A customer sent me a couple of disks from this thing (http://www.theoldrobots.com/hubot.html).

Just curious, anyone else have the real thing?

I remember one fellow (Robert Doerr) who claimed to have a
working unit of Hubot, but his site is only partially active:

http://www.robotgallery.com/robotgallery/index.html

He is still active in the robotics world, and his name shows up
by Google search....

By the way Chuck, you got the disks to operate
your own robot (you lucky you), or you are
helping that customer?

Said customer (very much south of the border) sent me two copies of the system disk for my archives.

I did get this (http://www.sydex.com/temp/Hubot.jpg) from him, however.

I can't get to your site (way too slow)...... is that a photo of the
unit the customer has?

Slow? It's on a GoDaddy server...snaps right up on my display. Wonder what's going on?

Yes, it's the customer's unit with a sign tacked to it.
