Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

The owners of bomb.com are selling their domain to save their family from financial ruin.

Bryan and Lisa Carter registered the domain in 1994. Eight years on and they're reluctantly auctioning it off on e-bay to pay off a "mountain of debt" after Lisa became ill and Bryan lost his job.

The bidding for bomb.com starts at $15,000 although Bryan reckons it could be worth as much as $170,000.
He's looking to make at least $25,000 - with $15,000 clearing his debts and the rest being used to cover any future medical bills.

Said Bryan: "Unfortunately my wife succumbed to a severe case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder last year that left her in a constant state of anxiety and panic, and has caused her to need constant monitoring."

"While treatment is actively being followed and recovery is occurring, the slow pace of getting back to normal has drained our financial resources to the limit."

If the sale of bomb.com exceeds $25,000, Bryan says he'll donate the surplus to the American Cancer Society.

The Auction started on June 10 and will close in three days time. At the time of writing there were no bids for the domain. ®
