There should be an image here!Our friends at have been great to us over the past few years. They regularly offer coupons and specials to our community, and this weekend is no exception! They are giving all of you their best deal yet:

As a special Black Friday promotion, Go Daddy has given us a special promo code for $5 .com domain names. Use the code BLACKOUT starting at 12:01 am on Black Friday 2009 (11-27-2009) through 11:59 pm on Cyber Monday 2009 (11-30-2009) and get a .com domain name for just $5. Here’s the important part: this code will ONLY work for the first 250 people, so think of the perfect name now, and reserve it first thing on Black Friday! (some restrictions apply — see site for details)

How’s that for a Happy Thanksgiving!? If you’ve been putting off buying a domain name because you just don’t want to spend the money, now is your chance! Who can resist this bargain?

I hope all of you in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving today, and I also hope that you took the time to reflect upon what you are thankful for. From myself, my assistant Kat, editor Bob, and everyone in the Lockergnome family: thank you! If it weren’t for all of you, we couldn’t do what we do.

Yours digitally,
