[00:00] <jcoxon> night phatmonkey
[00:00] <rocketboy> me too
[00:00] <jcoxon> rocketboy it would certainly help
[00:00] <jcoxon> could of course set up a server you could telnet into
[00:00] <jcoxon> but its a little complicated
[00:00] <rocketboy> its no problem - it will be kind of fun to play unix again
[00:03] <jcoxon> :-D

[01:24] <defy> i got just my first slope soarer a few days ago, after flying nitros for about 10 years... I'm loving it, being able to fly for 5 hours straight is nice

[16:40] <jcoxon> rocketboy, there is a way to do tables on the wiki for the balloon data
[16:44] <rocketboy> yeah I worked that out - I have just done a image version
[16:45] <rocketboy> you have the page locked
[16:45] <jcoxon> sorry
[16:45] <jcoxon> should be released now
[16:46] <jcoxon> was using it to look at the syntax
[16:47] <rocketboy> some wikis support tables - just not this one?
[16:47] <jcoxon> oh this does
[16:47] <jcoxon> it just has a funny way of doing it
[16:48] <jcoxon> http://wiki.ukhas.org.uk/wiki:syntax#tables
[16:48] <rocketboy> doh
[16:49] <rocketboy> I'll convert the data
[16:49] <jcoxon> sorry that was what i meant at the beginning
[16:55] <rocketboy> done it
[16:56] <jcoxon> cool
[17:37] <phatmonkey> hey all
[17:40] <phatmonkey> is it just me, or does the wiki say "Warning: preg_match() [function.preg-match]: Compilation failed: repeated subpattern is too long at offset 14466 in /var/www/wiki.ukhas.org.uk/inc/common.php on line 391" when editing a page

[17:51] <jcoxon> phatmonkey, yeah i've noticed that
[17:51] <jcoxon> doesn't seem to actually effect the page
[17:52] <phatmonkey> curious
[17:53] <phatmonkey> there might be a new version of the wiki actually
[17:53] <jcoxon> might help
[18:04] <phatmonkey> yep, there's a large new release
[18:05] <phatmonkey> released a few weeks ago actually
[19:13] <jcoxon> phatmonkey, rocketboy of course the most important thing for the glider project will be what names we are going to use
[19:13] <jcoxon> for hte gliders themselves
[19:14] <phatmonkey> slug 1, slug 2, slug 3
[19:14] <phatmonkey> eheheh
[19:14] <jcoxon> no way
[19:14] <phatmonkey> atlas? was there some god of flying?
[19:15] <jcoxon> wasn't atlas
[19:15] <jcoxon> also atlas is a rocket
[19:15] <phatmonkey> yeah, that was just a random suggestion
[19:21] <jcoxon> we could go the mars rover route
[19:21] <jcoxon> or
[19:21] <jcoxon> find out the old UK space names and go one from there
[19:21] <jcoxon> names of birds
[19:21] <jcoxon> brb

[19:39] <rocketboy> yeah traditionally - Non military UK space projects are birds - Skylark (sounding Rocket) Cuckoo (Booster)
[19:40] <rocketboy> Military based on colours I think - Black Knight, Blue Streak, Blue Steel
[19:41] <rocketboy> I think a bird is right for a glider - Eagle?
[19:42] <icez> atlas held up the sky from falling =]
[19:42] <icez> I think all the greek/roman gods have been taken though
[20:08] <phatmonkey> atlas would be good for a payload that stays up there then!
[20:08] <phatmonkey> i like the idea of birds
[20:08] <phatmonkey> eagle sounds fine to me
[20:23] <jcoxon> i was hoping that we could have 2 names
[20:23] <jcoxon> so rather then eagle 1 and 2
[20:23] <jcoxon> we could have eagle and ...
[20:23] <jcoxon> bbl
[20:25] <icez> you could mix an element (air,water,fire,earth) with a bird
[20:25] <icez> water eagle, earth ..., etc..
[20:53] <rocketboy> or colours red eagle, blue eagle, black eagle
