    Great! Now if we all just buy another copy, we’re all set ๐Ÿ˜€

    I may as well mention it here, in case someone didn’t read it on BlenderNation.

    JesterKing has created a script that’ll grab the numbers of sales and present them on a graph.

    You can find the graph here;

    So far, it’s a little under target, but hopefully as more news is added it’ll spike a bit.

    @ Markus: LOLOL

    But seriously, I really hope to see a turn around in sales.

    Congrats Durian ๐Ÿ™‚

    Though seriously what’s with the 109 pending they should get a move on an pay!

    Great news.
    Let us not forget that the 2000 was stated to be an ambitious target. Missing it will not be the end of the project. (I know, I know, of course we won’t miss it!!)

    Anyone remember what the target and the actuals were for the Orange project(BBB)?

  8. Gianmichele Says:

    It’s going to be missed, just a little more patience.

    Anyway, I’ll see you devs at the conference! Prepared to be blasted with questions ๐Ÿ˜€

    I thinking about purchasing this, but is there a possibility to buy only the ISO-files and stuff in advance (without the discs)? In my mind there’s already too much clutter and physical copies in the world and don’t want to own that stuff. I’m fully satisfied with bytes only.

    Succes! Now, anyone knows someone who has a cousin who might know someone who hasn’t brought the dvd already?

  12. Dark Star Says:

    Yay ! I will complete my payment soon ๐Ÿ™‚

    Come one guys ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Terry Wallwork : When you pay through pay pal sometimes if you do an account transfer it makes you wait so many days for the cash to “clear”.

    To be honest blender should look at exploring more payment options then just paypal.

  14. demohero Says:

    I agree with Manu Jรคrvinen. It would be very good to download the ISO files only. e-download section is a must I think.

    Just remember, every cent goes towards the future of Blender!

    Oh hey, just an idea….any way we could get that comment editing feature available on BlenderNation here on the Durian blog? Just an idea.
