[07:50] <jcoxon> hey icez
[07:51] <edmoore> jcoxon: morning
[07:52] <jcoxon> have you guys seen the web tablet thing on hackaday?
[07:54] <edmoore> just did
[07:54] <edmoore> don't hurry me through my morning rss digest!
[07:54] <jcoxon> while the exact tech they want isn't possible
[07:55] <jcoxon> i still think something is possible
[07:58] <edmoore> newscientist space blog has a nice summary of all the problems with orion development
[07:58] <icez> i found a cool 2d physics simulator called phun
[07:59] <icez> not perfect but still
[08:02] <jcoxon> :-)
[08:07] <jcoxon> right time to get ready for my exam
[08:07] <jcoxon> cya guys

[17:15] <jcoxon> hey natrium42
[17:15] <natrium42> hi
[17:16] <jcoxon> hows things?
[17:16] <natrium42> pretty good, how are you?
[17:16] <jcoxon> not bad thanks
[17:16] <jcoxon> had an exam this morning
[17:17] <jcoxon> which went well
[17:17] <natrium42> cool
[17:17] <natrium42> any other exams left?
[17:17] <jcoxon> yeah written exams on 4th/5th august
[17:18] <natrium42> and then?
[17:18] <jcoxon> thats it for the year
[17:18] <natrium42> neat, so some time for projects? :P
[17:19] <jcoxon> exactly :-)
[17:19] <jcoxon> been playing with this goliath board
[17:19] <jcoxon> got gsm and radio working nicely
[17:20] <natrium42> which server did ukhas move to, btw?
[17:20] <jcoxon> not sure, phatmonkeys domain
[17:20] <natrium42> is it shared?
[17:20] <jcoxon> its co-located
[17:21] <jcoxon> thats all i know - need to get on to him about having a bit of access as i'm meant to be running it i think
[17:22] <natrium42> k
[17:22] <jcoxon> why do you ask?
[17:22] <natrium42> i was just going to suggest copying my tracker to ukhas server, if you would like
[17:23] <natrium42> (but i don't mind you using it on mine)
[17:23] <natrium42> just gives you better access if you want to change anything
[17:23] <jcoxon> hehe, i don't trust myself not to break it :-p
[17:23] <jcoxon> lets see how my next launch goes with gsm and radio position uploads
[17:23] <natrium42> k
[17:24] <natrium42> it's not much code -- would be hard to break
[17:24] <jcoxon> fair enough
[17:27] <natrium42> the icarus payload looks nice
[17:28] <natrium42> tiltable camera :)
[17:28] <jcoxon> yeah it does
[17:28] <jcoxon> found it after they added links to the wiki
[17:28] <natrium42> yeah, i just found it
[17:31] <natrium42> oh
[17:31] <natrium42> i now remember where i heard that name
[17:32] Action: natrium42 sent robert harrison to ukhas :)
[17:32] <jcoxon> hehe
[17:32] <jcoxon> good work

[17:39] <natrium42> jcoxon, ooh, the sped up video from fhalp3 is nice
[17:41] <jcoxon> dougs videos? yeah they are good
[17:42] <jcoxon> i was modeling hte new balloon accessory range
[17:42] <jcoxon> nasa baseball cap, aviator sunglasses and safety goggle
[17:42] <jcoxon> goggles
[17:43] <natrium42> haha
[17:44] <natrium42> too bad you don't know how high it got
[17:44] <jcoxon> i reckon 12,000m
[17:44] <jcoxon> not high
[17:45] <jcoxon> 2 balloons like that isn't a good way
[17:46] <natrium42> did they touch the ropes in flight?
[17:47] <natrium42> that's my main concern with two balloons
[17:47] <natrium42> the envelope seems pretty fragile
[17:47] <jcoxon> i think the problem was that they managed to get into an oscilation system
[17:48] <jcoxon> i think 2 balloons are possible, central line up toa junction and then 2 seperate lines (like a Y)
[17:48] <natrium42> ah
[17:48] <jcoxon> we used a ring so that we could release one balloon first
[17:48] <natrium42> any idea how to solve that?
[17:48] <jcoxon> lots of line between the balloons
[17:49] <jcoxon> not too much difference between the balloons?
[17:49] <jcoxon> as in lift wise
[17:49] <natrium42> would be nice to have one of the balloons above the other
[17:49] <natrium42> but not sure how to attach it to the top of the lower balloon
[17:50] <jcoxon> some old balloons actually have loops
[17:50] <jcoxon> at the top
[17:50] <natrium42> yah, the military sounding balloons do
[17:50] <jcoxon> but i doubt that would be very strong

[23:39] <jcoxon> though edmoore is missing it
[23:40] <natrium42> how could he!
[23:40] <jcoxon> hes got work
[23:40] <jcoxon> its hard to be working on the descent system for the mars lander
[23:43] <natrium42> aah, that's awesome
[23:43] <natrium42> (and more important)
[23:43] <jcoxon> might try and listen in tomorrow from london
