[00:36] <RocketBoy> Laurence: I havn't got them avialble at the moment - so its going to be difficult to do - but in any event they are laval shaped - so there is more than one dimension to measure (constriction? exit?)

[13:25] <RocketBoy> hey jcoxon:
[13:25] <RocketBoy> did you see Bang goes the theory last night?
[13:25] <jcoxon> yup, watched it on iplayer
[13:26] <RocketBoy> notice the bit at the beginning?
[13:26] <jcoxon> some good flight images
[13:26] <jcoxon> yeah, looked great
[13:26] <jcoxon> seen this high alto balloon cheese mission?
[13:27] <jcoxon> on bbc news
[13:27] <RocketBoy> nope?
[13:27] <edmoore> jcoxon: hi
[13:28] <jcoxon> I'm intrigued on how they are tracking
[13:28] <edmoore> we currently talking to the cheese guys, trying to help them find it
[13:28] <edmoore> (in exchange for cheese)
[13:28] <jcoxon> Java
[13:28] <jcoxon> oops, haha
[13:28] <russss> hah
[13:29] <jcoxon> shame they didn't call you guys in earlier
[13:29] <RocketBoy> cool idea
[13:29] <russss> hah
[13:29] <RocketBoy> but they should have used cream cheese
[13:30] <edmoore> ok, back online in a jif

[15:25] <Neslab> Hey what do you think will do the most of your money?
[15:25] <Neslab> GSM or a radio module??
[15:26] <SpeedEvil> radio
[15:26] <SpeedEvil> If you mean for
[15:27] <SpeedEvil> GSM works at under 100m or so.
[15:27] <SpeedEvil> Radio enables continuous tracking.
[15:27] <SpeedEvil> However - you do require another radio.
[15:27] <SpeedEvil> an actual radio rather
[15:34] <jcoxon> I agree, continuous comms is great

[15:44] <edmoore> hi all
[15:45] <jcoxon> hey
[15:45] edmoore (n=ed@chu-gw.churchillcambridge.co.uk) left irc:
[15:45] <natrium42> heya
[15:45] <Neslab> but radio are more expensive
[15:45] <Neslab> aren't they?
[15:47] <jcoxon> sort of, a good reciever is, the balloon transmitters are quiet cheap
[15:47] <jcoxon> the transmitters are cheaper then gsm modules
[15:48] <jcoxon> hey natrium42
[15:55] <RocketBoy> bbl
[15:57] <SpeedEvil> Neslab: If your GSM module doesn't get lock in the last 10 seconds it's in the air, or you don't manage to send a message with your location, you are screwed if you land in a spot with no coverage.
[15:58] <Neslab> that's true!!!!
[15:59] <Neslab> but it's easier and cheaper for the first steps
[16:05] Neslab (i=4f9ae6fd@gateway/web/freenode/x-ed1746b1fa006ffe) left irc: "Page closed"
[16:05] <jcoxon> the problem with gsm is after you launch you just have to wait for it to land, and if something goes wrong you'll never know

[16:49] <rjharrison> Hey jcoxon
[16:49] <rjharrison> Still not got to payload
[16:49] <rjharrison> Hatching plan with laurenceb
[16:50] <SpeedEvil> Does it involve sharks, with lasers on their heads?
[16:50] <jcoxon> will be back later, train time
[16:50] jcoxon (n=jcoxon@212.183.136.195) left irc: "Bye"
[16:51] <rjharrison> Sharkboy and Lava Girl good plan
[16:52] <natrium42> i still say submit it to geocaching sites
[16:52] <natrium42> :P
[16:53] <SpeedEvil> You need a large plastic pool, and a trained mexican jumping shark.
[16:55] <rjharrison> natrium42: The recovery might be tricky though and probably best not to kill anyone and linking it back to HAB
[16:55] <natrium42> pfft
[16:56] <natrium42> SpeedEvil, trained payload retrieval monkey > shark
[16:56] <rjharrison> + if we get it at least we won't keep it as a souvenir
[16:56] <rjharrison> ahh trained monkey or squirel would be good
[16:59] <natrium42> next time put bananas or nuts onto the payload
