22:50 *** bp- has joined #boinc

22:53 <bp-> hey.. so i don't know if i'm in the correct place but i've been trying to find a IRC channel where I can ask questions about setting up my own boinc server.. i've posted in #boinc_dev as well but i'm just waiting.. sorry if this is the wrong channel/server for this!

22:56 <desti> ...not much ppl active here...

22:56 <bp-> i figured.. haha

22:56 <bp-> i'm just going thru every boinc irc channel listed on the seti@home website..

22:58 *** bp- has quit IRC

22:58 *** bp- has joined #boinc

22:59 <bp-> are there any active ircs to talk about boinc ? ..

23:02 <desti> nope

23:03 *** arsenm has joined #boinc

23:13 *** x4D54756768616E is now known as MTughan

23:21 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

23:22 <Tank_Master> bp-, this or as you mentioned, #boinc_dev, are the right place, but generally those that may be able to answer questions arent on at this time of the day

23:22 <Tank_Master> unfortently only one of the BOINC devs actually come on every once in a while

23:28 <bp-> yeah, i actually had someone in #boinc_dev help me out a bit, but he's gone to sleep..

23:28 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

23:28 <Tank_Master> pov?

23:28 <PovAddict> yes

23:28 <Tank_Master> oh high

23:29 <bp-> haha, yeah

23:29 <Tank_Master> no, was asking a question, not trying to get your attention :P

23:29 <PovAddict> I was answering the question :P

23:30 <Tank_Master> gotts love English

23:32 <bp-> what is the boinc devs handle?

23:33 <bp-> so as i camp out, i can be on the lookout

23:33 <Tank_Master> RomW i think?

23:33 <MTughan> That would be RomW if I'm not mistaken.

23:33 <bp-> i see, thank you!

23:33 <Tank_Master> as you can probably guess, he doesnt come often :P

23:33 <bp-> go figure :\

23:33 <MTughan> &seen RomW

23:33 <Romulus> MTughan: RomW was last seen in #boinc 6 weeks, 6 days, 7 hours, 25 minutes, and 10 seconds ago: <RomW> @Pov, and word on finishing up the git migration of the BOINC source?

23:34 <MTughan> &any RomW

23:34 <Romulus> MTughan: RomW was last seen in #boinc 2 years, 8 weeks, 5 days, 10 hours, 8 minutes, and 59 seconds ago: *** RomW has quit IRC ()

23:34 <bp-> lol

23:34 <Tank_Master> lol

23:34 <PovAddict> I think &any is broken

23:34 <MTughan> I don't know how that works, but okay...

23:34 <PovAddict> &plugin any

23:34 <Romulus> PovAddict: The "any" command is available in the Seen plugin.

23:34 <PovAddict> &help any

23:34 <Romulus> PovAddict: (any [<channel>] [--user <name>] [<nick>]) -- Returns the last time <nick> was seen and what <nick> was last seen doing. This includes any form of activity, instead of just PRIVMSGs. If <nick> isn't specified, returns the last activity seen in <channel>. If --user is specified, looks up name in the user database and returns the last time user was active in <channel>. <channel> is only (1 more message)

23:34 <PovAddict> &any MTughan

23:34 <Romulus> PovAddict: MTughan was last seen in #boinc 22 seconds ago: <MTughan> I don't know how that works, but okay...

23:34 <MTughan> I see the expletives are still marked out.

23:35 <PovAddict> indeed

23:35 <Tank_Master> fun times

23:35 <bp-> most users in this channel are.. boinc enthusiaists ?

23:35 <MTughan> We like to call ourselves crunchers, but yes.

23:36 <PovAddict> some people here have been on SETI@Home since before BOINC, and/or participated in the BOINC early beta

23:36 <Tank_Master> i started SETI on 01/01/01

23:36 <Tank_Master> seti clasic that is

23:36 <bp-> haha, that's cool. i wish the boinc community was a bit unified.. but i'm happy to have found an irc channel at least

23:37 <MTughan> I started SETI@Home in May 2006. So I'm a fair bit newer apparently, although I don't do SETI anymore.

23:37 <bp-> i've been trying to get my project running with zero background and it's really difficult finding documentation/help from the community..

23:37 <PovAddict> some people here are also rumored to use a significant proportion of the electricity in the city

23:37 <bp-> hahaha

23:37 <MTughan> That would be wdsmia and zombie67?

23:38 <MTughan> s/wdsmia/hawmps/ at this point, I guess.

23:39 <PovAddict> no

23:39 <PovAddict> xcamel = hawmps != wdsmia

23:39 <MTughan> Oh, right.

23:39 <PovAddict> think camel humps :p

23:39 <MTughan> Although he probably uses a city's worth of electricity himself too. He just offsets it with the solar panels.

23:39 <Tank_Master> zombie is on his way to adding 5 more AMD 7970s...

23:39 <bp->

23:39 <MTughan> I thought he was mostly with Mac Pros?

23:40 <Tank_Master> zombie67? no

23:40 <Tank_Master> he's got some to crunch under the mac

23:40 <PovAddict> I'm in need of zombie's high-RAM systems

23:40 <MTughan> Why did he want all the Mac apps from me back in the day then?

23:40 <Tank_Master> but he also has some winxp x64s

23:40 <PovAddict> MTughan: he has Mac Pros, but he's not 100% Mac

23:40 <MTughan> Can you even get drivers for WinXP x64 for the 7970s?

23:40 <Tank_Master> yes

23:41 <MTughan> Huh, didn't know they supported that.

23:41 <PovAddict> s/for the 7970s//

23:41 <PovAddict> I thought XP x64 was a driver hell

23:41 <MTughan> Yeah, I can see drivers for XP 32-bit.

23:41 <PovAddict> manufacturers only really started to bother with 64-bit in Vista days

23:42 <MTughan> Well, AMD has a link for XP x64 for the Radeon HD7000 series, so I guess they do support it.

23:42 <MTughan>

23:42 <Romulus> <> (at

23:42 <PovAddict> well I'm not saying they are non-existent

23:43 <zombie67> back

23:43 <PovAddict> but you won't find XP x64 drivers for every printer / scanner / webcam / fancy input device

23:43 <bp-> sorry for this tangent but.. if i've duplicated my sample_work_generator.cpp file and renamed it to sample_work_generator2.cpp in my .../boinc/sched directory and now i want to compile it to stick it in my existing --test_app project.. how do i go about compiling my editted .cpp file?

23:43 <MTughan> PovAddict: Well no, but AMD does offer graphics drivers for it.

23:45 <zombie67> yes, I have a mac pro (8 core), and several other macs.  I use macs for my stuff.  My dedicated crunchers are win7 x64

23:46 <MTughan> I was going to say, XP x64 would be hell to maintain.

23:46 <MTughan> Win7 makes more sense.

23:50 <zombie67> my active machines:

23:50 <Romulus> Title: Computers belonging to zombie67 [MM] (at

23:50 <zombie67> pod, you ready to have me try crunching stuff?

23:51 <zombie67> anything older than today is a VM.

23:51 <PovAddict> hell no :p

23:51 <zombie67> heh

23:51 <zombie67> just give me the word

23:52 <MTughan> zombie67: So how the heck do you have a computer with 7 cores?

23:52 <Romulus> <> (at

23:52 <PovAddict> VM?

23:52 <zombie67> If older than today, then yeah, a VM

23:53 <zombie67> if today, then it is where I told BOINC to use <100%, because the GPU needs more CPU than the task allocates.

23:54 <Tank_Master> «MTughan» cc_config
