[07:01:09] <skunkworks_> -8f on the way in...
[09:21:53] <seb_kuzminsky> brr
[09:22:24] <seb_kuzminsky> it's warmed up to 7F here
[09:23:10] <seb_kuzminsky> the winter clothes make my kids nearly spherical
[09:23:21] <seb_kuzminsky> they look like weebles
[09:29:21] <CaptHindsight> don't remind me
[09:31:01] <skunkworks_> 'i can't put my arms down'
[17:59:59] <mozmck> seb_kuzminsky, cmorley, how do these square LED's look? http://ibin.co/1n92Os3GYbpv
[18:00:58] <mozmck> I also modified the round LEDs to look brighter when on, and have a smaller reflection when off.
[18:01:24] <mozmck> Also, is there a test panel that has all the gladevcp widgets on it somewhere?
[18:19:02] <seb_kuzminsky> looks good mozmck
[18:23:22] <mozmck> thanks!
[18:37:17] <Tom_itx> sexy
[18:37:55] <Tom_itx> with a raised border around it, it could make a button as well
[18:38:08] <Tom_itx> ... that changed color when on / off
[18:41:38] <mozmck> Tom_itx: The square LED's?
[18:53:22] <Tom_itx> yep
[18:56:44] <cradek> mozmck: since reasonable people disagree about whether widgets should be glossy, would you consider calling the glossy versions a new name so we can make both camps happy?
[18:57:26] <Tom_itx> mozmck, the only one i'm aware of: http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gui/gladevcp.html#_a_quick_tour_with_the_example_panel
[19:07:03] <mozmck> cradek: yes, I didn't know if there would even be any interest, but I was thinking of making a new property for "shiny" or "flat"
[19:14:44] <cradek> perfect
[19:14:45] <cradek> thanks
[19:50:06] <cmorley> mozmck: ya that looks real good.
[19:51:14] <cmorley> no test panel with all on it nope. There is one gladevcp panel somewhere that has most of them.
[19:59:35] <Tom_itx> ^^ that's not it?
[20:20:11] <mozmck> That one does have most. It needs an oval LED, a meter, a jogwheel, and I think it would have them all.
[22:55:37] <seb_kuzminsky> the "hal_parport without parport_pc" but that Marius Liebenberg reported is because of a bug in rtapi in 2.7
[23:30:07] <memfrob> hi all, paolo sent me an email if i was working in kernel or userspace... which one does linuxcnc use for rtai?
[23:32:36] <seb_kuzminsky> kernel
[23:36:12] <memfrob> thanks :)
[23:36:45] <seb_kuzminsky> sure :-)
[23:36:52] <memfrob> paolo seems to be very unhappy about my new rtai tree, the war is taking place on rtai mailing list, i havent been spending too much time replying so ive just been cutting to the chase
[23:37:04] <seb_kuzminsky> i saw it
[23:37:07] <memfrob> LMAO
[23:37:51] <seb_kuzminsky> he's confused and/or concerned about some changes you made to context switching?
[23:38:02] <memfrob> yes
[23:38:07] <seb_kuzminsky> i didn't read it too closely as i dont know anything about that stuff
[23:38:32] <memfrob> the context switching i have in the tree now is closer to upstream ipipe than rtai and i notice no difference.
[23:39:11] <memfrob> and i dont know anything about that stuff either..
[23:39:41] <memfrob> thats why i asked him, and his reponse was basically that it shouldnt work.. so i dont think paolo has a good understanding of whats going on either
[23:39:52] <seb_kuzminsky> if your rtai code is more similar to the original ipipe code, that might be a helpful thing to point out to him?
[23:40:31] <memfrob> ok ill mention it in my next email.
[23:40:43] <memfrob> my commuication skills are horrible at times..
[23:41:15] <seb_kuzminsky> communication is certainly the hardest part of open-source development for me (too?)
[23:43:39] <memfrob> its even more difficult when hes asking technical questions that i dont know the answer to and the reason i emailed him in the first place was to get his insight xd
[23:43:43] <memfrob> *xd
[23:43:47] <memfrob> OMG XD
[23:43:57] <seb_kuzminsky> heh
[23:45:06] <memfrob> i havent used this keyboard in awhile.. everything feels off
[23:47:14] <KGB-linuxcnc> 03Sebastian Kuzminsky 052.7 e1f0c96 06linuxcnc 10src/rtapi/rtapi.h rtapi: fix release region * 14http://git.linuxcnc.org/?p=linuxcnc.git;a=commitdiff;h=e1f0c96
[23:47:41] <seb_kuzminsky> that should fix Marius' parport problem
[23:47:45] <seb_kuzminsky> good night folks
[23:47:48] <seb_kuzminsky> good luck memfrob !
[23:47:57] <memfrob> thanks you too!
