IRC logs of #boinc for Saturday, 2009-05-23

00:08 <CoderForLife> sleep is overrated

00:17 <MTughan> How many times have you stated that now?

00:18 <efc> It must have been waaaaaaay overrated to begin with

00:18 <efc> like a credit default swap on LA exurb mortages

00:19 <CoderForLife> I have a personal imperative to repeat things as they remain demonstrably true

00:19 <PovAddict> whoa you're right MTughan

00:20 <MTughan_> It's been what, every day for the past two weeks or so?

00:20 <PovAddict> nicolas@ubuntu ~> grep "<CoderForLife>.*sleep is overrated" ~/.kde/share/apps/konversation/logs/freenode_\#boinc.log | wc -l

00:20 <PovAddict> 9

00:20 <MTughan_> Check #boinc_dev too. He's said it there a couple times.

00:21 <PovAddict> and one more my regex didn't catch: "this sleep thing is overrated"

00:21 <CoderForLife> each time I am up in the middle of the night, and sleep is elusive

00:21 <PovAddict> only once in my boinc_dev log

00:21 <MTughan_> So 11 times.

00:22 <CoderForLife> my boinc project server disk space filled up

00:22 <PovAddict>

00:27 <PovAddict> CoderForLife:

00:27 <Romulus> Title: pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at

00:28 <CoderForLife> heh

00:29 <MTughan_> He's consisten.

00:29 <MTughan_> consistent*

00:29 <KathrynM> well.  I gotta go buy food for the cat.  she'll have a temper tantrum tonight at 9 if there isn't any stinky wet food for her to eat.

00:29 <KathrynM> might get some spicy chicken stuff for lunch too

00:29 <PovAddict> well, non-consistent results won't show up in a simple regex search :)

00:29 <PovAddict> I also found <CoderForLife> but I've run into the Rather Inconvenient Permissions problem again

00:29 <CoderForLife> heh

00:29 <KathrynM> what's wc?

00:30 <KathrynM> (too lazy to open a shell to look at the man page)

00:30 <PovAddict> word count

00:30 * CoderForLife moves 500,000 results records between servers

00:30 <PovAddict> with -l, shows line count

00:30 <KathrynM> ah

00:30 <KathrynM> are they heavy CoderForLife ?

00:30 <PovAddict> without arguments, shows line count, word count, and character count

00:30 <CoderForLife> very

00:31 <KathrynM> Cav's won

00:31 <PovAddict> * CoderForLife fixes security problem preventing the writing of log files

00:31 <PovAddict> <CoderForLife> how convenient

00:31 <PovAddict> <PovAddict> rarely is huh

00:31 <CoderForLife> 577,207 to be more exact

00:31 <KathrynM> I left the remote on the other side of the room so I didn't change the channel.  Ivory seems to like watching tennis

00:31 <PovAddict> does she run after the ball too?

00:32 <CoderForLife> looks like they made the journey, now to clean the table out

00:32 * PovAddict notes multitail is a very useful tool

00:32 <KathrynM> she does play fetch when the mood strikes her

00:33 <PovAddict> tail -f's several files at once, adds syntax highlighting

00:33 <PovAddict>

00:33 <Romulus> <> (at

00:33 <KathrynM> ah, so that's what the crash was in the middle of the night.  she knocked my grandmother's picture off the top of the wardrobe

00:33 <CoderForLife> how do I find out where the most disk space is being consumed?

00:33 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: does that machine have X?

00:34 <CoderForLife> if I go downstairs

00:34 <CoderForLife> any df options?

00:35 <PovAddict> gnome: baobab; KDE: kdirstat or filelight; console: du -h

00:35 <CoderForLife> duh?

00:35 <PovAddict> du = disk usage

00:36 <CoderForLife> du -h says "12K ."

00:36 <CoderForLife> basically - "duh"

00:36 <PovAddict> go up a directory and run du -h again

00:37 <CoderForLife> ah

00:38 <PovAddict> I have a few useful pipelines

00:38 <CoderForLife> I guess I'll kill all the download directory contents for now

00:38 <PovAddict> du -sb * | sort -n | cut -f2 | xargs du -hs

00:38 <PovAddict> (won't work if any file/directory has spaces!)

00:38 <PovAddict> will show disk usage of all direct descendants of the current dir, sorted

00:39 <CoderForLife> download has 4.3GB in it

00:39 <PovAddict> heh

00:39 <CoderForLife> mostly WU that exec in 1 second and get thrown back at the server

00:40 <CoderForLife> .. needs more testing ..

00:40 <CoderForLife> but server disk is full

00:40 <PovAddict> if you delete all files from there, any currently-unsent WU would obviously fail when clients try to download

00:40 <CoderForLife> yeah - doesn't matter at this point

00:40 <PovAddict> sleep ->

00:41 <CoderForLife> thx   cya

00:41 <PovAddict> (overrated, but necessary in my experience)

00:41 <CoderForLife> heh

00:41 *** efc has quit IRC

00:41 <PovAddict> I'll be a zombie tomorrow -.-

00:41 <CoderForLife> it's good to have goals

00:42 <MTughan_> Gonna turn Nazi too? Then we can call you a Nazi zombie.

00:51 <jasong> Huh?  Why'd you say that MT?

00:51 <MTughan_> Call of Duty 5.

00:51 <jasong> ahhh

00:51 <jasong> Never seen that game, but ok

11:56 <MTughan> He left already. :P

11:56 <Tank_Master> true

11:56 <Tank_Master> still, been a while

11:56 <Tank_Master> wonder why he only staied for a min

11:57 <MTughan> He had a bit of a fallout with Willy from BOINCStats.

11:57 <Tank_Master> ahh

11:57 <Tank_Master> so? dont mean he cant come here

11:58 <MTughan> I know, but he thinks Pov is against him because Pov was the one who reported his activities to Willy.

12:41 <MTughan> Microsoft did another Laptop Hunters ad... Ends up with a 13" Dell.

12:41 <MTughan> Of course, when they're pricing out the Macs, they look at the more expensive 15" MacBook Pro rather than the 13" MacBook... >_>

12:42 <MTughan> They say the Mac is $2000 before any upgrades or accessories. Yes, it is. And the MacBook 13" is ~$1200.

12:42 <MTughan> I don't know... I don't see their factuality.

12:46 *** stux|RC-only has quit IRC

12:46 <MTughan> But I suppose that goes for everything Microsoft.

12:47 <Tank_Master> what cracked me up was reading a rebuttle steve said about those PCs

12:48 <MTughan> Steve Jobs responded? I didn't see that...

12:48 <Tank_Master> that the software youd have to buy would make the cost as much as a mac

12:48 <MTughan> Sounds like he was talking about the iLife suite.

12:48 <Tank_Master> but thinks he listed you could either get alternitives for free or peobably would never use

12:48 <Tank_Master> like adobe photoshop

12:49 <Tank_Master> and he also mentioned youd have to buy seperate DVD software, to play DVDs, which is not true

12:50 <MTughan> VLC doesn't play everything.

12:53 <Tank_Master> vlc?

12:54 <Tank_Master> I just use codec packs, I have found shark's 007 codec pack to play everything I have in WMP

12:55 <MTughan> Those may be illegal.

12:56 <Tank_Master> dunno

12:56 <Tank_Master> but they work and are free

12:56 <Tank_Master> so I dont really care

12:57 <MTughan> Because at least MP2 and probably MP1 and MP4 are licensed codecs.

14:18 <FreeLarry58> MTughan what isn't vlc playing? so far only have had bad luck with .rmvb files for mine

14:18 <MTughan> Some copy protected DVDs.

14:19 <FreeLarry58> ahh i see haven't tried that

14:19 <FreeLarry58> and think most of the software i used long ago no longer avail.

15:20 <FreeLarry58> MTughan what do you think of this card for cuda?

15:20 <Romulus> <> (at

15:21 <Tank_Master> why not go with the geforce 250?

15:21 <MTughan> The 9800GTX+ is a fairly good card as I remember, but I think I remember reading that the Asus DK coolers weren't great.

15:21 <Tank_Master> the 1GB 250s consume less power and are shorter than the 9800s

15:22 <FreeLarry58> think thats just a rebranded 9600

15:22 <MTughan> GTS250 is a rebranded 9800GTX+.

15:22 <Tank_Master> and I think MT is correct about that type of heatsink

15:22 <FreeLarry58> true i imagine but then the 250 in the store weren't on sale and got this one for 160

15:23 <Tank_Master> its not quite just a rebranding, it has a larger frame buffer

15:23 <Tank_Master> but for the most part, it is a rebranding

15:23 * FreeLarry58 2 for 160 ea verse 1 at 250

15:24 <Tank_Master> the 250 can be had for as los as 150

15:24 <Tank_Master> low*

15:24 <FreeLarry58> ah well should help me still use my machines without losing too much

15:24 <Tank_Master> true :)

15:24 <FreeLarry58> the store i visited still had too high of opinion of 250 to lower

15:25 <FreeLarry58> will free up a couple of 8xxx cards for machines that pretty much just sit boincing

15:26 <FreeLarry58> still trying to find a layout drawing for the card as they only gave generic info in box

15:27 <FreeLarry58> trying to find the spi? pin connector and to see if really need to hookup both power connectors

15:28 <Tank_Master> you do

15:28 <Tank_Master> but there should be at least one molex to PCI-e adaptor included

15:34 <MTughan_> My HD4870 needs two PCIe power ports, so it came with two power adapters.

15:37 <FreeLarry58> ah k have 2 cable connectors from ps as is but see by calculator it may be a little low on ratings (ps that is)

15:38 <FreeLarry58> no drawings available it looks like so will wing it

15:41 <FreeLarry58> i see 2 2 pin connectors on board one marked J10 and the other not marked on of them should be sound

15:44 <FreeLarry58> should be j10 connector i guess

15:45 <FreeLarry58> will do after i get back from - you know what
