interesting SMI/realtime post here: http://softwarecommunity.intel.com/isn/community/en-us/forums/thread/980755.aspx
yeah I had seen in some pentium thermal design manual that SMI must be enabled or you're violating their thermal design rules .. I forget exactly how it was worded
also of interest is that the APIC has to be enabled on the chipset, even if the processor is in PIC mode
can't believe you're traveling when there's teleop work to be done
where are your priorities?
major mego today
my eyes glaze over
not more 6-sigma training?
related to that
another half day of that stuff, then more reasonable stuff for a couple of days
ah. so you should be able to stay awake oncw Wednesday rolls around :)
today I got up early, so not much energy tonight
indeed. where did you have to fly to this morning?
ahhhh. the smell of - err, what's that smell?
(thats what we had for dinner)
EMC: 03jepler 07v2_2_branch * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/stepconf/stepconf.py: fix SF#1906640
EMC: 03jepler 07v2_2_branch * 10emc2/debian/changelog: fix SF#1906640
oh. that's much better than beer brewing refuse
EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/stepconf/stepconf.py: fix SF#1906640 (different fix than on branch)
if stepconf has homes for 2 of 3 axes (e.g., X and Y but not Z) should it write a config file that has "home all" (move Z to home position then press that button; X and Y axes then move to home) or should it have "home" and no "home all"?
what about a machine with zero home switches?
I am leaning towards not having a homing sequence when any axis doesn't have a home switch
does it make sense to just leave out any axes that have no switches?
no -- if "home all" only homes X and Y then there's no obvious (GUI) way to home Z (you can do it by hitting a key, though)
and "home all" is the only thing that uses HOMING_SEQUENCE?
yeah that's pretty much it
presumably you're trying to make it less likely that homing will break tools, by retracting Z first, then moving X+Y
yeah that's the default (only) home sequence in stepconf
EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/stepconf/stepconf.py: fix SF#1906641: if not all axes have home switches, then do not write a HOME_SEQUENCE for any axis
that looks like the sane thing to do (that last commit comment)
you could also present checkboxes for any axes to include for home_all, and gray out those that have no switches defined (and maybe default to none checked if any axis has no home switch)
that would at least let the user know that not all axes will home with home_all
EMC: 03jepler 07v2_2_branch * 10emc2/debian/changelog: fix SF#1906641: don't use HOME_SEQUENCE without a full set of home switches
EMC: 03jepler 07v2_2_branch * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/stepconf/stepconf.py: fix SF#1906641: don't use HOME_SEQUENCE without a full set of home switches
EMC: 03jepler 07v2_2_branch * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/stepconf/stepconf.py: get rid of debugging messages
feels nice to have solved two bugs in a nice
and BigJohnT's bug reports were quite good
why am I looking at Intel system programming manuals when I should be writing a paper and presentation?
am I stupid, or just very very good at procrastination?
feel free to not answer, or to provide a third (or fourth ...) alternative
nah, I'm too busy playing flash games
jepler: you sure nailed those fast
cradek: they weren't subtle, unlike some of the bugs we've faced lately
me too, goodnight
it's so nice to sometimes have a clear and understandable bug report, bug, and bugfix

someone trying to get in?
but it's a particularly dumb id to try
must be a windows guy ;)
sure, but also it's spelled wrong
saw that. :)
any progress on the K&T?
No - in cozumel for a week. Sucks being back
Dad is taking it easy - doing a little machining for the overhead crane he is setting up
(he can't lift anything yet)
I still have to finish up the kitchen at home.
I seem to keep busy :)
don't we all
