IRC logs of #boinc for Tuesday, 2011-11-15

00:04 <RomW> What do you all think about this?

00:04 <RomW>

00:04 <RomW> First impressions

00:04 <RomW> that kind of thing

00:05 <efc> Looks pretty clean

00:05 <efc> I think the color scheme could blend a little better.. nit pick though

00:06 <RomW> Well, it needs a graphic artists touch

00:06 <RomW> :)

00:07 <efc> I like the winamp model of UI design.. everything simple and compact

00:09 <RomW> I'm begining to think the icon array is a little bit much

00:10 <efc> on each little horizontal bar?

00:10 <RomW> yeah

00:11 <efc> seems cool to me if they are for common functions

00:11 <RomW> Well, I'll keep at it

00:11 <RomW> I think I'm going to tackle the project list next

00:12 <RomW> I just finished the event log dialog

00:17 <RomW>

00:17 <Romulus> <> (at

00:21 <MTughan> RomW: Would you happen to have a link to the new GPU app that E@H is trying out?

00:22 <RomW>

00:22 <Romulus> Title: Albert@Home (at

00:23 <MTughan> Ah, so it is on Albert. I was looking over the boards and was wondering about that. Thanks.

00:23 <RomW> np

00:26 <MTughan> RomW: I've also got a bit of a problem here... Whenever I choose a function in the manager that pops up a window, the main window dulls and goes unresponsive, just as if the modal pop up was there. But it's not shown.

00:26 <MTughan> I can interact with it using the keyboard if I know what's selected, but it's not visible.

00:27 <RomW> Do you have a multi-mon setup?

00:27 <MTughan> Yes.

00:27 <RomW> Which platform?

00:27 <MTughan> Windows 7.

00:27 <RomW> Hmmmm....

00:27 <RomW> Which dialog?

00:27 <RomW> Or, which function?

00:28 <MTughan> Any. BM quit, add project, synchronize account manager, computing preferences. You name it, it's not visible.

00:29 <RomW> It sounds as though the dialogs open up off the visible portion of the screen

00:29 <MTughan> I would agree. Is there a location in a text file somewhere where it keeps the X,Y coordinates of the dialogs that I can modify?

00:29 <RomW> I've seen wxWidgets do that with negative corrds stored in the registry

00:29 <RomW> regedit

00:29 <MTughan> Key?

00:30 <RomW> HKCU\Software\Space Sciences Labratory\BOINC Manager

00:30 <RomW> We are supposed to have code in place to prevent that

00:31 <MTughan> XPos and YPos are both 0xfffffff8.

00:31 <RomW> lol

00:31 <MTughan> I'll reset both to 0.

00:31 <RomW> that'll do it

00:31 <MTughan> In decimal, 4294967288.

00:32 <MTughan> I guess I have to restart the manager, then?

00:32 <RomW> or -8 or something like that if it is signed

00:32 <RomW> yeah

00:32 <RomW> you'll probably need to adjust the registry again

00:32 <RomW> BM will save on exit

00:32 <MTughan> Indeed, it did.

00:33 <MTughan> That's more like it. Thanks again.

00:33 <RomW> Which window didn't protect itself?

00:33 <MTughan> Hmm?

00:33 *** efc has quit IRC

00:33 <RomW> The main frame?

00:34 <MTughan> The main window was still visible and on the main screen. Any dialogs were not.

00:35 <RomW> well, i'll go looking through the code again

00:35 <MTughan> Interesting... They're back to those values again.

00:35 <RomW> it'll probably happen again if you move BOINC Manager to the screen left of the start button and shutdown

00:35 <RomW> or any of the dialogs

00:35 <MTughan> All windows are still showing where they were. I haven't moved any dialogs after resetting the numbers to 0.

00:36 <RomW> well, this is just a heads up is all

00:37 <RomW> it is the act of moving BM to a screen with negative corrds that freaks out wxWidgets

00:37 <RomW> coords

00:37 <MTughan> Well... Albert's OpenCL application just crashed. Will have to report and see the output.

00:37 <MTughan> Radeon HD6950 with the latest Catalyst drivers (should be 11.10 IIRC).

00:37 <RomW> Which version of the client are you running?

00:38 <MTughan> 6.12.41, but I thought I was on the 6.13.x series before...

00:38 <RomW> yeah, i think you'll need to upgrade

00:38 <RomW> to run the OpenCL stuff

00:38 <MTughan> I've suspended all the downloaded OpenCL tasks for now.

00:39 <MTughan> Well, that's for another day then.

00:39 <MTughan> They'll keep until the morning.

00:39 <MTughan> Wow, Albert has a lot to download... Must be all the gravitational data.

00:40 <MTughan> Looks like 30+ 4MB files.

00:41 <MTughan> "[00:36:21][7000][ERROR] Failed to get OpenCL platform/device info from BOINC (error: -161)!" Certainly sounds like a BOINC problem. I'll update tomorrow.

00:41 <MTughan> &monologue

00:41 <Romulus> MTughan: Your current monologue is at least 7 lines long.

00:42 <RomW> Yeah, it is looking for additional information the client puts into init_data.xml in the slot directory

00:42 <RomW> device and platform id

00:45 *** Haldrik has joined #boinc

00:48 <MTughan> Interesting... Because all my PG tasks had timed out, I detached from the project. Just out of curiosity, I just tried reattaching, and all seems to be well now.

00:50 <MTughan> Good... Should keep my GPU busy for the night at least.

00:50 * MTughan --> bed, be back tomorrow
