    Red Nose Day '09

    As you can see our new Red Nose Day theme is being rolled out.
    We are planning to take donations for Red Nose Day too so if you feel like donating please do so once I post its avaibility and you should see the donate button change. Any donations made from now will be resent to them as well.

    Also we have reset the max online users count. On saturday morning we (edugeek) will donate 10p per user in the max online users count for the 2 days.
    Basically if we had say a peak of 450 users online during the 2 days we would donate 45 to red nose day from edugeek direct.
    So for the next 2 days or so you should try to live on edugeek and we will see how high we can make the number go for charity. I know is says "Do something funny for money" but you guys dont need to for us. Just be on edugeek as much as possible and money will be raised

    Do something on edugeek for money

    EDIT: Donations are live. Any donations made will go to edugeek but I will resend it to comic relief. They are using a custom approach for paypal donations so there is no easy way to send it direct. People who donate will get a special rank as well

    I thought about it but the red nose day red is a bit much if it was everwhere. Its bright anyway before the page loads completely. More things may come tbh in a little bit.
    Bright red may be a problem for users too so I will need to seed another layout for people with eyesight problems too if it was everywhere.

    This has made me sad It's made the 20th birthday of the World Wide Web take a back seat.

    It's a big milestone... It's only 20 years old once. (And yes, it is for charity, but charity is not just a day of the year, it is a lifelong activity).

    True but save up all your excitement you were gonna use this year for the 25th as a quarter of a century is worth a good celebration.....

    Kids are coming in with their noses painted here. No non-uniform though.
