Blackmailing the MillionDollarHomePage
By now, I believe mos tof you have heard of Alex tew and how me managed to earn $1 Million from his website (actually it’s a little over $1M since he auctioned off the last 1,000 pixels for ~$38K on eBay).
Dozens and dozens of other millionaire wannabes have duplicated the idea but failed. If it isn’t still obvious to the copycats, the idea is just a one-hit wonder and nothing more. A couple of enterprising programmers though made a few hundred or even thousand bucks selling the MillionDollarHomePage script ( a much better version I believe). Script prices range from $179 to $299 a pop.
But some guy thought of a much easier idea. Why not blackmail Alex Tew and ask for a $50,000 dole-out? In exchange, the website will not be a target of a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack.
And that’s exactly what heppened a couple of days ago…
