Remote Development

The weather is getting colder.  I expect snow in a few weeks, so my usual development location for CNC code is going to become less pleasant.  Solution: VMware running the same development environment in my office: emacs, make, ddd.  FileZilla lets me move files back and forth painlessly, and unlike the small (1024x768 resolution) and not very sharp laptop, now I can use 1900x1200 on a big monitor.

One reader found this incomprehensible, starting at the computer geek section.


I am going to try TeamViewer and UltraVNC for remote execution.

I generally don't say anything but this post is only completely understandable up to word 12 and is completely incomprehensible after about word 25 . . .
(Sorry, but the prospect of not President Clinton has caused me to open the good bourbon. I will show more restraint.)

Consider acquiring some heated clothing. Motorcycle gear comses to mind. Electrically heated pants or chaps, along with vests or jackets with or without collars, and boot/shoe liners. Gloves also.

Windy: basically where the computer jargon starts. I will put geek warnings in the future.

Have you considered remoting into the garage machine?

Rick C: The mill is controlled by a box that attaches to a Centronics parallel port. Linux is used because there are real-time constraints so remote control not possible.
