Any HAL gurus about?
if any of the emc crew from galesburg wanna see Johnny Olson, a Khaen player, he's at Wat Lao Buddharam in hampshire illinois tonight. i'm running in from detroit to see him.
I am getting this error during load of EMC2: test2.hal:134: pin 'spindle-phase-A' does not exist
BUT...here is line 133: newsig spindle-phase-A bit
this is 134: net spindle-phase-A => encoder.0.phase-A
So, I can't tell why halcmd is complaining...anyone have clues?
wtf do i do with like 1/2" of sawdust in an electronics cab?
most of it is maybe 18" from the electronics racks
boss was like, compressed air it
im like, yeah great blow the dust into the equipment
but they have a shopvac
theres no way a shopvac at that range will ESD the controller circuits, yeah?
i guess i could dustpan it out
any time you move air - there is a posibillity of esd
yeah thats why i dont wanna blow the dust off the gear
its mostly ok, the cab was open a crack and a bunch fell into the edge opposite the electronics
was like that when i got there, i found the key and locked it so it shouldnt get worse
hmm, ill scoop it out with a dustpan i guess and just lock it
Use a big low inductance ground strap from the board (anywhere) to honest to goodness EARTH ground, and have at it with the shop vac.
I think there is just as much potential for ESD brushing something against something else. Friction can create change in potential.
* AzRockCrawler shrugs
a resistor between a cmos and that ground strap is enough to blow it out
None here, try [middle of nowhere in some barn]
this chan is actually about open Command and Conquer platform development
okay no rly
i dunno what this chan is about

<- the circuit board milled for my function generator project (awesome huge pics if you click to zoom in)
AzRockCrawler: spindle-phase-A is a signal, not a pin
net needs two pins to connect together, and a name for the connection
you only gave it one pin
er, i think
hm. works here. dunno what's wrong with yours. maybe put the hal files up on pastebin.ca?
ok.. if anyone is still awake out there... can i still use the paralell port for different things when i don't have my machine plugged in? i read that emc changes something with the port but i can't find it now..
"cat /proc/ioports" returns no parallel port?
sri fenn, was away
Yes, figured that all out -- thanks.
Works too BTW.
chr0ni1c: what "lsmod | grep "par" " say ?
problem was me. Did not account for the opto-isolated ground on the input side. Made grounds common, got sig to PC, and EMC picked up the counts easily.
chr0n1c: what "lsmod | grep "par" " say ?
parport 44428 2 ppdev,lp
so one of those is my lpt1?
but ppdev could be
what number of lpt do you have ?
lol, i used to be a dos/win expert...
i know it's set @ 0x378
and it works in win for this lcd...
i know it works, i just can't find it!
do you have lpt on addon card ?
linux is way more laid out and expansive than win as far as options and ways to do things.. i get lost
it's the built in motherboard
built into the mobo lpt port
* chr0n1c googles
* chr0n1c tries that
anyone ever made an air dryer from an air conditioner coil and fan?
for an air compressor?
no but it sounds like a 'fun' project :)
I've seen a few examples where guys used an oil cooler then the thought came to me why not use an air conditioner coil and fan
how would you seal around the coils at 90 psi?
i'm picturing some kind of welded box
silver solder just like when you do ac tubing
run the air through the inside of the coils
oh, just solder another tube parallel to the tubing?
no, use a scrap coil and fan from a broken ac unit
is this air that's under pressure or ambient pressure?
then how do you contain it?
instead of freon going through the coil my compressed air will before it gets to the tank
then what cools the tubing?
the small fan that came with the ac unit
is there any freon in the system at all?
no, just using the condenser coil
so this is more like an intercooler than a proper refrigeration dryer
however you now have me thinking about using a working window unit as a refrigeration dryer...
i think you'd have to cycle it like an automatic defrost freezer
but it would pull in a lot more water than a freezer
you have to have an auto dump valve for the condensate tank
cause old farts like me can't remember to dump it
oil coolers have bigger pipes than air conditioner coils
oh nevermind, i'm thinking of the condenser coil
* fenn looks
I know this might be offtopic, but I'm looking for open-source plans for a simple PCB milling machine
I've seen you somewhere else :P
anonimasu, me too
anonimasu, I frequent #archlinux, #ruby, #avr, #electronics...
sorry I dont know of any opensource plans
