Robot builders:
I've often suggest people use Erector sets to build robots, especially 
for newbees.  While in Hillsborrow (SP?) this week end (South of DFW at 
the intersection of the 2 I35s) I shopped at the outlet mall.  
Naturally my kids drug (sp?) me into the toy store.  At the Very back, 
they have the steel-tec erector sets for $15, Normally $70 I think).  
These are pretty big sets.  1-trillion parts if you count the threads 
on each screw, and all of the holes in the girders.

DPRG motto:  It isn't as easy as it looks.
