I just found this page of dropped domains from the 14th of July 2006. Low and behold:

rubbermaid-supplier.com
ruben-gil.com
rubenerd.com
rubiconmercantile.com
rucksackwanderers.com
ruddockphotography.com

In 2006, I moved to another webhost. The previous mob wanted several hundred dollars to transfer ownership of the domain to me. I wrote about this rort back in January. It took a few years, but I eventually got it back.

Lesson learned, always register your domain with a third party, such as Hover!
