We baked the cake already. Anything else is just icing. Nothing wrong with making a goal of 4 tubes of icing but only making it to 2.

If you catch my meaning.

What is the official cut-off point for the fundraiser?
That is, the point at which donations will no longer affect the thermometer?
Does one assume that at midnight on March 31st (your time) the fundraiser total will become 'fixed'?

I think we should call the fundraiser over around midnight on April 1st, New York time.
(that is, it will go 24 hours into April by the NY time clock).

Good idea, that'll catch all those last minute donations from those of us in *other* time zones... smiley

don't be silly, you can only get a bailout if you destroy a few hundred thousand people's lives while you conduct financial fraud and engage in criminally reckless behavior in a pursuit of absolute greed.

We haven't tried that approach yet, how about we register "destructioncoder.com" and get started?
