05:40 <paulo_> hello

05:40 <paulo_> is there a channel for NFS@home?

06:29 <Caterpillar> paulo_:

06:29 <Caterpillar> [12:24:55] <Fuchs> Caterpillar: I'd recommend alis for searching (you can search for channels with alis, see /msg alis help list. /msg alis list *searchterm* looks for channel names containing searchterm. /msg alis list * -topic *searchterm* looks for channel topics containing searchterm.)

17:39 <PovAddict> Mumps: can you check if there's any pending RF task on your farm?

17:39 <PovAddict> there's like 50 tasks that haven't come back yet, I suspect they are done but hosts aren't reporting them

22:37 <Mumps> PovAddict, There are a few that still haven't finished.  When I checked about an hour ago, 25 left.

22:37 <PovAddict> hm maybe those only downloaded the app today

22:37 <PovAddict> or had more important projects to work on :p

22:37 <Mumps> Those hosts were already crunching 12 hour Rosetta WU's when I added them to the project, so they just needed to get one of those tasks out of the way to free up a slot for pov.

22:39 <Mumps> Some of them may also have been learning they were in deadline trouble on what was already in cache, or grabbed since.  IE, Universesends out work with real tight deadlines which commonly forces running work to suspend as soon as a Universe WU gets downloaded.

22:40 <Mumps> I hate selfish projects like that.  :)

22:40 <PovAddict> that's okay, I was just worried that they had finished and were stuck in exponential backoff uploading the results

22:40 <Mumps> Also, your comment about the caching proxy prodded me to act on it.  :)

22:40 <PovAddict> I set a 2-day deadline for these 8-hour WUs

22:41 <PovAddict> speaking of which, I should patch the work generation function to accept "2 days" as a deadline, instead of having to calculate and give "172800" (in seconds)

22:41 <Mumps> This is the second Squid proxy I had set up.  The first one I had taken to the point of caching, but then the HD died on me.  I was in a rush to get the replacement drive online and didn't go through setting up the cache settings.  Done last night.  :)

22:42 <Mumps> 86400 is such an easy number though.  :)

22:43 <PovAddict> maybe I should have set 86400, the tasks would be done by now that way :D

22:43 <Mumps> Selfish!  :)

22:43 <PovAddict> doesn't BOINC compensate for that via 'debts'?

22:43 <Mumps> VolPex sends out tasks with like a 10 second deadline on a 2 hour task...

22:43 <PovAddict> wtf

22:44 <Mumps> They want to use BOINC as a RealTime super computer and force their project to run immediately to bind hosts into a NUMA cluster...

22:44 <PovAddict> new version of BOINC should auto-abort off-deadline tasks, that'd teach them, everyone would abort immediately :D

22:44 <Mumps> Gets better.  They are bastardizing BOINC so bad...

22:44 <PovAddict> oh, they're making the nodes talk to each other?

22:45 <Mumps> They only have like 6 WU's they send out hundreds of repeat copies of.  Representing the Clusters they want to form.

22:45 <Mumps> And most folks that get the WU get told to cancel it if they don't join the cluster right away.

22:45 <Mumps> But even the ones that *do* run, end the task by aborting it.

22:45 <Mumps> So you get Credits for all the *cancelled* jobs...

22:46 <PovAddict> YES, I got this to work!

22:46 <Mumps> You never see a Completed: Success kind of result.  Ever.  :)

22:47 <PovAddict> I tried to reimplement the fractal flame algorithm myself

22:47 <PovAddict> flam3-render's output: my code's output: how I feel:

22:47 <Romulus> <> (at

22:48 <PovAddict> but now, I figured out what was different, and my code produces :D

22:49 <Mumps> That be better.  :)

22:52 <PovAddict> off to bed, again :)
