Ever wondered how much Markus "Notch" Persson makes? Well wonder no more! With a bit ofmathematics, statistic grabbing, and Java... you're answer is here! The program is called the Minecraft Motivator and was programmed by Eugene Raether (Minecraft name: marinepower). It's boggling my mind how much Notch is making because at the time of this post, here is a screenshot of the program and how much he's made:
Raether explains his program:
ever wonder just how quickly Notch is making his fortune? Well, with this JAVA program, you can find out how. It's also fairly motivating if I dare say so myself. You might think twice about watching that youtube video next time if you see that Notch has made $500 in the time it took you to watch it.

UPDATE: "Good call, Added in per minute and per second rates" - Eugene Raether
The photo above clearly explains it. He is living every indie-game developer's dream. He's made a globally-recognized game along with massive sales and many fans. My guess is that numbers that are being calculated are via a URLConnection() grab off the Minecraft statistics page. Anyway, if you don't know how to open a .jar file, Google "How to run a .jar file"! :)
