It's normal ours for us europeans :-)
I'll never be awake for it, but i hope everything goes alright!
is it going to happen on our shift?
Well, got insomnia tonight anyways, might as well stick around to see it hit the mark.
YES! SO EXITED LET'S DO THIS! ONE HUNDRED MILLION! (I'm Australian and it's 22:17 here anyway).
Caffeine is your friend in instances like this.
Not so late over here in the Philippines! :P
Eeeyup, what StrangeNoise said :P
I mean, I'm in hawaii. It's going to happen at 3 in the morning. I have school tomorrow... I'll never witness a big turnover...
I know that feel, Seth.
There is a whole continent of bronies on the other end of dat ocean, remember?
the real question is, is it going to reset to zero or is it already coded for the next digit?
The same thing will happen as always, i'll wait for it and something will dstract me for two minutes and i'll miss it.
@StrangeNoise I hope for the later, as a reset to 0 feels like a reset more than a big milestone.
Going to be at college waiting for my lesson to start when it hits 100M. This is the WORST possible thing!
11:20 am over here in the UK, I'm waiting on the moment ^_^
Haha yeah; have you guys addressed the Y100,000K issues?
@StrangeNoiseIt's always scaled up a number on earlier occasions. I don't see why issues would appear this particular time.
Oh mah Gawd...
crazy times? it's noon
First time I'm happy to live in the Netherlands :D
In during eurofriend hour :DQuick, Seth, post more Trixie facepalms.
Holy one million!
I hope I'll be conscious to see it...
The sun hasn't even been raised were I'm at, but I'm not going to to miss this.
@Celestia Just like what happens to me every day. ^^
I hope it's there in four and a half hours...
7:30pm over here. I'm settling in for the long haul.
At this rate I don't think it'll take that long
Oh wow yeah; We're almost at 100 million. Thanks for reminding me!...Aw, but now I've got to go to school. :(maybe when I get back?... Darn it! I wanted to screencap this!
@CelestiaY u no suspect Trolluna yet?
HUZZAH!! TRIXIE DOESN'T ENJOYS THIS!! MY FUN HAS BEEN DOUBLED!!
I acctually thought I was gonna miss it due to sleep... but now I see that I will be in just in time for it to happen!
Being in Australia has its benefits :D
Sleep? What is that? I'm doing pony-related things 24/7.
It's so close! I've been watching since 99900000. I can't wait!!
I can't tell if my counter is accurate or not, it updates even when not connected to the internet!
Looks like I'll be up when it hits, finally something good coming out of being in NZ :]
Also, when did the new comment layout happen?
It's probably going to happen in plain daylight here :3 Let's try to screencap this :D
Aw jeez. This is awesome, but I'm gonna be at school when it happens.I'm just gonna guess the time that it hits 100 mill during the school day. And then at that assumed time, I will silently cheer to myself and send an imaginary chill down my spine. Can't wait :D
6:45 AM over here. I'm particularly interested in how the meter continues to function after the 100 million milestone has been reached. Can it handle nine figures, or will it just derp out on us, going back down to 0? We're about to find out.
I'm happy I'm taking the day off today. I was hoping that the counter wouldn't hit 100 mil while I was asleep but it turned out not to.
Ok guys, everyone just stop viewing this website for a couple of hours so we can get this to happen in the afternoon when everyones there for it.
I'm gonna try and catch it! /)^3^(\
Ive been waiting for this momemnt for like 3 weeks now xD
It'll probably happen while I'm in school sadface. Happy milestone!
@cornllama Good idea... I'll be back on here at around 9 AM EST to see how everything is. Hopefully we'll be at 100M by then, and the meter will continue to function properly.
it should hit 100m at around 12 pm PST :D yay maths
Greetings from Germany! It's one a clock in the afternoon.
please hit the mark after 3 hours and 5 minutes, I'll be on again by then
This is like a New Year's countdown for us.
I really hope I don't sleep through the 100M mark. Just in case that happens congrats everypony in advance.
I'll be working and the counter doesn't show up when I view the webpage on my iPhone. ;A;
It's currently 8pm here where I am. I am in the optimum position to capture this glorious moment in EqD history.
Well horse apples, I guess I'm probably not gonna be up despite being in Australia. Oh well, happy 100M everypony. (It's like a holiday or something)
I'm afraid I might be in school by then. :<Curse you high school for starting an hour earlier than all the other schools below you!
I just calculated the speed and we are going to hit the 100 mil mark in roughly 6.8 hours from now.
Less than 61000 views left. What I shame I won't be able to be on when it happens.
I have a dozen or so EqD pages refreshed at different times, to see the million mark hit many times :D
so...the portal to equestria will open when it reaches 100million right...?
So everypony knows, this blog gets an average of 356 page views per minute, the counter on the right only goes up at 100 page views per minute.The 356 statistic has also probably gone up, I haven't recalculated in since November...
The Hour is neigh, Y212K! Pony apocalypse! Crazy gibberish comments!
it's seems i'm going to be in school when it reach the mark.
Crazy hours? Every time when there is an important discussion here, it's 3-4am where I live and can't really participate in it. Like the one about Hasbro's letter. That sucks!Anyway, waiting for Mando's song celebrating 100M
Being in the UK has it's benefits. Got the rest of the day off so better not miss this.
Wow. It feels like Y2K. ITS THE END OF THE WOOORLD
omg 6:40am here, hurry up!!
@TenToo right lol.
It's definitely not crazy hours on my end. Though maybe it was crazy of me to try to stay up. Last thing I remember, the keyboard suddenly got bigger...
@BecausePoniesAs we know it I feel fine.
Aw... counters going up slower than I expected, looks like I won't be seeing it after all :(Pre happy 10 million everypony!
@Eric The animation for the counter only moves at 100/sec but the actually counting keeps up. Remember what number it is and refresh the page and you will get the actual number.
50,000 more page views left to go till EqD reach 100000000! O_o
You say 100 million hits, I say 0.1 billion. Much more impressive sounding. ;)
99900000 already? It feels like it just hit 80000000 yesterday!Will the internet explode when it hits 100 million?
@herpyderpyIt's 100 million.
@herpyderpyDerp typo, I meant 100 million!
Remember that the actual number can go up faster than the ghetto counter on the right side of the page. If you refresh your page, that counter will probably jump up. Rather than have the counter constantly using bandwidth to get the real actual value, the counter only updates on page refresh, when it's left unattended it just tries to guess the traffic I think.
i wish i wouldn't have to be in school for this. oh happy day, though! *yay*
this is a glorious moment for EQD!
It's settled. We hold the world ransom for *ZOOM*100 Million Pageviews!
this is gonna be awesome, i wonder what type of celebration artwork we'll have this time around.
Just chillin here in UTC+1. Being here when it happens ain't gonna be a problem.
Crazy hours for crazy numbers, I always say!(for a given value of always being always for MLP blogs hitting 100 million hits)
I'm at school most likely fail a quiz to be here :D has it happens yet?
Should be about 1:05 am in Australia when we hit 100mil
we can celebrate with an awesome video about it ^^
Can someone record it when it reaches the 100 Million mark when it happens? I'm afraid I won't be here to see it. :(
Germany is perfect in Time^^ it will most likely happen in about 2 hours or so its 14:57 :D
I have internet at work, and they're pretty cool about me surfing during work hours. I'll just keep this page open.
@NickviciousUnfortunately, that will be impossible, because the counter will stop ticking up at 99,999,999. To get a nine-digit number, you'll have to refresh the page, and by the time you do, it'll already be past the 100 million mark.
It's 1AM over here.I'm deciding on whether to stay up or go to bed and wake up in the morning to find the milestone broken, which has been the same for every other milestone. *facehoof*
@FlutterguyI'm sure you mean 100 page views per minute, and yes, that's right. But I've just redone the calculations here, and for the past two months, Equestria Daily has been getting an average of 365.5 page views per minute.I'm guessing it'll hit 100 million around 8:20 am blog time, if not earlier.
The problem is that there are lots of us who live somewhere opposite US
Bwuahahaha!Im just up insanely late Seth...dun worry, your late night/WAY too early morning isnt shared alone!
I'm definitely far more excited about this than I should be. Alas, as others, stuck in school. Oh vell.
It won't be long, now! :D
*fluttershy cheer* yay!
Well, I guess we'll be hitting 100 million pretty soon. Time to look at EqD in school again
@Spikely Whiplash...Well, dang, how are we gonna record the moment for posterity? :|
Just 20.000 more hits...
Im in school right now, but ill TAKE the grade for this!O,0
I can see my schedule somehow giving me only one late afternoon class onMondays and Wednesdays is ALREADY starting to show the first of its many, many potential benefits.
Man, you guys are going to hit 100 million while I'm at school... I'm going to miss the whole thing. :( Well, preemptive congrats to EqD as it is!
100 million views? A SMALL STEP IN OUR PLAN FOR WORLD DOMINATION!
Yay for winter break allowing me to stare at my computer for the next hour! Can't miss 100 million.
Oh goodie, I didn't miss it.
@Eric Yes, per minute, now I just feel stupid.
@cheezesauseWorld domination is a bad idea.Instead lets all get together and watch ponies. :3
99,985,478 and counting...
The Great and Powerful Facehoof!(yay I haven't missed it)
@Victory StarHow about Pony World Domination? sounds better?
@ cheeze saucesounds awesome. Im on bord!In french now! Cmon million!
Of course we have to hit million marks!
Great, I thought I was going to miss it while I slept, but it still has a bit of time.
Maybe we'll get 100 mill cutie marks! XD
How does this hit counter work anyway? I know it's not real time, because there's no data traffic between the server and my browser while it's counting. Does it just estimate a count based on the hit rate for the last few minutes?Either way, I wonder if the code can handle 100,000,000. Will it add another digit gracefully? Or roll back to 00000000 and make us refresh? THE WORLD WILL KNOW SOON.
@zorinlynxRead the earlier posts.The counter goes up consistently at 100 page view per minute, regardless of the number of page views the blog is actually getting.
Is anyone else spamming refresh just to make the count go faster? XD
whoop nevermind! i'm in computer class right now, anxiously waiting for the internet's birthday present. the universe loves me, see. it's snowing and EQD has 10,000 left. *pure bliss*
I slept in one hour shifts to make sure I won't miss it so I cant wait to see
@MentiThat is my MO atm^^
Since I live in the southern hemisphere, I'm actually on summer vacation right now, so I'll be awake and free to observe this!
You all know that the counter is too slow, right? If you have looked at it for some time, and then refresh the page, it will dramatically increase. That way, many people will see the turnover at different times! :P(And I don't know if this has been mentioned before, haven't read all the comments)
Thats why you refresh, refresh, refresh!
@Greenie-Pie Yeah, and that way it will hit 100,000,000 faster too! :P
c'mon less than 7000
I will put all the refreshing practice I got from Homestuck to good use.
Onehundred million inbound!
OHHH this is so exciting :3
Soon:O just over 5000 to go!
Quick! Get the pony with the refresh cutie mark! Its the only hwhay.O,0
I feel like this is a fitting video to have going in the background while waiting for this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXpauql2lqM&feature=related
4000! Oh man I have to leave in a few minutes, I'm totally going to just miss it D:
Anyone else getting their print screen buttons ready ? :D
so we have like 1k views every 3 minutes now?
Anyone can do 100mill. I'm going for a couple others.
@PhantomBadger YES, SIR! also, i'm mashing F5 about as fast as it'll go
Woooh. Cheerin from school for the 100 million! Here we go here we go!!! Let's PAR-TAY!
It's happening right now! 1-2 min to go!
Obtain ALL the hits!O0/
IT'S GOING TOO FAAAAAST!
1000 LEFT OHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSH
1k more! ALMOST THERE!
We're at about 99,999,000 at this moment. By the time I send this message, it will be at around 99,999,500.
I hope seth aint asleep still..
....and that's it!!!100 MILLION PAGEVIEWS! WOOOOOT!Someone get Pinkie and tell her to load her party cannon! It's time to paaaar-tay!
