Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
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. ;)
Be intresting what it goes for as I need this to sharpen my skills in this area of the web.
As the currency exchange rate between the dollar and (the rest of the world) begins to tip back towards the dollar a bit I'll bet a few folks that were sitting on the sidelines, not seizing the chance to pick up some cheap "US" domains may be jumping in a bit.
Maybe folks across the pond just don't see the value or opportunity, but that doesn't mean that, in retrospect, some folks will think otherwise.

The volume of people looking /learning / reading has gone never mind buying.
Good names are coming on to the market at sensible prices :)
