predict-and-win contest.

At the end of six months, when the number of visits to iisc life crossed 5K, I was wondering whether the number would cross 10K at the end of twelve months. But you guys have already crossed that mark and bhOndOO is now roaring towards 20K.

Here is a contest: You predict one date on which iisc life would reach 20,000 visits and the person(s) whose prediction is nearest to the actual date (before or after) it happens will be the winner. The prize is a treat from bhOndOO in T-board of IISc (travel and stay not sponsored).

You can make only one prediction. You cannot change the prediction once made. And, you have to comment in your prediction before number of tics reaches 17,000.

The progress of tics has happened as follows:

  • After first month (Oct 24, 2007): 300+.
  • After six months (Mar 24, 2008): 5,000+.
  • After eight months (May 24, 2008): 10,000-.
  • After nine months (Jun 24, 2008): 15,000+.

When will it make 20,000?

    Lesser the no. of participants, better the chances for me. 🙂

    The traffic to this site has increased steeply.
    six months (Mar 24, 2008): 5,000+.
    nine months (Jun 24, 2008): 15,000+.

    That means, 10K visits in just 3 months. Awesome.
    Congrats bhOndOO!

    bhOndOO realized that he can also predict. His prediction is Aug 05, 2008.

    Within 24 hours from July 25th 2008 – 3:00 PM IST.

    I think you can easily understand the reason behind this prediction.

  8. iisc Says:

    :). You got it right Satish.

    Anyway, the 20K mark was reached (rather surprisingly at the last moment) on Jul 25, 2008. The winner is Sachin whose prediction date is Jul 30 and there is nobody at a misspeculation of 5 days from the correct date.

    Congrats Sachin. You deserve a treat. You can get it from bhOndOO anytime in IISc. Just let him know.
