Thanks guys!!!!!! yeah wow.... quite an honor!!!!!! if I had known it would get so much attention, I would have made a better video lol! Hits are off the charts now, pretty crazy, riding the hype. A couple of weeks ago swashbot3 video was featured in the science and tech section of youtube, swashbot1 was on engadget, but never expected swashbot1 to hit the main youtube page, holly crap! A little cute character wins over complex tech, it just doesn't get any better than that!

Again thanks! I'm just overwhelmed by it all... this morning I checked my email and got over 1k messages from youtube lol :)

Oh it gets better. Your "I need a job" vid has been on the front page of geekarmy all weekend and they are snagging it from another site of course. (link is broken at the moment, can't see where it's heading to)

Congrats man!! I can't wait to see these little guys out at RoboGames:)

The comments are hysterical too! What's really cool is that (with a quick scroll) I didn't see too many of the typical troll questions like, "Dude, why didn't you do _________?" I always hated it when shitheads came up to me like that at conferences. I'm totally cool with constructive criticism, but don't be a dick about it.

"Some people have too much time on their hands". That's the comment that gets me, makes me want to throttle someone. Of course, it isn't generally written in any English you'll find in the dictionary, so please consider that a paraphrase. ;)

I don't know what it is about youtube comments, but they seem to ALWAYS be the most unintelligible and retarded posts made on the internet. It pains me to think that its a general census of the world's ability to use proper grammar and spelling.

>> think that its a general census

"[...] it's [...]", a contraction of "it is"... Oh, come on, I had to "say" it... ;)

Seriously, though, totally agreed. I can't believe this is the future of humanity, hence the reason I joined Skynet. :D

Lol thanks guys. Well, if you scroll through the 1600 or so comments as of now... you'll see a big mix of comments. Most are good, some are bad... and then there are the truly strange behavior that I just can't quite figure out. I am convinced now that a lot of 13 year old boys comment on youtube, with comments like:

" I think iT'D be cooler if it could fly! (and shoot lasers)"

" put a camera on it, make it silent off to the girls locker room we g0"

" That's not a real robot. That's a computer animation. :)"

and censored here....

"%$*%$, I HATE this piece of $&*#. you're a complete douchebag. #*$&# you, and go shove this robot up your mom's smelly $#$##. $#$#$"

" na just dog [email protected]#@# really
im gonna eat your family"

I'd have to say most of the comments are nice though, and lots of people wanting to buy them etc... but there are some really irrelevant comments, which I don't know if I should have a good laugh, or be really scared for the future of mankind.... I was going to copy some of the good ones here, but after censoring there is just nothing left lol. I try to remove and marked as spam some of the really bad ones, but I just can't keep up. In the time it took me to post this, I've gotten 23 comments in 3 videos....

Yeah, Some people just have no intelligence when it comes to something technical, And i agree that it is probably 13-16 year olds who make these comments.Sad really

I'm having it out with one that is at least a WEE bit brighter than most on one of Trossen's videos... He's just anti-pc-robotics, pro-microcontroller, and flat-out refuses to accept there's a time and place for each.

I'll have to audit your comments, CrabFu, and whack a couple of them in the nose with a newspaper too. ;)

I managed to bury a few with a couple different accounts. Overall outstanding commentary (I made it through 50%). I go back to my original contention that these are eminently saleable items... :P

FYI, build videos are now up on the tutorials section, due to popular demand.... or over flooded email box :)

agh! that link is only available for beta testers (tutorials);) Next week, I'll open them up for everyone to look at and start adding tutorials. I want to look through everything in the tutorials section first and I gotta do a bunch of backend permission changes and I'm pretty busy this weekend.
