Popcorn celebrations



Hi Anastassios,
is it fine when we start a popcorn session already?

Let it be as is, here are my top five NAMES from the 40
teams that have submitted so far:

5. Team Kataskopoi
(that is Greek and means something like "spy" or "spy ring")

4. Karmarkar's Gang
(is this an Indian branch of Cosa Nostra?)

3. worhp2orb (a team from Bremen, Germany)
it sounds almost like "worp to orb", and
Worpswede is a famous artist town, 25 km from Bremen

(with it's double meaning)

and my absolute favorite:

1. Low Orth Erbit
(perhaps they would have performed better in a task where the
Orth cloud should be populated)

Cheers, Ingo.
