micges_work: sorry, wasn't around till now
thx for letting me know
did you guys get dumped on also?
not so much snow, less than 6 inches total, but freaking cold
-17F this morning
we are getting that soon
we are around 12 to 18" and now the wind is starting
I wish I had bought a set of ski boots.
no time like the present
get gaiters too ;-)
that's some kind of mutant smiley
Has anyone implemented a "spindle running" hour meter and/or a "distance traveled" meter?
mshaver: for tool life measuring?
micges: Actually for machine life expectancy testing, but something done of tool life purposes would probably work for what I need to do.
mshaver, someone asked about this (again) yesterday or Monday. I think the major hurdle is keeping track of the "hour meter" across runs
maybe in var file?
then it needs to be in a var to start with
or you need to run some G-codes at startup and shutdown to pre-load and save the timer/counter(s)
SWPadnos: I didn't know anyone else was interested in this. One solution is to hook up a Hobbs meter to the spindle power, but I'd rather have a software solution. I'll have to look up if the log function has a way of recording timestamps.

hm, somebody should do something about this:
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/emc2, it will be ignored in a future release.
(just noticed on my 9.10 system)
probably just renaming the file in debian/extras would work, but I don't have the urge to test it at the moment
