May 12th

Rolie Polie Olie, our Roomba, hasn't been picking up fluff for a while.  The fan's running, as it's blowing air out the back, but I thought the brushes weren't turning (I can't find a way to test that, as when it's on its back, it won't run), so I took the gearbox apart.  There was a lot of hair in there, but I think one of the pins had slipped out, allowing a cog to freewheel rather than pass the drive to the brushes.  Hopefully that's fixed :o)
