00:43 <XioNYC> Let this be a lesson to all: Never take on a job during the rainy season if you must work outdoors.

00:43 <Soul_keeper> rain is good for you

00:44 <Soul_keeper> makes you big and strong :)

00:49 <Soul_keeper> Any cuda crunchers here ?

00:49 <Soul_keeper> MTughan, what does your radeon core temp do while MW is crunching ?

00:49 <MTughan> 85-90C.

00:50 <Soul_keeper> ok

00:50 <Soul_keeper> i'm sitting at 70C with seti on this new card

00:50 <MTughan> I wouldn't be surprised if the cooler on here isn't a good performing unit though.

00:50 <Soul_keeper> runs a little hotter than my  9800GT

00:51 <Soul_keeper> 9800GT is running at 61C   that's an evga card tho running gpugrid

00:51 <Soul_keeper> this gts 250  is  XFX

00:54 <PovAddict> cant sleep

00:58 <XioNYC> Join the club, PovAddict

00:59 <up365> #boinsomniacs

01:00 <Soul_keeper> It's my bday for 2 more hours, i'm gonna get every minute of it

01:14 <efc> moo

01:15 <Soul_keeper> good work efc

01:15 <efc> Happy BDAY Soul_keeper

01:15 <Soul_keeper> thanks

01:16 <MTughan>

01:16 <Romulus> <> (at

01:17 <Soul_keeper> lol

01:24 <efc> Did they have their kid?

01:24 <MTughan> No, Lilah miscarried.

01:26 <efc> sort of dodged the bullet and got hit by it at the same time then

01:26 <Soul_keeper> my mother did that twice before she had me

01:26 <Soul_keeper> was probably all the weed ...

01:26 <Soul_keeper> maybe drinking I dunno

01:28 <efc> Think of them as Windows 1.0 and 2.0, and you

01:28 <efc> 're 3.0

01:29 <Soul_keeper> lol

01:30 <Soul_keeper> I was worried about this card, it had one of those discount sticker on it at the store.  someone had returned it

01:30 <Soul_keeper> seems I got lucky tho

01:36 <efc> hmm, looking at buying a 22" monitor for home.. have a 17" there now

01:36 <efc> Have a 24" here. Going back to the 17 is unpleasant.

01:36 <Soul_keeper> so they put the fast and the furious back in theatres ...

01:37 <Soul_keeper> yeah

01:37 <Soul_keeper> I have a 21" CRT

01:37 <Soul_keeper> going to lcd seems pointless untill lcd's catch up with equal or better resolutions

01:38 <MTughan> I think some do in laptop displays, but most desktop display aren't that high yet, yeah.

01:38 <MTughan> 17" laptops often have 1920x1200.

01:39 <Soul_keeper> yeah my old 15" laptop from 2002 did 1600x1200

01:39 <efc> I'm fairly happy with the 24" I got. Its a higher-end one though, IPS panel.

01:39 <Soul_keeper> just seems so wrong that they've reverted or took a step backwards

01:40 <efc> There doesn't seem to be much demand for higher DPI in LCDs for whatever reason

01:40 <efc> probably cuz a high DPI of the same size as regular is going to cost more

01:40 <efc> and therefore not fly off the shelves

01:42 <Soul_keeper> yeah all about the  companies shaving off the $$$

01:42 <efc> haha, i just noticed something

01:43 <efc> i had made a spreadsheet giving the heights widths and areas for a given diagonal size

01:43 <efc> and agonized over it for like a year

01:43 <efc> i just noticed the formula for height was screwed up, giving a smaller answer than it should have

01:43 <MTughan> lol

01:44 <MTughan> I can probably figure out the equations.

01:44 <efc> 22" looks better now, by the numbers

01:45 <Soul_keeper> 24 or higher would be my choice if i was gonna take the plunge

01:45 <efc> this is just for the weekend

01:45 <efc> I already have $600 in this one that I use most of the time..

01:46 <MTughan> I'd need more desk space. With my bookshelf above my desk, my 19" is a good fit. About two inches above the top.

01:46 <efc> In widescreen, anything smaller than a 22" is a waste.. dell likes selling these 17" 'widescreens', they're a joke. tiny.

01:47 <MTughan> I have a 19" widescreen. Not too bad, but i could definitely go for more resolution.

01:47 <MTughan> My 14" laptop has the same res FFS.

01:48 <efc> the 24" is 1920x1200.. about as much as you can get over one DVI cable, or something like that

01:48 <MTughan> A single-link DVI cable, yep.

01:48 <MTughan> Up to 2560x1600 will need a dual-link cable.

01:49 <efc> Also, its as much or more than my aging video card could handle

01:49 <MTughan> What card?

01:49 <Romulus> Rumor has it What card is on there, MTughan

01:49 <efc> gf4

01:51 <efc> mm, my lcd has fallen in price some, but still way too much to buy a second one

01:52 <Soul_keeper> efc,    here is a screenshot I took comparing the screen realestate between  1600x1200 and 2048x1536

01:52 <Romulus> <> (at

01:52 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: What cable type do you use? VGA?

01:52 <Soul_keeper> the screenshot in the brower is  1600x1200 actual size

01:52 <Soul_keeper> vga

01:53 <Soul_keeper> got a dvi to vga converter to my card

01:53 <efc> ugh, next time make it compress better :p

01:53 <Soul_keeper> :)

01:53 <Soul_keeper> i upload at over 600KB/s  you need to download faster :)

01:54 <efc> i download at 19.2kbaud, atm

01:56 <Soul_keeper> hmmm

01:56 <Soul_keeper> kilo baud ?

01:56 <efc> yeah

01:56 <Soul_keeper> how does that equate to something that makes sense ?

01:57 <efc> I do see some 30 bit panels out there, $$

01:57 <MTughan> Shrunk from 1.4MB to 436KB.

01:57 <efc> 19.2k bits basically

01:57 <MTughan> Approximately 3.5x smaller if I have my math right.

01:58 <Soul_keeper> yeah I save all my images at 85% of max quality usually

01:58 <Soul_keeper> I ignore the slow people sorry

01:58 <MTughan> That's at 80% with some optimization on through GIMP.

01:58 <Soul_keeper> maybe that was it then

01:58 <PovAddict> weird pain... it's like around my left armpit

01:59 <PovAddict> extends a few cm on both chest and arm

01:59 <Soul_keeper> PovAddict, why you always having issues ?

01:59 <MTughan> It's BOINC and DA taking a toll on his body.

01:59 <Soul_keeper> maybe you need to work out, or take up smoking

02:00 <PovAddict> smoking wont make anything better

02:01 <Soul_keeper> works for me for some reason

02:01 <MTughan> <Soul_keeper> I told him real men smoke

02:01 <PovAddict> and I dont always have issues... just the past two weeks :/

02:02 <PovAddict> then Im not a real man, can live with that

02:02 <MTughan> Ditto. :)

02:03 <Soul_keeper> real men don't use windows either ...

02:03 <efc> smoking just evens out the decay so you don't notice it

02:03 <MTughan> I'd prefer not to use Windows either. But there's two problems:

02:03 <Soul_keeper> my longs are coated on the inside, so nothing can get in to harm me

02:03 <PovAddict> seriously though is such a pain likely to be a bad thing?

02:03 <MTughan> 1) My roommate uses my computer occasionally, and he likes Windows

02:04 <MTughan> 2) OS X can't legally run on non-Mac computers.

02:04 <Soul_keeper> PovAddict, could be growing pains ...  yur still a young growing buck

02:04 <efc> i have really severe

02:04 <Soul_keeper> you don't stop growing till you're like 22 i believe

02:04 <efc> chest pain sometimes, and its apparently non-fatal

02:05 <efc> but with your other problems wouldn't take anything too lightly

02:05 <PovAddict> efc have you been mostly sedentary for the past 3 years?

02:05 <Soul_keeper> when I was in grade school i'd get massive pains in my side, would make me hit the floor and curl up.   went to the doctor and they said they were growing pains.  they went away after like a year or so

02:06 <efc> no, I run, though not enough

02:06 <efc> there's a name for the pain I had, its really long, basically means 'non fatal chest pain on the left side'

02:07 <PovAddict> common sense says Im too young to have heart problems, irrational subconcious mind disagrees and makes me nervous with any chest pain

02:07 <Soul_keeper> 190 hours and  90% done with that wcg wu,  missed the deadline 3hrs ago

02:08 <MTughan> Ouch.

02:08 <efc> Is yours associated with breathing at all?

02:08 <PovAddict> I think its weird this time that it extends along the arm some 5cm

02:09 <PovAddict> it = pain/discomfort

02:09 <Soul_keeper> maybe you had a stroke ...

02:09 <Soul_keeper> I had one in HS but luckily it didn't have lasting effects, atleast i don't think so

02:10 <PovAddict> S_k: srsly not something to joke about, Ive been worried about having heart problems, and worrying makes symptoms worse

02:10 <efc> One doctor I went to basically told me I was making it up

02:10 <Soul_keeper> someone I know has a son that's like 20yrs old, he had a blood clott in his brain

02:10 <Soul_keeper> not joking PovAddict

02:11 <PovAddict> efc: I read in a forum about someone whose family/doctors kept trying to convince him he was makin things up, and turned out to be a real problem

02:11 <Soul_keeper> either we die or live, no point getting stressed thinking about it. But if you are really worried pitch a tent in front of the doctor's office

02:12 <efc> Unless its really bad, should probably sleep on it. The older you get the more weird random pains you have, most are nothing.

02:12 <Soul_keeper> my first inclination was to tell you to "stop being a sissy boy"  i'm exercising restraint :)

02:14 <Soul_keeper> personally I have chest pains all the time, I deserve them for things i've done to myself tho

02:14 <MTughan> Like smoking?

02:14 <MTughan> (Sorry, couldn't resist :P)

02:14 <Soul_keeper> nah that makes me stronger

02:14 <Soul_keeper> :)

02:14 <PovAddict> efc: I think its stupid to think this at this age, but lately I sorta worried about having a serious heart problem while sleeping...

02:14 <Soul_keeper> i've done things in the past to my heart/immune system i'd rather not speak about

02:15 <PovAddict> S_k: worse drugs?

02:15 <Soul_keeper> amoung other more severe things ...

02:15 *** [B^S]renemayer has joined #boinc

02:16 <PovAddict> hmm my sister is talking gibberish while sleeping :p

02:16 <MTughan> What, she doesn't do that while awake?

02:16 <Soul_keeper> heh, my brother used to talk in his sleep

02:16 <MTughan> My sister talks gibberish all the time.

02:17 <PovAddict> well, saying stupid things vs saying something not even in a real language

02:18 <efc> I have these dreams where I'm screaming for what seems like hours. Wonder if I'm making any noise.

02:18 <PovAddict> should I try sleeping, again?

02:18 <Soul_keeper> you prolly are

02:39 <efc> don't think i'll make up my mind tonight

02:41 <efc> aww they had one for $190 but sold out

02:43 <efc> fairly basic 24" samsung, $300 after a rebate

02:50 <efc> ugh, i hate all this glossy black junk

02:51 <MTughan> Prefer matte black?

02:52 <efc> Yeah. Glossy is distracting and gets fingerprints.

02:52 <MTughan> Agreed.

02:52 <MTughan> At least they don't use glossy screens... Do they?

02:53 <efc> I hope not, but don't know

02:53 <efc> HP does

02:53 <efc> Look nice in the store

02:53 <efc> but don't think i'd want one

02:55 <efc> also have seen a few touch screens in the store

02:55 <efc> Would be nice .. for something, not quite sure what

02:55 <efc> Could probably do some really different gaming interfaces

02:56 <MTughan> Depending on the quality of the screens, graphics artists might find it useful.

02:57 <efc> I don't know of any games that can use two mice, but that might be interesting too. One for moving the character, another for using the interface (buttons etc)

02:57 <efc> Would definitely add some skill elements

02:58 <efc> i was just thinking two mice here, but thats a possibility too

02:59 <efc> i don't think you'd want to use a touchscreen for any length of time, would be very fatiguing

02:59 <MTughan> Yeah.

02:59 <efc> unless it was laying flat

02:59 <efc> With that.. you could make an omni-board game!

02:59 <MTughan> Also, the current way Windows handles two mice is that it averages the movement between the two. Dunno if they can be separately detected.

02:59 <MTughan> Omni-board?

03:00 <efc> many different board games in one

03:00 <MTughan> Ah.

03:00 <efc> Display the monopoly board, or parcheesi, or Sorry, etc

03:00 <MTughan> Have you seen the Surface?

03:00 <efc> The thing microsoft did?

03:01 <MTughan> Yeah.

03:01 <efc> I remember it from a while back vaguely

03:01 <MTughan>

03:01 <Romulus> Title: Microsoft Surface - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at

03:03 <efc> Another cool UI thing was the intel Pen concept

03:04 <efc> never built, just done as proof of concept

03:05 <efc> Yeah that looks pretty cool

03:05 <MTughan> Expensive Omni-board though. :P

03:06 <MTughan> $12,500, presumable USD.

03:08 <efc> Unfortunately, it runs Vista.

03:08 <MTughan> That it does, but it probably could run Win7.

03:10 <efc> I have an idea for an interesting special purpose UI, but haven't figured out how to build it yet

14:43 <jasong> question for the channel:  Do you pronounce the word route as 'rowt' or 'root'?

14:43 <jasong> My parents make fun of me because I'm the only one in the family that pronounces it as rowt

14:44 <jasong> I'm wondering if I may have picked up my version on the east coast, or maybe even earlier in Germany

14:44 <CoderForLife> I say it differently depending on the context

14:44 <jasong> What context?

14:44 <CoderForLife> if it's "networking", it's always rowt

14:45 <jasong> lol, ok, that's the context where I was being made fun of

14:45 <Soul_keeper> rowt for me

14:45 <CoderForLife> if it's the American highway labeled 66 - it's alway root

14:45 <Tank_Master> CFL is correct, its pronounced both ways

14:45 <Tank_Master> depending on how its used

14:45 <CoderForLife> Route Sixty-Six

14:45 <CoderForLife> is root

14:45 <jasong> so the highway is a root and the online thing is a rowter?

14:45 <leifdk1978> geez asto pulse is some hard wu

14:45 <CoderForLife> generally

14:45 <jasong> ok, thanks

14:46 <Tank_Master> I saye route 66, not root :P

18:36 <MTughan> Yep, they're dual-link.

18:37 <Tank_Master> man o man..

18:37 <Tank_Master> cheep to

18:38 <MTughan> Because it uses 4850 chips, not 4870s.

18:38 <MTughan> Saves on memory, going to DDR3.

18:39 <Tank_Master> huh

18:39 <Tank_Master> none of the 4870x2s have quad output

18:39 <MTughan> No, they're all dual outputs.

18:39 <Tank_Master> yeah, suprisong...

18:40 <MTughan> The 4850X2 isn't actually an official design. It's custom by Sapphire.

18:40 <Tank_Master> guess they needed the space for cooling

18:41 <MTughan> Anyway, I'm off for a bit... Playing LOTR on Xbox. :)

21:31 <Soul_keeper> ok just checking

21:31 <Soul_keeper> baseball team has a new pitcher, he's from venezuela tho

21:31 <Soul_keeper> ...

21:35 <Soul_keeper> apparently I don't know/care enough about your region to distinguish sorry ...

21:35 <Soul_keeper> it's like the  finland/sweden/norway  area

21:35 <PovAddict> I always confuse sweden/switzerland

21:36 <PovAddict> what's their demonym?

21:36 <Soul_keeper> &dict demonym

21:36 <Romulus> Soul_keeper: No definition for "demonym" could be found.

21:36 <MTughan> Swedish and Swiss.

21:36 <Soul_keeper> nah that's switzerland

21:37 * wdsmia shakes his head at the IQ level of this room

21:37 <Soul_keeper> swedes is  swedish

21:37 <PovAddict> &grab wdsmia

21:37 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.

21:37 <Soul_keeper> switzerland is pretty memorable, with their banks and nuetral history n all

21:37 <MTughan> Finland, Sweden, and Norway are more interesting...

21:37 <Soul_keeper> mountains etc.

21:37 <Soul_keeper> watches

21:37 <MTughan> Finnish, Swedish, Norman.

21:38 <PovAddict> finns :P

21:38 <Soul_keeper> I once knew about 4 people online from sweden and finland,  they stopped coming online a few years ago tho

21:38 <PovAddict> durned furriners

21:38 <Soul_keeper> only thing I really remember about them is what kinda computer hardware they had ... odd

21:39 <MTughan> Oops... Norway is Norwegian...

21:39 <MTughan> I think it was Denmark I was thinking of: Dane.

21:39 <Soul_keeper> yeah normands from normandy (dday area)

21:39 <MTughan> Or whatever. They're some odd ones.

21:40 <Soul_keeper> it's easier just to group all the europeans into one description I guess :)

21:40 <MTughan> Heh.

21:40 <Soul_keeper> i've heard the term  "eurotrash" tossed around

21:40 <PovAddict> too many tiny countries

21:40 <PovAddict> they're tiny compared to us in America (the continent)

21:41 <Soul_keeper> yeah

21:41 <PovAddict> a country there is a province here

21:41 <PovAddict> province/state

21:41 <MTughan> About 50 countries in Europe.

21:41 <PovAddict> but then, look at Russia

21:42 <Soul_keeper> That reminds me, one common theme with the fins/swedes i knew.  they hate russia :)

21:42 <Soul_keeper> guess from a war they had in the past, and something about vodka ...

21:42 <MTughan> Smallest country in Europe? Vatican City.

21:43 <PovAddict> try measuring in "luxury" instead of "area2

21:43 <Soul_keeper> I had a teacher that got in trouble in luxemburge when he was in the army,  said he just ran thru the whole country into germany to get away

21:47 <Soul_keeper> looks like my team lost their opening game

21:49 <Soul_keeper> the team looks worthless this year

22:16 <efc> hmm. this game will take 200+ hours to patch.

22:25 <jasong> Quick question:  The  RSS feed doesn't seem to be updating.  Is it a widespread problem involving the site, my choice in software(I'd have to check what it is, it was a sort of stab your finger randomly at the screen type of thing) or am I just an idiot that made a stupid error?  It's probably the last one, which is the reason I'm posting in irc.  If I can nail the precise reason for the fsck-up, then i actually have something to goog

22:26 <PovAddict> jasong: last update Sun, 05 Apr 2009 00:00:00 MDT

22:35 <jasong> I'll tell him

22:36 <PovAddict> website has updates dated April 5 in the RSS feed

22:36 <PovAddict> if you don't see them, problem is in your side

22:36 <PovAddict> do you see "Galaxy Zoo classified 1.5 million galaxies in 100 hours"?

22:37 <jasong> no.  If there is an RSS feed that IS working for the site, than I'd be happy to switch for that one feed

22:37 <PovAddict> see even Romulus got it

22:38 <jasong> what does Romulus use?

22:38 <PovAddict> in fact that worked out of luck

22:38 <PovAddict> he extracts <title> tags to get the title off an HTML webpage

22:38 <PovAddict> and RSS happens to use <title> so it extracted those :P

22:41 *** sigmund has quit IRC

22:42 <jasong> Yeah, I definitely missed the news about the "Huh?" signal

22:44 <jasong> I'm not sure what's going on, but I'm hoping the next update will be successful

22:44 <jasong> Does anyone else here use Live Bookmarks?

23:19 <Romulus> PovAddict: * wdsmia shakes his head at the IQ level of this room

23:25 <efc> i think i might go for cable internet

23:25 <efc> can't take it any more

23:28 <jasong> What's the matter efc?

23:28 <PovAddict> I have been a bit light headed all day

23:28 <PovAddict> I 'm now a bit scared

23:29 <efc> I don't even get my full dialup, only about half of it

23:29 <jasong> arrrggghhh, two needy people at once, what's an ircer to do?

23:29 <PovAddict> lol dialup

23:29 <jasong> lol, anything bad POV?

23:31 <PovAddict> lightheadedness all day, worse while walking

23:31 <jasong> Speaking of dialup, I don't understand why the ISPs use the tactics they do.  Don't throttle the people who use more, just charge them extra.  At some point, if the market is working properly, which from what I've heard it isn't in the US, everything should balance out in the end

23:31 <PovAddict> some chest discomfort (which may very well be my imagination/nerves, mind you)

23:32 <jasong> Okay, badly written sentence, think you might need to call a doctor POV?

23:32 <jasong> How's health care in Argentina?

23:32 * jasong half expects to hear that it's better than in the US

23:33 <PovAddict> Im scared of it being the heart... particularly scared of having serious trouble with it in my sleep

23:34 <jasong> Find a pretty girl and tell her you're afraid of dying, even if it isn't anything, you might simultaneously get a nurse and a bedmate

23:34 <jasong> if your're lucky

23:34 <PovAddict> good idea... its midnight now tho

23:35 <PovAddict> but seriously... theres enough symptoms to make me afraid of dying in my sleep... maybe its a silly thought but...

23:35 <jasong> then you need to practice acting desperate

23:36 <jasong> ookay, then, forget about pretty, just find a girl that's willing to sleep in the same bed as you, someone who's a light sleeper

23:36 <jasong> You need someone who'll keep an eye on you for free

23:36 <PovAddict> find a girl NOW?

23:37 <efc> If you find a girl before dawn I'm going down there and stealing her

23:37 <jasong> lol, you're 19, surely you know of some girls who care about you.  Or go to the doctor

23:37 <jasong> 19ish

23:37 <jasong> If memory serves

23:37 <PovAddict> yeah so what if Im 19

23:38 <jasong> I'm a 34 year old fat ugly virgin, and I can think of plenty of people who'd be happy to make sure I'm not going to die during the night

23:39 <PovAddict> are you suggesting that, considering I feel like Im gonna faint if I do as little as walking, I go out and try to do something Ive never been able to do? (find a girl)

23:39 <jasong> Don't you have a phone?  Forget about romance, just be honest about your paranoia

23:39 <PovAddict> and considering i live with my parents...

23:39 <jasong> oh, then tell them

23:39 <jasong> I didn'

23:39 <jasong> t know that last part

23:40 * MTughan is watching Dr. Strangelove

23:40 <PovAddict> my dad will be like 'here we go again' or 'argh what this time'

23:40 <MTughan> "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the war room!" xD

23:40 <jasong> What will your mom say?

23:41 <PovAddict> and will try to convince me not to worry, its nothing bad

23:41 <efc> If you had a girl, you'd forget the lightheadedness

23:41 <PovAddict> I can hear my mom snoring from here

23:41 <PovAddict> (I didnt say that)

23:43 <jasong> lol, in terms of the young girls, there's a difference between asking a girl out and telling her you're afraid you might be dying.  I can approach just about any woman anywhere if I'm asking for help with something

23:43 <jasong> If I'm faking needing the help, though, that's a different story

23:43 <PovAddict> yeah i guess i could do that, but tomorrow

23:43 <jasong> Can't do that

23:43 <jasong> okay

23:44 <jasong> the can't do that was for what I had just said, btw

23:44 <PovAddict> I guess if I really am worried about having a heart attack tonight (sounds supid when I say it), my only alternativr is waking parents up yet again

23:45 <jasong> Hey, if I knew any women within 20 miles of you, you'd have somebody to take care of you rather quickly.

23:46 *** infinisoft has quit IRC

23:46 <PovAddict> yep she'd get into the house and take care of me and my parents wouldnt even wake up... right?

23:47 <jasong> Nah, she'd tell you when she'd arrive and you'd sneak out when she threw a pebble at your window ;)

23:48 <jasong> Hey, I've got a shirt that says,"Just shy, no anti-social, you can talk to me."  maybe you need, what, the spanish version?

23:48 <jasong> oops

23:48 <jasong> not anti-social

23:48 <PovAddict> definitely

23:49 <PovAddict> except maybe i AM antisocial?

23:49 <jasong> lol, I'm not sure that would go over well

23:50 <PovAddict> I feel bad about waking dad up again

23:51 <jasong> After you feel better, make a note to get your mother some breathe-right strips

23:52 <jasong> Sounds like she's worse off than you are

23:52 <jasong> I've been told that I snore, but I've never heard myself

23:52 <jasong> Maybe I should ask my parents to record it

23:53 <jasong> Or...there's a microphone on this computer and WAV files don't take up a lot of space, so I could set it to go all night

23:54 <jasong> hmmmm...I need to explore that
