My name is Chris and I live in Kagoshima Japan with my wife and daughter. My robot is an Er-1 which is the current state of needing some TLC. He recently acquired a laptop from my wife who stopped a job that required lots of travel, but upon adding the laptop, I found out the battery won't hold a charge. Some of his fasteners are also rusting (everything rusts in Japan). I'm also interested in getting ahold of a er-1 gripper arm as well as connecting with all robot fans. If there is anyone looking for the ER-1 software, I think I have the latest release before Evolution stopped supporting the robot.
Other things I'm into are, astrology, brass instruments, horology, chess, and chess computers. I'm not a computer science whiz but if I can help out with something, I'll do what I can.
Nice to meet everyone.
PS, what's up with the super hardcore anti spam verification? Does that go away at some point?
