    Dan and Jeremy: The record creator, Simon, graciously allowed the criteria/rule to be changed so the impressive contribution can be recognized.

    Dan - I counted everyday for about 16 hours. I did sleep though. Not sure where the rule about pausing came from. It wasn't in the rules I submitted. I'm sure the guys here at RecordSetter will get all that wording corrected. It was a long 89 days though...

    Jeremy, how is sleeping factored in? Feels inaccurate to say "may not pause for more than one second between numbers." Super impressive feat, though.

    This was one of my most challenging feats and I felt exhausted afterwards. I challenge anyone to try and take this one on.
