hehe, I like the name phpPP .. you could simply rotate and mirror the bbs of SubBlue's logo.

Just to let you all know that I'm just waiting for DNS stuff for the phpPP site to go up.. All I'm doing right now is setting up a forum for wish list, developers etc.. any ideas on what should be added etc?

Especially since he registered with his home address ;)

But serious, this is the problem with domain camping... I wish it were like the old days, where you had to have a good reason for wanting the domain, like if it was your registered trademark or something... the free-for-all just doesn't work.

Well, I don't think it was registered to head off any possible 'phpPP' project, note the registration date for the record: 2001-01-23 19:59:14

The 23rd of January 2001... The guy may have a ligitamate use for the domains :D

Well I got a price from him... he wants $150 for the set.. that would be:

phppp.com
phppp.org
phppp.net

appearently he had some sort of open source thing going as well over on SourceForge and he said to just search for PHPPP over there if you want to take a look at it.. so anyway.. does anyone want to help out with payment? :D

$150 bucks is to much IMO.

Just use phppp.phpbb.com ;-) it's cheaper ;) and there is a clear definiton where phppp belongs to ;)

Note: If someone wants to start this project _please_ inform me. If I have time I would be glad to spend some commits ;)

I agree that 150 is a bit steep.. that's fine with me if you want to use phppp.phpbb.com.. i have space already set aside on my server and have a message board up and running, the DNS hasn't propergated yet.. let me know what I need to do in order to have phppp.phpbb.com pointing to my machine or we can go with that other guy that has offered free space.. :D
