IRC logs of #boinc for Sunday, 2010-10-24

00:00 <wdsmia> sould be good for 150-200K

00:00 <efc> really need to get a new machine myself. This is a p4/2.8 from 2005, with a Ti4400 from 2002.

00:01 <wdsmia> this one is a pent D

00:03 <efc> I don't have the enthusiasm to study all the options like I used to

00:03 <efc> Also, there are way more options

00:04 <efc> last CPU i got was probably a $600 p2-266 in 1997. Geez that was a lot.

00:05 <wdsmia> I remember paying $1000+ for a 386 33

00:06 <efc> sweet days for Intel

00:07 <efc> That era of processors never really got the software they deserved

00:07 <wdsmia> it was big time with 64K of memory lol

00:07 * PovAddict still on his 8600GT

00:08 * wdsmia throws PovAddict back into the crevasse

00:09 <efc> I have this long term plan to build a 386 motherboard (scratch)

00:09 <efc> probably the newest thing in my range

00:10 <PovAddict> I tried CUDA and it noiceably lagged the desktop, and changed fan sound (none of my gfx-heavy apps used enough GPU to change fan speed noticeably)

00:11 <wdsmia> try a ATI next time

00:12 <PovAddict> afaik ATI's drivers suck on Linux

00:13 <wdsmia> good thing I dont do *nix at home :)

00:14 <PovAddict> good thing my main use for a computer isn't BOINC credits

00:14 * wdsmia dumps a box of deadly crevasse spiders on PovAddict's head

00:16 <efc> think i will stick to nv for the drivers. it was a long time ago but my last couple ati's were dissapointing on that front.

00:19 <PovAddict> even blur effect on the desktop gave me lower framerates on this card, unfortunately...

00:20 <PovAddict> (window transparency is much more awesome with some blur)

00:23 <efc> well, this new thing is useless for all the updates trying to run on it

04:00 <richardcavell> Hi, guys.  I just installed BOINC on a 2006 second-generation MacBook (Intel Core 2 Duo), Snow Leopard, and downloaded some PrimeGrid tasks and set to work.  Half an hour later, the battery was full and the AC power was plugged in, and the computer suddenly halted.  system.log and other logs show nothing abnormal.  Is a sudden system halt like this sometimes to be expected under BOINC?

04:22 *** Simone|Away is now known as Simone

04:30 <richardcavell> Is there a log or some way that I can identify whether or not BOINC was running at a particular time?

04:30 <richardcavell> I see 'messages', but I want messages from a previous session
