_trineanyone fancy compiling pyrit for me00:03
*** piggz has joined #maemo00:04
thopiekarPyrit? Sounds like a module.. As i remember from the past at diablo there is a team whos job is to provide modules..00:05
_trinesvn checkout http://pyrit.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ pyrit_svn00:06
_trinehttp://code.google.com/p/pyrit/00:06

*** unixSnob has quit IRC00:09
_trinepyrit should take about 4 seconds to compile if you have the right build environment00:10
*** Shoruken has quit IRC00:13
*** Technomike has quit IRC00:14
trumeethopiekar: waiting for the binaries :)00:15
trumeethopiekar: i did try compiling myth-0.22 sometime as reported in that thread, but wasnt very successfull.00:16
trumeethopiekar: Lack of QT3 was the problem iirc, and gles support00:16
trumeethopiekar: it seems gles support is present in myth-0.2500:17
thopiekarIll take the qt3 libs from diablo sdk via apt-get source.. And switch to fremantle and compile it there..00:17
thopiekarHope it works00:17
MohammadAGit should00:18
thopiekar_trine: have you ever packaged?00:18
_trineno sorry00:18
*** smhar has joined #maemo00:23
thopiekarDamn, can' t install the diablo sdk here.. Using x64..00:23

*** tackat has quit IRC00:30
thopiekar_trine how is the package called providing module building when the source is installed?00:31
*** Shoruken has joined #maemo00:32
thopiekarGot it python-support00:33
_trinesetup.py build00:34
_trinesetup.py install00:34
thopiekarSure python-support will do it for you when installing the package..00:35
thopiekar;)00:35
_trineOnly pyrit itself will be usful00:35
_trineall the other stuff will be of no use on the n90000:35
*** tackat has joined #maemo00:35
_trineI just want pyrit so I can verify the 'goodness' of the 4Way handshake00:36
*** trbs has quit IRC00:37
_trinepyrit -r capfile.cap analyze00:37
thopiekar_trine: which is the latest python version on fremantle? 2.5?00:38
_trineI dont know much about the n900 stuff ,, I have built all this on my PC at the moment00:39
thopiekarCheck python --version via xterm00:39
*** nsuffys has quit IRC00:39
thopiekarOk 2.5 checked that00:41
*** lxp has joined #maemo00:42
_trineI used 2.7 on my ubuntu00:43
*** lxp1 has quit IRC00:44
thopiekarNever mind need to bind it against a python version because scratchbox is doing crazy things.. It would use it own python install.. Afaik00:44
thopiekar.. From diablo of course..00:44
*** admiral0 is now known as admiral0_away00:45
_trineI have built machine with some ATI GPU's in it so I can play with pyrit00:46
_trinebut the n900 is ideal for collecting the 4Way handshake00:46
_trineand it can do that in seconds00:46
_trineit does 180000 PMK's a second00:48
thopiekarBtw. Isn't it already packaged it the ubuntu repos?00:50
_trineyou mean pyrit?00:50
thopiekarYes00:50
_trineI dont know I just compiled the svn00:51
_trineand for a pc you also need calpp00:51
thopiekarIt is..00:51
_trineif its in ubuntu its likely to be old00:52
nealWhen a wireless connection is disconnected, is it possible for me to tell whether the user forced the disconnect or whether it was due to inadequate signal?  Perhaps via d-bus?00:52
thopiekarNext time you need a package from me tell me that xD got here 0.4.0.. Is that ok?00:52
_trineyes00:53

DocScrutinizerneal: good question. yes, I'd start with monitoring dbus to find out01:33
DocScrutinizerI'd think a user-forced disconnect will show up on dbus in a unique way01:33

*** Kilroo has quit IRC02:27
DocScrutinizer512MB RAM, 1GHz CPU clock max, nice02:28
GeneralAntillesAssuming that's real Cortex A8 and not any of Qualcomm's bullshit02:29
GeneralAntillesYeah, nice.02:29
DocScrutinizer(qualcom BS) indeed02:29
DocScrutinizerstill I bet on c-ts and so MEH!!02:30
GeneralAntillesWell02:30
GeneralAntillesRumor has it it'll be more exciting than just c-ts02:30
GeneralAntillesBesides02:30
DocScrutinizeralso not convinced about easy migration from maemo5 to maemo-RM680-1502:30
GeneralAntillesGiven the number of options here (exactly one) I'm willing to make some compromises.02:31
DocScrutinizerwell, maybe02:31
nox-you guys still think this `mystery device' is real?02:31
DocScrutinizersure it is real02:31
SpeedEvilReal - yes.02:31
DocScrutinizerI definitely know there are real devices out at testers02:32
SpeedEvilActually coming out and going to be purcahsable by end users - questionable.02:32
nox-yeah but it will also be sold?02:32
DocScrutinizerthat's the question :-P02:32
nox-right02:32
*** Kilroo1 has quit IRC02:32
DocScrutinizerand even more a question: will it *sell*02:32
GeneralAntillesI'm forced to assume so.02:32
GeneralAntillesGiven that Nokia has NOTHING else to offer until almost next year.02:32
*** SmilyOrg has joined #maemo02:33
GeneralAntillesBut, I'm often overly optimistic.02:33
nox-well at least windows phone isnt really selling either...02:33
Shapeshifterha... "redefining success". What a smart slogan. I guess for nokia, success has been redefined as "not being completely overtaken by everyone else"02:33
DocScrutinizerNokia has to offer own graceful death, nothing more. That's my take on Nokia for this time02:33
*** mikhas has quit IRC02:34
DocScrutinizerand honestly who's going to buy RM680? maemo fanboys? hardly.02:34
DocScrutinizermeego fanboys? who are those anyway?02:34
GeneralAntillesDepends on how they position it02:35
Shapeshifterhuh02:35
GeneralAntillesIf it's a compelling device with good appeal02:35
* DocScrutinizer slaps himself and shuts up02:35
GeneralAntillesLots of people will buy it.02:35
ShapeshifterI will buy it if it's significantly better than the n90002:35
*** SmilybOrg has quit IRC02:35
DocScrutinizerShapeshifter: there is a LOT of hw 'better than N900' out there. Why exactly would you buy RM680?02:36
* nox- wonders if the best we'll get wont just end up as no-need-to-jailbreak android phones...02:36
GeneralAntillesNokia folks were pretty enthusiastic about it in SF.02:36
GeneralAntillesnox-, sure seems to be trending that way.02:36
* GeneralAntilles trying to save an HTML attachment from Gmail last night on 2.2 almost made me kill myself.02:37
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: it's not just about hardware02:37
DocScrutinizerShapeshifter: exactly my point02:37
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: if it has faster IO and a more streamlined/open linux, I may consider it02:37
Shapeshiftermaemo is a bother at times02:38
Shapeshiftermaemo502:38
DocScrutinizerI'm not temped to consider yet another closed linux ecosystem not compatible to maemo502:38
GeneralAntilles /How do people use Android and like it?!/02:38
GeneralAntillesIs my question for the month02:38
nox-`dont know better'?02:38
DocScrutinizerif this rm680 thing is done right regarding OS, it would even run maemo5 *binaries*02:39
nox-heh02:39
GeneralAntillesnox-, but people like zerojay and dneary moving from Maemo to Android.02:39
GeneralAntillesI couldn't manage it.02:39
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: too many negations. what do you mean?02:39
DocScrutinizereh?02:39
*** Dragnslcr has quit IRC02:40
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: you're saying you think they will be compatible02:40
nox-GeneralAntilles, well maemo is kinda dead so might be understandable in a way...02:40
DocScrutinizerI mean I'm not interested in maemo5-meego-chimera02:40
DocScrutinizererr02:40
GeneralAntillesnox-, well, dneary was using a G1 at the time.02:40
DocScrutinizerI mean I'm not interested in maemo6-meego-chimera02:40
Shapeshifterso you don't want them to be compatible?02:40
*** Dragnslcr has joined #maemo02:40
smharwhat exactly is rm680?02:40
Shapeshiftersmhar: the new mystery nokia02:40
nox-..that might never be sold :P02:41
DocScrutinizercommonly quoted as "N9"02:41
Shapeshifterman. it's incredible, if you were able to add up all the hours people spend 'anticipating' some hazy device02:41
Shapeshiftercould be considered damage to the economy. and health02:42
DocScrutinizerprobably shipped with a "meego" that's actually a maemo-harmattan crippled to >look like< meego02:42
GeneralAntillesShapeshifter, doubtful.02:42
GeneralAntillesPretty niche right here.02:42
smharis it release yet or a date announced?02:42
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: eww, if you put it that way02:42
nox-DocScrutinizer, haha02:42
Shapeshifterbut maemo5 is already a crippled linux02:43
DocScrutinizerand you bet it will cause more pain in your A** than you can take, trying to migrate from your m5 environment to that "meego"02:43
DocScrutinizerShapeshifter: whatever maemo5 is, it's well supported by community and rather understood right now02:44
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: mh, yeah. it can do some amazing stuff. at the same time, some things are just terrible. on a basic level. like modest.02:45
DocScrutinizerand alot of that support been based on the rationale of maemo-os to come would offer an easy migration path02:45
smharI really do not understand Nokia anymore, didn't they just dumped linux in favor of windows?!02:45
Shapeshiftermaps was also terrible, at least the alternatives are starting to be useful02:45
*** rcg has quit IRC02:46
*** DrGrov has left #maemo02:46
Shapeshifterbut it's not a very smart device. It's not a smart phone. more like a crippled miniature-laptop.02:46
Shapeshifterwhich is also okay02:47
DocScrutinizerShapeshifter: ask for those maps alternatives' availability for RM680 prior to jumping into it head down02:47
DocScrutinizers/down/first/02:47
infobotDocScrutinizer meant: Shapeshifter: ask for those maps alternatives' availability for RM680 prior to jumping into it head first02:47
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: oh I'm not one of those people who buy anything right after the release etc.02:47
Shapeshifteror preorder02:47
Shapeshifterpreordering is something I cannot understand02:47
Shapeshifterwill read lots of angry reviews first.02:47
Shapeshifterit was amazing to see how many people bought an N900 and were terribly unhappy, even though its limitations were apparent.02:48
SpeedEvilsmhar: yes, they did. However, they are committed - for reasons that are unclear - to release a 'meego' device - and they have not as yet backed away from this publically.02:48
DocScrutinizerI can't see jumping RM60 a single power user of N900 incl all the necessary auxiliary stuff from maemo-extras to make your life easier and phone useful for you02:49
DocScrutinizerRM680*02:49
SpeedEvilIt depends on what the basis is.02:49
SpeedEvilErr02:49
loft306wwill it ever see the light of dayL02:49
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: well if migration isn't hard and the stock apps are better plus the device being more powerful, I don't see much of a problem02:49
SpeedEvilwhat the underlying software is.02:49
loft306?02:50
SpeedEvilloft306: We don't know.02:50
DocScrutinizerShapeshifter: I preordered N900 on the rationale it had maemo as OS02:50
SpeedEvilloft306: Those that do know can't say.02:50
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: well you're an 'enthusiast'02:50
loft306and if it dose will i have to goto EU?02:50
smharSpeedEvil, I lost my N900 and I am soon getting another one, I can not put my bets on nokia anymore, probably intel but not nokia02:50
loft306enen though it passed the FCC02:50
DocScrutinizerShapeshifter: migration will be a PITA02:51
SpeedEvilloft306: DEvices can pass FCC and not be sold.02:51
loft306i know02:51
DocScrutinizerjust my 2 cents though02:51
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: how do you know, now02:51
Shapeshifterif it's really a maemo '6'02:51
Shapeshifterposing as meego02:51
DocScrutinizerI extrapolate from what I know about meego-arm02:51
Shapeshifterwell, do you even know what package management it's going to use?02:52
DocScrutinizerI hope I'm wrong, honestly02:52
Shapeshifteris it going to be rpm?02:52
DocScrutinizernope, probably not, though I dunno02:52
Shapeshifterit seems like we know nothing, neither positive nor negative.02:52
Shapeshifterwell, apart from nokia generally screwing up.02:53
DocScrutinizerI'm more concerned about all the 'middleware' libs and stuff, like sensors, location, whatnot02:53
SpeedEvilShapeshifter: More important than RPM. Will it support PNG?02:53
ShapeshifterSpeedEvil: >.>02:53
smharShapeshifter, I know something for sure by now, never trust Nokia on any thing they say, wait until you actually see the device02:53
ShapeshifterPNG? as in... pictures? I'm not getting the joke.02:53
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: so you fear the interfaces will be incompatible and all software using some middleware will break?02:54
SpeedEvilShapeshifter: nvm - someone at the meego conference who asked silly questions.02:54
DocScrutinizerall the hacks that fix issues for maemo5, starting at simple-backlight-applet over tweakr for user defined profiles, to dunno what. All that will not work anymore on maemo6-meego and I'm not willing to use a device that is back to the shitty UX maemo5 PR1.0 offered to me02:55
DocScrutinizerShapeshifter: exactly02:55
Shapeshiftera sane concern02:56
DocScrutinizeraaah PNG, now I got the pun02:57
GeneralAntillesShapeshifter: there was an old Chinese guy asking inane questions in all of the talks at the MeeGo conf.02:58
GeneralAntilles"What does the Q stand for?" [in QML]02:58
GeneralAntilles"Awesome!"02:58
GeneralAntilleshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/generalantilles/5758755051/in/photostream02:59
DocScrutinizerbasically I got same concerns with m6/meego-fake as with every OS update. I'm a power user that invests a lot of time to configure the user interface to his needs. I'm not willing to "simply reinstall windows to fix it"02:59
ShapeshifterGeneralAntilles: oh02:59
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: btw, backlight-applet, custom profiles, those are the kind of things I'd expect from a 'smartphone'03:00
*** kthomas_vh_ has joined #maemo03:00

GeneralAntillesApparently he's a bit of a local legend in the valley03:00
GeneralAntillesGoes to many of the tech confs.03:00
DocScrutinizerfirst thing I do after a OS upgrade: figure how to reset all the stuff so it looks like the old OS03:00
GeneralAntillesDocScrutinizer: dinosaur03:00
lolcatI don't understand03:00
ShapeshifterDocScrutinizer: you don't like change, do you03:00
DocScrutinizerfor m6/meego there's no way to do that03:00
lolcatHow can the creators of Maemo, something so perfect, also make Symbian who sucks so hard03:01
GeneralAntillesBecause Nokia is a big goddamn company.03:01
lolcatWhen is the N9 announcment?03:01
Shapeshiftermaybe they should've split up everything and become 'Nokia Holding'03:01
*** zap has quit IRC03:01
DocScrutinizerthere's (been) nokia-maemo and there's nokia-symbian. The two are unrelated except for quite some fighting behind the scenes I guess03:02

DocScrutinizermaemo would be shining today, if they'd have put as much effort in making it clean, as they've put in meego just to make it run at all03:08

SpeedEvilThat is - for an initial run of 50000 or so, and software development.03:21

lolcatDocScrutinizer: I am sure china has one03:29
DocScrutinizerludens: there's exactly one proper flash version: the rev9 shipped with maemo, which got some patches to be more like 10 rather than 903:30
ludensok thx DocScrutinizer03:31
ludensthats what i suspected03:31
DocScrutinizerthere's no update or alternative that really delivers03:31
ShapeshifterI hate how software for maemo is half-assedly patched - basically just to break compatibility03:31
Shapeshifterpulse is one example03:31
ludensand it wont run any new flash stuff03:31
Shapeshifterman. it's incredible how far behind the phone market is regarding openness03:32
Shapeshifterha03:33

ludensthanks03:36

DocScrutinizerthat's what backupmenu is for03:36
DocScrutinizerhopefully restoring things without a complete flash plus configuring adventure03:37
DocScrutinizerof course you need to install and create backup *before* you mess up things ;-)03:37

ludensi've been using Bless900 for the camera. is camera-ui2 better?04:14
Hurrian@ludens: worse quality, but it doesnt take 100% CPU for 5 seconds04:14
ludensyea thats nice04:15
DocScrutinizerI fail to see the superior quality of blesn900 shots04:16

DocScrutinizerall that fuss about portrait mode is beyond me, I can't do anything reasonably in portrait anyway, except calling - and caller-ui is portrait since beginning of times04:31
DocScrutinizerlook, if I wanted a portrait phone with an OS completely targeted on finger (/ thumb) usage, I'd probably gotten an iPhone, or palm pre04:33
DocScrutinizerI don't buy a device with a full qwerty kbd in landscape mode, to finally find HAM(!!!) rotate to portrait when clicking "details" of a package04:35

DocScrutinizerone thing I find annoying are users concerned about HAM not working in portrait mode, so they can't install new apps while biking X-P05:10

vermeh, i'll find out i guess.05:38
DocScrutinizerof course everybody able to type a shell commandline can deal with this as well by using the command ln -s on >>lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 2011-03-06 21:41 /usr/bin/camera-ui -> /usr/bin/maemo-invoker05:39

DocScrutinizerif you want to keep this option of selecting your default camera, I suggest you create a backup of -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 278852 2010-07-27 10:29 /usr/bin/camera-ui.launch  prior to installing CSSU, as that's one of the files that get irreversibly nuked and can't get re-installed once your CSSU decided on which camra you ought to use from now on :-S05:48
DocScrutinizerrestoring this file after CSSU installed and nuked it will enable you to select default camera-ui by simply switching the symlink quoted above05:49
*** pcfe has quit IRC05:50
DocScrutinizerwhich is exactly what I'd expect CSSU to do for the keep-that-file part, and the dirt-cheap-deafultcam-switcher for changing the symlink05:50

*** WetPuppy64567 is now known as onekenthomas05:52
DocScrutinizer(for those wondering: maemo-launcher is a speedup for arbitrary mameo executables. It calls xxx.launch when maemo-launcher gets called (via symlink) as xxx )05:53
DocScrutinizerso in above example the camera-ui symlink usually calls maemo-launcher which calls (the original) camera-ui.launch in turn. CSSU redirects this symlink to cssu-camera-ui or whatever, and you can bend it back to its original value any time. Just need a reboot to make system aware05:56
DocScrutinizerof course if *somebody* (GRR) decides it's wise to nuke camera-ui.launch, then you're screwed unless you have a backup05:57

DocScrutinizerI wonder if CSSU maintainers pondered there *might* be processes calling maemo-launcher directly via execve() or whatever, and just setting argv[0]="canera-ui", which will inevitably fail when original camera-ui.launch got nuked06:22
DocScrutinizerwell, it will fail anyway for canera-ui, but should launch original maemo cam with "camera-ui" ;-P06:23

HurrianW.M.O.: Sudo relies on /etc/sudoers, a configuration file that details who can run what commands. /etc/sudoers is traditionally modified by using the 'visudo' command. DO NOT DO THIS ON MAEMO. In maemo sudoers is regenerated periodically from config snippets in /etc/sudoers.d/, using visudo can cause the slow death of your system as your edit gets pushed further down /etc/sudoers.14:16

DocScrutinizeryeah, that's what you'd like to do, feed audio framework with seamless data. Alas this friggin mafw doesn't work like that14:43
DocScrutinizerbasically, in my book a mediaplayer has to do the audio streaming under close control itself, not offload to a stupid framework14:44
DocScrutinizeras soon as you got seamless, you run into next obstacle: crossfade14:44
DocScrutinizermafw is crap basically14:45
DocScrutinizerit's nice for simple tasks, but completely inappropriate for a decent mediaplayer14:45
Hurriantoo bad a lot of maemo apparently relies on it14:45
DocScrutinizerno problem, you don't HAVE TO use it14:46
DocScrutinizeryou can open a simple audio device and do all the streaming locally, instead of offloading the whole task to mafw14:47
DocScrutinizerand I bet canola etc are doing exactly that14:47

DocScrutinizerlook at http://wiki.maemo.org/User:Joerg_rw/tools, fix sudo to ask for proper root password whenever somebody tries to "root". That's a bit of security14:58
zzbottomif you can login through root, you can just bruteforce it14:58
DocScrutinizeruse proper ssh-keys to log in to user account - that's good for security14:59

*** admiral0_away is now known as admiral015:02
DocScrutinizerso if you can't get root from user without proper root password, then same applies to a remote login to account user, after somebody has found a way to steal your RSA-key to even log in to sshd on account "user"15:03
zzbottombut on the device I gain root by just typing "root" when rootsh is installed (as in my case). Yes, that is a big security flaw.. but funny enough, I can live with it as I am always carrying my phone.15:03
zzbottomThrough remote SSH, I want to disable all default logins, create my own login and be able to su from here.15:04
DocScrutinizerand if you would have bothered to actually look at what I gave URL to you...15:04
DocScrutinizeryou would have seen how to fix this issue15:04
zzbottomyep, I look at your URL, but is only fix the local issue, right?15:05
Choomthe notion that somebody would attempt a bruteforce login from the network is simply unconceivable to me unless pretty obvious passwords ar chosen15:05

*** dos11 has quit IRC20:58

SpeedEvilfish_sticks: What are you trying to do.21:02
fish_sticksthanks and its better I do it via usb right?21:02
fish_sticksSpeedEvil: trying to plot something using the accelerometer co-ordinates21:02
SpeedEvilThe accellerometer almost can't be used for integratingchanges in position, it's not possible generally.21:02
fish_sticksintegrating changes?didnt get you21:03
*** unixSnob has joined #maemo21:03
SpeedEvilWhat are you trying to do with the data you get drom the accellerometer.21:03
petterithis one I used: http://wiki.maemo.org/Accelerometers#Smoothed_C_interface and got working values21:03
SpeedEvilFor working out which direction 'down' is - it works.21:04
fish_stickssending that data via a socket21:04
SpeedEvilFor much more than that - it's complex.21:04
fish_stickspetteri: thanks21:04
fish_sticksSpeedEvil: you mean to tell me I wont be able to use it?21:04
SpeedEvilWhat are you trying to do with the data - not how are you reading it.21:05
fish_sticksI'll take that an draw say a circle using opengl21:05
SpeedEvilhow?21:05
SpeedEvilWhy?21:05
fish_sticksplanning on implementing say a squash game21:05
fish_sticksso that the bat moves as I move the N90021:06
fish_stickssomething like that21:06
Choomreading my accelerometer several times, I get these: -36 -18 -936, -18 -36 -936, -36 -36 -936, -18 -36 -936, -36 -18 -95421:06
ChoomI don't know where my phone is right now, but the values are pretty stable to me21:06
fish_sticksChoom: its not stablity that I want,but fluidity21:06
SpeedEvilIt is poor to very poor at determining position. This is because you need to integrate the already noisy accellerations, and try to work out where the normally dominant 'down vector' is.21:07
fish_stickscontinuous precise variations21:07
fish_sticksSpeedEvil: okay21:07
SpeedEvilNote also that all those readings are divisible by 1821:07
fish_sticksSpeedEvil: didnt get you21:07
SpeedEvilfish_sticks: Do you understand vectors?21:07
fish_sticksSpeedEvil: kindof21:08
SpeedEvilThe accellerometer outputs a fairly inaccurate vector, which measures the accelleration it feels, and its current direction.21:08
SpeedEvilThis is however dependant on the orientation of the phone.21:08
fish_sticksSpeedEvil: you mean to tell me it will not tell me the current position?21:09
SpeedEvilAn accellerometer can fundamentally never tell you a position.21:09
SpeedEvilIt measures accelleration.21:09
Choomit doesn't tell you a position, it tells you acceleration21:09
fish_stickshmm21:09
fish_stickswill a gyro help?21:09
SpeedEvilYou need to integrate accelleration to get to velocity, then integrate velocity to get to position.21:09
Choomyou need to infer position from the acceleration vector, and ignore the acceleration of gravity21:10
SpeedEvilAnd a gyro removes some of the error terms, but not all.21:10
fish_sticksgot it21:10
SpeedEvilA gyro makes it easier to work out where 'down' really is - and to subtract this vector from your measured accelleration.21:10
SpeedEvilBut you're still faced with the noise of the accellerometer.21:10
fish_stickshmm21:10
fish_sticksso I'll have to take the values,integrate it to get the position huh?21:11
fish_sticksbut then again,noise is a problem21:11
SpeedEvilThe granularity is 18 milligee. This is an accelleration of 9.8mm/s^2. After 10 seconds, the velocity is uncertain by 9.8cm/s. After 100 seconds - 1m/s.21:11
fish_stickshmm21:12
GAN900Jaffa, given the WeAreMeeGo revive and whatnot.21:12
DocScrutinizer9.8m/s^221:12
DocScrutinizernot mm21:12
SpeedEvilerr - no21:12
fish_sticksSpeedEvil: I know its out of scope,but is there another way to do it?21:12
SpeedEvilI screwed up comprehensively.21:12
SpeedEvilI meant 9.8mm/s, but left off the factor of 1821:12
SpeedEvilSo the above is out by a factor of 1821:13
fish_sticksk21:13
SpeedEvilfish_sticks: you can use the accellerometer basically as a 'joystick'21:13
SpeedEvilfish_sticks: this works fairly well.21:13
fish_stickshmm k21:14
SpeedEvilImagine that there is a stick poking out of the screen, always vertical.21:14
fish_sticksso just x and y?21:14
*** buntfalke has quit IRC21:15
*** chainsawbike has quit IRC21:15
SpeedEvilX,Y,Z can be mapped onto two angles of the 'stick' - if you ignore the magnitude of the accelleration.21:15

*** mikkov has quit IRC21:42
SpeedEvil'What is the increase in filesize of all of the text/* files from this website, in chronological order that you have ever downloaded gzipped, if you add the latest file'21:42
SpeedEvilFor example21:42
DocScrutinizerthat's not only about window size but also about dict21:44
SpeedEvilI know.21:44
DocScrutinizerand if the dict gets reused on new files21:44
SpeedEvilThat's what I'm trying to avoid.21:44
DocScrutinizererr, avoid?21:45
SpeedEvilreusing the 'dictionary'21:45
DocScrutinizerthe first gzip, then tar21:45
DocScrutinizerthen*21:45
SpeedEvilI want to see how to best apply compression with a dictionary comprising the whole of the last 256M or whatever files you've downloaded.21:45
DocScrutinizerotherwise gzip will use one dict for whole tar'ed set of files21:46
*** chainsawbike has joined #maemo21:47
DocScrutinizergzip always works on one file only, and uses dict for the whole file21:47
SpeedEvilI'm not sure that's true - I seem to recall the dictionary can get at least partially purged - though I've forgotten the details.21:47
DocScrutinizersure, it adapts21:48
DocScrutinizerwhich makes sense21:48
DocScrutinizerusually21:48
DocScrutinizeranyway NB gzip seems pipe safe21:49
DocScrutinizerso it can't do optimum21:49
DocScrutinizerfor ptimum you'd need a two-pass compression21:49
SpeedEvilIndeed.21:50
DocScrutinizerand that's the reason why the dict must change during compression21:50
*** nox- has joined #maemo21:50

SpeedEvilOh - right22:10

SpeedEvilOr something.22:11

DocScrutinizerwhat if your notifications doesn't make it thru to server? what if the ACK gets lost?22:12

*** tzafrir_laptop has joined #maemo22:13

DocScrutinizerin my experience the amp get built to specs of picup, not vice versa23:15
_trinewell that is irrelevant23:16
DocScrutinizerindeed, which part of your explanation isn't - for mohamnmad's problem?23:16
*** hurbu has quit IRC23:16
_trineonly that they match is relevant to a point however for power you would choose a lower impedance23:17
DocScrutinizersure, yes. no doubt23:17
ShadowJK_trine, Orly is the name of a white owl23:18
_trinemaximum power transfer occurs when the impedance is matched23:18
DocScrutinizerI don't choose anything, I have to choose a pickup that sounds nice, or even a guitar that sounds nice and comes with a pickup that *has* a certain impedance23:18
DocScrutinizer_trine: and cake is best when baked23:18
_trineI have no idea what the characteristic impedance is of a guitar pickup23:19
_trineis23:19
DocScrutinizeraah, good. Now we got something to discuss23:19
_trinebut whatever it is it would need to match the amplifier23:20

DocScrutinizerwell, isn't that what I said? Modulo you don't 'match' impedance for audio frequency, rather you make sure input impedance of amp >> source impedance23:21
_trinewe could buy head phones which were 20000 ohms23:21
_trinenow they are 4 and 8 ohms23:21
DocScrutinizerwhere >> usually means factor 10 at least23:22

DocScrutinizerfor LF you want a most neutral transmission which is more like probing than like power transmission, which means the probe (=amp) has to have an impedance high enough to not change the properties of device under test (guitar)23:24
DocScrutinizerso while pickups are typically 100kR, the amp has in imput impedance of 1MR or higher23:26
_trinenot necessarily23:26
DocScrutinizerand the voltage is really high with ~1V RMS23:27
DocScrutinizer_trine: sorrry, I start to get bored and call "Off Topic"23:27
_trinegood idea23:27

DocScrutinizerMohammadAG: anyway, you can't possibly connect an E-guitar to N90023:29
sirdancealotthe strings are supposed to be slightly magnetic23:29
sirdancealotcould n900 pick the vibrations up?23:30
DocScrutinizerno23:30
DocScrutinizerno sensor for that23:30
DocScrutinizeryou *could* try optical pickup, but the video cam is way too slow for that23:31
_trinecould you not arrange to vibrate the touch screen23:31
DocScrutinizeras is proxy sensor, and ALS23:31
DocScrutinizerhey, how's about using the best builtin sensor we got for that: the microphone ;-P23:32
DocScrutinizerreally, sounds like Friday afternoon23:33
_trinewe're only idly chatting ,,, chewing the cud23:34
DocScrutinizerwe could try to exploit FMTX and FMRX to build a doppler radar X-P23:34

DocScrutinizerMohammadAG: you at very least would need some simple transformer, or better a buffer amp powered by micbias23:53

MohammadAGDocScrutinizer, well I was actually expecting mic input to work fine, but oh well :p23:54
DocScrutinizeractually a FET amp could work fine for this usecase23:56
