Marble of Doom

We've all been in that situation where you click to launch a program and you sit, and wait ... if you're on a PC you are familiar with the hourglass, draining and spinning and refilling; Apple users get a spinning color wheel that looks like a psychedelic starlight mint. This has prompted the Marble of Doom website which allows users to mark the time they have wasted watching the "marble of doom" spin while you wait, and wait, and wait for your program to run. I guess this is what happens when a programmer is forced to wait for too long, he comes up with website ideas to mock the source of their frustration.
