gentleman in Alaska has held that domain for a couple of years but hadn't
put up a page, and graciously allowed the transfer of this domain name.
His last name? BOWMAN. His first name? JOAD.
And no, he is not an archer. Just one heck of a nice guy, who found the
coincidence as strange as I did. Joad Bowman. The world is
indeed an interesting place, and thanks to Joad for transferring the domain.
