00:00 <PovAddict> so they win in the end :)
00:00 <zombie67> getting back to fixed credits of some method
00:01 <efc> If a failure of one WU could cause a total project failure.. pretty much have to replicate.
00:01 <zombie67> not all projects are like that
00:01 <zombie67> MW, AQUA, RCN, SUDOKU
00:02 <PovAddict> zombie67: http://stuff.povaddict.com.ar:8080/boinctest/workunit.php?wuid=1842
00:02 <PovAddict> I'm using a special boinc feature that makes a new replica for each computer
00:02 <zombie67> mercy
00:03 <zombie67> I think WCG does a sub project like that
00:03 <PovAddict> so instead of creating a hundred workunits and *hoping* they are distributed across as many computers as possible (so I can test on many computers)
00:03 <PovAddict> I create a single workunit with this feature
00:03 <PovAddict> and I ensure each computer gets one (and no more than one)
00:04 <zombie67> ask didac.....about it
00:08 <efc> hmm, just thinking out loud for a second..
00:09 <efc> I'm thinking of a bidding system of some sort
00:09 <RomW> The WCG sub project has a validation scheme, it is just based on the result itself though. Apparently different fields in the data set have a consistent relationship with one another. For instance field 1 might always be 2x field 7. \
00:10 <RomW> So they can tell when a result has been moneyed with
00:10 <RomW> monkeyed with
00:10 <PovAddict> I know one of the subprojects has a strange scheme overall
00:10 <RomW> shesh, need to go to bed
00:10 <PovAddict> they send several replicas, and the results aren't identical
00:10 <zombie67> Hi Rom, I was talking about a sub project that has many replications, that don't necessarily mave anything to do with each other.
00:11 <PovAddict> and if one of the results has an error, it's useful anyway
00:11 <RomW> oh
00:11 <PovAddict> I mean the whole WU is useful anyway, no need to resend that one result
00:11 <RomW> I'll probably remember what Kevin did with that project in the morning, or i'll ask him
00:11 <RomW> lol
00:11 <PovAddict> hmm
00:12 <PovAddict> should I write the third credit scenario of doom, or should I write "to be continued", send the message, and go to sleep? :P
00:12 <RomW> Personally I decided to wait until the morning
00:13 <RomW> I've been beating my head against the Linux wall all day...
00:13 <PovAddict> my sleep pattern is... well, isn't a pattern
00:15 <RomW> You would think that dealing with GPUs on Linux would be so easy, with Nvidia having exposed two seperate devices for dealing with CUDA
00:15 <RomW> but it isn't
00:15 <PovAddict> heh
00:16 <PovAddict> getting my video card to behave on Linux and not corrupt titlebars was hard enough; I'm staying the hell away from CUDA
00:16 <RomW> To top it all off, I couldn't find an applet like the Windows Device Manager for Fedora 11 or the latest Ubuntu
00:17 <RomW> So I couldn't really tell if X was using the nvidia video drivers or the default drivers for the distro
00:17 <PovAddict> hwinfo, inspecting /sys... if you're dealing with hardware, there seems to be little graphical support :P
00:17 <PovAddict> inspecting Xorg.log...
00:17 <RomW> Well, i'm not going to reboot to find out now...
00:17 <RomW> lol
00:18 <PovAddict> I'd pass, too
00:18 <RomW> I just fell back to uninstalling the driver and rebooting, if X failed to start it was probably using the right driver
00:18 <PovAddict> sometimes (rarely), I come to my computer, turn on the screen, and the screen light just blinks
00:19 <PovAddict> like it does when the computer turns display off to save energy
00:19 <RomW> in any case, I finally got enough info to know it wasn't a BOINC specific problem and passed it off to the NVidia engineers
00:19 <PovAddict> but moving mouse or typing doesn't activate it
00:19 <RomW> ouch
00:19 <PovAddict> can't go to TTYs
00:19 <RomW> that sucks
00:19 <PovAddict> if I ssh from another computer, I see Xorg using all the CPU
00:20 <PovAddict> looking at kernel log, there are some obscure errors mentioning "NVRM"
00:20 <RomW> Non-volitile RAM?
00:20 <RomW> or ROM?
00:20 <PovAddict> or NVidia RAM, dunno :P
00:21 <RomW> or something of that nature
00:21 <PovAddict> happened around a dozen times in this computer lifetime...
00:21 <PovAddict> I only once recovered it without rebooting
00:24 <RomW> I suppose the next step since I have this new rig, will be to get an ATI card... Start this whole mess over with ATI hardware
00:25 <RomW> Then we'll support both Nvidia and ATI
00:25 <zombie67> yeah, we REALLY need ATI support in BOINC
00:28 <RomW> The more the marrier
00:28 <RomW> time for bed
00:28 <zombie67> GN
00:28 <RomW> before my typing gets worse
00:28 <RomW> lol
00:28 <RomW> night
00:41 <Tank_Master> PovAddict?
00:41 <PovAddict> I was going to ask about aqua@home credits but zombie67 filled us in already :)
00:41 <Tank_Master> you pinged?

11:22 <RomW> I'm back
11:23 <RomW> Please revert back to the 180.60 drivers, otherwise your cuda apps will blow up when they attempt to start
11:24 <RomW> Also, can you check your preferences on either S@H or GPUGRid and make sure that the Suspend GPU activity while computer is in use is turned off
11:28 <hawmps> ah.. there you are...
11:29 <hawmps> step 1, yes.
11:29 <hawmps> step 2, yes.
11:29 <hawmps> still not showing any, but may not have any work.
11:30 <RomW> Which projects are you attached to that support GPU?
11:32 <hawmps> seti, einstein, vtu? milkyway?
11:32 <RomW> hmmmm
11:32 <RomW> I think they all require compute capability 1.1 or higher
11:33 <RomW> i.e. you probably need a newer card

13:15 <rucinter> hello
13:15 <hawmps> hi
13:16 <hawmps> .ro... hmmm.. Romania?
13:16 <rucinter> I've resumed seti@home activity after a year or so, with 3 computers in 2 location, 10 core in total and BOINC accepted some workunits in the first day, but today, the second day, none of my installed clinets couldn't uploda results to BOINC
13:16 <rucinter> hawmps, yes, why?
13:17 <PovAddict> rucinter: SETI uploads seem to be disabled at the moment
13:17 <PovAddict> they may be doing maintenance
13:17 <rucinter> so it's a general thing
13:19 <hawmps> just though it was kind of cool..
13:19 <rucinter> well, it's not that cool actually :)
13:19 <hawmps> and with seti, that is 'situation normal'
13:20 <rucinter> great, a lot of RAC when it will be unclogged
13:21 <hawmps> ok.. hot in Brasov tonight...
13:21 <rucinter> are you from Brasov?
13:21 <hawmps> not hardly.. :-)
13:22 <rucinter> then your statement about Brasov being hot is confusing me :)
13:23 <hawmps> You said it wasn't that cool, so it must be hot...
13:23 <hawmps> (it was humor..)
13:23 <rucinter> oh, I have to recalibrate my humorous subroutines
13:24 <hawmps> where in Romania are you?
13:25 <rucinter> Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania
13:25 <hawmps> fairly large town...
13:26 <rucinter> one of the largest arround here
13:27 <rucinter> oh, I've checked Astropulse on SETI preference page, but until today, I haven't received any Astropulse workunit, is there a way to "request" one?
13:27 <PovAddict> there are no astropulse workunits available at the moment
13:27 <rucinter> and when they will be, I will automatically receive them?
13:27 <PovAddict> probably
13:27 <rucinter> I see, thank you
13:27 <hawmps> I think you have to go to the settings page, and click on 'allow test/alternate applications'
13:28 <rucinter> yep, already did that
13:29 <rucinter> just re-watched Contact, the movie, the other day and that movie really opened my apetite for SETI one more time.
13:38 <PovAddict> okay, if my first credit rant didn't stumble them, this one will...

22:29 <PovAddict> link or it didn't happen
22:30 <mweltin> haha
22:31 <mweltin> "Though an official announcement has not yet been made"
22:32 <mweltin> there is no real link to post
22:32 <Romulus> Title: Slashdot - News for nerds, stuff that matters (at slashdot.org)
22:33 <mweltin> nice
22:38 *** mick_laptop has joined #boinc
22:39 <PovAddict> "Like a lot of these silly comparisons on slashdot ("My hammer is better than your screwdriver!") it comes down to using the right tool for the right job."
22:46 <mweltin> yeah the new buzz word on campus is drupal and everyone wants on the bandwagon regardless of the site they really need.
22:47 <PovAddict> sigh
22:48 <umccullough> drupal is at least pretty nice ;)
22:48 <umccullough> even if it's huge
22:54 <mweltin> it's amazing that a page will load sometimes
22:56 <umccullough> really? been administering a drupal site for a few years now...
22:56 <umccullough> anyone here in the SF/Bay area?

23:06 <mick_laptop> hi everyone
23:07 <mick_laptop> i'm using folding@home and i just did a config and the started ./fah -verbosity 9 --- now it just says "[02:54:24] Timered checkpoint triggered.
23:07 <mick_laptop> is that a good thing - a bad thing - or do i just wait it out :)
23:08 <PovAddict> folding@home doesn't use boinc
23:09 <mick_laptop> whoops
23:09 <mick_laptop> :)
23:09 <mick_laptop> i actually thought it did
23:11 <Tank_Master> not anymore
23:11 *** jasong has quit IRC
23:11 <Tank_Master> they did for a breaf time while testing it out
23:11 *** jasong has joined #boinc
23:12 <Tank_Master> but they elected to develop the GPU apps instead
23:12 <mick_laptop> ah, ok
23:12 <Tank_Master> howdy mweltin
23:12 <mick_laptop> does it play nice w/ boinc?
23:12 <PovAddict> mick_laptop: define "play nice"
23:12 <mick_laptop> do they step on each other's toes
23:12 <PovAddict> neither knows the other is there
23:13 <Tank_Master> if F@H can be set up to only use GPU, the BOINC can be set to only use CPU and that shouldnt cause to much trouble
23:13 <PovAddict> so both will try to take all of the "idle cycles" of your machine...
23:13 <mick_laptop> ok cool - that is what i thought, didn't want them stepping on each other's ports
23:13 <Tank_Master> they will to some extent
23:13 <mick_laptop> or each other's cpu cycles or something :)
23:14 <Tank_Master> boinc is set at the lowest possible priority, so if f2h is the same, then they will both compete for the resources (will get 1/2 of the time)
23:14 *** MikeChelen has joined #boinc
23:14 <Tank_Master> but if F@H is a tad hige, it will take most of the time (at least on windows)
23:15 <Tank_Master> higher*
23:16 <Tank_Master> boinc can also limit the number of cpu threads it uses
23:18 *** mweltin has quit IRC
