LMR Downtime

LMR will be down for a software update tonight about 10pm PST (GMT-8). No big changes, just some core updates. Expected downtime is 30 minutes or less.

edit = To clarify, 2011-02-09 2200 PST (if I did timezone math correctly that's 2011-02-10 0600 GMT)

LMR-IIa Updates

Just a quick post to let you all know the few features that have been added with the IIa sub-upgrade.

The feeds listed on RSS feeds now work again

 blip.tv videos should now embed the correct video

 The User Map is now capable of showing only the user specified. In other words, when you click Location: San Bernardino, CA, US in my user page you'll only get me on the map, and it won't take 20 minutes to load!

LMR Planned Downtime

LMR will be down Wednesday 11 Nov. 2009 at 9pm PST (Pacific Standard Time, GMT -8) for some updates. Expected downtime is about half an hour.

Yes, this has been changed already ;) Due to the

Mr. Basic Challenge 2 ( autumn 2009)

challenge ending tonight, I don't want to mess up anybody's contest entry.


LMR's search engine

As everyone here is well aware the LMR search engine is fu^H^H broken. I am working on figuring out a replacement that works with what we already use, (PHP, MySQL) doesn't require me learning another langauge (Java), and could actually be suited to providing additional functionality (faceted search of components). Fun stuff, and it is my main LMR priority right now. That doesn't help you guys much though, so I figured I'd make a post about other workable options in the meantime.

Other electronics (not necessarily robotic)

A place for the discussion TofuRobot brought up regarding other electronic projects. Instead of being lost to the shoutbox nether regions,here's a screenshot of the beginning.


Personally, I think tip/walkthrough would be the right place for stuff that can also apply to robotics. Non-robotics (like the carduino example) would go in a blog.
