Last call! We'll probably hit the 965k mark early Friday morning, so get those guesses in before it'* too late.

If you submitted an entry but don't see it above, let me know. My spam filter might have swallowed it.

So, what to make of the entries? There is quite a range of guesses. We have optimists like Jwakamud, whose guess would require an average of 7000 posts per day to be met, all the way down to Sqela, whose guess would require about 200 posts per day.

We've been averaging about 654 post per day for the last few weeks. If that rate continues, we'll hit the million mark around December 19th.

Stay tuned!

Jeff

Hrmmm... That was weird, for some reason i remember figuring on 700 posts a day, but still came up with the 12/25, i wonder how that happened, unless i did it for 600 and didnt remember it
