    Well done Dale!

    Roughly £60k I imagine with the weak dollar too?

    Thanks Frank - yes - joint effort by Hubbard Media (Simon and me). Circa £60k as I recall when it arrived.

    Nice sale. Looks like an American company are the new owners. I always thought that historically 'flats' was the terminology used here in the UK, that said in the last few years it feels like 'apartment' now describes a more 'classy' flat.

    A very good price, but one that also looks "about right" - both parties should feel equally happy. Well done, chaps!

    Some good news for the .co.uk market.

    Wonder if their initial offer was "I'll give you 50 quid for it" :)

    I wondered, at the time, if apartments.co.uk was the unspecified domain name that @aZooZa had fairly recently referenced developing in this thread.

    Would it matter if it is?

    I wasn't asking a question, just making known my thoughts known now given I was aware their company was the registrant of this domain name after observing his comment in the apartments.com TheDomains.com sale blog post.

    As regards your question about whether it would matter if it was, it might matter to some people if someone was attempting to understand how he/they might do business in respect of something else.

    Very convoluted :D, but I suppose it would be interesting to know the history of ownership on this domain and whether an offer out of the blue secured it versus plans to develop; up to Dale whether he cares to discuss.

    This from another thread which I posted:

    "Can't really say too much chaps, as there's an NDA in place in the chain, but essentially; Simon and I found a purchase opportunity and then a buyer who we thought would be eminently suitable. All worked out fine :)"

    Thanks all for the good wishes.

    David, you are a complete nincompoop. I'm getting tired of your pompous bullshit. I actually think that in many ways, you're conflicted here; so judgmental that you almost might consider recusing yourself really. It's my opinion that you're doing neither yourself nor Nominet any favours by pratting about in this forum, especially playing 'Dick Detective' by posting shite that anyone can Google, just because the grapes are so sour for you. You've got to be some heavyweight village idiot to have this supercilious crap in your signature: 'PM's not accepted...'

    Rather tame today. ;)

    For someone so ancient you appear to get far too easily riled up when an esteemed poster such as myself makes factual and informative posts pointing out the comments you yourself have posted elsewhere.

    Life is full of conflicts. We learn by managing them. Aren't you a divorcee? I suspect I'll still be involved in the domain name industry after many members here are long gone and you've been hit over the head by someone much younger than you for your wallet. ;p

    The grapes I'm eating couldn't be sweeter.

    This "shite" you've referenced is centred on blog and forum posts you yourself have made in the past.

    Anyone can search Google for something only if they know what to search for and to consider searching for it in the first place. People won't search for something they don't know to consider searching for.

    I could have chosen not to comment and therefore not have enlightened forum members with what I have posted, and have been aware of for ages, referencing two of your previous posts, which would have been no skin off my nose if all you're really looking for is a few people to utter variations of the word "congrats". ;)

    I turned PM's off years ago. Why on earth would I want to bother managing PM's and now paying to be able to export them when I already have unlimited email storage spread over multiple setups, can view them in any compatible client as well as offline, can route them wherever I want with a few clicks, and will be able to search back through them infinitum? :-? Believe it or not people who really do want to contact me don't find having to do it by email to be a barrier.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you too.
