After hours upon hours of reading the tech manuals for certain software and servers, and playing with some new technology, I decided to give my brain a break.
And went domaining for a couple of hours. (No brain cells required. Just systems and old bad habits.)
Hmmmmmmm . . .
I'm not gonna get sucked back in, especially since I'm finding the tech and development side more interesting and exciting but . . .
It appears that some domains that may have been locked up by "domain tasters" are available. It appears that certain other domains may simply be being dropped, perhaps as some domainers with unprofitable portfolios are trimming their losses, etc.
Whatever the case there were a few small gems in the rock pile.
Just picked up a fairly strong commercial domain that likely has a realistic re-sale value of ~$5K, with an actual buyer market.
Now, all I have to do is wait a bit for the economy to show new signs of life.
Advice for the day: If you haven't checked lately now might be a time to kill a few hours when your brain is otherwise fried. ;)
