Does anyone actually think this is for real?

Did you see this clever site? Million Dollar Home Page?

"The idea is simple: to try and make $1m (US) by selling 1,000,000 pixels for $1 each. Hence, 'The Million Dollar Homepage". The main motivation for doing this is to pay for my degree studies, because I don't like the idea of graduating with a huge student debt. I know people who are paying off student loans 15-20 years after they graduated. Not a nice thought!" (from Million Dollar Home Page)

Recently I came across the news that the last 1000 pixels were being auctioned off on eBay, meaning, if you believe it, that this enterprising fellow has already made $999,000.00 from this site. Oh, and lots of people have written about it 🙂 Come on, it's gotta be a hoax!
