<Sly> of friendSlicer is pushing it
... and spent 3 hours trying out heaps of code to amplify the sound only to realise it helps to turn the volume up on the mic. friendSlicer's still not doing what the team want it to and there's no way to check whether the network connection element will work until they have real data from participants' tags tomorrow.
Tiredness ★★★★★★★★ (last year was 11/10)
Bastiaan of IkTrek is quietly confident
... and is still working on every element of IkTrek, electronics, software, hardware, and needs to sort out the hard part, the integration of components.
Edwin of Ik-a-Sketch is poised
... and has the drawing contraption in place ready to be wired up and may do a little more soldering to the proto board.
Stress ★★★★★★★ (rising to 11/10 by 2am)
Eric of friendSlicer is levelheaded
... and is going to have to get here early tomorrow to at least get a prototype working. There's a whole bunch of stuff still to do, but it's not worth stressing over.
Tijmen of Ik-Gnome is an eager beaver
... and is putting legs on the structure in a last minute change to suit the Gashouder. There's a lot to do and three guys are 'coding their assess off' inside.
Axel of IkWin is totally chilled
... and says it's all working just fine as it was developed last year, although when he gives me a demonstration, the lift goes up but doesn't come down. Some minor tinkering then.
Tiredness (last year 9/10)
Stress ★★ (last year 8/10)
Mark of IkSpeel is swaggering
... and merely has to record some sound samples and fix a few AnyMeta hook-ups.
Dan of Breaking the frame is somnolent
... and is trying to stay awake and offer support as the installation is all wired up.
Ubi of Dial Now is unruffled
... as he's used to pulling all-nighters, and running his own business has left him immune to stress. He's soldering away on 4 hours sleep, fresh as a daisy, and just hopes his team finishes coding in time.
Dirk of Network Knockout is chirpy
... and is relatively calm now after his stress levels peaked at 20/10 when his USBs burnt this afternoon. He's running on 4 1/2 hours sleep.
