    If I see one more person write that the UK has Euros I'm going to bloomin' blow a valve.

    It's Pounds, NOT euros, thank you very much.

    Blimey!

    8,500,000.00 GBP

    =

    16,546,242.32 USD

    And if you honestly believe everything you read in The Sun - seriously, you need your heads examining! And the Daily Mail isn't exactly much better. :D

    Bloomin' hec, soon they'll be quoting from News of The World and all the other gutter rags. :D

    Well, I would sell it, that's a nice chunk of change there, especially in USD from GBP!

    If his site died and he didn't cash in on it, expect another Myspace suicide soon.

    I think you will find its very much alive actually :D

    "You may remember YPMania as being Sharpe News in the past, but DAC Multimedia changed the name to YPMania. It was critised alot during this proccess, but has proved to be very rewarding in the long run."

    "YPMania has received a staggering 4.5million visitor base over the year that we've been operating, but it doesn't end there!"

    It is rather odd, alexa shows nothing and the site is very slow. A strange story from the beginning imo.

    To be honest now days anyone can submit a press release and say whatever they want. I might go and refuse 20 billion for my DP signature today.
