[00:24:52] <cradek> argh! the ::on_any_limit is still here on my home machine
[00:26:29] <cradek> oh interesting. when I did cvs up -A, I got an update of axis.py
[00:26:38] <cradek> it must have had a sticky tag?
[00:26:44] <cradek> too bad there's no way to tell now
[00:26:57] <SWPadnos> heh
[00:27:05] <SWPadnos> linux needs VMS-like file versioning ;)
[00:27:56] <cradek> now what the bloody heck was I going to do?
[00:28:39] <SWPadnos> test lerman's recent changes?
[00:29:13] <cradek> close - test the bobble
[00:29:31] <cradek> ahh, it's beautiful again
[00:29:31] <SWPadnos> ah
[00:29:31] <SWPadnos> heh
[00:29:40] <cradek> it looks very nice
[00:35:22] <fenn> bobble bobble bo bobble - banana nana fo fobble
[00:37:09] <cradek> fenn: did you see the xkcd about the car with too much bass?
[00:38:38] <fenn> perhaps. was there an EMP device involved?
[00:38:43] <cradek> yes
[00:38:55] <CIA-22> EMC: 03cradek 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/motion/ (motion.c mot_priv.h control.c): a couple more debug floats can't hurt.
[00:39:51] <fenn> so, apparently the banana crisis was a myth. let's all take a deep breath and relax
[00:40:23] <cradek> I hear other banana models taste better anyway
[00:47:57] <SWPadnos> huh - interesting titles to the first two papers: http://www.ce.utwente.nl/rtweb/publications/Msc_main.php?theme=FieldBusses&Startyear=2002
[12:46:15] <CIA-22> EMC: 03lerman 07TRUNK * 10emc2/tests/interp/flowsnake/ (README expected flowsnake.ngc test.sh test.tbl test.var): Test named owords, recursive subroutines using the flowsnake program.
[14:23:16] <CIA-22> EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/gcode/main.lyx: Turn some text references into lyx references
[14:23:39] <CIA-22> EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/gcode/ (6 files): move captions out of images. turn minipages into tables. turn some textual references into lyx references
[16:33:23] <fenn_> fenn_ is now known as fenn
[21:15:31] <SWPadnos> did anyone else get a chance to look here: http://www.ce.utwente.nl/rtweb/publications/Msc_main.php?theme=FieldBusses&Startyear=2002
[21:16:32] <SWPadnos> there is a paper on a kernel driver for the Mesa AnythingIO cards, which provides a userspace interface to programming the cards (cat myfile.bit > /proc/blahblah/prog_fpga)
[21:16:35] <SWPadnos> among other things
[21:16:53] <SWPadnos> I didn't see the code on the site, though I didn't look for very long
[21:26:04] <alex_joni> SWPadnos: I can't find anything either
[21:26:23] <SWPadnos> I'm looking around to see if there's an archive somwehere
[21:26:35] <SWPadnos> there was also the RT Firewire paper, which I haven't read yet
[21:26:37] <alex_joni> I found it here: http://www.ce.utwente.nl/Rtweb/publications/index.php?body=student_titles&Year=2007
[21:26:52] <SWPadnos> yep
[21:27:55] <alex_joni> http://www.ce.utwente.nl/rtweb/people/students/images/molanus.jpg
[21:28:44] <alex_joni> http://www.ce.utwente.nl/RTweb/people/index.php?body=student_info&key=195&type=4 <- email addy
[21:33:58] <alex_joni> SWPadnos: some codesnip http://mail.nl.linux.org/kernelnewbies/2006-08/msg00118.html
[21:38:28] <alex_joni> http://community.qnx.com/sf/discussion/do/listPosts/projects.core_os/discussion.buildbugs.topc1519
[21:42:11] <SWPadnos> hmmm. it looks like he only completed it in November of last year
[21:44:03] <SWPadnos> well, I'll email him and see what happens
[21:45:33] <alex_joni> ok, sounds right
[21:52:43] <SWPadnos> done
[21:52:51] <alex_joni> SWPadnos: http://www.ce.utwente.nl/rtweb/publications/MSc2004/pdf-files/020CE2004_Groothuis.pdf
[21:52:57] <alex_joni> some more info on the driver
[21:53:04] <alex_joni> that's an older paper from 2004
[21:53:27] <SWPadnos> the new one was a rewrite, so I'm not sure how relevant that one is
[21:55:13] <alex_joni> SWPadnos: bot use /proc/foo to update images
[21:55:23] <alex_joni> both even
[21:55:23] <SWPadnos> true
[21:56:04] <alex_joni> http://www.ce.utwente.nl/rtweb/research/index.php?body=embedded <- interesting testcases
[21:56:14] <SWPadnos> ok - the 9054 ID isn't even in the kernel pci_ids.h file, so it's sure that the driver isn't included ;)
[21:56:59] <SWPadnos> if only I could understand one word of - err - whatever they call the language of the Netherlands :)
[21:57:14] <alex_joni> got a link?
[21:57:17] <SWPadnos> yeah, the paper mover - cool
[21:57:21] <alex_joni> it's dutch btw..
[21:57:23] <SWPadnos> the pdf you linked
[21:57:25] <SWPadnos> ok
[21:57:49] <SWPadnos> ah, it's only the first couple of pages - phew
[21:58:01] <alex_joni> it's in english?
[21:58:09] <SWPadnos> after the intro, yes
[21:58:15] <alex_joni> only the summary is both languages
[21:58:31] <alex_joni> Samenvatting means Summary :P
[22:01:59] <SWPadnos> "The driver source coder for the Anything I/O board can be found in the CVS repository under /anything/driver/"
[22:02:03] <SWPadnos> oh great :)
[22:23:26] <alex_joni> can't find anything else :/
[22:23:47] <SWPadnos> yeah - I looked around a bit for their CVS server, but I don't know where it is
[22:24:04] <SWPadnos> or I should say, the right CVS server ...
[22:27:10] <alex_joni> lots of student CVS'es
[22:27:21] <alex_joni> *snt*
