Hope you’re having a nice Sunday today. Here are a few things I am thinking about today as well as the winners of my two passes to the Geodomain Expo later this week:
- It may sound out of place to randomly insert this bit of knowledge into a conversation with your friends, but they should know to buy their .com domain name if available. It made me smile yesterday when one of my friends told me that he’s managing his first political campaign (state representative), and he bought the candidate’s .com domain name…. and the potential typo since the guy’s name is Gregg with an extra g.
- When I was at the NY Mets game on Friday (rooting against the Mets), I saw a pretty large billboard for a local equipment company called Arpielle Equipment. They were advertising the url RPLEquipment.com, and I thought it was interesting in light of their difficult name to spell. Of course, their website is located on ArpielleEquipment.com, but it’s a smart way to help people remember a difficult spelling.
- With just a week left before Karen and I bike 42 miles on Team Ronald to help the Ronald McDonald House non profit, we are just under $750 away from our $4,000 goal. Here are a few names I am selling with the proceeds going to RMDH (you can pay them directly). Post “sold” in the comment area if you want a name. You can even make an offer if you’d like, and I will consider all offers.
- AcceleratedBusinessDegrees.com – $35
- ComputerRefurbishing.com – $100
- DiaperClutches.com – $50
- GunnamattaBay.com – $50
- GunnamattaBeach.com – $50
- PocketWatchCollector.com – $40
- SelfPacedMBA.com – $180
- TableTennisSets.com – $40
- TelemarkSkiers.com – $50
- WeekendMBAPrograms.com – $200
- I created an Excel spreadsheet with everyone’s name in a different row, and Patrick selected two random numbers using Random.org’s random number generator. And the two people who are the winners of my passes to the GeoDomain Expo in New Orleans later this week are… Kevin and Steve. I will be emailing them very shortly with confirmation information from Patrick… I will also be sending an email to the people who didn’t win putting them in touch with Patrick in the event one or both of the winners cannot attend. Thank you to everyone for entering!
Have a great Sunday!
