08:15 Chipguy go to bed :P
08:25 Experimentonomen i got outta bed after 10 hours of sleep
08:25 Experimentonomen just*
08:53 * Experimentonomen looks for arduino stuff for mating a NES controller with a USB port
09:02 einball jojojo!!!
09:02 einball There is a shield afair
09:07 einball Experimentonomen: Sorry, the shield is for NES cartridge emulation
09:09 Electricguy first google answer.. :)
09:09 Electricguy http://www.instructables.com/id/USB-NES-controller-with-an-arduino/
09:09 BotSteve Title: USB NES controller with an arduino!
09:15 einball Your google is larger than mine *bows*
09:16 Electricguy lol.. just google for what you want to make..
09:16 Electricguy basically a NES controller to USB adapter with an Arduino.. XD
09:19 Electricguy ooh! :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4joA4_rgdI&feature=g-u-u
09:19 BotSteve Title: Kodak Motion Corder high-speed video system teardown - YouTube

09:31 einball 15 fps :-)
09:31 Electricguy hehe

09:37 Topic for ##thegeekgroup is now Welcome to the UNOFFICIAL Geek Group channel, a place for the general discussion of geekiness,and Geek Group related activities.    "<Monkeh|Lap> SparkyProjects: I like degaussing CRTs. It's therapeutic."
09:43 einball I have lighttpd installes, php-cgi installed and enabled in the lighttpd.conf - but when I want to view a php file it tells me "402 - Forbidden". What could I have missed?
09:47 einball oh err .. nevermind. Just discovered a nasty #
09:53 Electricguy i just discovered a weird thing..
09:53 Electricguy when you have a bad cold.. you don't really feel when it's time to take a dump! -,-
09:53 Electricguy until it's like "RELEASE THE KRAKEN!!!" and you almost blow a hole through the bottom of the toilet
09:55 einball :D
10:20 Experimentonomen aight i have a nes controller hooked up to my duemilanove and i can see the TX led flash when i press the buttons, but i dont get a response in a game, nor in notepad
10:20 Experimentonomen if i open the serial monitor in the arduino program, the tx led stops flashing when i press the buttons
10:20 Electricguy is it supposed to act as a keyboard?
10:21 Experimentonomen http://code.google.com/p/nes-controller-arduino-serial/
10:21 BotSteve Title: nes-controller-arduino-serial - Arduino project to connect NES controller to USB serial port on PC - Google Project Hosting
10:23 Experimentonomen meow
10:24 Electricguy hmm. seems like it's pretty much shoveling out the raw controller data to the USB port
10:24 Electricguy i think you need some sort of driver on your computer that tells the computer that it's a game controller
10:25 Experimentonomen blegh
10:27 Electricguy doesn't it say anyhing about that in the description?
10:27 Experimentonomen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzsqjVyLzE0 <-- and those who have done it, ofc do not tell how they did it
10:27 BotSteve Title: Using NES controller on PC with an Arduino - YouTube
10:27 Electricguy lol. i HATE that
10:28 Electricguy it's almost always like that when i find fun and interesting Arduino projects on youtube..
10:28 Electricguy they could at least have linked to the source code!
10:28 Experimentonomen i guess the one i loaded into my ardu is one of those for controlling the ledpin and servo motors and such
10:29 Experimentonomen as there is no description for it
10:29 Electricguy but then it shouldn't be spitting out serial data
10:30 Experimentonomen http://www.instructables.com/id/Convert-a-NES-gamepad-to-USB-with-Arduino/ <-- and i hate how u have to be a paid member to see the interesting bit
10:30 BotSteve Title: Convert a NES gamepad to USB with Arduino
10:30 Thermoelectric Eh?
10:30 Thermoelectric Which bit can't you see?
10:30 Electricguy paid?
10:30 Electricguy it's totally free to register
10:30 Thermoelectric Yeah, and you don't need to.
10:31 Experimentonomen but then again that one doesent use the usb on the ardu, but rather spits out usb on the digital io pins
10:31 Electricguy and i can see everything without being logged in
10:31 Experimentonomen i cannot open the pdf there without getting prompted with "upgrade to pro today" and "alrewady a member?" and a login screen
10:31 Electricguy ah
10:31 Thermoelectric Just view the instructable without the PDF, the PDF is a pro feature.
10:32 Electricguy yeah.. registering is free
10:32 Electricguy yeah, the PDF shows exactly the same thing as the "wiev all steps on one page" function
10:32 Experimentonomen and that one turns out to be useless anyways
10:33 Electricguy get a USB cable and some shit and hook it up as shown then :P
10:33 Electricguy then it's going to work! :)
10:37 Experimentonomen http://www.instructables.com/id/USB-NES-controller-with-an-arduino/?ALLSTEPS <-- im tryin this one now
10:37 BotSteve Title: USB NES controller with an arduino!
10:38 Experimentonomen i'd guess the "processing" part of it is the "pc gamepad" driver"
10:38 Electricguy oki
10:38 Electricguy myeah
10:39 Experimentonomen *sniffle**sneeze**sniffle*
10:39 Experimentonomen i have already loaded the ardu, not the tx led does not resp9ond to burtton pressings :/
10:40 Electricguy try opening the serial monitor
10:41 Experimentonomen ok the serial monitor does show stuff on all but one button
10:41 Electricguy mkay
11:10 Experimentonomen hm doesent work :/
11:11 Experimentonomen and i have a feeling its the windows 7 thing
11:11 Electricguy ah
11:11 Electricguy myeah might be
11:11 Experimentonomen when i run the processing sketch, the TX led lights up briefly
11:11 Electricguy mkay
11:12 Experimentonomen and nothing of that in the demo video happens
11:12 Electricguy then it may be transmitting data like mad
11:13 Electricguy but yeah, it may be windows 7
11:13 Experimentonomen though it may also be the wrong ardy, looks like i need the 168 rather than the 328
11:14 Electricguy should'nt be any difference
11:14 Electricguy as they are full compatible
11:15 Electricguy fluuy*
11:15 Electricguy FFS!
11:15 Electricguy FULLY!
11:15 Electricguy there we go :P

12:27 Experimentonomen joined ##thegeekgroup
12:28 Experimentonomen hm same button does not work on both my nes controllers :/
12:28 Electricguy hmm... strange
12:28 Experimentonomen what are the odds that the same button on two controllers is busted ?
12:28 Electricguy most unlikely
12:28 Experimentonomen feels more like a code error to me
12:29 Electricguy yeah

14:50 BotSteve HighMan: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=FRUIT&amp;defid=26123
14:50 HighMan masterofmonks, ^
14:51 Electricguy are you trying to tell Mom that you're gay?
14:51 HighMan No.
14:51 HighMan He calld me a fruit.
14:51 Electricguy ah. so he's calling you homosexual! :D
14:51 Electricguy how adorable! lol
14:54 masterofmonks Actually I was going more for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fruit
14:54 BotSteve Title: Fruit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
14:55 HighMan Eh-Heh
14:57 masterofmonks Besides I could have been really mean and called you Richard Simmons or Seroster.
15:15 * Experimentonomen wishes he was better at arduino code so he could see where in the code the error is that prevents the A button from working
15:17 Electricguy ok, i have mounted a heat sink double the size on the class A test amp
15:17 Electricguy shouldn't need any fan now
15:18 Electricguy i have also found out that Ericsson Eripower modules are AWESOME to bias the amp with
15:18 Electricguy holds a steady bias even if the PSU fuctuates
15:19 Experimentonomen lol i read that as "fucktuates :P
15:20 Electricguy woops. forgot the L :P
15:38 Lt_Lemming so... epic win in ##electronics earlier :-P
15:38 Lt_Lemming and hence the change in rank
15:38 Lt_Lemming [23:39:04] <kevs926> how do i explain to my cousin that this chocolate from japan is safe?  (he believes it has radiation)
15:38 Lt_Lemming [23:39:57] <Sgt_Lemming> lol, by telling him that banana's are more radioactive than it
15:38 Lt_Lemming [23:40:51] <Sgt_Lemming> if you want to prove it, go into a DARK room, the darker the better, and point your mobile phone camera at the chocolate and then at a banana or a smoke detector
15:38 Lt_Lemming [23:41:12] <Sgt_Lemming> you should be able to see the amount of noise on the camera change with the higher radiation objects
15:38 Lt_Lemming [23:41:54] <nathan7> Sgt_Lemming: ..you're awesome
15:38 Lt_Lemming [23:41:59] <Sgt_Lemming> heh

15:38 Lt_Lemming [23:42:23] <nathan7> I HEREBY PROMOTE YOU TO.. err..
15:38 Lt_Lemming [23:42:37] <nathan7> I have no idea about military ranks, go promote yourself
15:42 Electricguy lol
15:42 Electricguy seriously, DO bananas give iff radioactive crap?
15:42 Electricguy would be fun to know :P
15:45 Electricguy LOL. they really are! :P
15:45 Electricguy cool!
15:52 Experimentonomen bah
15:55 * Experimentonomen looks at Electricguy and thinks *you'd had this figured out in 5 seconds*
15:55 Electricguy probably not. lol
15:56 Electricguy as i don't know how NES controllers work internally

16:04 Hackbat joined ##thegeekgroup
16:06 Electricguy hmm, what version of the Arduino software do you have?
16:07 Electricguy (it says on the top bar)
16:08 Electricguy like Arduino 0022
16:08 Electricguy or1.0 if you got that version
16:10 Electricguy Experimentonomen, *poke*
16:37 KB3NZQ joined ##thegeekgroup
16:40 Experimentonomen i use 0022 as the newer one doesent support the byte command

17:17 Seroster Ohai
17:17 Seroster Overtones in AC
17:18 Seroster How are they mainly formed? Big engines?
17:18 Seroster I'm thinking about the potential to become an electrical terrorist by making insane overtones that kills electronics.  Hypothetically.
17:22 Electricguy Experimentonomen, mkay
17:23 Electricguy well, i really don't know how it's supposed to work.. so yeh..
17:26 SparkyProjects Not going to get into potential terrorist activities, even if hypothetical
17:27 Electricguy heh. DO IT! so he can kill his own stuff too :P
17:51 Seroster Lol
17:51 Seroster Thing is I've never heard of an electrical terrorist, so I wonder if it's even possible
17:53 Electricguy never heard of EMP cannons? XD
17:53 Electricguy these are basically electrical terrorist weapons.. :)
17:56 Seroster Not heard of anyone fucking with mains
17:56 Seroster Btw, I'm going to climb that sculpture
17:56 Electricguy lol
17:57 Electricguy do it :D
17:57 Electricguy if i lived near you i would fucking video it :P
17:59 Seroster_ joined ##thegeekgroup
18:00 Electricguy ooh nice!
18:00 Electricguy i just installed The Dude on my server management laptop..
18:00 Electricguy and saved a backupfile from the work i did on this computer
18:01 Electricguy and just loaded the backup file on the laptop. and it just popped up exactly as i made it on this machine :)
18:01 Electricguy neat!
18:10 Seroster_ oo
18:28 Seroster_ Screw having 25c
18:28 Seroster_ I got 28
18:28 Electricguy 25C is pretty shitty when you got a cold.. XD
18:28 Electricguy and my CPU temp is up to 46C D:
18:29 Electricguy at least i cleaned out my CPU cooler today

19:57 Experimentonomen sux so bad that i got sick just as most of the guys at work went on vacation :/
19:58 Chipguy lol
19:58 Chipguy ur sick too ?
19:58 Chipguy ooo
19:58 Chipguy seems something going around in sweden
19:59 Experimentonomen half of yesterday i was literally dead
20:38 LittleCreature joined ##thegeekgroup
20:44 Seroster SparkyProjects, I wanna chat about overtones! =D
20:46 SparkyProjects Nope
20:46 SparkyProjects Overtones are harmonics, to generate harmonics you would need a generator, and full access to the frid so you can feed it, so not even feasible
20:46 Seroster Crud
20:46 Seroster But
20:47 Seroster What causes unintentional overtones?
20:47 SparkyProjects Huge synchronous motors that go out of sync i assume
20:48 Seroster Yeah, that would be it...
20:48 Seroster I gotta get a huge motor xD
20:49 SparkyProjects If you get a huge one that you can run on your supply, it wouldn't be big enough to backfeed to the local supply
20:50 Seroster Remember, it's hypothetical

21:02 tonsofpcs didn't win?
21:02 BotSteve tonsofpcs: I have the following messages for you:
21:02 BotSteve At 30 Jun 21:22Z, BatSteve asked me to tell tonsofpcs that yes, the bot delivers multiple messages.
21:02 BotSteve At 30 Jun 21:22Z, BatSteve asked me to tell tonsofpcs At least according to my extremely limited testing
21:02 tonsofpcs BotSteve: tell BatSteve yay!
21:02 BotSteve tonsofpcs: I'll pass that on when Batsteve is around.
21:02 tonsofpcs BotSteve: tell BatSteve yay! yay!
21:02 BotSteve tonsofpcs: I'll pass that on when Batsteve is around.
21:02 tonsofpcs BotSteve: tell BatSteve yay! yay! yay!
21:02 BotSteve tonsofpcs: I'll pass that on when BatSteve is around.
21:02 tonsofpcs BotSteve: tell BotSteve oops.
21:02 BotSteve Sorry, I'm supposed to ignore any voices I hear in my head.
21:03 masterofmonks tonsofpcs, So it is you on on TWiRT?
21:03 tonsofpcs masterofmonks: yes.
21:03 masterofmonks Thought so.
21:03 tonsofpcs well, not on, but referenced.
21:03 masterofmonks Right.
21:03 tonsofpcs right.  I sit in the chatroom.
21:04 tonsofpcs You know they got cancelled, right?
21:04 masterofmonks Really?
21:04 masterofmonks Part of the rearranging of shows?
21:05 masterofmonks But then again, shows come and go frmo TWiT fairly often.
21:05 masterofmonks from*
21:05 tonsofpcs well, twit dropped them
21:05 tonsofpcs *finds 'official' announcements*
21:06 tonsofpcs *curses ISP for DNS spoofing*

21:07 BotSteve Title: This Week in Radio Tech - TWiRT Homepage - TWiRT is on Vacation - Back in September!
21:07 Seroster Hi tonsofpcs!
21:09 tonsofpcs hi Seroster!
21:09 Seroster Sup homie?
21:10 tonsofpcs back from vacation, lightroom beta expired... gotta find video editing software to use that isn't as tedious as media composer, and I need to figure out why my HTPC's UPS didn't come back on after a power failure but the server's UPS rode through
21:10 masterofmonks tonsofpcs, Ah, so it was part of the rearrangement bit.
21:10 tonsofpcs ya
21:11 tonsofpcs they really should have a 24/7 'tv channel' with edited/final shows and breaks in-between and a 'live in progress' chanel (or two or twenty)
21:11 Seroster lol
21:11 tonsofpcs actual live shows like the weekend radio show and such could still be live on the tv channel
21:11 Seroster True
21:12 Experimentonomen nite peepz
21:12 masterofmonks Which is understandable, because shows do come and go, and some have a too highly focused traget audience to gain much revenue.
21:12 tonsofpcs then Leo (et al) could sell the TV channel
21:13 tonsofpcs and then even shows that don't garner sponsorships of their own would create revenue due to head/tail spots
21:27 tonsofpcs anyway, was there a particular question for me about something or were you just curious, masterofmonks?

21:51 Seroster aw
21:52 masterofmonks tonsofpcs, Just making sure it was you.
22:24 tonsofpcs :)
22:24 tonsofpcs I do have a relatively common name.
22:27 masterofmonks Well how many Eric Adler's are radio engineers?
22:28 tonsofpcs at least 3.
22:28 HighMan joined ##thegeekgroup
22:28 HighMan )%)!!*@$
22:28 HighMan SHIT
22:28 masterofmonks And how many of them do I know?
22:28 tonsofpcs at least 1.
22:28 masterofmonks Precicely one.
22:28 tonsofpcs (note: 3 is from page 1 of a google search)
22:29 tonsofpcs "Eric L. Adler
22:29 tonsofpcs for contributions to the analysis of acoustic surface-wave propagation and to electrical engineering undergraduate teaching"
22:29 tonsofpcs (IEEE Fellow class of 1989)
22:29 Electricguy bedtime
22:29 Electricguy night geeklings! :D
22:29 masterofmonks Also I happen to know you frequent the TWiT network.
22:30 tonsofpcs all sorts of RF stuff from an Eric D. Adler of the US Army
22:30 tonsofpcs and me :)
22:30 tonsofpcs (J. if it matters)
22:31 tonsofpcs there's also an Eric Adler in some sort of tech role at Nielsen
22:32 masterofmonks I was a Nielsen famly for a while... I think when they realized that I didn't watch TV they decided to stop paying me.
22:32 masterofmonks Of course I told them that from the beginning, but they said "Oh, we're sure you will watch something."
22:33 tonsofpcs and there's "Eric Adler Research" run by the same nielsen guy
22:34 tonsofpcs actually, nielsen has a very high turnover rate of 'viewers' and 'households' for statistical reasons.  They will not dump you unless your forms are repeatedly rejected for not being filled properly.  So long as you fill them properly (number of people, race, age, location, etc.) they'll send them for the stats periods
22:35 masterofmonks True, but with 6 people in a house and nobody watched TV for 3 months...
22:35 tonsofpcs 3 months? you must be in a top-50 that for some reason isn
22:35 tonsofpcs t 100% PM
22:36 masterofmonks PM?
22:36 tonsofpcs People Meter
22:36 tonsofpcs they give you a little black box (or multiple) instead of a diary
22:37 masterofmonks We had a thing that sat on top of the television that was never on, and a diary.
22:37 masterofmonks This was like 6 years ago.
22:37 KB3NZQ joined ##thegeekgroup
22:38 tonsofpcs anyway, 3 months is probably about the longest anyone is a 'nielsen family'
22:38 masterofmonks It was about three months after that when we went "Why are we even paying for Direct TV if we never watch it?"
22:39 tonsofpcs since the most surveyed markets only have quarterly books and sweeps (ok, they have daily results too but that's national and it is run a bit separate)
22:39 tonsofpcs we have a fancy encoder for nielsen so that the PM can detect if someone is watching us.
