CHAT TEXT LOG

hey can’t hang out with the robots anymore
6:50 Miaximus: The demon of live demons
6:50 Jac_Goudsmit: junk ftw
6:50 fightcube: as long as they work
6:50 zool: haha nice
6:50 socket11: I love the duck tape!
6:50 hjohnson_1: Ahh, if he’s not doing CNC routing, not as much torque needed.
6:50 scott-42: From Clay http://sharpmemorylcd.com/1-35-inch-memory-lcd.html
6:51 hammerhead74k: Suggestion: switch to leadscrews. 1/4-20 allthread and steel T-nuts from the hardware store work.
6:51 scott-42: The 3V only parts are just sampling now (p/n: LS013B4DN04), but the 3V/5V combo parts are available to purchase (Mouser has ‘em– p/n: LS013B4DN02)
6:51 LapsusAntepedis: Testing
6:52 usunoro: hi lapsus
6:52 LapsusAntepedis: Hi :D
6:52 Jac_Goudsmit: lol improvised show and tell
6:52 scott-42: Ask Chris to show the big bot and have it talk. :)
6:52 rsbohn: hey that’s cool
6:53 jkCBWPnet: anyone here familiar with wiz200web?
6:53 RobotGrrl: show walter!
6:53 scott-42: yes Walter, WE WWANT WALTER
6:53 RobotGrrl: WALTER
6:54 Nashblackcat: http://letsmakerobots.com/node/28262
6:54 Nashblackcat: $20 bucks ?!?!
6:54 Nashblackcat: :)
6:54 socket11: cool
6:55 hammerhead74k: I’ve got one around here… somewhere…
6:55 mjusticz: Protip: for a better chance at the contest, refresh the stream a minute or two before it begins, so you get a stream without lag
6:55 forsetifox: Awww.
6:56 socket11: Beer run!!!
6:56 zool: lol
6:56 scott-42: @socket11 I like where you head it at. Good call.
6:56 fightcube: Protip… lol
6:56 bigbodynobrain: so what did people think of my cnc?
6:56 jkCBWPnet: @hammerhead was that to me? lol
6:56 mjusticz: bigbody: pretty swell
6:56 addidis: this is what im making http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk184/xsavior38/drawbotv2proto002.jpg
6:56 usunoro: bigbody, its pretty cool
6:56 socket11: Cool cnc!
6:56 rsbohn: 6:56 mjusticz: bigbody: what are you using as your motor controller again?
6:56 lookwhatjoeysmaking: i cold do show in tell almost every day
6:56 georgegraves: recording...............................
6:57 lookwhatjoeysmaking: i make a lot of things
6:57 hammerhead74k: OK - I'm slightly confused as to who on the chat is who in the video...
6:57 mjusticz: no rule against showing multiple things at one show and tell!
6:57 LapsusAntepedis: Just a thought, would anyone else be interested in a similar sort of hangout thing, but maybe twice a week, and longer, to be recorded and put on youtube, etc
6:57 fightcube: show and tell is awexome. I love seeing new things I've never ever seen before... like those sharp LCDs with the mirror finish
6:57 RobotGrrl: LapsusAntepedis: yeah!
6:57 mjusticz: yeah, but you'd need moderators I think!
6:57 georgegraves-1: If you go to ladyada's google plus page it will show who was in the ahngout.
6:57 ransomhall-1: yah! another time we could get into more detail
6:57 bigbodynobrain: @mjusticz uh pololu steppercontrols driven by an arduino 2009 (burn't up 5 atmegas on it)
6:58 LapsusAntepedis: not as awesome because we'd likely not have ladyada or adabot, but it could still be done
6:58 ADAbot: that lcd was the coolest thing ever
6:58 ransomhall-1: suuure we've got cool projects
6:58 addidis: yeah i am getting one !
6:58 mjusticz: @adabot: seriously!
6:58 Hooloovoo: yeah it was
6:58 mjusticz: buying one soon for sure
6:58 Jac_Goudsmit: I was just thinking, I think the guy with the mirror display said it could do 20fps, I bet a laser and a display like that would make for some awesome project
6:58 hammerhead74k: Comment about leadscrews was directed at the CNC shown... comment about me having one around here was directed at the logic probe (I've got one... somewhere... but...)
6:58 mjusticz: (if possible)
6:58 ransomhall-1: $15 for the one he showed?
6:58 addidis: nice idea jack
6:58 addidis: wow
6:58 Hooloovoo: the multi color lcds you just started offering are pretty cool too
6:58 mjusticz: the stream isn't live yet, is it?
6:59 addidis: nah
6:59 ransomhall-1: nope
6:59 Hooloovoo: (and I JUST bught a red-on-black one
6:59 RHINO92-1: hello world
6:59 LapsusAntepedis: out of curiosity, has the stream not started, or is ustream just being obstinate
6:59 ADAbot: 1 min
6:59 mjusticz: there it goes!
6:59 Jac_Goudsmit: there we go
6:59 LapsusAntepedis: oh, there is it
6:59 LapsusAntepedis: :D
6:59 ransomhall-1: i got the VFD display this week for outdoor
6:59 mark8675: something is happening
6:59 ADAbot: george let us know when we're good
6:59 Hooloovoo: and here we go...
6:59 Zadster: Yay management cat
6:59 georgegraves: Good audio - good video . Already recording............................................
6:59 hammerhead74k: I haz a buisness cat!
6:59 mjusticz: ransomhall: isn't is so sick?!
6:59 Jac_Goudsmit: We got signal. Main screen view on.
6:59 richms: no, adabot should really put new pictures in the slideshow when there is no stream, they have many more cool things since that lot ;)
6:59 socket11: Local commerical cool!
6:59 scott-42: stream looks good
6:59 lookwhatjoeysmaking: the cat
6:59 mark8675: Time to learn more stuff woot woot

7:00 Joebanks: Time to not win the contest....again.
7:00 ransomhall-1: so sick? vfd? yah!
7:00 fightcube: hooray
7:00 mjusticz: I really do love the VFD. Took me a second to figure out the pinout but I got it working in no tim
7:00 mjusticz: *no time
7:00 socket11: Hello All!
7:00 ktownsend: Great show and tell
7:00 clothbot: yay, OHS!
7:00 mjusticz: as far as pinouts on it go, strobe = select
7:00 mjusticz: remember that
7:00 Miaximus: The VFD's are awesome
7:00 hammerhead74k: If you missed the S&T... you GOTTA check out the recording later...
7:00 ransomhall-1: yes! regular lcd too dim outdoors
7:01 mjusticz: S&T with the A&E aftershow!
7:01 rsbohn: yeah show-n-tell was awesome
7:01 ransomhall-1: STAE

7:02 Miaximus: lol
7:02 Hooloovoo: heh
7:02 addidis: day before mybirth day the internets were born lol
7:02 Jac_Goudsmit: That World Wide Web things is never gonna catch on
7:02 hammerhead74k: Er... no. No the Internet. The WEB!!!
7:02 physics_dude: 20 years? it's that young? wow...
7:02 fightcube: wow, net and I born at same time
7:02 Zadster: correct hammerhead!
7:02 mjusticz: addidis: happy almost birthday!
7:02 addidis: ty ty
7:02 Len17: WWW is 20 years old, Internet is a lot older.
7:02 mark8675: These innertubes go everywhere
7:02 LapsusAntepedis: Link please?
7:02 Zadster: the Internet is much much older

7:04 mjusticz: Haha I just went to a taping of family feud tonight
7:04 socket11: Who sponsers the bar?
7:04 mjusticz: pretty swell
7:04 georgegraves: http://www.openhardwaresummit.org/sponsor-2011/
7:04 JMartinez9: .
7:04 RobotGrrl: scott-42: haha afterwards chris said he was going to add in a switch so walter only listens when its pressed so it's not talking all the time XD
7:05 clothbot: http://www.openhardwaresummit.org/2011/08/04/attend-the-summit-2/
7:05 JMartinez9: that's in NY
7:05 Jac_Goudsmit: George: You should shorten that adafruit url for the sake of those who are watching the recording and have to type it into their browsers
Maz60525: what was the code
7:13 clothbot: fightcube: it's supposed to be, yes.
7:13 jkCBWPnet: reprap?
7:13 lominsky-1: WEB
7:13 fightcube: thanks clothbot
7:13 georgegraves: http://www.homestyler.com/
7:13 RobotGrrl: howdy clothbot ^^
7:13 mryan923: Loved the article
7:13 Jac_Goudsmit: I don't like flickr because they only allow you to upload a limited number of pictures per day
7:13 clothbot: hey RobotGrrl! Heading to OHS this year?
7:13 hammerhead74k: I doubt it'll ever be DWG - last I checked, they don't support using DWG as an interchange format, they want you to use DXF instead (DWG being their closed binary format).
7:14 socket11: US!
7:14 addidis: i still use photo bucket lol
7:14 Cadmandu: The refresh and fullscreen buttons don't exist for me tonight.
7:14 fightcube: $100? where?
7:14 fightcube: CorelDraw is the sheeeezy
7:14 RHINO92-1: F5 Cadmandu
7:14 mryan923: I LOVE openness
7:14 RHINO92-1: F5 refresh
7:14 JMartinez9: it's like why doesn't every website just use html5 only?
7:15 mryan923: it was great ad
7:15 JMartinez9: or why not use c for everything
7:15 RHINO92-1: Ponoko
7:15 mjusticz: For my laser I use adobe illustrator to design in mac os x, boot into bootcamp and print with coreldraw. Personally I can't stand coreldraw, but I haven't gotten used to it uet
7:15 mjusticz: *yet
7:15 AlbertStraub: Inkscape for making gears.
7:15 mryan923: its on make
7:15 RobotGrrl: clothbot: is there an artengine group heading down to ny for ohs and the maker faire?
7:15 Jac_Goudsmit: My cousin works at shapeways.com, they also let you send in 3D designs that they can make for you
7:15 addidis: Darpa is funding hackerspaces now !
7:15 hammerhead74k: PCB cad is a different target than laser cutting/water jet stuff... but yeah, I see what you mean...
7:15 yardleydobon: GE is technically a financial services company since that is a majority of their business. Isn't that sad.
7:15 ransomhall-1: gpt my ponoko order coming monday, cant wait!
7:15 socket11: Darpa loves hackers!
7:15 AngrySpinach: What did I miss?
7:15 mjusticz: ramson: what'd you order?
7:16 mryan923: Would any one like to start a hackerspace in NH?
7:16 daidny: The closest hackerspace for me is 3 hours away :/
7:16 clothbot: RobotGrrl: not specifically artengine, but a few of us are.
7:16 bigbodynobrain: nearest hackerspace in Washington DC
7:16 RobotGrrl: clothbot: nice! i'll be in contact with you about that :O
7:16 jkCBWPnet: pgh baby im 3 min away
7:16 fightcube: mjusticz - I tried to learn AI, but back then a few years ago it couldn't snap to objects and nodes and dynamic nodes... but I guess now it can... ^_^
7:16 clothbot: RobotGrrl: sounds like a plan!
7:16 jkCBWPnet: tuesday night is on makerbots reprap etc
7:16 DrenBoy: wonder if instructable s/w will be like wikis hehe
7:17 mryan923: Oh boy

7:17 AngrySpinach: ow plastic
7:17 Cadmandu: Bye.
7:17 jkCBWPnet: sandy squirrel made one of those
7:17 richms: just look how much and cheaper photoprinting has got for in home etc
7:17 physics_dude: printed tea FTW!
7:17 clothbot: microfluidics, ftw!
7:17 socket11: Super kenkic light camera! LOL love it!
7:17 richms: better and cheaper I mean

7:18 rsbohn: Some folks like iced tea.
7:18 AngrySpinach: Or a question mark
7:18 hammerhead74k: It’s only hot if the replicator is working right…
7:18 AngrySpinach: Invent?
7:18 ericwertz: there’s a sign like that a few blocks away from me in San Jose
7:18 mryan923: its cool
7:18 DrenBoy: OMFG!!!!!
7:18 DrenBoy: he finally did it!!!!!
7:18 AngrySpinach: Want

7:18 Jac_Goudsmit: nice
7:18 rsbohn: Sweet.
7:19 mark8675: Invent as spoken by William Shatner
7:19 socket11: Go to another hackerspace and make friends!
7:19 AngrySpinach: YAY EUROPE
7:19 addidis: this is neat , if only it didnt need an i device
7:19 Hooloovoo: I just downloaded that app today
7:19 RobotGrrl: it is awesome
for iPad?
7:20 mryan923: Q: Will Adafruit be @ NYC Makerfaire
7:20 georgegraves: http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2011/08/03/circuit-sidekick-for-ipad/
7:20 Jac_Goudsmit: iCantUseIt
7:20 fightcube: I have EE Toolkit on my iPhone… it’s Packed with calculators and very nice
7:20 AngrySpinach: lol
7:20 richms: I cant tell most of the purple resistors from brown half the time
7:20 physics_dude: lol @ Jac
7:20 ktownsend: electrodroid is pretty amazing for Android
7:20 lominsky-1: i’ve always thought google goggles should recognize resistors
7:20 georgegraves: http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2011/07/31/github-badges-adafruit/
7:20 Jac_Goudsmit: No Apple devices in my house
7:20 socket11: Droid has a couple good ones.
7:20 ericwertz: like the sqat logo
7:20 swantron: ditto ktownsend
7:21 macman320: Ya, electro droid is a great android app
7:21 socket11: Always give credit!
7:21 addidis: gotta switch to headphones brb
7:21 hammerhead74k: The problem with resistor color codes is that the colors vary in hue…
7:21 AngrySpinach: Electronics Assistant is great
7:21 mryan923: you will
7:22 AlbertStraub: I wonder why they never dumped the color code and just printed the numbers on? I mean SMD resistors have the numbers printed on. The color code must be from the days when you couldn’t print fast.
7:22 mryan923: git hub is messed up on my computer
7:22 AngrySpinach: Dear Mr Jobs…
7:22 macman320: lol
7:22 Miaximus: I buy from Adafruit unless you dont have it!
7:22 georgegraves: https://github.com/adafruit
7:22 hjohnson_1: “Hey, sony, where’s your github repository.. oh wait.. oh god… Please don’t sue me!”
7:22 richms: AlbertStraub there is no top on a thruhole so it could endup hard to read on a board
7:22 AngrySpinach: lol

7:22 macman320: what doesent exist?!?!!?!?
7:22 zerth: in russia, they print the # on the resistors
7:23 addidis: hehhehe
7:23 ransomhall-1: nice, git me some russian resistors!
7:23 AngrySpinach: sony smells
7:23 AngrySpinach: This is great software
7:23 socket11: Got a picture of a russian resistor?

7:27 ADAbot: and they are all on the blog
7:27 fightcube: thanks
7:27 jmcglinn: I got a BIG vfd in the mail today from ebay. Big like a cash register.
7:28 mjusticz: .
7:28 ransomhall-1: VFD = lots o current
7:28 richms: Im wanting some that are like the ones for front audio that have the isolated switch for jack detection
7:28 fightcube: that IS a nice audio jack ;-)
7:28 rsbohn: yeah, leave some room for the wires.
7:28 ransomhall-1: for uC anyways

7:29 ADAbot: the iNecklace should be out in a week or so
7:29 AngrySpinach: :-D
7:29 ADAbot: necklace version
7:29 ericwertz: less power that way
7:29 Jac_Goudsmit: It uses almost no power with the batter backwards :)
7:29 ransomhall-1: necklace = cool
7:29 Zadster: v efficient
7:29 Hooloovoo: hehe jac
7:29 Miaximus: MMmmmm
7:29 addidis: lol jack

7:30 AlbertStraub: Modulate the PWM so that when you point it at a photodiode attached to an audio amp it makes the godzilla roar!
7:30 jkCBWPnet: a short is a short?
7:30 georgegraves: 0 ohm resistors always makes my head feel funny.
7:30 fightcube: now you loose power in the switching edges
7:30 ericwertz: it's charging the battery reverse-biased
7:30 socket11: Increase of up time?
7:30 Zadster: I have some 0 ohm resistors that claim to be +/- 10% tolerance
7:31 WaltertheRobot: I think 0 ohm resistors come in rolls
7:31 AlbertStraub: George - You'll get over it. I used to not believe in picoseconds.
7:31 zerth: especially if you get a batch of 5% 0 ohm resistors. I like to sort them till they generate power.
7:31 AngrySpinach: neat physics graphs
7:31 AngrySpinach: they look textbook
7:31 hammerhead74k: And the non-linearitys of the switching mosfet...
7:31 jmcglinn: ransomhall-1: vfd current is .6 amp @ 5 volt for this one
7:31 ericwertz: In Soviet Russia, LEDs power YOU
7:31 socket11: LOL
7:31 ransomhall-1: not bad
7:31 Jac_Goudsmit: Zadster: That's rediculous. 0 ohm resistors probably have a REALLY HIGH variance
7:31 AlbertStraub: When I did consumer products, zero ohm through-hole resistors were called jumpers.
7:31 zerth: souldn't the yellow line have a steeper curve to keep the behavior of the light?
7:31 jkCBWPnet: whats 5% of 0?
7:32 AlbertStraub: 0
7:32 Hooloovoo: In Soviet Russia, Soviet Russia quotes you
7:32 Improviser: according to Vladmir Led
7:32 ericwertz: 0ohms are sold with tolerances
7:32 physics_dude: q: Shielded?
7:32 georgegraves: 2.1mm to 1.7mm DC jack adapter: http://www.adafruit.com/products/411
7:32 jkCBWPnet: so it could be THAT far off and still be good?
7:32 LapsusAntepedis: lol
7:32 Hooloovoo: sorry - that was funnier in my head
7:32 rickrcomm: will it work with a real (non-hacker) Chumbey?
7:32 mark8675: I cut my cable 10 years ago
7:32 SierraNevada1: would that plug into a Chumby one?
7:32 AlbertStraub: Must be talking about the milliohm or so of resistance.
7:32 AlbertStraub: meh
7:32 LapsusAntepedis: 0 ohm resistor = superconductor? :D
7:32 lookwhatjoeysmaking: whin will u b back in stock of the data loging shield for arduino
7:32 ericwertz: everything has resistance boys!
7:32 fightcube: and girlz
7:33 socket11: Q: Which touch screen do you like fo pushing realtime video to?
7:33 ransomhall-1: resist the machine (russian saying)
7:33 Improviser: resistance is futile!
7:33 AngrySpinach: except for superconductors
7:33 yardleydobon: but what happens when you put two 0 ohms in parallel? divide-by-zero and the universe ends.
7:33 WaltertheRobot: Not me! --I do whatever I am told --no resistance
7:33 addidis: nice adapter , would work for my drawbot :)
7:33 ericwertz: girlz know that already
7:33 fightcube: duh
7:33 fightcube: ;-)
7:33 AlbertStraub: I wonder if you can hack it by modifying the feedback resistors and raise the voltage to 7 volts.
7:33 ADAbot: socket, save that Q for the end (15 min or so!)
7:33 AngrySpinach: seven of nine, primary adjunct of unamatrix one
7:33 BennettBenson: Soviet resistors don't have any resisance
7:33 richms: Some of those non approved adapters are scary as inside
7:33 Jac_Goudsmit: focus fail
7:33 fightcube: DO NOT RECYCLE!
7:34 AlbertStraub: I remember checking the UL code on one and finding out it belonged to a washing machine.
7:34 Hooloovoo: gah - addd
7:34 AngrySpinach: you will be PROBED
7:34 mryan923: for logic
7:34 WaltertheRobot: I think (If I am to beleive what I have been told) that resistance is indeed futile
7:34 yachris: Not just probes, RAINBOW probes!
7:34 addidis: these are nice , and worth the cost
7:34 Improviser: everything is out of focus tonight
7:34 wtfwtfdef: hi
7:34 DrenBoy: colorful!
7:34 socket11: I will take one! LOL!

7:35 addidis: yeah 5 mins from me albert
7:35 ransomhall-1: Q: what kind of amperage can they take?
7:36 wtfwtfdef: u solder an isp jumpr
7:36 ericwertz: Probably five Fry's half hour from me
7:36 Jac_Goudsmit: I have 2 Fry's within an hour's driving distance, and I'm not even in the Bay area
7:36 mark8675: headers!!!!!!!!!!!!
7:36 addidis: eh theres only 2 in the us eh?
7:36 hammerhead74k: Fry's... alas, isn't as good as it used to be...
