#emc-devel | Logs for 2006-04-13

[01:05:41] <jepler> will somebody who's not on paul's bad side ask where the isos have gone?
[01:08:42] <cradek> maybe he'll post to the lists or something.
[01:08:55] <cradek> what am I supposed to fix on the cvs?
[01:11:22] <jepler> cradek: alex_joni added a new file, but interrupted it (see a pattern yet?) and after that got an error when he tried to commit it
[01:11:36] <cradek> I wish he'd stop that
[01:11:37] <jepler> cradek: so I guess see if there's a turd for the file he interrupted adding?
[01:11:51] <cradek> do you know what dir?
[01:12:13] <jepler> documents/lyx maybe
[01:12:31] <cradek> nothing in /cvs-locks...
[01:12:38] <jepler> he said something about adding it with a different name, and the file he added was in documents/lyx
[01:13:31] <cradek> -r--r--r-- 1 alex_joni emc 79 Apr 12 15:35 Int_EMC2_Compile.lyx,v
[01:13:31] <cradek> -r--r--r-- 1 alex_joni emc 7999 Apr 12 15:54 EMC2_Compile.lyx,v
[01:13:46] <cradek> that's some strange permissions there
[01:14:41] <cradek> root@cvs# co -p Int_EMC2_Compile.lyx,v
[01:14:41] <cradek> Int_EMC2_Compile.lyx,v --> standard output
[01:14:41] <cradek> no revisions present; generating empty revision 0.0
[01:16:34] <jepler> that sounds messed up
[01:16:42] <jepler> a bit
[01:18:19] <cradek> I deleted it
[01:20:46] <cradek> man, I like cvs, but sometimes it seems like it might suck
[02:17:28] <cradek> jepler: well someone asked
[17:33:08] <alex_joni> hi guys
[17:34:50] <SkunkWorks> Hi alex - friday here :)
[17:55:38] <alex_joni> really?
[17:55:39] <alex_joni> :D
[17:58:02] <SkunkWorks> for some reason this company gives us "good friday" off
[17:58:10] <jepler> SkunkWorks: lucky you
[17:58:17] <cradek> no kidding
[17:58:24] <alex_joni> oh, it's easter
[17:58:27] <SkunkWorks> right
[17:58:30] <alex_joni> maybe that's why..
[17:58:36] <alex_joni> at least for catholics
[17:58:43] <SkunkWorks> owner is pretty religous
[18:12:28] <SkunkWorks> I am a convert - I like eagle http://www.electronicsam.com/images/KandT/eagle.JPG
[18:13:40] <jepler> SkunkWorks: ugh! png! Use png!
[18:13:51] <SkunkWorks> png?
[18:13:56] <SkunkWorks> oh sorry
[18:14:00] <SkunkWorks> I am on a windows box
[18:14:12] <alex_joni> ewww, winXP ;)
[18:14:17] <jepler> oh, and linux for that matter
[18:14:21] <SkunkWorks> :)
[18:14:48] <jepler> SkunkWorks: what's that board for?
[18:14:50] <SkunkWorks> I see there is a linux version of eagle.
[18:15:06] <jepler> yep, the linux version works great
[18:15:24] <SkunkWorks> It is the start of the servo power stage.
[18:15:51] <SkunkWorks> using alex's favorite ir2111 half bridge driver ic
[18:16:25] <SkunkWorks> I still have to add the opto - isolators and 15v power supply for the ic's
[18:16:57] <SkunkWorks> this will be my first "milled" circuit board.
[18:17:30] <alex_joni> SkunkWorks: best of luck ;)
[18:17:33] <SkunkWorks> I have some servos out of a printer to play with - they have optical encoders on the back.
[18:18:35] <SkunkWorks> I would have killed for this kind of software in the early 90's - everything was so expenisive back then and sucked
[18:19:38] <alex_joni> you mean eagle?
[18:19:41] <alex_joni> or emc ;)
[18:20:11] <SkunkWorks> sorry - eagle - and emc for that matter. I rememeber my father printing out the emc info right from nist back then.
[18:20:26] <SkunkWorks> But I had even less of a clue back then
[18:24:08] <alex_joni> yah, same here :D
[18:24:14] <alex_joni> about the clue :P
[18:33:14] <SkunkWorks> :)
[18:35:54] <jepler> "printing out"?
[18:36:19] <alex_joni> jepler: cat > /dev/lp0
[18:36:35] <cradek> lp0 on fire
[18:37:43] <jepler> bash: /dev/lp0: No such device
[18:38:03] <alex_joni> well.. that was back in the 90's
[18:40:44] <SkunkWorks> did I miss something?
[18:41:20] <alex_joni> the 90's ?
[18:41:53] <SkunkWorks> when did nist start emc? I remember a huge printout explaining the control software
[18:42:12] <SkunkWorks> seemed like around that time. mid 90s?
[18:49:03] <SkunkWorks> In the early 1990s, the Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) began the Enhanced Machine Controller (EMC) program to develop a modular definition of components for machine control
[18:51:48] <alex_joni> SkunkWorks: we know them facts :D
[18:52:28] <SkunkWorks> well I must be confused then :)
[18:52:29] <alex_joni> SkunkWorks: wanna know a little secret?
[18:52:36] <SkunkWorks> sure
[18:52:42] <alex_joni> now that you start to like eagle
[18:52:56] <alex_joni> there's a nice rendering lybrary for eagle
[18:53:04] <alex_joni> so you can render your boards 3D
[18:53:34] <alex_joni> looks like this: http://www.hackaday.com/entry/1234000617073526/
[18:53:55] <alex_joni> http://www.matwei.de/doku.php?id=en:eagle3d:eagle3d
[18:56:46] <SkunkWorks> that is pretty neat - although I don't think I would ever use it.
[18:57:15] <alex_joni> just thought I'd mention it ;)
[19:02:30] <SkunkWorks> thanks alex - I am a minimalist - well not really
[19:19:31] <alex_joni> jepler, cradek : any of you still around?
[19:19:56] <alex_joni> I'm falling asleep soon, don't want to leave #emc unattended though..
[19:21:58] <jepler> yeah I'm here kinda
[19:22:06] <SWPadnos> me too
[19:22:14] <SWPadnos> err - hi guys
[19:22:28] <alex_joni> jepler: can you look over fogl's shoulder?
[19:22:33] <alex_joni> hi steven
[19:22:44] <SWPadnos> hiya
[19:22:53] <jepler> alex_joni: I'll see what I can do
[19:22:55] <alex_joni> still traveling?
[19:23:02] <SWPadnos> nope - home finally
[19:23:17] <alex_joni> coo
[19:23:38] <SWPadnos> yes indeed
[19:43:06] <SWPadnos> got a CVS question for jepler or cradek
[19:43:14] <SWPadnos> (or anyone else who knows the answer)
[19:43:48] <SWPadnos> what would I need to do to be able to back up the repository on Dreamhost?
[19:44:06] <SWPadnos> I believe I can set up cron jobe, but I'm not sure how to get the repository with history
[19:44:51] <jepler> cradek's the one to answer that question
[19:45:19] <SWPadnos> ok. I'll ask later
[19:45:39] <SWPadnos> hmmm - maybe I should swap out UPses - this one is beeping incessantly, and the "change battery" light is on
[19:45:49] <SWPadnos> that makes me nervous
[23:03:10] <lilo> [Global Notice] Hi all. We're experiencing serious problems with connectivity to our European hub. Investigating now.
[23:12:36] <lilo> [Global Notice] Hi all. We momentarily lost our connection between our European and US hubs. We're told there are reports of ssh and http connection problems, so this may have been a large backbone glitch. If you have any information, please let us know; we're looking into it.
[23:12:48] <lilo> [Global Notice] Everything seems back to normal. Thanks for your patience, and thank you for using freenode!
[23:19:40] <lilo> [Global Notice] Hi all. Looking at http://www.internetpulse.net/ (internet pulse), it does look as if there were fairly widespread problems. So far things seem to be stable. Thanks again for your patience, and for using freenode!
[23:42:21] <jmkasunich> looks like the forgot to blow the dust out of the internet back on 4/1
