The Negotiator

Meet The Negotiator. It is a lead sledge hammer that dwarfs all other one-handed sledge hammers. When something doesn't fit right, you'll generally hear the following:

<The User>"Blast! This jobbie [pronounced "job-e"] is stuck! Someone get me The Negotiator!"

<From someone supervising the job>"SEND IN THE NEGOTIATOR!"

<From deep in the shop>"We're sending someone in to negotiate!"

<The User><WHAM!>"Okay, that got it!"

I nominate the MOE Pit crew as Progessional grade. During the Philadelphia Alliance Regional, both of MOEHawk's wings sustained damage. The right wing was twisted completely backwards rendering it useless, the left wing was moderatly twisted, and we only had 15min before the next match (note.. after 5min in the pits, they started calling us to be in the queue line).

The pit crew was able to completely replace the right wing along with all sub-systems AND bend the left wing back into working order within the 15min and we were able to deploy, grab all three goals, and held ground the entire 1:53 (after latching down) against 2 robots with minimal support from our allie. We won the match with 0qps because the 'enemy alliance' pulled out of the end zone and blocked our allie from getting into their zone.

Go MOE's Pit Crew!

Our software doesn't have bugs, it simply develops random features....


If it falls off, it obviously wasn't important, or it would have been attached better....

if something doesn't fit, I usually just say you have to lie to it a little bit.

It'll find a happy place.

BAH = Big @$$ Holes - Allows for some slop for everthing to fit perfectly every time.

If it doesn't fit you didn't drill the holes big enough.

Looks straight to me.

If there's no tolerance listed, just assume it's a quarter inch or so.


Hey, can we get a list of all these on CD sort of like the spotlight list?

Engineering Sayings

Our team particularly likes to use the phrase PFM - Pure Flipping Magic to describe anything that has anything at all to do with electronics. We also use the "it can be fixed in software" phrase all the time during our fabrication and design.

I really liked Woddie's "Mother nature does not give partial credit" during the kickoff.

In the fab shop we also go with "Slop is good" - at least to an extent. On the same token, if something is too tight to fit together we say that it was machined accurate to the nearest atom. When a part comes out too inaccurate to use we say that it was made with ž inch accuracy on an 1/8 inch part.

We also always result back to the simple K.I.S.S. principal.
