Re: pic: Andy comes to Canada.

I personally think it's obvious what's on his mind. He's plotting world domination, and it begins with Canada. He just saw part 1 of his plan go through, and he's holding back an evil cackle, or bwahahahaha, or what have you.

Re: pic: Andy comes to Canada.

Just remember he was at the Battlebots event the day before and was hoping to see a robot explode or something and was thinking abotu how much cooler the game would've been with massive hammers in the corners to defend the goals there.

Re: pic: Andy comes to Canada.

OK, OK...

Mark Koors and I made a road trip this past weekend. Our main goal was to visit the BattleBots competition in Rochester to seek new customers for our AndyMark business. We demonstrated some products and made some great contacts. Also, we supported the Tetracide team as they competed.

Along the way, we stopped in at Toronto on Friday to see some friends and help setup for the Wonderland FIRST competition.

Along this trek, we discovered these things:

1. It's only an 8 hour drive from Kokomo to Toronto.
2. Crossing over to Canada and getting back is fairly easy, especially at the crossing points of Port Huron, MI and Niagra, Ont.-NY.
3. More teams need to attend the Wonderland off-season event. It is a great place to host a FIRST competition.
4. Hotel rates in Toronto are inexpensive.
5. Dinosaur BBQ in Rochester is excellent.
6. The X-Cats (team 191) have an awesome shop.
7. We have some new friends in the Rochester area.
8. FIRST is well-respected among Battlebots competitors.
9. Battlebots is an exciting, fun competition to watch.
10. A good spinner robot can do a massive amount of damage to its opposing robot.

As for the "FIRST Supplier Summit", it was a meeting among possible suppliers to FIRST which took place back in August. Essentially, it was a meeting where FIRST challenged, "what can you put in the Kit for free?"

Re: pic: Andy comes to Canada.

Obviously, Andy is attempting not to laugh at Karthik's rediculous story about a cab ride ...

Yup ... he's still smirking even though that story was told way back in April in the hotel bar in Atlanta ... (at least that was the first time I heard it) ...

we were very scared of the spinners, just never knew how harsh they are. that's why i have an amazing idea for a middleweight spinner.

I shall see if i can locate the video of a featherweight spinner (its called vortex or something ) Against a printer, most of the bits landed on the roof of a building.

Andy, Mark - a basic business hint.

Giving stuff away for free does not generate a lot of profit.
