Just thought of a little game that might be fun...

Right now blk0001.dat+blkindex.dat = 750,631,971 bytes.

Let's try to guess when that it will reach:

a) 800,000,000+ bytes (win 0.10 btc)
b) 1 gigabyte (win 0.25 btc)
c) 1 gibibyte (win 0.25 btc)

Post your guesses for each in this thread by the end of August (I don't anticipate it reaching that file size by then).

My guesses which could be waaaay off because I'm just pulling them out of my [[]] are:

a) September 5, 1pm utc
b) October 31, 1pm utc
c) November 3, 1pm utc

Wouldn't that require players to pay money, rather than post a free guess in a forum for no risk?

Looks like I win, can't believe how close that guess turned out.

Surprised people turned down a free guess at free money though.
