Man, the average pledge on Day 1 was like $120. It wasn't the DRM backlash, it was just that Tex's fanbase is small but very passionate, and they gave immediately and generously. That momentum was never sustainable. This will be a long, difficult campaign, like we all knew it would, and we're going to have to work our asses off to promote and get the word out to people.

We need $10,000 a day from now until the end of the campaign. That's doable, it's doing way more than that right now.
