I'd rather EJvW draw some (xkcd-like) stick figure drawings in the page corner so we can just flip the pages really quick to animate the sequences.

This is the same address listed in the report. FIRST Engineering is reading through those emails so your input will be a big help in further testing.
I suppose one should ask what they should expect for a response if they do this?

Do we have any volunteers for illustrator?

The weird part? This is how I actually think about the control system. Engineering is so much easier when you give all the components personalities. Then you just watch the drama unfold and try to fix it.

Field: Robot, I keep telling you to reboot, but there there is nowhere for me to put my message to you.

Result: The robot code locks up. The cRIO's safety mechanisms kick in and prevent the bot from moving. This is actually a good thing. The bad part was that it wasn't able to get the command to reboot and try again.
Thank you very much for the laugh.

From the letter from Jon Dudas -

Quote:
Once again, we want your feedback. FIRST is a community that gets stronger as we work together to solve problems. We are particularly interested in your thoughts on the “Next Steps” section of the report. Your comments and ideas can be sent to 2012frcfeedback@usfirst.org . While we may not be able to respond directly to every e-mail, I guarantee that each will be read and fully considered.

XKCD already has a character that could play the "Individual"... The Man with the Black Hat.

I love this one....
I think it'd be great to have some simple break-down of the report for people. I read it, though a large chunk of it was way over my head- this whole dialogue thing is a great way of explaining it

Someone spotlight this post!!!

You should totally start a webcomic detailing FIRST events in a humorous, yet understanding way.
