how do the new flags get conveyed to the RT code?
(looking at the commit message, and I don't see it
maybe I'm just not looking close enough
see the change to command.c
yeah, just found that
they come in the existing emcmotCommand structure
yep, same old command, just a new field
and the axis number -1 is used to request sequential homing
that stuff works
it's the "shared switch" stuff that needs work
or needs to be tested, at any rate
and this intermittent homing error at startup that only I seem to have gotten -- alex tried to reproduce it for me but didn't
is the intermittent error something from user space?
or the state machine in RT?
I can try to reproduce - what config were you running?
I was running configs/sim/axis.ini and at the very beginning of startup I was getting the error I pasted earlier
and even for me it was intermittent .. seemed to happen more if I waited a few minutes and had a cold cache but maybe that was my imagination

SWPadnos: about automatically updating the emc2 documentation online... I envision rebuilding the docs from a cron job on one of my machines, and putting it on the linuxcnc.org website with ssh+rsync or something like that.
it may be possible to just have a cron job on DH that does the build (similar to the compile farm method)
sure, if all the required software is available
there's also something a bit gross about getting emc2 to configure and build just the documentation on a system without realtime
err - right - your way is better
glad you liked my intro :)
I changed a few more things
seen the commit
but you made it all real clear
didn't read it yet, but I'm sure it's fine
the new version should be on linuxcnc.org/docs
did you do something about the math formulas?
on my system they looked way crappier
in lyx, I changed them to 'displaymath' when they were in a paragraph of their own
that mostly centers them but I think it makes the font a little bigger too
jepler: wanna hear something funny?
I don't know what's with the black bar at the bottom of some of them though -- in the html
just wanted to say I really like the first paragraph
thought you wrote that...
this ? No, I don't think that was me. "When we talk about CNC machines, we usually think about machines that are commanded to move to certain locations and perform various tasks. "
it seems it's just my memory which is crappy ;)
hi alex. it looks like the wiki DNS changes have propagated
there's a link to the SF logo on the page though - where can I get rid of it?
(err - in the template footer)
don't see it
no problem - I think it'll work better (until DH has issues ;) )
but I need to change the config of the wiki
I saw that the base name (or whatever it is) points to www.linuxcnc.org/wiki/
about 4-5 places
ok. I can fix those
aha - the image is gone now. it may have been a caching issue on my PC
yeah, I think cradek remove it a while sooner
let me try to change it now ;)
found a good spot for my wireless
ok. it was there around 10 minutes ago, but not now
can type with 2 hands now :D
heh - cool
no standing on your head and counting backwards needed? ;)
it seems the human body is quite a good antenna
at least on 450MHz
for microwave, I'm surprised. probably a better ground plane
wifi should be 2.45 GHz
this is some kind of cell
2.4 Mbit though ;)
you probably never heard of it :D
it's quite 'unspread'
Code Division Multiple Access - nope. never heard of it ;)
the only cell systems I know of are AMPS, NAMPS, CDMA, TDMA, and GSM, some of which are used on multiple bands depending on the region
this is CDMA ;)
I think the upload path can be wiki.linuxcnc.org/uploads - did you try it without the cncman dir spec in there?
dinero seems slow right now
SWPadnos: I think the cgi-bin needs the full path
I'm editing the config right now, so you don't need to
I'm almost done
ah - right. it's not a web address
ok. I'll exit without saving :)
I think it's done
can you check too if it works properly?
yep. one sec
it looks about right to me
it looks right to me as well
SWPadnos: thanks again for the help
and the kind hosting
no problem - happy to help
if only there were an easy way to move the mailing lists ;)
SWPadnos: actually there is.. the problem is moving the archive ;)
I thought the main concern was that the list members might need to do something (like change spam filters and the like) - it's not transparent to the users
SWPadnos: it's probably quite a PITA.. so let's leave it for a while (mailing lists have been acceptable lately ;)
I'm happy with that :)
hmm.. getting about 2kB/sec now :D
but I'm happy it works at all
yeah - it was that way for me in Poland
how was poland anyways?
the apartment we had in Krakow had wired ethernet, possibly DSL or something, but at least it worked :)
it was great. The Poles reall yknow how to party
and on the whole, are very attractive ;)
* alex_joni was in germany this week
cool. I'll be there in a couple of weeks
same here ;)
Cologne / Dusseldorf
I'll be in Siegen (about 2h drive from düsseldorf)
nice. What dates? I'll have a rail pass, so I could actually meet up with you for a bit
not sure yet, but probably around 2 weeks from now
if you go to cologne there are 2 things which you must do ;)
ok. I'll be ther efrom the 28th of this month through Oct. 2
I actually could take Oct 1 (a Sunday) off
1. climb on the dome (south? tower I think)
2. drink some kölsch
I don't like beer, btu I can substitute eating nice herring and Sauerbraten instead
kölsch is a local beer, only brewed in breweries which can see the dome directly
I finally went into the Dom last time I was there (2 years ago) - maybe it's time for me to do the climb
and of course you need to eat 'met'
kind of like a hot pocket?
yeah, something like that
no, it's kinda raw :D
but _very_ yummy
I'd just like to say that meat can't be "kinda" raw
I had a few kinds of tartare in Poland - very nice
how about just "raw"
well.. it has some spices in it
right - things like onion and julienne pickle (or it seemed that way to me)
they also put a raw egg in the middle of the meat
SWPadnos: oops.. it's supposed to be mettbrötchen ;)
thatwas a little odd, but ok
oh - now it makes sense ;)
just google it
at the wedding reception, they hada salmon and asparagus dish that tasted just like oysters - it was great
hmmm - I
[18:57:09] <alex_joni> http://www.kochen-fuer-doofe.de/images/0/0c/Dsc09539.jpg
hmmm - I'd be a little concerned about raw pork
yummy looking. onion and garlic
think raw chicken is better? :D
err - no! :)
just beef and fish
SWPadnos: nowadays each of those animals has some diseases
like mad cow, avian flu, trichinelosis, etc
don't forget tofu wasting disease
and certain parasites in fish
it's a sad thing to waste tofu
my cats would really love that mettbrötchen, but I bet they'd eat around the onions
and garlic, I suspect
* alex_joni has an urge for pickled garlic
argh. now I do, too
well, I wanted to buy cream anyway (and maybe some chocolate covered donuts)
I bought some 'mexican red' garlic at the farmers market and made pesto with it
I think it's the spiciest garlic I've ever eaten, it knocks your socks off
interesting. I'll have to see if it's available here
[19:20:00] <cradek> http://www.territorial-seed.com/stores/1/Spanish_Roja_-_Organic_P3054C244.cfm
ok I didn't have the name quite right
funny - not available for Idaho or Canada ???
you see funny state limitations all the time on online seed stores, there must be a lot of laws about that
we weren't allowed to take an orange into the boarding lounge for a flight between Hawai'i and the mainland
I read recently that the flight restrictions in late 2001 delayed the flu season by 2 weeks
you mean the lack of flights (or passengers, once they started flying again)?
I think they were talking about the stopping of the flights
that would make sense
as in "we should keep this in mind for bird flu"
there were interesting weather-related observations as well
it's interesting to note that jet trails are visible from something like 90% of the Earth's surface
