Black lion is go.

Yellow lion is go.

Blue lion is go.

Red Lion is go.

Green lion is go.

Ready to form Voltron! Activate interlocks! Dyna-therms connected. Infra-cells up; mega-thrusters are go! Let's go, Voltron Force!

Blue lion says: We could only get the Hello world program to run if BotClient was running on BOTH the eeePC and the laptop. Unsure why, but hey, it works.

Yellow lion says: Yes, the Hello World program would not operate with a TextChannel alone. We ended up needing a BotClient running on both ends in order to establish a connection.

Green lion says: Today, 1/2/11, our pride was split into three. After lecture, both the blue and yellow lion focused on coding, and focused they were indeed. The hello world program on botclient didn't take much time, but talking to the orc board and running the motors posed a serious problem. Luckily the problem seemed to be common among the other teams and it was resolved once everyone realized that it was the new orc board's default ESTOP connection that was defective. The red lion and myself dealt with connecting the uorc, via soldering, to the various components. Outside of the fact that we soldered directly to our orc board at first, everything turned out functional. Our team leader, the black lion, finished mounting the motor brackets and then left us to fight for ourselves in the jungle that is MASLAB! He eventually joined us again and we finally conglomerated to discuss our strategy to protect the universe and compete in the final competition. Solid first day.
