Re: Test Set Exchange Update

I'm going to conclude with my final thoughts that SOINC should step in and require all invitationals register with SOINC and release tests and keys promptly to centralize these resources. The recent addition of "Invitational Ruleset" has been a foray into this but I hope it becomes more u...

Re: Circuit Lab B/C

Although I know this is incorrect, during the competition we ended up putting the voltmeter in series with the various resistors. When put into parallel we got a reading of 0V but got positive values when in series... does anyone know why this would be the case? Assuming you connected everything as...

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

ARG! I managed to break my new glass teapot in less than a month... (I lost control while removing a brush from the spout and hit it against the edge of the sink). I'm mourning it emotionally far more than the $20 replacement cost...

Re: Double Posting Encouraged!!!!!!!

This falls into the too spammy to be allowed category of posting "games". Locked. Rule of thumb: posts in a posting game should require some degree of effort.

Re: How Could We Improve Scioly.org?

Is it just me or do other people get the ERROR screen at times? Are you talking about roughly an hour ago or at other times? The one an hour ago was due to an issue against which I already took action. That would be during the past 24 hours. It was at its worst from 8am CT to 6pm CT. Most likely du...

Re: The Union of Safety for SciOly Engineers.

8. I know this is a popular thing to do, but I'll say it anyways: don't overcharge your LiPo batteries! It's going to be a bad day if you have to explain to your parents how the house burned down or how you or a team member ended up in the hospital. Burning lithium and chemical fires are no joke. B...
