My name's Alan. I've been a long time lurker on LMR, and I'm also studying as a PhD student over at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory in the UK.
As I'm coming to the end of my PhD, I've recently started up a company, Dawn Robotics Ltd, with the aim of being able to support myself making robots as a career - I don't think I'm really cut out for academia full time. ;)
The new WalMart just opened last week here in Saskatoon. I decided to visit it which was probably a mistake cause most of my time was spent looking for a parking spot and waiting in line to pay for stuff. The reason I went was because supposedly this one is the largest one in western Canada. I probably should have stayed home because I wasn't able to make any progress on my sumo last weekend, however I did find something cool.
I had the best online experience with this store. The shipping was super fast (they shipped the very next day), the packaging was excellent and Mike at MR is extremely polite and prompt. Shipping is very reasonable.
