What's new with these
Recent changes and updates
August, 2003 -- Did a whole bunch of formatting cleanup, robot "thumbnail" images now have a "zoom" watermark vs. the old supplemental magnifying glass graphic (should speed page loads and handle multiple browsers more gracefully).
July, 2003 -- Changed license from "Open Content" (now defunct) to "Creative Commons."
March, 2003 -- Added Grant McKee's BEAMbots -- see the 2- and 5-motor walker, head, turbot, pummer, and vibrobot gallery pages. Also added Brett Hemes' BEAMbots -- see the solarroller, pummer, head, 2-motor walker, photopopper, vibrobot, and ornament gallery pages.

Meanwhile, I added a slew of new 'bots by Wrighter the Pessimist and Adam Harris (Morrow's End) -- see the head, squirmer, pummer, 1-motor walker, and 2-motor walker galleries.
June,2002 -- Added Björn Brindefalk's robots to the gallery pages -- photopoppers, a 2-motor walker, a turbot, a miniball, and a symet. Also added Gary Huston's robots -- a photopopper, a miniball, a symet, a head, a vibrobot, and a magbot.
February 3, 2002 -- Added a slew of Wrighter's robots to the gallery pages -- two miniballs, a solarroller, a popper, a flagwaver, and an ornament; circuit pages have now been moved to the circuits library.
October 19, 2001 -- A few new bots have been added over the past month; meanwhile, I've got new traffic tracking code (and you can now see the stats yourself, via a link on the "Legalities" page).
