Nice.
Very Nice, as usual.

There are 900 six-digit palindromes, since there are 9 choices for the first digit (1-9), and ten choices for the second and third digits. The last three digits are uniquely determined from the first three. As for the rest of the five-digit numbers, there’s 82628, 82728, … 99899, and 99999. So the number of five digit palindromes left to go is 999-826+1=174.

All in all, there are 1074 more palindromes left until a million.

Thank You, Yoshi.
It will take me a while to understand those numbers.
Yes, agreed Flicky. That does seem like a low number.

We seem to Celebrate about ever page or two.
Umm...I, just, don't have a feel for the total.

Probably because palindromes are more common with 5 digits. They'll be rarer once we pass 100000. If we ever do.
