[08:50:10] <skunkworks> PCW, This is the j1800 running wheezy and the stock -rt kernel. http://electronicsam.com/images/KandT/testing/j1800.png
[08:50:29] <skunkworks> The 1900 with dual nics is a bit worse.. Letting it run
[08:50:50] <skunkworks> it is already up to 65us. (worse as in still very usable)
[09:37:45] <CaptHindsight> anyone try 3.12.22-rt34 kernel config: http://dpaste.com/22CPR57 32us latency, using llvmpipe 3D acceleration (not hardware / GPU) on Asus f2a85-v pro https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/F2A85V_PRO/, A10 5800K http://products.amd.com/en-gb/DesktopAPUDetail.aspx?id=44
[11:11:56] <cradek> It seemed pointless to make press tooling and only make two, so I made enough to satisfy worldwide demand for the next century. [picture of 6 parts]
[11:15:41] <skunkworks> andys gears?
[11:15:53] <skunkworks> *spockets
[11:16:03] <cradek> you guessed andy right, but it's the footboards
[11:16:34] <skunkworks> oh
[11:16:40] <skunkworks> link?
[11:18:15] <cradek> bodgesoc.blogspot.com
[11:20:20] <skunkworks> cool
[11:22:37] <skunkworks> wow
[11:22:50] <skunkworks> that gas tank roller is cool also
[11:29:20] <CaptHindsight> http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-c01nYL0FazY/U8hAvArQDcI/AAAAAAAAD9s/nIMg8V4ZpG8/s1600/IMG_1379.jpg for visual inspection of fuel level, no newfangled gauges for me
[11:56:52] <jepler> is that image (1379) heavily 'shopped? it looks .. unreal
[11:58:22] <archivist> it has had some bands unsoldered
[11:58:44] <archivist> so rusty and signs of heat
[12:05:09] <archivist> hmm dished ends... I made some tooling for a model tank dished end
[13:10:43] <skunkworks> it does look 3d-ish for some reason
[18:30:08] <memfrob> why does LinuxCNC ask for BLT when it doesn't need it?
[18:43:19] <micges-dev> memfrob: what's blt?
[18:51:55] <memfrob> some tcl / tk thing
[19:55:43] <andypugh> I am a bit puzzled by this: http://imagebin.ca/v/1Tna5i9PK3Rj
[19:56:18] <andypugh> I added a printf to Interp:find_tool_pocket.
[19:56:46] <andypugh> The tool table says that tool 1 is in pocket 11. But that isn’t hw interp sees it.
[20:20:32] <jepler> memfrob: latency plot and latency histogram programs use blt
[20:20:42] <jepler> scripts/latency-histogram: if [catch {package require BLT} msg] {
[20:20:48] <jepler> scripts/latency-histogram: blt::bitmap define nbmap {
[20:20:49] <jepler> ...
[20:21:35] <memfrob> ah ok thanks :)
[21:13:33] <cradek> andypugh: in nonrandom, the P in the tool table is treated kind of like a comment. the "pocket" you see in the interp is just an array index, and the tools are packed into that array without holes.
[21:19:16] <cradek> see tool_parse.cc near case 'P':
