Don't feel bad for us - the well engineered extenders were much more reliable and difficult to stop than the slapped-on tape measures.
In the finals of the Archimedes division, 25 and 118 both relied on their mini-bots to win it for them, and both mini-bots came through like champs. I wouldn't want to trust the division championship to a flimsy tape measure.
