Found An Interesting Glitch

I found an interesting glitch today. Gizmo is a good robot. He has been obeying all his commands except......... The word stop. Giz will respond to every verbal command, except "stop". A little disconcerting when he is on his way out of the room. I tried typing it different ways, but still the same result. Has anyone encountered this before?

Wall E Program

Hey DJ, a little clarification please. When I saved the "Wall e Big" file as a document; then opened it I'm seeing what I presume is promgramming code. Is this correct?

Looking For A Tutor

I'm looking for someone that would be willing to tutor me with the EZ-B via personal email. A perspective tutor should have lots of patience.

question

Wiring The Sparkfun TB6612FNG Motor Controller

DJ I'm sure you're tired of hearing the same questions over and over, so I will appeal to other builders here. Could someone be kind enough to make a wiring diagram that clearly (for us thick skulled ones)shows the hook up from the motor controller to the EZ-B board. In the video that DJ made (God luv his patience) I see he use 4 servo wire sets. I...

Speech Vs Soundboard

I've been studying the " Wall E Big" file. Would scripts written for speech be placed on the soundboard? I get a window on "speech" that says only one instance can be written there.
