweltin> no kidding

11:53 <mweltin> btw I'm looking for new music recommendations, so if anything comes to mind let me know.

11:53 *** [B^S]renemayer has quit IRC

11:54 <mweltin> I've been trying to explore stuff on pandora but they have a very limited selection of stuff.   I have a bunch of stations that seems to all pick from the same pool of music.

11:54 <MTughan> What kind of music?

11:54 <mweltin> instrumentals

11:54 <MTughan> I've got stuff from rock/pop, hip-hop, metal, electronic, and a couple outliers.

11:55 <mweltin> I usually listen to jazz,  but I'm in mood to try to expand my music experience.

11:56 <MTughan> I've been liking Daft Punk lately. They're an electronic/dance group.

11:56 <Soul_keeper> you like "pink" huh ?

11:57 <mweltin> I don't dislike Pink

11:57 <MTughan> The fascination will pass in a couple weeks. Then I'll go back to my full library, with just the occasional song from them.

11:58 <ELGono> madlib is some kind of good adress for hip/hop jazz flavour

12:00 <ELGono> mweltin : look out for recording of The Cinematic Orchestra - Live in the royal albert hall

12:00 <ELGono> maybe you like it

12:00 <ELGono> i did

12:00 <mweltin> ELGono: ok

12:01 <ELGono> electronic influenced, but still some good old instrumentals

12:01 <ELGono> and nice voices

15:02 <MTughan_> Ah, he timed it.

15:02 <yoyo[RKN]> it has an impact only in phase 2

15:03 <MTughan_> I definitely need more memory...

15:03 <MTughan_> I've been finding 2GB isn't enough for a lot of stuff I do anyway.

15:04 <yoyo[RKN]> lol

15:04 <MTughan_> I think the chipset supports 8GB, but 4GB RAM sticks are rare and expensive, especially the SDRAM type.

15:04 <MTughan_> SODIMM*

15:04 *** mweltin is now known as mw_away

15:05 <MTughan_> So a 2x2GB combination would probably be the best value.

15:05 <MTughan_> Oh well, I can still crunch others...

15:08 <ergZay> for leiden

15:08 <MTughan_> Not yet. I've got a Java assignment I've got to do first, and then I can probably work on it tonight.

15:09 <ergZay> ok

15:09 *** mchelen has joined #boinc

15:09 <ergZay> im tring to find optimized apps for other projects but i cant seem to find any besides seti@home

15:09 *** KathrynM has quit IRC

15:09 <MTughan_> For PPC OS X?

15:09 <ergZay> for any OS

15:09 <ergZay> or system

15:10 <MTughan_> You'll usually find optimized apps at smaller projects.

15:10 <ergZay> i could build my own

15:10 <ergZay> but that could get messy

15:10 <MTughan_> Milkyway has many other optimized apps, but it's short on work ATM.

15:10 <ergZay> ah im doing milkyway stuff right now

15:11 <MTughan_> My GPU's doing what work it can on the project.

15:11 <ergZay> mostly pouring through leiden classical apps on this intel core 2 duo on 10.5

15:11 <ergZay> those run through really fast

15:11 <ergZay> an hour per workunit

15:11 <MTughan_> I'm getting fairly good credits from yoyo@home's ecm application. Just compiled all three version for OS X about a week and a half ago for him.

15:12 <MTughan_> I'm having to run WCG alongside it though for those times when ecm takes too much memory to run two of them in my 2GB.

15:12 <ergZay> havent heard of that project

15:12 <ergZay> whats it do

15:13 <MTughan_> yoyo[RKN]?

15:13 <ergZay> yoyo@home

15:13 <yoyo[RKN]> ?

15:13 <MTughan_> No, yoyo[RKN] is the admin. ;)

15:13 <MTughan_> I know what ecm does, but what does the yoyo@home project do in general?

15:14 <yoyo[RKN]> box in the middle describes shortly all subapps

15:14 <ergZay> whats the ecm applicatoin

15:14 <Romulus> hmm... The C2D is 24/7 i game on the P4 no more than an hour or two a day, MTughan_

15:14 <ergZay> from newegg

15:14 <ergZay> yea

15:14 <yoyo[RKN]> yoyo@home wrapps existing apps into the boinc world

15:14 <MTughan_> DDR2-667 or DDR3-1066?

15:15 <ergZay> former

15:15 <MTughan_> Yeah, that's cheaper and older.

15:15 <MTughan_> The new MacBooks use DDR3.

15:15 <yoyo[RKN]> at the beginning my goal was only to learn how the boinc server works

15:16 <ergZay> ah k

15:16 <ergZay> which does it run specifically?

15:16 <ergZay> @MTughan_

15:16 *** siofwolves has joined #boinc

15:16 *** sigmund_ has joined #boinc

15:16 *** wdsmia_ has joined #boinc

15:16 *** PieSpyRom has joined #boinc

15:16 *** LinBot has joined #boinc

15:16 <MTughan_> The new MacBooks? They run DDR3-1066.

15:16 <hawmps> 6.6.20 out

15:17 <MTughan_> >_>

15:17 <MTughan_> Yeah, the only 8GB kit on Newegg is from Corsair, at $700USD

15:18 <ergZay> dang

15:18 <ergZay> newegg tends to be dirt cheap

15:18 <MTughan_> While I can get a 2x2GB kit for about $60.

15:18 <ergZay> thats odd

15:18 <ergZay> thats hogwash...

15:18 <Soul_keeper> i want a 2x2 kit as well ...

15:18 <MTughan_> Now, I'm in Canada... So do they have the same things on the Canadian version?

15:19 <ergZay> MTughan_: what do you mean?

15:19 <MTughan_> Same 8GB kit for $868CDN.

15:19 <ergZay> ill look

15:19 <MTughan_> And the 2x2GB kits for anywhere from $75-105CDN.

15:20 <MTughan_> I'm gonna take a look at NCIX...

15:21 <MTughan_> NCIX is even more expensive. Gah.

15:21 <MTughan_> I knew there was a reason I went with DDR2 RAM in my desktop...

15:22 <ergZay> they dont sell the 8GB on the US newegg

15:22 <ergZay> looks like

15:22 <MTughan_>

15:22 <Romulus> <> (at

15:23 <ergZay> yea 700

15:23 <ergZay> ah thatas why

15:23 <ergZay> its out of stock

15:23 <MTughan_> Ah, I missed that.

15:23 <ergZay> prices tend to be out of date on out of stock stuff

15:24 <MTughan_> Looks like Newegg is still the best price on 4GB kits.

15:24 <MTughan_> DDR3 desktop RAM is fairly plentiful now because of Core i7, but it's still scarce on notebooks.

15:24 <ergZay> btw if you get on their newsletter they send out newsletter only discounts for random products every week or so

15:24 <ergZay> technically spam

15:24 <MTughan_> I've never bought from Newegg.

15:25 <ergZay> but i saw a $90 1TB hard drive there the other day

15:25 <MTughan_> Most of my stuff is bought from Canada Computers.

15:25 <Soul_keeper> the newsletter just links you to this site         changes daily

15:25 <Romulus> Title: - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! (at

15:26 <ergZay> i buy everything from newegg personally

15:26 <ergZay> as they are reliable and i rarely see prices cheaper, and if they are, they arent by much

15:26 <Soul_keeper> me too, i get screwed everytime i buy locally

15:26 <MTughan_> I'd buy from them, but they don't have anything in stock.

15:27 <ergZay> because they sell everything so cheap :P

15:27 <MTughan_> With Canada Computers though, I can save on shipping.

15:27 <MTughan_> Because there's a store not too far from here.

15:27 <ergZay> i havent bought anything from newegg thats been DoA either

15:27 <ergZay> so thats nice

15:28 <ergZay> biggest hard drive on there

15:28 <Romulus> <> (at

15:28 <MTughan_> 2TB WD Green?

15:29 <MTughan_> Yep.

15:29 <ergZay> odd they dont tell the RPM though

15:29 <ergZay> usually do

15:29 <MTughan_> It's variable.

15:29 <MTughan_> It's usually between 5400 and 7200rpm, but most people peg it closer to 5400rpm.

15:30 <MTughan_> Does it to save power. Hence the "Green" moniker.

15:31 <ergZay> when i trade performance for greeness is when the world freezes over

15:31 <MTughan_> Yeah, I'll stick with their Black series of drives, which are performance oriented.

15:32 <ergZay> when in reality anything any western country does is not going to make an inch of difference for so called global warming

15:32 <MTughan_> Blue is halfway in between.

15:32 <ergZay> so no need to try to be green

15:32 <MTughan_> I think in this case, green doesn't refer to the environment, but money. Money for the manu and money for the consumer in saved power.

15:33 <MTughan_> Considering all the SUVs westerners drive around, saving computer power doesn't mean jack sh*t.

15:33 <ergZay> yep

15:33 <ergZay> btw does the place you buy from sell mostly OEM or retail?

15:34 <MTughan_> Depends on the product. Most of the OSes I've seen have been OEM.

15:35 <ergZay> MTughan_: btw where were those milkyway optimized apps you said there were

15:36 <MTughan_> For which OS?

15:36 <ergZay> OS X

15:36 <ergZay> intel

15:37 <ergZay> or anything

15:37 <ergZay> only system i dont have is CUDA

15:37 <MTughan_>

15:37 <Romulus> <> (at

15:40 <ergZay> MTughan_: jedirock = you?

15:40 <MTughan_> Yes.

15:40 <ergZay> ah k

15:43 <ergZay> MTughan_: does it auto detect SSE types available?

15:43 <MTughan_> No. The SSE types are hardcoded.

15:43 <ergZay> hard coded for what

15:44 <ergZay> C2D?

15:45 <MTughan_> Altivec on PPC, SSE(1-3) on i686, SSE(1-3) and SSSE3 on x86_64.

15:47 <ergZay> what do you mean by 1-3 so it auto detects then

15:48 <MTughan_> No, it doesn't autodetect. The application has binaries for all three architectures in there. When it's run, OS X chooses the best one for your system, which is usually your native arch.

15:49 <ergZay> what about SSE4.1?

15:49 <MTughan_> Not supported by the current version of GCC.

15:50 <jasong> What's the Linux command structure to make commandline output both go to a file and output on the screen?

15:52 <jasong> nm, I'll just use tail

15:52 <jasong> lol, can you tell I'm a noobie programmer?

15:54 <ergZay> tee it

15:54 <ergZay> jasong: man tee

15:54 <ergZay> really easy to use

15:55 <yoyo[RKN]> use tee jasong

15:56 <ergZay> example: echo "hi" | tee file

15:56 <ergZay> will print hi to screen and put it in a file named "file"

16:04 <Soul_keeper> and MTughan sse 4.1 is supported in the latest gcc

16:04 *** mw_away is now known as mweltin

16:05 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

16:06 <Soul_keeper> infact  4.2 and 5 are also supported

16:06 <ergZay> MTughan: when you get back, what are the gcc flags to use SSE instructions

16:07 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: Yes, but the latest version from Apple is 4.0.1. There is a 4.2 build included, but I haven't tried building with it.

16:07 <MTughan> ergZay: -msse -msse2 -msse3 -mfpmath=sse

16:07 <MTughan> What I use for i686.

16:08 <Soul_keeper> yeah the 4.2.x tree won't support it

16:08 <ergZay> k thx

16:08 <ergZay> i wana try building the leiden source optimized

16:08 <Soul_keeper> 4.3.x  is the cutting edge

16:08 <MTughan> K.

16:08 <ergZay> anyone wana help me on this one though?

16:08 <ergZay> ld: cycle in dylib re-exports with /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.dylib

16:08 <ergZay> collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

16:08 <ergZay> havent seen one like that before

16:08 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: Yep, but remember that OS X uses the Mach-O binary format, not ELF or whatever Windows uses.

16:09 <MTughan> ergZay: What are you using to link against libGL?

16:09 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

16:09 <Soul_keeper> yeah windows is gay ...

16:09 <ergZay> thats the line

16:09 <MTughan> I've also got a request from the NQueens guy to build their OS X application.

16:10 <MTughan> Try that.

16:10 <ergZay> works

16:10 <ergZay> whats with all those libs

16:11 <ergZay> and are we getting everything by excluding those

16:11 <MTughan> System, Carbon, Cocoa, GLUT, and OpenGL?

16:12 <ergZay> no i mean

16:12 <ergZay> -lGLU -lGL -lXmu -lXt -lXext -lXi -lSM -lICE -lX11

16:12 <ergZay> unneeded?

16:12 <MTughan> I'll play around with those tonight, see what's going on. I'll also replace those precompiled versions of boinc_graphics_api, boinc_api, and boinc with my own compiled versions.

16:12 <MTughan> No, they're all contained within the OpenGL framework. :P

16:12 <ergZay> ahhh

16:12 <ergZay> ive compiled tons of software but never worked to get something to compile before lol

16:12 <ergZay> so this is new for me

16:12 <MTughan> So it's cleaner and more portable just to use the framework.

16:13 <ergZay> whats the comment character for makefiles?

16:28 <ergZay> oh well thats fun, i compiled the leiden app with the sse opts but if i turn on -mssse3 and -m64 it errors saying the libraries arent built in 64bit

16:29 <ergZay> which i can see why you have to rebuild them

16:29 <MTughan> Yeah, I have my own customized copies.

16:29 <MTughan> No telling if they're builds are compatible with 10.3.9 either.

16:29 <MTughan> their*

16:29 <ergZay> na im trying for my C2D at the moment

16:30 <ergZay> ill leave the 10.3.9 to you

16:30 <MTughan> BTW, try "-arch i386" and "-arch x86_64" instead of -m32 or -m64.

16:30 <ergZay> out of curiosity have you checked what alex does for his intel mac apps?

16:30 <ergZay> for seti@home

16:30 <MTughan> Alex?

16:30 <MTughan> I've never compiled any S@H apps.

16:32 <ergZay> "Many thanks to Alex Kan for the OSX optimized Multi Beam apps."

16:33 <MTughan> No, I don't know what he uses.

16:33 <ergZay> ive heard that they run much faster than the PC apps

16:33 <MTughan> He may have done some code tweaks. I usually don't tweak the code.

16:37 <ergZay> is there somewhere the app_info.xml syntax is listed

16:37 <ergZay> i havent found any on the wiki and i kind of guess may way through how to write or modify them

16:39 <MTughan> Check the app_info from my application at MW. You can just modify that.

16:40 <ergZay> or better yet somehow extract what the "default" app_info.xml is for the project

16:40 <ergZay> after which i can just modify it

16:41 <MTughan> That info would be in client_state.xml.

16:41 <ergZay> that had several lines that i didnt recognize that wrent in seti@home app_info.xml

17:54 <MTughan> Happens from time to time.

17:54 <MTughan> Gonna start testing the NQueens app within an hour.

17:54 <ergZay> i havent checked though, how do i know these are working accurately

17:54 <ergZay> i dont wana turn in bad data

17:55 <MTughan> Only way is to either find a test WU to check against, or check if the server validates the WU.

18:02 <ergZay> dont have a ppc machine either

18:02 <ergZay> you said

18:02 <MTughan> Sure, if you'd like too.

18:02 <ergZay> im not doing anything until 7 PM eastern time so sure

18:03 <ergZay> and not doing much then

18:03 <ergZay> either upload em somewhere or dcc em

18:03 <MTughan> I just want to let it run through one WU on my machine to make sure it'll actually work, and then I can give you a copy with an appropriate app_info.

18:03 <ergZay> k

18:04 <ergZay> ill run it on my dual processor G5 machine and my old G4 laptop

18:04 <ergZay> and this C2D if you want as well

18:04 <MTughan> Sure, I can give you both if you'd like.

18:05 <ergZay> how long you think its going to take on the one WU?

18:06 <ergZay> just so i know when to check back on IRC

18:06 <MTughan> Not sure. I'm just finishing off a WU that I had downloaded when I attached my Mac to NQueens. I'll test afterwards.

18:10 <Soul_keeper> ergZay, not really, unless you're a multi-million dollar paycheck and they custom build you one

18:10 <ergZay> RISC is still better than CISC though

18:10 <Soul_keeper> IBM can beat anything if you pay them enough

18:11 <ergZay> MTughan: so around when should i be expecting yo to send it to me? tonight? in an hour? tomorrow?

18:12 <ergZay> rough estimate is fine

18:12 <MTughan> No idea. Depends on how long my application will take, and I can't begin to estimate that for another 30 minutes.

23:05 <ergZay> 4GB of memory

23:05 <ergZay> computer paused some apps

23:09 <Soul_keeper> check your project settings

23:31 <ergZay> Soul_keeper: wasnt boinc

23:31 <ergZay> was my general apps

23:32 <ergZay> World of warcraft, safari with 20 tabs open and x-chat

23:32 <ergZay> with too much text loaded

23:32 <Soul_keeper> then that would depend on the app itself ...

23:32 <Soul_keeper> ahhh windows, that explains it

23:32 <ergZay> mac os x

23:32 <ergZay> never seen it before

23:32 <ergZay> world of warcraft only uses 1.2GB of ram
