The Great OpenProjects Cleanout

Posted 28 Jan 2003 at 22:14 UTC by dan Share This

A general heads up to people with DNS servers who might be interested: apparently will soon become available, and perhaps it would be good if someone community-minded grabbed it.

It's arguably a little pricey, though...

why openprojects changed its name to freenode.

imho, $5000 is outrageously ridiculous. lilo might as well go back to begging for money, i think.

christ: that's "grubbing" for money.

True enough, raph. :) Anyway, I'm not worried about whether anyone picks up the domain immediately. With the timing of the name change, the old domains weren't terribly useful, so I figured I would just note that they're available. I'm not going to give them away; if they're worth something commercially, doubtless someone will contact me, otherwise I'll hold onto them.

I have no opinion personally on whether the defunct former domain name of a community project has some intrinsic importance to the community. It's a nice name, but I suspect that anyone with a dictionary and a bit of creativity can come up with something else that suits their purposes.

If $5000 is too much, try for $6.95:

amazing how much difference a couple of letters makes... ;-)
