I am helping a friend get his feet wet in web development. He is a really nice guy, smart, and talented. That said he also as we all do have some ,hmmm polite way to say this, shortcomings.

He called me up the other day and asked me if a bid of 100.00 was too much for a two letter .com domaiin. It is the first two letters of his domain. I said dude you serious, and he said what think that is to much. I said probably not. He asked me how to best find out who owns it told him again 3rd time I think. Calls me back and ask you think I should email him or call, I said call but before you make a price ask him what he wants for it. All excited he said yea maybe I can get it cheaper. I thought oh yea.

Can't wait till I hear back from him on this.

What domain is he looking for? hp.com? They sure could use his $100, after all things have been a little bleak in the PC market. Especially after that flood in Thailand...

"What's wrong with my web site? It's not coming up! You're the web guy, that's what I pay you for isn't it? I enter mysite.com and it says 'not found?' What am I paying you for?"

Resolution: This client's site was launched the day before this call. After a long conversation the equivalent of a dentist extracting a molar without anesthesia, I discovered he had been entering the domain name into the search box of a search engine. His address bar was hidden in his browser, probably from visiting pron sites.
