Re: Why can't we have URLs in signatures?

I don't quite get how this is going to stop spammers. You explained exactly how/why in the second part of your post, snipped below. Also, people are less likely to go to the link we put in our signatures because they can't 'click' it. Second* rule of marketing: make it easy! It's harder to copy and...

Re: How do you make a NXT-G block?

Back when I downloaded LabView 7.1, they still did. That was about a year ago though. I do remember that (back then) you couldn't find 7.1 on the LabView website, but I did find it with Google.

Re: Temperature Sensor: Where's the block in NXT-G?

It appears that you already found TheNXTStep, but I'll post this link just in case you hadn't seen it before. Pretty much just a redirect to the Team Hassenplug website, so not much there. http://thenxtstep.blogspot.com/2010/02/lego-temperature-sensor-splicing-it.html Re: the education version of NX...

Re: Best Internet Browser

I voted for Firefox. While I only use Chrome right now (and actually don't even have FF installed on my new computer...) because of it's simplicity, I still think FF is a better browser even if it was a bit more of a memory hog than Chrome.

Re: Want to start HTML?

Yes but then the majority of IE users won't be able to see it. I know the people of this forum usually have more sense, I'm using FF7a1 but some people will not see it properly. I think that sometimes web page developers (or people that are just playing around :)) have to decide to better-support t...

Re: Calligraphy Ms

I voted for the top row. I like the variation in it the most. Also, I really like "Row 2, Column 1 is the "mountain shaped" one" but maybe just 'cause I like mountain climbing so much ;).

Re: Best batteries for the NXT

Ok, will have to bounce over to eBay and see what is on right now. And ~$30 US is still a great deal, even if the battery is slightly used up/run down. I'm afraid I've caused the topic to go, well, off topic :P. Sorry about that.

Well, for that price I may as well look into it. Where did you find the NXT LiPo pack?
