We like to share our thoughts on certain subjects - domains, online tech, current affairs etc. We'll try to keep it as active as possible with regular updates, it will be both satirical and serious at times.

I'm watching people who I once respected in this industry lose their credibility by referring to the revoke Article 50 Brexit petition which is on the Governments website. We are in an industry where the power of bots is well known, it is what powers the drop catching world. All of a sudden once credible individuals (one especially) are disregarding bots and have convinced themselves, or outright lying to others that the 3m signatures on the Government website are real. I'm not that sure on what to say anymore. There is a petition that has no Capcha protection of any…

Baffling Logic of Government's Porn Pass

Our MPs are beyond ridicule sometimes, but no matter low they go, they can always go lower. This time their stupidity on the Porn pass idea is making a mockery of Parliament. From next month, they have come up with the brightest of ideas. To view porn sites, you will need to purchase a Government porn license. Sometimes you just have to laugh out loud. There are a couple of points to this which defy any type of logic. First of all, if these politicians genuinely thought that they could turn off porn sites to anyone without a pass. Why…

Yellow Vests and .uk

I noticed something a touch odd last week. The yellow vest protests have of course spread throughout France, and recently into Belgium. It was likely that the domain names in the UK would be registered either by those wanting to sell yellow vests or those wanting to co-ordinate similar troubles over here. The domain name YellowVests.uk was registered on the 3rd of December, by the French provider OVH.com. The weird thing was that YellowVests.co.uk wasn't registered until the 4th of December. I think it is safe to say that the new registrant of the .uk is a French citizen. This…
I am pleased to have just completed a deal that has seen me lease out all of our domain names and active websites for a period of three years. The deal which was completed a few weeks ago let's me focus on just one project going forward. I've been wanting to do this for sometime and having a number of web projects all ongoing at the same time but in different fields - has made things more stressful and harder to manage. I also wanted to focus more on a offline business, sort of offline. My aim is to try…

GreyWing Buys Avoid.com For $117,500

We are pleased to report that last month we managed to secure the domain name Avoid.com for the price of $117,500 from Nametra who is based in the US. The name was one that I (Graeme Wingate) had been trying to get hold of for sometime but circumstances never allowed for us to meet on price with Andrew over at Nametra. In the last month or two we finally managed to come to an agreement - well my colleague and Andrew hammered out a price - and a sale finally completed. The name has been acquired for a future project…
