01:53 Keknom Anyone here build battlebots?
01:53 BatSteve nope, wanted to once but never got motivated to
01:54 Keknom building lighter ones really isn't that hard.., tad pricey though
01:58 BatSteve There was something I saw a while ago about software-based battlebot algorithms
01:58 BatSteve Where you write the AI for the software and then you run two programs against each other to see which one is stronger
01:59 BatSteve Never did that either.  Man, I'm a slacker.
01:59 Keknom I am a slacker in regards to coding.., last robot I programmed had a tendency to death ram objects but not do to much regarding an actual task
02:01 BatSteve haha
02:01 Keknom did make my own linux distro out of boredom, but not really usable....
02:06 BatSteve Really?  Me too!  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damn_Vulnerable_Linux
02:06 BotSteve Title: Damn Vulnerable Linux - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
02:07 Keknom I've seen that distro before, mine was more just something to see if I could..., and to learn more about linux not to actual make anything that would possibly aid another person
02:07 BatSteve ::nod::
02:08 Keknom but your's made it on to a listing of unique linux distros
02:09 Keknom here it is
02:09 Keknom http://www.goodgearguide.com.au/article/351651/12_most_interesting_unusual_useful_linux_distros/
02:09 BotSteve Title: 12 of the most interesting, unusual and useful Linux distros - Linux, open source, operating systems - Good Gear Guide
02:09 BatSteve I was lying / joking.  I didn't actually have a hand in DVL.
02:10 BatSteve Sorry for giving you the wrong idea.
02:10 Keknom its fine
02:10 tonsofpcs wait, so DVL is hackthissite on a CD?
02:12 BatSteve myep!
02:12 BatSteve aw man...hackthissite...yet ANOTHER cool thing that I saw but never had time to do.
02:12 tonsofpcs damn, now i need to remember my hackthissite login
02:12 BatSteve I'm getting depressed now.  ):
02:13 tonsofpcs i probably signed up with hotmail...
02:13 tonsofpcs microsoft killed my hotmail account because it was 'hacked' within 5 seconds of them resetting the password, before they gave me the password....

08:01 CaptainNiobe joined ##thegeekgroup
08:32 Electricguy WHY do people use hashtags on FaceBook?
08:33 Null_Route to future-proof their posts for when Facebook adds HashTags?
08:33 Electricguy perhaps
08:34 Electricguy but in true FB spirit, as people ask for hastags, FB is going to add another useless function instead..

18:36 HighMan Electricguy, I don't see it... I'm high.... Man..
19:03 Experimentonomen aand miditech did not have any boards left that would fit my keyboard so it will not be repairable in an economical way
19:05 Experimentonomen i did find a repeating signal on the midi connector though, but not on the pins specified as the two output pins and it doesent seem to change when pressing keys, but then again thats hard to tell on a scope/flashing led
19:06 Experimentonomen and there were no windows 7 drivers for the soundblaster live 5.1 soundcard
19:07 Experimentonomen so i cannot test to see if there is signs of life or just the death rattles
19:09 Experimentonomen and i dont have anywhere near enuf programming knowlege and skills to make an arduino take the main boards place
19:13 Experimentonomen unless they gave that answer simply cuz i mentioned i had already replaced parts on the board
19:24 Experimentonomen i did answser with what a repair at this stage would mean and at what cost

20:34 HighMan ^Ignore that
20:51 Experimentonomen turns out the midi out is actually working, added the opticoupler circuit and i get stuff on the scope corresponding to pressing a key
20:52 Electricguy nice
20:55 Experimentonomen but the arduino thing i found doesent work though, its supposaed to play the note pressed, but it doesent, it just foes weeeplopeeeplopeeeplopeeee with the same frequency regardless so maybe it isent sending actual note data, but rather just random garbage
20:55 Electricguy hmm ok
20:55 Electricguy get one of these cheap ass MIDI to USB adapters and find out :P

20:57 Electricguy do the little LED next to the RX/TX LEDs flash when you press a key?
20:57 Experimentonomen Cprossu, u crazy :P
20:58 Experimentonomen yes
20:58 Electricguy mkay
20:58 Electricguy what do you use on the computer to create midi? :P
20:59 Experimentonomen i found an arduino thing that takes a midi input and lights the led on pin 13 when midi is received on the RX pin
20:59 Experimentonomen assuming it doesent just trigger on any garmage
21:00 Electricguy myeah
21:00 Electricguy it may do that
21:00 Experimentonomen i dunno if the arduino sketch is sophisticated enuf to only trigger on midi data or on just any kinda random pulse trains
21:01 Electricguy hard to know
21:01 Electricguy i'm not in to how a MIDI pulse train is supposed to look
21:01 Electricguy so i got no idea
21:07 Experimentonomen http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1187962258/ <-- lol on the thread posters nick :D
21:07 BotSteve Title: Arduino Forum - works: MIDI-IN: code + schematics
21:08 Electricguy LOL
21:08 Electricguy i highly admire his paint skillz :P
21:09 Experimentonomen that one would also visualize if its actual midi data by lighting up individual leds
21:09 Electricguy neat
21:10 Experimentonomen but 8 leds on a 40+ key keyboard, unless it restarts at led 1 after 8 keys
21:10 Experimentonomen i guess one way to find out
21:11 Electricguy TRY IT! :D
21:18 Experimentonomen
21:21 Electricguy i want my Freaduino now..

21:35 injektion I'm slowly losing it
21:35 CaptainNiobe why?
21:35 injektion Today I was told that if I do not work a 40 hour week for whatever reason even if it is not my fault I get paid minimum wage
21:35 CaptainNiobe wtf? why?
21:36 Damianz I have trouble limiting myself to 39hours a week :P
21:36 injektion It's in the ontract
21:36 injektion contract*
21:36 CaptainNiobe :-\
21:36 Electricguy 40 hour week is not bad
21:36 injektion Something tells me I am not going to have a job soon
21:37 Electricguy i worked 45 hour weeks a while back. was no problem at all
21:38 injektion I live in a right to work state and the employer has all the rights
21:40 injektion I have none
21:45 HighMan Isn't it illegal for one to pay you less than minmum wage?
21:46 HighMan Resulting in a lawsuit if neccisarey?
21:46 injektion I don't know and I'm too tired to give a damn
21:46 HighMan Eh...
21:55 Experimentonomen joined ##thegeekgroup
21:57 Experimentonomen yurk
21:57 HighMan yuck
21:57 Experimentonomen kjell & co has the midi to usb thing but they want 400sek for it :/
21:58 Seroster xD
21:58 injektion lol
21:58 Electricguy holy cuntfuck! XD
21:59 HighMan .c 400sek to usd
21:59 BotSteve 57.3016 U.S. dollars
21:59 Electricguy and you get the exact same thing from china for about 60Sek.. :P
21:59 injektion My MIDI controller has USB :P
21:59 Experimentonomen i wonder how cheap u could go on ebay before it starts becoming questionable if it even works
22:00 Cprossu up till the point you get a AT keyboard connector hot glued to a 32mb usb thumb drive
22:00 exor674 I want a 32mb thumb drive lol >_>
22:00 Cprossu I carry one around because it's the only working one I have with a hardware write protect (rofl)
22:01 Electricguy Experimentonomen, i'd say about 6 dollars
22:01 Experimentonomen http://www.ebay.com/itm/MIDI-USB-Cable-Converter-PC-to-Music-Keyboard-Adapter-/270840557848?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&amp;hash=item3f0f5af118&amp;_uhb=1#ht_1865wt_1114 <-- from usa, reputable seller and over 1000 of them sold
22:01 BotSteve Title: MIDI USB Cable Converter PC to Music Keyboard Adapter | eBay
22:01 exor674 yeah, I really need a tiny drive with HW write protect
22:02 exor674 so I can throw a SSH key on it + putty binary
22:03 Experimentonomen but the question is if these midi to usb thingies are even supported in windows 7
22:03 injektion They are
22:03 Experimentonomen how can u be so sure ?
22:03 injektion Windows 7 still supports MIDI surprisingly
22:04 Electricguy but that doesn't mean it supports the adapter from china
22:04 injektion Well it probably emulates a standard device like with HID compliant keyboards and nice
22:04 Electricguy that one Exp linked to does not say it's supported by W7
22:05 Experimentonomen so i may just have wasted 8.25 dollars
22:06 Electricguy we'll see :)

22:06 BotSteve Title: Amazon.com: EMU XMIDI 1X1 USB MIDI Interface: Electronics
22:07 Electricguy if it doesn't work, you can always sell it to someone :)
22:07 Experimentonomen injektion, thats more than i paid for the keyboard itself
22:07 injektion Wouldn't MIDI controllers be considred HID devices?
22:08 Electricguy google is your friend
22:10 Experimentonomen *SSSNEEEEZE*
22:13 injektion Well my USB MIDI keyboard is a USB composite device
22:15 Experimentonomen mine has usb too but i think the usb interface ic is dead, it gets very hot
22:18 Electricguy bedtime. night all
