A Crash Course in Robots with The Owl in the Rafters
This month on The Owl in the Rafters, I'd like to start a two(maybe 3?) part review on a subject I've been keeping on the back burner for quite some time now. Let me start by saying that I am not an old man, I do not consider myself old, nor do I consider myself by any means "old school,"
