[11:56:06] <alex_joni> micges_work: sorry, wasn't around till now
[11:56:15] <micges_work> np
[11:56:22] <alex_joni> thx for letting me know
[16:47:52] <skunkworks_> seb!
[16:48:05] <skunkworks_> did you guys get dumped on also?
[16:48:28] <seb_kuzminsky> hey!
[16:48:43] <seb_kuzminsky> not so much snow, less than 6 inches total, but freaking cold
[16:48:49] <seb_kuzminsky> -17F this morning
[16:49:14] <skunkworks_> yeck
[16:49:19] <skunkworks_> we are getting that soon
[16:50:24] <skunkworks_> we are around 12 to 18" and now the wind is starting
[16:50:25] <skunkworks_> :)
[16:50:38] <skunkworks_> I wish I had bought a set of ski boots.
[16:50:50] <seb_kuzminsky> no time like the present
[16:50:57] <seb_kuzminsky> get gaiters too ;-)
[16:51:08] <skunkworks_> heh ;)\
[16:51:24] <seb_kuzminsky> that's some kind of mutant smiley
[17:23:40] <mshaver> Has anyone implemented a "spindle running" hour meter and/or a "distance traveled" meter?
[17:28:29] <micges> mshaver: for tool life measuring?
[17:30:38] <mshaver> micges: Actually for machine life expectancy testing, but something done of tool life purposes would probably work for what I need to do.
[17:39:15] <micges> I see
[17:43:42] <SWPadnos> mshaver, someone asked about this (again) yesterday or Monday. I think the major hurdle is keeping track of the "hour meter" across runs
[17:44:21] <micges> maybe in var file?
[17:44:36] <SWPadnos> then it needs to be in a var to start with
[17:45:33] <SWPadnos> or you need to run some G-codes at startup and shutdown to pre-load and save the timer/counter(s)
[17:55:24] <micges> hi cradek
[18:28:45] <mshaver> SWPadnos: I didn't know anyone else was interested in this. One solution is to hook up a Hobbs meter to the spindle power, but I'd rather have a software solution. I'll have to look up if the log function has a way of recording timestamps.
[21:04:06] <rob__> rob__ is now known as robh_
[23:20:58] <jepler> hm, somebody should do something about this:
[23:20:58] <jepler> WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/emc2, it will be ignored in a future release.
[23:21:07] <jepler> (just noticed on my 9.10 system)
[23:22:59] <jepler> probably just renaming the file in debian/extras would work, but I don't have the urge to test it at the moment
