got an email from findsway.com telling me someone at work has a crush on me. Once I finished laughing, I clicked the unsubscribe link.... At which point the site errored.... showing me the DB credentials. BWHAHAHA.  Morons.

Edit: proof

This #f1 is more like wacky races. Going to be an interesting season.

The slashdot.org boycott is in full swing.
I can finally read the site and comments without running into hundreds of threads of ** beta. The idiots are gone and the discussion is back.
Viva la boycott!

On a more serious note, I really can't decide if the beta is the worst thing that ever existed, or it is the vocal minority spoiling it for the rest.

I'm a dad! Can't believe it! Introducing the new member of our amazing planet, baby Violet.
Time to brainstorm some science I can do with her ;)

Hector's new neck mechanism is now in place. I am still not 100% happy with the head rotation mount as it flexes too much. No time for perfectionism, I just need to complete something!

+Paul Plowman I was a tough decision, but the size of the motor dictated the mounting to some degree

This is stuck to a table at my local hospital... I think we are all stuck in the matrix.

Computer, end program.

Nice. Really nice. It is an excellent start to the project. I am starting to import some complex thingi models I have, and there seem to be some strange issues.

* Uploading multiple STL files often fails. Sometimes it fails and then the upload is blank. Sometimes it partially fails and it is nearly impossible to see which file failed after the error screen.
* Some of the text formatting goes a bit strange.
* Opening a new tab to edit multiple models at the same time causes some odd behaviour. Saving on tab1 caused tab2's uploads to fail.

Feature request:
* One of my projects is so large (200+ parts) it requires that it is broken into multiple projects. It would be amazing to have a top level design that can encompass multiple models. A hierarchy would be great.
* It wasn't immediately apparent that the design was not published. A last step of "do you want to publish this now" would make it obvious
* Categories: Need more! Robotics or similar would cover my needs.

Great work guys

The arm moving on Hector robot.
This is moving slowly for 2 reasons
1) My PSU doesn't supply enough current to move really fast
2) I didn't put all of the screws in... don't want it flying into a wall!
