    1. ….well….

      with 1509 views since starting 16 days ago, that’s 94 views a day. Assuming this continues for the next 12 months that will be 34,310 views, each pressing 27 fewer buttons to get here. The domain name cost $17.00 for a year, so with 926,370 fewer buttons pressed that’s a cost of just 0.002 cents per button-press saved.

      At an average typing speed of 165 characters per minute I’ve saved almost 4 full days of academic health economists’ time. If the average health economist earns $40,000/year then that’s a saving of about $154.

      So, an overall saving of $137. Unfortunately no quality of life data was available.

      … I have too much time on my hands.
