Fwd: Deployment – Geo Search Revival V1


On Fri, Dec 7, 2012 at 4:57 PM, VP of Awesome <> wrote:

Hi. I know some customers were sad when we removed Geo Search from the website. So, in an attempt to satisfy their Geo Domain thirst, we have added a little drop down / slider thing on the search page titled “geo domain search”. Dropping that down will reveal some basic Geo Domain search options. I’ll be tweaking and improving it in the near future but it should suffice for now hopefully. If we can reach out to the customers that were sad to see the disappearance of Geo Search and find out if it works for them, what they would like to see, etc, that would be awesome.

If anyone sees any issues please let me know.

Sync Domain Expiration Dates: Harmonize Your Domain Name Renewal


So Nick in dev made the exciting announcement about how you can now sync your domain name expiration dates. But before I pushed it live to the blog, I wanted to make sure he’d included everything…

Renew your domains all on the same date

That about sums up the name.com experience: Ultimate User Enjoyment. Nick explains:

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, and Legend (you know who you are),

We’re rolling out a new tool that will allow users to sync the expiration dates for their various domains. As of right now, this option is only available for .com and .net domains (sorry Henrik, you can’t sync your .se domains just yet).

On the page, the user will be able to select the new expire date, then select the domains that they want to have that new expiration date. Then, they must hit “Apply” for those sync products to be added to the cart...

Fwd: Sweden is the best at using the Internet: INTERNAL MEMORANDA REVEALED


In a hushed golf announcer voice: Caroline, our domain concierge, sent out a news article about Sweden beating the world in their ability to use the Internet. This struck Owen, our VP of Awesome, in such a way that he was unable to come up with anything awesome. Taking the opportunity to tout his home country, Swede Henrik posted a Swedish meme of the incredible care offered to their disabled. By then the VP of Awesome was able to conjure a little piece of Americana. (read bottom up)

It’s better than the “meanwhile in America” image I found. Although; that chicken does look delicious.

Fwd: Deployment


Hushed but excited golf commentator: It all began when Salvadore in Dev announced a new “sexier look and feel” to the navigation menu in a user’s account (oh, and he honored P-mo on his birthday). What happened next was expected, a pat on the back from our VP of Awesomeness, but then we were all taken aback by Henrik’s kitty meme. He is Sweden’s gift to America!
To get the most out of this, read from the bottom up. Thank you.

Fwd: So I have some cake


Hushed but excited golf commentator: This sure has spun into fun! Jared started the email chain by asking if anyone wanted his kid’s cake (yah, nice) but it quickly spiraled into a conversation about Gmail avatars. That inspired Nick to add a mustache to Dave, the Master of Dev, and offer it as anyone’s avatar. From there, high jinks ensues, hilarity is had and CEO Bill watches money fly out the door. As with all email chains, you gotta read from the bottom up.

Let it be known that in real life, I can jump slightly higher than that.  I’m not saying I’d get the coin or anything, but come on.

Fwd: This happened right at 1st and university…


Excited but hushed golf announcer voice: Welcome to the inner circle. Jared apparently chased a criminal while on muscle relaxers last night (he hurt his back moving an old school monitor for our 90s video shoot) and somehow we ended with the meme below. We’ll be forwarding internal email threads of insanity & wisdom along to you so you can see what’s going on behind the scenes here at Name.com.
