      Brett!

      I hope all is well in Chicago, bud. Good luck with CB. It's gonna be great. The Bears beat The Cowboys! That's gotta be good luck!

      love from Prague,
      Eddie

      This project is insanely awesome and needs about $76K to pay out. That's not as much money as you might think.

      If all 93 of us (Backers) each get 25 people to pledge $35 - that'll cover it and we all win.
      Between Twitter & Facebook, I'm sure you have many more than 20 contacts.
      Get the word out. Tell everyone. Tell anyone.
      Put out some creative posts. Go crazy - get it viral.

      It's way more fun to win when the odds seem awful - ask any big lottery winner.

      Tell EVERYONE about Christmas Bytes... then tell them again!!
      Thanks.

      I'd love to see this KS make it and reap the rewards of a movie about my favorite time of year - game consoles at Xmas :)
