00:00 <PovAddict> if you're low on black ink, it offers mixing the colors to form an ugly but usable black
00:00 <PovAddict> if you're out of black ink, the printer won't work
00:00 <efc> Nice
00:00 <PovAddict> which is when you'd need the "mix colors" feature the most
00:00 <PovAddict> if any cartridge is empty, it won't print
00:00 <efc> Color lasers have gotten pretty decent. But I think they've started to rip on toner too.
00:00 <PovAddict> if you're out of yellow, you can't print a black-only document
00:01 <PovAddict> also, every other model of the same manufacturer has different and incompatible cartridges
00:02 <PovAddict> so if your printer breaks, and you decide to buy a new one instead of fixing it (eg. out of warranty), you can be almost certain the ink from the old printer won't work on it
00:02 <efc> Yeah
00:03 <efc> I think the ink is more expensive than platinum on a per ounce basis
00:03 <PovAddict> it's 1 am and my sister is trying to print homework for tomorrow, and here I am, searching for a black cartridge (I thought we had bought one already)
00:03 <PovAddict> I found one, and it turned out to be for the older printer we had, which decided to stop printing black (so we bought the new one)
00:04 <PovAddict> the cartridge is a bit bigger and has the electrical pins on the front instead of the back
00:04 <PovAddict> I'm sure the design change is intentional incompatibility
00:05 <PovAddict> she also can't just print it in blue, because the printer *refuses* to print if out of black, for no real reason
00:05 <PovAddict> if I had money, I'd invest in "open source printers"
00:06 <Tank_Master> ours uses the color carterage when you prin in black n white mode
00:06 <PovAddict> open source drivers, open source and replaceable firmware, and explicit permission and specs for anyone to make cartridges...
00:06 <Tank_Master> it also moncomizes the document
00:06 <Tank_Master> so you have no grayscale
00:07 <PovAddict> since we can't subsidize with ink, that will probably make the printers quite expensive; but so be it
00:08 <Tank_Master> isnt is usesally cheeper just to buy a new printer?
00:08 <PovAddict> well that's how I got my next-to-last EPSON
00:08 <PovAddict> we went to buy ink for the HP printer
00:08 <PovAddict> turned out a brand new EPSON printer was cheaper
00:08 <Tank_Master> just sad
00:09 <PovAddict> lasted like a year before it stopped working
00:09 <PovAddict> but that's product quality in the 21st century
00:11 <PovAddict> year 2009, my sister made her homework on the computer and is now rewriting it on paper at 1 am thanks to printer maker greed
00:13 <PovAddict> idiots
00:15 <PovAddict> hmm isn't printer ink an investment actually?
00:15 <PovAddict> buy cartridges, you can be sure they'll be more expensive next month
00:15 <Tank_Master> lol
00:15 <Tank_Master> crags list them :P
00:15 <PovAddict> oh wait, incompatibility across models... maybe that's why
00:16 <PovAddict> buy cartridges, and they will be soon worthless because they don't work on any new printer
00:16 <Tank_Master> ahh, good point
00:19 <PovAddict> "some cartridges cost over seven times more than vintage champagne per millilitre"
00:20 <Tank_Master> heh

15:48 <Tank_Master> mean
15:48 <Tank_Master> meah*
15:49 <yomshleeshee> well, honestly I haven't used it since version 6 came out
15:49 <Tank_Master> stupid bot
15:49 <Tank_Master> Im using 6.6.38
15:49 <Tank_Master> havent realy had meny issues with it
15:49 <Tank_Master> youll need 6.6.x to run programs on the video card
15:50 <yomshleeshee> oh, berkeley's page says 6.4.5 is the current version. is that a beta?
15:50 <Tank_Master> for what os?
15:50 <yomshleeshee> XP
15:50 <PovAddict> depends on your definition of 'beta'
15:50 <Tank_Master> should be 6.6.36
15:50 <Tank_Master> pov's right :P
15:50 <Tank_Master> its open source, its always beta
15:50 <PovAddict> some could argue boinc has always been beta quality :)
15:50 <Tank_Master> yeah
15:51 <yomshleeshee> well, there's always under development and there's testing a few things before it goes out on the main page
15:51 <yomshleeshee> no doubt
15:51 <PovAddict> yomshleeshee: well, since the GPU stuff, things were released according to PR stuff, not according to how much they were tested
15:51 <MTughan> Tank_Master: 6.4.x or later for CUDA.
15:51 <Tank_Master> ahh, 4 works?
15:51 <Tank_Master> thought it was only 6
15:51 <MTughan> That was the first release for CUDA.
15:51 <yomshleeshee> i see. well GPU's not an option for me so. no big deal
15:52 <PovAddict> 6.4 was released the day nVidia wanted it to be released, to match a press release from them
15:52 <PovAddict> even though a serious scheduling bug was reported a few days before
15:52 <yomshleeshee> bummer
15:52 <Romulus> Title: Download BOINC client software (at boinc.berkeley.edu)
15:52 <Tank_Master> 6.4.5 is the older version
15:52 <yomshleeshee> isee
15:52 <PovAddict> there were some later 6.4.x's that fixed that, tho
15:52 <MTughan> Isn't it 6.4.7 now?
15:53 <PovAddict> anyway, things haven't really worked right since they added GPU, so I'm sticking to 6.2
15:53 <Tank_Master> for windows, yes mt
15:53 <yomshleeshee> ok, now I see. I'm on my linux machine so it sent me to that page and there's a "newer" version for windows
15:53 <Tank_Master> im running on my gpu, so I dont have a choice
15:53 <Tank_Master> 6.6.36 is for all OSs
15:54 <yomshleeshee> i see
15:54 <yomshleeshee> cool then I'll give it a go after taking a break
15:54 <Tank_Master> if your wanting to run on a geforce 8800 or higher card, youll need the later for better support
15:55 <Tank_Master> ATI still isnt supported yet
15:55 <yomshleeshee> me? No, g-card. just mboard graphics :-(
15:55 <Tank_Master> they you might be fine with what you have now

16:13 <PovAddict> now it doesn't matter anymore :)

17:42 <Tank_Master> I dont use cloaks...
17:42 <yomshleeshee> i noticed
17:43 <jasong1> Quick question about netbooks when you guys have time?
17:43 <yomshleeshee> don't care about IP and stuff? i mean firewall's a necessity, but just giving out the IP is another thing.
17:43 <Tank_Master> go for it jasong1
17:44 <Tank_Master> if someone really want to know the ip, its not that hard to find
17:44 <jasong1> Which would use up more power, a laptop dedicated to processing it's own data, or a monitor that simply sends commands to a desktop computer and simply wirelessly displays the video?
17:45 <jasong1> I know that a while back, decades ago, they had something similar, except not wireless
17:45 <Tank_Master> overall the laptop would consume less
17:46 <Tank_Master> as for the display, the wierless monitor

18:29 <FreeLarry58> ugg looks like seti really going for long wu's now - at least for my older machines -- times have doubled and tripled over last 2 weeks to complete the wu's
18:34 *** jasongopher1 has quit IRC
18:44 <yomshleeshee> hmm. how are einstein wu's compared to they used to be? anyone know?
18:44 <FreeLarry58> about the same it appears
18:44 <Tank_Master> I dont think they are much different
18:44 <xcamel> mostly the same
18:44 <Tank_Master> though a cusa app is being developed
18:44 <yomshleeshee> good to know
18:44 <Tank_Master> cuda*
18:45 <yomshleeshee> yeah, no cuda here :-/
18:47 <FreeLarry58> seti cuda wu's went from around 2 hrs on a 8400 to over 9 hrs
18:47 <FreeLarry58> and some much longer depending on angle i guess
18:49 <FreeLarry58> regular wu's on that machine now pushing 15 hrs
18:49 * FreeLarry58 guess good thing to have over 20000 pending credits on regular and beta seti

20:21 <zombie67> i need help
20:21 <zombie67> BOINC won't use all my ram
20:21 <zombie67> I have it set to 95%/99%
20:22 <zombie67> yet it is waiting for ram
20:22 <PovAddict> "waiting for memory"?
20:22 <PovAddict> is it set to "run always" or "run according to preferences"?
20:22 <zombie67> run always
20:22 <zombie67> is there a pastebin for pictures?
20:22 <Romulus> Title: Imagebin - Upload an Image (at imagebin.ca)
20:23 <Romulus> Title: snap.png (at imagebin.ca)
20:23 *** synapt has quit IRC
20:23 <zombie67> the machine has 4gb
20:23 *** synapt has joined #boinc
20:24 <PovAddict> what the hell is BoincProjectUpda...?
20:24 <zombie67> it is an app that you can set to request work every x
20:24 <zombie67> ssh!
20:24 <zombie67> ;)
20:24 <zombie67> now back to the problem
20:25 <zombie67> why won't it see/use all my ram?
20:25 <PovAddict> where did you set it to 99%?
20:25 <zombie67> computing prefs
20:26 <PovAddict> web?
20:27 <Romulus> Title: snap2.png (at imagebin.ca)
20:27 <PovAddict> are you sure you don't have "local prefs" on that computer?
20:28 <zombie67> I did not, but I cleared it out just now anyway
20:28 <zombie67> still no change
20:29 <zombie67> and by just now, i meant before I took the snapshot
20:29 <zombie67> just now, it started using all the RAM
20:29 <zombie67> but for at least a half hour, it was stuck like the the snap
20:32 <zombie67> oh well, chalk it up to another BOINC bizarre unexplainable behavior
20:35 <KathrynM> arrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhh! I can't eat my breakfast (yogurt) without a little kitten nose trying to get some
20:35 <PovAddict> I'd think that's cute :)
20:37 <KathrynM> and all hell breaks loose if I happen to have a glass of milk
20:38 <PovAddict> give her some milk, then get your own milk and *hide*
20:40 <KathrynM> lol
20:44 <zombie67> wow.
20:45 <zombie67> i just turned off HT, because I am running TLP, which uses a lot of ram. so this way a fewer number of tasks would run.
20:45 <zombie67> the rebooted.
20:46 <zombie67> in the past, BOINC was always smart enough to see the change in CPUs, and then re-run benchmarks
20:46 <zombie67> not this time.
20:46 <zombie67> still running 8 tasks, when there are only 4 cores
20:46 <zombie67> yep
20:46 <zombie67> ncpus is still -1
20:47 <PovAddict> -1?!
20:47 <Romulus> -1 is mine, PovAddict
20:47 <zombie67> -1 = no change to the real thing
20:47 <zombie67> used to be 0, but that changed to -1 so that people could test GPUs and stuff
20:48 <zombie67> manually running benchmarks fixed it
20:52 <zombie67> nope, I take it back. It's back to running 8 tasks
20:52 <zombie67> WTF?!
20:52 *** Aeternus has quit IRC
20:52 *** freakazoid0223 has joined #boinc
20:53 <zombie67> well, if it's going to run 8 regardless, I guess it would be best to turn HT back on.
20:53 <zombie67> stoopid boinc
20:54 <PovAddict> lol
20:54 <PovAddict> hold on
20:57 <PovAddict> can't figure out any possible cause from the code
20:59 <PovAddict> if the cc_config setting is >= 0 (which it's not, since it's -1), ncpus is set to that
20:59 <zombie67> yeah
20:59 <PovAddict> if the host detection managed to figure out how many CPUs exist, ncpus is set to that
20:59 <PovAddict> otherwise, it's set to 1, as a fallback
21:01 <zombie67> my fallback: stoopid boinc
21:01 <PovAddict> afterwards, if ncpus isn't 0 (which can only happen if you set it to 0 in cc_config), it checks for your global prefs
21:01 <PovAddict> for max CPUs to use, etc
21:02 <zombie67> right
21:02 <PovAddict> finally, if ncpus is now different from the number it had when this bunch of code started, benchmarks are re-run, CPU scheduler is triggered, and work fetch is probably triggered
21:03 <zombie67> like i said, it is usually smart enough to notice when I turn on/off HT
21:03 <zombie67> but not now
21:03 <zombie67> oh well
21:03 <PovAddict> there are no debugging messages around this
21:04 *** yomshleeshee has quit IRC
21:04 <PovAddict> no log flags you could turn on in cc_config
21:05 <zombie67> haha!
21:05 <zombie67> now I turned HT back on.
21:05 <zombie67> 8 threads per task manager
21:05 <zombie67> and BOINC is running only 4 tasks
21:05 <zombie67> the exact opposite
21:05 <PovAddict> what the...
21:06 <zombie67> no waiting for memory messages either
21:06 <zombie67> okay, that's a waste too
21:07 <zombie67> I will go back, turn off HT, and set cc_config to 4 manually
21:07 <PovAddict> wait
21:07 <PovAddict> try restarting the boinc client
21:07 <zombie67> I am running benchmarks
21:07 <PovAddict> k
21:08 <zombie67> btw, I am turning HT on/off via bios, so that means rebooting every time
21:08 <zombie67> it said number of CPUs: 4
21:08 <zombie67> quitting/restarting now
21:10 <zombie67> restart messages says it found 8
21:10 <jasong1> When Sony admitted that NVIDIA chips caused "distorted video," does that include the video freezing for a few seconds while the audio keeps going? I'd always assumed it was simply because the graphics card sucked, but now I wonder
21:10 <zombie67> ding! running 8
21:11 <zombie67> now I am going to try going back to my original plan
21:11 <zombie67> turn off HT, run only 4 tasks
21:14 <zombie67> brb
21:14 *** zombie67 has quit IRC
21:21 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc
21:21 <zombie67> yep same problem
21:22 <zombie67> start up message said it found 4 CPUs, but ran 8 anyway
21:22 <zombie67> setting the ncpus to 4 fixed it
