00:47 <Tank_Master> a) not a fan of gskill b) why do you need ddr2 1100 ram?

00:48 <Soul_keeper> why not

00:48 <Soul_keeper> my ram right now tops out at like 850-900  a little more would be nice

00:49 <Soul_keeper> no point buying something that's clocked 20% lower, if the price difference isn't really that large

00:49 <Tank_Master> depends on if your mobo can support that speed

00:50 <Soul_keeper> not for me

00:50 <Soul_keeper> everything is overclocked so that's a way of life for me

00:51 <Soul_keeper> I think i'll order that mem tonight

09:11 <Pinchiukas> Ok, I set boinc not to use more than 15% of cpu memory and it stared THREE processes that each uses more than that.

09:11 <Pinchiukas> Once it started six.

09:11 <Pinchiukas> What the fuck?!

09:11 <wdsmia> asks Pinchiukas to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.

09:22 <Pinchiukas> Ok now it reached 190MB, which is more than 15% and started a second process.

10:41 *** jackygrahamez has joined #boinc

10:41 <jackygrahamez> any idea what causes app exit status: 0x80?

10:43 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

10:44 <hawmps> don't recall seeing that one before...

10:44 <hawmps> which app?

10:48 *** Nickuwo has joined #boinc

10:50 <Soul_keeper> boinc_core_release_6_6_20/lib/md5.c:0x80, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0,

10:50 <Soul_keeper> that's the only file with 0x80 in it from grepping the source

10:52 <jackygrahamez> it errors on some newer windows platforms running the python

10:52 <hawmps> &boincerr 128

10:52 <Romulus> hawmps: Error: I couldn't find 128 in boincerr.

10:52 <jackygrahamez> I'm going to try sliming down this archive removing unnecessary files

10:52 <hawmps> &boincerr -128

10:52 <Romulus> hawmps: permanent upload error

10:55 <hawmps> An exit code 128 probably indicates a truncated download of the file. ...

10:55 <hawmps> The "Result exited with zero status but no 'finished' file" error can mean ..... (0x80) - exit code 128

10:56 <hawmps> there is a couple of them..

11:30 <Nickuwo> nice

11:30 <jackygrahamez> what's this Colbert joke?

11:31 <jackygrahamez> Are you talking about eating Ewoks?

11:32 <Nickuwo> yes, among others :)

11:33 <Tank_Master> what joke?

11:35 <Tank_Master> I see DD@H still aint working :(

11:35 <Tank_Master> its erroring out quicker though

11:35 <Tank_Master> I guess thats a good thing :P

11:38 *** Chaot_s has quit IRC

11:44 <Soul_keeper>    nothing to get about it imo

11:45 <Soul_keeper> don' you like that when someone makes you have to google about whatever junk they're talking about ?

11:45 <Nickuwo> lol

11:45 <Nickuwo> awesome

11:48 <hawmps> jeez.. two weeks in Mexico and all I got was a brief allergy.

11:48 <Nickuwo> buzzkill

11:48 <hawmps> ya think?

11:50 <Nickuwo> apparently catching the flu now is a good thing... might be immune when it mutates into a real nasty fucker

12:20 <Nickuwo> hmm, why wont ofstream create files inside directories that dont exist?

12:20 <Nickuwo> permissions?

12:20 <Romulus> hmm... permissions are still screwy, Nickuwo

12:20 <Nickuwo> no shit rommie

12:20 <wdsmia> asks Nickuwo to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.

12:24 <PovAddict> Nickuwo: fopen doesn't do it either; nothing will create a file inside a directory that doesn't exist

12:24 <PovAddict> create the directory first

12:24 <Nickuwo> hm

12:25 <Nickuwo> ok thx

12:32 <PovAddict> I need a project with relatively low RAM reqs, and large deadline (compared to its runtime), for a computer that runs few hours a day

12:32 *** [B^S]renemayer has joined #boinc

12:32 <PovAddict> also, checkpoints

12:33 <FreeLarry> humm i note that my dual kernal panics about the same time as netsplits or other problems showing with internet connection - maybe part of problems but on reboot sometimes show a clock sync error on cpu also

12:33 <FreeLarry> einstien binary? pov

12:35 <PovAddict> Pentium IV 3.0GHz, HT enabled (but I may disable it...), 512MB RAM (but not a dedicated cruncher, must leave plenty of RAM free for real use), running few hours a day

12:35 <PovAddict> WinXP 32-bit

12:37 <FreeLarry> binary was showing 1 minute checkpointing on the few i looked at

12:37 <FreeLarry> not sure about memory usage tho

12:37 <Soul_keeper> lol you people must be really lonely

12:37 <FreeLarry> also not sure if einstien allows selection of binary units only

12:38 <FreeLarry> Soul_keeper your probably right - but then body doesn't allow a lot of running around anymore here

12:38 <MTughan> I'm programming a remote... You bet I'm bored.

13:47 <MTughan> The daily starts about 17:00 UTC, and everything's done by 18:00 UTC.

13:47 <dp> ~15 minutes?

14:08 <mweltin> dengue is not good

14:08 <PovAddict> and who's talking about it?

14:09 <jackygrahamez> But I thought Dengue was a slow and chronic disease

14:09 <mweltin> no

14:09 <mweltin> viral

14:09 <mweltin> there are four kinds of dengue

14:09 <jackygrahamez> There is speculation that Darwin suffered from it

14:09 <PovAddict> if, after getting cured, you get infected again, you *will* die

14:09 <mweltin> one very deadly

14:09 <jackygrahamez> that's right

14:10 <jackygrahamez> oh wait I'm thinking of chagas

14:13 <FreeLarry> humm not from what i just read there PovAddict

14:13 <Tank_Master> howdy FL

14:14 <FreeLarry> but bleeding not good - and appears to be harder to pass as not airborne

14:14 <PovAddict> second time will be the hemorrhagic variant

14:14 <FreeLarry> howdy Tank_Master

14:15 <mweltin> you get it from mosquitoes and it can spread fast.

14:15 <mweltin> the fourth variety is the deadly one.  The other two you can die from if left untreated.

14:16 <FreeLarry> true but malaria the same way

14:16 <Tank_Master> death to mosquitoes!

14:16 <mweltin> the first kind you just feel like you want to die.

14:17 <mweltin> I thought I had it once.

14:17 <jackygrahamez> I'm glad I live in a climate that is cold for mosquitos half the year

14:17 <Tank_Master> o0

14:17 <Tank_Master> lol

14:17 <Tank_Master> agreed

14:18 <mweltin> I got real sick, the characteristic rash, everything but the fever.

14:19 <FreeLarry> sounds more like alcohol excess ;)

14:19 <Tank_Master> :)

14:19 * FreeLarry can get alcohol poisoning from using the wrong mouth rinse after brushing

14:20 <Tank_Master> lol

16:07 <yoyo[RKN]> so it may be a problem if a ecm requires 2,5GB?

16:08 <PovAddict> I think you can't distribute such work to a 32-bit Windows machine

17:21 <wdsmia> re-hi

17:30 <CoderForLife> hello wdsmia

17:30 <wdsmia> *lo CoderForLife

17:33 <CoderForLife> so on which Linux distros should I test my boinc app?  what platforms?  All I have so far is windows_intelx86 and i686-pc-linux-gnu.

17:34 <PovAddict> dp would ask for BSD :P

17:34 <CoderForLife> so probably windows_x86_64 and x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

17:35 <PovAddict> yep those seem to be naturally the ones to do next

17:35 <PovAddict> I tried to cross-compile my science app to Windows, from Linux

17:35 <PovAddict> nicolas@ubuntu ~> i586-mingw32msvc-gcc --version

17:35 <PovAddict> i586-mingw32msvc-gcc (GCC) 4.2.1-sjlj (mingw32-2)

17:36 <PovAddict> succeeded at the "compiling" part... but when I tried to test it (with Wine), it crashed

17:36 <CoderForLife> um - that's a bit unique

17:36 <PovAddict> and winedbg sucks, so I think I'll need a real Windows system if I really want to debug the problem

17:36 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: yeah it's quite "interesting"

22:14 <jackygrahamez_> hi zombie now some people are running ok

22:14 <zombie67> ?

22:14 <PovAddict> zombie67: XP or Vista?

22:14 <zombie67> XP

22:14 <PovAddict> &whatis data directory on XP

22:14 <Romulus> PovAddict: Error: No factoid matches that key.

22:14 <PovAddict> &whatis data dir on XP

22:14 <Romulus> PovAddict: Error: No factoid matches that key.

22:14 <jackygrahamez_> xp for sure, I need to check vista

22:14 <PovAddict> so what did I call it

22:14 <PovAddict> &whatis data directory on Windows XP

22:14 <Romulus> PovAddict: "data directory on Windows XP" could be BOINC 6.x on XP keeps data in C:\Documents and settings\All users\Application Data\BOINC (note Application Data may be translated)

22:15 <Tank_Master> just failed on my win7

22:15 <zombie67> ah, same place

22:15 <zombie67> okay

22:15 <zombie67> jack, I am not sure I understand your directions

22:16 <zombie67> I don't have a task currently running.  Do I need to have one?

22:16 <jackygrahamez_> I'll be more clear, can you run it in the commandline boinc --exit_after_finish ?

22:16 <zombie67> I assume so

22:16 <jackygrahamez_> that way it will terminate

22:17 <zombie67> but I need a task to run, right?

22:17 <jackygrahamez_> then navigate to the data directoryk see above from Romulus

22:17 <zombie67> do You have a test task or something?

22:17 <jackygrahamez_> you keep getting them regularly right?

22:17 <zombie67> I have 15 different machines....

22:17 <Tank_Master> every WU errors out, yes

22:17 <PovAddict> no, wait...

22:17 <PovAddict> running BOINC with such a switch on Windows is kinda tricky

22:18 <PovAddict> user accounts and stuff

22:18 <zombie67> normally someone emails me a task, and then I run it from the command line

22:18 <zombie67> if they want me to debug

22:18 <jackygrahamez_> ok I'll assign one to you then, hold on

22:19 <Tank_Master> cant rename jack's fuchup file

22:19 <Tank_Master> :)

22:20 <zombie67> ugh, this machine currently has 32 slots

22:20 <jackygrahamez_> nameautodock_mgl_1240971585

22:20 <zombie67> it's a quad core

22:20 <jackygrahamez_> actually I have an interface you can use to submit

22:20 <PovAddict> lol zombie67

22:20 <zombie67> jack, is this docking or the new project you are talking about?

22:21 <jackygrahamez_> DD@H

22:21 <zombie67> okay

22:21 <zombie67> so, how do I upload this task, without BOINC automatically running it right away?

22:22 <PovAddict> brb

22:22 <jackygrahamez_> when you use the --exit_after_finish switch it kills boinc

22:22 <jackygrahamez_> so you can go in and test things manually

22:22 <zombie67> sorry, I meant, how do I download it?

22:23 <jackygrahamez_> ok so it should automatically download

22:23 <jackygrahamez_> or if you are waiting

22:23 <jackygrahamez_> while in command line

22:23 <zombie67> but then BOINC will automatically crunch it before I have a chance to run the command line

22:24 <jackygrahamez_> open another command line and run boinccmd --project update

22:24 * wdsmia goes to feed the sea monsters living in the fish tank

22:25 <Tank_Master> well miss ya

22:25 <Tank_Master> seomwhat

22:25 *** ChanServ sets mode: +o wdsmia

22:26 <zombie67> okay, let's take a step back.  I've never run command line BOINC from windows before.  Only unix and linux

22:26 <jackygrahamez_> ok I'll start from the beginning. Close out BOINC manager, open command line and navigate to the boinc directory, type boinc --exit_after_finish, then open another command window, navigate to the same directory, boinccmd --project update

22:26 <Romulus> Title: DrugDiscovery@Home (at

22:26 <jackygrahamez_> when you close boinc manager you may need to kill all boinc processes currently running

22:27 <zombie67> got it

22:27 <zombie67> new problem

22:27 <zombie67> apparently the application is not in the same dir as the slots

22:27 <zombie67> lemme find it

22:27 <jackygrahamez_> is it vista ?

22:28 <zombie67> no XP64

22:28 <Tank_Master> xp x64

22:28 <zombie67> found it

22:28 <zombie67> it's in program files

22:28 <jackygrahamez_> right, where is the data directory?

22:28 <zombie67> user document

22:28 <zombie67> Dosc & settings/all users/application data/BOINC

22:29 <zombie67> they are in separate places now

22:29 <jackygrahamez_> yes these newer versions are a bit annoying with that

22:29 <jackygrahamez_> thats life

22:29 <zombie67> okay

22:30 <zombie67> here I go

22:30 <jackygrahamez_> I just sent you another

22:31 <Tank_Master> oh hey, can I have one that works?

22:31 <Tank_Master> :P

22:32 <jackygrahamez_> what host id?

22:32 <zombie67> got it

22:32 <zombie67> python.exe - Unable to locate component

22:32 <jackygrahamez_> that's what it says in the command line?

22:33 <zombie67> this app has failed to shart because MSVCR71.dll was not found

22:33 <zombie67> no a popup

22:33 <Tank_Master> ahhhh

22:33 <jackygrahamez_> ahh

22:33 <Tank_Master> the infamus dll issue

22:33 <jackygrahamez_> so

22:33 <jackygrahamez_> you don't have the dll

22:33 <Tank_Master> nope

22:33 <zombie67> btw, that ran all by itself.  I never had the chance to run the commands you PM'd me

22:34 <jackygrahamez_> would there be a violation in license if i sent that dll?

22:34 <Tank_Master> other projects have as a temp solution

22:34 <zombie67> you could put it on the front page that the DLL is required

22:35 <zombie67> does that mean I need to install that DLL on all my machines?

22:35 <zombie67> ugh

22:35 <zombie67> I will if I have to

22:35 <zombie67> just hoping there is an easier solution

22:37 <zombie67> who?  me build pyghin?

22:37 <jackygrahamez_> maintaining another platform is just a challenge

22:40 <zombie67> so....what's the plan?  New app version with the DLL included?

22:41 <jackygrahamez_> Unless the District Attorney files suit

22:41 <zombie67> Also, I remembered that I had turned off pop-ups on my windows machines.  probably why I did not see any problems from my end.  I will turn them back on for a couple machines.

22:42 <Tank_Master> I didnt see any pop-ups on win7

22:42 <Tank_Master> and I never confered any of that

22:42 <zombie67> TM, you were getting the same problems?

23:10 * Tank_Master thinks jackygrahamez_ is off screing with some other part of his app

23:10 <zombie67> and you still had the problem tank?

23:10 <zombie67> sorry, ignore

23:10 <zombie67> I think jack is asleep....11:11 PM there

23:11 <Tank_Master> nope. got a new prob now

23:11 <Tank_Master> no work avalible

23:12 <bigt0242000> ok i'm confused. it would normally be there if 1.1 was installed wouldn't it?

23:12 <Tank_Master> nope

23:12 <PovAddict> 1.1 what?

23:12 <Tank_Master> not not appart of the .net framework

23:12 <bigt0242000> .net

23:12 <PovAddict> you don't need .net for any of this

23:12 <jackygrahamez_> im back

23:12 <bigt0242000> that dll is part of the .net framework

23:12 <Tank_Master> there he his

23:13 <jackygrahamez_> I was just writting in the forums how everything is working perfectly right?

23:13 <Tank_Master> did you bring back some work with you?

23:13 <PovAddict> no it's not, it's part of the Visual C++ runtime

23:13 <PovAddict> msvcr71 is Microsoft Visual C runtime 7.1

23:14 <Tank_Master> pov is correct, big

23:14 <jackygrahamez_> it keeps generating work automatically but if you need some assigned, give me your id Tank

23:14 <jackygrahamez_> your host id

23:15 <zombie67> tank's just a credit whore

23:15 <PovAddict> &grab zombie67

23:15 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.

23:15 <zombie67> heh

23:15 <zombie67> UGH!  My dog just beefed a SBD!

23:15 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez_: you need to recompile python itself with an older C runtime (older Visual Studio), or bundle the DLL with your app (but I'm not sure if M$ lets you)

23:15 <zombie67> NASTY

23:16 <Tank_Master> hot ID?

23:17 <Tank_Master> host*

23:17 <jackygrahamez_> I'm not sure I can get that done tonight

23:17 <Tank_Master>

23:17 <Romulus> <> (at

23:17 <bigt0242000> sure they allow you to

23:17 <zombie67> tank:  edit your post

23:18 <zombie67> you meant to type "weren't"

23:18 <Tank_Master> so I forgot the '

23:18 <zombie67> you forgot the n't

23:19 <Tank_Master> no, I fixed that b4 I posted it

23:19 <Tank_Master> huh, guss it didnt take

23:19 <Tank_Master> odd

23:21 <jackygrahamez_> i got that too earlier

23:21 <Tank_Master> woot, got one WU.. :P

23:22 <Tank_Master> and one saying it wont resend cus its expiered?!?

23:22 <zombie67> slowpoke

23:22 <zombie67> brb

23:22 <Tank_Master> guess so

23:22 <jackygrahamez_> what was the reason for rebuilding python again?

23:23 <jackygrahamez_> I'm feeling a bit slow right now

23:23 <Tank_Master> to include the dll inside the app

23:23 <Tank_Master> 20:15 PovAddict jackygrahamez_: you need to recompile python itself with an older C runtime (older Visual Studio), or bundle the DLL with your app (but I'm not sure if M$ lets you)

23:23 <jackygrahamez_> ahh because having external is a license issue?

23:23 <PovAddict> redistrubution is sometimes a problem

23:23 <Tank_Master> no, so you dont need to send the dll seperate

23:23 <PovAddict> I don't think it will be for that DLL

23:24 <Tank_Master> crunch3r may know

23:24 <PovAddict> but, for example, the Common Controls DLL is not redistributable (commctl32.dll)

23:25 <jackygrahamez_> no reason other than license though?

23:25 <PovAddict> yes; it has code copyrighted by Microsoft after all

23:25 <PovAddict> "According to the redist.txt file installed by my copy of VS.NET 2003, msvcr71.dll is redistributable"

23:26 <zombie67> jack, has this issue been fixed?

23:26 <Romulus> <> (at

23:26 <bigt0242000> from the M$ c run-time lib page "the application should keep a copy of msvcr71.dll in its application directory with the program executable"

23:26 <zombie67> I ask because I want to know if I should allow my macs to get new work yet

23:27 <jackygrahamez_> I'm not using that application version anymore. We got mac platforms for autodock_mgl

23:27 <jackygrahamez_> try it

23:27 <zombie67> k

23:27 <jackygrahamez_> give me a host

23:27 <zombie67> 86

23:28 <zombie67> as in agent 86

23:28 <zombie67> ;)

23:28 <Tank_Master> wtf, timed out, no repsonce, butzombie's host got the WU?

23:28 <Tank_Master>

23:28 <Romulus> <> (at

23:29 <Tank_Master> strange, z picked it up after me to

23:29 <jackygrahamez_> I tested this versions on ppc and intel

23:29 <zombie67> downloading

23:29 <zombie67> can I ask for one more task to test on my ppc?  86 is intel

23:30 <Tank_Master> woot, new task

23:30 <zombie67> ppc is 81

23:30 <jackygrahamez_> your wish is my command

23:30 <Tank_Master> lol

23:30 <PovAddict> &quotegrabs get 39

23:30 <Romulus> PovAddict: <zombie67> tank's just a credit whore (Said by: zombie67!; grabbed by PovAddict! at 11:15 PM, April 28, 2009)

23:30 <Tank_Master> in that case, can you assign 5000 WUs to me? :D

23:32 <jackygrahamez_> well I'll have a way you can do that soon

23:32 <zombie67> DAMN!  This dog is making the paint peal!

23:32 <Tank_Master> lol z

23:32 <Tank_Master> open a window

23:32 <zombie67> can't see....eyes...blurring...

23:32 <jackygrahamez_> me too

23:33 <Tank_Master> your making the paint peal to?

23:33 <zombie67> okay, the two tasks are running now

23:33 <jackygrahamez_> brb

23:33 <Tank_Master> ok

23:34 * PovAddict adds to zombie67's dog's task

23:35 <zombie67> hmmm

23:36 <zombie67> the CPU meter on the PPC is looking odd

23:36 <zombie67> normally the system is like a percent or two.  and the NICE % is the BOINC stuff

23:37 <zombie67> usually all the rest

23:37 <zombie67> with this task, it is running about 90% system

23:37 <PovAddict> disk activity?

23:37 <zombie67> that is usually the sign of a problem

23:37 <zombie67> no CPU

23:37 <PovAddict> system means kernel

23:37 <zombie67> yes

23:38 <Tank_Master> how long into the WU r u?

23:38 <jackygrahamez_> back

23:38 <PovAddict> which means a high amount of system calls, which usually means disk access but it could mean other things

23:38 <Tank_Master> first min or so is unpacking stuff

23:38 <zombie67> Ah!  And the CPU time is still showing nothing, just the "---"

23:39 <jackygrahamez_> both macs?

23:39 <zombie67> okay, I will let it keep going and give an update in a few min

23:39 <zombie67> no, just the PPC

23:39 <PovAddict> zombie67: what process is using all the (system)CPU?

23:40 <zombie67> unzip is 47% and kernel taks is the same

23:40 <PovAddict> so that's it, unzip

23:40 <PovAddict> still extracting

23:40 <jackygrahamez_> can you nav to the data directory on ppc I think its under /Library/Application Support

23:40 <zombie67> how BIG is this thing?!

23:40 <zombie67> been going on for minutes

23:40 <Tank_Master> 53 GB

23:40 <Tank_Master> hehe

23:41 <zombie67> joke or serious?

23:41 <Tank_Master> yes

23:41 <zombie67> ?

23:41 <Tank_Master> joke

23:42 <zombie67> still going....

23:42 <Tank_Master> and going...

23:42 <zombie67> 6 minutes now

23:42 <jackygrahamez_> The ppc zip is 33MB

23:42 <Tank_Master> slow drive?

23:42 <zombie67> you mean like an 8-track??

23:43 <jackygrahamez_> if you navigate to the slot directory you can tail the stderr.txt

23:43 <jackygrahamez_> using terminal

23:45 <jackygrahamez_> your mac intel worked

23:45 <Tank_Master> lol

23:45 <Tank_Master> his mac took 106 sec

23:45 <Tank_Master> my atom took 560 sec

23:46 <zombie67>

23:46 <Romulus> <> (at

23:46 <zombie67> grr

23:46 <zombie67> ignore

23:46 <Tank_Master> err his took 168

23:46 <zombie67> wrapper starting

23:46 <Tank_Master> my bad

23:46 <zombie67> running unzip

23:46 <zombie67> wrapper running unzip

23:46 <zombie67> that is what tail is telling me

23:47 <jackygrahamez_> tail -f stderr.txt

23:47 <zombie67> I am going to quit /restart BOINC

23:47 <jackygrahamez_> wait

23:47 <zombie67> okay

23:47 <zombie67> same output...but I am not getting my prompt back

23:47 <jackygrahamez_> is the directory MGLToolsPcks there? If so what subfolders

23:47 <jackygrahamez_> ?

23:47 <jackygrahamez_> ctrl+C

23:48 <zombie67> sure

23:48 <PovAddict> zombie67: "tail -f" keeps watching the file

23:48 <PovAddict> and will update if something new appears at the end of it

23:48 <zombie67> like I said, just those three lines

23:48 <jackygrahamez_> ok

23:48 <zombie67> something is stuck

23:48 <PovAddict> thats why you don't get the prompt back

23:49 <zombie67> the unzip task has maxed the CPU, but completing

23:49 <jackygrahamez_> just curious if anything unpacked, I may need to update these unzip binaries

23:49 <zombie67> what is inside the package?

23:49 <Tank_Master> p0rn

23:49 <zombie67> w00t!

23:50 <Tank_Master> :)

23:50 <jackygrahamez_> MGLToolsPckgs & Python25

23:50 <zombie67> nope, neither files are in the dir

23:50 <jackygrahamez_> ok that answers that

23:50 <zombie67> lemme try quitting/restarting

23:50 <jackygrahamez_> ok

23:52 <zombie67> same thing

23:52 <zombie67> lemme try rebooting, jut to make sure

23:52 <PovAddict> nah it's just his app that sucks :P

23:52 <Tank_Master> propbably

23:52 <jackygrahamez_> PovAddict is right

23:52 <Tank_Master> lol

23:53 <zombie67> AHHQ

23:53 <zombie67> it looks like it is trying to download am application via safari

23:53 <PovAddict> huh

23:53 <Tank_Master> o0

23:53 <zombie67> webplayer-ppc

23:53 <PovAddict> why would BOINC try to do that?

23:54 <jackygrahamez_> wtf?

23:54 <Tank_Master> cus its so perfict it know everything

23:54 <Tank_Master> boinc?

23:54 <Romulus> I guess boinc is all perfect and stuff, Tank_Master

23:55 <jackygrahamez_> Shutup Romulus!

23:55 <zombie67> wait

23:55 <Tank_Master> lol

23:55 <bigt0242000> lol

23:55 <zombie67> maybe something else was trying to do that.  there were like 10 attempts!  safari was waiting for me to tell it okay.

23:55 <zombie67> I am rebooting

23:56 <zombie67> will run BOINC fresh and see if the DL tries to happen again

23:56 <zombie67> perhaps they are not related

23:58 <zombie67> they were unrelated

23:58 <zombie67> but the problem still exists.  cannot unzip

23:58 <jackygrahamez_> do you have a native unzip program to darwin?

23:59 <jackygrahamez_> can you unzip that archive with it?

23:59 <zombie67> er, yeah, I think so

23:59 <zombie67> lemme try

23:59 <Tank_Master> woot, 3 WUs at once!!

23:59 <Tank_Master> :D

23:59 <PovAddict> credit whore

23:59 <Tank_Master> damn right

23:59 <PovAddict> I bet you don't even care what the WUs do
