00:00 MoxieMike yellow pages?
00:01 wannabe1987 hmmmm
00:01 wannabe1987 then cross check with facebook or google?
00:01 wannabe1987 i want to talk to them about a job...
00:03 wannabe1987 because i want to do do social media represntation and stuff.  I need to build up on it...which is why i'm happy i'm on fb, making a fb page, g+, twitter, linkedin, etc
00:04 Seroster Cross check with facebook?
00:04 Seroster That sume CSI shit you goin on!
00:10 wannabe1987 http://www.geeksaresexy.net/2011/07/13/google-cracks-down-on-pseudonyms-kills-one-reason-it-was-better-than-facebook/
00:10 wannabe1987 nah, cross checking to see if they have online presence other than a website

00:24 wannabe1987 hi angy
00:24 eadthem my dad "I havent gotten any email in the last coupel days i wanted to make shure your server wasnt hicuping or somthing"   me "its linux"   dad "ok"  me "if you can make it yawn without the password, someone would pay you $100,000 a year just for that."
00:24 angy Hi wannabe, how are you this evening?
00:24 wannabe1987 i'm doing good.  making up a to do list to find businesses that would benefit from a web presence that don't have one yet
00:25 wannabe1987 and by web presence i'm not talking website.  i'm talking social media
00:25 angy :)
00:25 angy having just a web page is so outdated now
00:26 wannabe1987 exactly.  they need to be closer to their people so they can communicate with them better
00:26 eadthem wanabe you can probably make a longer list of busneses who have that kind of a web presence, but havent a clue how to properly use it :p
00:26 wannabe1987 my dad is a social media rep for an orphanage...i'm learning lots from him
00:26 wannabe1987 eadthem - LOL
00:26 wannabe1987 i don't know how to find them tho...this is my issue
00:26 wannabe1987 FINDING them
00:27 wannabe1987 i'm active on fb, twitter, g+, blog, etc.  i've even set up a FB page for my blog...
00:27 eadthem oracle comes to mind off the top of my head     to open office volunteer devs "you cant work on k office and open office   its a conflict of intrest".
00:28 wannabe1987 oracle?  i was thinking more local businesses to kzoo...i can't move.
00:28 wannabe1987 unless, i telecommute...work from home.
00:28 wannabe1987 THAT would be nice :D
00:28 eadthem theres that rigging company that epic failed
00:28 eadthem corse there in gr
00:29 wannabe1987 hour away
00:29 eadthem they could probably use some web presence on youtube these days:p
00:29 wannabe1987 well, we could have boden do that :P

00:30 wannabe1987 can't watch a vid yet...watching SGA season 3
00:30 eadthem well thats a good excuse
00:30 LinuxH4x0r hi
00:30 wannabe1987 eadthem lol
00:30 angy telecomute is horrible, you finish by working all the time
00:31 wannabe1987 lol true....
00:31 wannabe1987 my dad doesn't have issues with it (yet) well, not really :P
00:33 angy it's annoying when people start to email/call/page you ever hour of the day thinking that you are working currently

00:48 CaptainBoden AWESOME! :)
00:48 CaptainBoden Good job Steve!
00:49 Seroster Sweet

01:22 wannabe1987 want
01:22 wannabe1987 boyfiriend wouldn't buy a game cube tho :(
01:22 speedrunnerG55 Gamecube?
01:22 wannabe1987 yep
01:22 wannabe1987 to play zelda on
01:22 wannabe1987 and Tony Hawk
01:23 speedrunnerG55 ...get a wii u
01:23 speedrunnerG55 When it comes out

01:27 tggmc batman is not here
01:28 Hackotter left #thegeekgroup
01:28 SparkyProjects Yes Seroster
01:28 Seroster Yaaay
01:29 Seroster Theoretically.
01:29 Seroster Can you have more than three phases?
01:29 speedrunnerG55 tggObtuse: ?!
01:29 Seroster I know why you have two or three phases, but couldnt you have 5? 26? 115? =P
01:30 wannabe1987 phases of ?
01:31 Seroster POWAH
01:31 tggmc .cookie
01:31 BotSteve Here you go, tggmc, I baked you a christmas cookie!
01:31 wannabe1987 yum!
01:32 tggmc how is the live feed volume?
01:32 SparkyProjects Yes, but not in normal supplies, The Atomic Energy Research Establishent at Harwell Oxfordshire UK (close to where i used to live) were supplied with 6 phases, basically a motor generaator, 3 phase to drive the motor, 6 phases output, and from what i hear they used it partly for a DC supply (6 phase rectifier)
01:32 Seroster What
01:32 Seroster We make a special 6phase system, then we rectify it! YAY!
01:32 Seroster I know you drive on the wrong side and all, but damn, that sounds stupid :P
01:34 SparkyProjects 3 phases are 120 degrees of separation, 6 phases is 60 degrees, makes for a smoother output, just like computer PSU's that run at high freq.
01:34 SparkyProjects And i did say 'part of it' was used for DC
01:34 Seroster Right...
01:35 Seroster I thought that's what capacitors are for :P
01:35 wannabe1987 what is good (open source/free) website design software for a windows machine?
01:35 SparkyProjects Yeah, but a smootng capacitor discharges between peaks a little, but if you get twice as many peaks, you get smoother DC, and more power
01:36 SparkyProjects wannabe1987 Notepad :D
01:36 SparkyProjects it's what i use :P
01:36 wannabe1987 lol
01:36 SparkyProjects If you're lazy there's coffeecup
01:36 wannabe1987 isn't that mainly for coding tho?  not designing?
01:37 Seroster So the limit for the ammount of phases is how many coils you can fit around your generator shaft...
01:37 SparkyProjects My friend (captainniobe) isn't  so much a designer, but she uses it for hers.
01:38 Seroster But since you can have them offset to one another you could have 720 phases, but that would be silly.
01:38 Hackbat joined #thegeekgroup
01:39 SparkyProjects Seroster, yes, that's about the size of it.
01:39 SparkyProjects if you take a stepper motor and separate the coils, in theory you'd have way more than 6 phases
01:40 Seroster But if I made a generator I would have 4 phases =P
01:40 Seroster No matter the ammount of phases you will end up with 0 if you tie them all together?
01:41 SparkyProjects If you're going to make a generator to produce DC, have as many phases as possible, and spin it fast
01:41 Seroster I will never have to use any dc that smooth
01:42 Seroster Shouldnt it be easier to just add a few more caps?
01:42 SparkyProjects That would work, or add a battery :P
01:42 Seroster Or first rectifying 50hz to DC, invert it to the megahertz range and then rectify that, plus capacitors.
01:43 SparkyProjects That's even better
01:43 Seroster But now we are getting into the realm of reasonable, not insane.
01:43 SparkyProjects Some inverters run at about 47khz
01:43 Seroster So I think I'll pull the plug on this thought experiment and go to bed =P
01:44 Seroster The faster the better, eh?
01:44 SparkyProjects Be careful about rf
01:44 Seroster Put it all in a microwave =P
01:44 SparkyProjects MHz ranges would need special transistors
01:45 Seroster Like what you got in a TV? ;)
01:45 SparkyProjects yep, that would work
01:45 SparkyProjects oops, no
01:45 SparkyProjects not for mhz
01:45 SparkyProjects tv trasnmitter maybe
01:47 Seroster Heh, time to raid the local channel 4! =D
01:48 Seroster Ill need bolt cutters, ph2, flashlight, ski mask...
01:48 SparkyProjects Just go for something in the khz range, much easier to source
01:49 Seroster ...And a backup plan.. The daughter of the chan 4 CEO...
01:51 Seroster Cya SparkyProjects, stay safe ^^

02:15 tggmc it's going up 'soon'
02:15 SparkyProjects OK

02:15 SparkyProjects haha, yeah :D
02:15 tggmc oh I got a geeky thing to show you
02:15 tggmc give me one sec to wire it up

12:34 wannabe1987 hi
12:34 yNos so how are things out there today?
12:34 yNos i get to work from home today, i i has big grinz
12:34 yNos wait...today is thirsday, right?
12:35 yNos thursday
12:35 Thermoelectric Yes.
12:35 yNos w00t
12:36 yNos i have to grind through about 120 machines and setup root's ssh keys and ssh_verify scripts that we wrote last week..
12:36 wannabe1987 i'm ok.  debating going back to sleep for an hour or two
12:40 yNos and hp/ux wont allow me to script it because you have to have a terminal attached to your ssh session for sudo.. and you cant do that when you are tagging the commands on to a ssh $USER@$HOST "CMDLIST"
12:40 yNos if you have no reason to stay up, why not get some wonderfull sleep?
12:41 wannabe1987 lol exactly.  plus i feel ill (damn side effect) and i feel better after sleeping
12:41 wannabe1987 maybe i should take my pills in the evening...hmmmmm
12:42 wannabe1987 see, then tho their more effective when i'm sleeping and not when awake
12:42 yNos couple shots o'wodka and naptime!
12:42 wannabe1987 vodka + anti-depressants = NO-NO
12:42 yNos depends on the anti-depressants
12:42 yNos MAOIs, agreed
12:42 wannabe1987 zoloft?
12:43 Sasha_ You guys mix vodka and anti-depressants?
12:43 wannabe1987 no
12:44 yNos looks like it works on the same receptors, so it is a 2 for 1 special @wannabe1987's house!
12:45 wannabe1987 ...
12:45 wannabe1987 no she's going to sleep now
12:45 yNos :P
12:45 wannabe1987 its only quarter to 9
12:46 yNos If a person chooses to drink alcohol while taking Zoloft, he or she should only drink light to moderate amounts -- and only after he or she understands the effects that Zoloft (and other medicines he or she may be taking) can have on the body.
12:46 CaptainBoden Ynos! :)

12:46 BotSteve At 05:22Z, Cprossu_netbook asked me to tell CaptainBoden READ YOUR PM, IMPORTANT AS FUCK.
12:46 yNos YO!
12:46 CaptainBoden Are you ready for fun today?
12:46 yNos Yes
12:46 yNos carb kits are not in yet though
12:47 CaptainBoden well, shit
12:47 CaptainBoden ETA?
12:47 yNos none, didnt get a tracking number :(
12:47 yNos am working from home so i can grab them if they come in today
12:48 CaptainBoden k
12:48 CaptainBoden , did someone grab a screenshot of our hacked ustream?
12:48 devast8a is now known as devast8a|away
12:48 CaptainBoden I'd like to see it
12:48 yNos hacked ustream?
12:49 CaptainBoden someone hacked the ustream account and started streaming 'fuck you' and my address,
12:49 yNos nice
12:49 yNos your personal street address?
12:49 CaptainBoden no idea, I haven't seen it
12:49 CaptainBoden But there's a fifty in it if someone can positively ID who did it.
12:50 CaptainBoden I'd dearly love to know.
12:50 Sasha_ Oh captainboden, hi
12:50 Sasha_ Did you get my email?
12:50 CaptainBoden yes
12:50 Sasha_ So are you interested in being sponsored or would you rather get rent money from someone else :P?
12:51 CaptainBoden Right now though, we're working on solving who hacked us.
12:51 yNos :( time to put a shirt on.. tome for a video conf call..
12:51 yNos **time
12:51 CaptainBoden I'm intereted in being sponsored, but it's a powerfully low priority right now. They're not going to give us any money, they *may* give us stuff.
12:51 CaptainBoden Right now I'm focused on building the lab, I have to be.
12:52 Sasha_ Ok. So basically I shouldn't bug you with it unless this actually happens?
12:52 CaptainBoden And at this moment, I need to solve who hacked us. The reward is Fifty dollars, I want his IP, Name, and Address.
12:52 CaptainBoden Now you're catching on, yes.

13:00 Sasha_ Hmmmm... I wonder what chris will do once he gets that IP, Name and Address... .50 caliber rifle time anyone?
13:01 yNos they dont have that info at ustream?
13:01 yNos seems like it would be logged
13:02 Cprossu_netbook joined #thegeekgroup
13:02 Cprossu_netbook .log
13:02 BotSteve Channel history can be found at: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/thegeekgroup/today
13:02 Sasha_ I truly doubt anyone could do it. Plus, by now, the hacker's IP would have probs already changed.
13:03 yNos but if you get logs/timestamps, you can get the info from the ISP..
13:04 yNos and having the address would likely give us a region..
13:04 Sasha_ I tried doing stuff like that several times, and also read up on a bunch of people who did stuff like that. If we were to find him, we would need to use reverse psychology or whatever.
13:04 Sasha_ Stuff as in look up logs
13:06 yNos most business require a court order to get logs.
13:07 Cprossu_netbook isp's have logs
13:07 Cprossu_netbook of dhcp's
13:08 Sasha_ But first you need to find the IP
13:08 yNos right, those are the ones that usually require a court order
13:09 yNos if ustream has logs we can get, we can look at that address and maybe through process of elimination, figure out the person that might feel they have been wronged by chris...
13:09 yNos Cap'n, how big is that list?
13:10 Sasha_ I am pretty sure that Ustream doesn't have that list available to its users
13:10 ajprog_laptop joined #thegeekgroup
13:10 yNos for example, doing a traceroute on 173-13-12-254-Michigan.hfc.comcastbusiness.net would tell us that this modem is in GRR
13:10 yNos need to check with ustream's support.
13:10 yNos do we have a timeframe?
13:10 Sasha_ Well guys, look at how much trouble this hacker went to find someone's IP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4oB28ksiIo
13:11 Sasha_ He ended up using other methods to recover his computer
13:11 yNos here is a classic... http://w2.eff.org/Net_culture/Hackers/stalking_the_wily_hacker.article

13:47 yNos Cprossu_netbook: if you can find a way up here... you can use ours
13:51 Sasha_ Yeah well my dad once thought that all the ethernet wires I was installing throughout the house (for free) were not comparable to the 150 mb/s powerline crap that the "technician" would install (for over 1000$)
13:51 Cprossu_netbook ewwww
13:52 Sasha_ And plus the technician tried to convince me that his "fastest powerline possible" 150mb/s powerline would be faster than my Cat 7 cable
13:52 Cprossu_netbook cat...7?!
13:53 Python .g cat7
13:53 BotSteve Python: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category_7_cable
13:53 Cprossu_netbook yes I know what it is
13:53 Cprossu_netbook why the hell would you run it in a house?
13:53 Cprossu_netbook I mean cat5e is good to 10g
13:54 Sasha_ Well, the thing is that I got like a km of that cable for free...
13:54 Cprossu_netbook ok that is a good reason
13:54 Cprossu_netbook if you actually paid money for it though
13:54 Sasha_ I would :P
13:54 Cprossu_netbook pffft
13:55 Cprossu_netbook seriously for running house ethernet?

13:57 yNos i guess not all flat satin is cat 3, but all that i have used is..
13:57 Cprossu_netbook rofl no I meant twisted pair ct3
13:57 Cprossu_netbook *cat3
13:58 Cprossu_netbook plenum too (since I have boxes of it)
14:08 Sasha_ Wait, wait. How can you get gigabit on cat 3?
14:09 tonsofpcs Sasha_: really short run?
14:09 Sasha_ Oh... didn't think of that :P
14:09 Sasha_ But isn't the signal digital?
14:10 tonsofpcs signals are never digital.
14:10 tonsofpcs at least, not physical signals
14:11 Sasha_ But like, people say that there is no difference between 100$ HDMI cables and 1$ HDMI cables due to the fact that the signals are digital
14:11 tonsofpcs also, I'd rather unshielded bonded Cat6A than Cat7.
14:11 wannabe-zz joined #thegeekgroup
14:12 tonsofpcs Sasha_: there most definitely is a difference.  That said, for a run of about 5' in a home environment, you generally won't see the difference since there won't be interference or other issues
14:12 CaptainBoden Ynos, you here?
14:12 yNos yup
14:13 CaptainBoden What's the plan for today?
14:13 yNos even if the kits dont come in, i will come down and do something
14:13 CaptainBoden k
14:14 tonsofpcs someone here can likely explain signaling and cables a lot more succinctly than I.  If you want gory details, see me later [gotta run to work now] :)
14:14 wannabe1987 left #thegeekgroup
14:14 Sasha_ Meh... I shouldn't be talking. Still using VGA and SCART cables here.
14:15 stevyrey its the home hifi freaks who buy little feet for their cables to stop the floorboards inducting noise from the cables resonance
14:16 Sasha_ Oh really? I thought those thingies were to keep cables on walls and stuff
14:16 CaptainBoden Can you track the shipment and get some info?
14:17 stevyrey sasha nope theres specific ones for idiots too
14:17 CaptainBoden "More money than brains" is a common problem in the audiophile world.
14:17 tonsofpcs Sasha_: nothing wrong with component video in coax... (SCART isn't really a signal type but a connector so I can't speak to that :)
14:18 CaptainBoden http://www.higherfi.com/audio_amps/1
14:18 Sasha_ Ah... Ok. Hope my 50$ crappy philips stereo that makes more noise than music doesn't make me have more money than brains :P

14:28 Sasha_ One of my drummer friends actually made a song with phil collins. Cause, you know, he like lives 5 minutes away from me.
14:29 stevyrey sweet
14:29 Sasha_ I'm pretty sure there aren't many celebs living in Grand Rapids
14:31 stevyrey youd probably be surprised its amazing who hides away where you dont expect them

16:42 wannabe1987 huh?
16:43 SparkyStudio Depends what you are measuring, generally you hook the tab on something to measure the outside, or push the tab against something to get inside measurements
16:43 SparkyStudio If you want it mm accurate, then start fro sat the 50mm point, remembering to subtract that from the final measurement
16:43 staccers .cookie wannabe1987 botsteve makes it happen, riihgt?

16:52 wannabe1987 well, i have a tape measure usually used in sewing (used to measure someones waist, couldn't find the other one (GRRRRR)...) so i'll do like you suggest and start at 2 inches andminus an inch
16:52 SparkyStudio If you start at 2 inches, you need to minus the 2
16:53 SparkyStudio Count the inches if you have to
16:53 wannabe1987 counting is good
16:54 Cprossu_netbook whats up all?
16:54 SparkyStudio Also, those tapes can stretch and shrink a little, hope you don't need too accurate

16:56 SparkyStudio You should be fine if you're not making a tight fit

16:56 wannabe1987 well, i would like a tight fit, see.  let me upload a picture of my drawer

16:57 staccers left #thegeekgroup

19:18 SparkyProjects On the old valve driven black and white tv i used to hold my fingernail close to the HT valve anode and watch the spark
19:18 SparkyProjects On a colour one i tried to do the same and that was a 'fuck that hurt'
19:18 SparkyProjects I've got close to the HT lead of a colour tv and felt the wrath, but the rubber was in place, i only got leakage
19:18 SparkyProjects And i've had a shock (and oops moment) from a HT lead after the TV was turned off.
19:18 SparkyProjects Though  would not like to test it out, at the frequency this should be skin conductance, and 'should not' damage internal organs, but i guess it would definitely be felt and various words will be uttered

19:57 Sasha_ Unless they're really goo.

20:13 SparkyStudio Why does everyone put tubes in with the power off ? :P
20:13 SparkyStudio Not like 110 or 240 will jump to the other end of the tube
20:14 Seroster Heh
20:14 Seroster In theory it is safe
20:14 Seroster In practice why not just flip the switch to off? =P
20:14 Toastdude Seroster: That reminded me of the magnets up Chris's nose snapping together...
20:15 mashpriborintorg maybe for ballast issues ?
20:15 mashpriborintorg yeah lol
20:15 Seroster mashpriborintorg, Doesnt make any difference whatsoever
20:16 mashpriborintorg but it seems there is very few "blood and tears" events at the lab, it's a luck
20:16 Seroster I saw toes flying off during the 75kva transformer move
20:16 SparkyStudio I've only found one ballast (dual tube electronic) that needed the power to be turned off and back on before it would strike
20:16 mashpriborintorg this move was pretty dangerous I agree
20:17 Seroster It had potential to be dangerous.
20:17 Seroster But so does driving a car, drinking a cup of tea or taking the bus to work
20:18 Seroster SparkyStudio, the TV bit me
20:18 Seroster I thought I had grounded out the tube with my dirty ground, but it got some umph left in it
20:19 Toastdude I put aluminium foil on a tv screen....
20:19 Toastdude It hurt
20:19 mashpriborintorg stupid accidents occurs when to do not except then
20:19 Seroster Indeed they do
20:19 wannabe1987 Toastdude why
20:20 mashpriborintorg my gf hurt his eye while handling a broomstick some years ago
20:20 Seroster mashpriborintorg, I am still missing one toenail due to a stupid accident involving a 400kg HAKI scaffold.
20:20 mashpriborintorg she lost some accuracy with this eye forever
20:20 SparkyStudio Seroster, now you know what it's like :D

20:21 Toastdude wannabe1987: It was an analog TV, so there's static.... I wanted to collect the static and discharge it, but I accidentally touched the aluminum foil....
20:21 wannabe1987 lol
20:21 Toastdude It was a big TV
20:21 mashpriborintorg yeah even crt implosions are not so dangerous
20:22 mashpriborintorg last time i did tinker a crt tv, it exploded at my face, so not for my anymore
20:22 Seroster mashpriborintorg, The first one I disarmed scared the shit out of me
20:22 Toastdude Lots of static..... about like a Ven de Graff
20:22 mashpriborintorg stupid Philips switching power supply

20:27 Sasha_ BTW, I have one of Philips' TV's with a broken PSU, and a stereo system that makes more noise than music
20:27 SparkyStudio Yeah, if you remove the plastic thing where the tube pins are, tou'll see a bit of glass sticking out, that's the seal where they evaccuated the tube, easy to break wit pliers or a hammer
20:27 speedrunnerG55 Can annyone test my minecraft server?
20:27 Seroster Or you just kick the entire back end of it off
20:27 speedrunnerG55 If so pm mr

20:38 producerbill whats up bitches
20:38 Seroster ...And they could be replaced with a $5 usual damn relay
20:39 producerbill that sucks
20:39 mashpriborintorg lol
20:41 producerbill I wish I know the proper way to wire up a relay to a micro controller
20:43 producerbill I imagine you would connect the output to a opto coupler that could up ramp the power for a rebus relay
20:43 Seroster For what purpose?
20:43 mashpriborintorg not sure you can do it directly, without a transistor command, unless you find low power coils relays of the correct voltage
20:43 producerbill does that sound right to anyone else?
20:44 Seroster You can make it work
20:44 Seroster Properly? I dunno about that.
20:44 mashpriborintorg and do not forget the free-roll diode for the coil
20:44 producerbill li will not forget,,,, because I would need to know what that is.... lol.

20:46 SparkyStudio click on the diagram
20:46 mashpriborintorg you connect  reverse a diode in parallel with the coil, it allows the coil to discharge without damaging anything, when you suddenly cut its power supply

21:06 hubzcaps ouch
21:07 Seroster SparkyStudio, I think the word you was looking for was "Maniac"
21:07 tggmc meh but it's nice here in grr
21:07 Seroster tggmc, the audio sucks.
21:07 hubzcaps who is at MC ??

21:07 hubzcaps yhea
21:07 Seroster Like... Backing monitor
21:08 tggmc yeah there is ._.
21:08 tggmc I'll see what I can do
21:08 Seroster SO GET DOWN THERE TURN IT OFF! ARRRR!

21:08 tggmc easier said then done and our cables are not long enough
21:08 Toastdude Hi speedrunnerG55
21:08 hubzcaps (:
21:08 Seroster Would be great if we could hack into the wireless mike audio
21:08 mashpriborintorg they are doing carb chirurgy, serious stuff, not the time for shouting
21:08 hubzcaps yhea
21:09 Sasha_ Darn, there was a very good song in the beer ad shown just before the stream
21:09 Seroster mashpriborintorg, carbs can take quite a beating
21:09 hubzcaps oooook
21:09 Seroster I boiled one in sodium hydroxide the other day
21:09 speedrunnerG55 Hi hubzcaps
21:09 hubzcaps wuttup g
21:09 Seroster Sup speedrunnerG55
21:09 speedrunnerG55 Hi Seroster
21:09 SparkyStudio It's pistons that are delicate :D
21:09 Seroster OOO
21:09 Seroster Better!
21:09 Seroster LOTS better!
21:10 Seroster Something snapped and the 60hz disappeared, but then it got back gradually
21:10 mashpriborintorg especially when you try to put then back in place, without the correct tools
21:10 Seroster You need tools to reinstall pistons?
21:10 SparkyStudio Seroster has one with half the skirt missing
21:10 mashpriborintorg I remember seeing a re-assembly video of a Porsche V6 engine, it was something crazy
21:10 Seroster Ah, you talking real engines...
21:11 hubzcaps my speakers are rt next to my tower so i dnt hear the 60 hz buzzzz as much
21:11 Seroster mashpriborintorg, A jackass tried to increase power by beating a hole in the skirt with a hammer
21:11 hubzcaps LS1 wooot
21:11 SparkyStudio Only tool you need is a piston ring clamp (though a tin can works too)
21:11 SparkyStudio But generally you can compress small rings by hand
21:12 mashpriborintorg skirts are more interesting with holes, aren't they ? XD
21:12 hubzcaps ill remembr that can trick

21:13 hubzcaps i just got a JVC HD everio
21:13 hubzcaps love the lens
21:13 hubzcaps 1080 X 720
21:13 hubzcaps 60P nightshot and cinima 24P
21:13 SparkyStudio hubzcaps, cut a can, wrap it round the piston, bend tabs outward so there;s a gap, then use vice grips to clamp closed
21:14 mashpriborintorg lwq1996: I received a broken Olympus µ-tough digicam for my collection. Very beautifull device, but dead
21:14 hubzcaps (: <writeing

21:24 * mashpriborintorg sleep time cheers
21:24 Cprossu_netbook mdh # 1
21:24 egrsteve hmm, looks odd
21:24 Cprossu_netbook and someone dropped your power supply
21:24 egrsteve like the gain is too high
21:24 Cprossu_netbook so it's overheating
21:24 egrsteve my power supply?
21:25 egrsteve oh one the camera, I suppose just build  a new one
21:25 Cprossu_netbook done and done
21:25 egrsteve now focus

21:29 Cprossu_netbook chris says live with the hum
21:29 KB3NZQ cprossu my tower lives but i had to drop 150W of load off of it
21:29 Cprossu_netbook lol
21:29 hubzcaps a graphics card
21:29 Cprossu_netbook 150 watts seems steep
21:29 Cprossu_netbook I bet you dropped more like 40
21:29 KB3NZQ no i had a 500 in it now i have a 350
21:30 hubzcaps oh
21:30 Cprossu_netbook you mean 'rated' at
21:30 KB3NZQ ok
21:31 Cprossu_netbook gonna calibrate this viewfinder a bit egrsteve
21:31 bsullivan well i have ot restart, be back in a little bit
21:31 Cprossu_netbook it looks like SHIT compared to the image coming out
21:31 egrsteve ok
21:31 Cprossu_netbook and we'll have to train folks to NOT MESS WITH GAIN lol
21:31 bsullivan left #thegeekgroup
21:31 egrsteve that we do, gain has uses but not when there is enough light
21:32 egrsteve does that viewfinder have a zebra switch on it
21:32 Cprossu_netbook yeah but it's not doing anything I think it's dirty.
21:33 egrsteve this is why you need a waveform moniter on the system, MC would route the camera on a preview bus to the moniter and adjust it with the meter as well as visual
21:33 Cprossu_netbook got it working
21:33 egrsteve ok
21:35 egrsteve looks better but contrasty, it might be the lack of front lighting
21:35 egrsteve that and white bal is off

21:46 masterofmonks So Cprossu_netbook I passed my tech test, I didn't bother with trying for general since the questions had changed a couple of days before, so I am going to grab Gordo's books for general and extra and blow through that in September.
21:47 egrsteve masterofmonks general is easy
21:47 egrsteve extra will require a lot more studying
21:47 * egrsteve should get extra study materials

21:48 egrsteve also congrats on your tech
21:48 masterofmonks egrsteve: I am sure general would be, but with the question pool changing, I wasn't going to waste the $15 on something that I felt I had a 50% chance of passing.
21:48 Cprossu_netbook congrats on your tech though
21:48 egrsteve thats true, neither would i
21:48 Cprossu_netbook good deal tonsofpcs

22:20 Cprossu_netbook egrsteve just cleaned the viewfinder
22:20 Cprossu_netbook it's a better world
22:20 SparkyStudio Cprossu, you need to search places for second hand in-car dvd players, the type that hang on the seats for kids to watch, they are 12 v and have a composite input
22:21 Cprossu_netbook or I could just hang a monitor on it
22:21 egrsteve ah ok
22:21 Cprossu_netbook this is heavy duty
22:21 SparkyStudio would make a 6 or 7 inch monitor

22:42 lwq1996 2 are red and 2 are white
22:43 lwq1996 im thinking 2wires are for a amp uperage and the other 2 are for a volt upage
22:46 speedrunnerG55 joined #thegeekgroup
22:47 SparkyStudio not finding anything on those numbers
22:47 SparkyStudio sounds like a mains transformer, 2 wires will be primary, 2 wires will be secondary maybe with a centre tap
22:47 SparkyStudio The secondary wires would each go to a diode, other ends of diode will be +, centre will be -

23:03 Seroster SparkyStudio, you mentioned something about metering, what should I look for?
23:04 Noise_Marine joined #thegeekgroup
23:04 lwq1996 amps and voltage
23:04 Seroster lwq1996, DIE!
23:04 lwq1996 ????
23:04 Seroster Or you werent responding to me? =P
23:04 lwq1996 sorry tired
23:04 lwq1996 i didnt see who it was from
23:05 Seroster Ah
23:05 SparkyStudio OK, the 2 reds are thinner, i can only guess they are the primary (mains), the 2 white will be secondary, if there's a third wire on the same side as the whites, that may be centre tap
23:05 SparkyStudio Personally i would take a chance and wire the reds to mains, but just pulse it on at first
23:05 SparkyStudio As for output voltage, i would guess 6 - 9v,
23:05 SparkyStudio Seroster, if you can get the meter probes across the fuse, it should show a dead short if the fuse is ok
23:06 Seroster Ah, lol.
23:06 lwq1996 no there was one conected right to the side where to holes were
23:06 Seroster If I could get that close to the fuse I could just look at it and see if there was metal vapour on the inside of the glass
23:06 SparkyStudio Ah, ok, no centre tap
23:08 SparkyStudio Seroster, the board usually slides out on a TV, either a couple of clips on the guide rails, or a couple of screws, you  may have to pull off any knobs on the front

23:24 SparkyStudio Also seroster, can you access the underside of the board where the fuse is ? you can test there
23:24 Seroster Nope
23:25 Seroster The underside is cast plastic
23:25 Seroster The top side is the furthest down into the tv you can get
23:25 Seroster Under a plethera of cables and crap you can see a bit of the fuse
23:25 Seroster Five screws that are a bitch to get to hold the board in place
23:26 Seroster Then you have to wrestle it out, rip out half the cables...
