#linuxcnc-devel Calendar

10:18 AM jepler: huh I have here a copy of axis source history converted to git; it covers the period from 2004 to 2006
10:19 AM jepler: .. before it was integrated with something called emc2
10:19 AM cradek: cool
10:19 AM cradek: what do you think you'll do with it?
11:03 AM jepler: cradek: I dunno, I found it while looking for stuff to delete
11:06 AM jepler: I don't think revision history from 13 years ago has much value but I could easily toss it up on github
11:08 AM cradek: baby pictures
11:14 AM jepler: https://github.com/jepler/axis-historical
11:15 AM jepler: hmm, and here's l2h, the LyX to HTML converter I wrote circa 2007; doesn't work with current LyX versions
11:16 AM jepler: .. the path offsetting library I abandoned when it turned out math was hard
11:16 AM cradek: where are you digging?
11:17 AM jepler: http://media.unpythonic.net/git/
11:44 AM skunkworks: jepler, heh fix a segfault that surprisingly only showed up when your luck was bad
11:44 AM skunkworks: had you been running git that long? or are these converted from cvs or such?
11:45 AM jepler: we developed AXIS under CVS, and I converted it later
02:55 PM skunkworks: jepler, the forum seems to be down?
02:55 PM jepler: skunkworks: checking
02:56 PM jepler: skunkworks: loading here but slowly
02:56 PM skunkworks: I get forum.linuxcnc.org took too long to respond
02:57 PM skunkworks: replaced the screen in shirleys iphone finally. So far a success...
02:58 PM skunkworks: 1mmX.25 screws are a pain
02:58 PM jepler: did you need a special 3 1/2-lobed screwdriver too?
02:58 PM skunkworks: yes - it came with the screen kit
02:59 PM skunkworks: I just assumed it was some sort of torqs screw.. Until I did some research. (hard to see that small)
03:00 PM skunkworks: one of the holes on the new screen wasn't tapped.. must have been a reject
03:02 PM jepler: well there's a kernel upgrade so I'll take the opportunity to restart the forum
03:06 PM jepler: .. rebooted
03:07 PM skunkworks: working
03:07 PM skunkworks: jepler, thanks
03:08 PM jepler: something unusual was going on, disk I/O was 3MB/s vs typically <10kB/s
03:08 PM jepler: public bandwidth was also 10x typical
03:08 PM jepler: so it may be the case that somebody was crawling the site or otherwise generating atypical load
03:13 PM jepler: it seems weird for the forum to be requesting these invalid files from itself
03:14 PM jepler: 14:41:54 <cradek> sure, I kinda wondered what I did with it
03:14 PM jepler: errr
03:14 PM jepler: - - [07/Aug/2017:15:42:02 -0400] "GET /https://forum.linuxcnc.org/media/kunena/attachments/21542/Screenshot_2017-08-06_16-29-42.png HTTP/1.0" 404 7553 "-" "-"
03:14 PM cradek: weird
03:16 PM jepler: so for instance if you visit http://forum.linuxcnc.org/pathpilot/30159-pathpilot-controlled-lathe-toolchanger which displays http://forum.linuxcnc.org/media/kunena/attachments/19635/image.jpeg inline, the forum requests from itself /http://forum.linuxcnc.org/media/kunena/attachments/19635/image.jpeg
03:17 PM jepler: something's not right there
03:26 PM jepler: it seems to be something that started when I upgrade the forum :-/
04:01 PM jepler: it is a bug in the crypsis template for kunena forum, which they have fixed but not released yet. https://github.com/Kunena/Kunena-Forum/commit/bf3ee95e126fc355bd5e5c0aff5f7cd95cddd6a1#diff-563de9c25237c483b8f938b21cff7565
04:02 PM jepler: .. I applied a change which also seems to fix the problem
04:03 PM jepler: OTOH it was broken "a year ago" according to the blame https://github.com/Kunena/Kunena-Forum/blame/59e32f6f3223f3e563a350cb8f21b1f1140a3056/src/components/com_kunena/template/crypsis/layouts/attachment/item/image.php
04:03 PM jepler: so .. weird
04:55 PM Tom_L: https://emergent.unpythonic.net/01174426278#
04:55 PM Tom_L: jepler, was that ever a part of linuxcnc?
04:56 PM Tom_L: is that your site?
04:58 PM Tom_L: looks that way..
05:02 PM jepler: I don't think it was part of LinuxCNC, just a script I whipped up
05:02 PM jepler: and that was a LOOONNNNG time ago so if it still works it would be a pleasant surprise
05:23 PM Tom_L: someone linked it to me yesterday so maybe they tried it already
05:59 PM Tom_L: is there a way to extract the config files from the iso without installing it?
05:59 PM Tom_L: the vismach stuff isn't in master and it's corrupt on my hdd after the crash
06:00 PM Tom_L: still finding bad files on that thing
09:59 PM Tom_L: if orient.x.mode is set to 0 (shortest move) will that trigger motion.spindle-forward and motion.spindle-reverse depending on the shortest path?
10:33 PM -!- #linuxcnc-devel mode set to +v by ChanServ
10:33 PM Tom_L: wb
10:55 PM seb_kuzminsky: ok, that was pretty catastrophic...
10:55 PM seb_kuzminsky: my isp turned off my internet access right after i left on a week-long camping trip
10:57 PM seb_kuzminsky: they redirected every outgoing dns and http query to a page in their domain asking me to call them and tell them what make & model dsl modem i have
10:57 PM seb_kuzminsky: so i bet the buildbot was down all week
10:57 PM seb_kuzminsky: sorry about that
11:01 PM skunkworks: nice seb.. we give you one job..
11:03 PM skunkworks: How was the trip?
11:04 PM seb_kuzminsky: it was pretty great
11:04 PM seb_kuzminsky: toured southern colorado/western slope
11:04 PM seb_kuzminsky: it was gorgeous
11:23 PM Tom_L: would it be bad practice to run pid.x.output thru scale?
11:50 PM seb_kuzminsky: linuxcnc-build_: force build --branch=master 0000.checkin
11:50 PM linuxcnc-build_: build forced [ETA 1h31m44s]
11:50 PM linuxcnc-build_: I'll give a shout when the build finishes
