one point to anybody who understands my message to emc-developers; two points to the person who can point out the technical error that I no doubt made in it
do I get anything for reading through to the end?
cradek: hm, I guess I scaled the points poorly
surely that's worth at least one point
if only integer points are given, I agree the scaling was off
jepler: actually, I think you sent that message only to me [git-adm]
you are not the first to reply to a -commit message and expect it to go somewhere other than to just me
(I wonder where it should go)
cradek: devel list sounds like a good choice
cradek: hah, oops
cradek: didn't reply to emc-commits go to the developers list once upon a time?
yeah, they did -- http://pastebin.ca/1683670
yeah that's gotta be the right answer. I will try to fix it.
it baffles me how you can take the day off work and still be up and around at 7:25
I made a pcb on jr last night. I brought it to show you, but you aren't here...
what's the circuit board for?
greenhouse temperature/humidity sensor
how stupid is this: a microcontroller board that you can only write software for using a website. http://hackaday.com/2009/11/21/review-mbed-nxp-lpc1768-microcontroller/
> what really sets it apart is the development environment: the entire system — editor, compiler, libraries and reference materials — are completely web-based
five (!) temp sensors and humidity, and it will send the data over rs232 to a logger indoors
hahaha I agree that "really sets it apart"
cradek: how fast where you able to run the board?
spindle is 6k, so I cut at 6ipm
I'd get max working again if I was doing many pcbs
I bet the corners are all quite sharp though
yep, it is perfect

maybe that's why people write "loosing" -- it's to avoid the negative connotation of "loss".
well that's one explanation
[14:33:35] <cradek> http://code.google.com/p/heekscnc/wiki/HowToUse
the algorithm used to cut the cone looks pretty poor
the ball too - the rapids appear to go through it
better than this one though http://heekscnc.googlecode.com/svn/wiki/adaptiveopen.png
I like some of the explanations
dchangright for example
cradek: you could just mount a high speed spindle on your jr.. Off the side or something.
maybe someday I'll find a speeder for it
what I should do instead is put a super high speed spindle on max, which will obviously never need to cut metal again
more 1/8 collets on the way...
cradek: are your toolchanger pockets full yet?
jepler: shamefully I think I have more tool holders than pockets, but they are not currently all full
