String panic and making progress

Hello, well I’ve just discovered that the new batch of beaded cord I have has a slightly different pitch than the old batch.  This means that the distance per revolution will be different.  I am expecting a whole lot of this new stuff (expecting it days ago actually), so I am probably going to switch to this pitch entirely.

In other news, I can report that I am almost finished making up cables for the motors.  But that I’d underestimated (again) how long it takes to make the breakout boards for the motorshields, so that’s still to break the back of.

And, as I say, this beaded cord is missing en route anyway, so maybe my hopes about shipping kits tomorrow was folly.  Disappointed.
