I guess this was more a thread to officially throw down the gauntlet so no one could say it hasn't been brought'en.
If he wasn't such a dumbass, this would have been an actual challenge like you're thinking, and would have been over weeks ago. But noOooo, someone had try and buy himself a stay of execution. But now he's all out of appeals.
Side note: when someone calls you out, you don't pull out your calender and try to set up a date, you get it over and done with, but whatever. Blender people are always a little off.
Here's my progress thread (again) which I posted in my first response:
BH I think its fine if you bump this thread every once in a while with just links to your updated progress, just so we know whats going on in your end. No need to maintain double threads. We wouldn't want to burden you with more work and have you claim something was unfair =P
