Re: Extra Life Marathonners?

No I don't. :( That came before class, and was settled: Charlatan won. That said, up now? Is spec. And this is one I'm again going to rally the troops on. The gang needs a healer, and caster spec is down 5 votes to my paltry 1. We need to push on caster! (With apologies to Dawn Friesen, but we HAVE...

Re: The Loading Ready Run Kickstarter

I would have loved to back a higher level but I wanted the shirt and a man's gotta pay to get to Desert Bus somehow! (Plus... I plan on winning a live auction this year and need stuff in the warchest for it) I'm calling it now: Dix v. Snowfire in an all out bidding war, until they both get sniped b...

Re: The "I'm OK" thread

I'm safe and dry, work is shut down for the day. Took a walk out to the ridge this morning and I can't believe how high the water rose overnight. :shock: When I drove this road last night the water was still behind the first row of tall trees, now there isn't a golf course any more (just a very larg...

They haven't finished the schedule yet, so hopefully we'll have at least one LRR panel when the final schedule is posted. The expo is going to be huge this year, should be interesting to see how they handle the crowds. Having the expo here with LRR in attendance almost makes it worth living in Calga...

Re: Desert Bus donation formula analysis

I don't think you can write off product purchases that include a donation to charity in the price. YOU didn't make the donation, you bought the product. The person/company who provided the product donates the money out of their pocket so should claim the tax benefit.

Re: Fitness Challenge - help with a class project??

I'm interested, do you know what kind of time commitment would be involved (approximately)? I definitely need motivation to get back to the gym, but I'm also expecting to do some field work over the next few months so that might make it a bit difficult to keep up. If your project can accommodate a l...

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

empath (eta: and every one else), MOST Desert Bus viewers can't afford the items that go up for auction.

Re: FANGAMER DESERT BUS SHIRTS OH MY GOODNESS

I also preferred last year's design to this year. A big part of that is shirt colour, since I really liked the red and charcoal (wish I'd bought both) and am not a big fan of yellow/orange/brown. That's just my personal preference, though, and there's no way for Fangamer to make every shirt my OMG f...

Moshi, that doesn't really work for me. It's not the length that's the problem, it's the (lack of) width. I wear the equivalent of a men's XL, but really need a scoop or v-neck instead of a crew neck so my "tracts of land" don't look like they're sitting at waist level. Ah, well. Just boug...

I have always lived at or below ground level for pretty much that exact reason.
