00:49 tonsofpcs lwq1996: for reference, we once sent a photograph over the neighborhood, with home circled, to an IRC visitor from Iraq.
00:49 tonsofpcs eadthem: anything not involving me :D
00:49 tonsofpcs jeffrey_: ^^
00:50 tonsofpcs he totally freaked out.  came back like a month later asking us where our CIA cronies were near him and if we had stopped bugging him yet.
00:53 * CSM_away facepalm
00:53 tonsofpcs CSM_away: don't lie to us.
00:53 CSM_away hahahaha i'm so fucking stupid.

01:07 Obtuse_ awww thank you wannabe1987
01:08 KB3NZQ joined #thegeekgroup
01:08 Obtuse_ I don't think i've mentioned this to this community ... but i got a new job
01:08 KB3NZQ is google or youtube or gmail down for you too
01:08 Obtuse_ as a test engineer
01:08 Obtuse_ at L3 communications - Avionics division
01:09 tonsofpcs congrats
01:10 Obtuse_ thnaks tonsofpcs
01:10 lwq1996 hi all
01:11 Obtuse_ ?
01:12 Obtuse_ it'll be so nice to not have to deal with international phone call meetings
01:12 tonsofpcs heh
01:13 tonsofpcs You would think that I wouldn't have to deal with things like that either... but when you have suppliers in europe and need to coordiinate logistics with folks on the far coast...
01:13 Obtuse_ haha. true
01:13 Obtuse_ well at least you don't have china or japan :)
01:14 tonsofpcs i think the tech support from ireland was the worst
01:14 Obtuse_ 12 - 14 hour difference
01:14 tonsofpcs no, I have australia.
01:14 Obtuse_ nm
01:14 Obtuse_ who do you work with in australia?
01:15 tonsofpcs that I can remember right now?  Tieline Technology
01:15 tonsofpcs I know I've had to deal with someone else out there though... only had to wait for a reply from australia once w/ Tieline
01:16 Obtuse_ it use to be a monthly thing for me
01:16 Obtuse_ i had the day off and luckily didn't have to go to the 8 pm call tonight
01:17 tonsofpcs that said, I'm on call 24/7 anyway and often schedule maintenance at 0dark30
01:17 Obtuse_ ah true
01:17 tonsofpcs (well, more often unscheduled, but that's cus we're short staff and can't schedule days off really...)
01:18 Obtuse_ that's where I like this new job, I'll work 9 hours a day so i can have every other friday off
01:18 Obtuse_ and 15 days paid time off
01:19 eadthem Obtuse_ L3  as in leval 3?
01:19 tonsofpcs oh, I can take time off, that's fine, but with that and the short staffing, we can't shift schedules for maintenance
01:19 tonsofpcs L3 as in L3 communications who does satcom stuff, I'm assuming
01:19 Obtuse_ I don't think its the same company eadthem
01:19 Obtuse_ http://www.l-3com.com/
01:20 tonsofpcs Obtuse_: once you start working there, I want a price on a Ku-band fly-pack.  You have no idea how hard it is to get a price for a single item from a federal contractor....
01:20 tonsofpcs I spoke to someone at NAB last year about them and got a reply of "how many do you want"... hey, at least the guy talked to me... one of the manufs won't even return my calls
01:21 Obtuse_ more specifically... this is what I will be working with ... http://www.as.l-3com.com/
01:22 Obtuse_ haha. i'll see what i can do.
01:22 Obtuse_ I probably won't even have access to that kind of info
01:22 R3dmous3 joined #thegeekgroup
01:23 tonsofpcs yea, probably not.
01:23 tonsofpcs and even if you did, it's not like anyone would sell one to me...
01:25 Obtuse_ what is Ku-band anyway?
01:25 speed_linux hi
01:25 tonsofpcs satellite, mostly used for telecom
01:25 speed_linux hi R3dmous3
01:25 R3dmous3 Hello
01:25 speed_linux u new here?
01:26 Obtuse_ ah cool.
01:26 tonsofpcs it's the band that DBS television (dish/directv) are in
01:26 R3dmous3 Ya just checking it
01:26 Obtuse_ oooo
01:26 speed_linux cool. enjoy your stay R3dmous3
01:26 R3dmous3 thanks
01:26 tonsofpcs 10950 MHz - 13000ish
01:26 speed_linux :)
01:26 Obtuse_ I'll just be a lowly tester. setting up test equipment to test products
01:27 Obtuse_ for production testing and FAA certificiation
01:27 Obtuse_ great place to get started though
01:27 tonsofpcs (the borders aren't really well defined, but most 'standard' LNBs are set up for that low end)
01:29 Obtuse_ however, i had never seen so much test equipment in my life at a facility
01:29 Obtuse_ custom equipment too
01:30 tonsofpcs well, of course.
01:30 * tonsofpcs wants that much test equipment btw
01:30 tonsofpcs all NIST tracable, I'd bet?
01:30 Obtuse_ NIST?
01:31 Obtuse_ i walked though and there were some mad expensive spectrum analyzers.
01:31 tonsofpcs http://www.nist.gov/traceability/
01:31 tonsofpcs I got a mad expensive audio spectrum analyzer second-hand... it was NIST-tracable like 12 years ago and has a giant label on it "not for critical measurements" or somesuch because it wasn't precise enough for certified measurements in the lab it was in.
01:32 Obtuse_ haha. awesome!
01:32 tonsofpcs (I got a few things from this lab, some have this sticker, some have a calibration sticker every 18 months or so)
01:32 Obtuse_ at JCI i think they calibrate every year
01:33 tonsofpcs well, knowing what this equipment was used for, honestly they didn't need fully calibrated instruments
01:34 tonsofpcs I calibrate my instruments for their use... we have a house standard that is standard and remains standard and will always be standard, even if it drifts like crazy (unless we decide to stop trusting it, then we need to figure something else out)
01:34 * speed_linux pokes CSNomster
01:34 Obtuse_ cool
01:34 * lwq1996 -pokes speed-
01:35 lwq1996 and shes katemonster today
01:35 * speed_linux pokes lwq1996
01:35 tonsofpcs mind you, in video, this 'house standard' is a SMPTE color bar generator (audio we have tone generators all over the place -- frequency doesn't matter much and we're digital audio so level is the same everywhere*)
01:35 lwq1996 masterofmonks can you please set me to +v again
01:36 masterofmonks lwq1996: What company was nicknamed El Pulpo?
01:36 Obtuse_ haha. make him work for it
01:37 masterofmonks You should know this one.
01:37 lwq1996 united fruit company?
01:37 lwq1996 yay
01:38 lwq1996 i learned something :D
01:38 masterofmonks Yes, even though that was a guess.
01:38 masterofmonks But even guesses can be correct sometimes.
01:39 tonsofpcs wasn't that the same answer yesterday?
01:39 lwq1996 it was an educated guess
01:39 masterofmonks tonsofpcs: Testing his retention.
01:39 NeWtoz lol, thought that said retardation
01:40 NeWtoz no offense, just read it wrong
01:40 tonsofpcs NeWtoz: it did, but masterofmonks changed it before sending. ;)
01:40 masterofmonks And he already won his +v for today.

11:27 tggmc1 and my phone was on silent o_o
11:27 tggmc1 I assure you this wasn't on purpose
11:28 mashpriborintorg bad thing, I never put my phone on silent, but sometimes it switches itself to silent Oo
11:28 MadManMarkAu I do it in my sleep
11:28 MadManMarkAu My alarm goes off, I silence it to shut it up, and the sleep timer never goes off again :P
11:29 MadManMarkAu So, what's up in MC, tggmc1?
11:29 mashpriborintorg When I was at high scholl, I used to have a big red emergency stop button on my alarm clock
11:29 MadManMarkAu lol
11:29 MadManMarkAu INB4 Kipkay + horn alarm
11:29 mashpriborintorg finally removed it, I was hitting it without getting awake
11:30 tggmc1 I bet you guys can even read stuff on the magni now
11:30 _ato_ clear as day
11:30 masterofmonks I wrote a daily task that my comupter executes for my alarm.
11:30 tggmc1 needs work heh
11:31 brousch joined #thegeekgroup
11:31 [Python] joined #thegeekgroup
11:31 MadManMarkAu How's the genlock?
11:31 MadManMarkAu All fixed now?
11:31 tggmc1 I wouldn't say so
11:31 tggmc1 but I am getting the hang of it
11:31 tggmc1 not all sources are fixed because i still have to synchronize the second 6 inputs
11:31 tggmc1 etc
11:31 MadManMarkAu Ah, kk
11:32 tggmc1 getting there though
11:32 mashpriborintorg the picture is much sharper also
11:33 tggmc1 we are now running a quadcore phenom 9750, radeon x1900xtx, blackmagic intensity pro cap card for video, and a lexicon alpha sound device for audio
11:33 tggmc1 I'm going to try and swap the graphics for something a little less overpowered so I can trim the UPS load some
11:33 tggmc1 but I'll see how this setup rolls first
11:34 tggmc1 everything needed to 'hold the stream up' is working at right around 550 watts
11:35 tggmc1 this is the stream computer, the saturn surface, the saturn router, the saturn server, the orban, the mackie, the saturn hub, the internet switch, and the emergency switcher
11:36 mashpriborintorg it's a reasonable load
11:36 tggmc1 possibly a few other devices I didn't list too
11:36 tggmc1 I think I can trim it by about 100 watts
11:36 tggmc1 which will give me ~10 mins of extra batt time
11:37 mashpriborintorg a thermal engine generator with auto start should be fine
11:38 mashpriborintorg except for neighbors, maybe :/
11:38 tggmc1 you get right on that
11:38 tggmc1 I need to find another power supply for another project I am trying to complete before leaving =/
11:38 mashpriborintorg a loud cluncky diesel engine, strating at 3 am...
11:39 tggmc1 btw when was the last time you 'saw what mc looks like' mashpriborintorg?
11:39 tggmc1 things have changed.
11:39 MadManMarkAu I see a Cprossu
11:39 mashpriborintorg by last tghusday I believe
11:39 MadManMarkAu :D
11:40 MadManMarkAu That long view shifts to the left when the fade completes
11:40 MadManMarkAu I think the genlock is a little out
11:40 mashpriborintorg still things and parts spilled everywhere on the console bench :D
11:41 tggmc1 yeah I need to clean up
11:41 tggmc1 now that stuff is working
11:42 tggmc1 see those are genlocked nicely heh
11:42 MadManMarkAu Wayne's World, Wayne's World, paty time, excellent! Doodelolo... Doodelolo...
11:42 mashpriborintorg it that analog or digital ?
11:42 tggmc1 analog
11:42 tggmc1 !
11:42 MadManMarkAu Niiice
11:43 mashpriborintorg how must have some tricky circuits
11:43 mashpriborintorg nice thing
11:43 tggmc1 it'll do chroma key too
11:44 MadManMarkAu Oh God, I'm in the 70's again!
11:44 tggmc1 this thing has some crazy circuitry
11:44 MadManMarkAu Hell yeah
11:44 MadManMarkAu I feel like I'mw atching Rage again
11:44 MadManMarkAu *watching
11:44 tggmc1 heh
11:45 tggmc1 see I can go all analog cyberpunk
11:45 MadManMarkAu *snerk*
11:45 tggmc1 works very well I think
11:46 tggmc1 lights and levers make me happy when they work.
11:46 MadManMarkAu Need a graphical schematic of how all this equipment is hooked up :P
11:46 MadManMarkAu Hehe, yeah :P
11:46 tggmc1 MadManMarkAu it would break your mind
11:46 MadManMarkAu Prolly
11:46 tggmc1 I don't intend to do it o_o
11:46 tggmc1 that would be a week project
11:47 MadManMarkAu Haha, hell no
11:47 mashpriborintorg my home stereo cables do already give me headaches :D
11:47 MadManMarkAu Not me, either
11:47 tggmc1 even though it only took me 3 days to wire
11:47 tggmc1 1 day for video 1 day for power one day for audio/misc
11:47 Seroster joined #thegeekgroup
11:47 tggmc1 and I still don't understand it all
11:48 tggmc1 sorry 4 days
11:48 tggmc1 did genlock 2x
11:48 tggmc1 coming on 3x
11:48 tggmc1 and then we're redoing the patch panneling too
11:48 tggmc1 so it will actually made sense
11:48 mashpriborintorg and it's nothing, compared to the main control room of a real tv station
11:48 tggmc1 technically if we had some SDI cameras
11:49 tggmc1 we could actually beat a real tv station
11:50 tggmc1 we have 2 mc controllers that would feed into this one, a 32x32 router, and 3 16x4 routers, not to mention our sony video server which also has it's own router
11:50 tggmc1 and a few 20 input matrixes
11:50 tggmc1 so we could literally have 10 streams running easy
11:50 tggmc1 internet connection wouldn't like that though
11:50 mashpriborintorg should be great for the live autopsies
11:51 _ato_ is that man standing on a bus stop or something?
11:51 mashpriborintorg with macrocam, screwdriver cam, Omni cam
11:51 _ato_ or does he just like to hang around there.
11:51 tggmc1 I wish we had the stuff to do wireless well
11:52 Seroster I love the confusion from free energy yuppies! "were not talking about producing current, were talking about producing hydrogen, big difference. The HHO system may be drawing electric power but it shouldn't effect the mpg, think about it, does your car stereo effect your mileage, no. Does you AC, yes but that because its belt driven turning a compressor."
11:52 tggmc1 well I gotta try and figure out what I am doing and appologize to my board for...uh...skipping out on sleep??
11:53 mashpriborintorg I feel like if this morse codes on scanners are going to re-program my brain :D
11:55 tggmc1 I'm gonna go die off somewhere later
11:55 MadManMarkAu m'kay, nini :P
11:56 * mashpriborintorg going to the library
12:01 tonsofpcs BatSteve-Away: today is the olde-tyme geek (read: Broadcast Engineers) meeting, so I won't be trying the flight sim tonightt
12:01 tonsofpcs tggmc1 = cprossu ?
12:01 MadManMarkAu True
12:01 MadManMarkAu But I think he's dead
12:02 MadManMarkAu Also, need recording of that meeting, if possible
12:02 MadManMarkAu It sounds interesting
12:02 tonsofpcs tggmc1: you can beat a real TV station without SDI cameras.  I'll give you access to my slingbox and you can watch tonight and see.
12:02 MadManMarkAu Pardon?
12:03 MadManMarkAu If you were talking to me, then that might be a problem
12:03 * tonsofpcs was talking to whoever was at tggmc1
12:03 MadManMarkAu Ah, kk
12:04 tonsofpcs tggmc1: as-built diagrams are VERY helpful to anyone who needs to fix it in the future.
12:05 MadManMarkAu ^
12:05 tonsofpcs that said, "standard wiring" in cute little charts is better than nothing
12:07 tonsofpcs my ASI routing is about as complex as your video/audio routing and I also have 2 video and 4 audio layers (well, technically 8, but only 3 or 4 devices use the last 4) with a lot more guzintas and comsouttas
12:07 tonsofpcs MadManMarkAu: were you saying that I need to record my SBE meeting?
12:07 MadManMarkAu Ah, the broadcast engineers meeting?
12:07 tonsofpcs yes
12:08 MadManMarkAu It sounds interesting, never seen one
12:08 MadManMarkAu Last time it was helt at TGG they didn't broadcast it
12:08 MadManMarkAu I was sad
12:08 MadManMarkAu I thought it was being held there again
12:09 tonsofpcs idk, my meeting is in upstate NY :)
12:09 tonsofpcs looks like the closest chapter to you is in Saipan, they meet the last friday of each month
12:09 MadManMarkAu That's... outside Australia, isn't it?
12:10 tonsofpcs there's also a ham chapter
12:10 tonsofpcs yes, saipan is in the middle of the pacific
12:10 tonsofpcs http://www.sbe.org/sections/chapter_find.php << last section describes the radio chapters
12:10 MadManMarkAu I know there's a local amature radio ops meeting near me
12:10 MadManMarkAu But I'll look into this
12:11 tonsofpcs we have someone from india who is a member of our chapter
12:11 tonsofpcs (people decide to join, fill out the form, it asks for 'chapter number', they write in the first number that comes to mind....)
12:11 MadManMarkAu lol
12:12 tonsofpcs there's a few people like that in our chapter, he's (at least, we think it's a he) just the furthest.
12:12 tonsofpcs (we're Chapter One)
12:14 tonsofpcs anyway, off to work (and grabbing breakfast somewhere along the way), cya on the flip side  (and no, I'm probably not recording the meeting -- it's open to all though)
12:14 MadManMarkAu Mkay :P

12:51 SparkyProjects and hi :)
12:51 Seroster Heh
12:51 Seroster What about that looping effect?
12:52 SparkyProjects Chris would probably e more interested in doing this though http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7tMuUekYQA
12:52 Seroster Indeed
12:52 Seroster But that one is a hellova project to make, like... The entire MDH for a year or two
12:56 Seroster We got two main gears
12:57 Seroster One moves one cog CW every second
12:57 Seroster The other moves one cog cw, one cog ccw
12:57 Seroster The one that alternates one cog forwards one back is probably what sets the pase

15:39 wannabe1987 sup?
15:39 mashpriborintorg off from work today
15:39 mashpriborintorg and sunny outside
15:39 wannabe1987 cool
15:39 mashpriborintorg perfect day for watching again tgg videos
15:39 wannabe1987 lol
15:39 wannabe1987 perfect day for goin outside :P
15:40 masterofmonks Are you crazy, today is a perfect day to work on my hacker tan.
15:40 mashpriborintorg already went outside 3 times for the dog, it's enough
15:41 mashpriborintorg and angry because of no scrap electronics to pick up in the street
15:41 wannabe1987 lol thats when i go outside too....the dog :P
15:44 mashpriborintorg the days of bulky waste pickup, we do looong walks
15:45 mashpriborintorg but too mane people akready take stuff, nothing left for me :(
15:45 wannabe1987 gotta go earlier :P
15:45 wannabe1987 :(
15:46 mashpriborintorg even, people do almost fight
15:46 wannabe1987 wow
15:46 mashpriborintorg only cardboard and wood is left after
15:47 mashpriborintorg and now it's in theory forbidden to throw electronics this way
15:48 wannabe1987 why?
15:48 mashpriborintorg ecological rules, must bring them to collect points for recycle
15:49 wannabe1987 ahhh
15:50 mashpriborintorg and these recycling collect points are like fort Knox, you can't take anything
15:51 mashpriborintorg even if it's a wonderfull collectible item
15:51 NeWtoz-phone joined #thegeekgroup
15:52 masterofmonks mashpriborintorg: because there's gold in them electronics.
15:52 mashpriborintorg yeah but some of them can have a second like
15:53 mashpriborintorg I guess it's more for marketing issues
15:53 mashpriborintorg than real ecological motivations
15:54 masterofmonks Well no, literally they are after the gold and silver in the electronics, everythign you take out is profit they are loosing.
15:54 masterofmonks And on top of that, they charge the municipality.
15:54 masterofmonks Typically.
15:55 mashpriborintorg sad thing for us tinkerers
15:55 masterofmonks Craigslist?
15:55 masterofmonks Or why not start a barter market.
15:56 mashpriborintorg yeah there are alternative ways
16:02 SparkyProjects1 I would imagine it's because of this http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/business/topics/waste/32084.aspx
16:02 SparkyProjects1 We have recycling centres where you take old stuff like that
16:02 SparkyProjects1 and they are even saying that shops should accept your old equipment when you buy another
16:07 Seroster mashpriborintorg, you CAN get stuff from recykling points.
16:07 TheGeek1024 joined #thegeekgroup
16:07 Seroster If they got a ww2 cannon shell, two kilos of solid brass, you can buy that for double the scrap price.
16:08 SparkyProjects1 Only if the operators are kind enough, rules say they shouldn't, operators get paid whether they scrap it or not, ours are council run
16:08 mashpriborintorg yes, if you are good friend with the keeper guy it is possible of course
16:08 Trebor joined #thegeekgroup
16:08 Seroster I don't know if it works in the US, but scrapdealers are as greedy as the average joe, if they benefit from selling the museum piece to you they will.
16:09 Seroster Here we got both council run and private
16:09 SparkyProjects1 Scrap dealers are different to recyclers (if recylers are council)
16:10 Trebor Heylo All
16:11 mashpriborintorg btw my neighbor has a big  unused old laser printer in her living room...
16:11 SparkyProjects1 Hi  Trebor
16:11 Seroster Scrap dealers buy/get scrap from the public, and then they sell the scrap to the highest bidder, often foundrys and other companies like that
16:12 mashpriborintorg will ask her someday maybe the just can't get rid of it because it's too heavy :p
16:12 Seroster If a foundry thinks brass is worth a buck a per kilo no matter what it is and a collector thinks this piece of brass is worth 2bucks a kilo...
16:12 Seroster Worst case scenario they tell you to go fuck yourself =P
16:12 SparkyProjects1 yeah, scrap dealers and private recyclers need the money to operate, council recycling only need to follow regulations
16:13 mashpriborintorg some of the worthless junk is not really recycled, it is sent do china or ghana
16:13 mashpriborintorg eg inkjet printers
16:13 Seroster And council recykling don't always do =P
16:13 SparkyProjects1 I asked my local one about a microwave, they didn't have any at the time, i got a couple later
16:14 Seroster I was talking to the council recycler down the street, I got 15 microwaves
16:14 Seroster And blew a flat on my dolly
16:14 Seroster xD
16:15 mashpriborintorg and I'm fed up of taking apart consumer stuff now, i need more serious stuff
16:15 Seroster And yes, I am pretty damn proud of getting fifteen microwaves onto a dolly
16:16 SparkyProjects1 I saw a programme on TV years ago, it was a big warehouse building in America, you take your old stuff there and they sort it and put it on  shelves, it was more like a supermarket of second hand stuff, we should have those here
16:16 Seroster You don't?
16:17 mashpriborintorg there are some things of this kind around here, but quite far, will try to check them somedays
16:17 L0C41H05T joined #thegeekgroup
16:17 SparkyProjects1 Nope
16:17 SparkyProjects1 We don't even have any decent electronic shops, so i have to order online

16:19 Seroster O
16:19 Seroster Isnt there one in GR?
16:19 Seroster Like across the street from the lab?
16:19 tggmc1 good morning everyone
16:19 tggmc1 errr
16:20 tggmc1 noon.
16:20 SparkyProjects1 When i was in my teens, there were 'WS Surplus' stores, you could get a lot of ex military stuff, including old circuit boards
16:20 tggmc1 hey all
16:20 tggmc1 SparkyProjects1 load up the stream today?
16:21 SparkyProjects1 Hi tggmc, to your question about quality, before  : it was a great stream, now: more like WOW
16:21 SparkyProjects1 :)
16:21 mashpriborintorg yeah, Sparky, i used to have a such electronics shop until the mid 90's
16:21 mashpriborintorg now they only sale new china crap
16:21 Seroster I didnt know there was such a thing as circuit boards in the 1700s :O
16:22 tggmc1 glad to hear it!
16:22 SparkyProjects1 Oy Seroster, i may be old but i can still give you a clout :P
16:22 tggmc1 I hope we don't have to knock the qual down
16:22 tggmc1 but it may cause some users.....problems
16:22 Seroster That might have ben a great insult, or retaliation to one, but since I have no idea what a clout is... =P
16:23 SparkyProjects1 I'm on a 3mbps connection, no probs for me, and i watch yt as well

16:52 Sgt_Lemming yup, all 4
16:52 Sgt_Lemming wanna know the best bit?
16:53 masterofmonks They were free.
16:53 Sgt_Lemming I pulled them out of a dumpster, behind a hospital
16:55 Sgt_Lemming also got a bunch of server bits
16:55 Sgt_Lemming including some fibre channel cards, one was even PCI-Express
16:55 Sgt_Lemming couple of Xeon cpu'
16:55 Sgt_Lemming and lots of fibre optic cables
16:55 SparkyProjects1 Sounds like you'll be filling that rack up in your hs :)
16:56 mashpriborintorg wow that made you day
16:56 Sgt_Lemming nah, most of this won't be going to the hackerspace
16:56 Sgt_Lemming last thing we need in teh hackerspace is more computer bits :-P
16:56 mashpriborintorg everyday should be like this... err maybe not, wife may not agree
16:57 SparkyProjects1 You could get rid of the wife :P
16:57 SparkyProjects1 :D
16:57 Seroster Sgt_Lemming,
16:57 Seroster The WORST place to go dumpster diving is behind a hospital
16:57 Seroster Found anything fun in the blue bags?
16:57 Sgt_Lemming no blue bags
16:57 mashpriborintorg they are yellow bags here
16:57 Sgt_Lemming they are very VERY strict about biowaste here in australia
16:58 Sgt_Lemming not allowed to put it in publically accessible areas
16:58 Seroster I know ;P
16:58 Sgt_Lemming also, this is for a construction site, behind the hospital, they are tearing down an old office block
16:58 mashpriborintorg but behind an hospital, you may find great stuff
16:58 exor674 and just throwing sexy equiptment out?
16:59 Sgt_Lemming yup exor674
16:59 SparkyProjects1 You wouldn't be able to go into the biowaste dumpstter in the UK if procedures are followed
16:59 SparkyProjects1 plus many hospitals have incinerators
16:59 mashpriborintorg ecg, xray equipment
16:59 exor674 and going into the incinerator is a reallybad idea if you like the idea of being alive
16:59 Sgt_Lemming mashpriborintorg, recently when we went there was a whole heap of clinic stuff
16:59 Sgt_Lemming we were hoping to get an operating theatre light but no such luck
16:59 mashpriborintorg in some countries thay even throw nuclear sources in the common waste :|
17:00 exor674 .... nuclear sources?
17:00 exor674 buhwuh?
17:00 mashpriborintorg it occured in Brazil or so, a harmful cobalt source in a landfill
17:00 masterofmonks mashpriborintorg: You mean americium?
17:00 SparkyProjects1 I've been inside an incinerator, had to change some thermocouples, one was melted and needed some internal persuasion
17:00 mashpriborintorg there are things worse than americium
17:00 exor674 thermocouple... melted...?
17:01 masterofmonks Yes, but it is the most common nuclear source.
17:01 SparkyProjects1 yep, a stainles steel one
17:01 exor674 aren't those thingsnot supposed to melt?
17:01 Sgt_Lemming get anything hot enough and it will melt exor674
17:02 SparkyProjects1 They are not supposed to, unless something goes wrong and the temperature rises
17:02 SparkyProjects1 we normally ran ours at about 900C, but i've known 1200C
17:02 exor674 even humans?
17:02 mashpriborintorg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJaJUtHO4bI
17:02 SparkyProjects1 Our incinerators burned animal watse, including full cow carcases
17:03 mashpriborintorg ^ like Chernobyl, in your hospital
17:05 exor674 shielded... with depleted uranium
17:07 KB3NZQ joined #thegeekgroup
17:10 mashpriborintorg if the machine fails, someone needs to go and make the seends return manually in the machine, with the cranck on the top  :D
17:12 exor674 I wonder who gets to do that
17:12 exor674 probably an intern *g*
17:14 SparkyProjects1 We had an Irradiator that went wrong, the source was still partly exposed, i helped to get a bit of power to the machine to move the source back in
17:14 SparkyProjects1 our guys were monitoring levels all the time
17:14 mashpriborintorg the maintenance of such devices must be very tricky
17:15 SparkyProjects1 Full maintenance (stripdown and repair) is probably done by remote
17:16 mashpriborintorg the manufacturing of such sources also, they are made with small reactors, there is one in Belgium I believe
17:16 mashpriborintorg in a hidden facility
17:19 mashpriborintorg they're autopsying the transmitter cabinet yay
17:20 mashpriborintorg the continuation on something started years ago

17:56 Seroster Noe
17:56 yNos is a crypto'd chat
17:57 Sgt_Lemming there is a much simpler solution to that yNos
17:57 Sgt_Lemming don't reveal any details on chat, that would require crypto to make em secure :-p
17:57 Sgt_Lemming and on that note, night
18:00 SparkyProjects1 Using encrypted chat would draw attention, and someone will decypher it
18:00 SparkyProjects1 Unless you're planning to blow up the world, i don't see why you would want chat encrypted.
18:00 SparkyProjects1 Night Lemming :)

19:00 tlockley what are you editing?
19:01 Druidic_Rifleman Vidsfor aa local business
19:01 Seroster SparkyProjects?
19:01 Seroster I got yet another motor
19:01 Seroster A mixer motor
19:01 SparkyProjects you called ?
19:01 tlockley cool. What are you using to edit?
19:01 Seroster But this one also got its fields in paralell...
19:01 Seroster Could it be so that things with a high starting torque always got their fields in paralell?
19:02 Seroster (washing machines, mixers, drills?)
19:02 SparkyProjects Possibly
19:02 SparkyProjects Is the armature in parallel with the fields too ?
19:02 Seroster No wait
19:03 Seroster Phase - field1 - brush - brush - field - neutral.
19:03 SparkyProjects Series
19:04 Seroster Yes, didnt look at it in depth until just now, when I got it apart =P
19:05 SparkyProjects So, if you leave phase and neutral connected, then bridge the open end of the fields to those supply wires, that should mean all is in phase, then it's just 2 wires from the armature to connect to supply  to get the direction right
19:06 Seroster Yep
19:06 SparkyProjects Should then run on 12 volts dc or more
19:06 Seroster But my gut feeling is that this motor aint got the umph
19:06 Seroster It's a rather tiny one, like 85% of a vac motor
19:07 SparkyProjects If it's a decent mixer, then it should be reasonably powerful, especially if geared
19:08 SparkyProjects Vac motors are built for speed, mixers are built for power
19:08 Seroster It left my table when I started it the first time =P
19:08 Seroster 220w
19:10 SparkyProjects well yeah, my old vac was 900w
19:11 Seroster Yeah.... =P
19:12 Seroster And the washing machine motor that was deemed too skinny was like 1600w

19:17 SparkyProjects That sucks
19:18 SparkyProjects Yep, flow drilling is cool (well very hot actually)
19:18 SparkyProjects I used to do flow drilling in my teens, mostly by accident when i used a blunt drill :D
19:19 tlockley that is very cool
19:19 mashpriborintorg is it possible to find such drills bits anymwhere on the consumer market ?
19:20 tlockley is it all friction based? or does it require power as well?
19:20 SparkyProjects You need the power so it desn't weld itself together
19:20 Seroster Define power tlockley
19:20 Seroster Only from the motor =P
19:20 tlockley something to cause the bit to heat besides friction
19:21 Seroster Nope
19:22 Seroster That is a very ebrasive piece of metal used as a drill
19:22 SparkyProjects I don't think you can get the drills at your local hardware, i even checked an online supplier we used at work, they don't have them either, so i would assume specialist
19:22 SparkyProjects http://www.flowdrill.com/
19:22 Seroster SparkyProjects, It wasnt until I moved out of my parents house and got my own tools I realised that you can drill metal!
19:22 Seroster I tried to drill some sheet metal with my fathers drills
19:22 tlockley okay. I thought it might have been some kind of ceramic or similar as the bit in the youtube was an off white/gray color
19:22 SparkyProjects HAHA, :D
19:22 Seroster Took about an hour per millimeter, and evrything was glowing,.
19:23 mashpriborintorg must be damn expensive
19:23 Seroster tlockley, Might be a ceramic too, I have no idea =P
19:23 SparkyProjects Yeah, i think they might use some sort of ceramic
19:23 tlockley all in all that is very interesting.
19:23 Seroster Depends, mashpriborintorg. I bet a company that makes half a million holes a day would actually benefit from not having to change their drills all the time
19:24 mashpriborintorg sure, but for the individual hobbyist it must be difficult to afford, the website does not give prices it seems
19:25 SparkyProjects Check the flowdrill site ^  says they use tungsten carbide
19:25 Seroster mashpriborintorg, I dont think its overly expensive, probably lasts forever too
19:26 * mashpriborintorg checking for second hand ones on ebay
19:26 Seroster Btw, I love that it allows you to make water tight threads in thin walled pipe, that looks like one of the biggest benefits
19:28 mashpriborintorg yes, it moves the metal instead of removing it
19:28 SparkyProjects Same as a blunt drill :D
19:28 Seroster But it would interrupt flow a bit
19:29 Seroster SparkyProjects, Except for that a blunt drill is smooth and this is rugged
19:30 SparkyProjects And the blunt drill melts too
19:33 Seroster Heh
19:33 Seroster Danish dude died today
19:33 Seroster He made a HHO system
19:34 LinuxH4x0r joined #thegeekgroup
19:34 Seroster Never compress a fuel and an oxidiser together unless you are REALLY fucking sure what you are doing
19:35 tlockley Eh?
19:36 Druidic_Rifleman Sooooooo any one know how the pnumatic nerf ggu project is going?
19:36 yNos joined #thegeekgroup
19:37 Seroster tlockley, you know what HHO is?
19:37 tlockley No, but I assume it is a type of fuel
19:38 Seroster If you send DC into water you split it in a gas
19:38 Seroster H2O, water, becomes two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom
19:38 tlockley Yep, standard water electrolysis
19:38 Seroster Then you can use it in a torch and it's very hot and makes only water vapour
19:38 tlockley Well damn
19:39 Seroster And free energy jackasses want to put HHO generators in their cars, wich is idiotic.
19:39 Seroster But...
19:39 speed_linux hi
19:39 Seroster This genious compressed the gas into a container to reduce it's size
19:40 SparkyProjects There's a comparison chart for flowdrill
19:40 SparkyProjects http://www.whiteint.com.au/Menu/TradeIndustrial/Flowdrill/Cost-BenefitAnalysis.aspx
19:40 Seroster And when dealing with hydrogen+oxygen gas in a pressure vessel you are just asking for problem
19:40 tlockley yah
19:40 Seroster In essence he made a fragmentation grenade.
19:40 Seroster In theory it's safe to compress hydrogen together with oxygen. But...
19:40 tlockley that I believe

19:51 tlockley I see. That is really cool. I will be interested to see the results as I am planning on getting some ssd's soon.
19:51 speed_linux what should i call the site?
19:54 SparkyProjects Solid State Drive ?
19:54 SparkyProjects That leaves it pen for other ssd stuff
19:54 SparkyProjects one or more pages dedicated to install progress, another might be the process you went through etc

20:34 Ponko is there anything happening in Derby you know?
20:34 Rahlon kina bad if they on fire
20:34 tlockley Ponko: it is a work in progress. I only found out about the Mass chapter like last week
20:34 Rahlon not heard about derby
20:34 Ponko oh
20:35 Ponko and well i hope she's FAR from it
20:35 Rahlon nottingham's being hit from sparadic little things here and there
20:35 Ponko i don't wanna lose another kid
20:35 Rahlon like our shopping centre got broken into, several cars dystroyed and stuff
20:36 wannabe1987 i saw the pic of a double decker on fire. o.O
20:36 Rahlon police helicoptors fly over the city, police potroling the streets etc
20:36 Seroster Don't run around like an idiot in the street, get a solid piece of iron and sit in a chair inside your house/apartment door.
20:36 Ponko whats this bloody riot about anyways
20:36 Rahlon not the guy who got shot for sure
20:36 Seroster Dumbfuck pulled gun at cops
20:37 Seroster Cops shot his sorry ass
20:37 Rahlon that was the trigger
20:37 Seroster Grieving family and friends had friendly protest
20:37 tlockley WOW
20:37 tlockley *sarcasm*
20:37 Seroster Bored football fans said "HEY! LETS FUCKING DESTROY SHIT!"
20:37 injektion This happens in America all the time and we don't riot
20:37 tlockley nope, we litigate
20:37 Seroster injektion, Yeah, and that is why america is that fucked up.
20:37 wannabe1987 http://twitpic.com/636qa3  :(
20:38 tlockley dang
20:38 Seroster And the police can't do shit because if they use violence it will only get worse
20:39 Ponko just stupid scum thugs stealing shit
20:39 Rahlon but anyway riots all over the country, I blame the unrest triggered from the cuts more than anything tbh
20:39 Seroster What I would do if I was in charge would be something along the lines of "1, Curfew. Fuck you! 2, If you go looting I'll beat your ass to a fucking pulp.
20:39 Ponko and when was the last riots
20:39 Ponko 1981?
20:39 exor674 I wonder how many people (rioters, or innocents) have been killed or injured during this
20:39 Rahlon earlyer this year
20:39 Ponko no i mean the last HUGE riots
20:40 Seroster Ofcourse people don't care THAT much about a dude getting shot by police
20:40 Rahlon the london riots after the uni fee rise
20:40 Ponko there was riots in Marsh Farm down here but that was just your jeremy kyle scum
20:40 Seroster You should pump tear gas into the fire hydrant system. At 8pm they blow out a cloud of teargas and anyone can riot however much they wont
20:40 Ponko as is the riots currently taking place
20:40 Seroster want*
20:41 wannabe1987 they said they'd use "plastic bullets"
20:41 Rahlon they want to avoid that though
20:41 Ponko get rambo he'll sort it our
20:41 Ponko and chuck norris
20:41 Rahlon as it could insite more anger
20:41 Ponko AND THE TERMINATOR
20:41 Seroster wannabe1987, I'd prefer not getting shot by any bullet.
20:41 Seroster But I'm just strange like that.
20:41 wannabe1987 exactly!
20:41 wannabe1987 i'm sure it'd hurt just as much as a rubber or real bullet
20:42 Seroster Indeed
20:42 Seroster But I'd take a rubber bullet over a lead one.
20:42 wannabe1987 http://jalopnik.com/5829048/dear-london-rioters-please-stop-setting-cars-on-fire
20:42 Rahlon can they still piece the skin?
20:42 Ponko tbh i'd take THIS to a Zombie Appocalypse
20:43 Seroster Rahlon, Define pierce
20:43 wannabe1987 hmmmmm pieces of plastic at fast speeds - sure!
20:43 Seroster http://www.lifeishid.com/PRUBBERBULLET.jpeg Rubber bullet wound. Might be concidered gross to some.
20:43 Rahlon as in get lodged in the body
20:43 Asf joined #thegeekgroup
20:43 Seroster That particular one is just a nasty fucking bruise
20:44 Rahlon or will it just bruise
20:44 Seroster Rahlon, No, they generally don't get lodged.
20:44 Ponko well if i'm timed out you know whats happened
20:44 Seroster This is about the worst a rubber bullet does http://www.theepochtimes.com/news_images/2007-6-6-wound.jpg (content warning)
20:44 masterofmonks http://imgur.com/gallery/zgwSL
20:44 Rahlon so bad but not life threatening
20:45 Seroster Yeah
20:45 Seroster Most people dont need to seek medical advice for it
20:45 Ponko masterofmonks thats pure epic
20:45 Seroster But it hurts like hell
20:45 Ponko and i'm a brit but i respect that
20:46 Rahlon ditto
20:46 Ponko 80 years old
20:46 Ponko like in Red Dwarf
20:46 Rahlon always nice when I think I can smell fire through my window
20:46 Ponko an 80 year old Dad
20:47 Seroster Rahlon, a full metal jacket bullet often goes through you, a hollowpoint goes into you and fucks you up + leaves lead fragments. Rubber bounces off. And makes you cry like a little bitch
20:47 Seroster Ever ben kicked by a donkey?
20:48 masterofmonks I am sure you will tell us all about your failed donkey molestation attempt Seroster.
20:48 Ponko http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QS0q3mGPGg WINNING
20:49 Ponko ok this a little comic relief
20:51 Seroster masterofmonks, During my failed attempts I am doing the kicking.
20:51 masterofmonks Didn't help your case.

22:36 speed_linux oh
22:36 speed_linux i didnt know about speed metal

22:48 wannabe1987 http://www.woodtv.com/dpp/news/local/sw_mich/meth-lab-found-in-hole-near-home  its in a hole?

22:48 Ponko i cant AFFORD TO INSURE YET ALONE DRIVE THE DAMN THING
22:48 wannabe1987 shhhhh ok
22:48 Ponko sorry
22:48 Ponko well its not that
22:49 ArmaLiteMonster poor ponko is sad ponko :(
22:49 Ponko its the arguement about how there is no justice
22:49 Seroster SparkyProjects?
22:49 Seroster Want some fun thinking? =P
22:49 wannabe1987 no justice for what?
22:49 SparkyProjects What Seroster ?
22:50 Seroster My ballast bank
22:50 SparkyProjects What about it ?
22:50 masterofmonks For the +v tonight. " What is currently the largest star known to mankind, and what kind of star is it?"
22:51 SparkyProjects The Death Star from Star wars :P
22:51 Ponko well basically my brother is severly handicapped and he is on MEDIUM disability allowance and there's some lazy arse DOUCHEBAG scumer who is on a HIGHER RATE
22:51 wannabe1987 SparkyProjects wins
22:51 wannabe1987 my + went away
22:51 ArmaLiteMonster lol
22:51 Seroster I got a few ballasts (125, 125, 70, 40, 40, 36, 30, 20 watts) They all got two leads (since they are resistors in essence) - I got them all hooked to a common neutral, and I use a switch that is either open or closed between the ballast and my power outlet.
22:51 wannabe1987 damn Ponko that sucks
22:51 Seroster Problem is I get a leak current of say 40 volts AC
22:52 Seroster And I want to get rid of that, and I wonder how I should do that best
22:52 Ponko and people who beat there kids are ALLOWED TO KEEP THEM and the ones who would do ANYTHING to help there kids are LOSING THERES
22:52 Ponko where the fuck is the justice in that
22:52 Seroster Ponko, Life aint just.
22:52 wannabe1987 masterofmonks VY canis majoris, hypergiant
22:53 ArmaLiteMonster ...
22:53 masterofmonks wannabe1987: I am looking for a color descriptor.
22:53 wannabe1987 red hypergiant
22:53 Seroster SparkyProjects, so I got a fair ammount of ferrite rings that are supposed to go on cords and such,
22:53 ArmaLiteMonster canis majoris?  they have a star literally named "big dog"?
22:53 SparkyProjects Seroster, diagram please, show where you get leakage
22:53 CaptainNiobe governments around the world are screwed up in cases like that ponko... my ex's mother couldn't get a job because she has epilepsy, yet the american government completely refused to put her on a pension...
22:53 Seroster Coild I get rid of the leak current by letting each wire go through a ferrite core together with a ground lead?
22:53 masterofmonks ArmaLiteMonster: For perspective http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sun_and_VY_Canis_Majoris.svg
22:54 ArmaLiteMonster dang.  that's big.
22:54 Seroster SparkyProjects, The problem is that my latest one was not properly documented and is currently being rebuilt, heh =P
22:54 Ponko yep things like that really grind my gears CaptainNiobe
22:54 Seroster SparkyProjects,  I'll draw you a nice pretty diagram, in a bit
22:54 CaptainNiobe you aren't the only one, Ponko :)
22:54 Seroster I've got a woman to tend to.
22:55 Ponko i know that but its not the point i'm making
22:55 SparkyProjects Ponko, if you know this for sure, report him
22:56 Ponko noo i'm just saying that there are people like that getting away with it
22:56 masterofmonks Ponko: Unfortunately this channel is not a platform for political comentary. If you would like to continue this discourse, Might I suggest #tgg_nsfw
22:56 CaptainNiobe i know... might i suggest getting professional medical diagnosis for him, perhaps from several doctors, and try social security again for your brother?
22:56 Ponko ok i'm sorry just upsets me
23:00 speed_linux SparkyProjects, how about now?
23:02 wannabe1987 CaptainNiobe he says theres been a diagnosis.  and its not even a political arguement
23:02 SparkyProjects speed, your site ?
23:02 SparkyProjects Yeah it's fine for me

23:02 ArmaLiteMonster i had no idea.
23:03 wannabe1987 no, fb chat

23:03 wannabe1987 ArmaLiteMonster yeah....

23:04 wannabe1987 i know, i'm briliant
23:04 ArmaLiteMonster i just didn't know it was there.
23:04 masterofmonks And things that are generally perpendicular to the topic of the channel.
23:05 wannabe1987 the topic is?
23:05 speed_linux ive vissited that channel a few times, dont like it
23:05 masterofmonks Generally science and technology.
23:05 ArmaLiteMonster is there anyone even there?
23:06 masterofmonks ArmaLiteMonster: One way to find out.
23:06 ArmaLiteMonster yes, yes there is.
23:06 wannabe1987 4 people.  wahoo

23:20 SparkyProjects ok, i'll send PM
23:20 masterofmonks injektion: I would tell you but... hang on I have a book for that.
23:22 BotSteve In the last hour, there have been 1 new posts on the Geek Group forums.  New posts made by: randommscience117 on Capacitors in Series
23:23 masterofmonks injektion: I can't find a damn thing on it.
23:26 injektion I'm trying to figure out why "shock plus" is corrosive
23:26 injektion Chlorine isn't corrosive on its own
23:27 masterofmonks Ah, because it is.
23:27 SparkyProjects1 joined #thegeekgroup
23:28 masterofmonks Your shock is generally a hypochlorite solution.
23:28 injektion It's dichlor :|
23:28 masterofmonks Which has a PH around 11 or so depending on the concentration.
23:28 SparkyProjects1 Am i still connected ?
23:28 SparkyProjects1 hmm
23:29 masterofmonks SparkyProjects: One of you is.
23:29 SparkyProjects1 did that post as with the 1 added ?
23:29 injektion So 11 is considered a strong base which are corrosive right?
23:29 masterofmonks SparkyProjects: To reclaim your nick you can use the command /msg nickserv ghost nick password
23:29 eadthem joined #thegeekgroup
23:29 masterofmonks injektion: yes.
23:30 speed_linux SparkyProjects, SparkyProjects1  which one is real?
23:30 masterofmonks Or you can wait until it times out.
23:30 speed_linux oh ok
23:31 masterofmonks injektion: Figure this. PH 7 is neutral, and anything more than two points beyond that you need to start keeping an eye on for causing corrosion.

23:31 BotSteve lwq1996: I have the following messages for you:
23:31 BotSteve At 14:40Z, wannabe1987 asked me to tell lwq1996 that i fell asleep on the computer last night
23:32 lwq1996 lol
23:32 lwq1996 nice wannabe
23:33 lwq1996 can someone tell me why facebook isnt uploading videos and photos right
23:33 wannabe1987 yeah....woke up at like 5 to a REALLY HOT COMPUTER on my lap
23:33 injektion masterofmonks, ok
23:33 wannabe1987 so i put it into standby and fell asleep
23:33 injektion So I take it as well anything ending in -sulfate is acidic
23:33 injektion Potassium peroxymonosulfate
23:34 lwq1996 grrr....fucking facebook
23:35 lwq1996 anyone know a good desktop uploader for facebook
23:35 masterofmonks http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium_peroxymonosulfate
23:40 Seroster masterofmonks, as for your earlier question I stumbled upon it.
23:40 ArmaLiteMonster i smell chicken.
23:40 lwq1996 KATEMONSTER
23:40 ArmaLiteMonster LIQUID
23:40 ArmaLiteMonster METAL GEAR!?
23:40 lwq1996 what?
23:41 lwq1996 sorry dont play that game
23:41 ArmaLiteMonster nothing.
23:41 ArmaLiteMonster you need to.
23:41 Seroster Hey masterofmonks, Great argument here!: "However since you keep bringing it up, ill prove to you perpetual motion exists....ready retard? you sure? pay attention now? Planets moving in orbit is perpetual motion. Now, go back to mommys basement and play with yourself."
23:41 Seroster Ah. Planetary orbits is prepetual motion
23:42 ArmaLiteMonster wait did someone seriously say that
23:42 Seroster Yes.
23:43 Seroster Do you want a link?
23:43 ArmaLiteMonster no thanks.  i have a high enough risk of brain cancer as it is.
23:43 * lwq1996 is going to kill mark zuckerburg
23:43 Seroster Giving it to you anyway: http://www.youtube.com/all_comments?v=ydEkV-E0mP8
23:43 ArmaLiteMonster angry teen is angry
23:44 Seroster And he called ME a retard before launching that one =P
23:45 ArmaLiteMonster ah, i think dinner is ready.  bbl.
23:46 wannabe1987 lol ok
23:50 masterofmonks Stupid argument.
23:51 masterofmonks The perpetual motion people are really ruining what could be perfectly good research into alternative fuel sources.
23:52 astro73|derrial they ruin everything
23:52 astro73|derrial they're like conspiracy theorists
23:52 masterofmonks Do I think that HHO is the end all be all of fuel sources? Hell no. But if you have a source of electricity, and no vapor type fuel, you could do a lot worse than HHO for running a vehicle.
23:54 injektion If I use muratic acid to destroy some hard drives and it gets onto the ground will anything ever grow there again?
23:54 masterofmonks Granted you would need to generate it while traveling, but a combination of PV and battery power should keep your energy losses low enough.
23:54 masterofmonks injektion: yes.
23:54 injektion So it's not that bad?
23:55 masterofmonks Didn't say that.
23:55 masterofmonks It will most certainly kill what ever vegitation is there currently.
23:55 masterofmonks But come the next heavy rainstorm it should be diluted enough that it is no longer kiilling anything.
23:59 Seroster Hrm
23:59 * speed_linux pokes Seroster
