Things are going spectacularly well. I have to figure out, in fact, how to lift the "monthly limits" in the stupid PayPal account I set up so it can just get to him. I'd be happy to share the total as of this morning, but I don't know if that's correct or the right thing to do. While I do want to be the most transparent blogathon administrator in history, I want to respect whatever's left of Roy's privacy.
I also tried calling him to tell him about this, since it's entirely possible he doesn't know about it, but he didn't answer. Being the optimist, I assume he's not dead, so I just left a message. Which I'm sure came out weird.
Thanks to everyone who donated and thanks to TBogg and Scott at World O' Crap for helping to get the word out and anyone else who posted on it.
I'm still trying to figure out the "PO Box" dilemma, which may be resolved if and when Roy checks in. But it's been an amazing outpouring of generosity from the blog world.
UPDATE to the Update: James Wolcott and Tintin at Sadly, No have also answered the call.
