I've been meaning to get a new domain for a while now, so that I can bring all of my webbishness together in one spot. I have blogs, portfolios, Welsh sites, various profiles and footprints and god knows what else out there, scattered across the intarweb, and I thought it was about time I tidied it all up a bit into one big heap.
So I started looking for domains, ideally suw.something. It turns out that despite the received wisdom that all three letter domains have long since gone, that is not the case. None of the suw domains are being used by a company. Most of them are simply being squatted by opportunistic wankers who want to make $400 out of anyone stupid enough to pay. Almost all my TLDs are being squatted – .biz, .com, .info, .net, .org, .us, .co.uk – and the exotic TLDs like .cc or .be are too expensive for me right now. I had considered suw.me.uk, but along with suw.us, it doesn't sound quite so good when you say it out loud.
Ergo, I present to you, my new acquisition suw.org.uk. I can't do anything with it until I get back to Dorset so the space is essentially empty, but it's mine, and I own it.
In the meantime, I shall be hoping that the cybersquatting bottom-dwelling pond-scum who have nothing better to do than try to wangle money for nothing have a nasty fall and then develop gangrene. I hope they rot in this life, because I'm too impatient to wait for them to arrive in hell.
