    I encourage everyone to signup ASAP. If you cannot participate, than come down to support the teams. The webpage has been updated with questions and answers from various people along with a basic requirements doc for the end product.

    If anyone is interested in what the hardware looks like, stop down to tonight after 6:30pm for a look. We will also be posting pics and some specs online for anyone who cannot make it.

    Only 2 days until the hacking begins!
