If I'm going to sell the airplane, the next step is to pick a new domain name. I have a list of requirements:
  • Must not be off-color - I want to be able to use it on a resume if I have to.
  • Must be pronouncable.
  • Must not have wierd spellings of words, so I don't have to spell it everytime I say it.
  • Should be shorter then "tripacerdriver", but I'm flexable on that one.
  • The .com needs to be available.
  • Bonus points if the LiveJournal ID is available.
  • Must not be tightly tied to one hobby.
A friend of mine posted the other day about the idea of getting a tatoo, and I realized this afternoon that this is almost the same idea for a geek. I want something that has meaning, but not something so tightly tied to the present that I'll outgrow it in a year.

Current front-runners, in order of preference:
  • teasingfate.com
  • purplestorm.com (my superhero name! Not available right now, but for sale.)
  • skywhisperer.com
Other suggestions are more then welcome. :)

Current Mood: tired tired

borrow thisoldairplane.com from Michael?

He's not using it anymore (in fact, I believe I let it expire), but it's too hobby-specific, I think.

resume?

Must not be off-color - I want to be able to use it on a resume if I have to.

You put your blog on your resume?

Re: resume?

No, but I'd put an email address on the resume. And I'd like to use the same name for both.

Oh, I just happened to register all of those domains this morning. I'd be happy to sell them all to you though for a reasonable sum, however.

< kidding :-) >

Another vote for skywhisperer.com

Actually, I suspect someone did something similar (probably a web crawler of some type) - teasingfate.com was registered on Friday.

I settled on cheatingfate.com. And this time, I registered it before I posted it. :)

Somehow it doesn't surprise me that someone registered them - there's plenty of people out there looking to make a quick buck on domain squatting.
