    That ad is excellent.

    How much of that did you have your hands on?

    A friend of mine has 20 years in the ad industry. He knew a 3d illustrator guy in Atlanta. He had me write up the copy, which he edited. The concept was mine. These guys ran with it. They did this in like 4-5 days. I am very pleased.

    I also built the UI, and wrote all the code for the application. A UI designer layed it out as an image originally.

    We'll be running it on X2100 M2s, which is more power than we need. But we're raffling the cheaper X2100. Single, instead of dual core Opteron, and no iLOM card.

    Its Loo-si-shun.

    So your app is basically some kind of casino reporting software?

    There's nothing like what we do for less than a million dollars. It just kinda seemed obvious: apply "Web 2.0" to casino reporting.

    Yeah, for a big casino it runs higher than that for Mariposa or Casino Data Imaging. Its a drop in the barrel for those guys, but smaller casinos can't afford those systems.

    Do you have design documentation? Eventually the software will need a refresh and it will be a royal pain if you're banking on remembering how it all works.

    Nice ad; pretty.

    We used an MVC framework which kept things pretty tidy, and the code is heavily commented, on about a 1:1 code:comment ratio. There was no design document up front because there was no up front design. BDUF doesn't work. The use of the framework we picked means much of our design documentation is already done, and updating it to explain our particular implementation isn't a gargantuan task.

    So did you write this in hopes that someone would buy it? Or was there an initial investor who 'helped' financially and drove direction/options?

    We were seeking funding for a protocol system, and one person we talked to wanted just a reporting system. And we got alot of response to a demo we showed. And we've been working with a gaming statistician and some other people like that. I also had experience with the existing reporting systems in the industry, and had a good feel for what customers needed. But no, no customers yet. Its been created on spec. People won't buy an unfinished product from an unknown company. They want to see something real and working. And yes, it was written in the hopes that many people will buy it.

    I think it will sell. And I think if it doesn't sell, that in the least I can off load it to a gaming company for their use and get everyone's money back.

    Looks nice! Does it work on IE, or is it too cool for it?
