one dour badger
Last night I glanced at the Ron Paul campaign website, and noticed that they were running a fund-raiser for the final week of the quarter, hoping to make $500,000 so as to significantly outdo their donations from last quarter. They've got a flash counter running with the current tally, and it was at about $160k when I looked last night.

Now it's about to break $25 million.

Don't get me wrong, I love the guy. I even bought my very first "Vote For X" swag because of him. But I'm waiting to celebrate until it's confirmed that this isn't a software error!


EDIT: Confirmed that it was a glitch in the flash counter. The real value is $250k. I left the browser open from last night, and at some point overnight they changed it server-side to count pennies instead of dollars... after reloading, there's a decimal point now.

Still, halfway to the actual goal on Tuesday isn't bad. :D

Just looked...

...it's at $274,092.00 now.

Looks like there was a glitch that dropped the decimal-point and re-comma'd the rest of it that you ran into.

Re: Just looked...

No commas at all, actually. Refreshing the page gave me what you see. That makes a lot more sense. :D
