I REALLY REALLY hope that somewhere, somehow, sometime, we can get the "operational details" of how the heck you ever pulled this one off. Nice job! Posted by: Tom on April 6, 2006 OH MY GOD!!!!!

Posted by: 0 on April 10, 2006 I demand CPW pictures! Posted by: Timur Sahin on April 10, 2006 Just an update on the current situation with the cannon that MIT took on a vacation. Posted by: Caltech Respondent on April 10, 2006 I wonder what the payback will be... Posted by: K-Ro on April 10, 2006 Ben! Thanks for making CPW so great. I thought seeing an article about the prank on the front page of ESPN.com as funny as actually seeing the cannon! http://sports.espn.go.com/ncaa/news/story?id=2406318 Posted by: Ryan on April 12, 2006 Lol they actually shot a video of the darn thing being stolen: http://www.flemingcannon.com/teasersmall1.mov Posted by: Vibhas on April 15, 2006 So yeah, this hack was amazing... definitely well-pulled off. What I can't figure out is why it took so much more from Caltech to get it back. (I hear $30,000+?) Seems like MIT has their act together, for sure. See you next fall, -Jared Posted by: Jared Sadoian on April 17, 2006 Comments have been closed.
