Hey! I recently updated my site, and still manage to update it very frequently. If anyone has robots that they want to share, please join my Bravenet SiteRing, and dont forget to add your link to my site (these are found at the bottom of the "Links" page on my site). The link to my site is above.

Gave up on my writer idea. I did manage to take a few pictures tho. They can be found at http://www.geo cities.com/simonthehappy Then u click the link labled "writer" on the left side. Also, i added a chatroom to my site. It is a blue recangle on the main screen (right side). Feel free to enter and exit it whenever you wish. Maybe you will even be there when i am there. Happy building and programming everyone!

I recently found out about http://www.hvwtech.com. It has great microcontrollers (such as the OOPIC and Basic Stamp), and mny other accessories. I hope to get the OOPIC II, if anyone has used it, please let me know if it's any good (you can e-mail me at sleepaholic88@hotmail.com or talk to me through AIM, my SN is sleepaholic88). Thanks.

A foolproof method for sculpting an elephant: first, get a huge block of marble, then you chip away everything that doesn't look like an elephant.
Whoever coined the phrase "Quiet as a mouse" has never stepped on one.
Hehe, just found these rather amusing.
