    Anyone have any suggestions for cutting down the noise that the jaw servo makes in talking skulls? When I slow the speed down a bit on the other servos in my 3-axis skull they are much quieter, but if I slow down the jaw servo I figure it won't be sinked up well.

    This year I finally got the skulls all wired up via Cat 5, with 20' runs. It was a fun project and I learned a LOT. This will be set up in the yard with the computer and SSC32 board safe on the front porch. The new routine goes about 10 minutes, with chatter and a couple of songs. The vocals are...
