Tutorial - micro:bot Kit Experiment Guide

One more thing. It would help if the comments only appeared on the experiment page they are referring to.
Wait, what? First the experiment is supposed to be about using the accelerometer to detect a bump, then it's about speeding up when going up a hill, then it turns out the actual code just detects a tap on the robot to start it moving. I think this experiment needs a rewrite.
Tutorial - SparkFun Inventor's Kit for MicroView

Correction to my previous reply: Make sure the USB extension cable (if you're using it) is plugged in all the way into the programmer. Its a tight fit and the green power LED will come on even if its not plugged in all the way. (My cable stopped half way in and it wasn't until I realized I had to give it another push that I solved the download problem).
Also make sure the MicroView is plugged in all the way into the programmer. Its a tight fit and the green power LED will come on even if its not plugged in all the way.
Just wondering why the shift register IC was included in the kit. I didn't see it used in any of the experiments.
No public wish lists :(
