Time is money! Everything you need to set up your own DelayWall to capture the value of time is below.
DelayWall exists in a universe where everything is free, but where it takes as long to obtain information as it did to produce. Downloading a song? It might take ten days. A movie? Possibly several years!
Because of throttling limits imposed by most webhosts, the easiest way to experience DelayWall is to set one up on your own machine. Here's how to set up a DelayWall on Mac OS X, which includes an Apache webserver (I have no idea how to do this on a PC, but I'm sure some judicious Googling would turn up an answer).
Enable PHP on your machine by opening "/etc/apache2/httpd.conf" in a text editor and uncommenting the following line (remove the leading "#"): "#LoadModule php5_module libexec/apache2/libphp5.so" or install MAMP
to run Apache and PHP locally (much easier).2.
In your System Preferences, go to the "Sharing" tab and turn on "Web Sharing." 3.
Download this file
(option click on the link if it opens in a browser window), delete the ".txt" suffix, and place it in the "Sites" directory in your User folder.4.
Open a web browser and navigate to http://localhost/delaywall.php?file=somefilename.mp3&time=650000
, where "somefilename.mp3" is the name of the file (also in the Sites directory) that you want to delay (it can be a .mp3, .mpg, a .pdf, a .zip, a .mov, an .avi, a .dmg) and the number following "time=" is the approximate number of seconds you want the download to take. Browsers behave slightly differently and processor speeds make a difference, so your mileage may vary.
