I Own Me!

Here's something that will appeal to some of you.  And by "some" I mean "the nerdy geeky sorts" for I have recently attained another level of Geekhood.

On Monday, my mobile rang and usually if I don't recognise the number, or if it's withheld, I don't answer it.  However, answer it I did, and for once, it wasn't someone asking for money or "a few minutes of my time" nor even was it the school telling me Jaysen was a prat and fallen over.

No, it was the people that I bought 0ddness.co.uk through.  After confirming who I was (THEY phoned ME for goodness sake!) they told me that when I registered 0ddness, I also tried to register another domain, and by doing so, had put basically used their "Notify me when available" service.

Yeah, I did it by accident, but still...

So, after offering me this domain that had recently come up, I told them I couldn't justify spending £10 on something I don't really have a need for.  No, it's not a lot of money, but still.

However, the very nice person on the phone whittled it down to a fiver.

Well, the nerd in me was already screaming I should take it at a tenner, but now, at £5, I couldn't silence the nerd, and while my reply was "Well, thank you, that's excellent, I will take it" my inner nerd was screaming "GIMMMIE GIMMIE GIMMIE BUY TAKE IT GET IT BUY GIMMIE!"

So, 24 hours later, I get the email telling me that yes, I now own:


Hehehe yes, go me!  Go Dan, Go Dan!

However, I'm not totally sure what to do with my new-found fame.  I could just direct it to here - keep 0ddness as 0ddness, but have the url aim this way.  Or I could do a single, sort of CV dossier page if I decide to convince someone to give me a job.  Or, I could just point it at something gross for comedy purposes ;)

Answers/Suggestions on a postcard :D

That's not bad. You're catching up with me with the number of domains owned!! Fasthosts.co.uk do them at £2.95 (co.uk) per year, so if you had paid £10, you'd have been ripped off.
