larscwpwrak: did you had jz-udc fixes for 3.10?08:31
apeletelarsc: Hi there11:00
apeletelarsc: how are you ? I've been away for a month or so, been busy with the daytime job lately11:05
apeletebut I'm trying to resume hacking on the nanonote now11:07
apeletelarsc: anything new on the jz-udc and musb drivers lately ?11:09
larscno, not really11:10
apeleteok, so the qi-kernel git repository is as up-to-date as it gets, great for resuming :)11:17
kristianpaulhey look this slx9 based board http://embeddedmicro.com/tutorials/mojo15:36
kristianpaulafaik is eagle but i got amazed cc license is copyleft15:37
lekernelI wish there were FPGAs with built-in USB for configuration etc...15:43
whitequarkI wonder why don't they do that15:44
whitequarkor built-in flash15:44
lekernelthey do built-in flash, e.g. spartan 3an15:44
whitequarkwhy don't do it everywhere?15:44
kristianpaullattice dint have build-in flash?15:44
lekernelthe spartan6 die also seems to have support for built in flash, but xilinx never used it15:44
whitequarkIP concerns?15:45
lekernelmaybe in good spartan6 tradition the flash controller does not work :)15:45
wpwrakif it doesn't work, why wouldn't they release it then ?16:27
larscsince that would be a good xilinx tradition?16:29
wpwrakat least that's what i get from lekernel's frequent remarks about this and that feature he found to be broken16:30
wpwrakappears that, while many companies have a QA department, xilinx have an \overline{QA} department16:31
larscyou mean: QA ?16:36
whitequarkwpwrak: TeX detected :D16:38
wpwraklarsc: yeah :) what you typed was rendered as Q\overline{A~} in xchat, though16:39
wpwrakwhitequark: touch\'e :)16:39
whitequarkwpwrak: and I bet you're an old-school TeX user, without any stinkin' LaTeX bloat16:40
wpwraki used plain TeX quite extensively. but i recent years i got soft and tend to indulge myself with LaTeX16:41
whitequarkwhat do you use it for?16:42
whitequarkit's somewhat hard to imagine you writing a paper16:42
wpwrakthese days, mostly letters. the paper days were the mid to late 1990ies, when i did my phd16:44
whitequarkoh, someone actually uses \documentclass[letter]16:45
wpwrakwell, and a bit in 200x as well. ah, and i use it for slides as well16:45
whitequarkbeamer! :D16:46
whitequarkwpwrak: also: I'd be interested to look at your phd16:47
wpwrakyeah, in the end it's all beamer :)16:47
wpwrakit's a bit of a mixture of things, ATM, diffserv, and then some actual research (that never made it to any real-life use): http://www.almesberger.net/cv/papers/thesis.pdf16:49
wpwrakhere you can find most of my papers: http://www.almesberger.net/cv/papers.html16:50
wpwrakalso non-PhD things. no presentations, though. they are quite scattered :)16:50
whitequarkwow, you have a lot16:51
qi-bot[commit] Paul Cercueil: Make the file selector accept all files by default (packages) http://qi-hw.com/p/gmenu2x/a0515ad19:46
