Shoestring is doing okay (1 Viewer)


Nowhere bound...

For anyone seeking an update on the legendary Shoestring (Mark), he is currently recovering in a care center in Port Allen, Lousiana. He has received at least two get-well gifts, including one of my custom CSX t-shirts - all paid for (see screenshot) below. Any support is welcome, but if you do, I figured it would be best to contact Shoestring directly for the address and room number. He is expected to be released sometime around September.

When I send out gifts like this, I usually never do this stuff because I want to brag about anything, prove anything, or impress anyone. It's because God usually gives me enough spirit and wisdom to lend a helping hand and even learn new things, that's all there is to it. I'd rather keep things to myself now since we live in a digital age where there's trolls everywhere we go; trust me. :)

ahh so it was you who sent that to him. Nice. I'm an Admin on DKCSC and am friends with him and John Burns etc. He's been getting some patches too (his birthday was last week). :) Cool!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
