Aside from being nearly definitely proof that no good .com domain names are available at reasonable prices, Fiverr, is a very interesting and possibly addictive web site which enables people to buy and sell services -- as long as they cost $5.
Fiverr is the brainchild of Shai Wininger and Micha Kaufman. They seem to have hit on one of the really annoying things about buying and selling services online, the enormous time and effort it can take to make a simple transaction. With fixed-fee predefined transactions, the process could be a lot more efficient.
I signed up today and bought six services, for a grand total of $30. None of the vendors have yet replied, but I'll post back about how they do next week.
Check it out, it's an interesting system.

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
Awesome, amazing idea from these people Some things are really strange though, but this might be an awesome website to buy some great stuff for cheap prices
Thanks for sharing
Just found out that the site is reported on Yahoo! Finance: what-people-will-do-for-five-bucks: Personal Finance News from Yahoo! Finance
Pretty cool stuff there. I hope they don't have a huge registration process to give it a try quickly.
Will, let us know how it went, did you get your services completed as expected?
btw, I realize all good domains are gone, but double rr at the end is kinda lame ..
I had two sales... then left the site. Why? Because I realized there is a minimum payout! I'm certainly not going to be doing enough business there to reach the payout, and figured I'd quit wasting my time there, in that case.
