Three years ago today, RPad.TV launched. It has been an educational, wacky, and enjoyable ride. The site has grown a lot in three years and I’m grateful for all your support. To take RPad.TV to the next level, I’m asking for PayPal donations. Make a donation of $5 or more and I’ll send you an RPad.TV wristband (pictured above, thanks to RPadholic N8R). The free wristband offer is good while supplies last (don’t worry, I have hundreds) and will only be sent to U.S. readers (unless you donate a silly amount of money, in which case I’ll fly to you and give you your wristband personally).
Donations will be used for the following:
Server Upgrades: I’ve upgraded the server once to deal with increased traffic and the site has already outgrown that server. I plan on moving the site to a more expensive server for increased performance and reliability.
Event Travel: I’d love to serve up more original articles and videos from shows like CES, GDC, PAX, Comic-Con, etc. These shows are expensive to get to and attend. With some luck, I’ll be able to cover more of them for you.
New Gear: Should donations reach a ludicrous level, they’ll be used for new video gear and software.
If you’re unable to make a donation, there are plenty of ways you can help out RPad.TV.
Help spread the word about this fundraiser through social media. Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ posts of this page would be appreciated.
Buy something from Amazon.com. If you enter Amazon by clicking on the advertisement on the lower-left corner, I’ll get a small kickback.

Keep reading and commenting! The site is better when awesomely awesome people like you chat it up in the comments section.
Thanks so much for reading the site! It means a lot to me. I’ve learned so much from growing RPad.TV and it has been an extremely gratifying experience. There have been times when working on the site and hanging out with you guys in the comments section have kept me from going completely insane (I’m still two percent insane…most days). Thank you so much.
Now please join me in wishing RPad.TV a happy birthday. Three more years! Three more years! Three more years!!!
