17:11 <MTughan_> Got a break in class... Quiz at 5:30, but we've been out for about 20 minutes now.
17:11 <MTughan_> So what better time passer than IRC? ;)
17:11 <Tank_Master> a hooker?
17:11 <MTughan_> I don't know how I'd look bringing a hooker with me into a classroom...
17:12 <Tank_Master> hehe
17:12 <MTughan_> Just IMO.
17:12 <xcamel> show and tell?
17:12 <MTughan_> If I were doing show and tell, I have my Sennheiser headphones.
17:13 <MTughan_> Which are also another good time passer when combined with a music player.
17:13 <xcamel> great earphones.
17:13 <MTughan_> HD280 Pros. They sound great.
17:14 <xcamel> professional quality... I love Sennheiser
17:14 <MTughan_> Found a good price on them too, $30-100 cheaper than other places.

17:15 <Tank_Master> I got mine from overstock for $50 off the list price
17:16 <xcamel> good deal.
17:17 <Tank_Master> was $175, got them for $125
17:17 <MTughan_> I don't know what the list price for these are in Canada.
17:17 <MTughan_> I was quoted $170 at an audio store. Got them for $130 new at a gaming store, of all places.
17:18 <Tank_Master> lol
17:18 <Tank_Master> nice
17:19 <MTughan_> Don't know what they do to my iPod's battery life, but they seem to be doing okay.

22:15 <FreeLarry58> i have upto 8 processes running on other machines and other quads doing fine
22:15 <RomW> What version of the CC? Are you using the manager?
22:15 <MTughan> My quad's running fine with 6.2.19, but it's had that since the beginning.
22:15 <FreeLarry58> MTughan i got some today but they out now - too many vid cards grabbing all
22:16 <FreeLarry58> 6.6.28 on that machine
22:16 * FreeLarry58 newest on released as of last week i think
22:16 <MTughan> 6.6.29 was released today IIRC, so 6.6.28 would make sense.

22:27 <RomW> oh

22:28 <RomW> I bet if you open up Task Manager it'll only show two processors
22:28 <RomW> oh
22:28 <RomW> its a quad core processor
22:28 <FreeLarry58> shows 4
22:28 <RomW> okay
22:28 <RomW> not a physical processor issue...
22:29 <RomW> Well, still then, what does the CC show for the Data Directory line and Processor line on CC startup?

22:32 <PovAddict> :)
22:32 <MTughan> FreeLarry58: No, the graphical manager shipped with BOINC.
22:32 <FreeLarry58> ah yes in advance view mode mostly
22:33 <RomW> Okay, in the advanced view, launch the preferences dialog...
22:33 <FreeLarry58> k
22:33 <FreeLarry58> never set anything in it so still defaults
22:34 <RomW> What percentages does it show for multi-processor use and CPU time use?
22:34 <FreeLarry58> should i clear to restore web defaults?
22:34 <PovAddict> FreeLarry58: probably that would be the best thing to do, unless you have specific needs for that computer to have different prefs than others
22:35 <FreeLarry58> don't see those lines there RomW
22:35 <MTughan> FreeLarry58: Are you on the processor tab?
22:35 <RomW> They should be at the bottom of the processor usage tab
22:35 <PovAddict> it's at the very bottom of the "processor usage" tab
22:35 <PovAddict> jinx
22:35 <MTughan> You may have to make the window bigger.
22:36 <FreeLarry58> yes onlonly 3 items showing before idle time switch time and weel time lines
22:36 <FreeLarry58> only ting checked is while computer is in use
22:36 <MTughan> Make the window bigger.
22:36 <FreeLarry58> ahh on bottom
22:36 <FreeLarry58> on multi process or 100% use at most 100%
22:37 * PovAddict dives out of BOINC Manager source code
22:38 * FreeLarry58 has small 14 inch monitor on that machine with medium graphic ability
22:38 <PovAddict> FreeLarry58: ahh what screen resolution?
22:38 <RomW> sounds like 640x480
22:39 <Nickuwo> rough
22:39 <PovAddict> that resolution is *unusable* without special low-res-oriented apps nowadays...
22:39 <FreeLarry58> uh oh i just click ok and boinc went to suspend mode for .... benchmarking - looks like it found the other 2 processors
22:39 <RomW> ah
22:39 <RomW> okay
22:39 <FreeLarry58> 1024x768
22:39 <RomW> wierd though
22:40 <PovAddict> last week I installed iTunes on a virtual machine and it complained about res being below 1024x768
22:40 <RomW> It detected 4 processors at startup
22:40 <FreeLarry58> yeah would have thought it would find without user updating prefs
22:41 <PovAddict> maybe it was indeed limited until you pressed Clear (if you did?)
22:41 <FreeLarry58> and it even benchmarked at beginning but didn't find the other two processors
22:41 <FreeLarry58> nope just the ok button to close prefs
22:41 <PovAddict> or...
22:41 <PovAddict> RomW: do new clients completely ignore the old "use at most N processors" setting?
22:41 <FreeLarry58> running 4 now 5 with gpu
22:42 <PovAddict> I'm thinking such a setting might have been still around in some prefs xml, which the advanced prefs dialog rewrote
22:43 <RomW> Pov: might be, although FreeLarry58 said there wasn't a global_prefs_override file in the data directory
22:43 <PovAddict> oh I missed that
22:44 <RomW> So at this point it is anybodies guess
22:46 <FreeLarry58> still no global_prefs_override file in boinc directory
22:46 <FreeLarry58> so where does the prefs file get written?
22:46 <RomW> It shouldn't be there unless something changes in the simple preferences dialog or advanced preferences dialog
22:47 <RomW> the global_prefs.xml file should be in the data directory. it is created the first time you attach to a project
22:48 <FreeLarry58> k so haven't changed anything in preferences so shouldn't be there - attached to projectes via BAM so it shouldn't have been created tehn?
22:49 <PovAddict> you always have a global_prefs.xml
22:49 <PovAddict> it's global_prefs_override.xml that may or may not be there
22:49 <MTughan> We already checked for it.
22:50 <FreeLarry58> have no global anything in that directory
22:50 <PovAddict> weird
22:50 <FreeLarry58> i see no .xml files at all
22:50 <PovAddict> um then that can't be the actual data directory... :/
22:50 <PovAddict> what is there, then?
22:51 <MTughan> FreeLarry58: Windows Explorer by default hides file extensions.
22:54 <FreeLarry58> yeah MTughan just switched on view hidden files and only one more file appeared - extension shown are .dll .yes
22:55 <PovAddict> that's not the data directory then... are you in C:\Program files\BOINC?
22:55 <PovAddict> you should be in C:\ProgramData\BOINC
22:56 <MTughan> Yep, Program Files has some DLL files.
22:57 <PovAddict> ugh it's midnight already?
22:58 <FreeLarry58> PovAddict no c:\ProgramData\Boinc listed in explore tree
22:58 <PovAddict> Vista?
22:58 <Romulus> hmm... Vista is a pain in your native language. It's horrible in one you don't speak or read, PovAddict
22:58 <MTughan> Yes.
22:59 <FreeLarry58> its c:\Program Files\Boinc
22:59 <PovAddict> no, that's a different thing
22:59 <FreeLarry58> ahh hidden directory
22:59 <PovAddict> it's possible ProgramData is hidden... try just pasting C:\ProgramData\BOINC on the location bar
22:59 <MTughan> Yeah, ProgramData is hidden.
22:59 <FreeLarry58> there it they are
23:00 <FreeLarry58> there the global pres and override files
23:01 <FreeLarry58> and override was changed as of today after i clecked ok
23:01 <FreeLarry58> regular one still old date
23:02 * FreeLarry58 feels slower than normal today for not remembering hidden view on windows
23:02 <MTughan> "Surely, you can't be serious." "I am serious. And don't call me Shirley."
23:02 <Nickuwo> awesome
23:08 * FreeLarry58 still is figuring out how to see things in vista that was so easy to see in xp
23:11 <MTughan> "And keep an eye on that number three engine gauge over there. It's running a little hot." *flashing button says "A Little Hot"*
23:23 * XioNYC inflates the auto-pilot
23:28 <RomW> g'night all
23:28 <FreeLarry58> night RomW
23:29 *** RomW has quit IRC
23:30 <FreeLarry58> humm seems to be a strange interaction between proth prime screen saver and gpugrid - screen saver reached 100% while wu was <60% and somesort of error message flashed before going back to bonc manager
23:30 <FreeLarry58> MTughan hot humm remeinds me to set turbo on new quad
23:30 <MTughan> lol
23:31 <PovAddict> FreeLarry58: tell me all about it
23:31 <PovAddict> FreeLarry58: I wrote that screen saver
23:32 <FreeLarry58> ahh
23:33 <FreeLarry58> so something you might be able to figure out then - figure its to do more with gpu acmed prog then screen saver as both trying to use vid card
23:33 <PovAddict> I've never used CUDA
23:33 <PovAddict> hence, never tested screensaver along with it :)
23:34 <FreeLarry58> there it is then - only reason i saw it is that machine has a 8500 vid card that supports cuda
23:34 <FreeLarry58> most of my machines don't
23:35 <FreeLarry58> humm wonder if i put that 8400 gs i have laying on shelf in wifes machine if a third cuda machine will be born
23:35 <FreeLarry58> they seem to work alright with seti
23:36 <FreeLarry58> but not powerful enough for gpugrid
