[01:34:24] <dgarr> patch amended to remove debugging prints, for consideration: http://www.panix.com/~dgarrett/stuff/0001-Numbered-parameters-for-current-tool-items.patch
[08:27:12] <alex_joni> ROFLMAO
[08:27:21] <alex_joni> http://www.linuxcnc.org/component/option,com_kunena/Itemid,20/func,view/catid,21/id,1103/
[09:12:24] <micges_work> hehe
[11:51:04] <jthornton_> Can the tool change window be "always on top" somehow?
[12:09:35] <alex_joni> it probably can
[12:10:02] <alex_joni> but I think there was a change so that popup windows don't need to get dismissed before having access to AXIS again
[12:27:51] <jthornton_> ok, thanks
[12:28:53] <jthornton_> and right you are I just tested it with 2.3.4
[12:47:38] <alex_joni> nice post though :P
[12:49:12] <jthornton_> alex_joni: I did my first live plasma test with the Mesa THC card last night :)
[12:49:17] <alex_joni> cool
[12:49:21] <alex_joni> I saw the screenshot
[12:49:26] <alex_joni> waiting for the movie :P
[12:49:32] <jthornton_> LOL
[12:50:07] <jthornton_> I'm step by step testing the comp before I let it take control of the Z during a cut
[12:50:20] <alex_joni> heh, you'd better..
[12:50:55] <jthornton_> it is still pretty safe as the torch holder floats on the Z
[14:47:55] <skunkworks_> http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390114000832&autorefresh=true
[14:53:47] <cradek> wow.
[14:55:57] <cradek> yours?
[14:56:06] <CIA-40> EMC: 03cradek 07master * r800cb5d2a905 10/src/emc/rs274ngc/interp_convert.cc: Fix compiler warning
[14:58:34] <skunkworks_> yes
[14:58:42] <skunkworks_> I am a winner! ;)
[14:58:53] <skunkworks_> they will run brushless and brushed.
[14:59:09] <cradek> what voltage/amperage?
[14:59:18] <skunkworks_> 15a peak 80v
[14:59:25] <cradek> ah
[14:59:46] <cradek> is that big enough for any of your projects?
[14:59:55] <skunkworks_> they will be really good for those pittman motors like what jepler has. (maybe a bit over kill) 7.5a cont.
[14:59:56] <cradek> sounds like no bigger than a small knee mill
[15:00:17] <cradek> ah, for really small stuff
[15:00:25] <cradek> maybe your robot!
[15:00:36] <skunkworks_> oh - that too. :)
[15:00:47] <skunkworks_> I thought there was one other project...
[15:00:53] <cradek> ha
[15:00:54] <skunkworks_> he has a few more on there too..
[15:01:15] <skunkworks_> they will do velocity also (if I had some tachs)
[15:17:42] <alex_joni> skunkworks_: we won't let you forget about it :P
[15:18:33] <skunkworks_> :) every time I walk by it I remember...
[15:22:53] <cradek> are you done with the parts of the shop project that are critical to get done before winter?
[15:49:56] <skunkworks_> yes - although dad is insulating and I think it will be enclosed again after this weekend.
[15:50:16] <cradek> cool. it's starting to feel like summer is almost over...
[15:50:41] <skunkworks_> it is warm here again today.. so not quite yet..
[15:55:01] <steve_stallings> steve_stallings is now known as steves_logging
[17:39:42] <micges> hmm while switching from v2_3_branch to master git show error: error: You have local changes to 'configs/sim/sim_mm.var'; cannot switch branches.
[17:40:03] <cradek> git checkout configs/sim/sim_mm.var; git checkout master
[17:40:12] <micges> but I see that *.var are in .gitignore
[17:41:06] <micges> ok thanks
[18:10:19] <skunkworks_> huh - these amps will run in current mode
[20:18:28] <skunkworks_> 33khz
[21:11:33] <CIA-40> EMC: 03jepler 07master * r33def8ad042d 10/src/emc/motion/control.c: Revert "only update joint-pos-probed when probe tripped"
[21:11:34] <CIA-40> EMC: 03jepler 07master * rcdbf449d2618 10/ (4 files in 2 dirs): Revert "provide additional probing-related outputs"
[21:11:35] <CIA-40> EMC: 03jepler 07master * r68be5aa82832 10/src/emc/motion/ (control.c mot_priv.h motion.c motion.h): Revert "Use a high-resolution probe result"
[21:11:47] <cradek> uh-oh
[21:11:52] <jepler> I *think* that reverts the bits of high resolution probing that change how the realtime motion controller work
[21:12:10] <jepler> I can't get my head around this interaction between task & motion that is giving me errors :(
[21:13:58] <cradek> man that queueing is complicated
[21:49:01] <skunkworks_> might have been the best thing ever to put the emc2 axis splash screen in there... ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWkoyheJ6LM
[22:11:01] <cradek> skunkworks: I love it - so many videos of that
[22:14:32] <alex_joni> cradek: just wait for skunkworks's puma to write that
[22:15:58] <cradek> it will one of these days!
[22:16:04] <cradek> bbl
[22:18:16] <alex_joni> surely
[22:53:01] <micges> alex_joni: what do you think about ability to get machine specific info avaiable at gcode level? (info like axis limits)
[22:53:52] <micges> err question is: should they be interp variables or named variables?
[23:05:56] <alex_joni> micges: no idea ;)
