[PLUG] Google App Engine - SKD works nicely on Linux

The Google App Engine is now active for anyone to sign up and use. 


You download Google's SDK to your Linux box. Beyond the SDK, all
you need is Python 2.5. 

It's possible to create and test applications locally. Or, just upload
them to Google and test. The upload is a simple shell command, which makes
this ideal for building pages for a small business or home. You can 
do everything via ssh command prompt on your computer.

You get 500 MB of storage space and up to 5 million page views a
month. They have a database like storage through a Python API.  In the
future, they will offer more storage for a fee. But, this is enough to
get started with a development project.

It appears that everything is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license.

It's also possible to map your own domain CNAME to the site.
