06:36 <fturco> Hello. I'd like to run BOINC on my computer for helping some interesting project with research.

06:37 <fturco> The problem is I'd like to run open source software only, but it seems many project release close source software only

06:37 <fturco> It seems I need the anonymous platform thing

06:38 <fturco> My question is: which projects support the anonymous platform mechanism beside seti@home?

06:40 <fturco> I was interested in world community grid project about clean water and solar energy, but it seems they come with proprietary software only

07:04 <fturco> many interesting project also come with 32-bit linux versions only

07:04 <fturco> but I have a pure 64-bit linux system with no 32-bit libraries

13:34 <dddh> fturco: you don't need to "resintall everything" on gentoo

13:55 <fturco> dddh, well, if I remember correctly I once switched from no-multilib to multilib for a different reason (Skype?) using a tutorial I found on the Gentoo forums

14:00 <fturco> anyway the close-source problem remains

14:05 *** efc has joined #boinc

14:08 <dddh> fturco: 32bit apps are not dynamic or have all the deps

14:08 <dddh> what is the problem with close-source apps?

14:09 <dddh> you don't want to run them?

14:09 <fturco> dddh, yes, I prefer to not use them

14:10 <PovAddictW> then compile apps yourself before attaching to the project

14:11 <fturco> PovAddictW, but it seems many projects don't release source code (for example world community grid)

14:12 <fturco> I have not done much research. the only one I found to be open source is seti@home

14:14 <PovAddictW> then don't run those projects

14:15 <PovAddictW> CPDN is closed-source, I read that it has more than a million lines of FORTRAN written over several decades, and it has commercial value (for short-term weather forecasting), so they absolutely won't release it

14:17 <fturco> OK. if there are no other objections I think I'm going to give up. Sorry

14:19 <fturco> I'm not going to offer my computing resources to anyone without knowing what they are doing

21:45 <CoderForANewYear> I'm going to need a new year - this one will be frozen solid

21:46 <PovAddictW> a storm is coming, that's why it's as cold as 27C

21:50 <efc> Pov: I ordered some for-fun solar panels today. So I can keep my flashlights going, so long as the sun shines.

21:50 <PovAddictW> price?

21:51 <efc> $125 for 80 watts and shipping

21:52 <efc> 5x10watt panels and one 30 watt
