    Really, they weren't on my drop list. Were they suspended before expiry?

    Thanks Dave. Completely off my radar, looks like they will end up on Domainlore.

    Had that one loaded the past four days. Bloody typical, the one day it's not loaded, it drops :mad:.

    Thanks. As a suggestion, could that list be seen by registered users only (have to be logged in)? I suspect someone saw the £1K for ipods and decided to renew it in the last hours.

    Well, if you leave possibility of a last minute renewal.. - advanced bid was put by someone less than 24 hours before the drop. I can only think that someone regular (i.e. a member) @ DomainLore could have noticed it and rushed to contact the owner. There is no way owner would realize it on his own. Unless he also visits auctions and saw domain he forgot to renew.

    It could have been the Registrar that renewed it, without the owner doing a thing.

    Most Registrars poke around these places.

    The owners of the ipods name own 8500 generic domains, see here: Sitefinders Portfolio

    I don't think they would have let that drop, they probably leave a lot of them to the last minute to renew them, just to annoy catchers :)

    @ Lee, isn't it cutting your nose off to spite your face by trying to catch so may each day, surely it's better to go for one or two of the best ones maximum, then if you get lucky with those, load the others if they have not already dropped?

    It was, and the owner is also the tag holder. I suspect someone got in touch with them. It'll probably be in firestars name in a couple of days :)

    Cheers Dave - upgrading my commodore 64 to a 128 has done wonders for my catching script :)

    Sometimes yes sometimes no, sometimes you get lucky with the rotation, didn't make any money when chasing one a day for a week, have to even it up some days, most days.

    Both dissolved companies. Have Nom got a direct link to Companies House these days, they've got really cute at deleting them? They're spoiling it for cold callers now!

    @ Lee, there's a UK sweets company who use that fruit name for their business, it says on their "about us", page, see below, I'm sure you'll be straight on to them :)
