[12:12:20] <brlcad> that's a lot of discussion about whitespace :)
[12:13:24] <brlcad> glad to see there's some interest ... looks like you need more though to me
[12:13:34] <brlcad> and not much time left, ugh
[13:20:10] <seb_kuzminsky> i was supposed to be camping for longer, but the weather drove us home (wind & rain)
[13:22:43] <cradek> :-/
[13:23:04] <seb_kuzminsky> it's ok, we'll try again this coming weekend
[13:23:10] <cradek> a dumber person would have stubbornly persisted
[13:23:20] <seb_kuzminsky> i may have to invest in a camping trailer for my wussy family
[13:23:36] <seb_kuzminsky> with a big screen tv and an xbox
[13:23:45] <cradek> I've got a bus for sale
[13:23:48] <seb_kuzminsky> heh
[13:24:18] <seb_kuzminsky> bbl
[13:35:24] <jepler> seb_kuzminsky: should I apply my terrible little patch to 2.6? http://emergent.unpythonic.net/files/sandbox/0001-axis-Don-t-bgerror-if-task_state-is-a-negative-numbe.patch
[14:24:02] <seb_kuzminsky> jepler: lol
[14:24:27] <seb_kuzminsky> maybe adda comment about the nuttiness inline, then sure, push it to 2.6
[14:24:34] <seb_kuzminsky> thanks for dealing with it, i was totally demoralized
[14:24:52] <jepler> Oh don't worry, I remain totally demoralized
[14:25:03] <seb_kuzminsky> we can take turns!
[17:14:05] <mozmck> If I have a value I want to pass from my component to another one (the gui in this case), and it is something that is read once and never changed, what is the best way to do this?
[17:16:45] <mozmck> I can use a HAL_Label and connect it's pin to one out of my component, but doesn't that get updated frequently?
[17:21:36] <mozmck> hmm, looks like I could use a hal RO parameter in my component and read it in the python handler code
