I had to increase the Cache-Limit , update, get the pkg, remove the huge repository from list, reduce the cache, re-update (phew! all for a little java app )
ahh i just discovered how to make the irc window transparent.. yay
now i can see my coolio wallpaper
hey i guess i am emailing that person in cali from the mailing list a cd... my good deed for the week.
soo you folks might be helping him out a lot soon...
fun stuff.. i know, try to contain the excitement!
thanks for sending him a disc
no prob... i figure it's a way for me to contribute...
you guys have done some awesome work... i'd like to help people find it
it's unusual that someone can't get a disc made locally somehow, but it's impossible to guess what his situation is
were you one of the guys who wanted to work with hot wire cutting?
me? no, it is a topic i would like to learn more about though in the future
cradek: I was, but no immediate need
cradek: not a top priority I mean.
i just peeked in on the on-disk.com website. it looks like they are a reasonably priced serrvice
$3.99 per disc with no label, as long as they don't have to do much work
yeah it seems like a nice service
have you given thought to asking them to list emc2/ubuntu on the site as a possible burn-able disk image?
that is an interesting idea
I bet they would list any distro after getting a few requests for it
seems like that would be the smart way to decide what to list
i've been tempted to start something like that service for a long time...
i even made a budget up for the company including buying a mass duplicator
but.. i never did it
sure seems easy to start. as your needs go up, buy better equipment
[05:13:31] <chr0n1c> http://on-disk.com/portal/index.php?wiki=Getting_Started
<-- possible signup page
** i would suggest adding $1 to the cost of the actual service to donate to emc2 ;)
or even $0.50
(i haven't read the signup so i don't know how that would work)
we're not at all set up for donations like that
i read somewhere there was a corp of some sort?
an elected board, no corporation
cradek: were you thinking of foam module?
I added support for more linear axes U,V,W
just wondered if anyone was waiting for that specifically
cradek: ah, and temperature control?
has nothing to do with temperature control...
hey speaking of that....
cradek: Ok, I'll chat with you later on the details of the UVW
i was wanting to build a lexan bender/heat bar. i can basically just attach ac to either end of a long spring and stretch it on a insulating material right? then set that under my lexan whre i want it to bend...
chr0n1c: I wouldn't
and a transformer for isolation
chr0n1c: the ones I've seen have something that looks like the heating element from an oven
ok well i got the idea from this potpouri pot that broke... it's merely a spring around a ceramic disc with ac and an led in series
Yes, that is coiled NiChrome wire
(I've used the oven to do it)
It is NOT a spring
oven is a great idea
i know when i try to heat it with my torch to bend it bubbles
but i used a bar once that was tubing with the heater assembly inside
yeah and you can't get a straight line
You need good temerature control
oven works ok in a pinch
then you laid your lexan on top of the bar and waited
There are specific strip heaters for fabricting plastics.
... today i tried the potpourii heater, it gets.. ALMOST hot enough
man how do you spell that word...
i know i spelled it wrong
* chr0n1c whips out the dictionary
hey that's a pretty nice file
chr0n1c: But THIS is what you were specifically after... http://www.cyro.com/Internet/SiteContent.nsf/WebMSDSs/415A8F19C38ED67285256ADF00496EA8/$File/1319-7F+line+bending+TB.pdf?OpenElement
hey they used my idea in that pdf
i suggested we mill a groove at the bend of some of our machine guards that we were making to prevent bulging...
and it's in that pdf
that pdf is (c) 2001
it was around then when i came up with that idea
lol, i'm not saying they stole my idea or anything
but i am saying.. "great minds think alike"
I do a lot of plastic fab, but I don't have enough area to do it on a regular basis.
so anyways... we were using a heating bar to bend up some guards for a press we built...
1 car garage
i'm gonna build me a heated plastic bending brake i think
hmm one of the materials for building the bender is in dayton ohio from that last pdf link
right next door almost
I have a commercisl strip heater at home, if you wait a few (years) I'll scan it on
wonder if they are still around
When you have to fit a square part into a square hole, is there a formula for overlapping the cutter's radius so you cna fit the part?
the formula is: subtract .0005
*from the i.d.
I'm talking mickey mouse ears here.
Let's say the square piece to insert is 1.90". So I have to make a 2" square, and if I'm using a 1/8" diameter cutter, the radius in the corners of the square will be, 1/8". Now, I have to "square" the corners, by (more or less) drilling holes in each of the four corners, but how to I calculate the minimum overlay?
is this a trick question?
jsut use a saw
or a file
or a laser
i bet there is a formula
* chr0n1c has no clue really
chr0n1c: Fine, let me borrow a laser from you.
chr0n1c: and a shark too
...fresh out of sharks here.
I just woke up
and I ended up coding
do you code with caffiene?
I havent had any yet.. no
