Will just challenged me. For this event, none of my robots' names can be more than 4 characters long *cries*

Why not name the robots after roboteers, then? You could have Dave, Gary, Andy, Jim, Pete, etc.

As a heads-up, I'm most likely going to be putting myself forward to host AWS39. Just waiting on confirmation and pricing of the venue, but shouldn't be any issues. Just wanted to get my offer in early because I've got some cool plans ^^.

Sounds good Scott, but there is a (slim) possibility that AWS39 will be in Germany.

Yeah, they were talking about maybe doing it to tie in with an existing event in Germany. However I very much doubt I'd be able to go to that, and a lot of the guys on here certainly wouldn't be able to, so I'd be up for planning another one here personally, though obviously, if enough people can travel over to Germany, then that should be the first choice. Will has already booked to host AWS40 as well, lol, so there may be a bit of a wait if the German one does go ahead!

Haz, I already used up this joke with 10 Characters or Less a couple of AWSs ago. Doing it twice would be a bit limp :D

i think goti shows that you can funk the system using only 4 characters, you just have to..... do..... something i don't know :roll:

Exactly 5 weeks to go til this. Either going to be a quiet one, or the sign up sheet will explode with entries soon. My money is on the latter. As usual, I build a bot that I think "hey, that's not bad! Maybe I'll do ok this time!" then see what everyone is building as competition and think "oh. Nevermind." :lol:

I should be coming but will wait to sign up until I can be sure that I can make it and I know what ants I'll be bringing (only got 1 working one at the moment) needless to say there will be a couple of spinny things involved :)
