TF101 chapter 3 suggestion

In section 3.3 of the TF101 course you have

If you execute the echo command, you should get something similar to this. Be careful with the data overflow because it’s a lot of data published very fast:

Seems like this would be a good opportunity to reinforce something that I think was taught in the basics course, to use the -n option to avoid too much data. So, as an example, the command could be:

rostopic echo -n2 /pi_robot/joint_states

That way you avoid being overwhelmed with data. Just a suggestion.

PS - if there is a different place/way you’d like this kind of feedback, please let me know.
