Yikes! There's only 10 more days until it's the end of the It's the End of the World As We Know It GB! We're thinking of extending the deadline to Nov. 11th. Do you want more time to get your entry completed? Vote in the Poll!

I voted "Yes" even though I'm not building anything for it.

Give the lads (& lasses?) a chance to finish anything running a bit behind schedule.

With an extension I might actually be able to submit something.  This build is looking pretty darn thin guys.  Maybe a longer extension would be better?

I can see if a longer extension is possible. How much more time do you think you need?

The World will now end on Nov. 11th!

You made your voices heard! The ITEOTWAWKI GB deadline has been extended! You now have until 11:59 PM (in your time zone) on November 11th to get your entry posted!

Let's see how many Apocalypses we can get!

You really are a lousy "end of the world" prophet, Brian! You announced the date, but forgot to mention an address for the cheques or a bank account for donations from those who would like to know how they could be saved! If you don't make millions from predicting the end of the world, you're doin' it wrong!  ;D
Cheers,

I'm sorry. The time I spent immersed in Buddhism as a young man has removed materialism from my concept of the apocalypse.

I have failed utterly.

 :icon_sueno:

But it's not too late for you to survive and succeed! Just pay-pal $49.95 to Brian@SpatLovers.com to find out how!

Seriously though, if any of you guys need more time beyond Nov. 11th, speak up!

The rumor is that the end could be postponed longer...

I'm working on small ship dio for the build but its on hold thanks to the storm.  I'll try and get back into this weekend and I'll give a better assesment as to the time needed.  In case your wondering its a "Cold War turned Hot" scenario circa 1984.

Just remember that we do also have the Clear Your Bench GB in case anyone is worried that they will run out of time on this one.
