On April 1st here in France, last year, the news said that the Earth rotation speed is decreasing because of so many wind turbines now, so all clocks will have to be changed, from 12 hours normal to 13 hours new, sending to garbage all the old ones, sorry… On April 2nd, they said it was a joke. I hope the Rotodyne 2.0 will be finished in time or later (good also, even if not a winner).

What Chris said.

My post #128 in the GB Discussion thread explained it, or so I thought.


The mods have met in plenary session (which is pretty good considering we're 12000 miles apart!  :o) and have decided, much against our better judgement, that there will be a 2 week extension.

Thus the GB will end at midnight, local time wherever you are, on Friday June 14th.

In case that's confusing it means you can carry on building until 2359 hrs on the 14th, but have to stop within the next 60 seconds.


Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Never assume I have bothered to go and look something up.
Being bone idle it is easier to just ask.

But thank you for pointing it out.
 :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Tophe.  It will be finished and I will continue to update the thread as I do so.  It is just very likely that it will be after June 14th.

See posts 106, 107 & 108 above. :-X


PS: If you think about it, it's actually 1 minute to 2am on the 15th ... I was tired, OK!

This definitely won't be done.
I will be concentrating on the 1WGB and then giving this the attention it deserves.
