00:34 <lolcow> but roseta-beta 5.98 works

00:35 <MTughan> lolcow: How about reporting it on the Rosetta forums then?

00:35 <PovAddict> then something in rosetta broke

00:35 *** KathrynM has quit IRC

00:35 <lolcow> i reset rosetta and it doesn't work

00:35 <PovAddict> not in boinc

00:35 <lolcow> and its working for all the other users

00:35 <lolcow> what is not in boinc?

00:35 <PovAddict> do you know what reset does?

00:36 <lolcow> removes are work units?

01:02 *** kathryn_ is now known as KathrynM

01:03 <CoderForLife> She can has milk

01:03 <lolcow> this is so strange - the last thing i changed was boinc settings for adding more days of workunts

01:03 <KathrynM> yup

01:03 <KathrynM> Gidgette is up to 755 grams

01:06 <CoderForLife> a balmy winter day

01:06 <PovAddict> 2C...

01:07 <CoderForLife> warm

01:07 * PovAddict goes deep under bed sheets

01:07 <lolcow> noooooooooooo

01:07 <lolcow> fix my boinc

01:07 <MTughan> lolcow: It's something that changed in Rosetta. You should go to their forums instead.

01:07 <PovAddict> oh quit yer bitchin

01:08 <CoderForLife> I'm going back to bed

01:08 <CoderForLife> gn all

01:08 <MTughan> That's another way to put it...

01:08 <lolcow> MTughan: 1.82 was working yesterday

01:08 <PovAddict> or pay me for support

01:08 <lolcow> and there hasn't been a patch

01:08 <MTughan> lolcow: So that gives you a timeframe for the change.

01:08 <lolcow> the problem is i need to remove some boinc tmp files

01:08 <PovAddict> I prefer winter anyway

01:09 <MTughan> Why?

01:09 <lolcow> okay i got it

01:09 <lolcow> had to remove everything , stop boinc, start boinc, re-attach

01:10 <lolcow> rosetta:1, boinc:0

01:10 <PovAddict> when it's cold, you put on more clothes, and/or get in bed, and/or follow the cats and sit close to the heating

01:10 <KathrynM> cats for sure

01:10 <PovAddict> when it's hot, you have nowhere to hide, and there is a limit to how much clothes you can get off

01:11 <PovAddict> except the swimming pool

01:11 <KathrynM> ugh laundry calls.  washing machine beeping

01:11 <MTughan> Yep.

01:11 <KathrynM> aircon saves my life in the summer

01:11 <PovAddict> KathrynM: cats sure know how to keep warm... an example to follow

01:11 <MTughan> They snuggle up with other warm things. :)

01:12 <lolcow> PovAddict: whenever i get in bed  the only thing i wear is a rubber

01:12 <KathrynM> thanks for sharing

01:12 <MTughan> Fridges, humans, blankets, that sort of thing.

01:12 <PovAddict> I have dual mode aircon... currently in 'heat' mode

01:12 <KathrynM> our heating is in the floor.

01:12 <KathrynM> nice in the winter for tosty warm toes

01:12 <PovAddict> oh that must be nice

01:13 <KathrynM> I don't sleep with it on.  I get up around 6 and turn it on.  Then it's perfect for when I really get up.

01:13 <MTughan> KathrynM: You could get a timer for it.

01:13 <PovAddict> someone in a boinc forum mentioned a plan for heavy CPU overclocking that involved female feet for cooling

01:14 <KathrynM> wouldn't work for me.  my feet are always hot

01:14 <KathrynM> MTughan, I doubt there's anything like a timer for it.  as you have to push a button to turn it on.

01:14 <PovAddict> I'd love to send my computer heat onto my frozen feet

01:15 <PovAddict> I saw a USB feet warmer once

01:17 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/6cl9m5> (at www.hardwaresphere.com)

01:26 <lolcow> PovAddict: you're not gonna get laid over the internet dude, go to bed

01:27 <PovAddict> who said I'm tying to get laid over the internet?

01:28 <lolcow> you

01:28 <PovAddict> quote?

01:28 <lolcow> what is this the 20's where everything is taken literally?

01:28 <lolcow> I read between the ascii characters

01:29 <lolcow> into the 4th dimension of your mind

01:29 <lolcow> if you knew I was wrong then you wouldn't be replying, but now you will cease to do so

01:29 <PovAddict> I'm not trying to get laid over the internet

01:30 <lolcow> then why are you debating this with me?

01:30 <PovAddict> or over the real world either

01:30 <PovAddict> because you said I am

01:30 <lolcow> ... and why are you telling me this?

01:31 <lolcow> PovAddict: that's quite hypocritical of you - you can easily ignore my boinc questions, yet you choose not to ignore this scenario

01:31 <lolcow> s/can/choose to/

01:33 <KathrynM> *sigh*  Dad coming tomorrow.  I guess I should like get serious about cleaning the apartment

01:33 <KathrynM> PovAddict, I'll be offline from Friday - Wednesday.  Starting in Busan then going to Seoul.

01:33 <MTughan> <lolcow> noooooooooooo

01:33 <MTughan> <lolcow> fix my boinc

01:33 * KathrynM needs a fairy godmother

01:33 <MTughan> You call that allowing him to ignore you?

01:34 <MTughan> Also, the feet warmer thing was in response to KathrynM, not you.

01:34 <lolcow> MTughan: that was after he ignored me, get over it

01:34 <MTughan> Wilco.

01:34 <PovAddict> taking your dad on a tour?

01:34 <lolcow> i'm not asking you to, but is it even POSSIBLE for you to wrap your literal female mind over this paradox?

01:34 <lolcow> it would be really easy for me to copy and paste the part where you said you would go to bed, but this is silly and childish

01:35 <KathrynM> yup

01:35 <KathrynM> going to go to the Kimchi museum in Seoul for sure

14:32 <PovAddict> yup

14:32 <PovAddict> yesterday

14:32 <zombie67> quick question

14:33 <PovAddict> http://thereifixedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/yoshi-keys.jpg

14:33 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/nd7d85> (at thereifixedit.com)

14:33 <zombie67> where is the "% of time running boinc" kept?

14:33 <zombie67> I had a machine in the shop for a couple of weeks, and now it can't get work because it thinks it won't return it in time

14:33 <hawmps> geezus.

14:33 <zombie67> so I want to set that back to 100%

14:36 <PovAddict> client_state.xml, near the bottom

14:36 <PovAddict> ah no, near the top, after <host_info>

14:36 <PovAddict> in <time_stats>

14:37 <zombie67> I tried changing that, but BOINC keeps changing it back

14:38 <PovAddict> ah hmm

14:39 <PovAddict> set <last_update> to:

14:39 <PovAddict> &time %s

14:39 <Romulus> PovAddict: 1248374387

14:40 *** mweltin has left #boinc

14:40 <zombie67> I changed the time in both state and state prev

14:41 <zombie67> now, all the projects say "project initialization"

14:41 <zombie67> and all the tasks are gone

14:41 <hawmps> oopsie..

14:42 <PovAddict> congratulations?

14:42 <PovAddict> if the client fails to load client_state (eg. because  you corrupted it in a bad edit :P), it loads the prev one instead

14:43 <PovAddict> if you f* up the state_prev file too, bye data

14:43 <zombie67> no.  didn't corrupt anything

14:43 <zombie67> I changed 0.23xxxx

14:43 <zombie67> to 1.000000

14:44 <zombie67> that was it

14:44 <PovAddict> and time stats?

14:44 <zombie67> nope

14:44 <PovAddict> sorry I mean <last_update>

14:44 <zombie67> nope

14:44 <zombie67> this happened before I could try that

14:44 <zombie67> in any case, I am getting work again

14:45 <zombie67> stupid BOINC

14:45 <zombie67> my new iMac is fast!

14:45 <PovAddict> well, looking at the code, TIME_STATS::parse() only ever returns an error if there is no </time_stats> tag

14:45 <zombie67> benchmarks 3434/12169

14:45 <hawmps> not bad..

14:46 <PovAddict> if one of the tags inside, like last_update, has invalid data, the client just puts a warning in the log and ignores it

14:46 <zombie67> oh well.  Thanks for the help.  gotta run

21:55 <jasong> Can I vent for second?

21:56 <jasong> People around me seem to think that job loss equates to inflation, when it doesn't

21:56 <jasong> Just because people have less money to spend DOESN'T mean each individual dollar is worth less

21:58 <MTughan> That usually means it's actually worth more.

21:58 <jasong> Emotionally, yeah, is that what you mean?

21:59 <MTughan> Not quite.

21:59 <jasong> I hate Obama, but for people in general http://www.inflationdata.com/inflation/Inflation_Rate/CurrentInflation.asp

21:59 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/cowsxv> (at www.inflationdata.com)

21:59 <MTughan> Say the GDP of a country stays about the same, but there's less money going around. (I know, we're in a recession, but theoretical) That means that each unit of money is worth more overall to fill in the GDP.

22:01 <MTughan> In the end, that's also the basis for inflation.

23:31 <zombie67> probably got corrupted during one of the reboots

23:31 <zombie67> anyway, they replaced it

23:31 <zombie67> kept happening

23:31 <zombie67> took it back in, they replaced the mobo

23:31 <zombie67> kept happening

23:31 <zombie67> they gave me a brnd new one!

23:32 <PovAddict> easiest way out

23:32 <zombie67> the old onw was the first intel model, 20" white

23:32 <PovAddict> now they have all the time in the world to figure out what part of the b0rked one is the cause

23:32 <zombie67> new one is 2.93ghz, 4gb, smoking fast!

23:32 <MTughan> Nice.

23:32 <PovAddict> wait the new one is *different*?

23:32 <zombie67> oh yeah

23:32 <MTughan> PovAddict: Well, they gave me a new one too. :)

23:32 <PovAddict> and they gave you it, for free?

23:32 <zombie67> old one was no longer made

23:33 <zombie67> yep

23:33 <MTughan> They tend to do that.

23:33 <PovAddict> looks like a good deal

23:33 <zombie67> double the RAM

23:33 <zombie67> newer processor, and way faster

23:33 <zombie67> much better graphics

23:33 <PovAddict> if you have a mac, and they stop making that model, and it's still in warranty... make it break and make it look like it's not your fault xD

23:33 <zombie67> double the HD size

23:33 <zombie67> apple care

23:34 <PovAddict> free upgrade :D

23:34 <MTughan> Well, the CPU fan on this MacBook is going already. I seem to have a tendency to do that.

23:34 <zombie67> costs $300, but you get satisfaction no matter what for three years

23:34 <zombie67> What kind of notebook?

23:34 <MTughan> I said, MacBook.

23:34 <MTughan> Unibody aluminum.

23:34 <zombie67> nice!

23:35 <MTughan> It is, except for the glass screen and the CPU fan.

23:35 <zombie67> I have had my 17" core duo for a couple years now, running BOINC full blast, no problem

23:35 <zombie67> you don't like the shiny screen?

23:35 <MTughan> I hate it.

23:35 <zombie67> it wasn't available when I bought minr

23:35 <zombie67> mine

23:36 <MTughan> And despite their claims of better colour, my 3-year old matte screen on the desktop has much richer colour.

23:36 <zombie67> if there are windows behind you, it can suck

23:36 <MTughan> You can really see the difference in the reds and greens.

23:36 <zombie67> colour...look at you...all european and stuff

23:36 <MTughan> Hey, I like my colours. :)

23:36 <MTughan> Doesn't help that I do a bit of image editing too.

23:36 <zombie67> grey!

23:37 <MTughan> Actually, blue's the best colour to work with on this screen.

23:37 <PovAddict> grey or gray?

23:37 <PovAddict> povray scripting language supports both spellings (same for colour) to avoid trouble :D

23:38 <zombie67> bleu

23:38 <zombie67> blue
