[19:54] <jcoxon> evening all
[20:00] <icez> hi
[20:03] <jcoxon> hey icez
[20:03] <jcoxon> hows the rockets going?
[20:12] <edwardmoore> hi jcoxon
[20:15] borism (n=borism@195-50-206-56-dsl.krw.estpak.ee) joined #highaltitude.
[20:15] <jcoxon> hey edwardmoore
[20:16] <jcoxon> am writing some software for receiving data from the parafoil test payload
[20:16] <edwardmoore> coolio
[20:16] <edwardmoore> am revising :(
[20:16] <jcoxon> just finished my dissertation
[20:16] <jcoxon> is on my desk
[20:16] <jcoxon> need to get it bound then hand it in
[20:16] <edwardmoore> wow, that must feel good
[20:16] <jcoxon> yeah its good
[20:17] <jcoxon> we need a name for a parafoil payloads
[20:17] <edwardmoore> how about TV chefs?
[20:17] <edwardmoore> Gordon? Jamie? Nigella?
[20:17] <jcoxon> haha
[20:19] <jcoxon> so we've done Gordon then
[20:19] <jcoxon> onto Jamie
[20:19] <jcoxon> Jamie is pretty damn advanced
[20:19] <edwardmoore> :)
[20:19] <edwardmoore> it's gonna be cool
[20:20] <jcoxon> just need a time to fly it
[20:20] <jcoxon> i've found somewhere to do the testing
[20:20] <edwardmoore> oh cool- where?
[20:20] <jcoxon> on catz pitches - they don't mind as long as we email them the day before
[20:20] <edwardmoore> the ones slightly out of town?
[20:21] <jcoxon> yeah
[20:21] <jcoxon> road access
[20:21] <edwardmoore> yep that's good
[20:22] <edwardmoore> think i've been there to play badminton
[20:22] <jcoxon> yeah - they are the ones a bit further
[20:22] <jcoxon> by the astroturf pitch
[20:22] <jcoxon> where i launched peg II
[20:22] <edwardmoore> ah i remember
[20:23] <edwardmoore> (seeing the video at any rate)
[20:24] <edwardmoore> it's a lovely evening
[20:24] <edwardmoore> would be prime for a sunset balloon flight
[20:24] <jcoxon> indeed
[20:24] Last message repeated 1 time(s).
[20:24] <jcoxon> they 'll be other times
[20:24] <jcoxon> when we have helium and permission
[20:24] <edwardmoore> aye there will
[20:24] <edwardmoore> lol
[20:24] <edwardmoore> details
[20:24] <jcoxon> indeed
[20:24] <jcoxon> serious post exam launches
[20:25] <jcoxon> i reckon we could get Peg V up a couple of times
[20:25] <edwardmoore> it'd be good to make it the most successful payload ever
[20:25] <jcoxon> i think its got potential
[20:25] <jcoxon> still haven't made the code adjustments yet
[20:25] <jcoxon> will do when there is a chance to launch
[20:26] <edwardmoore> can't wait for exams to be over
[20:26] <jcoxon> when do you finish?
[20:26] <edwardmoore> 13th june
[20:26] <edwardmoore> sorry
[20:27] <jcoxon> hehe
[20:27] <jcoxon> quite late then
[20:28] <jcoxon> well i'll be ready once you've recovered from post celebration hangover
[20:28] <edwardmoore> :)
[20:31] <jcoxon> grrr stupid computer
[20:31] <jcoxon> won't read the serial port nicely
[20:31] <edwardmoore> the one thing i don't like about macs is the serial ports are a faff
[20:32] <edwardmoore> hyperterm on an XP machine has a lot going for it
[20:32] <jcoxon> oh i use kermit
[20:32] <jcoxon> kermit is very very nice
[20:32] <jcoxon> this is more ruby correctly making a thread that reads the incoming stream off hte serial port
[20:35] <jcoxon> bingo
[20:35] <edwardmoore> working?
[20:35] <jcoxon> yeah
[20:36] <edwardmoore> coolio
[20:36] <jcoxon> its funny
[20:36] <jcoxon> it buffers up the data
[20:37] <jcoxon> so it rapidly streams at the beginning
[20:40] <jcoxon> while it does display the data
[20:40] <jcoxon> i reckon its going to be a matter of post processing
[20:41] <edwardmoore> uhuh
