Netiquette, Asking For Code

I've seen a few posts suggesting asking for code is bad form.

I'm inclined to agree but I'm not completely sure. I think many of us don't always post code because it's not nice and tidy. I know I haven't posted code for this reason. There are plenty of times it wouldn't bother me if I were to be asked for code I hadn't posted.

In general, if someone asks me for code, I post it.

CNC/Prototyper for Cheap

I am making a robot that needs a kermillion custom parts and I have like no money. I have seen the reprap machine, and am interested.

 I have also seen a manual one that looks modifiable, but not as user friendly, for much more money.

Any suggestions?

 

Hondas new balancing personal transport.

Apparently its insides is a big secret but if you look closely you can see the machine actually moving sideways as it keeps balance.

I don`t know about you guys but as soon as I saw it I wanted to pull it apart to find out how it works, or at least turn it upside down and take a look at the bottom.

Setting up a QRB1134?

Does anyone know how to set up one of these things:

I can't seem to get it working.

Someone made a quick "tutorial" on LMR but I just don't get it.

I found a diagram here that just doesn't make sense. The wire colors are all messed up.

Then I found this:
