At 2350 AEDT it’s still $1505.77, but I think there’s some lag in this financial data flow. Goddammit.

@dobes @SnarkyPlatypus I will visualise that later, once I’ve digested the fact that it’s now a 3-hour livestream.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

At 2345 AEDT the total is now $1505.77, so that’s a 3-hour livestream. With 15 minutes to go, can there be another $500 for a fourth hour?

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I’ll count down the total for the last 15 minutes from 2345 AEDT every five minutes.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I must admit, it’s classy to contribute $114.77 to leave it 33 cents short. I love you people.
