[12:40] <GroupO> i was told to ground it, but not sure if i did it right, any ideas?
[12:42] <fsphil> how is it connected up now?

[15:37] <GroupO> any ideas: using NTX2 - can i just power that straight from the 3.3v pin in a mega 2560 or do i need to regulate/scale output in any way?
[15:40] <Laurenceb_> tsr eh
[15:41] <Laurenceb_> lol brian cox
[15:41] <NigeyS> GroupO, the ntx2 has an internal regulator so the 3.3v pin will be fine
[15:41] <NigeyS> laurenceb he won 2 awards last night to
[15:41] <GroupO> cool - cos i am having nightmares. I think i have just fried my FSA03
[15:41] <GroupO> :(
[15:42] <NigeyS> what did you do ?
[15:42] <GroupO> i think i shorted the volt reg - because i tested the Vout of it and it seems too high
[15:43] <GroupO> I thne plugged the FSA back into the arduino and it wouldnt respond (ACK resonse check)
[15:43] <GroupO> where as it had previously
[15:43] <NigeyS> eek
[15:44] <GroupO> indeed - however, all it not lost - i got a pack of 10 regs and a back up gps for a tenner extra
[15:44] <GroupO> seems totlaly worthwhile now - just getting it soldered at the no'
[15:44] <NigeyS> :d the gps units are extremely sensitive to over volting
[15:44] <GroupO> think i will hand all electrical responsibilities over at this point, though
[15:44] <GroupO> NigeyS: tell me about it
[15:45] <NigeyS> just dont plug the tx from the arduino in to the gps rx unles youve stepped down the voltage, it'll still send 5v to the falcom if you dont step it down to 3.3
[15:46] <fsphil> I think the ublox is 5v tolerant
[15:46] <Laurenceb_> whats the voltage?
[15:46] <GroupO> it seemed ok yday, when it did
[15:46] <Laurenceb_> was
[15:46] <NigeyS> you sure?
[15:46] <GroupO> but, it didnt allow the strings send properly
[15:46] <GroupO> when it was grounded to the arduino it worked fine though
[15:47] <fsphil> not certain though
[15:47] <GroupO> i just managed to effectively take an electrical sledgehammer to the whole thing
[15:47] <NigeyS> if all youre doing is reading in the nmea strings you dont even need the arduinos Tx pin connected to the gps
[15:48] <fsphil> it needs to be put into aviation mode

[15:49] <fsphil> not without the battery backup I don't think

[15:49] <fsphil> it's safer to send it each time anyway

[15:51] <fsphil> just incase it was that that fried it
[15:51] <NigeyS> logic level converter ftw!
[15:51] <fsphil> googling around, some ublox5 boards are tolerant and some are not

[18:08] <MrCraig> Is this correct? A latitude,N is positive and ,S is negative? So I can simply read the string data and pump it with the correct sign into the HAB protocol string?
[18:09] <fsphil> yep yep
[18:10] <fsphil> longitude is negative for west, positive for east
[18:11] <MrCraig> Thanks fsphil
[18:12] <MrCraig> I'm just working on the hab protocol output now, with a little luck this evening or tomorrow I'll finally get to solder up the flight computer. (In a bit of a panic because of the deadline I've imposed on myself now)
[18:13] <MrCraig> Just over three weeks to go until launch day and the software's not even tested on live hardware yet :-/

[18:13] <fsphil> as long as you don't leave it to the night before
[18:14] <fsphil> or that morning :)
[18:15] <MrCraig> well aside from the fact that I wouldn't want to - I can't, I'm going to be at my folks place from the 4th, so really only have 2 weeks - ack!
[18:15] <MrCraig> I know you've done some last minuters
[18:16] <MrCraig> if the components and cables I've ordered arrive this week - I'll be range testing at the weekend.
[18:16] <MrCraig> I could use some help from volunteers for that - and volunteers to help track would be welcomed also.
[18:17] <fsphil> I'm always up or a bit of distant tracking.
[18:17] <MrCraig> :-)
[18:18] <MrCraig> oh that's another question. I've not yet received anything in digifligi ( :-P ) - can you tell me more about how that data can be translated to google mapped data?
[18:18] <fsphil> the dl version captures the strings it receives and uploads them to the map automatically
[18:19] <MrCraig> who hosts that map?
[18:20] <MrCraig> Do I need to beg someone to let me use their stuff - or do I install something on my own server?
[18:20] <fsphil> natrium42 hosts the map, rjharrison does the listener server
[18:21] <MrCraig> ok - so it's best to talk to each of these prior to launch and bribe with custard creams.
[18:24] <MrCraig> I'm going to run out and capture some wilder beast to eat, or better yet, purchase some pre-captured and cooked :-) be back in 15 or so. Thanks fsphil
[18:24] <fsphil> mmmm, fresh meat

[21:14] <NigeyS> thanks, you're all heart :P
[21:14] <Lunar_Lander> today I did much research in the Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society
[21:15] <Lunar_Lander> and other papers
[21:15] <mattltm> No probs, It's not like I have a few boxes I could test it on :)
[21:15] <Lunar_Lander> there are some really nice papers about balloon experiments
[21:15] <NigeyS> good point, go chuck it on a spare box and let me know how many grey hairs you get? :P
[21:15] <mattltm> lol
[21:15] <NigeyS> Lunar_Lander, yes, you'd be surprised
[21:16] <NigeyS> btw matt, what's the refresh interval on your dns servers ?
[21:16] <Lunar_Lander> I found something about an automatic sampler, air electricity experiments and so on
[21:17] <Lunar_Lander> I think that we can make instruments with high accuracy
[21:17] <Lunar_Lander> the researchers from the past also had instruments they built themselves
[21:17] <Lunar_Lander> they did not drop from the sky for them
[21:18] <mattltm> Our own DNS servers? We notify on change.
[21:18] <mattltm> But that is for internal use only.

[23:35] <MSP_> Nice!!!
[23:35] <MSP_> you - pretentiouis- perish the thought :P
[23:35] <MrCraig> I even installed my delphi compatible compiler on the phone so I can work on a virtual machine project for kicks when I'm stuck on a train or something hehe
[23:36] <MrCraig> oh believe me, 18 months ago I was living among minor celebs and the like up in belsize park (of course I couldn't really afford to live there) but pretentious I got down pat.
[23:36] <MSP_> its all i could do to get mine switched on and download an app
[23:37] <MrCraig> it's that bad? eww
[23:37] <MrCraig> Xperia X10i - 1Ghz chip is pretty sweet actually.

[23:37] <MrCraig> yeah that's a good price for a droid

[23:39] <MrCraig> lol - well you saw the recent Windows Mobile 7 in space right?
[23:39] Action: SpeedEvil stabs Elop.
[23:40] <MrCraig> I'd love to see one with a slogan "Hi Mr Gates, I saw the Mobile 7 in space, recognised the problem, and replaced it with linux."
[23:41] <MSP_> sorry was just laughin at image... just remind me about win7 one?
[23:41] <MrCraig> http://bit.ly/g8yKuj  && http://bit.ly/g0Fhsh  <- win 7
[23:47] <MSP_> ahh yes, have been away and am just getting back into swing of things
[23:48] <MSP_> thanks for the links mrcraig :)
[23:48] <MrCraig> np - I should have used them as an oppo to plug my twitter :-P
[23:49] <MSP_> lol, have only just started dipping my toe back in the tweet water after a long dry spell
[23:50] <MrCraig> yeah - to be honest I only use mine to post blog updates - using tweet deck to post to twitter, facebook, linkedin, buzz all at the same time means that I never actually have to log on to any of them and can let anyone who cares know when I make a new post.
[23:51] <MSP_> woah, proper social media mogul
[23:52] <MSP_> lol, guess that what tweetdeck and such are good at tho
[23:52] <MrCraig> not exactly - brutally transparent is what I am. I'm trying to build a small network of followers / friends on the social networks since I saw a presentation on how it can boost your career at a developer group meeting :-P
[23:53] <MrCraig> That and I think a HAB, especially a first attempt, is blogworthy.
[23:53] <SpeedEvil> Fair enough.
[23:53] <MSP_> Hmmm... interesting
[23:54] <MSP_> Well this is my first HAB
[23:55] <MSP_> what line of work are you in?
[23:55] <MrCraig> I'm a software developer for the telecoms industry.
[23:56] <MrCraig> I work on a network optimization product that's used on some major networks.
[23:56] <MSP_> blimey!
[23:56] <MrCraig> it's not so special as it sounds honestly.
[23:56] <MSP_> are we talking voip stuff
[23:56] <SpeedEvil> http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=fNJWkZL_cp0#t=1315s
[23:56] <SpeedEvil> Voice over GSM
[23:56] <SpeedEvil> Err
[23:57] <SpeedEvil> Encrypted voice over GSM-voice
[23:58] <MSP_> right chaps... to be continued, need to move... As you were
[23:58] <MSP_> lol, g'nite
[23:58] <SpeedEvil> WAve.
[23:58] MSP_ (521d82bd@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[23:58] <MrCraig> Erm, well the vendors would handle voip - we serve software to the vendors. For example, the product I work on is an analysis reporting and network optimization tool used by AT&T, I work on the front end which reports the data. The back end is our product also, and is running on the largest rack mount oracle database in the world. That all sounds impressive but what it really means is, I write SQL queries into ei
[23:59] <MrCraig> Goodnight MSP
