00:03 Speed_Laptop joined #thegeekgroup
00:03 Speed_Laptop hi
00:05 Speed_Laptop hi Ponko92
00:05 Ponko92 hey speed_laptop
00:07 injekton Cprossu: You around?
00:11 Cprossu_Laptop yeah
00:11 Cprossu_Laptop what's up, injekton?
00:12 injekton Do you know if it is possible to burn SGI IRIX CDs from a normal PC that are readable to an SGI system with no OS?
00:12 Cprossu_Laptop it should be
00:12 injekton I also need a bootable external SCSI CD-ROM for it
00:13 Cprossu_Laptop the scsi cdrom is bootable iirc
00:13 Cprossu_Laptop injekton is this for the octane?
00:13 injekton Yes
00:14 Cprossu_Laptop do you have anything that goes from the ultrascsi to 50 pin?
00:14 Cprossu_Laptop I think it's ultra scsi right?
00:14 injekton I don't have anything SCSI unless you count the SCA SCSI drives I have
00:14 Cprossu_Laptop do you have any old mac gear?
00:15 injekton No
00:15 Cprossu_Laptop damn
00:15 Cprossu_Laptop the mac external scsi cdrom would be perfect for this
00:15 Cprossu_Laptop and old mac's period?
00:16 Cprossu_Laptop because you may have a scsi cdrom around and not even know it
00:16 Cprossu_Laptop some ibm servers also have scsi cdrom
00:17 injekton The Dell Poweredge I have died which has a SCSI CD-RW but that is dead
00:17 Cprossu_Laptop won't read cd's?
00:17 Cprossu_Laptop how did the server die?
00:18 injekton It never went past the SCSI controller screen
00:18 Cprossu_Laptop not just a misconfig on the jumpers?
00:18 Cprossu_Laptop like a conflicting scsi-id?
00:18 injekton I tried everything
00:19 injekton But I'll look into that later
00:19 Cprossu_Laptop well still we're down to 50pin to the octane's external scsi connector
00:19 injekton Anyway I have the base IRIX 6.5 install all I need now is 6.5.30
00:20 Cprossu_Laptop uw-scsi
00:21 injekton Cprossu_Laptop: I have DINA
00:21 injekton Which I have no fucking clue how to netboot it
00:23 injekton Which would allow me to avoid an external CD drive to begin with
00:23 Cprossu_Laptop http://www.mcpb.com/assets/gifs.color/scsi.adp.in/adp.mhd68.50t.v5.gif
00:23 Cprossu_Laptop it's a pain in the ass to netboot any machine
00:23 Cprossu_Laptop much less an SGI
00:24 injekton Well apparently DINA makes it easy
00:24 BotSteve In the last hour, there have been 1 new posts on the Geek Group forums.  New posts made by: DruidicRifleman on Power Wheels Robot
00:26 injekton What I really want is a dual CPU module
00:26 NeWtoz is TGG's echolink working yet?
00:26 NeWtoz or is this still in dev
00:27 Cprossu_Laptop I think it's still in cardboard
00:27 chunks[away] left #thegeekgroup
00:27 injekton Is it even still worth trying to resurrect or should I just send it off to pasture
00:28 Cprossu_Laptop it's fun, you should resurect it
00:28 Cprossu_Laptop just not with a netboot
00:28 injekton I've been being to get this working for the last 5 years I've owned it
00:29 injekton :\
00:29 Cprossu_Laptop you've been ..being to?
00:29 Cprossu_Laptop what?!
00:29 * NeWtoz guesses trying
00:29 injekton Cprossu_Laptop: First of all I was put off by the price to even get IRIX media
00:29 Cprossu_Laptop well trying doesn't count if you never have the right parts to make it work
00:30 Cprossu_Laptop an external scsi drive and proper cable are out there, being given away somewhere
00:30 injekton SGI told me IRIX was 1500 just for the disks
00:31 Cprossu_Laptop never ask SGI
00:31 Cprossu_Laptop lol
00:31 Cprossu_Laptop ask google and the SGI users groups
00:31 Cprossu_Laptop 5 years ago escpecially they'd have been prolific
00:31 Cprossu_Laptop now they're a dying breed =(
00:31 injekton Mine has the Cherokee PSU
00:32 chunks joined #thegeekgroup
00:32 injekton So I don't have to worry about the Lucent one failing
00:32 Cprossu_Laptop I thought alot of sgi's had cherokee psu's
00:33 KB3NZQ does any  one know why the stream is down?
00:33 Cprossu_Laptop no one here does
00:33 injekton Cprossu: In the Octane/Octane 2 black handle = lucent metal handle = Cherokee
00:33 Cprossu_Laptop egrsteve won't get there for some time
00:34 Cprossu_Laptop ahh
00:34 Cprossu_Laptop then again my indigo had a nidec...I think..
00:34 injekton I want a PCI card cage for it but meh
00:34 tggmc1 herllo
00:34 Cprossu_Laptop it's been way too long for me to remember
00:34 Cprossu_Laptop hey tggmc1 is that you steve?
00:34 tggmc1 \yes it is
00:34 tggmc1 is the stream still down?
00:34 injekton My SGI came from Reputable Systems before they closed their doors
00:34 Cprossu_Laptop yep. what blew up?
00:35 tggmc1 idk, looks online here
00:35 KB3NZQ off line
00:35 Cprossu_Laptop hrmmm restart of the software might be in order
00:35 tggmc1 thats what I'm thinking
00:35 Cprossu_Laptop take stream down and pull it back up at least
00:35 Cprossu_Laptop the pc didn't freeze did it?
00:35 tggmc1 PC seems fine
00:36 Cprossu_Laptop now we're up
00:36 KB3NZQ bingo
00:36 KB3NZQ got a feed from HV lab
00:36 KB3NZQ now outside
00:36 tggmc1 adn you see cars moving?
00:36 KB3NZQ yep
00:36 Cprossu_Laptop seems to be some diagnal banding now
00:37 Cprossu_Laptop ECHO
00:37 KB3NZQ loud and clear
00:37 Cprossu_Laptop lol I have multiple streams open
00:37 Cprossu_Laptop I saw the banding in the hvlab shot
00:37 injekton One of the things I like about IRIX is 4Dwm >_<
00:37 Cprossu_Laptop do we still have radio demodding (checks*
00:38 Cprossu_Laptop yep
00:39 Cprossu_Laptop tggmc1: ready to troubleshoot the radio demodding?
00:40 tggmc1 eating dinner then it's demod fun
00:42 Cprossu_Laptop fun.
00:44 injekton Hmm consulting Nekochan's forums
00:48 tggmc1 time to head down to HVL and look at this demod, stream going quiet
00:49 Cprossu_Laptop kk
00:50 injekton To see if someone has any bootable external drives
00:50 Cprossu_Laptop tggmc1: I'm going to go on my desktop and throw an equalizer on so I can hear it better
00:50 Cprossu_Laptop injekton: do you have any electronic recyclers in your area?
00:50 injekton Yes
00:51 injekton I don't know if they do any sales to the general public
00:51 Cprossu_Laptop call up and ask
00:51 Cprossu_Laptop mention that you are interested in vintage computer equipment
00:51 Cprossu_Laptop but don't say what
00:52 Cprossu_Laptop if they have any old commodores or mainframes down there when you go
00:52 Cprossu_Laptop ooh and aaaahhh over them
00:52 Cprossu_Laptop ask the price possibly
00:52 Cprossu_Laptop when they come up with ~100-1000$ say maybe next time
00:53 Cprossu_Laptop and keep looking around the piles of junk until you find what you actually want
00:53 Cprossu_Laptop grab a few things that look older too
00:53 Cprossu_Laptop offer him a price, when he says no put a few of the things back
00:53 Cprossu_Laptop and offer the same price
00:53 Cprossu_Laptop that's how you'll get it for the price you want.
00:54 Cprossu if you just go into it calling places "X is what I want, do you have any?" expect 3 digit responses
00:55 injekton I know how the used UNIX equipment market works
00:55 Cprossu I think that's all the advice I can give you, injekton
00:55 Cprossu yay phono buzz
00:55 injekton If they have any mainframes there is a good chance of me trying to shoe horn one into the car
00:55 Cprossu and beeping too
00:55 wannabe1987 left #thegeekgroup
00:56 Cprossu and 60hz too
00:57 injekton mmmm the 60hz hum
00:57 Cprossu but yeah the main thing is unless you get out there you don't know
00:58 Cprossu a recycler would rather sell something for more money than he could scrap out of it
00:58 Druidic_Rifleman YAY i got my A5 trigger fixed...
00:58 Druidic_Rifleman Now to figure out what was wrong with it
01:00 injekton UNIX recyclers make me want to pull my hair out every time I browse their sites
01:00 Cprossu Graph of Druidic_Rifleman's comments guns->|.<-not guns
01:00 tggmc1 so we still have demod

01:01 tggmc1 time to figure out why
01:01 Cprossu I mean I hear the background
01:01 Cprossu is the disfunctional hvac powered on, tggmc1?
01:01 Druidic_Rifleman For some reasion my trigger wasn't allowing the sear to reset i pop it out swap it for a differant 1... it worked
01:02 Cprossu echo
01:03 Cprossu yay fixed that at least

01:09 Sgt_Lemming old SGI machines aren't all that expensive on ebay.
01:09 Cprossu also tggmc1 can you give us another camera since hv is now black? =)

01:22 Cprossu no Druidic_Rifleman it never works that way
01:22 Cprossu I know this lol
01:22 Cprossu no one ever turns it off
01:22 Druidic_Rifleman and the fed is on random and there is stuff going on the audio never matches up with the video
01:22 Cprossu a nice unobtrusive blinkenlight would be better
01:22 Druidic_Rifleman Soooo something sounds really cool
01:22 Druidic_Rifleman and we get a good view of the Used USPS mail van...

01:27 Cprossu interestingly enough
01:27 Cprossu the clearcom manuals from that year

01:28 Cprossu I saw the lm741 used in 3 different units but couldn't place them because the schematics were unlabeled
01:28 Cprossu ahhh hell random commercial, tggmc1 so I can't hear you
01:28 BatSteve Ponko92: ooh, are we soundboarding?

01:30 BatSteve How do cultures in which "bloody" is used as profanity describe when they're actually covered in blood?
01:30 Ponko92 not really its just a saying we use

01:58 Cprossu rofl
02:00 * Cprossu is going to catch up on 1years worth of topgear he missed
02:01 injektion lol
02:02 Cprossu first though sadly I have to figure out the last episode I watched
02:02 Cprossu tggmc1 fly in master control?
02:03 Cprossu also "Can I hear myself" would be a good reocurring theme in a horror movie
02:03 Cprossu one buzzed a mic
02:03 Cprossu a bit ago
02:04 Cprossu kind of neat
02:10 injektion Hmmm
02:10 injektion I wish to change the colour of the Octane's lightbar
02:12 Cprossu get it working on irix first =D
02:12 injektion The first thing I do with any new OS is trash it first by learning about it then re-installing
02:13 Cprossu what color is it injektion? one of the newer white LED's might look nice
02:13 injektion It's a green LED
02:13 Cprossu yeah tggmc1?
02:13 Cprossu figures
02:14 Cprossu that's nice that it's not shored inside the cord
02:14 injektion I had a choice of colours. Too bad I didn't get the purple ones
02:14 Cprossu *shorted
02:14 Cprossu purple was octane2 right?
02:14 Cprossu actually
02:14 Cprossu there might be a schematic for that rack unit

02:21 Ponko92 brb
02:21 injektion DINA looks easy http://dina.harrydebug.com/
02:21 Cprossu have fun with that xD
02:21 Ponko92 thanks
02:22 Cprossu let me know any other clearcomm data you need, it's freaking easy to find :)
02:23 BatSteve BotSteve: should I meddle about with your internal organs?
02:23 BotSteve I don't think so
02:23 BatSteve fair enough.  Time for video games!
02:24 Cprossu BotSteve: Should you take in any hobos for testing?
02:24 BotSteve Reply hazy, try again later
02:24 BotSteve In the last hour, there have been 1 new posts on the Geek Group forums.  New posts made by: SitkaGrown on Tesla Coil Advice
02:24 Cprossu BatSteve: good deal, we're safe tonight
02:25 BatSteve yep, nothing could possibly go wrong
02:25 BatSteve unrelated, wow, sony got breached again?
02:26 Cprossu actually 2 times
02:26 Cprossu if not 3
02:26 Cprossu sony said they are at least $130 million in the dumper
02:26 BatSteve As of an hour ago?
02:26 Cprossu yes
02:26 BatSteve wooow
02:27 Cprossu btw unrelated it rained on fukushima
02:27 Cprossu and made things worse
02:27 Cprossu they did manage to cool down the spent fuel pool of reactor 2 though
02:27 BatSteve How'd the rain make it worse?
02:28 BatSteve Weigh down the particulate dust or something?
02:28 Cprossu because it caused the contaminated water levels in the basements to ruse
02:28 Cprossu ^
02:28 Cprossu *rise
02:28 BatSteve oh, that makes sense
02:28 Cprossu 8CM up on the worst pit
02:28 Cprossu which isn't good
02:29 Cprossu considering the water they dump into the reactors ends up there or worse
02:29 Cprossu the bad thing that can happen is the pits overflow into the ocean
02:29 Cprossu causing more damage
02:33 Sgt_Lemming and pumping them out is not an easy thing
02:34 * Druidic_Rifleman has the best pizza in all of canada
02:34 Cprossu not when you don't have anything to pump it into
02:34 Cprossu and I don't think pumping it into a barge is a good idea either
02:34 Cprossu but that's what they are going to do
02:34 Druidic_Rifleman well second best moms is actually better...
02:35 tggmc1 time to headf home, I think I will print that schematic off when I get home
02:35 Cprossu I'm glad we've got the channel log too
02:37 tggmc1 looking at that schematic I could build my own clear com compatable units
02:37 Cprossu a few days from the lab I bet you can do it
02:38 tggmc1 if I used all smd devices it couly be tiny
02:38 Cprossu and there's enough junk from 1984 you could likely use exact parts
02:38 Cprossu lol nice
02:38 Cprossu actually you could build a rack unit with the power supply built in
02:38 tggmc1 the connectoprs would be the biggest things on it
02:38 tggmc1 the power supply I bought (24v DC) could fit in a 1 RU unit
02:39 Cprossu tggmc1: so you could make it fit in a tiny clip on case couldn't you?
02:39 tggmc1 I could
02:39 tggmc1 although I couldn't beat PI for tiny
02:40 tggmc1 http://www.beltpack.com/bp_15.html
02:40 tggmc1 those are tiny
02:40 Cprossu under 5oz too
02:41 tggmc1 and have power for an electrit copndencer mic
02:41 Cprossu how much do those run?
02:42 Cprossu also are there any nice integrated circuits single chip you could use to replace most of that circuitry?
02:43 tggmc1 idk, i doubt it although using double or quad opamps would help
02:43 tggmc1 as thats what the whole thing is built with
02:44 Cprossu technically you could very expensively replicate it in fpga
02:44 Cprossu which would be funny as hell
02:44 tggmc1 i see one site with that mini pack for 230
02:44 tggmc1 sounds high
02:45 Cprossu no kidding
02:45 Cprossu the raw components are much cheaper

02:46 tggmc1 I could probably build one for under 30 including connectors, excluding PCB
02:47 Cprossu do you think they posted the schematics in the user manual?
02:47 tggmc1 I would rather a cleamcom type system in the lab rather than mumble as there is less to fail
02:47 Cprossu (looks)
02:47 tggmc1 doubt it
02:48 Cprossu nope

02:50 tggmc1 ya thats it
02:50 Cprossu and board pcb too
02:50 tggmc1 through hole not SMD, maybe it needs an update
02:51 Cprossu he did a little power supply
02:51 Cprossu http://www.rcrowley.com/comclone/PowerSupl.htm
02:51 Cprossu really not much to it rofl
02:51 Cprossu you weren't kidding
02:52 tggmc1 no there isn't a regulated supply and a resistor
02:52 tggmc1 I put the resistor in the XLR connector
02:52 tggmc1 wired the cable right to the 24v PSU
02:53 tggmc1 I have a 1.5A supply so I should be able to power 10-20 packs
02:53 tggmc1 without too much trouble
02:53 tggmc1 if the 50-100 ma is accurate
02:53 tggmc1 ok, leaving now, really

02:55 Sgt_Lemming sigh
02:55 Cprossu yeah Ponko92
02:55 Sgt_Lemming tried to be sneaky and plug in a SATA drive without powering down

03:04 Sgt_Lemming Cprossu, not sure what it was
03:04 Cprossu congrats on shorting the 12volt to ground
03:04 Cprossu is my guess
03:04 Sgt_Lemming not possible with a sata connector
03:04 Hackbat joined #thegeekgroup
03:04 Cprossu yeah it is
03:05 Sgt_Lemming and it plugged in fine and then powered down once the drive span up
03:05 Cprossu oooh
03:05 Cprossu that's different then
03:05 Sgt_Lemming without mangling the connector it's not possible
03:05 Cprossu no it is
03:05 Cprossu I've done it
03:05 Cprossu usually when trying to plug it in at a funny angle
03:05 Cprossu but it is possible.
03:05 Sgt_Lemming then you must be special, cause the connector is designed to prevent that
03:06 Cprossu it only works when it goes on straight

03:07 Cprossu ^sata notebook optical drives
03:08 Sgt_Lemming yup
03:08 Sgt_Lemming of which I have one right here
03:08 Cprossu so why qualify 2.5"

03:17 Cprossu what kinda power supply you using on that?
03:17 Sgt_Lemming Silverstone ST650w, it's provided with the case
03:17 Sgt_Lemming but it's a full ATX psu
03:17 Cprossu yeah I thought it was full atx on those
03:18 Cprossu silverstone has come a long way in case design
03:18 Sgt_Lemming yup
03:18 Sgt_Lemming this one rocks
03:18 Cprossu their early stuff was overpriced and lacking in any ability to keep cool by design
03:19 Cprossu and they liked packing things full of 60mm fans o_o
03:21 Cprossu when building an HTPC that resides in the same space as the TV 60mm fans are a bad choice
03:21 Cprossu same is true if you want them lasting more than 7 months
03:22 Cprossu having used one, Sgt_Lemming: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835220032
03:22 Cprossu ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
03:22 Cprossu I wouldn't trust it to cool a 45w 2ghz c2d
03:23 Sgt_Lemming I would, I've used one
03:23 Sgt_Lemming not with the 60mm fans though
03:23 Cprossu I used it in one of their htpc cases
03:23 Cprossu with the 60mm fan holes
03:23 Cprossu and a Athlon64 X2.... I think BE2300...
03:24 Cprossu the stock cooler worked better

03:29 Cprossu I actually attached a cooler master aero7 blower to it at one point trying to get the temps down

03:47 Cprossu I finally just went looking for the entire listing of pdf's
03:48 egrsteve easy to find
03:48 Cprossu but yeah the comclone asctually looks more complicated than the rs100a
03:49 egrsteve a little bit but very close, it allows use of eletric condencers
03:49 * wannabe1987 wants to kill her allergies kthxbai
03:49 Cprossu wow there's only 3 ic's in that damn thing?
03:49 egrsteve calls out some of the same transistors
03:49 egrsteve like i said it would be easy to build
03:50 Cprossu I wonder how many of those resistors and/or capacitors are extranious
03:50 egrsteve idk
03:50 egrsteve http://www.rcrowley.com/ComClone/PartsList.htm
03:50 egrsteve $20 for comclone parts
03:51 egrsteve as of 2 years ago
03:51 Cprossu with SMD it should be cheaper
03:51 egrsteve resistors are only about .02
03:52 egrsteve so it all in 0603 resistors
03:52 egrsteve and small caps
03:52 Cprossu how many packs do you intend to make?
03:52 Cprossu xD
03:52 egrsteve idk
03:52 Cprossu with smd stuff you could make 20 for pretty damn cheap
03:52 egrsteve I still need to make it in eagle
03:53 egrsteve that you could run pcbs via gold phienox

03:57 Cprossu it's interesting all the little hacks they used to do what they wanted it to

04:00 egrsteve it's quite clever actually
04:00 Cprossu yeah I know
04:00 Cprossu hence 'little hacks'
04:01 egrsteve a good portion is regulation and indicators
04:02 egrsteve I used an OTS switchmode which eliminates the regulation

04:05 Cprossu and I found a portable main station too
04:05 Cprossu interesting stuff
04:06 egrsteve all of these come down to basic opamp design rules
04:06 egrsteve it's amazingly simiple and elegant
04:06 Cprossu yeah it is
04:06 Cprossu are there any good quad op amp drivers that would be suitable for this?
04:06 eadthem left #thegeekgroup
04:07 egrsteve I'm sure there is
04:07 LemLap joined #thegeekgroup
04:07 Cprossu because the fewer chips the better
04:07 egrsteve the comclone uses 2 dual opamps and a single
04:08 egrsteve the single being the micpre
04:08 Cprossu http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/galaxy/datasheets/ic/njm324m.htm
04:08 Cprossu hrmmm
04:09 egrsteve ya lm324, classic opamp, dirt cheap
04:09 Cprossu this is cool lol
04:09 egrsteve pulls to gnd and about 1v bellow supply
04:09 egrsteve *below supply
04:10 Cprossu what a strange operating supply range
04:10 egrsteve not a perticulary great opamp but common like the LM741
04:10 Cprossu operating voltage is listed as +3-+32V lol
04:10 Cprossu good old bipolar
04:11 egrsteve that it is, very versital general perpose opamp
04:11 egrsteve or a single supply with a virtual ground
04:11 egrsteve ref everything off of a voltage divider
04:11 * Cprossu looks at the comclone2 and thinks about how cool it would be to do the design with 2 chips a couple of reistor networks, and some capacitors
04:12 egrsteve problem is getting quad opamps with all the right caracteristics to replace the 2 double ones
04:13 egrsteve as I assume they were chosen for specific characteristics
04:13 Cprossu yeah I see that
04:13 Cprossu all 3 op amps are different
04:14 egrsteve have you noticed the geek level of the IRC is unusualy high tonight
04:14 Cprossu a LF353, a NE5532 and a NE5534
04:15 Cprossu it usually is high (until someone with a name begining with dru starts gunning it up)
04:15 egrsteve it's been basicly us and a bit of bot abuse
04:15 Cprossu the bot abuse does happen but that's mostly me
04:15 * Cprossu pops up datasheets and startes
04:16 westmi left #thegeekgroup
04:16 egrsteve I know 0603 are the lower limit for most peoples SMD skills and they are redily avalible so I think they would be a good size to standardize on

05:59 Cprossu I'm thinking I'll try a mini-din next time I get the chance
05:59 Cprossu does anyone make a mil spec usb connector, like a twist-loc usb?
05:59 Cprossu because that would be awesome
05:59 egrsteve maybe neutrik, they sell an rj-45 in an xlr shell
06:00 egrsteve http://www.neutrik.com/us/en/dataconnectors/204_1047652869/USB_productlist.aspx
06:00 Cprossu certainly is interesting

06:04 Cprossu that's awesome lol
06:04 LinuxH4x0r and they might send you a free one
06:04 egrsteve forgot about molex
06:05 LinuxH4x0r i got an order from them once
06:05 LinuxH4x0r pretty neat stuff
06:05 Cprossu I was thinking molex at the start then
06:05 Cprossu "why would they make THAT"
06:05 Cprossu before doing a search!
06:05 * LemLap facepalms
06:06 Cprossu it happens you know
06:06 LemLap just formatted the drive I just copied all the crap too
06:06 LemLap good thing I copied it and didn't move it
06:06 Cprossu seriously?!
06:06 LemLap cause there's a lot of important data there
06:06 Cprossu lol
06:06 LemLap yeah
06:06 Cprossu *DOH*
06:06 LemLap epic facepalm moment
06:06 LemLap there is a backup on the server as well, but it's a pita copying it all back over the network
06:10 LemLap plugged the old drive back in, copying all the data off it now
06:10 LemLap might have to put this one aside JIC.
06:13 Cprossu OMG
06:13 Cprossu http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/resources/images/1308749/?type=display
06:13 Cprossu I wonder if they tell you how to cook by taking apart a steak
06:14 LinuxH4x0r lol
06:14 LinuxH4x0r i want it!
06:14 Cprossu I do too
06:14 Cprossu but haynes manuals suck so bad for card!

06:23 NeWtoz if only
06:23 NeWtoz I need to wireshark myself someday
06:25 Cprossu you'll be fucking scared
06:25 Cprossu especially if you type in any passwords
06:25 Cprossu and find them in plaintext
06:25 Cprossu when it was supposed to be an encrypted https connection =P
06:25 NeWtoz well, it's more of finding what doesn't go through this vpn
06:26 NeWtoz trying to make sure my work doesn't see anything ;)
06:26 Cprossu that's why I like vnc
06:26 Cprossu xD
06:27 Cprossu although scarrily enough
06:27 Cprossu there's one company out there... network instruments iirc
06:27 Cprossu and they can do something really interesting
06:27 Cprossu catch raw packets and rebuild binaries and anything else from it, even remote desktop instances
06:28 NeWtoz yup
06:28 NeWtoz makes sense
06:28 Cprossu pity they built their system on windows
06:28 NeWtoz heh
06:29 Cprossu I don't care how isolated your specially built network cards are
06:29 Cprossu if it's a windows box you can surely overflow a buffer in it's interface driver =P

06:29 Cprossu lol I was a real party pooper in that conference
06:30 Cprossu I asked a base question and got made fun of
06:30 Cprossu so I brought up "What OS does your device run?"
06:30 Cprossu since they had dodged it in all their pamplets
06:30 Cprossu NeWtoz: want to know how it went?
06:30 Cprossu btw audience of 200
06:31 NeWtoz not too well I'm sure
06:31 Cprossu after he was done shitting bricks
06:31 Cprossu he said "I'm sure this won't be very popular but we are running Windows XP Professional"
06:31 Cprossu so I asked "64 bit?"
06:31 Cprossu he said no.
06:32 Cprossu this is after he was saying how well his system could handle .....potential petabytes of data
06:32 Cprossu and how bulletproof his system was
06:32 Cprossu and why it should be implemented on 'mission critical networks'
06:32 Druidic_Sniper joined #thegeekgroup
06:32 Cprossu in front of a bunch of people who are unix, linux, and OpenVMS gurus
06:33 Cprossu and VMS 5.9 for that matter
06:33 Cprossu needless to say that didn't end up in our network
06:33 Cprossu plus they didn't bring an actual rig to demo
06:33 Cprossu we figured out it was a video early on
06:33 Cprossu but they were playing it like it wasn't
06:34 NeWtoz definitely sounds like a group to avoid
06:34 NeWtoz I wouldn't want someone "faking" something to me
06:35 NeWtoz anyways, back to work time ;(
06:35 NeWtoz :(
06:35 Cprossu :(
06:35 Cprossu what we found out through lots of calling was many others complained that they didn't just run linux

20:17 * KB3NZQ is away: watching youtube for a bit
20:17 SparkyProjects Problem with that idea is that it could get abused, if the channel is locked down to only those that have voice, then all i would need to do is change my nick
20:20 KB3NZQ true

20:31 injekton This should be a big enough hard drive http://goput.it/str/jet.jpg
20:32 Sasha For what?
20:32 injekton The SGI Octane
20:32 Sasha Which is :P?
20:33 injekton http://195.224.149.148/SB/SGI_Octane_1.jpg
20:34 injekton It's that
20:34 Sasha Ah... still doesn't tell me anything until I looked it up on Google :P
20:35 injekton People should know who SGI is :P They created the OpenGL standard
20:36 Sasha Well that I know.
20:37 injekton The Octane is the first computer I bought myself
20:39 Ponko92 what will people do when theres a HUGE car crash at that junction
20:39 Ponko92 or just a an incident
20:39 eadthem joined #thegeekgroup
20:39 injekton It took SGI until 2006 to add SSH to IRIX :/
20:39 Sasha Ah... I do hope that they're DVRing the cams, right?
20:40 Ponko92 other than be really freaked out of course
20:40 eadthem dvring the cams?
20:40 Ponko92 no
20:40 Sasha Yup, incase some shit goes down on the junction
20:41 Ponko92 i meant being scared if there was a crash
20:41 Sasha But they should, then submit the footage to like a TV station in exchange for AV equipment :p
20:41 Ponko92 smart idea
20:42 Ponko92 submit it to chris
20:42 Ponko92 unlikely that it'll work but still
20:43 Sasha Botsteve: tell CaptainBoden to DVR the weather cam incase there is a major accident at the junction, so that you can submit it to a large TV station in exchange for a metric boatload of AV equipment ;)
20:43 BotSteve Sasha: I'll pass that on when CaptainBoden is around.
20:43 mashpriborintorg This red and white van on the parking lot reminds me of some scary films
20:43 Sasha Pedofile?
20:43 mashpriborintorg with killers using vans
20:44 Ponko92 the likeliness for a crash there in that exact place is low
20:45 eadthem so why so many ground rods?
20:45 eadthem faraday cage?
20:46 SparkyProjects The adobe software they use for ustream has the abilty to DVR, but the computer is nothing special at the moment, saving that quality of output to DVR would need a lot of space, they would need to specify how much is saved at a time.
20:46 SparkyProjects They might do it sometime in the future once they get a good computer and extra storage, as they are thinking about 'delayed streaming' for people in different timezones,
20:46 SparkyProjects Currently though, the content isn't really that immportant to save.
20:46 eadthem or just insanely high currents
20:47 Sasha Sparkyprojects what pc do they have? My really old AMD Turion 64 X2 laptop with a Radeon 1200 series gfx card can do both at the same time :p
20:48 SparkyProjects I don't know what PC they have, they can't use a dell with the capture card they have (they tried it a few times), but yeah, could be something like you said
20:48 SparkyProjects might even be single processor
20:48 Sasha Can't they get an EasyCap thingy? It can have 4 inputs and works through USB
20:49 SparkyProjects I don't know what bitrate they are using or if easycap can be used for tgg
20:50 SparkyProjects USB has limits
20:51 Sasha 480mpbs is more than enough for 4 ancient cameras
20:51 eadthem firewire ftw
20:52 injekton ^
20:52 injekton eadthem: I was about to say that
20:52 Sasha Dude, firewire just doesn't work....
20:52 injekton Firewire also doesn't use any CPU unlike USB
20:52 eadthem ya  thats the biggy     dma style transfers
20:52 SparkyProjects They have a decent capture card, so no need to spend out on other devices.
20:53 injekton I need to get a firewire audio device
20:53 SparkyProjects They only need one feed from MC
20:53 Sasha I was thinking of donating them one of the Easycap devices
20:53 Cprossu woot all caught up to top gear
20:53 Sasha The show or something else?
20:54 Cprossu the show
20:54 injekton I knew giving the VM 2 CPUs was a bad idea
20:54 Sasha Cprossu I LOOOVE IT!!
20:55 Cprossu season 17 is the 16th?
20:55 Cprossu or the 12th?
20:55 Sasha Really? Final gear doesn't have any countdowns yet. Which version are you talking about?
20:55 injekton The 12th is not the start date
20:56 Cprossu I'm not talking about 5th gear or final gear =P
20:57 * mashpriborintorg going to bed, one more time
20:57 Cprossu and they did say "see you in june" on the last season 16 episode
20:57 mashpriborintorg bye
20:57 mashpriborintorg left #thegeekgroup
20:58 Sasha Well afaik it will still be the 12th, because mistakes like that just don't happen by accident :P
20:59 masterofmonks http://www.wimp.com/astronautspace/
20:59 Cprossu I stopped watching in the middle of season 14 for some reason I can't sort out so I had a nice queue before I ran out
21:00 Sasha Wait what?
21:01 Cprossu I stopped watching top gear in the middle of season 14. I watched the rest of season 14 and all of 15 and 16 last night/this morning
21:01 Sasha Lol. Where do you get your top gear from?
21:02 injekton I've started to watch 5th gear
21:02 Sasha *Fifth Gear
21:02 Cprossu I tried watching another episode of american top gear...fail.
21:02 Sasha Nah, only the original one is good.
21:02 Cprossu that's not true
21:02 Cprossu the russian one was funny
21:03 Cprossu but finding the subbed episodes is tough
21:03 Sasha Hah.. no problem for me, I speak russian :p
21:03 Cprossu asshole :p
21:04 Sasha I don't watch it tho, the pressentors are really huge idiots.
21:04 Cprossu that's why I love the original
21:04 Cprossu ^
21:05 injekton weather producer wtf
21:05 Sasha Same
21:05 injekton I never knew this existed http://www.nekochan.net/gallery2/d/15401-2/o2-plus2-screenshot2.png
21:05 Sasha Wait WHAT? They have top gear china now?
21:05 Cprossu you've kind of backed yourself into a corner though if you want to defend your reason for liking the british top gear, Sasha
21:06 Cprossu .tfw 85021
21:06 BotSteve 95�F?! ITS FUCKING HOT IN Phoenix, AZ!  'uncontrollable swamp-ass'

21:07 Cprossu that's pretty intersting though injekton
21:07 Cprossu is it open source?
21:07 injekton WSI = weather channel
21:07 injekton So no
21:08 Sasha Cprossu so where do you get your top gear from? BTW, the original top gear is actually funny, unlike the other ones. Oh, and just how they abused the australian presenters when they came over for a competition...
21:08 SparkyProjects injektion, 4 day forecasts ? try the BBC http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/3339
21:09 Cprossu no what he is showing is a nice graphics maker
21:09 Cprossu what OS is that thing running on anyhow?
21:09 injekton IRIX
21:09 Cprossu it's gotta be some unix variant
21:09 Cprossu COOL
21:09 Cprossu SGI
21:09 Cprossu speaking of sgi
21:09 injekton <3 IRIX
21:09 Cprossu how is yours going?
21:10 injekton I decided to get an external because I need one for the Emax anyway
21:10 Cprossu good deal
21:10 Sasha I just use windoze
21:10 injekton I need a way to load sample CDs into it
21:10 Cprossu did you call up any recyclers
21:10 injekton I bet you use the Google as well
21:10 injekton Cprossu: Tried all they had was wintel crap
21:10 Cprossu injekton: wintel is fine
21:11 Cprossu just as long as it's scsi
21:11 Cprossu the adaptor I showed you should be findable
21:11 Cprossu as would be an internal cd drive
21:11 Cprossu SGI's I don't think are firmware locked
21:11 injekton It doesn't have any internal SCSI cable connections
21:11 Cprossu like DEC's are =P
21:11 Cprossu that's fine
21:12 Cprossu you have an external UW scsi
21:12 Cprossu it's the same as an internal
21:12 Cprossu you just need a adaptor to go from 68pin UW to 50Pin flat
21:12 Cprossu and a power supply
21:12 Cprossu and you can run it
21:13 Sasha BTW, this is too geeky for me :p
21:13 injekton Tomorrow is my birthday and I am going some place with unlimited cocktails :D
21:14 Sasha Ah... I wish this was the case with some place here!
21:14 Cprossu http://m2.sourcingmap.com/smapimg/en/n/09a/pin-male-pin-male-scsi-converter-adapter-accessory-29594n.jpg <- the 'internal' uw 68pin connector plugs right into an 'external' , injekton
21:14 Cprossu from there it's just running a 50 pin ribbon to your scsi cd drive
21:14 Sasha I'll bbl laterz on my iPhonez
21:14 injekton Do you think an external enclosure that houses a Syquest drive work?
21:14 Sasha left #thegeekgroup
21:15 speed-win left #thegeekgroup
21:15 Cprossu I'd have to dig out my syquest drive to make sure
21:15 Cprossu but it should
21:15 injekton I think the drive is dead anyway
21:15 Cprossu but iirc it wasn't 68pin
21:15 injekton damnit
21:15 Cprossu so you'd have to get a 68pin to X adaptor
21:15 Cprossu it's no big deal
21:16 injekton I'm trying to keep this simple
21:16 Cprossu the best thing about scsi (SAS being a minor exception)
21:16 Bat-Mobile joined #thegeekgroup
21:16 Cprossu scsi is great because a dumb adaptor is all you need to convert between standards
21:16 Cprossu no logic required
21:16 Cprossu you can literally buy a external cable that converts whatever to whatever you want
21:17 injekton I know
21:17 Cprossu want to use a UW320 controller with a CD drive from 1990?? there's an adaptor for that!
21:17 Cprossu rofl
21:17 Cprossu and it's not even kludgy if you do it a certain way
21:18 injekton My high school had a SCSI scanner

21:21 Cprossu I'm sure one day we'll have a killer mips emulator that actually works
21:21 injekton IRIX was one of the Unices I enjoyed toying with
21:21 injekton More so than Slowaris
21:23 Cprossu what model is yours?
21:23 Cprossu mine is a EZ135 and has the old big ass centronics ports on the back
21:24 injekton It's a 44MB one
21:24 speedrunnerG55 Oh i see a batsteve

21:58 Phu battery powered dremels do not last long enough
21:59 Cprossu they work really well for trimming amazon parrot beaks though
21:59 Phu " ... "
22:00 Phu i hope either your joking or your referring to practice that is carried out ethically :P
22:00 Cprossu the second
22:00 Phu thats ok then ;)
22:00 Cprossu one of our parrots has a condition
22:00 Cprossu so we have to cut his beak
22:00 Phu ah
22:00 Cprossu the AA powered dremel is the only thing we've found gentle enough
22:01 Cprossu we use a cutoff wheel for it
22:01 Phu I'm trying to cut slots in a piece of aluminium (not aluminum) for slider potetiometers

22:02 Cprossu Phu: http://toolmonger.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/01/post-dremelgolf.jpg
22:02 Cprossu ^ so we use one of those
22:02 Cprossu on low it will bind up if you don't get the angle just right
22:02 Cprossu which rocks.
22:03 speedrunnerG55 Bat left :/

22:05 * Phu sees the dremel
22:05 Phu for aluminium cutting, a mains-powered hi-torque dremel is preferable
22:06 masterofmonks Depends on how much aluminum and what kind of stock.
22:06 mman454 joined #thegeekgroup
22:06 injekton I've got dermatitis
22:06 masterofmonks I work at an aluminum fabrication plant.
22:06 mman454 masterofmonks More precisely what do you do there?
22:07 masterofmonks About the only thing that I haven't done there is running the punch.
22:07 Phu not being knowledge in aluminium classification, i'd say its "nothing special" type, and about 1.5mm thick
22:07 mman454 So what do you guys fabricate?
22:07 Cprossu http://www.denlorstools.com/shop/images/CP-874.jpg
22:08 Cprossu ^ I prefer these to dremels for that sort of work

22:08 injekton They make dildos out of stainless steal
22:08 injekton steel****
22:08 mman454 Oh, that looks nice.
22:08 mman454 LOL
22:09 masterofmonks Phu: straight cuts?
22:10 mman454 masterofmonks What do you charge for your gun locker cases?
22:11 masterofmonks mman454: You would ahve to talk to a salesman, I would suggest that you call Monday morning around 9AM and ask for Sam Osteen.
22:12 mman454 Friend of yours?
22:12 masterofmonks Just the best salesman.
22:12 mman454 Someone who could get me a discount if I mentioned your name? ;)
22:12 masterofmonks Probably not.
22:13 masterofmonks But he won't gouge you either.

22:34 Cprossu_Laptop *calls in a few favors to find the trasmitter for his shack lol*
22:35 Cprossu_Laptop btw I found another whip antenna laying around o_o
22:38 KB3NZQ cprossu if i may give you a bit of advice i would register your call on echo link with the -L and -R as well so that if you need them they are ready to go
22:39 Cprossu I probably will very soon
22:40 Cprossu KB3NZQ hrmmm
22:40 KB3NZQ ???
22:41 KB3NZQ i'm not at the node now
22:41 Cprossu the label is worn off but it is a **yce 20205 and the logo has an R with a shield around it
22:41 Cprossu I meant 2-205
22:42 mman454 So let me get this straight. Its possible to use echo link with a standard ham radio by connecting the equivelent of a femtocell for ham radio to your computer?
22:43 KB3NZQ you need a radio that you can key with vox or ptt and that has a clean output and or COS output
22:44 Cprossu hahaahha
22:44 Cprossu http://www.cbtricks.com/ant_manuals/royce/2_205/ad/index.htm
22:44 Cprossu second one
22:44 mman454 I know nothing about ham other than you can tune into a frequency rather than a channel.
22:44 Cprossu apparently I paid $1.50 for it
22:46 mman454 kb3nzq I don't understand that
22:48 KB3NZQ ok i hear you all i'm gonna say is that you can hook a radio up to a computer and make a linked node but i takes a good bit of planing
22:57 Cprossu that weird cb antenna seems to be real clear on aircraft band
22:59 SparkyProjects mman454, ham radio is similar to CB or personal 'walkie talkies', (don't shoot me) there''s a range of frequencies, and each frequency is allocated a channel number, basically it's easier to say 'go to channel 7' than 'go to 145.675
22:59 SparkyProjects Echolink has a transceiver connected to a computer, this computer connects to another computer, and to its transceiver, in a way it's like skype with cordless handsets, but you can only hold one way converation at a time.
23:00 Cprossu and that's called simplex for that reason
23:00 Cprossu :D
23:01 SparkyProjects Duplex can be one way, but using 2 frequencies, you would need full duplex for true 2way

23:11 Cprossu_Laptop with my scanner
23:12 Cprossu_Laptop and a really weird antenna I bought for $1.50 years ago
23:12 exor674 ... lol I read that as "laserjet" and was wondering how thefuck someone pilots a printer
23:12 Cprossu_Laptop HAHAHAHAA
23:12 Cprossu_Laptop no
23:12 Cprossu_Laptop although it would be awesome to build a laserjet with a jet engine as it's scanner motor
23:13 exor674 nono, as it's fuser
23:13 exor674 ( ofc, Iguess you could use the output to run the printer + redirect the exaust to the fuser
23:13 Cprossu_Laptop no the output will run the laser scanner
23:14 Cprossu_Laptop the heat will go into the fuser
23:14 Cprossu_Laptop and the main printer motor will be relaced by a briggs for good measure
23:14 Ycarene left #thegeekgroup
23:15 Cprossu_Laptop because a weed whacker motor would be too fast
23:16 Cprossu_Laptop the briggs would have a massive flywheel though
23:16 exor674 Cprossu_Laptop: that printer could probably do 120 ppm
23:16 Cprossu_Laptop probably not
23:16 exor674 or more! ( it would probably *have* to run that fast to not set the paper on fire hah )
23:16 Cprossu_Laptop I'd be happy with 20ppm
23:16 Cprossu_Laptop perhaps 24
23:17 Ponko92 wow a printer with a jet engine lol
