Disk Drive Contest - iChat
The Disk Drive contest took
place on 9/25/05. There were three crew members of the POM and two crew members of
the Venator available when the contest began, so the POM had to sit one member out
(Diane). The following members took place in the challenge:
- Judd Spitzer
- Scott Bender
- Hazel Valera
- Mark Pickett
NOTE: Unfortunately, just copying
and pasting text from the iChat log loses the "name" attributed to each
text message, but you can at least follow the questions, and see the crew that got
the answer correct.
