    I just got back to tell Engineering this new joke, and I suddenly went BLANK.

    Cart was ready at 12:00, ordered, and it was lost by the time PayPal checked me out. WOW!

    I have built a few of these as workbenches for my basement and garage. The 4x4 for legs is definitely a help. But adding adjustable feet to the legs might be enough. Even rubber feet might do. Floors are not as flat as we all think. Bracing with a diagonal will help, but for me, the floors are not level and putting on adjustable feet was the trick.

    On other scrap boards, you kinda expect it to have problems or be incomplete. But when it says LCD, you do kinda expect there will be an LCD component. I read it a bunch of times, and know there were no promises, but where the main component for the board in question is missing, it might be helpful to be clear on that.

    I got some ProtoSnap MiniBot boards! Also got some other boards. Many of the same, but fine with me. I was looking to practice learning some surface mount soldering. Now, maybe I can figure out an repopulate some of these! I’m having so much fun just figuring out what some of these were and what I would do if I could make them work. Now I have to get back online and order parts!

    My order just came in! I used the boards to pad out my order to get the shipping. Now I am looking, I wish there were parts kits I could get to populate some of these to try. Not looking for support, just a convenient collection of parts that would match the ding and dent boards with the same rules as the boards for support and such. I am very excited at the selection I received, Looking forward to learning how to do some SMT!

    While talking about revisions, I was hoping to see breakouts for the A/D pins on the XBee. That would make a nice remote joystick controller if the joystick can wire to the remote XBee and pass the signals to the robot XBee for things like PWM output to a servo or something.
