    That's how hackathons work. No one who one anything at a hackathon didn't fake at least one major part of their submission

    Have a Hackathon coming up next week. And in keeping with the ancient traditions of hackathons, I'm stealing your idea.

    I actually did something very similar! It was at a hackathon and we had to do something very similar to make it work end moment (it was working before but suddenly stopped and I had no idea why)

    Um, I don't want to burst your bubble.
    Did this app for iOS years ago, failed miserably.
