02:18 <yang> MTughan: Do you use boincmgr (linux)

02:19 <MTughan> I use the manager, but I don't have any computers running Linux ATM. I will within a couple of weeks probably.

02:19 <yang> ok

02:19 <yang> I am trying to setup boincmgr in such a way that i can also re-attach remotelly

02:19 *** MacG has quit IRC

02:19 *** MacG has joined #boinc

02:20 <yang> currently I login to a remote server with -X option and      execute boincmgr there

02:20 <MTughan> You'll want to change gui_rpc_auth.cfg and remote_hosts.cfg then.

02:20 <yang> but i think it can be done via the local boincmgr too

02:20 <MTughan> gui_rpc_auth.cfg contains the password that BOINC uses, and remote_hosts.cfg defines the computers that are allowed to connect.

02:20 <MTughan> BOINC in this case referring to the core client.

02:21 <yang> yes

02:21 <yang> i will look at that

02:23 *** RomW has quit IRC

02:30 *** [B^S]renemayer has joined #boinc

02:44 *** ELGono has joined #boinc

02:57 <yang> Is there also a way to integrate boinc into a screensaver, some projects support graphics?

02:58 <MTughan> BOINC should install a screensaver, but most people in here don't run the screensaver or the graphics anyway, as they take CPU time away from the scientific calculations.

03:13 *** arfmarf has joined #boinc

03:14 <yang> ok

03:15 *** infinisoft has quit IRC

03:17 <yang> MTughan: if i want password "boincpass" inside gui_rpc_auth.cfg, do I simply write this line inside that file ?

03:17 <yang> or is it hashed

03:17 <MTughan> Yeah, just change the contents. You'll have to shut BOINC down first though.

03:17 <yang> yes

03:17 <MTughan> No, it's not hashed. It's plaintext.

03:26 <yang> MTughan: ok, I guess when I enable remote auth, then i cannot see any processing when starting from localhost, or maybe i must add also

03:27 <yang> anyway, i will do all over remote auth, its easier

03:27 <MTughan> No, localhost is always allowed.

03:37 <yang> this way it works much faster, than rendering remote X session

03:38 <yang> Do you know if the boincmgr in linux looks the same as in windows, and is it possible to re-attach remotelly to a windows core boinc from a linux machine?

05:07 <FreeLarry58> yang - i use boincmgr on this (windows) machine to attach to a deadheaded linux machine and control it - you just have to have the port set and check with PovAddict for additional files for allowed remote hosts -- also it needs to started on each machine to allow repote gui

05:07 <FreeLarry58> have done same from linux to windows in past also

05:08 <yang> ok, nice

19:19 <xcamel> looks like it will be a nice day, then the big car show on sunday

19:24 <Rookie_69> Big cars make for a better show.

19:25 <Rookie_69> Yesterday, some guy brought his Singer Gazelle in to get looked at.

19:29 <Rookie_69> That is definitely not a big car.

19:32 <efc> Whose graduation?

19:33 <Tank_Master> who cares, as long as there are strippers

19:33 <xcamel> Daughter.

19:33 <efc> Cool, big plans after that?

19:33 <Rookie_69> More likely to find strippers at car show.

19:33 <xcamel> not really, other than off to college in august.

19:34 <Rookie_69> ... paint strippers...

19:34 <xcamel> exactly.

19:34 <efc> Most of the guys around here, who have kids graduating.. the kids want to work cutting hair, drive a truck, etc.

19:34 <PovAddict> *want*?

19:34 <efc> Yeah. Don't want to do college.

19:34 <xcamel> pfft..

19:35 <efc> I saw an ad for a furniture store in Clayton.. "WE HAVE MALE STRIPPERS"

19:35 <efc> With a stud guy holding a paint brush

19:36 <efc> But yeah, they don't understand the higher level lifestyle came from Dad having a decent job

19:38 <efc> Maybe its always been this way, but I usually see the people older than me as being respectable and hard working, and the younger ones as being sorry slackers

19:38 <xcamel> Major in criminology, minor in criminal psychology

19:41 <PovAddict> your spelling speaks about education... *ducks*

19:41 <Tank_Master> not my fault they desided it was better to have everyone perform the same level as the retards

19:42 <PovAddict> ah yes

19:42 <PovAddict> lowest common denominator

19:42 <Tank_Master> no way else to get everyone to perform the same

19:42 <Rookie_69> No one left behind?

19:42 <Tank_Master> yeah

19:43 <Tank_Master> thats just part of the problem

19:43 <efc> No Child Left Unarmed

19:44 <efc> Its spelled edumacation, Tank_Master.

19:45 <Tank_Master> wtf r u, a teacher?

19:45 <Rookie_69> Teecher.

19:45 <xcamel> All that was required to win two world wars, and bring us into the space age was learned in one room schoolhouses.

19:45 <xcamel> now look at the mess we've got.

19:46 <Tank_Master> lol

19:46 <efc> Hypothesis: Quality of education is inversely proportional to the number of rooms in the school.

19:46 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.

19:46 <xcamel> exactly.

19:46 <Tank_Master> LOL

19:46 <PovAddict> no, the amount of bureaucrazy involved...

19:46 <PovAddict> typo intentional

19:47 <efc> With all the PhDs we have running the schoools the little brats should be doing brain transplants for science fair projects.

19:47 <xcamel> the level of stupidity is directly proportional to the amount of bureaucracy involved...

19:47 <Tank_Master> PhD - Prity high deploma

19:47 <xcamel> 'piled-hip-deep'

19:47 <efc> PhD in education, no les

19:48 <Tank_Master> GED - Good enough degree

19:48 <PovAddict> BS = bullsh**

19:48 <xcamel> PhD in education is an oxymoron.
