Hey Ami, from what i understand all shareholders got this letter. I did not get mine because I moved offices and somehw it got lost in the confusion. I should get it this week. I did hear all of the bad news from some other shareholders. It's all too bad.

I have let them know I am interested in making an offer for the domain name. I do suspect though that if it were to go up for auction, I would end up the low bidder so, not much one can do about that.

I am hoping that I will be able to make an official offer in the next few weeks and that someone there will look at it seriously cause it will be a serious offer.

Jason, Jason, Jason...why don't you put together a consortium? Anyway, domain names are so yesterday, if you get my drift :0)
