16:56 <xcamel> still looks like some ugly weather headed your way..
16:58 <efc> My ZPM is depleted, but I've got some mostly-charged AA NiMHs.
17:03 <efc> it wasn't supposed to start up till 8 PM or so, but its already rained most of the day.
17:09 <xcamel> listening to the news, sounds like one town already got whacked..
17:09 <efc> in Alabama
17:09 <xcamel> guess so..
17:09 <efc> "An F4 tornado went through a trailor park and did $100,000 worth of improvements"
17:10 <efc> j/k :)
17:11 <PovAddict> lol
17:11 <PovAddict> wouldn't surprise me
17:11 <PovAddict> efc: sounds like an article title from The Onion
17:12 <efc> they do seem to preferentially attack trailor parks
17:12 <PovAddict> isn't that a good thing?
17:13 <efc> its pretty bad for the trailors and people inside
17:13 <PovAddict> well no sh**
17:14 <efc> An F1 will toss them around pretty good.. well built house, it might just pull the shingles off
17:14 <PovAddict> sounds like natural selection to me :)
17:14 <efc> Those are my people :P
17:14 * efc hates tornados
17:15 <PovAddict> are you in a well-built house or a trailer? :)
17:15 <efc> house with a basement, and I'm in it
17:16 <efc> i think we have storm clips on this house
17:16 <efc> roof shouldn't go without a fight
17:19 <xcamel> one would hope...
17:47 <xcamel> boinc on facebook... blah..
17:49 <PovAddict> Carl trying to make his own wheel again... blah..
17:51 <efc> Whats that xcamel? communications receiver?
17:52 <efc> I have a ham license but no serious radio yet
17:52 <efc> kj4hff
17:53 <PovAddict> hmm this is so wrong
17:53 <PovAddict> I just reinstalled the OS on my old PowerBook
17:53 <PovAddict> and looked at upgrades
17:53 <PovAddict> there was a major OS update (10.4.11), which I installed
17:54 <PovAddict> it's the equivalent of a Windows service pack, I guess
17:54 <PovAddict> after installing that, looking at the list of updates, iTunes is the biggest by far
17:54 <PovAddict> 97MB worth of music player
17:54 <efc> Sheesh
17:55 <PovAddict> not like the rest of the file sizes make any sense
17:55 <PovAddict> X11 for Mac, Update 2006... 51MB

18:12 <efc> significant interference with the WX radio starting..
18:14 <efc> nope, just crappy radio.

19:45 <Rookie_69> The boat is about 95% ready... which is irrelevant because she goes in monday regardless.
19:52 <Rookie_69> Most of the fairing I applied last year peeled off, so we decided to not apply any this year. The boat might favour a port tack now though.
19:55 <Rookie_69> Doesn't matter cause I'm really not that good of a sailor...
19:57 <Rookie_69> I think I've finally learned Tom how to cruise instead of how to race...
19:58 <PovAddict> learned or teached?
19:58 <Rookie_69> Learned.l
19:58 <Rookie_69> Hmm...
19:58 <Rookie_69> Where did that 1 come from?
19:59 <PovAddict> it's an l, not a 1
19:59 <Rookie_69> ?extra ignored
20:03 * Rookie_69 barely remembers some Basic stuff from many years ago...
20:04 * Rookie_69 better remembers putting a steak in the frying pan tonight.
20:05 <Rookie_69> ... onions are browning too...

20:18 <efc> xcamel: saw a fun toy at an ag show, it was sort of like a Gator vehicle, but a Bobcat; had 4 seats, and a power dump bed.
20:21 <Rookie_69> Bobcat has their name on about 40 or 50 different toys... Make and model could be a bonus.
20:22 <efc> dunno the model, but i hope they don't have many 4 seat, light duty ORV dump beds
20:22 <Rookie_69> Iirc, the brand belongs to Ingersoll Rand...
20:25 <efc> Why buy a $15,000 pickup truck when you can by a $25,000 overgrown go-kart?
20:26 <Rookie_69> A fish.
20:26 <efc> We have a Gator.. comes in handy.
20:26 <efc> Worth the $5000 or whatever it cost.. I dunno
20:27 <efc> Here we go.
20:27 <efc> How big can the market be for that..
20:30 <efc> ~$15,000.

23:37 <GoSox> hi
23:37 <GoSox> i'm trying to get my GPU working
23:37 <GoSox> but... i don't know how to even tell if BOINC is using it or not
23:37 <MTughan> (OS X system)
23:37 <GoSox> hah
23:37 <GoSox> stalking me
23:38 <PovAddict> first few lines in the "Messages" tab should say it found a video card *or* that it found none
23:38 <MTughan> GoSox: No, I'm always in this channel. Which is why I know about it.
23:38 <GoSox> i just quite and reoppened boinc
23:38 <GoSox> no mention of GPUs one way or the other
23:38 <PovAddict> GoSox: what version?
23:39 <GoSox> im on 6.6.36
23:40 <GoSox> my mac has a 9400m
23:40 <GoSox> right now it's only attatched to SETI
23:42 <GoSox> I believe i have the "Developer Drivers for MacOS" installed from this page, is that the right thing? That page isn't very clear to me
23:43 <MTughan> GoSox: To use CUDA on OS X, you need 6.10.28 or later.
23:43 <GoSox> MTughan: 6.6.36 is the newest isn't it?
23:43 <MTughan> 6.10.44 is newest.
23:43 <MTughan> Sorry, .43 for OS X.
23:44 <GoSox> well ain't that a bitch
23:44 <GoSox> i swear i had the newest
23:44 <PovAddict> and .45 being tested for Windows
23:44 <GoSox> so what popular projects besides SETI can use the GPU on a mac?
23:45 <MTughan> Einstein and Collatz at least. Not sure what else.
23:45 <GoSox> these projects need CPU too right?
23:45 <GoSox> meaning
23:45 <GoSox> i can't set my CPU use to bare minimum
23:45 <GoSox> and still compute units?
23:46 <PovAddict> you can set it to only get GPU tasks
23:47 <GoSox> MTughan: i just installed the new version of BOINC, now i have to log into every user on this mac and delete it from startup items. PLEASE fix this!
23:47 <PovAddict> and then it will only use the necessary CPU to talk to the GPU, load and save data files, maybe some preprocessing that can't be done on the GPU
23:47 <GoSox> hmmm I still see "no usable GPUs found"
23:47 <PovAddict> GoSox: at least now you see that :)
23:47 <GoSox> yay
23:47 <GoSox> sorta
23:48 <GoSox> but isn't 9400m a usable gpu
23:48 <GoSox> ?
23:48 <PovAddict> I have an 8600GT and it's usable
23:49 *** Rookie_69 has quit IRC
23:50 <PovAddict> hmm... last night I sent my last IRC message at 1:48am, the night before at 3:53am... now it's 0:50... I should go so I continue slowly moving my sleep cycle into sanity
23:51 <PovAddict> (last IRC message doesn't necessarily mean I went to sleep immediately after that :P)
23:51 <GoSox> my sleep cycle doesn't move backwards, only forwards
23:51 <GoSox> no matter what i do
23:51 <GoSox> so i don't try
23:51 <GoSox> i just live
23:52 <MTughan> GoSox: You apparently need an updated CUDA driver too.
23:53 <GoSox> how can i tell what driver i already have?
23:53 <PovAddict> MTughan: are you using CUDA on BOINC now?
23:53 <MTughan> PovAddict: No. I don't run BOINC.
23:53 <PovAddict> ah k
23:53 <PovAddict> did you ever try?
23:54 <MTughan> Yes, but not for long.
23:54 <GoSox> it is a horrible app, that's really not very rewarding at all to use
23:54 <GoSox> not like it should be
23:55 <GoSox> (segway into my mockup) :-D
23:55 <GoSox> ok i think it sees my GPU now!
23:55 <GoSox> ya
23:55 <GoSox> y
23:55 <GoSox> how can i tell it "GPU work only"?
23:56 <GoSox> apparently there are no GPU SETI tasks for OS X
