When will we hit 1 million?

I am heading out for a 2 week vacation. It looks like I won’t be hear to see the counter roll over to 1 million downloads. So when will we actually get to 1 million? Right now we are at 854,694.

JavaOne Roundup

So I head for SFO in the wee hours of the morning and thought it would be worth jotting down a few thoughts and observations. Here they are in more-or-less random order.
