Two years ago, George Huger found a scrap of treasure in an Internet bargain bin -- a lucky turn that just won him $35,000 from President Bush's sheepish advisers.
A Raleigh Web developer, Huger was flipping through a list of expiring domain names when he noticed that www.GeorgeWBushLibrary.com was about to expire. He picked up the rights for five bucks and sat on them for two years, waiting to cash in.
"It was a wonderful turn of events," said Huger, 26, whose company is called Illuminati Karate. "We just bumped into it accidentally."
