I just joined the group. I've been reading up the blogs and first robot experiments from others for just under a month now. I must admit, I am hooked! And I am looking around where I live (Perth, Australia) for PICAXE starter kits to give it a shot!
I did find the *where to buy picaxe* link in the home page mighty useful, though there arent any stores here in Perth that I can walk into and walk out a happy man!
