17:58 <Anton_> does anybody know about real application of boinc/worldcommunitygrid researches?

17:58 <Anton_> did anyone invented new drug with help of this data or something like that?

17:59 <PovAddict> wcg website should say

18:04 *** paul_l has joined #boinc

18:08 <Anton_> yes, it should

18:08 <Anton_> but doesn't

18:08 <Anton_> there's only description of start\end of projects

18:08 <Anton_> but no info about real usage of the data

18:53 <RomW> WCG publishes stuff like that as a series of press releases.  See:

18:54 <RomW> It looks like each sub projects has a series of press releases, some of which are papers projects are publishing

19:37 <RomW> Doin alright, you?

19:38 <Tank_Master> just updatin stuff

19:38 <Tank_Master> doin good otherwise

19:38 <Tank_Master> og, what was the issue with installing on win8? i see thats fixed now

19:38 <Tank_Master> oh*

19:39 <RomW> Should be

19:39 <Tank_Master> how did you guys fix it though? just currious

19:39 <RomW> It turned out to be a bug in one of the custom actions

19:42 <RomW> Well, IIRC, I just had to not call an API with a bad parameter.  Apparently when I wrote the custom action it made an API call with a bad parameter and all versions of Windows silently accepted it.  Windows 8 added some additional valididity checking and started returning an error code

19:43 <Tank_Master> ah

19:43 <Tank_Master> they do seem to care more about making better code fow win8 than in the past

19:43 <Tank_Master> for*

19:44 <RomW> I think I was passing in an empty string instead of a NULL

19:44 <RomW> or something like that

19:44 <RomW> It wasn't something you could see just by looking at the code

19:45 <Tank_Master> right

19:45 <RomW> or the documentation

19:45 <Tank_Master> good to see its fixed though

19:45 <Tank_Master> i take it this wont help with installing on domain controllers still, right?

19:45 <RomW> Nope, that is completely a different can of worms

19:46 <Tank_Master> hehe

19:46 <Tank_Master> probably for the best really, shoudnt really be running boinc on that type of system

19:47 <RomW> Well, I have mixed feelings on that...

19:47 <Tank_Master> same

19:47 <RomW> As a dev, I would like to support that scenario, as a former sys admin, I think the sys admin is a nut if they do

19:48 <Tank_Master> agreed, actually :D

19:49 <RomW> The latency BOINC would introduce would have all kinds of wierd unintended consequences with database servers, web servers, and anything that has to authenticate with the directory

19:49 <Tank_Master> i was going to run it on the DC for the classroom at my last job, do to it not actually being used except for logins

19:50 <Tank_Master> but yeah, for a db... no...just no

19:52 <RomW> Well I could see a DB admin taking quite a bit of heat for the database being slow, even though it is actually the directory server being slow to autheticate the credentials.

19:53 <RomW> debugging stuff like that is non-trivial

19:53 <Tank_Master> yep
