01:56 <PovAddict> I'm intrigued with landing pages... internet marketing... ebooks...

01:56 <PovAddict> I'm pretty surprised with the idea that such crap actually works and sells

01:58 <PovAddict> i found a 'meta' onr

01:58 <PovAddict> one

01:59 <PovAddict> a page that's almost a perfect stereotype of the kind of landing page I'm talking about, and whose purpose is to sell an ebook on how to make landing pages for eg. ebooks

02:06 <efc> Yeah I run into those occasionally. They are suprisingly successful at getting between me and what I want.

02:09 <MTughan> Ooh, cool desk.

02:09 <Romulus> Title: Star Wars computer mod (at

02:10 <efc> presumably, I can look at the guy's site and figure out all the secrets :P

02:11 <PovAddict> there are hundreds of those ebook landing pages

02:11 <efc> $50/$117 for a PDF, nice

02:11 <PovAddict> the way they're written... sounds almost as if it was the same person/group behind all of them

02:12 <efc> nice desk MTughan.. might have seen it before somewhere

02:12 <efc> I've been thinking about doing a joke site.. maybe if it became a hit I'd make a few bucks

02:12 <PovAddict> I've even seen one about swine flu

02:13 <PovAddict> months ago... impossible he knew anything useful at that point

02:13 <efc> there really is a "google adwords qualified professional", what a load of hooey

02:14 <PovAddict> the internet is for scams

02:14 <PovAddict> and porn

02:15 <efc> yes, my idea was sort of a combo of a scam and porn

02:15 <efc> "professional:"

02:17 <PovAddict> google's business is ads, after all...

02:17 <efc> give Google $100k and you get Qualified

02:18 <efc> I think they need some more competition

02:18 <PovAddict> btw, in my previous link

02:18 <PovAddict> of the 'cash machine'

14:29 <PovAddict> might have to restart X

14:29 <PovAddict> my mouse stopped working (not even the red led turned on)

14:30 <PovAddict> I unplugged it and reconnected it, now it turns on but still doesn't work

14:30 <PovAddict> and Unix desktop environments completely suck at keyboard-only input

14:31 <PovAddict> but developers are currently busy following the hype, trying to make their apps work on devices with no keyboard (only touch screen)

14:31 <PovAddict> that's obviously more important...

14:31 <PovAddict> ...right?

14:31 * umccullough can't stand not having a keyboard

14:32 <umccullough> i remember someone telling me how to re-load the X mouse driver

14:32 <umccullough> but of course, the importance was so low i forgot

14:32 <PovAddict> well, I mean devices with on-screen keyboards

14:32 <PovAddict> say, iphone

14:32 <umccullough> not the same :(

14:32 <PovAddict> that's where the hype and attention is

14:32 <PovAddict> making a computer usable without a mouse is not a priority at all

14:32 <umccullough> idiots

14:32 <PovAddict> that's one thing Microsoft does right

14:33 <PovAddict> even Windows Live Messenger, with its completely custom UI, is fully usable with a keyboard

14:33 <umccullough> replacing a precise multi-input digital device with a single analog non-precise input device is ... lame

14:33 <umccullough> granted multi-touch is sort of multi-input

14:34 <PovAddict> multi-touch UIs don't yet take advantage of everything they could

14:34 <umccullough> true

14:34 <PovAddict> eg. on the iPhone, on preferences, you can't move two sliders at the same time

14:34 <umccullough> i still prefer the no-nonsense keyboard input

14:34 <umccullough> which happens to work quite well over a serial connection ;)

14:35 <PovAddict> example of a problem I have now

14:35 <PovAddict> Kopete (IM client) is blinking the tray icon to say I have new messages

14:35 <PovAddict> there is no way to "click the tray icon" without a mouse

14:35 *** bdesham has left #boinc

14:35 <umccullough> :P

14:35 <umccullough> microsoft has that issue with system tray as well

14:35 <umccullough> oh

14:35 <PovAddict> no, in Windoze you can tab your way to the tray

14:36 <umccullough> you can tab to the systray :)

14:36 <umccullough> i forgot

14:36 <PovAddict> then use arrows to select the icon, and press Enter

14:36 <umccullough> yep, been a long time since i've tried though :D

14:36 <PovAddict> (one of the few cases where that doesn't work is BOINC Manager tray icon)

19:12 <Tank_Master> yeah, but youll fidure it out ;)

19:12 <jackygrahamez_> I could fix the wrapper apps or I could try getting this api working

23:53 <zombie67> found it

23:53 <zombie67> 5520:Two x16 PCI Express Gen2 ports are also configurable as x8 and x4 links compliant to PCI Express Base Specification, Revision 2.0. One single x4 PCI Express Gen2 port can bifurcate into two independent x2 interfaces

23:54 <MTughan> Sounds like you want the 5520 then.

23:54 <zombie67> so, what does that mean to me?

23:54 <zombie67> oh

23:54 <zombie67> oh?

23:54 <Romulus> Somebody said oh is it ever up? :), zombie67

23:55 <zombie67> hm

23:55 <MTughan> You either get two x16 and one x4 with the 5520, or one x16 and two x4 with the 5500.

23:55 <zombie67> sounds like the one with the bigger number is not the more powerful?

23:56 <MTughan> Is it 5550 or 5500?

23:56 <zombie67> oh!

23:56 <zombie67> duh

23:56 <zombie67> NM

23:56 <MTughan> :)

23:56 <zombie67> yeah 5520

23:56 <MTughan> If you get a board with a 5520 and 4 x8 slots, you can support up to 4 GPUs then.

23:57 <MTughan> That's a lot of power depending on what cards you go with though.

23:59 <MTughan> Oh, and you'll have to watch the card spacings too. Found one with four x8 slots, but they're right beside each other. Won't 4x dual-slot coolers.
