    * Mikerowesoft.com - Back alive?

    Everybody check out mikerowesoft.com.

    Don't know if everyone remembers but there was almost a lawsuit about that site, and the guy swapped the site for an xbox and some other things.

    Now, it seems like it's back in the hands of Mike Rowe, despite the WHOIS:

    I'm an adminstrator on Mike Rowe Forums and "Jesus", an adminstrator on the forums has been changing the templates and orginally named it "Kerry Jones Forums".

    I've demoted him and considering to switch to Simple Machine Forums since i'm unable to get in contact with Mike.

    It's his avatar on the forums. I'd say its him. Numerous mentions to "Kerry"

    Good question.

    I'm still not quite sure what's happening though.

    I don't know if any of you actually remember what happened, but Microsoft ceased the domain and, as far as I am aware, began forwarding it to Microsoft.com.

    Could anyone confirm this?

    I don't think so. As far as I remember, there was an agreement between them to let him continue using the domain as long as it was transferred over to MS. I'm not sure if it's in MS' hands now or not, and really don't care.

    It was a good deal for the kid that had the domain. He got a decent deal from Microsoft. The kid that was hosting it got hammered by traffic and had his name all over, but seemed to do well. From what I have seen lately, it is just a few kids squablling over the remaining traffic and who is "boss".

    Mike has probably moved on to bigger better things then dwelling over a has-been domain name and forums. Leaving that to "Jesus" and others to fight over a forum whose 15 minutes have long since expired!

    well as you can see the site is being overran with bots and 'jesus' has made various changes to the template and since i'm unable to contact Mike to renew the $30 upgrade fee for the owned vbulletin license to patch from 3.0.3 to 3.0.7 I feel that may be the only choice to go and fix the website.

    Yes, I believe it was 'jesus' sending out gay emails through "[email protected]" with a message about joining.

    my current username is ULA, but i'm considering to change it back to Kerry.

    Kerry yup that was the email I am talking about. Though I knew something was up since I know how you post and all, and it did not seem like you at all.
