[17:37:15] <alex_joni> g'evening
[17:43:23] <jepler> hi alex_joni
[17:44:50] <alex_joni> hi jeff.. what's cookin' ?
[18:08:20] <jepler> just workin'
[18:08:56] <alex_joni> nice.. I'm just wasting time..
[23:19:47] <jmkasunich> hi
[23:20:02] <SWPadnos> argh
[23:20:07] <jmkasunich> ?
[23:20:18] <SWPadnos> sorry - still fighting with LabView FPGA
[23:20:28] <SWPadnos> sometimes, it decides that 32 + (-10) is 40
[23:20:44] <jmkasunich> new math?
[23:20:50] <SWPadnos> very
[23:21:17] <SWPadnos> of course, the only reason I have to deal with it is because there's no arithmetic shift "block"
[23:22:45] <jmkasunich> how many millions of additional hours would have to go into HAL before it could do that kind of labview-y stuff
[23:22:55] <SWPadnos> I refuse to be a part of that ;)
[23:23:17] <SWPadnos> unless you mean adding randomization to the calculations
[23:23:51] <SWPadnos> the diagramming would be nice, and it's probably on the list of discussions for Fest
[23:24:25] <jmkasunich> yeah, but thats just the tip of the iceberg if we really wanted to do what labview does
[23:25:26] <SWPadnos> I don't think we do (do we?)
[23:25:32] <jmkasunich> not really
[23:25:41] <SWPadnos> phew
[23:25:48] <jmkasunich> but hearing your grief over issues with a closed source tool...
[23:25:55] <SWPadnos> yeah - well.
[23:25:59] <jmkasunich> and knowing that hal is sort of like that
[23:26:03] <SWPadnos> at least it's available for Linux ;)
[23:28:14] <fenn> *ahem scicos cough sputter*
[23:29:16] <SWPadnos> cool
[23:29:38] <fenn> never used it, just played with the demos
[23:29:53] <SWPadnos> looks cool.
[23:30:10] <SWPadnos> I doubt it has 1/10 the "features" of labview though
[23:30:20] <SWPadnos> but at least it can probably add correctly
