Rescue iAmerica

old iAmerica LogoA few of us former employees of iAmerica are attempting to bid for the iamerica.net domain name. Since most of us have little disposable income to throw at a domain auction, we are hoping that some other folks will come forward to help us aquire the domain.

We have it and now I need to get up $691.00 to pay for it. I list the contributors here:

  • Jess Planck: $???.?? (in other words I’m stuck with balance)
  • Tommy Johnson: $100.00
  • Cricket And Erek Adams: $100.00
  • Bob Miller: $95.00
  • Al Roethlisberger: $50.00
  • Luke Parish: $46.00

Left to get: $300.00

I’m sure it will be fun!

  1. So far it is bidding at $116.00. There looks to be some possible other ex-iAmerica folks in the bid list. There are at least 4 of us willing to put some cash on the line.

  2. I have purchased iamerica.net for $691.00. I will need as much help to pay it off as I can, so if your an old member of the gang and want to help. Click that stupid donate button.

  3. Damnit, and here I was playing the demo for Prey on the 360 in the living room without my cell on me. Good to see it was won by the “original” owners so to speak. Haha. I’ll have to flip some cash your way when the roomate pays me for rent and bills to help recoup costs.

  4. It is on it’s way to NetworkSolutions. I’m going to host it first. I’ll throw adwords and the donate button on it as soon as possible.

    After that – What the hell do we do with it?

  5. I can host the DNS here at NTTA, if you like. BTW, a donation from Erek and myself should be in your account.

  6. I’m off to grocery shop. So give a donation.. click an ad link… however you can help!

    I’m sure that at least at some point we have to figure out what to do with it. But I’m sure that everyone who donates at least $25 should at least get an e-mail address. But that will have be discussed by the final owners. Check the list above to see who they are.

  7. Man, that was hard! hod92okirn5x had set a max bid of $666, but of course we didn’t have any idea during the bidding process how high he/she would go. We really shouldn’t have gone higher than $360, but dammit! I suppose we just spent too much time working for iAmerica.net. Anyway, the auction was damn exciting.

  8. Yea I’m still wondering if it is someone we know. I wish they would have used a public name or real name.

    anyway. here it is.
