[12:55] <juxta> I heard back from CASA today
[12:57] <juxta> to tell me that they still havent approved my launch after 3 months
[12:58] <SpeedEvil> CASA?
[12:58] <juxta> bunch of useless bureaucrats
[12:58] <SpeedEvil> canadia?
[12:58] <SpeedEvil> n
[12:58] <juxta> our civil aviation safety authority
[12:58] <juxta> (Australia)
[12:58] <SpeedEvil> ah
[12:58] <SpeedEvil> some distance from canada.
[12:59] <SpeedEvil> On any actual grounds?
[13:00] <juxta> they suggested that I had unrealistic expectations to get it approved to quickly
[13:00] <juxta> so* quickly
[13:01] <Laurenceb> sucks :-/
[13:01] <Laurenceb> SpeedEvil: I setup an ST account
[13:01] <Laurenceb> unfortunately can only sample a few accels
[13:01] <SpeedEvil> ST are OK shipping samples
[13:01] <Laurenceb> tho one of them is nice
[13:01] <juxta> they were happy to remind me to pay $240 though
[13:01] <SpeedEvil> but the range is somewhat limited
[13:01] <Laurenceb> I emailed about sampling 3 axis gyro
[13:01] <Laurenceb> yeah
[13:01] <Laurenceb> have you seen their 3axis accel + magno IC
[13:01] <SpeedEvil> no
[13:02] <Laurenceb> Im betting they produce an IMU IC
[13:02] <Laurenceb> soon
[13:02] <SpeedEvil> Even a bad IMU in CSP or something with a onboard filter would be cool.
[13:04] <SpeedEvil> juxta: Apologise for your unrealistic expectations, and say you were mislead by the clearly supernatural, and possibly illegal swiftness of agencies in other countries.
[13:05] <juxta> heh
[13:06] <juxta> I rang them and queried it
[13:08] <juxta> you might want to look at a map of Australia - but I'm in Adelaide. The guy I'm liasing with at CASA is in Perth. He needs to draft up a request and talk to Melbourne ATC for their input. They'll write up their suggestions and send them to him. He'll then write a request for approval and send it to the CASA HQ in Canberra. They'll approve it, and send it back to him. He then needs to
[13:08] <juxta> turn it into some other form of approval, send it to a guy in Adelaide for him to sign it
[13:08] <SpeedEvil> Ah
[13:08] <juxta> then it gets sent back to him, he creates another document, and can send it to me
[13:08] <SpeedEvil> So it's a beaurocracy thing - ratehr than personal efficiency.
[13:08] <juxta> yeah
[13:09] <juxta> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdUwlSwifHw#t=4m2s
[13:11] <juxta> on the plus side though, once I have this approval, I can launch from this site for 2 years
[13:11] <juxta> and need only give a few days notice before that
[13:43] <Laurenceb> SpeedEvil: ST have some pretty good stuff
[13:43] <Laurenceb> I'm tempted to go with STM32F for my uC now
[13:43] <Laurenceb> its what Randomskk uses, and the performance/price is amazing
[13:44] <Laurenceb> also better support than LPC imo - theres even an active forum run by ST
[13:44] <Laurenceb> http://uk.farnell.com/stmicroelectronics/stm32f103cbt6/mcu-32bit-arm-cortex-m3-48lqfp/dp/1606327
[13:44] <Laurenceb> its actually better performance than avr32uc
[13:45] <Laurenceb> and LPC by quite a bit
[13:46] <Laurenceb> could stick on a micro SD card as well - and run a FAT32 library
[14:00] grummund_ (n=grummund@unaffiliated/grummund) joined #highaltitude.
[14:01] Nick change: grummund_ -> grummund
[14:48] <SpeedEvil> stm32 is awesome
[14:48] <SpeedEvil> Also - there is the nice fact of a serial hardware bootloader
[14:48] <SpeedEvil> rs232 5v tx/rx - and you have an unbrickable device
[14:50] <SpeedEvil> It would be awesome if the slightly smaller/cheaper parts had sdram and mmc controller.
[14:50] <SpeedEvil> But you have to go quite a lot up in size before you can.
[14:50] <SpeedEvil> err
[14:50] <SpeedEvil> mmu I mean, not mmc controller
[14:51] Action: SpeedEvil stabs autocompletion.

[23:48] <Laurenceb> SpeedEvil: what compiler setup have you got?
[23:51] <SpeedEvil> gcc
[23:51] <SpeedEvil> I've not been actually compiling for stm yet
[23:52] <Randomskk> codesourcery do a gcc compiler for stm32
[23:52] <Randomskk> I use it
[23:52] <Randomskk> it works
[23:53] <Laurenceb> apparently atollic is just a frontend for gcc
[23:54] <Laurenceb> but makes it way easier for beginners
[23:54] <SpeedEvil> Currently I am working on a stupid thing to integrate foods from a crappy website into a diet tracker on the n900, and have it automagically post the other way.
[23:54] <Laurenceb> heh
[23:54] <SpeedEvil> Which is nice, as it involves maybe a hundred lines of scripting, and that's it.
[23:54] <Laurenceb> my windows partition wont boot :-/
[23:54] <SpeedEvil> :/
[23:54] <Laurenceb> I'm contempting copying all the files off onto a external HDD and reinstalling from scratch
[23:54] <Laurenceb> especially as its the craptop preinstalled junk and have have "aquired" a win xp pro cd
[23:58] <natrium42> Laurenceb, install ubuntu
[23:59] <SpeedEvil> Preinstalled stuff is great!
[23:59] <SpeedEvil> I have only booted windows twice in the past 10 years though.
[23:59] <Laurenceb> "acer arcade comprehensive multimedia suite"
[23:59] <Laurenceb> the hell
[23:59] <SpeedEvil> (bought a new laptop -= using it to test before wiping)
[23:59] <Laurenceb> Randomskk: do you flash using the serial?
[23:59] <Laurenceb> thats what I run 99% of the time :P
[23:59] <Randomskk> yea, it's so much easier
[23:59] <Randomskk> I have jtag working with openocd but it's a pita and requires the massive connector and meh
[23:59] <Randomskk> the serial is quick and easy
