00:44 wannabe|tgg i wasn't trying to be mean
00:44 wannabe|tgg the computer was unplugged....but the whole building is wifi-capable, except for robotics and maybe a few other corners (?) so moving rooms shouldn't kill my wifi

01:44 lwq1996 AGAIN, you would think people would get the hint that its stupid to edit pictures of yourself using instagram or layers and such. i thought she would get the hint from my status about her RIGHT after she posted one before
01:45 astro73|alice nope
01:45 astro73|alice people are stupid
01:45 lwq1996 ive learned this very early on astro :/ i would people would get some common sense
01:46 lwq1996 i wish people*
01:46 astro73|alice ha
01:46 astro73|alice i would be out of a job

01:48 lwq1996 ive learned that too
01:52 hopstafarian the good news is, soilent green made from stupid people doesn't taste any better or worse...
01:52 * hopstafarian is a stupid person
01:53 * hopstafarian is guilty as charged, most of the time

02:13 Sgt_Lemming what's diddums (lwq1996) bitching about now?
02:15 Monkeh|Lap Sgt_Lemming: God knows.
02:15 Monkeh|Lap I seem to have developed an unhealthy interest in DMMs.
02:15 Sgt_Lemming lol
02:15 Sgt_Lemming fluke 187 ftw
02:16 Monkeh|Lap Bit pricy for me
02:16 foreverknight hello everyone
02:16 Sgt_Lemming lo
02:16 Monkeh|Lap Only Fluke I can afford is a 17B :P
02:16 Sgt_Lemming Monkeh, that chip tester that CaptainNiobe was talking about iirc is a 6800 series µC tester
02:16 Sgt_Lemming it's a HP if memory serves
02:17 CaptainNiobe i forgot to get photos of it last night... i'll get some tomorrow, when i'm at the space helping lemming clean upa  bit before robowars
02:17 * Sgt_Lemming nods
02:18 Monkeh|Lap Sgt_Lemming: I got the impression it was an electrical tester, not electronics gear :P
02:18 Druidic_Rifleman you know
02:18 Sgt_Lemming nope, electronic
02:18 Druidic_Rifleman I allways wished robot wars was morelike metabots :(
02:18 Sgt_Lemming eh, robot wars is amusing enough
02:18 Monkeh|Lap Sgt_Lemming: 17B actually looks kinda decent..
02:18 CaptainNiobe this is robowars, not robotwars...
02:18 CaptainNiobe australian variant
02:18 Druidic_Rifleman shhhh
02:19 foreverknight lol
02:19 Druidic_Rifleman silly aussie drink some fosters nd let the civilised people talk
02:19 * CaptainNiobe bitchslaps druid
02:19 CaptainNiobe :D
02:19 foreverknight is there a chapter in the dallas fort worth metroplex?
02:20 Sgt_Lemming forums would be a good place to check for that foreverknight
02:21 SarahM hi niobe!
02:21 foreverknight left #thegeekgroup
02:21 CaptainNiobe g'day wannabe :)
02:21 astro73|alice hi people
02:21 CaptainNiobe hey there, astro:)
02:22 astro73|alice hi niobe

02:22 SarahM hi astro
02:22 SarahM dinner is FAILING
02:22 SarahM i don't know why itsnot working.....
02:22 SarahM :/
02:22 astro73|alice SarahM: oh?
02:22 CaptainNiobe what's wrong?
02:22 SarahM meat isn'tcooked and it wont shred
02:22 HighMan Night all. Derp. I haven't been on irc for long...
02:23 Monkeh|Lap Sgt_Lemming: So I built a stand for my toy meters: https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-rsWjTxgWRvc/T3DQd78cHyI/AAAAAAAAAuk/MimZtG13S88/s576/IMG_20120326_212312.jpg
02:23 Sgt_Lemming lol
02:23 SarahM its been in the crock pot on low for 8 hours, high for an hour...
02:23 Monkeh|Lap Sgt_Lemming: They're still handy but a complete pain to use flat on a bench.
02:23 HighMan|Sleep What's the thing in the back ground?
02:23 * Sgt_Lemming nods
02:23 HighMan|Sleep Srodell?
02:23 astro73|alice SarahM: ooph, i'm sorry
02:23 Monkeh|Lap HighMan|Sleep: Uhm, a keyboard?
02:24 HighMan|Sleep xD
02:24 CaptainNiobe me too, SarahM :-\ wish i knew how to help
02:24 HighMan|Sleep Idk, I see something that says SRO?ELL
02:24 SarahM people still use keyboards?!  i thought everything was touch screen...i mean, you *are* in the future....
02:24 HighMan|Sleep CaptainNiobe Scrap and cook again.
02:24 Monkeh|Lap HighMan|Sleep: Uh, no, that says Duracell.
02:24 HighMan|Sleep SarahM I don't like touchscreens, even with ipads they have keyboards lol
02:24 SarahM noes!  HighMan|Sleep, this cut ofmeat cost me 12 dollars ealier today.....
02:24 CaptainNiobe umm, HighMan|Sleep, 9 hours cooking time is a bit long for that lol
02:24 Monkeh|Lap It's a spare 9V battery sitting on my throttle..
02:24 HighMan|Sleep O_O
02:24 HighMan|Sleep Ah, I gotcha lol
02:25 SarahM andthat was on sale
02:25 HighMan|Sleep monkeh: Ah lol
02:25 SarahM i swear i'm hitting the space key
02:25 Monkeh|Lap I think it's a duracell anyway, could be some other brand.
02:25 Monkeh|Lap I have quite a few.
02:25 Monkeh|Lap I think some of them are aerocell or sometihng, so..
02:25 Monkeh|Lap Same difference
02:25 HighMan|Sleep Well Night! Have fun with the (brick meat?) xD
02:26 HighMan|Sleep If they have the same difference, wouldn't they be alike considering they have the same differences?...
02:26 SarahM you'er an ass, now i remember why wannabe has you on ignore most the time
02:26 Monkeh|Lap Sgt_Lemming: Also, out of boredom and making any order anyway, I'm making a 9V reg to fit on the back of the stand so I can feed both those meters off a wallwart..
02:26 Sgt_Lemming heh
02:26 Sgt_Lemming we got a box parts last night
02:26 wannabe|tgg ahhhhh much better nick :P
02:26 HighMan|Sleep SarahM wanabee is you... Well, good luck!
02:26 SarahM you sure?
02:26 wannabe|tgg shemight not be me....
02:26 Sgt_Lemming including a whole bunch of 7809 vregs
02:26 HighMan|Sleep Yes. Yes she is.
02:26 Monkeh|Lap Funnily enough, that's exactly the part :P
02:26 Monkeh|Lap Strange choice, eh? ;)
02:26 * Sgt_Lemming nods
02:27 * HighMan|Sleep Nods to Sgt_Lemming
02:27 HighMan|Sleep Hi younger version of sgt_lemming.
02:27 * SarahM has irc up twice on one computer :P
02:27 Monkeh|Lap 7809, a couple of tantalum caps, some headers, PP3 clips, stripboard..
02:27 Sgt_Lemming ...?
02:27 wannabe|tgg ....
02:27 Monkeh|Lap Total price about £2.50.
02:27 Monkeh|Lap All to supply, uh.. 6.5mA or so out of a 1.2A 12V wallwart. :D
02:27 wannabe|tgg whats a wallwart?
02:28 Sgt_Lemming power supply
02:28 Monkeh|Lap Of the ugly hanging off a plug variety.
02:28 Monkeh|Lap This one being, thankfully, an SMPSU rather than a transformer.
02:28 Monkeh|Lap It's not that I don't like transformers, but they're WAY too heavy to hang off a socket like that.
02:29 Monkeh|Lap Plus, y'know, most of them are dangerously cheap.
02:29 wannabe|tgg fucking pissed off
02:30 wannabe|tgg hell, i'd use my fingers to shred the meat if they'd get clean....but we're at the lab and theres no such thing as "clean"
02:31 SarahM-afk joined #thegeekgroup
02:31 Monkeh|Lap How big is it?
02:32 Monkeh|Lap Sgt_Lemming: Also, after seeing a Fluke video the other day, I will never again connect those yellow toys to a mains supply.
02:32 egrsteve clean can be achived it just takes scrubbing and lots of GOJO
02:32 Sgt_Lemming got link to video?
02:33 wannabe|tgg no, the sinks fail and they dono't even let you get luke warm water...ist either BURNING HOT or freezing cold
02:33 wannabe|tgg i can't wash my hands that way
02:33 Monkeh|Lap Not handy, but it showed a simple overvoltage exercise, the fluke sat there and an 830B clone fairly exploded.
02:33 wannabe|tgg and theres no water down here anyway....
02:33 Monkeh|Lap Now, if it does that on my desk away from my hands it's free to but I don't want to consider the problems of getting an arc started at the probes when I jump out of my skin
02:33 egrsteve ok then don't complaine
02:34 egrsteve someday I hope to get a good agilent meter
02:34 Monkeh|Lap (just read an article on how two people died due to a cheap, shitty meter in exactly that manner)
02:34 Monkeh|Lap egrsteve: 87V man, 87V. :P
02:34 egrsteve I just need about $400
02:34 wannabe|tgg TGG-Zozo: btw that computer is *not* backed up.....
02:34 Monkeh|Lap You can get one free at the moment y'know
02:35 TGG-Zozo ok
02:36 egrsteve ? free meter
02:36 Monkeh|Lap egrsteve: Hang on.
02:36 Monkeh|Lap egrsteve: U1272A
02:37 Monkeh|Lap egrsteve: http://www.home.agilent.com/agilent/editorial.jspx?ckey=2133877&amp;id=2133877&amp;nid=-35718.0.00&amp;lc=eng&amp;cc=GB
02:37 BotSteve Title: Receive a Free Handheld Product with the Purchase of an E3600 Power Supply | Agilent
02:37 egrsteve this is what I would like http://www.home.agilent.com/agilent/product.jspx?nid=-34618.920238.00&amp;cc=US&amp;lc=eng
02:37 BotSteve Title: U1252B Handheld Digital Multimeter, 4.5-digit | Agilent
02:37 Monkeh|Lap You just have to buy an expensive PSU first :P
02:37 egrsteve ah ojk
02:37 egrsteve *ok
02:38 Monkeh|Lap I think that series starts at $800 or something
02:38 Monkeh|Lap On the other hand, that's a fair bargain
02:38 egrsteve ya
02:38 egrsteve I would like a $450 meter and a $2500 scope
02:38 Monkeh|Lap And I imagine the U1272A would make you fairly happy.
02:39 egrsteve now I just need some money
02:39 Monkeh|Lap And it's also lab-proof
02:39 astro73|alice TGG-Zozo: how is the increased music selection?
02:39 egrsteve it's very similar to teh one I linked
02:39 Monkeh|Lap egrsteve: It's.. a very complex meter.
02:41 egrsteve I know
02:41 Monkeh|Lap egrsteve: I don't think it's quite as accurate, but it can store 10k readings rather than 200.
02:41 egrsteve maybe
02:41 Monkeh|Lap That's.. a hell of a difference, actually
02:41 Monkeh|Lap They didn't exactly fill the 1252B with memory
02:41 egrsteve either way, I would like one of those high end agilent DMMS someday
02:42 Monkeh|Lap I'd like a range of Fluke kit
02:42 Monkeh|Lap They've got a device for everything.
02:42 Monkeh|Lap Agilent are very fancy but I've seen a lot of reports of firmware glitches
02:42 egrsteve I will research more when I have the money
02:43 Monkeh|Lap For now I'm happy with my basic chinese stuff.
02:43 egrsteve firmware glitches or id10t errors?
02:43 Monkeh|Lap Firmware glitches.
02:43 Monkeh|Lap The U1272A for example, they had to send every single owner of them a USB cable so they could flash the firmware
02:43 Monkeh|Lap Because it would crap itself on boot repeatedly
02:43 egrsteve nice
02:44 Monkeh|Lap Yeah.
02:44 Monkeh|Lap Also I'm wary of their scopes, a lot of them appear to run Windows.
02:44 Monkeh|Lap That does not give me great confidence.
02:44 egrsteve eitherway when I have to look more
02:45 Monkeh|Lap Right now I pine for a basic scopemeter.
02:45 egrsteve agilent spectrum anylisers don't but they network anilyser might
02:46 egrsteve rhode and schworts spectrum anylizers used to run windows (and had an FPGA card in them) IDK about there newer ones
02:46 tonsofpcs hi
02:46 tonsofpcs egrsteve: i have one that runs dos
02:46 tonsofpcs audio
02:46 Monkeh|Lap Cute
02:46 Monkeh|Lap DOS is not so bad.
02:47 egrsteve the R&S spectrum alylizers I have used even had a AF demod built in
02:47 tonsofpcs (R&S)
02:47 egrsteve wow, I can't spell
02:47 Monkeh|Lap egrsteve: We've noticed that. :P
02:48 tonsofpcs egrsteve: had a FHS3 but it died...
02:48 egrsteve I suppose that means it's time to lurk again
02:48 * egrsteve returns to lurking as to not drive tgg|wannabe crazy
02:48 tonsofpcs lol
02:48 wannabe|tgg wannabe's gone crazy
02:48 wannabe|tgg talk to SarahM-afk
02:48 Monkeh|Lap egrsteve: Right, you can stop lurking then
02:49 Monkeh|Lap egrsteve: What d'you use for a meter right now?
02:49 tonsofpcs i keep seeing algilents prices and theyblook nice but idk.....
02:50 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: Yeah, new stuff is.. expensive. Fleabay is the way (at least in countries where such things are available)
02:50 tonsofpcs Monkeh|Lap: np, they're prices are pretty good
02:50 tonsofpcs their
02:51 wannabe|tgg yay for faulty electronics!
02:51 Monkeh|Lap We have differing ideas of pretty good. :P
02:51 Monkeh|Lap wannabe|tgg: What's broken now?
02:51 wannabe|tgg my crockpot
02:51 Monkeh|Lap It has electronics? :|
02:51 wannabe|tgg its got meat in it
02:51 wannabe|tgg um yeah?
02:52 wannabe|tgg heating element of some sort, with a switch that tells it to go hot or low, i assume
02:52 tonsofpcs Cprossu: you do know that my first answer to "i need a part that X once made/used" is aleays "call X", right?
02:52 Monkeh|Lap Yeah, that's probably not electronic
02:52 Monkeh|Lap Mine certainly isn't
02:52 wannabe|tgg idgas
02:52 wannabe|tgg mines second hand
02:52 tonsofpcs electromechanical?
02:52 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: Pretty much.
02:52 tonsofpcs (thermo?)
02:53 * wannabe|tgg still doesn't giveafuck
02:53 Monkeh|Lap Bi-metal contact to switch the element.
02:53 tonsofpcs (i know what it is, just not how to describe the tech)
02:53 wannabe|tgg well, somethings broken
02:53 wannabe|tgg i dislike it
02:53 wannabe|tgg my low is "keep warm" my high is "low"
02:53 wannabe|tgg :/
02:53 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: Bi-metal thermostat?
02:53 tonsofpcs probably a loose wire
02:53 Monkeh|Lap Or is it bimetallic
02:54 tonsofpcs Monkeh|Lap: that seems too descriptive of the part not the tech; like a gear is mechanical...
02:54 egrsteve i doubt a crock has a thermostat, just different heater coils
02:55 Monkeh|Lap egrsteve: They usually have an 'auto' position to maintain a rough temperature.
02:55 TGG-Zozo lets just use thumper to speed cook it
02:55 wannabe|tgg ...
02:55 Monkeh|Lap Hence a bimetallic contact to switch the elements
02:55 tonsofpcs zozo++
02:55 wannabe|tgg why not gemini?
02:55 egrsteve the low high ones I doubt it the variable setpoint ones yes
02:56 TGG-Zozo it could work... just not quick enough for me
02:56 Monkeh|Lap egrsteve: Mine's not variable. Actually, I've never seen any unlike it: Low - auto - high.
02:56 Monkeh|Lap And I'm pretty sure it's actually one element with taps.
02:57 * wannabe|tgg loves her ipod :D
02:57 Monkeh|Lap I am suddenly struck by how strange and awesome a place this is that I can get into a discussion about the electrical design of a slow cooker.
02:57 egrsteve could be
02:57 Monkeh|Lap At 4am. Speaking of which, I need to sleep
02:57 wannabe|tgg sleep?!
02:57 Monkeh|Lap I know, it's so boring
02:58 wannabe|tgg that doesn't happn for a few more hours....
02:58 Monkeh|Lap But I do have to get some this week
02:58 wannabe|tgg happen*
02:58 TGG-Zozo egrsteve, so how can we speed cook it around here? =D
02:58 wannabe|tgg its only tuesday...
02:58 wannabe|tgg the week just started
02:58 Monkeh|Lap I set my alarm this morning, I know it went off.. but I don't remember it.
02:58 Monkeh|Lap I only remember waking up and seeing that it was four hours later than it should've been.
02:58 wannabe|tgg were you late for work?
02:59 egrsteve speed cook?
02:59 Monkeh|Lap No, no work
02:59 wannabe|tgg thats good
02:59 egrsteve steel plate and induction heater
02:59 Monkeh|Lap Just late for getting out of bed before the sun turned it into a slow cooker containing me
02:59 egrsteve use the large pad tool
02:59 TGG-Zozo that will work for the outside
03:00 Monkeh|Lap TGG-Zozo: Stick some nails in it?
03:00 wannabe|tgg ew

03:00 egrsteve or grill
03:00 wannabe|tgg contanimated meat
03:00 Monkeh|Lap wannabe|tgg: Hey, I can clean them.
03:00 wannabe|tgg ok
03:00 egrsteve once they are red hot we will deem them clean enough
03:00 wannabe|tgg ok
03:00 Monkeh|Lap Pretty much
03:01 Monkeh|Lap Anything which is still not only alive but not turned into gas just before steel melts, well, you're going to have to put up with it.
03:01 tonsofpcs Monkeh|Lap: note that the rest of us got into such a discussion around 2300

08:51 Sasha_ None. All I have is a really old PC which takes longer than vista to boot!
08:51 MadManMarkAu Huh, fun
08:53 Sasha_ Yup. Plus, it is against my will! My dad just told me that I'm going to get my passport updated, and halfway across the way, he just mentioned that 'oh, they might need some computer help as well...'
08:53 MadManMarkAu Haha, damn
08:53 Sasha_ And the best part is I have no clue what to do - it's a MSDOS application which won't turn on
08:54 MadManMarkAu If it's any consolation, I'm currently writing software that will be run on the machines of all the biggest banks in Australia. I'm kinda worried :/
08:55 Sasha_ I hate being put into these situations :P

16:08 Electricguy fuck it's windy today!
16:09 Experimentonomen same here :/
16:13 Monkeh And that's why cheap meters suck.
16:13 Monkeh Both my cheapos were reading exactly the same yesterday
16:13 Monkeh It's a bit hotter today and one is suddenly five counts low on all DCV ranges.
16:13 Electricguy lol
16:14 Monkeh On the other hand, both were running off their own batteries yesterday and now they're sharing the same 9V supply
16:15 Monkeh Of course, the one with the bad reading is the newer SMD one with no trimpots
16:15 Electricguy yeah some cheap meter got problems with that
16:15 Electricguy try 2 separate PSUs
16:15 Monkeh I can't
16:16 Monkeh I only have one 9V supply and I just built it :P
16:16 Electricguy balls
16:16 Electricguy cause for example. those cheap panel mount LCD meters can't share the same PSU. they are just going to spit out shit
16:17 Monkeh I'm not using them to check the voltage on their PSU
16:17 Monkeh I don't expect them to do that
16:17 Electricguy that doesn't matter. they can't share ground
16:17 Electricguy it's weird..
16:17 Monkeh They don't share ground with what I'm testing
16:18 Electricguy no but they share PSU ground, right?
16:18 Monkeh Yes
16:18 Electricguy exactly. that may be the problem
16:18 Monkeh Well, not for much longer when I find that spare PP3 clip
16:18 SparkyProjects Try them back on batteries, if the reading are correct, then is it possible to modify the supply
16:18 SparkyProjects What i would do is add a second bridge rect and cap so you rune one meter off each bridge
16:19 Monkeh SparkyProjects: There is no bridge rectifier and cap, at least not that I can get to.
16:19 SparkyProjects Though i would be concerned about 2 meters sharing ground when testing
16:19 Monkeh They're running off a 7809 connected to a 12V SMPSU I had kicking around
16:20 Monkeh I can always dump that setup mind
16:20 Monkeh Interesting, readings line up if I seperate the supply. That's nice.
16:20 SparkyProjects try adding another 7809 and cap
16:21 Electricguy they are still going to share ground
16:21 Monkeh Didn't plan on needing two. don't exactly have stocks.
16:22 SparkyProjects yeah, that would be a problem if you are testing something where the meter grounds have a difference in potential
16:22 Monkeh Electricguy: They don't now. At least on the supply side.
16:22 Electricguy no but if you add one more 7809 to power it from.
16:22 Electricguy but a pair of brigde recs would do
16:23 * Experimentonomen hugs his MJW21195's and MJW21196's
16:23 Monkeh What, on the DC side?
16:23 Electricguy yes
16:24 Electricguy you are going to loose 1.2V though
16:24 Monkeh I have margin for that.
16:24 mashpriborintorg joined #thegeekgroup
16:24 Monkeh A 7809 shouldn't have a problem with 10.8V
16:24 Experimentonomen g'evenin mash
16:24 mashpriborintorg hiya
16:24 mashpriborintorg I send a 10$ gift card for the blog computer
16:24 SparkyProjects Personally, i have several old wallwarts,  so depending on how smooth you need the supply, i would just make a supply  with 2 transformers, bridges, regulators etc.
16:25 Monkeh SparkyProjects: I was going for simple.
16:25 Monkeh They're just cheap meters in a five minute wooden stand
16:25 Monkeh Just didn't want to have to deal with batteries on them
16:25 Electricguy the the simple way is to buy a pair of cheap wallwarts from china :P
16:25 Monkeh Waste of money (two batteries every year or so or £2.50 on a 7809 hackup which will last forever, you do the math)
16:25 Monkeh I have lots of warts
16:26 mashpriborintorg I got an old echo sounder... wtf will I do with it
16:26 Monkeh I was just using this particular one because it's a nice regulated 12V supply (easy on the caps)
16:26 Monkeh Then again the only caps in here right now are 35V tantalums so that doesn't really matter
16:26 SparkyProjects here's a test, power the meters, then connect the + from one to the other, do the same with the -, then try crossing the wires, see if the meters respond
16:26 SparkyProjects one wire at a time
16:27 Monkeh While sharing the supply?
16:27 SparkyProjects yes
16:28 Monkeh Crossing them leads to readings of 17mV and -17mV
16:28 Monkeh (take those with a grain of salt, mind you)

16:29 Monkeh My other meter agrees on 17mV between their ground terminals.
16:29 SparkyProjects Is that just one wire at a time ?
16:29 SparkyProjects Like just connect the + from one to the - of the other
16:29 Seroster DANNIT
16:29 Hackbat joined #thegeekgroup
16:29 Monkeh SparkyProjects: No, that was with com to volts on each. I can do one at a time and get the same reading (17mV between them)
16:30 Electricguy nom time! :D brb
16:30 SparkyProjects Seroster, re your comment on the tesla, a tesla coil is a tuned resonant circuit, yes it is important to calculate the values properly
16:30 Seroster I wonder if he got pissed at me for that.
16:31 devast8a|away joined #thegeekgroup
16:31 devast8a|away joined #thegeekgroup
16:31 Seroster How the fuck do you tune a bucket cap? - or do you tune the coil to the cap?
16:32 SparkyProjects Monkeh, yeah, that says that you would get problems, unless you can work out if each meter uses negative for ground, and never have a potential between eeach ground
16:32 Seroster Getting back home on my 50cc scooter was a pain, it's like a million meters/second winds outside, both me and the bike got sandblasted and it was both hard to hit 25kph traveling one way, but very easy to get into the 70-80kphs in the other way. =P
16:32 SparkyProjects Seroster, you can tune a bucket cap by the amount of water in the bottles or bucket, it's surface area of the mating faces
16:33 Monkeh SparkyProjects: Ehh, that's getting a bit much effort for two 830B clones.
16:33 Seroster I thought you made them, closed them and didnt open them again for years to come?
16:33 mashpriborintorg the interesting thing with bucket caps is that you need to empty the beer bottles first step :p
16:33 SparkyProjects If the meters are the same, use one meter to test continuity from the terminals to the supply of the other
16:34 Monkeh They're not quite.
16:34 RcaVictrolaWax joined #thegeekgroup
16:34 Monkeh One's older, through-hole design, the other is SMD. I have no idea if there are any significant circuit differences.
16:34 SparkyProjects When you make the bucket cap first, you can test the capacitance of the bucket and make the coil to fit
16:34 Experimentonomen g'evenin old radio
16:34 RcaVictrolaWax Hi
16:36 RcaVictrolaWax Good Afternoon
16:36 SparkyProjects Hi
16:37 RcaVictrolaWax hi sparky
16:37 * Monkeh makes notes
16:37 Monkeh Next time, test rig on breadboard before soldering.
16:37 Monkeh Kinda a pain to break it out to a breadboard now to experiment
16:40 SparkyProjects The other thing to consider if you ever use the meters to test higher voltages is the isolation voltage, so if the isolation voltage of the meter is 1000v to ground when running how it was designed, then introducing an external supply could affect that
16:40 SparkyProjects think about rechargeables
16:40 Monkeh I'll never be using these things for high voltages
16:40 Monkeh Yeah, I might just put some rechargable batteries on the back instead
16:40 Experimentonomen SparkyProjects, i hit 1200W with a amp project today
16:41 Monkeh SparkyProjects: I watched a Fluke video the other day which put me off ever putting these things near high voltages again.
16:41 Experimentonomen rigjt before my subs bottomed out
16:41 SparkyProjects remember that most rechargeables are 1.2v per cell, and may give a low battery warning
16:41 SparkyProjects Experimentonomen: i read the log earlier :P
16:41 Experimentonomen oki
16:42 Monkeh SparkyProjects: Nothing stopping me from using the 7809 (well, a second circuit too) to give a nice consistent 9V from a higher voltage battery
16:42 SparkyProjects yep
16:42 Monkeh Or hell, I could look for a good deal on li-ion 9Vs and feed them to all my 9V stuff
16:43 Monkeh It's not like I don't have half a different 9V battery fed things on my desk at any given moment
16:43 Monkeh Er, half a dozen
16:43 * SparkyProjects wonders how long a meter would run on small super caps
16:44 Experimentonomen a few seconds :P
16:45 Monkeh SparkyProjects: Well according to my meter these things are sub-milliamp on DCV ranges.
16:46 Monkeh 0.3 for the SMD one and 0.8 for the old through-hole.
16:51 Monkeh I have a very special talent.
16:51 Monkeh I can lose a test lead I was using all of five minutes ago without ever moving it from my desk
16:53 mashpriborintorg you'll find it back in a month or two, in an impossible place, as the freezer
16:53 Electricguy lol!
16:53 Monkeh SparkyProjects: I could probably do this off two adapters without using a seperate 7809 actually. The meters do actually take 12V safely, so I could just feed one 12V and the other 9V (via a '12VDC' transformer plugpack which runs up to about 16.8VDC)
16:53 * Electricguy returns from ze noms
16:53 Monkeh But that's too easy
16:54 SparkyProjects That would be a better solution
16:54 Electricguy K.I.S.S!
16:55 Monkeh Probably put another 7809 in there when I order more bits in the future for the hell of it though, I'm not sure feeding it 12V for life is healthy
16:55 Monkeh Still, the stand is cute and handy.
16:55 Monkeh Oh, that reminds me
16:55 SparkyProjects If you're like me, you might have old equipment with 7809's in them
16:56 Monkeh How did you get that rubber grip matting to stick to things? PVA has failed me.
16:56 SparkyProjects or you can boost a 7805 with a lot of diodes
16:56 Monkeh That's effort.
16:56 SparkyProjects i used evo stik
16:57 Monkeh I could salvage a 317T from something but that's actually a kinda handy little board so I want to keep it
16:57 Electricguy more effort to put together a 317T circuit than connecting a row of diodes to the ground pin on a 7805 ;)
16:58 Monkeh I already have the rest of the circuit it just needs a different resistor :P
16:58 Monkeh It's a switchable 3.3V/5V supply
16:58 Monkeh Childs play to swap one of the resistors out to get 9V
16:58 Electricguy put a pot there instead ;)
16:59 SparkyProjects or change the switch, add a resistor, and have 3/5/9
16:59 Monkeh SparkyProjects: That'd require taking the switch off the board.
16:59 Monkeh It's a breadboard plugin
16:59 Seroster A mcfeast + fries + soda is actually cheaper than mcfeast + fries and no soda... That's odd.
17:00 SparkyProjects First you complain that using 2 supplies is too easy,, now we make it more difficult, you complain at that too :P
17:00 Monkeh hehe :)
17:00 Electricguy stop whining and just fucking DO IT! :P
17:01 Monkeh Give me more money to buy bits with, then. :P
17:01 Electricguy dumpsterdive for stuff to trash to get parts! :P
17:03 SparkyProjects Dumpster diving in the UK is getting harder, we are supposed to take old electricals etc to recycling yards, and they are not supposed to let it go out again
17:03 Monkeh Not to mention getting to them
17:03 Monkeh (if you're nice they let you walk off with stuff around here, though)
17:03 Electricguy dumpster diving in sweden is very hard and highly illegal.. but i do it anyways :P
17:04 Monkeh Illegal? JEez.
17:04 Monkeh When do they start taxing you for breathing?
17:04 Electricguy no idea..
17:05 SparkyProjects essentially it's always been illegal here too, because once it's in the dumpster it's the property of the dumpster company and is regarded as stealing

18:00 Seroster My arm hurts
18:02 Seroster Unwinding 1.5mm wire from an old transformer, winding it once onto a tube for storage to straigthen it out
18:03 mashpriborintorg modern transformers are a pain to unwind, old ones are so easy to proceed
18:04 mashpriborintorg the cores plates are sometimes very hard to remove, with the conformal coating
18:08 Experimentonomen it also makes it near impossible to put the trafo back together again without having half the lams left when full
18:09 Seroster lol
18:09 mashpriborintorg tightening the core so much is averkilled anyways... but they to not put bolts in the corners anymore, so they make it tight
18:10 Seroster Eh
18:11 Seroster The last big old one I pulled was tighter than -insert sexual joke- and the bolts were damn tight too.
18:12 mashpriborintorg cheap chinese transformers are most the time easy to get apart, at least
18:13 Experimentonomen i've laminated transformer from little like less than a kilo ones up to like 50-100kilo three phase ones
18:13 Experimentonomen and i've taken apart one that scaled in at almost 1000 kilos
18:14 mashpriborintorg it must be lots and lots of copper :p

18:20 Experimentonomen i took apart a small stick welder
18:24 * SparkyProjects used to work in a transfromer factory as an impregnator
18:25 SparkyProjects If the cores and laminations are clean (no varnish) you should be able to re laminate it, the idea of tight laminations is to reduce the buzz
18:25 Seroster Damn
18:25 Seroster I hate those welded ones....
18:26 Seroster SparkyProjects, You worked as an impregnator, eh? =D
18:26 mashpriborintorg a hatchet and a hammer are enough to get rid of the weld line, usually
18:26 SparkyProjects me too, i was hoping to remake a couple of MOT's with one primary and 2 secondaries
18:26 Experimentonomen mash, i used a hacksaw
18:27 SparkyProjects Seroster, yes, that was my official title
18:27 Seroster lol
18:28 SparkyProjects Basically that title meant i would use a vacuum/pressure tank to get the oil into the windings, and to dip finished transformers in varnish
18:30 SparkyProjects In Telecomms i used to put on the time sheet 'suite FA' as the job i was doing, which sounds like i was doing nothing (sweet FA), but meant i was doing Suite fuse alarms
18:34 Monkeh SparkyProjects: Well, having spent a while with some old headphone cable to salvage a wart, the meters are happily in agreement.
18:34 Monkeh That was worth finding out about.
18:34 * Monkeh makes note: Crap is crap.
18:34 SparkyProjects Cool :)
18:35 Monkeh And that's the last time I try and reuse headphone cable, too
18:35 SparkyProjects Was it the cloth cored stuff ?
18:35 Monkeh With a bonus of enamel, yes.
18:35 Monkeh Bloody pain in the butt
18:35 Electricguy that sounded wrong..
18:36 SparkyProjects Yeah, that's like the flexible telephone cable
18:36 Electricguy litz wire
18:36 Monkeh SparkyProjects: I had to break out the meaty solder to clean it off (I've got some stuff with frighteningly aggressive flux)
18:37 Monkeh To make matters more interesting, it was four core stuff, so I was joining conductors too.

18:40 Monkeh There's that reliable ISP again.. :P
18:41 SparkyProjects1 It does that occasionally, might have to call BT again
18:42 angy shut/no shut of ppp session
18:42 angy you changed IP
18:42 SparkyProjects1 My IP is dynamic, so disconnecting means i get a new one
18:43 Monkeh I abandoned dynamic years ago
18:43 angy your ISP disconnect you from time to time, there is no reason that disconnecting will give you a different IP
18:43 Monkeh angy: Line resync.
18:44 angy not even that
18:44 SparkyProjects1 It's funny, sometimes my location shows my local ISP is about an hour away in Cardiff, sometimes i'm shown as being miles away in the midlands :P
18:44 angy it depend a lot on the setup of the ISP
18:44 Monkeh angy: They don't tend to give you a lease on the IP, if you lose connection you get a new one. And your old one is probably blocked for a few hours anyway. Bit of a mockery of dynamic IPs, but hey.
18:45 angy not quite that, it depend on how you endpoint your connexion
18:46 Monkeh angy: It's BT, you can sum it up with 'badly'. :P
18:46 SparkyProjects1 I don't think it's blocked, but reallocated to the next person to connect
18:46 SparkyProjects1 I could go for fixed IP, but that's more expensive
18:46 SparkyProjects1 Besides i don't mind this, if i accidentally get IP blocked, i can disconnect and get a different one
18:47 angy in fact, you have an ``affinity'' for the IP you currently have. if you disconnect/reconnect you are very likely to get the same one
18:47 astro73|alice sounds like dyn IP in the states
18:47 angy but, if you arrive at the end of the affinity time, the ppp session is shut/no shut with the LNS aware that you need a new affinity
18:47 angy it all depend on how you L2TP tunnel is ended on the LNS
18:48 SparkyProjects1 I don't care about IP's, i just want a connection
18:48 angy and the most funny part is that it cost more to have dynamic than static if all the connexion are used :)
18:48 Monkeh SparkyProjects1: It wouldn't surprise me if there's a couple of hours grace time before an IP gets reused.
18:49 Seroster SparkyProjects1, Is "smaller is easier" a general rule of tesla coils?
18:49 angy it would surprise me a lot if that is the case Monkeh
18:49 SparkyProjects1 Seroster,  yes, you don't need so much power
18:50 SparkyProjects1 but you should try to get a decent voltage, like at least 4KV
18:50 Seroster Got teslamap handy?   6cm diameter primary tube (cardboard, so sue me) 4kv NST.  Suggested wire gauge and ammount of turns?

22:11 Druidic_Rifleman you know sero corupting a minor is a crime do you want lee to turn into to a total perv like you
22:11 PacketHumper it's for the captains blog

22:11 lwq-school druid i am already a total perv
22:11 astro73|alice he want's 8 times a high-end computer for editing unofficial stuff?
22:11 PacketHumper i'm not paying money for him to build that stupid of a computer for captains blogs
22:12 astro73|alice fuck that, use the money to build a render farm
22:12 PacketHumper astro73|alice: now you understand what i've been bitching aobut for the last week
22:12 lwq-school he also wants to test it, he may use the mobo for mc too
22:12 PacketHumper astro73|alice: EXACTLY MY POINT!
22:12 astro73|alice where in the CB is this?
22:12 PacketHumper hang on i'll find it
22:12 lwq-school like halfway
22:12 astro73|alice k, i'll have to watch it later
22:12 PacketHumper he talks out his ass without actually knowing anything about how video is rendered or data is stored
22:13 PacketHumper he wants to run sony vegas 11 pro from a ram disk and do the rendering in the ram disk because it will be orders of magnitude faster.
22:13 astro73|alice you mean like that guy that wanted to disable the OS cache?
22:13 PacketHumper i face palmed so hard
22:13 Seroster Druidic_Rifleman, In your dystopian theocracy it is. In the sane world, not so much.
22:13 lwq-school heres how i understand it, it goes from ram to processor then disk
22:13 astro73|alice strictly speaking, it is faster
22:13 PacketHumper in what way?
22:13 astro73|alice if 64GB would be enough space
22:14 lwq-school yeah it is faster
22:14 PacketHumper no it isn't
22:14 lwq-school its way enough
22:14 Seroster You let the computer render overnight. So...
22:14 PacketHumper and one power blip and it's all gone
22:14 * Druidic_Rifleman wonders how freaking amazing a world would be if i was actually allowed to create a "dystopian theocracy". and actually it is a crime
22:14 Druidic_Rifleman But meh
22:14 astro73|alice he's also not rendering HD, right?
22:14 PacketHumper yes he is
22:14 Druidic_Rifleman hey LEE
22:14 astro73|alice CB is in HD?
22:14 PacketHumper yes
22:14 Druidic_Rifleman In other news
22:14 lwq-school yes?
22:14 PacketHumper 720p
22:15 astro73|alice why? he's got a crappy point-and-shoot
22:15 Druidic_Rifleman I might be building a 2.5 inch mortor XD
22:15 PacketHumper RAM DISK?  doesn't anyone know what it is?
22:15 lwq-school o.o im going no where in canada with you there
22:15 PacketHumper doesn't anyone understand how ram works?
22:15 astro73|alice i know what it is, and usually power blips will wreck the render process
22:15 Seroster random access memory?
22:16 astro73|alice PacketHumper: i must be missing a subtlety
22:16 Seroster Let's fresh peoples memories!
22:16 PacketHumper it looses anything stored in it when power is lost
22:16 Seroster .w RAM
22:16 BotSteve "Random access memory (RAM) is a form of computer data storage." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAM
22:16 astro73|alice PacketHumper: RAM disk for temporary files
22:16 PacketHumper no, he wants to run vegas from it.
22:16 PacketHumper and store all the rendering files in it
22:16 astro73|alice huh?
22:16 PacketHumper not just as scratch
22:16 astro73|alice i'll have to watch this
22:16 PacketHumper chris wants to run vegas from a ram disk.
22:16 Seroster As I understand it RAM is a high speed memory for stuff that is being used this instant, so you don't have to write everything to the hdd
22:17 lwq-school how i understand it, he has it on a disk, he loads it to the ram, then when hes done he closes it
22:17 Druidic_Rifleman why would you be scared lee?
22:17 Seroster lwq-school, erm.
22:17 astro73|alice lwq-school: that would be the sane way to do it
22:17 PacketHumper doesn't make sense.
22:17 PacketHumper why do you need a ram disk to do what the program was designed to do anyways?
22:17 astro73|alice but OS caching should be able to keep everything in memory anyway
22:17 PacketHumper THIS IS WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING PEOPLE.
22:17 astro73|alice there is that
22:18 astro73|alice also: 64GB is still an ABSURD amount of memory
22:18 PacketHumper i've been doing this for many years
22:18 PacketHumper well not really.
22:18 astro73|alice i don't think i've ever heard of ANY single computer with that much RAM
22:18 PacketHumper meant that about the ram
22:18 Seroster PacketHumper, see other room
22:19 astro73|alice 64GB isn't obscene for a workspace?
22:19 tlockley astro73|alice: it is not un common for machines of particular roles to have upto or more that 192GB or ram
22:19 PacketHumper depends on what you are doing.
22:20 PacketHumper i have a company that does 3d rendering and walk throughs for building designs and such.  most of their stations have 32gb of ram.  a couple have 64 but after 16 you see little benifit.
22:20 PacketHumper my main station that i use here as 24.
22:21 PacketHumper even doing 1080p video 2 hours long sony vegas 11 pro uses less than 6gb of ram.
22:21 PacketHumper i've never used anything more than 9gb of ram in my machine.
22:21 PacketHumper the server holding my minecraft server has 48gb of ram.  using 7 of the 48gb currently.
22:21 lwq-school packet humper a 16gb card and a 8gb card?
22:22 Seroster You need 64gigs of ram to play minecraft at all. And even then it's blocky.
22:22 PacketHumper lol
22:22 PacketHumper no
22:22 PacketHumper 6 4gb dimms.
22:22 lwq-school oh
22:22 PacketHumper i run a core i7 950 which uses triple channel ram.  (ram is added in 3's instead of 2's.)
22:23 PacketHumper it's marginally faster for rendering and photo editing.
22:23 PacketHumper so marginally faster that intel ditched it due to lack of performance benifit.
22:23 lwq-school i see, well im going to a technical school next year for this so im going to have to learn this
22:24 PacketHumper you are welcome to ask anything you want.  if i don't know it i can point you to an article that does. :)
22:24 lwq-school you know whats funny, im running all my stuff on a 1gb ram computer with i think a 2.what ever proccessor in it
22:24 HighMan PacketHumper 1+1=c
22:24 HighMan *3
22:24 exor674 heh, I've got 14GB of RAM
22:24 HighMan 1+1=3

22:34 PacketHumper I just can't wait till the sheep buy him the parts for that computer and it's not as fast as he's making it out to be or he runs into the insane blue screen issues that others have run into while using the asus ram management crap
22:34 PacketHumper HighMan: yes most definately.
22:35 * HighMan Face Palms so hard. "Disk optimizer" Has a picture of a blue ray disk.
22:35 HighMan DERP.
22:35 astro73|alice how can you actually use 64GB?
22:35 PacketHumper For anyone who doesn't know this... microsoft security essentials is free for home use on xp, vista, and 7.
22:35 PacketHumper lol it's pretty damn hard but if you deal with a lot of textures you can do it
22:35 ParkerR PacketHumper, I know it and dont use it :)
22:35 HighMan Or use Avast+MBAM+SAS+SpyBot/SpywareBlaster
22:36 HighMan (All of which are free)
22:36 PacketHumper ParkerR: most people don't realize it and don't run anything cuz they can't afford it.
22:36 astro73|alice PacketHumper: i'm picturing multiple simultaneous renders, but then you would run into CPU and HDD bottlenecks
22:36 ParkerR PacketHumper, Heh
22:37 HighMan PacketHumper Yep
22:37 HighMan Well... I don't run it :P
22:37 HighMan No resources...
22:37 Seroster When you can keep 32 hi def movies in your RAM... It's no longer a computer, it's compensating for something.
22:37 PacketHumper astro73|alice: single render,  but imagine rendering a walk through of a several story lobby.  complete with moving chandeliers, marble, tile, you name it.
22:37 HighMan Seroster XD
22:38 astro73|alice PacketHumper: oh, so the kind of scene that would take a month to model
22:38 Seroster The last epic flight scene where the drunk takes out the bigass ship from Independence day used less than 64 fucking gigs of ram.
22:38 PacketHumper month?  it took 4 months to design in CAD and 9 months to model.
22:39 HighMan ^What is your main OS?
22:39 astro73|alice yeah, TGG isn't doing that soon
22:39 PacketHumper lol
22:39 PacketHumper for what? lol
22:39 HighMan Like what OS do you use daily for general use...
22:40 PacketHumper i bounce between most OS's so fast you'd laugh
22:40 HighMan xD
22:40 HighMan I just use windows.
22:40 astro73|alice you would.
22:40 HighMan And if everyone switched to linux... My flash drive would be POINTLESS.
22:40 PacketHumper win7 ultimate 64bit, osx 10.7.3 and centOS.
22:40 HighMan It has all portable apps for windows...
22:40 HighMan (Is that Lion?)
22:40 PacketHumper yah
22:40 HighMan Ah si
22:41 astro73|alice HighMan: if everyone used linux, you probably wouldn't need the portable apps so much
22:41 HighMan I've filled up an 8gb flashdrive with 7.12gb of stuff.
22:41 PacketHumper my servers all run 2008 r2 as host and then whatever OS the virtuals need.
22:42 lwq-school hmmm i wonder how much trouble i could get in if i took an ubuntu live cd and ran it on one of the school machines where i got to school at
22:42 PacketHumper my mac pro has final cute pro on it.  yes you read that right.
22:42 HighMan There are 74 portable apps.
22:42 HighMan and like 15 live cds
22:42 PacketHumper but i preffer vegas 11
22:42 Seroster PacketHumper, final cute pro?  Is it a program that enlarges eyes and adds fur? =D
22:42 PacketHumper premiere isn't bad but just not as quick for editing and splicing as vegas pro
22:42 HighMan lwq-school I was going to copy a few windows password files off of ubuntu on the day when my sub was dumb and din't now anything. MY FLASH DRIVE FAILED.
22:42 lwq-school lol haha
22:43 HighMan I was a bit pissed -_
22:43 HighMan -
22:43 PacketHumper Seroster: lol no it's a cute adorable little program which reminds us of the days when final cut pro reigned supreme.
22:43 tlockley PacketHumper: Pro X or Original FCP?
22:44 PacketHumper original

22:44 PacketHumper i never used it much
22:45 lwq-school .seen botsteve
22:45 BotSteve I'm right here, actually.
22:45 PacketHumper but my guys did.
22:45 PacketHumper pro X wasn't bad
22:45 tlockley fcp x is a complete sham, but I have used FinalCutPro back since v5
22:46 PacketHumper compared to what it is now pro x wasn't bad.
22:46 PacketHumper lol
22:46 PacketHumper i switched to premiere and dealt with that mess for years till someone asked me why i didn't use vegas pro
22:46 PacketHumper at that point i tried it out and haven't looked back.
22:47 PacketHumper expecially now that it does gpu rendering with certain gfx cards.
22:47 tlockley is it by series compatablitly or specific cards?
22:47 PacketHumper most used feature?  the S key. lol splice for removing the ums and huhs and blank stares.
22:47 PacketHumper series
22:47 PacketHumper nvidia is 200, 400, and 500 series.
22:48 PacketHumper i'd assume 600 series as well but it hasn't been placed on the list yet.
22:48 PacketHumper not entirely sure about amd.  i think 57xx and up work
22:48 PacketHumper 200 series is the only one that is very picky
