Thanks for all your support - the contest has now closed to entries (although they may still be counting page views?), and both entries have scored views in the top 10% of entries.

I don't know how detailed or exhaustive the judging will be - winners will not be notified for at least another 21/2 months!

>fingers crossed<

Hey, you did loads! I emailed the organisers to ask about the page-views, and they were very careful to remind me that page-views would not influence the judges' decisions. No idea why it takes ten weeks, though...

But there was still a prize for pageviews, that's what I was aiming for.

I can't do anything about the judges.....unless....you want me to....*wink,wink*

Sounds good; Oh Great and Powerful Flying Spaghetti Monster, may you in your infinite wisdom turn all Rick Roll links into Kiteman entry links with a mere wave of your Incredible Noodly Appendage. In Pirates name, Ramen!

Thank you. The ROV is just a re-write of my Manta Drive ible, but I'm quite proud of the shotgun idea - if it works, it could be the biggest "good thing" I've ever done.

sometimes I think the biggest good thing I have ever done is to NOT kill anyone with my experiments of my youth ;-)

LOL, it's like those time-travel stories, somebody travels back to the 1930 and kills Hitler, then gets prosecuted for murdering a harmless ex-soldier rather than for saving the millions who didn't die later.

I just remembered that the "new" Twilight Zone episode, "Cradle of Darkness" has a woman go back in time to become nanny to the child thought to become Adolf Hitler. She literally had to sacrifice her own life in taking the life of this child. The bad part is, the maid that was chasing her, took a wench's baby as substitute; the very baby that would become Adolf Hitler, and so history was not changed as expected...

Yes, but there are consequences to inaction as well as action, and they may not be better :-)

I didn't mean don't, just pointing out the irony - you wouldn't be able to plead innocence on the grounds of protecting all those people, because they wouldn't have been (won't be? Weren't?) in danger after your action.

Any suggestions ? I found a length of outside (cheap) paneling in my back room (had forgotten about it since I was unable to physically get back into my tool room for ions now) that will serve as a starting point... *sigh*.

Whilst not being complacent, the ROV is still top of it's section (sixth overall). Thor's Shotgun, however, is trailing quite badly.

I've had another, potentially more useful idea, which will (should my entry pass NASA's rigorous standards) turn up in the Safety and Security category.

Alongside the personal magnetic forcefield designed to end all possible wars - who are these people??

Oh dear, I'm back down to 4th overall. For some reason, that electromagnetically powered engine is getting a lot of traffic - but it's rubbish! Just a hideously-overcomplicated electric motor!

Good grief, I'm glad there are judges involved here.

(Oh, and repeated thanks to all readers and clickers here!)
