[00:26] <Laurenceb_> nice
[00:26] <Laurenceb_> hmm could I put an arduino bootloader on my avr?
[00:26] <Laurenceb_> how do you upload new code to arduino
[00:28] <edmoore> pass
[00:33] <jcoxon> ouch about the Coxon kilometre
[00:33] <jcoxon> its only beacon this weekend
[00:33] <jcoxon> no sstv
[00:33] <edmoore> it's an honour!
[00:33] <jcoxon> hmmm

[10:24] <edmoore> morning all
[10:24] <edmoore> jcoxon: how is she?
[10:27] <SpeedEvil> jcoxon: in a bad way? (flames)
[10:31] <gordonjcp> zomg
[10:31] <gordonjcp> AO-7 pass
[10:31] <gordonjcp> masses off ssb
[10:31] <gordonjcp> s/off/of
[10:31] <SpeedEvil> :)
[10:31] <gordonjcp> loads of people talking on a satellite damn near as old as I am
[10:31] <gordonjcp> fuck my old boots
[10:33] <jcoxon> edmoore, tis dead - its just not charging
[10:33] <jcoxon> oh well
[10:34] <jcoxon> have to get a new one
[10:34] <SpeedEvil> have you checke bt volts?
[10:34] <SpeedEvil> bat
[10:34] <SpeedEvil> If it's undervolted, it may not charge
[10:34] <edmoore> jcoxon: which bit is dead?
[10:34] <jcoxon> the bat is a little undercharged
[10:35] <jcoxon> but the charger itself is a sparkfun one and one of the traces has come up
[10:36] <edmoore> hrm
[10:36] <edmoore> can also sod it and unleash the energizers
[10:36] <jcoxon> :-D
[10:36] <jcoxon> its all sorted now
[10:36] <jcoxon> just no LiPo
[10:36] <jcoxon> that said i've got a Li-ion rechargable from a camera
[10:37] <jcoxon> that would work well - if i carefully solder to it
[10:37] <edmoore> i got only 4 shocks off the powershot this time
[10:37] <edmoore> I think that's a record for me
[10:37] <SpeedEvil> rubber gloves!
[10:37] <edmoore> i'd rather go commando
[10:38] <SpeedEvil> If that makes a difference to getting shocks, you're DOING IT WRONG.
[10:38] <SpeedEvil> :)
[10:39] <edmoore> :)
[10:40] <edmoore> so, young man. How did you come to have this large screwdriver up there?
[10:40] <edmoore> .... I, er, um, was, er, taking apart a camera
[10:40] <edmoore> I've not heard that one before
[10:43] <edmoore> jcoxon: you are a lucky man, judging by the 300mb prediction
[10:43] <jcoxon> edmoore, don't come to me with that medical issue!
[10:45] <edmoore> jcoxon: have you come across the avr webserver? I'd have thought you'd love it
[10:48] <jcoxon> i've seen it
[10:48] <jcoxon> its a bit AVR for me
[10:48] <edmoore> :)
[10:48] <jcoxon> more laurence's sort of thing
[10:48] <edmoore> you know badger2 will be able to run linux?
[10:48] <jcoxon> that makes me happ
[10:48] <jcoxon> y
[10:49] <jcoxon> i'm so close to getting this damn script working on my phone
[10:49] <jcoxon> so close
[10:49] <edmoore> how far?
[10:49] <jcoxon> i've got POST working but not GET working
[10:49] <jcoxon> so can't upload to the tracker
[10:53] <jcoxon> hmmm perhaps i could change the tracker to POST
[11:11] <jcoxon> amazing
[11:11] <jcoxon> got it working
[11:11] <edmoore> awesome
[11:13] <jcoxon> thats the chase car sorted :-p
[11:14] <gordonjcp> oh, that's right, you're launching aren't you?
[11:14] <jcoxon> if all goes to plan, yeah tomorrow
[11:15] <jcoxon> doing an endurance test with this new battery
[11:18] <edmoore> can we use tracker for sunday next?
[11:19] <jcoxon> which tracker
[11:19] <jcoxon> ?
[11:21] <edmoore> ukhas
[11:21] <jcoxon> as in the one that i do from my radio?
[11:21] <edmoore> sort of yes :)
[11:22] <jcoxon> ummmm yes/no
[11:22] <jcoxon> i've got my foundation exam
[11:22] <edmoore> oooh
[11:22] <jcoxon> but i'm happy to try and set up auto tracker
[11:22] <jcoxon> if someone is happy to vnc into my laptop
[11:23] <jcoxon> i'll persuade the hams i'm with to listen in before the exam as we still have a few more things to cover
[11:23] <edmoore> that'd be cool
[11:24] <edmoore> i think we're doing a morning launch
[11:24] <edmoore> then a rocket from EARS
[11:25] <jcoxon> okay
[11:25] <jcoxon> i'm really annoyed i can't track it myself
[11:25] <jcoxon> i've got my altitude dial all set up
[11:26] <edmoore> :)
[11:26] <edmoore> url sneak preview?
[11:26] <jcoxon> oh, not that altitude dial
[11:27] <jcoxon> my real one
[11:27] <edmoore> oh! ok
[11:27] <jcoxon> that said thats also cool
[11:30] <jcoxon> as in this one:
[11:30] <jcoxon> http://flickr.com/photos/jcoxon77/2892134080/
[11:31] <edmoore> ha james that's awesome
[11:31] <edmoore> you're like a steampunk hero
[11:31] <edmoore> you should have a webcam instead of tracker - showing maybe that for altitude and etech-a-sketch for the path
[11:31] <edmoore> or something :)
[11:33] <jcoxon> haha
[11:33] <jcoxon> i reckon we need to install it into the ukhas landy
[11:34] <jcoxon> i've got it all configered to work with my code
[11:35] <jcoxon> need some more dials
[11:35] <jcoxon> i reckon a speed dial would be good
[11:35] <jcoxon> i got the dial from portobello road
[11:35] <jcoxon> there were a few other dials
[11:36] <jcoxon> right i'll bbl
[11:36] <edmoore> speed would be good, yeah
[11:36] <edmoore> could mill up a nice ali panel for them all
[11:36] <jcoxon> :-D
[11:36] <jcoxon> its actualy from a WWII bombing system
[11:37] <jcoxon> that used radio to calculate altitude
[11:38] <jcoxon> bbl
[11:38] <edmoore> ok cya
[11:48] <edmoore> jcoxon
[11:48] <edmoore> on a flickr search for 'high altitude balloon' you are top
[11:48] <edmoore> and I am 4th
[11:48] <edmoore> you're going down.
[12:14] <jcoxon> haha
[12:14] <jcoxon> thats purely due to tagging
[12:15] <jcoxon> also that picture has a ridiculous amount of views
[12:16] <jcoxon> oh i'm back
[12:18] <edmoore> i guessed

[12:20] <Xenion> Guten Morgen :-) / Good Morning
[12:20] <jcoxon> hey Xenion
[12:21] <edmoore> which german speaking timezone allows it to be morning?
[12:21] <Xenion> hm edmoore i guess no one :D
[12:21] <jcoxon> haha
[12:21] <edmoore> :)
[12:22] <edmoore> you know they speak welsh in patagonia?
[12:22] <jcoxon> maybe there was some lag
[12:22] <jcoxon> a lot of lag
[12:25] <jcoxon> edmoore, that is an interesting fact
[12:25] <edmoore> indeed
[12:26] <edmoore> ok bll
