The PaulCash graphs (paulcash.slact.net) are projecting a $3.0 million day at the current rate of contributions, and given the $1.1 we've raised so far.

The east coast will be driving home from work soon. We have 7 full hours to go.

If we all get our friends, whoop it up -- $3 Million is DEFINITELY not out of the question.

Believe! And then work hard.

We can do it. All we need is a strong finish.

No. Be realistic. $2 million would be a success. I don't expect much more. Don't get your hopes up.

$2 is great -- but if we push -- and don't let up -- we can get to 3M... simply by having a strong night. Nothing miraculous, just sustained, focused work.

And I am being realistic. I'm not a 'get your hopes up' kind of guy (ask anybody here). The current projection by the PaulCash graphs, given the present rate of giving is $3.0M. That's not me. That's the numbers.

I believe we'll hit $3 Million today. Most who donate, aren't even home from work yet.

Work? I'm kinda outta touch with you 9 to 5'ers, since I'm my own boss and work at home; but isn't today a NATIONAL HOLIDAY? Who's working today?

I do think we can hit 3 million today. Remember the tea party, lots of people waited until late in the day to donate.

Well, I worked from home today myself. But most aren't like us. And no, most companies do not give MLK day as a paid holiday.

By most accounts, 67% of the workforce is on the job today.

Are you certain that they aren't projecting $3 million total for the quarter at the end of the day?

Okay.....this is getting a little creepy. The first couple times I just past it off as being a coincidence, but this is like the 5th time I have seen 666 in the numbers and I am not even watching the numbers very often. I'm not even religous. Is someone messing with us :eek: ?

$1,176,666.00

Isn't that an oxymoron?

That's the quarterly total for the end of the day. Which means the projection is $1.7 million if you factor in the fact that we started at about $1.3 million.
