New domain name

I had a bit of fun thinking up of puntastic DNS domain names. I ended up registering eagain.net, the old tv.debian.net name will soon start redirecting there. Need to set up email too.. Vanity domains are soo much fun.

For the rare non-nerd reading this, EAGAIN is the error code you get when you are doing asynchronous programming with non-blocking sockets and would block next. Err, let's just say "I write async code and it's a neat insider joke", ok?

For the nerds out there, here's a bunch of wild ideas I had while figuring out what domain name to register. Many of them are invalid (too short), and most of the good ones are already taken, but in case you need some inspiration:

  • asyn.ch
  • dot.at
  • ex.plo.de / im.plo.de
  • plea.se
  • fal.se
  • belong.us
  • chi.hu (as in Chihuahua, our dogs..)
  • celci.us
  • blo.gr
  • co.de
  • co.ff.ee
  • oh.no
  • wh.ee
  • wh.at
  • sh.it
  • stre.am (taken)
  • up.stre.am
  • down.stre.am
  • upstre.am
  • em.ploy.ee
  • s.tre.am
  • 3x2.net (as in triple-double-w)
  • tribledouble.net
  • 2by4.net (as in clue-by-four)
  • be.am (la.ser.be.am, scotty.up.be.am ;-)
  • dre.am
  • progr.am
  • pu.sh
  • pu.bli.sh
  • form.at
  • anon.ymo.us
  • pla.net
  • mag.net
  • carwa.sh
  • blo.at
  • cave.at
  • repe.at
  • pho.to
  • oct.et
  • pron.to
  • plu.to
  • lot.to
  • dit.to
  • adju.st
  • ang.st
  • arti.st
  • ava.st (type like a pirate)
  • broadca.st
  • inner.net
  • comm.it
  • mis.info
  • foc.us
  • fung.us
  • geni.us
  • gur.us
  • octop.us
  • styl.us
  • stat.us
  • tor.us
  • line.br
  • deco.de
  • while.do
  • un.do
  • weir.do
  • if.then.fi
  • cook.ie
  • newb.ie
  • zomb.ie
  • disk.io
  • comm.it
  • subm.it
  • bat.ch
  • bran.ch
  • epo.ch
  • fet.ch
  • zil.ch
  • gra.ph
  • boo.st
  • fibona.cc
  • from.to
  • justa.com

And for the Finns:

  • mi.au (cat lovers)
  • vai.nu (dog lovers)
  • kir.nu
  • masen.nu
  • tie.dos.to (taken, by non-Finn)
  • hit.to

I'm not going to say anything about the Cook Island's subdomain for commercial entities.
