"Fit him with a restraining bolt..."

Now I can do like EV9D9 says. Troy Neal's machined aluminum restraining bolt arrived today.

More parts

Ordered aluminum booster covers, a restraining bolt, motor hubs, some R2 Builders tshirts for Celebration III, aluminum skirt (maybe I already mentioned that), and some other random stuff.

"I shall call him R2-G4"

(paraphrased from Dr. Evil)

I'm going to use the new Apple Mac mini as the controlling computer for my R2 unit. I have one on order from my local Mac shop. It's going to have wireless 54Mbps so I can control it remotely from my Powerbook. I'll put an iSight camera in the dome so I can see where I'm going.

This thing is tiny.

So much to do. So little time.
