[17:59:11] <alex_joni> LawrenceG: hi
[18:38:44] <CIA-31> EMC: 03alex_joni 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/components/toggle2nist.comp: add toggle2nist by awallin
[20:26:34] <LawrenceG> alex_joni, greetings ... sorry was out at an auto auction
[20:47:33] <alex_joni> LawrenceG: np, I just wanted to talk about your feature request
[20:48:25] <LawrenceG> ok... not sure what it was now.... was it the booting issue?
[20:49:29] <LawrenceG> I tried a livecd from a few days ago and it ran fine on my all sata system
[20:50:39] <LawrenceG> except it didnt recognize any usb devices inclusing my usb mouse.... worked fine once I plugged in a ps2 mouse
[20:55:11] <alex_joni> LawrenceG: that's odd... USB works fine here
[20:56:10] <LawrenceG> who knows... it maybe a m/b issue... not a show stopper as I am only running sim on this box
[20:59:28] <alex_joni> ok
[21:07:12] <LawrenceG> alex_joni, I will probably be updating an older 6.06 box to 8.04 for my shoptask, I will let you know if I see any issues... Thankyou for such great software
[21:08:22] <alex_joni> LawrenceG: depends which software you mean :)
[21:08:32] <alex_joni> if it's Ubuntu.. I didn't write it (but I agree it's great)
[21:09:11] <LawrenceG> emc has progressed so much since I started using it in the 90's
[21:09:12] <alex_joni> if it's emc2.. I didn't write that either.. (well.. maybe a couple of bits here and there ;)
[21:09:48] <LawrenceG> all the contributions add up to a magnificent project
[21:10:14] <alex_joni> imo it's not a magnificient project ;)
[21:10:29] <alex_joni> it's a great one, but there is still room for improvement.. that's why people keep working on it
[21:11:29] <LawrenceG> http://members.shaw.ca/cncstuff/emc.html .... a flash back in history.... took about 2 weeks to get emc running back then
[21:15:09] <alex_joni> LawrenceG: that was quite entertaining
[21:15:21] <alex_joni> took me about the same on the suse 6.3 I started with
[21:17:10] <LawrenceG> I still have a box with redhat 6.2 running a ham radio application at a remote repeater site.... I am afraid to go near it.... every once and a while I ssh in to make sure the HD hasnt filled up due to log flooding (or HD death
[21:18:13] <LawrenceG> I dont know how the power supply fan is still running... the cpu had a large passive heatsink, so it is probably ok without a fan
[21:19:00] <alex_joni> I saw the same for PSU's
[21:19:10] <alex_joni> if they aren't really stressed, they can work ok without the fan
[21:19:22] <alex_joni> especially older ones (properly sized)
