04:40 AM Tom_L: morning
06:29 AM JT-Cave: morning
06:29 AM t4nk_freenode: 'lo
06:32 AM JT-Cave: 41°F
06:33 AM JT-Cave: hmm high of 58°F today, I might get the big shop up to >68°F and pull the truck in and install the Bedrugs
06:35 AM t4nk_freenode: mmmm 41 here too
07:24 AM t4nk_freenode: inside the house it's still pretty warm though
08:53 AM unterhausen: penn state is selling a 24 channel mixing board, good thing I got over my mixer obsession years ago
09:03 AM roycroft: a few years ago i found a 48 input 4 channel analog mixing board leaning up against my car
09:03 AM roycroft: i tested it and it worked perfectly
09:03 AM roycroft: then i donated it to st vincent de paul
09:56 AM perry_j1987: lol
11:17 AM unterhausen: deer hunting season goes on forever, and yet we're still overrun with them. Then they start up again for antlerless flintlock, whatever that is
11:19 AM unterhausen: I guess you can get an extra deer if you use a flintlock, because they have a regular firearms season then too
11:47 AM pcw--home: HY-IGH: I would post your question in the EtherCAT section of the LinuxCNC forum
11:49 AM unterhausen: I successfully talked the client out of me making him some washers.
01:27 PM XXCoder: HY-IGH: please dont pm random people asking if know solution. ask in here
02:21 PM roycroft: we've had over 100 earthquakes off the coast of oregon in the last 48 hours, 9 of which were between magnitude 5 and magnitude 5.8
02:21 PM roycroft: and they're not letting up yet
02:21 PM roycroft: they are shallow - less than 10km deep
02:21 PM roycroft: but they're not close to the cascadia subduction zone
02:22 PM roycroft: so no tsunamis are expected, nor are they necessarily a sign of a bigger quake that will have effects on land
02:22 PM roycroft: but we average three magnitude 5 or greater quakes/year off our coast
02:22 PM roycroft: so we got three year's worth in two days
02:23 PM roycroft: so far
02:29 PM XXCoder: geez
03:04 PM * roycroft waves goodbye to the matrix
03:06 PM XXCoder: wonder wehen neo would come in
03:17 PM Tom_L: 68F
03:18 PM XXCoder: nice. its 40f here heh
03:19 PM aaroncnc: its a warm 32f here
03:19 PM Tom_L: enjoy
03:21 PM aaroncnc: oh boy saturday is going to be fun "Southwest winds around 30 mph with gusts of 50 to 60 mph possible."
03:21 PM aaroncnc: well i didnt want electricity anyways.
03:31 PM Tom_L: that's just a breeze around here
03:32 PM aaroncnc: its not bad for some but our infrastructure is not built to handle it. soo many downed trees will take the lines with them. and then it will take them a week to restore power...
03:35 PM aaroncnc: going to go out and fill all my cans up. having about 32 gallons of gas should keep my family going. and if by some miracle i dont lose power i will just use it in my cars.
03:36 PM aaroncnc: I need to get my nat gas generator back up and running.
03:41 PM JT-Shop: almost done cleaning out the garage... only two buildings left to go
03:42 PM JT-Shop: 56°F at the moment
03:52 PM JT-Shop: crap I forgot about the Beer Cave it needs deshamblizing
03:53 PM roycroft: what's going on?
03:54 PM roycroft: are you going to be giving your new girlfriend a tour of the office?
03:56 PM JT-Shop: me? making room for the Ridgeline in the garage and trying to clean up all my messes
03:57 PM XXCoder: jt just got hit with cleanup chain
03:57 PM XXCoder: he gonna go all way to end of chain
03:58 PM JT-Shop: making room for the Ridgeline created 3 disaster areas LOL
04:09 PM roycroft: i just got a random phone call
04:10 PM roycroft: "hello, i'm sara from the department of visa and mastercard. how are you?"
04:11 PM roycroft: "i'm fine, but i'm not sure you are. you seem to have contracted scammer disease - you should probably have that looked at"
04:11 PM roycroft: as usual, i'm not so much annoyed by the scam attempt as insulted by how unclever it was
04:11 PM JT-Shop: lol
04:12 PM XXCoder: :)
04:15 PM Tom_L: when JT-Shop gets done cleaning he'll think somebody broke in and ransacked the place
04:18 PM JT-Shop: a garden gnome maybe
04:19 PM Tom_L: i should pull my lathe out and clean under/behind it
04:20 PM Tom_L: that's beein in the same spot for a good 30 yrs
04:24 PM JT-Shop: it's amazing all the crap you find when you do a major clean up
04:25 PM JT-Shop: some of it you say "I remember that" and some you just say "hmm"
04:27 PM Tom_L: i know there's at least one S10 starter under it and i haven't had that for several years now
04:28 PM aaroncnc: my solution has just been to build another shed to put things in. this spring will mark shed number 3...
04:28 PM XXCoder: JT-Shop: free tools!
04:32 PM JT-Shop: found a box with 3 briggs & stratton starters... and I bought one for the splitter
04:54 PM Tom_L: it's our duty as mericans to collect as much crap as possible so our kids can fight over it when we're gone
04:54 PM XXCoder: Tom_L: lol
04:55 PM Tom_L: looks like matrix is taking another hike
04:55 PM XXCoder: really need to call neo in to fix it
04:56 PM Tom_L: CaptHindsight[m] must have the secret decoder ring
04:57 PM XXCoder: neo from matrix movie heh
05:00 PM CaptHindsight[m]: matrix bridges to IRC have been flaky today
05:06 PM roycroft: perhaps the supply of blue pills vs red pills is out of balance
05:06 PM _unreal_: ?
05:07 PM XXCoder: probably yes
05:07 PM XXCoder: or someone took both at once
05:07 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/?extent=7.79808,-136.40625&extent=60.02095,-53.61328
05:08 PM roycroft: and the flux capacitor got caught in a wormhole, causing a time warp that makes janet turn into a smurf
05:09 PM roycroft: yes, we be jiggly off our western shore, for sure
05:11 PM roycroft: i haven't felt any of them
05:11 PM * JT-Shop has no idea where a cutler-hammer explosion proof limit switch came from
05:11 PM roycroft: but we rarely feel earthquakes that far offshore, even the shallow ones
05:12 PM roycroft: i bet i could blow it up if i tried
05:15 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Tom_L: nickserve has also been twitchy, have had to identify a few times today
05:16 PM * JT-Shop knows he could blow it up...
05:21 PM _unreal_: JESUS finally got the damn mosquito
05:22 PM roguish[m]: JESUS would leave it alone.................it a being......
05:22 PM _unreal_: try living in the tropics
05:23 PM * roycroft lives where he lives very intentionally
05:25 PM roycroft: and avoiding the wily mosquiteaux is one of the reasons
05:26 PM Tom_L: but while he's chasing a mosquito around he sticks his foot in an aligator's mouth
05:32 PM JT-Shop: don't forget the black panthers...
05:32 PM JT-Shop: I think JESUS is dead
05:32 PM _unreal_: JT-Shop, naa, just perm VA-CAY
05:32 PM XXCoder: I had Jesus as schoolmate and coworker.
05:33 PM XXCoder: coworker Jesus didnt last long, he was fired after 2 weeks.
05:33 PM JT-Shop: Jesus flew in a B29 over Korea...
05:37 PM JT-Shop: chickens are all tucked in...
05:37 PM * JT-Shop calls it a day
06:49 PM jesseg_ is now known as jesseg
06:50 PM Centurion_Dan1 is now known as Centurion_Dan

07:42 PM HY-IGH: Wechat 15527523006
07:44 PM Tom_L: no i'm not familiar with ethercat
07:45 PM Tom_L: take pcw--home's advise and ask on the forum
07:46 PM HY-IGH: Send a link
07:47 PM Tom_L: https://forum.linuxcnc.org/ethercat
07:47 PM Tom_L: you may have to join first
07:47 PM Tom_L: unless you have already
07:48 PM Tom_L: (spam prevention)
08:45 PM roycroft: of all the horrible things that have happened in the world in the past few years, i'm declaring the emergence and scourge of "river epoxy" tables the worst
08:46 PM Tom_L: huh?
08:47 PM roycroft: people building tables out of slabs of hardwood that has voids/cracks in it and filling the voids with tinted epoxy to look like a river, allegedly
08:47 PM roycroft: or sometimes not even bothering to find slabs that have natural craks
08:47 PM roycroft: cracks
08:47 PM roycroft: they just take pieces of wood and pile them up in a form, and pour epoxy around them
08:48 PM roycroft: and i don't blame the people that are making them - they sell them for huge amounts of money
08:48 PM roycroft: it's the people with no taste who demand them
08:49 PM roycroft: i could probably blame whoever started this horrible fad
08:49 PM roycroft: but i have no idea who that is, and don't care enough to find out
08:49 PM roycroft: i just hope it ends soon
08:51 PM Tom_L: ahh
08:51 PM Tom_L: there was a guy here making vape devices from similar wood some time back
08:52 PM Tom_L: oh, maybe that was zeeshan... i forget now it's been a long time
08:53 PM roycroft: sorry, i was just asked if i could make one
08:54 PM roycroft: and i had to bite my tongue so hard it was almost bleeding
08:54 PM roycroft: and then politely responded that i do not have the equipment to produce such a thing in my shop
08:54 PM roycroft: i think "river epoxy" tables are hideous
08:55 PM roycroft: but if you go to the youtube and enter "river epoxy table" you'll find a huge number of videos, some with millions of views
08:56 PM roycroft: and i'm not at all averse to mixing other media with wood - it's not a "wood purity" thing with me
08:56 PM roycroft: i just think that they look awful
08:59 PM roycroft: i could make good money making those things too
08:59 PM roycroft: but eew
09:00 PM Tom_L: heh
09:01 PM Tom_L: vape device is a bit different than a table but i get your point
09:01 PM roycroft: i haven't costed it out formally, but to me it looks like a $1k slab + $200 in epoxy + $500 in hardware + 20 hours of work and it sells for $10k-$15k
09:01 PM roycroft: that's a decent margin
09:02 PM Tom_L: now the logs that are found in rivers etc are a different story imo
09:02 PM Tom_L: they also bring big money
09:03 PM roycroft: oh yes
09:03 PM roycroft: and they are well worth it
09:03 PM roycroft: bog timber is something i'd like to work with at some point
09:04 PM Tom_L: probably plenty to be found in your area too
09:07 PM roycroft: actually not a lot that i know of
09:07 PM roycroft: most of the bog timber in this country is found in the deep south
09:07 PM roycroft: what i'd really like is to get some bog oak or bog yew from the uk
09:07 PM roycroft: some of that has been in peat bogs for over 1000 years
09:07 PM Tom_L: huh
09:08 PM roycroft: and it's just spectacular stuff when it's harvested and cut up
09:08 PM roycroft: but it's extremely rare, and almost impossible to get out of the uk other than as finished products
09:25 PM roycroft: i could make a lot of money making vape pipes/bongs/etc. as well
09:25 PM roycroft: and i have nothing inherently against that stuff, as long as i don't have to smell the smoke
09:26 PM roycroft: but it's not the image i want to convey
09:29 PM Tom_L: i think he was making them for somebody
09:29 PM Tom_L: surprised i even remembered that it's been so long
09:33 PM roycroft: if i were hurting for money i'd consider make something like that, but i'd want it to be branded by someone else
09:34 PM roycroft: with again, no judgement on my part, but awareness that there may be judgement by others
10:01 PM enleth: roycroft: that got me wondering what kind of margin could you reasonably expect to get out of bog timber knobs, feet and enclosures for audiophile equipment
10:02 PM enleth: does the rich idiot tax add up or multiply here?
10:22 PM roycroft: i could probably do very well, enleth
10:23 PM roycroft: and making high end enclosures for audiophile equipment is already in my plans
10:23 PM roycroft: i've actually designed some enclosures for mcintosh gear
10:24 PM roycroft: i happen to own a mcintosh hifi, so that seemed like a good starting point
10:24 PM roycroft: since i can product test on myself
10:48 PM roycroft: i would first of all need to source the bogwood
