The secret of 2 millionth file on Wikimedia Commons

From Wikimedia Foundation listserv officially comes happy news that Wikimedia Commons now has over two million files. Since March 2007,  Commons routinely have over 100,000 files uploaded every single month. It is becoming more and more common to have over 5,000 files in a single day, since Commons is still a very young project,  say administrators from Commons.

Now comes the exciting part. The 2 millionth file on Commons was an audio file. From the Commons database was extracted that the 2 millionth file on Wikimedia Commons comes from Serbian Wikimedian -Nikola Smolenski who uploaded this file on 03:34, 9 October 2007. Congratulations!
