[09:59] <edmoore> it's going ok - we're trying to build gore cutting equipment for zero pressures
[09:59] <neontube> morning all
[09:59] <edmoore> but i can't go in to that too much on here!
[09:59] <jcoxon> wow lots of hardware then
[09:59] <edmoore> hi neontube
[09:59] <jcoxon> any launches soon?
[09:59] <neontube> how goes it
[10:00] <edmoore> oh blimey, I need to go - landan town
[10:00] <edmoore> launching the zp1 as soon as we get insurance
[10:00] <edmoore> 350g payload, 25km shot
[10:00] <edmoore> 35*
[10:00] <edmoore> but the weather is rubbish atm
[10:01] <edmoore> anyway, catch you later

[15:39] <neontube> how goes it
[15:39] <Laurenceb1> bad :(

[15:40] <neontube> what subject
[15:40] <Laurenceb1> quantum computing
[15:40] <Laurenceb1> talking about explicit operator multiplication
[15:41] <Laurenceb1> I've no idea what that is
[15:41] <neontube> fun

[20:33] <Simon-MPFH> Evening all, Simon here. r/c pilot for many years, linux driver by day. I fancy a shot at some high-altitude madness
[20:33] <Laurenceb> cool
[20:33] <Laurenceb> where are you?
[20:33] <Laurenceb> UK?
[20:34] <Simon-MPFH> Staffordshire Moorlands - UK

[20:34] <Simon-MPFH> U?
[20:34] <Laurenceb> cool
[20:34] <Laurenceb> I used to live in that area
[20:34] <Simon-MPFH> I'm up above Leek
[20:34] <Laurenceb> cool
[20:34] <Laurenceb> Ashbourne :P
[20:34] <Simon-MPFH> Nice
[20:35] <Laurenceb> its a small world :P
[20:35] <Simon-MPFH> You got any projects flying?
[20:35] <Laurenceb> I launched a rogallo wing a few weeks ago
[20:35] <Simon-MPFH> Very sweet - go well?
[20:35] <Laurenceb> but there were problems with the servo driver, probably the low temperatures
[20:35] <Simon-MPFH> Ah
[20:36] <Laurenceb> it was working well on the ground
[20:36] <Simon-MPFH> MMmmmmm
[20:36] <Laurenceb> ie low altitude glide tests
[20:36] <Simon-MPFH> I've flown servos plenty down to -5 but you boys are down to -50!
[20:36] <Laurenceb> http://wiki.ukhas.org.uk/projects:ukhas_glider_project:airframe
[20:37] <Laurenceb> unfortunately I'm really busy with uni work atm
[20:37] <Simon-MPFH> Ha! just read the whole of that site - loads of interesting stuff
[20:38] <Simon-MPFH> Bah! qualifications - ugh
[20:38] <Laurenceb> I'm working on this as my final year project: http://wiki.ukhas.org.uk/projects:aerosol
[20:39] <Laurenceb> but right now I'm trying to finish an assignment on quantum database theory blerg :(
[20:39] <Simon-MPFH> Blimey! A university project that is actually usefull!
[20:39] <Laurenceb> hehe
[20:39] <Simon-MPFH> Ouch! Quantum what?
[20:39] <Simon-MPFH> just load MySQL and be dammned!
[20:39] <Laurenceb> rofl
[20:39] <Simon-MPFH> Which Uni?
[20:39] <Laurenceb> oxford
[20:40] <Simon-MPFH> And they condone this 30Km tomfoolery
[20:40] <Laurenceb> did you say your good with linux?
[20:40] <Simon-MPFH> Mmmm, good would be embarassing
[20:41] <Simon-MPFH> I've done a lot...
[20:41] <Laurenceb> my aerosol project is based on an embedded linux board
[20:41] <Simon-MPFH> Just what I needed to get by (paid)
[20:41] <Laurenceb> I'm using python
[20:41] <Simon-MPFH> I *love* python
[20:42] <Simon-MPFH> Which board?
[20:42] <Laurenceb> ngw100
[20:42] <Laurenceb> its an avr32 eval board
[20:43] <Simon-MPFH> Mmmmm - I was going to order some GumStix but this looks more like my style
[20:44] <Laurenceb> its only £39
[20:44] <Laurenceb> we should meet up some time, your the second person from derbyshire area
[20:44] <Simon-MPFH> I am enjoying the Arduino boards at the moment - soooo much quicker than plugging away in Assembler
[20:44] <Laurenceb> most of the high altitude stuff takes place down in cambridge

[20:45] <Simon-MPFH> I would love to meet up
[20:45] <Laurenceb> arrrg assembler no
[20:45] <Laurenceb> I've been using c and avrs
[20:45] <Simon-MPFH> We sometimes have Linux User Group meetings here (I've got lots of Geek Toys...)
[20:45] <Laurenceb> have you ever been to the RC group at Ashbourne?
[20:45] <Simon-MPFH> Nope - is it good
[20:46] <Laurenceb> I hear it is
[20:46] <Simon-MPFH> I tend to mostly fly gliders with http://lmmga.org
[20:46] <Simon-MPFH> (That site is on the server sat next to me)
[20:46] <Simon-MPFH> I do helecopters (electric) (badly) in my yard
[20:46] <Laurenceb> cool
[20:47] <Simon-MPFH> And power models in the farmers field next door
[20:47] <Laurenceb> I've been meaning to test some glider designs on some hills round that area
[20:47] <Simon-MPFH> LOL - I like first flights
[20:47] <Laurenceb> the hill behind my house isnt big enough :P
[20:47] <Simon-MPFH> (have hoover and dustbin bag)
[20:48] <Laurenceb> I'm aiming to get a thermopile guided glider working
[20:49] <Simon-MPFH> I've gotta go - will be back here during week. simon@titanic.co.uk for your contacts
[20:49] <Laurenceb> just got the amplifier board for the sensors
[20:49] <Laurenceb> cool cya
[20:49] <Simon-MPFH> Mmmm, was reading - using IR heat difference to keep level?
[20:49] <Simon-MPFH> clouds?
[20:49] <Laurenceb> yes
[20:49] <Laurenceb> it doesnt seem to be a big problem
[20:49] <Simon-MPFH> fairynuff
[20:49] <Laurenceb> I thought it would
[20:49] <Laurenceb> but experiments seem to show otherwise
[20:50] <Simon-MPFH> Look forward to reading about it
[20:50] <Simon-MPFH> L8R...

[21:39] <Hiena> Groan... This XFLR5 is a really pain in the back. How i suppose to design an low Reynolds number airframe, if it's became high Re. at 15 km?
[21:40] <Hiena> Not to mention the wasted 2 hours updating my CV. Damned headhunters...

[21:43] <Laurenceb> whats that?
[21:47] Action: Laurenceb checks sourceforge
[21:48] <Laurenceb> wow very nice
[21:53] <Hiena> Yup. But it has a limitation. Lot of limitation. Every time when the flow start to being turbulent, the AOA too high or low, or the Re is over 200000, it's shows middle fingers.
