Hi, >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 development. So thanks rails for saving my sanity (though some doubt I ever had it at all) and giving me fun. Raph  my consolation being that even if I had thought of it I surely wouldn't have done it :-)

What does that have to do with milliondollarweek? I'm, confused. Thanks -Ezra Zygmuntowicz WebMaster Yakima Herald-Republic Newspaper firstname.lastname@example.org 509-577-7732

He's selling redirects in one minute increments, so thats who's got it now. I'm not sure how he's supposed to advertise the service though, if you just get redirected when you try to visit the site.
