skunkworks: did you spot any problems immediately after finishing the first face?
no - everything went smooth.
I did screw up one when I went to to the 2nd side.. (I must have entered the touchoff wrong)
Now I tripple check..
Fun project with a microcontroller and a servo with stepper style input -> http://www.nerdkits.com/videos/servosquirter/
alex_joni: not much, well the boat is coming along nicely
alex_joni: hope to finish this spring (or summer)
From wikipedia: "Lard is also useful as a cutting fluid in machining.", hmm a machineshop that smells like bacon
bacon makes everything better
now, if lard helps cutting aluminium, it's perfect
Just this once .. here's the log: http://www.linuxcnc.org/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emc/2008-12-26.txt
skunkworks: The PCB of last night, did you mill that out, or etched it
looks great, :p

The ultimate keyboard.
anyone have a spindle encoder hooked up to a 5i20?
I know cradek has on his hnc, but I don't think he's around
what's an hnc?
this shows a spindle setup, but I have some specific concerns with it:http://www.mattshaver.com/kc6/kc6.hal
I'm interested in a mill
first, I think there is a direct velocity output, so no need to involve a ddt
second, 0.015 is not a correct conversion from rps to rpm; it should be 0.01667 (depending how many "6" you care to type)
pi is 3 in maryland
looks like it sets up an analog speed output too
that's required for threading, correct?
hostmot2 will do steppers as well as servo?
for rigid tapping you need direction control and position feedback
yes, hostmot2 does steppers
and both at once
there are a couple precompiled firmware's
[21:07:04] <alex_joni> http://cvs.linuxcnc.org/cvs/emc2/src/hal/drivers/mesa-hostmot2/firmware/
look there for your card
I was trying to help kimk the other night, but I guess this has all been changed since I looked at it last
eric_u: it's been pretty wild lately
it seems to settle down now
a firmware called SVST8_8S.BIT does 4 x servo and 4 x steppers
err.. 8x ;)
seems like the integrators manual still describes hostmot4
depends which one ;)
is there one in cvs?
[21:19:16] <alex_joni> http://linuxcnc.org/docview/devel/html/
interestingly, pci_hm2 is not there
that would make all the differenc

burning my last cd with 8.04, hope it works
well if it works, it's surely the last one ;)
my wife asked me if I needed anything at the store, I told her to get some cd-r
since my stepmother is with her, I may actually get some
that reminds me, I need CD-Rs too
maybe eric_u will have some spares
hm cd-rs are getting "rare": there are about 1/3 as many CR-R SKUs at newegg as DVD recordables (26 vs 79)
hmm.. that sounds like trouble :)
pata is endangered too
well, that was a singularly unsatisfying experience
tried to install ubuntu on my son's new computer, there is a blank partition, but ubuntu wanted to resize an ntfs partition instead
blank as in unallocated or unformatted?
it probably picks up unallocated space
I created a ntfs partition but didn't format it
no, it picked out the biggest partition
but an existing partition which isn't formatted might be some partition type it doesn't know about
no changes allowed
it only gave one choice
so I somehow think it's sane what it did :)
you can select manual partition, and set it up any way you want
well, I looked at their partition choices and couldn't figure out what they were calling a root partition and gave up
use partitioning software you're familiar with and delete the unformatted partition, then retry the ubuntu installer?
I was just surprised that the installer was brain-dead, I have no idea why they don't let you pick partitions without going full manual
because people usually don't know what they are doing
I understand that, but some of us know what we are doing but don't feel like doing a manual partition
I wanna choose sda2 and click ok
know what we are doing != don't feel like doing a manual partition
I usually let the installer pick my partition sizes, especially when they are going to rename things
if they had a choice that said / I'd know I wanted to pick that one
good night all
* JymmmEMC trying to find leak in washing machine.... no evidence found that it's on the transmission
is it leaking oil or water?
big puddle of water yesterday after washing terry0cloth rob and bunch of towels
I thought maybe it got off balance Xlarge load and spashled out, but can't find evidence of that either.
could be related though
(there be 10yo dust/dirt)
I'm running a small load with one towel right now - so far so good.
you weren't close enough to hear an off-balance load?
MY gf told me if it gets off balance it does stop, but doens't buzz
it should be tight with any load(atleast all macines I've seen
what should be tight?
Heh, never considered 10yo dust/dirt a diagnostic tool =)
this was washer?
clothes washer, yes.
I have the front cover off so I can see the tub, transmission, motor, pump, etc
crap, download 666mb at 666kbps
JymmmEMC: sounds like you may be overthinking this
eric_u: Washer just don't leak a couple of gallons of water for no reason.
eric_u: Besides, you are the devil, El Diablo, Satan Herself, so you would be trying to trick me =)
download of the devil
that was the peak download speed for an ubuntu iso
eric_u: Well, the size, sure, but not the DL speed.
you'd think the publishers of civ4 could predict their network traffic would be high right after christmas
Connecting to 22.214.171.124:80... failed: No route to host
civ4 isnt new is it?
no, but the computer is so I need patches
anyone here at grinding?
is that like Grinding Mississippi ?
no.. grinding stuff..
Well, unless you mean an angel grinder, I'll say no =)
juve is now known as alex_joni_
I love this light http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?itemnumber=94668&Submit=Go
Check when it's on sale for ~$19.99 (or less iirc)
im in sweden
sipping is 25$
and customs 25% of 19.99
+ the tax we pay on the moeny when we earn them,..
crap tax system.
one LED is red when charging, turns green when charged. Magnetic base is really strong. The side hooks are removable.
Puts out a lot of light too.
anonimasu: marry a fireghiner then you can have dual citizenship =)
Marry two foreigners have have tripple citizenship - till ya get caught =)
HF does have crappy tools, but I will admit their their electronics havne't been half bad actually.
