> On a related note, the sumo design is looking good. The IR enemy detection
> bits are all sorted out, at least while testing in my lab. I originally
> was hitting the IR leds with 110mA of current to ensure that the detectors
> would get reflections back... that was definitely the wrong way to go. I
> underestimated how sensitive the IR detectors are. <grin> I ended up
> scaling all the way back to 2.4mA, a factor of almost 50! Wow.
> Richard Cook and I also spent a bit of time this weekend with the LineORE2
> code and seeing if we could get it up and running on Linux or OSX. The
> ds30loader software works like a charm! Well... Linux was a little
> trickier, just needed to ensure the right mono libraries were kicking
> around. MPLAB X is Microchips new IDE that supports windows, osx and linux
> so we gave that a shot too. Also works well! It has an option to import
> older MPLAB projects. Imported, changed a few hardcoded #include functions
> that were pointing to windows specific files, and it was happy as a clam!
