What present should we get Cody for xmas?
« on: December 08, 2006, 02:08:25 AM »
We need to get Cody a present for xmas.  He's not religious but he does believe in santa clause so we really have no choice but to get him something.  Price is no object since he is imaginary.

What do you suggest we get for him?

The best suggestion by xmas eve will get a Cody Mug (if you already have a mug you are inelligible).

(As per usual, Cody's caretaker Nudone shall be the final judge of suggestions)

nudone, you've outdone yourself on this pic.  It's adooorable!

How about some fancy, able-to-be-activated-by-imaginary-adorable-creatures, recording equipment?  That way, Cody can give us an occasional update (or inspiration) via podcast.

how bout a donation account/link..  all donations to cody goto some animal charity or some thing.  :D ?
The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.

What do you suggest we get for him?

How about a Linux distro with the ability to hack NORAD and launch ICBMs wherever Cody pleases?

I would like to see Cody given more travel opportunities -- both for enjoyment and as an ambassador for donationcoder.  Now that he can move about better, he is certain to have a good time.

I think the donation in Cody's name sounds like a great idea. I'd participate.

And we can get Cody an all expense paid trip to the red birdhouse district.  :-*

I, too, would contribute to some animal-type charity on Cody's behalf.  While there are many, one possibility that Cody might like is this one, because it focuses on the international needs of migratory birds:  http://www.nature.or...rograms/birds/about/

If we set up a fund with a goal, then mouser could send it along from us once the goal is reached -- or we could just send whatever has been raised by a certain date.  Cody to the rescue.

There is another way to do this.

I belong to an internet group that made a commitment to contribute to Medecins sans frontieres http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/.  The members make individual donations directly to doctors without borders and then report their contributions to the forum.  So far, they have raised over $200,000.  No money gets sent to the forum site.  Instead, people make direct contributions (getting their own charitable contribution tax deductions, if applicable) and then send an email to the administrator of the forum, so the amount they gave can be added to the total raised by the members.  It gets reported publicly as something like "____________ raised $_____ for ______________ this year."

A prize is given each month to a participant (chosen randomly).

If that suggestion wins, it is of course I that should receive the mug :)

As for animal charity donation, I think there's better causes - think of all the poor children who are only getting a punch in the face for christmas :(

Anyway, my gift suggestion: a cute & lovely (think popcap games style) computer game, starring Cody himself.

a flash game staring cody would a great gift, as would a mini flash movie staring cody..  he obviously likes the attention  :P

getting him a play pal might be nice too, like maybe a teddy bear he can carry around with him (teddy bear should have its own coin he can carry)..

it's time to announce the winner of this little contest, to which there were many great suggestions. the charity idea was very commendable but it has been agreed that there are better places for such things (at the moment, at least).

i'm a very pragmatic kind of guy and i know what cody likes so the winning suggestion for 'cody's xmas present' is:

the birdhouse

congratulations to Arjen for thinking of such a simple but excellent idea. cody does indeed require a birdhouse of which i'll post an image of when the construction people have finished building it.

thanks to all that participated in the competition.
