Um, I really don't mean to sound antagonistic here, but have you ever actually set up a dot-com with all the billing and stuff? I've been with senior management in two and it cost us millions to get this basic stuff right both times. Much more complex business than a game site, of course, but still horribly complex. The support issues are much worse, so David would have to hire personnel; he'd need to sign up with a co-hosting facility (for both production and billing); blah, blah, blah. The cash investment would be substantial just getting the infrastructure in place. Then he'd still have to accomplish the development of the web-based product.

Surely, if David had all that money to invest, he'd spend it on marketing!
