    Domain names are fun

    I just registered mpegbox.org

    They got mpegbox.com before I did. :-( well they registered it some time in the last year and I didn't...

    Before I named my site, I did a search on mpegbox on all the search engines and nothing but some thing in Japan turned up.

    I'm going to have to revamp my site now with mpegbox3 stuff and mpbs1 info.

    heh, I registered www.arbytech.com a while ago.

    I swear I will put everything on there when I'm not busy with school...

    Almost every domain name i've looked at registering has been taken, yet gives a dns error, or is like www.bgoodman.com and is just a site, setting there
    i'll get one, eventually

    Heh, finding a good domain is now an art (its also an addiction, as i now have 20 or so domains ). And my first choice for my mp3car wasn't taken (tho a largetype corporation may some day take me to court over it ).

    The worst is www.mp3mini.com which is owned by greatdomains.com, and if I want it, it'll cost me $300+ looks like I'll have to stick with the .tk for now.

    And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows?
    www.mp3mini.co.uk (Does what it says on the URL) www.openclassic.co.uk (The new car, with zero rust!) www.rob-web.co.uk (My other site)
    Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)

    Domain Names suck. All the "ODYSSEY" sites are taken. I'm still trying to think of another good name.
