Go to Post Re: New to programming, any tips? Join the mechanical team :) IndySam SuperS_5
Go to Post No, but you have access to the most powerful machine tool of all; a telephone. We had zero machining sponsors, now we've probably had over 30 unique shops run parts for us; All we did was ask. AdamHeard Billfred
Go to Post Canada has five regional events now. Canada. Nick Lawrence synth3tk
Go to Post We use the engines of our imagination on the robot all the time. FIRST being an engine of change after all. Mark McLeod Hallry
Go to Post Go with a Big Block. The torque is awesome and you cant beat the sound of a built Big Block with a high lift cam and some open headers. A blower would be a nice addition as well. Good luck getting past the inspector. GBK gracie.
Go to Post Building a robot to survive 2 districts, a Regional, a Region Championship, and World Championships (plus 4 - soon to be 5 - off season events) is a challenge in itself. Jared Russell Hallry

Go to Post I find this ironic. In English class our teacher's tell us how there is symbolism and such, and we don't understand it or think its there. Then FIRSTer's get a Game Hit, and we think EVERYTHING is a symbol and has some significance. akoscielski3 Hallry
Go to Post I am always torn between running a family and running a team... I guess the difficulty is in supporting the team as a whole before the individual...or alongside the individual. MysterE CalTran

Go to Post All screws are not created equal. Al Skierkiewicz Walter Deitzler
Go to Post So your gearbox failed, and your first course of action was to post about it CD? This is an interesting failure recovery plan. :) JVN EricH
Go to Post You never know when the GDC will slide in a rule about any robot with a laser must do a laser light show on the floor of the field or face a 50-point penalty :p. EricH Gregor
Go to Post Never allow your students to get away with an answer that amounts to "because it's better". Have them prove it to the best of their ability, and when they're wrong, ask them to figure out why they're wrong. Tom Line rsisk
Go to Post Engineering rules of thumb don't form the garbage that goes into the making of the robot. They take the garbage of the real world and turn it into more pure, if slightly diluted, data. DampRobot nightpool
Go to Post You know you've been in FIRST way too long when you can remember all those hints... even down to exact wording... and only have to look up the most recent. EricH Kpchem

Go to Post Whether we realize it or not, we've all been touched by the works of Dr. Kamen - through his TED talks, through his research and scores of publications in pediatric oncology, or perhaps more directly through his daughter. What an incredible life, what an incredible legacy. Taylor Libby K
Go to Post Why, yes. I do use Windows, why do you ask? dtengineering DonRotolo
