Fifteen stone nine
I was fifteen stone nine this morning, a new low. Um - not an absolute new low, there was a time in the dim and distant past when I was lower. But a new low in recent history.
Rover got stuck while cleaning. I searched all over, under couches, under beds, I couldn't find her. Ladysolly did a better search than me, and found her stuck in the bathroom, tucked in to a corner by the toilet, and unable to escape.
Experience with Rover has led me to two features that I want.
1) Mapping. I want the robot to make a map of the house, and I want the map to persist, and not be drawn afresh each day. And then I want to be able to say "Clean this part and not that".
2) I want that map to show where the robot is, and I want to know the battery state.
3) I want it to be able to clean, run out of battery, automatically recharge, then resume cleaning where it left off.
4) I want the auto-empty.
And that's why I'm looking at vacuum cleaners like the Roomba S9+ and similar.
