[20:21] <jcoxon> hey phatmonke
[20:22] <jcoxon> phatmonkey
[20:23] <jcoxon> how the exams?
[20:25] <phatmonkey> not too bad
[20:25] <phatmonkey> had physics practical on monday which I didn't really revise for... it showed
[20:26] <phatmonkey> mechanics retake tomorrow which should be easy
[20:26] <jcoxon> cool cool
[20:29] <jcoxon> how more are left?
[20:30] <phatmonkey> errm
[20:30] <phatmonkey> 9
[20:30] <phatmonkey> about a month's worth
[20:32] <jcoxon> oh okay
[20:32] <jcoxon> so just beginning

[21:18] <akawaka> what are peoples opinions on molex connectors?
[21:24] <jcoxon> depends what for
[21:24] <jcoxon> they are pretty good, though under stress not so good
[21:24] <akawaka> thinking power connections for all the components
[21:25] <jcoxon> connectors are a difficult one
[21:25] <jcoxon> i'm not sure they are reliable enough for power connectors
[21:26] <akawaka> yeah, i'm think about the standard pc ones
[21:26] <jcoxon> with the 4 pins?
[21:26] <akawaka> yeah
[21:26] <jcoxon> yeah they are pretty good
[21:27] <rcaron> the problem is the gender on the drive side
[21:27] <akawaka> ?
[21:27] <rcaron> when they're just attached to cables for extensions/splitters they're quite flimsy
[21:27] <rcaron> the pins wobble
[21:27] <Laurenceb> they seem to be ok it you dont damage them
[21:27] <rcaron> well i am assuming you aren'
[21:27] <akawaka> would like to use a standard power connector for all our components
[21:27] <Laurenceb> which isnt that hard if they get knocked about
[21:27] <rcaron> t canibalizing drives to hook these all up
[21:28] <rcaron> so you get the "Y splitters" that has both genders
[21:28] <akawaka> yeah
[21:28] <rcaron> hook one gender to your power source, the other to your device
[21:28] fergusnoble (n=fnoblef@fn217.quns.cam.ac.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[21:28] <rcaron> one of those sides is going to have the wobbly pins
[21:29] <rcaron> i personally don't reccomend them. are you looking for something that's actually four conductor?
[21:29] <rcaron> or will two suffice?
[21:29] <akawaka> it would be nice to be able to have 12v and 5v
[21:30] <rcaron> ok. i was going to suggest powerpoles, but those are just two conductor
[21:30] Simon-MPFH (n=simon@phantom.mpfh.co.uk) left irc: "Leaving"
[21:30] <akawaka> also convienient to be able to just hook up to a pc power supply while testing
[21:32] <Laurenceb> I've only once had problems with molex
[21:32] <Laurenceb> that was a manged connector
[21:33] <rcaron> well, if want to go that route i suggest finding a tash of busted up CD-ROMs and desoldering/dremmeling those connectors off
[21:33] <rcaron> they are much, much sturdier
[21:33] <rcaron> *stash
[21:33] <akawaka> anyone know if there is a standard name for them?
[21:33] <rcaron> pc molex?

[21:50] Action: jcoxon has got his speech recognition working
[21:52] <Laurenceb> wtf
[21:52] <Laurenceb> you wrote it yourseof?
[21:52] <jcoxon> nah
[21:52] <jcoxon> its built into OS X
[21:52] <Laurenceb> was going to say that would be impresive :P
[21:52] <jcoxon> but i added a few more commands
[21:52] <Laurenceb> cool
[21:52] <jcoxon> Laurenceb, me writing code that works! pah
[21:53] <Laurenceb> hehe
[21:53] <jcoxon> it actually works okay
[21:53] <jcoxon> which is suprising
[21:53] <Laurenceb> yes, I remember the post office has speech recognition on their phones
[21:54] <Laurenceb> I tried to confuse it and its pretty impressive
[21:54] <jcoxon> i only use mine for commands
[21:54] <jcoxon> like opening up websites
[21:54] <jcoxon> and changing tabs
[22:11] <Laurenceb> you can be even more lazy
[22:11] <Laurenceb> not even a mouse to move :P
