An explosive Web site is up for sale. Bomb.com is being auctioned on e-Bay and has already attracted a bid of $95,000. Whether it's a genuine bid or not has yet to be established but the one-time offer is certainly kosher. Bomb.com was registered by the publishers of Game Zero Magazine in 1994 but now they're looking to get shot of the domain. If they don't find a buyer by Tuesday 24 August, then they'll just hang on to the domain and continue to use it for "personal use". "There are no restrictions on what the purchaser may use the domain for once they have assumed ownership," says the advert. But there is a warning attached to the sale. A year ago the domain was used by a couple of mischievous e-mail bombers based in Singapore. A venture capital company last week paid more than $800,000 for the rights to Drugs.com. It plans to wrap a business plan round the domain name which is concerned more with over the counter cough medicines and laxatives than with illegal narcotics. ®
