When I was a kid we would gather 'round the TV and watch the countdown for the first Space Shuttle launches. Invariably, they would get stuck in the countdown at like 30 seconds.

I hope Gary gets to finish his countdown. Those childhood scars run deep.

Well the Chase Freedom bonus is 20K for the time being, so expect a future countdown for that as well...

What would nice to see is a counter with the number of approved CC applications on the blog banner I guess the link pushing posts go down when the magic 50/month is achieved

Wow. I wasn't aware of that or that blog, but it'll be something I read from now on.

Certain bloggers give up freedom of speech to keep "their" 4000 bucks. Small difference.
