Z-Day Update!

We've hit 9 days and counting to Z-Day so here's a little update on the situation as it is. There's really just a few things to go over so this won't be too longwinded, I hope.

First is that we've made some minor changes to the gaming schedule, but nothing terrible. Closer to the marathon we'll be posting up on the sidebar the games and their estimated run times so you can compare the estimate to the actual run time. We'll also be keeping track of deaths over there as well. But anyway! Here's the altered schedule (which isn't really all that altered)!
The Legend of Zelda: Steve
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link: Cornshaq
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past: Mark
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening: Jerry
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time: Jerrod
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask: Tailz64
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons: Ian
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages: Tailz64
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker: Josh
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap: Jerry
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess: Steve
The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventure: Blind run by random players

The second order of business is that we've got a bit of swag to give away to people that donate, and some swag to mail off from a previous marathon (for which we are terribly sorry for the unacceptably long delay in getting that out. It'll be in the mail soon for those of you that know who you are). We'll have pictures of the prizes up soon, and we might just find some more at the last minute before the marathon. Who knows? You'll need to show up to find out!

The last order of business! Over there in the sidebar, underneath the ChipIn (first of all you should click on the ChipIn and donate some money to Doctors Without Borders, because that would make you an awesome person and you want to be an awesome person, right?) there are three buttons, right? There's a link to the Digg article, which you should click on and digg the marathon at least once, but maybe even twice or more if you feel like making--or you have--multiple Digg accounts. There's also a link to the Reddit article, which you should also click on and up vote the marathon at least once, but maybe even more if you've got multiple accounts or feel like making more than one. Finally there's a link to our N4G tip, which you will need to log into N4G before clicking on. It'll take you to the vote page so you can vote for the tip. If we get 10 votes they'll do a story on the marathon and if we get a lot more than 10 votes we might even get on N4G's front page. So go! Click on those links! Help the marathon effort out!

That's pretty much everything. See you all March 5th.
