skunkworks, hey, how are you? not so well, very busy with work, just bought this: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120169721743
for a backup solution im making
no more tape swapping ;)
wouldn't mind it for myself actually, would be nice for archiving
have a 8x320gb raid5, but that is noisy and hot
our biggest server here is only .5TB
but it is on the full side.
the company i work for sell storage solutions, i will be making a linux based backup host for them
did you catch this link on the emc mailing list? http://www.compumotor.com/catalog_eng_ref.htm
some nice stuff there

long time no see
I still have your domain ready for you, martinlundstrom.com
wait it was mlundstrom.com :)
does anyone have a lead on big transfomers?
I'm looking for 4kva, 220v single phase primary, 72v secondary
I use 240/480 to 120/140 for something like this. By connecting 240 to the 480 taps I can get ~60 AC out on the 120 tap.
cradek: Do you mind having it made?
but you need a transformer with double the kva rating
the current limits on the primary wires will be the limiting factor
err - on the secondsry wires
<-- needs more coffee
cradek: If you don't mind having it made, then Yes, I do have a place for you.
JymmmEMC: not if the price is halfway sane
cradek: no, it's realistic and can be qty 1
rayh: thanks, I'll keep that idea in mind (I bet 8kva would be a huge transformer!)
cradek: they will help in the design phase too, very down home
SWPadnos: you said once that you used ubuntu server, why ubuntu as opposed to debian?
that was all
but why damnit!
actually, I have Ubuntu on several workstations, and I figured it might save some effort to have them based on the same distro
I can set up a repository mirror here, for instance
and I only need one
hmm, they have toroid up to 10kva
it's so simple (one primary, one secondary) I wonder if that would be the way to do it
SWPadnos: anything other than workstation support (so to speak)?
<-- needs more coffee
cradek: They dont charge extra for custom design work.
cradek: I was having made a 4 tap secondary and very reasonable if I could wait till the end of their current workorders were complete, apx 10 days or so
thanks, I will definitely call them.
cradek: Now, if you needed special certifications... UL, medical, etc of course the custom would go up.

OMG!!! Ubunto 7.10 ---> While previous Ubuntu releases only supported read access to Windows (NTFS) partitions, Gutsy Gibbon now fully supports reading and writing to them, by integrating the NTFS-3g project. This significantly eases file and document sharing with Windows.
gutsy does have some issues http://www.electronicsam.com/images/KandT/GLXGEARS.png
it doesn't have those issues on my laptop
I was told to disable compiz - as it is very buggy
I have not tried it yet.
(the desktop effects if I understand it right)
I didn't disable it, and I can run glxgears without those issues
really? I tried it on 2 different computers with the same issues.
I did have an "interesting" effect one time though - a jelly-window kept being jelly-like after I had released it :)
both ATI video though, right?
was there updates within the last few days?
no - one was intel - one was ati
this is from a week ago - the beta (not even the RC)
mine is nvidia restricted
also, I don't know that turning desktop effects off actually disables compiz
SWPadnos: looks like setting 'visual effects' to none fixes it.
I did have a problem where I couldn't set visual effects to "custom"
or at least the setting didn't take when I checked that option
this is the visual effect tab of the appearence control panel
3 options, right? "none", "default", "custom" or similar?
it has 3 options none, normal and extra
hmmm. maybe I should update ;)
it defaults to normal on a fresh install
right. that's close to what I'm trying to remember
too much lds in collage?
no, I'm not religious
(it was a quote from one of the startrek movies)
Star Trek 4, I think
where they go back in time - I think so
shave the wales
and Spock tries to fit in by saying "the hell" every other word
skotty tries to talk to a mac
yep. one of the good ones (the even numbers)
I actally liked the next generation one where they go back in time and see the first warp drive built/flown
8, I think
then 9 was eh
and 10 was pretty good (liek a long episode, but still good)
the one with the Romulan Picard clone
ah - I don't like unhappy endings though... (data getting blown up) I like disney endings.
but it was a good movie
then go watch bambi
oh wait, there's death in that one also (or so I hear)
I don't know if I have seen that one.. But yes I think the mother dies.
hence why I have not seen it..
hmmm. now what was that stupid movie?
I used to work in a theater, so I got (had) to see a lot of bad movies (I was the guy who spooled the reels onto the platter when new movies came in)
there were a bunch of stinkers, but in one of them, there's some love triangle, and at the end, the two guys get into a shooting match and - you guessed it - they manage to kill each other
so there's the sad lady, with two dead boyfriends. boo hoo
fade to black, credits roll
cradek: this plus a 220/110 transformer http://cgi.ebay.com/JEFFERSON-BUCKBOOST-TRANSFORMER-216-1271-120-240-16-32_W0QQitemZ200163328960QQihZ010QQcategoryZ42881QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
it was so bad and predictable that about 1/2 hour before the end, I said to my friend
"watch, they'll end up killing each other, and she'll be left with no-one"
he almost choked on his soda when it happened
60v+ the boost on the primary..
my father is good at predicting movies endings.
movies in the last 10-20 years have been very bad regarding predictability
and if they say it's "wildly funny and unpredictable", you just change your predictions to the opposite, and then you're still right
I would have to say - 6th sence took me by supprise.
except in rare cases
yes, that was a good one
fight club was good also
if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend "12 Monkeys" (though there is death in that one, so be prepared ;) )
another one (just looking at the DVD collection here) -
seven was good
"Instinct", with Anthony Hopkins and Cuba Gooding Jr
hmm not seen that one
Guest356 is now known as skunkworks_
oops - only 2kva
it's pretty amazing how much compiz slows down 3D apps
glxgears with desktop effects on does about 8150 FPS, with effects off it's 12550
heh - but it seemed like a good idea at the time..
but you don't get the problem either way?
so both before and after updating, I didn't have the problem
must be somewhat related to hardware
that has a lot of primary taps.
but... the wrong way
if I did the math right - it only gets you 61.1v
with the 432 tap
have you measured your 220v? is it 220?

Question about paraports, from the users manual " 1 HAL cannot automatically determine if the “x” mode bidirectional pins are actually open collectors (OC). If they are not,they cannot be used as inputs, and attempting to drive them LOW from an external source can damage the hardware." Is this applicable to newer pc's or a problem on older hardware?
skunkworks_: it's right at 240 today
good night all
cradek: that would be 66.6v then..
= 93 dc
432/120 = 3.6:1 240/3.6=66.67v
but 170 lb!!
it is the range of kva you will need :)
I bet the one in there weighs about 40
steves_logging had some toroids at fest that were probably for geckos (so maybe they're about 100v) - I should ask him what he has
I don't know if you want to take that bet..
ok maybe not... but I think 3 phase can be a LOT less iron than 1 phase
I use a welder for transorming..
"I guess wishing is not a valid method for repairing machinery." hahaha
cradek: that and a buck/boost transformer... ;)
I'm hoping for something that will fit where the original is - so I would prefer to not have two of them
picky picky picky.. ;)
If you have someone make you a toroidal - wouldn't it be better to do the 144vct?
to rectify and smooth out.
I think the waveform is the same, but you only get half the power when you rectify to a center-tap
right, what SWP says, the transformer has to be twice as big
also, that may only be good for +/- supplies
and I think it only saves you two diodes
(no other benefit)
except if you're using an 80 tube to regulate it, then it really helps :-)
it is a benefit for 3-phase, but not for single phase
that is what I was trying to extrapilate..
yay! I have the DACs working now!
strangely, at ~167 KHz - very close to the ADC scan rate of 165 KHz
any major revisions to your circuit?
nope, this has all been FPGA issues
I think ;0
I had copy/paste errors on 12 of the 36 tantalum caps, so they had to be reversed. there were two ICs that had to be rotated 180 degrees (same stupid VSS versus VDD thing)
last night I found out that for the last 3 days, I've been chasing a problem that was caused by the Xilinx tools not doing incremental compiles correctly
especially when I've been up until 3AM to 7AM chasing the problem :(
Gecko common connects to the shield ground on breakout board correct?
Sorry for the noob questions just making sure I don't let the smoke out.
there are multiple commons on a gecko, which one are you talking about?
also, do you have the step/dir inputs set for common +5V or common ground? (if that's available on the 203V)
g203 common aside the step/dir
The pinksheet they came with only says "Common connect terminal to controller ground output."
you should have a ground wire, which may be connected on the BOB to the shield, but you shouldn't be using the shield as a current-carrying conductor

SWPadnos: A groundwire back to computer chassis ground is what I would need yes?
then you're depreciated instead!
* fenn wonders what that's supposed to mean
SkinnyPuppy34, the ground goes to whatever is driving the step/dir bits
unfortunately, I don't have time to think about it much at the moment. hopefully ssomeone else can jump in to help you out.
Thats cool, I think i got it. Just wiring the breakout board as per the standard_pinout.hal xyza. Just cautious being my first system
did anyone see awallin around
anonimasu; know of a place in sweden that's got cheap V-belt wheels and belts?
oh, have they got them? sweet
btw, do you know anything about upper RPM limits for v-belts?
and/or perifrial speed limits
pretty fast I guess..
im not sure
[21:02:45] <anonimasu> http://www.jula.se/e-Sales/esa/default.jsp
yeah, found both
nice and cheap
I'd use toothed belts..
as you can get specs for them ;)
but they are much more expensive
yeah, for my purposes lifespan doesn't really matter
thanks for the tip :)
I saw your post on HAD
but he just left
