I just saw a charge on my credit card for a domain renewal for $990. When I registered it last year it was less than four bucks.
Yeah, they get yo with a low entrance price and then jack up the fees for renewals :confused:
My .io domain name is like $40/yr to renew when I got it for free. I kinda wish I stuck with a .com
I want to schedule a Virtual offsite for my team, but I am struggling to come up with interesting team building games. We have already done a Trivia game (with the content focused on our team members). My current list’s activities are short and I want to set aside 2-4 hours to do them, but so far I have: • Each team member: Share 1 personal or work related victory (we shipped a feature!) and 1 personal or work related challenge (I haven’t been making time to get out of the house) • QuizBreaker: Asks questions to each team member and everyone has to guess each other’s answers. e.g “Which team member said, they want to travel to Mexico next year?” • Share a photo from your apartment / life (and maybe guess which team member shared the photo like in QuizBreaker?) • Stretching session (I might actually just do this weekly to encourage everyone to move more) • Scavenger Hunt (Who has the oldest thing in their house? Who has the most Yellow thing? Find a hand written letter?) Things we already do: • Trivia game • Board games (weekly) • Virtual Happy hours (weekly) • Virtual Workout HIIT / Yoga Sessions (weekly) Unfortunately, we don’t have a budget, so we are limited to free activities. What are y’all doing to encourage community development in your workplaces?
No, that's not really what happened.
I don't register domains that skyrocket in price because I tend to just keep them hanging around.
If it had gone from four bucks to $40 I'd not have batted an eye, but I've never in my life registered a thousand dollar domain.
the renewal price is based on the extension, right?
It doesn’t matter the “value” of the domain
Great question. I don't know what it's based on.
I had a domain with the same extension renewed last month for $13.
Playing the Jackbox games was pretty fun with coworkers
yeah, I have heard that mentioned a few times. I have played it with friends too. Since we don’t have a budget, I was trying to avoid paid experiences.
I honestly just bought the quadpack on steam for $100 and ate the cost - my team has gotten together for ‘virtual happy hour’ pretty much every other week, so I felt like the personal cost was worth it… (I’m pretty sure I even got it on sale, but I can’t promise that…)
highly recommend Jackbox as well
I would suggest just giving everyone on your team the day off
Due to cost cuts, we only work (and are paid for) 4 day weeks now. July 4th was painfully long b/c that meant 4 days in my apartment with nothing to do :confused:
Does anyone else get iMessage spam from email addresses? I don't even know how to send one, fml
Maybe 1-2x per year
Draw.io and type racer while drinking is fun!
That is the one we’ve used for our happy hours
