Unfortunately this won't work. The until loop will continue redoing the
block until the condition is met. Unless will only execute the block one
time, leaving the counter at 1901 instead of 2000.
Update: crazyinsomniac has pointed out a better way to say
this: The unless(condition) statement is saying the same thing as to if( not condition).
The until(condition) statement is equivelant to
while( not condition).
That is to say, until() and while() are loops, and will repeat until the
condition is met, while if() and unless() are not, and will only execute the
block 0 or 1 times. Therefore, you can't trade unless() for until().
