DSAD had a contest last week that rewarded the winner with a possibility of winning $800,000 or more. People left comments guessing the total of three names from the ROTD/Namejet Auction. We had over 30 guesses which is a pretty good turnout for this little old blog. The names and their final results are below
Stop.com $199,999 Was $1 from meeting reserve and nobody bid higher. Can’t believe current bidder hasn’t moved it up one $1 to meet reserve which is a little fishy to me. Can’t tell me that if they are willing to pay $199,999 that they wouldn’t pay $100 higher. But that’s for another story.

And when it was all said and done, Fatih took home an amazing…………………………………………….
So Fatih, you are not a rich man but you are richer than you were yesterday. Let me know how you’d like me to spend the money, I mean SEND the money. And thank you everyone for playing.
