[00:00:44] <malcom2073> [13:01:39] <IchGuckLive> XXCoder: its so hot at your place and dry like desert ? Cnn acording california at firer state
[00:00:51] <malcom2073> 7 hours ago
[00:00:55] <XXCoder> thanks
[00:01:13] <XXCoder> wrong part of usa heh but definitely hot
[00:04:09] -!- jduhls_ has quit [Ping timeout: 252 seconds]
[00:07:27] <MrHindsight> cold and rain here, but anything beats -15C and snow
[00:08:10] <Tom_itx> MrHindsight, i forgot what part of the world you were in
[00:08:28] <MrHindsight> windy city
[00:08:45] <Tom_itx> well! that's wichita for sure :)
[00:22:01] <ChuangTzu> yeah
[00:22:19] <ChuangTzu> i bike 15 miles every week day
[00:22:20] <XXCoder> where even wind has wind? ;)
[00:22:21] <ChuangTzu> rain or shine
[00:22:27] <ChuangTzu> and it's always a headwind
[00:22:48] <XXCoder> like uphill both ways? ;)
[00:28:25] <ChuangTzu> kinda
[00:28:29] <ChuangTzu> except this is actually possible
[00:28:45] <XXCoder> loop other way then :D
[00:28:46] <ChuangTzu> the wind switches directions in the middle of the day when i'm at work
[00:28:55] <ChuangTzu> :)
[00:29:23] <XXCoder> I used to have job I walked half a block to
[00:29:33] <XXCoder> but I screwed up. I wasnt reay for workl
[00:29:38] <XXCoder> ready to work
[00:29:59] <XXCoder> its been long time ago. dawn of internet and aol days

[00:49:58] <humble_sea_bass> when i was in college id bike from brooklyn to harlem, somethingf like 16 miles total each way, everything was fine until I reached harlem where the hills are craaaazy steep and at that point I'd just walk up the last 4 avenues up because a single speed bike couldnt do it
[00:51:08] <XXCoder> heh humble
[00:51:25] <XXCoder> reminds nme of one bike day hell day for me
[00:51:35] <XXCoder> I was going to end of one road (25 mile trip)
[00:51:54] <XXCoder> I arrived the end, but it was getting late, so I start heading back
[00:52:09] <XXCoder> well at mile 10 on return trip (or 35 miles total that point)
[00:52:10] <MrHindsight> you had bicycles with wheels, when we were in school .....
[00:52:23] <XXCoder> theres a nice park. with lots water areas/.
[00:52:32] <XXCoder> well know what comes out when its getting dim?
[00:52:39] <XXCoder> mostitoes. lots of em
[00:53:10] <humble_sea_bass> if you're shredding on your bike they don't have time to catch you
[00:53:31] <XXCoder> I couldnt slow down or they'd come on me. I had to use hat constantly while going max speed. I'm very good long bicycler but I am very weak on power
[00:53:45] <XXCoder> so after 2 miles I finally arrived city and away from water
[00:53:59] <XXCoder> I couldnt go on, there qwas 12 more miles or so lol
[00:54:01] <humble_sea_bass> the first day back to work after hurricane sandy
[00:54:07] <XXCoder> I ran out of energy
[00:54:55] <humble_sea_bass> there were no subways so my wife and I took a tandem bike into manhattan, all told that day we logged 40 miles going to our respective offices and back home
[00:55:14] <humble_sea_bass> also most of manhattan was dark dark dark
[00:57:21] <XXCoder> bet that was kinda spooky
[00:57:30] -!- FreezingCold [FreezingCold!~FreezingC@] has joined #linuxcnc
[00:58:21] <humble_sea_bass> it was really cool except for the few cab drivers you had to be uncivil to
[00:59:00] <humble_sea_bass> the best was crossing the manhattan bridge back, it was completely dark over the river, all you saw were the other blinky bike lights
[00:59:12] <XXCoder> wow
[00:59:22] <humble_sea_bass> then you reached the apex and go into brooklyns power grid, and everything was normal
[00:59:31] <humble_sea_bass> lights on and everything
[01:00:39] <zeeshan> jdh you there?
[01:00:43] <zeeshan> jdh jdh jdh jdh jdh
[01:00:44] <zeeshan> :D

[01:01:40] <zeeshan> http://i.imgur.com/nYImuUm.jpg
[01:01:45] <zeeshan> i can't modify those 2 holes
[01:01:48] <zeeshan> nor can i modify the slot
[01:01:50] <zeeshan> im SOL
[01:02:03] <zeeshan> i measured it properly, i need .175" of clearance.
[01:02:17] <XXCoder> any alternative design?
[01:02:24] <zeeshan> removing th eball screw theads will only remove 0.080 thou
[01:02:31] <zeeshan> and if i remove the remaining amnount from the 2 holes
[01:02:45] <zeeshan> ill only have .100 of meat left there which is too thin
[01:02:48] <zeeshan> XXCoder: i thinkso
[01:02:58] * Jymmm counts 7 holes
[01:03:17] <XXCoder> humble awesome link
[01:03:27] <zeeshan> http://i.imgur.com/nw7kPgh.jpg
[01:03:33] <zeeshan> Jymmm: sorry the 2 holes im talking about
[01:03:36] <zeeshan> are where the ball screw passes through
[01:03:45] <Jymmm> ah
[01:03:50] <zeeshan> im thinknig of buying a 7" longer ball screw
[01:03:58] <XXCoder> man I missed cectic when it was active webcomic. http://www.cectic.com/035/
[01:04:00] <zeeshan> and extending the whole cross slide 7"
[01:04:06] <zeeshan> that way the ball nut sticks out
[01:04:14] <XXCoder> is that expenive
[01:04:23] <zeeshan> the ball screw?
[01:04:31] <zeeshan> like 100 bux
[01:04:38] -!- jduhls has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[01:05:01] <Jymmm> zeeshan: What if...
[01:05:12] <Jymmm> You added an extender block..
[01:05:18] <zeeshan> where?
[01:05:40] <Jymmm> Bolt the block to the slide, then make the holes you need in the ext bloack
[01:06:11] <Jymmm> It won't give you the added length you want, but you won't have to fuck around trying to find 200thou either
[01:06:12] <zeeshan> problem is
[01:06:19] <zeeshan> the ball nut is touching the bottom of the slot it rides in
[01:06:23] <zeeshan> there is a .175" interference
[01:06:49] <Jymmm> grind the bitch down?
[01:06:57] <zeeshan> cant
[01:07:08] <zeeshan> if i remove more material from the bottom of the slot
[01:07:15] <zeeshan> ill expose one of the v-ways the block rids on
[01:07:17] <zeeshan> *rides
[01:07:21] <Jymmm> No no not the slot, the ballnut mount
[01:07:25] <zeeshan> ohh
[01:07:27] <zeeshan> i've grinded it down
[01:07:30] <zeeshan> as much as i can hehe
[01:07:38] <Tom_itx> ground
[01:07:55] <zeeshan> poor english is nice
[01:07:56] <zeeshan> :P
[01:08:08] <Jymmm> zeeshan: Well, stock up on lube then, cause you're fucked! Thank you and have a nice day =)
[01:08:13] <zeeshan> hahaha
[01:08:34] <Jymmm> ;)
[01:08:48] <zeeshan> im drawing up an alternative

[01:09:14] <Jymmm> you need that green bar in the middle?
[01:09:40] <zeeshan> yea
[01:09:44] <zeeshan> its a reinforcement bar
[01:09:50] <Jymmm> so?
[01:10:06] <zeeshan> so the triangular part of the ways don't flex under load
[01:10:28] <Jymmm> Fine..............
[01:10:32] <zeeshan> haha
[01:10:32] <jp_mill> pcw_home: around?
[01:10:35] <Jymmm> *rolls eyes*
[01:12:03] <Jymmm> zeeshan: how much space is under the leadscrew?
[01:12:33] <XXCoder> fast dilio http://interestingengineering.com/meet-the-worlds-fastest-bike/
[01:12:39] <zeeshan> .236"
[01:14:26] <Jymmm> zeeshan: Sorry man, I'm all out of ideas
[01:14:32] <zeeshan> hehe
[01:15:01] <Jymmm> buy a new lathe?
[01:15:10] <XXCoder> reprap
[01:15:17] <zeeshan> hahahah
[01:15:18] <zeeshan> you guys
[01:15:19] <zeeshan> :P

[02:26:02] <Jymmm> (seriously)
[02:27:57] <jp_mill> pcw_home: got the axis working but had to bypass the motor encoder.
[02:28:29] <pcw_home> strange
[02:28:49] <jp_mill> by bypass i mean add a second encode
[02:29:03] <XXCoder> Jymmm: physics
[02:29:24] <Jymmm> XXCoder: More specifically
[02:29:25] <XXCoder> you cant make or destroy energy
[02:29:41] <jp_mill> i had the same operation regardless if i took the encoder counts from the drive or straight from the botor
[02:29:49] <XXCoder> if your machine works, its tapping something new to science, but it is NOT "postive energy" machine.
[02:30:20] <Jymmm> XXCoder: E=mc^2 kinda says otherwise
[02:30:34] <XXCoder> so far, its impossible. Oil was postive energy till we understood it more.
[02:30:51] <XXCoder> uhh it just says energy equals to mass lightspeed squared
[02:31:00] <XXCoder> it states that mass is energy basically
[02:31:03] <Jymmm> XXCoder: If I stretch a spring, it will weight more. because it is storing energy.
[02:31:31] <XXCoder> exactly. but it is NOT making new energy or mass
[02:31:49] <XXCoder> you spent energy stretching it, its now expressed as mass
[02:31:49] <skunkworks_> that is what fission and fusion is for...
[02:31:54] <Jymmm> XXCoder: So, if mass is porpotional to energy in some aspects, why can't a "trnsfer one energy into another?
[02:32:16] <XXCoder> Jymmm: yes. but all claims of postive energy machines has always been bunk
[02:32:19] <Jymmm> or mass to energy and back
[02:32:36] <Jymmm> XXCoder: I'm not talking about snakeoil
[02:32:53] <XXCoder> well problem
[02:32:58] <XXCoder> there is ALWAYS losses
[02:33:03] <XXCoder> heat, vibration, so on
[02:33:10] <XXCoder> if you heard it run its losing energy
[02:33:41] <XXCoder> there is no zero sum running machine. its always negative unless running off stored energy in form of batteries, solar, or oil
[02:33:42] <humble_sea_bass> Jymmm: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermodynamics#Laws_of_thermodynamics
[02:33:55] <Jymmm> no, not loss, remember you just said that make or destory energy =)
[02:34:08] <XXCoder> Jymmm: uhh did you read?
[02:34:30] <Jymmm> humble_sea_bass: We don't need no stinkin badges
[02:34:32] <XXCoder> I said if you heard it run its losing energy because its converting energy to noise/vibration
[02:34:46] <XXCoder> zero loss in overall energy
[02:35:07] <XXCoder> zero gain too. but you cant keep all energy from machine back into it.
[02:35:17] <Jymmm> XXCoder: You are just saing what everyone else has always said, but it still does prove anything.
[02:35:20] <XXCoder> otherwise you'd be able to make windup that can wind it up
[02:35:58] <Jymmm> you are looking at this far too practical a perspective.
[02:36:07] <humble_sea_bass> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnot_cycle
[02:36:18] <XXCoder> even useless zero sum machines is impossible
[02:36:26] <humble_sea_bass> that's your best case scenario
[02:36:33] <XXCoder> because theres no such thing as no friction
[02:36:50] <Jymmm> light in a vacuum
[02:37:21] <Jymmm> where the friction there?
[02:37:34] <XXCoder> well light isnt losing any energy either and its not a machine
[02:37:49] <Jymmm> light IS energy, wheres the friction you speak of?
[02:38:10] <jdh> where is this vacuum
[02:38:24] <skunkworks_> what have I done....
[02:38:30] <XXCoder> well youre moving to area not even applicable to orginial debate of machines that run forever

[02:38:57] <humble_sea_bass> Jymmm: vacuum = absense of particles and mass and shit.
[02:39:18] <XXCoder> aka shaun's skull spaxe
[02:39:20] <XXCoder> space
[02:39:20] <Jymmm> humble_sea_bass: dumb blonde?
[02:39:23] <humble_sea_bass> even in a vacuum you are subject to gravitational forces
[02:39:40] <XXCoder> yeah. light is very strange thing.
[02:39:41] <Jymmm> humble_sea_bass: and gravity is energy
[02:39:42] <pcw_home> my vacuum is full of particles and shit
[02:39:44] <humble_sea_bass> and inconvenient things like the inverse square rule for unfocused light
[02:40:11] <pcw_home> (if you have rabbits thats a given)
[02:40:17] <humble_sea_bass> unless you can make a gravity engine that makes up become down
[02:40:22] <humble_sea_bass> then whatevers
[02:40:30] <XXCoder> humble light speed is light speed. even if youre traveling at 99.99999% light speed, you turn on flashlight, photons will leave it at light speed.
[02:40:55] <humble_sea_bass> light isn't that strange
[02:40:57] <Jymmm> humble_sea_bass: You sy gravity, but if the universe is expanding as they say it is, that would mean it's mass is storing enrgy just like that spring.
[02:41:21] <Jymmm> If so, where's is THAT enrgy coming from?
[02:41:48] <XXCoder> Jymmm: well thats where sciencists is still figuring. dark energy maybe
[02:42:08] <humble_sea_bass> its in the system, but you need differential potentials to do anything
[02:42:42] <Jymmm> Maybe it's from all those "apparently" perpetual motion machines really are working, just not as we expect them to be?
[02:42:59] <humble_sea_bass> no no no, in our time scale
[02:43:01] <Jymmm> s/motion/motin|energy/
[02:43:06] <humble_sea_bass> we see perpetual motion
[02:43:08] <XXCoder> lol assuming those machines is NOT scam
[02:43:29] <Jymmm> humble_sea_bass: Fuck our time scale, Ours is but the 4th dimension, what about all the other dimensions?
[02:43:41] <XXCoder> time is not 4th dimension
[02:43:43] <humble_sea_bass> that's like saying that the earth is not slowing down
[02:43:52] <XXCoder> thats why we say we live in 3d + 1 universe
[02:44:11] * Jymmm checks... Nope I don't see any earth skid marks... prove it's slowing down =)
[02:44:23] <humble_sea_bass> I'm sensing some shawn level trolling here. I'm gonna grab my bong and chill out
[02:44:49] <humble_sea_bass> my jimmie get russled when we talk perpetual motion
[02:44:50] <XXCoder> tell moon to stop slowing earth down then lol
[02:45:08] <Jymmm> No, your just not getting what I'm saying is all.... your still thinking in a practical perspective.
[02:45:24] <humble_sea_bass> I believe in cycles
[02:45:25] <XXCoder> do youre saying my brain should be in more... gullable condition?
[02:45:28] <Jymmm> you need to see/touch/feel before something "exists"
[02:45:47] <humble_sea_bass> I need to rip this bong before something exists

[02:46:07] <zeeshan> :P

[02:47:33] <Jymmm> XXCoder: That's also very narrow minded thinking
[02:47:36] <XXCoder> nah
[02:47:45] <Jymmm> Yeah, it really is.
[02:47:45] <XXCoder> less gullable thinking pattern
[02:47:52] <zeeshan> jdh, i figured out another way to do it
[02:47:57] <zeeshan> it's not as elegant..
[02:48:11] <XXCoder> zeeshan: if it works it works.,

[02:48:18] <jdh> hang the ballnut off teh back of the cross?
[02:48:22] <zeeshan> cyea
[02:48:24] <zeeshan> lol
[02:48:27] <jdh> heh
[02:48:30] <zeeshan> and just use 1 bellow
[02:48:34] <zeeshan> and call it a day
[02:48:36] <XXCoder> I see it being offset and longer
[02:48:51] <zeeshan> putting it in front or back of the cross slide
[02:48:52] <XXCoder> what is real world conquences of being longer?
[02:48:55] <zeeshan> gets in the way of the tail stock
[02:48:57] <jdh> I'd try taht if mine were milled all teh way through
[02:48:57] <zeeshan> and spindle
[02:49:06] <zeeshan> jdh bust out the angle grinder
[02:49:08] <zeeshan> :PPP
[02:49:20] <jdh> that's why I haven't bothered wiring up my motor
[02:49:24] <Jymmm> XXCoder: It's the whole send a twin off into spae at the speed of light for "five minutes" thing.
[02:49:41] <zeeshan> jdh just cut the end piece off
[02:49:44] <zeeshan> it doesnt do much
[02:49:53] <zeeshan> actually, maybe it does in your case
[02:49:55] <jdh> not just the end. half way
[02:49:57] <zeeshan> you could always drill a hole in it?
[02:50:02] <zeeshan> on the drill press?
[02:50:04] <zeeshan> its just a clearance
[02:50:09] <jdh> mine is tiny
[02:50:28] <zeeshan> XXCoder: power my lathe with perpetual motion
[02:50:32] <zeeshan> i hate paying for electricity
[02:50:46] <XXCoder> lol use spidle spinning to move axles
[02:50:56] <XXCoder> and vibration to spin spidle

[03:52:09] <XXCoder> why nbot both ways lol
[03:52:19] <XXCoder> theres that fancy machine that does that
[03:52:59] <MrHindsight> yeah depends on the tech, sloppy additive with cutting tools for cleanup
[03:53:18] <XXCoder> yeah
[03:54:01] <MrHindsight> like the MIG type wire machines that make blobs of metal that need to be machined into finished parts
[03:54:47] <XXCoder> someone linked me video of machine that welded pipe to have funnel with small pipe connectors around it
[03:55:04] <XXCoder> something that'd have to be cast or machined out of HUGE chunk of metal
[03:55:17] <MrHindsight> dmls + 5 axis mill

[04:00:30] <MrHindsight> can't machine

[04:00:48] <MrHindsight> you could print parts inside of parts and then close them up

[04:01:35] <XXCoder> wonder if first link (one with layers and weld) you could make working gears as is lol
[04:01:44] <XXCoder> meaning within case and allk
[04:02:12] <MrHindsight> sure, depends on the precision of the deposition
[04:02:18] <tjtr33> twincat cnc on the dmg-mori?
[04:02:27] <MrHindsight> you can with the powder SLS and mill
[04:02:28] <XXCoder> yeah. LOT of cnc stuff depends on precisionm.
[04:03:09] <tjtr33> that _is_ a pretty machine
[04:03:32] <MrHindsight> if you print gears you need that gap where they mesh or between bearing and race
[04:03:50] <XXCoder> and a way to properly drain it of that sandlike stuff
[04:04:07] <XXCoder> probably just holes
[04:04:38] <MrHindsight> but printing metal parts with different alloys in the same part is possible, but treating them for hardness is another story
[04:04:55] <MrHindsight> metal powder
[04:06:23] <MrHindsight> the part could then be placed in another 3d printer to have rubber handles printed on
[04:06:27] <MattyMatt> you could mix in tungsten carbide powder for hardness

[04:14:47] <MrHindsight> depends on the gas velocity
[04:15:42] <MrHindsight> if you fed a wire it would work just like brazing or gas welding
[04:15:54] <MattyMatt> arr
[04:16:26] <MattyMatt> so an arc would be just as useful? I've seen mig prints and they aren't pretty. they look like 100% clinker
[04:17:00] <MattyMatt> that might just be on the surface tho, I haven't seen one sawn in half
[04:17:07] <MrHindsight> they can be pretty or pretty ugly, depends on the conditions
[04:17:17] <tjtr33> add/sub mfctrs http://www.mmsonline.com/blog/post/additive-and-subtractive-together-including-by-retrofit cnvrt old cnc to new tech
[04:18:16] <XXCoder> http://www.3ders.org/articles/20140428-straw-based-3d-printer-filament-will-cost-half-the-price-of-pla.html interesting
[04:18:54] <MrHindsight> if you feed an FDM pellets then even PLA is ~$2/lb
[04:19:15] <MrHindsight> it's the goofy filament that has to be extruded first
[04:19:29] <XXCoder> yeah theres few projects that do exactly that
[04:19:41] <XXCoder> if I ever make printer I'll make it to use milk bottles plastic
[04:19:54] <MrHindsight> PET
[04:20:23] <MattyMatt> you can print with pellets if your printer is big enough to carry the screw extruder
[04:21:06] <MattyMatt> http://vimeo.com/33026239
[04:21:14] <XXCoder> wonder if you could combine extuder with printer head so you just pour pellets and it prints
[04:21:15] <MrHindsight> grind the pellets into powder and SLS them
[04:22:16] <MrHindsight> higher res and faster process
[04:22:25] <XXCoder> sls?
[04:22:34] <MrHindsight> laser sinter
[04:22:43] <XXCoder> ahh
[04:23:19] <XXCoder> I love how printing makes stuff previously impossible without triuck
[04:23:50] <MattyMatt> I think most of us are waiting for laser diodes to get cheap enough
[04:24:00] <MrHindsight> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wD9-QEo-qDk
[04:24:01] <MattyMatt> and big enough
[04:24:02] <XXCoder> just buy dvd drive
[04:24:21] <XXCoder> or scrap one from broken one (must be broken elsewhere)
[04:24:24] <tjtr33> MrHindsight, add/sub repair of turbine blades http://utwired.engr.utexas.edu/lff/symposium/proceedingsArchive/pubs/Manuscripts/2012/2012-62-Jones.pdf

[04:27:39] <MrHindsight> MattyMatt: so I have some time until there are several thousand know-it-alls with bad SLS designs being peddled in reprap?
[04:28:12] <MrHindsight> enjoying the peace
[04:28:32] <MattyMatt> not much. someone's getting an 8W fibre laser to try. if that works, it's time
[04:29:06] <MrHindsight> they always manage to screw it up somehow
[04:29:23] <MrHindsight> it's only been around for 20+ years
[04:29:26] <MattyMatt> no one gets out of here alivce
[04:30:30] <MrHindsight> then it's maker powder, maker lasers, maker galvos
[04:31:06] <MattyMatt> I'm reporting you to superawsome sylvia
[04:31:19] <MrHindsight> and everyone complaining about loss of vision, why the layers don't stick and the bad odors
[04:32:33] <XXCoder> yeah thats why while I want laser cutter I dont think I will have one :(
[04:32:49] <XXCoder> so much risk. as a deaf person I REALLY dont wanna damage my eyes
[04:33:08] <MattyMatt> lungs is your big worry
[04:33:16] <MrHindsight> the worst they could do with a glue gun was get blisters from the hot nozzles
[04:33:50] <MrHindsight> now it's going to be "I can't see of the laser is on"
[04:34:05] <XXCoder> grammar error included
[04:34:13] <MattyMatt> if you're deaf you should specialise in broaching
[04:34:16] <MrHindsight> heh
[04:34:21] <XXCoder> broaching?
[04:34:51] <MattyMatt> brute force cutting of gear teeth and square holes etc
[04:34:51] <MrHindsight> or maybe a punch press
[04:35:03] <XXCoder> matt guessing its real loud
[04:35:42] <MattyMatt> that's what I hear, excuse the expression
[04:37:19] <MattyMatt> reprap suffers from being desired as office equipment, but it needs a light workshop environment to be built and maintained
[04:38:05] <MattyMatt> kinda like computers
[04:39:05] <MrHindsight> passing fad, the hype only attracts people for so long, then when they realize they have been hoodwinked move on
[04:39:32] <MattyMatt> they might catch on in kitchens
[04:39:53] <XXCoder> the first assumation should be ALWAYS "it will be useless"
[04:40:20] <XXCoder> I assumed my cnc would be useless first. I decided to go for it anyway, for shit and giggles and build skills

[07:20:01] <Jymmm> The aluminum rail is good, the latch has a VERY strong spring, but the button and WX sealing isn't up to snuff.
[07:20:11] <Einar> It's the metal in the contacts (or coating). I like these cheap little LED flashlights. Good enough for a lot of things. But they develop bad battery contacts faster than a teenager does zits!

[14:36:21] <cradek> well I think they have mini-pci...?
[14:36:30] <cradek> so you can just plug it in, if you can find somewhere to put the antenna
[14:36:36] <Loetmichel> there IS a internal combo card wifi and 100Mbit rj45
[14:36:45] <Loetmichel> but you will loose the analog modem then

[14:37:55] <Loetmichel> anyways : this one ha no preinstalled wifi antenna

[14:38:54] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: I thought I saw the antenna, but I really didn't take it fully apart.

[15:41:44] <Loetmichel> cloning?
[15:41:55] <Jymmm> imaged it
[15:43:01] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: I use sysresccd.org and partimage on it.
[15:43:27] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: I LOVE that thing!!! Even has a netboot server =)
[15:43:53] <Loetmichel> i should have used the 100Mbit port and saved the iamge on the server here
[15:44:06] <Loetmichel> taht would have been faster than usb 1.1, right ;)
[15:44:25] <Jymmm> or just pulled the hdd and used IDE =)

[16:49:25] <IchGuckLive> what is the main goal you are trying to get about the state of pins
[16:49:47] <IchGuckLive> did you get some specific target like pendand

[16:50:55] <IchGuckLive> so you are stuck somewhere
[16:51:01] <deMimsy> but it requires having an individual callback function(value-changed) for each pin
[16:51:13] <deMimsy> Not stuck, jsut really dont like this implementation

[16:52:01] <deMimsy> yes
[16:52:04] <IchGuckLive> but this is triggering outside the system
[16:52:24] <IchGuckLive> so im asking ones more what pins are the target
[16:52:34] <IchGuckLive> spindle releaded
[16:52:49] <deMimsy> the pins are for individual keys on the pendant
[16:53:34] <IchGuckLive> this is on page 158 in integreater manual target is mdi and direct action
[16:53:52] <IchGuckLive> there is also a pin for giveing the state back of all haluii
[16:54:15] <IchGuckLive> this state pins are ypour goal
[16:54:57] <deMimsy> i am not familiar with that manual, do you have a link to it?

[17:10:25] <deMimsy> just trying to find if there is a "hal_pin.name()" function or similar
[17:11:07] <IchGuckLive> normal way is direct the hal signal to yoour python and read it out by a function #
[17:12:01] <IchGuckLive> so your custompostgui does get the signal to your python where you can access it
[17:12:25] <deMimsy> yes, i get the signal
[17:12:45] <deMimsy> this has been confirmed with prints/debugging
[17:13:20] <IchGuckLive> and then the python gives back another siognal towards the pistgui and halui
[17:13:32] <IchGuckLive> and the statereport is the full close lop
[17:14:13] <deMimsy> python just checks to see if that signal is high or not, and prints a message accordingly
[17:14:54] <deMimsy> if i could find the python file that has the "get" function, that would help too
[17:15:16] <IchGuckLive> there is no get function needed
[17:16:49] <IchGuckLive> import hal
[17:17:07] <IchGuckLive> c = hal.component("mimsky")
[17:17:20] <IchGuckLive> c.newpin("xpos",hal.HAL_FLOAT, hal.HAL_IN)
[17:17:25] <IchGuckLive> thats all
[17:17:48] <IchGuckLive> then you can do in python what you want
[17:18:30] <IchGuckLive> you diraect the pin thru a privat component callet mimsky

[21:17:59] <CaptHindsight> pcmcia ---> LPT should be fine
[21:18:08] <CaptHindsight> is this a laptop?
[21:18:33] <Nebukadneza> yes, we originally planned to connect it to a (over)used old small netbook
[21:18:38] <CaptHindsight> laptops have power management issues that impact real time
[21:18:56] <CaptHindsight> run the latency test on the LiveCD
[21:19:00] <Nebukadneza> mh, thats a good argument
[21:19:02] <Nebukadneza> yes, will do that
[21:19:29] <CaptHindsight> new laptops are pretty zippy with how they handle ACPI on the EC

[21:19:43] <Nebukadneza> zippy? (sorry, not english native...)
[21:19:56] <Nebukadneza> i guess thats a positive attribute?
[21:20:01] <_methods> hell i speak english native and i have no idea wtf that means lol
[21:20:05] <CaptHindsight> old laptops EC (embedded controller) connect over slow links and tend to have really poor latency numbers
[21:20:14] <CaptHindsight> zippy = quick or fast
[21:20:22] <Nebukadneza> ah, ok ;)

[21:21:53] <Nebukadneza> i didn't buy -.- $friend bought it without reading enough ;P
[21:21:55] <_methods> 6560, power supply and 4 motors
[21:21:57] <Nebukadneza> now we're stuck with it for now
[21:22:01] <_methods> ouch
[21:22:03] <Nebukadneza> ididntpay ;P
[21:22:07] <_methods> good for you
[21:22:10] <Nebukadneza> ack
[21:22:12] <_methods> bad for your friend
[21:22:24] <Nebukadneza> anyways, shouldn't be 100% bad if we can get it to run
[21:22:45] <Nebukadneza> okay, sooo ... next step is to have him dig up the laptop, check for native parport, check for pcmcia, if not -> grab ne pc
[21:23:02] <Nebukadneza> if it has either, run latency test with most power management from bios disabled and PSU connected
[21:23:10] <Nebukadneza> then either be happy or -> grab new (old!) pc

[21:57:24] <Nebukadneza> say ... if usb is generally not realtime, how do these usb->mach* breakout board thingies work?
[21:57:45] <Nebukadneza> do they have some kind of logic where you send a batch of n commands with their timing information, and they somehow realize the exact timing on a uC or similar?
[21:58:52] -!- ravenlock [ravenlock!~ravenlock@enlightenment/developer/ravenlock] has joined #linuxcnc
[22:04:20] <cradek> yes exactly - they have an external timing source and they queue up some motion
[22:05:05] <Nebukadneza> okay
[22:05:31] <Nebukadneza> so with something like: http://www.poscope.com/PoKeys56U i wouldn't have to worry about any kind of timing issues on pc side, right? including fucked up power management on laptops?
[22:06:04] <cradek> are you asking a question about using mach?
[22:06:42] <Nebukadneza> i'm not sure yet how all those control schemes (mach, emc2, kcam) differ ;/
[22:06:57] <Nebukadneza> my driver pcb thingy with parport states to support all of them oO
[22:07:13] <witnit> flexibility mostly, each have their pros and cons
[22:07:18] <cradek> then I recommend you don't buy hardware until you know what you're trying to do exactly
[22:07:31] <cradek> I believe that pokeys is a hid
[22:07:41] <cradek> it's unlikely to be the best way to do ... anything with linuxcnc
[22:07:47] <Nebukadneza> see above, a friend bought the stuff already without proper reading, now turning to me to help getting it to run ;)
[22:08:03] <Nebukadneza> mh, ok
[22:08:05] <cradek> argh, that leads to suffering.
[22:08:08] <Nebukadneza> yes ;[
[22:08:17] <Nebukadneza> still, i want to make the best of the situation
[22:10:19] <Nebukadneza> okay, if i can't get him to dig up another old computer with hardware parport, i'll start reading into those "buffered" breakout boards that do their own timing for motion control signal
[22:10:25] <witnit> I think you should have no problem getting it to run, worst case scenario you ditch the controller and switch to something familiar from the mesa line
[22:10:35] <cradek> that German Noun device oughta just plug into a parallel port and work with a basic configuration like what you can make with stepconf
[22:11:30] <Nebukadneza> mh yeah, assuming we can find a computer with native parport and no timing issues ;)
[22:11:38] <cradek> oh that's trivial
[22:11:45] <witnit> you will find it
[22:11:46] <cradek> any junk computer will work fine
[22:11:56] <Nebukadneza> hehe, yeah, he has got a broken one and i have a spare amd be-2300 mainboard
[22:12:00] <cradek> I have a pile of ten in the recycle pile at work
[22:12:04] <Nebukadneza> summing up its a working box with parport ;)
[22:12:05] <cradek> you can have one
[22:12:08] <CaptHindsight> whats the Linuxcnc install procedure for 14.04?
[22:12:12] <Nebukadneza> haha ;)
[22:12:16] <Nebukadneza> where do you live, cradek?
[22:12:18] <cradek> CaptHindsight: there isn't one
[22:12:24] <cradek> Lincoln NE US
[22:12:32] <cradek> stop by anytime :-)
[22:12:38] <CaptHindsight> looks like 3-4 dependency issues
[22:12:40] <cradek> but you can probably find one closer to you just as easily
[22:12:40] <Nebukadneza> i'd guess shipping is more expensive than a new non-junk computer locally ;P
[22:12:45] <cradek> yep!
[22:12:57] <Nebukadneza> anyways, that won't happen today anymore..., so i'm stopping to bug you, as i understood what i need to know for know
[22:12:58] <CaptHindsight> when trying to use the precise packages
[22:13:17] <cradek> CaptHindsight: that's pretty normal when using packages for one system on another
[22:13:19] <Nebukadneza> especially the difference between "dumb" usb breakouts and bufferd ones ;)
[22:13:30] <cradek> don't use usb anything
[22:13:41] <Nebukadneza> ideally ;P
[22:13:45] <CaptHindsight> PCW: what was the workaround for the dependencies for 14.04
[22:13:56] -!- Einar has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[22:14:01] <Nebukadneza> oh, one last questions .. does the linuxcnc livecd image work when simply DD-ed to a usb stick?
[22:14:21] <CaptHindsight> cradek: yeah, but a few have it going, just trying here for the 1st time
[22:14:24] <cradek> Nebukadneza: no - you have to use the "startup disk creator" in ubuntu or similar
[22:14:37] <Nebukadneza> ok
[22:14:55] <CaptHindsight> i thought someone said the precise repo worked
[22:14:56] <cradek> CaptHindsight: surely it'll work fine if you build it
[22:15:17] <CaptHindsight> maybe that's what they had to do
[22:15:41] <CaptHindsight> just checking since nothing went easy on this so far
[22:15:59] <cradek> on debian 7 I built packages very easily
[22:16:12] <cradek> I just can't recommend ubuntu anymore
[22:16:29] <CaptHindsight> graphics render slower than complete software rendering at 33mhz
[22:16:42] <CaptHindsight> yeah, we hate it here
[22:16:54] <cradek> my experience is software rendering always works reliably and plenty fast enough for AXIS
[22:17:10] <cradek> it's just some lines, not a video game
[22:17:37] <CaptHindsight> for some reason ubuntu did something really weird for AMD
[22:17:54] <witnit> I payed $5 for the computer I use as my cnc, the second lpt port I added was 5.99 plus shipping though ahhahaha
[22:18:01] <cradek> hah
[22:18:08] <CaptHindsight> on kernel needs KMS and others don't work with it
