Woooo busy weekend. So we drove up to Boston Thursday night. We were only a little late due to a mix up with an iPhone GPS app that doesn't know what one way streets are. Getting into our hostel was an... interesting experience. We told them we'd get there really late at night so they left our key under a flower pot on their porch.

The morning was fun. There was a problem using the CSI credit card to pay for our rooms. While Remy handled that myself and the team dealt with crazy blanket lady. She kept trying to tell us about a hotel down the street that only charged $25 a room and you could put as many people as you want in there. We managed to get away from her without much issue though :)

We drove over to Luke Macken's place and walked over to the Town Diner for breakfast. That place was great. I'd highly recommend it if you're in the Boston area. Then we took the bus and subway to OLPC Headquarters for the Python Hackfest. Our videos will be going up on our Youtube account.

Justin and Luke freakin pwned at the hack fest. They managed to get a feature running on our code to display the frame rate and then they tweaked the code to get the frame rate up to 14-15 FPS. So we've officially hit our major goal on this project. At this point we're going to finish packaging the activity this week and we're going to start making this run on other systems after that hopefully.

After the hackfest I jumped on a bus and rode back to Rochester for the Red Barn CCS rockclimbing competition at RIT. That was hella fun. 82 people came out to compete. I got 3rd :D It looks like I'm going to be in the Reporter this week or next. Link when it goes live.
