I was going through the old e-mails here and I found this.  I didn't know if I
had downloaded this bone thing or not. I did!, in 2012. I've been playing with
robots for that long?! I had decided to make androids only. I set it up a system
that'll let you adjust bone length. But soon just stuck with one set of bone
lengths. I'm really into animation so I created another system that will take
poses files and with a little effort make animated robots. I'm Now working on a
windows program that will take some of that effort out of making that animation.

Have Fun!!
