man I'm such an idiot -- I assumed that an electric outlet and a switch inside the same box were on the same circuit breaker
through luck, I escaped harm
so, doing some wiring?
the dimmer switches that the dpo installed are slowly going bad
replaced one of them
they do wear out faster than normal switches, don't they
that's certainly the pattern
it's the squeal-generating circuit - they're fragile
did you find out it was still live by, uh, touch?
or, was it a little spark and the pop of a circuit breaker?
arent they usually triacs and an RC?
or i think sometimes theres a diac involved because thats all that diacs are good at
renesis: I think it's the mechanical parts that wear out
yeah pots suck
yeah, it's the rheostat
that word is so weird
more than "potentiometer"?
cradek: a little spark between the wire and the switch I was installing
it's the pot that goes bad (ahem)
no lights ;)
HOT POTS ARE AWESOME!! Just ask SWPadnos!
you can get the light to "work" again by jiggling it to a slightly different spot
I don't use a hot pot
I have a pair of computer speakers like that
SWPadnos: Dude.... think with your hollow leg on this one
they're either quiet, scratchy, or LOUD!
hmmm. maybe I should have some dinner
SWPadnos: hot pot for dinner! Good call
brb. soup time
[03:27:00] <JymmmEMC> http://www.fantes.com/mongolian-hot-pot.html
damn, those recipes sound good!
yeah - the last one of those I had was waaaaay too salty
bummer - I ate all the kimchee a couple of nights ago
SWPadnos: Shoulda burned your tounge off and make you sweat like a pig
yeah, a few years ago my wife took me to an asian restaurant here, and they serve hot pots like that
it was very salty, and only somewhat spicy
Some GOOD SHIT if done right!
I haven't been back to that restaurant since, and she's only been there once (when she got a very salty and exceedingly expensive meal)
yeah, I'm sure it is
I may need to travel out there soon - it's time for Palace BBQ :)
there's no good Korean food around here. I probably have to go 200 miles or more to get anything even remotely close
maybe Montreal or Boston has something
SWPadnos: Yeah, we'll have to figure that whole thing out properly, casue still didn't get it "just right" like everyone else around us
SWPadnos: Think I'll get rude, crude, and socially unacceptable next time and get us EACH a set of tools
SWPadnos: Oh, like kababos?
I like kabobs
SWPadnos: I got the place for that
or kebabs, depending
cool by me
I'll have to check in with my cousin who now lives in San Francisco
it's different... you order in the grocery store, and pickup the food around back
not licensed as a restaurant?
they are, just the grill is in back
deli counter up front, all cooked over wood grill
SWPadnos: Adn the cucumber suace is awesome, sold by the lb
hmmm. City of Industry is near LA, right?
SWPadnos: never heard of it
like the greek cucumber sauce you get on gyros
North Woods Inn, Azusa Calif (SoCal) <---- good shit! just the salads and cheese bread
SWPadnos: sorta, yeah
now I'll really get some food
jepler, SWPadnos: some contact spray helps alot with pots like that
depends on whether the problem is wear or dirt
* alex_joni always carries a tube around, you just spray it on the pot (even unmounted around the knob), then wiggle it good for a couple of seconds and they're good as new
you Europeans. always trying to repair things instead of replacing them
looks like this: http://www.toptentrade.bizoo.ro/vanzare/16878/Spray-contact-electric-Carcos
not sure how it's called in proper 'mericun language :D
"electronics lube" or contact cleaner :)
they even might still have it at radio shack
it works great on old radios/speakers
[08:14:43] <alex_joni> http://www.maplin.co.uk/images/full/re70m_new07.jpg
maybe I should try it on my crappy scratchy-volume computer speakers
[08:15:07] <alex_joni> http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=28993&doy=4m12&C=SO&U=strat15
have some spindle motors :)
ok, it's bed time now.
cradek, some one in production with your hobby ebay item 200282170878
hi there. please direct me how to enter the gui under 8.04 LiveCD if it didn't logged in automatically?
what username and pass should be?
installed or running from the LiveCD?
i want to upgrade from dapper because my old PC crashed
if you start from CD there is no password
AFAIK you don't need a password to enter the gui
what do you mean by GUI?
and any username?
if you put the CD in the computer, and start booting from it
it should finish booting, and you have a graphical desktop
you can then select Applications->CNC->emc
that asking for username
it promts to enter username
if it's asking for a username then something is wrong.. (e.g. not booting from the CD)
try your old username
there's no, this is a new HDD
I just asked a while ago if you installed it or you start from CD
then the one you chose during installation
13:55 < Unas> clean installation
please decide which it is..
i mean i want to install but before - to see it
and at first i ran it from CD. didn't install yet
i used on the different machine the previous - dapper
ok.. did you ever get it to run? (e.g. get a desktop presented, or it always asks a password?)
when you start the PC, and it boots from the CD
do you get a window like this: http://arcanecode.files.wordpress.com/2008/04/u804-02.jpg
(without that gray popup)
afair it can be selected from F4 menu. yes, i see it
then i click try Ubuntu and it loads until the username and password promt
hmm.. odd, I've never seen a user prompt while booting form the LiveCD
* JymmmEMC slaps alex_joni for using M$ as the host! For shame for shame for shame!
Unas:did YOU make the cd ?
JymmmEMC: not my pic.. google found it
alex_joni: Uh huh ;)
what do you mean by "make"
Unas: Did you download an ISO file, then burn it to cd
i dowmloaded it like previous version
Unas: the dafault user/pass for the LiveCD are: ubuntu/ubuntu
Unas: Burn at 4x or less
i tried ubuntu/ubuntu )
alex_joni: Well, at least that link said what I've been saying for years regarding burn speed.
it sounds like a bad burn
maybe the safe graphics will work around it, but it's probably a bad burned CD
Unas: MD5 the iso you downloaded if if is correct, burn it again. Elso download the iso again
I had to download twice last time
lather, rinse, repeat.
yes it sounds
i'll try to burn not a cd-rw
Unas:i had the same trouble(not user/pass),has to try 3 download/burn
Unas: CD-R's are only $0.25
i can't wait :(
ma pc crashed yesterday and all the work stopped
Unas:try safe mode
Unas: Fine, then loopback mount the ISO and then setup to PXE boot from it across the network =)
it's impossible ))
Unas: bullshit =)
no, it's possible of course but i can't do it now
Unas: Don't be whining in here, we'll give ya solutions that'll have you dazed and confused for weeks!
Unas: Even 7-11 sells CD-R's, so dont say you can't do something.
i'm not whining. i'm using solutions
Unas: You dont have CD-r and you can't beg/borrow/steal one?
i only meant i cannot install from network
it was just an answer to the joke
Unas: I only said that because you said impossible.
Unas: Who said I was joking?
Unas: You REALLY can do that.
but now i can't - that's all
Unas: you only have one computer?
Unas: Are you MD5 the ISO you have yet?
alex_joni: What camera do you have again?
yeah, that's one of them
[12:25:07] <alex_joni> http://dsplabs.utt.ro/~juve/blog/index.cgi/photography#1
alex_joni: does it allow using a RC ?
alex_joni: no IR ?
dunno, never tried
[12:26:57] <JymmmEMC> http://www.dealextreme.com/search.dx/search.remote%20canon
free shipping to europe? :D
alex_joni: They're in HK. I bought one of these on my last order (even though my camera got stolen) the price was too good.... http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.5483
I want a Canon digital eos body for my lenses
alex_joni: If you place an order with them, get one of these. works great, even under nix... http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.474
definetely bad burning. i tried to run it like an virtual cd - everything works fine.
oh, are there any programs that can CAD->g-code?
a few not many
[13:03:39] <archivist> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?Cam
do we know any .au users?
there was one on the flickr map I think
just had a req to make something in #electronics but more sensible for a local yokel
so sprinkle in some g'day's, bar-bies, and eshelias and be done with it
hmmm. maybe not flickr - that other map thing
SWPadnos: don't forget mate at the end
frappr - right
dont you mate me mate
I see 4 pins mate
and peter hart
I think glenn and jason cox were active on the users list lately
too funny mate
I get a lot of "image unavailable" :)
their software is crappy at best
at least there are dots
and the remote set is the right set :)
there he is
some names for you glenn richmond, jason cox, tim smith, peter hart from down under
names don't do much good by themselves
[16:24:18] <SWPadnos> http://www.frappr.com/emc2/
well they are users on the EMC mailing list so will be findabe
there are 4 people in Australia (you can tell even without the map since those four dots are kinda removed from the other groups)
i only want half a dozen tiny things
i was more intending to just talk to somebody online, send some paypal and get a package a few days later
oh. well you can do that with Americans too :)
Or even English :)
I be australian :P
if you PayPal me some money, I'll send you a package
mmk, rightio then...
* BlueFusion puzzles
I wonder what I should put in it
at least I have ally in stock some in swarf state
<BlueFusion> 15x15x8mm alu block with 12.1mm hole through the large faces
oh, that kind of thing
I figured it would be electronic, considering the other channel name ...
i want like 4-6 of them
lack thereoff in speeling
how akurate do yoo wannem?
i'm not terribly fussed about the dimensions of the block, but the hole needs to be pretty clean. perhaps within 0.2mm
if anything, larger than 12.1, cos the modules i'll be putting into them are kinda crappily made and not always precisely round
o hell, I can do that with a 12.1mm drill bit
i don't have the materials or tools to make them, or i would.
you must have a jobbing machine shop near you
not that i know of
bummer - there are 12.0 and 12.2mm drill bits, no 12.1
12 is going to cut oversize
12.2 is fine
throw some chips in the hole and drill it again with 12.0
what group on frappr ?
search doesnt like 3 chr search!
thats one buggy application in firefox
hmm. this is close: http://www.mcmaster.com/itm/find.ASP?tab=find&context=psrchDtlLink&fasttrack=False&searchstring=8803A933
drill with 15/32, finish with that for a 12.1031mm hole
funny story... I have not been to the local astronomy meetings for a few months. My coworker who is also in the club said I need to come to the meeting because there is a new guy that does motion control. I walk in the room and it is Pete G - the edm guy from the cnc workshop.
He didn't demo his stuff last year but the year before he was tapping a file with a carbon 'tap'
did you know he was from around there?
do you guys watch anthony bourdain?
the name sounds familiar
oh, tv cooking shows? no.
show about eating stuff, not really cooking
does he do beans on cheese on toast?
toast on one side?
toast done in toaster so yes, then under grill with cheese on top, then the beans
must build a cnc cooker
my toaster does both sides :)
heh. our toaster has two slots and a switch for 1/2 slices or 3/4 slices
so if you fill both slots and forget to flip the switch, you get normal toast from one slot and English toast from the other slot :)
er what do you define as English toast!
done on one side, like the Sting song :)
I only know done on two sides and Im Englih
although a cheapskate cafe on the A5 failed on one side
I've often had toast (in England) that was more like dehydrated bread than toasted (ie, nicely browned and warm)
and this was at nice hotels
jepler: yes - he is from the area. I did know that - he had talked about a linux/emc club around here.
this is way too cool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BfzN4D6uys
