    There sure was.
    Tim is planning a complete overhaul of auDA, starting with what he believes is the much needed rebranding of the .au space.

    His goal is to replace the myriad of current extensions, .com.au, .net.au, .org.au, .id.au, .asn.au, .edu.au, .gov.au, .csiro.au, .nsw.au, .vic.au, .tas.au, .sa.au, .nt.au, .act.au, .qld.au, .wa.au, .horse.au, .theyhaventgotaclue.au (at this stage we tried to suggest that the latter two are not actual extensions, however, he was on a roll and there was no stopping him) with one powerful, overarching extension that will unite the entire country and send a defiant message to the world that Australia means business (.au we suggested, but no, apparently that's off the table) ... drumroll, wait for it — .tim.au

    And if you're excited about the forthcoming launch of AUHQ, you can forget it. That's out the window and will be replaced by TIMHQ.

    For full details of Tim's plans, head over to what will become the future hub of all things domains down under, tim.tim.au
    :D:p:cool:

    I have obtained video footage from the venue and it clearly shows Tim handing money over to Scott7... Buying votes? I'll let you decide but the evidence is damming! ....... (especially if taken out of context)

    Yes, I was handed cash by Tim during the evening. I'm not convinced that all of it was legal tender, as I don't recall Tim's face featuring on any Australian currency before. Maybe he's released a physical version of his own cryptocurrency, Timcoin. It wouldn't surprise me, considering all the grandiose plans he's got for auDA.

    He could even be planning to become the future resident of Kirribilli House. After all, he wouldn't be the first person to use his board member position as a springboard into politics. Today auDA, tomorrow the world. :eek:
    :)

    Please be aware that TimCoin.Com has been registered since 2014 and is under privacy ...it would appear he has been planning this "coup" for some time now ...... I've said it before and i'll say it again .. "get me auda here!"
