So for my good duties, can I have my OG name back?

Or is this a bad time to ask?

Glad to know my NT browsing is helping someone

Though the announcement posts have since been lost, we also donated $2,907 to Gawad Kalinga and $3,908 to Ettie LeeHomes.

That puts our current total at over $86,000. We have a lot of work to do in order to exceed $100,000 by December, but hopefully ad rates will rebound andparticipation will improve now that we've worked so hard to prevent a recurrence of the ad issues we overcome this past fall. (Should anyone come acrossan inappropriate ad, please take a screen capture (print screen key, then paste into a graphic editing program and save as an image file) and send it, alongwith the ad's web address, to ads@yuku.com to report them to Yuku, our hosting provider.)

We can also do even better if we can increase t-shirt sales. All of the proceeds form our t-shirts will also benefit charitable causes. Though we're allsold out of the 9th anniversary and NT Cent designs, the classic Alpha shirt is still on sale and, at the moment, it's available in all sizes. Limitedsizes are also available in the VIII design and the OG shirt, circa 2000. Check store.niketalk.com for those if you're interested. Though I'm hardly impartial, I've bought at least 3 of each andI think Steez and Rajah did an AMAZING job on them. It's just a shame that, of all the famous names, only Chi McBride has been cool enough to send backphotos of himself rocking them.
how long did this take? the $19,000 part...
Revenue reporting is pretty tricky business these days, since so many of the lesser ad networks are less than reliable in terms of scheduledpayment. It's several months worth of revenues to say the least, but we're still owed revenue from nearly a year ago from some networks. Google isone of the only networks that truly pays out on time every single month. Since we try to use a rotation from a variety of sources to maximize revenues, fundsowed never quite match up to funds available and payout is so irregular that, as a result, our donations have become equally sporadic. What we've wound updoing, as a result, is pooling donations from longer stretches to sponsor larger projects - like the Amur Leopard Conservation Society and this Room to Readdonation. We still have some leftover funds from 2008 to allocate, though, and we've yet to spend anything from '09 since I've yet to receive ourQ1 report.

So for my good duties, can I have my OG name back?
Nice try.

kinda ironic that NT built a library of all things.
If you spend time here on a regular basis, you can't tell me that you don't feel an overwhelming desire to combat illiteracy.

just curious, who is it that decides on the selection of the particular charity? don't get me wrong, a library in nepal is something i totally support andi think its great, but all of these seem to come from left field, i kinda wish i had the opportunity to participate in some form in the future....
do the mods decide, or is there a voting thread or something?

MM FTW.

At least our rampant and conspicuous consumerism is somewhat helping for a cause.
