[06:24:30] <jthornton> skunkworks: cool
[06:32:45] <jthornton> what version of Xilinx Design Suite should I download?
[06:58:22] <cncbasher> 14.1
[06:58:52] <cncbasher> if you want to do the older 5i20 type boards you'll need 10.4
[06:59:01] <cncbasher> as well
[07:00:31] <cncbasher> that will keep you going for at least 3 hours
[07:03:06] <Tom_itx> JT-Shop, i keep 9.xx and the last one on the pc
[07:04:28] <Tom_itx> 14.5
[07:04:53] <Tom_itx> http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/emc/xilinx/xilinx14_install_index.php

[07:08:10] <Tom_itx> get the very latest then.. it was the last one of the webpack

[07:09:22] <jthornton> ok
[07:09:31] <Tom_itx> http://www.xilinx.com/support/download/index.html/content/xilinx/en/downloadNav/design-tools.html
[07:09:40] <jthornton> might take me 3 days to download them all lol
[07:10:40] <Tom_itx> do you need a custom bitfile?
[07:18:16] <jthornton> yes
[07:19:28] <jthornton> http://paste.ubuntu.com/15023829/
[07:19:46] <jthornton> it's similar to the G540 with the step and direction pins reversed
[07:22:16] <jthornton> gotta run to Jonesboro be back this afternoon
[07:24:50] <Tom_itx> those directions are also on the wiki page
[07:35:57] <cncbasher> i may well have that allready done John
[07:37:35] <cncbasher> do you need a chargepump ?
[07:40:09] <jthornton> its for racedirector on the forum, he is starting a thread there https://forum.linuxcnc.org/forum/27-driver-boards/30375-5i25-with-pmdx126#70037
[07:40:41] <cncbasher> i'm emailing with Bruce at the momnet
[07:41:45] <jthornton> ok if you have the bit file I'll need it
[07:44:04] <cncbasher> i'll sort it John and send to bruce, and i'll email you a copy too
[07:44:26] <cncbasher> might be an hour as the pc's tied up at the moment
[07:44:55] <cncbasher> but i'm sure i did the same for someone else a few weeks back
[07:44:59] <JT-Shop> ok thanks
[07:45:11] <JT-Shop> I'm off for a while
[07:45:22] <cncbasher> ok shout when your back
[08:10:22] <cncbasher> you have a email John when you get back
[11:03:05] <skunkworks> out plan for a spindle encoder on the matsurra.. http://imgur.com/a/UvDnl
[11:03:14] <skunkworks> oops - wrong list
[11:14:00] <mozmck> skunkworks: you going to run that with Mach4?
[11:14:23] <skunkworks> Think I should?
[11:14:38] <skunkworks> it is going to have rigid tapping... at some point.
[11:15:01] <mozmck> Yeah, any day now ;-)
[11:16:50] <skunkworks> and lathe too. soon
[14:44:36] <JT-Shop> PCW: I'm mesaus.com no a :)
[14:44:53] * JT-Shop goes to woodchuck some wood
[14:53:22] <PCW> OK
[15:06:15] <JT-Shop> mesausa.com does have a cute girl on the home page :)
[15:15:35] <Tom_itx> does yours?
[15:18:44] <JT-Shop> no :(
[20:21:08] <cradek> JT-Shop: nitpick: bus of the computer type is just spelled bus, not buss (buss is the kiss greeting thing)
[20:21:55] <cradek> showing the options in tree form is a really good idea
[21:04:44] <skunkworks> buss makes fuses or used to.
[21:07:12] <skunkworks> replaced the guts of the dishwasher - it actually works now. Things get clean. yay
[21:08:57] <skunkworks> don't know what failed or plugged. Just seemed to stop pumping
[21:14:06] <skunkworks> louder :)
[21:51:55] <Tom_itx> too much solid waste buildup is usually the cause
[21:52:31] <Tom_itx> i clean mine out every so often
