anonymousAmazing feature @racker. @Tommy is great, and came up with the idea for this site. Props to him, but his best move was somehow convincing the devs on the team to jump on board. These guys are constantly taking things to a new level . @Murat#feedback.
@tommyMy heart goes out to the friends and family of former Vancouver broker Matt Noel, who was a young man, and had worked with Revolver Resources $RZ, BMO, Macquarie, Richardson GMP, Wolverton and PI following an econ degree from SFU, according to a Google search. I did not know Matt but had lot of mutual friends who are memorializing him on Facebook. I don't know the details. So sad.
@tommyI acquired the CEO.CA domain five years ago today.
I had grown up with the then owners, Hani El-Rayess and Paul Clough, who had taken it over from the Consulting Engineers of Ontario by the sheer force of their personalities.
Hani and Paul had shopped it to me for a couple years before I bought it.
I was writing for BCBusiness magazine at the time and had a web development business. They thought I was a logical suitor and were asking $15,000, which had me interested, but was a bit out of my price range.
Then one April 2012 weekend, I ran into Paul on Vancouver’s beautiful Coal Harbour seawall. He was complaining about expensive car repairs.
The domain came up, as usual. This time he was more motivated.
I paid a gold coin and three pieces of silver as a deposit, which they refunded the next day, 5 years ago today, when I funded the $4,000 purchase price.
It was a lot of my net-worth at the time. And I was aware the economics of publishing had been destroyed by the internet.
But I heard a whisper in my head saying, “If you build it, they will come.”
The voice was wrong. It should have said, “Find murat, then they will come.”
Still, it has been the best bet and most fun journey of my career.
Excited to begin a new five years.
@EvenPrimeHow did @Tommy get so damn cool, you ask @anonymous? Simple! He is the epitome of the book, "How to win friends & influence people" by Dale Carnegie. It is either his natural gift, or he randomly reads a page from it every day before work ;p -had to repost it - didn't link @Tommy hehe
@EricTheActorAdd Fred Couples and that would be my dream foursome.

@ocotilloreduxWe will need caddies @Brandon. You are on my bag since I know the @thegalvanizer will be limping thirty/forty paces behind us on @tommy's bag. Physiological pressure to hit the next shot means plenty in this game. (No, I am really not this sort of prick in real life.)
@ocotilloreduxPart of the negotiating practice. Boy @tommy the last time us simple folks here in Saskatchewan actually saw water on a golf course that was not casual, we turned to mush. But you BC folks are down by sea level so I guess I should not bother to bring my driver. ;)
@EvenPrime@tommy - hows the diet coming along? It has been just over a month since we last met. I assume with your discipline and determination you must be down at least 7-10lbs. Hehe - just grilling ya! I've made it 4 times to the gym in the last 30 days - just can't seem to get my butt out there. Im hoping you tell me you've buckled down so I can use you as an inspiration to get my ass in gear! If @tommy can do it while travelling the world - then I can.
@TheGalvanizerWhile we are talking about the site quality etc etc. I would urge all those that have not considered the Pro subscription to check out @Murat's demo - dynamic market depth is amazing and the cost over the course of the year should easily be recouped with a successful trade. Also, supporting @tommy and the developer team is the most likely way you will see this site evolve in a positive way. Not that @tommy wont continue to invest in it regardless but as users I think we should all consider the benefits we have enjoyed and give a little back :)
Link below because I'm lazy (thx @murat)
Hogger@Tommy....what are your thoughts on #ssl deal announced today? Hope I'm not wrong but I bought more ssl today. I think the deal will be very instrumental to sandstorms bottom line in the years to come
