00:21 tesla4d joined #thegeekgroup
00:21 wannabe1987 hi tesla4d
00:22 wannabe1987 "I want to try to ressurect him with nature"
00:22 wannabe1987 but instead, the earth swallowed him
00:23 Cheezmo I'm curious if TGG could use with about 350 ER802 8amp diodes for something, lol
00:23 wannabe1987 probably
00:24 wannabe1987 and i dont know what they are
00:24 SparkyProjects Cheezmo, if you know one use for them, then TGG will find 100 uses for them
00:24 Cheezmo had to rip apart a bulk lot of 220 small power supplies for scrap aluminum and the diodes came off with em so I'm trying to figure out if they're any use :P
00:25 wannabe1987 Sparky is right....
00:25 Noise_Marine anyone here good at audio power equations?
00:26 Cheezmo I've done some with audio power, thought I dunno if I'll be much help
00:26 Cheezmo much more attuned to aviation electrical wiring :P
00:26 wannabe1987 aviation?  BatSteve.....
00:26 Noise_Marine how do i find average power, peak voltage and p2p voltage ?
00:27 Noise_Marine voltage too
00:27 Cheezmo well peak voltage is root(2) of rms voltage, it's around 1.414
00:27 Cheezmo so 1Vrms = 1.414Vp
00:29 Cheezmo Vrms is used for the power calculation,  but I've little to no experience with average power
00:29 Noise_Marine thanks you just helped alot :D
00:29 Noise_Marine its .636xp
00:29 Seroster .c 5/(0.8*0.8)
00:29 BotSteve 7.8125
00:31 Noise_Marine thanks a bunch
00:31 Seroster That is the BMI of my cat, lol.
00:31 Cheezmo for average power, it might help to have a scope or DMM with an average function, hmmmm
00:31 Cheezmo lol Sero
00:31 Seroster Are you new here Cheezmo? =P
00:31 Noise_Marine this is all in head for a test lol
00:31 Seroster Havent seen ya before 0P
00:32 Cheezmo in here, yeah
00:32 Cheezmo bit of an electronics and tech geek, hailing from BC, Canada :)
00:33 Cheezmo bit too far from MI
00:33 Cheezmo lol
00:33 Cheezmo :D

00:43 Ponko lol NeWtoz has a kicker ever recovered a fumble for a TD
00:44 Isopropyl[Media] Theres a computer simulation somewhere where that may of happened
00:44 Ponko well i mean in real life
00:44 Ponko and Mason Crosby just returned a fumbled kick off for the Packers against the Lions lol
00:44 Isopropyl[Media] well you didn't state that :P
00:45 Ponko lol i know
00:46 wannabe1987 Isopropyl[Media]!  hi :)

00:48 Ponko 5 mins gone and the Pack are 21-0 over the Lions
00:49 Isopropyl[Media] aww lions are sucking it up again
00:49 Ponko no my Packers are just relentless
00:50 Ponko and this IS a CPU simulation
00:50 Ponko 28-0 now
00:51 Isopropyl[Media] i call shenannigans! Over generous coding on the packers
00:51 Ponko nah not really
00:52 Ponko they do make it fair
00:52 Isopropyl[Media] I know
00:52 Ponko it's just the fact that i made a super team

01:14 wannabe1987 lol
01:14 wannabe1987 my friend has a volvo, she fits her harp in it!
01:14 Seroster Cheezmo, Volvo, ugly as fuck, but great cars.
01:15 Cheezmo Seroster, beauty is in the eye of the beholder :P
01:15 Seroster My uncle moved a fridge, a sofa, a couple of chairs and five garbage bags of clothes in his 240w.
01:15 wannabe1987 mhm
01:15 Seroster Cheezmo, Well, the 240 IS ugly. There is no way to get around no matter how much you love it
01:15 Cheezmo my 142 is sexy though
01:16 Cheezmo nice big 5mph zero-damage bumpers <3
01:16 Seroster Hah
01:18 Seroster I want an old rusty 240, white, with a brown drivers side door, a hood latch concisting of a ziptie, backlights that are held in place by duct tape and mechanical air conditioning (holes in the floor) - That is the most awesome car EVER
01:23 Seroster Did I just kill chat while you go fantasize about that? =D
01:25 wannabe1987 no
01:25 wannabe1987 i didnt see it
01:25 wannabe1987 why do you want a rust bucket?
01:26 Seroster Because it is so much style over a worn out V240W

01:27 wannabe1987 ok
01:27 LemPhone lol
01:27 wannabe1987 haha

01:31 wannabe1987 hi
01:31 Toastdude Wannabe!
01:32 wannabe1987 :)
01:34 LemPhone eep, rapidly flattening battery, logging off
01:34 Ponko well this game is WAY out of hand
01:35 Ponko Packers 87 Lions 7
01:36 Ponko and it's STILL the 2nd 1/4
01:36 astro73|mal ... you're kidding
01:36 Ponko nope
01:36 astro73|mal i didn't think football went up to 87
01:37 Ponko well Northern Illinois beat Toledo 63-60
01:37 astro73|mal even my HS team, with opponents 3 times our size, only went up to 50
01:37 astro73|mal and our league had a mercy rule: If the difference in scores becomes to great, the clock doesn't stop between plays.
01:37 Ponko well this Green Bay team has me as QB
01:38 Ponko this the NFL though
01:38 Ponko well madden nfl 11
01:38 astro73|mal psh
01:38 Ponko yeah
01:39 Ponko well if it was real.........
01:39 Ponko i wouldn't be talking i'd be playing
01:46 Ponko wow 94-7
01:47 Ponko still got 2 1/4s left
01:51 wannabe1987 astro73|mal what is infect counters?   dnd
01:56 Sgt_Lemming home now
01:57 wannabe1987 yay
01:57 wannabe1987 healthy?
01:57 yNos Cprossu you around?
01:59 Ponko hmm
02:02 Sgt_Lemming wannabe1987, it hasn't really changed in the last 120 minutes...
02:03 wannabe1987 o i didnt' remember/hear
02:03 wannabe1987 sorry
02:08 Ponko NeWtoz you wanna know the score
02:08 wannabe1987 tiem to pack up the computer!
02:08 wannabe1987 bye
02:09 Ponko cya kelly
02:09 masterofmonks wannabe1987: It appears to be a house rule adapted from magic.
02:14 Seroster Why do they call them wisdom teeth when they are so damn stupid?

02:22 Hackbat Holy shit I'm tired
02:23 tlockley ditto
02:24 * Hackbat spent the last 6 hours making it where he can be lazy
02:25 * tlockley is bleeding code from the eyes
02:25 Hackbat ME TOO @_@
02:25 tlockley whatcha makin?
02:26 Hackbat I added a python Protocol to Windows
02:26 tlockley not totally sure what that does?
02:27 Hackbat so python:\\{path to pythonscript} opens up the script
02:27 tlockley ah
02:27 Hackbat so you can add it to bookmarks
02:27 Hackbat or webpages
02:27 Hackbat seems useless untill you know what I did the frist two hours doing
02:27 tlockley what is the end result?
02:28 Hackbat all in all?
02:28 Toastdude Hi
02:28 tlockley what was your primary goal in doing all that?
02:28 tlockley hey Toastdude
02:28 Hackbat the purpose was to make it simplier to get a file on to my kindle
02:28 tlockley ok, i remember reading that breifly above
02:29 tlockley so now you can like right click and post to kindle?
02:29 Hackbat no, not yey
02:29 Hackbat I'm working on that
02:29 Hackbat but I have a way of passing data to the command line from the web browser
02:29 Hackbat it's not as simple as I'd liek it to be
02:30 tlockley it nerver is
02:30 Hackbat right now I have to copy the url to the clipbaord
02:30 Hackbat then run the file wither with python:\\ or manually going to the script in windows
02:30 tlockley so the script strips the url from the clipboard?
02:31 Hackbat python:\\ just saved me the hassle of going to the desktop
02:31 Hackbat yeah, it's a dirty solution until I have python:\\ set up to send extra arguments
02:32 tlockley very cool
02:32 Hackbat and tiring
02:33 tlockley i bet
02:33 tlockley lots of regedit  assume
02:33 Hackbat yes but not as bad as you'd thing
02:34 Hackbat if I knew what i was doing when I went in it would of been one .reg file
02:34 tlockley ah
02:35 Hackbat what took the most time was the fact it does sent C:\filename
02:35 Ponko NeWtoz you here still>
02:35 Hackbat *Doesn't send
02:35 tlockley o
02:36 Hackbat it sends python:\\c:\filename
02:36 Hackbat so I have python.exe python:\\C:\filename on the command line
02:36 Hackbat Python did NOT like that at all
02:37 tlockley i bet not
02:37 tlockley how did you strip it out?
02:38 Toastdude Does anyone know if the lsb will be open around Christmas time??
02:38 Toastdude *lab
02:38 Hackbat I had to get help on that cause my code melted brain was trying to find a way to do it IN the registry value
02:39 tlockley o_O
02:39 Hackbat I had the fact pointed out to me I could pass the python:\\c:\filename thing to a batch file
02:39 Hackbat the use:
02:39 Ponko i know you're reading the log BatSteve
02:39 Toastdude Lol
02:40 Hackbat set var2=%var1:python:\\=%
02:41 Ponko BatSteve Lions @ Packers
02:41 Ponko final score Packers 132 Lions 20
02:41 Hackbat this is the actual bat file here
02:41 Hackbat set rawfilename=%1
02:41 Hackbat set filename=%rawfilename:python:\\=%
02:41 Hackbat %filename%
02:42 nazca_ question... how many iterations before I can say there is a realistic virtual certainty that a life board has entered a loop?
02:42 astro73 nazca_: that depends. life board?
02:42 Hackbat do you have a control group?
02:42 nazca_ conway :)
02:42 tlockley going to bed. gnight
02:43 Hackbat night!
02:43 Ponko BatSteve player of game QB #10 R.Poulton 42/53 583 yards  10 TDs
02:43 astro73 nazca_: depends on the size of the board
02:43 nazca_ 16x16
02:43 astro73 glider guns can have very long loops
02:44 nazca_ this is true... and with looped edges gliders themselves will keep going forever
02:44 astro73 one thing you could do is pick an arrangement every N counts and check if future ones match it
02:44 Ponko BatSteve RB #43 R.Douglas 35 carries 311 Yards 8.8 average yardage 5 TDs WR #19 D.Jones 15 receptions 244 yards 16.2 average yardage  4 TDs
02:44 Ponko yep monsterous
02:45 astro73 so that way you know if it's a loop
02:45 yNos this thing is a pita...
02:45 nazca_ I'm thinking of storing a set number of grids and comparing them, it's probably most efficient with limited processing power
02:45 yNos as/400e 9406-s10 for those wondering
02:46 astro73 nazca_: you should only need to store one. I figure refresh it every 16 iterations and compare it. You can have do a hash of it if you want.
02:46 astro73 ooph, let me try that again
02:46 astro73 1. Store a board every N iterations
02:47 astro73 2. Compare each iteration to the stored board. Use a hash for fast pre-comparison if you'd like.
02:48 Ponko time to head off
02:48 astro73 3. If they match, you have a loop
02:48 Ponko night all
02:48 Toastdude Night Ponko!
02:48 Ponko cya toasty
02:48 Ponko left #thegeekgroup
02:48 nazca_ but what's a good value of N?
02:48 BatSteve randomize it
02:48 Toastdude BatSteve!
02:49 egrsteve 4
02:49 egrsteve morning all
02:49 Toastdude 'Ello egrsteve!
02:49 nazca_ egrsteve: based on?
02:50 astro73 nazca_: I would use 32, since that's twice the length of your board. A glider should repeat in that time frame
02:50 egrsteve http://xkcd.com/221/
02:50 astro73 nazca_: bigger is safer, but will take longer to detect loops
02:51 egrsteve hi toast
02:51 nazca_ egrsteve: good answer :p
02:51 astro73 (since it can take up to N for one of the loop frames to get stored
02:54 astro73 although there is merit to BatSteve's solution.
02:55 nazca_ bigger isn't actually safer if you only store 1 frame... it will only ever detect loops that have a cycle length equal to your sample interval
02:55 BatSteve exactly
02:55 BatSteve that's the reason for my suggestion
02:56 astro73 nazca_: no, you check every frame. Only store occasionally
02:56 astro73 so as long as N is bigger than your loop, you will detect it eventually
02:56 nazca_ ah, sorry, yes
02:56 * nazca_ slaps self
02:56 nazca_ it's late lol
02:57 astro73 but the problem is you need to figure out N. Some multiple of your board size (or diagonal) would be good?
02:59 astro73 it's not about the period so much, so just random variation is of limited utility. Increasing N with iterations might be useful, though
02:59 astro73 since most preset boards don't last that long anyway
03:02 astro73 BatSteve: should i slow down?
03:02 BatSteve Pardon?
03:02 BatSteve I'm only watching with half an eye
03:02 BatSteve Slow what down?
03:03 astro73 dev work on BotSteve
03:03 BatSteve hahahahhahaa screw that
03:03 BatSteve Work as much as you want
03:03 BatSteve I think it's awesome that people other than me are contributing
03:04 astro73 maybe you could prioritize bugs?
03:05 nazca_ from what I can see on wiki's list of constructs, 32 will catch most common oscillators
03:05 ajprog_laptop joined #thegeekgroup
03:05 astro73 I'm limiting myself to one pull request at a time. having to try and juggle multiple feature branches isn't worth the trouble
03:05 BatSteve mmm, I gotcha
03:05 BatSteve ok
03:05 BatSteve I'll see what I can do
03:06 BatSteve do you think just a priority tag would be enough?
03:07 astro73 rate them (1-3, 5, or 10), make milestones. You already have "Important". And I just fixed the one bug in there I can
03:08 astro73 Also, I would appreciate input on GH-79. I would like to be able to supplant SQLite completely.
03:11 SparkyProjects left #thegeekgroup
03:12 BatSteve looking
03:13 BatSteve ah
03:13 BatSteve right
03:13 nazca_ bleh! live stream still down?
03:13 astro73 BatSteve: but that's a long term thing.
03:14 BatSteve okay
03:14 BatSteve Will do
03:14 BatSteve (I miss when GitHub would let you prioritize bugs with drag-n-drop)
03:14 Coderjoe_ joined #thegeekgroup
03:15 astro73 yeah. It's not the most featureful bug manager
03:15 Seroster What the fuck
03:15 Seroster two year old smoking baby is going to rehab!
03:16 Seroster ...
03:16 Seroster Is that even nessecary?
03:16 Seroster 1, How the fuck did he start smoking?
03:16 Seroster 2, How could he continue smoking?
03:16 Seroster 3, How hard is it to cut his supply?
03:16 Seroster Bastard can barely walk, he got no money, he isnt tall enough to reach the counter in the tobacco shop
03:17 Toastdude This is weird.. sometimes my Arduino works, sometimes it doesn't..
03:17 astro73 Seroster: kids are clever. Seen them try and go for cookies?
03:18 egrsteve night all
03:19 Seroster astro73o Yes. They are clever. But they aint fucking ninjas.
03:19 Seroster My gfs sisters son is two years old and wants cookies.
03:19 Seroster He is also about a meter tall
03:19 astro73 it's amazing what you can do with drawers
03:19 lwq1996 joined #thegeekgroup
03:19 Seroster And is not left alone for long periods of time, unless he is asleep. He is never ever alone in the kitchen.
03:20 Toastdude Hi Lee
03:20 astro73 just sayin'
03:20 Seroster There is a cabinet on top of the fridge.
03:20 Seroster The fridge is 2 meters tall.
03:20 lwq1996 hi
03:20 Seroster The closest height next to the fridge is the countertop, wich is 90cm.
03:20 lwq1996 i would hate to be on of the chinese people putting together my multi mete
03:21 lwq1996 its so freaking hard if you tear it all apart
03:21 Seroster He needs to get up, jump out, open the door and grab the cookie jar before falling to his death
03:21 Seroster lwq1996, After the first 200 you can do it while asleep.
03:21 lwq1996 lol

03:24 lwq1996 lol at 57
03:25 Seroster Seriously, you get some speed after a while
03:25 astro73 true story. Ever worked in a factory?
03:25 lwq1996 lol
03:25 Seroster I was offered a job.
03:26 Seroster I denied, since I would fucking snap and burn the entire place down.
03:26 astro73 if you don't get speed, they'll fire you
03:26 Seroster Ofcourse they will
03:26 Seroster If you do a bad job you generally get fired
03:26 lwq1996 lol
03:27 Seroster If a fireman doesnt put out fires or doesnt get out of bed fast enough he's fired.  If an electrician takes a week to change a wall socket he's fired. If a cab driver only drives one customer a day he's fired.
03:27 Seroster the best way to get workers to work fast is to pay them per deck of cards
03:28 astro73 true that
03:28 astro73 (but it doesn't work for anything harder than that)
03:28 Seroster Well yes it does
03:28 Toastdude Can and will anyone help me with arduino programming??
03:29 Seroster If not in here try #electronics
03:29 lwq1996 is sasha here?
03:29 Obtuse what is your question toastdude?
03:29 astro73 Seroster: no, actually. There's been studies
03:29 Toastdude How can I make an increasing value in each loop?
03:29 lwq1996 toast...you have one and you dont know how to program?
03:30 Toastdude I only know the VERY basics.
03:30 Seroster astro73, Working as a repairman the dude I was an intern for got paid per job
03:30 Seroster The only problem was that he did a CRAPPY damn job and when I asked "erm... Is it supposed to look like that?" He got rid of my smartass. =P
03:30 lwq1996 lol toast
03:30 Obtuse heres a for loop...
03:30 Obtuse for (i=0; i < endValue; i++)
03:31 Obtuse it sets i to 0, loops until it gets to endvalue, and increments each time it loops
03:31 Toastdude Do I put that in the setup?
03:31 Seroster New captains blog out folks!
03:31 Seroster Ill have to leave and hit the hay tho
03:31 Obtuse no, put it in the other section
03:31 Toastdude the loop?
03:31 Obtuse setup is only for setting your pins
03:31 Obtuse im forgetting the format
03:32 Obtuse there's a setup() and what is the other function?
03:32 Obtuse loop()?
03:32 Toastdude Do I put exactly "i++"?
03:32 Toastdude void loop()
03:32 Seroster astro73, what I want to do is get an assignment like "Today you do A B and C. I don't give a damn how long it takes" - and I can finish in three hours, or six if being lazy
03:32 Toastdude and void setup()
03:32 Obtuse yes. i++ increments a variable
03:32 Obtuse i+ means nothing
03:32 Toastdude Can you change how much it increments by?
03:33 Obtuse yes. you could do i = i+2
03:33 astro73|mal i += 2
03:33 Obtuse i++ is the same as i = i +1
03:33 BotSteve In the last hour, there have been 1 new YouTube videos posted by PhysicsDuck.  New videos:   Captain's Blog 11-3-11 Mail, Bad Electrical, and Woodshop http://youtu.be/cm4l7fWoJlI
03:33 Toastdude So you could do i = i + 0.1 ?
03:34 astro73|mal Toastdude, only if it's a float, not an int.
03:34 Obtuse not with an integer.
03:34 Toastdude Ok... so how do you make it a float?
03:34 astro73|mal declare it as a float?
03:34 astro73|mal or is this not really C?
03:34 Toastdude It's Java
03:34 Obtuse C has a float
03:35 Obtuse NO, its not java
03:35 Toastdude It isn't?
03:35 Seroster astro73, looks interesting, but itll have to wait to tomorrow. Cya mate =)
03:35 Obtuse nope, its called Wiring. Combination of a bunch of shit
03:35 Toastdude Oh, okay
03:35 Obtuse but its not java. you can't do objects
03:35 astro73|mal that syntax is from algol, iirc. it's used in tons of languages
03:35 Toastdude But how do you declare a float?
03:35 Obtuse so a float ... float i;
03:36 Obtuse put that on its own line
03:36 Obtuse you should probably call it something other than i if its a float
03:36 Obtuse perhaps f
03:36 astro73|mal i can mean index
03:36 astro73|mal although it's still incorrect
03:36 astro73|mal n or x might be better
03:41 Toastdude_ joined #thegeekgroup
03:42 Toastdude Darn ting..
03:42 Toastdude *thing
03:42 Toastdude It says "'f' was not declared in this scope"
03:42 astro73|mal Toastdude, you don't do this much, do you?
03:43 Toastdude Nope...
03:43 Toastdude I'm learning.. VERY slowly.
03:43 astro73|mal well, when you rename a variable, you have to rename it everywhere.
03:43 astro73|mal including the declaration
03:44 Toastdude So I can't just put  delay(f) ?
03:44 Obtuse yup
03:44 Obtuse if you set f to a value first
03:44 Obtuse otherwise you will do nothing
03:44 Toastdude Can I paste the code I have in a PM, either of you?
03:45 astro73|mal i'm guessing this is one of those languages that is static: you have to declare and define the code in advance
03:45 astro73|mal use a pastebin
03:45 astro73|mal like paste2.com
03:45 Toastdude Oh wait... Github..
03:47 Toastdude https://gist.github.com/4889280cfc712c998b7e
03:47 Toastdude There
03:48 astro73|mal oh god
03:48 astro73|mal ok
03:48 astro73|mal first of all? indentation
03:48 astro73|mal second thing?
03:48 astro73|mal you need braces around the body of the for loop
03:48 astro73|mal third? you missed a semicolon
03:49 astro73|mal does that cover it all?
03:50 Toastdude https://gist.github.com/4889280cfc712c998b7e
03:52 nazca_ < Toastdude> How can I make an increasing value in each loop? <-- question as phrased, answer is global or static variable
03:52 astro73|mal ummm...
03:52 astro73|mal Toastdude, what do you think that program will do?
03:52 astro73|mal do me a favor and step through it
03:53 Toastdude It says I need to declare 'endValue'
03:53 astro73|mal that too
03:53 astro73|mal you need to come up with one
03:53 Cheezmo If this was VisualBasic.NET, I'd be so much more useful here xP
03:54 Toastdude Instead of putting 'endValue' I put a number? Or 'endValue = 1000' ?
03:54 nazca_ interesting code ... techinally correct yet not useful :p
03:54 astro73|mal a number
03:54 Toastdude Okay
03:54 nazca_ (assuming you define endValue)
03:55 astro73|mal nazca_, i think it's his first time
03:55 lwq1996 .seen wannabe1987
03:55 BotSteve lwq1996: I last saw wannabe1987 1.78 hours ago at 2011-11-04 02:08:52 UTC on #thegeekgroup.  Current time: 03:55:28 UTC
03:55 Toastdude It is... This is the most complex program I've ever made for the arduino
03:55 astro73|mal this is complex?
03:57 Toastdude It is to me. It's not universally complex, though
03:57 Toastdude ..
03:57 astro73|mal ok, for loop syntax is generally like this:
03:57 astro73|mal for (<initializer>; <check>; <increment>) { <body> }
03:58 Toastdude Oh... Thank you
03:58 nazca_ ooh, missed a semicolon *fixed*
04:00 astro73|mal Toastdude, every function and variable must be declared and defined. Before you can use it, you have to say what it is
04:01 Toastdude Ok...
04:01 Toastdude It looks like it should work, but it isn't...
04:01 astro73|mal is it compiling at least?
04:03 Toastdude Yes
04:03 astro73|mal ok. what is it doing? and what are you expecting it to do?
04:05 Toastdude It's alternating at a constant speed, and I want it to start fast and alternate slower and slower each loop
04:06 astro73|mal what's the units on f?
04:07 Toastdude milliseconds
04:08 astro73|mal so 1000 is 1 second of time?
04:08 pegasus astro: C?
04:09 Toastdude Yes
04:09 astro73|mal pegasus, audrino sketches, close enough to C
04:09 pegasus for (once; second; fourth) { third; }
04:09 astro73|mal Toastdude, what's that constant speed?
04:09 astro73|mal pegasus, we're past that part, thanks
04:09 pegasus what you do in them is optional, but "second" is the "continue or not" function
04:09 Toastdude What constant speed
04:09 pegasus my point is that you don't have to do what the typical for loop purpose of those parts is
04:09 Toastdude ?
04:10 astro73|mal Toastdude, can you make any estimation how fast?
04:10 Toastdude How fast they will alternate?
04:10 astro73|mal how fast they are alternating
04:11 pegasus knowing what order they go in is far more useful than the typical for loop construct in most of my code these days
04:11 Toastdude Well, they'll start out at 500hz, then decrease frequency as each delay increases with each loop
04:12 astro73|mal pegasus, this is his first time. I'm not going to cover advanced for loop usage
04:12 Toastdude k, they'll start out really fast then decrease speed...
04:12 pegasus not even convinced that typical usage is best to teach a first timer, but that's a debate for another time
04:13 astro73|mal Toastdude, so it's behaving as expected?
04:13 Toastdude No, that's what I want it to do... It's blinking at .5hz
04:14 astro73|mal "<astro73|mal> Toastdude, i'm not asking about expected behavior. I want to know about observed behavior"
04:14 astro73|mal you are reading what i'm writing
04:14 Toastdude Yes, I'm just not thinking..
04:14 Toastdude I'm sorry.
04:15 pegasus ...i haven't seen any mention of a delay function/method
04:15 astro73|mal ok, word of advice?
04:15 astro73|mal pegasus, look at the code again
04:15 * pegasus pulls up a link, then
04:15 astro73|mal Toastdude, in CS, thinking is what we do.
04:16 astro73|mal try and keep that brain engaged
04:16 Toastdude Yes, I know......
04:16 Toastdude Sorry...
04:16 BatSteve astro: don't be ridiculous.  Thinking isn't necessary - if it compiles, ship it
04:17 pegasus heh
04:17 pegasus is there no integer variant of delay()
04:17 astro73|mal wait
04:17 astro73|mal delay() is in MS
04:17 astro73|mal why are you adding 0.1MS to something?
04:19 pegasus ...megaseconds
04:19 Cprossu lol
04:19 pegasus glad somebody else was thinking it
04:20 Cprossu .c 1megasecond to microsecond
04:20 BotSteve 1ÃÂ 000ÃÂ 000ÃÂ 000ÃÂ 000 microseconds
04:20 Cprossu hahahaha
04:20 Cprossu it worked
04:20 astro73|mal ok, does anyone else here actually know audrinos? i've never actually played with one..
04:20 Toastdude Because I want the frequency to change slowly... I thought you could have less than one millisecond since the clock speed could easily handle it...
04:21 Cprossu .c 1megasecond to days
04:21 BotSteve 11.5740741 days
04:21 pegasus i know that just about every FPU known to man is going to cause clock slew with that code
04:21 astro73|mal Toastdude, that's complicated. delay probably isn't written to handle it.
04:22 Toastdude Okay. So I'll just add 1.
04:22 astro73|mal pegasus, and we care why?
04:22 pegasus because he wants .5hz
04:22 pegasus not .50001hz
04:22 pegasus or .49999hz
04:22 astro73|mal pegasus, i don't think he cares that much right now, considering he can't get a basic loop working.
04:23 Toastdude Yes, If I just get it to work, then I'll worry about it doing exactly what I want later..
04:23 nazca_ delayMicroseconds()
04:23 nazca_ just fyi :)
04:25 astro73|mal Toastdude, you've got the right code. But embedded systems can be funny sometimes
04:25 nazca_ what's the code currently looking like?
04:26 Toastdude https://gist.github.com/76d7f7c9c0c862eac9a7
04:26 Toastdude That ^
04:27 sndwrx hey pegasus
04:27 pegasus ?
04:27 pegasus oh, hi
04:27 nazca_ and the problem is that you're not seeing it slow down?
04:28 Toastdude Yes
04:29 sndwrx how ya doin' pegasus ?
04:29 pegasus doing alright
04:30 nazca_ it starts at 500Hz and slows at 2ms per loop ... I suspect the change is likely too gradual to notice
04:31 nazca_ POV kicks in at like 30-40Hz doesn't it?
04:31 Toastdude Well I tried at a 5ms increase, and have been running it for a while, and still no change
04:32 nazca_ hmmm, it should hit .5Hz before resetting
04:33 nazca_ let me tweak the pins and feed in to my arduino
04:34 astro73|mal btw, at 1ms increments, you're looking at 8min before it wraps
04:34 astro73|mal *16min loop
04:35 Toastdude I put it up to 10
04:36 nazca_ interesting
04:36 astro73|mal that should run in <2min then
04:37 nazca_ oh ... I see the problem
04:37 nazca_ duh
04:37 Toastdude Bye BatSteve-Away !
04:37 astro73|mal oh?
04:37 nazca_ there's a semicolon on the end of the for construct
04:37 Toastdude What's the problem?
04:37 pegasus nazca: depending on duty cycle, you'd notice it at 30hz
04:37 astro73|mal that would do it
04:38 astro73|mal congratulations, you've been indoctrinated into c
04:38 nazca_ see if you do "for (;;);" it will act as if you did "for (;;) {}"
04:38 Toastdude Wow... Thank you!
04:38 pegasus perfect example of the benefits of 1tbs
04:39 nazca_ as it happens, that was the semicolon I missed and went back to remove earlier ;)
04:39 astro73|mal Nazca, that's not the one you missed
04:39 astro73|mal you just thought it was
04:40 nazca_ nope, it's the one :p
04:40 Guardianzozo joined #thegeekgroup
04:40 astro73|mal no, you missed the one after the variable
04:40 nazca_ no, really, it's the one I missed and fixed :p
04:41 astro73|mal w/e
04:42 nazca_ cause when I removed the braces from around the for loop and put them in the right place, I hit publish before noticing I hadn't removed the semicolon as well
04:43 astro73|mal anyways, does it work now?
04:43 nazca_ yes
04:44 nazca_ or at least my test of it worked :)
04:44 Toastdude Mine does too :) Thanks!
04:44 nazca_ yw
04:45 pegasus does f++ not work
04:45 astro73|mal pegasus, it works, let it go.
04:46 pegasus you know, i might have to scroll up, but i'm pretty sure that's the first time i asked about the increment operator in this not C language
04:46 astro73|mal pegasus, i'm pretty sure it's just C, or really close to it.
04:46 Cprossu .c 1terasecond to nanosecond
04:46 BotSteve 1.0 Ãâ 10^(21) nanoseconds
04:46 Cprossu night all
04:47 pegasus zetasecond.
04:47 astro73|mal yactosecond?
04:47 Cprossu .c 1yottasecond to nanosecond
04:47 BotSteve 1.0 Ãâ 10^(33) nanoseconds
04:48 astro73|mal that's kinda like yacto
04:48 pegasus .c 1 yottasecond to yoctoseconds
04:48 BotSteve 1.0 Ãâ 10^(48) yoctoseconds
04:48 Toastdude for (f=1000; f > 1; f=f/2)   Produces a kinda neat result
04:48 sndwrx What are you building Toastdude ?
04:49 Cprossu .c 1yottasecond to decades
04:49 BotSteve 3.16887646 Ãâ 10^(15) decades
04:49 sndwrx cool
04:49 Cprossu ^speaking of interesting results lol
04:49 Toastdude I'm learning for loops, though, which is kinda important....
04:50 Cprossu .c 1yottasecond to centuries
04:50 BotSteve 3.16887646 Ãâ 10^(14) centuries
04:50 yNos Cprossu: guess what i just did!!
04:50 Cprossu yNos: Shit a HC11 microcontroller?!
04:50 yNos nop
04:50 Cprossu damn
04:50 yNos that would hurt
04:50 Toastdude Lol
04:50 Cprossu at least they are small
04:50 Toastdude Hi yNos
04:51 yNos we now have an AS/400
04:51 Cprossu what era?
04:51 yNos twas donated yesterday
04:51 yNos late 90s
04:51 Cprossu so black not beige!
04:51 yNos yupyup!
04:51 yNos it is running v4r4m0
04:51 Cprossu do we have the draconian liscensing to go with it?
04:51 Cprossu and the tape backups?
04:51 yNos just bumbled through the password recovery proc
04:51 astro73|mal ... what are we going to do with an AS/400????
04:52 yNos we have one tape.
04:52 yNos one disk
04:52 yNos erp.. a couple OS disks
04:52 yNos and som lic papers
04:52 Cprossu what do we have to IPL the fucker
04:52 Cprossu or is it one of the 'small' ones?
04:52 yNos no install, yes on the IPL
04:53 yNos is a as/400e 9406-510
04:53 pegasus "what are we going to do with an AS/400?" = amulet of yendor, obviously.
04:54 Cprossu 510 would be ppc.... not sure how many though
04:54 astro73|mal sorry, what little i've heard about the AS/400 from my dad, there's better ways to do databases
04:54 Cprossu depends on the AS/400
04:55 Toastdude Thanks for all your help!
04:55 Toastdude Time for sleep.
04:55 yNos it is a toy - not many places have an AS400 that anyone can walk in and bumble around in.
04:55 yNos fck
04:55 yNos its 1pm
04:55 yNos 1am
04:56 Cprossu eventually you'll get it right
04:56 astro73|mal nearly everything there is a "toy" by that definition
04:57 Cprossu yNos at one point tgg scrapped several of the older late 80's AS/400's
04:57 Cprossu I mean they took up like 1/2 of one of their labs
04:58 Cprossu years and years ago
04:58 yNos really?
04:58 yNos someone donated a plex?
04:58 Cprossu yeah if we look hard enough we might be able to find photos
04:58 pegasus Cprossu: are you working on the AS/400?
04:59 yNos i am
04:59 Cprossu hell no
04:59 pegasus yNos: will it run VM/CMS?
04:59 astro73|mal ok, goodnight
04:59 yNos have never worked on an as.. worked a little with zOS in my ops days...
04:59 yNos i sont know what it will run.
05:00 pegasus if it runs VM/CMS, you gotta put the PL/I version of colossal cave adventure on it
05:00 yNos am applying the PTCs now.
05:00 yNos i saw some PL/I docs that came with it..
05:00 pegasus circa 1978 textmode gaming ftw
05:01 yNos once we get it up and accounts created, we will likely setup a port forward to this beastie.
05:02 Cprossu I'll get out my WYSE terminal and my sportster 33.6 and we can do this proper
05:02 pegasus :D
05:02 Cprossu think it'll work over voip yNos?
05:02 Cprossu hahahahah
05:02 pegasus probably will
05:02 pegasus if you use u-law and drop no packets i know it will
05:03 Cprossu yeah I was just looking at that sucker
05:03 pegasus idk about speex though
05:03 Cprossu we need the options in the mainframe section
05:03 Cprossu 19.2 would eb fine pegasus
05:05 tonsofpcs 711? 722? 729?
05:05 yNos 711
05:05 tonsofpcs (what are we doing?)
05:05 tonsofpcs g.
05:06 yNos oh
05:06 yNos i was craving a slurpee
05:06 tonsofpcs sure, bring me some taquitos?
05:06 pegasus then what you want is .636363...
05:07 tonsofpcs nearest 7-11 is just under 100 miles from my zip code...
05:07 Cprossu ouch.
05:07 yNos yay.. SNA >_<
05:07 Cprossu the speedway close to the lab has damn good icee/slurpee/things
05:08 pegasus -4 is totally different from .636363...
05:08 tonsofpcs nearest 7-11 to where I grew up? around the corner... nearest 7-11 to high school, where I bought way too many lunches for 1/3 the price of a school lunch?  about 6 houses down...
05:11 nazca_ < astro73|m> pegasus, i'm pretty sure it's just C, or really close to it. <-- it is C with a compressed standard library
05:11 tonsofpcs last 7-11 I was at?  Just east of Madison Square Park (23rd, east of Park)
05:11 nazca_ Cprossu: what's wrong with the stream this time?
05:11 pegasus compressed or abridged?
05:12 Cprossu nazca_: I never got the teamviewer login
05:12 nazca_ pegasus: depends on your definition of compressed... abridged would be accurate I think
05:12 Cprossu so that's what's wrong with it =P
05:12 pegasus fair enough
05:13 pegasus nazca: is delay() a native function of the language?
05:14 nazca_ I need to go back in to the hardware headers and find another port :/
05:14 nazca_ it is
05:14 pegasus is there no integer variant?
05:14 nazca_ um, it takes an unsigned long
05:15 * pegasus scrolls up to find the link and click it again
05:15 nazca_ http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/Delay
05:15 pegasus oic, he changed it
05:15 pegasus for a while there it was float f; delay(f)
05:15 pegasus and i was like "NOOOOOOO!!!!"
05:16 Cprossu so let me know what's up/new tomorrow yNos
05:17 pegasus good to know arduinos are saner than that.
05:17 nazca_ but yeah, I'm using all my arduino's analog pins so I have no handy random seed source
05:20 yNos so.. i cant change the IP while tcp is active?
05:20 Cprossu on the as/400?
05:20 yNos yeah
05:20 Cprossu I think you have to take the connection down to change it
05:20 yNos it wont let me de-config the address.
05:20 yNos yeah
05:20 Cprossu you'll need a serial in/out
05:20 Cprossu or twinax
05:21 yNos i have twinax term
05:21 Cprossu so you at the lab right now?
05:21 yNos yeah
05:21 yNos will need to whack the printer service too.
05:21 Cprossu hrmmmm
05:21 Cprossu that might be tricky
05:22 Cprossu is MC still unlocked?
05:22 yNos or at least de-config the printer that isnt there.
05:22 yNos nope
05:22 Cprossu shoot.
05:22 nazca_ oooh, I can use port A, that's consecutive
05:24 lwq1996 hia ynos
05:24 nazca_ ah, the eternal geek dilema... sleep or code
05:24 lwq1996 lol
05:27 Cprossu no dilema
05:27 Cprossu sleep and code.
05:27 Cprossu sleepcode
05:27 lwq1996 if i have code to do or sleep and i choose sleep...i always dream im coding
05:27 Cprossu HAHHAAHAHAH @ tgg official video
05:28 Cprossu for the tootsie pop
05:28 lwq1996 lol
05:28 Cprossu they didn't add in "it tastes like ass" to the end of it heh
05:28 lwq1996 lol ik
05:28 lwq1996 i wonder how he knows what ass tastes like :\
05:29 lwq1996 lol
05:30 Cprossu heheheh
05:31 lwq1996 hey ynos...i could probally get two grab bags from makers shed too
05:33 yNos how are their prices?
05:33 lwq1996 20 per bag
05:33 Cprossu when I went to the makers faire in MI when I was there the prices were ~50% markup.
05:34 Cprossu though there were cheap goodies to be had
05:34 Cprossu just not in the makers shed store thing
05:34 lwq1996 1000 peices for 20 dollars
05:34 lwq1996 is that a good deal?
05:34 Cprossu depends on what the pieces were
05:35 lwq1996 a grab bag full of different components
05:36 lwq1996 http://www.makershed.com/product_p/jm135263.htm
05:37 Cprossu considering the 'sample' bag even has 5x5 led matrixes in it
05:37 Cprossu looks like it could pan out
05:38 lwq1996 cool
05:38 * Cprossu wonders
05:38 Cprossu google to the rescue!
05:38 lwq1996 lol
05:40 Cprossu http://www.jameco.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10001_10001_135263_-1

05:43 Cprossu in a day
05:43 Cprossu the bits aren't made well at all
05:43 lwq1996 lol...not if he actually took care of it
05:43 Cprossu HAAHHAAHAHAHA

05:44 Cprossu read up a few lines heh
05:44 yNos lol
05:45 Cprossu looking at the jameco grab bag..... hrmmmmm... as far as it being worth \$20, it is and it isn't.
05:46 Cprossu you should get \$20 of use out of it, and if you were yNos you could probably build a fully functioning weather satellite out of the parts this video contained
05:47 lwq1996 http://www.makershed.com/product_p/dsmb01.htm  RIP OFF
05:48 Cprossu rip off: http://www.makershed.com/product_p/mstin1.htm

05:50 lwq1996 lol
05:50 Cprossu but yeah there are about \$20 of headers in that paticular bag.
05:51 lwq1996 i like what i see
05:52 Cprossu headers and molex connectors.... hrmmm
05:52 Cprossu perhaps I'll snag one if it ever goes on sale somewhere for \$15
05:53 lwq1996 lol

06:22 Cprossu I also see a '3277' ready to use
06:22 yNos acting like a 3277
06:22 yNos i think

06:23 Cprossu I am acting as a 3270.. I think
06:24 Cprossu *3279
06:24 Cprossu -4-e
06:25 Cprossu although this program doesn't like my REAL terminal keyboard
06:27 Cprossu yNos: CD drive should be "OPT01"
06:27 Cprossu and it should automount
06:30 Cprossu yNos: what the hell is it doing?
06:30 yNos sitting there

06:33 yNos not sure what languages/compilers are in it.
06:33 Cprossu so I am going through the licenses
06:34 Cprossu here's what I think
06:34 Cprossu System 36-> migrated to older AS/400 migrated to newer AS/400
06:34 yNos we have an older black AS that came with it.
06:34 Cprossu by older I mean beige
06:34 yNos and a PC case with oddball hardware
06:34 yNos no kb jack
06:35 Cprossu get me some pics when you can
06:35 yNos looks AT
06:35 Cprossu is there a modular on it?
06:35 yNos modular?
06:35 Cprossu like a malformed RJ45
06:35 yNos not mini db15
06:35 yNos hmm
06:35 yNos not sure
06:35 Cprossu similar to what it looks like on the back of a modem M keyboard with detachable plug
06:35 yNos let me check..
06:36 * yNos is putting his shoes back on
06:36 Cprossu do you have the PA1 and PA2 keys on your keyboard?
06:38 Cprossu Roll Up and Roll Down are your page up/down yNos
06:39 yNos nope
06:39 yNos 2 db25
06:39 yNos 1 db15
06:39 yNos modem
06:39 Cprossu it got a ibm model # on it?
06:39 yNos nope.
06:40 Cprossu old IBM metal badge at least?
06:40 Cprossu or is it a diagnal blue/gery one?
06:40 yNos the PC?
06:40 Cprossu yeah
06:40 yNos the PC is generic beige case from early 90s
06:41 Cprossu so it's like something someone made in their basement to interface 2 generations of something then?
06:43 yNos yeah
06:43 yNos not sure what it is..
06:44 yNos odd it doesnt have hd-db15 for a monitor..
06:44 Cprossu pictures of it and it's insides would help
06:44 yNos maybe it needs a reminal?
06:44 yNos i dont have a camera here..
06:44 yNos otherwise i would
06:44 Cprossu any of your cell phones have cameras
06:44 Cprossu ?
06:44 yNos it does, but it isnt worth a shit
06:45 Cprossu still might be enough for me to figure out wtf is going on

06:50 yNos missed their meeting.
06:51 Cprossu there were only 5 of them anyway (/joke)
06:53 yNos wouldnt surprise me
06:56 Cprossu they don't make it very easy (IBM that is) to keep those machines going software wise
06:57 yNos agreed
06:57 Cprossu many computer collectors have the same issues with softwares on their iron mainframes
06:58 Cprossu it's either 1) get ahold of long almost dead IBM engineer who has everything or 2) luck
07:08 yNos yup
07:09 yNos Ok
07:09 yNos i am going to pack itup

16:32 angy =)
16:32 angy and /no/ I won't get on another plane to have a american thanksgiving

16:32 astro73 you could always have it over there. People would just look at you funny

16:33 astro73 you could celebrate getting rid of all those conservatives
16:35 angy I should get that up and try getting the family to do a thanksgiving
16:35 angy that could be so much fun
16:36 angy I'll send you an invitation :p

16:38 angy fork it in bob :p
16:38 angy Yay! it's perl based
16:39 astro73 i strongly dislike perl, but it's already written
16:39 Cprossu it could be worse
16:39 Cprossu it could be java
16:40 angy java is a thing... /just/ a thing
16:41 Cprossu as long as you include thing.class =P
16:42 angy it goes along with oom.kill and pain.arse
16:44 astro73 hmmm... unfortunately, I can't seem to figure out how to get alice to work?
16:44 angy punch her?

16:54 angy I think between 5-20ms as a guess right now
16:54 injektion Ouch
16:55 angy I'll be able to get you a better answer next friday I think
16:56 angy currently my ping is 93ms with a jitter of 207ms because I'm at the limit of the AP range
16:56 angy and a few packet lost as well, so need repeater :p
16:57 astro73 oh! there we go. apparently I haven't completely got my permissions figured out yet.
16:58 angy that's a shame

17:01 astro73|alice ok, that works.
17:01 astro73|alice now i have to configure authentication and outbound ports
17:01 astro73|alice which has to get done at home
17:02 astro73|alice could use enhancements though

17:04 angy why do you use a web-based client ?
17:05 astro73|alice chromebook
17:06 astro73|alice oh, lol. this might work
17:06 angy that reminds me of my netbook that I need to mend a little
17:07 angy Yay! I shifted my position and doubled my transmission rate! I'm now at 2M instead on 1M!
17:07 angy or not
17:08 injektion I can only get 65MB/s on 802.11n on the laptop don't know if that is because of the wifi signal or the adapter in the laptop
17:08 angy I can, if I move closer to the AP
17:08 astro73 except i guess the router reboots when i save?
17:08 injektion I put the laptop in front of the wifi access point and I still get 65MB/s
17:09 astro73 which kinda kills the forwards
17:09 angy I'm like super far from the AP, if I move another meter away, it drops

22:38 wannabe1987 yessir!
22:38 masterofmonks The problem I have with Dolalr Tree, (Full disclosure my housemate works there) is that generally you end up paying more than you would at say walmart.
22:38 masterofmonks Also generally their quality is... lacking.
22:39 Cheezmo well, for some things they have a one-up
22:39 Cheezmo I found the MidWest dollar trees have better deals
22:39 Cheezmo like 3 Litre sodas for a dollar
22:39 wannabe1987 yeah. but my hairbrush from them lasted 3-4 years.  and i can get cards for .50/each.  and the alum foil and plastic wrap and such are good
22:39 masterofmonks Oh, ours has that too.
22:39 wannabe1987 yes those are awesome
22:39 wannabe1987 frozen veggies for a buck?  yes please!
22:39 masterofmonks But I think that soda tastes like crap.
22:40 wannabe1987 2.49\$ soups (at meijer or wally world) for a buck?  yes please!
22:40 Cprossu damn I don't need any dvd burners today
22:40 MoxieMike joined #thegeekgroup
22:41 Cheezmo well, I suppose it's a matter of taste in the soda department
22:41 Cprossu I like the various dollar stores for random shit.
22:42 Cprossu like LED flashlights that come with a superbright blue/red flashing LED
22:42 Cprossu or lighted USB cables that didn't sell well
22:43 Cprossu though I did once score about 10 50' cat5e network cables once
22:43 Cprossu I generally make my own but at \$1 a pop I couldn't argue
22:44 Cheezmo I buy all my electronic knick-knacks directly off eBay from China
22:44 MoxieMike there is no argument at that price
22:44 Cheezmo I got this great bright LED flashlight with white, UV and a laser pointer in-one for like \$4
22:44 wannabe1987 i got black electrical tape from dollar tree, 2/1 and it works well
22:45 Cprossu I have like 6 of those Cheezmo
22:45 masterofmonks Argh
22:45 masterofmonks http://hothardware.com/News/Commodore-USA-Puts-C64x-Extreme-On-Sale/
22:45 Cprossu don't like the batteries they came with though
22:45 masterofmonks Why do I want one of these?
22:45 Cheezmo most of my tape I yoinked form old jobs :P
22:45 Cprossu masterofmonks: because you don't want to tear apart a perfectly good c64 to make your own
22:45 Cprossu yikes @ \$1500 though
22:45 masterofmonks There is something strangely sexy about the thing.
22:46 Cheezmo That's a nice computer there
22:46 Cprossu and it's not the cheap piece of shit chinese card reader they stuck in the side
22:46 Cheezmo though it's a bit bulky for my keyboard tray, lol
22:46 Cprossu and spilling your beer in it would make you cry
22:46 Cprossu even moreso than when I spill beer into my model M
22:46 astro73|alice_ masterofmonks: because it's awesome?
22:46 Cheezmo they likely worked that into the design, I'd assume
22:46 Cprossu (it's happened before)
22:47 masterofmonks Well nothing stops you from using a USB keyboard and mouse...
22:47 Cheezmo It's nice that they have PS/2 connectors, since that's all I use P:
22:47 masterofmonks Though it would be sad to let that nice cherry switch keyboard go to waste.
22:48 Cheezmo I like my old Mitsumi keyboard... I prefer the large ENTER keys and small BACKSPACE
22:48 Cprossu no one makes a keyboard with the cherry blue switches =(
22:49 masterofmonks Cheezmo: the L shaped enter key?
22:49 Cheezmo love it :)
22:49 Cheezmo http://www.shopeio.com/inventory/images/KFKEA4XT.jpg
22:50 MoxieMike_ joined #thegeekgroup
22:50 Cheezmo mine is a KFK-EA4XA though
22:50 masterofmonks My opinon, is that if every L shaped enter key keyboard were dropped into the nearest black hole with all of hte people that love them... I probably wouldn't feel bad about it.
22:50 Cheezmo don't think there's a difference
22:51 Cheezmo I think the most of it is that I'm much too used to it, since this is my first keyboard still, and I'd hate to get used to something new
22:51 Cprossu http://oi55.tinypic.com/2m4p24m.jpg
22:51 * Cheezmo hates change
22:51 Cprossu ^ this is my current keyboard
22:51 Cheezmo a noisy one :D
22:51 Cprossu indeed.
22:52 Cheezmo your directional buttons are odd, lol
22:52 Cprossu and the escape key is where it belongs too.
22:52 Cheezmo wait, where is it?
22:52 Cprossu check out a original ibm AT keyboard for quick answer
22:53 injektion Someone needs to clean off their desk
22:53 Cprossu it's even worse now
22:53 Cheezmo lol, time for a snow shovel treatment on the desk
22:54 Cprossu at least my keyboard is clean
22:54 Cheezmo I need to wash mine again...
22:54 injektion That's a nice IBM terminal keyboard :P
22:54 Cheezmo pull all the keys off and take the top off and hand scrub the crap out of it all
22:55 masterofmonks This is my keyboard. http://www.quickship.com/images/cyborg-v.5-keyboard---wired-pic1.jpg
22:55 Cprossu injektion: it's actually from an IPL computer
22:55 Cprossu not many exist
22:55 injektion masterofmonks, I have a steel series keyboard
22:56 Cprossu as in the pc that sits next to the mainframe and connects to it via twinax
22:56 Cprossu http://lowendmac.com/thomas/09tt/model-f/005.jpg
22:56 Cprossu ^ this is the original AT keyboard
22:56 Cprossu (though someone put a at-ps/2 adap on it)
22:56 Cheezmo I'd love to get a luxeed... http://whiterabbitexpress.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Luxeed-U5-Dynamic-Pixel-LED-Keyboard.jpg
22:56 masterofmonks I was a big fan of Logitech keyboards, but any more...
22:56 Cprossu I have one of those masterofmonks... it melted in my car one day
22:57 Cprossu I loved logitech keyboards
22:57 Cprossu then I killed 5 in the span of 6 months
22:57 masterofmonks Cprossu: Yes, but you live ont he surface of the sun.
22:57 Cprossu true true
22:57 Cprossu anyway I killed 5 and needed to do a report
22:57 Cprossu so I grabbed the first keyboard I ever owned
22:57 Cprossu (IBM model F)
22:57 Cprossu and a AT/PS/2 adap
22:58 Cprossu and wondered why I ever used anything else
22:58 masterofmonks The first keyboard I ever owned belonged to a Kaypro.
22:58 Cprossu thus began me buying up all the model M's from the thrift shops years ago
22:58 Cprossu I have a shit ton now
22:58 Cprossu good to go and for parts
22:58 Cheezmo I've been trying to find some replacement mitsumi keys for mine :(
22:59 Cprossu I've even sealed 2 of them ready to go after cleaning
22:59 masterofmonks Did you do an USB conversion.
22:59 Cheezmo my left arrow had molten solder hit it :/
22:59 masterofmonks ?
22:59 Cprossu (who says the foodsaver has to save food?)
22:59 Cprossu masterofmonks: his keycap/keycaps are fucked
23:00 Cprossu if I read that right
23:00 Cprossu I've had molten solder hit this thing... it doesn't do anything to it
23:00 Cheezmo nice
23:01 master0fmonks joined #thegeekgroup
23:01 Cprossu and the worst keyboard I got from an auto shop
23:01 Cprossu all blackened to hell
23:01 Cheezmo well, it's only a minor mar on the key that I need to touch to actually notice, but I'm a bit OCD there
23:01 Cheezmo :P
23:01 Cprossu still came perfectly clean
23:01 Cprossu hell this one that I am typing on used to be at American Express
23:02 Cprossu and was repaired professionally at least twice
23:02 Cheezmo gotta love us with our top of the line computers, and old keyboards
23:02 Cprossu (and once by me to fix the last repair guy's shotty work)
23:02 Cprossu the new keyboards suck ass
23:02 Cheezmo I know :(
23:02 Cheezmo they don't feel right
23:03 Cprossu though you can buy 'good' ones from unicomp now
23:03 Cheezmo maybe one day I'll train myself to use Dvorak too
23:03 Cprossu and das keyboard has mechanical switches now
23:03 Cprossu dvorak is for the birds imo
23:03 Cheezmo mine has rubber nipples on membrane for switches :V
23:03 Cprossu I gave it a shot and was unhappy
23:03 Obtuse dvorak would be great it you learned on it
23:04 Cprossu didn't really improve my comfort or typing and it made my right hand cramp
23:04 Cheezmo well, I've heard Dvorak can speed up typing a lot, since qwerty was meant to slow down typing to stop typewriters from jamming
23:04 Cprossu Cheezmo: wrong
23:04 Cheezmo nu?
23:04 Cprossu nope
23:04 Cprossu common misconception
23:04 Obtuse i'm too god damn lazy to spend the effort to learn dvorak
23:04 Cprossu it wasn't meant to slow down typing, it was meant to move the typefaces away from eachother
23:04 Cheezmo Obtuse: that's my reasons too
23:04 Cprossu because of how typerwriters work
23:04 Obtuse plus, half the time my thoughts are the thing keeping the words from being entered quickly
23:05 Obtuse not my typing
23:05 * wannabe1987 helps her 10 year old sister with homework via google docs....
23:05 wannabe1987 SO MUCH TECHNOLOGY!
23:05 Cprossu remember all the typefaces in a traditional typerwriter have to go to the same space
23:05 tonsofpcs huh?
23:05 Cprossu that means if you put 2 commonly used letters together it'll jam easier
23:05 masterofmonks The problem is plain to see, too much technology, machines to save our lives, machiens to humanize.
23:05 Cheezmo I rmember back in boyscouts, we did an IRC jamboree thing, and we had a voice call with some Aussie, and there was a 7-second delay
23:05 Cprossu I learned how to type on a underwood manual typerwriter
23:05 masterofmonks I love old type writers.
23:06 tonsofpcs I learned how to type on a keyboard
23:06 Cprossu http://imgs.inkfrog.com/pix/UncleDearest/Vintage_1923_Fisher_Underwood_No_5_Manual_Typewriter.jpg
23:06 masterofmonks Then again, I am a fan of steampunk.
23:06 tonsofpcs what the keyboard is attached to doesn't matter quite as much
23:06 Cprossu my model was around the same year
23:06 Cprossu anyway point being is because all the levers were mechanical
23:06 dbshortwave o.o
23:07 Cprossu the only way to avoid two frequently used hammers from striking eachother
23:07 Obtuse I want a commodore 64 for a keyboard
23:07 Cprossu was to physically move them
23:07 Cprossu QWERTY did not _slow down typing_ at all, nor was it supposed to
23:07 Cheezmo I have some 1950's aircraft radios I need to tinker with one day and see if I can get em running...
23:07 Cheezmo so many tuuuubes
23:07 tonsofpcs masterofmonks: we had someone in the office asking for a typewriter last week.  I told her that I had one at home if she didn't have one.  I got a reply "why do you have one?"... i kinda wanted to reply "why don't you?"
23:07 Cheezmo haha
23:07 dbshortwave lol
23:07 masterofmonks tonsofpcs: Exactly.
23:08 Cprossu rofl.
23:08 tonsofpcs err, if she didn't find one
23:08 masterofmonks It's like sewing machines...
23:08 Cprossu anyway underwoods and royal typerwriters taught me how to abuse keyboards
23:08 Cprossu thus my love for IBM model M's
23:08 masterofmonks If I could find an old singer treadle machine I would be in heaven
23:08 Cprossu which were built to transition people from typerwriters to computers
23:09 tonsofpcs not exactly
23:09 Cprossu well the Model F's were anyway
23:09 Cprossu and the wheelwriter's keyboard too
23:09 Cprossu as opposed to IBM selectrics which had a hair trigger on their keys
23:09 tonsofpcs they built selectrics, they then built a stand-alone selectric keyboard that evolved into the PC keyboard...
23:10 tonsofpcs not all selectrics were 'quiet touch' or whatever they called them
23:10 Cprossu no the selectric has a VERY different feel to it tonsofpcs
23:10 Cprossu all of mine are
23:10 Cprossu including the earliest model I've got
23:11 Cprossu you can literally shred paper with that one
23:11 Cheezmo If you want an awkward keyboard, go get a \$1500 Optimus... They look great with animated keys and all, but the keys are huge and have like no resistance :P
23:12 Cprossu lol I'd just get one of those shitty dell/compaq keyboards that use the laptop keys
23:12 Cprossu those fucking suck
23:12 Cheezmo lol
23:12 Cheezmo I hate laptop keys, especially for multi-tapping
23:12 Cprossu when you pound your fist into it after a night of getting keys wrong
23:12 Cprossu 20 of them pop off
23:13 Cheezmo and we all know laptop keys... they rarely go back on right
23:13 Cprossu I do like the OLD ibm laptop keyboards
23:13 Cprossu they felt pretty nice
23:13 Cprossu I can get em back on right
23:13 Cprossu doesn't mean I want to
23:13 Ponko right back
23:14 Cprossu http://www.mkraus.homepage.t-online.de/museum/geraetekarten/laptops/ibm/l40sx/IBM%20Portable%20Museum-Dateien/8543-scale.gif
23:14 Cprossu ^ best laptop keyboard I ever used
23:14 Cprossu was on that sucker
23:15 Cheezmo lol nice
23:15 Cheezmo er, the big or small?
23:15 Cprossu big
23:15 Cprossu the white IBM ps/2 clamshell
23:15 Cprossu (386 with a 387 math co I might add)
23:15 Cheezmo ohoho
23:16 Cprossu I debate every time I dig it out
23:16 Cprossu on what to do to make that keyboard 'portable'
23:16 Cheezmo http://www.classiccmp.org/dunfield/pc/h/t2200sx.jpg
23:17 Cprossu IBM type 8543 for anyone wondering
23:17 mantere_ joined #thegeekgroup
23:17 Cheezmo I had 4 of these suckers a long time ago... I really should have held onto them :(
23:17 dbshortwave least 1
23:18 Cheezmo they worked great, and I was able to play DOS Tetris on em
23:18 dbshortwave sweet
23:18 Cheezmo ended up doing autopsies for curiosity on the lot :/
23:19 Cprossu you know it's been a while since I last booted my 286 desktop
23:19 Cprossu every time I boot it up a new thing is wrong with it
23:20 Cheezmo lol
23:21 Cprossu do you have any idea how hard it is to find another 20MB conner IDE 3.5" hard drive for an example?
23:21 Cheezmo o.o
23:21 Cheezmo likely a bugger
23:21 Hackbat gah
23:21 dbshortwave lol
23:21 Hackbat they're pulling the stitches out of a cat's leg downstairs
23:21 dbshortwave i have 3
23:21 dbshortwave wait
23:21 Cprossu was gonna say
23:21 dbshortwave 200mb i has
23:21 Cprossu bios won't handle over 40 =P
23:22 Cheezmo I was cleaning out a crack house once and found an old Commodore computer, but I wasn't allowed to take it, but I managed to smuggle out an old Seagate 12MB HDD out of it
23:22 Cheezmo 5.25" too
23:22 Cprossu hrmmm you sure about that?
23:22 dbshortwave hol crap
23:22 Cprossu full height or half?
23:22 Cheezmo half
23:22 Cprossu then it wasn't 12
23:22 Cheezmo I had a full-height a long time ago
23:22 Cheezmo pretty sure it was
23:23 Cheezmo lemme try and find it again
23:23 Cprossu afaik if it was 5.25 and seagate and HH your minimum was 20
23:23 Cprossu MFM though right?
23:23 Cheezmo may have been 20 then...
23:23 Cprossu 20 or 25 is my bet
23:23 Cprossu does ST-225 ring a bell?
23:24 Cprossu great hdd.
23:24 Cprossu did it have a little blue cover over the spindle bearing?
23:24 Cheezmo Pretty sure it was the ST-251, because I found it on display at the Smithsonian :D
23:24 dbshortwave ive got a bigfoot in the basement somewhere
23:24 Cprossu 251 is a great drive heh
23:24 Cprossu 41-42mb you know
23:24 dbshortwave 5.25
23:24 dbshortwave 6.3gb
23:25 Cprossu I have a 2.5
23:25 Cprossu bigfoot
23:25 Cprossu those are noisy, slow, and ... they suck at reliablility
23:25 Cprossu because of factory contamination during production
23:25 Cheezmo the Seagate is down in Gen 4 that I found, but the pics aren't loading :/
23:26 Cprossu here have fun Cheezmo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0huAoKUzGg

23:28 Cprossu uh...
23:28 Cprossu BIG
23:28 Cheezmo haha
23:28 dbshortwave LOL
23:28 Cprossu the drive they fit was the size of a washing machine
23:29 Cheezmo On the topic of big, I have a nice colelction of Laserdiscs ;D
23:29 Cprossu I bet I have more than you
23:29 Cheezmo likely

23:29 Cprossu I hate keeping my players working
23:29 Cheezmo do you have Metropolis, or the Godfather collector's box-set? :P

23:31 Seroster =D
23:31 Cheezmo would cost almost as the copy of Metropolis I bought
23:32 Cheezmo \$75
23:32 Cheezmo after shipping
23:32 Cheezmo 1985 remaster on LD
23:32 Cheezmo great movie
23:32 Cprossu my evil dead 2 disc is not blood red, it's laserdisc color.
23:32 Cheezmo might be a collector's edition
23:33 Cprossu anything on discovision I avoid
23:33 Cprossu fucking bit rot
23:33 Seroster SparkyProjects, My mots convert 230v to 2100v
23:33 Seroster Almost a factor of 10
23:33 Cprossu or in this case analo-rot
23:34 Seroster So... If I feed a mot with 2100volts I should get more or less 20kv out, assuming the isolation doesnt explode?
