[GAMING] Extra-Life.org 24-hour Gameathon – Plan Version 2

Well, this is getting crazy.

Right now, it looks like we have the previously mentioned ultimate rockband set-up happening.

Additionally, I’m setting up at least one table, possibly two, for PC gamers.  At least one person is bringing their desktop rig, three or four are bringing their own Alienware laptops, and it appears we may get to borrow some machines directly from Alienware.  WTF??  How does THAT happen?

The xbox thing continues to grow, I think.  The three are guaranteed, with a 32″, 42″, and 47″ TV to run ’em on.  We may also have another 42″ TV showing up, in which case, I think the second 42″ will join the 47″ and first 42″, and the 32″ will go upstairs with the Wii, where there will be a MarioKart Tournament.

Problem now is, where do we plug all this stuff in?

And the problem is solved by the arrival of at least one, but possibly two 8-port switches, an additional router, and… Hunh. I guess I need to see if we’ve got enough CABLE for all this, too, although I’m sure a bunch of the PC’s will be able to hit the wireless just fine.

It also occurs to me I’m gonna need a ‘charging station’ area for people’s phones/tablets, etc.

On top of all that, we’re now sitting in the “closing on $1000” range in donations for the team, so if I might respectively bug anyone who’s reading, once more, for a donation? I’d LOVE to see the team break that threshold, with only three weeks of fundraising.

Or, you can go to the Team’s page, and make a donation to anyone of the team members: team bombshelter donation page

As of this writing, we’re at $661 showing.  HOwever, Jeremy “The Senatron” Strydonck got in costume last weekend and wandered around downtown soliciting small-change donations.  He came up with a hundred and thirty bucks.  I also know I have at least another hundred bucks coming in donations, as long as everyone who’s promised a donation makes one.  That puts the team around nine hundred dollars (and semi-officially at $791).

With four days left to go, I’m CERTAIN we can break a grand.

WON’T YOU THINK OF THE CHILDREN?
