[21:21] <phatmonkey> hey kc0wys
[21:21] <phatmonkey> any news?
[21:21] <kc0wys> no :(
[21:21] <kc0wys> but i've already started on ENSURE-2
[21:22] <phatmonkey> damn
[21:22] <phatmonkey> nice
[21:22] <kc0wys> i have the polystyrene in the garage
[21:22] <phatmonkey> did you drive after it before the radio died?
[21:22] <kc0wys> 2" thick - overkill insulation :)
[21:22] <phatmonkey> nice
[21:22] <phatmonkey> i guess i need to think about insulation for mine
[21:22] <kc0wys> the radio never died, but the computer died just after we released it
[21:22] <kc0wys> it got to 788M when it quit
[21:22] <phatmonkey> well, before the batteries died then ;)
[21:22] <kc0wys> the batteries didnt die either :P
[21:23] <kc0wys> the v-reg overheated
[21:23] <phatmonkey> i shall start that sentence again, hehe
[21:23] <kc0wys> lol i just wanted to clarify
[21:23] <phatmonkey> did you go searching for it before the batteries ran out by locating the radio signal?
[21:23] <kc0wys> yea, but i had no directional antenna and i tried using my body but it wasn't exact enough
[21:24] <phatmonkey> damn
[21:29] <kc0wys> so james and I can stand for what happens when you hurry too much ;)
[21:29] <kc0wys> it's a "let that be a lesson to you all" moment
[21:32] <phatmonkey> yeah
[21:32] <phatmonkey> i've been aiming to get a glider done by november because i'm doing a charity event then
[21:32] <phatmonkey> i don't think i'll rush it
[21:33] <phatmonkey> i'll have an uncontrolled payload on hand if the glider isn't ready
[21:41] <kc0wys> oh nice
[21:41] <kc0wys> yeah I have decided that ENSURE-2 will be a minimalist launch
[21:41] <kc0wys> then I will use ENSURE-2 as the communications module for ENSURE-3
[21:42] <kc0wys> IF i indeed recover ENSURE-2
[21:42] <kc0wys> heh
[21:48] <phatmonkey> if you do it carefully, you will
[21:48] <phatmonkey> your first just seemed all a bit hacked together!
[22:51] <kc0wys> hey!
[22:53] <kc0wys> one thing this aint gonna be is hacked together
[22:53] <kc0wys> the last one i was trying to do something (send live images and telemetry) with a budget that didn't permit
[22:53] <kc0wys> that's my explanation
[23:31] <kc0wys> wow this is hard -- organizing electronics components and peripherals
[23:40] <Tiger^> organizing?
[23:40] <kc0wys> ya
[23:40] <kc0wys> dude this room was so messy after the launch i couldn't find anything
[23:41] <kc0wys> ^_^
[23:41] <Tiger^> ah
[23:41] <Tiger^> right
[23:41] <Tiger^> i still haven't finished cleaning up mine
[23:41] <Tiger^> hehe
[23:41] <Tiger^> and it's been what, 1.5 month
[23:43] <kc0wys> oh wow
[23:44] <kc0wys> well certain family members over here get pissed when stuff lays around for large amounts of time
[23:44] <kc0wys> ;)
[23:50] <phatmonkey> i have a whole room dedicated for dumping stuff, it's hard to move around
[23:50] <phatmonkey> there's never been any reason to clean up
[23:50] <phatmonkey> hehe
[23:52] <kc0wys> lol
[23:59] <Tiger^> kc0wys: yeah my wife has stopped trying to make me clean up :P
