[22:39] <prpplague> natrium42: greetings
[22:40] <natrium42> hi
[22:42] <prpplague> actually was just looking at your pages
[23:10] <natrium42> anything interesting? :D
[23:14] <prpplague> natrium42: just thinking out i could replicate your electronics using a hammer board or nail board
[23:14] <prpplague> i/how
[23:15] <natrium42> ah
[23:17] <prpplague> we started shipping the nail this month, so i've been looking for some cool projects
[23:18] <natrium42> what's the url for nail?
[23:19] <prpplague> http://www.elinux.org/Nail_Board http://www.linuxdevices.com/news/NS6679724842.html
[23:19] <prpplague> http://www.tincantools.com/product.php?productid=16143&cat=0&page=1&featured
[23:20] <natrium42> cool, thanks
[23:22] <natrium42> perhaps we should use a hammer board for the transatlantic mission
[23:22] <natrium42> connect sat phone to serial, camera to usb
[23:22] <natrium42> are there multiple serial ports?
[23:23] <natrium42> one would be needed for gps/radio
[23:23] <natrium42> radio could use any other serial interface, though
[23:24] <natrium42> prpplague, would be a nice publicity stunt
[23:25] <prpplague> natrium42: yea the hammer has two uarts and we do support several different uarts via spi chipsets if you need more
[23:26] <prpplague> natrium42: the max3100 is a standard uart via a spi interface
[23:26] <prpplague> natrium42: so you could techincally add another 4 or 5 uarts if you wanted to
[23:26] <natrium42> yah, i have seen it
[23:26] <natrium42> true
[23:26] <natrium42> don't really need that many, 2 should be enough
[23:27] <prpplague> this project in the planning stages?
[23:27] <akawaka> prpplague: nice board, the nail
[23:27] <prpplague> akawaka: thanks, kinda proud of it
[23:28] <natrium42> prpplague, yes
[23:28] <prpplague> cool
[23:29] <prpplague> give me a shout when you are ready to start doing the electronics, i'll talk to the boss and see if i can swing you an eval kit
[23:33] <natrium42> ok
[23:33] <prpplague> when do you think you will be doing this project?
[23:34] <natrium42> the flight itself will be sometime in winter
[23:34] <natrium42> because of favourable winds
[23:35] <prpplague> ahh
[23:36] <natrium42> i already got the satellite phone for $2300
[23:36] <prpplague> wow
[23:36] <natrium42> i was planning to use my gumstix
[23:36] <prpplague> gotta head home, catch you tomorrow?
[23:36] <natrium42> but hammer is also fine, i just have to investigate further when i have time
[23:36] <prpplague> i'm pretty sure i can swing you a hammer
[23:36] <natrium42> ok, see ya later
[23:36] <prpplague> we'll talk some more !
[23:37] <natrium42> sure thing
[23:37] <prpplague> later
