    We are about half way through this drive. Thank you to those who have contributed, and there is still time left for those who are thinking about it!

    If you're looking for ideas may I suggest: Drunkenly wandering off alone only to be mistaken for a prostitute causing literally all of your friends to stop what they are doing to search for you Bowling A barefoot sprint through a grassy knoll Showing up with no means of getting home, no idea what your address is, and asking someone at the very last moment to take you home because it's "on the way" but really turns out to be a 332 mile detour (yes I counted) Or maybe just some board games?

  13. MadCast Angel - 2018

    The holiday season is in full swing and that means it is time for this year's MadCast Angel drive. While many of us are afforded the privilege of thinking about what we want or what we want to get for our loved ones, there are many out there thinking about HOW they are going to make it through this holiday season. MadCast has a proud tradition of providing for those who cannot provide for themselves. Started by one of our founders, our very own @MadCast Tort one day simply asked our small band of brothers and sisters if we wanted to go in on a gift for a child he had picked off of a Salvation Army Angel Tree. The reception was quite positive and every year we've continued the tradition. Check out some of the awesome work from years past here: 2010 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 Over the last few years the personalization that once existed started to fade away. Once we were buying an itemized list of gifts for a 6 year old boy named Chase. Later it became "Boy - Age 6". I have done some looking around trying to find something that was a bit more personal with the intent of having a more direct impact rather than our contributions being sorted and distributed. This year we are going to support a women's shelter that is hosting a Santa's Workshop. Mutual Ground supports women and children who are victims or witnesses to both physical and sexual abuse. Often times leaving a situation like that also means leaving behind your possessions. This year they will separate the children and parents into different rooms and allow them to pick from donated gifts to offer to their child/parent. They will then wrap them and open up their presents on Christmas. The window for this years donations is smaller. I need to have everything in their hands by the first Friday in December. That means we will run the donation drive through December 4th. To contribute simply donate to MadCast and in the note field type "MadCast Angel". All contributions are welcome and no contribution is too small. We understand that not everyone cannot afford to contribute a monetary value. You can still support the cause by spreading the word so as many people know about this as possible. Please do not post stating you are unable to contribute. Keep all posts on-topic and positive. If this is your first year participating in the drive you will receive a MadCast Angel badge upon completion. This thread will be updated regularly to reflect the contributions received. Donation Total: $522 Contributors bait Disma QuantaMentat Epic Scaldo LTTelamon CoachRivers Lurama Emaxxy Results Shopping is complete. We were asked specifically to contribute to the adult category and that gift cards go a long way. I still had to make sure we got the little ones some sweet gifts as well. When all is said and done this years MadCast Angel yielded: $120 raised (via Facebook fund raiser) $25 x2 Wallmart Gift Card donations $619.72 spent on gifts Total: $789.92 worth of contributions. Take a bow everyone. PHOTO ALBUM
  14. Show off your rig!

    No new tech, but I built a new desk. Still need a bit of cable management for a cleaner look but I'm happy with how it turned out.

    This is the type of game I think I have more fun being terrible at. I'm right there with you.
