[02:45:51] <tombrown_> Gents, I have some non-development questions to ask. As I recall, there is a non-development channel but I don't recall the channel ID. Would someone mind steering me in that direction as I have some questions regarding drivers and electronics. Thank you.

[02:49:05] <tombrown_> Thanks. I appreciate it.
[02:49:30] <jmkasunich> cradek: I read that coding horror earlier today
[02:49:43] <jmkasunich> didn't see the bikeshed.com one before tho - pretty good
[02:49:57] <jmkasunich> especially the proposed email client features
[03:34:25] <cradek> jmkasunich: I think it's interesting to consider that arguing about trivial points may just be a form of procrastination
[03:34:49] <cradek> I did some more work with 2.3.0~beta1 tonight
[03:35:49] <cradek> I only spotted one bug: when boring, the last pass that brings the bore exactly to size chatters
[03:35:52] <fenn> i linked to that article on a mailing list where people were arguing about how a phrase "feels" to the general public, and they got all offended
[03:36:33] <cradek> heh
[03:43:01] <jmkasunich> cradek: do you think you can fix that bug?
[03:43:06] <jmkasunich> if so, I'd like the code
[03:43:27] <cradek> I bet it's been around a while
[03:44:49] <jmkasunich> I'm procrastinating right now
[03:45:11] <cradek> I got an indical - indicol - indocol
[03:45:16] <cradek> the bore measuring thingy
[03:45:17] <jmkasunich> every time I have to deal with something on this jig that the original maker did it makes me want to avoid
[03:45:18] <cradek> it's neat
[03:45:19] <jmkasunich> neat
[03:45:28] <jmkasunich> I got one at NAMES last year
[03:45:40] <cradek> but isn't that the whole job?
[03:45:48] <jmkasunich> not really
[03:45:58] <jmkasunich> the gearbox is entirely new, for example
[03:46:12] <jmkasunich> but it has to mount to parts that the other guy borked up
[03:46:40] <cradek> look at it this way - I bet he beat your price
[03:46:43] <cradek> :-)
[03:47:03] <jmkasunich> I'd like to beat him
[03:47:23] <jmkasunich> got a clue-bat handy?
[03:47:58] <cradek> sorry, I keep it at work
[03:51:00] <jmkasunich> just have to skip the bat and go straight to the cluehammer
