[13:39] <rjharrison> Hi ed
[13:40] <rjharrison> I'm blaming you again for this one http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=120350791324
[13:57] <gordonjcp> nice scope
[13:58] <gordonjcp> I was going to say, the "drift" problem could only be caused by faulty triggering
[14:03] <SpeedEvil> Err - no
[14:03] <SpeedEvil> it can also be caused by capacitor or leakage problems in the input stages.
[14:11] <gordonjcp> how would that cause a horizontal drift?
[14:14] <gordonjcp> from the description, the trace was rolling through
[14:14] <gordonjcp> which would be a triggering problem not unlike loss of sync in video
[14:17] <SpeedEvil> I was assuming horizontal in the other directio

[23:07] <RocketBoy> Hey jcoxon - still in norway?
[23:13] <jcoxon> yup
[23:13] <jcoxon> here till tues
[23:13] Laurenceb (n=laurence@host86-133-67-102.range86-133.btcentralplus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[23:13] <Laurenceb> hello
[23:15] <jcoxon> RocketBoy, how are things?
[23:16] <RocketBoy> Yeah - OK - I was busy chasing a software contract for FPGA development for a satelite transponder - but thats gone a bit quiet at the mo
[23:17] <RocketBoy> I'm looking forward to some time off starting Wednesday afternoon
[23:18] <RocketBoy> then I'm off until the 5th
[23:19] <jcoxon> so perhaps a balloon launch sometime?
[23:19] <RocketBoy> We had our EARS AGM at the begining of December - no EARS meetings now until March
[23:19] <RocketBoy> yeah
[23:20] <RocketBoy> I have a couple of things to try
[23:20] <jcoxon> i haven't got to much more to fix on peg VI
[23:20] <jcoxon> should be ready to fly after christmas, around new year or so
[23:21] <RocketBoy> excellent
[23:22] <jcoxon> i think rjharrison wants to launch a beacon as well
[23:22] <jcoxon> to test out his implementation of rtty
[23:22] <RocketBoy> yeah he mentioned
[23:23] <RocketBoy> know anything about jailbroken iphones?
[23:24] <RocketBoy> edmoore said you might?
[23:25] <jcoxon> indeed i jailbroke my ipod touch last week
[23:25] <jcoxon> what would you like to know
[23:25] <jcoxon> (goign to put iphonelinux on it when i get back)
[23:25] <jcoxon> going*
[23:26] <RocketBoy> what I'd ideally like is to get a iphone and make a wifi to 3G/GPRS router - a sort of mobile wifi hotspot
[23:26] <RocketBoy> I'm told that there was a ipone ap for that - but it was withdrwan
[23:26] <jcoxon> yeah they are pretty damn strict about that
[23:27] <RocketBoy> so I was exploring more creative routes
[23:27] <jcoxon> :-)
[23:27] <RocketBoy> yeah its all to do with restrictions on "unlimited" broadband access
[23:28] <RocketBoy> the sad thing is I'd happlily pay for the extra broadband usage - I just don't want a USB dongle
[23:29] <jcoxon> basically you are looking for 'tethering'
[23:29] <RocketBoy> humm - I'll look that uo
[23:30] <jcoxon> but perhaps on a larger scale then just tethering to one laptop
[23:30] <jcoxon> http://cre.ations.net/blog/post/how-to-tether-your-iphone-3g-and-browse-the-web-using-your-3g-co
[23:32] <jcoxon> but then there are other options
[23:32] <jcoxon> i often use bluetooth and my nokia
[23:34] <RocketBoy> yep tethering is it - brings up lots of jailbreak instructions
[23:35] <jcoxon> jailbreaking is pretty easy
[23:35] <RocketBoy> Yah I'd use bluetooth too except my laptop only has wifi :-(
[23:35] <jcoxon> however
[23:35] <jcoxon> i think we could make cooler, cheaper options
[23:36] <jcoxon> well, all we need is a gprs modem/3g modem and wifi
[23:36] <jcoxon> hehe
[23:36] <RocketBoy> ???????
[23:36] <jcoxon> zeusbot is always listening
[23:37] <jcoxon> you can add it
[23:37] <jcoxon> if you want
[23:39] <RocketBoy> anyroad U were saying about gprs modem/3g modem and wifi
[23:39] <jcoxon> so how about a wireless route running linux + a broadband modem
[23:39] <jcoxon> and batteries
[23:39] <RocketBoy> what i was tinking of is a mobile router 4 use at launches
[23:39] <jcoxon> well there are cheap routers with usb ports
[23:40] <jcoxon> we could then attach a 3g modem
[23:40] <RocketBoy> yep that would do it
[23:40] <jcoxon> and have it all working happily
[23:40] <jcoxon> would be cheaper then an iphone
[23:40] <jcoxon> and potentially more customisable
[23:40] <RocketBoy> (yeh but I want an ipone as well)
[23:40] <jcoxon> well thats a different matter
[23:41] <natrium42> RocketBoy, PDAnet is what you want
[23:41] <natrium42> after you jailbreak
[23:41] <RocketBoy> but happy to separete requiremnets
[23:43] <RocketBoy> yeah thanks natrium42 that seems to be what I want
[23:44] <natrium42> new version isn't free anymore
[23:44] <natrium42> but it's worth it
[23:44] <natrium42> (or you can get older version of pdanet and live with its bugs)
[23:45] <RocketBoy> sounds like fun
[23:48] <RocketBoy> I'll think about jcoxons idea too - a router + USB dongle
[23:48] Action: natrium42 pokes RocketBoy
[23:48] <RocketBoy> sounds like more work getting a driver
[23:49] <RocketBoy> ah yes
[23:49] <jcoxon> RocketBoy, http://wiki.openwrt.org/CompleteTableOfHardware
[23:49] <jcoxon> so RocketBoy anyone with something in the USB section
[23:49] <jcoxon> then its a matter of connecting a dongle
[23:50] <jcoxon> and giving it some power
