GWJ Conference Call Live Done!

This Saturday at 9PM EST, 8PM CST we will be broadcasting a live podcast to do a show and draw the winners of the GWJ Donation Drive raffle! We'll take questions from the Ustream chat room and check in with some of the International GWJ Day events as they happen. How drunk will Cory and Allen be? There's only one way to find out.

As usual, we'll post an edited version of the show on Wednesday so you can still tune in if you can't make it.

YES! I LOST!

Keepin' the streak alive!

Seriously, though, Congrats to the winners.

Congrats to the winners!!

And I did loose the stream when there was a break. But was also playing TF2, so couldn't reload to get it back on.
List of the winners will also be at the end of the podcast.

Congrats to the winners!

Did anyone else have issues with commercials cutting out parts of the broadcast?

Never saw a single commercial on the stream. I'm guessing because of Adblock.

This. Happy for the winners but who are the winners?

I second your sentiments. Especially the part hidden by the spoiler tag.

Yes, use Adblock Plus. Turn it off on sites you support (like GWJ) and leave it on for the rest of the world.

I agree, the commercials were very frustrating. We're hoping to have a better option for broadcasting soon, but the cost to turn those commercials off is prohibitive.

Right on, I won something! Do I get a special prize for having my forum name written with a typo?

I still think your name should be a TF2 item.

I think he just called us cheap bastards for not donating more!

Congratulations to Winners!

See, this is why you didn't win something.

In all seriousness, the ads aren't ours. We would actually have to pay ustream to turn those ads off. That's all on them. We get nothing from those.

Yeah, it does sound like a Norwegian Sandvich.

Wow, I'm still in shock that I've actually won something, nonetheless the grand prize. I still haven't decided which of the 3 I want, but I'm definably going to take one of the consoles.

This site, and the people here are awesome. Here's to another incredible year with the best online community EVER.

You do realize that, in order to be eligible for a price, you need be member for at least 4 years and 10 weeks?

Spoiler:
I checked your profile of course ;)

If anyone wants to donate their PS Vita to a good cause I'll take it off your hands.

('Grats everyone!)

May all you winners get hit by cars and DIE!

Err I mean congratulations, of course!

If the first nine die, does bnpederson get it all? I have a feeling he could probably make it to each one of their homes. He's pretty committed.

The boy does have a habit of popping up pretty much everywhere.

i got so excited there for a second.

First time I get a chance to match faces, voices and forum names. Couldn't make it to the livestream due to real life shenanigans. Which is a good thing, because I had to rewind the video fur times: I couldn't focus on the discussions on account of how much Elysium is a perfect cast for Half-Life the movie as Gordon Freeman.

Winning a prize makes up for not being able to make it to the event...at least a little bit.

Even spambots are excited! Also, hooray to Atras for representing the Northeast S&T as a winner

Allen did not seem that drunk at the time of the podcast. Unfortunately, the hotel internet was not up to spec and he couldn't join you guys. Disappointing, but it does not lessen the greatness that has been PenguinCon 2011.

Thanks to all of the podcasters and the overlords for your support!

Actually a wifi-tether on a cellphone saved the day, AGAIN, and I made a brief appearance. I was making sure I wasn't plastered so we could avoid the "circle of dicks" fiasco from last year. It was pretty low key, but the lag made it hard to really have much of a conversation. I was glad to get back to the gaming and drinking beer portion with SuperDave.

I am so excited to have won! I think I was in the process of losing a game of Illuminati when I heard my name from DocAwk's computer, so I didn't feel so bad about not taking over the world. I will throw my selection preferences here, just in case the first two winners decide they don't really want a prize.

1) new Video Card
2) PSP Vita preorder
3) Steam games (damn the pile!)

Hey, you spelled "Minarchist" wrong in the OP.

Spoiler:
Really though, congrats to the winners.

Grats to the winners!

Maybe next year...
