A North Carolina man is now $35,000 richer thanks to a few advisers to former President George W. Bush who allowed his library's Web site address expire.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reports Tuesday that Web developer George Hunger was searching through a list of expiring domain names two years ago when he noticed a treasure. The Web address www.GeorgeWBushLibrary.com was about to expire.
He bought the rights for $5. Hunger said he recently sold them for $35,000 to Florida-based Yuma Solutions, which the Bush Library Foundation said is in charge of Web site care. Company owner Mark
Mills didn't return the newspaper's calls.
Bush's library and museum will be in Dallas.
Hunger said he isn't looking for another presidential name. BarackObamaLibrary.com is already taken.
