[00:06:44] <CIA-1> EMC: 03bigjohnt 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/gcode/main.lyx: splain how g92 works with m2/30 and bootup
[00:06:48] <BigJohnT> * BigJohnT waddles off to check the armadillo on the half shell on the grill
[00:07:26] <BigJohnT> ttul cradek
[00:07:35] <cradek> cool, thanks
[00:36:54] <SWPadnos> this is one place where an "offsets" screen like Greg showed us would be nice
[00:37:17] <SWPadnos> if it allowed editing / resetting, so much the better :)
[00:57:07] <jepler> oh goodness, cradek changed m2's effect on g92 offsets?
[01:15:35] <cradek> yeah - it was stupid
[01:15:57] <cradek> (I'm glad I'm a man, and so is Lola)
[01:24:14] <jmkasunich> lola eh?
[01:24:50] <cradek> I wondered if anyone would get the reference
[01:25:54] <jmkasunich> I know what its from, but no idea what (if any) connection to the G92 change
[01:26:13] <SWPadnos> you gotta have balls to change G92 for no reason
[01:26:21] <SWPadnos> (except that it's sometimes confusing :) )
[01:26:41] <SWPadnos> and Lola also has balls, so ...
[01:27:05] <cradek> it's funny because it can be read two ways: it [m2's effect on g92] was stupid, or it [making the change] was stupid
[01:27:19] <SWPadnos> lovely english
[01:27:33] <SWPadnos> even when it's correct, it's often ambiguous
[01:27:51] <cradek> like in the song, I don't have to commit to either meaning
[01:27:57] <SWPadnos> heh
[01:28:24] <cradek> so, I guess, nobody got it :-)
[01:28:42] <jepler> looks that way
[01:28:46] <cradek> hahaha
[01:28:48] <cradek> Unsubscribe
[01:28:51] <cradek> Sent on the Now Network? from my Sprint?? BlackBerry
[01:29:01] <cradek> sent on the what?? whose?? blackberry??
[01:29:36] <jepler> it's one of those things they say at team-building exercises, after the part called the "ice breaker". they say "now network!"
[01:29:36] <SWPadnos> apparently JonE likes the change :)
[01:30:08] <cradek> uhh, now network??
[01:30:12] <cradek> ok, I can see it
[01:30:19] <SWPadnos> like Emperor Stringettes
[01:30:24] <SWPadnos> The Now String!
[01:30:31] <SWPadnos> (as used in hospitals)
[01:30:34] <jepler> what I don't understand is why they call it an "ice breaker" but actually you end up putting grape jelly down your boxers
[01:30:58] <jepler> (step 3 said "now put the jelly on")
[01:31:42] <cradek> now I'm lost
[01:32:26] <jepler> that's OK, don't worry about it
[01:32:32] <jepler> in fact I regret even bringing it up
[01:33:16] <skunkworks_> sounds like something from dilbert...
[01:53:25] <cradek> so one "WHAAAT??? Finally?" and one "oh goodness"
[01:53:37] <cradek> no "you fool!!" yet
[01:54:59] <SWPadnos> I wonder if there are any specs that tell us if it's a "correct" "fix"
[01:55:10] <cradek> nope
[01:55:20] <SWPadnos> oh. lucky you
[01:55:27] <SWPadnos> us
[01:56:12] <cradek> the fix is contrary to the ngc spec, of course
[01:56:23] <SWPadnos> well see, there's a spec
[01:56:37] <SWPadnos> that would tell us this is an incorrect "fix"
[01:56:54] <cradek> right
[01:57:00] <cradek> but then what?
[01:57:23] <SWPadnos> damfino
[01:58:17] <SWPadnos> I think this jar of Kimchi is getting hotter as I reach the bottom
[02:58:00] <jepler> good evening bradmc
[05:16:41] <CIA-1> EMC: 03cradek 07TRUNK * 10emc2/tcl/tkemc.tcl: I think this will work better now.
[07:17:42] <SWPadnos_> SWPadnos_ is now known as SWPadnos
[11:47:37] <BigJohnT> wake up :)
[12:20:28] <skunkworks> what are you doing up so early on a sunday?
[12:25:41] <BigJohnT> I usually get up at 5 am
[12:27:35] <skunkworks> I should still be sleeping. ;) I just woke up awake.
[12:28:07] <skunkworks> probaly thinking about all the stuff I need to do.
[12:28:12] <skunkworks> probably
[12:28:26] <BigJohnT> I'm working on my gs2 example
[12:30:22] <skunkworks> gs2?
[12:31:02] <BigJohnT> automation direct vfd driver for the g2d line
[12:31:08] <BigJohnT> works pretty slick
[12:31:38] <BigJohnT> emc <=> modbus <=> gs2
[12:31:56] <BigJohnT> SWPadnos: wrote most of the driver
[12:49:43] <skunkworks> neat :)
[12:51:00] <BigJohnT> take a look at this http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/hal_pyvcp_examples.html#r1_3
[12:51:22] <BigJohnT> but it looks better now but cvs is broken
[12:57:46] <BigJohnT> hmm lets see if this compiles
[13:09:13] <BigJohnT> that is much better now :)
[13:10:13] <BigJohnT> from 12 lines of code in hal to 2 lines to turn on the fwd/rev led's
[13:10:18] <BigJohnT> leds
[13:34:51] <alex_joni> BigJohnT: oh, that reminds me ..
[13:34:59] <alex_joni> your last commit on gcode.lyx
[13:35:26] <BigJohnT> yes
[13:35:37] <alex_joni> I'm not sure if the last paragraphs sound right..
[13:35:50] <alex_joni> + If you don't intend them to be there for the next run of the same program
[13:35:50] <alex_joni> + make sure you program a G92.1 or G92.2 before the end of your program.
[13:35:50] <alex_joni> + If you don't want them in effect on bootup make sure you program a G92.1
[13:35:50] <alex_joni> + before the end of your file.
[13:36:31] <BigJohnT> what part sounds wierd? all of it
[13:36:39] <alex_joni> I understand what you mean, but I'm not sure someone else would
[13:37:13] <BigJohnT> I know I'm abbynormal :)
[13:37:51] <alex_joni> * alex_joni thinks how to reword it
[13:38:12] <BigJohnT> ok, thanks
[13:40:06] <alex_joni> maybe something like this? http://pastebin.com/m14cb4bee
[13:41:19] <bradmc> jepler: Good morning.
[13:41:59] <BigJohnT> * BigJohnT hums the final jepordy tune while waiting for the link to load
[13:42:32] <alex_joni> sorry.. pastebin.ca doesn't open here
[13:43:09] <BigJohnT> opened fine I just had to stop the other three pages from loading and kill the vid load :)
[13:43:51] <BigJohnT> looks much better... dunno where my mind was :0
[13:44:34] <BigJohnT> as soon as jepler wakes up and kicks cvs so it will wake up I'll change it :)
[13:47:44] <alex_joni> not sure if it's better, but I think it holds the same info - or hope it does ;)
[13:48:42] <BigJohnT> it reads better than what I said
[13:59:44] <jepler> ffs
[14:00:02] <jepler> my network used to be so reliable, then I upgraded it
[14:00:09] <jepler> now it's nothing but pain and suffering
[14:00:16] <BigJohnT> I hate when that happens

[15:23:30] <BigJohnT> hmmm
[15:23:51] <CIA-1> EMC: 03bigjohnt 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/drivers/GS2.lyx: minor edit
[15:27:46] <CIA-1> EMC: 03bigjohnt 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/gcode/main.lyx: I guess you gotta actually read it before you commit it :)
