    Hey, thanks for listing EMRR on your links.. the SNAP feature is a bit dated, but cool.

    Have you seen our new 2007 EMRR Challenge… it has a garbage component which I believe was your suggestion through a feedback to EMRR! Thanks for the idea… Now go participate and WIN!

    Where is template for air rocket in Make 15?
    It sure isn’t obvious from your site.

  3. I thought it was interesting that your ICEE TRANSPORT looks a lot like the Semroc TAO ZERO.
    So, which one came first?
    As always, great website.
