    You said, “… list of notorious companies or organizations that have teams currently participating.” A quick Google search (“define: notorious”) yields the following definition: “Famous or well known, typically for some bad quality or deed.”

    Seriously… you’re calling all your participants evil? That’s not very nice. I think (perhaps) you should use “notable” or “prominent” rather than “notorious.” ;-)

    Is there any documentation for the ADK/USB Host Shield? I’ve been googling for a tutorial or sample programs but only found out of date information :(

    Thanks!
