I'm trying to configure emc2 to drive my pwm motor controllers. Some people in here suggested that I use scale and deadzone to accomodate the duty cycle ranges of my motor, but I'm not sure where to start. Here's the basic ranges of my controller: http://dpaste.com/190542/
normaldotcom: you still around?
normaldotcom: I would start by reading this short chapter to get familiar with HAL http://www.linuxcnc.org/docview/html//hal_basic_hal.html
normaldotcom: is this a spindle drive?
no, this is for my x/y
I guess I'm just not really sure what argument pwmgen.update() takes
sorry that is above my guesspertice level and the lightning is getting too close for me to stay on line
that is attached to a thread and each cycle of the thread it gets called

but its still running at 1280x1024 and getting the same kind of latency numbers \o/ ...just kinda laggy about shovin windows around

prob okay for cnc
it doesnt do it with xubuntu out of the box, i think just since the new kernel
might be something simple, too tired to mess with it now tho

just upgraded ubuntu to the newest LTS version, and the little widgets at the top of every window are on the wrong side
the dialog shows them all on the right
I guess I shouldn't complain about something like this, I just spent many, many hours trying to fix a bug on my mother-in-law's computer. HP printer software causes it, and they've known since at least 2007
no rush ;)
I'm amused now that I know what the problem is
how is HP like the mafia?
they don't take no for an answer
the software asks to open a port, windows firewall says no, software asks again
in a tight loop

is there a command to reconnect to the network after disconnecting the cable?
i changed switch and XP had NP, i had to restart ubunto
piasdom: there is a Network button in the menu...
network tools ?
anyone know a 8.04 channel ?
hi jt; just wanted to know how to restart the network at the command prompt
it should automatically reconnect
now i have other questions and wanted to take it to ubuntu forum
you can check the status with ifconfig
you can disconnect and reconnect with "ofconfig eth0 down up"
SWPadnos; i did..no info
you can right click on the two computers in the upper right corner to see the properties too
if you run ifconfig and there's no info, you have other problems :)
i retarted and it worked
I meant sometimes you can right click on the computers
just wanted the command
an how do remove a host name ?
what do you mean?
change the name of the computer?
when i do an upgrade it says can't find hostname, it still upgrades, but i want to fix that
sorry .> error mesg unable to resolve host Network
there should be a file called /etc/hostname, I think
not /etc/hosts, which is a list of other computers and their IP addresses
host network is different
you may want to ask in #ubuntu
woot, another heeks update coming :)
morficmobile; yes ?
morficmobile; i see it... thanks
nameserver 184.108.40.206 <-- should have those pointing at your isp's nameservers
that one is google's
morficmobile; it shows two ip address; nameserver 220.127.116.11 and 98
usually has a primary and secondary, yes
does your computer have an IP? does it have a default route? does it have nameservers? <-- i usually check in that order
just the two nameserver
i mean the machine, not the file, sorry
ifconfig <-- gets you ip, route <--- shows you route, one of which is default gw,
if resolv.conf is ok, you have an IP and a default gateway (gw) it's good
ifconfig looks good...thanks
dang traffic was horrible this morning... I saw 3 cars, 2 trucks, 1 suv, 2 dogs, 1 rabbit, and 1 old couple out for a morning walk
did you get any of them?
almost got the rabbit
no points for you then
my internet uses power over the ethernet, will a switch pass that one to my antenna?
no, probably not
usually you need a POE switch to connect directly to the powered device
or a mid-span power supply
hmm, if I plug the antennna adapter into the switch then plug a line to the router do you think that would work?
wth is an "antenna Adapter" ?
I can plug the antenna adapter into my computer and get the internet ok... now I'm trying to get it down to the router in the basement
it's a little tiny thing with a female rj45 on one side and a male rj45 on the other side and a giant wall wort to power it up
mid-span power supply
and what does it do?
it powers the antenna device
it powers up the antenna that points to the tower up on the hill
that adapter thingy needs to be on the wire that directly connects to the antenna
It's a PoE Power Supply?
yes the female end gets the rj45 from the antenna
oh, that's lucky
the network wiring has to be antenna -> power supply -> switch
and don't connect it the wrong way :)
but you should be able to use a pretty long cable on either side of the power supply
then from the switch -> router internet in ?
however that connects now, yes
SWPadnos: Think you hate flash? Just add VR... http://secondlife.com/whatis/?lang=en-US
I ran a second Ethernet cable down to the basement like we talked about the other day and now on my lan all computers can "see" each other so that part is good :)
I tried putting a female wall plug on the cable that ran down to the basement but for some reason that doesn't work
that "Welcome Island" is SL looks exactly like the original demo in Abode Atmosphere 10 years ago
could be lol, I assumed a straight through wiring
not ethernet =)
gotta go by the color codes on the jack
if there aren't any, get different jacks
(since the ones you have aren't made for ethernet in that case)
use A or B color code?
568B is more common, I believe
ok, I'll try B this evening thanks
[13:42:38] <skunkworks_> http://www.electronicsam.com/images/KandT/conversion/All_i-o.JPG
I think I have tried all but B lol
that is 4 plugs worth of i/o...
* Jymmm bets there aint no panduit/cable mgmnt in there
dad gets a kick out of you worrying about that... ;)
and No, duct tape doens't count! ;)
worry, nah. I'm not the one that has to troubleshoot it. I'll be the one smirking down the road =)
skunkworks_ anything powered up yet?
well - I actually flipped the breaker to it this weekend... Things powered up (like the 110v transformer that is going to be running the computer and relays)
I may not be good for anything, but the one thing I'm damn good at is wiring chassis and troubleshooting them. Cable management is a gawd send in that respect. do it right the first time, will save you years of frustration, agony, asprin, and tequilia !
Oh, and thermal stamp wire labels SUCK - Never use them!
the ones that stamp directly on the wire, not the ones that stamp on shrink tubing.
skunkworks_: nice pc mount
5 and 10HP Motors form Grainger as example
Jymmm: what do you use for a labeler?
we have been using normal number strips then heatshrinking clear tubing over them. (they are all numbers...)
skunkworks_: you mean the books ?
skunkworks_: Yeah, those are fine. It's the ones that heat stamp directly on the PVC.
sort-of - we had a 0-9 numbering gizmo that had the numbers on rolls.
skunkworks_: Those suck, they have a tendancy to come off.
the adhesive is crap.
yes - that is why we heatshrinked clear over them ;)
skunkworks_: Without buying a $1000+ cable labeler. what works nice is a $20 labeler from any office supply store. just get one that doens't waster tape with a 1/2" margin on either side.
there is another one ~$150 that can print on the 1/8" tape too, can be programmed from PC as well
does 1/8 to 1" wide tape iirc
availabel from Staples and other places.
skunkworks_: how long until it moves?
cradek: I have stopped giving times... ;) soon I hope. Going well - dad has been removing hydraulic lines we don't need\
jymm. whit heatshrink. black sharpie
or black HS and silver sharpie
the servo interface is mounted - if you look at the picutre...
this box is going to be packed... ;)
few covers need to be sealed and we can start bringing up the hydraulics and play with gear shifts and tool changes.
skunkworks_: I actually made a few parts on the Hardinge
JT-Work: great - any issues?
skunkworks_: I think this is the one... http://www.brother-usa.com/Ptouch/ModelDetail.aspx?ProductID=PT2700
just dumbass things lol
skunkworks_: One of them has label tape that can be used on the "binding edge" (so to speak) of Cd Jewel cases.
what he said =)
(i cheat, i work for a book binder)
injecting molten plastic into a mould around the wire. that'd work on fitted wires
DaViruz: I couldn't recall the name. I used to do bindary eons ago
skunkworks_: see pic http://www.brother-usa.com/accessories/AccessoryFilter.aspx?Model=PT2700
DOH, Select 9/64" for the size
thats a crazy fraction
They even have labels to print your name in your underwear! LOL
and iron on
Witht eh PC aspect, you can add logos to your labels.
Brother makes CNC Machines ?!?!?!?! Now that's scarry!!! http://www.brother-usa.com/machinetool/default.aspx?src=movie
EDM machines too
it was a brother sewing machine that had the gameboy interface for embroidery
color gameboy to be precise. it worked with the camera addon
i seem to remember something like that
it was only sold in japan, so I never saw more than pics
Well, we had one of Brothers Embroidery machines. piece of shit.
ideal for putting hello kitty on your cardigan
The ONLY machine I'd buy now is a Janome. That thing is AWESOME
This sucker sews thru 7 layers of denim using regulr needles like there's nothing there.
[14:19:21] <Jymmm> http://janome.com/index.cfm/Machines/Sewing-Quilting/DC2010
Best damn sewing machine for $400. Worth every penny. Great for a starter machine.
it looks like brothers normal sewing machines have the gameboy built in these days
Yeah, FSCK Brother!
Crappy plastic gears
not a very deep throat on that one. for proper cloth cnc I'd want one that can work the width of a fabric roll
Well, those are the industrial machine.
industry = effort that's worthwhile
* MattyMatt teaches Asimo to sew
it walked like a cliche tailor anyway
Jymmm: Janomes are nice but a real machine is Juki
we have this one: http://www.imca.net/stocklist/juki%5Cddl5554.JPG
serious machine! sounds like a jet engine is starting when I push the ON button :P
that's an industrial machine though =)
I bought it for $400
its a replica of the PFAFF that is build neer my hometown
hello, and welcome to another episode of How the Machine Turns (or doesn't). In today's episode, Grommit's machine will begin to execute a NGC file and then just stop for no apparent reason. His ngc file is at http://pastebin.com/3sJYBBgF,
his HAL file is at http://pastebin.com/tV0Wx25L,
and his INI file is at http://pastebin.com/MRmK1Yda.
EMC Status shows that it stops at line 453. This file has been run on several other machin
I've got a Pfaff walking foot machine... I swear it could sew plywood ... very tough ... made for leather and heavy canvas..
453 is a tool change...
Yes, but there is no tool change dialog (even hiding behind AXIS)
we also have an OLD Kenmore 158 http://qurl.org/9z0
a Janome RX18s http://qurl.org/Bz0
and a Baby Lock BL3 http://qurl.org/Az0
None are embroiders, though.
what emc version?
When I execute it, the dialog comes up, and I (pretend to) change tool and click ok
Then it spins up spindle, moves x,y,z and then just sits there indefinitely with spindle turning.
net spindle-at-speed => motion.spindle-at-speed
seems like there is nothing driving spindle-at-speed, unless there is another hal file somewhere
Jymmm: What do you do with them? I bought the Pfaff used to sew canvas, and upholstery.. works fine for that. It really is not good for sewing light material though..
no other hal file (a custom hal but only for joypad)
Dave911: Not much, it's the gf's machine.
grommit: so not line 453?
What do you mean?
cradek: when debugging tough gcode problems does it make sense to put in message lines - similar to print lines for tracing stuff in python? Or is that ineffective.
grommit: you said EMC shows it stops at line 453
in the paste line 453 is fine
but I don't know why you call G83 4 times withought a G80
It is someone else's file, and at this point I don't want to debug it as it works for him. I just want it to run on my setup (which is nearly identical to his). I am sure it is my problem somewhere...
cradek: are you saying that my net spindle-at-speed => motion.spindle-at-speed is wrong?
well, just in case you want to debug... line 471 to 474, there is no G80 between the G83. It shouldn't be an issue, just bad coding practice ;)
ok, thx, I will pass it on...
someone is selling a 10kW lathe spindle motor http://img408.imageshack.us/i/007rf.jpg/
I can't use that ;)
real nice.. http://img227.imageshack.us/i/014hv.jpg/
grommit: When I hit a wall I usually start commenting stuff out to see if it is an issue ...
well maybe not for hobby...
Dave911: I usually just grab explosives.
grommit, what version of emc2?
is he running?
oh, let me check for him...
Hey .. SW.. back from vacation ?? :-)
Have a good time?
grommit: start your program and run it until it hangs, then start halmeter and see motion.spindle-at-speed, and then see pins I haVE told you yesterday
it was funny though, one day we were gone, there was a foot of snow here (more in some nearby towns)
another day the temperature here was warmer than Miami (86 degrees, here, only 82 in Miami)
Where did you go?
7-day caribbean cruise
Half Moon Cay (private island in the Bahamas), San Juan PR, St. Thomas, and Grand Turk
I have heard of Half Moon Cay ..... doesn't the cruise line own that island ??
It's also known as Little San Salvador
His version of EMC is not easily found out(computer packed away at the moment), it is likely an 2.3.X but a few revs behind latest.
nicest beach I've ever seen, but it rained that day
Good think you weren't cruising the gulf of mexico ! Just off Louisiana!
grommit, ok. are you sure that the hal file you just posted has all of his HAL info?
Dave911: how bad is it?
as cradek pointed out, there is nothing driving the spindle-at-speed signal
micges, very bad
Really, really bad ... as of last night the oil is still flowing ...
Signals: tool-change: FALSE, tool-changed: FALSE tool-number 6 tool-prepare-loopback FALSE
and may get up to 50000 barrels a day of "leakage"
What should drive spindle-at-speed?
something that tells you when the spindle is at speed
dammit. BBC cut off Obama just wehn he'd stopped puffing about Times Sq and started talking economy
OT - but I heard that BP oil does need to use the same safety gear in the gulf that they do in the north sea ... and that may be why they can't turn it off .. there will be hell to pay after this mess ....
I don't have an encoder on the spindle.
grommit: comment it
I like the simplicity of your statement though ;-)
then you should either leave motion.spindle-at-speed unconnected, or set the pin TRUE
probably leaving it unconnected is better
so comment it out as micges suggests?
I still don't quite have the HAL concept down
it's wires and pins
study.. study ... :-)
a wire that only connects to one terminal doesn't do much good (unless it's an antenna, which HAL doesn't have)
does pncconf always put that in, even when nothing is driving it? it's a bug if so
I believe that is where it came from
cradek: it seems so
grommit: does it helps?
Very cool, yes, that was the problem!
So, for my edification.... in my file I also have: net spindle-cw <= motion.spindle-forward and net spindle-ccw <= motion.spindle-reverse that don't appear to have any other reference
But, I when I click on the CW or CCW arrows in AXIS the motor changes dir
you have things connected differently
grommit: we will bug pncconf author about this problem
grommit, with emc2 running, you can do "halcmd show sig" in a terminal, to see all the signals
that will be a large list, but since signals are listed with all the pins connected to them, you can find any that have only one pin and remove those references from the HAL file
yes, differently, you're using the sign of the speed for that, aren't you?
(-4000 = go backwards at 4000)
I don't know. It just works, I don't recall doing anything to make it connected...
we discussed the PWM and controlling your FWD/REV relays before, I think
I changed the control-type of the step pulse to "1" and I think that did it.
yes, but the functionality that SPINDLE-CW and SPINDLE-CCW provide is also "available" in the spindle speed itself, since it's a signed value
I have a step pulse to a board that converts to an analog 0-10
there are often multiple ways to do something, and you happen to be using something other than CW and CCW signals from the motion controller
Hmm, I haven't quite solved my problem....
I get further but then get a following error on my z-axis every time.
I set the ferror and min_ferror way up and that doesn't seem to help
Z has encoders too?
yes, z has same encoder
same kind (2048ppr)
the following error is unrelated to the G-code, it's a configuration error
I like this concept. Busbar style power supply. http://qurl.org/Cz0
Makes a nicer control box.
it may be that you haven't seen it before because this file runs Z at a higher feed rate than you have used before
gotta run. bbl
Ok. I will run halscope on it and see what the ferror is
nice. a circular rail. should work with my 4th axis setup :) http://qurl.org/Dz0
even has a clamp. wonder how it is activated
hmm, I can't seen to see the ferror in halscope. it may be that I am not triggering it right. my program stops every time on g0 z#<zSafe>. not sure what that does.
I assume zSafe stops the spindle and raises Z to change tool
g0 means a rapid move, z#<zSafe> asks it to move in Z axis to position stored in variable #<zSafe>
Ok, so it raises z up. So, SWPadnos was right, it isn't g-code, something must be wrong with ferror on z in my config (too low)....
How can I get Halscope to trigger just before the failure?
got it. Just kept clicking Single trigger mode until I got it.
Whoo hoo, I just made a (imaginary) part!!!!
After the spindle-at-speed problem, it was a matter of tweaking MAX_ACCELERATION. That was causing the following error (too high acceleration).
bonny: please don't ctcp whole channels, it's quite impolite
(unless if you're using /me which translates to a CTCP ACTION)
sorry I didn't want to do that... I'm just 1'st time on the IRC
and he's already abusing apostrophes? :-p
apostrophe: it's always you who gets abused
hey all, I can run axis properly in my test environment, but when I try to run classiclader I get Shared memory conflict or RT component not loaded!, is there a way to start classiclader?
other then from cmd
run the demo_sim_cl config, and pick classic ladder from the File menu in AXIS
Ahh ok, I thought it was a stand alone thingy...
you can get to it from the menu... neat.
I should remember that
[19:37:03] <frallzor> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/emcinfo.pl?Simple_Remote_Pendant
I was thinking about this
im getting a controller to do this, could some of its button be used for run, pause and stop for use with touchy?
plan is to slaughter the controller and make a new nice case
frallzor: that is the one I use on my plasma cutter
JT-Work: any pics?
of the plasma cutter?
yes and pendant
frallzor: yes works fine
I'm working on it and don't have idea how can it looks like
you set speed using buttons or just use a max value and control it with the joystick?
[19:42:12] <JT-Work> http://s47.photobucket.com/albums/f163/johnplctech/Plasma%20Cutter/
I use the speed buttons just like on the wiki
micges: the pic on the wiki is the same as mine
if Im reading it right if you just set like 10000mm/min you can make it go 0-10000mm/min with just using slight movement of the joystick
yes + ranges set by which button you hold down
but not needed?
like a high medium, slow button
lets say I just want high and slow
you need some kind of button to enable it at the least
how many spares?
to use for touchy
would be nice to have enough buttons for proper speed and start stop pause =) but I dont know how many unique ones you get free after setup for pendant use
micges: were any of the pics helpful
what power plasma source you have?
how many A
there is some vids on the wiki of the plasma
how thick metal sheets?
LOL it will sever 1" I think and cut 3/4" and really cut 1/2" nice btw I think the word sever is french for fuscking ugly cut
I think I have cut some 5/8 on the table before... and it came out ok
we have cebora 160A
it can cut 35mm
35*.03937=1 3/8" nice
I see that you have belts for driving one axis? we have done one machine on it and after 6 months it had 1mm backlash on it
I have two belts for the Y gantry and one for the X axis and no problem so far with backlash
on that gantry what motor power there is?
links on wiki doesn't work
some nema 23 steppers
brb gotta run to a customer's place3
thar I go, made some nice values for screw distances!

* pfred1 has heatsink decisions to make
Valen water cooling? I really don't need it I'm more at anodized black or natural
now let me go tap this bad boy out
Whoot! I finally guessed enough with all the hints to get the internet to all computers and the lan to all the computers
SWPadnos: you around?
JT-Hardinge I tried to setup NAT here and it turned out all I had to do was plug a switch into the cable then plug any comp i wanted to into it
I finally got it all working, thanks for the help
great, you're welcome
I had to do antenna -> poethingy -> switch -> router internet plug
router to downstairs computers and also to another switch up here for the shop computers
JT-Hardinge I'm hardwired drilling a hole in the foundation seemed like the easiest solution to me
I'm hardwired everywhere too
JT-Hardinge plus my network is about 10X faster hardwired as opposed to wireless
the antenna thingy is the isp's antenna
antenna on my tower to antenna up the hill on isp tower thing
the only wireless is to my wife's laptop from the router
JT-Hardinge my ISP gave me a wireless LAN but it has jacks on it too
well router firewall whatever it is
I still never fixed it so I can DCC or stuff
the antenna I have is a point to point not a wireless thingy
JT-Hardinge like a satelite dish sort of?
no, radio line of sight from antenna to tower
I had to put up a 30' tower to "see" over the trees
JT-Hardinge the poor bastards here ran a cable to me I sorta felt bad for them
no cable out here in the woods
JT-Hardinge but hey they offered you know?
except logging cable
JT-Hardinge oh I'm out in the woods it's over a 900 foot run on my property
nearest cable is about 1/2 mile away from me and they can keep it lol
well its right along the side of the road but I'm set back some here
that's the way I like it can't see any one from my deck
in the winter when all the foliage dies off i can sorta make out one guy on one side of me
he's about a half an inch tall or so I'd say
I'm good to go the other three sides though
in the back I don't know how many miles it is to the next inhabited place
more than I'd care to find out thats for sure
* JT-Hardinge thinks about taking off the chuck now
everyone on my block shootsi n their back yards here
heh, we do too
we have some long range targets set up at my neighbors house
coz there's nothing really back there
I could shoot 1000 feet and still be on my property in that direction
I wish I had that much here, I only have 9 acres
oh i only have 3 but I'm narrow
and there's a hunting preserve in the back of me
its I donno how many hundreds of acres
they got their own man made lake i seen it from Google Earth
I heard them digging it for about 3 years
I heard the trucks going beep beep beep bacing up I was like wtf is that?
then one day i saw on the image the lake and it all came together for me
then for a couple of years it was real popular in season but its been dying off lately
That's a relief, I recompiled my live EMC2 version, and it still works
andypugh works is always good
I'm just about ready to smoke test my latest motor driver i just got done soldering up over here
I sure hope it works
Guest719 is now known as skunkworks
I still need to modify the part footprint a little I'm going to spread the ZIP legs apart a little it was such a pain to build
another hundreth of an inch there would make a big difference to me solderingit all up
MarkusBec is now known as MarkusBec_away
just make sure the video camera is going when you load test it
JT-Hardinge last one if I didn't foul up the library element for the optocoupler i used it would have been perfect as it was I perfectly made it wrong
Horribly off-topic, but this is some rather "committed" driving: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d01VBR5nKPw
andypugh you ever see the vid they madei n Japan of the nut going 175 MPH in rush hour traffic in a Lambo?
They do call it _rush_ hour.
well he was rushing
they busted his ass too using the video
supposedly they found eye witnesses that gave them enough information to track the guy down
How many Lambos are there to look for?
man the car sounds so ratty
missed that gear!
looks like a CART car
the red one at the end
my daddy used to like to race Indy cars
he hung out with Rodger Penskie and was good friends with a fellow named Mark Donahue
[23:22:14] <pfred1> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Penske
though dead old dad did manage to keep his name out of the history books
I should drop in on him some day and see if he freaks out or not
That's "dear old dad" then?
andypugh my dads name is Charlie Dietrich he knew Rodger back in the 60s may still know him I'm not sure
we don't really stay in touch though I was recently in contact with his brother my uncle
who I look exactly like
Read back what you wrote, it was an unfortunate typo (I hope)
I wish my father was Rodger Penske
that'd be sweet
nah my bum old man only hung out with him
but he was mark Donahue's second in a couple of races
they were close friends
and i guess thats how he knew Rodger
mark is buried in my home town
I seen his grave a million times
anyone used virtualbox for running xp?
skunkworks who are you the Mareuis De Sade?
No. I have used VMware though if that is any help?
skunkworks I used wine once it was too much like Windows!
andypugh: nice work on the 3 phase pwm driver
andypugh: how was the performance?
I haven't used it to spin a motor yet.
skunkworks when i finished the session my machine was so wonky i even rebooted it
Ah, you mean VMware
Ok let me slap another heatsink on this driver over here and fire it up
It is OK. Alibre design is a fair bit less responsive than natively-booted but that is probably down to graphics accelleration
Core Duo (no "2") 2Ghz
ok. I want to try it on a i7 quadcore
CPU-wise it should fly, but you might still struggle with graphics accelleration.
mozmck2: Hello! how is the kernel fight?
howdy! just now getting a little time to work on it. I'm about to compile with the latest code and rtai patch
how do I create a new page on the wiki?
[23:49:07] <JT-Hardinge> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?BasicSteps
type it into the address bar
I think you just type it in
No, you are all wrong, you just type it in.
and give MattyMatt a cigar
OK it works now its picture time
if you try to look at a page that doesn't exist, a wiki will usually create it
I am thinking Core Duo is a bit old hat now. Do I need an i5 27" iMac? I think perhaps I do.
uncyclopedia :) that's a whole heap of stupid
thanks, that worked
27" Samsung, to a c2d minimac via a KVM
you could make an i9 hackintosh :)
I really like the neatness of the iMacs. No trailing cables, they look nice turned off. If I am going to have a computer in my living room it has to look nice.
bury it in the plaster
and cnc a posher bezel for the screen, if you have to
I doubt my walls are thick enough, the amount of noise I hear from next door.

I could do you a 15" on mine
mm acrylic, that's sth to try with my new cutter
otherwise, it'll have to be plywood :)
I guess the bottom will have dropped out of the jewel-encrusted phone & lpatop market by now
We can hope
I rather fancied entering that market
