Go to Post I like to divide checklists like this into "stuff I have to do before applying power" and "stuff I'll find faster by watching it fail". - EricVanWyk [more]

Go to Post Unfortunately, you cannot always tell when some things are jokes on forums, because we only can rely on text and a limited number of smilies. artdutra04 Billfred
Go to Post We really are nerds, aren't we? Eria4044 Billfred
Go to Post I always thought a trained bio mechanical monkey wrapped in aluminum foil would be the best robot, but every year my team says "No Pete, go sit down." BuddyB309 Billfred
Go to Post Ok maybe you cant stop them, but you can utilize that pretty flashing LED pretty darn well! Andy Grady JVN
Go to Post Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration, which is why engineers sometimes smell really bad. Koko Ed kmcclary
Go to Post Sorry [the easy button] does not exist in robotics :D Arkorobotics Billfred
Go to Post Keep arrogant, belittling and misspelled bragging off these boards. Mike Billfred

Go to Post Am I the only one who thinks robots are the main attraction of a regional, and there isn't a need for more distraction? Adam Richards Elgin Clock
Go to Post I don't think finding a way to defend the center goals is un-Gracious Professionalismistic (wow). Sachiel7 Cyberguy34000
Go to Post Patience, grasshopper. They'll get to it. Rick TYler David Guzman
Go to Post Generally, when you do something stupid and unsafe, it isn't the best idea to go and tell thousands of people on CD about it. :rolleyes: Cory Billfred
Go to Post This is the first (and, if this stuff keeps up, last) time FIRST has allowed high-speed projectiles in years. Please use some common sense, people. Madison Billfred
Go to Post I swear, sometimes it seems like FIRST has got a room full of monkeys writing code. Maybe the monkeys should spend less time flinging fecal matter at each other and more time testing the code before posting it :-). Kevin Watson Matt Krass
Go to Post Getting your questions answered is what the big thick manual is for....GO READ. Dorienne Jon K.
Go to Post Scouting wins championships folks...not draft orders. Andy Grady Ian Curtis
Go to Post Now repeat after me: it is just a game. It is just a game. It is just a game... dlavery Billfred
Go to Post Actually, I forsee two [buttons]: Fire and "Thats the opponents target, you dumb robot" devicenull Billfred
Go to Post If 100 people from ChiefDelphi all wrote one full article on something that they are an 'expert' in, FIRSTwiki would be even better. artdutra04 Astronouth7303
Go to Post ... hey which end of the robot faces the wall anyways? Oops.... :rolleyes: dhitchco Stu Bloom
Go to Post [the last period is] a free for all, both goals are turned on, and any robot can go anywhere on the field and score in any goal (although I would recommend scoring in the correct goal, not your opponents :D ) Ryan Foley Billfred
Go to Post Don't worry so much about the wording of the rules but the intent of the rules. Greg Needel Billfred
Go to Post First off, let me suggest that you read the rules! There is an amazing amount of really good information in them. dlavery Billfred
Go to Post I WANT MY POOF BALLS! Cyber Punk 234 Kyle Love
Go to Post With CD down... I wasn't sure what to do with my free time. I almost had a reality check and thought I might go outside. Barry Bonzack Billfred
Go to Post FIRST has stated time and again that the program is not about teaching (they always refer to the I and R in FIRST) Dave Flowerday Karthik
Go to Post No caffine for you! Koko Ed Ian Curtis
Go to Post Sloppy thinking leads to sloppy designs... Joe Johnson JVN
Go to Post the hardest task this year is the same as every other year: getting the engineers out of the crate so you can close it up and the FedEx guy can haul it away! KenWittlief Billfred
Go to Post Once this competition is over, we should donate all of these Poof balls to daycares, elementary schools, neighbors; all the little kids. It would make us look good like, "Here's our Toys for Toddlers gift from us upstanding citizens. And we build robots." atomikitten Jessica Boucher
Go to Post wait a minute...Dave posted a hint here yesterday. but no one has tried to analyze it word by word. has something changed since the kickoff??? jerry w Billfred
Go to Post My brain is about as full as the ChiefDelphi servers have been lately with all the info from the past few days jammed in there. Elgin Clock Shu Song
Go to Post 5:20 - Lots of discussion about how FIRST pretty much wipes out the world of at least one object every year. Andy Grady dragonrulr288

Go to Post While at kickoff I asked Woodie if there were any concerns about missed shots at the center goal hitting the operators or the controls. He handed me a ball and told me to throw it at him as hard as I could... How many times does an opportunity like that come up? Barry Bonzack Billfred
Go to Post All I know is that last year in Philadelphi, our camera locked dead onto MOE (Team 365) and their flourescent green shirts during the matches. They might want to consider what would happen if they get pelted with balls during the autonomous period! :ahh: Greg Marra Ian Curtis
Go to Post What's this about a robot that they speak of? Are we supposed to build one???? ryan_f Cyberguy34000
Go to Post Our team is using a video camera with frame-by-frame analysis to figure out all the characteristics of the foam ball. If the Boeing engineer says it's possible, I'm going to believe him. sciencenerd Billfred
Go to Post I guess I should read the manual. r_towle Billfred
Go to Post I have a feeling that we're about to deprive the world of Poof balls for a while. DCA Fan Michelle Celio

Go to Post quick everyone find everything in the whole world that sells for $125 so we can get an edge on our building 2 days before kick off.....ready...go! Greg Needel Alex Burman
Go to Post Legend has it that Brandon installs the server in a bulletproof case shortly before Kickoff. That way, when the server explodes, the damage to surrounding things is minimal. Billfred RogerR
