FYI, I'm looking for a cheap / free motorized wheelchair (i.e. like the base of Alan's robot) that I can cannibalize for a slightly different project. Let me know if you know of any!

I downloaded Karateka for my iPhone. The breasts are just as fictional as I remembered but my skills definitely arenít what they used to be.

Today we got postcards from Hawaii and Pennsylvania. Both were requested weeks after Adams, MA. Is anyone surprised?

I should not be left unattended.
There's a new section to show honors received by Winter Campers. There are a bunch missing I'm sure. Take a look and make suggestions for awards I should add and who has earned them (including you).
The goal, from my standpoint, is to establish that Winter Camp is more than just Winter Camp and has a reach beyond our chapter and the Order of the Arrow.
It's in the reference section.

I've started adding member awards to the site. Right now, you can see the data in the Encyclopedia WinterCampica. Please take a look and let me know if I'm missing any of our information (I almost certainly am).
I'm adding this thinking ahead to Winter Camp L when we may want to have a program showing some of the impact of Winter Camp participants on the rest of the world, if that makes sense. I figure starting now is a good choice.

Yeah... when I read my old code is a mix of cringe and "Wait... this works?!?..... How??"

Working on documenting how parts of the Winter Camp site work. The worst part is probably trying to stay focused on that.
As you look at things you realize they could be improved and it's tempting to stop documenting the as-is and jump into fixing/improving things.
The other bad part is realizing how stupid you were when you created the initial design of some of these things.

We're missing two states from our postcard project which is actually pretty good. Today I discovered there's an Acosta, PA which would get us another camper and state if they reply.
Hawaii is harder. Most of the names are Hawaiian and so no campers share them. It would probably be easier to recruit someone with a polynesian name than to find a city.
What does anyone think of using Haiku, HI to get our last state?

So for those keeping score at home, I successfully appealed my disability case and became eligible for benefits in November. During Winter Camp, I got a call that they needed a copy of my I-551 form (my green card).
On January 2, I was there with my card and they took a copy and made some notes.
I still haven't received any benefits. There appears to be some bureaucratic snafu.

Oops, tried to call checker-thewall.py but it was actually named checker-wall.py Works when triggered manually, though. I may have to adjust this script somewhat since on this page old messages scroll onto a next page instead of down the page like on the planning meeting one.
Happy Canada Day, eh!

I was unfamiliar with the crisper sleeve.
It didn't really work that well and it took a lot of my cheese with it.
