I came to realize that after all this is over, and RT has a new bed. Every time he goes to sleep at night, every night, first thing after he get's under the covers, he's going to be thinking about all the people who contributed. I know it shouldn't but that just creeps me out a little. I'm going to contribute anonymously.

 

I feel the opposite about it. If he isn't thinking about a hockey mask while masturbating then that just seems a little ungrateful and selfish.

I'm waiting for Atari to release their own official pajamas.

With speakers in the pants.

 

Hahahahahhahahaha!

 

In your honor, I will be increasing my donation to Duane's crazy mixed-up bed fund to match yours.

First time donation, long time, uh, lurkation?  Went the PP route.  Good luck getting the bed! 

 

And if anyone gets a chance, pick up a copy of Seaweed Assault. It really captures the feel and fun of a classic atari game.

Saw the cardiologist today. He said since I was tested about every way you can be tested in July, there's no need for him to do any more testing. I have the OK for gallbladder surgery, so now I'll be contacted by the surgeon one of these days to let me know when his schedule is free for choppy-choppy time.

New Year's Eve might be the cause of a bunch of drunk donations. I hope I won't have to give those back after they sober up. :D

Found out yesterday that my gallbladder surgery is scheduled for January 11th. My sister is planning to help us move stuff to the apartment on the 8th, 9th, and 10th. Looks like just about every potential AtariAge donor has already donated, so please share this link at other web sites:
 
https://www.gofundme.com/duanes-squishy-adjustable-bed
 

Think of it as a game and see if you can reach the high score before time runs out. You could be a major reason that the goal is reached. Can you get the high score? Remember, the bed probably needs to be purchased a week before the 11th to give the store time to set a delivery date.

 

Thanks.

Can you make it with what you got now? I have now idea how your home situation is or how spread payments in the US work so forgive me if its a stupid question. 

But I do hope that you make it before the operation!

Thanks. I don't have credit, so I'll just have to wait and see if more cash comes in. I know for sure that $200 more is on the way. The good news is if I don't make the goal, I can spend it all on cocaine and hookers. :D

I've just started an auction for Boulder Dash for the Atari 2600 to benefit Random Terrain.

 

The copy of Boulder Dash was donated by Andrew Davie, and this is the copy that traveled from Australia to the United States, up to Canada briefly, back to the US, and then to Austin.  I've included a brand new box, manual and poster, and will include a second poster free for those in the US, shipped in a tube so it doesn't have to be folded!  Included also is the original box, manual and poster, all of which have some wear.  There's also a homemade SaveKey (for saving the high score), an Atari patch, and an Atari pin, along with the other extras that were included with Boulder Dash (a small bag of "diamonds", and some Atari / AtariAge pins).  
 
Here's the auction:
 
https://www.ebay.com.../-/222781581956
 
Since only 250 copies of Boulder Dash were sold, and no more will be made, this is a rare opportunity to acquire the game, much less acquire one with a brand new box, manual and posters!  And the money is going to a great cause as well.  100% of the auction ending value will go to Random Terrain.  I'll be covering the listing/ending fees.  Thanks again to Andrew Davie for donating his copy of Boulder Dash to this cause.

Thank you Albert, Andrew Davie, and the lucky person with the winning bid at eBay for $250,000!

 

[What? I know that sounds high, but I can see into the future and that's what I see. Disclaimer: Since there are an unlimited number of universes, I might be seeing into the wrong future. In one universe, this copy of Boulder Dash gets traded for a used rubber ducky. That's not saying anything bad about Boulder Dash. Used rubber duckies are highly valued there. With all of the particle collider experiments going on, creating Mandela effects and other problems, lets hope the streams don't get crossed and that rubber ducky stays in its own universe.]

Hope you make it! Maybe people could borrow you some cash? I could but I'd need it back at some point. Not the whole thing though.
