Game over for drop snapping

Finally, a registrar is into the game, and not just a registrar like DS, but a seasoned ascii name drop snapper that competes with pool and snapnames.

Phew! But good thing, it's finally an end to the rat race.

I've not been catching drops the past 2 weeks, just checking every now and then to see who's on the game, and how our champion Drew is faring. . :p

Re: Game over for drop snapping

Dunno who they are, but they are a ASCII domain snapper, so they have to be real fast to compete with Pool and likes.

The greater issue is that once a domain snapper comes into picture, the rest will follow.

Re: Game over for drop snapping

They cleaned the house today, missed a few good ones yesterday and friday. Can't call it a done deal yet, but have a feeling that Touchring is right. I guess the next few days will be interesting to watch.

Yes, i thought that Ben was quite lucky to get Shanghai hotels. ;p

But considering that they are sweeping tens of thousands of names every drop on a wholesale basis, and still have such good speed, should give an indication of how remote our chances are, whether enom or tucow script, when it comes to names that are targeted specifically.

Bottomline: If they start targeting, we got almost zero chance. The end game is not far.

He probably has a 15 year old neighbor that knows the system upside down

The few days I ran it I haven't caught anything.
Also for the price you pay for the software you'd think it would have more features...

even a minimize button heh

Re: Game over for drop snapping

I'm still baffled how they can be so fast when they scan through 20,000 - 30,000 names a day. It will take a supercomputer to check 20,000 names dozens of times a second.

So what they said about APIs can't stand a chance against name snappers is true after all.

End game is near, very soon, we'll be bidding each other for names.
