Well, I was playing around here (https://www.tdnam.com/trpHome.aspx) and bought something under the influence of a stupid attack. I am now the not-so-proud owner of the domain Moomba.US. Now, though, I'm not really sure what the hell to do with it. So, I was hoping for help from the board. Any and all suggestions appreciated.

Or you could go over to WakeWorld and post it in the "For Sale" section. There are a lot of Moomba owners over there.

I'm still waiting for milkmania.com to come open:(

I've still yet to figure this one out:o http://www.milkmania.net/





little bit of info from www.mrstudios.net (http://www.mrstudios.net)


Q: What is the story behind MikeRoweSoft?
A: We get this question a lot. Basically, Mike Rowe, the owner of MRStudios ran a company called www.MikeRoweSoft.com (http://www.MikeRoweSoft.com). It was his portfolio for the web design he had completed recently. Microsoft came across this site and demanded that Mike Rowe shut it down as it sounded too similar to their company name. After sending emails back and forth between lawyers, Mike Rowe decided to go to the media with his story. The story blossomed into a world-wide cover story. Microsoft began negotiating with Mike Rowe to see if they could end the situation as soon as possible. In the end, everything was settled. Mike Rowe learned that Microsoft wasn't such a bad company after all. He made a few visits to the Redmond campus and was impressed by the people who worked there.


it would appear that buying a domain name with the intentions of selling it for profit is a no-no:noface: http://www.theregister.com/2004/01/19/microsoft_lawyers_threaten_mike_rowe/

what happened to the American way?:rant:

I'd suggest turning into a website with pictures of said boat. Or, alternatively, you could posts pictures of cows and sheep and the noises they make. The point is, you don't want to be seen as a squatter.

Open up a discussion forum about Mastercraft ski boats :cool:

Maybe some Mastercraft-for-sale ads.

I don't know about cows and sheep, but I do have some registered goats.:D I have no intention of ever turning a profit from this, I just did it for a laugh.
I actually have no idea how to make a website, I guess I'll have to buy some hosting or whatever you do and figure it out. But any other suggestions for content would be appreciated. Since it's for entertaiment anyway, the stupider, the better.
