03:11 Sgt_Lemming Be so glad when I can get rid of this server
03:11 SparkyProjects Lee, it looks like that guy's house has a bad earth, Earth and Neutral are basically the same in the UK
03:11 Sgt_Lemming cause fuck it's a noisy beast
03:11 Sgt_Lemming SparkyProjects, tied at the junction box?
03:12 SparkyProjects Normally tied at the nearest substation, but there's also a system that the neutral is bonded at the incoming
03:12 Sgt_Lemming yeah
03:12 Sgt_Lemming same here
03:12 Sgt_Lemming and it's tied on the power poles here as well
03:13 lwq1996 joined #thegeekgroup
03:13 Sgt_Lemming I think every 2nd or 3rd pole has neutral tied to ground, and a BIG grounding strap running down the pole
03:13 Toastdude Wb lwq1996
03:13 lwq1996 hello again...luckily i use win7 and it says when i restart and shutdown
03:13 SparkyProjects And the reason the voltage changes when he puts a load on it is because the earth is floating
03:13 lwq1996 i think i just found the first win7 win
03:13 Sgt_Lemming lwq1996, next time that happens, hit Windows key + r, type "shutdown -A"
03:13 SparkyProjects Lee, read back in log for answers about the vid
03:13 Sgt_Lemming if you are quick enough, it aborts the shutdown

03:39 ajprog_laptop that is alright
03:39 dr_jkl the power went out so i started drinking. because thats what you do in the south when the power's out.
03:39 dr_jkl actually i was playing drunk chess and lost because i almost never drink. :)
03:40 ajprog_laptop I am moving a site redesign live and watching tv, so I won't use it till Monday
03:41 Bat-Mobile question for the channel.  If my apartment were to experience a power surge, would a rechargable battery in the charger pop?

03:44 Bat-Mobile hi exor!
03:44 wannabe-wet its a dredre!
03:44 * exor674 dries wannabe-wet off?
03:44 wannabe-wet haven't showered yet :S
03:45 exor674 hai bat!
03:46 masterofmonks Bat-Mobile: What sort of battery?

03:46 masterofmonks NI-CAD, Nickel Metal Hydride, Li-ion...

03:47 BotSteve "Ibong Adarna is an anonymous Filipino epic on the eponymous magical bird." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibong_Adarna_(mythology)
03:47 Bat-Mobile Nickel metal hydride
03:47 Ponko what?
03:48 tonsofpcs nimh
03:50 Bat-Mobile I'm wondering because I had a battery in a charger that exploded and my TV suddenly won't work.
03:50 masterofmonks Bat-Mobile: It's possible.
03:50 Bat-Mobile they were on different circuits, neither had been unreliable at any time before yesterday
03:50 tonsofpcs could have been extended overvoltage too.
03:50 tonsofpcs (or undervoltage)
03:50 tonsofpcs what is your current line voltage?
03:50 Bat-Mobile The only thing I can think of that would both pop a battery and fry a tv is a surge.  But I don't know a lot about electrical.
03:50 Bat-Mobile tonsofpcs: I measured it this afternoon, it's 120v ac
03:51 Bat-Mobile which is consistent with readings I've taken in the past
03:51 masterofmonks dead on?
03:51 tonsofpcs 120.0?
03:51 Bat-Mobile not sure.  certainly plus or minus 3 volts.  I could get a precise read if it matters.
03:52 Sgt_Lemming Bat-Mobile, if the battery went pop it's entirely possible the charger caused the surge
03:53 masterofmonks Sgt_Lemming: on a seperate circuit?
03:53 Sgt_Lemming ah ok
03:53 Sgt_Lemming nm then
03:54 Bat-Mobile it might be a coincidence, but I don't think so.
03:55 masterofmonks Do you have brownouts much?
03:57 Bat-Mobile No, but we have failures occasionally.  Often enough that when they occur I'm not surprised.
03:57 Bat-Mobile Not often enough that I've purchased a generator or anything.
03:57 * Ponko wants to do his text commentary
03:59 masterofmonks I would buy a couple of deep cycle batteries, a trickle charger and an inverter before a generator.
04:01 Bat-Mobile Noted, but not currently applicable to my situation, at least in the sense of "can I get reimbursed for a TV if I can prove it's likely that a power surge fried mine"
04:01 Bat-Mobile Which is why I'm asking
04:01 Bat-Mobile (:
04:01 masterofmonks Go for that.
04:03 Bat-Mobile Cool
04:03 masterofmonks I assume you have renter's insurance?
04:04 * Bat-Mobile just reviewed the previous conversation and realized that it's unusual to know the average line voltage for their home within plus or minus three volts over the course of several months
04:04 Bat-Mobile and yet here it's perfectly normal
04:04 wannabe-afk happy  now?
04:04 Bat-Mobile I love this channel
04:05 Bat-Mobile and yes, I do have renters
04:05 masterofmonks It's more odd for it to be exactly 120.0
04:05 Bat-Mobile now I'm all curious to see what it is exactly
04:05 Bat-Mobile brb
04:07 Bat-Mobile three different circuits:   119.1 / 119.8 / 119.1
04:08 wannabe-afk renters?
04:08 wannabe-afk o ins
04:08 Bat-Mobile yeah
04:08 masterofmonks renter's insurance.
04:08 wannabe-afk i'm really going to go now....:P
04:08 Toastdude Bye wannabe-afk

04:14 Ponko Packers are 4th and 39 and they have 2 timeouts, the clock is stopped with 10 seconds left and the Pack are losing by 3 points, 21-24 the score to the Pats, here in Super Bowl XLVIX and a Touchdown here can win it for the pack, a field goal can take it into OT but with the clock being as low as it is i don't see a field goal happening and *Ponkos Real Name* takes the snap, looking for an open man, pump fakes and he's gonn

12:53 wannabe1987 sadly lives 45min away, but mom paid me for work yesterday, so i have funds
12:54 CaptainNiobe 45 mins away isn't too bad, it gives the both of you space when/if you need it...
12:55 wannabe1987 true.  but come winter i'll be VERY wary about driving it....i dislike sn*w and driving in it :S.  and he had to get rid of his car :(
12:56 CaptainNiobe public transport an option?

13:15 * wannabe1987 too
13:15 wannabe1987 LOL
13:19 wannabe1987 um you stick it on there and turn the handle?

13:20 CaptainNiobe but i found her a webpage explaining it... yes, webpages explaining how to use manual can openers actually exist! O.O

15:18 Sgt_Lemming I am one of the poor SOB's who has to support it
15:19 Sgt_Lemming "oh you want that feature that every other video editor on the planet has? Sorry, but apple in their infinite wisdom didn't include it"
15:20 MoxieMike joined #thegeekgroup
15:22 Sgt_Lemming one of the most retarded ones is the way imovie imports video
15:23 Sgt_Lemming it can be really stupidly ridiculously hard to get it to import a file, even when it's a file that imovie has previously exported and therefore is definitely in a format it supports

15:25 Experimentonomen hm csan virtualdub really handle the .mp4 files handbrake spits out ?
15:27 SparkyProjects Last couple of times i had QT instaalled on my computer it slowed down noticeably, so now i don't ever want it.
15:27 SparkyProjects And i use Vegas for editing
15:28 Experimentonomen as far as i know, virtualdub only takes .avi and .mpg
15:29 Sgt_Lemming Experimentonomen, handbrake doesn't have to spit out .mp4 files
15:29 Experimentonomen i can only find .mp4 or .mkv to choose as output format
15:31 SparkyProjects vegas takes wmv, that's what i normally edit from
15:31 SparkyProjects Not sure what other formats it can take
15:32 MoxieMike__ joined #thegeekgroup
15:35 tonsofpcs vegas can take anything that WDM can handle iirc
15:36 MoxieMike_ joined #thegeekgroup
15:36 MoxieMike_ left #thegeekgroup
15:36 tonsofpcs also, just because you can render to a certain format does not mean that editing support is easy
15:37 SparkyProjects Vegas won't take QT unless i install QT first
15:37 tonsofpcs right, because QT on windows installs WDM support for QT mux and codecs.
15:38 Sythen morning all
15:38 tonsofpcs I can render to long-GOP MPEG from pretty much anything.  Editing from long-GOP is a PITA.
15:39 Sgt_Lemming http://pastebin.com/bsAqTrTz <-- comments/criticism please but keep it constructive
15:41 tonsofpcs Sgt_Lemming: erm... just uninstall it and go back to an older version of the client
15:41 tonsofpcs (2 on mac or 4 on windows iirc)
15:41 Sgt_Lemming if you read it, you would see why I don't want to do that
15:41 Sgt_Lemming 4 had security issues
15:42 tonsofpcs have they even fixed the codec issues with the latest version?
15:42 tonsofpcs also, are they still pushing the "business" version?
15:42 Sgt_Lemming yes, and it has the same issue, as that's what I am running atm
15:42 tonsofpcs anyway, that email describes your issue in excruciating dettail.  Good luck finding someone willing to read it.
15:43 tonsofpcs Can you make it succinct?
15:43 Sgt_Lemming yeah, I have their email domain and format, so I should be able to get at least one person to see it
15:43 tonsofpcs see != read
15:44 * Sgt_Lemming nods
15:44 Sgt_Lemming but some of the people I am sending it to people like their customer service manager
15:45 tonsofpcs right, but the CS manager isn't going to take the time to read it because he'll see the top line and figure it's just a complaint with no possibility for resolution and dismiss it.
15:46 speed-mobile joined #thegeekgroup
15:46 tonsofpcs also, are you a paying customer?
15:46 Sgt_Lemming well done for clearly not reading the whole email
15:47 Sgt_Lemming as that is something I put in the email as well
15:47 * speed-mobile pokes tonsofpcs
15:47 tonsofpcs oh, I read it.  I saw your description.  But from reading the first three lines (just like a CS manager will), I didn't see it.
15:47 tonsofpcs hi speed-mobile
15:48 Sgt_Lemming I am sending it to 22 different people tonsofpcs
15:48 Sgt_Lemming BotSteve: tell CaptainBoden I pulled apart an IBM r31 the other day, it has a magnesium frame, so entirely possible the fried one did.
15:48 BotSteve Sgt_Lemming: I'll pass that on when CaptainBoden is around.
15:49 tonsofpcs Sgt_Lemming: have you confirmed that this issue is an issue for paying customers?
15:49 Sgt_Lemming yes
15:49 Sgt_Lemming because dad is one, and it happens on his machine too
15:49 tonsofpcs but can he disable it?  (I haven't tried, I use the old version on windows and I use the linux version on linux ;)
15:49 Sgt_Lemming no
15:49 tonsofpcs can you have one of the paying customers send the message instead?
15:49 Sgt_Lemming there is no way to disable it
15:50 Sgt_Lemming short of using an older version (again, security issues) or third party apps (again, security issues)
15:50 Sgt_Lemming they removed the option to disable it ffs
15:51 speed-mobile tonsofpcs: Im making a redstone thing in minecraft capable of displaying 4 charictters of ascii
15:52 Sgt_Lemming cool, only 5 out of the 22 bounced
15:53 Sgt_Lemming so that's 17 people who will at least see it, if not read it
15:53 tonsofpcs because if a paying customer can send it, s/he can put "I am a paying customer" at the top.  Also, have you gone through support as a paid customer or just non-paid?
15:53 tonsofpcs speed-mobile: that means nothing to me.
15:54 Sgt_Lemming tonsofpcs, there is no official way to disable it a number of people on skype forums who ARE paid customers and have been through the support with skype have reported so
15:54 * KB3NZQ_Biostar has to go and work on my house now
15:55 Sgt_Lemming as I have stated about 5 F'ING times already they removed the option to disable it
15:56 Sgt_Lemming for all the versions of it that have been released
15:57 tonsofpcs ok, let me clarify this:
15:57 tonsofpcs as a non-paying user, you are NOT a customer.  You are the product.
15:59 Sgt_Lemming except as I state in that, while I am not a paying a customer, I have a lot of friends/relatives/associates who look to me for what to use as a technical person. If I change and start using something else, then the people who I have influence will fairly soon start using something else.
16:00 Sgt_Lemming and there are a number of paying customers complaining about the same issue
16:00 Sgt_Lemming so it's a moot point
16:04 tonsofpcs there are no "non-paying customers", specifying that customers are paying is redundant.
16:04 Sgt_Lemming right...
16:04 Sgt_Lemming way to contradict yourself
16:05 Seroster My cats are so fucking EMO!

16:21 Sgt_Lemming good luck on that one masterofmonks
16:27 masterofmonks Wall of vermiculite.
16:28 masterofmonks Let it do it's thing and then go in and clean up the HF and HCl
16:29 Sgt_Lemming err, vermiculite will burn in the presnence of ClFl³
16:29 masterofmonks Yep.
16:29 masterofmonks Sure will.
16:30 masterofmonks Then again so will most other things.
16:30 Sgt_Lemming basically the only option with a ClFl³ spill would be to wait it out
16:30 masterofmonks The vermiculite will keep it from drifting.
16:31 Sgt_Lemming true.dat
16:32 masterofmonks I had a 55 gallon steel drum of oxidizer explode one day as I walked into work.
16:32 Sgt_Lemming fun
16:32 masterofmonks The only option there is to isolate it and contain it until it runs it's course and then go in and clean up.
16:33 masterofmonks Same basic principal with most things that are unreasonably hazardous.
16:34 * Sgt_Lemming nods
16:35 Sgt_Lemming I had someone yesterday trying to tell me that storing Liquid Oxygen and Liquid Hydrogen in tanks on the same truck was safe...
16:35 masterofmonks It is.
16:35 masterofmonks You would not believe the abuse those tanks will take.
16:35 angy joined #thegeekgroup
16:35 Sgt_Lemming sure, but he was talking for every day use, like LPG tanks
16:36 Sgt_Lemming there are enough accidents involving BBQ tanks atm, without increasing the volatility of the fuels inside them
16:36 masterofmonks Even the little medical oxygen bottles are made of an inch and a half of aluminum.
16:36 Sgt_Lemming yup, well aware of that
16:36 Sgt_Lemming there are still plenty of people who destroy them on a regulara basis
16:36 masterofmonks You people have accidents with propane tanks there?
16:37 masterofmonks Destroy a medical oxygen tanke?
16:37 masterofmonks Pressurized?
16:37 masterofmonks You are going to have to cite a source on that one.
16:37 Sgt_Lemming Not so much oxygen tanks, but seen a couple of accidents involving propane tanks
16:37 Sgt_Lemming tanks being stored/handled incorrectly
16:37 masterofmonks Propane tanksare a different beast.
16:37 Sgt_Lemming yes, but there are a damn sight more propane tanks in circulation
16:38 Sgt_Lemming if there were the same number of oxygen tanks in circulation, you can guarantee the number of accidents would go up
16:38 masterofmonks They are made of thinner steel, and propane is not exactly explosive.
16:38 Sasha_ joined #thegeekgroup
16:38 speed-mobile joined #thegeekgroup
16:38 Sgt_Lemming yes, whereas hydrogen is, especially in the presence of a ready source of pure oxygen
16:39 Sgt_Lemming picture this, some guy has a tank stored in his garage, garage catches on fire
16:39 masterofmonks It's the oxygen that I would be more worried about.
16:39 Sgt_Lemming tank BLEVE's
16:39 Sgt_Lemming if it's propane, fairly big bang, big fireball and it's all over.
16:39 Sasha_ Hi guys, where can I find a power supply that can go from 0.5 to 2vdc?
16:39 masterofmonks Sasha_: how much amperage do you need?
16:40 Sasha_ Dunno... I need it for this motor: http://www.leshimotor.com/WebUpload/UpLoadFile/2006122264661745.pdf
16:40 Sasha_ To run at really low RPMs
16:40 Sgt_Lemming if it's Hydrogen, Fairly big bang, followed by a second bigger one as Hydrogens higher energy burn comes into effect.
16:40 Sgt_Lemming and god fobid you should have a BLEVE with an Oxygen tank O_o
16:41 masterofmonks It's the oxygen I would be more worried about.
16:41 Sgt_Lemming given the choice of Hydrogen V Propane though masterofmonks?
16:42 masterofmonks In the presence of pure oxygen, you couldn't tell the difference in the crater.
16:42 Sgt_Lemming without the oxygen
16:42 Sgt_Lemming sasha, you want low RPM & high torque?
16:43 masterofmonks Sgt_Lemming: Honestly, the hydrogen.
16:43 Sgt_Lemming why?
16:43 masterofmonks Here's why, it scares people.
16:43 Sgt_Lemming ...?
16:43 masterofmonks They are more likely to respect it.
16:43 Sgt_Lemming ok yeah
16:43 masterofmonks "Ah hell it's just a propane *fireball*"
16:44 Sgt_Lemming but I mean more if you were responsible for cleaning up, or it was threatening something you valued?
16:44 Sgt_Lemming me I'd prefer the propane, because it's a much lower energy burn
16:44 masterofmonks That's what you might think.
16:45 Sgt_Lemming propane has a much narrower window where it will actually go boom
16:45 masterofmonks We have a propane transfer station here in town.
16:45 Sgt_Lemming rather just be a ginormous fireball
16:45 Sgt_Lemming than*
16:45 Sgt_Lemming hydrogens LEL and UEL is 5% and 75% respectively
16:45 masterofmonks About 15 years ago there was an incident where a lightning strike caused an uncontrolled ventign.
16:45 masterofmonks venting*
16:47 masterofmonks The fire was contained to the area of the plant and little immediate damage was seen though it did cause some of the closer houses to combust from radiant heat.
16:48 Sgt_Lemming yeah
16:48 masterofmonks The interesting thing was that about a week later every tree for about half to three quarters of a mile were dying because their leaves had been cooked.
16:48 Sgt_Lemming yeah
16:49 masterofmonks It's the oxygen, because people are dumb about their fittings.
16:51 masterofmonks I assume that this friend is talking abotu running a truck on oxy-hydrogen combustion?
16:51 Sgt_Lemming no
16:52 masterofmonks For transport?
16:52 Sgt_Lemming he started going on about how rockets run on LOX and LH² because they just have to mix the two fluids and they revert to the stable molecule of water and release lots of energy
16:52 Sgt_Lemming then went from there to claim it was the start of a water based economy
16:53 Sgt_Lemming then claimed that we would see HHO or Hydrogen and Oxyen tanks replacing LPG for BBQ's and household use
16:53 masterofmonks Oh, he's one of those.
16:53 * Sgt_Lemming nods
16:53 masterofmonks Does he also believe in homeopathy?
16:54 Sgt_Lemming dunno
16:54 Sgt_Lemming not a friend

16:55 Sgt_Lemming I wrote up a huge reply but it got lost somehow
16:55 Sgt_Lemming mildly annoying
16:55 masterofmonks I am not feeling particularly mascochistic today.
16:55 Sgt_Lemming the other one I have been doing today is writing up a huge EECB to skype
16:56 masterofmonks Really over what?
16:56 Sgt_Lemming the stupid home feature
16:56 Sgt_Lemming it's retarded and annoying, and they removed the option to disable it
16:57 masterofmonks Oh, you mean that BS that keeps popping up every day to tell me things, that makes me want to force the skype execs to listen to Seroster singing?
16:57 * Sgt_Lemming nods
16:57 Sgt_Lemming that's the one
16:57 Sgt_Lemming wanna see it?

17:02 Sgt_Lemming masterofmonks http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Energy_density.svg <--- according to that graph, Hydrogen has approx 2.5 times energy per litre of propane
17:03 masterofmonks Yes.
17:03 masterofmonks I am aware.
17:11 Sgt_Lemming any comments other than pointing out my retarded mistake masterofmonks?
17:12 masterofmonks Hopefully it spawns a patch.

17:14 Toastdude Hi speed-mobile_
17:14 Sgt_Lemming no official editor?
17:14 masterofmonks Pre-alpha.
17:15 Sgt_Lemming ah bugger
17:15 masterofmonks It crashes constantly.
17:17 Sasha_ Sgt_Lemming: Indeed (for the low RPM and high torque) part. Sorry, I was kinda busy
17:17 Sgt_Lemming Sasha_, better option then would be a gearmotor
17:17 Sgt_Lemming or to PWM one of those motors with the full supply voltage
17:18 Sasha_ Hmm... could I use a potentiometer?
17:19 Sgt_Lemming not really
17:19 Sgt_Lemming the current requirements of those motors are fairly large
17:19 Sgt_Lemming on the order of 24W
17:19 Sgt_Lemming a PWM circuit can be done with a 555 timer, a pot and a mosfet though
17:20 Sasha_ So I can't use any potentiometer? Because I'm like a total noob when it comes to something more than attaching 2 wires :P
17:20 Sgt_Lemming heh
17:20 Sgt_Lemming you *can* get wirewound pots that will handle that much current
17:20 Sgt_Lemming it will not be cheap though
17:20 Sgt_Lemming and will likely be huge
17:22 Sasha_ What I was thinking of doing is using a potentiometer to find the voltage we need for a specific speed, then changing resistors or something on an existing PSU (or just leaving the potentiometer there if I'm lazy :P)
17:22 Sgt_Lemming err, usign a pot to do that will not be simple
17:23 Sgt_Lemming seriously, 555 based PWM or a gearmotor is a much MUCH better option
17:23 Niobe|Busy omg, i suck so much...
17:23 Niobe|Busy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9dmdK9Vmr8
17:23 Niobe|Busy BE GENTLE!!! I'M A RANTING VIRGIN!!! please? :D
17:23 Sasha_ Well I'm guessing if this motor can run of a 9V battery....
17:23 Sgt_Lemming heh
17:23 * speed-mobile_ noms on Toastdude
17:23 speed-mobile_ Om nom nom nom
17:24 Sasha_ Because we really don't need it to spin no where near its full potential
17:25 speed-mobile_ Yummy
17:25 Sgt_Lemming Sasha_, trust me on this, a gear motor is a much MUCH better option here
17:26 Sgt_Lemming you can get a much smaller motor, running into a gearbox
17:26 Sgt_Lemming it will use less power to start with
17:26 Sasha_ a gear motor as in a different motor or as in adding some gears?
17:26 Sgt_Lemming a different motor
17:27 Sasha_ Well... um... all the motors we got so far were from the junkyard
17:27 Sgt_Lemming heh
17:27 Sgt_Lemming btw, 9v batteries have a pretty high internal resistance
17:28 Sgt_Lemming so they limit the amount of current available to whatever is connected to em pretty severely
17:28 Sasha_ So I can use a 9V battery and a potetiometer :P
17:28 Sasha_ *potentiometer ?
17:28 Sgt_Lemming kind of, it will kill the 9v battery in very short order
17:29 Sasha_ OMG :O I never knew this would be so hard :
17:29 Sgt_Lemming what are you trying to do with said motor?
17:30 Sasha_ Leslie speaker
17:30 Sgt_Lemming ...?
17:30 Sasha_ .w leslie speaker
17:30 BotSteve "The Leslie speaker is a specially constructed amplifier/loudspeaker used to create special audio effects using the Doppler effect." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leslie_speaker
17:31 Sgt_Lemming oh, a tremolo
17:33 Sasha_ Yeah. So can it be done somehow?
17:33 Sgt_Lemming not off a 9v battery thas for sure
17:33 Sgt_Lemming also, you are not gonna get enough torque out of that matter direct drive no matter what you do
17:35 Sasha_ :facepalm: so what do you recommend?
17:35 Sgt_Lemming a gearmotor :-D
17:35 Sgt_Lemming or some method of gearing it down
17:35 Sgt_Lemming a belt drive would work, but it would need to be a pretty huge ratio
17:36 Sasha_ OMG you're a genius!!! I'm not allowed to use gears, but belts... :D
17:37 Sgt_Lemming belts can be tricky though
17:37 Sgt_Lemming they are a cast iron bitch to keep aligned if they aren't V or flanged pulleys
17:45 Experimentonomen wut ? not allowed to use gears ? o_O
17:45 Sgt_Lemming that's Gearism!

17:53 chrisms ok well basically we're trying to build a leslie speaker from scratch
17:54 chrisms what we're having difficulty with is getting the speed of the motors right
17:54 speed-mobile joined #thegeekgroup
17:54 Sgt_Lemming using a belt drive to markedly gear down the speed of the drive first is a good idea
17:54 Sgt_Lemming and then using a PWM system to control the speed of the motor
17:54 Sgt_Lemming trying to use a pot directly on that motor is a recipe for disaster

17:58 Sasha_ Could you tell us more about the belt drive? I think this will be our best option.
17:58 Sgt_Lemming small wheel driving big wheel via a belt
17:58 Sgt_Lemming the ratio is the difference in circumference/diameter/radius between the wheels
17:59 Sgt_Lemming i.e. a 1" drive pulley driving a 20" power pulley is a 20:1 reduction
17:59 Sasha_ How big would it have to be for this motor and application?
17:59 Sgt_Lemming 1 generic string unit
18:00 Sgt_Lemming in other words, do the math and work it out
18:00 Sgt_Lemming what's your target rpm, what's the rpm of the motor, divide 1 by the other to get the ratio you need
18:01 Sgt_Lemming http://vimeo.com/29017795 <--- wow, just wow
18:02 Sasha_ Ok... but would a 555 circuit work with like 80 amp
18:02 Sgt_Lemming that is what the mosfet is for
18:02 Sgt_Lemming mosfets to handle 80 amps are cheap
18:03 Sgt_Lemming shit, I can buy 60 amp rated mosfets from the little ripoff shop for about $1 a piece
18:03 SparkyProjects Sgt_Lemming, isn't it just the circumference ?
18:03 SparkyProjects It's not as straightforward as 1" dia to 20" dia
18:03 Sgt_Lemming I have some 200amp rted ones I bought online for about $1 a piece
18:03 Sasha_ little ripoff shop :P?
18:03 Sgt_Lemming SparkyProjects, think that over carefully :-P
18:04 SparkyProjects I'd have to work it out :P
18:04 Sgt_Lemming basically, no matter which measurement you use, radii, dia, or circ
18:04 Druidic_Rifleman joined #thegeekgroup
18:04 Sgt_Lemming the ratio stays the same
18:04 Sgt_Lemming so long as you use the same measurement for both wheels
18:05 Sgt_Lemming i.e. 1" diameter gives approx 3.14" circ, 20" dia gives ~60.3" circ
18:05 Sgt_Lemming the ratio between the two... 20:1 :-P
18:05 Sgt_Lemming works the same for radius or circ,
18:05 SparkyProjects OK, fair enough
18:06 Sasha_ Most of the times, laws of physics are awesome. Sometimes, I just want to punch them in the face (or faces :O?)
18:06 SparkyProjects It's a long time since i did physics at school :P
18:06 Sgt_Lemming that's basic geometry, not physics
18:07 SparkyProjects Same for gometry, but we learned about pulley ratio in physics
18:07 Sgt_Lemming heh
18:07 Sgt_Lemming anyone watching that video?
18:10 SparkyProjects Title is misleading :P
18:10 Sgt_Lemming it's not youtube :-P

18:20 speed-mobile Experimentonomen: what
18:20 SuperToast Hit it with a screwdriver?
18:21 speed-mobile Do you want me to eat you too?
18:21 Experimentonomen your burping...
18:21 speed-mobile Lol jk
18:21 tesla4d SuperToast: lead is 50% more dense than steel.
18:22 speed-mobile Oh excuse me sorry Experimentonomen
18:22 tesla4d Look up the densities, do the math. Measure. ??? Conclude
18:22 SuperToast But it's attached to a microscope...
18:23 * tesla4d shrugs
18:23 SuperToast I'm not about to immerse a microscope in water...
18:23 tesla4d Gotta' think laterally sometimes.
18:23 lwq1996 lol
18:23 * tesla4d wishes he could remember the name of the guy who calculated the mass of the earth by measuring torsion forces between lead spheres.
18:24 westmi joined #thegeekgroup
18:24 tesla4d Cavendish. That's right. He did the "Cavendish Experiment"
18:24 tesla4d Good example of indirectly measuring something.
18:25 SuperToast I could take off the base and measure it...
18:26 tesla4d SuperToast: what part of the microscope is the mystery metal?
18:26 tesla4d The base?
18:26 SuperToast Yep
18:26 Seroster Good dumpster day!
18:26 Seroster SparkyProjects?
18:26 Seroster I got another washing machine motor now
18:26 SparkyProjects What did you get ?
18:26 Seroster And a sump pump
18:26 Seroster And a water inlet solenoid
18:26 SparkyProjects cool :)
18:26 Seroster And the control board
18:26 Seroster And a TV
18:26 Seroster And I lost about five gallons of blood in the process.
18:27 SuperToast Looks a lot like lead, at least. Nothing like steel
18:27 Seroster And I did a chris boden pool pipe fail. =P
18:27 tesla4d If it's big enough, you should be able to wrap it in a watertight something-or-other without affecting the accuracy of your density measurements too much to make a determination.
18:27 SuperToast Nice Seroster...
18:27 tesla4d Like, put it in a ziplock bag and suck all the air out.
18:27 lwq1996 pool pipe fail?
18:27 Seroster No, not nice at all, toastdude.
18:28 SuperToast *Sarcasm*
18:28 tesla4d It'll throw your calculations off, but not difference-between-lead-and-steel off.
18:29 Seroster lwq1996, when he cut off a piece of the pool plumbing system and got showered in 4 year old stale pool water
18:29 SuperToast Basically, if it's close to the density of lead, its lead
18:29 Seroster The sump pump exploded in my face
18:29 Sgt_Lemming http://consumerist.com/2011/09/amazing-waiter.html <--- nearly a dozen? 15 by my count
18:29 tesla4d Seroster: yeah.
18:29 tesla4d Whoops
18:29 tesla4d Autocomplete fail.
18:29 Seroster erm.
18:30 lwq1996 ah i see seroster
18:30 Seroster I like you tesla4d. I only have to type te and its done. I HATE CaptainNiobe. =P
18:30 lwq1996 ive done that before when cleanin our pool
18:30 Seroster There was some MEAN detergents in taht water,its started to sting a bit
18:30 CaptainNiobe :P i hate you too, Seroster :P :P
18:30 Seroster =)
18:30 lwq1996 we had to put a new pipe in and...well you get it
18:30 tesla4d SuperToast: Yeah, if it's close, it's probably one or the other. On the other hand, if there's something going on like it's a shell of steel filled with lead shot, then it gets more difficult.
18:30 Seroster I have to type captainn before I can hit tab, you bastard!
18:31 Seroster lwq1996, When dealing with plastic pipe, drill a small hole in the lowest part of the pipe.
18:31 CaptainNiobe but as i've mentioned before, i've been a captain longr than chris has... so i ain't losing it... :P
18:31 Seroster If it is cast iron... Man up and close your mouth.
18:31 lwq1996 im now only learnin this
18:31 lwq1996 damn dad doesnt teach me anything
18:31 Seroster Lol
18:32 Seroster Expect nothing more from a father.
18:32 SuperToast Woah....
18:32 s joined #thegeekgroup
18:32 SuperToast I didn't know about the auto complete...
18:32 lwq1996 hes a cool dad but hes stupid
18:32 SuperToast Hi s
18:32 s hello
18:32 Seroster When I moved out and got my own drill set I was all like "Holy crap.... I can actually drill through sheet metal in less thanten minutes!!!"
18:32 Guest75619 ...
18:33 Seroster I have no idea what my father did to his drills, but they were so damn dull you just had to lean on the drill and wait for it to eitehr melt through or wear through
18:33 Seroster And hi/welcome Guest75619
18:33 Seroster ...
18:33 Seroster That's rude.
18:34 SuperToast Lol
18:35 SuperToast Lolseroster?
18:35 SuperToast WTF?
18:37 lwq1996 lol
18:45 SuperToast lwq1996: Hi
18:46 lwq1996 hi...even tho ive been here for some time
18:47 SuperToast I know

19:06 Seroster SuperToast, what, lolseroster?
19:07 Toastdude Idk... That's why I said "WTF?"
19:09 Electricguy Seroster, i had some random dude in my channel today, he/she also quit when i said hi and welcome... o_O
19:09 Seroster Wat is your chan?

19:23 ajt afternoon all
19:23 Toastdude Hi ajt
19:24 ajt Toastdude: how's it goign?
19:24 Toastdude Good, how about you?
19:25 ajt Great, just looked at a really awesome house with the girlfriend (she's in the process of buying a house) that I'm considering putting an offer in on.
19:26 ajt I'm planning on buying a house next year but if shit goes right I'm not opposed to doing it earlier
19:26 ajt Got to talk tot he bank about some stuff
19:29 CaptainNiobe 'night, all :)
19:30 Toastdude Night CaptainNiobe|AFK
19:46 Kafka I have a project I want to do
19:46 Kafka cluster-in-a-can
19:46 Kafka make a bunch of little boards that'd fit a soda can, put little SoC type deals on them, see hor many nodes I can safely fit.
19:47 Kafka *how
20:16 ajt SoC?
20:16 lwq1996 hi
20:16 ajt hi
20:16 lwq1996 OMG TOM ANDERSON IS NO LONGER RUNNING MYSPACE
20:16 lwq1996 well he left in 2009
20:19 lwq1996 JEZZZ SHOCKED MYSELF AGAIN
20:20 lwq1996 i got a tingly feeling
20:20 lwq1996 hmmmm...electro shock theropy
20:25 lwq1996 anyone going to talk
20:26 eadthem atm im winding a pancake coil just to see what will happen
20:26 eadthem that better?
20:27 lwq1996 sorry didnt know...i mean anyone that wasnt buissy
20:27 lwq1996 bussy*
20:28 eadthem hardly bussy
20:32 Ponko joined #thegeekgroup
20:33 Ponko hey all
20:33 lwq1996 PONKO
20:33 lwq1996 guess what i figured out i made
20:33 Ponko LEEEE
20:33 Ponko what?
20:34 lwq1996 you know i made the desktop sparker....well i can turn it into a electro shock theropy door knob prank
20:35 Seroster Ey SparkyProjects
20:35 SparkyProjects wassup ?
20:36 Seroster I can get three phase from one phase by winding one coil (1k turns) on a metal core, and three 333turn coils on the same core, right?
20:36 Ponko lol
20:36 Seroster And connect three of the 333 legs to a common point
20:37 Seroster I want to spin up the motor but I have no supply of three phase 0P
20:37 SparkyProjects Nope
20:37 * lwq1996 dies of how complicated it sounds
20:37 Seroster Or would the transformer I described just give me three taps of the same phase? =P
20:37 SparkyProjects 3 taps, same phase
20:38 Seroster Not even if I have some longer?
20:38 Hackbat joined #thegeekgroup
20:38 Seroster If I connect the shaft of a 1ph washing machine motor to the shaft of my 3ph motor I should get 3ph out, eh?
20:38 SparkyProjects As i said before, you can test a 3 phase motor it you connect 2 legs to mains, and connect the third leg via a run capacitor to either live oor neutral
20:39 Seroster Yeah, but I don't want to do that =P
20:39 Seroster I am hypothesising on a three phase supply =P
20:39 lwq1996 wow
20:39 Seroster What, lwq1996?
20:40 lwq1996 bothing
20:40 lwq1996 nothing*
20:40 Seroster '-'
20:40 SparkyProjects the motor-generator is unlikely to work as you need some sort of magnetic flux to cut the coils, either a magnetic rotor, or a wirewound rotor you can apply a voltage to
20:41 SparkyProjects Can you get hold of a car alternator ?
20:41 lwq1996 just hooke it up to your car and start the engin?
20:42 SparkyProjects No Lee, the car alternator is a 3 phase alternator, but it has a 3 phase rectifier to change to DC, you would need to do a bit of rewiring
20:43 lwq1996 ah i see
20:43 lwq1996 im just now learing about this stuff
20:43 lwq1996 so this is kind of new
20:43 Seroster Sorry, my mother would get pissed if I autopsied her car D
20:43 Seroster xD
20:44 lwq1996 seroster you how old and still live with your mother?
20:44 Seroster But a car alternator, isnt that hv?
20:44 Seroster lwq1996, 1, I moved out at age 16.
20:44 Seroster 2, I don't live with my mother.
20:44 SparkyProjects You can get about 120 i think
20:44 lwq1996 your mom lives iwth you?
20:44 Seroster 3, If I autopsyed someones car it would be my mothers
20:44 Seroster No, she lives about 100km away
20:44 SparkyProjects Check the dumpsters
20:45 lwq1996 i se where you going at seroster
20:45 lwq1996 hmmm i need a car battery
20:46 Seroster How much would a prevously loved alternator cost? (If I go to my local car scrap dealer)
20:46 lwq1996 15 bucks i think
20:48 Seroster Thats about 12 more than I want to pay
20:49 lwq1996 wow that cheap
20:49 * lwq1996 gets his $3 and goes shoping
20:50 SparkyProjects Seroster, ignore the fact this is about free energy
20:50 SparkyProjects http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5I2JCwlFDY
20:50 SparkyProjects This is how you can change an alternator to use permanent magnets (from microwave etc)
20:50 SparkyProjects Or just keep the rotor coil and feed with a battery
20:50 SparkyProjects You just need to remove the regulator and rectifier and wire direct to the 3 terminals of the stator
20:50 eadthem well thats dissapointing
20:50 Seroster Ocrap
20:50 eadthem i was hopeing to get a buzz or something out of some metal on it
20:50 Seroster Then I could just aswell wind me my own
20:50 eadthem but im thinking the inductance is just incredably low
21:02 tonsofpcs hi
21:05 Toastdude Hi tonsofpcs
21:06 tonsofpcs howdy Toastdude
21:06 * tonsofpcs is wondering how sasha_ is doing on the leslie
21:06 Toastdude How are you?
21:07 lwq1996 OH YES I NOW LIKE SHOCKING MY SELF
21:07 lwq1996 it feels tingly
21:07 Seroster lwq1996, Recite ohms law for me or stop immedeately
21:08 lwq1996 volts times amps
21:08 lwq1996 or divided idk which
21:09 SparkyProjects VxA=W
21:09 lwq1996 OH
21:09 lwq1996 idk then
21:10 tonsofpcs erm... W? V? A?  I=V/R.
21:11 * lwq1996 shocks himself again because it feels good :P
21:11 SparkyProjects I was correcting Lee
21:12 tonsofpcs i is hungry

21:29 Seroster But why is the traces so rounded?
21:29 Seroster Does it make any difference whatsoever at all?
21:29 Seroster Having square or rounded traces thatis
21:30 SparkyProjects If the traces are parallel the current distribution will be the same along the length
21:30 Seroster Yeah.. But why round=
21:31 SparkyProjects Try to get a parallel trace with squre corners and you'll end up with a larger width
21:31 SparkyProjects on the corners

23:03 lwq1996 hi peeps
23:25 masterofmonks http://puppybunnyguineapretty.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/colorpeeps.jpg ?
23:26 tesla4d Hmm.
23:26 tesla4d I just had a bit of a brainwave.
23:27 tesla4d My understanding of audio compression schemes like MP3 is that they store audio data not as a waveform the way PCM does, but in a way that splits up component frequencies in a way similar to a fourier series.
23:27 tesla4d It's common knowlege among audio engineering types that compression tends to generate high harmonics...
23:28 tesla4d So, does the Loudness War have implications for music pirates?
23:28 lwq1996 HAHAHAHAHAHAHA XD LOOK AT THIS GUYS
23:28 lwq1996 http://www.damnlol.com/he-touched-so-many-7280.html
23:30 lwq1996 he touched so many
23:30 tesla4d The quality/size of PCM-format recordings would be less affected by heavy compression than MP3 or other formats that use frequency-space encoding schemes, in theory. Right?
23:30 masterofmonks Why not use FLAC?
23:32 tesla4d I know what you mean, but that's tangential to my point. I'm not asking "How do I get the best quality torrents?" I'm asking "Does the compression involved in the Loudness War have non-obvious consequences for non-PCM formats?"
23:33 tesla4d I'd be surprised if I'm the first person to have this thought, but I've never heard it from somebody else...
23:34 masterofmonks Well you can use spectral analysis to tell.
23:35 Ponko this is
23:35 Ponko 93.1 THE SHARRRRKKKKK
23:36 tesla4d I hadn't thought of that, masterofmonks. Thanks for the pointer. Now I just need to hang onto the idea until I have time to act on it.
23:36 Ponko THE ONLY STATION THAT BITES
23:37 masterofmonks tesla4d: have you seen this? http://wimp.com/loudnesswar/
23:37 eadthem well tbh i had  once upon a time praticipated in audio galaxy in highschool  as did most of my classmates
23:38 eadthem my mom had a cd with kansas  carry on my wayword son on it
23:38 eadthem and i found and downloaded a 256kbps J stereo copy on audio galaxy  and im not shure where it was sourced but  it did sound better than the cd  mostly the high pitches
23:39 eadthem it was a long time ago  and as i remember it was my computer sound system  vr my moms car
23:41 eadthem i know 128 or 160kbps mp3 jstereo is suposidly indistingushable from CD
23:42 Ponko NeWtoz GB and Motown are undeafted
23:42 Ponko undefeated*
23:43 angy every mp3 is distinguishable, that is due to how mp3 compress sound
23:43 tesla4d Pfff. I was about to call bullshit because I thought you said "indistinguishable". Glad I read a second time.
23:44 angy :)
23:45 tesla4d I'm already supposed to be writing 9 research papers for classes this semester. I don't need to add another.
23:45 tesla4d Maybe I'll email Bob Heil and see what he has to say. ;)
23:46 tesla4d Hopefully, it's "Hmm, we could use a mind like yours in this company."
23:46 tesla4d lol
23:46 masterofmonks Worth a shot.
23:46 eadthem i mean indistingushable by hearing alone
23:47 angy depend heavily on your training for that part
23:47 eadthem of corse any decent oscope or expecialy specrum analyser could see the diffrence     even of digial sampling at 192Khz and playback uncompressed at the same
23:47 angy mp3 is so heavily compressed that you can make the difference if you're trained
23:47 tesla4d "training" here meaning "years spent as an asshole audio snob"
23:48 Ponko lol
23:48 westmi joined #thegeekgroup
23:49 angy or if you play yourself music for quite a long time
23:50 eadthem well the one thing i can tell quite well is that my ipod nano sounds like shit compared to my grand marquee  witch itself dosent sound as good as my computer setup
23:50 eadthem when the audigy 2 is in a good mood
23:51 angy EMU10K2 is a great audio chipset
23:51 eadthem yep
23:51 angy way better than crappy realtek thingies
23:53 eadthem id say that depends on age    the newer ones are comparably decent  despite the lack of eax, CMSS, and THX calabration (witch dosent work on my SB card at all)
23:53 angy I think mine got THX calculation, but I don't use it
23:54 eadthem dont know i need to get this soundcard in the new computer im building when bulldoser comes out     suposidly most pepole have soundblaster problems only on via chipsets witch i have
23:54 angy VIA was great, 2,000 years ago
23:55 angy I need to decide if I go AMD for the next computer or not
23:56 eadthem rumor is now that bulldoser will be on newegg on the 22nd
23:56 angy I will be horribly busy on that partiular day
23:57 eadthem ya i intend to wait 1 week
23:57 eadthem give pepole time to tell me if the MOBO i plan to get catches fire or not
23:57 angy :)
23:58 angy the core/modules things seems quite weird at first, but I'll wait to see how it performs
23:58 eadthem shuld do nicely for about anything a home user even a programmer or gamer can do to it
23:59 eadthem it might have minor issues with spice
23:59 ajt joined #thegeekgroup
23:59 angy the thing that may alter a tiny bit performances is the L2 cache not shared by all cores
