R2D2 talked to me and I didn't even need C3PO to translate! [Feb. 3rd, 2010|12:10 pm]

Opposite Cat is so smart that it performs diagnostics and, after making an "Uh-oh" beep, beeps a specific number of times to let you know what's wrong so you can - and I did - make necessary adjustments:

1 beep: Main brushes can't turn
2 beeps: Side brush can't turn
3 beeps: Needs to be emptied
4 beeps: Timmy is stuck down a well

Have you asked it where your gloves are? I think it may have been freeing some house elves.

Hon, if I had house elves I wouldn't have needed Opposite Cat.

Glad I could remind you of something beneficial with my joke. And I HATE shots too. Like I have panic attacks about needles.

i've had the panic attacks, too. unfortunately for me, i got bad genetic code on this one. i got the good genes when it comes to appearance, though, i dont look my age. *G*

i wouldnt say i'm complacent about the shots, but i *can* do it.

It's about 4 beeps from greeting you at the door with a glare wondering where you've been.


8 beeps - need attention now or arrange an appliance revolt starting with the microwave.

I need to figure out what would constitute a treat to feed it.

Well, it's not like you're the only one. The whole swooping_is_bad community has been doing its best to kill me this past week. XD

I read an online manual, and it said that four beeps also carries the subtext of "...and if you ever want to see him again, you'd better start dribbling bacon all over the floors. Eating dust-bunnies and loose change just isn't cutting it anymore."

Be careful, though- if you give in, your Roomba will have a taste for meat.

True, it's a cat. If we wanted a hero, we shoulda gotten a dog.

"Vacuum the living room, Opposite Cat."

The nice thing is that I could just step on its head without losing my atmosphere.

Small robots can have big dreams. I'd only worry if it starts beeping out the tune to Daisy Bell.

No, it just beeps. It's not the heavy duty pet model.

Huh! Never realized that there was meaning to the plaintive beeping. I bet this is one of those things that I would have learned had I read the manual.

A couple of weeks ago I glued big googly eyes on my roomba, cuz...well, why not?? Anyway, before it had eyes it never successfully found it's way to it's docking station when it was finished with a cleaning cycle. I always had to play the game of "where did it end up now" when I got home. Since I gave it eyes though, it's found it's dock every time. I'm not sure if that is the most awesome thing ever, or terribly disturbing.

Ours doesn't have a docking station. We have to plug it in. At least this way we clean it every time we use it.

And, yes, that is kind of creepy.
