15:20 <Caterpillar> why a lot of times in boinc is active by default the option "work also in battery"? This is very bad with noob users with laptops that install boinc for the first time

15:21 <PovAddict> a lot of times?

15:21 <PovAddict> you mean it seems random?

15:27 <Caterpillar> no I mean that yesterday I installed 3 times boinc on 3 different computers and the option was active

15:27 <PovAddict> did you just create the account on the project?

15:28 <Caterpillar> I had an account. I installed boinc, I activated the account and then I went into the boinc preferences

15:28 <Caterpillar> and in the boinc preferences the option work also in batteries was active

15:28 <PovAddict> maybe because you set it that way in the project website ages ago

15:29 <Caterpillar> the project is world community grid and you cannot access to this option from the WCG page

15:31 *** XioNYC has joined #boinc

15:36 <PovAddict> Caterpillar: wow, you undusted a mess

15:36 <PovAddict> Caterpillar: the default for that preference is *different* in the server and the client code

15:36 <Caterpillar> ??

15:36 <PovAddict> I just sent a message to boinc_dev

15:36 <Caterpillar> :)

15:36 <PovAddict> thanks for pointing that out

15:36 <Caterpillar> you're welcome

15:37 <Caterpillar> I'm very active in promoting boinc and I did not like this thing so I reported it in this official channel :)

15:38 <PovAddict> well this isn't quite "official"

15:38 <Caterpillar> :)

15:39 <Caterpillar> so developers found out that this is a little bug?

15:40 <PovAddict> I found the inconsistency in the code and reported it to the mailing list

15:40 <Caterpillar> perfect

15:42 <Caterpillar> you know, if someone very noob has the feeling that the battery will discharg faster with boinc, he will associate boinc to hazardous software

15:42 <PovAddict> one possible problem is the wording on both sides; client uses run_on_batteries and server uses suspend_while_on_batteries

16:07 <xcamel> so... is 'alpha' officially dead now?

16:08 <PovAddict> why do you think so?

16:08 <xcamel> flooding getting to you?

16:09 <PovAddict> not really

16:09 <PovAddict> it's raining a lot and we have a little roof leak

16:10 <xcamel> 70mm/hr.. wow..

16:10 <PovAddict> yup...

16:10 <PovAddict> on monday it was 90mm in *two* hours

16:10 <PovAddict> or three

16:10 <xcamel> I though I saw something on beta about it..

16:13 <xcamel> totally cool video... wait for the end and look closely...

16:16 <MapMan> eh

16:16 <MapMan> im having some problems with boinc

16:16 <MapMan> i do some work for seti and I experience a performance drop

16:16 <MapMan> on both gpu and cpu

16:17 <MapMan> about a month ago it took me few minutes to compute WU with gpu and a little longer with cpu

16:17 <PovAddict> don't let it run on GPU while you're using the computer

16:17 <MapMan> now its almost 16 hours for cpu and 25 minutes for gpu

16:17 <PovAddict> that's not necessarily a performance drop

16:18 <MapMan> well, I know, the WU couldve change

16:18 <MapMan> but, I had some old WU that I remember were solved as quickly as I described

16:18 <MapMan> about month later I launch boinc

16:18 <MapMan> and the WUs havnt expired yet

16:18 <MapMan> but it runs slower

16:20 <MapMan> gpu works faster and faster over time

16:20 <MapMan> hmm

16:21 <MapMan> weird, a new WU for gpu works slower again

16:28 <MapMan> any ideas what I could do make sure im using my hardware to its fullest?
