you know that your addicted to robotics when...........
1. you buy a new computer just so that ou can have more storage for your un compiled programs
2. you sell our car to buy robotics parts
3. you quit your job so that you have more time for robotics

now you continue
(ex 4,5,6,7,8,9,)

3. you quit your job so that you have more time for robotics

... I envy you ;)
Silly engineering tuition of $10.6K + books and other expenses has me stuck working two jobs this summer at 40+ hours a week...
I haven't had time to do any of the projects I had planned for the summer  :'( :(

...and to add to the list:
17. When your parents take away your current robot because you didn't do your chores...(happened to me when I was working on a robot for this project...which I still haven't finished yet  :-[ ...I'll get it done I promise RobotX!)
18. When you find yourself programming/building/tinkering around with robotics at 5 in the morning...all the time. ;D
19. When you have 3 cabinets and several component storage containers and still find you need more space for your robotics stuff.

23. When you hang on to ancient and archaic micro-controllers and take time to re-learn them rather than buy a prepackaged product that can have you up and running sooner.

i'll enter Arduino land soon enough, just knocking the rust out of the brainpan...
