Asking for help

I run into an interesting problem today, I need something done, in particular, I need a redirect download module for Cuyahoga.

Cuyahoga is a really nice CMS, which I have been using for the last three or four years, with very few issues.

One thing that I want is to be able to create a download list that is hosted off site. In this way, I would be able to put stuff on S3 and still get tracking from Cuyahoga, not to mention that it will all blend into my site. Building a module with Cuyahoga is fairly simple, and there is a really excellent guide here.

The problem that I have is that I find myself with no actual time to do this. I currently have some time to do this, but ... my biological clock says that it is 5 AM or so, and I haven't slept in about 20 hours. I can barely see, and I don't want to see code that I write at this stage. I can actually feel my thoughts being slowed.

Anyway, I thought that I would see if I can get help from the community with this. It is a simple problem, but it should expose the author to a lot of interesting patterns (MVC, NHibernate, to name a few). There is even an existing template that just needs to be tweaked a bit if you want to do it this way, the Cuyahoga builtin download module.

Anyone interested?

Update: After getting some sleep, I spent several hours and did it myself. Thanks for everyone who suggested to help me with this.
