hmmm. jepler, can you look at http://pastebin.ca/1457255
that's on an up-to-date dapper install, with a very recent CVS (like last night)
SWPadnos: that's weird
I thought so too
python is 2.4.something
in other news, that pastebin is already indexed by google and is on the second page of hits for my search
does this work, or does it fail? python -c 'print "x-y".replace("-", "_")'
your Python is extremely broken
maybe I shouldn't have deleted that whole /usr/local tree :)
I can reinstall python I guess
hmmm. well reinstalling everything that starts with "python" didn't fix it
now it may be time to uninstall then reinstall, but I fear there's a lot that depends on python

alex_joni: I can't decide. perhaps I'll wear one of each
finally, a use case for having two feet
ha! I thought they were Cesium clocks!
"As a result, in 1967 the Thirteenth General Conference on Weights and Measures defined the second of atomic time in the International System of Units as
the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium-133 atom."
see - that's why we have general conferences on weights and measuers
and yet they drag their feet introducing an exact integer value for Avogadro's number: http://arxiv.org/abs/physics/0612087
It would also eliminate the need for the kilogram artifact altogether, since then, by definition, a kilogram would be exactly 1000/12 the mass of NA* atoms of carbon-12
^^ it's like deleting an entire source file from the universe, and still having it work properly
[12:55:58] <alex_joni> http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e0/ChipScaleClock2_HR.jpg
but "1000/12 the mass of NA* atoms of carbon-12" is generated in the make process
as long as you have the C-12 source
and the proper preprocess function
the problem with their definition is that 1000/12 NA*-atoms is not an integer
it would be nice if it were :(
oh, heh, I see that they get to that objetion on page 4
but they're making those balls of silicon, not carbon
so it will be 1000/28 (or whatever Si is)
which is "even less" of an integer :)
jepler: how was my information incorrect?
alex_joni: "make" doesn't copy any nmlfiles around anymore
see r1.292 of src/Makefile
huh. I must be missing an email from the user list
I see JMK's reply to it, but not the email with the quoted text
I did not get it either.
the birthday one? I got it.
oh - so did it.
it is in the last emc.nbl emails he sent
don't you guys have threading mailreaders?
Yes - but I don't use it. I really should. (using thunderbird now and used to use outlook express)
I only have two from Stuart, and "56" doesn't appear in either of them
and yes, I use a threading mail reader
jepler: that's what I meant..
jepler: that it used to copy emc.nml around, and now doesn't anymore
probably didn't express it clear enough :/
sometimes my reading comprehension is bad
I'm sure it was a combination
hey - there's Stuarts birthday message
SWPadnos: don't you love SF's promptness
Proplen whit servos foun
EMC did not had eny bug
Proplem was faulty clutch between servo and ballscrew
I'm glad you found the cause of your problem
thanks for the update
Other proplem is I need to make my own homing sequency
see #emc :)
