Iran.com sold for $400,000

I got this link from a friend over MSN, interesting read, almost over a million dollars spent on domains. Rick Latona of DigiPawn.com went on a spending spree this week and more than half a million dollars later he was the proud new owner of Iran.com ($400,000), TrackAndField.com ($57,000), Territory.com ($30,000) and Gutter.com ($12,500). The first three names all landed on the top half of our new Top 20 chart and Gutter.com just missed making the Big Board. All four names were acquired in private transactions. In addition to being the biggest sale reported this week, Iran.com is the 6th biggest sale reported so far in 2007. You can read the full article here at http://www.dnjournal.com

Fortier & Co. Makes Stylin’ Body Armor -

Those of our readers who are aspiring rap artists should pay close attention. Frontier & Co. works with big name clothing designers like Burberry, YSL, Kenneth Cole, etc. to design body armor that blends in naturally with your apparel. Take for instance this beautiful trenchcoat from Burberry. It uses ballistic fibers that are stronger than steel, yet lightweight, to protect you from oncoming bullets. It also doubles as an incredibly handsome coat.

Unfortunately, protection and style do not come cheap. The aforementioned coat will set you back $2195 for the basic model. That means you could end up spending some serious cash if you’re worried about being taken out by an AK-47.

But people working in this “business” aren’t safe anymore: Alexey Tolstokozhev (btw, in Russian his name means ‘Thick Skin’), a Russian spammer, was found murdered in his luxury house near Moscow. He has been shot several times with one bullet stuck in his head. According to authorities, this last head shot is a clear mark of russian hit men (known as “killers” in Russia). Tolstokozhev was a famous spammer who sent millions of e-mail promoting viagra, cialis, penis enlargement pills and other medications.

New LinuxCOE helps admins customize distros

This is a really neat idea. You can roll all of your scripted installations for all of your distributions into one application, instead of configuring each distributions application. For example, if you wanted to install RedHat, you no longer need Kickstart. The same would go for Ubuntu, no more preseed. Just one application to handle all of the scripted installations.
