Whybuy was written in July 2002 and is kinda dead for several reasons..
It started because I was influenced by ESR's itch a scratch reasoning - and in Israel - mortage, housing banks and intrest are one hell of a scratch.. :)
Later on after figuring out that you can not really plan ahead the amount of money you'll save and that I totally missed out on the grandma factor - I got to the conclusion that it's plain silly.
In retrospective buying a house was one of the smartest financial descsions I've made while whybuy claimed that I should have saved an additional couple of years which was completely wrong.
