20:09 *** floatingfeijoa has joined #boinc

20:09 <floatingfeijoa> Hi, is anyone else running BOINC on Ubuntu?

20:10 <floatingfeijoa> I find that it is impossible to get the BOINC manager to go away!

20:10 <floatingfeijoa> The icon always sits in my dock no matter how many times I hit "Close"

20:17 *** NudgeyNR has joined #boinc

20:27 <floatingfeijoa> also does anyone know how to make your seti@home account private? I don't like the fact that people can look up my IP address, the hardware in my computer, disk usage, operating system, etc etc

20:38 <desti> killall boincmgr

20:57 <floatingfeijoa> thanks desti :)

20:58 <floatingfeijoa> I found a more elegant solution actually for anyone else using Ubuntu. Install KDocker from the software centre, you can tuck the BOINC manager away in your system tray :)

21:02 *** efc has joined #boinc

21:45 *** MasterBob has joined #boinc

21:45 <MasterBob> hello!

21:51 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

21:53 <MasterBob> So I spun up an EC2 instance to run boinc. I want to shut it down now. is there a graceful way for me to do this? (ie, abort tasks and get no more tasks)?

22:40 <PovAddict> yes

22:40 <PovAddict> with boinccmd you can set the 'no more tasks' flag on each project you're attached to

22:41 <MasterBob> PovAddict! Awesome

22:41 <PovAddict> then wait for the remaining tasks to complete

22:42 <MasterBob> Huzzah!

22:42 <PovAddict> or abort them, which you'll also have to do task by task (hint: abort the unstarted ones first :P)

22:42 <MasterBob> Thanks!

22:42 <MasterBob> or both?

22:42 <PovAddict> hm?

22:43 <PovAddict> oh, abort unstarted ones and let the rest run to completion?

22:44 <PovAddict> floatingfeijoa: your IP address is *never* shown to anyone except yourself

22:44 <MasterBob> PovAddict: yes

22:45 <PovAddict> MasterBob: sure, that's probably the best actually

23:13 <floatingfeijoa> PovAddict there is a page called "My Account" that shows it. When I post the link into any web browser all that information is visible without me having to log in (even after erasing cookies etc)

23:15 <PovAddict> the 'my account' page is inherently only the account of the logged-in user

23:15 <floatingfeijoa> okay PovAddict thanks for the info :)

23:15 <PovAddict> have you tried the Logout link?

23:15 <floatingfeijoa> it just seems to log me in automatically, I guess.

23:16 <floatingfeijoa> yeah when I log out and go back to the "my account" page (linked to from within the boinc manager) I get logged in again

23:22 *** Boosh1 has joined #boinc

23:22 *** Boosh1 is now known as Boosh

23:23 <Boosh> Greetings.  If you contribute cycles to SETI, are they going to let you know when they discover intelligent life?  :)

23:23 <MasterBob> They'll let the world know.

23:23 <MasterBob> and you at the same time

23:24 <Boosh> So they aren't beholden so some secret government hooza-whatsit?

23:25 <MasterBob> Not officially ;)

23:25 <Boosh> heh, indeed

23:26 <Boosh> What projects if any do you contribute cycles to MasterBob?

23:26 <MasterBob> World Community Grid

23:26 <MasterBob> I did SETI@Home back when it was it's own client

23:27 <MasterBob> And a bit for when BOINC first came out

23:27 <MasterBob> Also did Folding@Home at one point as well.

23:28 <Boosh> I've been doing LHC for about a week now, but I guess since they might have found the HB, they don't need me anymore :)

23:29 <MasterBob> I like the WCG
