Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

...when you're so used to having safety glasses on that you get all the way home before you realize you never took them off.
...when you realize since you joined your FIRST team you have recorded every practice and match your robot has been in, on season or off.

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

I can't sleep... I'm waiting for kickoff so I am browsing the forums when no one is posting anything. Oh can't wait to wake up at 5am on Monday for morning lift...

Oh wait! Kickoff is in another day! Oh darn it

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

- you have http://frc.heroku.com/ 24/7 open since it was up.

- when you are counting the secounds to the kickoff months ago XD

- looking on andymark's every day.

- you get home after the paper arrives.

- your teachers hate you ()

- you have a bag filled with Souvenirs from first competitions.

- when your friends see you early for school and ask when did you arrive and you answer "yesterday, i think".

- when you lose you sense of taste from the food that your mentor ordered.

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

... friends come up to you and ask, "how much time left until kickoff?"
... you realize that you are waiting for something that takes up hours per day of your life and yet you are more antsy then when school is out.
... you have three copies of the encrypted pdf manual.
... when your phone background is a picture from setting up a previous match.
... when you go to bed at one because you are on chief delphi and arent tired because you are excited for the kickoff at the end of the week.

Thanks FIRST for engulfing my life.

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

By request....................



'Twas the night before Kick-off, we’ll call it Kick-off Eve,
No team knew what challenge tomorrow conceived.

The guesses were many but none were for sure,
The enthusiasm was high and the excitement was pure.

The students were restless as they went to bed,
While visions of robots raced through their heads.


Flowers knew the challenge along with Kamen,
Tomorrow the rest of us would find out, AMEN.


The long awaited answer to what we would do,
For the next six weeks would soon come true.

Our mentors and team have been working for weeks,
Teaching our CNC group how to produce the many tweaks.

Showing our mechanics how holes get tapped,
Instructing our controls team on not getting zapped.

Our programmers were contemplating autonomous control,
While our drivers thought about their manual role.

Our challenge I’m sure which will be first rate,
And in just six weeks it’ll get stuck in a crate.


Off to our first regional for 2011,
To a competition that will be just like heaven.

There’s work ahead building our robot and crate,
As we work with the manual and “daily” update.

And for tomorrow, make sure you’re there at eight.


Weighing our robot and counting each pound,
If it’s too heavy, more holes will be found.

We brainstorm, plan and build what a feat,
While having fun 'til our robots’ complete.

There are awards available, very many we knew,
We all hoped we would end up with one, maybe two.

The awards presented by FIRST, our mentor he read,
As thoughts for winning them began to be said.


There’s Chairman’ s and Quality and Safety and Visualization,
There’s Inventor and Spirit and Website and Innovation.

Tomorrow won’t come soon enough for Team 2062,
We’re always looking for better things to do.


A short time from now received by satellite dish,
Will come the answer to each teams wish.


As we get prepared for another busy build season,
We say to all teams for all the right reasons.


And it needs to be said and comes from the gut,
“Gracious Professionalism to all and to all Good Luck “

You have spent all of this calendar year designing prototype software for next year. (flowcharts are not code, only algorithm design.)
