Birth Announcement  
 


davidology

is pleased to announce

the birth of a bouncing baby Roomba 550,

on October 28, 2007, at 15:27,

in Manhattan Beach, California, Costco,

weighing in at 12 pounds, 8 ounces,

13.5 inches, 36 MHz



Haven't chosen a final name, but thinking "Doral" since it's a 5th generation Roomba, and that's the name of the 5th Cylon model.

I've had to robot-proof the house. I keep having to chase it and yell at it for going the wrong way. So far Doral has managed to knock over things, lock itself in my bathroom twice, unplug my laptop about 5 times, and get stuck under the couch. It really hates the yoga ball.

I can't wait 'til it grows up and takes over the world.
 
 
 
location: W Hollywood, CA
Mood: Proud

I seem to remember a journal entry where you were talking about beta testing video games? Could you tell me how to get into that? I have a friend who would love to test video games!

You just have to watch out on rss feeds from kotaku, majortom, gay gaymer, and various forums for the offers. Usually it's just signing up at the right time.

hmmm I dunno. but it IS a Cylon :-P It's mostly getting called "Roomba" anyway (or "Roomba Aaron Doral" when it's misbehaving or just not listening).

Will you be dressing up your roomba with a knitted sweater?

NPR did a show a while back about roomba owners and their new pets.
