[1:07] <shinji257> do uname -a

[1:09] <Almoullim> yes but will it work with it just as the rasbian
[1:09] <mlelstv> This shows how to read keyboard events. But it wants to use those entries under /dev/input that I asked for.
[1:10] <Almoullim> i mean it work super fast in my lenonvo i7 laptop but will that be the case or a 512 ram pi!!
[1:10] <Almoullim> should i just stick with it and try to fix the damn thing

[1:12] <mlelstv> what wireless keyboard is this?
[1:13] <mlelstv> also, try to type something on that keyboard and then quickly look at /dev/input :)
[1:13] <puzzola> Almoullim: Thanks, by the way. I'd never heard of Manjaro before, now I have a new distro to try :)
[1:14] * gbaman (~gbaman@members.unit1.farsetlabs.org.uk) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[1:15] <Almoullim> puzzola: you should try it, the best distro i have ever used, i wanted arch by the way but didn't want the hassle of installing everything at the time

[1:17] <mlelstv> I would have started by just using hexdump. Because that's what you probably have installed already
[1:17] <Almoullim> mlelstv: it worked
[1:17] * weemsledeux (~textual@unaffiliated/weems) has joined #raspberrypi
[1:17] <mlelstv> what did work? typing and then looking ?
[1:17] <Almoullim> yea
[1:17] <mlelstv> that's some kind of power saver mode in the keyboard.

[1:54] <Almoullim> but the way some button i don't know which one or which two buttons, anyway, they act like the "ls" commands and returns the files i have
[1:54] <Almoullim> by *
[1:54] <mlelstv> johntrap, split out gnd is bad. gnd must be connected everywhere.

[2:18] <mlelstv> USB is supposed to be safe
[2:20] <warpie> when data is constantly going in/out a USB and you are unplugging the device, what you think it would do?

[2:58] <sir_galahad_ad> the A+ and B+ differ from the original A and B in that they have more gpio pins
[3:00] <Heasummn> mazyar, it's really simple, and nothing too complex if you have some asm background. I think some young kid that likes to proggram could take it on
[3:00] <Almoullim> mlelstv: the installation is done now im on the login screen and the keyboard is working

[3:01] <mazyar> Heasummn: at&t syntax or something like that
[3:02] <sir_galahad_ad> yes that
[3:02] <Heasummn> I like my higher level things up in C++ and Python realm, so I don't do much assembly. But I've never really dealt with intel syntax except for once whilst I had to write a compiler for a toy language

[3:03] <Heasummn> what does MIPS fall under?
[3:03] <sir_galahad_ad> what do you mean?
[3:04] <Heasummn> does it fall under intel syntax or att syntax?
[3:04] <Heasummn> as I've done a lot of MIPS
[3:06] <sir_galahad_ad> most processor manufacturers define their own syntax, at&t syntax is a kind of catch all syntax designed to be universal, but it's often confusing because the operators for the nmemonics get switched around
[3:07] <Heasummn> is there a difference between ver 1 and ver 2 in terms of where the GPIO pins for certain things are located?
[3:07] <sir_galahad_ad> when you say ver 1 and ver 2

[3:09] <sir_galahad_ad> on the pi A+, B+, pi 2 B, and pi zero there are 40 gpio pins
[3:09] <DreadWingKnight> the A+, b+ zero and the 2 have identical gpio pinouts
[3:09] <DreadWingKnight> the original a and original b have the same pinouts
[3:09] <sir_galahad_ad> so if you're counting from the bottom up you might be misled
[3:09] <DreadWingKnight> and the pinout layout for the first 26 pins (I think it is) is common between both generations
[3:09] * vdamewood (~vdamewood@unaffiliated/vdamewood) Quit (Quit: Life beckons.)
[3:10] <sir_galahad_ad> but it should be noted that the A+ and B+ are rpi 1 and have the 40 pin layout that the orginal A and B don't

[3:10] <DreadWingKnight> http://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Raspberry-Pi-GPIO-Layout-Revision-1.png there's the original A and B GPIO

[3:11] * swift110-phone (~swift110-@unaffiliated/swift110) has joined #raspberrypi
[3:11] <swift110-phone> Hey
[3:11] <DreadWingKnight> first 26 pins are identical across all versions of the RPI
[3:11] <Heasummn> some more googling also tells me, that the peripherel base is located at GPIO pin 47 now, rather than 16
[3:12] <sir_galahad_ad> Heasummn: it should also be noted that though the pins are in the same places there are 3 different ways to number them
[3:13] <sir_galahad_ad> Heasummn: the pins can be numbered by the pinout from the SoC, the physical location on the board, or the number that the wiringPi library uses
[3:13] <brianx> i thought one of the spi or i2c pins was different. i could be wrong.
[3:16] <DreadWingKnight> brianx: based on the two images I linked, doesn't look like
[3:18] <brianx> DreadWingKnight: i'm not at my desk, but i think it's documented in gordon's wiring pi project.
[3:18] <brianx> i wanna say it's secondary spi select.

[11:09] <whonut> hi. I would like some way to wirelessly communicate the state of a simple switch to my rpi. I had the idea of just hooking an IR LED up to power through the switch and having a receiver on the RPi. Does this sound like it'd do the trick?
[11:10] <whonut> Does anyone have any other suggestions?
[11:11] <mgottschlag> whonut: just wire the switch directly to the pi's gpio and setup the GPIO pin as an input with pullup
[11:11] <mgottschlag> ah, wai
[11:11] <mgottschlag> t, wireless
[11:11] <mgottschlag> well, you cannot use arbitrary IR receivers
[11:12] <mgottschlag> those expect a 38kHz modulated signal (or similar frequencies) to distinguish the signal from other IR noise
[11:13] <mgottschlag> you can use a simple IR phototransistor, but then you need very strong IR illumination to get the right signal/noise ratio, and you need an amplifier/level detector before you can feed the signal into the pi's GPIO pin
[11:13] <mgottschlag> there are 38kHz IR signal generation ICs though which you could use iirc
[11:14] <whonut> mgottschlag hmm. More complicated than I thought (which is sort of why I asked). Thank you

[11:38] <ace139> whonut, I will just need it for monitoring purpose
[11:39] <whonut> so you want a plot/plots, basically?
[11:39] <ace139> whonut, didn't get you
[11:41] <whonut> ace139 the best solution depends on what you want to do with the data. If you just need the raw data, upload it to dropbox. If you just need to plot it on some axes then plot.ly/dashboard.ly will do the trick beautifully. If you want something more custom then you need some sort of server space.
[11:42] <whonut> that web address is 2 separate ones
[11:42] <ace139> whonut, like suppose let me give you a scenario, Suppose a dozen of temperature sensor places in different places in my house. They are getting data into the Raspberry Pi. Now suppose I go for a holiday, I would like to monitor the data to check for any abrupt changes in temperature in my home.
[11:43] <whonut> ace139 do you want the pi to notify you of those changes or do you just want to see the data and decide for yourself?
[11:43] <whonut> I should've asked for a scenario to begin with, apologies
[11:43] <ace139> whonut, I want to see the data and decide myself
[11:44] <mgottschlag> ace139: what programming languages do you know? I bet that all of them have HTTP libraries which can make POST requests to a webserver with your backend code
[11:45] <ace139> mgottschlag, I know python
[11:45] <mgottschlag> and then your backend can add the data to a database, and a different web page can load all data from the database and display it

[11:47] <whonut> ace139 I would recommend Google App Engine and Bottle or flask
[11:47] <whonut> I'll just fetch some links

[11:52] <ace139> mgottschlag, the request module looks to work good.
[11:53] <whonut> ace139 The ridiculously low-tech solution is to have the Pi assemble a static web page and host that on Dropbox
[11:53] <whonut> but that's no fun
[11:53] <ace139> whonut, thats true
[11:53] <ace139> whonut, but maybe it will work with ease
[11:54] <ace139> whonut, mgottschlag then I should do is save the readings in a DB like SQLite ?

[16:14] <mgottschlag> on one GPIO pin? you can have as many open-drain devices as you want on it
[16:14] <mgottschlag> there is no current flowing into the pin, because the pin is configured as an input
[16:15] <mgottschlag> you don't want more than one pullup though, because the pullup actually defines the current which flows through the sensor's transistor when the switch activates
[16:15] <mgottschlag> (and, because no current flows if no switch is active, you don't need more than one resistor anyways
[16:15] <mgottschlag> )
[16:18] <mgottschlag> dewp: a very similar system is used on I2C buses... because the transistors only pull towards ground, short circuits are not possible (unlike situations where one sensor pulls "up", the other pulls "down")

[16:53] <Bilby> lol
[16:53] <christo_m> i just want to know if i can use http://zerocharactersleft.blogspot.ca/2011/11/pcb-as-capacitive-soil-moisture-sensor.html without any leeching in the soil or somethin
[16:53] <Habbie> i vaguely recall being at work earlier today
[16:53] <Bilby> christo_m: it’s made from $something_solder_doesnt_stick_to

[16:53] <christo_m> Bilby: yes but its also waterproof which is key
[16:53] <Armand> christo_m: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printed_circuit_board
[16:53] <christo_m> which is the property i care about
[16:53] <christo_m> my concern is how safe is it to just have in the soil
[16:53] <christo_m> can i eat off a plate of PCB?
[16:54] <Bilby> since that’s designed to go into the soil i would imagine it’s safe - besides, the amount of solder mask is very small
[16:54] <christo_m> Bilby: well that particular design has nothing special to make it better for the soil
[16:54] <christo_m> it just so happens to be the material he recommended because it doesn't oxidize and it can handle that candition
[16:54] <christo_m> what i mean is it isnt Soil specific PCB
[16:55] * xamindar (~quassel@c-24-4-76-244.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:55] <Bilby> soil is mostly organic material and crushed rock and clay. the only thing you need to be worried about is moisture, and I don’t think there’s anything on a PCB that will leach out with moisture
[16:56] <christo_m> Bilby: that answers my question
[16:56] <christo_m> thank you.
[16:56] <Armand> Copper will oxide, I'd reckon.

[16:56] * Sisco_ (Sisco@unaffiliated/sisco/x-4156292) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:56] <christo_m> though i guess it may be possible that the solder mask will scratch from hitting the rocks and what not in the soil
[16:56] <christo_m> so eventually..
[16:56] <christo_m> im not sure how to remedy that though
[16:57] <gordonDrogon> why do you want to put a PCB in the soil?
[16:57] <christo_m> gordonDrogon: please refer to the link i pasted above

[17:01] <gordonDrogon> ah right.
[17:02] <christo_m> gordonDrogon: safe?
[17:02] <christo_m> i wonder what i would use to coat everything from damage
[17:02] <christo_m> epoxy or something?
[17:03] <christo_m> a lot of the wiring and the pi itself will be in a potentially humid/wet environment so i need to construct some good housing for it
[17:03] <gordonDrogon> I'd consider it "disposable" and order several. However check the PCB substrate - the sides won't be coated in anything and not all PCBs are waterproof...
[17:04] <gordonDrogon> The Pi is the least of the issues - you just use best practices - sealed container, wires coming out the bottom, keep it powered up - heat will dispell moisture.
[17:04] <christo_m> gordonDrogon: well the design and place i submitted it too was the same as he did in the blog
[17:04] <gordonDrogon> I'd be tempted to dip the whole thing in some coating - marine varnish or something.
[17:04] <christo_m> the Eagle design has soldermask applied to both sides and according to his water test it worked
[17:05] <christo_m> gordonDrogon: sounds poisonous lol
[17:05] <christo_m> im also not sure how that will affect the capacitance reading but i guess it shouldnt matter if its the Whole thing
[17:05] <gordonDrogon> tell that to the fishes that millions of yachts are floating over...
[17:05] <christo_m> rekt
[17:05] <christo_m> the plural of fish is fish
[17:05] <Bilby> implying that yacht owners care what happens to fish?
[17:05] <Bilby> :P
[17:06] <gordonDrogon> I don't really care for fishes or fish really and correct me again and I'll simply block you.
[17:06] <christo_m> don't be mad man
[17:06] <christo_m> its not worth
[17:06] <Bilby> The soil sensor’s capacitence measurement would probably be affected by any coating, not sure if you can calibrate it out
[17:06] <christo_m> Bilby: well ill have to calibrate for the solder mask anyway
[17:07] <christo_m> so as long as its consistent it shouldn't matter
[17:07] <gordonDrogon> silicone sealant as used in aquariums.
[17:08] <gordonDrogon> fibreglass gelcoat

[17:09] <gordonDrogon> calibrating your own sensor is easy - dip it in a jar of dry soil, take a reading, then water it, take a reading - graph and draw a line...
[17:09] <gordonDrogon> y=mx +c and all that.
[17:09] <christo_m> i was actually going to first use air and water as thresholds
[17:09] <christo_m> then do the soil thing
[17:09] <christo_m> i want to make sure the 6 i ordered work relavitevly close
[17:10] <christo_m> but yes thats the idea
[17:10] <christo_m> im pretty excited. i hope the dht22 i ordered actually works
[17:10] <christo_m> i was watching youtube reviews and people got mixed results.. like one person ordered 10 and 3 of them were off by a pretty big error margin
[17:11] <christo_m> ideally if its off its off consistently so i can just adjust for it in the code
[17:11] <Habbie> the dht11 is notorious for being off
[17:11] <christo_m> no im talking dht22

[17:12] <christo_m> which means theres a current running through it, thats not how the capacitance works which skips the whole oxidization thing
[17:12] <christo_m> methuzla: if you read the post, it mentions the drawbacks with these types of moisture sensors

[17:19] <gordonDrogon> it's a tricky thing to get right though - long wires trailing over a garden has it's own issues, powering Pi's in a garden is another issue - getting data back wirelessly from autonomous sensors another issue, etc.
[17:19] <methuzla> ESP8266
[17:19] <christo_m> gordonDrogon: yes the wiring bugs me

[17:20] * Sisco (Sisco@unaffiliated/sisco) has joined #raspberrypi
[17:21] <Bilby> If it was a greenhouse or other enclosed environment i’d say wires might be the best solution, maybe with a distribution network of some sort
[17:21] <mgottschlag> the proper way probably would be to build something from a low-power microcontroller running off a coin cell
[17:21] <mgottschlag> (if wiring or power are problematic)
[17:21] <Bilby> christo_m how many plants are you looking to monitor?
[17:21] <christo_m> 4
[17:21] <gordonDrogon> things like the spe8266 make it easier, personally I'd have an autonomous Atmega solution - each one sleeping, waking up once an hour, sensing a few sensors in close proximity then pinging off a message wirelessly... but that's mostly because I'm more familiar with ATmegas.
[17:21] <mgottschlag> and then use a microcontroller like e.g. the cc1310, or maybe even nrf24le1, or something like AVR + NRF24L01
[17:21] <gordonDrogon> an atmega will run for months and months on a coule of AA's.
[17:22] <Bilby> the 433mhz transmitters would work with an atmega
[17:22] <Bilby> not sure how you’d avoid collissions
[17:22] <Bilby> how far away are the plants?

[17:22] <gordonDrogon> Bilby, don't matter. you just ping every 10 +/- random minutes - if no ping recieved for an hour, then whinge ...
[17:23] <mgottschlag> I'd expect multiple years with atmegas actually, with proper power management, they support sub-microampere sleep iirc
[17:23] <Bilby> yeah true
[17:23] <mgottschlag> (when running from AA, probably the battery self-discharge rate might be the bigger problem)
[17:23] <gordonDrogon> mgottschlag, it'll depend more on the radio than anything else, I reckon.
[17:23] <christo_m> Bilby: they're pretty close
[17:23] <christo_m> im not sure i wanna mess around with wireless and batteries and what not
[17:24] <gordonDrogon> christo_m, stick to the Pi for Plan A then - once its going, then you can work on Plan B ...
[17:24] <Bilby> ^
[17:24] <christo_m> ya im just going to wire things
[17:24] <Bilby> I’d say just pi and wires yeah
[17:24] <christo_m> but its humid and could get wet
[17:24] <gordonDrogon> premature optimisation being the root of all evil and all that ...
[17:24] <Bilby> hmm

[17:29] <mgottschlag> gordonDrogon: well, a radio which is active once per minute doesn't matter much
[17:29] <Bilby> You can include a dessicant to absorb any initial humidity
[17:29] <gordonDrogon> I did a lot of stuff with outdoor radio equipment some years back...
[17:30] <mgottschlag> or even much larger intervals, plants do not dry out that quickly
[17:30] <mgottschlag> and the rest of the time, the radio just needs to be completely without supply voltage
[17:30] <gordonDrogon> O-ring sealed boxes and cables exiting downwards - but the most important thing was keeping them powered on all the time. turn one off for a few weeks and expect problems when you turn it in again.

[20:01] <brianx> christo_m: how many pF do you expect to get with that lil purple board, or are you using something else?
[20:02] <christo_m> brianx: pF?
[20:02] <christo_m> oh, that
[20:02] <brianx> pico Farads
[20:02] <christo_m> im not sure
[20:03] <brianx> the speed of your transition will vary based on the pF and the size of your resistor.
[20:04] * Jidoor (~Jidoor@unaffiliated/chilley) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:04] <christo_m> In order to be usable the sensor needs to have a resistance that is at least an order of magnitude larger than the discharge resistor in the measuring system, even after being submerged for a significant period of time. I'm planning to use a resistor in the mega-ohm range. The resistance needs to remain above 10 mega-ohm or so. After 12 hours in the glass, the resistance is still above the highest range on my multi-meter. So far so good.
[20:04] <christo_m> looks like that was accounted for
[20:04] <brianx> from your first link today: "I think the capacitance of above design (shown at this web page) is about 25-100pF", way down in the comments.
[20:05] <christo_m> is that bad?
[20:05] <brianx> oh, no. 25pF to 100pF is acceptable. 1pF would be hard.
[20:06] <brianx> i haven't clicked the instructable yet. the steps used impact the curve you'll see.
[20:07] <christo_m> brianx: it looks like someone complained that its possible for the wires to be included in the measurement
[20:07] <christo_m> which throws it off
[20:07] * PabloPhoenix (~Dave@173.192.119.72) has joined #raspberrypi
[20:08] <brianx> yes, the wires will be a fraction of a pF unless they're long. kinda depends on where your timing circuit is.
[20:08] <christo_m> they will probably be kinda long
[20:08] <christo_m> and the timing circuit will be housed with the pi i imagine..
[20:08] <christo_m> i want to keep the probe minimal
[20:09] <brianx> the purple PCB is shaped kinda like a comb with really wide fingers... i would think the pF would be higher if the fingers were thinner and there were more of them. higher is a good thing here because it makes up for a bit of moisture getting in and for long wires having their own capacitance.

[20:14] <brianx> i doubt shielding is needed, but it probably won't hurt.
[20:15] <brianx> as long as it stays dry, the extra capacitance of the shield will be a constant.

[20:18] <brianx> without knowing the pF of the sensor, it's hard to say. at 25pF, your cable could be larger than the sensor but that alone isn't a problem as long as the change in pF at the sensor is large.
[20:18] <pksato> and use a frequency counter (digital) or frequency to voltage converter (analog).
[20:18] <christo_m> ill probably want the digital solution
[20:18] <christo_m> i dont think the pi can handle analog
[20:18] <christo_m> and i dont want to bolt in an arduino unless i absolutely have to
[20:18] <pksato> RPi can not do both.
[20:18] <brianx> a voltage converter won't like the long wires, there is voltage drop over long wires.
[20:18] <christo_m> right so frequency counter is correct.
[20:18] <pksato> pic or avr easy measure frequency.
[20:19] <brianx> the pi has no internal ADC.
[20:19] <christo_m> and rpi should be able to do this
[20:19] <brianx> agreed, the pi CAN do this.
[20:19] <christo_m> ok
[20:19] <brianx> the issue is not if it can, but how hard it will be....
[20:19] <brianx> the pi is incredibly capable. :-)

[20:29] <christo_m> in the meantime ill be wiring up the DHT22 which looks like a 2 second process.
[20:29] <christo_m> and probably doing a lot of plumbing for the API etc
[20:30] <brianx> yeah, the dht22 looks like it's simple. i assume you'll use gordon's gpio lib and that it'll load the kernel driver if it's not already loaded.
[20:30] <christo_m> uhh, what
[20:31] <christo_m> i was going to use adafruit DHT lib

[20:31] <christo_m> im a nub
[20:31] <brianx> oh, no use adafruit. that's fine. just have to pick one i2c solution and not let several step on each other.

[20:56] <christo_m> oh for the pcb capacitance thing?
[20:56] <christo_m> ya maybe ill buy some more dht sensors then..
[20:57] <christo_m> ill just try 1 for now, trying to keep costs minimal
[20:57] <brianx> no, the one point is for the dht.
[20:58] <brianx> you're going to have to test dry and saturated soil and probably just have to assume it's linear between.

[21:00] <christo_m> i was just going to compare it with some other therom units
[21:01] <brianx> christo_m: you said accurate, the salts calibration is your best bet for accuracy. that and using 3 sensors to monitor each other.

[21:03] <brianx> that article doesn't mention 3 sensors, but that blogger talks about failure in one of their other blogs.

[21:11] <brianx> RoyK: then there will be a short term spike. no biggie.
[21:11] <RoyK> or a munin plugin
[21:11] <RoyK> I'd use munin for that
[21:12] <RoyK> no need to reinvent the wheel
[21:13] <RoyK> (not all the time, that is)
[21:13] <brianx> might throw something like munin at the database, sure. i want the main web gui to be custom to me and my wants.
[21:13] <RoyK> munin just uses rrd files
[21:14] <RoyK> but it's a nice framework for collecting data
[21:14] <RoyK> graphite is perhaps a bit better - a *wee* bit better :D
[21:14] <RoyK> that is, graphite doesn't collect, but others do
[21:14] <RoyK> but then, you can start off with munin plugins and use those with graphite

[21:16] <RoyK> or just start with graphite
[21:16] <brianx> lol, "MRTG done right" from the wiki.
[21:16] <RoyK> yeah!
[21:16] <brianx> it's been awhile, but MRTG was right for me.

[21:19] <brianx> my isp set up v6 a couple years ago now and i've still not touched it.
[21:20] <RoyK> native or 6rd?
[21:20] <brianx> no clue.
[21:20] <brianx> haven't touched it. :-\

[21:23] * RoyK mutters something about firewalling
[21:23] <brianx> iot devices don't have a firewall.
[21:24] <brianx> so they have to be blocked at the main firewall.
[21:24] <RoyK> well, there are extensions for that, to use a private address space internally
[21:24] <brianx> ahh. that might be my path. haven't touched it yet.
[21:24] <brianx> v4 is familiar.
[21:25] <brianx> v6 for me is a solution looking for a problem.
[21:25] <RoyK> about time to test it, I guess - the address space for ipv4 is empty in nothern america
[21:25] <RoyK> and asia
[21:25] <RoyK> soon in europe
[21:25] <RoyK> only africa has some large blocks left
[21:26] <brianx> there are way too many devices with a public IP that don't need them still.

[21:29] <brianx> seems like a waste of a limited resource.
[21:29] <RoyK> not at all
[21:29] <RoyK> it's the other way around
[21:30] <RoyK> when people hide behind a NAT something, they take patching easy
[21:30] <RoyK> it's not really a problem, like, to patch regularly
[21:30] <brianx> not suggesting you don't patch.
[21:30] <brianx> patching is good.
[21:30] <RoyK> and then someone plugs an usb thing into a machine or brings a laptop back from home and *boom*
[21:31] <RoyK> brianx: just saying it works
[21:31] <brianx> as does nat.
[21:31] <RoyK> brianx: most universities in norway do it that way
[21:31] <RoyK> nat doesn't really help any more than a local firewall
[21:32] <brianx> yes, i know universities do. that's why my wife has a public ip on her laptop. a waste of a resource.
[21:32] <RoyK> and a modern pc (even a raspberry pi or even smaller things) can do firewalling easily
[21:32] <RoyK> hrmf
[21:32] <RoyK> please
[21:32] <RoyK> the point is that we need ipv6, ok?

[21:33] <brianx> i see the point.
[21:33] <RoyK> it's about time to learn it
[21:33] <brianx> and for people who want every device to have a public ip, that's fine.
[21:33] <RoyK> with ipv6, most things will have a public ip
[21:33] <brianx> but putting a public v4 on a laptop isn't useful for most people.
[21:33] <RoyK> as with ipv4 in the old days

[21:35] * speeddragon (~speeddrag@193.137.28.200) Quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)
[21:35] <RoyK> some protocols need to use application level handover of network level addresses, which fucks up NAT perfectly well (or fucks up the protocol over NAT)

[21:35] <RoyK> ever tried to make SIP work over NAT?
[21:35] <brianx> i have.
[21:35] <RoyK> sometimes it works
[21:35] <brianx> no troubles at all.
[21:35] <RoyK> but only sometimes
[21:35] <RoyK> suddenly a port changes and boom
[21:36] <RoyK> NAT is a way to avoid lack of addresses
[21:36] <RoyK> ok?
[21:36] <brianx> it is.
[21:36] <RoyK> security isn't the reason it was invented
[21:36] <brianx> that's correct.
[21:36] <RoyK> so better go back to security the way it should be
[21:36] <RoyK> and don't use NAT

[22:26] <brianx> christo_m: you've already ordered the boards... the truth will come when you have one and measure it.
[22:26] <LazyAngel> ledil: and other wifi devices works well?
[22:26] <ledil> yes
[22:26] <brianx> if it's 25pF when dry and 100pF when wet, that's a whole lot easier to detect.

[22:27] <ledil> my notebook results 50mbit/10mbit
[22:27] <christo_m> does that imply determining moisture is an issue, or just getting faster updates?

[22:29] <brianx> christo_m: if the capacitance is very small and varies by a tiny amount, then you'll get the best results by measuring frequency locally. or at least generating a square wave locally to transmit digitally.
[22:29] <christo_m> locally meaning onboard the PCB
[22:29] <christo_m> that probably isnt an option given the environment it'll be in

[22:31] <brianx> lol christo_m

[22:32] <brianx> you were talking to others earlier about potting. i just assumed. i saw good recommendations.
[22:32] <christo_m> but yes, i just wasnt sure if epoxy is a) dangerous (which people have said a silicon one once dried is inert) and b) if it affects the capacitance measurement

[22:38] <christo_m> brianx: well, this is me prototyping
[22:39] <brianx> yeah, so... for a product you really should do the capacitance to frequency bit locally.

[22:40] <brianx> yeah, AA and wifi are not exactly compatible.
[22:41] <brianx> AA and nrf24l01+ are somewhat compatible if you limit read rates.
[22:42] <christo_m> i dunno if id use wifi
[22:42] <christo_m> theres gotta be something more low power
[22:42] <christo_m> bluetooth maybe? i havent looked into it
[22:42] <christo_m> because its over my head and i just want to get something together, even if its cobbled wires etc
[22:42] <brianx> you're in for a big headache getting power levels down to AA battery levels.
[22:42] <christo_m> brianx: then im not sure how id power those things
[22:42] <brianx> power over the signal line probably.

[22:43] <christo_m> ??
[22:43] <brianx> 2 wires using a 1-wire like protocol.
[22:43] <christo_m> so its still wired.
[22:43] <brianx> "1-wire" being a brand name for a system that does power and data over a single pair of wires.
[22:43] <christo_m> ya no i get it
[22:43] <Bilby> 433mhz serial
[22:44] <Bilby> easy cheesy lemon squeezy
[22:44] <christo_m> its just more wires in a grow operation is generally bad
[22:44] <christo_m> just more things to worry about
[22:44] <brianx> Bilby: yeah, those are simple and not too bad for power.
[22:44] <christo_m> Bilby: where do i read
[22:44] <christo_m> http://www.instructables.com/id/Wireless-communication-Arduino-RF/ this i guess
[22:45] <Bilby> This is probably most accessible - https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10534
[22:45] <Bilby> the nice thing is since it’s low-level and transmit-only there isn’t a lot of extra programming involved

[22:46] <christo_m> i also dont need constant communication so
[22:46] <Bilby> current consumption is 8mA
[22:47] <mgottschlag> christo_m: you can add a PMOSFET to completely switch the RF module off while you do not need it
[22:47] <brianx> christo_m: wifi like the esp8266, probably not without a rather large collector. 488mhz or nrfl01+, probably.
[22:47] <mgottschlag> and the arduino just has an AVR chip, that one can be run much lower than 1mA
[22:47] <LazyAngel> RoyK: only seen an article in swedish that says it will be out in february/march. No details
[22:48] <mgottschlag> and the ESP8266 consumes lots of current :)
[22:48] <Bilby> something like this would be a little more expensive to implement but would give you ‘listen’ capabilities so they could act as repeaters or wait for other traffic to end to avoid interruption - https://www.futurlec.com/Radio-2400MHZ.shtml
[22:49] <christo_m> Bilby: oh i didnt realize this
[22:49] <christo_m> if multiple transponders communicate at once
[22:49] <christo_m> it obfuscates the channel?
[22:49] <christo_m> makes sense.
[22:50] <christo_m> ya this is getting too complicated.. ill just use the wired thing
[22:50] <christo_m> if it proves to be difficult to calculate the capacitance ill have to look into onboard solutions, but even then ill still keep it wired for now
[22:50] <Bilby> yep. the cheapest way to get around it is to set them to go at different times and wait for random variation, you might lose a packet here and there but not too bad
[22:50] <christo_m> Bilby: ya thats what i figured
[22:51] <brianx> that rmf70 looks like a copy of the nrf24l01+
[22:51] <Bilby> not sure if it’s a copy or just a simliar interface design to make re-engineering applications easier
[22:52] <Bilby> they have an 868mhz transceiver module that looks handy too
[22:53] <Bilby> an APRS-like library with repeater functions would be super handy for large scale - drop a few of them out in the field with battery packs and solar cells and just mesh the thing
[22:53] <brianx> the nrf clones are cheap. not sure i'd bother with a company that uses a similar interface that is slightly different.
[22:53] <Bilby> of course you could do it with an ESP8266 too, ease of implementing as a tradeoff for the higher current consumption

[22:54] <christo_m> i just hate batteries
[22:54] <Bilby> not without cooking anything between the power emitter and your devices ;)
[22:55] <brianx> scavenged power is really small. it's possible but not easy.
[22:55] <christo_m> Bilby: oh true
[22:55] <christo_m> have you guys messed with lithium ion batteries hooked up to solar panels or something?
[22:56] <brianx> if you can't do wires, use the smallest power radio you can and given that you have tons of light, seriously consider solar cells.
[22:56] <christo_m> brianx: i can do wires
[22:56] <christo_m> but like you said it makes measuring the moisture harder
[22:56] <christo_m> and thats all this is doing.. it makes me wonder if i start making it its own isolated unit.. i should pack more features
[22:56] <christo_m> like lux sensor , maybe pH probe
[22:56] <brianx> making this commercial reliability is the harder.
[22:56] * TheSin (~TheSin@gateway.bluefalls.ca) Quit (Quit: Client exiting)
[22:56] <christo_m> though pH in the soil is pretty bad way of doing it, you should be checking the actual solution.
[22:57] <Bilby> yep, packaging will be the big pain
[22:57] <christo_m> bah, i wont worry about it now
[22:57] <christo_m> otherwise ill get discouraged and i wont attempt anything :(
[22:57] <brianx> you can probably do this on a one-off scale with wires and the sensor you have on the way with long wires to the sensor.
[22:58] <Bilby> once you find a transceiver unit that is licensed to work in your area and get it working properly, you’d want to contract a company to make boards for you. Box it in a fitted case with as much integration as possible
[22:58] <Bilby> always start with the basics
[22:58] <Bilby> hence “hello world"
[22:58] <brianx> ^^^ yep.
[22:58] <christo_m> ya thats what im doing
[22:59] <christo_m> too much overengineering right now
[22:59] <christo_m> neckbearding
[22:59] <Bilby> Usually for me step 1 is “i want to do this thing”
[22:59] <brianx> so test the boards without coating and with short wires. get an LCR meter if you don't have one.
[22:59] <Bilby> step 2 is “okay, now what do i want it to do” followed by realizing that it’s a HUGE amount of work
[22:59] <Bilby> step 3-5000 is winding that back to “lets see if we can get this LED to blink” and building from there

[23:02] <Bilby> *thing
[23:03] <brianx> Bilby: took me a couple days too. turned out i had my level shift divider resistors backwards.
[23:03] <Bilby> that way when something inevitibly goes boots-up you can take it back apart and figure out what went wrong
[23:03] <Bilby> hah! curses. did you let the smoke out?
[23:03] <brianx> nope, i had it so low that the voltage wasn't reliably being received by the esp.

[23:04] <brianx> after another few hours, i was programming it in the arduino ide and i've not looked back.
[23:06] <Bilby> ah, nice
[23:06] <Bilby> I had the hardest time with the AT commands, flashed CodeLUA and had much more luck
[23:06] <Bilby> the python port has me excited, too
[23:07] <brianx> AT worked for me right off once i got the level shift right. though i just connected and never played with sending data.
[23:08] <Bilby> I had no problems connecting to an AP and getting an IP address with AT commands, but connecting to a web page and requesting information seemed impossible
[23:08] <brianx> ahh, i never tried that.
[23:08] <Bilby> I was probably doing something simple incorrectly but lua was easy enough to do what i needed

[23:44] <LazyAngel> let me check
[23:45] <LazyAngel> yes, it has switched to dhcpcd and uses /etc/network/interfaces
[23:46] <GreeningGalaxy> okay, so what should that look like?
[23:46] <LazyAngel> by doing 'sudo dhcpcd wlan0' you manually ask for an ip address for that interface. But it will not update to a new ip when that is needed and will not be persistent between boots
[23:46] <GreeningGalaxy> I've tried both `iface wlan0 inet dhcp` and `iface wlan0 inet manual` and neither seems to be any different than the other
[23:47] <LazyAngel> GreeningGalaxy: i will have to google it, but did you do a restart of the service in between the changes?

[23:54] <GreeningGalaxy> so what does wicd-curses even do when it says 'obtaining ip address' if not dhcpcd?
[23:55] <LazyAngel> change the /etc/network/interfaces
[23:55] <LazyAngel> auto wlan0
[23:55] <LazyAngel> allow-hotplug wlan 0
[23:55] <LazyAngel> iface wlan0 inet dhcp
[23:55] <LazyAngel> *allow-hotplug wlan0
[23:56] <LazyAngel> save it, and run /etc/init.d/networking restart
[23:56] <GreeningGalaxy> it already looks exactly like that, with one extra line about wpa_supplicant
[23:56] <LazyAngel> so no iface wlan0 inet manual?
[23:57] <GreeningGalaxy> nope, not at the moment
[23:57] <LazyAngel> well, I'm no expert on dhcp
[23:57] * D-Boy (~D-Boy@unaffiliated/cain) Quit (Excess Flood)
[23:57] <LazyAngel> but the reason it is not persistent is because you run the command once.
[23:58] <LazyAngel> you will have to get it into a config file. either into the dhcpcd or networking
[23:58] <LazyAngel> and restart the service
[23:58] <LazyAngel> looks like you have two options
[23:58] <LazyAngel> good luck with google :)
[23:58] * mgottschlag (~quassel@reactos/tester/phoenix64) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[23:58] <LazyAngel> or try a linux channel?
