14:56 *** infocus has joined #boinc

14:58 <infocus> I have an atom cpu. Just noticed that by keeping tasks running, one at the time, they finish earlier and I earn more credits than leaving two tasks running at the same time. CPU seems to heat up much more too

14:59 <Tank_Master> what OS are you using?

14:59 <infocus> win 7

14:59 <Tank_Master> not sure then

15:00 <infocus> atom with two threads

15:00 <Tank_Master> yeah, i had the dual core version for a while

15:01 <infocus> changed boinc config to not use both threads at the same time, task are finishing faster and cpu is heating up much more too

18:58 <wdsmia> *lo Don

18:58 <CoderForLife> hi Doug

18:58 <CoderForLife> where's Jay been lately?

18:59 <wdsmia> no idea down south?

18:59 <Rookie_69> Mexico???

18:59 <CoderForLife> hey Rookie_69

18:59 <Rookie_69> Hi, Don.

18:59 <CoderForLife> I reckon so

18:59 <CoderForLife> you loking forward to snow Glenn?

19:00 <CoderForLife> looking even

19:00 <Rookie_69> With this week's temps, I'd be down south.

19:01 <Rookie_69> Winter is my favorite season... except for all the snow, cold, and darkness.

19:01 <CoderForLife> let's see - my antivirus software vendor, located in the Czech Republic, wnats we to store all my account passwords on their server for $9.99/year

19:01 <CoderForLife> dang

19:01 <CoderForLife> wants me

19:02 <CoderForLife> Ihave a feeling that's just the beginning of the costs

19:03 <Rookie_69> In the long run, there's only one price... Every penny you have.

19:04 <CoderForLife> that's along the lines of my thinking

19:05 <CoderForLife> it does make things easier - there's just one password to crack to pwn me

19:05 <CoderForLife> think of it as an economic stimulus plan

19:07 <PovAddict> why would someone want off-site storage of *passwords*, let alone pay for it?

19:08 * PovAddict recently set up two-factor authentication to ssh to his home machine

19:08 <CoderForLife> why would I want it, or why would they want it?

19:08 <PovAddict> lol, good point

19:09 <PovAddict> wow, terrible

19:09 <CoderForLife> Like someone said, "Security Is Rarely Convenient"

19:09 <CoderForLife> and hi PovAddict

19:10 <CoderForLife> the mass of the cereal bus is tremendous - look at that gravitational lensing

19:13 * CoderForLife fires up Quicken and unlocks his *local* password vault for online account access

19:23 *** mweltin is now known as mw_away

19:24 *** efc has joined #boinc

19:29 *** mw_away has quit IRC

19:40 <CoderForLife> moo

19:41 <efc> Moo

19:55 * CoderForLife wonders how to get someone to pwn his bills, and not his money

19:56 <CoderForLife> ok - something on topic - now that the winter heating season is upon us here in the Northern Hemisphere, what are the fashionable projects to run?

19:57 * CoderForLife never thought of himself as a creature of fashion

19:58 <efc> Most of my bills are protected with state department grade encryption, can't have anybody paying those for me.

19:59 <efc> Though they might show up on wikileaks.

19:59 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: you mean what BOINC projects produce the most heat?

19:59 <CoderForLife> heh efc

19:59 <CoderForLife> actually Pov, I was thinking of producing value

19:59 <CoderForLife> heat will be a by-product

20:00 <efc> channel has been pretty quiet for months now.. seems like no new fad projects.

20:00 <CoderForLife> what projects are worthy of my kWs?

20:00 * PovAddict hasn't run BOINC at all in a while :o

20:00 <efc> How about transcoding my movie for me? Its running about 15:1 of realtime on ye old P4.

20:00 <CoderForLife> well - me either

20:01 <PovAddict> efc: consider the data transfer time too

20:01 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

20:01 <CoderForLife> and that moves the human race forward, how, efc?

20:02 <efc> I'm part of the human race right? though i guess it doesn't help me much either.

20:03 <PovAddict> according to David Anderson, human race won't move forward for too long unless we reduce population down to a few million -- one of the few things where I fully agree with him

20:03 <CoderForLife> is there a volunteer list?

20:04 <ShadowHntr> only if someone wants to give me a *massive* dilaudid overdose and a big life insurance payout to my family

20:04 <efc> Population control is great when you aren't part of the population thats getting Controlled.

20:04 <CoderForLife> I guess I wasn't specific as to if the list was the "stay" or "go" list

20:05 <efc> about 200 million in the US would be a lot more confortable

20:05 <PovAddict> efc: no need for mass extermination

20:05 <CoderForLife> be careful what you sign up for

20:05 <PovAddict> mass sterilization will do :P

20:05 * PovAddict dodges tomatos and heavier objects

20:06 <efc> But not my pliers. Snip.

20:06 * PovAddict has no sympathy for poor people struggling to feed their 12 children

20:07 <CoderForLife> so they go on the list?

20:07 <CoderForLife> maybe we should create a BOINC project to figure this all out

20:07 <efc> 12 down, 6 billion-12 to go.

20:08 <CoderForLife> if it's worthy of discussion, it's worthy of computation

20:09 <CoderForLife> let's add a function that adds emphasis to people that live in famine-prone areas - it's the only humane thing to do

20:10 <CoderForLife> and those that keep exotic animals in cages on farms in Ohio

20:11 <PovAddict>

20:11 <Romulus> <> (at

20:11 <CoderForLife> heh

20:15 <CoderForLife> Ohio is especially hazardous to monkeys, who get out the the cage only to get inside the lions

20:15 <PovAddict> :/

20:20 <CoderForLife> so - what projects should I fire up?

20:20 <PovAddict> "Hardin says that a world in which individuals rely on themselves and not on the relationship of society and man, how many children a family would have would not be a public concern. Parents who breed excessively would leave fewer descendants because they would be unable to provide for each child adequately." [...] "Hardin says that if the children of improvident parents starved to death, if overbreeding was its own punishment--then there would

20:20 <PovAddict> be no public interest in controlling the breeding of families"

20:21 <CoderForLife> hmm

20:21 <CoderForLife> And Hardin knows this how/why?

20:21 <CoderForLife> Hardin Who?

20:22 <PovAddict> Garrett Hardin, author of "The Tragedy of the Commons"

20:22 <CoderForLife> not familiar with that

20:23 <PovAddict> "The tragedy of the commons is a dilemma arising from the situation in which multiple individuals, acting independently and rationally consulting their own self-interest, will ultimately deplete a shared limited resource, even when it is clear that it is not in anyone's long-term interest for this to happen"

20:23 <CoderForLife> Sounds like Agent Smith from The Matrix

20:24 <CoderForLife> or the Nash Equilibrium from "A Beautiful Mind"

20:25 <CoderForLife> in which case the "limited resource" was the tall blonde

20:25 <CoderForLife> and the sharing was, well, um

20:26 <wdsmia> NN Glenn

20:26 <PovAddict> okay, then I don't want to know what 'deplete' meant in that case

20:26 <Rookie_69> NN.

20:26 <CoderForLife> cya Doug

20:26 <wdsmia> that sould be cya Glenn CoderForLife

20:27 <CoderForLife> ah cya Glenn

20:27 * CoderForLife inspects the log carefully

20:27 * wdsmia throws CoderForLife back into the crevasse

20:27 <Rookie_69> cya don, WDSMIA.

20:28 <CoderForLife> the crevasse is a depleted shared limited resource

20:28 <Rookie_69> Depleted moranium spiders?

20:28 <wdsmia> up yours too ROOKIE_69

20:29 *** Rookie_69 has quit IRC

20:29 <wdsmia> TGIF

20:29 <CoderForLife> if the cravasse is gone, the spiders would be in a famine-prone area

20:30 <CoderForLife> better they die, and decrease the surplus population - thanks Ebenezer

20:31 * wdsmia keeps a supply of spiders just for the channel

20:32 <CoderForLife> doubtless

20:33 <wdsmia> lol

20:33 * CoderForLife is beginning to wonder if the "chirping crickets" project is all the rage these days

20:35 *** efc has quit IRC

20:35 <wdsmia> chirping crickets? oh yea LHC is back and has work

20:35 <CoderForLife> OK  we have one vote in

20:35 <CoderForLife> from efc

20:36 <wdsmia> efc dont count :)

20:36 <PovAddict>

20:36 <Romulus> <> (at

20:36 <CoderForLife> right - he was stuffing the ballot box

20:37 <wdsmia> this election year it wont matter theres no one to vote for

20:38 <CoderForLife> great pic Pov

20:40 * CoderForLife adds the pic to his collection for business Powerpoint presentations

20:40 <CoderForLife> a good one for project management discussions about projects that unexpectedly get away from you

20:41 <CoderForLife> one of my all-time favorites

20:41 <Romulus> <> (at

20:43 <PovAddict> see through wrong21.jpg :)

20:44 <CoderForLife> is that your sink wdsmia?  kitchen sink or heat sink?

20:45 <CoderForLife> 9: always showing off for the girls

20:47 <wdsmia>

20:47 <Romulus> Title: Project Cartoon: Engineering Disaster (at

20:49 <CoderForLife> heh

20:51 <wdsmia> been there, seen it, done it

20:51 <CoderForLife> the only missing one is the field modifications to the design

20:52 <wdsmia> true

20:54 <wdsmia> but then it would work as any good field tec would tell you

20:58 <CoderForLife> but it might work then

20:59 <CoderForLife> OK  given the majority voice vote, I'll start up LHC again

21:00 <CoderForLife> I guess avoiding reducing the planet to a singularity is a praise-worthy endeavour

21:01 * CoderForLife downloads the latest Windows client

21:02 <wdsmia> LHC Highest World position ever 2 at 2011-10-27

21:02 <CoderForLife> May Zeus intervene in your pride

21:03 <CoderForLife> wow - version 6.12

21:03 <wdsmia> screw zeus 20 more days and im king of the hill :P

21:05 <wdsmia> or is that alp

21:05 <CoderForLife> it wants me to reboot to run BOINC manager

21:05 <CoderForLife> not a chance tonight

21:06 <CoderForLife> or molehill

21:06 * wdsmia dumps a box of deadly crevasse spiders on CoderForLife's head

21:06 * CoderForLife goes to take a shower

21:06 <wdsmia> rofl

21:07 <CoderForLife> I'm tossing in the towel here - I'll start up some BOINC projects tomorrow after reboot, to see where things are out there

21:08 <CoderForLife> gn friends - u2 wdsmia =)

21:08 <wdsmia> well dont install 6.12 if you want it to work NN CoderForLife

21:09 * CoderForLife slips on the version 6.12 soap bar in the shower

21:12 * wdsmia sends CoderForLife some no skid boinc shower scripts
