    Atari finally let it go then, Ocean were trailblazers in their day. Great catch.

    Nice catch. I remember this one was renewed two years ago (as was dropping back then). Surprised it dropped considering.

    Same here, given that they let it go close to the wire on that occasion too, I'd have sworn it was going to be a late renewal, or a Nominet intervention.

    Thanks for comments guys. I was chuffed to pieces to catch it, as you'd imagine.

    Currently at just £2600 with a little over 3 days left to run.

    You have had some amazing catches, but I reckon this one will be the best this year.

    Will end up near 10 times its current bid.

    Hi Rob,

    Have you let Oceanfinance know about this?

    Secured loans are picking up pace again and this would suit their brand perfectly..with all the tv ads they do they'd be crazy to miss it!

    Pop all their board a recorded letter Rob, well worth the little outlay.

    That would be nice :D.

    Auction ends at 4pm today – last chance to get your bids in.

    Good Luck.

    Thanks,
    Rob

    www.ocean.co.uk goes to the DL listing, so can roughly work out from that, discounting the domainers having a nose.

    My bet it will end up at 15k+, DL's highest sale on it's way imo.

    I haven't seen any stats Frank, Denys added that graphic – presumably he has.

    Thanks,

    Bit of a crap end time, but ought to fly high.

    Friday afternoons is often the time to get a steal on auctions ...

    Im trying to figure out the stats from the auction views, how long has the auction been running?

    Also, do the visitors all come from direct traffic, people typing in the domain name ?

    Cheers
