00:25 <jackygrahamez> hi

00:26 <jackygrahamez> so I thought it would be time to get out of the stone ages and enter the age of the GPUs...i may have gotten the wrong piece of looking at the list

00:26 <jackygrahamez>

00:26 <Romulus> <> (at

00:26 <jackygrahamez> I got a GeForce 9100

00:27 <jackygrahamez> Should I exchange it? BOINC did not detect a cuda device. Is there a driver i need?

00:27 <PovAddict> yes you need cuda drivers

00:28 <jackygrahamez> is that on the nvidia site?

00:28 <PovAddict> I don't do cuda

00:29 <jackygrahamez> :-)

00:29 <zombie67> is the 9100 CUDA?

00:30 <zombie67>

00:30 <Romulus> <> (at

00:31 <zombie67> the only 9100 version that is CUDA is "GeForce 9100M G"

00:31 <zombie67> if that is not what you have, it's not cuda

00:34 <jackygrahamez> its simply GeForce 9100

00:34 <jackygrahamez> no M G

00:35 <zombie67> so then it's not CUDA

00:35 <zombie67> time to upgrade!

00:35 <jackygrahamez> time to exchange it

00:35 <PovAddict> pwnt

00:36 <jackygrahamez> I got it this afternoon and just got back home after a performance

00:36 <jackygrahamez> they said no charge if I exchange

00:37 <jackygrahamez> I'll get the one with three gpu slots :-)

00:37 <jackygrahamez> night

00:38 *** jackygrahamez has quit IRC

00:38 <PovAddict> plan budget for its new power consumption

00:38 <PovAddict> too late

01:08 *** Eythan has joined #boinc

01:26 *** XioNYC has joined #boinc

01:29 <XioNYC> Okay... WTF is wrong with Hydrogen@Home on Mac/PPC?  I head off to a party, come back, and find that all four cores have been running `projects/` for FOUR HOURS!  /sw/bin/7zip decompresses the same files in under 5 seconds, so all I can think is that `unzip_1.206_powerpc-apple-darwin` broken somehow.  This is *very* frustrating... Ideas?  Info?

01:30 <PovAddict> four hours? kill them

01:30 <XioNYC> I did before I left home - I figured it'd've solved itself while I was out.

01:31 <XioNYC> I've just killed the latest four `unzip`s

01:33 <XioNYC> ...and a minute later, the new four `unzip_1.206_powerpc-apple-darwin`s are still running.  Did I mention that my version of 7zip decompresses files in under 5 seconds?  >_<

01:34 <PovAddict>

01:34 <Romulus> <> (at

01:45 <zombie67> xionyc, I believe it is the same problem with DD@H

01:45 <zombie67> unzip is not working.

01:46 <zombie67> for any tiger or earlier

01:46 <zombie67> it's not the PPC that is the problem

01:47 <zombie67> the same admin runs both DD and HD, and is running into the same problem

01:48 <zombie67> brb

01:48 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

01:48 <XioNYC> I'm on X.4.11.  It also seems that manually unzipping doesn't help.  If only Hydro@Home would use the system-wide unzip app instead of its own...

01:48 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

01:57 <XioNYC> Hmm.  I just tweaked .../projects/hydrogen@home/summary_job5.txt to write a stderr file, and it reads (in part) "app error: 0x5000".  Any inkling as to what that means would be greatly appreciated.

01:57 <XioNYC> I'd hate to reset H@H with >2000 WUs in the queue.

02:02 <zombie67> trust me, the unzip will not work with tiger or earlier and HH or DD

02:02 <zombie67> Jack knows, but has not yet solved it

02:03 <zombie67> I believe MT has offered to help him

02:04 <XioNYC> Phooey ;-(

02:04 <zombie67> TRVTH

02:04 <zombie67> you could upgrade to tiger

02:04 <zombie67> er

02:04 <XioNYC> I'm running 10.4.11

02:04 <zombie67> leopard

02:04 <XioNYC> Leo's not possible right now

02:05 <zombie67> best to wait for SL anyway

02:05 <XioNYC> SL isn't PPC...

02:05 <zombie67> op

02:05 <zombie67> will SL work with PPC?

02:05 <XioNYC> Nope.

02:05 <XioNYC> 10.5 is the End of the PowerPC Line.

02:05 <XioNYC> ;-((

02:05 <zombie67> then leopard is the only option until jack fixes the app

02:06 * XioNYC mutters an obscenity, a vulgarity, and an indecent profanity.

02:07 <XioNYC> Well... at least I have some Pirate WUs coming in.  Thanks for the info, zombie67.

02:07 <zombie67> sure

02:07 <zombie67> there is lattice work available too

02:09 <XioNYC> I'm trying to get 10K cr in each project... passed 10K on Lattice a while ago.  I'll be doin' Enigmas (enigmae?) for a while instead.

02:09 <zombie67> heh

02:09 <zombie67> that is my goal too

02:09 <zombie67> I am #1

02:09 <zombie67> ;)

02:09 <XioNYC> !-)

02:10 <zombie67> d'oh!

02:10 <zombie67> I meant 100k

02:10 <zombie67>

02:10 <Romulus> <> (at

02:10 <XioNYC> I'll get there eventually...

02:10 <PovAddict> I have multiple goals

02:10 <XioNYC>

02:10 <Romulus> <> (at

02:10 <zombie67> of course, there is only ONE TRUE GOAL

02:11 <zombie67> world domination

02:11 <PovAddict> one I started recently is to crunch SETI the minimal necessary to have enough RAC to post on their forum

02:11 <zombie67> hah!

02:12 * XioNYC completely understands ¡-)

02:12 <zombie67> X, concentrate on ibercivis and genlife

02:12 <zombie67> they both award wahatever you claim

02:12 <zombie67> so no penalty for running osx/ppc

02:12 <XioNYC> Ibercivis is borked as well - `nanoluz` returns nothing but error WU results.

02:12 <PovAddict> it has happened many times that I want to post but not enough RAC, so I have to crunch an 8-hour WU and wait for validation

02:13 <zombie67> X, you need to select the right sub-projects with ibercivis

02:13 <PovAddict> other than that... I want to start crunching projects without looking at credits at all

02:14 <PovAddict> I'm giving a big share to WCG/Dengue, for example

02:14 <XioNYC> Over the last few months I've been checking how each project compares in Mac-friendliness.  I was kinda surprised to find that Einstein WUs take 14'38" in order to claim one credit, but grant one credit every 4'22".

02:14 <zombie67> pov, I used to attach to every project, and just adjust resource share

02:15 <PovAddict> there's as many people with swine flu worldwide as people with dengue in a single Argentine province

02:15 <zombie67> for ibercivis, select NO for bless-docking and nanoluz.  everything else, yes

02:16 <zombie67> swine flu is the least lethal flu EVER

02:16 <PovAddict> media hype

02:16 <zombie67> in the US, 35k die every year due to normal flu.

02:16 <XioNYC> Spanish flu of the late 1910s... *that* was nasty stuff.

02:16 <zombie67> that is 100/day

02:16 <PovAddict> see the link I posted above

02:16 <zombie67> how many from swine flu so far?  less thn 5

02:17 <PovAddict> &url last --from povaddict

02:17 <Romulus> PovAddict:

02:18 <zombie67> i prefer the titties method

02:18 <PovAddict> even includes explanations on *why* the brain reacts that way to those manipulations

02:18 <XioNYC> That's why I bookmarked it

02:19 <PovAddict> read the whole damn thing

02:19 <XioNYC> I did.

02:19 <efc> Its notable that its spreading out of season. Makes you wonder what it would do IN season.

02:19 <Tank_Master> boobies!

02:19 <PovAddict> and you'll be rewarded with more titties at the end

02:19 <Tank_Master> hehe

02:19 <zombie67> TM!

02:20 <XioNYC> Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!

02:20 <Tank_Master> z!

02:20 <XioNYC> efc: I just got what you meant

02:21 <PovAddict> computer lagging - know what that means?

02:21 <XioNYC> 5$ says that we'll have an H1N1 app on WCG by end of June...

02:21 <Tank_Master> time to upgrade

02:22 <PovAddict> no, means I got a Hydrogen WU

02:22 * XioNYC gets up off the floor after a bout of uncontrollable laughter

02:23 <PovAddict> ..

02:23 <zombie67> It's *always* been about the titties

02:24 <Tank_Master> corse

02:24 <Tank_Master> yeah, my atom is trying to run those hydrogen WUs to

02:24 <zombie67> why is war fought?  Power, of course.  Why is power important?  Getting titties.

02:24 <Tank_Master> HD is going nutz

02:25 <zombie67> it the unzipping that kills the HD

02:25 <PovAddict> somehow, swine flu media hype is working and I havent seen them use titties in the process

02:25 <zombie67> fear -> power -> rest of what I said

02:25 *** yoyo[RKN] has joined #boinc

02:25 <PovAddict> zombie67: those two lines of you dont sound well together

02:26 <PovAddict> titties and unzipping

02:26 <XioNYC> Wouldn't you unzip in the presence of titties?

02:26 <zombie67> it's the nut-zipping that kills

02:26 <zombie67> aka Something About Mary

03:13 <FreeLarry58> oh my - guess the 535W ps wasn't good enough - came home to dead machine

03:14 <Tank_Master> ouch

03:14 * FreeLarry58 thought i smelled overheated electrical components when i left but couldn't locate which machine

03:14 <Tank_Master> dead dead?

03:14 <FreeLarry58> absolutely nothing showing even on mb

03:14 <XioNYC> Ow.

03:14 <Tank_Master> esh

03:14 <FreeLarry58> figure ps fuse blew

03:15 <Tank_Master> better give it to me

03:15 <Tank_Master> :P

03:15 <FreeLarry58> what the ps?

03:15 <Tank_Master> everything

03:15 <FreeLarry58> not a chance

03:15 <Tank_Master> :D

03:15 <FreeLarry58> q9550 4 gig new 9800gtx+vid - time for a new ps

03:16 <FreeLarry58> at least 600 w -- probably get an 850 just to make sure for future upgrad

03:16 <Tank_Master> :)

03:17 <Tank_Master> thinkin on a second card?

03:17 <FreeLarry58> did like the new numbers - mb doesn't support i think - p5q

03:17 <FreeLarry58> have a second card here already but for different machine -- humm maybe 2 ps tomorrow

03:19 <Tank_Master> sounds like it

03:20 <FreeLarry58> not used to having vid cards drawing 145W

03:21 <Tank_Master> more than the rest of the comp combined :P

03:21 <FreeLarry58> almost

03:22 <Tank_Master> or close thereto

03:22 <FreeLarry58> cpu around 120+W - 2 750G hd and a dvd rw

03:22 <FreeLarry58> 4 gig mem

03:23 <Tank_Master> isnt the CPU only 95w?

03:23 <FreeLarry58> not from tech sheet i saw

03:23 <Tank_Master> huh

03:23 <Tank_Master> ok

03:23 <FreeLarry58> q6600 around the 95W

03:25 * FreeLarry58 and here i thought 535 to 550W ps would give room to spare for upgrades

03:25 <Tank_Master> hehe

03:25 <Tank_Master> my next is gonna have 700w

03:25 <Tank_Master> and be 88% effecent

03:25 <FreeLarry58> last ps i got was 850W antec

03:26 <FreeLarry58> looked into the machine i was going to upgrade vid on and only generic 500W in it

03:26 <FreeLarry58> definite ps upgrade needed

03:28 <Tank_Master>

03:28 <Romulus> <> (at

03:30 *** DerMeister has joined #boinc

03:32 <FreeLarry58> nice - around the same price as the 850 i was looking at

03:33 <FreeLarry58> i'll check the old ps to see if i can replace the fuse - if so then nephew will get it to

03:36 <Tank_Master> :)

03:44 *** yoyo[work] has quit IRC

03:46 <FreeLarry58> yup blown 15A fuse - will get one tomorrow also

03:49 <FreeLarry58> at least nothing else looks damaged or overheated

03:50 <FreeLarry58> and f

03:50 <FreeLarry58> from what i see on ps board only a 485W steady state ps in first place

03:50 <FreeLarry58> 535 surge

03:51 <FreeLarry58> of course the marketeers wont say that

19:02 <Rookie_69> ouch.

19:02 * XioNYC hands Rookie_69 some scouring pads

19:02 <efc> The juice is like aloe vera

19:03 <Rookie_69> Leaves of three... don't funk with it.

19:03 <Rookie_69> ... or let it be...

19:03 <Rookie_69> Something.

19:05 <Rookie_69> Scouring pads would be appreciated for that cast iron pan in the kitchen... and maybe some beef fat as well.

19:05 <Rookie_69> I haven't managed to season it properly yet.

19:06 <Rookie_69> Veggie oil just doesn't seem to work.

19:07 <XioNYC> Oil never does it, and shortening doesn't have the right impact.

19:08 <XioNYC> .o0( geez!  now I'm hungry... )

19:08 <Rookie_69> Lol.

19:08 <Rookie_69> I'll assume I used to have success with lard...

19:09 <XioNYC> I guess it all depends on how often you cook the same meal.

19:10 <Rookie_69> I had a pan at my parents' place that was better than teflon... I haven't seen such success since.

19:11 <Rookie_69> Egg from shell to other side to sammich without anything more than a flick of the wrist...

19:12 <Rookie_69> Nopw, egg to pan and that's about it. :-(

19:12 <Rookie_69> ... Now...

19:12 <XioNYC> I wish I had more time to cook... I could wrustle up the meanest fried egg, ground meat, rice, and veggie combo that'd feed an army.

19:13 <XioNYC> Now I haven't the time to even go food shopping :-(

19:14 <Rookie_69> Time I have... funds and ambition seem to be lacking.

19:15 <Rookie_69> Once in a blue moon I'll make a spread... and freeze it for lunches.

19:15 <efc> Mmm hungry

19:15 <efc> hate cooking all for myself

19:16 <Rookie_69> I'd rather cook for myself because my tastes are different.

19:16 <XioNYC> The only thing I've got in my freezer are AA and AAA batteries...

19:16 <XioNYC> ...and a towel for those really hot days.

19:17 <Rookie_69> I've got a few containers of Pea Soup left over.

19:18 <Rookie_69> That and a sammich makes a lunch for me.

19:19 <Rookie_69> Once a year or so, I soak those containers in bleach and refill them with something.

19:30 <Rookie_69> Hi, Jord!

19:30 <Ageless93> not anymore then. so Glenn, what's supposed to be Dutch?

19:33 <Rookie_69> Some of us associate The Netherlands with Holland and the citizens are supposedly Dutch, but I really don't know anymore... Oh... I was associating Netherlands with nether regions...

19:34 <Ageless93> we aren't the only country with red districts...

19:35 <Ageless93> but thanks... I think... not a compliment I would use too much and out loud. :D

19:37 <Rookie_69> A daughter of a friend did a student exchange program in Amsterdam a year or three ago... I hope it's not all red light district.

19:41 * PovAddict didn't exist yet

19:41 <Rookie_69> she came back seeming as pure as she left, but who knows how pure that was?

19:43 <Ageless93> you should've made a clone of her before she left to compare to upon return. ;)

19:44 <Rookie_69> Hmm... 27 years ago... I drove about 4500 miles across this country back then in a 1967 GMC Handibus Custom and it took me about two and a half months...

19:46 <Rookie_69> Damned relatives kept slowing me down.

19:46 <Rookie_69> ...That and breakdowns...

19:48 <Nickuwo> I dont think anyone comes back from amsterdam the same...

20:10 <Tank_Master> those chearleaders were just to much to give up

20:32 <Ageless93> and no TM, I am not British, but had my max on cola today. Already went through a 1.5 liter bottle and a half of it.

20:34 <Tank_Master> yeah...

20:35 <Ageless93> already got elastic stockings, before someone yells. but they don't help me as much when it's warm.

20:36 <Rookie_69> I could use some fluids in my legs... if it kept my knees from hurting...

20:36 <Ageless93> my feet and legs below the knee will swell up no matter what. my doc won't give me peeing pills.

20:37 <Ageless93> and I don't drink any alcohol, so cola it is then. :)

20:38 <Rookie_69> Hmm... No alcohol... That's a novel approach.

20:39 <Rookie_69> I usually stop at 2

20:39 <Rookie_69> ...too...

20:40 <Rookie_69> ... much.

20:41 <Ageless93> it is when it's 10 liter per one ;)

20:42 <Ageless93> but I don't care, if you want to drink, go ahead. I quit it over a year and a half ago and like it.

20:43 <Ageless93> the thing I hate is those people who stopped smoking or drinking and then will decide for you that you have to stop smoking or drinking.

20:43 <PovAddict> what about those who never smoked and tell you not to smoke?

20:43 <Ageless93> the same.

20:44 <PovAddict> me

20:44 * XioNYC nods

20:44 <Ageless93> I'm not telling you to do certain things my way, so why should you tell me to do things your way?

20:45 <Ageless93> I won't smoke in your house if you don't want me to.

20:45 <Rookie_69> I never smoked before I was conceived... I'm not sure if I qualify.

20:45 <XioNYC> You want me to quit?  I want you to resume.

20:45 <XioNYC> Fair trade, don'cha'know?

21:48 <XioNYC> Unhelpful as it may sound, it means what it says: it resets the project on your computer and you restart the project with a [relatively] clean slate.

21:52 <XioNYC> No - work you've already done remains on the projects' record.

22:30 <XioNYC> Believe it or not, I'm crying right now.

22:33 <XioNYC> All I ask for is a bash console and gcc... that *can't* be too much.

22:33 <PovAddict> you can have that

22:33 <PovAddict> if you crack it

22:33 <PovAddict> seriously, there's a native gcc ported

22:33 <PovAddict> you can write iphone apps on the iphone and compile them there :)

22:42 <XioNYC> (1) Aplausos (2) iPhone 2.2.1 firmware... It just plain won't roll back.

22:42 <PovAddict> is 2.2.1 unjailbreakable?

22:43 <PovAddict> also, you can always rollback the firmware

22:43 <PovAddict> what you can't do easily is rollback the "baseband" (firmware of the mobile phone processor)

22:43 <XioNYC> Not quite... the last couple of time I tried, I ended up bricking the iPhlop.

22:44 <XioNYC> It seems that 2.2.1 is very un-jailbreakable.  Like Caseros or Rikers.

22:44 <PovAddict> similarly, you can't permanently brick the iPhone by loading a bad system firmware

22:44 <PovAddict> but you can permanently screw up the baseband

22:44 <XioNYC> No - it just stops booting, showing a home screen, or let you turn it on without showing the "please plug me in" icon.
