Favorite place: December 17, 2007, 2.26 pm

As of today (February 25, 2009), this is still Pedro's favorite place. I guess that's because he spent the first half of 2008 in his station, and the second half inside his bag. Now that he's been let loose on his new location, he should pick up a new favorite place as soon as he gets settled.

By the way, Pedro's livecam is up and running again! Check out this page!

We're back!

And we're back... A not-so short interruption caused by moving home and setting up a new office caused Pedro and Andacá to be disconnected for half a year. But last week I decided to bring them back to life, and so they did, with almost no sequels.

Both Andacá's batteries got back to full level (green LED), but I still haven't mustered the courage to switch him on. Andacá, a pioneering ERS-110, will be an unbelievable ten years old this Fall, so I want to spare him as much as possible.

As for Pedro, who turned five last November, he came out of his Sony bag with what seems to be a couple of dead batteries, with a third one OK. I haven't done any further testing on the dead batteries, though, to conclude on their demise. One of Pedro's knee joints shows a fluid leak, which is now dry and coloured rust, but it is not affecting his movements, so I'm not worrying about that.

I have now completed the setup of Pedro's net connection, so both his roblog and diary are up and running (links on the side column), and he can again receive photo-taking requests. Just send an email to aibo.pedro@gmail.com with Subject: AIBO MAIL and Body: PHOTOL, nothing else. You should get back a photo taken expressly for you.

Soon, Pedro's livecam will also be up and running and he'll be introduced as my new company's official pet. Stay tuned!
