[00:31:00] <skunkworks> why am I not sleeping?
[00:31:51] <skunkworks> oh yah - the backup generator didn't transfer smootly back to the power company - so the whole plant was without power for an hour.
[00:32:06] <skunkworks> our ups's don't last that long

[08:29:05] <jthornton> 1.5.7 is up
[12:50:47] <kwallace1> I need to order different sizes of these, anyone know off hand the official name for these .1" connectors? https://dlnmh9ip6v2uc.cloudfront.net//images/products/8/0/9/9/Connectors.jpg
[12:56:30] <pcw_home> maybe Amp EI series or Molex (and a million clones)
[12:59:19] <pcw_home> (Molex KK 2.54 series)
[13:01:52] <pcw_home> kwallace1: did you notice that Andy Pugh added table mode support to the HM2 stepgen?
[13:04:45] <kwallace1> Thank you pcw_home. I'll have to make note of the stepgen.
[13:05:55] <Tom_itx> WM4201-ND
[13:05:59] <Tom_itx> for example
[13:06:14] <Tom_itx> err WM4202-ND for the 4 pin
[13:06:35] <Tom_itx> WM2002-ND for the plug
[13:08:44] <Tom_itx> WM2200-ND for the pins
[13:19:06] <kwallace1> Tom_itx, thank you this is looking like where I want to be: http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en?vendor=0&keywords=CONN+HOUS+.100+W%2FRAMP%2FRIB
[13:23:59] <kwallace1> I guess they offer this one: http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/0640160201/WM17552-ND/2074098
[13:24:14] <kwallace1> To make this one look like a bargan: http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/0638111000/WM9999-ND/243789
[13:44:57] <pcw_home> I wouldn't mess with anything but the cycle tool if its for commercial use
[13:44:59] <pcw_home> (and $130 is cheap)
[14:02:00] <kwallace1> Yeah, I suppose $130 is cheap, I'm more used to $300+ for a commercial crimper. Still... I wonder if I could just get the dies and make my own crimper? I usually only make a hand full of these kinds of crimps a year, but most of the cheap crimpers won't even make one decent crimp.
[14:16:42] <PCW> Yeah I think the last fancy crimper we got was around $400 (for Amp Mate-N-Lock) and we had to had them swap dies because the first one was made wrong :-(
[14:17:16] <alex_joni> micges: hi
[17:21:39] <ju-emb> Seb has lcnc with RTAI running on a 12.04. someone can point mi to the right repos for that, so I can try it out?
[17:30:56] <CaptHindsight> http://www.linuxcnc.org/seb/rtai-for-3.4-prerelease/
[17:31:47] <CaptHindsight> ju-emb: pretty sure that's the latest ^^
[17:32:48] <ju-emb> Thank's Cap
[17:37:58] <seb_kuzminsky> ju-emb: there's a better place
[17:38:14] <seb_kuzminsky> i meant to send out an email to the emc-users list but i spaced it...
[17:38:33] <seb_kuzminsky> the rtai kernel debs are available in the debian archive at www.linuxcnc.org now
[17:38:44] <seb_kuzminsky> the install process goes like this:
[17:38:53] <seb_kuzminsky> install ubuntu precise 12.04 i386
[17:39:07] <seb_kuzminsky> add 'deb http://www.linuxcnc.org precise base' to your apt sources
[17:40:11] <seb_kuzminsky> apt-get install linux-image-3.4.55-rtai-1
[17:40:23] <seb_kuzminsky> reboot, and make sure grub picks the rtai kernel
[17:40:37] <seb_kuzminsky> that's it! report any bugs on the emc-developers list
[17:41:49] <ju-emb> OK, thank's Seb I'll give it a shot
[18:11:08] <jepler> seb_kuzminsky: probably need a step to add the apt signing key so you don't get complaints about unauthenticated packages
[18:23:29] <seb_kuzminsky> oh yeah, thanks
[18:25:43] <seb_kuzminsky> ju-emb, jepler: my notes for the apt key says:
[18:25:46] <seb_kuzminsky> gpg --recv-key 8F374FEF
[18:25:55] <seb_kuzminsky> gpg --armor --export 'emc archive signing key' | sudo apt-key add -
[18:26:34] <seb_kuzminsky> do that before accessing the deb archive at www.linuxcnc.org
[18:27:27] <ju-emb> OK thanks for that,
[18:27:29] <ju-emb> ... still installing a fresh ubuntu
[18:34:23] <seb_kuzminsky> thanks for testing it, ju-emb! let me know what problems you run in to
[18:34:42] <seb_kuzminsky> oh, if you want you can run the precise rtai debs from the buildbot...
[18:35:03] <seb_kuzminsky> add 'deb http://www.linuxcnc.org precise master-rt' (or v2.5_branch-rt) to your apt sources
[18:35:06] <seb_kuzminsky> bbl
