Let's Make Robots!

Got my stuff. Got the axe stack instead of the Picaxe regular board. Have a question.

Ok got the axe stack. I dont want to use it with the bread board. Am going to solder the pins for f/f jumpers instead. One issue I am having is what type of board to buy for my motor controler. I have L293D Motor Driver IC and would also like to add a socket for an eeprom. I am going to order a regular picaxe board like the one in the tutorial. I was just wondering if this was possible to use or should I just wait. I am going to solder it together at least. Just thought I may learn more from trying to use it. :)

I think I am just gonna wait for my Picaxe regular 28x1 board. This board looks like it is made for the bread board only. trying to hook up all the outside pins to what I need them connected to is just beyond me right now. I am just gonna wait and then start my tutorial bot. :P
When I said solder to the axestack I meant I have to put it together. It is a kit with a board and the rest of the components. But ya I will check my firmware version. Is there no way to upgrade the firmware on these? Most devices can be updated if something is wrong with the firmware. If not then ya I will have to send it back. :(
