IKE’S LIST OF DOMAINS AT AUCTION FOR Tuesday, August 22nd

Aug 22 2017

It was good to see Mike Carson on the DomainSherpa review, though I have to say I missed the trucker hat he normally wears.

I hope no one out there burned their eyes out staring at the eclipse.

There was a lot of crypto talk again which I think is a good thing. I’m no block chain expert and until a few months ago I had no idea what they were even talking about. With just a little bit of understanding it’s easy to see the huge potential of the space. Not only for improved transactions and cool sounding money, but for the endless possibilities that the concept is capable of accomplishing.

If there’s one thing that will hold back or ruin cryptocurrency in the US, it’ll be the government and their f’d up regulations and bureaucracy.  It’s already a bit of an issue, when it comes to depositing money on some of the exchanges or participating in an ICO.  I think a lot of this might just be that companies don’t want to get screwed or have to change things when the US decides to change one rule or another.

Seriously, the government can take anything and mess it up once they get their grubby inefficient paws on it. There’s the obvious examples like the post office. I know it’s over simplistic to compare them to companies like UPS or FedEx, but it shouldn’t be.

How can we have a business that works hard, innovates and makes a profit, while a subsidized government entity does the same thing for a loss. Well I guess there’s my answer, the one works for it and has to make it the best to thrive, while the other rolls on doing whatever they want with the endless supply of money they’re given.   There’s no incentive to make anything better.  

Here’s another great example of the insanity of government that I might have mentioned before,  can’t remember if I have:

When I was in Iraq as a contractor, I got to see this first hand. I worked for the DOD as a firefighter, we were assigned to base and force protection only. We weren’t out driving around the countryside putting out fires, we stayed on the base.

Haliburton had the majority of the logistics contracts, I  worked for another company that had been subcontracted by KBR (At that time KBR was the Logistics subsidiary of Haliburton). KBR was tasked with purchasing the majority of resources and equipment needed to run the bases. As a side note, KBR subcontracted some portions of the logistics, usually a specific HR type needs, to other companies. I can only assume this was to make it look like there were numerous companies involved and not a monopoly. 

Here’s how the logistic contract worked. KBR’s contract with the Army was set up with “cost plus” purchasing, so every dollar they spent on supplies they made a percentage of money. I don’t know what the rates were, but an example of cost plus would be buying the famous $500 milspec hammer and making $5 just for buying it.

What the hell kind of system is this? They were incentivized to spend as much money as possible.

I arrived toward the beginning of everything, at least logistically, at the end of the summer in 2004. When our Fire equipment finally started to arrive, (we waited for months using old army crap in Balad) it looked like they had opened an equipment catalog, closed it and said, “I have know idea what that stuff is, just buy everything.  

In January 2005 I went to FOB Ramadi in the Al Anbar province, (the place Tom was talking about when Ramadi.com was up for auction). Our mission was to transition base fire and rescue services from the Marine firefighters currently operating in that role.  The equipment started to trickle in a few weeks after we arrived. The first apparatus that we received for our 2 square mile base were brand new bright red targets,   tanker, a medium duty rescue, and a Jeep SUV command vehicle. Additional apparatus arrived later.

We also got full shipping containers full of rescue rope, no less than 3 floating pumps and various other exotic firefighting equipment. Floating pumps basically draft water from a static water source as a stand alone unit. I don’t know of any department where I work or have worked, that uses these or has one. I’m sure there are some that I don’t know about and I can see them being useful for rural departments with large bodies of water, but we were in the damn dessert. There was no chance of ever using one of these stupid things let alone 3.

The tallest building on the base was two stories high, so thousands and thousands of feet of rescue rope was pointless along with the millions of $ of other equipment that was sent to us.

But for every unusable, pointless, piece of equipment they shipped to us, KBR was making money. This is how the government works, they spend money just to spend it.

They’ll study the shit out of something and then study the study just to see if they can make a better study next time. They make confusion and useless paperwork the key to ensuring continued funding of some worthless project that helps no one.

Another example, also in Ramadi, was the 80+ tradesman contractors that were living there. These electricians, plumbers, carpenters and so on weren’t allowed to do any work on the base for the military, do to a contract issue. Apparently there was some glitch in the paperwork, so while the Army was paying for them to live and work on the base, they couldn’t do anything other than make improvements to their own facilities. Basically they existed on the base building themselves a little village to live in and no point to being there.

This isn’t a political rant or a call for anarchy, it’s simply a first hand view of how government works regardless of the party in power.

Somehow, maybe out of sheer dumb luck or the ravings of a mad man, I’ve drawn a parallel of what the Us government will do to the blockchain and cryptocurrency if they get more involved and try and regulate it or the users.

    Ha funny stuff.

    I had a usps guy the other day yell at me because parking 15 away from a mail box didn’t give him enough room,
    I said you can easily put the mail in the box, back up 3 feet and off you go.
    He said they were not allowed to back up their vehicles. He was totally serious and even showed me a sticker on his dash saying so. A delivery service that uses vehicles but won’t use reverse gear. I’m amazed they lose money.

      I read your np post, I never look at the traffic numbers because I know for a fact that that they can be total crap. With that said I don’t think it’s malicious or manipulated. Godaddy auctions only shows traffic for their expiring inventory so there’s really no way for someone to benefit from jacking up the traffic before the auction. Godaddy is simply taking the amount of hits the name gets during the period of time between expiration and auction. In most cases it’s probably bots. A ton of names are link farmed, obviously this doesn’t work anymore for ranking, but bots still crawl those links everyday. I had a total shit name with shit bot traffic go for a couple hundred bucks. Godaddy got the money since it was expired, and soneone wasted the money. That name never made a dime in parking. Godaddy could and should change the “traffic” removing the bs bot traffic, but as this point illustrates, it’s making them lots of money. So don’t ever buy a name based off traffic unless you’re an seo or know how to check back link
      quality.

        lol .. yeah .. I’ve only been seriously getting into domaining for a relatively short time. But I’ve bought the occasional domain for potential build-out over the years .. and learnt the hard way never to trust GoDaddy when it comes to traffic stats .. lol .. I dropped at least a couple of grand on a few domains that looked like they had crazy traffic and would pay for themselves after a while .. boy was I wrong! lol
        .
        I posted the above more to serve as warning to that effect to the rest of the readers here.
        .
        What really irks me is that the domains are likely blacklisted for parking. Somehow the instant you try some domains to cash parking at GD they know it’s blocked .. but conveniently they seem to not know (or share) this information when trying to sell the domain.
        .
        The industry as a whole constantly tries to compare domains to real estate … and this is actually a case where I personally see this like selling a house with a known “hidden” defect, but hiding that fact to the potential buyer. GD has access to this information .. it should be full disclosure.

    “They were incentivized to spend as much money as possible.”
    Exactly.
    BTC and other cc’s will starve governments and their warmachines. They cannot regulate them. It’s like trying to play wack a mole. Good luck.
    Use cc’s and vote libertarian.

      I meant more from the aspect of blocking entry and attempting to control user actions and behaviors rather than influencing the CC’s themselves.
