[12:35] <phatmonkey> jcoxon, how's it going?
[12:44] <jcoxon> hey phatmonkey
[12:44] <jcoxon> its going okay
[12:44] <jcoxon> pretty much ready for tomorrow
[12:45] <phatmonkey> nice stuff
[12:45] <jcoxon> glad we didn't launch today
[12:45] <jcoxon> tis windy
[12:45] <phatmonkey> yeah
[12:47] <jcoxon> thanks for the offer of the library
[12:47] <jcoxon> i've actually made a little perl script to calculate distance form start point
[12:47] <phatmonkey> ah okay
[12:47] <jcoxon> though it doesn't take in to account the curve of the earth :-D
[12:47] <phatmonkey> :D
[12:48] <phatmonkey> that formula is stupidly complicated, i have no idea what it does
[12:48] <phatmonkey> ... but it seems to work
[12:48] <phatmonkey> calculated the distance and bearing to america quite accurately
[12:49] <phatmonkey> i've got a formula that will calculate a second set of coordinates when given the first and distance and bearing to the second too
[12:49] <phatmonkey> quite neat
[12:49] <jcoxon> i just did a bit of pythagoras
[12:51] <phatmonkey> yeah
[12:52] <phatmonkey> hmm, i might try a simpler formula for that actually
[12:52] <phatmonkey> i would prefer it to be fast than have accuracy to the friggin inch
[12:53] <jcoxon> :-D
[12:54] <phatmonkey> ahahahah, no
[12:54] <phatmonkey> accurate to 0.000015"
[12:54] <phatmonkey> dear *god*

[12:56] <phatmonkey> pah, it works, i'll just leave it

[12:57] <phatmonkey> :D
[12:59] <phatmonkey> oh nice, there's a complicated formula for the reverse too
[12:59] <phatmonkey> http://www.movable-type.co.uk/scripts/LatLongVincentyDirect.html
[12:59] <phatmonkey> didn't see that
[12:59] <phatmonkey> ... hmm
[12:59] <phatmonkey> i'll leave it for now!

[23:05] <phatmonkey> nice, that's useful
[23:06] <phatmonkey> make sure you have a mapping program handy too - the internet might not work
