A first time domainer point of view well worth reading over at Supernatural Agency

Bill Gates contemplates his last day as he approaches the end of his full time position.

I am about to head of and drive 100 miles each way to pick up a bundle of cash from someone for one of my first major domain sales, should be able to comment on Tuesday but let’s just say the annual subscription to New Scientist has paid for itself.

  1. HAHA… Great Chuck humor. How do people come up with these things 🙂

  2. Good to hear search engine adverting is on the up. Does this correlate with all internet advertising?

  3. Wow, I wasn’t expecting that from Google! They have a great sense of humor. But let’s hope that Chuck doesn’t find out about it, because I’d hate to see Google roundhouse kicked into next week.

  4. that game is weird…. very weird

  5. Love the Google thing! It’s great that a company that size have a sense of humor.
    Looking forward to read about the sale Scott!

    Cheers,
    Martin

  6. Hey, look at the URL, it’s not Google who put up that find you find you thing. Must be some great SEO, as we all know when you press “I’m feeling lucky”, you automatically go to the site on the first result.

    • Hehe of course. Doh! Should have known better, man was I an easy phishing target! I have a half good excuse but it doesn’t matter. Thanks Don.

      • Haha. I’ll bet my hard drive you never noticed that pressing Google Search wouldn’t work. And what was that half good excuse? Close to being bad, eh? 😀

  7. Your hard drive is safe. Well, it’ll look like I make this up but since you ask… I was using Firefox in fullscreen mode and had hid the toolbars, hence no visible url. The screen resolution on the device(Asus Eee) is 800×480 and viewing that page with more than one tab open the text “This page has no affiliation with Google” isn’t visible unless you scroll down, which I didn’t. And, my brain was switched off 😉

  8. Errr … that game gave me nightmares. So, for lack of a better word, strage.
