There will be a way devised from now on, I've added craigbot to the server so we will have a native audio recording that we will be able to stick somewhere

Any rough estimate on when those recordings will become available? I may or may not have missed half the streams because I mistranslated GMT into PST.

We're only going to be able to do this with future streams unless our Tech Gremlin in Chief Syberis finds a way to get clips of the previous streams together.

Also, we have just added 2 more streams to the calendar so go check that out.

Also also, did you know we're just $100 from being 50% of the way to matching last year's total, after just 3 days? Anyone who wants to help us get halfway by the end of the day just needs to click here.

yeah the whole raising the target thing feels kind of bitter. I donated what I did to close the gap and i know it doesn't matter in the end but it doesn't feel right.
Remember kids, if it doesn't have private property rights, competitive markets and voluntary exchange then it's just sparkling feudalism.

Hai. Raising the target isn't anything new for us as we raised it last year continuously as well. The point is to encourage raising more for charity, and obvs we appreciate any donations that get made. The event is 14 days long so we like to keep the ball rolling ^-^

Perhaps reframe it from "raising the goal" to "blasting through the first goal, here's the next target" :P

Nods, definitely something we can work on in the future in terms of messaging, without distracting from the real achievement which is that we've raised more in 6 days this year than we raised in around 9 days last year & that people can help us race even further ahead by donating here!
