11:40 <zombie67> i think the freehal problem is related to DCF

11:40 <zombie67> after running over night, I now have 2 or 3

11:41 <zombie67> We'll see if that trend continuers over time

11:44 <zombie67> how do I see the DCF for a project again?

11:48 <MTughan> IIRC, it's only in client_state.xml.

11:48 <MTughan> boinc_cmd should show it, but I don't know if you use that.

11:49 <zombie67> what does a DCF of 100 mean?

11:49 <zombie67> what is normal (no correction)?

11:50 <MTughan> Normal is 1 I believe.

11:51 <MTughan> 100 should mean that the tasks are actually 100x longer than fpops_est.

11:51 <MTughan> (Which isn't good)

11:51 <zombie67> this is a non-cpu project

11:51 <MTughan> Well, whatever value BOINC is using for the estimated task length then.

11:51 <zombie67> so why should anything be looking at fpops?

11:52 <MTughan> I believe DCF is used as project_estimated_time * DCF = estimated_time.

11:52 <PovAddict> DCF, flops, etc. are irrelevant for non-CPU-intensive

11:52 <PovAddict> non-CPU-intensive is a bit of an afterthought...

11:53 <zombie67> I reset it to 1.  Waiting for it to ask for work

11:55 <zombie67> still, I wonder if there is a bug in BOINC.

11:55 <zombie67> did it just grow somehow, over time, and then hit the max of 100?

11:56 <PovAddict> probably

11:57 <PovAddict> heh...

11:57 <PovAddict> plugged in my uncle's camera to the computer, to download the pics my grandad took with it

11:58 <PovAddict> $ ls -l

11:58 <PovAddict> -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 49152 2009-07-19 20:57 fun.xls.exe

11:58 <PovAddict> fun.xls.exe? gee doesn't that look suspicious...

11:58 <zombie67> only got 3 tasks.  but not sure *why*

11:58 <PovAddict> downloading clamav

11:59 <MTughan> PovAddict: I'd bet the application icon was Excel.

11:59 <PovAddict> I'd have to start wineexplorer or something like that to see the .exe icon

12:00 <PovAddict> but the autorun.inf tries to start the .exe automatically, so...

12:00 <PovAddict> (I'm not sure if that actually works on non-CDs)

12:00 <MTughan> It does.

12:00 <MTughan> I believe Vista and 7 have tightened it up, but XP definitely does.

15:51 *** RomW has joined #boinc

16:07 <PovAddict> I really don't know what to think about FreeHAL

16:09 <PovAddict> the program is written in some kind of stupid custom language that looks more like English

16:09 <PovAddict> it's converted into perl using relatively trivial replacements

16:10 <PovAddict> for example "do be_slow without arguments" is converted into "be_slow();"

16:11 <PovAddict> that be_slow() thing is put into all inner loops to pretend the app is non-CPU-intensive

16:14 *** jackygrahamez_ has joined #boinc

16:14 <PovAddict> and there are other really stupid things being done

16:15 <PovAddict> however, the natural language stuff appears to be real and working, but I can't judge much because it's German

16:16 <jasong1> Okay, maybe I'm stupid, but if the LHC people are willing to spend billions to make the particle accelerator, why won't they spend a few thousand or so to turn the news they post into an RSS feed?

16:17 <jasong1> Yes, off-topic, but I'm venting ;)

16:17 <PovAddict> which news?

16:32 *** jackygrahamez___ has quit IRC

16:38 <jasong1> oh, nothing new, they started up the magnets.  They're still saying it'll start up again in  November

16:41 <jasong1> They say the Flash Forward people were inspired by the LHC, but apparently in a later episode because I didn't notice a mention of it in the pilot
