Call me slow on the uptake, but I only recently realised that the "new" .me domain naming extensions would be open to application with a verb... So that we can expect an auction tomorrow for the likes of marry.me date.me buy.me and fly.me....

Now I could not help taking this to another place and realising there would be all sorts of expletives applied that are commonly used as exclamations of surprise/delight/horror or just plain swearing... Needless to say these will probably go to auction too... Though I found B****R.ME is already owned in SF no less!

It got me thinking that IF I had unlimited funds I should love to buy out the F***.ME domain - not to populate iot with any pron or anything - rather to make a site along the lines of an outlandish Guinness Book of Records, slanted towards blog linkage and net news - with things you would never believe - prompting the remark.... "Well blow me down with a feather!" Or more commonly - "F*** me!".

Any other thoughts on this? And is THIS the reason .me domains generally are higher priced than the others? Or is that just shiny newness? Cause I remember .info being a bargain whilst still new also.

You'll probably find .me belongs to some country or small island and they apply a tax to it in return for letting the whole world use it, like .tv and .fm. It supplements the governments income on the side without hitting the residents.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
