[15:36] <jcoxon> afternoon all
[15:38] <prpplague> greetings
[15:38] <jcoxon> hey prpplague hows things?

[15:39] <prpplague> jcoxon: good good, doing alot of driver dev right now
[15:40] <prpplague> jcoxon: you?
[15:40] <jcoxon> oh cool, linux driver dev?
[15:40] <jcoxon> yeah i'm not bad thanks, beginning to revise for my exams which are in about a month
[15:40] <prpplague> yea, got a pda platform soon to be released, finishing up some of the support stuff
[15:40] <jcoxon> high altitude wise i'm investigating packet radio on linux, lots of fun cross compiling
[15:41] <prpplague> jcoxon: indeed, cross compiling can be sooo much fun
[15:41] <jcoxon> getting to grips with OpenEmbedded
[15:42] <jcoxon> no necessarily the most logical system (well i haven't got my head totally around it)
[15:42] <prpplague> jcoxon: yea, OE has a steep learning curve
[15:42] <jcoxon> not*
[15:44] <jcoxon> something to work on the weekends :-)
[15:45] <prpplague> jcoxon: i ran across a song on one of the net radio stations i listen too
[15:46] <prpplague> jcoxon: they had what sounded like RTTY in the song
[15:46] <jcoxon> haha, listening to RTTY makes me go mad
[15:46] <jcoxon> actually i think morse is worse
[15:46] <prpplague> jcoxon: just for kicks i tried to decode it, hehe, it spelled out the name of the band
[15:47] <jcoxon> hehe

[15:48] <jcoxon> prpplague, were you working on a balloon payload (my memory is failing me)?
[15:49] <prpplague> jcoxon: only in my mind, its something i'd like to do, but i have neither the time nor the money to do it
[15:49] <jcoxon> know the feeling

[19:08] <prpplague> edmoore: greetings
[19:13] <edmoore> prpplague: hello
[19:13] <edmoore> how's tricks?
[19:13] <prpplague> edmoore: not too bad
[19:14] MetaMorfoziS (n=avr@53d83cc0.adsl.enternet.hu) left irc: "Connectshun reset by mah bukkit."
[19:15] <edmoore> I bought a sat-nav today for ballooning escapades, among other things
[19:16] <edmoore> it does all sorts of whizz-bang stuff which I didn't realise - hands free telephony, sends texts, screams loudly at me whenever a speed camera is approaching, controls my ipod and feeds it over fm to my car radio - all sorts
[19:16] <edmoore> I'm quite impressed
[19:16] <edmoore> and apparently it's linux
[19:17] <prpplague> edmoore: speed camera?
[19:17] RocketBoy (n=grunge@217.47.75.27) joined #highaltitude.
[19:18] <edmoore> the cameras with radar on the side of the road
[19:18] <edmoore> that catch you speeding
[19:18] <prpplague> edmoore: ahh
[19:19] <edmoore> the uk is full of them
[19:19] <prpplague> edmoore: i've only heard of traffic light cameras so far in the US
[19:19] <edmoore> give it time... :)
[19:19] <prpplague> indeed
[19:20] <edmoore> hows work and electronics?
[19:21] <prpplague> edmoore: work not so good, got lots PHB's in charge at momment, homebrew stuff doing well
[19:21] <edmoore> sounds about right :)
[19:22] <prpplague> edmoore: trying to finish up a pda for release - http://www.elinux.org/M8050
[19:22] <prpplague> edmoore: and no it doesn't run windows ce, thats just a rendering
[19:22] <edmoore> I knew it wouldn't!
[19:23] <edmoore> pdas could be perfect for ballooning
[19:23] <edmoore> well, very nifty anyway
[19:24] <prpplague> edmoore: your projects going well i hope?
[19:24] <edmoore> well lots of money seems to be going out the door for stuff
[19:24] <edmoore> and carbon fibre bits and bobs keep appearing
[19:25] <edmoore> we've got a new flight computer just about finished... so I think we're making progress towards getting the rocket flying
[19:26] <edmoore> there are 3 people working on it full time over summer, and I'm working on it when I can, though I have a summer job
[19:26] MetaMorfoziS (n=avr@53d83cc0.adsl.enternet.hu) joined #highaltitude.
[19:28] <prpplague> edmoore: nice
[19:29] <prpplague> edmoore: what are you using for the flight computer?
[19:29] <edmoore> prpplague: an arm7 (the nxp lpc2148)
[19:29] <edmoore> hold on, will show you
[19:29] <prpplague> edmoore: ahh interesting
[19:30] <edmoore> we have a newer one now being made - it's got some more inertial sensors, uses a micro sd, and has a radio and battery monitoring/charging circuit. but this is v1: http://www.flickr.com/photos/25036435@N00/2501001643/
[19:31] <edmoore> and on the other side: http://www.flickr.com/photos/25036435@N00/2501001535/in/photostream/
[19:31] <edmoore> bottom side has gps, gsm modem, jtag and i/o
[19:32] <edmoore> top side has horrendous bodge because we got the usb signals the wrong way round

[19:37] <prpplague> edmoore: really nice looking board
[19:38] <edmoore> thanks - it's got it's fair share of issues, but I hope we've caught most of them in this current revision
