Re: Ant Freeze 5 - 3rd Feb 2018 NEW DATE

Yeah, I've had the same problems as well unfortunately >_< all an accessory to the main experience though - I'll be here and looking forward to seeing everyone again! I've been too busy with work to get any actual ants working, but I've rustled up a flea which will probably not last very long but be...

Re: Antweight World Series 53 - University of Southampton

All settled in at the hotel (after a minor fire alarm scare!) and very much looking forward to tomorrow - it's been far too long and I want to catch up with people :) Jigsaw is ready, and Chickens From Outer Space just needs, erm, chickens (so all of it really), but nothing that can't be fixed. Me a...

Re: scottish borders ant challenge..thingy

I'd be interested - as events go this would be almost local for us! My only concern would be ease of access by railway as I don't have a car - any advice for us vehicleless plebs?

*makes note to bring all his power supplies along to event so he can have a sticker*

What is the limit, if you don't mind me asking? I'm sure it'll be able to accommodate everyone attending but I don't want to assume and be left hanging outside because I got delayed turning up ^^;;

Re: Antweight World Series 53 - University of Southampton

*coughs from accumulation of dust on account* I'm going to be here! :D And I've signed up, which I remembered to do, and then I got quite ill this weekend so I'll try and turn up with the amount of robots I signed up. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone though :) Me and Tracy'll be making ...

Re: Ant Freeze 4 - Sign Up & details

Aaaand back home! Many thanks to John and Mel from the venue for hosting a great event; it was a lot of fun and I would love to go back again. My only regret is we didn't get to try the new games, but any event where I get to make friends with a bearded dragon is a good one :) Thankyou to everyone e...

Re: Ant Freeze 4 - Sign Up & details

Belatedly signed up - just bringing Jigsaw this time. I had a really bad case of the flu which has precluded me having anything else ready :( Really looking forward to seeing everyone again though. Hope the games are as good as I'm imagining!

Re: Antweight open 12th November 2016

You're welcome, glad you enjoyed it :) I definitely did, many thanks to Hogi and family for being brilliant as always. It was a lovely relaxed event and good to see everyone and talk robots and generally have lots and lots of fun! Well done to Pete for winning the main competition - Anticyclone gets...

It's all okay - managed to sort something out. Andy (Userfriendly) to the rescue :) Just getting packed now, the very best of luck to everyone today. Looking forward to seeing you all!

Re: Antweight World Series 51 - Peasedown St. John, 29th October 2016

Apologies for the short notice (I have been terrible at getting myself organised this week >_<): Can anyone give me and Tracy a lift to/from the venue from Bath before and after the AWS? We'll be at the city centre travelodge, hopefully someone else is going that way and it's not too much of a detou...

Re: Antweight World Series 51 - Peasedown St. John, 29th October 2016

Have signed up J64 at least - I don't think I'll be able to have much else seriously done in time, although something may materialise from the collection of Chinese/Vanuatuan/otherwise Far Eastern parts on my bench for fun. Will sort out travel arrangements soon - wondering if anyone else is also ma...

Re: Antweight World Series 51 - Peasedown St. John, 29th October 2016

I think I should be able to make this - it's very short notice :( but managed to beg an afternoon off work to travel down. As Bath is Tears For Fears country I'll see if I can make a small weekend pilgrimage out of it!

Team Picus Telerobotics 2016 - Zantetsuken

Hiya everyone, I'm Joey. I've been around for quite a while, but I hope you'll allow me to have a build diary anyway. :) The last fleaweight I had fighting was Catatonia , which was quite ramshackle and never quite went in a straight line but was an awful lot of fun, especially in the rarefied envir...
