[14:18:21] <alex_joni> hi flo-h
[14:18:35] <flo-h> hi alex
[14:18:54] <alex_joni> I guess I'll send an email to the -developers list and ask what people think of branching 2.1.x
[14:19:24] <alex_joni> jepler: do you still have stuff planned that you want included before 2.1.0 ?
[14:21:37] <jepler> alex_joni: It's becoming clear that I don't have the motivation to do any of the lathe features (CSS and feed per revolution) that I thought I would.
[14:21:48] <jepler> alex_joni: there are some things that need to be added to the AXIS GUI, as you know
[14:22:11] <alex_joni> thought chris wanted to do that ;)
[14:22:16] <alex_joni> CSS and feed / rev
[14:22:48] <jepler> after he finished CNC'ing his own lathe, I borrowed the nist-lathe from him with the idea that I would work on some of those features
[14:23:00] <jepler> but it's just sitting downstairs, unused
[14:23:08] <alex_joni> I know how that goes :)
[14:23:22] <alex_joni> but as someone once said: "we gotta leave room for improvement"
[14:23:42] <jepler> I'd like to figure out how to make "halcmd newinst" work with "halcmd save"
[14:24:16] <jepler> I don't think that my "hallelujah" GUI will be ready for 2.1 (I also haven't touched it lately), but on the other hand it could easily live as a separate package for awhile, like AXIS did.
[14:24:42] <jepler> so basically I want to do minor stuff for 2.1
[14:25:07] <alex_joni> ok, I have the stuff I need to make work (optional stop and block delete)
[14:27:07] <flo-h> my problem was. I asked at peters-cnc-ecke (german forum) if they werde satisfied with the german translation. The respone was that some people didnt know about it, because translation isnt clear working in the 2.0.x, as I found out, when I tried the life cd. Now I want to be sure it will work in 2.1.x (in head it works, so it will work in 2.1.x too) before I tell them something wrong
[14:56:27] <alex_joni> guess I never was motivated enough to test translation in 2.0.x
[14:57:20] <alex_joni> flo-h: one could make a localized LiveCD that has most/all of the stuff in german
[15:00:30] <flo-h> mhh, I dont know really how, do you hav al link how this works?
[15:01:14] <alex_joni> I could walk you through the process sometimes
[15:01:33] <alex_joni> if you think that's a good idea
[15:02:41] <alex_joni> flo-h: most info is here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization/6.06
[15:02:50] <alex_joni> but it might appear a bit scary the first time ;)
[15:02:57] <alex_joni> it's "halb so wild"
[15:05:19] <flo-h> thats nice, i have found http://uck.sourceforge.net/ "ich werde es versuchen"
[15:06:18] <alex_joni> uck might work too
[15:06:29] <alex_joni> although it's a pretty recent project
[15:07:06] <alex_joni> flo-h: I've done this a couple of times, so I know it can get problematic. if you get stuck drop me an email
[15:08:08] <flo-h> thaks, if i need help i would ask you
[15:08:41] <alex_joni> flo-h: I'm also most of the time in here..
[15:09:30] <flo-h> ok, so i know where to find you
[15:10:54] <alex_joni> also: if you have problems expressing yourself in english, you can use german in here (think the others won't mind it)
[15:15:36] <flo-h> understanding english is not a problem, but sometimes i don't know how to write things
[15:22:21] <alex_joni> ;-)
[15:22:37] <alex_joni> as I'm not a native speaker myself I know how it is
[15:23:02] <alex_joni> and my german should be better than my english
[16:59:41] <alex_joni> * alex_joni just had an revelating idea regarding optional stop
[17:00:02] <SWPadnos> well, revelate us ;)
[17:00:09] <alex_joni> need to verify it first ;)
[17:00:23] <SWPadnos> oh, verificalation is important
[17:01:33] <alex_joni> SWPadnos: it involves EMC_TASK_EXEC_WAITING_FOR_MOTION_AND_IO
[17:02:32] <SWPadnos> ok, so you effectively insert a precondition for the move after an optional stop requiring the IO to be "off" (or some such)
[17:02:54] <SWPadnos> isn't it the queueing that's an issue though?
[17:03:04] <alex_joni> it gets queued right
[17:03:15] <alex_joni> but it needs to flush the rest or such
[17:04:05] <SWPadnos> hmm - I was thinking of the problem where motions after an optional stop may be queued, so flushing the queue moves past the stop point
[17:04:21] <SWPadnos> if that's the problem - I may not understand it \\
[17:04:24] <SWPadnos> -\\
[17:04:34] <alex_joni> don't worry.. no one does
[17:04:35] <alex_joni> :)
[17:04:45] <SWPadnos> ok, I'm in good company then ;)
[17:43:14] <alex_joni> YAY
[17:43:17] <alex_joni> it works !!!
[17:43:59] <skunkman> optional block delete?
[17:44:04] <alex_joni> optional stop
[17:44:10] <alex_joni> works properly that is :)
[17:44:14] <skunkman> right - what you said :)
[17:44:30] <alex_joni> block delete is a bit harder to understand :)
[17:44:42] <alex_joni> jepler: still around?
[17:57:54] <alex_joni> http://pastebin.ca/219425
[17:58:06] <skunkman> so we are talking m1? where there will be a switch to turn it on?
[17:58:13] <alex_joni> skunkman: GUI
[17:58:36] <alex_joni> there is support in halui already
[17:59:12] <skunkman> skunkman is now known as skunkworks
