Controlling a Picaxe with a Wii Nunchuck

Anyone have any idea how to get a Wii Nunchuck to work with a picaxe?  I've seen webpages like this where they've used an Arduino but I couldn't find anyone using a picaxe.  http://www.windmeadow.com/node/42

Solarbotics motor question

My robot is going to compete in a competition that will require it to compete in different competitions.  For one competition, it has to be very efficient, and basically keep following a black line longer than everyone else.  Another competition that it has to compete in is a tug of war.  The rule is, it cannot change its hardware in between competitions.  Naturally, for the endurance competition, you want to hook up a smaller voltage to the motor.  But I was thinking of using the following circuit in order to give the motor more voltage for the tug of war competition:

Picaxe 40X1 Pulsin and Pulsout

Hello.  Anyone know how to use a pin on port C, say...c7 (leg 26) in order to get a pulsin or pulsout for the 40X1 picaxe?  I know the syntax just to turn the pin high or low, but I don't know how to reference the pin when I use the pulsin command, for example what would go in the "pin" part of the PULSIN command:

 

PULSIN pin,  state, wordvariable

 

Thanks in advance for any help you can give =)

Player/Stage

Hello, everyone.  I was wondering if anyone has ever done anything with Player/Stage.  If you don't know what it is, it's open source software that you can use to simulate your robot.  I've done a little work with it, but I can't really find any good resources for it.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
