03:12 AM Deejay: moin
05:34 AM jthornton: morning
05:40 AM Tom_itx: morning
05:40 AM Deejay: morning
05:42 AM XXCoder: morning
05:52 AM BitEvil is now known as SpeedEvil
05:58 AM XXCoder: google.com has game may not apply for your regon
06:01 AM XXCoder: its multiplayer and I won
06:01 AM XXCoder: 204 spirits highest even in my own team
06:01 AM XXCoder: next is 131 and 73 lol
06:01 AM XXCoder: other team 189 128 76
06:08 AM jthornton: hmm I've figured out why my library won't work now to figure out why it's not installed in /home/pi/.local/lib/python3.5/site-packages
06:28 AM miss0r: I'm looking for an icon/pictogram of a steel strength test - the one where you pull something apart. Do you guys have an idea where I can find stuff like that?
06:28 AM miss0r: (making a t-shirt for a friend)
06:29 AM miss0r: also, I'm not even sure what the english term is, perhaps that could help as well :)
06:29 AM XXCoder: isnt there standard material shape for that? is that what you mean?
06:30 AM SpeedEvil: Outline of tensile test coupon with fracture/neck?
06:30 AM jthornton: tensile test
06:30 AM SpeedEvil: https://www.admet.com/effect-specimen-geometry-tensile-testing-results/
06:30 AM miss0r: something like that, yeah
06:31 AM XXCoder: http://www.baileymetalprocessing.com/images/default-source/Metalk/tensile6.png?sfvrsn=0 ?
06:32 AM XXCoder: or maybe http://testlabs.ca/wp-content/uploads/testing-tensile-test-specimens-2867.jpg
06:32 AM miss0r: A friend of mine; ex soldier. got a job where he does the stress test of steel. He was blown up in afghanistan(realy badly, sole survivor out of 5 in an APC), he started hating the booms from the steel being torn apart, now he has come to the job.. So I'm going to make him a t-shirt with a picture like that, and a text saying "Destroyer of stuff.. and things"
06:33 AM SpeedEvil: Perhaps several coupons exhibiting different failures
06:33 AM miss0r: if I could find a picture of what you posted lastly, xxcoder, just in "pictogram" form, that would be cool
06:33 AM SpeedEvil: With brittle, necked, original, ...
06:33 AM miss0r: sure - but my skills are limited to paint ish
06:33 AM SpeedEvil: 'find' ? It's five lines or so.
06:33 AM miss0r: so, I was hoping to find something online :)
06:34 AM SpeedEvil: And they are not artistic lines which have to look right, but simple geometries
06:34 AM miss0r: I'll have a go at paint then :)
06:35 AM XXCoder: which one?
06:35 AM XXCoder: I linked to 2 pictures :)
06:35 AM miss0r: the 'flat bar' one
06:35 AM miss0r: http://www.baileymetalprocessing.com/images/default-source/Metalk/tensile6.png?sfvrsn=0
06:36 AM XXCoder: ahh yeah simple enough to remove some unnesscary stuff
06:36 AM XXCoder: maybe the table below remove
06:36 AM miss0r: I've decided to model one in MasterCAM
06:36 AM miss0r: That I should be able to do
06:37 AM XXCoder: ah more 3d style. yeah that sheet should help you easily make one
06:38 AM miss0r: hehe.. not 3D :) just a simple flat.
06:38 AM miss0r: the t-shirt guy is very limited to what he accepts
06:38 AM XXCoder: lol ok
06:43 AM miss0r: Do any of you know how to make 'null' color in pain? :)
06:43 AM miss0r: for some reason it is determined to put a 'frame' around the print on the t-shirt
06:43 AM XXCoder: set alpha to 0
06:44 AM XXCoder: paint areas you wanna be transparent
06:44 AM XXCoder: file format must support it, likely PNG
06:44 AM miss0r: alright, giving it a go
06:46 AM miss0r: apparently I cannot.
06:47 AM XXCoder: any hints on site how to transparent areas
06:47 AM SpeedEvil: CNC out a bit of wood, apply ink to wood, apply wood to t-shirt.
06:47 AM miss0r: I'm reading on google. and it would seem I'd need to download seprate software to do the transparent part in ms paint :]
06:48 AM miss0r: SpeedEvil: I would, but my cnc is pretty occupied at the moment
06:48 AM XXCoder: wtf
06:48 AM XXCoder: youre using ms paint?
06:48 AM miss0r: Its all i've got on this PC
06:48 AM XXCoder: inkscape is free
06:48 AM XXCoder: you could make vector image and export
06:48 AM miss0r: sure, but I still don't have it on here :]
06:49 AM XXCoder: got internet? :)
06:49 AM miss0r: Is that a trick question? :)
06:49 AM XXCoder: https://inkscape.org/release/0.92.3/
06:49 AM miss0r: I'll have to pick up on it later. I'll download inkscape
06:49 AM XXCoder: lol ok
06:58 AM jthornton: YIPPIE my library installs to the right place with pip3
06:58 AM XXCoder: :)
06:58 AM jthornton: on to coding...
06:59 AM jthornton: hmm my new pop door is more on time opening and closing than the old one :)
07:03 AM Tom_itx: 49F Hi 57
08:07 AM Jin|away is now known as Jin^eLD
10:32 AM skunkworks: linux is awesome
10:37 AM FinboySlick: skunkworks: You said it.
10:38 AM FinboySlick: skunkworks: Now if we could just get rid of systemd, things would be even better.
10:51 AM skunkworks: eh - it is all goog :)
10:51 AM skunkworks: good
11:55 AM fragalot: Hi
12:40 PM JT-Shop: hi
12:43 PM Tom_itx: wow, real chatty day
12:46 PM * Loetmichel is not feeling well... i think i will have a full blown cold today. cant even speak at the moment. It was hard enough to work thru the day today, even without my usual comments here ;)
01:06 PM fragalot: Loetmichel: have some of JT-Shop's famous chicken soup
01:14 PM SpeedEvil: https://i.imgur.com/lrf3vXp.jpg UPS delivers.
01:19 PM fragalot: good door
01:23 PM gloops: whats the 5 axis CAM addon gregcnc suggests to try, ive lost the link and forgot what its called
01:25 PM gregcnc: http://www.cnc-toolkit.com/
01:27 PM gloops: thanks again, may help someone out
01:27 PM CaptHindsight: SpeedEvil: was not packed properly, it should have at least 50mm of cushion on all sides
01:33 PM Tom_itx: gregcnc, have you used that?
01:33 PM Loetmichel: speedevil: indeed. how dou you manage to break a door?
01:33 PM Loetmichel: or was it the "inner door" cardboard core with some veneer on the outside?
01:33 PM gregcnc: I have not. it's not an ideal CAM, but seems capable if you figure it out. Some nice parts have been made with it, though i don't know how much effort was involved
01:35 PM roycroft: i have a parcel that was due yesterday
01:35 PM roycroft: through late last night the ups website was showing the status of "delivery by the end of the day"
01:35 PM roycroft: i stopped believing that around 11pm
01:35 PM Rab: Hmm, the CNC Toolkit download link leads to a deleted Google Code project.
01:35 PM fragalot: they didn't say what day
01:35 PM roycroft: then, this morning, the status was updated to "preparing for delivery"
01:35 PM roycroft: they did, fragalot
01:35 PM fragalot: prove it
01:36 PM roycroft: i assume that this morning they were scooping up as many peices as they could find, stuffing them back into the box, and wrapping the whole thing with a bunch of tape
01:36 PM roycroft: the status is now "out for delivery"
01:37 PM roycroft: i've never seen a status of "preparing for delivery" before
01:37 PM jthornton: maybe that means moving from the wrong truck to the right truck?
01:37 PM fragalot: mine typically go from "package announced" to "gone missing"
01:38 PM roycroft: possibly
01:38 PM roycroft: but i rather fancy the notion that they're trying to reconstruct the package
01:38 PM CaptHindsight: I once had a package with status: Left with military guard at station.
01:38 PM fragalot: i've had one package that showed up after almost one year
01:38 PM CaptHindsight: but I didn't have one
01:38 PM roycroft: especially since it's nothing time-sensitive, and if it's damaged i'll be able to get it replaced
01:38 PM fragalot: ordered magnets and apparently (according to the delivery guy) they got stuck to the roof and nobody noticed
01:39 PM roycroft: you didn't have a guard?
01:39 PM * roycroft also does not have a military guard
01:39 PM CaptHindsight: no guard, no military station
01:39 PM roycroft: i don't have a military station either
01:40 PM roycroft: i'm not into guns, and things military tend to have a lot of those
01:40 PM fragalot: CaptHindsight: did you have a dog? :D
01:41 PM CaptHindsight: fragalot: not even a dog, the supervisor was helpful and gave me his cell number and the GPS location of the driver nearby
01:41 PM CaptHindsight: met her on the corner a retrieved my parcel
01:41 PM roycroft: they got stuck to the roof for a year and nobody noticed?
01:41 PM roycroft: that seems unlikely
01:41 PM CaptHindsight: a/and
01:42 PM fragalot: roycroft: that is what they said...
01:42 PM roycroft: in a year, the driver would have entered and exited the vehicle thousands of times
01:42 PM roycroft: probably tens of thousands of times
01:42 PM roycroft: and not once glanced up at the ceiling, even accidentally?
01:43 PM fragalot: you're assuming they get the time to do so
01:43 PM SpeedEvil: could have been inside a parcel facility
01:43 PM fragalot: could be the sorting machine, who knows
01:44 PM fragalot: didn't ask details, just laughed and accepted the package
01:44 PM roycroft: it could be someone at the depot was using it to hold their girly calendar up on the wall for a year
01:44 PM fragalot: lol
01:44 PM roycroft: and when the calendar ran out they tossed it in the pile to deliver
01:45 PM CaptHindsight: sounds plausible
01:47 PM CaptHindsight: somebody sent me a subscription to Maxim Magazine or similar a few years ago, I think only half of them ever arrived
01:47 PM roycroft: my belated parcel contains, or contained, a bunch of schaller bins
01:48 PM CaptHindsight: and the ones that did looked well read
01:48 PM roycroft: so if it did spontaneously rupture en route (ups would *never* have mishandled it) there will be a lot of little bins to scoop up
01:48 PM CaptHindsight: roycroft: you're just having good luck with your bins
01:48 PM roycroft: i hope i like them when finally they arrive
01:49 PM roycroft: because all other solutions cost way way more
01:50 PM roycroft: i was going to make them out of wood but that would be really bulky
01:50 PM roycroft: and would actually cost more than buying the plastic bins from schaller
01:50 PM roycroft: not to mention how tedious and time-consuming it would be to make thousands of little wooden bins
01:51 PM CaptHindsight: I decided on the formed paper rectangular containers
01:51 PM gloops: https://www.pamono.co.uk/victorian-apothecary-cabinet/?utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google&utm_campaign=PLA_UK_1488754778_58655250398&utm_content=284713108020_c_1o1&utm_term=pla-294682000766___BXL-257164&gclid=CjwKCAjwpeXeBRA6EiwAyoJPKo_Tb5NXheCwSseJBaAYfTTFyZ0EJnjFk_1v7K1dNTMuZDS07xsojRoC46EQAvD_BwE
01:51 PM roycroft: i'd like something a bit more durable than paper
01:51 PM gloops: that would look better roycroft
01:51 PM CaptHindsight: lowest cost and highest density storage
01:51 PM roycroft: i need to be able to pull the out and tote them around
01:52 PM roycroft: this is for the shop
01:52 PM roycroft: high density is critical
01:52 PM roycroft: an apothecary cabinet would not do
01:53 PM gloops: look good when customers come round though, old traditional style shop
01:54 PM roycroft: when i'm attracting the class of customers who would appreciate that i'll be able to afford a larger shop
01:57 PM gloops: at the boatyard near here they used to have a little brick building where customers went, all old hand tools on the wall, old cabinets etc, little stove - really nice, most of the work was done on modern machines round the back
01:57 PM CaptHindsight: I just have a front counter with a picture of a magic tree..
01:58 PM CaptHindsight: i tell customers that we just leave their parts by the tree in the forest and the elves handle the rest
01:59 PM gloops: well, you can only appeal to some of the potential market at once
01:59 PM CaptHindsight: and if there is any delay we blame it on haunted parts
02:04 PM gloops: 34% of British people believe in ghosts – and 9% have communicated with the dead
02:05 PM gloops: probably more likely to believe a ghost excuse than the usual 'van broke down'
02:06 PM CaptHindsight: I haven't noticed as much Halloween things this year as others
02:06 PM CaptHindsight: maybe since it's a Wednesday
02:09 PM Tom_itx: no room for it, it's packed out with christmas already
02:09 PM gloops: quiet round here too, all the kids must have grown up and nobody had any more in the meantime
02:11 PM roycroft: i think you brits are confusing your mps with ghosts
02:11 PM roycroft: which is understandable
02:11 PM gloops: ive washed my hands of the entire thing
02:12 PM * roycroft thinks halloween is the most wretched "holiday" of the year
02:13 PM roycroft: little more than a plot by the american dental association to increase business
02:14 PM Tom_itx: halmark invented valentines's day
02:14 PM roycroft: and an excuse for college students to get drunk and riot
02:14 PM gloops: theyve all been commercialised
02:14 PM roycroft: i don't know how much of a problem that is elsewhere
02:14 PM roycroft: but we have a long, sad history of drunken riots on halloween
02:15 PM roycroft: that has in recent years included overturning several police cars, and even the burning of a police car
02:15 PM roycroft: massive amounts of property damage in the university district
02:15 PM CaptHindsight: we call that Wednesday in Chicago :)
02:16 PM roycroft: perhaps not surprising, since animal house was filmed at our university
02:16 PM CaptHindsight: pretty quiet around here except for a few pockets on the south and west sides that make national news
02:18 PM gloops: i just make a point of mumbling to myself whenever im at the front of the house, they dont bother with me
02:20 PM roycroft: fortunately i live on a dead-end street mostly inhabited by empty-nesters
02:20 PM roycroft: the parents of the few young children who live on my block know to go elsewhere for the trick or treating
02:21 PM roycroft: so not much goes on at halloween on my block
02:43 PM Deejay: gn8
03:00 PM nallar is now known as Ross
04:00 PM XXCoder: Guy in black cloak, holding harvest tool and bony mask says "are you on way to a halloween party too?" other guy in black cloak says "Um, actually neither of us are."
04:01 PM XXCoder: Second guy is clearly Death and not some guy in same costume.
04:26 PM infornography: soon
06:03 PM roycroft: well, the schaller bins are somewhat disappointing
06:03 PM roycroft: they are not at all consistent in size
06:03 PM roycroft: which is going to make my storage drawers rather untidy, should i decide to use them
06:25 PM SpeedEvil: You mean they are different models, or they have crappy tollerance?
06:41 PM roycroft: both, actually
06:41 PM roycroft: but mostly the latter
06:41 PM roycroft: the height inconsistency is the most annoying thing
06:41 PM roycroft: and they are all supposed to be the exact same height - 1.75"
06:41 PM roycroft: the heights vary by at least a couple mm
06:42 PM roycroft: as far as depth, there are some that are nominally 1.875" deep, and some that are nominally 1.95" deep
06:42 PM roycroft: but again, they vary by a mm or two
06:42 PM roycroft: i ordered only a handful of the 1.95" deep ones, to see if i could put up with the difference
06:43 PM roycroft: the vast majority of bins that i would use are nominally 1.875" deep
06:43 PM roycroft: and by "deep" i mean y axis length
06:43 PM roycroft: and by "height" z axis length, of course
06:45 PM roycroft: they are otherwise very nice bins
06:45 PM roycroft: i just don't know if i want to deal with the sloppiness
06:47 PM roycroft: if i went with sortimo or tanos bins, and the height was supposed to be 60mm, i'm sure that every one of them would be 60.0mm high
06:47 PM roycroft: but sortimo and tanos cost 3-4x as much as schaller
06:48 PM roycroft: and i would have to order them from .eu, with shipping being about the same as the price of the bins, so 6-8x as much at the end of the day
06:50 PM SpeedEvil: roycroft: sander thicknesser
06:50 PM SpeedEvil: or whatever they're called
06:50 PM Rab: roycroft, any guess what they're made out of?
06:54 PM roycroft: abs, i would guess
06:54 PM roycroft: speedevil: i would be purchasing ~2000 or so of them
06:54 PM roycroft: rather tedious to dial them all in like that
06:54 PM SpeedEvil: roycroft: yes, it wasn't a very serious suggestion, though it would be fast if it diddn't shatter them
06:55 PM roycroft: it almost makes me consider making them out of wood, which was my first idea
06:55 PM roycroft: it would cost a bit more
06:55 PM roycroft: and it would take for fripping ever
06:56 PM roycroft: but they would all be consistent in size
06:57 PM roycroft: the main reason i decided to look at plastic bins is that the plastic ones have walls that are 1mm or so thick, while realistically i would need to make the walls 6mm thick if i used wood
06:57 PM roycroft: and that would waste a lot of space
06:57 PM roycroft: and the schaller bins cost less than the cost of the wood
06:58 PM roycroft: not to mention the glue, cutter wear, abrasives, finish, and the enormous amount of time required to make them out of wood
06:59 PM roycroft: i'll still make a prototype drawer and populate it with the schaller bins before i decide what i'm going to do
07:01 PM jdh: buy 100 3d printers, print the bins
07:09 PM roycroft: then they would look like ugly 3d-printed bins
07:11 PM roycroft: but potentially very consistent, ugly 3d-printed bins
07:16 PM CaptHindsight: make a mold, cast with resin in minutes
07:20 PM roycroft: lather, rinse, repeat 3000x
07:20 PM CaptHindsight: 20Kg polyester resin ~$11/Kg
07:20 PM CaptHindsight: make the mold 16 up
07:20 PM roycroft: here's the deal
07:21 PM CaptHindsight: 3000 / 16 = 188 times :)
07:21 PM roycroft: my goal is not to learn how to make hardware storage bins
07:21 PM roycroft: my goal is to organize my hardware in bins
07:22 PM jdh: you probably wouldn't care for the 'machine them out of billet' idea either then.
07:22 PM roycroft: no, probably not
07:23 PM roycroft: nor making them out of carbon fiber and resin
07:23 PM CaptHindsight: sand pattern at the beach, pour aluminum
07:23 PM roycroft: nor forging them
07:23 PM Rab: Waterjet stainless sheet, brake and spot-weld!
07:24 PM jdh: draw them
07:24 PM CaptHindsight: nah 1.75" steel strip notched every 2 inches
07:24 PM andypugh: I tried printing some lathe soft-jaws last night. Worked perfectly, apart from me getting the hole size wrong, the T-slot width wrong and the serration depth wrong in two different ways.
07:24 PM CaptHindsight: cut and assemble into arrays
07:25 PM andypugh: I was about to just modify subtractively until big isue 3
07:26 PM CaptHindsight: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41Gg3YgTWtL._SX425_.jpg
07:26 PM CaptHindsight: oh much better pic https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1HzLOQpXXXXbPXVXXq6xXFXXXq/6Pcs-set-Adjustable-Wardrobe-Drawer-Divider-Storage-Clapboard-For-Ties-Socks-Bra-Underwear-Organizer-Cabinet-Storage.jpg_640x640q90.jpg
07:27 PM CaptHindsight: https://www.colonialscientific.com/CS/images/VWR/10923019.jpg
07:28 PM roycroft: i need individual bins
07:29 PM CaptHindsight: nahh probably something wrong wit those as well
07:29 PM roycroft: typically when i'm working on a project i'll go grab the drawers holding the fasteners i'll need and set them on a bench near where i'm working
07:30 PM roycroft: i don't run back to the storage cabinets every time i need a fastener
07:30 PM andypugh: It’s hard to make parts from the same batch and the same tooling vary.
07:30 PM roycroft: yet they do
07:30 PM roycroft: primarily in height
07:30 PM roycroft: and it's obvious that they're sheared off after being ejected from the mold
07:31 PM roycroft: so i'm assuming there's a process flaw in that part of the production line
07:31 PM gloops: youll only get variation if you try not to
07:31 PM andypugh: 3DP lathe jaws: https://photos.app.goo.gl/xd4tUUmjFkr7mgc66
07:31 PM roycroft: germans can make bins that are consistent in all dimensions
07:32 PM roycroft: why can't new englanders?
07:32 PM gloops: new englanders have lives maybe?
07:32 PM roycroft: lives that are paid for by their performing work
07:33 PM roycroft: honestly, these things look more like they were made in china (20 years ago) than in massachusettes
07:33 PM roycroft: but they do not have the sweet smell of china
07:33 PM roycroft: so i don't have to worry about offgassing them for a month before i can bring them into the shop
07:34 PM Rab: roycroft, the chinese contract manufacturer has some child laborer standing there with a box cutter, and they're doing their level best.
07:34 PM roycroft: box cutter?
07:34 PM roycroft: those things cost money
07:34 PM roycroft: i thought they used broken pieces of glass
07:34 PM Rab: Teeth and fingernails
07:35 PM gloops: they still trim rubber parts with scissors here so far as i know, few people at a bench trimming grommets and o rings, thousands and thousands a day
07:37 PM roycroft: peasant women in spain still pick crocus threads by hand
07:37 PM roycroft: they get 30mg or so per flower
07:38 PM gloops: no machine for that...yet
07:38 PM roycroft: some stuff is hard to automate
07:39 PM andypugh: 30mg of safron, though, is valuable
07:40 PM roycroft: and delicious!
07:40 PM roycroft: one just cannot make paella properly without it
07:40 PM MarcelineVQ: and contains about 2mg of safron
07:41 PM roycroft: it just doesn't taste right
07:42 PM andypugh: $1000 / kg. So 30mg is ¢2
07:42 PM andypugh: Err. ¢3
07:42 PM roycroft: plus vat
07:42 PM roycroft: except not here
07:43 PM gloops: About 200-500 stigmas make up a single gram of saffron, and usually there are only three per flower.
07:43 PM roycroft: we have stupid tax, er, tariffs, here instead
07:43 PM andypugh: Pick 1 30mg in 10 seconds, $10 per hour. it money, but I prefer my job.
07:44 PM gloops: i bet they hate flowers
07:44 PM andypugh: I bet the flowers hate them back :-)
07:44 PM roycroft: if $1k/kg is the retail price then the worker is going to make about 1/10 that
07:45 PM roycroft: now it's $1/hour
07:45 PM roycroft: for some very hard work
07:45 PM andypugh: But I bet they can do better than 10 seconds per flower
07:45 PM roycroft: sure
07:45 PM roycroft: now they're working even harder
07:45 PM andypugh: Sucks to be dumb :-)
07:45 PM roycroft: nobody ever got rich picking saffron
07:46 PM roycroft: or lacking in opportunity
07:46 PM andypugh: Yes. Stop being reasonable on the Internet!
07:47 PM gloops: i dunno, its that kind of work where they talk while theyre working, probably dont even notice they are working, its just a day chatting
07:47 PM MarcelineVQ: You can't talk around flowers gloops, they get jelous and shrivel up
07:48 PM MarcelineVQ: You talk to houseplants, they're quite lonely
07:48 PM gloops: i think there have been studies that show they respond positively
07:49 PM roycroft: it depends on large part on what you say to them, i should think
07:49 PM andypugh: I suspect confounding factors, like noticing that the flower you are talking to needs watering.
07:49 PM MarcelineVQ: there's a response but I haven't seen a reputable strudy that has determined what is happening, whether it's vibration from the sound, warmth, carbon dioxide from breathe, moisture from breathe
07:50 PM roycroft: well, say nice things to them
07:50 PM roycroft: after all, plants are people too!
07:51 PM andypugh: I think, that, actually, they aren’t
07:51 PM MarcelineVQ: Why not? I've seen plenty of people I'd consider vegetables
07:52 PM andypugh: I draw my Venn diagram differently.
07:52 PM andypugh: (people can do calculus)
07:58 PM MarcelineVQ: peoplePlantHypothesis : (∃ person. person ⊂ Vegetable) ≠ (∀ vegetable. vegetable ⊂ Vegetable → person)
08:09 PM andypugh: I could parse that 40 years ago…
08:09 PM andypugh: I did read ∃ as “there exists” so it hasn’t all dropped out of my head through disuse.
08:09 PM MarcelineVQ: It's mostly nonsense I​ just wanted an excuse to try my new unicode plugin
08:09 PM andypugh: :-)
08:09 PM MarcelineVQ: that there exists a person who is a Vegetable does not mean for all vegetables which are Vegetables there's some person implied
08:10 PM MarcelineVQ: or: ya can't get tomato juice by juicing greg, though it might look similar
08:10 PM andypugh: Ah, a formal definition of the straw man callacy?
08:10 PM andypugh: (fallacy)
08:11 PM MarcelineVQ: idk, it's just sillyness :>
08:11 PM _unreal_: has anyone used an PRI or asus tinker board with linuxcnc?
08:12 PM andypugh: I have read the word “tinker” and most of what I read is LinuxCNC
08:12 PM andypugh: So, maybe
08:15 PM {HD}: Any linux genius here: “settings-mouse” sensitivity doesn’t appear to be effecting my mouse. I saw something about “xinput” but cannot get it to slow down! My mouse is so fast!
08:17 PM MarcelineVQ: Does your mouse itself have a button on it that affects its resolution?
08:18 PM {HD}: MarcelineVQ: not this one but I believe it is “high dpi” or whatever it is called.
08:39 PM pcw_home: _unreal_: I have had LinuxCNC master running on a RPI for about 3 months now, very stable if a bit slow
08:39 PM andypugh: Ah. I had no idea what an RPI was :-)
08:40 PM andypugh: Sorry, I made the same typo. “PRI” puzzled me.
08:40 PM {HD}: pcw_home: are you using the gpio for pulse gen?
08:40 PM pcw_home: I guessed thats what he meant from the tinker relation
08:41 PM pcw_home: no, FPGA
08:42 PM {HD}: pcw_home: Neat. You should do a write up on that.
08:42 PM pcw_home: Its using a supported driver ( hm2_rspi )
08:43 PM pcw_home: sorry hm2_rpspi
09:26 PM _unreal_: pcw_home, I have the asus tinker board
09:26 PM _unreal_: faster cpu, 2x memory, and more features
09:26 PM _unreal_: and more IO features and multi function io ports....
09:27 PM _unreal_: I'm currently working on :/ when I get time. building a mold to build the shell
09:27 PM {HD}: _unreal_: I thought the tinker had some wack proprietary os. At least thats what I read when it first came out.
09:28 PM {HD}: I decided to go odroid when I needed more power
09:28 PM _unreal_: {HD}, ? naa
09:29 PM _unreal_: it runs android, and debian.....
09:29 PM _unreal_: and I'm sure more builds by now
09:29 PM _unreal_: it just has a lot LOT of features for the money. the NON S version does not have the onboard emmc..... and its like $50
