i doubt it being super hard, it'd still be very hard for people with no programming experience. I think people are working on C and java support aswell as the initial software.

Oh, YEAH!! Forgot all about that one. Good one Chev.

Super_toast--How do you type if you're a dead horse?

Or was that a metaphor for easily the most memorable post Too-Damn-Much has ever made?


Ever?

It comes with a program to make it easier than getting a drunk and/or high stupid slut into bed after 15 other guys the same night.

The default thing is designed for kids, you can install all sorts of random stuff on it (Java and a bunch of other languages can be done), try Googling for "rcx".

Also 15 guys and a girl beating off dead horse etc. etc.

it's kinda drag and drop commands to an interface and edit the options. that was how it worked in the Lego-Land (but they had the old mindstorms back then). I think the new generation of mindstorms works the same way.

It's designed for kids. . . I sure hope you can figure it out.

They use it in a lot of universities to teach robotics programming and the like. It has a lot more potential than its marketing would imply.

Oh, absolutely. We use them in the robotics class here, but I'm saying that just about anyone should be able to make it do something.

"'are gay' is gay" are gay.



Also, after reading your post a few times. It made me question if "are" was actually a word or not.

I thought I'd gone crazy for a minute.

You can drag and drop using a flowchart tool, .net languages are supported through an API available on MSDN and there is documentation on the bytecode available on the Lego website.
