Status on robotics project “Omniuino”: Nothing as of yet as the unit has not been delivered as of yet. I am hoping it should be by the end of the week though. It’s going to cost me 120.00 $ USD to get the EZ-B Module kit and start building and programming with the help of some of the more seasoned robotists out there lending a hand. I must have done something while I worked and cleaned up the front yard last night because my lower back is killing me 9 1200 mg Ibu’s is not even phasing the pain, so I’ve been very careful on how I walk and move.
Wife wanted me to cut the grass out front as soon as I got home last night, which for me was like 6:30 since I’m covering for my superior while he’s on vacation for the week. So I’m working like 10 hour days this week THANK GOD for OT! I was however out there till about 9:30 last night before I just gave up on the weeds and decided to relax on some PC time and ended up asleep in my chair till 2 am this morning.
It seems like we’ll be selling the Saturn to the repair shop since they could use the Saturn parts. We might get 650 to 700 for it, which may go to the purchase of a different car that won’t be placed out of business anytime soon. I’ve also been studying up on the auto maintenance of the ford, since it has a tiny leak on the undercarriage. Oil gauge was going nuts the past 2 weeks because it was down a quart. SO I’ve bought 5 quarts and a filter 32.00 on sale at AutoZone and saved about 35.00 in the process. That will keep the dang thing running better for a small while.
I scored some cool pc electronics again. Found a micro innovations ic825c and a 1.3 MP Webcam as well. I also found a 5 port HDMI switch and a few cords and plugs for it and a 8 Port KVM switch too as well as 4 512 mgs 266 Sticks of memory. Not so sure what to do with them but I think I know where I might be able to make a profitable return on it. Finally got Bruce’s birthday/Christmas present off to him as well with the words “Prints, art, do not bend, do not damage” on the back of it. I was going to insure it but didn’t have the money enough for that. So I hope he is very careful on opening it. I’ll say this much one of those prints, costs about 125 to 130$ on eBay and I sent him the entire set. I think it should be to him by Friday/Saturday.
Anyways, I’m back to work after my break and to the front desk since I am working as receptionist this afternoon.
