hi swampy :)
uh - hi
what's up? didn't see you lately
I was on vacation - went to Miami for a while and also went on a cruise
it's much colder here at home :)
I can imagine..

hmm.. did it ever happen to you that on a laptop one of the touchpad buttons doesn't work anymore?
it's happened on a mouse, so I imagine it could happen for a touchpad as well
it's quite odd.. only left click doesn't work.. right click works ok
is it a button, or a region of the touchpad?
(although as long as tapping the touchpad is turned on, that doesn't work either..)
when I swap the buttons, and I tap the touchpad, it produces a right-click
(that's quite odd..)
I left it with changed keys, now the right click works as a primary, and the secondary click doesn't at all :)
X or Windows?
installed XP + dapper live
so I guess it's a HW thing
hmmm. sounds like it
could be BIOS though - I think that's what manages the touchpad
think a BIOS reset might do anything good?
that's what I would expect too..
I'm not hopeful that it would, and if you changed much, it might be more trouble than it's worth
(I do see a message mouse initialized at the end of POST)
I didn't change anything in BIOS
in fact the whole machine can be sent to repair without much trouble.. so I'll do that (warranty still ok)
hmmm - do halscope/halmeter know if a component is removed while it's being probed?
for parameters, that could be a problem
its not a problem - (other than that the data stops changing)
the data is all in the hal shmem block, and that doesn't get unmapped until all of hal shuts down
though it could magically start changing again if the param memory space is used for another component
right - so no GPF/segfaults then
now that I have KINS_BOTH, I can mostly do my jogging in joint mode, and that gives me a reasonably well-working machine. When we get teleop fixed and joint constraints, this will work really well
cradek: i am curious, where did you originally discover the DIY roller screw?
cradek_ is now known as cradek
fenn: I don't know - I saved that link a long time ago, I don't remember how I ran across it
afaik there has been no time like the present
at the moment, there is no time like the past
too much eggnog ?
I only had one sip - it was terrible
Fam discovered mudslide this year. Much to much of it mixed in coffee.
chocolate alcholic drink
some sort of chocolately milky 25 proof...
In the old days we spoke of "coffee with a stick"
nice ray - you scared him away.
Hope he doesn't shy away from fest because he thinks we drink to much.
only coffee at Fest :)
well, that and Red Bull
and of course all the injected hard drugs
injected? did I miss that?
uh - yeah, that was only the first two days, and only after 10:00 at night
jepler: the viper visualization is like my 5axis except the table moves for one direction. I think it's called a bridge instead of a gantry. so vismach needs to "drag around" the "workpiece" in order to draw the path correctly. is there a way to do this?
a Bridgeport would need to do the same thing, I think (since the table moves)
most machines are that way, but none that we've modeled in vismach so far
cradek: yes -- in the scara, there is a table that "tips" and moves the work with it
fenns hexapod also
placing the object created by 'work = Capture()' in the right place in the tree is supposed to do it
I will pass that along, thanks

howie is still upset about the whole kitchen remodel :)
cries over here - cries over there..
