[00:23:26] <A-L-P-H-A> fly cutting... at 1ipm. :( 11" to move... so slow.
[00:23:38] <A-L-P-H-A> fly cutting a heatsink...
[00:24:28] <A-L-P-H-A> wow... almost done...
[00:24:58] <A-L-P-H-A> hmm... nice to see yourself after the fly cut. :) hehe
[00:31:42] <A-L-P-H-A> sweet! old heatsink will be new! :) hehe. JUST fits 3 geckos side by side.
[00:32:58] <robin_sz> sigh ... ok, whose heard of a 'quiz' called notpron?
[00:33:15] <robin_sz> http://deathball.net/notpron/
[00:33:34] <robin_sz> its taken me half the evening to get to level 9
[00:40:40] <les> level 9?
[00:41:07] <les> is that one step short of nirvana?
[00:45:39] <asdfqwega> Eewww, it says to use IE, not Mozilla
[00:49:03] <SteveStallings> Paul, you around?
[00:49:23] <paul_c> kinda
[00:50:27] <SteveStallings> Tried to access ISO as a test and my system locks with high CPU utilization on Cookie Cop. Suspect I have the host on my blocked site list. Do you know actual hosting company?
[00:50:54] <paul_c> kane.evendata.net
[00:51:25] <SteveStallings> Well, that isn't it....
[00:51:45] <SteveStallings> It used to work, not sure what is up.
[00:52:04] <paul_c> lemme try from here.
[00:54:19] <paul_c> hmmm... the emc page isn't being served up...
[00:54:45] <SteveStallings> It is related to Cookie cop. If I shut it down I can fetch ISO>
[00:55:19] <SteveStallings> emc page at Sherline or LinuxCNC
[00:56:22] <paul_c> the link @ sherline
[00:56:31] <paul_c> Downloading OK here...
[00:57:52] <SteveStallings> well it ok with me to have to shut down Cookie Cop, but we may have other users who hit some sort of simlar security snag
[00:58:52] <SteveStallings> unfortunately CC was not able to log anything so I am in the dark on this one
[00:59:03] <A-L-P-H-A> I'm on level 3...
[01:01:38] <A-L-P-H-A> robin_sz, what's that written on level 3? I can't makt it out.
[01:06:22] <A-L-P-H-A> level 4
[01:09:31] <robin_sz> well, that would spoil the fun :)
[01:11:51] <robin_sz> clue?
[01:11:57] <A-L-P-H-A> no.
[01:12:02] <A-L-P-H-A> I'm on level 4...
[01:12:18] <A-L-P-H-A> looking right now for that morse code.... but my monitor isn't diplaying any contrast
[01:14:32] <robin_sz> yeah, mine didnt either
[01:14:54] <A-L-P-H-A> wanna saev me the trouble of looking for morse code, and just pass me the two?
[01:14:58] <A-L-P-H-A> I know how now.
[01:15:08] <A-L-P-H-A> but I can't open the image, to brighten it to get the code.
[01:15:17] <A-L-P-H-A> photoshop is puking on me.
[01:15:25] <robin_sz> heh,
[01:15:27] <robin_sz> one moment
[01:16:20] <robin_sz> . .- .-.. -.-- -.. . .-
[01:16:23] <A-L-P-H-A> dot dot dot dot space dot space dot dash dot dot space dot dash dash dot
[01:16:43] <A-L-P-H-A> -.. --- --- --
[01:16:54] <A-L-P-H-A> ... . .-.. .--.
[01:17:31] <robin_sz> close ...
[01:17:49] <A-L-P-H-A> doo sel
[01:17:49] <A-L-P-H-A> ?
[01:18:06] <robin_sz> my morse above is correct
[01:18:26] <robin_sz> oops
[01:18:43] <robin_sz> . .- .-.. -.-- -.. . .- - ....
[01:18:47] <robin_sz> thats better
[01:19:24] <robin_sz> perhaps being a radio amateur in a former life was useful after all :)
[01:19:46] <A-L-P-H-A> http://img102.exs.cx/img102/455/thingy.jpg <-- is that it?
[01:22:02] <A-L-P-H-A> damn it.
[01:22:03] <robin_sz> right place ... but thats not the code :)
[01:22:03] <A-L-P-H-A> finally
[01:22:56] <robin_sz> level 5?
[01:23:44] <robin_sz> im still stuck on 9
[01:25:31] <robin_sz> bah, its someting to do with paul mccartney and the beatles, but i think i need to play an MP3 backwards to get the answer
[01:25:47] <A-L-P-H-A> level 5...
[01:25:50] <A-L-P-H-A> looking
[01:27:50] <A-L-P-H-A> my internet is screwing up.
[01:28:15] <A-L-P-H-A> bah
[01:28:23] <A-L-P-H-A> I'm getting annoyed with my net screwing up.
[01:37:37] <A-L-P-H-A> gotta be something to do with this:
[01:37:37] <A-L-P-H-A> So now the moral to this tale is if your love should fail
[01:37:37] <A-L-P-H-A> Pick your heart up off the ground
[01:37:37] <A-L-P-H-A> You see, love comes down when you're nowhere around
[01:37:37] <A-L-P-H-A> It's just the way things have got to be
[01:41:55] <robin_sz> oh yeah, 5 was actually simple, some things arent that hard really
[01:42:45] <A-L-P-H-A> I gave up... it's probably just "pickyourheartupofftheground" "yousee,lovecomesdownwhenyou'renowhere around'
[01:42:53] <A-L-P-H-A> but I just dropped it now.
[01:44:52] <robin_sz> its a line from a song
[01:45:34] <robin_sz> the group, you can work out ..
[01:46:00] <robin_sz> the title of the song is two words ... :)
[01:46:02] <A-L-P-H-A> this puzzle game is not interesting to me at all... I googled the song lyrics already from the Url.
[01:46:24] <A-L-P-H-A> "some things"
[01:46:33] <robin_sz> well done
[01:46:42] <A-L-P-H-A> well, I closed the window... what was level 5?
[01:46:58] <robin_sz> heh :)
[01:47:59] <robin_sz> I cant seem to find my window :(
[01:48:02] <robin_sz> doh.
[01:48:11] <robin_sz> it got a bit more techy after that
[01:48:19] <robin_sz> anyway, bedtime
[01:48:20] <A-L-P-H-A> got it.
[01:48:23] <A-L-P-H-A> night

[06:33:39] <dmwaters> {global notice} Hi all, in about 25 mins, I'm going to start rebooting a couple of our servers for updates. This should only take about 5 mins at the most. Thank you for your patience, and thank you for using freenode!
[06:49:51] <dmwaters> {global notice} Hi all, in about 10 mins, I will begin the server reboots. Any further messages for this will be given in wallops. Thank you for your patience, and thank you for using freenode!
[07:28:20] <dmwaters> {global notice} Hi all, one more major split coming, and then I'll be done for the evening. I apolovize for the inconvenience, and thank you for using freenode!
[09:17:35] <alex_joni> morning guys
[09:21:05] <A-L-P-H-A> guuuude morn.
[09:21:16] <alex_joni> hopefully
[09:22:22] <A-L-P-H-A> so happy that the mill is working. :)
[09:24:59] <alex_joni> nice going ;)
[10:32:03] <alex_joni> * alex_joni is away
[10:32:12] <alex_joni> alex_joni is now known as alex_joni_away
[12:00:41] <A-L-P-H-A> who's built a lot of power supplies?
[12:01:19] <A-L-P-H-A> should I get a ferrite bead for my power supply? or is that just a waste of money?
[13:56:55] <alex_joni_away> alex_joni_away is now known as alex_joni
[14:39:24] <anonimasu> hello
[14:42:27] <alex_joni> hey anon
[14:45:18] <les> hi all
[14:46:38] <alex_joni> hey les
[14:46:42] <alex_joni> how's the painting
[14:46:57] <les> it's going away!!
[14:47:05] <alex_joni> you must be happy ;)
[14:47:28] <les> talked with customer and have decided to outsource until I can build a painting bot
[14:47:45] <les> Pondering the cost accounting now
[14:47:56] <alex_joni> nice...
[14:48:27] <les> So....at least short term I am fired from my nice part-time $10/hr job
[14:48:34] <alex_joni> lol
[14:48:38] <alex_joni> you fired yourself
[14:48:46] <les> but hired as an emc machine operator
[14:48:55] <alex_joni> ;)
[14:48:58] <alex_joni> nice
[14:49:19] <les> at 1.3 burden that is $83/hr
[14:49:38] <les> makes mwe wonder if I should ever paint
[14:50:41] <les> direct labor and materials for painting is $.735
[14:50:43] <alex_joni> build the bot.. it's easier
[14:51:10] <les> Yes...I will have time after hunting seoson
[14:51:18] <alex_joni> hunting?
[14:51:25] <alex_joni> what game?
[14:51:29] <les> yes these are turkey calls
[14:52:06] <anonimasu> nice
[14:52:16] <les> So lets' see... I have to drop the price from $6/unit to 5.25....
[14:52:43] <les> but volume will almost double because I am running the machine...not painting
[14:52:56] <alex_joni> right now in romania they are hunting bears a lot
[14:53:11] <les> We have lots of bears here
[14:53:59] <alex_joni> and permission to hunt them?
[14:54:21] <les> There is a season...but I do not hunt them
[14:55:35] <les> Hmmm I think I am going to be ok here
[14:56:31] <les> I think I can now do 600 units a week
[14:58:00] <les> Well, better go out and get at it
[14:58:08] <les> enough office work
[14:58:23] <les> later
[15:00:55] <alex_joni> bye
[15:00:59] <anonimasu> * anonimasu yawns
[15:01:10] <alex_joni> * alex_joni agrees ;)
[15:02:39] <anonimasu> I am building on this stuff for this racecar
[15:03:18] <anonimasu> and later tonight I am going to go skiing
[15:09:44] <alex_joni> cool
[15:10:40] <anonimasu> :)
[15:10:42] <anonimasu> wonderful
[15:10:46] <anonimasu> I cant wait to try my code tho
[15:10:56] <anonimasu> going to write the algorithm to correct the motion tomorrow..
[15:11:06] <anonimasu> err auto build a correction map..
[15:11:46] <anonimasu> :)
[15:12:00] <alex_joni> the PLC stuff?
[15:12:20] <anonimasu> yeah
[15:12:29] <anonimasu> going to graph it during the test tomorrow night..
[15:12:47] <anonimasu> and use the numbers to correct the motion to get rid of the friction of the cylinder I am positioning..
[15:13:01] <anonimasu> neat stuff
[15:14:17] <alex_joni> yup
[15:14:47] <anonimasu> the accuracy has to be awesome..
[15:15:48] <anonimasu> race clutches arent forgiving :)
[15:18:40] <alex_joni> yo paul_c
[15:19:30] <anonimasu> alex_joni: the problem is that the guy driving is handicapped..
[15:20:13] <anonimasu> and there's no way to have any kind of mechanical connection with the clutch :)
[15:20:32] <alex_joni> I see...
[15:20:33] <anonimasu> or to the valve controlling the clutch..
[15:20:41] <alex_joni> paul_c: can you verify the md5sum ?
[15:21:23] <alex_joni> http://dsplabs.cs.utt.ro/~juve/emc/
[15:27:19] <anonimasu> I love this kind of projects..
[15:27:39] <anonimasu> they justify the use of stuff that's overkill at all other places ;)
[15:37:50] <alex_joni> * alex_joni goes home
[15:37:51] <alex_joni> bye
[16:41:46] <paul_c> Yo alex
[16:42:00] <alex_joni> Yo paul_c
[16:42:05] <paul_c> Problems with the check sum ?
[16:42:10] <alex_joni> don't know
[16:42:17] <alex_joni> never seen the original one...
[16:42:55] <paul_c> 0dc12948d3d05b293cdff7db1a218b18
[16:43:13] <alex_joni> 0dc12948d3d05b293cdff7db1a218b18
[16:43:26] <alex_joni> looks about right ;)
[16:43:31] <paul_c> yup
[16:43:39] <alex_joni> coo
[16:43:45] <alex_joni> anyways, what's new?
[16:44:06] <paul_c> Can you pull 4.08
[16:44:17] <alex_joni> pull 4.08?
[16:44:31] <alex_joni> what do you mean?
[16:44:33] <paul_c> delete it from the server
[16:44:41] <alex_joni> ahh.. it's gone, only the md5sum is there
[16:44:45] <alex_joni> but I'll rm it now
[16:45:12] <paul_c> New: Kernel recompiled for basic Pentium processors.
[16:45:16] <alex_joni> gone it is
[16:45:30] <paul_c> Homing bug fixed.
[16:45:40] <alex_joni> coo
[16:45:53] <paul_c> New version of Synergy
[16:46:16] <alex_joni> do you have a bugfixes file?
[16:46:24] <alex_joni> containing these descriptions?
[16:46:28] <paul_c> Oh, and Synaptic now works.
[16:47:18] <paul_c> Hmm... No change log - Perhaps I should add one to the CD....
[16:47:42] <alex_joni> I added a bdi-4.12.release file
[16:53:06] <paul_c> BDI-4.14 will be out at the end of the day.
[16:53:17] <alex_joni> coo
[16:56:35] <paul_c> 4.14 contains additional documentation.... EMC handbooks, Sherline instructions..
[16:58:07] <alex_joni> ok, say when I'll pull it off sherline's
[16:58:16] <alex_joni> and replace the 4.12
[16:58:38] <alex_joni> can you put the sources on some CVS?
[16:59:36] <alex_joni> maybe when you get back...
[17:05:00] <paul_c> I intend to update the SF emc2 tree with the code.
[17:05:46] <paul_c> but that is going to have to wait till the end of Feb.
[17:16:59] <alex_joni> sounds ok
[17:17:07] <alex_joni> by then I hope to have a 2.6 too ;)
[17:17:20] <alex_joni> so I can work on autoconf & what's needed on emc2 on 2.6
[17:57:24] <paul_c> Morning Steve.
[18:51:05] <CIA-7> 03alex_joni * 10rcslib/README: added a first version of README to rcslib
[18:54:49] <CIA-temp002> CIA-temp002 is now known as CIA-7
[18:58:17] <CIA-temp107> CIA-temp107 is now known as CIA-7
[19:30:09] <alex_joni> * alex_joni goes home
[19:30:10] <alex_joni> bye
[19:55:07] <paul_c> Coo... a 2.6.10 patch is now available for testing...
[20:15:25] <robin_sz> meeoup!
[20:15:32] <robin_sz> * robin_sz is happy ...
[20:15:36] <robin_sz> ish.
[20:15:51] <robin_sz> the new server has been restored to health .... Hurrah!
[20:16:03] <robin_sz> Debian is installing like a dream! Hurrah
[20:16:34] <robin_sz> it so piggin' noisy I can hear it from 2 rooms away. Thank $ deity its going to london!
[22:11:44] <acemi> i don't understand the STEPPING_TYPE in emc.ini. if i have 2 phases stepper motor and a stepper motor drive which uses the step and the direction signal, must I choose STEPPING_TYPE = 0 or STEPPING_TYPE = 1?
[22:12:16] <acemi> with freqmod.o
[22:13:14] <acemi> the description in emc.ini -> ; 0= drn,clock ; 1 == phase step ; 2 == table driven
[22:16:52] <cradek> 0
[22:17:38] <acemi> what is the phase step?
[22:19:06] <cradek> for other drivers that count on emc for phase generation (one signal for each coil in the motors)
[22:19:32] <robin_sz> mmmmm ... happy!
[22:19:42] <cradek> if your controller wants step/direction, you use 0 (or unspecified since it's the default)
[22:19:53] <acemi> hmm... thank you cradek
[22:20:05] <cradek> it doesn't really matter to emc what happens after the step/dir controller
[22:20:10] <cradek> welcome
[22:20:24] <robin_sz> ooh, look at these lines from 'top'
[22:20:40] <robin_sz> 3 root 18 19 0 0 0 S 0.0 0.0 0:00.00 ksoftirqd_CPU0 4 root 18 19 0 0 0 S 0.0 0.0 0:00.00 ksoftirqd_CPU1 5 root 19 19 0 0 0 S 0.0 0.0 0:00.00 ksoftirqd_CPU2 6 root 19 19 0 0 0 S 0.0 0.0 0:00.01 ksoftirqd_CPU3
[22:20:45] <robin_sz> tee hee :)
[22:21:12] <robin_sz> my goodness this box compiles quickly!
[22:21:32] <cradek> robin_sz: your first smp machine?
[22:21:49] <robin_sz> nah
[22:21:55] <robin_sz> but nice all the same.
[22:22:02] <robin_sz> much nicer now the engineer fixed it
[22:22:45] <robin_sz> theyjust replaced a processor.
[22:22:55] <robin_sz> and the mobo
[22:23:10] <robin_sz> memory, scsi card, raid driver
[22:23:23] <robin_sz> pci riser
[22:23:27] <robin_sz> and err
[22:23:40] <robin_sz> well, it still ahs the same sticky label on the back
