Instructables Robot Major Malfunction Answered

A couple of days ago, the Instructables Robot had a major malfunction! It had dutifully sent a couple hundred thousand welcome notices, but at the 222,222th message, just starting smoking and foaming at the mouth. It crashed all the servers (on a newsletter day no less!) and just started going berserk. Fortunately, its power supply overheated, slowing it down, and we were able to toss a net over it stopping the carnage.

For the time being we hacked together a replacement robot and linked the original Instructables Robot's profile to Robot 2.0. So don't be surprised if you see the new robot around. Our plans were pretty good, but there must be a spark of sentience as the new robot has slightly different tastes.

Anyone have ideas as to what happened? We're still not certain where the robot actually came from, but maybe that would help provide some clues?

Gee, I never thought they would feel that power surge reported when I having my heart worked on a few days ago. The lights dimmed 3 times and totally went out once :-)

I know, on my last day there, I had a nurse actually chase me down the hall (my gown had come open in the back, and I guess I was either scaring other patients or grossing them out) :-)
