HanWhy? It's my email, unobfusticated and all. What's wrong with that?01:19
aonnothing, i guess, although the guidelines say differently01:21
Hanok01:22

jaegerhello08:09
*** aon has joined #crux08:10
AstonV12anybody can suggest a nice minimalist window manager?08:10
jaegerwhat degree of minimalism are you after?08:10
RyoSevilwm, pekwm..08:11
AstonV12let's start with very minimalist08:11
RyoSevilwm08:11
jaegerevilwm08:11
jaegerotherwise, there are plenty available: ion3, ratpoison, windowlab08:12
RyoSpekwm ._. /me <3 it08:12
AstonV12wow...I should check for all of them!08:13
aoncwm too08:13
AstonV12and...what about beryl? I mean..what kind of wm is it?08:13
jaegerit's a compositor, like compiz08:13
treachwmaker is also nice, and ofc fvwm once you get it right... which might be something of a Project (TM)... :P08:13
jaegermeant for the eye-candy crowd08:13
AstonV12you would suggest it or still quite unstable for a not very expert user like me?08:14
jaegerI would not suggest it at all unless you want to play with Xgl/AIGLX08:15
AstonV12ok...I'll not try it, already had lot of problems with aiglx08:15
treachif you're "not very expert" stick with the old mature stuff.08:16
AstonV12and what about blackbox?I mean..compared to the ones you suggested me (ewm,ion3,evilwm,pekwm,windowlab...)08:16
AstonV12yes...better to use old mature stuff or i'll certainly get in trouble!08:17
treachwhy not give it a try?08:17
treachif it doesn't work, there are probably at least another 100 you could try.08:17
treachs /work/work out for you/08:18
AstonV12anyway....I'll have a look for all the ones you suggested and than I'll see...08:19
AstonV12thank a lot anyway!08:20

deus_exwtf, audacious is using more cpu than FF atm.weird...09:31
aonmy audacious just crashed09:31
treach"autroucius media player".09:32
deus_exaon: Mine is still ok, but eats  cpu cycles as crazy.09:32
RyoSworks fine here09:32
RyoSbtw anyone checked out the latest svn? it should have mlayer support09:33
deus_extreach: Yes, we know, you hate it :)09:33
treachNo I don't. I was just not quite happy with the current version.09:33
deus_exRyoS: It always works fine *somewhere*.09:33
treachno, Romster has no problems, that's proof that there is nothing wrong with it.09:34
deus_exSo it must be PEBKAC than...09:34
treachdeus_ex: btw, how much cpu are you talking about?09:35
deus_exs/than/then09:35
deus_ex20-26 percent, according to htop09:36
*** the-ruediger has joined #crux09:36
treachI assume you're not running it on a 486.. :P09:36
deus_exIt jumps up and  down.09:36
treachI'd say that's way too much, probably time to kill it. :-)09:37
deus_exNo, celeron2@2ghz09:37
treachit's using ~0.3% here (barton 2500)09:37
deus_exWow.with vbr mp3, it uses ~20%, but now I'm playing cbr track, it's down to 1.3.wtf?09:39

treachodd.09:45
jaegerI haven't used audacious much yet but I find it amusing my audacious install can't play anything09:46
deus_exMaybe the track is somehow b0rken.09:46
RyoSjaeger: you need the plugins09:46
jaegerRyoS: yeah, I'm building them now09:46
RyoScheck out my port (i always wanted to say that)09:46

deus_exlast fm client won't work here(looks for sound devices, and just hangs).09:52
jaegerRyoS: looks to me like audacious-plugins is missing taglib as a dep09:52
RyoSlet me check09:52
treachjaeger: I've got a port that works.. ;-)09:52
jaegerno big deal, already building RyoS'09:53

pitillotreach, wich one is yours?09:59
treachpitillo: it's not listed, but some of them has been refered to by other people here.09:59
treachmy gphoto2 port for instance.09:59
pitillotreach, ummm can you give me a link to take a look?10:00
deus_extreach: Will you join contrib?10:01
treachhttp://hem.bredband.net/treach/files/crux/misc/treach.httpup10:01
treachand NO. I won't join anything..10:01
treachI'm simply not able to keep things up to snuff as well as I'd like to.10:01
jaegerheh10:02
pitillo(only a opinion... if you had tons of stuff, is quite difficult to do that, but if you start with some of them, it can be easy to make good updates of them) more people doing little things instead of less people doing tons of things...10:04
treachpitillo: I'm not really well, for a start. and then there is the time issue, the hackishness, and the identity issues. better just leave things as they are.10:06
*** bd2 has joined #crux10:09
deus_extreach: I hope you get well soon, man.10:11
Romsteri guess if anyone wants to they can take trenches ports and do them up/maintain them and throw them in contrib.10:13

treach:P10:24
treachafk food10:24
pitillodeus_ex, have you got a link to some mix?10:25
Romstervideo cards should throttle its memory and gpu when its not being used for anything more than everyday stuff, only to use full gpu when doing full graphics.10:27
deus_expitillo: Check out http://djmixtape.net/?page=search10:29
deus_exI can recommend this:http://djmixtape.net/?page=mixinfo&mixid=204710:30
pitillodeus_ex, I tried it and advanced search too (didn´t work) to look by name.10:30
deus_expitillo: Advanced search is b0rken for some time now, try simple search, by genre.10:31
pitillodeus_ex, I thought to search by your name. :) downloading it. I will listen it this afternoon. :)10:32
deus_expitillo: I don't have any mixes of my own, I'm only a consumer :)10:34
deus_exSorry for the confusion.10:34
* deus_ex makes noise, not music.10:35
pitillodeus_ex, don´t understand it, sorry. :)10:40
* deus_ex is puzzled10:42
deus_expitillo: Just listen to the mix, ok ? :)10:43
deus_exEnjoy.10:43
pitillodeus_ex, sure. This afternoon I will listen it. :)10:43
*** steini has joined #crux10:45
deus_expitillo: Just play it and pump up the volume.Tribal techno is *good*.10:47
Romstercool i should download soem mixes to listen to :P10:48
Romsterdeus_ex, i just ignore things that don't make scence, the sentance that is :)10:49
Romsteri got about 40GB of music here to listen too aswell and radio streams10:49
pitillodeus_ex, sure you listen jdolan mixes... very good imo.10:49
jaegeraudacious' 'jump to file' function doesn't work well10:49
treachany special provocation needed?10:51
deus_exrapidshare.de/***/How.To.Seducing.Women.With.Your.Home.Computer.rar10:51
RyoSjaeger: http://rafb.net/paste/results/JQi8th48.html <- would this be an usable startup file for a port?10:51
deus_exI've got to d/l this :)10:51
RyoSsorry for highlight, it was actually meant for all10:52
treachmmh. my main complaint about audacious is that it really doesn't work well with fvwm. :-/10:52
deus_expitillo: Thanks for reminding me to check out jdolan's mixes.10:52
jaegerRyoS: what does it accomplish? not familiar with audtty10:53
RyoSaudtty is an ncurses client for audacious10:54
RyoSstarting it headless will just start the core without gui10:54
deus_exjaeger: What's the problem?.10:54
RyoSaudtty then connects to the core and you have a nice ncurses gui :)10:54
jaegerdeus_ex: the problem with what?10:54
jaegerRyoS: ah. well, seems ok to me10:54
deus_exaudacious 'jump to file'10:55
RyoSgreat :)10:55
jaegerdoh... still some texture problems with the 96xx nvidia drivers10:55
treachwelcome to the joys of using an "alternative" os. :/10:56
jaegerdeus_ex: oh, the fact that it doesn't search properly10:56
deus_exdefine 'properly'.10:58
deus_exiirc, it works same as in winamp, so if winamp is b0rken, so is this ;)10:59
jaegeran example: I have a 2-disc set of Infected Mushroom - Converting Vegetarians ripped - the album name exists in all the id3 tags as well as the filenames but if I try to jump and type in "converting" (case doesn't seem to matter) the search window is completely blank11:00
jaegerah, no, I'm wrong, it *is* case-sensitive11:00
jaegerwhich winamp isn't11:01
*** ningo has quit IRC11:01
Romsterjaeger, damn11:02
jaegermight have to feedback that, heh11:03
*** ningo has joined #crux11:03
jaegeror just send in a patch, I guess11:03
deus_exjaeger: When I search for either 'dj' or 'DJ', it finds same tracks.11:04
deus_exSame for 'incubus' vs 'Incubus'.11:06
jaegerawesome, taking a screenshot killed audacaious :)11:06
aonhehe11:06
aoncmus seems to be still running :)11:06
deus_exbtw, 'Converting Vegetarians' <----great title11:07
aonthe album isn't really bad either iirc11:07
deus_exaon: that's psy trance?11:08
aonsomething like that, yeah11:08
jaegerdeus_ex: http://jaeger.morpheus.net/linux/images/audacious-cs1.png11:09
jaegerhttp://jaeger.morpheus.net/linux/images/audacious-cs2.png11:09
treachjaeger: Something seems to be amiss with your setup..11:09
treachmaybe it doesn't like gnomes. ;-)11:09
deus_exaon: I prefer trance/techno/d'n'b myself, but I'll check it out.11:09
jaegeror XFS11:09
aondon't worry, at least one person i know claims that the newer albums aren't psytrance at all :)11:10
deus_exjaeger: weird11:11
jaegerwhat filesystem do you use?11:11
treachjfs..11:12
deus_exext311:12
jaegerI'll test it on ext311:12
deus_exaon: Ok :)11:12
jaegernope, same results for me on ext311:14
Romsterbtw what was that ultimate fs we wouldn't see on linux again, was gonna show a friend i can't fidn the wikipedia page.11:15
jaegerzfs?11:15
RyoSanyone wants to try my audtty port? :)11:16
deus_exRomster: reiserfs4?11:17
aoni think we already have seen it on linux11:17
deus_exBut we will not see it again, since main dev is in jail?11:18
aon...11:18
Romsterdeus_ex, no it was like sun microsystems or something striped tree like FS that never fragamented etc. that didn't have a open licence11:18
Romsterand it had features like LVM2 has11:19
Romsterdunno about that deus_ex11:19
Romsteras its opensource reiser could be taken over by anyone..11:19
jaegerhttp://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/zfs/11:19
aonand it still doesn't stop existing even if the dev is in jail11:19
deus_exaon: it never was in vanilla kernel, iirc, so it doesn't really count, imho11:19
Romsteror everyone will use the last stable version till he gets back to it11:19
Romsterjaeger, hmm that wasn't it but i did look at that one in my search.11:22
Romstersomeone mentained it here along time ago, not sure if it'l be on the archive as the log bot wasn't on then?11:22
tilmanmentioned or maintained?11:22
Romsterand i didn't log it :/11:22
tilmanare you taking bets? ;)11:23
Romstermentioned11:24
Romsterheh no11:24
Romsteri just wanna find the damn thing again to show a friend..11:24
*** mike_k has joined #crux11:28
Romsteri should of bookmarked it, soemone I think it was here said it wasn't licenced to be aviable for linux to use. but the FS had alot of features i wanted to show a friend. not unless it was in #linuxhelp i might be confusing myself.11:29
tilmanwhat are you looking for?11:30
aonsome fs that seems like zfs but isn't it and isn't available on linux11:32
Romstera filesystem that i read about it was either here or in #linuxhelp i so can't remember it had features like LVM etc, it wasn't open licensed which is a shame, i can't for the life of me find it on google or wikipedia..11:33
treachsounds pretty much like zfs to me.11:33
tilman:D11:33
tilmanyeah, it probably is11:33
Romsterhad a restricive licence that would make porting it to linux a copyright violation, but i'm trying to find the site so i can show a friend about it.11:34
treachmaybe it's just the glue that made the name and the object disconnect?11:34
Romsteri looked and its got a FUSE project in the works :/11:34
treachzfs is under CCDL11:34
Romsterdunno if that was it?11:34
*** steini has quit IRC11:34
tilman"bad licensing" is another argument for it being zfs11:34
Romsterheh11:34
tilmanDTrace would be fun to have in linux11:35
treachwell, they've got to protect whatever interesting stuff they come up with.11:35
tilmanbut because of cddl evilness, they may not include it :'(11:35
treachCan't say I blame them.11:35
Romsteri'll keep looking around when i'm bored but i'm still shure zfs wasn't it but i could be on a wild goose hunt :/11:35
treachThey really need any incentitive they can find to get peple to use solaris imo..11:35
tilmansome days ago i saw that nvidia provides binary drivers for solaris11:36
tilmanmade my jaw drop a bit11:36
treachwhy?11:36
tilmanWouldn't have expected that at all11:36
RomsterO_o11:37
treacha lot of workstations around the world runs solaris.. and nivia sells workstation class graphics cards..11:37
treach*nvidia*11:37
treachso if they want into the industrial CAD business they pretty much have to provide the drivers. :)11:38
tilmani thought industrial CAD was all windows these days11:39
treachnope..11:39
tilmanheh, i finally got this weird ass Gouranga spam, too11:40
treachnever underestimate the inertia in the industrial world. :-)11:40
tilmantrue11:41
tilmanat the company i work at, most of our customers still run windows 98...11:41
tilmanpower supplier companies11:42
treachugh.11:42
treachthat's bad. The companies I've been at usually at least uses NT4.11:42
RedShift2ugh windows 9811:44
RedShift2now that is one bad piece of software11:44
tilmanit's especially fun cause microsoft doesn't support it anymore11:44
treachNT4 isn't brilliant, but at least it doesn't crash if you give the computer an odd look.11:44
RedShift2I have some customers too that run win98, I'm really pushing to get them to upgrade11:44
tilmanthe latest .net framework crap doesn't work on nt4 either ;)11:44
RedShift2I'm not supporting win98 anymore, otherwise I'd lose all my hair11:44
treachwho cares about .NET, really?11:44
RedShift2.net is nice11:45
tilmantreach: the industry11:45
treachA bunch of hot air from what I've seen in actual use, and a few tv commercials..11:45
RedShift2I had hoped it would stop that wild growth of non-conforming windows programs11:45
RedShift2.net is nice though11:46
RedShift2I would recommend it to every windows dev11:46
tilmanit makes me want to cut myself every now and then11:46
tilmanactually quite often11:46
tilman;)11:46
treachas oposed to java, which makes you want to do.. what? ;)11:47
RedShift2didn't they opensource java?11:47
tilmanthey plan to afaik11:47
treachsupposedly they did11:47
* tilman doesn't like the term 'open source'11:47
deus_expitillo: Some more music I stumbled upon :http://rapidshare.de/users/9KB2J11:48
Romsteryeah i thoguht anything serious was windows, other than servers being linux.11:48

ningoall of a sudden11:49
ningoI suddenly liek javs <311:49
treachyou mean as oposed to .NET, which was nicer yesterday? ;-)11:49
tilmanno11:49
ningoI will frenzy-code in java now11:49
tilmanc# is a cheap copy of java11:50
treachtilman: I was just kidding. :-)11:50
tilmanof course i knew that!11:50
tilmanjust watned to play along11:50

*** destruct has joined #Crux11:50
treachinteresting though. Poor miguel, redundant again.. >:-)11:51
tilmanmaybe he'll switch horses now :D11:51
treachI doubt that. He's always been a sucker for MS-tech.11:51
tilmanyeah?11:52
treachafik, yes. IIRC he even applied for jobs at ms, more than once.11:52
treachI think it fell on the "green card" issue or something.11:53
treachDon't ask for sources, it's a long time since I read about it, just a vauge recollection.11:53
tilmannp, i don't care about miguel and/or gnome all that much11:54
treachneither do I, but you are free to compare the old gmc with win95 ;-)11:54
tilmanit's been 5 years since i ran gmc11:55
tilmanwas it better or worse than windows 95's explorer?11:55
treachlet's make it 6. At least! :D11:55
tilman5 years and 4 months maybe!11:55
tilman:P11:55
treachbetter/worse wasn't my point, I just meant they feel very similar, at least imo.11:56
tilmanoh11:56
treachalso, bonobo etc was heavily inspired by MS OLE iirc.11:56
tilmanyes11:57
tilmani thought about that when you mentioned 'ms tech' before11:57
treachI bet it's all out there in some mail archive I can't be bothered to find. :-)11:57
tilmangotta admit, OLE/radioactive x isn't all that bad11:57
* tilman hides11:57
treachfrom who's point of view? ;-)11:58
treachs /'//11:58
tilmanit works reasonably well11:59
tilmanbeing able to write some stuff in c++, and some boring gui stuff in visual basic *can* be pretty neat12:00
tilman;)12:00
tilmani'll shut up now before someone gets weird ideas about me12:00
treach:-)12:00
aonwtf: http://youmortals.com/suse/compiz-quinn/vids/akamaru-dock.mpeg12:03

pitilloand shade method is a bit simply, how can make diferences between 2 shaded windows?... like the r/l shade, but without info about the window is quite difficult, imo. Can be interesting to dev the side shade with the top bar, and not only make top shades in other wm.12:51
treachdon't shade multipel windows on the same viritual desk, maybe. :)12:52
thrice`doesn't that defeat the purpose of shade?  :)12:55

treachit appears to be related to cairo.13:19
tilmanblame it on the cairo13:19
treachI feel like it, but is it reasonable?13:20
tilmanfirefox builds without your modifications?13:20
treachI'm just about to try again with the cairo stuff commented. but it did build in the past, *with* the cairo stuff..13:21
treachit feels like cairo changed, except that it's refering to fairly basic x stuff, if I get things right.13:21
tilmanmaybe it only links to `pkg-config --libs cairo`13:23
tilmanit should probably link to `pkg-config --libs cairo cairo-xlib`13:23
tilmanthat's just a wild guess though13:24
treachhmm. apparently someone has enabled -fvisibility=hidden in the firefox build..13:24
tilmanmaybe it's automatically done on gcc413:24
tilmanwould make sense!13:24
tilman(if the code is prepared for it)13:24
treachthat's a pretty big if though. :P13:24

treachtilman: yeah, that's one of the good things about it. there are a few annoyances as well, so I guess it evens out.13:33
Romstertreach, then your not missing libs unless it now needs an aditional lib for a extra option?13:35
Romsterfx2 i was told was the geek name for firefox, as ff is for final fantasy.13:36
RomsterRyoS, yes afaik13:36
Romstertreach, what extra configure options btw?13:38
Romstercare to paste them so i can mess around myself13:38

treachit's for *thinnet* afaik.16:08
Romsteroh ok no less than 1 meter then :/16:09
aoni think there can be problems with some equipment because the Rx voltage is too high16:10
deus_exjaeger: would it be possible to put openal svn snapshot tarball somewhere on, I don't know, crux.nu, and use that to build the port?16:10
jaegerI suppose it would, having problems with the svn?16:10
Romsterwell what i got was out of the siliconchip electronics magazine i get so if i'm wrong thats wrong too, ont he max distance, hteres no miniumn afaik, i guess 1Meter is the shortist?16:10
deus_exYes, it takes a long time atm ;(16:11
Romsterover 1 meter of cable the loss would be negeltable16:11
treachmeh, there are all kinds of rules wrt repeaters and segments and what not, which I should know..16:11
treachbut I don't. :-(16:11
aonif you just mess in cabinets it doesn't matter that much16:12
aonuse whatever is available :)16:12
aonif that doesn't work, switch16:12
Romsteri only learn stuff that i have to sue alot :)16:12
treachlol16:13
Romsteraon, do it the right way(tm) the first time and save having to redo it later if its not right :)16:13
aonby not following standards you secure your own employment :)16:13
treachaon: anyway, it bugs me that I don't remember, but it's related to what I said about not being well earlier this evening. :-(16:13
aon:/16:13
* Romster shakes my head16:13
aoni've never "officially" heard of that16:14
aonhm, i think i have some book on the subject16:14
aon->16:14
Romsterif i didn't follow standareds with electronics i could create some very dangerious siturations :/16:14
Romsterin the lest case it won't work right16:14
Romsterno safety issues with lan cable but in electronics in general.16:14
Romsterthats why there are standereds16:15
aonyeah, but we aren't discussing electronics in general, i think :)16:15
Romsterfor reliability, safety, and compatability16:15
treachsame with networks, but just the same as you sometimes find someone has replaced a fuse with a nail, sometimes you finde flagrant breach of the standards in this field as well.16:15
aonyeah..16:15
Romsterreliabality fals on lan cable standareds16:16
Romsterfalls*16:16
treachshouldn't happen, but it does, because of neclect, incompetens or just plain "it's gotta work - yesterday, and screw all else".16:16
Romsterwell using a nail is jsut asking for trouble and possability of a fire16:16
treachbut it works.16:17
treachif all goes well.16:17
Romsterthose types shouldn't be allowed near anything then :)16:17
treachsame applies to a number of things in networking.16:17
Romsterthats the keyword 'if all goes well'16:17
treachyeah.16:17
*** vico has joined #crux16:17
treachthat's why there *is* a standard.16:17
deus_exSo many to choose from...16:18
treachif it doesn't go as planned, you can get errors that are terribly hard to nail down. it's bad enough as it is.16:18
treachdeus_ex: it's a well known fact that in the US you have to have at least two standards, whatever the situation. ;-)16:19
aonfwiw, i didn't find anything on shortness limitations16:19
aonhehe16:19
Romsteri've seen some bad things and fireworks etc from stupid things people have done :/ or protentl shock hazards.16:19
Romstertreach, totally agree16:19
Romsteri'm off for a shower i gotta go out soon16:19
Romsteraon, neather have i16:20
treachaon: did you look for tp or thinnet?16:20
aonno16:20
aonehm, tp :)16:20
treachah.16:20
aonif by tp you mean twisted pair16:20
treachI can't remember anything wrt tp, but I'd say no less that 1/2 m16:21
treachyeah.16:21
aonhm16:22
treachactually, cutting cables is an entire sience.. I'm surprised it works as well as it does.16:22
aonof course16:23
treachcut it wrong and you get no signal, or you get massive bounces that might cause serious damage.16:23
aonreturn loss will be too small if the cable is too short16:23
aonsince there's a minimum limit for that16:23
treachit has more with the wave-form to do than the actual resistance of the cable iirc.16:24
aonsame thing with elfext16:26
treachie, cut the cable in a node, and you get no signal, and so on. (All IIRC, it's been more than 10 years since I had anything with that to do.)16:26
aonsurely far-end crosstalk at least is affected?16:28
treachwell, I'm talking in a general sense.16:28
treachhappily the effects are too low in this setting for it to cause any major accidents.16:30
aonyep, i'm still talking about the minimum length and why it would be set :)16:30
treachI remember a story my teacher back then told me about a guy who misadjusted an antenna on the radio buss he was responsible for. :P16:31
aoni'm not quite getting what you exactly mean by cutting cables16:31
treachit's related. it's the same phenomena that makes really short cables less suitable.16:33
treachat least from what I've been taught a very, very long time ago.16:34
aondo you mean the cutting that's done before a connector is attached?16:34
deus_exaon: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies-archive.cfm/362707.html16:34
treachyeah.16:34
Romstermassive bounces, your talking about reflections swr16:35
aonyeah16:35
aoni agree that it's unbelievable how often it works :)16:35
Romstersignal wave refelection16:35
aonstanding wave ratio :p16:36
Romsterand cable impedence and the length of an antenna cable for a wavelength which is 1 / (speed of light * Hz) = distance for one cycle16:36
*** jaeger has quit IRC16:37
Romsterah thats it, i was trying to recall it from my mind16:37
Romsterhaven't touched cbs etc for zonkes16:37
Romsterrefelections upset the impedence which can blow up rf power stages16:37
aonbut in ethernet it isn't about unmatched load16:37
Romsternope rf power is so low, miliwatts or less16:38
Romsterbut refelectiosn count remember the old 52ohm lan networks had matching resistors on each end :)16:39
treachRomster: right, I couldn't think of the right term.16:39
aonyeah, and it's usually caused because faulty connectors16:39
treachthat guy I mentioned before? He burned that buss to cinders. :P16:40
Romsterwithout the matched line, the reflections garble up the data, and make it hard to pick what its state is, so its preaty much corupted data.16:40
Romsterhow the?16:40
treachRomster: he misadjusted the antenna.16:40
aonyeah16:40
Romsterstarted a fire in the buss?16:40
treachhe had a pretty serious radio transmitter.16:40
treachyeah.16:41
aonand those tend to heat if your SWR is somewhere around 10 :)16:41
treachbasically he was operating a mobile radio station.16:41
treachthere was *nothing* tangible left of neither the buss nor his career. :P16:42
aonlol16:42
treachRomster: please find a blackboard somewhere, and then write "reflections" a hundred times on it.16:45
treach"The reason for minimum lenght, is to get the required number of twists."16:45
treachright.16:45
treachI had totally forgotten about that, but definitely rings a bell.16:46
treacha whole set actually.16:46
Romstermust of been some serious rf power it was using and not tuned right16:47
Romstermust of.16:47
Romsterthey should be SWR tested16:47
Romster10 is insane16:47
Romster1:1 is optium 2:1 is average but anymore is jsut bad for high power16:47
Romsterheh16:47
Romstertrained in fitting antennas?16:47
Romsteror some noob16:47
Romsteri'll give him a job working on 415 volts 3 phase :P that should fix him hehe.16:47
Romsterthen again he'll probbly survive and burn the place down knowing my luck16:47
treachalso it has to do with propagation time.16:47
treachall the reasons I learned are in that thread above.16:48
aonRomster: 2 is pretty much the maximum16:49
aontreach: yeah, that explanation seems reasonable :)16:49
treachthey are all reasonable, and true, it's just a matter of to which degree they matter.16:50
treachI guess impedance mismatch isn't such a problem with data cableing. :-)16:51
aonyeah :)16:51
Romsterlol my spelling really anoyes you, dosn't it16:51
Romsterthe cable is tightly twisted, and dosn't really matter i guess a few cm would even be enougth.16:52
Romsterprobbly todo with the power level designed for 100meters of cable, but i'm sure lan cards can adjust that for best snr ratio16:52
Romstererr signal/noise ratio16:52
Romsteryeah time delay, wave length maybe minium length is a few waveforms, i think lan cards work arond 350MHz for 100mbit not sure for gigabit lan.16:52

Romsterlimit16:54
aoni think the ones we had @ the place i worked in the summer were 3ft (yes, feet, hrrr.)16:55
treachsure it wasn't a yard? ;P16:55
aonno, i think the package said 3ft :)16:56

aonanyway, i haven't yet seen anybody making cables by hand in anywhere besides school, so perhaps the shortness problems aren't often encountered :)17:00
