00:00 masterofmonks The only thing he could really do, and that would only be for spite because he wouldn't get anything out of it. Is to notify the EPA, who would likely laugh at him and fine the company a quarter million dollars which after negotiation would be about ten grand.
00:00 SparkyProjects Most cyclones are driven by an electric motor, but it's possible it has some sort of banging mechanism to shake the dust to the bottom
00:01 brousch joined #thegeekgroup
00:01 masterofmonks SparkyProjects: What do you know about microcontrollers?
00:01 injektion Can I report them to the EPA anonymously
00:01 SparkyProjects No aa lot, i knw the basics of how they work, but not how to program them
00:02 masterofmonks Ah.
00:02 masterofmonks trying to figure out which one of these is better.
00:02 masterofmonks injektion: technically yes.
00:02 masterofmonks In reality, 50% chance.
00:02 injektion How do I do it
00:03 SparkyProjects Nearest i got were industrial cotrols with embedded controllers.
00:03 masterofmonks https://estore.ti.com/Search.aspx?k=chronos
00:03 injektion bbl
00:04 SparkyProjects Watches ?
00:04 SparkyProjects And they look the same
00:05 masterofmonks They have a programable microcontroller in them.
00:05 masterofmonks Except that they have different model numbers...
00:06 SparkyProjects ah, i see that now, i just saw the ez430 and thought that was model no
00:06 masterofmonks Ah!
00:07 masterofmonks Taht is the frequency in MHz
00:08 masterofmonks http://bit.ly/qiYhrb
00:09 masterofmonks "The 868-MHz Access Point has a 0Ω resistor next to the antenna and the 915-MHz version does not."
00:10 masterofmonks Now my electrical engineering knowledge may be incomplete, but wouldn't a 0 ohm resistor be the same as no resistor?
00:11 SparkyProjects Basically a piece of wire with a 0 ohm measurement :P
00:11 masterofmonks I mean... Why?
00:12 masterofmonks Must. Stop. Listening. to. Eben. Brooks.
00:15 SparkyProjects under 'more info' there's a features chart
00:15 SparkyProjects RF Operating Frequency ----- 433 MHz ----- 868 MHz -------- 915 MHz
00:15 SparkyProjects Acceptable Operating Region ------ Acceptable worldwide ------ Europe and India ------- N. & S. America
00:15 SparkyProjects ^supposed to be a chart ^  :P
00:15 SparkyProjects 433 or 915 would be best
00:16 SparkyProjects Are the only differences the freq's ?
00:16 masterofmonks According to the wiki, yes.
00:17 SparkyProjects Then it looks like you have to decide if you're ever going to travel with it outside America
00:18 masterofmonks Likely not.
00:18 masterofmonks Since it will likely get me arrested crossing a border.
00:19 masterofmonks Bought the 915 version.
00:19 masterofmonks For a grand total os 24.50
00:19 masterofmonks http://tideals.com/
00:20 SparkyProjects :)
00:21 masterofmonks Combine that with the msp430 I already have...

11:08 MadManMarkAu Question: Regarding the voting thing on the latest Captain's blog, I'm wondering if I should run a script to repeatedly vote...
11:10 Sgt_Lemming game it
11:12 MadManMarkAu game it?
11:15 Sgt_Lemming as in point out how much of a game it is
11:15 Sgt_Lemming because it's too easy to cheat
11:16 MadManMarkAu I don't get it, how is it a game?
11:16 MadManMarkAu And I assume you're saying cheating on this is wrong, so I'll take that as a "no"
11:16 Sgt_Lemming sigh
11:17 Sgt_Lemming it's proving that the survey can be made into a game, because it's too easy to sway it to one side or the other
11:17 Sgt_Lemming so it becomes a game to see who can get the most stupidly high vote on one side
11:17 Sgt_Lemming hence "Game it"
11:18 MadManMarkAu Ah

15:59 tlockley well then the hum must be here… bu WHERE
16:00 SparkyProjects Got headphones ?
16:00 tlockley Thats what I use. There seems to be hum getting into my Audio IF
16:03 SparkyProjects Well i just plugged my headphones in, and can just about hear hum behind  the very faint hiss, but i had to listen hard
16:04 SparkyProjects Are you plugging the headphones directly into the comp ?
16:04 tlockley No, I juse an external interface over Firewire
16:05 tlockley PreSonus FireStudio PRO
16:08 Seroster Ohai SparkyProjects
16:09 SparkyProjects Hi Seroster :)
16:10 SparkyProjects tlockley, will the presonus work if you unplug firewire ?
16:10 SparkyProjects Just to see where the hum originates
16:10 tlockley no, it has an external powersource, but it saves energy by not running the IF without a computer
16:11 tlockley I just need to find a ground lift

19:00 Seroster SparkyProjects, I follow a few safety rules, like "Fire extinguisher handy" and "Only poke with at least 5 feet of pole"
19:00 Seroster And I am talking about inlaws, not electronics ;D
19:00 SparkyProjects *Insulated pole :P
19:01 yNos not a piece of conduit?
19:01 Seroster ...No... Not my mother in law. =P
19:01 SparkyProjects If it's plastic conduit, yeah :D
19:01 Seroster The voltages I deal with don't require more than wood insulator.
19:02 Seroster Fuck yeah, poke with metal conduit! =D
19:02 roadran422 haha
19:02 SparkyProjects Wet wood :P
19:02 yNos mothers in-law and wet wood
19:02 yNos not sure about that family.
19:03 yNos alrite
19:03 roadran422 Hahaha
19:03 yNos off to tgg
19:03 yNos later everyone
19:03 Seroster SparkyProjects, Hm. Wouldnt a perfect hot stick for 10kv be like Pokey end, 2ft of insulated, two inches of aluminium tape+ground wire, 3ft of insulation?
19:03 Seroster So if you poke something that is like 250kv the spark jumps to ground instead of via you
19:03 Seroster And you are still a good way away from the ground
19:03 SparkyProjects Seroster probably takes great pleasure in poking his mother-in-law :x
19:03 Seroster You wouldnt even imagine

19:59 mikemol Hey, those of you in the GRR area, don't forget that BarcampGR 2011 is this weekend.
20:04 injektion joined #thegeekgroup
20:06 wannabe1987 barcamp?
20:06 [Python] joined #thegeekgroup
20:06 wannabe1987 i'll be up north, but mikemol what is barcampgr?
20:07 mikemol http://pastebin.com/atB6HQ7n
20:08 mikemol That's got all the juicy detail in it.
20:08 wannabe1987 is it too hard to give a description w/o a link?
20:08 wannabe1987 computer/browser is running slow...
20:08 mikemol My SSH session to this IRC client's also running slow. It's lagging about twenty characters behind my typing.
20:09 wannabe1987 sounds like my browser...
20:09 mikemol But, in brief, Barcamp is an unconference. The topic is what you make of it. You show up, talk about what you want to talk about, listen to what you want to listen about. There's free admission, food and (if you're old enough) beer.
20:10 mikemol That latter is sponsored by a local bar. Friday evening, we pack into a bus or a number of cars, go over to the bar. Then we come back.
20:35 wannabe1987 mikemol that sounds fun
20:38 * wannabe1987 saw an old man smoking and using oxygen at the same time...
20:39 injektion lol
20:40 wannabe1987 i was waiting for him to go BOOM
20:40 tlockley oxygen is only an oxidizer. It can't explode on its own
20:41 wannabe1987 then why do you put "no smoking" signs on rooms in nursing homes that have people on o2 in them?
20:42 wannabe1987 .c 20c to f
20:42 BotSteve 68 degrees Fahrenheit
20:43 tlockley beacause as a powerful oxidizer, it can enhance any open flames, potentially causing an explosion
20:44 wannabe1987 ahhh
20:45 injektion I'm surprised they have smoking areas at work
20:50 injektion Especially with all of the oxidizers there lol

22:28 tonsofpcs tlockley: do people really know everyone on nantucket?
22:28 Cprossu while I was gone
22:28 tlockley just about
22:28 tonsofpcs tlockley: Lou Borelli
22:28 speedrunnerG55 joined #thegeekgroup
22:29 tlockley dont know the name. Might know where he works tho
22:29 tonsofpcs he works in "retired" and spends most of his time on his boat, afaik
22:30 tlockley huh. I haven't met him yet but if he has a computer I will probably get a call eventually?
22:30 tlockley oops missed a key
22:30 Cprossu oooh I got a few good ones for you to think about tlockley. next step we got on our analog master control system (a Phillips Saturn) is to try and control a GVG 20-ten matrix with it, then after that we wish to use the MPK bus on the saturn to be able to push controls out via a web interface with a normal PC.
22:31 Cprossu astro is currently working on the mpk signaling, and producerbill has been informed about as much as I know about the damn thing
22:31 speedrunnerG55 >_>
22:31 tonsofpcs tlockley: why would you get a call?
22:32 tlockley I work as a computer repair man
22:32 tlockley Cprossu: that sounds very cool. I really need to do some research on these surfaces
22:33 tonsofpcs tlockley: why would I call you if I know how to fix it myself?
22:33 Cprossu AVP-3500 is the router and MCC-3500A/D is the surface
22:33 speed_linux joined #thegeekgroup
22:33 Cprossu both fall under the 'saturn' name
22:33 tonsofpcs lets see the boat name....
22:34 tonsofpcs Cprossu: leave the planets out of this :-p
22:34 * speedrunnerG55 goes to do his labs BBL
22:34 tlockley you might not, but I get calls from people all the time who have regular people that arent arround to help
22:34 Cprossu we do not have any analog audio gear with the saturn branding but we do have a digital frame (dvp-3500)
22:34 Cprossu all of these suckers are setup by the 'jupiter network suite' which normally runs jupiter mainframes/matrices
22:34 tonsofpcs Cprossu: does the digital audio frame have BNC or XLR or +/- inputs?
22:34 Cprossu it's a digital everything frame
22:35 tlockley Aes/EUB
22:35 Cprossu and it has screw terminals for the audio
22:35 Cprossu AES iirc
22:35 tlockley or was it ebu
22:35 tonsofpcs AES/EBU is the old name for AES3
22:35 tlockley ok
22:35 Cprossu fair enough.
22:35 tonsofpcs but AES3 can be put balanced or AES3id for unbalanced
22:35 tonsofpcs the balanced _might_ be able to handle analog audio IF it does not reclock.
22:35 tlockley I come from a live audio background so i have a little experience with digital audio
22:36 tonsofpcs tlockley: I'm looking at possibly buying a Presonus 24.4.2 ;)
22:36 tlockley ooooooooooooooh
22:36 * tonsofpcs is the crazy 20-something broadcast engineer
22:36 tlockley i got to use their 16.4.2 for a theater gig
22:36 tlockley it is one hellova board
22:36 tonsofpcs I spent 3 days poking at the wheatstone
22:37 tlockley that thing must be so well built
22:37 tonsofpcs yea, I threw it in the 'running' for this project just because it was in the price range, but it seems to be the best fit for everything we looked at
22:37 tlockley I once did a concert monitor mix with a mida vienna 48
22:37 tlockley *midas
22:37 tonsofpcs 10 auxes + internal FX + FX on every channel + send FX + METERS FOR GROUPS!!!
22:38 tlockley and dont forget it is a 24x24 fw audio interface
22:38 tonsofpcs but no motorized faders :(
22:38 tlockley I actually just bought one of their FireStudio units. It is fantastic
22:38 tlockley yah that is a bit of a bummer
22:38 tonsofpcs also, I want a madi card for my Wheatnet system for input to a DAW.
22:39 tlockley that would be nice. Remind me what MADI is again...
22:40 Cprossu I've gotta start some games so I can blow the heads off of rendered people
22:40 Cprossu shitttt.... steam updates (!)
22:40 tlockley also, this is the midas i got to play with http://www.midasconsoles.com/images/content​/products/product_shots/siena/siena-top.jpg
22:41 tlockley 48 channels of the most amazing sounding audio
22:41 Cprossu wow that's a hell of a board
22:41 tonsofpcs MADI is 52/64 channels (48/44.1) over a BNC.
22:41 tlockley Cprossu: what is your stam username? mine is thatsyouremail

22:42 tlockley i used to have a 6 dig
22:42 Cprossu I missed the launch of non-beta steam by 1 hour
22:42 tonsofpcs MADI is like a T1 for linear PCM
22:42 tlockley wow
22:42 tlockley ok
22:43 Cprossu steam was such a pile of shit after all
22:43 tonsofpcs (ok, closer to a DS3, but you get the idea)
22:43 Cprossu (misses WoN)
22:43 tonsofpcs (misses KALI)
22:43 tlockley tonsofpcs: are you a audio engineer by trade?

22:46 wannabe1987 its so yummy
22:46 tonsofpcs tlockley: I feel like that midas sienna has too many knobs, yet too few aux sends.
22:47 tlockley its a 16 send console
22:47 tonsofpcs (1-16, all pre/post selectable?)
22:47 tlockley iirc they should be
22:47 tlockley if not all atlest one half
22:47 tonsofpcs also, I need to find a good source for XLR and/or BNC lamps for boards....
22:48 tonsofpcs interesting knobbing on the EQ section
22:49 tlockley yah, the parametric is very good onthem though
22:49 tlockley plus i had a stack of mias's parent companky klark-techinc's analog eqs
22:49 * tonsofpcs has a Wheatstone D9 @ work
22:50 tonsofpcs you're working FoH, unless you have major feedback issues, 4 band parametric is plenty.
22:50 tlockley i was doing monitor mix
22:50 eadthem joined #thegeekgroup
22:51 tonsofpcs even moreso then.
22:51 tlockley we had a 48 channel ISO snake with MAAS connectors
22:51 tonsofpcs I have a 24 + 8 w/ WIRP3 connectors
22:51 tonsofpcs brand new in april :D
22:51 tonsofpcs err, W3IRP
22:52 tlockley oooh what a pretty console
22:52 tonsofpcs right now, FoH is being done on two bound mackies in house, broadcast is done on the D9, monitors are done on a case-by-case basis (the 8 are paralleled)
22:53 tlockley neat
22:53 tonsofpcs if we get the presonus, it'll take over FoH and monitors (I hope)
22:53 eadthem http://youtube-global.blogspot.com/2​011/08/augusts-on-rise-nominees.html
22:53 tlockley cool
22:53 eadthem gonna need a lot more votes
22:53 eadthem comming last place atm  at 373   first place has 2487
22:54 tonsofpcs (by "bound mackies", I mean subs feeding stereo in to feed subs to bind the subs, main assign on board 2, Aux 1 from each sent to external reverb, brought back in on 2 exts)
22:54 tlockley yah, done that before
22:55 tlockley man i want to do live sound again
22:56 tonsofpcs well, if the verizon deal falls through, there's going to be a ton of CWA workers looking for work...
22:57 tlockley yah, there are some ibew people here doing their thing
22:57 tonsofpcs yea, CWA and IBEW I guess
22:58 tonsofpcs It's not clear if the CWA/IBEW folks are repair/maint, front office, local shop 'support', or what
22:58 tlockley i believe it is a mix
22:58 tonsofpcs I would expect the former, possibly the latter, not sure about the middle.
22:58 tlockley i know that here the IBEW are the pole climbers
22:59 tonsofpcs We had like 20 working the local VZW store picket.
22:59 tlockley huh
22:59 tlockley I though this was about their wireline division
22:59 tonsofpcs me too...
22:59 tonsofpcs but who the heck is going to picket a CO?
23:00 tlockley dunno
23:00 tlockley btw, what do you think of the Google/Motorola Mobility acquisition
23:01 masterofmonks It is goign to lead to cheaper ad subsidized hardware.
23:02 tlockley frankly i just hope it finally kills of motoblur
23:02 tlockley *off
23:02 clony101 joined #thegeekgroup
23:02 tlockley though i really like the webtop idea
23:03 tlockley its just too stupid friendly
23:04 Cprossu tlockley I think we all as geeks want motoblur..dead as a doornail
23:04 tonsofpcs tlockley: it seems like they're buying for patents, gonna turn around and resell.
23:04 tlockley its only useful function is the inbuilt gps tracking find my phone ting
23:05 tlockley tonsofpcs: I really hope that isnt true, but i wouldnt be suprised
23:05 clony101 hello people
23:05 tlockley this whole IP war is such BS
23:05 tlockley hey clony101
23:06 tonsofpcs tlockley: well, they were very clear that the reason they were buying them was IP
23:06 wannabe1987 hi lee
23:06 tonsofpcs really, certain patents that prevented them from doing certain things
23:07 wannabe1987 lol star wars reference in SGA
23:07 tonsofpcs Lone Star!!!!!!
23:07 tlockley well, buying MMI does put them in the position to do some work in the cable box market
23:09 tonsofpcs they already have.
23:09 tonsofpcs also, how does MMI deal with QAM?
23:09 tonsofpcs I mean, yea, they do COFDM....
23:11 tlockley I was under the impression that Comcast was using scrambled QAM for their digital cable service
23:11 tlockley though I really am no expert there
23:11 tlockley what I do know is that MMI is the largest provider of cable equipment to Comcast, TWC, and the like
23:12 tlockley for example, my cable box and DTAs are all MOTO made
23:12 tonsofpcs probably, but that's not MMI
23:13 tlockley I was under the impression that MMI was both wireless and coax
23:13 tonsofpcs it's the mobile device division...
23:14 tonsofpcs I wouldn't expect CPE there.
23:15 tlockley acording to their website MMI is both mobile devices and home equipment
23:16 tonsofpcs link?
23:16 tlockley motorola.com
23:16 tonsofpcs direct link to mmi info?
23:17 * tonsofpcs is on cellular interwebs
23:17 tonsofpcs (much better than hotel wifi, at least)
23:17 tlockley oh, lemme do more digging
23:18 tlockley http://www.nyse.com/about/listed/mmi.html
23:19 kellyEv joined #thegeekgroup
23:19 tonsofpcs it seems almost as if moto dumped mmi because it was operating at a loss and they knew they could sell the IP
23:19 tlockley pretty much yah
23:19 tlockley except that moto has regained some ground with Android
23:19 tlockley I personally find them to make excelent hardware. their programmers just tend to get in the way sometimes
23:20 tonsofpcs interesting....
23:20 tonsofpcs well, yea, they have great hardware/chip design engineers
23:20 * tonsofpcs has a few m68k based machines
23:20 tlockley heh
23:20 tonsofpcs the m68030 could outperform a P4 on certain math functions!
23:20 tlockley lolz
23:21 tlockley not suprised
23:21 tonsofpcs how many years in betwween there? seriously...
23:21 tonsofpcs (RISC / CISC, I know)
23:21 tlockley I remember when the p4 came out and people werent putting good fans on them and they blew up
23:21 * tonsofpcs had the infamous 'blows up at tradeshows' dell notebook
23:22 tlockley repaired many of those
23:22 tonsofpcs it's not clear from that listing if the wireline/cable stuff is from Moto or if it's what they acquired from sunup
23:22 tlockley my personal favorite was the Inspiron 5200
23:22 tlockley i can still take one down to screws with my eyes closed
23:22 tonsofpcs 5100 I think is what I had...
23:22 tlockley those too
23:23 tlockley dell used to just hand out hero kits for them
23:24 tonsofpcs i have an 6400/e1505 now (with a display and graphics card that weren't sold on t hat model) which replaced the 4-failure 51.0 (5150 i think.)
23:24 tlockley heh
23:24 tonsofpcs the gfx card on it has died though (cap failure, hsync isn't proper) -- it's my 'servetr' (read: ssh host w/ screen + irssi )
23:24 tlockley I currently have a ThinkPad X201 and a late '08 MBP
23:25 tonsofpcs I'm on an HP Mini 10 (loaded) right now
23:25 tlockley nice
23:25 tonsofpcs I have an EeePC 900A in the bag >> and one attached to a multisync monitor at home to remote to the HTPC
23:25 tlockley very cool
23:25 tonsofpcs (HTPC is a quad core dell - inspiron 530?)
23:26 tlockley for the most part I just use my xbox as a media machine
23:26 tlockley on the mac there is an awsome media server called connect360
23:26 tlockley it is basically an xbox optimised version of VLC
23:26 tonsofpcs I have the sony BDP-N460? (360 maybe? one of those) for netflix, the PC is for graphics work, it also has Media Composer 5 on it
23:27 tlockley media composer?
23:28 tlockley oh, avid
23:29 Toastdude joined #thegeekgroup
23:29 tlockley i was always under the impression that their video software basically required all AVID only stuff
23:31 Toastdude Hi
23:31 tlockley hey Toastdude
23:32 Toastdude Whats up?
23:33 tlockley just babling about random stuff
23:33 Toastdude Okay, so a normal day for the irc ;)

23:35 BotSteve Toastdude: I last saw wannabe1987 0.47 hours ago at 2011-08-18 23:07:05 UTC on #thegeekgroup.  Current time: 23:35:25 UTC
23:38 tonsofpcs tlockley: Nvidia GT card added for that.
23:38 tlockley Nice

23:38 wannabe1987 hi Toastdude
23:38 Toastdude Hi wannabe1987 !

23:39 Toastdude What is his reasoning for this? Lol
23:41 wannabe1987 i'm back...and i was allowed in there for a second :P
23:41 wannabe1987 Toastdude what do you think is the reasoning for a male to be locked in his bedroom?!
23:42 Toastdude ...
23:42 Cprossu man it's bad when you have a 10gb update heh
23:42 tlockley ouch
23:42 Toastdude Cprossu: !!!
23:42 Cprossu I am finally going for my chinese food soon though
23:42 Cprossu *happy*!
23:42 Toastdude Hi!!
23:43 tlockley Cprossu, does your ISP meter used bandwidth
23:43 Toastdude Yay Chinese
23:43 Cprossu no way thankfully
23:43 tlockley damn
23:43 tlockley i friggin hate Comcast
23:43 Cprossu although cox 'technically' monitors bw, they don't
23:43 tlockley I need to get a TID and just get a busisness account
23:44 mantere joined #thegeekgroup
23:44 masterofmonks tlockley: find a little quasi-local ISP, generally those don't give a damn what you do with your bandwith.
23:44 Toastdude Hi mantere
23:44 Toastdude Hi masterofmonks
23:44 tlockley masterofmonks: not really possible here. the only local ISP is a dialup provider
23:45 masterofmonks Not even DSL?
23:45 tlockley they did once
23:45 masterofmonks Ah.
23:45 tlockley it was way crappy
23:45 masterofmonks My ISP doesn't offer the greatest speed, but it is reliable as hell.
23:46 tlockley speed is not really the issue for me. i just want consistency
23:46 masterofmonks The alternative is Comcast, and Wildblue.
23:46 tlockley ewwwww widlblue
23:48 tlockley the only thing worse has got to be hughesnet
23:51 Cprossu their pricing is... out of this world, just like their routing table!
23:51 tlockley yup
23:52 masterofmonks It's the physical constants that turn me off.
23:52 tlockley and all that ionizing radiation
23:53 masterofmonks Er...
23:53 Toastdude Ionizing radiation?
23:53 tlockley i distictly remember seing a radiation warning on the hugesnet dish i recetly decomissioned
23:54 Toastdude D:
23:54 Toastdude That's not dangerous at all...
23:54 tlockley yep. :P
23:54 masterofmonks tlockley: only if you are orally servicing the emmiter while it is broadcasting.
23:54 tlockley true. but 200MB per month. Really?!
23:55 Cprossu lol. that's pretty funny
23:55 tlockley same limit as the 15$/mo ATT data plan
23:55 Cprossu I damn near bought one of their tranceivers just to take apart
23:55 wannabe1987 what kind of cell phone can you not use while its charging?  thats stupid
23:55 Cprossu yay goodwill
23:56 Cprossu there are several around wannabe1987, and yes it's stupid.
23:56 masterofmonks I want to make a long range high gain directional WI-FI antenna using an eighteen inch dish.
23:57 Cprossu do-able
23:57 Cprossu when yNos|Away gets back he's the guy to ask.
23:57 masterofmonks I know.
23:57 masterofmonks Using a biquad for the emitter, and adjusting the angle and arm lenth.
23:57 Cprossu he can build a 2M antenna from a stack of wrigglys gum wrappers
23:57 masterofmonks The main issue is laziness.
23:57 Cprossu I'm convinced of it
23:58 Cprossu chinese food beckons
23:58 Cprossu bbl.
23:58 tlockley away with ye
