    In 1996, Andrew Conru had a vision – to create a one-stop solution for seeking, finding, and managing all types of online relationships. Was launched!

    Lonnie, in his overwhelmed and dazed state, absent-mindedly plugged his laptop into the dirt while trying to figure out how to pay the large domain renewal fees…

    The outdoors once belonged to the Cowboy, the Logger, and the Fisherman. Today the Domainer is giving them a run for their money.

    The Walk of Shame…..Domainer Style!

    June 20th, 2008 at 1:11 pm


    In order to succeed in this industry, one needs to have vision, a strong work ethic and the ability to find an outlet almost anywhere when your battery dies in the middle of an auction.

    “Damn it! $0.01 per click? How can I pay for my vacation?”

    “Dear, I said leave the laptop at the hotel.”
    “Look. This ride has an outlet. I can check my auction now.”

    Who says I have a problem–I can stop domaining anytime I want to!

    Kids, can you stop with the scenery for one damn minute and take the opportunity to look at these auctions with me.

    Not only is ‘Green Energy’ convienently everywhere, it’s kosher!

    There comes a time in every man’s life when he must stand up and tell his mother that he is an adult. This usually happens at around the age of 40 and in Lonnie’s case, by email.

    CNN is reporting that the sun is shining and the grass is green! Let me check Fox.

    Dear Mom,

    I’m getting out more, but I still think I’m missing something…

    June 20th, 2008 at 11:41 pm


    Expert domainer Lonnie searches innocently while sniper extraordinaire “Timothy-Tree” captures his next great sniped domain.

    June 21st, 2008 at 2:24 am


    He waited and waited and waited. Like Moses in the desert, he wondered when his day would come. Though the ride would always leave without him. It took several years before Lonnie finally realized he had been waiting at the wrong dock, the Service Dock.
