Some interesting food for thought for the weekend.  How many of you
saw the launch of Amazon's EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) service beta on


A machine image with a ready-to-go Catalyst environment would be cool.
 A plugin (or other form of tool) that would self-replicate, spawning
additional virtual servers as traffic increased would be even cooler.
Kind of like the Apache multi-process model, but applied to
create-on-demand virtual Catalyst servers.

No, I don't have an EC2 account.  I did get the invite, but the thing
filled up in like 2 hours.

Anyway, something to think about.  I bet somebody is already working
on a Rails one.
