[01:17:16] <cradek> jmkasunich: cool, just thought you might want to know. enco has free shipping right now too, fwiw.
[01:20:59] <jmkasunich> I appreciate the info
[01:21:14] <jmkasunich> free shipping period? or do you mean "with a code and $25 order"
[01:21:36] <cradek> yes the code is for $25 this month, often it's 50
[01:22:05] <jmkasunich> I was thinking about getting the JTS ones
[01:22:21] <jmkasunich> I wonder if they'll be open next friday
[01:22:37] <jmkasunich> easter friday, some places close
[01:23:14] <cradek> they call them "gage blocks" ha.
[01:23:20] <jmkasunich> who, enco?
[01:23:25] <cradek> no, JTS
[01:23:50] <jmkasunich> heh, didn't notice that
[01:25:35] <jmkasunich> I got a pair of their $8 one-hole 1-2-3 blocks last time I was out there
[01:25:42] <jmkasunich> http://cgi.ebay.com/ULTRA-PRECISION-1-2-3-BLOCKS-NEW-123-BLOCK_W0QQitemZ390041057948QQihZ026QQcategoryZ633QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262?_trksid=p1742.m153.l1262
[01:26:31] <cradek> those look decent - good chamfers
[01:28:33] <jmkasunich> I just looked at enco and can't find the cheap 246 blocks
[01:29:04] <jmkasunich> their search sucks
[01:29:34] <cradek> http://www.use-enco.com/HTM/HOTDEALS/042009/17.htm#
[01:29:48] <cradek> bonus with purchase - more 123 blocks
[01:29:57] <jmkasunich> heh
[01:30:01] <jmkasunich> I already have two sets
[01:30:13] <cradek> I think that gives you 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9...
[01:30:23] <jmkasunich> one with lots of holes (which I hate, they're poorly made) and the one-hole ones
[01:32:40] <jmkasunich> heh, the blocks are on the cover of the hot-deals flyer
[02:10:09] <jepler> evening guys
[02:52:53] <cradek> hi
[02:52:58] <cradek> yay, outpost2 is alive
[03:21:04] <jmkasunich> outpost2?
[03:28:32] <cradek> moving my domain to home
[03:28:36] <cradek> (yay)
[03:28:53] <jmkasunich> timeguy you mean?
[03:29:14] <cradek> yes
[03:29:29] <cradek> using one of these ridiculous machines you gave me :-)
[03:29:43] <jmkasunich> the thin rackmount ones?
[03:29:49] <cradek> yes
[03:30:00] <cradek> I think I got a raw deal though - I think one of them is PII
[03:30:10] <cradek> this one is P3 though
[03:30:46] <cradek> need any 18G scsi drives? :-)
[03:31:03] <jmkasunich> that's ok
[03:31:07] <cradek> heh
[03:34:55] <jmkasunich> how noisy are those things?
[03:37:12] <cradek> loud, but I've heard much worse
[03:37:50] <cradek> hm, the old machine was an 866MHz and this is a dual-600
[03:37:59] <cradek> 4x as much RAM though - that was the real killer
[03:47:45] <jmkasunich> ISTR there wasn't really that much in those machines
[03:47:49] <jmkasunich> 256M?
[03:48:20] <jmkasunich> just out of curiosity, why are you using those...
[03:48:47] <jmkasunich> seems like a lot of noise, space, power, etc.
[03:52:56] <jmkasunich> If I was gonna move my server stuff from my main desktop box to a dedicated box, I'd use the atom
[03:53:46] <jmkasunich> 30 watts or so - and since it is DC input, I wouldn't even use a regular UPS, I'd just hook a battery up to the input, with a charger
[04:08:38] <cradek> I shoehorned 1GB into this one. The noise and space are irrelevant because they are not in "living" space. It's probably true it will take more power than necessary (but I don't know how much more really...)
[04:10:30] <cradek> I'll buy (or scrounge) a newer machine if I need it - but I probably won't, and this one is free
[11:32:43] <Martinp23> [Server Notice] Hi folks! The server you are on (kubrick) will be going down for around one hour for maintenance on Monday 13th April at 1400 UTC. We suggest that you connect to another server in the irc.freenode.net rotation to avoid disruption, asap. Thanks for using freenode and have a nice day!
[22:29:00] <CIA-2> EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/pncconf/ (pncconf.py pncconf.glade): encoder and PWM comboboxes will now change signal related comboboxes automatically . Meaning if you change phase A to X axis phase B and I will change too.
[22:32:15] <cradek_> cradek_ is now known as cradek
[23:52:51] <cradek> jepler: does this mean anything to you? http://pastebin.ca/1382234
[23:53:13] <cradek> this happened when I doubleclicked torus.png in file/open, which should have started i2g.
[23:53:29] <cradek> trunk on ppc
[23:53:56] <jepler> it means a file load was already in progress or not really done
[23:54:13] <jepler> .progress is the widget that shows the progress bar; it's created when you start loading or preprocessing a file, and destroyed when it finishes
[23:54:16] <cradek> there wasn't a load in progress
[23:54:20] <jepler> so you say :-P
[23:54:26] <jepler> so maybe missing cleanup in some error path?
[23:54:40] <cradek> it was the splash screen, idle for a long time
[23:54:56] <cradek> I think it was the first thing I tried to load, but now I'm not sure
[23:54:59] <cradek> hmmmm
[23:55:02] <cradek> let me play some more
[23:59:11] <jepler> should make sure that each path that creates a Progress has code on the way out to call its "done" method
[23:59:25] <jepler> in 'finally' clauses and other important places
