03:44 <miha> oh

03:44 <TheJollyRedGiant> I hear DC was meant to get 18" of snow overnight

03:44 <miha> well you drink lots of warm alchoholic drinks as excuse to get warm :D

03:44 <miha> that we call xmas spirit :D

03:45 <TheJollyRedGiant> LOL....sounds good

03:46 <miha>

03:46 <Romulus> Title: Mulled wine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at

03:46 <TheJollyRedGiant> I'm wondering which wine to serve for xmas lunch

03:46 <TheJollyRedGiant> to go with the roast turkey

03:48 *** synapt has joined #boinc

03:49 <miha> if you read that recipe...

03:49 <miha> The temperature should not be allowed to rise above 78.4° Celsius (173.12° Fahrenheit) in order to avoid evaporation of the alcohol.

03:49 <miha> :D

03:49 <miha> you must do that wine cookning right :D

03:50 <TheJollyRedGiant> my sister used to make it...never got into it

03:52 <miha> didnt try myself either

03:52 <miha> but i know a good drink when i taste it lol

03:55 <TheJollyRedGiant> lol...too true

03:56 * miha is surprised that one of americans on facebook with same last name

03:56 <miha> i marked "i like" a photo he posted.. some girl drinks something :D

03:57 * TheJollyRedGiant wonders what facebook is ;p

03:57 <miha> and he asked me in my eastern european language "pretty girl, isnt she?" i answered "very pretty" :D

03:57 <miha> oh

03:57 <miha> facebook is the Forum of Forums :D

03:58 <miha> you can make friends with CNN and rest of the important folks :D

03:58 * TheJollyRedGiant slaps forehead

03:58 <miha> Obama writes to you if you're his fan :D

03:58 <TheJollyRedGiant> ahh

03:59 <miha> CNN's BackStory guy Michael writes to his fans every working day :D

03:59 <miha> CNN adopted the technology nicely

04:00 <miha> yesterday i watched their CNN + Youtube debate on climate change... i'm no big fan of the climate tax movement.. but it was rather cool to see it live globally :D

04:00 *** efc has quit IRC

04:00 <TheJollyRedGiant> that's one way to get the younger generations involved

04:01 <miha> well that's good way to keep CNN relevant in changing times.. adapt to all the sources you can get

04:01 <TheJollyRedGiant> brb

04:01 <miha> iReport is good idea...

04:02 <miha> it's more likely someone with good mobile phone will be at some unexpected event, than the professional tv crew

11:07 *** Erkan_Yilmaz has quit IRC

11:07 <ennir> miha: that is the problem, i am here in computer pools and i am talking about 60 computers

11:08 <ennir> miha: hoping that they could share one version within linux

11:08 <ennir> miha: heating fell out, so that motivates me

11:09 <miha> :D

11:09 <miha> well, data directory should be seperate for each client

11:10 <ennir> yeah but this sucks :(

11:10 <ennir> too much hassle to deploy

11:10 <ennir> i hoped for something quite simple, and fast to setup

11:10 <miha> no idea, perhaps there is :D

11:10 <ennir> so i prolly need to program one solution :)

11:10 <miha>

11:10 <Romulus> <> (at

11:11 <ennir> ad hoc stuff is always cool, but never important later when you would have time to setup :(

11:11 <ennir> yea

11:11 <ennir> but it is possible with linux

11:12 <ennir> and i am talking about linux here :)

11:12 <ennir> but always copy and stuff is no good

11:13 <miha> no idea how it works if multiple clients try to write same file

11:13 <miha> but there's source for everyone to see

11:13 <ennir> yeah that does not work

11:13 <ennir> but the copy part does

11:13 <ennir> yet then i have an inflexible solution, with directories for each and stuff

11:14 <ennir> need to automate all this with scripting to be of use

11:14 <miha> i guess

11:14 <ennir> hope for and easy (and lazy) solution drove he here :)

11:17 <ennir> miha: a way pops up in my mind a script that creates as many dirs as necessary, and useing them, then after leaving college it could next time check for unfinished jobs and delete their folders after completion of one packet

11:17 <ennir> and therefore resume old installations w/o problems :)

11:18 <miha> directory pool? :D

11:18 <ennir> yeah in a way

11:18 <ennir> that way i can scale up to 100 without problems, and then work the pakets off lateron

11:18 <ennir> since i will have open pakets that should be finished lateron

11:19 <ennir> so i could use peak performance of the pools when available w/o loosing half done paket

11:19 <miha> smart thinking

11:19 <miha> you should write blog about it

11:19 <ennir> i will :)

11:20 <ennir> and i will poll for more comments then :)

16:23 <PovAddict> efc: Eric Korpela told me he's not aware of any donation matching being done

16:23 <PovAddict> in SETI

16:24 <PovAddict> on another topic, does anyone know if SETI@Home sends task aborts?

16:24 <efc> Moo, thanks

16:24 <efc> I've never known it to

16:24 <PovAddict> for example if a WU reaches deadline

16:25 <PovAddict> some projects do; it's a configuration setting

16:26 <efc> My WU in Feb hadn't been aborted

16:26 <efc> due in Feb I mean

16:26 <efc> Feb '09

16:27 <PovAddict> what version of the client do you have?

16:28 <efc> boinc 5 10 45, s@h 5.28

16:28 <PovAddict> I don't think that version supports server-side aborts :|

16:29 <PovAddict> so you may have got one and BOINC ignored the piece of unrecognized XML

16:29 <efc> Maybe so

17:00 <yoyo_RKN> what does this mean: -161 ERR_NOT_FOUND

17:00 <yoyo_RKN> of an boinc result?

17:21 * XioNYC shakes fist in wdsmia's rear-view window

17:21 <XioNYC> Get back here and crunch like an under-1M!

17:21 <XioNYC> (But it's useless - wdsmia is 99.76M credits beyond earshot, and there is no end in sight)

17:21 <XioNYC> THE END (and g'night)

17:21 *** XioNYC is now known as xionyc

17:30 <efc> wdsmia, where is your place in Wyoming?

17:32 *** |Erkan_Yilmaz| has quit IRC

17:36 * efc is looking for a ski destination

17:39 <wdsmia> for best skiing try Arapahoe Basin Co.

17:41 <efc> I should mention that picking up chicks is also a major decision factor.

17:41 <wdsmia> then thats the place

17:41 * efc smells of cheap whiskey as he boards the plane

17:42 <wdsmia> you will fit right in on the keystone side

17:43 <efc> Always wanted to take somebody for shacku, i mean, ski trip, looks like I'll have to go alone though.

17:44 <wdsmia> A-basin is more extrem skiing, but keystone right next to it has a 3 mile green

17:45 <efc> I've only been once before. Did fine, on the easy/intermediate slopes. Had a near-death experience on advanced.

17:45 <wdsmia> lol

17:46 <wdsmia> then go for keystone

17:46 <efc> I would get going too fast for comfort and ditch. Every few feet.. with ski brats whizzing by all around

17:47 <efc> Thanks for the recommendation, will check that out
