00:03 astro73 is it MATE i'm thinking of?
00:03 Monkeh Yes, MATE is the form of GNOME 2.
00:04 Monkeh er, fork
00:04 Monkeh Bad fingers. Do as you're told.
00:04 wannabe-afk just saved $7 on car ins switching from old address to new addres

00:04 eadthem joined #thegeekgroup
00:04 astro73 i could have sworn there was a full distro doing it
00:04 Monkeh No, but Mint are officially supporting the project.
00:05 Monkeh As I said, they're the most likely distro to have packages.
00:06 injektion joined #thegeekgroup
00:07 wannabe-afk break time is over back to hauling things woo!
00:07 astro73 monkeh, i know the difference. i could have sworn what i found was a distro, not a desktop environment
00:08 injektion http://goput.it/f92.jpg
00:09 Monkeh astro73: Mint also provide a a forked gnome-shell for GNOME 3 which is similar to GNOME 2, by the name of Cinnamon
00:10 astro73 i see that, and no, that wasn't it either
00:10 Monkeh *shrug*
00:10 astro73 pretty much
00:10 Monkeh Cinnamon and MATE about cover it.
00:11 eadthem duck not had a blog yet?
00:11 astro73 just about
00:11 Monkeh There's MGSE but people weren't happy.
00:11 astro73 we'll see how it goes
00:11 astro73 eadthem, i figure youtube is still being stupid
00:11 eadthem ?
00:11 Monkeh Youtube is always stupid
00:11 astro73 idk
00:11 Monkeh They became stupid as soon as they became large.
00:11 eadthem what did they do
00:11 Monkeh You get on the radar of film and music companies and stupidity becomes a way of life.
00:14 injektion I'd like to make a Linux distro that follows the LSD
00:14 injektion er LSB
00:14 astro73 lol, nobody does, do they?
00:14 MadManMarkAu joined #thegeekgroup
00:15 injektion But I don't know what distro would be the best to start out with
00:16 astro73 i would go with the one that has the package manager you like the most
00:17 injektion DEB
00:18 injektion I'd honestly like to make a new package format that can make a good  99% of users happy :/
00:19 injektion I didn't like RH because of RPM
00:20 eadthem injektion thats why we ended up with deb  yum and rpm

03:36 BotSteve Title: Zomb 6.1 | Facebook
03:37 tgg|wannabe zozo was wrong then.  ok
03:40 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: You.. might, but I thought paging systems were rather higher than line level.
03:40 Cprossu 600ohm balanced output it says
03:40 Cprossu ^ egrsteve can you make heads or tails of that?
03:41 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Ever noticed in a supermarket, managers paging via their ordinary desk phone?
03:41 Cprossu yes, this is one of those.
03:41 Monkeh|Lap Yep.
03:41 Cprossu or for use in schools
03:41 Monkeh|Lap Yeah, same difference
03:41 Monkeh|Lap You dial an internal number and this thing is on the end. Instant paging.
03:42 Cprossu it has 'station' and 'trunk' modes
03:42 Monkeh|Lap Yeah, I'm not overly familiar with paging systems.
03:42 Cprossu either way it needs an analog phone (powered etc)
03:42 Monkeh|Lap I thought most of them were the 100V systems
03:42 tgg|wannabe ...
03:42 Monkeh|Lap (hence the hilariously crap sound)
03:42 FearOfMusic joined #thegeekgroup
03:42 tgg|wannabe hi FearOfMusic!
03:43 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Can I just be the first to say: The form factor looks random and crap.
03:43 Cprossu sure
03:43 Monkeh|Lap Probably the only to say, too.
03:43 Monkeh|Lap But it just looks like it doesn't fit anywhere
03:43 FearOfMusic hi
03:44 Cprossu it's probably menat to mount on a weall Monkeh
03:44 Cprossu *wall
03:44 Monkeh|Lap Which is crap
03:44 tonsofpcs Cprossu: it's a store speaker amp
03:44 Monkeh|Lap You'd figure something meant to tie phones and paging systems together would be in a 19" chassis.
03:45 Monkeh|Lap But that's just me.
03:45 tonsofpcs you plug music into it....
03:45 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: And a phone line.
03:45 Zozo most phone systems (not ip phones) use wall mount
03:45 Cprossu tonsofpcs this one ain't the audio amp part
03:45 tonsofpcs Monkeh|Lap: it's an all-in-one for mounting on a wall or such in a retail environment
03:45 Zozo and dont use a rack
03:45 tonsofpcs *pulls up part #*
03:46 Monkeh|Lap Zozo: I guess things are a little different over there, because over here, it lives in a 19" or 23" rack.
03:46 Zozo ah
03:46 Monkeh|Lap Everything. Unless it's a silly tiny system, in which case they intend you to put it on a shelf somewhere.
03:46 Monkeh|Lap Which is silly
03:46 Monkeh|Lap (10" racks should get more common. They're kinda neat for small-scale stuff)
03:47 Zozo i used to work for a phone company and seen alot of systems and non but ip based were rack mount
03:47 Zozo rack mount systems are good, but man some of these older systems used to take up rooms
03:48 Monkeh|Lap Zozo: What, you mean like this? http://shallop.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/pbx.jpg
03:48 Zozo those are fun
03:48 Monkeh|Lap That looks like a fairly custom console, but it's all 19" by the look of things.
03:48 Zozo but i worked on ones smaller than that lol
03:49 Monkeh|Lap That's not overly big looking
03:49 Zozo like the fujitsu f9600
03:49 tonsofpcs Cprossu: oh, it's the newer one sans amp
03:49 Cprossu well either way it's pointless to us for the moment heh
03:49 tonsofpcs Cprossu: cafe?
03:50 Cprossu no speakers in cafe =P
03:50 Monkeh|Lap I pray when your paging system is put together it'll actually be clear enough to hear.
03:50 Monkeh|Lap You guys can do it. I know you can.
03:50 Monkeh|Lap (unlike every professionally installed system ever.)
03:50 Monkeh|Lap But now, Supernatural.
03:51 tonsofpcs Monkeh|Lap: it's all about speaker type and placement
03:51 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: And teaching staff not to inhale the handset.
03:52 Zozo yea we need to find a way to get a good quality speaker "phone" with good mics for the gaming night on mondays
03:52 Zozo do that way people who cant make it to the lab can join
03:53 Cprossu we should get altec or klipsch do donate some of their bomb ceiling speakers
03:53 Monkeh|Lap Rig up a diabolical device involving the likes of Mumble or TS3?
03:53 Zozo we plan on using ts3 or skype for the pc side
03:53 Zozo but we need something for the table
03:54 Monkeh|Lap Dangle your best mic from the ceiling and put a couple speakers round the place?
03:54 Zozo so people here dont need headphones and can talk to the pc people like they were here
03:54 Cprossu http://altecpro.com/pdfs/CD1012%20Data%20Sheet%20PRELIM.pdf
03:54 Cprossu ^ tonsofpcs hehehehe
03:55 tonsofpcs hmm?
03:55 Cprossu think that's overkill for a ceiling speaker?
03:56 Zozo well we have a shotgun mic we can use, but i dont wanna take over radio for the gaming night
03:57 tonsofpcs Zozo: what is thjs 'gaming night'?
03:58 tgg|wannabe astro73|roam: put it on your calendar, monday night, 7pm the lab
03:58 Zozo table top rpg night (kinda like D&D)
03:58 tonsofpcs and why can't you use boundary mics?  (egrsteve and I talked about micing whole rooms at one point, found some single-gang installed PZMs
03:58 tonsofpcs oh, that's even easirr
03:58 tonsofpcs *easier
03:58 egrsteve we don't have any pzms
03:58 tonsofpcs shotgun is *not* the answer btw.
03:59 * egrsteve returns to lurking as to not drive tgg|wannabe crazy.
03:59 tgg|wannabe hi steve!
03:59 tonsofpcs egrsteve: np, but you have some poorly cobstructed ECMs?
03:59 tonsofpcs (cheap and/or broken lavs?)
03:59 Cprossu damn I am happy lol
03:59 Cprossu and hungry
04:00 egrsteve we have some old lavs from wireless units but idk, about about preamp needed for them
04:00 Zozo those (what i think are) shotgun mocs work great for picking up anyone in the radio that dosent have a dedicated mic
04:00 Zozo mics*
04:00 egrsteve zozo most any condencer would do that
04:00 tonsofpcs not really.
04:00 tonsofpcs shotguns are highly directional
04:01 Ender joined #thegeekgroup
04:01 egrsteve these are the sony short shotguns from the eng cams
04:01 astro73 tgg|wannabe, RPG, right? ok
04:01 egrsteve so more hyper cardioid
04:01 tgg|wannabe yessir
04:01 Monkeh|Lap Zozo: Shotguns work great for picking up a person who doesn't have a mic. Not a room.
04:01 tgg|wannabe character creation
04:01 tonsofpcs egrsteve: well, you plug the ECM (with added bias voltage) into a PC's mic input, should have enough gain
04:01 * egrsteve returns to lurking as to not drive tgg|wannabe crazy.
04:01 tgg|wannabe steve, stop using big words!
04:02 tonsofpcs tgg|wannabe: it looks like a heart that had a belt pulled tight around the center.
04:02 tonsofpcs hyper-cardioid
04:03 tgg|wannabe well, cardio- is heart
04:03 tgg|wannabe but....i doubt that
04:03 Zozo well all i know is they worked for picking up people on the other side of the room where the mic was not pointed
04:03 tonsofpcs .g hypercardioid pickup pattern

04:10 Monkeh|Lap BatSteve: Semi-true
04:10 BatSteve hmm.. okay.  Well, whatever, I just rebooted to apply kernel upgrades.
04:11 BatSteve if it's stupid but it works, it isn't stupid
04:11 Monkeh|Lap BatSteve: Well you would have to unless you're running a very carefully set up system.
04:11 tonsofpcs you let cpro science?!

04:18 * Cprossu tried to do science already tonight
04:18 * Cprossu notes that it's a bad thing when cloth wrapped electrical cord starts to warm up
04:19 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: True, on the other hand, it'll handle more of that heating.
04:20 Cprossu very true
04:20 Cprossu but when the thing is an old test probe (for 20-49 megacycles) and it draws enough current to heat the wire, something is probably wrong
04:20 tonsofpcs why do you have cloth around electrical cord?
04:21 Cprossu ^ old test probe with a built in RF mod
04:21 tonsofpcs why do you have cloth around electrical cord?
04:21 Cprossu ^ because no one replaced it?

04:22 tonsofpcs he didn't say insulation, he said wrapped around.
04:23 tonsofpcs anyway, rf probes arent generally made for high current
04:23 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: We both know what he meant. :P
04:23 tonsofpcs that's why you have a load and a sample system.
04:24 Cprossu it's why I had it hooked to a power strip as so I could quickly turn it off =P
04:25 tonsofpcs erm....
04:25 tonsofpcs what were you doing?
04:25 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: Haven't you been listening?
04:25 Monkeh|Lap SCIENCE!

04:28 Cprossu you asked what I was doing. I said I was doing science and it failed ;D

17:09 Electricguy and soon, when i get my console from DX.. i got a SNES in my pocket :P
17:09 Electricguy and a bunch of other consoles :P
17:09 Experimentonomen back when i was around 17, there were actually pc mobos made specifically to fit the shell of an old NES
17:09 Electricguy oh yeah! i think i have seen one of them sometime

17:12 Experimentonomen i only heard about them, never actually saw one
17:12 Electricguy i remember seeing one on a picture sometime
17:12 Electricguy never took any real notice of it though
17:12 Experimentonomen yeh
17:12 Experimentonomen i heard about it once  so i guess it more or less flopped
17:13 Experimentonomen i did get a question on icq back then though if i had aold NES i would be willing to sell for the purpose of that pc mod

18:37 Cheezmo I've done some DS rebuilding
18:37 HighMan Well ok
18:37 Cheezmo it is definitely finicky and things are easy to break :I
18:38 HighMan DS top screen looks like it's washed out
18:38 HighMan I can see letters, but washed out.
18:38 Cheezmo so like too much white?
18:38 HighMan AH HA!
18:38 HighMan I am screwed.
18:39 HighMan Sort of. I figured out my problem, I took off the top and the connection between the lcd and the board is loose -_-
18:39 HighMan I fiddled with the ribbon cable and it works. Then it doesn't.... Sadly I don't know how to take it apart...
18:39 HighMan It works for now... lol
18:39 y007ghg7 guys
18:40 y007ghg7 i wanna take a tube sock of baby powder and put it in the plumatic tube at a bank :p
18:40 HighMan Why? o_O
18:40 dbshortwave do you guys ever remember a 4 disk changer CDroms
18:40 Cheezmo y007ghg7: just dump a bottle of baby powder in there less the sock
18:40 y007ghg7 *poof* powder everywhere
18:40 HighMan lollol
18:41 Cheezmo also Highman, look around YouTube, there should be some detailed instructions on disassembly for if/when you need it
18:41 HighMan No tri-wing
18:41 Cheezmo but you will need a tri-wing...
18:42 Cheezmo yeah, eBay from china for a buck
18:42 HighMan :P
18:42 HighMan Now the f'ing case won't get on...
18:44 Cheezmo Highman, $3 and I'll ship you a set of my DS screwdrivers airmail, lol
18:44 HighMan :P
18:44 Cheezmo I've got like 3-4 sets
18:45 Cheezmo bought a set, then got a few more sets with shells
18:45 HighMan I have trouble getting damn ds shell on.
18:46 Cheezmo bottom half or top?
18:46 HighMan Top
18:46 HighMan Not touch screen
18:46 Cheezmo just make sure the speakers are lined up and their wires are in the right grooves
18:46 Cheezmo wires in grooves are one of the bigger issues I faced
18:47 Cheezmo if they're not perfect, it can fuckup the alignment just enough :|
18:47 Cheezmo and initiation of rageface ensues
18:47 HighMan Damn it. I gonna get tape.
18:48 Cheezmo wat
18:49 HighMan Wires won't stay
18:49 Cheezmo ah
18:49 Cheezmo should get a fine syringe of rtv silicone or a tiny tack of hot glue using a toothpick P:
18:49 Cheezmo holds enough, but can be removed
18:52 HighMan Wire are in the right spot..
18:52 HighMan The damn shell just wants to slide down.
18:56 HighMan Cheezmo?
18:56 Cheezmo boop
18:57 HighMan ^^
18:57 Cheezmo yeah, like I said, finicky
18:57 Cheezmo lemme grab a shell here and have a look
18:57 HighMan :(
18:57 HighMan :)
18:59 Cheezmo ah, right right... the top shell needs to be slid to lock/unlock
18:59 Experimentonomen Electricguy, u sure those lil speeakers arent 8 ohms ?
18:59 HighMan ?
19:00 Cheezmo xwell, on this remanufactured one it needs to be slid... there;s a bunch of L-shaped clips on the edges of the halves
19:05 HighMan They are smushed -_-
19:06 Cheezmo you killed them :C

19:33 Cheezmo lol
19:33 BotSteve cheezmo: I have the following messages for you:
19:33 BotSteve At 19:30Z, roadran422 asked me to tell cheezmo Well. Looks like shit. Works. But idk if the mic works lol. Held together by Tape xD
19:33 Cheezmo wait what
19:34 Cheezmo that's wrong...
19:34 Cheezmo BotSteve is bork'd
19:35 SparkyProjects How is Botsteve borked ?
19:36 Cheezmo BotSteve: Tell Cheezmo 1234
19:36 BotSteve You can tell yourself that.
19:36 Cheezmo fine
19:36 Cheezmo but
19:36 Cheezmo HighMan told Botsteve to tell me a message, but BotSteve said roadran422 sent it

20:03 killakee ah.. lucky lucky man :)
20:04 SparkyProjects I'm just wondering if the topload is going to be too close to the primary
20:05 killakee yeah .. or maybe thay are going to have a strike ring ...
20:06 Yrouel uhm few hours ago I tried the HV pendulum, however the tiny copper wire used to suspend the weight was istantly vaporized.
20:07 Yrouel What kind of wire I can use for this experiment wich would conduct and move freely?
20:07 SparkyProjects Chris mentioned in the design they would have a way to move things so they can try different locations for the primary to see if it makes a difference to coupling, maybe they allowed the secondary to be moved up
20:07 tonsofpcs wtf is on this woman's head at the kentucky derby?
20:07 tonsofpcs it looks like bra padding with a lace bra crumpled up and superglued on top
20:08 tonsofpcs Yrouel: silver clad copper maybe?
20:09 SparkyProjects yrouel, most reasonable sized flex should work, or maybe add a pivot at the top, you could even use a small loop in a stiff wire hung over a nail
20:09 tonsofpcs Yrouel: does it have to have lateral motion or just swinging?
20:10 Yrouel swing like a...pendulum
20:10 Yrouel no other movements
20:11 tonsofpcs how about a solid piece of copper with a ball-and-socket joint as the fulcrum for contact?
20:11 Yrouel I was thinking that maybe a ring with a normal electrical wire should do
20:11 Experimentonomen *yaaaawwwwwwnn*
20:11 Yrouel the ring should allow the pendulum to oscillate providing also the electrical connection
20:12 IntelliTom joined #thegeekgroup
20:12 tonsofpcs actually, more a cup-and-ball than ball-and-socket, if that ammakes sense
20:12 Yrouel I'll try various configurations
20:12 Yrouel :D
20:12 tonsofpcs scale model?
20:13 SparkyProjects What are you usiing for a transformer ?
20:13 Yrouel SparkyProjects nst
20:13 tonsofpcs you could just inductively couple the conductor....
20:13 SparkyProjects ok, had visions of you using a MOT :P
20:13 Yrouel no no
20:14 Experimentonomen MOTs are useless fot tesla coils
20:14 Yrouel I have one but is kept inside a box looked with respect and a little bit of fear
20:14 Yrouel ;)
20:14 Yrouel I'm experiencing with HV since only 3 days
20:14 SparkyProjects Like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eC4WfKI90VM
20:14 Yrouel and I don't want to die lol
20:15 tonsofpcs have they added magnets and coils to the orbitron yet?
20:15 BotSteve Title: High Voltage Pendulum Motor - YouTube
20:16 Yrouel and btw from what I see on youtube MOTs are build very very cheaply and tend to release the magick smoke pretty quickly when used to create arcs
20:16 tonsofpcs most transformer systems are designed to be loaded...
20:17 SparkyProjects Not if you current limit them
20:19 Experimentonomen Yrouel, then i suggest you shelf the hv stuff and start with lv stuff and learn the basics
20:19 Yrouel I'm used to lv
20:19 Yrouel ttl etc
20:20 Yrouel don't worry I use precautions
20:20 Experimentonomen my hv reached about as far as overpowered flybacks
20:21 Experimentonomen and it something i quit doing years ago
20:21 Experimentonomen i find much more joy in building audio amplifiers
20:22 Yrouel see I for example don't care about audio stuff
20:22 tonsofpcs HV is all about audio.
20:23 * tonsofpcs has yet to see a decent use for HV that doesn't end up having something to do with audio

20:28 Yrouel and arduino stuff
20:28 Experimentonomen my goodbye to high voltage was a plasma tweeter i built few months ago, i deleted the video of it though
20:29 mashpriborintorg If I want to start with HV, I would start with a thing like a Van de Graaf generator, less dangerous
20:29 Electricguy i have started to lose interest in high voltage too.. lol. it's fun for a while :P
20:29 Electricguy then, when you have tried pretty much everything you can do with it at home it's not that fun anymore.. :P
20:30 injektion I've lost instrest in everything
20:30 mashpriborintorg Hi amps seems more fun :p
20:31 Experimentonomen done that too, ended as a spot welder which i never used :P
20:31 Electricguy amps are fun because there are SOOO many different ways you can build them to make them work :P
20:31 Electricguy and lately i have started to gain interest in µC's
20:32 Experimentonomen Electricguy, i doubt you'd want to build this one though: http://i.imgur.com/wcHpN.png
20:32 Experimentonomen ;p
20:32 Electricguy well, nah XD
20:33 tonsofpcs is that an optillator?
20:33 Electricguy or, i would, if i could see what's what on the schematic... XD
20:33 Experimentonomen remember the frustration u had when u tried to replicate the amp cir i gave u around a year ago ?
20:33 tonsofpcs (irfp9240c)
20:33 Electricguy lol yeah.. but that circuit was never tested IRL before either. :P
20:33 tgg|wannabe BotSteve: tell detrix thanks for the cookies.  nommy!
20:33 BotSteve tgg|wannabe: I'll pass that on when detrix is around.
20:33 tonsofpcs oh, those are two different parts, nevermind
20:34 Experimentonomen that frustration haunted me for 2 daysd with this cir
20:34 Electricguy lol
20:34 Experimentonomen on the third day i finally figure it out, a miswired bias transistor
20:34 tonsofpcs does the difference between 1k5 and 1k547 actually matter that much?
20:34 tonsofpcs .c 5% * 1500
20:34 BotSteve 75
20:35 Electricguy i have to say i'm impressed.. i would never be able to sit down and tinker with a circuit just to get it to work...

20:39 Experimentonomen 0.22 ohm 5 watt resistors
20:39 tonsofpcs ya, ok
20:40 tonsofpcs what's with the dual-transistors with waht looks like hotglue holding  them back-to-back?
20:40 Yrouel less than 1 ohm?
20:40 tonsofpcs Resistance is futile (if < 1 ohm)
20:40 Experimentonomen thats the input stage LTP(long tailed pair diffamp input pair) thats silicone hose
20:40 tonsofpcs Yrouel: yes. 0R22
20:41 Yrouel what's the purpose of such low resistance?
20:41 Experimentonomen they are held tiogether like that to minimize dc offset drift caused by temperature differences
20:41 Electricguy i got a .35 Ohm resistor on my current source on my little class A amp :)
20:41 Experimentonomen current sharing
20:42 tonsofpcs Yrouel: there's four of them.
20:42 Experimentonomen u cannt directly parallel transistors unless they are perfectly matched
20:42 HighMan joined #thegeekgroup
20:42 Experimentonomen so those 0.22 ohm resistors compensates for the slight mismatch between the output devices
20:42 tonsofpcs Experimentonomen: send me a bunch, I have a curve tracer that I want to play with :D
20:43 Experimentonomen a curve tracer is not the tool used for matching, it only really shows if a device is open/short
20:43 Yrouel Experimentonomen uhm wouldn't be more logical to put variable resistors?
20:43 Experimentonomen to match transistors you measure the current gain, or beta and hFE as its also called
20:43 tonsofpcs Experimentonomen: uh... no, it shows the curve.
20:44 Experimentonomen Yrouel, no
20:44 Yrouel since it's also impossible to have 2 perfectly identical resistors
20:45 Electricguy a lot of low Ohm potentiometers at that power rating would be DAMN expensive :P
20:45 Experimentonomen at these low values, any difference is neglible
20:45 Yrouel (except some applications with precision resistors trimmed with lasers)
20:45 Yrouel oh I see
20:46 Experimentonomen just look inside any commercial amp and u see those white ceramic resistors near the heatsink

21:31 BotSteve At 05:06Z, Batsteve asked me to tell csmonster that the OTHER word of the day is "Kalashniklobb"
21:31 Katemonster "what's that smell?"
21:31 Katemonster LMAO
21:31 Katemonster no.
21:31 Electricguy it's just horrible to see people playing with these things and got no idea what they are doing
21:32 Katemonster oh dear.  i fear I may have broken GIMP.  D:
21:32 Electricguy it's like that Mythbusters ep when they try to fool the cop radar gun.. WITH MAGNETRONS! they are standing like 2 feet from a couple of live magnetrons! -,-
21:33 Monkeh Electricguy: I would imagien they knew what they were doing with that.
21:33 Katemonster that's because RF burns are a barrel of fun.  everyone knows that.
21:33 Experimentonomen i dont think those magnetrons were actually plugged in
21:33 Monkeh Unlike that time they fired a cannon POINTED AT A TOWN.
21:34 Electricguy monkeh, clearly not as they measure the output of them by holding a EMF meter like 1 inch from the magnetron while it's on.. genious!
21:34 Experimentonomen if they were, the picture would have been all wacked and sound like in them ufo movies
21:35 Electricguy uoi can only hope. for their own safety..
21:35 Yrouel afaik on mythbusters everything is done only if safe enough especially because of insurance business
21:35 Monkeh Yrouel: And then they shot a cannonball through a house. From a mile or two away.
21:36 Monkeh Okay, 700 yards. Even worse.
21:36 Yrouel Monkeh you refer to the episode with the guy with the passion of cannons which they interviewed at his house?
21:36 Yrouel if I remember the myth was the leather cannon
21:36 Experimentonomen that would be the wooden barrel cannon episode if im not mistaken
21:37 Monkeh Yrouel: Uh, no.
21:37 Experimentonomen with jamies hand crafted granite cannon ball
21:37 Monkeh UrsusCode: Last December, they misfired a cannon and it hit a house.
21:37 Katemonster my dad was saying one of the problems they had early on with the F-15 was a short due to improper cable crimping that caused the power switch to the radar transmitter to not work, and the transmitter couldn't be shut off, so they were baking the ground crew without realizing it.   this is a grossly oversimplified version of the story.
21:37 Monkeh An occupied house. And went through it, through another house's roof, and through a parked van.
21:37 Yrouel Monkeh which episode?
21:38 Monkeh Yrouel: It was not aired.
21:38 Yrouel ah that's it
21:38 Monkeh It hit the news.
21:38 Monkeh Katemonster: Not to mention the tankers.
21:38 Yrouel Monkeh ok I was unaware of that
21:38 Monkeh Katemonster: You get some very pissed off, sterile men when people forget to turn their radar off while refueling.
21:39 Experimentonomen Monkeh, the mythbusters show was shut down after that, wasent it ?
21:39 Electricguy lol
21:39 Monkeh Experimentonomen: No.
21:39 Electricguy they are still making eps
21:40 Electricguy ok, bedtime. night all!
21:40 Experimentonomen i guess it couldent be linked to adam and jamie, considering all the insurance stuff they go through for everything
21:40 Monkeh Experimentonomen: They weren't even there.
21:41 Monkeh It had nothing to do with them, and nor does a great deal of the show.
21:41 Monkeh (seriously: They don't do most of the work or come up with all the ideas.)
21:41 Yrouel so how is related to mythbusters?
21:41 Monkeh Yrouel: Because it was during Mythbusters filming, with Mythbusters crew.
21:41 Monkeh Jamie & Adam != the entire show, these days.
21:43 Yrouel ah ok so it was with kari tory and grant
21:44 Experimentonomen i've seen grant imahara in some irc channel once
21:45 Yrouel robotic stuff I presume
21:45 Experimentonomen i dont remember what channel but as far as i remember i joined seconds before he left

21:58 Yrouel place
21:59 tonsofpcs it's been 10 months since I've been there....
21:59 tonsofpcs lots has changed, lots has stayed the same, etc.
21:59 Yrouel but for some things my ocd will surely kick in such the mess of wires coming to the servers
21:59 Yrouel lol I hate viewing that
21:59 tonsofpcs they need some OCD people to fix some of that.
21:59 Yrouel I'd suit the role
21:59 tonsofpcs like the wiring behind the wheatstone could proobably use some OCD layout once it's done
22:00 Yrouel I'd unplug everything and make some order
22:00 Yrouel lol
22:00 tonsofpcs this reminds me... anyone know where I can get some lashing line?  (The string you use to lash multiple cables together to make a harness)
22:01 tonsofpcs (I have a big harness to make at work that needs to be as low profile as possible)
22:01 tonsofpcs Yrouel: yup, unplug, make both ends the proper length, velcro the middle to make it a big cable, etc.
22:01 Yrouel yeah

22:02 tonsofpcs mind you, the wheatstone will have something like 10 conductors per channel going to/from stuff through the 'trunk' and there's about 40 channels ...
22:02 Experimentonomen endergriefer ;p
22:02 Yrouel and group the cables properly and lay them properly along the border of the case
22:02 Yrouel the rack

22:34 wannabe1987 hi
22:34 tonsofpcs hai
22:35 wannabe1987 lab = internet, house != internet unless zozo is there :P
22:35 wannabe1987 but i get a lot done w/o internet.....
22:35 wannabe1987 :P
22:36 tonsofpcs I blame Zozo for not implementing a WISP
22:36 wannabe1987 me too
22:38 tonsofpcs he and Cprossu should find a datacenter in town (perhaps with ynos's help?) and colo there and then beam interwebs to the lab, geekhousen, more paying customers.  The more customers you get, the more your cost goes down, the more you can donate to the non-profit that is tgg for some tax breaks, the more you make, etc.
22:38 tonsofpcs also, apparently my tablet's battery died
22:38 wannabe1987 yeah, that doesn't make sense to me, but to others it does! :D
22:38 wannabe1987 its why i hang out with smart people
22:39 tonsofpcs I hang out with smart people as sort of a get-away
22:39 Monkeh wannabe1987: no internet without zozo?

22:40 wannabe1987 what tons said
22:40 Monkeh Oh.
22:40 tonsofpcs he's directly peered through neural networks
22:40 Monkeh I thought that was Cprossu
22:40 tonsofpcs no, Cprossu still hasn't gotten it working *rimshot*
22:40 wannabe1987 LOL
22:43 tonsofpcs now where did I put that hard drive...
22:45 Guardianzozo if only i had built in internet....
22:46 tonsofpcs yea, if you did, you would know that we're talking about you and appear just as soon as you finished whatever it was you were doing... oh, wait.
22:46 wannabe1987 lol
22:46 tonsofpcs hmm, I'm missing a day's worth of pictures... *greps the tablet*
22:51 wannabe1987 why must they put almonds and raisens in trail mix?!
