two words: FLIGHT MEDICAL
that sounds like valium..
yeah...but get a prescription for that stuff here and you are grounded
(i'm a pilot)
or just while you eat em?
seems kind of silly to me
but that's the rule here
I guess the reasoning is
if you need medication for stress
you should not be intrusted with people's lives
why is that?
well, it's usa.. that tells it all
actually makes sense I guess
Flying is not at all stressful
until something goes wrong...
well post 911 USA is getting to be a police state
getting... Have gotten
english composition practice?
sorry I was using the merkin dialect
les: flight medical ? what's that ?
every so often you have to take a physical with a flight surgeon
Last time i had to negotiate immigration, I could swear that the USA had already turned in to a police state.... Photographing & fingerprinting everyone.... Suprised they didn't take DNA samples as well.
in other words... a finger wave ha ha
If you so much as take aspirin regularly and there is a record
les: and there's no way you could try not to stress that much?
I know it sounds like a stupid question.. :)
I guess I'll never ever own a cert :p
anon: I am type A. If no stress is availible I will create it haha
anonimasu: best not to subject your self to gov regs
i'm getting stressed out noe bacause of all those misspellings ha
but hey...I can't type
slomo: I live off antiinflamatories.. :)
waht mipsellings ?
les: it dosent matter we understand you anyway
...and I made As in college grammar...sigh
for a free society, we have a lot of police entitiies
crs syndrome I guess
slomo: sure do
I can't take commercial air travel anymore
can't spell either
I get upset with all the seaches and such
now that was a typo
les: your not even a commercial pilot?
les knows how to spell searches ;)
just a private pilot
and can type quick, also
we fly in the same airspace as commercial jets
sometimes even with permission
most times without :)
haha I learned to fly 8 dme from ohare...so yeah
I flew at 500' over the 'molesworth' cruise missile base once ...
they got 'a bit' upset
bust 1600 msl in the pattern...shiny official cars will be there to meet you when you land
but ive only been chased down the runway by fire-engines the once :)
1600 msl ?
I busted ohare once...just turned the transponder off real quik and made a nice dive
1600 feet above mean sea level
the BS'er doesn't stand a chance !
opps the first
why's that illegal?
controlled air space
well they do get upset when you bust the airspace of one of the word's largest airports and they have to shut it down
you get a big central core around a commercial airport, like a big cylinder
ah yeah, non flight space..
all the way to the ground . .. plus 'stubs' on the runway axes ...
or whatever they call it :)
so yo ucan fly around the side, under the stub
but break 1600 (or whatever the stub height is) and they get upset
in reallity, unless you have mode C on the txpdr, theyll never know
We can fly in that airspace... but must have a 24 hr reservation
and $150 to land
I need to go to bed now
robin_sz: txpdr ? we don't need no steenking txpdr
slomo: kite flying?
have a nice night anon
even the little tail dragger I fly now has a txdpr with mode C
slomo: just kidding
yes mode c altitude reporting is required most everywhere here
thats the nice thing about 'permit' aircraft .. if you find some nice gear, you can fit it
I thnk they call it 'experimental' in the US?
homebuilt on a permit to fly
don't fly em
maybe recreational pilot cert
lost too many friends in em
slomo: better to get the full PPSEL
recreational is very limited
ive lost too many on bikes
les: even that's limiting
sure it is
but one can always get more ratings
I have only two
les: or go under the radar
when I have more money, I'll get an IR and a night rating
complex aircraft and High performance
I have night
beautiful, smooth, DANGEROUS
ive done a few night landings
you land soemwhere deeeeeep in the runway
in the bfr for night you have to land with the electrical system turned off
biennial flight review
all pilots are retested every two years
im out of hours ... again
but flying a bit more now with $mate
we share it out
night bfr requires simulated electrical AND engine failure
I paye for the fuel, he pays for the plane. seems fair
don't schedule it on a moonless night!
night gliding in a brick lovely
les: a/c type you fly ?
when I firstl learnt it was at a big airport, 4000' runway, lots of movement
I do not fly at night much...deadly in a single engine plane
I learnt ZIP about flying
the stuff ive doen recently, grass strip in a taildragger ...
its been GREAT
we visited a gliding club the other day, no runway, just a big patch of green, choose a direction and land it. no radio, no signals board .. just you and your decisions
22.214.171.124/bdi-4.08.iso = 4.4 hours to go
slomo: Piper warrior, archer, Dakota,cessna 172, 182, diamond katana
robin: I do not have a tail dragger endorsement
les: quite as differance ther
slomo: not much difference...except for power
after a coffee, we used the bit of tarmac that people think is the road to the clubhouse to take off on .. the guy in the clubhouse just said "make sure theres no one turning in at the gate and you'll be fine, if someone turns in after you start rolling , keep going, you'll go over the top befor ethey reeach you" ...
you dont get that at big airports :)
you get to think a lot more for yourself
one guy we meet up with has a KR2 homebuilt,
les: NOTHING beats HP
smallest aircraft to do UK->australia :)
slomo: yes..weight and balance in a c172 is such that one lardass in the back and full fuel can kill you
dakota: if it fits inside weight and balance is ok
les: i know, lost five buddies that way, in one a/c
les: a 172, no less
172 ... 4 seats
a 172 has four seats but is not a four passenger aircraft
unless you have 30 minutes of fuel
a 182 is a better proposition
flying up canyon, hot august afternoon, you figure it out
5 ... thats not an accident
thats putting real effort into it
les: like that KR2?
young pilot, rented a/c
3 and full tanks is pushing it in a 172
flying isnt dangerous
but it doesnt forgive mistakes
the center of gravity allowance is about 10 inches in that plane
you read some of the ferry pilot stuff on 172's?
full tanks, and a barrel
too far back and a spin is unrecoverable
robin: read some...particularly about feery pilots short lifespans
I read some stuff a while back about guys ferrying 172s to europe .... full tnaks and a barrel in the back. fly in ground effect for a couple of 100nm over the sea
oh look, wave.
can't get above ground effect?
this was back in the days when trimble had just started making GPSs
like wright brothers flyer simulation I tried
so .. ealry 80s I guess
their 'canrd' desing was not helping them any
completely unstable in pitch
bank past 20 degrees...instant spin
at least on the simulator
probably less in reallity ;)
wing warping .. great paln ;)
you know this talk is making me want to go to the airport
and be relieved of my hard earned money
slomo: flying little airplanes is HORRIBLY expensive
actually big ones too
les: priced the cost of fabric lately ?
i'm in the wrong business
no but I'm sure it's high
les: what's avgas going for there these days ?
$3 or so for 100ll
that would be cheap for robin
i've heard reports of better than $5.00
in the bush
some places no doubt
Georgia has some of the lowest fuel prices in the country
you a Georgia boy ?
born here...grew up in south florida...mostly lived in Chicago
so yes and no?
I am here now because I inherited a farm.
you don't trype with an accent
les: this is my mates KR2 site, http://www.alagem.com/cgi-bin/subsite/wt/welcome.asp
les: his UK to AUS trip has aflightplan on there
that's why i couldn't place the drawl ...
but I casnnot even understand my relatives here
I eat grits though
me too :)
My hillbilly relatives say I talk too fast and they cannot understand me
see that spec: empty weight 242Kg 536 lb :)
what's the wing loading?
for a time , iworked for an indian, from georgia, and when he called on the phone....
it was, like come on, spit it out, hurry up and say it
I am a bit cherokee
only a little
slipppppppy though ... 105 knot cruise and 152 knot max
he was all cherokee
anyway, its late
high wing loading=smooth ride
low = passengers puke
but ... tricky to land
its VERY quick on the landings
curious slomo...how did you end up in alaska?
my dad met my mom, and the rest is, as they say, history
so a native alaskan?
no, damn cold
we have had an unusual "mini summer" here for a couple weeks
temps in the 70's
but that is about to end
It does get below zero here sometimes
not like Chicago though
I have an issue in the spray booth ehen it gets cold
I have heated makeup air
but only about 20 degrees temp rise
so on cold days we cannot spray
it may be a problem soon
it would be a problem here today then, about -2 at just after 4pm
need a heat exchanger to recover some of that warmth we just blow out the booth
common problem I guess
well when you get it built, send that warm air this way, would ya ?
I need to go get some dinner here I guess
still early for you
8: 12 here
yea, but it's starting to get dark, daylight is short thistime of year
4 hr day prob?
more like 6, at the max
ok to the kitchen for me...talk later!
daylight about 9am, dark by about 4:30-5
nice chatting with you
same here later
I made it back from dinner
126.96.36.199/bdi-4.08.iso = ETA 11:31:33 what's up with that ?
15:35:34] <slomo> 188.8.131.52/bdi-4.08.iso = 4.4 hours to go
oh some carnie asada soft tacos :)
I got a spam message, froma bank, so I checked it out, its a way for the holder to steal acount info from the bank, I tired turning it in, but the dang real banks form to submit questions and stuff sucked so hard I couldnt paste into it, it kept vomiting onthe email's html tags, so I guess I wont be a hero today
slomo : oh my yeah I did
gezr: good, gotta go, maybe send it to your isp
03jmkasunich * 10emc2/ (8 files in 5 dirs): added emcmot command and NML message to set homing parameters - the full capability of the EMC2 homing code as described in EMC2_Code_Notes can now be configured from the ini file and used as needed

Not long finished downloading I see...
ack, either your server, or my wget has problems, wget -c no worky
i've several files in the dir***.iso1 *.2 and so on
got the full file names to hand ?
so i'm back to one of the other mirrors, using kget, showing about 6 hrs to go
bdi-4.08.iso & bdi-4.08.iso.sum - Two files. One the image, the second, the md5sum.
here's whats in the dir: bdi-4.08.iso, size 1271376, bdi-4.08.iso.1, size 44800, bdi-4.08.iso.2 size 220363104
failed dl's from my perspective
That's the kind of result wget gives without the -c flag.
yea, iknow:), it will not resume
wget -c http: bla bla
Connecting to 184.108.40.206:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Continued download failed on this file, which conflicts with `-c'
Refusing to truncate existing file `bdi-4.08.iso'.
what about "wget -c 81.100..." (without the http) ?
Hmm... a little clue in the wget man page...
" Note that -c only works with FTP servers and with HTTP servers that support the "Range" header."
I suspect that boa doesn't support the range header...
thats funny, cause kget will resume from that location
kget is just a GUI frontend for wget...
ach got a call about supervising a grad student research project sponsored by my old corporation
As if I wasn't busy enough
Has to do with an encoder line I developed for them
May have to spend some time at university if Illinois
but sure can't get away right now
right now it will have to be telphone consulting
Having a problem with phones...can't hear them ring
with the cnc router, dust collecter, belt sander, and air compressor running at the same time it is noisy
need to hook some kind of light to the phone ringer
les: thats funny, ican't hear your phone ring either
well off to the shop....starting to think about some new wiring. With
all the machines running we are starting to tax the electric supply. I think I will
need to go from 40 to 100 amps...
paul_c: this from the archives dated: 2003-11-09 14:28......
... why not have a collection of working ini-files at the
dropbox on linuxCNC???
is there such a beast ?
[16:14:51] <paul_c> http://www.linuxcnc.org/Dropbox/
man, shoulda asked earlier, been searching the archives for info such as this
not to much there
You get a couple of "real world" ini files that work for Sherline on the CD
hmm.. no one around?
covered up the irc window while looking at Jon's PPMC code...
hope better than mine...
emc/bdi-4.08.iso-1600 = 1.5 hours to go !!!
slomo: what link do you have?
* alex_joni had big trouble with transformes today :(
check and post the md5sum when you're done.
alex_joni: the cimweb one
and what internet access?
internet connection? you got some broadband?
I mean can your connection do better than the cimweb link?
yes, i believ so
did you try other links?
alex_joni: yes, started at paul_c site, using wget, had problems, prolly from my isp, wget wasn't resumeing late last nite....
so i switched to kget, and resumed a prior dl
even if only for speed testing.. tell me how it works
paul_c: I burned 2 transformers today, and no idea why :(
alex_joni: 48.18K/s ETA 3:15:34
not that bad... not that great either
alex_joni: wish i had known bought that ealier
I did announce it on the list ;)
you should subscribe to the mailinglist
ebay.com working for anyone?
alex_joni: i do, must have deleted the mail :(
A-L-P-H-A: eby.com first page works... don't know about searches
well... ebay.com won't even load for me.
A-L-P-H-A: search workes too
can you resolve the name?
try `ping www.ebay.com`
kinda working... just mega slow
maybe I should have asked for a indexable carbide boring boring bar to bore diameters of 25 to 40mm diatermeter. 'trying' to search ebay for new toys.
anyone ever made their own carbide indexable tools?
paul_c: Does the emc .deb need anything from /usr/local/rcslib?
I know there's been work on that, but I thought it was with emc2
Other than emc not working, the kernel and module .debs are installed just fine
emc2 doesn't use rcslib
emc2 uses libnml (a cleaned up version of rcslib)
only emc1 uses rcslib..
don't know about the .deb thou... (but I think the emc .deb contains the rcslib aswell)
emc-0.0.1 uses libnml which is included in the package.
Heh, I should have knocked on wood...I just had X hiccup
paul_c: cool stuff that emc-0.0.1 uses libnml ;)
Okay, when I 'sudo /usr/local/emc/generic.run'
dang, wish I could cut-n-paste across two computers
man... wished my lathe would just magically make what I think of. :)... or have the tooling that I require.
plat/nonrealtime/bin/inivar: can't open generic.ini
Can't find variable EMCMOT in section [EMCMOT] of file generic.ini
anyone want to see my lathe running? http://www.lloydleung.com/videos/lathe_running.asf
(14.84megs) nothing special... just it auto start, do a part, auto stop.
No wonder it can't open generic.ini - it's not there
The only .ini in /usr/local/emc is smithy.ini
what date/version is the emc package ?
I backed up my emc.ini, but I also need all the emc.*
Anyone got a tip for this? I'm stuck in a situation where I have a tiny boring bar... where the bar's diameter is maybe 5/16" or 1/4". I'm trying to bore a diameter of 29.00mm. How should I go about doing this? The depth is 22mm as well. Stock material is tool brass.
* alex_joni_ just heared on the news there are some heavy storms in the UK...
What I'm worried about is chatter... anyway to solve this without getting a bigger boring bar?
very light cuts at high speed
freezing rain here this morning... I had a sheet of ice on my car windshield.
0.005" or even less?
0.1mm sounds about right
<A-L-P-H-A>: If I were doing a finishing pass in a manual lathe, I'd make a special tool that could shave 0.0005" off at a time
paul_c: hope you're well
asdfqwega: Where did you get the deb from ?
The machine is CNC'd already.
converted Schuablin 102
hmm... I'll just get it close, and do it light slow cuts at high rpm.
Shhould have configs for generic, sherline, and a couple more.
paul, what would I do to peer inside a .deb file, to see what it's filelist is?
alex_joni_ is now known as alex_joni
dpkg -L emc
interesting...they should be there
I'll re-install it
ini files are marked as configs, so existing ones won't get overwritten unless OK'd
re-install the .deb didn't work - so now it's removal and install
apt-get remove --purge emc
had to remove axis, too
for some reason, "/usr/local not empty - not removed"
I've tried --purge twice just now
first time, tried apt-get install python2.3-axis
same result - not all files were there
purge again, and apt'd emc first
everything working now

* paul_c hides
do you have an active e-mail address for matt?
I see SoCal hits the global news
Mud slides & rain...
OK.. You after Matt Shaver ?
Is the motion-sync'd IO still on the stepper's port, or is the MOTION_IO_ADDRESS valid?
A bug in the tcp(4) stack allows an invalid argument to be used in in calculating the TCP retransmit timeout. By sending packets with specific values in the TCP timestamp option, an attacker can cause a system panic.
a single remote packet can crash openbsd! haha
those dolt's won't even consider it an update
its a "reliability" fix
MOTION_IO_ADDRESS is obsolete. Use M62/M63
Matt haver <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Oooo.... A new face
I was poking around linuxcnc.org, and dicided to drop in.
paul_c: everything seems to be OK, just have to tweak the .ini, and get a new parport card
I think this one finally died
* paul_c has several parports in non-standard locations...
paul_c: are they all isa or are they a mix of pci and isa parports?
I was having problems, and I suspected the card, so I switched it over to another motherboard - same problems, so it's toast
Hard to find ISA parports
CommDweeb: A mix of ISA and PCI cards
As it is, I'm going to have to scroung around to find some Slot1 mobo's with ISA
I have a Slot1 P2-450 I want to use, and it need 100Mhz FSB
paul_c: Cool, I just got 24 old and slow 166mhz Toshiba laptops donated and I am going to try and use them to run robots, has anyone used pcmcia parports or am I barking up the wrong tree.
pcmcia might work.... Never tried it though...
asdfqwega: $25 too much for a MoBo ?
Ok, then I guess I'll find out.
paul_c: Not really, but I could probably beg an old clunker off of some friends
I was looking at using it as a grounds surveyor
paul_c: iso md5sum as published : 704cf1b0208b58f71800250e118e2f71 bdi-4.08.iso
paul_c: as downloaded : 704cf1b0208b58f71800250e118e2f71 bdi-4.08.iso
I am going to use the sound card as a cind of metal detector.
looks good to me..
off to see the wizard :)
From some of the things I've read about PCMCIA and compact flash, it should work well
'pends if you have to go through the pcmcia drivers to access the port
Ok, wel I might be able to get away with running it through one port.
paul_c: net connect required for any further updates ?
The idea on th e drewing board is a lawn mower. I am hoping the metal detector can see curbs and driveways.
paul_c: after the install.. that is
CommDweeb: You planning on using a BDI install ?
I was going to start there, I have lots of old PC's laying around
BDI-2.xx will be OK for the laptop, but you want more memory and an i686 chip for the others
Ok, that saves me some time.
I am still in the hardware design mode, but I am going to bring up a controller so I can at least check torques and response times before I settle on final gearing.
If it works out, I'll probably try and commercialize it.
I have BDI-4.08(1/2) running on a celeron 450
I'm looking for a solar powered mower/edger that can handle 1/2 acre in a reasonable way.
paul_c, how does that run?
So I am very worried about power consumption.
Solar power & large DC motors.... Doesn't bode well unless you have lots of sunshine
I'm in Texas
If that doesn't work I'll probably set it up to find a charging/docking station.
get a couple of sheep - Come the winter, you get to eat them. ;)
Ha Ha, I would love to, but not inside the city limits.
* paul_c disappears to burn some pizza
Sheep work OK on grass, but with all the brambles around here, I need a weedeater
weedeater = goat
I'm hoping to out a 50AH 24 volt battery on it and use a 50 watt pannel to track the sun.
CommDweeb: how about wind geny powered steppers ?
If it works, I am hoping to sell a passle of them to places like golf courses and cemetaries and have them only come out at night.
I wish better luck with the idea than I had
asdfqwega: which was what ?
wind geny powered steppers??? you got a URL I can look at??
CommDweeb: hold on,
I have too many "real world" obstacles for a robot mower to be practical
CommDweeb: He means a stepper motor turned wind generator
CommDweeb: have a look here : http://www.c-realevents.demon.co.uk/steppers/stepmotor.htm
CommDweeb: i've done some prelim seaches because a friend lives off grid, sterling motors is another option
Old cemetaries have a lot of obsticals too, that is why grounds keeping is so expensive in them
Up here in the hills of Ohio, I'd be picking branches out of the mower every time the wind blew
CommDweeb: doesn't really help with cutting the cord, but it may help you rethink :)
And if I spent a lot of money on a full blown robot, I'm sure the whole tree would fall on it
hm, maybe you could implement a sollution with a suspension..
if you can wait for about 1� year
there will be small portabel fuelcells
Lots of wind here
and building a recharging/refueling station would probably be pretty easy
CommDweeb: doesn't take much input for a stepper to gen some volts.amp
Yes, and the charging station would hide it during the day
anonimasu: 1.5 years? Got a link on that??
asdfqwega: there's supposedly a company that'll start marketing fuel cell rechargers for laptops.. this year
cant remember the link..
slomo: I have about 15 old printers laying around, I'll have to try that.
CommDweeb: pretty interesting when you get into it
CommDweeb: especilly the sterling eng. aspect of it
you could use ulrasonic rangefinders.. to watch out for stuf
I have up to 70mph inline winds in my back yard here atleast twice a year, it is going to be fun designing a wind mill that will survive it.
CommDweeb: that's low velocity here haha
If you put in a WiFi card and a GPS you can really do some great mapping with just touch sensors.
I thought about using them to detect the distance off the ground
thus keeping the length of the grass constant..
anonimasu: your sick
and watching out for stuff flying ;) close to to mower..
I'd love to write the software for it :]
anonimasu: grass constant height ?....
That would be good, but the ground level changes a lot around here due to shifting clay's
i'm lucky to mow it once a week\
commdweeb: if you measure the distance to the ground and adjust the suspension accordingly
I was thinking of using a tilt sensor to determine level and schedule fill to keep it level.
Use a three wheeled chassis
hm, 4 is better.. :)
i'm outta here, the latest has finished burnig, and i'm offd to install
More complicated though.
if you have the suspension for each weel controlled that is..
but well, it's advanced..
I mow the lawn maybe 3 times a year - that's why I have 3 sets of lawn ornaments
see ya !!
but you can pass obstacles neatly
One set with 1' stilts, one with 2' stilts, and one with 3' stilts
I usually have to mow twice a week in the spring
if you have the weight distribution even..
When the grass gets too high, just change to the next set
That way the neighbors think I mowed the lawn
Hows Rigel Kentaurus?
Actually, with 3 wheels and 3 wheel steering you can do an incredible job around obsticals
* picnet pictures a robin reliant with a grass cutter slung underneath.
* anonimasu didnt think around I thought over :9
the only problem is how much power a 4 wheel driven adjustable suspension setup would draw
Oops, gota call comming in, brb
I wish small torque engines were cheap
Darn, I gota server down, I'll have to drop in again sometime, Latter.
how do you guys keep your shop clean and orderly? I seem to lack this skill.
I have no idea how others do it :)
* anonimasu cant seem to keep it really clean eiher
Ouch...I'm getting a stitch in my side from laughing too hard
I can find my 6" calipre, and my 200mm calipre, but can't find my 100mm calipre.
Yeah, I play that game, too
"Lose your mind while looking for stuff"
I play the Advanced Edition ruleset

paul_c: are you around ?
now he's not
prolly time for him to E.A.T
I believe it's almost 10pm for him.
well... /ctcp paul_c time doesn't work so I can't tell.
I think he's in london
past the tracks, on the wrong side.
:) I've got no clue what I'm babbling.
well we are doing better...killing the gouge with anti vibration worked well

a new one for me
what change did you make to the machine?
les: tell me about it please :)
it was the program
or the cnc program
at the beginning of the unblended arc about 1.5 cm had gouges from the accel jerk
only .1 mm deep
but costing $300 a week to sand out
I lead in with a tangent G1
still does not blend
yeah you told me about it earlier
* anonimasu is curious about signal processing
but the short g1 starts the vibration
so you slowed down the g1 right?
and the length is timed so that the g2 vibration phase is opposite
so were putting a zero near that pole
but further away from the realaxis
It's a linear systerm so a second heaviside function cancels the effect of the first if the timing and amplidude is just right
will you be able to make up for what you've lost?
thanks I had to think of something...I don't like to lose $300 a week
how'd you measure it?`
well the labor for sanding out the gouge before was paid
it's gone now
I measured it with calipers!
and I know the speed and accel
it leaves a record like a phonograph record
clasic complex conjugate pole pair
that's over my head
* A-L-P-H-A was lost... and I'm a math major.
heh i changed router
my download speed went up to 300kb/S
good, I was starting to wonder if everyone here was better educated than me
and the uppload went aswell..
* anonimasu is happy
now you got me testing my internal home network speeds.
it works... it streams videos over thenetwork fine.
oh, this is off the internet :)
actually it's doing 500kb/s
I get throttled at around 250kb... and I'm not behind a firewall on that computer.
I thought I had about 2 mbit..
you suck even more now.
I remember when in first year I got a cable modem... no speed limits, as I was going through the schools pipe. At one sunday morning I think I had the entire schools bandwidth.
I was downloading at 917kb/s... this was back in 1997
slomo has an update inre 4.08 if your interested paul_c
just my 2 cents worth
boots excellenct, nice boot splash, by the way....
but boots to the user configed in the setup...
root is not shown or allowed to log in from the GUI
slomo, which is really a good idea. :)
i have to su - root, from cli, no gui, not that that is bad
but no login selection, aloowing root may put off some, no GUI, you see
i need to config the setup to spin motors, no operation from the default install
not that that's bad either
but for some, cli, may intimidate, changing config files
you only need su access to install stuff anyways
yes, i know, just my $0.02 worth of input ..
hmm... my openBSD box hasn't been turned on in over a month or two... it's actually in my way to my dresser.
A-L-P-H-A: or to write to some config file, and thats the point...
that's part of the installation. :) but yeah.
A-L-P-H-A: but not knowing YOU can login as root, from GUI, i guess, is my point
instead of just being logged in as normal user, get it ?
I like it so that the user has to log in as a user... [created at startup], and then use only su/sudo after being authenticated.
suppose i'm spoiied, options and all, you know ?
* anonimasu yawns
* anonimasu is milling himself a shifter knob tomorrow
anonimasu, cool... take photos. Is the machine yours? convertion? bought? shops?
I have thought of cnc machining retrofit walnut dashes etc for sports cars
but a lot of companies make them already
they sure are expensive
has jobs waiting, aircraft parts :)
* paul_c is getting *very* frustrated.....
paul_c: with... ?
usr trying to install the latest BDI and reporting a bunch of problems
must be time for a break :)
i know, i'm going to now try and config the new install
just saw your email about .ini examples
I have a web page with one
more wouldbe better
les: comments good or bad are welcome
les: i know, i stole an example :)
on my .ini web page I zeroed out the pid gains to prevent folks from loading and running the having a machine with severe palsy
I think that should be done on any servo .ini example
If something is wrong servos run away or go wild... steppers just stop
Just answered Abdul's email as well
seems to be universally broken with the latest tree
must be the time diff: No mail arrived since Jan 12 14:31
* paul_c has seen steppers run away..
Some times I run away paul haha
rats that does not work on mirc
see yall tammra
