24hour Internet Marathon

This is a project I've been meaning to do for a while but it has been difficult to find the time.
Basically the concept is to go online and browse continuously for a full 24 hours.

A webcam is set up to record my status for the duration.
Each page is recorded by a screenshot.
Each page must lead to the next be it by content or as a link.
No breaks except absolutely necessary (ie toilet). Food and drink to be consumed at computer.
No email or facebook unless you are led there by the previous page.

I did this from 9pm Monday 5th until 9pm Tuesday 6th.

Here is picture number 1.

I had to pre-prepare food and drinks and have them nearby. Dinner had to be prepared/served by someone else.
The hardest times were from 6am-10am. Fighting sleep.
I learned a lot of useful things and found some interesting pages. I also had to go through a lot of celebrity gossip pages and badly written blogs.
