Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

An interesting long read on how the DARPA Off Road Robotics race turned out.

Here are a couple of extracts

"the only team with a realistic shot at the million-dollar prize?had ended the race at mile 7.4"

"Traversing less than six percent of the course may not sound like a grand result, but it should be noted that the four lead bots did get through the first section of the course, a flat looping dirt road that passed through four fence-gate openings, each only about 12 feet wide."

Page 4 had an interesting bit about a homegrown Linux driven dune buggy
