[00:05] <Wild-Wing> hello everyone
[00:05] <jcoxon> hi Wild-Wing
[00:07] <Wild-Wing> how are you jcoxon
[00:08] <jcoxon> good thanks Wild-Wing and you?
[00:08] <Wild-Wing> im good thanks for asking
[00:08] <jcoxon> here for balloons?
[00:09] <Wild-Wing> the story caught my eye yea
[00:09] <jcoxon> cool - which launch was that :-)
[00:09] <Wild-Wing> the one on sparkfun
[00:09] <jcoxon> oh cool
[00:09] Action: stilldavid looks side to side
[00:09] <jcoxon> well you are in the right place
[00:09] <fsphil> haha
[00:10] <stilldavid> not sure who mentioned #highaltitude on the sparkfun side of things
[00:10] <jcoxon> fsphil, i've pulled your changes and i've enabled Hell and also put back some tabs for WB8ELK
[00:11] <Wild-Wing> well i found it on some websites through my research
[00:11] <jcoxon> stilldavid, i think brennen mentioned #sparkfun

[00:11] <jcoxon> i mean mentioned #highaltitude
[00:11] <brennen> huh what?
[00:11] <stilldavid> ah, that's right
[00:12] <brennen> oh yeah, in comments somewhere.
[00:12] <fsphil> thanks jcoxon
[00:12] <jcoxon> trying to remember what other jobs i had
[00:12] <jcoxon> dl-fldigi requests please
[00:12] <jcoxon> (apart from the windows bug)
[00:14] <Wild-Wing> what kinda cameras do you guys/gals use?
[00:14] <jcoxon> the most popular is canon a560
[00:14] <fsphil> jcoxon, text box for upload url?
[00:14] <jcoxon> running the custom CHDK firmware
[00:16] <jcoxon> fsphil, yeah
[00:16] <jcoxon> fsphil, when you added you image tab did you use fluid?
[00:17] <fsphil> ah, no -- I didn't know about that until recently
[00:17] <jcoxon> okay - makes sense
[00:18] <jcoxon> would be worth 'porting' it over just to keep it in correct
[00:18] <fsphil> yes, agreed
[00:20] <jcoxon> will save off on the url for a little bit - need to decide how we are going to go about doing that

[00:30] <Wild-Wing> this may sound like a stupid question but for those who dont have a ham license what radio would they use?
[00:30] <Randomskk> any, you don't need a license to get the radio in most places
[00:30] <Randomskk> well.
[00:30] <Randomskk> depends on where you are actually w.r.t transmitting
[00:31] <jcoxon> in the UK we use ham radios to receive and then licence-exempt radio modules
[00:31] <Wild-Wing> wrt?
[00:31] <jcoxon> such as the radiometrix ntx2
[00:31] <Randomskk> with regards to
[00:31] <jcoxon> on the balloon
[00:33] <Wild-Wing> ahh ok what about one of those 1 watt 900 mhz radios sparkfun sells would that be good?
[00:33] <jcoxon> they are pretty good
[00:33] <jcoxon> quite pricey
[00:33] <jcoxon> Wild-Wing, it depends a lot on what you want to transmit
[00:34] <jcoxon> they'll get a lot of data over quickly
[00:34] <jcoxon> there are simpler, cheaper, low powered modules which would work just as well
[00:34] <jcoxon> but only for say location data (from a gps)
[00:35] <jcoxon> time for bed for me
[00:35] <jcoxon> night all
[00:35] <Wild-Wing> night jcoxon
[00:35] <jcoxon> Wild-Wing, (check out http://wiki.ukhas.org.uk)

[00:40] <Laurenceb> (on the subject of tether propulsion)
[00:40] <fsphil> it is :)
[00:41] <Laurenceb> thats 20% better than spectra
[00:41] <SpeedEvil> DO you have any thoughts on the best algorithm to find the set of points from a GPS (1/s for around a week) that are inside given radii from the centre? Ignoring for the purposes of centrefinding the ones outside the points?
[00:42] <SpeedEvil> Actually - no - that's mostly a silly idea
[00:42] <Laurenceb> maybe a iterative process
[00:42] <Laurenceb> fairdoos
[00:42] <Laurenceb> yes, there are better statistical techniques to do wht you want there
[00:43] <SpeedEvil> I have a development n900, and I have had no energy for the last week or so, so I'm simply leaving it in a fixed position with a good skyview, and doing GPS accuracy tests on it
[00:43] <SpeedEvil> Interesting (fibre)
[00:43] <Laurenceb> fairdoos, whats the gps
[00:43] <SpeedEvil> But in practice, simply averaging is probably sane
[00:43] <Laurenceb> yeah, that fibre easily gives you a 4.5Km/s tip speed tether
[00:43] <SpeedEvil> Some TI chipset
[00:43] <Laurenceb> interesting, havent come across Ti GPS
[00:44] <SpeedEvil> You won't.
[00:44] <Wild-Wing> hmmm SpeedEvil thats a cool idea just leaving it in one place to see how accurate it is i like that
[00:44] <SpeedEvil> Unless you are willing to buy half a million
[00:44] <Laurenceb> yeah
[00:44] <Laurenceb> oh well I'd better get some sleep

[00:45] <SpeedEvil> average of various timescales of a GPS - for example. (not the GPS in question)
[00:45] <SpeedEvil> black crosses are 24h
[00:46] <SpeedEvil> There are only really significant gains averageing up to an hour in that case - or for >12h - in between doesn't buy you much
[00:47] <Wild-Wing> hmmm cool
[00:50] <Wild-Wing> how do you know what gps to use?
[00:51] <SpeedEvil> What do you mean?

[01:27] <fsphil> gps
[01:27] <Wild-Wing> well i read they shouldnt work above that height
[01:28] <fsphil> not all do
[01:28] <fsphil> there is a list on the wiki --> http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:gps_modules
[01:29] <Wild-Wing> lol of course i forgot to check the wiki
[01:29] <fsphil> yep lol, there's a ton of stuff on there. and if it isn't you'll usually get the answer here, though maybe not immediately :)

[01:33] <Wild-Wing> fsphill have you done any flights your self?
[01:33] <fsphil> I build a backup payload for one a few months ago, currently working on my own now
[01:34] <Wild-Wing> cool what are you going to to put in your own?
[01:35] <fsphil> for this one just a camera and the tracking module. I do have a little camera connected to the module for sending down small images during the flight
[01:36] <fsphil> I'll save the more adventurous stuff for later :)
[01:36] <Wild-Wing> cool that sounds fun and smart what are you using for the tracking system
[01:37] <fsphil> it's an avr microcontroller. it takes the strings from the gps module and transmits it out with the ntx2 radio module
[01:38] <fsphil> the guys here have developed a live tracking system that can receive the data and plot it on a map
[01:38] <Wild-Wing> ahh cool and thats insane

[01:38] <Wild-Wing> do you live in england?

[01:39] <fsphil> it's wet ;-)
[01:39] <Wild-Wing> lol
[01:40] <fsphil> it does make launching a bit more interesting, we're surrounded by water on three sides
[01:41] <fsphil> you're in the US?
[01:41] <Wild-Wing> yea it does i hope you dont loose yours?
[01:41] <fsphil> me too :) the predictor does help massively with that though
[01:41] <fsphil> takes some of the guesswork out of it
[01:42] <Wild-Wing> yes i bet it would how many flights have you been apart of?
[01:42] <fsphil> just the one so far
[01:43] <fsphil> if all goes to plan there'll be another two this year

[02:04] <juxta> hehe
[02:04] <juxta> are you planning a launch yourself Wild-Wing?
[02:05] <Wild-Wing> well im thinking of it
[02:06] <Wild-Wing> i am doing alot of research so i have a clue of what im doing how about you?
[02:07] <juxta> I've done a few launches down here
[02:07] <Wild-Wing> that is so cool
[02:07] <juxta> did you say that you were from Massachusetts?
[02:08] <Wild-Wing> yes i did
[02:08] <juxta> there are some guys who launched from MIT a while ago
[02:09] <Wild-Wing> hehe i read that they did i forgot where they recovered the ballon
[02:10] <juxta> not too far away I think
[02:11] <Wild-Wing> i want to say they launched in sturbrige mass and recovered in a city west of sturbridge
[02:15] <Wild-Wing> so what up with you juxta
[02:15] <juxta> nothing exciting, weather here sucks at the moment
[02:15] <Wild-Wing> here too
[02:17] <juxta> I just submitted a NOTAM to get permission to launch again on Friday though
[02:17] <Wild-Wing> NOTAM?
[02:17] <juxta> notice to air-men
[02:18] <juxta> lets anybody who is flying a plane know to watch out for a big balloon :)
[02:18] <Wild-Wing> ahhhh hehe do you have to do that up in the usa?
[02:19] <juxta> not sure
[02:19] <juxta> I don't know the USA rules :)
[02:19] <Wild-Wing> hmm guess i would have to call the FAA to find out
[02:20] <juxta> there have been lots of launches in the USA
[02:20] <juxta> might be worth sending an email to someone who has launches before
[02:20] <Wild-Wing> true and good idea if i knew of any one here
[02:20] <juxta> I think WB8ELK is quite active: http://hiwaay.net/~bbrown/

[02:28] <juxta> you can have a look at the flights on the blog Wild-Wing: www.projecthorus.org

[08:59] <m1x10> nice, I will see what I can do
[08:59] <m1x10> jcoxon, inline resistor method looks simple for me
[08:59] <m1x10> just put 10k resistor betwween the pins.

[09:03] <m1x10> loled
[09:03] <jcoxon> oh wow
[09:03] <jcoxon> very cool
[09:03] <jonsowman_work> should be interesting
[09:03] <jcoxon> m1x10, if you are careful and follow that guide you should be fine
[09:03] <DanielRichman> jcoxon: hows it going?
[09:03] <jcoxon> the inline resistors isn't hte 'best' solution as they say
[09:03] <jcoxon> but will certainly work
[09:03] <jcoxon> DanielRichman, hey - realised i don't have clue about your curl/fldigi mashup :-p
[09:04] <jcoxon> tis a bug i'm sure you know about
[09:04] <jcoxon> http://github.com/jamescoxon/dl-fldigi/issues#issue/1
[09:04] <DanielRichman> :-*
[09:04] <jcoxon> i got an output by running it in wine - it replicates the issue
[09:05] <DanielRichman> oh replication in wine makes things easier
[09:05] <jcoxon> pretty certain it replicates it
[09:05] <jcoxon> on a side not i've fixed hellschreiber in dl-fldigi and put back a tab to allow people to turn logging on and off
[09:05] <jcoxon> note*
[09:06] <DanielRichman> :-)
[09:06] <jonsowman_work> is the RV button back?
[09:06] <jcoxon> yes

[09:09] <m1x10^Afk> what is a pullup resistor?
[09:09] <m1x10^Afk> what's the diff between the normal resistor?
[09:09] <jcoxon> well they are normal resistors
[09:09] <jcoxon> but
[09:10] <jcoxon> you place them on a line to stop the line floating
[09:10] <DanielRichman> jcoxon, I'm half way through the first of two weeks. On the other hand, I am armed with putty and links
[09:11] <m1x10^Afk> line floating?
[09:11] <jcoxon> so on a sensor the output wire might be + or -, it'll vary lots
[09:11] <jcoxon> as its not doing anything
[09:11] <jcoxon> so your arduino might get confused
[09:11] <DanielRichman> just looking at the wine output you posted
[09:11] <jcoxon> so you put a resistor on there to keep it still - so its not 'floating'
[09:11] <jcoxon> DanielRichman, i've got the windows build env working
[09:11] <jcoxon> so can help out
[09:12] <m1x10^Afk> hmm
[09:12] <m1x10^Afk> so when the sensor does not do any output
[09:12] <m1x10^Afk> instead of getting false values
[09:13] <m1x10^Afk> the pullup resistor will keep it in a stable position?
[09:13] <DanielRichman> :-)
[09:13] <m1x10^Afk> something like that?
[09:13] <jcoxon> yes exactly
[09:13] <m1x10^Afk> !!!!!!!!!!!!
[09:13] <m1x10^Afk> experience+=1
[09:14] <m1x10^Afk> about the sensor is says: Connect VCC to VCC and GND to GND, SCL goes to analogue pin 5, SDA to analogue pin4.
[09:14] <jcoxon> yup
[09:14] <jcoxon> are you using the sensor on the sparkfun breakout board?
[09:14] <m1x10^Afk> I will put the 10k resistor only on the VCC line?
[09:14] <m1x10^Afk> yes
[09:14] <DanielRichman> I guess the first step is to find out which line is causing the segfault. We can't attach a debugger easily, so I guess I could add prints at multiple points to find it...

[09:15] <jcoxon> DanielRichman, would it be easier if i did that
[09:15] <jcoxon> if i stuck a load of fprintf in there
[09:15] <jcoxon> and ran it
[09:16] <m1x10^Afk> jcoxon, I wait for your answer to leave home. cause I'll go but what you adviced me. :)
[09:16] <DanielRichman> yeah :-) I have to go but might be back later. Be sure to fflush or it might crash with stuff stil in the buffer
[09:17] <DanielRichman> well as long as the marker ends in \n I guess it should flush anyway
[09:17] <DanielRichman> bbl
[09:18] <jcoxon> m1x10^Afk, no you'll need to follow the guide
[09:18] <m1x10^Afk> or I need to put the stuff between everyting? that is, VCC, GND, SCL, SDA ?
[09:19] <jcoxon> not gnd
[09:19] <m1x10^Afk> that guide talks about SPI I think
[09:19] <jcoxon> similar to i2c
[09:20] <m1x10^Afk> yes but there is a difference
[09:20] <m1x10^Afk> their schema shows that the first device draws 3.3V from another supply
[09:20] <m1x10^Afk> my sensor will take power from arduino
[09:21] <jcoxon> does it provide 3.3v?
[09:22] <m1x10^Afk> no :) my Arduino mini provides 5V
[09:22] <m1x10^Afk> my normal arduino provides 3.3V
[09:22] <jcoxon> you'll kill the sensor if you give it 5v
[09:23] <m1x10^Afk> so I think I'd better connect the sensor straight to normal arduino board which provides a 3.3V pin hole
[09:23] <m1x10^Afk> and start the coding/tests there
[09:24] <m1x10^Afk> what do u think ?
[09:24] <jcoxon> thats an option yeah
[09:24] <m1x10^Afk> I forgot to tell you! I soldered the humidity and pressure sensors myself :)
[09:25] <m1x10^Afk> I got humidity working telling me I got 45% humidity in my room
[09:25] <m1x10^Afk> :P
[09:26] <jcoxon> great work
[09:27] <m1x10^Afk> :)
[09:28] <m1x10^Afk> jcoxon, I have some resistor with just a black line
[09:28] <m1x10^Afk> means 0
[09:28] <m1x10^Afk> can I use them just as wires?
[09:28] <jonsowman_work> yeh
[09:29] <m1x10^Afk> cause I run out of wire now
[09:29] <m1x10^Afk> ok
[09:29] <m1x10^Afk> I will connect arduino analog pin4,5 with sensor SCL, SDA

[10:12] <jonsowman_work> switching the radio to LSB is just too much effort
[10:13] <juxta> jonsowman_work: my radio has a tighter RX filter on CW
[10:13] <jcoxon> allows you to define 2 or more modes and allows quick switching
[10:13] <juxta> oh nice

[13:24] <jonsowman_work> yeh
[13:24] <jonsowman_work> i'd say that's wrong
[13:24] <m1x10> shit then :)
[13:24] <jonsowman_work> 1123.8 hPa would be *slightly* more believable
[13:24] <jonsowman_work> but still probably wrong, that'd be very very high pressure
[13:25] <m1x10> I followed exactly the C code from the datasheet
[13:25] <jonsowman_work> normally ground level is somewhere between 980 and 1040 hPa

[15:45] <jonsowman_work> yeh I thought it would be
[15:45] <juxta_> i'm actually hoping to try some others from around the place
[15:45] <juxta_> there are some Chinese, Indian & Korean manufacturers
[15:45] <juxta_> if the price is right I'll give them a go
[15:46] <jonsowman_work> there's Totex
[15:46] <jonsowman_work> nearly used them for Apex I

[15:53] <jonsowman_work> a long time when out of sunlight and UV
[15:53] <jonsowman_work> they are the main culprits for killing them
[15:53] <jonsowman_work> keep them somewhere dark, cool and dry

[15:55] <juxta_> i'll stockpile a bunch and put them in the cellar ;p

[16:00] <jcoxon> hi rjharrison
[16:01] <juxta_> hmm
[16:01] <jcoxon> cool
[16:01] <juxta_> anything common likely to affect them? mine had turned orange when I pulled it out the other day
[16:02] <SpeedEvil> more seriuously.
[16:02] <juxta_> wow, you guys can launch rockets out in a field? that's awesome - here we have to go into the middle of the desert and in a bunker etc :(
[16:02] <jonsowman_work> juxta_: only because we don't have any deserts
[16:02] <SpeedEvil> I would expect them to be affected by nitrogen compounds, and also ozone and stuff
[16:02] <SpeedEvil> jonsowman: Woomera rocket range!
[16:02] <juxta_> SpeedEvil: yup :)
[16:03] <juxta_> how big are the rockets launched at EARS?
[16:04] <juxta_> (i see it says 4m, but what sort of altitudes/speeds are reached?)
[16:05] <SpeedEvil> IIRC ~few Km, and mach 1
[16:06] <SpeedEvil> GEtting past the bulk of the atmosphere for small rockets has hugely major isues
[16:06] <juxta_> similar to what we launch here then
[16:06] <SpeedEvil> basically that you need a small thrust for a long time.
[16:06] <SpeedEvil> Which basically absolutely makes control mandatory
[16:06] <juxta_> we launch Zuni's here, which do about mach 1.4 and reach 5km or so
[16:06] <SpeedEvil> as otherwise they tip over, and hit bystanders a few dozen km away
[16:06] <jcoxon> juxta_, i've closed your issue on dl-fldigi github
[16:06] <juxta_> jcoxon: awesome :D
[16:06] <jcoxon> as tis fixed
[16:07] <juxta_> well done
[16:07] <jonsowman_work> \o/
[16:08] <juxta_> all glory to those who are brave enough to navigate the code of fldigi
[16:08] <jcoxon> ha i wouldn't go that far
[16:08] <jcoxon> considering its a bug of our own making
[16:09] <juxta_> heh
[16:10] <juxta_> jcoxon: any idea why i was having issues with po/fr.gmo when compiling?
[16:10] <juxta_> SpeedEvil: the zuni's that get launched here have a somewhat bad rep: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1967_USS_Forrestal_fire
[16:11] <SpeedEvil> Is Zuni a generic term?
[16:11] <jcoxon> juxta_, nope
[16:12] <juxta_> Zuni's were a rocket model/type I believe SpeedEvil
[16:12] <juxta_> ah well, we'll see how it goes when I upgrade the distro
[16:13] <m1x10> juxta, I think I made it
[16:13] <m1x10> I mean jcoxon

[16:13] <m1x10> Humidity: 43%
[16:13] <m1x10> Altitude: 152m
[16:13] <m1x10> --------------------------
[16:15] <juxta_> that looks right for pressure at that altitude m1x10
[16:15] <m1x10> GPS reports almost the same alt
[16:16] <m1x10> 130-140
[16:16] <juxta_> great - what pressure sensor are you using?
[16:16] <m1x10> BMP085 from sparkfun
[16:17] <m1x10> it includes an temperature sensor too
[16:17] <m1x10> so you have temp, alt, pressure in a small chip :)
[16:18] <juxta_> oh right, I know the one :)
[16:18] <m1x10> pretty easy to code it
[16:18] <m1x10> I started 4-5 hours ago and just finished
[16:19] <juxta_> only downside is the alt/pressure limit
[16:19] <m1x10> what limit? !

[16:19] <juxta_> that sensor will only give you a reading down to 300hPa, anything lower than that it'll just give you the same reading
[16:20] <jonsowman_work> blimey 300mb
[16:20] <jonsowman_work> that's not great :\
[16:20] <juxta_> which translates to ~9km
[16:20] <m1x10> oh :(
[16:20] <juxta_> yeah, it's a bit of a shame
[16:20] <m1x10> not again limits
[16:20] <m1x10> first with gps
[16:20] <juxta_> m1x10: you'll get a graph that looks like this:
[16:20] <jonsowman_work> apex 2's pressure sensor bottoms out at 150mb
[16:20] <m1x10> now with pressure
[16:20] <jonsowman_work> but then that's a free sample job and we're not using it for altitude
[16:21] <juxta_> http://projecthorus.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/temp.png
[16:21] <juxta_> I used a different sensor there, it went to 115hPa
[16:21] <m1x10> crap
[16:21] <juxta_> so you can see it zeros out at 15km
[16:21] <m1x10> y
[16:21] <juxta_> but that's okay - it lines up with the GPS nicely!
[16:21] <m1x10> man
[16:22] <m1x10> I started to be happy for a while
[16:22] <m1x10> again same shit
[16:22] <m1x10> so is there any normal pressure sensor?
[16:22] <juxta_> m1x10: not the end of the world - I don't think there are any reasonably priced sensors that run on nice voltages that do a decent range
[16:22] <juxta_> at least none that I've seen
[16:22] <jonsowman_work> juxta_: lines up with the GPS *very* nicely
[16:23] <jonsowman_work> that's neat
[16:23] <jonsowman_work> m1x10: there are sensors (Honeywell do them) but they're not MEMS type
[16:23] <jonsowman_work> they are big, need more power, and are not at all cheap
[16:23] <juxta_> they all bottom out somewhere that makes them annoying for HAB use, or need high voltages
[16:24] <juxta_> jonsowman_work: yeah, we took a reading at ground level so that we could apply the correct offset for the days weather :)
[16:24] <jonsowman_work> nice

[19:09] <DB10> hi
[19:09] <fsphil> all still go for saturday jonsowman?
[19:10] <jonsowman> DB10: how did things go today?
[19:10] <jonsowman> fsphil: we are indeed
[19:10] DaveyC_ (~IceChat7@188-221-51-13.zone12.bethere.co.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[19:10] <jonsowman> predictions are quite changeable at the moment but by tomorrow night we should have a good idea
[19:10] <fsphil> good good!
[19:11] <jonsowman> aiming to be at the launch site by 10:00
[19:11] <jonsowman> but we might delay it a bit

[19:37] Action: LazyLeopard checks for thunderstorms nearer home. Got the radio connected to the HF antenna outside...
[19:39] <fsphil> aah
[19:39] <fsphil> I've heard the end connector on an hf antenna can arc during a storm

[19:53] <rjharrison> jonsowman, i'm going to be in france :(
[19:53] <jonsowman> rjharrison: sounds nice!
[19:54] <Wild-Wing> cool so you only lost one that cool
[19:55] <jonsowman> hopefully we will be getting apex-ii back

[20:56] <Wild-Wing> hehe
[20:59] <Wild-Wing> jon what is your case going to be made of?
[21:00] <jonsowman> carbon fibre plates with expanded polystyrene sandwiched
[21:01] <Wild-Wing> ah nice rigid with carbon fiber nice choice how thick is the rigid going to be?
[21:01] <jonsowman> about 6mm plates
[21:01] <jonsowman> maybe 8mm
[21:01] <jonsowman> can't remember offhand
[21:02] <Wild-Wing> the polystryene? is going to be 2.5 inches thick?
[21:03] <jonsowman> roughly
[21:03] <jonsowman> the google sketchup files are on github
[21:03] <jonsowman> we will see how much poly we need to fit it all in
[21:05] <Wild-Wing> wow i am thinking of using some high density polystyrene
[21:07] <Wild-Wing> any sugestions on how to keep the box together
[21:09] <Randomskk> duct tape
[21:09] <Randomskk> of course
[21:09] <jonsowman> definitely
[21:10] <Randomskk> this tiny13 is cute
[21:10] <Randomskk> they're so much better than pic12f625s
[21:10] <Wild-Wing> whats a tiny13
[21:10] <Randomskk> small microprocessor
[21:10] <Randomskk> plus check it out, 240µA running at 1MHz 1.8V
[21:10] <Randomskk> <0.1µA in sleep mode
[21:10] <jonsowman> wow
[21:10] <Wild-Wing> thats decently fast man
[21:11] <g8tmv> which arch is it?
[21:11] <Randomskk> this thing will be waking up something like every ten seconds for some tiny fraction of a second
[21:11] <Randomskk> g8tmv: AVR
[21:11] MoALTz (~no@ left irc: Ping timeout: 260 seconds
[21:11] <g8tmv> ok, so an ARM clone
[21:11] <Randomskk> so hopefully run for a good long while on a single coin cell
[21:11] <Randomskk> might put in two
[21:11] <Randomskk> g8tmv: well
[21:11] <Randomskk> not really
[21:11] <Randomskk> I don't think I'd call AVRs ARM clones exactly
[21:11] <g8tmv> coin cells are bad at low temp I thought
[21:11] <Randomskk> this isn't going in to space, but they should be fine - lithium
[21:12] <Randomskk> AVRs and ARMs are both RISC style micros
[21:13] MoALTz (~no@ joined #highaltitude.
[21:14] <Wild-Wing> hmmm how do you program one of those suckers
[21:15] <Randomskk> ICSP
[21:15] <Randomskk> 6 pin interface
[21:15] <Randomskk> but the pins can be used for i/o otherwise
[21:15] <Randomskk> 6 pins including power
[21:15] <Randomskk> it's basically SPI for AVRs
[21:15] <Wild-Wing> ok that went over my head
[21:15] <Randomskk> you buy a programmer
[21:16] <Randomskk> it connects to the device with 6 connections
[21:16] <Randomskk> you write code in C
[21:16] <Randomskk> or assembler
[21:16] <Wild-Wing> oh k
[21:16] <Wild-Wing> i get it now

[21:37] <rjharrison> jonsowman done
[21:37] <jonsowman> rjharrison: thanks very much
[21:37] <rjharrison> Please test
[21:37] <rjharrison> I'll give you login if needed
[21:38] <jonsowman> if you don't mind that'd be great
[21:38] <jonsowman> it's likely to need changing again
