    Well, I guess there's a silver lining for the rest of us then. last thing we need is adding to anyone's TBR warchest :xf.grin:

    Its not me, I don't typically throw big money at one lotto ticket. I like having lots of discount lotto tickets.

    I'm in half a dozen siber auctions. got a couple at $20 that snuck in under the radar (unless someone threw in a last second bid I didn't notice). There were a few domains that likely attracted a little attention that I chose not to chase, namely, starbright, freewheel, highrollers, all picked up by siber.

    Sure, everyone needs to worry about me, not the guy controlling the Namebio .CA sales chart. :xf.frown:

    Same here, but I also spend a bit on ones that really stand out to me, but I was more referring to the old "got a $20 winner, then someone lays down a $35 last-second snipe" kind of deal.

    I also hate waiting til 5PM to find out.

    well, that might occasionally be me because I leave everything to the last second. I usually roll out of bed by 10am PST, do some final research and then scramble to put in some orders.

    When was the last time Dynadot got something this good? I don’t even recall them getting anything.

    I don't remember anything that high or that good ever before.

    It's funny how the TBR works sometimes, as it has some inherent randomness built in, and BK.ca actually went 5th, after:

    rubberassociation.ca - MyID
    heir.ca - MyID
    anniversary.ca - dot-ca
    bloggingcanadians.ca - Internic

    The dot-ca one is weird, as I could've sworn that BK.ca was the top bid auction on the list, but I'll have to check that out.

    Edit: I just checked, and anniversary.ca was 8th on the dot-ca list, but I guess someone screwed up with the server load, and BK.ca (along with Ranger and some others) got toasted even though dot-ca was in time for all the top-end names.

    Reminds me of the quote, “Even a blind dog finds a bone every once in a while”.

    That one was owned by a very prominent domainer so I was surprised that he let that one go.... Maybe one of those “oppsies”. Although he has plenty more good ones. :)

    yeah, so myid didn't get shut out, but whoever prioritizes their TBR run must have called in sick today. That was an expensive mistake.

    I wonder who next week's one-thread-wonder will be? Place your bets now! I'll guess CanSpace!

    BK.ca is certainly humming along:

    bk.ca
    Time Remaining: 9 days, 19 hours

    Current Bid: $2266.38

    And Ranger.ca has jumped up quick to $1,000. Yeesh!

    Still a ways to go before it reaches what I said but that was if it was caught by MyId! It may even reach that at Dynadot as well. That is a very long auction though for a TBR! I thought FWS’s 3 day (or is it 4) was bad enough but this one takes the piss.

    Unless of course this is a veiled statement that the bearer of the good news is also the recipient.

    I'm more surprised that the Ranger.ca auction just started and it's already at 4-figures. I thought I might have a shot, but not at this rate.

    Thanks for the laugh. I wish this was my sale. I'm on such a cold .CA streak that I've just been diagnosed with hyperthermia

    I thought it would have changed by now or I would have gone there first.

    ... and the rich get richer.

    ... and the rich send GD Deadbeats after me like a Zombie Apocalypse.
