    Well i bought this robot kit and every thing progressed ok until the last stage
    of construction, vital parts are missing, well thats not to bad i made the missing
    parts, the next stage is programming, ouch ,it is just so vague, the first stage
    "centering the servos went ok", but then it went down hill, my £250 bot is a
    useless peace of junk :cry:

    That's strange - when I assemble something, I usually end up with extra parts. :cool: Did you ask the computer or engineering people for suggestions?

    A Tvo lets you rewind, pause, and skip 30 second ahead on TV.

    At some point you should stop trying to build a girlfriend, and maybe just try to meet one.
