computer Driver setup

  • I could use some clarification on the human interface to this machine: Is the beaglebone meant to be the motor controller and human interface, or just the motor controller? --Hef (talk) 08:47, 6 November 2014 (CST)
  • We're moving to x86 machine. BBB + machinekit isn't ready for this application. dean


I learned the hard way that a 20% buffer is wiser than a 10% buffer, even for big ticket items --Hef (talk) 08:18, 6 November 2014 (CST)

I'll fix that.

Execution of Purchase

  • Currently, you have the BOD as the authorized spender. From previous conversations, it sounds like you wanted to buy this at auction. That should bake Dean the authorized spender. I'd also like a little more detail in the background section if that is still the case. It would make sense to talk to one of the Treasury people about execution, as a reimbursement probably doesn't make sense here. --Hef (talk) 08:30, 6 November 2014 (CST)
  • Not at auction. The seller of the candidate machine is the same company that we bought the DoAll from. A PS1 check to them would be fine. dean
  • I've pulled the part about "9 months rent". The space already doesn't eat past the 8 month buffer (about $30k) unless it's for legal or safety. --Hef (talk) 08:30, 6 November 2014 (CST)
