That's right, all of your gracious time has not been in vein. I should have an ez-robot complete kit by Monday. Just in time to get comfortable enough to have to learn the new features in the soon to be released update. So, exciting!

Great news dude, make sure you have plenty of everything else you may need too, there's nothing worse than waiting for 4 weeks for servo cables to turn up from China...
I owe it to myself to crawl before I walk, for a day or two at least. So it's probably best that I have the Duplo board for my first kit. It's like buying an M16 and never having shot a gun before. Not a real good idea. I've spent plenty of money in the past on things with extra features that were, for me, unnecessary. I'm more than happy to buy a bigger/smaller, better version when I feel the urge to.
I've got a few ideas for just what comes with the kit to keep me occupied for the first week or two. The code I've seen all looks pretty straight forward to me I just can't wait to see it all in action. I could get my kit Saturday but I plan on Monday. I got 2 day delivery (It was only $1.50 more.) I always give a day or two for processing so we shall just have to wait and see.
You'll be sure to hear about it ;-)
I started running and tripped.
DJ owes you a commission, because any question I had you were there to offer great advice and it made the purchase easy. Being at school and not working and buying a house I've put myself on a budget and was saving up for one, but was approved for a 0 interest card so the money I was paying on a storage unit that will soon be emptied will go to pay for the ez-b. I'm just lucky enough to be able to get it now and pay it off in a few months. LOL, I made myself sound impoverished. I'm actually not doing too bad. I've got unemployment and my woman makes decent money, I just feel bad about buying myself unnecessary things when I'm bringing in a smaller contribution to the family than I'm used to doing. I already have a fairly expensive Transformers habit the woman puts up with.
And being raised primarily by my great grand parents I was taught at an early age to never spend more than you can realistically pay off in 3 months. "The EZ-Robot Complete kit is so cheap, I'm unemployed and can afford one!" (® ; &tm; AH! OH! ROBOTO!, MMXIII used with permission. Just kidding.) @DJ you feel free to use that in your marketing campaigns if you'd like ;-)
I'm looking forward to getting to know all of the ez-robot community better. I've been reading the forums and there are alot of really talented, sharp, and (my personal favorite) out of the box thinkers, that haunt these halls. I hope to help others some day as so many of them have helped me. Now it's all just a matter of passing tick, tick, tick, time.
