wpwrakArhuaco: heya ! how's life in brazil ?00:06
ArhuacoHey wpwrak, it's going well :-) Getting used to it this year...00:07
wpwrakFallenou: also deletion of segments could be a little smarter. i do a lot of manual routing, and the process of dismantling and reconstructing traces is a bit awkward.00:07
Fallenouyes =(00:08
wpwrakArhuaco: great ! probably having warmer weather than in bogota, too :)00:08
Arhuacowpwrak: Yup, it's summer now. I like the cold weather of Bogotá but I'm liking it here also. It's not as hot as in Santa Marta and I get to have colder days for some months.00:09
wpwrakArhuaco: and the fish population in colombian waters will be happy about your absence, too ;-)00:11
wpwrakprobably lots of sightings of flying fish now - they're celebrating :)00:11
Arhuacowpwrak: I guess so. I get a lot of fish here BTW, so somebody must have noticed the change already.00:12
wpwrakArhuaco: yeah, whenever there's some news about a mass extinction of maritime life of unprecedented magnitude, one should check your whereabouts first, before blaming pollution or climate change :)00:13
ArhuacoI finally turned on my Milkymist. Playing with the RTEMS shell. I'd like to compile and upload a binary.00:13
ArhuacoAs far as I can remember there are no binaries in Rtems, only your APP... But this shell is new to me.00:23
Arhuaco(I only explored the RTEMS API while porting some code)00:23
lekernelyup, this shell cannot load new programs00:28
ArhuacoOh thanks. I just read the useful shell is a new addition.00:29
lekernelcheck out this page: http://www.milkymist.org/wiki/index.php?title=Flickernoise_build_instructions00:31
ArhuacoThanks lekernel. I'll need to get more hardware before I have more fun with the MM. I don't have a VGA monitor now for instance.00:34
lekernelhow are dumping sites in Brazil btw?00:37
Arhuacolekernel : I have no idea...00:39
lekernelthey're worth being checked out for free VGA CRTs :)00:39
Arhuaco:-) I think I'll get a used one trough Mercadolive (similar to ebay).00:41
rohget a old 15" tft00:59
rohatleast around here they are really cheap (used) since most dont need/want them anymore due to cheap higher-res displays00:59
ArhuacoSure roh. I just remembered I can borrow a monitor at work. I'll try to do that and if it does not work I'll buy a small LCD (I prefer it used because I don't plan to use it a lot). So, I'll get a monitor and build FlickerNoise. I'll be around :-) Bye...01:05

wolfspraulbut by far it's not enough, we have to kick it alive big time.13:01
wolfspraulwe need hdl contributors, hardware hackers, creative people using it for performances, interested foss pioneers, etc.13:02
