[19:15] <jcoxon> evening all
[19:15] <icez> howdy jcoxon
[19:15] <jcoxon> hey icez
[19:15] <jcoxon> hows it going?
[19:15] <icez> pretty good actually, you?
[19:16] <jcoxon> yeah good thanks
[19:18] <jcoxon> slowly building peg V - though am slightly delayed as need to get hold of a crimping thingy to crimp some connectors
[19:18] <icez> ethernet crimpers?
[19:20] <jcoxon> nah just simple molex connectore
[19:20] <jcoxon> for 2 or 3 wires
[19:20] <icez> ok
[19:20] <jcoxon> i'm trying to make it more modular - easier to change stuff
[19:20] <icez> too bad you live so far, I have a bunch of crimpers of all kinds :)
[19:22] <jcoxon> hehe

[23:56] <jcoxon> kite finished
[23:56] <jcoxon> gonna fly it tomorrow
[23:56] <jcoxon> making kites does actually have a high altitude purpose
[23:56] <icez> I've never made one in my life
[23:57] <icez> I don't even know how to make them start to fly:)
[23:57] <jcoxon> kites are easy to fly
[23:57] <jcoxon> just need a bit of wind and someone to throw it up for you
[23:57] <jcoxon> might require a bit of running to get some altitud
[23:57] <jcoxon> e
[23:57] <icez> ok:)
[23:58] <icez> I have a neighbor with about 30 different kites
[23:58] <icez> he likes to spend his sundays making them fly;)
[23:58] <jcoxon> from kites we then go to parafoils
[23:58] <jcoxon> then parawings
[23:58] <jcoxon> then steerable descent :-p
[23:58] <icez> :D
[23:59] <icez> I had another weird (and fairly dangerous) idea on how to steer something
[23:59] <icez> kind of hard to explain over IRC
