I was trying to find in the Event Packet info about time of RoboMagellan
It only talks about Combat robots and not RoboMagellan.
The only info I have seen so far is this:
Robomagellan <[link]>$55 1 Sa 12-6
So do we need to show up for RoboMagellan at noon on Saturday?
My laptop crashed hard and I rebuilt everything from scratch. I am running Ubuntu 11.10 on an amd-64 with an old nvidia card. I installed nvidia_current, and the latest ogre (1.7.3?) I am running groovy. Rviz sometimes comes up with a grid, but mostly just a blank white screen that then kills the desktop when I exit. Another clue is rviz complains about not finding something in the GTK when It starts. It flashes the start up picture and then goes into whiteout mode.

I think if I can remove .25mm of PCB I can fix it, but I don't want to
damage the wheels. (They are 3D printed ABS with .5mm walls for the pully).
Hacker Dojo. The meeting will start at 7:00 pm. SIG is an informal
meeting where we just meet and mingle to show off and talk robots. You

The young lady running the show, Aubrey Shick, has a good business plan recognizing the therapeutic benefits of robots and moreover robot-building. One of the goals is to make the robot simple enough so it can be assembled by children with their parents... another is to host workshops so Romibos can be assembled and donated to special needs facilities. Open-source plans and files are available on-line; keep your eyes open for a "KickStarter". She's located in Pittsburgh but I invited her to present at one of our meetings when she's in town as presentations are everyone's job.
I need to buy a scope and was wondering how well

Party will take place at the Volkswagen Automotive Innovation Lab @
Stanford on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, from 1 to 6 pm. As in previous
years, HBRC will occupy several tables at the event. We need you and your
robots to help fill the tables. All robots are welcome. The event is
also known as the Kobuki? I'm particularly interested in how well it
autodocks and if anyone has used it with ROS SLAM. My old TurtleBot 1
is showing its age so I'm wondering if it's worth replacing with the new
find much info online about adding a USB charging port to a small robot.
The robot runs on 4xAAA batteries and the primary goal is to enable my
young son to plug it into the USB port in the wall to charge overnight,
avoiding the need for adapters in electrical outlets.
I need assistance in moving my website from the old web server to Go Daddy.
My web designer is disabled and can no longer work on his computer. It
