[01:37:16] * watt wonders if it's a good idea to upgrade my gcc to 3.4
[01:40:30] <watt> hmm.. yeah, it is up to 3.4.3 now... might as well.

[14:05:03] <wjp> one more intrinsic done... almost there :-)

[16:58:19] <wjp> and another one...
[17:02:27] <wjp> (TonysBalls :-) )
[17:03:57] <wjp> not quite right, but it'll do for now
[17:19:44] <edbgon> interesting

[17:27:11] <wjp> hi Max
[17:30:10] <Fingolfin> yo willem
[17:32:10] <Fingolfin> hm, so I need about 7.5 MB RAM for this computation...
[17:32:13] <Fingolfin> err
[17:32:14] <Fingolfin> 7.5 GB
[17:32:27] <Fingolfin> maybe if I do it cleverly I can put this down to 6 GB...
[17:32:45] <Fingolfin> somehow, that improvement doesn't sound to helpful, though...
[17:32:51] <Fingolfin> hrm
[17:33:24] <Fingolfin> it would be nice if somebody would invent a more efficient way to compute a finitely presented group's index in another group
[17:33:36] <Fingolfin> like, within the next couple weeks =)
[17:33:54] <Fingolfin> alternatively, maybe somebody could borrow me their machine with 8GB+ ram?
[17:34:19] * Fingolfin pokes exultbot: hey fella, got a spare 8 GB machine sitting around?
[17:39:34] <wjp> hm, most I have access to is a 2Gb machine
[17:40:21] <wjp> (with 4Gb swap)
[17:42:02] <wjp> but it's 32bit, so no more than 4Gb/process...
[17:58:36] <Fingolfin> actually, my supervisor has a 4 GB machine on which we originally planned to run this on
[17:58:43] <Fingolfin> but as I now discovered, it's not enough =)
[17:58:57] <Fingolfin> ah well, I guess unless I am extremly lucky, this means back to the drawing board
[17:59:06] <Fingolfin> maybe I can come up with a cool trick to avoid the issue...
[18:21:15] <wjp> ok, fireballs look a bit better now

[20:07:59] <wjp> and another one...
[20:08:05] <wjp> (feedAvatar)
[20:08:51] <wjp> invertScreen, playEndgame and the SFX ones are the only intrinsics remaining
[20:32:18] <Fingolfin> what about the SFX stuff? what's the status of that?
[20:34:18] <wjp> no code written yet, other than the audio decompression code
