Oh, just now that my RobuDogs are really kicking hehehe...
         From the RoboCup Exercises:

         Well, they still kick to the wrong side :-), but they are 
walking and really kicking :-).
I hope my Naos do not follow this example hehe.

And just to be more than sure, Microsoft Robotics Studio 1.5 Refresh 
- Version:1.5.507.0 - 12/26/2007 will be used, right? No updates or 
changes to Robotics Developer Studio until the RoboCup 2008 (whenever 
it is done hehe), right?
