Met my goal. Pulled in $141. Not bad for less than 24 hours notice to ppl (thanks to David Whelan for his donation; every bit helps). Put in a good 15 hours and finally stopped at 9 am est (could've definitely done 24 straight if I didn't have a party to go to). Played Uncharted 2 online, Dead Space Ignition, Space Invaders Extreme, and Mirror's Edge. Damn good night of gaming!

I hear ya, I felt the bed moving every time I shut my eyes! Thought the house was shaking until my wife assured me it was all in my head. I _think_ that's better :)

Well, it was a great day!
I pulled in more then double my original goal of $200...
Had friends and family support through encouragement, donations and coming to hang and play with me.
My AMAZING wife stayed up until 5 AM with me to keep me company (we play Donkey Kong Country 3 and Bomberman Live together)
After crashing (took me about 2 mins after going to bed) and getting about 4 hours of sleep I am feeling pretty good.
We made a large contribution and everyone should be proud of themselves.
CONGRATS EVERYONE!

My mother sent me a check for some reason. Does no good since mailing it into CMN won't get it in for this.

Dang, I wish I gave you more money so you could make it. :-(

Nah I appreciate it. I got an email from Extra Life that donations can be sent until November 15th. So I'm going to forward it in.

That puts me at $199, which is $51 short of my goal but not bad.

Thanks to everyone that donated. I'm still exhausted (I think I fell asleep a few times with my PSP in my hands but I still claim that as game time!), but had a good time all around.

I'll post a blog summary tomorrow sometime.

Congrats everyone that participated. I couldn't play 24 hours straight as I had work. Wished I could have played 24 hours though. That sounds like it would be fun to try.

I feel sorry for BlueDotLounge. He has so many entries in his raffle. Impressive $964 donated. He's gonna have a fun time announcing all 201 prizes lol.

More of the aforementioned goodies. Shipping won't be a problem be cause A) many of the other prizes will be sent on from the respective company and B) One specific company has pledged a certain amount so I could take care of shipping.

Thanks in advance for you patience. You can still donate. Still trying to decide on the cut-off time.

Sorry I didn't shoot you a message asking when you were ending the raffle. I had every intention on doing so, which is why I put the "unless clearly stated" part in the OP. It must have slipped my mind. Sorry!

Think we can make it to $10,000 before the Nov 15th cut-off? If we do, I'll add this clock that KoeiTecmo offered to me:

bluedotlounge,

We don't have to do anything special to let you know the amount we received in donations right? You'll just get that from our pages and such?

I'm sure that bluedotlounge has taken notice.

Still, the donation period has almost ended, and the raffle will begin soon.

I will do mine soon, as mine will be much easier to run. Check the forums often!

I just want to say, Good job everyone. Good luck with the raffle, it's not the real reason why everyone donated and what not, but it's a nice little perk to those who donated and helped raise money.

On a side note, having a dead PC sucks, posting this from my PS3.

Don't worry. Everything should be said and done by mid - late November.

Ok. Sorry about the spotty attendance. A couple awesome thing happened this week that kept me really busy:

-Got to stop by Astro Gaming, which if you checked out their site, produce some pretty kick as gaming audio accessories.
-Sold my first freelance piece to GamesRadar, which involved meeting Danny Trejo: http://www.gamesrada...comment_content
-Played 2.5 hours of Donkey Kong Country Returns at a press demo session hosted by Nintendo.

AND great news to CAGers...

-I stopped by KoeiTecmo's office to pick up review copies of Fist of the Northstar, both on PS3 and Xbox 360, both of which will be included in this raffle. Also got 2 Quantum Theories one for each console.

They also gave me two of the alarm clocks, and man, they're hilarious. BUT, I won't include them in the raffle unless we reach $10,000.

-Last but not least, Nintendo held a press-only mixer in S.F. to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of SMB and they let me take 7 commemorative t-shirts. So those will be available as well.

More updates shortly.
