[01:27:22] <Valen> I've never had any difficulty talking to them
[02:28:56] <Deejay> moin
[05:08:38] <jthornton> morning
[05:09:17] <XXCoder> yo
[06:01:20] <jthornton> looks like a heat wave for a while
[06:01:32] <XXCoder> we had it here couple weeks ago
[06:01:46] <XXCoder> always have brief wave "preview" summer
[06:02:08] <XXCoder> May is yet another record month on heat
[06:02:26] <XXCoder> havent had a non-record month for well over a year now.
[06:05:16] <XXCoder> jthornton: some good news though
[06:05:33] <XXCoder> USA was over 50% powerered by solar power briefly.
[06:05:37] <XXCoder> we are getting there
[06:10:01] <jthornton> been talking to an old RC friend and he is all electric models now... I have one on the way lol
[06:10:12] <SpeedEvil> XXCoder: that seems unlikely
[06:10:18] <jthornton> batteries sure have improved
[06:10:18] <XXCoder> nice
[06:10:27] <XXCoder> SpeedEvil: what seems unlikely?
[06:10:39] <SpeedEvil> >50%
[06:10:39] <XXCoder> jthornton: yet still not enough :(
[06:12:43] <Sync> hm, crap
[06:12:47] <XXCoder> hmm might have misread, may have INCREASED by 50% which is quite different
[06:12:54] <jthornton> http://www.twistedhobbys.com/TH-32-EPP-Edge-540-HB-RCF-32-EDGE-HOT-BLUE-04.htm
[06:12:56] <Sync> somehow my scara config has issues
[06:13:13] <SpeedEvil> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electricity_sector_of_the_United_States
[06:13:21] <XXCoder> largest is Calfornia at 840 MW
[06:13:21] <Sync> the head is not moving in cartesian coords
[06:13:28] <SpeedEvil> ~800GW of conventional, ~100GW of solar installed
[06:13:29] <jthornton> archivist: where is that micro stepping myth link?
[06:13:39] <XXCoder> that was in 2015 old data
[06:14:27] <XXCoder> SpeedEvil: will let ya know if I find more info
[06:14:50] <archivist> myth
[06:14:53] <archivist> myths
[06:15:52] <SpeedEvil> yes - but if in 2015, solar totalled 1% of fossil energy output, it seems quite a stretch to hit 50%
[06:16:09] <XXCoder> SpeedEvil: indeed, its more likely I misread
[06:16:11] <SpeedEvil> I see lots of '50% more' headlines, which can easily be casually misreported
[06:16:22] <archivist> http://www.micromo.com/microstepping-myths-and-realities
[06:16:35] <XXCoder> ohh microstepping article
[06:16:37] <archivist> jthornton, ^^
[06:18:23] <archivist> ew they changed it to a grotty pdf wtf
[06:19:29] <archivist> I absoferkinlutly hate pdf
[06:19:45] <XXCoder> archivist: registion required
[06:19:51] <XXCoder> I put in all bullshit info
[06:20:05] <XXCoder> btw they apparently dont accept under 3 digit email like a@a.com
[06:20:08] <archivist> it used to be a plain html page
[06:21:41] <XXCoder> interesting read
[06:21:51] <SpeedEvil> archive.org is awesome
[06:23:25] <_methods> yoikes gonna be hot today and tomorrow
[06:23:29] <_methods> 96 and 98
[06:25:33] <jthornton> archivist: thanks
[06:28:41] <_methods> wow you see that crazy video fo the guys car blowin up at the gas station
[06:28:44] <archivist> updated my bookmark to point at the internet archive :)
[06:29:17] <_methods> http://www.whec.com/news/car-fire-rochester-ny/4169429/
[06:29:55] <XXCoder> ouch
[06:30:35] <_methods> looks like the rear window brake light sparked it
[06:31:58] <XXCoder> lol RHNB vs blendtex blender. neither won.
[06:32:26] <XXCoder> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQYzdARSCy4
[06:44:48] <Sync> not suprising XXCoder
[06:45:35] <XXCoder> that blender is pretty tough
[06:45:48] <XXCoder> though I wonder about smoke, is that motor being fried?
[06:50:52] <Sync> no
[06:51:33] <tjtr33> interesting lathe using flexures https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=150&v=uh-GVpbCJBs
[06:51:43] <tjtr33> in use https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=150&v=uh-GVpbCJBs
[06:51:47] <XXCoder> woot just finished first of college loans
[06:51:52] <XXCoder> one down, few more to go
[06:52:36] <XXCoder> it will all be paid off as soon as I'm 100 :P (kidding)
[06:52:52] <tjtr33> bad url ^^ http://web.mit.edu/mact/www/Projects/Classes/272/272Videos/272VideosIndex.html
[06:53:40] <XXCoder> interesting
[06:56:33] <jthornton> damn finally got drag and drop file sharing to work in debian...
[06:57:07] <Tom_itx> took long enough :)
[06:57:09] <Sync> > college loan
[06:58:01] <latheguy> I'm here to let you know I've managed to get a remap to python working on LinuxCNC
[06:58:38] <latheguy> Now I've got to figure out how to get the argspec values...
[06:59:23] <jthornton> when your done update the manuals
[06:59:55] <latheguy> I'd rather write some standalone manuals. I'll think about it, if I've got the time
[06:59:56] <Tom_itx> nice storms here last night
[07:01:01] <jthornton> rained in town for a bit not a drop out here... 100F today with a heat index of 107F
[07:01:24] <Tom_itx> yeah was 100ish here yesterday then the storms moved in
[07:03:00] <jthornton> had a blow out on the rear tire of the hoe yesterday... that will be expensive
[07:04:47] <archivist> can anybody remember an image print program to print over n pages for a large image to tape it up
[07:05:10] <latheguy> like tiling?
[07:05:14] <archivist> yes
[07:05:31] <XXCoder> woodgears sell "large print" progra,
[07:05:40] <latheguy> maybe you could script it on Python-fu of GIMP?
[07:06:18] <Tom_itx> acrobat says it can
[07:06:30] <Tom_itx> https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/print-posters-banners-acrobat-reader.html
[07:06:31] <archivist> just had to screen grab from an effin pdf to stitch in gimp
[07:06:53] <Tom_itx> open pdf in a newer acrobat
[07:06:53] <archivist> not in wndaz virus
[07:07:29] <Tom_itx> http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/how-generate-tiled-print-two-great-online-utilities.htm
[07:08:05] <latheguy> Does anyone know where to find a list of the methods of the emccanon module?
[07:08:18] <Tom_itx> https://community.linuxmint.com/software/view/pdfposter
[07:08:29] <_methods> jthornton: what else did you have to do besides the gvfs-fuse stuff
[07:08:45] <latheguy> forget about that question... just found it!
[07:10:06] <jthornton> ended up not using gvfs http://paste.ubuntu.com/17394506/
[07:10:42] <_methods> ah
[07:11:08] <Tom_itx> jthornton, that's not a widowmaner rim is it?
[07:11:34] <Tom_itx> maker*
[07:11:55] <_methods> so you just set up samba?
[07:18:29] <jthornton> Tom_itx: ?
[07:18:38] <jthornton> _methods: yes
[07:18:58] <_methods> interesting i'll have to try that next time
[07:19:36] <jthornton> the key missing thing in most online info is the force user and group lines
[07:19:42] <_methods> i think you will still need the fuse thing for non-samba shares
[07:19:58] <jthornton> what is a non-samba share?
[07:20:14] <_methods> just using ssh or nfs to connect to shares
[07:20:36] <Tom_itx> split rim style
[07:20:36] <jthornton> ah, never used ssh
[07:20:37] <_methods> like if you just wanted to mount a folder on another linux computer
[07:20:46] <_methods> that didn't have samba shares set up
[07:20:49] <jthornton> no it's a solid rim
[07:22:22] <Tom_itx> http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/attachment.php?attachmentid=92963&stc=1&d=1091995182
[07:22:23] * jthornton installs debian one more time to make sure the instructions are correct lol
[07:22:41] <Tom_itx> on those the ring would fly out and kill the tire changer
[07:23:21] <jthornton> yea, I don't think heavy equipment used those only trucks
[07:27:26] <Tom_itx> http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/files/tires/380324d1403539565-bead-breaker-rear-tractor-tire-p6030356-jpg
[07:27:33] <Tom_itx> hah, ya gotta do what ya gotta do
[07:30:02] <_methods> wow took me a couple minutes to wrap my brain around that
[07:30:24] <Tom_itx> i've run over the rubber before to break the bead
[07:30:37] <jthornton> lol, I just use the bucket on the hoe to break the bead
[07:30:52] <Tom_itx> or that :D
[07:31:20] <jthornton> I changed the rear tires on the Ferguson F40 by myself... pretty easy
[07:35:38] <Tom_itx> seal em back with propane?
[07:36:27] <Tom_itx> all the silly things we try...
[07:52:36] <plpower> guten tag HI im the new man in lothars shop
[07:52:52] <plpower> and having problems with mesa
[07:54:36] <plpower> PCW_ im told you are the near service men
[07:55:44] <plpower> hm2/hm2_5i25.0: Smart Serial Comms Error: There have been more than 1 errors in 10 thread executions at least 200 times. See other error messages for details.
[07:56:00] <plpower> is it posible to set a par on this issue
[07:58:49] <plpower> pcw_home: maybe you are not at workside
[10:07:45] <lair82> Good Morning Guys, I am wondering if it is possible to work on the operating system of an externally connected SSD using one of these, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817707380, basically go from my mint desktop, and start working in the wheezy environment that is on the ssd, without rebooting into the ssd?
[10:10:30] <jdh> I can't see the link but you ciuld boot the ssd in a VM which would be close
[10:16:00] <CaptHindsight> lair82: what do you mean by "work on"? Add, remove, rename, move files? Or actually run the environment on the SSD?
[10:22:09] <lair82> Run the environment, I need to modify the kernel, to meet some demands of the MB we are using, PCW gave me this for some of the problems we saw on our machining center we are running, after I did this all the demons went away, I have another VMC, at another shop, that we did at the same time as our machine, that still needs this stuff done to it. I just want to build another SSD, and take it down there and swap it out with whats i
[10:22:09] <lair82> n the machine, instead of standing around down there, I can sit here at my desk in the AC!!
[10:22:18] <lair82> http://freeby.mesanet.com/makert4.1.13 .
[10:22:32] <lair82> That is the link to fixing my problems ^^^^^
[10:25:02] <_methods> dd
[10:25:08] <_methods> if it's identical
[10:25:12] <_methods> you can just copy the drive
[11:09:53] <Deejay> re
[11:10:41] <__rob> lair82, as long as your motherboard can boot from USB, you should be fine
[12:54:46] <PCW_> plpower: some more information would be helpful to debug your problem (what hardware you have , linuxcnc version etc)
[13:07:46] <plpower> guten Abend Hi
[13:08:26] <plpower> jthornton: are you the manpage responsible
[13:10:03] <plpower> PCW_ coom error solved by rubbermount
[13:11:00] <plpower> someone shoudt edit the http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/man/man9/thcud.9.html its wrong on thc vs thcud
[13:11:10] <enleth> plpower: so you had a ground loop through the enclosure or something like that?
[13:11:48] <plpower> maybee i just did all stuff and find rubber the best
[13:12:05] <plpower> also new powerpacket to the plasma
[13:12:25] <plpower> fully new heading fans
[13:12:47] <plpower> changed D√úSE enclosure ...
[13:12:56] <PCW_> also make sure up update to LinuxCNC 2.7.4 (2.7.X before 2.7.4 have sserial error handling bugs)
[13:13:19] <plpower> agree i did
[13:13:35] <plpower> maximilian did a reduce to 2.6.12
[13:14:10] <Jymmm> serial bugs?! I say we grab the pitchforks and go after the evil bug writter!!!
[13:14:23] <plpower> PCW_ what is with the internal software there is new .bit ive seen on the mesafree
[13:14:49] <CaptHindsight> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrospinning going to make linuxcnc controlled electrospinner...
[13:15:05] <CaptHindsight> take over the textile and garment industry
[13:17:35] <CaptHindsight> to insure success, all the fibers will be made from bacon
[13:18:45] <plpower> I see there is a Developer channel do i need to post there the issue on the manpage side
[13:18:49] <PCW_> There are 2 independent fixes
[13:18:50] <Jymmm> there would be no product left to sell
[13:18:51] <PCW_> one is new bitfiles that have better noise immunity on the sserial interface (these are in 5i25.zip at mesa now)
[13:18:53] <PCW_> the other is that 2.7.X before 2.7.4 have a bug in error handling. If you still have sserisl errors it really means you
[13:18:54] <PCW_> have a severe ground loop issue
[13:19:44] <plpower> no last 3hourers no serial fault at all
[13:20:28] <CaptHindsight> Jymmm: imagine a wall made from bacon that spans across the entire US Mexican border
[13:20:32] <plpower> i need to close the shop back in a view min
[13:21:03] <CaptHindsight> Muslims would not touch it
[13:26:47] <plpower> ok back PCW_ there is a comerror76f bit inside shoudt i update that
[13:29:56] <plpower> the 5i25_7i76x2.bit has the same date
[13:30:53] <plpower> is there a documentation on what to use in under diffferend condicions
[13:35:46] <roycroft> my drive and idler wheels are here today, my motor is arriving tomorrow, and my vfd on monday
[13:35:53] <roycroft> this project is coming together a lot faster than i expected
[13:38:34] <plpower> ok i will finish first day here in the shop i think i will be more offen here

[16:49:03] <SpeedEvil> 2d printer
[16:52:40] <Zew> pancake printer
[16:52:56] <Zew> seen it, meh, mayb ea good thing to have at a daycare
[16:53:34] <Zew> just such low practical use
[16:53:47] <__rob> uneven pancakes
[16:53:49] <__rob> looks too slow
[16:53:54] <__rob> or you have to run it super low temp
[16:55:16] <CaptHindsight> I want one that prints 3d shapes not just flapjacks
[16:56:56] <neckro23> a waffle printer?
[16:57:10] <CaptHindsight> that to
[16:58:50] <yasnak> is there a general rule of thumb as to how long to dwell between clamp and unclamp commands?
[16:58:56] <CaptHindsight> lets say you want a turkey shaped waffle for thanksgiving, right now I'd have to settle for something carved from tofu
[18:36:58] <Jymmmm> CaptHindsight: No, but everyone else would
[18:37:15] <Jymmmm> CaptHindsight: Tofurkey?
[19:17:07] <JT-Shop> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8VHHcd0M_o
[19:18:36] <Tom_itx> how's excavating going?
[19:19:03] <JT-Shop> new rear tire today $600 back to digging tomorrow
[19:19:09] <JT-Shop> should be done soon
[19:19:33] <Tom_itx> what you puttin on the flat spot?
[23:15:55] <Polymorphism> https://www.amazon.com/Grizzly-H5606-9-Piece-Woodruff-Seat/dp/B00012YD1E
[23:49:03] <FloppyDisk> You're putting in keyways?
