yup, but leaving for home soon
are there any future plans for adding non interpolated joints to emc? (moving from switch to switch, available for homing infrastructure, from emc will be only velocity output)?
we (and not just only we) have very advanced THC configurations that will be a lot simpler with some homing and limits support from emc
(just want to know)
I'm not aware of anyone working on such a thing.
jepler: d48c422 fixed sizeof problems
micges_work: thank you for testing
jthornton: it occurs to me that examples/pci_parallel_port can be simplified for master; you should be able to just specify cfg="0 1 in" or something like that..
(as long as you've removed/commented the line in /etc/modprobe.d which will be done when installing 2.4 from a package)
nothing too exciting. I've been looking for a GPIB stack for avr that has a sane license, but haven't found one yet
cradek recently reminded me that my digital storage scope has GPIB, but a GPIB-USB dongle or other kind of interface seems to run $100+
hmm... gpib has kicked my butt a few times.... I finally bought some serial to gpib convertors cheap on epay... they seem to work ok
the scope should not be too bad.... it was probably designed to talk to a printer for screen dumps... a little more work if you want to do the settings
I have a tek 7d20 digital scope plugin that I have been using.... I have not tried the hpib interface yet
jepler: i bet you could create an AVR variant

jepler: just buy a gpib pen plotter and a scanner...
cradek: that's a terrible idea
instead, I should point a 16-megapixel DSLR at it and then use sophisticated image processing algorithms to rebuild a pixel-accurate representation of the screen, correcting for skew, camera focus, and beam bloom/focus
yeah, who doesn't already have one of those plotters anyway?
(I noticed last weekend that I have two of them, actually. I wonder if the other one works.)
you guys gonna brave the storm this weekend?
uh oh, is the forecast bad?
we got 8" last night and it's still coming down
not sure what the bones say about this weekend
I had looked at the forecast last night, and it said you'd get 1-2, not 8!
it's pretty sloppy here right now
but it might dry out in the next couple days
jepler: why don't you go ahead and not make those nonrefundable reservations...
cradek: luckily enough, I have not made them
seb_kuzminsky: 'an extra 15% to make the reservation cancelable'
too bad you can't later elect to pay the extra 15% in order to upgrade to a cancelable reservation..
I've never heard of such a thing. What a scam.
seb_kuzminsky: you'll have to drop by tomorrow and give us a weather update so we can make our final decision..
huh, weather.gov's 2 day history shows no precipitation in the 3-day history. so much for trusting the government.
15% is pretty cheap if you're talking about plane tickets
oh, well that's different
though non-cancelable/non-changeable/paid-in-advance is usually about that much cheaper
if we do go I guess we'll just use cradek's method of making an internet reservation while sitting in the hotel parking lot..
sometimes you can use their own wireless to do it
(the cheaper the place, the more likely)
jepler: ok, I'll take care of it

anyone cares for a google wave invite?
I have some to give away too
can't figure out what it's useful for anyhow
jepler: I've been meaning to write a aether bot for it
jepler: take away irc, and you'll come close =)
jepler: Did those links help any?
alex_joni, isn't there some Android app for Google Wave?
SWPadnos: You got an android?
got a Droid
first smartphone purchase :)
SWPadnos: What was the damage on a data plan?
sme as always - an extra $30 per month for supposedly unlimited data
not tethering though
SWPadnos: 3g ?
no tethering - those bastards!
sadly, it's Verizon, which means it's not GSM, whicn means it doesn't work overseas
yeah, they all charge more and give less for tethering plans
unlimited??? That dont' sound right, usually 5GB MAX/mo
unlimited smartphone usage, but somewhere in the fine print it says that if you use too much, they'll kill your account or charge you extra or something
the tethering plans all limit you to 5GB/mo, with no pretense of unlimited data
