19:27 <jasong> Have people updated to Fedora 11 yet?  My computer doesn't seem to want to do it

19:29 <xcamel> nope

19:29 <XioNYC> That'd depend... how's PPC support? (I'm not touchin' *nothin'* on my NAS box)

19:30 <Rookie_69> I think I Dl'ed it and made a coaster then gave up.

19:30 <jasong> the update was supposed to happen today, but if it's on the servers my computer is refusing to get it

19:31 <XioNYC> jasong: Are you trying to update by yumming or by installation cd?

19:31 <jasong> yum

19:31 <XioNYC> hold tight a sec. - I'll be right back

19:31 <xcamel> I have 10 on one box... and hate it.

19:32 <XioNYC> Okay, here's what you do...

19:32 <XioNYC> 1 - Make a copy of your Fedora 10 repo file ("/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-10.repo" or somesuch)

19:33 <XioNYC> 2 - Edit the name of the repo (ex: "[Fedora-11-Everything-i386]")

19:33 <XioNYC> 3 - Change the "url=" to read "http://mirror.mcs.anl.gov/pub/fedora/linux/releases/11/Everything/i386/os/"

19:34 <XioNYC> 5 - Save your new Fedora 11 repo file

19:34 <XioNYC> 6 - `yum list update`

19:34 <CoderForLife> gn from Coderville

19:34 <XioNYC> 7 - Make coffee, have dinner, wait for Fed 11 to d/l, and pray that all goes well.

19:36 <jasong> lol

19:37 <XioNYC> Anywhoo... that's how I'd go about "upgrading" Fed 10 to 11 with yum.

19:37 <PovAddict> lol @ ban

19:37 <jasong> hope I spelled that right

19:48 <Rookie_69> Let the cat out of the bag?

19:51 <XioNYC> It's more like... hmm... Like a Frankenstien monster: Ears of one party, nose of another, nuts of another (the ones in its neck, you dirty little man!)... "Mish-mosh" and "smorgasbord" don't quite do "bolsa de gato" justice.

19:54 <Rookie_69> Oh... is that that... animal seen running around?

19:54 <PovAddict> literal translation of "bolsa de gatos" is "bag of cats"

19:55 <XioNYC> But it lacks the impact that it has in Spanish.  The same goes for "ojalá" and "ganas".

19:55 <PovAddict> well, Spanish lacks also something with the impact of "...or not"

19:57 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

19:57 <XioNYC> True.  There's also no f-bomb, but Spanish makes up for it with long strings of multisyllabic glossings upon the party's mother and sister.

22:37 <LordDragon> anyone know of a way i can trick seti@home into sending my mac astropulse units?

22:38 <LordDragon> i was told the osx client doesnt support astropulse

22:38 <LordDragon> however i found a build somewhere on the net that does and installed it

22:38 <PovAddict> then you didn't install it right

22:38 <LordDragon> however im still not getting the AP units

22:38 <PovAddict> are you getting other SETI units?

22:38 <LordDragon> yes

22:39 <LordDragon> i get the seti enhanceted one

22:39 <PovAddict> SETI currently has no AP units available

22:39 <PovAddict> for anyone

22:39 <LordDragon> my friend just got one today

22:39 <PovAddict> well, as of 19 minutes ago, there were 0 available

22:40 <LordDragon> how do you find that out ?

22:42 <LordDragon> supposedly this patched boinc client supports astropulse and i made sure they were checked in my account settings

22:42 <LordDragon> brb

22:46 <wolf_pup> its a trap! http://www.flickr.com/photos/powerpig/3610434595/sizes/l/

22:52 <efc> Who let Admiral Ackbar in here..

22:55 <efc> I like these CPU benchmarks.. they are in Joules to complete a task.

23:00 <PovAddict> electricity units make my head asplode

23:01 <efc> Sounds like you plugged your 120 volt brain into the 240 volt article

23:02 <efc> Flip the switch on the back, then it will be ok

23:03 <PovAddict> watts, joules, volts, amperes

23:03 <PovAddict> never know what's what

23:03 *** kathryn__ has joined #boinc

23:03 <efc> Watt?

23:03 <PovAddict> watt you heard

23:04 <efc> I don't know watt you're talking avolt

23:04 <PovAddict> &grab efc

23:04 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.

23:04 <efc> He grabbed my family joules :(

23:04 <efc> Thank you thank you, I'll be here all week.

23:04 <PovAddict> oh noes

23:05 <MTughan> Watts == joules/sec

23:05 *** KathrynM has quit IRC

23:05 <MTughan> volts * amps == watts too IIRC.

23:07 <PovAddict> yes, wikipedia can tell me a watt is a joule per second of power, a joule is the energy by a force of one newton to move an object one meter, and a newton is the force needed to move one kg by one meter/s²

23:08 <PovAddict> but I will still mix up power, energy, and force

23:08 <PovAddict> so meh

23:08 <MTughan> A joule is also the amount of enery to raise a certain amount of water 1C. I don't remember how much now.

23:08 <PovAddict> some units make me wonder which came first

23:09 <PovAddict> a liter is one cubic decimeter

23:09 <PovAddict> a liter probably came after the meter

23:10 <PovAddict> but a liter of water weighs a kilogram; which was "invented" first, grams and kilograms or meters and liters?

23:11 *** KathrynM has joined #boinc

23:11 <MTughan> They may have been invented at the same time.

23:12 <PovAddict> "On 7 April 1795, the gram was decreed in France to be equal to “the absolute weight of a volume of water equal to the cube of the hundredth part of the meter, at the temperature of melting ice.”", and the internet is always right :3

23:21 <zombie67> Q:  what is the minimum level of SSE that 64 bit machines support?

23:21 <zombie67> SSE2?

23:21 <MTughan> Yes.

23:21 <MTughan> Most supported SSE3, but early AMD64 processors only supported SSE2.

23:22 <zombie67> can I steal that sentence?

23:22 <MTughan> Sure, but let me make one grammar correction...

23:22 <zombie67> k

23:23 <MTughan> Most support SSE3, but early AMD64 processors only supported SSE2.

23:23 <PovAddict> make it a context-free sentence

23:23 <PovAddict> most what?

23:23 <MTughan> Most 64-bit processors support SSE3, but early AMD64 processors only supported SSE2.

23:23 <zombie67> thanks!

23:23 <zombie67> http://aqua.dwavesys.com/forum_thread.php?id=157

23:23 <PovAddict> and, like that, it can be copied to a FAQ/Wiki :)

23:23 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/mq5hvt> (at aqua.dwavesys.com)

23:24 <zombie67> hmmm, no romie?

23:24 <MTughan> Heh.

23:24 <zombie67> s-l-o-w

23:24 <PovAddict> &web title [url last]

23:24 <Romulus> PovAddict: how much does AQUA use SSE optimizations?

23:24 <XioNYC> Rommie's being run on a 8088...

23:24 <PovAddict> no, just slow network

23:25 <XioNYC> &ping

23:25 <Romulus> pong

23:25 <XioNYC> Not that slow

23:25 <MTughan> Slow HTTP uptake. Maybe slow socket creation.

23:25 * XioNYC shrugs shoulders

23:28 *** kathryn__ has quit IRC

23:29 <PovAddict> maybe tinyurl is slow

23:29 <MTughan> Why would've web title take a couple seconds though?

23:30 <PovAddict> &web title [url last]

23:30 <Romulus> PovAddict: how much does AQUA use SSE optimizations?

23:30 <PovAddict> 5s

23:31 <MTughan> Takanuva takes 2 seconds.

23:31 <XioNYC> I don't suppose we could ask Romulus outright...

23:32 *** kathryn_ has joined #boinc

23:33 <MTughan> Kathy's multiplying by the second.
