announcement: omg Admin has gone crazy!
« on: September 30, 2008, 04:43:03 AM »
me:
Yeap thats right, I've gone crazy! I resigned from my beloved robot fish-making job and moved to
Bangkok, Thailand, today!

you:
wtf?! why? where??? huh?????????

me:
Why? Why not?! It sounded like a good idea at the time :D

you:
But, how will this affect me? no more robot help?!

me:
It is true, I'll spend my days on a warm tropical beach, drinking my yummy Thai tea, making lots of cool robots, all while simultaneously checking out the beautiful local beach girls. Such is my new life! :P

But don't worry, when I'm not making videos and writing for my other website, I'll still be online on SoR.

you:
admin has another website?!

me:
But really, this is a good thing. I now have tons more free time to write up tutorials. In fact, I have a huge 6 month backlog of projects yet to be documented. Expect a new tutorial every other week for the rest of the year! Exciting! And don't forget to subscribe to my SoR youtube account, I got ~20 more videos soon to be uploaded.

you:
What about the robot fish?

me:
Many more publications coming for the next 6+ months. I recently submitted a paper for review to a journal 2 weeks ago, and have another in the works.

you:
So if I ordered an Axon, how would it be shipped?

me:
Don't worry, I started TWO shipping centers last week. One in Virginia (US orders) and one in Louisiana (international/special orders). I even hired some people ;D

you:
So how long will it take for you to help out on the forum again?

me:
Well, Iíll need about a week to Ďorientí myself . . . hehe I made a funny! Ok bad joke . . . Iíll be spending my time trying to learn the city and find an apartment. After Iím all settled down, Iíll be back 100%! Promise!


ps - Bangkok doesn't actually have any beaches :'(

Are you going to have a new job in robotics??

My company has a building in Thailand and it is 15 hours ahead of us here on the West coast (Pacific Time).

I am very jealous. Good luck and have fun.

Enjoy the adventure!!  You only live once (at least that is all I can remember).  Thank you for all of your work and mostly for sharing it with us.

Just another reason to be jealous of Admin!

Seriously, man, good for you. It is something that many of us dream of but simply lack the courage to throw everything to the wind and live life like it should be lived.

Best of luck.

I'm still alive and kicking in Thailand. For those that need a time out from a robot bug driving you crazy, here are my trip updates. I tried to make these new videos a bit faster paced and more exciting than the previous ones.

OMG - Admin has gone AWOL

Haven't seen him on the forum for weeks - I suspect he's having one of those 'holiday' things !?

I suspect he is practicing how to make tourism videos, how to order crab cakes, preparing some 'mega-tutorial', or just having a 'great time'. Hopefully he hasn't been impounded at the airport !

Come back Admin - we need you !! But mainly - we need your Axons  :D
