Well, I don't think the race went as we might have hoped
, but it was worth the pennies. I'd like to take just a minute to congratulate Helios. Yes that's right, Helios raised 20K (I can't recall the exact amount right off, but estimation won't hurt nothing). Even though FUD was dropped in, controversy started, and fists were seemingly about to fly... Helios stuck to his honesty, and raised what he could through all of that. Helios has always been a good friend to me over several years, and when I saw his post about raising money for a tux500, I knew for sure that the money raised was going to get there.
So, now in the end, I am pleased that the actual proof is now available for everyone to see. Helios, needs to pat himself on the back, not just for yet another great donation raising effort into what he believes in, but for sticking it out as , for the first time ever, FUD and controversy were implanted.
I know without that crap getting in the way, there most likely would have been a lot more donations, but there wasn't, and yet what donations that did come in, was quite impressive. So to all those that were opposed to it,, I'd say now is the time to draw your tails back between your legs, and sit back down until you're asked to get up
In the future it will be quite difficult to attempt to sabotage fund raising lead by our good friend Helios, based on the proof at hand.
