[12:59] <fsphil> I must calibrate this
[13:00] <Upu> where are the other payloads ?
[13:00] <fsphil> I've not checked, but nobody else seems to be receiving them
[13:00] <Upu> got it
[13:00] <Rob_m0dts> i'l check, only heard ava when it first went up
[13:00] <jcoxon> shall i update the predictions?
[13:00] <fsphil> it's in the G spot

[13:04] <GMT> well, that's what I wondered
[13:05] <chrisg7ogx> tks phil did that at launch but shift was wrong so lost confidence
[13:05] <fsphil> the shift is variable, that generally always has to be adjusted

[13:23] <Geoff-G8DHE> Only Google Earth views, but they do look nice, I'll do some Pano's later
[13:23] <chrisg7ogx> please
[13:23] <number10_M0MDB> just had a reset on ava

[13:24] <chrisg7ogx> bonzo heading south wind on the ground gusting to 25mph from the south
[13:24] <number10_M0MDB> no lock - must have been power prob
[13:25] <chrisg7ogx> now a live view from the balloon would be something..
[13:26] <Geoff-G8DHE> Would love to work with someone on that, I reckon a Pano even using the natural Spin is possible
[13:26] <gonzo_> would see lots of cloud!
[13:26] <chrisg7ogx> so photo genic tho
[13:27] <Rob_m0dts> ava has time but no gps lock yet it seems
[13:27] <number10_M0MDB> yes I think power problem as framne count reset
[13:28] <Rob_m0dts> gps is back
[13:28] <navrac-work> i think it wont update on spacenear when the counter has reset though
[13:28] <number10_M0MDB> seemed to coincide with burst
[13:28] <Rob_m0dts> still going up...
[13:29] <Rob_m0dts> ah i see
[13:31] <navrac-work> ava seems to be giving very odd gpr readings
[13:31] <Rob_m0dts> yes very odd!
[13:31] <navrac-work> now its frozen
[13:32] <navrac-work> possible gps antenna damage - loosing lock, then uncertain lock then loosing the time as well
[13:33] <navrac-work> are cloud and buzz actually on the balloon?#

[13:49] <fsphil> it's coming back to earth
[13:49] <fsphil> didn't take long for the signal to disappear!
[13:49] <fsphil> it must be falling fast

[13:50] <gonzo_> 8bit
[13:50] <fsphil> Geoff-G8DHE: autoconfigure will set that up
[13:50] <fsphil> you just need to adjust the rtty shift

[13:52] <GMT> we've all been there!
[13:52] <chrisg7ogx> geoff i reckon it has come down below that layer which was causing probs to us
[13:52] <Geoff-G8DHE> Trouble is the shift then resets to too wide :-(
[13:52] <fsphil> yep
[13:52] <fsphil> manually adjust the shift
[13:52] <Geoff-G8DHE> I think so, there must be a very dense rain layer to the West of us
[13:52] <chrisg7ogx> that's why i thought i wonder what else maybe wrong..

[13:56] <gonzo_> warming up

[13:57] <gonzo_> forgot that was in there. Was planning it for december

[14:03] <Upu> phew cleared to reservior
[14:03] <Upu> go on land on the road
[14:03] <chrisg7ogx> wouldn't be surprised if Bonzo slows and turns north a tad
[14:03] <gonzo_> expect it will. The surface winds are going north
[14:04] <gonzo_> craag, no, we are not chasing
[14:04] <fsphil> touchdown?
[14:04] <gonzo_> expected a wet landing
[14:04] <fsphil> hey that's not far from a road
[14:05] <chrisg7ogx> i know some radio hams on IOW

[14:07] <Upu> thats what the antenna was on the payload
[14:07] <Rob_m0dts> i will tell u when they pick it up ;-)
[14:08] <fsphil> it's moving
[14:08] <Upu> thats just normal noise
[14:08] <fsphil> probably just gps noise
[14:08] <Hix> i was looking at stub antennae, are they ok for HAB then?
[14:08] <fsphil> yea
[14:08] <Cillian> Aye
[14:08] <Upu> it is in pedestrian mode though
[14:08] <chrisg7ogx> thats fantastic and a nice price
[14:08] <Geoff-G8DHE> http://www.g8dhe.net/AVA_landed_8.png
[14:08] <fsphil> it's going back up
[14:08] <Upu> Well Hix people said not but I flew one anyway
[14:08] <Cillian> It'd be funny if the wind caught the chute and it took off again
[14:08] <Upu> and it seems to have worked fine
[14:09] <Hix> what i was thiking
[14:09] <Hix> more robust too at some expense of sig quality maybe
[14:09] <fsphil> I think a cow has picked up this payload
[14:09] <gonzo_> craag, should be good for a few hours yet. Vbatt looks to be about 2.7v still (2xaaa lithuims)
[14:09] <fsphil> or it landed on a cows back
[14:09] <fsphil> and dave will have to wrestle it
[14:10] <Hiena> Ehehehehehe...
[14:10] <gonzo_> or wait 12hrs and get a long rubber glove
[14:10] <Hix> :D
[14:10] <fsphil> or it could be a horse. it's often difficult to tell them apart
[14:11] <Hix> less chewy in a lasagne

[14:11] <Rob_m0dts> ok
[14:11] <Upu> thanks
[14:11] <gonzo_> bonzo shoudl start to turn north soon. It change direction at 11000mtrs on the way up
[14:12] <chrisg7ogx> tks gonzo
[14:12] <Cillian> The tracker doesn't seem to handle gps noise especially gracefully
[14:12] <Randomskk> haha
[14:13] <chrisg7ogx> would be great if it came around for a nice landing is there a "phone this number" msg on it?

[14:20] <chrisg7ogx> why so secure
[14:20] <Rob_m0dts> no signal is varying all over the place from nothing to S9 so they must be on location.

[14:24] <Geoff-G8DHE> That was quick!
[14:24] <chrisg7ogx> how is AVA
[14:24] <Upu> Recovered Chris :)
[14:24] <Upu> best payload status tbh
[14:24] <Hix> did the geofence work as expected upu
[14:25] <Upu> yep it did
[14:25] <Hix> noice
[14:25] <Upu> though the launch site was changed at the last min
[14:25] <Geoff-G8DHE> Go on what is Geofence then ?
[14:25] <Hix> GPS boundary for cutdown
[14:25] <Upu> payload knows what zone its in
[14:25] <chrisg7ogx> great trip..was the stub antenna pointing straight down or at 45ish?
[14:25] <Cillian> Was ava cutdown then?
[14:25] <Geoff-G8DHE> Ah right
[14:25] <Upu> and when it leaves that zone or enters another one
[14:25] <Upu> no Ava wasn't cut down it was testing code for an up and coming APRS flight
[14:25] <Hix> Geoff-G8DHE http://goo.gl/8n5sm
[14:26] <Cillian> Ah
[14:26] <Hix> oh ok
[14:26] <Upu> we aren't allowed to use APRS in the UK so I have to be outside of UK to engage the APRS radio
[14:26] <Hix> ahh the floaty invasion of europe
[14:26] <Upu> there were 7 zones but due to the revised launch site I wasn't able to redo them in time
[14:26] <Upu> but it worked anyway

[14:37] <chrisg7ogx> i love the way it came in
[14:38] <gonzo_> I did have an idea for a challenge for a future flight. Seeing how accurate you could land a payload, with a commanded cutdown and HALO chute deploy. With an idea of dropping on open fields etc for recovery. But I could imagine the way that could be interpreted!

[14:52] <gonzo_> ok. It was a disposable payload anyway. But if you ar in the area.....
[14:53] <chrisg7ogx> the wee wifey works a t Goodwood so I can be
[14:53] <chrisg7ogx> how accurate is this map good enough?
[14:54] <GMT> take the last decoded position and drive to it
[14:54] <chrisg7ogx> ok
[14:54] <GMT> get beam ant, and DF
[14:54] <chrisg7ogx> i wish had to sell lots to get flex
[14:54] <gonzo_> not bad really. But take the lat long and use gps to home in on it.
[14:55] <craag> hehe i know about disposable payloads..
[14:55] <gonzo_> that[sm what we did to recover picochu
[14:55] <chrisg7ogx> thats my long term plan to do that then we can all have a fox hunt liked ur antenna out of window pic yesterday

[14:56] <chrisg7ogx> i'm not practical unfortunately
[14:57] <chrisg7ogx> very left handed
[14:57] <chrisg7ogx> where did u get the metal for ur elements/
[14:57] <chrisstubbs> just dropped below my LOS :( nothing here now
[14:57] <GMT> neither am I! ... batten of wood (25mm x 25mm -ish), choc-block connectors, coat-hangars, bit of coax ...
[14:58] <chrisg7ogx> does the predictor take live wind info?
[14:58] <Geoff-G8DHE> I think so
[14:58] <gonzo_> I made a 10ele yagi for 868mhz during the week. Wood, offcuts of ali rod from a scarp antenna, hammered through.
[14:59] <chrisg7ogx> somebody is moving predicted landing to meet the balloon!
[14:59] <gonzo_> The driven ele was just a bit of copper earth wire from twin and earth mains cable
[14:59] <chrisg7ogx> has turned westerly
[14:59] <chrisg7ogx> i have seen ali rods in B&Q
[15:00] <gonzo_> bit of an odd glitch in the position/track there?!
[15:00] <gonzo_> yep, mine is 3/16ali rod
[15:00] <Geoff-G8DHE> ?
[15:00] <GMT> I want to make an ant using an old tape-measure, but need plastic x-pieces; can't find in UK!
[15:00] <chrisg7ogx> saw that ruler antenna on tinternet
[15:01] <gonzo_> tried that tape idea for a 2mtr one. But it was too flexy
[15:01] <GMT> yup, looks v.good, but can't find cross pieces anywhere
[15:01] <chrisstubbs> GMT tried that, it was almost impossible to get in in the bin when i fount out it didnt work, spring buts of metal everywhere
[15:01] <gonzo_> and no need for flex on 70cm, the elements are short enough
[15:02] <gonzo_> lost signs on bonzo now
[15:02] <chrisstubbs> the tape measure i used was VERy poor quality metal
[15:02] <chrisg7ogx> nice sigs here

[16:25] <NigeyS> you may get clobbered by customs
[16:25] <NigeyS> which would add a charge
[16:25] <NigeyS> not sure how much it is
[16:25] <spiruel_> 24" parachute is 32.95 from random solutions and 23.42 from spherachutes
[16:26] <spiruel_> (both with balloon attachment loops)
[16:26] <gonzo_> think many use random solutions as steve is one of the UK community, rather than a purely commercial outfit

[17:24] <chrisg7ogx> wx is orrible suprised there's been no pile ups
[17:24] <mfa298> Not really. I got a fix from it's telemetry when it was down but at that point I was within a mile so it seemed a bit silly to just leave it there.
[17:25] <mfa298> Looks like someone had come off the A34 earlier
[17:25] <chrisg7ogx> paul imagine you are connecting leads physically when using the software

[18:53] <Adam012> How did Dave's flight go today?
[18:53] <fsphil> all good Adam012
[18:53] <fsphil> recovered
[18:54] <Adam012> I just logged on to spacenear.us to take a look. Why did they only get 24400m in altitude?
[18:55] <fsphil> that might have been intentional, I'm not sure
[18:55] <fsphil> it was heading towards the dales
[18:55] <fsphil> which is a place you don't want to land
[18:55] <Adam012> Military ranges or large expanses of boggy land with few roads?
[18:56] <fsphil> both
[18:56] <fsphil> and mountains
[18:56] <fsphil> and trees
[18:56] <Lunar_Lander> what's dales?
[18:56] <fsphil> valley
[18:56] <Adam012> We had plenty of the latter yesterday (boggy fields). I need to invest in a good pair of wellies.
[18:56] <fsphil> yes, an essential thing to bring on a chase!
[18:56] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[18:56] <fsphil> I learned that lesson the hard way :)
[18:57] <Lunar_Lander> what's wellies?
[18:57] <mfa298> After today I think I'm going to start keeping the walking shoes in the car and get a set of gaiters to keep in the car
[18:58] <Adam012> We've contacted the local farming community about our payload. We searched the field below where it was last heard and we had a good look around the village but no luck so we're relying on locals and word of mouth. I'm going to call the local police as well in case it gets handed in.
[18:59] <fsphil> did you include contact details on the box?
[19:00] <Adam012> When we were heading back we heard on the radio that a unidentified object had caused police to evacuate two streets. I breathed a sigh of relief when they said Heartfordshire.
[19:00] <fsphil> hah
[19:01] <Cillian> o_o

[19:01] <Lunar_Lander> did you fly today also?
[19:01] <NigeyS> yup upu
[19:01] <Adam012> We put contact info on the box and I called the phone inside which is still working and left a text and voice mail. We couldn't track the phone because I forgot to register the new sim on the 'Find my phone' windows live site, doh! Otherwise yesterday would have been a much easier and more successful day!

[19:02] <Cillian> Would have helped yesterday
[19:02] <Upu> I would borrow/beg/steal one next time
[19:02] <Cillian> Adam012: btw, sorry for my confusion yesterday, thought you were the same person as Randomskk :p
[19:02] <Upu> you may be able to hear the payload but not decode it
[19:02] <Adam012> Make? I've seen the off guide.
[19:02] <Adam012> off = odd
[19:02] <Upu> but you'll know which direction
[19:03] <Upu> yeah you can make one from an old measuring tape

[19:11] <Adam012> Hi Julie!
[19:11] <daveake> Cold windy snowy ... Went well :-)
[19:12] <mfa298> it certainly is possible to get there before the baloon, I know project Sharp last year were in a minibus and almost managed to catch the payload as it came in.
[19:12] <Adam012> Wow, I'd love to see it landing.
[19:12] <Upu> any day you get the payload back is a good day
[19:12] <daveake> Hisez Julie
[19:12] <daveake> Yup
[19:12] <Upu> oh is Julie driving ?
[19:13] <Upu> sorry I though she was on the comms
[19:13] <daveake> Crew of 18 today
[19:13] <Adam012> As the only thing that went wrong was me forgetting to register the new SIM I'm pretty confident of retrieval on the next launch. I was very pleased with our flight computer.
[19:13] <Upu> lol
[19:13] <fsphil> 18?!
[19:13] <daveake> Nah stopped for soup and toastie
[19:13] <Adam012> 18?
[19:13] <Upu> how was the "talent" ?
[19:13] <daveake> Ill tel

[19:43] <mattbrejza> a single micro pin putting out 800mA seems too much
[19:43] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[19:44] <mattbrejza> and i seem to remember ubloxes liking a decent path to Vcc (even a ferrite bead increased lock time)
[19:44] <Lunar_Lander> that makes me wonder as well
[19:44] <Lunar_Lander> but I think the power pins on an arduino aren't driven by the CPU
[19:44] <Lunar_Lander> but by the regulators
[19:44] <mattbrejza> so thers a buffer on all the pins?
[19:45] <mattbrejza> i think thats unlikely, looking at the board, cant see any

[20:02] <radim_OM2AMR> sec, I have to catch the error message
[20:02] <Upu> oh you did try it
[20:02] <Upu> how odd
[20:03] <Upu> I guess programming it all works fine via AVR studio ?
[20:03] <Upu> fuses etc
[20:03] <radim_OM2AMR> so you just wrote ext fuse FF and that's all ? :-)
[20:04] <Upu> no fuses as you put
[20:04] <Upu> does your programmer go down to 1.8v ?
[20:05] <radim_OM2AMR> no, I'm trying to program it at 3.3V, then I switch to 1.8V, is it wrong way ?
[20:07] <radim_OM2AMR> avrdude: safemode: lfuse reads as FD
[20:07] <radim_OM2AMR> avrdude: safemode: hfuse reads as DA

[20:08] <Upu> tbh I program at 1.8v
[20:08] <Upu> via Arduino

[20:10] <nigelvh> I use the same chips.
[20:12] <Upu> http://i.imgur.com/7HHW81p.jpg
[20:12] <Lunar_Lander> I got a question about the ublox, a friend bought an MAX-6 and he wonders if it would work without an antenna?
[20:12] <Upu> thats via ATMEL Studio
[20:12] <Upu> no it won't Lunar
[20:13] <Lunar_Lander> OK
[20:13] <Lunar_Lander> the thing is he makes an autopilot for his RC plane (so I understood him) and he now ordered a chip directly from ublox
[20:13] <radim_OM2AMR> Great Upu, thank you, so I must write somehow efuse for FF
[20:13] <Lunar_Lander> before I could show him your shop
[20:13] <Upu> Unlucky
[20:13] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:14] <Upu> ublox direct are very expensive
[20:14] <radim_OM2AMR> nigelvh, if you remember, what fuse setings are you using for 1.8V/4MHz ?
[20:14] <Upu> btw radim_OM2AMR
[20:15] <Lunar_Lander> whoa 75 euros for the module alone?
[20:15] <Lunar_Lander> and 50 euros shipping and 20% tax
[20:15] <Upu> Low 0x62 / High 0xDA / Ext 0xFF runs on internal clock @ DIV/8 = 1Mhz
[20:15] <nigelvh> radim, I don't think you need to change the fuses from what arduino uses. You just need to adjust the compiler (board file) to say how fast the crystal is.
[20:16] <Upu> well you need to turn the BODLEVEL off
[20:16] <Upu> Arduino set it to 2V7
[20:16] <radim_OM2AMR> Upu, no I will not use internal clock
[20:16] <nigelvh> Oh, well then turn that off, otherwise should be similar.
[20:17] <radim_OM2AMR> nigelvh, I have changed board file, but with different fuses like reglar arduino
[20:17] <nigelvh> Besides the BODLEVEL, the default fuses should work.
[20:18] <Upu> yep I agree
[20:18] <nigelvh> default ARDUINO fuses.
[20:18] <Upu> default 3.3V fuses
[20:18] <Upu> not the 5Mhz ones
[20:18] <radim_OM2AMR> OK, I'll try it in a minute :-)
[20:18] <Upu> just use mine I KNOW they work
[20:19] <radim_OM2AMR> Upu but I'm using yours :-) only without the efuse...
[20:19] <Upu> let me see what 07 does
[20:20] <Upu> haha
[20:20] <radim_OM2AMR> what ?
[20:20] <Upu> internal crystal CKDIV8
[20:20] <Upu> you're running at 1Mhz
[20:20] <Upu> sorry
[20:21] <Upu> external crystal
[20:21] <radim_OM2AMR> understand
[20:21] <Upu> divided by 8
[20:21] <nigelvh> So 1/2 of 4MHz
[20:21] <Lunar_Lander> Upu, one more question
[20:21] <nigelvh> oops, 1/2MHz
[20:21] <Lunar_Lander> the antenna gets connected to RF_IN?
[20:21] <Upu> 500khz
[20:21] <Upu> yes Lunar_Lander
[20:21] <Lunar_Lander> thanks
[20:21] <Upu> CKOUT is also set don't know what that is
[20:22] <radim_OM2AMR> Upu, when I put my fuses to the http://www.engbedded.com/fusecalc, there is no CKDIV8 :-(
[20:22] <radim_OM2AMR> So probably that's wrong calc...
[20:22] <Upu> its wrong
[20:23] <Upu> The CKOUT Fuse allows the system clock to be output on PORTB0
[20:23] <Upu> sorry
[20:23] <Upu> I'm talking rubbish
[20:24] <Upu> extended 0x09
[20:24] <Upu> sets the BODLEVEL to an invalid value
[20:24] <Upu> 0x0E = 1.8v
[20:24] <Upu> 0x0F = Disabled
[20:25] <Upu> disabled actually saves power
[20:25] <Upu> as its not running the internal ADC

[20:42] <radim_OM2AMR> Upu, so according to ATMEGA328P datasheet, ext fuse should be 0x07 to disable BOD, when you are using 0xFF it is the same, as BODLEVEL bits are least significant bits
[20:43] <radim_OM2AMR> other bits are unused
[20:45] <radim_OM2AMR> so If I have BOD disabled, it should run at 1.8V, that's realy odd :-(
[20:45] <Upu> via ATMEL software I get 0x09
[20:45] <radim_OM2AMR> :-) so where is the truth now :-)
[20:46] <radim_OM2AMR> are we talking about atmega328P ? :-)
[20:47] <Upu> yep

[22:08] <arko> the panorama mode is really cool on the nexus4
[22:09] <nigelvh> I have the iPhone 5 and it does the same thing. Though for panoramas I prefer to use Photosynth
[22:09] <arko> yeah
[22:09] <arko> these came out meh
[22:10] <kiwi_> That's very cool arko, is that near Los Angeles?
[22:10] <arko> yes
[22:10] <nigelvh> The first was better than the second. You're in much closer quarters in the second which is always harder.
[22:10] <arko> yea
[22:10] <arko> also i moved fast
[22:10] <arko> it blurred
[22:10] <arko> but the hab test went just fine :)
[22:10] <arko> which was more important :P
[22:11] <nigelvh> You using an HX1?
[22:12] <arko> micro-trak at the moment
[22:12] <arko> it's suppose to be the primary radio in case the tracker we designed fails
[22:12] <arko> the one we designed is a gsm based tracker

[22:19] <arko> the first link in that section is a circuit analysis i did of their board
[22:19] <arko> so you know what to expect
[22:21] <kiwi_> Wow that's a lot of info

[22:24] <kiwi_> Why do you go through all that trouble with HABEX2? Is it that hard to launch a HAB?
[22:25] <arko> no
[22:25] <arko> i lost my last one
[22:25] <arko> this one i dont plan to lose ;)
[22:25] <arko> plus, its more a learning experience
[22:25] <kiwi_> Good reasons.
[22:25] <arko> env testing and circuit analysis
[22:26] <arko> to building and testing and testing and testing
[22:26] <arko> etc etc
[22:26] <kiwi_> Failure can really get you motivated ;)
[22:26] <arko> yep!
[22:27] <kiwi_> Regarding the circuit analysis, do you trust the temperature limits? I bet they are conservative.
[22:27] <arko> they are, and could probably survive harsher
[22:28] <arko> temp is important for passive components that can change properies with temperature swings
[22:28] <arko> like resistors
[22:28] <arko> but it depends
[22:28] <arko> batteries

[23:30] <Laurenceb_> heh
[23:30] <Laurenceb_> im trying to make them work atm
[23:30] <Laurenceb_> and failing :-/
[23:31] <Randomskk> I just wrote my very first ever kalman filter

[23:31] <Randomskk> just 2d position, speed, accel with the state noise going into accel and measurements on position
[23:31] <Randomskk> to estimate speed from GPS fixes
[23:32] <Randomskk> worked first time
[23:32] <Laurenceb_> heh
[23:32] <Randomskk> though - initially it took like 10s to stabalise
[23:32] <Randomskk> I realised because I had x(0) as [0,0,0,0,0,0
[23:32] <Randomskk> but the first data point is in the UK and in UTM that's a huuuuge number
[23:32] <Laurenceb_> im trying to fit nonlinear elasticity from position and pressure data
[23:32] <Randomskk> that sounds more exciting admittedly
[23:32] <Laurenceb_> its not working that well
[23:32] <Randomskk> :(
[23:32] <Randomskk> upgrade to a particle filter :D
[23:32] <Laurenceb_> but probably cuz i screwed up
[23:33] <Randomskk> I'm doing it in python so now hate np.dot()
[23:33] <Laurenceb_> going to try it in matlab to rule out matrix screw ups
[23:33] <Randomskk> just annoying when you have like ten terms
[23:33] <Laurenceb_> ive done it in c
[23:33] <Randomskk> mm ik
[23:33] <eroomde> i think if it's unimodal, you use a damn kalman filter
[23:33] <Randomskk> saw your code
[23:33] <eroomde> is my conclusion for real world stuff
[23:33] <Randomskk> hehe
[23:33] <Randomskk> they do appear to be magic
[23:34] <Randomskk> put a proper grin on my face seeing decent speeds suddenly spit out of some linear algebra magic that had position inputs only

[23:34] <Randomskk> actually finding decent values for Q and R is going to be silly but for now wild guesses will suffice
[23:34] <eroomde> decent or descent?
[23:34] <Randomskk> decent
[23:34] <Randomskk> not modelling HABs atm
[23:34] <Laurenceb_> often you have to use nonphysical values for it to work best
[23:35] <eroomde> that's a very unsatisfactory notion

[23:36] <eroomde> how was hiking?
[23:36] <arko> fun
[23:36] <arko> very nice escape
[23:36] <arko> did you see the pictures?
[23:36] <arko> i do enjoy multimodal problems where particle filters and such are used
[23:37] <eroomde> i didn't see the pictures

[23:39] <eroomde> very nice

[23:39] <arko> yeah

[23:39] <Randomskk> oh wow, nice pics
[23:39] <arko> it was a tad cold but it made it better
[23:39] <Randomskk> that looks lovely
[23:40] <arko> Laurenceb_: that were you are?
[23:40] <Laurenceb_> i _was_ in oxford
[23:40] <arko> ahhh
[23:40] <arko> very pretty
[23:41] <arko> eroomde: you in mohave?
[23:41] <eroomde> no
[23:41] <eroomde> a (literally) flying visit tomorrow
[23:41] <arko> ahhh
[23:41] <arko> ok, i thought you were gonna spend the night in the desert
[23:41] <eroomde> nope
[23:41] <eroomde> no particular desire to do that :)
[23:41] <eroomde> i'm having a bit of a down day today
[23:42] <arko> yeah, the mohave sucks
[23:42] <eroomde> been walking/eating.drinking/meeting people constantly the last ages
[23:42] <arko> nice
[23:42] <eroomde> i'm having a few hours of just chilling
[23:42] <arko> its good to take a breath while on vacation
[23:43] <eroomde> yeah indeed
[23:43] <Laurenceb_> arko: which panorama software do you use?
[23:44] <arko> the one on the nexus4
[23:44] <Laurenceb_> ah
[23:44] <Laurenceb_> ive never found a really decent panaorama package.. but maybe i just suck at photography
[23:45] <arko> im not the best either :P
[23:46] <nigelvh> I love Photosynth
[23:47] <nigelvh> They have an iPhone app. Don't know if they have it for android.
[23:47] <eroomde> i didn't take a photo of the breakfast itself but this chap made me breakfast (eggs benedict his style) and they were wonderful
[23:47] <eroomde> http://www.flickr.com/photos/eroomde/8462943758/in/set-72157632591417825
[23:48] <arko> wow nice
[23:48] <eroomde> was a seriously quirkly place
[23:48] <eroomde> there were menus
[23:48] <arko> i've been thinking about buying your camera... it looks really nice
[23:48] <arko> shoots*
[23:48] <eroomde> but you didn't so much pick what you wantedfrom the menu as negotiate with him what you'd be served
[23:49] <eroomde> 'you fancy grits?'
[23:49] <eroomde> 'er..'
[23:49] <eroomde> 'meat?'

[23:49] <eroomde> 'Ok!'
[23:50] <eroomde> arko: i do like it. i might even prefere something with manual focus
[23:50] <eroomde> i think learning to be fast an manual focus would be a great asset for candids

[23:54] <eroomde> for the kind of photos i want to take wandering around anyway

[23:55] <eroomde> that said if i had to get one lens it might be a 50 over a 35 for wandering around
[23:55] <Laurenceb_> nigelvh: silverlight?!
[23:55] <Laurenceb_> bo not want
[23:55] <Laurenceb_> *do
[23:55] <eroomde> often find the 35 of the x100 is slightly wider than the image was in my mind's eye
[23:55] <Laurenceb_> danm dlexia
[23:56] <arko> i see
[23:56] <Randomskk> eroomde: 50s <3 <3
[23:56] <nigelvh> Yeah, it's a microsoft product. You can get it to export as JPGs, but the full sphere panoramas that let you move around run silverlight.
[23:56] <eroomde> but that might just as much be me needing to retain my mind's eye
[23:56] <eroomde> Randomskk: indeed.
[23:56] <Randomskk> or just 50s being lovely and wonderful, especially for candids and portraits
[23:56] <Randomskk> ugh some kind of stupid plotting bug is drawing one of these traces 30 points offset from the rest
[23:57] <eroomde> i shall get the 50 summicron f/2 (and something to attach it to) come the glorious day when funds allow
[23:57] <Randomskk> but if I specifically don't draw that trace, a different one gets offset instead
[23:57] <Randomskk> cry
[23:57] <Randomskk> a glorious day indeed
[23:57] <eroomde> i enjoyed this chap
