Hey how is newegg for buying/returning/exchanging?
never had to return/exchange anything I purchased at newegg
I got a case with a bad psu in it from them. they wouldn't replace just the psu, and I didn't care to pay for shipping the whole case back to them, so I said "fuck it".
jepler: they wouldn't pay for return shipping?
* jepler tries to remember
I'm not sure now
maybe I'm mistaken about tht
at the point that I wanted to do the rma, I had all the components in the case (including a borrowed psu) and didn't want to take it all out to return it
it's been two years, gimme a break :-P
I never said anything! LOL
I was jsut curious is all =)
I NEVER buy anything amil order (except ebay), but they even beat ebay price on a NAS box right now.
well just for you I looked back into my old e-mail. It doesn't look like shipping was the issue, just my wanting to only return part of the item
The whole it's already build damnit and I'm not gonna do this all over agian over a damn $40 PS
* BigJohnT goes to process some deer meat
in principle I could have tried the manufacturer for a psu replacement but I was too lazy to and I imagine the warranty is expired by now
talk to you guys later
see you bi

Ok, it's not the fastest thing in the world when it rebuilds, but it's all in a single tiny cube, and there are hacks to get sshd on it
5 drives, RAID6
* jepler wonders why it has 5 drive bays and 5 SATA II c onnectors but only 4 HDD power and activvity LEDs
oh well, some things man was not meant to know
where you see that?
jepler: Oh, those are just power, and system status. Each drive on the left side has two leds
JymmmEMC: in the specifications tab
so it's 14 LEDS + the 1x16 LCD display
LEDs: ... "4 x HDD power" ...
I had one of these in my hands for a couple of days
took the whole thing apart
made 4+1 hot spare then yanked a drive =) Tossed the drive back in and it started rebuilding the RAID
so the description is wrong and there are 5 HDD power LEDs?
seems to me that would make sense for a 5-drive raid enclosure

oh looks like you can install ssh on it: http://www.onbeat.dk/thecus/index.php/N5200_Module:_SSHD
Yep, they have all kinds of module add-ons
(nowadays I prefer sshfs for remote filesystem access instead of nfs)
it has iSCSI =)
that won't help me when I'm on wifi
I think it accepts a wifi USB stick too
who knows hou to set a usb port to full power in order to charge a blackberry device??
dmess: you install the BB drivers
there are no linux drivers
a few progect in the works .. but all wip

yhat what we always called my sons as they grew up pullin' bonehead moves
it just grew on me... ;)
whats up people...
my 14 yr old son just recieved his Ubuntu 8.10 cd from the Netherlands..... he wanted the original... go figure
might be a collectors item someday....
they do make good coasters
i have too many of those... i started buying cdrw's when they were thousands of dollar's
it'll be in the boys album im sure
the fact that my IP printer may work with his machine.. is a bonus
shouldn't be a problem
my 6.XX sees it but it just dont come out
i run Slackware 1.1 here, i love it....
unds up lookin paused
i wanna run a lathe on here too so EMC2 is a necessity
i have emc on 2 other machines
and this box has been stble for quite some time other than MY 6 month brainfart
im not the biggest on compiling stuff
i have a debian etch box but the recent updates borked it royally....
im an APT programmer.../ cam programmer
have you tried qcad and cam expert???
i use a text editor to write gcode.....
have you see VAPT??
its made by ribbonsoft not open source....
i am a component level electronic tech, i just happen to work exclusively on edm
use a text editor to program a 5 axis machine over 3-d geometry
i repair, modify, update most of the electronics on these machines
wire or sink??
i usually cut squares and circles!!!!
hole poppers also
so have i
i only write simple stuff to test with....
mits, sodick, japax, charmilles, fanuc, brother, chmer, handsvedt, you name it
i subcontract for EDM Network
i'm actually a radar tech, but i fell into this 15 years ago by accident, i found no one in the business doing board level repair on these machines....
its all "stop and swap"
at 2-5k per board it gets expensive...
we had quite a few chrer at 1 place... i was in
i successfully did an Andrew wire edm with emc2 about 3 years ago
really... and pwm??
chmer = haas of edm
boatloads o atmel avr's in them....
but sunk us a few million worth of molds
which model? (i'll tell you what went wrong with them!!!)
i never said they werea bad machine...
we had a fe.. i dont remember the full CNC was a sweet machine the 6 months it worked.. then went down for 1-2 months... then someone would get it running again
work for 6-10 mo and then loos its 486 brain again
pwm77 ???? what is that
spark power with emc...
the andrew has a manual generator
and what regulated or bounced it?
like any other wire edm, the gap voltage
ar there any way to program FPGA to be Bus Controller
i know mesa did this already
first define what bus!
some says...pci did not do realtime, but as far as i know, mesa connected to PCI-bus ...
it has something to do with 'quartus II' and'xillinx' stuff
google the FPGA makers for examples
i already do it, but... kind of im in the forrest
just perhaps any one would have 'some' clue on it... me to start with
im droping to the juggle of google
thnx in advance ...in case im forgoting this words
(every thing all of u, says, is important to me)
you have to decide what you are doing/trying do do, in order to search sensibly (I dont know what you are doing)
* alex_joni agrees
:) im trying to revive ISA-BUS era on modern-easy-tofind-pc-already-have-one
to have realtime data aquire
without to much mesa-card ...cos i already depent on mesa
mesa mean= long term delivery package
:) just thats
ok, imagine medical equipment
has automatic machinary
if medical equipment fails, the suppliers get sued
no pain no game
cnc fail, blow up the whole factory, we also get sue
As some of you maybe aware a purchased an old Beaver mill recently. On further inspection I have noticed there is a hair line crack along the rear t-slot about 2.5 to 3 inches long :-( My concern is that it will break if I need to clamp in that area. What can be done to fix an issue such as this. I know it's difficult to advise without viewing the table but any advice would be greatly appreciated.
could it be able weld?...
have to go
there are cast iron repair people around, else get money back
from people who stitch to proper cast iron welders
and two methods of welding, stick with nickel rods (less good), and gas with item red hot (best) but that will require refinishing slides
Ive seen the result of the gas welded and its good
not cheap either
cheaper to get another milling machine
archivist: Sorry i just got dragged away for a moment.
archivist: 'cheaper to get another milling machine' Don't say that ;-)
else mill chunk out, make fitted chunk
was the price right because of the crack or is it of merchantable quality
That could be an option but I am not too sure if I have enough surface to be able to get a good fixture. The table also has a small number dings not surprising due to it's age 55+ Years. I was thinking of using some metal putty to clean them up.
sound like its had a hard life
I never notciced the crack until I had purchased it and acepted delivery.
Other than the above the machine is in good condition overall. Spindle runs true and quiet and the ways are in good order.
other option, live with errors
archivist: Your probably right. the machine is to be used for hobby and recreation so it should have an easy life in it's retirement :-)

jepler: does this work for you? git-clone git://git.unpy.net/offs.git
i get git.unpy.net[0: 220.127.116.11]: errno=Connection refused
looks like it's my fault
git-daemon didn't restart with the system
jepler: I thought that was SOP ?
I'll have it sorted out in a few minutes
jepler: "Are ya done yet?

* jymm hands jepler a brewski
jymm make mine an ale
fenn: try it now
* archivist fancies two fried eggs, chips and beans
archivist: mmmm sign me up
(can I have a beer with it too?)
archivist: I don't think it is 'making'
fenn: and thanks for letting me know about the problem
jepler: works now, thanks for fixing :)

skunkworks, version 17?
jymm I prefer a Hefiweisen...
or a Kolsch or a Witbier
BigJohnT: sounds more like something I'd toss on the bbq
ohh hmm. I should go support my local coffee shop
SWPadnos: as long as it's not StarSucks
SWPadnos: Yeah, on every corner
their building is about to be bought and torn down by CVS, since we obviously need a new giant pharmacy more than a coffee shop
... and across the street from each other too
(and other local businesses)
SWPadnos: ah, so no walmart wanted huh?
not here. there are only 4 in the county, and they're all less than 5 years old (maybe <3)
I'd wish they'ld build a Super WalMart near me
we have a WalMart a few miles away, plus two large chain pharmacies, plus a large pharmacy in every large grocery store (and some small ones) - maybe 12 or so within 3 miles
oh well. time to donate a little moolah to the soon-to-be-ex proprietors. bbl
skunkworks_ is your running yet?
good night all
see ya seb
skunkworks_ seems to have built and run its tests here
it actually ended the make finally
