* zenlinux finishes a new revision of the MinnowBoard Fish Picker-Upper for its local television debut tomorrow morning.03:25
zenlinuxthere's still about a 1 in 10 chance it will miss picking up the fish, for any of you who want to start a pool on whether it will actually work on live tv03:25
mranostayzenlinux: what station?03:30
zenlinuxwhatever fox is on (12?)03:31

zenlinuxI think the clip will end up online at some point later tomorrow - I'll be sure to post it if the demo goes well.03:39
zenlinuxThe segment is only about two minutes long, it's a fluff piece they're doing in between other news segments as a preview of Maker Faire PDX03:39
zenlinuxbut they'll be recording it live, so the demo is either going to sink or swim03:39

zenlinuxprpplague, what does J5 do on the BOB lure?17:38
zenlinuxactually, ditto for J2 - J517:39
koenIf I say "short circuit", will you get the reference?17:39
zenlinuxheh, yes17:39
zenlinuxah, the 80's17:40
koenthe golden decade17:41
mranostayold people17:44
aholler"short circuitco" ;)17:47
prpplaguezenlinux: J5 are the GPIOS17:48
prpplaguezenlinux: J4 is spi17:48
prpplaguezenlinux: J3 is I2C17:48
prpplaguezenlinux: J2 are uarts17:48
prpplaguezenlinux: J1 is standard USB pinout expansion17:48
zenlinuxprpplague, GPIO pin 2 on the BOB corresponds directly to GPIO pin 2 on the mainboard itself, right? In this case, GND17:49
prpplaguezenlinux: each one is labeled, along with the function17:49
prpplaguezenlinux: J5-2 is GPIO-017:49
zenlinuxprpplague, is there a GPIO-0 on the mainboard?17:50
zenlinuxthat's what I'm confused by17:50
prpplaguezenlinux: yes17:50
prpplaguezenlinux: 0 through 717:50
zenlinuxit's on pin 2 of J5 on the mainboard - of course17:50
* zenlinux slowly gains clue17:51
zenlinuxwhile I'm on the subject of my ignorance, I've never done anything with SPI before. Are there similar utilities as i2c-tools for SPI under Linux?17:52
koenno, spi is addressless17:53
koenwell, it has a a chipselect17:53
koenzenlinux: but look for 'spidev' examples17:53
zenlinuxkoen, thanks, will do. I imagine there must be BB tutorials on the topic?17:54
koenmost people hate doing the right thing (kernel driver) and use spidev17:55
*** panto <panto!~panto@> has quit IRC17:55
zenlinuxI have a 13-yo kid who wants to learn about SPI, looking for some resources to show him (and me) how it can be used, since he has a BOB lure now.17:55
*** davest <davest!Adium@nat/intel/x-jnmnabwwtoyrctld> has quit IRC17:57
koenthat should how bad I suck at coding C, but it did read the adc using spidev :)18:00
zenlinuxwell, it's a nice short example to start with - thanks18:01
koenzenlinux: poke darren for the x86 magic to get spidev loaded on the minnow spi18:03
zenlinuxwill do18:03

zenlinuxJayneil, how many copies of the book do you want printed?19:36
JayneilI would suggest atleast 20 to be on the safe side..19:36
Jayneilthanks :-)19:36
Jayneilbtw which version are u thinking of printing..?19:36
zenlinuxthe sparkfun order should be on its way to you now19:37
zenlinuxhaven't decided yet, will do so after I make some coffee :)19:37
