06:44 <ELGono> morning don

06:44 <CoderForLife> how have you been?

06:44 <ELGono> just well thx ;) hope u doing fine, too

06:45 <CoderForLife> been doing some medical things - got an excellent report from one of my doctors yesterday

06:45 <ELGono> that are always good news

06:45 <CoderForLife> indeed

06:45 <CoderForLife> what have you been up to lately?

06:46 <ELGono> i'm just taking a break from writing letter of appliance

06:46 <CoderForLife> job?

06:46 <CoderForLife> w@#%?

06:46 <Romulus> w@#% is one, CoderForLife

06:46 <ELGono> &nolog i'm pretty sure u know Haivision

06:46 <Romulus> Bugger all, I dunno!

06:47 <CoderForLife> yes - heard of it

06:47 * CoderForLife looks

06:47 <ELGono> one of big players in realtime h.264 streaming

06:47 <CoderForLife> wow - excellent

06:47 <ELGono> hardware even used in military drones

06:48 <ELGono> hope to get a chance for pre-sales configurator / administrator

06:48 <CoderForLife> great - good luck

06:49 <CoderForLife> you'd be in Germnay?

06:49 <CoderForLife> er Germany

06:49 <ELGono> thx ;) now i have to get into tex again hehe

06:49 <ELGono> they want to expand in europe/middle east

06:49 <CoderForLife> good

06:50 <CoderForLife> you want to be important to their success =)

06:51 <ELGono> when i was reading the requirements it was like a description of what i was doing the last 8 years

06:51 <ELGono> 1:1

06:51 <CoderForLife> perfect match  =)

06:53 <ELGono> yep, now i just need to prove it with documents

06:54 <CoderForLife> sure

06:54 <ELGono> just needed one hour to remember the 2004 password of crypted backup ;)

06:55 <CoderForLife> lol

06:55 <CoderForLife> high level security

06:55 <CoderForLife> as I always say, "Security Is Rarely Convenient"

06:56 <ELGono> yea.. needed to remember, that i used an SGI keyboard back than with different layout

06:56 <ELGono> security by obscurity

06:56 <CoderForLife> lol

06:59 <ELGono> btw the SGI Indigo is still up&running ... celebrating its 20th birthday in june 2011

07:04 <CoderForLife> wow

07:05 <ELGono> SIMM B4 had an error last month, but i still have some spare modules

07:06 <CoderForLife> I would have thought you would need a whole spare Indigo by now =)

07:06 <ELGono> so cool, each module has it's own controller, so it justs shuts down that 4MB module und continues running with less ram

07:07 <CoderForLife> that's what is called engineering, but it comes with a price

07:07 <ELGono> in that case logd was affected, restarted and entry about faulty module made

07:07 <ELGono> yoe name it

07:07 <ELGono> you

07:08 <CoderForLife> why didn't the bad module eject itself?  =)

07:08 <ELGono> well you dont' even need a screwdriver to change a module in an indigo

07:09 <ELGono> i stopped time ... shutting down, changing module and booting in less than 3:50min (diskless booting via 10hdx)

07:09 <CoderForLife> I consider that top be a great feature

07:10 <CoderForLife> er to be

07:12 <ELGono> that would be one more cool feature of indigo :)

07:13 <CoderForLife> now Google lives in their campus

07:13 <ELGono> remember, it's also an espresso maschine and a power amp .....

15:16 <Tetsuo55_2> wierd that the server is green though on the server status page

15:16 <Tetsuo55_2> bug in the serverside boinc client maybe?

15:17 <yoyo_RKN> which project?

15:17 <Romulus> Rumor has it which project is mikus with again, yoyo_RKN

15:17 <Tetsuo55_2> rosetta@home

15:17 <Tetsuo55_2> there are always tasks for ABC to run, so its not a big problem, but i prefer to donate cycles to rosetta more than abc

15:18 <MTughan> Oh, no later plugin.

15:18 <PovAddict> look at the rosetta forum

15:18 <PovAddict> see if there's someone else complaining

15:18 <Tetsuo55_2> nothing

15:18 <Tetsuo55_2> but the stats reveal that nobody is able to upload results

15:19 <PovAddict> heck, it's in the front page

15:19 <PovAddict> "The SAN controller that has been causing so much trouble in the last few months finally tipped over in a rather distructive fashion"

15:19 <Tetsuo55_2> ahh finally

15:19 *** EL_Gono has joined #boinc

15:19 <Tetsuo55_2> after 3d ays

15:20 <Tetsuo55_2> am i reading correctly, that if luck is bad they have may have lost lots of results?

15:20 <PovAddict> not sure

15:21 <PovAddict> but it's not that much of a problem

15:21 <PovAddict> it can be re-processed

15:21 <Tetsuo55_2> sure, but its kind of lame to lose data like that

15:21 <Tetsuo55_2> i mean the donated cpu cycles did cost something

15:21 <Tetsuo55_2> oh and hi PovAddict :D

15:22 *** ELGono has quit IRC

15:22 <MTughan> Of course, if they knew the SAN controller was faulty, why didn't they replace it earlier on?

15:22 <Tetsuo55_2> indeed

15:23 <Tetsuo55_2> or even do correct backups

15:23 <MTughan> Even a typical lab budget should've been able to make money available for replacing critical equipment.

15:23 <Tetsuo55_2> losing 24h of data is understandable

15:23 <PovAddict> MTughan: they knew it was faulty and replaced the failed parts, and everything worked fine

15:23 <Tetsuo55_2> but more than that is just not good admin behaviour

15:24 <Tetsuo55_2> i have a question, i assume you guys donate cpu to projects too right?

15:24 <MTughan> Yes.

15:24 <Tetsuo55_2> i would like to have the following in my list

15:24 <PovAddict> I currently don't

15:24 <Tetsuo55_2> the most important project for: Math, physics and biology

15:24 <PovAddict> due to heat

15:25 <MTughan> The most important is subjective.

15:25 <Tetsuo55_2> i think ive got math covered with ABC, and bioligy with rosetta

15:25 <MTughan> I donate to WCG and ABC though.

15:25 <Tetsuo55_2> what is wcg?

15:25 <Romulus> Somebody said wcg is kind of an odd duck, Tetsuo55_2

15:25 <PovAddict> World Community Grid

15:25 <MTughan> World Community Grid.

15:25 <MTughan> forget wcg

15:25 <Romulus> Got it, MTughan.

15:25 <MTughan> wcg is World Community Grid

15:25 <MTughan> wcg?

15:25 <Romulus> wcg is World Community Grid, MTughan

15:26 <Tetsuo55_2> afaik scientists generally agree on something like a top 10 problems for their field

15:26 <Tetsuo55_2> and if i understand correctly, abc is an example of somthing very high in that top10

15:26 <MTughan> The most important depends on what area of biology you feel is important.

15:27 <Tetsuo55_2> i agree that biology is most difficult

15:27 <Tetsuo55_2> what about physics? i think spinhenge is the most likely candidate

15:27 <Tetsuo55_2> but it doesnt work on linux

15:28 <MTughan> Taken a look at Einstein@Home?

15:28 <ntat> rosetta is work now:)

15:28 <MTughan> I used to work for them a while ago.

15:29 <Tetsuo55_2> WCG looks interesting, the user doesnt have to choose the project to work on, its loadbalanced by WCG for you

15:29 <Tetsuo55_2> or do you pick and choose?

15:29 <MTughan> You can choose what projects you crunch for.

15:29 <Tetsuo55_2> ok

15:29 <Tetsuo55_2> yes ive looked at einstein, and i agree that its an important subject

15:30 <Tetsuo55_2> but there have been several events where gravitational waves should have been recorded but none where found

15:30 <Tetsuo55_2> so im not sure the theory is correct

15:31 <Tetsuo55_2> if the gravitation wave thing was correct, Cern should have formed a mini black hole, or at least twisted gravity in some way, but it did not

15:31 <Tetsuo55_2> not to mention the fact that when you calculate it through, einsteins calculation end up in double infinity, which is not possible

15:32 <Tetsuo55_2> (when you take into account the evidence as seen in quantum physics)

15:37 <Tetsuo55_2> i think i asked the wrong question before

15:38 <Tetsuo55_2> my question should have been: Which boinc projects have the biggest potential to benefit other problems than just the one its focussing on

15:38 <Tetsuo55_2> like if ABC is proven, it will also prove like 5? or 6? other big math problems

16:16 <Tetsuo55_2> ntat:  did your client also start uploadign results?  i still get "project file upload handler is missing"

16:19 <ntat> Tetsuo55_2, I still don`t send my files to server, but I`m download new file to compute:)

16:22 <Tetsuo55_2> ok
