18:19 <PovAddict> since there are ignored bugs in 6.8 too
18:19 <KathrynM> whoops forgot about them
18:19 <KathrynM> make us 6th class
18:20 <KathrynM> I'd like to kill the parents who send their precious snowflakes to school while sick.
18:20 <KathrynM> funny thing is, with the whole pig flu terror, we've been using that waterless hand cleaner like crazy
18:21 <KathrynM> I start using the cleaner. I get sick
18:21 <KathrynM> Obviously, to stay healthy, I should not wash my hands.
18:21 <PovAddict> there was a study a few years ago...
18:21 <PovAddict> apparently a computer keyboard has a LOT more germs than a toilet seat, by far
18:22 <KathrynM> oh yeah
18:22 <PovAddict> makes sense if you think about it... nobody touches the toilet seat to avoid getting germs, but actually that makes nobody put germs on the seat
18:23 <PovAddict> the part of the butt that touches the seat is unlikely to have many germs
18:24 <PovAddict> yet some people commute by train and subway touching lots of things that are touched by a million people each day, then arrive to work and sit at the computer without washing their hands first
18:24 <PovAddict> what's more likely to have germs after that...

18:55 <Tank_Master> now thats an interesting bug...
18:56 <Tank_Master> BOINC isnt getting work from anasi because it wont finish in time...
18:56 <Tank_Master> anasi is a non CPU project

19:06 <CoderForLife> howdy howdy howdy
19:06 <CoderForLife> how is everyone?
19:07 <Tank_Master> good
19:08 <CoderForLife> are you speaking for everyone, or is everyone not speaking?
19:09 <CoderForLife> heh, nuf said

19:10 <CoderForLife> hi PovAddict quail and Tank_Master
19:11 <quail> CoderForLife: hi mate, how are you?
19:11 <CoderForLife> I had a good report from the doctor today
19:11 <quail> nice
19:11 <CoderForLife> indeed
19:12 <CoderForLife> and then spent $1400 on car maintenance
19:12 <Tank_Master> lol
19:12 <quail> so they took the insane bracelet off of you finally, hehe
19:12 <Tank_Master> so you were fine, but not the car
19:12 <Tank_Master> better than the other way around
19:12 <CoderForLife> the car feels better
19:12 <wdsmia> lol
19:13 <wdsmia> *lo Don
19:13 <CoderForLife> behold, Iowa awakens
19:13 <CoderForLife> howdy Doug
19:14 <CoderForLife> it's a good day when the doctor is happy with you and says you're the "poster child of progress"
19:14 <quail> 'lo Doug
19:15 <wdsmia> *lo q
19:16 * quail on 3g atm
19:16 * CoderForLife points to his poster child portrait and certficate plaque
19:16 * wdsmia looks for a large thunder storm to send to Ohio
19:16 <quail> heading down to Goolwa
19:16 <CoderForLife> the weather folks are whispering some fearful predictions for Sunday
19:17 <CoderForLife> some invasion from the south
19:17 <CoderForLife> Sounds like a good Coding day =)
19:17 <wdsmia> thats ok your football team cant play when its dry
19:18 <CoderForLife> what team would that be?
19:18 <CoderForLife> we have a professional football team in Cincinnati? since when?
19:19 <Tank_Master> lol
19:20 * CoderForLife shoots off a fireworks display that spells "6.9" in the sky
19:20 <wdsmia> thats right my mistake you dont even have a good collage them
19:21 <CoderForLife> um - are you dissing the collegiate champions the University of Cincinnati Bearcats?
19:21 <Tank_Master> lol
19:21 <wdsmia> Bearcats? thought they were kiddycats
19:23 <CoderForLife> http://www.gobearcats.com/sports/m-footbl/cinn-m-footbl-body.html read it and fear for you life
19:24 <Tank_Master> huh, they play OSU tomorrow
19:24 <CoderForLife> the Beavers?
19:24 <Romulus> the Beavers are in there for a while, CoderForLife
19:24 <CoderForLife> right Rommie
19:24 <Tank_Master> yeah
19:25 <Tank_Master> forget beavers
19:25 <CoderForLife> for about 2 minutes
19:25 <Tank_Master> forget the beavers
19:25 <Romulus> 10-4!
19:25 <CoderForLife> looks like Cincy is 2-0 right now
19:26 <CoderForLife> lol they won 70-3!
19:27 <quail> w00t we back
19:27 <CoderForLife> wb
19:27 <quail> had a 3g drop out
19:27 <quail> hehe
19:27 <Tank_Master> bummer
19:27 <Tank_Master> should get 4g
19:27 <quail> lol
19:27 <Tank_Master> it drops out faster
19:27 <CoderForLife> are you moved quail?
19:28 <quail> CoderForLife: not yet, prob within a month
19:28 <CoderForLife> you've been planning it for quite some time
19:28 <CoderForLife> was there some construction involved?
19:29 <quail> yep, the house
19:29 <CoderForLife> that would do it
19:29 <Tank_Master> thats just a monor thing though
19:29 <Tank_Master> minor*
19:30 <quail> CoderForLife: and we still got the shed and floors to finish
19:30 <quail> and horse yards to build
19:31 <quail> brb
19:33 <CoderForLife> a horse must have gotten loose...
19:39 <Tank_Master> need to tighten it then
19:40 * wdsmia thows a horse shoe at Tank_Master
19:41 * Tank_Master trows a horse shoe crab at wdsmia
19:41 * wdsmia cooks it and has dinner

22:09 <jasong> If I may ask a totally ignorant question, which would use less power in a wireless environment with a touchscreen, and I'm only talking about the power requirements of the touchscreen in this case. (1)A totally uncompressed stream where raw data is sent to the device, (2)compressing the data and having the screen uncompress it, or (3)a combination of the two?
22:10 <PovAddict> depends :)
22:10 <jasong> lol
22:10 <jasong> figures
22:10 <PovAddict> actually, wtf :P
22:10 <PovAddict> that's not just a touchscreen if it can receive wireless data
22:10 <jasong> I'm wanting an internet tablet, and I'm exploring what the problems are
22:11 <PovAddict> ok so it's a tablet with a touchscreen :)
22:11 <PovAddict> and wireless :)
22:11 <jasong> Okay, I may have phrased it badly
22:11 <PovAddict> and what would be the 'data'?
22:11 <PovAddict> a bitmap to be shown on the screen?
22:12 <jasong> Well, let's consider each scenario separately, there's only text option, there's static pictures, there's a small amount of animation, and then there's full-blown video
22:12 <PovAddict> uncompressed video is not feasible anywhere
22:12 <jasong> Where's the chokepoint if we're not spending a ton of money?
22:12 <jasong> oh
22:13 <PovAddict> even on a modern computer, if the video is fairly high res, I'm not sure if your hard disk would catch up
22:13 <jasong> No, I mean the transmission from the server is uncompressed
22:14 <jasong> The server itself would do the uncompressing
22:14 <PovAddict> I mean if a hard disk cannot cope with the data rate, I don't think a wireless network would
22:14 <jasong> ahhhh
22:14 <PovAddict> let's say 720p
22:14 <jasong> Okay, but would reducing compression reduce the power requirements of the tablet?
22:14 <PovAddict> &math calc 1280*720 * 30 * 3
22:14 <Romulus> PovAddict: 82944000
22:14 <PovAddict> &math convert [math calc 1280*720 * 30 * 3] bytes to MB
22:14 <Romulus> PovAddict: 82.944
22:15 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc
22:15 <PovAddict> there you go, 82 megabytes per second of video
22:15 <jasong> wow
22:15 <PovAddict> that's what "uncompressed" means :)
22:15 <jasong> closer to 83
22:15 <PovAddict> now, for video there are all sorts of different compression codecs
22:16 <PovAddict> with widely different tradeoffs on file size (= data rate), quality, and CPU requirements for decoding
22:16 <jasong> complicated
22:16 <jasong> I'm mean, it's sounding very complicated
22:16 <PovAddict> you can't get it small, good, and fast
22:16 <PovAddict> you have to lose on something :)
22:16 <jasong> pick 2, huh?
22:16 <PovAddict> pretty much
22:17 <PovAddict> you can decode full-blown MPEG4 with lower power requirement if you get specialized hardware
22:17 <PovAddict> but then you lose on a 4th component called "price" :)
22:18 <jasong> Yeah, that's the rub, you get a tiny device that's really cool, but it destroys your money
22:19 <PovAddict> it'd cost less (because it'd need a less advanced CPU) to use MPEG1
22:19 <jasong> Of course, if a maker who isn't Apple can get in the market, the hit on your wallet goes down at least 25% ;)
22:19 <PovAddict> but then you get either less video quality or higher file size
23:15 <wdsmia> Highest World position ever 51 at 2009-09-18 should break top 50 tomarrow :)
