Alright, it's not really an achievement, but there'll be a prize anyway:
whoever solves the 1 millionth puzzle on the site, will get a free copy
of the new book,
201 Tricky Puzzles...

I'm happy to see that this time the European time zone gets a chance
to get it (last time there was a prize (was it 250,000?) it was prime time in the US)...

Counter is at 999933 now...

1 million puzzles solved!

The lucky winner is 'poppy' from the US.

The ones who got close:

999,995: jomapil (Portugal)
999,996: poppy (US)
999,997: poppy (US)
999,998: stjohnteh (Malaysia)
999,999: krh (US)

1,000,001: sangadw (Thailand)
1,000,002: arjen (Netherlands)
1,000,003: thees (Netherlands)
1,000,004: jomapil (Portugal)
1,000,005: giannakk (Greece)

It was clearly much quieter than the last time I had a prize (for the 100,000th solution,
the server was under very heavy load then, when the site had far fewer users (!)):
the difference was that then I had announced it on the rankings page, now it was only
in the forums.

Congratulations to 'poppy' :-)

It came in at 10.33.57 CET (so 4.33.57 EST).

It was the easy 4x4 of that day.

And in fact, because I haven't heard anything from the winner
(I did send her/him e-mail), I think (s)he got the 1 millionth solution by accident...
