Sample text

You can look at the contents of this RAM by entering: md 0 ff pcbug11 will display the requested addresses in hex. You could try changing any of these addresses with the mm command; for example: mm 10 a5 would write the byte $a5 into address $0010. However, pcbug11 uses quite a bit of the 68hc11’s RAM, and writing values into that RAM will probably crash pcbug11. If that happens, simply turn off the 68hc11’s power, reconnect the power, then enter the pcbug11 command: restart pcbug11 should then be able to reconnect to the 68hc11 computer.

When I started this column, Internet access was pretty much limited to colleges and universities, and to a few enlightened companies that provided their employees with ‘net access in the form of email and news. In those days, there was no Web, and few individuals had built even one ‘bot, let alone a herd of them. How things have changed in such a short time! Today, Internet access is cheap and easily available, and the Web plays a major role in helping hobbyists pool their information. In just one afternoon of Websurfing, you can visit dozens of sites filled with plans, information, pictures, and tools for helping you build your ‘bot.

And if all of the above isn’t enough incentive to hit the Internet, I’ll add one more item. You can send email to me directly at the address provided on my web page. But getting onto the Internet remains the single greatest step you can take to ensure your successful start at robot building. I consider it so important that I use it as a benchmark for how serious a person really is in pursuing this hobby. If someone asks me for help in building robots, and then tells me they aren’t now and don’t intend to be hooked to the ‘net, I assume they aren’t all that interested in amateur robotics.
