[11:35] <edwardmoore> hi jcoxon
[11:38] <jcoxon> cool about tues
[11:38] <edwardmoore> yep. looks good
[11:38] <jcoxon> think we might finally get some tests done
[11:39] <jcoxon> i've also started properly working on peg V
[11:39] <jcoxon> do you want to fly anything on it?
[11:39] <jcoxon> quite happy to accomadate a little payload?
[11:42] <edwardmoore> i have nowt useful i think! sorry
[11:43] <edwardmoore> are you taking temp?
[11:44] <jcoxon> nope
[11:44] <jcoxon> its the typical adc issue
[11:44] <jcoxon> i've got 4 adcs to get working
[11:44] <jcoxon> actually thats a point
[11:44] <jcoxon> you know i wanted to use the accelerometers
[11:45] <jcoxon> but i reckon i won't be able to poll them quick enough
[11:45] <jcoxon> if you want a little project could you wack together a PIC to read the accelerometers
[11:45] <jcoxon> and i'll take temp with the ones on the gumstix
[11:45] <jcoxon> as temp won't require rapid polling
[11:46] <edwardmoore> when are you hoping to fly?
[11:46] <jcoxon> (thats of course if you have time!)
[11:46] <jcoxon> oh not for a couple of weeks
[11:46] <edwardmoore> see above :p
[11:46] <edwardmoore> might well be able to sort something
[11:46] <edwardmoore> do you have 5V available?
[11:46] <jcoxon> perhaps first weekend of term
[11:46] <jcoxon> yup
[11:46] <edwardmoore> ok cool
[11:46] <jcoxon> to power my digital compass
[11:46] <jcoxon> coming of a 9v
[11:46] <edwardmoore> if i can nick it, that'd be super
[11:46] <jcoxon> with a regulator thingy
[11:47] <edwardmoore> yeah
[11:48] <edwardmoore> how do you want to poll it?
[11:49] <jcoxon> the PIC itself?
[11:49] <edwardmoore> yeah
[11:49] <edwardmoore> do you just wanna fling any old byte at it and have it tell you all the info it has?
[11:50] <jcoxon> hmmm i've got a spare serial port but it'll be pretty difficult to solder to as its a bit broken
[11:50] <jcoxon> also got i2c
[11:50] <edwardmoore> i2c slave. sounds fun.
[11:50] <edwardmoore> h'ok will have a go at making something i2c-ish
[11:50] <jcoxon> thanks ed :-)
[11:50] <jcoxon> no hurry though
[11:50] <edwardmoore> might be be able to borrow the accelerometers from you on tues?
[11:51] <jcoxon> yeah definitly
[11:51] <edwardmoore> tyvm
[11:51] <edwardmoore> rightyho, daylight saving has thrown me and i need to have some breakfast before lunch happens
[11:51] <edwardmoore> cya later fella

[13:25] <jcoxon> rocketboy, was wondering if you knew the last known coord for Nova 5?
[13:35] <edwardmoore> yeah what happened yesterday?
[13:35] <edwardmoore> have heard nothing
[13:37] <jcoxon> gps cut around rocket launch
[13:37] <jcoxon> so got 0s for the rest of flight
[13:37] <edwardmoore> eeek
[13:37] <jcoxon> somewhere in suffolk/essex
[13:38] <edwardmoore> did picture downlink work?
[13:38] <jcoxon> they gave up trying to get it working last week
[13:39] <edwardmoore> so rocket launch knocked out gps only.... odd
[13:40] <jcoxon> broke a connector?
[13:41] <jcoxon> bbl
[13:41] <rocketboy> hiya - jc - I don't know exactly - but from the google earth track I'd say about over Haverhill
[13:51] <mc-> hi rocketboy, shall I build another GPS+radio board?

[22:07] <icez> this electronics store that sells only LEDs-stuff sells samples for the same price as the actual thing

[22:58] <LaurenceB> this PC is a nightmare
[22:58] <LaurenceB> there is some problem with the graphics card

[22:58] <LaurenceB> cant stay for long, has nova5 been found?
[22:59] <LaurenceB> guess if its found without the rocket, or the rocket is found, we'll know if it fired
[23:00] <icez> haven't heard about it
[23:01] <LaurenceB> the floppy drive seems to be toast and now I'm getting all sorts of strange problems
[23:01] <LaurenceB> well this machine is 10 years old...
