[08:26] <AndyEsser> o god yes
[08:26] <AndyEsser> just from my time working in TV gameshows and some of the other things I did
[08:26] <AndyEsser> like the Hawaii Discovery channel job
[08:27] <AndyEsser> they want the interface to look "sexy"
[08:27] <AndyEsser> but it was in no means functional
[08:27] <AndyEsser> also I had to rename a "fake" button to "ion count" as this was just when all the phone competition scandal was going on

[08:30] <fsphil> the future is multipsk
[08:31] <gonzo_> what you need is some wahy of identifying a customer and give them one big mashable button on the screen, with what they brought last time
[08:31] <gonzo_> as 9/10 times, that is what they will want againg today
[08:31] <fsphil> mmm
[08:32] <fsphil> a lot of the UIs here have big tables of data. not all the text boxes line up. horrible
[08:32] <gonzo_> but it tends to get tailored to what sales think will look good at the trade shows, not how real users will use it
[08:34] <fsphil> just have a black screen with a single >_ prompt. say it's the new light weight version, super fast and efficient
[08:35] <gonzo_> a while ago (with a previous long gone MD) we were shown the prototype of a new bus ticket machine. With a touch screen etc. I pointed out that what the drivers needed were real buttons, as they tend to operate by feel; as they pull away from the stops. I was told quietly never to do that again if I wanted to stay employed
[08:35] <gonzo_> it flopped, a quickly revised version with a button front panel was designed.
[08:36] <fsphil> hah
[08:36] <fsphil> vindication
[08:36] <gonzo_> I need to have a big 'I told you so' plackard

[08:38] <AndyEsser> it hurt my eyes

[08:38] <gonzo_> ah, yes. Though he did have a dummies version wiuth less data
[08:39] <AndyEsser> marginally less :P

[08:39] Bencls (~Bencls___@81.145.59.244) joined #highaltitude.
[08:39] <AndyEsser> not a UI/UX expert :)
[08:40] <fsphil> UIs are not easy
[08:42] <AndyEsser> I have 3-4 books at home to read on them
[08:42] <AndyEsser> not a simple problem to solve
[08:42] <AndyEsser> you can make a UI that works, or one that looks pretty
[08:43] <AndyEsser> making a pretty UI that works is very hard

[08:45] <SpacenearUS> New position from 03S-18 after 039 hours silence - 12https://tracker.habhub.org/#!qm=All&q=S-18
[08:46] <daveake> Don't get me on the subject of being handed a UI to code, where the designer knows how to make things pretty but has no idea about UIs
[08:47] <gonzo_> I have done my best to keep away from anything customer interfacing. Or have someone else spec it. As I've tended to find that managers rarely have a clue about the actual working of the stuff they are responsible for. So they will pick on things they can understand, like the paint colour or font
[08:48] Bencls (~Bencls___@81.145.59.244) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[08:48] <gonzo_> and sometimes there are depts (paid more than engineers) who bleat about corperate image and whether the logo is the approved one thois month
[08:49] <gonzo_> who have more of the upper management's ear, than engineers do
[08:49] <daveake> Exactly so
[08:49] <daveake> I wonder how much they got paid for the video splash screen
[08:50] <fsphil> splash screens must die
[08:50] <daveake> Pretty much the first code I wrote was to disable the splash screen
[08:50] <AndyEsser> good UIs are something I'm interested in - but not on web
[08:51] <AndyEsser> but Data>Functionality>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Prettiness
[08:51] <AndyEsser> IMHO
[08:52] <gonzo_> someopne made up some advertising graphics for our machines, whilst on screensaver, with a bouncy ball offering itself as being a helpful thingy
[08:52] <daveake> They aren't mutually exclusive though - just needs skills in both
[08:53] <gonzo_> when I saw it 'oh, god. The microsoft word paperclip is back!'
[08:53] <daveake> I was about to say :-)
[08:53] <daveake> Bouncy == helpful ??
[08:53] <gonzo_> there was a long 'oh' from people and it went away!
[08:54] <gonzo_> on a screen, a yellow ball with a face. I poiinted out is the acid house symbol. And after having to explain what that was to the designer......
[08:56] <gonzo_> not sure I am popular. But at least these things cet caught bgefore going out in the wild
[09:03] <AndyEsser> daveake: o definitely agreed that they're not mutually exclusive :)
[09:04] <daveake> Maybe it's a left/right brain thing, but it does seem rare to find that combination of skills
[09:06] <AndyEsser> Yea, I suspect people that are usually good at the process/data/etc type stuff (ie logic)
[09:06] <AndyEsser> think of the ui stuff as a "fluffy" skill
[09:06] <AndyEsser> and vice versa
[09:06] <AndyEsser> (I know this is the case with me)
[09:06] <AndyEsser> I appreciate pretty things
[09:06] <AndyEsser> but damned if I know how to make them
[09:06] <AndyEsser> daveake: I'm sure there are a few unicorns in the wild that are great at both
[09:09] <AndyEsser> I'd love my RTTY demod to have a nice simple command line interface
[09:09] <AndyEsser> and a really sexy/pretty UI
[09:09] <AndyEsser> but chances are it'll be a nasty command line
[09:09] <AndyEsser> then I'll get bored
[09:09] <AndyEsser> and move onto something else :P

[15:22] <gonzo_> ta, getting snatches of data now
[15:23] <Geoff-G8DHE> I'm also taking on Rv whoich is a bit odd, everything checked out for the rest of the system so bemused

[15:36] <daveake> Payload aerial upside down Geoff-G8DHE ? :p
[15:38] <garymortimer> http://www.thebellstilton.co.uk/ I have actually stayed there
[15:38] <gonzo_> the raf was good to you?
[15:39] <daveake> So, when are you writing "The Drinking Man's Guide To HABbing Around Britain"?
[15:39] <Geoff-G8DHE> Um I wonder ;-)
[15:39] <Geoff-G8DHE> not
[15:41] <gonzo_> you can add the appendix for chip shops dave
[15:41] <daveake> Sounds fair
[15:43] <hyde00001> so whilst we are doing food/pubs, I need lunch in Cambridge (ideally nearish to Jesus college - northish from centre) on Saturday - any suggestions?
[15:44] <garymortimer> From what I gather many of teh places I frequented have closed, shocking state of affairs!
[15:45] <garymortimer> It should be the gentlemans guide to HAB mobile HQ's or some such
[15:50] <hyde00001> shocking indeed - not getting enough HAB driven custom obvioulsy
[15:50] <edmoore> hyde00001: you've loads of options there
[15:50] <edmoore> loads of restaurants on bridge street
[15:50] <edmoore> fome french bistros to tapas to italian to vietnamese
[15:51] <hyde00001> encouraging, I don't that part of Cambridge well and I won't have much time...
[15:51] <AndyEsser> Mai Thai on Jesus Green
[15:51] <edmoore> on jesus green there's a munch along the river
[15:51] <AndyEsser> Byron Burger is also a good shout
[15:52] <edmoore> pubs and restaurants
[15:52] <edmoore> king street has a wanky wine bar and a good italian cafe called Clowns
[15:53] <hyde00001> was that a really poor review for the wine bar or a typo?
[15:53] <edmoore> restaurant 22 is just on the river north of jesus and is more fine-dining
[15:53] <edmoore> it's a nice wine bar
[15:53] <edmoore> i like it
[15:53] <edmoore> but not mega cheap
[15:53] <AndyEsser> so swanky?
[15:53] <AndyEsser> rather than wanky?
[15:53] <edmoore> has pretentions
[15:53] <edmoore> well the latter cos of the pretensions
[15:54] <edmoore> The Castle on castle street is a classic HAB pub
[15:54] <edmoore> used to go there after launches and it's where everyone went after the conf this year
[15:54] <hyde00001> suited and booted on this occasion - memorial service in Jesus
[15:55] <garymortimer> Then is that entry 1 in the gentlemans guide?
[15:55] <AndyEsser> I enjoyed The Castle for my first time there after conf
[15:55] <garymortimer> Or gentleperson
[15:57] <edmoore> hyde00001: have a look at Restaurant 22
[15:57] <edmoore> it'll be a lovely meal
[15:57] <edmoore> and a very short walk across jesus green
[15:57] <adamgreig> restaurant 22 is very nice though very... intimate
[15:58] <edmoore> perfect for eating by yourself :)
[15:58] <adamgreig> yea agreed, it's nice
[15:58] <hyde00001> Sounds perfect - small group of sad friends..
[16:00] <edmoore> http://www.restaurant22.co.uk/menu
[16:00] <edmoore> see what you think
[16:01] <hyde00001> mmm looks lovely, but look like they dont do lunch...
[16:01] <edmoore> oh sorry rubbish suggestion then
[16:01] <edmoore> Cote Brasserie on bridge st
[16:01] <edmoore> chain but smart
[16:07] <hyde00001> Cote Brasserie - perfect
[16:09] <hyde00001> garymortimer - impressive pub suggestion within 1km of landing spot 40 minutes out...
