saw that when I read back - looking good
I wonder how to get all of bigjohnt's new lyx files to show up at http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/
I thought that was automagic?
or does the magic only work for updates to existing files?
they get updated automatically, but I don't think new files get there
I don't know how it works
but I've seen commits go by for files I've never seen
linux-tips or something like that is one of them
I don't have a pdf either - maybe those get included into one of the big pdfs
Linux_FAQ is included in Getting_Started and Master_Integrator
I don't see an htmlized version of that
maybe the lyx to HTML needs help processing includes?
or maybe it doesn't do includes - each section is its own page
* cradek shrugs
there's a file called mpg_examples.html (in french too), but it doesn't seem to be linked from anything else
DOC_SRCS := \
and many more, in the Submakefile
at first I thought Linux_FAQ wasn;t in the list, but it is
some day the nice homing diagram needs an update for index-only
as if there aren't currently enough cases in it
it's too confusing. we need to remove all but one case and use that exclusively
damn the variations, full speed ahead!
hmm, there is dxf source for the homing diagram, but not native easycad source
there is .eps output, but I can't recall how I created it
I figured you just had it somewhere
I probaby do, I decided to "do the right thing" and use the source from the tree if possible
inkscape can probably import dxf and output eps
but I don't know how to do that (with inkscape)
yes, I do have the .FC7 file here
ISTR I did the eps output by "printing" to a ps printer driver in doze95
there has got to be a better (and Free) way
the alternative is qcad
you'd have to learn to love it, I guess
where's the dxf in the source tree?
OOO Draw has dxf import. I'm not sure how well it works
ah, it works great once you kill explorer
Draw is the OO counterpart to Visio?
uh - maybe
it's the thing that lets you do line drawings
people at work use Visio for non-CAD type drawings - block diagrams, stuff like that
I absolutely abhor it
* skunkworks_ googles
we hates it
I didn't like Visio when I tried it
then again, there aren't really any diagramming programs that I've tried that are very good
"abhor: to regard with extreme repugnance : loathe"
what did we do before google?
we bought printed dictionaries and walked over to them
I think there were these things called books
and thesauri and encyclopedias
thesauri? now you're just showin' off
I was just laughing about printed encyclopedias the other day
they told you everything (ha) about everything (ha) that existed in 1979 or some other year far in the past
and took up shelf-feet
and were quite expensive
oh wait - I heard about encyclopedias...
just 137 easy payments of $49.99
(in 1979 dollars too)

a couple weeks ago I was at a the barking spider (a live music place/bar) which is adjacent to the campus where I went to college
I took a walk around the campus
the physical place hasn't changed much - a few new buildings, a few buildings gone
it's all the toddlers attending that get me
but it made me think about the changes in the way students live now
when I went there, the PC wasn't quite here, all our computer classes used terminals attached to a mainframe or minicomputer
ipod, internet, google in the room, laser printers ...
there were no computers (or even terminals) in the dorms
they started a program where first-year engineering students were required to buy a new computer
an AT&T 6300 :)
heh, I used to "surf" usenet on a serial terminal on campus too
either usenet wasn't around, or I didn't know about it, or there was no access to it
computing was very localised for me
you didn't know about it :)
I may have used my HP calculator more than a PC for my classes
I'm pretty sure usenet has been around since the early '70s
but quite limited
HP calculators have saved my ass on several tests
huh, I forgot about LOGOPEN, LOG, LOGCLOSE
Lerman____ is now known as Lerman
I have strange problem
today I migrate from 2.1.7 to 2.2.6
and with the same PID params machine is unusable in 2.2.6
very strong vibrations
same pid-thread frequency (286 us)
machine is 3axis servo table mill analog-servo-speed-input-driven
Is it possible ?
cvs diff -rRELEASE_2_1_7 -rRELEASE_2_2_6 pid.c shows that the only difference in PID between those versions is a typo fix in a comment
so it must be a scaling or thread time difference
I do not see any relevant changes here either: http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?UPDATING#Changes_between_2_1_x_and_2_2_x
I've checked params many times
did you have to make any changes to the hal or ini or are they an exact copy?
ini is exact copy and hal part with pid connections are the same in all my machines
when I clarify if this is emc problem I'll let you know
I hope you find it
not today, 15 min at work left :)
