03:27 <FullFlannelJacke> I am trying to use my Nvidia card with Boinc and I can't seem to get Boinc to utilize my GPU, no matter the project I connect to.  Anyone know how to do this?  I am using Ubuntu Lucid with a GTS 250

03:49 <efc> Don't know unfortunately, many here do though, if you are here at the right hour.

13:22 <up365> To refer to Boinc using the gpu, doesn't this happen automatically from the program end, I mean there's no "check box" to force it to work.

13:26 <PovAddict> there is such a checkbox but it's on by default :P

13:26 <PovAddict> if it doesn't work, it's usually related to drivers, libraries, project temporarily not giving GPU work, or project lacking GPU support

16:52 <Docteh> heh

16:52 <Docteh> isn't einstein only partially using GPUs? or are they using more of the GPU now?

16:52 <Docteh> <-- still in CPU land

17:21 <PovAddict> desti: I get twitter failwhale

17:23 <desti> me too now

17:24 <PovAddict> I blame it on soccer

17:30 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

17:45 *** GaelicGrime has joined #boinc

18:09 <xcamel> twitter is the definition of fail.

18:09 * PovAddict won't argue that

18:11 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

18:29 <xcamel> Docteh >> einsten uses a tiny bit of cpu, and all the gpu it can get..

18:38 *** KamusHadenes has joined #boinc

18:51 <Tank_Master> twitter isnt fail

18:51 <Tank_Master> its epic fail

18:52 <MTughan> Except when Jeph Jacques uses it.

18:57 <Tank_Master> who?

19:00 <xcamel> beyond epic fail

19:00 <xcamel> epic fail with double facepalm

19:01 <MTughan> Tank_Master: Comic artist who does Questionable Content.

23:40 <zombie67> pov?

23:40 <PovAddict> hmm?

23:40 <zombie67> question

23:41 <zombie67> about BOINC forums

23:42 <zombie67> has anyone ever asked to have the user's team name show up in the left hand panel, like credits, join date, etc?

23:42 <PovAddict> I haven't seen such a request myself

23:42 <zombie67> would it be a difficult thing to code?

23:43 <PovAddict> hmm

23:43 <PovAddict> a quick n dirty addition of that would be easy

23:43 <PovAddict> the most naive way would add one SQL query per post

23:44 <PovAddict> could be easily taken down to one SQL query per unique user posting to the thread

23:44 <zombie67> if I submit a trac request, do you think it will be acted on?

23:44 <PovAddict> not sure

23:45 <zombie67> what is that left hand panel called?

23:45 <PovAddict> I saw bugs that were actually *fixed* long after they were reported, but they didn't get closed... makes me think devs don't remember the bugtracker exists :P

23:46 <PovAddict> also minor easily-fixed bugs ("Add command line function to allow boinc manager to select target computer") opened 3yrs ago sleeping in Trac

23:47 <zombie67> how is this?:  Short summary:  Add team name to user info in forum

23:47 <zombie67> Full description:  In the forum, I would like to have a field added for team name, under the user's name, in the left hand panel

23:48 <PovAddict> seems OK

23:49 <zombie67> priority?

23:49 <PovAddict> leave it to its default

23:49 <zombie67> assign to?

23:49 <PovAddict> if you set the Component, it will assign it to someone already

23:50 <zombie67> I selected web - forums

23:50 <zombie67> okay?

23:50 <PovAddict> (imho it'd be better if it didn't assign to someone by default, so devs assign it to themselves when they actually think they'll work on it... meh)

23:50 <PovAddict> zombie67: I can edit any of that after you submit anyway :P

23:51 <zombie67> #997!

23:51 <PovAddict> ohh boy... this code is as inefficient as I remembered it

23:51 <PovAddict> one extra query for the team name will be unnoticeable

23:51 <zombie67> cool

23:51 <zombie67> is syn dead?

23:53 <PovAddict> it's not in very good health but I wouldn't call it dead

23:55 <zombie67> heh

23:55 <zombie67> talked to MT lately?

23:55 <PovAddict> yeah

23:56 <zombie67> did he mention anything about that app?

23:56 <zombie67> if not, that's fine

23:56 <PovAddict> he has a job and not enough free time; although not as badly as Didactylos

23:56 <zombie67> just checking

23:56 <PovAddict> zombie67: nope, didn't mention mac app

23:56 <zombie67> a job?!  I thought he was a student?

23:57 <PovAddict> I don't know/remember details

23:58 <PovAddict> I don't know if he dropped out or what

23:58 <PovAddict> but as a student he lasted longer than me at least :p

23:58 <zombie67> what?

23:59 <zombie67> last time I checked, you were in HS

23:59 <zombie67> did you drop out of HS?
