08:22 Chipguy back from breakfast
08:23 Chipguy had tea and pornflakes
08:23 Chipguy err cornflakes of yourse
09:01 CaptainNiobe umm... probs tomorrow... i've been surfing fb all bloody day lol
09:01 CaptainNiobe oops, w/c... CRAP! hate that
09:12 einball o_O
09:12 einball COFFEE
09:13 * einball freaks out
09:15 CaptainNiobe around 32 hours or more awake, coffee don't do much... lol...
09:29 Electricguy go yo bed...
09:29 Electricguy to*
09:33 CaptainNiobe i will... shortly... :D
09:33 CaptainNiobe in spite of my not liking sleeping, there always is a time when pulling the covers up over myself and falling into that state of unconsciousness does become irresistible... and i'm almost there... :)
09:37 einball You don't like to sleep so you try to prevent it until you reach your breakdown point?
09:37 Electricguy doesn't sound all that smart..
09:37 Electricguy and it's not really that you get bored when you sleep.. it's just sLEEP and wake the fuck up.. it's as simple as that :P
09:38 einball One does not simply sleep! :O
09:38 Electricguy i do :P
09:38 einball It's more like a ritual ...
09:38 CaptainNiobe more or less... it works though, when i get to that point of tiredness i can drop off within a couple of minutes... if i'm not seriously tired, i can lie in bed trying to sleep for 2 hours or so... though most night it takes around half an hour when i don't push to stay up
09:39 Electricguy if you have that hard to sleep.. go see a doctor
09:39 einball You get in bed, wrap your blanket around you and then ... Think of something you'd not think during the day and sleep.
09:39 einball The morning ritual is even harder :P
09:40 einball consisting of many repetitions of "kill the alarm clock and go to bed again" :D
09:40 CaptainNiobe nope, for the simple reason that my own mind prevents me falling asleep... if i can stop myself thinking, all is good, if i can't... that's when it takes a while
09:41 Electricguy when i start to think about stuff when i try to sleep.. it generally helps to open my eyes for some reason.. :P all the thoughts are just gone XD
09:41 CaptainNiobe on teh rare occasion i'll be trying to go to sleep when my mind's ticking and i get an idea that makes me excited... pita, 'cause then all the tiredness leaves (for about an hour) and i HAVE to get up again... lol
09:42 Electricguy i spent alomst 4 hours in bed a couple of nights ago.. rtying to sleep XD
09:42 Electricguy trying*
09:43 Electricguy THAT was fucking depressing.. cause my body was so tired that i could barely stand up.. but my brain was REALLY awake.. XD
09:43 Electricguy fucking annoying
09:44 CaptainNiobe but then, the mind can be a wonderful thing even when asleep... i once went to bed wondering how the hell i was going to write a sexually orientated roleplay post without breaking probroads tos... woke up the next morning with it perfectly laid out in my head how i was going to write it, and no bloody idea how it worked itself out while i was asleep! :D
09:44 Electricguy lol :P
09:45 CaptainNiobe but yeah, i know what you mean... turning off the brain isn't exactly like hitting a lightswitch... :-\
09:45 Electricguy hahha nope
09:45 Crey joined ##thegeekgroup
09:47 einball Electricguy: now think the other way round. you are tired and can't sleep because your body is fully awake
09:48 Electricguy why would i think that way?
09:48 tonsofpcs hi
09:48 Electricguy ahoy
09:48 einball happens to me before the exams
09:48 CaptainNiobe ok, my sims are home and happy, imma sleep now... lol... night guys (and hey tonsofpcs :D)
09:48 Electricguy o...key o_O
09:49 Electricguy night
09:49 einball I study all day, don't move my body because I sit on one spot all the day ...
09:49 einball n8 CaptainNiobe
09:49 tonsofpcs SarahM: you're not fully assimilated until you treat wounds with superglue
09:57 IgnitionHamster LOL! sign fail :P http://i.imgur.com/wh6VQ.jpg
10:42 Electricguy yay! more coffee :D
10:42 Electricguy after this i'm going to finish the Arduino sequencer shield
11:06 einball :)
11:26 einball Electricguy: how does it sequence? Or what do I have to think of when you talk about a "sequencer shield"
11:38 Electricguy it's a programmable 8 step seqeuncer..
11:38 Electricguy thats it XD

13:42 Null_Route wow
14:29 * Electricguy is quite bored
14:29 Experimentonomen Electricguy, feel free to figure out how to add midi input to that mozzi thing i posted yesterday ;)
14:29 Electricguy lol nah XD
14:30 Electricguy don't feel like doing anything sadly.. :P
14:30 Experimentonomen the guy i talked to it yet to respond and judging from how quick he responded yesterday, i doubt he is gonna come through with his "promise"
14:30 Electricguy you never know :P
14:31 Experimentonomen yesterday he responded within like 10 minutes, but now he hasent responded in like 12-24 hours
14:31 Electricguy it's called SLEEP and real life outside of the computer :P
14:31 Experimentonomen hes in the UK
14:31 Electricguy ok, real life then.. :P
14:32 Electricguy and possibly internet malfunction or power outage
14:32 Experimentonomen or maybe he actually had to write a midi input code that actually works
14:32 Electricguy yeash
14:41 Electricguy HAHAHA! little beasty subwoofer :P http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1otcojQkfnQ&feature=related
14:41 BotSteve Title: 6w3v3 tline - YouTube
14:53 Experimentonomen but can it rattle the trunk lid at the same kinda freqs as a 12-18" at 2-3kW a piece ?
14:54 Electricguy LOL hell no XD
14:54 Electricguy there is quite a difference between a pair of 65Watt 6" woofs and a pair of 18" at a couple of kW.. XD
14:54 Electricguy you can bearly compare that :P

15:38 Electricguy i have realized that studio headphones are not good for iPods and such devices..
15:38 Electricguy all they do is making you realize how fucking bad everything really sounds.. XD
15:40 Experimentonomen haha
15:41 SparkyProjects Probably not helped by the impedance being very different, i would guess ipod headphones might be way more than 8 ohms
15:41 Electricguy usuallt 16-32Ohms
15:41 Electricguy usually*
15:42 Lt_Lemming http://imgur.com/gallery/56BLY
15:42 Electricguy imgur is overloaded..
15:42 BotSteve Title: Colors are different for everyone - Imgur
15:43 Experimentonomen last 2 sets of earphones i bought were 16 ohm
15:43 Experimentonomen and some really old ones i got at "work" have really low volume compared to the ones from the zap sr500
15:43 SparkyProjects My mp3 player is 32 ohms
15:43 Electricguy the supplied ones with the china media player? XD
15:44 Electricguy i got one pair of earbuds that are 16 Ohms. all my other headphones and earbuds are 32
15:44 Electricguy seems like cheap ones are 16 for some reason
15:44 Experimentonomen i havent measured the ones i got at work but i'd assume they are 32ohms as that was most common in the 90's
15:45 Electricguy oki
15:45 Electricguy yeah most likely
15:45 Electricguy i think 16 became more common with these players powered with 1.5-3V
15:46 SparkyProjects I think maybe it's more to do with battery life, 16 ohms would take more power to drive than 32
15:46 Electricguy yeah
15:48 Experimentonomen meaning more batteries to buy = more profit fer the manufs
15:49 Experimentonomen seem to be all 8-16ohms now on head/ear phones
15:49 Experimentonomen while in the 90's it was 32-600 ohms
15:49 Electricguy all good ones i have seen are 32 Ohm.. :P
15:50 Experimentonomen and koss white sux
15:50 Experimentonomen really tinny sound with no bass what so ever
15:50 Experimentonomen and the old ones i got at work are not much better
15:50 Electricguy yeah and koss spark plug only got bass... XD
15:51 Experimentonomen unless tinny sound is just the amp in the psp simply not having the current to move the diaphragms
15:52 Electricguy might be
15:52 Experimentonomen though the ones from the zap sr500 were deafeningly loud in comparison
15:52 Electricguy try with some other phones
15:52 Electricguy the ZAP SR500 got like a 2x1Watt output stage.. XD
15:52 Experimentonomen i meant with the PSP
15:52 Electricguy i think it's a amp chip for laptop speakers
15:53 Electricguy ah ok
15:53 Experimentonomen the zap is long gone, remember?
15:53 Electricguy i hooked all my shitty cheap headphones up to a big amp a while ago :P
15:53 Experimentonomen i know¨
15:53 Experimentonomen i watched it
15:53 Electricguy yes i know.. but they still got one hell of a headphone driver :P
15:54 Experimentonomen there was no separate hp amp ic that i could find upon autopsy
15:54 Experimentonomen i traced the tyraces back to the main cpu
15:55 Experimentonomen what i thought was the hp amp ic was a really teeny tiny little ic that upon probing seemed more like a voltage regulator ic
15:55 Experimentonomen way too small for 2x1W too
15:56 Electricguy well.. i scrapped a laptop a while back.. it had a 2x2Watt amp in a SOP-16 package XD
15:57 Experimentonomen well this ic was like 2x2mm in size with like 0.15mm diam legs
15:57 Electricguy lol oki

17:00 SparkyProjects You could put a flier through your neighbours doors asking for old gear, tell them what you want it for, and to contact you before just dumping it on you.
17:00 SparkyProjects You would obviously have to take any remnants to the recycling  centre afterwards
17:00 SparkyProjects It would mean your neighbours can save their journey, and any profit you make from scrap pays for you to scrap
17:06 Electricguy yeah
17:06 Electricguy too bad my neighbours are so old and boring XD
17:13 mashpriborintorg right now tho, people are getting rid of lots of stuff tho, it's incredible all what I did pick up in the last 2-3 months

17:19 mashpriborintorg do you have a trick to crack open welded plastic power bricks ?
17:19 Electricguy yepp
17:20 Electricguy put the brick with the weld facing upwards
17:20 Electricguy then hit the weld with a hammer
17:20 \_Obtuse joined ##thegeekgroup
17:20 Electricguy it may sound crude.. and is IT.. but it works
17:21 mashpriborintorg because I have one here, dropping it 20 times on a concrete fllor didn't do anything :p
17:21 Electricguy only hit one half of the casing though. so you smash the weld apart
17:21 Electricguy lol :P
17:22 mashpriborintorg oki got it
17:22 mashpriborintorg A hydraulic press should be handy sometimes
17:22 Electricguy aahahah yeah :P
17:25 Seroster börk
17:26 Experimentonomen jävla burkarsle :P
17:26 mashpriborintorg I hope to get at least 50-60 euros of scrap wires, copper and alu
17:26 Experimentonomen ;)
17:27 Electricguy Turk på burk!

20:07 CaptainNiobe morning
20:08 einball go' aften
20:10 Electricguy hmm.. perhaps i'll add a LCD to my arduino sequencer shield.. just realized that as i'm using a MEGA i got heaps of GPIO left to play with..
20:12 einball why only 8 steps and not 16 or 32? :)
20:12 einball You could add plenty more buttons
20:12 Electricguy cause it's based on a thing thats not supposed to be made with a MEGA
20:12 einball hm, k
20:12 Electricguy and because there wasn't enough room on the shield
20:13 einball Addon boards would be the way to go :)
20:13 einball Anyway - Iam eager to see it
20:13 Electricguy well, here is a quick crappy video of the thing working http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2XRZ9h8foA
20:13 BotSteve Title: Arduino Punk Console MEGA shield - YouTube
20:13 Electricguy going to tinker with an LCD tomorrow
20:14 injektion joined ##thegeekgroup
20:14 Electricguy this thing is supposed to use a serial display.. but as i don't have any floating around i'm going to try a parallel one instead
20:14 Electricguy got the big ass 2x16 one from my server
20:14 tonsofpcs hi
20:14 Electricguy hey hey
20:15 einball \o/
20:15 einball nice one
20:15 Electricguy myeah it turned out pretty nice
20:24 Electricguy oook... not so sure about that.. XD
20:24 Electricguy the LCD is longer than the shield XD
20:24 Electricguy yes, it's a big 2X16 LCD
20:28 Electricguy well, i can always make it itno a genral purpose LCD
20:30 Electricguy if i hadn't put the audio output jack where i did i could have mounted the LCD though
20:38 injektion I installed 7 x64 instead of 7 x86 >__<
20:39 Electricguy isn't it a good idea to double check that before you screw up? :P
20:40 injektion I forgot that one of the laptops the women's shelter used had 2GB of RAM
20:41 injektion Because it hasn't been used in over 2 years
20:48 HighMan AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
