This project was successfully funded on June 30, 2009.
A few quick notes now that I've reached my goal:
1) Whooo-hooo! Oh, I said that.
2) Answering an inevitable question right now: Can you contribute, and get the puzzles, even though I've already met my goal? Sure thing. In fact, for every extra $1000 I raise, I'll add another prize when I finally run this contest.
3) I can't figure out how to edit my project -- I don't think I can, actually -- so I'll say this here: The $100 bonus is closed. I've got five custom crosswords to make and that is plenty. (I know, it says four. One person didn't get counted, I don't know why.) Yes, I should have limited it to five in the first place, and I didn't. Why? Because I didn't think ANYBODY was going to pony up that much dough. Now I've got to shut the door on that one -- sorry. If you throw in $100, I will contact you and give you the opportunity to take it back.
4) I've already started the crosswords, of course. I'm still gunning to get them out in mid-September. Thanks to everyone who contributed, and everyone else who might.
