Christmas presents ...

An iPad 1 (hand-me-down from ladysolly). I've already installed an ssh program on it.
Four pair of XL trousers (my previous size was XXL) for caching in.
A bathroom scale; I won't have to keep using ladysolly's.
Three rather interesting-looking books.


A USB robotic arm, this is the Maplin's version. I'm not sure yet what I'll do with it, but I'm sure I'll think of something.


  1. Will it be easy enough to convert the motors to stepper motors or write a script that allowed the motors to think they are stepper motors?

  2. I can control the new robotic arm from a perl problem in linux, except that I can't seem to make the base rotate - everything else works.
