It's like the telethon on PBS. The sooner the goal is reached, the sooner the regular programming returns.

Default Average donation? Standard deviation?

At some point, I fully expect to see statistics for the average donation, median, highest, lowest, and standard deviation.

Why? Contributors donated whatever they felt comfortable with. Contributions both large and small were/are greatly appreciated.

Perhaps because it would be a mathy thing to do and this is a mathy group.
The last donation total posted missed by $0.12 being a prime number of cents.

Are you volunteering? (George could send the numerical data, sans identities. His time and rare talent is better spent on prime95 enhancements and maintenance than on statistics many of us could crank through. Max, min, median, mean, std dev, charts, all readily available to a decent spreadsheet jockey.)
