@jonoabroad I know. :) Standard practice is to allow 5% of accounts receivable for bad debts etc. 1.7% is good.

“Update 8 - Wow, we not only hit the stretch goal, but exceeded it” pozible.com/project/197649…

via TweetDeck

Of the $7235 pledged, only $125 of your cards bounced. 1.7% is pretty good, but sort it or I’ll start naming names.

via TweetDeck

No, @jplonie. Public House Forum, not Bath House Forum. Maybe next time.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jplonie

In return, you get two podcast episodes: the Public House Forum, plus one that’s essentially an hour of explicit-language ranting.

via TweetDeck

Short version, tho, is that you’ve funded a max-spec MacBook Pro plus kit for 5- or 6-person live location recording. Thank you!

via TweetDeck

So from here, I’ll email a quick update to people now, saying what I just said, and I’ll look at it fresh in the morning.

via TweetDeck

All figure there are approximate, because I suspect I have made mistakes in my data entry, and people were emailing changes.

And if you recall, an Apple employee of my acquaintance got me a 15% discount (already in the revised budgets).

via TweetDeck

As I mentioned in an update earlier today, I’ll hit my suppliers with an RFQ. They may well give me A Good Deal.

via TweetDeck

So, from here, with ~30mins remaining, another $250 makes it a 6-poerson rig, or $550 adds a Zoom Q8 video camera. Or something.

via TweetDeck

The next time I do this, I am so automating the guts of these updates, because I’m getting very confused right now.
