Just when you think you sufficiently documented a past project, or
thought you could get away with not declaring magic numbers...
The new head design issued last year has changed from the previous heads
to the extent that I need to go back to that spreadsheet to
re-proportion the entire robot. I've reacquainted myself with both the
SVG file and the spreadsheet, added comments <!-- --> to the SVG file,
and created identifiers in androidrobot.inc for most of the magic
numbers that correspond to the spreadsheet numbers. But I've run into a
strange snag: two of the numbers in the spreadsheet do not show up in
the relevant macro, and the two would-be corresponding numbers in the
macro do not show up in the spreadsheet!
I will have to figure out where my head was 5 years ago, and how those
two macro numbers relate to the spreadsheet.
