Our team doesn't really have any things to help rookies learn how to build stuff, but one thing is for sure on our team, it is ALWAYS Dash's fault.

This is Dash, our driver.

WOW! My brother is majoring in physics at Cal Poly San Luis and he bought my dad a shirt that had that same quote on the back of it. And that quote is very, very true.

Here's Richard Feynman

haha, we had "measure twice, cut once," but at sacramento we had 2 groups of people working on shortening the same piece of metal

basically, i told someone to get to work shortening it, and then started working on it myself with another person. after we were done, while we weren't looking, they shortened it by the same amount.

(btw, thanks BCP for saving us from that little incident)

measure 4 times, cut twice



oh, and our robotics advisor is leaving :sob: and he happens to be a physics teacher, so we gave him a plaque saying "Robotics is like Physics. It has its uses, but that's not why we do it."

this said after two 1/16 inch drill bits were broken by the same person drilling the same hole 2 mins after one another....

"Use the lube, its there for any job..."

Now you had to be there to get the full laugh of it, beacuse we had 1 member walking in as they said that, that person stopped turned around and walked right out, not coming back for 10 mins...

Programming slogans

"Failure is not an option. It comes bundled with the software."

"The only programmers that ever see the dawn are those that have been up all night debugging code..."

"Programmers are always the last ones in the pipeline to touch any new system. Therefore even if their first chance to lay their hands on real hardware came 24 hours before shipment, THEY will be the ones blamed for any system failures, never the mechanical nor electrical crews for holding onto it for so long."

"C code. C code run. Run, darn it, RUN!"

"Keep upgrading your processor's speed to the highest available, so you can reboot Windows faster..."

Cool

some of my own favorite sayings

"if it doesnt work, beat it w/ a hammer. Still doesnt work, get a bigger hammer"

" a sledge hammer shall be know as the percision adjustment tool"

"when in doubt, steel toe"

"If builders built buildings the way programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker that came along would destroy civilization. - Weinberg's Second Law"

" OI's are not plug and play"

And posibbly my favorite quote of all ( which just happens to be completely unrelated)

"i think it all started when i was one, when i fell outta the shoping cart in the grocery store and had to spend the night in the hospital w/ a concussion"- Jesse James

Talking Re: Engineering slogans

OK...I'm the programmer for my team, and the REST of the team's favorite slogan is...

It's a programming problem.

My pay back for them...(which I'm usually right)...is by saying...

It's a wiring problem.

We were working on a switch yesterday, and I said this and it turned out to be true!
