The Dude Who Made Million Bugs with A Page Full Of Ads

This is the story of a dude who made a million bugs with a page full of ads . The Million Dollar Homepage is a website conceived by Alex Tew, a then 21-year-old student from Cricklade, Wiltshire, England to help raise money for his university education. Launched on August 26, 2005, the website is said to have generated a gross income of $1,037,100 USD and has a current Google PageRank of 4a.

The index page of the site consists of a 1000×1000 pixelgrid (one million pixels), on which image-based links were sold for US$1 per pixel, in minimum ten by ten blocks. The purchasers of these pixel blocks provided tiny images to be displayed on them, a URL to which they were linked, and a slogan displayed when hovering the cursor over the link. The aim of the site was to sell all of the pixels in the image, thus generating one million dollars of income for the creator.

On January 1, 2006, the final 1,000 pixels left were put up for auction on eBay. The auction closed on January 11 with a winning bid of $38,100.00, bringing the final tally to $1,037,100 USD in gross income.

The IPL Effect


The selection of the Indian team playing the tri -series in Bangladesh seems to have been highly influenced by the ipl.


Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain and wicket keeper), Yuvraj Singh, Robin Uthappa, Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Sreesanth, Ishant Sharma, Praveen Kumar, RP Singh, Piyush Chawla, Pragyan Ojha.

Clearly 7 out of the 15 member squad were the top performers of the ipl (2 bowlers and 5 batsmen). Some others in the squad being Robin Uthappa who was impressive in the early stages of the tournament ,Rohit Sharma showed how splendid a batsmen he is .Pragyan Ojha did a decent spin job for the Deccan Chargers and R.P.Singh missed  the list of top 10 though he 15 wickets in tournament because of a bad last match.While Ishant Sharma continued to impress with his pace through out the tournament.
