You can get kits for $100 or less, focus on the programming issues of controlling mechatronics, and reading sensors. Contests happen all over the place, and the robot is a decent starter platform for other contests, like line following.

You've got pine trees with nearly 15 inch needles there? Holy cow!
Maybe they're closer to 1/4 wavelength, but I'm betting the density of moist organic matter has more to do with it than the length of the needles.
No, then the unions will cause the chips to cost 4X as much..
God made man. Sam Colt made them equal. What martial arts do you know of where people do not compete in weight classes and gender categories?
Unfortunately the 20 year adult old victim in this case would be legal prohibited from exercising her right to self defense with a firearm in most states.
So in other words, if this part goes, and the rest stays, what are we left with? A bunch of smaller corporate hand-outs that don't fix much of anything in a horrendously broken system. Most people will still have the shitty insurance they already have, and they will see their costs continue to rise the same way that they would have if nothing at all had happened..
Actually no, the administration has already said this part of the law would sever a large part of the rest. Preexisting condition coverage for instance. If people aren't required to have insurance, companies can't be expected to cover those with preexisting conditions, because then no one would need to actually buy insurance until it was needed.
No reason. I have a RepRap style extruder head for my 3'x4' CNC router, a head that holds a Sharpie marker on the same co-axis as my router, a dremel for small work, and a 2.5HP Porter Cable router motor for bigger work.
I haven't done it yet, but have some parts that I will probably extrude, then switch to the dremel to drill some holes out to the proper size, and maybe to mill a few surfaces smooth (printed parts have a stringy/webbed texture).
The feature you are referring to is "slide-lock". Most modern semi-automatic pistols have it with the exception of some smaller "pocket" pistols. Some guns will release the slide and put a new round into battery automatically when the next magazine is inserted, and some require the slide release to be flipped to release it.
42 U.S.C. 1983, commonly referred to as "section 1983" provides:
Every person who under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, Suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer's judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia.
This may be the purpose of manual testing, but the idea of having high code coverage with automated testing it to prevent regressions, minimize time to release, and even act as documentation via example usage.
It's less about release N, and more about release N+1.
Don't most muggers take peoples watches anyway?
