comment How to unplug black friction pin connectors
My preferred method is the last one, but instead of using a Technic brick, I use a half width beam. The stick blocks the pin as it does with the full width brick, but once the stick is removed, the pin is very easy to pull out from the beam.

comment Can anyone explain the transformation information within a Lego Digital Designer LXF file?
"Brick width is 0.8, brick height is 0.96 and plate height 0.32.": These are dimensions of bricks in centimeters...

comment Installing Linux on my NXT
And the USB port is a slave type one, not a host, so you can't connect a device (printer) to NXT.

comment Turn a tank a specific number of degrees
As dfrevert said, tracks MUST slip to turn, it's impossible otherwise. The IR sensor returns an indication of the difference of illumination received by the two internal receivers, this is by no way an angle. Same of thing when used as a distance sensor, it gives an indication based on strength of IR echoed to the sensor, so it is not linear and repends on reflectivity of target.

comment Can you identify this model of a yellow truck?
From the size and style of the model, I felt it could be a model from one universal box. A quick browse in the proper section of peeron database gave the answer... Other useful databases are Brickset brickset.com (among other things it lists official building instructions from modern sets) and Bricklink bricklink.com. Old building instructions are available here too: brickfactory.info
