cradek: history channel has a show on clocks - it is demonstating a accutron watch mechenism
(isn't that what you wanted to rewind? (the tuning fork coils?)
still have not found a practical way to do it (getting the wire is one of the hard parts)
yes - i remember that
ok - it is a show on the 60's

I guess you have to do a quick format - or it will take about 50 days..
hmm - what do I have big here to copy to it..
you're having too much fun with that
I was just thinking the same thing
It does raid 10 also.. Might have to try that.
(don't know how much space it would be.. (should research it)
well I found max's old driver box and rigged up the motor on the C axis to it. It's not strong enough to turn the table, so I wasted that time I could have used to build another real driver board
of course, the whole thing is because I'm too impatient to wait for the gecko to show up
that was the resister current limited drive?
once you go gecko you'll never go back
although it may not be so different for small motors
what are the drives you use now? microstepping choppers like xylotex?
nope, homemade L298
hmm raid 10 mirrored/striped. 4 drives = 1 drive capasity.. but wicked fast. (sucks this is a 5 drive case..) well there is a spare then..
xylotex is way too low voltage
jmkasunich: how's yours coming?
hmm I should make you guys a new video - this is pretty cool
I just got done running a bunch of errands and eating dinner - haven't really done anything on it today so far
like I say... keep an eye out for s6 or oem 650 drives on ebay... get them for less than $50
skunkworks: that would be cool
the s6 drives have there own powers supply. but they usually go for more and are older.
yes - we like videos..
oops - got to remember which list I am on.. ;)
[02:43:31] <cradek> http://timeguy.com/cradek-files/emc/max5.avi
cradek, do you want to stick that on dreamhost so we don't all suck up your bandwidth?
loading.... loading... loading....
(how big is it?)
heh -too last I guess
err - too late, that was
I'm anxious to get the C axis working...
my download *was* going fast until you guys started
of course, with half a dozen people hitting your wire at once
and upload bw lower than down...
and of course RealPlayer is too stupid to play it
max5.avi: RIFF (little-endian) data, AVI, 640 x 480, >30 fps, video:, audio: ADPCM (mono, 11025 Hz)
I think it's pretty standard...?
those peck drill cycles you are running?
* jmkasunich goes back to soldering motor wires
both RealPlayer and Divx say the video data is "FOURCC code "FMP4"
Selected video codec: [ffodivx] vfm: ffmpeg (FFmpeg MPEG-4)
(this is on Win2k, with not terribly updated video codecs, but Real couldn't find one to download either)
I think its quite fitting that doze can't play it
since normally its the other way around
I didn't do that on purpose...
I suppose I could shuffle the file over to my Dapper machine and see what happens there
oh, it happens when I try to view porn^Weducational videos as well
cradek: that is awsome. Can I put that on youtube?
was that the kins you wrote this week?
for both questions?
there is kins corrections for C too, and I think it works, but it's very hard to understand without seeing something on the C rotating
if you're going to have youtube reencode it, we should start with the original which looks much better
let me upload it for you
or can we dcc?
that is fine with me.
no I can't, phooey
I'll upload it
ummm - ok
it'll be a few minutes
if X,Y are nonzero and you turn C, the table moves in a circle (keeping the same point on the workpiece under the tooltip)
offsets must be really weird
I bet that's hard enough to understand if you actually see the work rotating, so I didn't do that kind of move in the video
I think what you did is a nice demp
only thing that would have made it better would have been to stick a drill bit in the chuck (I think thats the chuck key in there?)
yep, adjustable 'tool' length for testing
strange that I couldn't play it with anything xcept VLC
xine/gxine, totem, k<whatever) all had massive trouble rendering - I'd get like 1 frame every few seconds
(on the dual dual-core Opteron)
I only use mplayer - maybe it's special somehow
that also didn't work
in fact, that either didn't show up or disappeared right after trying to play
plays for me in mplayer, xine. not in totem.
totem is offering to install a plugin though
hmmm. I wonder if I just have borke dvideo on all my computers
I don't think I've ever seen anything play in totem. I think it's an elaborate hoax
[03:54:11] <skunkworks> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jQy-zc5P6w
I had something play in Totam that didn't play in something else, but I think that was the only case
** Message: All missing plugins are blacklisted, doing nothing
plays in totem too after installing the codecs
(x86, ubuntu gutsy)
hmmm. that could be part of the problem - I'm on x64 dapper
I could try 7.10 x64
lol that video sounds like the machine is saying "there you go"
watch how funny this is

its that girl with big gun one
semi auto shotgun she gets 3 shots off before she falls down
cradek: great video
sam makes it easy for everyone to see my videos
it's quite easy to put videos on youtube :)
where should NULL be defined usually?
./linux/stddef.h:#define NULL 0
I don't know but on my system it's in stddef.h
got a guy reporting that it fails compiling emc2:
hal/components/boss_plc.c: In function .rtapi_app_main.:
hal/components/boss_plc.c:378: error: .NULL. undeclared (first use in this function)
wonder why jeff did this: http://cvs.linuxcnc.org/lxr/source/src/emc/usr_intf/axis/extensions/togl.h#127
btw, he's compiling sim
that's not mine: http://svn.red-bean.com/pyobjc/branches/pyobjc2/PyOpenGL-2.0.2.01/src/Togl-1.5/togl.h
jepler: ok, sorry :)
In ISO C, <stddef.h> is the location for NULL
alex_joni: what linux and gcc version is this?
jepler: SuSE linux (not sure what version), gcc (version unknown) :)
that's real helpful :-P
I can see he has gtk 2.10.6
but the verbose output from configure and from make don't have version numbers in them
checking for gcc... gcc
since I don't see an explicit include of <stddef.h> then the compiler is probably within its rights to not get a definition of NULL through indirect inclusion.
wonder why we didn't get bitten by this on dapper then
yay.. finished fretting :)
DanielFalck: pic in a minute
promise not to laugh though
ok, I am thinking guitar building, but I'm probably wrong
[20:56:22] <alex_joni> http://imagebin.org/12434
[20:57:09] <alex_joni> http://imagebin.org/12435
that's very nice
were you using a jewelry saw?
or scroll saw?
fret saw, like this: http://www.sloanswoodshop.com/images/Flat_Wire_Saw_Frame.jpg
I like doing woodwork by hand too
well.. I would have done it on my cnc.. but it has too little travel
I wonder what happened to users & HAL
I remember in the beginning we had a LOT more explaining to do.. nowadays a lot of users seem to understand and use the concept quite quick
I haven't started using it yet, so I'll make you explain it a lot again : )
DanielFalck: we'll make an exception for you :)
right now, I'm sending python commands to axis
and having fun crashing the machine in sim mode
c = emc.command()
command = 'g0 go to the moon'
g0 t0 th3 m00 n
(almost valid :)
almost the same thing
hmm.. does that work for trivkins machines?
was going off in space forever
I'm running axis in 3 axis mode
yeah, you need to stop it with telep_vector(0,0,0)
ok, that did it
I have made a list of commands that can control Axis, by looking through the python code for it
and all the status commands
I've probably missed some, but I've found enough of them to be dangerous : )
good night all
