Greetings! I am dwangoAC, keeper of TASBot and I lead teams of people making TAS (Tool-Assisted Speedrun) content for charity at events like Games Done Quick. I am a Twitch Partner at Twitch.tv/dwangoAC and a YouTube Partner at YouTube.com/dwangoAC where I respectively stream and post TAS console verification content. In 2019 alone I've led teams that have helped raise over $280k for charities including Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. In addition to leading the TASBot community I'm also the President of the North Bay Linux Users' Group, Founder of ToolAssist, L3C, and on staff as the Ambassador of TASVideos.org.

My goal is to give you, my Patrons, value for any support you can provide. I can assure you it's appreciated; I was $15k out of pocket from attending charity events when I was unexpectedly laid off and I've decided to investigate the possibility of working on TASBot content full time. Going full time is a stretch goal that will take a huge number of Patrons, so in the meantime my goal is to offset the costs of attending charity events including the equipment used to prepare content for them.

If you've never heard of TASBot, he's best described as a mascot of a vibrant community of content creators and hackers that I (dwangoAC) lead. TASBot plays games on original unmodified video game consoles perfectly - so perfectly that we often take over the entire console. We've pulled off all kinds of silly hijinks like Pokemon Plays Twitch where we connected an SNES console to the internet and turned it into a Twitch chat client. It's content that's unlike anything else on the internet and I'd value any support you'd be willing to provide. Thanks!

Goals
$440 of $500 per month
Attending events like Games Done Quick and European Speedrunning Assembly takes about $3k per event of total travel costs. If I can hit this goal I'll be able to cover costs to bring TASBot to two major remote charity events per year. Thanks!
