A status updated on Bad Memories

Basically, Bad Memories is dead as a project. The aluminum frames used for your common 3.5" hard drive varies not just between various models, but sometimes the same model on a different production run. The weight varies, which is sort of important when it's necessary to shave off a mg here or there to meet weight. What was envisioned as a relatively low effort project turned into more problem solving than I would care to make. So, I will carry on with the future bot, Sad Realization which is nothing more than all the same parts, but on a purpose-built base.

During the initial run of construction I ran into a problem where I was massively over weight, but found that stepping down to foam wheels shaved off a few ounces, so that was no longer a deal.
