00:14 Seroster_ hey masterofmonks
00:15 masterofmonks Yes Seroster_?
00:15 Seroster_ Is a sunburn caused by welding worse than one caused by the sun?
00:15 masterofmonks It depends on the exposure time.
00:15 masterofmonks And the intensity.
00:15 masterofmonks But it very well can be.
00:16 masterofmonks When I weld for any period of time I apply sunblock.
00:16 Seroster_ Just kinda reddish and sore =)

14:16 mashpriborintorg hi Electricguy long time you were not here
14:16 Electricguy hi hi :)
14:16 Electricguy yeah.. have been on a damn faire.. -,-
14:20 HighMan I think microsoft just got dumber.
14:20 HighMan "Wow, you've got a very clean inbox! (Did you know you can receive messages from other email accounts?)"
14:21 mashpriborintorg speaking about mailbox, i have a project for my house
14:22 HighMan Electricguy, New EGGS!
14:22 mashpriborintorg I want to be able to check remotely If I have paper mail or a parcel delivered
14:22 mashpriborintorg the idea is to stick a laptop webcam in the mailbox
14:23 mashpriborintorg a broken-screen asus eeepc should do the job
14:24 mashpriborintorg laptop webcams are usb wired right ?
14:24 Damianz Unless it's made my apple who like to solder everything, including the ram
14:26 mashpriborintorg broken eeepcs are cheap, and tiny, I'll go for it, some basic linux with a motion sensing software
14:27 mashpriborintorg IR led lighting
14:27 mashpriborintorg I have the house in approx 6 months tho
14:35 Monkeh Damianz: Of course it's soldered.
14:35 Monkeh It'll still have a connecting cable, you don't run a PCB around a netbook lid.
14:36 mashpriborintorg yeah, the macbook Retina upgradalibity is ridiculous
14:36 mashpriborintorg Chris made a eeepc autopsy iirc

16:33 * HighMan gives mashpriborintorg a corola
16:33 HighMan *corona
16:34 Electricguy corona is pretty flimsy.. but it tastes pretty good
16:42 tonsofpcs corolla is even more flimsy and tastes a lot less good, some sort of weird metallic taste....
16:42 tonsofpcs lol mashpriborintorg
16:42 Electricguy yeah... i yet have to figure out why it tastes so weird..
16:42 * tonsofpcs has a TV to get rid of
16:43 tonsofpcs Monkeh: it's a molex-made fan connector for a PC... idk the number sorry.  search fan connector on mouser and you'll find it
16:45 tonsofpcs the 3pin is "KK" family
16:46 Electricguy i have never seen that connector on computer fans
16:46 Electricguy though i have seen them a lot on smaller LiPo batteries
16:47 Monkeh tonsofpcs: It is not.
16:47 Monkeh I identified it. JST XH series.
16:48 Monkeh (well, okay, someone found a cheap crappy chinese copy which happened to mention XH in the name)
16:48 Electricguy yeah XH seems to be it
16:49 Monkeh Common on small battery packs and as a fan connector in equipment.
16:49 Monkeh Molex KK is the normal PC fan connector, it is rather larger.
16:50 tonsofpcs Electricguy: I've had it on expansion chassis inside PCs and for fans in psuedoembedded (single-board low profile) PCs
16:51 Electricguy hmm okey
16:51 tonsofpcs we have a local electronics store that stocks those connectors so I just go with one and compare
16:51 Monkeh tonsofpcs: It's pretty normal in ATX PSUs and rackmount gear (at least one of my switches uses them.. I think the other one has two pin KKs)
16:51 tonsofpcs ya kk seems to be the more-squared corner ones
16:52 Monkeh tonsofpcs: KK is MUCH bigger.
16:52 tonsofpcs Monkeh: yup.  Rack gear from two specific companies that I know of use that connector almost exclusively for their fans
16:52 tonsofpcs Monkeh: even the 2-pin?  Is KK the connector used for 'cd audio' then?
16:53 Monkeh tonsofpcs: Photo of it next to a three pin KK line socket uploading..
16:53 Monkeh And no
16:53 Monkeh KK is standard PC fan
16:53 Monkeh Including the modified key version used for four-pin PWM fans.
16:54 tonsofpcs the last PC I had torn apart for fan repair had a board just for breaking out power to 6 fans and they were the type you showed the picture of.  Somehow the place I ordered from 'only had [that connector] in stock' rather than the other one :)
16:54 Monkeh tonsofpcs: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-A382xekZT5Y/T-3dmkpdl8I/AAAAAAAAA2M/T48TIrp3U0Q/s720/IMG_20120629_175250.jpg
16:55 tonsofpcs interesting
16:55 Monkeh Not sure what the CD audio connectors are
16:55 tonsofpcs so TWC gave me a 1p - 5p window today.  Taking odds on when they show up.
16:55 Monkeh They're standard 2.54mm pitch afaik (except for some specific drives.. I'm sure you've seen the cables with three different connectors on the drive end), with a catch
16:55 tonsofpcs CD audio connectors are just 3 jumper pins inline with a crappy clip added
16:56 tonsofpcs (and the middle one filled not pinned iirc)
16:56 Monkeh Yes, they have a key in the middle
16:56 Monkeh And there's digital and analog ones.
16:56 tonsofpcs yes, except that the pins are on the drive side so it doesn't really stop you from putting the wrong connector on....
16:58 Monkeh I haven't used those in so long I forget the pinout even
17:00 Monkeh tonsofpcs: Analog is four pin, right, ground, ground, left..
17:00 Monkeh Usually they skimp on a ground wire.
17:00 tonsofpcs analog cd connector is silly.
17:01 Monkeh iirc digital is standard S/PDIF header
17:01 tonsofpcs eh... kinda
17:01 Monkeh As I recall that's signal, ground, key, +5V
17:01 tonsofpcs it's what Sony proposed but I don't think it's the actual final standarrd.  Sony had CD drives to market before S/PDIF was formalzied iirc
17:02 Monkeh tonsofpcs: Those also come in two and three pin varieties, for extra fun.
17:03 Monkeh A lot of boards have both 3 and 4 pin (if they don't have both, they'll have 4), GPUs have 2 pin..
17:03 tonsofpcs that's why the 'solution' changed to just using the drive to read the data through the bus and having the system handle piping that gathered PCM around
17:04 Monkeh http://www.evga.com/files/Image/58021/SPIDIFINFO.jpg
17:04 Monkeh Looks like I swapped signal and ground and had it backwards anyway :)
17:04 Monkeh Explains the missing ground wire on analog cables, though, makes them compatible with either.
17:05 tonsofpcs interesting that the one motherboard connector shown there has balanced SPDIF
17:06 Monkeh tonsofpcs: The right one?
17:06 tonsofpcs ya
17:06 Monkeh That's not balanced
17:06 Monkeh It's got input and output.
17:07 tonsofpcs if it were input and output wouldn't it be SPDIFO and SPDIFI?
17:07 tonsofpcs I would think I is inverted...
17:07 Monkeh You'd think so
17:07 tonsofpcs (yay for proper labeling.....)
17:07 Monkeh But no, that's input and output.
17:07 Monkeh They've mostly done away with input these days though
17:07 Monkeh Which is a shame
17:08 tonsofpcs remind me not to buy one of those boards
17:08 Monkeh Also they've basically eliminated coax output
17:08 Monkeh EVGA boards are pretty good, actually
17:08 Monkeh I've just installed an Asus board which has a DISPLAY PROT
17:08 tonsofpcs ^H^H^H^H^H^H^HDisplay-limited Thunderbolt Port
17:08 tonsofpcs ;)
17:08 Monkeh No no
17:08 Monkeh Not a port
17:09 Monkeh A prot
17:09 tonsofpcs huh?
17:09 Monkeh The I/O shield actually has that typo on it.
17:09 tonsofpcs oh lol
17:09 Monkeh Not what I expect from an £80 board.
17:09 tonsofpcs ^H^H^H^H^H^H^HDisplay-limited Thunderbolt Prot
17:10 Monkeh A £40 special from MSI or the likes of ECS, sure
17:10 Monkeh But not a decent Asus board.
17:11 Monkeh ASRock even.
17:11 Monkeh But I wanted a solid board, damnit.
17:13 Seroster owtf

17:15 * Monkeh wanders off to fix a battery charger
17:19 Monkeh Hah, that was an easy diagnosis
17:20 Monkeh Coke poured into it, fuse open. Clean, replace fuse (with wire, probably, I don't think I have a suitable fuse to hand).
17:31 Electricguy yay! i just got my Arduino Nano clone, the little TTL to RS232 converter board and my DHT11 sensor :)
17:32 Electricguy g...reat.. i got a bluetooth module instead of the level converter..
17:32 Electricguy oh well, thanks dealextreme for sending me a part worth approx 12 dolars more
17:32 Electricguy dollars*
17:34 Electricguy the USB cable for the Arduino clone is pretty good. even got a noise choke on it
17:34 tonsofpcs oh, wow, a full size display prot!
17:35 Electricguy aaand the Arduino is put in regular white plastic foam... -,-
17:35 Electricguy hope is still works
17:35 * tonsofpcs throws Electricguy's arduino into the blogosphere
17:35 Electricguy phew! it lives!
17:36 Electricguy and it got horrible white and blue LEDs
17:37 Electricguy but.. balls! i just ordered a BluetoothBEE module today...
17:37 Electricguy well, perhaps i can set up a Bluetooth link between 2 Arduinos
17:40 Electricguy ooh there is a web addy on the Arduino clone.. www.funduino.com
17:42 Electricguy i want my Freaduino UNO now...

17:57 Electricguy probably kill it
17:57 Seroster =D
17:57 Electricguy if it got no oercurrent cutoff
17:57 Seroster Overcurrent cutoff? Fancy shit there, nope, aint got any.
17:58 Electricguy then you are most likely going to kill it

18:15 BotSteve injektion: THE TFW MODULE IS FUCKING BROKEN
18:15 Electricguy HAHA XD
18:15 Seroster xD
18:16 BotSteve AND I SMELL FUNNY
18:16 injektion It's 37.7C right now :/
18:16 Seroster SparkyProjects, the design you sent me is superior, however, it requires NO/NC/COM relays
18:16 Electricguy thats a component every single person should own.. :P
18:17 injektion It's fucking hot and the europeans until about the mid 1990s couldn't build a decent air conditioning system for a car
18:19 SparkyProjects If you only have NO/COM relays (and have plenty of them), but you have changeover switches, it's possible to configure them to work the same, you would need 2 relays to operate for each direction
18:19 Electricguy how many lions can you see near your car?
18:20 injektion The aircon in the volvo sucks, it sucked in the BMW and it sucked in the american car I had
18:20 Electricguy Oh. a Volvo.. yeah that says it all
18:20 Electricguy but Volvo make tractors.. not cars
18:20 injektion I am going to have to find a bigger condenser
18:21 injektion Also a modern cap tube and higher RPM condenser coil fan
18:21 Electricguy get a car instead
18:21 injektion I have a car
18:22 Electricguy no. you have a Volvo
18:22 injektion I <3 my Volvo
18:23 Electricguy ok, again, how many lions can you see near you, Volvo? :)
18:24 injektion I don't have to worry about lions. I have to worry about deer instead
18:24 Electricguy ok, no point of even attempting to make a joke here
18:25 injektion I know I took that pleasure I away from you which is why I said it :P
18:26 Electricguy it's because you are german. you got no humor... :)

18:40 Seroster SparkyProjects, So... In essence, WHAT I HAD! xD
18:40 mashpriborintorg need to dig more to find it out
18:40 Seroster What I had until I decided that you were probably smarter than me and thus tried what would happen if I shorted the thing. It smoked. =)
18:42 SparkyProjects Well yeah, you obviously had no protection :P
18:43 Seroster It was fun thou =)
18:45 Seroster SparkyProjects, I have plenty of NO/NC/COM relays, but.. They are all 24v
18:45 Seroster Sooo...
18:45 Seroster 24v xformer + rectification + caps, then 12v xformer + rectification + caps... xD
18:45 SparkyProjects Depending on how light the springs are, they may work on 12v
18:46 Seroster Yeah.. No. xD
18:46 Seroster Not reliably
18:47 Seroster They sometimes pull at 15v, but that's on the edge. =P
18:47 tonsofpcs oy
18:48 SparkyProjects I've reduced the tension on relay springs before
18:49 tonsofpcs center tapped with 0 +-12v output....
18:49 Seroster Those are chineese relays. They are ultrasound welded shut. =P
18:49 Seroster Gotta dig deep in the parts bin
18:50 SparkyProjects btw Seroster, that circuit i showed you, i used the same one for the resonant pendulum here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjRI_mCiV0I @3.41

22:10 Seroster But still kinda awesome
22:10 Seroster Got an electrical storm here
22:10 Seroster Just got a strike about 100m from here
22:10 Seroster My cats reacted by... Rolling over and keep sleeping xD
22:10 Gaxnys Haha xD
22:11 Gaxnys You mean a thunderstorm?
22:11 Seroster Fucking ion storm
22:11 SparkyProjects1 Hate for that car to get a stone chip :P
22:11 Seroster SparkyProjects1, Hey, it's heat shrink foil
22:12 Seroster Pretty neat shit, I saw a car completely "repainted" with that stuff in less than two hours
22:12 SparkyProjects1 Yeah, you can't use touch up paint :P
22:12 Seroster Makes some really wicked artwork possible
22:13 Seroster Anyway, Imma go hit the shower, I took a 25km bike ride today and I smell like a hobo's asshole.
22:14 masterofmonks Seroster, How you know what that smells like, I will leave for speculation.
22:14 Damianz One can only imagine
22:36 Seroster What's the golden ratio? 1:1.6?
22:36 Seroster I.E if one side of a rectangle is 20, what is the other supposed to be?
22:37 masterofmonks .wa golden ratio
22:37 BotSteve phi;1.6180339887498948482045868343656381177203091798057628...;1\/2 (1+sqrt(5));1\/2+sqrt(5)\/2;[1; 1^_];phi = 2 sin(54 &deg;);phi = -2 sin(666 &deg;);phi = 2 cos(pi\/5)
22:38 Seroster 1.6 is good enough for me
22:40 ^Prophet^ joined ##thegeekgroup

22:42 masterofmonks Hail ^Prophet^ .
22:42 tonsofpcs oy
22:42 Seroster yo
22:43 tonsofpcs .yo
22:43 ^Prophet^ i need help from someone that knows stuff about programming and the way it is arranged on a disk for a game like metroid prime
22:43 tonsofpcs congrats
22:44 ^Prophet^ because i get to a certain point in the game after getting a major upgrade and the game crashes
22:45 tonsofpcs is there a patch?
22:45 ^Prophet^ no, its for the gamecube and its on those tiny disks
22:45 tonsofpcs i know at least one recently released game that doesn't actually work more than about 20 minutes in without a patch
22:45 tonsofpcs oh, gamecube
22:45 ^Prophet^ yeah
22:45 tonsofpcs is it scratched?
22:45 ^Prophet^ not really
22:46 ^Prophet^ ive taken extremely good care of it
22:46 ^Prophet^ since it took me almost a year and half to find a copy of it
22:48 tonsofpcs really? it took me about 2 minutes.
22:49 tonsofpcs one of the three game stops within 5 miles has it in stock.
22:49 tonsofpcs $4
22:49 ^Prophet^ i checked all of the ones in my area
22:49 ^Prophet^ all 5 of them
22:49 ^Prophet^ none of them had it
22:49 tonsofpcs also "not really" doesn't mean no... is it scratched?
22:49 ^Prophet^ yes,
22:49 ^Prophet^ but
22:49 ^Prophet^ why would it crash now/
22:49 ^Prophet^ ?
22:50 ^Prophet^ wen i didnt have a single problem the rest of the game
22:50 tonsofpcs because you got to the scratched point
22:50 ^Prophet^ thats why i want to know how the data on the disk is arranged
22:50 ^Prophet^ and it crashes at a very spacific point to
22:50 Seroster Picture of the scratch?
22:51 tonsofpcs the Gamestop at Indeanhead Square in Mason City has it.
22:51 Seroster It comes a point when you know the disc is fucked, and when something is fucked you might aswell try the old toothpaste trick
22:51 ^Prophet^ ^ thinking about it
22:51 tonsofpcs as does the one at Supercenter Place in Austin, MN

22:52 ^Prophet^ i might stop in mason city on my way back from camp
22:52 tonsofpcs it could just be a fingerprint too
22:52 tonsofpcs you can clean those with a microfiber cloth and proper wiping
22:53 ^Prophet^ i never leave finger prints on my disks
22:54 tonsofpcs your honor, permission to treat the witness as hostile?
22:54 ^Prophet^ i dont have any other way to test if it is the disk or my gcube
22:54 tonsofpcs does it work up til that point?
22:54 ^Prophet^ yes
22:55 ^Prophet^ up till i have the lightsuit and am 2 rooms away from going to a different area the game works fine
22:55 Seroster Hey, go nuts, polish the shit out of it =P
22:55 eadthem joined ##thegeekgroup
22:55 ^Prophet^ with what?
22:56 ^Prophet^ the softest thing in terms of cloth that i have are my wifebeaters xD
22:56 Seroster Err
22:57 Seroster You need whitening toothpaste
22:57 Seroster It got a light abrasive in it
22:57 ^Prophet^ rubbing alchohol?
22:57 Seroster Give it some gentle rubbing with soft cloth, really old worn out tshirt is fine
22:57 Seroster Err, stay away from solvents for now, they are bound to ruin it
22:58 Seroster http://ceciliaelisabet.blogg.se/images/2008/14238_1204658744_3863715.jpg
22:58 Seroster Just... Toothpaste.
22:58 ^Prophet^ i wish i could test it with the Wii
22:58 ^Prophet^ ...
22:59 Seroster Then you polish the disc with your old tshirt cloth, then you rinse it off carefully, and buff it with another old tshirt, then you pray to whatever you feel like praying to, be it jehova, bill gates or darwin, and throw it in the drive
22:59 Seroster Worst case scenario you break it, but it's already broken.
22:59 ^Prophet^ ^ wrong
22:59 ^Prophet^ the game works fine up intill that point
22:59 ^Prophet^ so it isnt "broken"

23:08 tonsofpcs your honor, I repeat my request ;)
23:08 Seroster Go nuts
23:09 ^Prophet^ hmm
23:09 ^Prophet^ i wonder if it is because of the glich i tried to do when i started the file
23:09 ^Prophet^ ...
23:09 ^Prophet^ hm
23:17 ^Prophet^ lol
23:17 tonsofpcs wait, so you purposely glitched the game and you're asking us why it's glitched?
23:17 ^Prophet^ im on metroid2002 looking for random things to do when i start up a new file and this is what i found
23:17 ^Prophet^ Morphing or screw attacking exactly as you cross a waterline activates a glitch which causes the water to turn clear and screw attack under water to become possible.
23:17 ^Prophet^ then in the notes section i found this
23:17 ^Prophet^ Screw attacking bloggs is fun.
23:17 ^Prophet^ lol
23:20 tonsofpcs /opme && /kick ^Prophet^ && /deopme

23:41 LemLap joined ##thegeekgroup
23:42 kanzure joined ##thegeekgroup
23:44 kanzure- left ##thegeekgroup
23:44 kanzure- joined ##thegeekgroup
23:44 kanzure- left ##thegeekgroup
23:44 kanzure- joined ##thegeekgroup
23:45 kanzure- so why is there both #thegeekgroup and ##thegeekgroup
23:46 SparkyProjects1 #thegeekgroup is the official channel ##thegeekgroup  used to be the official one, but is now unofficial
23:47 tonsofpcs ##thegeekgroup was never the official channel
23:47 SparkyProjects1 #thegeekgroup would likely be monitored when something important is foing on at TGG, like the radio station or a live autopsy
23:48 SparkyProjects1 Simplest way to explain :P
23:48 Gaxnys SparkyProjects1: You mean #thegeekgroup on here, freenode?
23:48 kanzure ah right, this is freenode
23:48 kanzure ok that explains things
23:49 tonsofpcs kanzure: those who operate The Geek Group decided they needed to close down #thegeekgroup on freenode so they launched their own ircd and the ##thegeekgrouup about channel was formed on freenode for those who wanted to talk /about/ the geek group (and remain in a channel together on freenode)
23:50 kanzure the landing page on the site has a link to some silly web-chat thing
23:50 kanzure but the page doesn't tell me which server
23:50 SparkyProjects1 OK
23:50 SparkyProjects1 irc.freenode.net #thegeekgroup used to be the official channel
23:50 SparkyProjects1 irc.thegeekgroup.org #thegeekgroup became the new official channel
23:50 SparkyProjects1 you can only have a single # for official channels, so the freenode one became ##thegeekgroup
23:50 kanzure why on earth would i want to use a web client if i am going to be using irc?
23:51 Gaxnys kanzure: irc.thegeekgroup.org
23:51 tonsofpcs kanzure: because you don't understand IRC...
23:51 tonsofpcs (if you do, you wouldn't)
23:51 kanzure Gaxnys: yeah but they should just.. say that on their site.
23:51 SparkyProjects1 You can use another client for irc, you can add more channels to one client
23:52 Gaxnys kanzure: But they probably like it better if everything is in their control, including the client.
23:52 tonsofpcs 0
23:52 SparkyProjects1 kanzure: on the webclient you have all the info you need to use another client
23:53 SparkyProjects1 It's just a simple interface for newbies
23:53 kanzure i didn't see the server listed. i ended up on freenode, heh.
23:54 tonsofpcs well, we don't bite (too much... unless asked...)
23:54 tonsofpcs also, has anyone else noticed that wannabe is gone from freenode?
23:55 Gaxnys Who?
