Giving the Gift of IT
It seems Christmas has come early this year for the Town of Dewey Beach. According to this article, published yesterday, a long-time resident of the Town has offered to maintain the Town's website for the bargain price of $1 a month. For you number wonks, that works out to a paltry 2 cents per week, or one-half of one-hundredth of one cent per hour (assuming a 40-hour workweek). I guess time will tell if this is a bargain or if the old adage "you get what you pay for" holds true. For now, the Town's official website looks pretty good compared to most other small towns' sites.
If only all IT professionals charged a mere $12 bucks a year for their services...until then, I'll deal with my mile-long inbox of spam and and my dozen or so pop-ups per hour the old-fashioned way.
