[08:47:07] <jepler> g-d it, why did I get into a license discussion again
[08:48:38] <skunkworks> Oh - I know! 'Because you replied to the list'
[08:59:14] <skunkworks> too soon?
[09:19:13] <cradek> yeah, pretty sure this one was your fault
[09:20:37] <cradek> man I wish folks would read the GPL2 (it's ONE page, people) before commenting/accusing/questioning
[09:55:12] <ssi> that's an awful lot of pages
[10:09:37] <jepler> pretty sure saying it's one page is a slight exaggeration
[10:09:46] <jepler> my terminal is 77 lines tall and it doesn't display the whole thing at once
[10:10:04] <jepler> but it's easier reading than anything by John Steinbeck

[10:48:15] <cradek> yay!

[10:57:41] <skunkworks> has anyone looked at rob's reverse run - to see if we could put it into master?
[10:58:58] <skunkworks> https://github.com/jepler/linuxcnc-mirror/compare/master...robEllenberg:feature/reverse-run-master
[11:03:36] <seb_kuzminsky> cradek: i'm going to start erplying to every email i get with "Whatever it is, I'm pretty sure it doesn't even have a point."
[11:10:55] <cradek> on emc-users that would usually be a fine strategy
[11:12:46] <cradek> (although I didn't see this, so I might not understand the joke)
[11:13:40] <seb_kuzminsky> speaking of which, i was sad to see Fernand's thoughtful email to emc-developers about LinuxCNC Features get immediately derailed into a thread about replacing g-code with a more modern programming language
[11:13:57] <seb_kuzminsky> lol
[11:14:09] <seb_kuzminsky> cradek: it was the conclusion of that massive onion article you posted just now
[11:14:17] <cradek> oh ok
[11:14:21] <cradek> I didn't read to the end
[11:14:27] <seb_kuzminsky> haha
[11:14:31] <cradek> yeah I know
[11:14:31] <seb_kuzminsky> yeah who's got the time for that
[11:14:55] <seb_kuzminsky> wait, did you just make a meta-joke and i fell for it?
[11:16:31] <cradek> sure could be
[11:17:33] <jepler> a gentleman never tells

[11:18:34] <seb_kuzminsky> thanks zultron
[11:18:39] <cradek> sweet
[12:31:32] <mozmck> wonder how much this article cost M$ and Apple? http://www.washingtonpost.com/sf/business/2015/11/05/net-of-insecurity-the-kernel-of-the-argument/
[12:32:50] <cradek> an article that immediately talks about someone's appearance or clothes is not a product of journalism
[12:33:20] <cradek> but there's a further test: a [supposedly technical] article that talks about someone's personality is also not journalism
[12:33:37] <cradek> linux is bad because linus flipped someone else
[12:33:51] <cradek> the gpl is stupid because rms picks his nose
[12:33:58] <cradek> er, flipped someone OFF
[12:35:52] <cradek> haha, it says he also he talks with an accent
[12:36:10] <cradek> I bet that's a good way you can tell he's not to be trusted
[12:48:35] <mozmck> :-) First I've heard of all the "growing concern" about major security issues in linux.
[13:09:10] <cradek> > while Linux in its early days was widely considered a safer choice than Windows or other commercial operating systems, the edge has dwindled and perhaps disappeared.
[13:09:18] <cradek> [CITATION NEEDED]
[13:09:42] <mozmck> yeah, for a whole lot of statements.
[13:10:17] <jepler> I don't care about any of that, but Linus *does* need to stop ad hominem attacks against other developers. it is not OK to tell patch submitters that everyone would benefit from their suicides.
[13:12:16] <mozmck> heh, not a good habit for sure.
[13:12:48] <cradek> I agree that's very icky behavior
[13:14:04] <jepler> If it got out that Tim Cook or whoever has followed Ballmer said that to their employees, it would be an absolute media storm, and the media would also be right for taking them to task.
[13:15:00] <cradek> sure, but it's not supporting evidence of the insecurity of their software
[13:15:08] <jepler> no
[13:15:45] <jepler> the serious social disfunction is the much bigger story
[13:16:17] <jepler> .. and personally I have been so immersed in it that I had trouble recognizing it when people started pointng it out
[13:20:01] <jepler> (and if he's saying that specifically to developers who are working on security related projects then it may also be supporting evidence of the thesis that Linus doesn't care about security)
[13:32:01] <jepler> Subject: PREEMPT_RT kernel for Xilinx Zynq
[13:32:49] <jepler> ooh doesn't my parallela (which sits unused in its box :-/) have a Zynq CPU
[13:35:52] <cradek> cool
[18:48:09] <andypugh> cradek: Was it you who was looking at a linear delta?
[18:48:47] <andypugh> There is a wierd one on the mailing list. From looking at it, I dont think it works, but that’s only from looking and squinting.
[21:04:11] <jepler> I had/have a linear delta, kossel/rostock style. cradek was doodling about a rotary delta but I don't think he ever found a combo that gave good working volume vs total volume required for the 'elbows'
