[00:00] <edmoore> natrium42: it cuts out every 1 or 2kb, it seems
[00:00] <edmoore> they're obviously onto me!
[00:00] <edmoore> have to keep reconnecting to ssh
[00:03] <natrium42> aah, maybe it's on my side?
[00:05] <edmoore> no, it's been happening with normal ssh
[00:05] <edmoore> when i was on lynx
[00:05] <edmoore> i think it's the ISP
[00:06] <natrium42> :S
[00:09] <edmoore> i don't spose someone could do me a big favour?
[00:13] <SpeedEvil> ?
[00:14] <SpeedEvil> This depends.
[00:14] <SpeedEvil> Does it invovle me having to get out of bed.
[00:17] <edmoore> no :)
[00:17] <edmoore> it was to spend litterally no more than 20 seconds looking for a free wireless hotspot in Chichester, West Sussex
[00:18] <edmoore> on the web
[00:18] <SpeedEvil> k
[00:18] <edmoore> awesome thanks
[00:18] <Laurenceb> cya all

[00:26] <SpeedEvil> Ok. It seems that the vast majority of free wifi points I can find are BT-FON nodes. Which are BT broadband users, as FON has made it easy for them to participate.
[00:26] <SpeedEvil> are you bt total broadband?
[00:27] <edmoore> nope
[00:27] <SpeedEvil> 9 quid/day then
[00:27] Action: SpeedEvil looks
[00:27] <edmoore> eeeek
[00:27] <SpeedEvil> otoh - there are lots of them
[00:27] <edmoore> what about starbucks or somewhere generic like that?
[00:27] <edmoore> ok not to worry, I will just try some obvious places
[00:27] <edmoore> thanks for looking!
[00:28] <SpeedEvil> ah
[00:28] <SpeedEvil> postcode?
[00:30] <SpeedEvil> pulborough?
[00:32] <edmoore> uhuh
[00:32] <SpeedEvil> The white swan, halfway bridge inn, woodstock house, woodacre, the angel hotel, the burlington hotel, the chequer in.
[00:32] <SpeedEvil> nn
[00:33] <edmoore> woodstock house
[00:33] <SpeedEvil> 41 High Street
[00:33] <SpeedEvil> Steyning, BN44 3RE
[00:33] <edmoore> is the source of this the product of war driving?
[00:33] <edmoore> oh ok
[00:33] <edmoore> because I live in a house called woodstock which has open wifi
[00:33] <SpeedEvil> no - people advertising free wifi in their establishments
[00:33] <edmoore> oh grand
[00:33] <edmoore> thanks
[00:33] <edmoore> good list
[00:34] <edmoore> white swan is nice and easy
[00:34] <SpeedEvil> also - all macdonalds reportedly
[00:35] <SpeedEvil> good luck.
[00:35] <edmoore> thanks!
[00:35] <edmoore> that's a big help

[08:29] <natrium42> good nite
[08:29] <natrium42> 3:30am here :P

[08:30] <Xenion> i got up a 6am and was doing sport till 9 am :D
[08:31] <natrium42> whoa
[08:31] <natrium42> that's very early for me
[08:31] <natrium42> how old are you?
[08:31] <Xenion> natrium42, me 2
[08:32] <Xenion> http://events.ccc.de/congress/2008/wiki/Fahrplan <- maybe some of you is interested, nearly all ppresentations are in englisch, and everything is being live streamed to the internet
[08:32] <Xenion> i watch it every year over the web
[08:32] <natrium42> i hear that sleep patterns change with age
[08:32] <Xenion> this year there some interesting emebedded HW dev. topics :)
[08:32] <Xenion> natrium42, 22
[08:32] <Xenion> and you ?
[08:32] <natrium42> ooh, ccc starts today?

[08:33] <Xenion> i'ts just 15 minutes away but ... i like to watch it @home .. i record multiple presentations and watch them one by one
[08:33] <Xenion> natrium42, in 2 weeks you can download the mkv h264 files ... but watching it live is more "cool"
[08:33] <Xenion> :D
[08:34] <natrium42> hehe
[08:34] <natrium42> anyway, nite
[08:34] Action: natrium42 Zzzzz

[09:16] <jcoxon> morning
[09:26] <rjharrison> mornig sir
[09:26] <rjharrison> Been working on the listener this morning
[09:26] <rjharrison> Looking goo
[09:26] <rjharrison> good
[09:26] <rjharrison> Just ploting the track to do
[09:27] <rjharrison> this looks a little weird http://www.pegasushabproject.org.uk/wiki/doku.php/missions:pegasusvilog
[09:27] <rjharrison> Are there some fields missing?
[09:28] <rjharrison> looks like bearing on the end and ID on the fromt
[09:30] <jcoxon> hmmm thats the internal log
[09:30] <jcoxon> there is a bearing on the end though for some reason it hasn't recorded them all
[09:30] <rjharrison> Only when it can't obtain it
[09:31] <jcoxon> i don't transmit hte whole sentence
[09:31] <rjharrison> It's there later
[09:31] <jcoxon> the rtty encoder adds the pegasus bit
[09:31] <jcoxon> actually the rtty encoder adds a lot more
[09:31] <rjharrison> APU16N M6JCX ,17:11:46,51.498372,-0.052057,240.5M,0.059,190.24,31
[09:31] <rjharrison> APU16N M6JCX ,17:11:49,51.498375,-0.052054,240.3M,0.175,189.83,32
[09:31] <jcoxon> ooo thats a good point
[09:31] <rjharrison> is that a better sample
[09:32] <jcoxon> i guess so
[09:32] <jcoxon> though it doesn't have the $$ at the beginning
[09:32] <rjharrison> That's a decode from your sound file
[09:32] <jcoxon> would need to adapt the encoder
[09:32] <jcoxon> rjharrison, my plan was to generate a new log for you once i'd updated Pegasus
[09:33] <rjharrison> Do you like that idea then at least you have a fix for the start of all sentances
[09:33] <jcoxon> for example with out the M for alt
[09:33] <rjharrison> Not my idea
[09:33] <jcoxon> yeah i like it
[09:33] <jcoxon> will need to talk to rocketboy about how to implement it
[09:34] <jcoxon> in my setup
[09:34] <rjharrison> I'm thinking about filtering units on the listener as I can see that it's helpfull if you are just reading the output
[09:34] <jcoxon> it does make it easier to read
[09:34] <jcoxon> gives you a point of reference
[09:34] <rjharrison> Surly you just echo $$calsign
[09:35] <rjharrison> Is it mor complicated than that on your setup
[09:35] <rjharrison> more
[09:35] <rjharrison> I will filter Mm from the end of alt if it's there
[09:36] <jcoxon> oooo i found out how to do it
[09:36] <jcoxon> no problem
[09:36] <rjharrison> I can't imagine people using C for temp
[09:36] <rjharrison> put perhaps I should put that in too
[09:36] <jcoxon> nah
[09:36] <rjharrison> -23.43C ?
[09:36] <rjharrison> nar
[09:37] <rjharrison> I'm going to start construction on my beacon soom
[09:37] <rjharrison> soon
[09:37] <rjharrison> Homefully for launch next w/e
[09:37] <rjharrison> hopefully
[09:37] <jcoxon> cool cool
[09:38] <jcoxon> does no one have a zero pressure lying around?
[09:43] <jcoxon> oh well
[09:43] <jcoxon> cool jet stream
[09:48] <jcoxon> next weekend will be good
[09:50] <rjharrison> loo break
[09:51] <jcoxon> haha
[09:51] <rjharrison> Should be able to get everything ready for next w/e if I can get some time
[09:52] <jcoxon> sacrifice a beacon launch?
[10:01] <rjharrison> Yep
[10:01] <rjharrison> GPS and possibly temp sensors
[10:02] <jcoxon> okay
[10:04] <jcoxon> well i'll certainly track
[10:04] <rjharrison> Me too :)
[10:05] <rjharrison> I'm going to set up the base station at home and get the wife to keep on frequency
[10:05] <rjharrison> Won't have time to set up web interface to radio
[10:05] <jcoxon> yeah focus on the beacon
[10:05] <rjharrison> Very pleased with the ft-897
[10:06] <jcoxon> you got it!
[10:06] <jcoxon> or is that the one you already had?
[10:06] <rjharrison> Yep :)
[10:06] <rjharrison> No that was the ft 817
[10:07] <rjharrison> The nice thing about the 897 is that it can be run off batteriers ie portable
[10:07] <jcoxon> oh okay
[10:07] <jcoxon> amazing
[10:07] <jcoxon> gosh everyone got amazing christmas presents :-p
[10:07] <rjharrison> You'll have to complain to santa :)
[10:07] <jcoxon> nah its okay
[10:07] <jcoxon> don't want to upset him
[10:08] <jcoxon> not sure whether i'll come up to Cam for hte launch
[10:08] <jcoxon> might be better tracking it from london
[10:08] <rjharrison> If you're interested http://www.yaesu.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=179_201&products_id=1071
[10:09] <jcoxon> wow
[10:12] <jcoxon> so if we can get both me tracking and your home tracking
[10:12] <jcoxon> and then in the field tracking
[10:12] <rjharrison> If you come to camb to track will you be near a power supply. If so I could bring the base station up for you to track with
[10:13] <jcoxon> what would be your plan?
[10:13] <jcoxon> walk me through the launch plan i mean
[10:13] <rjharrison> Drive down to camb sat / sun and launch
[10:13] <jcoxon> then stay in cam?
[10:13] <rjharrison> Yep
[10:14] <rjharrison> Till we loose contact
[10:14] <rjharrison> Have some food and a glass of beer if all goes well and head home
[10:14] <jcoxon> hmmm okay
[10:14] <rjharrison> Can we access the bar in churchill
[10:14] <rjharrison> Or coffee lounge
[10:15] <jcoxon> not sure
[10:15] <rjharrison> whatever it is
[10:15] <jcoxon> rjharrison, i might stay down in london and track
[10:15] <jcoxon> means i can keep an eye on everything
[10:15] <rjharrison> Ok
[10:15] <jcoxon> but if no one else is around to launch i'll come up as its no fun on your own!
[10:17] <jcoxon> in the mean time i'll finally get round to attaching the controls of my radio to my laptop
[10:18] <jcoxon> right i'll bbl
