From idea to launch in less than 48 hours (those 48 hours including
the new year party , rails once again showed its effectiveness.
Last friday I read the news about a guy who sold a million pixels for
1$ each on his homepage. After slamming my head during half an hour
for not having thought of it , I thought I’d better spend some time
on a rails project, and more as a therapy than in the hope to become a
millionair, I put http://milliondollarweek.com in place.
It was a real pleasure to see the implementation progress that fast:
design the database schema, generate scaffold, adapt the scaffold, add
an engine for authentication. In less than 24 hours the infrastructure
was in place and I spent as much time on content and simple CSS as on
So thanks rails for saving my sanity (though some doubt I ever had it
at all) and giving me fun.
 my consolation being that even if I had thought of it I surely
wouldn’t have done it
