[00:43:07] <tomp> the debounce comp has this format debounce.G G for 'group' , how is G declared?
[00:52:01] <tomp> i'm assuming G is an enum like N ( as in and2.N ), assigned in order of declaration
[00:54:11] <tomp> and that it handles F inputs ( 1st debounce group , 5th pin's input, becomes debounce.1.5.in )
[00:56:06] <steves_logging> steves_logging is now known as steve_stallings
[00:59:23] <jmkasunich> tomp: something like that - read the man page, if that isn't clear (or is missing) read the source - I usually comment the beginning of a component pretty heavily
[00:59:59] <tomp> got man & src open , thanks
[01:00:44] <tomp> making a few std units up, 1,2,4,8 input versions
[01:04:54] <jmkasunich> wow, according to SF, we're averaging 30+ downloads a day from their site
[01:29:57] <tomp> debounce comps http://imagebin.org/8117
[01:32:36] <cradek> jmkasunich: downloads of what? we don't have anything there do we?
[01:40:04] <jmkasunich> we probably have obsolete stuff there
[01:40:31] <jmkasunich> http://sourceforge.net/project/stats/?group_id=6744&ugn=emc
[01:43:20] <cradek> huh 200-300MB a day
[01:43:24] <cradek> must be the tarball??
[01:43:32] <jmkasunich> I guess
[01:43:51] <cradek> I bet there's a LOT of activity on dreamhost
[01:47:02] <steve_stallings> hey cradek or jmk, was it the Vista Lodge that you signed up for at CNC Workshop? I called and got "yea you can have a room at that rate, no we don't need credit card, no we don't give confirmations...
[01:47:25] <jmkasunich> not the vista
[01:47:36] <steve_stallings> OK which one?
[01:47:40] <jmkasunich> one moment
[01:47:59] <steve_stallings> I thought they were the extra special $195 for a week deal
[01:48:15] <jmkasunich> http://www.abvigal.com/index.html
[01:48:34] <jmkasunich> $293 for eight days
[01:49:11] <jmkasunich> (I'm arriveing saturday and leaving the following sunday
[01:49:49] <steve_stallings> So that was a rate without any special for the show?
[01:50:35] <steve_stallings> Matt and I are planning do drive up again and figured we should camp with the rest of you.
[01:50:45] <jmkasunich> right
[01:50:59] <jmkasunich> no show special (but it is a weekly rate, + 1 day at 49.95
[01:51:06] <steve_stallings> OK
[01:51:08] <jmkasunich> you gotta call for the weekly rate, it doesn't show up online
[01:55:50] <steve_stallings> Any idea what they mean by "internet access"? I need to be able to manage my server remotely at night.
[02:00:45] <cradek> I don't think any of us asked
[02:01:43] <jtr> free wireless internet to all rooms - on the aboutus page
[02:03:21] <steve_stallings> Photos look a tad nicer than the place we were last year, but the map shows it being 2 blocks to one RR and 3 blocks to the other RR. Oh well, why not...
[02:03:33] <cradek> yuck, wireless = doesn't usually work
[02:04:22] <steve_stallings> Amazingly the Econo had wireless that more or less worked.
[02:04:27] <cradek> -> remember to ask where the antenna is...
[02:04:30] <cradek> yeah the econo was fine
[02:04:38] <cradek> (very small building)
[02:05:35] <cradek> last one I was in, I asked and she said "down in the pump house" and pointed down the block at the far side of the swimming pool
[02:05:42] <cradek> (it didn't work, of course)
[02:06:13] <steve_stallings> Best I have experienced was a sad old place where they gave out adapters for power line carrier. It worked great, only I overheard a bunch of folks in the lobby bitching that they could not get the "wireless" to work.
[02:06:41] <cradek> heh
[02:09:03] <skunkworks> I don't remember where we sayed - but we had wireless access. (one per room - had to share it thru my computer so dad could surf)
[02:11:29] <skunkworks> I will have to ask the wife.. She booked it.
[02:12:28] <jtr> At Cabin Fever, I made friends with the hotel staff - they had to go into the guest room, open the ceilings and unplug the power supplies to reset them access points. I did the ceiling work so they didn't have to stand on chairs.
[02:14:50] <jtr> Worked well after we reset them all.
[03:34:43] <steve_stallings> steve_stallings is now known as steves_logging
[05:26:47] <tomp> is this correct?
[05:26:57] <tomp> stepgen has the stepping type used as the 'enum' value ( eg: "stepgen.0" means steptype 0 ).
[05:27:05] <tomp> Does stepgen0.N make sense? ( keep 'enum' and type separate).
[05:27:17] <tomp> Allowing 2 stepgens of type 0 will allow a user with 2 motors that want steptype 0, but have different maxaccel or steplen or... ( same is true for other mixes of step motors and stepgen/freqgen)
[05:28:52] <jmkasunich> no, stepping type does not appear in the pin numbers
[05:29:17] <jmkasunich> stepgen.0, stepgen.1, stepgen.2 identify which stepgenerator, not what type
[05:29:49] <jmkasunich> if you do "step_type=0,0,1,0,2"
[05:30:13] <jmkasunich> then stepgen.0, stepgen.1, and stepgen.3 are type 0, stepgen.2 is type 1, and stepgen.4 is type 2
[05:31:04] <tomp> can i find the stepgen type in the name or a pin or a parameter?
[05:32:51] <jmkasunich> no
[05:33:18] <jmkasunich> if you have type 0, then there will be pins called stepgen.0.step and stepgen.0.dir
[05:33:25] <jmkasunich> type 1 give you .up and .down
[05:33:36] <jmkasunich> type 2 gives you .phaseA and .phaseB
[05:33:40] <tomp> yes
[05:33:48] <jmkasunich> types 3 AND 4 give you .phaseA thru .phaseC
[05:41:41] <tomp> ok, thanks. I'll include the type in the name listed in the gEDA palette of stepgen/freqgen types, but the hal name will be standard ( not include type), An examination of the pins/params will agree with what you have just said. The user will choose from a list eg: stepgen-type0, stepgen-type10, ... and the device will have a hal-name of stepgen.N and appropropriate pins/params.
[05:42:19] <jmkasunich> sounds good
