[10:26:43] <pcw_home> I'm supposed to be roto-tilling but its raining
[10:27:05] <jepler> JT-Shop: ctrl-alt-t does NOT launch a terminal in all desktop environments by default, so giving this direction in our documentation is not a good idea.
[10:27:57] <pcw_home> is that a gnome/unity thing?

[10:29:28] <jepler> pcw_home: I think I first encountered it as a default in gnome on ubuntu 6 or so, and it's a great keystroke to have available .. but I don't think xfce has it set up as a default

[10:42:03] <mozmck> pcw_home: we got and are running I believe one of these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0148K0QSS?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00
[10:42:30] <mozmck> I don't think they did latency test on it, but they have been running a plasma table cutting metal for a couple of days.
[10:43:27] <JT-Shop> jepler: ok, thanks
[10:49:17] <mozmck> pcw_home: We also ordered one almost the same but with an i3 processor - they thought that's what is running on the table but I'm not sure now. I'll have to check. Nice thing is that these come with memory and SSD installed.
[10:53:59] <pcw_home> The J1900 full size MBs have decent latency so that mini-pc should be fine
[10:54:00] <pcw_home> (and a better deal since the ZOTAC is bare-bones for about the same price )
[10:54:02] <pcw_home> I did want to try a newer CPU
[10:55:07] <pcw_home> the Zotac has WIFI, not sure if it will be supported though (new Intel chip)
[10:55:51] <mozmck> Yeah, these have dual lan, and some had wifi built in as well.
[10:56:00] <mozmck> some are core i3
[10:56:23] <pcw_home> Qotom has a 4 LAN version!
[10:56:50] <mozmck> If you look through the Qotom section they have a lot of configurations.
[10:56:52] <mozmck> http://www.amazon.com/Qotom/b/ref=bl_dp_s_web_10065023011?ie=UTF8&node=10065023011&field-lbr_brands_browse-bin=Qotom
[10:57:28] <mozmck> Numbers of them have 4 - 6 rs232! Not sure how useful that is for most people...
[10:58:55] * JT-Shop thinks a #linuxcnc-buildbot channel would be useful
[11:01:22] <mozmck> pcw_home: There are i5 versions, but not many have dual lan. This one has 1 lan and wireless though: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B018LALXZ6/ref=s9_dcbhz_bw_d22_g147_i6_wsh
[11:04:09] <pcw_home> Thats cheap for a I5
[11:04:33] <mozmck> Hmm, here's an i5 with wifi and dual ports, and 6 rs232 ;-) http://www.amazon.com/Latest-intel-china-Industrial-computer/dp/B01C8FQYYA/ref=sr_1_16?srs=10065023011&ie=UTF8&qid=1460216159&sr=8-16&keywords=i5
[11:04:38] <mozmck> $243
[11:04:51] <mozmck> only 8Gig SSD
[11:05:48] <mozmck> That case is nice - no holes for dust to get in except around the connectors. The other one we got has that case.
[11:06:25] <jepler> 6 COM ports? quite unusual these days.
[11:06:41] <jepler> you might actually want to run serport on that and use them for something
[11:07:01] <mozmck> Yes, I don't know why but quite a few of the Qotom have that. The last one also has 4 USB3 and 4 USB2

[16:48:05] <JT-Shop> is there a 5i25_prob bit file with pin 14 open so I can use it as an output?
[16:48:31] <JT-Shop> the only one I see has a PWMGen on 14
[16:51:55] <JT-Shop> this is the controller http://www.probotix.com/wiki/index.php/Unity_Controller
[16:53:40] <JT-Shop> 1) A Dir 10) X Limit 2) X Step 11) Y1 Limit 3) X Dir 12) Y2 Limit 4) Y1 Step 13) Z Limit 5) Y1 Dir 14) Spindle 6) Z Step 15) E-stop 7) Z Dir 16) Coolant 8) Y2 Step 17) A Step 9) Y2 Dir 18-25) GND
[17:48:59] <Tom_itx> 5i25_PROB_RFx2
[17:49:05] <Tom_itx> there's that
[18:03:33] <JT-Shop> yea but it has a pwmgen on pin 14
[18:04:08] <Tom_itx> fix it
[18:04:35] <Tom_itx> it's not that difficult... really..
[19:09:32] <pcw_home> you dont need to fix anything
[19:11:31] <pcw_home> if you dont need the PWMGen, disable it and the pin is available as GPIO
[19:17:55] <pcw_home> Pretty sure the unity does use PWM on pin 14 (it has a 0..10V analog output for a VFD the voltage is probably set by PWM on pin 14)
