[09:02] <rjharrison> Hi MikeMc
[09:02] <MikeMc> hi
[09:02] <rjharrison> So you going to be getting on with your payload today>
[09:02] <rjharrison> Have you thought of a project name yet?
[09:03] <MikeMc> i hope to rig up the RF module and do some testing over this weekend. Then connect up the GPS, get that workign then conenct that to the RF Moduel to transmit teh GPS data
[09:03] <MikeMc> Yeah the project is already on the Wiki - Earthshine
[09:03] <MikeMc> So first laucnh is Earthshine 1
[09:04] <rjharrison> Cool
[09:04] <rjharrison> Well there is a host of information out there
[09:05] <rjharrison> Do you have an AVR programmer
[09:05] <MikeMc> yep
[09:07] <rjharrison> MikeMc how old are you
[09:08] <MikeMc> er..
[09:08] <MikeMc> 41
[09:08] <rjharrison> Like I assume it's 1/2 term
[09:08] <rjharrison> hehe
[09:08] <rjharrison> Oh cool more my age then 37
[09:08] <MikeMc> lol no
[09:08] <MikeMc> this isn't any school project
[09:08] <MikeMc> doing it for fun
[09:09] <rjharrison> Yep like I did
[09:09] <rjharrison> It's a real rewarding hobby
[09:09] <MikeMc> I'm an amateur astronomer/astrophotographer - One of the news articles mentioned at one of our talks was those kids out in Spain that sent the HAB up with cheap equipment and it inspried me to give it a go as my second hobby is electronics, arduino's, etc.
[09:11] <rjharrison> I would aim to keep your first pay load to under a 0.5kg including the insulation
[09:11] <rjharrison> Should be pretty safe even if things go wrong
[09:12] <rjharrison> I have dome a bit of amateur astronomy / photograpgy too
[09:13] <MikeMc> yeah first launch will be a simple one - just to see if i can do it - then i can get more advacned later
[09:13] <rjharrison> MikeMc have access to 16" Meade telescope
[09:14] <MikeMc> No I don't like Meades
[09:14] <rjharrison> http://www.huddersfieldastronomy.org/images/telesco3b.jpg
[09:14] <MikeMc> i've got mainly refractors as they are best for the kind of astrophotography I do
[09:14] <rjharrison> I don't either but given this is what they have
[09:15] <MikeMc> yeah those are beasts - but if i had the money to buy one of those, i wouldn't buy one of those
[09:19] <russss> I am resisting getting into astrophotography. I think it would cost me lots of money.
[09:19] <russss> also I live in central london which is suboptimal
[09:19] <MikeMc> yep it costs a lot of money
[09:20] <MikeMc> even if you think you won't spend much, you alwasy end up doing so
[09:20] <MikeMc> i've spent around £11k so far
[09:20] <MikeMc> and there is still loads of stuff I want to buy
[09:20] <MikeMc> lol
[09:20] <russss> same with most hobbies which are worth doing ;)
[09:20] <MikeMc> yeah the thing is if you look after the equipment it can last 20+ years
[09:20] <russss> a friend has just bought a bunker in the peak district though. So we're thinking of setting up a hackspace astronomy outpost, heh
[09:21] <MikeMc> sounds cool

[10:34] <rjharrison> He comes he goes
[10:35] <SpeedEvil> Well - you can DIY the scope
[10:35] <SpeedEvil> Some parts of it at least
[10:36] <MikeMc> ?
[10:37] <rjharrison> DanielRichman IN/OUT
[10:38] <SpeedEvil> You take two glass blanks in the size of the mirror you want, and some sand, and you can make a optically perfect mirror
[10:38] <SpeedEvil> which then simply needs silvering.
[10:38] <MikeMc> as simple as that ay?!
[10:39] <SpeedEvil> there are practical details :)
[10:39] <SpeedEvil> But it is something you can do with almost no equipment in the shed.
[10:39] <MikeMc> yeah i know - my mate made his own dobsonian
[10:39] <SpeedEvil> Some various grade SiC powder, some pitch, and it gets easier
[10:41] <MikeMc> heck of a lot of work though
[10:41] <MikeMc> i think i'd rather just buy one
[11:27] <rjharrison> .

[12:09] <MikeMc> me too
[12:09] <rjharrison> ho hum
[12:09] <gordonjcp> kjwsm?
[12:09] <rjharrison> We need a change to the weather
[12:09] <rjharrison> I'll see how things are looking
[12:09] <gordonjcp> cowsm?
[12:09] <gordonjcp> coweim?
[12:09] <MikeMc> cow something
[12:10] <gordonjcp> coweett
[12:10] <gordonjcp> ah
[12:10] <MikeMc> bleh i give up
[12:10] <gordonjcp> coweeat?
[12:11] <MikeMc> Q
[12:11] <MikeMc> What is the best type of antenna to come out of the NTX2 ? A trailing wire or a coathanger dipole?
[12:13] <sbasuita> MikeMc, on the payloads i think people tend to use a quarter wave dipole with a ground plane
[12:13] <MikeMc> hanging below the payload?
[12:13] <MikeMc> sounds dangerous
[12:13] <sbasuita> actually
[12:13] <rjharrison> Yep
[12:13] <sbasuita> its a unipole
[12:13] <sbasuita> but yes
[12:13] <rjharrison> Made from house wire
[12:13] <rjharrison> so not too bad
[12:14] <MikeMc> so it's just a trailing wire?
[12:14] <gordonjcp> why not a j-pole?
[12:15] <rjharrison> hehe this was a teathered test last year
[12:15] <rjharrison> http://www.robertharrison.org/images/icarus/20080921pm/IMG_5370.JPG
[12:16] <MikeMc> so it's just a piece of wire hanging down?
[12:18] <sbasuita> MikeMc, ye

[12:19] <rjharrison> MikeMc this shows the 1/4 wave quite well
[12:20] <MikeMc> ok that one looks like stiff wire
[12:20] <rjharrison> the radials shoudld be 70/4 and the main driver 70/4*.95
[12:20] <rjharrison> It's just 3core and earth
[12:24] <rjharrison> Soldered to one of these http://uk.farnell.com/tyco-electronics/1-1478967-0/socket-sma-panel-launcher/dp/1056376
[12:25] <MikeMc> ok
[12:27] <MikeMc> what is that red thing that looks lke an MP3 player in one of the pics?

[13:14] <SpeedEvil> No - I'm still trying to wrap my head round spin ATM.

[14:59] <MikeMc> great
[14:59] <rjharrison> This will be talks from all projects + safty, law and launch options
[14:59] <rjharrison> locations
[15:00] <MikeMc> i'd like to come to that
[15:00] <rjharrison> Yep all HAB'ers welcoe
[15:00] <rjharrison> me
[15:00] <rjharrison> A theoretical limit of about 150 people
[15:00] <rjharrison> So no danger there
[15:01] <SpeedEvil> This is all going to end up with someone in a belgian accent going 'One of the people in this room is the murderer!' isn't it.

[17:51] <sbasuita> Hmmmm.... is this a good time to upgrade to karmic?
[17:51] <Randomskk> only if you really need to tbh
[17:51] <Randomskk> it will probably break something or other
[17:51] <sbasuita> Nah I go for the clean install
[17:51] <Randomskk> same
[17:52] <Randomskk> but last time I did that, ATI's fglrx was no longer compatible with my graphics card and the old version of the driver was incompatible with the OS
[17:52] <Randomskk> I ended up buying a new graphics card
[17:52] <sbasuita> ouch
[17:52] <Randomskk> otoh karmic is very nice!
[17:52] <sbasuita> k well i think i'm all backed up
[17:52] <Randomskk> and my new graphic card rocks so it's not exactly a bad thing
[17:52] <sbasuita> good good
[17:53] <sbasuita> going for it methinks
[17:53] <sbasuita> see you on the other side Randomskk
[17:53] <sbasuita> (after I burn my disk ;P)
[17:53] <Randomskk> good luck
[17:53] <Randomskk> lemme know how it goes
[17:53] <Randomskk> I may upgrade my laptop at some point
[17:54] <Randomskk> it's on karmic-1 atm
[17:54] <Randomskk> whatever that was called. feisty? dunno

[17:54] <sbasuita> Randomskk, you mean jaunty ;)
[17:54] <Randomskk> I do
[17:54] <Randomskk> feisty is super old
[17:54] Action: Randomskk l2alphabet
[17:54] <sbasuita> I have some weird partitions that need sorting out as well
[17:54] <Randomskk> do what I do
[17:54] <Randomskk> two hard drives
[17:55] <Randomskk> one boot partition on one
[17:55] <Randomskk> the rest of both as an encrypted volume
[17:55] <Randomskk> that provides two encrypted volumes
[17:55] <Randomskk> both contribute one physical volume towards an LVM virtual group
[17:55] <Randomskk> then inside the LVM, a few hundred gigs for /home, some for /, some for /tmp, some for a few others
[17:56] <Randomskk> it's super complicated and totally pointless
[17:56] <Randomskk> i.e. wooo
[17:56] <sbasuita> Randomskk, if I had two hard drives they'd go straight into a raid mirror
[17:56] <Randomskk> hehe

[18:02] <natrium42> triple boot: osx, karmic and win7
[18:02] <sbasuita> natrium42, I might add in xp pro for a triple boot
[18:02] <sbasuita> just to see if its worth it over vista
[18:02] <sbasuita> the only reason i have it is for gaming
[18:03] <natrium42> *7 pro?
[18:03] <sbasuita> no xp
[18:03] <sbasuita> ; P
[18:03] <natrium42> rofl
[18:03] <sbasuita> unless I can find somebody with some spare 7 installs
[18:03] <sbasuita> I would pirate a lot of things, but not an o/s

[20:07] <natrium42> is it confirmed?
[20:07] <sbasuita> natrium42, it has 'critical' priority but i'm not sure if they can even reliably reproduce it
