    Hi Guys

    just thought i'd say "Hello" to anyone who's interested.

    I'm from the south of England, and i'll basically tell you what i wrote in my bio...

    I've been running websites since 2001, i had a stint as a bit of a major domainer 2004-2008 (3k+ names) mainly previously inhabited domain names that i picked up on the drop.

    The good ole' days of domaining - hate mail for "stealing" peoples domains, sob stories for grabbing a domain that they hadn't actually finished with, being exposed in the local paper for being a Cybersquatter, 4 (might be 5, can't remember now) Nominet DRS losses (well, they were trademarks lol) and 2 more where the cretins with IP law on their side just came at me direct.

    Back in that day i was making over £2k a month from parking revenue at sedo alone! Very very different now, where i'm lucky to get £50 a month... getting a bit miffed about that lately so decided to push through with aff marketing, CPA, quote engines etc for some of my names.

    I've slimmed down to 500 or so names now, in prettymuch every industry and niche going and i'm looking to monetise most of them with destination sites over time.

    Dayjob is running a one man business i started in 1996 selling radio equipment, mainly thru my ecommerce site nowadays but like most things it's slim pickings at the moment.

    Looking forward to learning and sharing and making buddies here ... i'm a member of many hundreds of varied forums but looking at the posts here i feel like i'm finally in the right place!

    Jim
