[0:00] <StickUrPony> they sorted it out so that we get more pi
[0:00] <nuil> i think every customer should get a case as apology
[0:00] <nuil> form rs ans farnell

[0:00] <SpEcTo> well, hi demand for RS/Farnell is relative... They process HUGE orders, they failed to realize how many individuals would be going for this
[0:00] <piofcube> StickUrPony: yep... I hope it's a lesson learned by R-Pi and distributors
[0:00] <GabrialDestruir> I mean... just look at what RS did.... they were suppose to be selling them.
[0:00] <Androo> piofcube: then that should of been the foundation's first sign that this wasn't going to work well. Not angry about it, it's just stupid ... they had people warning them for months.
[0:00] <StickUrPony> I have the perfect apology lined up for anyoen that wants one?
[0:00] <zgreg> you probably can't blame the foundation for all the troubles, but they're not free of blame at all :p
[0:00] <GabrialDestruir> Instead they forced everyone to a "pre-order" site thing.
[0:01] <mdavey> nuil: I think every whiner should be moved to the back of the queue ;)
[0:01] <mkopack> It is what it is, and no point getting annoyed any further??? Nothing the Foundation can do about it now??? It was just a lot of mis-communication and poorly executed situation??? We'll get over it and move on.
[0:01] <nuil> mdavey: :D
[0:01] <Lycanthropist> they probably have a policy of not selling things that don't exist
[0:01] <SpEcTo> if this were a company I invested in, or paid a lot of money to, I'd be upset
[0:01] <StickUrPony> raspberry pi foundation apology video, sorry eben looks a bit rough, he's been up all night:
[0:01] <StickUrPony> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSHaCzb3yYk
[0:01] <SpEcTo> this project is to get a cheap pc for students to learn
[0:01] <nuil> in 6 Months everybody will laugh about this situation
[0:01] <SpEcTo> The fact it has blown out of proportion is the media fest rpi has enjoyed
[0:02] <piofcube> For a charity that can get you into deep trouble if you can't be 100% you will get it out in time/etc
[0:02] <SkoZombie> StickUrPony: lol
[0:02] <StickUrPony> is that apology satisfactory?
[0:02] <rely> StickUrPony: Very
[0:02] <GabrialDestruir> NO!
[0:02] <mdavey> GabrialDestruir: They did no such thing. Its up to individuals whether they pre-order or not. And given the huge numbers of people last week that were *insisting* that the Foundation should be taking pre-orders...
[0:02] <rely> StickUrPony: At least i liked it
[0:02] <Henchman21> PWNY
[0:02] <GabrialDestruir> I demand satisfaction! -slaps with white glove-
[0:02] <SpEcTo> that's what is funny about this situation
[0:02] <StickUrPony> GabrialDestruir, for you
[0:02] <StickUrPony> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzgT-fg01vY&feature=related
[0:03] <piofcube> For one thing... If they didn't get the R-Pis out but spent the money doing it and a large percentage of people make chargeback/paypal claims... bye bye R-Pi

[0:03] <SpEcTo> people who won't know what to do with the boards are excited
[0:03] <GabrialDestruir> People wanted pre-orders BEFORE the thing was suppose to go on sale
[0:03] <StickUrPony> so they could jump a queue
[0:03] <SpEcTo> and people are becoming upset they're not receiving and item barely anyone is making money on right away
[0:03] <SpEcTo> makes no sense
[0:03] <GabrialDestruir> Indeed.
[0:03] <Androo> Really though, even if they had planned this well, it would have been hard to create anything that could handle that sort of traffic on such a shoestring budget.
[0:04] <GabrialDestruir> But when you've got one site taking "pre-orders" and another site actually selling or something....
[0:04] <mkopack> True
[0:04] <GabrialDestruir> There's something MAJORLY wrong there.
[0:04] * TheDeadCPU (~TheDeadCP@87-98-164-112.kimsufi.com) has left #raspberrypi
[0:04] <nuil> I think tomorrow we get some answers vom rpi
[0:04] <Androo> GabrialDestruir: It sounds like they didn't have much attention from either of their distributors.
[0:04] <nuil> *from
[0:04] <mkopack> I'm wondering if I'm going to get the snub from RS since I'm outside the UK??? I DID manage to register interest at like 0601??? right before the server tanked the first time
[0:05] <Androo> GabrialDestruir: Today's events may change that.
[0:05] <SpEcTo> I want to hear from the sysadmins that were trying to keep their network/systems up
[0:05] <piofcube> I'm a bit.. well upset is too strong a word.. that I didn't get to order one of those fabled first batch Pis... but I'm concerned for the foundation... I know this will all even out at some point though so not that concerned
[0:05] <Henchman21> i wish everyone would stfu and accept wtf happened 'echo crying > /dev/null'
[0:05] <GabrialDestruir> I think I registered for interest like 2 or 3 times .-.
[0:05] <StickUrPony> Henchman21 +1
[0:05] <mdavey> GabrialDestruir: the site that was selling is the one that's taking preorders. The other site has an interest list. Again, its probably beyond the muscle of the Foundation to demand of the distributors how they run their business to such detail.
[0:05] <GabrialDestruir> if they email me back I'm gonna tell them to shove it .-.
[0:05] <Henchman21> im sorry i meant to say "everypony"
[0:06] * saua (~saua@193.81-167-3.customer.lyse.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:06] <GabrialDestruir> According to RS the "interest list" is a "pre-order" list.
[0:06] * kism3t (~kism3t@client-86-25-193-211.bsh-bng-013.adsl.virginmedia.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:06] <SpEcTo> most people bought this for a media center I think.. which is stupid... no cases, no easy to use xbmc yet. It's ridiculous! :D
[0:06] <Henchman21> i cant wait to grep through my irc logs from this morning
[0:06] <StickUrPony> does anyone know how many ponies farnell actually had today?
[0:06] <GabrialDestruir> Where as with Farnell you could actually register put it in cart, fill out your CC info, etc.
[0:06] <pingec> why would you need a case
[0:07] <Henchman21> was scrolling by so fast i couldnt read it
[0:07] <nuil> Henchman21: upload it to pastebin, everybody needs to laugh
[0:07] <nuil> *wants
[0:07] <piofcube> call it a booze-up list if they want... they can not bind you to buying one... they don't have any payment details and you didn't sign anything (even electronically) that committed yourself to buy
[0:07] <zgreg> SpEcTo: it's especially stupid because there are severe restrictions for media center usage
[0:07] <TheShrew> nuil: think both are applicable :P
[0:07] <zgreg> SpEcTo: no MPEG-2, VC-1, etc.
[0:07] <SpEcTo> very true
[0:07] <nuil> TheShrew: yeah
[0:08] <Androo> I'd like to know how the foundation is planning on ensuring that people aren't orering 1 from Farnell and 1 from RS. There's pretty much no way of ensuring 1 per customer when you're taking orders at two separate distributors.
[0:08] <mod_eerf> i'd sooner ssh and use mplayer for performance IF i were going to use it as media center
[0:08] <mekas> Good question Androo
[0:08] <SpEcTo> besids, I bought an asus o!play for $65 and it plays everything... sure it's not xbmc, but it works well
[0:08] <xlq> We could really do with GPUs that are (at least) as open as CPUs.
[0:08] <mekas> Hard enough to prevent people from gaming the system with a single source
[0:08] <GabrialDestruir> piofcube, they were telling people that that the 'Interest list' would be converted to pre-orders once they were done manufacturing their Pis
[0:09] <zgreg> SpEcTo: I'm already waiting for people complaining on the forums that XBMC won't run / is hard to install / buggy
[0:09] <SpEcTo> it'll be interesting to see failure rates between the manufacturers
[0:09] <SpEcTo> zgreg: it will happen
[0:09] <GabrialDestruir> That they have to make them because they have no stock
[0:09] <piofcube> GabrialDestruir: In the email they sent when you completed the form, they said they would send you instructions on how to buy it when it''s available... or words very similar to it
[0:09] <nuil> SpEcTo: maybe, they will produce them together
[0:09] <mekas> The question is will RS br doing first on the interest list first served or will the interest list only be an announcement of an it's available if you want to order
[0:09] <StickUrPony> imagine yourself, the customer as father jack, mrs.crilly is the foundation and the rpi is the cup:
[0:09] <StickUrPony> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNY376o2XMY&feature=related
[0:10] <nuil> SpEcTo: less production cost
[0:10] <mdavey> nuil: Maybe they'll use R.Pi's manufacturing partners - at least at first.
[0:10] <GabrialDestruir> I never received an email
[0:10] <GabrialDestruir> lmao
[0:10] <StickUrPony> I se quite a few father jacks in here
[0:10] <zgreg> SpEcTo: if that happens, I can already say that I'll be majorly pissed. it's not that those people should not have their pi, not at all, but now is not the right time for those people that want an idiot-proof appliance
[0:10] <mod_eerf> xbmc is way too taxing to be viable..its a great concept but requires too much of hardware
[0:10] <GabrialDestruir> Apparently.... UK companies have issues sending emails when they say they will

[0:11] * PiBot sets mode +v victhor
[0:11] <SpEcTo> zgreg: it's hard since rpi showed off the airplay stuff and then released the announcement about the xbmc port
[0:11] <nuil> GabrialDestruir: hey, the emails must check customs
[0:11] <mkopack> Yeah, I never got anything form the RPI mailing list, and haven't gotten anything from RS either
[0:11] <zgreg> SpEcTo: yeah, strategically that was bad, maybe
[0:11] <GabrialDestruir> Guess I don't pass the custom checks then? xD
[0:11] <Androo> Yeah, if you're not a hardware or software hacker, the RPi isn't really for you yet.
[0:12] <ingrowntesticle> if i can set up a web browser with keyboard and mouse on a tv and tinker with it i am happy with what i order or preorder or whatever i did
[0:12] <GabrialDestruir> I'm neither a hardware or software hacker, but it'll be fun anyways

[0:13] <zgreg> lianj: there is a single i2c bus
[0:13] <GabrialDestruir> Why wouldn't it be good for web browsing? o.O
[0:13] <piofcube> flash I guess LOL
[0:13] <haltdef> no X11 acceleration
[0:13] <zgreg> lianj: plus you can use GPIO ports to bitbang yourself I2C
[0:13] <SpEcTo> 700mhz
[0:13] <lianj> zgreg: nice
[0:13] <GabrialDestruir> I'd guess flash too xD
[0:13] <peteyg> not *yet*, but soon, hopefully.
[0:13] <zgreg> yes, no X11 acceleration, plus very slow CPU
[0:14] <piofcube> oh and what haltdef said.. I forgot about that
[0:14] <zgreg> websites will take AGES to load
[0:14] * mkopack (~mkopack@ Quit (Quit: mkopack)
[0:14] <SpEcTo> not if you use elinks or another text based browser :D
[0:14] <ingrowntesticle> flashblocker will be in order
[0:14] <peteyg> lynx!
[0:14] <piofcube> You could change your browser headers so you go to the mobile site if you were so inclined LOL
[0:14] <Henchman21> my #raspberrypi is 5MB of text
[0:14] <Henchman21> log*
[0:15] <SpEcTo> are these shipping with a power supply? I thought they weren't
[0:15] * wej (~j@m2.mullvad.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:15] <Androo> SpEcTo: nope
[0:15] <piofcube> no... but looks like farnell will be selling packs

[0:15] <hp1337> MAY 10TH!!!
[0:15] <hp1337> thats when newark ships mine
[0:15] * peteyg (~pyg@cs-nx-02.csil.sfu.ca) Quit (Client Quit)
[0:16] <mod_eerf> midori and disable flash....shoot I'd be in the shell with the pi.. I use terminator and can split screen and launch media content with mplayer, etc..
[0:16] <Hexxeh> no X11 accel, what.
[0:16] <Androo> hp1337: the question is ... who knows if that's an accurate date?
[0:16] <zgreg> the CPU in the raspberry pi is about 1/6 of the speed of a typical intel atom (ballpark number)
[0:16] <OneFix_Work> hp1337: Same here...it's possible it might ship earlier, but they don't want to promise earlier yet
[0:16] <hp1337> Androo: ya you're probably right. my bet is on sooner rather than later though
[0:16] <zgreg> Hexxeh: you must be new around here
[0:16] <hp1337> OneFix_Work: i agree
[0:16] <Hexxeh> zgreg: pretty much
[0:16] <piofcube> I remember when I saw my first 486DX and thought "WOW"
[0:16] * imnichol (~ian@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:16] * PiBot sets mode +v imnichol
[0:17] <OneFix_Work> Hexxeh: There are still a lot of drivers and libraries that haven't been built for it yet...
[0:17] <hp1337> i'm going to try and buy another one through the RS Components chain
[0:17] <hp1337> whenever they open up for orders
[0:17] <Hexxeh> Are you saying no X11 accel in the VM (obvious), or that there's no X11 accel on a real device?
[0:17] <zgreg> Hexxeh: no X11 accel on the real device
[0:17] <Hexxeh> seriously..?
[0:17] <zgreg> yes
[0:17] <Karmaon> Anyone's raspberry pi going to take a month to arrive?
[0:17] <Androo> hp1337: hope so. My date is April 16th, but I know people with later order numbers who's date is *earlier*, so I don't really know where that date is coming from.
[0:17] * EiNSTeiN_ (~einstein@unaffiliated/einstein/x-615171) Quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
[0:17] <OneFix_Work> Hexxeh: There is currently no X11 accel on the device
[0:18] <lianj> zgreg: but opengl drivers?
[0:18] <Hexxeh> Wow... :/
[0:18] * hamitron (~hamitron@just.screw-the.eu) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:18] * PiBot sets mode +v hamitron
[0:18] <zgreg> opengl es works, yeah
[0:18] <GabrialDestruir> So... lets get this straight.... it can play Quake 3 just fine, but it can't surf the web with any sort of decency?
[0:18] <zgreg> but that's completely different
[0:18] <hamitron> is it sold out yet?
[0:18] <zgreg> GabrialDestruir: yeah
[0:18] <Henchman21> 72855 lines
[0:18] <lianj> at least thats kinda nice
[0:18] <Hexxeh> hmm
[0:18] <zgreg> GabrialDestruir: messed up priorities I'd say
[0:18] <Hexxeh> why is that the case? what's missing?
[0:19] <GabrialDestruir> Androo, I'm wondering if for some reason, they're prioritizing their customers by region...
[0:19] <GabrialDestruir> like UK first
[0:19] <zgreg> but a Q3 port is probably a lot easier than an X11 driver.
[0:19] <GabrialDestruir> then the rest of the world
[0:19] * JMichaelX_work is now known as jmichael_away
[0:19] <Hexxeh> zgreg: so it's the x11 driver that's missing?

[0:20] * PiBot sets mode +v wej
[0:20] <Henchman21> i think ill save u for a beagleboard
[0:20] <GabrialDestruir> I'm sure as 10k Pi's get into the wild, someone somewhere might get X11 drivers going
[0:20] <zgreg> I was going to try implementing a simple EXA-accelerated driver
[0:20] <zgreg> but now that I don't have a pi anytime soon...
[0:20] <SpEcTo> wasn't broadcom going to help wi that?
[0:20] <SpEcTo> with*
[0:21] <zgreg> GabrialDestruir: problem is, if most it's true that the XBMC crowd snatched up most of them, that's less likely
[0:21] <zgreg> s/most//1

[0:21] <JonSeals> Holy crap these guys have them for only $10 more. http://bit.ly/mwzB1t
[0:21] <zgreg> SpEcTo: no, the foundation specifically said that they cound on the "community" for that
[0:21] <GabrialDestruir> I'm sure there's plenty of people who want to use it for like XBMC, but still have plenty of software skills
[0:21] <DeviceZer0> So this has prob been asked a millino times today...but whens the next batch gonna be avail? I tried to snag one this morning but wasnt able to
[0:21] <hamitron> serves the newbs right if they all snatched them, not leaving enough for the geeks ;)
[0:21] <Androo> GabrialDestruir: I would think prioritization is probably the most likely scenario.
[0:22] * StickUrPony is now known as anyoneseenmyPony
[0:22] <SpEcTo> i'd wager most of them will get put into a drawer
[0:22] <GabrialDestruir> The question is how are the prioritizing
[0:22] * JonSeals (~Jon@99-158-225-217.lightspeed.livnmi.sbcglobal.net) has left #raspberrypi
[0:22] <mekas> DeviceZero people seem to be getting early May dates
[0:22] <DeviceZer0> mekas, damn! was hoping sooner then that hehe.
[0:22] <ksx4system> is there any schematics of Raspberry Pi to download? I need exact (perfectly exact) dimensions of the board and length of free spaces between ports.
[0:22] <zgreg> SpEcTo: nah, they'll end up on ebay for double the price
[0:23] <SpEcTo> T_T
[0:23] <mekas> DeviceZero I don't think even the distributors really know for sure.
[0:23] <anyoneseenmyPony> ksx4system, no
[0:23] <DeviceZer0> ah.
[0:23] <Byan> still 390 in here
[0:23] <Byan> i wonder if itll sustain

[0:23] <TheShrew> ksx4system those dimensions were available on the forum I thought - not sure if they are on the wiki though
[0:24] <ksx4system> anyoneseenmyPony: erm... ok. so there are no precise dimensions too, right?
[0:24] <ksx4system> TheShrew: wiki.raspberrypi.org or...?
[0:24] <Byan> google for elinux wiki rpi
[0:24] <TheShrew> ksx4system this wiki is at http://elinux.org/RaspberryPiBoard
[0:24] <ksx4system> thnx
[0:25] <Hexxeh> zgreg: so i don't fully understand how the graphics stack works, but does the absence of ddx mean that opengl es won't work inside of an X11 window either?
[0:26] <Androo> ksx4system: the dimensions of the board are precise AFAIK ... 85.6 x 53.98 x 17 mm
[0:26] <Hexxeh> zgreg: looking to build Chromium OS, which does have ARM/GLES targets, but if it's going to run like molasses because of a missing driver it's probably not worth the effort
[0:26] <Byan> we have no drivers Hexxeh . how would any of it work..
[0:26] <zgreg> Hexxeh: yes, opengl es does not integrate with X11
[0:26] <Hexxeh> Byan: they did show quake3 running, so surely we have /something/

[0:27] <Byan> Hexxeh: thats true... hrm..
[0:27] <GabrialDestruir> Like I said.
[0:27] <Androo> ChromeOS uses Xorg 1.7
[0:27] <GabrialDestruir> Give it time, X11 drivers will be there.
[0:27] <Byan> idk, thats a good question Hexxeh
[0:27] <acfrazier> so
[0:27] <Hexxeh> Androo: no it doesn't
[0:28] <acfrazier> I got my order conf finally
[0:28] <Byan> GabrialDestruir: only way we get them is if we write them
[0:28] <acfrazier> Your tax and shipping charges are currently not available. These charges will appear on your invoice if applicable
[0:28] <acfrazier> >chargine me tax on an imported product
[0:28] <acfrazier> kidding me riht
[0:28] <Hexxeh> Androo: it uses whatever version you want
[0:28] <lianj> Hexxeh: maybe not this version but it uses xorg with a window manager written in c++
[0:28] <acfrazier> charging*
[0:28] <acfrazier> right*
[0:28] <GabrialDestruir> You don't think some geek or hacker will either write or get some other drivers working?
[0:28] <piofcube> An informative piece of non-information
[0:28] <Hexxeh> lianj: chromium os you mean?
[0:28] <lianj> yes
[0:28] <acfrazier> Hexxeh is the chrome os god
[0:28] <Hexxeh> lianj: well yes, either chromeos-wm or aura

[0:29] <Hexxeh> but it's still atop xorg yeah
[0:29] <zgreg> GabrialDestruir: a simple accelerated X driver (that is capable of blits and fills) should be easy to do
[0:29] <zgreg> that is, if we get the docs for the DMA blit engine

[0:31] <GabrialDestruir> There will be plenty of pressure for the right people to either release the docs, or for them set about making the driver available.
[0:31] <SpeedEvil> piofcube: we also need schematics
[0:31] <SpeedEvil> piofcube: Or you sacrifice a PI, rip the chips off, eand measure the PCB

[0:32] <GabrialDestruir> I don't think a single soul is going to have a Pi already.
[0:32] <Hexxeh> i can't believe they're selling it without an x11 driver...

[0:39] <hamitron> let you guys have all the fun
[0:39] <zgreg> Hexxeh: there's lots of work to do on the software side, to get the hardware properly supported. I think the foundation should have it made more clear that currently the raspi is mostly interesting for developers
[0:39] <ingrowntesticle> like if foxconn is making these the priority would be very low
[0:39] <Hexxeh> zgreg: Yeah, I suspect a lot of folks will buy it expecting "basics" like browsing the web to work
[0:39] <zgreg> Hexxeh: but no, they chose to make those Q3 and XBMC demos that started the hype...
[0:39] <piofcube> I'm still trying to work out how I am going to explain all this to our Trustees... LOL
[0:39] <Hexxeh> zgreg: Exactly yeah
[0:40] <mekas> Explanation: You screwed up.
[0:40] <Hexxeh> zgreg: It's an easy assumption to make if they're demoing fancy demos like that, that basics like X11 would be working
[0:40] <zgreg> Hexxeh: yes
[0:40] <piofcube> Not me... us... wrong organisation... thankfully LOL
[0:40] <Hexxeh> so what are the fedora/debian images actually using?
[0:40] <hamitron> probably get people suing them for not providing a product fit for purpose
[0:40] <hamitron> ;)
[0:40] <zgreg> plus, countless people have totally warped expectations of how the raspi performs
[0:40] <zgreg> they think it's pretty powerful overall since it can decode 1080p
[0:41] <OneFix_Work> piofcube: Actually, he would get it later than the rest of us. Since presumably, the product would have to be shipped to the ebayer first
[0:41] <mekas> I think you're right zgreg.
[0:41] <GabrialDestruir> Has the fedora image even released yet?
[0:41] <zgreg> they do not understand that the CPU is very weak
[0:41] <mekas> A lot of hype about it being the perfect media center device
[0:41] <Hexxeh> i'm sorry, but, it's the same price as an arduino, and infinitely faster, it's already a bargain
[0:41] <piofcube> Onefix_Work: You have a good point there
[0:41] <zgreg> and that the CPU is still the most important part for many applications
[0:41] <Hexxeh> zgreg: are there any comparison benchmarks anywhere?
[0:42] <GabrialDestruir> 700Mhz still isn't bad.

[0:42] <mekas> The Ardunuio is for people that like to play with hardware.
[0:42] <OneFix_Work> Hexxeh: Not only that, but programming on the rPi is going to be so much easier than on the Arduino
[0:42] <zgreg> Hexxeh: the raspi is a very crappy arduino replacement
[0:42] <mekas> This is for people that like to playt with software.

[0:42] <piofcube> Not being funny but does Ardhuino have any set goals?
[0:43] <OneFix_Work> Hexxeh: Actually, the rPi + the GertBoard will have so many more possibilities
[0:43] <mekas> Yes to make it easir for people to play with microcontroller ahrdware
[0:43] <zgreg> Hexxeh: as I said above, about 1/6-1/8 of the speed of a typical intel atom @ 1.6 GHz
[0:43] <zgreg> or in other words, about 1/3 of the speed of an intel atom at the same clock
[0:43] <OneFix_Work> piofcube: Presumably, the Arduino could be use to mass produce products
[0:43] <hamitron> when I saw the r-pi on ITV news about an hour ago, I got really bad sinking feeling
[0:43] <GabrialDestruir> Those numbers seem wrong....
[0:43] <Hexxeh> zgreg: that's not at all bad
[0:43] <mekas> The new Intel Atom boards are about $80, have HDMI use about 10 watts and are 6"x6"
[0:44] <GabrialDestruir> wouldn't it be closer to 1/2 the speed of an intel atom?
[0:44] <zgreg> GabrialDestruir: why?
[0:44] <piofcube> yeah... Most likely their goal is "sell as many arduinos and make a profit"... not a bad goal for a commercial venture
[0:44] <zgreg> GabrialDestruir: don't tell me you're only looking at the MHz
[0:44] <GabrialDestruir> Yea I was .-.
[0:45] <GabrialDestruir> I tend to forget about the other things. lol
[0:45] <zgreg> the ARM11 is MUCH weaker than the atom
[0:45] <hamitron> I just wanna know if it will beat my 500MHz K6-2
[0:45] <OneFix_Work> piofcube: But if what you need is a system capable of running a simple embeded Linux application, then the rPi will blow away other projects like the BeagleBoard or the PandaBoard

[0:47] <Hexxeh> anyone know working versions for crossdev to target raspi?
[0:47] <Hexxeh> trying to get my toolchain together
[0:48] <DT_> most atoms probably also have been given a ton more ram

[0:48] <mekas> http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/motherboards/desktop-motherboards/desktop-board-d2700dc.html
[0:48] <mekas> That's the latest Intel atom board
[0:48] <pingec> so what, we wil overclock it to 5GHz!!!
[0:48] <GabrialDestruir> Most Atoms probably would be given at least a GB to start... and go up
[0:48] <OneFix_Work> zgreg: What will make the rPi more capable is the code available for the CPU

[1:04] <OneFix_Work> hamitron: From what I gather, there will be an open (though maybe not GPL) version of the source for the chip that would (for instance) not have access to the GPU.

[1:11] <Ben64> thats bullshit
[1:11] <mekas> The D510MO uses DDR2 the newer one used DDR3
[1:11] <Ben64> if i have to pay shipping from farnell i'll be pissed
[1:11] <OneFix_Work> Ben64: No, the $20 fee was a typo...it will be removed from any order that it appears on
[1:11] <GabrialDestruir> They should do prioritization by order number, not location .-.
[1:12] <Ben64> OneFix_Work: they didn't say any of that 18 hours ago
[1:12] <mekas> Well that's good news OneFix
[1:12] <Ben64> said uncancellable unrefundable $20
[1:12] <GabrialDestruir> Yea, lienze or whatever his name

[1:13] <mekas> They are Syliss
[1:13] <mekas> What country are you in Syliss ?
[1:13] <GabrialDestruir> Newark would be paying a $20 fee which was better than anyone elses because everyone who ordered from farnell export would be getting $107 out the door and crap
[1:13] <DaQatz> It's not $42 from farnell
[1:13] <Ben64> especially since raspberrypi said shipping is included
[1:13] <Syliss> mekas: usa
[1:13] <Ben64> DaQatz: the hell it wasn't
[1:13] <mekas> The new atom board is < $100 shipped
[1:13] <DaQatz> it's 35 plus 7 shipping
[1:14] <OneFix_Work> Ben64: Yea, but when did they say it would be shipped to you?
[1:14] <Syliss> mekas: which one?

[1:51] <ddss|mips> i use screen and irssi for irc and lynx to check my webmail and check news

[1:51] <mekas> Moleskins ? You should switch to paper.
[1:51] <Ben64> r-?? is like smartphone power
[1:51] <plum> how do you get a mouse, keyboard, and wireless working on it? i would suspect you use the usb ports for mouse and keyboard, but if you don't have a router nearby to connect with an ethernet cord, you can't plug in a wifi usb card
[1:51] <maahes> Moleskins > paper.
[1:51] <peteyg> plum: USB hubs.
[1:52] <plum> peteyg: wouldn't they both be taken by usb mouse + usb keyboard?
[1:52] <plum> or is there three?
[1:52] <Ben64> hub
[1:52] <maahes> peteyg: that sounds painfully bus constrained.
[1:52] <plum> OH
[1:52] <mekas> plum get a $5 USB hub
[1:52] <SpeedEvil> You can attach ~255 devices through hubs
[1:52] <plum> misread your post, my bad

[2:37] <IT_Sean> O_o Not really sure how that would work
[2:37] <iBog> Syliss: yes, there are instructions online how to replace the power supply on the airport to make it USB powered
[2:37] <iBog> airport express
[2:37] <Syliss> lol, but cool
[2:38] <IT_Sean> That may POWER it, but, it won't add wifi to the raspi.
[2:38] <iBog> I want one for my boat lol
[2:38] <chanmaster> lulz hack an airport express
[2:38] <chanmaster> and mate it to a raspberry pi
[2:38] <chanmaster> would sort of look like a sick love child
[2:39] <Syliss> i was thinking of taking my wrt54g and adding a rpi to it, inside it
[2:39] <victhor> airport express is an AP... closest thing to a wifi card would be bridge mode.

[2:44] <GabrialDestruir> Dude o.o
[2:44] <GabrialDestruir> The rPi could fit in a WRT54G o.o
[2:44] <GabrialDestruir> I didn't even think of that
[2:44] <Syliss> i did when i realized my 54g v8 board is smaller then my 54gs
[2:44] <UnaClocker> I want to build a Mame cabinet with my first Pi.

[2:45] <UnaClocker> GabrialDestruir: As long as you're not expecting better than 16bit games.
[2:45] <UnaClocker> Might do N64 too.. Not sure yet..
[2:45] <ReggieUK> GabrialDestruir, maybe
[2:45] <GabrialDestruir> I'm going to use my rPi to navigate a sattelite through space junk!
[2:45] <GabrialDestruir> >.>
[2:45] <ReggieUK> there is an sdl version of mame
[2:46] <iBog> GabrialDestruir: I need everything powered by usb
[2:46] <ReggieUK> which would probably be the easier to compile right now
[2:46] <iBog> Syliss: any other way to open the AE? dremel?
[2:46] <Syliss> iBog: u do realize that the board itself will not be able to power much right?
[2:46] <ReggieUK> although I keep forgetting, pi isn't a random target that we'd have to try and shoehorn something into to work
[2:47] <GabrialDestruir> I was thinking there needs to be a case with a built in powered hub
[2:47] <iBog> Syliss: rasp? just would be fun to make an airplay server
[2:47] <Syliss> i was going to do that GabrialDestruir
[2:47] <GabrialDestruir> powered by like a 12V adapter that runs the Pi and the hub
[2:47] <GabrialDestruir> .-.
[2:47] <Syliss> iBog: if you can get them cheap, sure

[2:49] <iBog> http://www.kivic-one.com/
[2:49] <GabrialDestruir> and an "extension" port over the GPIO so you could still access them
[2:49] <Syliss> GabrialDestruir: its possible, there is a company that will do 3d printing in not just crappy plastic
[2:49] <GabrialDestruir> Eh, it'd be more than just 3D printing though. lol
[2:50] <Syliss> not really, u can stick in a usb hub and wifi into it
[2:51] <GabrialDestruir> Yes, but to make them actually apart of the case so it doesn't look tacky? :p
[2:51] <Syliss> hence the 3d printing
[2:51] <iBog> ok??? so how to make rasp a wifi AP?
[2:51] <SpeedEvil> Find a USB stick that can do AP mode.
[2:52] <iBog> all powered by USB?
[2:52] <GabrialDestruir> iBog, I was looking at this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00333AWTA/ref=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_g147_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1F5ARVGVTGCGCR5W1DAS&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846
[2:52] <GabrialDestruir> or something similar
[2:52] <iBog> ok
[2:52] <GabrialDestruir> Cause supposedly it can do "Master Mode"
[2:52] <iBog> needs driver too
[2:53] <GabrialDestruir> Yea, but that was a given.
[2:53] <iBog> never seen good 3d printing to make a case
[2:53] <GabrialDestruir> It says linux support, but who knows if that extends over to ARM devices.
[2:54] <iBog> I was gonna use a ziplockbag lol
[2:54] <UnaClocker> http://www.amazon.com/TRENDnet-Mbps-Wireless-Easy-N-Upgrader-TEW-637AP/dp/B00134LUE2 I use one of these to make a WIFI AP for my SheevaPlug.. It'd work well with the Pi as well.
[2:54] <iBog> yep
[2:54] <GabrialDestruir> Yea that could work, but I was looking at price as well as functionality.
[2:54] <unkle_george> Cluster anyone: http://antipastohw.blogspot.com/2010/09/how-to-make-beagleboard-elastic-r.html
[2:54] <unkle_george> Could do with the RPi
[2:54] <UnaClocker> Yeah, I got mine free from a friend. ;)

[3:03] <ReggieUK> you can do flash, if you make it do flash but banging on about wishing it would do flash gets kind of annoying after a while
[3:04] <SpeedEvil> Mine shows 26.55 and 14.16
[3:04] <UnaClocker> Flash is crap.
[3:04] <SpeedEvil> I haven't checked out thouhg.
[3:04] <Milhouse> Going to contact Farnell in the morning and ask for my back-order to be corrected
[3:04] <traeak> thankfully flash is dying
[3:04] <SpeedEvil> yeah - same price drop here.
[3:04] <traeak> facebook gaming is starting to fall
[3:04] <traeak> hehe
[3:04] <SpeedEvil> traeak: In some cases. One of my 'killer apps' is flash.

[3:05] <iBog> is the SD card SDIO
[3:05] <iBog> ?
[3:05] <GabrialDestruir> I suppose if you really wanted a solution you could probably virtualize on another computer
[3:05] <iBog> I have a eyefi card. has an integrated AP

[3:15] <SpeedEvil> No.

[3:18] <SpeedEvil> It's hard to make it close to idiot proof otherwise.
[3:18] <GabrialDestruir> Well you'd still need some sort of wifi connection between the PC and the card
[3:18] <ReggieUK> of course, I was just thinking that funnily enough
[3:18] <Syliss> maybe ill use my amazon gift cards towards an appletv and just use xbmc

[4:07] <MBS> if they try to pull that $20 handling free s***, gunna chargeback it
[4:07] <MBS> *free
[4:07] <MBS> *fee
[4:07] <Henchman21> heh
[4:07] <ewan> 20$ handling
[4:07] <GabrialDestruir> -.-
[4:07] <Henchman21> i kind of feel bad my friend ordered one with the 20$ fee earlier
[4:07] <ewan> fuck that noise
[4:07] <ewan> I'll wait
[4:07] <GabrialDestruir> They canceled the 20 dollar fee
[4:08] <GabrialDestruir> It was a type
[4:08] <GabrialDestruir> typo*
[4:08] <Henchman21> thank god
[4:08] <Henchman21> stired up the hive
[4:08] <GabrialDestruir> It didn't stir up the hive so much as that Lienze person did
[4:08] <Henchman21> stopped me from getting one earlier
[4:08] <GabrialDestruir> trying to say "20 is better than 80"
[4:09] <Henchman21> i wonder howmuch shipping is though
[4:09] <Henchman21> just an ity wiw board
[4:10] <MBS> hmmm
[4:10] <MBS> apparently shipping cost is unknown until it ships
[4:10] <GabrialDestruir> Through farnell it's 7 bucks
[4:10] <GabrialDestruir> supposedly
[4:10] <MBS> but there is a coupon for free shipping with $100 purchase, but i dont need 3, lol
[4:11] <Henchman21> buy 3 and sell em to your friends
[4:12] <Henchman21> now when will model A be on sale
[4:12] <MBS> thats what im thinking, about to ask if friend wants to order together
[4:12] <mekas> Better question when will the model A be shipped.
[4:13] <Henchman21> next ummer

[4:29] <Aethaeryn> Is there a reason to go in large volume?
[4:29] <Aethaeryn> i.e. make a pseudo-super-computer with 40 of them or something :-P
[4:30] <GabrialDestruir> If I could build a computer from a few of those vs spending hundreds of dollars....
[4:31] <GabrialDestruir> That'd be an interesting project
[4:31] <Aethaeryn> 40 rasberry pis in parallel *will* do some tasks better than a $1400 computer. But not most.
[4:32] <MBS> not many
[4:32] <MBS> there is a coupon code for free shipping with $100 purchase today
[4:32] <Aethaeryn> MBS: Depends on how you program.
[4:32] <MBS> i mean i guess i could technically order some random $65 random thing but
[4:33] <MBS> program raspberry pi version very efficiently, and make x86 version as inefficient as possible?
[4:33] <ReggieUK> I want to palm stuff off onto a pi that i know it will be good at, leaving my laptop doing the grunt work
[4:33] <Ben64> pi doesn't have good bandwidth
[4:33] <ReggieUK> it doesn't need much for what I want to do
[4:34] <Aethaeryn> hmm, 4 of them have 1 GB of RAM, so 40 of them would have 10 GB combined RAM.
[4:34] <Ben64> limited to 12.5MB/s on network, so a bramble could only get so big before it gets terribly inefficient
[4:34] <GabrialDestruir> I wonder... could you attach an ethernet via GPIO somehow? Also would it be any faster than USB or the built in one? >.>
[4:34] <ReggieUK> as long as it can cope with a frame every couple of seconds from a webcam and analyse it for object movement, that'll do just fine
[4:35] <Ben64> could do that with one pi
[4:35] <Aethaeryn> hmm, I wonder if someone *will* build a super computer out of a few thousand just for lulz, even though it'd be inefficient.
[4:35] <ReggieUK> indeed Ben64
[4:35] <ReggieUK> there are some other things I'd like it to do but I'd prefer a 2nd pi for that too
[4:35] <MBS> sure 10GB connect ram, alot of it taken by redundant things, and probably pretty low memory bandwidth
[4:36] <Ben64> could make an 8 core computer with more ram for cheaper
[4:37] <Aethaeryn> Of course.
[4:37] <Aethaeryn> Just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be done economically speaking.

[4:58] <UnaClocker> Ahh.. Good trick..
[4:58] <DataSpree> UnaClocker: they've not released all the schematics yet and it would be hard to acquire the SOC for cheaper than the foundation can get it
[4:59] <Aethaeryn> It's okay, Generation II will be better anyway.

[5:39] <DataSpree> What is the maximum speed of the raspberry pi's SD card reader?
[5:40] <sraue> i am not sure, is this documented anywhere?
[5:40] <ShiftPlusOne> class 10 is meant to be fine, but there have been some issues
[5:41] <GabrialDestruir> Class 10 cards aren't as good for the little stuff
[5:41] <GabrialDestruir> better for bigger stuff
[5:41] <sraue> what for issues, if the cardreader cant handle class 10 (higher then 10MB/s) then it should work with a slower speed?
[5:42] <ShiftPlusOne> maybe they will fix class 10 in software, maybe not. so maybe go under class 10
[5:43] <GabrialDestruir> Well there's still the issue of Class 10s aren't as good for the smaller quick read/writes this has been proven by people working with Nook Colors

[5:48] <sraue> the problem: class 10 means over 10MB/s, so you can buy chap 10-15MB/s cards or more expensive 90MB/s cards, for example if the cardreader would supprt 30MB/s i would go with a faster card, if the cardreader will support 8MB/s a 10MB/s card is enough
[5:49] <GabrialDestruir> The reader may be able to write/read at class 10, but it's been show they still have issues with the small quick writes/reads
[5:51] <Dagger3> you can alternately buy the much cheaper class 4 cards, which are more likely to acheive random write speeds higher than the 10-30 kB/s that C6/10 cards typically get
[5:53] <GabrialDestruir> Yea
[5:53] <GabrialDestruir> But then you're stuck with the issue of not good with the bigger stuff.... so it's all a game of sacrifice
[5:54] <DataSpree> so probably a small SD card for the firmwares and kernels and a small usb flash drive for the OS would be a faster combination

[6:28] <Wolfram74> is "registering interest" different from pre-ordering?
[6:29] <malandro95> Wolfram74: yes
[6:29] <Wolfram74> ho'kay then
[6:29] <DataSpree> yes. one takes your email address the other takes your money (and email address)
[6:29] <sraue> malandro95, look for cheap mobile phone poweradapters
[6:29] <malandro95> I bought a batch of 8, and they are supposed to ship within 30 days
[6:29] <malandro95> Hopefully sooner than later
[6:29] <mekas> They didn't chage your 8 to 1 ?
[6:30] <malandro95> there is a $20 handling fee per order, which is why I got 8. My co-workers each wanted one too.
[6:30] <malandro95> Nope, they weren't restrictive on quantity.
[6:30] <malandro95> Which I supposed means that people could hoard, but we most of my coworkers wanted one.
[6:30] <mekas> The $20 was suppose to be an error.
[6:30] <mekas> And was eliminated.
[6:30] <malandro95> really? $20 is pretty cheap for shipping.
[6:31] <malandro95> cuz there were no shipping costs.
[6:31] <mekas> Not for 1
[6:31] <mekas> For 8 maybe
[6:31] <malandro95> yah, it is high for 1
[6:31] <malandro95> but it ships from china
[6:31] <Wolfram74> i think since the RpI is light and low power consumption it might make a nice processor for doing some instrument control on high altitude physics platforms
[6:33] <malandro95> I'm thinking XBMC in my minivan???.. sweeeeet??????.
[6:33] <GabrialDestruir> DAMN YOU XBMC PEOPLE >.>
[6:34] <GabrialDestruir> I want to build a car computer with mine...
[6:34] <mekas> lol
[6:34] <GabrialDestruir> but last I checked Linux doesn't have great GPS software stuff
[6:34] <malandro95> car computer? THAT'S WHAT I SAID!!
[6:34] <malandro95> :-D
[6:34] <mekas> Don't worrk if it starts getting popular Microsoft will release WindowsMobile for it as a preemptive measure
[6:34] <Pixman> rm, huh?
[6:34] <rm> what
[6:35] <DataSpree> GabrialDestruir: the Android Linux distribution my phone runs seems to have great GPS navigation software :p
[6:35] <Pixman> what about the link you sent me?
[6:35] <Wolfram74> order placed, now to wait 3 months until it ships

[6:37] <Wolfram74> i ordered 1 unit, and they aren't charging shipping it seems
[6:37] <GabrialDestruir> Yet
[6:38] <malandro95> GabrialDestruir: that's why I like the SD card design. one could be configured for XBMC, another could be figured for python development. the possibilities are endless!
[6:38] <malandro95> sraue: I'm not familiar with OpenElec
[6:38] <GabrialDestruir> Yea....
[6:38] <GabrialDestruir> but if I designed a carputer, I'd want it to stay in the car.
[6:38] <sraue> malandro95, its easy to install and handle

[6:44] <GabrialDestruir> I'm wondering just how much power a decent Car computer would need though....
[6:44] <GabrialDestruir> Like what all does it have to do?
[6:45] <malandro95> depends on how many usb peripherals you have hooked up

[6:49] <Aethaeryn> Idk, if touchscreens are cheap, why don't people buy the computer component, the touch screen, and the wifi, and just build their own?
[6:50] <GabrialDestruir> Now see, if I had a van... with multiple screens....
[6:50] <GabrialDestruir> I'd want to have like.... double computers...
[6:50] <GabrialDestruir> so I'd need virtualization
[6:50] <hotwings> touchscreen decks for cars arent that expensive anymore
[6:50] <hotwings> you can get a good one for $300 these days
[6:51] <hotwings> a great one for twice+
[6:51] <GabrialDestruir> 300 isn't expensive?
[6:51] <GabrialDestruir> .-.
[6:51] <GabrialDestruir> To me like 100 isn't expensive
[6:51] <Aethaeryn> hotwings: remember, we're in the channel of "the $25 computer"
[6:51] <hotwings> i dont think so, not for a 7" touchscreen media player
[6:52] <GabrialDestruir> For 300 you could buy a 7" tablet
[6:52] <hotwings> sure, the rpi is supposed to cost $25-$35... but we're talking about car touchscreens at the moment, not rpis

[7:06] <malandro95> vnc would work
[7:06] <malandro95> but I think that a cable might be nice
[7:06] <malandro95> either way, I'm excited
[7:06] <GabrialDestruir> Cable would be faster if you could get it to work right.
[7:06] <malandro95> It will be like Christmas in 30 days (or so)

[8:00] <Aethaeryn> I'll wait for the second batch though while everyone here stresses out over getting it first. :-P

[8:30] <kdnewton> Waking from my slumber to help stop the spread of disinformation: Raspberry Pi has not "run out". The point of licensing them to the 2 distributors was so they could be built to order. If you purchase a Raspberry Pi now it will be back ordered and will ship to you when it comes available.
[8:31] <kdnewton> I probably should have known better than to take the bait ;)
[8:31] <ilukester> kdnewton - but does this meann that the distributors can set the price?

[8:34] <ilukester> Well it was looking like the US guys were going to have to pay a $20 handling fee. which then is really a big boost in price
[8:35] <GabrialDestruir> That supposedly was a typo....
[8:35] <GabrialDestruir> but I bet if people hadn't complained to the foundation about it.... franell would of never fixed it

[8:38] <hotwings> the whole allure of the rpi is its cost.. if it cant be had at their advertised price + REASONABLE shipping charges, then its no longer interesting. the hardware itself is cool but its capabilities arent all that impressive
[8:39] <hotwings> in other words, they can take that $20 shipping charge and shove it
[8:39] <GabrialDestruir> Indeed.
[8:39] <mekas> Price + size + capabilities are at a unique point.
[8:39] <mekas> + power consumption
[8:39] <GabrialDestruir> I'm thinking though as time passes we'll start to see more capable Pi with the same cost
[8:39] * aMunster (~amunster@ Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)

I'm not a Linux fan, and not interested in building yet another Windows machine-let!" and "Can i Get A mac OS X on it? it would be really cool" shows many ppl dont know what there runs
[8:42] <kdnewton> I sure hope shipping is reasonable. I purchased (in Canada) and the "shipping and taxes" field tells me they'll determine costs when it's available to ship.
[8:43] <GabrialDestruir> 1GB of ram?
[8:43] <GabrialDestruir> Minecraft? :p
[8:44] <hotwings> sraue - i think a lot of people are overestimating what an rpi is good for
[8:44] <kdnewton> Expected delivery: May 10, 2012. Anyway, time for sleep. G'night.

[8:44] <GabrialDestruir> 1GB of Ram is enough to run Minecraft >.>
[8:45] <GabrialDestruir> So there's that
[8:45] <hotwings> i only use linux for dvr/htpc, and fileserver
[8:45] <hotwings> never touched a linux desktop
[8:45] <GabrialDestruir> only need 2Mhz processing power, supposedly.
[8:46] <GabrialDestruir> I'm going to use my Pi for the only thing it's apparently good for exlcuding robotics....
[8:46] <GabrialDestruir> Which is apparently as a media center >.>
[8:47] <GabrialDestruir> I suppose it'd work for a fileserver too
[8:48] <hotwings> not if you care about speed at all :)
[8:48] <oberling> yeah but only without any encryption
[8:48] <oberling> + @ hotwings
[8:48] <hotwings> my only interest in rpi is for a media device aswell
[8:48] <Mavy> anybody thought about using it as a carpc?
[8:48] <GabrialDestruir> Well my entire network is already limited to 100Mb/s anyways
[8:48] <GabrialDestruir> So it's not like the rPi is outside that scope
[8:49] <hotwings> your usb port is limited in bandwidth too
[8:49] <oberling> i'm interested in having the oportunity to connect a big display to tiny embedded hardware ...
[8:49] <hotwings> cpu counts for a fileserver too
[8:49] * vin (~vincent@fsf/member/vin) has left #raspberrypi
[8:49] <hotwings> that sounds cool oberling
[8:50] <a5m0> hmm i just got an email from newark listing a 5/11 ship date, but they didn't say anything about "you can only order 1" since i ordered 3 for the free shipping coupon
[8:50] <GabrialDestruir> It just has to be able to serve up a list of files that someone can download, doesn't it? .-.
[8:50] <oberling> of course it does, GabrialDestruir :)
[8:51] <GabrialDestruir> You're in the pre-order branch of ordering now, pretty sure there's no limit anymore.
[8:51] <GabrialDestruir> Considering the first batch is gone
[8:51] <oberling> i had a sheevaplug running for some time here... it gave me a whole lot of 6 MegaByte/s when transfering Data over ssh read from an encrypted hdd via USB
[8:51] <oberling> and it had 1,2GHz in it
[8:52] <oberling> when i used ftp (so unencrypted at least on transmission) it already gave me round about 9 MB/s
[8:52] <GabrialDestruir> That still sounds a lot faster than what I get with windows anways .-.
[8:52] <oberling> but now imagine you only have 700MHz and not a "real" Ethernetport
[8:52] <oberling> hehe
[8:52] <oberling> :D
[8:53] <GabrialDestruir> o.O
[8:53] <GabrialDestruir> Not a "real" ethernet port?
[8:53] <GabrialDestruir> Then wth is it?
[8:53] <weuxel> GabrialDestruir: USB-Ethernet Interface
[8:53] <oberling> it's also just connected through the USB-Bus
[8:53] <hotwings> oberling 6MB/sec? slow down, your hardware is going to catch on fire ;)

[9:33] <zinit> long delivery time now it seems... was sold out after 2 hours:P
[9:33] <RaTTuS|BIG> 7mins
[9:33] <RaTTuS|BIG> the RS statment is informative
[9:33] <GabrialDestruir> Good thing I got my order in early.
[9:33] <GabrialDestruir> ^_^
[9:33] <rob_> what's the shortest delivery time people have heard of?
[9:33] <rob_> mine comes on 12/03
[9:33] <zinit> uk/ireland was aparently 2 hours I heard.. (sites went down so took ages to get it ordered)
[9:34] <hbro> MBS: lol you're in the raspberrypi channel, and you 're asking what an rpi is? :D
[9:34] <GabrialDestruir> Outside the UK, or inside?
[9:34] <zinit> mine was estimated to 16/04 at the latest
[9:34] <rob_> inside
[9:34] <MBS> whats a channel
[9:34] <GabrialDestruir> apparently UK customers are getting top priority
[9:34] <zinit> I'm in ireland
[9:34] <hbro> lol
[9:34] <RaTTuS|BIG> zinit mine is 16 april
[9:34] <zinit> ordered from the uk shop. the ireland one was down
[9:35] <GabrialDestruir> because mine is 4/16 and so are a few others, but there have been claims of people with orders later than mine
[9:35] <GabrialDestruir> of like March
[9:35] <zinit> same for mine
[9:35] <RaTTuS|BIG> http://www.electrocomponents.com/media/press-releases/2012/02/29th/
[9:35] <rob_> i saw one which was 12/10
[9:35] <zinit> they stopped taking orders here around 11.am
[9:35] <MBS> wow
[9:35] <zinit> now its just the "show interest"
[9:35] <MBS> mine is expecting may 11th :|
[9:35] <rm> rob_, 12 march really?
[9:35] <RaTTuS|BIG> got mine in at about 8:15 yesternay mornign
[9:35] <oberling> mine has not yet a delivery date ;) - at least not online... just the woman on the farnell phone told me about end of march ...
[9:35] <zinit> I ordered mine at 8.am yesterday
[9:35] <MBS> if i see one go on ebay for less than 75 or so will cancel this order and just get that
[9:36] <oberling> nothing shure
[9:36] <rob_> rm: yeah 12 days baby!
[9:36] <zinit> dont buy on ebay
[9:36] <rob_> zinit: me too, 8:15
[9:36] <MBS> zinit, why not?
[9:36] <zinit> its most likly hoaxes
[9:36] <rm> because your wait will be even longer
[9:36] <MBS> well not now, but when people actually get them
[9:36] <rm> ebay resellers are in the same line as everyone else
[9:36] <oberling> have you read everythin in the offer properly, MBS?
[9:36] <zinit> there was 2 ads out at 5.am yesterday morning... release was at 6
[9:36] <mekas> RS expects to receive the first batch of boards into warehouses late next week, with the shipping of products on a first come, first served basis in line with customer registrations.
[9:36] <rm> except they have to wait for multi-orders to open
[9:36] <MBS> wont pay for a preorder on ebay, but im sure some people will actually receive and then sell
[9:37] <abaxas> who cares
[9:37] <abaxas> order one
[9:37] * kiefer is now known as kieferz
[9:37] <abaxas> infact no
[9:37] <abaxas> order 2
[9:37] <oberling> yeah of course - if people got them and figure out they bought - to them - useless hardware i will be on ebay too :D
[9:37] <abaxas> one from farnell, one from RS (when they alloow you)
[9:37] <zinit> saw one was up for 900? on ebay last night:P
[9:37] <MBS> cuz right now, having to wait 2.5 months is kinda....
[9:37] <abaxas> sell the other for what you paid
[9:37] <abaxas> job done.
[9:37] <rm> MBS, sure, let's hope someone orders 100pcs and then resells on ebay or wherever with more sane shipping options than what Farnell offers (or even local pick up)
[9:37] <rm> that'd be ok
[9:37] <zinit> farnell had a one-per-order policy
[9:37] <zinit> I tried ordering 2. it said one was max
[9:38] <rm> they're going to lift it in a month
[9:38] <MBS> yeah newark does too
[9:38] * RaTTuS|BIG has to install win7 on 10 PC's today
[9:38] <zinit> nice:)
[9:38] <MBS> wonder how many orders have been placed so far
[9:38] <RaTTuS|BIG> http://www.electrocomponents.com/media/press-releases/2012/02/29th/
[9:39] <GabrialDestruir> I think at this point
[9:39] <zinit> probably alot... heard that farnells ordering system was begging for mercy yesterday.. thats why they stopped the pre-order
[9:39] <RaTTuS|BIG> tens of tousands on rs
[9:39] <GabrialDestruir> er wait
[9:39] <GabrialDestruir> someone else earlier said they got 3
[9:39] <zinit> first batch was 10k
[9:39] <MBS> you can order more
[9:39] <popey> if you order multiple RPi from Farnell, they silently change your order down to 1
[9:39] <MBS> but they supposedly send you an email tell you about 1 limit
[9:39] <popey> there was no mail about the limit, it just confirmed I'd ordered 1
[9:39] <MBS> wonder how low some will sell for on ebay
[9:40] <zinit> I got a popup saying 1 was max when I was going to confirm the order

[9:48] <zinit> gonna be interesting to see if I can find a way to hook up a serial link to the card when I get it... dont have any monitor with HDMI.... only have laptops at my house for the moment
[9:49] <RaTTuS|BIG> tou can ssh into it
[9:49] <oberling> and which monitor do you plan to connect via serial? ;)
[9:49] <GabrialDestruir> Couldn't you hook serial to GPIO?
[9:49] <RaTTuS|BIG> you*
[9:49] <zinit> hope the new monitors we'r getting at work have hdmi...
[9:49] <zinit> you need to configure it..
[9:49] <zinit> got a pinout?

[9:49] <GabrialDestruir> No
[9:49] <chrisjunkie> so about 2000UTC
[9:49] <zinit> havent been able to find a sensible one...
[9:49] <[deXter]> O.o
[9:50] <GabrialDestruir> as far as I know, a proper one doesn't exist yet
[9:50] <[deXter]> chrisjunkie, Im from NZ.. checked e14 yesterday night and it said to wait for a month.
[9:50] <chrisjunkie> [deXter]: yeah same, could still place in cart and order and pay for it though
[9:50] <zinit> the card doesnt have a serial port chip. so takes an addon board with that
[9:51] <[deXter]> chrisjunkie, Awesome. Any ETAs yet?
[9:51] <zinit> (at least thats what I've been able to find out)

[9:54] <zinit> called the shop on monday, they wont get the cards in till june or so. (hence I ordered online)

[9:57] <chrisjunkie> zinit: New Zealand Dollars
[9:57] <chrisjunkie> which is pretty good considering
[9:57] <zinit> how much is that in euros?
[9:58] <zinit> you get about 1,5 US$ on the euro
[9:58] <chrisjunkie> zinit: http://www.xe.com/ucc/convert/?Amount=48&From=NZD&To=EUR

[10:20] <Milos> there basically isn't a start menu
[10:20] <chrisjunkie> do what apple are doing and keep desktop and tablet different
[10:20] <haltdef> there is, it's just a fullscreen monostrocity

[10:22] * chrisjunkie means *fudge

[10:22] <chrisjunkie> I dunno, I think windows will always be dominant
[10:22] <chrisjunkie> just look at corporates
[10:22] <chrisjunkie> its TOO HARD to move
[10:23] <[deXter]> Well the corporate scene is different.
[10:23] <[deXter]> I bet you they'll run XP past 2014 if they can.
[10:23] <chrisjunkie> [deXter]: yes, and it is HUGE
[10:23] <Snowl> the only good part about windows 8 is that it has an ARM version, and that this should help boost linux
[10:23] * chrisjunkie goes to bed. Late night trying to get to e14 last night

[10:23] <haltdef> win8 on ARM is just pointless
[10:24] <haltdef> not emulating x86 is reasonable, not being able to port x86 apps? fuck off MS
[10:24] <[deXter]> Yeah, it's about as useful as a Windows Phone.
[10:24] <[deXter]> It's only Windows in name, thats all.
[10:24] <SLFCore> why is there discussion about Windows when this is a Raspberry Pi channel?
[10:25] <[deXter]> SLFCore, Because everyone is tired talking about not being able to order a Pi.
[10:25] <MBS> haltdef, worse, no native ARM programs at all anyway
[10:25] <MBS> everything interpreted
[10:25] <MBS> well at least by default
[10:25] <haltdef> nothin wrong with a bit of offtopic once in a while
[10:25] <ShiftPlusOne> SLFCore, because this channel turned into a channel where people just come to rant about things they don't like, it seems.

[10:26] <[deXter]> SLFCore, Great, and when would you expect delivery? Next year?
[10:26] <SLFCore> ShiftPlusOne: lol.. i do acknowledge that the marketing was fail
[10:26] <SLFCore> deXter: within 30 days they said even after $20 shipping
[10:26] <[deXter]> O.o

[10:30] <SLFCore> they don't provide that
[10:30] <[deXter]> Ah, that's all good
[10:30] <SLFCore> i ordered that separately off ebay
[10:30] <[deXter]> I have plenty of those lying around. :)
[10:30] <haltdef> .. ebay?
[10:30] <SLFCore> they are just giving you the PCB board
[10:30] <haltdef> I'd cancel that immediately

[10:32] <Ben64> oh
[10:32] <Snowl> Any place to get those cables for the AU?
[10:32] <neofutur> is there somewhere a list of countries where the pi can be shipped ?

[10:32] <RaTTuS|BIG> neofutur all placves
[10:32] <SLFCore> neofutur: everywhere
[10:32] <Snowl> does it need to be a micro B USB or can it just be any micro usb?
[10:33] <SLFCore> neofutur: check out newark.com in my opinion
[10:33] <neofutur> I already registered on 2 websites whou cant ship to Peru
[10:33] <SLFCore> Snowl: MICRO B USB
[10:33] <SLFCore> not any
[10:33] <Snowl> ok
[10:33] <neofutur> ok will try this one
[10:33] <RaTTuS|BIG> look on amazon
[10:33] <mekas> neofurur are you one of those people that thought 'worldwide' meant the whole world ?
[10:34] <SLFCore> neofutur: did you register on Farnell or RS Components?
[10:34] <Ben64> neofutur: i'll be getting at least two pi's, if you want one
[10:34] <RaTTuS|BIG> http://www.farnell.com/
[10:34] <SLFCore> true even i might sell one of my Pi's
[10:34] <SLFCore> for $100
[10:34] <SLFCore> joking lol
[10:34] <Ben64> wanker
[10:35] <Ben64> i'd sell mine for cost + shipping
[10:35] <[deXter]> Ok SLFCore, I'm hitting the "Buy" button. @everyone: If you know of a site that can do better than March 31, now's the time to stop me! lol
[10:35] <Snowl> ordering micro b from mono price, shipping: 35 dolloars
[10:35] <lennard> I just had a report from someone farnell only wanted to ship 1 unit

[10:39] <slide> whaaa seriously
[10:39] <slide> holy lol
[10:39] <rm> export.farnell.com sends to anywhere, but only via UPS
[10:39] <Ben64> rm: O_O
[10:40] <Ben64> maybe i should cancel my farnell order
[10:40] <slide> yea can i cancel that preorder? lol
[10:40] <Snowl> lol
[10:40] <Ben64> raspberry pi said shipping included
[10:40] <joeka> :D
[10:41] <Ben64> https://twitter.com/#!/Raspberry_Pi/status/174789638907637760
[10:41] <RaTTuS|BIG> yes that is the price differnce between rs and farnell
[10:41] <SLFCore> Newark FTW
[10:42] <Ben64> so then why would it include shipping, but then charge $70 more for shipping

[10:43] <drazyl> because it includes local shipping not international freight
[10:43] <rm> Ben64, did you order on export.farnell.com?
[10:43] <slide> i did
[10:43] <slide> it said shipping TBD
[10:43] <rm> I see
[10:43] <Ben64> rm: yep
[10:43] <Ben64> also ordered on newark
[10:44] <Ben64> also was interested in RS
[10:44] <rm> someone was checking the UPS website yesterday, and from there they got that the cheapest option is around $70 from UK to the US
[10:44] <rm> google for UPS rates
[10:44] <Ben64> big companies can get better deals than people
[10:44] <rm> they should have a calculator there
[10:44] <ShiftPlusOne> rm, UPS from UK? What?
[10:45] <rm> What what.
[10:45] <ShiftPlusOne> Why on Earth would you use UPS to get something from UK? It's an overpriced US service.
[10:45] <rm> ShiftPlusOne, export.farnell.com has UPS as the only shipping option, and they don't tell you the shipping price until actually have stock
[10:45] <rm> ShiftPlusOne, ask Farnell
[10:46] <ShiftPlusOne> that doesn't make any sense
[10:46] * LWK_mac (~LWK@pdpc/supporter/student/lwk) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[10:46] <SLFCore> it says my expected shipping date is May 10th

[10:46] <SLFCore> 2012
[10:46] <Snowl> rm: lold
[10:46] <SLFCore> lmfao what a question
[10:46] <rm> hehe
[10:47] <rm> so you're getting one this year what are you complaining about :P
[10:47] <SLFCore> FedEx Intl. Economy - 5 days (Order by 6:00 PM EST)
[10:47] <Davespice> did you mean shipping or delivery date?
[10:47] <SLFCore> Fed Ex 5 days = Gregorial Calendar 35 days
[10:47] <SLFCore> it says expected Ship date
[10:48] <ShiftPlusOne> Not exactly unfair though. We have to pay a lot more and much more often to get things from USA.
[10:48] <slide> ok i sent them an email at export@farnell.com asking about the shipping heh
[10:48] <ShiftPlusOne> but it's strange that they don't have a US distribution center
[10:48] <SLFCore> its in UK
[10:48] <Ben64> wow, i just looked at ups.com, 64.83 GBP for a 16x8x6cm package weighing 1kg
[10:49] <[deXter]> SLFCore, Woah. Good thing I haven't confirmed the order yet. :P
[10:49] <slide> uhhh $100??!?
[10:49] <SLFCore> lol
[10:49] <slide> lol
[10:49] <Ben64> on the flip side...
[10:50] <neofutur> Stocks from Raspberry Pi of the initial production quantity are limited and these have already sold out.
[10:50] <neofutur> on newark(element14
[10:50] <Ben64> usps.com, a 8-5/8" x 5-3/8" x 1-5/8" box weighing up to 4 pounds costs $16.95 to send to the UK from the US
[10:50] <RaTTuS|BIG> dont use parcel farce they will just loose the package
[10:50] <neofutur> yesterday, not working, couldnt order
[10:50] <neofutur> and now nothing
[10:50] <Ben64> usps wins
[10:51] <neofutur> to me the strange thing is not having a chinese distributor
[10:51] <neofutur> those ship worlwide for cheap , by boat ( slow but cheap )
[10:51] * M0GHY (~peterholl@ has joined #raspberrypi

[10:51] <neofutur> and have working websites :p
[10:52] <ShiftPlusOne> wait, what are you people on about? US Farnell is Newark, why would you use the export site? That will be free shipping.
[10:52] <RaTTuS|BIG> someone was sying they dot ship to puru
[10:52] <neofutur> Peru
[10:52] <RaTTuS|BIG> damn keyboard
[10:52] <Snowl> lol
[10:53] <MBS> would export site have it shipped sooner than newark?
[10:53] <RaTTuS|BIG> my exchuse
[10:53] <ShiftPlusOne> MBS, I wouldn't think so. I am sure they would priorotise their own distribution network first and then worry about export.
[10:53] <Ben64> nowhere is soon
[10:53] <neofutur> and this newark / element14 website is really buggy
[10:54] <ShiftPlusOne> never had a problem with element14
[10:54] <MBS> why did they limit initial production run to 10000
[10:54] <MBS> they knew they would get more orders than that
[10:54] <Simon-> hrm
[10:54] <steve_rox> costs
[10:54] <neofutur> well i cant login, theres already a user neofutur
[10:54] <Simon-> Farnell UK have lowered the price...
[10:54] <neofutur> cant register, theres already a user neofutur
[10:54] <ShiftPlusOne> MBS, because it costs a quarter of a million to get that many... and that's capital they have to contribute from their own pockets.
[10:54] <neofutur> and cant recover account , theres no user neofutur :p
[10:54] <[deXter]> neofutur, I had the same issue, so I just created a new account. :p
[10:55] <steve_rox> i love websites that fuckup the accounts like that
[10:55] <neofutur> I already registered 3 times
[10:55] <steve_rox> dabs did that to me
[10:55] <neofutur> on farnell, element14 and newark
[10:55] <neofutur> lost much time for nothing
[10:55] <MBS> thats what banks and venture capitalists are for :p
[10:55] <neofutur> thos java websites are all sh*t
[10:55] <ShiftPlusOne> MBS, you mean bloodsucking parasites?
[10:56] <Ben64> they did 10k to make sure they didn't order millions of defective boards
[10:56] <neofutur> and none of those websites give a list of the countries they can ship to _before_ you loose your time registering
[10:56] <ShiftPlusOne> actually if they were doing their own runs, the next one would also be 10k
[10:56] <ShiftPlusOne> because that's all they can afford right now
[10:56] <MBS> also
[10:56] <Ben64> don't think that is accurate
[10:56] <MBS> they could have just let people preorder
[10:57] <steve_rox> looks like someones been haxin google autocomplete , type "windows 8 is".. then see what ya get for autocomplete :-P
[10:57] <Ben64> they didn't want to take people's money without having the product
[10:57] <ShiftPlusOne> MBS, that's what this is... preorders.
[10:57] <MBS> they could have millions and millions of capital right now if they would have let people preorder (more than one)
[10:57] <[deXter]> I would have freely given them my money.
[10:57] <MBS> if people are fine giving their money without having the product, then they should take it
[10:58] * Buuyo (electrum@ieee1003.1-1988.posi.xxx) has left #raspberrypi
[10:58] <ShiftPlusOne> MBS, yeah you're right. But they didn't want to do what OpenPandora has done.
[10:58] <MBS> for example this famous historical quote: "shut up and take my money"
[10:58] <ShiftPlusOne> and Eben said they don't have experience with that and it's just something they want to avoid.
[10:58] <Ben64> spoken the by great phillip j fry
[10:58] <Simon-> MBS: and then it's "where is my product, give me a chargeback" and it all falls apart

[11:12] <neofutur> and no way to order :p
[11:13] <SLFCore> more that $180 easily

[11:16] <paul_-> seriously, begone troll
[11:16] <BCMM> SLFCore: why did you get one if you don't actually like them?
[11:16] <GabrialDestruir> What's the arguement about?
[11:16] <GabrialDestruir> .-.
[11:16] <SLFCore> BCMM: i got them for donation to charity
[11:17] <Ben64> $300 netbook vs $35 r-??
[11:17] <SLFCore> BCMM: i already have a few computers
[11:17] <pixolin> comparison between ??, netbooks ... and washing machines
[11:17] <GabrialDestruir> Wth .-.
[11:17] <BCMM> ok, why did you come here to complain about it?
[11:17] <GabrialDestruir> That's not a proper comparison
[11:17] <GabrialDestruir> Not by a long shot .-.
[11:17] <pixolin> not really
[11:17] <SLFCore> who said im complaining? this is not an official channel anyway
[11:17] <Ben64> yoip
[11:17] <BCMM> "oh my god, these people need to realise how wrong they are!"
[11:17] <drazyl> it also won't light candles as well as a 50p box of matches
[11:17] <GabrialDestruir> I mean I suppose you COULD compare them....
[11:18] <ShiftPlusOne> so.... if you think a raspberry pi is more expensive and comparable to a netbook... why not buy a netbook?
[11:18] <SLFCore> BCMM: whats your point exactly?
[11:18] <BCMM> SLFCore: more or less, it's "what's yours?"
[11:18] <pixolin> "One wrong-way driver? Many!"
[11:18] <GabrialDestruir> The netbook is probably Atom 1.6Ghz, 1 or 2 GB of Ram, worthless GPU
[11:18] <paul_-> ShiftPlusOne: because thats rationale, and we are dealing with a retard
[11:18] <SLFCore> BCMM: Good you asked me that question
[11:18] <Ben64> netbook won't run on two AA batteries, therefore r-?? wins
[11:18] <GabrialDestruir> The pi is.... 700mhz Arm11, 256MB of Ram.... and a seemingly decent GPU
[11:19] <SLFCore> I do understand the purpose of Raspberry Pi and its capabilities and also its cost
[11:19] <SLFCore> but
[11:19] <pixolin> sigh
[11:19] <GabrialDestruir> The Netbook comes with a battery though which depending on your netbook could last you 8 hours....
[11:19] <BCMM> Ben64: will the finished product still run on 3v?
[11:19] <Ben64> BCMM: i'd convert it to 5v
[11:19] <GabrialDestruir> With the pi, you spend extra for the battery which may not get you 8 hours
[11:19] <SLFCore> to keep it short
[11:19] <SLFCore> im from a third world country (India)
[11:20] <SLFCore> Electricity runs out ever 1 or 2 hours every day
[11:20] <SLFCore> Rolling Blackout
[11:20] <SLFCore> so it atleast needs to have a battery for offtime usage
[11:20] <BCMM> Ben64: i actually have no clue about how you transform a DC voltage like that - how efficient is it?

[11:20] <pixolin> is this the explanation why you only can troll for a limited time?
[11:20] <Ben64> BCMM: decent
[11:20] <SLFCore> I'm giving this Raspberry Pi to a school that is funded by general people
[11:20] <Ben64> BCMM: it gets worse the more power draw
[11:21] <GabrialDestruir> Do I need to keep up the comparisons?
[11:21] <SLFCore> I'm storing them with Khan Academy Videos on Learning various stuffs
[11:21] <GabrialDestruir> Oh wait last one.... Pi costs 35 dollars....
[11:21] <Ben64> charging my phone kills two AAs within an hour or so, but my phone takes 1A
[11:21] <GabrialDestruir> Netbook costs 300 or more
[11:22] <Ben64> r-?? takes 700ma maximum on model B, so it should last a lot longer
[11:22] <SLFCore> but there are many advantages of having a Netbook over a computer that has very limited storage and power supply, also its performance capabilities
[11:22] <pixolin> buy a netbook then ... and get a life.
[11:22] <SLFCore> i can run AutoCAD with ease on my 2 year old netbook

[12:06] <mjr> don't know if this is God's word but so it has been said
[12:07] <nuil> mjr: but, a standard usb port needs 500mA, 5V
[12:07] <mjr> No it doesn't. It needs 100mA. More than that is negotiable.

[13:06] <steve_rox> wish they would stop plastering the name "Zuckerberg" everywhere

[13:24] <SpeedEvil> In some aspects.

[14:08] <IT_Sean> heh
[14:09] <Simon-> Farnell UK have removed their bulk discount...
[14:09] <Simon-> this is going to get interesting when they try to overcharge me
[14:10] <Mazon> you could only buy 1 anyway
[14:11] <Mazon> so they will probably just dump your order
[14:11] <Simon-> I ordered 5
[14:12] <jojo> they dropped the price for 1 as well though

[14:15] <drazyl> Simon- it was made very clear for weeks that you could only order 1 so why try and order more?
[14:15] <Simon-> I didn't try to order more, I ordered more
[14:16] <Simon-> they're currently only allocating 1 item to it
[14:16] <drazyl> doesn't answer the question
[14:16] <chris_99> they'll reset it to 1
[14:16] <Simon-> but they appear to be trying to invoice me for 2 at ??24.55 instead of 5 at ??23.43
[14:16] <chris_99> they did that to me
[14:16] <Simon-> like I said, they can try
[14:16] <Simon-> drazyl: because I want more
[14:17] <rob_> cos you're a nobend
[14:17] <nuil> Simon-: we all wanted more than one
[14:17] <nuil> but we all orderd only one
[14:17] <drazyl> Simon- ahhh, I see, you are a self-entitled arse
[14:17] <Simon-> they're still taking orders for more than 1
[14:17] <drazyl> no sense of community some people
[14:17] <chris_99> you'll just get it reset to 1, i ordered 2 by accident
[14:18] <Simon-> not sure which part of giving them more money to preorder more of them you don't get
[14:18] <jojo> if they are being made to order now then it does not necessarily follow that ordering more is bad
[14:18] <Simon-> I'm not expecting them to all come out of the first 10k, and the rest of them are made on demand
[14:18] <drazyl> Simon- what part of "Today's sales are limited to one per customer" did you not get?
[14:19] <Simon-> drazyl: the part where that statement does not appear anywhere on the Farnell website

[14:19] <drazyl> and how did you know about the R-pi?
[14:19] <drazyl> sheesh
[14:19] <Simon-> the only T&Cs that matter are the ones on the Farnell website
[14:19] <IT_Sean> Actually, that is not true.
[14:19] <jojo> is sales the same as preorders ?
[14:20] * MadsRC (~mrc@ has joined #raspberrypi

[15:55] <DDave> bzw die bestellnr bitte
[15:55] <nuil> DDave: wie meinst du das?
[15:55] <DDave> http://de.farnell.com/raspberry-pi/raspbrry-pcba/sbc-raspberry-pi-model-b/dp/2081185
[15:55] <DDave> ist das die richtige "variante" ?
[15:55] <zgreg> ja, das m??sste die richtige "variante" sein
[15:55] <nuil> ich denk schon, sonst gibt es ja nix anderes
[15:55] <DDave> k
[15:56] <DDave> weil ich erinnere mich das es irgendwie 2 eintr?ge gab
[15:56] <zgreg> das andere teil ist angeblich nur der chip
[15:56] <DDave> genau desshalb :)
[15:56] <zgreg> jedenfalls wollte mir das ein mitarbeitet von farnell erz??hlen
[15:56] * Caver looks on blankly
[15:56] <DDave> also ist die bestellnr richtig ?
[15:56] <ironzorg> keep it english please
[15:56] <RaTTuS|BIG> google translate works with it
[15:56] <zgreg> ich kann es mir immer noch nicht vorstellen, dass die den chip einzeln verkaufen
[15:56] <swp_> Don't you hate it when that happens
[15:56] <zgreg> ja, das ist richtig
[15:56] <DDave> amen

[15:57] <DDave> really just to annoy you :P
[15:57] <Cemial|afk> does farnell already put taxes and stuff on top of it? on the german site of farnell it's 27 bucks, on the dutch one 33
[15:57] <ukscone> just got a reply fromliz
[15:57] <DDave> Cemial|afk: nope, taxes arent included
[15:57] * Cemial|afk is now known as Cemial
[15:57] <nuil> Cemial|afk: go to the "Kasse", about 9??? taxes
[15:57] <RaTTuS|BIG> whats Liz say
[15:58] <ukscone> they are still getting an insane amount of traffic so the forum can't be switched back on yet
[15:58] <Cemial> then why is the dutch version more expensive :/
[15:58] <RaTTuS|BIG> can they put the FAQ link back?
[15:58] <huene> oO still that much traffic? amazing
[15:58] <ironzorg> how is the wiki still holding though
[15:58] <RaTTuS|BIG> or do a 503 5-4 to the FAQ
[15:59] <ironzorg> it's not hosted on that big of a server
[15:59] <nuil> ironzorg: nobody knows about the wiki
[15:59] <ironzorg> I see
[16:00] <cuzzo> Is video encoding by Raspberry Pi hardware accelerated? Video decoding is hardware accelerated, right? I've seen it decode 1080p.
[16:00] <DDave> yeah, gpu
[16:02] <swp_> Problem with not havine the forum on, is there's a dilution of information happening.
[16:02] <swp_> Farnell have been promoting their own community, http://www.element14.com/community/groups/raspberry-pi?view=discussions

[16:10] <RaTTuS|BIG> http://www.mpegla.com/main/programs/M2/Documents/m2web_licenseterms.pdf
[16:10] <RaTTuS|BIG> $2.5
[16:10] <RaTTuS|BIG> oh
[16:11] <cousteau`uni> so, is the RPi already for sale? this Farnell page seems to sell it but I can't find the price... was the $25/35 target achieved?
[16:11] <huene> cousteau`uni: the rpi is already sold out. you can pre-order for the next batch
[16:11] <ReggieUK> $35 is the model B and yes they hit that price
[16:11] <huene> but production should be much faster now, with 2 licensed distributors
[16:11] <RaTTuS|BIG> cousteau`uni yes on teh price before tax and shipping etc
[16:11] <cousteau`uni> huene: oh, that went fast
[16:11] <ReggieUK> anything on top of that is between you and the seller and your local tax office
[16:12] <RaTTuS|BIG> mchou what where you asking
[16:12] <cousteau`uni> and congratulations for achieving it :)
[16:12] <RaTTuS|BIG> back after coffee
[16:12] <huene> well it was predictable, that it would go really fast
[16:12] <mchou> RaTTuS|BIG: Is the licensing available to end users
[16:12] <cousteau`uni> I thought it would take years to have something matching the original plans
[16:12] <mchou> RaTTuS|BIG: or has to be negotiated only thru foundation
[16:13] <zer0her0> cousteau`uni, why?
[16:13] <cousteau`uni> what's this $2.5 license thing? a fee for a particular MPEG2 library, or a license everybody has to pay to whoever invented the MPEG2 codec?
[16:14] <RaTTuS|BIG> it has to be done by the foundation as it requirs a lot of work [in licensing , make the binary blob work, contracts etc...]
[16:14] <ReggieUK> it's a fee for hardware decoding
[16:14] <cousteau`uni> zer0her0: pessimism I guess
[16:14] <mchou> RaTTuS|BIG: ok, so vaporware still
[16:14] <ReggieUK> mchou, what's vaporware?
[16:14] <zer0her0> cousteau`uni, ah, that would make sense. ;)
[16:14] <RaTTuS|BIG> no - hardware encoding has not been bought by the foundation
[16:14] <mchou> encoding
[16:15] <drazyl> not sure how it's vapourware when it has never been promised that I can recall
[16:15] <ReggieUK> drazyl, +1
[16:15] <mchou> for goodness sakes
[16:15] <cousteau`uni> zer0her0: actually, it was because of the "$100 Computer"
[16:15] <mchou> I didn't say the foundation mentioned it
[16:16] <cousteau`uni> how much did the $100 PCs end up costing when they were released?
[16:16] <zer0her0> oh the OLPC? well 1) that's what's his face being crazy 2) that has ALOT more parts to it
[16:16] <ReggieUK> so where does vaporware come into it?
[16:16] <mchou> RaTTuS|BIG mentioned licensing for encoding earlier
[16:16] <RaTTuS|BIG> http://www.mpegla.com/main/programs/M2/Pages/FAQ.aspx
[16:16] <mchou> and I asked him if was 'talk' or for real
[16:16] <mchou> 'talk'==VAPORWARE
[16:16] <RaTTuS|BIG> I said the hardware encoding was not being done
[16:17] <mchou> RaTTuS|BIG: my beef is not with you
[16:17] <drazyl> no, pre-announcement that is not fulfilled == vapourware

[16:32] * piofcube needs more coffee before his typing can improve
[16:32] <zgreg> zer0her0: not supported
[16:32] <mkopack> zer: o support for it built in

[16:36] <zer0her0> Caver, oh just wondering. i went to school with the guys that worked for On2 before they were acquired by google
[16:36] <cuzzo> zgreg, why would it be bad if it worked? Shouldn't it encode at the same quality on any processor and just take longer on a slower processor?
[16:36] <zgreg> cuzzo: these hardware accelerated encoders ar optimized for speed, not quality
[16:36] <ReggieUK> NoTW and sun did well out of IT
[16:36] <Caver> I've started to mentally blank out any "news" story that includes the word "Could" ....

[16:39] <piofcube> turn on a machine without an OS and it just sits there saying missing operating system...
[16:39] <jamesd256> no one is expecting anyone to write an OS, that would be insane
[16:39] <zgreg> ReggieUK: what's so funny about these alternatives presented? these are decent recommendations.
[16:39] <ReggieUK> it looks suspiciously like a router reference board
[16:39] <mkopack> cuzzo: There are some command line tools that will take a series of static images and turn them into a video clip

[16:40] <jamesd256> you can't be serious piofcube
[16:40] <mkopack> I don't remember the name of it off the tip of my tongue. I had to use it in my Robotics lab class last spring to take the static image dumps of my robots view of the world and turn it into an animated video
[16:40] <zgreg> cuzzo: hmm, why do you need to make a video out of it?
[16:40] <cuzzo> mkopack, well, I've written something that does exactly what I need. It works great on PC-based systems, but I want to switch to Raspberry Pi for a ton of reasons other than just cost.

[16:40] <piofcube> The R-Pi will have software... and it will eventually come with an SD card.... Right now, you download the software from the mirrors and put it on your own SD card.
[16:40] <jamesd256> you really think anyone is expected to have trouble putting linux on there?
[16:40] <mkopack> So it would take like 100 JPG images and turn it into a 30 second video clip
[16:40] <petschge> at 3 fps
[16:41] <jamesd256> there will be ready made images and step by step instructions
[16:41] <nuil> 4sec @ 25fps
[16:41] <piofcube> It's not because the students must write their own... that's laughable LOL
[16:41] <cuzzo> zgreg, because I need to play it seemlessly in VLC. I.E. no matter what I've done, in VLC if you change pretty much anythign from one video to the next (fps, resolution, codec) it will flicker between videos. It can't transition seemlessly. I need to be able to do that.

[16:43] <cuzzo> mchou, it works fine for me on PC based systems.
[16:43] <piofcube> jamesd256: Some people have contacted us asking how can they use the R-Pi if there's no software for it
[16:43] <cuzzo> mchou, what would you recommend?
[16:43] <zgreg> mchou: vlc actually supports openmax accelerated decoding :)
[16:43] <jamesd256> but who said there's no software for it?
[16:43] <piofcube> because of the BBC reports
[16:43] <mchou> cuzzo: recommend for what exactly?
[16:43] <drazyl> piofcube - where is that from?
[16:43] <zgreg> mchou: likely it doesn't work on the raspi as-is, but it should be possible to get it to work
[16:43] <jamesd256> it's documented that fedora will be endorsed and supplied
[16:44] <jamesd256> maybe our wires are crossed
[16:44] <jamesd256> i don't know what you're actually saying
[16:44] <nplus> finally got my delivery date! April 23 :)
[16:44] <zgreg> cuzzo: I don't understand your use case... you want a smooth picture slideshow, right? why a video?
[16:44] <piofcube> I was watching it on BBC news yesterday... They said (paraphrasing a very little bit) "The Rapberyy Pi doesn't come with software so the students can write their own"
[16:44] <mchou> zgreg: like I said, vlc has issues (some pretty serious)
[16:44] <zgreg> mchou: like?
[16:44] <jamesd256> yes, but as I said, no sane person would take 'software' to mean the operating system
[16:45] <jamesd256> you are reading it wrong
[16:45] <zleap> well it comes with tools to write software, so I call software designed to write software as software.
[16:45] <mchou> zgreg: like even upnp indexing
[16:45] * LWK_mac (~LWK@pdpc/supporter/student/lwk) Quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.)
[16:45] <drazyl> piofcube it's an odd way of phrasing it no matter what

[16:45] <zleap> this is what happens when non techies try and report on something technical
[16:45] <mchou> heck man
[16:45] <cuzzo> mchou, basically, I need VLC to seemlessly show a series of videos (i.e. no transition from one to the next). A lot of programs can do this, I've just been using VLC.
[16:46] <piofcube> But the reason why the R-Pi doesn't come with software right now is because you download it instead of having a disc/sd card shiped with it
[16:46] * Caver (~Caver@nat1.nipltd.com) Quit (Quit: Bye)
[16:46] <mchou> you playback media from a dlna server, that's when you'd care
[16:46] <mchou> wtf
[16:46] <zleap> piofcube, i wonder how many of therse people in the initial rush realise all this,
[16:46] <cuzzo> zgreg, most of the videos are... videos. But, some of them are just images that I turn into videos so that they display seemlessly (also I need to be able to fade in/out the image in transitions). I don't know how to do this without making the image into a video.
[16:46] <ReggieUK> zleap, that's what happens when non-techy people read/watch news articles about tech :D
[16:46] <drazyl> cuzzo - powerpoint
[16:47] <drazyl> :)
[16:47] <ReggieUK> ahahaha
[16:47] <zgreg> cuzzo: alright, I thought you were talking about pictures
[16:47] <zleap> yeah, i have been following the forums and reading the website (rasp pi one) for a while
[16:47] <jamesd256> ReggieUK, more to the point, it's what happens when people write simplified information to make it digestible to non-nerds
[16:47] <cuzzo> drazyl, seriously?
[16:47] <drazyl> cuzzo - no
[16:47] <zleap> jamesd256, yeah good poinbt
[16:47] <cuzzo> drazyl, ok. good [=
[16:48] <zgreg> cuzzo: it's probably a bad idea to do this on a small ARM computer, no matter if you have hardware accelerated encoding or not
[16:48] <ReggieUK> what do you propose they do instead?
[16:48] <zleap> I think Linux format in the UK has a big article on the raspberry pI
[16:48] <drazyl> cuzzo you probably should be encoding on a more suitable device and doing playback on the pi (if you insist on using a pi)
[16:48] <cuzzo> zgreg, really? It's a lot less computationally demanding than I think it might seem.
[16:48] <jamesd256> I don't propose it should be any different. What I propose is that when us nerds are together, we don't waste time mis-interpreting and debating it

[16:49] <cuzzo> drazyl, it needs to generate custom videos based on the location of the device. I.E. each device needs it's own set of image videos. So, it makes the most sense to do them on device.

[16:49] <jamesd256> anyone who will use one already knows they must download Linux. Problem solved.
[16:50] <drazyl> cuzzo the problem is, it doesn't because the pi is not geared up to be a video production device
[16:50] <jamesd256> people who don't at first realise this will quickly learn it. Again, no problem
[16:50] <Hourd> i'm waiting for the rage reviews of "i plugged it in and it wouldnt boot"
[16:50] <zgreg> cuzzo: re-encoding videos is very computationally intensive
[16:50] <drazyl> cuzzo it makes sense to either pre-encode, or to stream in the correct format from elsewhere
[16:50] <jamesd256> lol, Hourd
[16:50] <cuzzo> drazyl, what if I decoded the videos and displayed them frame by frame and only generated an image and showed that faded in/out frame by frame instead of generating a video out of the image and dispalying htat?
[16:50] <piofcube> jamesd256: look at the flack when people got development and education confused.. suddenly it was all about how the educational version of the R-Pi won't have a case... crazy LOL

[16:54] <zgreg> there's no X accel, plus the CPU is very weak

[16:55] <mchou> cuzzo: painful
[16:56] <mkopack> Reggie: Exactly??? look at the crazy stuff we were able to do back in the 8 bit days with WAY less than 1MB ram...
[16:56] <traeak> third comment on the liliputing article was awesome
[16:56] <zgreg> ReggieUK: yeah, but that's not always possible. today's websites are feature-laden and bloated and a full-featured browser will always be slow on the pi
[16:56] <zgreg> just to give one example
[16:56] <victhor> you can get away with midori but javascript was terrible on a cortex a8...
[16:56] <traeak> the rpi won't tolerate bloated api cobbling
[16:56] <mchou> jamesd256: dockstar is also way more functional
[16:56] <cuzzo> mchao, ok. I think it'd probably be ok for what I'm doing. It has 10 seconds launch Chrome and render the HTML. I think it could do that.
[16:56] <mkopack> We learned to be efficient, smart, and really learn the limitations of the hardware instead of just doing things in a sloppy manner to get it done...
[16:56] <ReggieUK> of course, I appreciate that, so there is also a lack of understanding (from some) that the pi simply won't do some stuff or if it does, it will do it slower
[16:57] <cuzzo> mchou, Although, I'm worried about the memory usage. Becasue I have to do all this in a Virtual Frame Buffer.
[16:57] <ReggieUK> 1/2 of it's moot though, licensing for hardware support of stuff has pretty much killed low end stuff
[16:57] <mchou> cuzzo: can't help u out there
[16:58] <ReggieUK> the gpu on the pi will simply eat video if the licenses were there, so it's not essentially a problem of the pi, it's a problem if licensing

[17:03] <ReggieUK> that's because content developers don't seem to give a crap about low end
[17:03] <jamesd256> but firefox is bloated
[17:04] <swiley> I really like how all that is handled in plan9 (with acme, 9p2000 and plumber) just completely blows html out of the water, especially for being built in the 80's
[17:04] <piofcube> I'm sure web kit could also be reduced a lot... Maybe we will start seeing more low resource stuff coming back
[17:05] <piofcube> maybe a gui/front end for gopher and archie ;-)
[17:06] <drazyl> the problem is that web 2.0/ajax has made it much more complicated than rendering stuff statically onto a page
[17:06] <abaxas> basically a supercomputer of the 80's to run a page with a few changing numbers
[17:06] <abaxas> stupid
[17:06] <zgreg> well, you can always disable javascript and even more, like images
[17:06] <swiley> maybe we could just do everything in markdown, and expect it to look crapy, and save typesetting for typesetting (troff pdf etc)
[17:06] <zgreg> but that's not a solution

[17:24] <mkopack> traeak: Ah, see, I put my order in around 11am yesterday and they charged me for it. but then when I looked around 3pm they didn't have the charge listed.

[17:24] <piofcube> my order total came to ??29.46 (inc taxes)
[17:24] <mkopack> People often part out pieces from broken laptops like that
[17:25] <traeak> piofcube: the US part has been a fiasco
[17:25] <SpeedEvil> Screens are unfortunately the most broken part

[17:25] <medelman> ok. Once I get the specific model number, I will have to look at that.
[17:25] <piofcube> traeak yeah :(
[17:25] <mkopack> traeak: Eh, I doubt it's going to be $20! Remember how small this thing is! Chances are they'll throw it into a USPS flat rate box and one that small is only like $3 to ship.
[17:25] <traeak> or just turnit into a built-in UPS computer
[17:25] <medelman> it is a few years old, so they shouldn't be overpriced.
[17:26] <SpeedEvil> mkopack: the charge is normally $20, for any part.
[17:26] <traeak> mkopack: hopefully they don't profiteer off S&H like a loto f companies do
[17:26] <SpeedEvil> mkopack: They may waive it, as they can simply ship the n000 to the US en-bloc, and seperate there.

[17:27] <traeak> again, we just wait some more
[17:27] <traeak> constant rpi theme :-p
[17:27] <mkopack> Speed: Exactly??? I could understand them charging the $20 for any orders being fulfilled out of that initial 10,000 that are going to the UK??? but afterwards, they're going to bulk ship directly from China to Newark USA...

[17:31] <piofcube> Well.. I hope RS have been watching Farnell etc all and learn from that before they start taking orders
[17:32] <medelman> did anyone else from the U.S. get an order in from Farnell Export before they added it to element 14 site? The order was confirmed with an estimated date of 4/23. Should I keep that order or try to preorder it through element14?

[17:47] <mkopack> EH, personally, I HATE trying to use virtual joysticks??? I need the physical feedback or my thumb starts to wander
[17:47] <ReggieUK> is that because of capacitive rather than resistive TS's

[17:55] <RaTTuS|BIG> Rm380z ... Oh my we had a couple in 6th form
[17:55] <mkopack> toxi: Probably will have some parts from different suppliers, so things like the Composite connector might be a different color, but otherwise, I would imagine it will be largely identical
[17:55] <ctyler> toxibuny: the first ones are from the same batch. Later ones will be manufactured by the distributors under license, so they may have minor cosmetic variations, I suppose
[17:55] <beardface> how long before the A boards start to go on sale?
[17:55] <mkopack> No idea. the .org site seemed to indicate they'd go to manufacture immediately, but no sign of them on either RS or Farnell's sites
[17:55] <zgreg> the A boards have become a lot more attractive now
[17:56] <toxibuny> Model a is the better bet nowadays, I reckon, yeah.
[17:56] <mkopack> more than they were, but I'd still prefer having the Ethernet jack and 2nd USB
[17:56] <traeak> hmm....may have to ultiately cancel my 'b' order and get an 'a' instead
[17:56] <beardface> i wonder how i can cancel my B pre order
[17:56] <traeak> if the order is cancellable
[17:57] <mkopack> why do you guys feel the A is the better choice now??
[17:57] <rm> it's not better
[17:57] <drazyl> depends on your requirements
[17:57] <zgreg> the model B is more versatile, yes, but the model A is not really any worse if you don't require ethernet, and it is a lot cheaper
[17:57] <rm> WTF do you do with a board with no LAN
[17:57] <beardface> I dont need ethernet
[17:57] <mkopack> I mean, maybe if you're planing to go wifi right away???.
[17:57] <traeak> mkopack: with the same amount of ram it's now a real acceptable option
[17:57] <abaxas> plug in a ?5 wifi adapter
[17:57] <beardface> using a wireless N usb dongle from DX (7 bucks) instead
[17:57] <rm> and 1 USB. plug in wifi and yay no more ports
[17:57] <beardface> +rm: usb hub
[17:57] <RaTTuS|BIG> plug into powered hum no worries
[17:57] <mkopack> but you're going to DEF need a hub unless you plan to use it via SSH
[17:57] <beardface> i'm building an internal usb hub into the raspberry pi
[17:58] <RaTTuS|BIG> hub*
[17:58] <rm> which costs maybe half of the $10 difference if not mroe
[17:58] <beardface> yay, more ports
[17:58] <traeak> ultimately i *hope* to go 100% bluetooth 3.0 + HS and tether
[17:58] <drazyl> rm many people will already have a hub tho
[17:58] <traeak> the HS part of bt3.0 allows 24MB/s transfers
[17:58] <drazyl> and if you are planning on using it as a media device, once it's up and running you don't need a keyboard on it
[17:58] <toxibuny> The model a has no Ethernet/hub chip in-between the gibbons and the outside world. There's been speculation that it'll allow the raspi to work in device mode.
[17:58] <Hourd> rm if its going to be used for something more embedded then no need for LAN
[17:58] <rm> bollocks
[17:59] <rm> about the device mode
[17:59] <drazyl> but. personally, the B meets my requirements more
[17:59] <traeak> obviously the 'b' model is more versatile
[17:59] <beardface> all B model adds is an internal usb hub and ether port
[17:59] <traeak> but for buying in bulk, etc the model 'a' is more attractive
[18:00] <beardface> you can make the A just as versatile

[18:01] <mkopack> drazyl: I wouldn't say that??? They'd have to buy hubs to hook KB+Mouse to them, and rely on wifi then...
[18:01] <drazyl> mkopack no need for them to be on any network if you are teaching programming on the device
[18:02] <RaTTuS|BIG> but if you have expressed your interesty then you may get an emaiul telling how to order tomorrow?

[18:02] <mkopack> Yes and no??? I kinda like being able to google for help to solving problems, and bring up documentation...

[18:17] <lars_t_h> mkopack, a USB screen could for ticket machines and like that - useable, but not really for anyting else
[18:17] <mkopack> And, keep in mind, some of these that do video over USB need drivers to work??? Which means getting them o work on Linux might be a challenge
[18:17] <piofcube> anyone here be interested in participating in regular and/or one podcasts? Promoting their R-Pi projects of support stuff (like 3D printing etc)? Won't be starting it for a while until I complete my studio bit in my workshop.
[18:17] <drazyl> well there's a cheap way to get VGA if it works with the Pi
[18:17] <piofcube> one-off
[18:18] <mkopack> draz: true??? That is one of the advantages. if you need VGA, these might be a solution for you
[18:18] <mkopack> Just gonna be funny seeing that big dock hooked up to such a small computer
[18:18] <drazyl> maybe you can open the case and put the pi inside :)

[18:19] <mkopack> I just desperately want to avoid the cable nightmare that was my C64 system!
[18:19] <lars_t_h> piofcube, you a thinking of making a on-line magazine like Full circle Magazine, http://fullcirclemagazine.org/issue-58/ ? they also has podcasts
[18:19] <lars_t_h> that mag is for free (free download)
[18:20] <piofcube> lars_t_h: We might do something like that as we progress. These podcasts will be published by Open Indie project Dot Org.
[18:20] <lars_t_h> and it is open source text and pictures
[18:20] <piofcube> Creative Commons licence
[18:21] <lars_t_h> piofcube, good idea, appox 210K is interested in buying a Pi, i had also read the number 2,1 mio
[18:21] <beardface> are they still giving any proceeds to charity?
[18:22] <beardface> or is that a statement they are wishing they never made
[18:22] <mkopack> beard? the Rpi Foundation?
[18:22] <beardface> yeah
[18:22] <mkopack> I think they need to pay off their personal investments in the project first....
[18:22] <drazyl> beardface the Foundation is a charity
[18:22] <beardface> clever
[18:22] <drazyl> no, that is their purpose
[18:23] <beardface> i know, its clever
[18:23] <beardface> and i do support it
[18:23] <mkopack> But they ARE still planning to do things like that. One thing they said in the BBC article is maybe set up $1000 prizes to students who come up with interesting unique software using the Pi.
[18:23] <beardface> can't wait for my son to play with the pi
[18:23] <Hourd> self sustaining (no need for future donations)
[18:23] <drazyl> not sure it is clever for a charitable organisation to be charity, seems common sense to me
[18:23] <beardface> i agree drazy1 it is clever
[18:24] <mkopack> They have a LOT of stuff left to accomplish between now and the new school year in the fall if they want to get these things into schools in time for the next year
[18:24] <Hourd> mkopack: they will be hard pushed
[18:24] <mkopack> yeah???
[18:24] <drazyl> at least they don't have to deal with manufacturing and order sizing
[18:25] <mkopack> Hopefully, once many of us start getting our hands on our units, things will progress quickly in terms of software support and documentation
[18:25] <drazyl> and order fulfillment
[18:25] <piofcube> mkopack very true and a great deal of it will be done by the likes of us... Doing projects which can then be used by others
[18:25] <mkopack> yup, that should take a lot of pressure off them to focus on the important things to them rather than trying to keep us happy
[18:25] <drazyl> Surely all it needs is a ZX81 emulator ported. It was good enough for me

[18:28] <lars_t_h> drazyl, there is probably an emulator package for Linux
[18:28] <drazyl> lars_t_h probably, so we're good to go
[18:28] <piofcube> I believe there's a few in the official repositories LOL
[18:29] <asm> http://store.cstick.com/
[18:29] <drazyl> then in a few years time they can migrate to a cp/m emulator and learn the joys of call 5
[18:29] <asm> another rpi hardware equivalent

[18:34] <asm> well, it has all the parts of a stand alone computer
[18:34] <drazyl> asm can you just attach a screen and keyboard or does it need to plug into a computer
[18:35] <unkle_george> Wait, I thought the model A has NO USB ports. Jus the microUSB which has no data pins connected.
[18:35] <drazyl> asm my tv has all the parts of a computer but I cant use it as one
[18:35] <asm> I think they have some custom sauce cloud stuff on it
[18:35] <mkopack> Was used to do testing and fault analysis on analog circuits??? You wrote your test programs in BASIC??? GD thing was the size of like 6 fridges and I used to have to wear ear plugs all day to keep from going deaf
[18:35] <unkle_george> So the only way to get data on/off would be to preload on the SDCard or the GPIOs
[18:35] <lars_t_h> traeak, renember theese (Debian) package names spectrum-x11 spectrum-svga "xspect is the X11 version of Spectemu which emulates the 48k ZX
[18:35] <lars_t_h> Spectrum, which uses the Z80 microprocessor."
[18:35] <mjr> unkle_george, nope, one is there
[18:35] <piofcube> I remember the TS80... never used them though
[18:35] <mkopack> Ah, the Trash 80.. :)

[18:36] <mjr> unkle_george, indeed, it's not meant to be useless ;)
[18:37] <traeak> btw one good project...a reimplementation of the ofl "robotwars" for rpi
[18:37] <mjr> basically you can make the A do anything the B does if you add a USB hub and USB ethernet (especially now that the A model's memory was bumped)
[18:37] <traeak> only open source one i've seen is java
[18:37] <traeak> my first programming was for my own arena bot
[18:37] <piofcube> traeak... not allowed to use a remote control on them? that would de fun
[18:38] <traeak> piofcube: it's ancient apple ][ software
[18:38] <jamesd256> is the A model less tall, now that there is no ethernet and only 1 usb?
[18:38] <jamesd256> that would be good
[18:38] <piofcube> LOL... I never used apple much ;-) still I wouldn't mind seeing robotwars.. the other kind
[18:38] <mjr> (though having the ethernet and enough hub for a keyboard/mouse combo in the same package in the B is useful for many uses)

[19:19] <RaYmAn> I think the general issue is that people expect them to act like a big corporation. They are a non-profit foundation that wants to get a cool, cheap device out to everyone who wants it :P
[19:19] <hotwings> rpi is a good example of how not to launch a product

[19:19] <mkopack> Hopefully after all the whining and such dies down they'll get some more appreciation for what they DID accomplish. Not saying they weren't partially to blame for the way things went on release day, but some of it was very much out of their control...
[19:19] <Caver> I'm confused by this launch ... there is a launch ... for the educational guys ... and thats later this year
[19:20] <octeris> RaYmAn: There's a difference between acting like a big corp and alienating your most interested parties/consumers.
[19:20] <hotwings> RaYmAn - in what way do you think people expect them to act like a big corporation?
[19:20] <Caver> this was a 1st chance for the geeks to get a board
[19:20] <traeak> the biggest deal here is that the rpi foundation decided to hand off everything having to do wiht manufacture, sales and distribution, and lets that very small gropu focus on what they do best: system design and publicity
[19:20] <Caver> a lot of people seem to be forgetting this and what the foundation is about
[19:20] <mkopack> Caver: Right??? this is just the "for you hobbyists to get these in your hands so you can make cool stuff for the children to use when they get their release in the summer/fall"
[19:20] <piofcube> Just wait until the R-Pis are delivered and some of the people in internetland start to complain they only received a PCB and not a computer
[19:20] <octeris> traeak: Frankly their publicity has been rather disappointing surrounding the release.
[19:20] <lars_t_h> childish stupid costumers
[19:21] <Caver> because people got excited?
[19:21] <octeris> Am I the only one who didn't get an email about the release?
[19:21] <traeak> octeris: considering they aren't paid to do this and there's not a lot of precedent for the rpi release

[19:22] <nuil> hotwings: i got one, 2am cet, 29.feb
[19:22] <lars_t_h> Caver, because they act like a child, especially those who writes hate mails
[19:22] <ReggieUK> ha, yeah, liz and pr are not bedfellows
[19:22] <octeris> IT_Sean: So we can refute what traeak said about publicity being one of their "best" attributes?

[19:22] <Caver> octeris, are those your comments?
[19:22] <Caver> are you a reporter?
[19:22] <octeris> what?
[19:23] <traeak> octeris: eben have done video interviews, showed up to conferences, etc
[19:23] <Caver> on reddit?
[19:23] <octeris> Caver: Does it matter?
[19:23] <traeak> those "publicity" things have been IMHO pretty good
[19:23] <Caver> I'll assume thats a yes then
[19:23] <octeris> Caver: It's a no. Again, does it matter?
[19:23] <hotwings> the launch was a complete mess.. but i dont think they need to be raked over the coals for it.. theyre doing ok so far for people stepping out into the world of business for the first time
[19:23] <Caver> no to both?
[19:23] <RaYmAn> tbh, compared to A LOT of product launches, they did quite well :P
[19:23] <IT_Sean> I'd agree completly with hotwings
[19:24] <traeak> hotwings: exactly. and IMHO the conditions surroudngin the RPI and its release are unique
[19:24] <IT_Sean> It is incredibly difficult bringing an entrely new product to market.
[19:24] <octeris> Caver: Correct. Again why does this matter? It has no bearing on me bringing discussion to this IRC and having an opinion.
[19:24] <RaYmAn> Sure, they didn't do as well as apple, but they aren't quite on the same level budget-wise ;)
[19:24] <traeak> who else has released anything like the rpi before? these guys have frankly done something pretty new and unique
[19:24] <traeak> yeah they screwed it up but who else out there has given an example of how to do it right?
[19:24] <RaYmAn> I guess if they had priced it at 100$, they could have hired PR guys and make sure it was available for everyone everywhere :P
[19:24] <octeris> Caver: You seem to want to attack me personally based either being a reporter or posting links to my own comments. Neither of which are true..

[19:25] <octeris> Caver: Glad to know people are respected here.
[19:25] <ReggieUK> Personally, i think the launch went just fine, they were never going to please everyone
[19:25] <Caver> ditto
[19:26] <Caver> there was no way in hell to walk it back down to the side it was meant to be
[19:26] <ReggieUK> in fact, they were *bound* to disappoint 90-95% of the people that had shown interest
[19:26] <RaYmAn> Didn't they sell out in like 30 minutes? (well, at least everything available to be bought)
[19:26] <octeris> ReggieUK: It's more the 'way' they disappointed them.
[19:26] <ReggieUK> whether it was the fubar of farnell or RS (not the foundations fault their distributors couldn't cope)
[19:26] * merlin1991 (~merlin@Maemo/community/cssu/merlin1991) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[19:26] <Caver> and oh ... they put their own houses up for mortgage to come up with the manufactuing capital ... doesn't that mean they can do what the hell they like with the sales process?
[19:26] <octeris> ReggieUK: And by that I do not mean product unavailability.
[19:26] <ReggieUK> or the fact that most people were not going to get a pi yesterday
[19:27] <ReggieUK> most people bitched about late shipping dates
[19:27] <RaYmAn> I suspect everyone including RPI foundation was quite surprised at just exactly how much interest there was, heh
[19:27] <ReggieUK> some bitched about the $20 handling fee on farnell
[19:27] <octeris> RaYmAn: With a 100K+ mailing list that was never even notified?
[19:27] <octeris> RaYmAn: Yeah right.
[19:27] <Caver> yup ... sounds like farnell have screwed people over there
[19:27] <ReggieUK> I think they were highly aware of the interest
[19:28] <ReggieUK> hence going to a static page and buggering off down the pub after they'd watched all teh action from twitter
[19:28] <mkopack> They're going back on that $20 shipping fee??? link to the notice from Farnell / Element14 was posted in here earlier
[19:28] <traeak> ReggieUK: i was one of those...and the "fee" was a computer mistake which has been rectified
[19:28] <Caver> oh right
[19:28] <mkopack> traeak: have you checked your order status? Mine is still showing the fee...
[19:28] <traeak> life goes on guys :-p
[19:28] <ReggieUK> hmmmn, I do't necessarily think that it was a 'mistake' but I accept that they rectified the situation :)
[19:29] <traeak> mkopack: yeah, i ordered after they fixed the product entry so i only show the $35
[19:29] <ReggieUK> that is farnells usual policy for non-stocked items that are in stock in another region
[19:29] <octeris> traeak: Sure but we're not here to discuss idioms. lol

[19:31] <mkopack> search for raspberry-pi
[19:32] <Caver> I think farnell screwed up totally, and the foundation reminded them of the rules ... so they've have to unpick the situation, by splitting them into one from the original batch, and rest from later batches

[19:45] <DaQatz> ground service? From the UK. That should be interesting.
[19:45] <hotwings> you can calculate your shipping charge using the ship from zipcode 29341, and package dimensions 9 x 6 x 3 inches
[19:45] <mkopack> Obviously, will be better when you can order multiples and group the shipping together

[19:45] <IT_Sean> What it really comes down to is: If you want your package quickly, but want it delivered by a poo flinging monkey, use FexEx or UPS. If you want it delivered professionally, and don't mind wating 23 months for it, use USPS.
[19:45] <Caver> across canada, across the poles, via russia ... mm might be possible
[19:46] <Caver> 6 months I reckon
[19:46] <hotwings> us newark.com orders ship from zipcode 29341, not the uk.
[19:46] <piofcube> DaQatz: Delivered by Spongbob Squarepants... He can walk on land while under water LOL
[19:46] <DaQatz> USPS is any BUT professional...
[19:46] <ReggieUK> uk shipping to uk is pretty cheap i think
[19:46] <hotwings> there is no usps option.. its either ups or fedex from newark.com
[19:46] <mkopack> damn civil servants.
[19:46] <Caver> yup mine got costed at ??26.50
[19:46] <hotwings> all this info came directly from newark just now (i called)
[19:46] <IT_Sean> UPS / FedEx Ground service from the UK to the US is still sent via air. It's just a question of if it comes into your local airport (air service) or KEWR (ground service) and goes via truck from there.

[19:59] <hotwings> too much warm gulf air.. i guess not though
[19:59] <lars_t_h> octeris, understand that, but it is the "to get here" i don't understand
[19:59] <mkopack> If the jet stream dips down enough, and if there's enough moisture in the air from the gulf then we can get a decent storm here.
[19:59] <octeris> lars_t_h: To arrive from the UK, to be shipped to my house.
[19:59] <xlq> lars_t_h: for it to be delivered
[19:59] <mkopack> just doesn't happen very often??? usually like once every 2-3 years we'll get some??? often when we do get it, it's melted the next day

[20:01] <lars_t_h> octeris, that is easy, production of pi computers takes time to do, especially if you are in the end of a very long queue of costumers
[20:02] <oldtopman> Just saying, newark no longaer has a $20 handling fee (USA)
[20:02] <mkopack> old Yup, we know. They will charge you for shipping however
[20:02] <octeris> lars_t_h: I know I was just making jokes about how "normal people" who comment on the RasPi ask those types of questions.
[20:03] <oldtopman> mkopack: Nope.
[20:03] <xlq> Typically everything they've bought will have been mass produced and they aren't aware of the concept of scarcity.
[20:03] * oldtopman is also in the second batch
[20:04] <mkopack> there are SO many people who tried to get in on the RPi who just did ZERO research and don't really know what it is they're buying??? Many are going to be pretty surprised when they find out???. find out that it can't run windows, or Android, that it's slower than their smartphone, that it won't do Flash, that it doesn't come with the power supply, etc???..
[20:04] <hotwings> i have a question about that newark order page for the rpi... the model number is listed as: RASPBRRY-PCBA .. i assume that means model A.. then the description says:
[20:04] <hotwings> Features: 256Mb RAM, ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz MPU, VideoCore IV GPU, 2 USB, Ethernet port
[20:04] <mkopack> all they heard was "$25/35 computer!" and said "MUST BUY!"
[20:05] <hotwings> 256MB is/was model A, but ethernet is model B.. so is RASPBRRY-PCBA model A or model B ?!
[20:05] <xlq> mkopack: But if it can't run Windows or Flash it's not a computer...
[20:05] <mkopack> hot: No, it's the B. They just chose a REALLY unfortunate model number for the page
[20:05] <traeak> mkopack: turn it around on ebay they will
[20:05] <lars_t_h> it can also be bureaucracy, tax on goods, xlg, octeris
[20:05] <hotwings> mkopack - has someone confirmed this with newark or do i need to call them again? :)
[20:05] <mkopack> They probably got it confused when the foundation told them there were A and B models and the B was coming out first...
[20:06] <mkopack> I'm going based on the specs??? and the fact that there's no A model unit anywhere on their site...
[20:06] <mkopack> But feel free to call!

[20:15] <Gadget-Mac> http://elinux.org/RPi_Shipping
[20:15] <mkopack> Probably should add a column about where you ordered from (which site/link/company)

[20:16] <IT_Sean> I got up at 6am EST to see if i could still order one, and was slightly cross to discover they had sold out. Now, looking at all the ordering touble, i'm rather glad i missed the 1st batch. I'm going to wait for a subsequent run to order mine.
[20:16] <Gadget-Mac> Updated
[20:17] <mkopack> Sean: No such thing as "subsequent run"???. it's continuous production. the longer you wait, the farther back in the queue you're going to be.
[20:17] <nuil> Gadget-Mac: thanks
[20:17] <IT_Sean> mkopack: i'm going to wait for the massive demand to flatten a bit. I don't mind waiting. I'm in no great hurry to get one.
[20:17] <swiley> mkopack: it wasn't too bad, it's just when you live in EST and get up at 6utc you make everything out to be really bad

[20:28] <Hourd> i have indeed
[20:29] <IT_Sean> You will be receiving a model b then
[20:29] <Hourd> got in pretty early
[20:29] <IT_Sean> If you actually read the website at all, you would have seen that the ONLY thing out now is the B, and that the A will be coming later.

[20:35] <mkopack> "Thank you for joining the Raspberry Pi revolution and registering your interest in Raspberry Pi???s Model B board from RS Components.
[20:35] <mkopack> We have received extraordinary levels of demand for this product. To help ensure as many people as possible can experience the Raspberry Pi concept, we are limiting boards to one per customer, and we will send you further information on your request in the next seven days. Once we receive the boards into stock, they will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis, in order of when requests were received.
[20:35] <mkopack> Thank you for your patience; we will be in touch as soon as possible with more details."
[20:36] <rm> okay
[20:36] <mkopack> So then the question becomes, are they going to jerk me around because I'm in the USA ?
[20:36] <rm> now where's mine
[20:36] <cousteau> rm, oh, didn't think about it... is "BCM2835" the base64 encoding of "R-Pi"?
[20:36] <rm> mkopack, btw when have you signed up with RS?
[20:36] <mkopack> cousteau: That's the CPU used on the RPi
[20:36] <rm> on the launch day?
[20:36] <haltdef> I wonder if first come first serve means first to act on any instructions or first to have registered interest
[20:36] <mkopack> rm: I filled out that interest form at like 0601 GMT release day
[20:36] <cousteau> ok... however the board is not just the CPU
[20:37] <rm> mkopack, ok, about the same here
[20:37] <nuil> mkopack: yeap
[20:37] <cousteau> it's like buying an FPGA or buying a board with an FPGA
[20:37] <mkopack> "In order of when requests were received" so I assume the time you put in that you were interested
[20:37] <cousteau> but ok, thanks rm :)
[20:37] <rm> cousteau, point is, they redirect you to that b/s page on all searches for R Pi
[20:37] <rm> but you can do a detour and search for the CPU name
[20:37] <rm> and since no other page on their shop contains that CPU name, you arrive directly at the product page for R Pi
[20:37] <rm> not a b/s register interest page

[20:55] <GabrialDestruir> everyone else starts at April 16 and goes from there
[20:57] <mkopack> Hotwing: Ok, so we're probably in the same production batch
[20:57] <Hexxeh> March 12th here
[20:57] <GabrialDestruir> There were people saying they had friends who ordered later than them and are instead supposedly getting dates like March 23 and stuff
[20:57] <Hexxeh> So 13 days
[20:57] <RaYmAn> Hexxeh: Lucky bastard ;)
[20:57] <hotwings> mkopack - what does your shipping method say? and which did you select from the ordering page?
[20:57] <mkopack> at this point, I don't think ANY date is really a good fixed one
[20:57] <Hexxeh> Up at 6AM, hammered the site solidly until 8AM when I finally got one
[20:58] <mkopack> I just said "best ground"
[20:58] <GabrialDestruir> Apparently there's a belief that they're allocating for Pi for UK first
[20:58] <DaQatz> march 12th???
[20:58] <GabrialDestruir> then the rest of the world
[20:58] <hotwings> i picked 'standard delivery ground service' or whatever
[20:58] <mkopack> yeah, same here
[20:58] <hotwings> my invoice says it will be shipped at UPS 2nd day air at ground rate
[20:58] <Hexxeh> GabrialDestruir: well people in the UK will probably get them first because they've being shipped here first
[20:58] <mkopack> I figure NJ to Altlanta isn't that far

[20:59] <Hexxeh> i'd hazard a guess they didn't start selling many until about 8am because of site issues
[20:59] <GabrialDestruir> When did you order yours exactly?
[20:59] <Hexxeh> then they probably burned through tens of thousands within an hour
[20:59] <pdp7> fwiwm, my order with Newark element14 made Feb-29 4m US CST shows March-13 expected ship date in 'My Account'. Not sure how realistic that is though.
[21:00] <pdp7> *fwiw

[21:01] <DaQatz> All first batch US folk get no earlier then April 16th it seems
[21:01] <Hexxeh> Tbf I suspect they're not going to ship any of the first batch outside of the UK
[21:01] <Hexxeh> Doesn't make sense
[21:01] <GabrialDestruir> So it's going to take over a month to ship it?
[21:02] <GabrialDestruir> Highly doubtful.
[21:02] <Hexxeh> Might as well wait for next ones to run off the line in China, then ship those directly to the US
[21:02] <GabrialDestruir> It sounds like first batch is going straight to UK
[21:02] <mkopack> Hexx: I believe that's what they're doing actualy
[21:02] <GabrialDestruir> then farnell's batch will go to others
[21:02] <Hexxeh> Pretty much
[21:02] <GabrialDestruir> Personally I think that's BS .-.
[21:03] <Hexxeh> Now you know how the UK gets treated with US product launches..! :P
[21:03] <Hexxeh> We get stuff months later as a general rule

[21:28] <rely> wow, i'm getting some really conflicting information from Newark
[21:28] <mdavey> Liz has confirmed after RS has shipped its current allocation, next batches due in 4-6 weeks
[21:28] <chris_99> do we know when RS are going to release 'em
[21:29] <unkle_george> possible. Teaching programming without some help from and IDE ... pretty difficult
[21:29] <rely> cool, I think newark is all manner of confused, My order shows a shiop date of may 10th. but on the product page it lists april 3rd. Also they got rid of the 20$fee
[21:29] <des2> How could RS ship its current allocation ?
[21:29] <unkle_george> is Geany integrated with GDB?
[21:30] <Ben64> put them into boxes and send them places
[21:30] <swiley> oh my gosh, teaching programing in an ide? what kind of teacher are you?
[21:30] <xlq> An IDEot :)
[21:30] <Henchman21> vi-ide
[21:30] <Aethaeryn> I wonder what the minimum system requirements for emacs are
[21:30] <swiley> the only ide a real programer might use is acme, and that's not an ide
[21:31] <cousteau> what's wrong with tteaching programming on an IDE?
[21:31] <chris_99> thats rather untrue swiley
[21:31] <cousteau> also, does Geany count as an IDE?
[21:31] <xlq> Aethaeryn: Eight Megabytes And Craploads of Swap
[21:31] <swiley> really unix is enough of an die (integrated c plus shell plus debugger)
[21:31] <swiley> ^ide
[21:31] <sanitypassing> xlq: Exactly.
[21:32] <xlq> cousteau: My friend "learnt" Java using the BlueJ IDE. Too complicated. He hadn't a clue how to even run his program outside the IDE. Didn't really understand the entry point.
[21:32] <xlq> Maybe that's just the teaching though.
[21:32] <Aethaeryn> xlq: Actually, it seems like it's closer to 25 MB by my estimation
[21:32] <cousteau> well, the point about programming is programming, not compiling
[21:32] <swiley> I learned c with notepad a dosprompt and mingw
[21:33] <cousteau> compiling is also a good thing to know, but not essential when most IDEs do that for you
[21:33] <mdavey> chris_99: currently, they think towards the end of next week.
[21:33] <Aethaeryn> xlq: The problem with IDEs is that they do too much for you, yes.
[21:33] <des2> Notepad!
[21:33] <swiley> I've always hated how ides way overcomplicate everything
[21:33] <lars_t_h> unkle_george, you should have a look at Code::Blocks, a fine IDE for doing C and C++ programming, may also Python i can't renember
[21:33] <unkle_george> A little 'help' on syntax from an IDE goes a long ways
[21:33] <rely> Newark just told me how big the back log is lol.
[21:33] <Aethaeryn> The problem with Java is the amount of repetition lends itself toward people wanting it automated.
[21:33] <chris_99> aha cheers mdavey
[21:33] <cousteau> notepad is like the "Nope!" of programming
[21:33] <xlq> I learnt x86 assembly using notepad2 and nasm.
[21:33] <des2> How big is the back log rely ?
[21:33] <xlq> My first language was QBASIC, which had an IDE.. kind of :)
[21:33] <cousteau> (along with Leafpad, let's be fair)
[21:33] <rely> Looks like they have 12k units on back log, from yesterday alone.
[21:33] <Aethaeryn> public class Hello { public static void main(String args[]) { System.out.println("Hello world!"); } }
[21:33] <sanitypassing> IDEs are overrated. Sure, the features are nice, but do you really need them?
[21:33] <Aethaeryn> I can't fault people for wanting an IDE when that's the language
[21:34] <hotwings> i know rpi has a kernel git repo.. but that doesnt mean theyre up-to-date with the kernel itself
[21:34] <unkle_george> lars_t_h: code blocks::blocks would be perfect for a student
[21:34] <swiley> sometimes people shove the tools into the ide and force you to use them :/ that sucks
[21:34] <xlq> hotwings: Merge and see if it crashes ^_^
[21:34] <hotwings> lol
[21:35] <lars_t_h> cousteau, it is leraning the wrong way to depend on and IDE for compilng, they should be able to do that fram a command line first
[21:35] <Aethaeryn> nano is perfect for a student, since it encourages them to learn how to do things with the individual, independent CLI programs. Once it gets too complex, something like vi or emacs is sufficient.
[21:35] <lars_t_h> and then go to the IDE later
[21:35] <mdavey> rely: Presumably that is just for Newark US?
[21:35] <lars_t_h> *learning is was
[21:35] <unkle_george> Eclipse: Who calls this function -- uh Ctrl-G .. ok. Cmdline + vim: grep .. grep ... grep

[21:35] <xlq> except emacs users :)
[21:35] <ironzorg> prolly
[21:35] <des2> As long as they don't have to use ed
[21:36] <Aethaeryn> echo is good enough for anyone
[21:36] <sanitypassing> god damn, Atom motherboards are expensive.
[21:36] <Aethaeryn> echo "print 'hello world'" > hello.py
[21:36] <des2> The new Intel Atom motherboard is $85 US
[21:36] <rely> mdavey: i think so yes
[21:36] <unkle_george> Any board with more ram or faster CPU is $200+
[21:36] * lars_t_h has a keyboard that is going into a very low orbit around earth very soon - grrrr
[21:36] <cousteau> lars_t_h, well, among other things Geany has a built-in command line, which could be used by the teacher to say "You can also do it like this. In fact we're going to compile a program linking to -lm so that you have to use it."
[21:36] <hotwings> i use nano all the time.. works fine
[21:36] <swiley> [sam vim emacs ed] + [sh csh bash rc] + [kenc gcc clang] = one true ide
[21:36] <Aethaeryn> echo -ne "def main():\n\tprint 'even newlines work'\n\nmain()"
[21:36] <sanitypassing> hotwings: heh, nano
[21:36] <cousteau> hotwings, at least nano has syntax highlighting
[21:36] <Aethaeryn> you really don't need an editor
[21:37] <ironzorg> in fact emacs *is* an ide
[21:37] <mdavey> so worldwide preorders could easilly be 6x that
[21:37] <hotwings> cousteau - yup
[21:37] <sanitypassing> ironzorg: Emacs is more of an operating system than an IDE
[21:37] <Aethaeryn> ironzorg: emacs is like an IDE, but it doesn't get in the way.
[21:37] <mdavey> across RS and Premier Element 14
[21:37] <hotwings> bash + nano works fine for me
[21:37] <Aethaeryn> It just happens to have IDE features because someone coded them up in elisp once
[21:37] <Aethaeryn> Extensible Macros

[21:37] <unkle_george> Geany looks quite nice too, but doesn't look like it integrates GDB... I guess ok for perl/python etc
[21:37] <traeak> 1337 users go with vim :-p
[21:37] <cousteau> Aethaeryn, too complicated, use `cat >program.py` and end with ^D
[21:37] <ironzorg> cat << EOF > main.c
[21:37] <ironzorg> realmen.jpg
[21:38] <lars_t_h> cousteau, i like Geany i use it then i am doing c programming = often, because i am creating a compiler
[21:38] <Aethaeryn> cousteau: it needs to be done in one line of bash though
[21:38] <swiley> oh yea gdb is really important too
[21:38] <Aethaeryn> Plus if you need to edit, just press UP and use your history
[21:38] <cousteau> Aethaeryn, oic
[21:38] <cousteau> no
[21:38] <cousteau> you use sed
[21:38] <cousteau> sed -i
[21:38] <traeak> swiley: unit tests + printf gets more mileage from me
[21:39] <cousteau> hmm, what channel was this again? the amount of off-topic looks like ##programming
[21:39] <xlq> unkle_george: My Athlon X2 seems to be only about 10x faster than the R-pi's CPU. Perhaps I'm misinterpreting something.

[21:40] <swiley> treak: haha
[21:40] <sanitypassing> I've discovered an AM3 motherboard that uses DDR2 RAM. O_o
[21:41] <des2> cousteau the discussion is how suitable RPI is to learn programming and what programming tools to use on it.
[21:41] <Aethaeryn> cousteau: We can't program #raspberrypi because no one has one yet
[21:41] <Aethaeryn> We were talking about what can run on it.
[21:41] <cousteau> des2, oooh
[21:41] <Aethaeryn> e.g. what editors
[21:41] <unkle_george> xlq: what benchmark are you running?
[21:41] <xlq> unkle_george: openssl speed
[21:41] <sanitypassing> You can use cat
[21:41] <sanitypassing> and do it by hand
[21:41] <cousteau> then... I say we (you) try to put Eclipse on it
[21:41] <Aethaeryn> ugh
[21:41] <cousteau> if it's able to run Quake it better be able to run Eclipse
[21:41] <Aethaeryn> cousteau: no
[21:41] <ironzorg> wtf

[21:42] <Aethaeryn> I had a comp sci class that used Eclipse on an old machine (which presumably was faster than #raspberrypi ) and it was sloooooooooooow
[21:42] <hotwings> rpi install better come with bash and not dash
[21:42] <sanitypassing> seriously, it's Java. Horribly slow
[21:42] <Aethaeryn> It took like 10 minutes to launch
[21:42] <ironzorg> why would you want to run eclipse on an embed machine
[21:42] <cousteau> also, isn't Java some sort of ARM-oriented thing? shouldn't it run like super fast on ARM?
[21:42] <sanitypassing> cousteau: lolno
[21:42] <cousteau> damn
[21:42] <sanitypassing> Java is a virtual machine
[21:42] <xlq> type "cat", press enter, press escape, type "[32mHello, world!" and press enter ;)
[21:42] <sanitypassing> it's bytecode, interpreted at runtime
[21:42] <OneFix_Work> So, why are some people still getting dates like April 3rd for delivery, while some of us are seeing May 10th from the same company?
[21:42] <sanitypassing> which is why it's so goddamned slow
[21:42] <cousteau> sanitypassing, I heard somewhere that it somehow had some sort of ARM bytecode
[21:43] <sanitypassing> cousteau: not that I've heard of
[21:43] <des2> Just try to keep the RPI from paging out to disk.
[21:43] <cousteau> i.e. that some ARM processors could directly run Java... or something like that
[21:43] <xlq> cousteau: See: Jazelle
[21:43] <hotwings> OneFix_Work - because the april 3rd guys are lying to you
[21:43] <sanitypassing> I'm sure the Java VM has been ported over to ARM, but I doubt that it can compile to a native ARM executable
[21:43] <sanitypassing> that's just not how Java works
[21:43] <unkle_george> xlq: http://pastebin.com/4i1qZidk
[21:43] <cousteau> also, I don't think my cellphone runs a pretty heavy VM and it runs Java (MicroEdition)
[21:43] <sanitypassing> it compiles to a specific set of bytecode, which is then in turn executed by the Java virtual machine
[21:44] <lars_t_h> sanitypassing, Java, Mono (.NET CLR), and other VMs should be forbidden on ressource constrained devices like the Pi
[21:44] <des2> How much memory does your cellphone have ?
[21:44] <ironzorg> xlq: "an then type reset"
[21:44] <cousteau> xlq, thanks, that's what I was talking about, I think
[21:44] <sanitypassing> lars_t_h: I wouldn't say forbidden, but rather discouraged.
[21:44] <OneFix_Work> hotwings: Umh, I read both emails...
[21:44] <sanitypassing> VM's aren't bad. Take a look at JavaScript. V8 is pretty damn fast.

[21:45] <xlq> cousteau: One learns something new every day :)
[21:45] <sanitypassing> lars_t_h: I wouldn't either, honestly.
[21:45] <Aethaeryn> It's okay, common lisp is pretty fast.
[21:45] <piofcube> some ARM processors execute java bytecode in ahrdware
[21:46] <OneFix_Work> hotwings: Yea, but you can't put it on the site that it links to...
[21:46] * issue- (~quassel@178-190-23-251.adsl.highway.telekom.at) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[21:46] <sanitypassing> as much as I love JavaScript (node), Python and Ruby, they just aren't really well suited for a low-resource environment
[21:46] <hotwings> you said you saw emails, not webpages
[21:46] <xlq> Lua is a bit better suited.
[21:46] <hotwings> so... were you looking at an email, or were you looking at a webpage?
[21:46] <OneFix_Work> hotwings: I'm not saying that I believe it, I'm just saying that I'm not seeing consistency.
[21:46] <sanitypassing> xlq: Thats' true, but Lua doesn't have the same level power that other languages, such as Python have.
[21:46] <cousteau> and Javascript???1??
[21:47] <lars_t_h> Aethaeryn, Common Lisp <3
[21:47] <sanitypassing> cousteau: D'you have a problem with JavaScript?
[21:47] <OneFix_Work> hotwings: The email said it and linked to the company's web page that said it.
[21:47] <xlq> sanitypassing: It's surprisingly flexible for such a simple language.
[21:47] <swiley> gah we have a nice machine, why the heck do we want to run things in a vm!?!
[21:47] <xlq> But yeah, Lua has fewer special keystroke-saving syntax features.
[21:47] <sanitypassing> xlq: that's true, but it has a limited standard library, if I recall it correctly
[21:47] <OneFix_Work> hotwings: I know it wasn't "fake"...it is, however, possible that it was wrong.
[21:47] <cousteau> sanitypassing, well, I see it getting shoved into many things other than web pages...
[21:47] <xlq> swiley: Because it's faster than running dynamically typed programs without a VM?
[21:48] <swiley> is this why we "need" 700mhz cpu clock?
[21:48] <sanitypassing> cousteau: hey, node is pretty kick-ass.
[21:48] <lars_t_h> Aethaeryn, common LISP compilers make very fast native code
[21:48] <cousteau> also, yes, it doesn't have classes nor operator overloading. Duh.
[21:48] <sanitypassing> other than that, and the browser, I'd say it is pretty overused though
[21:48] <swiley> xlq do we really need dynamic typing then?
[21:48] <sanitypassing> cousteau: You don't need classes.
[21:48] <OneFix_Work> hotwings: I'm also wondering if they are simply cleaning out the orders with quantity > 1
[21:48] <lars_t_h> someone says somwhere between C and C++
[21:48] <sanitypassing> and you definitely don't need operator overloading
[21:48] <xlq> sanitypassing: Yes, it takes the C approach. In fact, with a couple of exceptions, Lua only provides things that can be implemented with nothing more than the standard C library.
[21:48] <xlq> swiley: No :)
[21:48] <Aethaeryn> lars_t_h: you'd have to use a different compiler for ARM, though, wouldn't you?
[21:48] <cousteau> yes I do! classes pleaaase!!!
[21:48] <sanitypassing> cousteau: GO BACK TO YOUR SILLY OBJECT ORIENTED SILLY-NESS.
[21:49] <cousteau> and Python has list comprehensions!!!
[21:49] <sanitypassing> Seriously though, if needed, pretty much all of those features can be emulated with prototypal programming
[21:49] <xlq> sanitypassing: No, it's CLOS or bust :)
[21:49] <sanitypassing> var x = { }; There's your object right there.
[21:49] <xlq> or in Lua, local x = { }; -- hmm, looks similar :)
[21:49] <lars_t_h> Aethaeryn, the compiler is part of the Comonnon Lisp implementation, you know
[21:50] <sanitypassing> var x = function() { this.sayHello = function() { console.log("Hello"); } }; There is a "class" with a "method" right there.

[21:51] <xlq> Other compiled languages whose main implementations don't compile to C: Haskell, OCaml, ...
[21:51] <sanitypassing> There is a reason why everything compiles to C. When done correctly, it's damn fast

[21:54] <Aethaeryn> xlq: I'm not sure how Haskell benchmarks
[21:54] <mjr> "GHC compiles Haskell code either directly to native code or using LLVM as a back-end. GHC can also generate C code as an intermediate target for porting to new platforms. The interactive environment compiles Haskell to bytecode, and supports execution of mixed bytecode/compiled programs."
[21:54] <mjr> so yes, it _can_ generate C code, though it's not the main operating mode

[22:03] <rm> no
[22:03] <GabrialDestruir> Maybe they had a budget margin AND decided it'd be easier to dev for the device if it has the same ram as b
[22:03] <DaQatz> little by default

[22:06] <mkopack> Gadget: Always WERE usig the same pcb, just different components o it
[22:06] <lars_t_h> xlq, if we know it is endaanness, and the driver is made for big -endian, the problem could be fixed
[22:06] <Gadget-Mac> mkopack: So for the single usb port, there are some solder bridges then
[22:07] <mjr> mkopack, so does the A just have some jump wires over the space where the hub/ethernet chip would be?

[22:36] <Lerc> in a nutshell cortex-a8 and Atom about the same performance by clock. Arm much better at performance per watt, Atom better at top speed due to higher clock rate.
[22:37] <Lerc> die size and power consumption will allow Arm to increase cores better than Atom.

[22:43] <rm> by "on par" you probably mean "only 3x more powerhungry, not 10x"
[22:43] <unkle_george> 1:1 by that article... dated last year
[22:43] <unkle_george> though I find that little hard to believe.
[22:44] <rm> very unlikely
[22:44] <rm> the x86 instruction set won't let it achieve the same efficiency

[22:44] <unkle_george> Intel can 'die shrink' to get lower power too
[22:44] <crackm> they did in fact unkle_george -> result Ivy bridge
[22:44] <SpeedEvil> Die shrink doesn't work if you're at the same pitch as your competitors.
[22:44] <unkle_george> no... all the extra instruction decode logic burns power
[22:44] <SpeedEvil> Well - it does.
[22:45] <SpeedEvil> If you spend an extra billion or ten on a new fab.
[22:46] <unkle_george> ok, thanks for the ivy bridge info. I can see Intel being ahead on the die shrink for quite a while with the desktop /server market paying the bill
[22:47] <crackm> well the current genration of ARM's COrtex-A15 are 22nm aswell ..
[22:48] <unkle_george> That's what I want in my Pi2.. A15

[23:11] <rm> unkle_george, I, for one, understand your question :p but don't know
[23:11] <crackm> it has no other way around it xlq both cpu & gpu have not enough horsepower for other solution
[23:12] <unkle_george> yeah... must be via a binary blob .lib + c headers?
[23:12] <crackm> openmax is used
[23:13] <unkle_george> OK ... so how do I compile Gstreamer/vlc/mplayer etc to take advantage of it...
[23:14] <unkle_george> or do they pick it up automatically through the driver stack. Hmmmm
[23:14] <unkle_george> The more I learn about Linux the dumber I get...
[23:14] <crackm> as far I remember from forum its not automatic

[23:29] <cjbaird> The proprietary stuff makes me worry it'll be a repeat of the Openmoko's "Glamo" debarcle.. They were conned into using NDA'd hardware, with the promises of working APIs and stacks they could use with the Linux firmware. Bugs and such were found and reported... and ?TI didn't do anything about it. No updates or anything, as FIC were too small-time-small-profit to worry about...

[23:46] <crackm> ukscone told something regaring that topic
