IRC logs of #boinc for Tuesday, 2009-04-14

00:04 <MTughan> i3luefire?

00:05 <i3luefire> well it runs the prog but still no cuda or atleast i cant tell

00:06 <MTughan> What version is it?

00:08 <i3luefire> same as b4 6.4.5

00:08 <MTughan> If you scroll up to the first message in the Messages tab, it should say a version number. What does it say?

00:10 <i3luefire> i disconnected it from the local host

00:10 <i3luefire> i suck

00:10 <MTughan> Well, I was just wondering if there was still a core client running from before, one without the right libraries.

00:11 <MTughan> Reopen the manager, go to Advanced->Shut down connected client, and say yes. Cancel the location box, and then restart the manager.

00:13 <i3luefire> it says connecting to localhost at the bottom right hand side of the window

00:13 <i3luefire> now it says disconnected

00:13 <MTughan> Maybe it can't start the core client then... Close it down, then try running /var/lib/boinc-client/boincmgr from a command line, see what it says.

00:16 <i3luefire> it is running it and wanting me to attach to projects again

00:16 <MTughan> Cancel that and see if the messages say it's found a coprocessor.

00:17 <i3luefire> success!!!!!

00:17 <MTughan> There we go... :)

00:17 <i3luefire> THANX a million

00:17 <i3luefire> lol

00:17 <MTughan> Attach to SETI (or whatever project) and see if it downloads CUDA work.

00:21 <i3luefire> how do i know if it got cuda work?

00:22 <MTughan> I suppose you'll see the graphics slow down.

00:22 <MTughan> I'm really not sure, I don't have any compatible CUDA and OS combinations myself.

00:22 <MTughan> Tank_Master: You still here?

00:28 <i3luefire> lol. oh well. thanks for helping me. and at least it knows that the card is there now which is better than b4

00:28 <i3luefire> im going to bed

00:28 <MTughan> True. Night.

00:28 <i3luefire> goodnight all

00:53 <Nickuwo> wtf... my domain is pointing at my ip, but im getting network timeout

00:56 <MTughan> Is port 80 open?

00:56 <MTughan> Actually, I'm getting it.

00:57 <MTughan> Nickuwo: I can get to Ramsey.

00:57 <Nickuwo> ahh yes... my host file, of course :)

00:58 <Nickuwo> <--- slow

00:58 <Nickuwo> thanks mt

01:14 *** efc has quit IRC

01:27 <Tank_Master> MTughan - define "still"

01:27 <Tank_Master> :P

01:27 <MTughan> lol

01:28 <MTughan> I wondered if there was something that indicated a CUDA WU was running.

01:28 <Tank_Master> afaik both SETI and GPU grud have cuda in the name of the cuda app

01:29 <MTughan> But nothing special in BOINC other than the WU or app name?

01:29 <Tank_Master> in the last tab, itll say something like (100% GPU, .03% CPU

01:30 <Tank_Master> or something like thAT

01:30 <Tank_Master> I dont have BOIN runing on this laptop, so I cant check

01:30 <MTughan> Well, anything is better than nothing.

01:31 <Tank_Master> I should have my quad up n runing by next week

01:31 <MTughan> Weren't you running CUDA WUs before?

01:31 <Tank_Master> I sold the comp with my 8800 to someone I knew would let me stull run it after I gave it to him

01:32 <Tank_Master> but ill have something new ina few weeks :D

02:35 <Soul_keeper> ahhh

02:36 <Soul_keeper> yeah you're screwed

02:36 <Tank_Master> hehe

02:36 <Soul_keeper> you gonna try ?

02:36 <Tank_Master> RS has been dead for a long time anyway

02:36 <Soul_keeper> ok

02:37 <MTughan> How the heck do you still have WUs from 14 months ago?

02:37 <Tank_Master> ah shyt, bam detached yoyo

02:38 <Tank_Master> I havent ran this comp in 14 months?

02:38 <Tank_Master> its a dual P4 blade sever

02:38 <Tank_Master> hella noisy

02:39 <Tank_Master> I think this is even a beta of server 2008 on here

02:41 <jasong> You guys ever track the price of carbon nanotubes?

02:41 <jasong> I started tracking it about 3-5 years ago

02:41 <jasong> The prices are about a tenth of what they were

02:41 *** desti has joined #boinc

02:42 <jasong> I figure in about 5-10 years, we'll have batteries that would knock your socks off right now

02:42 <MTughan> Isn't that what today's batteries were 5-10 years ago?

02:42 <jasong> lol, maybe

02:43 <jasong> I don't think battery tech has advanced all that much in recent history

02:43 <jasong> If they improve a battery by 10%, it's big news for the industry

02:43 <jasong> It's the whole problem of surface area vs. volume

02:44 <jasong> Carbon nanotubes solve that

02:44 <Tank_Master> I think I read that a nickle/silver mix will be the replacemet for lithum-ion

02:44 <jasong> I don't know

02:44 <Tank_Master> in a few years

02:44 <jasong> But it's like the surface area of a bald hear compared to the surface area of the hair on someone's head

02:45 <Tank_Master> illbrb, shuting this noisy thing off

02:45 <jasong> that's also how we manage to get enough oxygen to sustain ourselves

02:45 *** Tank_Master has quit IRC

02:46 <Soul_keeper> they are using platinum in these car batteries

02:46 <Soul_keeper> the electric cars that is

02:47 <jasong> yeah, but there's only a limited amount of platinum in the world

02:47 <Soul_keeper> yup

02:47 <jasong> Carbon is like sand, there's a shedload of it

02:47 <MTughan> We have carbon in us. :)

02:48 <Soul_keeper> yeah but from an investor standpoint ... if they continue using the rare stuff a few with $$$ get more $$$

02:48 <jasong> Just think, we might be using part of the solution to the world's energy problems to write on paper

02:48 <jasong> true

02:49 <Soul_keeper> they better do something in my lifetime, it's make or break at this point

02:49 <jasong>

02:49 <Romulus> <> (at

02:49 <Soul_keeper> sure I guess we could wear respirators and burn coal in our vehicles after we run out of oil ....

02:49 <jasong> Look at that horrid tagline

02:50 <jasong> No, carbon nanotubes have the potential to make super-batteries

02:50 <Soul_keeper> no, ok

02:52 *** Tank_Master has joined #boinc

02:52 <Tank_Master> ahh, so quiet now...

02:52 <MTughan> lol

02:52 <Tank_Master> sad thing is the laptop's HD is whining

02:53 <Tank_Master> yet it was nothing compaireed to the fans on the blade server

02:53 <MTughan> Was just reading over a review on SPCR, they said a high powered system drew about 220W... Weaklings. :)

02:53 <MTughan> My system draws about 320-330W under full load, and those are the components after the PSU. It's about 400W from the wall.

02:54 <jasong> Global warming, we've heard of it ;)

02:56 <MTughan> Sh*t, out of disk space...

02:57 <jasong> How much do you have total?

02:57 <jasong> just curious

02:57 <MTughan> This drive is 120GB, the other is 160GB.

02:57 <MTughan> Just deleted two DVDs off the desktop as they're on a 500GB external anyway, freed 10GB.

02:58 <jasong> They're up to 2TB, with the sweet spot being around 320 and 500GB

02:58 <MTughan> Yep, I'd like to get a 640GB.

02:58 <MTughan> And the 2TB drives ATM don't have the greatest performance.

02:59 <MTughan> They're also quite expensive, but that's another matter.

02:59 <jasong> The first hard drive my family ever owned was about 20GB

02:59 <jasong> lol, not per gigabyte

02:59 <MTughan> A 2TB is more expensive than 2x 1TB drives.

02:59 <jasong> ahhh, true

03:00 <MTughan> I don't know of any people who need a 2TB drive anyway.

03:01 <MTughan> My roommate has a 750GB drive he filled, but he has a 1TB that's still only about 300-500GB full.

03:01 <MTughan>

03:01 <Romulus> Title: Comics - (at

03:02 <MTughan> Missed pun FTW.

03:02 <jasong> I have a 2TB drive, it's mirrored

03:02 *** ELGono has joined #boinc

03:02 <jasong> I figure it'll sustain me for at least a year

03:02 <jasong> maybe more

03:02 <MTughan> You have 2 2TB drives mirrored in a RAID1 array?

03:02 <jasong> no, 2 1TB

03:02 <jasong> It's a MyBook

03:02 <MTughan> Ah...

03:03 <jasong> That's RAID0, right?

03:03 <jasong> What you're talking about would be RAID10, I think

03:04 <jasong> 2 striped drives that are mirrored by 2 other striped drives

03:04 <jasong> 8TB total, but 4TB functionally

03:04 <Tank_Master> my first drive was 512MB

03:04 <MTughan> A RAID 10 requires 4 drives.

03:05 <MTughan> Ah right, RAID 0 doubles the capacity.

03:05 <jasong> I think the first hard drives were like 20MB

03:05 <jasong> and huge

03:05 <jasong> 100s of pounds

03:05 <jasong> no RAID 0 halves the capacity

03:05 <Tank_Master> no, not that big

03:06 <MTughan> RAID 1 keeps the capacity.

03:06 <jasong> yeah

03:06 <Tank_Master> about 4 DVDs stacked ontop onealother

03:06 <Tank_Master> dvd drives*

03:09 <efc> the old DEC hard drives were called Washing Machines, for good reason

10:39 <PovAdct_w> yes, but nevermind, I thought I had found a bug in the code, but it's OK

10:39 <MTughan> Yeah, it seemed to work on Vista.

10:39 <PovAdct_w> it was dividing an integer by 1000 and storing it in a double; the result of the division getting truncated before it got into a double variable

10:40 <PovAdct_w> however, that just means it won't have millisecond accuracy :)

17:52 <MTughan> "Vista today, post-Service Pack 2, which is now in the marketplace, is the safest, most reliable OS we've ever built. It's also the most secure OS on the planet, including Linux and open source and Apple Leopard." So that's why Conficker is eating your OSes inside out...

17:54 <Tank_Master> its not

17:55 *** i3luefire has quit IRC

17:55 <MTughan> It's not the safest, or Conficker isn't a problem?

17:55 <Tank_Master> and the vunerbility that conficker is useing was patched b4 the virus came out

17:55 <MTughan> So? The vulnerability still existed.

17:55 <Tank_Master> it dont now

17:56 <Tank_Master> just numnuts out there dont update their comps

17:56 <MTughan> It's not numbnuts, but enterprises doing compatibility testing or trying to do multiple updates at once to reduce their workload.

17:56 <Tank_Master> though I dont agree with "the most secure", thats to subjective

17:57 <MTughan> Dunno if it's an actual quote, but it should be: "Your OS is only secure as the people who use it."

17:57 <Tank_Master> where did you read that?

17:57 <MTughan> only as*

17:57 <MTughan>

17:57 <Romulus> <> (at

17:57 <MTughan> It was in a Slashdot article.

17:58 <Tank_Master> slashbot are numnuts

17:58 <MTughan> All they did was quote the article.

17:58 <MTughan> Looks like a speech given by Microsoft's CIO.

17:58 <Tank_Master> yeah, well, they still are numnuts

17:58 <Tank_Master> :P

17:58 <MTughan> Oops, COO.

18:00 <MTughan> Would this be more FUD-like stuff? Like the laptop hunters TV ads?

18:00 <MTughan> The ads portray PCs, yes. But they're showing off HP and Sony, not Microsoft.

18:00 <Tank_Master> thats odd, if SP2 was relesed, then why does still have a link to SP1?

18:01 <MTughan> I wondered about that... Because Vista only has SP1. SP2 might be development or alpha, but it's certainly not released.

18:01 <MTughan> Maybe he's referring to XP SP2?

18:02 <Tank_Master> no, vista SP2 should be out soon, as with office 2007 SP2

18:02 <MTughan> Wasn't Vista SP1 released like 2-3 months ago?

18:19 <Tank_Master> LO

18:19 <zombie67> I noticed yoyo implemented wcg-like badges

18:19 <Tank_Master> :P

18:19 <MTughan> zombie67: I think he's had those for a little while.

18:19 <Tank_Master> oh sweet, wonder how meny I lised out on

18:19 <zombie67> problem is that they don't go back all the way

18:20 <zombie67> according to the badge table, only 30k of my 1M has been counted

18:24 <zombie67> see the problem?:

18:25 *** Carlasouza has joined #boinc

18:25 <Tank_Master> just giving the rest of us a chance

18:25 <Tank_Master> :)

18:26 <PovAddict> what the

18:26 <PovAddict> you saved a webpage into PDF?

18:26 <MTughan> I'll save a PNG...

18:26 <PovAddict> I mean that's awesome

18:26 <PovAddict> your browser can do it?

18:26 <PovAddict> ah I know! you "printed" into a PDF

18:26 <zombie67> On mac, the default screen capture saves to TIFF, then I have to convert it to pgn for jpg.

18:27 <zombie67> Easier is to just use the print dialog and save to pdf

18:27 <MTughan> Any OS X application can "print" to PDF, because it's the default format.

18:27 <MTughan> zombie67: You can change the default.

18:27 <PovAddict> the page header and footer made me notice it was a "print"

18:27 <MTughan> I have mine set to PNG.

18:27 <zombie67> MT, you have Grab set to png??

18:28 <zombie67> how??

18:28 <Romulus> Somebody said how is breakfast, zombie67

18:28 <MTughan> No, the Cmd+Shift+(3|4) shortcuts.

18:28 <zombie67> I don't know the shortcuts

18:28 <Tank_Master> stfu rommie

18:28 <MTughan> Cmd+Shift+3 takes a full-screen screenshot and saves it to the desktop.

18:28 <zombie67> I can never remember them when I need them

18:29 <MTughan> Cmd+Shift+4 allows you to select an area of the screen to screenshot. Pressing space after that allows you to select a window.

18:29 <MTughan>

18:29 <Romulus> <> (at

18:29 <zombie67> oh yeah, I am sure to remember THAT

18:29 <MTughan> lol

18:29 <MTughan> It's handier than opening Grab for me.

18:29 <Tank_Master> win7 can now select a part of the secreen to save as an image

18:29 <MTughan> Tank_Master: Vista came with Snipping Tool.

18:29 <zombie67> where do you set your prefs for that shortcut?

18:30 <MTughan> Hold on a sec..

18:30 <Tank_Master> ahh, never noticed it :P

18:30 <zombie67> right, like I said, grab is a pain.  that's why I just used Print

18:30 <MTughan> I think I used Onyx to change the default.

18:31 <MTughan>

18:31 <Romulus> Title: Titanium Software (at

18:31 <zombie67> damnit.  onyx is forcing me to quit safari

18:32 <zombie67> malariacontrol has work again

18:32 <MTughan> GPUGRID is back up as well.

18:33 <zombie67> I am using my cuda cards for seti beta for now

18:34 <zombie67> wow

18:34 <Tank_Master> ?

18:34 <Tank_Master> has einstine come out with a gpu app yet?

18:34 <MTughan> Not that I know of.

18:34 * PovAddict meh's at GPUs

18:35 <zombie67> onyx completely wedged my machine

18:35 <Tank_Master> not our fault uour to poor ot get a $75 GPU to crunch on, pov

18:35 <Tank_Master> :D

18:35 <MTughan> Just leave it. It can take a bit sometimes, I know.

18:35 <zombie67> so mine was already set to PNG

18:36 <zombie67> but there is no way I am going to be able to remember those shortcuts

18:36 <MTughan> Those are probably the Cmd+Shift+? shortcuts.

18:36 <zombie67> just don't use them enough

18:36 <MTughan> Yeah.

18:36 <MTughan> I think they changed the default to PNG with Leopard.

18:36 <zombie67> I need an app like Grab, but better

18:40 <wdsmia> re-hi

18:41 <Tank_Master> re-wb

18:42 * MTughan --> Java exam

18:42 <Tank_Master> hf!

18:43 <zombie67> crap

18:43 <Tank_Master> ?

18:43 <zombie67> I thought "help" would be a good way to recall the shortcut

18:43 <zombie67> nope

18:43 <zombie67> it just tells you to use Grab

18:45 <zombie67> bbl.  dog demands play time

18:55 <zombie67> going to try to swap out the CPU now.  wish me luck

18:55 <Tank_Master> thx, n gl :)

18:58 <zombie67> cpu-z shows that the chip already in there is QX6700

18:58 <zombie67> 65nm

18:58 <zombie67> did you want to know anything else about it?

18:58 <zombie67> weren't there other versions of it?

18:59 <zombie67> some that were better at OC than others?

18:59 <Tank_Master> I got it a year ago, I dunno what stepping it is

18:59 <zombie67> this one is stepping 7

18:59 <Tank_Master> but I had it stable at 3.45GHz on a 975 chipset

19:00 <zombie67> revision B3

19:00 <Tank_Master> so its not the better G0

19:00 <zombie67> ah!

19:00 <zombie67> that was the thing I was trying to think of

19:00 <Tank_Master> :)

19:00 <zombie67> still okay to swap?

19:00 <Tank_Master> yeah

19:01 <zombie67> okay, shutting it down now.

19:01 <Tank_Master> I wont sell it at the o/c setting

19:01 <Tank_Master> just standard

19:01 <zombie67> bbl

19:33 <Tank_Master> how much ram do you have in that?

19:33 <KathrynM> 4

19:34 <Tank_Master> its showing 3.2, as if its runingin 32bit mode

19:34 <KathrynM> weird

19:34 *** warinthepocket has quit IRC

19:34 <KathrynM> I installed F10 64

19:34 <CoderForLife> only the bravest lions go there....

19:35 <KathrynM> It seems to be working really well for me

19:35 <Tank_Master> check the bios, some you have to change the mode on the memory to work with 64bit

19:35 <CoderForLife> most highly excellent

19:35 <KathrynM> I'm sure I'll run into something later tho

19:36 <KathrynM> can you get amount of RAM installed from a cli command?

19:36 <KathrynM> I'm sure you can.  I could probably get the CLI to install RAM for me

19:36 <CoderForLife> &eightball will KathrynM run into some really awful issue with F10 64?

19:36 <Romulus> CoderForLife: The outlook is hazy, please ask again later.

19:36 <KathrynM> lol

19:36 <Tank_Master> pfft

19:37 <KathrynM> that would be cat /proc/meminfo

19:37 <KathrynM> yeah, that's only showing 3.2 as well

19:37 <KathrynM> I'll have to reboot and check the bios.  At least that's in English

19:38 <Tank_Master> LOL

19:38 <Tank_Master> the win7 I jujst installed was in russian

19:38 <Tank_Master> got it fixed though

19:39 <Tank_Master> sad thing is Ive installed it so ment Times I could go through everything w/o being able to read it

19:39 <KathrynM> :)

19:39 <KathrynM> I can deal with XP in Korean.  Vista.  No way.

19:40 <Tank_Master> well, you *sould* change it to english after its installed

19:40 <Tank_Master> could*

19:45 <KathrynM> computer came with XP pro.  I wiped it last night and put Fedora on it.

19:45 <KathrynM> I'll use my laptop if I need Windows for something

19:47 <Tank_Master> :)

19:50 <zombie67> an hour later, the operation was a success!

19:51 <PovAddict> patient recovering well?

19:51 <zombie67> this is also a B3

19:51 <zombie67> the patient is happy, but the doctor has cut knuckles

19:56 <KathrynM> I'm gonna reboot and take a peek in the bios

19:56 <KathrynM> bbiab

19:56 *** KathrynM has quit IRC

19:57 <Soul_keeper> climateprediction is down for maintenance, I guess global warming killed it !!  :)

19:58 <zombie67> it's not green to run BOINC.  It disappeared in a puff of contradiction.

19:58 <Soul_keeper> excellent

20:02 <Tank_Master> humm

20:03 <zombie67> TM, I will try to get the chip shipped sometime this week.

20:03 <Tank_Master> the sooner the better :P

20:03 <Tank_Master> but there really isnt a rush

20:03 <Tank_Master> should cost less than $2 to usps it at the cheepest rate

20:04 <KathrynM> I don't get it.  I definitely installed Fedora x64

20:04 <Tank_Master> oh, and keep the thermal greese

20:04 <Tank_Master> I got tones here

20:09 <zombie67> k

20:15 <PovAddict> hmm

20:15 <PovAddict> but that PAE stuff mentioned is only to make 32-bit see more than 4GB

20:15 <PovAddict> 64-bit should be already able to

20:16 <KathrynM> no, the part about the mobo

20:16 <KathrynM> that's the mobo brand I have

20:16 <KathrynM> I only know because they gave me the box

20:18 <Soul_keeper> do you have integrated graphics ?

20:21 * Soul_keeper stays out of it

20:22 * PovAddict wants to organize projects

20:22 <Soul_keeper> PovAddict, are you qualified to do that ?

20:22 * CoderForLife wants one project to work well

20:24 <KathrynM> there's a nvidia card in there.  Uh, 9600GT maybe?

20:26 <Soul_keeper>   that exact motherboard ?

20:26 <Romulus> <> (at

20:27 <KathrynM> no.  it has an intel c2q in it

20:28 <KathrynM> I'll have to look at it later.  Gotta get ready for w*@^

20:31 <Soul_keeper> A bios update might fix it, but there are work arounds for buggy bios's if you roll up you sleeves and recompile the kernel,   i'd recommend the former first

20:33 <PovAddict> zombie67: ping

20:33 <zombie67> sup?

20:43 <Soul_keeper> geeze when will the jews stop with their pursuit of revenge ?  87yr old bed ridden man accused of being a nazi prison guard, being exported to germany to stand trial

20:56 <Soul_keeper> so they make "fun color diabetes testers" for kids now, they look like those pokeimon things or whatever

21:01 <PovAddict> I want to make a database of BOINC project details

21:02 <PovAddict> I don't know how to make "properties" general enough... for example, "research area = biology"... not all projects do "research"!

21:12 <zombie67> tasks = biology

21:13 <zombie67> work = biology

21:13 <PovAddict> I read that the best way to come up with a good "format" is to try and use it

21:14 <PovAddict> we call it "work" - let's try to tag all projects with it... and *that's

21:14 <PovAddict> we call it "work" - let's try to tag all projects with it... and *that's* when we may notice it's not good enough, because it doesn't fit some project :)

21:16 *** efc has joined #boinc

21:16 <zombie67> all projects do "work"

21:30 <MTughan> Tank_Master, zombie67: You were talking about QX6700 steppings before.

21:31 <zombie67> yes?

21:31 <MTughan> The QX6700 only came in the B3 stepping. It was the Q6600 that came in B3 and G0 steppings.

21:31 <zombie67> ah

21:34 <MTughan> On the Q6600 at least, as TM already said, it increased the OC potential. It also lowered the rated TDP from 105W to 95W. That probably helped the OC as well.

21:34 <zombie67> good to know

22:45 <jasong> sorry, just felt the need to complain

22:49 <Soul_keeper> zombie67, I don't think so, I heard the kind of data wasn't as well suited for paralelism

22:50 <zombie67> looks like something is up at Reversi

22:50 <jasong> like what?

22:50 <PovAddict> similarly, there may be algorithms that are so suited to stream processors (GPUs) that it's a waste to make a CPU version (since you could use the CPU for apps that are bad at GPUs)

22:50 <zombie67> maybe a sign of work in the future

22:50 <PovAddict> best use of resources

23:13 *** infinisoft has quit IRC

23:24 <MTughan> Well...

23:24 <MTughan> Some girls just drew a giant penis on the ground with chalk, and wrote that their floor "rocks the cock." o_O

23:24 <MTughan> It's an adolescence thing.

23:25 <MTughan> And no, I am no on their floor.

23:25 <MTughan> not*

23:27 <MTughan> And now some people from the floor below are throwing water balloons on it...

23:27 <PovAddict> what time is it?

23:27 <MTughan> 11:30PM.

23:28 <MTughan> They threw three balloons before, thought they were done... They just returned with about 20 more. xD

23:29 <MTughan> And my grandmother comes online on Skype... Just as I'm talking about a giant penis.

23:31 <zombie67> er....hard to "swallow", but your grandma is no virgin.  Otherwise you wouldn't be here.  ;)

23:31 <MTughan> I know that.

23:32 <zombie67> the POINT

23:32 <MTughan> Doesn't exactly help in this situation.

23:32 <zombie67> is that may have been her, back in the day

23:32 <MTughan> Also, something I neglected to mention: the penis is pointing what look to be a pair of breasts, with multicoloured fluid coming out the end...

23:33 <MTughan> I don't want to know what the heck it's supposed to be, 'cause it sure ain't natural.

23:34 <jasong> What are the best chips being made at now? 32 or 45nm?

23:34 <MTughan> Sorry if this is outside what's considered family friendly... xD

23:34 <MTughan> 45nm, 32 should be out by the end of the year.

23:35 <jasong> I just read something that said in about 5 years they'll be able to etch chips with connections about 2 or 3 nanometers wide

23:35 <MTughan> Great, and they just lit a firework on the nuts...

23:36 <jasong>

23:37 <MTughan> 17-19 year olds, bored out of their minds from exams and studying, with some chalk and fireworks...

23:37 <MTughan> Welcome to my world.

23:49 <PovAddict> is there a Programmers Anomymous? staying up late even when feeling tired (like right now) and knowing it's bad sounds like an addiction to me
