[00:38:59] <RyanS> From an initial look it doesn't seem to to be threaded but seems to be one sold piece with the shaft
[00:39:10] <RyanS> Although it would be handy if it were threaded
[00:39:41] <RyanS> But not if I don't have the correct change gears for that thread
[00:45:20] <toastyde1th> it's usually something stupid common like 10 TPI or 1mm
[00:47:17] <toastyde1th> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XV6nHE-MyRw
[00:47:19] <toastyde1th> example
[00:47:23] <Tecan> (XV6nHE-MyRw) "South Bend Lathe Heavy 10 (10L) spindle" by "Noel Barlau" is "Autos" - Length: 0:00:51
[00:47:32] <toastyde1th> but yours could easily be a solid piece, it's just unusual
[00:47:50] <toastyde1th> unusual/annoying
[00:53:31] <RyanS> i have to what. hold the drive pulley in place on the other side of the headstock and then try and give the Chuck a whack clockwise.. anticlockwise ?
[01:01:37] <RyanS> This is the POS http://www.china-tyjc.com/en-ProductShow.asp?ID=138 it has this silly "milling machine" appendage
[01:40:11] <RyanS> $62 for a 130 mm casting.... GF
[02:14:12] <Loetmichel> mornin'
[02:18:33] <DJ9DJ> moin
[05:01:55] <RyanS> This can't be too rigid surely http://www.lathes.co.uk/drummondroundbed/img13.jpg
[05:02:21] <RyanS> Nice sleeve catchers on the left
[07:03:02] <jthornton> say your cutting a shape on a tube end on a rotary, would it make sense to lay it out flat and calculate the points every degree or something like that?
[07:04:15] <Tom_itx> sounds about right
[07:04:30] <archivist> I suppose I think that way but never draw it
[07:07:02] <archivist> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adT8Dr5JZ4c this is an indexes set of cuts related to the outer circumference and then a I follow a path for the final curve
[07:07:03] <Tecan> (adT8Dr5JZ4c) "4axis emc2 cnc cutting Verge escape wheel" by "davethearchivist" is "Tech" - Length: 0:01:33
[07:09:07] <jthornton> so with X and A every move is G1?
[07:09:15] <archivist> yes
[07:09:30] <jthornton> ok
[07:09:47] <jthornton> I'm going to look at that rotary Saturday at Grizzly
[07:10:50] <archivist> as these have backlash I never climb mill hopefully
[07:11:13] <jthornton> now I'm wondering if I can drive the G203 from the 7i77 somehow
[07:11:40] <tjtr33> like old school sheet metal layout?
[07:11:49] <tjtr33> yes, it seems thats what the cnc would see it as, like a Y wave along a flat B axis.
[07:11:51] <tjtr33> the b actually turns but could be a line for all the cnc cares.
[07:12:33] <jthornton> yea, I even have some notes on pipe layout and such
[07:13:26] <archivist> hmm tinware :) http://www.collection.archivist.info/archive/DJCPD/PD/2010/2010_07_27_tinware/IMG_0797.JPG
[07:13:55] <archivist> sheet work can be fun
[07:14:25] <jthornton> I like the tiny tool box
[07:15:12] <archivist> http://www.collection.archivist.info/archive/DJCPD/PD/2010/2010_07_27_tinware/IMG_0798.JPG to see the tools
[07:16:11] <archivist> might have been an old book on sheet metal work that got me started on tinware
[07:16:20] <jthornton> made them back when you had young eyes?
[07:16:40] <jthornton> I remember the open tool box photo
[07:17:26] <archivist> dunno stated in the 1980's probably
[07:17:32] <archivist> started
[07:18:33] <archivist> toolbox is hiding at the moment :(
[07:19:57] <jthornton> hiding as in it's here somewhere...
[07:20:33] <tjtr33> http://schools.spsd.sk.ca/waltermurray/library/Subjects/Drafting/Dr%2010%20new/Development%20Notes.pdf still lookin for intersection of 2 tubes tho
[07:21:18] <jthornton> I need to do the intersection of 3 tubes with one larger than the other two
[07:22:06] <archivist> I know I have that in a book
[07:22:19] <tjtr33> http://ludemannengineering.com/2011/12/27/how-to-fishmouth-tubes-in-solidworks/ ?
[07:22:52] <tjtr33> iirc you use SW, that ^^ has 3 intersect tutor, but was same dia
[07:22:54] <jthornton> cool
[07:23:20] <jthornton> yes, I use SW daily
[07:23:53] <tjtr33> i was amazed at the linuxcnc welding demos, like 5 axis, outside of the blinding flashes, i imagined the rest :)
[07:23:56] <jthornton> I've never done weldments in SW yet
[07:24:39] <tjtr33> walkies! bbl
[07:32:02] <archivist> found tee of unequal pipe which is probably what you want
[07:35:06] <jthornton> cool
[07:37:33] <tjtr33> the bike people call the idea 'tube miter templates' ( tube intersect to flat template ) http://www.metalgeek.com/static/cope.pcgi
[07:37:48] <tjtr33> theres a slew of 'em
[07:46:05] <jthornton> I guess it is all just math and a program could be written to generate the g code
[07:46:16] <archivist> jthornton, http://www.collection.archivist.info/archive/DJC/BK/BK662/
[07:46:57] <archivist> I do just do the maths in gcode for that vid
[07:47:51] <jthornton> thanks
[07:50:53] <archivist> dont think the ngc for that ever got to this box yet
[07:52:41] <archivist> it did http://www.collection.archivist.info/escape/verge_wheel.ngc
[07:52:51] <archivist> E&OE
[07:53:46] <jthornton> cool
[07:54:58] <archivist> so 4 years since I did any of that...not a lot of work about!
[07:55:46] <jdh> I used to know a guy that had a spreadsheet on his website that did pipe coping calcs for sizes/angles/etc
[08:04:30] <tjtr33> metalgeek's page spits out gcode. it's flat in X Y, but could be auto translated to B Y. his code is hidden behind cgi post/get
[08:30:20] <ReadError_> any ideas for cutting aluminum "tube" on a lathe w/o a cutoff tool?
[08:30:40] <ReadError_> not very big stuff
[08:30:55] <ReadError_> maybe grind a really thin bit?
[08:31:11] <jdh> hacksaw then face
[08:31:41] <ReadError_> tried that, maybe i need to use a new blade
[08:31:54] <jdh> teeth pointed the right direction?
[08:32:04] <ReadError_> hm, i thought they cut both directions
[08:32:13] <ReadError_> but yea i probably had it backwards
[08:32:51] <jdh> thin it with a regular left/right tool then cut through?
[08:36:54] <archivist> correct tool rake for that sort of work, make sure you have an escape route for when it flies out
[08:37:45] <ReadError_> its tiny
[08:37:45] <jdh> or c) buy a parting tool
[08:37:51] <ReadError_> maybe a few mm
[08:38:02] <ReadError_> 7.85mm in diameter
[08:38:12] <archivist> thickness or diameter
[08:38:15] <ReadError_> i can hand file it down afterwards not a big deal
[08:38:21] <ReadError_> on thickness is maybe 1mm
[08:38:58] <archivist> crushing by the chuck jaws becomes an issue, use collets instead
[08:42:15] <ReadError_> well, i take aluminum stock
[08:42:27] <ReadError_> cut down to my dimensions, then bore it with a drill bit
[08:42:40] <ReadError_> so the part thats chucked is solid still
[08:48:03] <archivist> thats ok just make/use a sensible parting bit
[08:50:22] <jdh> I have lots of blanks if you want a couple, no thin parting type ones, but you could grind one.
[08:51:16] <jdh> are there any good references on how to resharpen HSS end mills?
[08:52:06] <IchGuckLive> hi all B)
[08:52:20] <archivist> I make parting tools to suit the type of work, left and right , flat topped for brass and no pip
[08:52:28] <Heinz_60> hi
[09:34:46] <PetefromTn_> Mornin' folks...
[09:36:39] <PetefromTn_> archivist: I make my own parting tools often as well but never thought of them as handed LOL\
[09:37:34] <archivist> left right and neutral look at the sandvik parting inserts
[09:38:20] <archivist> and there is the horrible mixed form seen on the blade type
[09:39:00] <PetefromTn_> Oh so you are making insert parting tool holders.
[09:39:48] <archivist> no just doing the same on HSS
[09:41:20] <PetefromTn_> oh cool. I am sure yours are much better than mine. I often just grab the damn sawzall and cut it off in the lathe or if I do not need perfect concentricity on the clamping I will remove it and slap it in the bandsaw LOL
[09:42:08] <PetefromTn_> I bought a nice insert kit believe it or not from Grizzly that had a parting off tool holder as well as a bunch of other holders but the parting off holder kinda sucked
[09:42:20] <PetefromTn_> I love the rest of the holders tho.
[09:43:21] <archivist> when working at the scale I sometimes do, its either pay hundreds for pj horn or 2 minutes on the grinder with hss
[09:44:04] <archivist> 90% of parting tool holders suck
[09:45:10] <PetefromTn_> Yeah I grind my own from blanks most of the time.
[10:31:26] <JT-Shop> http://www.cati.com/landing/stratasys-uprint-desktop-3d-printers-em.php
[10:45:30] <CaptHindsight> Stratasys just acquired Makerbot and holds many of the "improvements" on glue gun printing

[10:50:17] <CaptHindsight> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_7qVNDQ3lI they do a poor job of marketing but SLA with DLP is 100X the print rate of any GGG printer
[12:15:10] <IchGuckLive> hi all B)
[12:22:37] <tjtr33> hi IchGuckLive , is it possible to use cutter comp (G40 G41 G42) with the axis_foam config? i was just about to try
[12:23:11] <IchGuckLive> no as you got 2 planes
[12:23:23] <IchGuckLive> gut i will try
[12:23:27] <tjtr33> ok, it can be done in the cad then
[12:23:35] <IchGuckLive> yes
[12:23:40] <tjtr33> thx!
[12:27:51] <IchGuckLive> the offset workes only for the XY not for the UV coordinates
[12:31:39] <tjtr33> got it, i'll offset the 2 paths in the cad, and then, join them up in text editor, as you show in your video
[12:34:16] <IchGuckLive> best way to go
[12:34:50] <IchGuckLive> tjtr33: did you try the heekscnc postpro for this
[12:35:20] <tjtr33> i will, i have not done it yet
[12:35:53] <IchGuckLive> i got a video how to on the channel
[12:37:03] <tjtr33> i have not gone thru all your videos but do have your channel bookmarked. good stuff!
[12:38:59] <IchGuckLive> it may be easyer then your text stitch but it is up to you
[12:40:38] <tjtr33> oh, hadnt thought that you have already written an xyuv post. great! or one could be built 'automagically' I will check it out
[13:21:37] <jdh> is heeks still being developed?
[13:22:17] <IchGuckLive> yes but from different persons on diferent OS no sync
[13:22:41] <jdh> different being windows?
[13:22:58] <IchGuckLive> i go and look
[13:24:36] <IchGuckLive> no 0.22 is last
[13:25:49] <IchGuckLive> ribbensoft is also up to get visual mill in qcad runing fpr a 50USD charge
[13:25:55] <IchGuckLive> both ofcause
[13:26:43] <IchGuckLive> awallin will get the cam in frecad if he overcome the windos problems
[13:34:05] <IchGuckLive> AT all in this vid at 1:25++http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=R1DCXe9t3UE
[13:34:06] <Tecan> (R1DCXe9t3UE) "PMC Mini 5-axis CNC machining (小型五軸加工)" by "YU-AN Liu" is "Tech" - Length: 0:04:18
[13:34:22] <IchGuckLive> you see a complete mashine sim syynct to the G-code
[13:34:35] <IchGuckLive> is this a module that is available somewhere
[13:46:30] <tjtr33> IchGuchLive, that looks like just linuxcnc and vismach. vismach is mostly python. maybe all? (and the music is too loud AND boring ;)
[13:52:31] <tjtr33> the old Taiwan Govt research center was called ITRI/MIRL, this group is also GOVERNMENT related, but has a new name.
[13:52:31] <tjtr33> ITRI developed a lot of cnc hdwr see http://www.epcio.com.tw/
[13:53:51] <tjtr33> a load of pci cards! the trouble with ITYRI/MIRTL is everyone that works there is looking for a patron to fund his startup ( and exit from the govt labs )

[16:44:06] <PetefromTn> Afternoon everyone...
[16:48:01] <DJ9DJ> gn8
[17:04:26] <andypugh> So, tonight I have mainly been making 12mm rod into #3-48 screws. Which might be considered a tad wasteful.
[17:05:20] <toastyde2th> lol
[17:09:55] <Tom_itx> maybe they need large heads on them
[17:10:29] <andypugh> Actually, it was only 2 of the #3-48 size (to hold down the angle scale on the compound). There were also a couple of #10-24 to hold the handwheel housing on, and a #8-40 to replace a missing gibb screw. I _think_ that is all the missing screws replaced now.
[17:11:27] <Tom_itx> andypugh, had i had more time i'd have taken you across the street to my surplus guy's place
[17:12:11] <andypugh> The #8-40 on the gibb was 16mm long, and I got it oversize. I had to put it back in the chuck and pick the thread back up!
[18:07:56] <Tom_itx> 101 F Partly Cloudy
[18:21:52] <eric_unterhausen> andypugh: got the RPi interface today, thanks
[18:22:24] <eric_unterhausen> oh, he left
[18:23:59] <PetefromTn> Tom_itx: DAMN MAN really? That is crazy hot... Where you at? Texas?
[18:24:41] <Tom_itx> ks
[18:24:48] <Tom_itx> storm coming though
[18:25:00] <Tom_itx> straightline winds knocking over semi trucks in this one
[18:25:30] <Tom_itx> http://www.intellicast.com/National/Radar/Current.aspx?animate=true&location=USKS0523
[18:25:59] <Tom_itx> weather during the fest was excellent though
[18:26:04] <Tom_itx> they left too soon
[18:27:46] <Tom_itx> 60-80mph winds
[18:32:40] <PetefromTn> WOW.... We had a noisy night here last night with lightning and thunder etc. Nothing too drastic but not had to water my plants any lately LOL
[18:53:48] <CaptHindsight> we got 6 inches of water in our shop yesterday, rained 3.5 inches an hour
[18:54:28] <CaptHindsight> even saw fish in our parking lot earlier today
[18:56:16] <Tom_itx> that's alot of water
[18:57:05] <Tom_itx> i've seen both extremes on our river, last year you could walk across it and not get wet and i've seen it and the floodway both filled to the brim and spilling over
[18:59:56] <PetefromTn> Just trying to post some code to the VMC from CamBam and having an issue. I altered the post to include a G53 Z0 on line 9 .....getting an error with this. Any ideas? Here is the code.
[19:00:05] <PetefromTn> N0090 G53 z0
[19:00:05] <PetefromTn> N0100 M6 T1 (Mill/router, 0.375 in diameter)
[19:00:05] <PetefromTn> N0110 G43 H1
[19:00:28] <PetefromTn> It says there is a problem around line 10 and something about cannot make an axis move
[19:01:08] <PetefromTn> I am trying to get the machine to start working LIKE it has a toolchanger so that once I get it working it is an easy transition'
[19:01:55] <PetefromTn> Here is the preamble and everything if that helps...

[19:05:23] <PetefromTn> It keeps saying Cannot use axis values without a G code that uses them...?
[19:05:49] <PetefromTn> I am sure this is probably just a dumbass move on my part somewhere LOL, anyone?
[19:14:21] <JT-Shop> PetefromTn: you don't need line numbers it only obfuscates the G code
[19:15:09] <JT-Shop> G53 Z0 will give you an error without a G0 or G1
[19:15:11] <PetefromTn> Are you saying that the line numbers are the problem or they are just a problem reading them.
[19:15:29] <JT-Shop> they make me crosseyed and LinuxCNC ignores them
[19:15:31] <PetefromTn> Okay that is the problem then... Thanks man.
[19:15:50] <JT-Shop> can I quit reading then?
[19:15:52] <PetefromTn> Yeah I know they make me that way too but it is nice when you have to modify code to find your way.
[19:16:09] <PetefromTn> Sorry if it offends..
[19:16:21] <JT-Shop> not a problem
[19:16:51] <CaptHindsight> oh man, first ... then line numbers, when will they leave you alone? :)
[19:17:04] <JT-Shop> LOL
[19:17:07] <Tom_itx> line numbers neither add or detract from running the code
[19:17:37] <Tom_itx> purely for the user
[19:18:01] <Tom_itx> ok that 80mph wind just hit here
[19:18:10] <Tom_itx> took out a bunch of branches
[19:18:11] <JT-Shop> hot wind?
[19:18:18] <JT-Shop> or the cool front
[19:18:44] * JT-Shop puts on the chef hat and goes to the cocina
[19:18:52] <JT-Shop> youall have a fun evening
[19:18:53] <Tom_itx> cool
[19:18:55] <PetefromTn> Yeah that is what I thought about the line numbers...
[19:19:08] <Tom_itx> from the north
[19:19:19] <Tom_itx> i run line numbers with no problems
[19:19:23] <PetefromTn> I put the G53 for the toolchanger to use later on. Just forgot the G0 command
[19:19:23] <Tom_itx> it annoys some
[19:19:54] <PetefromTn> It USED to annoy me especially pre LinuxCNC because of the small memory of the original control
[19:20:09] <PetefromTn> now with a PC and tons of memory it is a nonissue
[19:21:19] <Tom_itx> airport measured an 89mph wind gust
[19:40:23] <eric_unterhausen> we got a pretty bad storm earlier, it was rotating right above us, started to worry
[19:41:12] <eric_unterhausen> I decided to try powerline networking.
[19:41:33] <eric_unterhausen> my desktop is running wireless right now and I can't play videos
[20:43:18] <jdh> how is the powerline stuff?
[20:47:20] <Tom_itx> no power loss here
[20:47:29] <Tom_itx> just plenty of branches down
[20:47:41] <Tom_itx> a few in the area lost power
[20:48:26] <Tom_itx> someone gave me a bunch of powerline net stuff. it's all still in a box somewhere
[20:48:51] <Tom_itx> problem with it is if you cross the buss you don't get reception
[20:57:30] <PetefromTn> Well I managed to get my setup completed and got my vise jaw program done. Ran a pair just a minute ago on the Cincinatti and it looks great. Now whenever I need some more sacrificial jaws I can make them exactly the same way YEAY!!
[20:59:26] <PetefromTn> If we can't get excited about the little things what can we get excited about LOL
[21:00:30] <PetefromTn> Big shout out to Connor for helping me with my fixture offsets a bit ago. Thanks dude!!
[21:01:26] <Tom_itx> we would make several widths of them in case we had to profile a part in them there would be room
[21:02:34] <PetefromTn> Tom_itx: Yeah thats what I do actually. These are 1" wide which works for most stuff but I have made them 2" etc. I can quickly modify the program for deeper ones in my cam.
[21:03:08] <PetefromTn> Right now sitting here eating Italian Ices with my Daughter Angelina listening to Bob Marley....Life is good!!
[21:29:17] <PetefromTn> Okay so now Tomorrow I can try to tackle this Router spindle mount.....hopefully.
[21:35:57] <tjb1> Id like to kill fedex
[21:36:02] <tjb1> Wont let me hold a package at location
[21:45:03] <PetefromTn> I hear ya....
[21:47:48] <tjb1> Why do I have to mail in for this when I am paying $420 for the card it goes on…it should be a damn standard piece http://www.evga.com/articles/00753/
[21:49:28] <jdh> it's psychological. extensive studies on l33t g4m3rz show that mail in 'free' stuff works better
[21:50:54] <jdh> so, without that plate, are critical components unprotected? PCB weak? ugly?
[21:51:30] <tjb1> Im not sure
[21:51:38] <tjb1> I'm fighting with fedex so I can get it tomorrow
[21:51:56] <Tom_itx> who do you think will win?
[21:52:16] <tjb1> I won, I found someone who sent a message to the local station to hold it
[21:56:59] <Tom_itx> no, it's first down and you got the ball. you win when it's in your hand
[22:17:23] <Aero-Tec2> any EMC pros out there?
[22:17:34] <Aero-Tec2> need to know some info
[22:22:43] <Aero-Tec2> if one has 1 PPR spindle encoder, will treading stop on index encoder pulse or will it do some math and say 20% past the last index pulse it should stop threading to match the thread depth?
[22:24:42] <Tom_itx> no pro here but i would guess it would _start_ on the index pulse and go as deep as you tell it to
[22:36:15] <eric_unterhausen> if you have a 1ppr spindle, what does 20% past actually mean? Would there be more pulses?
[22:36:55] <Aero-Tec2> yes to start on pulse, I would hope it would calculate distance traveled between index pulses and stop at the instructed distance
[22:37:41] <Tom_itx> is there just an index pulse or is there also an A B quadrature channels?
[22:38:34] <eric_unterhausen> I read 1 pulse per rev
[22:39:20] <Tom_itx> so did i but the 'index' channel is often used in threading. i didn't know if he had a full quad encoder or not
[22:39:23] <eric_unterhausen> going some percentage of a pulse open loop would require a pretty sophisticated controller
[22:39:39] <Aero-Tec2> eric_unterhausen, the 20% was just a example of calculating distance traveled between pulses and stopping 20% of time/distance traveled between pules
[22:39:49] <Aero-Tec2> yes to 1 PPR
[22:40:04] <eric_unterhausen> we had discussed something like that before they implemented it, but I don't know if it was done that way
[22:40:21] <Aero-Tec2> no A or B phase
[22:40:32] <Aero-Tec2> have not got then running yet
[22:41:06] <Aero-Tec2> was working on phase A with index but need to make chips so have to give up o0n getting it all set up
[22:41:07] <eric_unterhausen> how do you tell it 1ppr?
[22:41:11] <Tom_itx> you may need them if you want to continue past the index pulse so many degrees
[22:41:58] <eric_unterhausen> it's one thing at a constant speed, but open loop decel to a position sounds like a real tuning challenge
[22:42:00] <Aero-Tec2> that was what I was wondering
[22:43:15] <Tom_itx> i haven't tried threading yet
[22:43:27] <Tom_itx> but i think you will need the AB part as well as the index
[22:43:48] <Tom_itx> or calculate the thread depth you want
[22:44:02] <Aero-Tec2> it is a bigger lathe, not real big, 2 HP motor and lots of weight to chuck so it will have momentum so seep should be fairly steady
[22:44:26] <Tom_itx> spindle brake?
[22:44:28] <Aero-Tec2> I have done feed per rev with just index
[22:44:39] <Aero-Tec2> no spindle break
[22:44:51] <Aero-Tec2> cheap ass lathe
[22:45:26] <Aero-Tec2> will do a test for threading with just index
[22:45:55] <Aero-Tec2> some one wrote a custom hal of it to work
[22:46:08] <Aero-Tec2> some upload it for others to use
[22:46:54] <Aero-Tec2> is there a HAL and INI file upload section for sample and oddball files to be uploaded to?
[22:47:26] <Aero-Tec2> may help others with just a index spindle encoder
[22:49:04] <Aero-Tec2> wish he had put his name in the file so I could give him credit for his work
[22:49:44] <Aero-Tec2> it took a few tries but he did a great job in writing the file and having it work
[22:50:17] <Aero-Tec2> will try a threading run and see if it works
[22:51:29] <Aero-Tec2> could do a course thread test and see if the threading works for stopping at the right thread depth
[22:54:59] <Aero-Tec2> should I proof read or what
[22:55:22] <Aero-Tec2> sorry for the mistakes
[23:01:01] <eric_unterhausen> I went to cnczone the other day and it kept timing out
[23:01:10] <eric_unterhausen> server hamster overloaded
[23:03:59] <eric_unterhausen> wow, it's pointless over there
[23:07:13] <Aero-Tec2> could have been a DOS attack
[23:07:31] <eric_unterhausen> no, internal attack by whoever installed the software
[23:07:46] <Aero-Tec2> have you tried it again today?
[23:08:00] <eric_unterhausen> I was trying, but it doesn't even display any forums
[23:08:45] <eric_unterhausen> screw it, just closed the tab
[23:11:45] <eric_unterhausen> someone on linuxcnc forum trying to install machinekit using the beaglebone black itself
[23:11:51] <eric_unterhausen> I never would have thought of trying that
[23:12:01] <eric_unterhausen> looks like they fed the script the wrong option
[23:13:21] <eric_unterhausen> Aero-Tec2, the linuxcnc forum is a good place to post your hal files, I guess
[23:17:15] <Aero-Tec2> I can log into CNC zone but there does seem to be a problem
[23:19:14] <eric_unterhausen> I logged in too, but can't see any topics
[23:51:16] <Aero-Tec2> whats with linuxcnc.org?
[23:51:38] <Aero-Tec2> I can not log in or get my user name sent to me
[23:52:11] <Aero-Tec2> and what is with all of the anti spam check points
[23:52:26] <Aero-Tec2> 3 of them in one web page
[23:52:37] <Aero-Tec2> what is with that?
[23:53:21] <Aero-Tec2> need to get my log in info for linuxcnc but will not work
[23:54:23] <Aero-Tec2> I have tried before to log in and was not able to
[23:59:56] <Aero-Tec2> does linux cnc not like firefox?
