wpwrakkristianpaul: military death rays ?06:29
rejoncool, we are still on the front page of register: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/09/28/milkymist/07:49
kyakcould someone explain me the following C construct: "register int c = cnt, sum;"? Especially the "sum" part..10:12
larscist the same as register int c = cnt; register int sum;10:14
kyakah, good10:17
kyaklarsc: what would happen if sum is not initialized?10:17
kyakit is not even defined, in fact...10:17
kyakit is defined10:18
kyaklarsc: never mind :) Thank you!10:19
larscok :)10:19
tuxbrain_HxxHhzoHey hardware gurus :)13:49
tuxbrainneed assesment for a cam,13:49
wpwrakwhat kind of cam ? still image, video, surveillance, girl's bathroom, ... ?13:50
tuxbrainwich model can fit the following needs, 320x180 res, able to use with an atmel chip (Uart, SPI) about one pic each 3 seconds or so13:51
wpwrakpheew. no clue ;-)13:52
wpwraklet's see if digi-key have something ...13:52
wpwraknope. they just have standard camera modules. typically VGA or better. and not SPI but a parallel bus.13:57
steve|mtuxbrain: there are some snap-on cameras for older phone models that use i2c and are quite populat for microcontroller use13:58
steve|ma good candidate is the Siemes S55 camera module13:58
steve|m"Siemens IQP-500"13:59
tuxbrainsteve|m: where I can found it?14:00
steve|mebay germany has many of them new, but also ebay US:14:01
tuxbrainsteve|m: any data sheet or example of usage of this cam, it looks prety good :)14:05
steve|mtuxbrain: http://www.mikrocontroller.net/topic/16874 (german unfortunately, but see the attachments, there's a python script etc.)14:08
steve|mit uses serial communication actually, not i2c14:08
steve|mIQP-530 works as well14:11
kristianpaulwpwrak: i was looking for something less agressive14:44
tuxbrainmmm I also need the UART of the micro for Zigbee comm, so an I2c solution should be better than serial14:45
wpwrakkristianpaul: heh ;-) what i meant to say is that your question is a bit unclear. e.g., were you asking what services are physically possible ? or what already exists in these bands ? etc.14:46
kristianpaulyes i know is unclear .. and yes i afaik dont have all the infomration you ask me14:49
wpwrakkristianpaul: so what is the context ? do you have a TV tuner and are wondering what you cuold do with it ?14:53
wpwrakwolfspraul: btw, when will xiangfu be back ? next week ?15:59

kristianpaulwpwrak: nope17:31
kristianpaulwpwrak: check it your self better http://www.mintic.gov.co/index.php/mn-news/413-20112609espectro17:32
kristianpaulabout tv tunner, i already know what to do with it :)17:33
wpwrakaha ! you want to have a justification for requesting a bit of the spectrum. sort of kristianpaul's vanity frequency ;-)18:17
kristianpaulnot for my but may be for local floss comunity use18:18
wpwrakhmm. maybe ask in your local radio amateur community if they have any ideas.18:29
kristianpaulthre is no such us thing here afaik :(18:31
kristianpaulwell, still some people alive in the capital of other two provinces18:33
wpwrakmaybe there are more then :)18:36
wpwrakmaybe you also have some people who interconnect over larger distances with WLAN 18:39
wpwraksomething like this: http://www.buenosaireslibre.org/18:43
kristianpaulYes, there this groups, well i already passed the link i gave you to then yday :)18:59

qi-botThe build was successfull, see images here: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/compile-log/openwrt-xburst.full_system-10022011-1651/20:58
wpwrakwolfspraul: interesting ... octoparts is just four people: http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2011/10/03/octopart-is-hiring/21:20
wpwrakwolfspraul: that would explain why there's little else but spidering there21:20
