BTW - we were able to obtain ptolemy.org after a short bidding war.
The price was $535.  The other guy bid three or four times and then
gave up.

It will take a little while to get ptolemy.org set up to redirect
to the ptolemy site.

Many thanks to Matthew Brooke for pointing out the possible
availability of the domain!



    Matthew Brooke pointed out that the ptolemy.org domain name
    was due to expire, so I put in a back order for it.
    The domain has now expired and I received the following email
    from our back order provider:
    > ... have acquired the domain names listed below. Multiple
    > back-orders were placed for these domain names. As a result, a brief
    > auction will take place for each domain name to determine to whom the
    > domain name will be awarded. The end times for these auctions are
    > listed below and are approximate. Check on the last day of the auction
    > to be sure of the end time. Note that if multiple equal bids are
    > received, the first bidder wins the opening bid.
    The auction ends in 2 days 21 hours.
    It would appear that someone else backordered the domain, so if that
    person is on ptresearch or kepler-dev, then I'd like to avoid getting
    in to a bidding war :-)
    My plan for the domain is to have UCB pay for it and then park it at
    the same place we have:
    So, if for some reason you are bidding on ptolemy.org, please contact
    me so we can come to terms. :-)
