Try again. The 60k is from 600k euros, the money Notch generated since he last emptied the PayPal account (once a week every week according to Twitter). Therefore, it really is 60k in two weeks. Statistics 1924 players online, in 785 servers. 599984 registered users, of which 133295 (22.21%) have bought the game. In the last 24 hours, 11833 people registered, and 4485 people bought the game.
