07:33 AM TurBoss: Hello
07:52 AM jepler: oh look another bug caused by my ungrounded program fix :-/
07:52 AM jepler: configs/sim/axis/axis_9axis.ini can't even load the splash gcode
07:52 AM jepler: due to locking rotaries apparently
07:57 AM KGB-linuxcnc: 03Jeff Epler 05master f7d70d9 06linuxcnc 10src/emc/usr_intf/axis/scripts/axis.py axis: fix preview when machine has locking rotaries * 14http://git.linuxcnc.org/?p=linuxcnc.git;a=commitdiff;h=f7d70d9
10:16 AM skunkworks: jepler, http://electronicsam.com/images/matsuura/20170607_083656.jpg
10:16 AM skunkworks: after the second bed temp sensor wiring break - finally re-routing.
10:17 AM jepler: skunkworks: boo
10:18 AM jepler: skunkworks: I'm just leaving my bed unheated, PLA's perfectly fine on a cold bed for me
10:18 AM jepler: but if I do anything it will be something like what you're showing
10:18 AM jepler: .. I'll be sure to ask you which design you chose
10:19 AM skunkworks: sure - I just got sick of the temp reading wrong :)
10:37 AM seb_kuzminsky: those printed cable guides blew my mind the first time i saw them
10:45 AM skunkworks: seb_kuzminsky, I am still amazed at what it can do.. I really came in to this with pretty low expectations...
11:05 AM jepler: actually I've been considering replacing the bowden tube's wrap with something like that as well
11:06 AM jepler: not sure how I'd affix it at the hotend end
11:06 AM jepler: .. I've sorta been looking around for printers in the $800 range and I don't think you can buy a printer 4x as good for 4x the money.
11:18 AM skunkworks: For some definition of good?
11:23 AM jepler: defining "good" is sure an important part of the search.
11:24 AM jepler: better bed temps, dual filament, fewer compromises/cut corners
11:24 AM skunkworks: speed?
11:24 AM jepler: twice the speed wouldn't hurt
11:47 AM cradek: that's the prettiest I've seen http://buildbot.linuxcnc.org/buildbot/grid in a while
11:48 AM jepler: cradek: indeed
12:03 PM seb_kuzminsky: i'm nearly done totally breaking the buildbot to get its changes from github instead of glo, so enjoy it while it lasts
12:03 PM seb_kuzminsky: it's not that bad actually
12:03 PM jepler: that can't break things much .. can it ?
12:03 PM seb_kuzminsky: no it shouldnt
12:03 PM seb_kuzminsky: not until i try to teach it to build & test on uspace for PRs from other people's repos
12:04 PM cradek: so I guess we're making the change?
12:04 PM cradek: there was supposed to be an earth-shattering kaboom
12:04 PM cradek: ... but few people had strong feelings
12:05 PM jepler: I sent e-mail earlier scheduling it for an IRC meeting / vote
12:06 PM cradek: cool
12:06 PM seb_kuzminsky: yeah, i won't switch over until it's decided, of course
12:19 PM jepler: it occurs to me that another thing that will need a heavy flogging to keep going is the -commit mailing list
12:19 PM jepler: personally I don't find much value in -commit so I didn't think about it until this moment
12:21 PM jepler: .. there's an "Email" service udner "Integrations & services" but boy that is not good documentation
12:21 PM cradek: hm yeah
12:21 PM jepler: "We will run this service when an event is triggered", it promises.
12:22 PM jepler: what kinds of events don't seem to be controllable; it's the same thing that causes -linuxcnc-github- to talk to us now
12:22 PM jepler: I guess KGB- also will need love, since linuxcnc-github doesn't notify about pushes in general and I don't see a setting for that either
12:23 PM archivist: one thing that needs a crowbar is length of name"linuxcnc-github/#linuxcnc-devel" it pushes the window too far right
12:24 PM jepler: archivist: what irc client do you use?
12:24 PM cradek: wow I forgot how I generate those emails
12:24 PM archivist: jepler, xchat
12:25 PM jepler: ah, can't help you there
12:25 PM cradek: it's all just git show --pretty=format:'......'
12:25 PM jepler: my client (irssi) can be configured so that it limits the max nick length shown, among many other ways to control how things are presented
12:29 PM archivist: this auto fits so way too much blank space with silly long names
12:30 PM xepler: I have XChat 2.8.8 handy on this debian wheezy machine. If the preference "indent nick names" is on, there's a vertical bar in the text box which I can drag to the desired position. It scrunches the nicks over into the timestamp, and then when there's still not enough room it overflows it into the text columns
12:30 PM xepler: maybe try that
12:51 PM seb_kuzminsky: jepler: the wlo repo on github pokes a kgb instance on my wlo-builder vm that squawks here
12:52 PM seb_kuzminsky: i could have the same script that prods the buildbot into action for the linuxcnc repo do the same here
12:53 PM seb_kuzminsky: or wait, is it github itself that announces wlo commits here? let me check
12:53 PM seb_kuzminsky: yeah, it's github
12:54 PM seb_kuzminsky: so we can configure github to announce pushes to linuxcnc.git here, no problem
12:54 PM seb_kuzminsky: i'll take care of that part if you want
01:32 PM jepler: seb_kuzminsky: I don't think it's github that announces wlo commits. it announces things like certain activity on issues and PRs
01:41 PM jepler: linuxcnc-github *does* announce pushes to linuxcnc/wlo but not to linuxcnc/linuxcnc. So the answer to the question is "why"
01:41 PM seb_kuzminsky: because i enabled irc integration on the github/linuxcnc/wlo repo
01:41 PM seb_kuzminsky: https://github.com/LinuxCNC/wlo/settings/installations
01:45 PM jepler: that can't be the whole answer, there's also an irc integration at https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/settings/installations
01:45 PM seb_kuzminsky: hmmm
01:50 PM seb_kuzminsky: when i fetch the hook diags i see wlo and linuxcnc have different 'events'
01:50 PM seb_kuzminsky: curl -i -u 'USERNAME:PASSWORD' https://api.github.com/repos/REPOUSER/REPONAME/hooks
01:51 PM seb_kuzminsky: but i dont know where those events are set
01:57 PM jepler: https://akrabat.com/changing-the-github-irc-hooks-notification-events/ suggests that in 2013 you set this up by using curl
02:00 PM seb_kuzminsky: like a barbarian
02:01 PM jepler: given that we've both failed to find it in the human web UI, ...
02:11 PM seb_kuzminsky: this is ringing a bell now
02:11 PM seb_kuzminsky: https://developer.github.com/v3/repos/hooks/#create-a-hook
02:19 PM seb_kuzminsky: i wish i'd checked the stuff into the wlo repo that i used to configure the events
03:49 PM pcw_home_ is now known as pcw_home
04:12 PM KGB-linuxcnc: 03Dewey Garrett 05master c73fa85 06linuxcnc 10docs/man/man9/kins.9 kins manpage: expand on duplicated coord letters * 14http://git.linuxcnc.org/?p=linuxcnc.git;a=commitdiff;h=c73fa85
05:52 PM jepler: I'll have limited internet for the next week or two.
06:23 PM JT-Shop: do we need to watch anything on the forum?
06:34 PM seb_kuzminsky: i think the forum is unlikely to fall over now
06:34 PM seb_kuzminsky: but if it does we should just reboot it
10:03 PM jepler: seb has as good a handle on that as me
10:03 PM jepler: thanks for keeping an eye on it though
