    It takes two to tango. So whilst it's not that surprising Woolworths would be willing to that $33K at it - I'd love to know who was the price setter in the auction.

    Probably the bloke who forgot to renew it (must have told his boss he'd donate his 2011 salary as an auction bid to not fire him).

    :D

    Hardware.com.au achieves record price

    http://www.coopermills.com.au/wordpress/index.php/2010/12/hardware-com-au-achieves-record-price/

    Great to see CooperMills blogging on the sale. Will be better for industry if/when the new owner starts advertising the domain.

    Disclaimer: I was the one who had it on NF backorder.

    Did you know the domain was about to drop (before being listed by Auda) Rhythm?

    Dumb q - does having a backorder at NF exclude any other bidder from trying to order that name? IOW - since you had already backordered the name - would there be no auction at NF, and you might have won it by default?

    That's right - Rhythm would have won the domain for the princely sum of $59 if we'd have caught it. However despite our best efforts we missed out - sorry Rhythm :(

    Full credit to you to spot this opportunity and take the gamble with the backorder. Hope next time it pays off for you...

    It does sound like a "gamble" to me, how often does someone actually acquire a names bidded up on other venues this way? Is it really going to get chased hard if the catcher gets nothing from a successful catch?

    If they did catch it I am sure that the number of backorders would increase across the board lol.
