    Hi Tim, please stay on topic or I will need to report to post to Dntrade for censorship / deletion as you did recently when it was auDA related and you seemingly did not like the post :).

    With your willingness to post on Bitcoins and not on auDA or .au related threads perhaps join a Bitcoin forum and run for a bitcoin board instead?

    I am actually surprised by the low prices of .net
    sales.net $6500
    bargain.net $6500

    .net prices have been hammered by the volume of competing "alt tlds" coming onto the market. .net still outsells all those tlds combined by a massive margin but the wholesale interest is a fraction of what it was.

    .net is also under a lot of pressure due to pretty constant Verisign price rises, likely to be over $15 wholesale within 6 years. Think the extension is a bad bet for domainers.

    I just know they're going to be a gold mine, so I registered every number from 10000.xyz to 19999.xyz
    In the wise words of Frank Shilling, I decided to "leave some money on the table for the next guy", so I left the 20000's and 30000's etc, for other people to make some money too.
    Do the math?!
    I only spent 9999 x $0.88c = $8799.12 US
    BUT...
    I reckon these things are going to go for, like, $100 each in a few years... so I look to make:
    9999 x $100 = $999900 US
    That's US dollars!!
    And if I can just repeat that pattern a few times with some of these UNDERATED gTLDs (like .Horse etc) - then I could be a BILLIONAIRE in a few years.
    Damn. I saw that Billion.com.au dropped a few days ago. I should have grabbed that so I could have used rob@billion.com.au when I hit my milestone.
