YOUR HANDY GUIDE TO ONLINE FUNDRAISING
All of Jake Ryan’s beer cash has been posted via registered mail to Ryan HQ in sunny Queensland. For anyone else attempting an online Beer Fund, here’s how the process works:
First, get your message out on the global Interblogwebnet.
Wait a few minutes, and ... wa-hey! Actual cash money appears on the keyboard somehow.
David Marr is impressed.
Carefully place the money in an envelope and address it to “Jake, Queensland”. It's that easy!
UPDATE. Just as well Jake has a home.

Yeah, but what's the giant knife next to your laptop for?
Er ... it's for ... cake! Yes, that's it. I was eating cake.
You have pretty money in Oz.
Gary: It's made of plastic, too.
Actually, your monry looks like Monopoly(TM) money. Don't tell me, you live on Baltic Avenue, right?
We're lacking on pretty people though...
I love the look of the Australian bills, but the coins, aka shrapnel, is too bulky and heavy.
Kinda reminds of Dutch guilders, which were a damn shame to lose to the bland euro.
The Queensland government should shout a round.
I can't see the pretty money. I've been blinded by that shirt!
As my English friends call them: Yellow Drinking Vouchers.
We have pretty money here also,
However we have no pretty men to spend them on.
You have 2 pretty men on your site.
Please share one of them,
we will return them when we have extraced
love serium and chromosome sample to help our
My sisiter Wanda say "Hi" !
Posting that much cash in the mail? Even I dont have that much faith in my postal system.
Of course it probably just seems alot to me cause I'm from NZ.
The money's not as pretty as that shirt, Tim what were you thinking? Or were you in Bali tourist mode? :) Love David Marr's cameo, and the use of an iBook. More multimedia blogging!
Yes the $50s look like Guilders, ahh it's time to go back to Holland...
It's fine to send cash via registered mail.
That's not real money. That's Australian money, I think.
Hasn't anyone noticed the true importance of this post?: Blair has actually put *photos* up on his blog.
Hey, wait -- those are Dutch Gilders! Must've had the computer set to "drugs and prostitution" mode.
Hey, Tim's shirt matches the Australian money...
That's one impressive shirt, Tim.
No offence Tim, but you're geekier looking than I'd imagined :)
That was just an excuse to show us how many $50 bills that you have.
The month's rent money, if you must know, Dan. I don't have 'em any more!
Not sure about the shirt, but his lipstick is a lovely shade ...
No more photos please. My eyes, my eyes, aaaaagh.
Buy tim a new shirt fund! http://yobbo.drivelwarehouse.com/archives/003502.html
Geez, Tim. Are you getting ready for your Hawai'ian vacation with that shirt and all that funny money?
Hey, lookit all the Monopoly Money!...
That's you Tim? Odd, I thought you'd look like a cross between Ed Burke and a young Thos Hobbes with a bit of Shane MacGowan thrown in. I mean that as a compliment, by the way.
I hate to say it Tim, but I think you got ripped off. That doesn't look like real money there, I think someone sent you a bunch of monopoly money or something.
Doesn't matter if they sent him clam shells... The important thing here is that said pieces of plastic can be exchanged for beer.
There's not a damn thing wrong with that beautiful shirt. What's the matter with you people? Have you no STYLE?!?!
Oh my god. How dare you criticise Mike Moore for the way he looks. You are... hmmm... maybe i shouldn't stoop to your level.
let's just say you wouldn't look out of place at a star trek convention.
What is this "Star Trek" people speak of?
Star Trek=a watery elixer (think Near Beer) in which American lefties (and lefties around the world one supposes) drown their sorrows.
