  1. Hi there, Today I made the happy discovery that deep in a cupboard in the tech department of the school i teach in is a whole load of Dacta control labs, 9751. However there is no software, does anyone know where I can download it from? Or is there a way to use it without the software? Cheers D

    Dacta Control Lab Software

    I'm really pleased that a post I made 8 years ago is still going strong and hopefully helping some people out. I don't work at the same school anymore as I did back then so don't have access to all the gear, I so should have taken it with me, I bet it's either sitting in a cupboard gathering dust or has been thrown out!
  3. I've just borrowed a Minstorms set with the intention of running a very basic backwards and forwards train. The idea was that it would run to one end of the line, stop for a 20secs then run to the opposite end of the line where it would dump its load (by running a different motor) and run back. I have the converter cable to enable me to plug my train motor into the EV3, I was planning on using IR sensor at the front and back of the train to know when I'd reached the wall. Unfortunately my inexperience with this programming is meaning that this is no as easy to get to work as I expected can anyone please give any guidance as to how to program this to work. Thanks

    Dacta Control Lab Software

    I don't think I ever found instructions I just made it up as I went along, unfortunately I've moved schools since then so don't have access to any of it anymore :( I'd hate to think that they may have binned it all now, we had great fun playing very basic Lego Robot Wars with it all :)

    How Many Have Completed CMF Series?

    I have every figure from series 1-13 (I'll be getting 14 when available locally, maybe this weekend as we'll be in Legoland) I also have Team GB (3sets) both Simpsons series & TLM. I have the Toy Soldier so I guess the only one I'm missing really is Mr Gold, although I do have a custom so that I can pretend I'm complete :) D

    Noooo! Bay window campers have wheels on the front, but you can't spoil the lines of a splitty with a spare wheel, its just wrong! :-) Nicely done job though ;-) D

    Decal Wish List

    Hi a bit of a request, I was wondering if anyone had got an image of the logos for the two CMFs Baseball teams, I wanted to do a display and print off the team Logos but I can't find them online anywhere and don't have the skills myself to do them. Many Thanks D Thanks for the advice Luxor V

    Stolen figs

    Did you ask in the store about the figures? Some stores take them out and put the away safely to stop people stealing them, so they may all have been in a draw behind the cash desk. D

    A ___ of LEGO minfigures.

    My first thought was clutch, but you have ruled that one out ( Im fairly sure there are others that apply to more than one animal)

    UK Sales

    The Tesco deal is great because currently if you spend your clubcard points on days out vouchers £2 of points is worth £10 in days out vouchers, so 1000 points is worth £50 of vouchers, which equates to free Lego :-) D

    BAM kiosk alternatives?

    So you want to replace children finding the parts they want by digging around in tubs of Lego to create their chosen figures, with ticking boxes and being handed completed figures packaged in a box. I think not!

    MOC: Snack Bar - an updated #675

    This was always one of my favourite sets growing up, and i still have it built in my 'Lego Shed' I love this modern version great work. D Rather than put a 16x32 behind the snack bar couldn't you put one in front so it is set back from the road a bit allowing tables etc in front. I also see a phone box and post box in the little paved area, that seems quite typical in town centers D

    Favorite childhood theme?

    Castle all the way. The Black Falcons were my good guys often teaming up with the Forestmen. I had every castle set at one point and still own them all now. D

    LEGOLAND Windsor Discussion & Photos

    The pick a brick wall is in the same building as Scarab Bouncers and the exit of Laser Raiders but when we were there over Easter it only had very basic pieces in it. There is a discount shop above the Star Wars mainland which is usually worth a visit to see if they have any bargains. We are annual pass holders so make the 90min journey fairly regularly with our 4yr old and 2yr olds there is plenty to keep them happy and if you choose your rides carefully you don't usually have to queue too long.
  25. I think it is polite to give credit or perhaps more accurately state where you saw this used which inspired you to do the same. You didn't see whoever first came up with it and even if the moc you saw had credited the original that still wouldn't have been the moc that inspired you, the new one would have been! D
