    ok ! so who was messy with gerry ? :) , not me, but to go to $501 someone was having some fun?

    Conspiracy theory: gerrys got tracking for everytime his name gets mentioned ( easy) , i post on dnt about it and it goes PING, someone phones gerry and he starts bidding? can't wait to see the new owner but more important who else wanted it and why?

    thats funny, but on a different note people should check out duncans website as i must say you have some REALLY nice designs and some great clients, i actually scrolled down hoping to see harveynorman !

    i use
    HTML:
    http://www.readysteadyprint.com.au/
    for all my work, they are great and the usability of the website is fantastic.

    back to the point, "gotta bid on drop !!!!!!! "

    I agree, why? Even apart from the "walking on thin ice" status of this name domain (what's your close and substantial connection?), what could you possibly use it for?

    Perhaps a fan site... :p

    3 edits later ! sorry, yep its a domain not worth having.

    me......, i'd ring up gerry and say " mate your name went to public auction today, i got it, it cost me $xx and you can have it at cost " get rid of it, its trouble.

    on that note, spacey brings forward a good point and we honestly need to protect our reputation, its a fine line we deal with, "push come to shove" there are a few i'd just hand over as well.

    i didn't bid so i'm in the clear, first thing i would do as you got it by accident is just do a 301 redirect to his site, that would show good faith.

    oops, missed friday but i saw something not so funny, but funny

    protect your brand !

    i was walking to the shops friday 4pm ish, and this fantastically branded car approached, as it drove past , the guy driving it was in a blue collar singlet , red baseball hat turned backwards, driving with one hand whilst talking on the phone !

    ohhhh you always make me laugh, me being "whitecollarwebsites" and all, corporate cars and blue singlets don't match and doubt anyone would disagree.
