Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"OH MY GOD YES YES IT WORKS! DO YOU SEE THAT IT WORKS?! IT WOOOOOORRRRRRKKKKKKSSSSSS!!!!!"

Our lead programmer when, after 5 days of trying to figure out what is going on, made the Axis camera work by using the orange wire. Yep, 5 days of time wasted because they were using the wrong wire.

It was quite the sight.

"Hand me the things so I can put these watchamacallit on the robot. I need a thingie too."

Translation: Hand me the nuts and bolts so I can attach the gearbox to the kitbot. I need a wrench, too.

"Are those huge speakers on the robot?"
"No, they are weights that go on barbells."

"The organization team sure cleaned and organized the tool area nicely. Now if only one of them were here and could tell me where the wrenches are."

Wink Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

The animators and PR/Marketing kids share a room and one of the animators is a computer genius. He knows EVERYTHING there is to know. And he does the website for the team.
Today one of the team members little sister was working with us, although she isn't on the team she might as well be she's here enough... but anyways. on the website he took everything down at about 4 and wrote, "Kelly broke it! " after about twenty minutes he fixed it again. then at about 5 he changed it too "I broke it again ~~Kelly."
Besides telling the world Kelly broke it, he also enjoys insulting most of us on a regular basis, in his spare time.
"Your epically failed, again??"
hahahah o goodness

"A LAZER?!"

A chain started and went through the whole room where everyone said it

"Not those strippers; the good ones!"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Being the lead driver, the programmers dragged me away from the shop just long enough to ask me how I think the controller should be set up...
"I'm thinking this is the left side, that's the right... ...and this is throw grenade, and this is reload."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Programmers trying to understand girls + mentor who doesn't want to waste time with this nonsense = "I'm not gonna LabVIEW up a female for you!"

Students: We've been analyzing it a bit too much.
Mentor: They've gone into analysis paralysis!

-"Hey, where'd the floor go?"

-"the floor is named Zillah."

-"There's this guy at NI who explained our code for us. [...] We should upload our new code, so he can explain that, too"

-"So, when are we quitting?" "5:00"--said at 5:30.

Programming/Website Mentor: Did you just delete the main teleop loop?
Me: Mhmm...
PWM[totally unintentional acronym]: Why?
Me: I like using the control-z function?

[later]

PWM: workin?
me: I? yes, It? not so much.

[edit] oh and my favorite from early on:
Everyone: Does it drive?
Me: Of course it does
Everyone: Wanna show us?
Me: Maybe sometime next month...
