    StarWorld is a nice name, and hopefully it will before long get into meaningful end use. Even at purchase price room for nice ROI I think.

    I guess for some companies even $35,000 is not that much to speculate on something, but I am still surprised to see how common it is that 5 figures are spent for a domain name, and then it simply is let to expire, never used, years later.

    Just a 4% pa interest charge on $35,000 suggests that you are paying the equivalent of a .com renewal fee every 3 days all those years, so surely it is worth it to renew for $10 and at least try to sell the name for some fraction of what it is worth.
