Chris, depending on how my finances are looking next week, I'll see about dropping at least another $50.00 - and if it's getting too late to use to purchase stuff, use it to pay for shipping.

missed this somehow. Chris, I'll bring a bunch of books and supplies to Rumpshot's Revenge rather than spending money shipping them. the money I save will go in the pot.

Chris, do you have an update on how we're doing for the Care Packages / donations?

Come on guys, I realize these wars have been going on for a while now, but that's no reason to not support our troops in harm's way, especially coming up on the "holiday season" and they're spending it in the sandbox.

I sent a small donation to the tipjar a while ago; I'll see if I can swing one more tonight. Sorry, sent a moderate amount of coin to losing candidates last month so its tight till payday.
