BerserkerDay in Forbes magazine (and elsewhere!)

I love this feature from Katie Kelly Bell - she was so much fun to talk with, and I know she'll be hanging around on BerserkerDay

Ugh, the t-shirts. I put out a survey, ordered based on that, now I have 100 extra t-shirts! Might have to do something with that on BerserkerDay, plus learn my lesson

... it won't crash! Ed Murray has helped tremendously, and we've done a lot of upgrades to the server and software last year, if you recall

I think we're just a TINY fraction fewer people on BerserkerDay than Amazon Prime day - like 10 fewer. Should be safe.

Funny to see how many new friend requests on Facebook I'm getting now...

Do you remember when....






... the Berserker Day website didn't crash from all the people?!
... you could actually win a Berserker Day auction?!
... Todd was just a guy like the rest of us?!

Great job, Todd! champagne.gif
... it won't crash! Ed Murray has helped tremendously, and we've done a lot of upgrades to the server and software last year, if you recall
... you will if you try! Please DO try!
... and I am just that.
Ed is a multi talented dude.

Please stay on the lawn and bring your wine buddies, dammit!

Congrats, once again. I guess "Big Time Todd" is an appropriate moniker, or perhaps just "BT"

I have more one owner Napa classics in bottle and mag lined up and a couple of cellar candy stragglers from the Davis Cellar, assuming I am worthy of participating once again, blunders and all.

Kinda surly with the press, though. And he sure does hit into a lot of double-plays! [wow.gif]

Any new signups/friend requests from NBA players? Asking for a Fu......I mean friend.

Seriously, congrats on the shoutout from Forbes!

Not Forbes, but another little mention in Orange Coast Magazine just 'hit the shelves' on the interwebz: (interestingly, this was NOT related at all to the PR campaign - the author simply remembered BerserkerDay from years past!)
