[00:51:12] <morfic> would any of the devs benefit from a Phenom II X2 550 cpu? (retail cpu, nothing else)
[02:25:05] <ries_> ries_ is now known as ries
[06:52:36] <CIA-5> EMC: 03cmorley 07master * r22b9c8730234 10/lib/python/gladevcp/hal_python.xml: remove led_blink property. change default color selection
[06:52:37] <CIA-5> EMC: 03cmorley 07master * rd28211422853 10/lib/python/gladevcp/led.py: Change the way blinking is activated
[06:52:39] <CIA-5> EMC: 03cmorley 07master * r388db4a239e1 10/lib/python/gladevcp_makepins.py: Give spinbuttons float and s32 pins. get rid of led_blink option
[06:52:44] <CIA-5> EMC: 03cmorley 07master * rcad04a5e5e1f 10/lib/python/ (gladevcp/hal_python.xml gladevcp/led.py gladevcp_makepins.py): Add blinking ability to gladevcp LED widget
[06:52:45] <CIA-5> EMC: 03cmorley 07master * ra927df5c202f 10/lib/python/gladevcp/READ_ME: Correct wrong information
[12:21:54] <jepler-> jepler- is now known as jepler
[13:18:35] <alex_joni> morfic: too bad there's so much shipping ;)
[13:23:47] <skunkworks> http://www.cnczone.com/forums/emc_linux_enhanced_machine_control/113050-creating_new_module_hal.html#post832237
[13:25:45] <alex_joni> hmm.. that's a bit worrying
[13:25:46] <alex_joni> trying to overwrite '/usr/share/man/man1/comp.1.gz', which is also in package nmh 0:1.3-1
[14:27:31] <cradek> it seems extremely unlikely that Shen is using mh on purpose
[14:27:46] <cradek> I was the last user of mh, in about 1996 :-)
[14:28:03] <alex_joni> what's mh?
[14:28:12] <cradek> mail handler
[14:28:29] <cradek> mail manipulation at the shell, no gui/tui
[14:29:26] <alex_joni> last version of nmh is from 2008
[14:29:58] <alex_joni> there's also xmh and MH-E according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MH_Message_Handling_System
[15:02:30] <cradek> long ago the combination of mh + exmh was pretty unbeatable
[15:02:56] <cradek> you could manipulate mail at the shell for dialup, or use a decent gui when you're local
[16:36:53] <Dave911_> Dave911_ is now known as Dave911
[17:42:01] <morficmobile> alex_joni: much shipping? to where?
[17:50:50] <morficmobile> alex_joni: i mail stuff to germany, if i pick the right box, it's not so bad :)
[17:56:17] <morficmobile> alex_joni: so give me a destination and i get it quoted (for myself), if i like it, i ship it, uninsured, cheapest way :)
[18:49:02] <micges> hi JT-Hardinge
[18:53:32] <JT-Hardinge> hi micges
[18:54:06] <micges> are you using cutter radius compensation on your plasma cutter?
[18:54:40] <JT-Hardinge> no, the cam software takes care if that
[18:55:43] <micges> I see
[18:56:18] <JT-Hardinge> do you use it?
[18:57:17] <micges> I'm introducing ccomp to my gcode generator, cradek said that someone is using it on plasma and I thinked that it
[18:57:24] <micges> 's you
[18:58:03] <JT-Hardinge> ok
[18:58:48] <JT-Hardinge> what sheetcam does is to offset the profile by 1/2 the kerf width and trim any resulting overlapping lines I think
[18:59:13] <micges> I've introduced your idea to disable THC at some % of commanded velocity, it works great
[18:59:47] <JT-Hardinge> cool!
[19:00:27] <micges> I'm disabling THC also ~6mm before end of cut
[19:01:10] <micges> so if it hits already cutted area it doesn't lower
[19:01:19] <JT-Hardinge> ah, good idea
[19:02:42] <JT-Hardinge> are you doing that with your gcode generator?
[19:04:24] <micges> I'm issuing m62 before last move and rest of logic is in hal
[19:04:37] <micges> depends on motion.disance-to-go
[19:05:33] <alex_joni> cool
[19:06:58] <JT-Hardinge> cool
[19:08:14] <JT-Hardinge> so your using m62 as a switch to look for motion.distance-to-go to be < 6mm and disable your thc
[19:09:26] <micges> yes
[19:10:08] <micges> and that is or'ed with % of velocity comparator
[19:10:38] <JT-Hardinge> cool
