I know that the font you used in the NXT-G 1.1 picture is a standard font, but since it is not one that is in NXT-G 1.1, can you please change it?
It is the same color and font that iLegoWorld uses, and I feel that you have copied it.
If you would like to email me please use the contact form on iLegoWorld.
There are better ways to get your website noticed Scotty than telling our friends at The NXT STEP that they're stealin' your font. Get over it.

Okay, everyone take a deep breath... let's calm the situation.
Scotty, the graphic you see isn't ours - we're just sharing a post from motocube.com (Jim G.'s site). It doesn't look like he intentionally took your font or color... Jim's a good blogger and I'm sure it's just coincidence.
Jake, Dave, Anonymous - thanks for coming to our defense. Everything is cool.
Scotty, I checked your web site and the graphic and/or font doesn't match the graphic that Jim G and I used.
Nevertheless, Fay will make another generic graphic for this same post. It'll be up in a couple of minutes.
And if I catch anyone copying it, I'll sue. (Just kidding!!)
"I called LEGO Education and asked if this upgrade worked on the retail kit. They weren't certain but felt that it would not and that perhaps retail division had it's own upgrade planned. They then sent me to LEGO Consumer resources. I spoke w/ someone in software issues. He said that he supports 1.1 and since he is at LEGO REtail, the upgrade must work on the retail kit. Sort of a round about way to say that yes the NXT-G 1.1 works on the retail kit but he seemed a bit confused. If someone finds out something different, please post."
I am NOT trying to get noticed by starting a flame fight.
Lego(TM), can not stop me from having my website, I in no way clam that I am Lego, or officially represent Lego in any way!
I only wanted my comment to be a friendly comment, just saying that so people do not get mixed up you should remove or change the picture.
I hope you have taken no offence.
All the best,
Edit - Thanks for changing the picture! yeah, the color is different... I guess that's what I get for being lazy... :) See you around!
ps: delete this msg too so people don't ask about what was deleted.
I very strongly suspect that the 1.1 will end up being on the retail as well as educational side of the equation. The additions and improvements to the environment are basic, and the only difference between the retail and educational version is some of the content plugged into them (different pre-programed robot plans, and a slightly different set of basic blocks which can be added later in any case). I do not know when a "retail version" would be availble, but I'm 95% certain it would be exactly the same editor, just slightly different content.
I would get the education upgrade to 1.1. If you really like Spike and Alpha Rex you could make copies of the files before unloading the V1.0 software. I think the robot academy stuff that comes with the educational version is far superior.
Note that if you are running 1.0 you will also need to download and install the dynamic block patch to allow you to import blocks (on 1.1 I *think* this is already built-in, and very nicely done actually).
I don't remember whwere you can download copies of the robot center content from... anyone?
I must stress that 1.1 OVERWRITES the NXT Edu installation, unlike the case reported with the Retail upgrade. My guess is that the Edu upgrade just writes in the Edu original directory, and the retail upgrade (when available) will overwrite the retail directory. On the other hand, it preserved my 1.0 expansions, like block import/export and installed external blocks, remove bad wire, etc. I can insert external blocks in a program. However I have not tested the external blocks to see if they compile/work in the in the new version.
A nice feature that I just noticed is that it remembers the palette between restarts, so if you ended up using the complete palette, it does not get you back to the common palette, as 1.0 used to do (I think).
I did a few simlpe programs, but I can't tell any difference. Next I'll try line following and see what happens.
yeah, and they let them have firstname.lastname@example.org, which I did not know about at the time I started my site...
if you see il@goworld any where let me know, i must "remove it"...
and, yeah you thought it was an easy way of get rid of il@goworld, i'll be back...
It's probably better to have LEGO ask you now than face any kind of legal action down the road. I've faced this issue myself before, and I certainly understand LEGO's position now - they have a name, a brand, and various products to protect, so don't take it personally.
Pick a new domain name and let us know when you're back up and where we can find your resources.
please emal me
