16:16 <schnee> Hi folks.

16:17 *** RedBlade7 has quit IRC

16:19 <schnee> I'm new to BOINC, so please forgive me if this is a stupid question, but is there anything wrong with the project? I can't get to the SETI@home website anymore, and I'm running out of tasks to complete, too - but it seems my client can neither upload its results nor download more work.

16:19 <PovAddict> "the project" is SETI?

16:20 <schnee> Yes. (That, or BOINC - I'm not entirely clear on the relationship between the two, to be honest.)

16:21 <schnee> (Although I'm just reading up on it...)

16:22 <PovAddict> Eric Korpela, one of SETI admins, reports: "Yeah, our database machine crashed.  I can't get in to campus.  Matt's nowhere to be found.  Jeff's in Nepal.  Dan's in South Africa."

16:23 <schnee> Ah! Yes, that would probably explain it - I hope they'll be able to fix things soon there.

16:26 <schnee> Hmm, here's another question, if you don't mind: is it possible to tell the client to download more tasks than it would by default? The GPU tasks in particular seem to go through very quickly, so it didn't take much time before I ran out of work to do now, and it'd be nice if I could make sure my box would stay busy for a bit longer in situations like this. ;)

16:26 <PovAddict> well there are settings for that

16:26 <PovAddict> but the normal place to edit them is in the project website

16:28 <schnee> Ah, I'll check when the site's back up, then - I looked through the preferences in the BOINC Manager application now but didn't find anything.

16:28 <schnee> Thanks!

16:28 <PovAddict> you can edit it from the manager too, but it gets confusing if you do that

16:28 <schnee> Ah, I see.

16:28 <PovAddict> BOINC will stop listening to any changes you do from the website

16:28 <PovAddict> as soon as you touch *any* setting locally (from the manager)

16:28 <schnee> Ah, yes - better to do it the "proper" way, then.

16:29 <schnee> Thanks again! It's good to know the problem with uploading results/downloading work isn't on my side, at least.

16:29 <schnee> Take care! :)

18:28 *** Rookie_69 has joined #boinc

18:32 <Rookie_69> OK... I bit the bullet... Bought a video card... installed and updated and updated and installed... It admits I have an acceptable video card and downloads... nothing. Do I have to phone up a buddy or something?

18:32 <Rookie_69> Ok... Maybe I should wait for SETI to come back online.

18:33 <CoderForLife> You need to wait for Installer version 3.0 to come out.

18:34 <Rookie_69> Don't toy with me... I may bite...

18:34 <CoderForLife> OK - I admit I was painting too rosy of a picture

18:35 <Rookie_69> Dinner is still mostly frozen, so I'm hungry.

18:36 <CoderForLife> Is that unusual up there in the tundra?

18:39 *** Rookie_69_ has joined #boinc

18:39 <Rookie_69_> OK... Tundra... The ground is frozen here 11 1/2 months out of the year...

18:40 <Rookie_69_> Hmm... Somebody doing strange stuff.

18:46 <Rookie_69_> Doug, It's your fault I spent this money... Talk to me.

18:48 <Rookie_69_> OK... It's my fault I spent the money... but talk to me anyways.

18:49 <Rookie_69_> Nickserv seems to want me to melt some of the local mud...

18:56 *** Rookie_69 has quit IRC

18:56 <Rookie_69_> I spent two months worth of grocery money on a video card... it better start crunching soon...

18:56 *** Rookie_69_ is now known as Rookie_69

18:59 <Rookie_69> Chicken is in slow cooker... I wonder how it got it's name?..

19:19 *** Rookie_69_ has joined #boinc

19:34 <jasong> Is there a web page that explains all the GPU enabled projects?  Not necessarily technical stuff, but what cards can be used, what projects and what's being accomplished/attempted

20:29 <jackygrahamez_> hi guys!!!

20:29 <jackygrahamez_> LOL

20:30 <jackygrahamez_> has anyone been flaming?

20:50 *** owneroperator has joined #boinc

20:53 <owneroperator> Does WCG always update BOINC or not?

20:53 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

20:53 <PovAddict> that makes no sense

20:54 <owneroperator> My working copy of WCG (World Community Grid) uses BOINC

20:54 <PovAddict> WCG is a boinc project, yes

20:56 <owneroperator> WCG

20:56 <Romulus> Title: World Community Grid - Home (at

20:56 <owneroperator> ok, so if I have a running copy (version) of WCG I have also a copy of BOINC...

20:57 <PovAddict> WCG is a project, not a program

20:57 <PovAddict> maybe what you have is the WCG-skinned BOINC

20:57 <owneroperator> Yes

20:58 <owneroperator> But I'm logged in to WCG for stats and program control

20:59 <owneroperator> ie. WCG down and uploads all projects running and keeps the data stats

21:01 <owneroperator> my current BOINC version:

21:10 <owneroperator> current version: 6.6.38 for Windows (6.69 MB)

21:12 <owneroperator> I have the new version.  Thanks for all the fish.

21:12 *** owneroperator has left #boinc

21:26 <Tank_Master> uhhh...????

21:26 <Tank_Master> huh?

21:26 <Tank_Master> sounds like he may have the WCG boinc AND the normal boinc?

21:26 <Tank_Master> lol

21:33 <jackygrahamez_> ah question is do they update the server code :-)

21:44 <Tank_Master> WCG?

21:44 <Romulus> Somebody said WCG is a, er, poor credit project, Tank_Master

21:44 <Tank_Master> forget WCG

21:44 <Romulus> I hear ya.

21:44 <Tank_Master> WCG uses their own backend server code

22:01 <PovAddict> no they don't

22:01 <PovAddict> they have lots of custom stuff, but the scheduler is BOINC's

22:08 *** PovAddict has quit IRC

22:08 *** PovAddict has joined #boinc

22:18 <jackygrahamez_> I sat down for Kevin Reeds presentation. Its close to the boinc server frequently they update I'm not sure.

22:19 <PovAddict> you going to the workshop?

22:19 <jackygrahamez_> yes are you going :-)

22:19 <jackygrahamez_> ?

22:19 <PovAddict> no

22:20 <jackygrahamez_> too bad

22:20 <jackygrahamez_> I should learn some spanish before I go

22:21 <jackygrahamez_> so I'm trying to update wrappers again :-(

22:21 <jackygrahamez_> why is mac always so difficult?

22:23 <PovAddict> no idea

22:23 <PovAddict> I usually just ask MTughan

22:23 <PovAddict> but he's away

22:23 <PovAddict> for the *week* or so

22:26 <jackygrahamez_> going through some old emails

22:28 <PovAddict> I'm busy with some messy code right now but I could try helping afterwards
