[2:42] <ukscone> I was a bit bored and admitedly i suck with graphics programs http://russelldavis.org/Stuff/raspi-inside.jpeg
[2:43] <Dagger3> that's terrifying
[2:43] <Dagger3> the logo looks like a face... staring at you from inside the penguin...
[2:44] <ukscone> yep :) and what is even more scarey is that i thought i could draw
[2:45] <Thorn_> creeeeeeepy
[2:45] <ukscone> i did a similar graphic a couple of years ago that was better but i was denied permission to use so i thought i'd use the layers i created then and try to mod it but my mouse has very poor resolution at -- using a really old and clunky one and the cats were sitting on my lap
[2:46] <Dagger3> you know we won't be able to look at the RP logo now without seeing it staring back at us?
[2:46] <ukscone> well there was already a scarey pig face in it so that's not my fault

[6:58] <ball> Yay! There's a Raspberry Pi channel! :-)
[7:07] <ball> I tried watching some videos about the Raspberry Pi today. I quite fancy a Model B.
[7:10] <DaQatz> You are not alone
[7:24] <ball> :-)
[7:24] <ball> There seems to be a lot of interest.

[14:42] <ukscone> http://xkcd.com/979/ so true
[14:46] <IT_Sean> is that today's?
[14:46] <IT_Sean> if so, i haven't seen it yet
[14:47] <IT_Sean> hahaha
[14:51] <IT_Sean> I do hate it when that happens
[15:01] <ukscone> http://ow.ly/i/lykL/original that looks like a production board to me
[15:02] <ukscone> IT_Sean: and yes that was todays xkcd
[15:02] <Anppa_> looks like alpha?
[15:03] <IT_Sean> ukscone: not a final board. Not the non-miniusb power adapterizer
[15:04] <IT_Sean> also, note the hardware pushbuttons on the board, which we have heard will not be on the final
[15:05] <ukscone> ok not final final board but smaller than the alpha
[15:09] <ukscone> nope it's just the angle i think that makes it look smaller
[15:09] <IT_Sean> aye
[15:10] <ukscone> compared it to the original
[15:10] <ukscone> and the final artwork
[15:36] <mdavey> FXI demos 'Cotton Candy' Android-anywhere device
[15:36] <mdavey> http://www.thinq.co.uk/2011/11/18/fxi-demos-cotton-candy-android-anywhere-device/
[15:36] <mdavey> The Raspberry Pi sub-??25 computer has just got its first real competition in the form of the 'Cotton Candy' from Norwegian outfit FXI - a tiny USB stick ...
[15:36] <mdavey> $200
[15:37] <IT_Sean> $200!
[15:37] <IT_Sean> no thanks
[15:39] <jzu> not the same audience at all
[15:39] <mdavey> nope, but interesting nevertheless.
[15:39] <IT_Sean> one can buy a lot of raspi's & accessories and such for $200
[15:41] <jzu> indeed but this one is integrated, ready to use, and really tiny
[15:41] <IT_Sean> the raspi is ready to use and really tiny.
[15:42] <jzu> I've seen a "linux on a rj45" device a few months ago
[15:43] <IT_Sean> what do you mean "an rj45 device"?
[15:43] <IT_Sean> something the size of an RJ45 plug?
[15:43] <jzu> yes
[15:43] <IT_Sean> shit.
[15:43] <IT_Sean> I could imagine that being used for all sorts of evil.
[15:44] <jzu> http://tightwadtechnica.com/?tag=embessed
[15:44] <IT_Sean> arsing hell!
[15:45] <IT_Sean> yeah... i see allll lsoorts of evil applications for this thing :/
[15:47] <jzu> $48 each for 1000 of them, $400 for the "development kit" (whatever that is)
[15:47] <jzu> no, "kickstart kit"
[15:50] <jzu> there's also the Lantronix XPort Pro
[15:52] <jzu> $57
[15:53] <IT_Sean> jzu: so... you need to spend $48,000 on those bastards?
[15:53] <IT_Sean> unless you are manufacturing something that uses them, that's a bit steep.
[15:55] <jzu> embedded computing used to be that way
[15:59] <jzu> I believe it's been evolving since the Linksys NSLU2, that kind of ARM device
[16:00] * iMatttt (~imatttt@cpc3-farn4-0-0-cust594.6-2.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:00] <jzu> oh yeah, and the Arduino of course
[16:03] <jzu> and now, we cheap amateurs are waiting for the messi^H^H^H^H^H RPi production board... :-)

[16:31] <ahven> http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w143/JamesHughes_photos/RaspberryPi/2011-10-01-018.jpg
[16:31] <ahven> the SoC :)
[16:31] <IT_Sean> woah
[16:32] <traeak> http://www.linuxfordevices.com/c/a/News/Embest-DevKit8500D/
[16:32] <traeak> $149 beagleboard competitor
[16:33] <jzu> connectors galore
[16:35] <traeak> i suspect the rpi's weakest link will be that cpu, and possibly the ram
[16:35] <traeak> seems cortex a8 by next year will probably be the de facto entry level
[16:38] <traeak> hmm...tinycore looks interesting
[16:46] <ukscone> 'top' reports 1% of running processes consuming 99% of available CPU. #OccupyTheProcessTable
[16:47] <traeak> wha't's hogging?
[16:47] <traeak> btw, htop is way cooler
[16:49] <ahven> yep, just installed it and agree with it :)
[16:53] <traeak> ahven: a few configuration tweaks and its even better
[16:53] * IT_Sean sees what you did there
[16:59] * IT_Sean tries to work out where he want's to go for lunch
[17:01] * Dagger3 tries to work out what that apostrophe is doing
[17:01] <Dagger3> (alerting us of the upcoming "s", I guess?)
[17:04] <IT_Sean> bah
[17:05] <IT_Sean> well... that's that solved... Apparently we are ordering sandwiches today.
[17:05] <IT_Sean> :p
[17:13] <ukscone> what type of sandwiches? canned corned beef with coleslaw are nice
[17:13] <IT_Sean> I'm getting a grilled chicken. Dunno what everyone else ordered.
[17:16] <traeak> a whole grilled chicken?
[17:16] <traeak> hm
[17:17] <ukscone> yuk i hate chicken unless i cook it myself
[17:18] <ukscone> i don't trust anyone else to cook chicken safely
[17:18] <IT_Sean> a grilled chicken sandwish, you dillberg :p
[17:18] <IT_Sean> We've ordered from this place before. They are reallly good.
[17:18] <IT_Sean> *sandwich
[17:23] <traeak> wouldn't you rather have the haggis sandwich ?
[17:26] <IT_Sean> noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
[17:26] <IT_Sean> nooooooooooooooooooooo noooooooooooooooooo nooo no nooo no no no.
[17:26] <IT_Sean> No thank you.
[17:26] * ReggieUK (ReggieUK@5aca5669.bb.sky.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:28] <ukscone> and ppl can still mess up grilled chicken
[17:29] <IT_Sean> stop being so negative
[17:29] <ReggieUK> my mum could ruin a boiled egg
[17:29] <jzu> hmmm... haggis...
[17:29] <ReggieUK> hard boiled! not runny
[17:29] <IT_Sean> your mum could probably ruin a raw egg. THat's no reason to not get tasty delicious grilled chicken onna sammich
[17:30] <ReggieUK> my ma would struggle to do anything these days, she's been dead a number of years now
[17:30] <IT_Sean> oh. sorry. :(
[17:30] <ReggieUK> ha, no worries, if I was going to get offended talking about her I wouldn't have brought her up in the conversation
[17:34] <IT_Sean> ::Facepalm::
[17:34] <IT_Sean> customer: How can i get [feature] to work on [device] running [firmware]?
[17:35] <IT_Sean> me: [feature] is not supported on [device]s running [firmware].
[17:35] <IT_Sean> yme: you need to upgrade your firmware to [new firmware] for that feature.
[17:35] * piofcube (~piofcube@coms.openindieproject.org) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:35] <IT_Sean> customer: we don't want to upgrade to [new firmware]. Is there another way to get [feature]?
[17:36] <ReggieUK> there's a way but it'll cost them $10-20k for you to research it :D
[17:36] <IT_Sean> the way to get [feature] is to install [new firmware]!
[17:36] <IT_Sean> Oh how i would love to simply say "No." in reply.
[17:37] <ReggieUK> question is, why don't they want the firmware upgrade?
[17:37] <IT_Sean> probably becuase they haven't got a support contract, and would thus have to purchase the new version.
[17:39] <IT_Sean> or because reflashing thousands of devices would take a fuck of a long time.
