whitequarka friend of mine wants to use some own NIH-syndrome-induced protocol for a wireless sensor15:42
whitequarkany reasons to convince him to use 6lowpan?15:42
wolfspraulhe would probably not agree with your NIH-syndrome diagnosis15:56
wolfspraulif he likes he can come to this channel and we think about the pros and cons of rf options for his sensors15:56
wolfspraulI think he should go the shortest path to a working solution for him15:56
wolfsprauland maybe what he currently has in mind will do just that for him? don't know...15:57
whitequarkwolfspraul: do you recall what I've said about russians and their English skills?..15:58
wpwrakdepends a bit on what platform he uses and how much work he plans to put into it. if it's a platform already supported by linux or contiki, then it should be easy. for some one-man diy project, of course, whatever works will do :)15:58
whitequarkoh, he personally hates linux and likes RSX-11 a lot, but that's not the reason here15:58
whitequarkhe says that the standard protocols are bloated and not energy efficient, which I doubt, but I haven't worked with 6lowpan, for example15:59
whitequark(bloated as both in code size and packet size)15:59
whitequarkand he needs guaranteed delivery for at least firmware upgrade16:00
wpwrakgood luck with that ;-)16:01
whitequark(well, some of things he says about linux are quite valid. for example, the absence of async I/O)16:02
wolfspraulseems very opinionated16:05
wolfspraulin theory of course if he makes his own semiconductors etc he can implement all he wants in hardware and have the perfect energy efficiency16:05
wolfspraul28nm lithography of course16:06
wolfspraulif he wants to get something working soon he will have to take a different path and reasoning16:06
whitequarkhe's not a fanatic, and actually he's kind of asked me for advice on what to use--he's not sure that the NIH route is the way to go16:07
whitequarknow that I look at it, 6lowpan may be really bloated for this application16:10
ArtyomKristianpaul hello! :)20:48
kristianpaulwoakas: hey21:20
kristianpaulwoakas: if you still interested in a nanonote with amazon it will be 94usd plus 40usd shipping handling with coordinadorausa21:21
woakaskristianpaul: yes21:34
woakaskristianpaul: you want one?21:35
kristianpaulwoakas: i have mine,no more for now but i can give you mail for other guys interested..21:46
kristianpaulat least this time from the USA is cheaper than from Taiwan it seems21:47
