Three Forumistas in September SERVO Magazine, One in N&V

Ignoring my inane monthly ramblings in the Roboto column, there are two articles of substance in the new Sept issue of SERVO. Seasoned author Carol Hazlett made the cover and has a great 5-page article on Drawing with Light using BlocklyProp on a Scribbler 3, AKA S3. And Jeff Haas debuts as a new author with a timely 6-page article on Bob, the Talking Skull, just in time for Halloween. Awesome stuff all!

I just received the September Nuts & Volts (SERVO's sister magazine), which coincidentally has a different talking skull, confirming that Jeff is onto something. Also, forumista Jonnymac has his always-fine "Spin Zone" column, on stepper motors this month.

Both magazines are worth reading AND writing for. Anyone & everyone here, please consider submitting an article on most anything of general interest. IF YOU'RE LISTENING TO THIS, THEN YOU ARE THE RESISTANCE! The process is painless, editor Robin is a sweetheart, and you can earn some money back from your hobby. Pitch your article ideas to robin AT nutsvolts.com soon!

  • Just got the November issue of SERVO (in print, whoa) in today's mail. Another particularly great issue, no thanks to me. Some really nice articles.
