Rumor has it that Blue will be offering one of his own computers (a Robic 505 stopwatch) as another prize in the raffle!

Tom, That is outstanding of you to offer up a full Silkrip ORR setup for such a worthy cause! You rock man... And since you rightly mentioned that some may not like having HAL run the race for them, I'm prepared to help the cause too. A while back, Robic discontinued the model SC505 stopwatch with 1/1000th of second readout and went to 1/100th second readout.

Dave, great idea on the competition; the nap notion not so much. You give the Silkrip ORR Computer (aka HAL) too much credit. I am constantly amazed at those of you (like Blue and Charlie and many others) who can compete at such a high level with just a stopwatch. But it still takes a lot of techie skill to use a computer, although Charlie has suggested the next logical step is to connect the infernal gadget to the accelerator pedal...

2001: A Space Odyssey The ship's on-board computer was HAL (the HAL 9000), and appeared to turn violent against the crew members in the second half of the film, in order to safeguard it's primary mission. Or something like that. Open the Pod bay doors HAL. I'm sorry Dave, I can't do that. Asa
