Yeah I'm hoping to get up early to catch some of it. It just depends on how the hangover treats me  :)

I've already made my donation.
From the looks of it, the programming schedule is definitely one for Nintendophiles. Can't wait!

Why not just cut the final recording down into multiple 2 hour episodes and upload them to iTunes (Doin' It Live part 1 of 6, 2 of 6, etc)?  It would be no different than 6 RFN podcasts.  The show would then be available to everyone regardless if they donated or not.

By making the podcast(s) only available to donors defeats the point of doing this special show.  I am sure future listeners may end up donating to child's play after the fact as they learn about it on the podcast.  You also lose the potential of drawing in more NWR website traffic and new members.

Seacor, the point of recording the show isn't to withhold it from and punish non-donors - it's to reward those who do donate with a version to keep. The original plan was to just stream all of this live and not record it at all - the idea to send an MP3 version out as a way of giving thanks wasn't brought up until later.

We are exploring options for sending the recording to everyone, so don't get too upset about it just yet. Also, please remember that we aren't sure if the recording will even work or sound decent at all. We've done tests but it's different when you have so much going on for such a long time.

I will enjoy cutting down this year's Christmas tree with the family while lamenting my inability to participate tomorrow; family responsibilities first - self-indulgence later...really hoping that recording will work out and be available to those who donate.  Thanks to the crew who are in it for the long-haul...break a leg!

I was hoping to load up the live stream on my iPhone browser, but apparently the flash "play button" to start the live stream isn't supported by the iPhone (at least it doesn't show up in the Safari browser...just a big blank white space below the RFN icon).  :(

Anyone have any idea how to stream this via my iPhone.  I can't sit by my computer for hours on end tomorrow but I want to catch the show.

The Skyfire browser supports Flash on the iPhone.

*EDIT* I was just checking out more on Skyfire and it appears it only supports Flash VIDEOS.  Flash apps and games are not supported.

Jet Pilot, you can always throw the MP3 link into your browser - it'll stream via the Quicktime player in Safari.

You can also play the stream URL in iTunes, WinAmp, Windows Media Player, and just about any other audio program on any platform, including smart phones.

I feel a bit bad that I've put all my effort into CAG's Child's Play fundraiser this year (because, of course, I wasn't much expecting NWR to do anything and CAG does something every year).  I've been putting some effort into CAG's that I could have put into NWR's to make it better. :(

It's not much, but I'd like to throw in a few prizes - who's in charge of the prize list so I can PM you?

Get in touch with Jonny ASAP, Bob. And you should email him instead of PM.

Donation complete! SUCCESS!!1

Yar, I'm sure the majority of people donating realise that regardless of previous commitments, they'd probably miss out on the majority of the awesomeness, thus would like that security and comfort of...etc.. You get my point. Not only that, but Greg's voice puts me to sleep. SO SOOTHING, ZOMG!

*Aus listener #19 looks at time zones*
...Wait, it's in 6 hours?! Blarg...4:00am start.

*EDIT*

Also, many thanks to UncleBob.  :D

I can't seem to make a donation on PayPal. I'm not going to be around all day and I want to be able to download the podcast. Any thoughts?

Our donation box will remain open through Monday. Even though the live show is over now, we would still greatly appreciate your donation, and we'll be happy to help you donate to Child's Play even after that because it's a great charity.


As for the recording, Karl thinks it worked beautifully and will probably slice it into three 2-hour chunks. We're double-checking the bandwidth issue but hope to be able to provide it to everyone on the podcast feed.

Dangit.  I missed every bit of this.  Was really hoping to get home from work in time to catch some. :(

Great job guys. You should consider doing this quarterly or semi-annually, maybe choosing a different charity each time.

Awesome show guys, and I just want to say that it was awesome be be able to call into my favorite show (even if it was to answer a trivia question about cho aniki) and win some swag.  My birthday is December 8th, so to be part of this show just made my week a lot better.  Hopefully you guys can make this an annual event!
