What are the haps my friends

October 25th, 2006: The CN Tower climb was a big success! You can read about it here. Thank you everyone for the donations!

ALSO: at the top of the page you'll see a new advertising area. It is a project I have been working on the past few months, and it is called PROJECT WONDERFUL. The purpose of Project Wonderful is to make online advertising totally more awesome!

I'm testing it here for a few days, and if you'd like to use it on your own site, you can! You can read more about how Project Wonderful works here.

I am really excited for Project Wonderful because I think it can actually make a difference and make advertising profitable for both advertisers and dudes with websites! The slogan of Project Wonderful is "Everybody wins". It combines an auction model with complete transparency and a few other wrinkles, like free advertising when demand is low. For instance, you can run your ad for free on right now! Kapow!

also the pictures on the home page are all creative commons images from Flickr that show up in a search for the word "wonderful" and i think that's pretty neat

To make sure the best gifts ever in time get to you when you want them, here are the HOLIDAY SHIPPING DEADLINES. Orders placed before or on these dates will get to you in time for Christmas!
