[BBF]PUNK is now known as punk84
hi all .. ; )
say what?! =)
no what is quoi??
its what a bir says..
or what in french...
no it doesn't... I got 24 of em here!
what kinda feed you give em..
15 cockatiels and 4 parrots
your a brute for punishment arent you..
my earplugs cut 20db =)
must be a loud place at times..
what sorta parrots,,,
my wife wont let me have another bird ...
how many you have?
i like conures... they are the sweetest things...
i HAD...3 none now... 3 cats and a dog 3 kids and a wife,,, you know,
we have one I can do anything to, even carry around like a golfball
eh, get rid of the wife and the cats =)
my friend had ZIGGY... used to curl up with the dog on the couch ... to watch tv
he loved me cuz i gave him special seeds when he was just a lil one... and he would fly across the street if he heard me callin him.. for treats..
all of ours are clipped
he passed in a fire... but stirred the houshold...
that's actually how we got parrot #3
sorry to hear that.
just fleew in
my next bird will be a raptor..
theres a gyr-peregrine breeder nearby who has some BEAUTIFUL birds
I was working in the back and looked up on the HIGH HIGH power tension lines and saw something yellowish. Looked like a bird, so I had my gf grab one of the parrots and we made him "squawk" the bird came down across the street.
cool. ; )
She must have been in the streets for a few weeks. extremely buff, very tired and dirty. grabbed the ladder, went up the tree ans she didn't even fuss one bit when I put my hand out for here. Actually she could barely move. Took her in
clipped her wings, gave her a bath and then she ate for six hours striaght.
wow... hungry girl... any eggs??
all the cockatiels though *sigh*... it's springtime!
my cocetiels wold lay... but would never hatch em..
even got lesbo walking and humping tiels!
females eat your males???
(got that on video finally)
these birds eat better than you or I do
my female would pick and chew the male RAW ... just before she laid eggs
fresh brocoolli, hard boiled egg, pasta, rice, grapes, apples, orange,
hmmm seems weird behaviour
so did these ....no apperantly its an iron defficiency thats quite common in 'tiels
usually it's calcium
due to the egg laying
deprives their bodies of all calcium
of certian ages/hormone levels..... she ate the feathers for that too... ; )
also can be for lasck of vitamin D with is produced when they sit in the sun.
you have ANY clue how to set a print range in kspread??
have you tried selecting the range, thin print?
yeah... and the rang.. and set range... OR set range... and then set the range...
still struglin with printer drivers for this thing
click A1, then shift click G40 (or whatever), then click on file/print
it might help if i had a clue.... says nothing to print..
no clue, just how it's done in excell
and most other spreadhseets
yeah... in excel im done this in moments... ; )
well its bed time for the kidlets so someones gotta hold them down...
be well... have a bird splash for me.. ; )
damn, missed dmess
well... by like an hour and half.
yep, something about kids and ran out of duct tape =)
SWPadnos is now known as SWP_Away
I hate this. this is annoying. Need to dimple, drill, chamfer, tap, 25 more parts. :/ 100 more operations. ARGH.
That's what a tailstock turret on a lathe is for.
* Jymmm just nods like he understands
What about using the same idea, chuck the part in a collet and use a rotating multiple toolholder?
* Jymmm will one of these days figure out how to use a dead/live center too.
* Phydbleep is aghast..
You never learned to set up a lathe?
Phydbleep "What's a lathe?"
I learned when I was 8? 9?.. Grandad had to make new parts for the old sawmill machinery about once a week.
I've yet to touch a lathe (seriously)
Those are lathes.
Mine is like the third one down. :)
Phydbleep: I've seen lathes, I'd recognize one if I saw it, just never had my hands on one is all
is that your new lathe you picked up the other day?
Hehehe.. They're fun..You can make rollers for Van De Graff generators and coil forms for Tesla coils on one. :)
Jymmm: That's the one I have now, I have to go pick up the Logan tomorrow night.
WEll, being in an apartment has it's limitations.
* Phydbleep has 8"x16" for shop space and needs to relevel it.
Hehehe.. I need to check the bed on the Logan, but if the ways are as clean as they looked the other night, It will go in the shop and I'll try and trade the SB for a mill. :)
Phydbleep you have any links on live/dead centers by chance?
* Phydbleep is really confused about that question..
That should be basic lathe operations..
again, I've NEVER touched a lathe

ah, very cool... TY!!!
the local JC isn't running any summer classes
[06:47:35] <Phydbleep> http://www.jjjtrain.com/vms/
The Virtual Machine Shop (VMS) is a web site dedicated to the perpetuation of machine tool knowledge and training.
[06:49:38] <Jymmm> http://www.jjjtrain.com/vms/bobcad.html
OK.. Does it let you see a list or are you just S.O.L.?
whats all that about?
Well, The url will take you to a copy of the channel log, So don't say anything about your sex life you don't want hte ball&chain to see.
If she doesn't have any issues with my nude photography, I doubt she'll have any issues with that =)
Oh, so she knows about the sheep then?
Actually, she helps me pick out models and/or critiques my work at times.
Like, "No, the legs go in the Wellies with yours, but be sure to wear heavy socks."?
alex_joni: Re: :)
hey fido ;)
like lighting, what feature does this model have that would be exceptional to shoot, what (inf any) theme should I go for, etc.
Jymmm: what are you talking about?
* Phydbleep is just teasing Jymmm about his obsession with the ovine form. :)
* alex_joni is to tired to read
Sheep Mon, SHEEP! :)
06:56:28 <Phydbleep> Well, The url will take you to a copy of the channel log, So don't say anything about your sex life you don't want hte ball&chain to see.
In the crate.. Should be about 1/2 way back to Jymmm by now. :)
06:57:45 <Jymmm> If she doesn't have any issues with my nude photography, I doubt she'll have any issues with that =)
alex_joni and it's just progressed from there...
Downhill.. And gathering speed. :)
* alex_joni wonders if he should just kill the logger
be easier to /kill Phydbleep =)
Not the logger!
is it actually usefull?
alex_joni grep the logger for logger
Yeah, I have a few spots bookmarked fo rreference.
alex_joni: Is there a command to dump the days bookmarks?
Phydbleep: why are you asking me?
* Phydbleep tried 'bookmarks' but got a new one instead.
alex_joni: Thought it was yors?
don't think it does anything but spitting those links
it is.. but I didn't write it
nor do I have the urge to look at the code ;)
does that help you?
I think chump is more likely what you need
didn't use it though
Nope.. i'd eant 'dump' or 'list' if it had it. :)
logger_aj, chump zz
* Phydbleep will just download the days log and grep.
care for a tar.gz?
Phydbleep, tailstock or no... I still have to do it.
I'm left with ~15 more to tap.... and then i'm done.
I'll do them later.
alex_joni: No thanks.. I was just curious.. :)
probably 30 minute before I goto my buyer. heh
A-L-P-H-A: You get eh idea though?
yeah. I know what it's supposed to be for.
it's actually seem quicker to do them in steps... like all parts one step, and then after you finish that step, move to the next.
Turret cuts it to 1 chucking for 4 ops.
yeah, I have a turrent.
for my tailstock.
I just don't have adapters made for it.
* Phydbleep will need to get/build a turret for the lathe.
G'nite Jymmm :)
ahhh... back pain. fun.
I'm old now... maybe I should get a chair for the shop.
ALPHA: how old?
really old ;)
ahh.. me is '80
just wait 12 months... you'll get old too.
I have a few more days till i'm 25..
* Phydbleep is '64.. Back pain is a pani. :)
i just bought an minolta digimage 7i today. 5mp cam.
I think that's why it's called back PAIN
isn't it Dimage?
I'll probably sell it... $300
And what a RIP-OFF!.. I expected from all the propaganda to be fighting 12' radioactive mutant cockroaches by now...
yeah.. that would be fun
anyone have any interest in an SLR?
this dimage 7i.
Single Lens Reflex camera
* alex_joni has interest in SLR's in general
if not, I'll list it tomorrow on ebay.
it's digital ;)
I got some of those
I can't afford film for REAL slrs.
or the processing.
I have a HP 850 (8x optic zoom, 4MP)
We are fighting radioactive mutant cockroaches here, but they're onle about an inch long. :\
Fido: makes the antitank weapons I got useless...
Yeah, And the .50 cal AP rounds just punch more holes in the walls for them to enter. :)
SHIT, A 5MPixel raw image is huge. like 10 megs.
yup .. it is ;)
ALPHA:how does the night video work?
I just got it like 5 hours ago... and 1 of those hours, I was in the pub.
So it will be another hour before he can see to take a picture. :)
make that two hours
Well.. It should be dark by then. :)
I just tried it in my room.
not bad. really neat.
maybe I will keep it.
I got it for dirt cheap.
it's worth a lot more ,)
cheapest place is $669.99 on froogle.com
sounds more like it
this sucks... my favourite sweat shirt is fraying.
ALPHA: you monkey lover
[07:51:22] <alex_joni> http://joecartoon.atomfilms.com/pages/monkeylooker/

gotta wait a bit to load
it's flash though
nope, my adfilter nuked it. :D
I'll just laugh anyways? will that be good enough?

* Phydbleep ended up with part of a search string for some reason.
woke up like 25 minutes ago
[12:07] <anonimasu> woke up like 25 minutes ago
pretty late don't you say?
half theday is over
oh not really
going to go out to the mill and do some work now
I'll be back later
what's up with you?
installed a BDI last night
how does it work?
out of the box
I did a few linux installs til now
but this one worked great
emc runs, kernel is already patched
ppp works ..

* Jymmm looks
alex_joni: how about dev stuff
what dev stuff?
gcc/libs/stuff for compiling emc
an0n: something to waste your time with - http://www.220.ro/storage/ruleta_ruseasca.htm
what were you talking about?
Today at 5:05:05 pm the time will be 05:05:05 05/05/05
05.05.05 comes only once in 100 years and coinciding with 'Thursday(5th Day of the week) comes once in
I want a sat ;)
wanna borrow mine?
there are plenty up there
* alex_joni remebers seeing a project on the web how to build your own
anonimasu what makes you think that you can't get access to a satellite?
alex_joni: oh, the optics to take images costs more then I'll earn in my whole life ;)
how about you getting up there?
[12:11:05] <alex_joni> http://www.bluesat.unsw.edu.au/
anonimasu : Wanna bet? $50 USD via paypal says otherwise
how about a VERY strong buttkick?
Eh, make it $100 USD
Hmmm, think we found a way to shut him up =)
even shoot him up
brb need to mill some.
anonimasu : http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/index.php
anonimasu PAY UP SUCKER!
Jymmm: what does that sattelite cost to launch?
anonimasu it's been in orbit for ~15 years iirc
Launch target: Q2 2006
anonimasu there are more than one
Current launch costs are US$12,000 per kilogram or higher
an0n: how's your weight?
ya know, I think google has done an outstanding job on their maps. improving the interface more and more all the time too.
way too much
it still needs some polishing to it, but they're getting there.
oh, didn't see the 'tour'
[12:26:40] <Jymmm> http://www.google.com/help/maps/tour/
too bad maps are only US
works for me =)
if they add topo, that'll be perfect
alex_joni only teasing.
alex_joni ok, wth are ya?
I got maps for europe

that one didnt come thru, tis ok though
probably too long :D
whats it like living where your at?
hmmm.. feels like... home?
is that a good thing?
is it peacefull? busy? etc
coutnry, city, farm, etc
well.. it's a city (about 3-400k people)
what would be interesting to photograph there?
although we had some floods lately
there are some older buildings
any factories (abandonded)
this region belonged to the austrian-hungarian empire
timisoara (this is the city) is about 700 years old
lots of character to it?
or goin thru "redevelopment" ?
[12:40:54] <Jymmm> http://maps.google.com/maps?q=%221600+Pennsylvania+Ave,Washington+DC%22&spn=0.005568,0.007811&t=k&hl=en

[12:42:19] <alex_joni> http://www.romanianvoice.com/images/orase/timisoara.php
but notice the roof of the whitehouse and the two adjacent bldgs.
whats the weather typically like?
does it snow?
those are some pretty photos, I think I'd go nuts photographing everything.
I try to shoot things with character.
Few months agoa, shot an abandoned mining ghost town
you can find some fotos on my site
[12:47:14] <alex_joni> http://www.timisoara.ro/imagini_din/imagini_din.shtml
some more pics
btw, my site is: www.juve.ro
on your robot, what did you use for the charging circuit?
the solar kit I used does the charging of the battery
built in charger?
it contains the solar panel, the battery, and the inverter
you connect the panel to the inverter
and the inverter takes care of charging the battery
link for the inverter?
lemme see if there is any
does it use PWM for charging the battery?
[12:50:43] <alex_joni> http://dsplabs.utt.ro/~juve/yanor/poze/HPIM0524.JPG
it's not on their webpage anymore
is there a replacement?
[12:52:28] <alex_joni> http://www.wagner-group.com/portal/solar_en_wag,850,365.html
they removed all traces :D
damn... about how much does your weight?
a few kilos
don't really remember
ok, a lil too much for what I wanted it for
I have a spare one :D
but you can find tons of them on the net
whats the raw output of your solar panel full sun?
4-5Amps @ 12 V
ok, mines about 24V @ 1A
but it folds up =)
you're suppose to be able to even drive on it
I need to work
it'd be fun but I feel like lying in my armchair
yeah.. I feel like going home ;)
is paul still around?
let him know that BDI 4.20 really rocks
he will be up in a bit
installed it yesterday.. and it's great
Since I went to bed at 0030 and woke up at 0130 and it's 0600 now, I'm goin back to bed!
hi and bye les, etc al
We both stayed up a little bit late talking about the TP problem and what to do about it
We talked a good bit with Fred too
I went to bed about 0300 and got up 0700
make that 0800 ;)
We feel we must give up on segmentqueue...it's flogging a dead horse
too bad :(
* alex_joni senses hope
we will get a cubic or quintic planner in there
not as ambitious as segmentqueue
but one that works
I plan to go to work on the kbuild stuff today
in a few mins
Trapezoidal planning is just not good enough...that's agreed
TP and TC are badly flawed...that's also agreed
I wonder how the guys who build our robots do it
So let's fix it!
but I don't think I'll find out ;)
Well just a 4 point look ahead cubic would be fine and is typical of controllers these days
good news is
there is already one there!
just in the wrong place
but it runs at the servo rate
it is a sub interpolator and does not do much
it needs to be doing it's thing in the trajectory section
We also are trying to deal with the TP stack underflow
so that's SQ-independent?
that is a bad, bad thing
yes SQ independent
is that listed as a bug on SF?
heh there won't be any need to list it...cause we are fixing it NOW
nice to hear that
how long will paul_c stay there?
in the Blue Ridge Mountains of
well till we get a plan together...then he will go back up to spend time with fred so we can get this stuff implemented in a timely fashion
he does have to fly out of Dulles next thursday
Well i had better get to powering up some industrial stepper units.....must let the smoke out!
Need to ship em out...it pays the bills
* alex_joni goes home to work on emc2
les: how is it going?
trying to compile emc on BDI 4.20
nevyn_ is now known as nevyn
I've been messing with milling a part that comes out off spec..
it comes out too small..
and I have no idea why..
it's way off..
1mm isn't that bad ;)
* alex_joni is used to parts having +/- 2mm deviations :D
wanna see some pictures from where my house is?
[17:07:21] <alex_joni> http://www.cjtimis.ro/inundatii/UIVAR_OTELEC/UIVAR_OTELEC.htm
I got a house in the same village
anyways.. cvs is working now
an0n: on that part that came out too small.. did you use cutter compensation?
what size cutter?
i'll diagnose it tomorrow
is it in a collet (or endmill holder) or chuck?
SWP_Away is now known as SWPadnos
hmmm - have you tried doing a plunge and measuring the hole?
SWPadnos: this is in plastic
so it shouldnt be a problem
runout or a mis-sized cutter wouldn't depend on the material to make bad cuts :)
oh, it's too much to be the collet..
also, (just an idiot check) - make sure you have the right cutter size entered in your CAM program :)
that was the first thing I checked..
OK - just trying to be a better idiot
bdi-4 that is ;)
now the fun part.. emc2 ;)
well - that would be a trick
that's my goal for this week(s) ?
cool - I'll be looking forward to it
heh.. me too :D
(though I'm in less of a hurry now due to the recent PPMC/USC changes in BDI4)
not that I'm in a hurry anyway
well - there appears to be a more-or-less working USC driver in BDI4 now
I committed Paul's changes a couple of days ago
not very closely though
they actually cause the little lights to turn on and stuff :)
seems paul & les & fred are working on tp
that's always a success .. turning lights on / off
I always love that when starting a project
connect a micro to a LED and make it toggle
now that's a beauty
I just need to get the motor spinning
I may pull the GSI from the circuit and see if that helps
who cares that later the micro will be a websever for a distributed app... the led on/off is the best :D
yeah - things you can write without libraries are the best
damn - http://img155.echo.cx/img155/3571/sand6ky.jpg
yeah - cool shots, though
I wonder what color those vehicles will be when it's over :)
I think they will be VERY clean
somebody actually got an ideea from dust storms and invented sand-blasting ;)
today, I was lasering again :)
heh - hi there
funny - I'm just reading about how a lightsaber works :)
(and there you are with a laser)
that thing slices 8mm steel plate like a knife through butter
[18:37:20] <SWPadnos> http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/lightsaber.htm
we did play light sabres with the laser once,
that was *almost* fun
well, it set lots of stuff on fire :)
they never let us play with the lasers in the military
(always too safety conscious)
yeah, it comes down a fibre optic cable, you just hold it in your hand and point it at things you dont like
there I was slicing 8mm steel plate and one part really messed up, cut only 4mm of the way through .. because there was a paper label on top
heh - mightier than the sword and all
(even the paper)
how's the G2kX coming along?
been a bit short on time this week
cool - I was thinking that it would be cool to put the canonical interpreter in it, and actually make a driver for EMC
just waiting for Steve to transplant my PID loop from C to assembler
(or split it up differently, but you get the idea)
wel, it already has that
It's pretty cost competitive with the USC and other step generators
it has the gcode interp as well, tied in to the canon functions
so you could just rip out the gcode interp and talk directly to the canonical machining functions
personally, I dont mind having the gcode interp on there too
Do you know if Mariss still has any of the OEMs available?
6 I think
STEP and other languages are better handled on the PC, I'd bet
OK - I may email him and see if I can get one (if I decide I really have the time to do anything with it)
$150 I think they are
you'll need a Rabbit dev kit too
yeah - those are the OEM versions with no connectors or rabbit, right (but still with analog IO)?
all the source id on SF
cool - I didn't realize that it was put there - what is (are) the project(s) name?
that's a tough one :)
does the FPGA code live on the board, or is it reloaded every power-up?
reloadeed at power up
its not on SF yet
may not be
Ah - that's why I don't see it
the FPGA code is not GPL
everything else is
nope, but the .bin (or whatever) file would be needed
but under a "only for use on Mariss' hardware" license
and "only useful on Mariss' hardware"
there are some cloners on the list
unless I think I can lay out a board and produce it for less than he can (which I can't unless I'm making 1000 of them)
but ... at least one person cloned the slab
that had full schematics published, right?
makes it a bit easier
well, easier yes
but not ethical imho
I'm assuming that the G200x board is multilayer, which can be a bear for cloning
it is .. 4 layers
middle 2 are power
why clone somthing already cheap?
well, people do
I've been thinking of making an I/O board (possibly working with Martin's ISA board - making it PCI) - but I would use my own FPGA file
(too much of a pain to copy the connections)
the hw is cheap, he publishes all the sw info ...
and people rip it off
* alex_joni didn't realize bdi-4 doesn't use rtapi
shrug, it would p1ss me off for sure
that will be a pita to run on 2.6
ooh, that feels better :)
heh - BDI4 is basically EMC1 and EMC2 combined
robin_sz: well people are cheap bastards..
No HAL, but uses NML
SWP: I knew that
but libnml is not realtime
there, no longer on the emc developers list, a weight lifted :)
so it compiles even from emc2 on BDI4-20
RTAI only for BDI4
* anonimasu is going to the kiosk
BDI4 only uses RTAI, I believe (though I don't know if that's just the default, or if support for others has been removed)
well, reading through the "board" email archive was enlightening.
enlightening enough for me to remove myself fromthe project, not that I ever did anyting anyway
or even hey les
Paul is reading some of my robotics books
so he can dance like Devo?
hey robin the "new" product line is now on the pacer site
yeas he can dance like devo now
how is it going?
any luck with SQ?
Yesterday we coded up a short little c program that makes a 3-d spiral
les: looks neat with a bit of vinyl down the side
constant arc length between points
so as it spirals in the points get closer and closer together
until it blows up with a thousand 0.0001" moves, right? :)
emc starts on the outside...and at some point on the spiral chokes up and starts stuttering
SWP: it blows up when the move time is four times the trajectory interval
funny - cubic.c smooths 4 points
yeah...but that is a sub interpolator
4 servo cycles
les: the pacer stuff looks good, simply bang on a few decals, add a decent controller and take the profits
right now about .5 mm point distance with about 15 mm/sec speed is the choke point
15mm? thats .. crawling
Fred, paul, and I have concurred that it is too slow for even proper metal machining
is it fixable?
does the choke point scale up (ie, @30 mm/min, is it 1mm distance)?
good luck ;)
but...there is about a 100-150 microsecond brick wall with any pc of any speed for servo time
might be as High as 200
is paul_c around?
type or skype?
can you ask him how he feels about rtapi ;)
will get him now
type.. this time the connection isn't up for skype (dial-up sux for voice)
skype is only about 3kbits
robin: it does work.. sometimes
but that's troublesome
I *did* enjoy lasering that 8mm plate today, tomorow I'll try 10mm
* robin_sz goes on and on ...
the pierce is exciting ...
it has to blast a hole clean through ...
* robin_sz shuts up
ever done a pierce on a 100mm plate?
yup it is
Ive seen thick plate cuts in books
but it takes a bit, and leaves a whole
(like over 12")
but never in real life
the thickest I've heard of (my dad told me he has seen one) is about 350
as in 3.5m ;)
sounds .. too thick
in some steel factory
with a lance maybe
isn't actually cutting (in the proper way)
more like taking two parts apart
lance of course
but still.. you get two pieces (light enough to pick up by crane)
12 to 24" slab can be torch cut apparently
never seen it though
except in books

* alex_joni goes to bed
does anyone have a clue on the cpu usage difference between the TP and SQ?
* Phydbleep has yet to actually use emc for anything other that to make an obsolete computer look useful...
asdfqwega: You alive?
Phydbleep: well, the computer I run it on is struggling..
anonimasu: 'xload &' from a console?
oh, I can tell it's struggling.
I think it's a emc bug..
Updgrade? More ram? Faster hamster?
even when emc is without any motion it's slow.
Math tutoring for the hamster in there now?
with slow I mean slower then f*ck
10 secs to start "ftp" in another console
Yeah, I thought bdi420 on a P-II 30 was sorta slow as well.
oh this is a pIII 500
How much ram?
when I press esc to abort somthing it takes 20 secs.. to respond..
512mb I think
hiy 'free' and see how much it's hogging?
* anonimasu sighs
* Phydbleep changes the batteries in the keyboard again..
it dosent lag when I run emc, but when I've run a program.. it starts to lag.
even after it's completed..
I should grab & compile a more recent CVS of emc1..
but well, it's very strange
* Phydbleep beats anonimasu with a copy of emc2
Phydbleep: port SQ to emc2 for me ;)
actually I have no reason to run SQ atm.. since I found out why my cam program generates segmented arcs..
I wont promise it will run when I'm done, but I can try. :)
well I had some nice stuff with emc2 changing to relative mode without telling me about it..
that's why I am not running it atm ;)
Settle for SQL? That's already ported. :)
anonimasu: what is PERIOD set to?
phydbleep: I'm here...sorta
SWPadnos is now known as SWP_Away
SWP_Away: very high
asdfqwega: Well then, Wake up and go back to sleep. :)
OK - I have a similar machine (celeron 500, 512M RAM), and it performs just fine with BDI-4
