SANS - Survey on application security programs

DotComGuy - the man who spent an entire year in a house living off entirely what he could find on the Net - is to change his name back to plain old Mitch Maddox.

After four years of being DotComGuy, he's decided legally to change it back again.

Keen to cash in, this stunt man is flogging the registered trademark - DotComGuy - and the domain name registration www.dotcomguy.com.

The auction is being conducted via his site. The closing date is 30 April.

Said a press statement: "Mitch's life-changing decision creates a unique opportunity for a fortunate company to purchase this one-of-a-kind trademark, garnering instant name recognition. He will be selling the trademark, domain name and the notoriety associated with the name."

Whatever. ®
