Sorry that you found the heat unbearable. I agree it was toasty, but in
defense of Lulu, it was nowhere near 95. Maybe mid 80s, and humid, but it
wasn't that bad. I've been here all day and survived just fine.
I can't comment on the Mindstorms exhibit, but the stuff I can see from
the TriLUG booth (robotics, unreal tournament, etc.) is certainly what it
was billed as. They're currently having a "battlebots" style contest in
the robotics area -- kinda cool.
