[09:55:49] <cradek> jepler: I can't get a fixed (?) sim/axis/lathe to start at all. motion doesn't seem to have any way to know how many/which axes are defined...?
[10:04:54] <kwallace> cradek, I put the new battery in my 214, but it seems to be running fast about five minutes a day. I guess I need to consider the diode hack?
[10:05:49] <jepler> cradek: :-/
[10:06:15] <jepler> if we want to see the new planner on the kandt today, I guess we should not do it on your merged branch that also has ja
[10:19:25] <CaptHindsight> any idea what "(no file)" means in the Axis taskbar after the Linuxcnc version number? Axis freezes at launch only when I launch Linuxcnc from the touchscreen, not using a mouse
[12:31:41] <CaptHindsight> Unity doesn't have the problem with freezing when launching using the touchscreen, only XFCE
[12:32:01] <CaptHindsight> figures :/
[13:46:50] <jthornton> cradek, seems the highlighting only works in the html docs and not the pdf

[17:02:30] <jepler> if someone is gung ho, please fix authorship to me and push to 2.6 branch assuming it applies ^^^
[17:02:36] <jepler> it's inconvenient for me to do so rightn ow
[17:02:39] <jepler> :-/

[22:08:15] <cradek> seb!
[22:08:33] <cradek> jthornton: spam? http://linuxcnc.org/index.php/english/forum/49-basic-configuration/27900-thc-config-that-works?start=10#47795
[22:15:12] <skunkworks_> seb_kuzminsky: we have decided 2.6 is a go... :)
[22:18:47] <skunkworks_> pcw_home: the new pid default behaviour is awesome...
[22:23:23] <cradek> skunkworks_: in the Updating page, I'm going to say that you probably only need to tweak FF1. Maybe that will make it less scary.
[22:25:53] <skunkworks_> sure
[22:26:09] <skunkworks_> it sure was good to see almost 1...
[22:42:08] <skunkworks_> z hasn't gotten any worse.. I remember there being around 2-3tenths of backlash when we first tested it
[22:42:33] <cradek> it's surprising that we can hear that tiny amount so plainly
[22:43:26] <skunkworks_> yes.
[22:43:44] <skunkworks_> and you only here it with z moves
[22:44:03] <skunkworks_> I think it is set to 15 iirc - could run it down to 12 like y
[22:44:11] <skunkworks_> or maybe it is 10...
[22:44:15] <skunkworks_> I would have to look
[22:44:37] <cradek> z sure followed nicely though
[22:44:44] <cradek> it's probably just fine
[22:45:21] <skunkworks_> yes - .0003 doesn't seem to effect tuning.. I wonder how big it would have to be before tuning would be impossible...
[22:45:43] <skunkworks_> *hear it
[22:45:52] <cradek> yeah, I wonder
[22:49:29] <skunkworks_> porbably helps that the servos are old and slow :)
[22:51:48] <skunkworks_> (and that they are velocity mode...)
[22:52:18] <skunkworks_> porbably?
[22:52:35] <skunkworks_> yikes
[22:55:09] <cradek> why do they always fold the toilet paper to a point?
[22:55:27] <skunkworks_> to show that they care?
[22:59:22] <Tom_itx> you feel better about it folded than left ragged from the last use don't you?
[22:59:57] <cradek> ummm, I guess I really don't care
[23:00:03] <cradek> I didn't know this was about my feelings
[23:00:13] <Tom_itx> you asked
[23:00:19] <cradek> it's true
[23:00:22] <Tom_itx> :)
[23:01:35] <Tom_itx> it's probaby in some etiquette book somewhere
[23:03:58] <Tom_itx> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotel_toilet_paper_folding
[23:04:02] <Tom_itx> just ask google
[23:05:28] <cradek> amazing
[23:05:34] <Tom_itx> haha
