01:30 AM Loetmichel: mornin'. Just sat in the usual morning traffic jam, looking around me. 12 VWs, 7 BMWs (including mine), 8 Mercs (including the police right behind me), a couple renaults, one hyunday, one ford, one skoda. Germany is pretty rich it seems... #just german things.

04:46 AM SpeedEvil: I do love construction based cartoony stuff.
04:48 AM XXCoder: dammit
04:49 AM XXCoder: how do I search on ebay for rock
04:49 AM XXCoder: surface and rock is super common words
04:53 AM SpeedEvil: Specific type of rock?
04:53 AM XXCoder: found a good term'

05:04 AM syyl: "usual wear and tear"
05:04 AM syyl: haha
05:04 AM syyl: he is even funny
05:04 AM XXCoder: best to ask when it was last certified
05:04 AM XXCoder: and if it have failed
05:05 AM SpeedEvil: I like the fact that you have to question if those are bootmarks, or someones been using it as an anvil for something.
05:05 AM syyl: you get the footprints and the pigeon-poo for free on top!
05:16 AM jthornton: morning
05:17 AM Loetmichel: if you have a good enough and large enough surface grinder or straigedge and a scraper that COULD be a nice aged block of cast iron to make a surface plate from ;)
05:23 AM SpeedEvil: Loetmichel: At 50 quid, I was contemplating using it as a router base type thingy
05:23 AM SpeedEvil: as I wouldn't feel bad about drilling a few holes and pockets in it
05:24 AM p0g0: You could fill the holes later too.
05:32 AM miss0r2: Do any of you guys have experience setting up cimco dnc-max?
06:21 AM miss0r2: Sweet jesus :D My transfer rate from PC to cnc has gone from 2400 baud to 9600! Now that is something you can feel
06:23 AM XXCoder: bauds? what ois this, early 90s? ;)
06:23 AM XXCoder: btw there is people legally able to drink alchol that never had a pre-internet life
06:31 AM miss0r2: hehe well - they are the lucky ones. They have grown up their entire life knowing every little mistake you make will be photo documented and shared on the interwebs
06:31 AM miss0r2: as a result, they are, in general more carefull. Us old idiots still have not learned
06:31 AM XXCoder: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-mWK_kcZMs
06:32 AM miss0r2: "drinkable"
06:33 AM SpeedEvil: "Will not kill you" = drinkable in many peoples point of view.

07:42 AM flyback: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8vTD4KPtB4
07:43 AM Elmo40: XXCoder, communication is still measured in baud. the octoPi needs to know what baud rate my 3D printer board is in order to properly communicate. but it is way the hell up there. 25,000.
07:43 AM XXCoder: I know, was just funnying
07:43 AM flyback: heh

08:50 AM jymmmm: Um, if comms was good, wouldn't he just be able to see that remotely???
09:20 AM Loetmichel: Jymmm: i think he wanted to know if that thing is still living
09:20 AM Loetmichel: we dont use it much
09:21 AM Loetmichel: and it seems to only talp to the rental company inf copied or toner empty
09:22 AM Loetmichel: so he asked me to initiate a "check comms" on the copier, presumably to see if it still works
