Hi, I'm still here!
April 2, 2009
I bet you're all wondering, "hey, why isn't Zanth around posting bots anymore?"
Well, truth be told, I haven't touched my projects since graduation. Searching madly for a job has taken precedence over everything else. Now that I have a job (!) I decided it would be great to get back into things.
I started by completely taking apart Mortimer's circuits. One reason why I haven't wanted to work on him is that it's so darn hard to troubleshoot him on the tiny PCB I originally bought. I've bought a bigger PCB and can now lay everything out. I don't have any pictures of it yet, but it is definitely MUCH prettier than the former circuit.
I took some pictures at my work I thought I might share in absence of new Mort pics. Unfortunately, I can't take pics of my project, y'know with the whole NDA thing, but since I'm in a hangar I get to see some awesome new/used helicopters, jet/prop planes, and the BIGGEST FRIGGIN' BATTERY I'VE EVER SEEN.
I look forward to updating Mort's status in the coming week.
I really need to get a closer picture of this guy. He looks to me like a spaniard in full armor, but instead of him holding a sword, he's holding calipers. Too freakin' cool.
