[00:51] <Kornholijo> lol
[00:58] <Kornholijo> fergusnoble: owned =o
[01:24] <Laurenceb> omg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqbKwSE0y5w
[01:24] <Laurenceb> so wrong
[01:24] <Laurenceb> only in america
[01:26] <Laurenceb> guess I'll never understand the us
[01:47] <Laurenceb> I like sparkfuns giant led thingy
[01:47] <Laurenceb> need some photos
[01:55] <Laurenceb> but why are they selling wirestrippers.... :P
[02:21] <Laurenceb> akawaka: hows the radio going?
[02:48] <fergusnoble> god java is mind numming
[02:48] <fergusnoble> *numbing
[02:53] <Laurenceb> what are you working on?
[02:53] <fergusnoble> "a portfolio of practical work"
[02:53] <Laurenceb> just learning?
[02:53] <Laurenceb> cool
[02:53] <fergusnoble> in other words a whole series of pointless and boring exerciese
[02:53] <Laurenceb> sounds like the regular stuff
[02:54] <Laurenceb> I really need to sleep :-/
[02:54] <Laurenceb> cya
[02:54] <fergusnoble> just coded a mandlebrot set renderer and an http file downloader though
[02:54] <fergusnoble> night
[02:54] <Laurenceb> nice
[02:54] <fergusnoble> which was about as good as the exercises get
[02:54] <fergusnoble> most are just comparing sorting algos
[02:55] <Laurenceb> sounds pretty boring
[02:55] <Laurenceb> anyway, cya
[02:55] <akawaka> Laurenceb: waiting for parts to arrive
[02:55] <fergusnoble> gdnight

[17:36] <fnoble> edmoore: you here?
[17:36] <edmoore> yes but not for much longer
[17:36] <fnoble> digikey?!
[17:36] <edmoore> it takes more than 24 hours!
[17:37] <fnoble> oh thought it was a couple days ago
[17:37] <edmoore> nope
[17:37] <fnoble> ah well
[17:38] <edmoore> you like integration don't you
[17:39] <edmoore> fnoble: ping pong exam help plong
[17:39] <fnoble> erm, as in maths integration?
[17:39] <fnoble> as much as the next guy
[17:40] <edmoore> you said once you had it drummed into you
[17:40] <fnoble> i guess so
[17:40] <fnoble> i also have mathematica :)
[17:40] <fnoble> whats the integral
[17:40] <edmoore> exp( -x^2 / 2) dx
[17:41] <edmoore> between - and + inf
[17:41] <fnoble> thats pi/2 sqrt(2) i think
[17:41] <edmoore> I make it root (2*pi) but that's using some special tricks i'm not conviced of
[17:41] <edmoore> hmm, i just make it root 2 * pi
[17:42] <fnoble> ok, well thats off the top of my head, but its something like that
[17:42] <edmoore> what method do you use to arrive that pi over 2 root 2?
[17:42] <fnoble> you do it using some trick with converting to polars and doing it as a double integral
[17:42] <edmoore> ok well I'll press on
[17:42] <edmoore> yes, that's what I've done
[17:42] <fnoble> itll be on the web, ill look
[17:42] <fnoble> ok
[17:42] <edmoore> but want to be sure before i plough on with the next bit which is scary
[17:43] <fnoble> ok
[17:43] <edmoore> fourier transform of the laplacian of the gaussian
[17:43] <fnoble> ill ask mathematica
[17:43] <edmoore> cool
[17:43] <fnoble> sqrt(2pi) is correct
[17:44] <edmoore> yey! ok onwards christian soldiers
[17:44] <edmoore> ty
[17:45] <fnoble> ok, java is calling again :( see you later
