02:40 <Zumu> SETI is still down ;(

02:40 <Zumu> should I leave it?

02:43 <Tank_Master> you should never rely on SETI for 24x7 operation

02:43 <Tank_Master> always run a side project with it if you want to keep your comp working on something

07:27 <valer> At least SETI tells us what's going on there

07:33 <valer> I'm not sure about joining LHC. They promised us mini black holes and the Earth is still here. :(

10:34 <valer> WCG requires a web-based registration. It's a bit suspicious.

10:35 <Tank_Master> why is that suspicious?

10:37 <Tank_Master> wcg uses its own backend, not the standard boinc server. This is because when wcg started off, they had their own application and setup then later supported boinc and eventually migrated to only using the boinc client

10:58 <valer> A back end that that's closed-source?

10:59 <valer> Or secretive enough that no-one knows what components they use

11:02 <valer> I'm just not sure whether I can completely remove my account, change the username etc.

11:14 <valer> If you don't make those basic things easy, it's like flipping the bird at your users.

12:10 <valer> Personally I would highlight the word O in BOINC. ;)

12:10 <valer> Err, the letter O, as in the word Open.

14:25 <Jinx> is there a guide out there on how to make BOINC use my GPU ?

14:25 <Jinx> or do i simply need to update to the latest version and i'll find it in the settings?

15:06 <microchip_> Jinx: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/GPU_computing

15:06 <Romulus> Title: GPU computing - BOINC (at boinc.berkeley.edu)

15:06 <microchip_> Jinx: nothing really special is required. Just up to date client, GPU drivers and a GPU project

15:07 * microchip_ crunches on his GTX 560 \o/

15:17 <Zumu> microchip_: 560Ti?

15:18 <microchip_> Zumu: nope, the regular 560 :)

15:21 *** whynot has joined #boinc

15:25 * microchip_ sleeps

15:25 <microchip_> nn

15:25 *** microchip_ has quit IRC

16:32 <Jinx> updated my client... getting a couple messages in event log: 12/1/2012 4:22:43 PM | World Community Grid | Message from server: The Help Conquer Cancer ATI GPU application cannot run on your graphics card

16:32 <Jinx> but

16:32 <Jinx> then also

16:33 <Jinx> 12/1/2012 4:22:43 PM | World Community Grid | Tasks for AMD/ATI GPU are available, but your preferences are set to not accept them

16:33 <Jinx> looking in preferences however, i see only a "use gpu while computer is in use"

16:33 <Jinx> nothing else gpu related

16:34 <Jinx> must that be configured by file?

16:34 <Jinx> i.e. no gui for those settings?

16:35 <Jinx> also

16:35 <Jinx> did version 7.x get rid of the right-click context menu on projects/tasks?

16:37 <PovAddict> was there ever a context menu?

16:38 <Jinx> i think version 6 had one... same functions as the buttons of the left i suppose

19:31 <Jinx> sorry, my machine crashed... if anyone responded to what i said, i missed it :(

19:31 <Jinx> unfortunately i think the crash might have something to do with boinc--possibly instability caused by DistrRgen, which continues to crash its process despite upgrading my BOINC client
