I'm taking a special tack (not Tak - don't get excited) on this month's Post of the Month, because I think we have bit of a special winner on our hands.
We're not (technically) looking at runners up, because I think one Atomican's effort deserves to stand alone as an outstanding contribution. Not only has his posting enriched the site, and the forum, and excited all involved, but he's gone one or two steps further to raise a mess of money for a very worthy charity and put his own body on the line in the process.
In fact, between the waxing, hair-dying, and possibly even the lack of oxygen, it's almost literally true that Gharphield is a changed man. The least we can give him is a new Razer Electra headset!
Yep, Gharph gets the nod this month, and - if I do say so myself - deservedly so. At last count his 24-hour gaming event has raised well over $1,000 for the Make-a-wish Foundation, and his exploits to mark each dollar milestone have become the stuff of legend. On top of that, he's focused a mess of other folks for the marathon, and generally made the place a little bit more fun even than usual. If you haven't seen it already, you really do need to watch him getting choked into unconsciousness to mark the $1,000 milestone.
As to runners up, I'm not naming anyone, nor picking any other threads, but if you contributed to Gharph's drive, well done to you. You're our runners up this month, and thanks for supporting a great cause.
