[0:57] <niston> hmm
[0:57] <niston> I've recently read about an ARM supercomputer by some english university
[0:57] * hadifar__ (~hadifarno@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:58] <niston> cortex A53 or something
[0:58] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[0:58] <CoJaBo> The term "ARM supercomputer" always amuses me
[0:59] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ has joined #raspberrypi
[0:59] <niston> it seemed actually quite impressive
[0:59] <niston> but I can't find the link right now
[1:01] * hadifarn_ (~hadifarno@ Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)

[1:04] * hadifarn_ (~hadifarno@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[1:05] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:05] <niston> HPC Cluster with 1152 cores and 12TB of memory
[1:06] <niston> Cavium thunderX SoC, apparently Cortex-A57, not A53
[1:06] <CoJaBo> Does it come with preloaded malware and phishing attacks?
[1:06] <McBride36> you'll have to ask lenovo for that
[1:07] <niston> the whole thing apparently fits in a 19" rack, takes up just 6HU
[1:07] * taza (~taza@unaffiliated/taza) Quit ()
[1:07] * hadifarn_ (~hadifarno@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:09] <thescatman> that's pretty cool
[1:09] * Keanu73 (~Keanu73@unaffiliated/keanu73) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[1:09] <niston> I can't find any data on power consumption though
[1:09] * hadifar__ (~hadifarno@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:10] <CoJaBo> For some reason, "ARM supercomputer" reminded me of this wonderful quote: It's like the idiom "knock me over with a feather" or the phrase "football stadium filled to the brim with ants".
[1:10] <thescatman> the lack of data is kinda disappointing
[1:10] <thescatman> so true CoJaBo
[1:10] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[1:10] <niston> I dunno
[1:10] <niston> mebbe ARM will be the new Intel
[1:11] <niston> before we know it
[1:11] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:11] <thescatman> I did wonder how effective a Pi 2 'supercomputer' would be
[1:11] * [Saint] clears his throat
[1:11] * hadifarn_ (~hadifarno@ Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[1:11] <[Saint]> *ahem*
[1:12] <[Saint]> ....HA!
[1:12] <niston> "cluster" might be a more fitting description than "supercomputer"
[1:12] <[Saint]> That is all.
[1:12] * thescatman clears Saint's throat
[1:12] <niston> but I think it could work for low volume servers
[1:12] * chod (~chod@toy-town.demon.co.uk) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[1:12] <thescatman> Yeah, that was the word I was looking for niston >_>
[1:12] * veonik_ is now known as veonik
[1:12] <niston> ie cheap and power efficient way to provide redundant infrastructure services
[1:12] <[Saint]> I just saw your prior comment to me thescatman, and, yes - you're not wrong.
[1:13] * hadifarn_ (~hadifarno@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:13] <[Saint]> I've lost count of how many "Years of the Linux Desktop" we've supposed to have had already.
[1:13] <niston> problem is, someone needs to find a way to use CSI/DSI or SMI
[1:13] <niston> for arbitrary I/O
[1:13] * hadifar__ (~hadifarno@ Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[1:13] <[Saint]> But - yeah - it'll come at the same time as the "Year of the ARM Server"
[1:13] <[Saint]> I'm sure...fingers crossed! :p
[1:14] * hadifarn_ (~hadifarno@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:14] <niston> [Saint]: "The truth is out there"
[1:14] <thescatman> pretty much my first python program ever calculated the year of the linux desktop if you input the year
[1:14] <thescatman> lol
[1:15] <[Saint]> I want to BELIEVE!
[1:15] <niston> exactly ;)

[1:15] * zokeber (~zokeber@unaffiliated/zokeber) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:15] <[Saint]> thescatman: how did you avoid race conditions? :-P
[1:15] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ Quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[1:15] <[Saint]> set a loop counter for ~100 iterations and break? ;)
[1:16] <[Saint]> E:YEAROFLINUXDESKTOP is a NULL value; terminating.
[1:16] * hadifarn_ (~hadifarno@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:16] <niston> NaN :P
[1:17] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:17] <thescatman> god I don't even want to think about programming at midnight
[1:17] <niston> thescatman: UK?
[1:17] <ShorTie> linux's beginning of time is 1970 i believe
[1:18] <niston> epoch, yeah
[1:18] <thescatman> yeah uk
[1:18] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[1:18] <[Saint]> I once did some _way_too_late_ coding and my code failed to account for Wednesdays.
[1:18] <[Saint]> That was fun.
[1:18] * cceleri (~cceleri@cpe-74-76-221-16.nycap.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:19] <[Saint]> It was especially "fun" that it was critical infrastructure.
[1:19] <niston> heh. why Wednesdays?
[1:19] * dovah (dovah@ircbouncehouse.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:19] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:20] <[Saint]> I think I might have the snipped around here somewhere - it was a subroutine that was formatting a date/time string from epoch, and I completely forgot to account for Wednesdays at all.
[1:20] <thescatman> Mondays i'd understand

[1:21] <[Saint]> I lost all of my whats when I went back to debug it.
[1:22] * wiiguy (fake@unaffiliated/wiiguy) Quit (Quit: I just broke my connection, but no worries, we can rebuild it. We have the technology.)
[1:22] * hadifar__ (~hadifarno@ has joined #raspberrypi
[1:23] <thescatman> i've only really started programming a few months ago but wouldn't you sandbox it or something before using it as the main system :/
[1:23] * hadifarnoud (~hadifarno@ Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[1:24] <niston> testing is overrated xD
[1:24] <ali1234> yeah why not make it use decentralized p2p cryptography as well while you're at it?
[1:24] <niston> hahah xD
[1:24] <ali1234> and then put it on the cloud

[3:23] <plugwash> hmm, I thought heartbleed was an openssl bug
[3:23] <plugwash> and thus fixed by updating openssl
[3:24] <TheSov> oops wrong bug
[3:24] <TheSov> The vulnerability allows a tls-authenticated client to crash the server by sending a too-short control channel packet to the server. In other words this vulnerability is denial of service only.

[3:29] <plugwash> yep looks like we do indeed have that version
[3:29] <shiftplusone> Too many people seem to panic when they see 'version x is vulnurable to y' without realising that debian patches these things pretty quickly. Always check the debian security tracker.
[3:30] <pandather> Hey guys, what's the reccomended browser for the Pi2 on Arch, it looks like that Raspbian uses a modified version of Epiphany, but does the Arch ARM repo have standard Epiphany or the modified version?

[3:31] <pandather> firefox is fine, but no video decoding
[3:31] <shiftplusone> it's not quite as nice as you'd hope.
[3:32] <pandather> ah, too bad, I'll try to do firefoxs hardware acceleration
[3:32] <shiftplusone> It's all a bit pi-specific, so I don't know how much luck you'll have.
[3:33] <shiftplusone> I've seen people say that html5 stuff should be accelerated, but I doubt it.

[3:46] <shiftplusone> pandather, http://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt.md
[3:47] <shiftplusone> there's a slight overclocking snafu on the pi 2 where the warranty void bit was set when it shouldn't be. It has been resolved by using a different bit to indicate warranty void on a pi 2
[3:48] <Stephini> if you use the pitft it covers up all of the power ports. but he somehow is GPIOing input buttons. How do you do that with no voltage? Isn't it ground and gpio# for output and voltage and gpio# for input? or am i missunderstanding taht?

[3:49] <shiftplusone> pandather, don't do this: (force_turbo || current_limit_override || temp_limit>85) && over_voltage>0
[3:50] <plugwash> shiftplusone, presumablly this means that if you stay with old firmware you can overclock/overvolt to your heart's content without setting the new warranty bit
[3:50] <pandather> hahaha sounds good
[3:50] <shiftplusone> plugwash, hmm.....shhh....
[3:50] * cybr1d (~cybr1d@unaffiliated/cybr1d) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:51] <shiftplusone> It may be a good idea to dig that thread out, because I'm not 100% on the details
[3:51] <shiftplusone> I vaguely seem to recall it having something to do with the pi 2 being over-volted a little by default, but maybe not.
[3:52] <shiftplusone> Stephini, could you re-phrase that?
[3:52] <shiftplusone> without verbing nouns and acronyms.
[3:52] <plugwash> The Pi2 has a higher default voltage than the Pi1 (presumablly to maintain relibaility at the higher default clock). This caused the warranty bit code to trigger in cases where it shouldn't.
[3:53] <shiftplusone> ah
[3:53] <willmore> plugwash, with the old pi code that is?
[3:55] <plugwash> well with the code in early release pi2 stuff
[3:56] <willmore> gotcha.
[3:56] <plugwash> the code has now been updated to fix the logic and use a different bit for "warranty void"
[3:56] <willmore> Hmmm, wonder if I should go get the Dewer filled with LN2 and see just how far down the rabbit hole the Pi2 can go... :)

[4:00] <willmore> shiftplusone, yes.
[4:00] <shiftplusone> I think you run into other issues way before heat becomes a problem

[4:10] <thescatman> I just need to get parts together to solder a baseplate onto a copper pipe
[4:11] <[Saint]> shiftplusone actually pointed out something to me that really made me think about observational bias and the effects of random distribution. - at one stage I had a raspi that was, for whatever reason, _very_ stabvle at extremely high clocks.
[4:11] <[Saint]> However, he pointed out to me that the clocks I was using were _well_ beyond the upper bounds of settable limits.
[4:11] <thescatman> http://www.radioshack.com/component-cooler/6404321.html for US by the way. Far cheaper than an LN2 dewer :|
[4:11] <willmore> thescatman, just get the caps at the hardware store and solder that on.
[4:12] <shiftplusone> [Saint], Another thing I'm not 100% sure of. I was just going off a comment by JamesH which he ends with an 'I think'.... so who knows.

[4:12] <willmore> [Saint], was anything ever done to verify the clocks--checking to see if certain operations scaled with the supposed clock value?
[4:12] <thescatman> well I only got the pi 2 a couple days ago :/
[4:12] <[Saint]> TL;DR: it'll /say/ that it overclocks that much, and you might even (like I did) get seemingly different measurable and observable results, but, there is a rather firm upper bound for the clock and you sure as hell don't need LN2 to get there.
[4:13] * druidd (~lindsey@cpe-174-097-244-077.nc.res.rr.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:13] <willmore> [Saint], stop being reasonable!
[4:13] <thescatman> willmore, judging on the fact he couldn't keep the overclock up for more than a few seconds before thermal shutdown, no
[4:13] <willmore> Ahh, well, then. That answers that.
[4:13] <willmore> *sadpanda*
[4:13] <thescatman> It does seem like he/someone else was able to get a stable 2GHz overclock on refrigerant though
[4:14] <willmore> Did they verify that in some way? Like running a simple NOP loop and timing it externally?
[4:14] <[Saint]> I could keep it up for a while, but as soon as one tried to so any real work with it, boom - thermal limiting, and shutdown within seconds.
[4:14] <[Saint]> It would boot and idle for extended periods, though.
[4:15] <[Saint]> You just couldn;t touch it after the fact without risking it falling over. :)
[4:15] <willmore> Well, I'm not proposing keeping a bath of LN2 around so that I can have an overclocked rPi running 24*7. :)
[4:15] <thescatman> I ended up only getting it stable at around 1.3/1.4 iirc

[4:16] <[Saint]> freezers are bad news for electronics.

[4:16] <thescatman> Put the pi in, then you shouldn't have any issues with water...
[4:16] <thescatman> man... don't give me more ideas
[4:17] <willmore> Dry ice is cheap and easy to come by.
[4:17] <willmore> Also, it's dry. :)
[4:17] <thescatman> I've only ever made dry ice
[4:17] <thescatman> that came out crap
[4:17] <thescatman> oor*
[4:17] <thescatman> poorly*
[4:17] <willmore> It's hard to make.
[4:17] <[Saint]> You'd have "fun" cleaning up after the fact, but a dry powder fire extinguisher would be the fastest, cheapest, dryest method of rapid cooling I could think of.
[4:17] <willmore> We did it in HS chemestry with a special CO2 tank and a strange little device.
[4:18] <[Saint]> besides dry ice and a _lot_ of dessicant.
[4:18] <thescatman> awesome
[4:18] <willmore> [Saint], the dry non-powder ones are just bottles of CO2 in liquid form with a drop tube so you get pure liquid CO2. That would work well.
[4:19] <willmore> Blocks of CO2 are cheaper and easier to work with.
[4:19] <[Saint]> Yeah, but I was factoring cost. They're significan't more expensive to buy/fill.

[4:20] <WACOMalt> Go home dictionary you're drunk
[4:20] <willmore> For overclocking you don't want to increase the temp limit.
[4:20] <shiftplusone> although they did test them in ridiculously high temperatures, so... there should be a way

[4:22] <thescatman> Neither did I... but playing back a couple of PS1 games they're actually really fun
[4:22] <WACOMalt> I was an n64 guy,but ps1 had some great games
[4:22] <WACOMalt> Ps2 was amazing
[4:22] <willmore> shiftplusone, I'm just thinking if it simply falls back to a 'known safe' clock value, then they might not have needed to disable the thermal controls.
[4:22] <WACOMalt> So many good games
[4:22] <thescatman> Am having quite a bit of trouble with the N64 and game saves, and performance issues, and glitching....
[4:22] <willmore> I just stopped gaming for a few years.
[4:23] <willmore> Busy working. :)
[4:23] <thescatman> ps1 seems perfect in comparison. also that damn controller is so weirdly mapped
[4:23] <Datalink> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrDfRCi1UV0 EEVBlog on the U16 Xenon flash sensitivity issue, he's going into it in nice detail, sure the regulars here are familiar with what he's discussing, but good detail
[4:23] <[Saint]> you can do disable_pvt in the config

[4:25] <thescatman> Is, for example, the overclocking sticky bit, totally impossible to revert? I'm reading about sticky bits atm, doesn't make sense how you can't flip back a bit
[4:25] <willmore> She should hang out with my wife.
[4:26] <shiftplusone> thescatman, they're basically fuses... when it burns, it burns.
[4:26] <thescatman> Ahhh
[4:26] <[Saint]> thescatman: sure it does - efuses, yo.
[4:26] <[Saint]> Ask Google about an efuse.
[4:26] <willmore> If I take a piece of glass and smash it with a brick, why can't I just unsmash it?
[4:26] <thescatman> So it's actually a component. interesting
[4:26] <willmore> Yep.
[4:26] <willmore> Or something as simple as an OTP memory cell.
[4:27] <[Saint]> efuses can be _tiny_ and part of the die package.
[4:27] <willmore> Fuseable link, etc.
[4:27] <[Saint]> If it was a surface mount, it'd defeat the purpose.
[4:27] <willmore> Yep
[4:27] <Datalink> either way it's to make sure the device isn't taken out of known good specs
[4:27] <[Saint]> Well, no, its not.
[4:27] <[Saint]> Its to make sure its known if it _was_.

[4:30] <plugwash> thescatman, it's quite common to see one-time programable stuff that can be programmed one way but not the other

[4:36] <shiftplusone> What were you hoping for?
[4:36] <shiftplusone> windows? >=S
[4:36] <Stephini> if you use the pi-tft it covers up all of the power ports. but he somehow is running input buttons to gpio. How do you do that with no voltage? Isn't it ground and gpio# for output and voltage and gpio# for input? or am i misunderstanding that? still has 2 acronyms (tft and gpio but I would assume they are known by everyone here i dont even know what tft stands for just what it means...)
[4:37] <shiftplusone> Stephini, sorry, I know the acronyms, I don't know what you're asking.
[4:37] <WACOMalt> shiftplusone, every linux install I have had eventually boots to a black screen after a month or so of using it. Nvidia drivers I assume but I gave up on linux
[4:37] <WACOMalt> just got tired of constantly having to fix its squeaky wheels
[4:37] <[Saint]> WRT: QSB, on the Snapdragon 400, Its a little bit of a convoluted story, but basically, as with most things, the brute forcing method didn't pay off and a vulnerability in their signature verification was found. As long as we have a valid signature - and thanks to some dedicated leakers - we do, we can pack the our payload with enough offset so that the signature check ends up wrapping over itself and back into itself and get arbitrary execution.
[4:38] <[Saint]> tell it its a signed, secure, original and valid boot image, and it happily agrees.

[4:48] <shiftplusone> Stephini, I think if you use spray paint that the surface itself wouldn't be smooth
[4:48] <shiftplusone> paint doesn't fill little scratch-like grooves the way you'd expect.
[4:48] <shiftplusone> if anything, it makes them more obvious.

[4:56] <Stephini> well that is semi excusable because there is actually an h in that word. but watching bbc i hear lots of words without an h in sight that start with an h becasue they start with a vowel sound. then it's 'ave and 'ow every five lines.

[5:07] <Stephini> shiftplusone, if you walk into a powdershed and your buddy is holding one of each kind of torch and you ask him for a torch you better hope he knows it's a powdershed. that's my point.
[5:07] <shiftplusone> Stephini, I guess you'd say flashlight?
[5:07] <plugwash> which was an amusing name referencing both the british meaning of torch to mean what americans call flashlights and also referencing the fact it could actually st things on fire

[5:27] <Stephini> is molding the best way to make something like the rubber start and select buttons on an nes controller?

[5:30] <ali1234> 99% of the stuff people make with a 3D printer can be made far easier with epoxy putty
[5:30] <[Saint]> There's some spelling differences, too.
[5:30] <shiftplusone> Still on about that? We've moved onto rubber buttons!

[5:32] <Datalink> I suck with epoxy... but great in CAD, I'll let the machine make up for my deficiency
[5:32] <Stephini> i somehow doubt that you could make mm acurate legos where you could build a 1,000,000 piece structure and have it present without evident flaws in brick geometry.
[5:32] <plugwash> shiftplusone, can't remember
[5:32] <ali1234> your typical makerbot cannot print lego pieces that actually work
[5:32] <ali1234> lego has 0.1mm tolerances
[5:32] <shiftplusone> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Yvcizt83DA
[5:33] <Datalink> Lego engineering precision is some of the highest in the plastics industry

[5:33] <plugwash> shiftplusone, yeah that's the one
[5:33] <shiftplusone> cool
[5:33] <ali1234> thescatman: yes on VERY expensive machines
[5:33] <ali1234> not hobby grade stuff
[5:33] <shiftplusone> that guy is a wizard... always seems to take things back to first principles.
[5:34] <ali1234> so my actual trick for making lego pieces is as follows:
[5:34] <ali1234> you build the opposite shape to what you want using legos
[5:34] <ali1234> then you pour PVA glue into the hole
[5:34] <ali1234> wait about a month for it to set
[5:34] <Stephini> that's odd. i was on a forum where people were pringing legos that work with their real set and even connect to erector set and linkin log. they were using repraps but i assumed reprap was maybe about as good if not worse than the profesional makerbot.
[5:34] <ali1234> you'll get a very squidgy hollow lego shape, which you then fill with epoxy
[5:34] <Datalink> Maker
[5:35] <Datalink> er, sorry, wrong key, MakerBot is a fork of RepRap, or was originally
[5:35] <Stephini> k so then repraps would be as good aproximatly then. no?
[5:36] <Datalink> depends on the parts used, the machine calibration, and code tweaks, I'd imagine

[7:12] <Psybur> No karma bot?
[7:12] <shiftplusone> you can auto-join but if you use nickserv, you'll have trouble when hexchat tries to join before you're identified
[7:13] <shiftplusone> so specify the server password to ensure you're instantly identified.
[7:13] <Psybur> I remember you recommended nrf24. Its been working out pretty well. Thought you deserved some karma :P
[7:14] <Stephini_> seitensei, i have several other channels on autojoin but because #raspberrypi requires auth before joining it breaks the autojoin i have. i'm thinking i need to write a script for it.
[7:14] <seitensei> Stephini_: Try using SASL
[7:14] <Stephini_> SASL?
[7:14] <Stephini_> shiftplusone, I actually have the server password put in but apparently there is a delay between NS giving me auth and the join command being issued.
[7:14] <shiftplusone> again, server password is the simplest approach

[7:17] <shiftplusone> as long as you don't snip off a part of the actual filesystem, you should be fine.
[7:18] <WACOMalt> good
[7:18] <WACOMalt> I wish there were a way with Win32DiskImager to automatically snip to the end of the last partition
[7:18] <WACOMalt> of course I guess that wouldnt help if I've already expanded filesystem
[7:18] <shiftplusone> yup
[7:18] <shiftplusone> and windows is too stupid to be able to shrink an extfs
[7:18] <seitensei> Stephini_: shouldn't require a script, SASL should be built in on HexChat
[7:19] <seitensei> you might need to update it though
[7:19] <shiftplusone> (probably.... haven't tried)
[7:19] <WACOMalt> shiftplusone, actually...
[7:19] <WACOMalt> MiniTool on windows can do it
[7:19] <WACOMalt> and I just found OSFMount and Paragon ExtFS for windows
[7:19] <shiftplusone> orly?
[7:19] <Stephini_> hrm i figured since xchat has a script and hexchat is a fork of xchat that it'd need the same script.
[7:19] <shiftplusone> nice
[7:19] <WACOMalt> to mount the img and use it
[7:19] <WACOMalt> soo Ima try that next
[7:19] <WACOMalt> but I bet its messy and would break
[7:20] <WACOMalt> are flash drives safer than SD cards as far as power outages?
[7:20] <seitensei> Stephini_: If you check the second link I posted, it tells you exactly how to setup SASL

[7:24] <Stephini_> also i doubt irssi has a windows port and even if it did prolly wouldn't run well.

[8:37] <McBride36> lol still on DSL

[8:45] <Stephini_> is there a reason that HDMI cords don't have a perportional growth of price and length? I mean for 5 bucks you can get a 6 foot but going beyond that say you go to 12 foot it's already 20 bucks. that's 4x the cost for 2x the length. most cables in my experience are priced pretty liniarly by foot.
[8:45] <clever> because some vendors claim that their cable gives better audio or picture, lets charge more!!
[8:46] <clever> its digital, it will either be perfect, or it will be horid :P
[8:46] <clever> no middle ground
[8:46] <Stephini_> but i see the trend i described from within a single vendor.
[8:46] <clever> not sure why they might do that
[8:47] <shiftplusone> Stephini_, if you (as an individual) went out and sourced all the raw materials, set up manufacturing and started making cables... do you think it would cost you twice as much to make cables twice as long?
[8:47] <shiftplusone> (once you add up all the costs associated with making the cables)
[8:47] <shiftplusone> I think you'll find that the materials are only a tiny portions of the overall cost
[8:48] <shiftplusone> Plus the cheap ones really skim on the copper.
[8:48] <Stephini_> shiftplusone, in my experience it should actually cost a bit less. fewer jacks needed per foot, more bulk purchase per foot and the same machine can braid and shieth both langths with a small change in timing.
[8:49] <shiftplusone> oh... I fail at reading
[8:49] <Stephini_> again i'm looking at a single vendor. wherein quality should be the same between the 6 and 12.
[8:49] <shiftplusone> I thought you were asking why the costs DON'T change with things like USB cables much

[8:50] <clever> any progress with SMI?
[8:50] <shiftplusone> In that case, because people are willing to pay more for longer cables.
[8:50] <shiftplusone> clever, nope. I was sent some work-related work to do, heh.
[8:50] <clever> heh
[8:51] <Stephini_> i'm happy to pay more for the cables by length but only in a linier fashion unless extra length actually is harder to work with (like in fiber where to much length if not cared for right can break easily.)
[8:51] * c00ljs (~c00ljs@ has joined #raspberrypi
[8:51] <Stephini_> i'm wondering if HDMI is really any different than USB or if i could buy a bunch of 6 footers and splice and heatshrink them to make longer cables.
[8:52] <shiftplusone> A decent HDMI cable should be pretty well shielded
[8:53] <Stephini_> so then it wouldn't work unless i have some way to shield my splices then?
[8:53] <clever> Stephini_: HDMI has no error correction or even error detection
[8:53] * Pi42 (~pi@unaffiliated/pi42) Quit (Read error: No route to host)
[8:53] <clever> so if a bit does get corrupted, that pixel will just be a different color
[8:54] <clever> depending on what power of 2 the bit lands on, it may or may not be visible
[8:54] <clever> and the chance of error says how many pixels get messed up
[8:54] <clever> encryption has no real impact on that either
[8:54] <qubitnerd> similar pricing for hard disk and ssd's
[8:54] <clever> so if you hack it together with wet string, you may still get an image
[8:54] <clever> but half the pixels may be off
[8:54] <qubitnerd> x for 500gb ... >2x for 1tb
[8:55] <qubitnerd> although one cant just compare it to cables
[8:55] <shiftplusone> Stephini_, give it a go and report back... I haven't tried splicing an HMDI cable.

[8:58] <qubitnerd> Stephini_: if it makes you feel better the logarithm of the price increaes linearly :P
[8:58] <shiftplusone> >_<

[9:07] <mortal> dremel you mean?
[9:07] <Stephini_> i guess. i dont know how to spell it. :P
[9:08] <shiftplusone> Stephini_, hmm, theory... a longer cable will have a higher resistance, which you need to compensate for by having a bigger area. Doubling the area will halve the resistance. However, you'd use 4x the copper.... No? I tried.
[9:08] <Stephini_> that's possible. although that would result in a thicker cable. no?
[9:09] <shiftplusone> actually, it's more than 4x... it's 8x, since the length doubled as well
[9:09] <shiftplusone> But yeah, I'm sure they use the same diameter conductors for all lengths anyway
[9:10] <qubitnerd> yeah .. theyd be far thicker than when resistance becomes a problem
[9:10] <Stephini_> ... why would ben heck modify a sata cable instead of just swapping it out for a longer one?

[12:26] <tonic> but the writing process always ends up with that error 1117 (I/O error)
[12:27] <shiftplusone> tonic, you've got a hardware issue
[12:27] <tonic> any idea what could be problem with that.
[12:27] <tonic> is this something I could fix by buying an usb-sdcard adapter?
[12:27] <shiftplusone> either with the reader/writer or the card itself
[12:27] <ShorTie> maybe try 'Flash Drive Tester v1.14" on it
[12:27] <shiftplusone> that's what I would try
[12:27] <shiftplusone> (buy a new reader)

[12:28] <ShorTie> is the reader built in or a usb thingy ??
[12:28] <tonic> okay.. this is a somewhat old lenovo thinkpad laptop, the only comp I can currently write sd cards with
[12:28] <pksato> format SD a normal use, make a normal copy some big file, like image. if get a error, have falt hw (card or reader)
[12:28] <tonic> built-in
[12:28] <ShorTie> ya, splurge for a usb thingy

[12:30] <tonic> pksato & ShorTie, will try both. :)
[12:31] <ShorTie> lots od built in's cause problemo's
[12:32] <ShorTie> think that it might be they where built before the class of sdcard is
[12:32] <tonic> I wonder if it's about the card size or just some general incompatibility

[12:49] <geosmin> is nfs suitable for streaming media?
[12:49] <clever> i use nfs to stream video files all the time

[12:55] <clever> nfs has both tcp and udp modes
[12:56] <geosmin> huh, i think i might have shorted my rpi GPIO pins
[12:56] <clever> only real issue i have with nfs is when i set hard mode by mistake, and then shutting down a remote box hard-locks up any process touching the mount
[12:56] <geosmin> was moving things around, passed a hard drive over the PI, heard a sound, saw smoke
[12:56] <geosmin> seems to work fine...
[12:56] <geosmin> can GPIO pins short? i never actually used them
[12:56] <clever> uh oh
[12:57] <geosmin> thing is i have an electronic cigarette
[12:57] <clever> there is no protection on the pins
[12:57] <geosmin> the sound could have been whining while i moved the HDD
[12:57] <geosmin> the smoke could have been from my electronic cigarette...
[12:58] <geosmin> so i guess my question is, is smoke a plausible outcome of shorting GPIOs?
[12:58] <pksato> yes.
[12:58] <clever> depends a lot on which pins you short out
[12:58] <geosmin> ....all of them? :D
[12:58] <geosmin> the drive passed flush over all the pins
[12:58] <pksato> but, RPi still working? no hangs? no reboot? no off?
[12:58] <clever> 5v to gnd would probly smoke traces if the fuse doesnt do its job
[12:58] <clever> 3.3v to gnd may smoke the regulator
[12:58] <geosmin> nope, nada
[12:59] <geosmin> A-Ok
[12:59] <geosmin> still..........magic smoke
[12:59] <clever> very magic, lol

[12:59] <geosmin> oh...
[12:59] <geosmin> hmm
[12:59] <geosmin> well
[12:59] <geosmin> the HDD works fine too...
[12:59] <pksato> cover you rpi. :)
[12:59] <geosmin> i rebooted /since/ that happened
[12:59] <geosmin> and the drive mounted fine..
[13:00] <geosmin> pi booted fine..
[13:00] <geosmin> probably got lucky
[13:00] <geosmin> (no such thing, something is horribly wrong and i just don't know it yet)
[13:00] <geosmin> okay, i just realized i did something colossally stupid an hour ago
[13:01] <geosmin> i was testing the pi's voltage with a multimeter between TP1 and TP2

[13:40] <clever> basicaly, the server will trust the client entirely, so root on the client == root on server
[13:41] <clever> in theory, if i was to break into your wifi, i could use root on my own laptop to access your nfs server, and i would have the same powers as root on the nfs server
[13:41] <clever> so i could delete/change anything i wanted to
[13:41] <clever> obviously, i have to find you before any of that comes into play :P

[13:48] <geosmin> huh.. i ran exportfs and it worked this time
[13:48] <geosmin> didn't change anything
[13:48] <clever> i always use /etc/init.d/nfs something, reload
[13:48] <clever> running the apps directly can miss things they depend on, like portmap

[14:07] <clever> apple doesnt give the avahi out by itself, and legaly, nobody else can rip it out and share it

[14:14] <clever> this should list every system running avahi, including the localhost
[14:14] <clever> mac may use a different syntax, the pi should work for this test
[14:14] <MrKillius24> Sure let me grab the terminal and try it
[14:14] <clever> since the pi can see the windows system

[14:17] <MrKillius24> Like just paste his xml

[14:22] <MrKillius24> I can only call avahi-deamon nothing else
[14:23] <MrKillius24> but that's a completely different command

[14:23] * harish (~harish@ has joined #raspberrypi
[14:23] <MrKillius24> Will do
[14:23] <MrKillius24> Wait I have avahi deamon installed yet the browse command isn't included in the package?
[14:24] <clever> seems like it

[14:24] * geosmin (~geosmin@ Quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
[14:24] <clever> same thing there

[14:26] <clever> lol
[14:26] <clever> i run gentoo on most of my machines
[14:26] <clever> rather then splitting it into seperate packages, you have install time flags, that change the configure options
[14:26] <MrKillius24> What is it with these gentoo and arch hipsters
[14:28] <MrKillius24> I managed to ping into raspberrypi.local
[14:28] <MrKillius24> Time to play celebration
[14:28] <shiftplusone> what is it with overusing the term 'hipster'? =P
[14:28] <MrKillius24> Dunno =p
[14:29] <shiftplusone> We used it before it was cool to use it.
[14:29] <MrKillius24> Doesn't that make us hipsters too ?

[14:30] <MrKillius24> What does that do?
[14:30] <clever> this will give a real-time display as machines appear and disapear

[14:31] <MrKillius24> That is too NSa for me
[14:31] <MrKillius24> It's like top for networking ?
[14:31] <clever> its usefull if your waiting for the pi to reboot
[14:31] <clever> na, iftop is like top for networking
[14:31] * chunkyhead (~kromo@unaffiliated/chunkyhead) has left #raspberrypi
[14:31] <clever> -ar is just showing things at the avahi layer, it cant show computers that dont run avahi
[14:31] <MrKillius24> I'd rather watch the leds until it stays
[14:32] <MrKillius24> ohh
[14:32] <MrKillius24> So it only shows the stuff I care about
[14:32] <clever> yeah
[14:32] <MrKillius24> now let's do the final step of adding wifi to my /etc/network/interfaces
[14:32] <clever> some services also advertise themselves over avahi, so far ive seen distcc and teamviewer doing it
[14:32] <MrKillius24> and I will bring this back down stairs
[14:33] <MrKillius24> Why do they do that?
[14:33] <MrKillius24> Do they use the deamons to send the packets?
[14:33] <clever> for distcc, you can just auto-discover every build slave in the LAN
[14:33] <MrKillius24> ohhh
[14:33] <clever> and just fire your compile out to everything at once
[14:33] * l0ngest (~l0ngest@unaffiliated/l0ngest) has left #raspberrypi
[14:33] <clever> not sure why teamviewer does it, i'm guessing it will stream the screen over the LAN and skip going thru the modem twice

[14:35] * Giddles (~i@unaffiliated/giddles) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:35] <clever> lighttpd is really light weight, but on its own has no server side scripting
[14:35] * MarkSX (~MarkSX@unaffiliated/marksx) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[14:35] <MrKillius24> I just want ublock and to show one or two occasional videos
[14:35] <clever> only static files, until you add cgi
[14:35] <Giddles> is that normal that raspberrian installation got a writerate of 0.5-1.5mb/s?
[14:35] <MrKillius24> I actually found out my sd card only woudl let you use 512mb of ram until you expanded the file system
[14:36] <MrKillius24> Which then gave you 8gb
[14:36] <MrKillius24> I tried luakit but it's pretty hard to use
[14:37] <clever> lighttpd has 2 main modes for server side scripting, bare cgi, and fast-cgi
[14:37] <clever> bare cgi is the old #! stuff, and will even handle compiled programs
[14:37] <clever> lighttpd just runs the app/script for each request
[14:38] <MrKillius24> So will I be able to use it easily and be able to add my ublock.js
[14:38] <clever> depends on if its client or server side JS
[14:38] <MrKillius24> I will check the dependenceis

[14:40] * Nik05 (~Nik05@unaffiliated/nik05) Quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds)
[14:41] <MrKillius24> So it looks like it's client side
[14:41] <MrKillius24> It blocks the ad requests before they hit the rendering stage
[14:41] <clever> then you can just use lighttpd in pure static file mode
[14:41] * MarkSX (~MarkSX@unaffiliated/marksx) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:41] <clever> which will use barely any resources
[14:42] <MrKillius24> Nice
[14:42] <MrKillius24> I just want to do html5 and flash video mostly
[14:42] <clever> the main issue with cgi based apps, is the overhead of starting up the interperter on every request
[14:42] * shum (~sdothum@ has joined #raspberrypi
[14:42] <clever> which is where fast-cgi comes into play
[14:42] <MrKillius24> That is true
[14:43] <MrKillius24> but can video be considering fast-cgi?
[14:43] <MrKillius24> I won't be doing flash games
[14:43] <MrKillius24> just plain video streaming
[14:43] <MrKillius24> Mostly netflix and some other sites
[14:43] <clever> video streaming would be better as cgi i think
[14:43] <clever> its not a very high request volume
[14:43] <MrKillius24> So that browser let's me customize everything?
[14:43] <MrKillius24> I just need to have the fastest experience to load pages on my pi
[14:43] <clever> oh, no, lighttpd is a server, not a browser
[14:44] <MrKillius24> Server tha fetches pages ?
[14:44] <clever> misread your first question
[14:44] <clever> its the webserver, that the pages actualy come from
[14:44] <MrKillius24> I need a browser to do flash and html5
[14:44] * shum (~sdothum@ Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[14:44] <MrKillius24> And run a client side js ad blocker
[14:44] <clever> getting flash on the pi is nearly imposible
[14:44] <MrKillius24> Is it ?
[14:44] <SpeedEvil> ah aaaah.
[14:44] <clever> adobe doesnt make arm linux builds of the flash player
[14:45] <SpeedEvil> In principle, android on pi might allow it
[14:45] <SpeedEvil> sort-of
[14:45] <MrKillius24> But loading html5 video would be simple

[14:50] <MrKillius24> I just need simple pages
[14:50] <SirLagz> as long as you don't have more than a couple of tabs open
[14:50] <SirLagz> if you want simple pages, I'd go with Midori
[14:50] <MrKillius24> Ok
[14:50] <MrKillius24> Does midori have support for client side js extensions ?
[14:50] <clever> i have several 100 tabs open on chrome, though this is on a proper desktop with 16gig of ram
[14:51] <MrKillius24> ^
[14:51] <MrKillius24> Same
[14:51] <clever> it manages to eat all the ram :P
[14:51] <SirLagz> haha
[14:51] <MrKillius24> I have 8 open right now on 8gb at 1600mhz
[14:51] <SirLagz> MrKillius24: 800 open ?
[14:51] <SirLagz> or 8 tabs open ?
[14:51] <MrKillius24> 8 tabs open
[14:51] <MrKillius24> I am only using 25%
[14:51] <SirLagz> lol. was about to say, how do you count how many hundred tabs you have ope
[14:51] <SirLagz> open*
[14:51] <clever> let me find a screenshot
[14:52] <SirLagz> I constantly have around 50 tabs open ahha

[14:52] <MrKillius24> I could have a javascript script count my tabs that were opened
[14:52] <MrKillius24> =p
[14:52] <SirLagz> haha true
[14:52] <MrKillius24> Or even python
[14:52] <clever> MrKillius24: i added that to my firefox extension, lol
[14:52] <clever> what was the url
[14:52] <MrKillius24> What a tab counter in js ?
[14:52] <clever> yep, 570 tabs open in this firefox
[14:52] <SirLagz> hahaha
[14:53] <MrKillius24> How
[14:53] <MrKillius24> Hacks
[14:53] <SirLagz> if i had more than 4GB of RAM, I'd probably have that many open too
[14:53] <MrKillius24> That or C++ dev going on there
[14:53] <clever> plus 1367 tabs open in the firefox on another laptop
[14:53] <MrKillius24> What are you doing ?>
[14:53] <CoJaBo> Only 1367?
[14:53] <clever> firefox doesnt load all the tabs up, so its cheap on ram
[14:54] <SirLagz> yeah true
[14:54] <clever> MrKillius24: pack-rat, i leave tabs open with 'important' stuff
[14:54] <clever> then it builds up
[14:54] <MrKillius24> Ohhh
[14:54] <SirLagz> haha. indeed
[14:54] <CoJaBo> lol, "cheap on ram". niope.
[14:54] <MrKillius24> Reverse engineering anything is at least 150+ tabs
[14:54] <SirLagz> CoJaBo: cheaper than chrome
[14:54] <clever> CoJaBo: cheaper then chrome, chrome reloads everything at startup
[14:54] <clever> so it eats all 16gig of ram at once
[14:54] <clever> firefox is idling at 1gig with 1367 tabs open
[14:54] <CoJaBo> My Firefox seems to leak memory hellishly bad :/

[15:08] <SirLagz> but very pricey =/
[15:08] * shum (~sdothum@ has joined #raspberrypi
[15:08] <clever> i would have gone with something using the compute module instead
[15:08] <clever> more fun ports you can make use of
[15:09] <SirLagz> clever: the Fairywren was designed when the computer module hadn't been released yet
[15:09] <shiftplusone> clever, the compute module is also more expensive
[15:09] <clever> SirLagz: ah
[15:09] <shiftplusone> so as an end user, I'd probably prefer a regular pi.
[15:10] <MY123> shiftplusone, 30$
[15:10] <shiftplusone> but it could certainly be a cleaner product if it was designed around a compute module =/
[15:10] <SirLagz> plus with the compute module, you'd also need a NIC to go with it, USB hub to go with it, etc etc
[15:10] <SirLagz> since the BCM2738 only provides one USB port
[15:10] <clever> SirLagz: can just use similar ones to what the b models use
[15:10] <MY123> SirLagz: There is no BCM2738
[15:10] <clever> but rather then having usb leads flying everywhere to connect to the pi, its all thru one connector
[15:10] <MY123> (BCM2835)
[15:10] <SirLagz> clever: yes, but that's still an extra cost ontop of the Pi Compute Module itself, plus then you'd also need to design the PCB

[16:25] <SpeedEvil> Thermite will.
[16:25] <ozzzy> you really want a button on reset and a latching on/off toggle on the input power
[16:26] <ozzzy> and remote the LEDs to the outside of the case
[16:26] <clever> ozzzy: for the page i linked, the on/off button is wired to both an AVR and a pi GPIO
[16:26] <clever> when you use it to turn things on, it will trigger the AVR to start acting as a boost regulator
[16:26] <clever> for the off action, there are 2 parts
[16:27] <clever> a short press is ignored by the AVR, the pi will then begin a proper shutdown
[16:27] * MY123 (~MY123@unaffiliated/kill--9-1/x-8776976) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[16:27] <clever> the pi then sets the GPIO to output, simulating a button press
[16:27] <clever> which triggers the long-press code in the AVR, causing it to cut power
[16:27] <ozzzy> clever, I use inexpensive boost-buck regulators
[16:27] <clever> then you wont be able to have such a fancy off circuit
[16:28] <clever> but you could probly make something similar by charging a cap up with the on button
[16:28] <clever> which holds it on for ~20 seconds
[16:28] <clever> then the pi could use a gpio to hold that on
[16:28] <clever> and when the pi does release the pin, the cap decays again and shuts off the boost chip
[16:29] <ozzzy> the good thing about the boost bucks is that you can lift the ENA pin and connect it to an AVRs gpio

[17:32] <robertdempsey> Hi everyone. Any recommendations on portable power packs for the raspberry pi? I'd like to take a pi with me and keep it constantly on, and then when I get to power plug the pack into the wall without the pi going down.
[17:32] <robertdempsey> Many of the power packs I see say it "may fluctuate" when plugged back into a wall outlet, which may cause the pi to lose power.

[18:12] <perdouille> (And sorry for my maybe bad english)
[18:12] <ShorTie> i'd suggest lookin into wiringPi
[18:12] <SpeedEvil> perdouille: What moisture sensor
[18:13] <perdouille> It's this one : http://www.gotronic.fr/art-capteur-d-humidite-sen0114-19376.htm

[18:14] <perdouille> Because it's an analog sensor I have to use a converter, I bought the MCP
[18:14] <perdouille> MCP3008*
[18:15] <perdouille> I'm using this tutoriel : https://learn.adafruit.com/reading-a-analog-in-and-controlling-audio-volume-with-the-raspberry-pi/connecting-the-cobbler-to-a-mcp3008

[18:30] <mortal> anyone have i2c lcd screen 16x2?
[18:30] <mortal> I ordered one from dx.com
[18:30] <WACOMalt> Anyone know if its possible to make the pi not boot when it gets power, but to instead wait for the reset pins?
[18:31] <WACOMalt> Like it is when you've halted, but power is still plugged
[18:31] <SpeedEvil> removeSD
[18:32] <WACOMalt> Is that the only way?
[18:32] <WACOMalt> Not really an option for my use
[18:33] <perdouille> Make it crash every 2 boots ? :D
[18:33] <WACOMalt> :(
[18:33] <perdouille> (Jk, I don't know and I would need the answer too)
[18:33] <Sonny_Jim> You could build a circuit that waits for a button press before it applies power
[18:33] <WACOMalt> Nah, was hoping the pi could just work in this mode

[18:34] <Sonny_Jim> Modify the boot sequence so it waits for a GPIO pin to be closed
[18:34] <WACOMalt> Boot sequence in the OS itself?
[18:35] <WACOMalt> So it'd still get corrupted if power got cut before I "booted"?
[18:36] <Sonny_Jim> You could do it before the filesystem gets mounted
[18:36] <WACOMalt> Needs to be in halt, non booted, until reset switch gets tapped
[18:36] <WACOMalt> Ah that's an option

[18:37] <WACOMalt> Halt really should be the default powered state

[18:38] <WACOMalt> Well, at least my turn off switch works
[18:38] <WACOMalt> Oh dunno

[18:39] * zokeber (~zokeber@unaffiliated/zokeber) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[18:39] <WACOMalt> With reset held on boot it doesn't boot, but does have the tx light solid green
[18:39] <WACOMalt> Which worries me
[18:40] <WACOMalt> Only boots once released
[18:40] <WACOMalt> But that's about the behavior I'm after... If it's safe
[18:40] <pksato> WACOMalt: you need a delayed boot? or really need to change a switch?
[18:41] * mortal (mortal@kapsi.fi) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:41] <WACOMalt> I want non boot
[18:41] <WACOMalt> Unless I push power/reset
[18:41] <WACOMalt> Even if powered
[18:42] <pksato> power on on suppend mode?
[18:42] <WACOMalt> Yes
[18:42] <Sonny_Jim> Single pole switch that closes the reset pins
[18:43] <WACOMalt> But is that safe? When I plug power with reset bridged the green light is active
[18:43] <WACOMalt> Solid
[18:43] <WACOMalt> Not sure if it's the same as suspend/halted
[18:44] <Sonny_Jim> Well, it's not
[18:44] <pksato> no.
[18:44] <Sonny_Jim> But afaik there isn't anyway to bring the Pi out of suspend
[18:44] <WACOMalt> Is it rapid fire resetting?
[18:44] <WACOMalt> To get out of suspend the rest pins work.
[18:45] <ShorTie> perdouille, twas thinkin, i know, dangerous, but what model pi are you using ??
[18:45] <pksato> like pc, all power if reset are pressed. but, not boot.
[18:45] <WACOMalt> And on boot finally releasing them resumes boot
[18:45] <Sonny_Jim> From what I remember, suspend/halt shuts down the USB and GPIO bus, so you can't actually send it a signal to unsuspend
[18:45] <WACOMalt> I'm not using gpio though
[18:45] <WACOMalt> I don't think...
[18:46] <pksato> way you need this condition?

[20:48] <abnormal> I am waiting for the Pi-Top to launch in market
[20:48] <ali1234> put some DC motor drives as well
[20:48] <ali1234> all the DC driver boards out there totally suck
[20:48] <abnormal> yes they do suk
[20:49] <ali1234> using a LED driver to PWM motors is like the worst idea since using linear speed control
[20:49] <abnormal> lol like a short cut...
[20:49] <McBride36> use an hbridge
[20:50] <ali1234> McBride36: that gves you direction control, now how you going to get speed control?
[20:50] <McBride36> with the rpi yes?
[20:50] <ali1234> yes
[20:51] <McBride36> you can pulse the pi gpio
[20:52] <McBride36> let me find the library i used for PWM on the pi
[20:53] <ali1234> what you actually want is something like this: http://shop.pimoroni.com/products/adafruit-dc-stepper-motor-hat-for-raspberry-pi-mini-kit
[20:53] <ali1234> except instead of the LED driver that tops out at 1kHz, use an AVR
[20:53] <ali1234> then remove all the pointless prototyping space so the board doesn't block the camera connector

[20:54] <ali1234> then it would be actually good

[23:24] <Bilby> Psybur no. Pi is only going to draw what it needs
[23:24] <Psybur> Ok
[23:24] <Bilby> *assuming nothing is damaged
[23:25] <Bilby> ... but the odds of that giving up an honest 3A are pretty low anyhow. You might get a good 1 - 1.5A out of it...
[23:25] <Psybur> What makes you say that?
[23:26] <ShadowJK> To actually push 2A to Pi, while also staying within Pi's recommended voltage range, you actually need quite thick cables
[23:26] <Bilby> price.
[23:26] <Bilby> something you can make and sell for $10 that fits in a wall wart isn't going to give you 3A

[23:27] <ShorTie> buck convertor are rated at 3amps
[23:27] <Bilby> for reference, I have a PSU that gives 3A @ 12V, it's about the size of a hoagie sandwhich
[23:28] <Bilby> True but there's more to a decnet power supply than just dropping the voltage
[23:28] <Bilby> it might be fine, who knows. my experience has not reflected that.
[23:29] * noturboo_ (~noturboo@va1.hashbang.sh) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:30] <ShorTie> it got the wrong end on it you know ??
[23:30] <Psybur> Is there an advantage to using a barrel plug? More secure? Could I possibly use that mini usb port for anything while the pi is running?

[23:30] <ShorTie> it's only for power

[23:38] <ShorTie> most power issues are caused by 'cheap' micro-usb cables, imho
[23:39] <Foxhoundz> It didn't work
[23:39] <Foxhoundz> :(
[23:39] <Foxhoundz> I can't control the onboard LEDs because Raspbian asks for root permissions
[23:39] <Foxhoundz> using sudo doesn't seem to cut it
[23:40] <Bilby> Here it is... http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Mean-Well/PS-15-5/?qs=pqZ7J9Gt%2Fmo37fiR3%252bDVeQ%3D%3D

[23:40] <Bilby> that took forever to dig out. It's actually pretty affordable

[23:42] <Bilby> grr. i do wish Rpi had included pin points for power as well as the micro USB. MicroUSB ends are so hard to find
