« on: January 20, 2010, 03:09:44 PM »
Decent computer P4 3.0 ghz i think 1gig of ram.

Question is can i run skype maybe , with mill running a mach routine?  will this mess anything thing up?

also I want to run the mill remotely from office with remote desktop, can i get away with that?

thanks..

rich05,

You should have the computer dedicated to running the machine.
Not to do so is just asking for trouble. And that trouble will come when you least expect it.

The only way to know for sure is to try it. But even if it appears to work, don't be surprised if sometime down the road that parts and tools get ruined, due to it, even though it appears to work fine when testing.
