    Woot! That's quite a lot of money to spend on an internet domain.

    ... but, it just reveals how popular this site is. [​IMG]

    I bought the domain on January 3rd of 2003 if I recall correctly [​IMG]
    it was a gift for my friend Kivan, the old URL was gbatemp.2ya.com

    now look what it has become!

    I think that value is highly inaccurate. It's a popular site but it has no commercial value to anyone but spammers or other shady types.

    zophar.net is worth $2,114,448.00...
    ngemu.com is worth $1,268,400.00...
    sex.com is worth $77,263,874.00... [​IMG]
    microsoft.com is worth only $4,335.00...

    whoever is making these estimates is a damn moron.

    So that's where the "GBAtemp" name originated from... What does it exactly mean/represent? [​IMG]
