nicksydneywpwrak: life is for mere mortal morph is for non-mortal  :)00:26
nicksydney2 things i've obsessed at the moment...USB and Display...don't know why :)00:26
wpwrakwell, both are worthwhile enemies :)00:27
nicksydneyeverytime I see them in front of me I feel like they are challenging me ... "IF you can break and understand me I'm all yours" kind of look00:27
nicksydneylack of social interaction makes me feel electronics stuff now have 'look' :) haha00:28
nicksydneylucky i'm not in the market for women otherwise won't be able to get any :)00:28
wpwraknicksydney: sexual selection doesn't work that way anyway :)00:58
wpwrakheh. weirdest idea ever: put a power on button on a usb hub :)01:33
wpwrakthought it was broken, like the two hubs before that mysteriously passed away. but it's fine. just had to realize i actually had to turn it on :)01:34
wpwrakwhich of course proved that the fatal diagnosis made for the others was actually correct ...01:35
wpwrakfunny. the company that made my hub says about itself "Founded by a group of spirited Googlers," interesting :)01:37
wpwrakwhee ! scope saved a good BMP on a new USB stick. either opening and un-dusting it or the new stick changed its mind.04:36
wpwraklet's see how it likes the new USB hub then ...04:37
wpwraknaw, that is still broken :-(04:38
nicksydneyin the perfect world all usb, sdcard and flash work flawlessly but in reality due to imperfection in the world it doesn't :()06:11
wpwrakwell, in the case of usb, those imperfections are by design. give credit where credit is due :)08:27
larscby committee08:40
larschm, that must be the word with the highst double letter density in the english language08:41
wpwrakgrep of /usr/share/dict/words says it's narrowly beaten by "keenness"08:49
wpwrakand shares the 2nd place with Tennessee, addressee, and greenness08:50
wpwrakegrep '.*(.)\1.*(.)\2.*(.)\3.*' /usr/share/dict/words | egrep '^.{6,9}$'08:50
wpwrakand there is no word with four (or more) double letters08:51
larscoh, I overlooked the o in committee09:04
larscmeans it has the same density as bee09:04
wpwrakor coolly and woolly09:06
wpwrakwell, there are more six letter ones09:07
wpwrakcoffee, of course09:07
Action: wpwrak shouldn't regexp before some caffeine in take09:07
whitequarkrussian has an amazing word "4;8==>H555"09:09
whitequarkthree "e"s!09:09
wpwrak"words" has these to offer "KKK's" and "WWW's". kinda lame.09:19
whitequarkI also think that word is the only one in russian with a triple letter09:23
whitequarkoh, talking about doublets... Mississippi!09:24
wpwrakis "4;8==>H555" the expression you use for climbing an old radio tower and then slipping on the last step ?09:24
whitequarkno, it's an adjective describing something long-necked09:25
whitequarkbut I like the way you think09:25
kyakwhitequark: 7>>>1J548=5=85, 7<5554 :)09:29
whitequarkkyak: haha, right :)09:32
kyakmy favourite one though is :>=B@27174=CBL (9 consonants in a row)09:34
kyakmaybe there is no such word even in German :)09:34
whitequark/usr/share/words knows Hertzsprung and catchphrase with 6 consonants09:40
whitequarkgoogle also knows HIRSCHSPRUNG'S (DISEASE)09:40
whitequarkapparently german only has 8 consonants max, in Angstschweiß09:42
wpwrakand that doesn't even sound bizarre (unlike hertzsprung)09:46
eintopfi am german and I don't ever heard the word "hertzsprung"09:48
wpwrakgoogle for it and you'll know why ;-)09:48
larscwhitequark: can we find something longer by combinding the word with the lmost trailing and the word with the most leading consonants?09:56
whitequarklarsc: hm, can you combine words in english just like that?..10:03
larscin german10:08
whitequarkpretty sure you can10:10
whitequarkI don't know german well enough though10:10
whitequarkI'm fucked.11:03
viricdoes it affect you very bad?11:04
whitequarkturns out, from Jan 1st the customs require that everything be delivered to the registration address of the recipient (what if I'm renting an apartment?) and be accompanied by a ton of paperwork, including statement from the bank11:05
whitequarkwell, yes11:05
whitequarknow to see whether this actually will be enforced...11:06
viricweird, yes. it looks like it will annoy many people11:07
larscI guess the customs official will like it, more cake for them11:59
wpwrakmore vodka !13:13
DocScrutinizer05(word with the highst double letter density) indeed, I just checked the legendary Mississippi13:13
DocScrutinizer05dang, whitequarkbeats me13:17
Action: whitequark cackles13:17
wpwrakwith a chinese military shovel ;-)13:17
kristianpaulwpwrak: Morning15:52
kristianpaulwpwrak: What if the push buttons is locate a side the anelok, not on top?15:53
wpwrakyou mean the wheel ?16:09
kristianpaulwheel front facing you, you could put a button on top of it :p16:15
wpwrakno fancy mechanical design, please :)16:16
wpwraki could put the wheel on the side but it would not be very convenient.16:17
wpwraki have such wheels and they require a very right case design to be accessible at all16:17
wpwrakthis is the one i have: http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/EVQ-WKA001/P13381STR-ND/27535916:33
wpwrakoh, and digi-key gave their site a facelift :)16:33
larscI just wanted to say that this was long overdue, but after looking at it I'm not sure if the new layout is even an improvement.16:34
wpwrakwell, it's a little easier to see what's in the same record now16:36
wpwrakwould be nice if they had done semantical groupings, though. e.g., same part (if together) = same color16:36
qi-bot[commit] Paul Cercueil: InputManager: Handle joystick hat events (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/gmenu2x/c8cf37719:32
qi-bot[commit] Paul Cercueil: Allow the skin to change the font and font size (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/gmenu2x/af2585319:32
wpwrak45.1 x 21.6 mm :-) http://downloads.qi-hardware.com/people/werner/anelok/tmp/ybox-draft-20140115.png20:07
wpwrak(down from yesterday's 59 x 19.2)20:07
kristianpaulnot bad20:16
qi-bot[commit] Paul Cercueil: Handle the skin: prefix on the font path (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/gmenu2x/67ac54e21:07
rohwpwrak: neat and packed.. lots of connectors on small space21:46
rohwhat chips are the 2 32pin ones?21:46
wpwrakone is a kl25, the other is a ti cc2543 (btle-capable rf soc)22:08
wpwrakupdate: http://downloads.qi-hardware.com/people/werner/anelok/tmp/ybox-draft-20140115b.png22:09
nicksydney"http://downloads.qi-hardware.com/people/werner/anelok/tmp/ybox-draft-20140115b.png" ---> YUMMY !22:46
nicksydneylove thee green 22:46
nicksydneyneed to refresh my repo :)22:48
nicksydneywpwrak: buying all the different components from digikey will cost how much ?23:00
nicksydneywpwrak: for anelok i meant23:01
wpwrakthat depends greatly on how many parts you buy23:19
wpwrakbtw, you now also need the anelok/ybox repo, not just anelok/anelok. anelok/ybox is at the same level in the local directory hierarchy as anelok/anelok23:42
wpwrake.g., you should have whatever/kicad-libs, whatever/anelok, whatever/ybox, and so on23:43
