SkinnyPuppy34: they're not involute, but rather cycloidal
I went to bed sunday night, and only a few hours later my connection died
monday and today I was away (at a paper mill)
come home and it's been fubared all that time
seems like maybe it is my router - I connected directly to the DLS modem and used pppd to connect
a classic ;-)
jmkasunich: Ah, I've heard some nasty netgear storys depending on model. If you get one of the linksys WRTxxxx you can install OpenWRT on it.
this one has served me quite well for multiple years (I can't even remember when I installed it)
I think it just has old
yeah, mine is there too I think.
I've been thinking about getting one that has wireless capabilities, since my work lappy has wireless
maybe now I have an excuse
jmkasunich: the WRT are wireless with 4port switch
jmkasunich: full linux on your router box =)
With the OpenWRT installed, it's technically a 5 port switch with vlna capabilities
6 if you include the wifi
and if you crack the box open, you can install a serial port
a few ports are handy
the existing one has 4 ports (plus the wan port)
hmm, I wonder if my webserver still works even tho I'm using ppp instead of eth0?
jmkasunich: I'm at work, and am ALWAYS willing to "test" the bandwidth for ya =)
don't test it too hard
I'll be gentle
I've been getting multiple disconnects per day for weeks - I wonder if the router was the cause? (I've been blaming my ISP)
WOW, that almost looks fake http://willepadnos.net/jmkasunich/wood-duck-male-1058m.jpg
I think I'll leave this connection up for a day or so and see what happens
what's yout MTU ?
all my configuration stuff hasn't changed in ages though
if it's 1500, and you are using PPPoEm that could be the issue especially if the ISP made changed on their end.
change it to 1492 (or 1490) and see if that helps
I used pppoeconf to set up the pppoe link that I'm using now, and I think it did set the mtu to 1492
I have no idea what the router was using, I'd have to switch back over to find out
see what value is setup in your router.
which I'm not gonna do today
* jmkasunich is kinda burnt out
long couple of days
Oh I understand that one... I'm on ch4 of DNS&BIND
heh, sounds like loads of fun
I was at a papermill trying to keep drives running
Hey, it's a WHOLE lot lighter reading than my CCNA is.
1400 tons per day
I've re-read ch1 of CCNA three times so far. You have to learn itthe CISCO WAY
[02:49:46] <jmkasunich> http://www.demagcranes-ag.de/images/home/presse/bildarchiv/industriekrane/xl/39281-7.jpg
similar to the place I was at
although the mill I was at was much dirtier
I wonder if they have ever ran out of toilet paper?
heh - you wouldn't want to use the stuff this place makes for that
its the paper that becomes the outer skins of corrugated cardboard
No doubt, but would seem funny
1400 tons a day
actually it doesn't
because they use recycled feedstock
oh, not the pulp from newspapers and such
virgin mills use lots of chemicals to convert trees to pulp, recycle mills use far less stinky stuff
Ever been in a town with a dogfood plant? That stinks
I was at a pulp mill years ago that was nasty - they started with trees and made food grade "pulp" (very thick soft paper)
as you walk into the plant you cross some railroad sidings
car 1: 80,000 lbs chlorine
car 2: 120,000 lbs ammonia
oh fuck me
car 3: 30,000 gallons sulfuric acid
at least put some space between em
they give you a pocket size respirator during your safety training
"if you hear a siren, put this over your head and get outdoors and upwind NOW"
Kind of like get under your desk if the atomic bomb drops
If you hear a siren, place your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye
So, now you can't breath, and your skin is starting to get eaten away... lovely.
they had a thing at the exit of the parking lot...
pipes up both sides and across the top, and a weight operated valve
you drive your car thru it and it washes it down
to wash off the acid mist that settles on your car in the parking lot
that was about 15 years ago, and that mill was ancient then
the one I was at today was only built about 15 years ago

uhm.. shouldn't we have robots doing that kind of stuff? come on now
Looked like a suicide mission to me
cradek: installed fine last night after getting sources.list set up properly.
Haven't configured it or attached it to the mill yet though... something for another day.

ds2: stay off the waterbed next time
Here's a CNC controlled gatling gun !
[03:42:07] <SkinnyPuppy34> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpxvI7Sem7c
i wonder if anyone has a manual swiss lathe
mazak integrex, anyone?
[04:49:55] <toastydeath> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZcFMjLmjZc
if god had a lathe, it would be an Integrex.
Hey toast, that is pretty cool.
anybody happen to know of a CAD package that runs on linux? I'm never installing XP again so i'd be kind of nice to already have my other PC set up to do everything.
Ubuntu 6.10, but I may move to 7.10 later.
Pro/E has a cam component to it
if you are looking for the full shebang
Anyone else making chips tonight?
potato, silicon, or ? =)
and i'm eating chocolate chips :)
they all sound tasty
i made some chips earlier
mild steel plate
cutting out an 11" flange cover
bolt holes, etc
tuffak polycarbonate motor mounts
ON A POORLY LIT HAAS VF-0
WITH MY BARE HANDS AND TEETH
i think something's dicked on that machine's spindle
it sits at 45% load with the spindle just idling
the tool release sounds like a gunshot and the machine shakes
Got a bucket of 6061 chips, what should I clean this with b4 putting in a crucible? TSP?
and one time, the spindle stalled completely for no damn reason in a light cut
eating chocolate chips i mean. i do have a crappy drill press and bandsaw to make use of
Do you have to clean it?
you dont have to clean it
Not sure thought I'd ask
might want to pack it into nice sized bricks first though
Anyone else here have a coal forge?
coal is nasty
or do you use coke and just call it coal?
yeah it is that. Got a blacksmith friend that uses it
some coke other is low grade coal
i have a cast iron coal stove
about now would be a good time to finish it
but i'm lazy so i'll just be cold all winter i guess
keep busy you'll stay warm
yeah schlepping around freezing chunks of aluminum keeps you warm..
Pro/E isn't going to work, I'd have tp pay for it.
Rabbitbunny: welcome to the club
yeah we have so many cold iron things in the bs shop it won't get warm with the outside in midday
I already have AutoDesk on a very nice payment plan...
Back to the mill ...
wow.. watch this around 1:00 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLC25KbCTxs
i'd call that high speed machining for sure
says they're down for maint.
that's just what they want you to believe!
