Wonder what Apple will come out with this weekend that linux has been doing for years.

Tested the motors from what I got at Goodwill. They work. I did not test the rc receivers from two of them. Need to start doing research. Pulled a couple of motors from some old old cdrom. Tested them and they work. They are going into a toy for an xmas gift.

Bought an adult bike from Goodwill for 5 dollars. Have a lot of work to do in it, but looks like it will be fine. Have to adapt...

Finally have the cobol compiler working. Whoopee. If can even be used for cgi. Thought I might write a couple of business programs with it also. Had to compile from source. Love open source.

Directron has a big deal going on today. If I did not live so far away and the price of fuel so high, I would go. Need to work on the house anyway.

Found several rc cars at Goodwill for two and three dollars each. No controllers though. The tonka toy rc cars were dismembered for the power train to be used for my pc based robot. Have all the parts, it now just a matter of putting it all together.

Put a couple of basic recipes for my daughter on www.instructables.com.

Familia

Posted 04-04-2011 at 12:13 PM by peonuser

Been spending a lot of time getting family recipes recorded for my family. Quite a few of them are "how to" basics as for doing things from scratch. We will not use anything from a box unless we have to. At least I can leave the family something money can not buy.

Been still having a challenge using the joystick port to acquire data. I will figure it out yet.

Made a solder-less usb extender using telephone wall adapters.

Putting parts together...
