15:29 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

16:44 *** Tank_Master has quit IRC

17:01 *** mulka has joined #boinc

17:02 <mulka> I was wondering if there are any projects that you can get paid to run BOINC as a client

17:06 <PovAddict> if projects had that kind of money, they'd just buy their own computers to process

17:06 <PovAddict> or rent a cluster

17:06 <mulka> PovAddict: you think that would be cheaper for them?

17:07 <PovAddict> probably

17:07 <PovAddict> they'd only have to process things once since they know the machines are reliable

17:07 <PovAddict> not twice or thrice and compare results, like they have to do with BOINC

17:09 <PovAddict> anyway

17:09 <PovAddict> many projects ask for monetary donations from users so they can keep their servers running!

17:10 <mulka> PovAddict: ok, so pretty much all the projects using BOINC today don't have the money to pay for more compute resources

17:10 <PovAddict> I saw a project that intended to pay users

17:10 <PovAddict> acting as a proxy actually

17:10 <PovAddict> they'd pay users to run BOINC

17:10 <PovAddict> and charge companies that want CPU time

17:11 <PovAddict> a few months later, the project ended; no customers :P

17:11 <mulka> Gridfinity maybe?

17:11 <PovAddict> yea that

17:12 <PovAddict> if someone wanted lots of CPU time, they'd make their own BOINC project, not pay Gridfinity...

17:12 <mulka> and pay users directly you mean?

17:13 <PovAddict> maybe, or maybe not

17:13 <PovAddict> probably: not

17:13 <mulka> if its a commercial application, people might not be willing to donate

17:16 <PovAddict> got an example of a CPU-intensive commercial application a company may want to run on volunteer machines?

17:18 <PovAddict> heh, Amazon EC2 charges way less than Gridfinity was going to pay users :P

17:19 <PovAddict> ...for most configurations

17:20 <mulka> PovAddict: financial modeling maybe?

17:20 <TheGasGiant> oh, oh MW is back...

17:21 <mulka> there might be some commercial applications that are similar to the apps that are already running on BOINC

17:21 <mulka> like, protein folding

17:21 <PovAddict> would the input data and your application be something you want to distribute to the outside world?

17:21 <mulka> PovAddict: it probably depends on the application

17:21 <PovAddict> Pixar for sure wouldn't use volunteer computers to render their movies

17:22 <mulka> that's the million dollar question... are there any commercial applications willing to run on random people's computers

17:23 <PovAddict> exactly, and for a million dollars they'd buy their own computers instead of answering the question :D

17:23 <yoyo[RKN]> lol

17:25 <PovAddict> hey there's yoyo

17:25 <PovAddict> we're almost halfway through this year and he has 23% of the money needed to keep yoyo@home servers running in 2010

17:27 <yoyo[RKN]> for the rest I would need a different sponsor

17:27 <PovAddict> yoyo[RKN]: I need to borrow my dad's card and donate you some :P

17:28 * PovAddict has money but no way to use it online

17:28 <yoyo[RKN]> ;)

17:29 <yoyo[RKN]> I sponsor myself and get some taxes back

17:30 <Docteh_> tomorrow: everyones running their own distributed tax evasion ;)

17:30 <PovAddict> Docteh_: bah

17:31 <PovAddict> do distributed password bruteforcing on homebanking sites

17:31 <PovAddict> :P

20:56 <KamusHadenes> hello there

20:57 <KamusHadenes> I changed my email on, and it changed my email on every project I participate, but also changed my cross-project id

20:57 <KamusHadenes> can it be reverted?

20:59 <PovAddict> no, the cross-project ID is generated using your email address (and other things)

20:59 <KamusHadenes> uh, bye world statistcs?

21:00 <PovAddict> why bye?

21:00 <PovAddict> same statistics on a different ID :P

21:00 <KamusHadenes> yep, explain that to cross-projects certificate :P

21:00 <PovAddict> when did you do the change?

21:00 <KamusHadenes> now, hahaha

21:01 <KamusHadenes> just 10 minutes before trying to generate my cert

21:01 <KamusHadenes> :(

21:01 <PovAddict> some projects export stats only once a day

21:01 <KamusHadenes> damn, only 10 minutes to have it

21:01 <KamusHadenes> so my old stats will be migrated?

21:01 <PovAddict> some stats sites only get stats from projects once a day

21:02 <PovAddict> so wait around 24 hours :P

21:02 <KamusHadenes> wonderful

21:02 <KamusHadenes> makes me feel better :P

21:02 <KamusHadenes> thank you
