16:02 *** Ellipsis753 has joined #boinc

16:06 <Ellipsis753> Is there something like boinc for rendering your own things? In a kinda, gain credits to render your stuff. Leave computer on to render others?

16:06 <PovAddict> rendering?

16:07 *** Caterpillar has joined #boinc

16:07 <Ellipsis753> PovAddict, Like, 3d graphics and such.

16:07 <PovAddict> BURP does rendering, but so far they didn't add any sort of "payment" (eg. via credits gained by processing for others), because they have more CPU power than people submitting renders to do

16:08 <PovAddict> I haven't looked at its progress for a year or two though

16:08 <Ellipsis753> can I submit something totally pointless to be rendered?

16:08 <PovAddict> I don't know their policies

16:08 <Ellipsis753> (as in, not pointless for me, but foreverone else as no one else could have an interest in it)

16:08 <Ellipsis753> It's pretty cool. We need more digits of Pi though.

16:10 <Ellipsis753> It's strange that there can be too much cpu. Surely there's some use for any extra?

16:11 <PovAddict> "The sheer size of the renderfarm means that there is much more computing power available than work to fill it"

16:16 <Ellipsis753> That's cool. And I'm sure this wouldn't work, but why can't they just get any extra cpu to go to calculating Pi for example? 5 trillion digits is not enough.

16:16 <PovAddict> because nobody cares about having more digits?

16:18 <Ellipsis753> True ^^ (although I kinda do), but I'm sure that the pojects such as the working out the milky way progect could work it out faster with more cpu?

16:18 <PovAddict> every project can work faster with more CPU :P

16:18 <PovAddict> that's like, obvious

16:21 <Ellipsis753> Yeah, I know ^^ So I'm wondering how come they don't use cpu that is "spare"

16:21 <Ellipsis753> If it'd just go to waste otherwise.

16:23 *** Egor|h has left #boinc

16:24 <PovAddict> they don't?

16:26 <PovAddict> a waste would be if BURP threw useless animations in the render queue because they have "spare CPU"

16:26 <Ellipsis753> you said they had more cpu than renders, sorry am I misunderstanding?

16:26 <PovAddict> yes

16:26 <PovAddict> so what do you think they should do? render everything in higher quality just because they can?

16:26 <PovAddict> if they *don't* do that, then those volunteer computers will contribute more CPU to other projects isntead

16:27 <Ellipsis753> Ahh, so they are still being used for projects.

16:27 <Ellipsis753> Cool

16:28 <Ellipsis753> I thought you meant they were somehow having no use at all.

16:28 <PovAddict> well, unless someone decides to only contribute to BURP

16:28 <Ellipsis753> and being wasted

16:28 <PovAddict> but that's his problem

16:28 *** DerMeister has joined #boinc

16:28 <PovAddict> there's also a billion people who don't run BOINC at all :P

16:28 <Ellipsis753> ^^

16:28 <Ellipsis753> yeah

16:29 <Ellipsis753> it dosn't look great for your computer though.

16:29 <Ellipsis753> how do I add burp to bionc anyway?

16:30 <PovAddict> http://burp.renderfarming.net/

16:30 <Romulus> Title: BURP (at burp.renderfarming.net)

16:31 <Ellipsis753> Yeah, I've installed and am running boinc, do I have to add burp?

16:33 <PovAddict> go to "attach project" on your boinc manager, and give it the project URL

16:35 <Ellipsis753> ahh, ok thanks, that's setup now. I think.

16:35 <Ellipsis753> now I just leave it running and it will do burp and the milkyway?

16:38 <PovAddict> are you using the so-called simple GUI?

16:38 <Ellipsis753> advanced I think.

16:38 <Ellipsis753> The simple one seems kinda strange.

16:40 <PovAddict> ok, watch your Tasks tab, see if you got anything from BURP

16:41 <Ellipsis753> ooo, I do.

16:41 <Ellipsis753> no, wait, I don't again.

16:41 <Ellipsis753> or something

16:41 <Ellipsis753> Ooo, I donated 52.1kb to it or something.

16:44 *** mweltin is now known as mw_away

16:45 *** whynot has joined #boinc

16:45 <Ellipsis753> can I change the priority or osmething

17:25 *** Simone has joined #boinc

17:29 <Ellipsis753> Hum, burp seems to not be getting any of my cpu how come?

17:29 <Ellipsis753> also can I just close boinc or will I loose stuff?

17:33 <Tank_Master> they may not have work for your platform currently

17:34 <PovAddict> depends

17:34 <Tank_Master> and it depends on how you installed/ran boinc if you can close the manager, but most cases you can

17:37 <Ellipsis753> thanks, apparently milky way is only 3.7% done

17:37 <Ellipsis753> can I still just leave it?

17:37 <Tank_Master> yes

17:37 <Ellipsis753> cool

17:37 <Ellipsis753> thanks

17:37 <Tank_Master> its up to you

17:38 <Tank_Master> theres options to syspend conputation if you need the resouces for yourself

17:39 <Ellipsis753> will it start automatically when I turn my computer on?

17:39 <Tank_Master> what OS are you on?

17:40 <Tank_Master> probably

17:43 <Ellipsis753> I'm on ubuntu 32-bit.

17:43 <Ellipsis753> I don't really want it to autostart. :/
