It's no secret that we love to share. Our web team tells us that from October 2008 to present – less than one full year – our stats database server alone has handled 1.4 quadrillion bytes of disk I/O. What's a quadrillion?
It's one thousand million million and it looks like this: 1,000,000,000,000,000. To put it in perspective, if you had enough means, money, and time you could create a cube out of a quadrillion pennies and the sucker would be more than half a mile tall, wide, and deep. That's a whole mess of pennies.
And of course, with the release of Halo 3: ODST, we're once again upping the Bungie.net ante.
