[00:39] <jcoxon> hey icez
[00:39] <icez> hey jcoxon
[00:39] <jcoxon> welcome to #highaltitude
[00:39] <icez> thank you:)
[00:40] <icez> so you're the one that made it to 20km?:)
[00:40] <jcoxon> thats me
[00:40] <jcoxon> on saturday all going to plan i intend to go higher
[00:40] <icez> i love the pictures
[00:40] <jcoxon> thanks
[00:40] <icez> good luck:)
[00:41] <jcoxon> gonna need it
[00:41] <jcoxon> considering the payload isn't even finished
[00:41] <icez> i was actually refered by malgar because I had some weird ideas going through my mind with http://icez.org:81/pics/balloon.jpg
[00:43] <icez> but we had a conversation on how balloons can't really reach the space barrier:]
[00:44] <jcoxon> just to say i can't chat for long - have to go to bed
[00:44] <jcoxon> but
[00:44] <jcoxon> there is a limit to how high you can get
[00:45] <icez> yeah
[00:45] <jcoxon> there was a project involving launching a rocket from a balloon
[00:45] <jcoxon> http://www.jpaerospace.com/ have looked into this
[00:46] <icez> ok
[00:46] <jcoxon> and also http://www.nsschapters.org/al/HAL5/HALO/
[00:46] <jcoxon> the record for height seems to be 120,000ft
[00:46] <jcoxon> but i reckon higher is possible
[00:47] <icez> yeah probably
[00:47] <jcoxon> though if you think space is 100km then i'm a 5th of the way
[00:47] <icez> hehe:)
[00:48] <icez> i'm more into rockets but haven't been able to calculate how high yet
[00:49] <jcoxon> well i think it is possible to break the 100km barrier
[00:49] <jcoxon> icez, i'm sorry but i've got to go to bed - been an exceedingly long day
[00:49] <icez> ok
[00:49] <icez> nice to meet you
[00:49] <icez> :)
[00:49] <jcoxon> if you hang around on this channel i'm sure we can chat some more
[00:49] <jcoxon> night

[16:48] <jcoxon> hey all
[16:48] <icez> hey
[16:56] <jcoxon> hows it going?
[16:57] <icez> good good, you?
[16:57] <jcoxon> little stressed
[16:57] <jcoxon> just spent 2 and a half hours trying to work out why the gumstix wasn't talking to the phone
[16:57] <jcoxon> and have realised that it was actually an issue with the phone
[16:57] <jcoxon> and i probably got everything right the first time
[16:58] <icez> what's a gumstix?:)
[16:58] <jcoxon> its the mini computer that runs my balloon payload
[16:58] <jcoxon> www.gumstix.com
[16:58] <icez> oh
[16:58] <jcoxon> runs linux and is the size of a stick of gum
[17:01] <icez> wow, cool.

[17:11] <icez> why is it that I see arpa addresses everywhere now?
[17:22] <phatmonkey> your reverse DNS is not working :)
[17:22] <icez> mine?
[17:22] <icez> * phatmonkey (n=phatmonk@65.98.2.81.in-addr.arpa)
[17:22] <icez> :/
[17:22] <phatmonkey> I don't have any reverse addresses, so I'm always inarpa
[17:22] <phatmonkey> yep
[17:22] <icez> oh ok
[17:22] <icez> :)
[17:22] <phatmonkey> if you're seeing it everywhere, you might have a dns problem
[17:23] <icez> well i see it more often than I used to before
