It has been just a bit over a week since I placed my pixel on the Million Dollar Homepage. As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve uploaded my pixels to a few other pixel ad sites here and there. The results are pretty interesting and I’m a little more than surprised to say the MDHP is not the only pixel site generating traffic.

Alex Eckelberry’s post regarding the latest zero day exploit for IE couldn’t have been timelier. I had noticed his post earlier in the day but hadn’t given it much notice. I was surprised that an exploit had been found and used in such a short period of time, but I suppose that indicates it was a black hat that found the vulnerability in the first place.
In any case I recently switched my browser of choice and have been using FireFox as my primary browser. Unfortunately I haven’t made this preference known to my system as of yet, thus URLs I click in emails or otherwise automatically open still in IE. My experience this evening has lead me to make that change.
Yes, I am most assertively a late arrival to this particular phenomenon. I’ve read the entire blog over at Alex Tew’s now infamous MillionDollarHomepage, and am embarrassed to admit I’m 4 months behind on the topic. Nevertheless he still has a little more than 100,000 pixels to go before collecting his final dollar, as of today. I would venture a guess at late January 2006 for the final pixel placement.
I admit that I have imagined the existence of my own web page for quite some time (since 1995 to be exact). You might say it is an incredible irony that a person who builds web applications for a living might take such an extraordinarily long time to get a presence of his own established. Well I’d agree with you! Nevertheless there is no such thing as a bad time to pursue your dreams, your imaginations.
