[03:08:24] <tomp> did DaveE come to the Fest?
[03:19:57] <jmkasunich> no
[03:20:02] <jmkasunich> too far I guess
[03:20:29] <tomp> ok, thanks
[04:30:04] <cradek> hi skunkworks
[04:30:12] <cradek> I'm jealous of your working hotel internet connection
[04:40:29] <cradek> or not
[04:45:26] <Skullworks-PGAB> " (control.c motion.h): convert homing from edge to level triggered" - any reason why?
[04:45:48] <SWPadnos> to work better with noisy limit switches
[04:45:57] <SWPadnos> or something like that
[04:46:16] <cradek> yeah also that

[04:47:54] <Skullworks-PGAB> thanks

[05:08:28] <tomp> i always thought fenyman was the announcer on groucho marx 'whats my line' :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXT2E9Ccc8A&mode=related&search=
[12:26:22] <jepler> skunkworks: you're up early
[13:00:14] <alex_joni_> alex_joni_ is now known as alex_joni
[13:33:36] <alex_joni> hello ray
[13:35:44] <rayh> Hi Alex. How's the old married man today?
[13:36:13] <alex_joni> haha.. pretty fine actually
[13:36:28] <rayh> Great.
[13:36:45] <alex_joni> how are you?
[13:41:12] <rayh> Good.
[13:41:21] <alex_joni> good to hear that
[13:51:59] <jepler> alex_joni: perhaps you'd like to work on making G96/G97 appear in the active gcodes display in the GUIs. I don't think it does..
[13:52:33] <alex_joni> jepler: I can probably do that
[13:53:05] <alex_joni> it's modal right? either G96 or G97 is always displayed?
[13:53:35] <jepler> alalgreat, thanks
[13:53:43] <jepler> argh bad connection
[13:53:47] <alex_joni> eek..
[13:53:59] <alex_joni> you're at the hotel?
[13:54:01] <jepler> alex_joni: yes that's right
[13:54:09] <jepler> one of G96 or G97 is always in effect
[13:54:11] <jepler> yep still at the hotel
[13:54:27] <jepler> in just a minute we'll go have breakfast and then get to the workshop in 90 minuts or so
[13:54:31] <alex_joni> hopefully by the time you get there, you have something to test
[13:54:39] <jepler> talk to you later
[13:54:41] <alex_joni> later
[13:58:34] <alex_joni> seems you already added it
[14:01:54] <alex_joni> gez[13] =
[14:01:58] <alex_joni> + (settings->spindle_mode == CONSTANT_RPM) ? G_97 : G_96;
[14:11:11] <alex_joni> nm.. found another small thing to make it work :)
[18:30:00] <skunkworks> logger_dev: bookmark
[18:30:00] <skunkworks> Just this once .. here's the log: http://www.linuxcnc.org/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emcdevel/2007-06-15.txt
[18:50:24] <rayh> I just saw something with 2.1.6 that distressed me a bit. Feed override no longer slows homing.
[18:51:22] <rayh> The scale variable used to apply to any motion.
[18:52:11] <jmkasunich> chris tells me its been that way since 2.1.0, or maybe even earlier
[18:52:42] <jmkasunich> "that way" = FO not modifying home
[18:53:31] <jmkasunich> the reason was that if FO is greater than 100% you can overrun home switches or smash into end stops, etc
[18:56:30] <jmkasunich> it might be nice to allow FO less than 100%, but not more
[19:09:54] <rayh> I think I'm seeing something goofy with home here. It seems to go faster than supposed to for a bit then slows to the correct speed.
[19:10:49] <rayh> I'd rather see scale work as it did. But I'm an oldbee rather than a newbee.
[19:15:22] <jepler> uh oh -- they've got the big wrench out
[19:15:41] <rayh> Who they chasing with it?
