    I'm pondering if the weather is going to be nice enough on Wednesday to get the Lightning up to Michigan.

    You need to hook up with Squirrel (Jim Forbes). He's a robotics coach too!

For most of the students joining the program (and virtually all of the girls) they have never used power tools before, and have limited opportunities in class for hands-on engineering experience, but within a few weeks are building and programming robots.

    Both are valid points....but there us a definite crisis looming over the horizon.... there is a definite shortage of people in the trades...everyone wants the toys of technology, but almost no one wants to get their hands dirty fixing it...I thought it was ridiculous when it was said that we had lost the technology to build battlships, but now, that nightmare may be a reality.... our predecessors would have seen this as a challenge to gladly overcome, but, looking around these days, I just don't know..

    Did the curriculum gods decide that they were no longer going to offer these course because it was inappropriate use of their resources?
    OR
    Did they remove them from the curriculum in respond to low interest from students who don't have interest in learning craftsmanship / artisan skills?

    Went to put the TV corrector bracket on my fi tech tbi and found out it doesn't want to fit. My new cable bracket isn't either. The set screw that keeps it straight doesn't have enough meat on the carb base to do its job. Forgot how hard it is to get the dipstick in after the fact. Getting the lines back in was hard enough. Managed to forget how much fun it was the last time. Better than being at work I guess.
    Put a dab of quicksteel on the bracket. Will see if it helps. Tried a flexible dipstick but it will not go into the transmission. Fits snugly in the old 350. I don't think its a good idea to try to open the hole wider.
