Well, I'm gonna' be gone the next couple of days.  I'm participating in a Robotics competition, but (strangely enough) I won't have access to the internet.

So, I'll probably be back on Monday...I doubt this will affect any of you, just thought I'd let ya'll know.



Well draw some strips while you are gone! I keep waiting for new ones!


Robotics competition?  Good luck!  Will it be like battlebots?

Good luck dragyn, I'll be rooting for you! =)

Man, Robotics was the one thing I miss from high school. Loved doing that stuff. What are you involved with, B.E.S.T. by any chance? That's what our school did. Anyway, good luck!


I'm back!

@Fes:  I didn't even have time to sketch anything, let alone a comic.  Sorry.

@Griever:  No, our robots weren't allowed to fight.  That would've been expensive, and I doubt the school would have paid for that.  It would've been cool, though.  

@Xepher:  This was the F.I.R.S.T. robotics competition.  Can't say I've heard of B.E.S.T.

@Everyone Else:  Thanks, guys!  I appreciate it.

Anyway, our team ended up ranked 52 of 54.  Not that bad, for a rookie team.  It feels good to be back, though.


What do these acronyms stand for?

BEST is "Boosting engineering, science, and technology." FIRST is "For inspiration and recognition of science and technology."

BEST is older, and a bit smaller scale in budget, but it's more widespread. FIRST does some much larger, bigger-budget robots, and have competitions at places like Epcot. Back when I did BEST, they'd actually sponsor state finalist teams to go on to the FIRST competition, as most teams couldn't afford it on their own


Really?  Cool.  I didn't know that.  I knew that some teams had come from other competitions, just not which other competitions.
