[0:41] <Zylek> Hi!
[0:42] <Zylek> Is anybody using Deluge?
[0:43] * evil_dan2wik (~evil_dan2@unaffiliated/evil-dan2wik/x-0106201) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:44] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable167.12-130-66.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:44] <shiftplusone> Zylek, it's best to just ask the question.
[0:45] * nx5_off is now known as nx5
[0:45] <Zylek> I have used Deluge before, only it was straight-forward, I simply installed it, opened it, added a torrent file, and downloaded files.
[0:46] <shiftplusone> yup, it's still very much the same
[0:46] <Zylek> This is the first time I'm using it with this setup. I have Arch Linux installed, and Deluge is installed. I think it has a GUI, although am not sure how to use it.
[0:47] <Zylek> (I'm hoping my Raspberry Pi will have enough "muscle" to effectively download tv shows and movies.)
[0:47] <Zylek> I'd like to download episodes of shows directly to a separately mounted USB. How do I do that?
[0:47] <Zylek> Also, do magnets work?
[0:48] <Zylek> As an aside, after installing Arch, I only added xorg & fluxbox, and I'm installing any other programs on as as-needed basis.
[0:51] * taza (~zap@unaffiliated/taza) Quit ()
[0:52] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable167.12-130-66.mc.videotron.ca) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[0:53] * evil_dan2wik (~evil_dan2@unaffiliated/evil-dan2wik/x-0106201) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[0:53] * Hix (~Hix@97e1b346.skybroadband.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[0:53] <shiftplusone> Do you want the GUI or do you just want the daemon?
[0:53] <Zylek> I'd like to use the GUI.
[0:53] * GentileBen (~RaycisCha@cpc5-lutn10-2-0-cust681.9-3.cable.virginm.net) Quit ()
[0:53] <shiftplusone> You can have deluge running in the background, but then connect to it using the GUI (from another computer, even)
[0:54] <shiftplusone> In any case, I think everything you need is here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/deluge
[0:54] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable167.12-130-66.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:54] <Zylek> The daemon (server?) bit confused me. I've never (as far as I know) used the daemon before, unless it's a default part of the program when I open it to download shows/movies.
[0:54] <Zylek> Ah, cool. ...checking the link now.
[0:55] <shiftplusone> deluge has two modes. The one where you just open it and use it by itself is called classic mode
[0:55] <shiftplusone> the other mode has two separate components.
[0:56] <shiftplusone> so it can keep running in the background with no need for X.
[0:58] * binaryhermit (~holoirc@107-219-124-142.lightspeed.cicril.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:58] * Macuser (~textual@unaffiliated/macuser) Quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[0:58] * evil_dan2wik (~evil_dan2@unaffiliated/evil-dan2wik/x-0106201) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:59] <Zylek> Running it in the background is nice, I might do that in the future, although at present I'm generally using Deluge (on other systems) only for a short time.
[0:59] * gorhgorh (~gorhgorh@ Quit (Quit: gorhgorh)
[1:00] <Zylek> I grab an episode, it downloads pretty fast, and I leave it on for a while to contribute some to the seeding before shutting it down.
[1:01] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable167.12-130-66.mc.videotron.ca) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[1:01] <Zylek> I am currently watching videos on the USB by plugging it into my bluray player, so I can't leave the torrent application running in the background (unless I store them on another card/usb).
[1:01] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable167.12-130-66.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:02] <Zylek> However, if I can get VLC or a similar player to effectively play videos on my Arch install, I will just watch shows on that.
[1:02] * Macuser (~textual@unaffiliated/macuser) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:02] <shiftplusone> omxplayer
[1:03] <Zylek> Yeah, I read a little bit about that, I am curious about it.
[1:03] * lupinedk is now known as Lupinedk
[1:04] <shiftplusone> newer version of vlc should support hw acceleration on the pi as well, but I don't know if that's the case right now in Arch's version.
[1:04] <Zylek> ah, okay, so omxplayer does have hw acc. on arch?
[1:04] <shiftplusone> yes
[1:04] * gbaman (~gbaman@host81-134-104-240.in-addr.btopenworld.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:04] <shiftplusone> it's "the" hw accelerated player for the pi
[1:04] * NullMoogleCable (~NullMoogl@ Quit ()
[1:05] <Zylek> very good, I'll just stick with that. I wonder if it has EQ features.
[1:05] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[1:05] <shiftplusone> don't think it does
[1:06] <Zylek> bummer
[1:06] <Zylek> not a priority
[1:07] * evil_dan2wik (~evil_dan2@unaffiliated/evil-dan2wik/x-0106201) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)

[1:08] * gbaman (~gbaman@host81-134-104-240.in-addr.btopenworld.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[1:08] <Zylek> just installed omxplayer & tboplayer
[1:09] <Zylek> ...hmmm, tboplayer had errors. for now i might just try omx via command line
[1:10] * Macuser (~textual@unaffiliated/macuser) Quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[1:10] <johnc-> I'm making a video playing in python now :0
[1:10] <johnc-> it's an example on how to use omx as an API :)
[1:11] <Zylek> cool
[1:11] <johnc-> having to learn python to do it lol
[1:12] <Zylek> I asked a friend a few years ago - someone who is a sys.admin. for Wolfram Research, a pretty smart person, he knows several programming languages - anyway... I asked him that if I chose 1 language to learn, which? He said Perl.
[1:12] <Zylek> However, he said Python would also be good.
[1:13] <Zylek> Although, he also said to learn several programming languages. lol
[1:13] * evil_dan2wik (~evil_dan2@unaffiliated/evil-dan2wik/x-0106201) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:14] <Zylek> Wow! I just played a video on omxplayer (episode of Big Bang Theory). Love it!
[1:15] * k03ll (~galactica@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:15] <Zylek> I don't care for the quality of the sound so much but the video's pretty good.
[1:15] * mpmc is now known as mpmc[BNC4FREE]
[1:15] <shiftplusone> using analog audio instead of hdmi?
[1:15] <Zylek> Ah ha! I just fixed it. I used -o hdmi
[1:15] <Zylek> yep lol
[1:16] <Zylek> now the sound is great, too. :)
[1:16] <johnc-> hehe
[1:16] <Zylek> Now to come up with a fluxbox menu shortcut to play videos.
[1:16] <Zylek> That might require a script
[1:17] <Zylek> (...and I still need to figure out Deluge. lol)
[1:17] * koell (~galactica@ Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[1:17] * Delboy (~openwrt@2001:b68:fc00:8b08::1) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[1:17] <Zylek> Going through that Arch site with the Deluge info.
[1:18] <johnc-> python isn't a super great language imo but a decent starting point
[1:18] <johnc-> perl is just terrible
[1:18] <johnc-> lol
[1:19] * evil_dan2wik (~evil_dan2@unaffiliated/evil-dan2wik/x-0106201) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[1:19] * marcdel (~marcdel@ Quit ()
[1:20] <Zylek> <shrug> the extent of computer-type languages that I've explroed has been limited to remedial php for websites.
[1:21] <johnc-> php is where I started
[1:21] <Zylek> although i would like to pick up something like perl or python. i have that raspberry pi user guide (248 page soft-cover book) by Upton and Halfacree.
[1:21] <johnc-> now I'm deep into C/C++ and C#
[1:21] <Zylek> That book has a section dedicated to beginner programming.
[1:21] <johnc-> perl is from an older age
[1:22] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:22] * marcdel (~marcdel@cpe-107-184-225-255.socal.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:23] <Zylek> cool. any language that is more widely used on either *nix systems or dedicated servers (of the LAMP variety) would be more interesting to me.
[1:25] <Zylek> in that pi book, Chapter 11: An Introduction to Python.

[1:26] * aName (~David@pool-108-17-4-180.bflony.fios.verizon.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:26] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:27] <aName> So I've been seeing these 'RGB LED Strips' and I want to do some programmable accent lighting for my home. Does anyone have experience with these? I can't find much in the way of specs, in terms of power use, light output and such
[1:27] <Zylek> I'd like to create a very basic executable script called "omx" that runs omxplayer -hdmi $1
[1:27] <Zylek> ...oh wait, I've got it.
[1:28] <johnc-> you could just edit the one already on the system
[1:28] <Zylek> ...erm with -o hdmi
[1:28] <Zylek> ah, good point
[1:28] <johnc-> when you use "omxplayer" it's just passing your arguments to omxplayer.bin
[1:28] * EastLight (n@ Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:28] <johnc-> through a script called omxplayer :)

[1:36] * Zylek (~pi@ Quit (Quit: WeeChat 0.4.3)
[1:38] * Zylek (~pi@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:40] <Zylek> okay, "z" key didn't respond well on omxplayer, had to force a cold boot
[1:41] * evil_dan2afk (~evil_dan2@unaffiliated/evil-dan2wik/x-0106201) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:41] * evil_dan2afk is now known as evil_dan2wik
[1:41] <shiftplusone> omxplayer is a bit silly when it comes to handling inputs
[1:41] <shiftplusone> it reads stdin, I think.
[1:41] <shiftplusone> so you need a terminal windows open if you're running it from X.
[1:42] * mpmc[BNC4FREE] is now known as mpmc
[1:43] <Zylek> good idea
[1:43] * dreamchaser (~dreamchas@unaffiliated/dreamchaser) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:43] <Zylek> it auto full screen, is there a way to "window" the video in omxplayer?
[1:43] <Zylek> oh wait i see there is
[1:43] <Zylek> in --help page

[1:49] <Zylek> weird question, but why does my xterm now say "@alarmpi"?
[1:49] <Zylek> I don't remember it saying "alarm" before
[1:50] <shiftplusone> ArchLinuxARM-PI
[1:50] <shiftplusone> it's your hostname
[1:50] <ShorTie> you put arch on ??
[1:50] <Zylek> strange lol yeah arch :)
[1:50] <shiftplusone> why strange?
[1:50] <Zylek> i must be thinking of when i had another install the otehr day
[1:50] <[Saint]> Echo whatever you want to it.
[1:50] <[Saint]> Its entirely arbitrary.
[1:51] <Zylek> Ah, cool. How do I change it?
[1:51] <ShorTie> 'nano -w /etc/hostname' makes it what ever you want
[1:51] <Zylek> cool :D

[1:51] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable167.12-130-66.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:52] <[Saint]> You can just do "echo blah > /etc/hostname" too.
[1:52] <[Saint]> And editor is a bit heavy handed for a single line.
[1:52] <[Saint]> *an editor
[1:52] * Nutter (Nutter@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:53] <Zylek> ah, the hostname = static. i'd like to change the transient hostname

[1:58] * dj_pi (~dj@c-107-5-25-243.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:00] <clever> Zylek: just run 'sudo hostname newname'
[2:00] <clever> some programs like xterm and bash wont notice the change, since they only check it at startup, re-run them
[2:00] <clever> X may also need to be restarted
[2:01] * klock (~freeklock@unaffiliated/klock) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:01] * malcom2O73 is now known as malcom2073
[2:01] <Zylek> I was just wondering that. It didn't change in the terminal display, although it did change in the file.
[2:02] * binaryhermit (~holoirc@107-219-124-142.lightspeed.cicril.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: binaryhermit)
[2:02] <clever> the only connecting between the actual hostname and /etc/hostname, is that the OS will set it to match the file on bootup
[2:02] <clever> once its done booting, there is no real connection
[2:02] <[Saint]> Logout, login, done.
[2:02] * NullMoogleCable (~NullMoogl@cpe-74-74-136-123.rochester.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:03] <[Saint]> Or, piss around restarting everything that cares about it.
[2:03] * binaryhermit (~holoirc@107-219-124-142.lightspeed.cicril.sbcglobal.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:03] <[Saint]> I find the former easier.
[2:03] <clever> i just restart one bash to verify, then ignore the issues
[2:03] <clever> they will clear out on their own after time
[2:04] <Zylek> it's all good
[2:04] <Zylek> I'm back to figuring out how to run Deluge in Arch.

[2:07] <[Saint]> Friend/coworker is irate about Ubuntu One shutting down. Switches to Mint. Brags about it on G+.
[2:07] <[Saint]> Oh, the irony.
[2:07] * dj_pi (~dj@c-107-5-25-243.hsd1.mi.comcast.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[2:07] <Zylek> ubuntu one?
[2:08] <[Saint]> Basically Canonical's version of Dropbox.
[2:08] <Zylek> I haven't used Ubuntu in a, well, I haven't upgraded my old Ubuntu in years.
[2:08] <Zylek> ah
[2:09] <[Saint]> People are getting all up in arms over them closing the service down to concentrate on more important areas.
[2:09] <Zylek> I tried running Deluge's GUI, which uses GTK+. I have GTK+ & dependencies installed, yet it doesn't load. Any idea why?
[2:09] <[Saint]> Forgetting they got a service for free.
[2:09] <[Saint]> Entitlement is hilarious.
[2:09] <Zylek> was the ubuntu one service free? that would be a pretty good deal if the cloud space had a fair share of storage available.
[2:09] <Zylek> ah free okay
[2:09] * evil_dan2wik (~evil_dan2@unaffiliated/evil-dan2wik/x-0106201) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[2:10] <[Saint]> There's many many many other services that offer similar or greater storage capacity for free.
[2:10] <[Saint]> Its no loss at all.
[2:10] <[Saint]> But people love to complain when they feel wronged.
[2:10] <Zylek> dropbox recently gave me 50gigs of space for 1 year for free
[2:10] <Zylek> i hardly ever use it
[2:11] <[Saint]> I have 500GB of Mega storage.
[2:11] <[Saint]> Used maybe 2GB of it.
[2:11] <[Saint]> (Came with my telephony/internet service plan)
[2:12] <Zylek> I'm considering just using another torrent client instead of deluge
[2:12] * Macuser (~textual@unaffiliated/macuser) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:13] <[Saint]> Raspi is a bit of a poor performer with torrents anyway. Can you not avoid using it?
[2:13] <[Saint]> If you can, do.
[2:14] <Zylek> yeah, i could use another system/device.
[2:14] <[Saint]> Problem is the cap on throughput. You're vastly limited by it.
[2:14] <Zylek> although would like to steer clear of torrenting things on a tablet, so I can use it for other things while downloading.
[2:14] <Zylek> cap as in the limit on download speed?
[2:15] <Zylek> or physical ability to transfer more than X data due to the system?
[2:15] <Zylek> (inability)
[2:16] <[Saint]> A combination of both. USB and NIC are sharing the same bus. Too much IO and NIC throughput goes to crap. Too much NIC throughput and IO goes to crap.
[2:16] <Zylek> ah
[2:16] <Zylek> hmm
[2:16] <[Saint]> Heavy network traffic can take down the whole system.

[2:18] * SgrA (~sgra@unaffiliated/sgra) Quit (Quit: WeeChat 0.4.3)
[2:18] <Zylek> Well, recently, I've been downloading via wifi to a micro-sd card in my tablet (android (samsung galaxy 10.1 "tab 3")), and 1 episode (42 minutes) downloads in about 5 minutes and 1 90-120 minute movie downloads in a little over 10 or 15 minutes (those are only 480p)
[2:18] <Zylek> I've been gradually transitioning into 720p videos
[2:19] <Zylek> although, I really like the fast download speeds of the 480p. some 720p vids aren't that much better.
[2:19] <Zylek> the 1080p videos are the only really good ones, and only movies have that. i haven't found tv show episodes with that quality.
[2:20] <[Saint]> I'd be kicking myself in the face if I used a raspi for torrenting, as my connection(s) can push ~40Mb/s down the line.
[2:20] <[Saint]> I'd never get close to that with a pi.
[2:21] <Zylek> I only have a 6Mb/s ISP speed
[2:21] <Zylek> basic DSL
[2:21] <Zylek> although i am soon switching to 1Gb/s.

[2:22] <[Saint]> Theoretical or actual?
[2:22] <Zylek> google fiber
[2:22] <[Saint]> Ah. Theoretical. Right.
[2:22] <Zylek> lol
[2:22] * SgrA (~sgra@unaffiliated/sgra) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:23] <Zylek> although their actual speeds will still be faster than the competition's actual speeds
[2:23] <johnc-> google fiber is doing good on it's speeds
[2:23] <johnc-> I store all my videos on a NAS and stream them to my pi
[2:23] <[Saint]> Right. But its not even close to 1Gb/s down AFAIK.
[2:24] <Zylek> I'll have to test it when my "fiberhood" is ready to go
[2:24] <[Saint]> I run two bonded VDSL2 lines.
[2:24] <[Saint]> Mother nature decided I can't have fiber yet.
[2:25] <johnc-> I get a good 110Mbps from my isp
[2:25] * picca (~picca@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[2:25] <Zylek> there's a big fat downside to the gigabit stuff... you can only go as fast as the slowest service.
[2:25] * [Saint] nods
[2:25] <Zylek> heh. yeah mother google. or google nature. lol
[2:26] <[Saint]> I get to jump the fiber queue in about 2 months.
[2:26] <Zylek> larry page is throwing wifi balloons up in the air in an effort (i believe currently experimental) toward making wifi available in the least likely of places

[2:27] <[Saint]> I'll let him. Hell...I'm not paying for it.
[2:27] <Zylek> or co-founder/etc.
[2:27] <[Saint]> Then I get to jump on the line he paid for for free. Yay me.
[2:27] <Zylek> wow. yeah let the neighbor have at it. lol

[2:30] <Zylek> so if you were to use a torrent client on raspberry pi, which would you use?
[2:31] * evil_dan2wik (~evil_dan2@unaffiliated/evil-dan2wik/x-0106201) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[2:31] <[Saint]> Its a remarkable place. I've not been anywhere quite like it. From where I am now I can drive for 30 minutes and get to the ocean, mountain ranges, river flats, pasture land, plantations, and I live right in the city center.
[2:32] <[Saint]> Lucky boy, methinks.
[2:32] * adamantbanana (~adamantba@dhcp-077-251-048-212.chello.nl) Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)

[2:32] <Zylek> yeah, i'm a big fan of nature, including mountains, ocean, etc. ...nz would be an ideal place for me. i used to live near mountains in the mainland u.s. and i thrived there.
[2:32] <[Saint]> Does transmission handle CLI only?
[2:32] * osxdude|MBP (~osxdude@unaffiliated/osxdude) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:33] <Zylek> then i lived in a very boring, flat land, horrible climate type area for a while, hated it
[2:33] <shiftplusone> it does
[2:33] <[Saint]> I'd try go for a CLI client if I could.
[2:33] <Zylek> transmission for torrents, okay cool
[2:33] <shiftplusone> I'm a fan of rtorrent+screen.
[2:33] <Zylek> yeah, i'm going to have to do CLI onliy
[2:33] <[Saint]> But I don't torrent on the pi for above mentioned reasons.
[2:33] <Zylek> only
[2:34] <Zylek> hmmm, okay so it's between rtorrent and transmission
[2:34] <Zylek> i can see how screen could come in handy
[2:34] <Zylek> i haven't used that program in years
[2:35] <[Saint]> The only thing I'd say is bad about NZ (and I'm stereotyping here) is that we're incredibly racist. :)
[2:35] <Zylek> oh wow, how so?
[2:35] <[Saint]> Its mostly subconscious but were jot terribly fond of tourists.
[2:36] <[Saint]> *not

[2:38] * TomWij (~TomWij@gentoo/developer/tomwij) Quit (Excess Flood)
[2:39] <Zylek> which is more popular? rtorrent or transmission?
[2:39] * TomWij (~TomWij@gentoo/developer/tomwij) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:39] <[Saint]> In general, I'd say transmission.
[2:40] <[Saint]> But only because many distros use it as the default client.
[2:40] <Zylek> ah
[2:42] <Zylek> on a message board someone who said they have used deluge, rtorrent, and transmission all extensively compared them like this...
[2:42] <Zylek> transmission integrated into ubuntu but wasn't that user's taste
[2:43] <Zylek> rtorrent most powerful and light one but difficult to configure
[2:43] <Zylek> deluge is their favorite, easy and good performance
[2:43] <Zylek> although they're not talking about using them on a credit card sized computer lol

[2:44] <[Saint]> Nothing beats personal experience.
[2:45] <Zylek> true
[2:45] <shiftplusone> I use deluge on my desktop too
[2:45] <Zylek> i have used deluge for a long time, on full OSs. on my tablet i'm using "atorrent" (for android) although only because it has no cap on download speed
[2:45] <shiftplusone> it's python, but still light
[2:46] <Zylek> most android-compatible (free) apps seem to have limits on speeds
[2:46] <shiftplusone> what about utorrent?
[2:46] <shiftplusone> (for android)
[2:46] <Zylek> haven't tried it but i think it only has unlimited DL speed if purchased
[2:46] <shiftplusone> hm
[2:47] <Zylek> at least, most of the apps are like that
[2:47] <shiftplusone> the tagline says otherwise "Light. Limitless. And now, wherever you are. Introducing the official µTorrent Android App."
[2:47] <Zylek> heh
[2:47] <[Saint]> I use Swarm for Android.
[2:47] <Zylek> <shrug> maybe they offer unlimited now
[2:47] <Zylek> (for free)
[2:47] <[Saint]> Not free, but very light and powerful.
[2:47] <shiftplusone> " Go limitless with the free µTorrent App for Android smartphone and tablet devices."
[2:47] <Zylek> swarm? i have to look taht up. i'm happy with atorrent but i like testing otehrs out
[2:48] <[Saint]> Swarm isn't terribly well known.
[2:48] <[Saint]> But the Dev is responsive.
[2:48] <[Saint]> And its fast and light.
[2:48] <retrosenator> what is wrong with bittorrent-curses?
[2:48] <retrosenator> or transmission?
[2:48] <shiftplusone> retrosenator, how did the thing go last night? Got them gears up and spinning?
[2:49] <[Saint]> S/he did.
[2:49] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: I got opencpn working
[2:49] * osxdude|MBP (~osxdude@unaffiliated/osxdude) Quit (Quit: Smell ya later. Time to sleep. Hold the phone. Don't dial the emergency number.)
[2:49] <[Saint]> In a hilariously convoluted fashion...but, it worked.
[2:49] <[Saint]> At least I saw reports of success.
[2:49] <shiftplusone> Was X also visible or was it all black and just opencpn visible?
[2:50] * evil_dan2afk (~evil_dan2@unaffiliated/evil-dan2wik/x-0106201) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:50] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: I had to use raspi2png to see it
[2:50] * evil_dan2afk is now known as evil_dan2wik
[2:50] * shiftplusone kicks evil_dan2wik's router.
[2:50] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: so, with x11vnc I could see the x stuff, and the other windows, and raspi2png I could see the gl surface
[2:51] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: but then somehow when using opencpn to render vector charts it would get the driver in a bad state and I had to reboot the pi
[2:51] <shiftplusone> hm
[2:51] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: not sure if I asked already or not but is there a particular reason this channel sets +R?
[2:51] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: and this is very easy to do.. once in this state, raspi2png runs and never exits
[2:51] <[Saint]> It seems to set a rather high bar for support.
[2:51] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: so from what I can tell the bcm_host drivers are buggy
[2:52] <shiftplusone> [Saint], I agree, it would be good to try without it and see how it goes.
[2:52] <retrosenator> I wish I could try the ones that are fully open but use the arm instead of the video core
[2:52] <shiftplusone> retrosenator, they use the VC, just not the VPU.
[2:53] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: then you guys could put a web client link in the forums
[2:53] <retrosenator> and the etc1 compression appeared to work but was slow enough that it seemed like the driver was emulating it
[2:53] <[Saint]> (Rockbox does this)
[2:54] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: in any case I found a few more bugs in glshim...
[2:54] <Zylek> ok real life calls
[2:54] * Zylek is now known as Zylek_AFK
[2:55] * picca (~picca@ has joined #raspberrypi
[2:56] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: I thought the open driver uses the arm to directly drive the v3d cores
[2:56] <Zylek_AFK> on second thought, time to log out. later!
[2:57] * Zylek_AFK is now known as Zylek
[2:57] <shiftplusone> [Saint], it's probably just laziness on our behalf. Sometimes you get people in #raspbian and other pi channels without +R where they'd just be a pain to babysit. Asking the same question over and over, even though they have been answered and so on. Then you have trolls which banwalk and +R is a good deterrent. Given the channel's rules it would just be unpleasant. If anything it needs a complete policy overhaul, but that's not going t
[2:57] <shiftplusone> o happen. =(
[2:57] * Zylek (~pi@ has left #raspberrypi
[2:58] <shiftplusone> retrosenator, yeah, why is that bad? Instead of having the VPU create the control lists, you do it on ARM. The ARM is much faster anyway. But take whatever I say here with a grain of salt, I haven't played around with the VC too much.
[2:58] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: one option is setting +M and autovoicing everyone on join. Then just set -v on the annoying ones if they pop up so they don't flood the channel.
[2:59] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: I don't know if it is faster, but maybe it isn't as buggy
[2:59] <[Saint]> Coupled with a greeter that shoves the rules down their throat.
[2:59] <[Saint]> Entrtymsg.

[3:00] <retrosenator> [Saint]: this is freenode isn't it?
[3:00] <shiftplusone> retrosenator, the clock speed on the GPU is quite low. It's fast because it can operate on a lot of data in a single instruction. That's not something that's used when putting together control lists.
[3:00] <johnc-> then you get join/part spammers
[3:01] <[Saint]> retrosenator: err...where are you going with that?
[3:01] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: yeah.. well really I just need fast triangle drawing and texture mapping support
[3:01] <[Saint]> I understand the barriers, but if anything it only points to the fact that you guys are under staffed.
[3:01] <shiftplusone> We had autovoice for a while, it was a bit silly.
[3:01] <[Saint]> Its useless without moderation.
[3:02] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: for this application it may well be better without the video core
[3:02] <shiftplusone> clever, your library can do that, can't it?

[3:03] * picca (~picca@ Quit (Quit: Lingo - http://www.lingoirc.com)
[3:04] <[Saint]> A support channel should try to be as accessible as possible.
[3:04] <shiftplusone> Hard to find people who 1) are active 2) would actively moderate 3) don't break the rules themselves
[3:04] <[Saint]> But maybe I'm misunderstanding the purpose of the channel.
[3:04] <shiftplusone> nuh, you're absolutely right.
[3:04] <shiftplusone> it's just you know.... reasons.
[3:05] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: I'll put my hand up for consideration but AFAIK you and I are in the same timezone and are mostly active at the same times.
[3:05] <[Saint]> I'm also known to slip on number 3 occasionally ;)
[3:05] <[Saint]> Not for a while, though.
[3:05] <shiftplusone> I've already recommended you a while back (you failed on the 3) >.>
[3:06] <retrosenator> op abuse is common
[3:06] <[Saint]> It...what?
[3:06] <retrosenator> we have 10 levels of ops.. in another channel.. so I was level 5 and an op who was level 6 decided to ban me

[3:07] <[Saint]> Sounds like the channel is set up very badly.
[3:08] * D30 (~deo@ has joined #raspberrypi
[3:08] <johnc-> 10 levels of ops lol
[3:08] <johnc-> it's IRC not security infrastructure
[3:08] <[Saint]> I can't think of a good reason for that, but maybe there is one.
[3:08] * kevireilly (~styol@c-50-185-32-21.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:08] <retrosenator> yes well this is freenode
[3:08] <[Saint]> Sounds more like people want a letter beside their name. :)
[3:09] <retrosenator> then of course global ops or administrators are above those
[3:09] <johnc-> freenode does seem a bit...
[3:10] <retrosenator> the lower levelops can only voice and devoice people, next level can kick and ban, next level can change topic, then higher up you can give someone a lower op
[3:10] <johnc-> well, channel owners take IRC super cereal
[3:10] <retrosenator> some channels we had voice, half-op, op, and admin
[3:11] <shiftplusone> Freenode seems fine for what it is. I can usually pop into a channel, ask a question and get a helpful response, if the channel is not dead.
[3:11] <retrosenator> I was admin so I could kline people and stuff
[3:11] <clever> shiftplusone: hmmm, *looks up*

[3:12] <shiftplusone> clever, re: retrosenator's vc talk.
[3:12] <retrosenator> and then.. you have to power to make chanserv kick and ban people for you, so no one knows you did it
[3:12] <clever> retrosenator: what did you want to know about the 3d core?
[3:13] <retrosenator> clever: I want to run opengles using the arm and v3d core
[3:13] <clever> i think thats what the source broadcom relased was doing, and what the winning project did
[3:13] <shiftplusone> clever, he's using glshim to run opencpn, but it's messing things up. He says all he needs is triangles and texture mapping, which your library seems to be capable of.
[3:13] * mpmc is now known as mpmc[BNC4FREE]
[3:13] <clever> ah
[3:14] <clever> retrosenator: how many textures?
[3:14] <retrosenator> clever: I manage to get the closed driver in a bad state and I have to reboot
[3:14] <retrosenator> clever: maybe 20-50 textures
[3:14] <retrosenator> clever: 512x512 compressed with etc1
[3:14] <clever> ah, my driver only supports 1 right now, it needs to merge them all into a single image
[3:14] <retrosenator> the closed driver is really really slow to upload etc1, I think it's emulating it
[3:14] <[Saint]> Hmmm...I wonder if a staffer could give you stats on how many people bounce off the channel due to lack of registration.
[3:15] <[Saint]> But I'm unsure if this is or can be logged.
[3:15] <[Saint]> Maybe its not an issue at all...
[3:15] <retrosenator> clever: this program is the opposite because there is too much texture memory to fix in 1 texture
[3:15] <clever> retrosenator: you could maybe make an image thats ~4096x4096, holding an 8x8 grid of 512x512 textures
[3:15] <retrosenator> also I got glGetError of 0x505 (out of memory)
[3:15] <clever> let me check the figures...

[3:16] * Benguin is now known as Benguin[ZzZ]
[3:16] <retrosenator> clever: I'm using mipmaps for all of them as well...
[3:16] <retrosenator> ClarusCogitatio: normally it's compressed so only 4bpp
[3:16] <retrosenator> ClarusCogitatio -> clever
[3:16] <clever> thats about 8mb!?
[3:16] <retrosenator> which is nothing right?
[3:16] <clever> yeah
[3:16] <retrosenator> I should have 128mb at least
[3:17] <clever> do you want an SDL api, or can you handle a raw unfinished interface?

[3:17] <clever> ah
[3:17] * nx5 is now known as nx5_off
[3:17] <retrosenator> but that bit works directly to framebuffer without acceleration which is ok
[3:17] <clever> my driver only works under SDL right now

[3:18] * TomWij (~TomWij@gentoo/developer/tomwij) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:18] <shiftplusone> clever, I know you're doing a lot of things, but it would be interesting to get a glshim-like lib.
[3:18] <clever> (with 90% of the api NOP'd out)
[3:18] <retrosenator> so it isn't a full desktop opengl
[3:18] <clever> its claiming to be full desktop opengl
[3:18] <clever> but most of the api is missing
[3:18] <retrosenator> why don't you target gles?
[3:18] <retrosenator> then use glshim
[3:18] <clever> i was testing it out on wowmapview
[3:19] <retrosenator> I know
[3:19] <shiftplusone> glshim is a toy, it's not useful for real applications.
[3:19] <retrosenator> a gallium driver would be better
[3:19] <clever> and i know nothing of 3d :P
[3:19] * picca (~picca@ has joined #raspberrypi
[3:19] <clever> let me grab the guide i pieced together
[3:19] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: if works a lot better on the cubie truck with mali graphics
[3:19] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: bluntly put, but rather correct.
[3:20] <shiftplusone> A gallium/mesa driver is the end goal. It's why the 10k challenge was issued.
[3:20] <[Saint]> Grrrr.
[3:20] <retrosenator> then why did they give out the 10k already?
[3:20] <[Saint]> That rattles my cage.
[3:20] <clever> was just about to ask that
[3:20] <shiftplusone> to get the ball rolling
[3:20] <retrosenator> oh, so there is more money?
[3:20] <[Saint]> I really think they dropped the ball on that one.
[3:20] <clever> retrosenator: first, youll want to build v3d2.ko, https://github.com/cleverca22/v3d2
[3:20] <shiftplusone> to get something capable of getting the pixels there and being functional
[3:21] <clever> the dkms directions are a bit messed up, it gives you an older kernel thats unstable
[3:21] <[Saint]> Poor wording I guess.
[3:21] * picca (~picca@ Quit (Client Quit)
[3:21] <[Saint]> That guy definitely met the goals of the challenge, but the result is pretty much useless.
[3:21] <retrosenator> well didn
[3:21] <retrosenator> he.. have egl and gles?
[3:21] <[Saint]> I was rather hoping clever picked it up.
[3:21] <shiftplusone> It's not useless to people wanting to implement a proper driver.
[3:22] <[Saint]> Not entirely, no. But its less useful than what I believe the preferred outcome should have been.
[3:23] <[Saint]> The scope of the challenge was rather limited and allowed for this to happen, though.
[3:23] <shiftplusone> If you think about it, there are only a handful of people who can make the 'proper' driver happen.

[3:24] <clever> shiftplusone: ive got most of the kernel end in place, the issue ive got is with how exactly to make the 3d core do 3d
[3:24] <retrosenator> yes, it isn't easy work
[3:24] <clever> all i can get out of it is 2d
[3:24] * D30 (~deo@ Quit (Quit: D30)
[3:24] <retrosenator> clever: well didn't the other guy run quake at 100fps or faster?
[3:25] <clever> i was getting ~260 fps on a single triangle spinning
[3:25] <johnc-> woo triangles
[3:25] <clever> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6ogpgieJrQ
[3:25] <[Saint]> 1D ought to be enough for everybody.
[3:26] <johnc-> clever, that required su perms?!
[3:26] <clever> johnc-: yeah, the v3d node wasnt world writtable at the time, and the api to get the dispmanx phy addr isnt secured either
[3:26] <shiftplusone> There are people who can do various parts. Some people know how to write a 3d driver, other people know linux internals, others know the hardware inside out, but I can't think of any one person who knows all of these things.
[3:26] <clever> the dispmanx api also allows you to execute raw code on the VPU
[3:27] <clever> shiftplusone: yeah, thats why i'm stuck
[3:27] <shiftplusone> The current (good) plan is to get some design docs written up and have the 3d driver people look over them to make sure it's sound.
[3:28] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: clever: I'm rather surprised the challenge didn't inspire a collaborative effort.
[3:28] <[Saint]> Immensely so, in fact.
[3:28] <clever> i was working with phire in #raspberrypi-internals, and he helped me learn how the QPU works
[3:28] * TheOnionRack (~TheOnionR@ has joined #raspberrypi
[3:28] <clever> i was able to write the texture shader with his help

[3:28] <shiftplusone> he is one of those people who could get the ball rolling, but he seems busy with work.
[3:28] <clever> textured fonts to render the main menu in wowmapview
[3:29] <clever> but i'm currently using my own SDL backend, which lacks the entire input layer
[3:29] <[Saint]> I guess those working on it with a view to capture the challenge rather liked the idea of not splitting said 10K.
[3:29] <clever> so i cant select anything from that menu
[3:29] * lvispy (~luiz@179-125-129-2.desktop.com.br) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:29] <shiftplusone> [Saint], the impression people got was that the driver had to be done by one person rather than a group, though I could not find any such rule in the announcement.
[3:30] <clever> and even if i hardcode the program to preload a map, the 3d support is entirely missing
[3:30] <clever> http://gallery.earthtools.ca/index.py/v3d2/2014_03200006.JPG
[3:30] <clever> [Saint]: this is one of my tests of the texture, to make alpha blending work right
[3:30] <retrosenator> clever: why don' you deal with input at all? Just implement egl and run sdl on top of that
[3:30] <clever> the holes in the blue letters allow the red letters to show thru
[3:31] <[Saint]> shiftplusone: I was thinking similarly, I looked over it a few times and couldn't find anything that excluded collaboration.
[3:31] <clever> retrosenator: didnt know enough about egl at the time
[3:31] <l_r> shiftplusone, what driver
[3:31] <[Saint]> I was thinking it boiled down to not wanting to share but perhaps that is a bit pessimistic.
[3:32] <[Saint]> A lot, I guess.

[3:33] <clever> retrosenator: https://gist.github.com/cleverca22/10609835 this is the piece i wrote to make SDL happy
[3:34] <retrosenator> well sdl has all the input already, and should sit on egl, so I would avoid dealing with it directly
[3:34] <clever> retrosenator: from what i can see in the SDL source, each video driver has its own input (but some can call the input code of another to share)
[3:34] <retrosenator> that way you can also use glut, but also toolkits like gtk and qt which support opengl
[3:34] <clever> retrosenator: so the glx stuff will use x11 for input for example
[3:34] <clever> but i'm running it without X
[3:35] <retrosenator> so you use the fbdev style input
[3:35] <clever> sort of, i'm also totaly ignoring the framebuffer
[3:35] * mfa298 (~mfa298@gateway.yapd.net) has joined #raspberrypi

[3:39] <clever> retrosenator: the 3 main parts connecting that SDL gist to the other code, is initOpenGL, setViewportSize, and stopOpenGl
[3:40] <clever> those custom functions had to be tossed in because i cant see anything in the gl api to handle it
[3:40] <clever> once those are done, the lib i wrote can do everything via normal gl calls
[3:40] <l_r> afaik the driver has not to be perfect to win the 10k
[3:40] <retrosenator> just enough to run quake
[3:41] <shiftplusone> l_r, it was already won (and it was certainly not perfect)
[3:41] <clever> from what i understand, glu is the library that would normally handle initOpenGL/setViewportSize/stopOpenGl ???
[3:41] <l_r> who did it?
[3:41] <retrosenator> no
[3:41] <shiftplusone> Simon Hall
[3:41] <shiftplusone> ophcrack
[3:41] <retrosenator> glu is gl utilities
[3:41] <clever> glu handles the returning a standardized gl surface?
[3:41] <clever> fetching it via platform specific api?
[3:41] <shiftplusone> guy who did DMA work on the pi previously and had a go at accelerating X
[3:41] <retrosenator> no
[3:42] <clever> retrosenator: am i thinking of something else?
[3:42] <l_r> ok i ll avoid it then
[3:42] <l_r> thx
[3:42] <retrosenator> clever: glu generates mipmaps, and does tesselation and stuff, it is not required by most applications

[3:44] <clever> retrosenator: hmmm, got a simple egl demo app that i can play with?
[3:45] <clever> retrosenator: i could compile/run it on the laptop to get the expected output, then just beat my driver with a hammer until it obeys and does the same! lol
[3:45] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: I used ophcrack and got the admin password, then I could remotely access every machine in every computer lab, so I had scripts log into all a few hundred of them and run ophcrack to crack more and more passwords
[3:45] <retrosenator> actually.. it used all the processing power to generate the rainbow tables

[4:05] <rikkib> it is coming from the UK thanks to rayner
[4:05] <clever> to read the data back
[4:05] <retrosenator> I have done it before with a hot wire, but it's too fragile
[4:06] <clever> retrosenator: but the pi sends a stop code between those 2 modes, reseting the chip back to register 0

[4:42] <retrosenator> [Saint]: they would be very friendly, borrow my bicycle and never bring it back
[4:42] <shiftplusone> collectively?
[4:42] <retrosenator> [Saint]: this kind of thing happened to me repeatedly
[4:42] <retrosenator> and never happened in any other country
[4:42] <shiftplusone> ah
[4:43] <retrosenator> also, the people are very unhappy there, it really got me down. In the philippines people smile a lot, in new zealand they frown
[4:43] <[Saint]> I don't disbelieve you, but I assure you its not commonplace.
[4:43] <[Saint]> For instance, I don't even bother locking my door.
[4:44] <[Saint]> Or my car.
[4:44] <retrosenator> it's unbelievable what they do with chemicals and poisons there in the natural environemnt
[4:44] <[Saint]> Its perfectly safe.
[4:44] <shiftplusone> at the expense of the occasional sword duel?
[4:44] <[Saint]> Hahahaha, well...yes. You got me there shift. ;)
[4:44] <retrosenator> I met more nasty people there than anywhere I have been.. people in the park sitting around talking about how much they hate someone
[4:45] <retrosenator> it's a beautiful country though

[4:45] <[Saint]> As far as chemical pollutants go, we have here some of the finest drinking water available in the world.
[4:46] <[Saint]> And policy regarding dumping is VERY strict.
[4:46] <retrosenator> [Saint]: you still use cca to treat wood.. its illegal almost everywhere else
[4:46] <retrosenator> the arsenic is just starting to be detected in the wine because they use treated wood in the vineyards, it takes about 30 years to leach out into the soil
[4:47] <retrosenator> down in picton where I stayed a few months.. I couldn't anchor in shakespear bay because they use methylbromide out in the open
[4:47] <retrosenator> they dump 1080 in the bush so I cannot drink from the streams
[4:47] <retrosenator> then there is cyanide everywhere
[4:48] <[Saint]> That's true of many places.
[4:48] <clever> rikkib: or /16
[4:48] <retrosenator> [Saint]: no it isn't
[4:48] <clever> 168/16 == 10.5
[4:48] <retrosenator> I have been many places, and new zealand tops all by far for use of highly toxic chemicals
[4:48] <rikkib> 168 is hex
[4:48] <clever> oh
[4:48] <clever> *convers*
[4:48] <rikkib> 168/16*.0625
[4:49] <clever> 22.5 then
[4:49] <rikkib> deg C
[4:49] <clever> 0x168 / 16
[4:49] <clever> no need for 0.0625
[4:49] <clever> * 0.0625 is the same as /16
[4:50] <retrosenator> [Saint]: and my final word.. it's pitiful what they have done in the south island, producing 20x more milk than the country needs at great expense to the environment.. terrible government policy

[4:50] <clever> you can also use a bit shift, >>4 i believe, but then you loose the least sig digits

[4:50] <rikkib> wooot
[4:50] <clever> 23.5
[4:50] <clever> odd that it went up exactly half a degree
[4:50] <rikkib> just a low voltage flag to add and anything else I can easily implement
[4:51] <clever> i mean a whole degree
[4:51] <clever> need to get some sleep here
[4:52] <[Saint]> Someone has to produce it. Keep in mind its not like we tip it down the drain. Its all exported, and the reason why we have such high export demands is the extremely high quality dairy products produced here.
[4:52] <[Saint]> But yes, we are starting to crack down on runoff from dairy farms.
[4:53] <rikkib> Choice 120mS rtt to gather 18 bytes of data
[4:54] <retrosenator> [Saint]: to be sustainable you need to leave 85% of the natural environment intact
[4:54] <rikkib> temp. light and compass plus 4 bytes of internal data from the MC9S08
[4:55] <[Saint]> retrosenator: which is largely impossible no matter the locality.
[4:55] <rikkib> had to reduce the temp resolution to 9 bits for 80mS per reading delay... 750mS for 12 bit.
[4:56] <retrosenator> [Saint]: not impossible, but few places do this (vanuatu is a notable exception)
[4:56] <clever> rikkib: you can cheat some, tell the ds18b20 to start a conversion
[4:56] <clever> rikkib: hen read all of the other sensors
[4:56] <clever> rikkib: then wait for the ds18b20 to finish (it has a poll feature), and read it
[4:56] <clever> that will parallel up the tasks

[4:56] <rikkib> I may do that
[4:56] <[Saint]> I think you're getting the wrong impression of how much pasture land we have. We have a lot, yes. We also have massive swathes of protected natural forests, too.
[4:57] <rikkib> running with test code atm
[4:57] <[Saint]> And large scale replanting efforts.
[4:57] <retrosenator> [Saint]: to be fair, there are great people in nz, I am just bitter with how they forced me to sail in a storm and sent 5 officials after me and threatened me for no reason
[4:57] <clever> rikkib: i did similar in my code, i told the entire network to convert at once, then i woke the xbee up
[4:57] <clever> rikkib: and i let the xbee wakeup delay overlap with the 750ms to convert
[4:57] <clever> so they got both tasks done at once

[5:01] <retrosenator> [Saint]: but realistically it's crazy to export so much milk, from what I can see it is a system based on greed, there is no real need to do it. I also saw a lot of clear cutting, and huge fishing fleets in nelson taking ridiculous amount of fish from the sea to ship to asia
[5:01] <rikkib> Plan to run off 3 AA Nicads
[5:02] <retrosenator> [Saint]: per person new zealand is far worse at degrading the environment than philippines... the difference is here there are 30 times more people in the same space

[5:08] <[Saint]> And yes, sure. But the difference is we rob other counties blind, instead of our own people.

[5:11] <[Saint]> Largely driven by our obscure locality.
[5:11] <retrosenator> since I don't work a job, it is quite difficult
[5:11] <retrosenator> it shouldn't be cheaper to mail order something like a rivet gun from the states... that is exploitation
[5:11] <shiftplusone> we get gouged by companies. Something that costs $100 in the USA, will cost $200 here and then they'll charge another $50 for shipping, because why not. Even digital downloads are more expensive for some reason sometimes.

[5:13] <[Saint]> Oh God...
[5:13] <retrosenator> right now it picked up to about 300
[5:13] <[Saint]> No wonder its unlimited.
[5:13] <[Saint]> There's zero risk.

[5:16] <retrosenator> 4g is free now?

[5:16] <[Saint]> Also, you could've got a SIM with $10 credit for $2
[5:17] <[Saint]> Christchurch
[5:17] <retrosenator> in the cities it worked much better, but I"m often in remote areas
[5:18] <[Saint]> I pay $16/month for unlimited SMS to any network, 200 minutes call time, and 10GB mobile data.
[5:18] <[Saint]> Not great, but not bad.

[5:20] <retrosenator> but you can use it for just one day, and not the next to save money

[5:22] <[Saint]> Australia messed that up spectacularly.
[5:22] <retrosenator> isn't there only a single fiber line from NZ to the world being monopolized?
[5:22] <retrosenator> or maybe there are two now
[5:23] <[Saint]> They put all their eggs in the fiber basket and then the government messed it up spectacularly.

[5:28] <[Saint]> Borderline ridiculous.
[5:28] <retrosenator> it's hypocritical to require helmets on bicycles in the name of safety when they allow things like cars which kill far more people
[5:28] <[Saint]> I...just...wow. Great one.
[5:29] <retrosenator> but yes, reason doesn't really work there
[5:29] <retrosenator> they make kids wear uniforms in schools and one day a year they can pay the teacher for the right to wear their own clothes

[5:30] <shiftplusone> np
[5:30] <[Saint]> That's just plain wrong though.
[5:30] <retrosenator> I saw lots of kids wearing school uniforms there, it's about power and control, and not allowing people to be unique
[5:30] <retrosenator> forcing them to all be the same and not think for themselves
[5:32] <retrosenator> anyway a bunch of people in wellington told me about the paying for one day a year thing.. maybe that is only there

[5:49] <l_r> retrosenator, for example?
[5:49] <retrosenator> l_r: like camping near you for a week then stealing your money
[5:49] <l_r> uh..
[5:49] <retrosenator> even cooking on the same fire for a week
[5:50] <retrosenator> this is not normal behavior, it's only in nz I assure you

[5:51] <retrosenator> another one.. I pull into durville island during a gale, and anchor in a bay. The next morning it's blowing seriously hard and a guy comes out to tell me it is a private bay (no such thing) and I have to leave
[5:51] <l_r> it's surprising mostly because they would not need to steal
[5:51] <[Saint]> There are indeed private bays...
[5:51] <[Saint]> Just saying.
[5:52] <retrosenator> [Saint]: you can't own anything below low water.. you cannot own the sea
[5:52] <[Saint]> Many parts of the coastline are inaccessible.
[5:52] <[Saint]> Wrong. Sadly.
[5:52] <retrosenator> maybe on land, but not if I am 200 meters from shore
[5:52] <[Saint]> I'd like it to not be...but, sadly, its wrong.
[5:53] <retrosenator> anyway, it's a large island with only 200 people on it. Anywhere else in the world they would invite you in their house..
[5:53] <[Saint]> A *LOT* of the coastline and sea bed is owned by local Iwi.
[5:53] <retrosenator> this guy was not an iwi
[5:53] <[Saint]> Given to them as compensation for all the Treaty of Waitangi bull crap.
[5:54] <retrosenator> in bay of islands I anchor for a week in a place, and a guy comes along and tells me to move because it's his spot, and "you should never have come here.. " all sorts of threats
[5:54] <[Saint]> And, he may not be (no one person can be, but that pedantic), but it doesn't necessarily invalidate the claim.
[5:54] <retrosenator> I had so many experiences of unfriendly people it's really weird
[5:55] <retrosenator> [Saint]: when it's blowing hard enough that the water is in the air, you shouldn't be telling someone they have to move, and this guy was 100% european descent
[5:56] <l_r> indeed
[5:56] <[Saint]> And you know this how?
[5:56] <l_r> that's unfriendly

[5:58] <l_r> how many people do libe there

[6:02] <retrosenator> but there are some really cool birds in the philippines too, there are some islands (very few) which are completely natural where they live
[6:02] <[Saint]> It usually ends badly.
[6:03] <[Saint]> Minah birds are cool too, though technically a pest. Awesome mimics.

[6:06] <[Saint]> Those things are death traps.
[6:06] <[Saint]> But...cool death traps.
[6:06] <retrosenator> I also have a really cool sailing kayak, it is so awesome that I have caused filipinos to crash into eachother on motor boats because they were watching me sail
[6:07] <[Saint]> I've almost run over a recumbent bicycle before. Scared me senseless.
[6:07] <[Saint]> So hard to see them.

[6:08] <[Saint]> Most people are smart enough to put a bright flag on their recumbent bikes, but not this guy.
[6:08] <[Saint]> He was also stupid enough to take it on a motorway.
[6:08] <retrosenator> my recumbant was very funky because it was made of wood and old bicycles so it was a lot higher than most
[6:08] <[Saint]> Really lucky I didn't kill him.
[6:08] <retrosenator> and I only ride where there were bike lanes because you can't jump curbs and stuff
[6:09] <retrosenator> people drive fast and dangerous in nz, and some towns even have signs that say "motorists do not stop for pedestrians" in the crosswalk
[6:10] <raspberrypifan> just like atlatna
[6:10] <shiftplusone> maybe those are instructions for the motorists >.>
[6:10] <[Saint]> When I rode my recumbent (also self built) I caused a few accidents I think. Curious motorists staring at my odd contraption instead of the road.
[6:10] <retrosenator> and the roads are narrow and winding so it's very dangerous place on a bicycle

[6:12] <retrosenator> I'm going to see if I can find mine... cool you built one though!
[6:12] <[Saint]> retrosenator: don't bother with Australia, they're just like NZ only with a slightly more hilarious accent. Just imagine NZ on helium and you're halfway there. :p

[6:20] <retrosenator> yes, but not everywhere

[6:22] <shiftplusone> [Saint], Since I spend most time with university educated people, I don't really run into racists or other scum. But when I worked in woolworths, I did see the other side. And if you catch trains to get to places, you see the scummiest of people.

[6:32] <retrosenator> oh, I think that's what he used
[6:32] <[Saint]> Likely so. But its outrageously offensive.
[6:32] <[Saint]> Its a derogatory term.
[6:33] <retrosenator> I was studying human evolution, and apparently with recent dna analysis they have found that the natives in australia share dna with an eariler humanoid
[6:34] <retrosenator> as do many people in new guinea and isolated populations throughout southeast asia. In the philippines there are a people with nearly black skin which the locals discriminate against
[6:34] <shiftplusone> To be fair, we ALL share DNA with earlier humanoids >_<
[6:35] <retrosenator> yes, you are right.. but most of us come from a humanoid group which left africa around 30,000 years ago
[6:35] <[Saint]> Melanesians are an offshoot of the same humanoid group.
[6:35] <shiftplusone> Hell, many Europeans have Neanderthal DNA too, so I am not sure how much it says.
[6:35] <retrosenator> they share dna with a group which left 100,000 years ago or so, it's only a small fraction 4-6% of their dna, but significant
[6:35] <retrosenator> [Saint]: yes they are

[6:40] <retrosenator> [Saint]: isn't there an other?
[6:40] <shiftplusone> there's sometimes a tick box asking if you're Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, but that's it.

[7:01] * kwrazi (~kwrazi@220-245-146-175.static.tpgi.com.au) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:01] <[Saint]> Software.
[7:01] <shiftplusone> idn, Sailfish seems promising
[7:02] <[Saint]> Though the community could always pick up the pieces in practice this rarely happens.
[7:02] * TheOnionRack (~TheOnionR@vps2.andrewmac.me) Quit (Quit: ZNC - http://znc.in)
[7:02] <[Saint]> Maybe a few poke at it for a year or so and attempt to keep it alive, but ultimately, projects like this seem to be short lived.
[7:03] <[Saint]> Don't get me wrong, though. I'd love it to work out.
[7:03] * mojtaba (~Thunderbi@ Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)

[7:03] <shiftplusone> if the price came down, I don't see what the gamble would be. If it works and it hackable.... what more do you need.
[7:03] * dastaan (~dastaan@ has joined #raspberrypi
[7:04] <[Saint]> The problems usually arise from the HW quickly becoming irrelevant.
[7:04] <[Saint]> Which is why ibrealky hope Project Ara actually works out.

[7:06] <shiftplusone> I am not the sort of person who feels the need to upgrade the phone just because there are slightly better phones out, so hardware is rarely an issue for me.
[7:06] <[Saint]> Phones these days are designed to survive the life of the contract.
[7:06] <[Saint]> And no more.
[7:06] <[Saint]> After 2 years, new phone.
[7:06] <[Saint]> So they don't need to be made to last.
[7:06] <[Saint]> Its...sad.
[7:06] <retrosenator> that is sad yes, because most of the components could last
[7:06] <shiftplusone> Idn, my HTC Dream and Galaxy S2 are still good as new.
[7:06] <retrosenator> just replace a small board inside with the processor
[7:07] <[Saint]> Good as new, but, technically obselete.
[7:07] <[Saint]> Want OS updates? Hahahaha....no.
[7:08] <shiftplusone> hurray for xda-developers
[7:08] <[Saint]> Up yours. Bit a new phone. ← every carrier ever
[7:08] <[Saint]> *buy
[7:08] <retrosenator> I still have my ti-89 from 15 years ago
[7:08] <shiftplusone> that's.... a calculator.
[7:08] <[Saint]> No.
[7:09] <[Saint]> Its *THE* calculator.
[7:09] <retrosenator> it was pretty awesome when I got it
[7:09] <shiftplusone> the ti calculators aren't all that different

[7:10] <shiftplusone> I have a ti 83 from high school and it seems to be capable of enough

[7:10] <retrosenator> there are people who ran telnet on the ti89 and could use internet and stuff

[7:11] <retrosenator> the ti89 could do 3d plots and could integrate equations and all sorts of things the ti83 has much less feature

[7:12] <shiftplusone> ah
[7:12] <shiftplusone> When I needed that sort of functionality I'd fire up Maple or Matlab.
[7:13] * AndrewAlexMac (~AndrewAle@vps2.andrewmac.me) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:14] <shiftplusone> But I think the main feature of these calculators was playing Mario and sneaking notes into exams.
[7:14] <retrosenator> yes of course, but in that time you needed a laptop to run maple
[7:14] <retrosenator> yes, I used to play lots of games
[7:14] <shiftplusone> When I need to integrate stuff I can't do on paper or 3d plots, I am generally at the computer anyway >_<
[7:15] <retrosenator> yes, same here
[7:15] <[Saint]> I just use my phone.
[7:15] <Vutral> ^^
[7:15] <[Saint]> Debian chroot and Android VNC client FTW.
[7:15] <retrosenator> but when I needed to integrate stuff back then and I didn't have a laptop or...
[7:15] <retrosenator> yes now you can do all these things of course
[7:16] <shiftplusone> ah
[7:16] <retrosenator> but 15 years ago was different
[7:17] <shiftplusone> In one class a guy pulled out some ridiculous keyboard with a full qwerty keyboard and could do symbolic maths and other crazy things. No idea what model it was though >_<
[7:17] <[Saint]> Keyboard with a keyboard.
[7:17] <[Saint]> That's meta.
[7:17] <shiftplusone> >.>
[7:17] <shiftplusone> *calculator
[7:17] <clever> <.<
[7:18] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: the ti89 could do sumbolic math
[7:18] <shiftplusone> ah
[7:18] <retrosenator> which is a huge feature over the ti83
[7:18] <retrosenator> ti92 is like the ti89 except with a keyboard
[7:19] <[Saint]> AOSP's default calc can do symbolic math.
[7:19] <shiftplusone> I think it was the ti92, yeah.
[7:19] <clever> wow
[7:19] <clever> the 92 9s bloody huge
[7:19] <clever> i think my school only had ti83's
[7:19] <retrosenator> is obsolete anyway
[7:19] <clever> that was a decade ago
[7:20] <clever> the math class had one for each student, but they had to stay in the glass
[7:20] <shiftplusone> yeah, ti83 was 'the' calculator when I was at school.
[7:20] <clever> the teacher had a more powerfull model of the ti83
[7:20] <clever> extra ram, and an external display port
[7:20] <clever> which could be plugged into a projector sized LCD
[7:21] <clever> that then sat on the normal projector like a transparency
[7:21] <[Saint]> Probably just used it for ascii porn.
[7:21] <retrosenator> yeah we had 7 grays on the ti89

[7:32] <evil_dan2wik> I can ssh to it, I can connect to the internet fine but the Pi has no internet access and drops out frequently.

[7:39] <[Saint]> We really need a native UI.
[7:40] <[Saint]> that's one of the things holding it back
[7:40] <evil_dan2wik> Is there anything I can do to fix my Pi's connection or diagnose it?
[7:41] <[Saint]> But the idea is to build an independent playback library so any application can power its playback via Rockbox.
[7:41] <[Saint]> Over halfway there.

[7:48] <[Saint]> Its worth noting that the decision to drop ARMv6 is entirely arbitrary. They could, but, they won't.
[7:48] <retrosenator> I set up distcc on my cubie board to help build things on the raspberry pi...
[7:48] * dastaan (~dastaan@ has joined #raspberrypi
[7:48] <retrosenator> didn't work because it used illegal instructions
[7:49] <shiftplusone> would make more sense to set it up on your pc
[7:49] <retrosenator> there must be some way to limit it?
[7:49] <retrosenator> shiftplusone: I did both
[7:49] <shiftplusone> http://archlinuxarm.org/developers/distcc-cross-compiling
[7:49] <retrosenator> how do you configure the compiler via distcc to emit instructions for a pi?
[7:49] <retrosenator> because obviously it's an older arch
[7:50] <retrosenator> and I also want to use the same arm compiler to build binaries that can run on newer arms
[7:50] * AndrewAlexMac (~AndrewAle@vps2.andrewmac.me) has joined #raspberrypi

[7:53] <retrosenator> yes I don't want that
[7:53] <retrosenator> I guess I don't understand how gcc knows which instructions it can use
[7:54] <pwnz0r> gcc is many preprocessor macros that check th esystem architecture
[7:54] <pwnz0r> has*
[7:55] <pwnz0r> then i chooses the correct path to take based on which chip you have
[7:55] <pwnz0r> operating systems work the same way
[7:55] <[Saint]> Re: "I don't want that"... you don't have a choice.
[7:55] <[Saint]> You can't target a specific arm version and also expect it to be optimized for later versions also.

[8:12] <retrosenator> anyone else using distcc on a network where every machine is slightly different...?
[8:13] <Xark> retrosenator: Have a pre-build step that depoys a compiler binary?
[8:14] <retrosenator> hmm, that would be interesting
[8:14] <retrosenator> or use distcc to build cross compilers
[8:14] <retrosenator> as each one comes online it gets faster and faster
[8:14] * _BigWings_ (~Thunderbi@modemcable167.12-130-66.mc.videotron.ca) has joined #raspberrypi
[8:15] <Xark> retrosenator: The distributed build at work pre-processes files on one machine and sends out minimal compiler binary (no libs or headers). Works fairly well.
[8:16] * Lupinedk is now known as lupinedk
[8:16] <retrosenator> normally pre processing is done on the host
[8:16] <Xark> Yes, that is what I mean by one machine. :)
[8:16] <retrosenator> distcc supports both ways
[8:17] <retrosenator> I was doing this, the issue is I have two arms, and one supports instructions not on the other
[8:17] <retrosenator> the question is how to constrain it properly
[8:19] <Xark> retrosenator: Isn't that just a question of the proper options, e.g., -march=armv6 etc.?
[8:20] <retrosenator> how does gcc know this on the raspberry pi without passing them?
[8:20] <retrosenator> for the local compiler?
[8:20] <Xark> retrosenator: They are the default. You can get it to tell you its default options with IIRC -dumpspecs
[8:20] <retrosenator> perhaps I can just explicitly set them in the cflags, but I would prefer a general solution
[8:20] <retrosenator> so you can get the gcc on the rapsberry to emit armv7?
[8:20] <Xark> retrosenator: Explicitly setting them is the general solution, AFAIK. :)
[8:21] <retrosenator> ok
[8:21] <Xark> retrosenator: I don't know, but probably.

[8:22] <Xark> retrosenator: Not without hacking (which is why I say support for other [newer] arm archs probably exists).
[8:22] <retrosenator> I need a way to make distcc add cflags depending on the client hostname
[8:22] <Xark> retrosenator: The flags are for the target arch, I would think (not compile host)?
[8:23] <retrosenator> you are right, in my case this is the same
[8:23] <retrosenator> wait, I'm getting the terms confused..
[8:23] <retrosenator> the flags need to go to the remote computer compiling for the raspberry pi
[8:23] <retrosenator> so it doesn't use armv7

[10:40] <shiftplusone> With a USB sd reader, it will work, but internal sd readers can be a little trickier.

[12:02] <rahul_> raspbian
[12:03] <shiftplusone> are the bottom three lights doing anything?
[12:03] <rahul_> yes all lights are working fine
[12:03] <ShorTie> hmmm, it is hooked to a switch or router and not directly to another pc ??
[12:03] <rahul_> and it is also working fine if it is connected to hdmi display
[12:04] <shiftplusone> should this be a static or dynamic IP?
[12:04] <rahul_> ShorTie, it is hooked to a Router
[12:05] <rahul_> shiftplusone, but i want to use it via ssh
[12:06] <rahul_> I am getting display of it and internet is also working fien over there..
[12:06] <rahul_> *fine
[12:06] <rahul_> but ip addr is
[12:07] <rahul_> our subnet mask is of 192.168.1.XX
[12:07] <shiftplusone> I am not the best person to address network issues, so I'll be quiet.
[12:08] <rahul_> previously when i was using my card it changes its ipaddr as it is plugged to the internet, otherwise work with the static in cmdline.txt
[12:08] <ShorTie> those are 2 different subnets, are both pc and pi hooked up to same router ??
[12:08] <rahul_> shiftplusone, ok, but who could be right for this
[12:08] <shiftplusone> ShorTie knows his stuff
[12:08] <rahul_> ShorTie, yes
[12:10] <ShorTie> have you changed any thing in /etc/network/interfaces on the pi ??

[12:17] <mortal> anyone using pi as a X thinclient?
[12:18] <mortal> I am using it fullhf with turbo overclock and it works very well
[12:18] <rahul_> mfa298, but i used that same cable with my previous card

[12:20] <mortal> my first pi had super overclocking capabilities
[12:21] <mortal> with memory voltage +2 it is solid turbo
[12:21] <ShorTie> if you got a screen and keyboard hooked up to pi, what does ifconfig say about it for ipaddress

[12:24] <nid0> so unless you've defined a static ip on your pi itself, your router is putting it into a different subnet
[12:25] * mpmc (mpmc@unaffiliated/mpmc) has joined #raspberrypi
[12:25] <rahul_> So how to make it correct?
[12:25] <nid0> does your router support a guest network?
[12:25] <ShorTie> sounds like to me you have them hooked up to different routers, it's the only way you gonna have different subnets using dhcp
[12:26] <rahul_> ShorTie, But when i put my another card (previous one) it changes accordingly with same wire..
[12:29] <mfa298> is there something in the router config that you need to tell it about known devices. It could be choosing the subnet based on whether it knows about the device or not.
[12:29] <ShorTie> interesting
[12:29] <nid0> eh? same pi, same cable, same router connection, but changing sd card (ie changing os) brings it up on 192.168.1?

[12:32] <rahul_> i just add it

[12:33] <andrewpoi> if i try it also doesn't work
[12:33] <andrewpoi> says page not found

[15:47] <Solak> [Saint]: so in fact there's no way to tell what the safest method is to connect usb devices with a powered hub?

[15:50] <[Saint]> But even that isn't really a safe bet with some cheaply made items or fakes.
[15:52] <[Saint]> Common odd symptoms of a backpowering USB hub on a PC are fans spinning constantly after shutdown/power off, refusal to suspend, it can be very non-obvious to an end user.

[18:19] * timatron (~tschwartz@cpe-76-168-57-133.socal.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:19] <herdingcat> I would like to use a reliable filesystem
[18:20] * Mikelevel (~MoVeWoRk@unaffiliated/mikelevel) Quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds)
[18:20] <gordonDrogon> it's an almost impossible task.
[18:20] <chithead> I suggest that you can look at how openwrt does it, a base filesystem which is read-only, and a read-write overlay filesystem
[18:20] <gordonDrogon> probably more easier to try to not have the power cut off.
[18:20] <chithead> openwrt routers are typically shut down by pulling the plug
[18:21] <gordonDrogon> it is an intersting challenge :)
[18:21] <herdingcat> okay, I can use squashfs, of course.
[18:21] <herdingcat> But how do I upgrade the system? have to recreate the whole image?
[18:22] <chithead> you create a second squashfs snapshot of the system, and switch them on next reboot
[18:24] <herdingcat> chithead, sorry, can you elaborate it?
[18:25] <chithead> you have squashfs + overlay. all writes (e.g. new package installs) go to the overlay. once in a while you do an mksquashfs which creates a new squashfs which has all the new/changed files included. on next reboot you set that squashfs as new root and clean up the overlay
[18:26] <herdingcat> chithead, sounds good, but how do I create the overlay?
[18:26] <chithead> openwrt uses overlayfs. alternative concepts include union mounts, unionfs or aufs
[18:27] <AbbyTheRat> I've not seen relay like this before, so interesting
[18:28] * koell (~galactica@ Quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds)
[18:28] <chithead> also possible is lvm writable snapshots but they can get corrupted without you noticing
[18:28] <herdingcat> chithead, right, I ever use squshfs to create LiveCD w/ readonly-root
[18:30] <herdingcat> thanks chithead

[22:00] <IT_Sean> Yeah, that shouldn't be an issue.
[22:00] <crumb> LalaPlus: yeah, it's really underpowered
[22:00] <LalaPlus> What you mean 'underpowered'
[22:00] <IT_Sean> The "issues" with USB are related to power
[22:00] <LalaPlus> 1mbit is slow yes
[22:00] <IT_Sean> The raspi can't handle high draw devices
[22:00] <LalaPlus> but it is just a power switch module so it is plenty fast
[22:01] <crumb> i couldn't even use a usb keyboard, i have to wait like like 20-30 seconds between each key press
[22:01] <LalaPlus> The device has its own power plug so I dont think it is an issue

[22:10] <IT_Sean> Indeed. Sounds like you need moar powah!
[22:11] <tonsofpcs> how big of a PSU is it worth having? (note: rev1)
[22:11] <IT_Sean> 1A recommended.
[22:11] <ShorTie> i like a 2 amp'r
[22:11] <IT_Sean> More if you want to power stuff, like a hub and whatbot, off the PSU as well.
[22:11] * rvraghav93 (~quassel@ Quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds)
[22:11] <tonsofpcs> well, I can get a 4.2A psu but that won't go into it...
[22:11] <IT_Sean> That'll be fine
[22:11] <tonsofpcs> I mean, there's a polyfuse that prevents at a certain draw...
[22:12] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:12] <LalaPlus> 4.2A, with micro usb?
[22:12] <IT_Sean> yeah, but the pi will only draw aht it needs
[22:12] <LalaPlus> the connector will melt for sure?
[22:12] <ShorTie> could be your usb cable, if it is real thin
[22:12] <IT_Sean> the rating on the PSU is just a LIMIT of what the supply can supply
[22:12] <LalaPlus> Of course, but why would they make a PSU that can give such a high current?
[22:12] <tonsofpcs> IT_Sean: right, which is why I ask what the pi will actually draw
[22:12] <IT_Sean> you can put a 10,000A supply into the Pi, so long as it is 5v, and no harm will come.
[22:12] <tonsofpcs> LalaPlus: it has 4 ports.
[22:12] <LalaPlus> Ah, makes sense
[22:13] <tonsofpcs> IT_Sean: I have a 15,000V supply at 35mA. That's kinda the same but backwards, would that work? :D
[22:13] <LalaPlus> what is it?
[22:13] <LalaPlus> neon transformer?
[22:13] <tonsofpcs> NST, yes.
[22:13] <tonsofpcs> it runs my jacob's ladder
[22:13] <LalaPlus> quite a bit more than 35mA if you short it
[22:13] <LalaPlus> what will likely happen if you connect it to the pi
[22:13] <ShorTie> only if you hook it up backwards maybe
[22:13] <tonsofpcs> no, it's fused (read: the wires we use will melt)
[22:13] * lvispy (~luiz@iewlan200.eco.unicamp.br) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:13] <IT_Sean> huh... That's a beefy supply. Nastiest I have is a 10kV one. I use it to blow crap up.
[22:14] <tonsofpcs> IT_Sean: I'd totally make a pi-powered jacob's ladder but it wouldn't be safe.
[22:14] <LalaPlus> high voltage lab at university has 250kV at 1A IIRC
[22:15] <tonsofpcs> ok, running my numpy/matplotlib code against a 39.9 MB log file then waiting for the pi to bring back ethernet so i can see the results :D
[22:15] * Phoenix7477 (~z@ has joined #raspberrypi
[22:16] <ShorTie> tonsofpcs, you got a multimeter, measure tp1-tp2 to see it's heart bet
[22:16] <tonsofpcs> ShorTie: what should I see on those testpoints? (and where are they? are they situated that I can get a scope probe on them?)
[22:17] <IT_Sean> you don't need a scope... just a multimeter
[22:17] <IT_Sean> they should be at 5v dc
[22:17] <IT_Sean> i.e. 5v across them
[22:17] <ShorTie> they are marked on the board
[22:17] <tonsofpcs> oh, those. yea, I had a bad PSU and they were good after I replaced it... haven't tried while it was under load.
[22:18] <tonsofpcs> (under the heavy load that 'kills' it, that is)
[22:18] <LalaPlus> tonsofpcs: why does ethernet go away when you run your numpy script?
[22:18] <tonsofpcs> LalaPlus: the usb hub disconnects
[22:18] <LalaPlus> ugh
[22:18] <LalaPlus> why?
[22:19] <tonsofpcs> because pi.
[22:19] <LalaPlus> ah
[22:19] <ShorTie> like i said, if your usb cable is small/thin in size, you can get a big voltage drop from it too...

[22:20] <tonsofpcs> ShorTie: yea, it's 2x 24 AWG conductors for each (vcc and gnd)

[23:40] <rikkib> Ahhhh I need to do that myself
[23:40] <SpeedEvil> I would imagine 4-500 quid

[23:47] <tonsofpcs> my thermostat is as modular as I can make it reasonably. Settings are read regularly from a file, changes are written to a file, temps are read from a file handle provided by the 1wire module, the main loop does handle the relay toggling directly though. Makes my web interface dead simple php, graphing is done against the log
