[0:17] <hobo> anybody play with xbees and raspberry pi?
[0:20] <s5fs> hobo: not yet, i've been using bluetooth for short distances but do have interest in xbee. what's your experience been like so far?
[0:21] <scummos> xbee sounds like it used x rays for communication
[0:21] <scummos> which sounds fun
[0:21] <scummos> but something tells me this isn't an accurate guess
[0:21] <s5fs> scummos: not quite. it actually uses a series of directional lazers mounted on a variety of birds.
[0:21] <s5fs> lasers. ugh.
[0:21] <scummos> isn't there an RFC for that
[0:21] <s5fs> there is a pigeon protocol
[0:21] <scummos> ah yeah
[0:22] <scummos> this http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1149
[0:22] <piney_> avian carrier
[0:22] <s5fs> man, that was a pretty hardcore geek-check
[0:22] <scummos> hm, what was?
[0:22] <s5fs> quoting obscure phony rfcs
[0:22] <scummos> lol
[0:22] <piney_> i like the april fools RFC's
[0:22] <scummos> wait it's an april fool
[0:23] <scummos> you destroyed my view of the world
[0:23] <Armand> "1 April 1990"
[0:23] <s5fs> haha!!
[0:23] <Armand> Duhh... :P
[0:23] <scummos> pah
[0:23] <scummos> i tought it was totally honest.
[0:23] <scummos> s/honest/serious(g
[0:23] <ccssnet> s/tought/thought/
[0:23] <piney_> someone did it. got ~ 50% packet loss on pings
[0:23] <scummos> s|(|g
[0:23] <Armand> "The carriers have an intrinsic collision avoidance
[0:23] <Armand> system, which increases availability."
[0:23] <scummos> ccssnet: uh yes sorry, thanks for correcting ;)
[0:23] * Bhaal (~bhaal@freenode/staff-emeritus/bhaal) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:23] * scummos is not a native english speaker
[0:24] <Armand> It is funny. ^_^
[0:24] <scummos> and this thought taught th-... stuff is especially confusing
[0:24] <s5fs> scummos: what's terrible is that your english is better than many non-natives.
[0:24] <scummos> heh ;)
[0:24] <s5fs> yes, english is mean like that. read read reed
[0:25] <scummos> well, my mother tongue is german, and I can pretty well imagine it's quite a bit worse
[0:25] <s5fs> yes, my german is poor
[0:25] <piney_> scummos, i wouldn't of known you weren't a native english speaker. you speak better than some native speakers. :)
[0:25] * Armand understands English and Bad English. :P
[0:25] <scummos> piney_: thanks :)
[0:25] <s5fs> I specialize in restaurant dialects
[0:25] <s5fs> (ie, i learn enough to order things)
[0:26] <ccssnet> hah
[0:26] <scummos> that sounds like 90% of what you need of another country's language
[0:26] <s5fs> the only spanish i know is taco truck
[0:26] * plugwash has always wanted to open a document with "The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 3251"
[0:26] <scummos> taco... truck?
[0:26] <plugwash> and see if anyone notices
[0:27] <scummos> this RFC does not have to do anything with those words, does it?
[0:27] <s5fs> plugwash: nobody reads my documentation, i'm certain of it
[0:27] <hobo> s5fs: kind of annoying
[0:27] <ccssnet> s5fs: link, it will be read right now
[0:27] <hobo> and now i jsut got kernel panic
[0:27] <scummos> there's people who read documentation? I thought (sic!) everybody was just asking stupid questions
[0:28] <s5fs> hobo: haha! sorry, i hope you get it working. i'm planning on using you as a resource in the future ;-)
[0:28] <plugwash> scummos, RFC 3251 contains the statement "The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "DO", "DON'T", "REQUIRED", "SHALL",
[0:28] <plugwash> "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", "MAY BE"
[0:28] <plugwash> and "OPTIONAL" in this document do not mean anything."
[0:29] <scummos> hahaha, that's hilarious
[0:29] <hobo> s5fs: yeah was just wondering about getting serial with the gpio working
[0:30] <Amadiro> scummos, you might want to read the documentation to the word "sic" :P
[0:30] <scummos> Amadiro: why, I think I know how to use it
[0:30] <Amadiro> scummos, but you spelled "thought" correctly.
[0:30] <scummos> Amadiro: yes
[0:30] <scummos> that's what I wanted to emphasize!
[0:30] <scummos> ;)
[0:30] <s5fs> hobo: i haven't used gpio on the pi yet except for serial console access. i'm just building images right now, learning angstrom.
[0:30] <s5fs> (and systemd)
[0:30] <hobo> ah okay
[0:31] <scummos> I'm using the UART pins to program another ARM processor
[0:31] <scummos> works nicely!
[0:31] <Amadiro> scummos, you put "sic" after a word to highlight that it is *not* spelled correctly (but you don't want to correct it, in order to be faithful to the original text)
[0:31] <Tachyon`> well, any error, not just spelling
[0:31] <scummos> Amadiro: you put "sic" anywhere when you want the reader to spend special attention to what you wrote
[0:31] <scummos> Amadiro: its usage is not restricted to spelling errors, or any kind of errors at all
[0:32] <Tachyon`> sic erat scriptum, thus it is written
[0:32] <scummos> yes
[0:32] * RaycisCharles (GentileBen@cpc20-lutn10-2-0-cust20.9-3.cable.virginmedia.com) Quit ()
[0:32] <Amadiro> scummos, I have never seen it used as a "special attention marker".
[0:32] <scummos> (that's not what it means tough)
[0:33] <scummos> Amadiro: hm, in fact, I haven't seen it used a lot at all...
[0:33] <plugwash> normally it's used when quoting someone to indicate that the mistake was in the original text being quoted
[0:33] <plugwash> rather than a mistake by the person quoting it
[0:33] <Amadiro> It can be found frequently in old-ish translated texts
[0:34] <scummos> plugwash: that's an application I have seen too, yes
[0:34] <scummos> but yes you're right, it's more common for hinting at something that looks like a mistake.
[0:37] * Viper7 (7897d190@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #raspberrypi
[0:37] * FunkyELF (~FunkyELF@99-36-189-64.lightspeed.chrlnc.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:45] <LilSnoop4> what's the best way to install the latest build of openelec.tv on to my sd card from windows?
[0:45] <hobo> low voltage on the supply or feeds from the USB ports can cause unexpected writes to the SD card
[0:46] <hobo> any EEs know if there is a way to change the hardware such that a newer revision can prevent this?
[0:47] * NIN101 (~NIN@p5DD291BB.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) Quit (Quit: NIN101)
[0:47] <plugwash> scummos, iirc you were talking about linux 3.6 a day or so ago
[0:48] <scummos> plugwash: hmm, are you sure? I don't recall
[0:48] <scummos> what do you think I said?
[0:49] * KiltedPi grows nervous as the bearded men begin to talk in assertive tones, causing conflict
[0:50] * plugwash checks his logs, maybe i'm confusing you with someone else
[0:50] <KiltedPi> I found a good place to begin my research into hooking a RaspberryPi into an IP camera.
[0:50] <KiltedPi> Check it out: http://gpio.kaltpost.de/?p=1618
[0:50] <KiltedPi> Its BASH too
[0:50] * thesquib (~thesquib@ Quit (Quit: thesquib)
[0:51] <KiltedPi> Which is just awesome
[0:51] <KiltedPi> I dunno if the CPU on a pi can cope. who knows
[0:51] <KiltedPi> The idea is to use it on outdoor motion sensored cams tho, so it will just be snippets of wildlife at night
[0:51] <KiltedPi> So, black and white media for short periods. could work?
[0:52] <plugwash> scummos, sorry I was mixing you up with twolife
[0:52] <KiltedPi> So wrap up my poor pi's, hook em up to some cheap cams, leave em up some trees, hook in some motion sensors... and badda boom badda bing
[0:54] <KiltedPi> This part : "/dev/video0"
[0:54] <KiltedPi> I'm assuming thats the name of my external camera, how do I discover that tho?
[0:54] <scummos> plugwash: no harm done ;)
[0:55] <KiltedPi> We all have beards here, scummos and plugwash.
[0:55] <KiltedPi> We all...
[0:55] <KiltedPi> Have beards.
[0:55] <KiltedPi> :)
[0:55] <KiltedPi> (Even the women)
[0:55] <KiltedPi> Check out : http://gpio.kaltpost.de/?p=1618
[0:55] <KiltedPi> How would I discover my dev/ name?
[0:55] <KiltedPi> Will it just show up
[0:56] * petersaints (~quassel@a85-138-215-205.cpe.netcabo.pt) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:56] <KiltedPi> I dunno... sod it... All I need to do is buy the IP camera now
[0:56] * Wulf (~Wulf@unaffiliated/wulf) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)

[1:03] * Zarek_away is now known as Zarek_
[1:04] <ngc0202> So I've determined
[1:04] <ngc0202> That my rpi is booting and working
[1:04] <ngc0202> It's just not displaying right
[1:05] <hobo> power supply issue maybe
[1:05] <hobo> do you get junk text?
[1:05] <KiltedPi> ah!
[1:05] <KiltedPi> ngc
[1:05] <KiltedPi> theres a config file there for you to play with. is the screen completely black?
[1:05] * chris_99 (~chris_99@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:05] <KiltedPi> Also, there are three wee lights, on the pi
[1:06] <KiltedPi> so like, OK, PWR, FDX, LNK 10M
[1:06] * nbt (~nbt@unaffiliated/nbt) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:06] <KiltedPi> if OK and PWR are lit up
[1:06] <KiltedPi> you've got an OS working I believe
[1:07] <KiltedPi> The FDX means theres output
[1:07] <KiltedPi> OK means the SD card is accesible
[1:08] <KiltedPi> The others are for ethernet or something
[1:09] <ngc0202> I don't have an OK
[1:09] <KiltedPi> oh dear
[1:09] <KiltedPi> Flash the OS
[1:09] <KiltedPi> (Erase it)
[1:09] <ngc0202> Like
[1:09] <KiltedPi> At least you've got power tho eh!
[1:09] <ngc0202> There's no OK label
[1:09] <KiltedPi> Re-install the operating system.
[1:09] <KiltedPi> Yeah
[1:09] <KiltedPi> The SD card is not accesible
[1:09] <KiltedPi> It takes a minute to install an os anyway
[1:09] <KiltedPi> You've got Raspbian installed?
[1:09] <KiltedPi> on your SD card?
[1:10] <ngc0202> How is this related?
[1:10] <KiltedPi> Well!
[1:10] <KiltedPi> If you think your pi is working, and theres no OK light....
[1:10] <KiltedPi> Its not a display thing :(
[1:10] <ngc0202> I'm not saying OK is not lit up, but none of the lights are labelled OK
[1:10] <KiltedPi> Eh?
[1:10] <KiltedPi> On your RPi?
[1:11] <ngc0202> Yeah
[1:11] <Zarek_> Is there a green light, ngc0202 ?
[1:11] <KiltedPi> On your Rpi-
[1:11] <pksato> led near audio jack, must flash on SD activity.
[1:11] <KiltedPi> In the top right of this image: http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget.com/media/2012/05/05-31-2012dsc0213300-1338512994.jpg
[1:11] <KiltedPi> Yes, what pksato said
[1:11] <KiltedPi> Its not a display thing.
[1:12] <KiltedPi> Your operating system is likely not loaded.
[1:12] <ngc0202> Oh, it's called ACT
[1:12] <KiltedPi> ACT?
[1:12] <KiltedPi> heh
[1:12] <KiltedPi> chinese pi or something?
[1:12] * exobuzz (~buzz@2001:470:9773:0:a598:e3fd:542:fc86) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:12] <pksato> act or ok
[1:12] <KiltedPi> Is it red!
[1:12] <KiltedPi> I WANT!
[1:12] <KiltedPi> :))))
[1:12] <ngc0202> :P no...
[1:12] <KiltedPi> Ah... Have you seen those ones>
[1:13] <KiltedPi> They made them in ted
[1:13] <ngc0202> I've seen pictures, yes :)
[1:13] <Zarek_> ngc0202, is the ACT light on, then?
[1:13] <KiltedPi> right, gtg walk the dog
[1:13] <KiltedPi> Flash OS
[1:13] <ngc0202> Well when I plug it in
[1:13] * KiltedPi is now known as Nbane^afk
[1:13] * Nbane^afk is now known as KiltedPi^afk
[1:13] <ngc0202> The power light goes on, then OK goes on for a couple seconds and goes off
[1:13] <Zarek_> yeah, you need to re-image the SD card by the sounds of it.
[1:13] <ngc0202> then my USB Stick starts flashing wildly (meaning activity)
[1:13] <ngc0202> Oh, I should've mentioned
[1:14] <ngc0202> I have the boot part of Raspbian on the SD
[1:14] <pksato> ngc0202: berryboot?
[1:14] <ngc0202> And the entire thing on the USB
[1:14] <ngc0202> I was trying to use berryboot before
[1:14] <ngc0202> But someone else was helping me and told me to just put the boot part on the SD
[1:15] <ngc0202> My SD card only holds like 120MB or so, that's why
[1:15] <pksato> and, you see berryboot screen?
[1:15] <ngc0202> No
[1:15] <ngc0202> I have so far not been able to get any reaction whatsoever to my screen
[1:15] <pksato> and, HDMI or RCA out?
[1:15] <ngc0202> HDMI
[1:16] <ngc0202> I've been trying tons of things all day
[1:16] * mark_vh is someone else
[1:16] * phorce1_home (~gvl2@pdpc/supporter/active/phorce1) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:16] <ngc0202> hey!
[1:16] <Zarek_> latest firmware/kernel?
[1:16] <ngc0202> It should be
[1:16] <pksato> ok. HDMI can be no easy to make to work,
[1:17] <ngc0202> I have hdmi_safe=1 on the config
[1:17] <Zarek_> if the firmware's recent enough that it gives the "rainbow screen" on bootup, I'd try renaming kernel.img so you just get that screen, and just playing with config.txt until that displays properly
[1:17] <pksato> ngc0202: and no display?
[1:17] <Zarek_> (that's how I got my screen to work properly)
[1:17] <ngc0202> nope
[1:18] <mgottschlag> ngc0202: so you are booting raspbian via usb? then try ssh to see whether it is properly alive at least
[1:18] <pksato> humm.
[1:18] <pksato> wait...
[1:18] <ngc0202> :P
[1:18] <ngc0202> I can't connect it to the internet!
[1:19] <pksato> some tv dont activate HDMI input if no signal. and rpi do same if no hdmi dectectd.
[1:19] <hobo> is it plugged into ethernet?
[1:19] <mark_vh> (for the rest: the idea was to reconstruct the boot-from-usb setup here: http://jonathanmh.com/boot-raspberry-pi-from-a-usb-stick/ but without writing an image to the SD as it is only 120MB. So instead of writing an image all contents of the boot partition were copied from an imaged usb-stick onto the sd card)
[1:19] * jimerickson (~jimericks@pdpc/supporter/active/jimerickson) Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[1:20] <Zarek_> that should work fine. i'd say it's just an HDMI issue
[1:20] <pksato> gordonDrogon: try these options on config.txt hdmi_force_hotplug=1 hdmi_safe=1 hdmi_drive=2
[1:20] <mark_vh> (so basically it's a usb with latest raspbian image, and a sd formatted to fat filesystem with all files from boot partition copied onto it, and an extra root=/dev/sda1 in the cmdline.txt
[1:21] <Zarek_> do you have an RCA cable to test that, just to rule out other things?
[1:21] <pksato> hdmi_drive=2 if display is a TV. and 1 if is a monitor (DVI)
[1:21] * hobo (~hobo@ Quit (Quit: hobo)
[1:22] <pksato> and, config_hdmi_boost=4 (or 7)
[1:23] * jimerickson (~jimericks@pdpc/supporter/active/jimerickson) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:23] <mark_vh> (sorry, i meant to write root=/dev/sda2)
[1:24] <ngc0202> pksato: Do you mean me?
[1:24] <pksato> yes
[1:24] <pksato> ops... nick miss... sorry.
[1:25] <Hopsy> ngc0202: you still didnt succeed?!
[1:25] <ngc0202> ok
[1:25] <ngc0202> Hopsy: No :(
[1:25] <Hopsy> So am I :p
[1:26] <Hopsy> stupid technology
[1:27] * Neozaru (~Neozaru@lau06-7-83-153-112-28.fbx.proxad.net) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:27] <ngc0202> Still nothing :(
[1:27] <ngc0202> But the OS must be working
[1:28] <ngc0202> because my USB stick flashes wildly
[1:28] <pksato> defective RPi, or TV.
[1:28] <ngc0202> meaning lots of I/O
[1:28] <ngc0202> And if I switch the HDMI to my cable box
[1:28] <ngc0202> it works fine
[1:28] * wiiguy (~fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) Quit (Quit: I just broke my connection, but no worries, we can rebuild it. We have the technology.)
[1:29] <pksato> test from RCA composit TV out.
[1:29] <ngc0202> hm?
[1:29] <Hopsy> ngc0202: just but a serial cable!
[1:30] <Hopsy> ngc0202: thats that yellow thing on your board
[1:30] * sphenxes (~sphenxes@91-119-193-142.dynamic.xdsl-line.inode.at) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:30] <Hopsy> you can connect a cable from your tv to your raspberry
[1:30] <ngc0202> I don't think I have a wire for that

[1:45] <malcom2073> So my HDMI doesn't seem to work, all settings either result in "No input" or "Unsupported Input" on my TV (TV isn't broken, 3 other devices all work fine). If I plug in the raspberry pi to a DVI monitor with the hdmi settings set to DVI and it works, does that mean that my pi is good, just incompatible with my TV, or possibly HDMI is indeed broken?

[1:47] <mark_vh> perhaps it is possible to enable ssh, so you can check if the pi boots correctly?
[1:47] <B0101> Hi, how can I check the CPU speed in raspbian?
[1:47] <Opinie> enabling ssh isn't necessary; it's enabled by default, if you're using raspbian
[1:48] <mark_vh> normally you would do that on first boot using raspi-config
[1:48] <malcom2073> on mine, ssh is enabled, that's how I'm able to log in and make changes to the config file to try different values

[1:48] <Opinie> malcom2073: I guess you could fiddle with config.txt, there's an option to boost HDMI, but that probably won't help you

[1:49] <hays> is there anything I should get in addition to the plain raspberry pi
[1:49] <malcom2073> Opinie: I've tried near every combonation of options heh
[1:49] <malcom2073> RCA output works
[1:50] <hays> looks like there are a variety of accessories? any particularly needed?
[1:50] <malcom2073> and HDMI works with DVI mode over an HDMI cable, but it's extremly green and staticy
[1:50] <mark_vh> for hdmi options overview >> http://elinux.org/RPi_config.txt
[1:50] <Opinie> hays: well, you need something to power it up, but if you have suitable power cable then you don't need to buy one
[1:50] <Opinie> or whatever those things are called
[1:51] <pksato> malcom2073: try hdmi_drive=2 on config.txt
[1:51] <malcom2073> pksato: Tried that.
[1:51] <hays> is that just 1A microUSB?
[1:51] <malcom2073> When I say every option, I mean I tried for about four hours yesterday, with almost every different mode, etc.
[1:51] <rideh> hays: yep 1a 5v microusb, an sd card, either eithernet or monitor, mouse, keyboard
[1:51] <malcom2073> Hence my question about a DVI monitor
[1:52] <malcom2073> I'm gonna dig one out here in a bit, but figured I'd ask first if it was worth a shot
[1:52] <pksato> hdmi_force_hotplug=1 ?
[1:52] <hays> rideh: do I need an SDcard receptacle
[1:52] <malcom2073> Yep, that's required to get the "Unsupported input" from my TV, otherwise I just get "No Input"
[1:52] <KiltedPi^afk> negative

[1:52] <malcom2073> Reading edis, it says it supports the mode I'm using too, which is odd.
[1:52] <pksato> hdmi_safe=1 ?
[1:52] <Nbane> on the bottom of the Rpi
[1:52] <malcom2073> pksato: First one I tried.
[1:53] <pksato> hdmi...boost?
[1:53] <Nbane> malcom, do you have an OK light?
[1:53] <malcom2073> 4 and 7
[1:53] <malcom2073> Nbane: The PI works good except HDMI output
[1:53] <Nbane> Or just PWR?
[1:53] <Nbane> kk
[1:53] <pksato> TV dont lik you RPi. :)
[1:53] <malcom2073> I can SSH in, and RCA works
[1:53] <pksato> like
[1:53] <malcom2073> pksato: My TV likes everything else :( lol
[1:53] <Nbane> You need to mess with your tv
[1:53] <hays> is 4GB the maximum size sdcard, or just the most commonly used
[1:54] <Nbane> if you've tried messing with the config.txt
[1:54] * rolleiflex (~rolleifle@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:54] <malcom2073> Nbane: My TV has no options really for HDMI, it's all automatic
[1:54] <Opinie> hays: it isn't the maximum size for sure
[1:54] <mark_vh> ah, found the config.txt file i was looking for: https://raw.github.com/Evilpaul/RPi-config/master/config.txt
[1:54] <Opinie> hays: get the kind you think you'll need, if you plan on storing everything on the SD card, then get a large SD card
[1:54] <Opinie> hays: I personally have gone with just booting from the SD card and keeping all my data on a USB drive
[1:55] <mark_vh> this config.txt has most options listed in it, so that might help in experimenting with hdmi
[1:55] <malcom2073> mark_vh: Yeah that looks a lot like the wiki page
[1:55] <malcom2073> Not seeing any options not listed on the wiki page, but I'll read through it
[1:55] <Opinie> hays: better do some research though, not sure 64 GB SD cards will work, etc..
[1:55] <Nbane> try booting in safe mode whoever it was
[1:56] <Nbane> If it doesn't boot, even in safe-
[1:56] <Nbane> Well, you should maybe re-install your OS
[1:56] <hays> Do I need an ethernet patch cable?
[1:56] <hays> or just regular ethernet cable and switch
[1:56] <Nbane> RJ45
[1:56] <rideh> there is no difference
[1:56] <Nbane> Is the standard
[1:56] <rideh> ^
[1:56] <hays> patch cable has the crossover thing i thought

[1:56] <Iota> Hey.
[1:57] <hays> rx/tx switched around
[1:57] <rideh> rhays nope, crossover is cross over, patch cable just means a cable that joins things :)
[1:57] <Nbane> crossover or straight through wouldnt matter anyway
[1:57] <ShiftPlusOne> hays, any cable is fine, the pi hardware handles it.
[1:57] <Nbane> its all copper

[1:57] <rideh> hays, what are you trying to do
[1:57] <hays> rideh: i don't know yet :)
[1:57] <Nbane> Hays is just curious as to what peripherals he wants
[1:57] <hays> creative inspiration at this point
[1:58] <Nbane> So far-
[1:58] <hays> i may use it as a way to control a coffee roaster
[1:58] <hays> but maybe not... arduino may be better for that
[1:58] <Nbane> I've bought an old 'Video Picture frame'
[1:58] <Nbane> As my display
[1:58] <rideh> hays, you'll want to supply internet to it and have some way to interact with it, either through ssh or directly on the device.
[1:58] <Nbane> it was cheap and is high resolution
[1:58] * Opinie (~jay@pc-184-130.cable.aina.net) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[1:58] <rideh> i'm wanting to salvage some old laptop screens for displays
[1:58] <rideh> but will need to learn the wiring pinout
[1:58] <Nbane> Yeah, an ethernet cable with two RJ45 connectors
[1:59] <Nbane> One to plug in your internet, and the other end into your pi
[1:59] <Nbane> otherwise-
[1:59] <Nbane> go wireless :)
[1:59] <pksato> rideh: you need a lcd controler, find one on ebay.
[1:59] <Nbane> I've gone wireless
[1:59] <Nbane> But it doesn't hurt to have a cable
[1:59] <Nbane> A wireless USB 'dongle'
[2:00] <Nbane> is a great way to plug in to your existing internet connection
[2:00] <Nbane> What you got your pi for?
[2:00] * Mikelevel (~MoVeWoRk@60.Red-80-25-210.staticIP.rima-tde.net) Quit (Client Quit)
[2:00] <Nbane> Interfacing with robots? :)

[2:00] <Nbane> Or maybe a media centre?
[2:00] <Nbane> Or for your kid!
[2:01] <rideh> i'm using one for raspbmc and the other will be for some gpio stuff. waiting for breakout cable
[2:01] <hays> what is a gertboard
[2:01] <pksato> rideh: or program some FPGA to use DSI connector.
[2:01] <Nbane> I'm teaching my friends kids to program, and then volunteering to teach at th youth project
[2:02] <rideh> pksato: ideas on good resources for me to get started?

[2:03] <Nbane> At least I'm guessing a buzzer
[2:04] <Nbane> Basically, theres this thing... called the GPIO
[2:04] <Nbane> And the GPIO means you can re-program... well.. just about anything
[2:04] <Nbane> so a 'big trak' toy... or a robotic arm...
[2:04] <Nbane> anything.
[2:05] <Nbane> a camera... thermistor... motion sensor....
[2:05] <scummos> as long as it doesn't need to be very fast... yes
[2:06] <Nbane> 512 mb of RAM yeah
[2:06] <Nbane> its a wee computer. that fits in your hands basically
[2:06] <Nbane> The camera thing I'll have some experience with soon
[2:07] <scummos> I was more like hinting at the timing problems with the GPIOs
[2:07] <Nbane> Ah
[2:07] <Nbane> Yeah, they can link into Arduino for that or something.

[4:46] <mdszy> yeah, the Pi doesn't have any bluetooth built in.
[4:46] <swart> yes. lsusb shows there is a broadcom adapter - I checked the wiki for one that works

[4:59] <ivotkl> Great. Hello. I would like to know if there would be any incompatibility issues if I buy a Class10 Sandisk SD Card to use with Type B Pi board.
[4:59] <Tickle> Anyways, when I connect to my cameras IP, the image only updates for a few seconds, then it stop loading the webpage and the image freezes.
[5:00] <Tickle> ivotkl no there is not
[5:00] <Tickle> How many gigs?
[5:00] <ivotkl> 64
[5:00] <ivotkl> =$
[5:00] <ivotkl> But it is available in 8, 16 and 32 as well.
[5:00] <ParkerR> ivotkl, Should be just fine
[5:00] <ivotkl> Excellent. =)
[5:00] <ShiftPlusOne> ivotkl, I'd recommend you check the verified peripherals list to make sure. It should be fine, but it might not be.

[5:05] <ShiftPlusOne> I've heard something about the current kernel not working too well with webcams. AFAIK rikkib uses an old kernel.
[5:05] <chaz68> What is the Media Library function in SqueezePlug if anyone knows?
[5:05] <ShiftPlusOne> or firmware
[5:05] <chaz68> I think I may be able to skip this part of the setup but was looking for advice from someone more experienced with SqueezePlug on the Pi.
[5:06] <ParkerR> Never heard of it
[5:07] <Opinie> I think there was some guy here that once went on about squeezeplug

[5:12] <ngc0202> from HDMI or the yellow one
[5:12] <Opinie> ngc0202: you don't need video output to do that, but it'd sure be nice

[5:18] <tonsit> ah, gotcha
[5:18] <ngc0202> Which I hoped would work
[5:18] <Opinie> so did you make changes to cmdline.txt?
[5:18] <Xark> ngc0202: Do you at least see the "rainbow" at boot (on composite or HDMI)?
[5:18] <marmulak> I'm thinking of ordering a Pi, but I don't know really if I'll use it or if it'll gather dust next to my other novelty gadgets
[5:18] <ngc0202> Xark: No :/

[5:19] <ParkerR> The gift that keep on giving
[5:19] <Opinie> have you done that
[5:19] <Xark> ngc0202: Well, I suspect you need a special setup for that to boot properly.

[5:20] <ParkerR> ngc0202, try just flashing an image to the SD card
[5:20] <ParkerR> Remove the flash drive from the equation
[5:21] <Opinie> if that works, then try the USB system
[5:21] <Xark> ngc0202: The rainbow is basically the "BIOS" boot screen (shown after firmware image loaded). If you don't see that, it hasn't booted AFAIK.
[5:21] <ngc0202> Xark: It hasn't booted, or it's having troubles outputting video
[5:21] <ngc0202> Opinie: My SD Card is too small to hold Raspbian

[5:22] <Xark> ngc0202: I suspect you need to get a proper SD card (or get someone to prepare a special image).
[5:22] <ngc0202> What concerns me is that absolutely nothing shows up on the screen
[5:22] <Opinie> or use on the SD the image that doesn't have a GUI
[5:22] <ngc0202> I wish it at least gave that 4 color thing
[5:22] <ParkerR> ngc0202, Right input?
[5:22] <Xark> ngc0202: As I would expect with wonky boot image.
[5:22] <Opinie> then edit its cmdline.txt to refer to the USB disk
[5:22] <ParkerR> Cheap HDMI cable maybe?

[5:23] <ngc0202> I'm using composite now

[5:23] <ngc0202> It does
[5:23] <ngc0202> It flashes for a bit
[5:23] <ngc0202> Then my USB thing starts flashing a lot

[5:36] <Viper7> so far the closest ive found has been Palace for XMMS2, which was designed for parallel port interface, which should be easy to adapt - but it wont compile against current glib/gtk distributions, or cross compile against old versions of the libs unless the current system is actually using them
[5:37] <Viper7> hasnt been updated since 2003 :<

[6:09] <xiambax> : http://dx.com/p/usb-1-1-10-100mbps-ethernet-3-usb-2-0-ports-hub-adapter-white-10cm-125259 could you use that on a model a?
[6:09] <ngc0202> Can I use it without a keyboard?
[6:10] <xiambax> I dunno how i feel giving some shady chinese website my credit card number
[6:10] <tonsit> good news, if its visa or mastercard
[6:10] <tonsit> or amex
[6:10] <tonsit> or pretty much any major cc
[6:11] <tonsit> they'll cover ya in case of theft
[6:11] <xiambax> They don't ensure visa debit cards
[6:11] <ShiftPlusOne> does omxplayer default to hdmi or analog?
[6:11] <ShiftPlusOne> (for audio)
[6:11] <UnaClocker> I've had more trouble with local restaurants and my credit cards than I ever have had online.
[6:11] <xiambax> Really?
[6:11] <swart> UnaClocker: same here
[6:11] <tonsit> same
[6:12] <KameSense> xiambax: USB 1 doesn't provide enough BW for a 100Mbps ethernet NIC
[6:12] <tonsit> we got charged $400 dollars at a steak hour for 3 people because the waitress switched cards in the back ><
[6:12] <tonsit> steak house*
[6:12] <Viper7> xiambax: they take paypal too
[6:12] * rvalles (~rvalles@unaffiliated/rvalles) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[6:12] <KameSense> dx is reliable, but I always paid with paypal
[6:12] <xiambax> Idr rather go paypal
[6:13] <swart> my wife had problems for 2 years with her mastercard because a local restaurant made a copy of her card. someone was using it in Florida and every month she had to sign off saying it wasn't her charges, until the card expired

[6:13] * shurizzle (~shura@unaffiliated/shurizzle) Quit (Quit: bye.)
[6:14] <xiambax> America. Here in Canada they lock that stuff down fast.
[6:14] <Viper7> xiambax: i'd say it'd be fine, but you might want to download that driver cd image they link to and confirm raspbian has a driver for it
[6:14] <xiambax> I had my card skimmed at an ATM
[6:14] <swart> xiambax: it was in Canada
[6:14] <swart> restaurant was in Vancouver
[6:14] <xiambax> unlike most people, I have a 6 six digit pin hard to crack
[6:14] <xiambax> Really. Wow.
[6:14] * xiambax is from Whistler
[6:14] <ngc0202> bwah
[6:15] <UnaClocker> My credit union shut down my card in a heartbeat when it got two "test" charges and then an attempted large charge in France (I'm near SEattle)...
[6:15] <ngc0202> I'm stuck on a menu
[6:15] <swart> xiambax: North Vancouver here :)

[6:15] <UnaClocker> Got a call telling me that a new card was in the mail..

[6:15] <xiambax> swart, You a member of the Ubuntu Lug?
[6:15] <swart> no I'm in Silly Valley for a while
[6:16] <xiambax> CA?
[6:16] <swart> yeah San Jose
[6:16] <xiambax> Nice. Can you get me a job? I'm getting sick of working retail lol
[6:16] <swart> spending my days sending obnoxious volumes of XML around, hoping I can get time on the weekend to play with electronics :)
[6:16] <ngc0202> Any recommendations? :p
[6:17] * bizarro_1 (~bizarro_1@ Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[6:17] <swart> ngc0202: get a USB keyboard?
[6:17] <ngc0202> I don't own one :P
[6:17] <ngc0202> Is there a way to get it to work with a mouse?
[6:17] <swart> I have one but it uses to much power for the pi
[6:17] <xiambax> You should ssh in ngc0202
[6:17] <swart> so today I went and got a bluetooth keyboard and a dongle
[6:17] <ngc0202> well it's a gui menu
[6:18] <swart> xiambax: yeah that's what I'm doing right now. trying to get my bluetooth drivers to work
[6:18] <ngc0202> I think it just needs arrow keys :P
[6:18] <swart> gui menus all have command line equivalents

[6:20] <Tickle> Just open port 22?
[6:20] <piney_> Tickle, yes
[6:21] <Tickle> Thanks
[6:21] <Viper7> ngc0202: a local network?
[6:21] <tonsit> ngc, i'm in a similar spot as you, i'm about to connect it over ethernet to get around not having a keyboard to use
[6:21] <tonsit> my wireless dongle is two days out hehe
[6:21] <ngc0202> I can't get ethernet in my room :(
[6:21] <tonsit> do you have an open ethernet port on your win7 pc?
[6:21] <tonsit> or w/e you are on
[6:21] <Tickle> tonsit, did you order from amazon?
[6:21] <tonsit> monoprice i think
[6:21] <swart> if you have a mac you can connect directly with a regular ethernet cable
[6:21] <tonsit> yes, monoprice
[6:21] <Viper7> i only use my pi over ssh, I plug it in to the local network, check the router for what DHCP leases have been given out, and ssh to that IP
[6:22] <swart> I just put a static address in mine
[6:22] * Commander1024 (~Commander@Commander1024-2-pt.tunnel.tserv6.fra1.ipv6.he.net) Quit (Excess Flood)
[6:22] <tonsit> yeah like swarts saying, you can do internet sharing with just about any os
[6:22] <Viper7> you cant do that if you cant configure it :P
[6:22] <swart> it's a chicken and egg problem :)
[6:22] <tonsit> so set the ip before you upload the sd img
[6:22] <tonsit> or good luck
[6:22] <tonsit> ;)
[6:23] <Tickle> I had to reconfigure all of my RPi IPs becuase when I got my wifi dongle it changed the DHCP
[6:23] <tonsit> dhcp will be nice
[6:23] <xiambax> Am I the only one who statically sets ips at home?
[6:23] <tonsit> wifi on my linux box will be nice too
[6:23] <swart> you can also configure your router to always give out the same IP address for each mac address
[6:23] <tonsit> i set them when its needed
[6:24] <xiambax> Everything in my house has an ip and a name. That way when i ssh into my router, i know whats up
[6:24] <piney_> xiambax, no, all static here except laptops, tablets and cellphones
[6:24] * Commander1024 (~Commander@Commander1024-2-pt.tunnel.tserv6.fra1.ipv6.he.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[6:24] <Tickle> swart yeah but I don't change locations much
[6:24] <tonsit> i do that too with what swart said, let the pcs worry about ips
[6:24] <tonsit> router rather
[6:24] <swart> I find it nice for setting up rules and whatnot
[6:24] <xiambax> I got bored last week and setup ipv6 for my whole house
[6:24] <xiambax> lol
[6:25] <tonsit> let the router maintain what gets what ip
[6:25] <swart> some people want to run minecraft servers, I have some rules for ssh etc.
[6:25] <Tickle> Is it possible to run a full scale Minecraft servr off a Pi?
[6:25] <swart> doubtful
[6:25] <ShiftPlusOne> As long as nobody joins
[6:25] <tonsit> full scale or personal to the pi
[6:25] <Tickle> ahaha
[6:25] <piney_> Tickle, memory will be the limit
[6:25] <swart> I was running minecraft server on a linux box with 1Gb of ram and it was beyond slow
[6:25] <ShiftPlusOne> no, cpu is the limit
[6:26] <piney_> interesting
[6:26] <ShiftPlusOne> cpu is at 100% before memory fills up
[6:26] <Tickle> Minecraft isn't known for efficiency.
[6:26] <swart> it's java. everything is the limit :)
[6:26] <tonsit> lol
[6:26] <piney_> lol
[6:26] <swart> so does pi edition of minecraft java based or C/C++?
[6:26] <swart> is
[6:26] <tonsit> i figured it wasn't around, maybe its python
[6:27] <ShiftPlusOne> pi edition is not java
[6:27] <tonsit> so whats that, c?
[6:27] <swart> the apple version was definitely in c
[6:27] <ShiftPlusOne> but it doesn't run a server
[6:27] <swart> no java on ios
[6:27] <Tickle> Most likely Python, but don't expect anything near what youd imagine minecraft is.
[6:27] <swart> and since it's arm and gles
[6:27] <swart> not python I think
[6:27] <ShiftPlusOne> no, not python
[6:27] <tonsit> its just a big black box with a line
[6:27] <tonsit> follow it
[6:27] <swart> python is much slower htan java
[6:27] <ShiftPlusOne> c or c++ afaik
[6:27] <tonsit> heh
[6:29] <ShiftPlusOne> There are C implementations of the minecraft server which people have had some success with.
[6:30] <swart> it's practically open source. the java sdk is basically all the minecraft source code decompiled and unobfuscated
[6:30] <Tickle> I want to see someone make a Google Glass like HUD with a Pi
[6:30] <ShiftPlusOne> But by success I think they mean they joined and it didn't crash straight away.
[6:30] <swart> porting minecraft to c would be a lot of work, but there are a lot of people who would be willing to do that
[6:31] <swart> :)

[6:31] <Torikun> really?
[6:31] <Torikun> that's it?
[6:32] <Tickle> I hope they keep it somewhat open source and have the screen be larger than what they show.

[6:36] <tonsit> they had technology like that 20 years ago if i can find it, it was like $200 back then no idea what it would be now
[6:36] <tonsit> it had A/V inputs
[6:36] <tonsit> would work with the pi
[6:37] <Tickle> Google Glass?
[6:37] <tonsit> it projected the image onto whatever you were looking at
[6:37] <tonsit> no it was for tv

[6:38] <Tickle> They've had rear projection televisions for years, the only issue was that the image would continue past the glass, unlike the TVs wich would be a white screen.
[6:38] <Torikun> what website you know of that has a lot of ads?
[6:38] <swart> you shouldn't think about what it would be like 20 years ago for people to see what we have now. it makes much more sense to think about what you can make that most people aren't thinking about yet

[6:40] <tonsit> they're doing similar things for holograms now, projecting them inside cubes

[6:42] <Tickle> sorry
[6:42] <swart> lots of under 13 here
[6:42] <swart> np I'm not an op :)
[6:42] <Torikun> where do you see ads on google
[6:43] <xiambax> Im referring to the old google i think
[6:43] <xiambax> or maybe a different google.
[6:43] <Torikun> i cant find any site with ads now
[6:43] <Torikun> lol
[6:43] <xiambax> the invite only google
[6:43] <Torikun> and I wanna test the squid plugin
[6:43] <xiambax> You were not invited i guess
[6:43] <Torikun> lol
[6:43] <Tickle> Yahoo has the most annoying ads ever, they interupt the whole screen!
[6:43] <Torikun> i can;t find any on yahoo i tried them first
[6:44] <xiambax> The only thing yahoo is good for is Yahoo Finance
[6:44] <elek> as a yahoo developer, i find this offensive!
[6:44] <UnaClocker> I haven't surfed without adblock in like 6 years.
[6:44] <xiambax> :D
[6:44] <Tickle> Torikun are you look to put ads on a site?
[6:44] <Torikun> live jasmin has no ads
[6:44] <xiambax> Yahoo Developer?
[6:44] <Torikun> no Tickle
[6:44] <Torikun> I want to test adzapper plugin for squid
[6:44] <xiambax> What does yahoo develop?
[6:44] <elek> specifically, a developer on the ad serving platform ;\
[6:44] <Torikun> and see how good it removes ads
[6:45] <Tickle> I can throw some ads on a webpage real quick.
[6:45] <Torikun> for once in my life I want to see ads and can not find it
[6:45] <ShiftPlusOne> Torikun, usually youtube has a massive ad on top of the front page IIRC
[6:45] <xiambax> I dunno. I guess something is only big to you if you use it.
[6:45] <UnaClocker> I had to delete my 17 year old Yahoo account about a month ago.. Kept getting hacked, no matter how massive a password I used.. Tired of my friends/relatives getting spammed..
[6:45] <xiambax> Ive never heard someone say "Hey let me yahoo that"
[6:45] <Torikun> lol
[6:45] <elek> xiambax: quite a lot.. still big internationally
[6:45] <xiambax> In Japan?
[6:45] <Tickle> UnaClocker sounds like a local issue like a rootkit or keylogger.
[6:45] <Torikun> dam no ads on youtube either
[6:45] <xiambax> Everyone is big in Japan
[6:46] <UnaClocker> Every person I know that still has a Yahoo account has the same problem.
[6:46] <xiambax> Sorry. Im just bugging you now.
[6:46] <Tickle> I've had the same yahoo account for 15+ years and never been hacked.
[6:46] <Tickle> same password for six years lol
[6:46] <elek> no i think your sentiment is shared across the entire company, including the ceo. we need to make risky moves now
[6:47] <UnaClocker> My gmail account never gets hacked. Done with yahoo.
[6:47] <xiambax> Me either but that could be because I never use my yahoo account
[6:47] <ShiftPlusOne> xiambax, I think that's because google was the first search engine to be verbed up like that. Yahoo was very popular a while back. You probably haven't heard anyone say "let me altavista that" either, for example.
[6:47] <Torikun> omg I have adblock installed
[6:47] <Torikun> that is probably why
[6:47] <Tickle> :)
[6:47] <xiambax> Wait lemme ask beeves
[6:47] <xiambax> s/ geeves
[6:47] <Tickle> ask jeeves
[6:47] <ShiftPlusOne> I think it was with aj, yes
[6:47] <xiambax> ya thats it
[6:47] <piney_> i didn't know people still use yahoo. thought that went away like myspace did
[6:47] <UnaClocker> webcrawler.com What I used before Yahoo.. ;)
[6:47] <Torikun> ty
[6:47] <Tickle> that site was, IMO, better than Google for a good while.
[6:48] <Tickle> Ask Jeeves that is
[6:48] <tonsit> i used yahoo to search for my own tripod page ;)
[6:48] <UnaClocker> piney_: It did, exactly like myspace.
[6:48] <ShiftPlusOne> heh... tripod and geocities pages
[6:48] <elek> yahoo news and finance, flickr.. we got a few good things ;\

[6:49] <tonsit> microsoft is still around
[6:49] <UnaClocker> tonsit: Barely.
[6:49] <tonsit> heh
[6:49] <UnaClocker> If MS didn;'t have the XBox, they'd be done.
[6:49] <ShiftPlusOne> ms will probably always be around in one form or another
[6:49] <tonsit> but halo is the only game worth owning
[6:50] <piney_> ms office keeps em around IMO
[6:50] <Tickle> If they didn't have MS Office they'd be gone
[6:50] <UnaClocker> tonsit: I prefer Forza
[6:50] <Xark> UnaClocker: Heh, Xbox division lost money this year...
[6:50] <tonsit> i install internet explorer on my android devices
[6:50] <ShiftPlusOne> actually, IIRC their server software is their biggest income source.
[6:50] <Tickle> Forza 4 was so much better than Horizon.
[6:50] <UnaClocker> Xark: Probably embezzled by the Windows division.. How can you lose money when you keep selling the same machine to the same people over and over, and then charge a monthly fee to use the thing....
[6:51] <tonsit> are we talking about my cable tv box? cause i hate that thing
[6:51] <Xark> UnaClocker: Well, they are probably investing in 720 or whatever too...
[6:51] * systemx is now known as system
[6:51] <tonsit> or maybe my phone
[6:51] <tonsit> brb
[6:51] <Tickle> For the longest time Sony LOST money on every Playstation 3 they sold, a large percentage of income for Consoles is kickbacks from developer's games.
[6:51] * system is now known as systemx
[6:52] <UnaClocker> hehe, cable TV.. I remember when I used to have that.. Back when I had a landline phone too..
[6:52] <Xark> Tickle: Yeah, that is kind of normal (but Sony did lose a lot at first).
[6:52] <UnaClocker> Tickle: Yeah, there are a lot of ways they make money.. I don't buy that they're not making a killing.
[6:52] * systemx is now known as xiambax
[6:53] <Xark> Tickle: Still, I think the PS3 had a "payback" of like 5 games (which is not too uncommon in the life of a system).
[6:53] <Xark> Tickle: Probably less now.
[6:53] <Tickle> Sony tried to fix it by creating a cheaper Playstation 3, they are litterally terrible machines, cheaply made.

[6:56] <swart> so it wasn't a ps4 after all?
[6:56] <swart> these guys are going to be devoured
[6:56] <Tickle> I remember when I got my Playstation 1, then got a Playstation 2, then a 3.
[6:57] <Xark> swart: Huh? No, this was last year, not next month. :)
[6:57] <swart> not that a ps4 would have saved them
[6:57] <swart> ah
[6:57] <UnaClocker> Yeah, they're going the way of Nintendo.. sit on their butts and get passed up..
[6:57] <UnaClocker> I hear the corporate environment inside of Sony is pretty bad nowadays..
[6:57] <swart> announcemnt is next month? I thought it was any day now

[6:58] <UnaClocker> ;)
[6:58] <xiambax> Gameboy took years to catch up
[6:58] <Tickle> The Playstation 2 was such a HUGE success that they were still making games for the 2 five years into the Playstation 3 life span.

[6:59] <piney_> I had a sega saturn, i think there were like 30 games made for that thing. last console i owned
[6:59] <UnaClocker> xiambax: Was that the 3d red laser one that was bad on the eyes? I played that a couple times.
[6:59] <ngc0202> My PC is my favourite console

[7:00] <ParkerR> ngc0202, That too
[7:00] <Tickle> The only thing i remember about the Xbox 1 was the horrible black/green UI, it game me a headache to look away from it in a bright room.
[7:00] <ngc0202> :)
[7:00] <ParkerR> UnaClocker, Softmodded with an 80gb drive and XBMC as the launcher
[7:00] <UnaClocker> Yup.. :)
[7:00] <ParkerR> All is good
[7:00] <xiambax> UnaClocker: Yeah it was boss, I was so pissed when my parents took it away
[7:00] <xiambax> northlane36
[7:01] <xiambax> whoos
[7:01] <xiambax> whoops
[7:01] <UnaClocker> My kids used it for years to play movies.. Finally moved to an AppleTV.. Now they have a Pi..
[7:01] <ngc0202> hehe
[7:01] <UnaClocker> Never give kids optical media.
[7:01] <Tickle> Ahahaha
[7:01] <UnaClocker> Might as well throw it away.
[7:02] <Xark> UnaClocker: I have some DVDs that would make good sanding discs...
[7:02] <UnaClocker> Also got a Softmodded Wii with a 1TB USB hard drive plugged into it..

[7:02] <ParkerR> I ONLY use the Wii for homebrew
[7:03] <Tickle> or Netflix
[7:03] <ParkerR> Only thing its good for
[7:03] <UnaClocker> eh, Pi is better at homebrew than the Wii.. heh..
[7:03] <ParkerR> Excitebots is the one Wii game I have and like
[7:04] * lickalott (~lickalott@ Quit (Read error: Operation timed out)
[7:04] <ParkerR> Well and obv Wii sports. They bundle that XD
[7:04] <Tickle> I use my Wii controllers with my Android, and the balance board as a midi pad.
[7:04] <UnaClocker> I lost 40 pounds last year with the Wii Fit logging it.. :)
[7:04] <UnaClocker> Makes a nice graph.. :)
[7:05] <ParkerR> Pi: Browsing at the speed of slug
[7:06] <Tickle> How do I add LX Terminal to the bottom Panel?
[7:06] <ParkerR> If there is one thing I wish the Pi did better is chromium and javascript
[7:06] <UnaClocker> Yeah.. Iceweasel has been the best browsing experience on the Pi for me, but it still sucks..
[7:06] <UnaClocker> Yeah, better chromium and YouTube.
[7:07] <ParkerR> UnaClocker, Naah no need for better youtube. Can already do that in command line and have 1080p playback
[7:07] <ParkerR> :)
[7:07] <UnaClocker> I don't want it in the command line, I want it in the browser like a civilized person.
[7:07] <ParkerR> <3 omxplayer
[7:08] <Tickle> Raspberry Pi: A command line with a nice logo behind it!
[7:08] <ParkerR> https://github.com/rjw57/yt

[7:09] <swart> what do you guys expect for $35?
[7:10] <ParkerR> Exactly what I expected
[7:10] <swart> come back in 20 years and I'm sure it will be better :)
[7:10] <ParkerR> Does everything I want it to do and more
[7:10] * lickalott (~lickalott@ has joined #raspberrypi
[7:10] <Tickle> I'd imagine in 20 years, YouTube won't be around, least not in the sense it is now.
[7:11] <UnaClocker> I made quite a bit of money off my YouTube channel last year.. Had an impact on my tax return.. ;)
[7:11] <swart> I was around 20 years ago, and even though it wasn't actually that long ago, I still couldn't have predicted what we have now
[7:11] <swart> otherwise my stock portfolio would be doing much better :)
[7:11] <UnaClocker> Yeah, 20 years ago I was writing doorgames for BBS's..
[7:12] <Tickle> Just think, 10 years ago no one knew what an iPhone was...
[7:12] <swart> if someone said to me 20 years ago "Apple is going to kick microsoft's ass" I would have laughed in their face
[7:12] <ParkerR> swart, I still laugh
[7:12] <Tickle> You mean those see through pannel computers?!
[7:12] <swart> hah
[7:12] <ParkerR> :P
[7:12] <UnaClocker> hehe, yeah, they were "Macintrash"... Now it's all I run...
[7:12] <tonsit> yeah, and next we'll all be able to talk to our cell phones or unlock them by looking at them
[7:12] <UnaClocker> Aside from the Pi that runs Linux.
[7:12] <ParkerR> UnaClocker, nooooooo
[7:13] <swart> and linux 20 years ago? you were lucky to have a command line :)
[7:13] <ParkerR> UnaClocker, And I had respect for you
[7:13] <ParkerR> :P
[7:13] <UnaClocker> heh, at some point you get fed up getting virii and trojans and say screw it, I'm done with Windows.
[7:13] <Tickle> A friend of mine still has a working Apple II
[7:13] <swart> I just gave up trying to make windows act like a reasonable OS
[7:13] <ParkerR> Umm dude. I've ran without UAC and just MSE and have been fine
[7:14] <ParkerR> Firewall is even off
[7:14] <UnaClocker> Great, I haven't.
[7:14] <swart> like, please can I have symlinks?
[7:14] <ParkerR> swart, It has symlinks...
[7:14] <tonsit> you can in the recovery console swart, dunno anywhere else
[7:14] <Tickle> MSE is amazing, compared to Norton which is a virus in itself.
[7:14] <swart> ParkerR: really?
[7:14] <tonsit> i moved users and program files to my secondary drive, created sym links and install to c:\ like its really there
[7:14] <UnaClocker> Yeah, I can't imagine using dropbox the way I do without symlinks..
[7:15] <UnaClocker> Still aggravates me that I can't sync my dropbox with my Pi..
[7:15] <swart> how do you create a symbolic link in windows?
[7:15] <UnaClocker> Windows doesn't even come with ssh.. haha..
[7:15] <elek> swart, mklink
[7:15] <Tickle> I don't like Dropbox, they can get into anything you put on their servers, not sure I trust them. SpiderOak is the way to go!
[7:16] <swart> elek: no kidding. wow
[7:16] <Tickle> UnaClocker: I know, I hate that!
[7:16] <Torikun> mega!

[7:18] <swart> ParkerR and elek: can you guys tell me how to get rid of drive letters too? :)
[7:18] <tonsit> tickle: operator error or poor design
[7:19] <ParkerR> swart, Um
[7:19] <ParkerR> :P
[7:19] <tonsit> swart, to swap them or do you want mount points?
[7:19] <elek> you can hide them..
[7:19] <Tickle> Poor design, it has four little clips on each side, you have to take the front two out, rotate the case without snapping them back in, it's just terrible to get open because it is so snug.
[7:19] <swart> actually I think the symlinks are dangerous enough :)

[7:25] <Tickle> Yeah it's still cool, a friend said he was gonig to do a Beowulf cluster.
[7:25] <Xark> UnaClocker: If they were going for "real power". I suppose they could use OpenGL ES shaders for some tasks (but it would be a PITA vs a nice OpenCL etc.).
[7:25] <swart> Xark: thanks. I have a corporate IT disk partition policy that needs tweaking. hopefully I don't need to do anything too crazy

[7:45] <piney_> verizon is waiting on federal grants to roll out more fios. anywhere it was profitable to put fios, they did
[7:45] <swart> my comcast internet service is pretty good. as long as my kid isn't downloading new games :)

[7:48] <swart> stuff like that
[7:48] <tonsit> thats what i want to build anyway
[7:48] <swart> I want to make a mame console

[7:48] <swart> and robots, but that's more for my son's FIRST club
[7:48] <tonsit> or the suburbs
[7:49] <tonsit> i had a lego robot kit that hooked up to apple II's
[7:49] <piney_> my dsl is very reliable, and I have a VPS for high bandwidth stuff/serving when i need
[7:49] <tonsit> it had a light sensor too
[7:49] <swart> lego's great
[7:49] <swart> arduino is fantastic too
[7:50] <tonsit> ^
[7:50] <tonsit> i'm new to this, i dunno how i missed it all

[7:52] <swart> the IDE for arduino is very nice. great for beginners
[7:53] <piney_> are you using thin diameter solder? that helps for me
[7:53] <tonsit> i have shaky hands and not enough clamps i think

[7:53] <piney_> i have very shaky hands too
[7:53] <swart> yeah I think so, but my problem was shaky hands too
[7:53] <piney_> if i have to stay still, i can't lol
[7:54] <tonsit> heh
[7:54] <swart> also I lost my bulb. $2 part and I'm too cheap to buy a new one because I know it's around here somewhere :)
[7:54] <swart> so gooping way too much solder all over things that shouldn't have solder on them :)
[7:54] <tonsit> lol
[7:55] <tonsit> then trying to fix that and just destroying the board
[7:55] <swart> also I managed to solder a header to the wrong side of the pcb. wtf
[7:55] <tonsit> or at least that would be my next step
[7:55] <swart> at least it was nicely soldered to the wrong place :)
[7:55] <tonsit> haha

[7:56] <JakeSays> so iirc one of the ribbon connectors on the pi is for a touch screen.. has anyone tried using it?
[7:57] <JakeSays> swart: lol i've done that with a header before
[7:57] <piney_> JakeSays, it's for a touch screen that the Raspberry Pi Foundation plans on releasing in the future.
[7:57] <swart> once it's on, it's not coming off :)
[7:57] <Xark> swart: Hope you have solder wick... :)
[7:58] <swart> I should get a desoldering thing
[7:58] <piney_> I don't think that the software for that port is even in the firmware yet to use it. (I could be wrong there)
[7:58] <ngc0202> Are the RPis good at being dropped and not broken?
[7:58] <swart> ngc0202: best not to drop it
[7:58] <ngc0202> but would it break?
[7:58] <swart> it's fragile electronics
[7:58] <piney_> ngc0202, I wouldn't want to try it
[7:58] <JakeSays> piney_: but its a standard connector though, right?
[7:58] <ngc0202> ok
[7:59] <ngc0202> It already fell once
[7:59] <swart> ngc0202: maybe. depends what you drop it on and from how high
[7:59] <Xark> swart: In a pinch, you can try some thick stranded copper wire like stripped AC cord as a wick.
[7:59] <ngc0202> But it landed on a bag thankfully
[7:59] <piney_> JakeSays, yes. I'm not sure if the pinout is standard, but the connector is
[7:59] <swart> Xark: yeah I was thinking of trying something like that. but it was faster just to go online and order a second one :)
[7:59] <JakeSays> i have several old phones. i'm wondering if any of their screens would work
[8:00] <piney_> JakeSays, they are releasing a camera module for the other port real soon (sent to manufacturers already) so, they should start working on it soon (soon being relative)
[8:00] <swart> I successfully built a power supply the other day, so there is still hope
[8:00] <Xark> swart: That works well too. :)
[8:01] <JakeSays> piney_: yeah i'm not too interested in the camera

[8:46] <ParkerR> I want my network open and I want things to respect that
[8:46] <tonsit> no option to force it open?
[8:46] <tonsit> damn
[8:46] <tonsit> er, pardon that
[8:47] <ParkerR> tonsit, Berryboot comes up with a network list and a field for WPA password. I left it blank and it errors out
[8:47] <ParkerR> Set a password and it works
[8:47] <tonsit> so any password with no WPA, is ok?
[8:47] <tonsit> nvm
[8:47] <tonsit> gotcha
[8:48] <ParkerR> tonsit, I set a WPA password on thre router
[8:48] <tonsit> yeah, i got ya
[8:48] <ParkerR> Just so berryboot would work
[8:48] <tonsit> i wasn't asking for clarification, i was surprised it wasn't an option

[13:03] <gordonDrogon> don't need gparted, just some paper and a few commands - of let raspi-config do it for you.
[13:03] <ryanteck> I like gParted for editing on a PC the partitions

[15:00] <scummos> the kernel drivers are the same for all distros
[15:00] <Amadiro> martk100, if you boot debian and connect the device, you can run `lsmod` to figure out what driver is loaded for it.
[15:01] <martk100> scummos: Thanks. In that case. How do i make wlan0 connect to my dongle?
[15:01] <Amadiro> martk100, does it already show up as "wlan0"?
[15:01] <martk100> Amadiro: I have done that. The setup is identical.

[15:04] <martk100> Amadiro: I have not tried that. What does the a swith do?
[15:04] <scummos> martk100: if an interface called "wlan0" shows up at all, then the driver side is already done with.
[15:04] <Amadiro> show interfaces that are offline as well
[15:04] <Amadiro> ifconfig per default only shows online interfaces
[15:04] <scummos> martk100: then you just need to configure the connection properly
[15:04] <Amadiro> but as scummos said, the driver side is already fixed
[15:05] <scummos> also I think ifconfig shows all interfaces which are up -- that doesn't necessarily mean a connection is established
[15:05] <scummos> could also be a LAN card waiting for a cable
[15:05] <martk100> Amadiro: Is that in wpa_supplicant.conf or network.d interfaces?
[15:05] <Amadiro> yes, "online" in the sense of the interface being activated
[15:05] <scummos> martk100: afaik you can use either

[15:07] <scummos> ok, did you try NetworkManager?
[15:07] <Amadiro> I have never really gotten wicd to work for me either. I'm just using wpa_supplicant manually.
[15:07] <scummos> a lot of people are very excited about wicd, but I personally... yeah
[15:07] <scummos> never really got it to work nicely either ;p
[15:08] <martk100> scummos I am not sure if NetworkManager is part of the arc setup. Not much is available in the repos.
[15:08] <scummos> martk100: i'm using network manager on arch, you just need to install it.
[15:09] <martk100> scummos: Thanks that helps. I will try this afternoon.
[15:09] <Amadiro> its really not that hard to just write a small wpa_supplicant config file either, though
[15:09] <scummos> yes
[15:09] <Amadiro> wpa_supplicant does most things automatically anyway, you just need to provide it with the network name and password, really
[15:09] <scummos> but there's much more things you can do wrong ;)
[15:09] <martk100> scummos: wpa_supplicant I find mind blowingly complex

[16:22] * intothev01d (~intothev0@unaffiliated/intothev01d) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:22] <AHammar> sweed, that depends greatly upon what you want to do with the pi
[16:22] <swart> why not decide what performance metrics are important to you, and compare a bunch of distros?
[16:22] <swart> you could set up a wiki page and save someone hours of work :)
[16:22] <scummos> there's probably not going to be huge differences
[16:23] <scummos> except if your application needs the last 5% of peformance then I'd say it doesn't matter
[16:23] <swart> there are certain things you can do. for example, if you care about graphics performance, don't use X11 :)

[16:29] <discorpia> if i use a usb-ttl converter, can i wire that to the gpio pins and setup a console on it, so that the usb/ttl converter becomes a serial device on the pc i can open a terminal connection to?
[16:31] <mjr> if it's spesifically an usb ttl _serial_ converter, yes
[16:32] <mjr> oh also check that it's spesifically 3.3V
[16:32] <discorpia> ah yeah, it has the ft232rl chip
[16:32] <sweed> I think to install arch
[16:32] <discorpia> ah, cool
[16:32] <mjr> the term TTL level is used for both 5V and 3.3V, and if it's 5V, it'll fry the pi

[16:36] <discorpia> mine is a 5v so i'll add a 4050, thanks
[16:36] <gordonDrogon> 2 resistors are good enough for 5v input to the Pi for a serial line....
[16:36] * Hopsy (~Hopsy@unaffiliated/hopsy) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:39] <mjr> and theoretically the 3V3 signals from the Pi "should" be sufficient to be detectable by a 5V serial interface, YMMV
[16:39] <discorpia> aha, voltage divider? would 10k/15k work? (3v)
[16:39] <discorpia> ah valid point

[22:06] <chupacabra> is debian the most popular distro for the pi?
[22:07] <TomWij> chupacabra: Hard to tell since it's hard to track the numbers, there is for instance no way to really track how much people use something like Arch or Gentoo.
[22:07] <chupacabra> thats Linux for you. hehe
[22:08] <TomWij> It's more likely that the images they provide are more popular than the images you need to produce yourself. ~ Insert some rule of lazyness / usability / ... here.
[22:09] <hybr1d8> raspbian (based on debian) is probably the most popular simply because it is the one noted first on the raspberry pi pages (and most people tend to pick option 1 ;) )
[22:09] <chupacabra> yup

[22:21] <Amadiro> But sometimes there are other useful debugging informations in there
[22:21] <ngc0202> hmm
[22:21] <ngc0202> so I found a spare wifi adapter for my RPi

[22:23] <chaz68> Well I rebooted and there does not seem to be a dmesg output of concern.
[22:23] <Amadiro> chaz68, it would first show up after the harddisk disconnects.
[22:23] <chaz68> Should I try a big copy job again and then run dmesg after it fails..?

[22:32] <gordonDrogon> that's me.
[22:32] <k1i> Okay, interesting problem, if you've got a few minutes to answer it
[22:32] <k1i> and its probably right up your ally
[22:32] <gordonDrogon> if I can....
[22:33] <k1i> wiringpi related
[22:33] <k1i> I bought an adafruit LCD + MCP23017 I2C board kit, built it, everything works perfectly
[22:33] <k1i> it has 5 IO buttons
[22:33] * gordonDrogon nods.
[22:33] <k1i> I wrote a ruby driver for it
[22:33] <k1i> anyway
[22:33] <k1i> the problem is, I threw the button-checking loop/code into a new thread
[22:34] <k1i> and when I go to write to the chip it screws up the LCD
[22:34] <k1i> (in a separate thread)
[22:34] <gordonDrogon> doesn't surprise me.
[22:34] <gordonDrogon> you need to "lock" access to the device, so only one thread can access it at any time.
[22:34] <gordonDrogon> otherwise they'll treat on each others toes.
[22:35] <k1i> is multithreading the proper method to handling button presses, etc, polled stuff?
[22:35] <k1i> and writing at the same time
[22:35] <gordonDrogon> I know nothing about ruby, but a lot about Linux & C and there I'd use a mutex.
[22:35] <xiambax> Did anyone ever answer my
[22:35] <k1i> so i2c-dev doesn't have transactions built-in?
[22:35] <xiambax> "what the best wiki" question
[22:35] <gordonDrogon> multithreading is one way - sometimes an easy way by splitting your application up into blocks/modules that all run concurrently.
[22:36] <ParkerR> Minecraft Pi http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUgjIVACwT8
[22:36] <ParkerR> (leaked version)
[22:36] <swart> xiambax: there probably aren't a whole lot of people running wikis on their pi
[22:36] <gordonDrogon> k1i, I think the issue with i2c dev is that you need to make several separate transactions to do just one thing, so other processes can get in in-btetwen the display transactions for example.
[22:36] <swart> you'd be better off researching wiki software for linux in general

[22:37] <gordonDrogon> the i2c driver won't know when you're done...
[22:37] <UukGoblin> hi
[22:37] <Amadiro> k1i, typically you wouldn't use multi-threading for that.
[22:37] * aaearon (aaearon@gateway/shell/xzibition.com/x-vwsxdwbtvmyjvmre) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:37] <gordonDrogon> Amadiro, typically it's a good way to separate functions in a project.
[22:37] <k1i> well I am polling the device in a loop for button state
[22:37] <k1i> gpio reads
[22:37] <UukGoblin> why so much power consumption? Are there ways to reduce it (i.e. supplying the correct voltages directly, or disabling subsystems such as GPU, USB or Ethernet)?
[22:37] <k1i> I want to be able to write to it concurrently
[22:38] <gordonDrogon> just use a mutex.
[22:38] <Amadiro> Also not sure whether the problem is actually caused by you using multithreading, since ruby doesn't have threads that can run concurrently
[22:38] <s5fs> xiambax: I recently saw a talk by Ward Cunningham, he's working on something called a 'federated wiki', looked pretty neat. I recommend checking it out. He demo'd it running on a pi.
[22:38] <Amadiro> but maybe it does allow the writes to happen concurrently
[22:38] <k1i> http://www.ruby-doc.org/core-1.9.3/Mutex.html
[22:38] <gordonDrogon> so whenever you access the device set/wait on the mutex.
[22:38] <k1i> looks like mutexing is built into ruby 1.9.3
[22:38] <k1i> nice

[22:40] <gordonDrogon> how does ruby handle the i2c?

[22:40] <gordonDrogon> I know virtually nothing about ruby.
[22:40] <k1i> I am using a modified version of this

[22:41] <gordonDrogon> sometimes you have to poll.
[22:41] <k1i> yea
[22:42] <k1i> I am going to add mutexing to this gem
[22:42] <k1i> at an IO level
[22:42] <Amadiro> k1i, it's usually the best solution, though.
[22:42] <mgottschlag> UukGoblin: there are hardware mods to replace the linear regulator with a switching one

[22:42] <k1i> gordonDrogon: this library is inspired by wiringpi
[22:43] <k1i> nice thing with ruby is

[22:44] <k1i> around the read and write functions
[22:45] <UukGoblin> so I'm guessing 5V-> 3.3V is done via an LDO, which is probably not super-efficient

[23:09] <gordonDrogon> Zehle, yes, digital unless you use some external A/D converter.
[23:09] <Amadiro> Macer, what scanner
[23:09] <k1i> Amadiro: a la http://pastebin.com/msUHGz1n
[23:09] <Zehle> gordonDrogon: yepp
[23:09] <Amadiro> k1i, you probably need to send a request to the device first before it can answer you anything
[23:09] * Matt (matt@freenode/staff-emeritus/matt) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:09] <k1i> good point
[23:10] * chris_99 (~chris_99@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[23:10] <Zehle> Is the TempBitrate then accuracy?
[23:10] <Zehle> How many bits should be needed for 0.1 accuracy?
[23:10] <chaz68> So. I'm assuming USB weirdness here... Any ideas?
[23:10] <k1i> anyone here have experience with RS485?
[23:10] <k1i> just by chance?
[23:10] <mdik> Zehle: it depends on the range and the acutal sensor.
[23:11] <OpenSys> kli, yes
[23:11] <Zehle> mdik: Okej can you find onw for me here? http://para.maximintegrated.com/en/search.mvp?fam=temp_sens&tree=sensors Digital, 0.1 accuracy, 40-->100C, those are my needs :)
[23:11] * linuxthefish is now known as linuxthefish`
[23:12] <mdik> Zehle: don't put to many stones in your own way. if i understood the problem correctly. 0.5 degree accuracy are more than fine and the ds18b20 is good in so far that it is not expensive and there are _loads_ of tutorials online describing how to hook it up.
[23:12] <OpenSys> 0.1 accuracy = military
[23:12] <OpenSys> normal = 0.5
[23:12] * juchmis (~juchmis@JCS5613.rh.psu.edu) Quit ()
[23:12] <OpenSys> its like GPS
[23:13] <Zehle> mdik: okej, maybe you'r right, but I think 0.1 accuracy would be nice, but allright I'll check if it's really necessary.
[23:13] <Zehle> OpenSys: I find that hard to believe
[23:13] <Zehle> Opensys: we're talking temperature
[23:13] <Zehle> mdik: brb
[23:15] <OpenSys> Zehle, normal electronic components are build to costumers, automation and military
[23:15] <mdik> Zehle: a common misconception: only because a digital thermometer has a display like xx.y doesn't mean its precision is to 0.1 degrees...
[23:15] <Zehle> OpenSys: Okej :)

[23:16] <Zehle> mdik: That's true. Sorry bout that. Anyhow, my Dad said that 0.5 degrees accuracy would be just fine!
[23:17] <Zehle> mdik: so I'll go with the DS18B20 :)

[23:26] <Macer> fujitsu snapscan s1500
[23:27] <Macer> going to buy one soon since sane supports it
[23:27] <Macer> i jsut wanted to see if anybody here tried it in raspbian
[23:27] <Macer> i might use a pi as an office "desktop
[23:27] <Macer> "
[23:28] <Amadiro> Macer, if you can get over the slow X performance and the low memory
[23:28] <Macer> http://www.amazon.com/Fujitsu-ScanSnap-Instant-Sheet-Fed-Scanner/dp/B001V9LQH0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1359916256&sr=8-2&keywords=scansnap+s1500
[23:28] <Amadiro> even 512MiBs are kinda little if you want to run something like libreoffice (assuming it even works on ARM)
[23:28] <Macer> meh. i'll run fluxbox on it or something heh
[23:28] <k1i> gordonDrogon: added mutexing at a driver level and app level, seems to ave completely solved the problem
[23:28] <Amadiro> well, the window-manager will be your least concern :)
[23:28] <Macer> Amadiro: i didn't check to see if it was in the repo
[23:28] <Macer> let me see
[23:29] <Amadiro> Macer, it is
[23:29] * KiltedPi (~Nbane@host-92-30-104-218.as13285.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:29] <Amadiro> but how it runs -- I don't know. I think libreoffice uses java, and if the jvm can't JIT on ARM, it might end up being super-slow
[23:29] <Macer> libreoffice - office productivity suite
[23:29] <Macer> yah
[23:29] <Macer> does libreoffice use java?
[23:30] <Amadiro> I think so
[23:30] <Macer> i figured libreoffice ditched java
[23:30] <Amadiro> I'm not sure
[23:30] <Macer> i'm not either
[23:30] <Macer> i wonder
[23:30] <Amadiro> I haven't really kept up. I write all my things in LaTeX these days.
[23:31] <Macer> http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/5375/can-i-use-libre-office-without-java/
[23:31] <Macer> seems a few things still depend on it
[23:31] <Macer> hopefully they move away from it :)
[23:31] <Macer> java kind of lost its intention long ago anyways
[23:31] <k1i> yeah
[23:31] <Macer> as the "any platform" deal
[23:32] <k1i> what was it that saved java?
[23:32] <Macer> the whole point was to be a jvm/jre that was common across all systems
[23:32] <k1i> the implementation of exec?
[23:32] <Macer> that was totally fail :)
[23:32] <k1i> for things like jruby/scala
[23:32] <Macer> nobody knows haha
[23:32] <k1i> im thinking
[23:32] <k1i> exec
[23:32] <Macer> dalvik saved java :-P
[23:32] <Macer> heh
[23:32] <k1i> yea
[23:32] <Amadiro> you do not need to call exec() to run either jruby or scala
[23:32] * ka6sox is now known as ka6sox-away
[23:32] <k1i> what is it
[23:32] <k1i> that jruby exploits?
[23:32] <hybr1d8> java is still a better proposition on the server side than on the client ;)
[23:32] <k1i> to be able to run the interpreter
[23:33] <k1i> that made it possible
[23:33] <k1i> < not a java ugy
[23:33] * KiltedPi^ (~Nbane@host-92-30-104-218.as13285.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[23:33] <Amadiro> k1i, nothing, it just has to provide a layer that dynamically resolves function invocations and such
[23:33] <Macer> k1i: i think i'd still have the world using java than python :-P
[23:33] <Amadiro> much like you need in CRuby
[23:33] <k1i> heh
[23:33] <k1i> everyone should be using cobol
[23:33] <Amadiro> although there was talk of newer JVM versions getting dynamic_invoke, which would make that faster
[23:34] <Macer> asm
[23:34] <Amadiro> I don't know if that ever happened, though
[23:34] <Macer> python turned into its own beast

[23:35] <gordonDrogon> k1i, sounds good!
[23:35] <k1i> gordonDrogon: this really should be implemented into a native driver of some kind

[23:36] <Macer> yeah.. too bad
[23:36] <k1i> I fell in love with everything about it
[23:36] <k1i> e
[23:36] <Macer> seems like the world is going backwards
[23:36] <k1i> except for their development cycles
[23:36] <gordonDrogon> the i2c driver doesn't know when you're stated or stopped when you're doing a multi-transaction transaction with a device...
[23:36] <Macer> when i saw win8 market angry birds as awesome
[23:36] <Macer> i thought if cheesy 1990s games
[23:37] <Macer> like really? angry birds? :)
[23:37] <k1i> gordonDrogon: good point
[23:37] <Macer> why not market pong?
[23:37] <gordonDrogon> however it's zed time for me.. time to dream about something other than Pi's :)
[23:37] <k1i> Macer: wordswithfriends
[23:37] <k1i> goodnight
