00:01 BobCat Experimentonomen do it
00:01 Experimentonomen last time i was over there, most of the active ppl were beeing jerks
00:03 BobCat Experimentonomen - I will tell then to not be jerks
00:03 BobCat you are an op there
00:03 BobCat or if not i will fix that
00:04 electricguy BobCat, just make sure that he can't kickban me without reason....
00:04 BobCat you are an op
00:04 BobCat no op wars
00:04 electricguy i know
00:05 electricguy but i have been kickbanned 3 times and i have no idea what i did to deserve it
00:05 BobCat everybody is nice on geekstreams
00:05 BobCat harden up!
00:05 BobCat heehee
00:05 BobCat we shall all try to get along
00:06 Experimentonomen and btw i dont wanna be op, i do not deserve it in any ways
00:07 BobCat you can deop yourself
00:07 wannabe1987 ring ring ring ring ring banana phone!
00:07 electricguy LOL
00:07 BobCat but just ignore it, no one uses ops there lately. everyone has been very polite
00:08 Experimentonomen btw i've heard somewhere that freenode policies are to have no ops in channels when not needed
00:08 BobCat I have 80 ops in geekstreams
00:08 Experimentonomen dunno if thats true or not
00:08 Coderjoe that is a suggestion, not a hard rule
00:08 BobCat it's a suggestion because ppl can be rude, but we use peer pressure to be polite
00:09 BobCat works for us

01:18 NeWtoz well, DX wouldn't be shipping anyways today, so you could try tomorrow
01:19 LittleGreenFlame True
01:19 LittleGreenFlame I wonder if they don't like the billing address to be different form the shipping address?
01:20 NeWtoz maybe
01:20 NeWtoz I have come across 1 business that denied me for that
01:20 NeWtoz it's rare, but does happen
01:21 LittleGreenFlame Which would be a royal pain in the butt, because then I would have to have them shipped here, and then reship them to the lab
01:21 LittleGreenFlame I wonder if newegg has them?\
01:21 LittleGreenFlame DX is cheap though =/
01:21 LittleGreenFlame I can get 20 PAIRS for only $85

02:06 injektion To get the full nutritional value from sea food you have to have it fresh from the ocean not from a farm
02:07 injektion There's also a lot of pollution in the ocean and I really don't like the smell of sea food
02:07 Ponko NeWtoz: you have to agree though that was a great game

02:56 Seroster Now lets see how many idiots got the short end of natural selection this new years eve.
02:58 Seroster Ha, someone got shot with a gun, evryone thought the shots were fireworks
02:58 Seroster So criminals aint COMPLETELY retarded =)
02:59 Coderjoe "bullets aren't affected by gravity!"
02:59 Seroster I want to get a bucket of them and drop it on your feet.
03:00 Coderjoe my feet? I'm not one of the stupid people that shoot guns in the air
03:01 roadran422 90 Straight up in the air.
03:01 tonsofpcs my tv needs a degauss coil and a new flyback...
03:01 Seroster If the bullets are not affected by gravity you woudlnt mind me dropping a bucket with 10 gallons of laed on your foot now would you?
03:01 hopstafarian tonsofpcs, well is a switch to the 'shutdown -r' to do a safe reboot?...or someoother command that i'm unaware of?
03:01 Seroster tonsofpcs, I have both. Want to pay for shipping? =D
03:01 tonsofpcs safe reboot?
03:02 tonsofpcs Seroster: nah, you can pay for shipping.  Where do you want me to send the TV?  NTSC and ATSC tuners, 20-some inches
03:02 Coderjoe note the quotes around the line? I was quoting the idiot thinking. it is not my own statement.
03:02 tonsofpcs (24?)
03:02 * tonsofpcs will replace it with a flyback-less tv
03:04 hopstafarian tonsofpcs, other than the '-r' switch the only other options are to assign a reason code?
03:05 Experimentonomen tonsofpcs, a: i dont have any oil, b: oil is messy, c: oil is flammable
03:05 tonsofpcs hopstafarian: I believe so
03:06 wannabe1987 Ponko: do you want a cup of tea?
03:06 tonsofpcs oo, tea
03:06 wannabe1987 i'm boiling some water, have some for yourself

03:09 Seroster And it sure is
03:10 tonsofpcs Seroster: LCD TV would be flyback-less
03:10 Seroster I've heard people refer to the small high frequenzy transformer in misc devices as "flybacks"
03:11 Seroster I have no idea if it's right or wrong
03:12 hopstafarian tonsofpcs, basically trying to do a remote reboot into safe mode via the windows cli ?
03:12 wannabe1987 waters hot :)
03:13 tonsofpcs hopstafarian: oh, i don't think so.  not sure.  no windowss here and each version is different
03:13 tonsofpcs I *think* the server versions can
03:14 hopstafarian tonsofpcs nw, windows here either....that's why i ask...
03:15 hopstafarian tonsofpcs, what distros do you like?
03:15 tonsofpcs depends on the purpose
03:15 Seroster Goodnight folks
03:15 tonsofpcs Seroster: wikipedia has a passing note that the transformer in a SMPS is a flyback, but no reference and it seems like the note means to say that they are similar, not that they are flybacks.
03:15 tonsofpcs g'nite
03:16 Seroster What is the acronym SMPS?
03:16 eadthem switch mode power supply

07:13 Danz_ nope
07:13 Danz_ i plan on it
07:13 lwq1996 lol
07:13 wannabe1987 did you get it from djrock's vid?
07:13 wannabe1987 Danz_ where are you?
07:13 Danz_ no thisone is from scratch
07:14 lwq1996 oh btw you may need to change the begining with tgg come in
07:14 wannabe1987 ah.  ok
07:14 Danz_ i live in cincinnati
07:14 wannabe1987 not *too* far
07:14 astro73|alice you missed the back door in the astro lounge
07:15 Danz_ its not perfect. but considering iv never been there. im shore its not bad
07:15 lwq1996 astro you've been to the lab :P
07:15 astro73|alice that's why i'm telling him
07:15 wannabe1987 astro lives 20 min max from the lab
07:15 wannabe1987 i hope he's been there
07:15 wannabe1987 i've seen him in a vid.
07:15 astro73|alice and i don't think they've ever shown upstairs in vid
07:15 wannabe1987 :nods:
07:15 wannabe1987 upstairs where?
07:15 astro73|alice the other lockerroom, sauna, etc
07:16 wannabe1987 i think they have....
07:16 wannabe1987 i've been up there.  idk
07:16 astro73|alice I think it's slotted for staff areas
07:17 astro73|alice "I have no idea what this is" is a utility closet, iirc?
07:17 wannabe1987 i'm not watching that vid, so idk
07:17 wannabe1987 i'm watching a cb
07:17 Danz_ there is a few places i wasn't able to get
07:18 astro73|alice and that back lockerroom area? it's a mess
07:18 Danz_ the womans locker room?
07:19 astro73|alice mens
07:19 astro73|alice the stairs go down, there's a door to the outside. the stairs double back and continue down to the storage field
07:19 Danz_ so a tornado hit the woodworking lab?
07:19 astro73|alice on the door level, it goes to the showers, and eventually to the wood area
07:20 astro73|alice the doors to the boiler room are to the right of the steps as you go down
07:20 astro73|alice does bolt depot still have a door to tools?
07:20 wannabe1987 yes
07:21 astro73|alice the two sets of stairs
07:21 astro73|alice one goes down to the computer lab
07:21 astro73|alice one goes up and connects to the cafe level and continues up to women's
07:22 Danz_ this was made without maps too
07:22 Danz_ i got a PDF of the lab
07:22 Danz_ ill be makeing a more accurate version some time soon
07:22 astro73|alice there are no maps afaik
07:22 astro73|alice there's a PDF of the lab now?
07:22 astro73|alice that's an improvement
07:23 astro73|alice aaaaaaaand you've stumped me on those stairs. IDK what's at the bottom of them either
07:24 astro73|alice that half of the building would have the secondary labs in the basement (computer, electronics, and chemistry)
07:26 astro73|alice those robotics stairs are correct. They also go up and connect to the astro lounge and the lower broadcast lab (with the sound stages)
07:26 Danz_ ooooh
07:27 Danz_ i had a feeling there was some sort of acess there
07:27 Danz_ i saw some stairs but never seen them used
07:27 astro73|alice also, if you walk along the wall from the stairs in robotics, there is another set of stairs
07:27 Danz_ ill figure it out when i make 2.0
07:28 astro73|alice they connect to the other end of lower broadcast and the only access to master control (which is directly above broadcast)
07:29 astro73|alice if that makes any sense at all
07:29 astro73|alice there's PDFs?
07:30 astro73|alice the sound studio is physically pretty much the same as the other two
07:30 Danz_ yea
07:30 astro73|alice link?
07:31 Danz_
07:31 astro73|alice and the  you're right about the pendulum. it connects to the robotics lab at the bottom
07:32 Danz_ i have the map for download if you want to play with it
07:33 lwq1996 push button recieve bacon ftw!
07:33 astro73|alice i don't have minecraft
07:33 Danz_ lol was that you that just commented on that? lol
07:33 lwq1996 yes :P
07:33 Danz_ its like $24 and worth every penny
07:33 Danz_ anyone with a creative imagenation its like digital crack
07:34 astro73|alice and i'm so broke i can't afford the gas to visit my girlfriend
07:34 wannabe1987 o.O
07:34 wannabe1987 you are?
07:34 astro73|alice and my creativity has floated away over the years
07:34 lwq1996 i get bored with everything and it would just be waisted money for me:P for that i could buy a rifle scope
07:34 astro73|alice wannabe1987: I've been on a gas allowance for months
07:34 wannabe1987 i'm sorry :/
07:34 wannabe1987 yeah.  i know that
07:34 astro73|alice Danz_: I can comment on stairs and levels though
07:35 astro73|alice eg, the first page isn't very clear about up stairs and down stairs
07:36 Cprossu I have a fucking headache now lol
07:36 wannabe1987 why?
07:36 wannabe1987 too much alcohol?
07:36 lwq1996 to much soldering fumes?
07:36 Cprossu nope
07:36 Cprossu too much minecraft =P
07:36 lwq1996 lol
07:36 wannabe1987 lol
07:37 Cprossu
07:37 Cprossu and it's thundering now
07:37 Danz_ as fun as it was. im happy to be done with the video tour watching for hours
07:37 Cprossu HVL hvac 'installed'
07:37 wannabe1987 i'm going to be dead tomorrow....its almost 3 and i'm still up
07:37 astro73|alice unfortunately, Cprossu probably has Danz_ beat
07:38 astro73|alice given that's he's probably spent more time at the lab than i have
07:38 wannabe1987 altho, i started the vacation on 4 hours of sleep
07:38 Cprossu I could help you probably with mostly anything you need located
07:39 astro73|alice a few stairs and all of the downstairs
07:39 Cprossu I'm doing this mostly by memory but there are plenty of captains blogs videos with definitive stuff
07:39 Danz_ mine was built from videos (requirements for the contest)
07:39 astro73|alice Cprossu:
07:39 Danz_ however. i am going to be building a v2.0 useing maps
07:39 Cprossu astro73|alice that drawing is way off
07:40 Danz_ it is?
07:40 Cprossu yeah =/
07:40 astro73|alice that's what i thought the status was
07:40 Cprossu some of it is more off than other parts
07:40 Danz_ dosn't every building have a copy of its blueprints at the local town hall?
07:40 astro73|alice supposedly
07:40 Cprossu it's a long story
07:41 Cprossu there's exactly one copy
07:41 Cprossu and one guy
07:41 astro73|alice every building is also supposed to be to code
07:41 Cprossu that does ALL the work for the city
07:41 Cprossu you have to schedule time with him months in advance
07:41 Danz_ *cough* electical *cough*
07:41 Cprossu at least that's waht I found out when I was there
07:42 Cprossu the thing that looks the most off is the swimming pool area
07:42 wannabe1987 why does boden know how to put on a straightjacket?
07:42 wannabe1987 poor soops
07:42 astro73|alice wannabe1987: why ask questions like that? it's boden
07:42 Danz_ so other than that drawing. the best way to get a idea of what is where. is to visit the lab?
07:42 Cprossu the offices are completely different too
07:43 astro73|alice Cprossu: he got the offices right, though.
07:43 wannabe1987 i can work on making my own not-to-scale blueprints :/
07:43 astro73|alice mostly what's off is the stairs
07:43 wannabe1987 i will eventually, but um i work 2 jobs now
07:43 Cprossu best way is to look at the 'gutting' work captains blogs
07:43 wannabe1987 mhm
07:43 Cprossu the stairs are everywhere on this map
07:43 astro73|alice wannabe1987: having a structural map of the lab would be helpful
07:43 wannabe1987 mhm
07:43 Toastdude Don't go wannabe!
07:44 wannabe1987 where am i going?
07:44 Cprossu I have a few floor plans but they are from before the plans were final
07:44 Cprossu and also you have to remember
07:44 Cprossu 3-4 additions
07:44 Toastdude To sleep
07:44 Cprossu including the removal of some structure
07:44 Danz_ well. that can be worked around
07:44 astro73|alice it honestly wouldn't surprise me if the plans filed with the city were wrong
07:44 Danz_ can get a outdated copy. and have a tour. and mark what has been updated
07:45 Cprossu let's just say when you put it all together in autocad you'll be utterly confused.
07:45 astro73|alice god yes
07:45 Danz_ its gotta be one of the most comlex buildings ever
07:45 Cprossu here's a good example
07:45 Cprossu you know the lounge right?
07:45 Cprossu the door leading to the studios and downstairs mdh
07:45 Danz_ if you look at it from google maps. it looks like 4 buildings stitched togeather
07:45 Cprossu Danz409 it is
07:46 Cprossu and I am getting to one of those stitches
07:46 Cprossu the door from the staircase to the lounge is where two buildings meet
07:46 Cprossu and you know master control?
07:46 Cprossu the 'wall' of master control is exterior brick of the gym (mdh)
07:46 Danz_ yup
07:46 Danz_ i remember that part
07:47 Danz_ they ran a cable through it and it went out to the roof
07:47 Cprossu to make things more confusing
07:47 Cprossu the handball courts
07:47 Cprossu as they are today
07:47 Cprossu came about like this
07:47 Cprossu There was NOTHING after the lounge green door at one time
07:47 Cprossu they added a outdoor handball court
07:47 Cprossu they tore it down later
07:47 Cprossu they built the track then
07:48 Cprossu then they put 4 handball courts ontop of it (indoor)
07:48 Danz_ wow
07:48 astro73|alice Cprossu: where do the back stairs past the board room come out in the basement?
07:48 Cprossu they come out at a door
07:48 wannabe1987 they dont....they go out a door
07:48 Cprossu but here's a interesting factoid about those stairs
07:48 Danz_ i think its right near the door that exits in the MDH
07:48 Cprossu the other side of the stairs is a locker room
07:48 Cprossu (can't remember which one)
07:49 wannabe1987 i don't know which is wich :P
07:49 Cprossu;tab=Xl
07:49 BotSteve Title: Google Maps
07:50 Cprossu check the sattelite out
07:50 astro73|alice try that link again?
07:50 Cprossu the stairs go out to the little door to the right of the generator
07:50 Cprossu (little tent thing up too)
07:52 Danz_ i need to find a schematic for this power supply. wanna get it running agan
07:52 Cprossu but as far as I know the order was, pool was built with the building, the gym added later, the outdoor handball court after that, the track after that
07:53 Cprossu (along with the indoor handball courts)
07:53 Danz_ don't think im going to find the transformer needed...
07:53 Danz_ should probably just toss a computer power supply in it
07:53 Cprossu so you got that satellite photo to look at Danz_?
07:53 Danz_ one sec
07:53 Danz_ i got it from google maps. but i got a pic of it in the froums
07:54 Danz_ thought i did
07:54 Danz_
07:55 Cprossu that image is tiny
07:55 wannabe1987 I AM GOING TO BED IT IS 3AM and i have to drive tomorrow (today)
07:55 wannabe1987 night!
07:55 Danz_ could be bigger but quility wouldn't inprove any

07:55 Cprossu astro73|alice there we go
07:56 Cprossu and zoom in @ Danz_
07:56 Cprossu the right hand side of the three buildings is the original building, what looks like segments is gas pipeline
07:56 Danz_ zooming in does nothing a that point but bloat the pixals
07:56 Cprossu I have a clear picture Danz_
07:57 Cprossu on astro73|alice's link
07:57 astro73|alice turning off 45deg is helpful
07:57 Cprossu top most left hand side is the handball courts + robotics + master control.
07:57 Cprossu master control's floor is actually anchored to the last building (the gym)
07:58 Cprossu so with the top left building we have 3 clear levels,
07:58 Cprossu but the lower level is not connected in any way to the old building's basement
07:59 astro73|alice of the four pieces, the right 2 are the same building, yes?
07:59 Cprossu yes
07:59 astro73|alice the HVAC space above the cafe kitchen is at the same level as the girls lockerroom, then
08:00 Cprossu Pool/main building including lockers was first, gym was second, odd things happened in the area the handball courts reside in, and those were built.
08:00 Cprossu the pool area is higher than the front of the building
08:00 Cprossu and that includes the cafe area
08:01 Cprossu speaking of which I still have to build upper mech
08:01 astro73|alice it's been good fun picking brains, but it's 3am here. good night
08:01 Cprossu night astro73|alice
08:01 Toastdude Night astro
08:02 Danz_ cprossu you sed you have a copy of the old floor plans right? is it that PDF i showed?
08:02 Cprossu nope
08:02 Cprossu mine is really really old
08:02 Danz_ are you able to post them?
08:02 Cprossu as in when they were proposing the building to be made
08:02 Danz_ whoa
08:02 Danz_ thats cool
08:02 Cprossu I am not due to having signed an NDA with the grr library
08:02 Cprossu so sorry about that
08:03 Danz_ not due to haveing signed an NDA?
08:03 Cprossu (we might be able to make it all public in time)
08:03 Cprossu *am not able to hand them out freely*
08:03 Cprossu I snapped some photos of it but it won't help you out
08:04 Cprossu because they rearranged it before it was built
08:04 Cprossu and the drawings are concept and 'not to scale'
08:04 Cprossu Danz_ there is a roof walkthrough you should look at though
08:04 Danz_ suppose ill just hold on my more accurate build than
08:04 Cprossu I think the only way we're gonna get accurate though
08:05 Danz_ at least untill i visit
08:05 Cprossu is if we get some surveying equipment and some other stuff
08:05 Cprossu and figure out just WTF happened
08:05 Cprossu I remember stitching 3-4 plans together that we had to say 'this part describes this area better than this one' etc
08:06 Cprossu but when it came to the basement all bets were off
08:06 dr_jkl [Cngh
08:06 Danz_ whoever owned that building before the geek group... just wow...
08:07 Cprossu the people who actually did the renovation work uh.... lets just say they weren't known for their craftsmenship
08:07 Danz_ im shocked that some of the eletrical was in the conditoin it was in
08:07 Cprossu we have 4 flavors of electrical in that building
08:08 Danz_ redneck, older than kidwell, gank as crap, and correct wireing to last decade code
08:08 Cprossu the original cloth stuff from the late 50's, very well done stuff from the mid to late 60's, really junk stuff from the early to mid 80's,
08:08 Danz_ that would be the older than kidwell
08:08 Cprossu and whatever horrible things the later maintenance men did
08:08 Cprossu We worked out the electrical didn't go completely to shit until the early 90's
08:09 Danz_ about the time YMCA had it right?
08:10 Cprossu the Y had it from 1957 (built then) 'till 2005
08:11 Cprossu and it really went to shit with the churches/etc that got it
08:11 Cprossu big time
08:11 Danz_ chances are they didn't hire a real eletriction to do the work and took it upon themself to do it
08:12 Cprossu indeed they did
08:12 Cprossu assholes.
08:14 Danz_ wouldn't they be responsible for any damages done with there craftsmanship aka a fire
08:14 Cprossu good luck with that

08:25 Danz_ so not only is fedex tossing valuble eletronics around like nobody owns it
08:25 Danz_ they plan to increase there rates by 6%
08:25 PacketHumper doesn't shock me.
08:25 Danz_ and they wander why more people are useing USPS/UPS
08:25 PacketHumper Are you talking about drivers and the way they treat their equipment?
08:25 Danz_ yea
08:26 Danz_ soo many videos of fedex drivers just chucking packages over fences and down peoples driveways
08:26 Danz_ and yet they want you to pay a premeum for that service
08:26 PacketHumper My mother in law works at UPS.  it's pretty funny the stories of damaged trucks, pads, etc.
08:26 PacketHumper lol never thought to look for those
08:27 PacketHumper i wonder if ups does the same or if they cleaned up their act thanks to ace ventura.
08:28 Danz_ all shipping companies are guilty
08:28 Danz_ just fedex is the worst by a long shot
08:28 Cprossu well I am going to partake in the ancient tradition of sleeping

10:06 ajcc is DealExtreme a good store? I got a request from a staff member to scan/photograph my credit card and my ID, and put the images up up ImageShark... that's not at all a safe nor sound way to handle credit card information!
10:07 Seroster DO NOT
10:08 Seroster If ANYONE asks you for your card information and ID tell them to go fuck themselves with a sledgehammer
10:08 ajcc I'm not that stupid, but it's quite alarming and The Geek Group should not recommend this store!
10:08 ajcc that's what I did
10:08 ajcc but in an orderly and kind way
10:10 ajcc hmm, they have already pulled the money from the card :/
10:10 Seroster Tell your story, with links and screendumps, and send to
10:13 CaptainNiobe ajcc, if you didn't authorise the transaction, get a hold of your bank and have thewm stop them, and if possible, reverse the transfer
10:14 ajcc I canceled the electronic card, so it should bounce, if not I'll call my bank
10:14 ajcc but I'll e-mail the bank just to be safe as well
10:14 ajcc now that you mention it
10:14 CaptainNiobe this is why i never give my redit card info. if i can't use paypal to pay, i won't buy. that simple.
10:15 CaptainNiobe credit* fail lol
10:15 ajcc my bank offers a secure card for using with electronics store, the card can only be used once, and only with a limited amount, so they can rip me off, but they can't steal all my money. some saftey at least
10:16 Toast^Terraria You have a... creative mind Seroster.. :P
10:24 ajcc ok, email sent to the geek group
10:25 ajcc there's the two screenshots
10:25 BotSteve Title: E-mail from Deal Extreme - Imgur
10:26 electricguy i'm thinking about buying the book 30 arduino projects for the evil genius :3
10:27 ajcc oh, hmm, they told me to hide he first 6 digits and last 4... oh well, maybe I just got away in the heat of things
10:28 ajcc :/
10:30 ajcc I feel a bit stupid now, but this can't be a propper way to do things? Scanning your ID and Credit Card with hidden numbers?
10:30 electricguy why would you do that?
10:32 ajcc I'll come back later and hear what people say about all this. Take care guys!
10:33 electricguy that card scan thing doesn't sound like Dealextreme at all.... sounds like spam
10:34 electricguy that's not even how a real mail from DX looks
10:40 electricguy i have bought a lot of stuff from Dealextreme and it's great. i have never ever got any messange asking me to scan or take a photo of my credit card
10:58 Sgt_Lemming sending anyone a scan/fax of a credit card is a BAD idea
11:08 electricguy yeah
11:08 electricguy i really wonder how and why he got that message telling him to do that

12:14 CaptainNiobe sero?
12:14 CaptainNiobe lemming, tweezers?
12:15 Sgt_Lemming it's ingrown, i.e. under the skin CaptainNiobe, gonna have to attack it with a scalpel later
12:15 Seroster Imma have electricity fun!
12:15 Sgt_Lemming Seroster, how goes the MOT stack?
12:15 killawayZZzz yes my kids can read
12:15 electricguy i'm thinking about building a power supply shield for my arduino
12:15 CaptainNiobe eek... i can see what i can do about it tomorrow if you'll be at the space if you want lemming?
12:15 Sgt_Lemming CaptainNiobe, I am fine
12:16 CaptainNiobe okays
12:16 Sgt_Lemming not the first time I've handled it myself
12:16 electricguy a shield with a LiPo cell, a charger and a switching regulator
12:16 Sgt_Lemming downside of doing things that make me sweat lots
12:16 electricguy but i don't have any female headers with long legs... so i dunno
12:16 Sgt_Lemming electricguy, more than cell would be a good idea so you can get more than 3.3v out of it
12:16 Seroster Sgt_Lemming,
12:16 BotSteve Title: HexaMOTstack first light - YouTube
12:16 Seroster Thats how its going
12:16 Seroster Now
12:17 Seroster I am going to do the Big R
12:17 Seroster Research!
12:17 electricguy Sgt_Lemming, switching regulator...
12:17 Seroster A mot makes 2200volts from 220volts
12:17 Sgt_Lemming step up?
12:17 Seroster If I feed a mot 2200 I would in theory get 22000 out
12:17 Sgt_Lemming Seroster, that's a bit more than 2200 volts
12:17 Seroster Yeah, that is six times 2.2kv, 13.2kv total
12:17 electricguy i have the stuff hooked up here. a little Pololu reg that can take 0.8V-4.something V and give 5V out
12:17 electricguy it can run th
12:17 electricguy oops
12:18 Sgt_Lemming yeah I know the one electricguy
12:18 Sgt_Lemming I have the 23v version
12:18 electricguy it can run my arduino thermometer for about 12H on the little 1Ah LiPo cell
12:18 Sgt_Lemming 2.2v to 9v input, 10 - 23v output
12:18 electricguy my reg is 13x8mm
12:18 electricguy pretty much the size of a 3 pin pin header
12:19 electricguy 5V 200mA out
12:19 Sgt_Lemming yeah, this one is the same size
12:19 electricguy oki
12:19 electricguy they are pretty handy
12:19 electricguy then i got a LiPo cell and charger/distro board for it from sparkfun
12:20 electricguy can cahrge fropm a mini USB plug or a DC jack
12:20 electricguy charge*
12:20 Sgt_Lemming yeah
12:20 Sgt_Lemming I know the one
12:21 electricguy oki
12:22 electricguy i may buy a protoshield and some headers and make it into a PSU shield
12:23 Sgt_Lemming I have a project in mind where I will doing a similar thing, but mine will be using a single cell stepped up to 5v and then get the bejsus filtered out of it because I want it CLEAN for an audio amp
12:24 electricguy hehe oki
12:24 electricguy :)
12:25 electricguy an alternative i'm thinking of is to make a tiny box with the LiPo and regulator and that
12:25 electricguy to have for portable purposes
12:26 electricguy but a shield is also nic
12:26 electricguy nice*
12:26 electricguy so i don't have to have any cables and crap hanging out
12:28 mantere joined #thegeekgroup
12:28 electricguy btw, the protoscrewshield from sparkfun is fucking awesome

13:11 BobCat hey, that ajcc guy was wrong about dealextreme
13:16 tonsofpcs ?
13:17 electricguy BobCat, yes
13:17 electricguy i have bought stuff from dX many many times and i have never got the question to scan my credit card.. so i have no idea what ajcc was doing really.
13:18 electricguy buying stuff from DX is never a problem. just like buying form any other online store
13:19 Sgt_Lemming I have been asked to confirm a detail on the card, like Exp or last 4 digits of the card number
13:19 Sgt_Lemming but never been asked for a picture of the card
13:19 Sgt_Lemming I would never give them that anyway
13:20 electricguy exactly
13:22 electricguy i almost always have to specify something on my card. but i can't see any problem with that
13:22 BobCat they already have his numbers...
13:22 electricguy yeah
13:23 electricguy as long as they don't know how the card looks it's pretty safe
13:23 BobCat they never asked  to post his info on imageshark
13:23 BobCat he hallucinated that
13:23 electricguy yeah, that too
13:26 ajcc joined #thegeekgroup
13:27 electricguy wb ajcc
13:27 ajcc hey guys, so I'm not that upset anymore. about Deal Extreme, they did only ask me to scan the credit card with some numbers shown, and the security numbers well hidden. and also the id.
13:27 ajcc electricguy: thx
13:28 electricguy ajcc, about that dealextreme thing, i don't what the hell you have done, cause i have bout stuff from DX many many times and i have never got any mail telling me to scan my card.
13:28 electricguy so, nothing wrong with DX
13:28 electricguy and that meail you got doesn't even look like the ones i get from DX.. o_O
13:28 ajcc yeah, I think I've must have picked their own credit card thing, instead of the third party (but professional) secure option
13:29 roadran422 Hola
13:29 electricguy hi roadran422
13:29 electricguy i use their second payment option
13:29 electricguy which is a 3rd party thing, but not paypal
13:29 BobCat ajcc it did not say to  put yor info on imageshark...
13:29 Seroster So
13:30 Seroster Now I got power in for my seriestack
13:30 tonsofpcs they tell you that if you use theirs, every /n/ get randomly selected for an ID scan.
13:30 electricguy so, nothing wrong with DealExtreme at all :) just buy and have fun with your toys :)
13:30 ajcc BobCat: not in the e-mail, but on their site, the second image. the upload image bars stated that they used ImageShark, or that one should use it if theirs didn't work.
13:31 electricguy do anyone know if there is going to be any acticity in TGG lab today?
13:31 electricguy activity*
13:32 BobCat how about youe lab?
13:32 BobCat all i see is trees
13:32 ajcc tonsofpcs: well, it's not a way to do it that's correct and safe imo, and my bank strongly recommended against anything like that. unless it was an ID check at a physical store.
13:32 electricguy nah, i don't feel that great today
13:32 tonsofpcs electricguy: only people who may be going there may know
13:32 ajcc tonsofpcs: it's probably alright and all that jazz, but it creeps me out and I don't feel safe doing so
13:32 electricguy starting to get a cold, so it's not very motivating to do hacks
13:32 tonsofpcs ajcc: so don't do it.
13:32 ajcc I'd rather just use paypal or so
13:33 * ajcc just want to say: Sorry for sharing my paranoia. Deal Extreme is probably alright, but use their second credit card option, which uses a real electronic identification system, instead.
13:35 electricguy use this option
13:35 electricguy have never been any problem for me
13:36 BobCat just send electricguy an envelope of cash
13:36 electricguy lol
13:36 ajcc :)
13:36 BobCat well, i trust you
13:36 ajcc how do you guys type in the address to the geek group labs?

14:30 ajcc Sgt_Lemming: I won't, I told them to cancel my order, and that's it :) It seems that I'm the only one who got one of those emails, and it might be because I choose the wrong credit card payment alternative, there's another one with propper electronic id too. so yeah, people said paypal was the way to go too.
14:31 CaptainNiobe the paypal thing depends
14:31 CaptainNiobe i use it because i haven't had a problem with it

15:10 ryannthewhitehat yes, we need it over here because of the problems with religion. nothing like blowing stuff up to bring the communitys together
15:10 electricguy i want a hackerspace near where i live. but there is none, and i don't have money and space for one
15:10 CaptainNiobe problem with religion?
15:11 ryannthewhitehat catholic and Protestant, it so stupid but people get killed over it
15:12 CaptainNiobe :-\ see, i'm not religious, but that sure as hell isn't what my idea of religion is... :-\ some people need to grow the hell up...

15:38 tonsofpcs so what are the Watts?
15:38 tonsofpcs ryannthewhitehat: there are n+1 dimensions, where n is however many you think there are and/or can prove.
15:38 tonsofpcs because I can always prove that dimension n can be spun outside of itself.

17:59 roadran422 Hi
17:59 roadran422 Duck got delayed...
17:59 roadran422 He got a flat tire
18:00 Seroster SparkyProjects,
18:00 Ponko alright Experimentonomen
18:00 Seroster Wich winding on a hotplate will be the full blast winding?
18:00 eadthem photos  Seroster
18:01 eadthem and the one thats connected to high
18:01 Seroster Resistance
18:01 Seroster Highest or lowest
18:01 SparkyProjects The one with the lowest resistance
18:01 Seroster Tyvm
18:01 eadthem ya but hotplates dont use a potentiometer for adjusting
18:04 eadthem id be certan that modern stoves use a triac
18:05 eadthem as for older ones im not sure
18:05 * eadthem had hoped to find a schmatic for older ones but assumes it must be a transformer or reactor type control
18:07 roadran422 Warning. Non-Toxic doesn't mean edible. Ex. Glue.
18:08 Monkeh ...
18:08 Monkeh roadran422: Try eating soem cyanoacrylate.
18:08 Monkeh Have fun with that.
18:08 roadran422 xD
18:08 roadran422 Superglue!
18:08 Monkeh Precisely.
18:08 roadran422 JB weld is non toxic, but you can't really eat it...
18:08 eadthem you could
18:08 roadran422 At least I think it isn't non-toxic
18:09 eadthem the jb weld water weld stuff i used for the sous vidi machine  says drinking water safe   potable water tanks    hot water lines
18:09 Monkeh eadthem: That's when it's set. :)
18:09 eadthem it also says if swallowed get prompt metical attention
18:09 eadthem exactly
18:09 roadran422 xD
18:10 roadran422 You don't want to put part a and b on your mouth, mix it and swallow.
18:10 roadran422 Same with epoxy..
18:10 eadthem or not mix it
18:10 Seroster Ha
18:10 Seroster My internet didnt die
18:10 eadthem ither way   only safe when set
18:10 Seroster Hey SparkyProjects
18:10 roadran422 eadthem: Yep xD
18:10 Seroster
18:10 BotSteve Title: MOT feeding MOT first try and FAIL - YouTube
18:10 roadran422 Choking hazzard.
18:11 eadthem mot in to mot
18:11 eadthem mmm  both stock windings?
18:11 SparkyProjects Yeah, that was a fail :P
18:11 eadthem Seroster ?
18:11 roadran422 Seroster, now my internet is bugging out.
18:13 eadthem the primary winding isnt ment for more than 600V ish, the primary winding requires a high magnitising current witch increases proporitonaly to input voltage   this is unloaded current, the output windings arnt rated for the voltage that would result.
18:13 electricguy it's just going to result in a dead short no matter what you do
18:14 electricguy and the first MOT is WAY underpowered to power the second one
18:15 Seroster It didnt dead short
18:15 Seroster It just got very very hot very very fast because the core couldnt handle it
18:15 eadthem whats the normal output of 1 mot
18:16 eadthem 6kv?
18:16 Seroster 2kv at 1a, 2kw.
18:16 electricguy about 2kV and 600mA
18:16 eadthem right
18:16 electricguy depending on the size
18:16 eadthem 120 in?
18:16 Seroster 230
18:16 Seroster Phase-neutral. For us with manly mains voltage.
18:16 electricguy a idling MOT on 230V pulls around 2A on the primary
18:16 electricguy that, UNlodaded.. o_O
18:16 electricguy loaded*
18:17 eadthem k first of all get that ring off your hand now before you kill yourself with it
18:17 eadthem same for any other jewlry
18:17 Seroster If I get close enough for anything to arc to my ring I'm dead anyway.
18:17 eadthem everythign else seams decently safe  but that ring is a no no
18:17 electricguy so, if it's a 1:10 trafo.. that pulls 2A on 230V.. that would require about 20A on 2.3kV, right? XD
18:18 eadthem yes in theory that would be the requirements
18:18 electricguy you would need a pole pig to power that MOT backwards
18:18 electricguy LOL
18:18 Seroster xD
18:18 eadthem id estmate the magnitising current is probably .5A  but still thats 5A needed
18:19 eadthem the magnitisng current on my APC UPS 900  setup for stepdown is quite low  and its larger than ither mot you have
18:19 eadthem well core size
18:20 Monkeh eadthem: Mmm, big meaty transformers.
18:20 eadthem only issue is its stacked winding so i cant rewind the 24-36V secondarys without damageing the 120V primary
18:22 eadthem Seroster you could possably run a mot on 2x the primary voltage for 2x the output voltage but that is the limit
18:22 Monkeh Break out the phases!
18:23 Monkeh Oh right, he's stuck with single phase.
18:23 eadthem and we are all around talking killyou volts so id recommend adding plastic or ceramic standoffs to hold wires in place and working with a 2nd person who has there own cutoff switch next to them
18:23 Seroster Haha, Limits.
18:23 Monkeh Seroster: Haha, life.
18:23 Seroster No, he says the limit is 4.4kv

18:23 eadthem ?
18:24 Seroster A mot will go faar beyond its rating
18:24 mashpriborintorg hiya
18:24 eadthem probably
18:24 Monkeh Seroster: If you can feed it
18:24 electricguy Seroster, there is a fucking good reason why transformers for higher voltages are casted in epoxy or submerged in oil and got big ceramic insulators for the output
18:24 electricguy :)
18:25 Seroster As for the danger, I am well aware of the dangers. It's as safe as crossing the road. You are generally safe until you do something retarded, like, stopping in front of a bus.
18:25 Monkeh electricguy: Smoke, fire, blindness and possibly death?
18:25 electricguy yepp
18:25 mashpriborintorg HOLY CRAP PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE STOLE ME 80 euros
18:25 electricguy fail
18:25 Seroster Electricguy, Those are made to function reliably for years in bad conditions. Air insulation is part of the sport.
18:25 eadthem Seroster ya srry   i always feel oblgated to give the safety speech when a irc discussion involvles killyou volts
18:25 Seroster It's quite alright
18:26 Monkeh Seroster: Your future is either bright, short, or very much both. ;)
18:26 Seroster I got hit by 10kv yesterday
18:26 electricguy but they can barely handle the normal operating conditions. you even fry it if you load it down on 230V...
18:26 Seroster "Normal operating conditions"
18:26 electricguy ok, normal operating voltages
18:26 eadthem i know a clean desk is hard (looks around his own room) but thats also another safety consideration      if its piled your alwase tempted to reach over your experement to grab something
18:27 Seroster Normal operating conditions is in the high voltage circuit of a microwave =P
18:27 Seroster There they work for years
18:27 electricguy yes, buy they are not meant to operate at 10 times the power
18:27 Seroster eadthem, I work with a dead mans switch in one hand and the other either on the hotstick or behind my back.
18:28 electricguy MOTs are in fact really shitty trafos.. XD, just the welded together core is a bad thing :P
18:28 Seroster Stops the rattling eh
18:28 Ponko left #thegeekgroup
18:29 electricguy increases eddy currents and saturates the core very easily too
18:29 Seroster Yeah
18:29 Monkeh Mass production. Sucks much?
18:30 Seroster Microwaves are affordable, more effective than resistive heating and and they used to work for decades
18:31 eadthem ile attest to that   my parents have a 1980s sharp carosel  650W electronic control
18:31 eadthem the thing wont die
18:32 Seroster Mine is the corpse of components from five different mos
18:32 Nam3o 30 x 20 array uses 600 LEDs exactly
18:32 Nam3o each 1200 ohm resistor dissipates 480 mW
18:32 Nam3o together, all resistors dissipate 9600 mW
18:32 roadran422|dead I'm not daed.
18:32 roadran422|dead *dead
18:32 Nam3o together, the diodes dissipate 38400 mW
18:32 Nam3o total power dissipated by the array is 48000 mW
18:32 Nam3o the array draws current of 400 mA from the source
18:33 eadthem Nam3o arry     display or light ?
18:33 Nam3o 120V power light
18:33 eadthem ya they work diffrently than that
18:33 Nam3o i want it to be the size of a two liter
18:33 eadthem there arnt any resistors to start with
18:34 eadthem well maby 1 or 2
18:34 Nam3o
18:34 BotSteve Title: LED series parallel array wizard

18:34 Nam3o 20 current
18:34 eadthem typical
18:35 Nam3o 600 LEDs
18:35 Nam3o Solution 7: 30 x 20 array uses 600 LEDs exactly
18:36 Nam3o BRB
18:38 Mr joined #thegeekgroup
18:39 eadthem
18:40 eadthem
18:42 eadthem thats 53 leds per string
18:42 eadthem iirc 90-95% efficancy     only using a lm317 regulator and 63 ohm resistor
18:42 eadthem this is how chrismas light led strings work
18:42 electricguy not the best circuit, but that works
18:42 eadthem only they dont use caps
18:43 eadthem ya PF isnt great
18:43 eadthem about .6 iirc
18:43 eadthem if you leave off the caps it adds .1 to PF
18:43 eadthem but adds alot of flicker
18:43 Nam3o why is one better than the other
18:43 eadthem ?
18:43 electricguy and if one LED fails it kills the whole chain, and that can happen fairly easy
18:44 Nam3o O
18:44 eadthem in chrismas lights
18:44 eadthem not in a bulb
18:45 Nam3o so if one LED dies then i will lose a string of 30
18:45 hranz joined #thegeekgroup
18:45 electricguy yes
18:45 electricguy and not the most fun job to find the dead one.. XD
18:45 eadthem so if you want 600 lights you need only about 11 of these circuts  ( F1 C4 R1 U1 and led string, the rest will work for all of them.
18:45 Nam3o right
18:45 eadthem yes but 1 led dosent fail that often
18:46 eadthem not unless you abuse them
18:46 eadthem in chrismas lights its typicaly wireing problems more than anything or  raw mechancial abuse
18:46 eadthem if the whole thing is solderd to 1 PCB thers no issue
18:48 Monkeh No different to losing strings of conventional lights, except LEDs don't fail nearly as often.
18:48 Nam3o I going to make the whole thing the size of a two liter bottle
18:48 eadthem right
18:48 Nam3o am*
18:48 eadthem ergo unless you solder a led backwards  there isnt a good chance of the string failing
18:49 Monkeh I did that the other day :{
18:49 Monkeh Very confusing LED.
18:49 Nam3o when done I want to be able to plug it in to an outlet
18:49 eadthem so best make it as long as possable
18:49 eadthem err led string lenght
18:49 injektion Which would be better filing for bankruptcy or waiting 3 more years for the negative credit items to drop off?
18:50 eadthem bankrupcy sticks with you for iirc 7 years
18:50 Monkeh eadthem:
18:50 Monkeh eadthem: Which is the anode? ;)
18:50 injektion Well I have some "debt buyers" listed
18:51 Retep joined #thegeekgroup
18:51 eadthem woa
18:51 eadthem long leg is annode normaly
18:52 eadthem flat faces cathode
18:52 Monkeh eadthem: Indeed. But inside that looks like the cathode on any LED I've ever seen.
18:52 eadthem your internal structure is backwards
18:52 eadthem but that dont mean much
18:52 eadthem so they stuck the die on upside down
18:52 Monkeh eadthem: Only time I've ever seen it.
18:53 Monkeh So it got soldered backwards. Easy fix but annoying.
18:53 eadthem case and lead were right wernt they
18:54 Monkeh Yeah, except I can't actually see the 'flat' spot without a magnifying glass.
18:54 Nam3o how about useing 48v
18:54 eadthem you can
18:54 Monkeh eadthem: Oh, no, I can't.
18:54 Nam3o 15 x 40 array uses 600 LEDs exactly
18:54 eadthem but you shuld cosnider using 169V
18:54 eadthem if your on 110
18:54 Nam3o ?
18:54 eadthem or 120
18:54 eadthem mains
18:54 Nam3o 110AC
18:54 eadthem yes  witch is realy 169V peek to peek
18:55 Nam3o AC LEDs?
18:55 eadthem 110V is 155.5V peek to ground
18:55 eadthem 120V is 169V peek to ground
18:56 Nam3o wont they blink
18:56 Monkeh eadthem: Real men have to deal with 340V :P
18:56 Nam3o and burn up
18:56 eadthem assume you will drop 1V in the bridge rectifyer
18:56 Nam3o k
18:56 eadthem and 4v in the regulator
18:57 eadthem so that means if you have weak mains and realy have 110V  then you must have 150V strings max
18:57 eadthem if you have good mains like every house ive been in   then you have 117 to 122V
18:57 eadthem so then your strings are 160V   165.4V = 117VAC
18:58 eadthem and yes they would flicker without caps   at 120hz
18:58 eadthem this is not a huge issue    as florecents flicker at 60 hz
18:58 eadthem add a cap and the flicker goes away
18:59 eadthem 100uf-270uF was sufficant in spice
18:59 Nam3o Can you draw that for me?
18:59 eadthem wy sure  in 2009
18:59 Nam3o i can follow directions
18:59 eadthem
19:00 eadthem
19:00 mashpriborintorg joined #thegeekgroup
19:00 eadthem the first is the prefferd circut
19:00 eadthem the 2nd is minimums
19:00 Nam3o how many times do i have to repeat this to get to 600
19:00 eadthem there are 53 leds in a string
19:00 Nam3o like 10
19:01 Monkeh eadthem: Moar cap I say.
19:01 Nam3o ok
19:01 eadthem so if you want 600 lights you need only about 11 of these circuts  ( F1 C4 R1 U1 and led string, the rest will work for all of them.)
19:02 eadthem ie f2 r2 c2 u2 bridgerectifyer Ds r3 c3   are for all
19:02 eadthem now  Ds R3 C3 are optional  and you may need a larger cap or you may need to duplcate that part of the circut as well    it helps smooth out the remaining miniscule filcker
19:03 eadthem if you short out the led string   U1 LM317 will likely explode   a TL783 is the same part but more forgiving to high voltages  still it will explode if shorted directly to ground
19:04 Monkeh Seroster: You just insulted nearly every electronic component you have. gg, sir.
19:04 Seroster Yeah
19:04 Seroster Just opened a mot
19:04 Seroster And
19:04 Seroster ALUMINIUM! YAY
19:05 Seroster Aluminium painted with copper epoxy! =D
19:05 eadthem Nam3o quite simply you get away with a 30V linear regulator because it only sees about 5-20V drop
19:05 Nam3o Lunch time!
19:05 eadthem o and R2 F2 C2 U2  consittute a decent surge supressor
19:06 eadthem F2 may need increased for more than 1 string
19:06 eadthem but simulate it in spice first
19:07 Nam3o ?
19:07 eadthem it wont need .5A + 11 strings   thats for dam sure
19:07 roadran422|dead Is it safe to use JB weld, as an insultator/
19:07 eadthem i dont think so
19:07 eadthem its ment to be conductive
19:07 eadthem or least the metal kind is
19:07 roadran422 It is. O_O
19:07 injektion I don't know what would look better if a potential employer was to check my credit report a bankruptcy or a lot of unpaid accounts
19:07 roadran422 Then... If the toy car gets a bit toasty, I'm dead.
19:08 eadthem it is not conductive
19:08 eadthem but it contains iron fileings
19:08 roadran422 Ok. good
19:08 roadran422 Uh...
19:08 Nam3o is there an open source option for Spice
19:08 eadthem swcad/ltspice
19:08 eadthem info on getting it
19:08 BotSteve Title: Final Web Services
19:09 Monkeh eadthem: It'll be plenty conductive with enough volts. ;)
19:09 eadthem its free but not open source
19:09 eadthem Monkeh exactly
19:09 eadthem even glass is conductive at the right voltage
19:09 roadran422 I used it to glue a wire to a resistor, from a motor from a toy car
19:09 eadthem ya  battery voltages  your prob not going to have a issue with
19:09 roadran422 The battery was a bit toasty, so I think it was shorted
19:10 eadthem MOT NST PIGS   uhh  no
19:10 roadran422 eadthem: Ok, good, then my 2 yr old cousin won't die from a fire.
19:10 eadthem didnt say that   if you put a penny in the fuse holder as well then  probably yes
19:10 roadran422 ...
19:10 roadran422 Never do that.
19:11 roadran422 It shorted once, it will again, this time with the penny being the projectile
19:11 eadthem naw  it will be flaming naplam
19:11 roadran422 xD
19:11 eadthem if yoru talking about a hotweels car for kids
19:11 roadran422 lol
19:11 eadthem them things can push some current
19:11 eadthem so can RC cars
19:11 Monkeh roadran422: I'd say learn to solder but.. ehhh...
19:12 * Monkeh imagines roadran422 with a soldering iron
19:12 Monkeh FIRE!
19:12 eadthem we make controllers for rc cars that go to 160A 50V and 200A 25V    if the lipo pack in that experences an "event"  there will be alot of flaming napalm including the penny in the fuse holder
19:13 mashpriborintorg iron soldering is not that hard, it does just require practice
19:14 Monkeh mashpriborintorg: He's like 14.
19:15 eadthem we can learn him up on soldering pritty easy
19:15 roadran422 Monkeh: I didn't have one
19:16 roadran422 I can solder! It's easy!
19:16 roadran422 But, I still need few supplies. Lead free solder, helping hands, a stand, and something to remove the solder and plastic from the tip...
19:16 mashpriborintorg There's no age for learning soldering
19:17 roadran422 I sorta know how to... I soldered 2 wires to gether...
19:17 Monkeh Why on earth would you want lead-free?
19:17 roadran422 I cut a usb cord and soldered it back to gether.
19:17 mashpriborintorg no ! no lead free solder ! it's crap
19:17 roadran422 I don't want to shell out about 80bucks for a fume extractor.
19:17 Monkeh .. You're not going to die from using lead solder.
19:17 Monkeh The only fumes are the flux anyway and that hasn't changed.
19:18 roadran422 Well... What's the point of a fume extractor then....
19:18 Monkeh Just put a small fan on across the room
19:18 roadran422 You aren't going to die right? xD
19:18 Monkeh roadran422: Health and safety BS.
19:18 roadran422 xD
19:18 mashpriborintorg a simple fan pushing the fumes away is enought for occasionnal use
19:18 roadran422 Ok hahahaha
19:18 Monkeh Flux fumes are flux fumes. You're melting the lead, not vaporising it.
19:18 mashpriborintorg you will not solder all day long all week long
19:19 Monkeh Even my gas iron doesn't run that hot.
19:19 roadran422 Ok... My iron was 10bucks from radio shack...
19:19 roadran422 I have a simple fan...
19:19 roadran422 I need a 9v battery clip though..
19:19 mashpriborintorg washing hands after touching the solder is a good idea tho
19:19 roadran422 Lol
19:20 Monkeh mashpriborintorg: Eh, I do, but it's not all that important.
19:20 Monkeh mashpriborintorg: You get more lead and copper in you from your water pipes than you will from not washing your ands.
19:20 mashpriborintorg yeah XD
19:20 roadran422 Ok... I shouldn't be worried then xD
19:20 eadthem lead free solder isnt hard
19:20 Monkeh eadthem: Actually, it is.
19:20 Monkeh eadthem: Literally.
19:20 eadthem you just need the right tools
19:21 roadran422 Then, all I need, is more solder, helping hands, desoldering pump, thing to remove plastic and solder from tip and a stand...
19:21 Monkeh eadthem: It's crap, though.
19:21 * Experimentonomen plays some loud animusic on the big mono amp
19:21 eadthem Monkeh were 100% lead free at work
19:21 Monkeh eadthem: I'm sure. It's still crap compared to lead. :P
19:21 eadthem if you know how to use it it works as well or better than lead
19:22 eadthem you can never do 0201 and cerantly never 01005 with lead solder
19:22 Seroster
19:22 Seroster WOW
19:22 BotSteve Title: Huge 48-inch shell firework. [VIDEO]
19:22 Monkeh Yeah, but we're not talking SMD
19:22 eadthem dosent matter
19:22 roadran422 Smd is hard or easy?
19:22 Monkeh We're talking typical through-hole and wire jointing work.
19:22 eadthem smt is easy  with ther ight tools
19:22 roadran422 Ok..
19:22 Monkeh Lead melts at a lower temperature, flows better, is more flexible, and is just generally easier to use.
19:23 eadthem you atm have just lead solder and a 10$ radioshack iron
19:23 roadran422 My dad doesn't know that...
19:23 eadthem right
19:23 roadran422 Ues
19:23 roadran422 *Yes
19:23 roadran422 I think it is lead...
19:23 Monkeh There's no good reason to use lead-free over lead for your average home soldering.
19:23 roadran422 Ok....
19:23 roadran422 My dad needs to know I won't die.
19:23 eadthem no  if your a hobbyist thers nothing wrong with lead
19:23 Monkeh So he needs a high-school education? ;)
19:23 roadran422 He's a machinist...
19:24 eadthem stick with 6040 or 6337 and you will be fine
19:24 eadthem what kind of flux core do you have
19:24 roadran422 What's that...
19:24 Monkeh eadthem: Personally, lead-free has caused me some pain and annoyance.
19:24 eadthem lead alloys
19:24 mashpriborintorg and a solder iron for lead free solder must be much hotter, and burns fingers skin even worse than a usual iron :p
19:24 Monkeh roadran422: lead/tin ratio.
19:24 roadran422 Idk... I just got it for christmas for the heck of it...
19:24 Monkeh roadran422: 60/40 or 63/37
19:24 roadran422 Ok Monkeh
19:24 eadthem 60 40%  tin lead iirc
19:24 roadran422 Ok...
19:24 Monkeh 63/37 is better but it's not all that important
19:24 Monkeh Is it that way around? Can't recall.
19:24 eadthem nether can i
19:25 roadran422 How about 99/1
19:25 roadran422 99% percent lead, 1% tin
19:25 eadthem ya 6337 is better but not a huge issue
19:25 eadthem 99/1 would be lead free
19:25 Monkeh You're right, it's tin/lead
19:25 eadthem o
19:25 roadran422 Ok... How about 1/99
19:25 eadthem ya thats not for electronics
19:25 eadthem nether is that
19:25 roadran422 xD
19:25 roadran422 I won't be eating solder...
19:26 eadthem roadran422 there are 3 ways to handle fumes
19:26 eadthem and you shuld do atleast 1 of them
19:26 roadran422 I had a fan, that had a sock attached to it that sucked fumes away
19:26 eadthem well 4 but the 4th i hate
19:26 Monkeh eadthem: I've used both and I find 63/37 does work better, but that's also some _OLD_ solder and there's something different about the flux in it.
19:26 eadthem roadran422 ya thats not going to help  its just hideing the smoke
19:26 roadran422 xD
19:27 mashpriborintorg security glasses is a good idea, sometimes solder can splash, especially when unsoldering salvage componants with a little brute force
19:27 roadran422 I don't have money...
19:27 Monkeh eadthem: It's definitely rosin but it's a hell of a lot more effective than the stuff I've bought lately.
19:27 Monkeh Unfortunately it's 1.2mm wire so it's rather on the large side
19:27 eadthem it could be 3% instaed of standard 2 or 1% flux core
19:27 roadran422 I really need to get my self alot of electrical and other supplies.
19:27 electricguy got coffee! <3
19:27 Monkeh Yeah, hard to tell, there are no markings on it
19:27 electricguy geek crack! XD
19:27 roadran422 xD
19:27 Monkeh It's just wire wrapped around a home-made wooden spool.
19:27 eadthem roadran422  you can  open a window and stick a fan in it   prefferably having your desk for soldering at the same window
19:28 roadran422 xD
19:28 roadran422 I sit about 2 feet away from the window...
19:28 eadthem you can get a small AC fan realtivly cheep  typicaly under the name of muffin... by comair rotron  on ebay  and hook a dryer hose up to it and put that or a couple of them in the window
19:28 Monkeh Just put a small fan on low pointed above your desk
19:28 electricguy if you don't want to get the smoke drirectly in your face, take a 120mm computer fan (they are more silent) and stand it next to whatever you are soldering
19:28 Monkeh It'll draw the fumes away from you
19:28 eadthem witch is nice for winter so your only moving the smoke and not the whole room full of air
19:29 electricguy that use to help me prevent headache at least
19:29 roadran422 I do have a computer fan... I need a 9v bat clip
19:29 Monkeh Uh oh.
19:29 electricguy do you have a 9 or 12V DC wallwart?
19:29 Monkeh Next up: roadran recreates my PSU project and fries himself.
19:29 electricguy then you don't have to change battery all the time
19:30 electricguy LOL!
19:30 eadthem you can get a HEPA filter unit   somethign with a larger filter  say a honeywell   this is what we have for the heattable at work
19:30 BotSteve Title: Honeywell Long-Life Pure HEPA QuietCare Air Purifier, 17000: Home & Garden
19:30 Monkeh eadthem: Fear what little of my soldering you can see:
19:30 eadthem or you can wear nosh  witch is the option i wouldnt consider
19:31 electricguy carbon filters for deep fryer odour filters work very good for removing solder fume smell
19:31 roadran422 Again... I don't have money...
19:31 eadthem the honeywell is a great option paticuarly if you also have allergys  as it will effecitvly eliminate them as well
19:31 roadran422 I am just going to wear a mask.
19:31 electricguy roadran422, do you have a computer PSU laying around?
19:31 eadthem right  so i sugest the boxfan approch   or just get a wide short  double window fan
19:31 roadran422 No... Electricguy
19:31 electricguy crap
19:31 Monkeh Or just deal with it. Really, it's not going to kill you to breath some flux fumes from time to time.
19:31 roadran422 xD
19:31 eadthem;field-keywords=window+fan&amp;x=0&amp;y=0
19:31 electricguy well, solder fumes aren't directly dangerous
19:31 BotSteve Title: window fan: Home & Kitchen
19:32 roadran422 I'm going to get a mask and more supplies.
19:32 roadran422 What I also need is this....
19:32 Monkeh Constant exposure in some cases can cause occupational asthma.
19:32 electricguy i have been soldering most of my years (since i was 6) without any fume extractor... no problem :)
19:32 Monkeh Constant. In some cases.
19:32 roadran422 A screwdriver set. All torx (ones for hardrive), security bits, philips and other things. Here's the hardpart, no bits but a screwdriver with a long thing shaft...
19:32 roadran422 *thin
19:33 Monkeh roadran422: They're around. Might be easier to find a set of torx keys.
19:33 roadran422 I never could find any. All the pits are way to thick to fit in to the hole.
19:33 roadran422 ^NO JOKES.
19:33 electricguy yes, if you are soldering pretty much 24/7 it's not good to not have a fume extractor
19:33 roadran422 *bits
19:33 roadran422 Electricguy Yah... I would think so..
19:33 eadthem as for soldering irons  what you have will work  but you will find it quickly gets overloaded
19:33 electricguy but for hobby soldering and that it's not needed
19:33 Monkeh A cheap soldering station is a good investment
19:33 roadran422 A person with a soldering iron will burn them self for the first time.
19:33 roadran422 :)
19:34 Monkeh I've got a nice cheap 50W one, works great.

19:34 eadthem this is the next step
19:34 electricguy yeah that hakko station is decent
19:34 eadthem i recommend xytronic hakko and aoyue    all 3 are made by aoyue    do not get weller
19:34 Experimentonomen

19:34 roadran422 I am not going to get that crazed in to it.
19:34 ajcc electricguy: can you buy hakko in Sweden?
19:34 Monkeh What I have is.. literally this with a different iron holder:;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1325532863&amp;sr=1-14
19:34 BotSteve Title: Velleman 50W Soldering Station: Home Improvement
19:34 eadthem whatever you do   do not get weller
19:34 electricguy ajcc, no idea
19:34 roadran422 Why?
19:34 Monkeh Works fine.
19:35 electricguy and i don't want one as i got 5 Weller irons... XD
19:35 eadthem a weller tip is hollow
19:35 eadthem and heats from the outside of the tip
19:35 roadran422 Oh... xD
19:35 ajcc I got a Weller, it's better than a soldering iron
19:35 roadran422 Nice...
19:35 electricguy that velleman station is horrible!
19:35 roadran422 I wish I had 100-200 dollars.
19:35 Monkeh electricguy: Works fine for me.
19:35 tonsofpcs so I need a good way to sort out cables and computer parts (and store them for easy access).  Thoughts?
19:35 Monkeh electricguy: Temperature is sort of controllable, tip is great, it's heavy enough to stay where I put it.
19:35 roadran422 I would get a few power tools, screw drivers, and pliers, socket things like that.
19:36 Coderjoe i have a nice weller, which I bought from a local shop after my old radio shack POS one helped me lift traces off a circuit board
19:36 electricguy we had those in school. they are just a regular shit iron and a light dimmer.. they even got iron chunks glued inside so it wont tip over -,-
19:36 roadran422 xD
19:36 Monkeh electricguy: Pretty much, yeah. And it's fine to start with. ;)
19:36 electricguy yeah maybe
19:36 electricguy XD
19:36 roadran422 What is a good cheap inexpensive tool kit?
19:36 Monkeh electricguy: Let's not advise the 14 year old to spend 80 bucks on a soldering station he'll kill the tip on in an hour. ;)
19:36 roadran422 Good for opening consoles, and harddrives
19:37 roadran422 Monkeh: xD
19:37 eadthem a aoyue/xytronic/hakko is 1 of 2 kinds   for nicrhome its a solid chunk of copper about 2 inches long     for ceramic  its still 2 inches long  just as heavy and is heated from the inside
19:37 electricguy but after using a Weller iron you really start to wonder how you could use that crap.. XD
19:37 roadran422 Lol
19:37 eadthem weller is about 1 inch long and very light weight copper
19:37 Monkeh electricguy: Yeah, well, I don't solder enough to justify it :)
19:37 electricguy roadran422, good and cheap when it comes to tools really don't mix... XD
19:37 eadthem the weight of copper in the tip matters as much as the wattage of the iron
19:37 roadran422 Ok... Cheap and good...
19:37 Monkeh There's a fine line between cheap and good
19:37 Monkeh It IS possible to stand on it.
19:37 wannabe1987 joined #thegeekgroup
19:37 Monkeh But it's not easy.
19:38 ajcc I got one of those, not a Weller, confusing with this Vellerman thing.
19:38 eadthem also a 70-100W iron    now all of this is the next step up  its a 100$ ish step   but its what you will want 1 day
19:38 BotSteve Title: Velleman nv
19:38 tonsofpcs roadran422: crap from harbor freight
19:38 roadran422 I'm not going to buy a 100-200 dollar on something I rarely do.
19:38 roadran422 xD
19:38 eadthem exactly
19:38 wannabe1987 i made it home in the snow
19:38 eadthem if you rairly do it  dont spend money on it at this time
19:38 Monkeh ajcc: Again, that's basically the same as what I have with a different shell
19:38 Monkeh ajcc: It works. It's cheap.
19:38 roadran422 But I need a good enugh tool set. Few sockets, a few screwdrivers things like that... To open laptops, consoles, harddrives. And to pull things apart (pliers)
19:39 electricguy hi hi wannabe1987 :)
19:39 Monkeh And the iron in that picture there appears to have been extensively heated.
19:39 ajcc Monkeh: didn't hear your first comment about it :), yep, I can only agree
19:39 Monkeh ajcc: I'd love a proper temperature controlled station, but they're way too expensive for what I do.
19:39 wannabe1987 hi electricguy
19:39 roadran422 Hi wannabe
19:39 ajcc Monkeh: aren't you just running it too hot?
19:39 Monkeh Variable power and a stand which stays where I put it is quite sufficient
19:39 roadran422 I also need a psu
19:39 wannabe1987 hi hy
19:39 roadran422 Ok.
19:39 roadran422 I have a question that will stump most of you...
19:39 Monkeh ajcc: No, I'm careful to keep the temperature as low as reasonable.
19:40 roadran422 Efficient, Cheap, Reliable. Pick 2 of them, you can't have all 3
19:40 Monkeh Doesn't help that most of what I do is modify and repair existing boards, though.
19:40 ajcc Monkeh: it's about 185C for 50/50 solder
19:40 eadthem;qid=1325533183&amp;sr=8-50;qid=1325533166&amp;sr=8-39
19:40 Monkeh Having to burn through epoxy first is a pain in the butt.
19:40 BotSteve Title: CHIP QUIK® No Clean Flux in Squeeze tubes: Home Improvement
19:40 eadthem now thats the kind of flux you want to have
19:40 electricguy the Uni-T UTP3702 is a very good lab PSU for the price
19:41 roadran422 Brb... Looking at harbour freight crap
19:41 electricguy the whole back of the case is a heatsink... :P
19:41 ajcc Monkeh: it's really slow so you have to give it a while to heat up
19:41 Monkeh ajcc: My iron? Yes, I know.
19:41 eadthem i recommend getting that even if you dont do much soldering    its very good  and immesnly better than liquid flux or rosen jars
19:41 Monkeh ajcc: And you should heat it slowly anyway.
19:41 electricguy not neccesary to heat it slowly if the regulation is good
19:42 Monkeh ajcc: I can say fairly authoritively that my solder melts at 183C. As for the solder on the board I'm working on..
19:42 electricguy Metcal stations heat up in about 4 seconds
19:42 eadthem just a 2x2x2mm dot to a 10AWG wire,  tin your copper pad,    solder the wire
19:42 ajcc Monkeh: well, you shouldn't have any problems with the Vellerman then
19:42 roadran422|harbo
19:42 Monkeh ajcc: I.. don't.
19:42 BotSteve Title: 105 Piece Tool Kit
19:42 ajcc Monkeh: oh.
19:42 roadran422|harbo Is that good...
19:42 ajcc who's getting a new soldering station then?, I hear a lot of wining :/
19:43 Monkeh ajcc: I was saying it's perfectly good for what I do. I'd like better, I can't afford £150 to have better.
19:43 eadthem your probably not going to use most of that
19:43 Monkeh ajcc: We're advising roadran. eadthem and electricguy are hating on cheap stations. :P
19:43 electricguy a crapload of tools including a box for 50 bucks. nah. it's most likely crap. sadly
19:43 roadran422|harbo eadthem: It's 50 bucks, on the chea!
19:43 eadthem its a nice set but its also cheeply made
19:43 roadran422|harbo xD
19:43 Coderjoe I didn't know pittsburgh was in china!
19:43 roadran422|harbo xD
19:43 Monkeh Yeah, that set'll be a joke.
19:43 roadran422|harbo I'm not like removing screws welded on...
19:43 roadran422|harbo It's good enough..
19:44 Monkeh I've had sets like that before
19:44 ajcc Monkeh: I see
19:44 roadran422|harbo Few wrenches, vice grips,
19:44 Monkeh And I've found they all have one or two useful parts in them
19:44 roadran422|harbo Sockets, screw drivers
19:44 roadran422|harbo Monkeh: For what use...
19:44 Monkeh And the rest quickly gets thrown away or used as a hammer until it needs throwing away
19:44 eadthem lol
19:44 roadran422|harbo I'm taking things apart....
19:44 roadran422|harbo It's not like I'm doing rocket science
19:44 eadthem roadran422|harbo did you see the links for flux?
19:44 roadran422|harbo Let me look up
19:44 electricguy roadran422|harbo, that set is good if you are a hobby mechanic. ok, it's stills hit, but yeh, not suitable for electronics
19:45 eadthem i cant stress enough how much paste flux will help you
19:45 roadran422|harbo :P
19:45 Monkeh roadran422|harbo: In that set? The only useful thing will end up being the stubby ratchet driver and even that's questionable.
19:45 electricguy looks for something with lots of small screwdrivers and stuff
19:45 roadran422|harbo Ok...
19:45 eadthem just know that it wont take much   most things need less than a dab or dot
19:45 Monkeh Those little metal screwdrivers are hopeless unless you know how to fix them
19:45 roadran422|harbo The flux? I'm barely doing anything major!
19:45 Monkeh (which, btw, involves a blowtorch and a high temperature solder)
19:45 Monkeh (I really don't advise doing that.)
19:46 eadthem well keep the link   if you have a project involving a circutboard or PCB  id get it at that time
19:46 roadran422|harbo I'm just adding components, and removing them... Why the flux? xD
19:46 eadthem you can get chipquick a several places
19:46 electricguy Monkeh, i have been soldering for 13 years and i have never ever needed any extra flux... :P
19:46 electricguy other than what's in the solder
19:46 roadran422|harbo xD
19:46 Monkeh electricguy: Ahem, I'm not the one suggesting flux. :P
19:46 roadran422|harbo Lol
19:47 roadran422|harbo Electricguy, What set do you have?
19:47 electricguy ok, F.. eadthem ... read what i said to Monkeh
19:47 electricguy .. XD
19:47 eadthem :p
19:47 electricguy i don't buy sets with tools, cause those tools are usually crap... :P
19:47 Monkeh I doubt most people here use tool sets as such.
19:47 roadran422|harbo Electricguy.... What tools do you have and where...
19:47 electricguy i buy screwdrivers one by one, pliers one by one and so on..
19:47 roadran422|harbo I don't have much mula
19:47 eadthem when i buy tools i genearly get ace husky or craftsman
19:47 Monkeh My various collections of tools (I have like four complete toolkits for different things) are made up mostly of individually purchased tools.
19:47 Monkeh Good ones mostly.
19:48 roadran422|harbo I don't have the money!
19:48 roadran422|harbo Each tool is about a buck a peice.... Add them up xD
19:48 eadthem i got 1 set of tools from amazon right out of collage  and i imedatly returnd them
19:48 Monkeh roadran422|harbo: And you won't have the tools once those break!
19:48 eadthem road what tools do you have now
19:48 electricguy i have like 8 different pliers, 25 different screwdrivers, 3 different wirecutters... XD
19:48 roadran422|harbo xD
19:48 eadthem and what projects do you want to do
19:48 Monkeh I've had some cheap tools which are decent
19:48 roadran422|harbo Just taking things apart and reassembling things like that.
19:48 electricguy roadran422|harbo, a buck a piece for tools? XD lol :P
19:48 roadran422|harbo Also, the tools I have. A stupid ratchet set which isn't mine....
19:48 Monkeh I've got some screwdrivers I use for my electronics and PC stuff which are really, really nice, and they were like £5 for the set
19:49 electricguy my wirecutters are 20 bucks... :P
19:49 roadran422 xD
19:49 Monkeh And some nice VDE screwdrivers which were £20 for the box
19:49 Monkeh Also some nice chisels which were like £2.50 each.

19:49 roadran422 Can someone just send me a generic set...
19:49 Monkeh roadran422: Send me a generic wad of money.
19:49 eadthem get a small set of screwdrivers from ace hardware  shuld be around 10-20$ for a 10 peice set
19:49 roadran422 I have only about 50 dollars.
19:50 eadthem buy 1 good wire cutter and 1 good combo crimper/stripper
19:50 roadran422 Here's the low down on the things... A basic socket, a few screwdrivers with security tips. The one's with a shaft, few pliers and strippers.
19:50 electricguy yeah. a small set of screwdrivers, a small set of pliers and so on
19:50 eadthem buy 1 long nose neelde nose plyers
19:50 electricguy that's much better than buying a big box with everything
19:50 roadran422 Security tips as in triangles, torx, torx with a hole in center
19:50 eadthem and buy a set of security bits
19:50 roadran422 How do you fit a bit in to a small hole...
19:51 roadran422 That's something I've never got. Bits are way to big...
19:51 electricguy you use the correct size bit..
19:51 eadthem roadran422 what state you in?
19:51 roadran422 I'm in florida...
19:51 eadthem you have lowes?

19:58 jeremys the key is getting a quality bit holder
19:58 Monkeh jeremys: Bosch ones FTW.
19:58 eadthem the husky is what i have   we ahve 3 at work and i have 1 at home
19:59 roadran422 Why is that.... When everyone says FTW I think it means fuck their way.
19:59 electricguy but if bits are too thick to reach down in a hole they are still totally useless
19:59 eadthem for the win
19:59 jeremys i use a bosch at work every day.  it is small and powerful, and you cannot break it
19:59 roadran422 eadthem: Ik xD

20:01 electricguy roadran422, a tip when looking for screwdriver sets, look for ones with lots of screwdrivers and not the cheapest crap you can find
20:02 roadran422 xD
20:02 roadran422 Also, look for a set with many types of screwdrivers, but ones that are different.
20:02 jeremys thats the one i use
20:02 roadran422 Not like 20 peice #0 phillips
20:02 roadran422 In a huge jumbo set xD
20:02 Monkeh jeremys: I've used the Makita version. They're awesome little things.
20:02 Danz409 looks like each rail has its own transformer
20:03 Danz409 wow these componits are old as dirt
20:03 Danz409 paper caps
20:03 tonsofpcs Danz409: so you can just probe at a working one and build/buy one to match?

20:06 eadthem yuck   digital
20:07 Monkeh eadthem: They're really convenient.
20:07 Monkeh .. as long as you buy proper batteries.
20:07 roadran422 xD
20:07 electricguy i have a nice quality non digital caliper, works great
20:07 mashpriborintorg Time to go to sleep, cheers
20:07 roadran422 eadthem: I think I know a few I might get from the list

20:07 electricguy sleep well mashpriborintorg
20:07 mashpriborintorg thanks
20:08 Monkeh electricguy: I'd probably have to read most ordinary calipers with a magnifying glass, so..
20:08 Danz409
20:08 wannabe1987 why was there money in the trash can?
20:08 electricguy Monkeh, lol, ok XD
20:08 Monkeh electricguy: I can get precision out of a digital one which would be most awkward with a normal one. :)
20:08 Monkeh But you really, REALLY have to buy proper batteries.
20:08 electricguy true
20:08 Monkeh Do NOT buy alkaline ones. Ever.
20:09 electricguy AND a proper caliper with something claeed precision! ;)
20:09 electricguy called*
20:09 Monkeh Get silver-oxide or you'll be kicking yourself
20:09 Monkeh electricguy: Digital ones are really quite accurate.
20:09 electricguy otherwise it's like taking a crap boombox from walmart, buy some REALLY expensive NASA grade batteries and try to get it to sound like a cinema! ;P
20:10 roadran422 brb////
20:10 Monkeh electricguy: You looked at digital calipers much? ;)
20:10 * wannabe1987 needs to go grocery shopping before making supper tonight
20:10 electricguy actually quite a lot since i considered buying one
20:10 Monkeh electricguy: They're basically all the same thing from $10 to $100 from what I've seen
20:11 electricguy but i got a good quality mechanical one from dad instead
20:11 eadthem i dont like the digital ones because they need a battery
20:11 Monkeh Yeah, the battery is a pain.
20:11 electricguy we got a pretty expensive one in the garage, that one is much better than the cheap ones i looked at at least
20:11 Monkeh .. also, I managed to short mine on a cap and kill it for a while.
20:11 eadthem if they made them solar  they would be far better than mechanical ones
20:12 electricguy but, as with all things, there are cheap decent ones too
20:12 Monkeh It came back to life after about 15 minutes, but it was.. uncomfortable.
20:12 jeremys digital calipers are very accurate, if you get a decent pair, if you get one for $10, you get a $10 caliper digital or not
20:12 electricguy yeah
20:12 Monkeh I support the idea of a solar powered caliper.
20:13 electricguy good tools ARE pretty pricy. there is no way around it unless you steal good materials and make your own tools :P
20:13 Monkeh Let's develop, patent, and market one.
20:13 Monkeh .. Oh, hey, they already exist.

20:16 Monkeh I'll have to have a proper look for an affordable one
20:16 electricguy it better be good
20:16 wannabe1987 what kind of a price?
20:16 Monkeh To avoid batteries I'll happily pay £30-40

20:42 Danz409 yea... a $8 DMM... and the battery is very low. i got a bunch of stuff comeing in however
20:42 ajcc oh, before you guys lose the subject, the bad things about metric is that no one, absolutely no one, in Sweden knows how to do math with fractions
20:42 Danz409 the thing is. i don't know if its worth it.
20:42 eadthem i spent a hour looking for that thing when i bought it

20:54 roadran422 Ok... Nothing then xD
20:54 roadran422 How about 30awg?
20:54 Monkeh And they'll take the sheath cleanly off most normal sized DI wire or cables, too.
20:55 electricguy LOL! i stripped a 20 guage wire .5mm XD
20:55 Monkeh roadran422: I don't go that small.
20:55 Monkeh electricguy: And the advantage of that over my 1.5m? :P
20:55 Monkeh Er
20:55 Monkeh 1.5mm
20:55 tonsofpcs well, for certain connections you want a very specific strip length.  For solder-type connectors and PCB connections of small guage wire, you want a VERY small strip length and when making repairs you don't want to overstrip.
20:55 Monkeh Damn m key. Do as you're told.
20:56 electricguy none, but it's fun that it can strip that short :P
20:56 Monkeh tonsofpcs: I've not done anything where 1.5mm would be too large yet.

20:56 Coderjoe oh, and snow
20:57 Monkeh Okay, so SMD stuff and weird RF connectors used weirdly. :P
20:57 tonsofpcs yes, it is snowing here
20:57 roadran422 Monkeh:  I though 50ft of 30awg wire was a steal!
20:57 electricguy here is the 20 guage wire stripped .5mm XD
20:57 electricguy <3 macro
20:57 roadran422 But, way to small!
20:57 Monkeh electricguy: I can do macro with my camera. It's not on hand. :)
20:57 Coderjoe it is not snowing here. just the leftover 1-2 inches of accumulation from yesterday
20:57 tonsofpcs 30AWG? wtf you gonna use that for?
20:57 Monkeh Yep, that's more or less pointless for 90% of things. :P
20:57 Monkeh Again, for general purpose use, these strippers are ideal.
20:57 tonsofpcs we're getting lake effect off Ontario, long throw today.
20:58 roadran422 xD
20:58 Monkeh They'll do everything from little 24AWG wire up to proper sized cables
20:58 Coderjoe and we are in the studio autopsy set
20:58 smellme411 yay
20:58 eadthem i cant find the one i have
20:58 Monkeh ie. AC power cables and the like.
20:58 Coderjoe with the scanner still
20:58 killawayZZzz oh live stream everyone
20:58 killawayZZzz ah
20:58 smellme411 do u have audio from the set
20:58 Coderjoe wish they would take that POCSAG channel off the scanner
20:58 Monkeh As I said, they'll take the sheath cleanly off DI and flex
20:58 eadthem
20:58 Monkeh Most strippers won't.
20:58 BotSteve Title: Gardner Bender #GS-370 8" Pro Wire Stripper: Home Improvement
20:59 eadthem execpt i payed 20$ for the tool and a bunch of crimpons
20:59 tonsofpcs Monkeh: my problem there is that "everyday" use doesn't matter that much.  It's the "omg this broke and needs to be fixed NOW" that drives tool purchases.
20:59 Monkeh tonsofpcs: And never have I needed such a ridiculously fine strip for an 'omg NOW' moment.
20:59 Monkeh tonsofpcs: If I did I can do it with one of my many, many sharp knives easily enough.
20:59 eadthem the one thing is  DONT use them for plyers
20:59 eadthem they wont survive that
21:00 eadthem long as there used as screw shears  cutters srippers and crimpers they last forever
21:00 eadthem provided you dont say try to cut steel with them
21:00 Monkeh eadthem: I hate those multipurpose things in general.
21:00 tonsofpcs Monkeh: lucky you.  I've had to fix a solder-type BNC for a camera with 0 excess (I was shortening the cable by stripping the end) during a news broadcast.
21:00 Monkeh Especially as most of them are unusably cheap.
21:00 eadthem ya there not speedy

21:02 smellme411 yep
21:02 eadthem Monkeh what do ya got for crimpers
21:02 threebuddies Yes
21:02 Coderjoe an autopsy of a roboraccoon?
21:02 Monkeh eadthem: I don't crimp much, but I use those strippers usually.
21:02 eadthem cus the one i wanted to add  i cant find
21:02 Monkeh eadthem: They're also good for cutting mid-sized solid wire.
21:02 Monkeh eadthem: As a general purpose choice they work well.
21:03 eadthem i mean  not at the price i would buy it for

21:05 killakee but its not the same card
21:05 Coderjoe damn... I can't even really hear the beeps :(

21:06 Monkeh You're all deaf.
21:06 thegamer579 is there no mic in the studio ?
21:06 killakee hope there will be sound
21:07 eadthem k i added both of them
21:07 Coderjoe i could hear them on the speakers, just not in headphones
21:08 TGA I'm just hearing a radio
21:08 Monkeh eadthem: What we need to find are really small side cutters.
21:08 eadthem dikes
21:08 Coderjoe thegamer579: there are, but nobody's fiddled with the mixer to change from the scanner to the studio
21:08 eadthem those i know of
21:09 Monkeh eadthem: Yes, those.
21:09 Monkeh eadthem: Really, really small pair. Invaluable for cable ties, small wires, cropping legs on through-hole components..

21:17 Cprossu DIagnal KuttErS lol
21:17 Monkeh Dicks?
21:17 NeWtoz I know, but I just call them diagonal cutters, or wire cutters
21:17 roadran422 Cprossu: xD
21:17 Monkeh NeWtoz: I call them side cutters.
21:17 Monkeh NeWtoz: As opposed to end cutters.
21:17 jeremys I call them cutter thingies

21:23 dr_jkl they're fun to tease.
21:23 Seroster Cprossu, tonsofpcs, SparkyProjects I need help decoding an electrical symbol. It is a thing that looks just like a diode and sits between the two terminals of a microwave oven capacitor. (There is another diode that goes to case, as usual)  But this diode got a big diode symbol pointing to a small diode symbol like so >||< .  What the fuck is that? A device that only lets current flow in no direction? WTF?!
21:23 electricguy dr_jkl, sadly, all over the world! o_O
21:23 dr_jkl roadran422: Jessica.
21:23 roadran422 Ok...

21:26 Andyroo_ Oh dear, no sound from the set? :(
21:26 roadran422 Plug it in, and hold your finger on the terminals.
21:26 dr_jkl Seroster: you go both ways? ;)
21:26 electricguy this chat is so confusing.. hard to understand 2 different topics at once
21:26 dr_jkl siri_: i think i love you siri_
21:26 Seroster dr_jkl, You wouldnt even want to know
21:26 roadran422 That's how you are going to test it seroster. You put your hands on the terminals.
21:26 Seroster electricguy, THAT is why you adress the person you are talking to with their name.
21:27 Seroster Great fucking idea. I want to see you show how its done
21:27 electricguy pfft, only noobs do that ;)
21:27 roadran422 xD
21:27 SparkyProjects Seroster it's more likely a varistor

21:34 Seroster
21:34 SparkyProjects A photodiode has the sane symbol as a led, except the arrows point towards it.
21:34 SparkyProjects A varistor symbol is 2 diodes pointong towards each other, uaually with a line acrooss
21:34 Seroster Yeah, no, not a photodiode
21:34 Seroster This is a heavy ceramic thing, the exact same I linked to
21:34 electricguy looks like a HV diode
21:34 electricguy from a microwave
21:35 Coderjoe "short protection rectifier"
21:35 tonsofpcs SparkyProjects: really? Varistors are usually two stacked diodes in opposite direction, I thought.  I would think this would be a transiet surpressor
21:35 Seroster No shit electricguy
21:35 Seroster But it is a diode that DOES NOT ALLOW CURRENT TO FLOW ANY DIRECTION
21:35 electricguy *megusta.jpg*
21:35 SparkyProjects oops, yeah, like a triac without a gate
21:35 Seroster Seriously, what is its use if it doesnt allow current to move xD
21:35 electricguy Seroster, did you measure it with a DMM?
21:35 Seroster Not yet
21:35 eadthem i got nothing for dikes
21:36 electricguy maybe it's a dead component
