The spreadsheet-based Antlog 2 is still available, as are the paper (PDF) charts. Several people are familiar with Antlog 2 and there are still a few who remember how to use the paper system :) Antlog 3 is also released, documented and as simple as I can make it.
If we're going to run large successful events it requires event organisers to be able to use the tools. I can't always be there and I've put a lot of effort into documenting Antlog so I don't have to. Sadly only Joey, as far as I know, has attempted to run Antlog 3 - and that was in the early days when there were plenty of bugs!

Thanks for having me and my friends down guys. Was good to see a few old faces and meet some new people too. Would love to enter something decent next time if you do something round these parts again.

Thanks to Harry for organising. Looking forward to the video - I appreciate your effort on these.

We had fun - won more fights than previously (often due to a Team Termite failure though :lol: )

It was good to chat to folks again, esp. as we won't be there for 12th Nov.

I'll be making (remaking!) improvements to my bots for next time.

Congrats to Alex, Rory and Antroboteer!

Thanks everyone for a fantastic day; really enjoyed it!

It was great to come third in the main competition with Doktor Power; pity he's not in one piece any more. :D Fortunately the electronics are OK, likewise for ULTIMATE Grabby Crushy Lifty Thing so they shall both return. It was also great to do moderately well in the fleaweight class and annihilators as well.

Robox was awesome but setting it up was slightly annoying and time consuming due to the precision required with its current cam shaft based system. I aim to get setup time down to around 10 seconds or so with my new system which is currently in progress and should make Robox competitive.

Also, thanks for everyone's support throughout the day and especially to Rory and Alex for encouraging me to achieve my first AWS top 3 finish.

Looking forward to the Antweight Open!

The video's up on youtube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzdKvL6mqJw

Looks like a lot of fun, absolutely love the box! My first ant is almost done now so I'll definitely be at the next one.
