[0:10] <AnotherBot> Twitter: Raspberry_Pi: @ColinTGraham Speaking as someone who was very social and emotional 20 years ago, I'm pleased to be able to prove you wrong! - http://twitter.com/Raspberry_Pi/statuses/162311197750853633
[0:14] <AnotherBot> Twitter: Raspberry_Pi: @evilhackerdude Broadly speaking, you can't - we've run out. Mail us if you think you have a very special case, though! - http://twitter.com/Raspberry_Pi/statuses/162312180312719360
[0:14] <AnotherBot> Twitter: Raspberry_Pi: @ColinTGraham We know. It's a big problem (which isn't ours to fix); Personally, I believe strongly it starts in the home & playground. - http://twitter.com/Raspberry_Pi/statuses/162312352421781504

[0:22] <AnotherBot> Twitter: Raspberry_Pi: @ColinTGraham Woeful, isn't it? Maths teacher friends of ours have found that showing salary charts of those w the A Level counts for a lot. - http://twitter.com/Raspberry_Pi/statuses/162314320292741120
[0:22] <AnotherBot> Twitter: Raspberry_Pi: @ColinTGraham (Which, of course, sucks in a whole different way.) - http://twitter.com/Raspberry_Pi/statuses/162314377939263489
[0:23] <DaQatz> AnotherBot is a bit spammy to have in the main chan.
[0:23] <ShiftPlusOne> I think the tweets aren't spam
[0:23] <AnotherBot> Twitter: Raspberry_Pi: @Trive77 On the contrary - our power consumption is under a watt for the main processor, and that's something we designed in. - http://twitter.com/Raspberry_Pi/statuses/162314540334333952
[0:23] <AnotherBot> Twitter: Raspberry_Pi: @evilhackerdude Bung us an email anyway. You never know. ;) - http://twitter.com/Raspberry_Pi/statuses/162314685507571712
[0:23] <ShiftPlusOne> maybe get rid of the @ tweets though
[0:24] <ShiftPlusOne> since... there's no context to half of them
[0:24] <DaQatz> Keep the bot in #raspberrypi-bots
[0:24] <DaQatz> So that anyone who wants to see them can.
[0:25] <ShiftPlusOne> ....but I don't want to be in raspberrypi-bots
[0:25] <DaQatz> Then don't go to the channel
[0:25] <MystX> ..
[0:25] <tsdedst> twitter.com :P
[0:25] <ShiftPlusOne> that's the plan.
[0:26] <MystX> Ill fix it to ignore @ tweets when i get home from work

[1:49] <ReggieUK> why should bot haters have to 'opt' out of their inane crap?
[1:50] <MystX> Well I agree that having lots of bots is silly
[1:50] <MystX> But having one bot with some useful functions would be preferred but most people
[1:50] <MystX> by*
[1:51] <ReggieUK> of course but pibot is the only one doing anything useful, and that's the weather......
[1:51] <ReggieUK> the rest of them are dross
[1:52] * UnaClocker (~unaclocke@24-113-85-150.wavecable.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:52] <MystX> In your opinion
[1:52] <DaQatz> PiBot does logs as well.
[1:53] <DaQatz> Need to write a new translation module too.
[1:53] <MystX> Imo having rss updates printed in chan is awesome. If not here, for my chan
[1:54] <MystX> But im bias
[1:54] <MystX> ed
[1:54] * kcj (~casey@unaffiliated/kcj1993) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:55] <DaQatz> Well a general rule of thumb. If the bot gives info with a direct request from people, it will annoy them.
[1:56] <DaQatz> Which is one reason I muted the welcomes for this channel.
[1:57] <tntexplosivesltd> in this case they happen so infrequently that it isn't an annoyance
[1:57] <tntexplosivesltd> and it's always good to hear news from the r-pi team
[1:58] <MystX> Saves checking the site every 5 minutes

[4:07] <_inc> is there a mobile phone out there which you can control the sms functions from a connected machine?
[4:08] <_inc> preferably via bash terminal
[4:08] <MystX> use a 3g stick?
[4:08] <MystX> otherwise, any android phone + adb
[4:09] <_inc> oh hello, thats a standard feature of 3g sticks?
[4:09] <MystX> i think some of them are able to do sms
[4:09] <SpeedEvil> Most can.
[4:09] <SpeedEvil> Some plans don't support SMS though
[4:09] <MystX> And im sure someone's made a command line api for them
[4:09] <SpeedEvil> google 'at command' SMS PDU
[4:10] <_inc> cheers gents
[4:11] <_inc> I'm thinking remote command to get GPS location from car
[4:11] <_inc> though that could all be done on an android really
[4:12] <MystX> This could be useful..
[4:12] <MystX> The SMS part
[4:13] <_inc> sms coverage is better than 3g data where i am

[5:17] <sightlight> hello
[5:17] <sightlight> anybody planning to game on the raspberyypi
[5:17] <sightlight> ?
[5:19] <mrdragons> I plan to make a MUD on it, so yes
[5:19] <mrdragons> :P
[5:19] <sightlight> mud
[5:20] <sightlight> ?
[5:20] <sightlight> what is MUD?
[5:20] <mrdragons> Multi-User Dungeon
[5:20] <mrdragons> Text-based online RPGs
[5:21] <mrdragons> Kinda
[5:21] <sightlight> an online game rpg.
[5:21] <sightlight> text based?
[5:21] <sightlight> no graphics?
[5:21] <mrdragons> Correct
[5:22] <sightlight> wouldnt that look horrible?
[5:22] <mrdragons> Depends on how good you are at formating text, lol
[5:23] <sightlight> black and while?
[5:23] <sightlight> white*
[5:23] <mrdragons> Most terminals support color output these days
[5:24] <sightlight> are you already developing it, or you will make this on the pi?
[5:24] <mrdragons> I'm going to make this on the pi, although I may start developing it now
[5:24] <mrdragons> I may make it IRC based just for teh lulz
[5:24] <sightlight> what language would you use?
[5:25] <mrdragons> Probably python for it's versatile data structures and very nice linux support
[5:25] <mrdragons> And string tools
[5:26] <SpeedEvil> Kinda orthoganal to pi really

[5:27] <sightlight> good you can program
[5:27] <DaQatz> mrdragons, Which muds have you played?
[5:28] <mrdragons> sightlight: Python is an interpreted language, you don't (need to) compile it.
[5:29] <mrdragons> Just "python script.py" to run a program
[5:29] <mrdragons> DaQatz: Honestly never got much into them, although I've played aardmud and elephant(?) and thought they were interesting.
[5:30] <DaQatz> Hmm my mother still plays on AardWolf
[5:30] <DaQatz> I used play AstroMud
[5:30] <mrdragons> Or is that what it's called? I dunno lol
[5:30] <DaQatz> But that was like 15 years ago.
[5:31] <SpeedEvil> I quit muds after I stopped and looked at 'score' once.

[5:32] <SpeedEvil> And realised that my 'low time' char had 500 hours on it.
[5:32] <SpeedEvil> This is the reason I don't make fun of WoW ddicts.
[5:32] <DaQatz> That depends a lot on the mud.
[5:32] <Thorn_> it gotta be the right shade'a brown
[5:32] <DaQatz> If you know what you are doing you can reach max level in 1 day.
[5:33] <DaQatz> In most muds.
[5:33] <mrdragons> Yeah, when I was younger I used to be a pokemon addict... I think I seriously had about 1000 hours total altogether on my games
[5:33] <SpeedEvil> These were ones where you could probably hit max level in perhaps 10-15 hours
[5:33] <DaQatz> Never liked pokemon
[5:33] <DaQatz> Never liked wow either
[5:33] <SpeedEvil> But the more you put into a char, the slower it was to level, but the more ultimately powerful.
[5:34] <DaQatz> Again that depends on the mud
[5:34] <SpeedEvil> Dark and shattered lands.

[6:10] <sightlight> xonotic!!
[6:10] <sightlight> xonotic raspberrypi
[6:10] <sightlight> !
[6:10] <mrdragons> I dunno how well it'll run, but okay
[6:11] <sightlight> the video of quake runs 30 below
[6:11] <sightlight> I hope they improve the kernel a bit to make it stable
[6:11] <mrdragons> I expect heavier games like xonotic to run at maybe 15 fps max
[6:12] <mrdragons> Quake 3 is pretty light.
[6:12] <mrdragons> Relatively speaking of course.
[6:13] <sightlight> you speaking of xonotic in max or low? or doesnt matter?
[6:13] <mrdragons> Well, I suppose you could probably get it to run decently in low settings
[6:15] <sightlight> is 15 fps ok?
[6:15] <mrdragons> Eh...
[6:15] <sightlight> im going to download an app like fraps or something
[6:15] <mrdragons> Not really, it gets a bit choppy in high-speed games like xonotic
[6:16] <sightlight> and compare with this netbook
[6:17] <sightlight> you know a program like fraps for linux?
[6:17] <mrdragons> I bet sauerbraten will run really well on it, that should be cool if it works ok with gles
[6:17] <mrdragons> Nah
[6:18] <sightlight> what is the frame rate we need for xonotic? also I wonder how the got that frame per second counter on the quake video
[6:19] <mrdragons> Then again, that qauke demo was 1920x1024 on max iirc, xonotic might run really well on it on lower settings

[6:22] <sightlight> would really like that
[6:23] <sightlight> the team havent realease the images of the OS's to VM it.
[6:23] <sightlight> see how it does.
[6:24] <sightlight> i hope the kernel had improve some.. its been half a years since that demo.
[6:24] <sightlight> half a year*
[6:24] <sightlight> they must of had time to improve that.
[6:24] <sightlight> and i heard on the forum that the kernel had a patch and all
[6:24] <sightlight> they have it,

[13:26] <Jaseman> i've got 11 x old school nokia phone chargers here
[13:27] <Jaseman> i wonder if its worth getting a micro usb adapter
[13:27] <Jaseman> and using those to power my raspberry
[13:27] <Jaseman> i think the adapter will cost the same as just buying a new charger though
[13:28] <victhor> look the current output rating on the unit
[13:28] <Jaseman> anyone know what the price will be on the official power supplies that will be available through the store?
[13:28] <victhor> the B uses 700 mA or so I've heard
[13:28] <Jaseman> its 5.7v 800 ma
[13:29] <FireFly> Jaseman, I actually got an adapter with my last Nokia phone that converts from the two old plugs to microUSB
[13:29] <Jaseman> the adapters cost about ??2 on ebay
[13:30] <Caver> I can see all sorts of adaptors being made up to get power from various different sources
[13:30] <Jaseman> but all depends how much a new charger costs in comparison
[13:30] <victhor> 5.7, that's a bit too much
[13:30] <Jaseman> would it fry it?
[13:31] <Jaseman> from what i understood the raspi was quite tollerant
[13:31] <Caver> no
[13:32] <Caver> from the forum "the Raspberry Pi will accept voltages from 6V to 20V"
[13:32] <chris_99> wow
[13:32] <chris_99> thats very tolerant
[13:32] <Caver> I think they know kids are likely to try odd power sources
[13:32] <Jaseman> so it should be fine then
[13:32] <RaTTuS|BIG> ttp://www.amazon.co.uk/Ex-Pro-USB-Mains-Charger-Charge/dp/B001SGXGGA/ref=wl_it_dp_o_npd?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3384TI6969SJF&colid=1H9F2QC1SERGW <- that will power it
[13:32] <Caver> if it gets over volted it'll shut down
[13:33] <RaTTuS|BIG> http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ex-Pro-USB-Mains-Charger-Charge/dp/B001SGXGGA/ref=wl_it_dp_o_npd?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3384TI6969SJF&colid=1H9F2QC1SERGW
[13:33] <Aquilus_> Will a 5V/0.7A phone charger work?
[13:33] <Caver> should do
[13:33] <RaTTuS|BIG> yeah should do
[13:33] <Caver> the actual SoC runs at 3.3V I think, so there is a DC to DC converter that does the final conversion
[13:34] <Jaseman> i looked at that link you just posted
[13:34] <Jaseman> but it has no cable on it
[13:34] <Caver> lol I wonder if the price of micro usb phone chargers will spike when the pi is released :P
[13:34] <RaTTuS|BIG> yarg - case i ahve usb to micro usb cables.... let me find another
[13:35] <Jaseman> what we want is a cheap one...
[13:35] <Jaseman> with the correct plug on the end and at least a bit of wire
[13:35] <RaTTuS|BIG> http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-Micro-USB-Mains-Charger/dp/B0028QHJSK/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1327581293&sr=1-1 ?
[13:35] <Jaseman> so it doesnt have to be mounted to the mains socket

[13:36] <Jaseman> that aint bad
[13:36] <Jaseman> ??2.90
[13:36] <Caver> yeah
[13:36] <RaTTuS|BIG> you can get some at the pound shop everybow and then but I'm not 100% sure about them
[13:36] <Caver> to start with I've got a old powered usb hub and come old usb --> microusb cables
[13:37] <Jaseman> the only thing I have with micro usb connectors is my playstation controllers....
[13:37] <Jaseman> and a usb hard drive
[13:37] <RaTTuS|BIG> Caver - you need to make sure that they are power usb and not data ones also [as the data one wil be limited to 500ma I think
[13:37] <RaTTuS|BIG> dont quote me though
[13:38] <Caver> it is - it quite happily charges my phone, even when the computer is off
[13:38] <victhor> Caver, that is not true for the final board
[13:38] <Jaseman> for ??2.90 its not erally worth taking a risk
[13:38] <victhor> it has no voltage regulator for 5V so 20V will fry it. It requires 5V, +/- 0.5V I suppose.
[13:38] <Caver> victhow: whats not true?
[13:39] <victhor> that the r-pi can run at 6V-20V
[13:40] <Caver> http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/260 quite right
[13:40] <Caver> I sit corrected
[13:40] <Jaseman> that ??2.90 adapter doesnt list the voltage
[13:40] * Caver sits here being wrong in his wrongness
[13:40] <Jaseman> are you sure its 5v?
[13:41] <victhor> if it's usb it's 5V
[13:41] <victhor> unless it's some piece of crap charger that is unregulated

[13:43] <Aquilus_> From a phone or something?
[13:43] <Jaseman> only those old nokia 5.7v ones
[13:44] <Jaseman> which would require a micro usb adapter

[13:46] <Jaseman> some of them are 3.7v
[13:46] <Jaseman> and some are 5.7
[13:46] <victhor> the one I have is conveniently 5V
[13:46] <Jaseman> i may have another oly adapter which runs at 5v
[13:46] <Jaseman> but nothing with a micro usb on the end

[13:55] <Caver> lol ... I know
[13:56] <Jaseman> are they making 10,000 in the second batch as well?
[13:56] <Jaseman> does anyone know
[13:56] <Aquilus_> That'll depend on how quickly the first one sells, I imagine.
[13:56] <Jaseman> well i think we all know the answer to that
[13:56] <Caver> I know they don't start to cover the initial dev costs until about 30k have been sold
[13:57] <Caver> so they will defo want to make a 2nd batch
[13:57] <Jaseman> well i hope they manufacture more than 10k for next batch
[13:57] <Jaseman> or there will be a lot of very frustrated people

[14:01] <Jaseman> can i have 10 thousand first class stamps?

[14:04] <Caver> probably get the entire 10000 batch in a transit no problem
[14:04] <IT_Sean> I was referring to the amount of time it would take to load them
[14:04] <IT_Sean> 10000 individually packaged raspis? Thats a lot of boxes
[14:04] <Jaseman> would be interesting if they were all tagged to see where they end up
[14:05] <Jaseman> i wonder who will be the first in new zealand to get one
[14:06] <ukscone> damn there are 5 bars of unguarded chocolate on the wife's side of the bed and i have toothache :(
[14:06] <Jaseman> lol
[14:06] <Caver> lol
[14:06] <IT_Sean> thats why they are unguarded :p
[14:06] <Jaseman> riflle through her knicker drawer instead
[14:06] <Jaseman> to take your mind off it
[14:06] <Caver> just suck on the other side

[14:06] <ukscone> she didn't know about the toothache

[14:11] <Jaseman> which is leaner
[14:11] <ukscone> Caver: my channel my rules :)
[14:11] <Jaseman> debian or damn small linux
[14:11] <Jaseman> or are they the same?
[14:11] <ReggieUK> beat me to it ukscone
[14:11] <IT_Sean> well, damn small linux is pretty damn small.
[14:12] <ukscone> IT_Sean: the delay in reporting is a bit iffy but no matter what his career as a tv anchour is over
[14:12] <Jaseman> when i did those python video tutorials...
[14:12] <Jaseman> we downloaded a very small debian
[14:12] <Jaseman> it was like 40mb download
[14:12] <IT_Sean> ukscone: yup.
[14:12] * Caver is being sad and setting up qemu, so I can start making my own software SD cards to try on it anyway
[14:13] <Jaseman> i dont even know what qemu is
[14:13] <Jaseman> heard it mentioned a few times though
[14:13] <Jaseman> goodle search pending
[14:13] <Caver> it's a computer emulatoer
[14:14] <Caver> so you can emulate a arm cpu
[14:14] <IT_Sean> qemu = Quite Excellent Manly Underthings
[14:14] <IT_Sean> no? :p
[14:14] <Caver> ahahah
[14:14] <Caver> I like idea of manly
[14:14] <Jaseman> emulator
[14:14] <Jaseman> is it like a virtual machine?
[14:15] <Caver> yes
[14:15] <Caver> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qemu
[14:15] <Caver> could think of it as like vmware, but able to emulator all sorts of processors and architectures
[14:16] <IT_Sean> Quivering Edible Marzipan Underwear
[14:16] <Caver> <-- lunch - brb
[14:16] <IT_Sean> HAHA
[14:16] <Jaseman> ill just wait till the real thing comes along
[14:17] <Jaseman> i noticed with python....
[14:17] <IT_Sean> Speaking of... is VMWare any good? and how difficult is it to set up?
[14:17] <Jaseman> the processor really makes a difference to performance
[14:17] <Caver> back
[14:17] <Caver> vmware - yeah it's not bad
[14:17] <Jaseman> vmware used to be good....
[14:17] <ukscone> IT_Sean: depends on what you want to do and if you have cash to throw at it
[14:17] <Jaseman> but its crap under windows 7
[14:17] <Jaseman> because the NAT networking doesnt work
[14:18] <Caver> but I don't think you can emulate non PC architectures with it
[14:18] <ukscone> IT_Sean: if it is for personal use virtualbox is pretty good
[14:18] <IT_Sean> ukscone: my company has the cash to throw at it, and we need to get it running to support our customers that are too cheap to buy a proper server. :/
[14:18] <Jaseman> im very impressed with oracles virtual box thingy
[14:18] <ukscone> IT_Sean: then vmware is the way to go then
[14:18] <ukscone> it's the one all the corps use
[14:18] <Caver> I use vmware player all the time so I can have test windows XP/Vista/Server2003/7 setups
[14:18] <IT_Sean> Yeah, it's what we are going to get. I just wanted to make sure i wasn't in for a world of pain when i went to set it up.
[14:18] <Jaseman> and the microsoft virtual pc aint bad either
[14:19] <Caver> virtual box is great, but I do wonder if oracle will screw it up, as they're not exactly doing well with everything else they got from sun
[14:19] <IT_Sean> Can i install it on Win 2008 Server (64 bit) ?
[14:19] <Caver> yes
[14:19] <Jaseman> well ive only run xp on it under win7 and its alot faster than doing it with vmware
[14:20] <Caver> IT_Sean - if the hardware support is right, ESXi is a lot more efficent
[14:20] <Caver> jaseman: did you install the proper vmware drivers on the virtual XP setup?
[14:20] <IT_Sean> we are installing VMWare. It's what most of our clients want to use. I just wanted to know if it was going to be a painful setup :p
[14:21] <Jaseman> yes
[14:21] <Caver> fair enough
[14:21] <Jaseman> it's okay once the thing has booted up
[14:21] <IT_Sean> So, i appricate the advice on alternatives, but, VMWare it is. the decision has been made above my head.
[14:21] <Caver> maybe windows 7 sucks as a host OS
[14:21] <Jaseman> but from the time you fire it up
[14:21] <Jaseman> you have to wait a long time
[14:21] <Caver> <-- using ubuntu and it works a treat
[14:22] <Jaseman> after you get past login...
[14:22] <Caver> though ... IMHO if you can put the virtual images on a SSD, it so worth it, as hard disk access is the main slow down on any emulated setup
[14:22] <Jaseman> and the start button appears
[14:22] <Jaseman> it takes ages until the menu is responsive
[14:22] <Jaseman> with vmware

[14:22] <Caver> nods ... on my intel core2 3GHz ... from start to windows XP login prompt is about 4 seconds
[14:22] <IT_Sean> Basically, i just need to install our own app server on it, and make sure it works. I won't actually be USING it :p
[14:23] <Caver> IT: aha
[14:23] <Jaseman> its the part after login that is slow
[14:23] <IT_Sean> it just has to run SQL Server & our own soffware
[14:23] <Caver> :)
[14:23] <Jaseman> but once its settled down it runs okay
[14:23] <ReggieUK> IT_Sean, it'll be fine

[14:23] <Caver> or the performace will suck
[14:24] <Jaseman> has anyone ever used dosbox?
[14:24] <Caver> I have but not for a while

[14:25] <Jaseman> i think dosdox can rnu on arm
[14:25] <Jaseman> dosbox rather
[14:25] <Caver> well it can, but as it can't do dynamic instruction translation it will be *sloooooow*
[14:26] <Caver> so your 700MHz arm will probably perform like a Pentium 100 ... *if* that
[14:26] <Jaseman> well for those old msdos games...
[14:26] <Jaseman> you need it to be slow
[14:26] <Caver> might do games like monkey island etc
[14:26] <rm> which will be fine for many DOS apps :)

[14:31] <Jaseman> can i save a text file on my sd card - who cares? just get some porn on
[14:31] <Hopsy> and, do we know the release date now? :p
[14:31] <SpeedEvil> Text can be porn!
[14:31] <Jaseman> no we dont
[14:31] <IT_Sean> Hopsy: NOOOO!
[14:31] <IT_Sean> READ THE BLOODY WEBSITE.
[14:31] <Hopsy> okay, clear :(
[14:31] <Hopsy> thanks :')
[14:31] <Jaseman> we all want to know that
[14:32] <datagutt_> Who will buy me one lol
[14:32] <datagutt_> I suspect myself
[14:32] <Jaseman> they will be like star wars figures
[14:32] <Jaseman> impossible to get hold on
[14:32] <IT_Sean> Listen up people (and noobs): The BEST source for RasPi release date info is the website. If you join the mailing list, you will be notified the MOMENT the RasPi goes on sale.
[14:33] <rm> well, not necessarily
[14:33] <IT_Sean> well... unless your email shits itself.
[14:33] <Jaseman> itll be easier to buy a buzz lightyear on christmas eve
[14:33] <rm> I don't see anyone promising instant and to the moment mailing list notify
[14:33] <IT_Sean> um... Liz has said that the mailing list will be used to notfiy you when the raspi is avail.
[14:34] <rm> yes but, "the MOMENT"?
[14:34] <rm> sure, an hour or two after it's on the shop
[14:34] <IT_Sean> Okay... perhaps not the EXACT femosecond....
[14:34] <rm> but no one promises to the second
[14:34] <Jaseman> i hope the first batch all have to get recalled
[14:34] <IT_Sean> why!?
[14:34] <Jaseman> and that i get one from the second batch
[14:34] <rm> also it takes a lot of time to just send out 60000 e-mails
[14:34] <IT_Sean> Jaseman: don't be a twat.
[14:34] <rm> you typically can't do a lot in parallel
[14:34] <Jaseman> so i can wind up all these desperate people who cant wait
[14:35] <IT_Sean> Now now now, there is no need for you to be a dingleberry
[14:35] <Jaseman> i want that smaller version
[14:35] <Jaseman> the usb stick sized one
[14:36] <IT_Sean> too bad. you can't have the smaller version
[14:36] <rm> it was just a prototype
[14:36] <Jaseman> but that one was cooler
[14:36] <rm> model A is exactly the same size as B
[14:36] <IT_Sean> It's not enough for you to have a $35 dev board, is it? It needs to be small enough to fit in your arse?
[14:37] <Jaseman> well that wound be a bonus
[14:37] <Caver> ah and back to porn again
[14:37] * ReggieUK emails liz to make sure the board edges are extra sharpened by the workhouse kids

[14:41] * rm sings Khil's trololo song
[14:41] <IT_Sean> ukscone: you are evil.
[14:42] <Jaseman> i think i'll get a model a
[14:43] <datagutt_> model b ftw
[14:43] <ukscone> IT_Sean: yes i've been told that many tines although i prefer to think of myself as machivellian or maybe roveian
[14:43] <Jaseman> im interested to know what you can't do that the model b can
[14:43] <IT_Sean> evil.
[14:43] <Jaseman> in terms of software
[14:43] <IT_Sean> B FTW
[14:43] <ukscone> Jaseman: well the model A won't hurt as much when inserted anally as the usb slot doesn't stick up as much
[14:44] <IT_Sean> Jaseman: the B has ethernet, and more RAM than the A. Other than that, they are the same.
[14:44] <Caver> the lower ram will be a problem
[14:44] <Jaseman> i bet a lot of things will still work
[14:44] <ukscone> it's more like what the model a can do that the b can't
[14:44] <chris_99> you can't get a Model A out of the first 10,000 though Jaseman
[14:44] <Jaseman> i know that....
[14:44] <Caver> I wonder if you can disable the graphics side of it, and then get the full 128Mb to play with
[14:44] <ukscone> on the b you have a chip between the usb and soc which blocks a lot of hacks related to usb
[14:44] <Jaseman> i doubt ill get a model b from the first batch
[14:44] <Caver> synic!
[14:45] <chris_99> heh
[14:45] <Caver> I just hope I don't blow my 1st one up too quickly
[14:45] <Jaseman> maybe you can extend the ram using a usb stick
[14:45] <chris_99> i've decided i want to make a little cd ripping center/music player using mine

[14:46] <Jaseman> how many cds do you have?
[14:46] <chris_99> thats not really extending the RAM Jaseman, just creating more swap space
[14:46] <Jaseman> call it what you like....
[14:46] <Jaseman> you know what i mean
[14:46] <victhor> swap != ram
[14:47] <victhor> what windows does is swapping.
[14:47] <Jaseman> well what im saying is....
[14:47] <Jaseman> maybe you can lift some weight off the innards
[14:47] <Jaseman> and put some load onto a usb stick
[14:47] <Caver> memory accesses over a USB bus are not going to be fast!
[14:48] <Jaseman> maybe fast isnt a requirement
[14:48] <victhor> it's not fast, it's so slow it'll become unusable!
[14:48] <Jaseman> it depends what the task is
[14:49] <Jaseman> you might say do this task.. ill be back in the morning to check how you're getting on
[14:49] <victhor> it will lower RAM usage if the swappiness level is high enough, but switching to background applications will become too slow
[14:49] <Jaseman> if you talk to your raspi that is
[14:49] * Hopsy (~kvirc@77.63.163.19) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[14:49] <chris_99> i wonder if you could solder another RAM chip onto it i'm guessing the surface mount pins are quite tiny though
[14:50] <Jaseman> somebody will make a ram pack for it
[14:50] <Jaseman> sooner or later
[14:50] <ReggieUK> for what?
[14:50] <ReggieUK> the pi
[14:50] <Caver> unlikely the memory is literally soldered under the main SoC chip
[14:50] <chris_99> oh is it, interesting
[14:50] <ReggieUK> it's a PoP configuration
[14:50] <Caver> it's the kind of soldering only a robot can do reliably!
[14:50] <victhor> it's on top
[14:50] <chris_99> PoP?
[14:50] <ReggieUK> package on package
[14:50] <Jaseman> gert could do it
[14:50] <chris_99> ah
[14:51] <Jaseman> what does gert look like
[14:51] <piofcube> Take a look at GPIO to MMC controllers... much slower than the normal RAM but seems much faster than USB
[14:51] <Caver> no drinking for a week
[14:51] <Jaseman> has anyone ever seen him>
[14:51] <Caver> steady the hands
[14:51] <Jaseman> hes like the stig
[14:51] <piofcube> Plus there's plenty of linux support for them
[14:51] <Caver> erm ... no I don't think so
[14:51] <ReggieUK> but it has mmc support on board
[14:51] <Jaseman> its time to hand it over to our untamed solderer
[14:52] <Caver> LOL
[14:52] <piofcube> I thought the MMC was already occupied with the SD and RAM?
[14:52] <ReggieUK> mmc is occupied with SD, didn't know about ram
[14:53] <piofcube> I was thinking that tapping into the existing MMC would be more of a problem than adding an extra onto the GPIO... Just a WAG ;-)
[14:54] <ReggieUK> but I'm not sure what the point is
[14:54] <victhor> what does MMC have to do with RAM?
[14:55] <IT_Sean> Some say his nose is a soldering iron, and when a RasPi boots successfully, one of his legs gets longer. All we know is he's called the GERT.
[14:55] <ReggieUK> and sparkfun do an sd breakout board if you want to get at the socket without hassle
[14:55] <Caver> What could possibly go wrong ...
[14:55] <piofcube> point could be to add extra memory for things that don't need fast r/w or add an extra SD card slot
[14:56] * Hopsy (~kvirc@77.63.163.19) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:57] <piofcube> victhor: From the little I've looked into it, there's some MMCs that have full linux support and will act as the interface to DIMMs and SD cards
[14:57] <Caver> cool
[14:57] <victhor> like those SATA ramdisks they had a while ago?
[14:58] <Caver> though doesn't the if your going to expand it that much, why not buy something chunkier to start with argument come into play?
[14:58] <Caver> aside from fun and general geekyness
[14:58] <victhor> once 512 MB RAM becomes less expensive they might start putting 512 MB
[14:58] <IT_Sean> Caver: fun,, and general geekyness
[14:59] <Jaseman> do you think they could make an EVEN cheaper version?
[14:59] <victhor> I know a PoP development board that used to be 256 MB but was upgraded to 512 MB with no price change. The price of the thing leads me to believe they have a huge profit margin
[14:59] <piofcube> Well... you could argue that if you have an expansion card which plugs into the GPIO, if at a later date you want to play with something else or the R-Pi breaks, you will still have the add-on to use next time.
[15:00] <Jaseman> im never going to use the GPIO
[15:00] <Jaseman> so i could have save a few quid there
[15:00] <victhor> sad they took out the I2S :(
[15:00] <Caver> well maybe *a* quid
[15:00] <piofcube> LOL
[15:00] <Jaseman> when the think cost ??20
[15:00] <Jaseman> 1 pound counts
[15:00] * IT_Sean rolls his eyes
[15:01] <Caver> depends how poor you are I guess
[15:01] <Jaseman> well lets face it....
[15:01] <Jaseman> if it was ??100
[15:01] <Jaseman> there would be much less interest
[15:02] <ReggieUK> doubtful it would've saved a quid
[15:02] <Caver> nods .. mainly as that price point starts to get into the other dev boards
[15:02] <ReggieUK> it would've cost them to have 2 designs
[15:02] <ReggieUK> what's the point?
[15:02] <piofcube> For most people, I don't think there's a need but it might just push newer DIY stuff forward... Hell, we might even get those RAM discs back... I really could do with a few of those but I couldn't find any for sale last time I looked... I used to have a few vesa local bus units which was great.
[15:02] <Tobias|> If it was that much, people'd be getting other boards, Jaseman
[15:02] <Jaseman> i just wonder whats the cheapest they could do
[15:02] <Caver> well 3 ... there's already A & B ...
[15:02] <ReggieUK> anyway, if you don't want the gpio on the pi, do this:
[15:02] <ReggieUK> http://hackaday.com/2012/01/25/custom-microcontroller-using-only-a-dremel/
[15:03] <victhor> remove all voltage regulators... you'd need a bunch of power supplies but the board would cost less
[15:04] <Jaseman> if you had one great psu.....
[15:04] <Jaseman> you wouldnt need any
[15:04] <victhor> use a computer power supply.
[15:04] <victhor> the only thing it lacks is 1.8V
[15:05] <Caver> whats 1.8V used for?
[15:05] <Jaseman> could you use a standard computer PSU to power it?
[15:05] <Jaseman> i have lots of those spare
[15:06] <victhor> sure... they have 5V. It's a waste of power thougj
[15:06] <piofcube> You could make your own bramble powered from one PSU LOL
[15:06] <Jaseman> it would be too bulky
[15:06] <victhor> some won't regulate properly if you have too little load on it though
[15:07] <Tobias|> Would probably be easiest just to use a couple of USB ports on a computer anyway
[15:07] <Jaseman> how about off a cigarette lighter?
[15:07] <piofcube> The small PSUs designed for smaller form factors should be better at handling smaller loads, right?
[15:07] <victhor> I don't see why not.
[15:08] <Jaseman> i just hope someone starts a seperate shop
[15:08] <Caver> Jaseman, wouldn't it catch fire
[15:08] <IT_Sean> They still may not regulate properly without the expected load, though.
[15:08] <Jaseman> selling pi accessories
[15:09] <piofcube> Power your usb hub and other stuff from it also?
[15:09] <Jaseman> docking station
[15:09] <Caver> mind you ... usb power source, SD card, cables, USB keyboard/mouse ... it's going to end up costing more than the actual board
[15:09] <Jaseman> raspberry pi docking station
[15:09] <Jaseman> oh yeah
[15:10] <Caver> :)
[15:11] <IT_Sean> Caver: except that a lot of people will already have spares lying around
[15:11] <piofcube> You could also make room for your ipad/android/etc on the docking station ;-)
[15:11] <Caver> IT_Sean: yeah ... just saying
[15:11] <Caver> the only HDMI device I've got is my main tv
[15:11] <IT_Sean> HDMI > DVI adapter?

[15:14] <Jaseman> how much does a network print server cost these days?
[15:14] <Caver> well the 2 uses I've got in mind are GPIO fun and games - all of which can be done over SSH and python
[15:15] <Caver> the other is as a xmbc, for which plugging it into the HDMI on the tv is fine
[15:15] <Caver> *especially* is HDMI CEC works
[15:15] <Caver> is = if
[15:15] <Jaseman> hmm 20-30 quid
[15:15] <Jaseman> raspberry pi is cheaper than a print server
[15:16] <Caver> heheh any wonder they looks like they are going to sell well
[15:16] <Jaseman> but I absolutely HATE CUPS
[15:17] <Caver> what about a mug then?
[15:17] <Jaseman> ha ha
[15:17] <Caver> ah LOL ... the printnig server
[15:17] <Jaseman> i assume you know what CUPS is
[15:18] <Caver> I do :P
[15:18] <IT_Sean> CUPS = Crappy [something] Print Server?
[15:18] <Jaseman> well you could use it a print server
[15:18] <Caver> CUPS is great right up until it doesn't do what you want plug and play wise ...

[15:18] <Caver> unix ..

[15:18] <IT_Sean> :p
[15:19] <piofcube> Maybe if more printers had linux support it would be easier :S
[15:19] <Jaseman> you can defend it all you like but it just doesnt work as well as any windows shared printer
[15:19] <Caver> mmm well most modern printers do
[15:19] <piofcube> apart from many canons and kodaks to start with
[15:19] <Jaseman> windows printer drivers just work

[15:19] <Jaseman> yeah

[15:21] <Jaseman> if you send a pdf to that through cups you only get page 1
[15:21] <Caver> it just pipes postscript to 'em and it just works (tm)
[15:21] <Jaseman> but if you send the print direct to the ip port
[15:21] <Jaseman> it prints the whole doc
[15:21] <Caver> surely the driver on the windows printer ought to convert it to the correct printer language
[15:22] <Caver> yeah ... windows driver problem there
[15:22] <Jaseman> something gets lost in translation somewhere
[15:22] <Jaseman> but using the same windows driver....

[15:38] <Jaseman> yeah it was one of those objects of desire for me
[15:39] <Jaseman> that you always want and never manage to own
[15:39] <Jaseman> like a porsche 911
[15:39] <Caver> *grins*
[15:39] <Caver> good man ... yeah I always lusted after a proper floppy drive for my BBC Model B
[15:39] <Jaseman> maybe i should hunt one down
[15:39] <IT_Sean> Which, a microdrive, or a 911?
[15:39] <Jaseman> just to put that to rest finally
[15:39] <IT_Sean> :p
[15:39] <Jaseman> both!
[15:40] <Jaseman> a microdrive - in a 911
[15:40] <Caver> phooor
[15:40] <IT_Sean> Just make sure the 9112 is left had drive. the RHD models don't have a place to put your left foot, due to the placement of the fuel tank.
[15:40] <Caver> mounted in the center of the dash
[15:40] <IT_Sean> *911
[15:41] <Jaseman> do they have a glove box?
[15:41] <Jaseman> to keep your microdrive in
[15:41] <Caver> LOL I can see a retro 80's car tv program comming on
[15:41] <IT_Sean> Of course they do! :p
[15:41] <Jaseman> thats ok then
[15:41] <IT_Sean> You can also keep gloves in it!
[15:41] <Caver> who needs airwolf, when you can have your 911 with microdrive power
[15:41] <IT_Sean> (am i the only one that keeps gloves in the glove box?)
[15:41] <Jaseman> you'll never press the rubber keys with gloves on
[15:42] <IT_Sean> I love my car. All the buttons are glove sized.
[15:42] <IT_Sean> (i.e. easily pressed w/ big heavy winter gloves on)
[15:42] <Jaseman> is it made by fisher price?
[15:42] <IT_Sean> no.
[15:43] <Jaseman> what is it?
[15:43] <IT_Sean> 1986 BMW M5.
[15:43] <Jaseman> nice
[15:43] <Caver> heheh what millage?
[15:43] <Jaseman> I have a 2002 audi a4
[15:43] <IT_Sean> Caver: about 200k
[15:43] <Jaseman> mine is 78k
[15:43] <Caver> cool ... always fun to have something mega miles and still working
[15:44] * Caver mine is 147k
[15:44] <IT_Sean> To be fair... the engine internals have had a going over.
[15:44] <Caver> oh yes?
[15:44] <IT_Sean> Cylinders have been bored out and a custom camshaft fitted to increase displacmenet from 3.5L to 4L
[15:44] <IT_Sean> Also running a less restricitive intake manifold and exhaust headers.
[15:44] <Jaseman> and a sinclair microdrive fitted ;-)
[15:45] <IT_Sean> Suspension has had a going over as well.
[15:45] <Caver> LOL @ 3.5L to 4L ...
[15:45] <Caver> right ... so not quite new, but not too far off it :P
[15:45] <IT_Sean> Gearbox and rear limited slip diff are 100% origional, however.
[15:45] <IT_Sean> why is that funny?
[15:45] <Jaseman> i bet the insurance is high
[15:45] <Jaseman> and tax
[15:45] <Caver> depends how old you are and where you live I guess
[15:45] <Jaseman> my tax disc is stupidly expensive
[15:45] <IT_Sean> Jaseman: nope. Not really. And we don't pay tax here based on displacment, so...
[15:46] <IT_Sean> I live in the US. So, no road tax.
[15:46] <Caver> yeah lucky git!
[15:46] <Jaseman> ah kewl dude
[15:46] <IT_Sean> :p
[15:46] <Jaseman> didn't realise that
[15:46] <Caver> ??215 for a years tax here
[15:46] <ctyler> They just build the road tax into the fuel price.
[15:46] <Jaseman> im going to california in may
[15:46] <IT_Sean> Well, yes.
[15:46] <IT_Sean> But, the point is, there is no road tax based on the sort of engine you have :p
[15:46] <Jaseman> 15 awesome days of road trip
[15:47] <Jaseman> L.A., vegas, yosemite, san fran. and back to L.A.
[15:47] <IT_Sean> I am paying the same fuel tax as everyone else on the road. At, least everyone else that's running 96 octane.
[15:47] <Jaseman> a few days in santa monica at the end
[15:47] <Jaseman> i cant wait!
[15:47] <Caver> yeah a car in america is sorta not optional

[15:48] <Jaseman> pontiac grand hunk
[15:48] <IT_Sean> I wouldn''t have a tuned M5 anywhere, of course, but, i would have some sort of car.
[15:48] <zer0her0> i'm an american and i can take or leave cars
[15:48] <Thorn_> is it out yet
[15:48] * PiBot slaps Thorn_ across the face with a cast iron pan.
[15:48] <IT_Sean> HAHA!
[15:49] <zer0her0> i grew up in DC and NYC, love "good" public transportation, most US cities have horrible public transportation.
[15:49] <Jaseman> i should own a rasperry pi before i go to america (sigh)

[15:51] <Jaseman> ill rest it on the pillow at my side....
[15:51] <Jaseman> and when i wake in the morning
[15:51] <Caver> Jaseman can only double penatrate if it's a model d
[15:51] <Caver> *b
[15:51] <Jaseman> ill have the GPIO in my cheek

[15:52] <IT_Sean> Well... *All* the pins? let's not give him that much credit.
[15:52] <Caver> lol no GPIO pins on the production one ...
[15:52] <Caver> only the beta's
[15:52] <MartijnVdS> IT_Sean: GPIO ALL THE PINS
[15:52] <Caver> solder pads = yup
[15:53] <IT_Sean> Didn't Liz or Eben say something about hte first batch having GPIO pins due to a miscommuncation @ the factory?
[15:53] <IT_Sean> Or was that just on the beta boards?
[15:54] <Jaseman> why woundlt you want pins on it?
[15:54] <ReggieUK> gertboards will be screwed without gpio won't they?
[15:54] <IT_Sean> Jaseman: the intent is to NOT have the pins presoldered, because everyone wants a different arrangment
[15:54] <ReggieUK> ahh
[15:54] <IT_Sean> Some people want straight ones
[15:54] <ReggieUK> that's fine then
[15:54] <IT_Sean> some people want 90 bends
[15:55] <IT_Sean> some people like it on top
[15:55] <Jaseman> well i want pins
[15:55] <Caver> yeah not everyone is straight
[15:55] <IT_Sean> some people perefer the bottom
[15:55] <Jaseman> and jumpers too
[15:55] <Jaseman> got to have some jumperrs
[15:55] <Caver> hands up who wants bottom?
[15:55] <IT_Sean> so, it will be up to you to source the sort of pin header you want and solder it yourself
[15:55] <Jaseman> can you solder mine for me?
[15:55] <Jaseman> if i send it to you?
[15:55] <ReggieUK> I'll do it
[15:56] <Caver> yeah sure
[15:56] <ReggieUK> 12month turnaround
[15:56] <IT_Sean> You can send it to me :p
[15:56] <Caver> top/bottom, straight / 90 deg
[15:56] <Jaseman> hmm on second thoughts
[15:56] <IT_Sean> heh
[15:57] <Jaseman> im going to have lego technic beams on the edge of my pi
[15:57] <IT_Sean> I prefer not having the pins on from the factory.
[15:57] <Jaseman> so it can be clipped onto something with wheels
[15:58] <Aquilus_> Haha
[15:58] <Aquilus_> Connect it by wifi and use batteries, then drive it around.
[15:58] <Aquilus_> Now *that* would be a portable media center :p
[15:58] <IT_Sean> heh
[15:59] <IT_Sean> put a camera on it, and just program it to follow you around while playing a thumping bass line?
[15:59] <Jaseman> i might modify my son's lego train set
[15:59] <Jaseman> and fit it to that
[15:59] <Caver> *grins*
[15:59] <Caver> does anyone know about the camera options for it
[16:00] <Caver> I know there is a CSI or something port but nothing more about it
[16:00] <Jaseman> usb
[16:00] <Caver> yeah USB is an option, just trying to avoid that
[16:00] <Caver> I'm guessing CSI is some kind of standard
[16:01] <Jaseman> you planning to make a toilet cam or something?
[16:01] <Caver> ahaha
[16:01] <piofcube> LOL... put a dynamo on the flush to power the r-pi LMAO
[16:01] <Jaseman> you wont store much footage on an sd card
[16:02] <Jaseman> youll have to stream it via the internet
[16:02] <rm> there are 32 GB SD cards
[16:02] <Caver> no but can stream forever to the ethernet port
[16:02] <IT_Sean> There will, supposidly, be a camera addon later
[16:02] <IT_Sean> and... please... no toilet cams.
[16:02] <Jaseman> well you would be better off just having a long wire on the usb camera
[16:02] <IT_Sean> Noone wants to see that.
[16:03] <Caver> something like https://market.android.com/details?id=com.pas.webcam but I could motorise it

[16:14] <Jaseman> well its only the monitor.....
[16:14] <Jaseman> thats the bulk of the cost
[16:15] <Jaseman> without monitor its like ??30
[16:15] <Jaseman> which is acceptable
[16:16] <Jaseman> might be able to get a dvi monitor and an adapter cheaper

[16:33] <Jaseman> you have to power down
[16:33] <rm> depends
[16:34] * Edwin512 (~edwinrijk@82.197.216.75) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:34] <Caver> yeah you can hotswap, just tell them to power off before you remove
[16:34] <Caver> you do it with the hdparm command
[16:34] <Jaseman> is that a linux command?
[16:34] <Caver> yes
[16:35] <Jaseman> so storage is definately not a problem then
[16:35] * Shift_ (~Shift@124-148-182-42.dyn.iinet.net.au) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:35] <Jaseman> how about a dvd rom drive?
[16:36] <Caver> hdpram -S I think ... to be honest these days I just use the Disk Utility to switch it off before removal
[16:36] <Jaseman> you might want to connect one of those
[16:36] <Jaseman> although i tend to rip them to iso files
[16:36] <Caver> you want to use a Pi for ripping?!
[16:36] <Jaseman> but you have to rip them first from the dvd
[16:36] <Caver> might be a tad slow
[16:36] <rm> it might just work
[16:37] <Caver> again, usb SATA ... there are lots of SATA DVD drives
[16:37] <Jaseman> i would most likely rip them using another pc
[16:37] <Jaseman> to iso file

[16:38] <Jaseman> i wonder if i could survive with only a raspi
[16:38] <Jaseman> and no other computer
[16:38] <Jaseman> i might try it for a week
[16:38] <rm> that'd be an interesting endeavor
[16:38] <SpeedEvil> Jaseman: It's limited.
[16:38] <Caver> LOL ... would try!
[16:38] <rm> to me the most painful issue would be the small RAM
[16:38] <SpeedEvil> Jaseman: My ~1999 laptop is faster.

[16:39] <SpeedEvil> Though less memory.
[16:39] <Jaseman> i suppose it depends what you need to do
[16:39] <LiENUS> rm 256 is a ton of ram
[16:39] <LiENUS> 256MB*
[16:39] <LiENUS> or is it 256 megabits?
[16:39] <rm> I have 8 GB both in my desktop and in my server
[16:39] <SpeedEvil> bytes
[16:39] <Jaseman> stop being so bloody perdantic

[16:40] <LiENUS> Jaseman, me?

[16:40] <Thorn_> lol
[16:40] <LiENUS> @ Tobias|
[16:40] <Jaseman> whatever!
[16:40] <noname^^> it's loads for any custom written, single application
[16:41] <Jaseman> i cant stand that when people are picking at someone because they made a slight error
[16:41] <noname^^> but it's def the most limiting factor if you wanted to use it as a general purpose computer
[16:41] <noname^^> with stock linux software
[16:41] <LiENUS> i remember using a compy with 24MB ram running windows 98 heh
[16:41] <noname^^> like say, a browser
[16:41] <Jaseman> im starting to think minimal
[16:41] <Jaseman> less is more
[16:41] <Jaseman> keep it simple
[16:41] <Caver> it's modern browsers that are to be honest just about a complete OS in themselves by the time you've got flash etc running
[16:42] <Jaseman> back to basics
[16:42] <Caver> are so heavy weight
[16:42] <Caver> I think the lack of flash will be a problem
[16:42] <Caver> at least to begin with for that
[16:42] <Jaseman> can you run facebook without flash?
[16:42] <Caver> no prontube :P
[16:42] <Jaseman> i mean just basic facebook
[16:42] <Caver> for the most part - yes
[16:42] <Caver> it's just html and javascript
[16:42] <ReggieUK> if you're going to use the pi for facebook, you really should be punched

[16:43] <Jaseman> do it
[16:43] <LiENUS> buy one raspi for facebook
[16:43] <Jaseman> hit me
[16:43] <LiENUS> one for myspace
[16:43] <LiENUS> one for slashdot
[16:43] <LiENUS> one for cnn
[16:43] <LiENUS> yer still only at like 100%
[16:43] <Tobias|> I'd prefer people used a raspberry pi for facebook than bought $2000 facebook machines, ReggieUK
[16:43] <LiENUS> get a kvm and just switch to what website you wanna browse
[16:43] <ReggieUK> I couldn't give a shit about other machines and facebook
[16:43] <Jaseman> some of us like to use facebook
[16:44] <Jaseman> from time to time
[16:44] <noname^^> oh there's flash for arm. not sure it's the right arm-version for raspberry pi though
[16:44] <Jaseman> and if you're living off a pi for a week
[16:44] <noname^^> but it feels like most sites are abandoning flash anyway
[16:44] <ReggieUK> Yup, Jaseman, you most certainly seem like a facebook type
[16:44] <Jaseman> you might want to check whats happening on your wall
[16:44] <Caver> ReggieUK, you have met modern kids? facebook is kinda part of basic life to them
[16:44] <Jaseman> its called socializing
[16:45] <Caver> noname^^, yes they are - at last
[16:45] <Tobias|> Caver, quiet you! People who use this hardware on that website need punching! Raagh
[16:45] <ReggieUK> see, there was me thinking that socialising consisted of talking to people in real life
[16:45] <ReggieUK> go figure
[16:45] <Tobias|> </not a moron at all>
[16:45] <Caver> it's really video that still uses flash on the whole

[16:46] <Jaseman> communicating
[16:46] <Caver> nope, just saying it's a *part* of socialising
[16:46] <Jaseman> well if i want to run facebook on my pi i will
[16:47] <Caver> however I'd still maintain kids and facebook and Pi *is* going to happen
[16:47] <Jaseman> and i dont care what you think
[16:47] <Jaseman> i dont have any issue with what you do with your pi
[16:47] <Tobias|> Jaseman, you're trying to please a guy who things people using arbitrary hardware on an arbitrary website should be physically assaulted
[16:48] <Tobias|> thinks*
[16:48] <ReggieUK> you and sightlight should make a facepipad
[16:48] <Jaseman> yes we will
[16:48] <Caver> uhuh
[16:48] <Jaseman> and we will send you an invite
[16:48] <Jaseman> so we can all look over circuit diagrams together
[16:48] <Jaseman> and while away the fun hours
[16:49] <ReggieUK> yeah, cos I can't do that right now, without all those things....
[16:50] <Jaseman> what are you going to be doing with your pi Reggie?
[16:50] <ReggieUK> me, well, I was thinking about making it into a control system for my motorised telescope mount
[16:50] <Jaseman> what nobel project
[16:50] <DaQatz> I will use mine to take over world.
[16:50] <noname^^> you probably need two for that
[16:50] <Thorn_> I will use mine to take over the overworld.
[16:51] <Caver> cool ... with a GIRT board or something of your own design?
[16:51] <ReggieUK> that would be automatic focusing on the telescope itself (stepper motors), control of temperature of the telescopes, cloud detection etc.

[17:32] <Jaseman> so she deleted all those
[17:32] <Jaseman> but she had *.doc as a filter
[17:32] <Jaseman> not realising that there were excel files there
[17:33] <Jaseman> and other files types that didnt show in word's file open dialgue box
[17:33] <Aquilus_> Haha
[17:33] <Jaseman> she said to me...
[17:33] <Jaseman> ive helped you out and tidied up the server
[17:34] <Jaseman> thanks very much i replied
[17:34] <Aquilus_> I hope you kept backups.

[17:39] <Jaseman> even the F keys are pointless

[17:40] <Jaseman> on the number 3
[17:40] <Caver> then it would be a british keyboard
[17:40] <Crazytails> jas #
[17:40] <Crazytails> Jaseman: #
[17:41] <Crazytails> There already is a pound sign on 3
[17:41] <Crazytails> :P
[17:41] <RaTTuS|BIG> # == pound ;-p
[17:41] <Jaseman> lets have a universal keyboard layout
[17:41] <Caver> ?? = pound ...
[17:41] <Caver> # = hash
[17:41] <Aquilus_> Both hash and pound symbols are on my 3 key :p
[17:41] <SpeedEvil> I just use US
[17:41] <SpeedEvil> However.
[17:41] <Jaseman> because i hate it when i go to do an @ and get "
[17:41] <piofcube> I guess I should get round to sorting my shell out on the server ;-)
[17:41] <Jaseman> because its defaulted to US keyboard
[17:42] <Caver> which os is this?
[17:42] <SpeedEvil> I've gotten to teh stage I can touch type it - including most symbols. As I'm using the keyboard under the blankets.
[17:42] <Jaseman> im not even going to ask
[17:42] <SpeedEvil> This is not unrelated to the fact that the current temperature in here is 5C
[17:43] <Jaseman> buy an electric heater
[17:43] <piofcube> Balmy 16C in my work area
[17:43] <Jaseman> theyre quite efficient these days
[17:43] <SpeedEvil> Jaseman: Err...
[17:44] <Caver> electric heaters are by definition 100% efficent LOL
[17:44] <SpeedEvil> _all_ electric heaters are 100% efficient
[17:44] <Jaseman> well there you go then
[17:44] <Caver> just electricity per unit cost are a lot dearier than gas per unit cost
[17:44] <SpeedEvil> And it would cost me around 1600 quid to heat this place adequately with the current level of insulation.
[17:44] <SpeedEvil> H?ence why I'm saving up money for insulation.
[17:44] <Caver> there is a reason that people like gas heating ...
[17:44] <ReggieUK> get a hot water bottle
[17:44] <piofcube> Or you could say they are so inefficient they convert all electric to heat ;-)

[17:45] <Jaseman> not in work i dont
[17:45] <Jaseman> my room was So cold i complained
[17:45] <Jaseman> and they got me an electric heater
[17:45] <SpeedEvil> ...
[17:46] <Jaseman> because I work in a 200 year old house
[17:46] <Jaseman> with an oil heating system
[17:46] <piofcube> I find the oil filled radiators to be best suited to the job if it's a small area

[17:47] <Jaseman> i see horses outside my window

[17:50] <Jaseman> why cant you afford the bills?

[18:13] <Jaseman> : O
[18:13] <Jaseman> dont give me that
[18:13] <hamitron> from point of view of cost and the device, I'd be wasting money
[18:14] <Jaseman> you;ve already got a perfectly good pc
[18:14] <hamitron> but.... the one reason it could be cool, is lots of others will have one
[18:14] <Jaseman> that will outperform it
[18:14] <hamitron> I have 15 that will
[18:14] <Jaseman> yes exactly
[18:14] <hamitron> so only reason to get one, is for the community tbh
[18:14] <Jaseman> but you wont feel complete without one
[18:14] <hamitron> aha
[18:14] <Jaseman> there would always be a hole
[18:15] <Jaseman> where your pi should be!
[18:15] <hamitron> well, I certainly won't rush
[18:15] <hamitron> if there is a shortage, I will do without for a while
[18:15] <Jaseman> there's no 'if' about it
[18:15] <Jaseman> there will be a shortage
[18:15] <hamitron> I may wait till the 2nd batch then
[18:15] <Jaseman> me too
[18:16] <Jaseman> or third
[18:16] <hamitron> I was bidding on a laptop yesterday
[18:16] <Jaseman> oh yeah?
[18:16] <Jaseman> ebay?
[18:16] <hamitron> it went for ?24
[18:16] <hamitron> 800mhz via c3 cpu
[18:16] <Jaseman> thats a cheap laptop
[18:16] <hamitron> 256mb ram
[18:16] <hamitron> windows xp embedded
[18:16] <haltdef> got a samsung q1 somewhere
[18:17] <hamitron> that included delivery
[18:17] <haltdef> 900mhz celery, 2GB ram
[18:17] <Jaseman> i bought a eeepc
[18:17] <Caver> 2nd hand?
[18:17] <hamitron> Caver, yep
[18:17] <Jaseman> which had a broken touchpad
[18:17] <Jaseman> and then i bought a touchpad
[18:17] <Jaseman> and fitted it
[18:17] <Jaseman> its fine now
[18:17] <piofcube> I'm still trying to get linux installed on a couple of samuel 2 boards... I think I might have a bad IDE CDROM drive though which isn't helping.
[18:17] <hamitron> but it is more powerful than the pi, has a case, keyboard, drive, OS
[18:17] <hamitron> screen
[18:18] <Jaseman> for me the strengths of the pi are....
[18:18] <Jaseman> cheap
[18:18] <Jaseman> standard hardware
[18:18] <hamitron> piofcube, VIA C3 samuel?
[18:18] <piofcube> hamitron: Yeah
[18:18] <Jaseman> and the whole community idea that surrounds it
[18:18] <hamitron> what distro you reckon is best for them?
[18:19] <hamitron> Jaseman, in one :)
[18:19] <Jaseman> a sort of get back to basics and teach people philosophy
[18:19] <Jaseman> well ive been wondering about damn small linux
[18:19] <Jaseman> or debian
[18:19] <hamitron> but tbh, basics can be learnt on any cheap comp, if someone puts the effort in
[18:19] <piofcube> They say anything with a 2.26.2x I think.. can't remember exactly off the top of my head.
[18:19] <Jaseman> but lots of people are talking 'fedora'
[18:20] <Jaseman> ive never used fedora
[18:20] <hamitron> piofcube, a what? :|
[18:20] <piofcube> the kernel... sorry
[18:20] <Jaseman> but i think ill go with whatever the foundation deem to be 'the distro'
[18:20] <Jaseman> but i also like the idea of having an sd card for every distro
[18:20] <piofcube> The samuel 2 doesn't support cmov
[18:21] <Jaseman> and even selling sd card distros
[18:21] <hamitron> piofcube, indeed, so need distro compiled for i586 or below
[18:22] <hamitron> I'm torn between slackware and linuxfromscratch
[18:22] <piofcube> hamitron: I'm a little short on optical drives right now but I'll get some soon and have a bash and make a tutorial video as the Eden/Samuel 2 boards are cheap and popular on ebay
[18:22] <Jaseman> i think the x window is more important
[18:23] <Jaseman> lxde seems like the popular choice
[18:23] <hamitron> tutorial for what? :| I guess maybe worth it for a newbie
[18:23] <Caver> XFCE is ok too
[18:23] <hamitron> LXDE or fluxbox imo
[18:23] <Jaseman> fluxbox is lighter than lxde?
[18:24] <hamitron> but lets not start a "political" arguement
[18:24] <hamitron> :)
[18:24] <piofcube> tutorial showing how to set up the samuel 2 and where to get the distros from... Do a range of distros so they can see whcih they prefer.
[18:24] <Caver> *hides*
[18:24] <hamitron> Jaseman, I'd say it is different. fluxbox is easier to modify imo
[18:24] <piofcube> I had a hell of a job getting hold of older distros
[18:24] <Jaseman> i wouldnt even worry about distros just yet
[18:25] <Jaseman> they are still hammering them together from what i see
[18:25] <Jaseman> better to sit back for a bit
[18:25] <hamitron> piofcube, my aim is to run modern stuff, but rolled out for the older class of hardware

[18:25] <hamitron> Jaseman, I intend to make my own for the Pi, if I get one
[18:25] <hamitron> it is the only reason I want one ;)
[18:26] <Jaseman> your own distro?
[18:26] <hamitron> distro or OS or something
[18:26] <piofcube> hamitron: yeah, I'll be looking at that also... see what boot options there are to get round the CMOV problem etc
[18:26] <Jaseman> im thinking in terms of sd cards....
[18:26] <hamitron> piofcube, it isn't a boot option really, more just a compile time flag
[18:26] <hamitron> :/
[18:27] <Jaseman> i dont think its worth buying less than 16gb
[18:27] <hamitron> Jaseman, I'd say 512mb
[18:27] <Jaseman> when they only cost like ??9.99 each
[18:27] <hamitron> guess may as well get 16gb at that price
[18:27] <hamitron> :)
[18:28] <piofcube> The thing that annoyed/confused me was many of the live cds would work but wouldn't install LOL
[18:28] <Jaseman> i like the idea of making some tutorials myself
[18:28] * Caver (~Caver@nat1.nipltd.com) has left #raspberrypi
[18:28] <Jaseman> its time consuming though
[18:28] <Shift_> Jaseman, very
[18:29] <Jaseman> and most of its been done already....
[18:29] <Jaseman> but i might go in the direction of....
[18:29] <hamitron> piofcube, most of the GNU stuff doesn't really make great use of modern hardware. so even if set to use CMOV, not used a great deal
[18:29] <Jaseman> pointing people towards tutorials that already exisit
[18:29] <Jaseman> rather than rewriting them
[18:29] <piofcube> hamitron: true enough
[18:29] <Jaseman> phyton is python
[18:30] <Jaseman> whether you're on a pi or whatever
[18:30] <hamitron> you guys won't get tutorials off me I'm afraid :/ I hate paperwork and believe in working around stuff yourself ;)
[18:30] <hamitron> I will ofc give others pointers and help them if I can
[18:30] <hamitron> :)
[18:30] <Jaseman> what i want is an apprentice
[18:30] <hamitron> gtg, bbl o/
[18:31] <piofcube> cya
[18:31] <Jaseman> a fresh faced enthiastic person that knows nothing
[18:31] <Jaseman> who i can program
[18:32] <Jaseman> and they'll get really pleased and excited when you show them how to draw a polygon on the screen
[18:32] <Shift_> Jaseman, I had the idea of making a video series covering everything from basic chemistry to semiconductors to transistors to logic gates to logic circuits, ALUs, CPU architecture, assembly and finally a basic OS. The idea was that someone who is clueless about computers could build their own basic cpu and have it do stuff. I've got through the chemistry and semiconductors scripts and gave up 'cause it's waaaay too much work. =/
[18:32] <feep> <3
[18:32] <Jaseman> i know what you mean Shift

[18:33] <Shift_> Jaseman, yeah, now I am thinking it might be better to make a playlist of existing videos which would accomplish the same thing.
[18:33] <Jaseman> right
[18:34] <Jaseman> thats what the internet is all about

[18:34] <Shift_> piofcube, yup, pretty much. I checked khanacademy and found that they didn't really have any electronics or computer science stuff.

[18:39] <Jaseman> i was thinking the other day when i was playing with python...
[18:39] <Jaseman> how nice it is that i can turn to google when i get stuck
[18:39] <Jaseman> in the old days i might have one text book to rely on
[18:39] <Jaseman> the official 'pygame' site isnt very helpful
[18:40] <Jaseman> i found it was better to look for examples from other sites
[18:40] <Jaseman> to understand how to format the commands
[18:40] <Jaseman> the syntax
[18:40] <Shift_> Jaseman, which brings me back to what you were saying a few days ago... that people get discouraged if they hit a stumbling block and feel alianated and all that. Stumbling blocks are a fact of life and if you don't have the initiative to find alternative resources, then how the hell will you learn anything?
[18:41] <Jaseman> the searching is in itself a skill
[18:41] <Jaseman> if you think about it the successul people in the world....
[18:42] <Jaseman> theyve looked around them at what resources are at their disposal

[19:07] <jardiamj> uhu!! I found the perfect power supply for the pi... my old LG phone charger... 5V--700mA isn't it?
[19:07] <haltdef> yea
[19:07] <Caver> yes
[19:07] <haltdef> my n900's is 1A, gonna use that
[19:07] <SpeedEvil> jardiamj: possibly not
[19:08] <jardiamj> I have a bunch of those chargers but most of them are 500mA
[19:08] <SpeedEvil> jardiamj: 5V phone chargers may not actually output 5V
[19:08] <haltdef> :o
[19:08] <SpeedEvil> You need to verify that it will actually put out 5V with no load.
[19:08] <jardiamj> SpeedEvil: how is that?
[19:08] <haltdef> I'll get the multimeter
[19:08] <SpeedEvil> The 5V can be specced at 700mA
[19:08] <jardiamj> well I'll check that out of course...
[19:08] <SpeedEvil> In some cases, at no load, they can be significantly more.
[19:09] <haltdef> depends on the quality if the psu doesn't it
[19:09] <IT_Sean> aye, if it's for a mobile phone, it may not be regulated
[19:09] <IT_Sean> some rely on the built in regulation in the phone

[20:35] <MystX> Hi guys
[20:36] <zgreg> it'd be a bit sad if most of the first batch will be bought by people that just want a cheap HTPC
[20:36] <tntexplosivesltd> or people like sightlight
[20:37] <haltdef> hm, you running a bnc on amazon s3?
[20:37] <MystX> Not a bnc
[20:37] <haltdef> zgreg, I can see those people being disappointed if the only video format supported by the gpu is progressive h.264

[20:38] <haltdef> what's with the amazonaws hostname
[20:38] <SpeedEvil> Of course - this is useless if there are only binary codecs for it.

[20:47] <SpeedEvil> That's not really very awesome.
[20:47] <MystX> Also, runs at 0.5v
[20:47] <MystX> SpeedEvil: Why is that not awesome?

[20:47] <tntexplosivesltd> > remove socks
[20:47] <tntexplosivesltd> > feet warm
[20:47] <SpeedEvil> So it's only ~3 times smaller
[20:47] <MystX> =|
[20:47] <SpeedEvil> Also - making one is completely uninteresting.
[20:47] <tntexplosivesltd> ...
[20:48] <mrdragons> Which, in processor terms, would be incredibly smaller
[20:48] <MystX> The physical limit for silicone is ~11nm
[20:48] <SpeedEvil> Working out how to do a hundred billion on a die is _hard_
[20:48] <tntexplosivesltd> innovation, who needs it?
[20:48] <mrdragons> Exactly, right? We perfected the abacus thousands of years ago...
[20:48] <SpeedEvil> MystX: People have been saying that for _ages-
[20:48] <MystX> Because it's true
[20:48] <SpeedEvil> MystX: I vaguely recall articles saying 500nm was the limit.
[20:49] <tntexplosivesltd> .......
[20:49] <SpeedEvil> And it seemed true then.
[20:49] <MystX> Doubt it
[20:49] <tntexplosivesltd> are you kidding me?
[20:49] <tntexplosivesltd> think about it in terms of chemistry
[20:49] <tntexplosivesltd> carbon is smaller, so we can go smaller
[20:50] <SpeedEvil> Carbon is much smaller?
[20:50] <mrdragons> Yes...
[20:50] <MystX> SpeedEvil: 11nm ish is the physical limit. as in, a silicone transistor wont work at all past that. These ones work smaller, at lover voltages and higher currents. they are better in every way. If we can find a way to mass produce them, we'll be able to progress well past the 4-5Ghz barrier atm

[20:50] <MartijnVdS> Well there is the atomic size limit
[20:50] <MartijnVdS> and quantum effects
[20:50] <SpeedEvil> It's just that one transistor does not a chip make.

[20:50] <tntexplosivesltd> * it's
[20:51] <MartijnVdS> SpeedEvil: problem with 3d is cooling the inner bits
[20:51] <SpeedEvil> We've avoided 3d, as it seems expensive
[20:51] <mrdragons> Holy shit, do you hate progressing or something?
[20:51] <SpeedEvil> MartijnVdS: Well - yes and no
[20:51] <MystX> lol
[20:51] <MystX> Id love a CPU that runs at 0.5v
[20:51] <MartijnVdS> SpeedEvil: not Intel-Ivy Bridge "2.5d" ;)

[20:53] <MystX> Using ~30W of power
[20:53] <MystX> At the best of times
[20:53] <SpeedEvil> There are a number of ways of going rather more low power than have been done, which could ofset that. Then there is microfluidic cooling.
[20:54] <SpeedEvil> Which has major issues of its own of course.

[21:09] <traeak> the big question is: how far away are they from actually having a repeatble affordable manufacturing process
[21:09] <SpeedEvil> There have been similar claims several generastions away for ages
[21:09] <SpeedEvil> which is true is a fun question
[21:10] <mrdragons> Dunno, I just can't wait to see exactly how small they get
[21:10] <MystX> 1pm
[21:11] <mrdragons> Smaller
[21:11] <mrdragons> We must go sub-atomic
[21:11] <MystX> 1 pico meter. The whole die will be 1mmx1mm, and clocked at 100Ghz
[21:12] <MystX> And it draws its power from the particles and anti-particles popping into existance around it
[21:12] <mrdragons> lol
[21:12] <SpeedEvil> ~100pm is atomic spacing
[21:13] <MystX> Also it has a cup holder
[21:13] <mrdragons> Still too big

[23:10] <SpeedEvil> I really, really hope 10000 isn't enough.
[23:10] <SpeedEvil> And that I don't get one.
[23:10] <ShiftPlusOne> O_o
[23:10] <ShiftPlusOne> o_O
[23:10] <Simon-> you hope you don't get one? can I have yours then?
[23:10] <Aquilus_> o_o
[23:11] <SpeedEvil> I mean that they sell out really fast.
[23:11] <SpeedEvil> I plan on purchasing one
[23:11] <SpeedEvil> or even several.
[23:11] <SpeedEvil> However.
[23:11] <SpeedEvil> Given that my progress on projects will be slow - it's not impossible that bootstrapping from a growing community may not make them faster
