#qi-hardware IRC log for Sunday, 2011-12-04

kristianpauljust thinking usb gadkey support as kbb, will be usefull to execute scripts from nanonote00:26
kristianpauljob done, no fingerprints ;-)00:26
kristianpaulseems just an idea for interesting for us http://events.ccc.de/congress/2011/Fahrplan/events/4699.en.html01:07
wpwrakhmm yes, step 1. step 2: would be to build launch facilities. you should be at a good location for that. step 3: the killer satellites.01:20
kristianpaullaunch facilities -> https://code.google.com/p/moon-20/wiki/WikiBalloon01:24
wpwrakhmm ... 20 g payload. so we'll need antimatter as energy source for the killer satellite01:30
wpwrakeven 10 g would be pretty weak, though. only about 1/5 megaton. well, if we can shape it into a narrowly focused beam ...01:33
wpwrakworld domination by brute force is difficult :-(01:34
whitequarkwpwrak: so, do you have an efficient way of gathering small (ca. 1 gram range) amounts of antimatter?02:21
whitequarkthat's cool!02:21
whitequarkis it OSHW?02:21
wpwraki wish i had. well, or maybe not :)02:30
whitequarkxiangfu: may I ask if that's your home ?04:11
whitequarkjust curious04:11
xiangfuwhitequark, no. 04:11
xiangfuwhitequark, it's Naihanli's home. 04:12
xiangfuwhitequark, I am not that rich. :D04:12
xiangfuwhitequark, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naihan_Li04:12
xiangfuwhitequark, can you open my blog: http://www.openmobilefree.net/ there are more info about that. :)04:14
whitequarkxiangfu: ah sure, I'll read it04:42
whitequarkxiangfu: this article (http://www.openmobilefree.net/?p=972) makes me go all "WTF?!"04:47
whitequarkand the link to a discussion thread in chinese isn't helpful as well :D04:48
kristianpaulPICs, lest remove some dust here15:14
wpwrakkristianpaul: wrestling with PICs ?15:59
kristianpaulnot much, actually getting ready for a dorkbot meeting in the town in two weeks16:06
wpwrak"dorkbot" nice name ;-)16:07
erikkugelsound German.16:09
rjeffrieswhile not measuring up to qi-hardware totally open philosophy, this will be a great little cheap n($35) yet powerful Linux computer when it ships in large numbers iJune-ish 201221:29
rjeffrieshttp://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/11/28/raspberry_pi/  really good article on several levels.21:29
rjeffriesassume nobody is around now... so will exit as gracefully as I know how...21:30
kristianpaulrjeffries, you used to stay more time here :-)21:53
rohnarf. stop annoying us with closes BS. http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=1077.123:22
wpwrakroh: what's surprising when trolls do what trolls do best ? :)23:27
rohwpwrak: i just checked up the facts.. the pi is not more foss than any noname china mediaplayercrud being forced to release the gpl parts. in short: its closes source.23:28
rohwe would be better off as a community to support vendors who actually release documentation and reverse the bits left out than to support something which is completely closed from the start.23:29
rohmeans from my pov, the pi is fraud.23:29
rohbroadcom driven whitewashing to try to tap the market ti serves with their also not fully open beagle and panda series.23:30
wpwrakthe pi is simply irrelevant. no matter whether it's open or not.23:31
rohjust wanted to make sure we all know the facts ;)23:31
kristianpaulpi = 13.14592... last time i knew it23:32
kristianpauloh, sure vendor non disclosure, closed plans, even just blobs for certain kernel vesions !! (come on !!)23:32
wpwrakkristianpaul: is that defined by law in your country ?23:33
kristianpaulwpwrak: no23:33
wpwrakhmm, dictated by creed then, perhaps ? :)23:33
kristianpaulhe 23:34
kristianpaulperhaps indeed ;)23:34
jow_laptopoh, broadcom is behind the pi think?23:34
jow_laptopdidn't know23:34
wpwrakmost people stick with 3.1415926..., so it's always interesting when there's a place where they use a different value23:34
kristianpaulwpwrak: oh :)23:35
kristianpauli'll try remenber that six next time 23:37
wpwrakthe leading 1 may be more bothersome when it comes to making practical use of your calculations :)23:38
urandom__meh that rasbery pi looks so good, something like that as open hardware would be really cool23:51
wpwrakif you could hack the CPU that's already inside the TV you need for the R-Pi, you'd have something at least equivalently powerful and USD 25 cheaper ;-)23:58
