I'm participating in Extra Life again this year, 24 hours of gaming to help children in need.

PLEASE DONATE! Look below for the link to the donation page, and feel free to RSVP to this event for updates as things progress toward the event weekend. Even if you can only spare $5, it certainly adds up... if everyone in my initial invite list donated that much, my goal would be surpassed by over 50%. All donations are tax deductible, at least for those of you in the US, and all proceeds in my case go to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

If you're not comfortable donating online, or can't for some other reason, cash donations are welcome if I'm likely to see you in person sometime this year. In that case, though, keep in mind that I can't give you a receipt for tax purposes.

If you'd like to help me out by spreading the word, feel free to share the link to this event page (that's one reason why it's public) or go even further and invite your friends directly.

Thanks in advance for your support!

More cash donations have come in, putting me at 1/3 of my goal ($332)! Thanks again to everyone who has donated so far.

I'm loving this game so far. The artwork is every bit as beautiful as the trailer suggests.

I wish this movie was playing anywhere near my home... guess I'll be waiting for the rental.

Looking forward to seeing it myself.  Now if they'd make a Deus Ex movie.

I don't know if things have changed there in the last few years, but blank media is taxed in Canada as a sort of fine, implying that you're going to pirate. Since the money is going to their recording industry anyway, at least some people consider it a license to do what it's already implied that they're going to do with it. That may be one reason why they're considered a "scofflaw" country when it comes to that.

Wrecking an economy to make a profit. Hmm... sounds familiar.

I've been using Alpine/Pine nearly the entire time that they've existed, but directly on the server rather than as an IMAP/POP client. These days, I also use Thunderbird and K-9 Mail (Android) as IMAP clients, which co-exist quite well since switching to Maildir.

Between the time that I moved into my own apartment and the upgrade to cable internet, I actually had dialup with a static IP. On at least one occasion, I'd be in the middle of a conversation on IRC, the call would drop, the Linux machine I had would reconnect, and the connection would keep going as if it was just a moment of lag.

Worth taking a look for the video alone.
What happens when you spin a CD too fast? The answer is that it shatters. The Slow Mo Guys captured some high speed video showing just how it breaks.

Same sort of idea, probably :-)
