00:01 <GoSox> MTughan: that icon that you were on the fence about, the one i said shoudl be there, but should be something better than the generic spinny i used..... there should be two icons that animate to show active work.... one for CPU work units and one for GPU work units :-D
00:01 <GoSox> the more user feedback the better
00:01 <MTughan> I'd use a static icon for that.
00:01 <MTughan> Or a different background colour in the list.
00:01 <GoSox> something subtle-ly animated would look really good
00:02 <MTughan> Animation is fine, but too much is bad.
00:02 <MTughan> I'm reminded of the fully animated GeoCities and MySpace pages.
00:02 <GoSox> and maybe like green for CPU work, blue for GPU work, and faded grey would be work not in progress
00:02 <GoSox> MTughan: this would be the ONLY thing animated on the whole home screen??

00:35 <GoSox> aaaanyyyyyybooooooodyyyyyyyyy
00:40 <zombie67> pov, why?
00:43 <GoSox> so the only project that appears to be sending me CUDA work units is Collatz... and every CUDA unit it sends gets a Computation error right off the bat and stops computing
00:56 <GoSox> FUCK this shit is so buggy

11:52 <Jackpoz> 5k credits in 2 hours :P
12:22 <Tank_Master> slow GPU?
12:32 <Jackpoz> slow?

12:33 <Jackpoz> Processing power (double precision): 418 GigaFLOPS
12:33 <PovAddict> credits have totally lost meaning with GPUs
12:33 <PovAddict> a measure of how much faster than the CPU app it is
12:34 <Tank_Master> the 5850 should be getting a lot mroe than 2k an hr
12:34 <PovAddict> if their previous CPU app was an unoptimized piece of crap, the GPU app gives more credits
12:34 <Jackpoz> well, it didn't sound fair to say "5k in 5 minutes" since i didn't check when i opened boinc
12:35 <Jackpoz> it may be less than 2hr, not a big deal
12:35 <Jackpoz> still a lot faster than the cpu
12:35 <Tank_Master> it gets about 125k a day in collatz, more in dnetc and mw
12:35 <Jackpoz> it took 2 days to finish a WU with the cpu

15:30 <Keba> hi there
15:33 <Keba> im searching for a boinc project which needs much more cpu power than ram usage.... i want to run some cool boinc project on my server (256 to 1024 mib ram, i7 cpu ...) - any nice projects for this purpose?
15:33 <PovAddict> 1GB is a lot
15:34 <Keba> for boinc only, right... but not for a webserver which some apps
15:34 <Saenger> a lot? depends on the project ;)
15:34 <yoyo[RKN]> ;)
15:34 <PovAddict> Keba: then it's irrelevant how much RAM the machine has
15:34 <PovAddict> tell us how much max RAM you want BOINC to use
15:34 <Saenger> thre's a new project, WUProp@Home, where you can look just that up
15:35 <PovAddict> Saenger: last time I tried, it gave quite useless info
15:35 <Romulus> Title: Results (at 188.8.131.52)
15:35 <PovAddict> they have separate "CPU" entries for every possible clock speed
15:35 <Keba> PovAddict: lets say no more than 100 mib? less wouldb e better
15:38 <Keba> well, mabye i should ask another question: i am searching for a CPU intensive and non RAM intensive math/science project, which is as free and liber (would be best, if they shared their results for free) as possible... should be something sensefull (so not seti)... any ideas?
15:38 <Keba> PovAddict: oh, cool thanks :)
15:42 <Saenger> and cpu-intensive are nearly all of them, only freehal, wuprop, dynaping are cpr-non-intensive
15:42 <Saenger> and some are gpu-projects
15:43 <PovAddict> freehal is a CPU-intensive scam, as I said many times
15:43 <PovAddict> last time I checked (many months ago), it's a 10-second CPU-intensive app filled with sleep()s to make it use 0.1% CPU
15:45 <PovAddict> "Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity", so I assume the admin has no clue what he's doing; but if it *was* malice, it would be a trick to give way more credits per CPU second than normal
15:48 *** synapt has quit IRC
15:50 <Keba> does the lhc project need much ram?
15:51 <MTughan> LHC project rarely has any work, last I checked.
15:51 <Keba> hm, ok
15:52 <Keba> well, the milkyway project sounds nice
15:54 <Saenger> it's mainly gpu
15:54 <Saenger> they so much work via gpu, it looks like wasting cpu if you use them
15:54 <PovAddict> why don't they take the CPU app down then?
15:56 <Keba> hm, i dont have a gpu :P
15:57 <PovAddict> Keba: then you'll only get CPU tasks
15:58 <Keba> right, but, as Saenger said, its wasting cpu power then, if its coded for gpu
15:58 <PovAddict> they have a separate GPU app that happens to be faster
15:58 <Keba> is there any reason against climateprediction?
15:58 <PovAddict> if you think that means using the CPU app is a waste, continue searching for projects
15:58 <Saenger> it's working so good on gpu, cpu is veeeeryyyy sssslloooooowwwwwww in comparsion
15:59 <PovAddict> Keba: I don't know what their RAM reqs are nowadays
15:59 <Keba> PovAddict: 77mib using "HadCM3 Coupled Model Experiment Optimised File I/O" (by Saengerâ€™s link above)
16:00 <Saenger> cpdn don't need that much ram, but up to 1GB of disc space per WU
16:01 <Saenger> and they don't have any hadcm at the moment afaik
16:01 <Saenger> only hadsm
16:01 <Keba> hm, and there is no way to use it with a 64 bit linux server...
16:01 <PovAddict> why not?
16:02 <Saenger> i'm using it on my 64bit linux computer
16:02 <Saenger> ok, no server, but it's tunning ectremely good with hadsm
16:02 <Keba> hm, then Saengerâ€™s links above is not true
16:02 <Saenger> and i shopuld look before hitting the return button ;)
16:03 <Saenger> why?
16:03 <Saenger> cpdn has only 32bit apps, but they run fine in 64-lin
16:04 <Keba> ah, ok :)
16:04 <Saenger> there's only a small problem possible with the 32bit libraries
16:05 <Keba> hm?
16:05 <Saenger> i don't know if cpdn is affected, but a package called ia32 has to be installed for a whole bunch of 32bit lion applications
16:05 <PovAddict> for any 32bit app, unless it's statically linked
16:06 <Saenger> i have installed it on my computer as one of the first things, so I can't really say whether cpdn needs them as well
16:06 <Saenger> should not be that much of a problem on the other hand
16:07 <Keba> well, should be ok for now :)
16:09 <Keba> the debian package is broken. boinc-client needs schedtool to run, but schedtool is not installed automatically
16:12 <Keba> PovAddict: ah ok ;)
16:13 <PovAddict> afaik there's nobody at all maintaining the boinc package nowadays
16:18 *** Keba has quit IRC
16:19 *** KEBA has joined #boinc
16:24 <PovAddict> congratulations, you just got the boinc daemon to scatter its internal state all over your home directory
16:25 <PovAddict> lots of people do that wrong so clearly it's the package's fault
16:25 <PovAddict> 'boinc' is already running
16:25 <PovAddict> it's started by the init.d script
16:25 <PovAddict> you shouldn't run the client by hand, and if you do, it should be in a separate directory, definitely not in $HOME
16:27 <KEBA> damnit
16:27 <KEBA> youre right
16:27 <KEBA> so, i use boinccmd to play around with boinc?
16:28 <PovAddict> yes, or boincmgr if you have X
16:29 <KEBA> X is wate of rampower ;)

18:22 <Tank_Master> lol
18:22 <wdsmia> Boo Hiss
18:23 <CoderForLife> otherwise, it's espaningles
18:23 <CoderForLife> no takers on my DR site question?
18:24 <wdsmia> back-up tape is still cheaper
18:25 <CoderForLife> they're using VMware ESX
18:25 <CoderForLife> as are we to virtualize over 200 servers

18:26 * wdsmia slaps GaelicGrime around with a large Carp
18:26 <GaelicGrime> :)
18:26 <CoderForLife> OK - I'll assume no takers - they have the DR site on the 26th floor of a building in the downtown area
18:27 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: the real WTF is that buildings of that height exist at all in Santiago
18:27 <CoderForLife> not the first place I'd recommend
18:28 <CoderForLife> saw a lot of surface damage where building standing next to each other banged together
18:28 <CoderForLife> buildings...
18:29 <PovAddict> my dad spoke to someone at Sun-Oracle who had like 6 family members sleeping at his house, because their homes weren't in a state to live in after the earthquake
18:29 <CoderForLife> sure - down near Concepcion?
18:30 <CoderForLife> what is the Argentine town of Mendoza like PovAddict?
18:30 <PovAddict> full of wine
18:30 <CoderForLife> that's a good start
18:31 <PovAddict> lol
18:31 <PovAddict> I've been there
18:31 <CoderForLife> is it someplace more technically advanced, that we could throw a wire over the Andes and host a backup site there?
18:32 <PovAddict> if this means anything... http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archivo:Mendoza_argentina_by_longhorndave.jpg
18:33 <PovAddict> bbl bread-baking machine finished :)
18:33 <CoderForLife> looks nice
18:35 <CoderForLife> plenty of green
18:39 <PovAddict> mmm fresh-baked and warm bread
18:39 <CoderForLife> excellent
18:42 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: it seems there are a few web hosting companies in Mendoza
18:43 <PovAddict> so there must be someone who does server colocation too
18:45 <CoderForLife> good - I'll start asking about that tomorrow
18:54 <CoderForLife> I imagine cost for a communications link across the Andes may be a bit pricey
18:58 <PovAddict> my dad got a direct link to Chile for video chat
18:59 <PovAddict> saved quite a bit on travel costs (less flight-requiring face-to-face meetings)
19:00 <CoderForLife> yes - we can do that too - board room to board roow
19:00 <CoderForLife> er room
19:00 <PovAddict> IIRC the provider even gave them QoS at no extra cost because of the infrequent traffic
19:01 <CoderForLife> but it helps sometimes to go and see how the world looks out of the other guy's window
19:01 <PovAddict> getting priority traffic costs more if you're going to be transferring data 24/7
19:01 <CoderForLife> this would be a daily replication from Santiago to Mendoza, and also potentially to Cincinnati
19:01 <PovAddict> but video chat is a few hours per week, so...
19:02 <CoderForLife> right
19:08 <synapt> Doesn't BOINC support some trigger to run multiple instances/clients?
19:08 <PovAddict> huh?
19:11 <PovAddict> to run multiple science apps / workunits? it already does that based on how many CPU cores you have
19:11 *** desti has quit IRC
19:13 <synapt> Well no, basically someone I was just talking to apparently stretches BOINC across 10 actual VM instances, to fully utilize it, since it doesn't seem to 'standalone', I thought there was a way though you could actually run BOINC multiple times for such a thing, through a command line arg
19:13 <PovAddict> there is no point in running multiple BOINC clients on the same physical machine
19:15 <PovAddict> are you sure he actually has problems running one alone? I heard of people who think running BOINC in N virtual machines will process N times faster
19:15 <PovAddict> as if a VM was like a CPU core, getting more computation power out of nowhere
19:36 <synapt> PovAddict: So he says, he says it 'works faster' and gets him more credit technically as well, theoretically though I would have thought it'd be slower considering VM Overheads
19:36 <PovAddict> maybe he has BOINC set to use 10% CPU, so starting 10 instances compensates for that :P
19:49 <CoderForLife> heh
19:50 <PovAddict> synapt: even if there is a way to run multiple clients, I'll refuse to tell you on the grounds that it's a workaround for a different problem
19:51 <PovAddict> reminds me of someone who said BOINC should have a way to make it get 32-bit apps even on 64-bit machines, because the 64-bit SETI app was crashing for him
19:51 <PovAddict> that's a workaround; the 64-bit SETI app shouldn't crash in the first place
19:51 <synapt> *shrug* I was mostly just curious, if there is one I'm sure I could find it out on my own
19:52 <PovAddict> I wonder what's the RAM waste of having 10 VMs just for BOINC :P
19:53 <CoderForLife> well - time for some heads-down Coding - gn all
19:55 <synapt> POV: He has 12 gigs total, apparently 1 gig per VM
19:56 <PovAddict> x_x
19:59 <Tank_Master> you guys talkin about me?
19:59 <Tank_Master> i only use 850mb per vm
