In recognition of the job that Dr. Mabuse has done for Skepticality (recovering forum database from a crash including loss of 100+ threads and thousands of posts, along with software upgrades), Derek said he'd like to present an award to Mab at Dragon*Con 2007 (Labor Day weekend). Presumably for moderation above-and-beyond the call of duty.

In order to recieve it, he's actually going to have to get there. The plan is almost the same as when we sent Kil to TAM5: Derek and Swoopy have graciously donated space on their site, to promote a fundraiser to get Mab to Dragon*Con. The fundraiser will cover transportation and hotel, as well as the entrance fee.

More info can be found at the Skepticality forum. Or, you can go straight to their donation page and click the button with Dr. Mabuse's name above it.

Can't do anything with it now, but will as soon as I can.

I made the same small donation that I did to send Kil to TAM5. This ensures I can abuse Mab in Moonscape. I hope Mab doesn't blow it on the way to the airport by taking a fancy-schmancy bus instead of walking.

Thanks, Halfmooner! Every contribution brings me closer to the goal.

I now have a progress-bar as well. In the announcement thread.

$225US $250US collected so far...

Not really enough yet to order the plane tickets. As soon as funds allow, I'll be buying the plane tickets (with a refund insureance) because early booking/buying makes for lower prices.

Only 2 months left to Dragon*Con, so in order to ensure that I'll get a flight, I ordered the plane tickets today.

Even though there's still time to donate, the funds are currently uncomfortably low. I really hope money will start trickling in soon, in only to ease my mind about the trip.

Mab, I'll contribute at the end of the month when my next check comes in. Gotta have enough money to buy my bourbon, you know.

Thank you filthy for your contribution! It is much appreciated, especially considering your financial situation.

Okay, I made another, slightly more serious donation. And what's the prize? Yet another Swede in the US. As though we didn't have entire states overrun with 'em already.

Past the halfway point!


What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires -- desires of which he himself is often unconscious. If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way. - Bertrand Russell

A Skepticality member asked: "Is the meter up-to-date?"

Yes, the meter is up to date*. It hasn't changed for the last 2 weeks, because there hasn't been any more contributions.

However, we are half-way to the target!
That is reason for celebration.

If I clear out my in-case-of-emergency account, I just might have enough to go! It will make a big dent in my economy, but it really looks like I'll be going!
YAY!



(Donations are still welcome...)

* I recieve an e-mail notice of each donation, and every time I get one, I immediately update the meter and an Excel document for statistics. Currently, $100 is the highest donated amount in any single transaction ($120 split in two separate donations), $10 is the lowest, and the average is $58.

If more people started donating a lower-than-average amount, the average will get lower. Let's see how much we can get the average to drop...

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.
