About my generation: General Colin Powell once said:
"There were more of you at Da Nang`than at Woodstock."
Well, honestly we would have preferred Woodstock, but the "Cold War" was in full global contest, and Vietnam was the hottest area, and we were all "invited" to be somewhere else for Woodstock. We notice that a lot of you are not taking advantage of our daily National anthem feature. Frankly we think this nation rocks, but maybe we need to start rocking the anthem a bit to get you aboard for the daily warm up. Check this out                                                 :

 Bipeds We Gotta Talk:

We're down to fewer days than you can count on the fingers of one hand. The Bot is grossly under backed. The current Indiegogo funding drive closes soon. Donate now lets close with a bang. We may not have made the goal but funds were raised, and the pursuit of a diving, intelligent coral repairing robot goes on. After a while there will be more funding drives. The AAB crew will not forget. So as "7 of 9" says:
BACK THE BOT! RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.We'll just keep reminding you until you do.  CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW TO DONATE.    Click on the link below to read Namazu's detailed instruction on how to turn your donation in Bot research into enhanced sex appeal.
