15:57 rurban not possible to connect to irc.perl.org with my laptop (identd strictness probably)

16:23 Chirag Hi :)
16:23 Chirag Got my gsoc t-shirt and certificate!
16:24 rurban1 Great! And the money also?
16:35 Chirag yes that cam last month itself :)
16:35 Chirag came*
16:36 Chirag So, are you moving back this week?
16:49 ggherdov____ joined #parrot
16:52 rurban1 next week. But I already shipped away all my stuff, esp. my 2 big machines. Only have the laptop now
16:55 Chirag oh.. even I am bogged down with my preparation for gre/toefl and my futile search for a thesis...
16:56 Chirag Will be free after 6th oct .. Really want to start with the autoboxing problem
17:04 ctlM joined #parrot
17:16 rurban I think I'll get my big machines end of oct. depending how fast the ship is traveling to hamburg
17:16 Chirag Big machines as in desktops right?
17:16 rurban but I still got a couple of VM's and remote servers, unfort. only centos
17:17 rurban Big machines as in big desktops, 32GB RAM with plenty of VMs
17:17 Chirag wow!
17:17 rurban and big SSD drives :)
17:18 Chirag !!
17:19 rurban our big build servers have >128GB RAM, but I do not touch them.
17:19 Chirag 128!! whoa!
18:03 FROGGS I've got my first blade of an ibm bladecenter today :o)
18:04 FROGGS the blades won't have much ram, cpu or disk space, but I'll have different architectures then
18:04 FROGGS I orderen powerpc blades, opteron blades, and I'll perhaps order more later
18:04 FROGGS ordered*
18:05 FROGGS I'm eager to set up an aix or osx on the powerpc's (I'm going to have three powerpc blades)
18:08 rurban ppc 64 or 32?
18:08 rurban we are missing ppc64 (or any other big endian 64-bit) badly for some years
18:10 FROGGS 64-bit IBM PowerPC 970MP with AltiVec SIMD accelerator
18:10 FROGGS http://www.ebay.de/itm/130799609440?ssPageNam‚Äče=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
18:14 rurban that's a good one
18:14 rurban Can I ask you do do some native_pbc tests then for parrot?
18:14 FROGGS I'm not going to be able to run it 24/7, but I'll make sure to smoke parrot too
18:15 FROGGS sure
18:16 rurban altivec is also good, as it has the fast hardware crc32 instruction
18:16 rurban I'd need to probe that somehow to get faster hashes
18:17 FROGGS :o)
18:33 rurban 12 euro!
18:36 FROGGS yeah :o)
18:36 FROGGS the chassis is about 180 euro, including a dvd drive and a management card
18:36 rurban ist eigentlich ein schnaeppchen
