    I definitely start off counting but inevitably lose count when I have to make a crazy save, so then I estimate where I was and start counting again. Unless I pass by a wide margin, I'm not usually sure until I check the tape.

    haha yeah I was getting into a rythym then suddenly I messed it up as you do get a little confused if you lose concentration. I was surprised it was such a close shave, when you're doing it it's tricky to keep count - I find I count in fours with this one, bouncing on each side counts for 1 so multiplying by four sets the target... Do you find you count to get an idea of progress or do you just do it blind?

    Dear Mick why do we always get records that land on 666, 13 or 187. That is creepy.

    Hahahaha....wow. By one. That's okay-- I was a little uncomfortable with having any record involving 666. Attempting this feat sort of hypnotizes you after a while, doesn't it? I'll get to work on this one soon too...

    There are two lamps on, actually. Maybe I just need better lamps.
