[06:45] <nigelvh> Evening all.
[07:00] <fsphil> morning
[07:01] <nigelvh> How's it going over there?
[07:01] <fsphil> to early to say yet. so far so good :)
[07:01] <fsphil> how's your day been?
[07:01] <nigelvh> 7AM/
[07:01] <nigelvh> ?
[07:01] <fsphil> just past 8
[07:01] <nigelvh> Ah, Are you in GMT+1?
[07:01] <fsphil> yea, dst until .. um.. september I think
[07:01] <nigelvh> Or maybe I'm just mistaken as to whether we're on DST or not.
[07:02] <nigelvh> In any case, morning for you folks.
[07:02] <fsphil> ah, ends last sunday in october
[07:02] <fsphil> then its back to GMT
[07:02] charolastra (~quassel@188-22-240-207.adsl.highway.telekom.at) joined #highaltitude.
[07:02] <nigelvh> Just after midnight for me. But it's my friday, so I'm up late as I don't have to work. Finding parts on digikey for my new tracker board.
[07:02] <fsphil> nice
[07:03] <fsphil> searching for parts is one of the bits I don't like about building new boards
[07:03] <fsphil> there are so many
[07:03] <nigelvh> Yeah, it's more wading through than design.
[07:03] <nigelvh> Though I'll admit a bit of excitement when I find a part for really cheap.
[07:04] <fsphil> haha yea
[07:04] <nigelvh> The uBlox module is not one of those.
[07:04] <nigelvh> Even at Upu's good prices.
[07:04] <nigelvh> Still the most expensive part on my board by a long shot.
[07:05] <UpuWork> I might be bringing them down a little
[07:05] <nigelvh> Well good morning to you as well.
[07:05] <UpuWork> morning
[07:05] <fsphil> christmas come early
[07:06] <nigelvh> I don't mean to imply your prices are high, they're quite good, just an expensive module generally.
[07:06] <UpuWork> yup
[07:06] <UpuWork> I know the chinese ones are cheaper
[07:06] eroomde (~ed@cpc3-oxfd20-2-0-cust553.4-3.cable.virginmedia.com) joined #highaltitude.
[07:06] <nigelvh> The chinese ones aren't... good.
[07:07] <UpuWork> exactly
[07:07] <fsphil> you held back there nicely
[07:07] <UpuWork> and the documentation on ublox is quite outstanding
[07:07] <eroomde> yes ^
[07:07] <nigelvh> And I've found other modules that work alright, but are hard to come by, like the ones from ArgentData.
[07:07] <eroomde> compared to the other gps units anyway
[07:07] <UpuWork> yep Ed
[07:08] <nigelvh> Which have essentially zero documentation, but "just work" at altitude.
[07:08] <UpuWork> GT-320FW High-Altitude GPS Receiver $38.00
[07:08] <UpuWork> GT-320FW High-Altitude GPS Receiver
[07:08] <UpuWork> Click to enlarge
[07:08] <UpuWork> The GT-320FW(AS) is a complete, compact GPS receiver with integrated patch antenna that measures 1.35"x1.35"x0.38" (34x34x10mm) and weighs only 20 grams. It runs on 3.6 to 6v DC and has both low-voltage TTL and RS-232 outputs, making it easy to integrate with APRS trackers and other devices.
[07:08] <UpuWork> This module has a special high-altitude firmware version loaded to support operation at altitudes in excess of 25 kilometers.
[07:08] <UpuWork> yes they do
[07:08] <eroomde> i am very happy in the ublox camp
[07:08] <UpuWork> all the way to 27km
[07:08] <UpuWork> and those are more expensive than mine surely ?
[07:08] <nigelvh> I've had them above that.
[07:08] <UpuWork> $37 ?
[07:09] <eroomde> when the ublox 5s came out, that changed things a lot for the better in making tab more reliable and easy
[07:09] <eroomde> hab*
[07:09] <nigelvh> Yes, but include shipping and it becomes more even.
[07:09] <eroomde> we used a ublox 4 before that, but it was like 120mA continuous....
[07:09] <UpuWork> bear with me
[07:09] <eroomde> so we used the lassen iQ for a couple of years as the workhorse
[07:09] <UpuWork> I have 250 MAX7C's on order...
[07:09] <nigelvh> shiny
[07:09] <eroomde> they were alright and documentation was ok, but just the performance was very meh
[07:11] <eroomde> and also those taffy u.fl connectors to antennas were not cool
[07:11] <eroomde> faffy*
[07:11] <nigelvh> I've got a person I work with who's been using the Lassen iQs on his balloon boards.
[07:12] <eroomde> they'll still do the job, i'm sure
[07:12] <eroomde> but their sensitivity and tracking wasn't the best
[07:12] <nigelvh> They do. But not cheap and large.
[07:13] <eroomde> there do exist venus gps chipsets that will do 1.2-1.8V
[07:13] <eroomde> they are probably an interesting seam to mine, if you're into the single-cell thing
[07:14] <eroomde> and they do do alt-capable ones
[07:14] <nigelvh> My present setup is at 3.3V so not a terrible concern.
[07:14] <eroomde> we bought ten from a nice chinese man called sam who worked for them
[07:14] <eroomde> but their dynamic performance is not nearly as good as ublox
[07:14] <eroomde> not an issue for tab though
[07:15] <nigelvh> Having a hard time with 'h's today are we?
[07:15] <eroomde> switched back to macbook air for breakfast
[07:15] <eroomde> having been on the baby thinkpad yesterday
[07:16] <eroomde> i think everything is subtly difficult
[07:16] <nigelvh> Yeah
[07:16] <eroomde> different*
[07:16] <nigelvh> I can see that.
[07:16] <fsphil> yes it's very odd switching between different keyboard scales
[07:16] <nigelvh> I've made sure to keep the same keyboards at home and work so I tend to transition well.
[07:16] <eroomde> fn and ctrl being in different places
[07:16] <eroomde> raaaaaaage
[07:16] <fsphil> going from the eeepc to the thinkpad causes all sorts of interesting things
[07:16] <eroomde> thank god i don't use emacs
[07:16] <arko> Haha
[07:16] <fsphil> yea, macs have " and @ swapped
[07:17] <eroomde> yes
[07:17] <fsphil> whyyyyy
[07:17] <eroomde> though i have remapped that anyway
[07:17] <eroomde> and also \ is somewhere stupid
[07:17] <nigelvh> Yeah, I'm less a fan of the apple compressed keyboard layouts.
[07:17] <arko> That reminds me of the fights i would start in linux irc channels, i use to pop in and ask vi or emacs, people would start arguing, id leave, come back hours later and they are still at it
[07:17] <nigelvh> The extended keyboard is good though.
[07:17] <eroomde> that's just cruel arko
[07:17] <arko> :)
[07:18] <fsphil> everyone uses nano don't they?
[07:18] <arko> I was bored back then
[07:18] <nigelvh> I use vi and nano based on what system I'm on.
[07:18] <nigelvh> Also the task.
[07:18] <arko> Same
[07:18] <eroomde> vi
[07:18] <arko> Its what i learned first
[07:18] <eroomde> always and everywhere
[07:18] <arko> Vi
[07:18] <fsphil> last emacs I used was on the amiga. and I hated it
[07:18] <eroomde> except visudo which is inexplicably nano
[07:18] <arko> Lol
[07:18] <nigelvh> Lots of text entry, nano, quick changes or lots of deleting, vi.
[07:18] <eroomde> anything, vi
[07:19] <eroomde> i love it too much
[07:19] <eroomde> shopping lists, vi
[07:19] <nigelvh> visudo is just a map to the default editor + super permissions.
[07:19] <eroomde> composing an email, vi
[07:19] <arko> Dating advice, vi
[07:19] <eroomde> being able to run cli commands inside the editor is so useful
[07:19] <fsphil> now when you do it by accident
[07:19] <fsphil> not*
[07:20] <eroomde> not least :s !sudo tee %
[07:20] <arko> Heh
[07:20] <eroomde> er, :w !sudo tee %

[07:21] <nigelvh> What I've recently grown to use a lot of is the multiple desktops on my mac.
[07:21] <eroomde> ikewise in linux
[07:21] <nigelvh> And the ctrl->right/left arrow key command to switch with them.
[07:21] <nigelvh> BAM, next desktop with different stuff.
[07:21] <nigelvh> Totally useful.
[07:22] <eroomde> yep
[07:22] <eroomde> code, documentation, mail, youtube
[07:22] <nigelvh> Generally with my work laptop it's Web Browser / Terminal / Chat Client
[07:22] <fsphil> multiple desktops on linux is great, if gnome3 wouldn't try killing it
[07:22] <nigelvh> Sometimes I throw in a fourth for iTunes.
[07:23] <eroomde> i'm less upset by unity now
[07:23] <eroomde> it's much better on 13.04 than 12.04
[07:23] <eroomde> just in terms of responsiveness and stability
[07:23] <fsphil> I may just switch to xkce or mint's gnome2-based desktop
[07:23] <arko> 3 screens is so nice
[07:23] <fsphil> before gnome3 I always had the 4th desktop for email only
[07:24] <arko> Altium, datasheet, youtube
[07:25] <eroomde> i do suspect i'd like altium
[07:25] <Darkside> arko: you use altium?
[07:25] <Darkside> eroomde: you would
[07:25] <Darkside> its wonderful
[07:25] <nigelvh> I've heard many good things about Altium, but have not spent the huge dough to get it, so I still use eagle.
[07:25] <arko> Yes
[07:25] <eroomde> actually eagle has surprised me
[07:25] <arko> I love it
[07:25] <eroomde> it can do differential pairs with meandering and stuff
[07:25] <Darkside> pirate it and try it out
[07:25] <Darkside> >_>
[07:25] <UpuWork> I like Eagle
[07:25] <arko> ^^^^
[07:25] <eroomde> not linux
[07:25] <eroomde> so no go
[07:25] <arko> Eagle is not bad
[07:25] <Darkside> yeah, it dosnt work in wine i think
[07:25] <arko> Best of the free ones
[07:25] <Darkside> the 3d stuff definitely won't
[07:25] <eroomde> it's quirky and i mostly understand the quirks, so i'm happy enough
[07:25] <nigelvh> Yeah
[07:25] <arko> Haha
[07:26] <nigelvh> That's about where I am.
[07:26] <UpuWork> that :)
[07:26] <arko> Darkside: my friend from oz taught me altium
[07:26] <eroomde> but i think altium does things like shuffle traces out the way automatically if you're trying to drag a new trace where they are
[07:26] <arko> Good times
[07:27] <arko> Does so much
[07:27] <Darkside> eroomde: it can
[07:27] <arko> Signal sim even
[07:27] <Darkside> i don use that feature
[07:27] gonzo__mob (~gonzo_mob@ joined #highaltitude.
[07:27] <arko> Yeah, all auto route is off for me too
[07:27] <Darkside> i've done diffrential pair routing though

[07:27] <Darkside> matching*
[07:27] <Darkside> that was cool
[07:27] <arko> Signal names and interface is very nice once you are use to it
[07:28] <eroomde> i would like an option in eagle to snap the origin of a part to the current grid
[07:28] <arko> Yes!!!!!
[07:28] <eroomde> without editing the coordinates in the properties dialogue
[07:29] <eroomde> i change grids quite a lot when i'm doing stuff so this frustrates me a lot
[07:29] <arko> Yeah, especially when trying to make room for traces

[07:51] <ibanezmatt13> I see it eroomde, I'll havea look
[07:51] <nigelvh> I might have put the SMA connector off the bottom and had that trace be a little cleaner, but shouldn't matter much.

[07:52] <ibanezmatt13> eroomde: I just need a via connecting that small area to GND

[08:00] <nigelvh> Cool

[08:16] <Joel_re> has anyone built anything to detach the payload based on gps coordinates
[08:16] <Joel_re> well Im interesting in how the payload can be detached
[08:16] <Joel_re> s/interesting/interested
[08:16] <HixWork> it has been done Joel_re
[08:16] <ibanezmatt13> HixWork: Is gerbv just a case of dropping the filesin?
[08:16] <fsphil> that's called a geofence Joel_re
[08:16] <Joel_re> HixWork: ok cool
[08:17] <HixWork> ibanezmatt13 CTRL+O
[08:17] <HixWork> import layers
[08:17] <Joel_re> fsphil: yep, I get the idea, but Im wondering what sort of hardware to detach the payload
[08:17] <fsphil> you could set a safe area where, if it goes outside the area, it cuts down
[08:17] <ibanezmatt13> ok, I'll try it
[08:17] <Joel_re> fsphil: ok, how does it cut down - or anything i can read
[08:17] daveake (~daveake@daveake.plus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[08:17] <fsphil> some people use little pyros in the cord, that once they pop separate the payload from the balloon
[08:17] <HixWork> Joel_re many methods, pyro cutdown, electro-magnetic, even the cutwaway loops from parachute systems
[08:18] <ibanezmatt13> HixWork: Done it, loads of unknown file type errors and it looks a bit bizzare
[08:18] <Joel_re> ok
[08:18] <fsphil> or you can burn the cord with heat, using a low value resistor or nichrome wire
[08:18] <daveake> Melt rather than burn/ Except for my last flight :p
[08:18] <fsphil> yes melt

[08:45] <cyclops_> btw guys, if the antenna is in the bottom of payload, when landing will it be damaged an will i loose signal?
[08:45] <daveake> A different launch site, on Saturday, could have worked but there'd be a frequency conflict IIRC
[08:45] <daveake> and I dont have a suitable site either
[08:46] <daveake> cyclops_, Yes and probably no
[08:46] <daveake> I've had one where the antenna was flat under the payload. Still picked it up 1km away
[08:46] <cyclops_> awsome
[08:46] <daveake> But the best idfea is to surround the antenna with pipe insulation
[08:46] <UpuWork> when are you launching cyclops_ ?
[08:46] <cyclops_> i have everything ready for launch
[08:47] <cyclops_> 11th august

[08:49] <cyclops_> sure!
[08:51] <cyclops_> got more followers, and so they will track the balloon
[08:51] <x-f> cyclops_, don't forget to announce your launch on the UKHAS mailing list, you might get a few more trackers from France and other countries

I am a complete newbee here and I am on a steep learning curve to get this balloon up in thte air within 6 weeks I have most of the rest of the design done and I think I have the transmitting of data sorted just have no idea on how to recieve it yet.
[09:11] <fsphil> google are being cheeky and asking for my phone number. very odd
[09:11] <G0TDJ_Steve> Hi leonardsla3_
[09:11] <HixWork> leonardsla3 http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:tracking_guide
[09:12] <mfa298> leonardsla3_: the rtl-sdr dongles (Certain USB TV tuners) are cheap although not the most sensitive options.
[09:12] <HixWork> fsphil Willdude34593563050242 has taken over google. he'll be instructing your uncle to get in touch too shortly
[09:12] <G0TDJ_Steve> I was going to suggest a second hand FT-790R
[09:12] <HixWork> leonardsla3 look at the bit about SDR in that link above ^^^^
[09:13] <fsphil> HixWork: seriously. it won't let me log into any google service without entering my phone number
[09:13] <mfa298> 2nd Hand, FT790, or one of the listed scanners should give something decent and not too expensive (£100 or less)
[09:14] <HixWork> fsphil really? no skip option? normally is
[09:14] <fsphil> HixWork: nope. just an option to reset my password, even though it's right

[09:15] <fsphil> weird, was able to login by tunneling through my home internet
[09:15] <fsphil> it's official. google consider my work to be an unusual location

[11:33] <chrisstubbsw> somone ran past with a defibulator so might have been serious
[11:33] <ibanezmatt13> oh dear
[11:33] <daveake> not good
[11:34] <chrisstubbsw> they give the location code too so it was "all first aiders to SH IT department" (s building)
[11:34] <chrisstubbsw> *SH building
[11:35] <astrobiologist_> you'll be amazed at how things can break down in a real emergency. I had a colleague once who had a fit and stopped breathing. The switchboard proved incapable of ringing 999! And nor could any of us remember the internal emergency code on the phones. Myself and two colleagues basically ran off in random directions - and ran past several first aid boxes clearly marked with all the first aiders' numbers. Eventually abou
[11:37] <astrobiologist_> - about ten minutes later by word of mouth, by which time my colleague had come round on her own accord and seemed fine. But it could have been nasty. Since then I've paid much closer attention to the switchboard codes etc. And we also all get fire extinguisher training with burning oil etc. Which is fun.
[11:37] <chrisstubbsw> Anyway how are things?

[11:40] <mfa298> fire extinguisher training with real fire is fun. Expecially when they give you a water extinguisher to try and put out a fire with oil/kerosene

[11:54] <chrisstubbsw> I do yes
[11:54] <chrisstubbsw> steve randall has a nice filler with some clear pipe
[11:54] <chrisstubbsw> but garden hose does the job

[14:06] <Brew__> Hi all I want to connect a NTX2 to my raspberry Pi and just want to check the pin connection, Pi 3.3v to NTX2 VCC, Pi UART TX to NTX2 TX Pi Grnd to NTX2 0V is it as simple as that?
[14:06] <fsphil> you'll need to wire the EN pin on the NTX2 to the VCC pin, to enable the radio
[14:07] <Brew__> that is just a straight short no need for a resistor?
[14:07] <fsphil> and you'll need a few resistors between the Pi's TX pin and the NTX2's TXD pin
[14:07] <fsphil> yea the EN pin can be wired directly to VCC, no need for resistor
[14:07] <Brew__> Any guidance on what kind of value resistors?
[14:08] <fsphil> http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:linkingarduinotontx2
[14:08] <fsphil> same deal as this
[14:08] <fsphil> except you're using 3.3v instead of 5v
[14:09] <Brew__> grand I've seen that already but just wanted to check. Back to the iron I'll be back
[14:09] <fsphil> there is a formula there for calcuating the resistance you need for whatever shift you want
[14:09] <fsphil> best to pick a shift from the list of standard ones in fldigi
[14:09] <fsphil> though it'll probably still be off a bit, it's nice to get it close
[14:10] <Ugi_> My aim at 425 has gone to 450 - will that cause people problems in tracking? Can change if needs be.
[14:11] <fsphil> would mean that people would have to adjust it manually
[14:11] <fsphil> not all know how to, or that they might need to
[14:12] <Ugi_> OK. I'll see if I can tweak it.
[14:12] <fsphil> I think you can specify a custom shift in the payload doc anyway, though I remember someone having problems with that
[14:12] <daveake> fsphil Incoming Garfield
[14:13] <Ugi_> Someone on here said that a multiple of the baud rate was good so having stumbled onto 450 I was thinking that would be OK.
[14:15] <chrisstubbsw> shift should be >= baudrate, being a multiple wont matter afaik
[14:15] <mattbrejza> multiple of baud rate
[14:15] <mattbrejza> so that the carriers are othogonal
[14:15] <chrisstubbsw> Fair enough :)
[14:15] <Ugi_> That was it - not that I know what that means

[15:38] <Brew__> does anyone have a python test script, I'm just trying to test my NTX2 on my Pi?
[15:40] <Brew__> or any pointers on how to port the Arduino across to the pi?
[15:41] <fsphil> this might work: serial.Serial('/dev/ttyACM0', 300, stopbits=2).write("hello world")
[15:41] <fsphil> needs this too: import serial
[15:41] <fsphil> and pyserial installed
[15:41] <fsphil> and your user to have permission to write to /dev/ttyACM0
[15:42] <Brew__> agh do we think that would be affected by having my GPS module connected?
[15:43] <fsphil> shouldn't, but you won't be able to have both opened at the same time
[15:43] <Brew__> yes that sounds about right, ok back to the research to work out how to stop the GPS and test the NTX2

[16:24] <Steve_2E0VET> evening all
[16:24] <cm13g09> I ordered some SIL resistors....
[16:24] <cm13g09> 5 pin - 4 resistor, plus common
[16:24] <cm13g09> they arrive, with no marking as to which leg is common :P
[16:24] <Steve_2E0VET> i was going to come on here and ask if anyone had any idea why my rtty script was just sending a constant carrier
[16:24] <Steve_2E0VET> but then realised thats what the script was telling it to do
[16:25] <chrisstubbs> Evening Steve_2E0VET
[16:25] <Steve_2E0VET> hi chrisstubbs
[16:25] <chrisstubbs> At least it was an easy bug to fix :) All good now?
[16:25] <number10> always good to check first Steve_2E0VET
[16:25] <cm13g09> Steve_2E0VET: I think in IT, we call that a feature ;)
[16:25] <Steve_2E0VET> cm13g09, yes defo a feature
[16:25] <Steve_2E0VET> we dont use the word "bug"
[16:26] <cm13g09> yep :P
[16:26] <chrisstubbs> Does anyone know what the 4r7 stamped on the top of those inductors is btw? 4.7 ohms?
[16:26] <Steve_2E0VET> ok, so back to trying to get my stuff to all hang together, i think a lot of my problem was USB power
[16:27] <Steve_2E0VET> i never realised i could plug the arduino into the mains, not litterally
[16:27] <cm13g09> ah, and now the fun bit... where I have to suspend the board in mid air, and pray I don't get showered in components :P
[16:29] <mfa298> cm13g09: presumably some form of Henry (as that's what inductance is measured in)
[16:29] <cm13g09> mfa298: I think you wanted chrisstubbs and I think you'll find, chrisstubbs that it's the ESR of the inductor....
[16:30] <mfa298> yup, I just realised I got the wrong c<tab>
[16:30] <cm13g09> lol
[16:30] <chrisstubbs> Ok cool, seems odd they they are not marked with their inductance
[16:30] <mfa298> seems odd to stamp them with ESR rather than inductance
[16:31] <mfa298> do you have an idea of what inductance they should be ?
[16:31] <chrisstubbs> Not a clue
[16:32] <mfa298> this suggests thats a value in uH http://how-to.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_identify_inductor_markings
[16:32] <chrisstubbs> al236 is the name on the regulator IC
[16:32] <mfa298> with the R being a decimal point
[16:32] <cm13g09> lol
[16:33] <chrisstubbs> 4.7 seems reasonable
[16:34] <cm13g09> right - 3 components on each board to go chrisstubbs, then shall we try to see if I can rx a payload out the window....
[16:34] <mfa298> although if it's only part of the former that's broken off it might be ok.
[16:35] <mfa298> depends if it's something that's going to affect the inductance (and how much it's affected it)

[19:14] <nigelvh> Maybe, maybe not. It's rather quantum.
[19:14] <BabsTab> Surely on that basis it's both off and on at the same time?
[19:14] <nigelvh> Until you observe it.

[19:15] <BabsTab> I think I remember wave functions collapsing. It was many years ago now.
[19:15] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> and that was my screen you knocked on glad you didn't split it!
[19:15] <BabsTab> Although I didn't really understand the maths behind them then either
[19:16] <BabsTab> Thanks guys - just checking whether I could log on through this thing. Upside for HixWork though, at least there are no underscores after BabsTab . Yet.
[19:16] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Logon again that will take care of the underscores
[19:17] <BabsTab> I'm never logging off again
[19:17] <nigelvh> That's how I roll. I leave my client open in a screen session, so I just reconnect on whatever device I'm on.
[19:17] <nigelvh> That way I'm always nigelvh
[19:17] <eroomde> i did do that
[19:17] <eroomde> but then 8 years of perma-irc
[19:18] <eroomde> no more
[19:18] <BabsTab> I'm sitting by a pool, it's 90 degrees and a waiter has just bought me a beer. There seems little incentive to come back to blighty.

[19:18] <eroomde> yes
[19:18] <eroomde> all going well
[19:19] <BabsTab> Really good news. I remember hotol the first time around.
[19:19] <eroomde> lots of very very interesting and exciting work in the next 18 months
[19:19] <BabsTab> I might go and see Endeavour tomorrow. It's 12 miles away from me apparently.

[19:21] <nigelvh> Way better.
[19:21] <eroomde> i saw endeavour when i was there
[19:21] <eroomde> it's worth doing
[19:21] <BabsTab> Is it worth doing?
[19:22] <BabsTab> Ahh it's worth doing
[19:22] <BabsTab> I remember in year 2 at school not being allowed to watch the launch on our only tv at school because the headmaster said 6 year olds wouldn't understand it
[19:22] <BabsTab> As in the first launch

[19:25] <eroomde> my fav bit
[19:26] <BabsTab> Those things are epically complex
[19:27] <nigelvh> And especially awesome
[19:27] <BabsTab> I mean, the theory is simple but making it all run with components that are produced in such low batches and subject to such stresses is the most impressive bit of space flight

[19:28] <BabsTab> eroomde: I could probably spend all day there but if I am asked for guidance from The Powers That Be how long we will have to spend there to see it all how many hours to go around?
[19:28] <eroomde> the difference between 95% efficient and 99% efficient is a whole world of maths and science
[19:28] <eroomde> it was a big hanger with shuttle and engine, basically
[19:28] <eroomde> you can't get too close to either
[19:29] <eroomde> in the rest of the museum are things like a real gemini capsule
[19:29] <eroomde> which i also liked
[19:29] <eroomde> but for the shuttle, you don't actually need much more than 1hr
[19:29] <BabsTab> I'd like to see some Mercury and Gemini stuff if there is time
[19:30] <eroomde> it's v interesting too
[19:30] <BabsTab> The challenge will be that it takes 10 minutes to walk around the hangar for Mrs Babs, but 10 hours for Mr Babs to analyse the tiles, work out how the engine pumps work etc.
[19:31] <eroomde> yes
[19:31] <eroomde> that could be tricky
[19:32] <BabsTab> She's got a good book on her kindle at the moment. It's doable.
[19:32] <BabsTab> I've even sneaked some quality coding in here
[19:33] <BabsTab> Well, "quality" at my coding level is the equivalent of me trying to recreate painting the sisteen chapel with a broken crayon a crayon and a paint roller

[19:46] <Lunar_Lander> hi S_Mark and Upu
[19:46] <S_Mark> how come?
[19:47] <Upu> the pad design isn't correct
[19:47] <Upu> you'll probably get away with it
[19:47] <S_Mark> uh oh..
[19:47] <Upu> if you solder it on correctly however
[19:47] <Upu> just to be sure you can fix it with a scalpel
[19:48] <S_Mark> ok whats the problem with it
[19:48] <Upu> its not actually meant to have GND under part of it

[19:50] <S_Mark> ok
[19:50] <Upu> replace the part
[19:50] <Upu> with the same part then see the difference
[19:50] <Upu> (hit rats nest)
[19:50] <Upu> like I say it probably won't make much difference
[19:50] <Upu> but I just trim the feed dow a little

[20:01] <S_Mark> is that the only mod?
[20:02] <Upu> basically there should be a keep out area
[20:02] <Upu> yep that seems to do it
[20:02] <Upu> sorry about that
[20:02] <Upu> like I say it seems to be fine
[20:02] <S_Mark> so just to confirm, cutting away the rf pad from the edge of the board a few mil, just so there is enough to solder?
[20:03] <S_Mark> Ah defo no probs! Thanks for the library in the first place!

[21:56] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[21:56] <Lunar_Lander> I thought Voyager was especially sad
[21:56] <Lunar_Lander> there was a route
[21:56] <Lunar_Lander> Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto
[21:56] <Lunar_Lander> not approved because Pluto was not that interesting
[21:56] <Lunar_Lander> when Charon was discovered around 1979 it was too late
[21:56] <arko> heh, o well
[21:57] <arko> brb walking my dog
[21:57] <Upu> lol
[21:57] <Lunar_Lander> they could not use Voyager 1 then because they would had have to made the decision at launch to fly that route
[21:57] <BabsTab> Arko - just in case you are near West Hollywood and fancy dropping in for a quick beer, it has just been granted approval from the Powers That Be
[21:57] <BabsTab> I mean, I'm still my own man and everything, making my own decisions etc.
[21:58] <arko> :O
[21:58] <arko> im down
[21:58] <arko> i was gonna go downtown to test the thermal vac chamber
[21:58] <BabsTab> But if not, I will buy you a Belgian in the UK
[21:58] <arko> haha
[21:58] <BabsTab> I have no clue where downtown is
[21:59] <arko> were in west hollywood are you?
[21:59] <BabsTab> Is it the lowest altitude or the lowest latitude?
[21:59] <BabsTab> Chateau Marmont
[21:59] <wrea> I'd love to do one of the JPL public tours one day
[21:59] <arko> wow damn
[21:59] <BabsTab> Although judging by the state of the carpets it's more Shateau Marmont
[21:59] <arko> thats an expensive place
[22:00] <BabsTab> Got a good deal.
[22:00] <arko> hah
[22:00] <arko> wrea: you should!
[22:01] <BabsTab> Plus after the cost of the wedding everything else is minor static
[22:01] <arko> BabsTab: up to you and the wife
[22:01] <wrea> I grew up in the bay area and I hate I never went to Ames
[22:01] <arko> i dont want to infringe
[22:01] <BabsTab> I'm living on porridge until 2017
[22:01] <Lunar_Lander> can I ask my stupid short circuit movie question?
[22:01] <wrea> I'm going to be in socal next month but no time to do a tour
[22:01] <arko> wrea: aww, i'll be in the uk next month :P
[22:02] <BabsTab> It's cool - no infringement
[22:02] <BabsTab> Am here until sat midday so plenty of time
[22:02] <arko> cool cool

[23:04] <Laurenceb_> SpeedEvil: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=0bCpD0tx1iU
[23:05] <Laurenceb_> dont need aerogel for thermal resistance
[23:07] <arko> plus aerogel is probably very dangerous to breath
[23:07] <arko> like asbestos or something
[23:08] <Laurenceb_> i doubt that
[23:08] <Laurenceb_> citation needed :P
[23:10] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb_: I mean more thenrmal resistance as in W.m^2/K
[23:10] <SpeedEvil> Not 'I can point a blowtorch at it'
[23:11] Action: SpeedEvil wonders if he's got the dimensions correct on that.
[23:11] Action: SpeedEvil decides it's too late for dimensional analysis.
[23:11] <Laurenceb_> i see
[23:11] <Laurenceb_> that video is pretty epic
[23:12] Action: SpeedEvil is wondering about making some aerogel.
[23:12] <Laurenceb_> ive forgotten the technique
[23:12] <SpeedEvil> Using a scaffolding pole as a reactor.
[23:12] <Laurenceb_> supercritical CO2?
[23:13] <SpeedEvil> Alcohol I was thinking of.
[23:13] <SpeedEvil> But yes - supercritical
[23:13] <Laurenceb_> ah
[23:13] Action: Laurenceb_ zzz
[23:13] <Laurenceb_> work 2morrow :-/
