    Good stuff. I am not sure if it is Sci-Fi concept or if it was a sincere business with capacity to fulfill but your inner-futurist is apparent on the homepage there. :)

    Speaking of Archive.org,I have been in contact with Brewster Kahle, Founder, recently. I think they have done humanity a great service though recently it has become easier for sites to be "forgotten" which is making Archive.org more spotty as time goes on and problem sites are Fahrenheit 451'd.

    As some folks here know, we recently acquired the domain Websites.org and are looking at deploying a scalable platform that make it easy to create web archives of websites and then download them as compressed files for offline extraction. For Netizens with bandwidth constraints, this could be a useful tool.

    Don't know for sure, but it was taken down on the same day that I had mentioned my website for the first time on this thread back in March or so.

    It was a coceptualization done by me of what might become reality in the near future. Although after I had made my website another company started using the same name only with the difference that they are using "Centre" instead of "Center" which I am using for AiMedicalCenter.com

    As I already said I am going to write a book and explain my views and perspective of the World and the future in more details.

    IMO

    Sorry I don't get all the politics of this thread but I both agree and disagree with this @Rob Monster on the subject of anonymity. When I joined NP I engaged with a member (who shall remain nameless) and this person started asking all sorts of questions about my politics, religion, ethnicity, skin color, etc. I'm here to buy and sell domain names, primarily. If we can have some fun along the way, then great. But there should be a line between business and personal, and a level of respect. For me, I don't care whether you're gay, straight, white, black, democrat, republican, snort mayonnaise or worship imaginary pigeons. It doesn't interest me in the slightest. If you really want to find out someone's identity it's not that hard, even without deep-level programming knowledge. But I prefer not to get all personal and just keep the chat 95% about domains and becoming more skilled in domaining (auto-spell-check wanted to change that to "dominating" :)). It's also very important to be sincere in business and create a respectable track-record. I'm sure there's a logical mathematical system to domain trading, above and beyond normal sales, and once you figure it out it like it's like listening to An die Freude by Friedrich Schiller...

    Translation: "Joy, beautiful spark of Divinity, Daughter of Elysium, We enter, drunk with fire, Heavenly One, thy sanctuary! Your magic binds again. What custom strictly divided; All people become brothers, Where your gentle wing abides."

    please help me to understand
    how a website sitting on your domain on your server
    can be taken down

    and how come you don't know by whom
    and how come you don't have a backup

    it becomes more interesting when this "you" is in charge of your domain assets

    and nobody controls him
    as he is 80% owner
    and in charge

    This was a simple and introductory website that I had made through the website builder at Godaddy and was up and running for almost nine months before all of a sudden was taken down on the same day that I mentioned it on this thread.

    What’s going on with Rob Monster is that he and a seller (another Epik staff member) broke some NamePros auction rules

    https://www.namepros.com/threads/na...certificate-brand.1159033/page-7#post-7453700

    https://www.namepros.com/threads/name-selection-poll-for-root-certificate-brand.11590(who /page-8#post-7453715

    what’s interesting though is that the seller has already come in, apologized and offered reparations while the Monster has remained silent. Why? is he too stubborn to admit that he did wrong, doesn’t think he did anything wrong, or just doesn’t care?

    I probably overpaid for that domain. You want it for $1500? Come and get it. The bidding was at like $27. If NP management want to review that case, they can do so and come talk to me. If anyone was on thin ice, it was the seller. Give me a break.

    Maybe going off-topic but I think the GD customer support chat is getting worse. It seems like they don't have account access, just send you URL's to GD help pages. I often become the following line "I understand how you feel and if I was in your position I would be upset too" which is the most patronizing copy-paste text I've ever seen. But if you're overly nice and complimentary they magically solve most problems. When they screw things up really badly I just say "you're a truly great guy and a credit to the GoDaddy team, together we can achieve amazing things".... try it, it works!!! The magic line is when you say "thanks, 10 out of 10!!! (because they think you will fill out the feedback form and give positive ratings, which maybe results in a promotion or bonus)

    You do get that I only hired Tin after we bought his domain, right?

    As of yesterday afternoon, Tin is a part-time contractor. He happens to be an expert on network security and has a shared passion for giving people another option besides LetsEncrypt.

    Happy to have a NP staffer review the case. However, you are wasting your time if you think I did anything besides (1) run an open poll for name selection, and (2) buy the best SOLUTION for a fair price.

    Nothing to see here.

    Win-win. The intellectual contribution to that thread is worth at least that much. Unfortunately, we could not buy every good domain as we only need one primary. However, now anyone who wants to launch a competing idea has a convenient place to find a list of eligible names. This is unlikely how brand marketplaces like Squadhelp where all of that valuable insight is concealed! I prefer the NP way!

    I agree with you that everyone should abide by the rules, although this was a specialized domain name that most domainers don't normally register, hence the fact that it was available to be registered by the seller just this month. It's possible that the seller put this domain on auction to attract domainers who were submitting domains to Rob thinking that he could get more from them than from Rob. Although I might be wrong in my assumptions but I doubt that anyone in the auction wanted to keep this domain for themselves, most likely they wanted to buy it cheap in order to sell it to Rob for more. If this was a domain name not related to Rob's projects then it would have been a much more serious breach of the rules.

    IMO

    Men's nipples? For women, to feed a child. Men? Is it early evolution, one day we'll feed something. Is it just decor, a sign of where the chest starts. It it something for the ladies to play with, what exactly? I don't really see intelligent design in there. We have organs/body parts that we don't need, can be taken out, sometimes extra we can give somebody, sometimes just one, and when that gets screwed, you're screwed. Why backups for some things, some things we don't need and only 1 of some things we can't do without. Is that intelligent?

    Give your Creator a break :)

    You are talking and walking and that's a miracle on its own, nevermind your extra body parts, AI will redesign your body in the near future.

    Of course I could have just Googled it:

    "The answer has to do with how humans develop in the womb, said Ian Tattersall, a paleoanthropologist at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

    "Basically, males and females are all built from the same genetic blueprint," Tattersall told Live Science. "Then, [they] develop in slightly different directions [in utero and] particularly after we hit puberty."

    During the first several weeks, male and female embryos follow the same blueprint, which includes the development of nipples. However, at about six to seven weeks of gestation, a gene on the Y chromosome induces changes that lead to the development of the testes, the organ that makes and stores sperm and produces testosterone, according to the book..........

    "The fact is that we carry a lot of evolutionary baggage around with us," Tattersall said. "Natural selection is not hovering there all of the time to get rid of things we absolutely don't need."
