Hi Hood,

Thanks for the help but I wanted to learn to use as much Mach3 on the PC in the house but this is getting silly. I am  not going to mess with my main computer.

I have just ordered more memory for the XP machine in the garage and will install Ubuntu and try EMC2, I have been a programmer since 1976 and I am surprised at this software, and IMHO it really is not ready for the real world. It is still too human set-up intensive. Probably trying to do too many things for too many situations and not getting many of them right.

Anyway, thank you for putting in so much effort to help.

Dave

Dave,
I have seen a driver test just like the one you posted. In fact it looks very similar the one my computer at work will
generate. The computer at work has every kind of anti-virus and spyware not to mention the corporate junk software on it you can imagine. As a programmer setup shoud be a piece of cake for you. By the way, don't play with your mouse
when doing the driver test as it will create all kinds of spikes.
When the driver test is running it will show if there are interuptions accuring.
Take a breath, new software, getting the machine running, getting parameters for your specific needs. All can get rather confusing quickly.
As far as not being ready for the real world, you should try some of the others!

Hey Dave, Really hate to see you go. I'm no programmer OR electrician, but I am managing to pick it up in bits and pieces as I go along. Maybe that's why I am so impressed with it.
Here's an idea....Spend a few hours with LazyCam. Then Mach will more closely resemble a kindergarten coloring book !
Regards,
RC :)

Oh..... and a word of warning.    Watch out for RICH's spider. :o He shouldn't bother you...he's been well fed lately. ::)

The humbled spider is improving web making technique's. He is hungry, determined, and more knowlegable on entrapment.  So beware, there just may be one hanging around your lathe!
