Let's Make Robots!

Stupid

Things that drive you mad!

Have you ever been stuck on a problem for hours or even days and then find that the answer was so simple?

I would like to make a collection of robot tips and tricks for when you get stuck. A list you can look at of all the stupid things you might have done. Hopefully by creating this list then in the future when you get stuck on a problem that just doesn't make sense you can read through it and solve your problem in just a few minutes.

Stupid / Beginning Questions

I'm somewhat new to arduino and finally found out about libraries.  Unfortunately I have looked for instructions on how to create one and how to upload an existing library.  So if someone could give me step-by-step instructions on how to get this library i have here sitting on my desktop to something i can use in code. (please dummy-down the instructions).

It would also be helpful if someone could provide me with a small sample code for a robot that uses Ping)))
