I have you beat by 49 days, but somehow I'm not proud of that. Rather than a new badge, perhaps we could have a Hall of Shame?
I would offer a special hidden badge for this, but unfortunately this is a fairly game-able badge since all you have to do is "visit". Doesn't apply to you guys, you're legitimately active users on those days, but our badge doesn't count that.

This would be nice, but I'm afraid it's too easy to get.
Instead, I suggest that the Über-Fanatic badge on each Stack Exchange site be reserved for users that have been visiting the site every day since the first day of the private beta, and a minimum of 2000 days.
Maybe also require that the user hit the rep cap every day he visited the site, too.

My proposal is to replace your gravatar with this for a whole week. :P
I totally agree, but I think it should be named the "Crippling Addiction" badge.
