So far all I have seen concerning the Poly head motor has been bench racing. No real build diary posts. No race results. So what else is left? Bench racing. So this must be the bench racing section.

I'm not really at all web savvy. Can you tell me what it means in the Linux community to have   been network banned from the GNOME IRC servers.

It means they didn't like #gnome3hate and other various iterations of the same theme each more offensive than the next.

Ben, since this is your "bench racing section," have you ever considered building a propeller-drive land vehicle?

You mean like boat propeller or aircraft propeller?  I'm all for the latter, but only if I can have a hand cranked centrifugal starter.  Get one of those big round engines strapped to the trunk deck, what could possibly go wrong!

A great idea and maybe a catchy name like "PROPSTER" for the project?
