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.
Hahahhahah......... what a joke. Meaning, what type of people actually click the links and follow through?

he must be quite rich already, hehe, one little square is 100$!
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...
he thought about that issue it seems

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)

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.
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.

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
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
