HEY! Are you going to IROS 2012 in Portugal this October? Want to split a double room at the (currently sold-out) conference hotel with a real live robot journalist? I may have a spot for you!

You know how when you first learned about atoms you kinda thought of them as little solar systems, and then you learned that they were nothing at all like solar systems? Yeah, they're sometimes exactly like solar systems.

In celebration of surviving CES, I did absolutely nothing today besides take naps, watch Star Trek, and eat potato chips.

That.... or just walked out without a powersupply. I've probably got 5-10 supplies sitting here that could run the laptop. :)
