20:18 <jasong> Hey, if you guys could have an avatar that was lifelike and literally talked, though possibly with a different voice and/or accent, what kind of avatar would it be.  I'd want Michael J. Fox from the Back to the Future movies

20:18 <jasong> So, what I'm saying is you'd talk into the computer and your mannerisms and inflection would be copied onto the avatar

20:19 <jasong> The fun thing is this is more about computing power than bandwidth, since words and inflection could equate to literally sub-kilobyte speeds since it's being altered

20:20 <jasong> when it gets to it's destination

20:20 <jasong> And actually, it could revolutionize cell phone pricing if the person on the other end had the "fingerprints" to your actual voice

20:21 <jasong> &monologue

20:21 <Romulus> jasong: Your current monologue is at least 6 lines long.

20:25 <PovAddict> you and your weird ideas

20:26 *** zerok has joined #boinc

20:27 <zerok> if a task has an estimated time to completion of 30 days, is it worth it? or it'll take so long that it'll hit the deadline before it even completes?

20:31 <PovAddict> depends on what the deadline is...

20:31 <zerok> climateprediction

20:31 <PovAddict> and on how long your comouter is running

20:32 <PovAddict> but obviously, if it was never 'worth it', the project wouldn't have ever got any work done :P

20:32 <PovAddict> obviously some people do make it in time for the deadline

20:33 <zerok> I once attached to monte carlo, but after I saw a task having an estimated completion time of thousands of hours and I gave up

20:33 <PovAddict> the ETA shouldnt scare you

20:34 <PovAddict> what matters is the relation between estimated completion time and deadline

20:34 <PovAddict> projects with long tasks usually have appropriately long deadlines :)

20:35 <zerok> oh, didn't notice it before

20:35 <zerok> report deadline is 1 year

20:35 <PovAddict> :)

20:35 <zerok> does it download tasks according to cpu?

20:36 <PovAddict> what do you mean?

20:36 <zerok> faster cpu, more complex tasks. slower cpu, less complex tasks?

20:37 *** gamerchick02 has quit IRC

20:37 *** MacG has quit IRC

20:38 <PovAddict> the server may refuse to give you tasks (or some kind of tasks) if it thinks you won't finish in time, based on deadline, task length (adjusted for your CPU speed), resource share to that project, and how much of the day the computer is running

20:39 <PovAddict> or if task needs more RAM than you have :)

20:39 *** zerok has quit IRC

20:43 <jasong> POV, they're only weird until someone does something awesome, like discover electricity, or makes the first transistor radio :p  Besides, which is more valuable, more hard drive space or a compression method that means the space isn't needed?

20:45 <jasong> I mean, BluRay is ass when you know the history behind DVDs, that's just one example

21:07 <jasong> did you guys read that article in Wired(I think that's the magazine, not sure, maybe CPU) about sparse arrays?

21:08 <jasong> They basically took 1/10th of the data normally associated with a brain scan and generated a picture that was almost exactly like the picture they would have gotten with a full scan

21:09 <jasong> the example in the article used a picture of Obama, so they probably should've simply deleted the picture, lol, but the example explained it pretty well, either way

23:15 * wdsmia pushes Tank_Master into a crevasse

23:15 * Tank_Master slaps wdsmia around with 32bit Vista Starter Edition

23:16 <wdsmia> you need to find a new slap

23:23 <jasong> Quick question, what is Xorg, and is it a bad idea to kill it to get my core back?  Whatever it's doing, I'm guessing it doesn't actually need half a core to do it

23:23 <Tank_Master> never heard of it

23:24 <jasong> yeah, but aren't you a Windows loser?

23:24 <jasong> I mean user

23:25 <jasong> Windows, it's being kept afloat by ignorance gaming companies

23:25 <jasong> oops, and game companies

23:27 <Tank_Master> and by companies who dont want to spend more on internal support for linux

23:35 <jasong> well, if they'd make more games for Linux, than people wouldn't have to spend quite as much on gaming machines and put it towards more games

23:35 <jasong> btw, I should've put a wink after windows loser, sorry
