13:10:03rasherHaha, I was suggesting it as an april fools joke :)
13:10:48Bagdera good joke needs preparation
13:11:39Lynx_what processing power does the archos cpu have in comparison to a modern pc? 5%?

13:12:40Lynx_Bagder: hehe, i just told my girlfried i decided to order the monitor, and she told me not to...and in a few days is my birthday. i wonder what that might mean ;)
13:12:57BagderLynx_: heh
13:13:16rasherIt means she used all your money for some fucked up theatre play ;)
13:13:39BagderLynx_: she bought you a brand new and fine 15" CRT! ;-P

13:14:11rasherIt'd end in tears

13:14:21Lynx_rasher: that's why i'm scared now.
13:14:48Lynx_but, she knows never to pick electronics stuff for me, and i told her about the dell earlier.
13:15:30rasheroh, did you make certain to say the model number loud and deliberately?
13:15:55Lynx_rasher: i gave her the link through icq ;)
13:16:12Bagder"oops, I accidentally mailed you all the info about a cool thing"
13:16:13rasherDamn geekery
13:17:20Lynx_Bagder: hehe, actually i gave up wishing for computer stuff long ago, so i didn't even expect that :)
13:18:08amiconnBagder: I am running dnet client on my amiga 24/7 for years now. It 's not too far away from archos, processor-wise...
13:18:22Lynx_i still hate the sentence "But, you already have one" when wishing for a new device to upgrade an old one
13:18:43Lynx_amiconn: did you win yet? ;)
13:18:53Bagderamiconn: no, but the main thing that prevented me to go that route is their mentioning that they don't approve of ports to devices such as mp3 players
13:19:27Lynx_Bagder: why, because the assigned jobs get lost more often than on a networked pc?
13:19:39BagderI guess
13:19:52BagderI don't remember any motivation
13:20:03amiconnI think it's mainly because it doesn't make much sense on a battery driven device
13:20:32Bagderwhy not? they're powered on a lot
13:20:42Lynx_amiconn: but "it runs on 346 platforms" is always cool to say ;)
13:21:31Bagderand "oh, I'm not just sitting here listening to music and playing tetris, I'm contributing to a better world by cracking cryptos"
13:21:42amiconnBagder: Loading the cpu 100% eats more power
13:22:33Lynx_Bagder: i somehow doubt you would be playing tetris and running dnet at the same time ;)
13:23:07Bagderthat might not result in very many md5 keys checked
13:23:26LinusNbecause you lose so quickly?
13:23:57amiconnFully loading the cpu also generates more heat, and on more powerful mobile devices this may lead to stability problems or at least more noise on
13:24:19amiconnThat's the reason why I don't run dnetc on my laptop (The noise issue)
13:24:36Bagderamiconn: well, you still have the option there
13:24:54Bagderto run or not
13:24:59amiconnYup, and the rate is much higher than on my Amiga...

13:29:57ZagorLynx_: go go :-)
13:30:30Lynx_unfortunatly there is someone sitting next to it, he would not approve...
13:30:49ZagorI run on one dual xeon ht and one dual athlon mp.
13:31:31Lynx_i have access to a 4 cpu amd something...
13:31:38Lynx_i bet that's not busy either
13:32:15Zagorit can be sensitive running this type of stuff on machines that are not your own, though.
13:32:24Lynx_i know
13:32:47ashridahi agree. some company sued an ex-employee when they noticed he'd been running seti@home or something on a truckload of their pcs.
13:32:56Lynx_do users on linux machines normally have a limit on cpu time?
13:33:06preglownah, not normally
13:33:07Lynx_this is uni though
13:33:10ashridahthey claimed it used some hysterically large amoutn of bandwidth and extra electrical power
13:33:46Lynx_ashridah: the main problem for me is always the heat and the noise when running at 100% all the time
13:33:46Zagorashridah: yeah. while suing is silly, I can understand an employer being upset at what he considers misuse of company resources.
13:34:31ashridahwell, suing your employees when they haven't actively stabbed you in the back is generally bad for moral, true
13:35:30dwihnomisuse?! you mean finding E.T is to abuse the company resources? :)
13:35:34ashridahholy fuck. 850 days, and they've only done .209% of the keyspace?
13:35:39dwihnoE.T, phone home!
13:35:49Zagor2^72 is a pretty large number :)
13:35:58ashridahwell. yes.
13:36:02BagderI like the progress meter
13:36:09Bagderyou can't even see the color to the left
13:36:24ashridahBagder: yeah. it's hard to make out if there's even a single pixel-width showing yet :)
13:37:07Lynx_maybe they need a 0-1% version below...
13:37:39ashridahheh. ah well, when ogr finishes (in about another 3000 days or so, worst case), they'll gain another 2000 participants or so :)
13:38:09ashridahsorry. not 3000, 5000
13:38:39Bagdergreat, so in about 15 years it'll go faster! ;-)
13:39:29ashridahBagder: well, realistically, all we need is a quantum computer. who wants to bet which'll come first?
13:40:41ashridahof course, they'd have to rename the project then, to distributed.not
13:40:50ashridahsince they'd only need one machine, not thousands
13:43:12 Quit rasher ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
13:44:14Lynx_can you set the client to only work on one project?
13:45:30ashridahyou can change the priority of them. it'll download datasets for every enabled project, and if it can't contact the local master, it'll just happily progress to other projects, and then start making up random data to test for itself
13:45:45ashridah(by default, i think you can change that oo)

14:11:41amiconnLynx_: You can disable individual projects, that's what I'm doing for years. I only participate in RC5
14:12:11Lynx_yes, i found it. but the people in the lab are already complaining about the noise...
14:12:21Lynx_mabye if i just run on one processor
14:12:51Lynx_is there a way to run it as a service?
14:13:45amiconnFortunately my Amiga cpu doesn't need a fan. It doesn't even need a passive radiator
14:13:51ashridahon which os?
14:14:12ashridahiirc it comes with a service-alike thing for windows, and it can background itself on unixalikes
14:16:56Lynx_windows, i'll look for it
14:17:18ashridahit normally runs as a tray icon in windows, iirc.
14:17:32ashridahbeen a while since i've used d,net
14:18:10Lynx_i know, but you have to be logged in for the tray app
14:18:36Lynx_and if i'm logged in, they know "who is making the noise"
14:18:54ashridahyeah. the docs on the site seem to suggest you run the client with -install as a flag
14:18:59amiconnLynx_: dnetc.exe -install
14:19:06ashridahthen it should show up in the services thinggy in windows
14:19:19 Join Patr3ck_ [0] (
14:19:33ashridahor you can use a screensaver multiplexor, for pretty colours (i assume it does colours)
14:20:12ashridahthat'll only run the client when no-one's using the thing, of course, and be rather obvious
14:20:28amiconnNo, the multiplexer is a multiplexer. It enables running the client and a screensaver in parallel
14:20:44Lynx_ah, thanks
14:20:56ashridahamiconn: ah. not like seti@home then.
14:21:21ashridahseti@home had this great visualisation screensaver that was far more entertaining than the idea of actually finding ET's
14:21:26Lynx_ashridah: it could have the keys tested scrolling by ;)
14:21:39Bagderfast scroll ;-)
14:21:45Lynx_i know :)
14:22:04Lynx_Bagder: that would look bad on you new 16ms lcd ;)
14:22:13ashridahwell, no, you'd graph the performance per second and print other fun stats gleaned from's site :)
14:22:44Lynx_ashridah: the message "you know rank higher than xxx" would be sufficient for most users ;)

15:36:40preglowget ready for my codec api commit!
15:36:51dwihnoFirst to commit will get extra cheese from leffes!
15:42:03LinusNfirst small step towards generic audio funcions

15:51:04t0masdon't know what LinusN did... but he has commited something :)
15:51:23LinusNit's an internal rearrangement of code
15:51:49t0masyeah, I see
15:51:57t0masmoved everything togheter in sound.h ?
15:52:01LinusNthere is a lot more to do
15:52:25LinusNthe goal is to finally start working on the playback api
15:52:51LinusNall playback code today is very archos-specific
15:53:22dwihnoso tell us what it is you've done :)
15:53:44dwihnoyou got mas papers and implemented ogg playback? :) (now THAT would be a cruel joke)
15:53:44LinusNi moved the sound setting code to a new file
15:54:04LinusNand renamed the functions
15:54:58LinusNthe playback code today is archos centric, and is named either mp3_xxx or mpeg_xxx for the same reasons
15:55:03t0mashmz... maybe you should write a todo list for simple coder's ?

16:28:24amiconnIt's somewhat difficult to discuss new ideas with you...
16:30:20amiconnDuring the day I don't have that much time for chatting, because I mainly have to work...
16:31:20amiconnAnyway, I have some ideas for rewriting the graphics api, but would like to discuss them before I go ahead

16:33:15bobTHCure a little bit hard on linus, everybody have a "real life"

16:33:48LinusNamiconn: rewriting the graphics api?
16:34:08 Join t0mas [0] (
16:34:27LinusNi have to run to the lab for a few short minutes
16:34:44LinusNdescribe what you have in mind, and i'll be back in a few moments
16:34:52amiconnLinusN: Make it more flexible, unify as much as possible for the different pixel depths, and make the code more compact
16:35:06amiconnI think I shoul make up a wiki page
16:38:11amiconnCurrently there are several functions for cdrawing/clearing/inverting the various graphics primitives. I would change that into one function per primitive, using a "draw mode" similar to how the grayscale lib works now
16:38:17 Quit Zagor ("Client exiting")
16:38:27LinusNamiconn: i can live with that
16:39:08amiconnEven the grayscale library api is not 100% consistent, I have some points for improvement
16:39:33amiconnAnother point: I know that you want the greyscale bitmaps for iriver to be in native lcd format.
16:39:45LinusNyes i do
16:39:54amiconnWhile this has some advantages, there is also at least one drawback
16:39:58LinusNor rather, i want the frame buffer to be in the native format
16:40:27amiconnIf we are going to do this, we need *3* different bitmap drawing functionsd
16:40:48LinusN3? why?
16:41:26amiconn(1) b&w bitmap (which format? Imho this should be 'similar' to the native format) (2) Native greyscale format (2 bpp) (3) Real greyscale bitmap
16:41:49amiconn(3) can be part of the plugin library if it's not needed in core
16:42:13LinusN(1) shouldn't be necessary
16:42:17amiconnYes, 8bpp with one byte per pixel, not planar
16:42:30LinusNwhen are those bitmaps needed?
16:42:47amiconn(1) is necessary afaics. How are we going to draw fonts?
16:42:58LinusNby having the fonts in the native format
16:43:11amiconnImho 2bpp fonts are a waste if we are not going to implement anti-aliasing
16:43:26LinusNnot a waste
16:43:30amiconn(which in turn is difficult with the framebuffer in native format)
16:43:32LinusNthey speed up rendering
16:43:57LinusNotherwise we would have to have a slow 1->2bpp bitmap function
16:44:16amiconnb&w bitmaps still make sense on a greyscale (or even colour) display.
16:45:08amiconnThey are small, and they can be rendered with a (settable) foreground & background colour
16:45:31LinusNb&w bitmaps can still be in the native format
16:46:06amiconnOooh, *that* will be a waste on the H3xx some time in the future.... (16 bpp iirc)
16:46:08LinusNanyway, it is a bad idea to have the frame buffer in a 1-byte-per-pixel format
16:46:31LinusNit won't fit in the internal ram
16:46:52amiconnWhy would you want that?
16:47:03amiconnThe fb is not in iram on the archos....
16:47:38amiconnAnyway, if you say let's have the fb in native format, I'll stick with that
16:47:55amiconnBoth methods have its advantages and disadvantages
16:48:36LinusNthe problem with having the fonts in b&w is speed
16:48:50LinusNrendering the fonts takes forever
16:48:58amiconnImho it won't be much slower that having them in native format
16:49:40amiconn(I'm *not* even thinking of setting them pixel by pixel as markun's patch does)
16:50:20amiconnI hope that my iriver soon arrives, would give a boost in motivation...
16:50:46LinusNif we can make the bitmap function fast enough, i'm for b&w fonts
16:50:54amiconnI think I'll make up that wiki page in the evening, and would be glad to receive comments
16:51:06LinusNany news about your iriver btw?
16:51:23amiconnI have one more graphics primitive that I want to implement... filled triangles
16:51:33LinusNin any angle?
16:51:34amiconnI have a working routine for that.
16:51:59LinusNwhat will you use it for?
16:52:07amiconnMy main drive is to get this into the grayscale lib, together with double buffering
16:52:23amiconnThen we can do that solid cube, even on archos...
16:52:24LinusN3d rendering?
16:52:56amiconnI already started writing a second greyscale lib with double buffering support
16:52:56pabsLinusN: you need 3d to render boobs, of course
16:53:05pabswhy else?
16:53:41pabsLinusN: yeah the things attached to the front of the fairer sex
16:53:51amiconnThis double-buffering greyscale lib will use the format that you don't like ;-) for it's buffers
16:54:00pabsLinusN: you might want to take a peek outside sometime :(
16:55:15amiconnThere are two reasons why this makes sense: (1) The buffer comparison will be way faster with 1byte/pixel (2) The real depth of the greyscale lib is variable (from 2 to 33 shades of grey), so there is no real native format
16:55:53LinusNamiconn: fair enough
16:55:58LinusNhave to go now
16:56:06amiconnpabs: If the new greyscale lib is available, will you write a 3d engine? ;-)
