i agree with jerrys frustration.
the metalab team put a tremendous amount of work in the project 
including a virtual machine for atmel uC (google embedVM)  yet we did 
not receive anything yet.

now months later and only after silverfox anounced it has to close the 
mailinglist and will not work with element-14 from today on we get some 
foul reply from element-14 about working hard.

i am frustrated at this point in time and i will not participate in any 
future hackerspace challenge because of this extremely negative experience.

i think it is a good idea to spread word about the behaviour of 
element-14 in this operation.


i absolutely respect mitch, jerry, ben and all the other guys for what 
they do.
that element-14 fucked us over is not their fault.

the whole community site is witten in a bug-invested php framework, 
especially a lot of the xmlrpc interfaces are messy.
just saying. *cough*
