00:38 <CoderForLife> that's the job of "parent"

00:39 <PovAddict> yup

00:39 <CoderForLife> I just had to have my wife come and talk about my dream

00:41 <CoderForLife> seems like my blood pressure and pulse are good this morning

00:41 <PovAddict> we're swapping bedrooms (her bedroom is upstairs, mine downstairs, she cant use stairs for a week or two)

00:42 <CoderForLife> that looks like sleep disruption to me

00:43 <Tank_Master> for windows at least

00:43 *** sigmund_ has joined #boinc

00:44 <CoderForLife> that was nice of you

00:45 <CoderForLife> finally - some of the claims have been posted to the insurance web site

00:45 <PovAddict> and a few mins ago, I had to go put the laptop on the desk and a few other pre-sleep things she cant do if she cant move legs

01:04 <Romulus> New news from boinc: BOINC news June 1, 2009

01:05 <wolf_pup> new boinc?

01:05 <MTughan> "Mac users: check out BOINCMenubar 2, an alternative to the BOINC Manager for Mac OS X."

01:05 <MTughan> I should tell them that's it's not really an alternative...

01:06 <Tank_Master> lol

01:07 *** umccullough_aa1 has quit IRC

01:07 <MTughan> Two problems I have with it:

01:07 <MTughan> 1) it doesn't start the CC itself, so you still need to have the normal manager running.

01:07 <PovAddict> it is

01:08 <MTughan> 2) it doesn't show individual tasks

01:08 <PovAddict> you dont need the normal manager running, just the client

01:08 <PovAddict> needing the manager running for the client to run is a flaw of the official manager :)

01:08 <MTughan> PovAddict: No way to start the CC on OS X without the manager unless you know how to use the Terminal.

01:09 <PovAddict> flaw of the official manager/installer on mac

01:09 <MTughan> Indeed. It's supported on the other platforms.

01:11 <PovAddict> "Amarok is not really an alternative to iTunes because it cant play DRM'd files from the itunes store"

01:11 <PovAddict> flaw of itunes: having DRM :)

01:11 <MTughan> Ah, but that's intentional.

01:11 <CoderForLife> back to bed - again

01:13 <infinisoft> Its been awhile since I checked - is there a site that offers up aggregated host stats for a given host cpid?

01:14 <Tank_Master> downt boincstats to some extent?

01:14 <MTughan> Yes, but it doesn't use host CPID. Uses user CPID.

01:15 <MTughan> Eg, my quad:

01:15 <Romulus> <> (at

01:16 <infinisoft> Ah, but offered as an XML too?

01:16 <MTughan> You'll have to talk to Willy from BOINCStats about XML.

01:16 <PovAddict> yes there is

01:17 <PovAddict> &bw StatsXml

01:17 <Romulus>

01:19 <infinisoft> Oh.

01:19 <infinisoft> I tried that a long time ago.  Turns out its broken:

01:19 <Romulus> <> (at

01:20 <PovAddict> well, complain :)

01:20 <PovAddict> or aggregate yourself? :)

01:20 <infinisoft> I've reported it Sept 2008:

01:21 <Romulus> <> (at

01:21 <PovAddict> well, if you reported it so long ago, you know it's not a service you can rely on

01:22 <infinisoft> Yeah--thats why I was hoping a new one sprung up since then ;)

01:22 <PovAddict> 'bad customer service'

01:22 <PovAddict> demand your $0

01:22 <PovAddict> demand your $0 back*

01:26 <infinisoft> What's funny is that the admin is reponding well in the other forum of his site

01:49 * XioNYC pokes MTughan two times

01:49 * MTughan pokes XioNYC thrice

01:49 * XioNYC pokes MTughan in the eye

01:50 <MTughan> See? It's like Facebook.

01:50 <MTughan> Including the eye.

01:50 <XioNYC> Damnit!  Don't you know your classic Cosby skits?

01:50 <MTughan> No.

01:50 * XioNYC starts writing...

01:50 <XioNYC> "And I will poke you one time"

01:50 <XioNYC> "And I will poke you two times"

01:52 <XioNYC> "Clear? Why a four-year-old child can understand this."  (psst!  Go out and get me a four year old child -  I can't make heads or tails of it!)

01:52 * XioNYC honks his horn

01:53 <MTughan> "I once shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know."

01:53 <MTughan> "Go, and never darken my towels again!"

01:53 <XioNYC> "Ey!  Wassamaatayou crezy?  You gotta the pikch?"

01:54 <MTughan> "Did you get me his record?" *Harpo hands him a vinyl"

01:54 <XioNYC> You can leave in a huff.  If that's too soon, you can leave in a minute and a huff.  You know, you haven't stopped talking ever since I got here?

01:55 <MTughan> "Remember men, you're fighting for this woman's honour, which is more than she ever did!"

01:56 <Tank_Master> hehe

01:56 <Tank_Master> man, genlife sure underestimates how long a WU will take

01:57 <MTughan> "What's the matter?" *Harpo lights a match* "You fired?"

02:00 <MTughan> "Ah! I knew your mother very well. Tell you a little secret. Long time ago, in the dear dim past, I proposed to your mother." "But that's my father." "No wonder he turned me down."

02:02 <MTughan> "Here, here, take a cigar. That's a good quarter cigar. I smoked the other three quarters myself."

02:02 <XioNYC> No one's allowed to smoke / Or tell a dirty joke / and whistling is forbidden

02:02 <XioNYC> If chewing gum is chewed / The chewer is pursued / And in the hoose-gow hidden.

02:02 <XioNYC> If any form of pleasure is exhibited / Report to me and it will be prohibited. / I'll put my foot down / So shall it be / This is the land of the free.

02:02 <XioNYC> The last man nearly ruined this place / He didn't know what to do with it. / If you think this country's bad off now, Just wait till I get through with it.

02:05 <XioNYC> The country's taxed must be fixed / And I know what to do with it / If you think you're paying too much now / Just wait till I get through with it.

02:05 <XioNYC> I will not stand for anything that's crooked or unfair. / I'm strictly on the up and up, so everyone beware. / If anyone's caught taking graft and I don't get my share, We stand 'em up against the wall... And pop goes the weasel!

02:05 <XioNYC> If any man should come between a husband and his bride / We find out which one she prefers by letting her decide. / If she prefers the other man, the husband steps aside. / We stand him up against the wall, And pop goes the weasel!

02:05 <MTughan> "You know why I was dining with that woman? Because she reminded me of you! That's why I'm sitting here with you! Because you remind me of you! Your eyes, your lips! Everything about you reminds me of you! Except you. How do you account for that? She figures that one out, she's good."

02:06 <XioNYC> "$8.15?!  This is an outrage - I wouldn't pay it if I were you."

02:07 * XioNYC starts looking in his stash for other flicks...

02:07 <MTughan> No, that's "$10.15? This is an outrage! If I were you, I wouldn't pay it"

02:07 <XioNYC> .o0( $10.15? )

02:07 <MTughan> Actually, maybe it was $8.15. I don't remember the exact amount. But you had the wording in the last part wrong.

02:07 <XioNYC> Nope:

02:08 <XioNYC> "Nine dolars and forty cents? This is an outrage!  If I were you, I wouldn't pay it"

02:08 <XioNYC> It's Good to have a 2TB NFS storage box :-)

02:08 <MTughan> "Now, let's have dinner." "You've had your dinner." "All right, we'll have breakfast."

02:09 <MTughan> "Waiter! Do you have any milk-fed chicken?" "Yes, sir!" "Well, squeeze the milk out of one and bring me a glass."

02:09 <XioNYC> "Mrs. Claypool, Mr. Gotleib.  Mr. Gotleib, Mrs. Claypool.  Mrs. Claypool, Mr. Gotleib.  Mr. Gotleib, Mrs. Claypool..."

02:10 <MTughan> "Do you have any juice?" "Yes, sir. You might have tomato juice, apple juice, pineapple juice, grape juice--" "Hey, turn off the juice before I get electrocuted."

02:10 <XioNYC> "Is the opera over yet?"  "Not yet, signiore - in a few minutte."  "Hey!  You!  I told you to slow down!  On accout of you I nearly heard the opera!"

02:12 <XioNYC> Nag, nag, nag :-P

02:12 <MTughan> And not in any of the movies, but in a record I remember...

02:13 <MTughan> Story of Groucho visiting an anti-semetic place or something, and not being able to go into the pool because he's Jewish.

02:13 <XioNYC> "Things seem to be getting better around this country" / "I dunno... I'm a stranger here myself."

02:13 <MTughan> So he asks if his daughter, because she's only half Jewish, can go in to her knees.

02:13 <XioNYC> The infamous (and highly mutated) "I'd never be a member of a group that would have me as a member" line.

02:14 <XioNYC> Now that I think of it... wasn't that one of the Russel paradoxes?

02:14 <XioNYC> A set that contains all members that isn't contained in the set or something to that extent?

02:15 <MTughan> There's one quote I'm thinking of, but I can't remember how it goes now... Chico's on trial in Duck Soup, and makes a joke about Dollars, Taxes (Dallas, Texas) and something that's irrelevant (elephant).

02:15 <XioNYC> Right!

02:16 <XioNYC> "I object!"?

02:17 <MTughan> Something like "I've got a riddle for you: What's a big grey animal that lives in Africa?" "That's irrelevant." "Hey, that's the answer! There's a whole lot of irrelevants in Africa!"

02:17 * XioNYC is transcribing

02:18 <MTughan> *Something about taxes* "Hey, my uncle lives in Taxes." "No, I'm talking about taxes, dollars." "Hey, that's where he lives, Dollars, Taxes!"

02:18 <XioNYC> "Chiccolini: Give me a number from 1 to 10"

02:18 <XioNYC> "11"

02:18 <XioNYC> "Right."

02:18 <MTughan> "Right"!

02:18 <XioNYC> "Now I ask you one:

02:18 <XioNYC> "What is it that has a trunk but no key, weighs 2000 pounds, and live in a soicus?"

02:18 <XioNYC> "That's irrelevant"

02:19 <XioNYC> "Ir relevant?  Ey!  That's the answer!"

02:19 <MTughan> s/soicus/circus/

02:19 <XioNYC> 'Sucse me fer bein' phonetic n' all...

02:20 <MTughan> Heh.

02:20 <XioNYC> Ahem!... "There's a whole lot of elephants in the ciruis".

02:20 <XioNYC> "That kind of testimony we can eliminate."

02:21 <XioNYC> "'at's fine - I'll take some." / "You'll take what?" / "A leminade - a nice cold glass o' lemonade"

02:21 <MTughan> Tank_Master: Sure you don't want to participate in the Marx fun? :P

02:22 <Tank_Master> yep

02:22 <XioNYC> Marxism for all!

02:24 <MTughan> I suppose you remember what that would be?

02:25 * XioNYC starts playing the harp

02:25 <XioNYC> Gentemen: Chiccolini here may talk like an idiot and look like an idiot, but don't let that fool you - he really *is* an idiot.  I implore you: send him back to his father and brothers who are waiting for him with open arm in the penitentiary...

02:26 <XioNYC> WTF?  They have a pong paddle but no Atari one-button joystick?!

02:26 <MTughan> "I object!" "I object!" "And I object too!" "You can't object, you're on trial." "I couldn't think of anything else to say." "Objection sustained." "Prime minister, you sustain the objection?" "Sure, I couldn't think of anything else to say either."

02:27 <XioNYC> That's like the "H" of the Periodic Table of Joysticks/Controllers.

10:40 <Tank_Master> ahh, fond my other problem

10:40 <Tank_Master> apparently "syspend GPU while in use" isnt overridden when you select "run always" from the activity menue

10:43 <hawmps> interesting..

10:43 <Tank_Master> I had to go into preferences and set it there

10:56 *** mejla has joined #boinc

10:56 <Tank_Master> seems like it

10:56 <Tank_Master> it only affects the CPU apps, not the GPU

11:02 <PovAddict> code to suspend gpu apps seems to be in a totally different place from cpu

11:03 <PovAddict> and, indeed, it's not checking the run mode

11:38 <Tank_Master> figures

11:39 <Tank_Master> they aught to have the option to allow GPU to run always as well as the CPU

12:06 <mweltin1> oh well I didn't know if anyone was listening

12:06 <mweltin1> so I work with the PSAS (

12:06 <mweltin1> it's a rocket club.

12:06 <mweltin1> last Sunday's launch was perfet

12:07 <mweltin1> we got to about 12000 feet

12:07 <mweltin1> 3800 meters

12:07 <mweltin1> I work on the avionics units

12:07 <mweltin1> specifically the IMU (inertial measurement unit)

12:07 <Tank_Master> nice

12:08 <mweltin1> I just found a very nice flight simulation engine called JSBSim.

12:08 <mweltin1> I think I could use BOINC to run massive amounts of simulations for IMU signal processing and in the future navigation control.

12:09 <mweltin1> Once I got that together I'm sure the other teams would want to get on board.

12:09 <mweltin1> it would be legitimate science

12:15 <PovAddict> mweltin1: looks quite good

12:16 <PovAddict> mweltin1: unlike many other programs, it's split into a library that does everything and a simple frontend

12:16 <PovAddict> so you can dump the frontend and make one properly coupled to BOINC

12:16 <mweltin1> yes

12:17 <mweltin1> the jsbsim is used as the backend for some flight simulators e.g. FlightGear

12:18 <mweltin1> the different engines, flight dynamics, and aircraft can be described in a xml document.
