[0:41] <Tachyon`> Z2s in the UK if anyone wants will work out at about 12 quid + postage at cost from York to wherever you happen to be
[0:41] <Tachyon`> I'll be ordering wednesday so contact me before then if you want
[0:42] <hamitron> Z2?
[0:42] <Tachyon`> zipit wireless 2 - hackable handheld linux computer, there was talk of them yesterday
[0:42] <hamitron> or Z2s?
[0:42] <piofcube> That's the old Zuse right?
[0:42] <Tachyon`> they're being sold off cheap (in america)
[0:42] <traeak> where ?
[0:42] <Tachyon`> no, it's the zipit wireless 2
[0:43] <Tachyon`> google it, lol
[0:43] <piofcube> I was going to say... LOL...
[0:43] <traeak> hmm..did someting change with zipit availability in the last 2 moths?
[0:43] <piofcube> The Zuse 2 was made around the 40s ;-)
[0:43] <Tachyon`> http://66.147.244.180/~hunterda/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/poolrad1.jpg
[0:43] <Tachyon`> there's one running an old game
[0:44] <traeak> because a zipit for $50 is NOT a deal
[0:44] <traeak> nor is $35
[0:44] <traeak> i know they were selling for 15USD or so
[0:44] <traeak> i dont' know where to find those now
[0:45] <Tachyon`> if you're not interested, don't get any, heh, I'mnot twisting anyones arms, nor am I going to waste my time arguing it, there were issues with postage here, which I'm offering to reduce by buying in large numbers, nothing more or less
[0:45] <piofcube> They look nice :-)
[0:45] <hamitron> what sort of spec are they?
[0:45] <Tachyon`> one sec, I'll find the technical details
[0:45] <Tachyon`> it's quite limited but still, for the money
[0:46] <Tachyon`> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zipit_wireless_messenger_(Z2)
[0:46] <hamitron> well, I tend to be someone who likes very low spec stuff
[0:46] <hamitron> :)
[0:46] <traeak> its a jzprocessor
[0:46] <traeak> that i can google, finding the price i want...well that seems to be a problem
[0:46] <piofcube> MyTunez and MyPhotoz LMAO
[0:47] <Tachyon`> you kinda ignore the built in apps (it was aimed at teenagers as an IM device)
[0:47] <Tachyon`> and boot real debian etc. on it
[0:47] <hamitron> how much is postage?
[0:47] <hamitron> and is it just the device?
[0:47] <Tachyon`> are you in teh UK?
[0:47] <hamitron> East Yorkshire
[0:47] <hamitron> yeh
[0:47] <mrdragons> Can it run crysis?
[0:48] <hamitron> haha
[0:48] <piofcube> 12 quid seems more than reasonable considering the prices elsewhere.
[0:48] <Tachyon`> well, depends if you want all the packaging, 12 quid for unit and postage here + what it costs me to put it in a jiffy bag and put stamps on it
[0:48] <piofcube> mrdragons: You can but on lowest settings
[0:48] <mrdragons> Aw. :\
[0:49] <piofcube> Maybe with physx switched on ;-)
[0:49] <hamitron> is it just the device, or is there anything like charger with it?
[0:49] <Tachyon`> so probably about 90p + the stamps, lol, will be done at cost
[0:49] <Tachyon`> I assume there is a charger but whether it works on 230v is anyones guess
[0:49] <Tachyon`> if it does, you'll need a shaver plug to plug it in
[0:49] <Tachyon`> due to the american nature of it
[0:49] <hamitron> I'd be interested
[0:50] <Tachyon`> I'm getting 16 for myself, think they can be used as displays/input devices for my rpi cluster nodes
[0:50] <piofcube> Looks like a standard barrel DC supply
[0:50] <Tachyon`> the main limiting factor is teh 32MB of RAM
[0:50] <hamitron> 32MB ram is fine
[0:50] <Tachyon`> but for console apps, it'll do fine
[0:50] <hamitron> :)
[0:50] <hamitron> yeh
[0:51] <traeak> yeah 32mb definitley makes this an appliance
[0:51] <hamitron> !reserve
[0:51] <hamitron> ;/
[0:51] <piofcube> Portable SSH client or IRC... I wonder if the gameboy screen enlarger would work on it? ;-)
[0:51] <hamitron> erm, as in reserve, not "not reserve"
[0:51] <Tachyon`> lol
[0:53] <hamitron> Tachyon`, so do you need my details now?
[0:53] <Tachyon`> before wednesday, email them to hideki.adam@gmail.com with ZIPIT in the subject line ideally then I won't lose them
[0:54] <hamitron> you'll accept paypal or bitcoin?
[0:54] <Tachyon`> paypal, I don't use bitcoin for anything yet
[0:54] <hamitron> ok :)
[0:55] <Tachyon`> I'm hoping they'll be useful as a slave device for the rpi, baer in mind they have no USB but they do have internally TTL serial
[0:56] <Tachyon`> they weren't designed to be expanded at all
[0:56] <hamitron> oh, ofc
[0:56] <hamitron> just a nice toy anyway
[0:56] <hamitron> :)
[0:56] <Tachyon`> if they can be linked to the rpi as a console they'll be useful int aht sense, cheap keybaord/display for them
[0:57] <Tachyon`> not sure if the pi has ttl serial but I'd assume it does
[0:57] <piofcube> hunterdavis.com has lots of Z2 hacking tuts
[0:57] <hamitron> it has USB host, so can have serial
[0:58] <hamitron> but probably a cleaner way
[0:58] <ukscone> piofcube: yes someone did a nintendo screen mag mod and it was sweet
[0:58] <piofcube> Monkey island on it also :-)
[1:00] <ukscone> piofcube: most of hunter's posts are depricated wrt rootfs install instructions and can actually be detrimental to your zipit if you use them as they are so old so check mozzwald.com for the latest info and rootfs unless you want openwrt in which case google projectgus openwrt zipit
[1:00] * octeris (~remd@user-9654ea.user.msu.edu) has left #raspberrypi
[1:00] <Tachyon`> oh, scummvm, nice
[1:01] <piofcube> ukscone: Ah... good tip :-)
[1:01] <Tachyon`> I've not even looked to see what people have done with it as yet, lol
[1:01] <Tachyon`> it boots debian, that's all I need to know, if nobody has done so already I might knock up a kernel with a 4x8 cleartype font so it does 80x25 console
[1:01] <hamitron> Tachyon`, you should have my mail
[1:02] <Tachyon`> ah yes, got it
[1:02] <Tachyon`> I had some success with subpixel rendered fonts on the DS, managed to get 80 columns ot of a 256x192 screen fairly readably
[1:03] <piofcube> I just wish I hadn't promised my wife I would stick to my hardware budget from now on LMAO
[1:03] <Tachyon`> so 320x240 should be a breeze
[1:04] * feep (~feep@p5B2B4B76.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[1:07] <Tachyon`> lol
[1:07] <Thorn_> 80 columns out of 256?
[1:07] <Thorn_> that's like 3 pixels a character !
[1:07] <Tachyon`> yup, using subpixel rendering it is 9 pixels/character!
[1:07] <hamitron> anyways
[1:07] * johnthebear (~Johnthebe@c-24-11-54-36.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:07] <tntexplosivesltd> woah
[1:07] <hamitron> off to bed
[1:07] <Tachyon`> so used an 8x8 font and adjusted it to avoid a blue
[1:07] <hamitron> :)
[1:07] <hamitron> o/
[1:07] <Tachyon`> since the blue ones are hard to see
[1:08] * hamitron (~hamitron@just.screw-the.eu) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:08] * mrdragons (~lucas@175.45.25.92) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[1:08] <tntexplosivesltd> subpixel = only using 1 colour from a pixel?
[1:08] <Tachyon`> using 4 as on the Z2, I'd use a pixel doubled 6x8 font to make the requried 12x8
[1:08] <Tachyon`> yes
[1:08] <tntexplosivesltd> that's awesome
[1:08] <Tachyon`> it's how microsoft cleartype rendering works
[1:09] <Tachyon`> you have to watch for BGR/RGB ordering but otherwise it works quite well
[1:09] * mrdragons (~lucas@175.45.25.92) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:09] <tntexplosivesltd> that's pretty cool
[1:11] <Tachyon`> unfortunately to get it to work in linux is going to require some hacking at the fb console I suspect so might not be done quickly, lol
[1:12] <Tachyon`> unless someone has added it since I last looked which is entirely possible
[1:13] <Tachyon`> there's been a 4x6 fb font in the kernel for some time which would also give 80 columns but it's not what I'd call pleasing to the eye
[1:13] <Tachyon`> 3x5 glyphs in the main
[1:15] * Computer (~Computer@unaffiliated/computer) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:15] <Computer> would you condone using one of these as the heart beat server for a high avaialability server cluster
[1:16] <tntexplosivesltd> HELLO
[1:17] <tntexplosivesltd> HELLO COMPUTER
[1:17] <tntexplosivesltd> HELLO!!!!!
[1:17] <tntexplosivesltd> >:-(
[1:17] <tntexplosivesltd> HELLO
[1:17] <Tachyon`> the caps -.-
[1:17] <mrdragons> ping computer
[1:17] <tntexplosivesltd> Tachyon`: it's shouting
[1:17] <Tachyon`> it is not 1981 and we are not using early sinclair/apple machines
[1:17] <tntexplosivesltd> anyone get the reference?
[1:17] <tntexplosivesltd> no...?
[1:17] <Tachyon`> music,aye
[1:17] <tntexplosivesltd> fne then
[1:17] <Tachyon`> I remember that appearing when I was a kid
[1:17] <tntexplosivesltd> * fine
[1:18] <tntexplosivesltd> (IT Crowd)
[1:18] <koaschten> is it out yet?
[1:18] * PiBot slaps koaschten across the face with a cast iron pan.
[1:18] <Tachyon`> oh, actually, no, it's 1997
[1:18] <Tachyon`> I thought it was the 80s
[1:18] <Tachyon`> never mind
[1:18] <koaschten> thanks, now i can make scrambled eggs PiBot
[1:18] <Tachyon`> mind playing tricks on me
[1:18] <Tachyon`> oh right, not the radiohead album
[1:18] <Computer> tntexplosivesltd: have you seen the german version
[1:18] <Tachyon`> the speech recognising computer
[1:18] <tntexplosivesltd> no
[1:18] <tntexplosivesltd> Computer: nope
[1:18] <tntexplosivesltd> don't want to
[1:18] <Computer> its pretty bad
[1:18] <tntexplosivesltd> the boys at the mouse >.>
[1:19] <tntexplosivesltd> sounds dodgy
[1:19] <Tachyon`> lol, perhaps it's just not a team player
[1:19] <tntexplosivesltd> Das iTeam
[1:19] <tntexplosivesltd> Tachyon`: =D
[1:20] <Tachyon`> I think my favourite eps are 1x02 (soldering iron police etc.) and the street countdown one (4xsomething, I forget)
[1:20] <Tachyon`> not many pearls amongst the oyster guts in that series though -.-
[1:20] <Tachyon`> I prefer TBBT really
[1:21] <Tachyon`> the cannibal one was quite notable for the spoof piracy video
[1:21] <Tachyon`> half expect to see the americans steal and use it
[1:21] <tntexplosivesltd> TBBT?
[1:21] <Tachyon`> the big bang theory
[1:21] <tntexplosivesltd> ah yeah lol
[1:22] <tntexplosivesltd> season 4 of the IT crowd is pretty good
[1:22] <Tachyon`> aye, as was season 1
[1:22] <tntexplosivesltd> heh
[1:22] <Tachyon`> 2 and 3 were a bit disappointing though
[1:22] <tntexplosivesltd> hmm
[1:22] <Tachyon`> nothign really much jumped out at me
[1:22] <Tachyon`> you ever seen brass eye?
[1:22] <tntexplosivesltd> nope
[1:23] <Tachyon`> spoof documentary series that almost triggered a tabloid apocalypse
[1:23] <tntexplosivesltd> oreally?
[1:23] <tntexplosivesltd> what'd they do>
[1:23] <tntexplosivesltd> * ?
[1:23] <Tachyon`> it's by Graham Linehan who created the IT crowd
[1:24] <Tachyon`> oh, they did a p?dophilia special which the sun thought was real rather than satire
[1:24] <tntexplosivesltd> hahahaaaaaahahahah
[1:24] <Tachyon`> next day they had a front page with him reading "Is this the most hated man in britain" or something

[2:40] <The_Ball> why is there a bots channel? for bots running on raspberry pis or this channels bots?
[2:41] <koaschten> http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=YQIMGV5vtd4
[2:41] <The_Ball> yeah that's been making its rounds, pretty awesome
[2:42] <DaQatz> The bots channel is for testing, and for bots that would spam the channel too much.
[2:43] <DaQatz> Example someone had a twitter bot in there. Havn't seen it for a few days though.
[2:49] * Cemial (~hardcoreB@ip4da2366d.direct-adsl.nl) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[2:49] <victhor> I wonder if it's a poor choice to use a 1 turn trim pot for a current preset on a battery charger.
[2:50] * RITRedbeard (~RITReadbe@c-68-37-165-37.hsd1.nj.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:53] <SpeedEvil> victhor: As long as it's setup so that if the wiper disconnects, it goes off, OK.
[2:53] <tntexplosivesltd> koaschten: now we just need it decentralised
[2:58] <victhor> np, I have a series resistor to limit the lower end of the range. I thought of using the 1 turn ones, because it's rather intuitive to draw lines with a sharpie on the pot face to mark settings for different battery times, so I don't have to get a ohmmeter or a ammeter on the battery terminal to adjust the pot.
[2:58] <victhor> different battery types*
[3:00] <RITRedbeard> Anyone know a really cheap source of RGB+white LEDs?
[3:00] <tntexplosivesltd> nope
[3:00] <tntexplosivesltd> wait
[3:00] <tntexplosivesltd> rgb + white?
[3:00] <tntexplosivesltd> so 4 dies?
[3:01] <tntexplosivesltd> or are you after just rgb?
[3:02] <victhor> can't you get white by turning on the R, G and B channels instead?
[3:04] <RITRedbeard> RGB
[3:04] <RITRedbeard> white can be simulated with proper pwm sig
[3:04] <mchou> RITRedbeard: what's your definition of cheap?
[3:05] <RITRedbeard> ehhh
[3:05] <RITRedbeard> less than 0.50$ USD or equal to?
[3:06] <tntexplosivesltd> RITRedbeard: yeah, that's why I was asking XD
[3:06] <tntexplosivesltd> thought you had gone bonkers
[3:11] <RITRedbeard> I've been thinking of making a LED display
[3:11] <mchou> RITRedbeard: are you in US?
[3:11] <RITRedbeard> but if you used all LEDs it would be expensive
[3:11] <RITRedbeard> so you need to use polarization tricks
[3:11] <RITRedbeard> Yeah.
[3:11] * wiiguy (fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) Quit ()
[3:12] <mchou> RITRedbeard: what's the best price you found so far?
[3:12] <RITRedbeard> Expensive.
[3:12] * The_Ball (~The_Ball@122.150.108.38) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[3:12] <RITRedbeard> Very expensive.
[3:12] <mrdragons> How expensive?
[3:13] <RITRedbeard> I dunno, a little less than what Sparkfun was selling them for
[3:13] <RITRedbeard> and these were SMD RGB LEDs
[3:13] <RITRedbeard> in the various SMD sizes
[3:14] <mchou> I get get them at 0.40 but only in qty 4000
[3:14] <tntexplosivesltd> ypu want SMD?
[3:14] <tntexplosivesltd> * you
[3:15] <RITRedbeard> SMD would be nice
[3:15] <RITRedbeard> $0.40
[3:15] <RITRedbeard> USD?
[3:16] <mchou> RITRedbeard: so I think your 0.50 is a bit unrealistic unless your are ready to purchase in bulk
[3:16] <mchou> RITRedbeard: yup 0.40
[3:16] <mchou> USD
[3:16] <RITRedbeard> I would need 1,296,000 LEDs
[3:17] <mchou> RITRedbeard: heh
[3:17] <mchou> them you can get even better deal
[3:17] <mchou> should have told me earlier
[3:17] <RITRedbeard> I need to take a course in photonics and study optics
[3:17] <RITRedbeard> there has to be a way to use polarization without needing an LED for every pixel.
[3:18] <mchou> RITRedbeard: what kind of display you building?
[3:18] <slaeshjag> RITRedbeard: There is!
[3:18] <slaeshjag> RITRedbeard: The technology is called LCD
[3:18] <mchou> indeed
[3:19] <mchou> but LCD don't emit light
[3:19] * RITRedbeard nods.
[3:19] <mchou> they rely on a backlight
[3:20] <slaeshjag> indeed, but if you don't want a LED for every pixel... :P
[3:20] <mchou> RITRedbeard: seriously, what are you tring to build?
[3:21] <RITRedbeard> I'm not sure.
[3:21] <mchou> trying*
[3:21] <mchou> lol
[3:21] <RITRedbeard> It would be nice if there were a display technology that did not have backlights
[3:21] <RITRedbeard> thus did not have bezels
[3:21] <RITRedbeard> because then you could eyefinity it up/nvidia surround all day
[3:21] <slaeshjag> OLED?
[3:21] <RITRedbeard> no more damn bezels
[3:22] <RITRedbeard> why is oled supposed to be so good?
[3:22] <RITRedbeard> they don't last as long as normal diodes
[3:22] <slaeshjag> It's pretty much separate LED's per pixel
[3:23] <slaeshjag> I'm not sure exactly why, but it's a different technology than what's used in "normal" LEDs
[3:23] <mchou> RITRedbeard: you know there are such things as RGB LED backlights for lcds, right?
[3:24] <RITRedbeard> I know.
[3:24] <RITRedbeard> I'm not sure why RGB backlight matters
[3:24] <RITRedbeard> but that means you still need a bezel
[3:30] * kcj (~casey@unaffiliated/kcj1993) Quit (Quit: Procrast...)
[3:42] <ctyler> you need a bezel for side illumination, but you can also back-illuminate
[3:43] <ctyler> (what makes OLEDs cool is that they're printable)
[3:57] <Tachyon`> and look better and consume less power than LCD
[3:57] <Tachyon`> (well, backlit LCD)

[14:33] <spobey> like, nettops can be attached to the back of ones screen
[14:33] <Caver> all except for price ...
[14:33] <spobey> and are built to be portable

[14:33] <spobey> right now, wouldnt you agree that a nettop is as close as you'll get to a raspberrypi
[14:33] <spobey> ?
[14:33] <spobey> or am i wrong

[14:34] <Thorn_> i wanted pink not green :(
[14:34] <IT_Sean> Thorn... What the arse?
[14:34] <Tachyon`> not everyone uses a monospaced font
[14:35] <spobey> So
[14:35] <spobey> what can I get today that comes close to being a raspberrypi in terms of functionality and setup
[14:35] <spobey> and design
[14:35] <IT_Sean> A raspi
[14:35] <Caver> no idea ...
[14:35] <Caver> we're all fan boi's so can't think of other hardware :P
[14:36] <Caver> not ... but what a daft question!
[14:36] <Tachyon`> btw, zipit 2 machines will be available to UK people for 12 quid plus postage from York to you, will be ordering on wednesday, email hideki.adam@gmail.com with ZIPIT in the subject if you want any, I'll contact just before wednesday with final instructions for paypal etc.
[14:36] <spobey> I just need to buy something i can keep running at home
[14:36] <spobey> as a server to RDP/VCN to
[14:36] <spobey> i was thinking a nettop
[14:36] <Caver> RDP = windows usually, so nothing arm based!
[14:36] <spobey> with which i could also share internet to other devices via wifi
[14:36] <spobey> Caver oh right
[14:36] <spobey> i guess that rules out raspi
[14:36] <Caver> yup
[14:36] <Caver> at least as a server
[14:36] <spobey> It's too bad VCN stinks.
[14:37] <Caver> you can (and I do) run linux as a rdp client
[14:37] <spobey> Well, I need it as a server :P
[14:39] <RaTTuS|BIG> http://beagleboard.org/ is probbaly the closest thing to a Rpi
[14:39] <spobey> What's the diff?
[14:39] <victhor> I thought the bone was closest.
[14:40] <Caver> I guess a much better question, is what is it your wanting to do?
[14:41] <Caver> otherwise we can dream up all sorts of stuff for you to shoot down

[14:46] <RaTTuS|BIG> bone does not have video out
[14:46] <victhor> there is, on the expansion connector. You need to wire a expansion board to it.
[14:47] <Thorn_> which is probably another ??120
[14:47] <victhor> even then it's digital RGB, so to get DVI you need a encoder.

[16:22] <Caver> kinda appropiate for someone with a "leet" nickname
[16:23] <kinda_le3t> ha
[16:24] <zgreg> the usa should switch to celsius already
[16:24] <zgreg> it's long overdue
[16:24] <RaTTuS|BIG> and metre's
[16:25] <kinda_le3t> fahrenheit made sense before computers
[16:25] <zgreg> how so?
[16:25] <kinda_le3t> the units are a little more spaced out nicely for temps we deal with regularly
[16:26] <kinda_le3t> also it's geared so that
[16:26] <zgreg> I don't think that matters, people have no problem grasping the concept of fractions
[16:26] <DaQatz> Personally I can feel the diff of 1 degree F. Since people "don't like to use the ." 1 degree C is much bigger.
[16:26] <kinda_le3t> sure
[16:27] <kinda_le3t> but measuring devices were analog back then
[16:27] <Caver> mostly a matter of what your used too I think
[16:27] <Caver> I think in degree's C and don't usually think in .1's
[16:29] <Caver> 16C is cool, anything below 10C and it's cold, over 20C is nice, over 25C is hot
[16:30] <zgreg> the exact temperature doesn't really matter that much anyway - the humidity influence a lot how you feel a certain temperature
[16:30] <kinda_le3t> zgreg: with that logic we don't need any units
[16:30] <kinda_le3t> if all that matters is qualitative impressions, then why measure anything
[16:31] <Caver> it's Britain so rains a lot, so you can assume certain levels of humidity :P
[16:31] <Caver> heat index is useful sometimes though
[16:31] <zgreg> kinda_le3t: just saying that the additional accuracy of fahrenheit is not that useful
[16:31] <kinda_le3t> *shrug*
[16:32] <kinda_le3t> i'll take either, to be honest
[16:32] <zgreg> don't twist my words, I never implied that measuring temperature is not useful at all
[16:33] <kinda_le3t> as weird as temperature is, the def for 1 amp is kinda crazy

[16:33] <IT_Sean> This has to be one of the nerdest arguments to ever occure in here
[16:34] <Caver> yep!
[16:34] <octeris> Caver: This is the issue for me. As an America I think and feel in Fahrenheit and feets/miles/inches.
[16:34] <octeris> Caver: I have no picture in my head of how far a kilometer "feels" like. Or how hot 20C is.
[16:35] <octeris> Caver: I know how hot 90F is and I know how cold 20F is, but I have no idea the translation to metric.
[16:35] <Caver> yup
[16:35] <IT_Sean> I dont know if you can blame that on being an american. I live in the us, and i still prefer meters to feet, etc... Just makes more sense.
[16:35] <zgreg> kinda_le3t: me too, but celsius is standard pretty much all over the world, why can't we standardize this completely? it's pretty sad.
[16:35] <octeris> IT_Sean: It's how I was raised. Should I blame my American parents? :P
[16:36] <Caver> well I measure big distances in miles, and temperature in Celsius ... so am very much a cross over generation
[16:36] <IT_Sean> I use an odd mix. I think of temperature on the F scale. Small distances in meters, amd large ditencesin miles.
[16:36] <zgreg> octeris: I don't think it's hard getting used to celsius, meters, etc.
[16:36] <Caver> of course the UK Gallon isn't the same as the American Gallon
[16:36] <kinda_le3t> hah
[16:36] <kinda_le3t> Caver: HAH!
[16:36] <Caver> so your gas millage continues to confuse us
[16:36] <octeris> zgreg: I suppose that may be true but when we're talking about ~300 million people getting used it, it's probably a bigger deal.
[16:36] <zgreg> but many people are opposed to such a change apparently
[16:37] <kinda_le3t> what's the deal with fluid ounces...
[16:37] <IT_Sean> O_o

[16:37] <zgreg> people are going to protest though :)
[16:37] <octeris> At least why I think people are resistant.
[16:37] <kinda_le3t> well even if it was law
[16:37] <IT_Sean> Bugger 'em
[16:37] <kinda_le3t> like why bother?
[16:38] <kinda_le3t> we can convert, and it's not going to change most people's lives

[16:38] <Caver> really?!

[16:40] <Caver> why would you have to fill anything in L:100Km ... thats millage, not amount of fuel filled up with/used!
[16:40] <octeris> kinda_le3t: Should we discuss raspberry pie?
[16:40] <kinda_le3t> measuring people's heights in meters always felt weird to me

[16:41] <Tobias|> kinda_le3t, around 450K
[16:41] <kinda_le3t> that's 810 Rankine!
[16:42] <zgreg> I think the easiest solution is to introduce a new unit, which uses the proper temperature for baking raspberry pie as the base

[16:42] <Tobias|> People will confuse that with the actual raspberry pie base though
[16:43] <azalyn> wouldn't it be 0 ?
[16:43] <azalyn> if it's the 'base'
[16:43] <kinda_le3t> yea
[16:43] <kinda_le3t> 0 is like pot roast temp, 1 is raspberry pi

[16:48] <azalyn> zgreg: i think these people are just really used to electronics breaking, because of all the shitty hardware vendors out there.
[16:48] * Tobias| throws a nokia at all of them
[16:49] <zgreg> even the "shitty" hardware of today with planned obsolescence in mind usually lasts many years, if you look at PCs/notebooks/netbooks
[16:49] <azalyn> especially ones that don't have adequate cooling. it's very common to see components desolder themselves from the heat.. (like in the xbox red ring of death issue)
[16:49] <xlq> "It will last longer if it is used, and longer still if it is never switched off." Why's that?
[16:50] <piofcube> power surcges I guess
[16:50] <zgreg> not sure I agree with the first, but the latter is quite obvious
[16:50] <azalyn> power cycling usually puts electronic (and mechanical in the case of mechanical parts) stress on hardware as i understand.
[16:50] <zgreg> if it's repeatedly turned on/off it'll also quickly cool up and down
[16:50] <piofcube> Car engines are the same... keep them warm and they last longer... so they say
[16:51] <zgreg> that stresses solder joints and the like
[16:51] <azalyn> oh, yeah, thermal expansion.
[16:51] <azalyn> forgot about that.
[16:51] <azalyn> apparently hard drives also suffer lots of mechanical stresses when they're spinning up.
[16:51] <zgreg> if you think about the electronics it's better to not switch it on
[16:51] <IT_Sean> I think people think thst due to the price, it is of lessquality than something more aspensive
[16:51] <azalyn> they're designed to keep running
[16:52] <DaQatz> You know, when I was little I never understood why people were unhappy when the groundhog said there would be six more weeks of winter. Mind you mostly it's because I'm in Maine, and six more weeks is a very early spring.
[16:52] <zgreg> any electronics slowly will suffer from electron migration in the end
[16:52] <IT_Sean> Electron migration is a bastard
[16:52] <azalyn> IT_Sean: perhaps. but yeah, it's just unfamiliarity with electronics in general. even so, most of their high cost electronics fail all the time, the xbox360 being a perfect example.. so they think a low cost unit like this must be worse.
[16:53] <azalyn> but that obviously is a flawed way to look at it.
[16:53] <IT_Sean> Indeed
[16:53] <piofcube> I remember a really old HDD that would heat up quite a bit... if the server was shut down, the discs would have stretched out so we ended up with two sets of cylinders (second set being created in-between this first after the drive refused to boot so we had to do a low-level format) LOL
[16:53] <Caver> oops
[16:53] <zgreg> azalyn: I've read a documentary about the xbox360. it's really crazy how haphazardly the console was designed and built, just to be first, quicker than sony
[16:53] <azalyn> most failures are either due to things like capacitor plague, or inadequate cooling which causes BGAs to desolder..
[16:54] <Caver> I can't imagine 1W of heat causing too much desoldering
[16:54] * IT_Sean has never had an rrod w/ his 360
[16:54] <azalyn> zgreg: the original xbox is probably even worse. after all, it was just an x86 pc in a case..
[16:54] * hamitron (~hamitron@just.screw-the.eu) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:55] <azalyn> Caver: yeah, exactly. it doesn't seem these people understand that heat is one of the big causes.
[16:55] <zgreg> azalyn: as far as I know the first xbox is quite reliable
[16:55] <zgreg> but it's a tank, it's huge, it's and noisy
[16:55] <piofcube> IT_Sean... three xboxes rroded here... but none were mine.. just my kids' so not so bad ;-)
[16:55] <IT_Sean> I never had aproblem with either my xbox, or xbox 360
[16:55] <azalyn> zgreg: i'm talking from an elegance perspective. and there were some issues with the original xbox too. power supply ones i believe.
[16:55] <IT_Sean> Heh
[16:55] * schigndix (~schigndix@95.130.165.190) has joined #raspberrypi

[16:56] <piofcube> Using my jasper as a paper weight now... works perfect, just don't use it
[16:56] <IT_Sean> Aye, there was a recall on the power cord for the org. Xbox
[16:56] <azalyn> it would catch fire, right?
[16:56] <azalyn> ;)
[16:56] * schigndix (~schigndix@95.130.165.190) Quit (Client Quit)
[16:57] <IT_Sean> Smething like that
[16:57] <IT_Sean> They replaced it wiht a gfi equipped lead.
[16:58] <azalyn> nintendo's systems are probably the only ones that are elegantly designed in terms of the internals. i remember reading about it. the gamecube motherboard layout had a lot of time put into it, to keep latency between GPU/CPU/Memory as low as possible, and to reduce costs.
[16:58] <azalyn> but then again, nintendo is a company that actually learns from their mistakes. they only had to screw up hardware one time, with the NES, to learn their lesson.
[16:59] <azalyn> and all future systems were built like tanks. (not in size, like the xbox.. but in resilience)
[16:59] <zgreg> actually in when it comes to elegance (and crazyness) in hardware design, I still conside the ps2 king
[17:00] <kinda_le3t> i heard the ps2 was kinda awkward to program for
[17:00] <azalyn> i remember reading how some people took some nintendo ds's to mount everest, and they worked perfectly fine.. even while their cb radios and rugged laptops broke down from the cold... so much for rugged. heh
[17:00] <zgreg> great, I'm unable type today for some reason
[17:00] <azalyn> it's especially bad in the case of the cb radios.. i mean come on.. that shit is supposed to work.
[17:00] <azalyn> PS2 was a mess.. it wasn't really elegant..
[17:00] <azalyn> PS2 slim i suppose was better.
[17:01] <piofcube> The disc lense tended to mess up on one revision on the PS2.
[17:01] <zgreg> azalyn: I mean the hardware architecture, not how it was put together on a PCB
[17:01] <zgreg> the GPU of the PS2 was a crazy design for its time
[17:01] <azalyn> they just used MIPS, no?
[17:02] <zgreg> no, not just MIPS
[17:02] <zgreg> MIPS with specialized DSPs directly integrated
[17:02] <zgreg> and the GPU as a brute-force monster with extreme fillrate and rasterizing power
[17:03] <Caver> hrm yes something about lots of cores and most people at the time were not used writing multi-core code
[17:03] <azalyn> too crazy. it was underpowered compared to the gamecube, even though the console launched a year earlier, and hard greater economies of scale, the gamecube still costed less to manufacture, and was more powerful than the PS2. and this status quo continued for years later. despite sony outselling nintendo by great amounts.
[17:03] <zgreg> the PS2's GPU uses embedded DRAM that is attached via an extremely wide bus, 2560 bits wide
[17:03] <zgreg> and for its time it offered extreme bandwidth, about 50 GB/s
[17:04] * IT_Sean (~IT@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: limeChat for iPad)
[17:05] <zgreg> azalyn: the gamecube appeared on the market roughly a year later than the PS2 - so naturally it was more powerful
[17:05] <azalyn> interesting hardware designs are useless if they aren't pragmatic. it's not a good thing for your console to have higher costs and less performance, even though you have way higher volume sales. it's just not even remotely sane.
[17:06] <azalyn> zgreg: i already addressed that though. it's not just the performance, it's the economies of scale thing.
[17:06] <zgreg> azalyn: right, but the PS2 certainly is elegant in the way that the hardware design is so minimalistic, yet powerful
[17:06] <zgreg> it definitely is hard to use that power, but later PS2 titles show nicely what the hardware is capable of
[17:07] <azalyn> minimalism isn't important if it costs you more money to get the product out the door than your competitors who should have lower economies of scale.
[17:07] <zgreg> azalyn: that's not my point
[17:07] <azalyn> in fact... minimalism is supposed to make it easier for you to manufacture.
[17:07] <zgreg> I don't care about economies of scale
[17:08] <azalyn> zgreg: well, i'm just talking from a pragmatic perspective.
[17:08] <zgreg> yes, and I'm not, far from it :)
[17:08] <azalyn> i consider elegance from all angles.
[17:09] <azalyn> zgreg: well, like i said, it seems to me that minimalism is supposed to make it easier to manufacture easily. i see it as a huge failure if your design ends up being more expensive.
[17:09] <azalyn> something is clearly wrong there.
[17:09] <kinda_le3t> software is so weird now. web design is just slapping together a few javascript libraries
[17:09] <kinda_le3t> it's like over-streamlined and feels very unpersonal
[17:09] <kinda_le3t> i can't even look at websites with light/shadow boxes
[17:10] <azalyn> anyways, i'm more fascinated by the previous gen consoles. like saturn, ps1, n64. it's hard to believe the things developers could do with such limited hardware.
[17:10] <kinda_le3t> azalyn: ever look at the demoscene from the 90's?
[17:10] <zgreg> azalyn: if you go back to that generation interestingly the ps1 has the most straight-forward design
[17:10] <kinda_le3t> it's fucking cool... in a cheesey hackers kinda way
[17:10] <azalyn> kinda_le3t: i'm familiar with it. yes i know how insane some of that stuff is. hehe
[17:10] <azalyn> there's a game called .kkreiger or something..
[17:11] <kinda_le3t> hah... raspberrypi demoscene?
[17:11] <kinda_le3t> starts now?
[17:11] <Caver> now that could be interesting
[17:11] <kinda_le3t> i mean
[17:11] <azalyn> it's a game with like quake3 sorts of graphics, although not as good model design and such... but get this..
[17:11] <kinda_le3t> we could even do art installations on the street
[17:11] <Caver> as it's got quite reasonible GPU power - arguments about open drivers aside
[17:11] <zgreg> I don't know, from what I've seen not many people from the scene are interested in the rpi
[17:11] <azalyn> the game is smaller than a large-ish screenshot of the game.
[17:12] <kinda_le3t> hah
[17:12] <kinda_le3t> azalyn: that's sick
[17:12] <azalyn> 96k in size.
[17:12] <azalyn> so even a jpeg of the game in action could be bigger.
[17:12] <azalyn> than the game itself
[17:12] <kinda_le3t> i've been looking at generative art
[17:13] <Caver> like fractal type stuff?
[17:13] <kinda_le3t> yea
[17:13] <kinda_le3t> but more general
[17:13] <azalyn> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvro22UeeKk
[17:13] <azalyn> check it out.
[17:14] <kinda_le3t> fractals are like the big example
[17:14] <zgreg> "That would give it the same GPU power as the PS Vita. And the CPU power of an iPhone 1. If it's true, they made the most unbalanced SOC ever :D"
[17:14] <azalyn> look at the graphics
[17:14] <zgreg> that's so true. :)
[17:14] <azalyn> skip to like 1 minute in

[19:05] <theadmin> zgreg: Well, if it's got something to do with package management (I take it they will have a package manager) it's easiest to just chroot (actually I don't know the other ways)
[19:05] <zgreg> from what I know, it will be installed, just not start by default
[19:05] <theadmin> zgreg: Ah, that's good then
[19:06] <zgreg> however, actually you can chroot into an ARM file system with qemu
[19:06] <theadmin> Ooh.
[19:06] <theadmin> I'm not familiar with qemu but I guess

[19:10] <Edek> HOLYCRAP
[19:10] <Edek> that's Alot
[19:10] <zgreg> if that's any indication of the interest, they'll sell out quickly

[19:11] <rm> in fact, as much as they will dare to produce
[19:11] <rm> all will be sold quickly

[19:20] <ShiftPlusOne> ah.... still on about sighlight, ey?
[19:20] <zgreg> haltdef: yeah, there's lots of people with complete misconceptions about ARM cpu performance
[19:21] <Edek> i love the pi
[19:21] <haltdef> he thought he saw quake 3 running at 300fps, figured all other games that run on linux would be fine
[19:21] <zgreg> just yesterday, someone wanted to convince me that ARM obviously performs much better clock-by-clock compared to x86 because it's a much better architecture
[19:21] <Edek> but the laptop is already faster
[19:21] <Edek> and has higher specs
[19:22] <haltdef> I do wonder how ARM would compete if they did aim at outperforming an i7
[19:23] <zgreg> haltdef: probably not any good
[19:24] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, probably not possible with RISC
[19:24] <Edek> you would need a 7 GHz arm for a 3 Ghz P4
[19:24] <zgreg> just found sightlights' "PSU design". awesome stuff!
[19:24] <haltdef> well now I'm no longer wondering
[19:24] <haltdef> I hate you guys :(
[19:24] <Edek> ARM is light weight and stuff
[19:24] <DaQatz> Edek, unlikely. htz to htz Arm does better.
[19:25] <Edek> really?
[19:25] <DaQatz> But there are things arm is simply not as good at.
[19:25] <DaQatz> Yes
[19:25] <zgreg> DaQatz: err, no. that's my point
[19:25] <zgreg> ARM IPC is quite miserable
[19:25] <zgreg> that goes for the lowly ARM11, but even for the cortex-A9
[19:26] <zgreg> cortex-a9 is about as fast as an intel atom, clock by clock

[19:30] <zgreg> anyway, the basic "problem" is the modern "RISC" architectures like ARM introduce many CISCy features, and in the same way, CISC processors are internally mostly RISC

[19:35] <zgreg> some of ARMs propaganda? :)
[19:35] <Thorn_> they should rename x86 to CORE
[19:35] <zgreg> yeah, I know some of the "comparisons" ARM has done, which are essentially useless

[19:52] <Caver> agreed
[19:52] <Thorn_> probably about as slow as the average cheap (??150) NAS in my experience
[19:52] <Thorn_> they're pretty much 2 drives sharing an internal usb bus off a soc :<
[19:53] <Edek> but the rpi itself could bottleneck it
[19:55] <OneFix_Work> Yea, that's one thing I recognized with the Model B, it's using an internal USB hub to get 2 USB ports on there
[19:55] <Edek> my readynas duo ???140 does 12 Mb per second
[19:55] <Edek> that not that slow at all
[19:55] <Caver> sure but I bet it's not doing sata over usb

[20:17] <ShiftPlusOne> zgreg, I am still trying to understand why you said that RISC does not imply a smaller die size. I am looking at transistor counts and it seems like ARM transistor counts are in the region of where x86 CPUs were over 10 years ago. At the same time Atom has twice as much as a cortex a9. Obviously these are rough comparisons, but surely RISC proccessors are way cheaper to make than CISC. Am I missing something?

[20:54] <hamitron> if there is a chance Iran can do it.... maybe we can? :D
[20:54] * krake (~krake@pC19F7E14.dip.t-dialin.net) Quit (Quit: Bye.)
[20:55] <SpeedEvil> Low earth orbit still requires an orbit.
[20:55] <SpeedEvil> Which requires orbital velocity
[20:55] <SpeedEvil> Which balloons - lifted by bouyancy - can never have.
[20:55] <Henchman21> whatever high altitude
[20:55] <ShiftPlusOne> "The sideways speed needed to achieve a stable low earth orbit is about 7.8 km/s" wikipedia
[20:55] <hamitron> we want rockets anyway :/
[20:55] <duckinator> give the astronaut beans before launch?
[20:55] * Faperdaper (~Faperdape@dhcp-077-250-027-109.chello.nl) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:56] <SpeedEvil> Rockets are alas non-trivial, and often legally really annoying.
[20:56] <SpeedEvil> For example, in the UK, it costs 6K, just to apply for a space launch permit.
[20:56] <Henchman21> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDs2T2PgxNM
[20:56] <hamitron> maybe launch from sea?
[20:56] <SpeedEvil> And there absolutely will be costs for the required studies and insurance that will dwarf this.
[20:56] <SpeedEvil> hamitron: Doesn't work.
[20:57] <SpeedEvil> If you are in control of the launch anywhere in the world, as a UK citezen, you need a launch permit.
[20:57] <SpeedEvil> 'Outer Space Act'
[20:57] <SpeedEvil> I forget the year
[20:57] <SpeedEvil> And I can't spell citezen.
[20:57] <ShiftPlusOne> Henchman21, you're just talking about altitude then, not actually going around Earth?
[20:57] <chris_99> can you temporarilly denounce your citizenship i wonder
[20:58] <SpeedEvil> High altitude balloons are on topic in #highaltitude
[20:58] <hamitron> fail to see how they can really do much, if you are at sea
[20:58] <SpeedEvil> chris_99: I don't think so.
[20:58] <chris_99> heh, pity
[20:58] <SpeedEvil> hamitron: It's the same as the sex tourism laws.
[20:58] <SpeedEvil> They in principle prosecute you when you get back.
[20:58] <ShiftPlusOne> You need a space launch permit for sex tourism? =/
[20:59] <hamitron> so we just need our own country
[20:59] <hamitron> ?
[20:59] <SpeedEvil> In #highaltitude, we're launching ballons every couple of weeks or so.
[20:59] <SpeedEvil> These go to 30-40km altitude, and can in some cases (admittedly accidentally) cross the atlantic
[20:59] <SpeedEvil> One launched from california, and hit the med.
[21:00] <Henchman21> just need one of those earther balloons, an insulated box for your electronics,a parachute,and a permit or say F it and launch it without ;)
[21:00] <SpeedEvil> Using ~10mW of radio, on 433MHz, with a good reciever can get you well over 500km range.
[21:00] <SpeedEvil> (50bps downlink only though)
[21:00] <SpeedEvil> You need CAA approval for your launch site.
[21:00] <hamitron> <SpeedEvil> If you are in control of the launch anywhere in the world, as a UK citezen, you need a launch permit. <--- what about out of control? ;/
[21:01] <SpeedEvil> And you can't use any other than licence exempt radios, as amateur licences are not applicable for airborne use.
[21:01] <SpeedEvil> In control of the launch = press the button.
[21:01] <Henchman21> APRS
[21:01] <SpeedEvil> APRS is illegal.
[21:01] <SpeedEvil> Airborne.
[21:01] <hamitron> bah, laws are there to be broken :/
[21:01] <SpeedEvil> Or rather - in violation of your UK ham licence.
[21:01] * ShiftPlusOne (~Shift@124-148-155-110.dyn.iinet.net.au) Quit (Quit: 'night)
[21:01] <SpeedEvil> Or rather - not covered.
[21:02] <Henchman21> ok queen
[21:02] <jolo2> here in France there seems to be a frequency dedicated to school and things like that
[21:02] <SpeedEvil> I've been investigating how to do small scale rocketry legally.
[21:02] <SpeedEvil> It's annoying.
[21:03] <SpeedEvil> jolo2: Verify it's actually legal to use airborne.
[21:03] <chris_99> what type of engine SpeedEvil?
[21:03] * LiENUX (~yes@2001:470:bbb3:12:6d27:34a2:18e7:12ee) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:03] <SpeedEvil> chris_99: either kerosene/H2O2 or alcohol/LOX
[21:03] <SpeedEvil> there are arguments both ways.
[21:03] <SpeedEvil> four stages.
[21:04] <chris_99> neat, that'd be really impressive
[21:04] <SpeedEvil> More stages let you _dramatically_ reduce the mass fraction.
[21:04] <jolo2> SpeedEvil, it is as the "CNES" gives us some radio transmitter to use in balloons

[21:05] <SpeedEvil> I was aiming at ~1 ton launch weight for a kilo in orbit
[21:05] <mrdragons> Kerosene/H202 would be a good bit cheaper wouldn't it?
[21:05] <jolo2> http://www.planete-sciences.org/espace/publications/techniques/KIWI_Comprehensive_Datasheet.pdf
[21:05] <SpeedEvil> mrdragons: no
[21:05] <jolo2> "KIWI Telemetry System has been designed by CNES (French Space Agency), Plan?te Sciences (Space Division) and Tenum in order to allow young amateurs to perform onboard radio data transmission for both rocket and weather balloons projects."

[21:06] <SpeedEvil> mrdragons: It's unfortunately complex. H2O2 is essentially unavaliable (now) in high concentrations.
[21:06] <jolo2> and my class and teachers will launch one next week xD
[21:06] <SpeedEvil> Concentrating it is non-trivial.
[21:06] <mrdragons> Oh.
[21:06] <SpeedEvil> jolo2: Join #highaltitude
[21:06] <Henchman21> theres an amateur radio balloon that was released recently using APRS
[21:06] <jolo2> already did
[21:06] <SpeedEvil> ah
[21:06] <chris_99> can you distil hydrogen-peroxide or does that not work
[21:06] <SpeedEvil> chris_99: You can - but it's fun.
[21:07] <feep> Fun?
[21:07] <SpeedEvil> It needs to be vacuum distilled, and the vapours are explosive.
[21:07] <chris_99> haha
[21:07] <SpeedEvil> And the H2O2 is explosive if you do it wrong
