[01:36] <arko> nice
[01:37] <Zuph> Very nice. Visit the intrepid?
[01:37] <eroomde> yep today
[01:37] <eroomde> enterprise damaged to sandy so closed off :(
[01:38] <eroomde> but sr71 cheered me up again
[01:38] <eroomde> flickr.com/eroomde for 5 arbitrary photos from today
[01:39] <Zuph> Shame. I was last there before they brought in the enterprise.
[01:39] <Zuph> Will be making a trip to DC when they open their shuttle exhibit, with any luck.
[01:40] <eroomde> cool
[01:40] <eroomde> at the smithsonian?
[01:40] <Zuph> Yep
[01:41] <eroomde> would like to visit
[01:41] <eroomde> had a tv crew from smitghsonian visit about 1wk ago
[01:41] <Zuph> I've never visited the Udvar-Hazy center, but the main museum is incredible.
[01:42] <eroomde> would like to visit verymuch
[01:43] <Zuph> heh, only a few hours by train south of you :-p
[01:43] <arko> smithsonian has the apollo 11 capsule and suits
[01:43] <arko> i would love to see one day
[01:44] <eroomde> hmmm
[01:44] <eroomde> washington - chaigo is an easy train ride
[01:45] <Zuph> heh
[01:45] <Zuph> Famous last words.
[01:45] <eroomde> chicago*
[01:45] <eroomde> and ny - washington is a direct train too
[01:45] <eroomde> i could visit!
[01:46] <Zuph> Take a plane. DC and Chicago are lucky enough to have trains running to the airport.
[01:46] <eroomde> no
[01:46] <eroomde> boring
[01:47] <eroomde> i like slow travel
[01:47] <eroomde> i hate planes
[01:47] <eroomde> too hermetic. like being teleported
[01:47] <eroomde> you dont get to see the world slowly change
[01:47] <Zuph> In that case, I can assure you that the train between DC and Chicago will be slow.
[01:47] <eroomde> i am doing chicago to SF on the train too
[01:48] <Zuph> I would like to do that trip someday.
[01:48] <eroomde> it's 18hrs
[01:48] <eroomde> dc chicago
[01:48] <eroomde> that's a meaty novel :)
[01:50] <Zuph> On time 62% of the time :-p
[01:50] <eroomde> also
[01:50] <eroomde> i wish neither to have a bath or fall asleep
[01:50] <Zuph> They took the average delay off their on-time performance page, I see.
[01:50] <eroomde> i wish to have a piss
[01:51] <eroomde> so why do i get corrected when i ask for directions to the toilet?

[11:29] <daveake> I have to go out soon, but of Vortex4 stops again which it may well do during descent, could someone with an SDR go searching for it? I suspect it's changing frequency (maybe by 100kHz or so) rather than stopping.
[11:29] <navrac_work> is it just me or are the colours wrong on spacenear?

[11:38] <CHRISG7OGX> vortex1
[11:38] <CHRISG7OGX> is there a particular one that we have been asked to look for?
[11:38] <Vortex-Chase_> we have very clear packets on vortex main
[11:39] <junderwood_M0JCU> CHRISG7OGX, please just pick any payload which looks lonely
[11:39] <GMT> I'm getting good decodes on VORTEX on .077
[11:39] <Geoff-G8DHE> V3 is good in Sussex as well as V, helioss is very poor copy
[11:39] <CHRISG7OGX> good that's ok then. some frequency wavering here
[11:39] <junderwood_M0JCU> HelioSS doesn't have many friends at the moment!
[11:39] <junderwood_M0JCU> (and is a pig to decode)
[11:40] <CHRISG7OGX> lol ok will do sort of sidle up and ask if she wants a drink!
[11:40] <helioss_chase> every so often it gets drowned by white noise
[11:40] <Geoff-G8DHE> I think shes had too many already!
[11:42] <CHRISG7OGX> faster shorter tx? 434.645?

[11:43] <junderwood_M0JCU> helioss_chase, you should press on to Daventry
[11:44] <helioss_chase> doing so - can you update the map
[11:44] <junderwood_M0JCU> live predictor should now be correct for Vortex - thanks Upu
[11:44] <junderwood_M0JCU> helioss_chase, will do
[11:44] <CHRISG7OGX> nav rac work tks for baud rate can see her at the bar now what is shift?

[19:33] <costyn> http://pastebin.com/UPEsrwBV very simple sketch, but when I look at the serial output, it's alternating randomly between 0 and 1
[19:34] <chrisstubbs> costyn are you plannin on using the internal resistors?
[19:35] <chrisstubbs> I have used pinMode(0, INPUT_PULLUP); before to set the internal pull up resistors
[19:35] <chrisstubbs> then short the pin to ground to turn it on/off
[19:35] <costyn> chrisstubbs: well I thought writing LOW would pull it low, but it just disables the pull-up resistor

[19:36] <chrisstubbs> did on a MEGA644 at least
[19:36] <costyn> chrisstubbs: thansk, lemme test it
[19:36] <daveake> Yeah you need to write a HIGH to enable the pullup

[20:06] <BrainDamage> you can since 2 years or so
