    First off hope you are ok,

    Can you give me a summary of what has happened in the .au domain trading space over the last 6 months please? - Not too many big sales but a few recent good ones check the right side bar Homeloancalculator sold on NF for 33,000 recently.
    Does snoop still appraise .net.au as shite? - I think he did appraise mine the other day as shite lol.
    Is Ventraip still the cheapest COR? - Yes still cheap, but I think crazy domains is now lower, but ventra IP still on top imo
    Is drop still the easiest COR? - I believe they are very COR friendly still from my experience.
    Are the prices higher on the drops? - I think they are you see way more domains going for alot higher then they would have 12 - 18 months ago, many more end users in the drops look at car sales any good auto domain classified related they buy buy buy.
    Are drop and net fleet the only drop players? - NF seems to be the main player, drop has dropped off but comes back some times for a day of wins.
    Any changes to AUDA rules? - Not many I can remember, possibly owner ship rules some one else may follow up.
    Any buyers around? - Think a few keen buyers around, but still not huge amounts flooding in.
    Anyone disappeared from this forum? Think a few have left, but over limited, saw some one say they are moving to islands and never coming back.

    Hello Joe my friend :)

    It's so good to see you back in print - both on here and via your sites. Your attitude is just the best.

    I loved this line:

    • Market is definitely stronger - more buyers.

    • 6 month rule officially got buried late last year.

    • I'm not sure if the Pope is still a Catholic.

    • Spacey, Billy01 and Corey left the building.

    • Got some good and keen new members.

    • Last year's auDA election candidates no longer contribute to DNT (apart from Erhan). :rolleyes:

    • Some .net.au domains have been sold at reasonable prices (Snoopy stopped just short of calling for a Royal Commission).

    • Sales prices still inconsistent. But definitely heading north in general.

    • St Kilda (Saints) still suck - Eagles are in the ascendancy.

    :D

    Welcome back Sir.

    Everything is better! .com.au prices are going through the roof, Tiffany is accepting .net.au's instead of dollars, Shags just bought a canary yellow Lamboghini Myalgo with the profits from a 3d domain sale.
