[04:09] <juxta> any word on a final value for the auction?
[04:09] <Darkside> might open it up again to get some code..
[04:10] <Darkside> i'll get joel to find out
[04:10] <juxta> alrighty
[04:12] <Darkside> just messagedhim
[04:25] <zwifilms> juxta - see your inbox - motel booked (and yes change of nic - and IRC client here)

[04:27] <zwifilms> juxta - Matt and I will proabbly head off around 9am - I understand zsn has to leave later - there is room in the Commodore if you want to head down earlier with us to if you want to sleep in and head down with Adrian as originally planed - up to you :-)
[04:28] <juxta> haha okay
[04:28] <juxta> well I will see how it pans out
[04:28] <zwifilms> no probs :-)
[04:28] <juxta> I dont know what time Adrian is leaving
[04:29] <zwifilms> spoke to him yesterday morning - he was thinking around midday - its about 4.5hrs to the mount non stop from memory
[04:30] <zwifilms> mind you - Im thinking of waving the camera around a bit either on the way down or when we get there - so it might take us as long :-)
[04:30] <juxta> alrighty
[04:30] <juxta> haha
[04:30] <juxta> is the lake blue at the moment? last time I was there it was, but I know it's only blue in certain months
[04:30] <zwifilms> were you thinking of running the talk similar to the ahars one? (option B0 is that it is too early to think about it just yet :-)
[04:31] <zwifilms> it turns blue in November - so I think it will be
[04:31] <juxta> yes I think something similar
[04:31] <zwifilms> cool
[04:32] <zwifilms> ill stick the later videos back to 720p and being them with me on USB too if you want to use them
[04:32] <juxta> oh good idea
[04:33] <zwifilms> :)
[04:33] <shenki> juxta: o/
[04:33] <juxta> heya shenki
[04:33] <juxta> great news with regards to the auction I hear?
[04:33] <shenki> yeah, it was interesting
[04:34] <shenki> a slightly chaotic start meant i had to walk back to the accomidation to fetch the video
[04:34] <juxta> hehe
[04:34] <shenki> that lead into an impromptu 5 minute presentation infront of the entire conf
[04:35] <shenki> david suggested i could claim to have keynoted at lca now
[04:35] <juxta> haha :D
[04:35] <shenki> luckly we'd had plenty of wine with dinner
[04:35] <juxta> are the keynote talks online somewhere? I'm keen to watch the IPv4/v6 one again :)
[04:36] <shenki> i think they'll turn up here in time: http://linuxconfau.blip.tv/

[12:38] <Laurenceb> "Arduino Linux micro"
[12:38] <Laurenceb> wut
[12:38] <Laurenceb> brilliant project tho
[12:39] <zwifilms> I will admit to not knowing a lot about the telem package they sent up which was apparently the initial tie up with linux - Tux of course was the big drawcard
[12:41] <zwifilms> it was one launch I didnt make it to to quiz Mark on
[12:41] <Darkside> heh
[12:43] Action: Laurenceb wonders how long before someone port linux to atmega
[12:43] <Darkside> ucLinux
[12:43] <zwifilms> hi darkside!
[12:43] <Darkside> heh
[12:44] <Darkside> hey grant
[12:44] <Darkside> the whole 'powered by linux' thing probably shouldn't be on there :P
[12:44] <Darkside> since it isn't :P
[12:44] <Darkside> it does follow the open source spirit tho
[12:44] <zwifilms> so - just reading somemore about the Arduino - and am just coming to that conclusion :-_)
[12:45] <Darkside> ostensibly its open source code
[12:45] <Darkside> tbh people were more interested in the tux than the telemetry :P
[12:45] <zwifilms> i'm sure they were!
[12:45] <zwifilms> just dropped the word linux out of the description
[12:46] <Darkside> http://imgur.com/a/ABRvp
[12:46] <Darkside> if you haven't seen
[12:46] <zwifilms> cool!
[12:47] <zwifilms> mind if I add that link to the Vimeo film description?
[12:47] <Darkside> sure
[12:47] <Darkside> go for it :P
[12:47] <Elwell> heh. awesome the way his feet bounce at burst
[12:48] <Darkside> hell yeh :P
[12:55] <zwifilms> Darkside - i'll get you to check the description now I have updated it
[12:56] <Darkside> Payload: Tux the Penguin - the Linux mascot :-) - and an Arduoino powered ModSenDat telemetry package
[12:56] <Darkside> apart from that, all good
[12:57] <zwifilms> ok - a spelling error or delete the line completely? ?!?
[12:58] <zwifilms> (might as well get it tight while I have the editor open)
[12:58] <Darkside> spelling error
[12:58] <Darkside> its fine otherwise

[13:00] <Darkside> Arduino vs Arduoino
[13:00] <zwifilms> yup - finally spotted it
[13:01] <Darkside> perfect
[13:01] <zwifilms> saved - check i got it right as I am going dislexic
[13:01] <Darkside> i see the update
[13:01] <zwifilms> (see I said I couldnt spell! :-?
[13:01] <zwifilms> now up to 2005 plays :-)
[13:02] <Darkside> cool :P
[13:03] <zwifilms> it must have tickled someone's fancy in the Czech Republic - second highest play rate for any country (450) - Aust is 649 - play coverage is pretty much global
[13:04] <Darkside> nice
[13:04] <Darkside> anyway, i must sleep

[15:45] <Maxence> do you know any team preparing a balloon lauch in the UK in the coming weeks/months ?
[15:46] <Maxence> I come quite often on this chat & forums asking to be part of a team
[15:49] <Upu> yeah there is one this weekend Maxence
[15:49] <Upu> Pico Balloon launch
[15:49] <Upu> http://wiki.ukhas.org.uk/projects:picoatlas:picoatlasii
[15:50] <Maxence> picoatlas
[15:50] <Maxence> yep :)
[15:50] <Maxence> but I'd like to be involved in the making process, not just a spectator
[15:50] <Upu> well break out an Arduino :)
[15:50] <Upu> what are you good at ?
[15:51] <Maxence> I tried to create something myself but I dont have much time
[15:51] <Upu> electronics, software ?
[15:51] <Maxence> im doing a MA in communication design
[15:51] <Maxence> so a bit of arduino etc
[15:51] <Upu> always nice to do it yourself
[15:51] <Maxence> at the moment I'm making a Yagi antenna with a radio receiver
[15:52] <Maxence> and I have a gopro HD to add in the payload
[15:52] <Upu> yes I'd like to launch one of those but only when I know my payload works and I can get it back :)
[15:52] <Maxence> same :)
[15:53] <Upu> I'm waiting on a cheaper AEE-MD91S to be delivered

[17:54] <NigeyS> fsphil, electric issue was streetwide last night .. lol
[17:54] <fsphil> uh-oh! you're draining the grid NigeyS :D
[17:55] <NigeyS> wasnt me! just seemed to coincide with the twice i turned on atlas and the gps and radio :|
[17:55] <NigeyS> i blame jcoxon :P
[17:55] <Dan-K2VOL> Jcoxon, what's the flight profile plan for this weekend
[17:55] <jcoxon> pah
[17:55] <NigeyS> hehe
[17:55] <jcoxon> running a forecast right now but
[17:56] <jcoxon> http://www.flickr.com/photos/jcoxon77/5391956109/
[17:56] <jcoxon> something like the southern lines
[17:56] <NigeyS> bloody eck im in range of all of them
[17:56] <jcoxon> but its going to travel a lot slower
[17:56] <Upu> whats radio horizon @ 4000m ?
[17:56] <jcoxon> Upu, suprising
[17:57] <jcoxon> last flight people did quite well in getting it
[17:57] <Upu> I'll give it a shot what time are you aiming for ?
[17:57] <jcoxon> i think its more likely to be 2000 - 3000
[17:57] <jcoxon> Upu, still deciding, if i launch too late there is a crossing london risk
[17:57] <jcoxon> so probably early
[17:57] <Upu> ok
[17:57] <jcoxon> i also have the issue of what to do after launch
[17:58] <Upu> I have a question, in the event York doesn't come off can I launch from down there if one of you are about ?
[17:58] <NigeyS> get some bathers by the looks of it :p
[17:58] <jcoxon> if i travel home it always seems to come down
[17:58] <NigeyS> cheap b&b down south somewhere ?
[17:59] <jcoxon> might see if ed is up for setting up mission control in cambridge
[17:59] <jcoxon> as my online dl-fldigi works really well on my phone

[17:59] <Dan-K2VOL> Jcoxon, what do you plan for the fill of the envelopes? From what brad and I could tell you may need to fill it with barely a few grams lift
[18:00] <Dan-K2VOL> Of extra lift
[18:00] <jcoxon> Dan-K2VOL, yeah thats what i'm thinking
[18:00] <jcoxon> just need to distribute that lift equally
[18:00] <Zuph> Dan-K2VOL: Thats what we found for low pressures. jcoxon have you done any burst testing on the balloons?
[18:01] jasonb (~jasonb@12.201.129.162) joined #highaltitude.
[18:01] <jcoxon> steve has
[18:01] <jcoxon> on the smaller balloons
[18:01] <jcoxon> let me find hte data
[18:02] <jcoxon> so a 18 inch balloon burst at 1psi
[18:02] <Zuph> ah
[18:02] <jcoxon> but he didn't risk a 36 inch
[18:02] <jcoxon> which is what we are using
[18:04] <Dan-K2VOL> Hmm it's likely to burst lower
[18:04] <Zuph> We ran some numbers for a 200g payload superpressure at 12km, and found that to keep pressure low, it needed no more than 225g of lift at takeoff.
[18:04] <NigeyS> james are you going to use all 4 or just whatever you need depending on weight ?
[18:04] <Dan-K2VOL> If its the same stuff
[18:04] <jcoxon> NigeyS, yeah will have to see the final weight
[18:04] <Dan-K2VOL> However to do it at 1000m we needed very very little extra lift
[18:04] <Zuph> Those numbers gave a .4 psi superpressure if the temperature delta was 50c.
[18:04] <jcoxon> probably use all 4
[18:04] <NigeyS> okies
[18:05] <jcoxon> currently running a battery test
[18:05] <Dan-K2VOL> Can you inflate indoors?
[18:05] <jcoxon> quite possibly
[18:05] <NigeyS> i wont run mine until i get the new vregs, pointless doing any testing until it's been changed over
[18:05] <jcoxon> NigeyS, yeah
[18:05] <jcoxon> Dan-K2VOL, depends on launch site
[18:06] <Dan-K2VOL> I would, and precisely measure your lift to the gram if you can
[18:06] <jcoxon> don't need too much space really

[18:07] <jcoxon> Dan-K2VOL, that is one advantage of launching in cambridge - can have cover for the fill
[18:08] <jcoxon> just depends on the flight path
[18:08] <Colin-G8TMV> jcoxon: so it's Sunday morning now?

[18:11] <jcoxon> Colin-G8TMV, still working on that
[18:11] <jcoxon> it'll be in the air in the morning
[18:12] <jcoxon> Colin-G8TMV, its all a balance right now between flight path and battery life
[18:12] <Colin-G8TMV> ok, You launching in Norfolk somewhere?
[18:12] <jcoxon> maybe :-)
[18:13] <jcoxon> will know more this evening
[18:13] <Colin-G8TMV> I'm just trying to think of where we will operate from
[18:13] <jcoxon> yeah
[18:13] <jcoxon> ummm well it'll come over cambridgeshire
[18:13] <jcoxon> thats for certain
[18:14] <Colin-G8TMV> Yeah, it would be nice to operate from somewhere we can have power rather than having to run a generator
[18:14] <jcoxon> yeah
[18:14] <Colin-G8TMV> but height might lso be good
[18:14] <jcoxon> i'll have traj predictions once i have the site
[18:14] <jcoxon> am playing around with that right now

[18:19] Action: Colin-G8TMV got an iMax B6 charger today and is experimenting with it atm
[18:21] <jcoxon> okay here is a question for the channel to debate
[18:21] <jcoxon> when is the best time to launch a super-pressure
[18:21] <jcoxon> allowing for day time heating and night time cooling
[18:21] <NigeyS> sunrise :P
[18:22] <fsphil> pre-heat it maybe, in a warm car
[18:22] <NigeyS> yeah chuck the car heaters on for a bit, launch about 9 / 10am

[18:31] <jcoxon> or
[18:31] <jcoxon> do you launch when its cold - cause then you know you have lift
[18:31] <NigeyS> that's why i said sunrise :)
[18:32] <jcoxon> but then you need to be sure that the heat doesn't burst teh balloon
[18:33] <NigeyS> well sundays meant to be a pretty cold day, below 4c you wont get to much heating
[18:42] <Dan-K2VOL> well, jcoxon good question
[18:43] <jcoxon> hehe

[18:46] <Dan-K2VOL> At 3000m you're not going to see much more solar heating more than you'd get at the ground
[18:48] <Dan-K2VOL> So I wouldn't worry too much about thermal overpressuring, with an aluminized baloon, at 10000 ft there will be significant conduction of temperature to air molecules
[18:49] <Dan-K2VOL> Do you know how much your balloons weigh?
[18:49] <Dan-K2VOL> And their volumes?
[18:49] <jcoxon> i can weigh the balloons
[18:50] <jcoxon> their volumes are a bit harder
[18:50] <Dan-K2VOL> that's really critical to being able to getting a successful superpressure calculation
[18:50] <Dan-K2VOL> are they oval shaped?
[18:51] <jcoxon> so they are circular
[18:51] <jcoxon> 91cm across
[18:51] <jcoxon> however not spherical
[18:51] <Dan-K2VOL> Yeah pillow
[18:52] <jcoxon> trying to think how to measure it
[18:52] <Dan-K2VOL> Well if you can spare one, the most precise way would be to fill it underwater
[18:52] <jcoxon> i've got 4 :-)
[18:53] <jcoxon> but i might need 4
[18:53] <Dan-K2VOL> just put it underwater empty, and put a funnel in the neck, and fill it with known measured qtys of water
[18:53] <Dan-K2VOL> Heh, yeah, and it's probably never gonna seal the same after that
[18:53] <Zuph> For circular "party" balloons (two circular pieces of mylar sealed together), the volume is approximately 1.2185*R^3
[18:53] <Laurenceb_> whens the pico 2 launch?
[18:53] <Dan-K2VOL> Thanks Zuph
[18:53] <jcoxon> Dan-K2VOL, should have got 5!
[18:54] <jcoxon> Laurenceb_, probably sunday
[18:54] <Dan-K2VOL> brad's formula should be good enough for now

[20:27] <jcoxon> Dan-K2VOL, is
[20:27] <jcoxon> and i've had some experience
[20:28] <dubbaluga> ah, i see, so, you've been able to bring it higher then?
[20:28] <jcoxon> so you are thinking of getting it high then say a latex?
[20:29] <dubbaluga> thought so (sorry, i'm fairly new to the topic)
[20:30] <jcoxon> oh okay
[20:30] <jcoxon> my experience is more in long duration - heavy lift flights
[20:30] <dubbaluga> okay, i'm more into the hobby thing, just ordered the parts for my first flight
