Work in progress

Firstly, Hello to all my very very very patient readers!

Things are progressing well on the hardware side of things, I have upgraded the power supply and it's associated circuitry, have incorporated an LCD into the robot, and have massively revised the Arduino's program.

Unfortunately, I have hit a bit of a wall as the current revision of the code has a problem, namely the Arduino locks up after running for 5-10 seconds.

Because of this, I have decided to rewrite the serial IO code (where I think the problem is) from scratch. This should be done by the end of next weekend, where I will take another big step forward, and release it under the GPL!

So, more to follow soon, and thank you all for staying with this blog despite my very intermittent updates.
