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

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
01:17 <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, http://sterlingdesktops.com/screenshots/ss-02-12-08.jpg here is a screenshot I took comparing the screen realestate between 1600x1200 and 2048x1536
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 <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 ...

02:16 <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?

03:03 <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.

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

14:49 <CoderForLife> roof is another one that varies locally here
14:50 <Tank_Master> never heard a variation on roof... :P
14:50 <CoderForLife> is it roof as in hoof?
14:50 <Tank_Master> yep
14:51 <CoderForLife> or roof as in boo? =P
14:51 <CoderForLife> James Taylor's "Up On The Roof"
14:51 <Tank_Master> hoof
14:52 <CoderForLife> those that say roof as in hoof tend to have Appalachian "roots"

18:29 <Tank_Master> its a full tower
18:29 <Tank_Master> can handle the server borads
18:29 <MTughan> That's compared to a 4870X2, which is a damn long card to begin with.
18:29 <MTughan> "an eighth beyond 11 inches" apparently.
18:30 <Tank_Master> so almsot a foot long... daym thats big

18:30 <MTughan> Yeah.
18:30 <MTughan> :P

18:32 <Tank_Master> at 25xx x 1600
18:32 <Tank_Master> each
18:34 <MTughan> IIRC, they're all dual-link DVI connectors, so it'd work.
18:35 <Tank_Master> :D
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.

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 distributedcomputing.info 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
22:26 <PovAddict> in fact there were 3 posts that same day
22:26 <jasong> Yeah, I've confirmed I'm not getting updates :) I just need to figure out why

22:34 * wdsmia slaps PovAddict around with a large Carp
22:35 <jasong> hmmmm, looks like it's the websites fault
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 DC.info 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?
22:44 <jasong> Or is that the generic term?

22:46 <jasong> Which of the Matrix movies is part 2?

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, but...you 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
