#emc-devel | Logs for 2009-11-23

[02:04:02] <jepler> one point to anybody who understands my message to emc-developers; two points to the person who can point out the technical error that I no doubt made in it
[03:26:08] <cradek> do I get anything for reading through to the end?
[04:00:33] <jepler> cradek: hm, I guess I scaled the points poorly
[04:00:37] <jepler> surely that's worth at least one point
[04:02:05] <cradek> if only integer points are given, I agree the scaling was off
[04:44:32] <cradek> jepler: actually, I think you sent that message only to me [git-adm]
[04:45:07] <cradek> you are not the first to reply to a -commit message and expect it to go somewhere other than to just me
[04:45:24] <cradek> (I wonder where it should go)
[08:06:38] <alex_joni> cradek: devel list sounds like a good choice
[08:13:30] <micges_work> hi alex_joni
[08:53:43] <alex_joni> hi micges_work
[13:26:13] <jepler> cradek: hah, oops
[13:26:30] <jepler> cradek: didn't reply to emc-commits go to the developers list once upon a time?
[13:32:26] <jepler> yeah, they did -- http://pastebin.ca/1683670
[14:03:46] <cradek> yeah that's gotta be the right answer. I will try to fix it.
[14:04:09] <cradek> it baffles me how you can take the day off work and still be up and around at 7:25
[14:04:27] <cradek> I made a pcb on jr last night. I brought it to show you, but you aren't here...
[14:10:22] <cradek> reply-to fixed
[14:20:27] <jepler> good morning
[14:20:38] <jepler> what's the circuit board for?
[14:21:10] <cradek> greenhouse temperature/humidity sensor
[14:21:27] <jepler> how stupid is this: a microcontroller board that you can only write software for using a website. http://hackaday.com/2009/11/21/review-mbed-nxp-lpc1768-microcontroller/
[14:21:48] <jepler> > what really sets it apart is the development environment: the entire system — editor, compiler, libraries and reference materials — are completely web-based
[14:21:48] <cradek> five (!) temp sensors and humidity, and it will send the data over rs232 to a logger indoors
[14:22:10] <cradek> hahaha I agree that "really sets it apart"
[14:25:09] <skunkworks_> cradek: how fast where you able to run the board?
[14:25:48] <cradek> slowww
[14:25:57] <cradek> spindle is 6k, so I cut at 6ipm
[14:26:34] <cradek> I'd get max working again if I was doing many pcbs
[14:26:34] <jepler> yawn
[14:26:36] <jepler> I bet the corners are all quite sharp though
[14:26:53] <cradek> yep, it is perfect
[14:30:44] <jepler> > Uncomfortable with the idea of "losing" weight, because loss has a negative connotation, Feigelson decided instead to "give away" her extra weight.
[14:31:49] <cradek> > Uncomfortable with the idea of "losing" weight, because loss has a negative connotation, Feigelson is an insufferable twit.
[14:32:37] <jepler> maybe that's why people write "loosing" -- it's to avoid the negative connotation of "loss".
[14:32:53] <cradek> well that's one explanation
[14:33:35] <cradek> http://code.google.com/p/heekscnc/wiki/HowToUse
[14:34:14] <cradek> the algorithm used to cut the cone looks pretty poor
[14:34:45] <cradek> the ball too - the rapids appear to go through it
[14:35:55] <alex_joni> better than this one though http://heekscnc.googlecode.com/svn/wiki/adaptiveopen.png
[14:36:21] <cradek> ha
[14:36:47] <alex_joni> from http://code.google.com/p/heekscnc/wiki/AdaptiveRoughing
[14:36:53] <alex_joni> I like some of the explanations
[14:37:05] <alex_joni> dchangright for example
[15:58:57] <skunkworks_> cradek: you could just mount a high speed spindle on your jr.. Off the side or something.
[16:00:38] <cradek> maybe someday I'll find a speeder for it
[16:01:13] <cradek> what I should do instead is put a super high speed spindle on max, which will obviously never need to cut metal again
[16:01:16] <skunkworks_> heh
[16:54:06] <cradek> more 1/8 collets on the way...
[17:17:58] <jepler> cradek: are your toolchanger pockets full yet?
[17:18:32] <cradek> jepler: shamefully I think I have more tool holders than pockets, but they are not currently all full
