Welcome to the journey of geek! This blog is filled with the geeky things I do covering everything which makes me, well me. It will be focused on some exercise goals,tons of sci-fi stuff, prop builds, conventions, normal geeky stuff with a tad bit more. More like my quest to find the perfect burger, my first real shot at gardening, sports and the other general life things that come up like the future remodeling of our house. There may even be some random thoughts and rants along the way.
R2-TD moves again! Last Saturday, the guys and gals at Midwest Robots spent much of the day going through Touchdowns wiring to find why literally everything quit working. What we found was the main motor controller had 3 breaks in a wire and it caused the entire system to shut down. All wires were pulled, inspected and than re-directed and organized to prevent any further problems.We also replaced the dome motor controller which had quit working months ago, added a spring to give the dome wheel more tension and made it so everything works on 1 battery instead of 2. It literally was a complete over haul on the system. At the end of the day, we made a new wiring diagram so we can make it easier to trouble shoot if anther problem does creep up.
