12:50 AM
Ahh. Fun. I need to locate a park based off sketchy google maps directions I don't really trust and a photo of the place
 
1:17 AM
@JourneymanGeek no GPS in da phone? sygic is really cheap road gps google store App, that works in android IF your country is properly in the maps.
although it has some online stuff, it is offline, unlike google maps which are great but more often require connect. It is possible to offline google maps, but it is a pain and limited, you can "load it" up while on wi-fi with tiles
 
1:38 AM
@Psycogeek place has no address and even the army got confused
 
singapore Area 51 :-)
 
2:03 AM
removed
 
lol. Its a wierd obscure little park in the new downtown district
 
2:19 AM
If I have 2x300GB drives in a RAID-1 array, what does enabling SPAN in the raid controller do?
Do I need to link it to another RAID-1 array?
 
2:33 AM
Nevermind, figured it out! ^_^
 
3:06 AM
._.
300gb?
SAS?
 
@JourneymanGeek Yes, I believe so.
Could just be SCSI though...
I think it's SAS actually.
 
3:31 AM
I thought SCSI only went up to 137gb?
(which is also an odd size)
 
 
1 hour later…
Ash
4:53 AM
anyone here has an account with ello ?
if ( youHaveAccountWithEllo == true )
invite me;
 
dosen't requesting an invite work?
 
Ash
well , I hope that takes some time.I didn't tried it yet. And i wanted to see if anyone already joined.
 
5:10 AM
ahh
 
 
1 hour later…
6:17 AM
@Bob @allquixotic dammit I was so busy I couldn't even drop a "watch out for something big we're coming with"
and oh, all new autocomplete?
 
helo
i have some zipped file that not utf8
when i zip here the name is strange
i even cant rename it
 
@Sathya: new autocomplete was a Big Thing ;p
 
@JourneymanGeek dang
 
6:39 AM
hhhnnnnrkkk
Got to bring an old server from work home to play around with...
Plug it all in and then find out that it doesn't have a VGA or DVI output D:
 
I mentioned this a few days ago (see the transcript for context):
yesterday, by DragonLord
Who here has heard of a benchmark called HINT?
I've ultimately decided to fork it into a new project called HI64
 
7:02 AM
cool so which one is the download of a compiled binary for winders 64 bit ?
 
No compiled binaries yet
The code builds using any recent version of GCC
 
ok then let me include tested in that too :-)
 
I haven't even finished the documentation
 
Well i dont read manuels anyways :-) it does 4-5 tests shows up in a graph? (or do you have to make that seperate) Then i can use it to compare , in this case different overclock and memory settings.
 
You'd have to build separate versions for each data type
You might want to read the original README in the old-files directory
 
7:12 AM
I scanned over some of that yesterday. I use this thing sometimes for quick and dirty compare of windows only systems.
 
Also, the program writes files to a directory called datafoo where foo is passed as parameter to HI64
 
Because it was made so long ago, unlike other benchies it finishes in seconds, and provides relative results.
 
Be careful with it--it likes to eat up all your RAM and cause heavy paging before finishing
That behavior is in fact by design in the original code
I may add a feature to limit memory usage in the future
 
@DragonLord read that before, i assume the purpose would be to test "All" the memory which would include disk paging virtual junk
 
@Psycogeek Well, HINT was originally designed to test systems big and small for their performance at all storage levels, from cache to disk
I probably won't be able to port the parallel version of HINT to Windows HI64 without someone else contributing
 
7:52 AM
@Bob hi bob see my post update and tell me what to do ! thanks
 
Some QUIPS charts for the Dragon
This one is QUIPS plotted against time
 
...and this one is QUIPS plotted against memory use
These are generated from a 64-bit version of HINT with modifications that are now part of HI64
ADVANCE in hint.h is set to 1.05 for finer data sampling, but much longer run time
System has 24 GB of memory and a Core i7-4800MQ processor
...which has 32 KB L1 instruction and data caches for each core
...256 KB L2 cache per core
...and 6 MB of L3 cache shared across all cores
The memory plot shows a very rough transition from L3 cache to main memory
hint.byu.edu/tutorials/graphs/index.html provides more information about how to read these plots
@Psycogeek? You left as I was posting the QUIPS graphs above.
The plots themselves were created with OpenOffice Calc
 
8:21 AM
Morning people
Is there any where to tell what program is responsible for an entry in the event log? I have an error, the source simply says "hostscan_unknown"
 
Yay, got Refiner \o/ No gold though :(
 
Bob
9:06 AM
@Mahdi Hm.
This is a fresh Windows install, right?
...I don't really have any other ideas.
Do you know what programs you installed?
Possibly malware... or the antivirus itself.
 
9:50 AM
heh... my wife has just made the distinction that Doctor Who? is just a nerdy James Bond.
 
10:38 AM
@Bob this is the fresh windows and installed nod32 endpoint antivirus but it's something really wired whats you guess ?
 
Bob
@Mahdi I... really don't know. You obviously have other things (Firefox, Chrome, IDEA, etc.) installed. What else?
I'm talking any program you installed, any program you downloaded/ran, since installing Windows.
Because this is such a weird issue with no obvious cause.
 
intelliJ studio 2013 office some other normal developer tools
 
Bob
My current guess would be the antivirus. How often does this occur?
 
antivirus is new
no
 
11:09 AM
Any reason why typing Alt+26 wouldn't return a rightwards arrow in OneNote?
It works in this field.
 
11:20 AM
@slhck Alt invokes quick access, I guess
@slhck Try that maybe ;D
Oh, @ autocomplete now has avatars in it
 
@OliverSalzburg → That works!
@OliverSalzburg Since a few days it seems
 
Huh
img.user-image:hover {
    transition:1s;
    max-width:100%;
    max-height:100%;
}
Neat!
Should have added that ages ago
 
11:35 AM
... like many things on SE
 
12:06 PM
Well, that snippet is from my chat theme ;D
 
lol. and kicks, and reasonable roomv owner powers and /me and.... :p
