If you're wondering what's up with the Minecraft server it's whitelist only until Bukkit is updated and we can get everything setup for the new map. Sorry for the wait, it's taking a lot longer than expected.
Section 9 Cyber Cafe has pledged to support the Children Miracle Network through the Extra Life program. Extra Life is a program that lets tens of thousands of gamers join together to save the lives of local kids in a celebration of gaming culture. From console games to tabletop RPG's to even lawn sports, Extra Life gives people that love to play a chance to do what they love to save lives and make a difference.
To participate you need only sign up (free) and gather the support of your friends and family through tax-deductible donations to your local CMN Hospital. Then on Saturday, November 2nd (or any day that works for you!) play any game(s) you want on any platform(s) that you want with anyone you want for as long as you want.
The proceeds from Extra Life stay where they're raised to support children's hospitals.
