This fun application is designed to motivate an author by applying a real financial penalty if a target word count isn't reached. It's been developed to demonstrate the PayPal preapproval API and was developed in conjunction with the x.com tutorial series. It's just the demonstration of an idea and not production ready.
See http://www.supernifty.com.au/blog/ for further details.
The following technologies were used to build this sample online market:
