Really creative way to show your robot! The puzzle took a while, but I finally managed to get it sorted out.

It really is a spider Robot!!! It seems like not all the arms are on though…

What’s this? Has a certain collegestudentwithwaytoomuchtimeonhishands managed to figure out the puzzle in about 5 minutes…then managed to take a screenshot of that finished puzzle and save it as a gif file so that if he felt like ruining the suprise, he could pots it on chiefdelphi for all to see? I THINK SO! so…let’s talk ‘compensation’…you need me to keep it off chiefdelphi…and i need money to go to nationals…

Good idea… Why work with the game, when you can hit print screen and move any piece anywhere in paint shop!

I have received word that this is just a decoy robot to distract people from your real robot.

Any truth?

Ok patrick, after recieving your question and doing a through investigation into the matter, i have discovered that the rumor you have heard COMPLETELY TRUE! Yes, i tell you, the rumor is TRUE. The one they have is only a nonworking prototype without any of the external ‘features’. What then, do you ask, does their real robot look like? well, i have managed to take this secret camera shot of the robot to bring you the truth about the WPI lie…
So without further ado, i give you, WPI’s true robot, able to wedge under a bridge, lift a bridge, can’t pick up balls, and we know it can’t do anythign with them if it could, and we are pretty sure it can squirm under a bar when necissary…

Press conference 2/28/01

Jon: I’m here to to answer any questions regarding Spidey

Pat: My sources say that your “Spidergoat” (yea, he did the air quotes cause he’s “cool” :wink: is really a decoy and your real robot is codenamed AlG. Are there any truth to these rumors?

Jon: Let me assure you, that here at Team 190 our chief weapon is surprise…surprise and fear…fear and surprise… Our two weapons are fear and surprise…and ruthless efficiency… Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency…and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope… Our four…no… Amongst our weapons… Amongst our weaponry…are such elements as fear, surprise… I’ll come in again.

Pat: Is there any truth to the rumors that your picture is a decoy to throw us from the path of your robot? Just answer the question, this isn’t a kind of Spanish Inquisition…

Jon: -Jarring Chord- NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition…


Stress must be relieved in any possible manner.
