Indeed. Normally it would be kind of unfortunate to see the prize jostled down to the 7th spot, but The Krypt was absolutely solid. All around a pretty stellar month for submissions.

If it wasn't a substantial source of income, I wouldn't have asked. BUT if you were to choose between your three options then please give to the kids and people in Japan.

Nice job thatcomposerguy. Come into the stickam room panhandling and then we find out that tom has included a post mentioning you, and you're buying a mac?

It doesn't take 2500 US dollars to buy a decent computer capable of producing whatever you wish.

And then you tell us you are unemployed.

Get a job. A real one.

If by "panhandling" you mean answering direct questions and not even bringing up ANYTHING about my situation then yes, I'm guilty. As for the rest of your post I'm not going to respond. Thank you.

Well, I would love to donate for you to buy a new computer when something much cheaper would suffice but...

...well, wouldn't you know, I have expenses, too, and I also need a new computer. But interestingly enough, when I need to buy a new Mac, I have to use my own money -- and if I can't afford it, I have to save up for it.

Don't bitch about not having money. NOBODY has money. Nobody has had money since 2008 (except for the bank CEO's who made off with $400 million each -- hey, there's an idea, why don't you go and ask them for money!). And at least you are making some cash from your music -- I'm still composing for free.

It sucks to be in your predicament, and god only knows how depressed I would be if I didn't have the means to write music, but I fail to see why one person would, or should, get preferential treatment over everyone else who is also in need of money.

I guess April's winners and Pico Day winners overlap much, no?

Congrats to all the winners.

Warriors of the portal was a good effort but it was pretty shit, so many characters on the character info screen weren't even in it plus they decided to be fucking cheap and not show what happens to every character, instead they just skip to the finale part.

nah, you shut the fuck up. If you wanna donate cool, if not then dont. If it seems unreasonable to you then thats cool, dont donate.

The site's users have helped countless users with 'street cred' in the past, we've saved peoples pets, helped them make their mortage etc etc etc. In the end its an individual decision if you decide to do it or not and nobody's forcing you to do anything.

That is what it costs to get a computer for him to do his work properly. Simple as that.

Getting a 'cheaper' computer doesnt really resolve anything if it doesnt enable him to produce the quality of work people have come to expect and with the efficiency people have come to expect. I'd normally label these sort of things as pan handling if people actually hadnt proven their worth, but thatcomposerguy has and is probably why tom plugged him in his front page post. He's done music work for a ton of highly successful flash games/movies/series, probably some that you didnt even know he was part of.

Look nobody's asking you to front it all and buy this guy a computer, donate 25 dollars if you feel like it or dont. If he meets his goal, he'll get his equipment and if he doesnt then he wont, the end. It just kinda irks me when people bash people who've tirelessly have contributed their talents to the site when they come under financial distress. Specially from kids who've done nothing but contribute stickam thread posts ;)

Exactly my thoughts ... This guy wants $2500 for a computer. I'm guessing it's an Apple Mac Pro from his description

Best buy, $2500
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Apple&%23174 %3B+-+Mac+Pro+/+Intel&%23174%3B+Xeon&%23 174%3B+Processor+/+3GB+Memory+/+1TB+Hard +Drive/1209634.p?id=1218234418115&skuId=
1209634&cmp=RMX&ref=06&loc=01&ci_src=141 10944&ci_sku=1209634

Gainsaver, $900 used
http://www.gainsaver.com/Catalog/Detail.
aspx?cICode=121935&CID=103&SID=G0359LL/A

Buy shit new, spend 2.5x as much as you could get it for used in perfect condition. So whatever, he's begging for cash and people are sending it to him ... But why beg for $2500 when you can get the same for $900?

Best of April 2011

True.

See below post about used equipment.

I contributed material for an award winning flash back in like 2009. Can't find it now due to my account being rearranged when shit came back at me for me feeding the mods info on crebz activities and was caught due to the fact that a silly mod was phished. And if I'm a kid, you're an angsty adolescent mayunnnnn.

I still love you. You don't have to spend the night in a hotel, I'll leave the light on too.

Good choices. Man, Osuka's flash really excited me, since I've always been wanting to see how well his production through 3D Software usage is coming along. It's really impressive at this point.
