Counting to a million online

Freakish? Weird? Sad? Who knows, but it's the sort of thing that the Internet is brilliant at. Mad cap ideas becoming a reality. These guys have set up a site called millioncount.com and are streaming the act of counting to one million live on the Internet. For more details about why see here. Amazingly the guy counting does have a girlfriend who is, apparently, very patient. They expect the whole thing to take about 3-4 months and he's currently at about 142000.

Dizzy, thanks.

I was wrong. my immediate thought was he is selling the numbers in batches of a thousand, like the guy who sold the million pixels.

However, half of all money raised will go to charity? Am I just getting too cynical? I blame BBB, Blair, Brown, Bush.
