    Maximumfun,

    According to my unofficial tally, you'll probably be the closest of all.

    It looks like it may hit 2.5M some time tomorrow or the next day. At least from what I saw among all the guesses, you'll be the winner, although if it comes really soon, then Haymaker's original guess may be just as close.

    His guess would be 5 days early and yours would be 5 days late if it happens tomorrow.  How funny would it be for the hours and/or minutes to become the tiebreaker?

        Exactly - you need a couple of low-post days to win it all.

        But it could be a photo finish.

        Pretty cool.

          I was way off in my estimate from yesterday.  It looks like it won't happen for at least another week, so it looks like you'll still be in the running along with me and a few others that guessed mid-July.

                  Those dates, data strings and times in the databases, must be having a grand ol' time gettin ready to pop their corks!  Party

                  I might just consider bringing another date to the big shin dig as well. The more the merrier?  Group Hug

                   

                  Yeah the binary code for my date prediction is 010100011110011. She's real pretty lookin', don't you think? Hippy

                    Why not?  Absolutely you can.

                    It's about to hit 2.49M so it'll soon be in the Dick Clark countdown zone.  But there's still plenty of time for more guesses.  As the barkers would say, "Step right up, folks, step right up, let's see if you have the lucky numbers."

                    There might be a fair number of LP denizens playing combinations of whatever those numbers wind up being for date/time.  Lotto Commissions everywhere would be puzzled why so many people won at the same time with some combinations if they actually hit.  Now that would be funny to watch unfold.

                      I suppose it COULD still be today (07/11) if 10k posts happen today... (i wonder how long it will take me to post 10,000 times today???)

                        You might have done it if you had put each word, or even better each letter, in its own post.

                        Here's an unofficial (I think I got them all) tally of the guesses that extend out from today :

                        Max - 07/11

                        McGinn - 7/13

                        Me - 7/17

                        Blackie - 7/19

                        Night - 7/20

                        Marcie - 7/25

                        Max2 - 8/23

                        Max, I like how you have two thoroughbreads in this race, one on the inside and one on the outside.  You've got the field bracketed nicely.

                            Epistrophy,

                            Thanks for making that tally, still 8g posts to go.

                             

                            Just now recovered internet @ home, any posts I made in the last 11 days were done at work,

                            and went w/out electric over 5 days, now seriosly considering a emergency generator.

                              You're very welcome.

                              If electric outages are going to be that serious, a generator sounds like a good plan.  I'm not sure whether we're allowed to name companies like this here, but in case it helps you or anyone else that may need one, years ago I researched it and found that Northern Tool had a large selection at good prices online.

                              We got an 8 kW generator for the office a decade ago when California was going through rolling blackouts and it worked nicely.  You need to get a good electrician to install your transfer panel, though.  It's kind of fun to have all the power out, fire up the generator and hit the Frankensteinian switch on the transfer panel while saying, "It is alive!"
