Gedeon Maheux and the Marble of Doom

It sounds like a horror movie, but it's much worse -- ask any Mac user and they'll tell you that the sight of the spinning rainbow wait cursor (the beachball, the Spinning Pizza/Beachball of Death) is enough to strike fear into the most hardened heart. If you're fed up with application pauses that are inexplicable and sometimes interminable, Gedeon feels your pain, and he wants you to stand up and be counted.

Presented by iconfactory and ARTIS software and announced via Twitter: the new, hypnotic MarbleofDoom.com. Finding yourself becalmed while you wait for the bitbucket to fill up? Just add your time to the master counter and compare your sufferings with those of other Mac users. Sure, it's probably a waste of time... but since you're already waiting around...
