12:00 AM CaptHindsight: midnight here so maybe just one more hour of sanding
12:07 AM roycroft: *sigh*
12:07 AM roycroft: trump is claiming victory and tweeting that the democrats are trying to "steal" the election by counting all the ballots
12:07 AM roycroft: he said he wasn't going to do that
12:07 AM roycroft: why did i even hope he would keep his word?
12:37 AM unterhaus_: CaptHindsight, what are you sanding?
12:38 AM unterhaus_: I just painted the back of my lathe, looks a lot better
12:38 AM unterhaus_: there may be some cruft under that paint, hopefully it's soluble in paint thinner
12:39 AM unterhaus_: now I need to figure out where that timing belt got off to for the gearbox
12:45 AM CaptHindsight: unterhaus_: car body parts before prime
12:46 AM unterhaus_: ah. I wish I felt comfortable painting cars
12:47 AM unterhaus_: I have a number of bike frames that need paint
12:47 AM CaptHindsight: last week of 60-70F weather here
12:47 AM CaptHindsight: then it gets more complicated even though there is heat
12:48 AM CaptHindsight: epoxy primer, glues just about everything back together
12:50 AM CaptHindsight: just avoid the isocyanate urethane's unless you have breathing gear
01:06 AM Deejay: moin
01:32 AM unterhaus: unfortunately, they haven't replaced isocyanates.
01:32 AM Loetmichel: mornin'
01:32 AM Loetmichel: *GAAAH* just arrived at the company with a fresh coffee... 3dprinter done, so i started to clean the print bed with Isopropyl alcohol... and promptly toppled the Alcohol bottle nest to my coffee... Now "irish coffee" ;)
01:32 AM unterhaus: ouch
04:18 AM jymmmm: morning
04:18 AM jymmmm: Loetmichel: just light a match, butn off the alcohol, they you have your coffee back, and heated back up too
05:06 AM JT-Cave: morning
05:08 AM XXCoder: hey

05:19 AM XXCoder: allo
05:20 AM jymmmm: Had a couple shots of brandy and eggnog, STILL woke up at 2am wide awake, eeeesh
05:26 AM * jymmmm blames XXCoder
05:26 AM XXCoder: sorry man
05:27 AM XXCoder: i mean, i can't help being so sexy and appealing to you
05:42 AM JT-Cave: yum pickled eggs are almost done and so easy to make
05:45 AM Tom_L: morning
05:45 AM XXCoder: i had small pototoes and grape tomotoes in thin olkive oil coating, herbs, and garlic salt
05:45 AM XXCoder: damn yummy
05:45 AM XXCoder: and easy to make too
05:45 AM Loetmichel: jymmmm: hehe, i went to bed at 05:30 and woke up at 07:00 today... granted, i wouldnt call that "wide awake", more like "on autopilot" but by now 5 hours later its all fine... funny how that works ;)
05:46 AM JT-Cave: https://gnipsel.com/recipes/snacks/pickled-eggs.html
08:21 AM jymmmm: Loetmichel: I'm not liking my sleep patterns or lack there off.
08:22 AM Centurion-Dan2 is now known as Centurion_Dan
11:35 AM roycroft: hi, folks
11:36 AM roycroft: i was just running pncconf to see what it would do, and when i got to the mesa card configuration it showed a 5i25 with 7i76 firmeware, which is what i have
11:36 AM roycroft: is that a default or did it detect my mesa card?
11:37 AM roycroft: i'm still having issues calibrating the touchscreen, but that's going to take more work than i have time for right now, so i'm saving it until i have that time
11:45 AM * JT-Cave looked at pncconf once but it was more complicated than just starting from a base configuration and hand writing my stuff
11:46 AM roycroft: i've done neither to date
11:46 AM roycroft: i thought i'd start wiht pncconf and then do any tweaking by hand
12:09 PM Rab: https://www.vox.com/2020/11/3/21514828/oregon-drug-decriminalization-measure-110-results
12:09 PM * Rab hi-fives roycroft
12:18 PM roycroft: yeah, we passed all our ballot measures this year
12:18 PM roycroft: and that was a good one
12:18 PM roycroft: i'm absolutely not pro drug use
12:18 PM roycroft: but drug laws are not about drug use
12:18 PM roycroft: they're about voter suppression
12:18 PM roycroft: although that's not how they're applied in oregon, for the most part
12:18 PM roycroft: it's much more the case in other parts of the country
12:19 PM Rab: Drug laws certainly aren't about preventing drug use.
12:19 PM roycroft: this was a really well written ballot measure, and even has the support of law enforcement
12:19 PM XXCoder: making illegal sale of drugs also makes it far more effecient
12:19 PM roycroft: it changes posession of small amounts of drugs from a criminal offense to a civil offense with a fine of $100
12:20 PM XXCoder: *only sales of
12:20 PM roycroft: and that $100 goes into a fund for drug rehab clinics
12:20 PM roycroft: sale is still criminal, xxcoder
12:20 PM XXCoder: thats what i said yes
12:20 PM roycroft: it's posession of small amounts that is decriminalized
12:20 PM roycroft: but sale and manufacture are still criminal
12:22 PM roycroft: so a recount of wisconsin has been requested by the trump campaign
12:22 PM roycroft: not surprising
12:22 PM roycroft: and i'd expect the biden campaign to do the same if it were that close the other way
12:23 PM XXCoder: yeah
12:24 PM roycroft: we also passed the ballot measure to make psilocybin mushrooms legal for certain types of treatment
12:24 PM roycroft: and we raised the cigarette tax to make it similar to that in washington and california
12:24 PM XXCoder: nice
12:25 PM XXCoder: i did read about usinfg nose sprayers for microdosing in very precise amount
12:25 PM roycroft: again, with the additional tax revenue earmarked for anti-tobacco programs
12:25 PM roycroft: and tobacco-related health programs
12:26 PM XXCoder: jeez https://www.euronews.com/2020/11/04/slovenian-prime-minister-janez-jansa-congratulates-donald-trump-despite-no-election-result
12:26 PM roycroft: not surprising
12:27 PM roycroft: the president turned a smoothly-running, relatively low-drama election day into a shit show last night
12:28 PM roycroft: he is bound to get that kind of response from his dicatator-like buddies
12:28 PM roycroft: it was low enough drama that i was able to get my linuxcnc machine built last night while the results were coming in
12:30 PM roycroft: https://ballotpedia.org/Oregon_2020_ballot_measures
12:30 PM roycroft: the amount of money spent on each side of the ballot measures is interesting
12:42 PM roycroft: aah, i have an elo touchscreen, and debian thinks it's a wacom tablet
12:42 PM roycroft: that would account for the problems
12:42 PM roycroft: i can install an elo driver and reconfigure, and hopefully that will take care of things
12:46 PM CrookedStools: For Driver Microstepping it says set to 2 for 1/2 step, what do you set it for 1 or 1/8 or 1/16?
01:11 PM unterhaus: legalization won in a lot of states
01:12 PM unterhaus: CrookedStools, which driver?
01:13 PM Tom_L: download the manual and follow it
