2015-11-06 18:17:20      craag  All stuff that was way over my head though
2015-11-06 18:18:26      adamgreig      haha nice
2015-11-06 18:32:26      dbrooke        I recently added some timeouts to the uploading from my car gateway in case loss of 3G connectivity was the cause of it occasionally wed                                                             ging
2015-11-06 18:32:54      dbrooke        It;s on bench test at the moment so it will be interesting to see how the server downtime affects it
2015-11-06 18:35:38      dbrooke        jonsowman: the commercial wireless current clamp sensors I have use batteries (2 x D cell) so I assume it's the usual method
2015-11-08 08:56:14      Oddstr13       is there a list over data types suggested added to the protocol?
2015-11-08 08:58:44      Oddstr13       I'd suggest adding G for Gateway, as a flagg simmilar to Z
2015-11-08 08:59:45      Oddstr13       alternatively, deprecate Z in favor for M, where 0=zombie, 1=repeating, 2=gateway
2015-11-08 09:00:08      Oddstr13       M for Mode
2015-11-08 09:05:24      Oddstr13       also, F for Frequency, allowing you to specify a list of frequencies the node is operating at (given in kHz? alternativly allow e notati                                                             on, 868.5e6)
2015-11-08 12:26:46      jonsowman      thanks dbrooke, was just wondering :)
2015-11-08 12:43:53      mfa298 I'd totally forgotten about the server downtime, bot restarted
2015-11-08 12:45:48      craag  A well-planned mode flag sounds good.
2015-11-08 12:46:35      craag  Frequency flag would also really need a mode specified to be useful without prior information
2015-11-08 12:47:01      craag  So I think that's obscure enough to just use the : field.
2015-11-08 12:49:01      mfa298 modes for a mode flag would probably make sense to have bit values, a node could be a repeater and gateway
2015-11-08 12:50:43      mfa298 maybe also identify other features (aprs, gsm) or speacialist  node type (bouy, balloon)
2015-11-08 12:51:28      mfa298 although getting that in 8 bits might be hard, it might need to be 16 bits.
2015-11-08 13:07:39      dbrooke        for readability, at the expense of message length, ASCII might be better, e.g. a combined repeater and gateway could use "Mrg"
2015-11-08 13:11:08      dbrooke        I didn't get to observe my car gateway's behaviour in the absence of the server as there were several power cuts on Friday evening so I'                                                             ll have to actually test it
2015-11-08 14:33:21      Oddstr13       craag: yea, I couldn't think of a good way to encode that tho
2015-11-08 14:34:31      Oddstr13       mfa298: wouldn't really be 8 bits tho, as it would be a ascii encoded number
2015-11-08 14:35:44      mfa298 depends how good you are converting base10 to base2 (possibly via base16)
2015-11-08 14:37:25      Oddstr13       oh, I was refering to the fact that it wouldn't be restricted to 8 bits, as it would be a string 0-9, possibly a-z
2015-11-08 14:37:44      Oddstr13       can't contain A-Z or {}
2015-11-09 11:11:58      Oddstr13       whoops, better add a pull-up to D10/NSS :P
2015-11-09 11:13:08      jonsowman      :)
2015-11-09 11:23:27      Oddstr13       22k pull-up, and avrdude stopped complaining about wrong processor, hehe
2015-11-09 11:33:56      craag  morning all
