01:15 <Soul_keeper> :)

01:16 <efc> This ship will never jump again unless you get on those structural repairs, Soul_keeper.

01:16 <Soul_keeper> so does that mean i'm chief of engineering ?

01:17 <efc> I need my planes to fly.

01:17 <efc> Crew Chief Soul_keeper. I need my planes to fly.

01:18 <Soul_keeper> permission to speak freely....... we wouldn't have these bloody structural snafoo's if you'd stay clear of them blastid klingons sir !!

01:18 <efc> You have your orders Chief Keeper! Now get to it!

01:19 <Soul_keeper> aye aye

01:19 <efc> How did we get the only ship in the fleet that runs on KY? No matter, set coarse for the Wal-Mart system.

01:20 <Soul_keeper> can we stop at the   hooters nebula  ?

01:20 <efc> Aye-Aye, you're due some shore leave.

01:25 * MTughan --> bed

01:25 <Soul_keeper> but then again if they did that I might not open my front door for a month or two ....

01:25 <efc> I played Empire At War for a while. Not bad.

01:25 <Soul_keeper> MTughan, Good Luck

01:29 <MTughan> Hmm, that could be a BOINC bug... Just tried setting allowable memory to 150%. And it's using that.

01:29 <MTughan> I have 2048MB of RAM, it says preferences limit it to 3072MB now. O_O

01:30 <MTughan> Still reported as 2048MB to projects, which sucks because the only task that seems to be available needs 2284MB.

01:30 <Soul_keeper> odd

01:31 <MTughan> Oh well, it can wait.

01:31 <MTughan> ergZay: I'll send you the application(s) tomorrow.

11:16 <MTughan> Oh, nvm... Caused by a piece of code I had forgotten about. :)

11:20 <Soul_keeper> ha !

11:21 <Soul_keeper> there are no C++ problems,  there is no spoon !

11:21 <MTughan> Yeah, but I had what looked like a completely valid piece of code that the compiler was complaining about. Turns out it was completely valid, it just was set off by something else, but still pointed to the same line.

11:23 <Soul_keeper> good work

11:23 <MTughan> Thankye.

11:24 <MTughan> Always nice to be congratulated for looking like an ass.

11:24 <Soul_keeper> yeah i went to sleep and woke up and that Eee wcg wu was 1% farther

11:24 <MTughan> lol

11:25 <Soul_keeper> I found out the the new clean energy project benefits greatly from 64-bit

11:25 *** mweltin has joined #boinc

11:25 <MTughan> 'lo mw

11:26 <Soul_keeper> 8 to 9hrs on a 32-bit C2Q  3.3GHz with 12MB L2

11:26 <Soul_keeper> that's a sizeable difference, not sure about points tho

11:28 <mweltin> found a ton of old music I had.

11:28 <Soul_keeper> gm

11:28 <mweltin> much happier

11:28 <mweltin> it's like new music but better because I know I like.

11:28 <mweltin> elgono shared some cool stuff

11:30 <PovAddict> genre?

11:31 <Soul_keeper> gangsta rap ?

11:31 <mweltin> no

11:31 <mweltin> not sure what it was

11:31 <mweltin> electronic

11:31 <mweltin> but lots of vocals

11:32 <mweltin> so not very ambient, which is what I associate electronic music with.

11:38 <PovAddict> ambient is great as background for coding

11:39 <mweltin> yes

11:39 <Soul_keeper> I play megadeth for that :)

11:39 <MTughan> Daft Punk here. :)

11:39 <mweltin> I like the cruder and dorfmeister for coding.

11:53 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

11:53 <mweltin> morn' Z

11:58 <PovAddict> hey zombie67

11:58 <PovAddict> I wanted to ask you

11:58 <PovAddict> how do you see the situation with IBM?

11:58 <mweltin> hahaah PovAddict I asked that yesterday too.

11:58 <PovAddict> employees are last to know anything, even though they're usually also shareholders?

11:59 <mweltin> seems unfair.

11:59 <PovAddict> mweltin: my dad works at Sun too, but I want to know how the situation feels/looks like from another viewpoint :)

12:00 <mweltin> how does your dad feel about it?

12:00 <PovAddict> "I don't see myself working for IBM"

12:00 <mweltin> I'm curious to see what happens to mysql.

12:01 <PovAddict> and Java!

12:01 <mweltin> I dont' do much java

12:01 <PovAddict> IBM is a big user of Java, so I don't think it would *suffer* from this

12:01 <PovAddict> however IBM would likely kill the server hardware/software from Sun, since it's basically competition...

12:01 <mweltin> IBM was the biggest employer in the town I grew up in.  It has been changing ever since the early 80's.

12:02 <PovAddict> IBM is giant even here

12:02 <mweltin> IBM was pushing "green" servers last time I looked.

12:02 <PovAddict> green or not, I don't see IBM pushing eg. Solaris

12:02 <mweltin> sun makes some good hardware, maybe IBM is just buying that.

12:03 <mweltin> with luck they will replace IRIX with solaris

12:03 <mweltin> I never got my head around irix, but in my defense I only had to deal with it once and that was long ago.

12:10 <PovAddict> I know most of the floors in the building are actually theirs

12:10 <PovAddict> unlike eg. Sun

12:11 *** DerMeister has joined #boinc

12:12 <PovAddict> Sun pays for *their* logo to be on the top of the building, but the building isn't theirs, far from it

12:13 <ergZay> well this is annoying, i cant even tell that i changed the binary to my own self compiled one on leiden classical

12:13 <ergZay> the change is so small

12:13 <ergZay> not even sure if its going faster or slower

12:14 <ergZay> i think its going slightly slower though

12:27 <MTughan> Daft punk.

12:28 <ergZay> punk where the singers are daft?

12:28 <MTughan> "A negative review in Melody Maker subsequently dubbed the music 'a bunch of daft punk.' Instead of dismissing the review, Bangalter and de Homem-Christo found it to be amusing."

12:28 <Soul_keeper> ahhh

12:29 <ergZay> my music choice i odder

12:29 <ergZay> i listen to jpop and eurotrance/dance

14:12 <Soul_keeper> it was mostly 18 to 26yr old nerds,  don't think they had a single hot chick

14:18 <Soul_keeper> excellent

14:18 <Soul_keeper> I once was at home depot looking for something, looked over and an employee was sleeping inbetween the boxes

14:19 <Soul_keeper> I woke him up asked him for help,  he said he was gonna go sleep in the bathroom because nobody would bother him there

15:42 <ergZay> well this is interesting

15:42 <ergZay> im at school in the cafeteria

15:42 <ergZay> and there is this singer singing here

15:42 <ergZay> named John rush, he plays anything you request him to play

15:42 <ergZay> currently hes playing pink flyod very well

15:43 <ergZay> floyd*

15:46 <mweltin> ask him to play some grant green

15:46 <mweltin> if he plays that well is a very good musician

15:46 <mweltin> if he says who? kick him in the nuts and walk away.

15:48 <ergZay> he has two huge binders full of songs available

15:48 <ergZay> ill take a look

15:49 <PovAddict> make him play Never Gonna Give You Up

15:49 <MTughan> xD

15:49 <ergZay> hasnt heard of grant green

15:50 <mweltin> hahahaha tool

15:50 <ergZay> you can send him an email to have him learn a song

15:50 <ergZay> and he will add it

15:50 <PovAddict> self-pwned... how do I get the damn song off my head now?

15:50 <mweltin> not many people have

15:50 <MTughan> I haven't heard of Grant Green either.

15:50 <ergZay> i havent heard of grant green

15:50 <mweltin> he is an old guitarist, dead if memory servers.

15:50 <ergZay> he doesn tjust play guitar songs

15:50 <ergZay> hes got a analog/digital guitar

15:51 <ergZay> so he plays sax, piano, etc

15:51 <mweltin> grant green is a jazz guitarist, I have tried to learn some of his songs and I just don't have the chops for it.

15:51 <ergZay> with self accompaniments

15:52 <mweltin> he does a version of sookie sookie that is over the top.

15:52 <MTughan> That's what she said!

15:52 <MTughan> Or he...

15:52 <PovAddict> hmm jazz... weird timings made it hard to play?

15:53 <mweltin> no it's just that his skill level is so far beyond what I could ever hope to play at this point.

15:54 <mweltin> some of this music is on pandora but not the good stuff.

18:11 <PovAddict> if you're asking that question, you're safe

18:11 <PovAddict> April 1, conficker will change a bit the way it works

18:11 <PovAddict> if you don't already have conficker on your machines, you have no reason to care :)

18:12 <PovAddict> and if you do... you should be desinfecting that machine *now*

18:12 <FreeLarry58> lol yeah well got most updates was just wondering if should place modem in standby for a bit

18:12 <FreeLarry58> anything that gave me indication of infection i cleaned long ago

18:13 <FreeLarry58> but haven't checked the linux machines as havent found online virus checker like trendmicro that works on it

18:13 * FreeLarry58 thinks the linux machine should be fairly safe

18:14 <PovAddict> lol for sure

18:14 * KathrynM thinks the machines at work will probably blow up

18:14 <FreeLarry58> already had one blowup at my place or w/*- (and hands KathrynM a bar of lava soap for those fingers) ;0

18:15 <KathrynM> whoops

18:15 <KathrynM> it's early

18:15 <FreeLarry58> already been scrubing mine for earlier

18:16 <FreeLarry58> its saturday for me KathrynM so forgiven

18:16 <KathrynM> Hump day and April Fool's day all at the same time.

18:16 <FreeLarry58> yeah

18:17 <FreeLarry58> thats right your on other side of dateline

18:17 <xcamel> back again

18:18 <xcamel> nice but chilly walk

18:18 <PovAddict> I already warned my dad to ignore any news from US sites tomorrow

18:19 <mweltin> you should have left off the tomorrow part, it would be just as valid.

18:19 <FreeLarry58> thanks PovAddict guess i'll turn off modem for a bit

18:19 <PovAddict> lol mweltin

18:20 <PovAddict> mweltin: last year ThinkGeek had some interesting new products on April 1

18:20 <FreeLarry58> and happy aprils fools to all if i forget to turn it back on

18:20 <PovAddict> (fake ones of course)

18:20 <PovAddict> USB Pregnancy Test

18:20 <PovAddict> Betamax to HD-DVD converter (the two "dead" video formats)

18:21 * FreeLarry58 still has a few betamax tapes in drawers here

18:21 <mweltin> I'll bet somewhere someone wants the betamax -> hd-dvd.

18:21 <FreeLarry58> don't think thier still good tho - got soaked during one of my moves

18:21 <mweltin> I rest my case

18:21 <mweltin> why keep them ?

18:21 <FreeLarry58> keep forgetting to throw box in trash

18:22 <PovAddict> betamax lost against VHS

18:22 <PovAddict> HD-DVD lost against blu-ray

18:22 <PovAddict> if somebody still has betamax tapes, why on earth would he want to convert them to another dead format?

18:22 <FreeLarry58> lol yeah when i was about your age PovAddict

18:22 <mweltin> and FreeLarry58 lost against entropy

18:23 <FreeLarry58> going for enthalpy mweltin
