16:08 <yoyo[RKN]> what does === means in php?

16:08 <yoyo[RKN]> if($pos === 0) {

16:09 *** ntat has quit IRC

16:09 <PovAddict> it means $pos has to be an integer equal to 0

16:09 <yoyo[RKN]> and what is the difference to ==

16:09 <PovAddict> while $pos == 0 means $pos has to be something equivalent to 0 (such as int(0), bool(false), or string("0"))

16:09 <yoyo[RKN]> ah

16:10 <PovAddict> "0" == 0 is true, "0" === 0 is false

16:10 <yoyo[RKN]> because "0" is a string an not a int?

16:10 <PovAddict> right

16:23 <xcamel> 'lo

16:27 <yoyo[RKN]> this is the file, which is uploaded, $_FILES['fasta'] ?

18:20 <Rookie_69> I figured I should stop in before I fell asleep.

18:20 <efc> zzzz

18:20 <Rookie_69> Too late.

18:21 <xcamel> indeed.

18:21 <Rookie_69> Hi, Eddie, Jay.

18:23 <xcamel> 'lo Glenn

18:23 <efc> it got into the 50s today, fairly nice

18:25 <xcamel> made it to 30, better than it was.

18:27 <Rookie_69> Two inches of snow and most every main road saw an accident... What ever happened to learning how to drive before being issued a license?

18:28 <Rookie_69> My dad took me into an ice-covered parking lot and made me drive on it long before I ever saw a road.

18:29 <Rookie_69> Luckily, there were only some light standards there at the time.

18:30 <xcamel> ditto.. I was driving "stuff" by the time I was 12

18:31 <xcamel> Oh.. we figured out why the leftists always have such a hard-on for your money..

18:32 <xcamel> so-CIALIS-t

18:32 * efc thought he was reading email for a second

18:32 <Rookie_69> I think everyone has a hard-on for my money. That's why I have so little.

18:33 <Rookie_69> so-viagra-t

18:33 <Rookie_69> yours works better.

18:35 <efc> Comviagratist propoganda.

18:35 <Rookie_69> I wouldn't want to vote for the wrong lizard...

18:37 <Rookie_69> When the correct answer is D- none of the above... What to do?

18:39 <xcamel> Buy a gun.

18:40 <xcamel> then just beat yourself over the head with it.

18:40 <wdsmia> Don't Retreat... Reload!

18:40 <Rookie_69> Wrong side of the border for that lately... I think they're trying to outlaw butterknives...

18:41 <efc> Do you have any idea how much butter has been injured by butterknives?

18:42 <Rookie_69> ... and screwdrivers, sticks, toenail clippers, etc.

18:43 <Rookie_69> They've all taken chunks out of me, so I might tend to agree at times.

18:47 *** whynot has quit IRC

18:59 <efc> I looked at a couple of houses last night..

19:00 <efc> One I liked, but seemed like the foundation had shifted pretty bad on it, electrical/plumbing were very bad, and enough asbestos to insulate a ship boiler

19:00 <Rookie_69> Hopefully not just in the bedroom windows...

19:00 <Rookie_69> Ok.

19:01 <PovAddict> asbestos? :/

19:01 <Rookie_69> Stringy rock substance.

19:02 <Rookie_69> I lived up north in an asbestos shingled house... very brittle.

19:04 <Rookie_69> ... and no, it wasn't an igloo!

19:06 <efc> Asbestos, great insulator, extremely fire resistant, and gives you cancer if its ground up and you breath it

19:06 <efc> disclosure disaster

19:08 <Rookie_69> Hairs growing from places they didn't grow from before... Specifically nose and ear... Do we really have to go through a second "puberty" as we age?

19:10 <efc> Spending two hours in the bathroom again?

19:12 <Rookie_69> Yeah... plucking and clipping.

19:12 <wdsmia> way too much info

19:14 * efc gives Rookie an nose-wax gift certificate

19:15 <Rookie_69> Ouch!

19:16 <Rookie_69> I watched that on some show the other week... I reiterate... Ouch!

19:18 *** Hassan123 has joined #boinc

19:18 <Hassan123> hello

19:18 <Hassan123> I have a question

19:18 <Hassan123> scores you get on a project are accumulative, aren't they?

19:18 <Hassan123> so the graphs shouls monotonely rise

19:18 <PovAddict> right

19:19 <Hassan123> but on malariacontrol project it rose and then went back to zero

19:19 <Hassan123> what doe that mean?

19:19 <Hassan123> +s

19:19 <PovAddict> probably some problem on their end made it tell your computer your credits were 0 when they're not?

19:20 <Hassan123> well, actually I do it in order to do something useful with my computer, not for the points

19:20 <Hassan123> but it made me worry if maybe my results are not usable or so

19:25 <Hassan123> could this be the reason or am Iworried and need not be?

19:28 <xcamel> worry not.

19:28 <xcamel> could have hit right in the middle of an MC update

19:30 <Hassan123> xcamel, ok thx

19:30 <Hassan123> I'll have an eye on it in case it happens again. for it's not been only one result but already quite some addups that all nullified

19:31 <Hassan123> anyway it's a very nice piece of software

19:31 <Hassan123> more should use it!!

19:31 <Hassan123> thx

19:32 <Rookie_69> NN.

19:32 *** Rookie_69 has quit IRC

19:44 <Hassan123> ok, bed time for me

19:44 <Hassan123> thx for the info

19:44 <Hassan123> :-)

19:44 <Hassan123> byer

22:04 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

22:12 *** fcestrada has joined #boinc

22:16 <zombie67> possible to boot XP into safe mode remotely?

22:17 <PovAddict> hmm great question

22:18 <zombie67> does this look right?

22:18 <zombie67>

22:18 <Romulus> <> (at

22:19 <PovAddict> looks plausible

22:20 <PovAddict> edit boot.ini using whatever remote-file-editing mechanism (with admin access), add /safeboot:network, reboot

22:20 <zombie67> I will give it a shot

22:24 <zombie67> neat.  msconfig will do all that with check boxes

22:25 <PovAddict> "[ ] Reboot in safe mode next time" ?

22:26 <zombie67> yeah

22:26 <zombie67> and then you can select network

22:26 <PovAddict> great

22:26 <zombie67> however, I think I ran into a problem.

22:26 <PovAddict> probably all it does is edit boot.ini for you, but it's safer to use msconfig

22:26 <zombie67> I use a USB wifi adapter

22:27 <PovAddict> hmm that may be a problem

22:27 <zombie67> I am guessing it does not load in safe mode

22:27 <PovAddict> not only the USB driver, but also some other Windows service for Wi-Fi may not get loaded (eg. to handle encryption)

22:28 <zombie67> dang.  will have to haul out the monitor and keyboard/mouse after all

22:28 <PovAddict> remote reboots are usually problematic :)

22:28 <zombie67> yeah.  thanks for the help anyway

22:28 <PovAddict> get a wired kvm? :)

22:28 <zombie67> brb

22:28 <zombie67> heh.

22:29 <zombie67> that was how I used to manage them all

22:29 <PovAddict> seriously speaking, simply having wired ethernet on that machine would make things easier :)

22:29 <zombie67> yeah.  but I have them distributed all over the house to distribute the electrical load

22:30 <zombie67> house is not wired with ethernet

22:30 <PovAddict> someone in this channel said running cat5 all over the house was one of the first-week tasks after he moved :P

22:31 <zombie67> I bought this house new.  I could have done that...but it was about 2 years too early

22:31 <zombie67> brb

22:38 * PovAddict hates waiting for 4-hour tasks to finish

22:38 <PovAddict> and BOINC can't help

22:47 <zombie67> no kidding

22:48 <zombie67> tasks with >1 hr run time piss me off

22:51 <PovAddict> I wish this process could be put in BOINC to speed it up, but it's impractical and pointless... it'd let me run 100 in the time it takes to do one, but not let me do one 100x faster...

22:51 <PovAddict> (plus the tiny issue of having 65GB of input data *ahem*)
