Today I am in a BIG robot building mood. I built two robots today. E-3 and Spider-bot. Yep,spider-bot is finished. And I decided to build another. E-3 uses a LED and a motor as a out put device. He can be used in a mini robot sumo contest. He has too spikes "screws" for a weapon. And it,( Yeah,its weird ) it uses a paper cup for the coverings. I will soon add both robots too the robomenu.

I am starting to work on spider-bot

Well,right now I am saving up to build a computer. Another one. I have a HP at home that is VERY slow. I also need another monitor. BADLY! This monitor looks like one of those dieing computers in those science fiction movies. Well,my dad is going to bring me some CPU's to build a robot. I am going to build a explorer. This will be my first computer programmable robots. I plan on building a eeprom emulator card and putting it in one of the PCI slots so the computer will HOPEFULLY detect the emulator. I will use it to connect it to a intrepreter chip so that the computer can execute the program without me having to continuisly buy more and more eeproms. Well,this should be a good money saver.

I think nso2002 and nso2003 are both the same person. (duh) And I think I know who they are. They are probably those sickos who goto my robot chatroom and flood. I permanantly banned them. And a message to them (if they are those spammers): Hey! this place is for people with brains!.

I just want to give this message to scienceboy2. You seem real cool. I was wondering if you wanted to come to my robot irc chat room. My nickname will be bart. Sparkjim goes there so does relic and so does jim_mcneat. I am usually around there at 3:15pm (california time). You can get there at http://chat.cjb.net/robots and hopefully I will see you there.

Well,now I am close to finishing scooter. The people that packed my kit forgot to pack the ankle brackets. I am going to buy some quick dry super glue instead. My friend over in anaheim has some. Its really good. (sorry if I sound like I like to eat super glue. But I dont)I will just super glue the holder thats going to hold the gears.

I am working on scooter. The sound controlled robot. So far I am done soldering the resisters. I soldered the potentiometer. I just need to solder the capacitors and then the transisters then do the mechanical work and work on the microphone. Right now the project is delayed due to the fact that I am at my dads house and dont got the tools or the project here.

I am thinking up a circuit for a robotic arm. I can not decide whether to make an explorer or a robotic arm. I might just make a hexapod. I am still learning about digital logic. Only because no stores around my area have microcontrollers. But my dad has a ton of things I can use for the bot. He has all the gates and everything. So soon he is going to take me to storage so we can pick up some components and a organizer. I can really use an organizer.

Well,guys. This is the final chapter. For my email address that is. Some spammer is spamming my email. With nasty ads. I am going to get another email. With hotmail. When I get it I will announce the emails.

I found out that my dad has plenty of electronic parts at his storage. I am going to use some parts to build a beam robot. My dad and I also might build a computer operated robot that will use a PLC microcontroller. He worked with them a lot. We will probably start on it after we build our computer. Since my sis is a computer hog I guess I should build a computer. I still goto read some books that teach me how to build one. Any way I found a really great site that teaches you how to build a BEAM robot. But I cant remember the url right now. My dad doesnt think its a good hobby to build robots. So I just told him I needed them for an experiment ( technically it IS a experiment do to the fact that I need to EXPERIMENT if it works ). He thinks its just a waste of money if I buy the parts. But the thing is,I dont know how I am going to get the solarcell. My mom definately wont take me since she hates radioshack. So I will tell dad if he can take me. Hopefully he will say yes. If that wont work than I will have to open a account in the bank and order it from my solarbotics catalog I should be getting real soon. Talk to you all later.
