6-way DDR3 Memory Roundup 
Our goal was to get some of the highest-performing memory kits and pit them against each other over various different benchmarks. This time we are mainly going to concentrate on the performance of the kits, not the technology behind them. The people at CSX, Patriot, Crucial, G.Skill, Mushkin and Corsair were nice enough to send us something to test. Now that the contenders were sorted out we can get busy...

My first computer case mod: iZenith. I won the first place of "The Coolest Case" competition in Assembly 2009 (summer). There were 18 participants, of which I sadly saw only three cases.

The main materials for this case are:
- plywood
- 2" by 2" pine
- 1mm brass plate

Surface and insides spraypainted (with can).

457mm(W) x 206mm(H) x 287(D)Robot got updated. Now it has a aluminum body instead of plywood, new motors (360 degree hacked standard servos and also the circuit boards are stripped off to allow direct control with a H-bridge), new tires and a wireless webcam (unfortunately not my own, just for testing).

The "brain" is the same old ATmega8 -board as it was in the old robot, also the bump and IR proximity sensors are the same. I attached a wireless keyboard+mouse receiver to control the robot with a keyboard (the operating range with this set is quite small, but it is still quite funny to control it with a keyboard). Don't mind about the big pile of wrapped wire coming from the receiver, because it is for testing purposes at the moment (I'm looking for another set of wireless keyboard+receiver so I can modify the receiver to have a better antenna and a shorter cable between the receiver and microcontroller).

At the moment it has two 9V batteries (one for the camera and the other is for the 5V regulator for the electronics) and four rechargeable AA cells for the motors.

EDIT: And it can wander around autonomously and avoid obstacles (well, atleast most of them)
