I was unfortunately not able to attend the Sat May 6 2000 DPRG meeting
at BPI.

Did this all happen?  I'm particularly interested in the flooring
material discussion.  Also curious if Clay ran the UMBmark and
with what results.  I've run this same pattern and have collected some
statistics for a slightly modified version (10x5 rather than 10x10, which
fits in the space in my garage) for two of our robots: SR04 and LegoBot.
