What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

Is there a Stackoverflow web service available to grab the amount of question asked?

I dont want to srape the page as this probably is forbidden.

I want to write a program to simple monitor the count so i can be the 3 millionth question!

What an honor that would be :)

Questions about the site (and/or site complex) should be on the meta site. What an honor to spam the system and steal the rightful question out from a legitimate 3 millionth poster's nose... –  Marc B Apr 19 '12 at 19:23
    
You assume that my question is not worthy? –  HarHaHu Apr 19 '12 at 19:24
    
Why was this migrated to meta? It's obviously a programming question! –  larsmans Apr 19 '12 at 19:29
    
Fine, i'll have to settle for 3,000,001 –  HarHaHu Apr 19 '12 at 19:40
    
No one will even know yours is the 3,000,000th question. The number in the URL uses a post ID number which just recently passed 10,000,000. –  animuson Apr 19 '12 at 19:47

Can you please, in the future, capitalize I? When you ask questions here, or on SO, it's like going to a formal dinner. Not proofing your questions is like showing up in shorts that have a broken fly, with no underwear. –  Tim Post Apr 19 '12 at 19:53
    
@larsmans its like a service request not a programing question. –  Ankit Sharma Apr 20 '12 at 6:28
    
Tim, ill try and be more careful next time! :) –  HarHaHu Apr 20 '12 at 13:49
