YAY!!

It's finally begun and we have our wonderful mascot Cody once again starring in his own little tale of illness and redemption in the site banner (thank you Nick for the wonderful images).

I'll be blogging about the fundraiser, and posting updates about the planned release of something new each day, on:


Help us spread the word about this to all of your friends and any sites you know about.

Let's make this a happy, celebratory event.  And let's once again make this an opportunity to welcome new people into the fold, welcome back old members, and look forward to ways we can make the site more useful to everyone.

And also.. THANK YOU.  Thank you to everyone who has made it so enjoyable and rewarding to hang out on the site.  There are so many good people here who have made life more interesting and who have contributed to the site -- it would be wrong to try to name them.  But it's to them that we owe thanks that the site is still here and still enjoyable to be a part of.

See you on the other side, and let's get Cody across the banner finish line early!  :Thmbsup:

Don't be shy about posting on this thread -- we can use it as a public place to cheer on Cody as he recovers from his "illness".

Special bonus points if your very first post on the forum is to this thread -- just introduce yourself and say hi!  This can be our silly thread to just jump around and shout and have fun.

I was up all night chasing Cody around the house to get him dressed up to take the photographs for the banner images.   You know how it is with young kids and spoiled birds, they don't like to sit still for a minute.

Here is my first blog post about this fund raiser, featuring Baby Cody: http://nrrd.de/content/rise

The language feels a little bumpy to me, but I hope to improve during the fund raiser (I promised to blog about it once a day).

I had it written this morning, a few hours before it officially started :)

Here is the image I made this morning (while Baby Cody is still at my place):

I'm looking forward to this very much. Here's to making new friendships and renewing old ones: probably via some risque banter in the process  :D

YAY!!

Apparently, I have to do this.

Being English, I'm not very good at these displays of advanced emotion and that sort of thing, and I shall probably blush.

<ahem>

Hoorah!

Just because of that it will be even more appreciated :up:

I'll do it in Dutch, just to attract some fellow Dutchmen: Hiep hiep hoera!

Hi from Paris (France), keep up the good job guys!
I would tell it's almost (well... eh... not really but very close) a pleasure to give some money to you guys and keep this site as my fav place for information about software and also a *very* nice place just to hang out.

"Merci beaucoup" as we use to say on this side of the globe  :Thmbsup:

Cheers  /jerome

Well the newsletter is going out, and like i said on the irc channel:
Quote
<mouser> these will be the biggest donations we get all month
<mouser> it will drop to a trickle soon
<mouser> the reason is because the fundraising email is going out now
<mouser> and it goes to supporting members first
<mouser> so what we are seeing now is all the very cool nice great people
<mouser> who have supported DC in the past
<mouser> responding like the awesome people they are.

Best thing you can do, as an active member of the forum, is send your donationcredits out to people on the forum to spread the love, and not worry about getting them into the site account.

Bought a new GPU last month and had to do a fair amounts of bike repairs, so couldn't donate as much as I wanted to - but I hope it'll help keeping the wheels spinning :)
