Donation Drive '07 - Update

A brief update for our 2007 Donation Drive and prize giveaway. We are on our 10th day of the drive, and we've already exceeded the amazing generosity of 2006. We are impossibly grateful, not just because we like money but because as our costs increase you guys step up in amazing ways to help us continue to grow the site. A few notes for those of you who have or are considering contributing:

-- The list of donors eligible for the prize drawing is frequently updated here. If your name is missing, please be sure you submitted the follow-up email linking your paypal donation with your forum name. See the original donation drive post for that info.

-- The donation drive has been extended through Sunday, September 16th.

-- Winners will be announced on the 50th anniversary podcast which goes up late Tuesday. The winner list will also be posted on the front page of the site.

-- Europeans, as well as North Americans, will now be eligible to win the two top prizes. However, we will not be able to ship the other prizes overseas.

Thanks again for your generosity!

Europeans hey.... Australia's sort of like Europe, in that we've got people... And a postal service...

No? Fair enough

You have a postal service? Crikey!

We'll check on Austrailia. Asia is right out, though.

Well, I may have exaggerated.... We have a kangaroo named Mercury who distributes our letters for us every fortnight. Australia's a big place to circumnavigate, even for a roo!

I personally enjoyed the Cold War podcasts, with Certis adoring the Commies because he thought they'd win. Yeah, way to go, comrade Certis!

There is an awful lot of red on that Canadian flag. Hm.

Better dead then red I say. But then of course I don't live in the frigid desolate wasteland that is Canada.

YAY!

... Yeah, I have nothing to contribute... except my donation.

Don't forget about your roving bands of drag queens.

Hey, who doesn't love Guy Pierce in women's clothing?

Wasn't the guy that won the prize in '04 from Australia?

Is this where I tie this all back to the REO Speedwagon concert?

I love you guys! So much!

Yes. I think it was MikeSands. It's why they started putting in geographic restrictions starting in '05.
Edit: Confirmed. First hit for MikeSands.

I love this site and I am glad to be part of this community, it's an amazing place to be

... and Israel is of course part of Europe:
- We use the PAL standard.
- We all speak English

In any case, I guess the first-prize console will be native to the territory from which the winner comes, yes?

Oh the new item is a golden land shark!

Yes boxing up a PC to survive such a trip and figuring out DHL's arcane customs forms was enough for me. Still though.. I'm amazed it actually survived that trip relatively intact.. considering I've shipped PC's from PA to Alabama and it looked like UPS decided to drop the box from about 1 story up and then jump on it a few times for good measure.

Good luck to all involved.. holding out hope for that sexy PSP..

Ok I donated! Where's my forum thingie!

Oh no one told you? They don't give them to chopper whores.

Well, when I win just wait for my reply about the 360/ps3 because I won't be online again until Fri/Sat.
