[14:53] <Anppa_> should I wake up, is it out yet? :]
[14:56] <DaQatz> Go back to sleep
[14:56] <DaQatz> That way I can get the pi before you get out of bed.
[14:56] <Anppa_> thanks
[14:56] <Anppa_> being at work 8 hours a day is better than complete lack of sleep
[14:59] <DaQatz> If sleep those 8 hours at work you have the rest of the day to yourself.
[14:59] <Anppa_> that's the plan :)
[14:59] <IT_Sean> wish i could get away with that. I work 9 hours a day.
[15:00] <DaQatz> IT_Sean, to do that you need to one of two things
[15:00] <IT_Sean> mhmm... ?
[15:00] <DaQatz> 1) Have a job that no one has any clue what you do.
[15:00] <DaQatz> 2) Or be middle management.
[15:01] <IT_Sean> I've got neither of those things.
[15:01] <IT_Sean> You also need an office with a door. Which i haven't got either.
[15:01] <IT_Sean> I have an office. Just no door.
[15:01] <DaQatz> Supply closets work too
[15:02] <Anppa_> have a door, but also have a window next to it
[15:02] <Anppa_> no blinds
[15:02] <IT_Sean> YOu also can't have a coworker in the office across the hall who has boundry issues, and just busts in at random intervals. Or customers who call wanting technical support.
[15:03] <IT_Sean> "I'm sorry... our support tech is currently having a nap. Please call back between the hours of 1pm and 1:03pm"
[15:06] * ukscone1 *yawns*
[15:07] * IT_Sean tosses a bit of popcorn into ukscone1 mouth mid-yawn
[15:07] <ukscone1> ugh got to do laundry today and i really don't want to go outside as i'm nice and cozy under the blankets
[15:07] <DaQatz> http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/electronic/ebad/?cpg=180NP
[15:07] <IT_Sean> why does laundry involve going outside?
[15:08] <Anppa_> that's where the creek is? :D

[16:33] <ukscone1> Gusts now 151 mph at Cairngorm Summit. Police have advised Scottish climbers to "put a jumper on"
[16:34] <Thorn_> yes
[16:34] <Thorn_> my floor is jumping up and down like an earthquake
[16:37] <ukscone1> Thorn_: just rang my sister and step father. they said they had to their cars down
[16:38] <ukscone1> one got blown about 5 foot
[16:38] <ukscone1> but it is a 2cv so it really doesn't count
[16:38] <IT_Sean> a moderatly powerful fart 'll knock over a 2cv!
[16:40] <ukscone1> i hoppe it's not windy in cheshire -- maybe the raspberry pi factory has been blown away so no raspi's until march
[16:40] <ukscone1> s/hoppe/hop
[16:40] <IT_Sean> :o
[16:40] <ukscone1> s/hop/hope
[16:40] <IT_Sean> i hope not as well!
[16:40] <ukscone1> bloody fingers
[16:40] <IT_Sean> cut them off
[16:40] <IT_Sean> :p
[16:40] <ukscone1> do as i want not as i type
[16:45] <UnderSampled|tab> I thought march was already the expected release date
[16:46] <RaTTuS|BIG> it's been bloody windy just down the road from warrington ..... calmish now....
[16:48] <Thorn_> UnderSampled|tab: november was the first release date :P
[16:48] <UnderSampled|tab> Thorn_: I remember
[17:06] <UnderSampled|tab> ukscone1: Any way the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me
[17:07] <ukscone1> UnderSampled|tab: :) just killed a man
[17:08] <ukscone1> Thorn_: actually there was no suggested november release date except in a ceertain females who shall remain nameless mind -- eben et all always said 4th quarter :)
[17:08] <traeak> ukscone1: still use imperial ?
[17:09] <traeak> hurricane season ?
[17:09] <ukscone1> traeak: of course -- none of these new fangled metric measures for me
[17:09] <traeak> ukscone1: hehe, i prefer cubits and furlongs myself
[17:09] <ukscone1> 20 fluid ounces to a pint (not the yankee 16), 8 pints to a gallow and 8 gallons to a great party
[17:09] <IT_Sean> yes, but how many litres to a horeman's boot!??
[17:09] <IT_Sean> *horseman's
[17:09] <traeak> hmm? yanks are those nothern aggressors
[17:10] <traeak> being called a "yank" in ireland was wierd
[17:10] <ukscone1> traeak: well i classify all americans to be yanks but if i was down south i'd be shot for saying that
[17:10] <traeak> i should have started calling the irish british or something :-p
[17:11] <ukscone1> they are all septics anyway
[17:11] <ukscone1> septic tank == yank
[17:11] <traeak> ukscone1: yeah, you definitely would, that's my knee jerk reaction :-p
[17:11] <traeak> ukscone1: i probably have about 15 different firearms to choose from depending on what size hole is desired :-p
[17:11] <ukscone1> i do it to friends in the south all the time -- you can actually see the smoke come out of their ears if you look carefully
[17:12] <traeak> hmm...they call you "limey" or something ?
[17:12] <ukscone1> yup
[17:12] <ukscone1> limey, scone, king richard, king arthur.....
[17:13] <traeak> scone? term for scottish ?
[17:13] <ukscone1> but they are all foreigners so they don't know any better
[17:13] <ukscone1> traeak: not as far as i know just a nickname i have been called by freidns in the area
[17:13] * traeak runs memtest to try to see if reseating the ram took care of the problem
[17:14] <traeak> wikipedia is usefyul t try to find insults
[17:14] <traeak> ukscone1: they could just call you a frenchie or something :-p
[17:15] <traeak> ukscone1: to me that would be more insulting than being called a yank
[17:15] <traeak> anyways
[17:17] <ukscone1> traeak: the worst is if they called me european
[17:17] * ukscone1 shudders
[17:17] <traeak> ukscone1: is that pretty par for the course for brits/irish/scots ?
[17:18] <traeak> i refer to some of my relatives as "eurotrash" :-p

[20:51] <traeak> interesting the slatedroid guys seem to think MIPs is more power efficient than ARM at the same performance
[20:55] <traeak> ahh..and an arm->mips recompiler is available (or will be)
[20:56] <IT_Sean> MIPS = May Imporve Performance Slightly :p
[20:56] <traeak> anyone know a list of what licensing fees the rpi folks had to pay ?
[20:57] <traeak> apparently h.264 is on that list, likely HDMI as well
[20:57] <ukscone1> traeak: for what?
[20:57] <ukscone1> oh the codecs
[20:57] <traeak> not just codecs
[20:57] <traeak> HDMI requires a license fee as well per unit shipped
[20:57] <ukscone1> highest was getting up there about 4% on one of the codecs
[20:57] <ukscone1> and i think one was something stupid like 7 or 8 %
[20:57] <traeak> also reading that MIPS charges much less than arm for licensing the instruction set, etc
[20:58] <ukscone1> i know liz is really pissed off about the licensing fees
[20:58] <piofcube> wasn't hdmi something like 4% plus 10K USD a year?
[20:58] <ukscone1> think added up about 30% of the cost of the board but i might be way off as it's been a while since liz mentioned it on the forums
[20:59] <traeak> does DVI require similar licensing fees ?
[21:00] <piofcube> there was something about adapters agreement giving dvi royalty free... but I cant remember anything about it
[21:02] <traeak> i guess the PITA of runnig a DVI->HDMI cable + audio cable when it's all in HDMI

[21:16] <commanderKern> is there any date
[21:16] <commanderKern> any approximation
[21:17] <commanderKern> <Thorn_> so next year ;)
[21:17] <Thorn_> jan/feb
[21:17] <commanderKern> really
[21:17] <Thorn_> hopefully
[21:17] <commanderKern> that's too bad
[21:17] <commanderKern> hopefully
[21:17] <commanderKern> ?
[21:17] <commanderKern> okay
[21:17] <Thorn_> there's no confirmed date
[21:17] <Thorn_> we were hoping to have them in dec
[21:17] <commanderKern> so no raspberry for christmas
[21:18] <Thorn_> i think they mentioned something about auctioning test boards before christmas
[21:18] <Thorn_> signed and all
[21:18] <Thorn_> but not really, no
[21:18] <commanderKern> yeah this charity crap
[21:18] * Guest43881 is now known as Jeemy
[21:18] <Thorn_> yeah
[21:18] <Thorn_> bloody charities trying to do good in the world, how dare they?
[21:18] <Thorn_> :>
[21:19] <UnderSampled|tab> ukscone1, piofcube, traeak: they should have used displayport
[21:19] <commanderKern> everything is better with charity
[21:19] <commanderKern> no sorry with bluetooth
[21:19] <Thorn_> yeah they dont have to pay tax for a start :D
[21:20] <traeak> bt is something like $1 per unit
[21:20] <commanderKern> no this is really a great project
[21:20] <commanderKern> but i can't get over the fact that theere is no raspberry with built in wifi
[21:21] <Thorn_> there might be in future boards
[21:21] <Thorn_> when they get le-way with manufacturers
[21:21] <commanderKern> really
[21:21] <commanderKern> i wanted to wait anyway
[21:21] <Thorn_> and imo it's kind of a requirement for having them in the education sector
[21:21] <commanderKern> i thought s too
[21:21] <commanderKern> it is a requiremnet for everything today
[21:21] <commanderKern> no wifi no fun
[21:22] <commanderKern> please make sure to se a good chipset then like atheros;)
[21:22] <Thorn_> ugh
[21:22] <traeak> UnderSampled seems like displayport would be good depending on cost of connector...can displayport also transport audio ?
[21:22] <Thorn_> i sincerely hope they dont resort to atheros if they ever do :(
[21:22] <commanderKern> what
[21:22] <commanderKern> because it's good?
[21:22] <Thorn_> i've had about 12 wireless devices total that use atheros chips over the past 2 years
[21:23] <commanderKern> if there is wifi in the board i will buy
[21:23] <Thorn_> the wifi burned out after ~6 months on all of them
[21:23] <Thorn_> one lasted a week
[21:23] <commanderKern> oaky
[21:23] <traeak> commanderKern: usb wireless is pretty cheap now
[21:23] <commanderKern> yes but it sucks
[21:23] <commanderKern> because i don't have that many usbs on that raspberry
[21:23] <traeak> cpu heavy i know
[21:24] <commanderKern> yes yes
[21:24] <Thorn_> you can always use 2 gpio pins as data, and the gpio 5v for power, and wrap the usb driver to run on it :P
[21:24] <Thorn_> (not actually sure if that would work fwiw)
[21:25] <commanderKern> i want my pi with sugar tha's all;)
[21:25] <Thorn_> :>
[21:26] <commanderKern> just wanted to make sure you are not ruining one of the best projects of the decade by keeping it cheep and 'charitable'
[21:27] <Thorn_> oh, "you" ? nobody here is actually involved with the raspberry pi founders :)
[21:27] <Thorn_> they wont bless the irc channel :(
[21:27] <commanderKern> so this is not the official irc?
[21:27] <Hoernchen> duh
[21:28] * Thorn_ gently points to the topic
[21:28] <commanderKern> okay
[21:28] <commanderKern> i should probably read the descriptions
[21:29] <commanderKern> so you are telling me they are building a project without irc
[21:29] * IT_Sean slaps commanderKern wiht the topic
[21:29] <Thorn_> yeah i dont think they need an irc channel ;p
[21:29] <Thorn_> it's a community thing really
[21:30] <commanderKern> every good priject needs irc
[21:30] <commanderKern> except you are close for criticism or conversation or ..
[21:30] <Thorn_> uhm
[21:30] <commanderKern> nevermind no irc no wiki no decent blog
[21:30] <commanderKern> i am out of here cya
[21:30] * commanderKern (~ich@g231035151.adsl.alicedsl.de) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[21:30] <Thorn_> they're directly tied to broadcom
[21:30] <Thorn_> and they have a wik
[21:30] <Thorn_> erm
[21:31] <IT_Sean> and a blog
[21:31] <IT_Sean> what a wanker
[21:31] <merlin1991> :nod:
[21:31] <Thorn_> see i try to refrain from being blunt
[21:31] <Thorn_> what a twat
[21:32] <Thorn_> tbh, he got me on "every good priject needs irc"
[21:32] <IT_Sean> wassa "priject" anyway? :p
[21:32] <Thorn_> no idea, have to ask him
[21:33] <IT_Sean> that sounds like some sort of illness that makes your piss funny
[21:33] <Thorn_> yeah, every decent funny piss illness needs an irc channel
[21:33] <Thorn_> infact every illness needs an irc channel
[21:33] <Thorn_> infact why dont you lads join for a chat in #gonorrhea
[21:34] <IT_Sean> did we touch a nerve?
[21:34] <Thorn_> ?
[21:34] <IT_Sean> you sound angry
[21:34] <Thorn_> haha, no
[21:34] <IT_Sean> oh. okay. :p
[21:44] <piofcube> I thought he was going to start swearing in Klingon for a moment.
