Wow KC4. My thoughts go out to you and your family for battling this disease. One thing I've learned about prostate cancer during Movember, is just how many families this has affected.

Thank you very much for your generous donation! With that, we are at $505!

To make this a tiny bit more interesting, my good friend James has been participating in Movember as well. There's been some trash talking going back and forth about who is going to get the most donations. He's currently beating team ehMac and James is at $675! He's letting me hear about it too!

Please help me clobber my friend James!

Thanks Snaggy!!!! You hear that ehMacian's! I'll add that to the list of prizes picked from random ehMacian donations. (This won't be given to any friends or family donations, but strictly donations from ehMac members)

There's some cool beanies there!



To recap...

- Two signed ehMac.ca Mugs to the highest donation (Currently 2 members tied at $100) and a signed 8x10 photo of yours truly with my day 30 Moustache!



- A signed ehMac.ca Mug for two ehMac.ca Movember donating members chosen randomly

- A signed Joy of Tech book to one donating member.



- A Propeller Beanie of your choice to one donating member.

We need Mo donations!

To help, you can either:

* Click this link: http://ca.movember.com/mospace/886610/ and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account

* Write a cheque payable to Prostate Cancer Canada, referencing the team name "ehMac" or Registration Number 886610 and mailing it to: Prostate Cancer Canada, Suite 306 145 Front Street East, Toronto, ON M5A 1E3, Canada.

Woo Hoo!!!!!


I'm constantly amazed at the generosity and willingness to help be fellow ehMacians. It really warms the heart! We've receiving another $100 donation!!! We're up to $605!!

That's currently a 3 way tie for first place. Someone's gonna pull a Price Is Right strategy soon and bid $101.

If you're going for the prize, you may not want to do the same bidding strategy as this girl though:

My friend James is at $725. Did I mention my friend James is a PC user?

Let's keep this going folks!!! In the next 2 hours, I will match the highest single donation made, up to $125. (Give someone a chance to be the highest donator and leader for the prize)

I don't get it... I've watched that Price is Right video twice, I still don't see anything wrong with how she bid. She won, didn't she?

The first girl bids $1600, the second girl bids $1 lower at $1599. The winner is the closest bid without going over, so the strategy should be bidding $1 higher. When the 2nd girl bid $1599, basically the only possible way she could win would be if the price was exactly $1599. Anything lower, and she's overbid, anything higher and the $1600 bid wins.

HOLY COW!!!!

What a night!!! We have a new highest bidder at $150!!!

Team ehMac has broken the thousand mark at $1005. We're EXACTLY at the half way to our $2010 goal!

I'm very, very proud and grateful to all the ehMacians who have donated so far. Hopefully, there's more to come!

I will wear this itchy moustache with great pride all of November!
