I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..
"Uncle Sam is a national personification of the United States, with the first usage of the term dating from the War of 1812 and the first illustration dating from 1852. He is often depicted as a serious elderly man with white hair and a goatee, dressed in clothing that recalles the design elements of the flag of the United States—for example, a top hat with red and white stripes and white stars on a blue band, and red and white striped trousers".
Its way past mid xxxx in the first 10 mins.
Damn - that Bonkers is going Bonkers again.
He's in the lead for 3 of the names I'm watching just now with a current total of about $ 21,000 - that guy must have some never ending budget !!.
That is certainly a sweet name, but I don't think that it would be very useful for anything...
I agree with you gazzip. the name is quite a unique one. it could be used for different types of websites(news, history, etc).i definitely agree with $x,xxx..
I was being conservative hehehe!.
What is it at?..
$20,250.00 with 2d 22h 40m to go.
The funny thing is I checked the archives and it looks like it was never really fully developed, just one page with a 2 lines of text,( I salute all the Americans who make us ... The most productive nation on earth!).
The email ad and 1 image..
Where can you find the names that are auctioning thereSeems difficult to work that site..
That's a lot..
I'll bet if someone was selling that name no one would have bought it for that much. It's only because it's dropped. I think snapnames makes people crazy...
Totally agreed. Why don't someone get it before dropped? Probably it wold be a lop cheaper...
I bet an accountant would love that name. Or any tax related business...
Observe.com drops tomorrow, bet that one will be a biggie too..
Speaking of big auctions, movietheaters.com is up at ebay, 39 bids, highest bid $33,100 and 19 hours to go...
Yeah, Observe.com would be a big one..
But I don't have more budget now..
Heh, what are the chances that the big guys missed that one? I'm just a one man show here and I have custom scripts I wrote myself running in cron that scan the droplisting services and email me a list of domains that consist of one or more real words the minute they are added. I'm sure some of the big players have even more sophisticated tools...
Strange world, why would someone let the name expire?..
True - but you just never know, I have seen quite a few very nice names drop where just BenFranklin was in but not Vaxis - Bonkers - saggy etc.
They can't be everywhere every time - although it usually looks that way.
We can but hope.
Damn - I wish I had an automated search tool, I'm thinking on getting my whiz kid programmer friend to design a programme for me - when he saw how much they can go for he got interested real fast.
That just might be our next little project..
UncleSam is now $30,000 !! This one might get to mid 50,000 yet ??? (guestimate).
Well Lasher - I guess they all clocked Observe.com.
Observe.com - currently $3,100.
Also just dropped.
- overture with ext 359.
I wonder if this one gets anywhere near the other two previous download typo sales ? Another one for Mr Bonkers no doubt !.
Definetly another 3 for the dnjournal big board !.
Just an update on how old UncleSam is doing !.
UncleSam - currently $67,250.00 with 2h 11 m to go !! EEEK.
Limp.com $6,100.00 with 2h 11 mins to go..
Observe.com is at $13,750.00 with 1d 2h 11m to go..
Downlad.com $9,100.00 with 1d 11m to go..
Just checked UNCLESAM.COM: $100,361.00 with 9 minutes to go...
I would have thought $50,000 to $60,000 at most - ya just never can tell !.
.....and still climbing.
Damn.....Its now at $150,805.00 !!! Scary stuff.
Now, it's at $182,250..... wow! I need more money! :-).
Bonkers and Bum.... slugging it out..... $250 a punch..... $183,250!.
Limp.com closed at $9,299.
Huge.net closed at $$3,800.
Woven.com closed at $3,118.
Observe.com is at $13,750 - closing tomorrow...
I see you were in the same auctions as me...
Yes.... so I guess that means you're not Bonkers because, right now, you would be sweating how you're going to come up with $185,750. I hope that it becomes very profitable.... you can buy a house for that money in most states...
Money does not seem to be an issue for him - he does this every day spending thousands and thousands..
Personally I 'd rather have the house than the name but I'm sure he already has a nice one of them (or three).
WOW ! I think this may be the second largest sale from a snapnames drop ? anybody know of one this size other than a1.com ? .
I think downlad.com and observe.com are going to be pretty big too tommorow !.
How much did a1.com go for? or should I ask..... because if you have to ask, you can't afford it...
A1.com went for $260,250 at snapnames - the highest one yet at snapnames..
Not many people could afford that - even for a house !.
Wow and it's just sitting there as a landing page...
Jasmin.com ended at $310,250 at snapnames in Feb, 2006..
