[00:15] <edmoore_> yippee!
[00:17] <jcoxon> :-)
[00:18] <jcoxon> right
[00:18] <jcoxon> finally finished
[00:19] <jcoxon> though i have a bad feeling i'm not actually allowed to have 2 background processes running on this account
[00:19] <jcoxon> oh well
[00:19] <jcoxon> will have to see
[00:20] <jcoxon> hehe, its interesting to look at the early logs
[00:20] <edmoore_> what's in them?
[00:20] <jcoxon> oh from jan2006
[00:21] <jcoxon> when it was just phatmonkey and i
[00:21] <edmoore_> had you launched peg1 then?
[00:21] Nick change: edmoore_ -> edmoore
[00:22] <jcoxon> yup
[00:22] <jcoxon> peg1 in october 2005
[00:23] <edmoore> wey back when
[00:24] <edmoore> there are some lovely 8-bit flight computers about
[00:24] <edmoore> have a look at the Jestrel Autopilot

[12:51] <jcoxon_> i'm bogged down with this damn project
[12:51] <jcoxon_> making very slow progress
[12:53] <edmoore> why does he keep asking?

[15:37] <jcoxon> hey neontube
[15:37] <neontube> afternoon
[15:37] <neontube> i need a better irc client for osx...
[15:37] <neontube> what would u recomend ?
[15:38] <jcoxon> xchat
[15:38] <jcoxon> well thats what i use
[15:38] <jcoxon> xchat aqua
[15:38] <jcoxon> edmoore uses colloquy
[15:38] <neontube> and does it do basic things like remmeber connection settings :-P this one i curretly have doesn't
[15:38] <jcoxon> yeah
[15:39] <neontube> thats what i have now, but for some reason it refuses to cache settings
[15:39] <neontube> i'm probs not doing something right, but if it isn't obvious then its not been writen well
[15:39] <neontube> god my spelling is crap
[15:40] <jcoxon> colloquy?
[15:40] edmoore (n=edmoore@88.212.167.121) joined #highaltitude.
[15:42] <neontube> yer
[15:42] <jcoxon> xchat aqua is the simple
[15:43] <neontube> i'll give that a bash later
[15:45] fnoble (n=fnoble@81-178-250-173.dsl.pipex.com) joined #highaltitude.
[15:45] <jcoxon> yay, got my gm862 development system up and running again
[15:45] <jcoxon> had to resolder a few dodgey joints
[15:46] <neontube> http://www.kd7lmo.net/hf-aprs_mechanical.html
[15:46] <neontube> now that is a serious bomb proof payload box
[15:47] <jcoxon> hehe
[15:47] <jcoxon> gonna hurt when it hits you on the head
[15:47] <neontube> hehe happen to have one under the table
[15:48] <neontube> they chucked a couple of them out at work, they used to use them for backup tape off site transport
[15:48] <edmoore> That's a serious PCB!
[15:48] <edmoore> obviously doing a helluva lot more stuff than out payloads
[15:48] <edmoore> our*
[15:48] <neontube> well if u had invested that much time in the pcb.. u want a box that good to keep it in
[15:49] <edmoore> not going to argue with that :)
[15:49] <neontube> but they benefit from the american transmision rules for that radio coms / powers they can use
[15:49] <edmoore> yeah, I noticed the fairly serious looking transmitter section of that pcb
[15:49] <edmoore> looks lovely :)
[15:50] <neontube> u wouldn't need the radio to find that, u would here it humming 10 fields away
[15:50] <edmoore> I wonder what the dds is for...
[15:51] <edmoore> are they synthesising the carrier?
[15:51] <neontube> its for playing the in flight movie
[15:52] <edmoore> I do like the single pcb solution
[15:52] <neontube> DDS (Direct Digital Synthesizer) to generate PSK-31, 300 baud, 1200 baud, and 9600 baud APRS tracking signals.
[15:52] <neontube> so yes
[15:52] <edmoore> yep, just read it :)
[15:52] <edmoore> nice
[15:53] <neontube> l personaly like the sexy look of stacked pcbs though
[15:53] <edmoore> that is nice too
[15:54] <neontube> http://www.kd7lmo.net/beacon.html
[15:54] <edmoore> and probably a bit less massochistic from an emi pov than having a gps chipset and a massive hf transmitter on the same pcb
[15:54] <neontube> that one looks beefy in its own way too
[15:54] <neontube> looks like they have used expanding foam to make the shape packing they wanted
[15:58] Action: jcoxon has no idea how he managed to program his gm862 using the command line
[16:03] <neontube> back later...
