00:03 *** wdsmia has quit IRC

00:05 <Tank_Master> ill bbl

00:13 <zombie67> tank, which version of boinc?

00:46 *** xionyc has quit IRC

01:00 *** MTughan_ has quit IRC

01:02 <zombie67> odd

01:02 <zombie67> quiet night

01:03 <MTughan> Indeed.

01:03 <Tank_Master> yeah

01:03 <zombie67> odd for a saturday

01:03 <Tank_Master> jack is in hiding

01:03 <zombie67> that too

01:03 <MTughan> Still having BSODs on the Win7 comp... Can't wait until Tuesday to do a clean install of the RC.

01:05 <PovAddict> you mean the new RC?

01:05 <MTughan> Yes.

01:05 <MTughan> Public availability on May 5th, although I think Technet and MSDN people have it already.

01:05 *** synapt has quit IRC

01:06 <Tank_Master> theres only been on RC

01:06 <Tank_Master> one*

01:07 <PovAddict> yesterday I got an email named "Announcing the Release Candidate"

01:07 <Tank_Master> nvidia released new drivers today or yesterday

01:07 <Tank_Master> for xp/vista/win7

01:07 <Tank_Master> itll have full support for win7

01:07 <MTughan> It'll? Not "It does"?

01:08 <Tank_Master> meah

01:08 <Tank_Master> whichever :P

01:08 *** XioNYC has joined #boinc

01:09 <MTughan> I was wondering, because if the drivers have been released (past tense), how can they have support for OS (future tense)? :P

01:11 <Tank_Master> yeah, yeah, noticed that after I hit enter

01:14 *** PovAddict has quit IRC

01:16 <zombie67> if one is developing to a spec, it is easy to have a driver out before the OS

01:16 <MTughan> I know, but I was just bugging him for improper grammar. :P

01:21 <zombie67> in fact, it is hard to develop the OS without the drivers...  ;)

01:22 <Tank_Master> its also hard to develope drivers w/o an os

01:22 <MTughan> Microsoft develops the OS first, the drivers came later.

01:46 <zombie67> and how does MSFT test their OS w/o drivers?

01:47 <zombie67> normally there is a "train"

01:47 * PovAddict downloads 52MB of development libraries

01:47 <PovAddict> "Need to download 52.9MB of archives. After unpacking 280MB will be used."

01:47 <PovAddict> blooooat

01:49 <zombie67> for what?

01:49 <PovAddict> KDE PIM libraries

01:49 <zombie67> PIM?

01:49 <zombie67> like calendar and stuff?

01:49 <PovAddict> yup

01:50 <zombie67> ah

09:21 <CoderForLife> yeah

10:29 <ELGono> moo dudes

10:31 <ELGono> just was distracted from work by a steam locomative passing by

10:31 <ELGono> locomotive

10:31 <CoderForLife> Locomotive Breath

10:32 <CoderForLife> the answer to our w@#% lunchtime trivia question last Friday

10:32 <ELGono> noisy iron beast

10:32 <CoderForLife> a song was playing in the restaurant

10:33 <CoderForLife> the questions:  what group?  what song?

10:33 <CoderForLife> I got it right

10:33 <ELGono> oh dear

10:33 <ELGono> i would use a telephone ;)

10:33 <ELGono> iirc our university has developed a service

10:34 <ELGono> just point your phone to speakers and song is being analysed and compared to database

10:34 <ELGono> and hands out artist and songtitle

10:34 <CoderForLife> I compared it to my cerebral database

10:35 <ELGono> hehe maybe also a "get as ringtone for tons of buckz" button

10:42 * CoderForLife finally get frustrated and rolls his desk chair out of the room to fix it

10:44 <ELGono> could you please fix mine too?

10:49 <CoderForLife> upon further investigation, it's permanently broken - time to order a new chair

10:50 <CoderForLife> meanwhile - back to Coding

11:45 <xcamel> meanwhile, back to eating lunch

11:46 <xcamel> Jethro Tull, of course

11:47 <Nickuwo> you're eating jethro tull?

11:52 <xcamel> not recently...

12:12 <CoderForLife> back

19:47 <Tank_Master> kids?

19:47 <Romulus> hmm... kids are amused this morning. We had snow on the ground, Tank_Master

19:47 <Tank_Master> o0

19:47 <efc> Storm

19:48 <Tank_Master> ah

19:49 <Tank_Master> of p0rnoriffic proprtions?

19:50 <jackygrahamez> I wish I had monday off

19:50 <Tank_Master> lol

19:50 <efc> Apparently survival is unlikely

19:51 <efc> And our ZPM is depleted

19:51 <jackygrahamez> }oo{

19:51 <Tank_Master> heh

19:52 <Tank_Master> dont worry, theres enough for this one time, then youll find areplacement thatll put you back in the same situation

19:53 <efc> I'm glad our enemies are evil enough to be threatening but dumb enough we can defeat them in an our.

19:53 <Tank_Master> yeah

19:53 <Tank_Master> that is nice

20:03 <CoderForLife> All Your Base Are Belong To Us

20:14 <efc> That destruction was very underwhelming

20:14 <Tank_Master> lol

20:15 <efc> hard rain and a little wind for a minute

20:17 <CoderForLife> total destruction requires use of a C compiler

20:18 * CoderForLife pokes through the remains of his Code

20:22 * wdsmia fixes a 14 oz Top sirlon, twice backed potato, and spring pasta salad

20:23 <Tank_Master> twice backed?

20:23 <Tank_Master> hope its not backed by the gov

20:23 * wdsmia slaps his fingers

20:23 <Tank_Master> :D

20:23 <CoderForLife> NY Strip Sirloin tomorrow night for me - business dinner

20:23 <Tank_Master> nice

20:24 <CoderForLife> yeah, except the "business" part

20:24 <Tank_Master> true

20:24 <Tank_Master> though that means you dont pay for it

20:24 <CoderForLife> There's No Such Thing As A Free Dinner

20:25 <Tank_Master> there is according to the government

20:25 <CoderForLife> as the client, we are being taken to dinner in thanks for the consulting engagement that starts tomorrow

20:26 <CoderForLife> so - in reality we pay for dinner

20:26 <Tank_Master> lol

20:28 <efc> Our travel stinks, often have to go on our own time, and get about $100 a day for hotel food etc, if you can't get it under that, tough luck

20:28 <Tank_Master> ouch

20:29 <Tank_Master> tough titty

20:29 <CoderForLife> your "per diem" is more like "per dime"

20:29 <efc> apparently traveling is a perk and we have to be punished for it

20:33 <efc> you don't actually have to travel on your own time, just if you ever want a raise or promotion again

20:37 <CoderForLife> so as you rise in the ranks, you'll need to buy your own private jet?

20:38 <CoderForLife> consultants often travel to assignments on Monday mornings and back home on Friday afternoons

20:39 <efc> We would work all week and travel OYOT on the weekend

20:39 <CoderForLife> barbarism, slavery

20:40 <efc> doesn't make a lot of sense to me since they bill it all to the govt anyway

20:40 <efc> its actually worse

20:40 <CoderForLife> yeah, it could be an accounting firm

20:41 <CoderForLife> E&Y does the travel thing I mentioned, and the project manager gets an enormous amount of money

20:43 <efc> I'm pretty sure the Execs operate on a more favorable regime

20:43 <CoderForLife> I guess the bar had been set for you

20:46 <CoderForLife> time to take out the trash - bbiab

22:13 <jasong> I love how they think it's news to predict the economy is going to start to recover.  It's called regaining equilibrium, boom/bust cycles are inevitable.  Newspeople predicting the economy will recover soon is like me predicting that I'll have gas the day after I eat Mexican food.

22:16 <PovAddict> "Newspeople predicting the economy will recover soon" is an attempt from them to *make it* recover soon

22:17 <PovAddict> if they say it's going to get worse, people will get their money off the banks and sell their shares of companies before it gets worse, and thus it *will* get worse

22:27 <jasong> I've always felt like the best way to get along in this world is to assume any widely held belief is wrong in some sense, in the case of investing, Warren Buffett tends to be paranoid when people feel safe and takes chances when most are paranoid

22:27 <jasong> Warren Buffett is also one of the richest men in the world

22:29 <jasong> Is it true AMD may be attempting to get a bailout?

22:29 <jasong> I heard a rumor about that

22:35 <Tank_Master> o0

22:41 <Tank_Master> I need mroe ships!!

22:42 <Tank_Master> oh, oops, wrong channle

22:43 <jasong> Is it that island game you're talking about?

22:44 <Tank_Master> yeah

22:45 <Tank_Master> they increased the max number of ships and the amount they can cary, but its still not enough

22:50 <jasong> I tried to convince my second cousins to join me in playing the game RuneScape, but they didn't seem interested

22:50 <Tank_Master> bummer

22:51 <jasong> lol, I'm trying to get into the top million overall in that game

22:51 <Tank_Master> hehe

22:51 <jasong> It's probably going to take me at least a month to reach my goal

22:51 <jasong> Maybe longer

22:51 <Tank_Master> not bad

22:51 <jasong> I'm already in the top 2 million and climbing

22:55 <Tank_Master> LOL got some mail here saying "add me! sexyandhot at hotmail"... so I added it to the phishing mail list

22:58 <jasong> good call

23:01 <jasong> How much does it take for a computer to handle email?  Because, I'm wondering how much it would affect spam if everyone could get an email address that only they knew about and were given a way to generate other one use email addies that would forward to the real address without revealing it

23:02 <jasong> If one particular sub-address starts getting spam, just dump the forwarding command for that one

23:02 <PovAddict>

23:02 <PovAddict> send me spam and I'll make it redirect to nowhere instead of to my gmail account

23:02 <jasong> For me?  And I didn't get you anything

23:02 <jasong> ahhh

23:02 <PovAddict> no, it redirects to *my* account

23:03 <jasong> ahhh, ok

23:03 <PovAddict> does, except those I have already blocked :)

23:03 <jasong> You have your own email server?

23:03 <PovAddict> nope, my DNS provider has mail forwarding

23:04 <jasong> nice

23:05 <jasong> We've had our cable network set up for like a decade, it was the best in the state when it was built, but they haven't improved it at all

23:05 <jasong> Now we're somewhere around 33%, I think, with 100% being the absolute best

23:06 <PovAddict> in quality?

23:06 <jasong> Speed, if you're going by quality, we suck way worse than 33%

23:06 <jasong> Or, at least I hope most people don't have to deal with dropped packets like I do

23:08 <PovAddict> dropped packets directly affects speed

23:10 <jasong> I think there may be a short in the connection somewhere, when it rains our connection tends to go down

23:16 <Tank_Master> no fun
