    I really should've thought of this before he did...

    The link was mentioned on Attack of The Show (G4) just three hours ago and pixel sales have near-doubled since then.

    ROTFL, looks like my grandma's old fridge, hehe.
    Yup that is right LiLcRaZyFuZzY, 1 square is $100 cas each square is 10 pixels by 10 pixels. I wonder if you can buy a single pixel of each and every remaining square to screw him over so no one can buy entire squares any longer, at least until he adds another million...

    "The minimum purchase is 100 pixels for 100 dollars - you can't buy individual pixels as they're too small to be of any use on their own," Alex said.

    The minimum purchase is $100 and the maximum is what ever is left.

    I have noticed that some adds look like they overlap other adds, that may not be true, but it looks like it.

    I thought that too at the beginning, but I doubt it now. However, there are a few images with no links at all (specifically a few of the black ones with the R in the corner)

    Got an email forwarded to me from my brother from my uncle when he went on AOL:



    Hackers Attack Million Dollar Homepage




    LONDON (Jan. 19) - A Web site that earned an enterprising British student $1
    million suffered a crippling attack by ransom-seeking hackers.

    Getty Images
    Alex Tew, a 21-year-old student in the United Kingdom, generated more than
    $1 million by selling pixels on his Million Dollar Homepage, gaining fans
    and, it appears, foes.

    *Talk About It:* The
    Buzz

    Alex Tew, 21, said Wednesday that his Million Dollar Homepage was targeted
    after he publicized how it had helped him raise money for his university
    studies.

    Tew had sold 10,000 small squares of advertising space on the Web site for
    $100 each, achieving his target in four months. His initiative spawned
    several copycat sites.

    But Tew said that on Jan. 7, he received a threat from an organization
    calling itself "The Dark Group," demanding that he pay them $50,000 within
    72 hours or face having his site taken down.

    "It was written in poor English, but the hackers asked for $50,000, saying
    that it was just 5 percent of what I had made," Tew said. "I did not reply
    to the e-mail. I had no intention of paying."

    Tew ignored the threat. Hackers then initiated a so-called distributed
    denial of service, in which attackers take command of third-party computers,
    through a virus or other security vulnerability, and instruct them to send
    junk data to the target site, overwhelming servers and causing the site to
    crash or perform poorly.

    Tew said the site now works normally.

    Tew, from Wiltshire, a county in southern England, said he informed the FBI
    because his site is hosted in the United States.

    FBI spokesman Paul Bresson said the agency was investigating.

    Such extortion cases targeting Web sites are occurring with greater
    frequency.
