I gotta say that when I first heard of this challenge I thought "I give it a month and he'll have given up and be setting the goal much lower." In fact not only that but I dont even think I thought it'd be possible to get 8m vpps. It's so common for guys (myself included) to set goals without really taking in to account how hard they'll be to achieve and not long after starting and realising just how many things can get in your way adjusting the goal accordingly.
I'm not saying I wasnt interested to follow your progress, or to see how many VPPs you could get or that I wasnt roooting for you to achieve your goal. I think actually my first thought on hearing your goal was, "that would be amazing - I hope he does", followed by "I doubt he will".
I know you havent achieved your goal yet and whether you do or not to get this far and have achieved what you have is amazing. I really hope you're able to keep it up it's not only an amazing achievement for you, its great for the game as a whole to demonstrate what can be achieved with such a determined focus, work ethic, and maybe a little bit of skill too
Best of luck in the coming months and ty for reminding me that whilst many of us don't achieve the extreme goals we set some will and do.
Btw the national debate on min wage and discussion in various areas about robosourcing and the like has sparked me to write an essay, I think a lot of people, even smart people, are missing some key points on it. Maybe after SNE I will look into this. I would also want to do some research to minimize the chance I am wrong.
