On power on the default Act is got from the PicAxe18x.
The current Default Act can be changed anytime by a running Act.
If enabled the Toe Bump Sensors are checked during every step, a toe bump will stop the step and invoke the bump reactions.
A decaying count of toe hurts is maintained and if it passes a threshold then frustration reactions will be done.
For testing sensors press either toe at poweron to disable servos.
