Spot the spelling mistake for this lake

A number of signs placed by local Massachusetts authorities incorrectly said Lake Chargoggagoggmanchaoggagoggchaubunaguhgamaugg...while the correct spelling is Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg

Maybe they should be using Amazon's naming conventions: LAKE C45G

Turn your roomba into a walking google bot

The Gåågle Bot - AJAX Robot #2

When my latest son was born I got a little worried since he didn't look at all like me. I decided I needed a discrete device to spy on my wife while I was at work. I started hacking my roomba and made a GåågleBot (pronounced /google-bot/). GåågleBot is a "home crawler" consisting of a vacuum roomba with an on board webserver and camera. While the vacuum goes about its business, it extracts text from the images it takes. The text is later put in a database on the roomba and searchable through a web interface. This was a good pretext for my wife. I, of course, also added the ability to remote control the roomba using AJAX...for spying purposes...hehe.
I created a dedicated site for the little fellow for fun with showcase app.

This is the next version of My AJAX Lego Robot. I'm working on yet another version of my AJAX Remote Controlled thingies...stay tuned.
