[20:59] <HoloPed> good enough for me
[21:00] <Armand> HoloPed, You can, but the 2596 (I think) is better.
[21:00] * ctarx (~ctarx@p4FE6DEE7.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:01] <pksato> HoloPed: yes, but, 7805A lost lot of energy as heat, use more moderm switching psu.
[21:01] <HoloPed> I have the 7805A but would have to wait 2-3 weeks for the 2596
[21:01] <HoloPed> what is better about it ?
[21:01] * fiddlinmacx (~fiddlinma@ Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[21:01] <Armand> I use one to supply 5.25v to a DIY USB board.
[21:01] * Fishy__ (~fishy@static-71-179-48-66.bltmmd.fios.verizon.net) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[21:01] <pksato> or, car 12V to 5V converter.
[21:02] <HoloPed> I have one, I think it uses a coil
[21:03] * Vibe (~Vibe@gateway/tor-sasl/vib3) Quit (Quit: bye)
[21:03] * Kirito (~Kirito@pdpc/supporter/student/kirito) Quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
[21:04] <HoloPed> how long can I power a Pi + PITFT screen from a 2200mah bettery ?
[21:04] <HoloPed> would it last an hour ?
[21:06] * m8 (~m@unaffiliated/m8) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:07] <pksato> ((2200*11.1)/3)*0.8
[21:08] <pksato> ((2200*11.1)/3000)*0.8=~6h
[21:09] * pksato (~PEBKAC@unaffiliated/pksato) Quit (Quit: Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair)
[21:10] <HoloPed> why did you divide by 3000 ?
[21:11] <Armand> Ask when he comes back.
[21:11] <HoloPed> oh right
[21:11] <Armand> lol
[21:11] <HoloPed> ha
[21:11] <Aldem> ^^
[21:11] <Aldem> Personnal question for you guys
[21:11] * dantti (~dantti@ Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[21:12] <Aldem> Why did you get a Raspberry and not an Arduino ?
[21:12] <HoloPed> two different things for two different uses
[21:12] <HoloPed> I have both
[21:12] <Armand> I have both, but the arduino is used a voltage monitor.
[21:13] <HoloPed> arduino is a micro controller
[21:13] <HoloPed> pi is a micro computer
[21:13] <Armand> It controls the switching board for a backup transformer.
[21:13] <HoloPed> exactly
[21:13] <Aldem> I see, nice, nice way to put it HoloPed, thanks
[21:13] * x1337807x (~x1337807x@c-76-115-7-194.hsd1.or.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:15] * eru (~neutrino@unaffiliated/electron/x-8286743) Quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
[21:16] <xxValiumxx> Aldem I have both. They are very different devices.
[21:16] <xxValiumxx> but I suppose that I would have gone arduino initially because of cost and availability
[21:17] <xxValiumxx> I wanted a pi when they first came out but the demand far outstripped the supply.
[21:19] * lucasub (~luca@host168-175-dynamic.4-87-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[21:19] <HoloPed> Aldem, because the Aruino is a real-time controller IC, and the PI is not, it's actually easier to make something like a quadcopter flight controller from an Arduino , even though it's much weaker processing power
[21:20] <Aldem> Yeah
[21:21] <Froolap> but which one won?
[21:22] * ozzzy is waiting for the Ruggeduino to come back in stock
[21:22] * Milhouse (~Milhouse@kodi/staff/milhouse) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[21:23] <ozzzy> erp... wrong chan.... sorry

[21:23] * Vutral (~ss@mirbsd/special/Vutral) Quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
[21:25] <Armand> Froolap, won what?
[21:26] <Froolap> On this planet everything fights everything else untill there is only one left.
[21:26] * Keanu73 (~Keanu73@unaffiliated/keanu73) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:26] <Armand> .....
[21:27] <Armand> Sounds like a rhetorical conundrum.
[21:27] <HoloPed> whoever dies with the most files wins
[21:29] <Froolap> In the beginning we had the lightbulb and it seemed like a clear winner, but now we have the LED and led's are pushing the lightbulb out of the market share.

[21:41] * Noldorin (~noldorin@unaffiliated/noldorin) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:41] * teepee_ (~teepee@gateway/tor-sasl/teepee) has joined #raspberrypi
[21:42] <Armand> ShorTie, for the sake of a more harmful solution.. �_�
[21:43] <ShorTie> i hear that
[21:44] * teepee (~teepee@gateway/tor-sasl/teepee) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[21:45] * teepee_ is now known as teepee
[21:46] <ShorTie> why oh why, can they not let the free market and peeps decide what they want
[21:49] <xxValiumxx> because most of us are stupid. Myself included at times.
[21:49] <ozzzy> people in general are dumb as rocks
[21:50] <ozzzy> 100 individually intelligent folk put together in a room become something akin to a mob of fenceposts
[21:51] <plugwash> the crazy thing is in the UK at least you can't buy regular pearl lightbulbs
[21:51] <xxValiumxx> "Yeah, turn it on....the power button...its on the front... what do you mean you can't see it? Its on the front, says power on it... there ya go."
[21:51] <plugwash> but you CAN buy the slightly less efficient rough service pearl lightbulbs
[21:51] <ozzzy> I got paid a 4 hour callout by IBM once to go plug in a Unix server
[21:51] <xxValiumxx> actual conversation.
[21:53] <ozzzy> you'd be amazed how many people STILL don't get that the 0|1 symbol means 'on off'
[21:53] <HoloPed> well most people believe that an imaginary guy in the sky is controlling their lives and that angles and fairies walk the earth
[21:53] <xxValiumxx> I do freelance computer services in my area. My services are generally half fixing things, half education.
[21:53] <ozzzy> HoloPed, dunno about angels... but there are lots of fairies
[21:55] <plugwash> though I think the incandescent ban was barking up the wrong tree
[21:55] <xxValiumxx> ozzzy I just tell people that the O means off. Seems easier for them to process.
[21:56] <plugwash> the biggest problem I see in lighting is halogen downlights, sure they have slightly better lumens per watt than traditional incandescents but thier beam patters are totally unsuitable for room lighting and people compensate for this by fitting them in large numbers resulting in crazy power use
[21:56] <HoloPed> LED lights
[21:56] <HoloPed> are good ?
[21:57] <HoloPed> blue light kills your retina slowly
[21:57] <ozzzy> I like Sylvania Soft-white 60W bulbs... that's what I like, that's what I use... I bought a boatload of them
[21:58] <xxValiumxx> not to mention that it can seriously screw up your sleeping patterns

[22:07] <shiftplusone> is it a terrible stoner comedy?
[22:08] <Froolap> It's a comedy but nothing to do with stoners.

[23:54] <eggbeater> i don't think I know what i2c is.
[23:54] <shiftplusone> I use i2c all the time, I just try to avoid python as much as possible.
[23:55] <Encapsulation> I have sparkys miniph and miniec boards, they read from EC and PH probes and have ADC
[23:56] <Encapsulation> I'm trying to read the data with my pi. I got i2ctools and the modules loaded and I removed the conflicts that were showing "UU" but now no device shows up, maybe there is an easier way
[23:56] <Encapsulation> there are some example sketches for arduino but I'm not sure how much they will help me
