[00:00] <jcoxon> Zuph, in its current state it will only upload new data which appears after startup
[00:00] <Zuph> Alright, that's good.
[00:01] <Zuph> Well, we'll always have your old script as a back up if the new one fails catastrophically. I'll note the failure mode and send you an email so you can fix it at a relatively sane hour given the time zone :)
[00:01] <jcoxon> hehe yes
[00:01] <jcoxon> i'm working 9-5 tomorrow so if you get it to me before 9UTC i'll fix it :-p
[00:02] <Zuph> heh, might still be up at 9UTC :-p
[00:02] <jcoxon> i think the issues will come clear early on
[00:02] <jcoxon> might be worth testing a restart of the script mid stream
[00:02] <Zuph> Good idea. We'll do that given the opportunity.
[00:03] <Zuph> Still wrestling with cpan on this side, but I don't expect it to be a problem.
[00:03] <jcoxon> if not we can run it on habhub
[00:03] <jcoxon> can get you a login

[01:39] <NigeyS> don't forget we are only a little tiny island after all :p
[01:41] <Zuph> Fair enough.
[01:42] <NigeyS> how did your battle go with CPAN ?
[01:42] <juxta> we're on a huge island
[01:42] <juxta> and you still have 3 times our population ;p
[01:43] <NigeyS> lol thats because no-one is silly enough to live in most of the north of it!
[01:43] <juxta> not just the north, pretty much most of the country
[01:43] <juxta> only the coast is inhabited really
[01:43] <NigeyS> what is the population of aus anyway ?
[01:44] <juxta> 22million i think
[01:44] <Zuph> CPAN was defeated.
[01:44] <NigeyS> blimey
[01:44] <juxta> google says 21.8, close enough
[01:44] <NigeyS> yey Zuph ! it can be a right ******** sometimes!
[01:44] <NigeyS> id emigrate their in a flash but you have scarey spiders and snakes!

[01:45] <juxta> heh
[01:46] <juxta> the big spiders you're thinking of don't live in my state
[01:46] <Zuph> heh, I've entertained vague notions of doing a working holiday in Aus. One of the few countries that will let Americans do such a thing.
[01:46] <juxta> assuming you are thinking of these NigeyS http://blog.hotelclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/funnel-web-spider.jpg
[01:46] <NigeyS> you can do that here .. just bring lots of wooly jumpers and waterproofs :p
[01:47] <NigeyS> eeeeeeew now thats a spider!
[01:47] <fsphil> you won't need the jumpers and waterproofs all the time .. we get almost four days of summer!
[01:47] <NigeyS> lmao phil! maybe 5 if it's good year :P
[01:48] <juxta> how hot is summer?
[01:50] <Zuph> KY Summer = 32 to 37f with too damn much humidity.
[01:50] <Zuph> s/f/c
[01:51] <juxta> KY = Kentucky?
[01:51] <NigeyS> uk summer .. err .. highest weve had is 33c for like a few days but average i think is prolly about 20 / 21c
[01:52] <Zuph> juxta: aye
[01:53] <Zuph> A bad summer will see at least a few days topping 40c, with ridiculous humidity.
[01:53] <NigeyS> eugh i bet thats unpleasant :(
[01:56] <Zuph> It is.
[01:58] <Zuph> Visit in the Spring or Fall :-p
[01:59] <NigeyS> yer, think i'll bypass your summer !

[13:49] <MrCraig> afternoon
[13:49] <earthshine> I do have one somewhere but i can't find the damned thing
[13:49] <NigeyS> lol sods law
[13:49] <NigeyS> afternoon MrCraig
[13:51] <fsphil> I found my missing atmega644p after about a month
[13:52] <fsphil> NigeyS, sweet -- shall start building soon
[13:52] <NigeyS> yey !
[13:52] <NigeyS> you lost it for a whole month? :o
[13:52] <earthshine> Usually happens to me. Buy something, come to use it, can't find it, serch high and low, end up buying another, then find the original one soon after.
[13:52] <fsphil> yea lol
[13:52] <NigeyS> lol always the way!
[13:53] <fsphil> along with it I also found a venus gps module, also lost for months
[13:53] <NigeyS> :o
[13:53] <MrCraig> similar experience but I didn't lose it - I went out and bought a replacement programmer because my kit one wasn't working... got home with the new one to discover the chip was inserted 180
[13:53] <fsphil> ooops!
[13:53] <NigeyS> hehe woopsie!
[13:53] <MrCraig> yah - but no harm, now I have two programmers.

[13:54] <fsphil> ah, at least the magic smoke didn't get out
[13:54] <NigeyS> evil smoke!
[13:54] <MrCraig> yeah - and I also learned that my kit version had prettier solder joints than the pre-built
[13:54] <MrCraig> which means they both kinda sucked.
[13:55] <MrCraig> Have a solution for the baud rate issue btw - I was so stupid not to think of it to begin with, I'll just programatically alter the baud rate generator between RX and TX
[13:56] <fsphil> how low a baud rate can you get out of it?
[13:56] <MrCraig> good question

[17:32] <jcoxon> also could the HF get a lock hehe
[17:32] <Dan-K2VOL> yes, we'll do it as if we were taking it to the launch site
[17:32] <jcoxon> instead of being stuck on bills house

[17:39] <NigeyS> huh
[17:39] <NigeyS> The US Air Force has launched a second experimental space plane that resembles a small shuttle.
[17:39] <fsphil> W0OTM, was the slow ascent yesterday intentional?
[17:39] <NigeyS> they kept that quiet
[17:41] <Dan-K2VOL> Seeing this ship come out when the STS is being shelved makes me wonder if the Space Shuttle never was released from standby airforce mission duty
[17:41] <fsphil> SG-1 saving the world again
[17:41] <NigeyS> Dan-K2VOL, it does seem a bit suspect doesnt it
[17:41] <jcoxon> the X-37 is awesome
[17:41] <jcoxon> with hte worlds largest parafoil
[17:41] <jcoxon> when it was nasa back in the day
[17:43] <fsphil> it seems odd that the US would have two separate space programs
[17:43] <SpeedEvil> NACA was lots better.
[17:43] <SpeedEvil> NACA got poisoned by money.
[17:43] <SpeedEvil> 'Waste anything but time'
[17:43] <SpeedEvil> Is a motto that any beurocrat will take to their hearts.
[17:44] <NigeyS> indeed
[17:44] <Dan-K2VOL> Fsphil, I think I'd rather the military be required to do it's own dirty work, and not dirty the civilian science and exploration - you see what happened to the shuttle, in the NASA plan it was originally 1/2 the size, until congress told NASA they need to make it work for the Air Force, if they wanted money
[17:45] <Dan-K2VOL> The AF said it's got to carry things the size of freight lorries to orbit, and also land AT THE LAUNCH SITE in ONE ORBIT - hence the need to have wings the size of a 737
[17:46] <Dan-K2VOL> As the earth turns the launch site away from your orbit about 1000 miles during one orbit
[17:47] <fsphil> fair point
[17:48] mattltm (mattltm@ left irc:
[17:49] <NigeyS> good job they did state that it had to have a huge payload capacity mind, Hubble wouldnt have got to orbit otherwise
[17:49] <fsphil> it seems like the military program is being given more attention and funding than the civilian one
[17:50] <Dan-K2VOL> Sure it would have, on a normal rocket
[17:50] <NigeyS> wasnt it to big at the time ?
[17:51] <Dan-K2VOL> I doubt that, honestly at the time, congress mandated that all US space craft must be launched on shuttle if they could possibly fit
[17:51] <Dan-K2VOL> To force people to stop using cheaper disposable rocket service

[19:03] <fsphil> reading the liscence exempt pdf from Ofcom, and I see there's a 40.66 - 40.70 MHz range for general use at 10mw. would there be any advantage to that over 434mhz?
[19:03] <fsphil> license too
[19:06] <Lunar_Lander> the person at the german version of ofcom told me of a band around 405 MHz
[19:06] <Lunar_Lander> for radiosondes
[19:06] <Lunar_Lander> but he said that there must be special arrangements and permits
[19:07] <fsphil> yea
[19:12] <Laurenceb> just been cleaning inside my laptop
[19:12] <Laurenceb> its like dust archaeology in there
[19:13] <NigeyS> lol should see the gfx card fan on mine
[19:13] <Laurenceb> theres different coloured layers of dust ontop of each other
[19:14] <Laurenceb> runs 25C cooler now
[19:14] <Laurenceb> 32C as opposed to 57
[19:15] <fsphil> anyone here used a 3d monitor? either with the lcd shutter glasses, or the glasses-free kind?
[19:15] <Laurenceb> whats the point
[19:15] <SpeedEvil> I had a 3D monitor
[19:15] <SpeedEvil> Now I've just got flatscreens.
[19:16] <fsphil> overrated?
[19:16] <Hiena> I had shutter glasses for my old Voodoo 3 card.
[19:16] <Lunar_Lander> http://resource.mmgn.com/files/PC/dusty%20computer.jpg
[19:17] <fsphil> just think it would be kinda fun playing Duke 4 in 3d when (yay!) it comes out
[19:18] <Hiena> Well, the biggest limiting factor is the size of the monitor.
[19:19] khotchkiss (~khotchkis@ joined #highaltitude.
[19:19] <Hiena> Untill, you have no real big screen, it will has a "3D thingies in the box" feeling.
[19:20] <fsphil> aaah
[19:20] <fsphil> no room here for a big monitor, and they're probably too expensive
[19:20] <fsphil> I'll stick with 2d :)
[19:20] <Hiena> So, i would rather recommend a good pair of VR glasses.
[19:21] <fsphil> the last pair I tried where a bit naff -- but then that was about 15 years ago
[19:22] <Hiena> Also the new ones has a built in accelerometers which gives the real fun.
[19:23] <Hiena> When you turn your head, you actually looks left or right.
[19:23] <fsphil> this one did too, but too slow to match the movement
[19:24] <fsphil> looked like watching a giant low-resolution screen hovering in front of you
[19:25] <Hiena> We tried several ones for the university's VR cockpit project. Most is quite enough for the simulation purpose.

[19:31] <W0OTM> tie my cell phone tracker to it and let it go
[19:31] <fsphil> lol
[19:31] <W0OTM> will be a disposable launch
[19:31] <W0OTM> will track it till the cell phone loosing reception
[19:31] <NigeyS> haha awsome
[19:31] <W0OTM> and it should come back on on the way back down
[19:32] <W0OTM> should be a funny little activity for a Sunday

[20:28] <jcoxon> Zuph, afternoon, something seems to be working
[20:28] <Zuph> Yep! Everything's working great!
[20:28] <fsphil> g'day jcoxon
[20:29] <jcoxon> excellent
[20:29] <Zuph> We're going to take our payload for a drive.
[20:29] <Zuph> Set it up in a park, let it spread out it's antennas and soak up some satellite.
[20:29] <jcoxon> cool - rarely do my scripts actually work
[20:29] <Zuph> hah
[20:29] <Zuph> Glad it works this time.
[20:29] <Zuph> Fortunately, we have one guy on our team that can read perl.
[20:30] <Zuph> But only one! :-p
[20:30] <jcoxon> oh i could have written it in python instead :-)
[20:30] <groupO> hey guys, i know Falcom FSA 03 has a bad rep for dying on you due to static, but is that an issue when you have it powered? by that I mean the foam i have for insulating my payload aint anti-static
[20:30] <jcoxon> you haven't had to edit it have you?
[20:30] <jcoxon> groupO, my experience is that it dies as the antenna wobbles to much and disconnects
[20:31] <fsphil> yea, not so much a static problem
[20:31] <Zuph> jcoxon: not a line.
[20:31] <Zuph> Not that I probably could, anyway :-p
[20:31] <jcoxon> phew
[20:31] <jcoxon> well i've github'd it now
[20:31] <jcoxon> so collaborative editing
[20:31] <Zuph> I saw that, many thanks.
[20:31] <groupO> jcoxon: anyway to provent that? tape? :P
[20:32] <jcoxon> i think hot glue while it works
[20:32] <Zuph> I think I'm the only one on the team that uses github, though :-

[20:33] <Laurenceb> is funsticks dongle going on sale?
[20:33] <jcoxon> it was last on sale 4/3/11
[20:33] <jcoxon> though sold out pretty quickly
[20:35] <Laurenceb> ah
[20:35] <Zuph> Does spacenear have any net distance traveled indicator that I'm missing?
[20:35] <Laurenceb> i dont really wont one - not convinced how well it works - at least without an lna on the front
[20:36] <jcoxon> Zuph, no - remember we don't like distance in the UK :-p
[20:36] <Zuph> hah
[20:36] <Zuph> Well, I might have to hack one in, then :-p
[20:36] <NigeyS> being on a LITTLE island n all that Zuph :p
[20:36] <Zuph> I suppose a net distance *not* traveled indicator would be a little on the philosophical side :-P

[22:11] <Dooberry> it's a shame you wont know how high it got

[22:12] <NigeyS> i'm gonna have to try this with green recycling bags lol!
[22:12] <Dooberry> granted, not the best world record ever, but a world record nevertheless.

[22:16] <W0OTM> I just had some extra He in the tank before I had to return it to AirGas
[22:17] <Dooberry> W0OT - wonderfully random idea!
[22:17] <Dooberry> what type of cell phone are you using?
[22:19] <Dooberry> also, no chute?
[22:20] Hiena (~Hiena@ left irc: Quit: -=Got bored from the net. Gone blowing up things.=-
[22:21] <W0OTM> No chute
[22:22] <W0OTM> the bags after they pop should help slow down
[22:22] <W0OTM> Motorola i290
[22:22] <W0OTM> repaid
[22:23] <Dooberry> ahhh, I was looking at my old 3G the other day and thinking that Glympse might work pretty well for GPS retrieval
[22:23] <Dooberry> *iphone 3g
[22:23] <W0OTM> these i290 are cheap. I got a whole bag
[22:25] <Dooberry> In regards to iHAB three, are the foam containers you use pre purchased or made yourselves?
[22:27] <W0OTM> purchased
[22:28] <W0OTM> $2.50 each
[22:28] <Dooberry> recon you could throw me over a URL?
[22:28] <W0OTM> not really, my mother in law raises cats, and she orders are vaccinations from an online vet.
[22:28] <W0OTM> they ship them in those foam containers
[22:29] <Dooberry> heh, i see!
[22:29] <W0OTM> I justed called them on the phone and asked them to ship me empty boxes.....they laughed...but did

[22:46] <Lunar_Lander> xD yeah it works quite well
[22:46] <Dooberry> 40 minutes above 11,578 feet
[22:46] <Dooberry> rather impressive.
[22:46] <mattltm> Very impressive.
[22:46] <Dooberry> unless, of course, it landed in a field with no cell reception :p
[22:47] Action: mattltm goes to find some heavy duty wheely bin liners...

[23:18] <Lunar_Lander> are the sensors available at sparkfun good?
[23:19] <fsphil> I don't know, I only got a temperature sensor
[23:19] <fsphil> and I haven't used it yet
[23:19] <mattltm> lol.
[23:19] <Lunar_Lander> in particular, those
[23:19] <Lunar_Lander> http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9569
[23:19] <mattltm> Who would know fsphil?
[23:19] <Lunar_Lander> http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9694
[23:19] <Lunar_Lander> the pressure one runs from 300 to 11 hPa
[23:21] Nick change: sighmon_ -> sighmon
[23:21] <fsphil> they both work at different voltages -- that'll be a pain
[23:22] <Lunar_Lander> the arduino has a 3.3V and a 5V port
[23:23] <fsphil> worth a try then
[23:23] <Lunar_Lander> sorry
[23:23] <Lunar_Lander> 300 to 1100 hPa
[23:24] grummund (~grummund@unaffiliated/grummund) left irc: Disconnected by services
[23:26] <fsphil> the pressure above 10km is less than 300 hPa I think
[23:28] <Lunar_Lander> yes
[23:28] <Lunar_Lander> so kick the barosensor out again?
[23:31] <fsphil> doesn't like it would be that useful
[23:31] <Lunar_Lander> ok
