“10 Signs You Own Way Too Many Domain Names”

gtldsHover published a funny article by Michael Keshen called “10 Signs You Own Way Too Many Domain Names“.

Michael describes what happens to most of the domainers:

“you find an unbelievable domain name that was miraculously still available, then tell someone about it and they give you a blank stare while they try to understand what all the fuss is about.”

Ηere are ten things you can probably relate to:

1 – You search for a domain and it’s already taken…by you.

2 – You can’t hear an interesting word or phrase without then thinking “I wonder if that domain name is available?”

3 – Your morning routine includes opening domain renewal emails.

4 – You know 50 different ways to spell your name because you own the corresponding domain names.

5 – You accidentally add ‘.com’ after every item when writing your grocery list.

6 – You can barely see the side scrollbar when looking at your long list of domains.

7 – You buy domain names as gifts.

8 – You don’t even need to look up your A or CNAME records because you know them by heart after entering them so many times.

9 – Your biggest fear isn’t heights or public speaking — it’s letting a domain name expire.

10 – You’ve searched Hover with words like “butt” or “goat” just to laugh at how they look with different top-level domains.

    • Oh I forgot…Anything new in Greece?

      More bailout money to support the 3 million 50yrs old pensioners drawing free money!

      :Greece has the highest population in the world of people reporting an age of 110 years. The deaths are often not registered and pensions continue to be received. The European Union had found that there are families receiving 4-5 monthly pensions which they are not supposed to get. There were still pensions paid to persons who died in 1953, 60+ years ago. 40,000 girls received monthly life pension of 1,000 euros for the simple fact that they were unmarried daughters of deceased civil servants. This, at a cost to the state coffers of €550 million euros per year. Now they will receive pensions only up to the age of 18. :
