[01:06:18] <jepler> the question is, who will fix mini's Z\nE\nR\nO\n\nA\nL\nL button to use the homing sequence when it's defined...
[01:07:18] <cradek> what does Z\nE\nR\nO\n\nA\nL\nL do?
[01:07:48] <jmkasunich> mini was intended to be used only with sherlines with no switches
[01:08:04] <jmkasunich> you jog to touch off, then hit zero or zeroall
[01:08:27] <jmkasunich> they are implemented as homes, but with no switches, all they do is say "ok, I'm home"
[01:08:31] <cradek> "joebutton"
[01:08:51] <jmkasunich> adding a real home sequence to a machine running mini is a mistake IMO
[01:08:58] <cradek> it appears Z\nE\nR\nO\n\nA\nL\nL does much more than homing
[01:09:09] <jmkasunich> oh?
[01:09:26] <jmkasunich> clears offsets and stuff too?
[01:10:08] <cradek> I think it even writes the var file
[01:10:19] <jmkasunich> * jmkasunich hides
[01:10:50] <jmkasunich> drat - 2.1 is doing a full build
[01:11:21] <cradek> yeah it does rewrite the var file and other things
[01:11:27] <cradek> I'm not touching it
[01:11:35] <jmkasunich> with a ten foot pole?
[01:12:11] <cradek> it's not like that - I'm just not sure I could get it right, since I don't really understand it
[01:12:29] <cradek> I guess the var file stuff does kind of scare me
[01:12:53] <cradek> * cradek shrugs
