will somebody who's not on paul's bad side ask where the isos have gone?
maybe he'll post to the lists or something.
what am I supposed to fix on the cvs?
cradek: alex_joni added a new file, but interrupted it (see a pattern yet?) and after that got an error when he tried to commit it
I wish he'd stop that
cradek: so I guess see if there's a turd for the file he interrupted adding?
do you know what dir?
nothing in /cvs-locks...
he said something about adding it with a different name, and the file he added was in documents/lyx
-r--r--r-- 1 alex_joni emc 79 Apr 12 15:35 Int_EMC2_Compile.lyx,v
-r--r--r-- 1 alex_joni emc 7999 Apr 12 15:54 EMC2_Compile.lyx,v
that's some strange permissions there
root@cvs# co -p Int_EMC2_Compile.lyx,v
Int_EMC2_Compile.lyx,v --> standard output
no revisions present; generating empty revision 0.0
that sounds messed up
I deleted it
man, I like cvs, but sometimes it seems like it might suck
jepler: well someone asked
Hi alex - friday here :)
for some reason this company gives us "good friday" off
SkunkWorks: lucky you
oh, it's easter
maybe that's why..
at least for catholics
owner is pretty religous
I am a convert - I like eagle http://www.electronicsam.com/images/KandT/eagle.JPG
SkunkWorks: ugh! png! Use png!
I am on a windows box
ewww, winXP ;)
oh, and linux for that matter
SkunkWorks: what's that board for?
I see there is a linux version of eagle.
yep, the linux version works great
It is the start of the servo power stage.
using alex's favorite ir2111 half bridge driver ic
I still have to add the opto - isolators and 15v power supply for the ic's
this will be my first "milled" circuit board.
SkunkWorks: best of luck ;)
I have some servos out of a printer to play with - they have optical encoders on the back.
I would have killed for this kind of software in the early 90's - everything was so expenisive back then and sucked
you mean eagle?
or emc ;)
sorry - eagle - and emc for that matter. I rememeber my father printing out the emc info right from nist back then.
But I had even less of a clue back then
yah, same here :D
about the clue :P
jepler: cat > /dev/lp0
lp0 on fire
bash: /dev/lp0: No such device
well.. that was back in the 90's
did I miss something?
the 90's ?
when did nist start emc? I remember a huge printout explaining the control software
seemed like around that time. mid 90s?
In the early 1990s, the Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) began the Enhanced Machine Controller (EMC) program to develop a modular definition of components for machine control
SkunkWorks: we know them facts :D
well I must be confused then :)
SkunkWorks: wanna know a little secret?
now that you start to like eagle
there's a nice rendering lybrary for eagle
so you can render your boards 3D
looks like this: http://www.hackaday.com/entry/1234000617073526/
[18:53:55] <alex_joni> http://www.matwei.de/doku.php?id=en:eagle3d:eagle3d
that is pretty neat - although I don't think I would ever use it.
just thought I'd mention it ;)
thanks alex - I am a minimalist - well not really
jepler, cradek : any of you still around?
I'm falling asleep soon, don't want to leave #emc unattended though..
yeah I'm here kinda
err - hi guys
jepler: can you look over fogl's shoulder?
alex_joni: I'll see what I can do
nope - home finally
got a CVS question for jepler or cradek
(or anyone else who knows the answer)
what would I need to do to be able to back up the repository on Dreamhost?
I believe I can set up cron jobe, but I'm not sure how to get the repository with history
cradek's the one to answer that question
ok. I'll ask later
hmmm - maybe I should swap out UPses - this one is beeping incessantly, and the "change battery" light is on
that makes me nervous
[Global Notice] Hi all. We're experiencing serious problems with connectivity to our European hub. Investigating now.
[Global Notice] Hi all. We momentarily lost our connection between our European and US hubs. We're told there are reports of ssh and http connection problems, so this may have been a large backbone glitch. If you have any information, please let us know; we're looking into it.
[Global Notice] Everything seems back to normal. Thanks for your patience, and thank you for using freenode!
[Global Notice] Hi all. Looking at http://www.internetpulse.net/
(internet pulse), it does look as if there were fairly widespread problems. So far things seem to be stable. Thanks again for your patience, and for using freenode!
looks like the forgot to blow the dust out of the internet back on 4/1
