Finished MVP

Kyle Harrison @apoclyps

It took 6 weeks, but I'm finally done building the minimum viable product for Muxer. I worked mostly nights and weekends, and I coded the whole thing in Ruby on Rails since that's that I'm the most comfortable with. In hindsight, there were a few features I built that probably could've waited until later. But I'm excited to start talking to customers and see what they think about the product so far!
