17:09 <MTughan_> I always misspell that... :|

17:09 <Tank_Master> yes, he is quite daft

17:09 <MTughan_> Thanks for the encouragement.

17:09 <Tank_Master> np :)

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.

17:14 <xcamel> vtw needs a way better webserver

17:14 <MTughan_> VTW?

17:14 *** si has quit IRC

17:14 <xcamel> er.. vtu

17:15 <MTughan_> Rom's released 6.6.29 for Linux BTW.

17:15 <xcamel> any changes?

17:15 <MTughan_> It's a minor release. Will be bug fixes as usual.

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.

17:19 <Tank_Master> good

17:20 <xcamel> looks like it's working..

17:20 <xcamel> 6.6.20 >> 6.6.29

18:03 <PovAddict> <MTughan> Hah, no show-stopping bugs...

18:03 <PovAddict> <Didactylos> a "showstopper" is defined as "a bug we delay release for".

18:03 <PovAddict> <MTughan> Is there any bug that fits under that definition for Rom or DA?

18:03 <PovAddict> <Didactylos> Not once they decide they're done.

18:04 <Tank_Master> only if the bug was of something they didnt design

18:05 <PovAddict> fails as designed

18:05 <MTughan_> Me like... :P

22:09 <MTughan> Well, I've got green olives and hot chocolate. xD

22:09 <RomW> hmmmmm...

22:10 <MTughan> I'd prefer black olives, but green's still good.

22:10 <RomW> Black olives would be better...  lol

22:10 <MTughan> So olives, hot chocolate, and Airplane!

22:11 <Nickuwo> graduate?

22:11 <MTughan> No, undergrad.

22:11 <Nickuwo> did you graduate?

22:14 <RomW> FreeLarry58: Are your preferences setup to handle a Quad proc?

22:14 <MTughan> I just wish MW would get some work...

22:14 <FreeLarry58> not sure RomW

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.

22:16 <FreeLarry58> Nickuwo taint as in it isn't time yet

22:17 <FreeLarry58> maybe t'ain't

22:17 <Nickuwo> more fun the other way

22:17 <FreeLarry58> lol

22:17 <RomW> Is there a global_prefs_override.xml file in the same directory as the CC?

22:17 <FreeLarry58> a little slang from youthful days

22:18 <FreeLarry58> humm where would i find that directory RomW

22:18 <MTughan> C:\ProgramData\BOINC on Windows Vista or later.

22:18 <MTughan> What OS?

22:18 <Romulus> hmm... What OS is it, MTughan

22:20 <FreeLarry58> vista 64 ultimate

22:20 <MTughan> Yeah, so the above.

22:20 <FreeLarry58> don't see global_pref file

22:21 <MTughan> "We have our clearance, Clarence." "Roger, Roger. What's our vector, Victor"? xD

22:21 <FreeLarry58> don't even see project data files

22:23 <Nickuwo> You ever been in a Hungarian prison tommy?

22:23 <Nickuwo> WE need to get this woman to a hospital. What is it? Well, it's a big building with patients and doctors, but that's not important...

22:23 <Nickuwo> lol

22:25 <RomW> FreeLarry58: What does the processor line in the CC state?

22:25 <RomW> FreeLarry58: on startup...

22:25 <FreeLarry58> RomW don't know if it helps but use bam account manager

22:26 *** jasong has joined #boinc

22:26 <FreeLarry58> Q9550 processor - which is what i upgraded to

22:27 <RomW> Was it a dual proc before?

22:27 <MTughan> What's the problem? It was a dual-core, you upgraded to a quad, but it's still only running two tasks?

22:27 <RomW> oh

22:27 <RomW> lol

22:27 <FreeLarry58> yes an e6750

22:27 <RomW> Did you re-install Vista afterwords?

22:27 <FreeLarry58> nope

22:27 <MTughan> RomW: The line you missed: <FreeLarry58> hum 6.6.28 doesn't automatically increase number of processes on processor upgrade - ie dual to quad

22:27 <FreeLarry58> vista detected and seems to be running correctly

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?

22:29 <RomW> And how much memory does the machine have?

22:30 <FreeLarry58> data directory c:\ProgramData\Boinc

22:30 <FreeLarry58> Processor 4 Genuine Intel Intel(R) core(TM)2 quad CPU 9550 @ 2.83.....

22:32 <FreeLarry58> as in BAM? yes

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
