I'm half tempted of actually waiting to finish counting to see what happens.

If I let this run through to the end it blows up my computer, right? Cool.

QP, I don't recall if it is standard Lorem Ipsum, but if it is, it is a paraphrasing of something like "Neither is there anyone who loves pain itself since it is pain and thus wants to obtain it" which is relevant in this case. No need to thank me.

Fiery deaths?

Measured not very carefully I estimate it would take around 20 hours to run up a million. If somebody likes round figures maybe it actually runs a full day.

This is a problem that distributed computing would do very well with.

31d1: my girl was stuck with something from her job and in a lousy mood, working in a separate computer. I sent her the link through msn and she burst out laughing, so thank you for that. Even if you get some heat for it, you did good in posting it.

Something about this makes me giggle. I liked it.

For the love of god, don't try to change th last word in the adress to cheat the system and get to a million.

Turns out is was "un million" as in one million in Spanish and not "un-million" as in not million. You will be redirected to porn.

I deserve more than a million, but I don't have time to hear them all.

I bailed out at 13,500. Here's the text you get when you exit:

This is the beginning of the greeting text, consecteteur adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquem erat aliquam erat volutpat. Ut wisi enimad jehnsdy 200 characters. Rud exerci tation ullamcorper suscipit lobortis nisl lut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis autem vel eum iriure dolor in henderit in vulputate velit esse molestie consequat, eut feugiat nulla facilisis at vero eros et accumsan et iustod odiodi this is end of sample greeting text, 500 characters.

It's one of the more corrupt variants of lorem ipsum I've seen.

Ambrosia Voyeur : "maybe i should rethink this membership."

If you're considering getting rid of your membership 4 or 5 days after getting it, I don't think "rethink" is the right word. "Rethink" means you've thought about it before, and being that quick to jump the train indicates you probably never actually thought in the first place.

If you click on the left hand side when you've "had enough" and then you get more thank you's anyway, the thank you counter doesn't start from where it left off. The counter says that there are about 150-200 more thank you's than when you left off. I wonder if you continued to do that, you could receive all one million in less than an unreasonable amount of time. Or maybe the program is just set to have the counter run even when they aren't saying thank you's.

bugbread: or that i can issue empty and overused threats to jokingly express disdain. it could mean that too. it probably does. *steps off lawn.*

I think you'll fit in just fine here.
posted by Astro Zombie at 5:37 PM on September 10, 2006


As best as I can figure out, the counter runs about 718 units per minute. If someone wanted to leave this running for about 23 hours and 12 minutes, they'd hit a million. Any takers?
posted by WCityMike at 9:24 PM on September 10, 2006


I waited for it and the counter does not stop at 1 million.

THANK YOU for posting this. I'm sitting in bed her on MeFi, and all of a sudden this comes up. I litterally had to lie down for a few minutes until i could regain control of my giggles and calm down enough to type this amazing reply. YOU DESERVE A MILLION THANK-YOUS FOR POSTING THAT.
ps i'm at 4000
posted by alona at 9:45 PM on September 10, 2006


It's been running on this computer for about 8 hours, and the muted count is at about 341,000. I'll keep the window open to get a rough estimate of the time required.

Is the counter actually counting their thank-yous? It seems to be going up a little to fast and far to steadily. Thanks Thanks Thanks

Astro Zombie - Try here. Six million and counting.

It doesn't actually stop at one million... I woke up this morning to 1,063,889 thank yous.
