Socoder -> Off Topic -> The Big Domain

I give up: what 'big domain'? What squatter?

Back when I was switching over to the new Socoder2 script, I asked you all what theme you thought should be the primary one.
Damn near everyone voted BlitzCoder.
I asked Krylar if that'd be ok, he said it'd be fine, and suggested I try to get hold of the .com domain, too.
I whipped up the .net, and then started a payment to GoDaddy to go fight for the .com for me.

GoDaddy are the holders of the .com, so I figured if anyone can get hold of the guy, it'd be them.
It's now about 6 months later, GoDaddy have earned a buttload of "We can't get hold of him, shall we try some more? Munymunymuny!" from me, and then in the interim the whole .org crap blew up, leaving me rather bitter about the whole situation.

For a LONG long time, I’ve had the bc code and article archives sat on my hard drive, but never integrated them into SoCoder, because I’m far too honerable to essentially steal all that content and pop it on "my site"
I’ve always said, people put it onto bc.com, and that’s where they expect it to be.
Whether they release code as Public Domain or otherwise, it's not the job of a site owner to take all that content and simply replicate it on their own.

But I figured if I actually get hold of bc.com, then reintegrating the archive will be more "right", so have prepared this site to allow for that integration once I get hold of the .com
Hasn’t happened yet.

It's been about 6 months, and the whole.org thing has left me frustrated.
The fact that I keep paying money for something that GoDaddy seem unable to access, is adding to the frustration.
I think, New Year, I'll probably give up trying.
It's just not happening.
Time to let go of the past, and move on.

Er... what's this about, again?

(Don't you hate it when people ask a question, then forget to come back to see if someone answered? Sorry about that)

I thought it might have been related to that whole BlitzCoder thing, but I didn't know the story about trying to get the actual BlitzCoder domain. Makes more sense, now. Thank you.
