We're not behind, the rest of the world is ahead! Yeah. Thats it.

Not only are we two weeks behind schedule on the robot, but I am personally 112 hours behind on sleep.

Oh boy... It's going to be those late nights again. Hrm... we have a member who works at a Starbucks and she's been worrying about not showing up to meeings and flaking due to work. Maybe she can make up for it

Let's just say that we're moving along at a fairly consistant pace. Now what pace that is, I'm not saying

The robot is very much on schedule but our animation is lagging behind quite a bit.

I hear ya - but we have until the 13th to have EVERYTHING built. Our team's open house is that day, we are going to a Green Bay news station to show off and we have our scrimmage two days after. On a positive note, our animation is done ...

I think many aniamtion teams are behind. I have a sneaking suspicion that there is going to be a record low number of animation submitions this year. After all, they are losing three weeks of time and alot of teams couldn't get done with that much time to do it!

We're ahead, but our robot is simple

I am now working with a new team, 1062 in Celebration, Florida, and the "bolt-together" drive train has been a very good thing for us. Since we are a first year team, we have no previous years' robots to drive, so we just assembled a very simple machine so our potential drivers could start practicing.

If you build simple, you can avoid being "behind," but you are compromising your capabilities. The bolt-together drive train works, but it will put as at a major disadvantage compared to what my old team, TechnoKats, and others will come up with. Next year, Team 1062 will have something more exotic, but we may well be behind where we'd like to be three weeks after kickoff.

Our design is entirely complete. We're just waiting on parts to come in from points all around the globe.

Right now, we have about 16% of our robot parts in. More today. And tomorrow. And the next day.

Hopefully we'll get this thing moving in the next 7 days.

It's all relative....

Hey, if the robot is ready to roll by the LAST practice session, then you're right on time.
REMINDER - 9TH UPDATE......
NO SWAPPING PRACTICE SESSIONS WITH OTHER TEAMS!!!!!!!

Behind?

Well, drivetrain wise we are about finished, actually we had it driving last week. It's a temporary setup, as soon as the rest of the pieces come in it will take an hour to complete (being pesimistic even!). Our arms are a bit behind in the actual building, but we could possibly finished them by tomorrow night if we tried really really hard. . . . . All in all we should have a complete robot in 4 days, ready to ship. So I'd say we are ahead. w00t!
