09:23 <albru123> Hi, can someone help me with BOINC server issue?

09:24 <albru123> xcamel?

09:49 <Caterpillar> albru123:

09:50 <Caterpillar> don't ask to ask, just ask :-)

09:52 <albru123> I have VM where I have BOINC server, I can't connect to that server from my PC, where's server running. I only get error, without any explain.

09:53 <albru123> Caterpillar, you have some experience with boinc server? :)

09:53 <Caterpillar> albru123: a server hosting a project?

09:55 <albru123> Catterpillar: using BOINC server program and installing it

10:00 <albru123> Caterpillar: using BOINC server program and installing it. Isn't too used chat :D

10:01 <Caterpillar> albru123: I don't understand what you mean for BOINC server, is it a server hosting a your own BOINCproject?

10:01 <albru123> Caterpillar: My own project, not hosting

10:01 <Caterpillar> ok ok

10:01 <Caterpillar> I have no experience in BOINC servers

10:01 <albru123> :)

10:02 <Caterpillar> in #boinc-it there is a guy called SimoneCNT who knows about it

10:02 <albru123> Caterpillar: OK, just wanna know, because I really need help, but all peoples here and at #boinc_dev is AFK

10:02 <albru123> #boinc-it

10:03 <Caterpillar> at the moment he is not connected

10:03 <albru123> yeah

10:03 <Caterpillar> anyway #boinc is one of quieter freenode channels

10:03 <Caterpillar> so...

22:43 <PovAddict> apparently SETI@Home is considering getting insurance money from the university

22:43 <PovAddict> because of the many SETI servers "killed or injured" during the university's power outages

22:44 <synapt> they never heard of surge protectors?

22:44 <synapt> lol

22:44 <PovAddict> synapt: no surges

22:44 <synapt> (of which actually usually come with insurance at that)

22:45 <synapt> Then what's killing them?

22:45 <synapt> Death by power outage is usually pretty rare for systems in my experience

22:45 <synapt> I mean stuff can be bugged, but 'killed' seems a bit unusual

22:45 <PovAddict> first, half the university's power was down for like two days

22:46 <PovAddict> eventually tracked down to a short in an underground high-voltage line

22:48 <PovAddict> synapt: from May 22: "In fact, all the buildings that make up the Space Lab went dark, as well as the nearby Math Sciences Research Institute and the Lawrence Hall of Science down the hill. Of course lots of our systems went down in an instant, others after the UPS batteries drained, and none of it graceful. Even worse: an hour or two after the outage power came back up for only a split second, jolting everything before we had the chance to reach

22:48 <PovAddict> the lab and unplug everything."

22:50 <synapt> Well I'd assume the comps shoulda been fine though, more so if there were UPS's in the way (since they often come with circuit breaks even), but I imagine that is something they could likely get coverage for

22:50 <PovAddict> a while after that was solved, they again went down for two days for a *planned* power outage the university did to repair things related to the short

22:51 <PovAddict> then on June 11: "But speaking of outages, completely separate from those previous power issues which have since been fixed, there was a brand new problem affecting just this building (and all the projects within it, including SETI@home/BOINC). This one was worse, starting in the middle of the night, and by the time anybody could do anything power was up and down several times, and some outlets delivering half power, etc."

22:51 <synapt> Yuck, brown outs, yeah that's kinda not fun :/

22:51 <PovAddict> and that killed the main web server

22:52 <synapt> just had one of those here a few weeks ago, fried my one DVD player and nearly fried a TV before I realized we were having one (noticed a small few-watt lamp in the one room was still lit and a TV in another room was buzzing)

22:53 <PovAddict> synapt: also note that many SETI servers are unstable under normal conditions already :P

22:53 <synapt> lol, true

22:53 <PovAddict> I don't know about now

22:53 <synapt> maybe insurance will cover them for an external backup generator

22:53 <synapt> :P

22:53 <PovAddict> but in the past they had some servers running pre-release CPUs that Intel gave them for free

22:55 <PovAddict> SETI gets free hardware, Intel gets free real-world testing
