Shorah everyone,

Dunno about the rest of you, but one of my big regrets is not being in a position to aim for one of the big ticket contributor categories... sure would be nice to get to participate in the development, meet up with the team and all...

So anyway, I was wondering... should we start a pool? I'm not suggesting that anyone forego an individual contribution to the kickstarter campaign, but am thinking it would be awesome if we could essentially hold a raffle, with one very lucky winner being chosen from the contributors who would get the honor of "owning" the final contribution amount and taking advantage of whatever privileges the final amount would entitle them to. :D It would be **so** cool if one of us fans could participate in that way!

Of course, we could make it even more interesting between ourselves, if we wanted (games, contests and all), but I think it would be important for everyone who might participate to feel they had an equal chance at winning in the end.

Thoughts???

Yeah! A big Hooray! for our Tweek!!! ... :P

115.756 and counting (I've corrected this already four times haha) ... I already see Rand sitting there with his MacBook on his lap, as presented a few pages before together with Robin, and some others of Cyan maybe too, of course, having a great breakfast party afterwards haha, completely forgetting the time, answering questions and like under a charm watching those backers and bucks numbers going up up and away ... Yay!!! ... :D

Okay, so I went over the Kickstarter video with a suspicious eye. Cyan is famous for dropping hints and puzzles so I wanted to see if there are any in the video. I think there are. There are three instances where there are words prominently displayed:
  • "y e l l o w b r I c k" at 3:20
  • "f i r e l I g h t" at 3:24
  • "g e r m i n a t e" at 4:06

...that's weird. the reason I had to put spaces in the words is because when I don't I get this:
  • is.gd at 3:20
  • odu at 3:24
  • tol at 4:06

:shock: This has to mean something, right?

The name of the youtube video is 4/3 π r3

This calculates the volume of a sphere

Maybe "odutol" has a meaning? All letters except for the l apper in obduction...

and how did you determine that the sphere's radius is 3?

Can anyone download the video and break it down frame by frame? I'll bet that one of the spheres has the radius on it and we can solve the equation.
