is that a lathe?
no - large vmc
that is for rigid tapping
[02:19:54] <skunkworks> http://www.electronicsam.com/images/KandT/oldkandt.JPG
gonna do rigid tapping on that beast sam?
jmkasunich: Hey! yes - that is the plan.
1" x 8tpi :-)
yes - I plan on making a video :)
I wanna see it do #2-56
we can try :)
I just updated my website for the first time in almost 2 years
now if I can just get going on all my other projects
heh - I check every so often just to see.
nothing shop related, just some photos

I think the spindle encoder is the last major mechanical change to the machine. Now it is just debugging (well and a control panel)
jmkasunich: cool pics
all I have is http://www.electronicsam.com/images/house/IMG_1525.JPG
looks like you got a bit more snow that we have
we have maybe 6-8, where is isn't drifted
had a ton of wind, some places are completely clear, others are deep
is your garage all done?
we got some pretty strong winds too.
it is functional.. (garage doors work and such) but it needs wiring - outlets and light. (we just use the opener light right now_
thats a summer project, or as least spring
although it has been a couple of summers and springs so far ;)
I guess I have been away for a while
yes you have! glad your back :)
not sure how back I am
have you seen any of the videos?
me in the basement and the new dog loose upstairs might result in problems
yes, I've been keeping up on the mailing list
heh - good.
had a little step back today as I had deleted a abs.0 from a thread and it took a bit to figure out what was going on ;)
(spindle quite working)
not quite working
well - I have to get going - good to talk to you!

Been looking at that for a while now.. trying to figure out what OPTO's he's used on it.. I want something like that, except, just the AC side of it.. no need for the micro.
anyone here have one of them ?
You are no longer limited to burning wood and melting plastic
Yea. I'm hoping someone who has one can tell me the #'s on the two optos..
cradek: I thought you might be interested in this... TTF2SVG http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/batik/tools/font-converter.html
where lookahead code calculated on emc2 source code?
you probably want to look at the trajectory planner
Albert_N3: try this http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?Simple_Tp_Notes
and here http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?TrajectoryControl
lot of love...
Albert_N3: improving lookahead isn't a simple thing to do...
yeah, you bet. but maybe...
car bowling... http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/2010/12/19/wa.ice.sliding.cars.khq?hpt=C2
...how can i made livecd of emc2 ?
there should be an iso-download somewhere
[19:27:31] <awallin> http://www.linuxcnc.org/lucid/ubuntu-10.04-linuxcnc1-i386.iso
Be sure to verify the MD5 and burn at 4x speed.
I have never burnt that slow for yonks
good cd's and good drive will be happy a lot faster
yonks...longer that I can remember ish
can i run livecd without hardisk at all?
archivist: The problem is that for years emc iso have issues for some, and the solution is to burn at 4x resolves the issue
hard disk is not required unless you want some presistance of configs/user dta
archivist: I have no idea what the issue is, but that's the anti-coaster solution.
whats is minimum RAM to run livecd?
256 and the VERY min, 512 ok, more is better
Albert_N3: When you use a LiveCD, everything is kept in memory and not cached to hdd, so the more ram the better, or it'll be reading the cd a LOT
and cd/dvd are very slow
how much is LOT of RAM? recommended?
more Ram recommended?
good evening, i have add a new hal pin out, and write in interp_queue.hh the new fuction, but when compile have :../lib/librs274.so.0: undefined reference to `SP_ON()'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [../bin/rs274] Errore 1
. where is the problem ?
Albert_N3: 1gb is enought
Albert_N3: less then 512 will involve much CD reading
also i think it's better to use usb stick instead of CD
There is never enough ram or L2 cache.... 4TB Ram, 512GB L2 Cache, and 512 PB Storage
psha: Eh, both are slow, thumbstick slightly faster.
i have 2GB... it would be enough Thanks!!!
Jymmm: re:car bowling: heh, use winter tires :)
Albert_N3: that's plenty unless you get abusive and run 100 apps at once
Jymmm: cd is extremly slow on random reads and needs spinup time...
LiveCD's are great, just netbooting is better if it's going to be used on a regular basis
psha: I'm from California dude, we have no funky white stuff =)
on the ground that is
2GB is good right?
Albert_N3: excellent, more than enough
Albert_N3: Be sure to run latency tests for 24hours too
how to do thats?
to be on the safe side.
Well, get up and going on the livecd first, then somene can give you a hand with that
for rtai setting
(i am still downloading a new emc2 livecd)
Jymmm: every year there are new videos from Vladivostok (it's near Japan) where 4x4 cars with winter tires play same bowling :)
Albert_N3: Burn it at 4x speed to save some grief.
psha: I bet everywhere has that. should have a 360 8" rubber bumper =)
ok Jymmm i will do that.
i ll do a very deep mark on the CD.
Jymmm: it's not strange in places where people have snow once per 10 years, but in places where 6 months are covered with ice/snow its a bit strange :)
and run latency test
snow is good!
if i have old livecd, can i update it? recompile emc2? how?
its a big .iso
you can also do a standard 10.04lts install, and then run the emc2-install script
the old livecd is probably not a good idea...
why not good idea?
ubuntu it self has updated version also?
andypugh: i have found the problem from yesterday with my random behavior of the y axis: one cable was loose and fell off -.-
if it's a livecd based on 10.04lts then maybe it will work. just upgrade to the latest emc2 when done
[20:02:40] <Albert_N3> http://www.linuxcnc.org/lucid/ubuntu-10.04-linuxcnc1-i386.iso-->is
this based on 10.04lts
i might need an update in the future, i should get prepare.
Farthen: I think I suggested that possibility?
now ubuntu is v10.10
but no prblem
it is still the same lts
if i add 2gb more RAM, so it is 4gb of RAM, will ubuntu-10.04 recognize it? or it will recognize it as 3.1gb?
EMC2 doesn't need much memory.
i just worry about rtai
ok i just read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ubuntu_releases
i understand now
have a nice day.
[Global Notice] Hi, sorry for the noise. A quick be of re-routing due to the issues a few days ago and some upcoming server maintenance.
what sorts of things could cause EMC2 to turn off, but not throw an error ?
that would be lovely if it were that simple...
It probably thinks it has finished, I guess the question is why it thinks that.
