Default Post number 1,000,000: when? [Contest]

Hey guys-

We're fast approaching the millionth post on Bonneville Club. Wow! Here'* my challenge to you: Predict when post number 1,000,000 will occur. The person closest to the correct time wins a prize!

We're currently at 951,650 posts. The contest will stay open until 965,000 posts; watch for a post here with all of the guesses when it'* closed.

Rules are minimal: one guess per person, and don't artificially manipulate the post count.

Send your guesses to [email protected] . Guesses should include your username, the year, month, day, and time (central). THE SUBJECT OF YOUR MESSAGE MUST BE "Contest" OR IT WILL BE DELETED.

Good luck!

Jeff

This should be fun......and tricky.

To put everyone on equal footing (which means to take away the advantage of those Staff members who know how to find the stats), here'* a little past data.

Not sure it'll help you, but it also MIGHT hurt you:

Name:  stats.jpg
Views: 1
Size:  99.7 KB
(Keep in mind there are a TON of variables that go into this, and a significant amount of unpredictability)

I'll make my guess through another semi-scientific method, not this data. But I might come back and use this to double-check myself.

Since I'm away from home at the Wren residence and do not have access to my E-mail account, I will give my guess to Bill to send you thru his Email.

Hope that'* OK.

Perhaps a list of screennames can be posted of users that have submitted a guess, just for confirmation? I am paranoid like that :(
