Whew! It's been a while since I last had a chance to post a new diary entry.

My new job demands a substantial amount of what had previously been my free time to work on robotics projects. But, that's life at a startup ;)

I haven't been able to put in much time working on the Blue Cube or Zaza in the last five months, but would very much like to get back to doing so.

I was able to spend a few hours at the Tech this weekend working on Zaza, but it appears her batteries are in need of replacement again, as the voltage never got much above 11.3V. It appears the maintenance technicians left the robot connected to the charger w/o having the the robot power on for a month or more. unfortunately the charger from RWI isn't smart enough to reduce the charge current proporionately, and managed to cook off a lot of the hydrogen in the gell cells. Oh well, there goes another $500...
