lol did you make that pic with a webcam?
is that only a cornerpiece or the wing below it too? The approach looks good i would say. Not cut to far for the beginning cause you can alway file a bit more. Youre gonna make it. :)

LOL nitro, because of that, you should send Stefan 10 of your pyramorphix for punishment! :P

hmm... is the plural of pyramorphix actually "pyramorphices"??? as for the plural of megaminx... "megamince"??? *confused*
(reminds me of Asterix and Ovelix)

And yes, you are right, I strongly believe that nitro will make a very nice puzzle. The initial pictures seem very enocuraging! :)

Clarification: When I voted "no", I hadn't even thought about how easy/possible it is to do. My sole reason was that it was already 9-0 for "yes" and I was worried people might think that this is a very useless poll because obviously everybody would answer "yes" and that it's just a lame attempt to gain attention. I wanted to prevent that. Plus, I'm a professional mean person (not professional enough to earn money with it, sadly).

Keep at it, Stefan. I'm sure there's a well-paying job for professional mean people. Some of my co-workers appear to do nothing but sit around and be mean all day, and they're making pretty good money. ;-)

It's a silly poll anyway if you've already started your project. Maybe I'll start a poll called "Should I have started this poll?"

No excuse. You will still receive the pyrmorphix! Plus, you are required to speedsolve them without breaking them apart! :P
(the one I bought from ebay had a piece come off after the very first turn LOL)

That was probably what the seller was thinking when he gave me my only negative feedback... three years ago!
(I am only kidding here!!! :oops: )

What's that all about? Didn't read that thread yet. Single sentence summary (hey that has a nice acronym)?

Well, nitro was kindly planning to distribute some pyramorphix to us. It turned out that they were low quality clones (i.e. easy to break after one move) so we all (including nitro) backed off.
Still, they were $5 clones, so the price was a secondary issue.
(hmm... three sentences... I need more practice LOL)

Please Don't Curse Here!

Although I am a pottymouth in person and it doesn't bother me, there's a lot of kids who come to this forum and it would be a shame if their parents banned them from here because of something that doesn't need to be said here in the first place.

Besides it's against the rules. Maybe there is a cursing forum we could join. :wink:

I'm a card carrying lifeTime member of the "curse like a drunken sailor" club but I keep it out of this forum as well. There's just something about this place that compels me to keep it clean.

I have trouble imagining what the X and + centres will look like after they have been shaved down. Not a good reason for voting No, but I did it anyway. ;)

Of course, I hope it works out and look forward to seeing the result.

Four day is nothing! sometimes i spend a month finishing my puzzles. i know for myself that sometimes i get bored of working on the same project and wont pick it up for a week. thats why i have 3-4 different projects going at a time. give him time to finish it. its a one of a kind puzzle and will take time to finish it. this is the reason why i never let people know what i am making because they always want to see what i have done.
