Wow, it's been awhile since the last update! I just wanted to say that after Bruce went over my entry to his learning robot contest, we came up with a few new ideas to try and a few corrections for the web page. As far as the corrections go, the schematic for the agent picker was drawn wrong; the timer circuit on the right hand side should look like the ones on the left. Currently, the input and output of the inverter are shorted together. I'll redraw the diagram soon. Also, there are some minor differences between the flowchart and the actual code. I'll be updating the learning robots page to reflect these things soon.

Pretty much finished up the learning bot page for Bruce's contest. It now contains a whole bunch of info, pictures, and code segments from my creation.

Added a video of my learning robot in action. I've now added touch sensors to the bot, too.

Added a bit of info to the learning bots page on some recent experiments, also a pic of the accelerometer.

Wow, lots of stuff added to the learning robots page! I recently got a shipment from Analog Devices containing a couple acceleration sensors. These are being implemented on the learning robot. I've added a bunch of diagrams, code clippings, schematics, and rantings to the learning bots page. Take a look!

On a side note, I wrote my SAT exam on November 2nd and I think it went really well! I won't get my results until later November, however. SAT you ask? I thought you were Canadian? Yup, I am. But my dream is to attend the MIT, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, so I need to take the SATs for admission!

Also, if anyone knows of a FREE counter which has detailed statistics, please e-mail me. My current counter service is switching to a pay service on the 15th, so I need a new service! Thanks!

Added the About Me page. Check it out, you might learn something! I've also added circuit diagrams for the turbot and Giraffe photovore pages, along with a bit more text and theory description.

I've added pages for all my solar powered creations, all with pictures that can be enlarged to 1600x1200 for enormous detail! More info on my fire fighting robot Flamebot soon... I plan to add circuit diagrams, schematics, building notes, etc for all my bots.
