[06:59] <nosebleedkt> lets see how many linux gurus we got here
[07:00] <nosebleedkt> i have a 64bit linux
[07:00] <nosebleedkt> however my gcc cannot produce 32bit binaries
[07:01] <nosebleedkt> I want to build a gcc which will be capable of producing 32&64 bit binaries (using the switch -m32 or -m64)
[07:01] <nosebleedkt> aka multilib
[07:01] <costyn> maybe you should visit #linux :)
[07:02] <costyn> nosebleedkt: google hasn't been any help?

[09:07] <EnHoE007> :) I mean its clear to have a gps tracker due the flight, but how is it possible to display it on map?

[09:08] <EnHoE007> thx guys! I will read them
[09:09] <daveake> The payload transmits the GPS position; a radio receives it; a PC decodes it and uploads the position to a server; the map loads the positions from the server

[09:16] <costyn> daveake: did you test for power fluctuations on your camera powersupply when the camera takes pictures? Or is the max current drawn from the AA's not significant?
[09:18] <kokey> daveake: what do you hook your scanner up to in 'the heap'?
[09:18] <daveake> That board has a step-up that runs from very low voltages. I tested by leaving the camera running with a new set of AAs. I got 6 hours before the camera dropped out. The tracker kept going for another 3 hours.
[09:19] <costyn> nice
[09:19] <costyn> UpuWork: sent you one of my troublesome GPSes. Should arrive next week somewhere
[09:20] <daveake> Re the "heap", at the mo the scanner isn't hooked up - just a spare for whoever is sitting in the passenger seat with a laptop/netbook
[09:20] <daveake> When I get it back from the garage (service/MOT today), I'll finish wiring up the Yaesu. I've got power, audio and UHF all going into the back of it now.
[09:21] <costyn> going to DIN mount it?
[09:21] <daveake> It is
[09:21] <costyn> ah
[09:21] <kokey> ah ok, I was offered an old smaller ibm thinkpad so I might use that
[09:21] <daveake> Well, it's kinda loose in a plastic DIN mount box
[09:21] <daveake> Surprisingly there doesn't seem to be a proper DIN mount holder for it
[09:22] <costyn> strange, with its dimensions you'd think it was designed that way
[09:22] <daveake> Yup
[09:22] <kokey> but perhaps I should look into getting some kind of x86 'tablet'
[09:22] <daveake> I was quite surprised - I thought the radio shops and ebay would be full of them
[09:23] <daveake> I've made up a PL259-BNC cable so I can connect the magmount to the back, rather than clutter up the front
[09:23] <cuddykid> morning
[09:23] <costyn> nice
[09:23] <daveake> Similar with the audio - there's a fixed level "line out" at the back, confusingly labelled as "data out" in the manual
[09:23] <costyn> heh
[09:24] <daveake> Takes a standard PS/2 plug. I just used an old keyboard extension cable
[09:24] <costyn> I've often wondered what it was for
[09:24] <daveake> Well that's one thing
[09:24] <costyn> seeing as the ACC is for actual data
[09:25] <daveake> The nice thing is being fixed level, you can use the volume control without affecting it. So you can silence the rtty or have it turned up - handy when you're trying to find the payload and want to listen for it.
[09:25] <gonzo_> yep it's data comms. Mainly for connecting a TNC, as it also has a direct FM from the dioscriminator
[09:25] <costyn> gonzo_: define TNC?
[09:26] <gonzo_> terminal node controler. An AX25 hardware moden
[09:26] <gonzo_> modem
[09:26] <costyn> ah ok
[09:27] <gonzo_> it has the '1200bd' outputm, whioch is just an audio feed before the vol ctrl
[09:27] <gonzo_> so works on FM/SSB etc
[09:28] <gonzo_> the '9600bd' output is FM only and is directkly from the discriminator, so you get the deviation voltage before any audio filtering
[09:28] <gonzo_> whoch you need for higher speed AX25
[09:29] <gonzo_> btw, when you use the PC to tume the 817, do you connect via the ACC socket?
[09:30] <costyn> gonzo_: I do yes
[09:31] <gonzo_> what PC prog do you use to command it?
[09:31] <daveake> dl-fldigi will auto-tune it, using hamlib (IIRC)
[09:31] <costyn> err... I can't remember, I installed it once, it just works
[09:32] <gonzo_> not tried so just interested
[09:32] <costyn> gonzo_: it's on my windows machine at home; i can look it up tonight
[09:33] <costyn> daveake: but dl-fldigi will only retune if the signal falls off one of the waterfall right?
[09:33] <gonzo_> no rush, just being nesey
[09:33] <gonzo_> nosey
[09:33] <gonzo_> ta dave. (only just seen your reply, vnc slow to refresh the screen)
[09:33] <daveake> Well, it keeps it inside a band that you specify
[09:34] <daveake> So it'll re-centre before it gets to the edge
[09:34] <gonzo_> so it will steer the radio as part of the AFC. Nice!
[09:34] <daveake> Yes, just so
[09:35] <gonzo_> ideal for chase when you don't want to be distracted from driving
[09:35] <daveake> Exactly
[09:35] <costyn> daveake: ah ok, I'll have to try that
[09:35] <costyn> gonzo_: ah yes, Ham Radio Deluxe
[09:35] <daveake> I bought a USB "CAT" cable for mine. Plugs into the ACC socket
[09:35] <gonzo_> cheers costyn
[09:36] <costyn> gonzo_: http://www.hrdsoftwarellc.com/default.html
[09:36] <costyn> gonzo_: there's a buy option, but that's only for support. you can just download a fully functional version off the site

[13:23] <eroomde> which we definitely didn;t get back
[13:26] <Randomskk> :P
[13:26] <Randomskk> yes I recall that budget line item
[13:26] <Randomskk> but it was an order of magnitude smaller than say the rocket fuel which we also didn't get back

[15:43] <Upu_London> jgrahamc I think at last count there are 4 payloads there so another one won't cause an issue :)
[15:44] <cuddykid> hiya Upu_London - quick question - wonder if you would be able to increase bandwidth again?! Had a surge of visitors over the past 2 days and hit the limit again! No worries if you can't :)
[15:44] <jgrahamc> OK. I'll see if I can stuff it in my pannier then.
[15:44] <Upu_London> hit it again ?
[15:44] <Upu_London> wow 1 sec
[15:45] <Upu_London> see if I have access from here
[15:45] <cuddykid> Upu_London: yep! not sure why the unbelievable surge in the past 2 days - it did appear in a main french newspaper so perhaps that might be why
[15:45] <Upu_London> whats your user name ?

[18:58] <Lunar_Lander> how comes?
[18:58] <costyn> if you adhere to the ICAO rules they let you do what you want
[18:58] <Hix> them Craazy dutch :)
[18:59] <Hix> hey costyn, i played with that video overlay last weekend. managed to get a ficticious GPS overlay from a csv file
[18:59] <Hix> in Adobe After Effects
[19:00] <Lunar_Lander> XD costyn
[19:00] <costyn> there are rules of course: payload has to stay below 4kg, less than 4 m^3 of He and the ballon has to be smaller than 2 meters in diameter at launch
[19:00] <costyn> Hix: cool, I actually made a script which produces subtitles from csv file for Radim
[19:00] <Lunar_Lander> ah the balloon itself?
[19:00] <Lunar_Lander> not like the UK rule that allows for foil balloons
[19:00] <Hix> <4Kg :D I may be going to NL with a big f-off Nikon payload :D
[19:01] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[19:01] <costyn> Lunar_Lander: it only has to be that small at launch
[19:01] <Hix> costyn, interesting, how does it work?
[19:01] <costyn> Hix: https://github.com/costyn/gps-csv2srt
[19:01] <Lunar_Lander> hm
[19:01] <Lunar_Lander> that means certain limits
[19:01] <Hix> cheers dude
[19:01] <Lunar_Lander> let me check burst calculator
[19:02] <costyn> Lunar_Lander: actually it says 2meters height; a 1600 will be taller at launch
[19:02] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[19:02] <Lunar_Lander> oh I can't access the burst calculator from habhub
[19:03] <Lunar_Lander> I just get the telekom page that says that the page doesn't exist anymore
[19:03] <costyn> Hix: it's still very ugly though. beta version :)
[19:03] <costyn> Hix: (and don't tell anyone here, but it's written in P.E.R.L.)
[19:03] <Hix> I'll try and get something to show you... yeah saw the pl extension
[19:04] <Lunar_Lander> costyn, that means 1600 may not be used?
[19:04] <Hix> just fill and launch from a trench
[19:04] <costyn> Lunar_Lander: well if you really want to abide by the letter of the law, but really, there's not going to be an official of the air-police at launch to measure the height of the balloon
[19:04] <Hix> <1600mm above ground level then
[19:04] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[19:05] <DrLuke> just keep in mind that if it enters germany post-launch you still need to abide by german law :)
[19:05] <costyn> yep
[19:05] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:05] <costyn> it says that too in the rules
[19:05] <DrLuke> actually cross country flights are even more complicated
[19:06] <Hix> cut down, ditch payload before border
[19:06] <DrLuke> you'll need a flight plan and whatnot
[19:06] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:07] <Lunar_Lander> how was it when Apex Alpha drifted across Europe?
[19:07] <Lunar_Lander> I don't think they filed a flight plan beforehand
[19:07] <DrLuke> then the flight was illegal :)
[19:07] <DrLuke> I mean, usually nobody will care
[19:07] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[19:07] <DrLuke> but IF anyone starts to care...
[19:07] <costyn> DrLuke: yes, it's nice to be legal
[19:07] <costyn> when the shit hits the fan
[19:07] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[19:07] <Lunar_Lander> I think so too
[19:08] <DrLuke> just keep in mind that fines are open ended
[19:08] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[19:08] <DrLuke> and it's suck to have a big debt or even prison time over a HAB
[19:08] <Hix> cut down
[19:08] <DrLuke> it'd *
[19:09] <costyn> not sure what you'd have to do to get prison time from something your balloon did
[19:09] <costyn> worst I can think of is it landing on a highway
[19:10] <DrLuke> kill someone
[19:10] <DrLuke> just imagine your payload hits a car and the driver gets scared and accidentally drives into a crowd
[19:10] <costyn> not sure how to with 600g in a styrofoam box?
[19:10] <costyn> ok I guess
[19:10] <DrLuke> it can happen
[19:11] <costyn> more likely is: what was that? <crunch!>
[19:11] <DrLuke> yeah, of course
[19:12] <gb73d> ive been watchin the apollo tv docus

[19:13] <costyn> Hix: so as you can see, the script is very basic in functionality
[19:13] <gb73d> i am a v lucky man
[19:13] <costyn> gb73d: very cool. the documentaries are always awe inspiring
[19:14] <gb73d> yes ty esp Sat V launch !
[19:14] <Lunar_Lander> hello mclane
[19:14] <eroomde> i really wish i could have seen a sat V launch
[19:14] <DrLuke> the greates adventure of my time was the curiosity landing
[19:14] <DrLuke> ^
[19:15] <DrLuke> must be one hell of a feeling in your stomach
[19:15] <eroomde> having got my head around rocket engines a bit more this year, it makes them all the more amazing to me
[19:15] <Hiena> Geee...Anybody has experience with android sensor class programming?
[19:15] <gb73d> curiosity was a 100% success
[19:15] <DrLuke> I've been at the ILA this year, and ROSKOSMOS displayed a 4 meter high rocket engine
[19:15] <gb73d> like Apolo11
[19:16] <gb73d> true
[19:16] <DrLuke> sadly it didn't say what it belonged to
[19:16] <Darkside> eroomde: how about the big russian ones?
[19:16] <gb73d> vostok
[19:16] <DrLuke> and it's incredible how tiny the actual burn chamber is
[19:16] <Darkside> aren't some of them size comparable?
[19:16] SelfishMan (~SelfishMa@office.rabidmonkey.org) joined #highaltitude.
[19:17] <eroomde> the russians do actually have the most powerful rocket engines ever flown
[19:17] <gb73d> nope sat V was largest rocket and fastest
[19:17] <eroomde> they are hecka impressive
[19:17] <gb73d> need to be
[19:17] <DrLuke> rocket and rocket engine is a difference
[19:17] <gb73d> 5 motors
[19:17] <Lunar_Lander> eroomde, you mean the engines of the Energia rocket?
[19:17] <gb73d> 3 stages
[19:18] <gb73d> landing on Mars
[19:18] <gb73d> manned
[19:18] <Hix> didn't NASA buy the tech fro saturn from Russia
[19:18] <gb73d> that will be ur day
[19:18] <DrLuke> thinking about the Sat V it's kind of mindboggling it even was able to fly
[19:18] <eroomde> yes i'm talking about engines
[19:18] <Hix> *for
[19:18] <DrLuke> Hix: no, Werner von Braun was the head behind it (afaik)
[19:19] <eroomde> the russian engines are i think the most powerful, certainly the most thrust per unit mass
[19:19] <eroomde> i.e. power dense
[19:19] <gb73d> biggest firework
[19:19] <Hix> V2 dude?
[19:19] <DrLuke> yeah
[19:19] <eroomde> and they are some pretty remarkable bits of engineering
[19:19] <Lunar_Lander> mclane, are you there?
[19:19] <DrLuke> did the russians actually have any deaths in their space ventures besides that one capsule where the parachute didn't open?
[19:19] <eroomde> Hix: the US have got some engines from russia but that's more recent
[19:20] <Lunar_Lander> Soyuz 1 that is DrLuke
[19:20] <Hix> thought so
[19:20] <Lunar_Lander> Soyuz 11 was also fatal
[19:20] <eroomde> DrLuke: yeah there was alsmot certainly a lot of stuff early on that we don;t hear about
[19:20] <Lunar_Lander> when the modules separated, a vent valve opened draining the descent module of air
[19:20] <Hix> wasnt there a cadaver launched
[19:20] <Lunar_Lander> so the three cosmonauts died
[19:21] <Lunar_Lander> Hix, they only launched dogs and some sort of crash test dummys
[19:21] <DrLuke> ouch
[19:21] <DrLuke> seems tragic
[19:21] SelfishMan (~SelfishMa@office.rabidmonkey.org) left irc: Ping timeout: 256 seconds
[19:21] <eroomde> certainly both space programs have used cadavas for tests quite a bit
[19:21] <DrLuke> man, I love the russian space program
[19:21] <eroomde> again it's not particularly publicised
[19:21] SelfishMan (~SelfishMa@office.rabidmonkey.org) joined #highaltitude.
[19:21] <eroomde> but even today they do it
[19:21] <DrLuke> their crafts looks so amazing

[19:22] <Darkside> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N-1_rocket
[19:22] <Hix> eroomde, not really good PR :)
[19:22] <eroomde> indeed
[19:22] <Darkside> eroomde: is that the one you're thinking of?
[19:22] <Darkside> the huge first stage
[19:22] <Lunar_Lander> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energia
[19:22] <eroomde> Darkside: not the RD-170 is the engine
[19:22] <Hix> biab
[19:22] <Darkside> bloody hell, 30 main engines
[19:22] <eroomde> again, engine rather than whole rocket
[19:23] <eroomde> i'm not so interested in the whole rocket bit. engines are the fun part :)
[19:23] <eroomde> s/not the /no the/
[19:23] <Lunar_Lander> eroomde, so you mean the Zenit which had been the boosters of Energia?
[19:23] <DrLuke> I hope to one day be employed in the space industry
[19:23] <DrLuke> that's my goal after university
[19:24] <eroomde> Lunar_Lander: yes
[19:24] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[19:24] <eroomde> DrLuke: go for it
[19:24] <eroomde> it's fun
[19:24] <Lunar_Lander> and Atlas V uses RD-180 afaik
[19:24] <DrLuke> it absolutely is
[19:24] <Lunar_Lander> eroomde, btw the burst calculator website is dead I think
[19:24] <DrLuke> it's also a pretty safe job, as space will always be relevant
[19:25] <eroomde> works for me Lunar_Lander
[19:25] <eroomde> DrLuke: I'm hoping so
[19:25] <eroomde> though i am doing rocket engine research
[19:25] <eroomde> which is more risky

[19:28] <DrLuke> not yet
[19:29] <DrLuke> I think everything is amazing
[19:29] <Lunar_Lander> and Atlas V uses RD-180 afaik
[19:29] <DrLuke> but if I had to pick one it'd be satellites probing other planets/bodies
[19:30] <eroomde> in principle that's super exciting
[19:30] <eroomde> in practice it's usually the worst kind of space agency slowly, beurocracy, rescoping, paper-pushing upsettingness
[19:30] <eroomde> i used to work on ExoMars
[19:30] <eroomde> quit that once i realised what it was actually like

[19:31] <DrLuke> oh
[19:31] <Lunar_Lander> and Atlas V uses RD-180 afaik
[19:31] <DrLuke> eroomde: so how did you end up working at ESA?
[19:32] <eroomde> well, ESA is a slippery thing to define
[19:32] <eroomde> it's basically a big project office, with a large pot of money
[19:32] <eroomde> in theory they are project managers
[19:32] <eroomde> but basically they figure out what they want to do with the money, then invite industry to bid for things
[19:32] <DrLuke> oh
[19:33] <eroomde> so like, manufacture the cruise stage for exomars, manufactur the rover, purchase a launch from ariannespace, or whatever
[19:33] <eroomde> so really ESA is actually a huge number of large engineering firms, usually the big military-industrial ones like Thales Alenia and BAe and Astrium and so on
[19:33] <eroomde> and thousands of little specialist consultancies
[19:33] <eroomde> i worked for one of the little consultancies
[19:34] <eroomde> they were the people who designed the parachute landing system for huygens
[19:34] <DrLuke> ah
[19:34] <DrLuke> awesome
[19:34] <eroomde> and are parachute specialists within ESA
[19:34] <Lunar_Lander> btw did they finally decide what ExoMars will be like?
[19:34] <gb73d> manned landing on mars looking forward to that 1
[19:34] <eroomde> and so helping with the landing bit of exomars
[19:34] <eroomde> Lunar_Lander: no
[19:34] <DrLuke> so, aren't engineers excempt from all that bureaucracy?
[19:34] <eroomde> i doubt they ever will
[19:34] <eroomde> DrLuke: no, absolutely not
[19:34] <Lunar_Lander> so exomars will never fly?
[19:34] <eroomde> becase esa don;t really project manage
[19:35] <DrLuke> ah
[19:35] <eroomde> they will split something like exomars up among 4 or 5 big companies in 4 or 5 different countries (everyone has to get a slice of the cake)
[19:35] <DrLuke> I can see how that can lead to problems
[19:35] <eroomde> then those companies will spend millions of euros writing microsoft word documents about how the delays are one of the other company's fault
[19:35] <eroomde> and nothing will be agreed or get done
[19:36] <eroomde> it's the worst model for engineering I have ever encountered in all my life
[19:36] <eroomde> no, it might be slightly better for non flagship projects
[19:36] <eroomde> that are not so big and political
[19:36] <DrLuke> do you know anything about how it's at nasa?
[19:36] <eroomde> all the little self-contained research studies and smaller budget things and so on, although they are still a paperwork monster at any level
[19:36] <eroomde> but for the big stuff, it's paralysingly bad
[19:37] <eroomde> DrLuke: nopt much better at nasa
[19:37] <DrLuke> so in your time there, did you get any engineering work done?
[19:37] <eroomde> but nasa is again hard to pin down
[19:37] <eroomde> DrLuke: very little
[19:37] <Lunar_Lander> so exomars will never fly?
[19:37] <eroomde> Lunar_Lander: who knows
[19:37] <eroomde> i don;t even know what it is now
[19:37] <DrLuke> damn, you're bursting my bubble right now :(
[19:37] <eroomde> it suddenly became 2 missions in 2016 and 2018
[19:37] <eroomde> with a demo lander, basically landing a brick
[19:37] <eroomde> then landing the rover
[19:37] <eroomde> then a brick and a rover
[19:37] <eroomde> then none
[19:38] <SpeedEvil> see the costs of spacex vs NASA development
[19:38] <eroomde> i just don;t know or care
[19:38] <eroomde> DrLuke: no, there is light
[19:38] <eroomde> well, there is for me
[19:38] <eroomde> i am working on skylon
[19:38] <eroomde> specifically the sabre engine
[19:38] <eroomde> with a very small team of bright people
[19:38] <gb73d> ur reaction engines ?
[19:39] <eroomde> i am ed
[19:39] <gb73d> i am BIS member
[19:39] <eroomde> ah grand
[19:39] <SpeedEvil> how large is reaction engines (people)
[19:39] <gb73d> i know K Long
[19:39] <DrLuke> holy cow
[19:39] <Lunar_Lander> SpaceX never can hold schedules
[19:39] <eroomde> Yes, I've bumped into him a few times at BIS things
[19:39] <eroomde> were you at the people and propellants thing in cosford last year?
[19:39] <gb73d> nope
[19:39] <SpeedEvil> Lunar_Lander: hard to see if it's them or NASA from the outside
[19:40] <eroomde> DrLuke: anyway, it's really exciting, and among some of the most interesting engineering going on in the world at the moment
[19:40] <gb73d> last thing i did was BIS at RAL about solar monitoring
[19:40] <SpeedEvil> :-)
[19:40] <DrLuke> I envy you :)
[19:40] <Lunar_Lander> SpeedEvil, but Musk always talks about going to Mars and building huge rockets but never gets ahead

[19:42] <DrLuke> well, if you need a german EE engineer in 7 or 8 years, you'll know where to find me :P

[19:42] <Hix> oooh man, thats lamew
[19:42] <Hix> lame
[19:42] <eroomde> DrLuke: so, we do all the EE in house
[19:42] <Hix> I can use solidworks but it's a nit pony
[19:43] <Hix> bit
[19:43] <eroomde> we have some really nice home-brew datalogging gear for the static testing, and are building some really cool stuff i'd love to talk about for a project i'd love to talk about
[19:43] <SpeedEvil> -
[19:43] <eroomde> but sadly i have to be vague cos zuesbot logs everything

[19:44] <Hix> they could make a proper f-off jettle :)
[19:44] <DrLuke> Oh I will
[19:45] <SpeedEvil> is all available public ally?
[19:45] <SpeedEvil> talk
[19:45] <eroomde> yeah being streamed
[19:45] <Hix> try not to scratch your balls too much whilst talking eroomde
[19:45] <Hix> Upu_London, said he's putting it on youtube
[19:45] <Hix> Ed Balls :D
[19:46] <DrLuke> http://www.wimp.com/prototypeengine/
[19:46] <eroomde> the talk is entirely just the hobby stuff we've been doing after hours at work. but there have been a few fun ideas that have come from the hobby stuff that are finding applications in actual stuff. which is all i can really say. it's annoying cos it's damn cool
[19:46] <DrLuke> I knew the shape of the engine was familiar
[19:46] <eroomde> heh
[19:46] <eroomde> i like that vid
[19:47] <eroomde> you can see some of the stuff i've built
[19:47] <eroomde> aswell as actual skylon hardware, i made the little box that turns that viper jet engine on
[19:47] <eroomde> it previously had some horrible old 1960s rolls royce old testment startup system
[19:48] <Hix> SR71++
[19:48] <eroomde> replaced it with our own igniter (oxygen hydrogen jet into combustion chamber) and startup sequence
[19:48] <eroomde> i love the startup noise
[19:49] <eroomde> also the rain you can see is from the steam evaporator
[19:49] <eroomde> not the sky
[19:49] <DrLuke> the video is a bit disappointing because the engine doesn't actually run
[19:49] <Hix> refined kerosene is smell porn
[19:49] <DrLuke> oh
[19:49] <eroomde> DrLuke: the jet engine does briefly
[19:50] <eroomde> but that's not the sabre or anything, the jet engine is just to provide some suction to test the precooler
[19:50] <Hix> see when you use solidworks the engine comes out bent
[19:50] <Hix> ;p
[19:51] <DrLuke> oh
[19:51] <eroomde> sabre engine is the next job
[19:52] <DrLuke> so, right now you've only got that cooling system?
[19:52] <eroomde> yep
[19:52] <eroomde> that is the hardest bit
[19:52] <eroomde> we think :)
[19:52] <DrLuke> cool (no pun intended :P)
[19:52] <eroomde> well, it is the most unknown, most 'new' bit
[19:52] <DrLuke> ok it was intended
[19:53] <eroomde> the rest of the engine is better understood and proven
[19:53] <DrLuke> This is really exciting
[19:53] <eroomde> but the precooler is a step above anything, in terms of power density, that has ever been attempted before
[19:53] <DrLuke> if it really lives up to it's promise, it could truly revolutionize space travel
[19:53] <eroomde> if a domestic house water boiler could use the same technology as our precooler, it would only need to be the size of a box of matches
[19:54] <Hix> its kin quick for that temp drop
[19:54] <eroomde> yes
[19:54] <DrLuke> wow
[19:54] <eroomde> >1000K in 10ms

[19:57] <eroomde> i think the power density is, just trying to sanity check this in my head
[19:57] <eroomde> but yes
[19:57] <eroomde> i think it's about 1 GW/m^3
[19:57] <DrLuke> holy crap
[19:58] <DrLuke> are you sure you didn't just drop magic powder in there somewhere?
[19:58] <eroomde> this is where we get in trouble
[19:58] <eroomde> if we say anything
[19:58] <DrLuke> Yeah, I understand
[19:59] <DrLuke> NDAs are there for a reason
[19:59] <fsphil> chemical x
[19:59] <DrLuke> more like chemical cool

[20:01] <Lunar_Lander> balloons are cool!
[20:02] <eroomde> DrLuke: i don't know for sure but there might be options for summer internships if you're interested
[20:03] <DrLuke> That would be most awesome
[20:03] <DrLuke> I have to do an internship during my bachelor
[20:04] <eroomde> well, drop me an email sometime and i'll ask around
[20:04] <DrLuke> let me check really quick

[20:28] <KT5TK_QRL> Will you have some video stream from the UKHAS 2012 conference for us DX listeners?
[20:30] <fsphil> indeed KT5TK_QRL
[20:30] <KT5TK_QRL> How can we access it?
[20:30] <KT5TK_QRL> Sounds great
[20:30] <fsphil> it will be streamed on batc.tv
[20:31] <fsphil> exact url seems to have esscaped me
[20:31] <KT5TK_QRL> ok, will it be in the live events list?
[20:32] <fsphil> http://www.batc.tv/streams/ukhas
[20:32] <fsphil> that I'm not sure, but that link should take you straight to it
[20:32] <KT5TK_QRL> Ah, ok. Will check tomorrow in the very early morning.
[20:33] <KT5TK_QRL> It's 4:30 am for me in Texas I guess
[20:33] <fsphil> it's no fun being up that early :)

[20:35] <fsphil> it'll all be recorded too
[20:35] <KT5TK_QRL> talks I mean
[20:36] <KT5TK_QRL> Yes, but only live is authentic ...

[20:48] <DrLuke> I just hope the recording quality will be better this time, I've watched some old ones and sadly the audio was quite bad
[20:49] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[20:49] <Lunar_Lander> and this in the days of HD cameras
[20:49] <eroomde> i'll try and speak loudly and clearly
[20:50] <DrLuke> scream if you have to! :P
[20:50] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[20:50] <fsphil> the audio in the HD recordings where bad, the camera was at the back of the room
[20:50] <DrLuke> the problem wasn't the people talking, but rather the camera
[20:50] <Lunar_Lander> btw do you want to have a laugh about something completely different?
[20:50] <DrLuke> always
[20:51] griffonbot (~griffonbo@kraken.habhub.org) joined #highaltitude.
[20:51] <Lunar_Lander> do you know the simulators by astragon?
[20:51] <DrLuke> nope
[20:51] <Lunar_Lander> like bus simulator and train simulator and trash truck simulator
[20:51] <Lunar_Lander> that's good
[20:51] <DrLuke> aaah
[20:51] <DrLuke> those
[20:51] <DrLuke> yeah
[20:51] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[20:51] <Lunar_Lander> in the field of buses there is something much better, called OMSI
[20:51] <Lunar_Lander> Omnibus Simulator
[20:52] <Lunar_Lander> and someone from the UK has a go at that one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PKgYV_W_SA&feature=relmfu
[20:52] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[20:52] <DrLuke> :)
[20:53] <Darkside> i still think desert bus is better

[20:54] <eroomde> sorry to butt in
[20:54] <eroomde> are we talking about bus simulators here?
[20:54] <Laurenceb_> i dont need bus simulators
[20:55] <Laurenceb_> i catch one to work
[20:55] <Laurenceb_> maybe i could make a real life simulator
[20:55] <Lunar_Lander> it's hilarious when he talks about the side window at 3:20 xD
[20:55] <fsphil> better than life
[20:55] <eroomde> "23:40 best part!"
[20:55] <eroomde> is this a joke?
[20:55] <jonsowman> I2C what you did there.
[20:56] <DrLuke> I love the window
[20:56] <Lunar_Lander> 23:52 is the part
[20:56] <Laurenceb_> nerd^3
[20:56] <eroomde> what the hell is going on?
[20:57] <eroomde> is this like 'the game' or are we actually talking about bus simulators?
[20:57] <Lunar_Lander> xD he noticed in the last second that the game is in germany
[20:57] <Lunar_Lander> we are talking about this particular "Let's Play"

[20:57] <fsphil> sense too
[20:58] <DrLuke> lunar_lander derailed this channel
[20:58] <eroomde> but
[20:58] <eroomde> someone has written a BUS SIMULATOR?
[20:58] <Lunar_Lander> yeah, and OMSI took 4 years to develop afaik
[20:58] <DanielRichman> err
[20:58] <DanielRichman> http://www.excalibur-publishing.com/garbagetruck.htm
[20:58] <fsphil> the best part is the bit where you don't load it
[20:59] <fsphil> the only winning move is not to play
[20:59] <eroomde> what the hell?
[20:59] <Lunar_Lander> DanielRichman, yeah those are crap
[20:59] <DanielRichman> who cares, it's a garbage truck
[20:59] <eroomde> i feel like everything i thought I knew about the universe is a lie
[20:59] <Lunar_Lander> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnpWQfnolIU&feature=plcp
[20:59] <Lunar_Lander> the beginning is reminding me of Robot Wars
[20:59] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[20:59] <DrLuke> OMSI looks awesome
[20:59] <DrLuke> I kinda want to try it now
[20:59] <Lunar_Lander> at 10 seconds
[21:00] <eroomde> THIS IS TERRIBLE
[21:00] <eroomde> STOP TALKING ABOUT IT
[21:00] <eroomde> I WANT THIS ERASED
[21:01] <Lunar_Lander> XD it reminds me right of great robots like Chaos 2
[21:01] <eroomde> if someone talks about simulating cutting the grass again i will go into kill mode
[21:01] <fsphil> this topic just going to end up going round and round
[21:01] <Lunar_Lander> Chaos 2 was awesome
[21:01] <Lunar_Lander> DrLuke, do you remember Robot Wars?
[21:01] <DrLuke> nope

[21:19] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[21:20] <Lunar_Lander> let's do like a HAB chasing Bus
[21:25] <DrLuke> party bus
[21:25] <jcoxon> everyone set for tomorrow
[21:25] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[21:25] <fsphil> sorta :)
[21:26] <DrLuke> Well, I'm looking forward to seeing the stream
[21:26] <jcoxon> fsphil, you over yet?
[21:26] <fsphil> jcoxon, mind if I use one of your pics from pegasus vii?
[21:26] <DrLuke> Maybe I'll be there in person next year
[21:26] <fsphil> jcoxon: indeed! sitting in a hotel atm
[21:26] <jcoxon> fsphil, where is your hotel?
[21:26] <jcoxon> fsphil, no problem
[21:26] <jcoxon> sstv pic is it?
[21:26] <fsphil> yea
[21:26] <Lunar_Lander> hey I got two ideas for space exploration
[21:27] <fsphil> I'm in Cambertown is it?
[21:27] <fsphil> Camberwell
[21:27] <Lunar_Lander> we need a probe to land on Olympus Mons on mars
[21:27] <jcoxon> fsphil, you should have said
[21:27] <jcoxon> we could have gone to the pub!
[21:27] <Lunar_Lander> what do you think about that?
[21:28] <fsphil> ack! you're not far then?
[21:28] <jcoxon> about 2 miles
[21:28] <jcoxon> bit late now
[21:28] <DrLuke> it's never too late to get piss drunk :)
[21:28] <Lunar_Lander> XD!
[21:28] <fsphil> yes it is :)
[21:28] <fsphil> I'm only 10% awake at this point
[21:28] <Lunar_Lander> we need a probe to land on Olympus Mons on mars
[21:29] <Lunar_Lander> what do you think about that?
[21:29] <DrLuke> why
[21:29] <Lunar_Lander> because we need to explore it
[21:29] <DrLuke> why
[21:29] <Lunar_Lander> it is the biggest mountain in the solar system
[21:30] <DrLuke> you can do that from space
[21:30] <Lunar_Lander> yeah but if you land on it, Carl Sagan would be so proud
[21:30] <DrLuke> but there are more interesting places to land at
[21:31] <Lunar_Lander> hm
[21:31] <Lunar_Lander> ok the second idea
[21:31] <Lunar_Lander> send a probe into the sun!
[21:31] <fsphil> you'd better do it at night or it will melt
[21:31] <DrLuke> there's no material that could withstand the heat, besides there's nothing interesting in the sun either
[21:31] <Lunar_Lander> hm
[21:32] <DrLuke> atleast nothing that we don't know of already
[21:32] <Lunar_Lander> so a solar impactor is not a good idea?
[21:32] <jcoxon> Lunar_Lander, are you drunk?
[21:32] <Lunar_Lander> I mean they are planning Solar Probe Plus now
[21:32] <Lunar_Lander> jcoxon, no, last thing I drank was a cup of tea
[21:36] <Lunar_Lander> jcoxon, why are you asking?
[21:38] <jcoxon> just a little crazy ideas
[21:38] <DrLuke> :)
[21:38] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[21:39] <Lunar_Lander> well you didn't ask about my idea of making a movie in which a guy steals a bus and then discovers that the bus is an intelligent machine that fights villains
[21:39] <fsphil> Any word from Dan, has he reached blighty?
[21:39] <jcoxon> yeah he is here
[21:39] <jcoxon> he is staying with me this weekend
[21:40] <natrium42> dan's the man
[21:40] <Lunar_Lander> jcoxon, greet him from me
[21:40] <Lunar_Lander> and the sequel will be called
