    Great! Now I'm going to lose sleep knowing that I'm not doing something as worthwhile as Comptrex and yourself in my spare time! :pout:

    Guess I'll continue my efforts in preventing beer from going flat after the container is opened. I'm making good progress!

    Seriously! I couldn't be more impressed with the time and effort you and Comptrex put into these endeavors. Truly a worthwhile cause! :rockon:

    So we typically work on our robot on a stand on a cart where the wheels are off the ground so we can run the wheel motors without having the robot move. Saturday, we had it with the wheels on a board on the cart so we could make some height adjustments. Someone hit the wrong button and drove the bot off the cart. Flipped upsidedown and dropped three feet onto it's extended elevator mechanism... Guess what we are completely rebuilding this week? The FINAL week before the end of build season. MAJOR setback...

    A setback, indeed. On the plus side, you have 9 days to fix it (counting today), and you get to refine the things you didn't like about it.

    That is true. We are making some adjustments... Silver lining, eh, Electroken? Nice!

    The big show .com. It's the website for a radio show, and they post a video of the day.
