01:56 <TheGasGiant> i've heard of a roomba, but not the lighthouse version....

01:56 <efc> virtual wall

01:56 <efc> keeps it out of a room

01:56 <TheGasGiant> i c

01:57 <efc> anyway the battery leaked and I had to clean it up and resolder some wires

01:57 <efc> I hate soldering

02:26 <zombie67> heh

02:26 <zombie67> I was just wondering if he had any time to complie me a 32bit WEP app

02:26 <zombie67> NO PRESSURE

02:27 <zombie67> I would be happy even f it never happened

02:27 <zombie67> but a BIT more happy if it did

02:27 <zombie67> ;)

02:29 <PovAddict> he bought some new disks and he's making a RAID of them

02:34 <zombie67> bah

02:34 <zombie67> I have had nothing but sadness from RAID

02:35 <zombie67> an awesome backup scheme is better, IMO

16:08 <mda_> Why is it, that for some projects, when I select Join, and supply the correct password, it tells me the password is wrong?  I have seen this over and over again, and seems to be project specific....

16:08 <PovAddict> did you create an account on those projects already?

16:09 <mda_> I thought I only needed a BOINC account?

16:09 <PovAddict> there is no such thing as a "BOINC account"

16:09 <PovAddict> each project is independent, runs its own servers, has its own user database

16:09 <mda_> ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh...............hrmmm...........i thought i didn't have to do that for some projects....oh well....i'll try what u say

16:10 <mda_> BTW, just what kind of POV addict are you?

16:10 <PovAddict> I'm not, but too late to change my nickname, too many people know me by this :P

16:10 <xcamel> 'lo

16:10 <PovAddict> but it was

16:10 <Romulus> Title: POV-Ray - The Persistence of Vision Raytracer (at

16:10 <mda_> haha

16:10 <mda_> that's what i thought

16:11 <mda_> but i'm sure you're aware of the other meaning

16:11 <PovAddict> yeah, one reason why I'd like to change the nickname <.<

16:11 * mda_ mounts webcam on head with duct tape...

16:12 <PovAddict> <.<

16:12 <mda_> lol

16:13 <mda_> the joke is really on me......(software engineer looking for job......and only company that wants to interview me does adult content -- why they did NOT put in their ad!!)

16:13 * mda_ is not that desperate yet...

16:15 <kromar5959> how can i change the team?

16:16 <mda_> PovAddict: LOL, thx for advice. ttyl

16:16 *** mda_ has left #boinc

16:17 <PovAddict> kromar5959: find the team you want to join, it should have a "join team" link

16:18 <kromar5959> PovAddict: is that in the boinc software? o_O if so where do i search for a team?

16:18 <PovAddict> go to the project website, there should be a 'find team' link somewhere in the front page

16:18 <PovAddict> eg. Einstein@Home:

16:18 <Romulus> Title: Find a team (at

16:20 <kromar5959> PovAddict: found the team, but there is no "join team" ...

16:20 <PovAddict> hm

16:21 <PovAddict> damn, this sucks :P

16:21 <PovAddict> go to "Your account" first, and login

16:21 <kromar5959> and where would that be?

16:22 <kromar5959> on te same page?

16:22 <PovAddict> should be linked from the project main page

16:25 <kromar5959> PovAddict: thanks for the help:D

16:56 <TheGasGiant> that looks nice Doug

16:57 <wdsmia> its hot when your throwing around the mower

16:57 <TheGasGiant> top off and working up a sweet

16:58 <efc> Reminds me, I should check on how the Roomba is doing.

16:58 <TheGasGiant> shame the roomba doesn't work on carpet and where there's lots of kids toys on the floor

16:59 *** up365 has joined #boinc

16:59 <PovAddict> you need a bigger robot to pick up the toys

17:00 <TheGasGiant> and to dust, vacuum....

17:00 <TheGasGiant> ahh...isn't that called a wife  :p

17:00 * Tank_Master agrees

17:00 <PovAddict> heh

17:00 <PovAddict> "you don't buy a dishwasher, you marry one"

17:01 <TheGasGiant> hehehe

17:01 <Tank_Master> yeah, cept that kind nags a lot

17:01 * PovAddict wonders if Romulus supports the "[off]" prefix to keep something off the log

17:01 <Tank_Master> and theres no refunds or returns

17:02 <PovAddict> [off] test

17:02 <PovAddict> I'll check in an hour (when webpage updates) and see if that line was logged :)

17:03 <TheGasGiant> lol...cheaper to stay single, invent the robot and visit the hookers when you want something....  :p

17:15 <efc> It did a good job on the porch leaves.

17:17 <TheGasGiant> have you told it it is doing a good job?

17:17 <efc> I use reverse pychopathy

17:17 *** elnex has quit IRC

17:20 <Tank_Master> so you told it to suck instead of blow?

17:21 <efc> You've been a very bad Roomba! Wack!

17:24 *** quail has quit IRC

17:27 * efc looks at current cpus and is very confused

17:31 <TheGasGiant> lol...all done to get you to buy what you think is a decent cpu,but is really a cut down version and you end up paying too much for it.

17:35 <efc> usually a sort by price is a sort by speed, but not always

17:39 <efc> I guess I don't really need 4/6 cores. Games probably don't use them much and s@h does much better on a vid card.

17:41 <TheGasGiant> aqua does well on multi-cores...good credit

17:41 <PovAddict> you and your credit

17:41 <PovAddict> :P

17:42 <TheGasGiant> once you have a gpu crunching, you can put your cpu to good use on worthwhile non-gpu projects

17:43 <TheGasGiant> if they have work

17:44 <TheGasGiant> woohoo...I'm ahead of wdsmia!

17:45 <TheGasGiant> about time I got ahead of him in at least one project..  :p

17:45 <PovAddict> that's because wdsmia seems to have quit aqua :P

17:45 <TheGasGiant> whatever works!

17:45 <TheGasGiant> shhh..don't tell him

17:45 <PovAddict> let's see collatz

17:48 <PovAddict> you're #2 in milkyway too, but you'll take years to beat wdsmia

17:48 <TheGasGiant> lol

17:49 <PovAddict> in AQUA you're #14 of Australia, and it won't take you long to go up

17:50 <efc> I should start having an atom be my router instead of the power hog P4, and it can crunch some on the side

17:50 <TheGasGiant> i always like a bit on the side

18:18 <PovAddict> I grabbed the .asx and gave it to VLC

18:18 <CoderForLife> Ah - Pelosi says it's Bush's fault

18:19 <TheGasGiant> it depends on who allowed drilling without remote operated shut down valves at the well head

18:20 <CoderForLife> I think it was Elvis

18:20 <PovAddict> I blame misfit

18:20 <TheGasGiant> i hear they're worth about $500k

18:20 <TheGasGiant> lol

18:20 <CoderForLife> how much was the insurance premium with and without the valve?

18:21 <TheGasGiant> oh god...does this mean that my insurance premium is going up again!

18:21 <TheGasGiant> it was negligence!  Don't pay them!

18:22 <CoderForLife> well - it may have been a business decision

18:22 <CoderForLife> $500,000 for the value - $10,00 per year in additional premium...  You Make The Call

18:23 <TheGasGiant> or $2 billion for the clean up and payouts...

18:27 <CoderForLife> no change in Chile PovAddict

18:28 <CoderForLife> nobody wants to talk about Mendoza

18:28 <TheGasGiant> you need to turn it off for an hour or 2 a day to help avoid that CFL

18:29 <CoderForLife> you need to keep it at the proper pressure - it's got a leak in the system somewhere

18:29 * TheGasGiant makes note that grabbing the .asx file and opening in VLC is a good solution

18:30 <CoderForLife> when it goes too low, the first sign is the condensor unit outside doesn't sound like it's doing any work, then all the supply lines turn white or clear with ice, then the A-frame in the air duct freezes solid

18:30 <CoderForLife> all that happened yesterday while I was at work

18:30 <TheGasGiant> bugger

18:31 <CoderForLife> I came home and the A/C was running, but no air moving through the ducts

18:31 <CoderForLife> because of the A-shaped ice cube

18:31 <CoderForLife> got a call in for help through my home warranty, but no call back yet

18:32 <TheGasGiant> have you turned it back on yet?

18:32 <CoderForLife> no

18:32 <TheGasGiant> has the ice melted?

18:32 <CoderForLife> very likely

18:33 <TheGasGiant> stop sweating and turn it back on!

18:33 <CoderForLife> also, I have nearly all the window screens out due to the house painting that was scheduled for this past week

18:33 <CoderForLife> OK, I'll give this gas problem a try, TGG

18:34 <TheGasGiant> you're contributing to global warming with all the insect spray as well!

18:34 <CoderForLife> brb

18:36 <TheGasGiant> Don, we left our AC on at w#$^ in summer overnight and the next morning nothing was happening, so we called in the ac man....he took one look said turn it off there's a big ice block.  Guess what...

18:39 <CoderForLife> it's back on now

18:39 <PovAddict> don't let the smoke out!

18:40 <CoderForLife> if it croaks, the home warranty company should buy me a new one

18:40 <TheGasGiant> excellent

18:42 <CoderForLife> speaking of Spanish, one of the interesting phrases I learned on my trip was I needed to order my water "sin gas"

18:43 <TheGasGiant> lol

18:43 <CoderForLife> I didn't know you could get such water

18:43 <PovAddict> lol

18:43 <CoderForLife> sorta like laughing gas, but...

18:44 <PovAddict> I can't stand carbonated water unless it has some flavor too (ie. 7up)

18:45 <CoderForLife> We thought maybe a lot of their accounting was done in Excel, and we were suspect about their correctness.  It was confirmed by our host, who insisted on calling them "spreadshits".

18:45 <wdsmia> asks CoderForLife to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

18:45 <TheGasGiant> lol

18:46 <CoderForLife> I'm doing the best I can with Spanglish, wdsmia

18:46 <wdsmia> not good enought :P

18:46 <CoderForLife> heh

18:46 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: don't nitpick on pronunciation :P

18:46 * wdsmia throws CoderForLife back into the crevasse

18:47 <CoderForLife> I though he was speaking in Freud

18:47 * PovAddict stumbled first time he said "Python" in real life, I had never needed to say it, either for the language or the snake

18:47 <TheGasGiant> this spreadsh!t is the one we show you...see all good.  and this spreadsh!t is the one where we syphon money to my mothers sisters friends brothers fathers bank account

18:48 <PovAddict> didn't expect first syllable was /paɪ/

18:48 <TheGasGiant> pisson

18:49 <CoderForLife> pie-thon

18:49 * TheGasGiant preemptively throws wdsmia into a crevasse

18:49 * wdsmia pushes TheGasGiant into a crevasse

18:50 * wdsmia dumps a box of deadly crevasse spiders on TheGasGiant's head

18:50 * CoderForLife picks up a crevasse, and throws it at wdsmia

18:50 * TheGasGiant laughs as he sees them fall on wdsmia's head

18:50 * TheGasGiant gags as crevasse spider lands in mouth

18:53 <CoderForLife> another language I've heard various pronunciation on is Delphi

18:53 <CoderForLife> In the US, we say del'-fy

18:53 * TheGasGiant waits to be enlightened

18:53 <CoderForLife> In the UK, they say del'-fee

18:53 <TheGasGiant> in Oz we say del'-fee

18:53 * TheGasGiant notes the US always gets it wrong

18:53 <CoderForLife> diff'rent strokes for diff'rent blokes

18:53 <CoderForLife> er folks

18:53 <CoderForLife> er pholks

18:53 <TheGasGiant> you may stroke it as much as you like there fella

18:53 <TheGasGiant> as long as it's not mine

18:53 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: what about languages that aren't inherently pronunceable?

18:53 <CoderForLife> um

18:53 <PovAddict> ce más más

18:53 <TheGasGiant> see my my

18:54 * CoderForLife sees some accented characters

18:55 <PovAddict> ce mas mas = cee plus plus

18:55 <CoderForLife> ah C++

18:55 <PovAddict> yup :)

18:55 <CoderForLife> how do you say C# ?

18:55 *** Zeeno has joined #boinc

18:55 <PovAddict> that's a good question

18:56 <CoderForLife> I heard a well-know industry analysis call it "see pound"

18:56 <CoderForLife> the audience fell off their chairs

18:57 *** Zeeno has quit IRC

18:57 <CoderForLife> do you know why it's C# ?

18:57 <TheGasGiant> because it's a messed up version of C++

18:57 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

18:57 <CoderForLife> very ass-tute =)

18:58 <TheGasGiant> :p

18:58 <CoderForLife> (C++)++

18:58 <PovAddict> there are two theories

18:58 <TheGasGiant> how many + can there be?

18:58 <PovAddict> - you can create a # symbol with four + symbols

18:58 <PovAddict> - in music, C# is one semitone above C

18:59 <CoderForLife> ah good Nic

18:59 <CoderForLife> there can be 42 pluses, Paul

18:59 <TheGasGiant> but why?

18:59 <Romulus> but why is it running more than 2, TheGasGiant

18:59 <CoderForLife> plus pluses, as the French might say

19:00 <TheGasGiant> exactly Rom

19:00 <PovAddict> you know, ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++C is valid code :)

19:00 * TheGasGiant wonders what messed up coder thought that would be a good idea

19:00 * CoderForLife polishes Rommies chrome dome, and puts 2 more worthless euros in his coin slot

19:01 * TheGasGiant stares hypnotically at the rising column of oil....

19:02 * CoderForLife notes errors in Outlook in accessing default RSS feeds from Microsoft in Outlook

19:02 * CoderForLife solves problem by deleting RSS feeds

19:03 * TheGasGiant thinks there's a better mail app out there

19:03 <CoderForLife> office temp now 85F

19:03 <TheGasGiant> not much of a drop

19:03 <CoderForLife> going to check on A/C - brb

19:15 <CoderForLife> 82F at the thermostat downstairs

19:16 <CoderForLife> the unit outside is expelling some hot air, but it doesn't sound like it's doing much w@$%

19:18 <CoderForLife> hypnotic oil stream

19:33 * wdsmia pulls a 12 oz Sirloin off the Barbie

19:33 * CoderForLife calls the HVAC guy referred to by the home warranty company

19:34 <CoderForLife> shocker - voice mail

19:34 <CoderForLife> they give this as their web site address

19:34 <Romulus> Title: Website Disabled (at

19:34 <CoderForLife> disabled, much like my A/C

19:38 <wdsmia> looks like you have 2 choices... wait till Tuesday of find a pay out the a** company that does holiday weekend service

19:40 * wdsmia goes to eat his sirloin in a nice cool house

19:40 <CoderForLife> I'll call the home warranty company if I get no contact from my call

19:41 <CoderForLife> I could cancel and resubmit the service request, and try my luck with their system also

19:41 <CoderForLife> or talk to the human

19:41 <CoderForLife> or play Russian Roulette

19:42 <CoderForLife> in the meantimw, I'm away to do a couple of things outside before darkness falls
