[10:13] <Babs> it didn't work but it was a beautiful piece of engineering
[10:14] <gonzo__> why do they all have the 'make a noise like an old slr' functions all turned on, on their cameras?
[10:15] <gonzo__> it's as annoyiong as seeing people using flash, because they probabloy don't know how to turn it off.
[10:15] <LazyLeopard> Why do cameras even have a "make a noise like an old SLR" function...
[10:15] <gonzo__> (rant, spit....)
[10:15] <fsphil> people like feedback
[10:15] <Oddstr13> make the thing vibrate in their hand instead ._.
[10:16] <zyp> some jurisdictions require that cameras make sounds

[10:16] Action: Oddstr13 connects a car horn to his camera
[10:19] <edmoore> we have a camera that makes a rocket firing noise when you click it
[10:19] <edmoore> because the shutter is plumbed into an engine trigger circuit
[10:20] <edmoore> (do I win?)
[10:20] <amell> no
[10:20] <amell> if it actually ignites the engine, then you win

[10:24] <amell> yeah i know. I saw him take off.
[10:25] <edmoore> there was a lot of speculation about the chute system being at fault
[10:25] <amell> looks like it was just the solar panels didnt come right out.
[10:26] <amell> how far away are the rovers - i dont suppose they can drive over and take a look

[10:27] <Babs> bbc has higher quality coverage, but mobile phone buzz. bbc on silent and telegraph audio works bests

[11:46] <Oddstr13> lower power than a RPi, not really planning on running a full blown Linux system on there
[11:46] <Oddstr13> but a Arduino is a bit too limited for what I wish to do
[11:48] <Oddstr13> I've found this thing; http://www.eluaproject.net/, which looks interesting
[11:48] <fsphil> read that as EULA for a second
[11:48] <fsphil> which is longer than I spend reading most EULAs
[11:48] <edmoore> it's a shame that a lot of the big micros don't have an mmu
[11:48] <edmoore> well, that's not really a shame actually
[11:48] <Oddstr13> I know Lua quite well from the ComputerCraft Minecraft mod
[11:49] <edmoore> but, a cortex m4 in my datalogger runs at 168MHz
[11:49] <edmoore> it has a memory interface
[11:49] <edmoore> it could exceed the specs required for tolerable openbsd performance
[11:49] <edmoore> but no mmu

[12:43] <Oddstr13> the Pi is cheaper than that mbed, on sparkfun anyway
[12:43] <craag> There were a few on that elua page

[12:45] Nick change: Guest29557 -> spe
[12:45] <Vaizki> a few hours? from 4 AAs? ok so your power budget is a lot bigger than I thought
[12:46] <Oddstr13> Vaizki: I guess it's more <500mA when I think low power, as that's what a USB port usualy can deliver
[12:46] <craag> Could jsut about do a pi with that :P
[12:46] <Oddstr13> also, most 5V regulators are around there, before they start to get expensive

[13:25] <Oddstr13> almost any store has them

[13:26] <Vaizki> you haven't told us what the application is :)
[13:27] <Oddstr13> having fun, hacking :P
[13:28] <Oddstr13> think arduino, that runs scripts written on it, possibly even assembling asm and running it

[13:52] <Vaizki> I've no idea who has the best prices but for example http://www.ev-power.eu/
[13:53] <Oddstr13> Well, I have problems finding them at all in norwegian stores
[13:53] <gonzo__> I priced up the battery power required to run 500W of stuff from solar PV. But it worked out that just the cost of maintaining/replacing batteries was more than the price of mains electricty
[13:54] <Vaizki> well depends on where you are :)
[13:54] <Vaizki> but even in Finland solar power can be cost effective. Storing it for night time operation probably isn't as you learned.
[13:55] <gonzo__> if the mains power went down to the point of needing long term backup, then the internet would be down also, so the need for computers in the house would probably go away. And you can read a book with a candle!
[13:55] <Vaizki> but a solar panel + microinverter can be had for 1 eur/Wp
[13:56] <Oddstr13> gonzo__: you're forgeting HAMs and digital modes! :D

[13:56] <Oddstr13> I mean, you wouldn't be able to do facebook, but you might be able to get on IRC!
[13:56] <craag> what could go wrong
[13:56] <Oddstr13> craag: oh, just about everything :P
[13:57] <gonzo__> I have 1.2kw of PV on the garage. Though it would not be nearly enough generation, I just did the sums on the possability of storeage to run offgrid with a 500w load. The cost and predicted life of the batteries was the killer.
[13:57] <Vaizki> yea you should only plan for 1/3 discharge
[13:57] <Vaizki> or less
[13:58] <gonzo__> if you get paid some rediculously high feed in tarrif, then PV is worth doing. But otherwise, you are lucky to pay for the cost of the install.
[13:58] <gonzo__> PV only makes real sense if you are forced to be off grid
[13:59] <Vaizki> well without batteries it works out
[13:59] <Vaizki> meaning you are making 220V directly from each panel using micro inverters
[13:59] <gonzo__> a friend has a small farm that is run off pv. But that is because he had all the batteries for free and the grid wanted many 10k£ to install power
[14:00] <Vaizki> and NOT storing in batteries
[14:00] <gonzo__> I gave a microinverter on my PV. No special tarrif for feed in, just offsets a bit of power that the server etc draws
[14:00] <Vaizki> yea
[14:00] <Vaizki> don't produce more than your "base load"
[14:01] <Vaizki> and don't sell back into the grid
[14:01] <gonzo__> exactly
[14:01] <Vaizki> and don't store it
[14:01] <Oddstr13> Vaizki: well, I have a ODROID-U2, all I need is a LCD that runs of car battery power, and I'm golden
[14:01] <Vaizki> that's when it pays off
[14:01] <gonzo__> (or risk your import meter flagging the reverse flow as a tamper alarm!)

[14:28] <Vaizki> Six months later we have given away $500,000 in free shipping, and, well&we cant sustain the program in its current form. At the rate of $1M a year - yeah - we arent that phat.
[14:28] <Vaizki> 500k :D
[14:29] <Vaizki> they must be like.. fffuuuuu...
[14:29] <Oddstr13> more like "uh, oh... okay."
[14:30] <Oddstr13> I have about 2720 USD in orders from there since 2011
[14:31] <Oddstr13> so, if they gave free shipping on orders over $200, I'd be mostly covered :P
[14:32] <Vaizki> check out Mouser. the selection so overwhelming it's hard to find stuff sometimes but they have everything in terms of components.
[14:32] <Oddstr13> but, yea, FedEx owes me about 100 USD for that LCD
[14:33] <Oddstr13> but I'd rather just have the LCD
[14:33] <Oddstr13> Vaizki: yea, I've considered trying them
[14:33] <Oddstr13> I did buy stuff from Digikey once a while back
[14:33] <Oddstr13> I hit their free shipping mark, so :P

[19:56] <Laurenceb> if i slow down the spi to <<1mhz i get 0xfffffffff
[19:56] <ak4rp> how do you force the SPI to behave as a half-duplex port?

[19:56] <Laurenceb> on stm32?
[19:56] <Laurenceb> I dont
[19:56] <Laurenceb> just sent 0x00 dummy bytes
[19:56] <ak4rp> OK
[19:57] <Laurenceb> the weird thing is, CTS line isnt doing a lot
[19:58] <ak4rp> did you perform the boot-up ritual?
[19:58] <Laurenceb> whats that?
[19:58] <Laurenceb> my code is here
[19:58] <Laurenceb> https://github.com/Laurenceb/STM32_Launcher/tree/master/Silabs
[19:58] <Laurenceb> line 185
[20:00] <ak4rp> that should be fine
[20:01] <ak4rp> the only pitfall I entered were SPI overruns
[20:01] <ak4rp> i.e., I was overwriting bytes that were being transmitted instead of waiting for the SPI TX buffer to become empty.
[20:01] <ak4rp> but that only corrupted multi-byte commands, obviously
[20:02] <ak4rp> I'm checking your SPI initialization
[20:05] <ak4rp> are you using hardware-generated NSS?
[20:08] <Laurenceb> no
[20:08] <Laurenceb> I was
[20:08] <Laurenceb> it works intermittently now
[20:08] <Laurenceb> well
[20:08] <Laurenceb> I got it to work once today
[20:08] <Laurenceb> it wasnt repeatable
[20:09] <ak4rp> After line 204, you should (for some strange reason) wait until NIRQ gets asserted
[20:10] <ak4rp> I'm not sure you do that
[20:10] <Laurenceb> ah
[20:10] <Laurenceb> I've commented all that out anyway
[20:10] <Laurenceb> as it should be running on RC osc anyway
[20:10] <Laurenceb> so i just try part number test
[20:11] <ak4rp> So after some trial-and-error, I switched to NSS generation via GPIO
[20:12] <Laurenceb> ah interesting
[20:12] <ak4rp> maybe it was lame but it worked. Having had a quick look, I'm not sure I understand how do you handle NSS
[20:12] <Laurenceb> you are using stm32?
[20:12] <ak4rp> yes
[20:12] <Laurenceb> cool
[20:13] <Laurenceb> search for NSEL_LOW

[20:30] <Laurenceb> you wait for CTS in your code
[20:30] <Laurenceb> same as i was doing
