Just when you thought desert bus was done and over with, we do this!!!
Tomorrow night at 7:30 PST, Graham, Paul, Bill, Morgan, Matt, Jer and Myself will be jumping back on the webcam to conduct one last hour of live desert bus fun. We will be giving out huge thanks to all that deserve, recalling some of the more insane moments and making Morgan drive just one more hour!! The chat will be open to all. So clear your evening. Should be a lot of fun.
Great stuff! Can’t wait!
Sadly I will be unable to attend, since I will be at a concert tomorrow night…
Will it be available for viewing later on?
That woman who told people in the final webcam minutes not to donate so that people could leave/go to work?
MAKE HER DRIVE. Seriously, I couldn’t believe I heard a charity coordinator telling people not to donate.
Yeahhh! I can’t wait. I was worried it would be at a time I couldn’t make it, but I’ll totally be there. :]
Make Kathleen drive? She had to fly out to like Vancouver, I think. Which if google maps is to be believe is only 109 km (68 miles) by the route they suggest.
I can understand that along with the “we’re 5 minutes over” along with “as awesome as it is for people to donate, we don’t want to be playing FOREVER” since you’d see this final barrage of donations in the last few seconds every final hour. The Thursday sign-off should give something for everyone. More LRR streaming video with chat, Morgan pwning desert bus with his mad skills, and Child’s play STILL gets over 22k.
Fantabulous job LRR!
See everyone Thursday night!
if the chat is open to all you geniusses better figure out a way to unban me, and next time don’t ban unless u can unban
I have to agree… accidentally banned me just before I was going to bed last night… made me very sad since I wanted to be able come back on this morning to congratulate, at least I still was able to /msg them… Just use an actual IRC client, or at least one of you use an actual IRC client, and then have your LRR user op the person on the actual IRC client so they can fix that stuff…
I really would like it if the recap could be recorded somehow. I won’t be able to watch it. Maybe even copy the chat too. And I want to thank you guys. That was one of the most amazing things I’ve seen on the tubes. You all did awesome. Even Bill.
I was telling people not to donate because we were over time. If you wanted to keep us tortured, donating at that point would have been, at best, unfulfilling.
Anyhow, Graham had a final project critique at 9:30 am, and Morgan had to work, so it was probably better that we finished up when we did.
As for me, I live and work in Vancouver, and I had to return. While it may only be 109 kilometers, it’s 109 km over water, you have to either fly or boat into Victoria. I flew back that less than 20 minutes after the drive was over.
Also, if you wanted to continue to donate for the purposes of charity and not just so you could keep the LRR people playing, you could go straight to the Child’s Play website: childsplaycharity.org.
Can anyone record this? I’ll, sadly, be at work But I’d like to see this.
And Ban only lasts for an hour they said.
I also vote for it to be recorded.
Oh, I’m SO there!! This is going to be epic 😀
Well, I’m all for recording, even though I *WILL* be there; others will not.
And maybe the crew will have a Micro$oft compy present for the op-work since they stated they were having problems using Macs for same. :S
All in all, it’s broken-record time: you guys rock, everyone that donated more than me rocks, and well…WOW. I really am chuffed to be even a minor, miniscule part of such a wonderful thing that will do such good!
damn. Working. I’ll 5th the cry for a recording
Check it out – the A-Channel News Report on Desert Bus for Hope:
Good luck with your crit, Graham. I hear those things suck (/end mean Art in-joke)
Glad to read that Kathleen made it back OK! (apparently)
Would like to echo the “plz record”. I think I might be at a concert that night as someone else said. . . (Same concert? who knows!)(or will I?! I don’t know how tickets work–I’ll cross this bridge later)
woot we made YouTube!
We’ll record it on Ustream and post a link afterwards. No worries everyone!
I’m going to see this XD
I’m so glad you guys are going to record it. Congrats on the funds raised. I’ll try to get the comic done before tomorrow.
What time is this GMT?
For all those foreign kids?
I’ll be there tonight (11:30pm Atalantic time for those in the good old maritimes). I’ll bring more game trivia too
So what time is this GMT?
PST = GMT -8 So that would make it 15:30 GMT.
Actually, since it’s 7:30pm, it’s 19:30 + 8 = 03:30 GMT
yea, just thought of that. Would be easier if they could write out pm/am. Was wondering if they might not wanna play Desert Bus at 07:30 in the morning =P
Just to add my 2 cents on Kathleen telling people to stop donating….
No matter how much fun this was, at some point in time it had to stop so people could get back to their lives. I’m just happy it went on as long as it did! It really grew into a life of its own! I hope to see something like it next year!
i’ll try and make it 😀 i’ve got to decorate my store before i come home tonight. but that shouldn’t take too long.
did anyone get to see the A-channel report? i don’t see it on Youtube and i don’t have cable
I’ll be here.
I only found out about this a few minutes ago via pure pwnage, and I’m sorely disappointed I found out mere hours after it finished. Will there be a newsletter or anything to sign up to so people will know next time this kicks off?
Dagger, Beryllium had the link further up the comments:
How many points in total did you end up earning?
They earned 6 points until the first crash.
You guys could have timed the recap at the time when European visitors could also watch it …. you need a PR manager 😀
I <3 you guys.
I look forward to the ‘best of’ video.
For all those trying to figure out the time.
I just caught the news Brodcast live. (thank you time shifting!). too bad it was after it was finished i could of seen that gettign a good boost…
Yay I’m excited its like a birthday gist from LRR since mine is today lol
Next projected start date: July 18, 2008 @ 6:30pm PT.
why july 18th. sparky?
Congrats on the successful campaign!
If it is July then it can not be in support of Child’s Play.
will you release a torrent of the madness? 4.5 days of video will round out to 44 GB by my calculations, but i’m a big enough fool to torrent it. i got enough free space!
if not, could you at leat put up a “desert bus for hope greatest hits” avi AND/OR an upload to youtube.com?
Has this been recorded? If so where can we find it?
There are a few videos saved at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/desert-bus-drivercam
From what I saw of her, Kathleen is one of those people who find conversations and interject themselves into it until everyone is paying attention to her.
If you’re not looking at or talking about her, she panics and has to get focus back.
“I’ll go put on a pretty dress for you!”
Very true Lymp3.
I’m not sure why this has turned into ‘bash Kathleen’. She seemed pretty well-adjusted to me and I only saw her in the same capacity you did.
This is the internet. It’s cool to be unnecessarily cruel to women. All of the girls I talk to say that as soon as they let slip their gender online, they instantly become the target of a grotesque mixture of hate and lust from every male within typing distance.
In short, GTFO Internet tough guy. You’re not welcome here.
It’s not necessarily intended to be bashing. . . Lyph3 (and Ian) did state “facts” from (his/her) perspective. However, it was not very tactful from my perspective.
Translated to internet: “moar tact plz kthx”
also, I still haven’t slept enough to spell, so I’ll have to resort to copy paste. Make that Lyph3.
now i’m confused
RE: “This is the internet. It’s cool to be unnecessarily cruel to women. All of the girls I talk to say that as soon as they let slip their gender online, they instantly become the target of a grotesque mixture of hate and lust from every male within typing distance.”
. . Actually, I just get creepy lust mixed with. . . um. . . guys standing up to defend me because they think I can’t do it myself.
[Edit: To be fair, sometimes I suck at defending myself. And appear to be otherwise incompetent. Like right now.]
Back on topic: when are we going to get this recording?
Lyph3, are you sure you’re not thinking of one of the other girls? Kathleen’s 20 questions was trying to keep things interesting for everyone in the chat, and I thought she did a stellar job. There were definitely some attention grabbers there, but I truly don’t think she was one of them.
Can we please stop doing bashing of any sort on this site? Thank you.
The recording is currently viewable at: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/desert-bus-drivercam
Lyph3: are you thinking of me? ;_;
I don’t think Kathleen is attention-grabbing at all. Her 20 questions were awesome!
*literally leaves DB to put on a pretty dress* XD XD XD
