R.I.P. Dawdle.com

Back in 2008, a new video game marketplace debuted which offered an easy and convenient way for gamers to sell their new and used games.  This site was called dawdle.com, and I was fortunate to be part of its early growth, being the very first Canadian seller and also one of the first storefronts that offered hundreds of games.  However, sales at dawdle.com were always a fraction of those on other sites, so eventually I pulled out and put that inventory directly into magisterrex.com.  A couple years passed, and I just looked in on dawdle.com to see if things had changed, only to receive the dreaded, “Oops! Google Chrome could not find http://www.dawdle.com”  Did they change their name (unlikely, as one would assume they would forward the old domain to the new one) or did dawdle.com simply pass into Internet history?  It certainly looks like the latter to me, and I’m sorry to see it go.   If so, rest in peace, dawdle.com.
