03:21 <CoderForLife> just had some breakfast
03:22 <efc> Its a bit early.
03:22 <efc> I've not been to bed yet.
03:22 <CoderForLife> was so excited above my Code progress, I couldn't sleep past 2:30
03:22 <efc> Code doesn't excite me much anymore :/
03:24 <CoderForLife> I remember back when you were bit blitting
03:24 <CoderForLife> looking for an optimum algorithm
03:24 <efc> I mostly figured it out, did not finish though.
03:24 <efc> I'm so sick of code from work. Don't need any more.
03:25 <efc> I'm no longer deluded into thinking I can make money independently from it.
03:25 <CoderForLife> I am fully smitten with that delusion
03:25 <CoderForLife> but over time
03:26 <efc> I once had some plans. Didn't think I could pull it off though.
03:26 <CoderForLife> I just pulled together last night all my work from about 2002 until now
03:29 <efc> Verdict: Start Over ?
03:29 <CoderForLife> To quote Aragorn to Gandalf: "What does your heart tell you?"
03:30 <efc> Its been consistently saying "F this" for the past 10 years
03:30 <CoderForLife> Doesn't sound like a path you shold go down then
03:31 <efc> Too late
03:31 <CoderForLife> You've been down that road before, Neo. And you know exactly where it leads.
03:32 <efc> I have enough dough to quit now, but not forever.
03:33 <efc> 27 years, back of the envelope
03:34 <CoderForLife> then don't rush it
03:34 <CoderForLife> find something you love doing, and do that
03:35 <efc> My timeline shortens when I'm floating the VC for stuff
03:36 * CoderForLife tries to navigate the AT&T Wireless web site
03:37 <efc> Tell them to run DSL out here.
03:37 <efc> Every compound should get high speed internet access.
03:38 <CoderForLife> I'm sure that will galvinize the attention of the wireless division
03:38 <efc> There is a cell phone tower very close, but we never found that option viable for internet.
03:42 <efc> ZZzzzzzout
03:42 <efc> might be raining in the morn

16:25 <CoderForLife> pretty strong t-storms seem to be moving in
16:25 <RomW> Do you happen to know a good rule of thumb for the default number of threads in a thread pool?
16:26 <RomW> When I worked at MS, it was 1 thread per processor
16:26 <CoderForLife> generally speaking?
16:26 <RomW> yeah
16:26 <CoderForLife> golly
16:26 <CoderForLife> let me think
16:26 *** bastik-2009 has quit IRC
16:27 <RomW> Well, let me give some background
16:27 <RomW> I'm working on an alternative for the GUI RPC mechinism for BOINC
16:27 <RomW> on the manager side
16:27 <RomW> or client-side of you will
16:28 <RomW> So more than likely a few threads will be blocked on network IO
16:28 <RomW> At the same time it seems excessive for me to spin up 80 threads on and 80 proc machine if someboyd is only connected to a single host
16:29 <CoderForLife> take a crack at this Java example http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/j-jtp0730.html
16:31 <CoderForLife> iirc thread pools are typically sized between 10 and 100 for Java apps; database apps do it differently
16:31 <CoderForLife> "it all depends" =)
16:31 <RomW> lol
16:32 <RomW> doesn't it always
16:32 <CoderForLife> see - I have the necessary skillset to make it as a consultant

16:34 <TheGasGiant> hola Don
16:34 <RomW> Howdy
16:34 <TheGasGiant> g'day Rom
16:34 <CoderForLife> I'm having a light-hearted chat with RomW on thread pools
16:35 <CoderForLife> starting at the shallow end, but moving in deeper
16:35 <TheGasGiant> i see
16:35 * CoderForLife looks around
16:36 <RomW> I guess I'm going to have to wait until I'm far enough along in the coding of it to actually be able to run some tests
16:36 <TheGasGiant> don't mind me...keep discussing and I'll see if I can contribute :)
16:36 <CoderForLife> I think that's right RomW
16:36 <RomW> For now i'll just leave it at one thread for some CPU
16:36 <CoderForLife> As IBM said in that article "To tune the thread pool size effectively, you need to understand the tasks that are being queued and what they are doing. Are they CPU-bound? Are they I/O-bound? Your answers will affect how you tune your application. If you have different classes of tasks with radically different characteristics, it may make sense to have multiple work queues for different types of tasks, so each pool can be tuned acco
16:37 <CoderForLife> You may want to start just with the option of making it tunable later
16:37 <CoderForLife> don't Code yourself into a corner
16:38 <CoderForLife> Speaking of Coding, I'm making great strides TGG
16:38 <CoderForLife> Being able to focus on it while recovering of the surgery has done it a world of good
16:38 <RomW> The worker thread pool can grow or shrink dynamically
16:38 <TheGasGiant> excellent CFL
16:39 <CoderForLife> but then you risk runaway thread allocation, don't you RomW?
16:39 <xcamel> 'lo Paul..
16:39 <xcamel> and Rom
16:39 <CoderForLife> hey Jay
16:39 <TheGasGiant> g'day Jay
16:41 <CoderForLife> You might want to implement a "skulker" or "reaper" process what wakes up every so often and kills threads that have not been used after a set period of time
16:41 <RomW> I suppose, but since it is a different thread outside of the scope of the thread pool that is dolling out assignments it can be hard capped relative to the CPU count or something like that
16:41 <CoderForLife> what=that
16:42 <CoderForLife> and I don't mean Skulker - the AU rock band, TheGasGiant =)
16:43 <TheGasGiant> who? never heard of them!
16:43 <TheGasGiant> honestly...
16:43 <Romulus> Title: Skulker - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)
16:43 <TheGasGiant> CFL, recovering from the surgery OK
16:44 <CoderForLife> yeah - a bit more sore today, but I managed to get to the grocery store this morning with the family. I "supervised" while they did all the "getting" and cart pushing.
16:45 <CoderForLife> I went out to get dinner, and drove the car for the first time since a week ago Wednesday
16:45 <TheGasGiant> i'm seeing a surgeon about mine on Tuesday...with some trepedation...I don't like pain and this is the second step towards being in it
16:46 <CoderForLife> heh
16:46 <TheGasGiant> wow...A week without driving..unheard of!
16:46 <RomW> TGG, depends on the drugs they give you afterwords
16:46 <CoderForLife> well - I was having "get your attention" pain when I'd stand for awhile, sit down, and then stand up
16:46 <TheGasGiant> lol..true Rom. I think I'll be relyin gon them
16:47 <CoderForLife> I was taking percocet, but it has some side effects that worried me
16:47 <TheGasGiant> ahh..hence the no driving
16:47 <CoderForLife> that was one
16:47 <TheGasGiant> I sore (pun intended) a youtube vid of the operation...ugh.
16:48 <CoderForLife> oh wow - I didn't go there
16:48 <TheGasGiant> the cut may as well be a ceaserian!
16:49 <RomW> I don't know if I've been on percocet before
16:49 <TheGasGiant> the strongest i've has is paracetomol with some codiene...

17:16 <CoderForLife> I watched "MegaStructures : NORAD" yesterday on the NatGeo channel; how they pivoted NORAD inside Cheyenne Mountain due to fault lines they found
17:17 <CoderForLife> They had not finished mining it out or building internal structures yet
17:17 <TheGasGiant> pivoted?
17:17 <TheGasGiant> inside?
17:17 <TheGasGiant> mountain?
17:17 <CoderForLife> yup
17:18 <TheGasGiant> you mean they adapted to what they found as they constructed...
17:18 <CoderForLife> once they dug into the mountain, they found some unexpected faults
17:18 <CoderForLife> if they built it as designed, a nuke popped on the mountain could crush NORAD
17:18 <TheGasGiant> hate to imagine what might have happened if they hadn't
17:19 <CoderForLife> so they rotated the whole complex design by aout 45 degrees counter-clockwise
17:19 <CoderForLife> to better handle the faults
17:19 <CoderForLife> then built a hardened dome over the command center itself
17:20 <CoderForLife> before that, NORAD was in an office building in downtown Colorado Springs

18:10 <CoderForLife_> yep - getting pretty fscking old
18:10 <TheGasGiant> hmmm...
18:11 <CoderForLife_> did you see:[18:08] CoderForLife: rather that than disemboweled
18:11 <CoderForLife_> [18:08] CoderForLife: pick the right surgeon
18:11 * TheGasGiant sees CFL being on hold for a loooooong time

18:12 <CoderForLife_> hmm
18:12 <CoderForLife_> [18:07] CoderForLife: oh, yes, ISO 639.2
18:12 <CoderForLife_> [18:08] CoderForLife: fascinating stuff

18:12 <CoderForLife_> only IRC dropped this time, it appears
18:12 <TheGasGiant> at least you're back online quickly
18:12 <PovAddict> ugh
18:13 *** CoderForLife has quit IRC
18:13 <PovAddict> I need some 10GB of RAM to serve as disk cache
18:13 <TheGasGiant> ugh
18:13 * CoderForLife_ checks his pockets
18:13 *** CoderForLife_ is now known as CoderForLife
18:13 * PovAddict hates I/O-bound processes
18:14 *** ChanServ sets mode: +o CoderForLife
18:14 * TheGasGiant can donate 512MB of spare DDR RAM sitting on his desk...
18:14 *** ChanServ sets mode: -o CoderForLife
18:14 <CoderForLife> well - the next time this drops it'll stay that way for awhile
18:14 <PovAddict> working with 28.7mbits/s video
18:15 <TheGasGiant> OK..
18:15 <TheGasGiant> that's full hd vid?
18:15 <PovAddict> nope, 720x480 DV
18:16 <TheGasGiant> that seems like a lot of bandwidth for that quality
18:16 <PovAddict> I think frames are encoded individually
18:16 <TheGasGiant> oh
18:17 <PovAddict> which makes it easier to edit, since you can quickly move to any position in the video, and cut it without reencoding
18:17 <TheGasGiant> convert at the end though?
18:18 <PovAddict> yup, once I'm done it'll go to a plain old DVD
18:18 <TheGasGiant> encoding that will take some time
18:19 <PovAddict> the source video (8mm analog tape) has been in a box for like 10 years, I won't mind waiting days for encoding :)
18:19 <TheGasGiant> 16 frames/sec?
18:21 <PovAddict> seems NTSC - 29.97 frames/sec with that annoying crap called interlacing
18:22 *** CoderForLife has quit IRC
18:23 * TheGasGiant slaps forehead and realises it was video not film Pov was talking about
18:24 <PovAddict> indeed :)
18:24 <TheGasGiant> i've got some of those hanging about...
18:25 <PovAddict> my sister wants to separate the tapes into two groups
18:25 <PovAddict> before and after her existence
18:26 <TheGasGiant> how are you digitising it?
18:27 <PovAddict> borrowed camera + TV tuner card that also has an RCA video input
18:28 <TheGasGiant> ahh...is the quality any good when bringing it in? I've been meaning to do it and just haven't gotten around to doing it?
18:28 <TheGasGiant> .
18:29 <PovAddict> image quality seems pretty good, considering tape age
18:29 <PovAddict> the oldest tape (1992) has some trouble playing glitch-less in one go
18:30 <PovAddict> I record 15-30 minutes and the image goes all messed up, I suspect tape is dirty/humid and affects reading head
18:30 <TheGasGiant> i'm off Pov...time to hit the day
18:30 <PovAddict> playing one of the other tapes for a short while makes it start working again
18:30 <TheGasGiant> have a good night
18:30 *** efc has joined #boinc
18:30 <PovAddict> I'm currently stitching the separately-recorded pieces on the computer :P
18:31 <PovAddict> TheGasGiant: g'night!
18:31 <TheGasGiant> that's the easy part!
18:31 <TheGasGiant> &cya
18:31 <Romulus> later ace
18:31 <efc> moo
18:31 <TheGasGiant> moo and bye :)
