Linkable graphs

Hooray for small messageboard-friendly graphs!

Donations Collected

Donation Rate

Donor Rate

Donation Size

Link to these all you want -- I have plenty of bandwidth to spare. These are tested and pretty much guaranteed to work and keep updating even through moneybombs.

Updates and Minibombs

I apologize for not keeping this blog up to date. This will be remedied. Meanwhile, I'm watching today's moneybomb. Keep the money coming!

I've also added a small feature: you can now choose if you want to see the time period and the units for which you wish to see statistics.

I've tweaked the grapher to remove outliers -- numbers that are way inconsistent with the rest, such as the Nov 5th rates -- from the daily averages. I think this provides a much more useful view - the average line on the daily graph now represents "an average day" -- since November 5th was anything but average, and it could be misleading to compare the donation rates of a plain non-moneybomb day with the average of every day, moneybomb or not.
Let me know what you think.

Counting Change

There isn't much I can say - the numbers speak for themselves.
39 thousand people gave Ron Paul $4 million. In 24 hours. Without a doubt, this is one for the record books. The White House suddenly seems not so far away...

I have put up a snapshot of the day, available here.

The Fifth of November

It has begun. In the first 20 minutes after midnight, Ron Paul raised his daily haul of $65000. It's 2:07 now, and it doesn't seem to be slowing down too much.
The donor rate is about 1000 per hour now, so there'll be plenty left to donate throughout the day. I expect we'll see another big spike in the morning, and a large hump around 5, when people return from work.
Here's to hoping for $3 million with change -- with the present rate, this is going to be a new record, if it already isn't one.
