CES: Charity PC race, live video stream

LAS VEGAS — A test of my capacity for humiliation — the Charity PC Race — should be broadcast live on the link below starting just before 7 p.m.

Dozens of journalists participate in the race to see who can assemble a new PC the fastest. The winner gets to donate $10,000 to a charity of choice, and all the PCs are donated to charities helping children (after the systems are rebuilt by sponsor Systemax).

This year the system I’m building will be donated to the Yesler Terrace Youth Tutoring Program, if I ever get it done.
