Spreadsheet with links is ok but what happens if the linked content is removed?

Maybe this could be the impetus for an attempt at rationalising Mach documentation. Currently we have stuff all over the place:

Mach videos - a link under the support item above
Mach documentation - a link under the support item above
Mach Wiki - a link under the support item above
Members docs - a sub forum here
Downloads/tutorials and downloads/documents - two sub forums here
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mach1mach2cnc/files/ a kind of allsorts archive

and probably loads of others

How about ONE place for all - maybe under the Wiki

Just my two penneth

Hood I think a spreadsheet with links as suggested, I think by Rich, is a good idea too. If we make a copy of the info in the spreadsheet and attribute it with a URL, then if the website disappears it wont matter. The software for viewing and editing spreadsheets is available for free, if you use "open office" or LibreOffice,  among others. I will create the spreadsheet using LibreOffice - feel free to try the dictionary spreadsheet out with different types of spreadsheet programs.
Cheers

what is a charge pump?

Visa power shopper on Boxing day sales!!

Or more correctly a means of Mach indicating when booting, shutting down or PC failure, can be used for servo or E-stop shut down.
Equivalent to the common Watch-Dog Timer used in processor based control systems.

Probably best to compile the dictionary and have one group to control the PDF. That has worked well in the past.

PDFs print very well as a hardcopy manual.


BEST to NOT use the charge pump as an estop as MACH3 can lock up tight and the change pump still runs fine. The original purpose of the CP was to prevent the tickling of the LPT ports during bootup.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

I realize that was the original intent, but personally I want to shut everything down if something has happened to the PC or the program, I look at it as the next best thing to a watch dog if AND'ed  in the E-stop string.

You guys are killing me.  I opened every one of those files hoping to find a real dictionary.  Not. 

Since the days of this thread, Google docs if fee to all... or am I about to discover something in the next thread I search for this Holy Grail?
