And if by Christmas he still hasn't one, we should all pitch in on a
HK Bixler for him!!

I wanted to vote for the condition that you would achieve as fast as possible but because I´m not sure whether you´re gonna keep posting or not (I actually wanted to vote for the 400 comments) I thought I´ll give you time to christmas.

You could also quickly open up 68 new threads and there you have your bixler, so christmas was the option to go.

That's why it's not good to make the number of posts look important. (so far I'm the person with most posts on the forum, but it's not because I know more than anyone else, it's because I'm spending all day on the forum)

If you go to my profile, and click About Me, you can see that my "Posts per day" rating is around 21... which, considering my actual number of posts, gives the following calculations:

45 posts to get to 400. 45 / 21 = about two days...
145 posts to get to 500. 145 / 21 = about a week...
645 posts to get to 1000. 645 / 21 = about a month...
till the end of the year = two and a half months... Which is the most reasonable option...

Where are you in Ecuador? I know folks there in Quito. There are also folks headed that way every few months from the USA on Medical Mission Trips.

I live in a small town called Portoviejo. It's 8 hours away from Quito by bus. But I suppose your friends have loads of medicals stuff already... I don't think it would be nice to ask them to bring a plane... just my opinion... Are they the UNICEF guys?

I have buddies that go to the states once in a while. I'll check with them.

Ha! I was thinking about sending Colorex a couple of sheets of foam and some electronics this morning. I like this kid. He is hyper focused and motivated!

Colorex-does Fed-ex or UPS deliver in your town?

Really? :O Thanks everyone for your generosity!
You really don't have to! :)
I don't know about FedEx or UPS, but normal (registered) mail should work.
Less than $400 worth and less than 4kg should not pay customs. I don't know how they treat batteries or electronics... I do know that you must write in big red letters FRAGILE or it will arrive in bad condition.

In any case, if you're really sure you want to send me something, PM me and I'll give you the details.

Thanks again, I'm really surprised!
