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.
GaagleBot
I created a dedicated site for the little fellow for fun with showcase app. http://www.GaagleBot.com

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.
