Sunday Updates

If you’re a hockey fan, you’ve probably enjoyed the last week. Same goes if you’re a tennis fan, too. I happen to enjoy watching both (and playing tennis), and there’s been a lot of action on tv the couple of weeks with the NHL playoffs and the French Open.

It’s been a nice weekend so far, although I won’t bore you with the details. Here are a few Sunday updates for you.

  • There’s been a good discussion on NamePros about brandable domain names. It seems like this is a topic that always produces a good discussion, and the nice thing about it is that nobody is really wrong. I don’t generally invest in brandable domain names, but I do know that people are making money from them.
  • There are now just 5 tickets remaining for the NameJet and Afternic sponsored domain investor meetup in Boston. If you are interested in attending, let me know ASAP. It’s going to be a good crowd, including people from Afternic, NameJet, Igloo, Sedo, Enom, and a couple other companies, in addition to independent domain investors.
  • I was going to mention that DNS is now allowing buyers the chance to use a payment plan for their purchases, but Mike covered it.
  • First quarter estimated taxes are due a week from tomorrow. If you run a small business, you’ll probably need to pay estimated taxes soon.

  1. Hey Elliot,

    Just got into tennis this year and boy is it tough.

    It’s a lot of fun and a great workout, but it’s going to be awhile before I get the technique right.

    Happy tennis playing.

  2. Hi, I really enjoyed the victory of Panathinaikos over Olympiakos these past 3 days, for those who are fans of european bsketball.

  3. I like both hockey and tennis. . .

    I’m excited about an upcoming development plan for Puckville. . .

    My mother still plays tennis and she’s 70+ years old. . .
