[19:55] <fsphil-laptop> ax.25 is weird
[19:55] <fsphil-laptop> in saying that, I've not looked at IP too closely

[20:05] <fsphil-laptop> where was x.25 used?
[20:06] <fsphil-laptop> (wikipediaing)
[20:08] <fsphil-laptop> aaah
[20:08] <fsphil-laptop> doubt I've ever used it
[20:08] <fsphil-laptop> tell a lie, looks like it was part of the ISDN standard
[20:11] <Randomskk> part of so many bloody things
[20:11] <fsphil-laptop> raspberry pi is being manufactured, at last
[20:11] <Randomskk> :D
[20:11] <Randomskk> cool
[20:11] <fsphil-laptop> expect the first batch at the end of this month
[20:12] <fsphil-laptop> moar waiting!
[20:12] <BrainDamage> at same prices of the beta auctions!
[20:12] <fsphil-laptop> lol
[20:20] <Hes> Who would be interested in implementing the base91 comment telemetry format in a balloon tracker?
[20:20] <Hes> I'd have a specification document for proofreading and comments.

[20:21] <Lunar_Lander> hello
[20:22] <fsphil-laptop> yoyo
[20:22] <Hes> fsphil-laptop: I've configured X.25! We used to run SMS traffic with an UK phone operator over X.25
[20:22] <Hes> for example
[20:22] <fsphil-laptop> Hes, I'm not flying this any time soon but I'll have a go at adding it to this test payload
[20:23] <fsphil-laptop> Darkside will probably want to try it too
[20:27] <Hes> At the time everyone was using TCP/IP, but the dinousaur telcos all used archeological protocols like X.25
[20:27] Hiena (~boreger@81.93.195.181.datatrans.hu) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[20:27] <fsphil-laptop> cheaper to keep it?
[20:28] <fsphil-laptop> or where there any advantages?
[20:29] <Hes> so we used Cisco routers to translate TCP to X.25 calls. The source X.25 address (looks like a phone number) used by my router to call out mapped to the price being charged from the recipient of the SMS. :)
[20:30] <Hes> It was slow due to high latency combined with small transmit window, even if the bandwidth of the serial line would have been OK.
[20:33] <Hes> Now, z!

[20:41] <number10_> x.25 is still used on some of the comms for the motorway control systems for message signs at the controll office
[20:42] <daveake> I once passed a speed limit sign showing "80" :)
[20:42] <number10_> naughty
[20:44] <number10_> I think some of the newer ones can show limits should we decide to change to km or be allowed to go fast

[20:47] <fsphil-laptop> I'd like to see a switch to metric, though it'll probably never happen
[20:48] <fsphil-laptop> not quite what I was expecting: http://aprs.fi/?call=a%2F2I0VIM-2
[20:51] <number10_> well at least you must be warm there
[20:51] <fsphil-laptop> hope so!
[20:53] <fsphil-laptop> that's better
[20:53] <daveake> :)
[20:53] <fsphil-laptop> haha, 193458 km/h
[20:54] <number10_> hope you get air miles for the last hop
[20:54] <daveake> NASA will be in touch
[20:54] <daveake> Quicker than Zorro :)
[20:55] <fsphil-laptop> hmm.. I must get another fsa03 soldered up

[23:05] <Laurenceb_> raspberry pi ebay is going mental
[23:06] <Laurenceb_> looks like theyll make over £15K
[23:07] <fsphil-laptop> !!!!
[23:09] <Laurenceb_> hopefully they will reduce price of first 10K by £1.5 XD
[23:10] <Lunar_Lander> raspberry starts to be like SpaceX!
[23:10] <fsphil-laptop> wonder how long it'll be before they're available, properly
[23:10] <fsphil-laptop> doubt they'll be easy to get on the first few batches
[23:11] Action: SpeedEvil wonders how many he needs.
[23:11] <fsphil-laptop> at least 5 would do...
[23:11] <SpeedEvil> I'm unsure if I eventially want to use them for lighting control and stuff
