And just in time for him to be in the running for the first 600 cell
solve! :-)
I have ceased trying to judge what people will and will not do anymore,
but seriously, is anyone actually going to attempt this new one? I would
love to hear Charlie’s story of conquest. I’m very impressed that he was
able to place so many pieces is just a week.

Regarding the 600 cell, is this level of slicing really the best for
this object? There sure are a lot of sliver stickers near the corners.
Also, there are so many that I think we’ll need a way to turn off the
face outlines because the screen can devolve into a huge mess towards
the middle. I’m getting about 1 frame per second, so it is not
unworkable in that regard.

Deep congratulations to the both of you,
