hellekinlekernel you're my hero ;o)02:28
DocScrutinizer05wpwrak: 150Ws powerful? errr... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfUkDCVqw1I&feature=plcp05:09
DocScrutinizer05>> I've heard the biggest system he built was somewhere between 50 and 75 KJ per flash -- the power needed to illuminate the ground from 1000 feet in the air!<< WTF?!05:15
wolfspraulour chinese bitcoin miners turned chip makers have posted some interesting data which I haven't seen publicly like this before...05:28
wolfspraulone is the 'mt form', I guess mt = mask transfer? http://imgur.com/a/YOLez05:29
wolfsprauland their contract with tsmc, right with "tsmc confidential" on it :-) http://imgur.com/a/DnUNm05:29
wolfspraulboth give a nice view into a typical asic manufacturing process, at 110nm this one, 300mm wafer, etc.05:30
wolfspraulI will work my way through both documents, over time. so we are prepared for our own chips... :-)05:30
DocScrutinizer05wolfspraul: own chips? well, after whatching several of those http://www.youtube.com/user/bkraz333 I don't think anything is impossible to DIY06:34
DocScrutinizer05this guy is a friggin freak, I love it :-)06:35
DocScrutinizer05watch those videos, it's incredible06:36
wolfspraulthanks, will do!06:37
DocScrutinizer05i'm just afraid he'll suddenly vanish, when one of his experiments turns against him (e.g. dealing with Osram XBO xenon high pressure ark lamps without any explosion protection, not even gloves or leather jacket)06:38
DocScrutinizer05I know those critters, they can hit 10mm solid glas mirror in 35mm projectors to pieces when they explode06:40
DocScrutinizer05and those glass mirrors are ~20cm away from the lamp bulb06:40
DocScrutinizer05stomping into a puddle of liquid oxigen surrounded by molten burning styrene is also not exactly a good idea06:41
DocScrutinizer05well, as long as he's not mixing his liquid oxygene with e.g. alcohol, I guess he might survive a few more years06:45
DocScrutinizer05then he'll probably follow the fate of Mr Roentgen and Ms Curie06:49
lekernelDocScrutinizer05: you're going to see him live at ehsm? :)09:13
DocScrutinizer05I don't think so, though I'd like to14:01
DocScrutinizer05i n theory I'm busy at my job. I hope to get a few days off during xmess->newyear, but that's not negotiated yet14:03
whitequarkjust noticed that irclog.whitequark.org is around for more than a year23:40
wolfspraulhappy birthday! :-)23:41
whitequarkthe actual birthday was more like a bit earlier than 16 nov 201123:43
wpwrakit should get pimped from time to time :)23:44
whitequark2.3M entries23:44
whitequarkwell, there isn't much room for improvement23:45
whitequarkit works, it's fast enough23:45
whitequarkit might be better on mobile devices, but I suck with html23:45
whitequarksomeone suggested an API for pumping out data, but I'd rather just post weekly .sql.gz23:46
