Any day now, the Fairpole system will pass 1,000,000 objects. (Every object--a blog entry, a user, a comment--gets an object number.) What will happen when the odometer turns over? Will the world fall apart, as we feared in Y2K? If it doesn't, should we throw a party? Should we throw the creator of the 1,000,000th object into a volcano as a sacrifice to the Database Gods?
