Upgrade Complete...

The upgrade is complete. This gives security fixes and a few new features. It also was major, so some user settings were lost. (Sorry) If you want US english, you likely have to go reset it.

Software Upgrade -- (10 minute warning!)

I am going to take a stab at upgrading at 35 minutes past the hour! It is 8:25 here! So in 10 minutes!

Please be patient with ups and downs... it may be 1/2 a day once I start.
Thank you everybody.

Tapatalk will be down for a few minutes--May 19th

The tapatalk plugin will be down for a few minutes, tomorrow morning, May 19th.
I will get it back online as fast as possible, but it is time for a couple upgrades to it.

Re: Edge finding for small mills and setting 0,0,0
