[1:18] <D34TH> should help
[1:19] <danieldaniel> nah
[1:19] <paulmaidment> does the pi create a swapfile on the sd?
[1:19] <ReggieUK> ukscone1, a whole collection that isn't ebay
[1:19] <ReggieUK> http://www.cafepress.co.uk/dd/23532545
[1:19] <ReggieUK> but no hoodies :(
[1:19] <Guest82451> ukscone1: It wouldn't work over there anyway because the americans use a smaller pint glass.
[1:19] <danieldaniel> this SD card has been dd'ing for 3 hours
[1:19] <danieldaniel> and its fedora
[1:19] <paulmaidment> ah, so you have been building one
[1:20] <ukscone1> Guest82451: not in my house they don't
[1:20] <Guest82451> ukscone1: You won't be able to leave the house with it then
[1:20] <paulmaidment> what distro are you using on your desktop to make the cards daniel?
[1:20] <danieldaniel> OSX
[1:20] <paulmaidment> ah ok
[1:20] <paulmaidment> what class is the SD card?
[1:20] <ukscone1> Guest82451: no problem with that as well outside is full of americans :)
[1:20] <paulmaidment> 4 or 10?
[1:20] <danieldaniel> idk
[1:20] <danieldaniel> its a 32gb sandisk
[1:21] <paulmaidment> might be a 10 if it's a big card
[1:21] <danieldaniel> yeah
[1:21] <danieldaniel> is that OK?
[1:21] <paulmaidment> but the class makes a huge difference to write times
[1:21] <ReggieUK> ukscone1, http://www.10quidtees.bigcartel.com/product/imperial-pint-mens-hoodies
[1:21] <paulmaidment> class 10 is what you should aim for
[1:22] <Gadget-Mac> BenO: Thanks for the pointers on kernel logging, new issue submitted with kernel panice
[1:22] <paulmaidment> personally, I would aim for a smaller boot SD
[1:22] * gobby (~gobby@biro.starling.org.uk) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:22] * PiBot sets mode +v gobby
[1:22] <paulmaidment> and then rely on network based storage for the big stuff
[1:22] <danieldaniel> ok
[1:22] <ukscone1> ReggieUK: thanks that is perfect (well other than price) i'll ring them on monday
[1:23] <Guest82451> the numbers wrong anyway
[1:23] <Guest82451> pint is 568
[1:23] <paulmaidment> running this one on an 8GB class 10, was nice and fast to write debian
[1:23] <paulmaidment> took 2 minutes or so
[1:24] <danieldaniel> then wtf
[1:24] <paulmaidment> hmmm....what partition are you dd'ing to?
[1:24] <danieldaniel> it says 6
[1:24] <paulmaidment> /dev/???
[1:24] <danieldaniel> rdisk1
[1:24] <paulmaidment> what is the command you used
[1:24] <ukscone1> ReggieUK: although i'll still probably have a go at doing one using silkscreening as well as those are vinyl leettering which can peel off
[1:24] <danieldaniel> dd if=/Users/daniel184/Downloads/raspberrypi-fedora-remix-14-r1.img of=/dev/rdisk1
[1:25] <ReggieUK> It'd be more fun silk-screening your own
[1:25] <paulmaidment> ok, so next question is, do you have a USB stick inserted also?
[1:25] * hakimsheriff (461df89f@gateway/web/freenode/ip.70.29.248.159) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:26] <danieldaniel> wow
[1:26] <danieldaniel> its actually booting
[1:26] <danieldaniel> and it didn't finish
[1:26] <danieldaniel> oh, nvm
[1:26] <paulmaidment> ah, may crash later
[1:26] <danieldaniel> it just stopped
[1:26] <danieldaniel> yeah
[1:26] <Guest82451> stfu danieldaniel
[1:26] <paulmaidment> how big is the img file daniel?
[1:26] * IT_Sean (~sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: reboot)

[1:27] <danieldaniel> lemme check
[1:27] <danieldaniel> 1.77 gb
[1:27] <paulmaidment> ok, remove the SD
[1:27] <danieldaniel> i did
[1:28] <paulmaidment> on the label do you see a 4 or a 10 in the circle logo?
[1:28] * chandoo (~chandoo@ool-ad032250.dyn.optonline.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:28] * PiBot sets mode +v chandoo
[1:28] <danieldaniel> 6
[1:28] <paulmaidment> well, more like a "C"
[1:28] <paulmaidment> :)
[1:28] <danieldaniel> yeah
[1:28] <danieldaniel> its 6
[1:28] <paulmaidment> ok, so it's a class 6
[1:28] <danieldaniel> yeah
[1:28] <paulmaidment> ideally a class 10 would give you top performance
[1:28] <danieldaniel> is that ok?
[1:28] <paulmaidment> it should be able to boot from a class 6 I think
[1:29] <danieldaniel> ok
[1:29] * chandoo- (~chandoo@ool-ad032250.dyn.optonline.net) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:29] <paulmaidment> I booted from a class 4 before
[1:29] <paulmaidment> have you done any other images with this card yet?
[1:29] <danieldaniel> no
[1:29] <paulmaidment> like debian etc?
[1:29] <danieldaniel> just got it
[1:29] <paulmaidment> try debian for a start
[1:30] <Guest82451> try openelec
[1:30] <danieldaniel> ok
[1:30] <Guest82451> paulmaidment: class 10 sucks
[1:30] <paulmaidment> @Guest82451 Can you qualify that statement?
[1:30] <danieldaniel> downloading
[1:31] <Guest82451> paulmaidment: other than half the cards being incompatible with the pi they don't do very well with small random read/writes
[1:31] <paulmaidment> cool :)
[1:32] <paulmaidment> so by 'don't do very well' do we mean the pi crashes? or slow performance?
[1:32] <Guest82451> don't do very well
[1:32] <paulmaidment> that's a subvjective statement unless you qualify it
[1:33] <danieldaniel> lol
[1:33] <Guest82451> quantifying is for saps and ReggieUK
[1:33] <ReggieUK> stop trolling
[1:34] <paulmaidment> ok,. you are clearly a troll, not taking you seriously as you are unwilling to back up your statement with proof
[1:34] <danieldaniel> http://www.ebay.com/itm/Raspberry-Pi-Model-B-Brand-New-HDMI-USB-10-100-NIC-/150805714963?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item231cb89813#ht_500wt_1413
[1:34] <Guest82451> ReggieUK: I was saying you're not a sap
[1:34] <danieldaniel> Only $50 for anyone interested
[1:34] <danieldaniel> its not mine, but some people might want it
[1:35] <Guest82451> ReggieUK: Troll really??? Oh come on, surely you know about class 10 sd cards? It's been discussed a million times.
[1:35] * Turingi (~devon@unaffiliated/devon-hillard/x-7250961) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:35] <paulmaidment> well, saying something like, "cards don't do very well" and not going further is spreading nonsense
[1:36] <paulmaidment> tell me what you mean by that statement, in more detail
[1:36] <Guest82451> Just because I'm lazy, doesn't make me wrong.
[1:36] <paulmaidment> if you really know what you are talking about, you would be happy to do that
[1:36] <paulmaidment> too lazy to choose and register a nick too
[1:36] <Guest82451> But this is my nick
[1:37] * danieldaniel is trying debian
[1:37] <paulmaidment> @danieldaniel cool
[1:37] <paulmaidment> is the image writing ok this time?
[1:37] * Veryevil (~Veryevil@5aced5a8.bb.sky.com) Quit ()
[1:38] <danieldaniel> idk
[1:38] <danieldaniel> it doesn't output anything
[1:38] <paulmaidment> 2 secs, let me look up the instructions for dd, maybe we can make it go verbose
[1:38] <danieldaniel> i already looked those up
[1:38] <danieldaniel> :(
[1:40] <paulmaidment> I guess you just have to wait for it to write
[1:40] * vgrade (~martinbro@cpc2-nrte22-2-0-cust128.8-4.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:41] <danieldaniel> yep
[1:41] <danieldaniel> :(
[1:42] <paulmaidment> worst case scenario, you could use a tool like virtualbox to install a vm on your mac
[1:42] <paulmaidment> and install ubuntu
[1:43] <GabrialDestruir> Is there a simple and accurate way to turn a PDF of images into words?
[1:43] <paulmaidment> do you have any other pc actually?
[1:43] <Guest82451> GabrialDestruir: ocr

[1:46] * Delboy_ (~Kombajn@173-80.dsl.iskon.hr) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[1:47] <paulmaidment> how's the write coming along daniel?
[1:47] <danieldaniel> still doing it
[1:47] <danieldaniel> it seems like the sd is broken
[1:47] <danieldaniel> And I just spent $50 on it
[1:47] <danieldaniel> :(
[1:47] * Hopsy (~Hopsy@unaffiliated/hopsy) Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[1:48] <Guest82451> that's what you get for sticking a swap partition on an sd card
[1:48] <paulmaidment> in my opinion 32GB is a bit large for booting a pi, possible to do, I am sure, but better with a smaller card
[1:48] <GabrialDestruir> Yeesh, you put a swap partition on an SD?

[1:50] <GabrialDestruir> Depends on it's use.
[1:50] <GabrialDestruir> If you want to store more than just the OS, that 32 could come in handy
[1:50] <paulmaidment> true, depends if it's networked I guess
[1:50] <Guest82451> How else am I going to fit my bluray rips on my new media player?
[1:50] <paulmaidment> as that is what samba is for
[1:50] <paulmaidment> you would put your BR rips on your nas
[1:50] <paulmaidment> and stream them
[1:51] <Guest82451> too slow
[1:51] <Guest82451> I need more than 8mb/s

[2:02] <NucWin> i was thinking of risking buying a 8GB SanDisk Ultra SDHC 15MB/s SD Card Class 4 for ??10 if i ever get a pi and no ones tried it already
[2:03] <Guest82451> NucWin: What are you intending to use it for?
[2:03] <paulmaidment> @room, sorry, I am just trying to be helpful and a part of the conversation here, some guy who cannot bother to even register a nick is making rude remarks all of the time
[2:03] <NucWin> who knows lol because i dont
[2:03] <Guest82451> NucWin: Check the list, http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals#Working_SD_Cards
[2:04] <NucWin> it wasnt there last time i checked
[2:04] <NucWin> no rush though
[2:04] <Guest82451> NucWin: How long are you intending to use this card for?
[2:04] <danieldaniel> it says mine wor
[2:04] <danieldaniel> d
[2:04] <NucWin> got email from farnell the other day saying they expect around 2-3months or something
[2:04] <danieldaniel> works*
[2:05] <NucWin> till i kill it?
[2:05] <NucWin> wow list has major reoranise and update
[2:05] <Guest82451> NucWin: With extended use of a swap partition on the sd card it probably wouldn't last more than a year, maybe 2.
[2:05] <NucWin> nice now verified
[2:05] <NucWin> \o/
[2:06] <NucWin> i had been thinking of that
[2:06] <paulmaidment> something interesting here "There are issues with most Class 10 SDHC cards, apparently due to a bug in the Broadcom bootloader.[1]
[2:06] <paulmaidment> This seems to have been fixed in sdhci.c: [2] Further feedback will be useful."
[2:07] <NucWin> will try to stick within the 256mb limit tbh
[2:07] <paulmaidment> According to that, class 10 could have a better chance of working with latest image
[2:07] <NucWin> i quite like arch so that help :)
[2:08] <NucWin> cool that makes things more interesting seen class 10 95MB/s cards lol
[2:09] <Guest82451> NucWin: the 10 indicates the speed rating. 95mb/s wouldn't be possible.

[2:24] <NucWin> looks a little burnt but no more corruption and driver fail
[2:25] <paulmaidment> @NucWin, so what is the principle behind that, soften the solder to make it less brittle/dull, restoring it?
[2:26] <NucWin> yeh was guessing issue was caused by dry connection / lead free solder
[2:26] <NucWin> wasnt worth paying for pro to resolder (was nvidia 9800GTX) and was worth a try before its trip to the bin
[2:26] <paulmaidment> cool, yeah, I saw something on the bbc a while back about them baking ps3's to fix them too

[2:28] <LogicGuy> NucWin, you can't solder the GPU & CPU

[2:30] <LogicGuy> lol
[2:30] <paulmaidment> sounds like 'bleed' could be the biggest issue there
[2:30] <LogicGuy> the thermal specs of the CPU is 50 degrees
[2:30] <NucWin> highly likely to fail but would be fun to try lol

[2:33] <paulmaidment> how do you intend to kill a pi Nucwin?
[2:33] <NucWin> i dont but shit happens

[2:39] <paulmaidment> @exfileme yes
[2:39] <NucWin> seems quite popular but the few times ive looked not found anything quite like the cpan library for perl all the code half pre done its saves a lot of time and solves some of the complex problems
[2:39] <paulmaidment> latest as in supplied with pi?
[2:40] <exfileme> i'm using fidora remix with midori 0.2.4 pre-installed. I'd like to upgrade to latest version if possible. Is it a pain?
[2:40] <paulmaidment> wiki.python.org
[2:40] <NucWin> think i might jsut have to learn c/c++ instead of more interpreted
[2:40] <paulmaidment> you would need to compile it for the pi
[2:41] <paulmaidment> not sure how easy that would be atm
[2:41] <paulmaidment> arm downloads are not commonplace (yet...the pi might change that)
[2:41] <exfileme> ahh ok
[2:42] <paulmaidment> you could try grabbing one of the src packages to see how easy or hard it is
[2:42] <paulmaidment> have you compiled from source before (anything?)
[2:43] <exfileme> a long time ago. I'm trying to get back into it.
[2:43] <exfileme> i'm basically a n00b ;)
[2:43] <LogicGuy> you probably expressed interest in the Pi
[2:43] <LogicGuy> on launch dat
[2:44] <paulmaidment> so biggest issue with something like midori would be that it is likely (just a guess) to use a wide range of libraries
[2:44] <paulmaidment> hence you would have lots of dependencies to deal with
[2:44] <paulmaidment> lots of trial and error
[2:44] <paulmaidment> but, if you are up for a challenge, that could be valuable work, to document how to compile individual apps
[2:45] <exfileme> ok
[2:45] <paulmaidment> but I am guessing it would not be very easy
[2:45] <NucWin> arch arm has midori for arm v5 & v7
[2:46] <paulmaidment> @NucWin I think the question here is "how do I get the latest build"
[2:47] <NucWin> think it is
[2:47] <paulmaidment> the build in fedora, or debian, or both?
[2:47] <plugwash> In general building stuff natively on the Pi should be pretty easy but may be very slow, cross compiling will give faster build times but is likely to be more of a PITA to set up
[2:48] <paulmaidment> @plugwash, agreed, currently investigating how to build a wifi dongle driver atm (was really surprised to find source code on the disk with the device)
[2:48] <exfileme> i'm betting we may see a Raspberry Pi MArketplace in the near future ;)

[2:56] <LogicGuy> DDoS it ?
[2:56] <LogicGuy> hah
[2:57] <paulmaidment> yup, use apache benchmark or something
[2:57] <LogicGuy> I can try
[2:57] <paulmaidment> :)
[2:57] <NucWin> maybe replace apache for nigix
[2:57] <exfileme> too bad you can't use a portion of an SD card as memory like Windows 7
[2:57] <paulmaidment> theoretically, you could....
[2:57] <NucWin> its called a swap partition
[2:57] <LogicGuy> 19:56:31 up 10:58, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.01, 0.05

[2:58] <exfileme> ahhh
[2:58] <exfileme> lol
[2:59] <LogicGuy> SD card is Class 4
[2:59] <exfileme> this is awesome information.
[2:59] <paulmaidment> you could hook an ssd in via the usb port right?
[2:59] <LogicGuy> well, if you use a SATA -> USB adapter
[2:59] <LogicGuy> you could
[2:59] <LogicGuy> I have one
[2:59] <paulmaidment> and then put your swap on that
[3:00] <Guest82451> you might aswell use a hdd, because the main benefits of ssd is the speed, which you wouldn't get with usb 2
[3:00] <paulmaidment> good point
[3:00] <LogicGuy> paulmaidment, the theoretical limit of LAN 100 Mbit/s is 12.5 MB/s
[3:00] <LogicGuy> which you wouldn't get
[3:00] <LogicGuy> so 8 MB/s is quite good
[3:00] <LogicGuy> for the Pi

[3:01] <NucWin> ^^
[3:01] <paulmaidment> and usb 3
[3:01] <Guest82451> and more ram
[3:01] <LogicGuy> hah
[3:01] <NucWin> and a dual core
[3:01] <Guest82451> and a better cpu
[3:01] <paulmaidment> and built in wifi
[3:01] <Guest82451> and a better SoC
[3:01] <dmsuse> Guest82451: it will kill the sd how?
[3:02] <Guest82451> dmsuse: longterm
[3:02] <LogicGuy> paulmaidment: the LAN controller actually uses the USB hub
[3:02] <LogicGuy> so you can't get faster than 480 Mbit/s theoretical
[3:02] <paulmaidment> ah, so the lan controller is effectively a usb device on the bus?
[3:02] <NucWin> any of you guys seen the rombus tech stuff
[3:02] <exfileme> couldn't I use a swap partition on an external HDD and connecting via the SATA to USB adapter?

[3:03] <plugwash> "you might aswell use a hdd, because the main benefits of ssd is the speed, which you wouldn't get with usb 2" yes and no, the main benefit of a SSD is IOPS, if each operation is small then a SSD may well give much better performance than a HDD even on a relatively slow bus like USB
[3:03] <paulmaidment> yes, type in lsusb

[3:04] <Guest82451> No

[3:05] <paulmaidment> would be a great way to actually power the pi also (if you can get a stable enough wattage)

[3:10] <exfileme> i'm still trying to change the time zone ;(
[3:10] <ReggieUK> and the gertboard is fairly pointless without a pi (in so much that shields for random mcu boards are old hat)
[3:10] <FZombie> adding a usb plug myself
[3:10] <LogicGuy> exfileme, that's the easiest thing to do

[3:11] <FZombie> mounting the buttons in a recess and adding a joystick when I can find one for a reasonable price
[3:11] <LogicGuy> if you bought it directly from UK and you're from US, you weren't thinking straight

[3:27] <ReggieUK> ha :D
[3:27] <paulmaidment> and then when in, "passwd"
[3:27] <Guest82451> [deXter]: actually lots of people ordered from farnell on day one.
[3:27] <ReggieUK> can you use one of those properly?
[3:27] <solarbaby> Guest82451: Wow.. I hope to see progress
[3:27] <exfileme> i got root using sudo su
[3:28] <exfileme> trying to set new password
[3:28] <exfileme> gettin it ;)
[3:28] <Guest82451> FZombie: is it wireless?
[3:28] <ReggieUK> FZombie, have you got a morse code license?
[3:28] <paulmaidment> I ordered one from RS and one from farnell
[3:28] <[deXter]> Guest82451, ReggieUK : This is Farnell NZ I'm talking about btw, I'm sure the UK/US one worked just fine..
[3:28] <FZombie> it has 2 lugs fore wires
[3:28] <paulmaidment> on day 1
[3:28] <paulmaidment> rs one is here
[3:28] <Syliss> i really should order a pi
[3:28] <FZombie> You don't need a license to use morse code
[3:28] <paulmaidment> farnell one is due on 21st march
[3:28] <Guest82451> [deXter]: well nooone cares about new zealand
[3:28] <LogicGuy> true that
[3:28] <[deXter]> Guest82451, Exactly. :(
[3:28] <ReggieUK> no of course but in general, people that can do morse code have a little bit more about them than just owning a CB radio
[3:29] <LogicGuy> my Pi is the 475 one manufactured
[3:29] <ReggieUK> so they're usually radio hams
[3:29] <exfileme> wootness
[3:29] <LogicGuy> and I'm from Canada
[3:29] <LogicGuy> feels good man.jpg
[3:29] <ReggieUK> and in the UK to be a radio ham you need a license
[3:29] <Guest82451> [deXter]: But then again, you have the option of being a hobbit
[3:29] <FZombie> can't do morse on CB radios, there are no channels for cw
[3:29] <ReggieUK> and to do morse you need a 2nd license
[3:29] <ReggieUK> exactly
[3:29] * JonSeals (~Jon@99-158-225-217.lightspeed.livnmi.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Internet probably screwing with me.)
[3:29] <FZombie> I'm a licensed ham radio operator
[3:29] <Crenn-NAS> solarbaby: Nope, You can order from July pretty much
[3:29] <ReggieUK> dadaa :)
[3:29] <danieldaniel> FZombie: n00b
[3:29] <ReggieUK> I win!
[3:29] <dmsuse> ReggieUK: is it true you can network two computers together using tcp/pi over ham radio ?
[3:29] <dmsuse> *ip
[3:29] <[deXter]> Guest71926, I tried, but I didn't fit the requirements. Wasn't tall/slim enough to be an elf, wasn't short enough to be a hobbit. :(
[3:30] <orbs> so if i tried to pre-order a RPi right now it would be like 3 months
[3:30] <orbs> not too bad
[3:30] <FZombie> dmsuse, yes and no
[3:30] <danieldaniel> orbs: more like 12
[3:30] <orbs> lame
[3:30] <ReggieUK> My dad was doing packet radio back in the BBS days but no idea whether it was tcp/ip based or pre that
[3:30] <Guest82451> ReggieUK: Meh, they're not exactly going to hunt you down.. The local radio station in my town was a pirate one for many years until they eventually made them official
[3:30] <Crenn-NAS> [deXter]: I ordered from AU element14 the day after the RPi came out
[3:30] <convolution> guys, do you know a very small UPS for raspberry?
[3:30] <FZombie> dmsuse, you are not allowed to encrypt stuff over the ham bands so you can't generally use a internet connection
[3:30] * Tomtiger11 (~tomtiger1@Tom4u/founder/tomtiger11) Quit (Quit: Bye!)
[3:30] <ReggieUK> Guest82451, it depends where you are and what you're doing
[3:30] <solarbaby> ReggieUK: I'd sure like to run my old bbs on arm processor
[3:30] <ReggieUK> they used to be quite hot on it
[3:30] <Guest82451> convolution: car battery
[3:30] <[deXter]> Crenn-NAS, And did you get it, if so when?
[3:30] <FZombie> however you can send text or morse commands out that your computer will read and do actions, technically
[3:31] <dmsuse> FZombie: i am not talking the internet, i mean to send files long distance
[3:31] <LogicGuy> car battery -> 5V Regulator -> Raspberry Pi
[3:31] <ReggieUK> like kick your door in and confiscate all your equipment kind of hot on it
[3:31] <dmsuse> between two computers
[3:31] <FZombie> dmsuse, we can send pictures, emails, txt, etc....
[3:31] <LogicGuy> the car battery will probably power the Pi for days
[3:31] <dmsuse> FZombie: cool
[3:31] <danieldaniel> LogicGuy: BOOM
[3:31] <FZombie> but anyone on can see the info
[3:31] <Crenn-NAS> [deXter]: iI'm getting it on the weeek of May 29th
[3:31] <ReggieUK> unlicensed operators are a pain in the ass
[3:31] <LogicGuy> danieldaniel: why boom ?
[3:31] <convolution> Guest71926: what?
[3:31] <ReggieUK> as they generally don't know what they're doing
[3:31] <dmsuse> FZombie: ah, whats the data speeds of say 100 miles ? do you know?
[3:31] <FZombie> it is POSSIBLE BUT NOT LEGAL for my radio to establish full encrypted private internet links just as your smart phone can on 3g/4g
[3:31] <ReggieUK> end up climbing all over frequencies they shouldn't be near

[3:32] <danieldaniel> My dad has a wifi-hotspot in his car now
[3:32] <danieldaniel> :D
[3:32] <ReggieUK> some pirate stations will also get on better than others, it really depends on the content
[3:32] <FZombie> we are limited to low-bauds but it's possible to break the law and go faster
[3:32] <orbs> 12 months hmm
[3:32] * ahks is now known as ahks_
[3:32] <ReggieUK> avoid politics religion, swearing etc. and you'll probably be ok
[3:32] <dmsuse> FZombie: what speeds do you get sending an image then usually?
[3:32] <LogicGuy> Well guys, there are amateur satellites that transmit Usenet binaries 24/7 with speeds of 50-60 Mbit/s
[3:32] <LogicGuy> you can get the latest movies using a satellite dish + motor
[3:32] <[deXter]> Crenn-NAS, See that's my problem.. how can you wait for so long after ordering something? It'll kill me.
[3:32] * ahks_ is now known as Ahks
[3:33] <LogicGuy> so I don't know about amateur radio :D
[3:33] <Guest82451> [deXter]: My tactic is to completely forget about it
[3:33] <solarbaby> LogicGuy: Now that really does sound cool.. no need for a ISP'
[3:33] <dmsuse> ^^
[3:33] <ReggieUK> amateur radio can use satellite dishes too
[3:33] <Guest82451> [deXter]: and then 3 months later a pleasant suprise turns up

[3:33] <LogicGuy> solarbaby the configuration is a pain in the ass
[3:34] <Crenn-NAS> They didn't expect a whole bunch of problems that occurred
[3:34] <solarbaby> LogicGuy: I could only imagine.. then again my slow isp is a pain in the ass too
[3:34] <LogicGuy> you need GPS coordinates, a motor, Satellite receiver Card for your computer, software, encryption keys

[3:34] <[deXter]> Guest82451, That's all well and good, but what if it never turns up? Is there tracking and stuff on the order? What if you aren't at home when the Pi arrives?
[3:34] <dmsuse> i wanted a pi for sending webcam images from remote locations and sending the pics via ham radio
[3:34] <FZombie> dmsuse, it depends really, I forget what the legal limit is most people just end up texting on like 45-300 baud
[3:35] <dmsuse> FZombie: cool. thanks
[3:35] <Guest82451> [deXter]: It wouldn't bother me, because I would have already forgotten.
[3:35] <ReggieUK> gps I can do, motor, that's very easy, got an alt/az motorised telescope mount, encryption keys might be difficult but alignment software would be an absolute breeze
[3:35] <FZombie> you can do ATV which is really a full color full picture image just like you get on a regular tv on specific bands
[3:35] * ReggieUK could track satellites
[3:35] <FZombie> You just can't use any of those for commercial use or encrypt them
[3:35] <Guest82451> [deXter]: I've never bothered to chase up orders and everything always gets delivered.. If I'm not in then a note gets left

[3:38] <dmsuse> couldn't you have just used a motorised satellite dish for satellite tv? they are much cheaper :P
[3:38] <FZombie> if you guys want info on being a ham you can hit up ##hamradio requires you identify your username first. I can personally give info about how to become a ham in the USA
[3:38] <Crenn-NAS> Although for me, I told e14 to use the local postal service as they kept on leaving the packages at my door and they'd get stolen
[3:38] <[deXter]> Crenn-NAS, do they at least mail you in advance letting you know they've shipped the package?
[3:38] <Crenn-NAS> Only cheap components, but still very annoying
[3:38] <FZombie> ReggieUK, we made a sat tracker with 15$ and some spare time
[3:38] <ReggieUK> nice :)
[3:39] <FZombie> ran on belts and used motors
[3:39] <LogicGuy> okay guys

[3:40] * tiger1 (~ich@82.113.121.50) has left #raspberrypi
[3:41] <FZombie> I've had contact with the ISS
[3:41] <dmsuse> cool
[3:41] <FZombie> by just point and click
[3:41] <FZombie> no tracker
[3:41] <ReggieUK> I'm guessing with a satellite tracker theres a reasonable sized cone that you can aim at?
[3:41] <ReggieUK> you must've been moving the dish?
[3:41] <FZombie> just get the polarity of your antenna right and if you have a reflector thats better
[3:41] <ReggieUK> as the ISS zips across the sky when it does a pass
[3:42] <mkopack> That's one thing id like to see some time... Seems like every time I try to see it it ends up being cloudy here
[3:42] <FZombie> heres how it happend the first time, i was a new ham and my friend told me "go outside point to this star, turn on radio to freq" and that was the first time I heard the ISS
[3:42] <Guest82451> ugh what happened to the raspberrypi topic?
[3:42] <ReggieUK> mkopack, I keep randomly wandering outside, looking up and there it is, whizzing by
[3:42] <FZombie> that was just hearing it on a Handheld with a small little antenna
[3:42] <dmsuse> ham is soo much cooler
[3:43] <Crenn-NAS> [deXter]: For the last few packages, no, however I believe the RPi will be a different case
[3:43] <mkopack> Too much light pollution here to see it that easily

[3:44] <FZombie> balloon radio tracking, sat tracking, etc.
[3:44] <FZombie> listen can be done on a 40$ radio
[3:45] <ReggieUK> I've watched some of the progress of the balloon trackers
[3:45] <dmsuse> i had a radio before, never picked anything up other than local radio stations :(
[3:45] <dmsuse> so sold it :(
[3:45] <ReggieUK> last one I watched made it across the atlantic from somewhere mid-west america
[3:45] <FZombie> http://www.issfanclub.com/frequencies pick a freq, some you can even tx on
[3:45] <ReggieUK> can't remember where it made landfall, spain I think

[3:50] <mkopack> Pi is just WAY too slow IO to use as a NAS??? a POOR man's NAS, maybe???
[3:50] <Crenn-NAS> mkopack: Nah, I'll pass, saw it on twitter and decided it wasn't too much of an interest to me
[3:50] <LogicGuy> mkopack: i would disagree on that
[3:50] <mkopack> but if you have an actual NAS, pointless to replace it with the Pi
[3:50] <LogicGuy> 8 MB/s read speeds from Apache is quite good
[3:50] <mkopack> But that's not as a file server, you're talking WEB serving there
[3:51] <mkopack> I'm talking NAS = FILE server
[3:51] <Crenn-NAS> LogicGuy: 1 to tinker with, 1 to be a server, and the rest for projects ;D
[3:51] <D34TH> hook the drive up via usd :3
[3:51] <paulmaidment> you up and running now danieldaniel?
[3:51] <danieldaniel> Yeah
[3:51] <danieldaniel> whats the root pass?
[3:51] <danieldaniel> for debian?
[3:51] <paulmaidment> excellent
[3:51] <LogicGuy> just do sudo su
[3:51] <LogicGuy> after you're in pi
[3:51] <LogicGuy> n00b
[3:51] <danieldaniel> oh
[3:51] <danieldaniel> sudo su - worked
[3:51] <paulmaidment> go in as pi/raspberry
[3:51] <danieldaniel> thanks
[3:51] <FZombie> the cool thing is I'm a minimalist so the pi works for me, there are so many people who will always ask "why doesn't pi have bluetooth or fiber optic or"
[3:51] <paulmaidment> sudo su
[3:51] <Crenn-NAS> mkopack: If it transfers faster than 6MB/s via SAMBA, it beats my shitty NAS
[3:52] <mkopack> You must have a REALLY shitty NAS then
[3:52] <LogicGuy> let me get Samba running
[3:52] <Crenn-NAS> mkopack: Note, 200MHZz ARM ;P
[3:52] <FZombie> I'd like to see how far it can be pushed but my main task is going to be controlling small projects. Not replacing web servers.
[3:52] <danieldaniel> paulmaidment: I appreciate the help though :)
[3:53] <mkopack> I was given a Thecus 5900, but ended up selling it and picking up a Drobo to directly attach to a Mac Mini (which I use as my HTPC / TV capture setup, and thus file server
[3:53] <paulmaidment> and once you sudo su you can passwd to change the pass
[3:53] <mkopack> Crenn-NAS: Ah.. yeah??? missed that part
[3:53] <paulmaidment> I usually do the pi password from the root prompt also
[3:53] <tpresence> anyone update their debian firmware and have it still work?
[3:53] <danieldaniel> having 32gb of space is nice
[3:53] <danieldaniel> :D
[3:53] <Crenn-NAS> mkopack: It will also be a web server as well, and my irssi server ;D

[3:54] <paulmaidment> does quake work without the pak files?

[3:55] <tpresence> I used the debian today, but I think its been there a few days
[3:55] <paulmaidment> i.e. the quake download, is it the complete game?
[3:55] <LogicGuy> > oh shit wtf.jpg
[3:55] <danieldaniel> paulmaidment: no
[3:55] <tpresence> but every time I try to update firmware, it totally hoses my pi
[3:55] <danieldaniel> paulmaidment: i had to get the pak3 files
[3:55] <paulmaidment> yeah, that debian is good, running it now
[3:55] <Crenn-NAS> LogicGuy: Hey I don't know how Linux works... I didn't write it after all ;P
[3:55] <paulmaidment> ah, ok, makes sense danieldaniel
[3:55] <LogicGuy> I mean this is not Windows people
[3:55] <LogicGuy> you need to search stuff
[3:56] <paulmaidment> what is the main problem you are having tpresence?
[3:56] <LogicGuy> on Google, etc.
[3:56] <Crenn-NAS> LogicGuy: Why use Google when there are nerds here?
[3:56] <LogicGuy> because they don't know how file systems on the Pi work
[3:56] <danieldaniel> how do I edit the partition
[3:57] <Crenn-NAS> LogicGuy: I don't either ;P

[3:57] <LogicGuy> read what I write
[3:57] <paulmaidment> hans reiser does, he's a little 'off the grid' right now (joke for anyone who knows about that)
[3:57] <tpresence> paul: when I replace firmware in /boot the damn things never boot again
[3:57] <Crenn-NAS> For me, File systems are magical things which you set up once and forget about
[3:57] <tpresence> even if I use the tools published by liam
[3:58] <tpresence> paul: I bet he would kill to do more fs devel
[3:58] <paulmaidment> ah, I see, so you don't replace the whole image, just the firmware in the boot directory
[3:58] <tpresence> yeah
[3:58] <paulmaidment> is that the standard way to upgrade?
[3:58] <tpresence> and I end up starting over
[3:58] <tpresence> apparently it is
[3:58] <paulmaidment> would a re-image not be cleaner?
[3:58] <tpresence> not if you want to retain stuff
[3:58] <paulmaidment> true, I did not know this technique
[3:58] <paulmaidment> so, had it work before?
[3:59] <tpresence> it hasnt worked for me
[3:59] <tpresence> but it does work for others
[3:59] <paulmaidment> ok, lets come at this from another angle
[3:59] <paulmaidment> what have you changed that you need to retain?

[4:02] <danieldaniel> yeah
[4:02] <danieldaniel> blue desktop
[4:02] <paulmaidment> gparted should run there
[4:02] <paulmaidment> blue desktop with LXDE logo
[4:02] <tpresence> I wish they would fix the audio and res detection :(

[4:11] <paulmaidment> you get the resolution sorted tpresence?
[4:11] <exfileme> i love this think
[4:11] <exfileme> thing
[4:11] <paulmaidment> excellent device eh?
[4:12] <paulmaidment> have you set up ssh yet exfileme?
[4:12] <exfileme> yeah, and it's forcing me to not be lazy and actually type in commands ;)
[4:12] <paulmaidment> :)
[4:12] <exfileme> ssh?
[4:12] <solarbaby> write scripts for those commands in the future
[4:12] <paulmaidment> yeah, "secure shell"
[4:12] <exfileme> oh no not yet
[4:12] <paulmaidment> so you can log into your pi over the network
[4:12] <paulmaidment> like from your laptop
[4:12] <exfileme> i'd love that
[4:13] <paulmaidment> from a command line
[4:13] <paulmaidment> apt-get install ssh
[4:13] <paulmaidment> you need to be root for that, or sudo it
[4:13] <paulmaidment> and you need to be on a network, so it can download the updates
[4:13] <exfileme> i created a root password
[4:13] <solarbaby> if you use reverse ssh tunnel and you have another server somewhere.. you'll be able to access yoru pi behind firewalls that you don't control
[4:13] <LogicGuy> SSH is already installed on the device
[4:13] <solarbaby> so you could leave your pi all over the place and still have access to it
[4:13] <LogicGuy> you just need to change the boot_ssh.rc to boot.rc
[4:14] <paulmaidment> not on debian by default logicguy
[4:14] <LogicGuy> yes
[4:14] <LogicGuy> by default
[4:14] <paulmaidment> or it's not started
[4:14] <LogicGuy> trust me :)
[4:14] <LogicGuy> it's not started
[4:14] * oberling (~oberling@brln-4d0c06fc.pool.mediaWays.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[4:14] <LogicGuy> go to the /boot folder
[4:14] <LogicGuy> and rename the boot_ssh_something.rc
[4:14] <LogicGuy> to boot.rc
[4:14] <LogicGuy> using mv boot_ssh_something.rc boot.rc
[4:14] <BenO> ffs - got stable, decent sounding sound via mplayer thru alsa, but the cpu has shot up :(
[4:14] <paulmaidment> update-rc.d ssh defaults
[4:15] <paulmaidment> and then reboot the pi
[4:15] <paulmaidment> you should then have ssh running by default
[4:15] <Crenn-NAS> LogicGuy: cp would also work ;P
[4:15] <LogicGuy> BenO, yeah CPU doesn't like sound
[4:15] <BenO> LogicGuy, Actually, I take that back - it's just mp3's
[4:16] <LogicGuy> .wav works okay ?
[4:16] <BenO> hmm will have to investigate further, but alsa might be functioning now...
[4:16] <LogicGuy> good
[4:16] <LogicGuy> I'm waiting Liam to put a XMBC tutoria
[4:16] <LogicGuy> tutorial
[4:16] <BenO> yeah, but mp3 playback at 30ish% cpu is suckage
[4:16] <exfileme> i dont see and boot related .rc file
[4:17] <paulmaidment> is there an xbmc sd card image?
[4:17] <exfileme> bootcode.bin is closest
[4:17] <Crenn-NAS> Has anyone with a RPi played with SPI yet?
[4:17] <BenO> Whereas ogg is playing back at 6%...
[4:17] <paulmaidment> @exfileme update-rc.d ssh defaults
[4:17] <paulmaidment> just type that in and reboot
[4:17] <paulmaidment> trust me
[4:17] <paulmaidment> it tells debian that you wish to boot ssh when the OS starts
[4:17] <LogicGuy> paulmaidment's command can work too
[4:18] <LogicGuy> :)
[4:18] <paulmaidment> I looked into that this afternoon

[4:18] <paulmaidment> where can I grab SPI Crenn?

[4:19] <exfileme> warning: ssh stop runlevel arguments
[4:19] <Crenn-NAS> I don't know, I was wondering if someone has played with it
[4:19] <dmsuse> BenO: try mpg123 or mpg321
[4:19] <paulmaidment> don't worry about the messages
[4:19] <paulmaidment> just reboot and all will be well
[4:19] <exfileme> do no match LSB default-Stop values
[4:19] <exfileme> ok
[4:20] <Crenn-NAS> If someone hasn't by the time I've gotten a Pi, I'll try to write some C code so I can communicate between a RPi and a Leaflabs Maple ;D
[4:20] <bikcmp> maple?
[4:20] <paulmaidment> anyone know where I can download SPI?
[4:21] <paulmaidment> (that's the XBMC build right?)
[4:21] <Crenn-NAS> bikcmp: Like an Arduino but with a Cortex-M3
[4:21] <exfileme> rebooted
[4:21] <Crenn-NAS> paulmaidment: It's an interface available on the RPi
[4:21] <Crenn-NAS> It's a serial interface
[4:21] <paulmaidment> ok, type ... ssh root@localhost
[4:22] <paulmaidment> what do you see, a message about key auth?
[4:22] <paulmaidment> or a request for username?
[4:22] <paulmaidment> or something else?
[4:22] <exfileme> just a blank entry
[4:23] <paulmaidment> ??
[4:23] <paulmaidment> can you paste here?

[4:24] <exfileme> yes sorry
[4:24] <paulmaidment> ok, got another machine on the network?
[4:24] <paulmaidment> what OS does the other machine run?
[4:24] <exfileme> this one
[4:24] <exfileme> ;)
[4:24] <exfileme> windows 7
[4:24] <paulmaidment> ok, google for a program called putty
[4:24] <dmsuse> BenO: do you get better results with those players?
[4:24] <paulmaidment> putty.exe
[4:25] <exfileme> i kicked Ubuntu off the network for Pi
[4:25] <exfileme> ok
[4:25] <paulmaidment> while you are doing that, go into the pi and type ifconfig
[4:25] <paulmaidment> and tell me what IP address comes up (usually 192.168.1.X)
[4:26] <paulmaidment> but could be different
[4:27] <paulmaidment> you got putty yet?
[4:27] <exfileme> hmm still says 127.0.0.1
[4:27] <paulmaidment> so no other addresses, have you plugged in the ethernet cable?

[4:29] <paulmaidment> ok, cool
[4:29] <paulmaidment> you downloaded putty yet?
[4:29] <exfileme> yes it's running
[4:29] <paulmaidment> cool, 2 secs, I will bring it up on my windows machine so I can see the same
[4:30] <paulmaidment> ok, in host name, type the IP
[4:30] <paulmaidment> port 22
[4:30] <exfileme> did it
[4:30] <paulmaidment> then hit open
[4:30] <paulmaidment> does it connect and request username/password?
[4:30] <LogicGuy> lol
[4:31] <exfileme> login as:
[4:31] <paulmaidment> excellent
[4:31] <paulmaidment> just log in as though you are on the pi itself
[4:31] <paulmaidment> did that work, logged in?
[4:31] <exfileme> yes
[4:31] <paulmaidment> type reboot :)
[4:32] <paulmaidment> and witness the awesome power of ssh :D
[4:32] <exfileme> must have superuser
[4:32] <paulmaidment> sudo
[4:32] <paulmaidment> sudo !!
[4:32] <paulmaidment> and then use your password
[4:32] <paulmaidment> or sudo reboot
[4:32] <paulmaidment> :)
[4:32] <paulmaidment> !! just types the last command in your history
[4:32] <paulmaidment> dead handy that one
[4:33] <exfileme> used sudo reboot
[4:33] <paulmaidment> did that work?
[4:33] <exfileme> rebooting
[4:33] <paulmaidment> :)
[4:33] <paulmaidment> cool, so that test worked
[4:33] <paulmaidment> we established that SSH is working
[4:33] <paulmaidment> and it starts on reboot
[4:33] <exfileme> rebooted
[4:33] <paulmaidment> when pi is up, try to connect again
[4:34] <paulmaidment> and there you go, remote control of your pi enabled :)
[4:34] <tpresence> well I can get 1860x1040, which is crap, but its the best I can do
[4:34] <paulmaidment> tpresence, did you try the settings I sent you?
[4:35] <paulmaidment> disable_overscan is something you need in there
[4:35] <tpresence> I did
[4:35] <exfileme> it connected
[4:35] <tpresence> it gave me 1860x1040
[4:35] <tpresence> BUT
[4:35] <tpresence> it was overlapping the edges
[4:36] <tpresence> so I had to do overscan_left and such
[4:37] <paulmaidment> @exfileme
[4:37] <paulmaidment> @exfileme it works then :)

[5:08] <bikcmp> i want one so bad
[5:08] <bikcmp> lol
[5:08] <LogicGuy> no credit card ?
[5:08] <LogicGuy> even teens want it :D
[5:08] <ShiftPlusOne> heh
[5:08] <bikcmp> eh?
[5:08] <bikcmp> LogicGuy: i've got credit cards
[5:09] <bikcmp> i want one, but there's no where to buy them from what i understand
[5:09] <LogicGuy> nice troll sentance
[5:09] <rredd4> according to the pi website, if you order it now, you will get it july/august
[5:09] <LogicGuy> you should've ordered it on launch day, like many of us did
[5:09] <bikcmp> LogicGuy: i had work.
[5:09] <bikcmp> rredd4: where can i order it at?
[5:09] <bikcmp> lol
[5:10] <ShiftPlusOne> you put work ahead of raspberry pi? O_o
[5:10] <rredd4> usa?
[5:10] <paulmaidment> rs components or element 14 / farnell
[5:10] <LogicGuy> RS is for UK
[5:10] <LogicGuy> Element14 is for the rest
[5:10] <ShiftPlusOne> RS is also international AFAIK
[5:10] <exfileme> element 14 is USA i think
[5:10] <LogicGuy> www.newark.com is for US

[5:10] <paulmaidment> RS only shipping to uk currently
[5:11] <paulmaidment> newark is part of the element 14 group
[5:11] <bikcmp> oh
[5:11] <LogicGuy> the most secure way to get Rpi currently is from newark
[5:11] <bikcmp> i'm in the us
[5:11] <LogicGuy> they called me when I got my Pi
[5:11] <LogicGuy> to see if I like it
[5:11] <bikcmp> nice
[5:11] <paulmaidment> nice :)
[5:11] <bikcmp> LogicGuy: i'm deaf
[5:11] <bikcmp> so like
[5:11] <bikcmp> yeah
[5:11] <bikcmp> lol
[5:12] <LogicGuy> haha
[5:12] <bikcmp> gonna need to be a text
[5:12] <bikcmp> lol
[5:12] <LogicGuy> really ?
[5:12] <bikcmp> LogicGuy: pretty much
[5:12] <bikcmp> i can hear noises but i can't parse them
[5:12] <LogicGuy> :(
[5:12] <LogicGuy> yeah the lady was like: "we're very sorry on the delay on your shipment, there ware some manufacturing problems"
[5:12] <LogicGuy> "are you satisfied with your Pi"
[5:13] <paulmaidment> all of the pi units had to go through safety checks in each country
[5:13] <bikcmp> what does lead time: 141 days
[5:13] <bikcmp> mean?
[5:13] <paulmaidment> that's where the delays came from
[5:13] <bikcmp> 141 days until it's expected to ship?
[5:13] <LogicGuy> it will be shipped in 141 days
[5:13] <LogicGuy> yes
[5:13] <paulmaidment> it means they are backed up with orders and expect to ship your device in 141 days if you order today
[5:13] <paulmaidment> but may be sooner
[5:14] <exfileme> doh
[5:14] <bikcmp> eh
[5:14] <bikcmp> i think i might wait.
[5:14] <paulmaidment> on twitter they are saying that all devices will be shipped by end of august
[5:14] <exfileme> might as well wait for the "boxed" version
[5:14] <bikcmp> tbh
[5:14] <bikcmp> yeah
[5:14] <paulmaidment> even if you order today
[5:14] <bikcmp> even if i order today
[5:14] <bikcmp> i won't have it
[5:14] <bikcmp> lol
[5:14] <LogicGuy> exfileme: my pi came in a box
[5:14] <LogicGuy> it was UPS Express Air
[5:14] <paulmaidment> you mean the plastic case?
[5:14] <exfileme> lol
[5:14] <exfileme> lol yeah the Educational version will have a case
[5:15] <paulmaidment> those are third party 3d prints
[5:15] <exfileme> ahhh
[5:15] <LogicGuy> paulmaidment: no it's actually a box + pink padding
[5:15] <paulmaidment> you can get the scematic and print with a 3d printer, or...
[5:15] <rredd4> what was the total cost?
[5:15] <paulmaidment> buy case
[5:15] <exfileme> might cram mine in an atari cartridge or something
[5:15] <paulmaidment> LogicGuy, you mean the cardboard box?
[5:15] <LogicGuy> paulmaidment: yes
[5:15] <LogicGuy> + pink padding
[5:16] <LogicGuy> http://i.imgur.com/ZVdtz.jpg
[5:16] <paulmaidment> Yeah, I got that, and the foam
[5:16] <LogicGuy> this was my 4chan image

[5:16] <paulmaidment> my pi came in that box
[5:16] <paulmaidment> but was grey foam, kinda purple really
[5:16] <danieldaniel> Where did you get it from?
[5:16] <danieldaniel> farnell or rs
[5:16] <paulmaidment> RS in the UK
[5:16] <danieldaniel> that doesn't look like what I got
[5:16] <danieldaniel> oh

[5:18] <LogicGuy> I'm in Socialist Canada
[5:18] <LogicGuy> have good teeth and a Pi
[5:18] <paulmaidment> aboot time
[5:18] <paulmaidment> sorry, couldn't resist the canadian accent joke :D
[5:18] <LogicGuy> aboot
[5:18] <LogicGuy> hahah
[5:18] <LogicGuy> true eh ?
[5:18] <paulmaidment> yup :)
[5:19] <RITRedbeard> hmmm
[5:19] <rredd4> liz was in CA, they didn't bring any pi's with them.
[5:19] <LogicGuy> she probably ordered from RS
[5:19] <RITRedbeard> i'm going to use the pis to implement scheme in hardware, like, hardward lisp
[5:19] <exfileme> Better hope the RIAA doesnt hear the background song in the quake 3 video ;)
[5:19] <RITRedbeard> then I am going to fit 20 of them in a suitcase, a business suitcase
[5:20] <danieldaniel> LOL http://i.imgur.com/mplST.jpg
[5:20] <RITRedbeard> and I'm going to make every bit of code parallel if it kills me
[5:20] <RITRedbeard> and then I'll have a suitcase of fast pi
[5:20] <paulmaidment> a pi grid
[5:21] <RITRedbeard> then when I resurrect Sussman we'll take over the world
[5:21] <RITRedbeard> by using the wizardry known as coding
[5:21] <exfileme> pic can do wierelsss keyboard and mouse?
[5:21] <RITRedbeard> and other ancient rituals
[5:21] <LogicGuy> yes, my Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard work fine
[5:21] <exfileme> man i'm such a n00b
[5:22] <danieldaniel> exfileme: ikr
[5:22] <LogicGuy> lol
[5:22] <paulmaidment> wireless keyboard and mouse are simple
[5:22] <LogicGuy> there are 2 kinds of people in this channel: those who expressed an interest in the RS site and those who actually ordered the Pi
[5:22] <paulmaidment> just buy a 'single dongle' based keyboard and mouse
[5:23] <RITRedbeard> what if you bought a pandaboard-es?
[5:23] <danieldaniel> LogicGuy: which one am i
[5:23] <LogicGuy> the one who ordered
[5:23] <RITRedbeard> then you are a BOSS
[5:23] <danieldaniel> no
[5:23] <danieldaniel> i expressed the intrest
[5:23] <paulmaidment> @LogicGuy, depending on perspective we might say there are 10 types of people
[5:23] <BenO> I have to say, very disappointed in RS
[5:23] <danieldaniel> BenO: I'm not
[5:23] <danieldaniel> I have a nice shiny Pi
[5:24] <LogicGuy> and you're in the UK
[5:24] <LogicGuy> this is where the difference is
[5:24] <LogicGuy> n00b
[5:24] <danieldaniel> imm in the US
[5:24] <BenO> Got one from Farnell, ordered a second last week and will get it before end of June
[5:24] <RITRedbeard> what FPS did you get with q3?
[5:24] <exfileme> anyone cut the power or just leave it on all the time?
[5:24] <RITRedbeard> also is the the source iD released or what implementation?
[5:24] <danieldaniel> RITRedbeard: how do I check?
[5:24] <BenO> RS have ignored me but I still get their love letters from time to time
[5:24] <paulmaidment> Mind you, if you think about the amazing thing the foundation has done here, you have to cut them some slack
[5:24] <RITRedbeard> console command I guess; is it totally smooth?
[5:24] <danieldaniel> yeeah
[5:24] <paulmaidment> cheapest fully functional linux box ever
[5:24] <BenO> "Almost ready to take your order for the Pi!"
[5:24] <danieldaniel> it is actually
[5:24] <exfileme> my FPS would drop when multiple bots would be in the area dancing around
[5:24] <paulmaidment> designed for learning, small, powerful
[5:25] <paulmaidment> and lots of potential for embedded use
[5:25] <RITRedbeard> they're called routers
[5:25] <ReggieUK> it's a pity lots of people will miss the point
[5:25] <ReggieUK> and have already
[5:25] <LogicGuy> danieldaniel: what was the shipping from UK brohon ?
[5:25] <RITRedbeard> and I have some
[5:25] <paulmaidment> well, yes, but most routers do not have an HDMI output
[5:25] <LogicGuy> over 9000 pounds ?
[5:25] <paulmaidment> or sound
[5:25] <danieldaniel> LogicGuy: what?
[5:25] <RITRedbeard> mine does
[5:25] <danieldaniel> my uranium?
[5:25] <danieldaniel> what?
[5:25] <RITRedbeard> every router I purchased has those features
[5:25] <RITRedbeard> aren't they standard?
[5:26] <paulmaidment> lol
[5:26] <RITRedbeard> good points, I guess
[5:26] <RITRedbeard> I was trying to play counter-strike source today on T410 w/ NVS 3100m
[5:26] <RITRedbeard> at native
[5:26] <RITRedbeard> and it wasn't happening
[5:26] <paulmaidment> anyhow, this device has potential in both the hobbyist and commercial sectors

[5:30] <danieldaniel> there is no config.txt
[5:30] <LogicGuy> ;P
[5:31] <RITRedbeard> so wait
[5:31] <paulmaidment> you need to make the file

[5:32] <paulmaidment> I think they list the modes in here
[5:32] <paulmaidment> but just vi /boot/config.txt
[5:32] <danieldaniel> didn't fix it
[5:32] <paulmaidment> did anything change?
[5:32] <danieldaniel> no
[5:32] <danieldaniel> well, yeah
[5:32] <danieldaniel> it did
[5:32] <paulmaidment> what changed?
[5:32] <danieldaniel> i can barely see anything :(
[5:33] <RITRedbeard> you have to reboot?
[5:33] <RITRedbeard> what is the native resolution of the display?
[5:33] <danieldaniel> i did
[5:33] <danieldaniel> XD

[5:33] <danieldaniel> imma try 4
[5:33] <paulmaidment> is it a tv or is it a monitor?

[5:36] <danieldaniel> i just looked at it

[5:37] <danieldaniel> ok
[5:37] <danieldaniel> :D
[5:37] <exfileme> I had to add hdmi_drive=2 to get sound working via HDMI
[5:37] <paulmaidment> the overscan settings will trim the edges of the screen in to force the image to fit
[5:37] <danieldaniel> oh, i forgot to mention
[5:37] <danieldaniel> I'm not using HDML
[5:37] <danieldaniel> HDMI*
[5:37] <paulmaidment> ah, cheers for that @exfileme
[5:37] <danieldaniel> XD
[5:38] <paulmaidment> adding that now
[5:38] <exfileme> but HDMI_mode=16 makes it 1080p?
[5:38] <paulmaidment> yup, though some tv's struggle to make it look right
[5:39] <danieldaniel> i think that fixed it
[5:39] <danieldaniel> :D
[5:39] <danieldaniel> let me run quake3
[5:39] <paulmaidment> the overscan commands?
[5:39] <exfileme> no sound in quake
[5:39] <danieldaniel> paulmaidment: yeah
[5:39] <danieldaniel> that fixed it
[5:39] <paulmaidment> nice
[5:39] <danieldaniel> I took out the HDMI thing
[5:40] <paulmaidment> it may be slightly less than 1020p now though
[5:40] <paulmaidment> just slightly
[5:40] <paulmaidment> maybe 40 pixels or so

[7:09] <tntexplosivesltd> oho okay, if you say so >.>
[7:11] <bikcmp> tearsintherain: 01:10:05 -!- tearsintherain [561ec4a1@gateway/web/freenode/ip.86.30.196.161]
[7:11] <bikcmp> you are using freenode's webchat gateway
[7:11] <bikcmp> a web based service
[7:11] <tearsintherain> bikcmp: your point?
[7:11] <bikcmp> that isn't a client in my opinion
[7:12] <tearsintherain> course it is
[7:12] <bikcmp> hm
[7:12] <bikcmp> not a locally run client
[7:13] <tearsintherain> "qwebirc is a fast, easy to use, free and open source IRC client designed by and originally just for the QuakeNet IRC network"
[7:13] <bikcmp> hm.
[7:14] <bikcmp> trying to find a definite definition to 'irc client'
[7:14] <tntexplosivesltd> not a silly childish web interface?
[7:14] <bikcmp> it's loosely defined
[7:14] <bikcmp> tearsintherain: the thing is
[7:14] <bikcmp> with qwebirc
[7:15] <hotwings> client software is a way for a user to send/receive data stored on a server
[7:15] <tntexplosivesltd> I prefer to not use them
[7:15] <bikcmp> you don't have a direct connection to the server.
[7:15] <bikcmp> it's you -> webchat -> irc.
[7:15] <tntexplosivesltd> they lack a lot of features I like
[7:15] <bikcmp> unless you're using some flash/java stuff
[7:15] <tearsintherain> of course it's local, it's javascript
[7:15] <hotwings> he is certainly using a client.. its just not local
[7:15] <bikcmp> tearsintherain: it kind of is, but isn't
[7:15] <bikcmp> tearsintherain: you're connected to the webchat server
[7:15] <bikcmp> not the irc server
[7:15] <bikcmp> if you get what i mean
[7:15] <tearsintherain> so?
[7:15] <bikcmp> so what
[7:16] <tntexplosivesltd> yeah, javascript
[7:16] <tntexplosivesltd> brilliant...
[7:16] <tearsintherain> javascript is clientside
[7:16] <bikcmp> it is, yes
[7:16] <bikcmp> but the operations you do are serverside
[7:17] <bikcmp> i'm trying to find something which might be able to explain it better than i can
[7:17] <tearsintherain> qwebirc is an irc client. Do you disagree with that statement?
[7:17] <bikcmp> hm.
[7:17] <bikcmp> well.
[7:17] <bikcmp> i define an irc client as an application which is able to directly connect to an irc server.
[7:17] <hotwings> it is a web-based client, run within a browser.
[7:18] <bikcmp> qwebirc is connecting to a gateway connecting to a web gateway
[7:18] <bikcmp> and the web gateway connecting to a irc server.
[7:18] <bikcmp> so, no.
[7:18] <tntexplosivesltd> how about children and people who don't know how to computer use web gateways
[7:18] <hotwings> it most certainly is an irc client, client, bla
[7:18] <bikcmp> well
[7:18] <bikcmp> it depends on how you define irc client.
[7:19] <tearsintherain> tntexplosivesltd: What's your point?
[7:19] <hotwings> there is no grey area for "irc client"
[7:20] <tntexplosivesltd> tearsintherain: they you are one of those
[7:20] <bikcmp> hotwings: well
[7:20] <tntexplosivesltd> * that
[7:20] <bikcmp> hotwings: i define it as this: an application that is able to connect to an irc server directly.
[7:20] <bikcmp> open a socket to an irc server.
[7:20] <bikcmp> qwebirc doesn't do that.
[7:21] <tearsintherain> tntexplosivesltd: What makes you think that? I have a fully functioning alternative called xchat, but I choose to use this.
[7:21] <hotwings> theres no rule that says a client must connect directly to a server
[7:21] <bikcmp> hotwings: that's how /i/ define it
[7:21] <hotwings> a client is simply a means for a user to communicate with a server. how it does that is completely irrelevent
[7:22] * bikcmp shrugs
[7:22] <bikcmp> haha
[7:22] <tntexplosivesltd> tearsintherain: because why would anyone use a web interface over a real client
[7:22] <tntexplosivesltd> I don't understand it
[7:22] <tearsintherain> tntexplosivesltd: convenience
[7:22] <bikcmp> hotwings: i /personally/ define an *IRC* client
[7:22] <bikcmp> as a application that opens a socket to an irc server.
[7:22] <bikcmp> qwebirc does not do that.
[7:22] <bikcmp> for the end user.
[7:22] <tearsintherain> tntexplosivesltd: It's the same reason why some browsers bundle ftp functionality
[7:22] <bikcmp> the backend does.
[7:22] <tntexplosivesltd> ???_???
[7:23] <tntexplosivesltd> but it's much much more limited compared to a real client
[7:23] <tearsintherain> how so?
[7:23] <tntexplosivesltd> or do you not really go on other channels?
[7:23] <tearsintherain> I can type /join
[7:23] <tntexplosivesltd> as in you personally day to day
[7:24] <tntexplosivesltd> can you connect to other nervers?
[7:24] <tearsintherain> tntexplosivesltd: Have you not tried it?
[7:24] <tntexplosivesltd> * servers
[7:24] <tntexplosivesltd> I have
[7:24] <tearsintherain> tntexplosivesltd: freenode suits my needs
[7:24] <tntexplosivesltd> once
[7:24] <tearsintherain> tntexplosivesltd: I used to use operanet, but not anymore.
[7:24] <hotwings> if he likes using a web-based irc client, i dont see the problem
[7:25] <tearsintherain> or she
[7:25] <tntexplosivesltd> hotwings: I am establishing the use case =)
[7:25] <tearsintherain> but really he
[7:25] <tntexplosivesltd> in some cases it makes sense to use a web client
[7:25] <tearsintherain> Well there you go
[7:25] <tntexplosivesltd> well, there's no disadvantage
[7:26] <[deXter]> Well, I definitely see a huge difference of speed.
[7:26] <hotwings> the only thing that matters to him is _his_ use case though
[7:27] <[deXter]> Web clients are really laggy on my computer, compared to a dedicated client like XChat
[7:27] <[deXter]> plus there are tons and tons of advantages
[7:27] <tearsintherain> The only annoyance is the captcha, but that doesn't bother me.
[7:27] <[deXter]> like automatic reconnect, the ability to use a BNC.. customization
[7:27] <[deXter]> scripts
[7:27] <[deXter]> themes
[7:27] <Crenn-NAS> irssi ftw ;D
[7:27] <tntexplosivesltd> tearsintherain: and client-side scripts
[7:27] <[deXter]> multi-server connectivity
[7:27] <[deXter]> And.. SPEED
[7:27] <tntexplosivesltd> which some people really hate
[7:27] <tearsintherain> why would you need autoconnect if you're not planning to stick around 24/7?

[7:32] <[deXter]> tearsintherain, Well there you go. I'm on nearly 30 channels on Freenode alone.. I'm also connected to three other servers.
[7:32] <tntexplosivesltd> [deXter]: I modified the irssi nickcolor script to colour the lines of chat too
[7:32] <[deXter]> O.o
[7:32] <tntexplosivesltd> it's so good
[7:32] <[deXter]> tearsintherain, colored nicks help you track conversations
[7:32] <BenO> tearsintherain, if someone is trolling via a web client, banning their username isn't enough, as they'll just rejoin with a different one. Most Ops just take out the host as that is quickest
[7:33] <[deXter]> ^
[7:33] <[deXter]> In fact, it's the VERY reason why Freenode banned Mibbit.
[7:33] <Crenn-NAS> tearsintherain: I do, as it doesn't 'cost' anything to be online and means that anytime I want, anywhere in the world, I can just jump in without guessing what the conversation is about
[7:33] <tntexplosivesltd> yeah, we ban the use of major web irc clients on our server =O

[7:33] <tearsintherain> [deXter]: You'll never guess the host I'm using

[7:34] <[deXter]> tearsintherain, Yes, I know that. I was talking about Mibbit.
[7:34] <tearsintherain> If freenode hate web clients so much why would they provide one?
[7:34] <[deXter]> tearsintherain, did you know that freenode infact launched webchat.freenode.net, *because* they banned Mibbit?
[7:34] <[deXter]> And legit users wanted a way to IRC from their work / school etc..
[7:35] <tntexplosivesltd> why do they provide their own over other existing ones?
[7:35] <tntexplosivesltd> ninja;d
[7:35] <tntexplosivesltd> * 'd

[7:57] <Crenn-NAS> My phone has a physical keyboard as well
[7:57] <Guest96135> you said tablet
[7:57] <Crenn-NAS> Touch screen keyboards are all awful
[7:58] <Crenn-NAS> Guest96135: Tablet with keyboard
[7:58] <Guest96135> impossible

[8:00] <Crenn-NAS> In what way do they suck?
[8:00] <Guest96135> Overpriced
[8:00] <Crenn-NAS> Just curious btw
[8:00] <Guest96135> The nexus tablet should change things up though
[8:00] <Crenn-NAS> In Australia all things are overpriced
[8:01] <Crenn-NAS> iPads, even more so
[8:01] <Guest96135> Crenn-NAS: And there are virtually no dedicated android tablet apps compared to apples
[8:01] <Crenn-NAS> Guest96135: I don't see that as a problem

[8:01] <Guest96135> Crenn-NAS: Why? Wouldn't you want an app designed with a tablet interface in mind? Rather than a phone?
[8:02] <Crenn-NAS> When I leave here, I can use the same app on my phone with no issues
[8:02] <Guest96135> Yeah but a phone and a tablet are designed to do different things
[8:02] <Crenn-NAS> The app works fine on both devices
[8:03] <hotwings> im not a fan of tablets
[8:03] <Crenn-NAS> Agreed, one to fool around with and make calls, and the other to just fool around with
[8:03] <Crenn-NAS> hotwings: Neither am I
[8:03] <hotwings> im sure all the people who just listen to music, email, and screw around on google like them though
[8:03] <Crenn-NAS> For all purposes, I don't like the tablet, but it does have it's advaantages
[8:04] <Guest96135> I think a tablet would be extremely valuable just for the ability to watch video in bed without an awkward laptop position
[8:04] <Crenn-NAS> hotwings: I basically use the tablet for email, basic web browsing, and twitter
[8:05] <Crenn-NAS> And maybe the odd youtube video
[8:05] <Crenn-NAS> Not enough for me to justify buying one
[8:05] <Crenn-NAS> The main thing I like about the tablet is that it can be always on
[8:05] <Guest96135> Web browsing is still very much a mouse experience.. links and buttons are just too small for pudgy fingers and thumbs
[8:05] <Crenn-NAS> With my netbook, can't really do that
[8:06] <Guest96135> Crenn-NAS: Course you can.
[8:06] <Crenn-NAS> Guest96135: Agreed, although this laptop has a touchpad ;D
[8:06] <Guest96135> Crenn-NAS: Stick a netbook on standby and it will last just as long
[8:06] <Crenn-NAS> Guest96135: Not with the same battery life I can't
[8:06] <Crenn-NAS> Guest96135: But it means it's 'off' ;P
[8:06] <Crenn-NAS> It's not always on in the same sense
[8:06] <Guest96135> standby isn't off
[8:07] <Guest96135> everything is still in ram
[8:07] <Guest96135> but nearly everything else is off
[8:07] <Crenn-NAS> Guest96135: Will it recieve emails during standby?
[8:07] <Guest96135> Crenn-NAS: No, but neither can your tablet.
[8:07] <Crenn-NAS> Actually it does ;P
[8:07] <Guest96135> Crenn-NAS: It would have to periodically wake itself up
[8:07] <Guest96135> And check
[8:07] <Guest96135> And then alert you
[8:07] <Crenn-NAS> Yep
[8:08] <Crenn-NAS> And it does
[8:08] <Guest96135> It's not so different from a netbook

[8:11] <Crenn-NAS> Was it, I can't remember

[9:44] <solarbaby> and I'm white
[9:44] <Guest96135> I don't want to be red
[9:44] <solarbaby> tzarc: do you like the script?
[9:45] <tzarc> like I said, I'm using mirc so it's no use to me :P
[9:45] <solarbaby> woops
[9:45] <tzarc> wrote an equivalent though based on username hash

[9:47] <solarbaby> tzarc: thats the best looking mirc i've ever seen
[9:47] <tzarc> well, I wrote the script :P
[9:47] <tzarc> I would use consolas, but I had fixed-width fonts for anything but code
[9:47] <tzarc> hate*

[9:49] <tzarc> so now everything changes
[9:49] <tzarc> oh well
[9:50] <solarbaby> i need a notice please
[9:51] <solarbaby> just re arranged my hilight window
[9:51] <Guest96135> no notice for you
[9:51] <solarbaby> i could really use one
[9:51] <Guest96135> tough
[9:51] <solarbaby> solarbaby: I'm noticing myself

[9:53] <huene> hilight window sounds like irssi :)
[9:53] <solarbaby> I've got a 6 line box on top of my screen and all notices go in there
[9:53] <solarbaby> huene: yes it is
[9:53] <huene> great :)
[9:53] <solarbaby> huene: I'm new to it, just trying to make it home
[9:53] <huene> well, hilight window is a very good idea
[9:54] <Guest96135> highlight?
[9:54] <solarbaby> huene: so far I'm very pleased
[9:54] <solarbaby> next I think I should figure out how the away messages get handled, and set up some sort of auto away
[9:55] <Guest96135> auto away is for fags
[9:55] <Guest96135> real men type /away when they leave and /back when they return
[9:55] <solarbaby> hmmm
[9:55] <solarbaby> guess it wasn't that important
[9:56] <solarbaby> i don't think the command /away did anything at all
[9:56] <huene> it does
[9:56] <huene> look at the bottom status line

[9:56] <huene> there's green (zZzZ) beside your nick (and its modes)
[9:56] <Guest96135> fuck you FACEFOX-DOT-COM
[9:57] <huene> and the away message is displayed to someone who sends you msg or /whois
[9:57] <solarbaby> huene: yeah I don't see that zZzZ anywhere on my status bar
[9:57] <huene> you need to set a message.
[9:58] <huene> only typing "/away" will unset away status
[9:58] <solarbaby> Oh There we go. the message did it
[9:58] <huene> try "/away i'm not here at the moment"
[9:58] <huene> ok :)
[9:59] <solarbaby> and then how does /back or /unaway work?

[10:00] <solarbaby> ah i guess I just type /away again
[10:04] <huene> yes
[10:04] <huene> without any parameter
[10:05] <Guest96135> don't do it more than 20 times though without a /part in between otherwise beetlejuice will get you
[10:06] <huene> are you sure?
[10:06] <Guest96135> no
[10:06] <huene> i normally never part (i have irssi running constantly on my server in screen)

[12:00] <Iota> I've just made a file called "-i" how do I delete it or move it? I can't rememebr.
[12:02] <jaxdahl> did you try rm '-i'
[12:02] <jaxdahl> or rm '\-i'
[12:02] <Iota> Yup, neither work.
[12:03] <jzaw> mayebe rm ./\-i
[12:03] <jzaw> is -i the only file there?
[12:03] <Iota> That worked, jzaw. Thanks.
[12:04] <jzaw> :)
[12:04] <jzaw> cool
[12:04] <jzaw> looks strange when you start escaping characters doesnt it
[12:04] <Hydrazine> I remeber once creating a directory named "~"
[12:04] <Iota> Playing it safe, Was did "mv ./\-i new_file" first, then rm'd it.
[12:04] <Iota> Lol, Hydrazine .
[12:05] <jzaw> hehe
[12:05] <jzaw> and i bet it was owned by root only ;)

[12:15] <Iota> ADDR=$1
[12:15] <Iota> You parse a URL into the script.
[12:16] <Iota> Saving the web page/song/whatever as the name after the # in the URL. It's very site specific.

[14:09] <dpiesse> Anyone had any luck getting a game controller working on a pi?
[14:09] <SpeedEvil> bluetooth + wii should be like it is on any other platform
[14:10] <Davespice> okay, I've just tested Quake 3 multiplayer, its fine and works out of the box with hosts running on Windows#
[14:10] <SpeedEvil> Woo!
[14:10] <exfileme> coo
[14:10] <dpiesse> Ok... Thats the easy one though... Xbox 360 is the grail
[14:10] <NucWin> tbh i was thinking about booting my pc up and pretending its a pi so i can run around you all at 3Million FPS
[14:11] <exfileme> lol
[14:11] <danieldaniel> lol
[14:11] <Davespice> if anyone knows a way to make Quake 3 sound work via Alsa please let me know
[14:12] <Davespice> having sound with it would be mint! ;)

[15:46] <Matttt> Hello there :)
[15:46] <D34TH> do you have a router after the hub?
[15:47] <D34TH> benzeman?
[15:48] <Hopsy> how much sectors does have an hdd normally?
[15:48] <benzeman> sorry - no I don't...
[15:48] <benzeman> Hopsy: depends on the capacity of the hdd and the sector size
[15:48] <D34TH> heh needs moar dmz
[15:48] <Hopsy> 149 gb benzeman
[15:48] <Hopsy> ow sorry, its 160 gb
[15:48] <D34TH> hopsy got a model number?
[15:49] <Hopsy> WD
[15:49] <Hopsy> uhmm
[15:49] <benzeman> what's the sector size? total size / sector size = number of sectors :)

[15:50] <Hopsy> I dont hope there are 312576705 sectors :S
[15:50] <benzeman> it says how many sectors :)
[15:50] <benzeman> yeah, that number... :(
[15:51] <Hopsy> and it scanned 52?!?!?!
[15:51] <benzeman> why, is it very slow...
[15:51] <Hopsy> in 4 hours
[15:51] <Hopsy> omg
[15:51] <benzeman> hmm, that does seem very slow...
[15:51] <Hopsy> this will take me like 5 years
[15:51] <D34TH> i think the windows tool, beats that in speed
[15:51] <Hopsy> does anyone know an other tool?
[15:52] <Hopsy> I tried spinrite
[15:52] <benzeman> haha :) but all the ones it's scanned are bad sectors...
[15:52] <Hopsy> thats not good I think?

[17:38] <BenO> flaushy, It's unlikely to work without being ported to use OpenGL ES 2.0 rather than OpenGL
[17:38] <BenO> Whether that has been done or not, I've no idea
[17:38] <flaushy> ok
[17:38] <cand> it's fairly vanilla ioq3
[17:39] <flaushy> q3 server does not run on my vps :/
[17:39] <cand> given the engine is already ported, only the shiny effects (bloom etc) wouldn't work
[17:39] <D34TH> i wonder if i could get it running on my vps
[17:39] <NucWin> im still trying that flaushy trashed one vpn moved on to another
[17:39] <NucWin> ooh D34TH your still here

[17:40] <NucWin> once to laptop but wanted on other server and was faster than upload to download again
[17:40] <NucWin> then i acciently deleted it
[17:40] <NucWin> then i busted the vm so move to my other vm at my friends house

[18:24] <flaushy> i ll put it on the pi soon
[18:24] <flaushy> and give you access as well
[18:24] <hotwings> order an rpi?... you believe in miracles? :)
[18:24] <mkopack> convolution: because the first batch had a bug (wrong Ethernet connector installed by the factory), and then they had to go through CE/FCC testing before mass production could start
[18:25] <mkopack> convolution: which meant that it wasn't until like 2 weeks ago that they were able to start really pumping them out on the assembly line in numbers.
[18:25] <convolution> mkopack, and when i can buy it?
[18:25] <BenO> mkopack, don't forget that they only had enough initial investment to buy and manufacture 10k boards
[18:25] <IT_Sean> I would guess that the raspi should be. In steady supply by late summer.
[18:26] <mkopack> another 8000 are getting shipped out next week, and at least another 12,000 (probably more like 20000 since that 12k number came from only one of the two manufacturers) 2 weeks after that
[18:26] <mkopack> convolution: where are you ?
[18:26] <dmsuse> i could make 12k in 4 weeks lol

[18:27] <mkopack> convolution: so contact your local Farnell or RS branch, register interest. When they get to you on the queue, they'll let you know and you can order???
[18:27] <mkopack> The problem is, the longer you wait to register interest, the farther back in the queue you are, the longer you're going to have to wait to getit
[18:28] * IT_Sean joined the queue a couple of weeks ago
[18:28] <flaushy> IT_Sean: you have yours?
[18:28] <mkopack> Farnell has said all orders that were placed before April 18 would be shipped out before the end of June. Anything after that won't be until ed of July
[18:28] <IT_Sean> flaushy: No.
[18:28] <convolution> is better farnell or rs?
[18:29] <mkopack> convolution: the fact is, there is WAY more demand than there are units to go around right now, so we're ALL in the same boat of just having to register interest and wait for our turn in line to come up. Deal with it.
[18:29] <mkopack> Eh, personally I think Farnell has been doing a better job with it, but others like RS. Up to you

[18:31] <dmsuse> just wait for the allwinner a10, half the price and double the speed and will probably arrive sooner than the pi :P
[18:31] <flaushy> and if you consider a huge bulk will have ordered on launch
[18:32] <mkopack> I'm HOPEFUL I'll be in the next 8000 next week, but if not, I should most definitely be in the 12,000 batch 2 weeks later
[18:33] <mkopack> There's also the issue that only so many are getting out to each region, so people who ordered after you from another region might get theirs before you because more units get allocated to fulfilling orders in that other region..

[18:51] <mkopack> Well, everyone has their favorite??? I prefer Arduino, but the nice thing about the Pi is that it has the power to perform more complex things like A* path planning or even some computer vision stuff. And then it can communicate with your uC of choice to tell it what commands to execute to control motors and such...

[18:52] <flaushy> insert diff sdcard, and all is great again
[18:52] <mkopack> For instance - Use your uC to read sensors and drive motors, communicate over serial to the Pi, let the Pi do interpretation of that sensor data, determine where to go, communicate back "Drive the right motor"
[18:52] <mkopack> yup
[18:52] <mkopack> I plan to give ROS a go on the Pi as soon as I get it

[18:54] <mkopack> The nice thing about ROS is that it's TOTALLY distributed in nature - You have 1 central hub node that does all the bookkeeping (yellow pages and shared data blackboard) and you then run different processing nodes on as many CPU's as you want - all on one, or split up among different processors

[18:55] <flaushy> hmm nice
[18:55] <flaushy> sounds a bit liek barrelfish
[18:56] <mkopack> So, I could use 1 RPi to talk to the Arduino to get the sensor data, and post that to ROS. Use the Pandaboard to do Computer Vision stuff off a Webcam, and use a 2nd Pi to do the A* path planning stuff, and they all tie together through ROS and TCPIP.
[18:56] <zleap> mkopack, gordon from the dclug has linked a ardino with a raspPI
[18:57] <mkopack> No one of those processors has the grunt to do it all, but having all 3 means you can split the work up and centralize the individual functions

[18:58] <mkopack> Did they use SPI interface to get them talking
[18:58] <zleap> not sure
[18:58] <mkopack> That or just straight serial would be the obvious ways
[18:59] <BenO> mkopack, do the new Uno's come with a normal serial connection? or is it all usb serial?
[18:59] <flaushy> and gone :)
[18:59] <NucWin> argh taking ages to download the point release files for windows so i can test this server lol
[18:59] <mkopack> I think it's just USB serial, but you can get normal serial using a couple of the pins.
[18:59] <ReggieUK> mkopack, sounds a bit like my plan with the pi to palm off certain jobs that don't particularly need to be on the same machine

[19:01] <BenO> ReggieUK, There is a zif connector on the board that apparently connects to a webcam
[19:01] <BenO> they are talking about bringing this out at some point (AFAIK)
[19:01] <ReggieUK> right now I'm really talking about standard webcams but that would be interesting about the zif connector, depending on exactly what you could plug into it
[19:01] <mkopack> BenO: He's talking more about normal UVC webcams attached via USB
[19:02] <mkopack> They're talking about having 2 different ZIF connector cams that could be connected.

[19:03] <BenO> Ah k
[19:04] <ReggieUK> mkopack, right now I'm talking about webcams but I'd be seriously interested in CCD/CMOS interfaces on the PI
[19:04] <mkopack> the CCD/CMOS interface on the Pi will require the GPU blob to support it
[19:04] <mkopack> Which isn't there yet
[19:05] <NucWin> there are some webcams in the hardware list i think so someone must have tried them
[19:05] <mkopack> As far as the USB webcams, see my comment above
[19:06] <ReggieUK> I take it it's just a case of compiling the v4l stuff for the pi to get that side of things up and running?
[19:06] <ReggieUK> and appropriate drivers
[19:06] <mkopack> Would assume, yes
[19:07] <mkopack> UVC webcams should work without special drivers as long as V4L is in the Kernel (as I understand it)
[19:07] <ReggieUK> for the cams I intend to use (initially) I believe there are already drivers
[19:07] <ReggieUK> definitely for one but it's not so much a webcam, so that will be used later
[19:08] <RITRedbeard> standard webcams work well if they're UVC compatible (I was going to mount HD-5000 to aeral platform, worked well under bifferboard during tests)

[19:21] <mkopack> And Boston and Pitt are a long shot - would only be to go for a PhD

[19:28] <mkopack> Yeah, and my sister and her husband and my nephew live there??? but they live in the middle of GD nowhere in SW colorado. I'd have to do Denver or Boulder

[19:31] <mkopack> 2/3 of the people working for that company should have been fired??? and the same amount of work would have been done
[19:31] <RITRedbeard> Or mainframe stuff?
[19:31] <mkopack> I was up there to get a system working and transitioned over to Hosting
[19:32] <RITRedbeard> The people in Ricoh seemed pretty solid, most of them ex-blues and old timers.
[19:32] <RITRedbeard> Especially our IT guys.
[19:32] <RITRedbeard> Or as I liked to think of them: mainframe wizards
[19:33] <mkopack> Yeah, there were a TON of them in my group at IBM - the problem was, they were CLUELESS with PCs....
[19:34] <RITRedbeard> yeah
[19:34] <mkopack> It was a very strange dichotomy at the time - I joined IBM Global Services in 1995. Client Server + OS/2 were the big things at the time, Lotus Notes was just starting to come in, etc. There were the older people who were 100% Mainframe and just COULD NOT get PC's. Then there were the younger ten people like me (I was one of the first new hires my dept had in YEARS) who had NO IDEA how to do anything on the Mainframe and didn't see
[19:34] <mkopack> point in them anymore.
[19:35] <mkopack> Those two groups did NOT mix well
[19:35] <RITRedbeard> OH GOD
[19:35] <RITRedbeard> don't say lotus notes

[19:36] <mkopack> Notes itself isn't bad. It's that people try to shoehorn it into doing things it was NEVER meant to do
[19:36] <RITRedbeard> Yes, like, having project manager or someone add a group under this thing...
[19:36] <RITRedbeard> it's like... wait, what?
[19:36] <mkopack> All the web stuff they put on was just a damn shoehorn and it's FUGLY for that
[19:36] <RITRedbeard> yeah it looks like something from 1995
[19:37] <RITRedbeard> but that's probably a complement since dealing with MVS and such is like dealing with dinosaurs... your home directory is just a linear vsam!
[19:37] <mkopack> I actually worked on a couple web site content management systems that were based around Lotus Notes??? The customers would enter their site content (stories) through a Notes Interface, and then would hit a button and our system would "publish" the content into an HTML template to produce a static page and load it on the site.
[19:38] <RITRedbeard> I agree with your critique though; the guys I worked with were really good at what they did, the problem wasn't the software but the software in their brains
[19:38] <RITRedbeard> cobwebs
[19:38] <mkopack> NYSE, Univision, the Masters (golf), AMICA (insurance) all were sites we did that way

[20:11] <mkopack> "Opening up the USB reader and using an oscilloscope to probe the sdcard CLK line shows it driving the card at ~50Mhz.
[20:11] <mkopack> Doing the same on the R-Pi onboard slot shows it only driving the card at 10Mhz or 12.5Mhz depending on the card.
[20:11] <mkopack> The kernel driver seems to suggest 20MHz as the maximum, and yet the peripherals data sheet suggests higher speeds could be possible. "

[21:35] <Hydrazine> I suspect that my shift register detects 3.3V as a 0
[21:35] <danieldaniel> that helps
[21:36] <zleap> np
[21:36] <danieldaniel> ok
[21:36] <danieldaniel> so do the pins match up with the order of the wires?
[21:36] <danieldaniel> Left to right?
[21:36] <_av500_> yes
[21:36] <danieldaniel> Ok
[21:36] <danieldaniel> So pin one would be the left one
[21:37] <danieldaniel> like, the furthest left
[21:37] <_av500_> the header would be magic otherwise
[21:37] <danieldaniel> pin 2 would be the next one
[21:37] <danieldaniel> ok
[21:37] <_av500_> or very complicated
[21:37] <danieldaniel> so yeah, now I know that
[21:37] <danieldaniel> BenO: Ok, so now I know

[21:46] <Hexxeh> oh cool
[21:46] <Hexxeh> got time for some testing?
[21:46] <tpresence> sorry, I was away dealing with bs
[21:46] <tpresence> sure
[21:46] <Hexxeh> i'd like to see what happened with that tool
[21:46] <Hexxeh> got a working image again?
[21:46] <tpresence> yep
[21:46] <Hexxeh> okay, so run these commands and give me the output
[21:46] <danieldaniel> aww
[21:46] <danieldaniel> I cut it
[21:46] <tpresence> I dont have the tool on it yet...should I get the tool first?

[21:47] <danieldaniel> wow, the thing won't go into the hole
[21:47] <Hexxeh> nah it's cool, just seeing how things are setup first
[21:47] <danieldaniel> and thats not sexual
[21:47] <tpresence> Im default with some extra packages, thats it...do you need it run as root?
[21:48] <danieldaniel> BenO: its too big
[21:48] <danieldaniel> ill attach a small wire
[21:48] <Hexxeh> tpresence: shouldn't need root for those commands, nope
[21:48] <tpresence> I think its a "git" or remote transfer issue, but thats just a stab in the dark

[23:01] <zleap> from the site,
[23:01] <dmsuse> how does a rpi cost 31?

[23:17] <zleap> BenO, i have played with scratch a little
[23:18] <GPhillips-Sewell> I'm personally not a fan of Scratch.
[23:19] <BenO> zleap, It is a great tool - the colour choices make my eyes bleed, but it is not aimed at me
[23:19] <zleap> i think its aimed at younger children
[23:19] <BenO> I'd rather they get into code properly from the off
[23:19] <BenO> but it's good at giving the widest range an understanding of the basics of procedural programming
[23:19] <GPhillips-Sewell> Yeah, I understand that, but I just don't think it's that necessary.
[23:20] <zleap> as long as they understand what the are doing and learning

[23:20] <BenO> GPhillips-Sewell, Don't forget, it's point-and-click in part for the teachers too, the less confident ones
[23:21] <zleap> stencyl seems one step up from scratch, I think you can see / edit code
[23:21] <GPhillips-Sewell> The way I look at it is that kids today are no different to kids 30 years ago. If kids could learn to program using nothing more than a flashing cursor and a book of some description back then, then why do they need unecessary point-and-click, drag-and-drop interfaces to learn the basic elements of programming today?!
[23:21] <zleap> what about things like codeacademy designed to teach basic javascript
[23:21] * Maccer (~Maccer@199.168.138.175) Quit (Excess Flood)
[23:22] <GPhillips-Sewell> CodeAcademy is, in my opinion, a step in the right direction.
[23:22] <TopherBrink> kids today are vastly different. thats the first error there.
[23:22] <GPhillips-Sewell> How are today's kids any different?
[23:22] <TopherBrink> tech is everywhere already for them
[23:22] <zleap> are they , surely given similar tools they can still learn by doing and experimenting
[23:23] <zleap> TopherBrink, this is why they want to teach kids coding, they are surrounded by tech, but are not taught how to make that tech do what they want
[23:23] <TopherBrink> thats because the complexity has moved on too
[23:24] <zleap> well coding hasn't really changed much, variables are still the same there were 30 years ago I think so the terminology is still there
[23:24] <TopherBrink> still have to learn the basics but the basics are not the same
[23:25] <TopherBrink> try coding direct to the hardware the same way you could on a spectrum from a modern desktop
[23:25] <TopherBrink> now try teaching kids who have much more to do that

[23:26] <TopherBrink> the former.
[23:26] <zleap> how old were you when you started
[23:26] <TopherBrink> but then the argument just died anyway
[23:26] <TopherBrink> "start with something simpler" is what these tools are doing
[23:27] <TopherBrink> it is exactly that.
[23:27] <BenO> http://codingforkids.org/wiki/Main_Page I'll just leave this here along with http://www.computingatschool.org.uk/
[23:27] <GPhillips-Sewell> There's "simpler" and then there's going too far, in my opinion.
[23:27] <BenO> and of course: http://youngrewiredstate.org/
[23:28] <BenO> Logo was pretty simple
[23:28] <TopherBrink> it was
[23:28] * phantoxeD (~destroy@a95-92-89-24.cpe.netcabo.pt) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[23:29] <BenO> One of the simpler syntaxes, few (3?) datatypes, etc
[23:29] <GPhillips-Sewell> And Logo didn't have a silly drag'n'drop interface. It was a simple introduction to some of the fundamental concepts of programming. And I think it's a good way to get started.
[23:29] <TopherBrink> but which is more visually interesting to a "kid" these days? a screen full of code or an inviting friendly concept.
[23:30] <zleap> we need to be careful we don't fall in to tejh one size fits all trap, some people may prefer scatch and others may find they get on better with code different people learn differently
[23:30] <TopherBrink> one that encourages experimentation rather than punishes failure
[23:30] <BenO> The key stated reason for the code block interface is to avoid "Syntax Error" type things
[23:30] * phantoneD is now known as phantoxeD
[23:30] <TopherBrink> precisely my point on why this is better

[23:32] <BenO> To them, the machine was maliciously dumb
[23:32] <zleap> you soon learn how to find the errors
[23:33] <BenO> There is a difference to educating kids to be computer scientists and educating them to get the basics

[23:37] <danieldaniel> Yeah
[23:37] <TopherBrink> the people who dont know
[23:38] <zleap> you will always have one or two people ahead of the class, what we need to do is give them something else to do and engage with them
[23:38] <danieldaniel> it's for the people who don't know how better real programming is
[23:38] <BenO> I think the UI is godawful, but it's not for me, or kids that thought as I did then
[23:38] <danieldaniel> zleap: My school didn't do anything buy excel and scratch
[23:38] <danieldaniel> Except for the gifted kids thing
[23:39] <plugwash> It's the classic problem, kids in school are grouped by age not by their ability in what is being taught so kids who have leant something at home can be MILES ahead of the rest of the class and therefore will find it boring :(
[23:39] <danieldaniel> They basically let us do anything we could do, and challenged us
[23:39] <danieldaniel> Yep
[23:39] <BenO> danieldaniel, That is probably not going to change for many schools

[23:48] <danieldaniel> They have a bunch of programming stuff

[23:51] <danieldaniel> what were you talking about theN?
[23:51] <danieldaniel> oh
[23:51] <zleap> i was saying generally, if you work with older kids at these camps then you see what the older kids can do, and it inspires you further as you can see what can be done

[23:54] <D34TH> quake3 for everyone

[23:55] <ReggieUK> I think the internet should be a big game changer this time round + the advent of PCs helping too

[23:55] <danieldaniel> zleap: Which group?
[23:55] <danieldaniel> zleap: The one that someone gave the link to?
[23:55] <zleap> not sure if this analagy is similar, i used to ach tag rugby to 6/7 yearolds, by the time these kids are under 11s (year 6 at school) they are doing full contact at the club, but the schools are still stuck on tag, and have to teach tag, (flag to those of u in the US)
[23:56] <ReggieUK> I think the problem with lack of enthusiasm is down to ICT
[23:56] <ReggieUK> there is nothing to aspire to

[23:56] <zleap> danieldaniel, no i meatn the one i am settting up
[23:56] <danieldaniel> zleap: Where is it located?
[23:56] <ReggieUK> how to be a manager or an office monkey
[23:56] <danieldaniel> UK?
[23:56] <zleap> as i said kids like you so if there are 1 or 2 kids in a school really interested it gets them in touch with other kids from other schools
[23:56] <zleap> danieldaniel, yes
[23:57] <danieldaniel> aww
[23:57] <ReggieUK> but if you teach kids from an early age that they can make and do stuff with computers then they'll provide their own inspirations
[23:57] <zleap> well thats what we hope
