Picaxe Basic Issues

In Picaxe Basic how do I write a piece of code that I only want to execute the first time my main loop runs. For example: I want to get and store an initial value for a sensor and use that later on in my code; however, once I have stored this initial value I don't want the program storing a new value the next time it runs.

Continuously Rotating Servos

I have a pair of servos that were modded to rotate continuously about a year ago. I've been trying to make them rotate with the command:

servo 0, 1 : servo 1, 1

but I find that this does nothing but make the servos twitch. However, when I use:

servo 0, 1 : servo 1, 1

wait 2

the servos rotate clockwise for two seconds. Furthermore, when I use:

servo 0, 2 : servo 1, 2

wait 2

Modding a Servo

If this: http://www.servocity.com/html/hs-311_standard.html is my servo to what position should I have my picaxe turn it to so I can make it continuously rotate?

How To Control Two Servos With An Arduino (QUESTION)

Hey guys for Christmas I go an Arduino Duemilanove and a robot chasis called a scooterbot that had two servos built into it. Anyway me being a complete noob to the Arduino I have no idea how to control two servos (by control I mean hook up to the Arduino and program). Could somebody please explain to me how?

Advert. Idea

 Alright first of all this is no advertisement but read on. Instead I have poosted an idea that I have had. This is what if we were to post forum entries about companies parts, kits, products, and etc. and every new post made we could ask the company to donate a small sum of money for the good of LMR.
