So here we are, a few hours away from the end of this “going full-time with Daring Fireball” celebratory membership drive, and the graph looks like this:
I swear, with no fudging at all, it’s one pixel short of my goal. 97 percent of the way there — that’s pretty good. It’s close enough that I’ll almost certainly go over in the next week or so with additional t-shirt sales after the close of the membership drive. But it’d be nice to get that pixel and hit the goal before the drive officially closes.
My thanks to everyone who’s signed up so far, including all the people who’ve joined in the last few days. You can see from the graph there’s been a nice little boost this week.
Update, Saturday Morning — Made it:
I’ve gotten a bunch of questions about details regarding the shirts. The “classic” (charcoal) and “Your PC is a POS” (black) are both Gildan Ultra Cotton Heavyweight #2000 shirts. These shirts are sized identically to Hanes Beefy Tees (which means they run a bit big):
The “I✪DF” shirts are Anvil Heavyweight Cotton Ringer Tees. I don’t have exact sizing information, but to my eyes they’re very similarly sized to the Gildans. If they’re not exactly the same size, they’re close.
The designs on all three shirts are screenprinted.
