We're at $330,000 now, about 10 AM EST. That's 14 hours of prime fundraising time and this thing is going geometric. So get out there and digg this story:

Write e-mails to editors, hit your friends and family up to donate online, post comments on blogs -- imagine the news it will make if RP hits his 7 day goal of half a mil in only 2 1/2 days!

LET'S DO THIS!!! :D :D :D

Slugg, In the first two days of this drive we took in 3200 online donations. By contrast, in the 85 days prior to that, we took in 27000 or so, or 317/day. This means that we're raising money at a rate ~5x faster in the last two days than during the quarter.

9:03 AM today -- $324,579
11:03 AM today -- $335,858

So that's about $5,700 per hour. At that pace we will have $410,000 by midnight tonight.

However, I expect that pace to pick up since the West Coast isn't quite up yet.

I still think 500K is doable by midnight EST tonight. This thing could explode today, feeding off itself.

I expect that this weekend will be the big days. People generally get paid on Thursday/Friday
