12:45 <FreeLarry58> k i guess i can say it now that i've tried gpu - gpu gives too much credit - no wonder there are so many hounds getting insane rac's
12:45 <FreeLarry58> 2 units on new machine (i7) equaled total credit for other 8 projects combined during that time frame
12:46 <FreeLarry58> PovAddict - that error screen pn primegrid screen saver stuck on the vista machine this time it says
12:47 <FreeLarry58> -The aplication has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information
12:48 <FreeLarry58> in M$ visual C++ Runtime Library window that is
12:48 <PovAddict> sieve WUs aren't supposed to have a screensaver
12:49 <FreeLarry58> true - i guess prime wanted to add it to them
12:49 <PovAddict> but the screensaver doesn't *support* the sieve app, so it enters the buggy test mode when it notices the WU is not a LLR
12:50 <FreeLarry58> small but - guess that the termination should just be a restart of progress bar instead of termination
12:50 <FreeLarry58> termination would imply wu being uploaded and reported
12:50 <PovAddict> and that's what happens
12:50 <PovAddict> in LLR
12:51 <PovAddict> progress bar reaches 100% when WU reaches 100%
12:51 <PovAddict> in sieve, the screensaver doesn't even know what the WU progress is, or when it finishes
12:51 <FreeLarry58> true - so test mode should just restart
12:51 <FreeLarry58> progress bar that is
12:51 <PovAddict> test mode should never trigger in a user's machine
12:52 <PovAddict> maybe I should have made it so that there is no test mode if not run on my computer: if WU not supported, refuse to start graphics
12:52 <FreeLarry58> only ones i've noticed it on so far is vista machines
12:53 <FreeLarry58> lol - i'm sure someone at prime would have noticed the test mode and try to enable if you did
12:54 <FreeLarry58> it is a nice saver after all
12:54 <PovAddict> doubt it, since I *didn't give them the source code*

13:59 <yoyo[RKN]> if I change the url of an project I must also create new app versions, right?
13:59 <PovAddict> if you change the URL of a project, all hell breaks loose
13:59 <Nickuwo> haha
14:00 <PovAddict> step 1 in changing a project URL: pick a GOOD new URL, so that you'll never have to change it again
14:01 <yoyo[RKN]> ok .. done
14:01 <yoyo[RKN]> there were no wus running
14:02 <PovAddict> two projects in the same subdomain are a problem: if they get too much load and you have to move them to separate physical servers, one of the projects' URLs will have to change (unless you have a server-side proxy or something like that)
14:02 <PovAddict> an organization name in the project URL is sometimes a problem: it has happened that a project moved from one university to another and they had to change URL
14:02 <PovAddict> that said and done:
14:03 <PovAddict> step 2: stop the project. if the project was ever public, post news to make users detach and attach to new URL
14:03 <yoyo[RKN]> wasn't public
14:04 <PovAddict> replace URL everywhere in config.xml
14:04 <yoyo[RKN]> done
14:04 <PovAddict> replace URL in html/user/schedulers.txt
14:04 <yoyo[RKN]> done
14:05 <PovAddict> if you have project-wide files, like logos for the simple GUI, replace download URLs in project_files.xml
14:05 <yoyo[RKN]> I didn't made such files until the url is not fixed
14:06 <PovAddict> delete everything inside html/cache (but not the cache folder itself)
14:07 <PovAddict> rm -rf html/cache/*
14:07 <yoyo[RKN]> done
14:08 <PovAddict> create new application versions, or update the app_version table to have the new URLs
14:09 <PovAddict> do you have any WUs in progress or waiting to be sent?
14:10 <yoyo[RKN]> no
14:10 <PovAddict> do you have forums?
14:10 <yoyo[RKN]> no
14:10 <PovAddict> then that should be it
14:11 <yoyo[RKN]> ok, I was aware of everything but not the html/cache/* stuff
14:12 <PovAddict> it would simply mean broken links on the website (links taking to the old URL) for an hour or two on cached pages

15:25 <jasong> So AOL is encouraging inappropiate thinking, I guess
15:25 <PovAddict> go to any social networking site and you'll see lots of underage girls posting *their own* pictures in bikini
15:25 <jasong> Yeah, but this is a billion dollar company
15:25 <PovAddict> same here, it was her who posted it
15:26 <PovAddict> then someone else (not her nor AOL) put an ad on AOL about it, I guess

20:32 <Tank_Master> http://www.neowin.net/news/main/09/05/27/intel-previews-xeon-nehalem-ex-8-core-processor <- I want a few of those
20:40 <Tank_Master> PovAddict - what did you find?
20:43 <PovAddict> suppose a project gives a fixed 13.333 credits per WU
20:44 <Tank_Master> ok...
20:44 <PovAddict> (number may seem strange, but I initially started with '10', and the number evolved from there :P)
20:44 <Tank_Master> lol
20:44 <PovAddict> task takes four hours on my CPU
20:44 <PovAddict> let's assume single-core for simplicity
20:44 <PovAddict> how many credits per day will I get?
20:45 <PovAddict> at 4 hours per WU, I do six tasks a day
20:45 <PovAddict> 13.333 x 6 = 80
20:45 <PovAddict> 80 credits per day
20:45 <PovAddict> now, the project manages to optimize the application enough to make it take three hours
20:46 <PovAddict> so I do 8 tasks per day now
20:46 <Tank_Master> right
20:47 <PovAddict> so to keep their credits/day matching other projects, they'd have to lower credits per task
20:47 <PovAddict> down to 10
20:47 <Tank_Master> true
20:47 <PovAddict> 10 credits per task, 8 tasks per day, 80 credits per day
20:47 <PovAddict> and everything works fine
20:47 <PovAddict> now here's the problem
20:47 <PovAddict> project makes a GPU app
20:48 <PovAddict> suppose it takes 1 hour (!) on my GPU
20:48 <umccullough> and your GPU cries
20:48 <PovAddict> so my CPU makes 80 cr/day and my GPU makes 240 cr/day
20:49 <PovAddict> now, the project optimizes the CPU app further, it takes 2 hours; GPU app unchanged
20:49 <PovAddict> what should the project do with credits?
20:49 <PovAddict> if they, again, lower credits per task (down to 6.66667) so that the CPU keeps getting 80 credits/day
20:50 <PovAddict> the GPU will go down from 240cr/day to 160cr/day
20:50 <PovAddict> why should GPU users be "penalized"?
20:50 <Tank_Master> probably why some projects deside to split the gpu and cpu apps into different projects
20:50 <PovAddict> if they leave credits at 10cr/WU, GPU still gets 240cr/day
20:50 <PovAddict> but CPU gets 120cr/day now
20:51 <PovAddict> and the project is now overgranting, because my CPU gets close to 80cr/day on every project except this one where it gets more
20:51 <PovAddict> once again, there is no good answer
20:52 <PovAddict> at least not while keeping the current credit concept
20:52 <PovAddict> once again, a solution would be to make project credits totally independent, and forbid adding credits from different projects
20:52 <Tank_Master> anywho, ill bbl, dinner
20:52 <PovAddict> the project can easily give 10cr/WU (or 100) and stop worrying about the problem
20:53 <PovAddict> it won't matter if this project gives 2000cr/day and that other gives 80cr/day
20:53 <PovAddict> because it's not like the first project will affect your total more: there will be no total
20:54 <PovAddict> incompatible non-comparable units
20:54 <PovAddict> or, you could compare them, assigning a weight yourself, depending on how much you value the work of each project
20:55 <PovAddict> "should an hour of prime searching pay the same as an hour of protein folding? which is more valuable?" that's personal opinion

21:57 <jasong> Any Ubuntu users here?
21:57 <jasong> I'm confused about something.
21:58 <jasong> There's an install iso called AMD64 which, if I remember correctly, is also what's supposed to be installed on Intel. It's basically 64-bit Ubuntu unless I badly misunderstood something. Is this correct?
21:59 <PovAddict> yep
21:59 <PovAddict> AMD64 is the architecture name
21:59 <PovAddict> just like IA32 is the official architecture name for 32-bit x86
21:59 <PovAddict> (stands for Intel Architecture 32)
21:59 <jasong> Why the hell don't they call it 64-bit, or something random, rather than confusing the hell out of people like me?
21:59 *** MTughan has quit IRC
21:59 <jasong> sorry, not mad at you
21:59 <PovAddict> (and IA64 has nothing to do with the common 64-bit architecture)
22:00 <jasong> brb, drink
22:00 <PovAddict> IA64 is Itanium
22:00 <jasong> oops, it's full, I must be losing time again
22:00 <PovAddict> AMD64 is the 64-bit extensions to the x86 architecture, invented by AMD and then adopted by Intel
22:01 <jasong> What's IA64, then?
22:01 <PovAddict> AMD64 is the first time AMD invents a significant modification to x86... usually it's Intel extending it and AMD having to catch up (which involves buying a license from Intel to be allowed to do it)
22:02 <PovAddict> IA64 is quite a different architecture... didn't have too much market acceptance really
22:02 <PovAddict> look at their sales forecasts vs actual sales: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Itanium_Sales_Forecasts_edit.png
22:02 <PovAddict> they kept losing optimism, and reality still is below their expectatinos
22:42 *** MTughan has joined #boinc
22:43 <infinisoft> The new IA64 uarch is experiencing numerous delays
22:43 <MTughan> Is IA64 still being developed? I think x86_64 could easily displace it.
22:44 <PovAddict> MTughan: did you read details about it?
22:44 <MTughan> No, I didn't.
22:44 <MTughan> I know some about it though.
22:44 <infinisoft> Only just now is x86 servers receiving the needed RAS features that IA64 had for a long time
22:44 <infinisoft> Which is called Nehalem EX.
22:45 <infinisoft> Which works glueless for up to 8 way -- another thing usually kept for ia64
22:47 <infinisoft> Anyway, IA64 is still alive and the next chip is codenamed "tukwila" but it has been long overdue.
