Homepage: coming soon


Hello, my name is Samuel J. Betzen; As of late I have become very interested in robotics. I have always been good at computers, math and science. I am 17 and have designed a couple of robots. I have built one, for a science fair and won first place.

I bet some of you thought that I would never post again... HA! So I have a great idea that I have been working on. I think I am going to make a robot that is run on a linux system. I am wrinting the drivers now!! Whee. Linux is really fun by the way.

Well, it has been the duration of many months now; I believe it is time for another post. Just thought I would let you all know that I am starting a new robotics club in my town. It is the first one I believe that is located in Wisconsin. So anybody can email me for information on it. I welcome anyone in the area to come and enjoy the festivities!!@$!@%#%!^

So I have been in the mood to build a new bot. So I went American science and surplus and bought a few parts. With these parts and a couple of circuits I made I had a robot within a few days. This was the fastest I had ever built a bot. Of course it is pretty basic, with only one capability, which is a moving remote control for my television. I say the number and it changes the channel, the greatest thing is that it only responds to my voice. More later... Mad Scientist out!

Well everyone, the moment that I and all of you I am sure has finally arrived that is correct! I have finished my robot... It is awesome, there are pic.s of it on my website, which is currently down to to my server being GAY! On a more sad note, I will not be writing to this site for a year or so. The reasons are many and elaborate, but mostly it was because I got caught hacking... You may say "What he's only off for a year", I'd reply "Yes!" They let me off easy only because of my outstanding grades and because it was my firts offense. It may still look bad trying to get into MIT or some other place kickass like that, which I am most deffinitly trying to do but hey what can I say. So consider this a formal goodbye for now! +++ Samuel J. Betzen I will see you in a year!!! YEAH!

Huuuzzzaaahh, another science fair... This time it is a little farther away from home, lets say 300 miles! i am competing in a state wide science fair!! I am hoping that my robot will be done by then, but if not I have a backup plan. I will not describe it now, but maybe in a few weeks... whence I have all of the kinks out. Ah yes, and wish me luck, I just may need it this time; you know now that I am not only one of a few smart nerdy people, but one of a few thousand!!!+++Samuel J. Betzen
