11:17 <mweltin> I wanted to ask you and Pov something.
11:18 <MTughan> lol... Big Ben stopped at 11:59 last night.
11:18 <mweltin> so you know I'm not running a project right now, but I was wondering if you guys felt a boinc specific lib would be a good idea. What I had in mind was ..........
11:18 <ELGono> lol
11:18 <mweltin> wait big ben runs windows?
11:19 <MTughan> Apparently not, because if it was infected, it would've stopped at 12:01.
11:19 <mweltin> good point
11:19 <ELGono> well maybe clock was wrong ;)
11:19 <MTughan> lol... And of course, look at the bottom of the article...
11:19 <mweltin> or it has a 1 min lag between the clock and the computer running it.
11:19 <MTughan> "In case you haven't guessed it, APRIL FOOLS!!!"

11:21 <ELGono> i think the date was choosen well for conficker update
11:21 <ELGono> hard to trust any news on that date
11:21 <MTughan> Ouch... Not an April Fools joke: Nvidia could threaten Intel's Larrabee with cross-licensing agreements.
11:25 <MTughan> I read a couple days ago too that Conficker won't actually do much on April 1st, it's all just hype.

11:33 <MTughan> Haha! I think someone found the Google prank for today: http://www.google.com/intl/en/landing/chrome/cadie/
11:33 <MTughan> Okay, shoot.
11:34 <mweltin> how useful do you think it would be for a "canned" search algorithm project. You know the way boinc source comes with the uppercase example to get you started.
11:34 <MTughan> What do you mean, canned?
11:35 <mweltin> well I was thinking about a bunch of libs to create a search algorithm and them wrap them up into a boinc project.
11:36 <mweltin> the basic idea is if a researcher has a search they want to perform
11:36 <MTughan> They can submit work to your project to have it done?
11:37 <mweltin> well thats another route.
11:37 <mweltin> I was thinking more of an abstraction layer, where they would run the project, but 90% of the code would be done.
11:37 <mweltin> like the upper case example.
11:37 *** wdsmia_w has quit IRC

14:18 <yoyo[RKN]> &wx sxf
14:18 <mweltin> One obstacle for the adoption of boinc (as I see it) is the ramp up time. I think the docs say it takes a 6months to a year to get a project off the ground.
14:19 <Romulus> yoyo[RKN]: Temperature: 54Â°F / 12Â°C | Humidity: 62% | Pressure: 30.21in / 1023hPa | Conditions: Clear | Wind Direction: ENE | Wind Speed: 8mph / 13km/h | Updated: 7:50 PM CEST; Clear. High:59 ° F.; Clear. Low:41 ° F.; Clear. High:59 ° F.; Clear. Low:37 ° F.; Clear. High:68 ° F.; Clear. Low:44 ° F.;
14:19 <mweltin> My idea is to make something similar to the uppercase project that comes with the boinc source.
14:19 <yoyo[RKN]> mweltin : I do not think so
14:20 <mweltin> the basic idea is to have a project in a "jar".
14:20 <PovAddict> mweltin: BOINC already has a way to run a single command and get a fully-working project running uppercase, all daemons set up, application version added, workunits being generated
14:20 <mweltin> yoyo you don't think what? The ramp up time estimate is correct?
14:20 <PovAddict> and it makes things *harder* for new admins!
14:20 <yoyo[RKN]> no
14:20 <PovAddict> they get that fully working project and have no idea how it works or how to modify it for their own needs
14:21 <yoyo[RKN]> some weeks in my spare time to get a boinc server with uppercase running
14:21 <PovAddict> if, instead, there was a tutorial on how to get a project to the point where it's processing uppercase, then the admin will use that as learning process, and will then already know how to do it again with his own app
14:21 <mweltin> yes and for all intensive purposes it's kind of worthless.
14:21 <yoyo[RKN]> and some additional weeks and PovAddict's help to get the first legacy app running
14:22 <mweltin> well my thought was to target search algorithms.
14:22 <yoyo[RKN]> I used uppercase to learn the server stuff, wu templates, results, daemons, wu parameter and so on
14:22 <PovAddict> how do people learn to program?
14:22 <mweltin> as sort of an abstraction layer.
14:22 <mweltin> that is waht I would try to abstract away.
14:23 <mweltin> wu generators, validators, msyql tables
14:23 <mweltin> they shouldn't have to worry about that.
14:23 <PovAddict> admins should never need to touch a mysql table by hand
14:24 <yoyo[RKN]> oh, really ?
14:24 <yoyo[RKN]> just changed the priority some minutes ago there
14:24 <mweltin> true, although sometimes you need to add tables.
14:24 <PovAddict> making them have to setup the DB server isn't unreasonable though... after all, it *is* the performance bottleneck, there is no way around that, admins have to babysit the DB to make the project run fast...
14:24 <mweltin> take a genetic algorithm for example.
14:25 <mweltin> if a researcher wanted to use one, it would be nice to have a ga lib.
14:25 <mweltin> I'm proposing to extend a ga lib to include a bunch of boinc specific stuff.
14:25 <PovAddict> mweltin: do it and *sell* it...
14:26 <mweltin> no
14:26 <mweltin> just contribute it.
14:26 <mweltin> payback for the help I get here.
14:26 <PovAddict> that works too :)
14:26 <PovAddict> if you take boinc as a base platform, higher-level things are "sellable"...
14:26 <PovAddict> think IBM's Eclipse
14:26 <PovAddict> it's free
14:26 <PovAddict> it's a platform, and an IDE running on it
14:26 <mweltin> I got uppercase working in no time.
14:27 <PovAddict> then, there is IBM Rational Software Architect, a much more complex IDE, also running on the Eclipse platform
14:27 <DerMeister> One big problem of BOINC server is that it's strongly coupled with mysql. You can't any other (probably superior) dmbs.
14:27 <DerMeister> *dbms
14:27 <mweltin> but the tsp project took a long time to get running
14:27 <mweltin> and it was never what I really wanted.
14:27 <PovAddict> and Software Architect costs a few thousand dollars :D
14:28 <PovAddict> DerMeister: have you ever seen the BOINC DB schema?
14:28 <DerMeister> PovAddict: Yes and I had even a BOINC server running on postgres instead of mysql
14:28 <DerMeister> Was quit painful, though...
14:28 <PovAddict> normalization proponents would kill themselves
14:28 <mweltin> so I'm thinking somehow package a "search algorithm" with all the hooks into boinc, so a PI can get up and running and the only thing they really need to think about is the representation of their problem, and not all the boinc coding.
14:29 <PovAddict> DerMeister: wow, do you still have the code around? :)
14:29 <mweltin> they would still need a server admin to some degree, but the time to a working project should be drastically reduced.

15:57 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: Really, the 4770 has been pushed back to May?
15:58 <Soul_keeper> that's what rumours are saying, but of course everything has been a rumour
15:59 <Soul_keeper> they had reviews testing the prototype in febuary
15:59 <Soul_keeper> the consensus then was a march release
15:59 <MTughan> Could be having problems with 40nm production.
16:00 <Soul_keeper> I don't believe that, but I guess it's a good excuse
16:00 <MTughan> When is the 4970 supposed to launch? I think that's a 40nm card too.
16:00 <PovAddict> ./configure --disable-libraries doesn't give any error about that being a problem
16:00 <PovAddict> but then the client doesn't link because it has no libboinc
16:00 <Soul_keeper> MTughan, probably summer
16:01 <Soul_keeper> the 4770 is supposed to be the first to "test the waters on 40nm"
16:01 <MTughan> What's Nvidia working on for 40nm?
16:01 <Soul_keeper> which prolly means a month or two to get the yeilds stable
16:02 <Soul_keeper> nvidia is like a year or more behind
16:02 <MTughan> Same thing that happened with 55nm?
16:02 <Soul_keeper> so I would guess early next year .... possibly for xmas but dunno
16:02 <Soul_keeper> yeah
16:03 <MTughan> Yeah, because the 38xx series of cards were 55nm, while Nvidia was still using 65nm. The original GT200 cards are 65nm, right?
16:03 <Soul_keeper> yeah
16:04 <Soul_keeper> my 3870 is 55nm and I bought it over a year ago
16:04 <Soul_keeper> came out november 2007 from amd
16:04 <MTughan> Yeah, the first 55nm part from Nvidia was the 9800GTX+.
16:05 <Soul_keeper> "HD 4890 Launch Date To 2nd April" but that's just an overclocked 4870 on 55nm
16:06 <Soul_keeper> "GeForce GTX 275 on Apr 9th" 55nm also, but not fully confirmed
16:06 <Soul_keeper> so we get nothing new till fall it would seem
16:08 <Soul_keeper> maybe i'll just drive down to best buy and pickup a gts250 or something fun

16:14 <Soul_keeper> figures they'd want to release the 260 dollar card a good month before the 99 dollar card
16:14 <Soul_keeper> gotta milk the market
16:19 <Soul_keeper> MTughan, this is the link I had my hopes up for, the day after my bday http://vr-zone.com/articles/radeon-hd-4890-rv790--hd-4770-rv740-launch-on-apr-6th/6664.html?doc=6664
16:20 <MTughan> That was posted a week ago.
16:20 *** BadBarbarian has joined #boinc
16:21 <MTughan> 'lo BB
16:22 <Soul_keeper> well I was reading a forum post where someone got their hands on a production sample 4890 the bios is dated in the future: apr 2nd 2009
16:22 <Soul_keeper> so that release makes sense
16:25 <Soul_keeper> I don't want that power hungry card tho
16:25 <MTughan> You could underclock it.
16:25 <Soul_keeper> maybe
16:26 <PovAddict> apparently clock and power usage isn't linear
16:26 <Soul_keeper> but I wouldn't have opencl for another few months anyways
16:26 <Soul_keeper> and by that time 40nm would be out
16:26 <PovAddict> you could double power usage by increasing the clock a little bit...
16:26 <Soul_keeper> yeah lotsa factors
16:26 <PovAddict> and similar in the other direction, you can get half power usage without having to go to half clock
16:26 <MTughan> My 4870 can be clocked down to 500/450 Core/Mem. Stock is 750/900.
16:27 <MTughan> At least, through ATI's tools. Other stuff can maybe go lower.
16:31 <Soul_keeper> maybe the best plan is a gts 250 now, then wait for highend 40nm ati parts

16:51 <MTughan> Ah, that reminds me...
16:51 <MTughan> There was a bit of an uproar from Lou Dobbs a couple days ago about John Kerry's proposed reinstatement of a ban on semi-auto rifles.
16:52 <MTughan> My question is, who needs a semi-auto rifle? Not for hunting, not for discreet protection.
16:52 <Soul_keeper> I need one.
16:52 <MTughan> For what?
16:52 <Soul_keeper> I need it to shoot John Kerry in the Face when his liberal ass comes wandering into my house telling me what I can and cannot do.

17:13 <Soul_keeper> my bot is in another channel :)
17:14 <noren_> new in boinc i just registered with the einstien proj how much time does it take to start initially
17:14 <MTughan> You attach to Einstein, your client downloads work, and you're set.
17:14 <xcamel> New Delhi?
17:15 <xcamel> einstein has been very slow today.
17:15 <MTughan> The site seemed to load fast enough for me.
17:15 <noren_> how much does it need to download inistially, i m running a 64bit linux system
17:16 <MTughan> And as of 16 minutes ago, they had 61K+ tasks unsent.
17:16 <MTughan> noren_: Your computer will request a certain amount of work. The server will send back how many tasks it'll take to fill that much time.
17:17 <noren_> i am running this boinc manager gui , how can i run this in background..
17:17 <MTughan> Just close the manager. It'll minimize to the system bar.
17:18 <MTughan> Double click the BOINC icon down there to reopen the manager.
17:18 <PovAddict> MTughan: BOINC Manager on Linux doesn't support the tray
17:18 <MTughan> PovAddict: No, but I'm assuming Windows.
17:18 <PovAddict> "i m running a 64bit linux system"
17:18 <MTughan> Oh, sorry...
17:19 <MTughan> I missed that.
17:19 <PovAddict> noren_: how did you install boinc?
17:19 <xcamel> it will do the same thing as windows in KDE or Gnome.
17:19 <noren_> well is therre any other way, my be running from konsole
17:20 <xcamel> just minimize it to the taskbar
17:20 <noren_> sudo apt-get install boinc-client boinc-manager
17:20 <MTughan> What distro then?
17:20 <MTughan> Ubuntu, Debian?
17:20 <PovAddict> noren_: then it's already running in the background and will auto-start on boot
17:21 <noren_> but i m very new t this, my system is up most of the time so thought of getting boinc this might help everyone
17:21 <noren_> kubuntu
17:22 <noren_> in gui transfer list there are almost 20 files of 4mb each does it need to have all of them to start
17:23 <PovAddict> noren_: I think so
17:23 <noren_> and then there is something call skygrid with 171mb thats really huge
17:24 <PovAddict> that file is probably shared between all tasks
17:24 <PovAddict> so you'll only need to download it once, not for every new task you get
17:25 <noren_> ohh ok

19:00 <KathrynM> alas, I don't have one

21:22 <zombie67> will iTunes work with non-apple MP3 players?
21:23 <MTughan> Yes, and no. Yes in that it will manage music, no in that it cannot interface with any MP3 player except for iPods.
21:25 <PovAddict> the majority of players have their own also-proprietary way to add music, so it's unlikely iTunes would support them
21:26 <PovAddict> but iTunes doesn't even support "copy mp3 files into USB drive and done" players
21:26 <MTughan> I think Windows Media Player does, but yeah.
21:26 <PovAddict> Windows Media Player has plugins to support other players
21:26 <PovAddict> many commercial players come with a WMP plugin instead of their own music management application
