01:32 <jasong> Does anyone here understand how US tobacco taxes work?  LIke, is it a percentage, like per dollar, or per packet of cigarettes, or...?

01:33 <jasong> I've read that the tax has tripled, but I'm not sure how it's calculated

01:39 <efc> Hmm, not sure, I'd guess its a flat tax per cig

02:04 <efc> New Legislation Would Federalize Cybersecurity

02:04 <efc> oops

02:04 <efc> just wanted that last line

02:08 *** [B^S]renemayer has joined #boinc

02:21 <efc> oh jasong, the cigar tax is 40 cents each

02:32 <jasong> Any Atom experts on here?

02:33 <efc> oh jasong, the cigar tax is 40 cents each

02:33 <efc> what about the Atom? A lot of us looked at it at one time or another.

02:33 <jasong> lol, yeah, I'm not a smoker, it's just an article I'm reading isn't giving me info about the actual tobacco tax amounts, or how it's calculated

02:34 <jasong> I have voluntarily placed a 150 watt(160 watt absolute upper limit) on my desktops so that I can sleep comfortably in my room.  Because of this, I'm curious about low watt processors

02:35 <jasong> I  don't pay for electricity(my dad says it's so cheap here that I'm not to worry about it) but heat is a concern since I sleep with my computers nearby

02:36 * jasong added that last word at the last second before pressing enter

02:36 <jasong> ;)

02:36 <jasong> thanks, I'll look

02:36 <MTughan_> jasong: What were you wanting to know?

02:36 *** MTughan_ is now known as MTughan

02:37 <efc> jasong: I think that so far, the Atom has not been all that great in performance/watt, especially in an overall system

02:37 <efc> But if you don't need the performance, then its good

02:37 <efc> Last I looked, the chipsets available stunk and took way more power than the CPUs

02:37 <jasong> Well, I'm wondering if I could get some good crunching out of Atoms without breaking the bank

02:37 <MTughan> zombie67 has first hand experience. He bought an Atom for crunching.

02:37 <jasong> What did he think about it?

02:38 <MTughan> Dunno. I typed his name there to flash him. ;)

02:38 <jasong> lol, thanks

02:40 <jasong> Oh my God, this is so annoying, the winebrowser command opens up Firefox.  What the hell?

02:40 <MTughan> Here's zombie's Atom: http://boincstats.com/stats/boinc_host_graph.php?pr=bo&id=5158557

02:40 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/cauqor> (at boincstats.com)

02:40 <jasong> thanks

02:43 <efc> Dunno if they ever released some good chipsets for it

02:44 <MTughan> Acer is rumoured to be coming out with an Ion based computer soon.

02:45 <MTughan> April 8.

02:54 <jasong> thanks, I'll look into it :)

06:28 *** noren has joined #boinc

06:29 <noren> hi all, yestearday i installed boinc on 64bit ubuntu system, it downloaded the project but did not compute anything wat is the prob any one ??

06:32 <noren> 02-Apr-2009 16:01:06 [---] [error] GUI RPC bind failed: 98 << this is the error wen i try from konsole

06:35 *** noren has quit IRC

06:45 <PovAddict> meh

06:45 <PovAddict> I've been feeling light-headed since yesterday afternoon

06:45 <PovAddict> prolly medication side effects?

06:46 <hawmps> 'lo

06:48 *** noren has joined #boinc

06:49 <noren> need help in running boinc on 64bit ubuntu

06:49 <PovAddict> noren: looks like you were starting boinc_client - don't, it's already runninf

06:49 <PovAddict> starts on boot

06:50 <noren> hi PovAddict : yestarday after all download it suddenly stoped. no computation at all

06:50 <noren> do i need 32 bit lib run run them

06:51 <PovAddict> to control it (for example attach a project), use boinccmd (command line) or boincmgr (graphical, needs X)

06:51 <PovAddict> for many projects you may need 32bit libs yes

06:51 <noren> yesatardy i attached it to einstien project and it downloaded some 20 files from the server

06:52 <noren> i installed boinc from repos wont the 32lib will be installed automatically

06:52 <PovAddict> i *think* einstein has native 64bit apps though...

06:52 <KathrynM> no they don't

06:53 <PovAddict> hmm

06:54 <PovAddict> do you know the package name for 32bit libs on ubuntu?

06:54 <noren> well i just wanted to know is the boinc is doing any computational work or not... how to check it

06:54 <KathrynM> ia32 or something like that

06:54 <PovAddict> noren: top :)

06:55 <PovAddict> if you see einstein process using CPU...

06:56 <noren> hi PovAddict : yestarday after all download it suddenly stoped. no computation at activity

06:56 <noren> oops typo

06:57 <noren> i cud only see boinc process using memory and shared memory but bo cpu activity

06:57 <PovAddict> do you have a graphical interface?

06:57 <noren> i have this boinc manager

06:58 <PovAddict> check messages tab

07:00 <noren> it says no work sent reached daily quota

07:01 *** noren has quit IRC

07:02 <PovAddict> heh, been crashing tasks like crazy

07:03 <KathrynM> and she lost her terminal

07:03 <KathrynM> hope she finds it again

07:03 <KathrynM> I'm thinking ia32libs need to be installed

07:03 <PovAddict> I think boinc should check for actual ability to run 32bit apps on 64bit OS before tellin the server that it can

07:04 <KathrynM> mail DA.  I dare you :-p

07:07 *** noren has joined #boinc

07:09 <noren> oh sorry got dc, well do i need to install everything again

07:13 *** noren has quit IRC

07:16 <hawmps> people who end up installing *nix boinc from packages end up with so many more problems than those who just install it all in one dedicated dir from the berkeley/dl/ prebuilts

07:16 <PovAddict> ...

07:16 <PovAddict> you keep blaming the package

07:18 <hawmps> I simply state the facts.

08:09 <CoderForLife> re-morning folks

08:09 <CoderForLife> TIme Warner and I had a disagreement over my Internet access this morning

08:10 <CoderForLife> I thought I had access, they thought I didn't, apparently

08:10 <CoderForLife> I have a new IP address now, which caused me to have DNS phun

08:11 <CoderForLife> can you get to my server now PovAddict, with the new address?

08:18 <PovAddict> whats the DNS name?

08:31 <KathrynM> I can get there CoderForLife

08:32 <PovAddict> and Rommie can too

08:33 <PovAddict> and I can too

08:34 <CoderForLife> I think you were blocked before, right?

08:35 <PovAddict> hmm yes, but i hadnt tried for a long time

08:35 <CoderForLife> well , I guess that's one benefit

08:36 <PovAddict> qwerty onscreen keyboards suck

08:36 <CoderForLife> it may be faster too, based on some morning speed testing

08:38 <CoderForLife> double bonus

08:38 <CoderForLife> having to change IP addresses in 3 DNS servers this morning - priceless

08:39 <hawmps> then the whole viral propagation thing...

08:50 <CoderForLife> right - my domains are on a 1/2 hour to 1 hour replication time

08:50 <CoderForLife> far more leisurely than I would like

09:02 <KathrynM> ugh

09:02 <KathrynM> the cat just slid down my back, nails digging into my skin

09:02 <Soul_keeper> Good Morning People !

09:32 <CoderForLife> The Peeps Bid You Welcome

09:33 <CoderForLife> We've had a few Blackberry Storms encounter violent collisions with walls, due to onscreen qwerty keyboards, PovAddict

09:34 <Soul_keeper> RIMM will now have an "apps store" for the blackberry, just like apple

09:34 <Soul_keeper> and eharmony made a section for those of you in that condition

09:37 <Soul_keeper> Not looking like i'll meet the deadline for a WCG wu on my Eee

09:37 <Soul_keeper> 116Hrs into it and 77% done

09:37 <Soul_keeper> due on sunday

09:38 <Soul_keeper> the estimated time seems wrong, moves maybe 2 or 3% a day

09:56 * Soul_keeper gives it an overclock

10:03 <Soul_keeper> +33%

10:11 <zombie67> as long as you return it before the re-issued task, you should be okay, even if it is late

10:13 <Soul_keeper> ohhh

12:42 <Soul_keeper> no e-mail address ?

12:47 <FreeLarry58> one too many electric shocks in life

12:48 <FreeLarry58> and no not for medical purposes

12:48 <Soul_keeper> well you know, the youngsters have to buy drugs to get that effect.  you should be thankfull it's free :)

12:49 <FreeLarry58> too many of them should have left me dead - medical people were surprised i didn't even go to them afterwards

12:50 <FreeLarry58> except for the one that knocked me unconsous

12:50 <FreeLarry58> and that from blow to head

12:50 <Soul_keeper> ahh

12:51 <Soul_keeper> I got an uncle that was born with his heart upside down,  he's had like 3 heart attacks and a few strokes.   The doctors gave him 6 months to live about 5yrs ago

12:51 <Soul_keeper> he just keeps going, he was an MP tho for the navy  he's tough

12:51 <FreeLarry58> lol not upside down here but shaped like a pancake

14:01 <PovAddict> must be all the meds

14:01 <MTughan> 60 beats/minute is still a little slow.

14:01 *** Eythan has joined #boinc

14:01 <MTughan> Normal is around 80 or so IIRC.

14:01 <PovAddict> well can't measure exactly now

14:02 <PovAddict> I'd say I have a bit more now

14:02 <PovAddict> but while i was in bed, it was 60 or a little bit *less*

14:05 <PovAddict> I'm taking three different medications and two of them said they may cause sleepyness... I didn't *check* the third

14:06 <Soul_keeper> is it just me or has obama got more stupid every time he's spoken ?

14:06 <Soul_keeper> he uses "uhhhh" several times in each sentence

14:29 <PovAddict> no benefits?

14:29 <PovAddict> :)

14:30 <PovAddict> I've read technical details on Vista; there are many benefits, but not worth the $$$

14:30 <PovAddict> (if you already paid for XP, why do you have to pay *full price* for Vista?)

14:32 <FreeLarry58> PovAddict did you get my side?

14:32 <PovAddict> yes

15:31 <mweltin> I wish Stallman would give that a rest.

15:31 <mweltin> I understand his point, but he is taking things too far with that article.

15:32 <Soul_keeper> nah my hero is never wrong !

15:32 <mweltin> Some of us refuse entirely to install proprietary software, and many others consider non-freedom a strike against the program.

15:33 <mweltin> that line is simply impractical.

15:33 <Soul_keeper> not for me

15:33 <Soul_keeper> gpl or death here

15:33 <PovAddict> he usually takes things too far, but ok

15:33 <Soul_keeper> I even avoid lgpl as often as possible

15:34 <mweltin> I'm all for OS, and if fact will go as long as I can without a proprietary option.

15:35 <mweltin> but sometimes you dont' have another option, or the proprietary version is cheap enough and allows for the completion of a task in a timely manner.

15:36 <mweltin> try encoding mts video with layer 10 xh234 encoding with OS tools.

15:36 <Soul_keeper> Yeah i'm a hardliner, If it's not GPL then I don't need it

15:36 <PovAddict> thats what RMS wants, give people the option

15:37 <mweltin> way cheaper to spend the $30 on an piece of software than all the research required.

15:37 <mweltin> it already is an option

15:37 <mweltin> youdno't have to execute any javascript

15:46 <Romulus> I hear ya!

15:46 <Tank_Master> gettin my comps working again and selling them

15:47 <mweltin> I didn't think guys like you sold computers.

15:47 <mweltin> I thought you just acquired more.

15:47 <Tank_Master> im buying an i7

15:47 <Tank_Master> selling off the old to buy new

15:47 <Tank_Master> im selling the old cus they dont work

15:48 <Tank_Master> n are out of warrenty :P

15:48 <mweltin> but you are fixing them so they work.

15:48 <Tank_Master> I can get more from them if they work

15:48 <mweltin> what are you selling off?

15:49 <Tank_Master> a qx6700 with 4gb ram and a e6600 with 2GB ram

15:50 <Tank_Master> gettin an i7 920 with 6 or 12 gb ram and a geforce 285

15:50 <Tank_Master> should boot my score a bit

15:50 <Tank_Master> boost*

15:53 <Tank_Master> I mean, a P2 would boost my score to, but its not worth running it

20:04 <XioNYC> :-)

20:04 <mweltin> passwd is changed as well.

20:04 *** xcamel sets mode: -o xcamel

20:04 <MTughan> And then you'll just have to modify the script to use the new password.

20:05 <mweltin> I have no idea where that script is.

20:05 <MTughan> Windows?

20:05 <Romulus> Somebody said Windows is not nearly as SHA1 computational friendly as Linux, MTughan

20:07 <MTughan> Do you know where pidgin is installed?

20:07 <mweltin> It's scary to think how I'll prepared I can be at time.

20:08 <mweltin> My guess somewhere on c:\

20:08 <MTughan> lol

20:08 <MTughan> Try C:\Program Files\Pidgin or something.

20:08 <MTughan> Look for a plugins subfolder.

20:08 <mweltin> yeah Im sure

20:09 <mweltin> yup its there

20:09 <MTughan> Wait, I think the script I wrote for you was for Xchat, and wouldn't've worked with Pidgin... Did you set up autoidentification in Pidgin itself?

20:09 <mweltin> mmmmmmmm I don't know.

20:10 <mweltin> I prefer having my computer be a surprise ever time I boot it up. lets me feel alive.

22:17 <MTughan> Anyone know what this means? "The extended attributes are inconsistent. (0xff) - exit code 255 (0xff)

22:17 <MTughan> "

22:20 <PovAddict> OS?

22:20 <Romulus> Somebody said OS is so damn sexy, PovAddict

22:20 <PovAddict> forget OS

22:20 <Romulus> Gotcha, PovAddict.

22:20 <MTughan> Vista Ultimate 32-bit.

22:21 *** mikechelen has joined #boinc

22:21 <PovAddict> my guess is an app is exiting with a custom code "0xff" and BOINC is interpreting that as a standard Windows error code

22:21 <PovAddict> which happens to mean "extended attributes inconsistent"

22:21 <MTughan> Hold on, I'll get the WU link.

22:21 <MTughan> Most of these. http://www.intelligencerealm.com/aisystem/results.php?hostid=12882

22:21 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/dc4krl> (at www.intelligencerealm.com)

22:22 <PovAddict> yes, probably app quitting with custom code

22:22 <PovAddict> is the app open source?

22:22 <MTughan> Yes... I'll get a link.

22:22 <PovAddict> are you using a self-built app?

22:23 <MTughan> http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=196242

22:23 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/ccy9xv> (at sourceforge.net)

22:23 <MTughan> That's not my comp.

22:23 <PovAddict> oh :/

22:23 <MTughan> Someone reported the problem on the forums. I think he's using stock.

22:23 * PovAddict plays with ccache some more

22:23 <MTughan> It's a Q6600 B3 if that helps any.

22:27 <Soul_keeper> sounds like it is saying a file was modified, like an anti-cheat thing

22:28 <Soul_keeper> extended attributes should be like     last modification time, creation time, permissions maybe

22:34 <MTughan> w00t? New tab record in Firefox: 117.

22:34 <PovAddict> O_O

22:34 <PovAddict> screenshot or it didn't happen

22:34 <PovAddict> also, screenshot of process monitor showing memory usage

22:34 <MTughan> Actually, it'd be 118 tabs...

22:35 <jasong> Does anyone here have a Core2Quad 9550?

22:35 <MTughan> Process Monitor? I only have Task Manager. That work?

22:35 <jasong> The reason I ask is that it has a total cache of 12MB which is a little over 100 million bits, and...

22:36 <PovAddict> whatever

22:36 <PovAddict> process monitor, task manager, process explorer, top...

22:36 <infinisoft> :o.

22:36 <jasong> that makes the idea of running LLR tests that reside totally in cache potentially way more productive than they are

22:37 <jasong> Paging to RAM slows it down tremendously, so I'm wondering how high a specially made Linux distro could do an LLR test without it leaving the L2 cache

22:37 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/cdv9ww> (at mtughan.dyndns.org:8888)

22:38 <jasong> Isn't there a formula to calculate how much memory an LLR test needs

22:38 <PovAddict> hugin is good btw

22:38 <jasong> Something like 8 bits of memory for every bit in the exponent or something

22:38 <MTughan> Ah, hugin is on the task list...

22:38 <MTughan> Yeah, trying it out.

22:38 <PovAddict> MTughan: in the tab list :)

22:38 <PovAddict> I didn't see the other pic yet

22:38 <MTughan> Oh, or that too.. xD

22:38 <PovAddict> you have a wikipedia:hugin page open

22:39 <MTughan> Yeah.

22:39 <PovAddict> Firefox3 clearly improved memory usage, I used to get 400MB usage with only a few dozen tabs

22:39 *** mikechelen has quit IRC

22:39 <MTughan> That's actually fairly low. I've seen it up around 650MB, but yeah.

22:39 <MTughan> 118 tabs.

22:39 <jasong> Are there any good prime-hunting websites other than Mersenne Forum?  That place has too many conceited jackasses

22:40 <jasong> Can you do tabs within tabs?

22:40 <jasong> That would be a nifty ability

22:40 <MTughan> Nope.

22:40 <PovAddict> jasong: do you have Firefox?

22:40 <jasong> Another cool thing would be to make scripts quit working when they're not in the front

22:41 <jasong> yes, but I'm not sure which version

22:41 <jasong> I'll check

22:41 <jasong> 3.0.8, heh, I  didn't realize

22:41 <PovAddict> jasong: open this URL in a tab: chrome://browser/content/browser.xul

22:42 <jasong> Weird, a browser within a browser

22:43 <MTughan> PovAddict: Actually, true... That is a way to have tabs within tabs. No way to custom name the tabs though.

22:44 <jasong> oh, sorry, didn't catch on.  lol, yeah, that would work

23:11 <jasong> Here come the Cylons

23:12 <jasong> They're called Adam and Eve, and they're definitely eating from the "Tree of Knowledge" so the Cylon concept of things happening over and over again holds true

23:12 <jasong> Damn, I wish I'd discovered this article on April Fool's Day

23:13 <jasong> Well, Eve isn't around yet, but that could just be another corollary

23:26 *** Eythan has quit IRC

23:27 <zombie67> i use safari

23:30 *** BadBarbarian has joined #boinc

23:52 <jasong> Does Safari do the multi-tabbed thing we were talking about?

23:53 <MTughan> I haven't seen it.

23:53 <jasong> Thanks, but...zombie are you still here?

23:54 <jasong> MT says you use an Atom for crunching?

23:54 <MTughan> BTW, at least with Safari 4, I believe Firefox's tab handling is greatly superior to Safari's.

23:54 <jasong> Ok, doorbell feature time zombie67

23:54 <MTughan> It's possible others see it differently though.

23:54 <jasong> Yeah, no biggie, I just thought it would be a cool feature

23:55 <PovAddict> never tried safari4, never tried any safari on windows

23:56 <PovAddict> Safari on Windows sounds like IE on Mac to me...

23:56 <jasong> Oh, just to be ADD, I'm going to tell you  that I seem to be the only one in this town who seems to know what a biggie is.  Apparently, my family picked up the expression when we were in Europe

23:57 <jasong> Yeah, no Wendy's restaurants in Britain

23:57 <jasong> (yes, there is a connection between the last two posts)

23:58 * PovAddict wonders if Wendy's still\nexists in Argentina

23:58 * PovAddict wonders what he did to cause a \n in the message

23:59 <jasong> Yeah, that's weird

23:59 <jasong> Do you use a qwerty?
