wpwrakyeah, i know it. the good advice there is to copy a design that works. then i'd stomp on any remaining ambitions :)05:49
nicksydneylike that :)06:02

DocScrutinizer05whitequark: indeed hmm. The bq27200 shunt is GND side12:33
DocScrutinizer05and the I2C addr is fixed, so a tad cumbersome to have more than one of them12:35
nicksydneynow this is what i call easy money to make http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-03-06/venezuela-how-you-convert-1-175000  :)14:19
rohDocScrutinizer05: what do you want to measure?15:32
rohfor current ti has some nice thingies.. ina 219 and such15:32
DocScrutinizer05roh: VDD/Vbat+ of a consumer with massive bursts of supply current15:48
DocScrutinizer05i.e the modem15:48
DocScrutinizer05bq27x00 has the shunt in the GND side of circuit, which obviously is a nogo particularly for the modem15:49
DocScrutinizer05roh: the absolute value doesn't matter mcuh, it's more about detecting a binary current/no_current state. Everything beyond is a bonus15:51
DocScrutinizer05sorry, afk15:51
rohgnd side shunt is normal for battery sensing16:07
rohdoesnt matter anyhow for ungrounded devices16:07
rohthen check out that ina sensor16:07
DocScrutinizer05BWAHAHAHA Erdogan wants to block youtube and twitter completely18:09

apeleteHi larsc, are you there ?20:16
apeletelarsc: long time no read, hope you're doing well20:49
apeletelarsc: do you know the rod landley, maintainer of linux-doc ? I need his input on this one:20:50
apeletelarsc: do you think I could send a follow up email to ask about the patch status ?20:51
larscI usually give people a month to respond21:10
larscthen resend the patch21:10
apeletea month seems reasonable, I'll wait a couple of weeks more22:04
apeletewas wondering where the linux-doc repository was, couldn't find it (not documented in the MAINTAINERS file either)22:10
