[00:00:40] <Wolf_> yup lol
[00:01:15] <dioz> i just ordered a bunch of 50ng/ml thc tests
[00:01:23] <dioz> so i don't look like a moron when i go piss for this pipeline job
[00:01:36] <dioz> i'll be all studied up ;]
[00:01:41] <dioz> definitely gonna pass the test
[00:04:18] <Wolf_> lol
[00:04:20] * SpeedEvil wishes blood tests were easier.
[00:04:47] <SpeedEvil> Though the ones I want are odd - mitochondrial proteome panel amongst others
[02:25:48] <Deejay> moin
[02:25:53] <XXCoder> yo
[02:44:03] <MrSunshine> tried to release the machine from the bolts last night ... seems im somewhere betwene 0.5 - 1mm of twist in diferent directions over the whole table ... hoping it will be even better when i get the last supports in =)
[03:27:19] <XXCoder> https://youtu.be/cmvAWb26W1s
[03:27:20] <XXCoder> crazy
[04:08:06] <IchGucksLive> goor morning from non freeziong germany ;-)
[04:08:32] <IchGucksLive> JesusAlos: Did ypou got a hit on premio
[04:08:36] <XXCoder> hello from very dark and raining corner of country
[04:09:04] <IchGucksLive> XXCoder: did you got hit by ice storm
[04:09:18] <XXCoder> nah too far west, protected by mountains and ocean
[04:09:35] <XXCoder> if I walked west for a hour, I'd be dead by drowning in inlet sea
[04:10:07] <IchGucksLive> CA did also got a big hit by rain
[04:11:40] <IchGucksLive> so detroit motor show goes green E-Car
[04:12:00] <IchGucksLive> how does that fit into the T-System and his oil friends
[04:12:32] <IchGucksLive> Today Smartphone is 10Years old
[04:12:43] <IchGucksLive> what did dte world do bevor
[04:13:06] <IchGucksLive> seams now 25% of the world cand live wirhout it
[04:14:16] <IchGucksLive> till 6hr or so
[05:57:17] <jthornton> morning
[05:57:46] <XXCoder> yo
[05:59:07] <archivist> mah probe interface seems to work :)
[05:59:17] <jthornton> cool
[06:00:45] <archivist> slowly developing the code http://www.archivist.info/cnc/Arduino_Probe_Interface/
[06:03:55] <jthornton> what is probe.ino? I get a not found
[06:04:41] <archivist> I just replaced it try again
[06:04:54] <archivist> it is the arguino code
[06:04:57] <jthornton> works now
[06:05:21] <jthornton> how quick one forgets an extension lol
[06:05:55] <archivist> I wondered why it was the old version from this morning, turns out I was uploading from the other pc to the wrong dir
[06:09:39] <archivist> measure the contact R and wait for it to rise to a threshold, then trigger
[06:09:42] <jthornton> it's a balmy 19F this morning
[06:10:31] <jthornton> rain starting tonight and for the next 5 days yuck
[06:11:12] <XXCoder> jthornton: my wall where power box is warmer now at 60f
[06:11:17] <XXCoder> it used to be 50f all time
[06:11:25] <XXCoder> taping the gaps helped a little
[06:11:30] <jthornton> nice
[06:11:45] <XXCoder> yeah
[06:12:03] <archivist> what helped here was retiring so I could put on some heating
[06:14:06] <XXCoder> I am likely to work till I die
[06:14:26] <Deejay> too much free time is boring!
[06:15:19] <archivist> now I have time to complete my book cataloguing, no time for boring
[06:15:41] <archivist> and arrrguino and cmm and
[06:15:43] <XXCoder> compiling listb of your library?
[06:16:03] <XXCoder> I recommand getting cuecat usb version, makes adding books to library much faster.
[06:16:06] <archivist> 27k+ items so far
[06:16:14] <XXCoder> I added over 500 books in just a hour
[06:17:18] <archivist> most of my stuff is old pre barcode era, I add a barcode
[06:17:46] <XXCoder> ahh yea cuecat'd be not very useful unless you plan to have futher use behind adding books
[06:18:08] <XXCoder> by then you probably would nbeed bit more expensive hand type
[06:18:28] <archivist> I have wifi barcode reader and all the shelves are barcoded so there is a map
[06:19:44] <archivist> http://www.collection.archivist.info/shelfview.php?src=artitle&locid=197
[06:20:35] <XXCoder> nicer
[09:26:15] <MacGalempsy> morning gents
[09:30:38] <JT-Shop> morning
[09:30:59] <gregcnc> anyone thawing out?
[09:31:38] <MacGalempsy> it started melting away yesterday.
[09:33:21] <MacGalempsy> JT-Shop: how is the stove working out?
[09:35:00] <JT-Shop> all three are burning this morning :)
[09:37:10] <JT-Shop> put the free small stove in the new shop, swapped it the next day with the wonderwood in the garage now they are all in the right place for the job
[09:41:38] <MacGalempsy> do you guys have natural gas out there?
[09:42:34] <archivist> after eating beans yes
[09:42:59] <MacGalempsy> good day archivist, just make sure they are low in sulfur content
[09:45:32] <IchGucksLive> hi ;-)
[09:46:14] <IchGucksLive> light rain here in germany
[09:46:30] <MacGalempsy> low gravity today?
[09:46:42] <MacGalempsy> j/k
[09:47:07] <IchGucksLive> im closing early as icy roads are expected if night falls
[09:47:22] <gregcnc> night is optional today?
[09:47:25] <IchGucksLive> so stay save and warm till later
[09:47:25] <MacGalempsy> yuck. you have a store?
[09:47:40] <IchGucksLive> no
[09:47:41] <archivist> night is not optional
[09:48:06] <MacGalempsy> if you were far enough north and on the move, it could be
[09:48:34] <gregcnc> probably south
[09:49:13] <JT-Shop> MacGalempsy: no, only propane
[09:53:50] <MacGalempsy> JT-Shop: are you running your RP3 on linux yet?
[09:53:55] <MacGalempsy> well linuxcnc
[10:58:14] <archivist> now tested the probe interface on 4 probes, only one had "good" contacts seems to deal with all but completely buggered open
[11:02:43] <Wolf_> that sounds great
[11:06:03] <archivist> the TP2 probe I got with the CMM was iffy on the machine, sometimes it remains open, another TP2 the seller sent me seems ok, a Valeron has high spring pressure, terrible lobing but the interface works
[11:06:59] <archivist> LP2 I got off ebay is very low resistance, I think it must have been nearly new considering the condition
[11:07:26] <Wolf_> I’ll have to take a look at the page and hook some stuff up and see how it does on the mp1s
[11:07:42] <archivist> I updated the page, code is there
[11:09:13] <archivist> I think it needs a little interface pcb for general probe testing work
[11:09:59] <Wolf_> I’ll have to clean off the desk first, been messing with how to use a arduino to control the rs232 on a hitachi VK-454N camera
[11:10:22] <Wolf_> and rs485 on a PTZ dome
[11:11:24] <archivist> I understand desk piles and the pro mini pins shorting on random clutter and it resetting
[11:15:06] <Wolf_> fun that I got this PTZ working, only kick in the ass was getting a rs485 adapter instead of a rs422 4 wire because right now I can’t read the settings off the PTZ board..
[11:18:39] <archivist> a bit of info I have failed to find is the right sort of wetting current/voltage for probe contacts
[11:19:40] <Jymmm> 485? For a camera?
[11:20:10] <Wolf_> yeah, former state highway camera
[11:20:32] <Jymmm> ah. And how far out are you running it?
[11:20:43] <archivist> control info for pointing zoom/focus
[11:20:49] <Jymmm> cabling wise
[11:20:53] <Wolf_> about 2 feet right now :P
[11:21:02] <Jymmm> heh
[11:21:14] <Wolf_> http://www.vicon-security.com/surveyorvft-cameras/
[11:21:49] <Wolf_> SVFT-PRS23 housing is impressive
[11:22:30] <Jymmm> IP66, not even IP68?
[11:22:58] <Wolf_> this one says IP67
[11:23:18] <Jymmm> ah
[11:23:19] <Wolf_> seeing its 5psig nitrogen filled housing
[11:24:34] <Wolf_> I need to see if I can get my hands on a couple more to mess with
[11:25:12] <Jymmm> Wolf_: Where sthe closest freeway <grin>
[11:25:40] <Jymmm> Wolf_: and are you afraid of heights?
[11:26:26] <Wolf_> my plan is to pull the cam out of one and mount in and a 7” lcd in place of a spotting scope for a box setup like this one (not mine) https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/0c/34/b6/0c34b69a50b6832f6c558d5d067d62dc.jpg
[11:27:02] <dioz> yo Wolf_ you got anymore of them pixels?
[11:27:04] <dioz> ;]
[11:27:05] <dioz> jk
[11:27:15] <dioz> i can't see the picture of your family on the cabinet clearly
[11:27:20] <dioz> idk if your wife is hot or not
[11:27:42] <Wolf_> guess you missed the (not mine) part...
[11:27:43] <dioz> oh that isn't your picture
[11:27:46] <dioz> yah i just read that
[11:27:49] <Wolf_> lol
[11:27:51] <dioz> nvm carry on
[11:28:49] <Wolf_> should be fun to see the WTF looks when I pull the setup out at league or match day =D
[11:31:40] <dioz> i like having unique shit that people are envious of
[11:31:42] <dioz> idk why
[11:31:46] <dioz> makes me FEEEEl GOOOD
[11:33:08] <Wolf_> funny part is I’m doing is cause I don’t want to spend $200+ on a good spotting scope with a shitty small eye box to look in to and I have this crap just sitting around already
[11:33:17] <MacGalempsy> nothing like a high quality 22lg
[11:33:22] <MacGalempsy> lr
[11:34:18] <Wolf_> last week http://i.imgur.com/qJb6kAn.jpg
[11:35:14] <dioz> i'd say nice grouping
[11:35:18] <dioz> but idk wtf that even means
[11:35:20] <MacGalempsy> distance?
[11:35:23] <dioz> i just heard it on tv
[11:35:49] <Wolf_> 25yr
[11:35:57] <MacGalempsy> standup pistol?
[11:36:00] <Wolf_> http://i.imgur.com/1Fc4ue7.jpg
[11:36:04] <Wolf_> yeah
[11:36:17] <MacGalempsy> nice. I like the eotech
[11:36:23] <Wolf_> http://i.imgur.com/Ixg9jTi.jpg lead slinger
[11:36:58] <dioz> fuck bud i'd shoot that stapler
[11:37:10] <dioz> i'm pro w/ one of those bastards
[11:37:16] <MacGalempsy> cool. we were supposed to go sight in this 416 that my buddy got for xmas, but the rings didnt come in
[11:38:54] <MacGalempsy> Wolf_: I got one of these in 22LR https://www.gunsamerica.com/UserImages/173585/927960960/wm_6867504.jpg
[11:39:08] <MacGalempsy> no compensator atm
[11:39:42] <Wolf_> nice
[11:39:51] <Wolf_> I have mostly bolt guns
[11:40:44] <MacGalempsy> we did a s/n inventory before leaving for winter break. our rifles are across the board, but the pistols are 9s and a 40sw
[11:42:10] <Wolf_> hehe, I need to get a 9mm… I don’t even own one right now
[11:42:38] <Wolf_> like 50~ rifles and shottys
[11:43:04] <MacGalempsy> yeah baby, its funny how the guns just start to add up.
[11:43:26] <MacGalempsy> we havent even bought anything new in the last few years and we are at like 20 or something like that
[11:44:44] <Wolf_> I need to sell off some stuff, partly because half of the stuff was my dads and I have little interest in them
[11:45:41] <MacGalempsy> trade for CNC equip
[11:47:31] <Wolf_> that and upgrades, I really want a sr-25 type rifle
[11:54:55] <Wolf_> MacGalempsy: you have a micro center near you?
[11:55:27] <Wolf_> r pi 3 $29 there...
[11:55:42] <MacGalempsy> unfortunately the highlight of our area is a RadioShack
[11:56:08] <MacGalempsy> when we went to dallas and I saw a fry's I just about bust a nut
[11:56:41] <MacGalempsy> brb going to check the mail for caps
[11:59:23] <MacGalempsy> dang....
[11:59:31] <MacGalempsy> cold and no caps
[12:25:43] <IchGucksLive> hi
[12:32:53] <MacGalempsy> hi
[12:33:22] <IchGucksLive> weather anounces no work tomorrow as icy road will be a no go
[12:33:47] <MacGalempsy> so what are you going to do?
[12:34:22] <IchGucksLive> if so im going to the local school and refit some cnc stuff with weezy
[12:34:32] <IchGucksLive> still on 10.04
[12:37:20] <IchGucksLive> weather forcast is bad http://www.unwetterzentrale.de/uwz/rlpindex.html
[12:38:20] <roycroft> i am working from home again
[12:38:25] <roycroft> everything is shut down again
[12:38:37] <IchGucksLive> i got a deep hole in the thumb as cabeling the whole day
[12:38:41] <roycroft> it is above freezing, and has been since yesterday afternoon, but the roads are full of slushy chunks of ice
[12:39:46] <IchGucksLive> 6 4 axis mashines are configurd and up and runinng
[12:40:08] <IchGucksLive> i will hit the deathline 28th jan 2017 in the universety opening
[13:05:07] <IchGucksLive> GN8
[15:40:24] <tiwake> http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Valve-What-Games-RadeonSI-Fails
[16:08:05] <jasonsmr> how to setup a symetric/sync 2-motor Y-axis
[16:08:31] <jasonsmr> any ideas?
[16:11:18] <pcw_mesa> you probably want to use master (2.8) since it supports gantry configs with homing natively
[16:21:29] <KimK_laptop> This question is timely, would master also support "gantryed" (paired) rotaries? For example, B and B' ?
[16:21:31] <Deejay> gn8
[16:23:00] <KimK_laptop> (Manual config would be OK, doesn't have to autoconfig.)
[16:34:29] <jasonsmr> woha, there first Im reading a forum that says I should remove all wheezy repos in synaptic? I have not used synaptic for a upgrade before.
[16:34:52] <cradek> that sounds like bad advice
[16:35:00] <cradek> (sometimes forums have that)
[16:35:45] <jasonsmr> should I comment out all wheezy repos in the /etc/apt/sources.list and start editing the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linuxcnc.list?
[16:36:15] <jasonsmr> anyone done this upgrade to 2.8 from 2.7 before?
[16:37:25] <jasonsmr> yes bad advice is what I thought
[16:39:55] <jasonsmr> in sources.list I have wheezy main contrib non-free\ src too \ wheezy-updates main contrib non-free\ src and security too\
[16:40:19] <cradek> what is your goal? why are you editing sources.list?
[16:43:02] <jasonsmr> well I was going to move from 2.7 to 2.8 version the gantry system that Im building was reportivly supported \\with dual motors for Y-axis
[16:43:51] <jasonsmr> I have the breakout card all rigged up and the motors connected, I just havent played aroud with the linuxcnc portion as of yet
[16:44:23] <jasonsmr> on the breakout card I have the fourth motor rigged as A-axis
[16:45:13] <jasonsmr> cheers Ifyou can help me out
[16:46:56] <jasonsmr> Im going to assume that you mean I dont require a source.list edit only. linuxcnc.list?
[16:47:48] <jasonsmr> seems benign
[17:43:59] <vitali> quit
[17:44:03] <vitali> quit:
[17:44:21] <Tom_itx> /quit
[17:50:44] <JT-Shop2> Tom_itx: you get the < & > fix?
[17:51:17] <Tom_itx> yup it's runnung
[17:53:38] * Tom_itx licks the chicken off his fingers and tries again..
[17:54:34] <JT-Shop2> log
[17:54:34] <c-log> JT-Shop2: Today's Log http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:82/~tom-itx/irc/logs/%23linuxcnc/2017-01-09.html
[17:55:10] <JT-Shop2> hmm the backslash makes a question mark
[17:55:19] <JT-Shop2> but the < & > is correct now
[17:55:30] <Tom_itx> more to do ehh?
[17:55:48] <Tom_itx> check how the other one parsed it
[17:55:58] <JT-Shop2> just a tad
[17:56:26] <JT-Shop2> zlog
[17:56:41] <JT-Shop2> same thing
[17:57:08] <Tom_itx> the ? is an unprintable character
[17:57:11] <Tom_itx> that's why
[17:57:22] <Tom_itx> alt 255
[17:57:33] <JT-Shop2> what does the log show for the /
[17:57:42] <Tom_itx> otherwise you can't show a '/' at the beginning of a line
[17:58:00] <Tom_itx> it shows '/quit
[17:58:03] <Tom_itx> '
[17:58:37] <Tom_itx> same on both
[17:58:39] <JT-Shop2> / at the beginning does not even show up because it's caught by the irc I think
[17:58:50] <Tom_itx> that's why i add the alt 255
[17:58:52] <Tom_itx> so it will
[17:58:57] <Tom_itx> /quit
[17:59:14] <Tom_itx> you can't just use a space
[17:59:24] <JT-Shop2> /quit
[17:59:39] <Tom_itx> that part is ok
[17:59:56] <JT-Shop2> ah the alt 255 is the ?
[18:00:01] <Tom_itx> yes
[18:00:05] <JT-Shop2> ok got it
[18:00:33] * JT-Shop2 goes back to scaffold erection
[18:03:20] <Jymmm> JT-Shop2: scaffold for???
[18:04:16] <_methods> erection
[18:04:43] <_methods> duh
[18:04:56] <Jymmm> OH, autocoplete musta did a s/viagra/scaffold
[18:06:14] <_methods> hehe
[18:07:06] <Tom_itx> Jymmm haven't floated away yet?
[18:08:18] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: ask in an hour
[20:14:59] <BeachBumPete> Who is the math whiz here? ;)
[20:15:22] <Tom_itx> workin on kids homework again?
[20:15:27] <BeachBumPete> yup
[20:15:35] <BeachBumPete> this ones kickin' my azz
[20:15:58] <BeachBumPete> its a solve by substitution equation
[20:16:43] <BeachBumPete> I can't seem to get the Y for some reason
[20:17:13] <Tom_itx> Y not?
[20:17:24] <BeachBumPete> 8x-7y=-2,-2x-3y=10
[20:17:48] <Tom_itx> what are you solving for?
[20:17:49] <Tom_itx> Y?
[20:17:52] <BeachBumPete> both
[20:18:06] <Tom_itx> oh i see now
[20:18:07] <BeachBumPete> you basically substitute them
[20:18:13] <Tom_itx> for a plot?
[20:18:16] <BeachBumPete> I actually have the answer
[20:18:26] <BeachBumPete> but I can't see WHY the answer is correct
[20:18:31] <BeachBumPete> for Y
[20:19:18] <BeachBumPete> its been so long since I did this stuff I don't remember it too well.
[20:20:14] <Tom_itx> just a sec
[20:22:06] <Tom_itx> what did you get?
[20:22:12] <BeachBumPete> I get Y is 6 but its apparently -2
[20:22:33] <Tom_itx> Y = -2 X = -2
[20:22:39] <BeachBumPete> yup
[20:22:47] <BeachBumPete> how did you get the Y?
[20:23:37] <BeachBumPete> you are supposed to multiply by the common factor which is 21 by reversing the 7 and 3
[20:23:50] <Tom_itx> mult -2x -3y = 10 by 4. that will cancel out the X
[20:24:04] <Tom_itx> then solve for Y
[20:24:32] <BeachBumPete> 4? Where did you get the 4?
[20:25:00] <Tom_itx> because it's common between 8 and -2
[20:25:06] <BeachBumPete> aah shit
[20:25:11] <Wolf_> turn it in to 8x-7y=-2 and -8x-12y=40
[20:25:28] <Tom_itx> ^^^
[20:26:26] <BeachBumPete> OK
[20:26:35] <BeachBumPete> I was using 16
[20:27:09] <BeachBumPete> or the 8 and 2 rather
[20:27:19] <BeachBumPete> either way that works thanks amn
[20:27:21] <BeachBumPete> man
[20:28:01] <Wolf_> now let me count all the times I’ve needed math like that since high school…
[20:28:10] <BeachBumPete> IKR
[20:28:54] <BeachBumPete> the only thing familiar about it to me is the graphing along X and Y makes me thing of my CNC table LOL
[20:29:07] <Wolf_> lol
[20:33:50] <Tom_itx> 16 works, it just takes longer to get there
[20:34:08] <BeachBumPete> not for me I got 6
[20:34:27] <BeachBumPete> not sure what I did wrong but beat my head against it for awhile LOL
[20:39:15] <BeachBumPete> In case it was unclear I am NOT a mathemetician over here ;)
[20:39:55] <Tom_itx> me either
[20:40:52] <BeachBumPete> yeah but you got it right
[21:41:08] <pfred1> fucking IRC idle channels I hate 'em
[21:46:34] <MacGalempsy> the night is going that well, huh?
[21:47:16] <Jymmm> idle channels?
[21:47:46] <MacGalempsy> it could be worse, like the wife watching the Bachelor in the background
[21:48:36] <pfred1> actually I found one live one on the channel
[21:48:46] <pfred1> out of hundreds logged in
[21:56:17] <MacGalempsy> anyone familiar with how to set a pin to go positive when a s32 value = x?
[21:59:36] <pfred1> pin?
[21:59:36] <MacGalempsy> maybe a conditional in classicladder? when count=x
[22:00:34] <MacGalempsy> signal
[22:01:38] <MacGalempsy> I think the comparison will work in there. like: motor-on while count does not equal X
[22:01:59] <MacGalempsy> then use the near component to give a little slack
[22:03:05] <Tom_itx> will it ever reverse?
[22:03:46] <MacGalempsy> as of now, the motor is only wired in one direction, but with the index channel, I can reset the counter on the index pulse
[22:04:21] <MacGalempsy> perhaps wiring up another relay to reverse the motor would help speed up the pocket search
[22:04:45] <MacGalempsy> https://forum.linuxcnc.org/25-classicladder/32099-benchman-xt-20-tool-atc
[22:04:52] <MacGalempsy> those are the variables I have so far
[22:05:36] <pfred1> I need to experiment a little with my machine see what putting limit switches on it is going to entail
[22:06:19] <MacGalempsy> what kind of machine do you have?
[22:06:28] <pfred1> a homemade router
[22:06:39] <pfred1> parallel port
[22:07:29] <MacGalempsy> oh, yeah, that wood one. it should be pretty easy.
[22:07:45] <pfred1> easy for someone that's done it before
[22:07:56] <pfred1> I never tried any of the inputs of my BOB
[22:08:13] <pfred1> I kind of glossed over that whole part of the circuit so I don't even know if it works, or not
[22:08:42] <pfred1> it wasn't so important at the time
[22:08:47] <MacGalempsy> you should be able to wire them all in series, then link all the signals together
[22:09:08] <pfred1> yeah if the inputs of my BOB work
[22:09:15] <MacGalempsy> it should only take one input on the bob
[22:09:29] <pfred1> I've never tested any of them out
[22:09:37] <MacGalempsy> does the machine operate yet?
[22:09:46] <pfred1> oh sure the outputs all work
[22:09:58] <pfred1> but the circuitry is different on the inputs
[22:10:11] <pfred1> I made my own BOB
[22:10:16] <MacGalempsy> oh
[22:10:35] <pfred1> someplace i have the schematic
[22:11:05] <pfred1> damn I put it up on imageshack
[22:11:40] <MacGalempsy> lol. fyi I started in on this mess in 2013 and still feel like an idiot most of the time.
[22:12:07] <pfred1> hmm even a picture of my BOB on imgur no longer exists
[22:12:53] <pfred1> here's an old pic of my BOB on my bench when I was testing it out http://i.imgur.com/dNu0No8.jpg
[22:13:36] <pfred1> BOB's bottom http://i.imgur.com/keNsHow.jpg
[22:13:52] <MacGalempsy> yowzers!
[22:14:09] <pfred1> BOB has a sexy posterior
[22:14:31] <pfred1> that was after i fanned the outputs out
[22:15:54] <pfred1> but I've never tried any of the inputs
[22:16:09] <pfred1> to see if they work or pass a signal
[22:16:36] <pfred1> it is just something I've never had the occasion to do yet
[22:17:44] <pfred1> is there a program in LinuxCNC that displays the port logic levels?
[22:18:07] <pfred1> I could swear there was
[22:18:32] <cradek> halmeter and halscope both do that and much more
[22:18:44] <MacGalempsy> how about just wiring up a button and test the signal?
[22:19:01] <pfred1> MacGalempsy I need to see that the computer is reading it
[22:19:32] <pfred1> cradek OK I'll check those out
[22:19:40] <MacGalempsy> http://linuxcnc.org/lucid/docs/2.6/html/hal/basic_hal.html#_hal_commands_a_id_sec_hal_commands_a
[22:19:59] <pfred1> this is something that I've wondered about for a while
[22:20:13] <pfred1> just what all the inputs were doing
[22:21:10] <pfred1> of course Eagle can't open up my old schematic files
[22:21:48] <pfred1> I always loved the backwards incompatibility of this software
[22:22:24] <Wolf_> I remember that from teh last time I upgraded eagle...
[22:22:37] <pfred1> Wolf_ it has always been like that
[22:22:38] <Wolf_> had to load a middle version to convert all the files
[22:23:05] <pfred1> wow vrsions that could read older files?
[22:23:13] <pfred1> I never got so lucky
[22:23:47] <pfred1> yeah it is super inconsiderate of the devs to not have a way of converting files
[22:24:03] <Wolf_> yeah, installed latest, look at the error message, install version mention in error, convert files or install another older version, repeat
[22:24:58] <pfred1> the error message I'm getting just says, Invalad data in file
[22:25:15] <Wolf_> or go torrent a “trial” of Altium...
[22:26:43] <pfred1> I just remembered where I have a screenshot of the schematic
[22:27:41] <pfred1> https://cdn.instructables.com/ORIG/FRD/NKFY/GT9U8RPL/FRDNKFYGT9U8RPL.png
[22:28:47] <pfred1> I don't know if those inputs work at all
[22:30:05] <pfred1> I was more interested in step outputs at the time
[22:31:03] <pfred1> it looks like I planned on a ground making a low signal
[22:31:08] <Wolf_> heh, I still have eagle files from ’08
[22:31:43] <Wolf_> but I also have version 5.11 and 7.2 installed…
[22:31:55] <MacGalempsy> good night guys
[22:32:30] <pfred1> I have version 5.12.0 installed
[22:32:49] <pfred1> I tried to build kiCAD but that failed
[22:33:00] <pfred1> I will have to give ti another shot
[22:34:22] <pfred1> check out this whackiness http://i.imgur.com/MwbyoY2.png
[22:35:03] <pfred1> OpenSCAD PyCAM and CAMtronics
[22:35:31] <pfred1> because Autodesk doesn't support Linux
[22:37:18] <pfred1> CAMotics even who can keep all of this stuff straight?
[22:37:58] <pfred1> now i want to try to get something called pypy going to see if I can't get PyCAM to run faster
[22:42:54] <pfred1> I knew I've seen that name someplace
[22:44:54] <pfred1> they're a PyCAM dev
[22:50:22] <Wolf_> archivist: http://www.ebay.com/itm/renishaw-mp15-interface-/122296186918? lol guess what I just ended up ordering
[23:46:23] <ve7it> anyone know of a gcode wizard for using G76 threading? All I want is a 5/8 x 11 in mild steel without breaking things
[23:49:11] <Jymmm> ve7it: Anyof these ???? http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Simple_LinuxCNC_G-Code_Generators
[23:51:01] <ve7it> Hi Jymmm ... just had a look there...... no luck. Maybe a good project when I have nothing to do:}
[23:51:18] <Jymmm> ve7it: I tried =)
[23:51:25] <Jymmm> ve7it: how goes?
[23:52:19] <ve7it> well, its getting cold here again.... we dont like the arctic invading la la land
[23:53:19] <Jymmm> Tell me about it, lost power for a few hours yeasterday, buttass cold tonight
[23:53:34] <ve7it> it was above freezing today, but the rest of the week looks pretty icy
[23:55:03] <ve7it> I am going through an old wood pile (aged about 5 years) and every second piece has a big ass hornet sleeping on it.... they are quite happy when warmed up next to the wood stove
[23:55:11] <Jymmm> I'm working on a rocket mass stove for the garage, but not there yet
[23:55:55] <Jymmm> And THATS why I never get into the wood pile without gloves
[23:56:29] <ve7it> better than finding a rattler I guess
[23:56:40] <Jymmm> eh
[23:56:43] <Jymmm> lol
[23:58:53] <ve7it> my spindle motor died... waiting for new run cap to show up... in the mean time, I found an old motor that works for now if I keep the spindle speed down.
