[00:08] <nayr> the biggest err being a Delorian wont do 88mph heh
[00:08] <nayr> unless you drive it off a cliff
[00:08] <arko> also, after working on this project for over a year, i dont want a DeLorean anymore
[00:09] <arko> as we took apart the car I realized how unsafe it is
[00:09] <arko> it's built backwards
[00:09] <nayr> its a heap of a car
[00:09] <arko> frame is fiberglass and it's covered in metal
[00:09] <arko> rather than the other way around
[00:09] <arko> it's pretty, but damn stupid
[00:09] <nigelvh> Unrelately, just got off the phone with Amazon, thought the interview went well.
[00:09] <nayr> thats what happens when you let a junkie design a car
[00:10] <arko> nigelvh: :)
[00:10] <arko> woot
[00:11] <nigelvh> Hopefully soon I'll hear back from the recruiter letting me know what(if) the next step would be.
[00:12] <fsphil> hopefully the puppy put in a good word
[00:13] <nigelvh> She decided to bark at the fiance who was walking up to the door during the middle of it, but I had my office door closed, so hopefully not too obnoxious on the other end.

[00:14] <fsphil> people with puppies are automatically nice people, unless they like fancy black and white furry coats
[00:15] <nigelvh> Ours isn't like that.
[00:15] <SpeedEvil> nigelvh: goods luck
[00:16] <nigelvh> Thanks
[00:17] <fsphil> indeed
[00:21] <nigelvh> Anyway, for now enjoying my unplanned, unpaid, time off.
[00:22] <fsphil> make some pancakes!
[00:22] <nigelvh> Maybe some bacon...
[00:22] <nigelvh> mmmmmm bacon....
[00:22] <Darkside> bacon pancakes!
[00:23] <Darkside> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrcT7sseLZI
[00:23] <nigelvh> Exactly
[00:23] <nigelvh> Especially with the song.
[00:23] <Darkside> haha
[00:23] <Darkside> so you're an adventure time watcher?
[00:24] Action: arko fistbumps Darkside
[00:24] <Darkside> mathematical!
[00:25] <nigelvh> I've seen a bit of it.
[00:25] <nigelvh> Haven't been really watching it religiously though
[00:25] <nigelvh> Though, I will admit to being a Brony.
[00:25] <nigelvh> Fucking love that show.
[00:25] <Darkside> *brohoof*
[00:26] <nigelvh> *brohoof*
[00:26] <Darkside> hah
[00:26] <Darkside> but yes, adventure time is weird
[00:26] <Darkside> some eps are great, some are not so great
[00:26] <Darkside> some are just disturbing
[00:26] <arko> what
[00:26] <Darkside> some incredibly disturbing
[00:26] <arko> you guys are seriously brony's
[00:26] <arko> ?
[00:26] <nigelvh> Yeah
[00:26] <arko> ....
[00:26] <Darkside> arko: not massively so
[00:26] <Darkside> but i watch the show
[00:26] <arko> >_> i thought it was a troll
[00:26] <arko> like no one actually does
[00:26] <fsphil> I was watching adventure time on the plane home from oz
[00:26] <nigelvh> arko, give it a try.
[00:27] <arko> nigelvh: i was told the same about heroin
[00:27] <arko> adventure time is amazing
[00:27] <Darkside> fsphil: nigelvh have tou seen the new lemongrab ep?
[00:27] <Darkside> you*
[00:27] <fsphil> nope
[00:27] <Darkside> aww
[00:27] <nigelvh> arko, yes, it's originally a little girl's show, but it's an honestly well written, well drawn, cartoon
[00:27] <Darkside> its very disturbing
[00:28] <fsphil> the episodes I saw where pretty out there

[00:29] <arko> now i want bacon pancakes
[00:29] <arko> yep
[00:29] <nayr> all I remember was the commercials for adventure time were highly annoying
[00:29] <nigelvh> Just give it a try, if you don't like it, that's fine, but it's honestly a good show.
[00:29] <arko> i have shows like that

[00:31] <nayr> im 30 and I spend most the day on the computer humming PBS kids theme songs over and over

[00:32] <gonzo_> when you get kids of your own, the earworms that you get ate all kids tv themes
[00:32] <nigelvh> Invader Zim is the fucking best.
[00:32] <fsphil> it really is amazing
[00:32] <gonzo_> something they enver warn you about!
[00:32] <nayr> kids tv theme songs are deviously catchy
[00:32] <arko> ok, Invader Zim was amazing
[00:32] <arko> no one is arguing that

[00:33] <nigelvh> arko, if I had to point you to two episodes, I'd say the first one (It's a two parter), and then Season 1 Ep 25 "Party of One"
[00:34] <arko> if i had the time...
[00:34] <nigelvh> First one is just so you know the characters and the base story.
[00:34] <arko> i haven't had a chance to watch netflix in like a month or so
[00:34] <nayr> I tried to sit down and watch the avengers cartoon with my son

[00:34] <nayr> but after a day of watching it he started punching everything
[00:34] <nigelvh> arko, PONIEZ
[00:34] <nayr> so might be a lil too much for a 2yr old
[00:34] <arko> O_o
[00:34] <nigelvh> haha
[00:35] <nayr> but its cute as hell now; when get gets all pissed off he goes all hulk and looks like his eye's are about to pop out of his head as he clentches every muscle in his body
[00:36] <nigelvh> haha
[00:36] <nayr> looks like the little big planet guys about to self destruct
[00:37] <gonzo_> better the eyes bulging. I've seen the youtube weightlifters fails
[00:37] <Lunar_Lander> I got a short question
[00:37] <Lunar_Lander> sparkfun has a SPI real time clock
[00:37] <nigelvh> "magic"
[00:37] <Lunar_Lander> can I use one along with an SD card also wired to SPI?
[00:38] <nayr> yeah
[00:38] <nigelvh> In theory, yes.
[00:38] <nayr> as long as you dont use both at once
[00:38] <Lunar_Lander> it's all about the chip select pin right?
[00:38] <Lunar_Lander> hm ok
[00:38] <nigelvh> SPI uses an "SS" pin (Slave Select"
[00:39] <Lunar_Lander> yes
[00:39] <zyp> what is this for? what would the purpose of the RTC be?
[00:39] <Lunar_Lander> I was thinking of a balloon spinoff
[00:39] <Lunar_Lander> a stationary weather station
[00:40] <Lunar_Lander> and GPS might be overkill as a time reference
[00:40] <nayr> you got to do battery backup
[00:40] <nigelvh> Most RTCs aren't terribly accurate on time.
[00:40] <nayr> yeah i dont recall a very accurate SPI one; there might be
[00:40] Laurenceb__ (~Laurence@host86-143-4-159.range86-143.btcentralplus.com) left irc: Ping timeout: 248 seconds
[00:40] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[00:40] <zyp> nigelvh, it's as accurate as the oscillator feeding it
[00:40] <nayr> but the accurate one I used in my designs were i2c
[00:40] <Lunar_Lander> I just saw a SPI module at sparkfun for 3.3V
[00:40] <fsphil> radio time signal would be interesting
[00:40] <Lunar_Lander> yea the I2C version is at 5V
[00:41] <fsphil> the ones on 50/60khz
[00:41] <nigelvh> Assuming you can pick it up
[00:41] <fsphil> there's one in germany
[00:41] <fsphil> should be a good signal
[00:41] <nigelvh> Perhaps you guys don't have that issue, but here in the US, it can be sometime unreliable
[00:41] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[00:41] <fsphil> a bigger country I suppose
[00:41] <nayr> ive got a project using the built in one on a teensy3 using a fairly accurate crystal and it keeps time good enough for my garden
[00:41] <nigelvh> Yes
[00:42] <fsphil> the UK has a single transmitter roughtly in the middle
[00:42] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[00:42] <fsphil> -t
[00:42] <nayr> one in US is in boulder colorado
[00:42] <nigelvh> Yep
[00:42] <fsphil> just one?
[00:42] <nayr> yep
[00:42] <Lunar_Lander> let me guess
[00:42] <nigelvh> For the VLF time, yes
[00:42] <Lunar_Lander> it is owned by NIST
[00:43] <nayr> easy guess
[00:43] <zyp> keep in mind that digital clocks are just counters, so the accuracy in any case depends on the oscillator feeding them
[00:43] <nigelvh> There's also time sources at 5MHz, 10MHz, 15MHz and depending on the site a few more, and those are in colorado and hawaii
[00:43] <fsphil> I receive LW radio stations from france, at about 200khz
[00:43] <fsphil> but it's very weak
[00:43] <fsphil> and disappears during the mornings
[00:43] <zyp> so unless you are going for a chip with internal crystal, the chip itself doesn't have anything to do with accuracy
[00:44] <nayr> yeah
[00:45] <fsphil> I read somewhere that the LW radio stations are occasionally heard in the US
[00:45] <nayr> im using a +-5ppm crystal in my Teensy3 and it keeps it within a few seconds a month
[00:46] <nayr> that was the most accurate one I could find
[00:46] <nigelvh> Yeah, ocasionally we do hear some.
[00:46] <nayr> most were +-10-20ppm
[00:46] <fsphil> impressive distances
[00:46] <zyp> 5ppm is like 13 seconds a month
[00:47] <gonzo_> the first transatlantic tv was done on LW
[00:47] <nayr> sounds about right
[00:47] <fsphil> I can't imagine TV on longwave at all
[00:47] <gonzo_> 30line mecanical
[00:47] <zyp> and of course that's worst case, if it's loaded correctly and otherwise operated within spec
[00:48] <fsphil> one nice thing about LW is during the daytime, the european stations are solid. no fading at all
[00:49] <nayr> its for timing IO's for garden automation so thats an acceptable deviation
[00:49] <nayr> I looked into an i2c one that was only a few seconds a year; but wasent really nessicary
[00:50] <eroomde> evening
[00:50] <fsphil> if you have two way communications with the weather station, you could just sync the time from the PC
[00:51] <fsphil> morning eroomde
[00:51] <nayr> yeah my time syncs every time I connect and download data or change things
[00:51] <eroomde> morning even fsphil
[00:51] <eroomde> afternoon for me
[00:51] <nayr> but if its an outdoor weatherstation thats gonna be left alone for long time
[00:51] <nayr> might be worth it to get a more accurate time keeper or use the GPS
[00:51] <Lunar_Lander> nayr, yea
[00:51] <fsphil> gps isn't too expensive now
[00:52] <nayr> yeah there cheap as shit
[00:52] <fsphil> and some of those RTC modules are pretty pricy anyway
[00:52] <nayr> put a supercap on the systme to keep power in a brownout and you wont loose time or gps lock
[00:52] <nayr> if you change out batteries
[00:52] <fsphil> just remember that gps time is not utc
[00:53] <nayr> otherwords your timing routines need to wait for a gps lock
[00:53] <nayr> w
[00:53] <nayr> hich the cheaper units do take a while
[00:53] <nigelvh> Presently GPS is (i think) 15 seconds off UTC
[00:55] <nayr> how are you powering it? if voltage wont be stable (solar+battery) might be best to just do the GPS
[00:56] <nayr> you can kill the power to the GPS and only turn it on every once and a while to update the internal clock
[00:57] <nayr> tho I imagine RTC's dont use any power they do have problem keeping time w/out stable voltage

[01:11] <nayr> ah yeah I forget it splits inland in cali

[11:41] <S_Mark> Hello, does anyone know when Random Engineering will have the Hwoyee 1600 back in stock?
[11:41] <Upu> hey S_Mark
[11:41] <Upu> only person you can ask is Steve who runs it
[11:42] <fsphil> ah nuts, didn't know they where out
[11:43] <S_Mark> Hello Upu and fsphil, ah ok no problem, is Steve on here or would be easier to just drop him an email?
[11:43] <Upu> he does come on here as rocketboy
[11:43] <Upu> but I'd just send him a mail
[11:44] <S_Mark> Ok that's great, will do, thanks!
[11:48] <S_Mark> Out of interest, are there any other tried and tested suppliers in the UK that sells the Hwoyee balloons?
[11:49] <fsphil> don't believe so
[11:49] <S_Mark> OK
[11:49] <fsphil> you might be able to get them directly from Hwoyee, but probably not worth the bother
[11:49] <Upu> Nah I'd just go via Steve
[11:49] <Upu> I looked into it once
[11:50] <Upu> and by the time you've paid the shipping and import its not worth it
[11:50] <S_Mark> Ah yeah, yeah I did have a quick look around but couldnt see anything
[11:50] <Upu> why 1600g anyway whats the plan ?
[11:53] <S_Mark> Our payload + parachute is going to be approx 1200g, does this size seem excessive? Our plan was to just go for height on our first launch with not too much drift
[11:53] <Upu> Might be worth using a 1000 or 1200 for first launch
[11:53] <S_Mark> We have been using the calculator and based that size based on previous launches
[11:53] <Upu> if you don't get it right the 1600g's can be tricky
[11:53] <S_Mark> Ah ok
[11:53] <fsphil> 1600g's can be floaty, although not likely with that weight of payload
[11:53] <S_Mark> What are the problems that people find?

[11:54] <Upu> or they don't fail at all and float off to Afgahnistan with your payload
[11:54] <Upu> if you don't put enough gas in
[11:55] <S_Mark> Ah well we defo dont want to end up in Helmand
[11:55] <S_Mark> lol
[11:55] <Hix> extra stirks for 1600 then?
[11:55] <Upu> if you're confident you can measure the neck lift correctly
[11:55] <Upu> you should be fine
[11:55] <Upu> though most people get it wrong first time
[11:56] <S_Mark> What are the common mistakes?
[11:56] <fsphil> I got it wrong the fourth time :p
[11:56] <Upu> not enough gas
[11:56] <Upu> "it will be enough"
[11:56] <Upu> never is :)
[11:56] <S_Mark> Ah ok
[11:57] <S_Mark> Thanks for the info, lots to learn on the first go
[11:58] <S_Mark> Maybe we'll look into the 1200
[11:58] <fsphil> man, two days ago my hourly was entirely water. now it's almost entirely land
[11:58] PaulCDR (5e0ea94c@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[11:58] <Hix> speaking of hourlys, would it run on a virtual machine?
[11:59] <mattbrejza> it is for me
[11:59] <Hix> excellent, i'll give that a go
[11:59] <fsphil> wouldn't everything run in a virtual machine?
[11:59] <mattbrejza> games?
[12:00] <fsphil> if it had a decent virtual video card
[12:01] <mattbrejza> i tried it once and it didnt work and didt care enough to get it working
[12:01] <Hix> what sort of resources does the hourly need? RAM bandwidth etc?
[12:01] <mattbrejza> either way predictor works fine :P
[12:01] <fsphil> more bandwidth than anything else
[12:01] <Hix> hmmm, often?
[12:02] <Hix> i've got a Huuuge 1.5Mbps
[12:02] <fsphil> I run it once a day
[12:04] <Hix> Hurrah, twezers and solder iron tips arrived
[12:04] <fsphil> yay!
[12:04] <Hix> oh and ISP programmer
[12:04] <Hix> today is a good day
[12:04] <Hix> just needs bacon
[12:05] <mfa298> Next challenge is probably for someone to get the hourly running on a pi.
[12:05] <fsphil> that shouldn't be that difficult
[12:06] <mfa298> biggest bit is probably getting some of the dependancies
[12:06] <mfa298> although I wonder if ram might be an issue
[12:09] <Hix> Wow 0.2mm conical tip is spot on, I now have confidence soldering TQFP

[13:07] <Elwell> (poss for upu, but general ublox q) -- have any of you hooked one directly to a r-pi? thinking of using one as a NTP server (see http://www.satsignal.eu/ntp/Raspberry-Pi-NTP.html) -- Ideally I'd like to share the PPS between 2 separate systems (blitzortung and NTP server) but suspect I'll just buy a new receiver
[13:09] <Elwell> presently just got an EM-406A
[13:10] <Darkside> hmm
[13:11] <Darkside> if you really care about timing accuracy, use a NEO-6T
[13:11] <Darkside> the actual ublox timing module
[13:12] <Elwell> I don't care *that* much :-)

[13:16] <Darkside> for NTP a regular module shoudl be fine, as long as you have a good antenna and lots of sats in view
[13:18] <Elwell> yeah - my srif-3 seems more than good enough (ran a comparison compared to decent network link - stayed in track
[13:18] <Elwell> and I'm not using it for neutrino measurements :-)

[13:44] <Laurenceb_> s/wtf/ftw
[13:45] <NigelMoby> mark are the empty bits literally empty, no gsm etc?
[13:45] <Hix> is there any problem in splitting the power feed so it feeds both tracker and sms board each with an independent reg?
[13:46] <Hix> from the battery pack i meant to say
[13:46] <Laurenceb_> id imagine no gsm
[13:46] <Laurenceb_> gms range is tens of Km absolute max
[13:46] <Laurenceb_> *gsm
[13:46] <NigelMoby> ah true
[13:46] <Hix> it's for land use
[13:47] <Laurenceb_> that too
[13:47] <Hix> as a backup if it cant be located on ground using VHF
[13:47] <Laurenceb_> below 1Km you usually get a signal

[13:48] <NigelMoby> spoil sports lol
[13:49] <daveake> Elwell Yes Pi has i2c but doesn't work with UBlox (requires clock-stretching at arbitrary points and the Pi doesn't handle that). i2c with bit-banging does work.
[13:52] <Laurenceb_> eww
[13:52] <Laurenceb_> daveake: are you sure?
[13:52] <Laurenceb_> do you use driver code?
[13:54] <Laurenceb_> cant you use usb to talk to the ublox?

[16:27] <craag> Indeed!
[16:28] <craag> I'd be worried about the 0.5m/s ascent rate though, you might manage a (short-lived) float.
[16:28] <craag> That's roughly what we had with the ill-fated mbed payload.
[16:28] <gonzo_> what you suggest?
[16:29] <craag> How heavy is the payload?
[16:29] <gonzo_> prob about 60rg

[16:30] <craag> You could use one balloon but it would burst <3000m. I haven't played much with two, but maybe go for 10g or so more lift to get closer to 1 m/s.
[16:31] <NigeyS> gonzo_ running a 1m/s prediction now
[16:32] <gonzo_> the burst is the unpredictable bit
[16:32] <NigeyS> yup
[16:32] <gonzo_> what lift would give 1m.s?
[16:32] aj4ln (47bf39d2@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left #highaltitude.
[16:32] <fsphil> how are you going to get it NigeyS?
[16:32] <craag> I've found with one balloon, ascent rate ~= (free lift/10)
[16:33] <craag> so maybe try 15-20g of free lift.
[16:33] <NigeyS> if it stays just north of pontyclun, i can go to my sisters and chase from there
[16:33] <craag> (Assuming 2 balloons is double the drag)
[16:33] <NigeyS> same for if it bursts over barry, my dads there all morning, so pretty confident at recovering
[16:34] <craag> What rate are you expecting for descent?
[16:34] <gonzo_> craag, ok, thanks for that

[16:48] <fsphil> or that nasa predictor

[16:49] <fsphil> predicting a foil is fairly iffy anyway
[16:49] <NigeyS> very!
[16:50] <craag> That'll definetely put it on the Bristol side of the channel :(
[16:50] <craag> You can try for 0.5m/s ascent, if it floats then fsphil might be able to recover!
[16:50] <fsphil> if it comes this way. it could easily end up in scotland too :)

[17:16] <fsphil> though it does happen the hwoyee ones occasionally to
[17:18] <S_Mark> Is it worth the risk do you think?
[17:18] <fsphil> is it cheaper?
[17:18] <fsphil> there really hasn't been enough flights with the pawan ballons to be certain
[17:18] <fsphil> a short flight isn't too bad a thing, bit of a waste of He
[17:19] <S_Mark> roughly the same
[17:19] <S_Mark> In what way a waste?
[17:24] <gonzo_> depends what you want to do. Our group want to do some photo launches with the next latex. so will overfill and get it up quick and down close
[17:25] <gonzo_> so short flight is the aim there
[17:26] <S_Mark> That is our aim too
[17:29] <fsphil> waste as in, the same amount of helium would have gone higher with a better balloon

[17:31] <fsphil> they might be as good

[17:31] <Upu> however
[17:31] <Upu> not enough to make a call on it
[17:31] <Upu> just stick with Hwoyee or the other ones for the moment

[20:31] <mattbrejza> HixPad: looks fine
[20:32] <HixPad> This is the view from eagle so effectively looking through the board
[20:32] <HixPad> Whereas in real life you would turn it over and it will then be wrong.
[20:32] <HixPad> Pin 1 would be top right...
[20:33] <mattbrejza> so the pins go clockwise rather than anticlockwise
[20:33] <HixPad> I reckon
[20:33] <mattbrejza> the power pins are to hte right of pin 1 in that image whilst iff you were looking at the ic the right way up they would be to the left
[20:34] <HixPad> Th
[20:34] <HixPad> Pot got the Pinout with me so can't comment on pin functions
[20:34] <HixPad> But it looks like they are just transferred to bottom without flipping left right over
[20:35] <HixPad> The circle in the PDF should be top right
[20:35] <Randomskk> swapping to bottom does mirror parts in eagle
[20:35] <mattbrejza> its just been rotated 90o? :/
[20:35] <Randomskk> you can't get parts wrong unless your library was wrong
[20:36] <mattbrejza> (compared to what you tihnk)
[20:36] <Randomskk> if you mirror a part in eagle it swaps its layer
[20:36] <HixPad> I think from memory I clicked middle mouse to get it to bottom layer
[20:36] <mattbrejza> and also yea eagle works fine
[20:36] <Randomskk> yes
[20:36] <Randomskk> that is the same as mirroring
[20:36] <HixPad> And I think that is where it's ballsed up
[20:37] <Randomskk> ?
[20:37] <Randomskk> eagle won't balls it up
[20:37] <Randomskk> if you have a part
[20:37] <Randomskk> and the part is correct
[20:37] <Randomskk> it will be correct on either layer
[20:38] <mattbrejza> i checked against the datasheet and its fine
[20:38] <HixPad> The. Part was from Upu lib
