He is right though.

So, here's the story... I said to my girlfriend that any stupid website could get tons of hits, simply because people are bored all the time

Counterpoint!

And funnily someone from work showed me that about 45 mins ago.

His counter is up 100,000 since I posted it an hour ago.

I guess it just snowballed.

She won't follow through on it, i'm sure.

Funko
27-04-2006, 15:41:35
Ah yes, wrong forum.

D'oh.

500K now and its going up about 100 hits per second.

Funko
27-04-2006, 15:48:57
Even if she doesn't follow up on it, he won't be an idiot.

oh hell yeah, it's always good to win a bet

It's amazing how fast these things can snowball.

looks like the counter is broken

Venom
27-04-2006, 16:26:43
The counter site has been crashed.

King_Ghidra
27-04-2006, 16:27:18
that's a moral victory at the very least

Venom

When they checks that counter again and see it's over 500,000 you're going to see the world's fastest backtracking.

I get the feeling that someone is hitting that site with a bot or some other kind of application.

27-04-2006, 16:53:13
hell, I would, if it got me a threesome

Venom
27-04-2006, 17:43:52
She didn't say they had to be unique. So why not?

fp

If he videos the threesome and sells it online it might help pay for the bandwidth. The site has crashed again.

Since this thing has been e-mailed all over the internet ... I wonder if her parents have got it yet?

Venom
27-04-2006, 18:38:43
It's back. And at this rate, he'll have it by tomorrow afternoon.

The Register had an article on it a while back. A warning about clicking on links there too IIRC

Gary

Ah yes, here ... (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/04/06/website_challenge/)

I'm sure she already has a loophole planned to get out of this ... say "illegal" advertising or something. She's kind of cute though.

Venom
27-04-2006, 20:21:22
My god. A scam on the internet!

That's interesting. The Register story is about (the now-defunct) helpwinmybet.com, which did reach 2M hits, not helpwinthisbet.com, which is still on 1M, and hasn't got any outgoing links. Is the new one just a backup for posterity?

Counter was at 1.1 million when I check the page.

You know what sucks. I would lose this kind of bet, I am sure of it.

Venom
27-04-2006, 21:33:26
For all you retards still clicking the page. It really is a scam.

Darkstar
27-04-2006, 21:38:35
Joke is on him. He should have had ads on his page to make money.

Venom
27-04-2006, 21:43:49
Read the fucking article and all will be clear.

Darkstar
27-04-2006, 21:46:35
Reading the article spoils the fun. And posting.

Funko
28-04-2006, 08:20:35
That's even better. Clever guy!

I thought it was a link to a maddox page, black background and yellow font etc, and a fake counter.

Ginfizwithatwist
28-04-2006, 23:37:49
hit is over 6 mil!
At this rate he may just get himself an orgy:lol:

6,347,163

It seems to be running at roughly 500 hits a second using my non scientific counting method...

Rekrul
28-04-2006, 23:46:36
I made it roughly 555, but I think my method may be more unscientific-ified

Gibsie
29-04-2006, 00:37:15
Ahh, the Registrer. I like this kinda old headline on the site, "US paras fingered over gay porn" :D

Piffle ... let me make a shitty site and then join some traffic exchange programs, and I can outpace him.
