Ugh. I'm really tired of these cold rainy days. I mean I really hate to complain but my joints are aching and I'm scared to to take much more Ibuprofen! I don't want to get old.

I took the day off today. So here it is nearly lunch time and I've just gotten "done" with work. I love being "off" and still working. Isn't it great. (Sarcasm intended.)

HexCrawler - the first video

Nothing like posting things out of sequence. =) Here is the first little snippet from before the long vid I posted yesterday.

I've got a couple of 7.2v RC batteries in Parallel for capacity - sure helps with all the experimentation not having the battery give up in the middle of a test!
