[00:56] <Laurenceb> hi all
[00:57] <Laurenceb> hey hallam
[00:58] Nick change: KingJ -> kingj
[01:01] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: http://www.burleson-arabians.com/horse_milk.htm
[01:01] <SpeedEvil> err
[01:01] <SpeedEvil> http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/08/10/paris_update/
[01:02] <natrium42> SpeedEvil, lol?
[01:04] <Laurenceb> erm APRS
[01:04] <Laurenceb> epic fail
[01:04] <Laurenceb> maybe I should sell them my mini rogallo
[01:05] <Laurenceb> or at least offer to help... if they have money
[01:07] <SpeedEvil> yeah - I noted that earlier
[01:07] <SpeedEvil> CAA+APRS=LOL
[01:07] <SpeedEvil> jcoxon: i'm not sure whether i should email in - as i'm off in a week
[01:07] <Laurenceb> paper...
[01:07] <SpeedEvil> jcoxon: oh i might as well do it :-)
[01:07] <SpeedEvil> jcoxon: will direct them here though!
[01:07] <Laurenceb> I think they are nuts
[01:07] <SpeedEvil> you could easily remake the rollo in paper
[01:08] <Laurenceb> it needs to be made of something with a fairly high strenght to weight
[01:09] <Laurenceb> might just work with redisigned tronics
[01:09] <Laurenceb> and smaller - servo
[01:10] <Laurenceb> I might email them
[01:10] <Laurenceb> if they are serious... which I'm not convinced about
[01:13] <Laurenceb> I'm more interested in building an n prize rocket now
[01:13] <Laurenceb> think I might be able to get the cost down as low as £200
[01:14] <Laurenceb> gtg

[11:33] <Laurenceb> has anyone emailed them?
[11:39] <edmoore> oh I did yesterday, just pointing out that APRS might be illegal for this use
[11:42] <edmoore> noticed a big bounce of traffic from el reg - a random person linked to us in the comments - and followed back to the article. it looks like fun!

[14:06] <SpeedEvil> SOT23 6A bipolar.
[14:38] <rjharrison> SpeedEvil is that good or bad?
[14:39] <SpeedEvil> It's very good - unbelievable from the perspective of only a very few years ago.

[21:42] <rjharrison_home> Hey edmoore Thanks for the info earlier
[21:42] <edmoore> np
[21:43] <rjharrison_home> If the schematic for the cub is about I could prob work out the decoupling
[21:44] <edmoore> tis just a 10nF from +V to GND on the input to the micro - it's a rough science
[21:44] <edmoore> just try and put it as physically close to the micro as poss
[21:47] <hmh33> oh, how did the cub work out?
[21:47] Nick change: hmh33 -> hallam
[21:48] <edmoore> it's still not quite working, but it's working more so
[21:48] <hallam> what is and isn't working?
[21:48] <edmoore> i have retired for the night to hit the library and try and finish badger 2 for as long as this can of red bull will let me
[21:48] <hallam> ok :/ good luck
[21:48] <edmoore> you'd have to ask fergus - he and vinay are still battling with it
[21:49] <edmoore> we got in a mutual grump
[21:49] <rjharrison_home> lol I wish I had a team here to get on with some of the jobs that need to be done

[22:56] <rjharrison_home> Hi Laurenceb
[22:58] Action: Laurenceb is wondering if he should give the register some help with their glider
[22:58] <Laurenceb> I'm not convinced they are serious
[22:59] <Laurenceb> and if its a good idea for me to help them build something more serious glider wise
[22:59] <Laurenceb> probably not
