Anyone else have this problem?

Nah. I made a widget that auto updates the current total. It even sends me a text message when we're within $500 of the next stretch goal.

I'll be putting a version of it up on our front page in the next day or two.

Maaybee...

But it's not like I'm addicted or anything. I can stop looking anytime I want to... Uh... Sorry, I gotta go check on something totally unrelated.

You guys do know the Kickstarter page is AJAX based so it automatically updates. No needs for refreshes.

I really like Kit's widget. My phone always has the current total displayed, so I can do my day job and only have to refresh to answer comments.

The text when goal is approaching is nice, because it means if it's late at night and we're close-ish (happened 3 times so far!), I can go to bed, and wake up with a few minutes to get ungroggy so I can update the site.

I like updating.

Of course I update both Reaper and Red Box each time I update and then there is the comment and web site reading....I'm sure I'm supposed to be painting or something.

I've never done Kickstarter before this campaign. Lots of fun.

You mean like have it open, and watch it through out the day, and log the totals I see periodically in a spreadsheet so i can see just how how far it goes while I'm working?

No, No, I don't do that...

Really, I don't.

I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM!
