[12:26:29] <skunkworks_> alex_joni: thanks :)
[12:26:49] <alex_joni> skunkworks_: just noticed it today
[12:28:22] <skunkworks_> dad was having withdrawls ;)
[12:28:50] <skunkworks_> withdrawals
[12:28:53] <alex_joni> oh, he's reading this too?
[12:29:04] <skunkworks_> oh yah.. Hi Dad
[12:29:13] <alex_joni> hi skunkworks_'s dad
[12:30:48] <skunkworks_> I took the little servo setup over to the shop to show him.. Hoping to get his ass in gear on mounting the dc servos on the K&T.. ;)
[12:30:48] <skunkworks_> hi dad
[12:33:13] <alex_joni> bbl
[14:44:46] <skunkworks_> cradek: http://www.cnczone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=40167
[14:44:48] <skunkworks_> that seems unreal.
[14:44:56] <skunkworks_> doesn't it?
[14:45:36] <cradek> I wont have much
[14:45:37] <cradek> sympathy for the guy reporting jitter or lost steps at 100khz when switching window screens.
[14:45:50] <cradek> ^^ i.e. it doesn't really work
[14:45:55] <cradek> * cradek shrugs
[14:46:28] <cradek> a machine that needs that many pulses is either misconfigured, or a bad match for software step generation
[14:46:34] <skunkworks_> :) he says 200k was working for him..
[14:48:03] <cradek> sometime maybe it would be fun to try a modern smp machine with rtai cpu isolation
[14:48:16] <cradek> but, I don't have one, and I also don't care exactly what the top pulse rate is
[14:48:37] <cradek> if you really need that, a dos program is probably a better option than either mach or emc2
[14:48:37] <skunkworks_> ;) I would rather use servos..
