Re: how many events?

4, with 3 building events. I always tell myself not to do more than 1 building, but they're too much fun to not do them

Re: 1000 Ways to Get Kicked Out of Walmart

156. Load Linux onto all the demo computers (always have wanted to try that, but probably never will)
157. Switch the mouses between two computers (have done that)
158. Kill explorer.exe

Re: Sounds of Music B

I've been playing violin and other string instruments for years, and have to wonder how hard a violin is to make. It looks like it would be quite complicated, but then again I've never tried. Anyone tried this and have advice?

Re: Mousetrap Vehicle B

I did this event last year, and the biggest problem we ran into were with axles and wheels. What worked for you guys in the past?

Re: General Mission Possible

My group and I did pretty well at regionals with this event (5th), but are not getting a lot of possible points because it runs too fast, only 7 or 8 seconds. Any ideas on how to slow it down before states? use a rack and pinion. We have made ours adjustable so it can take up to 1 and a half minute...

Re: Optics B/C

Does anyone know any good links to study guides or such for bright line and absorption spectrum? That's the part of the test that I understand the least.

Re: Mousetrap Vehicle B

How are you attaching the wheels (CD's in our case) to the axles?
