[00:07:30] <taiden> I feel like every person has a maximum capacity for maine lobster
[00:07:34] <taiden> or lobster period
[00:07:40] <taiden> i reached mine two lobsters ago
[00:07:46] <taiden> i prefer to eat mussels

[00:11:31] <andypugh> In their favour, it is hard for a mussel to look at you reproachfully like a fish, lobster or (especially) octopus can.

[00:12:02] <taiden> We generally name our lobsters after politicians
[00:12:07] <taiden> before cooking
[00:12:22] <taiden> makes it easier to handle the horror of steaming something alive
[00:12:27] <andypugh> I don't think I could ever eat an octopus, I like them too much.
[00:12:44] <taiden> sarah palin seems to be a common lobster around this house
[00:14:36] <andypugh> I still think SP is fairly cute, but it terrifies me that anyone so dumb can have any power.
[00:16:02] <andypugh> (Of course, I don't know her, and she might have been unfairly maligned on the Internet, the UK Press, the US Press, the TV, the radio...)

[00:32:24] <djdelorie> refresh?
[00:32:38] <andypugh> I have
[00:33:12] <andypugh> And sserial.c has been there for a year or more, and is the file I am working on
[00:33:33] <Tom_L> did your recent fix change your rights?
[00:33:55] <Tom_L> <andypugh> Aha! Netatalk update has made things (not so) nice again
[00:33:57] <Tom_L> :)
[00:34:03] <djdelorie> any options for "hide makefile-generated files" or "only show group-writable files" ?
[00:34:18] <djdelorie> or "sort by some wierd field"?
[00:34:39] <andypugh> Possibly, it is notable that sserial .c has different rights
[00:34:48] <andypugh> (and they are sorted by name)
[00:36:18] <Tom_L> that's one thing that irritates me about linux is all the rights on a single user pc
[00:38:31] -!- erictheise has quit [Quit: erictheise]
[00:38:36] <alex4nder> DOS
[00:38:38] <alex4nder> is an option
[00:38:53] <Tom_L> i still use 6.22
[00:40:37] -!- Tom_L has quit []
[00:40:53] <andypugh> I see 6.22 as a hypermodern DOS. Doesnt that one allow spaces in filenames? (grudgingly)
[00:41:07] <Tom_itx> i don't think so
[00:41:12] <Tom_itx> i never really tried
[00:41:21] <andypugh> I think you need to use quites
[00:41:23] <Tom_itx> still the 8.3 file length
[00:41:30] <andypugh> Or quoits
[00:41:54] <Tom_itx> i've only got a couple programs i use it for
[00:42:00] <andypugh> Quoits are more fun than quotes, you see
[00:42:33] <Tom_itx> you see so much txting anymore it's hard to say what's misspelled
[00:44:02] <andypugh> Regardless of spelling, that's a really wierd use of "anymore" there. Is that a common use in the US?
[00:44:37] -!- taide1 has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[00:44:40] <Tom_itx> or misspelled mistyped
[00:44:42] <djdelorie> djgpp under ms-dos lets you use long file names, if you run the LFN extension driver
[00:46:01] <andypugh> No, the dictionary is with you " an·y·more   [en-ee-mawr, -mohr] Show IPA
[00:46:01] <andypugh> adverb
[00:46:03] <andypugh> 1.
[00:46:04] <andypugh> any longer.
[00:46:05] <andypugh> 2.
[00:46:06] <andypugh> nowadays; presently."
[00:47:19] <andypugh> I would be perfectly happy with "presently" or "nowadays" in your sentence. It seems that the word means more than I thought it did.
[00:49:07] <andypugh> Though it does seem to be normally limited to negative constructions, ie things that no longer eventuate, rather than which do.
[00:49:24] <andypugh> I can stop if nobody else finds this interesting.
[00:49:36] <Tom_itx> language is interesting
[00:49:47] <Tom_itx> english is crap but it's what we have
[00:50:03] <skunkworks__> it doesn't seem that odd... but it is at the fringe
[00:50:34] <andypugh> Hmm: In some dialects, chiefly South Midland in origin, it is found in positive statements meaning “nowadays”: Baker's bread is all we eat anymore. Anymore we always take the bus. Its use at the beginning of a sentence is almost exclusive to speech or to representations of speech
[00:50:42] <Tom_itx> one pc is too slow (poor latency) the other i can't seem to get linux to load on

[00:51:13] <Tom_itx> i have one
[00:51:27] <Tom_itx> these are just sitting here though
[00:51:28] <andypugh> So, Tom_itx: Are you from Birmingham (not the one in Alabama)?
[00:51:34] <Tom_itx> no
[00:51:37] <Tom_itx> why?
[00:51:46] <Tom_itx> i've been thru there though
[00:51:57] <Tom_itx> not a place you want to stop
[00:52:15] <Tom_itx> i'm in the central US, Kansas

[01:02:19] <djdelorie> I never said I could make a cannon...
[01:03:03] <r00t4rd3d> i could make a 22 cannon with a piece of round steel and my drill press

[01:05:45] <andypugh> Oh, I meant to say, you might find Oak cuts more cleanly
[01:06:19] <r00t4rd3d> they only have oak plywood at lowes
[01:06:36] <r00t4rd3d> the edges can fray easily
[01:06:43] <andypugh> That's not really the same thing

[01:16:18] <r00t4rd3d> i know one amish guy that sells ruff cut pine boards but dont know if he has oak or some shit
[01:16:40] <Tom_itx> there used to be a local guy that had nearly every kind of veneer you could think of
[01:16:51] <Tom_itx> some very rare
[01:17:20] <r00t4rd3d> yeah there is no guys like that around here that i know of , sure there is
[01:17:43] <Tom_itx> i'm not sure if he's still around
[01:18:04] <Tom_itx> he didn't really have a shingle on the front of the building
[01:18:05] <r00t4rd3d> i know one normal guy who deals with strictly oak for cabinets
[01:18:27] <r00t4rd3d> and he charges up the ass for it
[01:19:02] <r00t4rd3d> but its all flat, straight, good grain, etc
[01:19:49] <r00t4rd3d> hmm now that i think of it he is a Mennonite.
[01:20:17] <r00t4rd3d> his wife wears that bonnet getup
[01:21:47] <r00t4rd3d> i like when religious people come to my door, most times buy the time the first bong is gone, so are they!
[01:27:28] <jdh> they smoke and run?
[01:27:50] <r00t4rd3d> the ones who stay get asked to recite Peter 2:18 or a couple other fucked up verses i know of
[01:27:56] <r00t4rd3d> i smoke, they run.
[01:30:04] <jdh> things like that don't bother the real fundie true believers. They just cherry pick the parts they like and say you don't understand the others.
[01:31:44] <r00t4rd3d> anyone who can read the bible cover to cover and still devote their lives to it has got to be some kind of messed up in the brains

[02:18:23] <geo01005> any body have any ideas/ tools to correct for the diameter of the touch probe tip when doing 3d surface probing?
[02:19:48] <jdh> closest you could get would be to subtract the radius from whatever direction you were probing?
[02:20:23] <jdh> but, if you Z probe and it makes, you don't know if it hit bottom or a sloped side.
[02:20:54] <Tom_itx> could you enter it as a tool with a diameter offset?
[02:21:30] <geo01005> yes, that is what I'm talking about, the slope of the surface could be estimated with the points probed next to the point in question.
[02:21:45] <jdh> only if you knew it was a slope.
[02:22:38] <jdh> I think that would be a function of point cloud smoothing or something?

[02:25:42] <geo01005> Well you need to have the real contact point before you fit a surface to the point cloud.
[02:26:10] <geo01005> When you fit a surface to a point cloud it is already assumed that you want the points to lie on the surface.
[02:28:07] <Tom_itx> have you tried entering it as a tool with diameter offset? then when you probe, Tx M6 to select it
[02:28:29] <geo01005> Well the probe is spherical, not just a cylinder.
[02:28:53] <Tom_itx> i don't know how linuxcnc handles ballnose em surface contouring
[02:29:00] <Tom_itx> but it would be similar

[02:37:17] <Tom_itx> the tool table could have a nose radius for path compensation but it doesn't
[02:37:27] <Tom_itx> that would help here i believe
[02:39:37] <jdh> I don't think you could apply tool compensation to probing
[02:41:36] <Tom_itx> there should be a way to describe the tool diameter and tip
[02:41:45] <Tom_itx> whether it's probing or cutting
[02:42:34] <Tom_itx> it's not an issue for me when cutting since my cad cam compensates for the tool shape

[02:46:56] <skunkworks__> can
[02:46:59] <skunkworks__> can
[02:47:32] <skunkworks__> can't you just connect the dots and offset it by the probe radius?
[02:48:01] <Tom_itx> it's not as easy on a contoured surface as the probe touches different angles as it probes
[02:48:42] <Tom_itx> and you need to apply the geometry to both axis in the path properly
[02:49:01] <skunkworks__> I would think it would be as accurate as the probe density..
[02:50:00] <jdh> probably close, but on a steep slope, it might be off more?
[02:50:34] <Tom_itx> it's not as big a deal if you know the surface you are touching off. for example when you use it for edge finding on a vise you know it's going to be x or y
[02:53:23] <skunkworks__> right (best thing ever) :)
[02:54:18] <Tom_itx> just use a laser beam instead

[05:06:04] <taiden> i'm excited then
[05:06:11] <taiden> should solve a lot of problems
[05:06:27] <taiden> i got insane video artifacts today in the middle of a cut
[05:06:46] <taiden> lost enough steps to put my bit right into a steel fastener I use on my jig
[05:07:04] <taiden> was like 2 inches off where it should have been
[05:07:27] <r00t4rd3d> intel atom d525
[05:07:31] <taiden> today has been a total nightmare
[05:08:09] <taiden> yeah i need to be cutting yesterday though, i had an amazon wishlist all ready but the amazon prime dealer with the d525mw sold out
[05:08:35] <r00t4rd3d> http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-D525MW-Mini-ITX-Motherboard-w-Atom-525-CPU-/200542103383?pt=Motherboards&hash=item2eb13da757
[05:08:36] <taiden> i had considered getting a d525 barebones PC but didn't know if they would work out
[05:09:27] <r00t4rd3d> are you using nvidia proprietary drivers?
[05:09:28] <taiden> thanks for the ebay ad
[05:09:31] <taiden> nope
[05:09:32] <taiden> vesa
[05:09:33] <taiden> but
[05:09:34] <taiden> it's hardware
[05:09:44] <taiden> if i tap the case i get insane video artifacts
[05:09:54] <taiden> i cleaned everything out today and it was fine for a few hours
[05:10:26] <r00t4rd3d> sounds like something is lose
[05:10:30] <taiden> yes
[05:10:40] <taiden> i think the pins in the agp slot are wonky
[05:10:53] <taiden> it's really strange
[05:10:55] <r00t4rd3d> bend them out with a pin
[05:11:19] <taiden> if the p4 doesn't work out i'll give it a go
[05:11:22] <taiden> that computer is really odd
[05:11:34] <taiden> randomly crashes, caps look fine, powersupply is brand new
[05:11:37] <r00t4rd3d> d525 just work
[05:11:45] <r00t4rd3d> all you need is memory for them
[05:12:05] <taiden> i was reading about someone on the linuxcnc forums who was getting like 20k latency with his
[05:12:08] <taiden> which kind of weirded me out
[05:12:15] <taiden> maybe it was 12k
[05:12:34] <taiden> but it's def top of the list
[05:12:48] <taiden> had it been available on amazon prime i would have ordered a new box todya

[05:14:04] <r00t4rd3d> fill it with mem for 14 bucks
[05:15:01] <taiden> yeah
[05:15:08] <taiden> then ssd and case :)

[05:18:55] <taiden> you can reliably run ubuntu off a usb thumb drive?
[05:19:45] <taiden> doesn't that cause issues with limited block rewrites ?
[05:19:48] <r00t4rd3d> never tried

[05:34:32] <taiden> and the case i could be all in for about $120
[05:35:03] <taiden> whats the dela with the power supply for the d525?
[05:35:21] <taiden> i have an atx 450 watt that i just bought but i imagine it would be overkill and too big

[05:43:33] <r00t4rd3d> it would work

[05:45:05] <r00t4rd3d> that is what you are seeing, you just use a wall wart with them
[05:45:39] <r00t4rd3d> just allows you to use a smaller case, less heat, etc.

[13:37:40] <Jymmm> skunkworks: Maybe you'll know; Are these basically both the same? I'm looking to cleanly cut 30ga (0.10) sheet stock... benchtop: http://www.print1.co.uk/DM9000%20&%20DM9001.%20copy.jpg - VS- benchmount: http://productimages.grainger.com/is/image/Grainger/4YG37_AS01?rect=0,512,528,811&scl=1&id=24ptX1 both being 12"
[13:37:44] <archivist> fixing/making docs is a good self teaching system :)
[13:38:00] <Jymmm> 0.010"
[13:39:02] <skunkworks> the dayton one looks a lot better IMHO
[13:39:12] <Jymmm> There's a huge price difference between the two...
[13:39:19] <skunkworks> I bet
[13:39:24] <Jymmm> http://www.use-enco.com/CGI/INPDFF?PMPAGE=577&PARTPG=INLMK3&PMITEM=130-5700
[13:39:42] <Jymmm> top and bottom of that page... $100 vs $500
[13:39:49] <skunkworks> the first ones looks like a glroified paper cutter
[13:40:03] <Jymmm> yeah
[13:40:25] <Jymmm> But it specifically states for cutting what I want.
[13:40:27] <archivist> I use paper scissors on tinplate
[13:40:49] <Jymmm> archivist: I'm getting a wave effect on the cut edge
[13:40:49] <skunkworks> for .010 - it will probably work ok..
[13:40:54] <archivist> large metal shears are useless for thin plate

[13:41:29] <Jymmm> archivist: explain 'useless'?
[13:41:55] <archivist> folds between the blades instead of cutting
[13:43:20] <Jymmm> archivist: I understand what you're saying, but that last link I gave at the bottom of it's page specifcally states 0.020" material
[13:43:45] <skunkworks> we have a old shear that cuts thin stuff just fine. (well - on the sharp end ;) )
[13:44:04] <Jymmm> skunkworks: like the benchmount I showed?
[13:44:17] <skunkworks> no - old floor model
[13:44:33] <Jymmm> skunkworks: but not like the paper cutter looking one
[13:44:33] <archivist> you have to keep them adjusted for thin work
[13:44:45] <JT-Shop> and sharp
[13:45:40] <Jymmm> archivist: adjusted like once (a year) or so, or more frequently? I dont intend on cutting thicker stuff
[13:46:42] <Jymmm> I tried cutting using scissors, but I get a scalloped effect on the cut edge.
[13:47:17] <archivist> sharpness and angle etc matters
[13:47:41] <archivist> and I roll the edge after
[13:48:39] <Jymmm> archivist: have a pic by chance?
[13:49:45] <archivist> of what http://www.collection.archivist.info/archive/DJCPD/PD/2010/2010_07_27_tinware/IMG_0797.JPG
[13:50:29] <archivist> and the other pic the directory, .009" iirc

[13:52:32] <archivist> I use a ball race and a sheet of steel as an anvil to flatten
[13:53:18] <archivist> the tin bath has a cheating rolled edge (wire soldered on)
[13:54:06] <Jymmm> Ok, so basically you are "folding over" the material to have a clean finished edge?
[13:54:26] <archivist> no I flatten....
[13:55:06] <archivist> the curve from cutting is what I flatten
[13:55:16] <Jymmm> ah
[13:55:49] <archivist> you can also hold very close to the shear to get less bend
[13:58:33] <Jymmm> archivist: by bend, you mean curve in the overall length of the material that's being cut?
[13:59:36] <archivist> and the curve at right angles to that (edge curve)
[14:00:09] <Jymmm> oh, ok. I'm looking at a piece I cut and see what you're talking about now.

[17:31:08] <syyl> technical is a wide range
[17:31:48] <zoni1983> i want to retrofit a hurco with analogue drive and 2500 ppr encoder
[17:32:25] <zoni1983> can any one suggest what should i use vital or mesa
[17:36:04] <archivist> most in here would probably say mesa, dunno who vital is
[17:36:33] <zoni1983> vitalsystem montenc-lite
[17:37:04] <skunkworks> I vote mesa
[17:37:28] <skunkworks> I have used their hardware and am very happy with it.
[17:37:45] <zoni1983> what rapid can i get with 2500 ppr
[17:38:01] <archivist> enough
[17:38:30] <archivist> servo and mass effect your rapids
[17:38:45] <IchGuckLive> mesa 5i25 7i77
[17:39:36] <skunkworks> that is not the right question. The mesa hardware can count your encoders into the mhz...

[17:42:30] <zoni1983> which daughter card 7i77

[19:16:26] <taiden> anythig worth mentioning about it before i dive in?
[19:16:52] <L84Supper> also check if there is coreboot support, but it will require some effort even if it is supported
[19:17:37] <L84Supper> it's always best to have a backup flash device for BIOS
[19:18:30] <taiden> i suppose i could run it from a livecd?

[20:52:05] <Loetmichel> let me put it this way: knowing the fame of your employer as being coser to a government agency than a company, i had heard of a fire evacuation test which faliled. and the fireman sees the employees leaving after work: "we should had ringed "end of work", not "fire alarm"... the building is completely emty at two minutes after the horn ?!?"
[20:52:34] <Loetmichel> JT-Shop: should i lend you mine?

[23:27:44] <andypugh> Management don't seem to realise that it's all very well putting two shifts in the dyno to get the program back on track, but they still only have one engineer to provide the tests.

[23:35:25] <Jymmm> FWIW... aluminum flashing at the big orange borg has a flammable coating on it =)
[23:35:33] <andypugh> The dyno is fully instrumented and environmental, ie it can control the ambient air, intake air, water and coolant from -30C to 30 ambient / 120 water/oil.
[23:36:17] <Jymmm> andypugh: Sure, but can it take you to the party in style though?
