[21:59] <SpeedEvil> hey
[22:00] <fuzzylugnuts> whats up?
[22:00] <SpeedEvil> Not much.
[22:00] <SpeedEvil> More moaning about weather.
[22:00] <fuzzylugnuts> hah
[22:00] <fuzzylugnuts> speaking of, I got the weatherboard from sparkfun today
[22:03] <SpeedEvil> what's that?
[22:07] <fuzzylugnuts> sorry, was on the phone
[22:08] <fuzzylugnuts> its a little board that measures the humidity, temperature, ambient light level, and pressure and then spits out a csv string of the readings
[22:11] <SpeedEvil> Hmm.
[22:11] <SpeedEvil> Windspeed'd be handy
[22:11] <fuzzylugnuts> Yeah
[22:12] <fuzzylugnuts> it would be nice for sending up on a balloon though
[22:12] <fuzzylugnuts> you can connect via usb or serial
[22:14] <SpeedEvil> Need a long USB wire.
[22:14] Action: SpeedEvil ponders a 30Km wire with USB hubs every 5m.
[22:14] <natrium42> long USB wire is long

[22:22] <roberto> Guten Abend alle miteinander / Good evening folks :-)
[22:22] <fuzzylugnuts> Hello
[22:24] <Laurenceb> anyone know how to convert from WGS-84 to msl altitude?
[22:25] <SpeedEvil> With complexity!
[22:26] <SpeedEvil> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WGS84
[22:26] <SpeedEvil> Do you care about actual sea levels?
[22:27] <SpeedEvil> And GPSs emit the figure anyway.
[22:27] <Laurenceb> I want to use getamap to test my gps
[22:27] <Laurenceb> and that uses ardinance survey=msl
[22:27] <Laurenceb> I have wgs-84 from my gps
[22:27] <Laurenceb> so it needs to be converted

[22:43] <Laurenceb> done :P
[22:45] <Laurenceb> approx 6 meters off
[22:46] <Laurenceb> not too bad, I picked up 7 sats
[22:47] <SpeedEvil> how long did you leave it to lock for?
[22:47] <SpeedEvil> Or rather - how long was it locked for before.
[22:47] <Laurenceb> 5 minutes about
[22:47] <Laurenceb> lassen iq
[22:48] <SpeedEvil> 6m horizontal?
[22:48] <SpeedEvil> And what ref?
[22:48] EI5GTB__ (n=Paul@78.16.146.150) left irc: Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)
[22:48] <Laurenceb> thats vertical
[22:49] <SpeedEvil> vertical accuracy tends to be sucky
[22:49] <Laurenceb> horizontal... I forgot where I was setting :P
[22:49] <Laurenceb> on the kerb somewhere
[22:50] <Laurenceb> Its pretty impressive, 7m vertical is better than sirf2
[22:51] <Laurenceb> *6
[22:52] <SpeedEvil> Well.
[22:52] <SpeedEvil> Compare like with like.
[22:52] <Laurenceb> yeah it depends on sat configuration
[22:52] <SpeedEvil> Place it somewhere where it's got a signal, and log for a couple of days.

[23:03] <Laurenceb> I'm not convinced by that
[23:05] <Laurenceb> the position solution coverges in a few iterations
[23:15] <Laurenceb> even if its kalman filtered with the doppler shift data, what was happening >10 seconds or so ago will make no difference
