I am Radio Shack's Bitch

I'm not sure if I should classify my latest obsession as "building robots" or "buying parts for building robots". Between the BYORK (Ryan Mk III), scrounging for the two robot books I got for Christmas (Mechatronics Experiments for the Evil Genius and Robot Experiments for the Evil Genius), and VEX robot kits and parts being 50% off through April 1st (I fully blame nihilus for bringing VEX to my attention in the first place), I currently have enough robot parts to build a Gundam.

Now all I need is time to actually build the things! However, between work, relationships, and Florida Poly Retreat coming this weekend it looks like mankind has a reprieve. ;-)

Speaking of which, did anyone else out there catch the season finale of Battlestar Galactica? Damn! Cylon centurions marching down the main street of New Caprica City (which looks like a cyberpunk refugee camp!) while the stunned ragtag survivors stare slack-jawed at their new metal masters, complete with the iconic oil drum fires! Better than porn! :-)

OMFG you are *SO* right! It's been almost a week since the ep aired, so it didn't even cross my mind, but you're absolutely correct.

I've fixed it now. My most sincere, heartfelt apologies if you haven't seen it yet, and my thanks for pointing out the error either way.

BTW, there's plenty that I haven't spoiled. This is (almost) minor in comparison with some major stuff that happens in this ep. (Not an excuse- just a strong recommendation that you watch the ep.)
