[00:45:48] <alex_joni> man9/mux4.9:23: warning: can't find font `N'
[00:45:58] <alex_joni> don't remember seeing that before..
[00:59:40] <jepler> huh I don't get that message
[01:00:02] <alex_joni> that's with 2.2.4 on hardy
[01:18:57] <jepler> ah I spotted the typo now
[01:19:33] <CIA-30> EMC: 03jepler 07v2_2_branch * 10emc2/src/hal/components/mux4.comp: typo in docstring
[01:19:50] <CIA-30> EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/components/mux4.comp: typo in docstring
[01:26:37] <alex_joni> good night all
[03:24:13] <CIA-30> EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/classicladder/spy_vars_gtk.c: name change
[03:30:13] <CIA-30> EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/classicladder/symbols_gtk.c: change to have only one blank line in list
[03:31:15] <CIA-30> EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/classicladder/drawing.c: change to add colour to input/output variable names
[03:34:39] <CIA-30> EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/classicladder/zEMC_README.txt: update
[10:04:45] <CIA-30> EMC: 03alex_joni 07v2_2_branch * 10emc2/src/hal/classicladder/calc.c: backport remove unneeded include, this caused problems on some platforms (e.g. hardy)
[10:29:59] <CIA-30> EMC: 03alex_joni 07v2_2_branch * 10emc2/src/hal/classicladder/calc.c: oops, undo last fix, it doesn't make things better..
[10:59:37] <alex_joni> that problem is actually in the rtai source..
[11:36:58] <alex_joni> I mean adeos patch
[18:38:37] <alex_joni> * alex_joni kicks CIA-30
[18:38:37] <CIA-30> ow
[18:39:59] <SWPLinux> that's kind of mean
[18:40:12] <alex_joni> * alex_joni eats CIA-30
[18:40:12] <CIA-30> * CIA-30 tastes crunchy
[18:40:44] <SWPLinux> * SWPLinux makes obligatory "I kiss you" reference
[18:40:53] <alex_joni> huh?
[18:41:22] <SWPLinux> remember a few years ago some "middle eastern" guy made a web page that said "I Kiss You"
[18:41:40] <SWPLinux> it was in the news for a while - there's maybe even a book or something
[18:41:50] <alex_joni> hmm.. can't say I remember it
[18:42:06] <SWPLinux> http://www.ikissyou.org/
[18:43:37] <alex_joni> hmm.. odd
[18:43:44] <alex_joni> that made the news?
[18:44:22] <SWPLinux> yeah
[18:44:25] <SWPLinux> sad, huh?
[18:44:42] <jepler> it was a long time ago in internet years. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_kiss_you
[18:45:18] <SWPLinux> yeah, it was a personal ad before internet personals had gotten popular
[18:45:25] <SWPLinux> for the most part
[19:57:07] <jmkasunich> jepler: offs has cut its first part
[20:06:12] <alex_joni> yay offs ;)
[20:07:09] <jmkasunich> http://jmkasunich.com/pics/port-machined-2014.jpg
[20:08:40] <alex_joni> I wonder how important the shape is
[20:08:54] <alex_joni> (besides looking good :)
[20:08:58] <jmkasunich> it just has to look good
[20:09:10] <alex_joni> does anyone look in there?
[20:09:26] <jmkasunich> no, but the guy who builds the engine (and who buys the manifold) does
[20:11:20] <SWPLinux> now all you need is a simple program to generate circular toolpaths on the desired surface, for a nice machining pattern :)
[20:12:04] <jmkasunich> actually the people who would use these parts would probably like it if the machining pattern was parellel to the flow lines
[20:12:25] <alex_joni> why? it creates turbulences in the flow
[20:12:36] <alex_joni> err.. ok, I misunderstood :)
[20:12:45] <SWPLinux> steps across the flow should be worse
[20:12:47] <SWPLinux> heh
[20:15:45] <jtr> for an extra $$, they can buy the performance version, polished with an abrasive slurry...
[20:19:02] <jmkasunich> for an extra $$, I'll change the stepdown value, run offs again, and do it with 3 times as many steps ;-)
[20:19:43] <jmkasunich> it takes about 20 mins to run as is though (two roughing passes with a 1/4" regular end mill, then a prefinish and finish with a 1/8" ball mill, plus drilling the bolt holes
[20:22:37] <fenn> you could do it with a bigger ball-end?
[20:23:27] <jmkasunich> the radii at the left side are small
[20:25:26] <jtr> jmkasunich: I think it's slick, but when you mentioned changing the machining pattern, I thought about the polish option. That would also smooth the rest of the passage.
[20:26:07] <jmkasunich> true - the rest is sand-cast, not exactly smooth
[20:27:45] <jtr> They won't be cheap as is - there might be a market for polished ones.
[20:29:36] <jmkasunich> I'll leave that to my buddy
[20:29:49] <jmkasunich> I just machine 'em
[20:30:44] <jtr> don't blame you. gotta run finish the taxes...
[20:33:11] <jmkasunich> gotta run and machine 16 more (or until I decide to take a break)
[20:36:17] <alex_joni> where's that pallet changer when you need it
[20:40:41] <fenn> its by the forklift
[20:42:11] <alex_joni> hmm.. any of you have an installed emc2_2.2.4 ?
[20:42:56] <jmkasunich> I'm running the shoptask on 2.2.4
[20:43:08] <alex_joni> for some reason the one I just installed (checked out -rRELEASE_2_2_4 says it's 2.2.4~cvs)
[20:43:54] <alex_joni> jmkasunich: so AXIS->about says 2.2.4 ?
[20:44:17] <jmkasunich> yes
[20:44:36] <alex_joni> hmm.. odd, emc2/src/config.h holds that info
[20:44:46] <alex_joni> but it should get generated from config.h.in
[20:47:57] <alex_joni> hmm.. I think what happened is that configure didn't get regenerated before the tag was set
[20:59:07] <jepler> jmkasunich: whee
[20:59:26] <jepler> alex_joni: hm, I regenerate the configure script when I package, but I never put that version in rc
[20:59:29] <jepler> er, in cvs
[21:22:07] <alex_joni> jepler: ok, my bad.. I'll redo the packages here
[23:35:44] <fenn> this is interesting: http://ikiwiki.info/TourBusStop/ wiki in a git repository
