The Fly Gabe Newell Fund Has Been Successful!

We raised over $3000 in not-even-three-days. Gabe and Erik flew down on their own dime and hung out with me. All funds raised were donated to the Child's Play charity. See below for my summary of the event.

Thanks, everyone!

Travel Plans

Greetings, O followers of the Fly Gabe Newell fund.

Gabe and Erik have their flights booked. We are, it seems, all going to Sydney to hang out! It may be the case that a certain number of members of the public are able to come, but those details are not yet clear. I'll let you know.

The event will be taking place on the seventh of October. In a week.

That's pretty nuts.

Also, Gabe and Erik are paying their own way, which means all the money accumulated will be going to the Child's Play charity. It will be going there tomorrow, because today my internet is shaped and therefore too slow to load PayPal.

  2. They're not even going to come to brisbane at all?

    Fucking ripped off, that wasn't the deal

  3. So, not coming to Brisbane?

    Well, that's a bit retarded.

  4. Discrate: They're flying me to Sydney, I'm taking the campaign with me.

    Presumably they have some business to attend to in Sydney and are tying this in.

  6. Yeah, I don't think Sean's really going to miss his ten bucks that much.

  7. Bugger.

    Ah well, I suppose it would have been too good to be true. Have a good trip, and blow them away with your campaign, mate. We've thrown this much money into it to make this crazy thing possible, so I'm waiting for reports of Gabe's death via mind explosion, Joe. ;)

    But damn, it would have been an experience meeting up with the man.
