Sad story about Chopstick Junior and Campus Party Berlin 2012

Well, let me begin with an introduction of the robot and the event but you need to promise me to read it to the end...or just the end if you don't have time.

Any hardware shop for electronic or robotics near Hampi/India?

Hi you Indian fellows in LMR,

my friend is moving to Hampi/India next week and I am wondering if there is any way to buy robototic/electronic stuff offline in a local hardware shop? What is the closest shop...Goa, Bangalore? I know there is a hackerspace in Goa but still that's not exactly around the corner of Hampi.

Please let me know if you know something or let me know how you guys handle buying that stuff. maybe you could build up a community for shared order to save shipping costs if you are ordering from China or antother country.

 

Why we don't want to be sucked into another universe!

Well, it's about time that somebody (me) stopps the danger of the words found in kariloy's posts. 

As some LMRians already mentioned, we get sucked into another dimension or universe by spelling out them loud.

Now...kariloy, step forward, be a man and give us some evidence that we are all wrong and there is no danger to say those words loud. 

We want a video, you saying the word which is found in your last post...

Chopstick Junior's last minutes

 

This is the sad story about the end of the lovely Chopstick Junior. His life ended much to early. I will miss him and his funny moves especially when he lighted up my way in the darkness.

 

But everything has an end....this came sudden and it was my fault. The only thing I can do is to keep him in my mind and heart, only this keeps his spirit alive.
