Part 2 of x is now in review, This article is about the skinning of Elvis. Part 1 is still in review as well. I'll keep you posted when they come out. Part 3 will be about whats in the brain cavity. How fun is that. I believe Part 4 will be a diesection of all boards and part 5 we will make a small circuit to incorporate some of the motors and make them move using a BasicStamp 2. Thanks GWJax

I think "The Elvinator" has a better ring to it.

I do agree the Elvinator sounds really GREAT! So like Peter said "so shall it be!" Thanks all for the intrest you all are showing in this project, eventhough it will be a long one. But at least my wife has my back on this one too:) She is giving me an extra allowance from my pay checks. Yea! Sometimes I fell like I'm a teen and have to ask mommy for some money. LOL But at least I don't have to worry about the bills getting paid. GWJax

I'm lucky in that respect GWjax, We both have seperate accounts and as long as the bills are paid I can do vertually what I want. Lucky me!!

No not the Toe nails go for the wifes nails instead.LOL

Also to let you know we too have diffrent accounts but she holds them like their her own. And she will put money into my playmoney account that she has no controll over except to make deposits to. But the bills have to get paid and if it was up to me, all our bills would be late. hehehe because after work I like to play with the bots and surf RoboCommunity.com. Can you blame me for that?

So Pete, is the 1st article going out first then the 2nd one the following week? I am starting the 3rd one now. It should be ready on Monday I hope. GWJax

They will be published in order, for sure, and most likely weekly.  Sometimes, our calendar will change, but we always make sure to do the best we can so things are published in a sensible order and timeline :)

And 4mem8, maybe it's good that she controls the bills, LOL...  I think if you controlled them, your entire house would be populated with robots (and spare parts, and tools of course.)

I know that if I could spend my money however I wanted, I would have limitless collections of vintage videogames, and too many laptops to keep count of.  And a gaming rig that requires liquid cooling :)

OK, Thanks Pete! With all the hype I hope their not disapointed. But at least bigger and better things are about to come out. I do hope I'm the first to complete the Elvinator, but if not thats ok too. Thanks all, GWJax
