    okay so a couple years ago my dad bought me the lego minstorms robotics invention system 2.0 thing with the rcx thing.

    and now hes been nagging me cuz i never use it and he wants to see me use it or else hell make me pay him back for the price since i dont use it

    so could someone show me a site where theres tutorials on how to make something cool with the kit because the book i have only has 3 examples that my dad knows about

    ..What has this got to do with his question?
    And ooh, you have 2 accounts on 2 IPs? I wish I was as cool as you. Aren't you the greatest. Go you. I guess you've never heard of a dynamic IP.
    Gay Homo? Woah, that's intelligent? Whatever's next, Hot flame? Cold ice? Dead cadaver?
    And if you've checked recently, whenever you double post it automatically corrects it.


    @Tman 47
    Have you looked on Google? Sorry I can't be more help, I haven't the faintest as to what a lego mindstorm is.
    Ah well, hope you find what you need.

    Okay, I've worked with these for like 3 years in my school's robotics class, we even got 5th in our regional competition, as for building them, just be as creative as you can, try different drive trains, such as treads or wheels, even sliders, as for the programming, it's extremely simple, and you should get a hang of them quickly, just remember to keep your programs as neat as possible. Keep at it and you should be making some incredible things.

    As for some decent tutorials, a simple google search should render some decent results, here's a decent site I quickly found http://www.transterpreter.org/docs/lego/rcx/index.html

    Let's think about this for a moment. After cursing and saying something that could be better said plenty of ways (which would at worse warrant a warning... bonus points for alliteration, yay), you go on to insult the moderators here. Let me just make it clear that you are being banned for having multiple accounts and calling us what you did rather than your original statement.

    P.S. Luckily, I've overcome my 1 IP address per day banning limit so I'd be more than happy to ban both accounts

    I'm really considering buying some mindstorms with the amazon gift money I got for my b-day.
